Now it looks like a globe Michael  :tup:





Looking at these pictures I am convinced that CBS added the globe to the picture.  Earlier in the thread we were looking for the location of a barrel-like thing on a fence.

It does look like the fence was built for TAR and objects relating to different locations assembled there.  The globes may be added or fixed in different location.  They show a eastern hemisphere for Rachel and a western hemisphere for Nick.

TPTB and the promo editors have been adding shots from many of the previous shows: Don and Nick at the airport (aer lingus from ep 2.)  Ron and Chris jumping for joy (first on the mat in Croatia ep 6)  So the puzzling shot of Rachel with the roadblock clue and a different top may also be from a previous ep; however, ep 11 does seem to be the first time she has been wearing a brown band in her hair so perhaps it is current, but how it fits is anyone's guess.

Something like this ..and will update if we get more clues.


Clues~


DON/NICOLAS, TK/RACHEL AND RON/CHRISTINA HAVE ONE FINAL LEG FOR THE ONE MILLION DOLLAR PRIZE


The Remaining Three Teams Compete in the Final Leg During the Season Finale

*The last three Teams set off on their final leg,
*as one Team that typically works well together experiences their first clash,
*and another Team misreads a vital clue that threatens their position
*In a final Amazing Race leg unlike any homestretch before it, the Racers are surprised to learn upon checkout that their next flight is their last for the entire race: the entire leg, all the way through the finish line, will play out in the city, the wilderness, by the ocean, on glaciers, and in the national parks of Alaska.
*One often combative Team comes together, while one usually cohesive Team clashes.
*One Team misreads a vital clue. Will this lead to the Team's downfall?
*After 10 cities, 4 continents, and nearly 30,000 miles, who will cross the finish line first and win the one million dollar prize?



Teams leaving the C.S.K. Memorial Hall pitstop in Taipei, Taiwan--all teams should be on the same flight




We think one of the first tasks of the day might be to retrieve a clue at the Anchorage Docks, Slowhatch provides a link here



:bar:
   TASK 
Thanks to CBS we now know that the Ice Climb is something all teams must do and thanks to Chateau we know it is early on:
teams travel via Jet Boat to 20-mile Glacier where they will ice-climb the glacier wall to a waiting helicopter
But we already knew that thanks Colby & peach (see first post of this thread for a summary)

Chateau d if: This shot was taken here (thanks to Peach) between 8:50 and 9:30 am (assumes July 29th).
Editing would make it seem that Ron & Chris are first to this task

  Followed by Rachel & TK

Ron & Nick


:bar:
Detour
Thanks to CBS we know this is one of the Detour choices :
Detour in which teams must descend into the hull of a crab boat and search among 500 crabs for one of twenty with a Race-colored target on its underbelly in order to receive their next clue

Chateau d if: This shot was taken between 9:00 and 9:33 am (assumes July 29th).


:bar:
Fish cleaning, Roadblock #1? or Detour choice? Much debate about this..

It appears that Chris is holding the red roadblock clue and she is telling Ron "you can do this"

:bar:
Roadblock #2? Before the finish line? Puzzle? No matter we know this is a Roadblock

Nick

Rachel


Chris

    Ron/ TK/ Don watch , Ron yells "the stress is ON!"
:bar:
Misc~
Chateau d if:   1:32 to 2:40 pm  ( Rachel & TK taxi )



Don comes down on Nick for mis-reading a clue


running running -------- from to where to where is the question






The first three pictures are pickups from previous shows: R/C Ep 4; TK/R ?; D/N ep 2

The last shot of Ron/Chris is of them walking on the walkway whatever in Anchorage.

Nick and Don's are an old shot Gman but TK/Rachel & Chirs/Ron have the CKS Memorial Hall behind them so those pairs are leaving the last pitstop.

Right you are, I was just coming back to correct it.

But there are scenes with Nick and the Round maybe globe and you can see it exists and has not been added to the scene by the editors.  To me it looks like the props are associated with the areas and you have to match which goes where.  Or, and this is a take off on the old find the errors in the picture, find the objects that don't belong in eps from that area.

I have a possible scenerio:

The detour comes first and then teams arrive at the roadblock (possibily near the finish line). Either Rachel/TK or Nick/Don finish first and uTurn Ron/Christina. Then Ron/Christina have to go back to the detour and complete the option they haven't already done (this would explain why Christina is still holding the roadblock clue when Ron is working on the fish).

We think that the U-Turn box is more assoc with the memory task and may well not be an actual U-Turn colav10...

And the Anchorage Golf course is about 30 miles from the Ayleska Resort and so may not be this one...But great job Chateau!! :hearts: At least we know where it is--even if we don't know WHAT it is...  I feel SO much better!  :lol:

But the ski slopes are much closer--and I still REALLY like Colby's road match! I think it is near where they have the fair...

Chateau --I did post the road marker for that fair..maybe that would help? I'll have to find it though...and will stick it here.

I know where this clip was taken.  It is East 5th Ave and they are headed to the dock that Slowhatch found.

The reason I know this is because elsewhere in the clip, just before the van, you can see a big Toyota car dealership go by.

That is Nye Frontier Toyota at 731 East 5th Ave.

I hope so.  A U-Turn in the final leg would be all sort of wrong, especially after the effort to have the tasks post final flight instead of pre-final flight!

BTW, HBD, puddin!
