Ah, here we are at last: the finale, the episode with perhaps the most accurate title quote of the season.
Will this season, like so many others, be determined by last-leg taxi karma? Click through to find out!
After the requisite season recap from Phil, we begin with Nick & Starr.
Ah, yes. Moscow. We're still here. Did you know it's the largest city in Europe? I didn't.
Nick (wearing a Starr original "Today is my birthday" t-shirt) & Starr, the designer herself, start us off with a clue directing them to Moscow. That's in Russia. You know, in case you missed that day in third grade social studies.
The teams are leaving late at night to Almaty, Kazakhstan, so Nick & Starr and Toni & Dallas find a hotel with some helpful concierges to research flights online for them. Starr and Dallas flirt the whole time, but I can't decide if it's cute or sad.
The first task sends teams through New Delhi to an apartment complex, where they'll search for a large courtyard and their next clue. The shot we see definitely indicates that this is the, er, colourful task that had teams so angry in the previews for this episode.
And first up, to provide maximum paint-covered time, is that task.
Guess what, people? It's India time! You know what that means: crowds, traffic, cows, and smells that nearly seep right through your television screen.
In this largely uneventful episode that barely shuffles teams around, teams are instructed to fly to Siem Reap, Cambodia.
I am very, very excited about this episode, because as you can see from the title, we're going to New Zealand. And the reason this is exciting is because I have actually been there, unlike pretty much everywhere else they go on the race.
First off, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in Canada! I'm filling in once again for Ariana who is out of the office this weekend enjoying her turkey and the start of the hockey season.
Heeeeeeere we go! We're in Los Angeles, California, "the home of Hollywood." Oookay. Thanks, Phil. (HI PHIL!!!!) Starting line? The Playboy Mansion. Well, of course.
