THUS, patterning it to the spoiler that we had last time...
Jaime and Cara were talking about a fighting third team to Margie and Luke = Tammy/Victor whom is probable to have an edge over the others because of that footage...
Margie and Luke arrives last at the airport for the final leg, does not see Tammy and Victor fight or brush off each other, while Jaime and Cara sees them though, and they tell the story to Margie and Luke. It also makes sense that they get ahead of the others at JAL and eventually landing with Phil and BVM. what happens next... you gotta watch the finale!


What did you see that I missed that makes you think T/V are fighting please? ???

Xuanwu District, just south of Heping Gate Station, very near where the Chos got lost in TAR 10.1.



Looks like generic role makeup rather than a character makeup... The female 'dan' and the clown 'chou'!
Oh God their makeup looks ugly (by Chinese standards)... :lol:

Interesting... so they are in the Xuanwu duistrict... what a coincidence.... just happened to stumble accross the oldest Peking Opera Theater & Temple in that same area...

Zheng Yici Peking Opera Theater

Maybe they got their makup there as they seem to wandering the streets loking for the market nearby.

JerseyDude's got it.

Exactly midway between Wangfujing Main St and N Heyuan Main St, along Dongan Gate Main St.

Which is also EXACTLY where the TAR1 Roadblock took place. The restaurant has since been converted into a bank, though.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Basing on the previous insider videos, Tammy/Victor are fighting during pit stops, as Jaime and Cara overheard, and Tammy and Victor confirming it either... It's just a take, but since it's the last leg, everyone's paranoid about the others, so a mere talk or accent could be taken as fighting or another term too...

Seeing Jen and Kisha being too supportive of each other (LOVE THEM SO MUCH after this episode!) during this episode's detour, I just can't stand seeing them fighting anytime soon, well, we could also take into account that what the J/C and M/L are talking about in the airport would be their quarrels against Kisha and Jen...

We need Chateau for the light angles!! There's excessively too much in this preview!  :lol: Where art thou??

Speculating's getting too much fun for me Peach, I'm getting paranoid myself!  :funny: :funny: :funny: Thank God for RFF as I don't have any others to express my opinions, speculations and insights on this show here in my country...

OMGah! Another homage to TAR1!

These look backs are kinda scary though... making it seem like it's the final season. Though I know it's not.

Nice spotting, Boingo!  :wohoo: The link you provided includes photos and interactive maps; if those two are trying to reach the food market, they went south instead of east.

In the clip, when K/J are at the roadblock, I think I hear Keisha say "look, there's Luke and Margie", or something along that line. Correct me if I'm wrong hehe.

Oh and Jaime China doesn't suck! Haha, it's your attitude that sucks LOL. PLEASE Cara! Do not emulate from your "partner"!!!!

Maybe Neobie can link this location to the Zheng Yici Peking Opera Theater somewhere nearby.   :snicker:

Nice job Boingo!  :jumpy: ..and everyone!

dropping these off, future confessionals

Tammy: Victor and I've been (visited?) Beijing for the Olympics and we've been fortunate to come to China several times, having been here before, having a geographical knowledge of the places and knowing how the streets work ... being familiar with the culture and the language here in China has given us a huge advantage.

Victor: We are not swimmers, at all! Weeks before even coming on the race she took lessons.
Tammy: I was the only person in the adult lap pool that had to learn how to put my face under water and breath out. Swimming is not my strong suit.




Jen: that was the most difficult detour that we've had and I have a  definite fear of water and I just had to push through that and Kisha knows my weakness and I'm glad she was there pushing me I'm sure a lot of other people would have let me quit like I wanted to .. luckily i had my sister there
Kisha: we chose because shes not that good of a swimmer
Jen: I'm not a good swimmer at all I just think of drowning automatically so I won't put myself in situations where I would drown



Margie: oh my gosh we had to put on razor suits , they were so tight
Margie translating Luke: after swimming that distance I had a lot of respect for Michael Phelps .. it was very hard, I was so tired

Can anyone pick out what Jaime/Cara are asking for? Wencheng Ge?

There are many "ge's" (courts) on that road, but I can't find an exact match. There's a Ruicheng Zhai, Wenhui Ge and a Cuiwen Ge... Could any of them be it? (They all sell Chinese scholarly/calligraphy stuff, I think.)

They changed the title? And finally the U-Turn rears its ugly head

No More Mr. Nice Guy (China)
This week's U-Turn isn't anonymous but that doesn't stop one team from throwing another under the bus. Racers crunch on fried scorpion among other Chinese critters. Colorful teams wander the Beijing streets for hours in search of a U-Turn, which is right where they started.

Sounds like the poem !
The eye sees beyond a thousand miles of lakes and hills,
The individual is lost in the colour of sea and sky.


Definitely a big park or a pagoda to be able to see a thousand miles, then?

I'm going to post this here you could see traces of make up around Cara's lips.

Jaime views her shouting as motivation for her partner. Cara sees it differently.
 

Sisters Kisha & Jen talk about their struggles at the Detour.

Sibling lawyers Tammy and Victor discuss how difficult the Detour was for them
