It Was Like a Caravan of Idiots (Siberia)
The teams travel from Romania to Siberia on the fourth leg of the race. Once there, they must choose to either stack a large pile of wood or apply shutters to a house. The pairs also learn about a new twist to the race that leaves one duo scrambling to stay in the competition.

*DURING THE RACE'S FIRST-EVER VISIT TO SIBERIA, TEAMS MUST TRUDGE THROUGH A HARSH RUSSIAN WINTER IN SEARCH OF A FAMOUS PLAYWRIGHT,
AND A NEW TWIST LEAVES ONE TEAM FIGHTING FOR THEIR SURVIVAL IN THE GAME
*Teams travel to Siberia, the show's first- ever visit,
**where a first place team quickly learns how it feels to be last,
***and when a new twist is revealed, one Team is left scrambling for their survival in the game
*One team hits another with a Blind U-turn sending shockwaves throughout the Race and teams must make it through a Russian winter.

This is a leg that had no sightings, right?

Well, we know that LaKisha and Jen made it to Siberia so either they go out in this leg or (more likely in my opinion) in the next one.

I think that since there are 12 legs this season Leg 5 is likely to be a non-elim. Think back to TAR 10 and 11. So they could make it to Leg 6!

Oh, no, I don't think so.  There are two Siberia legs, and I think they're supposed to go out on one of these two.  I could be wrong and they make it even past here, but I'm doubtful about that, considering Preston all but said Kisha was laughing about him needing an extra bungee cord for weeks in sequester.  I think they're going out in Siberia, for sure -- on the second of the two legs there.

I agree, Kiwi, Kisha's laugh annoyed me to death! But I just want to see thes teams that aren't getting good story edits to make it as far as possible - I really want to get to know them better.

It would be nice if one of the Siberia legs was a non-elim. I hope that if it's not leg 5, then it's leg 4 instead of waiting until as late as possible.

Google Earth was fuzzy in Romania.  What is it going to be like in Siberia?

 :tup: no worries, gator.  A quick check in GE shows the two identified Russian cities of Novosibirsk and Krasnoyarsk are "in the clear".  Should be easy to following them there.   :snicker:

Plus, there's a lot of snow. As long as people don't wear white, they won't blend in. :lol:

That looks like a ride the little train at a fast speed and spot the clue task. I forget which season where teams had to ride rollercoasters and spot the clue.

Agreed, the track looks like a rodelbahn track. The Mole had a similar spot-the-sign rodelbahn task in Santiago.

I wonder if you have to remember  the order of the shapes and signs and then reassemble them?

In some of those pictures it looks like its some type of ski slope.

That combined with the TARA Fukuoka ice cube task?

I see: 'С' 'О' 'Е' 'Н' 'К' 'Н' '?'. Anyone wants to give it a try? ;D

Cyrillic "ch" is "Щ" or "Ч" though...
