I'm not sure what the first hour of the finale will consist of. It could be a second Brazil leg that may or may not be continued from the first Brazil leg. There also may be the final elimination at the end of the first hour or an old fashioned finale three NEL.

Also there could just be a lot of footage from the final and they stretch it into two hours.  :duno:

A final 3 NEL wouldn't work I think, because I don't think TPTB would want a team doing a Speed Bump in the final leg.

Stock footage or a change in plans? That is not Schallaburg, it's Hohensalzburg.

This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Yeah, liked the episode, but a bit sad, that they couldn't get their castles right ...

And 12 minutes for the Schnitzel and the Sachertorte ... I'd say that would have been next to impossible for almost anybody  :lol:

Strange leg design for sure............

Schloss Schallaburg is about 80 miles west of the Vienna Airport, just off the A-1......so teams drove 80 miles to get that book, then 80 miles back to Vienna to do the Detours........then back down the same highway, the A-1 to Salzburg to do the RB and Pit Stop.

Well, how else could they had advertised the new Ford Focus and the famous back camera? :lol:
They only time we can actually see the cars is usually when the get on them at the beginning, if they had gone straight from the airport to Vienna and picked up the cars later it would't be a very effective product placement.

It gave the teams something to do in the early morning hours, spread out the field, avoided HoO and let them film the Detour during daylight hours.

Is this the first time we're at Leg 9 and still have 6 teams remaining since Season 12?

Okay i checked. This is indeed the FIRST time we still have 6 teams remaining going into Leg 9.

Only Season 7,8,9,12 and 13 had 4 teams remaining, the rest all had 5 remaining teams.

A TAR first, i think.. with the "NELs" placed on 1st, 3rd and on the 8th leg.

Not that i'm complaining.. it saved me from dying of sadness to have 3 of my favourite teams eliminated in a row. :lol:

Question -

How could Zev & Justin have passed almost every other team on the road to Salzburg without speeding?  Aren't there rules on the race that regulate speed on the roads?  I'm surprised they did not receive a penalty...

I'm also quite shocked at Zev/Justin's jump in positions. :lol:

Only if they get caught, I think.

The Austrian highway speed limit is 130 km/hr, which is about 80 m/hr.  Justin seemed comfortable driving at that speed.  Also, several other teams seemed to have more difficulty with navigation.

BTW, i like the fact that teams got to self-drive AND take public transport this leg!

What i didn't like was the RB seemed... LAME.

The Detour, one side was very pointless.. while the other side seemed impossible to complete. I know, the point is to completely mislead a team, but still.. that was unnecessary.

Guess we can't have the best of both worlds.

I would have liked a bit more about getting into the sweep costume, getting up on the roof, who was ahead/behind....

But product placement uses up a LOT of our precious 42 minutes. I get the need for it, really I do...but still....SIGH.

At least they got them to get a clue from the back mirror of the car.. which was interesting as Gary and Mallory fumbled and it seemed they never got their lead back again.. until at the Detour they were 3rd to get the clue but got into trouble again.

Snapple + Ford cars.

I thought Ford belongs to AMERICAN IDOL? What's it doing on TAR. :lol:

What I got from this episode and others is that the cowboys not only have bad navigation, they drive really slow.  :lol:
Justin went flying by them on the way to Salzburg.

I agree the RB was lame and I don't understand why it was after the detour and I would have rather seen another KRL. That really would have shook them up.  :snicker:

I think Ford's presence is a good sign, actually. The Ford Focus is a next-generation sort of vehicle with the hybrid power and high tech features, so it would appeal to the TAR demographic.

As least the product placement was actually related to having a clue that the teams had to solve; notice how teams had problems reading the letters for the location backwards. A legitimate clue (of which we had a few this leg.)

I'm really sorry but  this  episode  was pretty boring, especially the  chimney sweeps task  and Freud's one  :groan:


In This season most of the tasks are boring.. :( .I think the production has some budget problems..... :'(
Hoping they  bring  back the old amazing race, with breathtaking, fun and unique  tasks......
They  worse every year

There have been a handful of legs where Racers are told outright that they must maintain a speed of less than X for safety reasons, and Production will penalize them if they go over that X. But most of the time, it is indeed 'go as fast as you feel is prudent' and we have seen teams getting pulled over for speeding (and I think getting tickets) in previous Races.
