  • You raced a good season blondes! SORRY I GAVE IT A TEN YOU GUYS ARE RANKING IT SO LOW ITS BRINGING DOWN THE AVERAGE!!!

    Ok i know this was not a good finale.

    The winner was basically decided on your taxi driver and travel time!

    No challenges were hard at all

    WHERE WAS THE MEMORY CHALLENGE AMAZING RACE I MEAN SERIOUSLY



    CONGRATS BLONDES TEAMM #2, you guys raced so well good job



    Just because the finale was bad doesn't mean to season was bad. I loved this season (mostly because of the blondes), but it was such an entertaining season

    Exepct the challenges weren't that great tbh, BUT I LOVVVEEDD THE CASTTT and the drama was at a great level as wellmoreless
  • Season 24 is done - Please God, don't bring any of those people back again...

    4.0
    First, I'll admit it: I'm tired of the producers continuing infatuation with the so called "fan favorites" - I want new faces, so seeing they chose to bring some teams back for a *third time* was not a good start to the season in my opinion - bringing back multiple teams from the very last season made it even worse.



    I promised myself that I'd stop watching if I heard those two harpies screech "TWINNEEEEE" more than two episodes in a row. I got lucky.



    That, and the good humor of both the Cowboys and Afghanimals were the only high points for the entire season for me.



    I guess hearing Dave whinge and cry about the Brenchel duo having the BLATANT AUDACITY to U-Turn him turned me off. That he continued his little tirade and repeated his disgust over and over was nothing buy petty. Proof that age has no bearing on maturity whatsoever. That poor, hard done by Dave and Connor in turn immediately U-turned the Afghanimals without a moment of remorse or question of "running a clean game" was telling.



    That the Afghanimals didn't whine and bitch about being U-turned is even more telling and speaks to a level of character absent in the $1million winning team.



    The only person I was actually happy to see return was Mallory, and she was paired with a partner who placed the loss of a backpack of higher importance than a 1 in 12 chance at winning $1,000,000.00.



    No, I don't hope to see her on the show again either. For season 25, all I want is to see new people compete; hopefully without any professional athletes to act as "ringers".



    Did I mention I don't ever want to see those twins again? Seriously - never, ever again.moreless
  • Why can't I score it less than one?

    1.0
    please allow me to score lower than one - a score of one is far too great a compliment.



    We decided who would win TAR based on who could put light bulbs into a socket!!! Who needs a suspenseful challenge? Who needs to have a memory task? Why would you need any of that when you could stick bulbs into holes!!!



    Anyway, I'm not even going to get started on those winners because I won't stop. This season has been so mediocre and the awful winners to boot means that this is easily in my Bottom 2 seasons with 19.



    I have little hope of anything good being produced by TAR anymore. Goodbyemoreless
  • not going to spoil the winner here

    7.0
    brenchel: whiny bitchy and crying and moaning and oooh they said that cos we did this and if even if we didn't they'd know about it.. if they do ever have kids poor little blighter gonna need lifetime then trying to play nasty ? hypocrites ! oh and brendon is not looking as excited about the generally being stupid oh yeah normal for swear i never want to hear of them ever ...



    dave n another mention of the achilles getting all whiny n bitchy and worrying over his son being in a beyond that they seem to play straight and get the job done.



    country girls : leaving the box in the car, and then wondering how to get it open,, once again adding fuel to the dumb blonde stereotype well done :) how did they get to the bulb task first ?! WAT...



    david copperfield MUST BE DESPERATE the biggest phoney in yeah i hate him...



    first task: go to las vegas and get in car can you call it a task ?

    second: dig for an unknown item



    third: use the box contents to get out of a 'magic trick' can i say this was BADLY STAGED no one seemed to genuinely react at all it was so you just dropped the box they were in and you just go 'oh' nothing.... then they turn up and it's like oh there you are... FAIL.



    fourth: go to a sign/box take a bulb and then go to the mirage and then replace light the side high up (brenchel being clueless has irony)



    5th: roadblock?? now ??? get in a chopper and give a correct destination and then land on the mat. soo close and so far !



    the winners : losers screaming when they don't know who it is ?? for me best result possible ;)



    overall an underwhelming final leg spoiled by brenchels shrieking and constant baby talk and playing dirty when they seemed to condemn other teams for it, spoiled by the bad acting at the box escape, bad editing again, oh and did i mention i hate david copperfield ?
