Maybe they didn't think it was that physically demanding, or they skipped Season 6
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

Most people would probably only watch after Ethiopia. :funny:

I am really curious if Dan is telling Sam additional clue info, or if he just remembers the episode.  Because if its off memory good for Dan awesome for being a terrible brother.
maybe each leg they go for a different race archetype, dubai 2 they were alpha male, netherlands they were the token gay team, and in sweden they'll be the psycho siblings

Weren't Lena & Kristy sisters? :funny:

And for the explosives: where in Sweden could they possibly do it? And what does it have to do with friggin' Sweden? The invention of the dynamite? :P

I think this could be a TBC,

BUT, as we all know... Phil told the teams, whoever crosses the finish line after TWELVE legs will win the 1 M Dollars... so chances are, we might have only 12 single legs this season too...

I bet Maria's going to do the roadblock. Just like the female team before them, that will be their downfall.  :'(

The strategy of Tiffany doing all the tough ROADBLOCKs is about to have its ugly consequences exposed. The RB balance count is after episode 7 Tiffany 5 Maria 2. That means it is almost certain that Maria will be doing the next ROADBLOCK whatever it is.

Raymond, you are right on the money. Doubtless you have heard of the Nobel Prizes in selected fields. They are funded by a trust fund set up initially by Alfred Nobel, the inventor of dynamite, patented in 1867 and still a huge seller worldwide. Alfred Nobel was Swedish and his first factory was in Sweden. I have no doubt that the World Race Productions are honoring him with a general task or DETOUR involving dynamite. Actually, I think that will make a poor task because there is lengthy safety instructions needed, there will be to no opportunity for little place changes among the teams. So what if there is a big bang that is visually appealing.

I beleive that all teams except Maria/Tiffany had completed their tasks. remember that they would have arrived in the Groningen area by about 9am. The obvious flight choice from Amsterdam to Stocklholm is nonstop flight:

KL8223 AMS ARN 0715 0915

Should there not be room on that for all 5 or 6 teams on Sunday morning August 2, here are some additional connecting flights to leave at essentially the same time and get there later:

AF8223 AMS CDG 0715 0840 connecting in Paris to CDG ARN KL2062 0940 1210

LH2689 AMS MUC 0715 0825 connecting in Munich to MUC ARN LH3002 1010 1215

KL1141 AMS OSL 0705 0900 connecting in Oslo to OSL ARN SK490 1200 1300


For those of you who join Peach and I as fans of the Bremen route, unfortunately we are out of luck on the flights to Stockholm. There is are no flight combinations out of Bremen to there that make any sense.

Coutzy and Snooky,

You have to ask yourself why would the ending of episode 7 not be revealed. Would there be any drama if a team were doing poorly but eliminated at the beginning of telecast #8 (I feel only the part after the REVEAL can be considered episode 8)? No, there wouldn't. There has been ample evidence that episode 7 was a NEL. Would Phil have allowed a team to quit if by taking a DETOUR penalty (usually 24 hours) they will still be in it. That puts them a day behind the other teams, but it is conceivable although unlikely that bunching could get them back in it.

I don't think Phil eliminates them because if he were going to we would have seen that as the end of episode 7. I don't know how he gets them out of this mess, but I predict that WRP/Phil find a way. They can be very inventive.

As per Tiffany Michelle's Blog:

Quote
1.THE QUITTING THING: Technically we didnít ďquitĒ, we took a penalty for not completing the Detour which happens to be a 24hr penalty (for an unfinished Detour)... mind you, that was AFTER over THREE HOURS of attempting both challenges. Obviously we knew that by giving up on the Detour and asking for the penalty we could VERY likely be eliminated, it was unlikely that we could withstand a 24hr penalty unless it was a non-elimination leg but ďquitting the RaceĒ was not what we did, technically we took the penalty (although they worded it differently when Phil came out to the field) and at the point that Brian & Ericka checked in we were then eliminated.

Also, wikipedia has them listed as eliminated (as much as we can trust that), and also has them down for calling the Elimination Station and informing teams of their elimination. (I can't verify this as ES is not available in Australia)

Interesting information, Coutzy. There is two ways to read it:

1. When Brian and Ericka checked in for the pit stop in Vierhuizen Maria and Tiffany were eliminated, which does not seem possible since that had not stated a desire to take thet 24 hour penalty.

2. When Brian and ericka checked in for the pit stop at the end of episode 8 in Sweden Maria and Tiffany were eliminated. This is what I think happened. How can you have  SpeedBump in Sweden if there is no teams that earned it?

We will see at the beginning of telecast 8.

I suspect that TPTB planned for it to be an NEL, but that with the super penalty, figured that the other teams would be able to finish the leg in Stockholm before M/T departed from Groningen and so decided to eliminate them outright (much like U/J in All-Stars).

Yup. Just watched ES and they phoned in. But like what zackattack said, probably this was an NEL before and then they had to shift the NEL to this leg.

I believe we have confirmation that the speed bump (no CAPS) referred to in the press release is actually the new feature, the Switchback (Capital S).

Or NOT. :duno:

Extensively discussed in the Ep 7 thread.

Yes, they were eliminated per Tiffany.

I just noticed tiffany and maria and kelly and christy from season 12 came in 2nd on their previous legs before being eliminated 6th and both are all-female teams. looks like we will have to wait next season if a all-female team finally wins the amazing race. it's been 15 seasons. :(

Why the hell did Meghan choose to do it? :groan:

That's a good question.  She just did the Bell counting RB.  I don't know what the balance is between her and Cheyne.

According to Wikipedia, Meghan and Cheyne have done three RBs each (because of the FF in Dubai). Everyone else is on a 3-4 balance.
