  • Amazing Race Recap - The Finale - All Hail the Addicts (and Models!)

       December 10, 2006

    Tonight on the Amazing Race, Tyler & James the apparently not-gay former drug addicts (and models) came away with the victory and million dollar prize. They beat out Rob & Kimberly mainly because they were able to find a statue in New York City's East Village before the bickering duo. While I found myself rooting for Rob & Kimberly, I'm happy that Tyler & James won, although I still wonder about the nature of their relationship. Other highlights & lowlights of the episode:

    • In the Roadblock in France, team members had the opportunity to parachute onto Omaha Beach. What an amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience. Of course, WWII history buffs know that the US troops parachuted behind Utah, not Omaha, Beach, but still...a very cool and historically relevant task for Americans. Bravo!
    • Team Alabama was out of the running early after they tried to get a flight to New York out of Orly instead of Charles de Gaulle. I've never been to France and even I knew that was a silly move. As a viewer, however, I was thrilled because the last thing I wanted to see tonight was Karlyn get rewarded for her horrible behavior with $500,000. I lived through Flo people, that's enough!
    • I liked the wording of the final task "convince a New York cabbie to drive you 56 miles". Unfortunately, the cabbies seemed all too willing to play along. I don't blame them. A camera crew=big bucks!
    • The best thing about tonight was the promo for Amazing Race All Stars. Although they claimed the teams were still secret, just do a few internet searches. I'm sure you'll come up with a few lists of the participants and then you'll be eagerly awaiting that Race as much as I am!

    As always, be sure to check out the Viking Pundit for more on the Amazing Race.

    was i the only one who kept thinking that the orly airport should have had a big snowy owl on top of it?

    what happened in this series - no team ever begged for money, no one stiffed their cabbies on the fare, etc. did the producers finally get it through their thick heads that an american show with a multi-million dollar budget probably shouldnt be sending contestants out to beg for money from people who make $200 a month? that single act made all americans look like asses.

    Hee! You know, I kept thinking that the Orly airport looked familiar for some reason and now I realize it's because of those damn owls!
