I'm in sort of a hurry so for now..and NO no signs of the detour!

looks like the gates of the Atlas studios here? i have a pic somewhere.

Bunching right before the Roadblock and the Yield.  The BQ's can stare at Bama as they Yield them.

I think the shot of the BQ's in the Ninja shop, saying we are last and could be yielded, is where the teams get the clue to go to Atlas Studios (caution, Yield ahead).  Little do the teams  know that they will be bunched with a morning opening time.

I have some questions, and was wondering if I could get opinions on:

I'm thinking that the time that the 1st place team (Tyler & James) and 4th place team (Lyn & Karlyn) will be sometime between 30 minutes to an hour.  Just a simple guess.

I think all teams will leave the pit stop in darkness.

Will there be a Detour?

I think Dustin & Kandice will be the only Team to pass Rob & Kimberly, when R & K get the flat tire. 

I think Karyln will say the title quote.

And I the possible order that Teams arrive at the Pit Stop in Morocco:  #1  Lyn & Karlyn, #2  Rob & Kimberly, #3  Tyler & James, #4  Dustin & Kandice.

Any thoughts?

  • I think so too.
  • Maybe not Lyn and Karlyn.
  • Yes. One of the clues said that a team gets lost on the way to the detour.
  • Probably.
  • Maybe Dustin or Kandice, since everyoone wants them to leave .
  • I think it's : #1 T/J, #2 R/K, #3 L/K, #4 D/K.

I'm not sure about that, it's just what I think. I could be completely wrong.

I've got a good guess at T&J arrival time:  7:05 pm

BQ' arrive couple minutes later:  7:07 pm

R&K check in much later:  8:20 to 8:40 pm

Bama seems to check in the the moment of sun meeting the horizon:  9:05 pm

They will all leave in bright daylight for the next leg (sunrise at 4:46 am)

Chariot crash

I am beginning to think the chariot crash is a staged event (introducing the Roadblock) instead of it being one of the teams.  This is a movie studio and they could easily create a chariot crash for theatric purposes. :htg:

I totally agree about this--the only bad thing I've seen with a racer is that James' horses seem to go off the track...


And Happy Turkey Day everyone! Count your blessings...

 :duh: :duh: :duh: :duh: :duh: Bright daylight---how could I forget---the sun rises early in Europe!!!!!!Yes, you're absolutely correct. Besides, we see D/K leaving the pitstop in bright daylight.

Chateau d

are this estimates for th earrival at the end of teh Ukraine leg?   Which I assume (becuase it makes since with Bama's arrival and the Cho's arriving after sunset?

Because I was argueing on another board that even if the top two teams got a thirty minut penality (for running a red light) plus any time gained (maybe 2 or 3 minutes) it wouldn't be enough to change the arrival order.

fwiw
A) its a NEL
B) they have the latest survivor castoff on so they won't have to mention the latest team for TAR Dustin & Kandice? because they are on ARAS?
and as Kogs has told us there is no Finish-line this Monday.
C) we still have tomorrow for CBS to update the inside scoop ..or not ;)
D) last but not least ..last Hoilday weekend the AOL Gods put the following weeks episode promo up super early so we can only hope for some AOL inside scoop before Sundays show airs :D

Well  one clarification for above, when someone said they only think Dustin & Kandice pass Rob & Kim.

But on the previous page in Puddin's post there is this, and I assume its a quote.

*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.*

That implies that at least two teams pass them.  If it includes Tyler & James, I can see this really upsetting Rob & Kim, who at least did stop for them when they had car troule in leg #2.  Plus I don't think they would honestly expect Dustin & Kandice or Lyn & Karlyn to stop for them.

As for the Detour.

So far what type of detours have we ever scene that require teams to wait?

In season's 3, 4 and 5 we had skydiving detours where the plane only carried so many teams at a time.

Season 2 had hang gliding.
Season 2 & 3 had a tandum bungee
Season 3, 4 & 5 had Zip Lines that were first come first served.
Season 1 had the zip line swing bungee.
Season 1:  The glider tasks is one team at a time.
Season 3 and 5 have sleding type events where teams can only go one at a time.
Season 6 we have water Polo where I don't think all the teams can go at once.
In the Family Edition only two vehices could drive on the mud course at once.
We also have several repeling and ascinding tasks which migh (though I can't find proff) are first come first served in various seasons.

And any of these are possible well except the Olypic winter sports.

thanks mswood! 
so do you think all teams will pass them?  we definately know that dustin & kandice pass them.  i can see lyn & karlyn passing them as well.  if tyler & james are already ahead of rob & kimberly when rob & kimberly get a flat tire, then only 2 teams will pass them.

Yeah thanks for all those detour scenarios mswood.
Maybe Rob & Kim get the flat on the way to the Roadblock? and it doesn't matter because of the hours of operation they are able to catch up?

Great ideas mswood!

I've looked without success for parachuting, hanggliding, bungee, zip lines...

All I can find are my dune buggies and river rafting in the High Atlas Mts....oh, and golf!

The rocks in the river rafting look similar to the rocks behind Bama and Rob/Kim in the confessionals.

I just realized, the clue says the other teams. So, this could very well mean that all the other teams pass them, or it would have said other teams. The word the can make a big difference.

The problem is--the damn rocks are EVERYWHERE!

Here is the satellite photo again--look how close Ouarzazate is to the mountains

You can see it in the views too...

Here's a location I really like as a possible place for something--it'is not more than 1-2 hours from Ouarzazate, all the 4x4 trips and dune buggy trips go there and there are ROCKS!

It is the Oasis de Fint...
