The ‘Big Brother’ couple revealed an important detail about the ending
“Another quick thing about navigation… I think what really helped us was the compass I had with a ruler,” Claire revealed. “I had it tied around my neck like a little necklace that I made myself out of mask threads. So it was a little thing that I could always have with me and take out easily and not have to go through all my stuff.”
Derek added: “Yeah, it’s amazing because you can keep the compass with you. So where is the compass now?
“I don’t want to talk about it,” Claire replied. Laughing, Derek explained, “Claire made this contraption to keep the compass on her and she lost it.”
The couple then argued about where they lost the compass, but she clarified: “I think when I was changing, I had it around my neck and I left it where we were changing. We had to change back, and I accidentally left my coat behind, and with it, my compass. But more in the next stage”.
“Yeah, so a little omen: we’re going to the next stage without having a compass,” Derek quipped.
Fans of ‘The Amazing Race 34’ believe the compass will play a big part in Derek and Claire’s performance in the finale.
Derek and Claire won’t have a compass with them for the final leg of The amazing race 34. And some fans believe that this ultimately makes them lose the race.
“I swear, if the lost compass is the reason they lose, I will be so sad,” one person commented on the couple’s YouTube video.
A fan added: “I was thinking the same thing. ‘Oh no! They lost the compass! I’m nervous now.
Others expressed the same concerns for Derek and Claire in the amazing race‘s Reddit page. One Reddit user wrote: “Uh oh. They go to the next stage without their compass. I hate omens! stresses me out
However, one fan was a bit more optimistic. They said, “I don’t think you need the compass on the next leg; it’s in Nashville, and since they’re back in the US, the addresses and locations will be much easier to understand.”
