Hooray! The internationals can now watch! :hearts:

Unless you can't view CBS' youtube. :(

It's very evident that we can't view CBS' videos unless after a week or so. How come you didn't know that (you know everything, right?)?Thanks for the vid, but no thanks. :lol:

I'm very sorry; I did not realize this at first. Peach will clear things up when she returns. :tup:

Is this a clue or a U-Turn picture? I can't tell.

I'm pretty sure it's a clue.
Looked like 2 faces to me. Maybe I'm crazy...

Here's something to ponder upon:


Jaime and Cara were however, I believe, U-Turned in the traditional way. :angel

Even though it is not 100% valid proof that this is true, from this you can deduct that Kent and Vyxsin targeted Jaime and Cara out of the race. :'(

Closer.
If there is a COP it is in his left hand. The clue could be in his right hand.

Kent is holding a clue. Jaime is holding something else.

What are they riding in this shot and where are they going?



Could this just be an area at the Flower Market that is landscaped in the style of the area, ie karst topography. If the Trotters say W Turn ahead, then this has to be long before they do the dinosaur skeleton RB, and they are on their way to the Golden Horse and Jade Rooster Archway to get the detour clues?

Again I think TPTB are messing with the light content of the promos. Trying to make us thing things happen a lot earlier than they really do.

It's very possible that they are adjusting the light. We were just surprised that Margie passes up a U-Turn opportunity. Of course, the cap of the Goths at the U-Turn could be air-brushed so that we can't see whether or not anyone's picture is on the sign.

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.

This makes more sense.  The Lunan Stone Forest is 90 minutes southeast of Kunming.  I went to Lunan Stone Forest last October, so I am confident about the drive (bus ride) time.

I tend to agree that Kent has a clue envelope. I think the pictures they would post are bigger and have bigger images of the people.

There's a whole lot going on in that promo. I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Gary and Mallory having a heated discussion with what appears to be a cab driver. Also Kent taking a nasty spill and landing on the step ladder he was using to put the tail on the dinosaur. I'll bet he had some big bruises the next day. I look forward to seeing the screencaps. It's too much to catch while it's moving.

But it looks MUCH harder. It looks as though teams have to move that step ladder around so that they can reach certain parts of the puzzle.

Yes, Plaidmoon, I do believe this cap has been overlooked. Can anyone identify any of the surrounding area?

Kent is holding that clue and obscurring the sign. Jamie is blocking the other side of the sign. If you look behind Kent's hand.....I that a photo on the sign. You can compare that sign with the signs in the photo of FT/BE just below a coupld of posts.

But look at the large empty space indicated by the blue square. There is no photo there. If there was a photo, it would be there.

The cap is from 1:33 into this video. Notice the paving as well as the green carts.

Great find, Slowhatch. Looks like TPTB did a voice over of the Globes saying W Turn ahead on video from the RB.

After re-looking at the basketball game. I think Kisha and Jen are also playing. Also the teams must have some amount of time there (HOO?) because the trotters have everybody outfitted.  :lol:

If there is a HOO I still can't figure out how M/L got around it.

Yes, Plaidmoon, I do believe this cap has been overlooked. Can anyone identify any of the surrounding area?

We know they go to Dounan Flower Market, Golden Horse and Jade Rooster Archway, Green Lake Park and apparently the Lunan Stone Forest. I've been looking over pictures of each site and I don't think it's the Flower Market because it's in a built up business area with no parking areas like the one shown that I can see. The Archway appears to be in a plaza of some sort, so I don't think it's that. Green Lake Park appears to be surrounded by a residential neighborhood. My first glance said that those buildings in the background didn't seem to be a match but I did find a couple of possible parking areas near Green Lake Park on Google Earth. However I couldn't make the surrounding area match up. It's a possibility though. That leaves the Stone Garden. Unfortunately, no one takes pictures of tourist attraction parking lots. The screen cap has the look of a tourist attraction parking lot, so the Stone Garden looks like a possible fit, but the one or two pictures I saw that appeared to be at the entrance show stone pillars, so it's not really a fit for a screen cap.

Ultimately, I think it's most likely a site we haven't identified, possibly the hospital, possibly somewhere else. It's less likely but possible that it's Green Lake Park or Lunan Stone Forest. How's that for not clearing up much?
