Would you be annoyed if answer is shared with one another every leg? That would be pointless.. and the reason why the BvW twist won't work on TAR.

Only unless they get 12 teams of 2, then swop every team with a different partner amongst the 12.

That would just render the whole TAR concept pointless.

great job, and thank you!

What is amazing is they stayed there 4 to 5 hours AND THREE TEAMS STILL FINISHED / TRIED to complete it at almost the same time. It may be editing, but it's just nerve wrecking to see Amy get her clue, then Bethany runs up to try to complete, then Misti. Then while the container is slowly descending, the other two girls are getting their numbers checked.

AND THEY GOT IT WRONG. Then Amy and Maya scooted off to finishing line... and I still cannot believe they are in the lead, then Misti got it, THEN BETHANY GOT IT. Then all three teams to the pitstop even though it was clear Dentists or Scientists are taking home the win.

It was so surreal. And heck, HOW DID AMY AND MAYA STAY AT THE TOP PACK THROUGHOUT THIS EPISODE? It's like a sudden leash of unfulfilled potential all fulfilled within the last leg.

They were not even ANYWHERE near the mid-point elimination. -_- LOL

Let's have a victory lap!  :conf:



I love it too!

Anyway, here are my rankings of the legs and the teams:

Teams:

1.  Amy & Maya!  Especially Maya, what with her hyperactive and excited reactions!  That always made my day!  And since I love all-female teams, I was rooting for them to win!  When they did, I was cheering!

2.  Adam & Bethany.  As someone who lives with a disability of my own (Asperger's Syndrome), I liked Bethany's being able to compete with those who weren't disabled and still beat them!  I also liked the fact that she & Adam were so calm and relaxed for the most part.

3.  Kym & Alli.  They were a lot of fun.  Unfortunately, they took a risk and it didn't pay off for them.  I wish they had outlasted Brooke & Robbie or even Misti & Jim.

4.  Dennis & Isabelle.  I would have loved this team to go farther since they were superfans of the Race.  Alas, it wasn't meant to be, thanks to falling behind at the Detour and problems with the punting.

5.  Michael & Scott -- I wasn't too fond of them at first but they grew on me and I sympathized with them for the injury that gave them such a hard time on the third leg.

6.  Keith & Whitney -- I didn't mind them too much but they made the mistake of getting into an argument with Shelly & Nici so when they struggled with the Detour and Shelly & Nici didn't, that was it for Keith & Whitney.

7.  Misti & Jim -- I liked Misti.  I didn't like Jim so much, especially on the first four legs.  But at least they were humbled.

8.  Lisa & Marie -- they didn't last as long as I might have liked them to.  But they wouldn't have lasted too long anyway.

9.  Tim & Te Jay -- so-so team.  I wasn't too fond of them but I liked them more than the teams below them.

10.  Shelly & Nici -- their dynamic was pretty bad!  But at least they gave me some funny moments.

11.  Brooke & Robbie -- just go away!

Legs:

1.  Final leg -- it had it all for me!  Self-driving, my least favorite team out, getting the chance to be an action hero, a challenging final task and my favorite team winning!

2.  Singapore -- I loved this one as well.  It too had a challenging Roadblock plus a tough Detour (I'd have avoided the massage task out of fear that it might be painful) and a great Fast-Forward!  Too bad that Kym & Alli were eliminated.

3.  Denmark -- I loved this one as well.  It had a challenging ARI and best of all, it had the Dentists humbled!

4.  Italy -- I love go-karting and I enjoy opera.  What else could I ask for?

5.  Malta -- the Roadblock was so cool and the Blind Detour was challenging!  I would have picked the Gostra but then switched when I saw what I had to do!

6.  Morocco 1 -- very challenging Speed Bump and a great Detour choice!  But the Roadblock isn't my cup of tea and I wished the Dentists had been U-Turned!

7.  Virgin Islands -- it wasn't the best-designed leg but I enjoyed the Roadblock and the flashback to the very first season (which I began watching towards the end and was my introduction to The Amazing Race).

8.  Philippines 1 -- my favorite part was the flashback to Colin and his broken ox!   :funny:

9.  Philippines 2 -- I was so glad when Amy & Maya were told to keep racing.  Other than that, it was so-so.

10.  England -- I liked the punting and the marching of the guard but it just wasn't memorable enough for me.

11.  Scotland -- mediocre.  Sorry, but it's true.

Joys

1.  Amy & Maya winning!   :xmas146
2.  The cast.
3.  Beginning the Race where the first one ended!
4.  Go-karting.  I love doing go-karts!
5.  Jim getting humbled in the fourth leg.
6.  Brooke & Robbie finally being eliminated!
7.  The Fast-Forward -- just not the result.
8.  Quite a few great legs and locations!
9.  The final memory task.

Disappointments

1.  Kym & Alli being eliminated in the Final 5 position.
2.  The second U-Turn being wasted.
3.  The Save being wasted.
4.  Dennis & Isabelle being eliminated early, since they were superfans.

As you can tell, the joys outweighed the disappointments.
