'The Amazing Race' Season 29 Finale Recap: The (Surprising) Winners are Crowned!

The Amazing Race is coming to an end for the season. After a return to the stranger team format (which was much more successful than the first go-around but still not fantastic) this weird season of the show is almost over. It is fitting though that none of the teams seem like they really belong in the finale. They might be likable enough (well, they're likable enough if they're not named Brooke) but these aren't the best of the best. Even Team Mom and Dad aren't quite The Amazing Race superstars that everyone pretended they were this season. Yet one of these teams does win and it probably isn't the one you expected to walk away victorious.  ...Read More... //

It is another two-parter for The Amazing Race and that is a bit worrisome since the first one didn't go so well. This first two-parter lacked any cohesion.
