SEE CBS hype, this just has to be Don  :res:
*One Racer begins showing signs of physical deterioration, prompting the Teammate to step up to the plate. But will it be enough?
*One Racer can't perform at a Roadblock due to physical exhaustion

hmm I thought for sure it was Don.

I would love for it to be Jen, maybe little Rachel

 :angel:  The gates appear to be similar to gates at the JR station (Kansai Airport).  Probably not at airport, but could be another JR station in Osaka.  (Doesn't match any Osaka Subway gates I've googled, yet.)   ;D

JR = Japan Rail

 :duno:  They could be running towards an (elevated) JR station somewhere in Osaka.

Nice catch.  :tup: It's near the Nishi-Umeda station, that might be a possibility for the caps. Map here; they also have a map of the Namba area showing Kuidaore, etc.

Lol  Jen looks pretty pissed at the japanese passengers :P or maybe she had too much caffeine that day? I'm Japanese Aussie here haha. its so awesome that they get to travel to Osaka. Do Ron and Chris know Japanese or a little Japanese? I think it would have been humiliating for them to get eliminated in an Asian country if the Taiwan spoiler is right.

yep. But most Japanese characters are derived from Chinese characters. Oh well, its still a different language altogether. I was hoping they would know some Japanese. lol.

*One Racer can't perform at a Roadblock due to physical exhaustion



If driving a taxi through the congested streets is the Roadblock, how is this physically exhausting??????

And it must be a roadblock since we can see the red roadblock clue in Christina's lap when she is driving.

Perhaps it means that when they finally get to the roadblock and before they read the clue (teams have to decide who is going to do the roadblock before they actually know what they have to do), Don is so physically exhausted he tells Nick that he has to drive since he is "too physically exhausted" to do so.

It's hard to tell from the caps, but if the robot soccer takes place at the Akazawa plant, then it's not too far from the other activities (if you want a PLEN, it's all yours--for $2390  ;D).

 :ascared  This is getting weird.  Maybe, as puddin says, the robots are at the Yodobashi store, which just happens to be just north of Hilton Plaza / Osaka Station.  Weird how all these places are so close together.   :duno:

I think I spotted a candidate for the Ron/Christina crosswalk close by also....   :lol:

haha, do you think that Yodobashi store is big enough  :ascared?
So do you all think our pitstop is the mystery temple, introflash picture place? I can't see where it could fit in as far as a task? *must keep searching*  (:;) :dick

Osaka in the 2007 finals. Twice as exciting as real soccer, and a lot more action than Galaxy is getting out of Beckham for its $250M.  :lol:

 :groan:  stop...stop...my brain hurts.....  :lol:

OK, let me see if I can get this straight:
Roadblock  --->  Taxi
Detour (1)  --->  Robots
Detour (2)  --->  ? (unknown)

So what does that leave:
Kishiwada Castle - Get a clue? / pitstop ? (possiblly)
Rennyu statue Temple - Get a clue? / pitstop (possibly)
Osaka Clown - get a clue on the bridge? / eating task (unlikely, as they are typically roadblocks)
Fugu restaurant - probably only background shot
Racer says something about train?  None of the previews shows anything outside Osaka?

AND DON"T GET ME STARTED ON THAT DAMN DRUM !!!!!!! :pull  :lol3: :lol:  My brain hurts!

I'm leaning towards the eating task as the other detour for some reason - while it's usually a roadblock, there still have been some instances of it being a Detour (sausagefest of TARAS, octopus in TAR 4). If not that, then it could just be a miscellaneous task (which I've been missing in this season, so yay if true).
