Special kudos for Vanessa for Osaka. I just twisted MY ankle 3 days ago, and I don't think I'd even TRY that roadblock!  Well, maybe, for $1M....!

If the final task has anything to do with a map puzzle, flags etc. I will definitely win! (unless someone else of equal knowledge is there as well :lol:)

Loved the last episode!! And the team I picked to win won...how about that LOL Congrats to Dave & Rachel, very deserving winners!  :hoot: Funny how Davechel were able to overcome their huge mistake but Brenchel weren't. Art & JJ could've easily won but it wasn't meant to be.

 :wohoo:

I am impressed with R&D for not freaking out after their first visit to the finish line, and getting right back to the business of RAAAACING!  The other Rachel would have probably imploded on the spot if that had happened to her.

Well, each team had one significant mess up: A&J deciding to be "followers" (hehe) out of the airport, R&B with the random trip to Aloha Stadium (um, and only then do they really read the clue), and then R&D stumbling upon the finish line (it's like they were pulled in by a "winner" magnet).

Regarding the tasks of the final leg: I felt that the climbing and rappelling was the best finale task in a few seasons. And the tasks that weren't as epic were still really good and relevant to the area.

my thoughts on the episode:

- I'm glad they paid respects in Hiroshima
- the RB was funny but I feel SO bad for Vanessa, she looked like she was in so much pain! But she's a trooper for pulling through
- i would LOVE to play sushi bingo!
- great final leg, tasks were well balanced out, climbing the towers was an AWESOME route info, and I'm happy with the finish order regardless of who made it into the F3

and i think this is the first time i am COMPLETELY satisfied after watch a season of TAR  :conf:
the locations, challenges, teams
and even though i didn't favour the boot order, i was happy with the winners  :)

here's to a great season, and awesome work to all the RFFers who helped spoilers  :ghug:

so PUMPED for TAR21  :wohoo:

Is it just me, or does everyone feel satisfied with the season? I haven't felt that way with TAR in awhile

It was an awesome season. Idk how it could have been better. WRP excelled at the route and tasks in each episode (except Azerbaijan) and the casting was one of the all time classics, right up there with TAR14, 6, and 5!!

I'm more or less with Prophet. This was very close to an epic season. However, the ones I have in mind as better are AR7 and AR2. It easily outdistances every other Amazing Race after AR7.

Wooooowwwww! Phil was quoted as saying that Rachel of Dave & Rachel was his personal MVP for the race - for being highly competent, even-keeled and all that! She was outstanding in both Osaka and the final roadblock.

You got that right!! She is one of the all time racers, comparable to Gary and Cord in both skill and loveability!

Again, right church, wrong pew, Prophet. I agree that Rachel Brown was truly outstanding. I see that as putting him in a class with Zach (AR3; how could anyone forget him), Colin (AR5), Rob (AR7, very sneaky and using his fame to the max, but very effective) and Victor (AR14). Gary and Cord were very good but not in the same league as these.

So who do we pair Rachel with for allstars? This season's Brendan or 2nd Chance's Captain America himself  (Gary)!

Hey...if they split up two pairs to put one new pair in for 2nd Chances, they can give Rachel a more appreciative partner!

The one time World Race Productions allowed an assembled team the results were OK for Eric and Danielle but disastrous for viewers. It won't ever happen again, as CBS and WRP learned their lesson.

You were thinking of the Branson Family (my mistake on this has been corrected thanks to some helpful comments), but as someone above has pointed out it was the Linz Family that actually won the map challenge and AR8. I do want to bring something to your attention, the ages of the Branson sisters:
Lindsay, 20 when AR8 was run
Lauren 22
Elizabeth 25

Does that qualify them as "girls"? I don't think so.

I do agree that the map challenge was the best final leg mental challenge ROADBLOCK except possibly the AR12 scales/items.
