Love the recaps!

Quick question for you guys: Do you know how far behind the blonde sisters were in leg 4? The edit made it looked close but we know they were a few hours behind Gary/De'Angelo.  And they didn't show their start time at the start of leg 5!

I don't think it's fair to blame one team for the alliance, all 5 teams are part of it and are as responsable for what happened.

Alliances have been part of the Amazing race since season 1, but I do think this is the most 'extreme' exemple we ever had.

The alliancing happening this season reminds me starkly of Aaron & Arianne's hunt against Derek & Drew back in season 3, except the one we are seeing now has almost a guarding approach that plays out like they have strong vendettas against these other teams.

It's weird that they'll dedicate so much energy to hiding information and helping each other while DeAngelo & Gary remain oblivious but won't have the guts to Yield them. Both teams were in a position to Yield them twice.

As best as I can recall, the Mine Five alliance was the first long term alliance, especially of that size, they’ve ever had on TAR. Point number one. Teams that were in that area of the mine back in leg 2 was as far as I can tell, happenstance, but those there took advantage of the time and circumstances and most importantly, it wasn’t against any rules. It just happened these were mostly the strongest teams this season and they made it work and are the Final Five teams.

Sometimes great gameplay is boring. (BB 22 is an example of that.) Sometimes alliance members generally keep their word. With the Final Five being all but secured, it would make sense that three of them would make a successor alliance. Again, not against the rules. The common element of all of this is that Will and James did a precise job on studying the rules and seeing what they could do with it. It may be different than other seasons, but pulling this off within the game rules is within the rules, so I have to reward the ingenuity involved. (Not any different than some of the stuff Boston Rob pulled in season 7 especially with being known outside the US during filming and using that.) It wasn’t against the rules.

This is not a terrible season, it was well casted, the locations and tasks have been excellent IMHO, and it is the second consecutive excellent season in a row, especially with rolling the game back to a much earlier era.

Agreed, I gotta admit that they studied the race well and use it for their advantage. they would know that alliance, when done right, can move them further.

Their pick to ally with the stronger teams seemed off putting first, but it brought them so far (the very example of that was RB in germany), had they allied with Cajun sisters and the blondes, it would have been a very different story. They knew the risk of ally with the stronger teams especially at the penultimate and final leg, but I would assume that they believed they could beat them.

W/J might not be the greatest team ever raced, but this is the example of studying and researching the race could bring you further, and they use it effectively; they are rather effectively strategical racers

Strategic racers take out threats not people who were last for a majority of the season.

They got Leo and Alana taken out on the previous leg. The kept their alliance (and their goal of Final Five) intact on this leg. You might not like alliances like this, I might not like alliances like this, but it’s beyond dispute that it worked. Now, it’s a different alliance for final three, presumably. So I’ll see how that works. But it doesn’t distract from the gameplay within the rules that Will/James came up with. If production was bothered by it, they’ll change the rules.

I agree 100% with you, and I think in the end, if they win, some people will value their win as less, because of all the help they got. So yes it's smart, and if they win the money they won't care, but they will be remembered for a team needing the help of other teams to win (even if they are a good team on their own and would have done as good as they have, I believe).

For us the alliance made the t.v experience not as fun (especially in leg 6 and the roadblock in leg 4 and 8/9) but for them it worked, it's just that they will have to pay a price with the fans, and as super fan themselves, they may be a bit sad about it. I personally like them and think they are good racers, but I guess it would have been more fun without the alliance.

The whole topic of whether W/J making a good or strategic move to yield H/K is definitely debatable, and I can see that, generally you want to take out the stronger teams and leave out with they consider a weaker teams.

I've seen some of the worst strategy of teams using the power play (yield and/or U-Turn) and what they did imo is far from worse; it's rather logical if not the wisest. Most of the 'slowing the stronger team's strategy are when they knew that the power play was the last power play to use (Like Chip/Kim yielding Colin and Christie in S5, Twinnies strategy in s21, or Leo & Jamal u-turning the cowboys in s24), this season wasn't the case. There still a U-Turn in play on the next leg, so they would rather to use it for the team that had the least chance to survive and surely knew that that team were in last, so they would be eliminated without having a chance to retaliate by u-turning them on the next leg. Yielding NFL team wouldnt a wise choice either because they were still in the part of the alliances, and not only it would break the promise of the alliance, they would also have a motive to target W/J for retaliation.  they also have bigger chance to survive even had they yielded them, and in some instances, they surpassed them at some instances of the race. Like I said it's not the best move or the most strategical play, but it's rather logical given the circumstances

Congrats for the engagement  :2hearts:

Maybe a little rude, but I wonder why you guys needed to wait (supposed to be) almost two years. Was it because TAR thingy, or because wedding plannings that you feel like the best to do on that date, if you don't mind to answer?

Congrats guys! And since you're superfans, here's a random fact that not even the biggest of superfans might now:

Did you know that you're only the second team in TAR history (in the American version anyway) where one team member's initials are the inverse of the others? The only other team you share this with is super obscure lol, it was Matt Davis and Daniel Moss from season 22, they were firefighters who were eliminated first because they were last of the three teams that quit the sandcastle challenge!

They have explained the wait in some media interviews and social media since last night. They gave vague explanations about the engagement to their families and friends because of the gag rule in contestant NDAs. From what both of them have said. their families and friends more or less figured it out, but they couldn’t confirm anything until it aired. The had planned originally to have the wedding this past fall, but postponed it due to COVID-19 until this coming March.
