I like Will and James! I know they had some shady moments, but overall, I found them likeable.
I think it says a lot that, of the final three, they were the team that the eliminated teams were rooting for. I wasn't sure that I'd heard right when Phil said that, so I rewound, and that's definitely what he said. The other teams were clearly genuinely happy for them, so I think there was some editing for drama that may have made them seem less likeable than they really are.
The proposal was very sweet, and had me in tears (well, actually, I was already crying for them, but.... )
I was totally perplexed by Will not being able to eat three beignets. That didn't seem like much at all. Maybe he shouldn't have eaten so much of the king cake.
Will having trouble with the beignets was the grossest moment of the finale. I started to gag in sympathy. The funniest moment was James grabbing the card and swinging off the bridge. His screams had me in stitches. I didn’t realize how much Will had prepared for this competition. His hard work paid off.
I wish the finale was a little more suspenseful. Wish they would have edited it to make it look like anyone could win. I like when it isn’t so obvious. Still, I’m happy for Will and James. I was cheering for the beards, but Will and James winning is good too. I think they deserved to win because of the work they put into preparing for the race. It was interesting to see in an early episode how they practiced balancing bottles on their head pre-game, in case they should need it. And they did. They studied the globe pre-game and quizzed each other on geography….which came in handy this last leg. They practiced walking in high heals….which they needed a few episodes back. Will even learned to drive a stick, which gave him problems when he needed it, but the point is that he practiced.
I wasn’t expecting the proposal. Nice ending to a good season. I wish them all the best.
