Time for Jet at the detour!! :hearts:




Looks like 930 in the morning to me........

Then how could Jordan perform FF around 11:42am, there are 2 hours..

Is it possible with traveling through different time zones they might not have changed the time on their watch.

I doubt it. I've been to both Malaysia and Singapore and they don't have different time zones. I live in the Philippines so I know if there's changes in time zone in those places.

you are right actually, however i think that the time was america's timing, this is purely guess, maybe Luke can shed some light on this issue

also in case people don't know, singapore and malaysia have a slight timezone of 30 mins, this was told by my relatives who are malaysia, also my dad has confirmed this, but who cares about that half hour, LOL

It depends on which part of Malaysia, really. Johor Bahru in Malaysia doesn't have a different timezone from Singapore. :lol:

No . . .  I meant Jet/Cord may not have changed the time on their watch possibly for several days.  
9:30 AM Seychelles = 1:30 PM Singapore

Anyway, was just a thought.

All of you are right, but let me clear this up a little bit for those who are confused!

Malaysia has a much larger longitudinal range than Singapore, which means the time when the sun appears directly overhead varies. The sun is overhead in Singapore about 50min after Kota Kinabalu, and 15min before Penang. This is what Evan means when he says there is a time difference between Malaysia and Singapore.

Clock-wise, though, both countries (including East Malaysia) are in the +8 GMT time-zone. This means Jet/Cord wouldn't have to change the times on their watches going between Penang and Singapore. And they've been in Penang for two days now, surely they would have changed their times, especially after having to catch a train?

I am not confident about the times I deduced from the shadows, would an expert step in to help please? :lol: Dan/Jordan could have been held back by the crazily stringent Singaporean safety standards and briefings, but I'm not sure how long those would take. The train from Malaysia couldn't have arrived before 8.10am, so I'd say the drumming is one of the earlier tasks in the leg.

(So Michael/Louie U-Turn themselves? :snicker:)

Travel Time

Because the departure times of planes & trains are based on local time (the time at the airport/station), I suspect racers will change their watches every time they change locations.  Racers would not want to be late for a plane or train.

I'm thinking that the "couple in red" in several of the sightings must have been Steve and Allie running decoy? ???

Help this ole geezer out, please.  Do we have concrete evidence that Dan and Jordan are doing a Fast Forward?  Have we actually seen a green card somewhere?  Or, is this just someone's speculation that there is a FF this ep?

There is a FF, G-man.

Discussion was based on the fact that it is an extra task that we see ONLY Dan and Jordan doing, AND they both are doing it, and we already have the RB.

No FF card seen in the promos yet though.

Angels? :lol3:(I have no idea!)

I'm getting a very early time for Louie at Bugis, perhaps even before the 9.30am Jet/Cord are at Hong Lim Park. Are you guys able to figure this out?

The sun is coming from the bottom right side of this pictures provided.  The shadows in the ferris wheel car are somewhat confusing, so I am basing this on the shadows coming from the trees next to the river.  Then looking at the yellow time lines provided in Neobie's post, I'm guess it is about 10 am.

Hi Peach!  Can you put up any caps that are just like the above shot?

I might be able to sort out some background issues if I see some motion.    :waves:

I just need shots from the same clip.  To be clear, just the frames that are in the same clip that the cameraman shot while standing there in the flyer shooting the brothers as they stood there talking.

Brent and Caite have red jackets, though. Maybe they just took them off at the Detour.

So the conclusion is...Dan & Jordan are working on the Fast Forward just about 15 minutes before Louie & Michael are working on the Detour.
