Margie and Luke may have made a big error in choosing the cake task (If it was a choice), since 99% of their communication relies on vision.

Reading somebody's signing isn't the easiest thing in the world when you have a face full of cake, especially if some of it gets in your eyes.

And LOVED the eye roll Luke gives us all.

I agree. But Margie really wanted to do it.. because i think she believed it was fun.. but we all know having cakes all over is NOT fun. :funny:

I wonder how a team successfully completes the cake Detour.  One cake each to the face?  Some video shows one teammate running toward the other to hit them in the face with the cake.  If you had to throw it from the red marks on the floor, that would be more challenging.

I think you have to find a clue in the cakes....

And I found the location of the Pie Toss Tent:  SchŲnau am KŲnigssee




Chateau, I think you have the tent in the paved parking lot where you put your red circle. The floor of the tent and the area where Victor is standing is grass. I think you are so close, maybe move your circle a few meters to the north to one of the grass areas. Personally, I think it is the one to the left of the pathway or road, but up to you. You are so good at placing things.

No, teams have not been allowed to hitch rides for some time, I believe... I think they are limited to "approved" vehicles only nowdays...

But I suppose the rules in each country could be different?

Search SchŲnau am KŲnigssee on Google, I found a site for tourist info.

http://www.koenigssee.com/schoenau/english/e_schoen.htm

Given the preview for next week, on of the tabs on the page is 10 hiking rules ... Linda at least took a camera team with her.

The site also mentions that bobsled rides are available on the track.  One experienced driver can take up to 3 riders.  That would have been a fun task for our teams.

I thought originally they were praying for safety, but now I think they are praying for the right wind direction.



The only team member we see flying in promos/previews is Mel. It makes sense he stays up there and flies. With his groin injury, he canít walk down and fits with what he yells as he takes off, ď I donít care if I am eliminatedÖÖĒ

People seen on top of mountain.
Victoria, Christie, Jodi, Mark, Michael, Jen, Linda, Cara, Mel, Tammy*

Seen in Cable car going down
Brad, Amanda

Sitting in waiting area
Steve

Unknown location
Mike, Victor

People seen flying
Mel

Possible roadblock hikers
Linda,Tammy*, Victoria

Not seen at all
Kris, Kisha, Jen, Jamie, Margie, Luke

Apparent Roadblockers,
Mel, Cara, Linda, Victoria, Christie, Mark, Kris, Tammy*

Apparent non-Roadblockers
Mike, Jamie, Steve, Brad, Jodi, Michael, Amanda, Victor*

Undeterminable

The links are tenuous and the assumptions huge, but it's an educated guess!
*Assumes placings remain constant throughout Bavaria*

Based on Salzburg spoiler, Amanda/Kris should be in Top 3.
Tammy/Victor beat Amanda/Kris, Luke/Margie and Brad/Victoria to the pies.
Tammy/Victor likely to be Top 2.

Based on Salzburg spoiler again, Brad/Victoria are likely 4th and Cara/Jamie 5th.
Amanda and Brad are together on the gondola.
Amanda/Kris therefore likely to be 3rd.

Amanda/Kris, Brad/Victoria, Jodi/Christie, Michael/Mark are together at Roadblock, when
Linda and Mel talk of "more teams are on their way".
The only unaccounted teams are Luke/Margie and LaKisha/Jennifer.
Could we place them at the Bottom 4 together with Linda/Steve and Mike/Mel?
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

In the video, Victor tells Tammy good luck and she runs so I think she is the roadblocker/hiker

Okay Puddin, I will edit the list. I just looked at the vidcaps, not the videos. I guess I should  do that, huh? I thought that was Jen running away from the camera. Now, there is no info on either Luke/Margie or Kisha/Jen

One thing I am wondering about. That Salzburg blogger talking about the crew comment. "One racer climbed back up the mountain, because she didnt trust the arrows." I wonder if when Linda got back to the top, the wind had changed and she flew afterall? Guess we will have to wait for the show to find out.

Yeah, I think so.  He's injured with a pulled groin muscle.

when Linda and Mel talk of "more teams are on their way".


I can't figure this one out. "On their way" where? Is he talking about "more teams on their way," that still haven't arrived in Ruhpolding from the airport in Munich or is he talking about "more teams on they way" back down the mountain, both non-roadblockers and roadblocker/hikers?

I think we need some more data to make it clear.

I take it as teams that are behind them as in on their way to the RB area, not there yet, down the mountain, on their way up.

I agree Puddin, that is the obvious intrepretation. But TPTB have never given us the obvious, it seems.   lol

An injured racer must make a game altering decision when Mother Nature refuses to cooperate. Lost in the Alps! One team's hopes are pinned on a rescue on a secluded mountain road. Teams get creamed with Austrian schlog and one team turns to a horse to decipher their clue.
