Any chance we can decipher the sign behind Cheyne in the poker room? I'm trying to figure out if it's a high roller room or a regular poker room...looks like a high roller room to me.

It looks as if it comes down to a footrace between Meghan/Cheyne and Brian/Ericka...

It looks like Megan and Cheyne will make it there first if Cheyne is ahead of Meghan.

I remember 3 years ago when I saw LOVE, I think those flowers are from the part of "Hey Jude"
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

I think Puddin was right all along: Casa Shenandoah, Newton's place.

STOP being so modest Slowhatch!! You called it not me!  :yess:  :jam:



  The clue that Elvis handed them said to go to the MGM, and that Wayne Newton would be involved.

Wayne Newton is a good guess. He has a large estate just a few blocks from the airport that could easily handle production, and his schedule was clear (at least as listed on his website) for July and August (video here).

I'm trying to match the brown felt on the gaming tables... and yes. it apears to be a high stakes room...

so far the Golden Nugget (downtown) has "similar" brown felt on their tables... but can't match the old time decorations...   :duno:

I'm trying to read the tables, it definitely appears to say "The" something and the writing looks similar to the Mirage, but they don't really have any pictures of their high stakes rooms. Still looking though...

The chips, however, definitely don't appear to be from any casino, just generic chips. Security issues, I'm sure.

It was very hard to tell, they arrived all at the same time, so very unclear who is teamed up with who.  There were four Males, and two females, one was black.
I think was a Male/Male team, then a Male/Female team, and a Male/Black Female Team, but not totally sure.

With the finish mat located, if we get anymore pics, Chateau should be able to give us times.

But we have no pictures of any of the teams at the finish line so its stating the obvious?

Do you think they will have them go through the front entrance on Tomiyasu Ln or the back entrance on Pecos?

EDIT: after looking at it, they probably drop them off at the front gate on Tomiyasu and have them run the rest of the way to the finish mat.

The Poker room is at the Monte Carlo:

(based on the paintings, the carpeting could have changed)

I'm new here, and I am probably reading this wrong....but does this quote above mean that Dan/Sam came in first, then Meg and Cheyne, and third Brian and Erika?

In the pic above puddin posted it looks like Meg and Cheyne are ahead of Brian and Erika.

The picture with the stone bridge is at the wedding chapel, where we previously heard that all 3 teams arrived together.  We don't have any pictures near the finish yet.
