I remember meat head saying its been about 4 hours, I would be going nuts being the one sitting around waiting.

The "low hanging fruit" won. So glad. Wanted either them or the surfers to win it. Not team whiny nor team toothy.

It's ironic that all the other teams disregarded the Candy Girls to allow them to progress into the finals because they were no threat. The cyclists told them about the earlier flight because they knew they could beat them and then were eliminated on that leg. And Brooke complaining about letting them into the finale was pretty poor. If the wrestlers weren't so inept at navigating, they might have had a shot. Don't complain about the Candy Girls. They didn't get lost.

Even if the wrestlers made the final three, I think they still would have come in third. Considering that Robbie planned on doing the stunt challenge, that meant that Brooke would have had to do the container challenge. No way she would have beaten Misty or Bethany at that.


Speaking of Bethany, damn she is bouncy!
Not that I mind in the least, but she really should have invested in better bras for running.

When Bethany by default had to do the container challenge, I pretty much knew they were done .. even she admitted she was not the brains of the team .. sad, but the Surfers were a class act up to the bitter end .. they remain one of my favorite Teams ever to run it ..

There are a couple of teams who might be candidates to appear on a future all-stars season.

The wrestlers might be because hateful reality show personalities often draw ratings. But they've reportedly broken up.

The surfers are inspiring and nice people in general (though they seemed to resent Amy and Maya being in the final leg as much as the others) but they're kind of boring.

Bicyclists deserve another shot but not sure they are notable.

I heard one verbal shot .... Fatigue and frustration can get the best of all of us .. I did not find them boring at all .. and other handicapped folks would, I feel certain, be anything but bored with them ..

Enjoyed the season. Bikers were really dumb getting themselves eliminated. Note to future teams - when you're in the lead don't go for the Express Pass!

The Express Pass is a gamble no matter what position you're in. If the challenge didn't happen to be a surfing one where the Surfers had an advantage, the Cyclists might have finished before them. As a matter of fact, most of the times, the team in the lead is the one that's going to go for the EP because the other teams won't risk trying it because they know the first team is going for it. I don't think the surfers would have gone for it if it wasn't a surfing challenge. I wonder if the producers incorporated that challenge in there hoping that the surfers would go for it? Too bad it wasn't a cycling challenge.
