Jen wants to know whether the partygoers in the taxi are trannies.
Apparently ... yes.   
Jaime/Cara don't seem to notice ... yet. They're having fun.
Tammy conf: The partiers in our taxi were very fun, very encouraging!
(The music goes DOINGGGG, meaning they missed the trannies!)


Local man with a greenish parrot on his shoulder: Welcome to Bangkok, Thailand.
Phil: Margie/Luke, you are team #1!
Both: WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Phil: You've won a sensational trip to the Intercontinental Spa in San Juan, Puerto Rico!

Kisha makes the huge mistake in not trusting Jen. They arrive third, but have to go all the way back to get their stuff. This ensures they get eliminated. Well, maybe. Mark & Michael still have to do the Detour.

Kisha/Jen getout and run.
Tammy/Victor get out and run.


Man: Welcome to Bangkok, Thailand.
Phil: Kisha/Jen, you're the third team to arrive. Tammy/Victor, you are the fourth team to arrive. Kisha/Jen, your travel documents are at the Roadblock. You cannot leave Thailand, so I cannot check you in. You must go back.


COMMERCIAL.

I'm feeling it's a typo or BVM assumes we forgot what happened over a two week period. :lol:

Jen says in the post-race confessional, "...we have a lot of regrets."

What does that tell you?

For D R O M M A H , TPTB replay the "you must go back" segment again.

Phil: Tammy/Victor, you are now team #3. Congratulations.
Kisha/Jen actually get back in the same cab, I think!
Jen conf: Our assumption was that we had to take the boat back to where we got it. But now we have a lot of regrets.

Mark/Michael don't have enough money for their cab ride, either.
They offer flashlight, compass ...
They get into the karaoke taxi!
It's very late in the afternoon now. Traffic seems to have subsided.
Kisha/Jen find the Roadblock site and run to get their bags.
Michael and Mark like "the pretty local girls. We can have a good time!" 
Kisha/Jen have their bags and going back to Thai Palace.

Mark & Michael still did not get the fact that the "women" in the karaoke taxi are TV's. :lol:

So this season, apparently no penalties for taking private transportation (as far as I can see)... no using personal possessions to settle bills.

And BVM is making up time as he goes along (but he did that last season too).

I throw my hands up. :duno: :duno: :duno:

First time I heard that rule.......guess it is new.

That is actually a long standing rule, no one is allowed to sell or trade their own possessions, otherwise everyone would come with a few expensive watches to trade. They ARE, however, allowed to sell or trade items they buy along the way with race $$, so if you are cunning, you might be able to buy something along the way that would be useful.
