I was so happy for them yesterday. Definitely pulling for them all the way to the million!

I'm sure Amazing Race takes a lot of precautions but I don't think I would have wanted to waterski a mile thru croc-infested waters!

I'm happy they're still in first but I would have liked seeing Anthony wipe out a few times on the water skis. That stuff makes me laugh.

It's not often that my favorite team from day 1 ends up winning TAR. I'm so happy they won. They were charming, funny, strategic, and I cannot think of a single time I saw them fight or argue. I usually don't root for the alpha male teams but these guys were so likeable. Congrats boys. Well done.

I'm with you jersey721, my favorite team never wins. I didn't want the couple to win, just annoying. Very proud of the hockey brothers, very likable, got annoyed at one another at the last challenge, that seemed real and understandable, I was very happy and surprised they won.
