So, here come Freddy and the Princess, a weak-ass team that, over the course of the entire race, won all of one whole leg and featured a woman who never did one damn thing without complaining and embarrassed her entire country, and they're heading right for the mat, because it just wasn't a season where weak-ass hurt you very much. I think this victory is actually harder for me to swallow than Flo, in some ways. Flo was a harpy, but she never went out and basically accused poor countries of being really disgusting and intrusive, and that "breeding" shit? I mean, Flo went to Vassar. Say what you want about Flo, but she would have sooner died than spit out that kind of claptrap, even if she thought it, which I don't think she would have. And until the last couple of legs when she melted down, Flo knew what she was doing, and she actually did some work at airports and whatnot. And also, she was balanced out by Zach, whom I love, as opposed to by Freddy, who seems like pretty much of a blank slate, other than being pretty and having a nice laugh. It's just ridiculous. The entire season was very unsatisfying, dominated by endless fighting, pushing and shoving, asshole behavior, ugly Americans, the complete dominance of luck over skill, and just way too many people who were obnoxious and unpleasant to begin with and never got any better. And it's just the right ending, because this team manages to be both boring and offensive in a way that just makes the whole season feel like it never even happened and doesn't even count. And it kind of doesn't count, to me. A toy season, a toy ending, and a toy winning team that would be flattened in a heartbeat by Flo and Zach, let alone any of the teams that used to win back when it was an actual competition and not a parade of arguing whiners.
Anyway, Freddy and Kendra win, and everyone pretends to be happy, because what else are they going to do? Boo? Sure, booing is what I did, but they can't, really. I hate this. HATE. Oh, and the first thing the Princess does when she's done hugging Phil is blow kisses. I shit you not. Congratulations. You just won a million dollars, and I wouldn't be you for five times that much.
