Ashe, the whole point of them not knowing that it is an extended leg is to catch the racers off guard. That's part of the race.
Other comments on this episode......
Did you guys feel that Jen/Kisha got sort of a negative edit this episode with their comments about the local Chinese people not speaking English and everyone having blank faces or something of the sort?
We've heard similiar negative comments on locals from Cara/Jamie throughout the race so when I head Jen/Kisha start up, a red flag went up for me like we are being prepared for their demise, so to speak.
overall I enjoyed this episode. I liked the airport action we got to see just because Tammy/Victor were able to talk to the airport employees and get a little advantage. I also liked the tasks. The one thing that kept bothering me was Tammy/Victor at the Synchronized diving task.....what part of "Synchronized" did they not understand?!
Didn't their clue mention the "Synchronized" part? It appeared like they were were diving without realizing they had to do it together and land in the water at the same time.
