Since it is quite clear that the telephone task is a Roadblock, I start to wonder how a team would give up in this task and take a 4-hour penalty.
Would it be the case similar to TAR13 2nd Moscow leg that if a team could not solve the clue correctly, they need to wait for some time, say 10 minutes, before they could have a 2nd try? If so, it only takes 24 wrong trials to make a team lose 4 hours, and this makes the decision of quitting the task reasonable.
Nonetheless, it is highly unlikely that a team could overcome this penalty in a F4 leg. I guess in last season even Tammy/Victor did not have a 4-hour lead on Jen/Kisha in the 2nd Beijing leg?
Besides, do you think we will see a U-turn this leg? I know there was an un-aired one earlier this season, but there should be at least 2 U-turns in one season right?
I hope the next leg will be as long as the one in last season, where teams raced from night till noon!
