    How can you say it doesnt hurt another team, What about the team that ends up last and gets eliminated because the fast forward was used(which means that team may or not have been the team to be eliminated) instead of the one that actually is. I say thats a pretty big hurt.

    The Fast Forward indirectly hurts other teams, as does any good "race move". The Yield DIRECTLY damages another team.

    Yes it can. Using FF causes you to bump the last arriving team to elimination. It just doesn't hurt as much.

    I personally like Chip and Kim, so bear that in mind when you read this: I think they took a hit for the Moms and the Christians by racing for the yield. All three of these teams wanted to yield C&C, so I don't think it was smart for Chip to race for the yield. He must have been in automatic race competition mode, not thinking, or had some fear that Kim and he could have been yielded to put his team's picture up - he knew Colin well enough at that point to realize how Colin would react! So if Chip and Kim are eliminated b/c C&C take revenge on them, the Moms and the Christians should be soooo grateful!

    Well, according to the Insider videos, they thought that this was the last elimination leg, and also the last yield. So Kim figured it didn't matter if C/C were pissed.

    Yea, I tend to agree that the yield isn't and wasn't cheating; however, the backstabbing wasn't actually using the yield, it was being all nice nice to C/C when C/K needed them and riding their coattails and then turning around and yielding them. However, as someone said, C/C only looked like they were maybe 20/30 mins behind the others, maybe even less, so they could very well wind up in front with the next week's climbing challenge and then C/K are really done.

    SPOILER: looks like someone knew the top teams all along

    Hi all,

    Very cool: Edward Hasbroucks site now has lots of photos from the final leg.

    Does anyone here get his weekly review of the Amazing Race? It's been really good this season.

    Last September, when TAR was nominated (and WON!) the Emmy, it was for TAR3, but the winners of TAR4 (Ch & Re) were the attendees. But the Emmys were AFTER they won TAR4, so it was no secret/spoiler when they attended. It just seemed natural to have the most recent winners attend. I'd have rather had a TAR3 Team attend, but why confuse the casual viewer that may tune in to see an "old" Team. Most viewers, I am sure, assume that last Sep's TAR Emmy win was for the just-then-aired-TAR4. Only we are quirky enough to know full scoop.

    So, with that all said. It is possible that Chip/Kim attending this year means they are the winners. It would follow last year's pattern of attendees.

    I just hope by next Tuesday when we *really* find out the winners, we will all be asking ourselves, "who will win the two-time Emmy-winning Amazing Race . . . . . . . tonight?"

    How have Kim & Chip ridden on C & C's coattails? So C & C have bought them tickets a couple of times - big whoop. I'm tired of people saying that everyone is just hanging on to the coattails of C & C. All of the final four teams have played great games and all of them deserve to be the winners.
