QUESTIONS ABOUT LEG 4:

1. Does anyone know what kind of plants they were harvesting for the elephants?
2. Does anyone know the name of the song they sung during the Roadblock? Was it a love song?
3. What is team blue's penalty for finishing in last? (If stated)

I shall remain a neutral party in the midst of all this controversy. I'm just an impartial observer who wishes to get the wikis done.

I liked the duck challenge ^_^
1. Just a kind of grass. I don't know the name.
2. Yes, it is a love song but it is a kind of traditional music (local music). That kind of music is called "Ḥ"
3. No penalty because it's KOR.

Yes, everyone is welcomed here, especially a racer. But which racer are you :-/ Anyway, the first thing you can help is: GB need full name of all racers. I try to find it in Vietnamese media but I can't find anything. I only know Do Hoang Duong and Ngo Mai Trang.

The race is public so some photos of the race will be somewhere. Just need some investigations. And in RFF, there are many great detectives.

Yes, hello! Whoever you are, it's really great to meet you!

One very important aspect of our wiki is the Full Names of contestants, since this is a Reality Show wiki and we are collecting data on real people. It looks a little unprofessional when Season 3 only has given names, while the past two seasons have full names X3

It would also be nice to have their ages and hometowns, but these are not as important as the names.

Just in general, I think, is to take a look at the Wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amazing_Race_Vietnam_2014) and just see if anything stands out to you that is incorrect. If you don't feel like editing it, then I will be more than happy to do it for you. Just say anything here that's wrong and I will fix it!

Thank you in advance!

I just read the leg 4.
1. Đền Cuông task, they must use the numbers and the given keys to find a word related to An Dương Vương. The answer is Vương ( = King in English)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_D%C6%B0%C6%A1ng_V%C6%B0%C6%A1ng
2. They need to cut 15 kg of nearby plant and feed 5kg to the elephant. They need to clean 50kg of elephant waste.
3. About the salt task, I think you don't understand how they made the salt. Here is the step.
- Sand is spread over the land and they water it with sea water. Under the sun, sand is dried and keep the salt crystal.
- Collect the sand and put it to the designed place. (Team did it right when they came)
- Use their feet to prepare the sand. Add the water. Sand is now as a filter and they can collect water with very high concentration of salt. (The team did this)
- That water with high concentration of salt is put into the field. Under the sun, salt is crystalized as iced and then they collect it. (The team did it, they collect 70 kg each team).
- Spread the new sand over the land for the next time (Team did it).

XD That's what happens when I write descriptions based only on watching the teams do it.

I mean even the "previews" of the tasks in this version suck. While the host was explaining the duck challenge, it literally ONLY showed shots of the ducks. That's certainly descriptive.

Ikr.

I forgot about this, the soccer challenge
- You said 4 hits but we should make it more clearly: each member two hits.
- In front of the goal right in the middle, they have a human frame instead of a goal keeper.
- They must goal 3 out of 5 times.
- If they fails, they got 15 minutes penalty until trying again.

And about Ḥ roadblock, after hearing the song, they have 30 minutes to learn before trying to perform. Everytime they fail, they also got 15 minutes penalty.

I think I can say this race is 15 minutes race because they give 15 minutes penalty almost every challenge.

It's mostly the numbers that I miss. The penalty lengths, the weights, the number of times they have to do things.

I just go back to Leg 3. There is a mistake (maybe due to my recap).

The last challenge (Elastic one): They did not exchange the flag. The second member try to grad the flag from the first member only, not hand over anything.

What was team Mint's penalty?

They only sold 20 "Nón" for 2,3 millions VND (required 3 millions). So they got penalty.

This leg is ridiculous.
Tell the Blue team to be eliminated and nothing about KOR but then after some hours, just come and tell them to keep on racing.
No doubt why there are some rumors about rigging.

Not knowing what was being said obviously I had no idea what was going on, but I never would have thought that even if I knew Vietnamese Blue Team being saved was coming out of nowhere. Wow.

Leg 5
In this leg's Roadblock, one team member had to ride the park's zipline. During the ride, they would have to memorize the numbers they saw along the ride. Then, they had to punch in the string of numbers in the correct order as they appeared to dial a person who would have their next clue. In this Detour. teams choose between Truyền Thống (Tradition) and Hiện Đại (Modern). In Truyền Thống, teams had to take a basket and wade into the nearby ocean. where they would use it to collect small snails from the waterbed. Once they had collected at least 5kg, teams would get their next clue. In Hiện Đại, teams had to use the provided tools and materials to install a work of modern art (installation art). Once their work was approved by a judge, teams would get their next clue
Once at the Alba Hot Springs, one team member had to complete a complex high-altitude ropes course while blindfolded. – i know this is called Hi-wire

Trang Khiếu's fullname is Khiếu Thị Huyền Trang ^^ And I don't think Trang Trần, Hiếu Nguyễn, Long Điền, Kim Dung are fullname.
[/quote]

Long Dien is his full name since he is of chinese descent. Last name Long, first name Dien. I think Kim Dung is a similar case but I can't be 100% sure.
It's becoming acceptable for Vietnamese to go by their first/last name basis and Trang Khieu, Trang Tran and Hieu Nguyen are using this format professionally so I think keeping their names like this will make it easier for anyone who wants to find out more about them as compared to their full name.

I know but they are their stage names. Just like Hương Giang Idol or Kiwi or Miko. So it is not what GB wants.

Thank you very much for the hometowns and ages!! That's perfect, for the first time a TAR Vietnam table will be completely full of those.

...Except I think you missed Blue Team. I'm going to guess that the show already refers to them by full name? (Considering how long they are)

The names are just SPECTACULAR so far, thank you very very much! It lets us do something before the "Other" Amazing Race Wiki, mwahahaha! If you find out anything more about Red/Orange names, let us know! :D

And those are snails? Really? They look super tiny, I totally thought they were rocks. Do you (or Paradoxinee) happen to know which lake that task took place at?

Oh and one more thing, could you confirm that Team Blue received no penalty for Leg 5 (Such as the 30-minut penalty if not in first). Since theirs is such an unusual circumstance, I'd like to have a second source confirm what happened (Certainly not that I don't trust you, Para ^_^)

THANKS GUYS!! :D :D

It's a river, Hương River (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perfume_River). It's near my grandparents' house. :luvya:
