It's still a possibility that they are going to clash once again in China and maybe they even show the feud from season 14 to remind us...still have many places for them to clash.... :lol:

:roo for tonight's episode...

Phil's video diary shows him leaving Shelly Beach and going to the airport to catch the 6:20 pm Rex flight ZL878 to Broken Hill on Nov 22. So he got to get a bed there that night. It shows him flying back to Sydney. He talks about catching the flight to Tokyo. But here is the fly in the ointment. The reg daily flight from Broken Hill to Sydney is at 630 am. The two charters the teams flew on left at 8:50 am and 9:30 am after they dropped off the teams. The next flight from Broken Hill to Sydney is at 630am on Nov 24 ZL877. If it had been on time, he might could have made JL772 leaving Sydney for Narita at 9:20 am. But it was late in arriving in Sydney and he would have ended up on same flight with teams on the Qantas 21 flight.

Looks like Phil left Broken Hill on Rex Regional ZL863 @ 1325 to Dubbo and then from there on same flight number to Sydney. Arriving at 1705 with plenty of time to catch QF21 to Narita. Dubbo is a town between Broken Hill and Sydney. It is on the same highway and the train passes through there too on the way to Sydney.

So it looks like he was in Narita starting a nice day off before teams even arrived in Sydney on the train.

Hmmm...I think there may have been another chartered flight for production?? Seems like someone told me something about production flying out that night, about the time the teams were heading to the trains. Will look later.

Well I wont argue with you Peach, but in the video....it is very bright sunshine. More like mid day when Phil says "they" are leaving to catch flight to Japan. Flight Stats shows no direct flights from Broken Hill to Sydney after 9:30 am on the 23rd.

Flight ZL863 leaves Broken Hill at 1:25 pm and makes a stop in Dubbo, then continues on to Sydney after 20 minutes on the ground.

If Production left around 6 pm....it was probably ZL4833 to Alelaide. From there one late night flight and 2 early morning flights to Sydney to connect with JL772 to Japan @ 9:20 am on Nov 24. They would land in Narita before the teams left Sydney.

How about a finale task that has something to do with clue-givers? Like

Leg 1: Commodore
Leg 2: Spirit World Lady*
Leg 3: Frog of Luck Man*
Leg 4: Either one of the Zodiac Men
Leg 5: Paleontologist

*Though I think this task is not gonna be the finale task. It would be unfair for Detour choices such as these. :lol:

I can't find the interview right now, but I remember Phil saying that teams were going to be shocked by how sneaky (an)other team(s) was, and it looks like he was referring to Kent & Vyxsin because Phil responded to a tweet with this:

I'm not sure if this has already been posted/discussed, but I just read it and thought it could be interesting.

Interviewed here: http://www.realitytvworld.com/news/exclusive-mel-white-talks-the-amazing-race-unfinished-business--12053.php after his elimination, Mel said this about Ron and Christina

Quote
Mel White: Well, we both really learned to love [Ron Hsu] and Christina. They did some silly things on the Race, but they're very lovable people and amusing and fun to be with

Now, I'm just guessing (speculating ^^) but since Mel and Mike were eliminated pretty early in the race, I don't think they could have had many chances to "learn to love" R&C. But this could be the case if they spent some time together at Elimination Station. IF the assumption is correct, Ron and Chris will be eliminated fairly soon, as later teams no longer go to ES but are kept with production.

Just my two cents (well, pence  :lol:) anyway.

In the previous races there were usually three NELs. If we suppose that in this race the NELs have been replaced with KRLs then we should have one more of those. So far the KRLs happened in the same country, now the only country that has two legs is India, but somehow I don't think that we are going to see a KRL in Kolkatta. I thing that both Indian legs will be normal elimination legs and that the last KRL, if it exists, will be the Vienna-Luxemburg-Zermaat combination. All three places are very close to each other and there are frequent and regular trains between them.
Another factor, so far both KRLs contained a train ride.

Of course all these are just speculation and TPTB might surprises again.

As per  :angel Kolkatta is an elimination leg, and there's still going to be a Normal NEL this season

This clue is Fast-forward?The clue looks green.
Sadly...no FF.

I think they are basically phasing out the FF at this point, who knows if we'll even see one this season.

Can anyone confirm that there will be a regular NEL at some point?

All I Can say is dont count your chickens yet.I have some sources 50% realiable,but I don't want to be wrong.I'll wait till after next leg to post it.

Could you at least post it in speculation?  It might really help with the spoiling process this week.  :duno:

We can speculate right here Lucybell! Once the episode thread is open, we try to keep everything together. So spec away!! :yess:

Thanks Peach!  :tup:

OK Since she stated, 'Don't count your chickens before they hatch' in reference to Marge and Luke (Zev/Justin and Ron/Christina, as well) possibly eliminated this week, I assume that the information she obtained might be a Luke & Marge win this season?  :duno:

I don't think anybody at all knows who won TAR:UB. If you click on the links that woden placed in this week's timeline, you can see that all teams except Zev\Justin, Margie\Luke, and Ron\Chris have been spotted past this leg, which is why the status of those three teams is uncertain.

Someone might have brought this up already, but I'm starting to believe that any final memory challenge is going to deal with animals.

Leg 1: Aquatic animals
Leg 2: Kangaroo
Leg 3: Kintarō Statue bear
Leg 4: Yak/Chinese Zodiac
Leg 5: Dinosaur
Leg 6: Ganesha (elephant)

(If TPTB decided to make it more difficult like everything else in TAR18, I wouldn't be surprised if they decided on a multi-layered memory roadblock, where there are no notes allowed, and each racer would have to identify all the animals, all the uniforms that each greeter was wearing with only images of the uniform itself and no faces or bodies of the greeters, and an extra layer on top of those two.)

This is actually very plausible, slayton! It will be interesting if what they really do is close to some of the spec on here.

Or maybe something similar to the memory task from tar12???

Given that the Racers have had a task already this season that expressly prohibited them from using notes, the possibility of such a requirement as part of a final task would make sense.

The difference was that in the task on Leg 5 they were not allowed to take notes. If they wanted to forbid the teams from using their own notes at the final memory challenge they could always confiscate them.
