I know there used to be some faithful AR watchers on this board, and I am not sure if anyone is still a follower, but I wanted to throw this out here for your opinions.
While I think it's great that Uchena and Joyce won, as it was fairly obvious how much the money will change their life as opposed to Rob and Amber who have plenty +, I suspect that the victory is hollow.
Perhaps it was just me, but I felt the producers interfered in Puerto Rico by having them put Uchena and Joyce on that plane to make for exciting TV. I realize that they are all about making an exciting finale, but I just don't buy that it was Uchena and Joyce's charm that got them on that flight. They didn't even have standby tickets, and I didn't think there was any possible way an unticketed individual could get on an airplane, and especially one that had already pulled away from the gate. I personally smell a rat, and feel that Rob and Amber were robbed.
While Rob infuriates me, I feel that they raced the best of all the couples. All of us here are fully aware that the best doesn't always necessarily win on a given night (thank you skating judges ) I am not sure that I would want to win a race the way that it happened.
The bottom line is that I think the most needy and nicest people won the money, I don't feel that it was won fair and square.
Just wanted someone else's interpretation of events.
