Hawaii get ready,  we have 3 teams coming from Japan, who are always on the hunt for a Red and yellow route marker and a clue. Please have couple of Jetskis , surf boards and paddles ready so that they can get to some exotic place where one the of team is  going to win a million dollars , if they read all the clues and complete all the tasks. The best reality show finale ever (if CBS is telling the truth) is about to start!!!!!

Brachel is a disgusting couple who have no respect for one another. Also he cheated on her. They need to try to get a careers instead of appearing on reality shows for the past three seasons.

What's next they going to do Survivor? No thanks.

Previously on The Amazing Race...

11 teams began a race around the world. They soared over Salta (skydiving), experienced agony in Asuncion. Bewildered in Baku (oil) and taken aback by Tanzania (animals). 6 teams were eliminated.

Bopper and Mark finished just shy of the final 4. :(

Davechel and Art & JJ had an alliance. Vanessa & Ralph and Brenchel fought. Davechel and Art & JJ's alliance failed because of a U-Turn.

Davechel won a lot of legs, but argued a lot. Vanessa & Ralph somehow made it into the final 4. :lol: Art & JJ are annoying and made it into the final 4. Oh my. Montage of Rachel drama. :lol: Brenchel made it into the final 4.

One of these 4 teams will win The Amazing Race.

I like Bopper & Mark, but I don't like it when an eliminated team gets a special thing in the season recap. Also, that pretty much summed up why I dislike Rachel.

Rachel & Dave depart first at 1:51 PM. Fly to Hiroshima, Japan. Then proceed Miyajima Island. Dave thinks his relationship with Rachel is more important than a million dollars. Dave doesn't view Rachel as his wive... he views her as his equal. Rachel then proceeds to interrupt him by saying soldier. :lol3:

All teams are on the same flight.

Art & JJ are afraid of getting eliminated. Vanessa's ankle isn't so great.

Art & JJ don't want Brenchel to get on the same bus. Art & JJ start whining about Brenchel. Art & JJ and Vanessa & Ralph keep telling the bus driver to go. The bus leaves and Brenchel are on the next bus. They start arguing with each other.

Travel by bullet train to Osaka. When they arrive, proceed to TV 8 Studio. All teams get on the bullet train.

Both Rachels decide to go by subway because they think traffic might be bad. Art & JJ and Vanessa & Ralph decided to take a taxi.

Roadblock. Art & JJ reach the roadblock first. Japanese game show again! <3333333333

BRING THAT CHICKEN HOME GAME. :lol: Art is doing the roadblock. omg this is great.

JJ: He looks ridiculous so that makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Roadblock: Sprinting on a giant running track, people have to get 3 chicken hanging by the ceiling. :lol: :lol: :lol:

This is so ridiculous but I can't stop laughing. :-[

Art gets all his 3 chicken, but he can't jump onto the final platform. He keeps tripping on the treadmill. :lol3: This is actually just so funny.

The Rachels are working together! They all get a taxi.

Vanessa & Ralph are lost. They're running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Hm. Nice joke right there. :lol: They get a taxi to take them to the right place.

Art & JJ are out of the roadblock in 1st. Proceed to the Umeda Sky Building. Then they have to touch this Windows 7 touchscreen... tablet-things for their next clue.

Vanessa has to do the roadblock. Brendon has to do the roadblock. Rachel (of Dave & Rachel) does the roadblock. Vanessa's ankle is going to give her problems.

Brendon: 1/3
Brendon: 2/3

Vanessa's ankle is giving her lots of trouble.

Rachel: 1/3

Brendon: 3/3. Now he has to jump onto the last platform.

Rachel can't jump high enough... Well, now she did. Rachel: 2/3

Brenchel are out of the roadblock in 2nd and Davechel are out of the roadblock next. Vanessa is struggling. She has 1 chicken.

Post by: Polaroid on May 06, 2012, 07:40:54 PM
Vanessa didn't want to quit because she didn't want to disappoint Ralph. Vanessa continues doing the roadblock. She has 2 chicken... She's determined to get it. She's screaming. This is so hard to watch. She has all 3 chicken, but now she has to reach the platform.

Art & JJ have reached the floating garden observatory. Detour! Bingo Shoutout vs Photo Cut-Out.

Bingo Shutout: Pick up sushi and put it on a Bingo sheet. They have to match the sushi? Once it's 5 in a row, they have to eat it.

Photo Cut-Out: Get people to pose for photos with sumo cut-outs. They have to get 10 cut-outs.

Art & JJ do the sushi.

Brenchel and Davechel are looking on the wrong floor for the detour clue.

Vanessa is determined to finish. She steps on the platform, but then she falls off. It doesn't count? That's a bit ridiculous. She has to do it again, and she finishes. Ralph & Vanessa are out of the roadblock in last. And then Vanessa starts putting on eyelashes in the taxi. :lol:

Davechel pick photo. Brenchel pick sushi. Dave's bag is falling apart. He thinks Rachel unzipped his bag. Rachel is mad because she didn't. Rachel is mad because Dave doesn't think she tries, and he thinks she unzipped his bag. Yikes. Argument.

Vanessa & Ralph have basically caught up to Brenchel and Davechel. Brenchel and Davechel get cabs. Vanessa & Ralph pick sushi.

The thing about getting crowds in Japan is that the more people doing it, the easier it is to get others.  Doesn't matter how boring it is (for example 4 of us traveling in Asakusa were "marvelling" at this guy doing Spiralgraph and after 10 minutes there was a crowd of 20 or so huddled about us).

Art & JJ got BINGO and now they stuff all the sushi in their mouth. They're off to the pit stop.

Vanessa & Ralph have arrived at the sushi. Rachel is stressing out at Brendon. Rachel's being really intense right now.

Davechel are team #1. Even after arguing so much. :stare They've tied the record for most wins with 7 wins. They've won a trip to New Zealand.

Art & JJ are team #2. "Good hiding place, Phil." :lol: Art gives Phil a HUGE hug. Art & JJ are sure they're going to win.

It's between Brenchel and Vanessa & Ralph. "Come on Brendon!"

Brendon & Rachel are team #3. Rachel does her signature hug on Brendon. :lol: They think they're the underdogs because they haven't won any legs.

Vanessa & Ralph are the last team to arrive. They've been eliminated from the race. Phil tells Vanessa she should be proud. Ralph gets emotional over Vanessa's effort today. Uhhh... their end comments are kind of awkward because they're no longer together? :stare

Most Reality Champs. . .I doubt anyone will play as great as Rob & Amber did; however for Brendon and Rachel to accomplish what they have deserves some merit despite the hate that gets directed their way.  You can make the argument that BB was handed to her (or at least she got a great wind at her back), but certainly not here.  They should be proud regardless of what happens.

All teams are running out. Brenchel are the only one with their bags. Davechel get the first taxi. Art & JJ get the next cab. Brenchel get the last cab. Davechel's cab driver knows the clue so they know where to go. Brenchel's cab driver finds out where to go. Art & JJ are following Davechel. Who is following now? :stare

Dave figures out his taxi driver is a veteran and tells him to lose Art & JJ. Art & JJ are now lost.

Davechel reach the clue first. They have to ascend and rappel the towers. Once at the top, they have to find a flag for their next destination. Brenchel arrive at the towers shortly after. They beat Art & JJ. Both Rachels are happy with each other winning (as long as it's not Art & JJ)!

Davechel have reached the top and they found the large red and yellow banner. Dave traces streets to get to the flag.

Art & JJ got directed to statues instead of the towers. :lol: :lol: :lol: They're so lost! I love it!

Gotta love The Amazing Race! What other TV show -reality or scripted - would visit such memorials as the Senegal slave-selling portal with descendants of slaves (Uchenna and Joyce); a WWII extermination camp, with racers whose people survived another 20th century genocide attempt (Charla & Mirna, Armenians in Turkey, WWI) and now Hiroshima with a US military officer (Dave) and a PhD student who's studying radiation for healing purposes (Brendon)?

No other reality show has ever dared get as real...the closest Survivor ever got was China and a South Seas island with a sunken military ship on its coastline.  Although 2 of the NY-based cop shows referenced 9-11 (CS NY, and Blue Bloods), but still, nothing beats the pathos and lessons of REAL connections to abominations, some of which were committed by the US and/or consortium of countries involved in the slave trade!

GO TAR!!!!!

Art & JJ ask someone and they figure out the riddle refers to the towers. They're off to the towers.

Rachel R is telling her to not look down.

Dave: It's always a little bit concerning stepping off a 45 story building. :lol:

Rachel B: "Honey, you look like my superhero!" :hrt:

Brenchel find the flag, but they don't know how to get there. Rachel says they have 50% odds, and she likes those odds.

Dave instructs his taxi driver of the park with the flag.

I haven't heard Davechel say anything negative about Brenchel, so it's unsurprising they'd both (the women at least) would feel ok about each other winning.

As for who comes in First, I'd laugh if it didn't matter and they still won.

Brendon was sliding down the building because he lost his footing. :ascared

JJ doesn't like heights. :lol: Art & JJ begin their ascend.

Brenchel finished their descend. They tell their driver to go to Sand Island.

Davechel have found the cluebox. Roadblock! Teams have to shave ice using a samarai sword. They have to shave enough ice to fill up a container. Dave does the roadblock.

Brenchel arrive at the roadblock. Brendon does the roadblock. Brenchel and Davechel are up for a fight for a million. They say it's a 50% chance. Both Rachels see Art & JJ descending down the tower.

Dave finishes the roadblock. Make your way on foot to helicopters. Davechel almost go by taxi to the baseball field, but they go on foot.

Art & JJ arrive at the roadblock. They ignore Rachel. :lol:

Beautiful scenery for the helicopter ride! :hrt:

RFF is being really slow for me right now. Hmph.

Brendon doesn't want crazy Rachel. Doesn't look good for them right now.

Davechel get the next clue. They have to rescue a swimmer. One person is on a... thing that I don't know the name of and the other person is on a sled. The person on the sled has to rescue a swimmer and then they have to take them back to shore.

Dave is on the sled while Rachel is driving.

Brenchel have reached back to the park. Brendon wants to jog, but Rachel is too tired. They're literally shouting at each other. This is insane. Brendon wants to quit, and Rachel gets pissed off at that. And then they start a screamfest.

Brendon: "WHY DON'T YOU STOP AND RUN... to the helicopter with me?" :lol:

Davechel finished the rescue mission. Proceed to the Coral Kingdom Gate.

Art & JJ begin the rescue mission.

Art gets his distressed swimmer and they're made it to shore. They're off to the Coral Kingdom Gate.

Brenchel started their rescue mission.

Davechel and Art & JJ both can't find the gate? Art & JJ have found it and now they're following the path.

OH NO. NOOOOOOOOOOOO. Davechel just magically stumbled upon the paddleboats. They're paddling to the finish line? :groan: :groan: :groan:

Art & JJ reached their next clue. The other person has to do the roadblock now. They have to ride down a huge hill across a line under a warrior sled? Then teams have to roll a lava rock into a goal. Art is doing the roadblock.

Art still can't get down the hill! OH MY GOSH I'M LOVING THIS DRAMA. THIS IS AMAZING.

It was an awesome season. Idk how it could have been better. WRP excelled at the route and tasks in each episode (except Azerbaijan) and the casting was one of the all time classics, right up there with TAR14, 6, and 5!!

Brendon & Rachel <3 .  Though they didn't win, I'm happy they were able to finish the race!  I would have loved to have seen them beat all of their haters *cough* Art & JJ *cough*.  I also loved how some of the teams high-fived Brendon & Rachel at the finish line!   :hearts:  They seemed genuinely happy to see them finish and it seemed like it uplifted their spirits, despite finishing third!!!

I am impressed with R&D for not freaking out after their first visit to the finish line, and getting right back to the business of RAAAACING!  The other Rachel would have probably imploded on the spot if that had happened to her.

Well, each team had one significant mess up: A&J deciding to be "followers" (hehe) out of the airport, R&B with the random trip to Aloha Stadium (um, and only then do they really read the clue), and then R&D stumbling upon the finish line (it's like they were pulled in by a "winner" magnet).

If the final task has anything to do with a map puzzle, flags etc. I will definitely win! (unless someone else of equal knowledge is there as well :lol:)

You are ON! Let's duel!!!  (I'm a geography freak too! I can get 100% correct from memory - no prompts - for Europe, North America and South America, plus the Atlantic Ocean islands, 90% 1st go-round for Asia, 80% for Africa and Oceania and the Indian Ocean islands.)

So get ready......start memorizing....apply AGAIN!  See ya there!

Nice to know! :lol: But I can't apply considering I am not American  :'(

Regarding the tasks of the final leg: I felt that the climbing and rappelling was the best finale task in a few seasons. And the tasks that weren't as epic were still really good and relevant to the area.

my thoughts on the episode:

- I'm glad they paid respects in Hiroshima
- the RB was funny but I feel SO bad for Vanessa, she looked like she was in so much pain! But she's a trooper for pulling through
- i would LOVE to play sushi bingo!
- great final leg, tasks were well balanced out, climbing the towers was an AWESOME route info, and I'm happy with the finish order regardless of who made it into the F3

and i think this is the first time i am COMPLETELY satisfied after watch a season of TAR  :conf:
the locations, challenges, teams
and even though i didn't favour the boot order, i was happy with the winners  :)

here's to a great season, and awesome work to all the RFFers who helped spoilers  :ghug:

so PUMPED for TAR21  :wohoo:

Is it just me, or does everyone feel satisfied with the season? I haven't felt that way with TAR in awhile

It was an awesome season. Idk how it could have been better. WRP excelled at the route and tasks in each episode (except Azerbaijan) and the casting was one of the all time classics, right up there with TAR14, 6, and 5!!

I'm more or less with Prophet. This was very close to an epic season. However, the ones I have in mind as better are AR7 and AR2. It easily outdistances every other Amazing Race after AR7.

Wooooowwwww! Phil was quoted as saying that Rachel of Dave & Rachel was his personal MVP for the race - for being highly competent, even-keeled and all that! She was outstanding in both Osaka and the final roadblock.

You got that right!! She is one of the all time racers, comparable to Gary and Cord in both skill and loveability!

Again, right church, wrong pew, Prophet. I agree that Rachel Brown was truly outstanding. I see that as putting him in a class with Zach (AR3; how could anyone forget him), Colin (AR5), Rob (AR7, very sneaky and using his fame to the max, but very effective) and Victor (AR14). Gary and Cord were very good but not in the same league as these.

So who do we pair Rachel with for allstars? This season's Brendan or 2nd Chance's Captain America himself  (Gary)!

Hey...if they split up two pairs to put one new pair in for 2nd Chances, they can give Rachel a more appreciative partner!

The one time World Race Productions allowed an assembled team the results were OK for Eric and Danielle but disastrous for viewers. It won't ever happen again, as CBS and WRP learned their lesson.

Absolute BEST final roadblock - mentel OR phsyical! The map of the world used in TAR Family Edition! Won by that father of three girls! I want that roadblock on my season of TAR!
You were thinking of the Branson Family (my mistake on this has been corrected thanks to some helpful comments), but as someone above has pointed out it was the Linz Family that actually won the map challenge and AR8. I do want to bring something to your attention, the ages of the Branson sisters:
Lindsay, 20 when AR8 was run
Lauren 22
Elizabeth 25

Does that qualify them as "girls"? I don't think so.

I do agree that the map challenge was the best final leg mental challenge ROADBLOCK except possibly the AR12 scales/items.

He said Father of the Three girls, referring to Wally Branson. Yes, they're girls.

Pretty sure he meant the Bransen family (Wally and the 3 daughters) as the Godlewski sisters did not make the final 3.

I'm always loath to try and rank seasons, and I won't do it now, but I do agree that insofar as the route, tasks, and the course construction by WRP in general this was one of the best seasons since the early era of TAR (generally those seasons where the fast forward was not limited in its availability).
It has that feel to it the entire season, and the task designers did a really good job in making the tasks non-generic and difficult, thus forcing many teams to think through their choices.
Casting is a flavor of the month sort of thing, what some people like about some casts may be the reason why others don't like the same cast from the same season. But what we can comment on is how teams are edited. I've never been a fan of the editing as heroes or as villains in some seasons; I don't like the editors trying to force an opinion on me about the teams, and I've always been more partial to teams who competed well, and earned their way into the final legs; and I also like to recognize good teams who run into terrible luck.
By that standard I am grateful that the editors seemed to have mostly stepped away from that cartooning of teams this season, although I think they did pour it on a little too much with Mark-Bopper and Rachel Reilly-Vanessa, when we and they didn't need to do so. Otherwise, this was a quite competent cast, and it was a change to see a boot order that almost paralleled the average placement performances of the teams. The consistency of the teams after the second leg to the end of the Race was really unusual, but it's nice to know that it is possible to have teams sort themselves out by their own competence. So on that basis, I am pleased with the fact that the best three teams were the final three, and that Rachel-Dave got the opportunity to show how good as Racers they are by making an unprecedented mistake (although inadvertent) and still recover from it to win. As I alluded to in a post last night; while they are the first team to win eight legs (67% by a different measure), and the best performing winners ever, they still didn't quite catch Eric-Jeremy's record in TAR 9 for the best performing team placement average. (The difference -- Rachel-Dave's 6th place finish on leg 3; whereas Eric-Jeremy only had one finish as low as 4th their entire season.) But they deserve kudos for working through their circumstances and re-discovering how to really work together as a team, and for their consistency; not to mention setting that record of being the only team to finish a leg without finishing a task and without being eliminated. A very remarkable team; no doubt about it.
I was never surprised by Rachel Reilly's meltdowns over the course of this season; after watching her do this during the last two seasons of Big Brother, I would have been surprised had it been any other way. But kudos to her and Brendon for realizing what it is for what it is, and working beyond it, and those two, after all of the challenges they've imposed on themselves in the last two years in the eye of the camera, have certainly earned respect for being able to handle each other. It certainly is a better outcome than some other male-female teams that endured meltdowns and that did not survive over the long term.

Good post theschnauzers.....for a comparison on winning percentage.

Rachel/Dave         67%
Nick/Starr            64%
Megan/Cheyne     58%
Andy/Tommy       50%
Colin/Christie       46%

I'm curious how others perceived this:  The first part of the Finale seemed really odd camera-wise, like they all of a sudden had a bunch of amatuers running the cameras.  The camera on the floor of the train station when D/R got left behind looked like it had been set down, but left on, and they liked the argument and decided to use it.  In addition, a lot of the shots were looking up into the faces of the racers like the camera was being held in one hand at the cameraman's side, like he was carrying a suitcase instead of a camera.

The camera people could have been using helmet cameras in those instances.

I would have liked this season better if the team that turned back lost because of it.

I was hoping Art/JJ makes the mistake and gets passed by the other two teams. All the drama of the Finish Line was built up for less.

Zev and Justin / Jet and Cord didn't dominate...

They won 4 legs each. Only. You can like , win the first 4 legs and be eliminated on the other , so isn't domination , both came in last in their seasons , Zev and Justin were moving up and down all the time (except for sydney , kolkata , varanasi)
