Saw the preview. no way, someone gets turned back at the finish line?

That has never happened before.

First of all, a team can only get their next clue from a roadblock after completing that roadblock. So I'm guessing that whichever team it is, they accidentally stumbled onto the finish line (perhaps on their way to the final roadblock)

In most seasons, the roadblock in the final leg comes after the detour. Oftentimes, it's right before the finish line and if that's the case, it's most often some sort of a memory task.

Yeah, I think it's more likely that team stumbled on the finish line instead of downright not doing the roadblock.

Actually most finales don't have a detour at all. But one thing they have been doing lately is a double roadblock in the finale. What if a team skips the second one? This seems more likely than them completing it incorrectly because in that case they wouldn't get the clue.

And who says that this team is eliminated? They could be in the lead at that point and still get back to the roadblock while other teams are there. One question is, is this RB in question the final task or not?

exactly what Prophet said

we have NO idea where this RB is, it could be right before the Finish Line, it could be halfway through the leg, it could even be at the beginning of the Leg, the team who doesn't complete it might have to go ALL the way back to wherever it is, we have NO idea  :duno:

Oh and

The breathing clip sounds like Rachel.from Davechel. So one of the Rachel teams had to.go.back. Hope Art and JJ is miles behind, and Brenchel win

@jiajia12: I listened to the clip again and I can't hear anybody breathing. But you seemed to know that Brenchel would beat Ranessa in a footrace in the last episode...

Really. Do any of you hear breathing? I have the sound turned all the way up on a HD copy  and do not and who could identify a breather anyway? :lol3:

The only thing I can hear that resembles breathing is those dramatic 'whooshing' sound effects. :lol:

Why would you say that? ???

IIRC, they only had problems with R/V and E/A.

Well, there's always a first time for everything in TAR:  a Co-ed team winning the race - and a first woman - (TAR3); a first time an all female team won (TAR17); a double elimination (TAR19); two U-Turned teams spared elimination (this season); a team last in a NEL who completed SB, RB and Detour and won the next leg (TAR16).  I always thought (or dreamt) that one day, one team would reach the finish line and Phil would receive them with a "however" due to failed a task in that leg.  Seems it's the first time for this too. :groan:

Wrong.  Dennis and Andrew won the FF in leg 3 of TAR3 with the hope to catch the pack, but they reached the PitStop in last place and were eliminated from the race.

If you listen very carefully (with the volume very high), as Phil tells a team that they have to turn back, I hear some heavy breathing.

the breathing sounded female, a male breathing heavily sounds different.

Because I clumped R/V, R/D and A/JJ together and I assumed R/V would be out. I also understand that they had a good relationship with R/B

I agree with this. After Phil says "You are the first team to arrive" Then right before he says "roadblock" you can hear it again. It sounds familiar, but not RachelR Familiar

In caps 49-51 Phil is telling the team in question that they have to go back & do the roadblock...if you look at Phil's eyes in 49&50 he is looking up at the guy in question so I would say it's a guy a fair bit taller than Phil as in Brendon or even Dave. I think B & D are taller than JJ (?) but Brendon is definitely taller than Phil, not as sure how tall Dave is.

In Cap 52 Phil is looking down, his eyes have shifted quite a bit, so I would say he's looking at either Rachel. I think the team in question is definitely not Art & JJ but one of the "Chel's" :) Hope that made sense.

After listening several times I can hear breathing too. Only one or two breathes. I don't see Phil looking anywhere but upů

I listened with the volume all the way up and headphones on , and you're right , I can hear it too and it does sound like Rachel from D/R.

Interesting analysis.

ETA: Actually Brendon and Rachel are more different in height than Dave and Rachel. On the other hand, Art and JJ are about the same...

Does anybody notice that we have 8 (if we count Vanessa, as we believe that R/V are the last team eliminated) female racers in the finish line?  And the breathing could be from one of them?

ETA - As I said above, the two M/F teams have more of a height difference than Art & JJ, that's why I think it's not them that Phil turns back.

Does anybody notice that we have 7 others female racers in the finish line?  And the breathing could be from one of them?

why would they be breathing heavily? plus, how could the sound crew, catching Phil's voice record an eliminated female racers breathing from a couple feet away? Finally, it would make sense for whoever is on the Finish Line to breathe heavily, they ran towards it.
