Tonight's finale dinner was a mixture of French and NYC:

  • French cheese (brie with truffles & chevre) with baguette slices.
  • Waldorf salad
  • Potato latkes, white and sweet (Hey! It's Hanukkah ) with sour cream and apple sauce.
  • Chicken a l'orange
  • French wine.

So glad to see Karma make things right in the end. I was glad to see the Chippies win the cars - they did deserve to win something. I was when the twinnies went home. And then when Texas got vapor locked at the flags ... Hope that $50 to each team was worth it Texas and Twinnies! Karma, baby, karma.
I agree! Karma in the end prevails. I would have been happy if Chippendales won, too. Just not the thieves.

It REALLY annoyed me at the "feeding the dogs" challenge when Twinnies kept calling them "evil gays" - SO not called for.

I was really pulling for the Chippendales as well, but was just as happy with the Beekman Boys winning. I would NOT have been happy with a Trey and Lexi victory - don't know what it is about that child (quite possibly the constant WHINING ) but I just don't like them.

Chippies wanted it so badly for their families though - I am glad they got the cars so one of them can give the car to his mom.

I think it was a fun season, and will miss it until it returns next spring!

OMG!

To win NO legs until the last one! yikes!

I really wanted the Chippies to win. Oh well.

I was an early fan of the Twinnies, but once they took the long-hairs $$, no more!

What makes them more deserving, winning legs? They didn't do anything negative w/any of the other teams, that I recall, and they won the leg that matters.

I was so happy to see the twins eliminated before the final leg. They were just truly nasty people. One can only hope that when they go back and watch these episodes that they see themselves for who they really are. I doubt it though, they are just to self absorbed and seem to view their nastiness as "cute". So, so glad that they did not win.

I am happy for the winners. However, I have to say that I was really pulling for Jaymes and James (although I'm still not sure which is which). The fact that one wants to give the car to his Mom and the other wanted money to help with his fathers cancer treatment just really got to me and pulled at my heartstrings. What a great couple of guys. You could really see the disappointment on their face when they came in second but they were very classy about it.

It does make you wonder though if J&J hadn't of used that U-turn what might have happened. The Beekmans probably would have been eliminated that leg. Wonder how Abbie and Ryan would have done at these final tasks??

I do have to say that I think it was unfair to have that last task be a road block. I think both teammates should have had the chance to work on the flags. With a challenge that difficult, it seemed sort of unfair for only one of them to have to do the challenge and have the other stand idly by. It was a cool challenge though. Like alot of them said, they took all kinds of notes but never paid attention to the hello and goodbyes. I imagine adrenaline is probably pumping at the finish line each leg you can easily miss what they are saying.

At the dog challenge, the Beekmans figure out how to cut the meat faster and they could harass the girls while they cut the meat and they said the girls could not talk and work at the same time so this is why they got into the name calling.


Why did the teams have to wait for each other to finish the bungee challenge when there were 3 cranes.

I was so happy to see the twins go. I was sure they were going to be in the final three. Phil said in an interview that the team he expected to win didn't win, so I knew the Chippendales wouldn't win, but I was afraid it was going to be the Twinnies.

Poor Jaymes looked so sad on the mat at the end. The Chippendales were consistently positive and nice to everyone. Hopefully, they'll be back in another season.

It was nice to see the way the Beekmans found motivation in the fact that the other teams were ganging up on them, rather than let it discourage them.

It was more a statement of the quality of this group overall compared to past years. Even in this version there were teams that raced better races but couldn't win the last leg. You have to give them credit for sticking around but can you honestly remember a winner who performed so poorly on so many legs?

Don't consider my a world traveler but I have been to four continents and about 25 different countries, the very first words I memorize is please, thank you, hello and goodbye and where's the bathroom.
