From the Foxtel EPG:

"The remaining teams make their way to Europe and the vibrant city of Amsterdam before heading to the Czech Republic, and friendships among teams start to splinter as the prize gets nearer".

TV GUIDE: The remaining teams make their way to Europe and the vibrant city of Amsterdam. The first challenge, to eat two traditional apple doughnuts, seems simple enough, but can everyone stomach the local delicacies? In the Czech Republic, friendships among teams start to splinter as the prize gets nearer. One team makes it clear their intentions are on the prize and not maintaining the relationships they've built up, but will it come back to haunt them? Then, some teams struggle to find the key to a damsel's heart, while delivering a princess to her castle tests the strength of others.

Looks like find the damsel and transporting the princess are the two Detours, and either the ice hockey or the archery is a Road Block, with the other being a standard Route Info.

I'm kind of over the "weapons accuracy" tasks -- breaking tiles in Macau, the knopkieries in Port Elizabeth, guns last night, and archery this week is Too Damn Many.

And all of them were optional.

Whether they're optional or not is irrelevant. Four tasks testing the same skill in four consecutive episodes is ridiculous. If we were to have four brute-force "carry this heavy object over there" challenges in four episodes, everyone would be complaining. Same with four needle-in-a-haystack challenges. This is no different.

I see what you mean, but still all are relevant to the locale and don't detract at all from the episode. So far, this series has been wonderful, but the elimination order is getting old, three tough eliminations of what I consider to be the three biggest teams personality-wise...

They are mixing their promos these last weeks.
Isn't Krakow the next leg?

Chris and Anastasia: Fly to Krakow, Poland

As for traveling to Prague by train if they start from Amsterdam is quite far. Maybe the correct is travel to Krakow by train from Prague which is much closer?

Amsterdam and Prague are definitely both this week. I'm more confused about how/where they'll be fitting in the already-confirmed Germany into the route, unless they're counting the cross-Deutschland ride as a visit.

I just checked the trains from Amsterdam to Prague.Today at least there two overnight trains, that depart around 7-8pm and arrive the next morning in Prague after 14-15 hours crossing all of Germany. So I guess it is feasible and it would suit the production to have a whole day in Prague.

I'll rather they have a leg in Netherlands and a leg in Prague, two seperate legs.

The promo contains tasks related to both Prague and Krakow, but I'll put it all here for now. I've just listed some tasks and teams that are seen together, hopefully it helps you all who can't see the video yet  :tup:.

  • Sam & Renae, Alana & Mel, Nathan & Tyler and what I presume is Dave & Kelly all boarding a train together
  • Sam & Renae struggling with a wood sawing task (similar to TARA4 Route Info in NZ) The girls seem to struggle and Anastasia begins to realise she will too. Sam then says, "And I think Anastasia watching us realised that she didn't know how she was going to do it. And him watching her break down, it was killing him". Anastasia does cry and Chris doesn't look too happy either. There are glimpses of Jeff & Luke and Nathan & Tyler performing this too
  • Mining Task - Jeff & Luke, Nathan & Tyler do this, it appears teams need to search through trolleys for something.
  • Alana & Mel and Tyler & Nathan looking for something on Charles Bridge, I assume it's a repeat of TARA2 (looking for the 'holey' statue
  • Prague Detour: Search Prague square for someone with 'a key to a damsel's heart' - Performed by Dave & Kelly, Matt & Tom OR Carry a person in thing I don't know the name of  :lol: - Performed by Alana & Mel, Chris & Anastasia and I'm pretty sure on the promo I saw on Monday night that Nathan & Tyler do this option too.
  • Roadblock - Archery? - Performed by Chris
  • Sheep herding - Sam & Renae and Chris & Anastasia seen attempting this

That's it for now, let me know if I missed something in there  :lol:

I think someone else posted somewhere that the mine in question was in Krakow.

Assuming that Poland is a separate leg from Netherlands/Czech Rep, then Jeff/Luke, Nathan/Tyler (seen in most recent promo), Sam/Renae (seen in earlier promo), and Chris/Ana (reading clue) make it to leg 7. Given the spotting of Tom/Matt in Ben Gurion, I'd wager that if there's an elim the sisters or the fogeys are biting the dust.

(Though I think that given how chaotic travel into and out of Africa can get, even between major hubs, that we might be due for an NEL again.)

The carrying task reminds me of the geisha detour from TAR9.

I'm betting on a NEL this one (I actually thought it may have been the last leg  :( ).  I think I recall at the start of the series Grant saying that there would be x number of legs and y of these were non elimination.  We have only had one, and there are 7 teams left.  Given 3 teams make the final and there is usually a NEL with 4 teams left, I think we are overdue.

Yeah and I remembered Richard saying something about 12 legs  :hearts:
