NEXT TIME ON TAR Australia
  • Fly to Paris, France
  • Grace and Joseph steal James and Sarah's taxi at a stacking? beer task?
  • Driving classical cars - the twins breakdown
TV GUIDE

All teams are excited to learn they are heading to Paris - and straight into a culinary adventure (Le Corbin Blu). But sparks fly when Joseph and Grace steal Sarah and James' taxi, and the ramifications will be felt thousands of kilometres away (Havana?, U-Turn/Yield?, Penalty?). Meanwhile, a short drive could unexpectedly prove to be the downfall for more than one team.

So excited for a TAR episode on my birthday. Never had one before, I think. <33333 :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

(And in France too! <33 :hrt:)

According to a TV Guide description:

All teams are excited to learn they are heading to Paris - and straight into a culinary adventure. But sparks fly when Joseph and Grace steal Sarah and James' taxi, and the ramifications will be felt thousands of kilometres away. Meanwhile, a short drive could unexpectedly prove to be the downfall for more than one team.

If the ramifications will be felt 'thousands of kilometres away', then I assume this means that the taxi is stolen before flying off to France, so I speculate that there might be a bunch-up point in Turkey with some sort of task (allowing James & Sarah to catch-up the four hours on everyone else) in order for Groseph to steal the taxi there. :tup:

I think they're going to spend a half leg (night leg) in France and jet their way to Cuba (driving classic car). It's all in a leg!

I think when the show La Habana Grant says "the biggest leg yet"?... they are also showing some shots of panoramic views and  streets  in La Habana (aside the Che Guevara poster), plus the self driving task is in La Habana and they even show typical locals.

its only a 1 hour episode.. and i doubt they would spend half a leg in an iconic place like Paris
i think they showed snippets of the Cuban episode to show that the race is getting more serious

NEW PROMO ON THE WEBSITE (Leaked Footage) - hopefully someone can get it up?

Joseph and Grace are at an isolated CHEESE FACTORY. They have to get back to PARIS with the cheese? There are no taxis so they steal James and Sarah's taxi and take James and Sarah's bags out of the taxi. Grace and the taxi driver agree tho pay the meter and extra money. Then James and Sarah see their bags on the road..

COULD GRACE BE THE NEXT VILLAIN?!?!  :o

Picture 29 (El Che) is definitely in Havana.  The inscription reads "Hasta la victoria siempre".   Cuba is also famous for it's old cars.  Because of various embargoes it is difficult to import cars to Cuba, so they keep their old cars running by whatever means necessary.

The logo on the side of the truck belongs to a company called STEF, which transports refrigerated items
http://www.freshplaza.com/news_detail.asp?id=91952

So that doesn't help. But there is another logo on a small carrier car with some letters on it. It looks as if the first is a w? Maybe that belongs to the cheese factory

Wait...they touched another team's property...I'm pretty sure that will cause a penalty.

Sarah said in an article about the Paul/Grace thing that Grace will get her comeuppance. A penalty is probably it.

I'm not so sure. Cab stealing has never technically been against the rules, and they didn't cause Sarah and James any time disadvantage by moving their bags from the cab to the road.

Very true. :tup: But I struggle to recall whether Brian & Ericka's bags were in the taxi or not when they stole it. ???

If their bags were not in the taxi and Sam & Dan stole the taxi without touching their possessions, then maybe Dånooky is right about a penalty for touching property, since Grace clearly has. :tup:

In Season 6 of the American version, Don & Mary Jean got a penalty for "accidentally" driving Adam & Rebecca's car. I'm sure the same principle applies here.

That penalty was because they caused Adam and Rebecca a delay. In taking their car, they forced them to wait at the end of the leg 2 Detour after they had already completed the task.

What about Flight Time and Big Easy moving Ron and Christina's bag and the penalty for that?  I think physically removing someone's stuff from a vehicle, taxi or otherwise, should be a big no-no, as the teams will not find their belongings where they left them.

i reviewed the rules and I read that the penalty only goes if someone used other teams ASSIGNED vehicles and this not include taxis. Don and Mary Jean used the assigned car of the other team so they where penalized while Sam and Dan stole Brian and Ericka's taxi so they haven't penalized. i haven't read any penalties regarding touching others property.

i think the rules related to this one is -Teams are forbidden to hinder the other teams performance by altering the equipment at a task.

Grace and Jo my not get a penalty since they out the bag just on the same place. They did not hide it or whatever assuming touching others property is not a rule.

Just asking a taxi to wait and the driver being talked into taking another team is one thing (kind of like Romber? bribing the ferry captain to leave early (or was it a bus?)), physically removing the other teams stuff crosses a line to me.  Since it was a public location, what if someone came and stole the stuff after it was dumped on the curb?

This was hands-down the best episode of the season in my opinion.

Also, that road block is my dream road block for me to complete, I would absolutely lose my mind out of joy if I got to do that.

Don and Mary Jean used the assigned car of the other team so they where penalized while Sam and Dan stole Brian and Ericka's taxi so they haven't penalized. i haven't read any penalties regarding touching others property.
Just asking a taxi to wait and the driver being talked into taking another team is one thing (kind of like Romber? bribing the ferry captain to leave early (or was it a bus?)), physically removing the other teams stuff crosses a line to me.  Since it was a public location, what if someone came and stole the stuff after it was dumped on the curb?

Well it wasn't just dumped there as the teams met up before the cab left. 
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.

Gosh. I finally caught up. Episode 7. Lucy and Emilia most probably going Alaina and Mel style in Season 1. :lol: They ran a good race!

Paul: Starting position feels so right.. feels where we belong.
Joab: You belong to be in 7th place this leg. Lucky number 7! :)

Twins departure time: 11.48am (VERY CLOSE. VERY CLOSE. CATCH EM PLSPLSPLS)

Okay, that is why I really love the teachers. <3

do I see a London Eye on pic #7? :colors

I'm pretty sure that's in Paris at the Jardins des Tuileries.

That was certainly true when ARAus2 was run, but it had a public closing on Feb. 12, 2012.
There are some very interesting ferris wheels elsewhere.
The Prater in Vienna had 70.3 feet.
The London Eye has 135m and 443 feet.
 The Singapore Flyer is a whopping 150m and 491 feet.
The under-construction Giant Dubai Wheel will be 185m and 703 feet.
