Why didn't they tell the cab drivers the rules and interfere early on in the day when they were walking on the wires and the taxi cab drivers were helping one another??? They should have known by then! DUMB PRODUCERS. Snowboarders should win on another ALL STARS. Taxi drivers ugh! No brains.

I agree with the majority of the posts. So very very angry that taxi drivers calling each other determined the end of the race. I am huge fan of amazing race - not anymore. Producers really, you allow taxi drivers to talk to each other so Tommy and Andy can't be the final three????? What is up with rules and regulations to the show. I am so angry that the best team who won 6 first place finishes ended up being eliminated because the other three taxi drivers were in cohoots. Shame on CBS and the producers of Amazing Race. Won't be watching the finals. Its a disgrace

I agree that this wasn't cheating by the other teams but it was defiantly outside interference. The cab drivers should have taken them where they were told. They didn't solve the clue. Those of you that think this is the same as following other teams or cabs breaking down are crazy. I agree I won't be watching either

@ realsupergirl-you're a tard--the snowboarders were awesome and got robbed--i am sure you would not have done as well.

regarding amani and marcus--he is a retired NFL player, i am sure they don't need the money--why does TAR insist on having "pseudo celebs" on to boost ratings or whatever.

i am done with TAR, gone way downhill the past 3 seasons.

buy bye!

I know fans of Andy and Tommy are upset but stuff like this happens on the show a lot. Couples tell each other the answers and sometimes follow each other without knowing where they are going. I too am upset with what I consider the unfairness of contestants sharing info with some and not with others. It should not be allowed but you can't control everything that happens. Andy and Tommy won a lot of trips, money and cars, so I think they are probably pretty happy about things.

My sentiments are the same as most others here. I will not be watching the finale nor the show next season. If contestants do not have to use clues to move on and can simply get their solutions by cheating, what's the point of using clues to move the race along?

Totally agreed, CBS producers should be ashambed of themselves. Snow boarders were cheated. Two other teams were on the same path as them if it wasn't for the cab drivers. This is essentially cheating any way you look at it.

Boo, Boo, Boo

How can anyone say that the other teams knew that Jeremy/Sandy knew where they going and decided to follow them?? It was the cabbies interfering. It wasnt cheating but it still wasnt right. The cabbies should have driven to where they where told to drive to. Dedicated viewer since day 1.......not anymore.

And by saying outside people can't insert themselves into the game is just being naive. How could they not. There have been taxi drivers who have clouded before. Not at this level, but directions discussed. I am sure there are taxi drivers who respond negatively to bad racers and positive to good ones and drive accordingly. This is the same exact thing.

Unless you have the racers drive everywhere themselves, this type of thing will always happen. How many times have people found a local willing to escort them everywhere they need to go. I am sure they were doing that out of the good of their own heart. Not at all because there were cameras on them and it seemed exciting to do.

Nothing wrong happened in this episode. and it made it crazy exciting to see how it would all play out.

How were they cheated? What did Ernie/Cindy and Marcus/Amani do that would be considered cheating? The show is half skill/talents half luck. This is no more cheating than a first place team having a taxi break down and coming in last because of it. It's not their fault the taxi broke down, but that's the risk of the show.

Also teams all the time say to follow others cabs. Whether they know where they are going or not. Why isn't that cheating? It's not fair play in the game. If anything Andy/Tommy did it to themselves. They had one word to go off of and just told the driver who took them to the port. They had no idea why they should even be there. If they had stopped and asked and gone to the Balboa statue first, they might have made it back in time for the taxi cab collusion.

Again, how is it cheating??? The teams realized Jeremy/Sandy knew where they were going so decided to follow their directions.
