Just acomplete side note concerning this season - I lovest the unique ripping style of the clues that Team Fun did (saw it at east once or twice this season). It reminded me of the 9th season and the hippies - The first ever I had seen on TV.  ;D

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.

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:

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.

They barely got any airtime and quite bland, but overall nice/good but invisible winners.
Whatever.

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
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
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.
