Congrats Kiwi :wtg: :party:

So hey I just finished, another pretty cool finale! I'd forgotten about the animal/mammal tee pee but it didn't seem to hard. I thought it was funny that Flo thought for sure that Phil was messing with them, that Ken and Gerard had really won and were hiding  :lol:

I remember several particularly interesting things about AR3:

1. Flo helping Ken/Gerard eliminate Derek/Drew
2. Dieselgate in Spain with 4 teams putting unleaded in gas tanks that only want diesel
3. That Zach/Flo got NELs to save them in both Switzerland and in Vietnam. That's exceptionally lucky.

BJ & Tyler (S9) were saved twice by a NEL too if I remember correctly

It was only because Flo didn't want Ken and Gerard on the same boat with them that she told them where they had to go before getting on the boat.

puddin,
My understanding of that event is based on information that Flo provided to Troy Adam-Castro for his book "My Ox is Broken." He indicates that her motivations was to stay ahead of them (totally irrelevant since Flo/Zach were one large step ahead of them and could not be caught) and to get them off her boat (why she cared who was on her boat as long as they didn't have a cyclo with them is difficult to understand). In any event, she did not do it to help them, but that was the actual effect.

I just finished season 4 and I'm moving backwards to season 3 now! But I'm not watching all in one week like puddin because I am too busy for that. :res:

TAR3 is all Flo & Zack! If it weren't for them (Flo) the season would have been totally boring. Terri & Ian were the only other interesting team and Flo hated Terri.  :lol: I found the ending very exciting. F&Z didn't think they won at first.
All the other teams were not interesting at all.

I'll disagree with you, Mr. Minuteman. Ken & Gerard were a great team and I wish they had finished first instead of Flo & Zach who to me were the most undeserving team to win. Hated them. Hated Flo more. She's repented and apologized for her horrid behavior, but the Flo rule of teams needing to split roadblocks is due mostly to her. I've never seen someone do so little for her team.

If that were me on the train in Vietnam, I would have sold Flo in exchange for cigarettes. :snicker: :snicker: :snicker: :snicker:

I loved Kenny and Gerard and Teri and Ian, Flo was o.k and Zach was good. Derek and Drew were great competitors and JVJ were so good to one another. I didnt take notice to the others! haha

Jay,

I loved Jon Vito & Jill. My preferred final 3 of this season would have been Ken & Gerard, Jon Vito & Jill and Aaron & Arienne. The rest I could do without.

One clarification: I believe the six roadblock rule was called the Bowling Mom's rule. I t started after the inequality of the roadblocks in season 5, IIRC. Linda and Karen could have gone further if some of the other women had had to do their share of roadblocks as well.

Last I heard, the Bowling Moms were on Season 5. If you want to talk about them, why didn't you create a thread for Season 5?

p.s. Somebody actually started one.

TARAsiaFan, you can remake the ending however you want to, but the actual ending had Ian/Teri in second place, with Ken/Gerard finishing last in the Finale. It would be a stretch for Ken/Gerard to win. I think Zach earned it with his extra effort throughout AR3, even though Flo's behavior is quite reprehensible.

3. That Zach/Flo got NELs to save them in both Switzerland and in Vietnam. That's exceptionally lucky.

I can remember being upset and shocked that the Switzerland leg was non-elimination, thinking there is no way they would have back-to-back NELs.

If I remember correctly, the Vietnam one was one of those "no more eliminations, just about placement" leg, which I never really saw as a true NEL. But Z&F were definitely lucky in the leg before that, who were last at the time, and very lucky that 2 other teams missed the clue box many times.
