The only thing it's safe to say is Jaime and Cara can W-TURN another team if Kent and Vyxsin indeed used the W-TURN on them. However, they will have to figure out who's BEHIND them. So it's all fair and square. Yes/No?

I doubt the Redheads can U-Turn anyone until they've finished the entire Detour. Brooke and Claire didn't U-Turn anyone when they were U-Turned by Jill and Thomas.
They may have changed the rule, though. :duno:
I know Kent and Vyxsin are definitely in front of Jaime and Cara and has high possibilities of W-TURN them. But i don't think we should speculate.. it's just like few hours back we saw Luke and Margie "first" at the W-TURN and also thought they could be using it on one other team.. turns out that if the screencap above is right, Margie and Luke didn't W-TURN anyone.
Well, it is a little different because we know that the redheads arrive over an hour behind the 8th team so they were probably Uturned. And if they are going to be Uturned it looks like the only team that can do it is the goths.

I am starting to think that maybe the second Uturn is not used.

I wish I could do screen caps.  There will be some good new caps from this promo.  In one shot, there's a big "P" sign next to the U-Turn x2.   Does this mean "Parking"?

Brooke and Claire CAN'T W-TURN anyone because Nat and Kat used the second W-TURN before they even reached the W-TURN sign. We do not know of any W-TURN rule of whether or not a team can use the W-TURN if they see their faces on the sign. It would defeat all purpose of a W-TURN letting a team who got W-TURN to W-TURN another team so that it's sort of "fair" right?

Okay, i just want to ask another question.. sorry if this has been asked.. but i don't think all the teams take the same train into Kunming right? I have been running through the thread this leg and see no mention of different trains timing. I don't think we know... right?

I was thinking about that too

Another observation: If Margie and Luke did not U-Turn, then there must be another U-Turn throughout the Race course, most likely a normal U-Turn or a Blind U-Turn.

Is that how it happened? I can't remember. ???

This is just spec, but I think Jaime and Cara and Kent and Vxysin will fight about who gets there first as they are both grabbing for the picture box!
By the way, my child is not a brat (:

Maybe production will have to intervene! :lol3:

I bet both team members have to step on the Uturn mat so it will go to the goths.

In this shot, one of them is saying "Let's go." You can see by their faces that they are not happy. This may follow their getting U-Turned.
Does anyone think the red wall in the background coincides with the U-Turn location?

This looks like they are riding golf carts in a stone forest.  The famous one is Lunan Stone Forest.

Yes, I think the roadblock is there. You can see the famous stones in some of the shots of them doing that puzzle.

This task is after the Uturn though so what are they talking about?

This week's press release:

Quote
"Don't Ruin the Basketball Game" (Kunming, China) — The pressure builds when a prehistoric Roadblock pushes one Racer over the edge and a Double U-turn causes panic among the teams as they race to avoid elimination, on THE AMAZING RACE, Sunday, March 20 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Phil Keoghan is host.

The RB looked like it pushed several Racers over the edge! :lol:

teams arrived Kunming at 5:18(Chinese time).

Now teams head to Dounan flower market.

Not sure they will set up a pitstart there or 2nd leg in China...try to get more information now.

According to this the teams arrived at 5.18a.m. In this timetable I found this time doesn't match, but this is the most recent schedule, so it could have been different in November.


Take a look nevertheless in the two night trains that arrive with one hour difference. We could have the teams in two similar trains, maybe having first sign in, like they did in Sydney. That would explain why Kent & Vyxsin could catch up with Jamie and Cara, if they were all together in the second train.

She's building a dinosaur. There's a dinosaur museum/park near Kunming called Lufeng. Also at Lufeng is "Stone Forest," with terrain that resembles the cap.
