PREVIOUSLY ON .. THE AMAZING RACE:

Phil: 11 teams left LA in a race of 40,000 miles across 5 continents. Along the way, teams experienced highs, lows, bruises (K/C crash motorbikes). Eight teams fell by the wayside (elim clips in order). Separated couple Ken/Tina hoped to rebuild a marraige; over the course of the race, they rediscovered each other and are in the F3. Siblings Nick/Starr were models of consistency in the Race, but when the pressure got to Starr, Nick's calming influence got them into the F3. Frat bros Andrew/Dan overcame huge odds getting into the F3, relying on tenacity (tortoise/hare confessional) and luck. One of these teams will win the $1,000,000 and The Amazing Race.


Credits roll.

Phil: Moscow, Russia, epicenter of Soviet Powers. This was the 10th pitstop in a Race around the world.
Nick/Starr, 10:56 pm, CLUE: Fly to your final destination city, Portland, Oregon.
Phil: Once here, must make their way to the Tilkum Adventure camp for the next clue.

Nick/Starr get 7:05 am flight to Lufthansa.

D/Andrew, CLUE, 2:28 am.
They arrive at the airport in time to get a 7 am flight through Frankfurt.

Ken/Tina, 3:30 am, leave for the airport.
Conf: Tina says they've believed they'll win the whole game through!

Nick/Starr get on the internet and look at Tilikum's website.
Ken/Tina make the same flight!

EQUALIZED!

The plane from Moscow is half-empty.
They'll swap planes in Frankfurt.
All 3 teams arrive in Portland, Oregon!
RUN! RUN! RUN! TAXI! AS FAST AS POSSIBLE! GO! GOTTA BEAT 'EM! FAST!

Nick/Starr manage out of the airport in 1st, Ken/Tina 2nd, but all 3 teams are closely bunched in taxis.

Andrew/Dan seem to find a cabbie who doesn't speak much English.   

DETOUR, Ken/Tina: High and Dry, or Low and Wet?
High & Dry, climb 30 feet up a tree, traverse a log, leap through the ear to nab a clue. (Tethered, of course.)
Low & Wet, floating log bridge 850 feet across the water to a clue onshore.

How much of a time delay is there?  I started at 8 because I'm in Canada.   I think I'll just wait till the end to post then cause I'll probably blurt something out.

Anyway, Go Nick and Starr!  :jumpy:

After Ken/Tina choose high and dry, Tina reveals she's scared of heights.   
Lost in cab, Andrew/Dan use the cabbie's cell phone to call the adventure camp, 'cause dildnuts the driver can't find it.   

Ken has his clue. He floats down his tethered line, so that Tina can go now.
Also on high/dry, Nick crosses the log and jumps for the clue, and Starr is up now.
Tina loses her hat .. er .. helmet. She puts it back on. She tells Kenny to shaddap the "encouragement."
Finally the lost frats drive up to the camp.
Tina and Ken bicker some more as she adjusts her helmet again. She snarks at Ken and takes it off altogether.

The AEPi's get their DETOUR clue.
Ken is getting disgusted as Tina falters.

Nick/Starr, CLUE: Travel by taxi to Bridge of the Gods
Phil: Zipline 2,000 feet to the island below for the next clue.

Ken: TINA! PLEASE!
Tina: YOU'RE FREAKING ME OUT! I'M SCARED OF HEIGHTS!

Nick/Starr run to the next challenge, while Tina debates whether she'll jump. Finally she does, and grabs the clue on the first jump.
Tina to Ken: You know, you can't be yelling at me all the time!

A whole challenge behind the field, Andrew/Dan choose high/dry.
The other 2 teams believe it to be a 2-team race.

Nick/Starr arrive at the Bridge of the Gods.
Their cabbie may actually have overshot the entrance!
Ken/Tina arrive also. Seems they get to the challenge first.
They get attached to the zipline.
Tina repeats that she has a fear of heights.
Kenny wants to toss her off a cliff if it'll win him a million dollars.
Nick/Starr finally arrive.
AEPi's finish the high/dry DETOUR.
Tina zips down first and L O V E S it.
So much for her acrophobia.
Ken makes all goo-goo about being "back in the northwest" as he ziplines down.
Nick/Starr are hot on their heels.

Ken/Tina, ROUTE INFO:
Phil: Power of memory, teams must answer 1 question from each leg of the Race.
Working in numerical order, they have to remove game pieces, then enter a field with 150 Amazing Race clue boxes. Match 10 clues to pics (or something like that) and your team can move on.

Ken/Tina botch the 1st attempt at matching pic from Leg 1.
Starr tells Nick when he ziplines down, to watch what Tina's doing so they can catch up.
Tina likens the game to "Concentration." Hugh Downs sues for slander. Vidclips matching the pics play in the background to entertain us viewers.
At least Ken/Tina are discussing which leg is which so that they can have an idea before running across the field with a pic.
Andrew/Dan's cab approaches the Bridge of the Gods.
After a couple of mistakes, Starr is getting impatient. Nick reminds her, "There's SO much room to make up time here!"
Ken/Tina seem to have 3 now.
Nick/Starr get their 1st.

Nick/Starr are moving faster than Ken/Tina, and seem to be closing the gap.
Still about half the challenge remains.
Ken/Tina snarking at each other again.
Nick: Making up some ground!
Andrew/Dan's cabbie sucks so bad, that they just take his cellphone again and call for directions to the Bridge. 
Nick/Starr seem to have the lead with about 4 to go. Tina's disgusted already.
Nick/Starr apparently working on the last couple of legs looking for a matching pic. They're almost dead even!
Andrew/Dan on the Bridge get ready to zipline down.
Tina thinks she has the penultimate one! She does!
Nick/Starr still think they can pull it off!
Tina: I don't care what they're doing! I'm not paying any attention to them!
(Tina's pants catch on fire!)
Tina to Ken: They're not all going to be in the easiest to get to spots!
Nick/Starr DONE! They break out running toward the parking lot!
Tina: Are they done!?
Ken: Yeah!
Tina: SHOOT!

Nick/Starr, CLUE: Travel by taxi downtown to the Portland Bulding.
Phil: They need to find the green dinosaur, across the street in the Standard Plaza, for their next clue.

Ken/Tina finish, get CLUE, head for downtown.
Tina to cabbie: We need to go to the green dinosaur! If you need to call, can you do that?
(Cabbie looks like he doesn't hear them ... lalalalala ...)

AEPi's finish the zipline and begin the CONCENTRATION game! Too bad; they will probably miss a fun finish.

Ken/Tina's cab passes Nick/Starr's, and Starr is not amused.
She makes their cabbie go faster.
He passes Ken/Tina back!
Nick: There we go.
Not so fast .. they're on your bumper, dude.
N/S go one way; K/T don't follow.
Tina to cabbie: Sir, do you know where you're going?  
Looks like N/S's cabbie was right!
THERE IS THE DINOSAUR!
Ken/Tina are stuck in traffic on another block.

Nick/Starr CLUE: Make your way on foot to Alder Street Cart Pods and find your last country.
(Umm ... that would be RUSSIA would it not?)
Nick knows they're looking for RUSSIAN pod!

Ken/Tina find the dinosaur, but after a delay due to traffic and being taken to another building nearby.
They head for the Alder Street Cart Pods on foot.
Nick/Starr a block or two away getting directions.
Ken/Tina are about 5 blocks away.
Woman tells Tina: Between 9th and 10th!
Nick finds Thai food.
Nick finds Russian food!
Nick/Starr, CLUE: Find where the magic is in the hole.
Phil: They need to discover that their clue is sending them to Voodoo Donuts!
Nick/Starr ask lots of folks before a guy tells them it's something to do with a magic woman sitting at a table on the street or summat.
Ken yells out all the countries one at a time.
Tina: Ken, just FIND IT.
 
Magic sitting lady tells Nick/Starr to find the donut shop.
Tina: You're trying to slow me down! Let me go!
Both teams running, huffing and puffing through the downtown Portland streets.
Anti, are you in this scene anywhere? I'd bet you are!  

Ken/Tina, read CLUE: Find the marked finish line!
Tina can't hail a cab.
Tina: This is ridiculous! Can't get a cab? THIS IS THE GAME!!

Some viewers have winners already; as luck would have it, we got the NE-SEA game instead.  
Both teams have their finish line clues.
Nick/Starr and Ken/Tina fret over the inability to hail a cab.
Ken tells a cabbie he'll pay $50 for the occupant to get out and surrender the cab. He's turned down!  
Another cab approaches Ken/Tina.
Nick/Starr get one first.
Nick offers $70 if the cabbie gets them there first.
Ken prays in the cab, putting it "in your hands."
Ken: If I win, this'll be the last time I run in my entire life!
Two Cabs Approach Destiny and The Million Dollars.

Oooooh, the bathmat!
Oooooh, the teams!
Oooooh, Phil!

RUNNING TOWARD THE MAT, NICK AND STARR!

Phil: 23 days, 5 continents, 40,000 miles, Nick/Starr, you are the winners of The Amazing Race and $1,000,000!
Starr: Every team here is competitive! You guys all made it one hell of a Race.
(Teams look daggers at Starr.)
Nick conf: I loved the experience with my sister and watching her succeed!

Phil: Ken/Tina, you're officially team #2, congratulations! You ran a helluva race. You came on this Race to win and reconnect.
Ken: Some ups and downs, but she's the best.
Tina: Awwwww ...
Ken takes out their wedding rings.
Ken: You want to start this thing over again? We'll get it right this time!
They cry, hug, and kiss, as Anita/Arthur look on lovingly.
Tina conf: I try to hold on to the fact that Kenny's a wonderful person, and has wonderful qualities.
Ken conf: If we're gonna be married, we want it to be great. We're gonna make it Amazing.

Finally, the AEPi's cross the line.
Phil: Andrew/Dan, you are officially team #3. Did you thiink you'd be F3?
Dan: It's incredible, we ended the way we started, overcoming our mistakes.
Everybody laughs and claps.
Andrew conf: We thought we had no chance in hell. Before we knew it, we finished the course.
Dan conf: Frats can be proud of us.

Starr conf: Nick and I have a bond, work well together. So we were always together, always confident. We have a better relationship than we went into it with.

Backdrop, Portland.
Fade to black.
End credits, Season 13.

Well congrats to Nick & Starr, not much of a surprise (Yeah we are talking to you editors at CBS).  Seriously it's like Tyler & James all over again (though I loved that season).  

And I am glad to see that they kept all the tasks to the area around the final destination city.  One change in the last two years that I do love.

And now to wait for the west coast (or other sources) so that I can watch it.

Ah yes, another pre-favorite win to put in the books. I believe that would be 8/13 now for me. This night just keeps getting better!

Peach of Ken's account, Ken of Ken's account, or Chateau, I am sure you are going to find out what the differential in finish time was for Nick/Starr vs. Ken/Tina and vs. Andrwe/Dan.

It is crystal clear that this was a 7 hour pitstop, a record low for any Amazing Race that I can think of. How do I know this? Because Chateau and I agreed on a time around 4pm for Nick/Starr and I heard it was about 3.5 hours later that Andrew/Dan checked into the leg 10 pitstop. So I am now chaging my estimate of Nick/Starr checkin time to 356pm. What you add the 7 hours, you get 10:56pm for the release time. Working backward, 228am release time for Andrew/Dan equates to 728pm checkin time and the surprising additional hour for Ken/Tina has 330am release equate to 830pm checkin time.

No TAR 14 preview, should have known. :res: but I did spot Phil in a commercial for Password  :kisses .

I knew I was not crazy!!!
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

O sages at TARCON XIII, could you please add one late question to the list for the Final 3:

Did the 4 clue received on release from the final Moscow pitstop specify going to Domosdedovo airport? If not, then how did you know to go there and not Sheremetyevo airport?

Dandrew was completely done in by the cab driver.  I don't know HOW a cabbie would end up going to Newberg via Hwy 219/Scholls - unless the doofus took Hwy 26 to Hillsboro and then south.  DEFINITELY the long way around!  I often took 219 from Tualatin/Sherwood to Hillsboro to avoid Hwy 26, and once we got routed off of 219 due to flooding on the way home from Thanksgiving dinner at mom's, and ended up a very-back-way to Newberg on Bell Rd, just as Dandrew did.)

I didn't know Tilikum Camp, but we were just wine tasting last weekend a mile or so from there at a new winery.  In the cabbie's defense (for only going 40 when Dandrew shouted to go faster), the speed limit through Newberg is only about 35 mph, and the highway between Lafayette and Newberg is a notorious speed trap.  Both my husband and myself have been stopped along there for speeding (and luckily we both got only warnings).

I really didn't think anybody would have to stress over a cabbie knowing "The Portland Building."  Interesting that they didn't show Portlandia, probably due to the copyright the artist has on showing the statue.

I am very impressed with how helpful and nice Portlanders came across.  For both couples to instantly find somebody who knew "the magic is in the hole" meant Voodoo Donuts is great.  My husband and I had Voodoo Donuts as a checkpoint on our Urban Challenge race 3-4 years ago.

Luckily, Voodoo Donuts is very close to a hotel with a taxi stand, which really helped!

I'm really happy the sibs won, but I wish the best to Ken and Tina as well.

LAst year had several irregular pit Stops, the shortest one for that season I believe was episode #6.  I believe its Pit Stop was between 4 to 6 hours.

Ok, back in RI from TARCon. Peach can fill in some blanks. But Tina told us of one scene in the finale that wasn't shown.

We do not have an official time diff from Nick & Starr or Ken & Tina as of yet.

We do know of the Russian package teams were supposed to give the Russian food vendor that they were supposed to bring from Moscow, but again, was not shown.

There's also other stuff we can tell you, but we save for later. I need sleep.

this is the first whole season i've watched on TAR, and i love it. Nick and Starr played the game really well, and i think they deserve being the team with the most wins in the history of TAR.

can anyone comment on this http://www.datelinehollywood.com/dateline_hollywood/2008/12/nick-and-starr-announce-engagement-after-winning-the-amazing-race.html
personally, i think its a bit dodgy, especially since pics from the TARCon show Nick's gf.
