    I'm fairly confident this proves our next eliminated team is Joey and Danny. I think it's likely to occur in Azerbaijan, 6 non-finale episodes left. 2 non-eliminations. There is a 2/3 chance of Azerbaijan being an elimination leg.


kevin2012,
There is an alternate possibility, which is for what you are referring to as 2 NELs to be combined into one TBC (To Be Continued) spread over 2 episodes. My guess is that this would happen with 2 episodes in Tanzania.

Yes, you're quite right. I was undoubtedly projecting that these legs ought to be in Kenya but Tanzania is about equally good.

I wonder if there could be an Hours of Operation at the sword fighting\fire place since it's nighttime there.

Sounded like Brendon with the quote to me.

Water is probably roadblock, hard to tell who is shown though.

I don't see Rachel, but Bopper, Vanessa, and I think Joey or Danny are shown. Def RB. Think it is Vanessa with the fear?

JJ for the title.

Quote from: ZouLy
the oil bath is at Naftalan Oil Spa... I don't know if there's more than one oil bath and spa in Baku...
The city and spa Naftalan are quite a ways inland; however, the name appears to be franchised. The only match I could find for Baku is the Naftalan Health Centre. (picture here--the tiling looks similar)
Trivia: after an oil bath, minute amounts of oil will continue to seep from skin pores for up to 3 weeks  :eww.

#SPEC teams pick up the Detour clue at Bibi Heybat Mosque, which would make sense for the distance to the oil spa

Do we have picture proof of a hay task?

This:

"TWO TEAMS SEE HOW THEY STACK UP AFTER HITTING THE HAY," Can mean a team might have slept in or something.

This has to be one of the more cryptic clues we have gotten from a press release. I am wondering why so many teams choose the nasty oil task. Maybe the hay thing (if it is a Detour) is a lot farther to drive to so everyone stays together like the speedo detour from TAR19.
