Terrible season.  Terrible finale.  Worst winners since Dan & Jordan.  Gives me a sick feeling in my stomach - yuck!

Hoping for much better in Season 22. 

I think I must agree with you.
Dan and Jordan was the worst winner up until last night.
At least Dan and Jordan had some strategies back in season 16. They took it slow on purpose and just strike at the end.

While Josh and Brent is like "You know what, Let's just get there and do this together." It's like they don't actually care. Even Ryan realized it when he said "They got what they need going further in the race" before he realized there are no more empty slots in U-Turn mat  :cmaslol.

When Brent said "We would have you guys U-turned us and we'll do this thing together." I was like  :cmas18 "HELL NO! What the f*ck? Just freaking go!" Yes that was so nice.... but this is not "The Amazing Friends".

Even Phil is not so excited I think. These are some of Phil tweets about final three as I could remember :
"Congrats #Chippendales on the new Fords"
"#Trey may have future in magic. I don't think Houdini himself could escape from that faster than him"
"Beekmans never won a leg, but they are from NY. Home advantage? Oh well!"

Overall, this season will be in half top position in my rankings. I am sure there will be many teams from this season to be back for next All Stars since most of them are All-Star worthy! :cmas9

I wouldn't be surprised either! They did a really good job casting. Seriously, I wouldn't be surprised if this is TAR14 for the next AS!

So in their second chance all will fail except for the sisters team.  :cmas18.... i'm so here for that.  :cmas9 :cmastree

WOW Josh and Brent? Really ???  :cmas12
I bet Abby and Ryan were back flipping when Josh&Brent arrived...   :cmas50

I remembered posting something here before that goes like this
"The Chippendales didn't need to U-Turn Abby&Ryan (and saving Josh&Brent). They're so far behind. If Josh&Brent end up winning, they're gonna look back at this."

Can't believe it actually happened.  :cmas5

Don't get me wrong, I like Josh&Brent. But seeing them winning is absolutely horibble.
I am a huge fan of Dave&Rachel, and compared them to Josh&Brent, OH MY GOD I think I am gonna do the backflip myself.  :cmas22

a team who took a freaking penalty at a detour, ended up winning. Oh heaven!
If they took a penalty like how Rob and Amber took a penalty in season 7, I wouldn't mind cause It was good move.but the way they took it, oh man!

but anyway, congratulations to Josh&Brent  :cmas26



God Ryan is such a baby in there. When Jaymes&James and Trey&Lexi walked in he just stood there like he didn't care. Seriously like grow up! People said this season is a lot like season 16, well I guess they are right. We got a male version of Brandy up there. (remember Brandy who got so upset over Caite for U-turning her.) I wonder how will he be if he got evicted from the BB House?

And he tweeted something like "...the winner will get a free chippendale show". He said in his interview that he dated Jaymes V. He was so upset he got U-Turned. What a baby! Go talk to Kris&Amanda they got u-turned twice they're doing just fine

I once thought that the editors may not like him that's why he didn't get a very good editing. But now I think the editors are just being real and honest.

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)
Really... surprising? :o

Really, guys, really?

LOL really guys really?
well,  The Twins and The Chippendales have really strong edits I guess they'll be in All Stars no questions.

Not so sure about Trexie. Their edit was not that sharp even though they won most legs.

Abby&Ryan, James&Abba and maybe Amy&Daniele for another Unfinished Business seasons.

The winners never really got a strong edit actually. DaveRachel ended up being boring winners. Booper's way more famous. I love'em though they're awesome.  Ernie&Cindy's are just plain boring. Nat&Kat's? I don't know I was too busy laughing at Brook&Claire. Dan&Jordan's, well Jet&Cord was in there too so..  :cmas16

My fav reaction when teams entered were of the twins. One was clapping and the other had their jaw on the floor saying OMG!  :cmaslol :cmaslol :cmaslol

At least 4 teams I can see back:
Nadiya/Natalie and the Chippendales for an all stars run (that is now three straight seasons where a M/M team could likely make an all stars version with M/B and A/T)

James/Abba and Ryan/Abbie for another unfinished business for obvious reasons.

I don't think Andy&Tommy are capable for All Stars though. Yes they won like half the race but they ain't no stars. Unfinished Business certainly. Put Bill&Cathy in All Stars  :cmaslol (I am  dead serious! if they're looking for an old couple All-Stars)

Poor cast, and for most of the race poor tasks and locations too.  Possibly in my bottom 5 of all seasons.  And I agree Dan and Jordan were bad winners, though overall that season may have been more memorable for me.  To get back on track they might learn from the last Australian season which was classic.

The memory task featured languages so I guess that favoured the goat farmers as one of them seemed to be good in that area.  Would have preferred Trey and Lexi to win, though she did have a breakdown eventually (as I predicted several weeks ago).  Wonder if she finished that memory task or if they were just told to go to the finish...

The Chippendales were a pretty weak team mentally, they only u-turned Abbie and Ryan because of pressure from the twins, not because of their strategy.

Also when a team says they are the 'good guys' that's a bit annoying, I'll decide for myself who the good guys are.  Reminds me of BJ and Tyler.

And when the farmers said it was winner takes all that was quite obviously wrong.  Teams who don't win can actually still get a lot of prize money.  Obviously the producers don't like people knowing that they want the focus to be completely on who wins.

Embarrassing that Texas does not know the UN symbol. Come on people!

I completely agree! As a Model UN delegate, this saddens me. :(

Chips didn't know as well. Shame on them, really.

(I've done model UN before, both as a delegate and a chairperson. I performed much better in the chair's role.  :cmaslol)

What a disappointment!  I like teams that treat each other with respect during the race.  It appeared the short dude was very condescending on several occasions.  While I missed half of two of the shows ... the Chips and the young couple were never shown being ugly to each other.

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.

Take a look at AR11, where Eric and Danielle won despite not winning a single leg before the finale. The same applies to AR18 where LaKisha and Jen never won any leg until the finale. Both were All-Star seasons.

Let's do some basic arithmetic regarding the number of teams that might qualify for the third AllStars season, which I expect to be around AR25. That means that the pool of talent would be from 6 seasons. 12 teams divided by 6 seasons is 2 teams per season! Also, it is entirely possible that some teams from the past (particularly Colin and Christie) will be asked to participate. I think it is a certainty that no team who has been on 2 seasons already will be selected for the 3rd All Star season.

So, what does this mean? Those who postulate this team or that team but in some cases 7 teams from AR21 are in for a nasty fall in my opinion.

Congratulations to the goat farmers. Poor Lexie, tired and frustrated. but hey you won several trips. At least each of the final 5 won at least 1 leg.
Wonder how Abbie or Ryan would have fared on the last task. Would James & Jaymes have won if they had not u-turned A & R? Possible. The final task too over 2 hours. Ouch.
It is funny how the Beekman's pretty much had last place until the very end.
Loved the show. Loved the enthusiasm of all (except the Beekman's), but they were nice.
I think the most boring winners were Dave & Rachel.

I don't think the twinnies were being homophobic against the Beekmans, the way the called them "Evil Gays" was very similar to how they called James & Jaymes the "Stupid Chippendales" and I loved how the girls admitted that they were never nice :lol: I would love to see the Twinnies back, since they were almost set to go to the finale, but were screwed by a local in the end. If I had to pick two All-Stars from this season, it'd be Twinnies (new Dustin & Kandice) and Abbie & Ryan (new Amanda & Kris). James & Abba would be deserving for a second chance, but the other two strike me as more interesting.

Well there needs to be 3 or 4 M/M teams and the only one after S18 that I think warrants discussion is Mark and Bopper.

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)
Where are you getting 4.25 from? I have 55/12=4.5833, which would make them the lowest average placing winners.
