the title says it all. In all the previous races the team that finished first in the first leg won the race 6 times, Rob/Brennan, Tyler/James, Nick/Starr, Meghan/Cheyne, Ernie/Cindy and Rachel/Dave and the team that finished second won 3 times BJ/Tyler, Tammy/Victor and Nan and Kat

Phil: "I'll just say it had hilarious results the first time."

Not the bell counting in Groningen
Not the eels
This has to be, if it was a ROADBLOCK, the ditch-vaulting in an Amsterdam suburb

Hey, Apskip, did you remember this?

Which Netherlands Roadblock are they talking about?
- The TAR12 pole-jumping or the TAR15 bell-counting?

What am I missing?  :duno:
If it's either one of them, the TAR15 one would look more interesting, but the TAR12 one would cause muddiness  :lol:

Maybe they're taking task from other country? Because I don't think those tasks worth to be a Switchback... :duno:

And I don't believe it's gonna be the eel RB of TAR4. :( .
The most infamous Roadblock that comes up in my mind and can be happened anywhere in Europe is the haybales rolling task. However, I don't think that they would be repeating it again... :(

What about the windmill fast forward?

I mean they can make it a Roadblock

I wonder what this season's Switchback would be - S4 eel RB?

What about the choice "15 ft." of TAR4 Detour?:
"Teams has to dig barehanded through a 15 foot high pile of manure to find their next clue."  :o

Kamineko, they put the "shave your head" FF for the third time in TAR history last season; so don't take for granted that they wouldn't repeat it again.  :)

The written statement they have provided is "one of the more infamous ROADBLOCKs. I believe that the word "ROADBLOCK" eliminates any consideration of DETOURs being converted to ROADBLOCKs. There are only 3 prior ROADBLOCKs in Amazing Races in the Netherlands:

AR4- count and basket 25 live eels
AR12 - ditch-vaulting
AR15 - counting bells

There are obviously many differences of opinion on which of these might be worthy. However, my answer is emphatic: NONE OF THE ABOVE meets my standards for what a switchback should be. World Race Productions hopefully decided for Netherlands on a task much more interesting. We'll see.

Maybe because of Donald doing it in his underwear?  :lol3:

...or something!

I would have given anything for a new or even old country in Africa this time...but sadly, it is not to be.

Peach, OTOH, it raises the odds of an African country for TAR 22. Until the uproar over that bad idea of a film clip being posted on YouTube, I would have thought with civilian elected governments now installed in Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia, there might be a chance it could be one of those, but the uprest makes me doubt that will happen before next year at the earliest.

I'm trying to think of a way that this could be possible, and I just can't! We know that teams were in 'Bangladesh' for around 3-4 days without being sighted. But any new countries would put us over the already stated total of 9!

Phil is great with his geography, and I doubt very much he would have made two mistakes there. Why did he say that?!

Categorically, WE know this is NOT true, not possible.

But Phil is entitled, he almost never makes an error, but I did do doubletake and the fastest rewind "did I hear that" ever!! :lol:

Hmmm. It could be Phil is talking about something other than the Switchback task; maybe an Intersection? We haven't seen one of those in a while, it is something in the history of the Race. Or perhaps an no-pitstop leg that keeps the teams going into the second leg?

We don't have many historical buried twists to bring back from the past.  The simple U-Turn, the Yield, the 30 minutes penalty...  :duno:

I don't recall anyone from the race revealing that much information in advance. EVER.

Alanevada,

What I think is not as important as what Phil 's frame of reference is. Even though nothing has changed in my assessment that NONE of the 3 Netherlands ROADBLOCKS are "infamous" Phil's reference this time was to hilarious. Nobody could argue that counting bells is either infamous or hilarious. Counting eels is not infamous and it is not very hilarious. The ditch vault is not infamous in any respect and I do not see it as hilarious, but it could be viewed as hilarious by Phil.

I will say that I hadn't expected the season preview aired at the end of the episode tonight to confirm by the use of a clip that one team makes it to the last few legs, by using a location long time viewers ought to recognize.

Those of you who were paying attention will know exactly what I'm referring to.

I believe after looking at the trailer with scenes from presumably every leg or at least country in AR21 that Africa may have been included. From Bangladesh perhaps teams did not go directly to Istanbul.

What if they stopped in the Seychelles? What about Grand Baie in Mauritius? It looked a lot like the sailboat scene shown.

I don't get how they are going to get flights out of Bangladesh to Africa. The only way would be a Dhaka - Singapore - Johannesburg - Africa route or a Dhaka - Dubai - Africa route, but both South African Airways and Emirates barely operate those routes at all.

Close, but no.  Your pic is from La Palma, in the Canary Island on the Atlantic Ocean.  TAR21 was in Palma de Mallorca, in the Baleares Islands, on the Mediterranean Sea.

IIRC, Didn't Phil say on the start line that there were 12 legs, 9 countries and 3 continents....I've never heard him mention such at the start line before.

I was very much surprised by this too tbh.
In fact two teams consecutively could clearly be made out in that location.  :duno:

Wonder why they did that?
