Just as much as people dislike Dave & Connor playing the Cancer/Injury card,  I dislike that Brenchel plays the "gotta win the millions to have a baby"  )-** The begging of the cab driver to "win for our baby" is disgusting.  People have babies all the time without the million dollars.  (Unless you Uchenna and Joyce who were using it for fertility treatments)

That preview got me so excited!

 :colors

Looks like we know where the budget for the whole season went :lol:

So true!!!!

A night leg in Las Vegas is so cool, could be one of the best finales ever, unless Brenchel wins!!!!

Totally agree with you on that last part!  I might actually watch the finale since the photos look so cool!

 :hoot:  I agree, a night finale in Vegas looks exciting...... except for one thing.   :snicker:  I suspect the final run jump to the finish line looks to be a linear task.  No secret that the first team to the jump plane will eventually win the race, leaving the dramatic skydive anticlimactic (unless they have to tell the pilot where to fly).  :groan:  The editors have a major job trying to keep the finalists secret till they step land on the bath mat.   ;)  Hope they prove me wrong.  :ascared

I HATE linear legs but I think you are correct.

And we have had way too many this season. Linear Finales should be unacceptable,.... sigh.

I doubt I will believe in magic anymore if that's what gave Dave and Connor the lead to win in a linear leg. :funny: #justkidding

Last season was also linear. Tim & Marie had no way to catch up to Amy & Jason.

 ???  Assuming they used a local Vegas skydive company, the choices come down to these top three:

Las Vegas Skydiving Center

Vegas Extreme Skydiving

Sin City Skydiving

All three have blue parachutes, so can't really tell which one it is.  I'm leaning toward Las Vegas Skydiving Center, but that's just a guess.   ???

Edited to add: FWIW, Vegas Extreme Skydiving gives this info on their site:

"Vegas Extreme has hosted films, reality-based television programs and TV commercials, in addition to making the Top Twenty List on Things You Must Do Before You Die with the Fabulous Jubilee Showgirls. Also check-out the filming of the I Bet You season finale and the various travel shows."

Could the skydiving be a Roadblock then if only one team member per team is wearing a jumpsuit?

The Copperfield magic act is at the Mandalay Bay parking grounds (not garage). Refer to cap 18.

I'm thinking looking at those photos, that the landing spot won't be inside the stadium... it wouldn't make sense to have the waiting member of the team just standing there next to Phil at the Finish Line.

Do you think that teams skydive after the Magic RB?

Normally, they do not need any suit for sky diving, right? Based on previous Sky diving challenge.

So I agree that maybe that Jump suit is from the Magic RB because they need to do something with fire and escape.

Did CBS just spoil the winner?  :groan:

Look at the shoes of the team jumping from the helicopter, it matches Dave.

Dave and Connor are a decent good team.

A decent good team who whines about being old when they get beaten by other teams to the pit-stop, and praise themselves being overcomers again and again about their previous race injury and cancer issue when they excel.

Reminded me greatly of Art and JJ.

Also a very good father who taught his son how to laugh at Rachel on their way to Switzerland.
