I was waiting to hear that., I figured that would happen whether Phil tweeted it or not.

The Chinese zodiac signs will make an appearance according to Luke. Perhaps in the RB?

I was wondering when someone was going to mention this part of the leg. I would say probably not the RB because I think this sighting was in the ancient city.

Run for the Pit Stop stairs.......


Cara, Jamie, Luke, Margie

Starting up the stairs...


Jamie/Cara in the lead, appear to be blocking Luke, No Margie? Cowboys in 3rd, Gary/Mallory in 4th.

Next frame........

Jamie/Cara still blocking Luke, Cowboys appear to be passing Margie on the left, Gary/Mallory still in 4th.

I don't think we're allowed to share personal information from facebook. Yes/No?

The privileges of being a racer: this photo, and the following 4/5 photos in the album, demonstrate what it's like for a typical tourist at Snow Mountain. Buy the tickets, queue for a bus, queue for a ski-lift, and queue for a "little green frog" (cart). Added together, it took this family 5 hours to reach Spruce Meadow.
I haven't found any matching pics for the K/V cablecar. It doesn't resemble the Yak Meadow cars, and a ski-lift is used for Spruce Meadow.

Actually...no, Joab is correct.

This is the current guideline....for once the cast is revealed.

Quote
** Once the casts are revealed, nothing (no photos, no comments, no anything) should be posted from a racer's OWN Facebook without their written approval. They honor us with their trust, so we try to respect the little privacy they have. Info from their FB FAN pages or Twitter is generally acceptable.


This is intended to prevent PERSONAL info being revealed, along with PERSONAL photos.

But if a racer is discussing the legs openly, I am inclined to think that is fine to share....

Great find Slowhatch! I was perplexed by the cable cars as well. I'm sure you'll figure it out though.

Glad that it's cleared. But i still think next time we should ask the racer for permission first. :lol:

Anyway, crash course for chinese zodiac.

CHINESE ZODIAC: Rat, Ox, Rabbit, Tiger, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Ram (Sheep/Goat), Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig

Basically, every Chinese New year for us Chinese means the passing of another "animal" year and the welcoming of another animal year. Last year was Tiger and this year, we "invited" the year of Rabbit.

It takes 12 years for one zodiac "cycle" to "finish" and then it will go back to the first animal again. For example, after the year of the pig, it will go back to the year of the rat.

We Chinese believe that the zodiac has got something to do with fengshui and greatly linked to the different things that happen in our life and whatsoever.

Okay, enough of zodiac talking. One thing for sure is, i DO believe that the task which Zev got stuck at and Vyxsin attempting (have to find wooden boards/cards or what) should be the Roadblock related to Zodiac signs. Just speculating. I can't find where as will the Zodiac be incorporated into the leg. :)

Now i hope that it has past teams writing words of wishes/curses for the teams still racing. :lol:

The teams were instructed to "eventually" deliver a box of candy to Phil, but I didn't notice any candy boxes at the (faux) pitstop.

Well the cynic in us was rewarded 3 times in that episode, before they even had to do ONE task. Airport in Japan, Train station in Kunming and shuttle bus in Lijiang.......lol

One of the best and most suspenseful episodes in a while! I am guessing the 30 mins penalty that was overheard is for taking another flight? Airport drama <3 TBC <3 losig passports <3 zev and Justin struggling <3 Luke and Margie first <3 SOO MANY HEARTS!!! But should have defs been 90 mins. Detour was rushed!!

Ps how is this gonna work with scheduling? No NELs??

Kept thinking can't be a TBC but timing was leading massively to it.

So you really think, that after penalizing themselves about 6 hours by getting lost driving to the airport, TPTB will penalize them another 30 minutes?


Actually if people would have researched the flight options for that day, you probably would understand why teams were forced to fly on that 9:50am flight.

This episode, for me, goes down in my Top Ten Favorite Episodes EVER.

For me, this is the best Chinese leg ever been designed.
Chinese Yaks <3
Chinese Zodiac <3
Chinese Zodiac Part II <3
Chinese Detour <3
High Elevation <3
Goth Breakdowns <3
Rontina Breakdowns <3
AND... A SURPRISE FAUX-LEG! <3333333333333333

I've never been this happy for almost 4 seasons already. If I haven't been spoiled that this is a TBC leg, I would definitely be 1000% more happy, but oh well. :lol:

I LOVE CHINA.
