I forgot to ask who said "Nana is kickin' you butt"?

It was Mike or Louis (not sure which) while looking for transportation in Los Angeles.

 :groan:  OK, I think I get what you're thinking, Neobie.  If they did take the bus from the airport to Pajariots Bus Terminal, then all they had to do was to get off and get on another bus to Valparaiso.  However, according to this blog or this translated blog the airport bus also stops at the other Santiago bus terminals. 

Jury is out as to which they used to get to Valparaiso, but I think in the second leg they take the bus from Valparaiso to Terminal Alameda, and then walk across the street to Terminal Sur to get to southern Chile.
Otherwise, why are they seen entering the bus terminal from the south side, when the main entrance is on the north side.   :umn:

Thank you! I looked it up and I think it was Louie.

Looks like they upgraded the TVs, but with trapezoidal blue-and-yellow number signs, alternating dark and light grey trellised roof, red banner by the side... it's a good match for the first bus at least!

More bus station madness... We still haven't figured it out yet have we?

Jody/Shannon are at the Alameda Terminal... But we also see Louie/Michael at the Pajaritos Terminal. They got magically bunched together by editing!

Jet/Cord arriving at Valparaiso says, "I see the green team!" Does that also mean they took a different bus from a different terminal? Don't have a shot of them at either Alameda or Pajaritos, the shots we have are all of the Airport Terminal.

Confusing enough?

I might be able to help a little (or make it worse  :lol:). In JeJo's cab we see them approaching an overpass. The only one that matches is halfway between the bus terminal and Wulff castle, in the opposite direction from Villaseca. Kmz attached; the thing in the median is a Valpo art logo.

OK, here's as much as I could get from the footage! Tried to account individually for each team. Note that the journey from Alameda is 20min longer than from Pajaritos.

12.15pm from Pajaritos
Dana/Adrian, Jeff/Jordan, Brent/Caite, Monique/Shawne
(Allie is standing next to the 12.15pm bus when Brent/Caite get on, not sure why they missed it?)

12.20pm from Pajaritos
Steve/Allie, Carol/Brandy
(Dan/Jordan not shown at Pajaritos, but arrive in Valparaiso together with Carol/Brandy)
(Joe/Heidi not shown at Pajaritos, but at Valparaiso are shown between Steve/Allie and Carol/Brandy)

From Pajaritos, first bus after 12.20pm
Michael/Louie

From Alameda
Jody/Shannon

Unknown
Jet/Cord, arrive in Valparaiso right after Jody/Shannon
(They say "I see the green team, they're ahead of us," which suggests they took a different bus?)

Anyone likes the fact that the 1/2 gay brother team got their karma when they lost the brush?

So much so for digging at Caite. :res:

I noted this in the episode discussion thread, but there's a bit of irony when Phil notes that Valparaiso is the "San Fran of South America", and the final destination city is in fact San Fran.

I know. I spot the little things like that.

This is from a bus discussion over in the Pickem thread:
The shuttle bus (left) matches the photo of the G shuttle that WP found. The Flyaway bus (right) was a bit confusing at first: Flyaway busses are uniformly blue. But the wiki article mentions that they sometimes roll other stock (and you can see part of a Flyaway placard in the window) so...that checks out.
The editing of the journeys to LAX seems straightforward except for Team OK. First we see them running south on Beaudry approaching 2nd with the Pious bros. Then they're at 5th and Grand next to GB Harb and Sons asking someone for a bus station (??). They're directed east on 5th: the Pershing metro stop is nearby, but that's about it. Next they're on Flower between 5th and 6th, crossing the street to Maguire Gardens: backtracking. Then they disappear, only to reappear at LAX (supposedly) with the G shuttle teams.

My  :2cents: : The 3/8 split on airplane seats was a waste. Even if a team misses the first flight (ignoring the actual mechanical troubles), they're still with the "pack."
At the other end of the scale, an 8/3 split would eliminate some of the drama (we've already seen the editors go to great lengths to disguise the fact that a particular team is an obvious goner). Ideally? 6/5 or 7/4 IMO.

I believe this is the first time all of the teams were on the same flight(s) out of LAX and into the first city of the first leg. I suspect the first three teams were concerned about the time needed to make the connecting flight at DFW with the mechanical delay ay LAX, and the reasoning seems to have been along the lines of "better the devil you know than the Devil

Second, teams have no way of knowing what they will encounter once they get to that first clue box in the first country or how the teams might be stratified with the tasks and route makers for the leg. So from that perspective it made a lot of sense to me for those first three teams to switch to the other flight.

I'll bet that TPTB were stunned to see the top three teams make this choice, but it was a rational option under the circumstances.  Those three teams certainly did not want to be the last three teams arriving at the airport in Santiago.

We originally had information that Leg 1 was going to be in Canada, back when filming had just started right?

The ironic thing is that we have Leg 1's prize as a trip to Canada. :neener:
