You know what I mean. She's far from ugly. Just doin' her stressed out, yelling routine.

In regards to the video, 2 penalties? Two time penalties? Could be as much as an 30 minutes to an hour depending on the penalty.

I would think that two penalties would be at least an hour, if it's really thirty minutes plus the time gained, but we don't know what type of penalty it is.

Maybe Patong is a FF? So far, is there any evidence of any other teams in Patong then Mike/Mel?

On mention of two penalties when is the last time they have used the 30 minutes Plus time gained.   Last time I recall that being a factor was in season 9 (and it was 30 minutes minus time lost for taking the wrong train or whatever).

What was Mark & Bill's penalty?

Judging by the pictures and based on my opinion...

2 PENALTIES!?!?! Is this a first in the race? And why of all places, it is in Thailand that teams get massive and heavy penalties? (With the first being Momily - 24 hours?!!? sheesh...)

Cara/Jaime looks to be coming last or has the penalty...

Tammy/Victor looks TOO relieved or surprised with their placement, and with their looks, look that they do not take the penalty.

Margie/Luke is indeed safe.

Mark/Michael looks happy to receive 2 penalties...

I think its a toss up between Kisha/Jen or Mel/Mike...

Furthermore, Victor screaming "OH MY GOD" while their pictures are posted would look too obvious for a commercial.

But who knows?

Its not a NEL and for all we know Jamie & Cara are crying because maybe they saw Margie faint? So much we can read into those pitstop pictures but who knows?

Oh you might be right, C/J may be indeed crying because Margie faints, but a picture paints a thousand words, so it would probably hard for us to figure who gets the penalty or what actually happens... It would be very appealing if Jaime cries because she has seen how she was mean to almost every local they met starting from Romania...

Probably, at least she ain't bitching like Flo or Kendra too much that makes me both irritated and laughed the hell of me (it sucks to feel that way!)

Correcting my last statement, I don't 100% conclude that phuket is NEL, but what about wishing for it to be NEL... I don't wanna have any team leave the race before we have our one week hiatus from television...  :'( :'( :'( I guess we'll all cry in front of our television sets when this airs next week...

On the happy spot...
This episode only by preview looks so Emmy worthy!  :hearts: :hearts:

Could there be more than one team who gets penalized?? The editing team makes this preview so much spectacular that almost all teams might take the penalties... And with the promos "others hurried pace add up to penalties..." it kinda misleads...

Can anyone check what time was on Luke & Cara's watches when Phil said you have 2 penalties?

Why is Kisha & Jen so invisible in these promos for next week's ep? That's the first faces of them I've seen since the last episode.

Also CBS/promo editors are smart to not show many racers at the same place, it makes it hard.

Phil: you have incurred 2 penalties




Are we sure that's Jaimie's hand on Cara's shoulder? Is that someone else in the frame with them to the left of Cara?

And the 2 penalties are for sure just for one team, not one for this team and another penalty for another team. In the preview Phil directly tells a team that they are receiving 2.

good spotting... Just now, I could see a small gray area after Cara, might be Luke/Margie and Jaime/Cara checking in at the same time...

I was thinking the same thing as well. It might be Margie, but something tells me it also looks like Tammy's arm...

That hand appears to be connected with the person in a brown tee shirt to me. If you check (and I have) no team and no Phil shot above presumably on the mat has a brown tee shirt on. Could it be the Greeter?

Hi apskip! The greeter was partly shown at the first teaser after the race, a small woman beside phil, wearing a traditional blue thai costume :) Check back the pages in front, you'll see her  :jumpy:

I am beginning to wonder if we have completely missed the detours. A possible scenario:
1) Fly to Phuket and find monkey at zoo. Then a take a number general task. Get tiger pic and elephant massage.
2) Go to Patong Beach for detours.
3) When finished with detours, go to herb shop for next clue
4) Clue is roadblock which pulling the rickshaw around Phuket city in a specific route.
5) After arriving at park with rickshaw, get clue to go to Pit Stop.

I have been looking at the shadows in all the shots. It appears to me that T/V arrive at the Pit Stop much much earlier than anyone else. There is no shadow on the stupa. In the pics of Mel/Mike, Kisha/Jen, Luke/Margie and Mark/Michael the shadow is almost the same. So a pretty close finish. I can't really tell in the photo of Jamie/Cara, but there seems to be a faint shadow that matches the other 4 teams. From the blogger, we know that Mel/Mike and T/V arrived on a flight by themselves. So I wonder how come the mat times for these two teams are so far apart. In the photo of Victor pulling the rickshaw in Phuket city, the shadows appear around noon to me also.

If they drop the teams off at the street at the Pit Stop, it looks like a pretty good sprint/jog to the mat and that could be what did Margie in, after pulling that rickshaw around. Isn't about a mile to mile and half from King Rama park to Pit Stop?

The gym at the park could be the location of the clue box to proceed to the Pit Stop. It doesnt even have to be open for that.

Please do not mention racist Kendra by name. From now on, please refer to her as "Chiang kai-shek", the Butcher of Taiwan. :lol:

I see that color matching Luke's t-shirt from his shoulder.
