And it begins.

Recap of last leg.

Intro

The leg begins by highligthing Calgary even though it didnt finish there.

Route info: FLY TO YELLOWKNIFE, NORTHWEST TERRITORIES and get to Bush pilot monument.

They leg in the early morning.  Jet Dave left at 3:23 (didnt get the other two)

The sisters leave at 3:50.

Now the scene where the sisters cut the line by asking people to cut the line. Jet and Dave/Hippies/Bodybreak are not happy.

Darren says he feels stupid giving them the express pass.

Holly and Brett leave at 4:30. Tims leave at 4:37am. No teams know that it was a NEL. LOL Tims walk in all happy.

All the teams are on the 6am.

Teams only have a dollar for this leg of the race.

All teams are flying via Edmonton.

Tims arrive first to clue.

Route info: Make your way to Government Dock and run half a mile to a Bed and Breakfast. to find next clue.

Holly and Brett arrive first at docks.

Vanessa/Celina having navigation issues.

Roadblock: Who wants to do a lot of Shak'in?

Polar Bear Dip - dive in cold water and retrieve clue.

Holly is doing the roadblock.

Roadblock is very easy. No chance to fail.

Route info:

One of three flights leaving 20 mins. And fly to Carcross, Yukon Territory. Note sure where they are departing from.

Cory, Hal and Tim Jr do the roadblock.  Cory jumped in so fast he missed the clue so someone did fail -__- lol

Sisters in last with Kristen and Darren.

Tims bud Jet and Dave and get booed by the crowd.

So rb performers: Holly, Cory, Hal, Tim Jr, Dave, Darren, (not sure about the sisters).

Commercial.

Holly and Brett on flight one, Jet and Dave (only two teams)

Celina does the roadblock.

They are in 6th.  Darren jumps in and gets the clue right behind.

Drama between bodybreak.

Tims sign up for flight two, and the army bros sign up on flight 3 when a spot left.  :groan:

The sisters lost their key to their car and now fall into last.

Back from commercial.

Hal and Joanne refuse too (rightfully so)

Holly and Brett first.

Detour: Yukon supply Run or Klondike Gold Rush

Lake Bennett, assemble raft and retrieve clue from lake.

Gold rush: Complete three pioneer activities.

Jet and Dave do gold and the doctors do supply (and they have no idea what they are doing).

Flight 2 arrives.

Both teams find their clue. Speed Bump: Yukon wild fence. The shooting of ____ and Robert Service (look alike, the real RS is dead) will give them their next clue. 4 verses. They need to memorize the whole poem.

Bodybreak does gold.

Tims fail on their first time.

Sisters say they might need to use express pass.

Now the doctors are using their raft to get to the clues

Commercial.

The Army bros think its done for them cuz the other two teams have EP.

Sisters and Kristen/Darren arrive at detour. They choose the raft detour.

The sisters use the EP!! WOW

The Army bros can't run fast cuz of Jody's legs.

Jet and Dave finish first (foreshadowing earlier).

Hal and Joane finish detour and are in third.

Vanessa and Celina go to detour and use ep

They had to use RTVs to get to the pitstop

Jody and Cory do gold rush.

Jet and Dave arrive first. Greeter is a women in a dress: Welcome to Yukon the land of the midnight sun.

Prize: All inclusive trip to Cancun Mexico.

Doctors in second

Hal and Jo in third.

Sisters in 4th. However because they need to get their bags before checking in! lol They dropped it while running.

YAY!!!! Amazing Finish!

Re: Jody and Cory's bags. When Vanessa and Celina dropped theirs, Jon said that he couldn't see them. Sounds like teams can drop their bags so long as it's in sight of the Pit Stop. Jody and Cory's bags can be seen in the background while Kristin and Darren are walking up to the Pit Stop.

And one more week until I can share ALL my photos and videos and stories from Regina. I KNEW it was a Double U-Turn! Now to see if my assumption of who u-turned whom is correct.

WOW, THAT FINISH WAS CRAZY. I'm having issues with some of these tasks though... What was with the roadblock? No challenge or opportunity for switching positions... Really didn't like the roadblock.

I was shocked that Kristen & Darren were eliminated... I probably would have bet money they would make it to the end! I don't feel like their EP elimination was as bad as Jessica & John though. :lol: I thought they were going to outrun Jody & Cory, but I'm kind of glad they didn't. :-[

I kind of enjoyed having to watch Vanessa & Celina run and suffer a little bit. :lol: I didn't know that there was a backpack rule like that.

Happy that Jet & Dave got first. I guessed from the foreshadowing at the beginning of the episode. :lol:

Excited for the full details, saskvagabond!

What a crazy leg! Hard to root against Kristen & Darren, but I really wanted the Brothers to stay in the race.

=====================
Bodybreak left at 2:10, I think.

So, for the ice-water dip - why, when Cory forgot to get the clue, didn't he have to get back in line?  But then, why not just jump in without the tie line rather than waiting in line in the first place?  It was easy enought to jump right to the ladder.

I think at that time, there are no other teams so Cory did not need to get back in line and could do it again immediately.

My thoughts of this episode:
- I agree with Polaroid! The Roadblock was poorly designed. It only took less than 15 seconds to complete! :groan: I'm thinking the production hoped for some drama, but eventually it didn't happen.
- I really love the Speed Bump. However, I wished for they show in which part the Tims are wrong (like TAR19's Leg 1 Confucius Roadblock).
- The Detour also wasn't really original enough, because we've seen some parts in other seasons.
- Kudos for Vanessa & Celina for not wasting the EP and used it. I think they would've been eliminated instead if they didn't use it.
- Once again, overconvidence made another team with EP eliminated. This time, because Kristen & Darren too confident with the fact that they can row a raft. I wonder that they didn't realized that in fact they're in bottom three position after arriving in Yukon. If I were them, I would have use it that time.
- I'm getting annoyed by Holly and her breakdowns (yeah, with "s")! Looks like in next episode she will have another breakdown... :groan:

I can't believe they left Northwest Territories like 5 seconds after they arrived. <///////////3

But I loved this leg! There's something about TAR and Express Passes and Leg 4! :lol:

If the Double Express Pass twist is still in play for TAR23 and the team who win Leg 1 are eliminated Leg 4 with an EP, then there might be a curse somewhere in there :o
