My theory is that James and Abba get Speed-Bumped, but they're too far behind for it to matter. They had to make the last episode a TBC because some teams will be departing before or during the arrival of the last teams, like in TAR 11.

So, may I presume (or at least speculate) that the Twinnies will ExpressPass that roadblock.

Almost definitely!  :lol:

They have to use it in this leg, and I don't see why you'd use it on a Detour.

I disagree with Prophet on both parts of his thesis. James and Abba have a 10 hour cushion to locate Abba's passport and if they do so the speed bump for an NEL would be between Ryan/Abbie and Brent/Josh.

Because that time differential is only 10 hours, I see no reason why World Race Productions cannot manage the length of the pit stop to avoid some teams departing before the last 2 arrive.

Um, they might need to have teams to depart at a certain time to keep production ahead, but still manage to have the trailing teams catch up and not fall too far behind.

I just don't see why they would have done the impromptu TBC thingy if teams aren't going to leave before or during the time others arrive.

James and Abba will need all the help they can get to find their passports in that city, lol.

I just watched an episode 8 promo while Survivor. It showed teams "getting schooled" on Russian language? It sounds like another Burkina Faso to me.

And it also shows Abbie "ripping her pants" :lol: on the Russian military cheerleading squad.  :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

Ok guys, I don't know if it helps but I re-watched the preview and kept pausing it. I took this picture with my phone..sorry it looks bad but it might be a closer look of the Speed Bump board. All of you can check it yourself too. In the preview, keep pausing at between 0:06 and 0:07. Again..sorry for the bad quality

There's a pic in the board.

From judging by the blurry (yet still visible) face heights, the Speed Bump-ers will be Abbie & Ryan since they are the only team out of the still racing leg 7 which have a bigger height difference and when I zoom in on my iPhone, I can faintly see Ryan's "silhouette" in the picture.

Hemm.. I frist thought the same kandace, it might be the beekmans, but then I look at it closer, the couple's head are at the same level, where as beekmans are not, and from the blurred enlarge size that peach and alen posted, seems like a white/blonde couple, and their heads are opposite each other, where as the beekmans facing the same point of view straight.. I don't know, it's my pure spec and feelings..  :tup:

I couldn't identify anything from the speed bump photo, all I could see it's that the team probably wear dark coloured clothes, in which it doesn't look like Josh/Brent who wear red in the picture. I think we need to dig out Leg 3 U-turn part to see the background of all team photos.

Also, I agree with Prophet that maybe it took James/Abba more than 10 hrs to find the passport (if they could find it).  I think there are 2 situations which they would put a TBC ending here:-

1) James/Abba couldn't find the passport and couldn't start the next leg at all
2) James/Abba could find it but after Trey/Lexi started the next leg

With the help of HoO Ryan/Abbie and Josh/Brent would only be late for around 7-8 hrs, so I don't think they took 3-4hrs more than other teams to make Trey/Lexi started next leg before them.  Also, James/Abba obviously spent more time (maybe 2-3hrs more) than other teams to complete last leg tasks, so if they did spent 3-4 hrs looking for the passport, they may even be the last team check in.

One question, I feel that Ryan/Abbie and Josh/Brent would step on the mat together for the last leg, if they really did so and were the last 2 teams, who would get the speed bump?

I agree with kandace, it must be the rockers.

It is definitely the rockers.  I just paused EP 3 at the U-Turn board, the picture of Josh/Brent have them wearing red shirts and the picture of Ryan/Abby looks like it was taken at a beach and Ryan is wearing a light blue shirt.
