  • A million dollars? Drink with Jamy after the show?
Can I say this is the best leg so far, replacing the previous leg in Bangladesh? :conf: :conf: :conf:

This season is definitely getting better and better. All teams turn out to be really likable for me. The challenges are really good. :hrt: And there's no domination of one team! :hearts: We have 4 different winners already, which last season doesn't even have :res:

Next leg looks good too. Flight drama <3333 The lock task <3333 I don't care whether the lock task counts as Switchback or not, but it's always amazing to see lock task :hearts: :hearts:
TAR Greece: Soon. DTAR 2: Soon

Not giving Natalie & Nadiya any penalty at all at the end of leg 6.

i agree im a fan of them and i still say thats not fair.. maybe they did and it didnt affect their placement..

Maybe at the start of the next leg they will depart 30 minutes later? I hope this is the case.

Is it the first time they've let someone steal something for drama?  The first time I've seen this and I was surprised.  I know people have lost stuff before and had to find it but having another team take something they knew belonging to someone else was a bit strange.

That was the main point of interest I thought.  The tasks again were pretty easy.  Eating ice creams and having some massage.

And Lexi could have been ouder than the twins in this episode.  Could get annoying even if she looked cute in that costume.

Otherwise all on the same plane, AGAIN.

Also did Ryan make some nasty remark about locals somewhere?  If so not the first time I think.

It's also possible TPTB didn't learn about the money until the camera crews reached the pit stop, and the video could be reviewed.
Does look like no penalty, unfortunately, but it is possible.

Can't the camera crews phone the pit stop?

In Season 11 Leg 2, teams were made to stand out in the hot sun as they reviewed the tapes to see if any teams were speeding after Kevin & Drew complained.
 
I don't think they review the tapes until after the entire race is over and James & Abba didn't seem to complain either.

But they didn't know that a racer had stolen their money?

The cameraman heard the teams saying they were taking the money which they knew belonged to another racer.

Nadiya and Natalie. Ew. Seriously?

Trey and Lexi, I'm sad they took the money but still, at least they said something like I think you better return it to them.

Most hated team this season. Nadiya and Natalie.

They should literary title every episode TWINNIE~~~~~~ it's annoying.

Oh can I ask how my updating was? It wasn't as good as Polaroids, but I'd like to know. :)


You did great!   :tup:

I don't, if that was the case, the penalty would be nullified by a flight or an HoO.

If the long haired rockers had finished last then surely something would have had to be done, as it was they didn't and I suppose they didn't want to penalise those 2 teams (maybe they see them as important to the program).  Still don't agree with it though.

Also it resulted in race begging, which isn't something I like to see at all.  And in a poor country it's even more unwanted I suppose.

I guess the producers were perfectly fine with it all as the cameras obviously saw it all.

When TPTB learn of a possible rule infraction depends on where it happens. If it happens in the vicinity of a task or cluebox, then there are local producers on hand who can relay the information -- hence, we've seen this season when a team was instruction to go back and take the correct form of transportation to the pit stop.

However, usually (from what I've seen over the years) there won't be a local or traveling producer at a travel agency used by the teams to book travel. Then, TPTB have to look at the video at the pit stop either because a team complained, or because the camera crew reports something to production once they also reach the pit stop. That is when a penalty might have to be assessed on the departure time for the next leg. Even then, we might not hear about it unless it affects the order of departure for the following leg. (Departures last night were pretty well spaced, so a penalty wouldn't have been obvious from the time stamps.)

There has to be a reason why the bit with the money was shown. Whether that reason involves the sisters, or the Rockers, or both we'll have to wait and see. But normally, with the editing on TAR, things get included for a reason, even when it is not immediately apparent.

The sisters will not be penalized because #1, James and Abba misplaced the money.

And that is enough for the TAR Producers to not give a penalty. You are supposed to take care of your own money. It's not like they purposely unzip their race pouch and take the money.

BUT, that doesn't give twinnies or Trexie the right to take the money. It's just disgusting.

The only GREAT thing I liked about this whole incident was we get to see amazing Bangladeshi and people who took great care of the Rockers and helped them when they were in need. Made me learnt a lesson that one can never be too poor to be of help to others. Even mental support will be great. Thank you Bangladeshi FERNS <3! That was really a heartwarming moment and made me momentarily erase my "hate" and "disagreement" with the Twins.

The problem I see is in the CBS editing of this incident to categorize it as "stealing another team's money." Neither the Sri Lankans nor Lexi did that. They merely took advantage by claiming money laying on the floor, which is quite different.

Except they had a good idea whose it was supposedly.  And just because someone leaves it in a place doesn't mean you can just take it, it still belongs to them and is integral to their ability to compete.  The way it was shown was that they hadn't even left it long either and the racers knew that it would adversely affect them and could get them eliminated.  I assume that the producers actually encouraged it and used it as a point of controversy.  Apparently they even advertised this episode as one in which a team steals from another for the first time?  That's what I read somewhere. 

So if someone leaves a passport what should a racer do?  If they have inadvertantly placed it somewhere (where they could of course re-find it, as they would retrace their steps) can someone take it and throw it away somewhere where they would never find it and so be eliminated?

Begging is always wrong on the show, never makes me feel good at all.

Actually I was appalled when they took it while James & Abba were still in the room.

Let's say James & Abba left their fanny pack on the floor intentionally in the corner of a room and went to talk to a travel agent. Does that give Natalie & Nadiya a right to take their fanny pack, since it's left unattended?

For all THEY know, James & Abba could have left that money there on purpose, whilst they do other things.

Concluding with this opinion, I totally agree with you. I remember when the Globetrotters took Christina's fanny pack in Japan by mistake and didn't realize it until later the Pit Stop check-in. The Globetrotters were given the penalty and were told during that rest period. The twins should have been given lesser to no money at the next leg as fair "karma", but I somehow feel it should be that same penalty from Unfinished Business, however a part of my brain is telling me they shouldn't receive it because it technically wasn't in their possession at that time like a dropped piece of litter just lying on the ground. I, I just am confused... :duno:

(I really don't like how they referred to teams as "stupid" AKA "stupid Chippendales" in episode 3 and "stupid rockers" in this episode while racing to that clue box smack dab on the sidewalk. It makes me  :res:)

Since this is a Reality TV forum site, we should send this scenario to the "What Would You Do" producers (has anyone here watched that show and/or seen videos about it?) and see if that idea gets aired on TV!  :tup:

So pretty much, it's not against the rules, and the only thing it goes against is ethics, much like cutting in line.

Yeh I said the producers probably encouraged it, but I don't agree with their decision.  They could get better drama by doing tougher and longer tasks.

Then. God. Frickin. Damn. Return. To. The. Rockers. :res: :res: :res: :res: :res: :res: :res: :res: :res:

Production isn't suppose to ACCEPT THE MONEY OR WHATSOEVER? They just didn't want to return it to James and Abba so as to put them at a disadvantage, it seems. :res: :res: :res: :res:
