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:

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

Congratulations Brooke & Scott!  :conf:

Time for TAR to hypothetically dip into record low viewership during the TAR30 premiere! :conf: :conf: :conf: :whoop:

If we can survive after TAR3 nearly got us cancelled (both ratings wise and casual reaction-wise), we can survive anything.

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.

Anyway, I'm really stoked to see Brooke & Scott winning! They ran a perfect leg this time and they deserved it. I LOVE how Brooke was so calm during the final memory challenge. It's kinda rare to see her so calm even when Tara & Joey were just in their back. :lol:

I really hope we can see more seasons soon. This season clearly one of the best after Season 25 I think. :D

I would say there was actually a giant way for placements to shuffle - Brooke & Scott just ran a great final leg while everyone else messed up.

That said, the finales have actually been better designed in recent seasons than of seasons past since 25?

Sure, the 28 finale was horribly linear, but the 25/26/27/29 finales are all very solid legs and easily the best finales of this show since TAR12 (with 21 being a good exception!).

Happy with the result. Brooke is way more capable than Flo, she may be loud, complain and be super aware of her physical limitations, but in the end she got things done, even if that required some social game, like asking for help for certain challenges. Fun to have super fans winning.

Despite the linear design, there was space for teams to shift placements, but it never happened, cause Brooke and Scott ran a nearly perfect leg, while the other two made more mistakes.
Did hope that the hot dog task involved more than simply picking them up and delivering them, like having the racers also preparing them like we speculated.
Though I do question whether would be possible to have multiple teams at the memory challenge at the same time. As flawed as TAR28 finale was, having all the 3 teams racing to complete the memory task at the same time was awesome, and at least the way it was filmed, it didn't seem that it would be possible to something like that to happen this time around, and that's considering how long teams were in there performing this task.

I would also like to tell people (especially guests who may be outraged with this result) reading this thread that the narrative of Brooke "not doing anything except with help" that seems to be very common on Facebook and Twitter is completely absurd.

Let's count the number of tasks she did without asking for help or complaining.
-The Starting Line Task
-Leg 1 Detour, sure, I'll give you that, but it was basic frustration at not getting a task right on your first go.
-The Entirety of Leg 2
-The Entirety of Leg 3
-The Detour on Leg 4 where she was even one of the FIRST to discover the box
-The Entirety of Leg 5 sans the Fish task
-The Entirety of Leg 6 sans the Detour
-The Entirety of Leg 7 (her complaining that leg was not task-related at all, it was transportation related. Also she arrived at the mask Roadblock in LAST and LEAPED to FOURTH singlehandedly. Even Scott was shocked.)
-The Entirety of Leg 8 (she was CALM throughout the whole leg and even nailed a tough Roadblock and got them to their first Top 3 placement)
-The Entirety of Leg 9 sans the Detour
-The Entirety of Leg 10 (as all her bitching was related to transportation and NOT the actual tasks)
-The Entirety of Leg 11 (for obvious reasons)
-The Entirety of the Finale sans the Tires

Brooke competed in a total of 22 tasks on this season of The Amazing Race (5 Roadblocks, 9 Detours, and 8 Route Infos). The number of tasks she complained at comes to a grand total of FIVE.

Factoring that in, she has still done 77.28% of the tasks ON HER OWN WITHOUT COMPLAINING.

Thus, I'm going to need you to stop pushing the narrative of her being completely useless because she truly was not.

She was right! "I never said the four letter word". She may have complained but she never gave up. She never fully threatened or decided to quit. This is not Big Brother or Survivor when the winner is determined by a jury and how you accept the winner is subjective - winners of The Amazing Race win because they played the best game on the final leg. Period.

Also: stop calling this leg "the easiest ever" just because you're salty about the results. You guys all loved the 24 finale, but that was, far-and-away, a million times easier. :res:

I'll agree with you on most of this post, but you've got to be kidding me about 24(All Stars)'s finale being popular. They just made zero effort to make that leg exciting or suspenseful, and it's pretty much accepted by over half the fanbase that it was rigged. Even my dad and I watched it live and we both thought it was terrible.

Unfortunately it is and I even saw people on Facebook calling it a better finale than this. It appears as long as who casuals deem as "deserving" wins, anything else doesn't matter to them. I also distinctly remember (although not to this extent) outrage over the TAR25 finale.

Gamer, very well said.  :hoot: I really do think from my perspective that there are instances that she is just "vocal" but would come off as "complaining" to the viewers. As Abba (of James & Abba, S.21) once said "Viewers are at the comfort of their own home with the a/c on sipping cold soda, how about you do the task in immense pressure?"  It's easy for them to comment on this and that but when you are at the challenge yourself, it is not as easy as it looks. I remember the outrage over Amy & Maya in S.25 where they were still racing after coming in last in Leg 11. It was the producers decision to have a Final 4 Finale, they won because of their flawless performance at the Final Roadblock. People were complaining of them winning and they should have been eliminated at 4th place. The same way for Brooke & Scott for a flawless performance the entire leg.

Did they not have to actually make the hotdogs, just run them across the street?

That would have made the task better, the Chicago hotdog is apparently a specific arrangement of toppings.

In the end, whether the team appears to 'deserve' the win or not, it's about race smarts.  Brooke and Scott, for all of their drama, learned race smarts along the way and it paid off.

Believe it or not. I had them to win since the first episode. :funny: :funny:

Haven't watch the season even (up till Leg 5) but I knew they had what it takes to win when producers kept on harping on Brooke's inability and Scott's niceness. It was Flo and Zachhhhh 2.0 but Brooke >>>  Flo in terms of ability and attitude.

Review for the leg:
Interesting racing task on the race, with time pressure as main difficulty.
The riddle task on the finale is always great as it gives teams an indirect location. Having 3 of [the teams bunched up] together is even better! :bunny
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:
tl;dr: Time Pressured ARI + Triple Riddle ARI + Communication Memory ARI = Great Finale :hearts:

Tbh, I was disappointed with LoLo not being fast enough to catch up to the front of the pack. They probably took the subway since they weren't allowed to take a cab in the middle of the task. This could mean they were at the farthest end during the 2nd task, which pretty much ruined their chance to be racing at the front of the pack. I thought they would have a chance to dominate the final leg, but they're pretty much the team who might be stopped on their tracks if in an F4F. Still, making it far in this leg requires luck and effort, which they had all the way until the finish line.

Tara & Joey's mess-up was the riddle part. It's part of the task though, so they made a mistake on their own. At least it's not some cab taking them to the wrong place or getting U-turned. Those are examples of getting eliminated not by a team's own effort. They did well in the race overall, especially as the eldest racers of the season. Hopefully this encourages TAR to get more older "more experienced" racers in the future! :hoot: Well, not just 46 and 38, but something older than those! :hoot:

Brooke & Scott. Wow! They had such a race. Brooke may have had hard times calming down, but she gets through those eventually. She may have complained in so many tasks, but she gets them done. The ladle task may have been her lowest point, but S&S were really way behind that leg, so I still think they would survive that leg even if they didn't have other teams' helps. ??? This leg, she was trying to be calmer than she ever was in the entire race. There were times Scott pushed her from her limit, but she still tried to keep it together. Some tasks might have frustrated her slightly this leg, but she just vent out a bit and continued or tried again. What I really like about Brooke is that despite her complaining, she got things done in the end. I find her complaining selectively annoying and unnecessary sometimes, but she got tasks done, so that shouldn't be a big of a thing to let her team down. The worst case scenario would have been she complaining too much to the point that she gave up on a task and got her team eliminated because of it. Speaking of which, I don't remember her not finishing a task, as her team never took a penalty. :hoot: Scott on the other hand has a really nicely built story arc with his fear of heights. 3 of the 6 roadblocks he did were heights. :funny: 1 rappel down due to Brooke's injury, 1 climbing up due to something ??? , and 1 bungee jump which he hated the most. :funny: It was enjoyable seeing him overcome those fears somehow. In the end, climbing the ladder to the memory tasks didn't even scare him (or was I just overlooking things? :lol: ). Anyway, aside from that, I really like his dynamic with Brooke. It taught him to be more patient, to be very patient. :lol: Brooke would have had a different race timeline had Scott not chosen her. What I really like about Scott is his funny commentaries and reactions throughout the race. I think this peaked during the 6th leg, but for half of the race, there's something memorable and funny from him. I noticed that Scott was tense this leg, since it's the finale, thus there were times Brooke was questioning why Scott was yelling at her when in fact Scott was only talking too loud because of the pressure of the final leg. :funny: Somehow, they did switch places this leg similarly to how they did back in the Nihn Bihn leg. :lol: I really like their team dynamic and story arc all throughout the race, so this win was really well-deserved, from strategy all the way to effort. :hoot: :conf: :wohoo:

Overall, this is one amazing season! The cast delivered, the twist worked out very well, the locations were wonderful despite not having a new country, and most leg designs were great, which made most episodes turn out well as a result. The editing improved this season! I'm not sure if it's just me, but in (almost?) every episode, each team was given enough screentime for character development. Hope this season makes future seasons amazing-er than the amazing-est! :hrt:

An odd part about the finale - we never got to see teams making the hotdogs when a picture of Brooke & Scott making them and the task description on CBS Press Express stating that they made it and then delivered it. I have to wonder, was it cut out along with the full intro for the sake of airtime? Seems odd to not show it as a task, it could have made the finale seem a little bit fuller.

-The Entirety of Leg 6 sans the Detour
-The Entirety of Leg 7 (her complaining that leg was not task-related at all, it was transportation related. Also she arrived at the mask Roadblock in LAST and LEAPED to FOURTH singlehandedly. Even Scott was shocked.)
-The Entirety of Leg 8 (she was CALM throughout the whole leg and even nailed a tough Roadblock and got them to their first Top 3 placement)
-The Entirety of Leg 9 sans the Detour
-The Entirety of Leg 10 (as all her bitching was related to transportation and NOT the actual tasks)
-The Entirety of Leg 11 (for obvious reasons)
-The Entirety of the Finale sans the Tires

Brooke competed in a total of 22 tasks on this season of The Amazing Race (5 Roadblocks, 9 Detours, and 8 Route Infos). The number of tasks she complained at comes to a grand total of FIVE.

Factoring that in, she has still done 77.28% of the tasks ON HER OWN WITHOUT COMPLAINING.

Thus, I'm going to need you to stop pushing the narrative of her being completely useless because she truly was not.

She was right! "I never said the four letter word". She may have complained but she never gave up. She never fully threatened or decided to quit. This is not Big Brother or Survivor when the winner is determined by a jury and how you accept the winner is subjective - winners of The Amazing Race win because they played the best game on the final leg. Period.

Also: stop calling this leg "the easiest ever" just because you're salty about the results. You guys all loved the 24 finale, but that was, far-and-away, a million times easier. :res:

All your points are invalid considering that without help they would have been eliminated leg 4 regardless of how much or little complaining she did. If she didn't have help on multiple steps, I would put money on them still being there waiting on a ladle.

Shamir and Sara were so behind at that point that they would have been eliminated instead if both were still there considering the race rules of a tiebreaker being the team who finished higher in the last leg would survive.

My points are indeed valid.

The ladle was Leg 4? Leg 3 was the Double U-Turn leg that eliminated Seth & Olive.

Yes but my point remains that SHAMIR AND SARA were so far behind that even if Brooke had no help and taken a penalty, Shamir & Sara also failed to do the ladle Roadblock since they didn't complete it on time and the place closed. As Brooke & Scott finished higher than them on the previous leg, they would have survived over S & S.

In the end Brooke & Scott deserved their win, they continuously had fire lit under them and they even Dan&Jordan'd an early lead with an airport trick

This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

I watched the recap by London and her sister Chase, where Scott was also a guest and I can tell you they definitely deserved to win. Not just deserved, but they were hands down the smartest racers in the finale.

Besides checking-in their bags, Scott & Brooke wrote down notes (what they remembered) from previous TAR's visits to Chicago. Two of the riddle places - the fountain and another one, can't remember which - was already in their minds and they had addresses, thus saving a lot of time. Also, they planned the fastest route to visit all those 3 places, which London admitted she & Logan had not thought of.

Additionally, Scott said that the memory task was probably the easiest aspect they could have been asked for. He had easily memorised all of Brooke & his placements. :)

He's a superfan, but I'm surprised Scott didn't recognize Ernie & Cindy.

Then again,  according to RHAP, he referenced the original season the Corinth bungee jump was in, actually got discouraged by production from doing that for some reason.

Discouraged to recognise Ernie & Cindy? ???
I actually think he did recognise them and it was just not shown, or he was so distracted by the race that he did not realise it was them.

According their interview to one of the recap podcasts, either Afterbuzz or Justin and Diana's Racers Recap. They definitely had Race Blinders on during the task, but did realize who they were after leaving the stands, but considering they were still racing, it was not worth going back just to say hello.

Every teams who won deserved to win because they did the best in the final even if you like that team or not.
