A family got Yielded but no one's eliminated.

I'm sure Utah folks and the Mormons were angered by the behavior of one family (YES, THEM!) in this episode!

Natatawa na lang ako sa sinabi nilang insulto. But that was uncalled for. They should'nt have blurted it out on TV.

Yuck.

A season I can pass on...

I was kidding when I said this, but it became true. I've only seen three episodes so far this season.

Bring on the next "regular edition," please!

good thing it's on the it's last few episodes... one thing i noticed this season tho, there seems to be a prize to the first place finishers for EACH OF THE LEGS. (i guess all those awards makes the sponsors dig deeper into their pockets. LOL.)  ;)

Didn't they start doing that in the earlier seasons?

Or it could also be the responsibility of the production team to have not included that remark. They can always edit that. While that family said something insulting, it could have been prevented if that was not shown on tv.  ???

was hoping the bransens could pull it together and win this one too... but then i figured even if wally finished that last road block first, they'd lose in a foot race.  :-[ it's gonna be very difficult to outrun a family of "jocks".  :-\

Corny, the best ending would have been if the Weavers got to the map puzzle first with a big lead and nalampasan pa rin sila ng Linzes and Bransens.  ;D

That puzzle would have been quite a task for a group of people who weren't sure Pennsylvania was a state and who thought Lake Pontchartrain was one of the Great Lakes. ::) There would have been a heck of a lot of praying though. ;D

I am sorry but I really like the Weavers.

Pero hindi talaga fair ang season na ito. Four healthy adults ang Linzes. Tapos yung ibang teams tadtad ng disadvantages.

I wanted the sweetie Bransens to win, but the Linzes were ok too. I couldn't stand the Weavers and the Mom always praying for Jesus to come help them--I think she even got down on her knees at one point, meh.

I hope next time there aren't any religious freaks on the teams...

Linzes: Who Dey!?!
Hindi lang sila malakas, nagkakasundo pa sila most of the time. Never did they argue or bicker at each other unlike some teams.

Finally its over, and we can now look forward to the team of two TAR on February.  :)

It was nerve-wracking though, i really thought the Bransens can make a comeback during the jigsaw roadblock. Oh well.

According to people who attended the TARCon party (thrown by fans and held on the night on the finale), every family on TAR8 showed up for the party except one--guess who?  ;D

The Linzes, Bransens, Gaghans, and Blacks were all there, and brought their other siblings/children with them, the ones who didn't join TAR.

Btw, there was one more challenge that wasn't aired on TV; after the Linzes were proclaimed the winners of TAR8, a special challenge was given to the 2nd and 3rd placers, the Bransens and the Weavers, and the prize was a GMC Yukon XL Utility Vehicle (the same one they've been using throughout the race). The challenge involved Geography--guess who won?  ;D

Watch that special challenge here: http://www.cbs.com/gmc/



If it's "them",  ;D how come??? I thought everything was "resolved" in the season finale...
According to the other families, the Weavers isolated themselves all the time, and rarely mingled with them, not even during pitstops. So while everyone's polite to them, they still don't think highly of them.
