This thread is for discussion of Episode 10 only.


Please read the posting guidelines HERE    BEFORE you post in this thread please.

Those who will have not seen the show yet will need to ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK! There will be spoilers about who won, and who was eliminated for sure, and other details about the leg.  You know by now, right?  :lol:

Special THANK YOU's this week go to puddin and Boingo for being the first to bring us the Oman discovery, banzai for the nice analysis of the Hours of Op and for the preview, Janetsaurus_Regina for the Via Ferrata find, apskip for the flights and via ferrata link, Neobie for the Nizwa Fort, and the whole team for all the ideas!


Just a reminder:

Preview info for the NEXT leg should go in the general spoiler thread and NOT be discussed here.  :hugs:  And remember that the eliminated team should ONLY be discussed in this pinned episode thread until Sunday 10AM Singapore time= Sat 10PM  for those of us in the US (East Coast).

Preview from banzai!

In the final couple of episodes we like to let the teams run on their merits without the aid of U Turns, Yields, intersections and so on. May the Best Team Win. 


Quote
Watch out for the next episode. It will be a true cliff hanger!


AXN newsletter:



We know thanks to puddin's find of Muscat, Oman back in September and Boingo's find of Barr Al Jissah Resort from 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


Repost. Is it Oman yet?

1.
Muscat, Oman. Thanks to puddin

2.
Barr Al Jissah Resort located in Muscat, Oman. Thanks to puddin and Boingo

4.
Arab type dhow

And thanks to farwest's vidcaps.

Teams begin in Pune, India. AD/Fuzzie must come in first on this leg or they will receive a 30 minute penalty.

Preview analysis:

Banzai points out:


On the 1st day, Sam got a red T-shirts.


On the 2nd day, Sam, the driver, got a light blue T-shirts.


So this task is on the 1st day.

So the teams have not yet left Pune here...but where are they?

We don't know--they could be at any of these hilltop forts or hilltop temples.

Banzai tells us this must be an Hours of Op:




Since we have two hours of operations, one of them has to be in India. If both of them are in Oman, then it doesn't make sense.

So does this show teams (some anyway :lol:) pleased to see AD/Fuzzie here?? ???



After getting a clue:

Teams travel by train to Mumbai, in order to fly to Oman.

Boingo confirms train is in Pune, meaning teams go to Mumbai by train.



 :umn:  Departure schedule from Pune Railway Station

Is there a task or find a clue in Mumbai?  We don't know...

Apskip gives us flight data Mumbai to Oman:

Quote
WY806 0645 0745 - clearly the best if teams can get to Mumbai airport in time;

GF057 / GF552 - shown previously; this gets in at 1220

IT3127 / WY876  - 1200 1345 BOM JAI connecting with 1450 1550 JAI MCT

That's it. Any other possibilities are essentially just variations of the second or third combinations above.
 

Teams drive themselves:


Possibly to the next Hours of Op in Oman:

Thanks to Neobie!! Nizwa Fort!



where Ida/Tania are in the lead.

360 view of Nizwa Fort

Then there are Detours:
something with carpets?


But where?
Nizwa has a souk (360 View) :
Quote
This beautifully restored fort features an enormous drum-like tower from which spectacular views of the surrounding markets, mosque and mountains may be enjoyed. Nizwa is a convenient centre from which to explore the Interior of Oman with many fascinating forts, wadis, mountains and the desert, all within easy reach. The souk at the foot of the tower is well worth visiting, especially on a Friday morning when the livestock market is very popular.

But so does Mutrah (360 View):
Quote
One of the most impressive souks, or markets in Oman, this one at Mutrah, just along the coast from Muscat, offers a bewildering array of shops selling frankincense, gold, clothes, jewelry, cloth, ornaments, rifles, traditional curved knives or Khanjars, and many other goods.



Where is this?


Is this then a Roadblock? Sam has a clue:


Janetsaurus_Regina shows us that the zipline task is in Via Ferrata: :hearts:
I think the zip wire challenge took place in snake canyon via ferrata in oman. 

apskip gives us this LINK.

MAP:




But do teams go back to our resort?? Is that the Pitstop? Could they have a task there next time?  We don't know... :'(

So join us here to find out--8AM EST!!

I&T find Gandhi first. S&V, G&T walk too far. A&F go straight to the bank, without passing the statue.

All teams leave Pune for Oman! Same flight.

Teams look for the clue in the fort. I&T get it first, head for Muzraq Souk?

G&T muscle their way into S&V's cab, anticipating an Intersection ahead. Keep your friends close, and your enemies, in the same vehicle.

A&F still looking for clue.

Lovers, now is not the time for a spat!

Detour: carpet or count it.

Carpet: match the carpets with a camera

Count it: count the number of dried limes in a basket.

I&T count it.

S&V and G&T continue their alliance. Counting.

A&F counting as well.

I&T must count again!

S&V get it wrong. As do G&T.

Geoff decides to do the carpet. Hope he knows what he's doing.

Proof that Geoff is Pinoy: he refers to the rats as "friends."

G&T spend 20 minutes with the carpets, return to the limes.

No one has the right count yet.


S&V get it : 1,601. They drive to Wadi, Tanuf. Alliance broken.

G&T go back to the carpet! This has to be a TAR/TARA record!

I&T get the number right.

S&V seem lost.

Tish is getting pissed. I cannot believe they're going back to the limes! This IS a record!

Must I watch Miss Universe do her rodent impression again?

The baskets do have different numbers! A&F leave G&T behind at the limes.

S&V are lost!

G&T finish the limes detour, finally!

I&T are also lost, but I have to say, they're funnier than the other teams.

G&T, S&V, I&T and A&F are all lost together. Can you believe it--bunching while being lost?

ROadblock: traverse the wadi tanuf canyon to get the clue and then pull yourself back

Sam and Ida do it first. Sam doesn't have upper arm strength! Ida kicks his butt!
