From the TV guide:

Tonight, the teams make a mad dash for Sri Lanka to secure a place in the finale. The Detour has some teams acting fishy; while deciding which carriage to ride in on a train trip could prove costly for one team. All teams struggle with their history; but are given the opportunity to make up some lost time at a masked street parade. And a final sewing challange proves to be a disaster for all.

Hey guys! Have you read this?

http://www.perthnow.com.au/entertainment/perth-confidential/perth-set-to-star-in-the-amazing-race-australia-finale/story-e6frg30l-1226097751562

Sam & Renae were doing task in Singapore before heading to Perth. This leg were said to secure a place in the FINALE. So, it means Sam & Renae are one of our final three teams.

Note: Oh no, the statement about Renae conquers her fear of tightrope crossing was already deleted. I read that like 12 hours ago.

Oh, here is the original article.

CHANNEL Seven has confirmed that The Amazing Race: Australia ends in Perth.

Since the show was filmed last November, there have been rumours of a WA leg after Amazing Race backpacks were spotted at the airport.

After a journey taking in four continents, 12 countries and 22 other cities, three teams will race to the final pitstop on Heirisson Island, in the episode airing on Monday, August 1. The winners will collect a cheque for $250,000.

Details about the Perth tasks are sketchy, but we do know the teams will head to Fremantle Prison, and our bet is the underground tunnels will form part of the challenge.

After last night's episode in historic Israel, four teams remain in the race: WA models Sam and Renae, surfers Tyler and Nathan, father and son Jeff and Luke and cowboys Matt and Tom.

Before they get to Perth, the teams compete in Singapore where Renae is once again forced to confront her crippling fear of heights in a 55-storey tightrope crossing. If she and Sam make it through, it would give them the advantage of racing in their home town in the final.

In 2006, Perth featured in season nine of the US version of The Amazing Race. In a blow for WA tourism, contestants said it was the worst city in the world for finding a taxi.

Reasons why an all-male team might not make this leg. HOWEVER, I thought this leg is a Non-Elimination Leg as well? :duno:

Okay, I think this leg is definitely an elimination. The leg in Singapore is a mega leg and teams will fly directly to Perth afterwhich, I think.. this all fits in to a 90 minutes finale!! :jam:

Oh dear.. Singapore featured in a TAR edition finale episode for the 3rd time. :lol: (Surprising huh?)

Nathan and Tyler leaked to be in Final Three. With this, this confirms the girls are in the finale too, especially seeing that they removed the line in the article.

Here's praying that Jeff and Luke gets eliminated. Luke is <3, Jeff is... weird. :groan:

MATT AND TOM <3 Maybe they will do a hat-trick and win another leg? I think. :ascared

Promo here.

Not too much new is shown, just that Matt, Tyler and Jeff are doing the Sewing RB.

And this definitely is the penultimate leg and final elimination leg, as the promo voiceover says, "because whoever makes it through this (meaning the RB task) will running to be the first ever winner of the Amazing Race Australia".  :tup:

This looks like the pitstop to me with the big flag in the background. If this is so, it appears from the body language that they didn't not finish 1st but either 2nd or 3rd and wishing each other good luck that they beat the 30 min time penalty  :duno:

Well, yes, but you could say that about any leg, even the non-eliminations. The only way you can be taken out of the running is to be eliminated, and if it's a NEL they're all still in the running.

Sewing challenge will be second-to-last roadblock

Yield is very possible (based on TARA 4), but TBC I think not, they have greeter in Sri Lanka pitstop

I didn't know there wasn't any commentary here for you internationals, otherwise I would have done some myself :(

I'll give a run down of what happened, try to bring you all up to speed.

All teams depart, and basically there's two flights, one through Rome with a risky connection which Nathan and Tyler gamble on and one through Jordan with a big layover which Tom & Matt and Jeff & Luke take. Sam & Renae attempt to take the one through Jordan, but there's no seats so they are forced to take the one through Rome. The connection works fine and Sam & Renae and Nathan & Tyler arrive 5? hours ahead of the others.

Constant reminders of Sam & Renae's MFE penalty throughout the entire leg.


Once they land, they travel to a temple and receive a blessing and their next clue. HoO here, but it doesn't allow Matt & Tom and Jeff & Luke to catch up.

Detour: Count or Carry. Count a number of fish or carry large blocks of ice through fish market.

All teams chose carry. Sam & Renae finish the same time as Nathan and Tyler and Matt & Tom finish just before Jeff and Luke.

Then all teams take the same train to Galle. (Sam and Renae thought the train might leave before the other arrived so they could via for places 1 or 2, but sadly it didn't work out)

In Galle, teams needed to find out the year of Sri Lanka's independence from Britain and the year of some emperor's reign? I can't remember the details of what they were looking for, sorry :( Teams all complete it in the order they arrive. Surfers, models, farmers and then L/J.

Then, teams took a bus to Ambalangoda and match a mask with a dancer.
Bus #1: Models and Surfers.
Bus #2: Farmers and Father/Son

The masks are actually all similar and it looks difficult but only Matt & Tom need a second try, everyone else gets it on their first go.

Roadblock: Sew a fluro orange bowling shirt to receive your next clue.
Matt, Renae, Jeff and Tyler do it.

On the way to the RB, Sam & Renae and Tyler & Nathan take an unauthorized taxi... which spells PENALTY!

They all struggle, with Matt struggling the most. Renae seems fairly good and gets it done well before the boys.

Pitstop: Independence Square.

Sam and Renae breeze ahead....however they incur a 20 min penalty for the taxi being unregistered.

Tyler finishes the RB next, they head to the pitstop and also incur the 20 min penalty.

Sam & Renae's penalty is over, they are the first team and their MFE penalty does NOT count. They're team #1, the first team in the finale racing for the $250K. They also win a $5000 Bing Lee home entertainment system.

Nathan & Tyler's penalty expires, they check in 2nd.

Jeff & Luke's Tuk tuk stops to be repaired....

Two shadows cross the ground of the temple...

Jeff & Luke check in 3rd, they're the last team to arrive that will continue into the finale leg of the race.

Matt & Tom arrive last and are eliminated..

Next week: Tight ropes, Singapore flyer and a finish line!  :hearts: I'm so excited!

I have to wait until this episode is online to view it, but I'm glad to read that Matt/Tom were eliminated. Best of luck to the remaining 3 teams! All of them deserve their spot and I will be happy with whoever wins.
