Sounds very much like Mark & Michael.  Though they're actually Latino, not Caucasian.

Now, is this the F5 or the F4?  Are they ahead, or way, way behind?

I assume that it is final 5 because leg 8 is most likely a NEL.
Guangzhou is closer to Guilin then Beijing.
And Mark and Michael do look caucasian in my mind, even if they aren't.

Last time I looked, Spanish/Latin heritage is Caucasian.

Heres the Guangzhou China airport sighting on November 17th at 11pm :)




I of course know this one, but what about that visitor center?? Did she identify the guys or are we just assuming it based on the times?? ???

Alright, I think I need to clarify a little bit. :lol:

The girl was working at the visitor's centre when she saw a film crew run by, but she can't remember the team nor the time of day. We know, however, that the centre closes at 10pm, and that the earliest Guangzhou flight (there are four) arrives at 9.30pm. That team she saw wasn't Mark/Michael.

This also means that a team made it to Guilin before all four Guangzhou flights, the last one being a Hong Kong connection arriving at 8.50pm. With Mark/Michael's sighting suggesting they took the last flight (2305-2355) from Guangzhou to Guilin, they are at least three hours behind.

Sorry, Mark and Michael.

Oh thanks Neobie!! Now I see...

We knew M&M were way behind based on the flights, but really not looking good for the guys, I guess...

Of course, that's gotta mean a nighttime bunch-up point, right?  Unless the teams were definitely spotted doing tasks way late at night, there's still hope for them.

Not that I want there to be.  I don't hate them, but I'm probably the only one here who'd really prefer they be the fifth-place-finishers, assuming Bangkok brings us an NEL.

I'm right there with you Ashe
They're pretty much the only team that I wouldn't be too upset if they got eliminated next.

I don't think there is a late night bunching point if the Peak of the Luminous Moon is our pitstop

it stayed open until 3am which is enough time for M/M to arrive from guangzhou (i believe they were sighted in guangzhou around 11pm) and complete the tasks and check in  (hopefully in last...)

Neobie, if Mark and Michael really gets eliminated this leg, you seriously just made my day and week and probably months. (At least they are the only team remaining that i DO NOT want to see winning) :knuckles:

I think we're getting ahead of ourselves here! Our calculations only suggest that Mark and Michael were at least three hours behind a team, not three hours behind everyone else.

That said, if TPTB designed the leg to be run at a saner hour than 12-3am that the brothers probably did, it's likely more teams made it into Guilin before them.

We'd know more when we see the time gaps on arrival in Phayathai Palace...

Why o why must TPTB produce a leg in Guilin in the late evening? We could not see the landscapes then... totally opposite with HK/Macau where the night is young, and they produce day legs there.

Neobie,
Why do you think the 3 hour gap is in Bangkok? I don't agree. It's in arrival to Guilin the following leg and determined by flight
. The gap in Bangkok could be anything, including 1 minute behind the much faster Kisha and Jennifer.

EDITOR'S NOTE - Neobie was right, explained by the 4 hour penalty at the Bangkok pit stop less adjustment for relative flight times from Bangkok to Guilin of one hour.

Sorry guys! Forget what I said about the Folded Brocade Mountains. (I'm utterly confused.)

This (platform in the foreground) is the Pit Stop.

What I'm more excited of is what would happen to the teams in this episode!

Mark and Michael in the wrong city at 11pm? With teams 1, 3 and 4 checking in in daylight?

Odds? Anyone? *yawn* *foregone conclusion*



I can't find the riverside park searching in Chinese. Someone might have to do the dirty work and plod around town on Street View...

What the heck is going on at the Folded Brocade Mtns until 3am then? We know production was there (from sightings and from production blog), and the site was locked down from only 6pm onwards... What task could take place there?
