1. Would you have been mad if Brooke and Claire had won?
I would have been slightly dissapointed if Brooke and Claire won, but not flat out mad.


2. Would you have been mad if Jill and Thomas had won?
For this one, yes I would have been mad.

3. What was your favorite moment of the season?
I couldn't decide. This was my favorite season of all time. I really liked the bungee in the last leg though. Maybe because I was so excited to see what happened.

4. What was your favorite task of the season?
Oh, geez. That's a hard one as well. I liked the tasks in Korea, and the iPad task in the last leg was cool as well. Oh, and the water table in Oman and boats in England.

5. What was the worst task of the season?
I'd have to say that I didn't like the "Ding Ding" and "Sampum" tasks in Hong Kong.

6. What do you think about TAR 18?
I love the idea. The "announcement" wasn't on the iTunes version of the episode, though.  :cmas15

7. Now that an all-female team has won, what type of team do you want to win now?

1. Would you have been mad if Brooke and Claire had won?
Not. But not as happy as I was when Nat & Kat crossed the finish line in first!

2. Would you have been mad if Jill and Thomas had won?
Not mad but I never really like them but they were really competitive so I would have mixed feelings.

3. What was your favorite moment of the season?
Can't chose only one. There was too many great moments in the whole season. But see Nat & Kat running up the stair of Greystone Mansion is at the top of my list right now.

4. What was your favorite task of the season?
Rappel the Skjomen Bridge in Narvik, Norway. Both detours in Saint Peterburg. Bungee free falling from the crane in LA. And the last memory task (its reminds me the one used in the last leg of TARLA1 but with tecnology)

5. What was the worst task of the season?
The Fast Forward eating sheep's head.

6. What do you think about TAR 18?
I'm excited to see some of the teams getting a second chance but still missing a lot of teams.

7. Now that an all-female team has won, what type of team do you want to win now?
The Father/Daughter or Father/Son team.

1. Would you have been mad if Brooke and Claire had won?
No, just a little disapointed that the better teams didn't win instead.

2. Would you have been mad if Jill and Thomas had won?
No. I would be as excited as those that picked Nat & Kat are now.

3. What was your favorite moment of the season?
There were so many. Just the begining seeing the boats carry in the teams like Captin Joe had filmed was great. The whole season was just great.

4. What was your favorite task of the season?
Either the final memory task or the geography task in Ghana

5. What was the worst task of the season?
I guess sitting on a block of ice...

6. What do you think about TAR 18?
Looks like fun. The title is actually nice as well. People can stop saying some of the returning teams arn't "all stars" as they are not all intended to be.

7. Now that an all-female team has won, what type of team do you want to win now?
Honestly, I don't care about gender or relationships. As long as the team is strong and runs a good race without being offensive or cocky, I'm happy with the outcome.

I would have liked to see Thomas & Jill win, but I'm pleased with Nat & Kat as our first female team to win at the same time. Congrats girls, you deserve it!

I initially chose 'I don't care who won' since, given how close all three teams were statistically you could say all three teams 'deserved' to win.

Realizing that, I then chose 'I wanted Brooke/Claire to win' since, all things equal, I have to go in favor of one of the most hilarious teams in race history.

That being said, Nat/Kat definitely earned their victory (and, in fact, all three teams earned their final placements  :cmas20)

1. Would you have been mad if Brooke and Claire had won? No. I liked them but not as much as I liked Nat and Kat.

2. Would you have been mad if Jill and Thomas had won? This is a yes and no answer. Yes because once again my favorite team would have lost but no because Jill and Thomas, once they really figured out the race they became good players.

3. What was your favorite moment of the season? I would also have to say Nat and Kat going up the stairs to the finish mat. A close second would be the stinky train cabin bonding moment between Team Blue and Team Pink.

4. What was your favorite task of the season? Probably the teams playing grodoki

5. What was the worst task of the season? Selling sunglasses

6. What do you think about TAR 18? I'm holding my reservations. I love this show but not 100% sure I'll watch Unfinished Business.

7. Now that an all-female team has won, what type of team do you want to win now? I too don't care about the relationship of the team but more so how the team races and if they are assholes.
You don't always win the race by making the best forward moves but you make it by avoiding the huge moves that set you back. -Nat

No. I really wanted this team to win but Nat/Kat in OK for me  :cmas16

2. Would you have been mad if Jill and Thomas had won?
YES!!! :cmas18

3. What was your favorite moment of the season?
Double uturn = intense + Brook and Claire being tough + Chad & Stephanie being eliminated

4. What was your favorite task of the season?
The music task in St-Petersbourg when they needed to find the right music

5. What was the worst task of the season?
Boxing. Just dumb & boring

6. What do you think about TAR 18?
Look OK for me...

7. Now that an all-female team has won, what type of team do you want to win now?
I REALLY want a parent/child team to win. There has just been only 3 parent/child type of teams that have been in the final three (Ronald Christina & Nicolas & Donald in season 12 (wow! they were the first!) and Margie & Luke in season 14)

1. Would you have been mad if Brooke and Claire had won?
Not at all! I love their personalities and liked them just as much as Nat & Kat.

2. Would you have been mad if Jill and Thomas had won?
I would have been a little disappointed but definitely not mad.

3. What was your favorite moment of the season?
The watermelon rebound. And when Nat & Kat won.

4. What was your favorite task of the season?
I actually liked watching the sunglasses selling. And the Pop Quiz in Ghana.

5. What was the worst task of the season?
The float decoration task was disappointing because there was no skill involved, just following directions. Also the Classic Music/Classic Cinema Detour in Russia was a good idea but very dull to watch.
...by the way I don't think the sitting on ice furniture Speed Bump was easy at all. At least, it wasn't easy for Kevin because he was wearing shorts and got frostbite all over his ass.

6. What do you think about TAR 18?
I'm really excited to see some of my favorite teams come back!

7. Now that an all-female team has won, what type of team do you want to win now?
Any team that doesn't act rude to each other or anyone else! Seeing a parent-child team win would also be good.

The shell boat task, watermelon face, the fast-forward

The shell boat

1. Would you have been mad if Brooke and Claire had won?

No, I would not have been mad at all, they were a great team.

2. Would you have been mad if Jill and Thomas had won?

Not mad, but disappointed.  Things seemed to fall their way the entire race.

3. What was your favorite moment of the season?

Honestly, seeing Chad so heated about being U-turned.  He rubbed me the wrong way the entire season.

4. What was your favorite task of the season?

I liked the symbol sequence in Ghana, the mini-sleds, and the gorodki ( I like tasks where a skill or pattern must be found)

5. What was the worst task of the season?

Wish there would have been more to the Float decorating, seemed like a menial task.

6. What do you think about TAR 18?

I have been excited for every season, so why not this one?

7. Now that an all-female team has won, what type of team do you want to win now?

I don't really have a "type" it seems like every race I find myself routing on a different type of team relative to how I relate to them.  This season it was Gary/Mallory and Nat/Kat the whole way.

Haha, me too!  The only people I personally know who watch the show are my mother and brother, so it seems to give me a whole new audience to discuss the show with!  ]

Back on topic, the finale was great.  It seems i have read a lot of people saying that there was no place for teams to catch up once Nat & Kat got the small lead from the bungees.  How I see it is, once they had the small lead they were mistake free.  If people want to blame someone for not making the finale "more exciting," they should blame N&K for running a great leg and not messing up.  They very, very much deserved to win!

Very true.  Although Nat & Kat got the lead from the taxi cab, they made no major mistakes (other than the float, which was easily corrected) and ran a great leg.  And that's why they won.
