Anyone catch The Amazing Race finale the other day and think the fix was in? As much as I didn't want Romber to win, when they were on a flight where the ramp was already pulled away that should have been the win right there. The producers would have had an hour of Amber and Rob window shopping in Miami as they sauntered to the finish line. I know pilots can hold a flight for late arrivals, I've had it done for me, but it hasn't happened lately in the days of increased security. I think the producers intervened to make a race of it. To keep Romber quiet, they decided to pay them to televise their wedding. Can anyone think of a reason to watch a TV wedding of two people who appeared on reality shows? I kept my eyes closed through my own wedding, why would I want to watch two dimwits I don't even know tie the knot?

Conspiracy theory ?

I dont think the producers had any influence there.... I am sure camera man may have said cmon' cmon' this is good PR for you ... but nah they got on ..

I did love to see Rob loose.. the event .. though, and no why would you watch the wedding ? maybe if you were a Surivivor fan, but I dont really follow that show..

I think if the producers had any influence at all they would have kept the hot chicks in it longer... and let them have a freebie.. for the water events to see them in bikini's........ b/c Ucheena just doesnt do it for me... or gritchen..

If anything I felt that there was a big conspiracy FOR Rob and Amber. It seemed that each episode they checked in at the pit stop first they won some trip somewhere, whereas Euchena and Joyce won a couple of pit stops and got diddley squat. What was up with that :confused:

the results were leaked

I had heard, about a week before the final episode, that Uchena and Joyce were going to win. I guess there was a lot of online betting going on, and all of a sudden there was a big spike in people placing the maximum allowed bet on them.

I'm glad they won, I think they totally deserved it! Of all the teams, I'd say they definately had the best attitude. Ron and Kelly were just annoying with all their stupid fights. God knows Rob and Amber didn't really need another million (though I admit I put my money on them, just because I figured their celebrity would come in helpful, and it did)

The betting on Uchena and Joyce actually took place quite a while ago and lead to a suspension of betting on the race. Glad they won; they seemed like good people, almost Canadian like in their approach to life.

I found Rob and Amber completely useless. Everywhere they went they had locals pretty much holding their hands through the whole leg of the race. If they had to do it on their own, I bet they would have been eliminated within the first 3 rounds. The best was the dude that helped with the goats, and that hopped on the Ricshaw (?) with them. Gimme a break. Couldn't have worked out for nicer people.

that show is rigged.

i love the amazing race but you cant tell me that there was not some sort of tampering going on from the producers. take meredith and gretchen for example, once they were going to be elimanated, SURPRISE! its a non elimanation round. the next time they were going to be elimanated, HEY, this leg of the show is not over! it is a two parter. and how many times were they behind and gotten some sort of catcher upper help. what internet cafe opens up at 8pm? cmon.

The wedding was going to be televised anyways.....but didnt Amber and Rob get onto a flight earlier in the competition the same way?...in any event..the deserving couple won. Had it been Rob and Amber I would have
"The kid won't get back in the saddle, won't engage."
"Keep sending him up!"

Looks like blowhard is back to regain his title. ;)

Again .. I dont think there was tampering for gritchen/oldfart .. If they would have done something they would keep the hot blondes going ... or even the goofs that came in half naked to the finish line hoping that there stunt would intice producers to keep them going ... for the sex appeal and humour that would have been tampering ..

They had to have non-elimination legs, infact I was suprised they did not use them more. I dont think the old team was overley clever they just had other teams that were stupid.... and came in behind them ... I think last years old couple were smarter.. but so was the entire pack from the prev. season
