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.

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.


but the promo days that "Guess what Brent and Caite do to Carol and Brandy"



We could use the regular U-Turn because we still have our team picture so we still could U-Turn a team if we beat Tammy & Victor to it.

But, a BIG question is.... does Michael & Louie know that they are allowed to use the regular U-Turn?

Yeah a Phil never (in this season of Luke's) mentioned a limit on once a team uses the U-Turn they can't use it again.  We have see for example that they have modified the rules for certain things.  Such as teams being allowed the Fast FOrward twice in a season if they did the first (or 2nd) teamed with another team.

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

Luke (TAR14) has confirmed that you can.  The key is that in order to use the U-Turn a team has to place their "Courtesy Of" picture on the sign.  Once you've done that you can't do it again.  But for the Blind U-Turn, you don't put your own picture up, so you still have it to use on a regular U-Turn if you want.

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.

Well, we'll never know exactly who, but I searched the IP address. The country? Poland. The city? Warsaw. :lol3:

Probably just someone reading the spoilers and speculating. I wouldn't worry about it.

Yeah it's because of the Academy of Country Music Awards! Sheesh if u check the CBS schedule, I'd rather TAR take the timeslot of 60 minutes.  :neener:
TAR 17:
Brook/Claire, Nat/Kat, Jill/Thomas

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

I hate 60 minutes. Wrapped up in a nutshell, it's a bunch of news stories that are too lame to be covered on the regular news, and Andy Rooney covering some junk that is really boring, repetitive and is about price saving.

Example: "I went to the Super Bowl and it cost me $500, $20 more than the years before. etc..." (Well, he didn't say that exactly, it's along the gist of it.)

And, it doesn't make sense for them to say the quote as I said earlier: Why would the detectives, who want to U-turn Carol and Brandy anyways, get angry at Brent and Caite for U-turning Carol and Brandy. (It just doesn't make sense!)

Here's how it will play out (note: I made everything up but tasks based on spoilers....

Teams leave pit stop in Penang, Malaysia, and are told to take the train to Singapore. During the train ride, the lesbians do something that pisses of the cops, which makes them upset. They form a loose alliance with Brent & Caite, and makes them promise to do the dirty on the lesbians (as in u-turn them).

In Singapore, teams travel to their first route marker (Singapore Flyer?) and pick up their first clue. There is a fast-forward and a detour clue. Dan & Jordan and the cops go for the fast-forward. The cops loses, and have to return and do the detour.

Jet and Cord and Brent & Caite do the drums thing... while Carol & Brandy sell ice cream. Even though it's lunch time, Carol & Brandy have trouble selling ice-cream. To make things worse for them, the cops show up. Brent & Caite finish, and true to their word, U-turn the lesbians.

Jet & Cord have problems finding a taxi. The lesbians accost a small girl, and makes her buy an ice-cream. Job done, they travel via taxi to the U-turn sign. They are U-turned and have to go back and do the drums thing.

Dan & Jordan finish first, and check as team number one.  :jumpy: Brent out muscles everyone at the shipyard roadblock, and they are team number two, but Brent can't find his team's fanny pack (we ought to have one by now) and says the title. Jet & Cord overtakes them and they check in as team number two! Brent & Caite barely outraces the cops for third place, and Louie & Mike praise them to high heaven for the U-turn.

We cut to Carol and Brandy and they are thus the last team to arrive.

I am under 40, but I do read the daily news, watch BBC quite frequently, as well as local news. And unfortunately 60 minutes has the higher rating. :(

OK, so you are Les Moonves, head of CBS. Here is the ratings information for the season beginning Sept. 2009 you have to consider:

"60 Minutes" - ranked No. 9 in the Nielsen ratings, with an average audience each week of 15.7 million

"The Amazing Race" 15 and 16 - there was a break of about 3 months but for the Sunday nights that a season was active, my memory says the average weekly audience have been between 9 million and 10 million.

Now, would you bump or otherwise take away from a consistent top-rated and profitable show for only the past 42 years to favor a very good show with 8.5 years of moderate ratings? No business executive would (unless he knew that Andy rooney would be retiring and taking the franchise with him).

Could someone please watch for a new Twitter promo from CBS??

The same one is up:

Quote
AmazingRace_CBS    Tempers flare when racers place a target on 1 team's back + feuds come 2 a head when a U-turn comes into play! Preview http://bit.ly/aPbEop


But last week we got the old one followed by a new one too!

I can do the screencaps once I finally get home, IF there should be one!! :jumpy:
