do Amazing Race 7 cast photos reveal the order of elimination and the final three?
The Amazing Race 7 may have another spoiler on its hands. This one sounds more like the early Survivor-style spoilers, and less like the more recent style of insiders using info for financial gain. According to The AP’s pop culture, um, “blog” (try not to laugh that a news syndicate calls a column a blog), message board posters at Reality TV World have noticed a pattern with the cast photos on CBS’ official Amazing Race web site. For the potentially spoiling details, highlight the following:

They’ve noticed that the “Teams” page on CBS’s official “Amazing Race” Web site features the 11 teams’ mugs PhotoShopped onto three different backgrounds: a seaside, mountain range and an oceanic sunset. Thus far, all five of the teams with the seaside background have been eliminated, leaving three remaining teams in front of the mountain range and the other remaining three on top of the sunset. … After combining this theory with a previous potential spoiler that revealed an unusual online betting pattern placed on married couple Uchenna and Joyce Agu, many of the Reality TV World gurus have declared that the three teams with the sunset background–the Agus, former “Survivor: All-Stars” castaways Rob Maraino and Amber Brkich and boyfriends Lynn Warren and Alex Ali–are the final three teams.
