Here we are at the finale -- two days past it, at that. I hope by now you've had a chance to see the last episode, or that you've at least heard who won.

After a short ferry hop to Tallinn, Estonia, teams spend the whole leg in and around that area, so it seems like a wee little leg with little room for the lagging, non-eliminated Gary & Matt to improve.

'Twas a surprisingly interesting episode for one that didn't leave the city of Dubai at all.
It turns out you can't just show up at the airport and request a flight to "the Persian Gulf" without getting a few funny looks.
Aw, man. That was a hard one for me, with the first elimination of a Team I Actually Care About.
And just when I was planning on waxing poetic on how cute Justin is.
You'll have to help me out a little here, readers.
