The Amazing Race 30 / Re: Why the cut in Roadblocks?

There was an unaired roadblock in Bahrain.

No there wasn't. Jen confirmed all tasks in Bahrain were RI.

Yales :
(UB2) Falling short of winning just because of Henry deciding not to get a check for final roadblock
(AS3) I don't see them having a chance to come back after the constant bashing towards Evan by casuals

Casuals will want boring teams back, so definitely don't want to go by what they want.

It was a good final episode, there have been some weak ones in recent years with a team getting ahead early and weak memory tasks to close.  I would have liked the finish mat to be harder to find than just a straight run in, but otherwise it had plenty of classic Amazing Race suspense.

And I was happy with the top 2, they had more character than 3/4.  And Indy were likely the weakest of those left so being cut at 4 was right.  And interesting teams with clear strengths but also faults that they had to work on.

I wouldn't mind Henry/Evan coming back for an unfinished business season.

I just noticed another curse. It's call the Home Field Disadvantage Curse. If the race ends in the city you live, you will not win the race. Examples are:

TAR 1 Frank and Margarita are from New York and got 2nd
TAR 2 Tara and Will are from San Francisco and got 2nd
TAR 19 Amani and Marcus are from Atlanta and got 3rd
TAR Aus 1 Sam and Ranae are from Perth and got 2nd

Tell me if I'm wrong on any of these and if you have others

TAR 17, Nat and Kat were from the LA area and won, but also Thomas and Jill were also from the LA area and got 3rd. Matt and Dana were from LA and won TAR 28, but also Tyler and Korey live in the LA area and got 3rd.

Asheley and Jarrod from TARAus 3 were from Victoria and placed third in the finale leg, which took place in Victoria

At least it makes the leg structures more unpredictable nowadays, like this season's pure-ARI Leg 9.

At least this isn't one of the earlier seasons too wherein one member does one roadblock then the other member does 9 to 10 of them. We can say that the other member got carried hard in those earlier seasons.

I think Jessica still did her fair share of work. The final roadblock, I think, is the best example for this.
This is also true for last seasons' Brooke. Yes, she performs badly in tasks that both members have to complete. But when she is needed most (both the memory challenges), they shined  :conf:

What was that correct symbol for leg 12 supposed to be, a pistol? Inquiring Wikipedia editor wants to know :P

The only reason Big Brother won is because they gutted the number of roadblocks. Jessica got carried by Cody, and that's bullshit imo.

Did you miss the last 15 minutes of the episode where she was forced to do the final task by herself and beat Jen and Henry and ran to the finish line or did you just chose to ignore it?

Um Jessica was forced to do a solo task at the end and she beat Henry and Jen and won???

I thought that was the whole gimmick to the last leg.. Whoever did the climbing couldn't do the puzzle..

IF she was so weak at the tasks and not capable of doing any of them than Yale graduate Henry and Badass Jen should have beat her at the puzzle.
