I’ve just watched the finale of The Amazing Race. I’ll update this post with a reaction to the winners tomorrow sometime, but for now, since the race is ending and next time we see it there will be a whole bunch of new racers, let me say this:
I’ll always love you, Mirna!
And let me express admiration for Charla, too. That woman is tough and her spirit seems well-nigh uncrushable, even if the sight of her dressed in a suit of armor in one episode made me think of R2-D2.
Win or lose, these two are my favorites forever. (Well, they may run a close second to TAR-9’s BJ and Tyler, who uttered maybe the greatest thing ever said on TV: “Whoa, don’t get too close to those termite mounds! The termites will eat all the wood in your body!” To which the other responded, “Ow! My peg leg!” Wow, I loved those guys.)
