Fixed - thanks folks! Looks like teams are running wild in the palace. And why are Jaime/Cara running back towards the exit?



It is possible in the mad dash to beat someone else to the mat, that J/C left ALL their stuff in the "cab".  They may be one of the teams that make it to the mat without their passpost, but with the happy result that they can run back to the cab, get their stuff, and check-in properly.

Just speculatiing,
Susan

A memento can be almost anything: a picture, a dress (such as a wedding gown), ceramic figurine, dried flowers / petals (from a bouquet), a collectible, a trinket,  a "tacky" souvenir.  Anything!  Anything that you have been given or purchased that you keep to help you remember something happy.  Basically, if you keep it to look at, even justly occasionally, and it makes you smile a tiny bit when you see it, it is a memento.

Could mementos be actually mementos of the race?

Yes.  I wouldn't consider the clues and other paperwork that you have to keep to fulfill the amazing race requirements as mementos.  But it seems to me that you might bring along a "good luck charm" of some kind or a picture of a loved one or they may have done some "shopping" during the rest stops to help them remember their trip.

I'm not 100% sure if Cara and Jaime are in the spot I've labelled them - nobody takes photos of the gate! The lawn, the parked cars and the lamppost in the picture line up with what I have though.

Looks like they're turning right (west) instead of running straight back out the entrance/exit, which means they've spotted Phil? They run into the complex going straight, spot the mat (and the cameraman for this shot) next to the statue of King Mongkut, turn 180° and run around the lawn to where he is.

Tammy and Victor could have completely missed it as they ran in, ending up where they are.

Real close fight between Tammy/Victor and Jaime/Cara - running in from two different directions!

No clue on the mementos! :duno:

Maybe mementos is Kisha's shoes? Maybe they were important somehow?

I wouldn't be surprised! Seeing how Dandrew suffered a leg after exchanging almost all of their leg money in exchange of shoes last season,  :funny: but at least shoes in Bangkok and China are far cheaper than those in Europe or Kazakhstan!

I'm not going to go crazy over a program description. puddin is correct. CBS is not going to spoil an episode whether it's NEL or not. Take it with a grain of salt.

I agree with TARAsia Fan.  It's possible that the guide is correct, but I'm going to wait and see on it.  It might just be a non-elimination leg and Mark & Michael or LaKisha & Jen get in last place.

Maybe I've missed it, but have we addressed the issue that in the picture of Jaime/Cara running, neither one of them has a backpack?  I know someone mentioned that they may be running back to their cab to get them, but it is possible that they are one of the ones to go to the mat without theirs?  I know they are still in the race, but that could screw up their placement.
Also the searching for momentos, could this possibly have anything to do with the roadblock that goes up in smoke?  Maybe they have to search for specific items (momentos) to burn as an offering?
Just throwing somethings out there.

Well, they did have to burn paper cars in season 2.  That could be it.

Nickasingh used to have a photo of the gate with the flag that Neobie swiped (:funny:) but now the image link is down, as well as the link of the topic where it was originally posted (at http://www.pantip.com/cafe/chalermthai/topic/A7351777/A7351777.html).

Should've saved it, huh?  :groan:

Good Day!

I was thinking, if this leg do in a tragedy (one team loses their things including their passports), and the production originally planned for SBs in Legs 9 and 11, then one SB would be moved to leg 10, (like what happened to the all-stars) and the production cannot create another SB in Beijing, then is it possible that they apply the 30-minute penalty for becoming last? Just Asking.....

Thanks!

Hey Everyone!

Do you remember on past legs that one of the F5 teams have a memento? I do think of Christie/Jodi with Jodi having the bracelet of her daughter, but they're obviously out of the game. I can't think of anything they treasure. Would TAR editors just reveal in this leg the memento of a team? I'm now confused..  :groan:

Confusingly yours,
<uycocoa>

The fanny pack on your body is not a requirement at the mat, I don't think.

That's different, though.  The teams got to the Salzburg Pit Stop in cars they drove themselves.  So I think it was okay to leave their passports in there.

Teams are generally told--in person or by the instruction sheet that comes with the task card--about keeping their taxis, luggage, etc (an example: about 6:12 into this video, as the teams enter Poring Hot Springs, you can hear an off-camera voice say "bag drop right here!").
If only one teams errs, you could write it off as a simple mistake; if several teams stray, then they weren't careful about reading the instructions or perhaps route planning was a bit sloppy.

I'm starting to think that this leg might be another elimination, leaving us with 2 back to back NEL's again, or Leg 10 elim, Penultimate - NEL, Speedbump on the final leg???

Anybody think this could be a pouch?? That's Cara, and we know she was carrying the pouch in the taxi...
