The Globetrotters are the team I like the least of the remaining four, but it seems to good to be true that they would be eliminated at the midpoint. :duno:

It's not a midpoint...it's a Pit Stop
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

 :dick taxi drivers!!

Why have so many finales been decided by the random antics of cabbies?! Gary and Mallory were taken out of contention from the beginning because their's could not find the way. Flight Time and Big Easy lost the lead they had been maintaining the whole time when their taxi just left them. They never regained that time margin they lost by searching for another cab.
Obviously the key ingredients for winning a TAR finale are racing hard and being lucky enough to get a competent cab driver.  :lol:

Like I say every year, why won't WRP make finales self driving?!?!  (:;)

To be fair, Gary and Mallory really should have gotten out of that cab when they knew something was up. One important thing on the race is learning damage control to minimize unlucky delays.

Still hate Sterling though.

It's hard to make the decision to get out and hope you can find another free cab going down the highway.

I just really think that in the finale they should eliminate those kinds of variables.

I can't agree with letting teams self-drive on the last leg. You'd likely have reckless driving caused by the sleep deprivation, lack of knowledge about the area, and huge incentive for being fast.

Hired drivers, however, I think so.

That is a good point that I hadn't thought of, Zack. I suppose WRP doesn't want to be responsible for crazy teams who could drive recklessly for the million dollars. :lol:
The cabbie issue has happened too many times though.

Prophet,

I will give you three good reasons. The use of taxi drivers, which appear to be much more variable in quality than you might expect, causes unpredictability in the final leg. Also, World Race Productions favors that over earned, predictable endings. Finally, teams are always coming into the U.S. on flights lasting 8 hours or more and would not be particularly safe self-drivers.

Peach, I think you have it backwards...if it's on   Sunday night at 8:30 pm local time in Australia, then that would be 6:30 am EST on Sunday morning, which has already occurred....

I think that's what she meant. Maybe she is starting to write in shorthand like I do.  :lol:

Thanks for clarifying it!  :tup:

However, Peach did not get the time right. TAR Australia is at 830pm MONDAY night, so that does in fact mean 630am on Monday on the East Coast U.S. (I know it's 14 hours time difference most of the year due to my daughter living in Queensland).
