How are you people so sure that Ralph and Vanessa are safe through leg 10?

Ralph was seen in the season preview doing what looks like a roadblock at the coir factory. jacobsk68 confirmed that it is in another city so it is probably next time.

It's another city but not far from cochin, most probably 20-25 miles south of cochin. Not sure if there's enough for 5 remaining teams to spend 2 episodes in one small geographical area. But i may be wrong.

The closest major city to Cochin is Alappuzhy (formerly known as Alleppey from AR4), population 179,000. It is know for its coir fiber, a natural fibre extracted from the husk of coconut and used in products such as floor mats, doormats, brushes and mattresses.

The next major city on the road to Mandalay (strike that, my little joke; it's really to Thiruvananthapuram) is Kollam, population 350,000.


I have no idea if either of these was used in leg 10. I believe that Thiruvananthapuram is the most logical place for that leg and both Alappuzhy and Kollam are on the way.

So far we only know about the Dancing being a task on this leg , right ? Is their a chance that the coir task could be on this leg too ?

It could only be IF this is a double RB leg.  OR we don't see the other team member also doing coir.... (which seems unlikely)

But since the most likely place for doing that is another town, I am inclined to think next leg.

Can someone refresh my memory on double RB legs?? Is there also a Detour...or none?? I forget.  :-[

There has never been a Detour with a double roadblock leg. But we haven't seen any sign of a Detour yet in this leg either. If the press photos come out they will probably tell us the answer.

haha they are out already.

Detour A is cricket! It is done by Art and JJ. They must "hit one boundry"

Detour B is driving a auto rickshaw with passengers and is done by Dave and Rachel

The roadblock is done by JJ, both Rachels and Mark

This helps confirm that Ranessa makes until next time whether it is a NEL or not. If a team is eliminated it has to be Kentucky.

Detour B reminds me of a race that looks almost as fun as TAR: the Richshaw Run, which started coincidentally in Kochi and will finish in a few days in the hill country of Shillong.

A boundary in cricket means hitting it out of the line surrounding the field.

Recall Amazing Race Asia 3 in Pune (Nehru Cricket Stadium) for a cricket-oriented ROADBLOCK. One individual had to hit the cricket ball to the boundary (but not over it) to complete the task and get their next clue. The official regulations call for cricket field boundaries to be not more than 90 yards (82.29 meters) from center of the field. The boundary can be a fence, a rope or some marker.

I did some research on the things on the wall of the Coir Factory, where you see them running in images 55,56,57 where Vanessa falls down. the guy's photo on the wall, is an election poster and there's also another poster below it which says "CPI". In kerala the last election was held back in April 2011 and i checked the candidates for that election in and around cochin and alleppey. I think that face matches with the candidate from "Cherthala"  , which is a  town  between Cochin and Alleppey.(his photo can be seen here - http://www.blogger.com/profile/01787861252586860404). He belongs to the "CPI" party which matches with the other poster. (Coir factory employees are big supporters of CPI, which is a communist political party).
So i think the coir factory they are showing is almost  half way between Cochin and Alleppey(Alapuzha) and puts that closer to Cochin and not in Alleppey.

I think y'll are right about Vanessa and Ralph being safe through this episode. In the press release photos Vanessa is wearing yellow, but when she's shown falling down she's wearing a gray tank top. But who knows.  :duno:

Hopefully both teams are safe thru this leg....since we do NOT yet know if this is some form of a NEL/TBC leg.

that's  a local city Bus they are on. It has tarp rolled up (usually rolled down during those heavy monsoon rains) on both sides.

We have a SPOILER DISCUSSION THREAD for a reason. If you would like to discuss any episodes other than India, including the Finale, that would be the place to go. Thanks!

There is a new clip up on cbs.com. It shows Mark doing his first attempt on the roadblock but he already seems worn out by the practicing.

All other teams are shown there at this point except for Dave and Rachel. The other Rachel has apparently already made several attempts because she is over with Brendon crying about how she can't do it. Vanessa is saying "I don't have it in me" and you also get the impression that JJ has already tried more than once as well.

Since these teams have already been trying and Davechel may already be done by the time Mark makes his first try, it doesn't look good for Mopper. :(

The opening shot of the clip shows the blue, red, purple, and green teams standing in the field. These belong to JJ, Mark, Vanessa, and Rachel(O' Reilly) respectively. What color was the other Rachel using?
