Y'all are making it way too complicated. ;)

That sounds familiar to me.  Why?

Apologies Alenaveda, I thought I'd read it somewhere already.

It makes the most sence to me, since we had that leg 2 clue saying: "The winner of this leg will win the Express Pass". What would the winner of leg 1 otherwise win?


Express Pass On leg 2 ???  where does it say that ???

For the winners of leg 1 maybe they will use the amazing race australia idea and use the Salvage Pass  :duno:

GA895, most racers are in this flight.

Clue is
make your way to the Alun Alun in Bangkalan and "roll" with the bulls

The winner of this leg will win Express Pass!!!!!!

Teams were flying from Shangai to Surabaya, Indonesia in the start of Leg 2.  Reta saw the clue at the airport.

What if the first team to win the STARTING LINE TASK also got the chance to win the extra money?

Of course, I would HATE this if the SLT was luck-based... But from the spoilers I don't think so.

I haven't seen this, so there are spoilers that prove there is a SLT? :)

it could be the salvage pass or a vote for the U turn, like they did in last years Australia race. The vote for the U turn come out of the Israel edition I think. I do think they need something different, voting for the u turn I like, if one team is getting a big lead and pissing off all the other teams, it would bring them back in the race unexpectedly

The extensive use of hours of operation and waiting for transportation makes it high probability that no team will get "way out in front". The last time that happened was Mirna/Charla in AR11 and before that Colin/Christie in AR5.

Also, in TAR 11 Dustin and Kandice got way in front of everyone else. I remember that in Leg 7 in Poland they were like four or five hours ahead of the nearest team and they started Leg 8 before a team or two finished Leg 7. I might have got a detail or two wrong, but thats the gist of what I remember.

YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST! :tup:

Thanks everyone!! :jumpy:

But hmmmm, I also do not believe that $2 million is the whole story.

My theory is that the $2 million grand prize will ONLY be offered to the team that wins Leg 1; if a team wins both Leg 1 and the Final Leg, they will win $2 million instead of $1 million.

I think this makes sense, if you look at the evidence:

 
  • We have reason to believe that the Express Pass was given out to the winners of Leg 2, so it would fit that the $2 million grand prize is the prize for winning the first Leg.
  • The last two teams to win Leg 1 (Ernie & Cindy, Rachel & Dave) have won the Race.
  • Furthermore, the last time a team won the first leg and failed to make the Final 3 was Season 16 (Jeff & Jordan), and before that, it was Season 12 (Azarea & Hendekea). The team that wins Leg 1 typically finishes the entire Race, even before the Express Pass came into existence, so the excitement of a team possibly winning $2 million would last throughout the whole season.

Yes, there was some information about the switchback in the official cast reveal article:
'Teams will also face one of the game's "most infamous Roadblocks" in the Netherlands in this season's "Switchback," the network added.'

Having watched this task happen, I can tell you that there was no haste.  Teams rappeled with the enthusiasm of a 6th grade PE class.   :lol3:

You can see many of the spoiler pics from that day in the Location thread! And all the individual rapelling pics in the contestant threads. Chateau was awesome!!

Heee, always nice when TPTB start/end the race in RFF's own backyards!

Yes! And they call us stalkers...  :lol3:

(TBH about that, if they decide to start the race in the middle of the desert, we probably have the pics the same day; only because that day one of us would be coincidentally doing anything a couple miles from that place  :lol:)

Famous roadblocks in the Netherlands... None come to mind. The best roadblock, besides Haybales, is FRANZ... Maybe they will do something similar here?

Jet and Cord are still the best!!! Bring them back!

The Netherlands Roadblocks History

Season 4, Leg 5

In the Roadblock, one team member to get on a marked boat and using only their hands to catch 25 eels and put them in a marked container. Only the fisherman would get their next clue.

Season 12, Leg 2

In the Roadblock for this leg, one team member had to play a sport called fierljeppen by completing a single vault over a 12 feet (3.7 m) wide irrigation ditch and landing on both feet on the marshy grass at the other side.

Season 15, Leg 7

In this leg's Roadblock, one team member had to climb to the top of the Martinitoren and count all of the bells in the carillon. When they gave the right number (62) to the carillonneur, they would receive their next clue. If they provided the wrong number, they would have to climb back up to the carillon to count again. This Roadblock's hint is a reference to the first (aired) Roadblock ever on The Amazing Race.

I bet it's the season's 4 roadblock since season's 12 is WAY to easy co call "infamous" and season's 15 "secret answer" is no longer a secret

I'm still hoping it's 'one of the race's most infamous roadblocks', but done in The Netherlands only this time :S Because of these 3, I'd only like to see 15th season's RB, and it's not really possible...

The switchback task might not be a task that was origanalily a roadblock (im thinking either detour option on TAR15 that cost Maria & Tiffany the race)
