And I don't think CBS is counting Taiwan as China.
It better not. Taiwan is not part of China as much as the Communists would like to think it is. It has its own democratically-elected government.

I agree totally--but there was discussion elsewhere that we could get  around the FIVE new country thing if TPTB were counting Taiwan as China.  (:;)

I'm not entirely sure, but I think I saw a new promo during the Jets game. Well, the promo was the same, but it had some new voiceover from the game announcers. They said something about a team quitting. Did anyone catch it?

Early in the game. Yeah, they were talking about Ron's hernia and I stopped listening since I figured it was nothing new, but then in the end they talked about someone quitting. Or maybe I heard them wrong and I'm just going crazy.  :lol:

Taiwan is its own country. China is the only one in the world that thinks it's part of them.

I got a couple of hits for Bingo; the one that makes sense is the first stop on the route to Bobo.

And if you go on to Google, there is one reference to Bingo, 80 kms west of O. and a "site used in the Amazing Race 2007"

Who woulda known that Bingo was a town?

I think that the dynamic involved here is World Race Productions trying to suck up to China(the mainland variety), which has been the site of several amazing Race  legs in the past. WRP wants to maintain the relationship for the future and to name Taiwan as a "new country" would alienate China. So they ducked the question by not naming Taiwan as a new country even though they clearly are.

Disagree! :lol:

I'm going with no other new African country...I think the reporter screwed that one up.

But really--we don't know? So best to be prepared either way it goes! :yess:

Is it me or what but it seems 3rd team to be eliminated is a cursed for F/F teams....   :umn:

Excluding the family edition, 7/11 are F/F teams that are the 3rd team to be eliminated...

And usually its down to some mistakes and in this case Julia actually told Lorena how to milk the camel... :pull

But overall, this episode was pretty cool due to the 5-way battle to the pitstop...That was funny man  :lol3:

I want to attempt a guess at when the first finishing team did so and when the 8th team did so. Here's my timeline:

6am ticket Office Opens
7am Train leaves Ouagadougou station (pure guess)
8am arrival at Bingo (assumes train moving at 30 miles per hour)
830am First team completes Camel milking
915am Last team completes Camel milking
900am First team completes Teach/Learn
945am Last team completes Teach/Learn
915am First team at Pitstop
1000am 8th team at Pitstop

the implications of this are on the completion of the next pitstop. Teams have to be at Ouagadougou airport before 11pm on the next evening(July 15) if they are able to catch the Air France flight to Paris. With a 12 hours pitstop, they have a maximum of 2 hours to get to tasks, do tasks and get back to the airport. My conclusion is that it isn't going to happen and World Race Productions, anticipating that, schedules a 24 hour pitstop and they fly back to Paris the evening of July 16.

Anybody's thoughts on the above timeline are welcome.
