    In what effing frozen hell do I find myself rooting for Tim & Marie during this finale? I'm almost ashamed to admit it, but everybody else is grating on my last nerve.

    ETA: the mobile vending machine is hilarious!

    Me too. But then I her barking at people impatiently, and I'm annoyed again. I had been semi rooting for Jason/Amy but not so much now.

    I so want the Afghanimals to beat the doctors, but it prob. won't happen. If I were Nicole, I would knock Travis out.

    Travis is a jerk, but why did they let Nicole build the robot? She clearly has no sense of details. At. All. Tim and Marie may be annoying, but they race well and deserve their wins. I hope they win it all.

    Travis must have done all of the roadblocks that he could. (They have to split them evenly.)

    Going into the final leg they are all tied up 6-6 with roadblocks performed (well technically 6-4-2, 6 for Travis, 4 for Nicole, and 2 for Amy), so they wanted it so that they could pick who they wanted to do the final roadblock instead of being stuck with one person performing it.

    This is the case for all of the couples, actually. They are all 6-6.

    I wouldn't have a clue when to drop the bag of flour to hit the target.

    You have to time your airspeed. And get lucky. Nicole really sucks at all the tasks. I'd be frustrated with her if she was my partner.

    I wonder if they'll have to land and get more bags of flour. I wonder how many they have in the plane.

    I missed what # attempt they are on.

    That too.

    I figure Pinky and NoBrain will fly through this task.

    You just know Nicole is hoping Travis slips off that ladder.

    This would be an exhausting leg! A mile paddle if you don't know how to paddle a kayak is a challenge. And now a memory challenge at the end.

    It's nice the final challenge is cooperative and not a roadblock but wow that looks hard.

    Did anyone else catch the side eye Travis gave Nicole in the cab on the way to the totem poles when he was discussing the struggle they had had with the last few challenges?

    Good for Jason/Amy probably winning, but I find them meh.

    Jason/Amy ran an excellent leg this time. Nicole was terrible as a racer, but Travis wasn't any better. Tim/Marie ran a great race.

    I am now thinking Amy helping Nicole to get to the last leg was a good strategy- the final 3 was basically no contest and partly because Nicole is kinda useless. Glad Tim and Marie didn't win, though she got tolerable near the end. Interesting about the 60/40 split...

    Nicole says: "You work through it and you don't give up."

    Psh, more like "you panic and beg your neighbor for assistance so you don't give up."

    I'm satisfied with the outcome. Jason and Amy were fairly likeable, and ran a good race from beginning to end. They were supportive of one another and mostly even-keeled.

    I was kinda rooting for the Afghanimals...their enthusiasm was loud and a bit OTT, but at least they were having fun and enjoying themselves.

    Travis really got on my nerves these past two weeks. Nicole is often kinda clueless, but he is sooooooooooo hard on her! Seems he's never gotten past that he was her teacher and she was his student in med school. Plus their holier-than-thou attitude was really annoying.

    Pinkie and Tim continued to irritate me ...though I was kinda pulling for Marie at the robot challenge...not to beat Leo and Jamal, but to beat the Mutual Aid Society of Amy and Nicole.

    I"m satisfied with the winners. I didn't find myself cheering for any of the teams at the end, but they were the ones that bothered me the least... although that isn't always the criteria i use. Since nthing else struck me, that's what decided it for me.

    Gonna miss me some TAR for a bit now
