Let's just get to the part with the other teams clapping at the finish line. Guess what? It's Eric and Pink. Seriously. Not dating, clearly don't like each other, were clearly put on the show as a cooked-up gimmick because somebody thought a dating couple made up of people from different teams would be great, includes a woman who (I'm sorry) is one of the most boring humans the show has ever featured alongside a dude who has no shtick but his old shtick...this is the end of All-Stars, which fans obsessed about beginning after maybe four races. This. Is your ending. I mean, it doesn't really matter, and they're not the first suck-ass winners or even the worst suck-ass winners (though they're certainly close), but the show couldn't really have given a bigger finger to an awful lot of fans with the way this was cast, because they forgot the biggest rule of casting -- never cast anyone who would genuinely ruin the season by winning. Furthermore, it's not like people watching the show aren't smart enough to know that "dating" with these people is bullshit. They don't even like each other; they're here because this was how they could get on the show. It was just a very, very badly planned leg and a very, very badly constructed final task. And I say that in spite of the fact that this is only my second least favorite team winning. I mean, does anybody think that Eric and Pink know each other better than Dustin and Kandice or Charla and Mirna? Of course not. Does anybody think Pink is smarter or more insightful about other people than Kandice or Charla? Of course not. It was a four-digit combination, and there were limits on what teams were even in the realistic running for each question, meaning that there was a certain amount of room for guessing, and Pink hit the right guess first. Really, the only relevant "racing" in the entire leg was the taxi ride at the very end. Oh, and one more thing -- production might try sewing up some loose lips around the office, because the entire finish order, including the order of the final three, was public before the season started, which clearly didn't come from sightings by fans -- it came from inside. Just something to think about.
But here they are anyway, and they're the winners. They're both very happy about the money they just won. They have really nothing to say about each other that's pleasant, other than things related to winning.
