The clue says that we haven't technically won yet but that realistically nobody can touch us.

Farewell, Europe. It’s time for The Amazing Race to bring our teams back home and terrorize the streets, notable landmarks and locals back in the U.S. of A.

First part of the finale resulted in us losing 66% of the blonde women left on the Race and frankly, it was overdue. Subpar task performance finally ended the reign of blunders of singers Caroline & Jennifer. Never really a threat to win, they have to be thrilled with a fourth place overall finish. The girls now just get to cheer on their Race boyfriends Bates & Anthony.

Let’s make our final obligatory visit to the Pit Stop city and this time the teams will be waving goodbye to Belfast en route to Washington, D.C.

It’s 5:04 a.m. in Northern Ireland and Max & Katie are out of the gate first per their previous check-in. The teams have to take a ferry, then a train to London and finally, order a pint of ale at the Euston Tap to get a clue for their final city. Max & Katie note that they are nearing the end of the most stressful honeymoon possible and are happy to have the finish line in their sights.


Bates & Anthony are off a minute later and they are determined to finish strong. Second place is not an option for Bates, who lost in the Stanley Cup finals before. The prospect of having to find a bar brightens their mood even more.

In the last position, Mona & Beth are off the mat about 45 minutes later. The Sock ‘er Moms feel like they are representing all the moms in the world and that they have just as much a shot at winning as the other two teams. That is an admirable yet delusional attitude.

All three teams are on the same ferry and actually take the eight-hour boat ride to unwind. They put the Race on hold for a moment and enjoy the ride, knowing that it’s about to be full throttle to the finish line. In London all the teams rush across the street to the pub and get the news that they are heading to D.C. They must figure out that the location of the clue is the Lincoln Memorial, where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his "I Have a Dream" speech.

As expected, everyone is on the same flight and knows where they are heading. Max & Katie arrive at the steps first for the clue. They observe a moment of silence and respect for standing on the same spot as MLK did and are given their clue. The moms are right behind them. Cape Fear reads the clue and is sent to 1100 Pennsylvania Avenue to have their picture taken with "President Obama.”
