Good evening, all!  Let's see what we can learn tonight... and laugh at the overall ineptness of these players!   :groan:

I think Nicole is just nasty and sabotaging the game out of spite... not moliness!

Team has won $50,000 out of a possible $70,000 in the "Fruit of the luge" game.  However, there's a problem....more after the break. 

Me thinks Craig sabotaged his round and spoke after the finish line, when he wasn't supposed to.

Ouch, Clay/Bobby and Victoria/Craig each spoke after the finish line.  That means their tries were void.  Players put in $26,000 into the pot.  Pot total is $89,000

Keep in mind the "grape" clue...who got the grape massage?  Bobby I think!

Why would Mark be all set to go and then change his mind so fast?

I can understand Clay maybe...

Tricky with the address!  :ascared

The map of episode 3 is now up. The steel luge took the longest: I had to take a "tour" of Switzerland to figure out it's called a "rodelbahn." A couple things to note:
  • All of the walkabout took place within a block or two from the Telar restaurant. That includes the dry cleaners (see the ad for Lulu cleaners here halfway down the page)
  • Quote
    Good evening, players. Welcome to Santiago's old central train station. You may recognize this architecture; the building was designed and built by Gustave Eiffel.
    No, actually they're in Mapocho station, designed by a different architect (Central Station is still a working train station). Google or Flickr for Estacion Central and Estacion Mapocho and you'll see what I mean; the diagonal bars are an easy giveaway.
  • If Peach is interested, Mapcity is a good street searcher for South American cities.
  • Also, if you tell players "it's already after 4 o'clock," don't be standing next to a wall clock that shows 2:46 p.m.  :res:

Why would they say they were somewhere that they weren't though? For the sake of a clue? maybe?? HMMMM...

Peach is very interested, thank you very much!  :waves:

That's so interesting about the train stations...why would they lie to us? Is it just that the Eiffel connection makes a better story--or is Gustave part of the clue? And why bother about the time, unless it matters?? Hmmmm is right! :lol:

I can't find an interior shot, but they aren't actually in Central Station, they are in the old Central Station. It has been turned into an exhibition hall according to this page here (third photo down, and was remodeled by Gustave Eiffel in 1897 according to this page here (info in yellow section half way down page) so I don't think they were "lying"

The Ebay photo you linked was of the old (pre-Eiffel) Central Station; however, the execution took place in Mapocho. It breaks down like this:
  • From 1857-1897 the station looked like your old photo (album here, history here). It served traffic to the south (still does). Although the last paragraph here casts some doubt, Eiffel generally get the credit for the makeover.
  • The Mapocho station (inaug. 1913) came along later, when traffic to the north became important. It even connected with the Transandino line going to Mendoza (a remnant of that line might show up soon  ;)). It was designed by Emilio Jecquier, who is variously described as having studied under Eiffel/been influenced by Eiffel/etc. (homepage here; gallery and story [spanish] here). This was also the site of the Transiberiano restaurant, where the final dinner/quiz took place, so they only had to walk a few steps to the execution site. Once traffic to the north became unimportant, Central Station took over as the sole hub/terminus.
Do I think they were lying/making a clue? No, like the clock on the wall, I think it's just a bit of sloppiness, nothing more.
