apskip, I appreciate your efforts, but I know TAR 1 didn't go to Russia, it went to Italy. :lol:

What I was getting at was that until the changes in/after TAR 12 that reduced the number of NELs, those usually occured in the first leg of two consecutive legs in a country. I keep notes too, but I hadn't correlated my notes of team leg placements by country.

What I was trying to do was speculate on a possible twist in Dubai that would catch the Racers and the viewer by surprise and still have us down to six teams after Dubai consistent with the spoiler information. I don't have anything to point to other than instinct, but I think it's worth throwing that idea out there.

Well Thailand an elim leg --> NEL in Season 2, while Switzerland TAR 3 had BOTH legs as NELsl And as for the twist: unless it's a double elimination at one mat, please no. :funny:

the schnauzers:
I now have the comprehensive story of all such situations and there is at least one in every Amazing Race from AR1 to AR15:

AR1 - ep. 2 and 3 France; ep. 4 and 5 Russia; ep. 8 and 9 Thailand
AR2 - ep. 1 and 2 Brazil
AR3 - ep. 1 and 2 Mexico
AR4 - ep. 1 and 3 Italy; ep. 6 and 7 India
AR5 - ep. 2 and 3 Argentina
AR6 - ep. 10 and 11 China
AR7 - ep. 3 and 4 Argentina; ep. 6 and 7 Botswana
AR8 - ep. 7 and 8 Arizona (note that most episodes are U.S. but that is too easy so I went for back-to-back in one state)
Ar9 - ep. 1 and 2 Brazil; ep. 4 and 5 Sicily

plus copying from above:

AR10, ep. 3 and 4 in Vietnam
AR11 ep. 2 and 3 in Chile
AR12 ep. 3 and 4 in Burkina Faso
AR13 ep. 1 and 1 in Brazil
AR14 ep. 4 and 5 in Siberia (Russia)
AR15 ep. 2 and 3 in Vietnam

apskip, I think you meant Tunisia, not Russia for Season 1. :funny: Plus, you forgot the two Morocco legs in TAR 3 & wasn't the first China leg in TAR 6 an NEL that saved Adam/Rebecca?



Question: If teams are racing on a track, doing a desert task, visiting the Burj Dubai and doing winter tasks in Dubai 1, what ELSE can they be possibly doing for Dubai 2? More desert tasks? An eating challenge? Tasks outside of Dubai (probably in Sharjah)? :duno:
I'm baaaaaack!

a good twist might be to have a TBC leg

but at the midpoint a team still gets eliminated

something like: "you're the first team to arrive, however, this leg is not over, and you're still racing..... you're the last team to arrive and unfortunately that means this leg is over for you, and so is this race."

That'd be a cool twist to see, something that everyone thinks is safe, but then still turns out to be an elimination point

Note the number of common letters (4) between Russia and Tunisia. I did mean Tunisia but sometimes it is difficult near midnight to decipher what I had written down earlier. Thanks for the catch, the schnauzers and Raymond. I will alter my table.

Raymond, I understand your comment on the Morocco legs in AR3. However, I do not look at the leg starting Cabo de Roca Portugal and continuing with Dieselgate through Spain and across on the ferry to Algeciras and then continuing from Tangier to Fez as a Moroccan leg even though the pit stop was in Morocco.

Raymond, you are correct that leg 10 of AR6 in China was non-elimination, which means there was no applicable back-to-back elimination episodes in the same country in AR6. Oh, well, I guess we can all survive that news.

I still think that hood could be a short form for neighborhood, it would be easier to spoil if we know for certain who said it... that would be very boring.

I don't really care about spoiling about what happens at this point, unless:
a) some team/s fall WAY behind
b) it was spoiled to be one of Mika/Canaan/Lance/Keri who said the quote, which could determine who goes earlier
c) it's actually an NEL, compared to what has been spoiled (VERY unlikely, but who knows really?)

It's the Jumeriah Sceirah for water slide in next episode. It was used in ARA1, episode 12 in Dubai. It's a tall nothing in terms on danger and difficulty.

Good catch, Slowhatch! :tup: Until I saw your link I thought, "Jumeirah?! Again?! This is getting close to beating the Macau Tower! (TAR 11, TARI 1, TARA 3)", but then I realized that going up the slide, the stairs were narrower, the top platform was smaller (the one Mika is walking around on panicking), there were dolphins (cool really) and the bar thing Cheyne let go of was longer. (Yeah, I am aware I may exaggerate the little details. :funny:)

I hope the fight isn't as bad as the promo makes it out to be. I'd hate to see Canaan turn into Lance on her.

Oh and poor Mika fear of water and heights.  Why not just throw her into a Pit of Snakes while were at it.

I don't know whether Canaan is going Jonathan, Mika is going Flo or both...
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Her intro video talked about how she was learning to swim for the show, wasn't very confident yet, and was bringing pink floaties because they made her feel safer/more confident.  :(
