Racers doing the roadblock:

Zev
Ron
Flight Time
Kisha
Kent
Mallory
Luke
Jet


Based on caps 11-12, the Roadblock is being performed by Zev, Ron, Flight Time, Kisha, Kent, Mallory, and Jet. And of course, we know Luke is doing it. They spoiled the entire Roadblock in this promo!

Thanks Kandace  :waves:  I was wondering why most of them are doing it out of turn.

I think those racers you have in question are not doing out of turn..based on Wiki, their team's roadblock count is already balanced..I can't believe if I were in a race and have to face this roadblock...I have allergy for tea...  :helpme

Why is Mallory carrying an armload of fruit?
Is the task to find the cups of tea that matches the fruits you've been given?

An interesting observation, WP! There are several tables of fruit there.
But I have to wonder why Mallory is the only Racer carrying fruit. Why are the others just standing around?

In this shot, you can see more tables of fruit.

What about this? Racers appear to be looking for something on the bottom of the cups.

Maybe they have to find a fruit-flavored tea, then find the corresponding piece of fruit.  Most of the cups probably say "Sorry, Try Again" on the bottom.

PS: we do see Luke there with the other racers and full tables of tea.  It must have been very frustrating for him.

Just putting it out there...

Despite the fact of this being the first of two same country legs...This IS an ELIMINATION leg.  :(

This task may be similar to the Chinese food task of last season...you have to drink whatever you touch whether or not it's correct.
I agree with Chill; there may be many different flavors of tea on that table they have to search through to find their designated flavors, including plain.

Just an idea: Could they have been told to find a tea with the flavour of a specific fruit and at the bottom of the cup is the name of the fruit written so that the judge will recognise it?
Maybe it's not even written in English but in Hindu, to make it harder for the racers to remember what they have already tasted.
As for the tea having different flavours that's obvious of its colour. In many fotographs we see at least three different shades ( dark tea, yellow and orange coloured tea).

I think the yellow cage things are some kind of rickshaw schoolbus. Here's a picture taken of one in New Delhi. This looks like a route info to ride to the school in one. Jet and Cord can be seen at the school with a bunch of kids at one point.

Also the statue they are painting looks like a replica of the Hindu god Ganesha who is cleverly enough considered the remover of obstacles (roadblock).

It could be camera tricks, but this shot may indicate that the Cowboys, Ron and Chris, and Kisha and Jen have already left. :duno:

Thanks TP!

Are the cowboys holding an FF clue or is it a regular blue route info that just looks green because of the light? Can anyone zoom on it?

It looks like a route info to me. I can see 5 letters and 1 of them is a "R".

I would go with the yellow envelope reflecting onto the blue to make it look slightly green. There is still some blue visible.
