It was already confirmed by puddin that Kisha & Jen aren't gonna be toast, and it won't be an NEL.

It's due to that new info I'm fearing for my cheerleaders and am hoping like hell the stuntmen, as much as I like them, finally have their bumbling catch up with them.

Relax.  Cara & Jamie were spotted in China heading to Hawaii, so we can safely say they're in the Race.

And why the signing with your name?  You could put it in your siggie.

That's not how I thought you'd react to my news!  I wanted you to relax, instead you're still scared.

P.S.  I rarely use siggies and never have done so on this site.  Or maybe using my name is my siggie.

Can somebody find pictures of these two things together, in the same shot?   My protractor needs to know!   :lol:

Is that possible? The kmz Jamie provided (attached) makes it look like the Wat itself (surrounded by spikes? little stupas?) is at the front (perpendicular), the pagoda is in the middle, and the Chedi/mat is all the way at the back.

Look at their Pit Stop pic again (especially Cara's face) and you'll understand why. :'(

These shots were taken in this order between 11:48 am and 12:19 pm (assumes November 15th).
The first two are essentially at the same time.  See why!

Well that certainly answers a lot of questions! Cara & Jamie get the penalties and Tammy comforts Cara and then there is the last team to arrive ........... :knock:

Fabulous, Chateau!

Would Cara/Jamie (or Tammy/Victor, for that matter) have finished their penalty before Margie faints? I'd think if they were in view of the mat they would run over to help! That's a really narrow gap though!

Mm. Luke/Margie fourth again? *suspicious*

No, not Mel/Mike in danger! :( (Puddin you didn't leave us many options...)

Once again, great job, Chateau! Was wondering if it could possibly be on either side of noon, or have you taken that into account already? (If the stupa was in a different place the standings could possibly be flipped completely?)
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Wow chateau! You really are so good in analyzing those shadows!  :hearts: :jumpy:

It looks to me that everything we have speculated has been more or less answered or justified already! I'm kinda sad though, if ever Jaime/Cara did receive the penalty, it's when they came first...  :'(

Mel/Mike? Hope not!  :'( :'( :'( Waaah! This episode would be sad!

Holy crap, they would!

. . . Okay, panic alleviated for now, but I've still got reservations.

You all really think Tammy & Victor's faces reflect those of someone who also just got penalized?  I think that's just surprise to have won another leg because Jaime & Cara got penalized.

I won't worry too much about Mel & Mike, either.  If Jaime & Cara and Tammy & Victor both did get penalized and both survive, then I think Mel & Mike are saved by Mark & Michael getting penalized.

In TARA1, Andy & Laura got a speed penalty on one leg, but the penalty occurred on the next leg. Could that put into account, or is it not used in TAR? I can't remember. lol

Nooo not Mel & Mike. :( If they were last.

Questions, questions. I've sure got them this morning.

Let me start with a question for puddin: Where did these strips come from(the answer obviously has to be CBS)?
and one for all of us: Why is CBS releasing such information in this episode when to the best iof my knowledge in the 2.4 years I have been active on RFF there has never been photos of each team's finish available as a preview?

Next for Chateau: If you did the time estimates for Jaime/Cara, why not for all the others too (or is that coming?)?
I am specifically interested in Kisha/Jen because they look very unhappy at the pit stop but the rest will provide insights too. Also, why in the side-by-side of Jaime/Cara and Tammy/Victor do you conclude that they were simultaneous, as the aangle of the shadow across her chest is much sharper for Tammy than for Jaime and Cara. I recognize that the tilt to Tammy's head could account for part of it, but does it account for all of it?

CBS probably wants people to talk about the race more, and guess who gets the boot or the penalty. Its a first for the race for a team to get two penalties in a leg right?

My own interpretation of the penalty is that Tammy & Victor are penalised with the two penalties. Jaime & Cara arrive at the mat in second place, just as Tammy & Victor's penalty ends. Phil says, "Jaime & Cara, you have not arrived within Tammy & Victor's penalty time. Tammy & Victor, you are team number one." Tammy & Victor look relieved, just like in that shot. Meanwhile, Jaime & Cara look upset that they narrowly missed their first first place finish of the race.

Here is my interpretation.  The times that Chateau gave us is for all of the teams arrival, first through last vs the arrival time for just Jamie/Cara.

Maybe Chateau used shadow that are elsewhere in each vidcap.  Maybe the shadow on the Gold thing in the back ground.

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.


Based on the wording ... victory in jeopardy ... it makes me think the first place team will not be eliminated.  And it will be close whether or not they actaully win the leg.

Our PitStop pictures assume that this is the first time a team arrives at the mat.  However, maybe we are actually seeing the first place team at the mat after serving their penalty, their second time stepping on the mat.

Jamie/Cara, you are the first team to arrive, but have 2 penalties.

Tammy & Victor, you are the second team to arrive. ..... However, because of Jamie/Cara's penalties, you are the winners of this leg of the race.

This just speculation on my part.

All I can say is AWESOME analysis Chateau! I thought for sure it was Luke's shirt not Tammy's shoulder, but it can't be of course. No wrinkles!

Awesome!  :tup:

Cara/Jaime won't be eliminated because they have eyewitness reports spotted in China airport heading to Hawaii .

Also, if we take this literally: A first place team finds itself in the penalty box—and their victory in jeopardy
then it would have to be either Tammy/Victor, Margie/Luke or Mel/Mike... the only 3 teams (left) that have had 1st place finishes.


ummmm..i think FIRST PLACE TEAM means they arrived at the pit stop in Phuket first, it doesnt mean that a team that got first place before. well, i think it doesnt...
