Japan leg was great, Alaska was horribly linear... :cmas11

There were too many elements that required an equal amount of time per team - the teams had no way of shedding or losing time when transporting thru helicopters and they were being directed to places for most of it.

Yeah, exactly. And there was no chance to catch up in any of the tasks, except the currency, but that itself would require somebody to majorly screw up.

And the airplane throwing task destroyed the whole leg - I hate these pointless tasks that basically ensure that a certain team wins once it is over. -_-

I actually wish that either they stop with those Roadblocks, or don't even put any Roadblocks in the finale unless it's a memory one.

I think it's time they turn things around and throw in a ton of Route Info additional tasks and include a BALANCED Detour. Something new!

What I found really hilarious was it said "ALL TIME FAVOURITES" and shows a picture of Art & JJ LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL. They have a sense of humour don't they? :cmas12

Completely agree with you!

Plus these days everyone is prepared for memory challenges, so those don't offer up as much chance for the order to be shuffled unless it is really well planned like TAR21, so the suspense is taken out of them. :(

Haha. And I don't even recall seeing that many "ALL-TIME FAVORITES" in the promo. Even the ones who aren't actually in the season

YAY JAMY WON! I actually picked a winning team from the beginning...  :cmas51

I really like the Tokyo leg, WAAAAY better than the Alaska leg...

Tim and Marie DESERVED to win the that leg... Period!
Marie KILLED that Roadblock ...
When I was watching her finish the Roadblock first, I literally jumped off my chair and said "HOLY SHIT!!! What the....Damn!! The bitch is goooooooooood!" yeah with that many O's
So anyone who hated Marie's gut could just shove it up their ass and leave the goddess alone!
And it was so funny how she literally passed Amy and Nicole who...like, hey ladies! the task is called a "Roadblock".
I kinda wish Afghanimals actually got their side right so they could live Amy and Nicole fighting for last. LOL wouldn't that be funny, they helped each other and all of sudden they were fighting for last.

The Alaska leg, Idk. It was too linear. Almost legs in US were linear. It was kinda sucked and disappointing.
Amy basically got lucky in the Roadblock, they had a decent lead, and they won...
Just like last season...
The currency challenge, boy did I not see that coming...
This could actually be a turning event for any other teams to catch Jamy but they will need Jamy to screw up SO BAD --maybe Jamy got hit on the head with one of the tubes and suffer a major memory loss and forget that they just ran the amazing race-- or something like that, so that they could catch up.
Also it was more like a puzzle challenge rather than currency challenge.
If they are to make a memory task, they need to make sure its fundamental is memory, not just some puzzles even my little sister could assemble. So teams who didn't remember or who didn't take a note would actually get stuck. Last season had a better memory challenge. And it wasn't even that good.

Overall, the season is okay. To be quite honest, I kinda liked previous season better than this one. But this season was not exactly bad. Some of the legs were worth watching. Gdansk and Tokyo are awesome. Lisbon and Bandung I are great. Bandung II and Norway are not so bad either.

Jamy winning is amazing. Their Karma theory paid off in their favor. Helping Nicole turned out to be their biggest and best move during the race.

Tim and Marie should give their romantic relationship another shot, like is it just me but these two are totally made for each other. Their little story about how they got into the show is cute. And Marie finally said she loved Tim. LOL. I don't know exactly on what term but carry on...

Nicole and Travis, good luck with the kids...

Lookin' forward to next season ...wait do I? since I already know the teams and it was just  .. Meh!

Really happy for the Timarie Tracole loss.  :cmas9 :cmas9 :cmas9

Of the final 4, only Jamy didn't turn my stomach for their attitude and behaviours.  Afghanimals were nasty, Travis turned extremely ugly and emotional abusive to Nicole, and I just plain wanted to snatch Marie bald with her sense of entitlement.

Now on to the "All Time Favs" lol    (GO BRENCHAL)

Haven't had the chance to watch the Tokyo leg yet.

Anyways, I actually like the Juneau leg and the memory challenge was great as well! :cmas27

Who would have guessed currency as the final task, when it's been an obvious possibility since the first season?

I thought someone on here speculated that the currency might play a role in the finale back when they got the coins that they used to unlock the cars.  I could be wrong and don't have the time to look.  If I'm right; then, you know who you are.  Take the credit you deserve.  :)

Good job! I was totally blind with that. I never expected that the currency would be their final challenge. I thought since it was Alaska there won't be any of this sorta challenge...

Perhaps it is just me, but the throwing flour from the plane was not linear, and I actually loved it.  I just wished they showed a chart of where each of the contestants' bags fell.

Jamy were absolutely intolerable during the finale, sorry, they were just irritating with their OTT-self-righteous attitude - they claim, "they are one of the best teams to ever run the Race." With 6 2nd place finishes? Um, I don't think so - Rachel and Dave/Meghan and Cheyne/Nick and Starr are all calling...! Even Nicole and Travis technically could claim they were better (despite their meltdown from Indo onwards) as they never left the Top 4 once during the whole Race
