Global_Citizen saidI'm rooting for Margie and Luke. Some will probably disagree, but I think Luke is kinda attractive. I don't care that he's deaf and can't really talk, he's a super nice guy, has some personality, and is apparently fairly smart.
Hmm.... does using the U-Turn still qualify Luke as nice? Unless you're referring to his niceness toward helping the cheerleaders Jamie and Cara, whom I think Luke probably find attractive.
However, seeing Luke communicate and work through the tasks in a different way from the other teams is quite endearing.
Has anyone noticed that the first four eliminated teams were all the couples in the race: Preston & Jennifer (dating), Steve & Linda (married), Brad & Victoria (married), and Amanda & Kris (engaged)? We are now left with two teams of friends (Jamie & Cara and Christie & Jodie) and five teams of family (Margie & Luke, Mel & Mike, Tammy & Victor, Kisha & Jen and Mark & Michael).
Does anyone else find this interesting? Teams in previous seasons have noted that romantic relationship can present unique challenges not found in other types of relationships: family will always be related by blood, and friends lack the sexual tension and emotional baggage facing romantic couples. While communication problems with each other don't seem to be the apparent reasons why these first four couples were eliminated (Preston & Jennifer were stumbled by problems in the Detour, Linda missed a crucial route marker causing her to fall behind, Brad & Victoria took a gamble on a flight and lost, and Amanda & Kris were U-Turned), it does present some food for thought.
