Yeah, but isn't it speculation that the blondes are behind R/C? Peach, how do you KNOw that there was a F/F team in Dubrovnik?

Sorry North! That's what I get for posting quickly on the fly while working.

The F/F question is a bit tricky. As y'all know, we have different 4 sets of photos from Croatia, and NONE of them show a F/F team.

However, our own source said early on (when her memory of events was the freshest) that she thought there was a  F/F team and thought there may have been a blonde as well. It is important to remember that this is based on a quick look at the production sheet which showed the teams that had already gone past TK/Rachel--and it was the Goths and not the other teams that stuck in her memory. She also had the opportunity to see several teams later on--but all at a great distance and was unable to identify them individually. She and I have discussed this since then, and while she thinks there was a F/F team, she can't be 100% sure.  She always said too that there were 6 teams, with a possibility of a seventh since she was never in one place where she could see ALL the teams at the same time.  As we know now, she was correct on her original impression of SIX teams.

So the long answer is we DON'T know for sure. But she has been incredibly accurate about every single thing else she has told us--so I think it is reasonable to go with her initial recollection of what she saw and heard from hanging around production and TK/Rachel that day. And you know---even if she turns out to be wrong about this one thing, it will never lessen the incredible amount of information, descriptions, and photos she has shared with us. She literally spent not hours but days going over single detail with me of what she saw and heard and patiently answering my thousands of questions. She is solely responsible for our being able to share all the details of each Detour and the Roadblock with you all--right down to the exact locations and exact description of the tasks. So honestly--we all owe her our very best thanks for all she shared with us.

I'm more worried about third and fourth actually.

Happens a lot.  To real couples.  In fact many of the married couples have done this one the race.

I think I'm gona drink in celebration that my record isn't over!  :cmas26 I kept up hope that Nate and Jen wuld pull through for me, and they did! But Peach, I absolutly agree with you. Youre sorce (Elian right?) has done so much for the Croatia spoiling. I'm greatfull for all she's done. The hours of recolection thatr she spent, it is easy to make a sdmall mistake. It actually kept it intresting tonight. I'm willing to bet she remembered seeing Jennifer's blonde hair, and just thought 2 LA blondes. Her credibility is not at all leseened by tonight. Thanks for getting back to me though, even though I just came down to see it afterwards  :cmas20

OK, is Phil a  big fat liar, or is it just me.

Phil states that Azaria & Hendekea were the first to arrive (last Pit Stop) at 6:45pm, and of course are the first to leave on this episode at 6:45am.

With arrival times last week of (If Phil isn't lying) of 6:45pm to 7:56pm.  Not counting Lorena & Jason still.

But he has to be lying.  The sunset for the 18th of July 2007 is 6:36pm.  SO unless this was a long Pit Stop 30 plus hours (which we don't think (I hope).  Then this Pit Stop was less tehn 12 hours.  I would guess about 10.

Has that ever happened before?

Also for Pit Stop arrival this week the sunset for Vilnius is 9:42pm.  So I would guess (and Chateau can be more specific) that Nic & Donald got there between 9:20 and 9:35pm.

Yeah I know I have the wrong dates, but the time difference shouldn't be more then 10 minutes.

Just guessing:  Teams finished at the Hôtel de Ville between 3 and 6 pm on the 15th of July.  So an ordinary 12-hour Pit Stop would release the teams between 3 and 6 am on the 16th of July.  But Phil says they get released between 6:45 and 7:56 am.  So I would call that a 14 hour Pit Stop.  Why?  Maybe wild animals would eat them in the darkness of 4 am just outside the gates of city hall.   :cmaslol

Teams  end up roaming around the city all day long until their 10:45 pm flight.  Seams like an unnecessary delay to me.   :cmas5

Could be the city is not safe at night. Perhaps the producers took that into consideration. Or there could have been unspoken delays like Phil running out of bronzer.

Chateau has pointed out to me elsewhere that the date of July 17th refers to the onging flights out of CDG--NOT to the originating flight in Ouagadougou.
So the teams still left on the 16th, travelled from CDG to Vilnius on the 17th, and arrived on the 17th. So the extended pitstop must have been in Lithuania not Ouagadougou.
