Ok, so I found this album with Phuket pics of a family.

Album by a Family

Elephants walking over you while you are laying down = part of the elephant show.
Supporting image

From the Phuket Zoo website:
Quote
Our staff will take a Polaroid snap of you posing with our Tigers. You can choose a young tiger or a fully-grown male to sit with depending on your courage!
The family poses with the tiger here

Anyways, what I'm trying to say is these make it seem like the Elephant Walk-Over and Tiger Photo-Op are the two detour options.


One last thing: the chimpanzee is not part of the Monkey show, because according from the Phuket Zoo site again:
Quote
We use short-tailed macaque monkeys for this show. They are still a kind of common wild animal in Thailand.

So going back to the family album above, they have a picture with a chimpanzee here, but that's a male one (you can see it's scrotum, and the penis can be seen in the next photo). However, the one in the recent preview is a female.

So I'm just gonna guess that teams have to find the cage ( :( ) of the female chimp because that's where the clue box for the detour is, or she might be the one giving the clue...  (:;) (sorry, I think that second possible scenario is exploitation).
just dance

I don't understand the question, and I won't respond to it.

Nice links, hakushu! Even if I do hate and despise zoos in general, and exploited animals in particular. :knuckles:

I will say that I have reason to think that we will still have another task we haven't seen yet. They are in Phuket, land of beautiful beaches, right? No way we aren't going to see some beaches/water.

So you can take it FWIW, but I think we will be seeing some Thai fishing boats soon...

T/V are heading south on Chao Fah, crossing Wichit Songkhram (compare the view here).

Mel and Mike: Casuarina palms and coconut trees... Indian food for the tourists... I'll hazard a guess that this is very close to the beach.

Edited to add: It's bloody PATONG.

Well it makes sense to go from the airport on Phuket to Patong then to Phuket city.....so first task is probably in Patong.

Shadows are pointing Northwest, for what it's worth. It's not too far into the leg.

Maybe someone can do the sun angle magic? ;D Not sure how to link to MapJack, but the coordinates are 753'53''N 9817'48''E.

So now the picture they have to find is I'm guessing the orangutan at Phuket Zoo. Obviously I think the orangutan will be in a pose same as the picture, it can follow orders, right?

I do think the elephant massage and tiger picture are detours...

Kisha & Jen are nowhere in those pictures/vids, really weird...What does it mean?

So...my guess on the routes:

Fly to Phuket, Thailand. Then...Make your way to Patong Beach and search for your next clue. Maybe they have to do a task there, but I don't know. Wasn't there something about a teashop?

And then that's where they get the picture of the monkey? Possibly in a pose? If it's a photo of that specific orangutan then it might be well known to people in that area? They go to Phuket Zoo where they receive, a Detour more likely to me. And after that they have to go somewhere else (Rama IX park I think) and they'll find the Roadblock (I think it's a RB now since I've never seen Luke/Tammy running with it) all the way to Wat Thepnimit (spelling? lol). But it is quite long, so maybe the RB finished somewhere else and then make their way on foot to pitstop.

I talk too much...

The photo of the monkey is from the plane spoiler, so the Phuket Zoo's our first location.

With Mel/Mike at Patong Beach in the morning, I'm guessing we head to the west coast next.

Then it's into the town centre for the herbal shop, then the rickshaws onto Suan Luang (sightings in the afternoon).

Finish that up with a ride to Wat Thepminit, and rest (or faint) for the evening...



Now have we seen the lead two teams anywhere with the three trailing teams? And where do Margie and Luke fit into this?

Could one of them be a fast forward?  Isn't it about time we have one?

If there's a FF, then it's not M&L, Mark&Michael and T&V I think...

Possibly Mel & Mike or Kisha & Jen?

To generate a link, click the blue button top-left. This view is looking towards Mel. At first I thought, since they were looking in opposite directions, that they were searching for a cab; but cabs are probably plentiful by the beach, so maybe it's something else.

I def agree, with monkey pic in hand the zoo is the first stop. Any chance the teams are shopping? Herbal shop then gym but the gym makes no sense so I'm rambling.

I am trying to remember season 4, which I think is the last time I recall teams having to take pictures of animals, was it a general task (sort of like taking pictures of the towers in season 3) or a roadblock/detour.  I would check but not at my computer.  If general task then the posing might be a general task.

It was a general task.  They also had the go inside a croc pin and get your clue as a general task in season 9.  So it is possible that these very passive tasks are general tasks and not a roadblock/detour option.

They seem awful easy for a detour task, awful easy.  Unless its just part of a series of tasks.
