Next week on The Amazing Race...

Bopper & Mark have to claw their way back. There are people dressed up as tigers?

BB Rachel doesn't want her head shaved? Looks like the same Fast Forward that Uchenna & Joyce took! BB Rachel paid $500 for her extensions...

Vanessa falls on the concrete. She heard a pop. :ascared


The previews pretty much gave away the final standings prior to the finale.

Rachel is pretty much screwed here, since all of the NELs are gone.  OTOH, with a SB, a U-Turn or two, or not, this may be the best penultimate episode in TAR history!
Every reality star is someone's favorite

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

It's going to be a Fast Forward! They had a white paper with instructions, just like every other Fast Forward!

For location purposes, there was an establishing shot midway through the detour where the field for the cricket is right next to and across a street from the field used for the clutch. We didn't hear anything as to where those two fields are, but its clear the cricket task was in some sort of stadium, as teams had to go through an entrance with steps down from the outside onto the field.
And the hair shaving fast forward in the next leg (assuming that it is a fast forward....look like its third appearance on TAR (after TAR 5, leg 9 in Kolkata, and TAR 7, leg 8 in Jodhpur), which has to be a first for the exact same task in the same country no less; and in the first two appearancces both team members had to be head shaved.

quick question, on Mark's last try they had a dancer doing the steps right near the camera guy, did they only do it that one time or had they done it throughout?

I think they did that for all teams. That's how the do it in Bollywood movies.

It was also an unaired Fast Forward from Season 2, wasn't it?


Closing thoughts on the episode: Art & J.J. are funnier when they don't try to be funny and instead just let it flow (obviously "not trying to be funny" doesn't include when they're jerks). Rachel's voice is like nails on a chalkboard. Dave & Rachel get along great. Vanessa & Ralph are attempting to Andrew & Dan their way to the finish line.

Only when they don't show them bickering.
Reality Fan Forum, where 'enthusiasm' is completely redefined as not meaning having an interest in and having something to say but as having to be completely positive even about aspects of something you disagree on.  So both the fan and forum (discussion) aspects are prescribed/limited.

Same pitstop as the Amazing Race 3!

??
Close, but no cigar. My information says that the ARA3 pitstop was on Bolgatty Island, but at the Bolgatty Palace. That is clearly different from the Bolgatty Island Resort, which is where the AR20 ep. 9 pitstop is.

The only unused/unaired FAST FORWARD from AR2 that I know of is "climb 268 steps of Po Lin Temple".

Rachel (with Dave) is really so strong at dancing, not only she did it in one try she danced the best during the RB among all racers.

As long as I love M/B I think the non-elimination is kind of weird, Mark clearly should not get the clue with his 12th attempt as it's clear that he still missed some steps or beats in the dance, the judge just gave them the clue out of mercy.  At this point I would think it is because they are toast, but then it turned out that they got saved which bothered me a bit since Mark's dance clearly was not as good as the others.

I will disagree on that point. Mark had a difficult time with the sequence of dance moves. He was making mistakes on moving his body in the correct direction. I did not think he got a mercy pass on his 12th attempt. I thought he earned it. I doubt that it will matter at this point, as my thoughts on the imminent elimination of Mark and Bopper are posted in another thread (#1040 in spoilers).

I think they did that for all teams. That's how the do it in Bollywood movies.

I noticed that as well and didn't notice it for the others, maybe it just wasn't shown to us. ??? I was so happy that Mark tried again and that the dance instructor and dancers were so happy for him when he finally got it right. 

Mark looked haggard when he was talking with Phil. Both of them are in bad shape at this stage of the race. I love these two, I wish they had gotten further.
