"Nice guys do finish first some times" - Josh and Brent

Okay, I hate to say this but this is probably one of the best seasons ever! I'm not being biased but it was a spectacular finale. Nobody know who will win until 5 to 10 minutes before the show! WHATTTTTTTT?

Care to explain how this was one of the best seasons ever? I am wondering this because I think this was hands down the worst season besides Family Edition, which I don't even really count as a season.

Good for you that your rooting interest won, but Josh and Brent were the least deserving winners in the history of the show, and that isn't an opinion, its a fact that they they had the worst average placing of any team to ever win the show.

I also thought the locations were boring. Too much of China and Russia. Plus, two legs of Indonesia is pure torture. The rest of the locations were not too bad, but overall the route was awful, nothing new and nothing that interesting.

I also thought that there weren't that many interesting teams on the show. The final three might have been the most bland final three in the history of the show. A lot of people hated the Twins, but at least they brought some drama to the show, the rest of the teams were so non-conflictual and they were just not interesting.

But thats just my opinion. Care to explain what you thought made this one of the best seasons ever? Saying your rooting interest won doesn't count though. Any actual reasons?

I think this is one of the best finales ever. Tons of drama.

While I agree that this route isn't one of the best, I definitely don't think this is the "worst season ever". :cmas30: I also don't understand where all this Beekman hate is coming from...

People who are saying that it is worst season ever and do not like the winners should stick with Survivor.

The best part was the final task. It was anyone to win or lose.

Lexi slowed herself down with tears, that will win you nothing. A shame they were great racers.

The Chips were impressive with the Flags, congrats to them on finishing so fast. They have never come across as being the best at the mental challenges. Good guys.

The Josh and Brent won the final challenge and rightfully deserve the million. They methodically solved out that flag challenge. Just as deserving as the rest to win.

Remember never to buckle under pressure and you may will the race.

Beekman were the underdogs definitely, but I loved that this season was exciting every single leg such that Andy and Tommy or Rachel and Dave didn't win every leg. The final 6 teams all won legs and it was nice to watch that all the teams had capabilities and not just a one sided affair.

It was a refreshing change for a memory challenge, and Josh won the game for them with his maths problem way of solving the task. They took 2 hours plus to complete it and it was anybody's game.

This was a hard finale task and nobody, except the best could do it. Josh and Brent deserved to win as much as all other one leg winners does (Eric and Danielle coughs).

I loved how the Beekman ran their race, completely under the radar and then turning on their power to win the very last one. And it's not like they stumbled upon two NELs or what and crashed and burn throughout. They had some decent legs too. IMO Dan and Andrew were worst.

I believe all of us have our different favourites so just respect that okay? I was hoping Trey and Lexi would get it too but too bad, Lexi couldn't keep it calm. Chippendales seemed disappointed but... hey, they tried.

Great end to a great season. Would have been happy if any of the F3 teams won, since twinnies are not there. :cmaslol

Awful finish to the worst season on the history of the show besides the Family Edition. A team that didn't even come in 1st or 2nd the whole race besides the last leg won the 1 Million dollars. I really don't know how lucky a team can get on the Amazing Race. First they got a Non-Elimination Leg that saves them from elimination. Then they got saved because another team was U-Turned when Josh and Brent would have been the last place team. I have nothing against Josh and Brent, they seem like nice guys, but winners of this show? Pathetic. Absolutely pathetic.

Season 22 better be good because Season 21 was overall just a poor season. From the cast, to the locations, to the drama, the tasks, and the winners. I don't think you could say any 22 was good in any of those aspects. Maybe I am overreacting but Season 21 was an absolute failure. Locations weren't interesting, few interesting teams and awful winners.

I agree on EVERYTHING except the Family Edition part. At least the teams were decent and weren't awful and the race had good tasks despite being in North America(though notice 'edition' not a real TAR) and I liked it, way better than most races and dang more better than this hole that is TAR21.

I won't pretend to know so much because I didn't even watch Family Edition, I thought it was a waste of my time. I am purely just judging it on the concept of families racing around the United States, I don't find that very interesting. As far as the actual season was concerned, I didn't watch it, so maybe I am dead wrong. However, I just assumed it was awful.

Back to Season 21 though. This was just an awful season. People cloud their rooting interests and reality. Just because someone liked Josh and Brent doesn't mean this makes this one of the best seasons ever. Maybe they enjoyed this season the most because their rooting interest won, but enjoyment and reality are different. I have never clouded my rooting interest with reality. The season should be graded upon locations, drama, personalities of the teams, and how deserving the winner was. I don't think Season 21 did very well in any of those categories.

And..... congrats to..... Josh & Brent!!!  :cmas26

They have OFFICIALLY made the record for the least averaged placing to win TAR!

Is this the first time ever a Finish Line was indoors? :cmas19

Actually, season 16's winners, Jordan and Daniel had a lower placement average for a winning team (4.3333) compared to the Beekman Boys (4.2500)

For those who say worst season ever please

Every season is unique with new locations and teams. I don't think there has ever been a "worst season"

I was hoping for the twinnies to win but knew of their demise hopefully they and James and Abba are back for an All Stars run.

I was gonna do the HATERS ARE GONNA HATE AVATAR for Josh and Brent but decided not to do it because it was just too childish.

But if I did it, it was to show how annoying it can get when people do the HATERS ARE GONNA HATE thing for their avatar. :cmaslol

I couldn't agree more Polaroid! I love France and NYC! Awesome legs! and an AMAZING final challenge, which was executed very well and looked awesome too!

It DEFINITELY was not one of the worst seasons ever. It's not one of the best, but it was really good! We don't hate the Beekmans, we just think they dont deserve it based on the fact that they only used their skill at the very last challenge.

Exactly, I probably would've appreciated TAR 20 more had Rachel & Dave not dominated the entire thing  :cmas3

Side/random fact: First time since 18 where all NEL's were rewarded to each different teams  :cmaslol (this counts for KRL's too)

Okay, let's establish that it's ONE OF THE BEST SEASONS... FOR ME. In a long long time.

If you don't agree with it, stop watching the show, switch to Survivor, bake some cakes. :reindeer

Not happy at all with the winners, almost as bad as when Dan/Jordan won. Only bad thing about this season though.

I think this was one of the better seasons. I loved the evil plot to kick out Abby and Ryan. It was so skillful and smart. Its the first we seen the U-turn used with such skill. It completely changed the race.

I think Abbie and Ryan could have a great shot winning... so the Dream Team actually opened the path for Beekman to win by helping them get rid of a strong team.

im gonna agree and disagree with that. this WASNT a trainwreck season like some others, but it WASNT  terrific season. it was in the middle. this finale was spectacular, they were the best legs. and i did not realise the memory challenge would be such a bitch! i mean, they were out til night time! i am very dissapointed the beekmans won. dont get me wrong, i like them, but they werent deserving. if a deserving team wins, i'll be happy regardless if i like them or not. after leg 4, they either placed last or second last in every leg. now thats pretty poor if you ask me.
i love it when underdogs win, but not when they ran a completely shit race and were not strong at all! e.g. kisha and jen were NEVER in danger of elimination, but the beekmans were on the elimination list 7/12 legs. wth

I agree with everything you said. In addition to that, I wasn't a fan of the route. Too much China and Russia. Plus, I just don't find Indonesia interesting at all, and two legs of Indonesia is torture, IMO. The rest of the route wasn't too bad, but I still think this was one of the worst routes ever.

I also don't think the teams were incredibly interesting. The Twins were interesting whether you liked them or not, that you can't dispute. However, the other teams are basically seen on every season. Trey and Lexi are the young athletic couple, Chippendales are the Alpha-Males, Josh and Brent play the role of the underdog gays. I just don't think this cast was that interesting. I am not basing this off of one or two teams, I really think overall there were very few teams that were interesting.

The last thing I base it off is drama. Except for the twins, there was nothing. The twins created all the drama on this season. The rest of the teams were so non-conflictual.

Are you kidding? There was not a single new country in this season. Even Family Edition went to new countries!!!!! And it's not just that, but the locations in the countries were the same as what they always go to!

The last two seasons IMO have been great!! Both had great casts. So that is what the Amazing Race needs.

Phil promises next season is going to be worth watching!
