lol, look at the cross necklace Jaime is wearing around her neck. Doesn't that make her a hypocritical person? Hehe... I think Cara should be the one wearing it, then maybe their luck might change a little with the cabbies.

Hope Tammy and Victor win the race!  :jumpy:

Final Roadblock is to find 12 surfboards from the pile of surfboards that has a picture of something from the location that they have been to and place them in the order they appeared on the race. A cheaper version of that as compared to Season 12??

Hmmm... Victor is the only one who looks happy in the taxi, but there is no way of knowing if that is the taxi to the finish line.

I came upon the same conclusion, Joab, while looking at the vidcaps.

I guess they have to cut down on the cost.. TAR 12's final Roadblock seems too expensive to make again. But they could easily re-use it again? :funny:

I liked the TAR12 final puzzle because both team members had to do it. I don't like it when everything depends on just one person on the team. At least they are all there at the same time so it should be exciting.

Abby, I think you meant TAR 13, not TAR 12. And as long as there is some final Race-related task, I'm happy with it.
I'm baaaaaack!

TAR 10's running around 10 blocks was lame huh? :funny: And TAR 7's Little Havana.. but i'm not complaining because it made Romber lose. :funny:

Which may mean that Victor is putting them up wrong.

I'm going to say that M/L win the race on the basis of the roadblock. Luke is such a student of the race that I think he'll have a huge advantage on a task like this.
Besides, I kinda like the idea of the bionic woman and the sinister deaf kid winning. Kinda like batman teaming up with joker.

Oops can't type numbers very well.   :-[  Yes, I meant TAR13.

I've changed my mind. At last Luke has to do something on his own; he can't let his Mommy do all the work. I also notice that he has a shirt on at the surfboards so the taxi pictures are probably before that.

Unfortunately StreetView will not be available; it only arrived in Hawaii a few weeks ago. This VR site, with panos of Kahili golf, beaches, etc., is the best I can manage for now.

Images of the fence have made their way onto the walls of art galleries, onto glossy pages of surfing magazines and calendars, and have been used as a backdrop for various television shows. Look for it in an upcoming edition of "Ripley's Believe It or Not!" book and a cameo appearance in the May 3 episode of CBS' "The Amazing Race."
  source http://www.mauinews.com/page/content.detail/id/517845.html

I think they may have got the date wrong, but the Surfboard Fence looks like a cool place to put a clue box.  http://www.surfboardfence.com/

  As of now, the fence goes around approximately half of the Dettloffs’ property, aka Ka’ohu Farms, Pe'ahi. It is possible the fence will someday completely surround this semi-self-sufficient farm, which is a haven for animals, crops, and fun-loving, energetic people.


video .. next time on the amazing race

Lame is an understatement. And Little Havana was <3<3. :lol:

Anyways: I agree. It looks like the surfboard task is a Roadblock and it probably is our geography puzzle/flag/similar to this task. Is the pig thing a Detour or just an extra task?

guessing the thing where margie and luke were on the (whatever u call it boat thiny) is a detour?
and if T/V had a huge lead w/ the flights, wont they be far ahead at the pigs and surfboards?or were the other teams on the same flight...

I think this would be a neck and neck footrace...

the surfboards task (clearly the roadblock) maybe after finishing it will lead them on the finish line and it is shown that all teams are there at the same time....

the detour maybe is before the roadblock...

the finale is so exciting.... :hearts:

can't wait

Hey puddin, thanks so much for the vidcaps!!

After seeing these promo’s, for me, it couldn’t be more obvious. T/V neck-and-neck with M/L at the surf board finals…you can’t hide the million dollar smiles I’ve seen in the post-Race pics, so I’ll give the coin flip to Tammy and Victor! Sadly, a blow-out for Cara and Jaime, and all NOT in HD  :'(  But after seeing how close they were to not making F3 anyway, they can't be too heartbroken.

Jaime has a tramp stamp…who knew?! ;)
