OH Oh OH!!!

I just saw that apply to be on the Amazing Race commercial! I think there is a BUNCH of new stuff in there!

I saw a forward bungee over a waterfall from a pinkish platform that didn't ring a bell--and I saw the PONTE VECCHIO in Florence!
:happy:

If someone can screencap--it is in Kid Nation almost at the end--just before the Town Council begins!

:hearts:

oops--not really EP 2 but I got excited... :-[

I have it let me go look  :waves:

 ;D  Racers running past a Netherlands mDDM motorcar (train).  Not sure exactly where these double-decker trains go to / come from in Holland.   :lol:

Its sort of shaped like a large television, that was my first thought but it seems pretty dangerous  :lol:

 :lol:  TV   :lol3:   I thought it was a piece of sculpture... a bronze blob ....  it's not that big,  just looks that way with the wide angle lens.   :knuckles:   :groan: ???

From the clips it looks like the teams doing the pole vault roadblock are jumping in different directions (Jenny and Grandpa are jumping left to right; the others right to left).  I wonder if to complete the roadblock you have to jump over the canal and then jump back.

Jenny is in front of a canal pulling on a block and tackel to fift something up to a canal house.  Could this be one part of a detour: lift or shift?

I thought somewhere in the TAR12 Spoiler thread someone mentioned the Anne Frank house.  That is in Amsterdam.  Could it be  a part of the detour with hoisting stuff to the 3rd floor?

that large black item they are hoisting does appear to be somewhere in Amsterdam proper.  In the background it looks like there is just the top of  a canal boat and the architecture of the buildings looks like Amsterdam.  walking along the canals in Amsterdam is still pretty fresh in my mind after being there last month.   I don't think they are in front the Anne Frank House.  their is  stairway there but I don't think it matches.  They could be in the general area though.   The Anne Frank house could be a location where they pick up a route marker which tells them to do something nearby.

Certainly not the Anne Frank house  but could be on the same street.  The task could be part of a detour; the lift part.  Looks like one team member may have to run up to the third floor and be there to receive the large TV set the other member has to hoist up using a block and tackle arrangement (it would be too hard to do just with a simple pulley).  We have Jenny hoisting (must be hot she is down to her tank top!) in one scene and the Goths celebrating after completing the task (rope piled at foot of the stairs).  So that is at least two teams doing the Lift.

In the pole vault it is certainly the Roadblock.  Grandson Nickolas is holding a red roadblock clue marker. 

We have seen Jenny and Grandpa vaulting from Left to Right (both land in the water) so do they have to do it again until the land safely.  Then we have Jason, Kynt, and one of the blondes jumping from right to left.  Does the team member have to jump first over and then back before completing the task?  Other people seen in the background standing and some jumping all are wearing orange shirts so must be part of a club or team which is monitoring the event.

After the pole vault, the teams seem next to have to peddle a bike-cart from the sporting venue to the mat at the marina.  We have seen Jenny in the cart with Nathan peddling, she is muddy and the two backpacks are in the cart with her.  Same is true with the two sisters.  Julia is peddling I think.

A clue to where they are may lie if we can identify the license plate with has black letters on yellow field.  Next to the EU symbol with the N for Netherlands are the letters SR SD 20  Of course, it could come from anywhere in the Netherlands.

Jason and Lorena look happy as larks, high fiving, at the Marina mat.  Winners?

That's either Shana or Jennifer.

Those others with orange shirts must be members of some sport club at which the roadblock is done.

No it must come right after the mud bath/roadblock Michael -- this must be how they have to get to the pitstop. See the mud on Shana?

Right now I am betting on  Pat and Kate being eliminated but there still is a chance that Jenn and Nathan and Blondes are 9th and 10th

OK so it looks like the sisters aren't in first after all since they are somewhere around Kate and Pat who appear to be further behind. Maybe the sisters are just glad that they didn't get eliminated.

Ronald and Christina are about to have that blowout that we saw in the preview. And it appears that Pat/Kate are bringing up the rear. Should be an interesting finish.
Just here to visit.

 :ty3: It looks like they're riding the regular bikes from downtown to Weregouw, then bus #30 to Ransdorp. I can't quite hear Ron reading the route info.
