Quote from: caper

Okay, bear with me all :   With the first set of screen caps I was leaning towards an art museum as the location for the muscle task.  Now I am thinking it is at a hotel ballroom.  I think it may be at The Conrad in brussels.  I haven't found a direct  pic of the stage but I've come across some other pics of the conrad ballroom and there are other paintings on walls that look similar to the one on the stage, and the style of the walls looks the same.  Trying to set up link but having problems .... Will keep trying!

Caper
here is a picture of the Conrad hotel ballroom but I don't know if this is it. The chairs don't match.
It's picture 14

Also, a question: Aren't they going to Ghent? It's this episode or the next? Because the task could also be in Ghent.

 :lol:  it's not a painting, but rather a Flemish Tapestry (a piece of thick textile fabric with pictures or designs formed by weaving colored weft threads or by embroidering on canvas) which are plentiful in Belgium.  Could be anywhere.   :(

No Doubt!! Slowhatch gets it!! Awesome!

AND it is in Brussels...

So...let's take bets. Do we see anything in Ghent? A RI at the Castle? Or do they just wave from the train? :lol:

Episode 9 has the following:

at least one task in Copenhagen
travel Copenhagen to Billund
at least one task in Billund
transportation from Billund to Hamburg and Hamburg to Ghent

I don't see how there will be room for anything else in episode 9. I strongly agree with Dom El. Major Ghent tasks will be in episode 10.

apskip,

Slowhatch proved that the Detour is in Brussels.

I know I've said this before, but doesn't anyone else agree that this speedo exhibitionist task a bit... much?

Again, either a sign of desperation for ratings or creating thinking (who am I kidding, it's just not right)

anyway I've read in the previous article that it's a detour, so teams have a choice between it or something else, they pick speedos. I guess the other one must have been hugely time absorbing

P.S I know I've been obsessing over this whole exhibitionist thing, I guess it's because I know families with kids that watch TAR and when I think about them watching this episode... .... ... yeah, you get what I mean

It does surprise me to see how TINY those bikini bottoms are, but I'm not offended by it.  The racers seem pretty relaxed and even enjoying themselves!  I do wonder how much will have to be blurred for the censors....

I don't have a problem letting my 7-year-old daughter watch it.  I did spend a lot of time in Europe as a child, so I am probably less inclined to think of skin as scandalous.

In pic 19, is that a plane ticket?

It must be a train because I don't think there is any flying on this episode. Cindy said they had a four hour lead but lost their ticket. I guess they end up bunched with everyone else.

Could they have really been 4 hours ahead of Bill and Cathy at the Pit Stop last leg? It didn't seem like it. Or does she mean something else?

@ Mack: Maybe they gained a lead by performing the previous tasks well. :duno:

This confessional clip confirms that there is a resting point (may not be a Pit Stop) at the Atomium!  On the other hand, the clip could be from the end of the leg that airs on November 27th.

So, it's not just a walk up a finish easily task. I wonder how many points they need, maybe at least 15?

I wonder if Andy and Tommy were about to get a high score and that is why the clip cut off, so we would not know they are in first.

It looks like that despite the first two tasks, everyone will be bunched on mid-leg transport and this silly judged task will determine the order. :groan: Poor leg design.

I believe Cindy says in the video that they need 12 points from the judges to pass.

This clip of Ernie & Cindy at the Atomium occurred close to 4:00 am on July 7th when we found the tweet about Race activities there.

I'm going to say that was the Pit Stop of the second part of racing in Belgium.  So we will see this Pit Stop on November 27th.



It's easier to fit the Panama leg and the Finish into July 7th to July 10th.  I can't fit in an additional Belgium leg into that!
