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.
Physics alone is not enough.

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.
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

Or then again, they could choose not to even have a final memory challenge.... :res:

TAR 12 and the flag one still live on as the best and most challenging ones ever...for me.

The surfboards were pretty good too, especially since for some legs they picked obscure things (ie the church in leg 1, one of the RB foods in leg '11').

I always like making my final prediction way in advance, and it helps that I have no particular rooting interest this season clouding my judgment. 

Unless the editing was completely revamped, I expect to see Zev & Justin win.  I expect Kent & Vyxsin and Ronald & Christina to make the final 4 and likely the final 3, and even though I wouldn't be surprised by either of these two teams winning, I still see them as long shots.

Based on the editing, I didn't expect Margie & Luke to get far.

My reading of the tea leaves has Gary & Mallory, Herbert & Nathaniel, Kisha & Jen, and Jet & Cord exiting in episodes 7 to 11.

I don't mind being wrong because it would mean that they revamped the way they cut the show, but if I'm on target, then TPTB should really change the way they cut the show starting with TAR19.

Very interesting predictions Slayton...

If I had to pick a winner, it would be Jen and Kisha or Gary and Mallory. Both have had fairly harmless and positive edits that tend to characterize the winner's edit, IMO.

Your reading of the tea leaves? I don't want to start a who will win argument but I don't agree with your conclusions.

Then don't!!

This is a speculation thread, all speculation is welcomed.

Ok, if it is alright then I will give my opinion. It's just my opinion and I respect everyone else's opinion about the final and what teams will attend and/or win and am not starting an argument.

I would be quite surprised to see Kisha and Jen, Gary and Mallory, or Jet and Cord eliminated soon. In fact if I had to pick a final three it would probably be these three. Although Ron and Chris could beat the sisters. The cowboys and Gallory performed mostly well in their previous seasons and still seem to be strong competitors this time. I'm not crazy about the editing theory but I would tend to think that the editors are favoring these two teams by portraying them as interesting and positive. Basically though, we can't really tell for certain at this point who might win.

At this point, due tot he constant flip-flopping of positions, I think that the teams' fate will be determined by a single task that will be their do-or-die. Therefore, I will eliminate the "previous performance" factor and consider each leg as an independent event.

Based on what Mel & Mike said about getting to know Ron better, I speculate Ron & Christina were sent to ES, and if only teams 4-6 do decoys, that would mean they are eliminated next week.

Now, onto my predictions of F3. Based on screen-time, the most featured teams this season, and those more likely to be on the F3 based on this, IMO are:
Gary & Mallory, Zev & Justin and Kent & Vyxsin

Flight Time & Big Easy have been recently shown to have positive interactions with other teams so far, so they might get a high placement.

Jet & Cord are being edited a bit under-the-radar, and they have the taxi-stealing karma pending on them.

Kisha & Jen are also UTR, but this is due to the editors probably not including their fighting scenes. This could be either, not including them because they are eliminated, or they go for the win unexpectedly. Another thing to consider is that they get the "...Million Dollars" quote shown in the preview and in the episode, the same as with Nat & Kat.

Concluding, I believe the Final 3 are:
Zev & Justin, Kent & Vyxsin and Gallory/Jenkisha

Did anyone else notice the order that the teams were placed in for the monologue "8 teams remain, who will be eliminated next"

1. Zev and Justin (one to watch, a blogger said)
2. Gary and Mallory (one to watch, a blogger said)
3. Ron and Christina (under the radar)
4. FT and BE (spotted in Rio De Janiero F4?)
5. Kisha and Jen (one to watch, a blogger said)
6. Jet and Cord (spotted in Madrid, en route to Austria F6?)
7. Kent and Vyxsin (last to Elim. Station? Friends with Luke, Amanda etc)
8. Margie and Luke
9. Jamie and Cara
10. Mel and Mike
11. Amanda and Kris

A bit obvious though, isn't it?

Or it's just my hoping that Jet/Cord make it further :P

8. Margie and Luke
9. Jamie and Cara
10. Mel and Mike
11. Amanda and Kris

Where was this?

Cause I DON'T expect to see K/V arrive at Elim station, (going by J/C's interview) and I DO expect R/C  to (going by M/M's interviews)

I have a feeling that Gary and Mallory win, with Kisha and Jen 2nd and Zev and Justin 3rd.
Maybe K/V as the fourth placed (I desperately want them to make it far) and the Cowboys 5th.
Then I would say Globetrotters 6th and finally Ron and Christina 7th.


So my speculation is
1. Gary and Mallory
2. Kisha and Jen
3. Zev and Justin
4. Kent and Vyxsin
5. Jet and Cord
6. Flight time and Big Easy
7. Ron and Christina

I believe that if the cowboys were truly spotted in the Madrid airport, they must have been en route to the elimination station (in southeast asia).

And I wouldn't place any bets on any team from S14 making it to the F3.
