TAR 22 Speculation and Discussion **of Spoilers**

<< < (112/142) > >>

SamualDude:
I remember you guys were talking about Shemozzle Racing in Hunterville but I don't know if you guys know this but Hunterville is in near the middle of the North Island so we may be getting two legs in New Zealand.

georgiapeach:
There wasn't time I don't think. TAR can do a "created" race most anywhere though.

Hunterville is too far away from Christchurch, I think there is a possibility the "shemozzle racing" task would be in Lincoln, not far from Christchurch.

Amen! Hunterville is 378 miles from Christchurch, composed of:

North Island Hunterville to Wellington 114 miles
South Island Picton to Christchurch 209 miles
Interisland Ferry Wellington to Picton 55 miles 

So, teams are not going to be sent to Hunterville. However, the competitions from the Shepherd's Shemozzle Festival could easily be duplicated on the South Island. They include:

a cross country Shemozzle with Shepherds and Huntaway dogs (a large, strongly-built breed of dog used for general sheep herding tasks in New Zealand, especially for driving sheep) competing on an endurance and obstacle course
a Sheep shearing competition (done all over the South Island to attract tourists)

I thought I'd indulge in some speculation about the second Express Pass this season. Phil says in his recent TV Guide interview that the holders of the Express Pass get a lot of attention from the other teams that want to be given the second Express Pass. I imagine that they will quickly realize that the second Express Pass puts them in a difficult position. The team that gets the second pass will be very happy and most of the other teams will be upset with them.

One of the things learned from our spoilers is that David of Connor and David gets a leg or Achilles tendon injury in one of the Bora Bora legs. Somehow, according to the timeline, they managed to survive until at least leg 5 despite the fact that David was barely able to walk and was using a wheelchair in some of the sightings. They seems pretty remarkable to me and after thinking it over, I figure that the team that wins the Express Pass in the first leg will end up giving it to Connor and David. The Express Pass would be one way for them to survive a leg.  The other teams can't get too upset about that since Connor and David aren't going to be much of a threat to the other teams and they will be thinking it's only a matter of time until the injury catches up with them and they are eliminated. Given the situation, it's probably the safest play for the team with the Express Pass. Unless they really want to forge an alliance with another team and don't care too much about the other teams.   

I suppose it's possible that Connor and David could win the first leg and get the Express Pass. In that case, forget all of the above.  ;)
