Nat and Kat may have been sailing the waters near Sadarghat Port, but I think any port in the Buriganga River might apply too.

... and Nat and Kat have been discussing about the U-Turn in a cab... does this imply anything? I guess they are first and they don't use it, and they discuss about it. :duno: (Sorry for this added U-Turn discussion) :lol: nvm. :lol:

I also find the order of the caps interesting...sighting of the UTurn Clue box>>>change to Nat and Kat in the car>>>back to J/T arr at UTurn.

Hmmmm.

Here are caps on either side of the others I posted, in case they help.

I don't know if this is real or even important. There is flag on the back of one of the rickshaws in this picture in the lower right corner. Maybe they have to use them?


I saw that too, I figure its just the rickshaws that they are seen using. The race flag looks a little funny though...

B/C's bio pic is still the only on that has pink on the right as you are looking at it. However, I still think that the pink in the pic on the board looks to be towards the bottom right corner, this does not fit any of the bio pics. Thoughts?

In B/C's bio pic Brooke has a bright lime green backpack to the left of the shot. You would think with the angle we are seeing that at we could see that pack.  :duno:

I would suspect in the conditions of South Asia, that they mark the rickshaw the team is in, so the soundman and cameraman's rickshaw doesn't "lose" them.

I think the picture on the U-Turn board is Brook & Claire's from when they were still in Reno and hadn't left for the race yet.  I can barely see them wearing the same clothes from their pre-race interview.

But it seems to me that they use pics that don't have backpacks when it comes to U-Turns. ;)

**currently getting screenies of past U-Turns**

EDIT: Maybe they are using the same pics taken from the credits (I mean when the AR song plays and the names of the teams are shown)

Wrong tree, guys! They DO NOT use the CBS team pictures for the U-Turn. It's usually taken on the same day as the Opening Credit shots are filmed, but it's not a hard and fast rule.

The photos come from their pre-race interviews. Here's the match for Brent/Caite, in a pre-race interview from Episode 1.

Using Photoshop and the "Curves" magic, I have found the elusive first courtesy space.

Exactly where I said it was.  My good eye must have really benefited from the cataract surgery last month. :)

I still had TAR on my DVR, so I checked the coming attractions and the small box with a 1 is clearly visible just to the side of the large box with a 1.  Unfortunately, the small box is entirely within the black arrow and barely visible.  So 2 regular U-turns.  J/T > B/C, but I couldn't tell if or who N/V U-Turn.

Okay i need to go get a pair of specs or what cause i really don't see it. But whatever it is, i am sure all of you see it and 2 regular U-TURNs it is! :tup:

I don't know how to do screencaps, but I just went back and checked the credits.

The background of the quick Brooke and Claire pose is a pink tree behind Brooke. They're getting UTurned by Jill and Thomas.

The background behind Nat and Kat's title shot is OR monitors/equipment and it's grayish blue.

The background behind Chad and Stephanie's title shot is blue on blue sea/sky behind them.

Hey there everyone!

Hmm...posting here after a very long time and I usually don't visit the spoilers section but the TAR finally visited my country and the gracious peach asked me so how could I not!

Coming to the main point, you guys are gonna be so disappointed that I don't have much to add because I'm not a resident of Dhaka so I wont be that much help recognizing the locations. Shame on me :( But I do have a very good friend in Dhaka and I'll ask him to drop by and see if he can help!

Okay, the first shot looks like the place Gulistan. I think the places shown are around Gulistan Bazar and that shot where Brooke & Claire are asking a rickshawala is around Gulistan cinema hall. I'm not completely sure though. These are actually parts of the Old Dhaka or 'Puran Dhaka' as we call it. God bless them if they really went to Gulistan because its the HQ of pickpocketers!

And Cocoa you're absolutely right about the river. It has to be the Buriganga river and guessing from the quantity of launches and boats nearby, it must the Sadar Ghat.

About that marked rickshaw, yes it has to be marked if the teams are on it because there's no way of telling two rickshaws apart in a place like Gulistan. And I think there is a task where the teams has to use a rickshaw because you can't come to Bangladesh and not ride a rickshaw, just riding it in the main streets of Dhaka/Chittagong could be a task in itself! And I'm pretty sure there's gonna be no self driving cause an American driver is quiet unlikely to survive the streets of Bangladesh!

Thats all I can think of now! Sorry that I was a bit of a let‐down guys!
