The Amazing Race: May 5, 2013 Season Finale Blog Party
Oh my. It's even starting on time tonight! Are you ready for the big two-hour finale? While I'm not real keen on Max and Katie (more talking about Max there), I think any of the four remaining teams are "worthy" of the win. My personal favorites at this point are Bates and Anthony. I find the demographics of the last four teams racing to be interesting -- one male/female couple, two all women teams and one all male team. Are the challenges getting physically easier? Or are the female teams stronger? Your thoughts?
As the show airs, I'll update this post with the major happenings. However, as always, the big party will be in the comments area. Come join us!
Teams are heading to Ireland.
Roadblock - The teams must cannonball into a mud bog and swim it. t looks like it might do in the country-western gals. Jennifer just can't seem to do it.
The Detour has them serving a five-course meal (Tray It) or doing graffiti (Spray It).
Max and Katie are in the lead heading to the Pit Stop at Ulster Hall.
1. Max and Katie - won a trip to the Dominican Republic
2. Bates and Anthony
3. Mona and Beth
Jennifer and Caroline didn't make the final three.
On the way to London next! They get a pint of beer there and are heading to Washington, DC, their final destination. From the Lincoln Memorial, it's off to meet up with the Secret Service for a photo shoot with the President. Or, to be more honest -- a photoshopped shot, not the real thing.
The Roadblock has them being a Spymaster figuring out what one of 50 spies has the next clue. Now Bates and Anthony are in the lead heading to the stadium where the Nationals play baseball.
The stadium challenge is a hoot! One has to fly around on a zipline, the other is in an actual mascot baseball suit trying to catch a ball thrown from the zipline.
The final challenge has them search through globes and put them in the correct order of the race. Bates and Anthony got through it before anyone else arrived! They're now on their way to Mount Vernon ... the Finish Line! The other two teams are at or just arriving at the globes.
Max and Katie are done with the globes.
BATES AND ANTHONY WIN THE AMAZING RACE!
Max and Katie came in second. Last came Mona and Beth.
