As long as it's not the "twinnies" I'll be happy.

Well they probably couldn't have scripted a better ending. I mean talk about the ultimate underdogs winning. I'm sure there's never been a winner that's never won a single leg until the final one before and on top of that not only did they never win a leg but they were always last or second to last in about every leg, hanging on by the slightest margins!

I liked it. This was a nice "come from way behind" victory. I had a funny feeling something was up when they showed the greeters saying "Ni Hao (Hello)."

Un-be-freaking-lievable.

We all watched it last night (wife was out of town so I had to promise her I wouldn't watch until she got back and my daughter agreed to go along with it).

The level of denial of the Twinnies was unreal. The longer the series went on, the more I disliked them after originally liking them. They simply couldn't believe that they were being beaten. I'm glad, however, that they showed good sportsmanship at the finale (unlike a certain other all-girl team from a few seasons ago).
