Here Tiffany has one clue in her hand and is either pulling another one out of the box or is putting one back in.  Seems kinda fake to me.


plus NO sound guy, just using mike on camera... I'd say decoys.... :(

I was thinking maybe they were NEL'd and had to give up their backpacks, but they don't do that anymore.  They don't have any fanny pack or anything, so they are almost certainly decoys.

Tiffany is wearing her jacket in some pics and has it tied around her waist in others.  Can't really tell what order the pictures go in.

I have been looking at the tape of the teams coming out of the ferry...
I don't think Nate & Herb have a sound guy either and both seem very indiffrent. could they be a second decoy team and we are in the finale 4 ?

Maybe they're just keeping it cool

The poker girls have a different cameraman than in the video from the Netherlands.  Do they change cameramen or does the same one stay with them throughout the whole race? :duno:

I knew it!
I guess Mad Dribbling Skills beat Poker Faces :lol:
*bittersweet feeling*

Or the Poker Gals were on TILT, and the Harlem guys called their bluff!  Har Har Har LOL


Thank God!  That would have been too much if they were out.  They still might not make F3, but they're in now, so whew!  Only way I would've be okay with it is if the Brooks and Tiffany/Maria were still in it.

For real.  Like they were on a boat or ferry or something, made a bad turn and went the opposite direction.  The traditionally bad flop that's killed a lot of teams over the years.  LOL


Now, with the Harlem's not being a decoy, while that's fine, could it be someone else?  Five teams seems like a lot at this stage of the race, and there has always been at least one NEL (save for last season, though it was a TBC) when down to 4 teams.

not so much decoys but "example" racers provided for the invited media (local newspaper) to photograph and report on.  Good PR for the local fans, without giving away too much on the actual racers.  And we all know the media was invited to follow the poker players.   :snicker:

Have just heard from Terese, who is our wonderful Swedish source, who spotted the teams in Schipol and again in Arlanda where they were changing money.

Here is her blog link where you can read more about her encounter:
http://sparkibaken.se/

She writes:

Quote
The teams I saw was the boy and the girl (that are in the first picture), a african american team with two guys with Harlem Globetrotter-jackets, a team with a guy with pink(?) hair and then the last team with two black haired guys (I think one or two of them had glasses). It was the last couple who asked me about the fastest way to Gröna Lund and they wondered what was the highest point there.





Previous photo of teams at Schipol:





Thank you SO much, Terese!! :waves:

Based on Terese's photo, I am going to pull a Chateau and say that this photo was taken at 9:08AM. :funny:

But this does confirm the Harlem's as racers not decoys, as the decoy teams have no further contact with the active racers.

Teams change camera crews often, so that no one team/camera crew can bond I think.

I noticed that Ericka & Brian are not changing their money at Arlanda.  Good.

I hope I taught them well at LAX.   ;)

hi guys

so can we confirm that the poer ladies are decoys?

they do seem totally fake to me:

they dont have their backpacks,they dont have their small amazing race bag for passports and money, no sound, an assistant? (blonde woman) I had never seen that crew type profile in any tar spoiler or race.

and who else would be better to fake it than a pro poker player?

Maybe an amateur poker player posing as a professional poker player

Unless they actually show up later like they're still racing (which probably won't happen), I think it's not a matter of confirming a team as a decoy, but more in the line of waiting for the show to air to see if they get Philiminated at 6 teams or if they survive.  Kind of reminds me of TAR10 and TAR11 when people were mixing possibilities and hope for the BQs and the Cha, respectively.

lolol cant understand how u managed to understand a single word from what google translator translated  :funny:

heres the transalation by me:

"Postimees managed today to chase up the competitors of the amazing race, we ran through 2 check points with them. We received information that the world-known show Amazing Race has reached Tallinn and the first destination is the "house of the black heads". So we had to go and check it out.

Before noon the front of the house was pretty quiet, except for a lady hanging around the place and who wouldnt give out a single comment. After a while 2 girls showed up who were running up the Pikk street looking for the "house of the black heads" and asking the local construction workers about the destination.

After knocking on the door they were let in where they supposedly had to solve some tasks to receive information about their next destination. Soon the ladies were running towards an information point in the Harju street while asking for help from the locals. The fact that the next destination was the Hermann tower we managed to find out only from the information point as the questions asked from the cast and and cameramen were left unanswered.

While on their way there the girls were discussing among themselves and assuming they would be the fastest team but upon reaching the clue box their joy diminished as they pulled out the last clue.

After that we managed to lose the team who ran towards the downtown. Asking from the local salesmen revealed 3 or 4 teams had been around an hour ago looking for the same clue box in Hermanni tower.

How many teams are still running in the competition we didnt find out but based on a clue received from our reader we can assume there were at least 5 teams competing. Also we found out the teams arrived at 10 a.m. from sweden on board the ship Victoria.

Amazing race is the world known show.... (primefun: blah blah this is not important anymore)

I don't get on here for a few of days and all these incredible stuff! what fun!


That video with the teams scrambling for taxi, at 0:15, I hear the guy from the M/F blue team say what sounds like "Jill, get in, get in". Sorry if this has already been mentioned.

Here is a clarification of the practice that World Race Production typically uses, based on information from many seasons back and not likely to have changed for obvious reasons:

The camera/sound crew assigned to a team changes every leg.

Here is the combination ferry schedule:

Depart Stockholm 1700 for 15h 55m to Helsinki arrive with one hour time change at 1355.
Depart Helsinki 1430 for 2h 00m to Talinn arrive at 1630.

This could explain some of the behavior of the Poker Players. They landed 6.5 hours behind the other teams if they took the above combination.

I cannot speculate on whether or not they are decoys, but this information helps explain some of their behavior.
