From what I understand, this should be a TBC/NEL version 2 just like Manly was. A "Keep on racing" leg NOT a NEL with a penalty like a speedbump or anything.


Mad Joe said goth got 30 mins penalty at Kunming leg for not coming first...and R/C actually had a rest after checking in at Yulong plaza...so there should be two different legs.

They ARE two different legs. Just like Australia was.

There may be a "not in first place" penalty OR that may be for something else altogether, I don't know.

But this is not a speedbump leg... not an "oldtime NEL" is what I mean.

I wouldn't be surprised to see this also happen at Spruce meadow. Looks like there are a lot of yaks up there.

Also....let's think a little about why we see a team driving lost.

I think if they are just looking for the airport it would be pretty straightforward. Airports are marked.

So is there an in between route info stop to find?

The press release seemed to think it was the airport they were looking for:

Interesting tidbit in this week's press release:

Quote
Frustrations rise in China when one team's position in the race is jeopardized after getting lost and misplacing their passport twice, ON "THE AMAZING RACE," SUNDAY, MARCH 13

 "This Is the Most Stupid Day Ever" (Lijiang, China) — After losing all sense of direction en route to the airport and their passport twice, a Racer's frustration threatens to get the best of their team, on THE AMAZING RACE, Sunday, March 13 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Phil Keoghan is host.

Got to be the Goths. They are probably behind the whole episode.

Also, Google Maps shows an over two hour drive from Perry Park to the airport, if in fact that is where they are driving from. There are plenty of opportunities for getting lost on that route as well.

Looks like Kynt and Vxysin have a really bad day. When Vxysin tells the bus to turn around, this must be one of the times they lose their passports.

Second promo:


So...Ron is mad at Christina, not the driver! I am getting more and more confused as to what it going on with the trams and buses. Ron wants to take the bus up instead of the tram?

Thanks, Prophet. The marked bus with the Trotters does appear to slow down in the last few frames, so maybe they'll stick a phony cliffhanger/commercial break in that spot.  :lol:

You're amazing, as usual, Slowhatch. I was thinking that this has something to do with the Detour since we've been shown nothing of it. I guess it is at the PS.
Of course, this could be one of those Double Roadblock episodes. :duno:

Or if it is like peach says it could be like Australia where there is no Detour this time and no RB next time.

Correct, the bolded part is my spec. By what you said I meant the part about the unconventional NEL/TBC:

From what I understand, this should be a TBC/NEL version 2 just like Manly was. A "Keep on racing" leg NOT a NEL with a penalty like a speedbump or anything.

Thank you, Prophet, your deductive reasoning and in-depth analyses never cease to amaze me. I am eagerly waiting for more contributions on your part once we are provided with more promos. :tup:
