I can't help but to laugh a lot seeing this! :funny: :funny: :funny: :funny: :funny:



I think it's a roadblock. I wonder if the other male contestants did this. This is really funny, considering it's made for females.

:cmaslol The task is on Bangla Rd in Phuket. It wasn't made for females... :cmas19

Thank You for the warm welcome. I've been following this forum for years. I just made an account now, about time I made one.

I think it's Jenny Wu as it really looks like her. However, her public instagram account has posts throughout the filming of the season. Unless someone is posting on behalf of her.

This isn't a judgment, but personal facts.

TAR26 has a 0.00% chance of nailing a plaque in my top 10 seasons list mainly due to the whole blind matchmaker twist that makes me feel uncomfortable inside. Leave that to the Bachelor to mess with romance and potential hormone activation, not The Amazing Race. One of the premises of this show is to present an array of PREEXISTING relationships tied in with not only love, but family AND friendship who are willing to test their bonds in a tedious challenge - to race around the world in hope of strengthening the connection between each other (and become richer). This is a key reason why I didn't enjoy TAR8 that much. It seems like Bertram and Elise hurled the idea of having family and friends in the dumpster and are desperate for Friday night ratings and attention. If that is not their intentions, then I will sincerely apologize. However, they need to acknowledge what made the show successful from the pre-HD seasons - a set of different relationships, not team & ethnicity variance.

I will watch this season from beginning to end, but just know I will not be fully impressed... :clean


I absolutely agree here. I'm kinda happy with the route, Monaco, Japan, Namibia, and a much long awaited return to Peru. The idea of the a "Dating Season" is a huge no for me. Like what Rachel said here "One of the premises of this show is to present an array of PREEXISTING relationships tied in with not only love, but family AND friendship who are willing to test their bonds in a tedious challenge - to race around the world in hope of strengthening the connection between each other (and become richer)." This is what the Amazing Race is about. It would have been better if it was Amazing Race USA vs. Canada similar to what Australia and New Zealand did. Hopefully Amazing Race 27 returns with a better cast and a great route. Enough with the spin-offs.

OMG THIS soooo much!!!! ^^^

As for the episode, what a great finale.  One of the best we've had in quite a while, and the Memory Challenge just seemed crazy difficult.  5 Hours says it all!!!

Amy & Maya winning was fantastic, though I did spoil myself with the spoilers so I had a fair idea they were going to get it.  I feel annoyed with myself now, because it would've been amazing not knowing the outcome.  It's very rarely a team I love wins, (Uchenna & Joyce and BJ & Tyler are the only 2 that come to mind) so it's such a great feeling when it finally happens again.   :bounce

Brooke started to annoy me this leg, with her constant negativity towards the Scientists, but I guess that's too be expected.  I'd probably be the same.  :lol:

Also, Misti & Jim went from being possibly my most hated team to one of my favourites the entire season.  They were great racers, and although editing over exaggerated Jim's intensity to the Max, he seems like a genuinely nice guy and never got upset or angry with Misti when she fumbled in the earlier RB's.
Having said that I'm glad they didn't win just so the Season didn't have a predictable winner.  Misti & Jim for the next All Stars Please!  :hrt: 

As for Adam & Bethany, they we're still very boring for me.  I know most people love them, but I think out of the Final 4 (even the Final 7) they would've been the worst winners for me, which I don't really like saying.  Having said that I have a serious amount of respect for Bethany.

On a whole this is one of the best seasons we've had, probably the best since 18.  I'm just hoping 26 doesn't drag the show back down to TAR 24 level.  :groan:
I'm super happy with any F3 team to win the race. So any one of them win the race would be a win-win situation for me TAR 25 as one of the best season and finale.  :cmaslol

I agree that Adam & Bethany are quite boring in the race, but they are the fan favourites of TAR 25. (Go hunuhbun  :kisses)
So I would expect to see them in AS3 or UB2 along with Misti & Jim and Kym & Alli, plus Brooke & Robbie and Shelley & Nici if TAR 26 and beyond didn't have many All Star team than the TAR 25.

The Amazing Race 25 Spoilers / Re: SEASON 25 FINAL QUESTIONNAIRE
« Last post by Belle Book on Yesterday at 10:59:57 AM »
1. Did you like the final leg?  You bet!  It had it all for me!
2. Are you happy with Amy & Maya victory?  Of course!  They were my favorite team!
3. Did they deserve it?  I'd say that just about every winning team deserves the win, but this one did it more than others did for me.
4. Now that it's over, how do qualify the whole season?  One of the Top 10!
5. It was what you expected before it started?  I just wanted a good season, so it exceeded expectations there!
6. Which was the best leg for you?  The final leg
7. And the worst (or the one that wasn't as good as the others)?  The Scotland one.
8. Which moment was your favourite of the season?  Seeing Maya's victory leg (at Phil's request).
9. Which one made you feel sad?  Seeing Dennis & Isabelle eliminated early and seeing Kym & Alli be eliminated.
10. Which one was the funniest?  Maya's victory lap.
11. Which moment was the most dramatic?  Amy & Maya coming in fourth place in the final Philippines leg.
12. And which one surprised/shocked you?  The fact that the cyclists weren't U-Turned, or the dentists.
13. Which team exceeded your expectations?  Amy & Maya.
14. And what team didn't fulfilled them?  Tim & Te Jay, I guess.
15. Finally, who was the MVP of the season? Why? (Don't have to be necessarily one of the winners)  Bethany, although Amy & Maya and Kym & Alli are also up there.

Joys

1.  Amy & Maya winning. About time an all female team won again! Proves that Amazing Race is not just about purely muscle. A great comeback for underdogs.

2.  This season's cast was among the best.

3.  Silver Anniversary of The Amazing Race.

4.  A visit to the Philippines, my country.

5.  Brooke & Robbie eliminated.

6. Some tasks and locations.

7. Final Memory Task

8. Final 4 Twist

9. Phil's appearances while teams are about to do tasks or while doing tasks.

10. A nighttime starting line.


Disappointments

1. Kym & Alli being eliminated in 5th place. A really strong team worthy of the Final 3.

2. Dennis & Isabelle eliminated very early. One of the few Dating Couples who are likable, in my opinion + they're superfans. It's nice to see fellow Asians on the race.

3. Brooke & Robbie going far through the season.

4. The Save wasted.  IMO the prize is really strong, The team who won it was immune to eliminations and potential U-Turns.

5. Wasted U-Turns

6. Lisa & Michelle eliminated early, I wanted to see their "Business Skills" applied in the Race since they have a great track record in the Real Estate Industry.
