???  They were seen looking for a flight to Bangladesh...the ep 8 leg would be over at that time, right? And yes, we know they finished 5th in Russia leg 2.

So if Jill/Thomas weren't exaggerating to the guy in Muscat airport (they told him they'd lose if they couldn't get a flight to Bangladesh within 8 hours), does this mean they came in 2nd to last in the 2nd Russian leg? Or am I simplifying things?

According to my speculation they may finish in the bottom half in episode 7. However there is a whole leg between that one and the flight to Bangladesh.

A ring-centric episode tonight.  Any chance the ring Chad gets repelling is the same one used in the proposal?  It would be odd to have bunching after the Roadblock.

Nope. But I wish Chad's gonna give the ring to Steph, making Steph having 2 rings and get proposed times two! :lol:

I see, the ring is in connection in Aladdin's story. I don't have to discuss it here, just google those info. :lol:

We have nothing on a detour unless it is the Bedouin task...so that is my vote. Tea or____?? ??? There is the person with the thing on their head, :lol:

Think the cap of Nick and Vick running is to the Detour maybe...

SO I think the Riyad Park shot is an HOO for Route info at the climb the stairs to the WatchTower.

Detour is Bedouin.

RB is Rapelling.

And PitStop will be with the goats. :funny:

Anybody think differently??

WHat do y'all think causes the police to come to B/C??

As I speculated earlier in the thread, I think it is speeding. Remember when Terence and Sarah sped in TAR 13 and got a penalty? Maybe they will too.

New to RFF:  Hi all!! 
In the pic of J/T in the car with her wearing the harness, I think it has to be after the rappelling.  Check out the caps for when she takes off following the guide in the blue shirt to start the "ra-pal" she is not wearing the harness. This makes me think they are in a hurry to catch up after she is done and just doesn't bother taking off all the gear.

That's a interesting idea I hadn't thought of. That may be what happens, btw:  :bigwelcome

So with Gary/Mallory starting at 8am and telling the ES teams that the leg took 16h, I suppose they checked in sometime around midnight? Poor Phil missing his flight, I wonder if he made the 1.25am departure to Mumbai?
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Add to that, the fact that the first team was released from the pit stop in St. Petersburg at 1 a.m. the previous day, and it's a very long leg (time zone shift as well.)

Speaking of oversleeping, I just recalled in Season 11, Charla & Mirna overslept in Leg 12, because of a broken alarm.
TARAS DVD SOON PLEASE!
