It looks like they have to lift the plate and balance it on the pointed sticks placed around the arena barrier.

Here is a slide of photos with text from promo 2. It appears that Nick decieves Brooke\Claire and Michael\Kevin, but this could be a fabrication.

Number 37 has me confused.  If that's really Phil, why is he standing at the gorodki courts (roadblock)?   :groan:  We never see the host at a roadblock, let alone anywhere else but the pitstop during the race (unless if he is coming to tell the last place team that everyone else has finished and they have been eliminated).   :duno:

Oh, OK, must be recording his stand-up... intersting, showing a stand-up in with the previews.  LOL  :lol:

Well, now...I had expected the cap below to be near the church. But it's actually at Muchnoy bridge, quite a bit farther down the canal. (map and viewpoint) The only other church, if you continue down the canal, is the Sailor's Cathedral, and the names are not similar. ???
(And he seems to be headed in the opposite direction--away from the church/bus stop ???)

It's also possible that Nick didn't intentionally mislead Brook & Claire and Michael & Kevin, but Kevin mistakenly believes that Nick did so.  But I doubt Michael & Kevin are the ones going home, fortunately for them.

Good job on noticing that. I don't know what Nick is doing down there.

The teams are clearly seen at the Church of the Savior on Blood in several of those caps. How early in the leg do you guys think this is?

One interesting fact is that this site: http://www.sacred-destinations.com/russia/st-petersburg-church-of-savior-on-blood.htm lists the hours of the church as opening at 11am. If this clue is first they may have to wait. Almost all of the shots in that promo are from outside the church, so they may be there a while.

It looks like that Mike and Kevin confront Nick and Vicki there too.

You may be right, a lot of times the editors sort of magnify these little issues to get more viewers.

No, there are seven teams. If those you said are together and Chad/Stephanie were with Jill/ Thomas (as an example) who do Gary/Mallory go with?

However, there could be one in Oman as they usually do it when there are six teams.

New here, but didn't they do that when there were eight once before?

I think you may be right but the point is there has to be an even number and there are not this time.

With the Intersection talk and the multiple promos, one question comes to mind: where's Gary/Mallory?

I know they're likely to be eliminated here, but what if it's the opposite? What if they're ahead, either from a FF or just plain skill (and then get bunched in Oman and lose next leg). Did Phil explicitly state that the sheep head was the only FF this season?

I understand that  :tup:

My thinking was that every other team is in a promo but them, which I initially thought implied their boot (rather than Michael/Kevin who were heavily featured, or even Chad/Stephenie who had at least one clip) since the things that the previews build up aren't usually fatal.

But now I think that they aren't showing Gary/Mallory because they don't want to spoil the use of the FF. I'm pretty sure Meghan/Cheyne got ignored in the previews before they won their FF, as did Ken/Tina, so that it wouldn't be completely obvious they got it. Unlike in previous editions (15 and 8 come to mind, as does 16 I think), Phil didn't explicitly state that this was the only FF in the race, which suggests that there's another one attempted/completed somewhere.

Doesn't suggest a thing to me -- they could just be cutting the explanation they way they got rid of "a Road Block is a task that only one person can perform" and "a Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons".

I suppose it is possible that they force one team to do a FF in order to have the other six do an Intersection. However, this sort of conclusion seems to me to be the result of over-analyzation.
