This must be a Detour choice then, and Kent cannot be seen in the shot.

The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Well Margie/Luke are safe next week.

And we learned that you CAN U Turn a team, even if you have been U Turned.

I think we need another promo or two to decide what story CBS is trying to tell us this week.

I was shocked that the Redheads were able to U-Turn another team without completing the entire Detour.

I think since the redheads got last and eliminated, we won't really know if they were or were not allowed to U-Turn.  I think maybe they could have gotten a BIG penalty when they got to the mat if they weren't last.  That's just me speculating though.

This probably means nothing, but in picture 17 there is a small elephant beside Vyxsin. Unless it is on different ground, it looks like its a mini elephant.

I believe that you can use the Double U-Turn once you get there (specifically after performing the first side of the Detour)

If someone can find the order of the Roadblocks/Detours/Route Info and the apparent equalizer, we would be able to tell a lot more from the night/day shots.

And again, may be kind of useless, but it definitely looks like Lukes hair gel when he is at the tea roadblock is a lot more worn out than what it looks like when all the teams are running through the gate (which usually would mean that the gate comes before the roadblock, by quite a lot of time).

The most common order is HOO, RB, DT, PS with a few RI fillers. I don't see any evidence of a change here.

I also realized that there cannot be a FF because all teams are seen doing the RB.

The statue is not a walrus and probably not "Paul". :lol: It is Ganesha, a Hindu god.

Just because everybody is doing the Roadblock, does not mean there is no Fast Forward.

Yes and apparently you could incorrectly complete the Detour you chose and still legitimately u-turn a team even if it's an advantage for doing it incorrectly. I've asked Mark & Bill during one of the RFF interviews a few years back and they said that they wouldn't have gotten a bigger penalty if they used the U-turn instead (they did consider doing the U-turn on Marisa & Brooke...), as long as you get to know where the U-turn sign is and you get there ahead of the team you wish to do the U-turn on.

So theoretically, one could follow a team to the U-Turn, use it, then go back and do the Detour?

:ascared If this is true, then it isn't a fair rule. I can't believe they would let them do that.

My opinion would be that the U-Turn can be used once you completed one side of the Detour. And I think we are going off-topic aren't we? :lol3:

A team would be penalized for not getting the clue sending them to the U-Turn location, or by following another team without finishing the task first. Depending on the circumstances, they might receive the penalty for not completing the Detour, and for not having the clue if they get to the pit stop without all the clues in hand to check in. In the past, Phil has sent teams back to get the missing clue. So I'm not sure exactly what would be done in an instance with two significant rule violations, but 4 hours for the one, and probably at least another half hour plus time saved or whatever it would be to neutralize the impact on the U-Turned team would be a good guess, I would think.
The closest I can think of what the Momily penalty in the first Thailand leg of TAR Classic, where they quit the detour, did not have the clue to the next location, and arrived at the pit stop having not gotten all the clues.  All we heard was a 24 hour penalty. I'm starting to wonder if the 24 hour penalty then was for multiple violations and not just quitting the detour; since we never saw a quit the detour violation again until very recently, and we were all surprised it was only 4 hours.

Since caps 46-48 are at night, one can safely assume that caps 10-12 and 41-45 follow an hours of operation.
Could they be running into the building that houses the Roadblock or is it something else?

46-48 are at the airport I believe, so perhaps there is an early am arrival. We may have those flight options recorded somewhere...will look tonight.

Meanwhile...from some twitters buried in my PM's...(thanks caper!!)

Let's look at GIRISH PARK.
