The Amazing Race ended Sunday with a whimper and controversy.
To recap – the 3 teams left had to fly from Barcelona to Paris at the beginning of the episode. They ran around in Paris – with Lyn and Karlyn making up significant time by picking the better airport and flight. After running around Paris, they have to fly to New York City, Lyn and Karlyn fuck up, and end up at De Gaulle Airport last and without a flight back to the states. Because of this, they weren’t even a factor in the last leg. I’ve been watching for about 6 races now and this was the worst finale ever. Eliminating a team based on flight availability just plain out sucks. (Is it me or is it surprising that there wasn’t more than one flight to NYC?)
Add to that that there wasn’t a brains test in the last leg (the models won because their cab driver had EZ-Pass) makes me want to forget this race all together.
On to the next race – which is the The Amazing Race All-Stars. This should be fun – some good villains and good players. Looking forward to that in February.
