And we're starting! :conf: :conf: :conf:

Previously on TAR, 11 teams began a race around te world, the tensions were high and frustration was real, the competiion was fierce and challenges were grueling. All-strs raced harder and smarter! 8 teams were eliminated... Brenchel, Country, and Cancer's "thorough" race analysis... 3 teams remain, who will win tonight? :hearts:

Full Intro! :conf: OMGOMGOMG

Previously on The Amazing Race All-Stars, 11 teams arrived at shocking announcement that ended Bopper's race before it started. Mallory took Bopper's place and the adventure began. Along the way, the tension was palpible. Natalie & Nadiya arguing, lol. The frustration was real. Luke drops glasses at the bartender detour. The competition was fierce, and the challenges were grueling. The raft task!

The all-stars raced harder and smarter. Afghanimals U-Turning the Cowboys.

8 teams were sent packing... Natalie & Nadiya, Mark & Mallory, Joey & Meghan, Margie & Luke, Jessica & John, Flight Time & Big Easy, Jet & Cord and Leo & Jamal.

Brenchel returned to the race with a new outlook... less crying and more winning. Rachel wants babies. They were tested early at the bartender task. A U-Turn decision cost them their popularity, but they took the hits to earn a spot in the final 3.

Caroline & Jennifer still flirted. Jennifer's charming persistence got them out of trouble early after getting the EP from the Cowboys. As the competition grew tougher, the needed more than charm to stay in it... They were saved by 2 non-elimination legs. Since then, they have stepped it up and shot their way into the final 3.

Dave & Connor had something to prove after self-eliminating with an Achilles tendon injury. They survived an unexpected U-Turn from Brenchel, but only seemed to get stronger, earning their place in the final 3 with 3 wins in a row.

Coming up tonight... One of these 3 teams will win the million dollars... and The Amazing Race!

WOW, THE EDITORS PUT IN THE INTRO WITH RACE FOOTAGE FOR THE FINALE. YAY. :hearts:

Dave & Connor depart 1st at 4:31 AM. Fly to the final destination, Las Vegas, Nevada! When they land, they will be taken for a ride in a Ford Explorer. Connor tells Dave that Brenchel live there. Achilles tendon flashback. If they don’t win, they want to see Caroline & Jennifer win, especially knowing that Brenchel are familiar with Vegas.

Caroline & Jennifer depart at 4:38 AM. They love Vegas. They say they're going to get lucky. They're the only team to not have won a leg.

Brendon & Rachel depart at 4:52 AM. Rachel is super excited that they’re racing in Vegas. SUPER excited. :conf: Rachel wants to win the million and have a Brenchel baby.

All teams are flying to Las Vegas. All teams running out of the airport. Connor: “Are you our driver?” Driver: “Get in.” :stare Can this not be so creepy.

Teams talk about a conflict about Rachel apparently pushing past Caroline or Jennifer in custom? Dave & Connor in the first car, followed by Caroline & Jennifer and Brendon & Rachel. Caroline & Jennifer knew Rachel would bring out her dirty side.

Post by: Polaroid on May 18, 2014, 07:14:03 PM
Driving in the dark... Teams don't know where they're going.

“Get out and dig.” THIS IS SO CREEPY. :stare Dave & Connor first to arrive at the location, and they start digging. Caroline & Jennifer arrive shortly after, followed by Brenchel. They’re all digging for something. Teams are arguing with Brenchel. Brenchel are throwing dirt in Dave & Connor’s hole lol. :funny: Caroline & Jennifer getting in on this argument too. )-**

Dave & Connor get a box. They get back into the car, and it's property of David Copperfield. They’re off first. Brenchel get the box next. Caroline & Jennifer get the box in last. Rachel says she would have put more dirt in Dave & Connor’s hole if she could. QUEEN. :funny:

Rachel searching in the car for stuff to use to open the box. She gets a tire iron, or a jack or something. Teams not really sure what to do with the box. Brendon pries open the box, and there’s a necklace type thing with tons of keys.

Dave & Connor arrive to the next location first.

ROADBLOCK. Teams will learn the secrets of a daring escape from David Copperfield. The team member will be locked inside a wooden crate. They must unlock themselves from their shackles with 1 key from the necklace. Once they’re free, they will have to look for lock picks to release the chains holding them captive. Once they finish, David Copperfield will give the next clue.

Connor is doing the roadblock and David pops up behind them. Connor asked for a David Copperfield magic kit for Christmas. :funny:

Caroline & Jennifer second to arrive. Jennifer is doing the roadblock. Brenchel arrives as Caroline & Jennifer are hugging David Copperfield. Rachel is doing the roadblock.

David is blindfolded. He has the box. ??? One of the guys asks if Dave has the keys… but nope. Dave starts throwing the box to try to break it. It eventually breaks. Connor is being locked into the crate, and handcuffed as well. Dave hands Connor the keys through the top slits of the crate, and now Dave watches from a video monitor.

Caroline doesn’t have the keys or the box, so she goes back to the car. Rachel already has the keys, hehe. YAY BRENCHEL. :hearts: Caroline & Jennifer can’t figure out how to open the box. Caroline decides to start throwing the box.

Post by: Polaroid on May 18, 2014, 07:19:55 PM
David Copperfield is telling Dave how Connor is supposed to complete the task. Then Dave is supposed to flip switches and the fire crews will get Connor out of the box. Caroline & Jennifer finally get the box. David Copperfield telling Brendon and Jennifer about the task.

Connor finds the key that gets his shackles unlocked. Now Connor has to pick a lock. However, he can’t see anything and the lock is outside the crate. Now the crate is being lit on fire and it’s being lifted in the air… Dave looks really worried… Connor got the lock picked… He tells Dave to pull the switch and the entire crate just crashes down. The entire crate falls in a fiery explosion. :o

Dave: "Where is he?" Dave sounds like he’s about to cry…

Commercial.

Back with Dave asking, “Where is he?” David asking for the fire department… And Connor comes out of nowhere in a firefighter outfit. Route info: Proceed to the Neon Boneyard Museum, where teams will search for their next clue.

Rachel gets the shackles off. Rachel is picking the lock…

Dave & Connor get in a taxi. Rachel has got it, and Brendon presses the switch. They look concerned and Rachel pops up. Rachel says it's the coolest thing she's ever done. They’re out in 2nd. :hoot:

Jen picking the lock. Caroline presses the switch. Caroline: “Did she not get out?” Caroline looks really concerned and Jennifer appears from behind. Caroline: “David Copperfield’s such a jokester.” :lol: They're out in 3rd.

Dave & Connor first to arrive at Neon Boneyard Museum. They’re not sure what they’re looking for… Brenchel is telling their taxi driver to drive faster so they can have a baby. Their taxi driver says she can’t drive faster or else she’ll get a ticket… :res: :res: :res:

Dave & Connor find the cluebox. Unscrew a lightbulb from a silver and red question mark sign and go to the employee entrance at the Mirage.

Brenchel arrive at the location. Dave & Connor leaving. They get the clue, but they’re not sure where the question mark is… :stare They find it, lol. It was right in front of them. Rachel used to work at the Mirage.

Caroline & Jennifer looking for the cluebox. Brendon tries to take Caroline & Jennifer’s taxi because their taxi driver sucks. Brendon will pay extra… He wouldn’t take them because he’s taking Caroline & Jennifer. DARN IT. (:;) Brenchel try to tell their driver to be quick. Their driver doesn't seem pleased, lol. Caroline & Jennifer done getting the light bulb, and now they’re making their way to the Mirage.

Caroline & Jennifer like their taxi driver. Dave & Connor not sure where the employee entrance is. Caroline: "Jen, I have a bright idea. Let's win." :funny:

Caroline & Jennifer are first to arrive at the Mirage and get the clue. Working 30 stories above the Las Vegas Strip, they must use a window washing basket to replace the lightbulbs in the letter I of the Mirage sign. Once the lights are fully lit and they say the correct number of light bulbs used, they will receive their next clue. Dave & Connor arrive in 2nd.

Brenchel are annoyed with their slow taxi driver. Rachel says they literally hit every red light. OMG LOL RACHEL IS TRYING TO ENCOURAGE THEIR TAXI DRIVER TO GO THROUGH THE GREEN LIGHT. HAHAHA. “GO THROUGH THE GREEN LIGHT. THIS IS SO FUN. GO GO, YOU CAN DO IT!” :funny: :funny: :funny: RACHEL GIVES THE BEST EYEROLL EVER. :funny:

Dave & Connor wave to Caroline & Jennifer as Caroline & Jennifer being lifted up. Dave & Connor say Caroline & Jennifer are about 5 minutes ahead of them. Dave doesn't want to look down and he'd rather look in people's rooms, lol.

“It takes 2 country singers to light up the I at the Mirage.” :funny:

Brenchel looking for the back entrance of the Mirage. They have to run a bit, but they missed the cluebox or something? ???

Caroline & Jennifer say it takes a while to screw in the light bulb because it’s a bit far away. They're counting how many light bulbs they use, and they will add them up at the end. Dave & Connor begin screwing in the lightbulbs. Caroline & Jennifer say Brenchels got lost along the way.

Brenchel are in the hotel but they don’t have their clue? They’re running back because Rachel thinks they need a clue, but Brendon thought they had to search for the clue inside the hotel… Rachel: “SEARCH THE HOTEL? THIS IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST HOTELS IN THE WORLD!" :stare :funny:

We’re back with Brenchel looking for their clue… They find it all the way at the entrance. Rachel says it’s Brendon’s fault for just running. They bicker a bit. :stare

Dave & Connor catching up to Caroline & Jennifer. Brenchel going up now. Caroline & Jennifer say Dave & Connor have now passed them. Dave & Connor finish and guess 240. Caroline & Jennifer hoping Dave & Connor got their number wrong… DAVE & CONNOR WERE WRONG. They figure they’re 1 or 2 off, so they guess 241.

Brenchel make a lightbulb joke too, but I missed it. Booo. :(

It was 241. Dave & Connor passed Caroline & Jennifer. They’re going down. Caroline & Jennifer guess 241, and it’s correct. They’re going down now. Dave & Connor are barely ahead of Caroline & Jennifer.

Brendon trying to encourage Rachel, but Rachel doesn’t seem to be responding well to it, lol.

Proceed to Maverick Helicopters. Dave & Connor leaving first, followed by Caroline & Jennifer.

Brenchel got the number of light bulbs correct.

Caroline & Jennifer are right behind Dave & Connor. Rachel says she want a baby so bad… and she wants to win more than anything she's ever wanted in her entire life… Rachel gets emotional because she wants to win this. :'( They get a different taxi driver in the taxi line and they beg their driver to drive quickly.

Dave & Connor enter in the wrong entrance or something? Caroline & Jennifer’s driver not really sure where to go either? Dave & Connor now behind Caroline & Jennifer’s taxi… and now they’ve passed. It’s really close between them. Both teams running to the cluebox.

ROADBLOCK: "Who wants to be a UFO?" Skydive from a 10,000 feet from a futuristic jumpsuit. Fly down the strip in a helicopter and spot the sign with the location of landing zone, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Once they have relayed the correct information to the helicopter pilot, they can freefall to their partner.

Dave and Caroline doing the roadblock. Dave has never wanted to skydive before. Connor and Jennifer getting taken to a mysterious place. Jennifer is nervous because the clue says skydive to the finish line.

Brendon is doing the roadblock. Rachel is really emotional. Rachel says she doesn’t want to come in second. :(

Dave and Caroline are in helicopters, looking for the name of the finish line… There are lots of flashy signs everywhere. Caroline thinks she sees it? Dave sees it. “RACE ENDS AT LAS VEGAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY.” Caroline sees it. Dave is correct. Caroline is correct.

Connor hopes Dave is going to land first...

Phil: “Nobody knows whether it’s Dave or Caroline who's about to fly through the air... ...to reunite with their partner, but the first team to cross the finish line will win one million dollars and The Amazing Race...” Weird. Phil did a shot with just Connor and Jennifer… No Rachel. Well, guess we know it’s not Brendon who’s going to be jumping down in 1st, lol. :'( :'( :'(

Someone skydived… Nobody knows who it is… Just a huge fireball coming down, lol. Nadiya or Natalie: “WHO ARE YOU?” :funny: Nobody can see still… Who is it… Who is it…

The thing that sucked the most, IMO, was this was SO SO SO SO linear.

The TAR23 finale was basically who would hit the target first. The TAR22 finale was basically who found the spy first. TAR21 at least had a good memory task and an entertaining finale! The TAR24 finale went down to helicopters which was just sad because CaroJen could EASILY whoop Dave's old ass on a footrace.

WHO IS IT… WHO IS IT… WHO IS IT… It is… All teams looking… It is… Dave. :stare :stare :stare Dave & Connor running to the finish line. Natalie & Nadiya look the most excited, lol.

"DAVE & CONNOR… AFTER 22 CITIES, 9 COUNTRIES, AND MORE THAN 23,000 (?) MILES, I AM PLEASED TO TELL YOU THAT YOU HAVE WON THE MILLION DOLLARS." Dave is the oldest winner of The Amazing Race, and this is the first time a parent-child team has won. Dave is super proud of Connor.

Jennifer says she is super proud of Caroline as Caroline lands. :hrt: Phil says he has to compliment Caroline & Jennifer because throughout the race, it was as if they didn't think they belonged... but they finish 2nd. Caroline & Jennifer are glad that Dave & Connor if it wasn’t them. Dave talks about Connor going through chemo 3 years ago and had blood clots and they thought he was going to die.

Rachel is crying because they put so much into this. :'( :'( :'( Brendon lands and he apologizes to Rachel. “Well appropriately, you wore your sequins all the way to Vegas.” They are team #3. Rachel says they’ll have to wait until Brendon graduates for their Brenchel baby, but they say the adventure will be something they'll tell their Brenchel baby about. :(

Teams hugging and everyone happy and yay huge lovefest. Phil throws Cord’s hat. And now it's done.

Hmmm...I might have to take that awesome finale comment back...A skydive and it's over? No finale tough puzzle to actually CHALLENGE a team of All-Stars? Still a fun episode, just really the only downside

Happy for D/C to break the record, though, as much grief as people have given them. It seriously is an awesome gift in life to come back from all that health turmoil and do something incredible like this (it's easy for people to keep bashing them for comments - easy for you to say as someone who hasn't had to deal with cancer.) Of course, I also wish we learned more about them BESIDES their past ailments, haha.

 And AWWWW love CaroJen, SUCHH an awesome team! They're so positive and adorable.

Final Cast Rankings:

Brendon & Rachel: Great. Brendon & Rachel continued to be a very fun and rootable team. They did tasks all by themselves, they toned it down a lot, they had a lot of memorable moments, but unfortunate mistakes at the Finale (and Asian Sterling :res:) did them in. Still, they were the brightest spot of the entire Final 6. And Rachel was very very calm up until the final 2 legs <3

Natalie & Nadiya: They only lasted one leg, but the hilarious fighting hot mess Twinnies were in full force. A HUGE disappointment they didn’t even make the second leg and were screwed by a luck task/leg. :(

Jessica & John: Jessica/John are living proof that even the most WTF racers to bring back can become a <333333 team. Jessica powered through tasks while cocky John was nowhere to be found. They ran through legs being a very very nice engaged team, and the way they went out was completely and horribly sad. I wish them nothing but the best for their future <3

Margie & Luke: Another shocker. After hating them completely on TAR18, Margie/Luke reminded me why I liked them on TAR14 in the first place. Margie was a strong and independent old racer who definitely would have crushed Dave in the old department. Luke, while still melting down on Leg 4 and occasional times, wasn’t as meltdown-y as he was on TAR18, and them being basically screwed over like Chester & Ephraim was surprising and sad. The only bearable three-peater of this cast.

Caroline & Jennifer: While they had some questionable behaviour this time around, i.e them in the “Accidental Alliance” and their whole Leg 2 debacle as well as their answer-sharing, Caroline & Jennifer are definitely NOT a weak team. It sickens me that people would rather criticise them than see them doing well at tasks. (They got the best performance from the non-first flights in Leg 4? They aced the Spanish Steps Roadblock even though they were dead last? They raced in Leg 11 all around in the top 2? They almost won?) Caroline & Jen in the end was a great team, and they should have won the Race. Considering how they lost, it was really really horrible.

Joey & Meghan: They were much more toned down and invisible this time around and perhaps performed as the worst 9th-placers in Amazing Race history. A very very disappointing performance from a very consistent team from TAR22. They still both enjoyed the experience however, and the fact that they are currently friends with the Twinnies is <3.

Mark & Mallory: While Mallory was still bright and happy (for one leg at least), Mark pulled the team down (and NOT Mallory as the FB fans said :res:) Very very sad to see them both implode like that.

Leo & Jamal: The more tolerable and fun Afghanimals return. They raced well, they appreciated their experience, and they were the best M/M team of the season i.e the only tolerable M/M. Very very sad that they came up short in the penultimate leg once again.

*gap*

Flight Time & Big Easy: While they weren’t being incredibly loud and obnoxious like TAR18, they raced absolutely horribly. They were literally stuck in 7th and 6th place for almost the entire Race. While they in return became the true underdogs of the season, they absolutely should have been eliminated a much longer time than they were eliminated in.

*major gap*

Jet & Cord: While they weren’t as bad as they were on TAR18, the Cowboys were still the same old Cowboys I hated back then at times. The fact that the casuals worship them is completely appalling, and I wish I never have to see them on TAR or any show ever again.

*deep deep deeper gap*

Dave & Connor: Not just the worst winners ever of The Amazing Race, but the worst team EVER. Dave & Connor were boring and annoying on TAR22 as well as horrible people (Cheating on Pam & Winnie at the Roadblock on Leg 4 :res:), and on TAR24 they not only became boring and annoying, they used hypocrisy and bullying to give them an even worse personality. Combine that with the constant “I’M SIXTY!!!!” from Dave, and the fact that they kept whining about the U-Turn for three consecutive legs, as well as launching a full on alliance to take out Brendon & Rachel for just U-Turning them, and even going on a full-on mockery of Brendon & Rachel in Switzerland, they are incredibly incredibly unbearable to watch. Not to mention being hypocrites, they whine about being U-Turned and using the U-Turn and then they U-Turn a team themselves? They are the worst parent-child team ever, and now, they are the worst winners ever, and Dave is the worst old person to run the Race and win, and they broke the Leg 3 curse too and the Roadblocks WTF Dave/Connor? At least now we never ever have to see them again. People might say I’m biased just because I love Brendon & Rachel, but back then, I liked Vanessa & Ralph. I thought they were a fun team at times, and their animosity with Rachel was mainly entertaining. Dave & Connor though are definitely Vanessa & Ralph 2.0, but without Vanessa’s ankle story (MUCH better story than an Achilles tendon definitely :res:) and their no-nonsense, get shit done attitude. So so so insufferable.

SEASON 24 FINAL THOUGHTS:

*sighs* So TAR has successfully ended another season. It was a particularly horrible season, but nonetheless had it’s moments of greatness. Even before the season started, the WTF decisions made by TAR Producers were literal red flags to this season we would be subjected to. The fact that we had FOUR consecutive Double legs were ugh, but most importantly, when the Race started, we saw the cast for the very first time. And they surely brought back a lot of horrible choices. There were people thrilled with seeing Natalie/Nadiya, and surely a lot of people who hated having to deal with the Cowboys for a third time. More “WTF” casting decisions involved seeing Jessica/John and the Globetrotters. The boot list was horrible. Two true “All Star” teams were eliminated first, and we had perhaps the worst Final 6 ever of the show’s returning racer seasons. Not to mention the fact that the leg design was truly linear as hell for most of the legs. Leg 1 was basically a glorified luck task turned into a whole leg. Leg 7-8 had the same task pop out two weeks in a row. The Speed Bumps were TWICE delivering items. We even had a full task lifted directly from TARA and TARAUS! The finale was very linear and meh. The Amazing Race is supposed to be fun and good, and right now, it’s FAR from fun and good.

Season Grade: 4/10

I actually didn't think that Jamy were bad winners, a bit boring but not bad winners.

This time through the finale I was trying to find out who would be the least worst winner and I came up with... Dave & Connor. To my surprise. I just couldn't stand Brenchel today (if I was the asian taxi driver I would just let them go somewhere on the way).

As for the past winners - I was happy to see Zach win ;) He should get something for doing everything for Flo ;D

As far as I can tell, Dave and Connor would have won their earlier season, and they justly deserved the second chance and proved it.

They won it fair and square without the accidential alliance bs. As to Brenchel, my opinion of them this season began to drop rapidly these last few legs and whiny Rachel came back to the fore, I couldn't stand hearing it.

As to the tasks, it wasn't all linear; there were chances at the David Copperfield roadblock and the subsequent Neon Graveyard for teams to shuffle position, as well as possibly being able to spot the sign pointing to the final location from the helicopters; and the taxis also did a bit of scrambling. It's just that the only time Dave-Connor fell behind was in the cab to the Mirage, and they were fast enough on that task to go from 5 minutes behind to a couple of minutes ahead. That said, they earned the win on the final leg.

:conf: Congrats to Dave & Connor for winning the race and being the first ever parent/child team to ever win the race! :conf:

LEG 12 (United Kingdom --> United States) EPISODE ANALYSIS:
I'm surprised we didn't get any live sightings for this Leg as the skydiving looked like a meteor falling from the sky (no news about it) and the "I" in The Mirage was light-less during the night :res:. In this "all-stars" finale, we've experienced illusions to illuminations, ad digging to diving, but it was just not enough to please our thriller TAR stimula. The finale fell short on having adventure locomotives instead of chauffeured transportation which defeated the constant changes in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. The Leg was just too linear for me that it really wasn't a good finale at all. The final task was lamely predictable since it is obvious the first helicopter to depart the business would drop its team member before the second one.

ROADBLOCK #1: (Who believes in magic and possibly sorcery?)
The first Roadblock of the episode was pretty cheesy, but nonetheless a linear task in general as it depended on who was able to open their ring of keys crate first. Don't have anything to say about this task, but "I :luvya: U DAVID COPPERFIELD!"
FIRST ROADBLOCK SCORE: 5/10

ROUTE INFO:
The Mirage sign lighting task was pretty good as it required speed in installing lightbulbs and memorization skills to explain how many lightbulbs teams used, but I wish it was a Roadblock instead just to make this task a little more challenging.
ROUTE INFO SCORE:8/10

ROADBLOCK #2: (Who wants to burn up the night?)
All I want to say for this Roadblock was, lame. Despite the futuristic skydiving suit creating a flashy and neat light show, this task was ultimately pointless as stated above, the first helicopter to depart will obviously drop the teammate in it first.
SECOND ROADBLOCK SCORE: 4/10

OTHER SCORES:
LEG DIFFICULTY: 5/10
TEAM DRAMA: 7/10
DAVID COPPERFIELD's ILLUSION: 8/10, I've seen more mind-blowing trickery at his MGM Grand venue. Believe me, it's worth the price and possibly even a discoun for what MGM really wants people to pay. ;)
WINNER SATISFACTORY: 5/10
FINALE OVERALL SCORE: 5/10

SEASON OVERALL SCORE: 3/10
(Sorry, I just didn't feel the effort put into this season. Every Leg of this season was just bland at some point and the "local" movie-style music didn't do this season any justice. Worst season I've watched. :([/size]

For a "linear" leg, first place changed frequently. May not love the winners,
but it was a flashy, watchable, Vegas ending. Enjoyable.

Yeap, she's almost on fire. :lol:
Would anyone like to quote some of Marie's tweets (for those of us without a twitter).

"Dave should just take a nap while Connor screws those lightbulbs in"
"2 minutes in #achillescount = 2"

I think, after race, Cancer, don't win money, if was due Roadblock rule. CaroJen maybe wins the money. Or they don't got penalty?

Dave 5, Connor 8, that's exceeded Roadblock limit.

Tied with Eric and Danielle, Flo, and Jamy as the worst winners.

Flo & Zach are actually one of the best winners of the Race.

Jason & Amy were actually good?
I liked Zach, he was a great racer and deserves awards for putting up with Flo, who did one RB. At least Dave did 5 :groan:
I know Jason and Amy were decent racers skill-wise, I've just despised them since I first saw them. When I say worst, it's pure opinion and not based on placement.

Apparently you can't do more than 6 roadblocks before Leg 10 but in the final two legs they can be split 2-1.

Even though I, too, find it unfair, Dave was not required to do the RBs in Leg 11, even though Connor had done 6. If it was a rule, the clue for the Welsh poem RB would have stated, "NOTE: Dave MUST perform this Roadblock." Therefore, they should not have gotten a penalty.

Post by: Jimmer on May 18, 2014, 08:34:17 PM
Okay, I agree with not liking the winners and I completely understand.

I disagree with the thoughts that this was the WORST finale ever, for three reasons.

1. It wasn't entirely linear because there were some points where positions changed. They did at the Mirage light bulb task where 1st and 2nd changed. I feel like people also underestimate the difficulty of the Roadblock. From my understanding, this finding the sign could have been really difficult, but edited out because it didn't change much. Anyone remember TAR12 Italy and how some teams had difficulty with that plane task?

2. It was a NIGHT LEG!!! We desperately needed a night leg and I am glad we got one.

3. The race was really close, not like last season's blowout with Jay & Amy

Yes, I know it's bad because the tasks were not extremely difficult and there was no memory challenge, but I would still have to say that the finales of TAR19 and TAR22 were worse than this one. Yes it was not a good one, but certainly not terrible or the worst.

Let's not make personal attacks, that's not nice.

And I kind of sort of agree that I think she is a good driver to not change her driving because of someone demanding to drive faster. As the driver she is in control of her vehicle and I don't have a problem with her driving slower than normal. She shouldn't deserve an award, but I applaud her as a driver.

Leg Rankings: (Scored By Episode And Design)

Leg 6: A close second to Leg 4. Leg 6’s Roadblock (though a WTF task by design) was hilariously crazy, (Come On Green! Green! Green! <3) and it was overall a great episode filled with one of the best races ever for first  place in the past few seasons. The Detour wasn’t as fun as the Roadblock, but overall, this was a good episode. AND it had an Active Route Info! Not a challenging one, but it was still pleasant.
Episode:9/10, Leg Design: 8/10

Leg 4: Perhaps one of the most fun I have ever had with a replacement leg. Kuala Lumpur was gorgeous at night, the Roadblock, though linear, was fun and cultural for what it was, and even though the whole leg was RB-Fly-DT-Pit Stop, the Detour was challenging, (not cultural to Malaysia but oh well) and well done either way. One of the few legs I genuinely love in this season.  And I don't even know why :lol:
Episode: 8/10, Leg Design: 9/10

Leg 11: A definite third. We had a very nice extra soccer task in Liverpool, Wales was gorgeous as hell in HD, a very fun Roadblock, and a great Detour just pushes this up the tier of episodes in this season. Episode: 8.5/10, Leg Design: 7/10

Leg 8: A Donkey Detour is a great Detour. We might have just had a direct copied task from Leg 7, but both Detours were well-designed and well planned. The Roadblock though killed the episode portion, because it was pretty damn boring, but oh well.
Episode: 7.5/10, Leg Design: 7.5/10

Leg 9: Despite completely WTF tasks (Cleaning a hotel room? Really?), Switzerland was really really gorgeous in HD, the hotel room task wasn’t as bad as it was, the Ford calculating task was a good Active Route Info, and the Roadblock was a very very physically tiring Roadblock in Switzerland. Mount Titlis was really really gorgeous, and the locations and the surprisingly not-so-bad tasks help save this leg. Episode: 5.5/10, Leg Design: 7/10

Leg 10: While it was fun to see Bulls ram the teams and the Barber Roadblock wasn’t as bad as it could be and Flamenco Dancing was good, Caroline & Jennifer’s Speed Bump was completely meh, and a W-Turn before the Pit Stop directly isn’t fun at all.
Episode: 8/10, Leg Design: 7/10

*gap*

Leg 3: Though the waterfall Roadblock sucked and the Detour was very meh, the rafting in this leg saved it from being too bad. Teams falling down in the water was great too.
Episode: 7.5/10, Leg Design: 6/10

Leg 7: The Gladiator side of the Detour was fun, the Charioteer side was not. Caroline & Jen’s Speed Bump was okay, the Spanish Steps Roadblock was great in concept, but the answer-sharing destroyed this leg. *sighs*
Episode: 6/10, Leg Design: 8/10

*major gap*

Leg 2: Boring. Boring. Boring. The whole episode was powered by Mark/Mallory’s meltdowns, the Roadblock was boring, and Jiang Zi (which I played in P.E once :P) was the best thing of the episode, as we had the seven-team footrace, which wasn’t even as exciting as the spoilers made it seem. *sigh* Episode: 6/10 ,Leg Design: 4/10

Leg 5: A whole snoozefest. The fishing Detour was so boring, the Roadblock was so boring, the Dancing Detour was okay, but Brendon & Rachel’s Speed Bump was the most exciting task of the episode, and in the end, that’s a sign of bad leg design completely.
Episode: 4/10, Leg Design: 2/10

Leg 1: A whole luck task transformed into an Amazing Race leg. Canton Tower task was boring, the wedding shops were boring and pointless, and the Roadblock was just basically “hey look over there they’re so high up in the air adventure time!!!!!!1”. A bad bad start to the season.
Episode: 5/10, Leg Design: 1/10

Leg 12: The David Copperfield task was well produced, but the lightbulbs were meh because teams could just keep yelling numbers until they got it right. Skydiving to the finish line is unique, but it was very very anti-climatic. *sighs*

Episode: 4/10, Leg Design: 3/10

I disliked Phil's hosting style this time around, he talked too much at the Finish Line, the announcement of team's  placements in every leg was boring and lacked of any tension or drama, and his comments lacked of the neutrality needed from a host in this kind of shows, bring back the Phil from old seasons...

I agree - he seemed so fake and pretentious... it feels nothing like TAR. :(

That really emphasises how bad this was.

Personally, TAR15 actually had a great route despite the shortness of it, especially with countries unique to that season in Czech Republic and Estonia, plus they at least had Middle East (which feels different to the rest of Asia).

This time it was Asia and Western Europe - all very flat and very dull. No new countries either.

Phil was clearly sooooo bummed Twinnies didn't dominate, you could tell he was super disappointed it was them to go first in the premiere.

Thoughts on the finale:

:conf: :hearts: :wohoo: FULL INTRO  :wohoo:  :hearts: :conf:
That's it, TAR is saved!

I guess there was only 1 flight to Las Vegas, I wish they would've show us that, teams getting the the news that as soon as the flight lands is fair game and is anyones game to win...

This driver thing, is kind of creepy and I would've prefer to see them drive themself to marked spot... I guess they wanted to have the shot of the 3 teams digging at the same time... ok! What is wrong with Rachel at this point, pushing Caro or Jen at the airport first then throwing the dirt in the other teams hole, isn't against the rules to interrupt another team progress? This is why I don't like you Rachel, you don't run your own race you try to cheat to get what you want... What happened to the Rachel from Kuala Lumpur that I wanted to see more of? At least Dave&Connor and Caroline&Jennifer called her out... even though she still doesn't seem to care that she is trying to sabotage another team? What?! Run your own race Rachel you would do better...

I'm surprised Brendon&Rachel were the only ones to understand the clue, "deliver the content" of the box to David Copperfield and are the only ones prepare to do the Roadblock... At least that doesn't seem to stop Dave and Caroline to get the keys from the box, I wonder how long it took Caroline&Jennifer to open it because they seem to have the most trouble with it...  ???

I don't quite like this challenge... luck base and teams didn't seem to have enough control over their own performance... too "staged" IMO but at least it represent the "Espectacle" that is the life of Las Vegas... and probably most viewers wer thrilled to see David Copperfield in the race...  ???

I loved the idea of the visit to the Neon Boneyard, really cool setting, but I feel it was wasted for what was basically just a route marker... would've love a memory challenge based on Las Vegas Neon Lights... I guess the presumable change in route is to blame for the missing memory challenge... and here begins Brendon&Rachel's selfdestruction as I predicted last week... Taxi Luck is always a factor in The Amazing Race... don't be mad to the lady that is totally doing her job as it should be, just solve the problem... And Brendon is wasting so much time trying to steal Caroline&Jennifer's taxi cab... good oh him for trying but dude, get the hint, the cab driver is good at his job and is listening to the owner of the service...  :yess:

So far the leg is pretty straightforward but the teams are so closed to each other that it doesn't really matter... team placement keeps changing...  :wohoo:

And Caroline&Jennifer are the first one at The Mirage, taxi luck was against Dave&Connor at this point... Interestining challenge... and just when I thought Caroline&Jennifer got this, that they were going to leave first, Dave&Connor finish and get the answer wrong, guessed one number and get it right, that was lucky, Jennifer&Caroline get it right, first try, and they are off seconds behind Dave&Connor...  :wohoo:

And after missing the cluebox, and running around this huge Hotel, Brendon&Rachel finally start the lightbulb challenge, this is why it doesn't even matter if you don't have an allience, you are your own enemy, you have to beat your own limitations, and they couldn'd do it, they were not paying attention to what was in front of them, to what they were doing... they lost their focus...  :groan:

Both teams struggling to find Maverick Helicopters, is neck and neck, is still everyone's game, both really competitive teams going running to the cluebox, such a great feeling when you know BOTH teams really want this, and have the prize at reach, just one final push to finish... aaaaand the roadblocks tell them to find a sign for the landing zone, this could be really hard considering the amount of bright lights of Vegas, everything is shining and the sign they need to find keeps rotating with the information... this is a cool idea IMO but taking control away of the teams seems really odd to be the last challenge before the finish line...  ???

Ok, as I said, seems really awkward to have a team member at the finish line waiting for the other one to arrive... you can feel the tension of the eliminated teams and the anxiety from Connor and Jennifer just waiting for their partners... this as a challenge doesn't fit right to be the last one but it has that last WOW moment that should be there in the finale...

and... CONGRATULATIONS DAVE&CONNOR, WINNERS OF AMAZING RACE ALL-STARS totally deserved first place for this really competitive team, they fought really hard against a lot of great teams to be the winners of the race... I got what I wanted, a poetic victory from the Cancer Survivor team that had to quit the race on their original season after two 1st places in a row because of an injury, they came back, they race a great race, they did every challenge, they beat the odds, being a Parent/Child team, winning Leg 3, all the curses thrown at them were broken... They totally deserve to win The Amazing Race... :conf:

Caroline&Jennifer got a well earned 2nd place, yes, they were not the best team of the race, but they were competitive, they use everything on their power to be there at the finish line, looks, luck, strategy, everything to be a possible winner, totally earned 2nd place, wouldn't be mad if they were the winners... Total respect for this team  :hearts:

And Rachel is crying, again, this shot of her crying in the grass of the driveway is really sad, I'm glad they got outraced by the other teams... they had a chance, and they blew it... oh well... if they would've focus on what THEY were doing, and do their own thing instead of worry about what others talked about them, they probably would've done better... I guess they got overconfident at the beginning of the leg because of home field advantage, that never played in to place, especially considering what happened at The Mirage...  :groan:

I think Phil wasn't expecting this, he looked really happy about Dave&Connor, and his speech felt really honest and natural, not as scripted as other seasons... that group hug was great, a happy moment to end this season, to end this cycle of the race...

Overall, this season could've been better, it was entertaining, and exciting because teams were always closed to each other, but the route didn't deliver, not enough countries, we will never know what was that mysterious 4th continent the press pictures kept talking about, a big part of the cast didn't need to comeback, and their pressence wasn't worth it... but hey could've been better but I still have fun watching. :conf:

Love the final. IDK but it seems that they edit every leg so fast. But in my opinion, the tasks are all difficult than we thought. We had a shuttle position sometimes so it is ridiculous to call it linear.
- Magic RB: Actually, the magic just is how David Copperfield took the contestants out of the box. The actual task is finding a correct key as fast as possible.
- Neon ARI: I hope they made it more difficult by taking out the cluebox and all the teams had to find something to lead them to The Mirage. But good point to trick at least one team with finding that question mark.
- Light bulb ARI: This task seemed to be harder than what we see in the TV. Wind, Height, Counting, Screwing, Pressure. It's good.
- Helicopter RB: This is so cool. I think it is not too easy to find the clue. With a lot of light, a lot of sign board in LV and finding from the helicopter, it should take some time.
- The finish line is so great. Even without footrace, it still bring a lot of feeling.
So happy, finally, my favorite team of the season won the race.  :<3

Post by: Zachary on May 19, 2014, 03:05:50 AM
RIGGED

People who were in denial of this is probably headless or something...

1st off, Brenchel's cab driver. What kinda cab driver in Vegas doesn't know Vegas???? I've been in Vegas twice and I knew for a fact that Cabbies in Vegas ARE NOT that clueless.

2nd off, the skydving RB? Was it cool? Yes, back in Bora-Bora. Now? Not so much. A perfect way to "control" the outcome of the race.

3rd off, Roadblock shares!!! Phil made an excuse about the not more than 6 being reduced to leg 10. Then questions:
- In TAR 21, leg 11, why Jaymes, Lexi, and Brent were forced to  do the RB?
- In TAR 22, leg 11, why Katie, Mona, and Jennifer were forced to do the RB?
- In TAR 23, leg 11, why Marie, Amy, Nicole, and Leo were forced to do the RB?
You know what they all have in common? All their respective partners, James,Trey,Josh,Max,Beth,Caroline,Tim,Jason,Travis,and Jamal had all done 6 RB, prior to leg 11!!!!
Since Phil said the not more than 6 rule only apllied till leg 10, it implied that in leg 11, they were all back to become eligible. Then why were they all ineligible at that moment?
Phil's reasoning makes zero sense

I've never witnessed a racer performed 8 RB in a single season. Maybe in old seasons but I don't watch old season

FINAL THOUGHT?
You know I've never even thought that TAR would actually stoop to that level. The fact that Dave and Connor and Caroline and Jen only congratulating each other on twitter yet none of the other teams from this season seems interested in doing so to them, pretty much implied that they were all seeing this and lost interest to the show whatsoever. I expect this sort of thing from Big Brother or any reality tv shows really, but not TAR. Remember when Marie turned down the offer to return for All Stars because she said she disliked her editing? No, it's not that. It's because of this. It's no longer fair. I am very disapointed. Even if Brenchel had won I would've been still disappointed if they won it "that" way

The roadblock stuff is still very odd to me, We'll have to see if teams next season realize this loophole that was opened up to them.

Post by: Karpov617 on May 19, 2014, 04:37:02 AM
I want to agree with you, Zachary. But, sadly, we will never know. :(

THEORY: Maybe once Connor hit 6 Roadblocks after Leg 10, the producers quickly changed the rules to allow Connor to do more Roadblocks.

That rule wasn’t there before S24 but then BAM, suddenly it’s there. And in a returning racers season no less. Do they really think we are that dumb to not notice or care? No one has performed more than 7 Roadblocks starting season 6, AND THERE'S A REASON! What the heck are they trying to pull here!?

Please note that I would be just as disappointed and enraged if this happened to Caroline & Jennifer or Brendon & Rachel, but it didn’t. And then Dave & Connor won, which just makes it much more aggravating and insulting to us. :gaah: But I really can’t blame decrepit Dave here, but I blame production. Why? Can’t they hire an intern to look at the Roadblock count? For goodness sake, it's not that hard: current TAR structure allows for 12 to 14 RBs a season. If there's 12, that's a limit of 6 RBs for each team member. If there's 13 or 14, the limit would be 7 per team member. How the hell would this rule allow for a racer to perform 8 Roadblocks, huh?

I know all of this ranting is in vain as the bad team already won. :'( Let’s just say I won’t be recognizing the most recenet winners as “winners”. :res:

The only reason I could possibly think of with regards to the Roadblock Rule is that there might have been some Roadblocks Dave couldn't do due to the Achilles problem (remember this was only a year ago it may not have fully recovered by that point). Roadblocks that come to mind is the trampoline one in Leg 4 or the aerial flips in Leg 1

I am almost always happy with anything TAR, no matter what. However, this season left me feeling not so good about the future of TAR. I was actually sick at my stomach last night after the finale! Not because of who won, but because of the tasks. Yeah, it was cool to drop from a helicopter onto the FL, but why no memory challenge on an All Stars season is ridiculous! (:;) I can't wait for to see some improvements on 25!

Sorry, I'm done venting!

I don't think the new Roadblock "rule" (if you could even call it that) would apply to apply to Big Easy, who seems to be the only person to have ever been barred from doing a Roadblock (the waterfall rappel in Leg 3). And the last Roadblock was poetry reading. How in the world is Dave's achilles heel connected to that?

Your theory wont hold water. Simply because the Producers can not just change the RB rules in the middle of the race. The RB rules would have been the same at the srart of the race as in Legs 10/11/12. Why? Because it is against the law. There are very strict laws that govern game shows in the USA.

I just watched the finale. There could/should have been more tasks than just 2 Roadblocks & searching. (Though, this is the norm lately).

I REALLY REALLY REALLY wish they had the Racers run it out to the Finish Line. Caroline & Jennifer vs. Dave & Connor would have been so exciting, will 2 little country girls beat a young athletic guy with his older yet still fit father, or the other way around? Even if it might seem predictable, it would have been amazing to see a footrace again like Season 2.

The sky diving to the Finish Line was cool though, I admit. If only they saved it for another season :lol:

Post by: NMC on May 19, 2014, 09:39:43 AM
OK, So just a few things.
Firstly, Thank You CBS for the Full Intro again!!! And the new Caps were Great!  :conf:

Secondly, I'm not all that annoyed with the winners, infact I'm actually alright with Dave & Conner winning.
Like someone else has already said, whether you Love them or Hate them, you have give them respect, for overcoming such a serious illness like Cancer, and the injuries Dave suffered, and come back and win TAR.  I think its a nice sentimental finish to an All Star season, even if this Season was just  :groan:

Also, I still don't understand the Brenchel love?? I really don't like them, and Rachel's constant "We need to win so we can have a baby" really just sickened me.  How can anyone condemn Dave's constant whining, but overlook Rachel's constant moaning about having a baby. (Especially in the finale??)  :groan:
There's millions of people who have children everyday, and I don't see any of them NEEDING to win a reality TV show to have a baby.
And before anyone says they just want to have the money to help raise they baby, correct me if I'm wrong, but how much did Rachel get for winning Big Brother??? Exactly!

Anyway, moooooving on, I hate saying anything bad about TAR because I  :hrt: it much, and it will always have a special place in my heart, but if the producers don't make some serious changes for TAR25, along with the Time Slot move to Fridays, I really feel we're going to see the last of it very soon.  :'(

I can understand where they are coming from because raising a baby is expensive and it would be nice to have more financial stability when raising one. But I do agree that no one needs to win a reality TV show to have a baby and I believe they understand that. They said they just have to wait to have more money and a better financial situation and they aren't getting for TAR. I think they are smart to do that.

If they really wanted to include the Helicopters, they should have put them at the start of the leg,and have them skydive to the digging site.
The finish line would have been SOOO much better if it was a sprint, not a drop. Caroline and Jennifer and Cancer were so close together, but, a helicopter landing and taking off (which had to happen in between Dave and Caroline) would OBVIOUSLY stretch the gap. Plus, the helicopters had to fly around a route through the city, so there was no chance of any catching up. Like last season's finale, it had serious design flaws: starting with a luck task and then linear tasks to the FL. The only difference is that racers didn't struggle in this luck task, allowing there to be teams close to each other. Although this was a close finish time-wise, with less than a 5-minute gap between Cancer and Caroline and Jennifer, the latter had no chance of winning after the two teams arrived at Maverick Helicopters.

I agree with you 100%

Even though I'm totally ok with the results of the finale, I can agree that the helicopters and the skydiving determined the winner... cosidering how close it was the arrival at the Maverick's Clue Box, the task got in the way of a close photo finish.

If they wanted the skydiving to the FL, it would have been a better use if both team members had to perform the jump to the FL after a strong second RB; with the choppers waiting close to the RB location.

Just watch the finale, and for a while I really rooted for Caroline and Jennifer, I think they deserve to win this more than Dave and Connor. Also, I like CaroJen's taxi driver.

Also I think this is a short leg for a finale? And did I miss a memory task that usually happens at the finale (and sometimes determines the winner). And yeah the sky diving task would have been better if it is placed at the start of the leg, maybe going to the digging site. BTW, what's with the digging site? I don't see the logic of such task and the eeriness of the SUV drivers, I think it's more "finale" if this is a self-drive leg. Also, I miss flight drama? So much things that I thought would have been present considering that this leg will determine the winner.

Overall I think for this leg it's just 6/10 for me.

Reality TV World: Oh wow. You lost by literally only four seconds? I was going to ask how long after Dave and Connor you got to that Pit Stop mat.

Caroline Cutbirth: It was four seconds. The thing that was crazy is, we were in the cab at the cluebox and then Dave and Connor passed us, so we didn't really think anything of it. But the person who pulled the clue first got to jump first.

And so the fact that they pulled the clue first, I was in the helicopter five seconds before Dave, but they pulled the clue first so they took off first. So literally, we counted last night, and we got there four seconds after them. So we were just like, "Oh my gosh! We were four seconds away from a million dollars."


Bad leg design screwed over a more deserving winner :/

And the saddest, worst thing is that CBS, WRP, and whoever else would never admit that there was ever a problem. With the David Copperfield cameo, the magic (:res:) task, the skydiving to the Finish Line, they wouldn't think that there is a problem with the helicpter order. Decrepit Dave could have taken his sweet time getting ready and could have made Caroline wait for 10 minutes but she couldn't get on the helicopter because Dave got to the clue first by 4 seconds, and that is the problem with the helicopter order.

And obviously, Caroline & Jennfier doesn't think there was a problem with this either.

Please God, don't let Brenchel appear a third time on TAR. I don't think I can stand another round of Brenchel fan melt down syndrome.

I never understood all the love for Brenchel. Brendon seems nice enough, bur Rachel always came across as thoroughly unpleasant and whiny to me. She whines as much as Dave did (more if you look at their previous seasons), but somehow most of you give Rachel a pass on it. I didn't see her on Big Brother. Maybe she was different there.

Rachel was tolerable until the last two or three legs....then the whining came out, and it was too much.

The above teams should comeback, but the Twinnies deserve and need redemption. They were robbed due to a poor leg design.

Many teams in the history of TAR have been robbed truly due to poor leg design, Nary and Jaime, Aja and Ty, Katie and Rachel etc.

But the twinnies are definitely NOT one of them.

The twinnies were on the first flight but were dumb (they even admitted it themselves) enough to lose their lead while looking for a bridal shop. Leo and Jamal were with them and recovered from it but these two never stop to think and process their thoughts but instead found out that they were last and fumbled/panicked. The twinnies were never robbed, but got eliminated exactly the fair and square way, IMHO.
