Lifeguard Sharon C has made the random match-ups for the blog pool I might even have a chance at my first blog pool win this season!

Are we ready? Yes, we are!
Teams are heading to Seoul, South Korea. All teams are on the same flight, so they'll all start out even. Matt/Redmond took the subway while all the other teams took taxis. They're heading to a disco place to get their next clue from Gangam (sp?) dancers.
Roadblock -- Who stacks up? Sports stacking of cups. The subway had the boys running in last. Uh-oh. Yikes! BROOKE finishes first and remained positive through it!
Teams next have to make kimchi, the national food of Korea. They have to make six batches, then bury them to start fermenting the dish.
After all the other teams left the Roadblock, Matt/Redmond arrived -- subway and a bad cab ride.
Joey and Tara finish the kimchi first and are in the lead. Oh, geez, Scott and Brooke passed them in the cab.
Another Roadblock - Who's going to take control? Win a round of a martial arts video game against pros. They are not having a good time with it.
Matt/Redmond are making the kimchi.
If I vanish, I'm hearing severe thunder out there. Just a warning!
They are handicapping the pro video players -- first down to one handed, then a blindfold. London's through, Scott's through. They're off to the Pit Stop.
1. Brooke and Scott. Gah.
2. London and Logan
The last two teams are racing in cabs and then on foot ...
3. Tara and Joey
I'm keeping my streak of never winning a blog pool Matt and Redmond are Philiminated.
Yipes! I thought tonight was the season finale! I guess it's not!
