They got an hour penalty as far as I remember. Usually with the thirty minutes they just lose a spot. The problem was everyone was so close. It was fun to watch though.

I believe that the ROADBLOCK location was the Le Capri hotel restaurant (only one in Le Petit Cervin) kitchen on the 4th floor. Le Petit Cervin is located on Bahnhofstrasse and is one of 4 buildings making up the 5-star Mont Cervin (Matterhorn in French) Palace Hotel.

The usual diners for LeCapri would have easily been handled for lunch on December 8/9/1010 (I'm not sure which but that is irrelevant), 2010 by the other restaurants in the Mont Cervin buildings:
two different rooms where a sumptuous breakfast buffet and, in the evening, an exquisite dinner, ā la carte dishes and weekly themed buffets are served
the Grill Le Cervin - meat and fish tastefully prepared on the charcoal grill and market-fresh products from the French kitchen

Sorry, haven't been doing my job for 4 legs. :lol:

With every team average to be a 4 and below for the final 4.. it could be ANYONE going next.

Yeah, they got a 30 minute penalty for paying a taxi to lead them, and 30 minutes for taking a taxi to the Church of the Savior on Blood when they were meant to travel on foot.

And I agree with the Prophet, it was a very quick leg especially with the bunching point at the train station. And it made for an exciting finish.

Here's the picture CBS has on their homepage today:


Not sure why they are using a picture from last week. :duno:

BECAUSE....


All the clues you need are here in this thread.... the tasks, the drama, the Philiminated team...


The pictures tell the story.

Say hello to "Madame Chocolate" (Marie-Christine Taugwalder), boss of the Boîte ā Chocolat. Maybe they work out of Le Petit Cervin, or perhaps the place was just rented for the day.

You find the coolest things! :yess:

Le Petit Cervin is a small hotel... hooked to a LARGE one, so perhaps the hotel did rent out their kitchen for the day... :duno:

Haha, I have a feeling this Pit Stop location was cooked up on the spot!

So while hunting around Zermatt, I found the location of the tour operator that managed the avalanche/crevice rescue tasks this leg. And their office (if you'd call it one) is located up in the northeastern corner of town, at the side of a steep slope. I got slightly confused following the street signs after those killer stairs, decided to take a straight path instead to the office, and... ended up shin-deep in the snow field that served as the Pit Stop...

And all this time I had no idea it would be the Pit Stop! (I swear I saw paw prints in the snow too! :lol:) Now I wonder if a PA took the same wrong turn while scouting for locations...

(Disclaimer to protect the behinds of the tour operator: no they were very tight-lipped, that's not where I got the information for both sides of the Detour!)

Raina found that at 8:35EDT during the show on Sunday night! That had to have been almost as soon as that lady was shown onscreen. Raina is too good!

Did somebody earlier wonder what it said at the bottom half of the roadblock clue? Because I figured it out and it has some interesting implications.

First a screencap:

The bottom part reads "Note: Zev must perform this roadblock"

The first thing we can infer from this is that the roadblock rules are more complicated than we think. Apparently it is not acceptable to have a distribution of 3-6 when going into the two final legs. Even though that would permit the team to get to 5-6 assuming there are two roadblocks and one team member performs both. I wonder if the rule is that the difference in performed road blocks may never be greater than 2?

The second thing we can infer form this is that production does not count the dinosaur building road block as performed by Gary. This is the road block they skipped with the express pass. That is because if we count that one as performed by Gary (he did say he was going to do it) then Gary & Mallory would also be at 5-3 at this stage in the race. That is the same as Zev & Justin and if so they should also have been listed on the clue.

They wouldn't know which position Zev & Justin would be in. Or maybe they just inserted a spare clue when they enter. I don't know.

The people at the Roadblock would almost definitely have been aware Zev & Justin were last. If they had arrived as part of a pack then probably not.

I find it easier to believe that all clues contained the note
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
