Leg 1 part 1 Summary:

10 teams start on a race around the world at Ben Gurion airport in Israel.

The teams are:

Elena (24) & Liran (20) - Beauty Queens
Guy (30) & Shay (32) – Business Partners, young fit attractive guys
Allen (32) & Inbal (26) – Formerly Dating, Claim to have a good relationship, they don't
Eliana (33) & Yael(32) – Friends, wealthy successful women
Gil (54) & Tom (27) – Step Father/Daughter
Maor (24) & Asher (24) – Friends, the "uncultured Israeli" stereotype
Hadas (25) & Inbal (24) – Friends, the blondes
Michal (35) & Ran (39) – Married Parents, very aggressive couple
Hannah (55) & Margalit (62) – Kibbutz Members/Life long friends, naïve elderly women and doesn't seem to be aware that they are in a race
Amichay(33) & Maya (30) – Dating, Strong guy and his whiny useless girlfriend that wants to get married already (Jason & Lorena anyone?)

After a long boring speech from the host teams have to get to a stand in the airport and randomly pick an envelope containing tickets to one of two flights to Port Elizabeth, South Africa. One arriving at 12:50 AM and one arriving at 14:50 PM.

Teams on the first flight: Beauty Queens, Blonds, Eliana&Yael, Amichay&Maya, Hannah&Margalit
Teams in the second flight: Gil&Tom,Guy&Shay,Michal&Ran,Maor&Asher, Allen&Inbal.

After arriving to Port Elizabeth teams have to locate a marked vehicle and drive themselves for the first rout marker at Kragga Kamma Park:
Teams have to follow a marked course over swamps and then attach a log to their car using a rope. Teams then had to drive a further distance dragging the log behind them to get their next clue.

The blondes are the first to arrive, they quickly go through the course but foolishly tied the log too tightly to their vehicle and couldn't untie at the end point, Allowing both Amichay & Maya and Eliana & Yael to pass right through them.
Hannah & Margalit where the 4th team to arrive but got stuck in the mud and had trouble operating their vehicle, when the beauty queens arrive Elena insisted to stop and help them to Liran's dismay, not being able to help them Liran insisted they have to leave and drove off, leaving the elderly women stuck in the mud.

After being passed also by the beauty queens the blonds succeeded to cut through the rope with a broken mirror and got their next clue guiding them to Nomathamsanqa village.
In Nomathamsanqa teams have to locate a local fruit stand and carry a basket of fruit on their heads to the Sangoma priestess to receive their next clue.
Amichay & Maya where the first to arrive, Maya who where scared to get out of the car for fear of the locals, had a lot of difficulty with the task but in the end accomplished the goal and mumbled something about feeling spiritual (Whatever…), the teams had to head up to Tsitsikamma park and receive their next clue.
Both Eliana&Yael and the beauty queens arrived at the village in about the same time, but while Eliana&Yael finished the basket task quickly and headed of to Tsitsikamma Park Liran struggled leaving her and her partner behind and allowing the blonds to catch up.  Both teams finished the task in about the same time.

After being stuck in the mud for hours Hannah & Margalit got help from a local and finished the course only to miss the turn to Nomathamsanqa and drive in the wrong way for hours.

After the second flight arrived all teams beside Allen & Inbal made it to Kragga Kamma Park. Ran was upset to be behind friends Asher & Maor claiming that Maor drives like an old lady, the friends also had difficulty tied the log to their vehicle and lost it several times.

While all other teams already finished first rout marker Allen & Inbal where completely lost and started to argue and scream at each other, Allen refused to receive help from the locals claiming that they all alcoholics. Even after finding the park the exes couldn't stop arguing causing a lost of time.

Ran & Michal and Asher & Maor where the first from the second flight to arrive to the village. Asher cracked jokes about his Georgian decant claiming that if he really had cubicle shaped head as the stereotype says the basket task would have been match easier, after reaching for the priestess Asher swore to come back to the village and "heal it from landmines"(it sound as stupid in Hebrew).
All other teams beside Hannah and Margalit had finished with the village task and where heading to Tsitsikamma park.
Even though they got lost on the way and Maya's refusal to get out of the car and ask the locals for direction (apparently they are too scary), the couple arrived first to the park only to encounter the opening hours. Eliana & Yael, the Beauty queens and blonds arrived shortly after.

Hannah & Margalit eventually found the village, even though they knew they were last they took the time and sang and played with the locals and drove off to Tsitsikamma park arriving hours after all other teams.

In the end all teams arrived to the park for a night layover, Allen and Inbal that arrived in 9th place where still arguing with each other even after they checked in.

Current placement:
Amichay & Maya
Eliana & Yael
Elena & Liran
Hadas & Inbal
Michal & Ran
Gil & Tom
Guy & Shay
Maor & Asher
Allen & Inbal
Hannah & Margalit

To be continued…

I absolutely love that. It's brilliant that they've changed the theme tune slightly and it makes it sound better.  :jumpy:

The Mole contestants met below the statue of Virgin of the Immaculate Conception on San Cristobal hill in Santiago. I believe in TAR7 they rode funiculars to the base of the statue.

Raymond,

You stated that "Shanghai skyline (I forget what season? 7 ?)
6 & 7 as I know."

You are correct on season 6. AR7 never goes east of Alleppy, India where it turns and heads back westward. It is impossible for Shanghai to have been in season 7.

I would like to supplement the information that retard boi has provided on the first leg:

1. Kragga Kamma is both a Game Reserve and a Game Park. Without a knowledge of Hebrew, I can't tell which.
2. Tsitsikamma is definitely a National Park, not just a park.
3. It may be OK to call the ending of leg 1 a TBC, but technically that is not so. There is no ending to leg 1 yet sicne it ended with a complete bunching with a 730am to 5pm Hours of Operation, which is different from a TBC.

These are relatively minor points. Without Hebrew, I got only a fraction of what retard boi did and my hat is off to him for an excellent recap.

Wasn't the second part of the first leg supposed to be on Saturday or Sunday?

And where does one see this show?
