Question: what are the chances of one of the India legs being a KRL (Keep Racing Leg)?
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

You completely misinterpreted the question. KRL = Keep racing leg not Kerala. Kerala is a state, in which Cochin is a city, sort of like Chicago is a city in Illinois.

Pretty good I would think.

We need one more leg to have a team not eliminated.

So Cochin would be a good placement choice for a NEL or a TBC/KRL.

India 2 would then be an elimination, either V/R or Mark/Bopper go.

Japan would then also be an elim with the other of those two teams going.

Leaving us our known final 3.

Another is US Army Barracks at Hickam Field.

There may be barracks at Hickam, but Schofield Barracks is Army, Hickam is Air Force, Pearl Harbor is Navy, though Hickam and Pearl Harbor have recently been designated a joint base.

Hickam and Pearl Harbor would have more of a recognized historical reference to Americans who lived in that time or studied the period.
Some of the world-wide popular fiction of the beginnings of World War II focused more on Hickam and Pearl than Schofield. Reference: Herman Wouk's The Winds of War/War and Remembrance (novels and TV miniseries 1983-88) and the film Pearl Harbor (2001). I doubt though that Pearl would be used as a finish line because of the USS Arizona memorial, although it might be used (TAR 4 Phoenix went back the Arizona USS Arizona memorial near the state capitol headed toward the finish). Hickam, though might make sense for a secluded finish mat or for a task of some kind.

Edited to add: I meant to mention that the last new episode of Hawaii Five-O last week had a wide angle helicopter shot of the area of Oahu where the twin condo towers are located. It was obvious that they were the same place we had spoiler pics from because there was nothing else in that area with twin towers like that.

I doubt that there will be a KRL leg this season. Trains in India are VERY DANGEROUS at night and taxis are not safe either. More likely

a) Mark & Bopper quit the roadblock and are eliminated or NELed and then eliminated in the second leg
b) Mark & Bopper do not quit the roadblock but are last and survive for one leg thanks to an NEL and goes.
c) Or they survive and Vanessa/Ralph eliminated in India 2 and they get eliminated in Japan
d) or vice versa

than again, it's my speculation.

I would go back and look at the early season visits to India. In TAR 1 and TAR 4, teams did travel overnight on trains and in taxis, so I don't think that will be the determative factor. The show has usually done double-length legs or no length pit stops in locations where they are able to have a sufficient number of tasks for both legs, and India is certainly capable of providing such conditions. The real question is whether the overall pacing of this Race requires it, and given the single leg in Baku and the double legs in Tanzania, there's been a lot of time spent traveling long distances, so it certainly is a possibility. But I don't think we'll know until we see the episode on Sunday.

Huh! Cochin is a large city and metropolitan area in the province of Kerala. Since it is part of it, it indeed couldn't be closer.

No worries sweetie. :kuss: I like that you are looking!!

We need LOTS of helpers on these unspoiled legs, the more eyes the better!

Final 3 pics here: http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,26453.50.html

Thanks

isnt there still a chance that V/R or M/B make the final 3 because of the spoiler-preventing the race does? I think that i saw an interview with carol and brandy saying that they ran the first half of the season 16 finale, and then left when J/C and D/J started carrying the trunks and headed to candlestick park...

also the race has got strict on spoilers. Im being optimistic but couldn't art and jj or davechel or brenchel just be decoys? and are there any other examples of decoys in the final 3?

Optimistic is too weak a term; wishing for the highly improbable is what you are. Yes, any of the 3 teams most people believe will be the F3 could be running decoy in the final leg. However, more than one of them doing so would be without precedent. You appear to be a Mark and Bopper fan along with a lot of other RFF members. They are not out yet, but for a variety of reasons their chances of winning are very slim. You have about 3 Sundays to get used to it.

CBS has posted summaries for their upcoming season finales and The Amazing Race summary is interesting:

"SUNDAY, MAY 6

8:00-10:00 PM THE AMAZING RACE – After traveling five continents, 22 cities and nearly 40,000 miles, the series’ 20th installment concludes in a special two-hour season finale as the final four Teams race through Japan and onto Honolulu where one Team will win the $1 million prize.  Hosted by Phil Keoghan. (Two Hours)"

It certainly seems that the final team will be eliminated in Japan. Not sure if this has been mentioned yet.

Yes, that has been posted, thanks.

This is a cap from TAR20 intro, which I'm guessing is Hawaii, do we have a location genius that can track this exact location down?? It could be important  :duno:

I am a Mark and Bopper fan, no denying!  :lol:

but i am also interested in the whole decoy subject... when do teams start running decoys? how do we know if they are fake or not? do they even exist? do they run full legs or just do a few tasks? i would love the answers to these questions!

They did that in season 18 as well and it caused the same confusion then. They need to work on their wording :lol:
