I was praying that Brooke would have to do the bike challenge because that would have a sure out for their team. I can't believe this worthless team actually has a chance at winning this.

Man I wish Brooke was gone. She whines more than anyone I know. Like fingernails on a chalkboard.

they were annoying as hell the whole race, especially brooke ("i can't... i can't!") and most unlikely to win, so i gotta give'em props for beating the odds.

Arghus! I forgot to watch the finale last night (NBA finals) and saw spoilers. I don't even want to watch it now.

Ugh! Worst winner since Season 3's Zach & Flo (Zach was awesome, Flo was intolerable).

Like so many final legs, too much travelling from one place to another, to another, to another without having much to do. At least they got one driving challenge in there besides the final memory challenge, so I suppose that is something.

One of the worst seasons culminating in one of the worst teams ever to win it all. Scott wasn't that bad, but Brooke was an absolute waste and is totally undeserving of the money. He, as well as other teams, carried her through this whole race.

How did Brooke and Scott get the lead in the last leg, I wasn't paying enough attention.

Absolutely the worst ending of any season .. and I don't think the Wrigley Field scoreboard challenge was nearly as tough as some of the other final challenges we have seen in previous seasons ..

Seems like their taxi got them to the race track first. And she had 2 or 3 tries at changing the tire before the next team even started.

And then the driving part was one car at a time so they were queued.

The other thing is, apparently they left their big packs at the airport while the other teams carried theirs? Turned out there was a lot of running to do on this leg, from going to the landmarks to collect the postcards, to running around Wrigley Field, up to the building and then up and down the stands at the stadium.

So they could have lucked out and/or made a good decision to leave their packs behind when they got to the race track.

Also, they identified the places with the postcards accurately the first time. The Mom and Dad team got one of them wrong.

Then they may have gone to the places in the most optimal order, like take the subway to the one furthest away and then run to the other two.

I hated that they won, especially her. But I really liked the design of the whole leg, though it may be that once you fell behind on the race track tasks, there really wasn't an opportunity to catch up anywhere else unless the teams with the lead got sick or something.

Even if 2 teams arrived at Wrigley at about the same team, one would have to wait while the other one did it?
