That's why I think this leg could be a TBC. They wouldn't have time for a confessional at the end of this leg in that case. I'm not sure why else they would save up the questions.
With the odd structure of this leg it would also make sense.

Phil told us at the beginning there were 12 legs this time, if TPTB are compressing the rest period, they might bring back the no rest period pit stop which gives us two legs and doesn't make Phil a liar.

Last year they acted like the TBC's were two separate legs.

If the bodybuilding challenge is the only challenge before the Pit Stop, then I certainly hope that this is a TBC - otherwise someone is going to possibly be eliminated because they can't pose! :res:

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?

Maybe Ernie & Cindy arrived just on time to board the first train to Germany, while the rest stayed in Denmark for the following one. After the ticket loss, they can't go in the first train to Belgium, thus waiting for the rest of teams?

I think they drive to Hamburg and get on the overnight train there. 

So the train is from Hamburg to Brussels.

I am not too worried the order of the next two eliminations but as long as it is Ernie&Cindy and
Bill&Cathi - the latter for U-turning Laurence and Zac.

So with teams being spotted at the Atomium on the 6th July and then Atlanta on the 10th July, it seems very unlikely that we have time for a second Belgium leg and a Panama leg in between.

I think its pretty clear what we have instead. Teams will make their way to Parc Elisabeth (guess) on the afternoon of the 6th only to be told to keep racing. This will send them out to Ghent and potentially Lommel for Leg 10 before coming back to the Atomium for the true Pit Stop. They started counting TBC legs separately as of last season, so I'm betting that's what we have here in Belgium.

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

This is nothing... It's a body building competition.  They are in swimsuits.  If they were pole dancing it might be a different story.  Now, have you seen the video for the song 'I'm Sexy & I know it'?  Compared to that video, this is simply a walk in the park. LOL

Well, the Route Info should go before the Detour.

Again, thanks for these posts! :D

Already covered the second Belgium leg question yesterday!   :tup:

I know the promo said the "Amazing Race Express" goes from Denmark to Germany to Belgium but I think they self drive into Hamburg Germany from Legoland. 

It's not a train from Denmark.   :knuckles:

IF the Detour is performed by Amani & Marcus at 10.10 PM, I don't think it's a TBC if Ernie & Cindy have a confessional at night in the Atomium.

I mean, if they were told to keep racing, go to Ghent, complete tasks and get back to Brussells' Atomium for a Pitstop next leg, definitely it wouldn't be at night.

Isn't it possible it is 10:10 AM ?  They have alot to do between the pitstart and the muscle in Brussells.

10:10 am makes sense when you remember that they have arrived on an over-night train.
