Luke set out on this race to show America that deaf people can do anything just as well as hearing people can. And while I respect and applaud him for that, he failed. Margie did all the hard work while, in a way, he sat on the sidelines and watched. For a team to be considered deserving of winning the money, they have to be just that: a team. Which is why tonight, if it isn't Cara & Jamie that cross the finish line first, I'll settle with Tammy & Victor only.

It's been an interesting season. The casting in this was eally good. They managed to find people who arn't your run-of-the-mill couples. As this chapter comes to a close, I'm already looking forward to the next one!

While its true that Luke didn't do any driving and literally most of the communication with strangers, locals, and the service industry was from Margie.  He certainly did his share of the tasks. and he certainly wasn't dead weight being drug around (more the point he s the one shown consistently dragging his mother around.

We have certainly scene teams were racers did less without a viable reason why they couldn't do it.

I really wanted Luke/Margie. Oh well, but what Luke said to Margie at the end was very sweet, brought a tear to my eye. :'(

Maybe by posting this theyre trying to lead people away from thinking M/L are going to win but they do actually win.  Now its starting to confuse me.

I don't think Luke's expression in the group photo is very indicative of a million dollar winner.  I think it's between C/J and T/V.  Only a few more hours 'til we know!
Every picture tells a story don't it?


Wow this place is dead   :juggle :pirate7

Every picture tells a story? And both pictures you posted show the teams in the same order.

1. Tammy and Victor
2. Jamie and Cara
3. Margie and Luke

*sigh* would've loved for M/L to pull this one off, it just sucks that they were so far ahead and obviously screw up really badly!

I apologize for posting a bad kmz; the corrected one is below. It serves me right for trusting geotags too much (almost as bad as wikipedia). The county assessor's office puts the property owned by Dettloff (and others) a few hundred yards north of the geotagged spot.

Congratulations to Tammy & Victor!  I wanted either them or Cara & Jaime to win.  I guess I wanted Cara & Jaime just a little more because we already had a sibling team win last season, but this is an Asian American sibling team, and I always had a soft spot for Asian Americans, so I'm just as glad this team won.

It all came down to two things:  Cara & Jaime's taxi needing gas (and being lost) and Luke missing the final two surfboards at the end.  That's what got Tammy & Victor the win.

Exciting finale, marred only a bit by the expected winners.

I don't think I could've done that Roadblock.  The fake clues being thrown in would've thrown me off, big-time.

Tammy & Victor: Well done, you two.  Congrats on becoming the first Asian team to win the race.  But you really lucked out with a cerebral task at the end.  Still, Victor had a great strategy for completing it, so good job to him.  But I'm really only happy with them winning for Tammy.  What a sweetheart.  True class act the whole season through (Romania notwithstanding).

Jaime & Cara: Well, Jaime was forced to eat some humble pie, but at least she was fully humbled by finally APOLOGIZING, for once.  I'm really surprised they managed to nearly catch up at that final Roadblock.  Good job on them for tying Dustin & Kandice's record for highest-placing women's team and finishing second.  This is actually the top two I predicted before the season even began, in either order, at that.  So I'm ecstatic that it turned out that way.  Still, the search for the first winning women's team continues for yet another season. . . .

Margie & Luke: Luke, Luke, Luke.  You and Margie had the final victory right at your fingertips.  But instead of staying perfectly calm when you got frustrated at the final Roadblock, you panicked and blew it.  I'm really surprised Margie didn't do the task instead of you.  It might've helped you both win.  Still, good run by both of you, and I'll give you the congratulations that Poo won't give you for getting as far as you did.

Well, it was a great season.  Better than the last one, at least.  I hope next season's good, too!

Shoreline Access 118 (chart link at the bottom of this page) is listed as "keokea beach homesteads," which puts it somewhere in the Kihei area, not far from McGregor point.

Yeah, I heard someone say Kihei on the show and I knew my Kaanapali claim was sunk.  So the land form that I was so sure was Molokai was actually just more of Maui   :groan:

Great race, great teams, great finish. What more could we ask for?  I LOVED the end of this race, loved the fact that Luke helped Jamie and Jamie helped Luke.

Kudos to all the work by the RFF Amazing Race detectives and insightful posts by everyone.

Thanks Slowhatch.  Well, then I guess they planted a grid of young palm trees after the satellite image was taken.  'cause it sure is a match with everything else.  I was hunting palm trees.   :groan:

Congratulations to Tammy and Victor for the win, I have been routing for you all season.  :jumpy: :jumpy: :jumpy: Good to see the team work.  Congratulations to Jamie/Cara and Margie/Luke for running such a good race.  All 3 teams deserved to be in the final.  Is this the first time that all 3 final teams have been so closely bunched in the final leg??  Watching all 3 teams carrying the pigs was difficult as there is no way I could have carried it.  My arms ached as I watched.  What an enjoyable season it has been.  Now what will I watch on sunday nights????

Reruns of The Simpsons?

BTW, I think I figured it out:

There's this pattern in all F3's excluding FE. Alpha males beat Fighting Couples/Ex-couples who beat Siblings who beat Loving Couples (Married or Dating) who beat Feisty F/F who beat Parent/Child who beat Friends/Other Relationship. The only exception would be David & Jeff, due to their flight connection.

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
