speculation on the finale
« on: April 23, 2007, 10:11:41 AM »
All guesses on if theres a Fast Forward or who places where etc..can go here.
puddin



I'm just throwing this out there.

I have this gut feeling that the B-52 package drop screams FF.  This is the same as when I felt the van roll-over in HK was a FF due to the fact that TAR would not pay to roll up to 4 vans.

B-52 has much connection with the local Wright Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) in Dayton Ohio.  They are HUGE and maybe there are 4 planes loaded & ready to go except for the box or 2 the team packs for inclusion.

Would a FF fit at this stage of the race?  Could there be 3 FF?  Right now I'm sticking with FF although I feel I'll probably change my mind before the end of the week.

makz3d, didn't Phil say "this is the second of only two fast forwards on the race..." while introducing the Chas FF in hong kong?

Michael, he may have, I just don't remember.  I am easily swayed either way.

Landing in Hong Kong with a sizable lead, Oswald & Danny's only troubles stemmed from a cash shortage as they paid their taxi at Sun Wah Kiu Laundry. After Danny negotiated a discount on the fare, the best friends opened their clue to find the second of two Fast Forwards on the race.

Since I like to  B:) B:) B:) A lot, here is Michael's latest:

Thanks to the awesome apskip we have this:

Quote
MEETING WITH GLENN WEBER AND MARIE LIZAMA
Glenn is expecting to  become a local celebrity on Guam as soon as the relevant episode airs (usually within about 10 hours after U.S. East Coast due to time difference). He got a lot of camera time when the F3 teams booked their flights to Honollulu via Tokyo-Narita on the afternoon of Saturday Dec. 16. The previous day was a big day at Guam International Airport as Uchenna/Joyce, the Guidos and Danny/Oswald all departed with Phil on CO904 through Nagoya Japan to Honolulu. Glenn told me he got a brief opportuntiy to chat with Uchenna and Joyce. Dec. 16 had Glenn as the only NW individual on the 2 ticket counters, I believe by choice since he knew what would be happening. First up was Dustin/Kandice, who booked NW 81 mid-afternoon to Narita and NW10 from there to Honolulu. Charla/Mirna actually booked the same flights through Continental's ticket counter. Last was Eric/Danielle, who had run into a NW 747 pilot who convinced them to take the 20 minute later NW73 to Narita to get the comfort of the 747. After Dustin and Kandice heard about this, they decided to change their booking to do the same. The connect time to NW10 was still quite adedquate. Their production crew of cameraman and soundman just barely made it through customs with their equipment to get on the later flight.

Remember, this is for the last leg (on the way to Hawaii) so wouldn't the order of arrival at the airport indicate the order of arrival that the teams checked into the pit stop? (this idea I actually stole from puddin!)

Don't forget, Mirna and Charla like to go to hotels a lot of the time after leaving the pit stop, so it doesn't necessarily mean anything.

Let me put my 2 cents in.. I found the forum where chevy posted that he saw the teams in Guam, now foxburns  ( I see you in the lurker bar ) posted here  that he wrote to chevy and chevy replied:
* Charla/Mirna were first with (again) a huge lead
Eric/Danielle were next followed by...
BQ's and...
Cha Cha Chas's (still in it in guam apparently)

now I had also sent chevy a private message and even asked him to join us here but never received a reply. So what foxburns  can do to prove that what he posted is for real or not, if he still has the message from chevy, is take a screencap or some proof that chevy ever contacted him?

so for all we know C/M don't even have a big lead?

I completely missed the Guam spoiler for some reason so I wasn't around when the excitement was there..

I mean really.  No offense to you kid.  I can understand people not liking hte team (after all we all have different taste).

But they have had a lot of luck, a lot of bad luck.

Lets see.

1.  First team ever pulled off a plane in the 11 seasons of the race (they conceivable could have finished first for that leg, but afterwards at best 5th.
2.  One of two teams that with provided tickets to ever miss the provided connection, putting them 12 hours back (still finished hte tasks the 2cd fastest of the 6 teams).
3.  Yielded Twice (only the 2cd time that has ever happened Weavers 1st).
4.  Only team to ever be Yielded in a leg and have a penalty placed on that same leg, and even with penalty finished the leg faster then probably ever team (will have to check that out).

wow, when you see a list like that you really realize how horrible they've had it.

Some people say that "this is their own fault". I don't think you can call being pulled off a plane their own fault. Or being yielded...TWICE...my opinion is always changing, sometimes I want them not to be in the F3, other times I want them to be be in the F3. here comes to pervy side to me....it's going to be nice seeing Danielle running around in Guam with her shorts on....

Let me second the thoughts of Michael D. It appears to me that Dustin/Kandice and Eric/Danielle actually did their flights reservations at Guam airport with Northwest Airlines. However. Charla/Mirna did not. Any travel agent could have previously booked the NW flights combination and any ticket agent with a valid plate could ticket it (including Continental who actually did it or the travel agency). Charla/Mirna could easily have been first under the scenario presented. However, in the spirit of true TAR bunching, they will all be even getting off the plane in Honolulu.

Actually, a word on that. I had to wait on U.S. immigration lines in Guam (because I left the transit area, both to talk to Glenn Weber and to take public transportation up to Yigo just south of one gate of Andersen Air Force Base. I observed in Guam numerous groups traveling with one wheelchair individual and in Newark a few such groups zipping through the U.S. citizens line as a result of being given special priority. I think it's absurd, but Charla/Mirna and their cameraman and soundman may benefit from it in Hawaii. I recall reading somewhere (maybe even RFF) that that will not be allowed for the final airport, SFO, so that all teams get a level playing field there.

Alright, so as of now here are my thoughts:

2 possible pit stop scenarios
1. Charla and Mirna
2. Dustin and Kandice
3. Eric and Danielle
4. Danny and Oswald

OR

1. Dustin and Kandice
2. Charla and Mirna
3. Eric and Danielle
4. Danny and Oswald

I'm not sure which one I think is more likely right now, because there really isn't any way to tell.

The only things that get dropped out of a B-52 are 500 or 1000  pound bombs!

OK, thanks to mrspreacher, we have more things that point towards 1st and 2nd place for either D/K or C/M. I'm beginning to suspect that C/M might not have as huge as a lead as we would have imagined by reading the spoilers.

The challenge on the Naval base involved a run through a jungle, and a short helicopter ride: Roadblock?

The challenge at the Air Force base, is part of a toy drop that Guam participates in every December: Detour, or random task all teams must do?

I'm even more extied with this new information.. :wohoo:
where is that damn web promo?

Hey all!

I'm really off base regarding the FF for C/M.  Seeing Charla at the Roadblock was the icing on the cake.  Boy, I really blew it this time.  I did state I would probably change my mind by the end of the week.

Not sure if this is where to put this.

I've seen both Promo Videos.  I am quite irked because it almost seems as if Dustin & Kandice were ignored.  There is only a few seconds of them and I didn't try real hard to find them but they don't seem to be in the cube of 4 finalist.  Even if you check the screen captures there's only 3 or 4 pics of a BQ.

I just felt the need to bring this up.

Is CBS trying to tell us something?
