My DVR listing, of TAR this AM, also indicated the a team member threatens to quit the race!  I don't remember the exact wording.  I will look it up tonight and post.

It sounds like something similar to the RB in leg 3 of season 7. I have to lean towards thinking it is Nat and Kat. We know this is a NEL so it could be them...

I think it's Nick or Vicki, actually, who threatens to.

I agree with Levi Rinno -- I actually think either Nick or Vicki threatens to quit.  Maybe this is why they fall so far behind in their last leg (which we know is in South Korea).

Peach and I must have gotten it at the same time, and I type slower.

And from the promo that aired during NCIS:LA, the food that causes the "violent illness" looks like sushi....but I thought that was Japanese. Is there a Chinese equivalent? I don't eat the stuff so I really do not know.

Nothing equivalent to sushi in China.

So this will be a NEL, correct? Has that been confirmed or is it just pretty much logic since you can't really do an NEL at the second-to-last leg?

I think it is most likely to be a NEL. Unless they follow TAR 9, and have three teams race in the penultimate leg, making that a NEL, though it is unlikely.  :snicker:

No, it's unfortunately Jill & Thomas.  Nick & Vicki go out in fourth.

The one who wants  to quit has to be Nick he is always complaining for something and when something goes wrong usually accuses Vicky. I will be glad to see them go, although Tomas is equally annoying with his condescending manner towards Jill, just because he has a higher education than her.

Actually, with the yelling that Nick was doing in the promo, maybe Vicky threatens to quit if Nick doesn't straighten up!

Whichever one wants to quit is probably the one who can't eat whatever it is. They may take the 4hr penalty.

We don't know that it's a RB though, I thought. It could be half of a Detour, or a general task.

I wasn't saying it was a RB although it seems like the most likely thing. It could be any task.

The type of task is important as the length of the penalty for quitting a task is different for each type. That it took until the last couple of seasons to learn there was a penalty for a general task, and that in fact, the quitting a detour is still 24 hours, was one of the surprises of the recent editions of TAR.

Well, the penalty for a general task was a surprise.  However, I remember the 24-hour penalty for the Detour -- Nancy & Emily broke a rule in the first season by taking a bus to the Pit Stop instead of looking for the key to the car (in effect, quitting the Detour) and thus got the 24-hour penalty there.

When I suggested that Nick & Vicki fall so far behind because one of them threatens to quit, I was thinking that the task was a Roadblock and that the person who did the Roadblock (most likely Vicki) actually did quit and took the penalty as a result.
