Who Will Win 'The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business'? Host Phil Keoghan Weighs In

The stakes are even higher than normal for the final four teams on this season of 'The Amazing Race.' Considering each pair has competed on the Race once before -- and failed -- they've all had a lot to prove. "Who's more motivated to come back and redeem themselves for stupid mistakes, for really bad luck, for penalties at the wrong time, for getting lost, for taking the most untimely pee break in the history of 'The Amazing Race,'" asked host Phil Keoghan when AOL TV chatted with him earlier this week. "Who's been living with that unfinished business, and who would make for an interesting comeback?" On Sunday night (8PM ET on CBS), a pair of Harlem Globetrotters, two sisters, a father and a daughter and two best friends will cross the finish line of 'The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business' in Miami. AOL TV asked Phil to help handicap the strengths and weaknesses of the remaining teams. After the jump, find out which team Phil says is the one to beat. http://www.tvsquad.com/2011/05/06/the-amazing-race-unfinished-business-finale-phil-keoghan/

Interview: Kent and Vyxsin of 'The Amazing Race' Say The Globetrotters Are 'Big Babies'

Kent and Vyxsin had one of the most dramatic and amusing returns to The Amazing Race we've ever seen. When they weren't bickering (usually about forgetting something), they were making us laugh with their commentary, or fighting with the Globetrotters. I had the opportunity to ask "The Goths" some questions and find out more about the Globetrotters, what happened in Varanasi, and how they feel about their race. You won't want to miss this one.

'The Amazing Race': What's the Matterhorn?

The teams are in Switzerland, and taking helicopters! Zev and Justin are feeling first and fortunate. Kisha and Jen, departing second, are having more fun this time around. And they're going to have extra fun with that whole dollar for the leg of the race. Kent and Vyxsin put on extra glitter for this leg of the race (to match the snow), and are convinced they're getting along better. Kent and Vyxsin have trouble getting a cab, and Gary and Mallory don't. This pisses Kent off to the point of well, more complaining. The Globetrotters catch up and everyone waits for their helicopters, departing five minutes apart. They have a lot of safety gear on, which worries some of the teams, while other team members are worried about the helicopter ride. Has their been a major heights Road Block yet?

Amazing Race's Kent and Vyxsin: The Globetrotters Were "Very Appalling"

A 30-minute penalty for taking a cab to the Pit Stop instead of going by foot doomed Kent Kaliber and Vyxsin Fiala on The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business , but the real drama came at the Roadblock when the Globetrotters accused Vyxsin of stealing Flight Time's gnome mold. "I didn't take it," Vyxsin tells TVGuide.com. "It was pretty clear on the episode the way they showed it when I put mine on the bottom shelf. I talked to the chocolate teachers and everybody said, 'No, of course, you didn't take it.'" Of course, that wasn't enough to stop the Globetrotters from taunting the Goths — behavior Kent dubs "pretty disgusting." See what else they have to say about the Globetrotters and which team should not be underestimated. http://www.tvguide.com/News/Amazing-Race-Kent-Vyxsin-1032603.aspx?rss=breakingnews

Top Moments: Office's Fond Farewell, Vampire Diaries Shockers and a Cheesy Race

13. Kiss and Don't Tell Award:  After  American Idol  woman scorned Pia Toscano sings her anthem "I'll Stand By You" on  Dancing with the Stars  (her all-but-confirmed beau Mark Ballas' show), Tom Bergeron gets right to the point: "Is he a good kisser?" Coy as ever, Toscano laughs it off and replies, "He's a wonderful person." We'll take that as a yes. But seriously, enough with the cageyness. It's really wearing on your 15 minutes. 12. Most Cringeworthy:  At first, Paul Reiserseems like a good sport for showing up for his The Tonight Show with Jay Leno  appearance even though his NBC sitcom was canceled last week. But naturally, the comedian wasn't going to let the awkward sitdown pass without lobbing a few grenades. "NBC, to my knowledge, they don't traditionally make bad decisions," he tells Leno. "I don't know what your experience is..." And then: "When you're the last-place network, you don't want to jeopardize that. You found your niche; stay there."

The Amazing Race: Cheaters Never Prosper...Or Do They?

Whenever I watch an episode of The Amazing Race, my emotions tend to stay within a certain level. I may be impressed by the various countries they go to, anxious to see which team will win a footrace to the pit stop, or touched that a team learned so much about their connection in such a short amount of time, but I tend to walk out of every episode of The Amazing Race feeling pretty okay. Not this time.

Amazing Race's Jet and Cord: It Would've Been "Really Cool" If Someone Told Us the Answer

They survived back-to-back close-call legs, but cowboys/brothers Jet and Cord McCoy couldn't make another comeback on The Amazing Race: Unfinished Business Sunday. After Jet was the only Racer to redo the Roadblock of measuring the length of Liechtenstein — and was left out of the answer sharing circle — the fan favorites had their fates sealed when they were U-Turned by the Globetrotters in Zermatt, Switzerland. Still, the self-proclaimed "lone rangers" don't think their independent style of racing hurt them in a leg where so many teams worked together. "If we had an alliance with the Globetrotters, I think in the same situation, they would've done exactly what they did," Jet tells TVGuide.com. "An alliance might give you that warm, fuzzy feeling, but I don't know if it's going to save you." See what else the Season 16 alums have to say about their exit, if they would've used the U-Turn and why Gary rocks. http://www.tvguide.com/News/Amazing-Race-Jet-Cord-1032262.aspx?rss=breakingnews

TV Ratings: 'Beyond the Blackboard' CBS movie helps secure win on Easter

Fast national ratings for Sunday, April 24, 2011.Easter Sunday signaled a win for CBS, with ratings up slightly across the board from last Sunday. "Beyond the Blackboard," CBS's TV movie starring Emily Van Camp, aired opposite her old stomping ground, "Brothers & Sisters" on CBS. FOX made it a very Homer Easter with two episodes of "The Simpsons" and a re-air of the movie, but they didn't make much of a ratings splash. NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" was up slightly from last week, but their latest endeavor "America's Next Great Restaurant" hit its series low.CBS had the highest average viewers (9.1 million and a 5.6/10 share). ABC came in second (7.7 million, 4.6/8), NBC in third (6.0 million, 3.6/6) and FOX in fourth (3.1 million, 1.7/3). ABC won the 18-49 demo with a 2.2 rating, followed by NBC (2.0) and CBS (1.7). FOX had a 1.2. Sunday hour by hour: 7 p.m. CBS: "60 Minutes" (10.3... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/04/tv-ratings-beyond-the-blackboard-cbs-movie-helps-secure-win-on-easter.html
