If I were in M/B position I would have to think I was in last place and regardless a shot at the FF would keep me in last or propel me ahead.

Here is my take on the FF:

This is made for Mark and Bopper. ARt and JJ and Dave/Rachel can't, Vanessa and Rachel won't/didn't take it.

BUT Mark/Bopper are some awful amount of time behind AND have a SpeedBump.

Like Nary/Jamie's leg, there is no Airport bunching, this will be a more linear leg.

We can HOPE for a HoO...so far we have the dots on the foreheads, a blessing they have to all receive?

But if there is no HoO, and you are Mark and Bopper and are some HUGE ampunt of time behind....would you waste more time trying for thr FF or would you assume it had alrady been done??


And depending on how far they are behind... even if they do the FF there is no guarantee it is enough time to save them.
 
We need a HoO!!!

Peach, it's what I said in post 20:  time is the key factor in this leg.  If Mark & Bopper are too separated from Art/JJ, Brenchel and Vanessa/Ralph (I don't include Davechel because they were at the PitStop when the 2nd. team were barely arriving to the coffe place to get their next clue), sadly I think they're gonna need a miracle - that it could be a HoO as you wish - to stay in the race.

Or, maybe, that some other team get a little bite of the race karma. :yess:

What is HoO? I've seen this word being used a lot but I have no clue what it means. Thanks!

I was thinking about how long it took Mopper to finish last week's roadblock, which relates back to this week. I'm speculating that it would take about 5 hours to mess up the routine 11 times and threaten to quit. Then, their cab runs out of gas; then they still had to do the detour; then there's a speedbump. I think the only way they are not eliminated is if this week's tasks are so long and tedious. But I also recall the great CBS montage of all their experiences and such during the race.

If they are over six hours behind then it seems even more likely that WRP will allow the teams to be bunched in order to avoid a predictable episode.

Yes, we need caps for that one there's a lot of stuff in there. Somehow the fact that they continue to dwell on Mopper's woes seems to indicate that they survive again.

Art and JJ pulling boxes on a cart is probably one Detour. (Do the boxes say something about ginger?) And Brenchel riding the elephant and pushing a wheelbarrow of dung is the other option.

What's Vanessa saying? "Tell them to.... ???"

When Brenchel is talking about being competitive or something, could they be at an HOO??

I see both a wheelbarrow task and a task using a large cart with crates. Possibly two different tasks.
Art and JJ may have an physical issue of some sort too, hard to tell from the brief clip that was included.
IV line means exhaustion, i suspect, and I doubt seriously this is an extended pit stop, although all of the clips seem to be in the daytime. And don't forget that the amount of time from the release in Tanzania to arrival in Cochin was almost 33-ish hours for Mark and Bopper. So fatigue is very likely to be a serious problem for them along with the physical toll of these last three legs.
Peach, I wish Neobie or someone could attempt to calculate the times from the pit stop check-ins at the end of the episode. My sense is that it is at least mid afternoon for Mark and Bopper, while my impression is that Rachel and Dave likely finished the leg in 3 hours or less once their flight arrived in Cochin, so by 10:00 am.

And that seems to be at the RB location, because we see JJ, Vanessa and Rachel, who made the RB in the previous leg, waiting while JJ says "anybody play the game strategically?".

Let's hope that World Race Productions has more integrity that is implied by Prophet's suggestion. I detest even the efforts in telecasts to make finishes of 2 teams seem close when they could not be. I would detest creating a Hours of Operation for the purpose of keeping a popular team competitive even more.

The two things we know are:
1. It was daylight on December 13 (sunset was 605pm) when all teams checked in.
2. "Normal" 12 hour pit stops would have teams released between midnight and 6am. Exactly where in that time period will determine whether there might be a "natural" opening time of buildings or businesses. It is possible that there was one.

They got the Bindi somewhere...let's hope that is the first task and a HoO!

Agree about the bunching, routes and tasks are set far in advance.

The fact that Art, Ralph and Brendon are together doing the RB (at least that's what it seems to be), means that point 2 of your spec could be right.  We don't see M/B with the rest of the teams, but this may be because the SB is previously to the RB.

It would be shady if Mopper make it through another week. As I watched Mark's terrible dancing the very last time he attempted the routine, he totally sucked and made obvious mistakes and they gave him mercy, which is preferential treatment, which makes a big difference if they beat another team because the producers of CBS gave them a break.

Giving them a break on the twelfth try and with them suffering from heat exhaustion and with all teams ahead of them is simply humane. :lol:

Here's the pic. Rachel could always wear a wig but I think that Brendon's hair is too long to have been shaved just a week or so before. They must decide not to do the FF.



For what it's worth, I've been looking hard for a picture of Mark and Bopper taken after the race was over and finding nothing. I did post something back in January or February about Mark and Bopper appearing at a middle school donkey basketball game, but I can't find any pictures from that event. While you could infer that they were laying low to hide shaved heads, I've searched for pictures of Ralph and Vanessa and Jamie and Nary and not finding anything for those teams either.
