FWIW, Abbie & Ryan appear to be flying in an Airbus A320, as the seats are consistent with Lufthansa Slimline economy seating.   :)

That does indeed look a lot like the footage!  :tup:

On the site of the museum Geelvinck Hinloopen (one of which I have never visited yet.. my friends visiting here always want to go to the Van Gogh museum, Rijksmuseum or Rembrandt house it seems :P ) it says the garden is open to the public during opening hours of the museum. :)

It's not exactly around the corner from where the teams were spotted near the Red Light District though, so presumably there will be a detour or roadblock before they get to the u-turn? :)

Looks like they're visiting quite a few places all over the city then.  :lol:

Anybody want to hazard a guess about which of 'the most infamous challenges' they might be referring to, bearing in mind it must be done in this city?  :)

ETA: De Prinsengracht location is actually very close to Anne Frank house so maybe they go there after all, but it seems a bit much for just one episode to visit all these locations?  :duno:

There is something significant about #10 Westerkirk on the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam:



Located on the grounds is a memorial to Anne Frank:  panoramio



And the home where she hid Achterhuis is behind the church , just out of view by the steeple.

Thanx Alenaveda, I clearly missed some updates and posts on this matter.  :lol:
But yeah it's just around the corner in fact (I lived just a block away during my student years in fact  :))

It's a big tourist hub though usually with a big queue of tourists waiting in line so I'm not sure how they would arrange that, without being a big disturbance in some way?

Unless they made special arrangements maybe at the end of the day :)

I think is only for the presentation of the city.  After all it's an aerial view.

And here's an updated map with the comfirmation of the RB (again, according to Google maps  :lol:):

U-Turn spec: Chippendales>>Texas; Texas>>Addie\Ryan

I don't see how Abbie and Ryan survive this leg unless it's another NEL. :duno:

I think that this is a non eliminations leg, and we have final five on leg 10 and then final four on leg 11.

Leaving final three on leg 12.

I may be mistaken but i am pretty sure the finale is a double episode in which the 4th place team is eliminated at the end of the 1st hour and the final 3 race in the last hour.

Wow, just saw the preview, would they be dumb enough to book flight to Paris?  :lol:

Anyway Abbie/Ryan flight drama is not shown again, I start to think whether this is as crucial as last time... 

For the u-turn, it doesn't look like Jaymes/James would U-turn Trey/Lexi If Ryan/Abbie really lag behind again as it's not worth doing so... I think they may just U-turn Abbie/Ryan straight away.

Eddie, the two hour finale will cover the last two legs. So TARfanSurvivor can be just as correct as you are.

I personally lean towards this leg being an non-elimination, keeping 5 teams as far into the Race as possible makes good sense, and then with the two hour finale, that will be the final four down to the final three for the sprint home, and that's fine by me.
