I've just gotta say, TAR editors learnt their lessons on the finale preview for once. No images of two finale teams together at the same time to know who's together with who..

AND NO FINISHING LINE RUN DOWN. How many times were we spoiled by that?! :lol:

Makes it harder for the TAR detectives... :lol:

Exactly when I was boarding my flight to Oslo.   :groan:

Phil said "It's the season finale you won't wanna miss"

Hahah! This tells me that this season will be the first F/F team to win the race :)

Nat/Kat are so humble.
Brook/Claire is definitely fun to watch.
Jill/Thomas are a team to beat.

My guess is (from the preview), brook/claire won. Hahaha!  :groan:

"Im sorry to tell you that you have been eliminated from the race" is the most horrible thing to hear on TAR haha :)

This preview seems to spell out the result for me...

Jill & Thomas are shown at the final challenge first.
Nat & Kat are shown at the final challenge second.
Brooke & Claire are shown at the final challenge third.

then...

Jill & Thomas are shown in the cab first.
Nat & Kat are shown in the cab second.
Brooke & Claire are shown in the cab third.


While at the final challenge Jill & Thomas look as though they have found a method & are about to crack it. Nat & Kat look concentrated and on-task. Brooke and Claire look completely lost.

I've done a fair amount of film editing and I'm worried that their editor has done a fairly basic job at this preview, placing teams in the final order but trying to throw people off the scent with a misleading quote from Brooke & Claire "The first female team to ever win" as well as a helicopter "happy-shot", similar to the one of Charla and Mirna used in the All Stars finale preview.

From this trailer I think it's almost certain that Jill and Thomas will win. Nat and Kat will get second. Brooke and Claire will get third.

Also, probably doesn't mean anything... but I'm fairly sure that the cab shot of Jill & Thomas was taken from around an airport/helicopter landing pad... whereas the other two look as though they are in an area near the finish line. This could mean that Jill & Thomas' final taxi ride was not suitable for the trailer- be it because they were acting clearly victorious, or clearly defeated.

Nice job woden!

If I remember correctly, that finish line should be RIGHT by the parking lot. Probably less than 100 yds from car to finish line.

Looks like LAX to me.

Nope. For example in this recent episode, Brooke and Claire were seen to be rafting first before Jill and Thomas in the previews. But in actual fact, Jill and Thomas were actually at the rafting task first.

And since they will be taking cabs for the entire leg (i believe), the cab scenes could be anywhere in the entire leg. So it doesn't really work that way.

As for the finale challenge task in the order teams were shown.. remember it's a memory task. A team that reaches first does not necessarily complete the memory task first. Ken and Tina, Margie and Luke, Eric and Jeremy and Ronald and Christina can all prove this theory right. :lol: Unless it's some lame task like TAR 16 to place the eliminated teams order. :res:

Nat and Kat's cab shot looks an awful lot like Tammy and Victors in the finale of TAR 14. Just sayin'

This is my speculation: :(
1)Jill and Thomas :'( :'( :'(
2)Brook and Claire(they say they wanna be the first female winners of tar,so they won't be ...for sure (:;) (:;))
3)Nat and Kat  (because of Nat's   fear of heights...that  task  is impossible)

I hope for the race to the Finish Line, they show the Final 3 teams in their taxis, neck and neck (even if they were'nt), with the dramatic music playing and the winners emerging from round the corner and..   :jumpy:

Oh my goodness I can't say enough how EXCITING this finale is gonna be! Like OH MY GOSH!!!!!!

I don't know, but have they actually hyped up an all-female team winning so much before? TAR 11 had two all-female teams in the finale but I don't recall that there was much hype about it. Whereas for this season, there's been constant talk about having the first all-female team win, and even in the finale, there was special mention of two strong female teams taking on the last man standing. Is the purpose of all this hype to hint that we'll really have our first all-female winners, or just a platform to get us all excited and then set our expectancies to fall? There is so much hype this season, many people are sure that an all-female team will win. (Just look at RFF alone.) Maybe all that hype comes to nothing after all and all of us get surprised for the last time this season...

I just have a sneaky feeling that Jill and Thomas win. I really do. I'm trying to stay grounded, so that when they really win, I won't be too sad with this season. Lol...

hmm.. i just gonna guess what the final challenge would be..

maybe it would be like TAR: China rush final task, where they would place on a map where their pitstops are?

It seems impossible but I have a feeling that they are playing a 'Who wants to be a millionaire?' kind of game? Just maybe.  :duno:

Good spec.......

I was thinking it was a television studio or a movie set........just didnt get as detailed as you. So maybe the helicopters fly them from Long Beach to Century City or Burbank. ( you LA people know better than I do where the locations might be).....then a taxi to Beverly Hills to the finish line...........

Gosh. Can't wait!! The promo is just amazing! I can't wait any more second to watch the finale.

Also, Phil's eyebrow for the Finish Line! So, a tough leg, I just hope this is a season to be reminded because of an FF team winning it.

Finally, Nat and Kat don't seem to be happy in their final confessional... That's not good at all.

We need a clear freeze frame on Katie and Rachel. If theyre happy, Jill and Thomas won. If they are angry, a F/F team won.

Hmmmm Im so confused, because its looking really good for Nat and Kat & Jill and Thomas, but I really want Brook and Claire to win!!
