Two more things...

I think the "logs" we see the BQ's trundling around are really probably rolled up straw mats that they use for drying cloves...it can be seen in one of puddins pics upstream and I had a great one that unfortunately I can't access from work but that's my guess anyway!


And how could I forget my sweetie-pie baby with the nasty big bottle--if he is an orphan somewhere and Madonna or Joli or U/J don't want him--I do! I do! :hearts:

Though wouldn't it be kind of awesome if say this group (U & J, Eric & Danielle, Joe & Bill and Teri & Ian) are nearly a day behind.  And that somehow, Eric & Danielle manage by Izad's spoiled episode, to catch back up while the otherss slowly get eliminated and why Uchenna & Joyce are still so far behind in that episode.

I agree with this line of thinking. I do not believe that the producers manipulate anything except airplane flights and boardings(that flight to Singapore that would have given Colin and Christie a connection to Manila and unbeatable lead arrived just slightly too late; the momentous pull-back-in in San Juan). I think that whichever of Eric/Danielle, Charla/Mirna, Dustin/Kandice and Oswald/Danny does not get into the lead group by the end of this episode will have to move up later via Fast Forward.

There will be a reckoning in Kuala Lumpur, where the only remaining team not in my above group, Uchenna and Joyce, is expected to be 17 hours behind.


NOTE ADDED BY EDIT: Ha, ha, ha. My own words come back to haunt me. It's so obvious that the producers manipulate the "weather conditions" to prevent the dhows from sailing so that Charla/Mirna cannot get the larger lead that their risk-taking deserved.

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"



Time will tell  :wohoo:



Do we have any proof that this happened this episode???

I think what we saw was when the teams were TRYING to fly to Tanzania and couldn't leave until the next day

This really doesn't sound like this episode.  We have Phil there in all is glory at the Old Fort waiting to greet Schmirma and the others.  When the first team arrives it is perhaps late afternoon - and he is still there the next morning when Bill and Joe finally arrive.  Besides Zanzibar is not connected anywheres by a nine hour road trip. 

May be interesting in the next leg, if the first teams C/M and the Chas leave before the last teams arrive.

I think it was here--not even a greeter for company!

So guess we'll not get to see much of Tanzania except a little more in Zanzibar next week.

Wonder if we will end up with missing screencaps that properly go with the missing leg? (dolphin, sweetie-pie baby with icky bottle, henna painting and hair plaiting?)

Just finished watching.
Quote from: Apskip
What you saw was a producer-invented strategic delay to make sure that what happened in Thailand in AR1 did not happen in Tanzania in AR11. There was no really bad weather.
Agreed.  I can't believe what I saw is what the producers wanted. The problems with a wide-open field:
  • The risk of a "breakaway" lead team that no amount of editing can cover up
  • It's a hassle for the crew (already mentioned by Phil)
  • No drama for the viewers
  • A ripple effect in future legs
Charter flights or pre-arranged seats would have helped this leg; whoever did the advance work missed a few things.

I'm not sure if this is the mystery pitstop or just the next destination, but I'll throw it in this thread. Producers give "special thanks" to the Moivaro Lodge in Arusha, which would maybe be 2 hrs. by plane.
