Not sure how they deserved it more than anyone else. Let's see, within the last show alone they finished last and should have been eliminated, but lucked out with that "non-elimination round" crap right at the end.
Then, they fell 12 hours behind AGAIN and got lucky again that the Amazing Race did their little "we have to make sure everyone's close at the end so we'll make a challenge at a place that doesn't open until tomorrow so everybody catches up and makes for better TV" crap to let them catch up.
THEN when they didn't get onto the plane towards the end they got lucky AGAIN in that the airport pulled the plane back to let them on, no way in hell that would've ever happened if AA didn't see TV cameras there. Not to mention I'm wondering if the Amazing Race had a little chat with them to make sure one team wasn't way ahead going down the stretch.
THEN they actually got out ahead and basically won the race on the lucky chance that their cab driver spoke spanish while Rob and Amber's didn't.
No way anyone deserved more to win than Rob and Amber, they led almost the whole way, and even throughout the last episode alone they pulled out to several big leads only to have the Amazing Race do there "everyone has to wait at point x so everyone catches up" thing several times only to get back out ahead again, and have the AR pull the same stunt again.
And while maybe a bit cocky, they still were one of the most affectionate couples out there, wasn't like they were a-holes or screaming in each other's faces like some of the couples you see. I mean, even when they fell behind at that one point because Amber went the wrong way and they hence had to hurry, he had her give him a kiss first, then after she did the task he carried her to the car.
