I have to admit that my theory falls apart if the Butter is better assumption does not hold.   :lol:

So, farmers, Bill & Cathi could have only done Bunnies and be on their way.

But that starts a chain reaction of logic that goes like:

We have to pick from these Teams to get the "Don't steal our 1st place" U-Turn from Ernie & Cindy:  not Tommy & Andy who only do Butter (because we never see them in a bunny lane)

1)  Marcus & Amani, MIA, no way they are right behind Ernie & Cindy
2)  Laurence & Zac
3)  Jeremy & Sandy, way last, it's not going to be them

So by process of elimination, it would be that Ernie & Cindy U-Turn Laurence & Zac (again, this is the result if the Butter is Better assumption does not hold).

But the way it bugs me is that Marcus & Amani are doing their bunny ahead of Laurence & Zac.  And if Laurence & Zac were doing Butter right there with Ernie & Cindy then they should not be still doing Bunny lane construction at 1:35 pm.  Remember, we have Ernie & Cindy finishing back in Copenhagen at 12:06 pm.

It just does not add up!

I'm putting my foot down:  Ernie & Cindy U-Turn Bill & Cathi    :lol:

Butter is Better you can count on that!   :jam:

It would add up if Laurence and Zac are the second team Uturned. Here's how I see it:

1. L/Z, E/C, A/T, and maybe A/M and maybe J/S choose Butter while B/C and one of J/S and A/M do as well

2. Ernie and Cindy Uturn either Jeremy and Sandy or Amani and Marcus (whichever one did Butter with them)

2. That team Uturns Laurence and Zac b/c they are late to the Detour or do bad at it

3. Laurence and Zac are in last

3. Laurence and Zac are in last

Let me play devil's advocate.
 IF Ernie/Cindy uturned Jeremy/Sandy, then we would have seen at least a race course set up for them, and we didn't.  And if in turn, Jeremy/Sandy uturned Zac/Laur., J/S would have been at the bunny task before Z/L, not after.  The caps were pretty clear in showing only 3 bunny lanes set up.  So I can't see how uturning Jeremy/Sandy would fit.
IF E/C uturned Marcus/Amani, that would make more sense...BUT  why were they at the bunny task so late if they were just behind E/C ?  I can't imagine that course took almost 2  hours to set up, which is what it would be if they were there at 1:30ish and E/C were at the pitstop at noonish.

Neither way is possible because:

Jeremy & Sandy are going away from the Bunny cages without having done any Bunny work and at a time that is after Marcus & Amani have finished doing the Bunny hop.
Marcus & Amani are doing the Bunny hop at 1:35 pm (Ernie & Cindy do the U-Turn at 30 to 40 minutes prior to 12:06 pm, that would be 11:26 to 11:36 am).  It would not take Marcus & Amani 2 hours to set up the Bunny Steeplechase.

littlewop, you beat to it! :lol:

Those times seem awfully suspect since all teams were supposedly equaled at the HOO at the tower.


So on the previous page we deduced that Marcus/Amani probably didn't even get out of Lilongwe with everyone else. (Why they didn't is anyone's guess!)

Their fastest alternative routes (through Amsterdam) would probably be these two:
Lilongwe to Nairobi (1315-1625) to Amsterdam (2230-0540) to Copenhagen (either 0655-0820 or 0810-0930)
Lilongwe to Johannesburg (0905-1125) to Lagos (1540-2040) to Amsterdam (2220-0610) to Copenhagen (0810-0930)

For all we know, they might make it to the tower just before it opens, if it opens at 10am!


Even if it opens at 9AM they would not be that far behind.

Thanks for the 'welcome' Prophet, though I'm feeling a bit dizzy now... both from the welcome and all the speculations.  LOL

I think the times are solid.  It's a really good shot of the wristwatch and and the 12:06 pm comes from the person who took the picture.

I learned that Vor Frelsers Kirke  opened at 7:30 am for the Racers. 

So the drama is going to be how they manage to catch up and actually pass Laurence & Zac and Jeremy & Sandy.

And my gut reaction is that Zac has two left feet.

Every cap means something...I think CBS gave us who has two left feet.



Sorry I missed the fun, great discussion! :jumpy:

Bill and Cathi getting U-Turned? Pics or it didn't happen.

I seriously do hope this is not true, but yeah, since its once again an insider info (maybe? *sigh*) then I gotta trust it.

just wondering, what if Bill and Cathi didn't U-turn someone else? Will they be the last?

Phil's bored at the pitstop obviously... maybe because after the first 3 teams who checked in, he needed to wait hours for the next 3 to arrive. :lol:
