THE TAR 21 FINALE PITSTOP

will be at

GOTHAM HALL!



(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2021/FINALE/Gotham%20Hall/GothamHallnight.jpg)


Located at 1356 Broadway@ 36th Street, Gotham Hall is part of the Haier America Corporate headquarters, it was originally the Greenwich Bank Building.

"The Greenwich Bank Building was constructed in 1922-1924 and designed by Edward Palmer York and Philip Sawyer. The space was previously occupied by the two-story Sheridan building before York & Sawyer designed the six-story building, with basement, that stands today.

Identified as one of the most refined examples of York & Sawyer bank buildings by The Landmark's Preservation Commission, the three facades are one of the finest examples of classical architecture. This ancient Roman style encompasses a rusticated podium, monumental Corinthian colonnade and high attic. The challenge of this building is the irregular quadrilateral created by Broadway's diagonal axis and the gentle downward slope from 6th Avenue to Broadway. The three facades are skillfully composed, obscuring these inequalities.

Upon arrival, the main entrance has two four-panel double bronze doors, which lead you into the 52,000 square foot interior. The exterior is clad with Indiana limestone above a polished pink granite base. Every evening, the grandeur of the building's stunning architecture is illuminated with showers of blue light."

I think Lexi has incorrectly put Tot Ziens and Zai Jian under the Bangladeshi flag. The words under the Chinese and Indonesian flags should also be wrong. Beekman will probably do better at this, but I'm not sure about the Chips.

It think it reads Amazing Houdini, with three placards for three teams. So...maybe the Chips were scanning the area in our previous photo, then they found this billboard and rush off to the Navy Yard.

Agree with you with the recent finales, DrRox; but the problem this season is that we already had 11 RB performed along the race.  Here's the list, leg by leg:

1.  Tennis table and Fallopian Tubes.
2.  Balloons.
3.  Serve lunch at restaurant.
4.  Repair bus.
5.  Build a scale.
6.  Sell in the Grand Bazaar.
7.  Unlock the locks.
8.  Time zone puzzle.
9.  Switchback
10.  Tennis at Manacor.

The thing is we already have two more legs upcoming, and only 1 RB to perform.  Unless they change the rules and teams have to face 14 RBs instead of 12, what would allow a 7-7 count in the last leg with a double RB.

It looks like the final memory challenge has the "Hello" and "Goodbye" we expected.  They have to raise banners with the correct "Hello" and "Goodbye" to match the country's flag flying at the top.

There is a US flag that may already have the banners in place as an example.

There is also a Mexican flag in the shot so that means that there are phony route countries in place to foil the Racers.

How about cap 17 from the bungee jump task? That is clearly not trey because trey is wearing a bandana in his hair and his straight jacket has a yellow line around the neck whereas cap 17 (possible Beekman) has a green line.

Josh still works on Wall Street. He has for about 15 years. The pizza task is right next to Wall Street in Little Italy. I would not consider him a "racer that used to live in NYC" or a "visitor to NYC."

As I said, it will be interesting to find out IF the Beekmans have/get any hometown advantage. The leg seems pretty linear to me. JFK to Coney Island to Brooklyn Navy Yard to Lower Manhatten to East Side near the UN. It would be nice if the finish line is that same place that TAR 1 started from.

Recent finales have seem to have two RBs and a dual partner task. So far we have the bungy RB, the flag/salutation RB and the dual partner pizza task.

Agree with you with the recent finales, DrRox; but the problem this season is that we already had 11 RB performed along the race.  Here's the list, leg by leg:

1.  Tennis table and Fallopian Tubes.
2.  Balloons.
3.  Serve lunch at restaurant.
4.  Repair bus.
5.  Build a scale.
6.  Sell in the Grand Bazaar.
7.  Unlock the locks.
8.  Time zone puzzle.
9.  Switchback
10.  Tennis at Manacor.

The thing is we already have two more legs upcoming, and only 1 RB to perform.  Unless they change the rules and teams have to face 14 RBs instead of 12, what would allow a 7-7 count in the last leg with a double RB.

It hardly matters, as that line of thinking has been discredited previously. Teams do not have to be exact in their ROADBLOCK COUNT splits most years as long as it is not more than 1 off an even split. In fact, with some teams getting FAST FORWARDs and facing no ROADBLOCK in that leg, it would be impossible for with them or all the non-Fast Forward teams anyway.

The Houdini task might include escaping from handcuffs while being tortured in a dunk tank. It's at Coney Island so anything fun could happen there.

I think that refers to the RB (escape the straitjacket and bungy down). There might be more stuff at Coney Island, but I'm guessing it's just spot-the-clue.

Amazing Race's Phil Keoghan: The Finale Is Wide Open
by Joyce Eng

Sunday's Amazing Race finale won't have any drama like last season, but Phil Keoghan promises a legitimate tight finish. "It's what we always want, but can never guarantee," he tells TVGuide.com. The two-hour closer will find the final four teams — Chippendales Jaymes and James, twins Natalie and Nadiya, couple Trey and Lexi, and The Fabulous Beekman Boys' Josh and Brent — racing through France, where one team will be eliminated. The final three will then head to New York City, where they'll take on a memory task that numerous fans predicted would be the final challenge.

Get the scoop on what else to expect Sunday — and next season — from Keoghan below.



You've said you're terrible at predicting the final teams and the winner. How did you do this time?
Phil Keoghan: Truthfully, I don't think I've ever been right and I didn't break the streak this season.  I knew at the start that [the winners] were a strong team, but I didn't pick them to win the whole thing.

What do you think are the strengths and weaknesses of each team?
Keoghan: The twins' strength is their relationship — they finish each other sentences. Their weakness is sometimes they're easily distracted and need to focus. The Beekmans are the underdogs and they're very practical ... but they are lacking in physicality. The Chippendales have a positive attitude and a great friendship. They could be overly confident heading into the finale and they sometimes rush into things without thinking them through. Trey and Lexi — youth is on their side, physically. But you wonder if their lack of traveling abroad will catch up with them at some point.
 
What can we expect in the final legs? The preview shows the memory task is matching "hello" and "goodbye" with each country on the Race, which a lot of people predicted based on the subtitles every episode.
Keoghan: We were wondering if fans would pick up on that new wrinkle this season! I loved having the greeters a little more involved at the Pit Stops. The finale is wide open. The Loire Valley in France — it's honestly breathtaking with a chateau around every corner. ... The final three travel to New York City, where the teams test out their magic skills in one of Houdini's greatest feats. And then there's the final brainteaser Roadblock [with the greetings]. It's so much to fit into two hours of television. I think you'll be exhausted by the finish line.

Did any teams take note of the different "hellos" and "goodbyes" all the greeters said?
Keoghan: Some of the teams started to suspect that something was up with the "hellos" and "goodbyes." They even promoted the greeters on several occasions, but I think they were unsure as to why it was happening.
 
Is there any forgotten task type of drama on the final leg like last season?
Keoghan: Well, this was just a great finish for us with the teams being separated by mere minutes. It's what we always want, but can never guarantee.
 
Do you think fans will be happy with the winner? The twins are very divisive after the money fiasco and some fans don't like that the Beekmans were ready to throw in the towel for Abbie and Ryan.
Keoghan: As I've always said with all of our winners, some people will be happy with who wins and others will not. It really depends on who you're rooting for throughout the season. Putting all allegiances aside — you can make that argument that any team that makes it to this stage of the Race deserves to win. 

 
Are you surprised that there has been so much teamwork this season?
Keoghan: Not really. There are always teams who will help each other out along the course of the Race. The alliance between the Chippendales, Trey and Lexi, and the twins was a little more involved than we've seen in the past, but teamwork is always a factor within any season.

Why has it taken so long for teams to strategically use the Double U-Turn the way they did? They essentially made a Double U-Turn into a single U-Turn.
Keoghan: I have no idea, but I will never understand why a team wouldn't always want to U-turn another.  It's a valuable device that can be used to slow down another team. Why not use it?

What do you make of Abbie and Ryan and the Beekmans working together and waiting for each other instead of racing against each other to avoid last place?
Keoghan: To be honest, I thought it was a huge risk. No matter what efforts the teams make to jump on the mat at the same time we have the technology in place to determine exact placements.

Would you have eliminated the Beekmans in Amsterdam if they had told you to?
Keoghan: We would never want to see any team give up on the Race and would try to encourage them to stay in the hunt.  If you remember, during Season 3, Flo and Zach wanted to give up on the 12th leg and then miraculously went on to win the whole thing.  However, that said, we can't force a team to race if they choose to give up because of injury, exhaustion or due to a meltdown. I was happy to see both Abbie and Ryan and the Beekmans fight to the end.  It's so difficult to be picked for the show that you never want anyone to give up on this opportunity.

A lot of fans were angry that the twins weren't punished for keeping the rockers' money. Were they not penalized because the rockers lost the money and the money was fair game?
Keoghan: Yes, they weren't penalized because we determined that the rockers had lost the money before the twins had picked it up.   

How difficult was the first Moscow leg for you between the rockers losing their passport and two teams being almost a day behind?
Keoghan: Extremely difficult! We were out all night long in the cold — lots of logistical conversations about various scenarios. It reminded me of the long night we had during Season 11 in Poland when we were outside in freezing cold temperatures for 19 hours straight. That's when I long for Seacrest's trailer.


There have been missing passports in four of the last nine seasons. Why do you think it's happening so often now?
Keoghan: I think the show just provides the perfect ingredients for losing a passport: stress, jetlag, pressure, culture shock and the heat of competition.

Are you shocked that people still don't learn how to drive stick before doing the Race? How could the twins just take one class?
Keoghan: I don't think anyone should get a license unless they can drive a stick. It's the only true way to master controlling a vehicle. I taught my daughter how to drive a stick shift on a farm in New Zealand when she was 12 because I never wanted her to be anywhere in the world where she couldn't jump behind the wheel of any vehicle and operate manual gears. Only knowing automatic is pretty much like driving a golf cart on a golf course — just my opinion.  There are a few essential skills needed to be on the Race and how anybody could step up to the starting line without mastering a gearbox is a recipe for disaster.
 
What can you tell us about next season? Is the $1 million bonus going to be back?
Keoghan: No $1 million bonus for next season. We just wrapped filming this installment and all I can tell you is that I've lost between 10-15 pounds on this edition, and all I want for Christmas is a bed and a long nap!

The real question is..........who is the 3rd team at the farm this weekend?

I'd assume Jaymes and James considering Trexi and Twinnies probably wouldn't be there (although I'm guessing haha)  :cmaslol

i think it's the twin

jaymes & james have their chippendale show

and based on his tweets, ryan is still bitter with chips

What can you tell us about next season? Is the $1 million bonus going to be back?
Keoghan: No $1 million bonus for next season. We just wrapped filming this installment and all I can tell you is that I've lost between 10-15 pounds on this edition, and all I want for Christmas is a bed and a long nap!
 
The Amazing Race airs Sundays at 8/7c on CBS. Season 22 will premiere Sunday, Feb. 17 at 8/7c.
What does it mean? :o It means we'll be back to 1 million prize?

No more $2 millions?! :o It's back normal to $1 million prize? What happened with $2 millions?

Back to normal?  :cmaslol Abbie & Ryan were the only ones eligible for the 2 million dollar prize so like RachelLeVega, it's just a twist. Since, Abbie & Ryan are out, whoever wins tomorrow will win 1 million not 2.

Correct. It's NaNa joining the other two teams. Jaymes and James are hosting a finale party in Vegas and Trey and Lexi will be attending :)

Just throwing this out here since the race finished before the finale do you think we will see a season preview at the end of this episode for S22 (like what was done for S9)?

Merry Christmas everyone.

Hopefully Beekman's for the win.

I wonder if there will be a repeat of TAR 16, when at the end Carol and Brandy had a go at Brent and Caite. Abbie and Ryan could confront the Chips.

Don't think the twinnies would have done well at the last task. They skipped the Russian geography task for a reason.  :cmaslol

Recent finales have seem to have two RBs and a dual partner task. So far we have the bungy RB, the flag/salutation RB and the dual partner pizza task.

Agree with you with the recent finales, DrRox; but the problem this season is that we already had 11 RB performed along the race.  Here's the list, leg by leg:

1.  Tennis table and Fallopian Tubes.
2.  Balloons.
3.  Serve lunch at restaurant.
4.  Repair bus.
5.  Build a scale.
6.  Sell in the Grand Bazaar.
7.  Unlock the locks.
8.  Time zone puzzle.
9.  Switchback
10.  Tennis at Manacor.

The thing is we already have two more legs upcoming, and only 1 RB to perform.  Unless they change the rules and teams have to face 14 RBs instead of 12, what would allow a 7-7 count in the last leg with a double RB.

Wow!, I can't believe my hypothesis was correct:  14 RBs.

It's not the first time there has been more than 12 RBs in a season; we've seen the max be raised to 7 before. But this time to have 2 RBs on 2 separate legs was a surprise.

Sorry to interrupt this RB-topic, but I've just seen the Finale and I'm so surprised at the end.
I couldn't find words when the Beekmand boys made it. I wasn't happy that they won, I didn't like them at all, but I wasn't sad either, because I was happy to see,my top 3 at 2nd,3rd and 4th place, and that they were happy. :D so I hope the'll do an other All-Star and Natalie & Nadiya will be there. They have to! :D

I guess your rule book is out of date. The pattern for the finale has been the same since TAR18. Two RBs and a dual task.
