Amazing guess

Most of the junkettes have decided to enter a friendly pool to see who can make the best guesses regarding where teams will end up on the new Amazing Race (number nine!). There is a scoring system invloved--every week, everyone makes picks as to how they think the Racers will finish that week. For every team you have in the top three that ends up in the top three, you get a point. For every team you have between 4 and 6 that end up there, you get a point. Same for every team between 7 and 9, and then for the final two teams as well. If you are correct about the exact spot a team ends up in, you get another three points.

I will post the results tomorrow, but here are the choices (blogettes listed in alphabetical order). Looks like BJ and Tyler, Joseph and Monica and Eric and Jeremy are early favorites, while there isn't much optimism about the chances of David and Lori, Danielle and Dani or Lisa and Joni (perhaps if your first name ends in an "i" you are automatically suspect).

Thank goodness there are many more weeks to go, because I'm off to a rough start.

I am only in the middle of the episode right now, so I can't post results because I don't know what the results are. But so far, the Race is looking great. I should have results tomorrow, unless someone else wants to tally everything up.

I might be calculating incorrectly, but I have the standings as:

me: 11 (5 + 6 bonus points)
Laura I: 9 (6 + 3)
Red: 7 (4 + 3)
Laura H.: 7 (4 + 3)
Diane: 4 (4 + 0)

I checked, and the point totals look right to me.

I'm not sure if I should make it its own post or just continue it in the replies, so I'll stick it in here.

I LOVED this episode of the Race. I feel like there are a lot of personalities--the more recent races have had some really boring teams, and I didn't see that so much here. I really didn't like John and Scott, so I was happy to see them go, although I was rooting for them and against the Joni and Lisa, since I had Joni and Lisa as my last place team in the tournament.

I am surprised that Scott has any friends at all. He was petty and annoying and really, really bossy. However, I hope that the nickname the "Frosties" for Lisa and Joni, because of their frosted hair, does not leave with John and Scott.

Lisa and Joni are younger than my mom. This cannot be--they look about 15 years older than her. The Frosties nickname reminds me of the Gingers. You would have to watch South Park to understand.

I HATE LAKE. Is that a nicotine patch right under his ear? Must the Amazing Race have a jerky guy on every season? Colin, Ray, Jonathan, now this guy. I hated how he asked Ray and Yolanda if they had everything okay with the motorcycle. It isn't like he was going to help them--he just wanted to rub it in that he beat them. And then when they got to the finish line in fifth, his whole "we thought we were out" was ridiculous. They left the motorbike challenge with two teams behind them. I'm sure he will become more hateful in the weeks to come.

I didn't think that the challenges themselves were that interesting, but I loved that there wasn't bunching, but still an ability to get ahead (a lot of teams made stupid mistakes).

From the previews, I did not think I would like the hippies (hereinafter, "Ben and Jerry") but they were appealing, and I think will be good Racers. My boyfriend is cheering for Eric and Jeremy to win the whole thing because he respects their dream of never working, but being millionaires. And he loves how they say they work as little as possible, just enough to pay the bills. I have to say--I find it appealing too.

Oops. I realized I was too quick to say Bailey's tally was right. Looks to me like Laura I.W. has eight points, not nine. Let me know if that is wrong.

Red, you should have made that comment a post! As much as I have a natural disinclination to like Eric and Jeremy because of their attraction to the Pinkies (gross!), I definitely love their work as little as possible philosopy. I also had a pre-race feeling that I would not enjoy Ben & Jerry, and they definitely were annoying at times, but I think they might grow on me.

Surprised you didn't mention Lori & Dave. They're a good team, but the constant reverse-snobbery references to nerd love are going to get old REALLY quickly. Yeah, you're nerds, there are plenty of them out there, and I'm thrilled that you seem to have a great relationship and have found perfect partners, but LET IT REST.

Sorry, I meant to mention David and Lori. We were doing a "Nerds! Nerds! Nerds!" cheer when they were on. I'm really liking them thus far. She reminds me of Diana from Project Runway (although Diana was cuter).
