Finally, we get to see Cara lose control and start screaming.......lol  She is not so calm and self-composed after all.


(Note:This is said very tongue in cheek. I have lots of sympathy for her.)

I know the Chinese foot massage. This is not like the tender loving foot massage. This is grinding, rolling of the foot, knuckles to the ball of your foot massage and its very tough.

And damned funny, btw.  :funny: :funny: :funny: :funny:

FWIW, looks like racers are at a "practice pool", and probably not at the Beijing National Aquatics Center (as far as I can tell).   ;D

I think the detour choices are the swimming task (Beijing National Aquatics Center) and some track and field events (Bird's Nest Stadium)

lololololol karma for being the victim of an enraged deaf guy?
karma for being almost elbowed in the face?
karma for being pushed into the cluebox?

I thought it was clear who was truly at fault in that situation (and the editors seemed to agree with the constant flashback every time M/L talked to tell their side to prove otherwise)

kk, back to spoiler...

Cara must be doing the massage with another roadblocker. With her over-the-top reactions to her little bit of dialogue I think its safe to say she's talking to someone other than the cameraman. I don't think the other team member is in the same room and Kisha + Luke have been shown going through the massage with no one else in the room.

That should leave Jaimie/Cara and Victor/Tammy in the same time frame for the massage if all this speculating is correct :\

I'm wondering if Jen can't complete if they opt to take a penalty .. that's if its a NEL which makes sense unless of course they make leg 11&12 back to back continuation like a TBC but the CBS race map shows 2 pit stops in Beijing so who knows.

if they choose to quit, they will be assessed a 24-hr penalty... because it's a detour.

Next On The Amazing Race
Having a Baby's Gotta Be Easier Than This (China)
An Olympic task leaves racers gasping for breath. Animosity grows as two teams continue to hold a grudge against each other. One racer is paralyzed with fear-after coming this far, will they choose to go home? A Chinese foot massage puts racers through more pain than pleasure.

Tammy was right there in the preview.  Didn't you see her?  She's also in one of the pictures shown above.  Unless that's actually one of the masseuses.

LAWL so much on these comments. Daaahhh Bob got what he deserved.

If the swimming task is indeed a Detour, why don't they just go to the other one? I'm pretty sure they won't flat out quit. Unless... the other detour option can't be done anymore because of the hours of operation dealio (like the Russian metro detour last season or one of the 2nd Egypt detours of TAR5). That scenario sucks.

And the foot massage is a RB? Nice way to reuse a task, I think ("foot massage" detour in TAR12's Taiwan).
just dance

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

TPTB are not showing the water detour in the preview with K/J in the correct order.

Jen shown with goggles and life vest.
Jen shown swimming with neither item.
Jen and Kisha are talking in corridor without life vest.
Jen and Kisha are doing the detour, both wearing life vests.

I think K/J started the task and Jen freaked.  They discuss water phobia and then life vest were furnished and task completed.  No big deal and no major delay.  K/J are alone.  It seems with Jen's water phobia they would have done the other task.  Wonder why they didn't.

It appears task is like a relay where 1 member has to get to the other side of pool and back however they can while in the water and then the 2nd member jumps or dives in to do the same thing.  Jen probably dog paddled for her 2 lengths of the pool.

Edited to fix format mess up.

I am beginning to suspect that this is not a Detour task, because Kisha & Jen would not choose it, unless, as mentioned earlier, the other choice was not available because of Hours Of Operation. It could be a General Task, needed to complete by all teams and both team members.

Unless the second Detour option is running a lap in the Bird's Nest naked, then I don't see how this could be a Detour.

I can really understand what Jen is going through, unable to swim myself! :swim :hosed

GOT IT!  :jumpy:

THEORY ONE -

The anticipated 'Olympic Themed Task' is the detour for this leg.
1. Swimming
2. ?? Athletics?

J/K get u-turned by T/V because they think it was really rude to laugh at Luke. They do
other one but are forced to do swimming one because they are u-turned.

THEORY TWO -

T/V take fast forward. Explains absence from preview. Swimming is a misc. task??

THEORY THREE -

T/V are super behind or ahead. Either they or J/C u-turn K/J.

P.S. I HOPE K/J GET ELIMINATED. THEY ARE SO RUDE AND INSENSITIVE. AS MARGIE SAID THEY
ARE BLACK AND KNOW HOW IT SHOULD FEELS TO BE LAUGHED AT ETC.

Now that I think about it, if the swimming was a detour option, K/J being U-Turned makes complete sense
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move
