    That was a good final. Two exciting legs. I really don't understand how Jason/Amy and Nicole/Travis managed to not get a penalty on that robot roadblock. The funny part is that they still didn't do it right. What happened, I think, with Nicole is that she probably is a goody-two shoes in really life and the Race allowed her to be devious for the first time and U-turning the Afghanimals was her downfall. She became too distracted by them to really focus on the race. Travis was a complete jerk to her during the robots. He was no help at all during any of the roadblocks she did.


    I wanted Tim and Marie to win, but I am satisfied with Jason and Amy. I liked them but they definitely didn't get enough screen time for winners. I don't think they are the best racers ever. Not even close. They fall in the middle of my winners ranking.


    1. Rachel and Dave


    2. Nick and Starr


    3. Bates and Anthony


    4. BJ and Tyler


    5. Nat and Kat


    6. Ernie and Cindy


    7. Megan and Cheyne


    8. Tammy and Victor


    9. Tyler and James


    10. Rob and Brennan


    11. Uchenna and Joyce


    12. Jason and Amy


    13. Chris and Alex


    14. Flo and Zach (well Zach should be #1 and Flo should be last if judging separately.)


    15. TK and Rachel


    16. Freddy and Kendra


    17. Chip and Kim


    18. Reichen and Chip


    19. Linz Family


    20. Eric and Danielle


    21. Kisha and Jen


    22. Dan and Jordan


    23. Josh and Brent


    Likability does play somewhat of a factor here but doesn't really affect the rankings too much. Interestingly, I think Tim and Marie continue the line of teams of exes who place second following Frank/Margarita, Tara/Wil and Ken/Tina

    Jason & Amy were just boring as hell - no story, no development over the course of the race, nothing unique about them...


    The only positive thing that can be said is that they were so boring it's impossible to hate them, because they literally did nothing, very much like TK & Rachel.

    2) Rob/Brennen


    3)Dave/Rachel


    4) Nick/Star


    5)Cheyne/Meghan


    6) BJ/Tyler


    7)Tyler/James


    8 Eric/Danielle (Eric/Deserves higher)


    9) Chris/Alex


    10) Linz


    11) Tammy/Victor


    12) Jason/Amy


    13) TK/Rachel


    14) Ernie/Cindy


    15) Nat/Kat


    16) Zach/Flo (Like you said Flo drops them)


    17) Richen/Chip


    18 Uchena/Joyce


    19) Chip/Kim


    20)Dan/Jordan


    21)Freddy/Kendra


    22) Kisha/Jen


    23) Brent/Josh


    I don't like the Afghanimls but they were robbed. Nichole did not complete the detour she did not say the entire quote. The entire episode I was expecting them to get a penalty at the matt.


    I didn't like the second leg much. It had no tension. But Tim/Marie cracked me up in both legs. "American Horror Story", "Trying to Injure me", "60/40" "Closest man." The entire season I was expecting Jason to propose. I prefer Tim/Marie but this was the second best out come. I love how the doctors fell apart the last few legs. Because Travis is the only reason they made it this far.


    The same thing occurred to me when they came in second and they all won three legs.

    For me...

    2. Kisha & Jen


    3. Nat & Kat


    4. Chip & Kim


    5. Meghan & Cheyne


    6. Rachel & Dave


    7. Uchenna & Joyce


    8. Josh & Brent


    9. TK & Rachel


    10. Nick & Starr


    Not bothered to rank anyone else since I can't stand any of them, although Linzes are more tolerable than the rest of the group...

    I think it's another one of those cases where it was edited out. I doubt the clue would be given if they didn't do it properly.

    OK First on your previous post. Does that mean you don't like Rob/Brennen or that you haven't seen the season?


    Nicole even said that she said "Welcome to Tokyo." and gave a big Smile. I think that is why The Afghanimls are coming back

    Ok I liked Rob and Brennan, Uchenna and Joyce, Chip and Kim, Bates and Anthony.

    Wow this isn't funny. But it's like Survivor usually I am disappointed with who wins and I can pick my own winner, like Jet and Cord on their first season (they were "bland" after that imo)

    They were always Bland in my opinion.


    What do you mean by the beginning of you second paragraph?

    I do the same thing so for me Rob is a 4 time survivor winner and a two time Race winner. Among others

    Wrong Answer Brett. I like Colin better. But I like Amber Better then Christie. I want Colin and Rob to run therace together. They are my 5th and 6th favorite teams

    Can't remotely stand either.


    But I wouldn't object to seeing either one cast again just because TAR needs to go back and bring back pre All Star teams...
