It’s the Amazing Race 20 finale tonight, May 6, 2012. Find out which team is going to win this season. It’s going to be a two-hour episode, airing from 8pm to 10pm ET. From India, the final four teams will travel to Japan for the first part of the finale while they head on to Hawaii for the last leg of the race going to the final pit stop. Who do you think will be the winner?
Titled “It’s a Great Place to Become Millionaires”, the remaining teams will perform the challenges as they battle it out to be the $1 million grand prize winner. One of the highlights of the 11th leg is the Japanese game show, which if you will notice, have the same game show host from The Amazing Race 15’s first leg roadblock. The game show is also the roadblock for this leg and based from the preview, those who performed it are Rachel B and Vanessa. I’m not sure if Brendon did it and Art though but most likely they did.
Anyway, the detour for the first part is either “sushi bingo” or “photographing locals”. Those who are doing the sushi bingo are Brendon & Rachel and Art & JJ. Rachel & Dave will choose photographing locals while I’m not sure what Vanessa & Ralph’s choice is.
Who among them won’t make it to the second part of the race? There are speculations that it’s Vanessa & Ralph who’ll be eliminated. We’ll find out tonight if they won’t make it to the top 3.
For the second part of the finale, the teams will head on to Hawaii for their final set of tasks, where one is to hit the waves to put their rescue mission skills to test. Not sure if there’s going to be a detour of there will be double roadblock, but one of the task will involve Papa Holua, Hawaii’s insane and ancient downhill sport.
The finale is surely going to be an exciting episode as for the first time ever, the finish line is not the end of the race. One of the teams will think they have done all the tasks but once at the pit stop, Phil will inform them that they have missed one task. Which team could it be?
Who do you think will win this season? Will it be Rachel & Dave, who have been the first to arrive at the pit stops for 6 legs? Will it be Brendon & Rachel? Art & JJ? Vanessa & Ralph?

Roadblock – Japanese game show – “Bring That Chicken Home” game. They must have grab three chickens hanging from the ceiling so that the next clue will be handed. Art was the first to finish. Brendon was second, Rachel third. Vanessa can’t do it, Ralph is willing to take the penalty but asks her to try again if she wants. Ralph is concerned of Vanessa’s sprain so taking the penalty is okay with him. Vanessa tried again and after a few minutes, she did it.
Detour – Bingo Shout Out or Photo Cut-Out. In Bingo sushi, teams must pick up sushis on a conveyor belt and place it on a sushi bingo card. They must identify the sushis and place it in a straight line or diagonal. Once correct they must shout and eat those sushis.
