There's another new video uploaded. I think it's about the Russian Soldier's Dance. Can't see it from here :(

Neither do I.  It's a 1.10 minutes sneak peek.  In CBS YTube channel appears as uploaded 10 hours ago.

Despite the fact that the rockers were eliminated :'(, this has to be in my Top 10 episodes of all time. Everything (except the ending) was perfect :luvya:.

I would never doubt the authenticity of the show, but I am a little suspicious of why they did not not show us the start times for each team  :(

Stangely enough, that also happend the SECOND leg the LAST TIME they were in MOSCOW.
My guess for tonight is that it was confusing to put times due to the unusual circumstances of James and Abba's Non-Elimination.

We do know that the first two teams were released before 8 a.m., because that is when the classroom for the roadblock task opened.
And it was sufficiently before so that Trey and Lexi and their cabbie went to several wrong locations before getting there, while Jaymes and James got there a little faster.
It wasn't just at sunrise, either, although that can be measured, since the teams left the pit stop mat outside, not inside.

Well, this episode was filmed June 9, 2012. This is the time of year for Russian white nights. There are not that many hours of darkness @ those latitudes that close to the summer solstice. Sunup came pretty early, relatively speaking.

Really enjoyed both the detour as well as the roadblock.  :tup:
It was nice to see the teams having fun with it as well on both ends..
A shame of course that some of it was determined already at the moment Abba's passport got stolen/he left it behind.
The one thing you should always always keep on your person unless you absolutely can't (such as when swimming..)

I admire the rockers though because they had resilience and were a strong team throughout both mentally and physically (in spite if the knee thing). I hope they'll get a second chance in an all star version some time, they seem like good candidates for it because they performed well untill they got unlucky/careless..

Really looking forward to the next episode..  :hearts: Chippies u-turning someone potentially.. (is it a blind one?)
Really curious about what tasks they'll have done.  :)

I would have liked to have seen Gorky Park and have had Luzhniki Stadium as a Pitstop. Hope they go there if they go to Moscow again!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think it may have been because there was such a large time difference between  departure times of the last 3 teams,  that it would have been obvious early on in the episode who the first 5 teams would have been and who would have been eliminated.

Usually when they show the last two teams racing to the end, they edit it so it seems that the teams are closer than they actually are for the drama factor.

Yes, indeed. Moscow's official sunrise time for 6/9/12 was 447am and the length of a day was 17 hours 25 minutes (implying night for only 8 hours 35 minutes).

The farmers said they were in no danger anyway, and would just have fun in the final tasks in the leg.  So not much suspense there.  The editing can try and make it look close but if the teams involved don't look urgent about going out or not then you know it isn't that close. 
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.

Found an interesting article where James and Abba explain what the Speed Bump involved and they also mention that they were in Russia for six days before the passport situation was resolved.

I wonder what happened to the twins. How did they end up so far behind the two front teams?

In the previous episode we saw them arrive at the road block as the Chippendales where performing it. And that road block did not really look like it took that much time. But in this episode they were way behind. So much that even and hours of operation and an express pass failed to allow them to catch up.

Did they really struggle so much with the tree of love, or was there a task before the road block in this episode which we did not get to see?

^ The twins must have lost a lot of time doing the love tree RB. At some point the one not doing the RB ( I have no idea which one is which!) yelled at the other : "You've wasted more than an hour at this!"
