always there are some dumb people who took information and post there, but still thanks to people like you to report

a sidenote, the page was reverted back to it's original page
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! :)

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.

I think this leg will redeem Singapore for it's previous disaster (S3 if I am right). Don't get me wrong I love Singapore...I actually am dying to visit the place again. Anyway, I shall keep my eyes open for a lion dance, ziplining, and the SINGAPORE FLYER!!! Gosh, judging from the promo this is gonna be one heck of a leg.

As one of my favorite TV shows once quoted: THE NOOSE IS TIGHTENING!!

For the Road Block, it looks like Brent is counting links in the chain.

And when you see Mike and Louie selling ice cream, the white box Louie was carrying can be seen on the ground near the cart.  And it looks like Michael is carrying the umbrella.

Hong Lim Park. :lol:

(Regarding the hint: OB markers, or out-of-bound markers, refer to the implicit limits set by the government on civil society, which came to a head in Singaporean society when Speakers' Corner was introduced in Hong Lim Park in 2000. Somehow it didn't sound so complicated in my head...)

off topic a bit here, the wikipedia page for the amazing race 16 is now flagged as protected page, it was being placed by one of the senior admin by the consultation of me seeing many of the massive spams going on these days, so anyone whose account is created less then 4 days will not be able to edit, also IP addresses will be logged.

Now back to topic

Evan, you were on the right track with the community centre! :lol:



Note that these shots were not taken at the shipyards in Ulu Pandan, but outside the Tanjong Pagar train station. Brent and Caite are probably looking for a taxi at the junction of Cantonment Link and Keppel Rd.



For Peach: the exact location this shot was taken at the junction of Queen St and Bencoolen Link Albert St.



We already knew that teams were here, but with the view in this confessional we can now confirm it as the Pit Stop: the rooftop of the Marina Barrage.

Thanks for the great map, Neobie.  That puts the Detour/U-Turn into perspective.

And Michael wouldn't make sense for the title because:
1. Once you've used the U-turn, you can't use it again. Why would Michael/Louis be angry that someone beat them to a U-turn they can't use?
2. Michael and Louis WANTED to U-turn Carol and Brandy, thus it doesn't make sense for them to say the title.

Given that both Brent/Caite and Michael/Louie were seen at the Singapore Flyer, could we presume that this is their very first destination of the race, and where they get their Detour clue? The Flyer is roughly equidistant between the two options: 2.4km from Bugis Village, and 2.6km from Hong Lim Park.

Getting a taxi from Ulu Pandan would be a problem. :lol: Sad that there isn't much of a chance to showcase the public transport, yet again! (They're paranoid about spoilers, aren't they? Not that it stopped all the information we got from leaking out!)

I believe there are three locations that remain unidentified, all taken from inside taxis. Good luck! :tup:

Sorry, brain fart! The junction of Queen and Albert Sts (the next lane down from Bencoolen Link), on the west side of Fu Lu Shou.

Sentosa seems like a redundant add-on. Anything else you presume they'd be doing there?

kwando131:
You are correct that once a regular U-turn is used a team cannot use another REGULAR U-turn. however, you have forgotten from AR14 that a Blind U-turn lets a team still use a regular U-turn. Margie/Luke would have done so if they had beaten Victor/Tammy to the U-Turn. so Michael was entirely justified in being miffed.

I'm pretty sure that you aren't allowed to use the U-turn again even if it is a blind one...
