Is the other person in the red shirt a camera man filming?

If all the rope-walkers are facing the ocean, does this mean Adrian falls  :iok at the end rather than the beginning? (And does anyone else think the clothesline is phony? :js:)

I don't know about the clothesline ;), but judging by the background I would say Adrian is closer to the South end (the finish).

I still think the only reason we see Dana on the wires is because Adrian couldn't finish, but it does look like he came close.

Have we established that there were two flights?  I thought they all ended up on the same flight.

Bus schedules from Santiago to Valparaiso may have spread out the teams, though.

Is this season different than the others? In the past there have always been 2 or 3 flights from the starting city.

There were two possible flights mentioned in the spoiler thread.  One was through Dallas/Fort Worth and the other through Miami.

No teams were spotted boarding the DFW flight.  The Miami flight was delayed slightly and arrived about 40 minutes after the DFW flight.

Jeff and Jordan were supposedly on the Miami flight, which was the later of the two flights, but they seem to be in the earliest group at the high wire challenge.

Mike and Louis along with Catie and Brent were on the same Miami to Chile flight that Jeff and Jordan were on.

Guessing the big gap between the first set of teams on the ropes and the second (Jodi/Shannon, Monique/Shawne) is due to bus schedules? One bus leaves Santiago and then another one 2-3 hours later?

Have we established that there were two flights?  I thought they all ended up on the same flight.

Bus schedules from Santiago to Valparaiso may have spread out the teams, though.

Hello!
There has to be a second flight.
I live in Santiago, and buses from here to Valparaíso or Viña leave every 5 minutes from 4 different bus terminals, so there is no bunching for buses.
One thing that calls my attention is that the teams, just arriving at the airport, have to get inside the city and go to the Tur Bus terminal which is in downtown (by the way, it is depicted incorrectly in the MAPS! thread, you posted the google earth screenshot of the headquarters of TurBus, not the main terminal).
So here's the thing: Turbus is a bus company, and all of its buses leave and arrive from this specific terminal (following its name) but the terminal is not exclusively for this company, there are a couple more bus enterprises that leave from there. Anyway, maybe the route info in LA stated especificaly to take a bus from that terminal (which makes nonsense otherwise, because it's not practical to travel from the airport to the downtown to take a bus to Viña, and the Santiago airport is on the Way to the coast, and because there is a terminal only for Viña-Valpo buses next to the nearest Metro station from the airport (Pajaritos Station, which is seen in Leg 4 of TARLA)
Or this is not specified in the route marker, spreading the teams in different terminals throughout Santiago, but this will make a difference of time of 1 hour aprox. as most, so that gap between the first and second group at the wire has to be another flight.

And this is my first post.

EXIF data I got from the Brandy picture was 9:52am PST. So they'd be right in the middle of the pack.

I think Adrian definately falls because he seems too close too the ground

Five hours between teams? That sounds less like a bunching (bus or plane) and more like an unexpected delay or penalty.

Do we know anyone else who's with Dana? They could be alone at the back... (Or hell, they screwed with the camera time.)

It seems Jody and Shannon, Dana and Adrian and possibly Brent and Caite and Jet and Cord fall behind which is possibly why Jody and Shannon are ELIMINATED 2nd because they catch a later bus and J/C and B/C are much stronger. But I'm pretty sure Dana and Adrian go first which is sad.

I assume someone wanted to save time by changing money while connecting in Brazil, thinking that all of South America used the same currency. Will be a laugh to watch  :snicker:

But did we have anything on the teams connecting through Brazil?

Teams on the one flight connected in Miami, and might have made the mistake there.

But why a team could have done that whereever they exchanged currency when they should have remembered they were headed to Chile suggests a violation of the crucial rule to read the frakking clue completely.
