So now it's time for everyone to converge on the mat for the standard hugs and reunion. "I couldn't have imagined a better race," Meghan interviews. "I've learned so much about Cheyne." I think we all have. "He's just such a good friend and he's just such a good person. I know that he's always gonna be there for me for my entire life." I'm sure it's just my imagination that makes that sound like they have or are about to split up. Cheyne calls the race a life-changing experience. "And the money's not even as important as what we got to do together." So is he giving it back? "It was the perfect race. It could not have been any better." And they all assemble on the mat to give themselves a hand.
And that's the season. Even if the very end couldn't be a surprise, there were quite a few along the way, and I can't ask for much more than that. And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to reread my Big Brother 11 weecaps so I can get reacquainted with next season's favorite team, Jeff and Jordan. Can't wait.
