Velina not winning </3
But, congrats to the Tims! :conf:

Who knew that the memory challenge would determine the winners of the Race?
Definitely, by doing the memory challenge the fastest, they deserved the win! :hrt:
I'm a mystery you will never find out about.

Still shocked with the finale - not in a good way...
When Celina screwed up, I thought, well at least the Mitics were going to win and I really liked them too. But then.... :crazy:
Congrats for the Tims though  :)
Anyway the finale was so intense, lead kept changing and changing..

I re-watched the show. At the very end they show Celina getting her clue at the Evergreen Brickworks memory challenge. (they never showed this after Cory got his). The board was in the background and you could see it wasn't complete. So the Tims had won before she was done there.

It sounds like it was a good episode. :tup:

I don't know if I can bear to watch it though. Might be less painful to listen to nails on a chalkboard.

I love that the Tims won it. And won it based on their observation skills. It was funny, Celina wanting to take a penalty on the final task.

Just saw the finale, and it was just unbelievable.

First off, a leg with 2 needle in the haystack challenges in the final leg. I don't recall if the US edition ever had this type of challenge in the final leg.

Also, the Cadbury factory... I could not help but think of the task as finding the golden ticket and then show it to Willy Wonka. I was also thinking the Oompa Loompas were going to appear.  :) Also, I would have been very tempted to take at least a bite of that chocolate. It looked like a lot of chocolate going to waste.

Not often we get a 3-team race in the finale, as there is usually that one team falling behind and no shot to catch up. It was looking that way here, with the Tims walking everywhere at the zoo, and finding the clue long after the other 2 teams left.

But congrats to Tim Sr and Tim Jr, for winning The Amazing Race Canada, and being the first parent/child team to do so. Admittingly, I did not care much for them, but have to say, they probably made the greatest comeback ever in TAR. I mean, how often does a team in distant 3rd, come back and win the race? I'm thinking... never! And only 2 tries at the memory task, while the other teams had a double-digit amount of tries and still not even come close. So extra kudos for Tim Sr, for the memory task and overcoming his Parkinson's.

Still, Jody & Cory and Vanessa & Celina had very nice runs in the race. I thought the brothers were going to win, while I was rooting for the sisters.

I did enjoy this version of the race, and getting to see more of Canada. And hope to visit the places featured there someday, but unfortunately, it's just so damn expensive to travel there, which is too bad!

Just my thoughts about the finale.

Celina & her sister didn't win.  :gaah:
Celina & her sister didn't win  :gaah: :gaah:
& Celina & her sister didn't win.   :gaah: :gaah: :gaah:

OK my thoughts are done.


Also, Nothing against the Tims. Even if Celina & Vanessa or the brothers had won.
My problem with the way the show ended was the fact that to get to the final pitstop depended on a scheduled ferry ride.

What if either the brothers or sisters had gotten to the docks say 3 minutes after that 1st ferry left. If it was me, I'd be fuming.
To me it's basically saying: OK, 3 teams, first one to jump two times wins. But wait there's a catch, whoever jumps 1st has a 30min head start. 

The ferry leaves 30 minutes apart & takes what? 15 minutes to get over.
The Tims could have gotten off the ferry, ran on over to the start of the finish line, sat down watched a 22min episode of a program, then just leisurely strolled onto the map & still would have won. With time to spare.

I've never seen a finale like that before. I've seen teams use taxis, cars, bicycles, kayaks (I believe) & from Norway 1 that zip line down the ski hill. But none of those ways to the final pit stop were on a timed schedule.

For a first series with only 10 eps. I don't think they needed the Double Xpress pass or the Double U-Turn (x2)

Other than that it was an OK version of the show.
My personal taste, It sure isn't no Israel or Ukraine. 
& I'd place it down there with Vietnam (Which is my least favorite out of them all)

I'll watch the second series, I just hope they race outside of Canada.

Actually I think the ferry to the pit stop was a genius move by the producers. The key is that the ferry has a timetable and doesn't just wait around for the first team. I can think of three different scenarios:
  • The first team has a big lead and is the only one which catches the first ferry. In this case they will win and the ending will not be exciting. But it wouldn't have been more exciting if the ferry had not been present since they had a big enough lead. This is what actually happened.
  • If the first team has a small enough lead the ferry could allow the second team, and possible the third as well, to catch up. This would lead to a very exciting footrace to the pit stop.
  • The first team has a very small lead but arrives just as the ferry is about to leave. In this case I think that if team #2 is close enough so that it would have been a footrace (less than 30 seconds), then the ferry staff will see them and wait. Leading to an exciting footrace

So the producers were cleverly trying to maximize the chances of an exciting footrace to the finish line. Personally I don't like it because I feel that it is unfair to the team which have managed to get a lead.

My thoughts regarding the finale.
  • I don't like luck-based tasks at all, and even less in the finale. Thus I did not like the chocolate task.
  • Perhaps more surprisingly I have no problem with the finding the clue at the zoo task since the difficulty is exactly the same for each team.
  • I liked the fact that all three teams managed to be in the lead at different times during the final episode.
  • I understand that the producers want an epic looking task in the final. But, and this is true for all seasons, the three teams which make the final are so motivated that they will not balk at a scary task. So in this finale the descending challenge looked cool but didn't really affect the standings
  • The final memory task was extremely difficult if you didn't know the flowers. There were a lot of unknowns and possible combinations.
  • The Tims really did deserve to win after their performance at the memory task

All I got to say if this... if a team can't beat a team with Parkinson on a memory challenge and outrace a team that is on artificial legs, they don't deserve to win the race.
