This could be the most exciting finale ever. Most of the time we get 1 likeable team in the final. This time weve got 2, and NO ONE (well almost) wants a f/f team to lose again!!

PLEASE Brook and Claire <33333

I am so excited!! ARGH!!

If the roadblock limit is still used, Jill, Claire, and either Nat or Kat will do the final roadblock.  Nat and Kat are both at 5 due to the use of the fast forward earlier in the race.  I think that Jill and Claire being weaker then their partners yet having to do the roadblock could make a difference in the final outcome of the race.

I can't say I'd be unhappy with any of the remaining three winning. Maybe it's because I've known about this for a while that it gave me a chance to appriciate them equally as the race went on. I picked Thomas & Jill pre-show as the team that would win it, so despite my appriciation for an all female team winning this after so long, I still have to go with them. My next choice would be Nat & Kat. From past racing experiance and the promo, I see it going Thomas & Jill, Nat & Kat, Brook & Claire.

Quick analysis:
1. They are still pushing the FF team to win thing.
2. They focused mostly on the bungee jumping. Nat's fears are revealed.
3. It appears that BC and JT are in a taxi race to the finish, but who knows?

Brooke & Claire are flying in a Bell 206.  The location and direction suggest that they took off from Torrence Airport and are going to the joined bungee swing challenge.

<added later:  wrong bird, Slowhatch id'd it as a Eurocopter AS-350B2>

For this reason I Think N/k and B/C won't win...would be too obvious

However In the cab Nat is calling someone by phone (this remind me cara/jaime in the last leg)...probably their taxi driver doesn't know the location.....and this is no good... :(

Check out the new promo. There is a different copter in a different location. It could confirm your theory.

It seems impossible but I have a feeling that they are playing a 'Who wants to be a millionaire?' kind of game? Just maybe.  :duno:

Good spec.......

I was thinking it was a television studio or a movie set........just didnt get as detailed as you. So maybe the helicopters fly them from Long Beach to Century City or Burbank. ( you LA people know better than I do where the locations might be).....then a taxi to Beverly Hills to the finish line...........

I took what you said and did some light researching (heh) and Bob Hope (Burbank) Airport could be plausible. They did sign an agreement with Briles to Fly LA helicopters http://www.toflyla.com/ back in May 2010 and those helicopters have the same colorations as the one in the preview but I'm unsure if the colors of helicopters have anything to do with their respective companies. Briles also has an agreement with Van Nuys, but Bob Hope seems less busy and more inconspicuous.

If they fly helicopters into the port area, this company also has a listing in Hawthorne.

Fatal crash

Francis Gary Powers died in 1977 in an accident. He was 47 years old. He had been covering bush fires in Santa Barbara County. As he returned, his Bell Jet Ranger helicopter, registered N4TV, ran out of fuel and crashed in the Sepulveda Dam Recreation Area several miles short of Burbank Airport.[6]

Powers was survived by his wife, two children, Dee and Francis Gary Powers Jr., and his five sisters. Powers is buried in Arlington National Cemetery as an Air Force veteran.[6][7]

Well that's different. How did you make the connection?

Do they reassign those numbers?

Hmmm... small problem here. The N4TV chopper registered to Coastal is a Eurocopter AS 350 B2.

The Bell 206 with that number is registered to National Broadcasting Company in Burbank. ???

Are you sure it's not where they get off? I thought the bungee was near the bridge.

*edit*

Here's a map, thanks slowhatch.

the preview is all suspenseful but somehow.. i would be really mad if
Jill and Thomas won...  really.  B:)

In the promo, it looks like this:
J/T - first or second
it looks like Jill and Thomas arrives first in the jump or second, their faces
tell me they are not third...

B/C - first, second, OR third. likely second

in the taxi, brook is stressed out about what place there are in,
problably on the way to pit stop?

N/K - LIKELY third
because of the taxi problem and Nat saying: "Hi, I'm in a race for a lot of money"
Nat has a fear of heights, making it difficult and lots of challenges.

JUST ONCE: LET A F/F TO WIN  :hearts:

I've found a good conceptual match to the chopper dropoff spot:   El Toro Airbase

It has the right shadow orientation wrt to some hills.  Looking for that small building ...

It has lots of big abandoned hangars where inside it looks like they are doing the mind task.




Never Mind!  see later post
