OH MY GOSH!
I SO DID NOT SEE T/V, C/J, AND M/L BEING THE FINAL THREE.

I AM EVER SO SURPRISED.

*sarcasm*

In my case, at least. Those three have been mostly expected by me the entire race, based on editing.

I got two out of three right, but I was misled by the sight of Tammy & Victor with Phil and the executive producer -- or at least in the same area as them.  I thought that meant they were out of the Race.  Instead it appears to be LaKisha & Jen.  I'm glad Tammy & Victor are safe, but part of me wishes it was Margie & Luke who were out and not LaKisha & Jen.

Doesn't help that they're three of the four teams who got pre-season promos.

Which goes to show that these theories usually end up wrong as Mel and Mike are not final 4 nor 3. Most were sure Amanda & Kris were at least final 5 because they were featured in a pre-season video as well.

Still, the other three are the F3, so . . . And I think Mel & Mike just got one due to their prior fame, rather than them making the F4 (which they didn't).  Maybe the show just wanted to give the "big" characters of the season their own promos or something.

Do you think the detour could be related to Chinese Opera (like both of them) and one could be wear it (wearing the costumes of the Beijing Opera) Or Sing It (Sing Chinese Opera)?

I wonder if you get the gnome at the end of the Detour.  If so, we see Jamie & Cara with a gnome before their faces are painted.  Thus, maybe the started with the Tammy & Victor part of the Detour and then had to U-Turn for the opera make-up.

Someone may have mentioned it, the U-turn is located in the Huguang Huiguan as well.

This area looks like the same as the U-turn sign is located:-

The Chinese opera detour probably takes place in the main theatre area but not at the museum, hence teams may not know that the U-turn is nearby as well.

Wow. 2 titles! Is this the first time ever?? :)

Quote
who heads off to Maui as decoys? thanks Pedaler

Wow. It's sad Kisha and Jen got eliminated. But, wow.. a Margie and Luke, Cara and Jaime and Victor and Tammy final 3 sure is exciting.. it would be cool to see Cara and Jaime do a Joe Jer and Zabrina (ARA1).. but at the same time it would be cool to see the race first ever deaf racer win (ARA2, Adrian).. or a sibling asian team win.. whom i'm rooting for. I would say, a good and competitive FINAL 3!!

And fried scorpions? Ewww, i know they just taste like crunchy tidbits. But kudos to the teams for eating those. It's super disgusting and in China, they eat almost anything. They have fried grasshopper, ladybird, bugs, snails and anything you can ever think of.. even red ants and spiders i think. I'm not eating those. But this could be a good FF task (aka TAR 9) because you really have to go through something challenging to earn your reward! But i'm not doing it if i was on the race though. LMAO!

And i'm not surprised Kisha and Jen will get U-TURNed.. they are normally slow and clueless about what they're doing. They are just the other version of Kami and Karli, with better physical ability and lucking out that the teams they are competing against are less competitive and made more mistakes.. that is why they are in the F4. And they are given so much lesser edit than the other 3 teams.. thus i will really be surprised if they made the F3.

Anyway, i'm loving this season and i can't wait for the finale. Someone please contain my bursting excitement! :funny: :jumpy: :hearts: :jam: :wohoo:

Regarding the u-turn and the detour.  I haven't seen any possible locations listed yet for the task T/V chose.  The 2 detours must be relatively close together, if not in the same location.  If it is the same way as it was in episode 4 (when A/K were u-turned), the teams complete the task and are given a clue to find the next clue box, with a warning that the u-turn is ahead.  They have to find the clue box, which should be next to the U-turn.  I really can't see them having the u-turn in the same building as one of the detour choices and have the other detour choice be far away.
So any/all of the teams could be wandering looking for the u-turn NOT because they were u-turned, and NOT because they want to u-turn someone.  They all have to find the box to get their next clue.
That said, my official speculation is...T/V u-turn K/J.

I also think Tammy & Victor U-Turn LaKisha & Jen, and Victor's the one who says "No More Mr. Nice Guy."  Maybe they think that the other two teams are ahead and that's why they go after the sisters.  Or maybe they just realize how good LaKisha & Jen are as runners.

I think season 7 1 episode had 2 titles ..but I'd have to check the archives.

Never seen that title before. Two titles sounds a little pointless.

Puddin,

Just an FYI, I think that the uniform you saw is just the regular policeman's uniform and in addition the guy next to Margie looks like this random old man walking in the park.I live in china an a lot of old people dress like that .

or maybe luke telling his mommy. sometimes victor can be bad but i think he wont do it because K/J arent bad to them. But if they are good enough to think about the running thing then, he could be the one saying that. XP
