Eyal & Sid have been bothering me the past couple of legs because they started mocking teams for failing to get them out with Yields, so I was the least invested in them making the finale of the four teams. I'm very excited for this final 3, and I'm hoping for a good finale.

How did Itzhak not know where Haviv was born when they share the same birthplace?  :funny:
The filipina host did not believe in the twin psychic link.  :funny:

haven't watched the ep yet, but based on wiki that last task wasn't that bad? 2 of the 4 incorrect landmarks were within walking distance from the amusement park and the other 2 were within 5 kms of the amusement park, and all 4 were generally quickly navigable without having to venture into the more traffic-infested roads as long as you were able to keep your taxi
I'm baaaaaack!

theoretically yes, but based on what we have seen in previous seasons, it could have deeeeeeeeeefinitely been far worse so I'm not complaining :duno: *especially* since the luck task saved who are easily the best team left

Are the spoilers just about the Wednesday episode?  Helps to indicate what spoiler comments may refer to.

Anyway on the Wednesday episode and the last few.

Sid and Eyal really have had the worst luck with taxis on this race, several times being shown to have drivers who didn't know the location to go to.  I was so relieved they beat Nisim and Orel who were definitely lucky several times.  I generally didn't like the boot order on this (right from the injury at the start), and Tali and Gili basically helped Nisim/Orel survive by not paying attention in the luck task.  Luck hasn't really favoured teams I've liked on this race and even when it did there they there they couldn't take advantage. 

Monday last week I had no idea what the talk about credit cards was as the episode hadn't been uploaded.  As it's normally prompt I assumed there hadn't been a Monday episode.  Maybe it would be good to have a weekly schedule on when episodes are during seasons, as some versions definitely have variation at points.

I was wondering in the last few legs how many of these tasks are actually related to the culture of the local area.  And in China there was quite a strange leg where it looked like it was more a comedy than a race, with the dance/singing task (obviously meant to be judged very leniently) and some tv shopping task where they just seemed to fool around.  I still didn't find the twins funny, they may find Chinese a funny language, but I find their brand of humour very unfunny. 

The good thing was that most of the tasks on the race weren't easy and teams didn't appear to help each other.  If they did it wasn't shown that I could tell.  The yields may have shown alliances but could have just been teams following whoever other teams were yielding so they wouldn't get the most votes themselves.

One thing I really missed in this was navigation, not taxi luck although they rarely focused on the taxis even.  Sometimes it just seemed like one task after another, and the transport/navigation in between was just the boring bit that should be skipped over.  It was quite a shock in one leg when we saw Ariel and Karin running around trying to find somewhere, actual race drama that wasn't related to a task but to contestants actually having to find somewhere.

The luck tasks have obviously added drama but at the same time made it a lottery.  And as with lotteries it seems you rarely win, and I didn't with these.  The possibility was dangled that a certain team would go out before the finale, but of course it didn't happen.  The last luck task reminded me of another version, possibly the Canadian one, where teams had to find a large sign.  But it turned out this sign was in two different places and only one was the actual pit stop.  I don't like to spoil other seasons so just to say on that

It turned out it was a non-elimination leg, as legs dependent on luck should be.


I know which team I don't want to win.  I don't mind the other two, though the edit seemingly making out that Tia and Fay were beset by villains who they had to valiantly fight against has annoyed me.  One of the best things about them for foreign viewers is that they do speak more English than anyone else.  It was interesting to see in their family segment that they had far fewer people, indicating further how they are different from all the others left.

Hello, I'm an Israeli new discoverer of the forum :)
I've read some of this ongoing discussion in the past. I kind of regret that I didn't register to here before, because I had (and still have) a lot to say about a lot of things that have happened in this season.
I want to know what you think about the teams and the tasks, because I think that this things haven't been discussed here that much (especially the teams).
But this question is too general, and so I had to find something that will summarize (well, sort of summarize) what I think.

The best thing I found is the questions on "The Golden Envelope Ceremony 2019" (the litteraly translation of "2019 טקס מעטפת הזהב")
This is a survey that Reshet 13 posted on thier website.
Link: https://13tv.co.il/item/mood/the-amazing-race/season-07/self/ww74j-1065817/

Here are the questions (translated by me) in the order they appear:
1. Who is the most complaining team? | ?מי הזוג הכי מתלונן
2. Who is the most sportic team? | ?מי הזוג הכי ספורטיבי
3. Who had the best realationship? | ?למי הייתה את הזוגיות הכי טובה
4. Who is the most groomed team? | ?מי הזוג הכי מטופח
5. Who is the funniest team? | ?מי הזוג הכי מצחיק
6. Who is the most strategist team? | ?מי הזוג הכי אסטרטג
7. Who is the most competitive team? | ?מי הזוג הכי תחרותי
8. Who is the bravest team? | ?מי הזוג הכי אמיץ
9. Who would you like to be friends with in reality? | ?עם איזה זוג הייתם רוצים להיות חברים במציאות
10. Who is the most nagging team? | ?מי הזוג הכי חופר

There is also a survey of The Most Beloved Team, also on Reshet 13's website.
Link: https://13tv.co.il/item/mood/the-amazing-race/season-07/self/xorci-1065137/

I will post what I answered and will explain why I answered what I answered.

I tried my best with the translations and with my English, sorry for any mistakes.

Aha! Kind of the superlative awards or some sorts (that's why it's general).
I haven't voted there yet, but I already voted for the Fan Favorite thing.

Bruchim habaim shel RFF!
And as someone who watched three-fourth of the season (I haven't got into the leg 11 part 3 yet but I wanna know why by watching), first of all I'm glad on the episode pace–it's back to the season 2-ish when there were like 20+ eps instead of 40+ back in season 6. I mean, if they really wanna show a bit detailed on the process or idk how to say it, this pace is enough (or like season 5 but they took... 35-ish eps). The teams, they have their own characters (and uniquities in a way?), but I agree with most (or several) people here that even if in the end not all eliminations are purely luck (eg sooner or later with or without a luck task several teams could just be eliminated there, or there are several mishaps happened to them after that task idk), but the prevalence of it in near the Pit Stop really bothers–as if it all came down to that task instead of previous seasons while not all near Pit Stop tasks ended up with luck, or 'What's the point of being skillful?'

If you guys can add or modify things from this it'll be great! I'm trying to summarize what has been discussed here though.

The luck tasks have obviously added drama but at the same time made it a lottery.  And as with lotteries it seems you rarely win, and I didn't with these.  The possibility was dangled that a certain team would go out before the finale, but of course it didn't happen.  The last luck task reminded me of another version, possibly the Canadian one, where teams had to find a large sign.  But it turned out this sign was in two different places and only one was the actual pit stop.  I don't like to spoil other seasons so just to say on that

Regarding the Pit Stop, idk why I also reminded to the second Namibian leg of HMLM 5?
They played a catapult of 5 possible Pit Stops, if you're accurately throwing it to the picture of them you'll get a clue to that certain Pit Stop, but one of them is the real one. So if they couldn't find Sir Shahar, they need to go back play that catapult until they got the right Pit Stop.

(The thing I remember was a team walked while another team took a taxi there back then? Oh welp. That might be a different thing but I suddenly remember that one, excuse my memory.)

And regarding luck tasks that point makes sense as well... looked like a lottery.
Now that tonight IDT is the season finale, I hope it's a combination of being skillful and a bit of luck as well. I remembered the season 6 final task thing (thanks to that task it added to my Israeli music collection as well), hope it's like that (I mean the combination, the task could be different).

My favorite thing about the HaMerotz 6 finale was that the only team that screwed up the final task based on Israeli music was the team with a famous Israeli singer on it...and I couldn't stand them lol

My wishlist of the final task is still the same, the combination for being skillful and a little bit of luck, let's say like the HMLM 6 one–or if it is a maze and self-drive ending like HMLM 5, they could just show the whole self-driving process or is it just me who didn't get it back then...

What a season this has been. This is the first season I've been watching in full, I love this pace of airing, that's not bad for showing TAR at a detail, but please I love these kind of riddles way better than the actual pot luck ones (albeit the elimination cause, some of it, was not the task, but other factors as we see it).

A great end to a very lackluster series. I'm glad they at least managed to go out on a high note. I was cheering for these two from the very beginning. It's especially gratifying to see them win because, back in leg 1, I accidentally saw something that I THOUGHT was a spoiler saying they would be eliminated, so I was sort of just waiting and waiting for it to happen. But then they won, so it's like wow!

I shouldn't be surprised that Tia & Fay won given that someone somewhere else pointed out that they had a MASSIVE winner's edit, but I saw a comment on Instagram a while back saying something like "not to spoil, but the Mamans (Haviv & Itzhak) won." And given how I was spoiled on Evelin & Tohar's win via Instagram comment as well, I assumed it was right and was ready to be disappointed that Tia & Fay wouldn't win even though they had a lead, just like with Daniel & Eliyahu last season. But THEY WON AND I WAS SO HAPPY. Honestly? Tia & Fay are now my favorite HaMerotz team of all time. Before I kept flip-flopping between Daniel & Eliyahu and Josie & Alex, but both disappointingly came up short in the end. Tia & Fay were already in my top 5 or even top 3, but them winning catapulted them right to the top.

No wonder why they grew on me as well from the start to the finish of the Race. And for me, they're also one of my fave teams this season (along with Ariel & Karin and Eyal & Sid, but my support to the latter began to lower or something after Tia & Fay survived that NEL, enjoyed seeing Gili & Tali as well!).
