Thomas finishes in 4th.

Gary finish in 5th.

Gary & Mallory team #4,  Jill and THomas had to go back for their bags.

Michael gets the 2nd on the first try.  Stephanie does #2.  Michael does #3, head to Pit Stop.  And a what should be a huge penalty.

Jill & Thomas have trouble paying cab.  Michael & Kevin also have trouble paying.

What a mess of an episode, for several teams.

OK...what happened to the Speedbump?
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

Jill & Thomas should be okay.

Michael & Kevin are in trouble, but --

So are Chad & Stephanie.  One of those two teams will be out.  I hope it's Chad & Stephanie.

Cab drivers are holding the bags to get paid.  Teams should know in advance that cabs are expensive in Russia.

I assume that the penalties should be different because they took cabs for different lengths of time.  But didn't something similar happen in All Stars??

Although the last two teams will both have penalties, I think the difference in times will be too much for Michael/Kevin to overcome. Hope I'm wrong though.

Michael & Kevin took a cab for two sections they shouldn't have.  Chad & Stephanie only one section, shouldn't that be two different penalties?

Probably Michael & Kevin will get 30 min for when they hired the cab to guide them + 30 min +advantage for the part Brook & Claire corrected, with Chad & Steph only getting the latter.

No Speed Bump ?
Had to be edited out.  Probably before Circus, with how easily they caught up.

Jill & THomas use American Currency to pay up.  Kevin argues that they have to be released they are last.  Use 40 US to finally get past.  

Jill & THomas team #5

Stephanie gets third, they leave without their bags.  Idiots.  But I understand why.

Chad & Stepahnie

Yikes, tehy haven't paid their cab. they have to go back pay cab before checking in.  IDIOTS.

Michael & Kevin.  Rule Breakers....Following Cab, and taking a cab.  Thirty minutes each.  One hour penalty.

Chad & Stephanie are still hustling.

Rule Breakers.

30 minute penalty.  Michael & Kevin are still waiting.  They are team number 6 and still in the race.

Even with that, I hold that all teams should actually watch the damn show before.  And how many times in Russia has cash been an issue with cabs.    Seriously.

Looks like Michael & Kevin had more than 30 minutes to go into their penalty.  If they'd gotten the first of those three pins done sooner, they'd still be in the Race.  Of course, if they'd also paid more attention to the clues, they'd still be in the Race.

Clearly check in this is Nick & Vicki's best, but they also really nailed the Norway leg, but without check in times no real reference point.

Didn't mean to type plural.
