Hahaha my fantasy: Sarah runs off with Dallas, Terence goes crazy, says he can't race with her any more, she joins forces with Kelly & Christy and they win the whole thing!

More likely scenario: Dallas romance is actually with Starr, Aja & Ty have been eliminated before this leg (meaning he doesn't say the title), and Kelly & Christy are eliminated either this one or the next if it's NEL :(

I also think Dallas has a romance with Starr and if Aja & Ty aren't eliminated in the Cambodia leg, they're eliminated here.  If this is a non-elimination leg, I think Andrew & Dan are actually the ones that get the Speed Bump, not Kelly & Christy.

Looks like Wikipedia is mistaken and someone else says the quote.  This is a non-elimination leg most likely and I'm willing to bet Andrew & Dan get the Speed Bump.

The Nick and Starr confessional screencaps below are from last weeks episode but were shown during the EP6 preview

eta:
Starr: Nick and I don't take anything personal on the race we're both here to push each other and cross the finish line first we've been able to grow as adults and form this adult relationship

Do you mean last week as in Cambodia or last week as in NZ?  :duno:

I don't think that Summerhill Farm has street lights.... :funny:

Last week in NZ that confessional was shown but tonight, Cambodia, they were shown for this leg. Its what Starr is wearing this episode. Ken and Tina have the same confessional background as well as the clothes they are wearing this leg.

Please Hold While I Singe My Skull
Mother Nature foils one team when a windstorm blows away their Detour.
In helping India’s taxi industry go green, racers turn a little green themselves.
A budding romance between competing racers causes their teammates to question their focus.
One racer lashes out as their team reaches its boiling point.

The CBS preview is up: painting autorickshaws, ironing shirts and finding the groom. I can't quite read the sign at the paint shop.

ETA: Did a bit more confirmation... There's the green and blue banner of Standard Chartered at 2-3 Basant Lok and the Reebok India Company at 6 Basant Lok... this is it guys! (Map upthread updated.)

(Chateau! I do that all the time!) :hugs:

So where are they in the pictures (6) that come directly after the cow in our set? The contemporary shop looking place?

And yes, all the spice/red pepper stuff is in the My nose is on fire ep ep

We may be able to sort this out solely based on the maps--which stuff of Matt's is in old Delhi/Which is in new....

It's a good time to take a hard look at when teams reached the Bayon Temple pitstop and when they will likely be released, all for the purpose of estimating which flights they might get to Bangkok and then on to Delhi. So here is my take on it starting with 0700 arrival on flight 3K595:

Time to Do Each Task Efficiently-
With Camerman and Soundman, Get Through Customs speedily   30 minutes
Taxi from Siem Reap Airport to Gas Pump task                               20 minutes
Gas Pump Task                                                                               10 minutes
Be driven in back of truck to Siem Reap Dock                                 15 minutes
Be driven in motorboat to Kho Andeth                                            30 minutes
DETOUR at Kho Andeth                                                                   30 minutes
Same boat back to land near Angkor Wat                                      20 minutes
Tuk Tuk to Angkor Wat, inlcuding entry formalities                         15 minutes
Find the Echo Chamber                                                                   30 minutes
Transportation to Bayon Temple and find pitstop                           15 minutes
Fudge Factor needed to balance underestimatesof tasks              60 minutes

GRAND TOTAL                                                                                275 minutes, or 4 hours 35 minutes

That translates as follows:
Nick/Starr - ran a near-perfect leg and finished around 1135am
Toni/Dallas - ran a fine leg and finished around 1140am
Terence/Sarah - had bad luck with the boat and lost 15 minutes as a result; finished around 1155am before the half-hour speeding penalty
Ken/Tina - were near the front of the pack until Tina had trouble finding the Echo Chamber; finished maybe 1200pm
Kelly/Christy - were burned by from airport taxi driver not knowing the location; finished maybe 1205pm
Anthony/Dan - screwed up big time on not knowing how to operated the gas pump when no other team had trouble, but made up some time finding the Echo chamber; finished maybe 1215pm.

Decent flight alternatives are:
PG904 REP BKK 0950 1045 connecting to IC854 BKK DEL 1330 1615

It looks like the alternate flight connection for any lagging teams(of which none are seriously so) is:

PG906 1250 1400 REP BKK connecting to TG315 1745 2045 BKK DEL

It looks like there is an extended pitstop of at least 24 hours. Since there are no flights between 850pm and 950am, it is logical to rule out either a 12 or 36 hour pitstop. So teams will be released late evening and have a long time to wait until Siem Reap Airport will be open for morning arrivals. It looks to me that all teams will be on the best flight combination above.
