Something kind of unexpected happened to me on the way to the Amazing Race finale: I fell in love with TK and Rachel.
The reason this was so unlikely is that they're normally the sort of team that would bug the crap out of me. Not so much her -- she's kind of bandy-legged, but cute -- but him, with the dreadlocks and the "maaaaan" all the time. Oh, also the whole "newly dating" thing; normally I would regard that as a recipe for spectacular relationship flameout. But they have ensorcelled me.
I started to realize that I had a crush on them during last week's episode, when I found myself in kind of serious distress at the thought that they were going to be eliminated, and expressed my relief that they weren't with a squeal that was really far too loud to be for a couple of people I don't even know.
