EP6: "We're Going To Trade You For Food Now."
« on: March 14, 2007, 05:12:19 PM »
03/25 "We're Going To Trade You For Food Now."

Bringing this over from the IGN interview
We were in Africa, and the Pit Stop location had to get moved because of logistics. We'd taken a flight to the next location, packed up about forty bags into a propeller charter flight and flew two hours to the next location. As soon as we landed, we got a phone call to say the teams had been held up. They were never gonna make it to the pit stop where we were at. We'd just unloaded all the bags in the middle of the night. So they asked the flight crew if they would fly us back the next morning, and the crew said no; they were gonna go back. So we had to load all the bags back on the plane, take the two hour flight back again, then go out and 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

Most probably the quote is said to a lady... by someone from the last place team? That is, if Episode 5 was a NEL, and the "No money from Phil" rule was brought back and applied to the last place team.

Or, no money was given at the start of the leg, and ala Duke/Lauren, one team was too careless when it came to their money and they were short of cash? If this was the case, and Teri/Ian had not been spending their money wisely, then it could be a reason why they're eliminated here... if Episode 5 was a NEL, that is.

I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

When I was travelling in the wilds of Africa (in my younger days ;)), my friend was offered a pretty good trade of some rather fine camels and a few goats in exchange for me at one point...(a little later and he might have taken them up on it! :rotf:

So maybe it is something like that? Maybe the Masai really want Charla?! Or their own personal BQ! :happy:

Or maybe just a joke in response to the whole bargaining --trade culture there. I have a very nice carved sculpture that I got in "trade" for a pair of sunglasses...

It's an interesting idea, Peach, because the Maasai (intro caps) still practice the reverse dowry or "bride-price." A Maasai man can have more than one wife as long as he can pull the cows out of his wallet. (for Charla and Mirna, though, there would have to be an agreement up front: all sales final, no refunds or exchanges  :happy:)

 ??? I can't make out the wording on this one...what does it say? Can this picture be zoomed bigger?

What is that on the sketch of the arm?  The medical side of me looks at it as an anatomical drawing with veins and artries...but then it could be a sketch of some kind of skin markings....maybe someone from each team is going to have to get that on their arm?

I'm old enough to remember the old game show Concentration but if it's the one drawing plus the other drawing (plus the words) to solve what it says, I need a bigger photo.

It may not be something significant but it's a way of wasting some time before tonight's show (ep 5) comes on, especially if it's running late.   :trampb:

 :thankyou:  Oh thanks Puddin!  In some of the pictures in the past episodes, I've tried doing that and they didn't enlarge (they might not have been your pictures), so I didn't try doing that this time. :rolleyes

I suspect (but can't prove) that these two caps might be the same place. The background looks similar, but I've drawn a blank looking through Maasai photos.

The thing about the Fast Forward is you have to be the first to get to it.

Look at last season, the team that was twice marked for elimination on episodes right before the Fast Forwards were available were to slow to get to it on one time.  ANd only got to do it the 2cd time, because the Cho's convinced the BQ's that if they didn't bea the Cho's getting their they would lose time backtracking.  And even then teh Cho's had to decide to let Mary & David go for it.

Being pulled off the plane when you already have a seat!! That really sucks big time!

Yeah, I do wonder about what could have caused that.

Has a team ever been asked, or made to leave a plane before in the show's history?

I wonder why they need to get off the plane, that's strange...Oh god, the previews always make me want the next 7 days to go by quickly.

If they are really in Tanzania (not that we would know from the stingy darn previews!) and with the Masai--a Fast Forward could be to drink cow milk and blood--a Masai diet staple....

I wonder if U/J don't come in first, but T/I are so far behind that they end up getting eliminated.

Could be that the TPTB did not want one team to gain a huge lead on the others and arranged to have them pulled off the plane.  Never underestimate the power of TPTB!!
