After watching the White's stack fall, I'd be surprised if they didn't switch.
Fwiw, Siberian shutters are often ornate.

What if the Blind U-turn means ALL the teams must do the other task?

There isn't a 'Courtesy of' spot on the sticker either; I think it means that if a team uses it, they have to U-Turn the next team that reaches it.

That could be it, the teams behind the team that U-Turns all have to do the other Detour option "can the teams come together in time for a game changing twist.."

I do not think one team gets to U-Turn another.  I like the idea of multiple teams being U-Turned.  Maybe all the Teams are U-Turned and it is a slight advantage to stack wood after the shutter task ... or vice versa.

I think when the first team hits the U-Turn, that team must turn around and do both Detours and then passes the U-Turn down. That's one way it could be a "Blind U-Turn".

which would also explain the clue about a 1st place team knowing what it's like to be in last?

Neobie,

I have been in the Sheremetveyo Airport (16 years ago and I do not remember it much) and in Bucharest airport 7 months ago (which I do remember well), but never in Vnukovo airport. I think that the pictures fit Bucharest better.

I got confusing results by putting in one Moscow airport at a time, but when I entered "All of them" I got a different picture. There are 3 flights on thursdays from Sheremetyevo to Krasnojarsk. There are 2 flights from Domodedovo. There is even one from Vnukovo. Several of these are just after midnight, which would not be feasible for any team on Nov. 6 since teams have to get to Moscow first and I expect the earliest release to be around midnight if there is no Extended Pit Stop. On Friday Nov. 7 there were 2 flights from SVO, 2 from DME and 1 from VKO.

On Nov. 6 there is only one nonstop from OTP to Sheremeteveyo, but several to both SVO and DME and none to VKO. On Friday Nov. 7 I see no nonstops but an ample number of flight combinations to either SVO or DME, but not VKO.

So, the bottom line is that a cross-Moscow taxi ride is not impossible but it is unlikely. The more likely outcome is that the taxi ride is in Krasnojarsk or even Bucharest.

Puddin - sounds like someone asking "who got U-turned?" to me... ?

Since everybody is doing it I will make my guess for Blind U-Turning:

The Team that implements the U-turn designates who is U-Turned.

They do not post their own picture.  That is why it is 'blind'.

Maybe the "Blind U-turn" means every one has to do the other detour option, or maybe just some of the next clue envelopes contain the "Blind U-turn." It might just depend on which envelope they pull out of the clue box. Sort of like a lottery. You don't know you get it, till you open the clue.

Sounds like Mel asking WHO got U-Turned to me too....

 :umn: Maybe they don't know "who" got U-Turned until the one detour option is complete? That sure would put some pressure on! So if Mike/Mel Mark/Michael Kris/Amanda switched detours, I guess? then they have to go back and complete the one that they skipped? I dunno  :funny: :pull but thanks TPTB for giving us something to talk about!

If this helps sort out the U-Turning:  In this shot Mike & Mel are headed back to the wooden church where they all get the initial Detour information.

okay so my commercials don't close caption? or I haven't figured out my settings  (:;)

It looks like Mike points behind him and says to the brothers "look who got U-Turned"

Is that them to the left?
