Instead of Kris/Jon, they're the new Ray/Yolanda. Navigationally challenged, but good at the tasks and with a serious problem in roadblock division (Ray did skydiving (?) and bungee jumping (??) which left Yolanda to perform the final 3 roadblocks). After this leg he has one more roadblock left (I might do some roadblock analysis for this season).


Thats exactly what I was thinking last night. Not only that but is it me or are TK & Rachel invisible?

also wanted to add, no extra clips this week, you see CBS didn't put out the so-called press release this week and with the press release comes the extra clip, so Happy Holidays CBS Ho Ho Ho :res:

Well, that is the pits! I was really hoping for one more clip today...

Great job  puddin and Boingo getting what looks like the pitstop after weeks of work though.

Since TPTB said a "nail-biting" race to the finish line and all the teams seem bunched during the Roadblock--wonder if that is the last task?

And we still have nothing on the Speed-Bump?? I was hoping for some time shots to see when that comes....

I'm more nervous for the Goths--if there is that much bunching then throwing in another task will be nearly impossible to manage...

Without Chateau's insight and protractors we can only guess on the finish times in ep 7 which would translate into depart times for ep 8.

I will try to estimate times based on the changes in sunlight and shadows.  There is a great change in sun direction, almost 90 degrees from the time that Don and Nick arrived and until the Goths arrive, so there is perhaps almost a six to eight hour time span in the arrivals.  So my best guess is:

Don and Nick - 11:30AM

Nat and Jenn - 12:30PM

Ron and Chris - 1:00PM

TK and Rachel - 4:30PM

Kynt and Vyxzin - 5:30 - 6:00PM

So even the Goths should be able to make tdhe 0725 flight from FLO to AMS which would get them into BOM by 2350.  But they might be smart and take the later flight at 0735 which would get them to MXP in time to catch the Alitalia flight to BOM which arrives at 2310.

Not matter when the teams arrive between 2310 and 2350, by the time the find the mini pedicab and get to the gas works the teams will all be bunched up for the night waiting for the "hours of operation" to kick in the next morning!

But just to throw everyone off, the teams may have to go to a ceremonial location first, and present a wedding gift of flowers to the groom before proceeding to the Roadblock.

CBS is playing dirty with us this week by throwing in extranious shots of fish, chinese temples, african art and other stu ff from other TARS and also shot of TK and Rachel running to the pit stop from ep 7.  Sure doesn't help us poor detectives. 

Chateau where are you when we need you :umn:

Here are my sun-angle estimates for the teams check in times in at the Baboli Gardens in Florence
1) Don & Nick at 10:40 am
2) Nate & Jenn at 11:54 am
3) Ron & Christina at 12:54 pm
4) TK & Rachel at 2:05 pm
5) Kynt & Vyxsin at 3:10 pm

Not that i t matters because they will all get to India by 1 am on July 23rd.




This shot was taken between 7:23 and 8:07 am (assumes July 23rd).

Thanks, yes I think it is a bridge for the tramway system.  This line must run southwest/northeast

Most of the lines run southwest/northeast  :groan:

Still looks miraculous to me!

Wish we had a speedbump clue for you to work your magic on...

Thanks for the departure times! :kissy:

Since I know it's Ron & Christina who get eliminated I bet the Speed Bump gets completed during the wait time after landing.

Or it could happen amid tasks and R&C have some big problem.   B:)

Great time captures Chateau!

Since they didn't visit the duomo last episode, anyone think they may go there this time to recieve their clue to catch a flight to Mumbia? I remember they did it in the TAR10 finale in Spain before going to Paris.

 :lol: sounds like a party.

So we see Rachel/TK, Ron/Chris, Don/Nick bunched at the RB so perhaps Kynt arriving and Rachel? waiting in the background? Either Jen/Nate have come and gone, or have not arrived yet, or are out of sight.

Put me in the happy place too please! :hides

I wonder how much on site input there is for the placing of the speedbump? I would think they would want there to be some suspense so it might be later in the segment. But if TPTB want the Goths to live another week....
