Oh, for me, I always thought it was the opposite. In the beginning, if I saw a "Next week on The Amazing Race" and there was a team struggling, they wouldn't be eliminated the next leg.  :duno: my memory isn't the best.....

I used to think so too but last year they did seem to give clues in the preview. For example Luke's struggle with the tea, Mike's issue in Japan, Zev struggling with the samba, and the Cowboys' Double U-turn. However these clues may have only been apparent to some.
Physics alone is not enough.

Those who forget history are sure to repeat it.

It is interesting to note that last season, when a team was shown to be in trouble during the preview, that team usually ended up being eliminated...

it was super emphasized during the pre cowboys elimination previews.  i think they did that to us bc most ppl were expecting the cowboys to go further.

That was the case in TAR 17 too, Michael struggling with the roadblock in Russia and Mallory's prayer in Oman. I think that happenned with Mika and Canaan  too (well Mika's meltodwn was the highlight of that season, how are you not going to show that in the preview).

Okay, so seeing as I'm in Yogyakarta right now, and not sure if I'll be here after Episode 2 comes out (I did the same train journey as the teams, Gambir, Jakarta to Tugu, Jogja! The trains were really luxurious..), I figured I'd try and see some of the locations we know about already. I failed spectacularly.

I aimed for all the locations in Legs 2 & 3 that were in the immediate vicinity of Yogyakarta:

2 detour locations in Leg 2, both on Malioboro.
Leg 2 Pit Stop: Sultanate Palace.
Leg 3 Route Info: the bird market.

The last two are inside the Kraton, which as I found out, closes at midday. I'll try again tomorrow though!

For the parking detour, first I found the spot where the photo below was taken:




There were at least 6 or 7 guys working the 'parking lot' (actually just a regular sidewalk with scooters everywhere) wearing the same uniform that Laurence and Zac are wearing above. However, not one of them could understand English, so I was unable to find out who was in charge or where the head office of this operation was.

Next, only about 500m down the road is the spot where this photo was taken:




There was nothing nearby that would have offered anything like the dancing on a regular basis, so that too was a dead end.

Not my best day of detecting! Here's hoping tomorrow's visit to Kraton will be more fruitful.

(As a side note, the first post of the 'Timeline' thread states that the Sunderlands were seen performing this dance task, yet we also see them parking, so I guess they must have switched detours.)

Oh LOVE This!!

 :ty banzai!

FWIW, the timeline is in process of being updated, hopefully by today, so there may be a few minor changes.

I don't know if everyone remembers but Jomblang is a vertical cave and rappelling is the only way in. I was assuming that cap 3 is the way they are getting out as opposed to using a rope and ascenders.
They have some kind of gong set up down there (fwiw it looks a lot like this one: http://www.fotosearch.com/SIX010/ina-069/) and there seems to be a mask involved as well. I'm not sure if the Ethan and Jenna crawling pic goes with that task because it is supposed to be the Roadblock. It also doesn't even look like a cave, but more like crawling under a building.
Does anyone know where they are?

That looks similar to a task in New Zealand in TAR 2. (Remember Oswald and Danny freak out in the cave?)

In the TV promo at least 3 teams can be seen running by the Wisma Hidayah hotel on Jl Augus Salim. So it would seem teams are approaching the  nearby pitstop (Kraton) from the west.

It's funny but it seems that CBS can't decide about the title of the episode. In the schedule and the TAR web page is the SPRINT of our lives but in the press release photos is the SPIRIT of our lives.

Maybe they've given the episode title job to the intern again! Did anyone see TAR's Facebook page during Season 18? I know I can be picky about spelling and grammar, but that was just ridiculous to the point of embarrassing!

I think we see the reason teams were spotted going to and going away from the Pit Stop.

The obvious mistake they made was to not give all their own money to the orphanage.   (:;)

This would cause a serious shuffling in the order of Teams finishing the leg.  The ones that read the clue carefully get to pass the leaders who did not.

BINGO!

It's probably all the mistakes the preview is referring to.
