I did.  Could they be heading for the Pit Stop with it?

Usually the gnome is taken to the pit stop. In past years, one gnome had something on the bottom that signified a prize, but with budget cuts all around, I'm not sure if we get one this season.

looks like K/J were eliminated...
Yep.  That looks like a "we just got eliminated" confessional.

Tammy and Victor's confessional (spotlight on Tammy) looks so happy to me... If they got eliminated, at least we'd see their faces looking like in their confessions in Romania...

Oh yeah, Chateau, could you also comment on the times Tammy/Victor and Kisha and Jen were doing the roadblock?? Thanks so much for looking into this leg!

Yay Chateau and Puddin!

Cara's wearing the part for an imperial scholar!



Which is why the man on the bike says...
"Oh, they passed the imperial examinations!"

Good stuff Neobie and always great to have Chateau in the house  :jumpy:! Thank you!

Tammys conf does not sound like losers to me...

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.

eta: Neobie I think your Wenchang tower is good but wish we could find those stones/carvings in the other confessionals . Too tired to search Yiheyuan anymore tonight though.

So we have a Detour involving Peking Opera (since Tammy/Victor avoided it),
followed by a food-eating Roadblock,
followed by Jaime/Cara running around Liuli Chang Rd looking for Wenchang Ge (Pit Stop)?

Do you think there's still another task at Liuli Chang Rd, or...
given all the other "ge's" that sound similar (short list upthread),
did their driver send them there by mistake?

(White makeup does not look good on LaKisha.)



Since Tammy/Victor are clean, I guess were spared a U-Turn!

The light's clearly shining from the east (look at the long reflection of the cluebox!) when they're eating, while Margie/Luke's shadows are more southeast-ish? Am I right?

And remembering the Tokyo spoiler, they either won the leg, or they were eliminated. We just need to pick a side.

There's always the chance they could have lost, though.  Tammy (and Victor, to a much, much lesser extent) is generally a smiler.  So she could be acting very gracious in defeat.  Or they could've squeaked by and made the F3 and are happy for the chance at the million dollars.  Either case, she'd be smiling.

I have to agree with that, It seems too like they're so happy, I speculate that they even won the leg... :hearts: :jumpy: :wohoo: :yess: And their confessionals show it too... (I quoted the wrong posts earlier!  :funny: :funny:)

I wonder too why Jaime and Cara and Kisha and Jen's confessionals seem to be significantly later and gloomier (based on what you've posted) than Tammy/Victor's or Luke and Margie's... does it mean that one of them might be the U-Turned team? Just speculating again...

I don't think this team will be acting very gracious in defeat ESPECIALLY their parents would cry themselves to death, and embarrassing their Chinese heritage, their geographical knowledge and the whole of the Chinese population themselves... as they have been mentioning the past two episodes... :funny: :funny:

Just imagine it, similar to a court case, with them being great lawyers and lose to a case by novices...

If I were them, I wouldn't forgive myself if I lose in China too... it really would be an embarrassment

And the teams were colorful too... It means J/C, M/L and K/J are the only teams who wandered around for the U-TURN itself...

Did you notice that where K/J were doing the roadblock, they wore two different outfits and so did J/C and M/L. So do these two different outfits stand for two different characters??

I don't think there will be a U-Turn this leg...

There will be. CBS webclues show that the U-Turn rears its ugly head next week.

I don't think the Wenchang Ge or the Summer palace is the pitstop for some reasons. First of all, the summer palace is North West from TiananMen Square is is close by to the road block, unless either (A) There is another task before the pitstop or (B) Jamie and Cara are COMPLETELY going the wrong way it isn't it. Second of all, If you look closely at the background of Margie and Luke's Personal Interview, you will see 4 chinese character. I read Chinese and it doesn't fit with any of the pictures of Wenchang Ge that was given. The characters are (if your computer can't read chinese then the following will come up as boxes) 天一色中, which could be roughly translated to "Sky One color middle (i know it doesn't make sense because it is that last part of the "saying")." So do we have the right Pitstop because many Chinese gardens look like that?

I'm a bit confused here as to why people are writing off Kisha and Jen so early, based off there confessionals.

Feel free to correct me here, but how do we know those confessionals aren't from some sort of leveller that we see in the next episode?

(If you look at the TBC legs, most of them have some sort of equalizer that also functions to give the teams a break.)

And I'd be very mistaken if I didn't think that there are lots of places that have rocks.

Feel free to explain exactly why I'm wrong.

I think puddin posted this earlier, but if you need to see it again...

Next week's description from CBS:

Quote
COMMUNICATION IS CLEARLY NOT A SKILL THAT THE TEAMS POSSESS IN BEIJING AS THEY DRIFT FURTHER AWAY FROM THEIR DESTINATION IN SEARCH OF A U-TURN, ON "THE AMAZING RACE," MAY 3, ON CBS

"He Made Me Look Like Alice Cooper" (China) - The Racers must eat fried scorpions at a Roadblock, but even the distaste of a scorpion pales in comparison to the cutthroat behavior of a Team that publicly throws another under a bus with a U-Turn, on THE AMAZING RACE 14, Sunday, May 3 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Phil Keoghan is host.

If this was posted earlier, I apologize. I didn't see it.
