Since there was no RB in Leg 2, it will be interesting just how TPTB set the upper limit for this race. Three RBs to go.

This is not the place for finale discussions (although Mallory knows exactly when the May 8 finale is! :lol: ).

 :(  :ascared  :'(    Is that a   :boot:  :spoiler: ??????

No no no no no no!!!!!  :pity

Oh for heavens' sake. No, ALL the racers have finale events, May 8 has been a confirmed date for some time.

And I HATE you all for making me move stuff!! :neener:

The Special Thanks for this ep mentioned Mammut Switzerland. They make alpine clothes and rescue gear (but not tripod pulleys, it seems).

Mammut has extensive products and services, more than just those. They have 5 different types of Alpine schools. In addition to alpine clothes and rescue gear, they make and sell:
Footwear
Ropes
Climbing Gear
Backpacks
Sleeping Sytems
Headlamps

Beyond that, they provide avalanche rescue services.

I cannot figure out which of the above were used in the just-telecast episode, although I can imagine how several of them might be involved in the next episode telecast.

"Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen (Switzerland)" - Teams brave bone-chilling temperatures as they come face-to-face with the world famous Matterhorn, and tempers flare in the most intense argument of the season, on THE AMAZING RACE, Sunday, May 1 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  Phil Keoghan is host.

These are always slightly different, I don't know why:

Thanks for the episode descriptions Prophet.  I can't really find out anything from what we saw on the preview except useless things like the company that makes the industrial chocolate warmer.  The footage seems to have been edited in a few spots?   Vyxsin looks like she had done a lot at one point and at another point it looks like she has just started?

Does anybody have an idea who these two are?

I'm guessing it's kisha and jen because of the red/black outfit but their skin appears light (or not, I can't really tell)

The lighting is very strange in those shots...it will be hard to judge tones...

There are two race teams in the third photo, maybe even 3.....I would suspect they are Kisha/Jen in foreground and Flight Time/Big easy in the middle. They both seems to be taller than the cameraman/soundman. Cant tell in the far background. Kent and Vyxsin do the crevasse. It is a strength task. Gary could probably haul up Mallory easier then them hiking up the snowfield........

Seems to be pretty early in the morning and the light is very flat.

Well if the Matterhorn is the location of the detour options (or at least one of them), then the detour comes first. The promo says something along the lines of things heat up after descending on the mountains.

The clock behind BE looks to me as if it is around 2p.m. Can anybody see it better?
In one of the first caps we see the sun a little above the mountain tops, so based on this two pictures I would say they go early in the morning on the mountain for the detour and then later in the day back in town for the RB.

I suspect that they may have left the Zermatt area in order to get to the chocolate-block location.  They are all bunched together in the kitchen at one time, probably due to either hours of operation for the kitchen, or transportation issues getting there.

It would be odd to see a second roadblock as the secondary task after they refused to do that for the W-Turn. It would also be odd if all teams were bunched after doing the Detour, making the elimination rely mostly on roadblock performance.
However if they must take the chocolate gnome to the Pitstop then it would probably have to be last.

The pitstop does not have to be anywhere in the Zermatt area. It could be anywhere along the route to the Zurich airport.

In image #21 you can see the name of an artisan chocolate manufacturer - Felchlin on one of the chocolate warming pans.

Their production facility is in Schwyz...
Gotthardstrasse 13
6438, Schweiz

I have researched the location of the 35 largest Swiss chocolate manufacturers in Switzerland (there was a French company that snuck into the list I was working from, but that is not within my rules). What I found was that boston_jen may well be correct about where the chocolate task is located. Here is what I found:

the largest number (4) is in Basel
there are a few in Geneva (3)
there are many scattered all around Switzerland
there are none near Zermatt (the closest appears to be Nestle several hours away by train or car in Vevey)
there are 3 in Zurich and 3 in its suburbs, making it the highest concentration

I believe that based on this information, the pit stop for episode 10 is likely to be in the Zurich area or maybe the Geneva area. Basel is out due to the extra time to reach there and the plane schedules being inferior to Zurich.

Another good point: Zurich is a very good international aiport, and because they are flying all the way to Rio de Janeiro, that would be a playing factor.

Well, yes it could be any of those chocolate makers - but its probably Felchin, the chocolate maker I noted in my previous post. They are using their equipment... just saying...
Or you could just ignore what I posted and keep looking...
