Every bit of info is useful.  Verifying that the Detour takes place in Zermatt helps to nail down that part of the leg.

it also might help us determain what time the teams got there (using the hours of the resturant) which could help us figure out whos eliminated. im also wondering does any1 have any ideas what the speed bump could b?  darn producers  (:;)

It's a huge restaurant, probably why they chose it.  The website says it's open from 8 am to midnight with the kitchen being open from 12 pm to 2 pm and 6 pm to 10 pm.  So what do people do from 8 am to 12 pm there?   :duno:

I commenter a few pages back had the same thought as me. I too find it strange that after the eating trouble from the last leg, that Z/J would do it again. Unless they were U-turned.

coffee, pastries, bistro, sandwiches, etc...the kitchen usually refers to more elaborate entrees.

Here's a slightly different press release:

Quote
AN IMPENDING DOUBLE U-TURN PUTS THE REMAINING TEAMS ON EDGE, AND ONE TEAM HAS A NIGHTMARE OF A TIME TRYING TO CONSUME A SWISS DELICACY, ON "THE AMAZING RACE," SUNDAY, APRIL 24

What's the purpose of using a specific word like nightmare?? We know it is going to be dark out when they begin, probably after 18:00 at the earliest.
Is someone there all night? The restaurant's website says they are open til midnight.  :ascared

I agree; I don't think Z/J would have chosen it again unless they were U-Turned. However I can't really think of who would U-Turn them, other than the cowboys (and a very small chance of Gary/Mallory or Kisha/Jen, I suppose...) And it could always be something like, if they weren't able to find the location of the first Detour and decided to just pick the second one. Still...I think Z/J are one of the more probable teams to get U-Turned especially with the target on their backs.

:welcome2: to RFF, El Gado!
A press release told us that there will be a W-Turn in this leg. It's somewhere in this thread.

Can't really assume that Zev/Justin came earlier. Haha. One thing for sure the cowboys are u-turned.
HOWEVER, "ONE TEAM HAS A NIGHTMARE OF A TIME TRYING TO CONSUME A SWISS DELICACY". This literally just tells us that the team that was having trouble consuming the swiss delicacy will definitely have a 95% chance of being eliminated.
Nightmare of a time = must have taken a long time to eat it. Unless someone actually screwed up really bad at the other detour, this team is sure to be sent home.

Looking at the preview, Zev/Justin really look like they're having a really bad time eating that thing.
And Justin said "Zev this is crazy". Im pretty sure he would have done the other task if he could right?
Which makes more sense that Zev/Justin & Jet/Cord are u-turned. Haha.

But who knows that after all these stressing bout whos being u-turned, in reality, kent/vyxin were the one who actually got eliminated haha!
"Im sorry to tell you that you have been eliminated from the race" is the most horrible thing to hear on TAR haha :)

Hello! new to RFF
OK this has been making me worried... how do yall know there is really a double u-turn and how do yall know that jet and cord were u-turned.
 Cord had that suit on bc that was FROM HIS CHIMNEY SWEEP road block!!! in Austria!!!  :snicker: :snicker: :snicker:
I think ANYBODY can be u-turned at this point.
top victims for u-turning:
Zev and Justin, Gallory, Jet and Cord.
JET AND CORD FTW!!!!

auburnsuperfan................there is a CBS announcement of the W Turn this week.

Also, that is a different uniform than the chimney sweep uniform. It appears that Jet/Cord have realized that it wastes time to take off the costumes they have to wear...........they can take them off at the mat.

Cant wait till Sunday. If Jet and Cord were to be last to check in..i hope it is a TBC leg but thats not likely.
I doubt Jet and Cord would struggle @ the detour(s) if they get u-turned... they are never ones to struggle or give up!
This is def. not the leg to have to lose time in! I hope Gallory, Kynt and Vyxsin or Kisha and Jen mess up somewhere to help the cowboys catch up IF! they are u-turned.
Im glad this is a DOUBLE U-turn instead of a single u-turn where it makes it a little easier on one of the teams u-turned so they arent alone and far behind.

Comparing viewpoints of this moped cap with GE, it looks like he is southwest of Eschen, traveling north.

I'm actually inclined to think like The Prophet that 'nightmare' has a meaning like that. In the previous releases they've used phrases like "a desperate plunge" and Vyxsin literally jumped into the water; "costly mistake" and Ron/Christina did get eliminated because of the mistake. But we never know. :duno:

Hmm..I have a feeling that Zev/Justin weren't victims of the W-Turn. I'm assuming Justin is frustrated, but my guess would just be because it isn't tasty. I don't think that Z/J were W-Turned by Kisha/Jen because they seem to be close on Twitter. This is probably all just wishful thinking from a Z/J fan though.

yeah that's true, but that's after the race already and that's why they are close... but they are still racing during this leg...
