Previously on The Amazing Race...

Marcus burned rubber at the roadblock. And goes crazy.

Jeremy & Sandy waffled. :lol3:

Andy & Tommy pedalled ahead.

Ernie & Cindy lost first and Andy & Tommy got first. Bill & Cathi got eliminated. :(

Some cool camera shots of Phil introducing the Atonium... Teams got to sleep in the Atonium. :lol: And Andy & Tommy got to customize their Mustang. (:;)

Andy & Tommy depart at... oops. I missed it. Teams must dress up as two characters from Tintin (Tommy was carrying a box with the costume). Then they have to solve a riddle... Andy & Tommy are asking people who they were... at 4:00 AM. That'll work.

Jeremy & Sandy depart at 4:20 AM. Sandy: "You like me as a man?" Jeremy thinks Sandy is a darn hot man. :lol3:

Ernie & Cindy depart at 4:35 AM. They're concerned with starting strong but then failing before the pit stop.

Andy or Tommy might have gotten the title. Someone thought they were in Charlie Chaplin.

Jeremy & Sandy and Ernie & Cindy both got told who they were. Andy & Tommy think they're Charlie Chaplin.

Amani & Marcus depart at 4:40 AM. Oh shut up with the football references already. :groan: YOU ARE NOT GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL. :groan: Amani is hysterically laughing at Marcus' mustache.

Amani & Marcus found out all the info too.

Jeremy & Sandy found Tintin and got all the info correct. They're currently in 1st. Teams have to travel to Amsterdam and then go to Panama City, Panama. Then travel to Parara Paru.

Ernie & Cindy... Cindy talked about how they were the stupid detectives but Tintin was the smart detective. :lol:

Andy & Tommy failed and thought they were Charlie Chaplin. They have to find out who they are.

Amani & Marcus got the clue too. They're travelling with Ernie & Cindy to the airport. They're talking about how Andy & Tommy aren't invincible.

They're looking for taxis. Andy & Tommy are the first ones to get a taxi.

Jeremy & Sandy got the 2nd taxi. Ernie & Cindy got the 3rd taxi and Amani & Marcus got the last taxi.

Marcus & Amani got some bad luck rocks...? They wanted to give it to Andy & Tommy. :lol:

Wow it's like pitch dark. They have to go get into a boat and travel to the village. Andy & Tommy and Jeremy & Sandy are neck-in-neck. Ernie & Cindy and Amani & Marcus are together.

Teams slept in hammocks with mosquito nets. Their tattoo is sending them to the San Francisco Bay Towers.

Jeremy & Sandy are getting their tattoos.

Marcus is giving a pep talk to Ernie & Cindy. They've gotten their towers.

All teams got taxis to the towers. Andy & Tommy arrive first. Roadblock! Walk a tightrope 35 stories high. I've always wondered what happens if you fall...

Jeremy & Sandy caught up to Andy & Tommy.

Andy, Sandy, Amani and Cindy HAVE to do the roadblock (it says in the clue too!).

Sandy is afraid of heights.

Andy is crossing the tightrope like it's nothing... I'd be freaking out...

Sandy is scared to death but she has to do it. Jeremy is supporting her. :hrt: Andy is trying to mess with her.

Andy finishes the roadblock in first. Teams have to figure out this clue and go to a statue.

Sandy finishes the roadblock in second.

Ernie & Cindy arrive at the roadblock. Marcus & Amani arrive shortly after.

Andy & Tommy's taxi left... but unfortunately, the three leftover taxis discussed how to get to the next destination. Sucks for Jeremy & Sandy.

Andy & Tommy get the detour clue. Filet or sole.

Filet: Deliver exact amounts of assorted seafood to different vendors.

Sole: Working with a single piece of leather and string, they have to create a pair of sandals.

Andy & Tommy are doing sole.

There were 2 roadblocks in the second Phuket leg, meaning that there are now 12 roadblocks. Apparently you cannot have a 7-5 count before the finale..

Peach confirmed a roadblock in the Finale...so maybe 2 roadblocks so we dont have 7-6?

Ernie & Cindy are doing sole too. Ernie & Cindy caught up to Jeremy & Sandy. They both arrived at the detour.

Amani & Marcus are doing filet.

Andy & Tommy asked their customer if he surfed.

Marcus & Amani ended up at sole. Their taxi driver took them to sole instead of filet. :groan:

Amani & Marcus aren't going to do the shoes so they're going back to do the seafood.

Cindy ripped a hole in the sandal.

Amani: "We're going to smell so fishy." They had to pick up each fish... and deliver them individually. That sucks.

Andy & Tommy finish the detour in 1st. My goodness they're on fire. Teams have to go to Cathedral Square and figure out the name of the pit stop is hidden on the dresses of these dancers... or the picture is on the necklace.

Amani: "They're slippery little suckers... Ow! And something poked me." :lol:

Ernie & Cindy got a no for their sandals. One string is twisted up.

Jeremy & Sandy got a no too.

Amani is hungry from all the seafood. They finish the detour in 2nd.

Andy & Tommy are looking at the medallions... Aiya. They've gotten it wrong. Balboa? That's where they're going.

Marcus thought he had to dance with them. And then one dancer was sweaty so he dabbed off the sweat off of her face. :lol3:

Andy & Tommy... are really lost. They really think it's Balboa and now they're going to the Statue of Balboa.

Can I just say how stupid this task is...

Everyone but Andy & Tommy are looking for the name of the next pit stop.

Jeremy & Sandy found a building on a metal belt. They're smart! THEY GOT IT. Panama Viejo.

Uh oh. Marcus & Amani are going to the Statue of Balboa. Oh man. This is crazy.

Jeremy & Sandy's driver called the other cab drivers. OMG. IDIOT. IDIOT. I WANT TO SLAP HIM. I WANT TO SLAP HIM SO MUCH RIGHT NOW. Now Ernie & Cindy and Marcus & Amani's cab all know the place. :groan: :groan: :groan: :groan: :groan:

WOW. HOW WERE ERNIE & CINDY AHEAD OF JEREMY & SANDY? JEREMY & SANDY DESERVE THIS FIRST. THEY DESERVE IT. GOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGO.

It's a race between them to the pit stop. It's a foot race. Marcus & Amani arrive. Nobody knows where the pit stop is.

If Jeremy & Sandy don't get this first, I'll be mad.

This was a very good episode. Jeremy & Sandy really deserved their win for being the only team to figure out the name of the Pit Stop. Ironically, Andy & Tommy were too far ahead that their cabby was not part of the answer-sharing team.
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

Next week on season finale of The Amazing Race...

Only three teams remain:
The dating couple with something to prove.
The overachievers who often stumble.
And the comeback kids.

The pressure is on in Atlanta. Ernie is doing something with... a typewriter-like thing? Cindy wishes she would have done it. Teams... are flying planes?

TOO MANY CLIPS. CLIPS OVERLOAD.

Cindy does the map roadblock.

On a positive note, Andy & Tommy got to visit the Panama Canal, previously visited in TAR8

Also, did anyone notice the retro Amazing Race music playing when JS were running to the Pit Stop? that was a nice touch.

For the record, Andy-Thomas were eliminated with the 14th best average performance of any team in the 19 seasons of TAR to date (2.636), as well as the best average placement of a fourth place team. (Previous record for both held by Oswald-Danny on TARAS with 2.666.)
And for shocking final elimination value, this is the biggest one since Flo inadvertently helped eliminate Derek and Drew in Ho Chi Mihn City in TAR 3.
(And until that last clue, Andy-Tommy were leading the leg.)

I loved the TinTin clue and the Dupont brothers. I would have aced that task. But where was Milou? They should have put a dog with TinTin.

I can't even predict who'll win. Ernie & Cindy have been talking about "one mistake costing them first" a lot but have also gotten a slightly negative edit. Amani & Marcus (mostly the latter) have been talking about winning the Super Bowl but they really aren't that great. Jeremy & Sandy's screentime wouldn't be justified with even a placing as high as 1st, but that's the highest they can get.

Yeah...i'm going for :

1 - Ernie and Cindy/Amani and Marcus
2 - Jeremy and Sandy/Ernie and Cindy
3 - Amani and Marcus/Jeremy and Sandy

That's all i can think, :lol:

Okay, so this is another instance of don't try and stray too far from your pack.

Ernie and Cindy and Amani and Marcus gained time at the Roadblock when Jeremy and Sandy figured out their clue with all the three teams cab drivers, thus when they travel to the rooster place, they're barely behind by just a few minutes.

Then, the coincidence came again when Marcus and Amani decided to slow down at the dancers and looked for the clue until the other two teams arrived, where Jeremy and Sandy who didn't catch the words on the dancer's dress, drew it out and ran off to the cab. Amani and Marcus and Ernie and Cindy got the same Baboa thing as the snowboarders.

THEN, while Jeremy and Sandy were travelling to the pitstop, the other two teams obviously do not know what to do.. then their cab drivers called one another and brought all three teams to the same location, almost at the same time, and with all three teams at the pitstop, it was really a crazy party.

I think the Roadblock is scary, but not really iconic or Panama. More like a dare task which can be done in any country in the world. The view isn't that great anyway.

The Detour... I didn't know what Amani and Marcus were supposed to do. I was so damn confused by them just carrying all the seafood that they've got to different stalls. And the making of the sandals could be done in any other country in the world too.

But thank God of the unexpected circumstances, this episode didn't become a snooze-fest with the strongest team Andy and Tommy winning the 7th leg and the weakest team Amani and Marcus eliminated. :lol:

Not one of the best episodes.... but certainly the most entertaining pitstop results/exciting (if you do not know spoilers) since the 3 teams checked in together in TAR 9 Final 4 NEL 1. (BJ and Tyler NEL-ed)

I would've recognized the Tintin reference right away since I saw an animated series a long time ago (I think it was on Nickelodeon).

As for the final challenge -- man, that was challenging!

Now I think Jeremy and Sandy have an equal chance of winning as Amani and Marcus. Their edit has improved throughout the Race, so perhaps a redemption arc? :duno: Though it could also be a tactic to keep the final interesting. But I still wonder why the edit has given Amani and Marcus so much positive attention throughout the entire Race.

Only time will tell I guess.

The Detour... I didn't know what Amani and Marcus were supposed to do. I was so damn confused by them just carrying all the seafood that they've got to different stalls.

This was a standard navigation task that has come up in several prior races (one example being AR12, episode 4 returning to the Ouagadougou for the Tampouy Goat Market). It tests the ability of the team electing it to ask locals for help and be able to quickly follow it once they get it. It could be any items carried, but because Panama is a seafaring country it was logical for the items to be squid, barracuda and other fresh fish.

    Actually that detour lost a lot of its essence because there was only one team doing it. There were many stands in the fish market and each stand would only accept a certain amount of each fish, for example 5Kilos of shrimp, so if each team had to deliver 3kilos of shrimp then the next team could only deliver 2kilos in that same stand and then it would have to find another stand to deliver the rest.
    I would like to see that type of task again but with more teams, because it's both mental and physical.
We have played in TAR games similar tasks and they are a lot of fun.
