Margie/Luke, Tammy/Victor, Kisha/Jen arrived at the pitstop almost at the same time... so we can assume that they're teams number 2,3 & 4. Cara/Jaime were in 1st place while Mark/Michael arrived last and were eliminated.

Just a Speculation...

Jaime and Cara could be 4th and those 3 are the top 3?!

Chinese could help you on this race, Puddin!

Just check out the Chinese Chekhov notepad Jen is holding.

Well, either these three teams are the top three finishers for this leg, or they're all behind Jaime & Cara.  I'm pretty sure none of the four aforementioned teams will be last, though, due to the huge gap of time between all of them and Mark & Michael.

In other words, I think the brothers are as toast as the hot, buttered variety.

Just to let you know, there will be no more sports overruns for the rest of the season. We're finished with NCAA basketball, The Masters is done. CBS does have golf tournaments for the next few weeks, but since they do not have the ratings power that the NCAA or The Masters have, they will get cut off should they approach 7 p.m. ET.

CBS' entire primetime lineup will begin on time starting with 60 Minutes next week.
Just here to visit.

Guilin is not a commercial city...just a small tourist province...so taxi driver/people there don't know how to speak in English is quite normal :groan:

for more information:
I saw 安徽面馆(Anhui noodles house), which is next to the salon,
Anhui is another province that near Shanghai...
I think it's just a noodles house with the cuisine of Auhui.  :lol:

They did come to Guilin...

My boyfriend worked as an assistant, and didn't know that it was TAR until I told him afterwards - I watch it all the time.

They stayed at the Sheraton, and the host was waiting for the contestants at the Sun Moon Towers. They also went to the Diecai (Folded Brocade) Mountains and a steel factory.

They flew off that night, but the crew had to wait for everyone to get on the plane before they could leave their posts, probably for privacy.

I think they went to a salon to wash hair - but maybe it was just to get a clue. My boyfriend says that the host was tall and handsome.

That's all I know, you'd all find out for sure when the episode airs! 'Cause we all love TAR!

They flew off that night? Probably just Phil then? If they're flying to Beijing we should be expecting a 36-hour Pit Stop.

So for tasks we have the hair salon, comorants (riverside where Jen and Luke are fighting - and YAY!), something to do with the notebook and something to get LaKisha's hands dirty. We also have our Pit Stop, the Old South Gate, a steel factory and the very bizzare Folded Brocade Mountains.

That's a lot to fit in!

I remember the fishing cormorant from Survivor China reward and it was amazing!  :hearts:

Scenes from the City of Guilin

Cormorant Fishing

A traditional mode of fishing in China involves the use of cormorants to catch fish. Fishermen on bamboo rafts use strong lights suspended over the water to attract the fish. The cormorants, which are tethered with rings round the base of their necks, catch the fish and then disgorge them for the fishermen (When their work is done the rings are removed so they can eat. These shows are regular features of the high season, or they can be arranged, along with riverboats for an evening's entertainment afloat. The boats are flat, narrow rafts consisting of five or six large, round bamboo trunks tied together and upturned at the stern. The fisherman stands on the raft, using a pole to propel the boat. His cormorants perch on his outstretched arms, diving on his command. One good cormorant can feed an entire family.

Let's see.  Do Mark & Michael still get far behind everyone, or do they catch back up and someone else gets the boot?
