    WOW-I cannot BELIEVE the Beekman Boys won! :eek:

    I was on Team Chippendales all the way-but if it wasn't them, I wanted it to be the Beekmans. Glad that the Twinnies were Phillimenated in the first hour. :rolleyes:

    Jaymes and James were such good sports-coming in second would suck so bad! But at least James-or is it Jaymes-got his mom a new car! ;) Such nice boys :D

    Season 21 was a little "meh" for me...but I still love this show. You can't make this stuff up. People are just funny!

    Well, when it came down to a brain task, I figured the Beekmans would have it. It would have been hilarious to have Texas, Chips, and Twins doing that final task. :)

    The stations were right next to each other... I guess they privately told each team that an answer was correct or not, so you couldn't just look and cheat.

    I'm not thrilled with the Beekmans winning, but they won it fair and square.

    I was disappointed in the outcome.

    Even though the were close I think the were arranged so that you could not see the other teams answers. I am guessing that they were not allowed to physically leave their area and look at the other ones.

    I got really annoyed hearing about those "evil gays" from them. It really bothered me. That's when I started rooting for the Beekman Boys.

    My primary favorite team was the Chippendales, and I would have been happy if they had won, but after hearing the twins bad mouth the Beekman Boys so much, I started wanting them to win just to show up the twins.

    Ohhhh, I felt SO much joy watching those two little bitches get philiminated. So sweet.

    I'd have been fine with the Chippendales too, but I loved watching the Beekman boys win it. :up:

    You know all the teams win money, right? Second place gets $25k and third gets $10k.

    I'm so glad those stupid twins were out. They still get $7k though. Maybe they can use the money to take sensitivity training.

    Heavy horses! :up: :up:

    If you're in France plowing stuff, how likely is it that your plow horse is a Clydesdale? :p

    There are several different breeds of French draft horses -- it's far more likely to be one of those.

    So disappointed that Jaymes and James didn't win. If only they hadn't lost so much time figuring out the Houdini clue. :(

    I was annoyed when the Beeks screwed up the pizza delivery and then started bickering about it.

    So gratifying to see the twinnies self-destruct. If they had spent more time focusing on the challenge instead of worrying about their competitors, then maybe they would have done better.

    And -- really? People don't know the symbol for the UN?

    Biggest downside of the finale: now I want pizza!

    I think the majority of people outside of NYC wouldn't know the UN symbol. Of course we are proud of our international and cultural illiteracy here so. :)

    The pizza didn't seem too fresh sitting there during the challenge so I'll pass on Lombardi's :) The Lombardi dude seems out of central casting, sure he wasn't in a film at some time?

    I thought this was a great ending. It didn't come down to taxis.

    Like anything else, I guess it's a disappointment if the team you are rooting for doesn't win. I thought the finale was interesting and the best team in the last leg won. And let's not forget that no matter what you (we) think of the overall ability of the winning team, they lasted all 12 legs and DID make the final 3 - they couldn't have been that bad.

    Echoing the sentiments of most others, I would have preferred to see the Chippendales win, but am glad it wasn't the twins (though they did display good humor throughout and good sportsmanship once they were eliminated).

    Karma is a *****. The Chips, Team Tex and the Twinnies all agreed to screw the Boys and karma paid a visit. I've rarely cheered as hard when the Boys eliminated the Twinnies. Despite that, I was really pulling for the Chips. They were one of the freshest and most enjoyable teams to ever compete. Of course, karma also bit them as they were part of the double U-Turn conspiracy that kept the Boys alive.

    I wandered into the wrong thread. I thought this was the thread about the 60-minute infomercial for the newly-redesigned Ford Escape. I'm dying to know more about this 'kick to open' tailgate. :rolleyes:

    Don't worry... It's only useful when you and your wife are carrying eight baskets.

    Infomercial or not, that was a pretty nice prize for winning the next-to-last leg...
