That stand could be either the second detour or a route info between the RB and the detour.

I never got to locate the squid task but my gut feeling was that it was also down by Casco Viejo.

This is as disappointing as when the Cowboys were eliminated. And since when isn't a professional football player who probably makes MILLIONS of dollar as "famous" person. That would make me sick if they actually won.  Of the teams who are left, I really don't know that I will even bother watching.

We will have an AT on Plaza de la Independencia,and they will leave the plaza 2 hours before the other teams.

How Ironic, Andy and Tommy won a couple of legs because other teams made mistakes. But in the end a mistake cost them the entire race.  :groan:

This was such a great episode. I loved it.

I wish I had watched more of this season. I saw the first two or three episodes, and then the last two!

Can't wait until the finale next week. :)

I've been there a few years ago, it's definitely worth seeing as is the Panama Canal Museum.  :)
Actually all of Panama is very pretty, it has amazing wildlife & gorgeous uninhabited islands and nature reserves.  :)

As for this episode, well.. I wasn't that excited about the ending.
I wasn't a huge fan of the A & T but they were definitely the strongest team throughout and I don't think they deserved to be eliminated like they did.

The other teams were almost all equally clueless (except for one asking about the etched building which was recognized by the cabbie), they just got lucky that the cabbies talked to eachother. This was not by their own merit or else they would have been in search for Balboa avenue or statue as well I dare say.  :lol:

I don't understand why in some legs teams have to go back and get their clue right and in others - when it's passed on by cabbies - this is ok?  :duno:

Tbh I have no big favorites with the remaining three because I think the team that deserved to win most up till now is gone.  :(

ETA: I felt A& T getting eliminated might be coming since they editted other teams complaining about how strong they were, the mojo with the bad luck stones and the 'shocker' thing that was being repeated as well.

THAT WAS AN AWESOME LEG!!!! :hearts: :hearts:
Best of the season!!!
Great challenges. They were pretty hard. We saw a lot of the country, from the natives and the market to skyscrapers and touristic/historic places.
It was action packed. Big coup de théâtre at the end of the episode. Those were missing from this season I think.
Love how the final three came almost at the same time on the mat. It was pretty moving to see all six of them happy to be there. Cindy saying to J/S "I'm so happy for you guys" because they won, E/C and J/S calling A/M when they arrive at the pitstop, Marcus making a David/Goliath reference. WOW.
The taxi thing was never seen before (?). It was epic.
I really though that A/T were going to be part of the finale, but hey, they won three trips, $25,000 and two cars.
I'm routing for Ernie & Cindy, but I would be pretty happy to see any team win the race.

Has anyone else seen the facebook pace? It's just like when the cowboys were eliminated.  :res:
Why are they doing that??? :groan: Nobody cheated or anything.

As much as I like the Snowboarders, I can't defend their elimination as unfair because it was their own fault. :lol: :(

Amazing. I have to say that, as a Tintin fan, the beggining of the leg was incredible. A great "equalizing" task to begin, which, as a great Tintin fan, I loved. AND, when I went to Brussels about a year and a half ago I definitely LOVED the Atomium and that specific painting in the wall, so it was just AMAZING to get those points connected. Production deserves a prize for that.

About the leg, GREAT, one of the greatest ever. Definitely. Quite a lot of tasks and Route Markers, but it was just amazing to see so many things of the country. With no doubts, the best Central-South American leg EVER.

The winners, just got a bad luck day. And the F3 teams a lucky day, that taxi ride was just incredible, as some teams were going to the SAME place Andy & Tommy had been in, so that wasn't anything but luck. REALLY.

I loved Jeremy & Sandy winning the leg, and even though people may think they do not deserve it, I want them to get the million. Anyway, I'm happy if those Ernie & Cindy don't win, or even better; they should get 3rd place.

I was wondering if the Tintin task was related to the Steven Spielburg movie that either has just or is about to be released. I was half-expecting a reference to the film (as TAR 9 did with the DaVinci Code).

So I was surprised about the lack of mention. I will say the producers did manage to find an actor/model who could look just like Tintin, but I'm still not sure if it really had anything to do with Brussels or with Belgium. But that was a good middle-of-the-night task that slowed down the teams to a preferred flight to Panama (after the train) and gave Phil and Bert more time to get to Panama ahead of the teams.

Tintin is definitely very Belgian. When I think of Belgium I think waffles, the EU, and Tintin, all of which the race actually managed to cover. Nice!

(The EU visit was slightly contrived, a translation task between the gazillion languages the organisation uses - and has to translate on a daily basis - would be epic.)
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!
