That's what I was just about to say mswood. Why switch if it is only going to take about ten more minutes to get done?

I think they would have to eat a whole second plate, nobody wants to do that.

But you are assuming they CAN finish the meal.  What if during that first 12 minutes they realize there is no way they can finish the food task period.   The food they are eating is pretty heavy and even for myself, I wouldn't be able to finish off that entire meal period.....I may be able to do it in 24-36 minutes but I'd more than likely barf.  lol  so maybe the team desides to jump off at the 12 minute mark and continue on because they know they can't finish it.  Or maybe they do go another revolution and they barf on the second revolution and are given a new plate.  By that point they know they aren't going to finish so might as well jump out at 24 minutes and go to the other task.

Interesting theory and totally possible. However I'm still inclined to think that they have to finish it all in 12 minutes, or else they get a new plate. In the promo, Gary says, "We've got a lot of food to eat in 12 minutes," or something like that. Kinda implies that they really have to eat the food in 12 minutes. If it were just a matter of finishing it at your own pace, he'd probably just say, "We've got a lot of food to eat."

There are two people, posting in this thread, that have ridden that ferris wheel............and they both say it takes 25-30 minutes to make one revolution...........when Gary says that they have 12 minutes........they are WAY up in the air..........or I am the only one that notices that little fact?

Dr Rox, I suspect they are not given the food until they only have 12 minutes left in the rotation.  In other words, the food isn't served as soon as they are seated and moving, the Racers are having to wait to be served.

Ans also, Dr Rox, I mentioned in this thread as the time that first promo was available that has the Cowboys comment in Salzberg once they have the book, that I thought the editors were using misleading editing in the promo. I still believe we have to understand the comments are referring no other teams in their proximity of the castle behind the Cowboys.  My speculation is that even if the Cowboys were last out of the Vienna airport (which may or may not be true), they zip through the tasks for this leg, and arrive first. It won't seem to matter if they did the eating or the couch option on the detour or for some reason had to do both, I still think they will do it faster and with fewer problems than the other teams.

I'm also not sure if this will be a no-rest pit stop or not, but I do believe we're getting another no-rest NEL pit stop before the end of the Race.

I speculate that each team has a set time of twelve minutes rather than the time span of one revolution, because teams getting on and off the ferris wheel could cause "one revolution" to be more of a dynamic time frame than a static time frame.

There is a cap somewhere of the food going thru the door though.

Here it is. That shot looks like for show, there are no teams in there. How else would they get the food up there but through the door anyway?

I will bet that is from the stand-up, and not from the actual task filming.

It's possible since I cannot presently see any teams in the car.

In the attached screencaps from the web promo of the detour, both Zev/Justin and Jen/Keisha are at the top when they say they have 6 minutes left to go.  As they reach the top Justin says, "we are at the top right now..." and the clock says just over 6 minutes.    Therefore IF (and I say if) they started eating once they got into the ferris wheel just as it started to move, and  after 6 minutes and a few second in they are at the top, then logically it's going to take the same amount of time to get back down to the bottom.

I know people have stated that it takes 24-25 minutes for the ferris wheel.  But when Zev/Justin are on it, they say "we are already at the top, can you finish that?" and the clock is counting down at just over 6 minutes remianing.  Perhaps since they are not filling every car with 10-20 people, the revolution really only take 12 minutes.

that's what I was thinking also.  I'm sure a big part of that 25 minutes is the stopping/loading/restarting for passengers.  Or do they load ALL the cars, and then go 1 complete revolution...but then that could take close to 50 minutes,

Does someone go or do they stay??

That's the question for today.

NEL or TBC??

I know! That must mean there's a fast forward on this leg!

JUST KIDDING.

But seriously, what has two thumbs and not the slightest clue about figuring out the riddle? :neener:

I honestly think there's a FF this leg. About time for one.. but why aren't they showing any related tasks?

My only reasoning for believing nobody is getting eliminated would be: would Peach really make us doubt an elimination if there wasn't reasonable cause?
