Recap: 'The Amazing Race' Season 25 Finale - The Winners Are...

19 December 2014 7:22 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are several things that have to be discussed in this recap of Friday (December 19) night's "Amazing Race" finale, but I want to get this out of the way: I don't think Brooke was wrong to be pissed off to see The Candy Girls arrive at the Manila airport after the last Leg and I don't think Adam was wrong to say that he was frustrated. When I talked to Phil Keoghan about the rash of episodes in which teams didn't go home this season -- Four out of 11 episodes -- he said that people were universally excited by the ending of the last Leg, because it was something they had never seen before.  True.

Lest you think I actually prefer to grumble about "The Amazing Race" and can't enjoy a simple, clear and well-constructed Leg? I give you Sunday (May 11) night's installment, "Hei Ho Heidi Ho." Was it perhaps just a bit too dependent on seemingly arbitrary and minor travel misadventures? Well, yes. Both first place and last place for the Leg were determined by very tiny errors of direction. And although there were skill-based elements to the Roadblock, the Detour and a Route Marker task, the advantages gained or time lost ended up being deceptively minor. But the tasks were fun, regionally specific and they were all designed to showcase the personalities of the contestants and I found myself really liking a few teams for the first time in weeks. These are the things I like in an "Amazing Race" episode, so I have to make sure I underline them whenever they occur. »
