We can speculate right here Lucybell! Once the episode thread is open, we try to keep everything together. So spec away!! :yess:

Okay...my mistake. I thought you wanted to spec on Prophets TimeLine for this leg...there was a lot quoted there. :lol:

Spec on the Final 3 SHOULD go to spec. Feel free to quote his post if you want.

I'll move your posts over there...

If you want to discuss how any info related to the final 3 impacts THIS leg, spec away!! :waves:

It kind of does, in a way, pertain to this leg because Prophets 'Possibly Eliminated' has three teams listed which prompted the 'Don't count tour chickens' reply.  Then the tidbit about the winners.  This would indicate that one of these teams listed in the 'Possibly Eliminated' may be either the winners or in at least the finals so they will not be eliminated this leg... It would help to narrow down who gets eliminated this week.   Does that make sense? LOL   ???

My "Possibly Eliminated" list is based on live sighting spoilers, not on mere speculation. I don't know whether or not one of those three will make it to the F3 or not; all I know is they were not spotted past this leg of the Race.

I know you did a great job with the info you have!  Thanks Prophet!  I was just trying to find a way to widdle the 'possibly eliminated' list down and thought the tidbit about winners would help us do that.  The 'don't count your chickens' comment lead me to believe that one of the teams can be excluded from the list and therefore narrow down the possibilities...  That's all I was trying to point out.   :angel:

Woden was the one who invented these timelines, I'm just helping out while he's away. Thanks for the compliment, anyway. :tup:
I wish we could whittle down the possible elimination list as well.

Last team to check in in Kunming was approx @ 1416, Nov 29th. A standard Pit Stop after the KRLs would release teams at 0216 on Nov 30. There is a nightly direct flight from Kunming to Kolkatta, departing @ 2355 and arriving in Kolkata @ 2350. There are many other connections available through HongKong and Bangkok. If teams did fly the direct flight, it was mean about a 24+ pit stop.

Since teams appear to arrive at night time and do the RB during the night. I spec it is pretty good bet that they flew on this particular flight.

When I did a GE search for Girish Park, I actually got a park. Seems like a good place for the Detour Clue box.

If you look carefully at the same windows when all the racers are together you will see that is dark outside. We can see the sunlight at the same windows only in the scenes with Luke who we suppose he is last at that point.

Also, while Luke is there by himself, there are many cups of tea gone from the table.

Here's a comparison to those same windows:

Be careful to not confuse windows with doors...it may be that each side of the hall is different, one windows, one doors. Lack of light on one side may not be conclusive... depends on the angle of the shot.

This photo may only be LINKED to, but it helps: (thanks Chateau!)

There are a large number of the tea bowls gone. And there are no other racers visible in the shot of Luke. I would not be surprised if he was far behind at this point. However the RB is probably first, so there is no reason to conclude that they are eliminated based on the evidence we have so far.

I'm sure that was the pit stop for TAR5's Kolkata leg. I'm not sure if they would use it again.  :duno:

TPTB depends on the context. With context of race tasks and editing, it would be World Race Productions (WRP), Bert, Elise, and their gang.
