1. Allowing Roberson to do the final flag ROADBLOCK when Marc could have done it much quicker (ARA2- finale). This got them eliminated.

Marc already hit his roadblock count of 6 before reaching the final leg, so it wasn't dumb...

Nope it was still kinda dumb, because throughout the entire race both of them took turns alternatively to take Roadblocks without thinking who's a better person doing it. It so happened that Marc started off first... and the Tokyo Roadblock already showed how mentally-challenged he was...

And they didn't get eliminated. It was the final leg, and they just ended up in 3rd... which was their worst placing throughout the race. But it was a good way to drag them down.

At least the title quote makes more sense now (if BreCat U-Turned CarBra)
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

Do you think Carol & Brandy are U-turned?

If Carol & Brandy are going to be eliminated because that clueless little girl I'm going to be seriously pissed  :'(

Carol and Brandy are driving by Istana Park... if I remember correctly, is along Orchard Road. Where Dan & Jordan are at is the Singapore Flyer, second largest and longest Ferris Wheel in the world. If Jordan is the one I see (can't tell them really apart), he's going to be doing major peeing in his pants.

Ha. Game over! That was fast. Note the fencing.



No idea what there is to do at Istana Park though. Erm... See the President?

It's still along Orchard Road, it's bounded by Orchard Road, Penang Road, Penang Lane,  Buyong Road. They just passed by it, I've no idea what they might be doing there (they're in a taxi)

Redskooky, this shot is taken from inside Istana Park.



The Singapore Flyer is still the largest in the world, I think. Although Singaporeans will definitely have a snicker when they see people climbing outside the Flyer... Remember this? (Inside joke...)

This looks interesting...

Quote
The centrepiece of the park is the 26 metre high Festival Arch rising out of a shallow reflecting pool. The design of the stainless steel and concrete structure was inspired by the gateposts and railings at the Istana's entrance. The Festival Arch forms the gateway to Singapore's Civic District, the cultural and historic heart of the city. The arch enhances the visual link across Orchard Road.

The park has a large shallow reflecting pool, the first of its kind in Singapore. Coconut palms at the adjoining Palm Pools reinforces the impression of the Istana Park as a tropical oasis in the heart of Orchard Road.

Fronting the main gate of the Istana, the park provides a vantage point for visitors keen to view the monthly changing of guards’ ceremony at the Istana entrance. In the evenings, the park is transformed into an "oasis of light". The park is one of the venues identified for enhanced lighting under the Urban Redevelopment Authority's (URA) lighting master plan.

Musical and cultural performances at the Istana Park are featured on the first Sunday of every month.

There is a restaurant called Giraffe Restaurant at Istana Park which is available to all for dining. Everyone can also participate/join in the concerts and performances held.

Yah. It's one of Carol and Brandy's quotes that refer to the "dumbies".

If my calculations are correct (using the shadows of the two trees by the bay), this shot was taken at around 11.42am, 16 Dec 2009.



Note: Google Earth doesn't automatically show the Flyer. Shift the timeline a little bit to get the most updated imagery.

It is; compare the bridge in the background of the cap with this photo. It may be B-roll stuff, but who knows? Maybe they have to ride the funicular up to the top to receive the route info.

I cant help but think the reason that Carol and Brandy are so mad is not that they have just been U-turned, but that Brent an Katie should have U-turned someone else. Like the cowboys.

Hence why the Dumb comment.  I am guessing that the Cowboys were behind them both and if Carol and Brandy were there first they would have U-turned the stronger team.

Call it familiarity, call it a hunch, call it a stab in the dark...

East Coast Parkway heading west, outside Meyer Road. Our teams are taking a taxi out of the airport.

(No public transportation disappointment.)

I think Carol or Brandy (can't remember which one) has called Catie dumb numerous times. So I assume that whatever the reason for thier down fall they will be upset Catie and Brent lasted longer then they did.

Speculation:

If there's a U=Turn involved as to Carol-Brandy and Brent-Caite, it may be that the Cowboys were already ahead.  I have the impression that Singapore may be like Penang for the "Boys in the hats.

The Singapore Flyer might be the Fast Forward.  Or were other teams spotted there as well?
