    After I hailed a cab at Honolulu airport back on Dec. 20, I sat in the rear seat and shot the breeze with the cabbie about watching contestants over the years on CBS' "The Amazing Race" deal with taxis around the world.

    Out of the blue, he said, "oh. Three teams came through here last week and I had one of them in that seat you're in. I took them to climb those tall towers over there, so I guess you'll be seeing me on TV."

    Wasn't sure I believed him.

    Some 4 1/2 mos. later, on May 6, I turn on the "Race" Season 20 Finale. It was in Honolulu, and there was my cabbie, chauffering Dave and Rachel over to the towers! Fun :)

    Just finished watching the finale and it's funny to see you had the same cabbie! For what it's worth, I absolutely abhor Rachel. :D

    Yes, but which Rachel? The blonde, the Army wife who won tonight and who had sat in my cab seat, or the 'Big Brother' hair-extension cry baby Rachel? The couple who won tonight certainly had their fights, but I didn't dislike them. The OTHER Rachel, however - don't get me started!

    I think you've pretty much answered your own question. :D
