Well that totally sucked! I hate the outcome and I hate how the bros played.
Crazy about sports!
I sort of like that a true fan of the show won this race.
Tessa and Scott: Thank you
Bitter to the end Mean Lesbians? Bitter to the end.
Wow, lesbians are harsh, bitter and classless
Tessa and Scott: Thank you
Well, one was mean. I predict that relationship is over.
Meow! What a witch.
I couldn't believe how bittah that one half of the lesbians is - like come on, get over yourself already. Anyone who keeps that much bitterness and anger inside has some definite issues and if I was her partner, I'd drop her right away. I couldn't believe she'd start something like that when pretty much everyone else is celebrating the final three.
PL - I hope you are correct.
Crazy about sports!
That girl is not nice, just plain bitchy, and her partner is embarrassed by her.
I totally agree that this was not the place to address the U-turn issue. Yes, it was a dumb move, but bring it up later. You know Caite's going to get asked about it in interviews.
That was the most classless, lack of sportsmanship ever displayed on TRS. How sad. Carole, at least, was embarrassed by Brandy's display. Brandy's ire was kind of funny at first, but now it just appears to be plain psychotic. Carole should run fast and run far from her.
Congrats to the Little Bros for winning. They were shrewd (and somewhat scandalous) in the final leg. However, they won this leg--the one that counted. Ironic, the only other leg they won in the race was where they completed the only Fast Forward.
Caite--you still haven't convinced me that you're all that smart. Maybe a little lucky. I don't think I'd want to many parts of her either (speaking to Brent). She's come a little undone, also. And she's violent--threatening to punch him in the face. WTF???
I would have liked for the Cowboys to win. They did really well. That was probably the biggest hint that they wouldn't win. But, I liked them a lot and they were very entertaining.
Bring on next season, already. September is too long a wait!!!!

I'm so sad for the cowboys. But at the end of the day, I feel like they're good people. So they'll be okay. I don't think I can say the same for the brothers.
The Cowboys shouldn't have had so much integrity. I'd have nudged Jordan out of the way. Twice.
I'm dissappointed for the Cowboys.
The Brothers were a bit rude this last leg. How fortunate they ended up in San Francisco!
What was up Catie's ass?! That relationship won't last. I fear a physical fight between those two. How rude they spoke to each other the whole race. It was stupid of Catie to even approach the lesbian couple. Why bring it up? You prooved you're not that smart after all!
I hate to say it, but Brandy made it seem like she wanted to say "you u-turned us just because we are lesbians!" But...sorry... you're a bitch and that's why you were kicked off!
Well, that ending sucked. I was rooting for team 'Oh My Gravy' all season.
I HATE airport bunching. They really need to finish the last 2 legs in the states next year. That 6 hour gap between 2nd and 3rd got wiped out.
at "dance, skip and do si do" instructions. And seriously, next time push Jordan out of the way. There's no way that Jordan OR Dan would have stood there waiting for the other guy to write down the clue.
Ending with the bittah 'lady' - get over it already. I wasn't a Caite fan until Brandy started witching at her. Was like watching an ice dancer melt down. Wonder if Phil was told to bring it up?
Caite should be thankful for that confrontation- it's probably the first time a lot of viewers supported her.
(Though I have read comments siding with Brandy. But I think those people are crazy.)
Haven't read the comments so I don't know what the general consensus is here about the outcome, but here goes...
Gotta hand it to the little brothers, they deserved to win based on this leg. I wasn't too big of a fan of the airport tactics, but they all were going to be on the same flight anyways, so other than seating issues, it didn't bother me too much. As far as getting bumped up to first class -- there's nothing in the rules that state that you can't do that. I think it was smart of them to at least ask, and this time it happened to pay off. Additionally every moment we saw they were hustling and didn't panic when things went askew. I love that such a huge fan of the show got to win the big prize.
Sad that the cowboys didn't take it all, but they really did have a great run. I was kind of surprised that they didn't realize that they had to have one of them turn with the rotating text in order for the other to read it when they spent god knows how long waiting for Dan & Jordan to figure out what their clue was while Jordan was spinning in endless circles. Still, though, I would bet that if there's another all-stars version of the show, the cowboys would certainly be one of the teams asked to participate.
Brent & Caite.. you know, compared to some of the horror shows we've had in prior seasons (Rob & Kimberly, Freddy & Kendra, NATE & JEN), this team really wasn't bad at all in comparison. In fact, I don't think that had they won it would have ruined the season as much as it would have had, say, Nate & Jen won their season. I don't know if Caite really improved her image at all after the pageant trainwreck, but she held her own pretty good. And as much as I loved the lesbians this season, this was not really the right place or time to have a throwdown... although in their defense, Phil kind of fueled that fire a little bit..
Even though this season has had some rap as one that hasn't been quite as good as it could have been, overall I have to say that this was, far and away, my favorite cast of all 16 seasons. They hit the jackpot with a right combination of snarkitude, humor, and idiocy that made me get more and more into the season as the episodes went by. I'm hoping they can find something similar (heck I'd settle for even a cast half this good after so many clunker teams in recent cycles) within the seasons to come.
I'm still bummed for the Cowboys- I loved that they always had a positive attitude and usually rocked the tasks. But I've got to hand it to the brothers for running an aggressive final leg- I think the move to first class was huge in giving them an advantage. Even though they weren't my favorites, it's cool that a huge fan of the show ended up winning.
Right now, I'm okay w/the Little Bros winning, as I missed the first 15 minutes due to company popping in at the worst possible time. Finally got down here and...Saw it from when Caite threatened Brent to the end.
We'll see how I feel after I catch up due to Time Shifting on the dish.
As a major Star Wars geek...I was turning so many shades of green during the task at ILM, it's not even funny. I mean...Just to be escorted by those Stormtroopers would have put the biggest grin on my face. So envious they got to do that and especially in the place that's so leading edge w/Special Effects.
Which brings us to Candlestick Park and...To quote the Cowboys..."Oh my Gravy!!"
Carole...RUN NOW!!! Talk about a bitter, bitter little person. Brandy needs to get over herself and big time. At least Carole did look embrassed, but did anyone else notice that they were the one team there that didn't have any other team close to them? There seemed to be a pretty big gap between them and the other teams on their side of the "runway" to the Stage.
As for Phil asking...I have a feeling he was told to ask that question, as the look on his face wasn't pretty after that took place.
My only complaint about this Season is that it started during the Olympics and there wasn't anything more important than the Party out in Vancouver in this house. So I was playing major catch up for a few weeks before I was able to get into the swing of things this Season.
Sigh...It's going to be looooong summer w/out my TAR on Sunday nights.
This is my first season of TAR. That ending sucked.
I'll probably watch again, though.
