failing the bottle dance Roadblock,
How did she fail? Didn't she complete it?
I think it's easy to forget that Stacy had her moments as well - first leg, she was the last to complete the sky dive because she kept freaking out about it. That put them behind quite a bit, and Kerri's hustle was a big factor with them getting out of there with the empanada task.
Kerri should have never been in charge of navigation, no doubt, but totally useless is a bit of a stretch. And the comparison to Connor and Jonathan is even more off, since Kerri didn't seem to have a problem AT ALL with doing roadblocks, and seemed to pull her weight during detours. Not to mention that Kerri did 3 roadblocks to Stacy's 2. Didn't Kerri do the roadblock before the dash to the pitstop, even though they arrived AFTER Nary and Jamie? And thereby giving them the chance to make it to the pitstop in next to last place? They squandered it, but still, Kerri's hustle gave them that small window. Useless is not an apt descriptor, IMO, particularly when there have been other team members like Mika, Jonathan, Kim (of Chip and), Christie (of Colin and), etc who truly were carried by their partners.
This isn't the first team to be derailed by poor navigation, and they won't be the last. Heck, there is at least one other team in this season (Rachel and Dave), who struggle in that department. Finally, when they stopped to ask for directions to the pit stop, they were BOTH shown speaking with the man who gave them directions, with Stacy in front. So...in that regard, it's certainly not just on Kerri if they didn't make there timely.
