Banzai  :jumpy: Thank you !!
so thats what Kar/Lyn say :
Teammates Lyn and Karlyn are fascinated by the thought of being in China, with one of them remarking that "people in China love us folks from Alabama because of that movie 'Forrest Gump.

so its TRUE !!! 2 elims !!

The episode flies by, and longtime viewers should be warned that there are some surprises this season. One of which pops up very unexpectedly at about the halfway point of the first leg, when host Phil Keoghan makes an unexpected appearance.

The producers take full advantage of the Chinese landscape, ending the first leg of the race with a brutal rope climb up the side of the Great Wall of China. It's a segment that is both harrowing to watch and also fascinating to see strictly on its visual terms. It's an almost perfect "Amazing Race" challenge, and it sets a high bar for the rest of the season.

I think Bilal did a good job at the fish Roadblock.
The adjacent two tables are clean. It means they're ahead of 2 teams

 
Bilal looks happy in the taxi confession. He's not sick like other racers in the caviar Roadblock.
They probably got lost on the way to the rest stop but I think they did OK at the Roadblock.

My take is they are just starting to eat . The bowl is full and the one dude is having a hard time with the chopsticks . Just my opinion fwiw
The writer even hints towards Bilal & Sa'eed being the first team eliminated :
How do the Cleveland guys fare? Well, it's an impeachable offense for a TV critic to even suggest which teams are sent packing. You'll just need to make the trip to Beijing and the Great Wall to discover the identity of the eliminated duos.
"I'm from Cleveland, Ohio," Abdul-Mani says with a laugh. "What do I know about chopsticks?"

Thanks much for the info Banzi Pud  :kuss: what with all the work you do around here thought I'd help out a wee bit and fix the 2nd line for ya.


2nd line should say:
The coal miner's daughter wife said the title: "Drive faster...quack, quack!

The coal miner's wife throws out what could be a classic "A.R" moment when she attempts to get a Chinese cab driver to speed up by yelling "Drive faster...quack, quack

I was told that the word for faster in Chinese is pronounced "qui"(with the I being the long vowel sound of I).  so when Mary says "qui! qui!" she is saying "faster! Faster!" :whisper:

So Dustin/Kandice, Duke/Lauren and Erwin/Godwin get on the same flight, while Lynn/Karlyn and Peter/Sarah are on the first?

Didn't know they still allowed pistols into airports...
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Hmm... seems to me that Vipul & Arti and Bilal & Sa'eed may be the first teams to be Philiminated!! They may both be gone today if there is the double attack as seems to be predicted.

Sad, all the brown people are gone! Oh well, better luck next time.

So they all get on the first flight? Lyn/Karlyn seem happy enough here...



So we have Peter/Sarah, Kellie/Jamie, Erwin/Godwin, Lyn/Karlyn, Duke/Lauren (That's Duke on the right of the cap, right?) Is that a racer behind Dustin? Sound man?

My speculation (based on TAR tradition)
The food task grants teams a ticket for the Hutong rickshaw tour the next morning, which will bring them to Beihai park (tai chi is practiced VERY EARLY in the morning). According to the AOL promo, this means Tyler and James get to leave just before Dustin and Kandice. Where the elimination is, I don't know. The Forbidden City perhaps?

Is it out of cogitation that the first leg is actually a "double one"? I mean those Legs where they meet Phil but are given a new clue and are told that it's not a Pit Stop?

Well, wind is blowing on Bilal/Sai'eed direction... looks like they are going to be the first team to say good-bye to the competition.

heres another article RNO

 
Phil warns the teams early on that there will be some surprises on the race, and he’s not kidding. The first surprise shows up on the first leg, and no one sees it coming (though one racer guesses it without even realizing it). I can’t tell you what the surprise is, of course, but it’ll keep the racers on their toes for the reason of the adventure.

As for the tasks, they aren’t much different from what teams have done in the past. There is a Roadblock on the first leg, which is rare, and it involves, food, unfortunately. The Detour offers a choice between a task that is physical but not necessarily time-consuming and a task that is less physical but possibly more time-consuming. Both require accuracy and attention to detail.

One rarity, however, is that teams must complete a very physical task in order to reach the Pit Stop. This means that teams who get to the location of the Pit Stop first won’t necessarily get to the mat first. Instead of a footrace to the mat, which is what we usually see, we see a different kind of struggle. It’s a good determination of who is physically fit and who will have more trouble with those kinds of activities.

^^ In the same article:
Quote
Vipul & Arti: These two are a really sweet couple (think Jon & Kris from season 6) and I like them pretty much immediately. They have nothing but nice things to say about each other, which I always like to hear. Unfortunately, they're another team with a run of bad luck.


^^ That's a minor spoiler. They're goner  ???

Quote
Erwin & Godwin: These brothers are strong and smart, but that’s not all the race is about - there’s also an element of luck. Unfortunately, they don’t have a whole lot of it. But fortunately, they’re in pretty good spirits anyway.

The Cho brothers also have some bad lucks.

Just guessing from what I'm reading:
  • The preview tapes/DVDs went out to fewer reviewers than in past seasons;
  • The tapes show the whole episode, not just 3/4.

^^ we know the Chos go fairly far ..Vipul & Arti &  Bilal & Sa’eeed goners ? Seems the majority thinks so too ?
( as in confessionals ?) Plus Bilal: Bilal & Sa’eeed take time out to pray  :groan: ?

Sa’eed & Bilal: Bilal & Sa’eeed are nice guys and all of the other teams have nothing but good things to say about them.

This sounds like the pit stop matt is located on the Great Wall of China (outside of Beijing) but teams must climb the wall to reach the matt!! This should be interesting.  Reaching the mat location first may not mean that you will be on the matt first!

More ammunition for the Great Wall to be the last pit stop for the first leg!!

Possible detour could involve rickshaws and Hutongs of Beijing.  (Could be the task that involves attention to detail).
