I'll do it.  :tup:

For tonight's episode i'm going with El_Chileno, i think it's NEL and we'll see Ale & Eze or Rosy & Monica in last place and with a Speed Bump for the next leg. I think the winner of the leg is between Felipe & Alejandro and Demi & Maxi. Do you remember when Harris posted the team's order for the airport?, those 2 teams were at the top.

Look at this, i'ts interesting:

http://www.lapatilla.com/site/2011/09/23/22-personas-comienzan-un-extremo-periplo-por-latinoamerica-en-the-amazing-race/

It says that the distance traveled from the starting line to the finish line is 11.000 km.

If that's the case i don't think we are going to see Central America or Mexico this season.

But in this publication: http://impreso.milenio.com/node/9029824

it says 23.000 kilometres and 11 cities visited, which one do we have to trust?

Also, we should talk about it on the Spoilers page, and talk only about what we see on TV  in this page!

Probably the funniest pit stop ever... sadly, it's also the worst intro ever.

The leg wasn't what i expected it to be, but it was a good episode overall.

Teams i like:
*Nicolás & Cristóbal
*Toya & Juan del Mar
*Mónica & Rosy
*Rick & Kathy

Teams i dislike:
*NONE


The leg was too short compared to previous starting legs, but i think it will be a good season. What i liked is the introduction of the Express Pass and that it was a double lenght leg and there was a speed bump for the last team too, it was cool.

This was such a funny pit stop and the footrace for last was awesome, the bad thing is that there wasn't a NEXT TIME ON THE AMAZING RACE... Agree with one of the WORST INTROS EVER!

I have to say this was faaar better than the premiere of the second season. Yeah it's low budget but the editing was wayyy better and the cast is interesting. The only problem i have is that the tasks were very physical.

I don't like that the venezuelan girls have to do a Speed Bump. The cowboys and the goths last season are the perfect example, they got last but without having to do a Speed Bump the next leg. The producers made a weird hybrid penalty.

I like it. It makes it seem more like two seperate legs with no break in between. I don't like how it's the first leg, because these new racers don't know what to expect as opposed to the returning racers who were surprised to keep racing.

I've never seen a teflon pitstop mat before.

I didn't like it either. They shouldn't have been penalized since this wasn't a pitstop. Nobody got penalized in the previous 2 seasons when they arrived last in the 12nd episode. On Facebook, a supposed producer gave a very lame response to that saying there weren't speed bumps because it was the final and they wanted all 3 teams to stay close from each other.

First of all, i don't think we are talking about the same kind of leg.

On seasons 1 & 2, it were double-lenght legs, last team to arrive on a double lenght leg is never eliminated, or penalised or something, it was one leg divided in two parts. And on season 3 it was a no-break leg, two different legs without a break between them, and since they are two separate legs, they can either don't penalize the teams, give them a speed bump or even eliminate them.
