TAR15 EP10: "We’re Not Working With Anybody, Ever, Anymore!"

11/22    Amazing Race 15 - We’re Not Working With Anybody, Ever, Anymore! (Czech Republic)





Prague Czech Republic 8/5

Coolios
I have just saw camera guy & sound guy (with "C" letter on backpack) @ Old Town Square, Prague. Photo evidence (photos here) s

oon.


graytex  
*I've stumbled on some info that there may be a kayaking task in the Prague area tomorrow.  Don't want to be too specific because I   TAR and don't want to mess up our race!
 

**Blog info from one of our Prague kayakers (friend of the last guy we got info from):

06 August 2009
 
Over the past few days at Prague there has been heaps of people buzzing around setting up this massive rigging system over the course. First thoughts from the team were they were setting up power lines, then a big screen. As it took more shape and the removal of slalom gates at the top part of the course it was clear, a rope climb above the course for ‘The Amazing Race’. Turns out the show was filming here all day today. I had a few chats to the rigging guys and what a life they live, cruising the world to amazing places to film people! I apparently was filmed while doing my session as they were packing up the ropes etc, but wont know I guess until it comes out on TV.. One good way to get you to watch the show….


with the help of  walkingpneumonia, Slowhatch, Boingo, Chateau, graytex and puddin and peach... task and photo evidence starts here


notes:
graytex
Haven't seen this here, but Masem at TWOP posted this:

Part of an addition to the TAR 15 article on Wikipedia that I had to remove due to lack of sourcing, but provided by user Awilmot there:
"On Wednesday August 5th, I have just seen 2 teams at Prague Castle, which was their pit stop. One pretty team (guy and girl in blue) and one all guy team (one with dyed hair)."


And there is MORE!! And y'all aren't going to believe this one!! :funny:

The following is a true DETECTIVE GROUP COLLABORATION from walkingpneumonia, Slowhatch, Boingo, Chateau, graytex and puddin and peach.

graytex discovered a lead that with walkingpneumonia's help, took us to the Troja WhiteWater Centre, a training facility for world class kayakers.

Photos and Map Link

Google Earth coordinates from Boingo: 50° 6'45.90"N    14°25'30.53"E

and Boingo's Troja Panoramio

And (map here, pano here) from Slowhatch

But perhaps the BEST discovery came when walkingpneumonia pointed out that this site had....WEBCAMS!!  Which refresh at two minute intervals and provide an hourly archive.

After that it was really a matter of sitting back and letting puddin snag >300 pictures, which we will make available later on, after we've had some sleep!

SO WHY is this mportant you ask? The answer is is that this is the site of one of the final four tasks leading to the last elimination.

We were able to see quite a lot of production scurrying about, 4 inflatable red rafts, and eventually a team (or half team) come directly by the webcam on the way to the white water rapids downstream.  A bird's eye view....  :funny:

Here are a few of puddin's finest to give you a taste of what we saw!!  Just be SURE not to miss the suspended cameraguys!! :lol:












All pictures taken via webam on Aug 5  between 10  and 3 PM Prague time.






Miracle of miracle,  I managed to snag the next frame at 10:04 am.  It has the suspended cameramen farther along the line.




Here is a GE view of the location

http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=18840.0;attach=126526;image

Looking in this direction, I think. (link)



Here is the layout as best as I can tell:  (opps, Slowhatch beat me to it!)

http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=18840.0;attach=126550;image

We have 5-6 hours worth of screengrabs , probably 200 or more and will try to figure out how to get them all up .. maybe a slide show so you all could see how it unfolded. Sadly as mentioned by peach, the webcam was on a 2 minute delay and this is most likely why we did not see all teams

We're sure we missed a team right before this frame ..as Chateau has pointed out


http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=18840.0;attach=126576;image
Nice! Fond memories of our Dubrovnik rigging...

All to move the camera guys around? Or something else too?
I told you they were some sort of gates peach! Thanks graytex!

So lets see if this works
Ignore the May 19th date ..it was a default folder setting I guess and am too lazy too fix it
The only pics I did not grab were very few in the time lapse as their was no activity
I was doing BB updates at the time so some screencaps slipped in , lol
Some might be duplicates ..
It was fun watching as it unfolded and talking to peach on the phone the whole time .. and so sorry for dropping the F Bomb numerous times peach  :lol:
:hfive: to the TAR Detectives  :jam:

That looks like a team that either was just fighting serious with each other or was eliminated, or saved by a non elimination.

They are still in it

Ericka conf: it was a dirty move, its go time and I'm going for the jugular and adding the pitstop is obviously the castle. *I think* , or is that the castle behind them?

Puddin we know they are still in it (just stating what would leave me with that expression.  I think saved by non elimination, and with that break we should be able to eliminate the chance of a TBC, as I don't recall any TBC having interviews between them, and if it was done at the end of a TBC (and still in it) no matter how well you did you are thrilled to be in the final three.

The decor/furnishings look like the Estates Theater in Old Town. Since Wolfie premiered Don Giovanni here, maybe they'll have to sing a little of that.

With 12 episodes, this has to be a Non-Elim. As for her expression, I don't believe anyone would be all smiles reflecting on that moment.

well, the Pit Stop definitely has to be downtown Prague
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

Judging by the edit, it looks like the RB comes first and Sam and Dan and Team Zebra are battling it out for last place, when the brothers take the cab, thus sealing Brian and Ericka's fate.

Although FT has some serious pit stains going on at the theater, so I don't know.

The decor/furnishings look like the Estates Theater in Old Town. Since Wolfie premiered Don Giovanni here, maybe they'll have to sing a little of that.

That indeed is the Estates Theatre (Stavovske Divadlo) where Mozart premiered his opera Don Giovanni in October 1787.  It looks like the three teams are there together and Meghan, Flight Time, and Sam are horsing around on the stage while Cheyne, Big Easy, and Dan are looking through various boxes (the ones you sit in to watch an opera not the packing kind) hunting from something. Perhaps the box that Mozart's patroness was sitting in at his premiere.  So this looks like a Roadblock.

From the this camera angle it looks like the Old Town Hall is behind them and the St. Vitus Cathedral is on the horizon, so I would guess that they may be high up on the Powder Gate or Muncipal House, both Prague landmarks and good places for the pit stop to be located. Or perhaps up on the Church of Our Lady Before Tyn which is located across the Old Town Square from the Old Town Hall (with the astronomical clock).

A timeline comparison with last season shall suffice.

Last season, teams spent one day trying to get into Krasnoyarsk, and another out of Siberia and into India. The Trans-Siberian Railroad was this season's ferry to Tallinn. That's why there was a TBC in Beijing.

This season, the only really long-distance flight was Cambodia to Dubai. Thus, we'll be seeing a NEL next leg, unless there was a 36 hour pitstop before Vegas.

That could be the detour.  Either fly down the zip line (both Erika and Brian are rigged in harness) or cruise down the white water course in a kayak.
