If Gauntlet 2 had a legit final, the Rookies woulda been screwed. Ibis (& probably Susie) woulda slowed them down for sure & they woulda lost like they deserved to .
Finals I enjoyed best to least: (Duel 2 - Rivals 3)
1. Rivals 1
2. Battle of the Seasons 2
3. Exes 1
5. Free Agents
6. The Ruins
7. Rivals II
8. Exes 2
9. Duel II
11. Rivals III

You forgot Fresh Meat 2
Gauntlet 2 and The Island.
Best: Probably Cutthroat/FM2/Rivals 1 but the hardest was Exes 1
I would fucking die on Exes 1 final tho that final was just too much like most new era finals, one thing that i don't like nowadays is that every final is 2 days long and they actually stop mid race to combine times and shit like that i prefer a straight race where the first to arrive wins not the same bs that happens on Free Agents/Bloodlines/Rivals 3 where production can easily rig the times and determine who wins and who doesn't.
I would've liked to try Duel 1/Duel2/Gauntlet 3/FM2/Exes 2 finals not because they were the easiest ones but because they seemed fun.
I want a Rivals I and Exes I final back. Those looked crazy. An Island final would be insane as well
Top 3 for me:
Exes 1, Seasons and Exes 2
Worse 3 for me:
Bloodlines, Rivals 3 and Rivals 2
Gauntlet 2, The Island, The Duel 2
The Duel, Battle of the Seasons 2, Inferno 2, Battle of the Exes
Just from a pure madness standpoint the craziest was Rivals 1. Johnny said that even though Exes 1 had more difficult conditions, the Rivals 1 final was harder. Kenny also said that the edit cut out at least half of what they had to do. But every final there's been since then looks easy by comparison. Free Agents was fine too...mostly because it's the only final out of the last like...8...that didn't have a gratuitous vomiting scene.
Gauntlet 2 has to be the worst overall. They didn't even really have a final. The rowing part of the Island was awful but at least the boat building part was mildly interesting. I thought Rivals 3 was lame because all the checkpoints were kind of lame. 3/4 besides the overnight were "puzzles". I like a mix of puzzles, physical checkpoints, and some of those circus game kind of ones (the beer stein catapult, the ring swing on Seasons 2012).
Rivals 1 and exes 1 slay all. I will never get tired of watching rivals 1 final. Loved everything about it.
Tbh Bloodlines final wasnt even bad... Like bloodlines as season was tragic but the final was actually pretty good and fun.
Cara Maria's bo was spreading from my tv. Eww

lmao well imo it had the perfect mixture of physical events/puzzles/ and athletic shit.. Had it been on a gender equal season it would have played on tv way better
The Gauntlet 1 was the BEST.
It was very difficult but not too extreme where it's just absolutely ridiculous like now. The whole Coral getting bit by a spider just caused so much drama. Seeing the men even be exhausted due to the final being UPHILL in the mountains of colorado where oxygen level is low was interesting. Seeing Sarah win was great!
I thought the location of the Bloodlines final was cool, just hated how they got constant breaks, and limo rides. A final shouldn't be ended on a track IMO. I remember the Rivals 2 final was supposed to be in Tokyo. City finals could be amazing if portrayed right. Seems production has been lazy with their finals the past few. I think it'd be awesome if you had a map and had to navigate to each check point in a foreign city, and the first to complete and collect the items at each check point then get to the end first wins, no stopping. Of course throw in equalizers, twists along the way. That would be really cool.
I loved The Viking Quest from BOTE, it was awesome! Not as brutal as Rivals, but you needed to put everything you had into it. The checkpoints, the distance and the first to the top of the ice berg was just so cool to me. There was only a few breaks but by day 2, you were going until the end and IMO that is how a final should be. Constant pace to the end after the over night. I
IMO Exes 1 was the hardest final in the history of the show. I'm surprised everyone finished, it looked brutal.
I honestly didn't like Rivals/Exes 1 Finals. They looked too over the top difficult and it just seemed unecessary IMO.
One of the Best finals for me Was Bloodlines. Mainlt because it took place in a city and it had some fun elements to it too(like The Beer Barrel thing). I also really liked who they wore suits in the second half, Liked the limo ride too. It was just so different and unique compared to alot of final challenges.
I also liked Battle of the Sexes 2 final as well.
They were unnecessarily entertaining >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
to me at least lol
Bloodlines Finals >>>>> Rivals 3 Finals
Nooooo wayyyy. Never in my life have I seen a worse finals than Bloodlines. It was like a bunch of hokey carnival games. The last part was to just run miles in a circle? The fuuuuuck? Lol
2. Exes 1
3. Seasons 2
5. Exes 2
6. Free Agents
7. Rivals 2
9. Rivals 3
10. Duel 2
I honestly can't care for finals. Legitametly the least exciting part of the seasons since for a short time it just became running and hiking and nothing more. Bloodlines had some diversity. Free agents was enjoyable. Have yet to watch Invasion;s final tho.
The set up for The Ruins final was great. And Cutthroat. Just didn't end up being overly exciting
Rivals 2 was a let down...
Ruins and Cutthroat are definitely how finals should be set up.

When you think about it, Rivals 2 had the best competitors that any final had since Cutthroath but they gave thm that shitty final, the competition specially in the guys side would have been awesome.
