Thank you to everyone who voted! The results were not surprising, but Nat and Kat winning was an enjoyable end to an enjoyable season.
TAR 17 was a good race that will not be easily forgotten!  :cmas16

again no, if they win, they would have deserved it.

Claire getting smashed with a watermelon

the Roadblock in  Leg 7 with the sticks.

5. What was the worst task of the season?
probably the final task. didn't quite live up to my expectations

I think it will be great!  :cmas22 I love all star seasons!

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.

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

2. Would you have been mad if Jill and Thomas had won?
No. Because whoever won deserved it

3. What was your favorite moment of the season?
The shell boat task, watermelon face, the fast-forward

4. What was your favorite task of the season?
The shell boat

5. What was the worst task of the season?
The ice chair thing. Too easy speed bump, although it will not have mattered anyway

6. What do you think about TAR 18?
Cool

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

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.
