99% of me believe that Sam and Vince won this year (the other 1% is still hoping it was Geoff and Tish) because of the Sony Cybershot commercial the two did. The same thing happened last year with Collin and Adrian despite earlier denials from AXN when the ad came out.

Sony is a major sponsor of the race, with their cameras in use throughout. They also provided some of the prizes for the winners of several legs. Having said all that, why would they pick a non-winning tandem to endorse their product?

If indeed this speculation is turns out to be true, it's okay with me. At least it was not the sister act of Henrietta and Bernie!!!

 :wohoo:

yah i've also noticed that hehe..

but is it a tradition?? coz zabrina and joejer didnt do the commercial i think.. hehe..
but i have 80% feeling that sam and vince will win..

Geoff and Tish till the end!!!

Okay here is some info on the Macau Tower bungy from someone we know who did it recently: :ty3:

Quote
You could be up, suited, jumped and on your way in 30-45 minutes easily,
provided no lines, etc.

Changing room is big, but only one jump at a time. Getting hooked up, jumping,
and unhooked takes most of that time.

From the front door, you have to go downstairs, cross a decent sized tunnel, an
catch the elevator up. From hitting the front door, moving quickly, and knowing
exactly where to go an assuming elevator was waiting for you, you could be up
top ready to change in 15 minutes I say. Rest of time to suit up, jump, get
unhooked and not dawdle.

Time in between jumps needed?

Quote
Once down, getting unhooked and off the mat, plus reeling the line back up, 5-8
minutes?



ALSO: Paying extra few bucks for premium seating on hydrofoil critical. They let
premium berth FULLY disembark before standard.

So after the Macau tower skyjump, G/T rush to ferry terminal and take an earlier ferry than the other teams. Then, they ALSO take an earlier flight which is probably HK to India via S'pore?

Then since they're on an earlier flight, when they stop at s'pore they say they have 2hr lead? Bingo???

ryaniiez, you are essentially correct except that it is more like 3 hours earlier arrival in Singapore for Geoff/Tisha. If you want the details, please see my posts #1183 and 1189 on this thread.

And we don't yet how G&T get to HK, they may take a helicopter here. And It will be Turbojet for the other racers, which is a hydrofoil not a ferry....

I emailed the Macau Tourist Borad to be absolutely sure that we were not missing a public way for G&T to get directly to the airport, and this is their reply:

Quote
Thank you for your email enquiry.

 

The helicopter just flies from Macau to the Hong Kong Shun Tak Centre.  You may choose to take the helicopter or by ferry from Macau to Hong Kong and then by airport express to the Hong Kong airport.  Please visit the following link for your information:

http://www.macautourism.gov.mo/en/info/get2macau.php >> By Air / By Sea

 

Best Regards,

Public Relations Division

Macau Government Tourist Office

So having ruled that out, I think the Boingo's match to the Casino helicopter tells us that the helicopter was in fact the way that G&T managed to get to the airport in a timely way.

Did the teams PitStop at the Casino? How did they manage this? A lucky contact? A fan? It will be so much fun to see.  :jumpy:

This is why I love this forum. Sure, it's a little short on snark, but your pursuit of clues unfurls like an episode of CSI/NCIS/Numbers and all those other detective TV series. :ascared

Peach, technically there are differences between hydoroils and Tubo-Jets. However, sometimes ferry builders incorporate parts of both. Such as in Hong Kong/Macau, where the "turbo-jets" going from Macau to Hong Kong airport look like this:

Hong Kong Area Turbo-Jet fleet

To me, that looks a lot like a hydrofoil even though it technically isn't.

And we are all right! :funny:

On their vessel page they call them "Catamaran ferries" and "Hydrofoil ferries" and for me that's almost TMI...

Newsletter is out!  :jumpy:



oh no, Ida and Tania don't look so happy...   :'(

And the ride of their life?  G&T on the helicopter--just hype or does that really make the difference?  Or something else entirely? A 16 minute ride to the airport doesn't classify as the "ride of their life"--or does it??

The lead they desire? Odd phrasing if it is G&T, as they are already in the lead... ???

"Lead they desire" to me suggests Ida and Tania who need a win to avoid their penalty. It could refer to AD and Fuzzie who haven't won yet, but they don't seem too fazed, as long as they aren't last they are happy...

By request and thanks to the newsletter, the pitstop could be Bolghatty Palace

Bolghatty Palace:

The Bolghatty palace is a quintessential Dutch palace located on the picturesque island of Bolghatty. This island can be reached by a short boat ride from the mainland. Today, this magnificent palace has been converted to a heritage hotel and is managed by the Kerala Tourism Development Corporation. The island is conspicuous by a miniature golf course and offers breathtaking views of Cochin harbour. There is round the clock boat service linking the island with the mainland.

Ida/Tania do need a win, but since that is a low probabilty because they can't control how the top teams do they should be aiming to beat at least one team, such as AD/Fuzzie, by at least 30 minutes. This means making up 30 minutes on AD/Fuzzie. They will get the courtesy of an even start from the airport bunching that applies until they exit Cochin airport. Amazing Race Asia legs vary widely in times if there is a large luck-based component. Their best chance at making up time will come if there is a serious luck-based task.

Thank you SO much for finding that puddin! Heee...she found it in about 30 minutes of looking after I asked for some help. :funny:

And thanks too to Chateau and Boingo for all the GE help today! :kuss:

But yes, I just saw in a Google alert for TARA 3  that the pitstop was found by JonLover apparently earlier today, so credit to him for the first find.

here is a closeup of the wall and the lights from the newsletter--


and here is a little different angle, but I still don't see that wall.

On another front guys I think we have actually had the location of one of the next 2 legs staring us in the face ever since the Intro caps came out! :groan:

Puddin and I were just talking about the next leg, and we mentioned the bathing huts, but couldn't remember if they were for sure old.

In the flurry of the Intro cap frenzy, we all commented on the bathing huts,


which we quickly ID'd in Cape Town.

The colored bathing huts are in Cape Town, aren't they? And TARA went to Cape Town--did we ever see those?

http://www.allposters.com/-sp/Colorful-Bathing-Huts-Cape-Town-South-Africa-Posters_i1688217_.htm ???

The water buffalo could be from last season's task couldn't it?

I assumed both of those were old.

The bathing huts are Cape Town: a suburb called Muizenberg.

Knowing that TARA 2 went to Cape Town I know I for one discounted those as being from there (since I missed that episode).

But here are the season 1 Introcaps:
http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,15379.msg350785.html#msg350785

and here are season 2 Introcaps:
http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,15379.msg350788.html#msg350788

And I just looked through the AXN photos from TARA2 , and in all of that our huts are nowhere to be seen.

And I just saw that banzai also was questioning this earlier as well:ascared

SO given that,  and our lovely Cape Buffalo,
Quote
We also have what Slowhatch identified as Cape Buffalo:

Are we sure they're water buffalo and not Cape buffalo?


These three Intro caps could just as well be in South Africa as East Africa:






I think we are perhaps safe in saying that one of the next two legs will be in CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA and not in East Africa as I proposed earlier.

And given that we know also from the Intro caps that teams are going to MUSCAT, OMAN   I think we may have our next 2 legs!  :yess:

We know thanks to puddin's and Boingo's work on the Intro screencaps that they are going to Muscat, Oman.  :hearts:
http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,15379.msg350220.html#msg350220

:jumpy:  This is the Barr Al Jissah Resort - Muscat, Oman

But we have not yet seen that Sony AXN commercial anywhere, so if you have a way to share it with us, please do!

Hi!  :waves:  You asked for the commercial? Here it is. It's 1:29 minutes long and commercials are normally under a minute right? So maybe they did win?
