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

Its not about not liking the winners. They didn't deserve to win. I am perfectly fine if a team wins that I didn't root for if they deserved to win, but if I see a team that didn't finish 1st or 2nd once besides the final leg, in addition to finishing last or second to last for every leg from leg 4 on, its not hard to put the pieces together that they didn't deserve to win.

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

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

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.
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!

Bangladesh, Turkey Indonesia were visited once.

Spain and France had locations never visited before

Shanghai/Moscow/Amsterdam yes recycled but what race doesn't

Still a good mix of a route even if not the best route imaginable.

Phil promises next season is going to be worth watching!

I am sure it will be good, however. Now that we know the countries visited.

Not one new country, and the same countries all over again. Thats a poor route. The winners were not deserving, and the teams were not interesting. The finale was good, I will give you that.

I will repeat once again. Just because your rooting interest won does not make it a good season.

I don't need to be told by anyone to switch to Survivor or anything like that. I didn't enjoy the season, it was boring, the teams were boring, the route was the same old route I have seen many times, and the winners were definitely not deserving. A bad season overall.

I don't need to be told by anyone that this is a bad season because your favourite team didn't win or anything like that. I enjoyed the season, it was exciting throughout, the teams were really competitive and there was a good mix of different personalities, the route was decent and some tasks were really MEMORABLE, and the winner will always be deserving. If you win, you win. A GREAT season overall.

There, see how perspectives can go. :cmas9

I completely agree. If you make it to the end, you deserve to win. Also, there is no requirement that you have to win a leg (other then the final one) to win the race. All you have to do is survive to the end. I am annoyed hearing people say oh they were saved by NEL too, NEL is just as much a part of the game as the U turn. Overall, I loved this season, was rooting for the Chips, but am very happy for the Beekmans.

I did not cheer for the Beekmans I was actually going for the twins so your idea is wrong

The amount of hate the twins are getting on their facebook page is crazy/

Haterz gunna hate. Like it or not, Brent and Josh won and whinging won't change that fact :)

It was one of the best finales we've had in a LONG time. The whole underdogs story was amazing and tbh, it's nice to see underdogs win instead of dominating teams who've won leg after leg after leg. This was WAY better than Rachel & Dave last season (sorry Prophet  :cmas19)

Sure the route was horrid, but it really wasn't as bad as you all make it out to be. The Russian, Turkish and Holland legs were quite impressive everything else wasn't that bad so that was alright :) This 2 hour episode definitely made up for what was lacking in the season though imo :D Not the worst season by far.

Kudos to Josh and Brent! :tup:

This season, though, is particularly boring for me. For one, I never cared it is the finale tonight. I'm always ecstatic during finale days, but I don't know, this time, I'm not.

Also, I took a quick rewatch of the intro of the teams this season. I realized this is a boring cast for me. Well, they were edited that way. I just quite like Trey/Lexi. I love Natalie/Nadiya. James/Abba were rootable, but not that much. hmmzzz for Josh/Brent. Amy/Daniel who? Caitlin/Brittany who? Rob/Sheila who? Gary/Will had a good intro, but they were horrible, especially as fans! Abbie/Ryan LOVE. Jaymes/James LOVE. Rob/Kelley were obnoxious, well Rob is.

I also blame the editing big time (for the last three seasons of TAR). I still want the TAR17 edit in music, and cinematography or stuff like that lol, which is EPIC EPIC EPIC.

No. The race was not bad JUST because the worst team won. It was NOT because of that. It was because there were only 4 good teams through the whole race and the route was AWFUL.

Shanghai, okay nice city, though wheres the culture? As far as I'm concerned that hole of a leg could have taken place in any chinatown in America. Indonesia, the tasks were alright, but very linear and I got bored watching despite how much of a great nation Indonesia is. Bangladesh. Awful awful awful. If they would have focused on creating good tasks instead of focusing on the poverty it would have been better. Natalie & Nadiya saved Bangladesh. Turkey was a decent leg, fine, but Turkey can do better. The Amazing Race Production can do better. Moscow for the nth time. The library task was quite boring but the only good thing about the episode was the Olympic swim coachh and the key task was linear. 2nd Russia was linear with the space between teams, and was decent but TAR could do better in Moscow, the leg seemed forced. Amsterdam was a good leg, probably the best in the season. Then Spain was awful. It was just awful and it just seems like everyone has gotten lazy, I mean not even a new country? They had so MANY opportunities and they just WASTED them. Even the new locations. France was alright  but detours were unbalanced and the RB Sucked, as well as placement orders. The finale was crap crap crap. The final task that took hours came down to luck.

So no, it was not crap because the team who got 2nd to last EVERY leg starting from Bangladesh. It was crap because of the route and the cherry on top was the worst team winning. Thank you.
I don't deserve the treatment that I'm getting

I LOVED this season! I really don't care if they go to new countries or not, if the tasks are inventive and the legs are competitive and exciting, it's a great season! Josh and Brent are the first winners I've rooted for since the beginning since Nat & Kat!

I loved the season because teams are what make up part of the entire season. I loved the teams this season and the cherry on top was a great final three with a great finale task and the entire outcome of the race was unexpected. Who would have expected James and Abba to lose their passports? Who would have expected Abbie and Ryan to be eliminated? Who would have expected Nadiya and Natalie to be eliminated? Who would have expected Josh and Brent to win?

Random race is random, but awesome. :xmas110

I don't give a damn about the tasks much, some tasks were lame and mediocre, but there were some really good ones.

This was actually one of my Favourite Final Threes ever on The Amazing Race (perhaps only topped by TAR3's and TAR18's Final Threes, and maybe TAR17's) because I actually liked all three teams. Was obviously cheering for Trexie, but I was fine with the Chips or the Beekmans winning.

But I do think it was an absolutely awful season. Only 16 and 19 were worse, in my opinion. However, the final leg was one of the best final legs in recent times.

I usually hate it when a team magically wins the last leg despite winning none before. USUALLY is the key word.

Before the finale, I did not want the goat farmers to win. Like other people were saying, I did not believe they deserved to win based on their past performance.
But I started to root for them when the twinnies were talkign smack about them on the train. I always feel so bad for teams who are mistreated for doing nothing wrong. You should never accuse someone of not wanting it more. Then they argued with the twinnies :cmas22. That was clever arguing to distract them from the actual task. Great job Goat Farmers, use your brains to get yourselves ahead. To top it all off, they were able to get 3rd in such an exciting finish.

Leg 12 begins, I doubted they would win due to the hometown curse. What I loved about this finale is that the editing did not reveal who won. Each of the final 3 got equal edits. I was so happy for them to finish that final task. AND THEN WIN!!!!

They had so much against them: delayed flights, being forced to do the synchronied swimming, people who hated thme and would do anything to get rid of them (TWINNIES :cmas12), that I do think that, despite their lackluster rankings, they did deserve to win. I was not a fan of you guys before this evening, but now, GREAT JOB AND GOOD LUCK WITH THE FARM!
