While it is perfectly fine to explain why you think a racer or a team did not
do well in a task, or behaved badly, or just isn't your favorite, it is
NOT okay to be rude or impolite
in doing so. We don't allow personal
attacks on each other or on our racer friends. Comments on how they raced are
fair, personal attacks are not.
RFF's Golden Rule:
Have RESPECT for each other, regardless of opinion. This of course includes no flaming/insulting other users and/or their posts.

Thank you for your appreciation Peach :luvya:, though I am only going to be updating the clue information tonight and "previously on" recap. So if anyone can pitch in and help update what the teams are saying and doing on this all-important episode, please do so and you will earn immense appreciation from everyone here who are not able to watch, from out of the US, or traveling abroad.

 The Chicago leg finale for me is bigger than the Super Bowl and Christmas combined. It's been 12 long years since my hometown has been visited and I would love to fully appreciate this finale without staring down at my iphone every two seconds.

Best wishes and fingers crossed for an epic finale! :hoot:

I concur with the thank you that Peach posted.  I appreciate receiving everyone's input and information.  We are on pacific time, so I will be glued to the RFF postings during the finale!

And this is it, the finale! :ghug:

Previously on TAR, 22 individuals arrived at the starting line and paired up! Reflections on the last 11 legs! Along the way, 8 teams were eliminated... and after thoselegs, theee teams remain! Who will win The Amazing Race?

With Tara & Joey's mess-up, looks like an underdog team is likely to win the race! :conf: :bunny :hoot:

Brooke & Scott made a smart move leaving their bags for a lighter load. I once read that strategy somewhere, but I can't remember where. ???

The riddle task on the finale is always great as it gives teams an indirect location. Having 3 of them together is even better! :bunny

So far, S&B and LoLo finished the postcards task, leaving T&J in 3rd.

"ROADBLOCK":Who's been keeping score?
Teams must use shortwave radios ro communicate to their teammate their placememst on each of the previous 11 legs. The receiveing end teammate must arrange the placements in alphabetical order. Then, they must use the numbers to solve an equation which would direct teams to a specifci seat number to find their FINAL clue

A final task that probably does not require so much memory, but it requires communication, which I think is the most essential thing this season. :hrt:

Leg 9 as last detour of the race is probably a record.

Despite not having a rb or dt, the final leg and final episode is delivering! :hoot:
