I wonder, timewise, how close it was between Nick & Starr vs. Ken & Tina. Congrats to Nick & Starr - they earned/deserved it. And yes, the ring exchange at the end was sweet. Amazed to see the frat boys make it to the finish line, LOL. I was waiting for them to go low & wet & try to balance & fall into the water Seemed only fitting that their cab driver was lost from the start, so they didn't even seem to be contenders. And it was sad that Tony & Dallas couldn't be there at the end. Guess they couldn't get on the same flight as the rest of the contestants (yes, I know the passport situation probably caused delays).

so true! So true! I recorded it tonite so will FF thru it during the week. I guess it's a good thing Tina and Ken decided to stay together. Glad to hear Starr and Nick won it tho, they played a good game throughout.

I am sure the network, show producers, etc. helped them get the passport issue straightened out.

Dayum! I just watched 8 episodes of this season...Nick/Starr won like all but one of those legs.

On the reverse end, those frat boys are the luckiest team ever to make it to the F3. Worse than Charla/Mirna or Ray/Yolanda. Just awful, awful mistakes on a consistent basis, but they always had somebody else foolishly going for a fast forward or losing their money/passports, etc.

All in all, it wasn't a great season. Mildly entertaining but there just really wasn't a single team of big characters when there's usually at least three or four (and in the case of TAR2/TAR3, like ten). I fell behind early because I'm just getting kind of tired of the format...it's so "on the rails" whereas the drama and course of a show like Big Brother or Survivor is dictated by the actual contestants. I also wish they would get rid of NELs entirely. They only had two this year since the season was a meager 11 episodes. If they bulked up and gave us like twelve teams at the start, they could have knocked it down to one or none.

All said, I'm glad Nick/Starr won it. There's been a lot of seasons, if not most, where the most consistent team pretty much always finishes in second place via some misfortune (or another team's great fortune) on the final leg. That sibling duo probably has the best leg-to-leg record in the show's history and I'm glad to see they were justly rewarded. What really killed the competition this year was the New York couple going for the fast forward...had they not done as such, Dandrew would've been eliminated then and we'd have had four strong teams racing in the last two episodes, including one more contender.

What was really stupid was how nobody decided to call Portland in advance and acquire a snazzy taxi driver. They had hundreds of dollars and could've got themselves a fast, knowledgeable one well in advance. If any of those three teams had done as such, they'd be sitting on a million dollars right now.

Yup. I yawned throughout this finale. If Toni and Dallas were there at least it would have been a three-way race.

Agree though that Nick and Starr deserved to win.

Unfortunately, I don't see much of a future for Ken and Tina. The dynamics of their relationship are terrible and to be honest I didn't see much improvement in that during the race. The other ones that I don't think have a future was the girl with the vegetarian guy that went for the fast forward.

I watched the episode along with a bunch of other stuff on the DVR last night. It sort of made me throw up in my mouth a little over Ken and Tina's ring exchange, yuck! I agree the finale was a bust without Dallas and his mom. I am still curious if anything will progress romantically between Starr and Dallas?

The right team won it. They were pretty much dominant the whole way.

Agreed that it wasn't the best season -- there weren't teams that I loved or hated that much. I hope the casting is better next spring.

Nick and Starr were a very impressive team.

I'm a member of an Amazing Race message board, and found out there that they've been dating since the show stopped shooting in May.

Starr is one fine dish...at least Dallas ended up with a bigger reward than the rest of the losers along with a first place prize for one leg.

I am more curious if the frat boys ended up doing the whole 'run through Portland' thing or if they just got a message to go straight to the finish line. Light wise it looked like they tuirned up pretty soon after Ken and Tina - and there is no way they would have been able to get through the city, find the dinosaur, the donut shop, the russian cart and then make it out to the mansion. I'm sure that nugget of info will leak at some point but it would suck to not at least run the final leg fully if you have made it to the end.

It's so weird when they go to places you've been. Like the Portland food carts & such...to think I was sitting right next to that same Russian booth eating candy while waiting for someone back in March.

And yes, they obviously just told the Frats to run things out to the end. Again, their mistake was the taxi driver. They had just as good a shot as the other two of winning. Any team would've won had they ordered an intelligent cabbie in advance. It was done before by Colin/Christie who managed to find one that even illegally went up the side of traffic, etc. You can do that in this game, so I'm shocked that nobody took advantage of things. It's a million dollars, for Christ's sake. That's what kind of made the finale lame. Imagine if Nick/Starr had gotten into the foreigner's cab? Third place. The whole season would've come down to a freakin' driver.
