I noticed one team, it might be the clowns, didn't have the usual backpacks. They were carrying their belongings in a standard wheeled suitcase that you drag behind you. That's gonna cost them big time. Imagine trying to circumvent a crowded suq or market in India with one of those. I'm surprised though cause I always thought the contestants all had the same type of backpack given by the producers.

*phew* thought I missed TAR last week, but then I remembered it wasn't going to be on.

Ya, CMAs were on. If you do miss an episode, it's available online on the CTV website.

Doesn't look good for Kentucky.

It's gonna be hard to root for somebody once they go home.

I wasn't particularly rooting for them, but I admit to getting all warm and fuzzy during the last episode. They're a very likeable team. Simple people with simple dreams. As a guy who can't dance his way through his own wedding, I really felt for them at that competition.

Two hour finale tonight. Hopefully the last I'll ever see of Brandon and Rachel.

The best 2 teams this season finished first and second.

The bitching of moaning from Rachel lasted to the end of the show (blaming a bad cab driver even though prior mistakes took them out of the race).

I have to question the editing of the show, i find it hard to believe that Army boy and Rachel made up that much time. Going across the lake and heading back across would have consumed a large chunk of time. I'm sure Art and JJ ended up and the bunny hill much later than implied.

Anyway, no more Team Big Baby.

A couple... How did the winners open up such a massive lead? I thought I'd missed a whole chunk of the show or something.

Vanessa's ankle looked really messed up in HD, and she seemed to be wearing a brace at the end?

Brendan is supposed to be a PhD physicist but doesnt seem to understand what radiation is?

Finally got around to watching the season finale this morning. Some funny moments I'm glad they won; they deserved it

Can't wait for the next season!

Amazing Race Australia Season 2 should be starting soon. I watched season one last year and it's the same as the U.S. version with a different host.
If you can't get enough of Amazing Race you'll have to check it out.
