Here are a few caps from the 'Sneak Peek'

Wait...they touched another team's property...I'm pretty sure that will cause a penalty.
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

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.

I'm not talking about time disadvantages, I'm talking about touching other team's property

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.

Taking the taxi is different to driving someone elses car.

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.

That's another situation where Ron and Christina's stuff was moved far enough away from where they were left that Chris & Ron couldn't find them immediately, and wasted time looking for their fanny pack.

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.

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

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 and Steve's departure time: 11.42am
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)

Lucy and Emilia... : Fly to... *SCREAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMS* France.

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.
