I thought the clue said upfront that the six beignets would need to be eaten after finding the baby - am I misremembering that?
Will and James are A Lot of personality, and they would have been my third choice out of the final three to win, but I appreciated that there was never any suspense in the episode. I had a solid 52 minutes to get comfortable with them winning.
There's no question I'd feel better about their win if it felt like it was an actual contest. This felt like the team that found the baby first wins the race - there was really little else to shake things up, and I was shocked at how little complexity there was to the bridge task and globe assembly.
It was fun to watch people race around the world in before times and I will always love this show, I just wish the conclusion felt more satisfying. In that way, it's very on brand for 2020.
