Amazing Race 14 Episode: "Rooting Around in People's Mouths Could Be Unpleasant (Thailand)"
Episode Synopsis: The teams continue to compete in Thailand on the eighth leg of the race, with a pit stop in Bangkok. Phil Keoghan is the host. Original Air Date: Apr 12, 2009

Bangkok, Thailand ( Nov 16 -)

Might have a reason why Pit Stop arrivals are so late in Guilin...

Post 223 by Nickasingh, from Sucks (thanks hakushu8 for bringing it over!)

Had the incredible luck to connect in Bangkok for a couple of hours, and was able to gather that an "adventure company" was holding an event here at the Phayathai Palace on the 16th of November, and that the point of contact worked for... World Race Productions! (This is our race, guys!)

Other places which may or may not be locations (I can't tell for sure if I completely understood the lady I talked to, but it's worth a look) are...

this place... and

this place!

It isn't exactly that building though; I was told something about the Vimanmek Teak Palace, in the same compound, but no photography is allowed inside?!

So I'm not exactly sure if TAR could have got their cameras in too! (A security guard seemed to remember filming in the compound though, the information desk - when I asked them - called up someone, then started pretending to not know anything...)

It's a huge rush getting from Phuket on the 15th, Bangkok on the 16th, to Guilin on the 17th - but it's possible, and the whole point of the race, isn't it? More info in the timetables thread!

Kinda weird that a month AFTER filming, the flag is still there.
If I were Nickasingh I probably would have swiped it :lol:

And... glad to report that I am now the proud (and very illegal) owner of official Amazing Race paraphernalia!

"Rooting Around In People's Mouths Could Be Unpleasant" (Thailand)

*TEAMS MUST KARAOKE THEIR WAY THROUGH A THAI POP-THEMED DETOUR
....... Teams let loose in a Karaoke-themed Detour

**One racer's Roadblock goes up in smoke
*SEVERAL RACERS FOOLISHLY LEAVE THEIR BACKPACKS BEHIND AT A ROADBLOCK COSTING THEM CRITICAL TIME
Several Racers leave their backpacks behind at a Roadblock and find themselves shoeless with no passports,
Lesson not learned from Toni and Dallas last season - one team goes to the mat without their passports.
A racer wanders through Bangkok-barefoot
.... one racer goes hours out of the way to retrieve "mementos".

*is still jealous that Neobie got the flag*  (:;)

Just kidding. :funny:

Or am I?

Not that I can get it anyways.



Anyways, that title confuses me. Rooting? That's either uprooting a tree, which doesn't make sense for this case. You can also root, or cheer, for a person, but why do it so in-your-face on another person? Lastly, and probably what makes the most sense, is something dentistry-related. Teeth has root canals. Do teams have to do a dentistry task, or is a dental office a route marker?

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

Michael: thats (ridiculous?)
Mark: thats the problem, you don't want the million dollars (something something just want to play?)

OMGah... ladyboys! <333

I think this is the first time that TAR acknowledged them in Thailand... and they get to be a part of the task too!  :jam:

ETA: If this is a detour, Margie/Luke WOULDN'T be doing this one at all... unless singing is a REAL requirement. Although if Luke can "Daaah." and "Bob." his way throughout the task, then they might do it.  :funny:

Guess Luke & Margie will not have too much choice on the Detour.

I hope Margie is well enough to continue the Race.

That is tremendous! Not a TAR creation this time. And this one, probably didn't cost all that much to get the taxi company to provide its cars.

Hint of a FAST FORWARD?  Like getting your head shaved?  And it is probably the last chance for a FF and perhaps an NEL also.

I don't think there's a FF next leg, because there is an unaired FF in Phuket. But I'm quite sure that it will be a NEL. Then another NEL in China... probably in Beijing...

In this context, I think they mean to search or rummage through a place (see the second definition here). I'm not sure I'd want a dentist to root through my mouth (my new dentist uses digital x-rays; a couple of seconds after the exposure I can see the results on the monitor  :help:  ;D).

Does this look pretty enough to be our Pit Stop?
