There was a rather dark yet hilarious moment during the finale when Ariel & Karin were sitting on the side after constantly failing the first task and Ariel was trying to convince Karin that she could hold the rope by saying something like "pretend the rope is a baby," and Karin was like, "then the baby will die!" Keep in mind last episode we found out Karin wants to have five kids...

Btw if you didn't know, that final challenge at Trump Tower Manila was a reference to when a crazy dude climbed up the New York Trump Tower using those same suction cup things. It was a huge police incident and he was arrested.

Omg thanks for pointing that out! My understanding was completely scattered, idk I wasn't too concentrating at that point maybe due to me watching live at 2am here or is it just me. That's dark for sure.

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

If you picked the wrong place you also had to go back and redo the task, delaying more.


finale

Show content
Anyway not much of a surprise about the winners and I was ok with it.  The best part was the team finishing 3rd not winning.  I was a bit puzzled by how it played out though.  Clearly Tia and Fay had a decent lead, but that all evaporated with the plane to Israel?  I'm assuming they kept to some kind of gaps as they left the plane.  The editing obviously showed them all at the boxes together, but were Tia and Fay just way in the lead anyway?  If they didn't keep to some gaps it made all the previous part of the leg in the Philippines pointless.  Tough leg for Karin but she persevered.  Working out a riddle is obviously much better than just guessing the location from a choice already given to teams.  Nice to see some of the other teams again, but disappointed not to see them mixing at the end.

Tia & Fey were shown hopping into a cab ahead of the other two when leaving Ben Gurion. The show was edited to make the teams closer together than they probably actually were, but it's clear to see that T&F did have a time advantage when leaving the airport, considering they were probably around a half hour to an hour ahead after their domination of the climbing task. It's likely they did exactly what they did in season 6, recording time differences when teams picked up the clue directing them to Israel, but for some reason just didn't explain it this season. It might be because T&F were so far ahead, it would've killed the suspense if they directly brought up the time differences.

EDIT:

Show content
I just perused the spoiler thread, and it was said that it took T&F about 3 hours to climb up Trump Tower. We can see in the show itself that they were almost finished by the time H&I and K&A get started on the task, so T&F had to be around 3 hours ahead when they got the clue directing them to Israel. Last season they showed the time differences on-screen, but showing T&F being 3 hours ahead would have definitely killed the drama, so they edited things to make it closer for sure

I just realized that the final 3 here is pretty much the same as the final 3 of HaMerotz 2: an all-female team, two brothers, and a religious couple.

in both seasons, the all-female team won. Just the second and third place that differs.

If there’s a way to watch the season of HaMerotz with English subtitles, I’d love to see it. I don’t understand much Hebrew.

this was a kinda disappointing finale? pretty much my main issues with the season were all on full display in this finale, with only the best team of the Final 3 winning to alleviate it; idk, the season was a ride from start to finish but this was a flat final note
I'm baaaaaack!

So there’s a moment in the reunion episode that I sincerely hope I misheard...I think Eden said she and Aviad have been married for nine years. Based on how long ago their pre-race footage was filmed, she’s 24/25, he’s 38/39. If you do the math...yikes.

So scary to see Karin at the concert when the missile attack happened. So glad she's okay.

...and how exactly eating a bowl of tofu factors into that. Does eating the bowl 'replace' one necklace?

If teams wish to not make the necklace, they must eat the stinky tofu.

I have a question for you, since the finale is airing on Sunday: did people in Israel get tired of how long the last few seasons were? Because this season is significantly shorter than seasons 4-6 that all had around 40 episodes.
Please converts some ARI tasks into Detour & Roadblock, in first two seasons there were 10 RBs & 10 Detours for each

I do agree! There are some Roadblock and Detour-worthy tasks instead of just keeping it as Route Info. Moreover, I thought they saved the (even) harder ones for Roadblocks and Detours until I saw there were like only 2 RBs and even 2 Detours (wait there's this one Route Info that should've been a Detour, unless it's like picking 1/4, like in Vietnam 6 if I'm not mistaken).
