Thoughts:

Kisha, Big Easy, Christina, Kent, and Jaime are all there at the same time. So much for the Uturn mattering. (What happens??)

Kisha must be close to being done because they check in at the same time at M/L who are presumably already done.

Jet and Cord and Gallory are also probably done already.
I haven't read this whole thread, so not sure if that is part of the detour, but if it is (and judging by checkin times) it would seem to me that Gary/Mallory and Jaime/Kara are the teams who get u-turned, with Gallory using express pass to nullify it. This would explain why they check in so much after the next closest team, while the rest are fairly bunched.

Promo 3 (RB) now up in post 2!!

Ironic if JaCa are able to almost catch up after a UTURN only to be defeated by a puzzle....their pic there is about 45 minutes behind the Cowboys.

Well, as one can see, everyone else is further along than the Redheads on their puzzles. Justin, Kent, and Christina had theirs completely assembled except for one tiny piece. Also, based on the Redheads' completely stressed attitudes, something bad definitely happened to them.

Instead of saying Kent and Christina had theirs completely assembled, i think the more accurate way to say it is that they finally figured out what is wrong with their model, as we do see them disassembling their model completely apart to correct that one piece.

Cara and Jaime probably made the same mistake and didn't figure it out.. so they fell too far behind.

Include Zev and Justin on the list. They are there too.

And see? The "I-thought-I-heard-Jen-say-"Go-Kisha"" is true! :lol:

They only ones we haven't see so far at the RB is Gary and Mallory. Could they have used their EP to skip the RB? At some point they were having a heeted argument with a taxi driver, so there is a possibility they got lost and decided to use the EP, fearing elimination.
Does anyone knows if they have to arrive at a task before using it or if they can use it even en route?

I think they need to be in a location where they can get the next clue.  If you are stuck in traffic and want to skip the next task, you would have no way of knowing where to go next.

Looks like most of them are getting the breastbone backwards and have to switch it around. I assumed the part, where Kent and Cara are in the same sceencap, was when Kent was finished and preparing to leave. He has his jacket back on. It is going to be interesting to see how this all unfolds tomorrow night.

I think Jaime and Cara pull a Carol and Brandy on us by choosing the harder Detour option first, which is how they sort of catch up to other teams at the Roadblock.

In this shot, five puzzles can be seen being worked on simultaneuously. However, throughout the video, six team members are shown working on them. So either the first shot does not comprise all the puzzles or CBS is playing tricks.

Unless they switched toques, Cara is doing the RB and Jamie is standing next to Vyxen and Justin. Jamie's toque has the skull and crossbones on it.

According to the seating rule, Jaime should be on the left (viewer perspective) in their official interview. She is doing the RB.

I've read all 11 pages and I am still confused. Is the basketball game at Lijiang taxi stand or the Yunnan Province Culture Center in Kunming. Thanks. :duno:

Okay guys, y'all are cracking me up. CARA is watching, JAIME is doing the RB.

The BBall game is at the Lijiang train station I think.

I tell them apart by Jaime being the prettier and milder looking one. :lol:

Cara is the one with a "meaner" look. :lol:

The flower market could just be an 'inactive' route marker  :lol:
It would be a shame if the flower market is only an inactive route marker.  I visited a Kunming flower market last October.  The have gorgeous flower arrangements.  I could see the TAR producers using the flower arrangements to spell out the next destination.  Inside the flower market, they sold many, many different types of stuff including teas and herbs.  It could be a great place for teams to search for things.

That's what I was thinking as well, gator. The flower does seem like an excellent location for a tedious searching task. :tup:

Spoiler info seems to indicate they don't spend much time there, but that would be a shame.

Just to solve all the basketball questions, bball is a popular sport in China (probably due to Yaoming). So they probably traded/borrowed the bball from the people who work at the train station. who play in their spare time akak lunch breaks.
