How do we know if that person is reliable? Did he back it up with evidence or an explanation of this result? To me that's still speculation unless it's proven otherwise.

well, there's a 60% possibility of this is right...otherwise the winning team is dan/jordan...(but i don't think so)

That spoiler from Buddy TV is wrong because he first wrote Catie and Brent's name as the team that wins. We know it is between the cowboys and the other brothers so I say he doesn't know who wins and is just guessing like we all seem to be doing.

well, spiderracer never said miss dumbie and his bf will win, and he also predicted that mario and luigi (from mario bros, LOL) would be the team who's out from the final three, so......

Spoilers have none that for quite a little bit of time.

Not saying its wrong, but it very well might just be conjecture.

Congratulations, Eric & Danielle. 

You are no longer the worst performing winning team.

Your average placement of 3.6153 doesn't look that bad compared to Dan & Jordan's record-shattering 4.3333.

Eric & Danielle only won 1 leg compared to Dan & Jordan's 2 wins, but they still performed better by ~0.718.

Wow!

So much for that.  Who said Brent could not do the Roadblock?  Or that after he did it Caite would also have to climb the tower.  And we had a spoiler who claimed that both Caite and Brent climbed Coit Tower.  False.  If there is a rule that says that Roadblocks have to be done equally by the team members, I would like some one to quote chapter and verse (not on spec.)  And if there is a fast and true rule that RBs have to be done equally, then rules can be broken just as the rule about you must be 21 to compete was waived so that Caite could participate.  Special rules for this team? Dam. cost me points!

Second place used to be $100,000, but I don't know if that's still true.

Wow! I didn't expect Dan and Jordan to win, seeing that the spoiler said they had a 30-minute lead over the other teams and from what we have seen the past seasons, the leading team always gets surpassed and end up not winning. This must be one of the rare times if not the first that a team led the entire leg! Wow! And I guess Jordan's love for the race enabled them to finish the final task extra quickly and propelled them to the win. Awesome job for them!

Great job to Jet and Cord and Brent and Caite too. Although I was rooting for the former a little more to win it, Dan and Jordan winning are fine. Yay! :D

This season hasn't been all that wonderful for me, but it ended alright. I'm now looking forward to the next season! Hopefully it's a more interesting cast. Fewer all-male teams please! Hee.

FYI, I just post a link to a great interview Dan and Jordan did today on their thread. They said that Jet and Cord arrived at the pitstop 25 or so minutes after they did so it was not close. It was a great interview.

It's been a lot of fun. I've gotten kind of hooked on hunting for clues while they are running the race. It's amazing what you can find if you dig hard enough and look in the right places. Maybe I'll manage to do that sometime.  :lol:  I'll never be on The Amazing Race, so these are my Roadblocks and Detours.

I come here almost daily and follow what's happening. You never know when something will come up that you have an answer for. Besides, It's fun and entertaining around here. Thanks to everyone who loves TAR and takes the time to participate.

For those that are interested - here is a collage of files provided by CBS with the exif date to put them in order.
Looks like Jet and Cord weren't that far ahead of Brent and Caite...


Hope this link works - its a large file...

Since I was OOT, I missed some stuff at the time:

Interesting to read this in hindsight though.


The Amazing Race

Phil Keoghan Analyzes The Amazing Race‘s Final Three TeamsMay 9, 2010
Phil Keoghan, host of The Amazing Race, spoke to PEOPLE and broke down the pros and cons of the final three teams before the show’s finale Sunday night. Watch a sneak peek of the episode. Tune in to CBS (8 p.m. EST) to find out which set of world travelers will master motion capture at Lucas Films, reach Keoghan’s mat first and take home the $1 million prize in San Francisco, this season’s final destination. –Carrie Bell

The Cowboys: Jet and Cord McCoy
Strengths: Family ties are an asset and these brothers “with tremendous eye-hand coordination work extremely well together,” according to Keoghan. He also says they’re “the coolest team under pressure that we’ve ever had. The closest they ever got to losing their cool was in Seychelles when they forgot the map and even then I saw only a hint of frustration.” Maybe because this isn’t the professional bullriders first time at the rodeo. “They’re used to the limelight, high-level competition and performing under pressure,” Keoghan says.

Weaknesses: Keoghan is concerned that very same coolness might cost them first place. “They’re very even and nice and may not be able to amp it up to guarantee a win,” he says. “At this point, you have to get cutthroat and have a win-at-any-cost mentality. I don’t know if they have it in them to push past another team to take the only taxi. The slightest hesitation will cost you.” Their trademark wide-eyed awe may also cost them time. “It’s one of the things that viewers have really identified with, but if they stop to smell the coffee for too long, someone else will drink it.”

The Model Couple: Brent Horne and Caite Upton
Strengths: Keoghan, like most of the contestants and viewers, never pictured this dating duo in the finale because of their “opposite personalities, frequent bickering and [numerous] silly errors they made early on where they missed the little details,” he says. And of course there’s that infamous beauty pageant blunder that made her look like an airhead. “[The other teams] judged her on that and figured she wouldn’t be able to hack the Race,” he continues. “But Caite’s determination to prove herself is the reason they’re still in it. Ultimately she led that team with a do-or-die mentality. She would push past anybody to get to the finish line first. She’s made it very clear that she will do whatever it takes.”
Weaknesses: They’re the only unrelated pair left and they’ve known each other the least amount of time. “There’s an entirely different dynamic in boyfriend-girlfriend teams and they’re different people,” Keoghan explains. “Brent’s quite laid back and doesn’t like to be pushed too much. When he is, he tends to back down, give up and quit. Their different headspaces could become an issue.” Speaking of bad habits, she’s still the girl who froze and “lost the plot on national TV when the pressure was on,” he continues. “The stress of the final leg could trigger that same deer-in-headlights reaction.”

The Brothers: Dan and Jordan Pious:
Strengths: They’ve also got the brotherly bond working for them. It’s been Jordan’s dream to tryout for the Race and while Dan was never a big fan, he “has a tremendous amount of desire to help Jordan with his quest to win,” Keoghan says. “That determination to support his little brother and their close-knit relationship has allowed them to work well together and forced them to push themselves.”
Weaknesses: While this tough team deserves to be final three, Keoghan worries their emotions or tempers will get the best of them. “When the pressure’s on or things stop going their way, Jordan gets very emotional and then Dan has to spend time taking care of him,” he explains. “That’s where their game falls apart, although I admire how good of a job he’s done picking him up off the floor and moving him along. But an outburst could cost them precious minutes. Their tempers, as we saw in the taxi last episode, flare up under pressure and they get rattled.”

Thanks WalkingPneumonia!

Question: Why are Jet/Cord running to the finish line at 1.08pm and Daniel/Jordan at the club at 1.11pm?
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!
