Not sure if this would help, would any of the experts be able to figure out the timings?
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Is it possible to have a fast forward on the same leg as a U-Turn?
because Dan & Jordan are the only ones seen on the Singapore Eye thing and they arent shown doing anything else in the clips (like zip lining or the other tasks)
maybe they draw a fast forward here and jet their way to final 3/the win
TAR16 Teams:
Dan & Jordan, Steve & Allie

Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains:
Parvati, Russel, Jerri, Colby

American Idol 9:
Lee, Crystal

The Flyer is definitely a f/f task (if the u-turn is indeed at istana park)

Louie & Mike are near a bus station where only SBS buses ply (red bus sign, other Singaporeans can u please help me read the bus sign and come back to me and I'll find the location?)

Jet & Cord are doing some lion dance drums, perhaps the other half of the detour?

The ice-cream task is in the Queen Street vicinity.

We have lots of tasks here:

Zipline... mega Zip in Sentosa...

Selling ice cream:: Michael and Louie and by spoilers Carol and Brandy

Carrying things?? We see Mike and Louie doing this in a plaza marked Queen? Where does this fit in??

U-turn clue  in Istana Park?

And something at the Marine place?? >>we only see one team member doing this although they are both suited up... >>RB??

And two teams drumming, the Cowboys and Brent/Caite>>Detour or route clue??

Pitstop at the Barrage by spoilers.... we think.

And then we show ONE  team doing ONE task at the flyer...both active so not a RB.... Not too hard to draw a conclusion is it?? :tup:

i believe so, and it seems to me that the detectives are early, normally queen st/bencoolen link area wont have so much people in the morning, the peak period of the day is about 10am, so accessing the timing, i guess will be before 10am

10 years ago?? the only place i could think of is the speakers corner
Going by geographical distance alone, it looks like the Detour will be Cold Treats or Hot Beats? (I'm sure you guys can come up with a better name...) The U-Turn at Istana Park is located somewhat between the two options. It's 1.7km/1.0mi from one, and 2.6km/1.6mi from the other. Neither is exactly walking distance, but pretty close in any case.

Singaporeans should know the location pretty well, it's been all over the news! (Ten years ago, at least...) Hint: "OB marker." :lol:

Looks like a styrofoam box to me. It might contain their ice cream.

I just opened a wikipedia page of The Amazing Race 16, and I was surprised when wikipedia, which I think is not accidentally update the team's position on the leg 9, I think wikipedia's can be updated by anyone, but I believe also that what they write is true, and they already know your position on leg 9 tomorrow.

unfortunately I do not understand how to insert screenshoot these pages, one is willing to tell me?

Here's the position!
Dan and Jordan: Finished first on this leg, by Fast Forward!
Jet and Cord: Finished second on this leg
Brent and Caite: Finished third on this leg
Louie and Michael: Finished fourth on this leg
Carol and Brandy: ELIMINATED! (U-turned by Brent and Caite!)

Dumb did us in
, Michael for the title!

Let us see next Sunday! :)

Detour: the Lion Dance drum things / selling ice cream

RB: that mine place where Brent is

Additional task: zipline

FF: scale the Singapore Flyer

U-Turn: Istana Park (according to everyone else)
TAR 17:
Brook/Claire, Nat/Kat, Jill/Thomas

TARA 4
Richard/Richard, Claire/Michelle, Dimple/Sunaina

Oh my gosh! I saw that too.

For the title thing, maybe it's because it was Brent and Caite and not Louie/Mike who U-Turned Carol/Brandy. Needless to say they beat them to the opportunity, hence the title.

Sidenote: I wonder who did that.
