*sigh* My desire to watch this show just went down so fucking much tonight. John Vito and Jill are gone, while team Asshat and Flozach are still in the fucking race. (Zach isn't bad, but he's guilty via association with Flo)
Add to it that every damn shot of the Twins now has to be followed up with a shot of Flo, and that takes the Twins into the "bad" category. Thus, Ken and Gerard are the only team left that I want to watch on this show. They're fun, they make good TV, you could actually see yourself wanting to be around them in real life. So, of course, they'll follow the TAR tradition and come in fourth, ala Frats and Cha Cha Cha.
I'll still end up watching next week, but I won't enjoy it. Much.
The only team I'm rooting for right now is the only team I was rooting for in the first episode: Ken and Gerard.
I'm shocked that it took them this long to get the fuck out of Europe. Usually they take their time getting through part of Africa and some of Asia. Sure they hit up Casablanca, but the next episode they were back in Europe.
I feel for Zach. This is, at it's heart, the same situation that Wil and Tara were in last year, except that Flo and Zach were just a prospective couple and Wil and Tara were separated. The only difference is that Zach is actually a nice guy who is just getting out played by the pretty boys. I've been there, so I can relate, whereas Wil was just an asshole. In a way though, I'm happy for Zach, and I think that Zach might be happy for Zach by this point, seeing as Flo is such a high maintance uber-bitch at this point. Though it's funny that she was part of the Twin Killer alliance early on in the game.
Despite looking like Gru from Angel the twins do NOTHING for me. They're half as charming as the twins last year (Shola and Doyin), and have only been half entertaining when they were sucking charisma from Ken and Gerard. They'll probably win though because they're in good shape and pretty boy white guys ALWAYS win (which was the basis of the Twin Killer Alliance).
If there is a bigger asshole in the world than Ian, I wouldn't like to meet him. Usually even if teams are edited to look terrible, they have one or two moments that help you realize that they weren't SO bad, or that it was just the stress of the race getting to them. Not so with Ian. I feel so terrible for Teri, but then again, she doesn't seem to mind it, so whatever.
Ken and Gerard are the only two left who have been consistantly entertaining and still shown a desire to race hard, much like my pick first year (the Frats who as mentioned, finished fourth, my pick last year Blake and Paige got third. Always the bridesmaid never the bride...). As it is, I think they'll do well (Flo will implode before they get near the finish line, and Zach will probably help her), but I can't see them beating out the Twins in a dash to the finish line.
Vikings (3-9) - Michael Vick is the sweet sweet dagger that stabs into my heart... Badgers (7-6) - Being from Minnesota, qualifying for a bowl, winning at home. Oh, sweet victory. Buffy 7.9 Earns 8 points. The plot for this season is awesome. I want to have Joss Whedon's children. Well...Not really, but the plot IS awesome. (Should I be waiting for the Marti Noxon sledgehammer of plot screwjob at the end?)
I'd say it's HARDLY a "shame". It would've been a shame if he had won and retired undefeated and if people would've tried to put him up there with Marciano, when clearly he was never, EVER, the best fighter even in his own weight class.
