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.

If this is the case, it makes me wonder about about Jeff/Jordan, they both said during BB that they were horrible at reading/listening to ALL the directions during school and in the BB comps.  :(

Yeah, it'll be hilarious -- for us, that is.  I don't think it'll be hilarious for the team who makes the bad error.  But unless it's either Dana or Adrian who makes the error, it most likely won't be a game-ending error.

I'm gonna post this one here since we are pretty sure this is the first episode

The teams of the CBS series "The Amazing Race 16" perform "Active Route Marker" in Valparaiso, Chile in which they must find a ladder and 2 cans of paint, then search for a picturesque house matching their particular color to paint, in order to receive their next clue.

Active route marker?

Something tells me there's no detour on this leg.

Yeah, that seems very likely, but at least we have TWO tasks after getting to the first destination city, unlike last season, when there was only one task in Japan (of course there was the starting-line elim. back then.)
We don't beat from the same heart.

I haven't seen that terminology before, but it does seem to be a general task that is not a detour, roadblock (or speedbump) which teams have to complete to receive the next clue.

I agree with you, but who knows, maybe CBS did something new in this race? :duno:

No, it's just a regular route marker (otherwise they would have announced it).

So, EP 1601 is pretty much:

1st 15 minutes: intro + getting to airport
2nd 15 minutes: Wulff's Castle/Roadblock
3rd 15 minutes: House painting.
last 15 minutes: check-in at pit stop.

3 tasks, if you count getting to LAX as one. This should be interesting.

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

Sounds like Adrian/Dana may have goofed  with switching the RB person....  :'(

"Fall behind" is ambiguous; it could just mean "fall behind first place" rather than the entire pack of Racers.

If it leads to elimination, I say it's Joseph & Heidi. If it doesn't, it could be anyone. I'm not sure it would be Adrian & Dana since they don't look like they could finish first anyway.

I don't think the first team receives a penalty this week.  I think there was a typo on their part due to haste

it reads:
Quote
Which team will be 1st 2 the mat + will fall behind w/ a penalty?

but it could very easily be:
Which team will be 1st to the mat and who will fall behind with a penalty

with all the shorthand in that tweet, it's obvious they wrote it quickly, and could've easily lost a word in the process

it happens to me all the time

Ya, the info is slightly less ambiguous in the Facebook post...

If the mistake is nearby in Valpo, production might make the team go back for a do-over; but since a penalty is mentioned, the mistake might have been back in Santiago or the trip to LAX.

Wonder if anyone took a ride with someone in LA? Normally they are not allowed to, but remember the tweet about the guy who wouldn't give a team a ride? ???

The penalty for using privately owned transportation is 30 minutes.  I can't remember which season or leg at the moment, but I do remember Phil having to assess a penalty at the mat on a team for hitching a ride in a private vehicle.
