I actually think that a Double U-Turn is a good element to the game. Rather than just having one poor team do two Detours leaving them little hope to catch up, it's good to have two teams battling it out. At least one of the two teams still has some hope and motivation to catch up. So I can't wait to see how this new twist plays out! Hee.

Great stuff, Jeesan! Here's some good info on the Sadar Ghat area: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sadarghat

Comparing these two pics it looks like N/K are definitely around the Sadarghat terminal:

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 have a 46" HDTV so that helped a lot in seeing the small black box inside the LARGE black arrow.  Plus, I freeze framed it to really check.  Otherwise, I can see how the little box for the 1 might be missed.

Here's the bottom line on the U-turn business: we know that Chad and Stephanie get U-turned because we know that if someone is eliminated this time it is them.

I agree -- Brook & Claire and Chad & Stephanie get the U-Turn with either Chad & Stephanie going out or it being an NEL.

I've kinda always lurked here and find it amazing how you all can find all this stuff! With a double U-Turn though I kind of think it's going to be a double leg instead of a NEL.

keep up the good work because it's fantastic!

Won't be a double leg; Phil stated there would be 12 legs on this Race at the start line, and CBS has already confirmed the finale is one hour on December 12th, with regular length episodes each Sunday until then.

There's no room for a double-length (or uber) leg this time.

I can't quite figure how that loom like machine and the drinking task go together. I know they do because Chad is drinking in front of the device. Because it is in Bangladesh I have to wonder if that task has something to do with jute, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jute#History, what do you think?

Also the teams seen on the boats are the ones doing that task which probably means those cans Chad is carrying goes with it too. There seem to be a lot of steps to that task that I cannot seem to connect.

Time consuming detour choices with a U-Turn totally makes sense; having such detour tasks with two teams U-Turned makes even more sense.

Re: U-Turn photos....

-Nick does wear a white muscle shirt (aka wifebeater) in the first episode during their interview, plus on the photo, it looks like a tattooed arm on the right side of what would be Vicki.
-Brook & Claire both have pink shirts on, sans Claire's denim jacket.
-Nat & Kat are only seen in scrubs, so I don't know how they would handle that unless they use the cast photo from CBS.
-Chad doesn't have a pink shirt on during the first episode interviews, it was a darker blue.

(Yes, I do tape TAR onto dvds  :lol: )


Who U-Turns who....could we all be over-analyzing the event? We know that B/C & N/K do hang out together like BFFs. That leaves the three other teams to possibly buddy-up and/or conspire. J/T dislike C/S, so J/T could commiserate with N/V where N/V would tell them how they dislike B/C, and vice-versa with J/T talking about C/S. (C/S would be odd-man-out since they're probably still on a high from their engagement and not interested in what others are doing.) So both J/T and N/V could make a pact, and possibly form an alliance in Bangladesh(?), to U-Turn their own hated teams by whoever gets there first.

Looks like it could be the one made from Tok Doi (sour yogurt)?? It has the same light color.

Well, I guess no redemption arc for Chad & Stephanie.  The way they finally revealed that Stephanie can seemingly be just as bad as he is (edited to be) must mean an ouster's on their way.  They basically go out the way they came in.

I think the Roadblock might involve something related to building a bike, something Chad's taunting Nat over.

Quick thoughts on the promo:

The rickshaw assembling is the RB; C/S, B/C, and N/K are there at the same time. The title quote must go here.

The brick carrying and laying is part of the detour. This looks like the typical really hard detour choice that is on an U-turn detour and would otherwise not be chosen.

The drinking thing may be the other detour choice, Chad Brooke and Kat are doing it. Nat and Kat turning that wheel is part of the process of making the drink. It looks like they are riding those little boats out to the drink making task and the task itself may be on one of those large ferries they are climbing into.

Why are B/C seen doing the drinking and the carrying? Confirmation that they are U-turned?

Any thoughts on all that info?

Interesting find, florida. How does this fit in with whatever they are rolling out and/or those metal cans?

Don't know what it's made with, but could it be something to do with sugar cane? There is a Bangladesh Sugarcane Research Institute...

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

So the drink task is the preferred choice but some are forced to do the bricks. B/C and C/S are seen doing both so they either switch or are U-turned, or both. With Chad's quote I would guess that they have been U-turned.
