My opinion of this leg

Congrats for the 1st place for G/T
The Dance detour helps them a lot

S/V do a great job but I am surprise that
they don't know the animals in the Chinese zodiac

AD / Fuzzie are quite lucky to find a taxi after the Chance Detour
Help them to the 3rd Place

H/B was unlucky that have been yieided
But I am pretty sure that if ther are 1st at Detour.......The will yield someone

Lucky I/T NEL Again
I am quite happy with it becoz the are very intersting to see

Did you catch the name of the casino Anthony?

And I just love the wonderful way I&T are running this race. They are a joy to watch.

Did teams share some $$ with them, or did they have to beg?

and if anyone wants to talk about next week, we are over in spoilers! :waves:

But even though this has been one tough race, it was great to see how much Tania and Ida showed how much they still wanted to stay in the race at the pit stop. When you've made it this far, you might as well go as far as you can go. And believe me...there's still quite a ways too!

So it means, "there's a way for them to catch up". Hmm. It's the hours of operation.  :tup:

I thought it just meant there is "still quite a ways to go, too" --as in still a long way to travel.... but :duno:

I messed up on this spoiler. I saw a logo on the window. But I heard there are so many casino in Macau so I didn't bring up the subject.   :groan:

You can see their logo on the front page.

Well gosh banzai, I don't know if we can ever forgive you? :lol3: :lol3:

You see everything and if that is the only thing you ever don't mention you will still be a miracle worker! So no worries!  :kuss:

Cause I sure didn't see it at all!  :-[

I just could have stayed out of the casino bedrooms looking at the curtains is all!  :lol:

Thank you to all those who provided as-viewed-or-just-after reports of this episode. I want to add a few things that I haven't seen in print yet:

Pitstop release times were:

Sam/Vince 547am
Bernie/Henry 653am
Geoff/Tisha 712am
AD/Fuzzie 724am
Ida/Tania 957am

Now, when teams were sent to deliver the purchased fish, what we are seeing is a bunching point designed to almost get Ida/Tania into the game. Sam and Vince reached there soon after 6am. They stated "it will be 8 hours until this (hours of operation)" starts. Their arithmetic obviously wasn't working well with no calculator provided because those hours were 11am to 7pm.  The next 3 other teams would get there between about 710am and 740am. Ida/Tania should have been able to get there well before 11am, but they did not. Why? Does anybody know?

Vince/Sam on hearing of the yielding of Bernie/Henry talked about a team that was their big "competitor". It seems to me in that context that they were referring to Bernie/Henry, but there is a slight chance they meant Geoff/Tisha. Bernie came down from the Macau Tower calling herself Lara Croft Tower Raider; I thought that was cute. The task there was to climb up protected inside from the 61st to 77th floor, then be outside the rest of the way up. Something in the background mentioned 150 steps. Neither Fuzzie nor Tania had to do the outside part because of the deterioration of the weather and lightning. They just got their clues and missed having to do some significant climbing.

The DETOUR was titled CHANCE or DANCE. If it were me, unless I was a poor dancer I would have taken the DANCE option because you have complete control over your own fate. CHANCE is the random luck-based option. Besides changing to costumes that took longer than changing to the Lion Dance costume, the Blackjack-playing teams would on average take 18 hands to reach 9 wins. At maybe one minute per hand, plus a 2 minute offset for the costume difference, playing Blackjack takes 20 minutes. The Lion Dance was significantly quicker for Geoff and Tisha.

Based on the darkness, all the pitstop times are going to come in after 6pm and I think Ida/Tania will be in the neighborhood of 7pm. They made up a lot of time due to the hours of operation.

that's why i put on my recap that the sam and vince left before dusk which is roughly 3 AM-ish. +8hrs would be 11AM.

I think Ida and Tania spent some time begging for money so they didn't make it before 11 AM.

not to mention that dealer has to shuffle the cards a number of times during a game. dance is the right move here. the steps are not that complicated and people can be forgiving in such tasks.

And I just love the wonderful way I&T are running this race. They are a joy to watch.

Did teams share some $$ with them, or did they have to beg?


At the pitstop, H&B, A&D and S&V pooled their money together and gave HK$300. Ida and Tania were a little snitty when they said that only 3 teams gave them money. But when they got to the first cluebox, they found that G&T had left even more money for them. (Methinks that G&T weren't invited to join the Ida/Tania fund.)

If I'm not mistaken, they received HK$500 from the teams and more than HK$300 from passersby in Hong Kong.

We guess--but we don't know for sure until we see what time they leave this week...

tarafanatic. you have already seen my estimate of the epsiode 7 pitstop times because it was in my post that you referenced above. "Based on the darkness, all the pitstop times are going to come in after 6pm and I think Ida/Tania will be in the neighborhood of 7pm."
