I think the taxi looks the same too. It'd be much easier to be able to communicate with your driver and be like "HEY! STAY WITH US!" haha.

The one where they look more nervous looks like it's near an entrance to the freeway (from the sign in the back) so might be earlier in the race? Although from McCarran they wouldn't need to be on the freeway at all. The closest that they would be to the freeway would be when they're in the south end...near MGM, Mandalay, Monte Carlo, etc. as they would be on Tropicana. IIRC correctly there are NO signs on LV Blvd directing you to the freeway until you hit right by New York New York.

^^Looks like the same taxi to me, is that what you're asking?
Same or no?

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.
that the scene would leave us to believe that they are on the way to the finish line but in reality they copped the first cab to the strip

Thats what we are believing, yes. The best route to the Graceland Wedding Chapel would be to take the ramp on to Swenson, where they would encounter the first sign.

There is a overhead highway exit sign in the background of the pics of Meghan and Cheyne in the taxi.  That ought to tell us where they were in that clip. (Someone needs to manipulate the pic to make the sign more clear.)

No need. The sign on the left says "Las Vegas" at the bottom and the one on the right says "15 S" which IIRC should say "San Bernadino"

After giving it some more thought, I believe you (and Chateau, who made a similar point) are right. It's been about 15 years since I've been to Las Vegas and I can recall that the front of the hotels along the Strip was alive with people and activity. However, if you were on a side street a block or two over from the Strip and behind a hotel, there wasn't much going on. Since they were repelling down the back side of Mandalay Bay, that probably kept the onlookers to a minimum. For all I know, 50 people posted tweets and blog entries about they saw stunt men repelling down a building for a movie being made in Las Vegas and we would never have spotted it since they didn't refer to the Amazing Race.

Vegas is a zoo, circus and roman feast all in one. It is a perfect place to "hide in plain sight." It is so hedonistic and me centered, its amazing to me that we got as much info as we did from that leg.

I  agree totally!

YOUR call????  lol

Chateau was the only one to guess the right chapel VS

I know there are several Elvis wedding places but I 'm going to put this one out as the one:  Graceland Chapel




Its location:

619 Las Vegas Blvd. South
Las Vegas, NV 89101

Google maps says it is 14 min from the airport

The flight from Chicago UA 551 (fastest route from Prague) landed at 2:07 pm.  If things going likitysplit then I can see them getting up to this chapel by about 2:30 pm.   :jam:



Maybe I guessed right!

You are correct!!

Yes yes that is correct....But I knew it all along   har har har!  ;)

more, just the important ones

Is that a red ROADBLOCK clue in Brian's hand before he lays a wet one on the lips of Erika? Is this after the indoor bungee bounce to grab the bouquet from on high?

Well after they get the chapel clue they go to the MGM , when they go to the Mirage to do the bungee thing its ground level so I don't think theres a need to take the elevator? Why don't you go try to match the elevator kiwi, i'm doing something else right now.

VegasSinner, when I mentioned downloading a map of the MGM in the thread you created this summer, you mentioned something about the sky towers. I bring this up because if Brian And Ericka are taking an elevator, it could be coming down from the sky towers where they recieve the roadblock clue.

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:



If you look in this picture. Behind Megan to the left. Is that Sam? on the table. Which could mean this poker task chip thing is actually the roadblock. We don't see Cheyenne, Ericka or Dan doing the roadblock?

Just curious. Also could it be that Sam/Dan get stuck behind on this task, while our final two are Brian/Ericka & Megan/Cheyenne with a foot race. I would love a foot race to final matt like Chris & Alex w/ Tara & Wil That would be awesome.

But I do believe that is Sam behind Megan.

Well I am confused. It does look like only one team member is doing the chips, but if it is the Roadblock wouldn't Erika have to do it? We see Brian handling the chips. And someone upthread posted that it looks like a small mirror in front of Mehgan's right arm, and I agree with that. Why would they need to use a mirror?

What about the elevator to Mandalay Bay? That would be the only other option and since Mandalay Bay has a gold thing going on...

Read the thread, Sam and Dan are working together as well as Cheyne and Meghan, we see Brian but no shots of Ericka who we have to assume is helping  :groan:

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?


This shot was taken between 2:58 and 3:41 pm (assumes August 7th).
