Finally, The Final, Final Reckoning: Final Power Rankings!
*All odds are strictly for entertainment purposes only. This is NOT a betting site.
Is that ‘Final’ enough? We’ve got ourselves set for a pretty interesting finale tonight. Four teams, only one can win, and that team could either split the cash or one member can ‘take the money and run, Teej.’
Just for fun, as an appetizer, my odds for this final, if it were individual-based:
Notice anything interesting? How about the top four all come from different teams, meaning this truly is as close to a toss up than ever. If you dig a bit more, taking the best average, Hunter being a close second and Ashley being the best partner of the top four, it would serve to figure that would be the best option. Sylvia and Joss would be second, followed by Paulie/Nat and Cara/Marie.
There are intangibles, as always. Hunter and Ashley individually would serve as strong competitors, but put them together and I think they get weaker. The opposite goes for Paulie and Natalie, as I believe Paulie’s teamwork and good attitude toward Natalie pulls her up. And, to a lesser extent, Joss and Sylvia benefit from that same theory.
All of that said, I still like having two strong competitors, regardless of relationship. Hunter and Ashley lead the way, with a tight race between second and third.
FINAL RECKONING ODDS - PRE-FINALE:
Ashley and Hunter 4/1
Paulie and Natalie 9/1
Sylvia and Joss 11/1
Cara and Marie 16/1
As you can see, Ashley and Hunter are fairly strong favorite. The real battle will be for second, as Paulie/Nat and Joss/Sylvia I think are close. Cara, please don’t use Marie as a scapegoat, she carried the team through the middle section of this challenge, as well as steering the social game properly. Don’t @ me Cara stans. Lol.
