If you can't do a RB, it is a 4 hour penalty....

EEK...That's a long time...And that is the weirdest looking lasso I have seen with that brass ring on it..Did it look like Jeff lassoed the steer OK? Which end is doing the roping?

Did any team lasso the steer the right way besides the cowboys?   :lol3:

Can anyone do a better translation please??



I'm not fluent in Spanish, but I think where it says, "stay Fortin Chacabuco" the word "estancia" should be translated as "Ranch" rather than "stay." (It can have both meanings, as well as "visit" or even "stanza.")


And, I think the metal ring on the lasso is just to make it easier.  It would normally just be a rope loop, which might tighten up if not handled properly, and make it harder.

I think Jeff got it, but I don't know if he still has to tighten the loop, and then it might fall off before he completes the task.

OKOK, I mean..what is that silly ring? Don't you use the BIG end of the lasso to rope with? That pix just makes no sense as far as lassoing that rope AROUND the horns! :groan:

Thanks chills, that makes MUCH more sense!

Diane, Slowhatch posted a guide to roping upstream, if you want to see how it is done...

Here's a lasso, with a rope ring.  The metal ring replaces that part.  Even this rope loop is fixed, so it doesn't tighten up.




PS- Any way you look at it, Jet or Cord should have no trouble with this roadblock.

Thx Chill....It just looks weird to me..like does that ring need to go around the horn? I went to those videos from Slowhatch and all i know now is where to buy a dummy head!LOL
YES....This whole Leg is geared for the cowboys....Hmmmmmmmmmm (:;)

The ring itself would not go around or on the horn per se.  Imagine a slip knot, the ring is the small loop that  the length of rope goes through to make the bigger loop that is used to "hook" the horn. Sliding the length of the rope through the ring controls the size of the loop, pulling the slack out tightens it up.

Does that make sense?

Ahhhh, YESSSSSSSS :yess:......so it doesn't look good for Jeff then..like he's just hooked the ring and lost the loop of the circled lasso??? :'(

No, I agree with Chill.  Although the picture might be a bit deceiving, it looks like Jeff does have it, he just needs to carefully pull the slack out of the rope....unless they have to "rope" both horns, which would be much harder  :duno:

This is interesting....if this is someone writing on the basis of seeing a couple of future episodes...the only reason I can think of for saying that would be if there was some sort of TBC...:duno: because I thought TBC's were extinct. Anyway, it can't be on the basis of this episode alone... And I thought reviewers were usually only given one episode at a time to review?? ???

But more likely, someone just got their wires crossed...we KNOW from the press releases that we have Germany first then France.

Strange...

Sunday's "Amazing Race" to acknowledge the Chile earthquake
By: Michael Schneider

 "The Amazing Race" host Phil Keoghan is taping a special opening to Sunday night's edition of "The Amazing Race," in which he'll acknowledge Friday night's massive earthquake in Chile.

The quake in Chile  -- measuring an incredible 8.8 on the Richter scale -- came, coincidentally, right as the country is enjoying some major publicity in the United States, thanks to "The Amazing Race."

Last Sunday's episode was entirely shot in Chile -- including stops in Santiago, Temuco and Puerto Varas. The seg ended with a Pit Stop located at Gruta de la Virgen in Puerto Varas. That's where this Sunday's episode will pick up as well.

According to CBS, the Emmy-winning series will now include a hastily-produced message at the start of Sunday's episode, as host Keoghan explains that the "Race" episodes were taped months ago. Keoghan will also direct viewers on where to find more information on how to help the people of Chile.

This isn't the first time "The Amazing Race" has had to acknowledge natural disasters that took place after filming. In 2005, the show ran a disclaimer before an episode that took place in Sri Lanka -- and filmed several weeks before the deadly 2004 tsunami struck that country.

No personal discussions please. We had enough about this in the other threads already.

Re Murtz...he knows everyone, just not sure he would spoil the team who goes like that...but yes, it is possible.

And the timing of J/J doing that show posted in the Media thread...seems somewhat unusual to me. But I don't kniow for sure who goes...only J/J amd the Wangs would be my 2 most likely, since they used the Mom's pic in the TV Guide blurb for next week. But that is a GUESS.
