Hi Alvin! And :welcome:

Yes, we have someone who saw G&T in the airport in Singpore and at that time they were 2 hours ahead of S/V.

You can catch up on page one of this thread!

Thank you georgiapeach for welcoming me to your thread:)

And thank you Anthonyctf for answering my query.

Will there be an equalizer though at India?

Given how cheapskate AXN has been, the helicopter should be a Fast Forward, don't you think?

I don't think that knocking Michael McKay or AXN is warranted. They have a product to develop and like any business they need to have cost constraints to stay in business. This is not Amazing Race-U.S. with an audience of 10 million. ARA is the compilation of small audiences in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Australia and a small part of Indonesia. It's obvious that they don't think they can afford more than a winning team prize of $100,000. It is reasonable that they would want to keep their production costs to a small fraction of that of Amazing Race-U.S..  The production personnel and air travel components are unavoidable and approximately the same as the U.S..  I think that the best tasks are frequently those based on simple things. I don't need to see helicopters. I think the most gripping scenes in any Amazing Race or Amazing Race Asia are when teams have to self-navigate.

I agree with apskip about the most exciting thing in TAR and TARA being the self-navigation. That shows the teams' skills.

We don't know a lot about this leg yet Alvin, but equalizers are always possible!

Equalizers are always fun, except when the team you're rooting for is so far ahead.

Have you found the elephants yet? Kodanad currently only has two elephants: Bharati and Ganesh.

The elephants pay their respects when they pass the temple...awwww.

So the elephants are part of the detour next episode? How about the fish?

I think the next leg will be in Singapore, where Geoff and Tisha will be able to go ahead of the pack. Unless it's a TBC leg.

My speculation is that:

Episode 8: Singapore TBC
Episode 9: India ELIMINATION
Episode 10: NEL
Episode 11: NEL
Episode 12: ELIMINATION
Episode 13: FINALE

Unless they did cut the budget for TARA 3 and decided to have less episodes (or more TBC legs)

Alvin, you might want to read page one of this spoiler thread to catch up with the crowd.  ;)

WE already know exactly WHERE the race goes, and what we all see in the preview which we are researching now.

That syncs with the red buses that passed by in the video. According to Wikitravel, the buses there are red; here's a map with the bus center indicated.

Cochin is known for its beautiful Chinese Fishing Nets:

Nope, Heli isnt the FF. Tattoo was, according to Allan "The first and ONLY Fast foward of this race"
The commentatry goes "a wise chioice of transport..", which means G/T were the only team who took a helicopter ride, S/V didnt.

AH!They took the heli to the airport where they mentioned a 2hr lead over Sam! So thats why they have a HUGE lead!

And after reading that summary on page 1 as you said you would, you will know that this is announced as an 11 leg race. That means only one more NEL or TBC can occur. My bet is that this happens on the next-to-last leg to assure that all teams have a level playing field starting the final leg.
