This is kind of off topic but how are the teams able to travel to places like Russia, China, India without a visa? Does AMazing Race take their passports and apply for a visa or what?  :duno: Plz and Thx! :future :hosed

I'm disappointed, but at least we know from the timeline that it's not going to be five in a row for TAR14.

Yes, TPTB gets all the visas they need, including other visas that they dont need, before the race ever starts.


I added a push pin for the address that Slowhatch found in post upthread. The location of the idol painting detour.

The last time I looked, there is no November 31st (and I would have noticed since that was the day I brought Lieb home.)


Opps!  So would you believe December 1st ?   :lol:

I am just darn glad that i haven't have the questions up for my game yet. And seriously, i bet TAR gave away who came in first since RFF spoiled it. :lol:

On promo 3, Ganesha Detour, when Globetrotters and Flight Time and Big Easy are doing the Detour, a full shot at the Detour shows 4 completed statues already, meaning 4 teams should have been on their way to the pit-stop already.

I am so sorry guys...but this is not right. I love spoilers, but this is the show...and I love the show more.

I will leave up the commentary, but I am removing the links to these vids for now, while I think about this.

Wherever it is there is a "familiar bottle" there, probably the Snapple bottle. Phil also says: "You may have noticed all the tea references in this leg." Another tea task? Maybe Gallory did the other detour which involved tea as well. Could just be the RB though.

Kind of reminds me how they plugged in a 7-Up promo in the Seychelles leg (S16)

This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

They show most of the detour and the checkins milanissimo has compiled an order of arrival from them: http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,24977.msg600352.html#msg600352

It looks like the painting and the school bus are the detour option. They have to deliver books to a school in those things. The cowboys, Gallory, and Zev and Justin do the books and everyone else does the painting.

(And I thought this was going to be a down week for clips)

I'm surprised they didn't attach a preview of Varanasi on the end of that last video to give us a headstart! :funny:

Oh my....  I was just up to check. after multiple calls to them, our team appear to have gotten the game glitch fixed.
,
But this...is sad. These are the Insider clips I guess. Oh dear. CBS has ruined it's whole show.

Y'all know I love spoilers, but I loe the show more. Oh dear..... :'(

I'll have to think about this for a bit.

I think this is the first time TAR has gone officially mad.

We should have one of their employees make an RFF account and give them the title of TAR Detectives. :lol:

I'm very pissed about this right now, actually.. mswood.. i think we need a discussion about this on our games.

I absolutely respect peach's decision and agree with her that RFF shouldn't SPOIL the ENTIRE show. Kudos to peach for minimizing damage, at least to some extent.

Spoiling the show is what we do.

Now, I agree that this is certainly a different scenario because there is no way CBS would want to give away who was eliminated.

But, almost the entirety of episode one was spoiled.  Does the fact that it was not found on twitter change the fact that its something that we know about the episode before we should? If people don't want to end up spoiled, they should know not to wander into the spoiler section, simple.

I hope these spoilers are just a one time thing. I hope CBS won't spoil the next episodes.

I understand as well, Coutzy. And that episode was the result of a lot of people's hard work getting spoilers. It was info obtained fair and square.

But this is a clear mistake on CBS's part...someone screwed up. And they have already done their best to fix it by taking down the links from the CBS site.

So we are not going to profit on their mistake.

This is a judgement call. TL and I have discussed it, and I am leaving the links to the vids removed, but will leave the commentary on what was seen up.

I don't want this to turn into a big "ethics of spoilers" discussion. But I will say again that I love the show more than the spoilers, and will never do anything to deliberately hurt it. Honest spoilers excepted, of course, as those ADD to and don't detract from the show, as we all know. :tup:

But these aren't "honest", and I don't want us to participate in continuing a mistake.

It is the same reason I choose not to do boot lists, and never intentionally spoil the final 3. Some things are too much.


Sorry if you all feel differently, I understand your position as well, just hope you can appreciate mine.

I will review the games and let mswood and Joab know what questions may have an unfair advantage from those who saw the vids.
