This is it! The final episode, airs 8:30pm till 10pm 9pm till 10:30pm on Monday, 1 August. Here are the TV guide details:

It's a race to the finish line when The Amazing Race Australia returns home for the winners to be crowned tonight. In Singapore, the teams seek their race riches from a local fortune teller; while a 55 storey tight-rope crossing Detour tests their nerves. Back in Australia, they search Fremantle Prison for their next clue. But the final challenge brings them all unstuck as they struggle to remember the highlights of their epic journey. Only one team will persevere to get to the finish line first and take home the $250,000 prize. Hosted by GRANT BOWLER, LUKE, JEFF, MATT NUNN, TOM WARRINER, TYLER ATKINS, NATHAN JOLLIFFE, SAM SCHOERS and RENAE WAUHOP.

Wow! The finish already! I'm not sure which team I really want to win. I prefer Sam and Renae over the others, but I would not mind if either of the other two won.

Good luck to all three! :)

averages as of episode 10:

Tyler & Nathan    2.40 
Matt & Tom     3.20                                                       
Jeff & Luke     3.20                         
6th Anastasia & Chris      4.50   
5th Dave & Kelly      4.55 
                   
Sam & Renae    4.60                                                     
7th Alana & Mel     6.66                               
11th Ryot & Liberty    7.00                             
9th Richard & Joey     7.25                       
8th Mo & Mos     8.60   
10th Anne-Marie & Tracy   8.66 


Sam and Renae had the lowest average placement at the beginning of leg 11, and I think they were lucky to make it this far.  They won legs 1 and 11, but have had many close calls in between.  I wouldn't mind seeing them win though.

Can't wait for the final! :wohoo:

FYI, The Amazing Race Australia finale has been pushed back to 9pm next Monday to avoid a clash with the Masterchef finale on a rival channel. It will be a 1.5 hour show.

whether they're in front or not, I'm just glad we have a finish mat, I still don't understand why TARA used a regular pitstop mat, well it's a cheap production so maybe they can't afford a real finish mat? or they just think we won't know the difference, TARA takes it's audience for granted.

Bring on the 21!

this is the second time (first being TAR12) that every team in the final three is likeable and I won't mind seeing any of them win.

just to make sure of my statement. final 3 teams I didn't like (seasons I've watched)
(winners are in green)
Season 3: Teri and Ian (mostly Ian)
Season 5: Colin and Christie (they're still awesome though, but not likeable)
Season 6: Freddy and Kendra (inconsiderate racist b*tch)
Season 7: Ron and Kelly (STFU Ron, we know you're POW, nobody gives a crap)
Season 9: Eric and Jeremy (pimps)
Season 10: Ron and Kimberly (god...) Lyn and Karlyn (b*tches)
Season 11: Eric and Danielle (two terrible persons)
Season 13: Nick and Starr (Blander than sunflower seeds)
Season 14: Jaime and Cara (Xenophobics)
Season 15: Sam and Dan (As bad as Lynn and Alex)
Season 16: Dan and Jordan (most undeserving whiny team EVAR)
Season 17: Jill and Thomas (excruciating to watch)
Season 18: Flight Time and Big Easy (Ignorant, Pompous, Mean, Unfunny, Annoying, Self-centered and they U-turned the Cowboys)
Asia 1: Sandy and Francesca (should have been gone the first leg)
Asia 2: Marc and Rovilson (Waaayy to dominant and not very funny)
Asia 3: Geoff and Tisha (absolutly irritating, particularly Geoff)
Asia 4: Richard and Richard (Selfish meatheads)
Bring on the 21!

I cheered when I saw that. That's what been bothering me the most about the Latin America version. As exciting as TAR_LA S2  was resolved by a footrace to the finish line, it felt somewhat tasteless without the other teams on the mat.

Loving that we get a two location finale like older seasons of TAR had.

It doesn't even matter what they do in Singapore.

But if you want to know. They definitely went to the Marina Bay Sands, The Youth Olympic Park, which is near the Marina Bay Sands and of course.. The Singapore Flyer.. which is near to the Youth Olympic Park and Marina Bay Sands. :res:

So I guess either they go for durians first then go to Youth Olympic Park > Marina Bay Sands (ropes task) > Singapore Flyer (receive clue back to Australia)

I stand corrected. Yes. its not the finale, but finals week. I guess the ratings for Ten will be near 2 million all week so I don't think Seven wanted to risk any overlap of the shows.

It's said that in the history of TAR the team in which there is a member named Tyler would always win in the finale.

It's said that no parent-child team could win in the finale.

It's also said that any team that gets the Express Pass would be No.3 in the finale.

So now we know the possible result of the next episode. :lol:

Hopin g that either Sam & Renae or Jeff & Luke would win, as I don't like Tyler & Nathan.

Final road block, put the flags of the countries they visited in the right order. Tyler & Nathan don't seem to know all the flags! All teams now together at the same time. Could be a close finish, however all teams seem to be guessing now!  :groan:

The surfers definitely deserved their win, they sustained their lead throughout the entire leg up until the roadblock and Nathan blitzed the other two at it (although that's not saying much  :lol:) A very solid leg for the two of them, the best team really did win  :hoot:

Fantastic job Sam & Renae  :jam: I'm dissapointed you didn't win  :( but they sure made up some time in Perth  :jam:  :jam:  :jam:  :jam: They're winners in my books, one of the best teams of the season by far  :<3 Jeff & Luke, great job at making it to the end and finishing the race!  :yess:

And seriously, what the hell was with that horrific effort at flag geography  :groan: I promise you guys not all of us Aussies are like that. I would have got it in one of the first few tries!  :lol:

So the "Tyler" spell hasn't been broken!

If you're enrolled in this game, please change your name to Tyler, which could bless you all legs and bring you to No.1. :lol:

Well, Tyler&Nathan won. Congratulations.

But about the finale:

Best. Finale. Ever. Exactly what i thought the perfect finale should be - not based on physical strengh or knowing the terrain, but also luck have something to tell here. Basically one more mistake on the flyer, one more door at the prison, one more durian may cost one team the 1st place.

The detour was also good - because it wasn't obvious which tasks could be easier and quicker to do, it depended from the physical form from the teams. And the roadblock - I laughed so hard when every team had mistaken the polish flag with indonesian. And every team were suprised because ther was not enough flag poles :D! And again, perfect montage with the race to the pit stop! My heart was beating so fast during that :D. Damn i'm sensitive...

But after all, it was a good season. Better that american 17 and 18 [18 season was good only because of the stars]. It had some great moments, but also some things need's to be improved [like more fast forwards, yields or u-turn's]. And i want Grant Bowler to stay.

That's all, i'm out.

I couldn't disagree more. Luck challenges have NO, absolutely NO business being in a final leg.
Find the right fruit.
Pick the right flyer.
Find the right prison cell.

All of these were luck challenges, and the surfers lucked out the most on every single one. Let Nathan & Tyler "switch luck" with the girls at the Ferris wheel, and suddenly they're the ones on the second flight. Suddenly they lose one hour by switching places, purely due to luck.

I don't mind that the surfers won, because out of the three teams they ran the best race. But I still hate the luck challenges.

Two finish lines from Amazing Race Asia were visited in this one episode. I was hoping that someone would be like Adrian with the flags, but nope.

One Amazing Race curse that hasn't been broken is that no team I've been rooting for in the finale has won. Not once.  :(

That was an awesome finale. I'm happy for Tyler & Nathan. They deserved to win this leg and ultimately the race. :js: The editing in this leg was great. The airtime of each of the teams felt pretty even.

I didn't think that Singapore Flyer task was fair... or the jail task. Teams could have been stuck there for ages. :nut: The final roadblock was super difficult. I'm surprised everybody got it. :lol:

Congrats to all teams! :conf:

Congrats to the winners, Tyler & Nathan.  They weren't my favorite team, but they performed well consistently from start to finish and definately earned the 250K.  It was a great show put on by the Aussies and I'm already looking forward to season 2.  Hopefully in Season 2 they will start the race with a leg in the US.  It would be cool to see em race here in the States.  Outside of the family edition the only time we see racers here are starts and finishes.  To have the Aussies race here would be spectacular and I'm sure they could find plenty of tasks to do here.

Congrats to all the teams! There was a lot of great chemistry between the teams which really made things more enjoyable for me. The final was pretty nail biting since practically everything was luck based and it was a theme that they had from start to finish (for the episode). How much do you guys want to bet that the fortune teller was given a recap of some of the things that happened in the race, not all of it but stuff that resulted in flash backs.  :lol:

Season one was definitely a success in my opinion and the ratings seem to be doing well, I hope the show will continue on for years to come.

What I found really discouraging and disheartening and totally a turn off is that after so many seasons of TAR.. all 3 teams still did not have any idea of the flags to the country they have been to. I can't believe that i'm only 21 and I can recognise all those flags at the Roadblock task yesterday! (:;)

Cool. My three favorite teams of this race were able to make it to the final three! Although I would be happier if Sam & Renae won, but I'm definitely alright with Nathan & Tyler winning. They were really dominating the race, they were doing great decisions and luck was on their side especially when they were robbed during the train ride to Poland. They lost their money but they still were able to survive every leg.

Sam & Renae are now my favorite team of all time! Yes, even prefer these models over those beauty queens (Dustin & Kandice). Wow, I was very surprised they won the first leg. I thought Nathan & Tyler would win it or Matt & Tom. I haven't watched the finale leg yet because I just finished watching Episode 9 (I'm having a TAR Australia marathon!). Sam & Renae's reaction in that episode after Grant told them they're team number four was priceless and epic!  :wohoo: I watched that scene over and over again.

I think that if they have watched the Asian version of TAR, they would have dominated the entire race especially that final task, but of course they didn't have any idea that tasks in the Asian version would be used in this race. The flag task was very easy, I can finish that task in a minute just like what Adrian did in TARA2.

Finally, it's great to see that Tyler and Sam are hooking up or dating? Just read it and I also heard during the race Nathan's kinda like teasing Tyler when Sam & Renae arrived somewhere (don't remember which episode).

It's been a great season, definitely looking forward for season 2!  :wohoo:

I do not accept the statement "the flag task was very easy." That was the case only for Adrian, an expert in national flags from childhood, in the finale of Amazing Race Asia 2. Every other individual, including Nathan, Sam, Luke, Vanessa and particularly Rovilson really had trouble with this special finale-only ROADBLOCK.

I think it is nice that eragon and Joab think they are pros at selecting the national flags. I can tell you that I have a great deal of world travel experience and I think I probably could do it quicker than those 5 above did. My guess is that under extreme pressure it would probably take me about a half hour of trying out changes from an initial matching of flags to episode numbers or order to get it right. Maybe eragon and Joab would not feel the pressure of either $100,000 U.S. or $250,000 Aus. It's easy to sit in what Americans typically refer to as "the peanut gallery"  but it would be much more difficult to do this in the actual  environment that those 5 individuals did.

It seems to me that the flag task is only hard under pressure if the person comes into the race with limited geographic knowledge. Luke clearly stated that he only knew the Australian flag was 100% correct. Many of us on the board would probably find the task easy because I believe that we all enjoy knowing things like this. Were I to be doing that roadblock, I'd like to think my knowledge of flags combined with taking in where the race sent me would make it a simple challenge.
