All are doing the chips at the same time!



And this shot was taken as they run to the taxis waiting outside Terminal 2 at LAS:



This shot indicates that the race ended at roughly 5:10 pm  :ascared  Must have been a hard chip counting challenge!  :lol:

I think there is a yellow team member under Meghan's right arm...

Notice that none of the racers hailing cabs at the airport have their large backpacks with them - just small daypacks.
Compare that with the decoys in Vegas - they had their full backpacks with them.

Where are their bags? Still at the baggage claim?

My hypothesis is that the  3 decoy teams left Prague around noon Thursdayaugust 6, so they reached Las Vegas as follows:

OK650 Prague (PRG)  -  London (LHR) 1235 1345 connecting in Heathrow with
BA275 London (LHR)  -  Las Vegas (LAS) 1535 1825
 
That way they are well rested for the final race day and their bags have been long stowed in a hotel long before the Final 3 ever arrive in Las Vegas. If they need some bags for appearance sake, they bring those along.

Does anybody know what is the red striped hotel in the background of this shot?

It's gotta be New York, New York. That's part of the roller coaster in the background.

That'd place them right around here:


EDIT: Actually, they might be more toward the entrance (up and to the left).

The other option could be having them rounding this corner, it lines up better:

Diablo's Cantina is owned by the Monte Carlo.

Thanks guys!  This looks about right.  So this shot is of Meghan & Cheyne arriving at the Monte Carlo for the chip counting task.

We see Brian put a stack on the table, perhaps they are labeled with where they have been type clues or tasks they have done, like maybe say for instance a monkey chip? And perhaps they have to collect x amount of one color with the logo then stack it in a certain order on the table?

Maybe it's find chips with your name/face on them.  A red chip would stand out pretty well among all those greens, yellows and blues.

Maybe they start in stacks, and the racers have to spread them out to find the correct chips.

Brian has a stack of 10 chips, I can tell you that much. So he is making stacks of at least 20.

Chateau I know it's a lot to ask, but you're good with that whole "this happened at this time" thing. Any chance you can get the one of Meghan and Cheyne outside the Monte Carlo?

Looks the same. I know most are thinking she looks excited in that first pic, but I find it to look more nervous than happy.
