Theres still something I'm not reading right about Phils interview
Phil arrives at the original Pitstop in the dead of night
Plans change, logistics..teams can't make it to the pitstop which is a 2 hour flight away or 9 hours driving?Phil asks the crew if they could fly them back in the morning
Crew says no
So Phil & production fly back with the crew at night and get to the new pitstop at 3am?
then Phil & crew go out in the middle of the night for the pit stop, having not been to bed at all.
"There was no facility for any of us, like chairs or any of that. So at one point there was 12 of us, cameramen and production people, all tightly packed onto the mat, which was lying in a grassy area, being absolutely annihilated at 3:00 am by mosquitoes"
If Phil asked the crew to fly them back in the morning then he must know that the teams would be arriving in the morning at the pitstop so YEAH it just maybe that like we originally thought
....( God help me
) that the teams that we saw on the first flight BQ's/ Chas, then Charla/Mirna and the Cha's meeting up somewhere to take the Dhow trip to God knows where that afterall this craziness that the answer was right infront of our eyes and the original scenario of
4th) U/J (dusk)
5th ) Eric/Dee ( pitch black )
6th) Guidos ( Phil: in this race your going to see an amazing finish between 2 underdog teams, racing neck and neck to come in )
7th) Teri/ Ian " losers go home"
Time will tell
