For the Las Vegas finale Leg, it doesn't seem likely teams  will be driven anywhere out of the Las Vegas casino area since traffic is pretty heavy going towards Boulder City and Enterprise/Paradise, plus it's filmed during the night.

Taking the zero live sightings, nighttime, and highway traffic into consideration, could the finish line be located on the rooftop of a skyscraper/hotel? Purely spec.

Or a racetrack near the Strip.

Unless you want to count go-kart places, the LV Motor Speedway is the only racetrack in the Las Vegas metro area (in the outskirts of Sunrise Manor). I'm not sure if they'd go that far out of the main city during the night.

Unless the racetrack is in construction.
Or in Stratosphere tower rooftop.

There is also Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  It has lights and is, sort of, out of the way...

OMG, I'm finally right...

Not sure the best place for this, but I'll just post it here.

I don't think anyone else mentioned this, but CaroJen had a podcast interview on the Bobby Bones Show, and during it they say something very very controversial! And if it's true I'll be insanely pissed!  (:;)

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??

If this is true, then I have to say, CBS, YOU HAVE ACTUALLY FIXED THE RACE!!!!  :groan:   :'(
I'm not a happy person today!  (:;)

We'll know more soon...

"Bobby said he will have to bring in Caroline from The Amazing Race to talk about her loss. Everyone is still hung up on it and want to know the secrets that we donít get to see on the show."

Before this joke of a race (it doesn't even deserve to be capitalized now), teams have numbers to pull or sheets to sign up to determine the helicopters, flights, task order, but CBS, WRP, TAR would do anything for their little angels Dave & Connor to win. :res:

Before the Race???  :o
I never knew that, I would've assumed that the order was determined by those numbers they have attached to the clue boxes?   ???
And in cases such as this, the order would be determined simply by the person to see the sign first, gets to jump first!!!!  :groan:

The one who got the clue first would get the helicopter first. The one who got the answer first would jump first.
Dave and Conner got the clue first so of course, Dave would be in the helicopter first even if he take some minutes more to wear those jumpsuit.
About the second one, I wonder how Caroline know that she got the answer before Dave?

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:
