Yeah, they really milked it, too! I think the first mention of heading to meet Phil was only something like 30 minutes into the episode. Then we had to watch Krista swim around over and over when it seemed like it should have been easy enough. I guess that's easy to say watching from the sofa.

Really hoping someone other than Green Team can pull out the win. Nothing against the girl - but the guy is just so over the top annoying.

Looks like teleportation doesn’t work in China.

Hot girl stupidity on the other hand, works every time!

As I think back to early on this season, and with fond memories of the "White Bikini" challenge, it is with great sadness that I bid Krista and Tiffany farewell, they ran a passionate race and I was at least happy they got as far as they did .. now that my favorite Team is out, my support shifts to Joey and Kelsey ..

At first the Green time was the most annoying to us. Now, it has to be the Paparazzi. I hope the reporters win it!

Well, I did not know the rules for cabs, open season even if you pay them to be yours.

Good on Joey and Kelsey ... that last leg was a beast from the way it looked .. I was expecting the usual Big Brain challenge at the end, but the way they broke it up was kind of nice ..

Best thing is that tool Justin didn't win.

And blubbered about it.

I enjoyed seeing Justin in tears. A taxi, a gosh darned taxi. That paltry $100 he mentioned verses winning one million dollars will bug him the rest of his life. BTW, the first rule of Amazing Race Club is to nail down your taxi.

The thing about him I most disliked was the dominate/passive relationship with his partner. He treated her like dirt. I think she should dump him.

Yes to all the above .. and I'll add .. Justin crowing about New York being the Last Leg and how they had it in the bag was the icing on the cake .. and I do feel sorry for her as well ..

He improved his behavior towards her after the first time (or two) he blew up at her, there was growth there.

He was annoying but I didn't hate him and I wouldn't have minded so much if they had won. Especially for her sake. She's a teacher and seems like a giving person in that regard so some of the money might have been spent in service of her students.

I for one thought the photog couple were a hoot all along. They got after each other like lions vs hyenas but amazingly, always managed to come back together without seeming to build up higher & higher piles of resentments towards each other.

Although home turf didn't seem to matter, I wish they wouldn't have the last legs in places people are from. This isn't the first time they have done it either. On the flip side, when the team loses thats from there, it does make you happy in some cases, this being one of them.

Apparently CBS posted a bunch of extra videos.

Here the racers talk about the taxi situation on the mat:


Logan says they could have taken the taxi and won first place.

But apparently they did very poorly on the flag challenge so it wouldn't have mattered, except maybe the Green team might have been more even when the lobster challenge started.

Such a small mistake (Not paying your cab to wait) cost them the million. What a shame. Just glad the paparazzi team didn't win.

Missed the finale when it aired, but watched it last night online (I had already read spoilers, oops). Happy with the outcome. Thought some of the comments by and about the paparazzi couple were pretty darn funny. Phil saying something like "You guys often don't seem.... compatible" and then the woman saying maybe they should go to therapy.... awkward!

I have this unsettling feeling we'll see the Green Team again on reality TV.

Oh and I forgot "Which one of these is the flag of Africa?". Ugh.

I admire the network's discipline for waiting a solid two whole months before kicking off the next season.

The wife and I already decided we're skipping this season. We have no desire to see these self-absorbed Internet "celebrities" trying to survive without their precious online lives.

Who says they'll be without their online lives? They did livestream a part of the first episode when they were filming it a few months back...

That said, I'm reserving judgment until the first or second episode airs. Then again, Survivor's looking to be a good season...

Holding the fort on old games that play the same as the new ones, minus the $400 price tag.
