You see left T-shirt blue that maybe guess is FT or BE?  :duno:

Can't really help, but cap #5 and 6 - one of the signs behind the Sadhu seems to be a political ad for someone named Arun Sahu and the store next to it says "Priya Hair Dresser"   The rest of the Hindi is harder to read as it's blurry and I'm about 15 years out of practice.

Thank you so much raina, and :welcome2: to RFF!

Thank you Plaidmoon!!

Were they giving us clues for the next episode? Those street scenes look a lot like the RB location. But maybe all those streets just look the same.

If someone could identify the bridge here maybe we could place the ghat.

Its the bridge on the north side of Varanasi.......there are only 3 bridges........two like that one and the pontoon bridge at the other end of town......south side of town.


I thought it was the Malviya/kashi Bridge on Rt2 in Varanasi......but it is obvously not, as you have a photo of it below.

You mean the highway 36 bridge? The highway 98 bridge does not look like that at all and neither does the railroad bridge. I can't find any pics of the 36 bridge to the north but that has to be it.

It doesn't look like there are any places for ghats around there though....

Ravidas Mandir is near the railroad bridge which does not look like the suspension bridge I was mentioning at all.

Here it is:

Back to square one... :groan:

it is the Hooghly Bridge to Kolkata...

But I still think the street scenes and holyman may be Varanasi.

These two are different holy men in different locations. The second one looks like the one from the intro.

Of course , but they were both seen in a matter of seconds in the ep 6 Detour Intro.

Well, I'm getting confused now. In the original intro was this guy who does not look like either of the other two.



And the second intro has this guy who looks like a fourth one. :duno:

Would there be a task that involves the teams looking for a particular Holy man to receive their next clue?

I think we've also found editors who have having fun with the raw footage from both India legs.

So we have images of at least three holy men between the preview footage and the intro footage.

Quick......I need two aspirin or ibuprofen.

What I found interesting is that the suspension bridge is in the newest design that only has been built in a handful of places around the world. We first saw that design during TAR 9 in Greece, at night, btw.

Thanks for the welcome everyone.  I wish I could contribute more, but I'm afraid I lack the special sixth "detective" sense y'all have. 


The story is too long to quote here. I tend to think the one from Varanasi is more likely to have political ads.

I agree.  I think those two caps are very much likely to be from Varanasi mainly because of the use of Hindi.  In Kolkata, you would expect mostly Bengali and English.  Signs in Hindi would be rare.  I also thought Christina speaking a little Hindi last episode was not necessary.  They're just as likely to know your basic English greetings and what not as Hindi ones in West Bengal.

According to the CBS Schedule (if it hasn't been mentioned already) the name of the next episode is "You Don't Get Paid Unless You Win." :js:

Just a comment on the poo thing... I am not sure it's a FF because Jen was in dark colored pants with a light colored top 3/4 sleeve top.  Kisha had on shorts or capri's with a dark blue short sleeve top.  But there is a shot of someone in light colored pants (Khaki or cream), rolled up long sleeve blue shirt and their skin looks to be white.

I don't think it's a RB either because both Kisha and Jen are seen doing it.  I vote for detour option.
