Next On The Amazing Race


Gorilla? Gorilla?? Gorilla??? (Thailand)

Teams take a walk on the wild side…or rather, the wild side walks on them.

One team finds itself at the mercy of a slow moving Thai shopkeeper:yess:

A first place team finds itself in the penalty box—and their victory in jeopardy hmmm

and in the extreme temperature of Thailand, one racer collapses from exhaustion.


Clue #1 probably refers to an elephant Detour or Roadblock (I think Detour).

Clue #2 -- no idea.

Clue #3 -- maybe Tammy & Victor.  But they're safe.

Clue #4 -- Margie, obviously.  It may be heat exhaustion, however, so she may be able to continue in the Race -- for now.

I can see this episode's title being uttered by Jaime in another one of her . . . chipper moments.

Or maybe by Mark & Michael.

I think the rickshaw is a general task because it ends at the PitStop mat.

I do not think TAR has ever had a Detour or Roadblock end directly at the mat.

There have been some that are close. The Zorb roadblock in New Zealand (TAR5) comes to mind. Do we have evidence that they bring the rickshaw all the way to the pitstop though?

maybe it was just like the underwear run "pull your teammate all the way to the pit stop), like in TAR3 in the leg the twins were eliminated

We have Phil grabbing Margie as she faints, and calling in the medics...

Phil=PitStop.

That was also a Roadblock, though.

As I mentioned on the last page, it might just be to the entrance and then a qick run to the mat, which would include a sudden upright stop for Margie, bring on heat exhaustion.

What was the other? It's very well known. Think World Aids Day (that's not the reason, but it was the same day when Phil left the mat).

And one of the members of the crew putting the reflector over Margie to shade her from the hot sun.

I wonder how Margie's dehydration will affect their Team's status in the Race?

If they are last, it won't matter too much.  But will she be fit enough to leave in 12 hours?

Maybe the Pit Stop is extended because of the heat exhaustion.

Next On The Amazing Race


Gorilla? Gorilla?? Gorilla??? (Thailand)

A first place team finds itself in the penalty box—and their victory in jeopardy hmmm

adding more clues:

TEAMS TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE WHEN THEY RECEIVE A FOOT MASSAGE FROM A LOCAL ELEPHANT, AND THE EXTREME HEAT OF THAILAND CAUSES ONE RACER TO COLLAPSE, ON "THE AMAZING RACE," MARCH 29
"Gorilla? Gorilla?? Gorilla???" (Thailand) - One team finds that time is not of the essence when a shopkeeper hinders their movement, and others discover that a hurried pace doesn't always equal victory, particularly when mistakes can add up to penalties, on THE AMAZING RACE 14, Sunday, March 29 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Phil Keoghan is host.


  • Based on these two clues, I'm going to guess that Tammy & Victor probably rush to the pitstop, arriving first, but are going to be penalized.  Because of the words "their victory in jeopardy," I assume that whatever team it is will be safe otherwise they would've said "on the brink of elimination" or something like that.
  • I'm going to take a wild guess that Tammy & Victor and Mel & Mike manage to get to Phuket with a lead over the other teams, which is why the clue only mentions "their victory in jeopardy."
  • The tiger and the elephant tasks individually seem too easy to be a detour.  They both look like those grab-a-number and wait in line type of tasks, which usually seem to apply to roadblocks.

  • The rickshaw task makes sense to me as a roadblock.  The spoiler post said that Margie & Luke took "four wrong turns."  If team members were to take turns pulling each other, I don't know if it would be easy to dictate where and when team members could switch. 

On an unrelated note, I've noticed some coincidences placement-wise with Tammy & Victor/Mel & Mike/Margie & Luke.

On legs 1-3:
  • T&V were 2nd --> 1st --> made a mistake (8th)
  • M&M were 4th --> 2nd --> 1st
  • M&L were 1st --> 4th --> 4th

On legs 5 & 6:
  • T&V were 2nd --> 1st
  • M&M were 4th --> 2nd
  • M&L were 1st --> 4th

T&V are not going to end up 8th, but it'll be interesting to see if the trend holds, where T&V make a mistake, M&M end up 1st, and M&L end up 4th.

Interesting trends.  I tend to notice those too.  I just usually keep them to myself.   :lol:
Margie doesn't look that bad when they first arrive at the pitstop, so maybe there was a long mat chat.

actually, if you look, there seems to be a possible 4 leg trend for each team

for legs 1-4
Margie/Luke 1st ---> 4th ---> 4th ---> 4th
Mel/Mike 4th ---> 2nd ---> 1st ---> 6th
Tammy/Victor ---> 2nd ---> 1st ---> 8th  ---> 3rd

for 5 and 6
Margie/Luke 1st ---> 4th ---> possibly 4th in Phuket and Bangkok?
Mel/Mike 4th ---> 2nd ---> 1st in Phuket? eliminated in Bangkok?
Tammy/Victor 2nd ---> 1st ---> second to last or even last on possible NEL in Phuket? bounce back and finish 3rd in Bangkok?

if this trend keeps up throughout the race, then Mel/Mike will be knocked out in Bangkok
Margie/Luke make it to Beijing
and Tammy/Victor make it to the finals but finish in 3rd

However, I highly doubt that this trend is really going to hold true all the way to the end

As much as possible, I don't want to believe in trends, because with six legs already, we see a periodic trend with this three teams... including everything from roadblocks (Mel smoking the roadblock is VERY SIMILAR to him paragliding and others walking down a hill, Tammy/Victor completely OWNING the leg, ahead by 1 clue among the others, Margie/Luke being head to head for a "footrace" somehow to first. I'd be more happy if they'd be the final three right now, judging by their actions
