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.
From what I remember:

General task = 2 hours
Roadblock = 4 hours
Detour = 24 hours

What about 30 min penalties for incidentals?

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.

Now that you say this, it's compatible with the witnesses reporting the 4th team being hours behind the leading teams.
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

Thanks for the promo everyone.

It looks more like Dim Sum time in the restaurant.

If it really is sushi, then it was completely ridiculous for production to have done that in Hong Kong.  If it is Dim Sum, then those responsible for the commercial should be hanged, drawn and quartered, for being such ignoramuses.

The eating task is the RB with Thomas, Nat, Claire, and Vicki all there at once. I think it is first, maybe before the island.

And Claire does not seem to be enjoying the food.

21 has Nat/Kat on the Star Ferry, not the Cheung Chau ferry. The Cheung Chau ferries are much wider.

This makes Star Ferry and the Central Piers the most visited attraction in all of TAR; it's been featured on six seasons! (TAR 2, TAR 11, TAR 17, TAR:A 2, TAR:A 3, TAR:I)

At the Roadblock, Claire, Thomas, and Nat performs it while their partners are entertaining the guests (or this is all compulsory and Brook decided to dance)?

Thai music, and sushi. Thanks CBS.

Junction of Hennessy and Johnston Rds, in Wan Chai.

And... the A11 airport bus arriving at Jardine House, Central. Looks like the same flight to me.

I like this theory too. This could be leading the to the crying scene?

Nothing else on Cheung Chau that isn't between the ferry terminal and Cheung Po Tsai Cave. Included the spoiler photo from during filming (A).

With another team getting off the airport bus with Nick/Vicki and the three other teams together at Cheung Chau, all teams must have necessarily got off the same flight. Not sure where Nick/Vicki are on Cheung Chau though.

I'm thinking based on caps 41-42, Thomas is eating supposedly Oyster(???) or any other shellfish-family dish and it's treated more  like sushi. Well, in Chinese banguet, there would be some exotic food like jellyfish and most of them are not considered dimsum.

Anyway, nice to meet you all in RFF!!!

Thanks for the information. I can see why it might be difficult to eat some of the more exotic dishes.

Nice to meet you too! Welcome to RFF!

The sun is on their left, at sunset (since they arrived at noon). Nat/Kat are travelling from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon.

Caps 20 and 21 are from the Star Ferry... 8,9,10 may be from Central Pier in Hong Kong.... 12, 13 and 14 are from some sort of outdoor market....

There is Dim Sum and Seafood!

I think Thomas is eating oysters while Claire is eating a boiled egg?  :duno:
I can't make out what is Nat eating!

But I'm sure Hong Kong has sushi too!


Maybe someone who gets ill after eating says the title!

12-14 are on Cheung Chau, just south of the ferry terminal. I was posting on RFF about my findings in Cheung Chau in the McDonald's you see in the background... :lol: 6-8 and 25-28 are also on Cheung Chau, refer to map above.

Here's a shot I took on that day, at pretty much the exact location:

I've looked around for a banquet hall. The only big hotel on Cheung Chau seems to be the Warwick, but the photos don't match. There's a large restaurant at Jardine House called Chiuchow Garden, but I can't get any recent photos because it underwent renovation this year.
