Sisters Kisha & Jen settle their unfinished business on the Amazing Race

From the beaches of Rio to a trailer park in the Florida Keys, sisters Kisha & Jen overcame past demons and tough competition to settle their unfinished business and win The Amazing Race.

Order of Finish:
1.    Kisha & Jen
2.    Flight Time & Big Easy
3.    Gary & Mallory

THE WINNERS
With eight eliminated teams cheering them on, sisters Kisha & Jen ran to the Finish Line where Phil declared them the winners of the race and the one million dollar prize. The emotional sisters told Phil they planned to help their mom start her own business. Jen added, “There aren’t any words to describe our mom. She is absolutely amazing so it’s just going to be a great thing to give her something that she’s given to us.”

After finish the race in second place, the Globetrotters congratulated Kisha & Jen calling them “the most consistent team throughout the race. They never struggled. We got beat out by a couple of girls, but that’s okay.” Big Easy later said, “It was fun from start to finish. It was hard. We laughed. We cried. I’m happy we did it.”

Ending the race in third place, Mallory said of the experience with her father, “We came back and we did our unfinished business. We wanted to make it around the world so badly and we got that. We know money’s not everything and the experience is priceless for sure.”

Co-winner Kisha closed by remarking, “I’m glad to have run this race with Jen for a second time. Winning this race shows that she’s not my little sister. She’s a competitor. To run this race with her was a great experience.”

Who got eliminated on American Idol Season 10?

Perhaps more than the performances, the most searched about keywords during American Idol season are: “who got eliminated from idol?” “who is going home on american idol?” or “who went home on idol?”

Clearly, while millions tune to the performances, the rest of America and the world just wants to know who got sent home and who is left to compete!

Going into the finals, the cuts for the semi-final round is brutal. The top 24 performs for America’s votes and from there will only get the Top 5 guys and the Top 5 girls.

Fourteen contestants will lose their chance to become this year’s American Idol. However, the producers are putting a twist to this drama. The judges can and will pick 2 or 3 more people to go into the final round of the competition making the magic 12 or 13.

From there, one will go home each week. The top 10 lucky ones will go on tour nationwide in the Summer.

Come back here on Thursday and every Thursday thereafter to find out the results!!

Not Ryan di Lello. He is the first to go and is in 6th place. We are watching the show live and we’ll report the results as soon as we get them.

* 6th Place: Ryan DiLello
* 5th Place: Ashleigh DiLello
* 4th Place: Ellenore Scott
* 3rd Place: Kathryn McCormick
# 2nd Place: Jakob Karr
# 1st Place: Russell Ferguson

A more subdued and tamed Adam Lambert in a grey suit performed “Whataya Want From Me?” another cut from his album, For Your Entertainment.

Russell hurt his leg somehow and is crying in pain…

And now for the results!!

Wow! We never saw it coming! 20 year old Russell from Boston, Ma was the dark horse (no pun intended!) in the competition. We have our eyes set out for Jakob Karr. He should have been the winner but America is voting not just us. Still, Russell is an inspiration to any hiphop dancers. Congratulations! See you next season everyone. That season was fast, huh?!

Meghan Rickey and Cheyne Whitney, $1 Million Grand Prize Winners of the Amazing Race 15

Well, a satisfying end, no? This hasn’t been the most exciting season of The Amazing Race—everything felt too strangely easy—but at least we got the ending we wanted. Well, I think all of us wanted that ending, right? Oh, and, here’s the spoiler alert.

Yay, Meghan and Cheyne. Seriously, yay for them. Sure they may be two athletic, good-looking blonde people and therefore don’t earn quite as much underdog likability as other teams, but they were clever and quick all throughout the race, and deserved the win entirely. No other team came close in aptitude and ability, and it would have been a downright shame—a rotten bit of late-game luck—for another team to snatch their well-earned crown. Thankfully that didn’t happen. Though it looked close there for a second, didn’t it??

meghan_cheyneIt was so pleasing that in the end the win came down to a competition of the mind, not the body. Meghan & Cheyne came to the last challenge in third place, and it looked as though they might have lost the game simply for dumbly not knowing that Monaco = Monte Carlo. But luckily the final challenge involved counting and numbers and math, things that Brian & Ericka and Sam & Dan aren’t so great at. The way the show was edited made it seem as though the brothers were nipping on the heels of the Bobbsey Blonde Twins, but I think they were actually a lot further behind. Meg and Chey-Chey counted their chips correctly the first time, while the brothers—those dumb, shrieking, galoompfy brothers—had to do a recount. That must have taken a good 20 minutes, meaning that Meghan & Cheyne had a significant lead. The minute the chip-counter said “That is incorrect” to the boys, the game was done. Those braying idiots lost how they should have lost—a towering testament to their dim and bumbling mental acuity. Oh, and lest we forget the “Who are you??” Wayne Newton moment. Oh man. That was embarrassing. They are embarrassing.

Brian & Ericka? Aw, heck. They sure do seem nice. Well, he does. She seems nice only sometimes. I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and assume that her sometimes shrieky behavior was caused by the stress of being on a reality television show about a million-dollar global foot race, but still… she did wear on the nerves some. Making it to the final three was their true accomplishment (you could see it written all over the Globetrotters’ faces at the final haul). A B&E win would have been a strange divine act, one fun in its surprise, but ultimately frustrating. No, they weren’t our winners. They were firmly our third-placers.

I dunno. I guess there’s really not much more to say. Again, not the thrillingest of seasons (too much time in Europe, I think), but a solid one with clear and worthy victors. A little bit of square-jawed sense in a chaotic and confusing world. Can’t wait to see the victorious pair on an All-Stars season. I think they’ll do just fine.

Profile Bio:

Meghan Rickey (23); Cheyne Whitney (23)
Hometown: San Diego
Occupation: Account Executive/Brand Manager
Relationship: Dating

Meghan and Cheyne met while playing a competitive game of tetherball in elementary school. After 10 years of friendship, Cheyne realized he could not let the most athletic girl he knew get away. Other than a six-month period where Meghan studied abroad in Italy, this couple has been essentially inseparable for nearly five years.

Meghan and Cheyne both work in fields where they deal extensively with different publics. She is an account executive at a public affairs firm and he works for a social change marketing company where he develops after-school programs and deals with a diverse group of teens, school administrators and corporate executives. When not in the office, Meghan can be found coaching competitive girls’ soccer — a sport that she and Cheyne have shared a passion for since they were kids. The couple feels strongly that their occupations and experiences with team sports have taught them effective communication skills and the virtue of patience, which they believe will benefit them in the Race.

Even though they are head-over-heels for each other, they still have their pet peeves just like any other couple. Meghan does not like that he tries to diffuse tense situations with laughter rather than by talking things through. The biggest thing about Meghan that frustrates Cheyne is her stubbornness. He claims that once she has her mind set on something she is difficult to reason with and it can be impossible to change her mind.

Ready to tackle the Race head-on, Meghan and Cheyne are very eager to use the power of positive thinking and their athleticism to compete as a team and hope that this experience further validates their friendship and love.

7/16 So You Think You Can Dance 5 Top 10 Results, Ade nearly calls it Anite

Well, not much surprise for us tonight. The two we thought would be eliminated were, and on the women’s side, our second pick for elimination was in the bottom two. Ade was the only dancer that did not belong, and we thought it like last year when Twitch was threatened, but really, had no business even gracing the bottom anything.

By the way, we would like to mention we met Twitch at one of the performances last year in Boston. Twitch was more gracious and more willing to please his fans than any dancer we have seen. He signed and took pictures and tried to please everyone in a very chilly environment in which he could have easily waved and departed. Twitch was not our favorite last year in the dance competition, but he is our favorite personality from SYTYCD to date. He is our favorite SYTYCD performer since its inception because he has grace and presence with his audience as well as on the stage.

randi_kupono_eliminatedAll that said, we were sad that we were right about Randi. Randi got a “luck of the draw” elimination. The Paso Doble eliminated her, and the costume directors eliminated her, and Kubono’s weak performance eliminated her. There was way too much weight on the poor girl. Tonight, she showed her incredibly cute personality, and you could see it was an error to have sent her home this week. But that draw of the cards was drawing a 2 on a high card draw. No matter how well you drew the card, it was still a 2. But she bowed out holding that two with total grace and personality, something we will remember her for.

On the men’s side, we were surprised that Ade made it to the bottom 2. We think perhaps it is his kind of goofy look that, at times, steals from his ability to be the leading man. Joshua had no such problem with any goofy smile. Oddly, Twitch did, but it endeared us to him and he better controlled it. Ade’s smile does not endear, it just makes you think he is a goofy kid. That is sad to say because we love his talent and think it nearly unsurpassed this year, but it may be his undoing. But then, Twitch learned and recovered, and so may Ade.

But the fact is… Kupono called it a night, and the audience called for Ade. Kupono was done tonight and had to be. Again, this was a partially because of a draw of the cards. That Paso Doble was very difficult. But the champions like Joshua pull those dances out of the fire and make them memorable. The lesser dancers cannot present the strength and personality necessary, and Kupono went down in flames taking Randi with him. Kupono dances much like his mentor, Mark Kanemura, but he has a feminine look and no evil or strong persona that could have pulled out that dance like Mark did in this one… He lost because he deserved to lose, combined with the luck of the draw because the dance he was forced to dance did not match his personality.

So there you have it. Kupono and Randi are gone. Randi should not be, and Kupono deserved to be. Melissa is skating on thin Nutcracker ice. We think she is in definite danger to be next. On the men’s side it is totally up in the air.
