Reasons for returning

Extreme: 
(UB2) leading the finale until a final roadblock causing their downfall, and never finish below 3rd over the race
(AS3) highest-average placing FF teams

Indy car:
(UB2) falling short of final 3 despite winning the most number of legs
(AS3) their unique friendship among all other Male teams

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

Definitely wouldn't mind seeing the Skiers or Indycar return. Wouldn't really wanna see Yale again.

The Amazing Race 30 / Re: Season finale questions
« Last post by Jro on Today at 10:35:58 PM »
1. Did you like the final leg?
2. Are you happy with Cody & Jessica victory?
3. Did they deserve it?
4. Now that it's over, how do qualify the whole season?
5. It was what you expected before it started?
6. Which was the best leg for you?
7. And the worst (or the one that wasn't as good as the others)?
8. Which moment was your favourite of the season?
9. Which one made you feel sad?
10. Which one was the funniest?
11. Which moment was the most dramatic?
12. And which one surprised/shocked you?
13. Which team exceeded your expectations?
14. And what team didn't fulfilled them?
15. Finally, who was/were the MVP of the season? Why?


1. Yes, wish they showed city hall but i suppose with the super long final task, they couldn't. Speaking of that final task, it was SUPER intense. Loved it.
2. Yes!
3. People are going to say no, and I agree that the Skiers probably deserved it more, but any team that beats a great team like the Skiers deserves a ton of credit.
4. Some legs were dull, but overall I liked it. Didn't hurt that the team I was rooting for won. Top 5 season for me.
5. Going into the season, I basically expected Jody to dominate and then lose to the Skiers in the final leg. Guess it was basically the exact opposite of what I thought.
6. Final leg for sure, and not just because Jody won lol. Seriously loved that final task, my heart was PUMPING
7. The first Zimbabwe leg with the partner swap. It was kind of boring for me.
8. I guess when Jody won
9. Seeing Jen struggle. Even though I wanted Jody to win, I hated to see Jen struggle on the final task like that.
10. Honestly can't pick out one moment right now tbh.
11. Can I say the final task again? lol. Probably the Lifeguards losing their passports.
12. The final task, again, because I fully expected the Skiers to win.
13. Yale for sure.
14. Firefighters. I expected them to be stronger than they were.
15. Cody 100%. He carried that team on his back for a large part of the race up till the final task where Jess stepped up, but I think we all can agree that there's no way Jody wins if Cody isn't there. I agree that the Skiers were super strong, but in terms of most valuable to their team, definitely Cody.

1. Loved it! It was great to see a San Francisco finale during the nighttime, especially visiting AT&T Park's Willie Mays statue where I visited during my last trip to SF.
2. I'm okay with it. I didn't mind watching them throughout the season.
3. As long as they crossed the Finish Line in 1st.
4. It's not my favorite, but it's in the upper half of my rankings.
5. Nothing as I expected especially with tasks and the duo of night legs.
6. The best leg is Leg 3 in Tangier. Loved the Bourne Ultimatum Roadblock! Lots of running around, beautiful scenery and encapsulating architecture! Cats are also a plus!
7. Worst leg is the Imire Conservatory team swap tour. It was nothing more than a waste of airtime and an extended promo for the wildlife conservatory, even though I do love the reserve's natural landscape and protected wild animals.
8. My favorite moment is the Zimbabwean concert-gone-wrong.
9. The saddest moment for me is April & Sarah's elimination when April tied herself up in a knot with her cargo trying to block off the firefighters during the frites race and Eric & Daniel overtaking them in those final turns.
10. Funniest... the concert-gone-wrong!
11. Most dramatic is definitely when we had Cedric & Shawn and April & Sarah barely making the cut in the first leg, with Dessie & Kayla ending up on the short end of that countdown and foot race.
12. I was most shocked when Lucas lost his passport flying into Addis Ababa.
13. Lucas & Brittany definitely exceeded my expectations. They didn't place high in the first three legs, but blew the competition out of the water with three wins before Alex & Conor could overtake this mark, and becoming engaged in Les Baux.
14. Cedric & Shawn didn't meet my expectations. I had hopefulness for them, but with fatigue and a Roadblock penalty kicking in very early, I overestimated their overall performance in the beginning.
15. The MVPs were DEFINITELY Kristi & Jen. Highest performing FF team overall by Pit Stop placement ever I believe.

You know that without U-Turning Violinists, Jody would've been out in Prague, right?

There was mutual dislike between Brittany and Jessica, who felt there was no NEED for a team in first place to use the U-Turn. Things got personal, and if you've never disliked anyone, maybe you won't understand her reaction.

I love how real Jessica & Cody are, and I don't live in a utopian world where everybody is nice all the time and walks around with a smile to put on a show. So I'm extremely happy for them, and they definitely deserve it all!

Good night everyone, this was an incredible season. :)

TAR 29:
- Matt & Redmond (4th place)
- Becca & Floyd (5th place)

TAR 30:
- Kristi & Jen (3rd place)
- Alex & Conor (4th place)


Alternates:
- Misti & Jim (TAR 25)
- Adam & Bethany (TAR 25)
- Matt & Ashley (TAR 26)
- Hayley & Blair (TAR 26) *would they do it together again?
- Denise & James Earl (TAR 27)
- Brodie & Kurt (TAR 28)

Notes:
- not many strong F/F teams to choose from :(
- I would've included Brook & Robbie but I'm not sure they'd come back as Exes
- same for Aly & Steve (as alternates; they weren't that memorable)

If they wanted to inclide winners, I'd pick Brooke & Scott or Jessica & Cody. I think it's awesome that winners aren't always the most boring team these days.

I'm not sorry. I have to endure almost everybody here badmouthing Dave & Connor literally all the time, so I think I'm allowed to do it for a team that I despise just as much.
I think there's quite a big difference between hating a racer's/team's mentality and outright calling somebody despicable without any given reason.

They behaved horribly and rude all the time, and I hated watching them whenever they were on screen. When they got U-Turned, Jessica got all salty and passive-aggressive towards L&B, meanwhile I'm like "You JUST U-Turned a team for no reason two legs ago, are you kidding me?"

I cannot stand Big Brother contestants, and I would be very happy if I never saw any more on this show.

Skiers were honestly the best editing misdirection I can remember.
The San Francisco bridge in their intro, the constant talk of past F/F winners, the overwhelmingly postiive edit... Of course they still made history as the first team ever not to fall below 3rd place, but I was so sure they were gonna win!
