the U-Turned team is a co-ed in blue
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

The hair of the female is brown, so I'm guessing it's Steve & Allie or Joe & Heidi

The person on the left doesn't have much hair, and the one on the right has dark hair?

After reading the timeline, and the possible teams eliminated, I'm sure the team in the u-turn picture is definetly joe and heidi which means they are most likely eliminated. :ascared It's no surprise considering they are a pretty strong team.

Looks more like Joe and Heidi to me.  The woman's face is more oval and that's more in line with Heidi.  Allie's face is rounder.

Edit: Plus if you look at the woman, she's leaning toward the other person.  It matches with Joe and Heidi's picture on CBS's website.

Wiki can be updated by anyone, we don't trust it here. But :welcome:

I'll agree, thanks to puddin's screencaps, that it's probably Joe & Heidi.

In the insider videos for the first three episodes, there has always been at least one video where Louie & Michael and/or Dan & Jordan have bashed Joe.  (They seem to be as obsessed with Joe as Lynn & Alex and Susan & Patrick were about Rob & Amber.)

This insider video from episode 3 is probably the most telling one:

Speaking of the screencaps:

THANK YOU PUDDIN!!! :hearts:

I was hoping someone would vidcap and enhance, because I was pretty sure we'd get something to work with.

Thanks, Puddin!

The team photos on the CBS website have always been used by the teams for the U-Turn and the Yield since they were introduced.

While the U-Turn may or may not cause an elimination (some teams have managed to escape), the fact that we have a different team doing the speed bump makes this more interesting.

Well... It seems like there is a general task that is an assault course...

Ooh. One of the new insider videos has Dan and Jordan talking about U-turning Joe and Heidi the first chance they get. And Carol and Brandy were also offended. Makes it sure sound like Joe and Heidi are U-turned next.

I'll bet that Joe and Heidi (if they are indeed) escape the Blind U-Turn ala Nicholas and Donald.

I have to agree about the picture being Joe & Heidi.

Oh, and what a shame! Jet & Cord will probably have to take off their cowboy hats when they get into uniform.  :lol: How disappointing, he even bungeed with it! :'(

I have been rethinking transportation from Hamburg to Lille. It can be done by train, which is good since the driving distance is 356 miles. Here is the best schedule:
     
Train 515    5:38AM (note - there is an earlier train at 523am but there wold be no little gain from taking it)
Hamburg Hbf
9:46AM
Koeln Hbf,
4hr 8min    
     
Thalys9428    10:44AM
Koeln Hbf,
12:32PM
Bruxelles Midi,
1hr 48min    

Train9828    12:49PM
Bruxelles Midi,
1:23PM
Lille
0hr 34min

There are other trains, but they tend to have outlandish out-of-the-way routes and much longer transit times.

The above suggests that maybe teams flew from Hamburg to Lille. That is a reasonable option. Here are the schedules:

AF3231 HAM LYS 0610 0815 via Lyon
AF7813 LYS LIL   0845 0955

AF3231 HAM CDG 0710 0845
AF7813 CDG XDB (this is really a train connection from CDG to the train station at Lille airport) 1027 1128

AF3233 HAM LYS 1220 1405
AF7815 LYS LIL   1530 1645

AF3235 HAM LYS 1745 1930
AF7817 LYS LIL   1955 2110

Have we considered airplane from Hamburg to Paris and then TGV to Lille?

If they took the train, shame on TPTB for bypassing Belgium.

If Joe & Heidi are the targets, it's most likely either because Joe & Heidi helped Carol & Brandy at the expense of the other teams in episode 2 (Dan & Jordan and Louie & Michael) or because Joe & Heidi chose to align with Steve & Allie last time (Carol & Brandy).

 :duno:  Just going to put my 2 cents in, and say that the plane is a German Fokker Triplane, same type used by Baron von Richthofen (Red Baron).  He was shot down near Amiens, France. That's about it.  This trench could be anywhere, but it does look too new and shiny, kind of like a movie set or theme park...  hmmmmm   :res:  OK, enough with the spreculation.  Can't really spoil trees and dirt.  :snicker:

I think that assault course is a detour actually: It looks like right after they finish the assault course, then the U-Turn appears. But I can't find any assault courses in France...
