What about what I thought earlier about jute? I can't see it being a juice though...

I can't see jute being a juice either. The preview showed what looked like canes/stalks being smashed through a rolling contraption (and it can't be bamboo!)

They are pressing sugar cane to get the juice, which is why Chad has the cans......they have to get a certain amount of juice. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if they are required to go multiple places to get multiple ingredients for the drink they have to prepare. All in those boats......shopping on the water.

I am going to assume the brick carry and stacking job is harder but much faster and all the teams do it. Since only C/S and B/C.........they do the U turn detour too.

I think the RB is to fix a rickshaw, so it can take you someplace. Jill/Thomas and Nick/Vick are seen riding in rickshaws with smiles, while Claire, Jill and Chad watch their partners "fix" rickshaws. I can see Nick finishing this first...since he is a motorcycle rider back home.

There's something that resembles an Argentine flag at the beginning of the promo, and I thought I saw a Brazilian flag behind Phil. This article may explain it: the area was in the grips of World Cup fever during June.

I remember the announcers talking about the electricity situation in Bangladesh during a game I was watching back in June.

There is also an Argentinian flag behind Nick and Vicki at the U-Turn, I thought it was a clue. :lol:

It is sugarcane juice! They use the rolling compressor to extract the juice out of the sugarcane. :)

It is definitely sugarcane juice, the mugs are similar to that used by Indian hawkers in Singapore, most of whom are either Tamil or Bengali descent, to sell sugarcane juice, and the contraption looks similar.

I was thinking along these same lines, don't forget that Nat and Kat do the sugar cane too.

It looks like they are getting the bricks off of the boats too, I wonder how far they have to walk for each trip back and forth. By the way Chad is acting it seems like they are doing the bricks as their "U-turn task."

Caps 45 and 46 are spliced to look like Nat is looking at C/S but I think these are actually from her doing the RB.

After reviewing episode seven and the preview on CBS.com, I'm even surer than ever that this might be Chad & Stephanie's final leg.

In the confessional that aired after they barely survived the second Russia leg, Stephanie's saying how far she and Chad have come, and many originally thought it was their elimination confessional in Oman, but later screencaps proved it may more than likely have been taped in Bangladesh.  I think that's true, because in that preview, Chad's wearing the same shirt on the course he was wearing in that Bangladesh confessional.  So's Stephanie.

Drinking sugarcane juice can't be good for a diabetic.

It looks like they collect the bricks from a boat and then dump the bricks into some type of conveyor system. I suspect they reload the bricks at the top of the conveyor system and transport them to the stacking area.

Are you sure she's not just dropping them?

That's why Kat is drinking it.

Actually, in one of the promotion shoots, Chad was wearing Brook & Clare-ish type of pink.

But the first picture is most likely Brook & Claire.  :word:

The producers probably made it so only one team member needs to drink (but two may do it to finish faster), like when they changed the task at the Swedish theme park because Big Easy wouldn't fit in a ride.
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Good catch! I checked and none of the other intro video shots are even close.

Or it's like the beer task last year where both have to technically do it, but one sip counts as participation.

Who's ready to bet?

Nat  & Kat decide not to U-turn
Jill & Thomas u-turned Brook & Claire
Nick & Vicki u-turned Chad & Stephanie
 
First team arrived at the pit stop is Nat & Kat
Last to pitstop : Chad & Stephanie
