Natalia finds the right balance of speed and accuracy. Penn finds this is a vision test which he has very poor attributes over and decides to turn this into a marathon where he is just throwing out a bunch of numbers. Arun & Natalia leave the murals in last.

Raquel & Cayla still driving in a tired expression while Ryan & Dusty find the correct route.

Penn is continuously guessing while Raquel & Cayla arrive at the sanctuary. Cayla finds this difficult, but ends up getting 106, the correct number, on the first try! Wow! :o

Penn recounts with a steady rhythm and in groups, also getting it correct right after. They leave in 2nd.

Ryan & Dusty arrive at the sanctuary.

Raquel & Cayla look around for the lighthouse. Kim & Penn see them in the distance and want to catch up.

And.... RAQUEL & CAYLA are the first team to arrive at the mat. They are officially TEAM NUMBER ONE! They win a trip for two to St. Lucia. (Wait, I thought they forgot their Route Info clue? ???)

Raquel & Cayla are speechless and are excited for the journey back to the States. KIM & PENN arrive just behind and are TEAM NUMBER TWO!

Meanwhile, Arun & Natalia still finding their way to the sanctuary and Dusty is still counting doubles.

Commercials.

Ngl loved the second rb, because it is not only to show how good you are at counting but how good you are at organizing your count and have a perspective of it

We return to the perspective challenge with Dusty trying another attempt. 103 - incorrect.

Natalia leading the way while Dusty goes for another attempt. 106 - correct!

They leave to the lighthouse in 3rd. They arrive on the mat and are officially TEAM NUMBER THREE. "We are going to be savages next leg." - Dusty

Natalia does the RB and starts counting columns. Her first attempt is correct and they proceed to the Pit Stop. They arrive and are the LAST TEAM to arrive. They have unfortunately been eliminated from the race a second time. They are proud of each other and Phil recognizes their courage.

Arun & Natalia will continue to keep growing.

We get a montage of the final three teams - Kim & Penn, Raquel & Cayla, and Ryan & Dusty all get mini pre-game memories of their previous legs.

Teams leaving Portugal via charter to their final destination, Los Angeles, California! Phil makes a cheesy flight attendant announcement with Raquel & Cayla staring at him endearingly. Okay.

The plane leaves and we leave to commercials.

I'm sure 4th place was who many of us were expecting. No more NEL's.

I liked Arun and Natalia because they were super fans but they made so many mistakes. Why did they value accuracy over speed when they were last? Clearly the weakest team, so probably best they didn’t advance.

I have to admit I’d be out on the first leg, so who am I to criticize?

Coming back to the season finale arriving in the U.S.A., we start the race at a helipad of Westin Bonaventure. Teams must locate a clue box on one of the three cylinders and spot the combination on the elevator to unlock the box and receive their next clue.

Kim & Penn and Ryan & Dusty start searching with no luck while Raquel & Cayla see the elevator code. They unlock the box and must travel to El Pueblo de L.A. Kim & Penn also get the clue by looking at the elevator. Meanwhile, Ryan & Dusty decide to ride the elevator.

Raquel & Cayla and Kim & Penn get directions to the Old Plaza.

Ryan & Dusty don't see s--- up on the elevator. :lol: They don't know what to do. Kim & Penn notice the bros had a clue in their hands, but realize they were still searching. Ryan & Dusty are completely lost on what to do. They get to another tower and see the padlock's already opened. Pressure is starting to set.

Commercials.

Self-driving in a final leg? When's the last time this happened?! Always wondered about the fairness of leaving a team's win in the hands of taxi drivers.

Guess this is one upside to filming the race during a pandemic.

So our major live sighting was from the leg start. Neat.
So the TAR Charter just eliminated a major racer strategy which is dropping the bag, to go through the final leg lighter, they have to go through the final leg with their backpacks...

We come back to Ryan & Dusty frantically looking for their code. Meanwhile, Kim & Penn see the clue while Raquel & Cayla are right behind.

ROUTE INFO: Teams must smash open pinatas to find three parts of a clue. One team member must be blindfolded while the other has to be the caller and direct their partner to break open three specific figures.

This is fun! :lol: Both starting to hit the pinatas with Penn flinging one into outer space / the other side of the park.

Dusty & Ryan FINALLY get the code to go to the plaza.

Raquel and Penn both have to smash the taco pinatas with both having the same strategy of grabbing the clues afterward instead of holding everything at once blindly.

Dusty is frustrated and still driving to the location. Both Kim & Penn and Raquel & Cayla are giving good leadership and communication efforts. Raquel & Cayla get all parts of their clue.

ROUTE INFO: Drive to Sunset Boulevard and find SIR Hollywood to pick up the next clue.

Kim & Penn still looking for a donkey.

Nothing stopping a team from dumping their bags at the Westin's lost-and-found, making a run for it, and retrieving their belongings after the race.  :funny:

Penn starts smashing open a donkey pinata, but no clue is inside. Kim is laying down on the ground and Penn just knows she is struggling with this task and wants to comfort her. They realize they may need to smash open all the pinatas at one point.

The smashing task is a very good task! Nothing is better than testing the harmony and cooperation between the partners at the finale.

Just joining the fun. Had a cup game today. Loved the girls winning the Portugal leg.

I guess there's no other solution than hit them all.

I want to like Ryan & Dusty, but oof, the term "meatheads" applies to them when it comes to tasks that aren't physical. They've made such simple mistakes.
