1. Yes

3. Yes, because they deserved it after about 15 years, and I hope this convinces production for the next All-Star season to cast old-school teams.
4. 4/5
5. Don't Know
6. Laos, Split, London, and Detroit
7. Dubai
8. Colin & Christie winning
9. Corinne & Eliza's elimination
10. Nothing in particular
11. Nothing
12. Nothing
13. Rupert & Laura, and Corinne & Eliza

1. Did you like the final leg?
Yup! :2hearts:

2. Are you happy with Colin and Christie victory?
YES VERY MUCH! After Nicole & Victor were eliminated, I was just hoping Colin & Christie could pull it off!

3. Did they deserve it?
Ugh, hell yeah!

4. Now that it's over, how do qualify the whole season?
If the question is "good or bad", it's definitely a good season. But I don't think it qualifies as one of the iconic seasons for me (ala seasons 5, 10, 18, 25, 28)

5. It was what you expected before it started?
I always lower my expectations so I wouldn't get THAT grumpy hahaha. This really applies for season premieres and finales. But Leg 12 was actually intense to watch with Tyler & Korey and Colin & Christie almost neck and neck all the time!

6. Which was the best leg for you?
Most likely Leg 2 in Laos! I love a language task, lots of shuffling, surprise U-Turn on the second leg that gets drama kick-started, amazing locales, great editing, all good hallmarks of a great TAR episode :D

7. And the worst (or the one that wasn't as good as the others)?
I'm gonna say the Japan leg. Tasks were not inspired.

8. Which moment was your favourite of the season?
The U-Turn vote in Switzerland 2! Much drama, much hype and it definitely delivered! Also, the Seven Nation Army task in Detroit! (I LOVE the cover in the episode)

9. Which one made you feel sad?
Chris & Bret's fall from grace in Croatia. And having to root for either Colin & Christie or Nicole & Victor to get third place in England :'(

10. Which one was the funniest?
 :funny: Bret the Elephant (and that Elephant task in general), Victor's side-eyes in Switzerland 1

11. Which moment was the most dramatic?
The tension in the air in Switzerland 1 with the supposed U-Turn plans, Nicole & Victor at the Cow hoisting detour in the Netherlands, and the drum assembly task in the finale.

12. And which one surprised/shocked you?
I was surprised they brought on the U-Turn vote! But I should have expected it since we have teams from elimination-via-voting shows.

13. Which team exceeded your expectations?
Definitely Nicole & Victor! At the start I thought they would go more of the Jordan & Jeff route in Season 16, but no! They are actually really good and were the first non-TAR team to really get the hang of the Race. Also shout out to Chris & Bret for being a surprise favorite of mine, as well as Colin & Christie for being very evolved from their TAR 5 appearances. Those there are my fave teams of TAR 31! :2hearts:

14. And what team didn't fulfilled them?
Well, Rachel & Elissa went far but their performance went down after Leg 3 :/ Also Corrine & Eliza, I thought they'd be my favorite team from Survivor, but nothing really came to fruition.

15. Finally, who was/were the MVP of the season? Why?
Colin & Christie definitely. Consistent standings (another team to not fall lower than 4th place). Probably the 2nd best placement of a U-Turned team (after Bill & Cathi, of all people). Tied with Tyler & Korey for the most career leg wins (at 9). And their Heel-Face turn from season 5 to 31 :jam:
I'm gonna fight 'em all

3. Did they deserve it? Yes, because they worked hard to change their Racing style for the better and to improve their relationship with each other.

5. It was what you expected before it started? No, I thought it would be worse than this.

7. And the worst (or the one that wasn't as good as the others)? Dubai.

1. Did you like the final leg?
It was a good leg. I did kind of miss the memory task, but there was still a good variety and lots of opportunities for shuffling order.

2. Are you happy with Colin and Christie victory?
Very much so!!

3. Did they deserve it?
Yes! They deserved it 15 years ago, and deserved it again this time.

4. Now that it's over, how do qualify the whole season?
It was decent. I wish the editing would focus on the travel more and less on the team drama (mainly Rachel/Elissa and Corrine/Eliza). The season got a lot better when they were both gone.

5. It was what you expected before it started?
It met my expectations

6. Which was the best leg for you?
Croatia leg was probably the best. The first Switzerland leg was also really good. Coincidentally, the Croatia leg featured airport shuffle, and Switzerland featured self-driving shuffle, 2 elements that were really lacking overall this year.

7. And the worst (or the one that wasn't as good as the others)?
Easily the premiere. That Japan leg was pretty dull, except for the Art/JJ injury drama. The second Swiss leg, with the U-turn vote, was also kind of a yawner.

8. Which moment was your favourite of the season?
Colin and Christie in the finale winning it all

9. Which one made you feel sad?
Chris and Brett bumbling their lead

10. Which one was the funniest?
Chris and Brett attempting the dance in Vietnam

11. Which moment was the most dramatic?
Probably the finish in London

12. And which one surprised/shocked you?
Art getting injured in Japan

13. Which team exceeded your expectations?
Victor and Nicole hung tough with the TAR teams.

14. And what team didn't fulfilled them?
Art and JJ should have done a lot better.

15. Finally, who was/were the MVP of the season? Why?
Definitely Colin and Christie. Amazing to see their transformation.

1. YES! The intense 2-way competition between Colin & Christie & Tyler & Korey through the entire leg lived up the episode.
2. I AM EXTREMELY HAPPY about that! Especially seeing the transformation of Colin, and these two calming each other down to earn them the win is like the greatest story ever on TAR history.
3. Yes! With their consistent racing performance and calming each other down constantly.
4. I will say this one ranked as one of my top 10 seasons (#6 - #10 alongside TAR7, TAR14, TAR26, TAR30).
5. No. It is far better than I have expected considering I don't know all the non-TAR teams, but I ended up liking Elissa and Corrine & Eliza  :conf:. I also expected to be annoyed by Tyler at the later half of the season like TAR28, but he is much more tolerable this time.
6. London. I love every single tasks of this leg. Split as a close second.
7. Switzerland 1. Poor leg design almost ruined the leg if it wasn't Rachel's drama.
8. Christie calmed Colin down in the final challenge to earn themselves the win  :conf:.
9. Rachel being eliminated  :'(
10. Corrine & Eliza nicknaming other teams even before the race started  :funny:
11. Corrine & Eliza's elimination
12. Rupert & Laura beat Art & JJ after being lost in a park for 2 hours  :groan:
13. Nicole & Victor, considering Victor literally carried Nicole throughout the entire racecourse with his strength (see Leg 10 cow hoisting detour)
14. Art & JJ, quitting a roadblock on leg 1 is never a smart choice
15. 1st : Colin, being calm and funny while never losing his competitiveness, 2nd : Victor, being single-handed most of the challenges, and the whole leg 10 all by himself
