I can't imagine why they take so long.

It should be an easier thing for a cabbie to find.   :dknow

I wish I could bend the events to a 4-way finale

My guesses for mat arrival are:

R&K
Bama
BQs
T&J (they let BQs arrive ahead)

My guess
T/J << darn no pics of them doing the detour just voices so its a guess
R/K
Bamas
BQ's


Maybe the BQ's tried tomatos first and gave up and switched detours?

Somehow I still think they are.

"If" the giants is a task that everyone has to do after completing the detour then Bama clearly hasn't picked up their giants yet. This sounds crazy but check out where the peek-a-boo crotch is on each giant. :snics: BQ's have lower ones and a crew member is pointing to the higher ones to the left of the BQ's (probably as T/J are running up). The giants to the right of the BQ's are for Bama and are still there. The only one's we don't know about are on the far left (R/K's).

Now if the giants are the other detour option (and not an art car thingy) I don't know why they are so late getting there. Maybe T/J and the BQ's got real turned around at the maze and made it out later than R/K and Bama.

And R&K are first to the tomato pile.  I don't see any tomatoes around it.  It's still a tidy pile when they arrive.

Banzai,  those shadows are tricky!  I had to do cosine correction to convert 61 deg apparent to 20 deg actual.

just ignore me ( just slowly working on this )

Clues:
"Dude, I'm Such A Hot Giant Chick Right Now!" -- Only four teams remain as the Racers continue their quest for a spot in the final three and a chance at One Million Dollars on THE AMAZING RACE 10, Sunday, Dec. 3 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network
*At the Roadblock, an argument breaks out when one Racer loses faith in their partner. 
*The intensity heightens as Teams depart Morocco and race to their next destination knowing that one team may be eliminated leaving only three teams in the Race to the Finish Line.
* Four teams race for the spot in the final three and the chance to win the million dollars.
* A difficult choice causes one team to hit their emotional breakdown. Will they keep it together or lose it and the race?
*Immediately, the Racers face a difficult Detour causing one Team to hit their emotional breaking point.  Will this Team be able to pull it together or will this hurdle be enough to knock them out of the Race entirely? 
* One team is targetted for elimination by some of the other teams. Will they be knocked out or survive to race another day?
*Finally, one Team feels the coldness of the other Teams who have targeted them for elimination.

Thanks to this picture posted by georgiapeach (original source) I got a better idea of what the benches and windscreens look like.

With that I decided to try a different approach to estimating the angle of the pole's shadow by the giants.

I just realized that this shot is not truly a racer shot.  So the following estimate does not count for much except provide a lower bound of when the BQs had not yet reached the giants.

This shot was taken between 9:50 and 10:10 am (assumes June 22nd)

The estimate is based the shadow of the tip of the pole and GE to get the shadow's angle.

fwiw, it's probably not, but The Love Boat (aka Pacific Princess) is parked in Maremagnum.   Vidcap is not very clear, so tough to match.   :cmas5

My god, I just realized its possible that Bama could win this leg.

If Rob & Kimberly cut out of the tomatoes and head for the other tasks.  Bama could definetly get finished first and head to the Pit Stop.

I don't want that to happen.

I was really hoping that Tyler & James would get first, just barely beating Dustin & Kandice and that we would get to see Dustin & Kandice's expressions while waiting fo for the other two teams to check in.

Thats much more dramatic and sadistic then them just getting to the mat and finding out they are third or fourth.  Knowing that the other team is very close behind.

Just a thought--suppose the art car is what the Giants were delivered in??

Quote

UGH!

Are these times right?:
R/K mid tomato task at 10:22 but probably switch task to Giants (based on Kimberly meltdown)
Bama's mid tomato task at 10:41
R/J unknown times but do Giants
BQ's starting Giants at 10:46

And we know or think that the Giants are closer to pitstop??

So if R/K switch detour options--they could easily be last...but there is that pesky 30 minute penalty....

Peach your PC is working  :cmas26 ?

theres also the possablity that the Bamas switched from mater's to Giants too  :cmas5 ? but as pointed out the pile is pretty well worked over. If the clue is in the tomato wouldn't it be ironic that its in one of the mater's that Rob is pelting back at the crowd  :snicker: ?

I suspect that the finding of the clue in the tomato is some how, in itself, made to be easy.  It's the pelting that makes it so hard.  Kimberly seems to have a low tolerance for adversity so that meltdown was right at their start.  Rob can keep looking.  I think they get in and out of there in 5 min.

I also think Bama and R&K take a lead after finishing the tomato task.  This lead continues into the final leg because they are about one hour ahead of T&J at the Eiffel Tower.  The spoiler shots have them getting their packs at the base of the tower at a picture time about one hour earlier than T&J who are still at the 3rd level.  That sustained lead comes from Bamas and R&K catching a better flight to Paris.

Chateau--thank you for all the timeline stuff--it really helps my poor brain figure it all out!

I know we are right--but I would be happy dancing if some how, some way we were all wrong and the Bama's are gone!

No puddin--my poor hard drive is dead!   :cmas4 But a new one is on the way and I hope to be up and running by Tuesday (I'm at work now)...But that means I won't be able to play tonight, unless I come back to work.  Hmmmm.....
