They said that when they got to the Helicopter / Skydive Task, Caroline got ready faster than David, and actually saw the Clue before him, but she wasn't allowed to jump first because David & Connor got to the Clue Box first??

I assumed the 'clue' mentioned here was the Roadblock clue, not the billboard clue. So which one was it?

Tasks like this require safety briefings. ALL teams must go thru the safety briefings, my guess is this is a production effort to not let a safety/mechanical requirement affect the placements.

Antagonization of Brendon & Rachel
Placing Dave & Connor on a pedestal
Dissolution of the RB split
Visiting 4 countries in 8 legs
Mediocre and unfair leg structures
Disappearance of the much anticipated memory challenge at the finale

Why did this season even happen? :res:

I agree with you, It wasn't a good "All Stars" Season at all, if it was a regular newbies season I wouldn't really have a problem with the route and challenges but it just wasn't worthy to be called "All Stars". If anything let's hope they have learnt from their mistakes with thi season.

Strongly agree with everything above. The sad truth of the season. :(

I'm mostly disappointed by lack of memory challenge, really easy tasks most of the legs, dissolution of the RB split (this really makes me angry ... especially that Dave and Connor are the only ones who didn't do the same amount of rb ...) . I kind of get that most of the legs were changed last minute but still, they were really disappointing ...
I hope next season is a lot better ...

From what I understood it was the Billboard Clue that she seen first, but apparently she wasn't allowed to jump until Dave had spotted the clue and jumped because of him and Conner reaching the cluebox outside the Maverick Helicopters building before Country did.  :groan:

Even if I don't want country to win, if Caroline found the finish line location 1st, but wasn't allowed to jump 1st, it is really unfair. :( This season has too many flaws. If this were a non-all-star season, but the route for the first 8 legs is the same, the unbalanced roadblock count exists, and the unfair finish line bungee jump happening, this season still wouldn't be good.
In other words: newbie season = bad; all-star season = the worst season. :(

I really hate to say it because I love seeing teams return, but Oh GOD, How I NEVER want to see another All Stars again! I just want Mark & Bopper and Gary & Mallory one last time though?  ???  :lol:
