The salvage pass was a great twist espicaliy since the game is more alliance based this season (with the voting U-Turn). I cant wait to see it later in the game when the teams are more cut throat.
TARAU/NZ: (yet to choose)
TARCAN2: Cormac & Nicole, Pierre & Michel, Natalie & Meaghan

The whole time, my sister and I were like "If we were on this season, we'd be the first ones out for sure". We definitely couldn't eat the eggs, we have no rhythm, not a fan of mud or pigs and we'd weigh down the raft... :lol3:

After watching the entire first season in 2.5 days a couple weeks ago, its going to be tough waiting a week for the next episode. Anyway, I thought it was a huge step up for any leg in last season (and for the first in the series, that one was really good).

I wonder why Sticky and Sam paid 2000 pesos when the taxi fair reading is only like 176.50 pesos? They wasted a lot of money.

Nearly 10 minutes into the episode, I was already begging for Paul & Steve to get off of the screen. SO ANNOYING. ESPECIALLY PAUL. :res: RUNNING INTO SOMEONE ELSE TO TRY TO GET THE PIG AND BEAT THEM? CLASSY. :res: :res: :res: IF ONLY THEY CAME IN LAST. I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO SEE THEM GET ELIMINATED FIRST. Now we have to endure at least another episode with them in it. :groan:

I really disliked the egg eating challenge. Not cool. The poor cheerleaders... I would have been gagging as well. So... can anyone actually differentiate Michelle or Jo from each other... :lol:

Lucy & Emilia's calm approach to the pigs... :hearts: Sticky catching the pigs... :hearts: (Can I just say how much I love Sam & Sticky?) Oh my goodness... Sarah catching the pigs... :lol3:

The raft challenge was really cool! I quite enjoyed watching a certain team fail... (hm, I wonder which team that is? :lol:) Sticky paddling... :hearts: (I really really really like Sam & Sticky hehe). Shane & Andrew's strategy for the raft... :lol: Ross & Tarryn winning the leg. Kym & Donna finishing right behind them? Who would have expected that? But that's awesome! :tup: It turned dark really quickly... The race for first and last was pretty intense. Lucy & Emilia's attitude... I really like them!

I don't think the Salvage Pass is not as good as the Express Pass. The 1 hour head start isn't really that much, especially if there's bunching. But I'm so glad that Ross & Tarryn decided to use the Salvage Pass to save Lucy & Emilia! :hearts:

Love:
Sticky & Sam
Ross & Tarryn
Lucy & Emilia
Michelle & Jo
Kym & Donna

Neutral:
Shane & Andrew
James & Sarah
Sue & Teresa
Joseph & Grace
Adam & Dane

I thought this episode will be a little boring. it's not the place, I'm from the Philippines And it's great to see them here but the Balut and the detour thing has been watched before in TARA.

What made the episode very thrilling is the raft making. it's good to see how the order shifted and the result is very surprising. who would have thought the older ones will be in the front of the pack.

The task doesnt need full brawn. The cousins and P/S didn't take time to make sure their raft is secured. They just want to hit the water first.

Which goes to show that with a little bit more creativity, more new challenges can be created instead of using the same old same old challenges of TARA & TAR... Wonder if TAR people from USA has more say than the Oz ppl?

Also, the car puzzle at the beginning was good but not much grey matters were lost to get the cars out...

And, why were there no roadblock challenges this time around?

maybe they thought the taxi meter is in dollars. they are even worried that 3000 is not enough. That is one lucky driver. Anyway, they made the driver's family really happy lol

2,000 pesos is about 45 dollars, that is one very expensive taxi ride, and they only got about US$146.

I'm not Filipino and I down balut rather easily.  :umn:    Can't do the dance at all, but I could probably catch pigs because I've chased chickens before and I can build a raft.



The rhythm based detours aren't great in any season. People avoid those like the plague.

Remember they are from Australia... $45 for a taxi fare is pretty standard here in Australia (or at least in Perth... dunno about the rest). If they haven't travelled much it may not have seemed that unusual to them.

I thought they paid 2,500 or was it "2,000 fine" - take a hear again at 28:24 of the video. Interestingly the teachers paid 341 pesos (about USD8), just before sticky & sam paid their taxi driver, and an earlier clip showed "176.50" on s&s's taxi meter, but s&s did mentioned that they have only 2,000 and "it's all yours", "yours" to the driver.

Yes, they overpaid as they didn't see the "dot" before the last 2 digits.  :-[

aka AU$46.50

I liked the episode, but not as much as last season's premier. The casting is excellent though; I love Kym and Donna, the twins and the sisters. I only dislike Paul, I think the speed with which he wanted to quit was nearly pathetic, especially after all the talk about being a competitive alpha male.

Well how speedy that was is hard to say, I guess the editing plays a role there.  They are obviously meant to be the baddies, so hopefully they can fit that role well.  The entrepreneurs in the first series were slightly annoying rather than being real baddies.  Art and JJ this year were the archetypal baddies, but for some people they were too much.
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.

Well true it took them a fair bit of time it seems, since it was dark when both of the last teams reached the mat.
Still it seemed to be Steve who was persistent, and Paul willing to talk him into quitting and/or taking the penalty.
That was kind of rediculous after all his pumped up talk, so Paul seems to run out of steam quite quickly in fact. Even if it took them a while, clearly the other teams took a fair bit as well (the aboriginal cousins had to do it all over again even!) and they didn't give up in spirit for the most part.  :duno:

My least favorite team so far but like you say, obviously cast as the bad guys of this season.  :lol:

I mentioned the taxi thing in another topic before I saw this, but I think it was probably a misunderstanding at heart.
The guys thought they were running out of money so they mentioned they could only pay 2000 pesos.
The taxi driver then asked: For how long (as in, how long do you want to hire me for, this is how I understood it - he saw two rich tourists in his eyes and probably needed the money so if they wanted to charter him..)

They gave him the money - the taxi driver should have then intervened basically I think but I'm still not sure if he understood why they gave him that money or if there was a malicious intent.

It makes no sense to me that TAR would give an unrealistic amount for leg 1 (since they had no chance to save up some money either).
I hope they'll keep a sharp mind from now on because mistakes like that could easily cost them the race at some point or another, which would be a shame.  :(

Well from what we were shown most of the other teams didn't say they were thinking of giving up, though those who had to go back and do it again may have.  Taking a penalty in anticipation of others not being able to do it might even have worked had there not been some local help around.

Taxi drivers in these poorer countries will probably take whatever they can get, even if it's through misunderstanding.  There have certainly certainly been some bad taxi drivers in the American version.  It must be a tricky situation for a racer to be in sometimes, you want to settle with the taxi driver (probably still have to in the rules) but you don't want to be exploited by them either as it could hurt you in the race.  Certainly it pays to play it smarter than they were in revealing that they were about to pay that much.  As I think someone in a previous race said, don't show how much money you have.

A very good advice.  :tup:

damn!  I couldn't find a torrent on the 1st episode of TARAus 2 to watch it.  Maybe there's an Australian law that forbids illegal distribution of "licensed" TV shows through bittorrent? :gaah:

Someone from the Philippines on You Tube mentioned that the yellow 'airport taxi's' are much more expensive than the 'regular' white ones, i.e. they overcharge in general. Still clearly the Sticky team paid way too much even if the yellow taxi's tend to overcharge, whether that was due to misunderstanding or not, I think.  :) You're right, taxi's overcharge and rip off tourists especially worldwide. I think I can somewhat understand it in these situations, even if it's still wrong obviously.

On the other hand it was clearly quite naive of Sticky & friend to just wave the money in his face in a way. I mean it's like being in your own country and taking a taxi in an unknown place or city, waving your wallet in front of the taxidriver's nose and then say: ok take as much as you need. Sure that person doesn't need to abuse your trust but on the other hand, there is such a thing as 'common sense' too.  :lol:

Either way, I hope they have learned from this mistake and go about things in a smarter way from now on - eg asking a ballpark price or negotiating the price in advance, or at the very least not jumping to conclusions and waving money in someone's face.
Even if they made it to the next leg it could still hurt them because financially they don't have any cushion. Hopefully their starter money stretches far enough for them not to have more problems like this.  :)

Watched this one last night. Really good first leg. Cracked up when they had to eat balut. Can't stand the "alpha males". Think they got humbled this leg.

I used an Australian based proxy to watch the episode on the official show website. Does pick up a bit of latency though. Really, the usual suspects have the episode readily available to watch.

I don't think that the taxi driver intentionally ripped Sticky & Sam off. At some point when they offer 2,000pesos he asks them for how long they want to hire him and they answer just for this ride. He would be a full not to take the money  when they are being offered.
let's hope that Sticky and sam will learn not to offer money that easily!
