TARA2 Post-Leg 8 Discussion and Favourites poll (*Spoilers!*)
« on: January 10, 2008, 11:00:53 AM »
Just a poll to check out the popularity of the teams here.

My thoughts on Ep 8:(I shall not use nicknames, just shortforms)

-Strangely again, Frankfurt being used as a one-stop place...Old opera house.(probably because of the route the airlines fly?)

-M/R sacrastically or jokingly told A/C at the airport that they were going to Spain or Buenos Aires. A/C looked somewhat surprised.

-Sneaky M/R and P/N that hid the clue and possibly caused other teams behind at the Charles bridge to lose time even though the short hours of operation came next.(They were first and second to find it)...See under teams.

-Natasha's questionable plan of wanting M/R and P/V in the final 3 with them?

-Finding the clue on the charles bridge from the holey statue was challenging task as the clue didnt state excatly where.

-Nice bunching tatics to keep the leaders and the trailling teams as close as possible.

-Odd roadblock in the sense that the teamate could help by pointing the directions?

-Nice phone task that showed some relatives of the racers.

-Detour not so balanced again? 5 teams chose the bow task while only P/N chosed Blow.

-Hate for that train that seperated M/R and A/C.

-Non-elimination leg to save H/T asses again.

Team stats:

-Marc and Rovilson's 6th first place finishes...Credit card prize reward again.

-Adrian and Collin's 5th second place finishes.

-Ann and Diane's 4th third place finishes.

-Paula and Natasha's 3rd fourth place finishes.

-Pamela and Vanessa 1st fifth place finish.

-Henry and Terri 3rd sixth place finishes.

Teams:
-Marc and Rovilson at it again. One-liners, camera hogging and having fun. Sneaky ones who actually hid the clues by putting them deeper into the hole.

-Bad luck again that seperates A/C from M/R( dammed train just like finale of TAR 6 between Freddy/Kendra and Kris/Jon). Usual cool and calm selves.

-Ann and Diane using their usual tatics to move up. They only seem to care about the race and nothing else bothers to them. Lost 2 hours at the Charles Bridge.

-Pamela and Vanessa losing their chill again. Shown having biggest difficulty finding the clue on Charles bridge and losing a few hours(more than 2 hours...). Stupid comments to put themselves down again. However, they seem to have the sisterly bond that might sneak them into the final 3.

-Paula and Natasha having difficulty on this leg, firstly Paula having problems with driving the manual car and Natashas' too focused on her hate for Ann/Diane. Being sneaky to push the box (for the shorter teams to peep inside) away from that was located at the St.Vitus statue and hid the clues deeper inside the holes of the statue. Natashas' been cursing quite a bit now.  Still their usual bright, bubbly and smiley self.

-Worked together pretty well but bad flight that lost them the leg and 2 bunching points could not save them. Have to argue even less and start catching up next leg if to survive 30 mins time penalty. Usual explosive Terri but not as much.(F/F and/or Intersection next leg?)

Thats all. Thanks for reading!  :js:

I don't know who's doing this poll, but it would be much cooler to spell ADRIAN AND COLLIN accurately when you do such a poll.

Leg 8 Commentary:

Travel from Olympic Park in Seoul, Korea to Old Opera House, Frankfurt, Germany and search for their next clue.

Journey of 8088km.

Airport drama.

Ann comments that they need to reach frankfurt by 5pm because "she needs to visit her very sick Aunt" .

M/R reached Frankfurt @ 5pm

P/N reached @ 5.35pm

A/C, A/D and P/V reached @ 6.35pm

Unknown what time H/T reached.

Clue instructs them to travel by train to Prague, Czech Republic, Charles Bridge and search the bridge for a "holey" statue for their next clue.

Train does not leave till 11.38pm and all teams are there except H/T.

Journey of 412km.

Clue instructs them to find Little shop Karlova Street Building 3 for their next clue. Hours of operation until 11am.

M/R interacts with P/N and comments privately that they liked the bunching because they could talk to the other teams and were "sick" of each other.

M/R first to open clue with P/N, A/C and A/D right behind(P/V still looking for the "holey" statue).

Roadblock.

Make their way down to Kinksy Palace in the old town square.

One team member needs to wear an knight armor and with their teammate following them and carrying their bags, make their way across the street to Hotel U Prince to find a damsel in distress.

Rovilson saracastically comments about giving Paula the biggest suit when she requested the smallest one.

Using a rope with a hook on it, teams must first hook their key to save the princess and in return teams received a message from the princess which instructs them to make their way to Town Square of Beroun by train.

A journey of 30km.

M/R, A/C, A/D leave at 12.26pm whereas P/N initally took the wrong train and said to have wasted 40 mins.

P/V finally find their clue after walking the bridge up and down and takes the 3rd train to Beroun.

H/T is behind and have great difficulty finding the clue in the "holey" statue even though having direct looks at it before(someone must have hidden the clue by inserting deeper into the hole).

M/R first to arrive at Beroun Town Square.

Teams have to search the area with the correct picture of the them on a Nokia handphone carried by a local.

They will have to look through video/s of their relatives greeting them and wishing them well.

The local gives the clue to each team after they finish their video/s.

Most touched team was P/V who were surpised and weeped a little bit that their cacausian mum delivered her video to them.

M/R and A/C open the clue at the same time.

Detour. BLOW or BOW.

The clue with instructs them to drive themselves to Nižbor (Village, Beroun) for both detour choices .

In BLOW, teams have to produce 2(1 each) crystal glass with a star-shaped marking on the bottom of the glasses using a machine to receive their next clue. The markings had to be clear and thick.

In BOW, teams had to use a traditional crossbow to shoot 2(1 each) arrows onto a target(about 25 feet away) that has a red/yellowish round target( about diameter of 15cm) of a square cloth( about 50 by 50 cm).

Pamela comments about them choosing the one they think they got skill but when actually they didnt have. (nice P/V moment)

All teams except P/N chose BOW.

M/R are first to complete the detour and the clue instructs them drive themselves to the Karlstejn Castle which is 30km south of Prague.

H/T are only then shown to be on the train to Beroun.


Pitstop:


M/R arrive first at the pitstop after a train crossing them on their way to it. They receive 2 credit cards with 5k cash each as their reward.
Marc jokingly says they are going back to Prague to spend on the clothes the male greeter was wearing.

A/C arrive second to the mat after also being train-crossed and Collin says they are just happy to be at the mat when asked by Allan about their placing.

A/D are third. Ann mumbles about how tiring it isDiane tells how they are enjoying it and not complaning. Ann agrees.

P/N are fourth with their usual girly pit-stop entrance and greetings. Natasha says that its good that they are still here.

P/V are fifth. Pamela says they are just relieved to be on the mat.

H/T completes their detour finally after Terri hits the target and Henry goes on a crazy run like a pet raccoon. Terri finally gets a good laugh.

They made their way to the pitstop and were glad to hear that Allan informed them that it was a non-elimination round and they were still in the race. However, they will receive a 30 min penalty for the next leg if they dont arrive first.

Henry with the last words that he thought only athletic teams, communicative and cooperative teams could win the race and it would be a fluke if they won the race.

Finally, Allan Wu is so much better this season! He is showing us his more humane side!  :lol:  :tup:

The few validators I've run the numbers through, like this one, all state the card numbers are bogus.  :(
Thanks for the summary. I was curious before as to why P/N would hoof it to Hauptwache when the Opera House has its own station; I don't know, maybe it was unseen or inconvenient.

I thought we agreed no spoilers in here until Sat nights 9PM so we non AXN folks have a chance to find and watch it??

Of course--if you spoiler tag it is fine--I just have to resist temptation! Thanks for the save puddin--but sorry for you because I know you didn't want to be spoiled either! :groan:

wow quite big lamp post
Here's a closeup (broadband is best); it's one of the better VR websites I've found. I don't know if it's Emma's lamp--I've found design duplicates--but it's a fun site. This is a match, though; compare the building in the background (and check out the dilapidation from just two years ago  :res:). And here's the guy that keeps it going.  :lol:






the big green lamp statue?

Since we know they go to Hradcany Square and there is an intersection, I'll guess the girls are just waiting for another team to show up.

More tower stuff: compare the first cap to the base of the tower, and the greeter guy to the staircase latticework (haven't matched the platform yet, but it's close).
Too slow! Puddin got me again.  :lol:

Hey guys let me know if there is anything I missed or recapped wrongly about the episode and also give comments about my opinions after you have watched the race.

Thanks a lot.  :js:

Btw, hey TarAsiaFan, you're probably the most appropriate person the comment on my write-ups since you have been doing the recaps and you could probably have a easier time for your ep 8 recap!  ;D

I probably need a clarification on the detour tasks.  :duno:

Next leg:

Rovilson admits to having psychological problems...Thats why hes making those one liners and having an effect on Marc!  :lol:
