can i assume that.....

1) since all teams are strong this season, it is highly unlikely they would be stuck in one task,  Gary and Mallory are guanranteed winner by using their express pass in the last leg.

2) I read somewhere in the spoiler thread, one leg Gary and Mallory came last but were not eliminated. I don't know if they used express pass or not, if they still have it, they are still guanranteed to win by not making any huge mistakes.

it's not so fair and not so exciting to give out express pass this season, because all teams are strong and racing second time, as long as the team doesn't make mistakes that are fatal. They could win.
If Gary and Mallory haven't used the express pass by episode 9. then great chances they are the winner.

I think they have to use their Express Pass by Leg 8 or so, or does that not apply in this season?

I think Phil did mention that the Express Pass can only used up to Leg 8. Probably they used it on Leg 8 and claim first or something?

But I think it was a good time for time to use it. They could possibly be in trouble if they hung on the the EP.

You didn't overestimate them... They are a very strong team.  Even the strongest of teams can have a bad leg or two.  They used their EP in an appropriate place.

I for one have enjoyed this season from the great spoiler day in Australia in November to the aired finale last night.

And thank you, Peach, for not revealing the winner. Had I known they would win back in December I would not have enjoyed this season or the final as much. The surprise finish was at least half the fun. I would have also missed out on the fun of rooting for a team to win as that would be useless with a bootlist.

Congrats to all the detectives and spotters and everyone who made a speculation or a comment this year, it was great fun!

So Peach- now that it's over, I'm curious to know....did you know the final outcome this whole time? How much detail did you know before watching it on tv?
