The Amazing Race S32 Power Rankings (Top 6)
Nov 25, 2020
- It looks like Leo & Alana finally got the boot, in the same episode we saw a big non-elimination leg, a bit of a shake-up in the alliance, and a pretty cool amount of fighting (both fake and real) in Kazakhstan. Let’s see how we think these teams will fare in this upcoming India SUPER leg (meaning, twice as many tasks).
6. Eswar & Aparna- Eswar and Aparna continue to remain lower in the ranks, even without speed bumps and yields. The thing is, they never do anything truly wrong, but they still end up on the bottom. I just don’t have much faith for them getting to the finals, and with the competition getting stiffer, I just don’t see them as stronger than the teams above.
5. Kaylynn & Haley- Kaylynn & Haley dodged yet ANOTHER non-elimination leg. But I do think they are a better team than their placement gives them credit for. First, I think they were smart for going to a local and trying to unscramble the letters “Sauerkraut.” By then, it was too late, but they managed to use their wit and mental skills to maneuver that task. In the second half of the episode, they made the right move in yielding Leo & Alana, showing that they were willing to put their personal feelings aside to advance in the race. Their track record is bad, which is why they’re this low in the ranking, but I do think they are learning from their mistakes and I could see them shocking lots of people and maybe squeaking through a few more legs.
4. Hung & Chee- I feel bad putting Hung & Chee this low, but I do think they made some GLARING mistakes this week. First off, they told all of the teams the Sauerkraut clue, which strengthened the alliance, then they waited for the rest of them to finish. This allowed other teams to pass them. If they had just left when they figured it out, or not said anything at all, Hung & Chee win the leg. Then they make ANOTHER mistake in telling the football players about the lamb’s head. I just don’t know why they are being so nice to the other teams. They NEED to put themselves first, or they will fall short to their alliance.
3. DeAngelo & Gary- They won the first half of the episode (good for them), and did fairly decent in the second leg. I do think a lot of their help came from Hung & Chee giving them several advantages throughout the leg, but that’s no fault to DeAngelo & Gary. They have been consistent in the middle, but this winning leg puts them a bit higher in the consideration for the final leg.
2. Riley & Maddison- They have been SO consistent, only missing a few details here and there. It would be interesting to see if they would’ve figured out Sauerkraut without Hung & Chee’s help, because that gave them the momentum boost they needed for this leg (and the next). I do think the alliance has been helping them more than hurting them, but I’m really interested to see if it gets a bit more competitive when the last non-alliance members are gone.
1. Will & James- Will and James have been playing the strategic aspect of the Amazing Race that wasn’t very prominent in seasons past. They played completely strategically, telling the sisters to yield Leo & Alana, which allowed for Will & James to get rid of their rivals and have zero blood on their hands. They made the smartest move, and now, with no enemies in the race, I think they’ll continue to succeed as the front-runners to win the whole thing.
I think we have lots of contenders here with Eswar & Aparna and Kaylynn & Haley being the underdogs. I think the sisters have proven this past episode that they have learned from mistakes and are a much stronger team than given credit for. I hope we don’t lose Hung & Chee this episode, but they need to learn from this week and bounce back so they don’t let their allies pass them again. This super-leg will be interesting, but I am going to go with the team I think has improved the least as the most likely to be eliminated.
Going Home- Eswar & Aparna
