It does make me wonder what would production due if racers were robbed of travel documentation (as opposed to just losing them)?  As Tar ever had racers robbed of important things like that, or even money before?

They have security teams to stop that sort of thing, don't they?

I mean, a lot of teams have left their packs unattended in places a lot busier than an overnight train, yet they've still been right where they left them upon returning.

I'm thinking the production team knows who has taken them (they're still on the train) and let Nathan and Tyler gets freaked out first before confronting the guys who took them? Could that happen? Drama drama...

Of course, I'm hoping they lose them.. they're my least favourite team of the lot. :snicker: :snicker: :snicker:

If they're eliminated in this leg, then it's going to be a bad way to be eliminated.. :snicker:

ACTIVE ROUTE MARKER/DETOUR: Wood cutting
EVIDENCE: Promo

ACTIVE ROUTE MARKER/DETOUR: Sheep herding
EVIDENCE: Promo
Seems like they're doing the same task as in TAR Asia again: :groan:
The 'wood cutting' task looks same as TARA 4 Leg 6 task...
The 'sheep herding' task looks same as TARA 4 Leg 7 'Pen' Detour task...

CMIIW :)

A robbery happened once in the Brazil version of the race.

Quote
Notably, in Leg 6, while driving to the pit stop, Andréa & Luciana were held up at gunpoint by three men at a stoplight in Fortaleza. The team did not lose anything, but the criminals took the camera and all personal documents from the crew, and ran off as gunshots were fired by the police. Two of the men were later caught and identified, and the camera was recovered. This incident dropped the team from 4th to last place, and no time credit was given for the situation.

And it sucked because they finished last in that leg (but were not eliminated)

The quote is from Wikipedia...

I would have called off the entire leg if that had happened.

Wow, that's just scary...

I hope that Tyler & Nathan are eliminated due to this incident, as they have been the only team I did not like in this race, and that was due to the U-Turn on Leg 4.

From 7's TV Guide:

Quote
The teams fight fatigue and have to keep racing without a rest stop. While on board a train for Poland, one team is robbed of their money and passports. Is it game over? Then, teams head underground in one of the world's oldest salt mines, while herding sheep proves frustrating for some, and the final challenge will end disastrously for more than one team.

The final Challenge ending disastrously for MORE THAN ONE team? ???

Why? No offense, if I was on the race. I would have U-turned Richard & Joey also...

i doubt there will be any U-Turns in this leg, maybe some team members quit the final challenge(roadblock) and goes for the 4 hour penalty

Don't get me wrong guys, I am a HUGE believer in using the U-Turn, as long as you use it for the right reasons, not out of spite or dislike of somebody. Since Richard & Joey had finished in the Bottom Three in every leg other than their Fast Forward, I didn't consider them to be "threats", and since Tyler & Nathan were in second place at the time, a U-Turn would've been better suited against someone who had been finishing high, such as Sam & Renae, even though I love that team too!

Anyways, getting back on the topic of this current leg, does anyone know whether there will be any more countries in Europe other than Poland? We're supposed to have 12 countries if I remember correctly, and we currently have visited six (Australia, Indonesia, China, South Africa, Netherlands, Czech Republic). Adding Poland, Israel and Sri Lanka onto that pile gives us nine, which leaves me wondering what the other three are. Am I missing any?

Germany had a ride through on the train. I believe they are counting this.

^Correct, at least for the purposes of the ads. I wouldn't be surprised if they enter Israel through Egypt, though, given how the media seems to be reporting that as a country on the route. (And since it was filmed before Mubarak got overthrown, and the country's still not that safe, they chose to list Germany as the 12th country instead because they had the chance?)

Vietnam and Singapore are also missing from that leg.

Wasn't there a pic of the surfers in the mine with Sam/Renae? If so, then the passport drama is resolved fairly quickly.

I'm not sure. I definitely recall seeing Jeff & Luke in the mine, and Sam & Renae too, but I'm not sure if the Surfers were there... :duno:

I'll be updating via iPad tonight, so my bits and pieces may be shorter than normal. If anybody wants to help tonight feel free to use these tips:

-Longer posts help our international friends get more of the experience from the show. Try to keep a running guide of what is happening, instead of posting a one off about something.
-Using quotes when racers say something funny or interesting always helps.
-If your fingers and/or wrists are sore by the end, it means you've done a good job. :lol:
