I'm still wondering why isn't any hourglass in the Moroccan set-up(?)

peach, I agree the dark comes before the day starts in Morocco, then the BQ's getting mobbed is mis-direction and full of voice-overs like the BQ's saying " were in big trouble right now.."

what we have so far ( minus the detour *sigh *)

ANIMOSITY ESCALATES BETWEEN TWO TEAMS WHILE RACING THROUGH MOROCCO WHEN ONE TEAM "YIELDS" THE OTHER
ON "THE AMAZING RACE 10," SUNDAY, NOV. 26

"We Just Won't Die, Like Roaches." --



" final Four! :hfive: "

" dude man those blondes , they have to much power over us"
.."



:bar:

" what comes around goes around "
" look at the mob.."
" lets get in the car..'

" were in big trouble right now.."
"  good luck Blondies..."


:bar:
Roadblock
*Animosity escalates between two teams while racing through Morocco when one team "yields" the other, forcing them to fall behind.
*At the Yield, one team forces another to wait until the sand in the hourglass runs out before they can participate in the Roadblock.
*At the Roadblock, the "yielded" team is forced to watch and wait from the sidelines as one person from each of the remaining teams get to experience the thrills of the gladiator days in a high-speed chariot race.
* The Road includes a High- Speed chariot race straight from Gladiator days.


<< we think the BQ's yield the Bama's, ticket #1 is missing( good eyes Chateau!)..guessing the Model Boys are first then comes the BQ's plus Rob & Kim with the BQ's Yielding the Bama's :nods:

" who wants to be a gladiator?"
James & Rob & Dustin
Tyler " I'm so excited!"

Dustin" I did it!"

Tyler/Kim " just great"


James

  maybe Rob? :lol:
Karlyn " look at me! I'm Cleopatra!"
:bar:
*One duo gets a flat tire on the way to a route marker and realize how much the stakes have risen when they watch the other teams pass them by without ever offering to help. << Rob
" Rob has a flat..lets not tell"
"I hate those girls $%#"

"were not evil blonds were just competitive blonds"
"when I saw that it wasn't a pitstop I couldn't believe it "
"they are conniving and their opportunistic, everybody sees that."

"the Blonds better steer clear of Bama's dude cuz their going down...they're gonna bring the smack down."

"I'd like a ring side seat.."

:bar:
Detour??
*After getting lost on the way to the Detour, one team arrives last and must wait for the other teams to finish the challenge before they can begin.
?? still no signs of the Detour task
Ninja shopping /clue ( lol banzai )

The hourglass is in the box, along with all the photos. I think it has been this way since the Yield post was shrunk in TAR6...
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Yeah, I think the hourglass was pulled out by the Hippies for MoJo to flip!  :)

Why is the Ninja shop not part of the Detour?

On the YIELD Box the number one is missing, but no pix of a yielded team and no hour glass, this leads me to believe that whichever team is first says "we choose not to yield" leaving it up to the second or third team to yield.  The fourth team can't yield anyone since no one except perhaps Phil is behind them.

I'm not sure where the Ninja shop goes yet but was thinking it might be a place to find the clue ..you know like in Kuwait find the shop with the man w/ the clue or Kiev find the apartment with the lady etc. No extra video yet..i hope CBS isn't on vacation already :-\ ?
With the Roadblock I guessed or assumed that T/J get to the Yield first pulling ticket #1 with R/K & BQ's right behind them w/the BQ's yielding the Bama's ..pretty sure thats how were seeing it right?
It's only Tuesday, we have time.

I've been reviewing all the dates--and there HAS to be an extended Pitstop either in Kiev or in Morocco:

Sat  June 17: teams finish in Kiev--Cho's arrive in dark
Sun  June 18: ?? extended pitstop Kiev
Mon June 19: ??--possible travel day to Morocco/first tasks/driving at night??  (they are driving at night somewhere!)
Tues June 20: Tasks in Morocco/??driving at night/detour?/Roadblock?
Wed June 21:  ??travel day--they have to be on Air France flight #2148 dep CDG (Paris) arr Barcelona 8:45PM

Based on the above they could almost have 2 days somewhere! And lord knows they could use a rest after the TBC!  :lol:

So I'll just assume that the tasks at the movie studio could be on the 19th with an extended pitstop in Morocco or on the 20th (seems most likely) and just keep going....



I really wanted them to be in Marrakech somehow (that's where the best souks (markets) are but it seems unlikely---there is a huge mountain range (Atlas Mts) between Ouarzazate and Marrakech and I hope that TPTB wouldn't let the kids drive across a mt range in the dark!!

So the"Ninja" shop must be early on since Dustin/Kandice are saying they don't like to be last with a Detour coming up while in the shop (unless it is creative voice-over)...

The shop is definitely an antique shop! (this girl knows her shops! ;D) I see porcelain, glass display cases, and chairs. Now I've found souks in Ouarzazate and fancy hotels--still looking for antique shops...

Yep--that's what I think too! Although not quite sure why T/J didn't  use the Yield...

And the Detour has to be a task that can't be done all at once since the team that gets lost has to wait once they arrive to do the Detour (BQ's?)

I think that the shot of the Bama's with the rocky background is shot during their Yield time--fits with what they are saying about the BQ"S (heee...not too pissed off, huh?!)

Flight info and possible tasks near Ouarzazate coming soon!!

or pitstop? I know nothing about where they might be but it sure would seem Rob & Kim are there before the Bama's?
 

and then I'll go with Kiev being the extended pitstop with the Bama's in clean shirts ( which we don't see them wearing leg 10 or 11 ) and them talking about being in the final 4 and must get into the final 3.

This shot was taken either between 9:12 and 9:31 am
or between 3:28 or 3:45 pm (assumes June 18th)

But I am really sure it is the AM option because of the Bama confessional.  They are sitting in mid-day sun.  The sun is coming from almost straight up.  It gets as high as 83 deg there/then at mid day.


BTW that shadow is from the little shelf for the hour glass.  That and the equilateral triangle make for a good time estimate!  It should be right in the middle:  9:21 am.

If I were T/J, and knew with certainty that the BQ's would definitely yield a team I wanted yielded (Bama), I would let the BQ's have the honor while protecting my team from the fallout.

Strategically, T/J should yield their strongest competitor, the BQ's.

OH ! Chateau!!  :hearts: :thankyou: :hearts: Thank you so much--that helps enormously with trying to figure out flights and stuff!!

But does it change much if it is June 20?? puddin and I are thinking that there was a long pitstop in Kiev...

And puddin that works for me too--Roadblock site as pitstop works well with flights...(coming soon)

Sat  June 17: teams finish in Kiev--Cho's arrive in dark
Sun  June 18: ?? extended pitstop Kiev
Mon June 19: ??--possible travel day to Morocco/first tasks/driving at night??  (they are driving at night somewhere!)
Tues June 20: Tasks in Morocco/??driving at night/detour?/Roadblock?
Wed June 21:  ??travel day--they have to be on Air France flight #2148 dep CDG (Paris) arr Barcelona 8:45PM


Okay --so far this works--I can get the kids from Kiev to Ouarzazate (Thanks qing_her!) pretty easily via Paris:
The problem is not knowing what time they can leave Kiev ???--but anyway...
On 6/19 Kiev --Paris (Orly) dep3:20PM arr 6:55PM
then Orly--OZZ (ouarzazate) dep12:00PM arr 2:25PM (direct)
                                  OR dep7:15PM arr 1210 AM on 6/20 via Casablanca
                                   OR dep 8:o5PM arr 1210 AM on 6/20 via Casablanca

OR--I can get them out of Kiev to Paris CDG all day long with a flight CDG to OZZ dep6:30PM arr 12:10 AM on 6/20

The interesting thing is I can get them into CDG--transport them across Paris via shuttle bus and get them out of Orly on the 12PM flight if they can leave Kiev to catch a 6:40AM flight .  Traffic in Paris can be a nightmare (I do this pretty often) . But I think there is time.  This could maybe give an early team a big lead--which is NOT supported by Morocco pictures.
