Episode description from the TV guide:

In the grand finale, the three remaining teams will race across two continents in the quest to cross the finish line first. Language difficulties trip up teams in the beautiful southern Chinese countryside. Before flying home, one team makes a potentially disastrous decision. As teams return home to Australia, tensions flare between two rivals - but only one team will walk away with the $250,000.

I saw on a promo that the finsh line is on a beach. It realy looked like the TAR 20 finsh line (but of course different finsh line mat)
TAR24 - Dave & Connor, Afganimals
Survivor Cagayan - Tony, Spencer
MKR5 - Greek Twins, Surfer Dads,
BBCan2 - Sabrina, Allison

We're 99.9% sure the race finished somewhere on Fraser Island, so I wouldn't be surprised if the Finish Line was on a beach  :tup:

The only rivals I can think of are:

Paul & Steve VS Joseph & Grace
Michelle & Jo VS Paul & Steve

That basically confirms Paul & Steve in the Final 3  :(

I might not watch this final episode if either the cheerleaders or the Italian sisters didn't won the grand prize of A$250,000. :gaah:

I have a feeling Joseph and Grace might win. I'd be happy if they do, but it seems some other viewers and teams don't want them to.

Grace said in an interview that she's probably Joseph's 'favourite sister now'. In addition, I've heard other racers have criticised Grace's behaviour on social media sites. They wouldn't be allowed to say which team won, but what if Joseph and Grace won and they are unhappy because they didn't deserve it?

Anyway, I'm fine with any of the teams winning. Even Paul and Steve have grown on me.  :)

Yep. I agree with you
I really am hoping it's Michelle and Jo that win, but  it just seems too good to be true if they did win :'(

Last season, I knew it was Nathan and Tyler that were going to win just before the final episode. I knew it couldn't be Sam and Renae based on the amount of media appearances they made. And after the race they got modelling contracts etc
Nathan and Tyler WERE semi celebrities before the race, and the fact that they weren't making any media appearance during airing was odd, so I knew it was them.

And the same with this season. Michelle and Jo have done lots of media appearances, they got an article about fitness training in a magazine etc
I really don't think Paul and Steve will win because their edit has been way too negative for a winner.
What sticks out about Joseph and Grace is that they have made NO media appearances (except Grace at the TAR screening), they have gotten a very neutral edit, if you think about it all they've had is positive edit besides the Paul & Steve clash and stealing James & Sarah's taxi

I was very annoyed with Joseph & Grace from Episode 5-7, before that I really liked them and after they're fine. I won't mind seeing them win. The only teams that have been criticising Grace as far as I know are the Melbourne teams (except the Cops).
So yes I am betting that Groseph will take home the big prize, but it's a shame because I was really hoping for Michelle and Jo.

As for Lemilia and the Cops, I think the sisters will finish in 5th place and the Cops will take home the memorable '4th place' title.

That leaves us with the Final 3, I think that twins will lose their chance early and make some sort of huge blunder, and the two-team race is between Paul & Steve and Joseph & Grace. I'm fine with the siblings winning, as long as they don't piss me off again  :)

BTW, here are the remaining teams averages AFTER Leg 9 (teams listed in order of highest to lowest average):

1. Michelle & Jo: 3.1
2. Paul & Steve: 3.4
3. Shane & Andrew: 4.8
4. Joseph & Grace: 5.3
5. Lucy & Emilia: 7.8

Racers from past TAR seasons have criticized teams that have not won in the past either. I think Grace might be referring to the fact they did the race together and had the experience of doing it together which makes her his favorite sister.

Either way, time will tell! I don't really get a winning vibe from the siblings team and would prefer every other team still in the race to win over them.

Take this with a grain of salt but at the beginning before the season aired I posted a comment on Joseph and Grace's fan page underneath the opening titles they posted where Joseph and Grace were in the same position as Nathan & Tyler and I alluded to the fact that perhaps they're in a winning position. Now the interesting thing is that Joseph (on his personal facebook account) liked my comment instantly but soon after 'unliked' almost as if he had acted impulsively.

Yeah, that's really interesting... it could just be that he liked the observation that you had made and thought it was better to unlike it, although you never know... :duno:

Racers are VERY cautious with what they say. After TAR21 wrapped filming one of the racers made a tweet which looked to be a HUGE spoiler. I re-tweeted it on purpose and BAM it disappeared. But that's another story  :lol:

I also noticed a long time ago that Nathan & Tyler and Joey & Grace had the same intro spot, you never know  :duno:

Also notice Nathan & Tyler came 6th on the first Leg and so did Joey & Grace? But that could just be a coincidence  :lol:

AND if you are one of those superstitious people who follow the TAR curses, you will see that Joseph & Grace are most likely the winners:

- If you come 5th, 7th or 10th in the first Leg, you won't win the race (Michelle and Jo, Paul and Steve)
- If you come 5th in the 5th Leg, you won't win the race (Shane and Andrew)
- If you are one of the most legendary teams ever and everybody loves you, you sadly will not win the race (Lucy and Emilia)  :'(

That leaves us yet again with Joseph and Grace...

Bringing my speculated boot order back up from June:
11. Kym & Donna
10. Adam & Dane
9. Sue & Teresa
8. Ross & Tarryn
7. Sticky & Sam
6. James & Sarah
5. Lucy & Emilia
4. Shane & Andrew
3. Michelle & Jo
2. Paul & Steve
1. Joseph & Grace
And since then I've stuck with the same list, and I've been very close

I noticed Grace has a Facebook page called Fly With Grace, showing her adventures flying to different parts of the world.

Either she's really rich or somebody crossed a certain finish line first.

The prize money is never given out until AFTER the show is over.

For the record, Zabrina and Joe Jer were also second-last in their credits sequence. (Adrian & Collin were sixth, while the other two TAR Asia winners were both second.)

Going back to this... Michelle and Jo did briefly mention their rivalry with Paul and Steve in the final minutes of Episode 11... foreshadowing maybe?? :o

It's funny, because in some episodes, it plays up the rivalry between the cheerleaders and Paul & Steve (e.g. episode 2, episode 5, episode 6, episode 11) whereas other episodes played up the rivalry between the cops and Paul & Steve (e.g. episode 9, episode 10) so that makes it rather interesting... :lol:
