This week's SPECULATED timeline. The blue text is what I added. Feel free to correct me!

Quote
EP07: Kolkata, India to Varanasi, India
EVIDENCE: Teams seen in departure area of CCU (Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport) on 12/2 (Source) at apx 3:10pm (Source); Jen/LaKisha booking Kingfisher Airlines flight (Source)

Film Date: DEC 2-3ish?
Air Date: APR 3

Leg Route/Tasks:
Route Marker: Get Roadblock clue at a local tonga stand.
Roadblock: Use pictures to search the streets of Varanasi for six holy men, who will in turn give team members parts of a phrase.
Route Marker: Get Detour clue at Tulsi Ghat Akhara.
Detour: Make 25 fuel patties out of buffalo manure and slap them on a wall at Sakka Ghat; load a stove with fuel patties and light a fire OR carry large bundles of hay through the crowded streets of Varanasi and deliver them to an unknown milk farm.

Safe from Elimination at End of Leg: Herb/Nate, Jen/LaKisha, Jet/Cord
Possibly Eliminated:

I'm gonna put my neck out and just say that the Roadblock comes after the detour.   :neener:

I have reasons but it's a bit of work ...

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

 I think I was close with this guess a few pages back.

Thinking out loud. There was a narrative working int he last episode. Ron and Christina wanting to work alone and keeping to themselves. With this new promo of the Holy man search, could it be possible that we see or will see Ron not working with others and the fall-out/elimination?

PROBALY very likely. But I don't know yet if it will cost him. I am getting nervous and want result already.. :'(

Great stuff Slowhatch!

Jen is working with Big Easy. Ron is shown by himself.

I would not be surprised, NoluckBoston.

This shot of Ron doing the Road Block (CBS reversed  :lol:) matches this Panoramio shot with high precision (check the weathered concrete rail and post!).   To the best of my rec'ning it was taken here:

G/M are passing the Prabhu ghat heading north (photo source). Prabhu is only 7 ghats north of Tulsi, so it would be reasonable to assume that they pick up the Detour boats right outside the akhara.

Well, help me out with this picture then!  Is this a racer or just a "how-you-do-it" person?

Thanks Gator,  I  think you're right now.   :groan:  So, I 'd better start back peddling!  That shot was made much earlier in the day before teams got there. 

So at this point I can't say Detour comes before Road Block.

carry on

Chateau:

The key is the footwear. Those are local Indian sandals. Racers are almost always wearing American sneakers for speed. As you know, there is no definite evidence here, but it certainly appear to be a local to me.

According to a post a couple pages back I think Jen/Kisha, Flight Time/Big Easy and Jet/Cord are the only teams confirmed to have survived this leg. Any of the other teams could have been eliminated.

Based on the previews and all I think Ron/Christina were most likely the ones eliminated, but that's just my own spec.

It could be either Ron\Chris, Kent\Vxysin, or Zev\Justin.

Thanks to Slowhatch's map I was able to (finally) zero in on the cow patti location.
