Fans of The Amazing Race are eagerly awaiting to find out if a Blind Date team or the sole remaining dating couple will take home the $1 million prize on the 26th season finale, and now, some hints about potential winners have emerged.
The final four teams-- #RxforLove Hayley and Blair, #TruckStopLove Rochelle and Mike, #SoCal Laura and Tyler and #TheLegalTeam Jenny and Jelani--will be headed to Dallas for the final leg of the race, and there doesn't seem to be any true way of telling just who may win, as all four have won at least one other leg prior to this one. However, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, host Phil Keoghan may have dropped hints about who he thinks has a chance to win it.
"With these teams, you've got the real street smart team with Mike and Rochelle--you remember how Rochelle rocked up to do the mechanical challenge. They're from Middle America, they've got those practical skills," Keoghan said. "And then [Jenny and Jelani] who are all about details and perfection; Tyler and Laura who are the most compatible; then this other team--who I think are really the underdogs--Hayley and Blair, who I thought were going to implode about four legs ago. I didn't think they were going to make it out of Thailand! Now, here they are, the best performing team in the last couple of legs. They seem to be listening to each other, they're compatible...who knows what's going to happen?"
Because Keoghan calls Hayley and Blair the underdogs, it could be a hint they may win it, especially after Season 25's underdogs, Scientists Amy and Maya, took home the $1 million over all considerably stronger teams
However, one of the actual members of one of the teams--Mike from Team Truck Stop--tweeted after it was revealed he and Rochelle had been saved and would be a part of the final leg after all--and maybe hinted they would surprise everyone and take home the grand prize.
