Don't we have two episodes in Prague? The fact is that an NEL for the second one would imply a SpeedBump in the finale. That has not happened yet in any Amazing Race, but obviously it could. There is typically enough bunching in a finale to wash out the effects of a SpeedBump if WRP wants to have all 3 Final 3 teams still in contention toward the end.

I'm thinking its just a confessional place as well Gman, the rumor was that the Castle was the pitstop and I read it elsewhere but need to find the blog. The view looks like its coming from the Charles Bridge but haven't spent a lot of time on it.

The team spotted at the Castle were two guys, one with tinted hair!  That would be Gary and Matt and we know now that they are a decoy  team.  The other team could be our poker-playing babes who acted also as decoys in Tallin.

Find out which teams will make it to the final three on the next episode of The Amazing Race 15.[/quote
Don't you know by now? its the CBS webmonkeys at work! Remember the "speedbump" in Estonia thatdidn't happen? or the Eliminaton Station via "Sweden" when it was really Estonia? I really wouldn't lose a lot of sleep over it.

I highly doubt this leg is elim (it's boring to watch 3 teams race in an NEL, knowing that they'll bunch in the US).

I think there's gonna be a U-Turn this leg. U-Turn AND Speedbump on the same leg is cruel. (Assuming this leg's an NEL, (Which it should be.))

The last leg had a Speed Bump. We had an elimination as well.

TAR 12 Mumbai had both of them in the same leg. The leg also had the first Speedbump in TAR!

yeah, almost but since they're featuring Prague on TAR 15, the Czechs are now celebrating their 20th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution.  It seems that the producers of TAR made a coincidence on the event. :o

Sadly to say that they'd didn't went to Berlin, Germany for the 20th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. :(

Well if you want to be really picky, like me, you could say that they've been sloppy since TAR 12. :P Remember that awful website?

Topaz,
The producers obviously did not want to wait for Nov. 9, 2009 to have an AR15 go to Berlin or to start AR16 early enough so it could go to Berlin.

Nice puddin!! :jumpy:

Is this the same place? From slowhatch's great link in the MAPS thread:

http://virtual.praha.eu/towers/new-town-council.html

But if we see that tower behind B/E...where are they actually standing?? Cause that must be the Pitstop, right?

So maybe the Castle rumor...was a rumor?? ???

There was a new commercial in between Lets Make Deal and Price today.  Nothing too new, but there is a shot of the trotters and Meghan and Cheney climbing down the scaffolding screaming that that "THEY" are trying to slow us down.

The team that was "spotted" at the Prague Castle was two men one with "tinted" hair.  This would be Gary and Matt and we know that they were philiminated in Estonia.  So they probably are running around Prague as decoy teams.  So I would say the claim that the Prague Castle was a pitstop is for the birds.

Brian and Erika are standing on the roof of some building which would have to be some distance from the New Town Tower (the other small tower probably would be that of the Church of St. Cyril and St. Methodius. Between the two lies Karlovo Namesti or Charles Square which could be the pitstop.    +

If you draw lines through the two towers toward St. Vitus Cathedral which is part of the Prague Castle, you could back up to the Dvorak Museum. One of the most enchanting of the Prague Baroque style and is a wonderful tribute to the Czech Republics most famous composers.  Which indeed could be an interesting pit stop.

I heard "hes slowing us down on purpose!" but I guess it might be Cheynes voice? , its a voice over.

Hmm... Sam and Dan are with the two frontrunners at the theatre, but Brian and Ericka, who were right with Sam and Dan, are not present. Could they have been U-Turned by Sam and Dan?

^^ Sam and Dan took their cab, Ericka looks pissed! Brian looks hurt like he can't believe it. I have no idea how hard it is to get a new taxi in the area of the detours?

Looks like Cheyne and Meghan take public transit to the kayaking centre - I thought we had seen taxis there though.
Street view has a good image of this location as well. No 14 and 17 trains go to the stop they are at.
Looks like it could be awkward to figure out which direction to go to get to the kayaks...
Now I get it - since their cab was stolen too, Cheyne and Meghan are looking for a cab to get away from the kayaking site - they are standing at the closest main intersection - where they could potentially also get a streetcar into downtown Prague.
From there to here, and here to there,
funny things are everywhere

Whats this yellow strip of something that we see the racers carrying - its there at the kayak centre and the theater?

Looks like Chinese characters or maybe Viking runes?
