Congratulations to

Brendon & Jackson! Close finish, but the Super Sikhs really lost it for themselves by not takin the chairlift.


Honestly I would have been happy for any of this final 3 winning. The final challenge was something new, normally the eliminated teams are just there to stand and cheer. They were actually involved in it 🙂
 
I wonder if this means even they didn't know who won for sure.

So that's it, 24 episodes and we're finished. What a season! Gonna keep this short... for me, this on a whole, is right up there with S2! Probably my favourite Winners since Uchenna & Joyce, so I'm kinda biased. Lol

I only had 2 issues, and they're both kinda small. Firstly, for such a long, epic race, the Finish Line was so lackluster. This was definitely a Season where we needed all the teams cheering on our teams running to the finish. And secondly, it was shame 3 teams, Jobelle & Rani, Malaan & Tina, Jordan & Violetta, weren't there at the end. That's my OCD kicking in though, I always like to see all the teams back together for one final big group shot, which we never got.  :'( :funny: Wonder if there was a reason for them not being there?  :duno:

They weren't there? The eliminated teams got a good amount of screentime but I guess I didn't pick everyone out.

@NMC, all three of those teams are from Victoria, I believe, which was among the tougher states with regards to COVID-19 restrictions- hence why TARAU couldn't film there at all. Since they were eliminated early and not sequestered, perhaps they couldn't cross state borders again?

Great and intense finale!

I'm happy with the final standings after all.
The Cowboys were amazing at this final.

The girls deserved a big round of applause for their incredible performance all throughout, all well as the Sihks and their big hearts!

It's been a long and crazy season, and glad that we were able to get a competitive finish.

The Fliteboard task was a difficult starting task.
Crazy that the wind nearly tripped up a team in the flag task.
Annoying that the second Roadblock was first come, first serve, but at least it was short.
The slip and slide task was a bit random for the finale.
Interesting to see the eliminated teams as part of the final task and made sense that a season that emphasized indigenous Australians in welcomes and greeters would have that as part of the final task.
The final hike was also a grueling way to award $250,000, and it made a close final sprint.

Congratulations to Brendon & Jackson.  :conf:


Despite a few gripes, this was an enjoyable season and a step up from the previous one.

Current ranking: 2 > 1 > 5 > 3 > 4

Finale Thoughts

What a way to end the season! Contestants needing to ride a Fliteboard while dressed in a High Court judge uniform in the filthy Lake Burley Griffin was hilarious to watch and teams getting annoyed while continuing to loose balance and fall into the water was added entertainment. The Australian & Aboriginal flag building on the lawn of Parliament House was a little boring to watch, but it was quite entertaining when the Cowboys built the Australian flag upside down!  :lol: :funny:. I'm going to kill the editors for not including the typewriter Gough Whitlam task in the House of Representatives and deciding to include the second Roadblock at Lake Crackenback, which was the most boring Roadblock this season! The slip and slide at Friday Flat looked extremely fun and I was jealous of the teams completing! The weird laws task at Eagles Nest was funny to watch all of Australia's bizarre laws and completing the Aboriginal Australian mob map was harder than it looked! Finally, the race to the Finish Line atop the highest point in Australia was intense and even gave me altitude sickness! Congratulations to the Cowboys for pulling off a thrilling win!

Malaan & Tina, Jordan & Violeta and Jobelle & Rani couldn't make it to the finale at Mount Mount Kosciuszko, due to New South Wales banning visitors from Victoria on November 14, when the finale was filmed! :)

A better task would have been, other than not having the completed map below the puzzle, but have teams actually identify where on the map each of the Aboriginal mobs they met during the Race are located.

Very disappointed that the typewriter task that was spoiled was cut.

Source to what the task was + Sighting: https://oztypewriter.blogspot.com/2020/11/ive-been-usingtypewriters-in-various.html

It appeared to be one of the hardest tasks of the finale by having this likely be before or after the map puzzle, and then all of that was undone by a sign up sheet  :groan:

In one of the post finale videos posted on the 10 you tube channel either Brendon or Jackson stated that the girls arrived at the final pit stop about 55 minutes after them. Clearly the camera angle down the mountain was deceptive making it seem closer than what it was.

Edited to note time was METERS not MINUTES. -peach

This is an error. It was NOT 50 minutes but 50 METERS.
BIG difference and makes the actual distance between ever so much closer!!
