  • CONGRATULATIONS TO NAT & KAT, WINNERS OF TAR 17!
I'd have advised the NFL players not to take the risk, mainly because I would have been afraid that they'd have such short layovers in the connecting cities that the risk might not be worth the reward.  But instead, every flight they seemed to get was delayed!  Talk about a Murphy's Law leg -- whatever could go wrong, did!

"Chester & Ephraim arrived in Lisbon hours after the remaining teams, after encountering a flight delay in Buenos Aires, a missed connection in São Paulo, and a rerouting through London. After all other teams had already checked in at the Pit Stop, Phil is at Lisbon Portela Airport and they were eliminated."

Wow, haven't watch the episode but that is certainly epic.

I completely agree. :) I can't wait to watch the episode tonight. :cheer: Just from the posts in this thread, I think there will be lots of "what if"s. The flight drama is making me pretty impatient right now. :tantrum Poor ChesEph. :( I feel so sorry for them. :torche They happen to be another victim of the 9th place finish curse.

Sad to see the NFL boys go. Those flight delays killed them!

It was very brutal to go out like that. I do not like Tim and Marie. Wished they were eliminated!

Brutal, the Footballers were booked by the travel agent for the wrong day, otherwise they would have been on the 7AM with Travis & Nicole. They were the first to get tickets, but they were for the next day. Imagine their shock.

It bothers me that they are trying to get clues from people and give them their express pass and then not keeping their word. I hope they go home soon!

That travel agent did not do a good job. From first to last because of that.

OMG This episode. So many mixed feelings about it.

LOVE Portugal! So beautiful, I need to get a map or something and start placing pins on it for places I need to visit in my life. Portugal is definetly on the list.

I'm not usually a fan of Airport drama, I've never like it because it takes away all control from the teams and what happened to Chester&Ephraim was just the worst luck I've ever seen in the race in so long. Honestly if I was them I wouldn't have risk it, I mean their travel agent even booked a better flight for Brandon&Adam soooo yeah...

What have we learned in this season so far... 1. Read your clue carefully! 2. Route Markers are Red and Yellow! and 3. Don't separate yourself from the pack!... All new rules by the way, never happened before  :crazy:

Even though I don't like Airport drama I have so much respect for Nicky&Kim right now, that was a really smart move, they race this leg extremely well, getting a new vibe from them, they just move up on my list so fast.  :hearts:

So annoyed by Leo&Jamal + Ashley&Ally combo, I wonder when Ashley&Ally are going to realize they would race better without them, it hasn't help them at all, look at Tim&Danny they got away from the afghanimals and got a better place, also Leo&Jamal lying the entire time was really annoying, the more I get to see from them, the more I wish I don't know about them.  blahblah

Love the collaboration between Jason&Amy and Nicole&Travis, they just race well, they worked together but they didn't affect everyone else because of it, they just got a huge leap from the rest of the teams. I LOVE IT  :yess: :hearts:

I already got tired of Tim&Marie, Marie is such a controller freak, they way she is using the express pass to get control over the team is annoying especially because NOBODY cares anymore, they looks like they would just prefer to don't get it at all than keep sucking up to Marie.

Didn't care much about the roadblock, but really like both detours, both required a higher level of concentration, have I said I love when teams get items as clues? because I do, a painting of a couch sending them to the coach museum, GENIUS, the pitstop location was just beautiful, such a nice view, just AMAZING  :hearts:

Such a great episode, feel really bad for Chester&Ephraim, but what you gonna do, but at least if there is ever an unfinished business 2, guess who is on the top of the list.

Marie <3 for not using EP at Detour and did all the thing by her own. It seems two Roadblocks for Tim & Marie <3
I'm not happy with this leg just because the flight affects too much to the final results.

This is like Azaria and Hendekea all over again. Always check your flights. First on whether or not it's economy, then check the date, and finally... ALL OTHER DETAILS. T_T

This is not really the case, as the fault was entirely on the travel agent and the airlines
The story so far:

This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

But they didn't notice the mistake earlier? I mean, couldn't they have like realized something was wrong and immediately rectify it?

It's kinda the travel agent's fault why Chester & Ephraim got eliminated:

1. Put the wrong date of flight (which ultimately lead Travis & Nicole to get the flight).
2. Booked them in a flight with 2 connections, really!?
3. Didn't tell them about the 10:00 am flight arriving at Lisbon that would've been much better, instead she only told this flight to Brandon & Adam and Tim & Danny.

I feel sorry for them just because of that one little mistake. :(
I'm a mystery you will never find out about.

The mistake happened while the tickets were being booked, the lady entered the wrong date during the process which allowed Nicole & Travis to snatch the last tickets on the flight. There was nothing E&C could have done.

Actually... all 3 have happened before. For #3, remember back in S14, when the recipients of the 9th place finish curse took a small risk separating themselves from the pack actually cost them the race?

Wait, the NFL boys did have the flight that are same as the rest, but chose to take the risk.. I mean it's the lady at the counter's fault but... they chose to take it?? So... why is it that they are not somewhat to be blamed for the decision as well?

If they did not choose to take risk, they might get the flight as Okla guys or Brandon & Adam or at least the same flight as Tim & Marie.
At first, it was the travel agency's fault which help Nicole & Travis to get on 7:00AM flight but it was not the travel agency's fault for the rest.

Yea, that was what I thought as well. I mean, they were initially previously on the same flight as Jason and Amy I think?? But because the travel agent told them of a better flight, they chose to take a risk. So now I get the context that the travel agent realized the mistake and she screwed the boys for just the first flight.. but if they actually chose to take what they have, they would be just fine?

I'm so sad for Chester and Ephraim. They were so POSITIVE throughout and did not even whine that much. They were so pumped up once arriving in Portugal and you could literally see how they rushed out of the arrival gate searching for taxi and such. And sneaky Phil just come out from round the corner to burst their dreams and hope... :( AND, am I the only one who totally thinks that Phil looks like a grumpy man who just woke up from his sleep as he had to eliminate the boys? Look at that messy hair! :funny:

But now they at least 100% gets one slot in UB 2 (if it happens). And at least they won something before they left.

I agree with some of you, this season brings back some of the memories of the earlier seasons (TAR 5 EP3, Jim and Marsha eliminated... anybody?) where flights play such a huge factor, along with luck, skills and everything that comes along. I actually really liked the editing, where it's again a fight for first place and it was so fun to watch Jason and Amy and the ER Doctors work so well with each other.

I like that Leo and Jamal are being who they are and assisting the girls (cause they like them) while at the same time completely being nasty to Tim and Marie. I was surprised Tim and Marie even caught up to Leo and Jamal and the Icecrew Girls! So that's really quite an amount of time shed off the time that they had fallen behind. Finally got to see more of Tim and Danny and Brandon and Adam, who also were having so much fun with the tasks this leg!

Nicky and Kim's MIRNA moment was the star play this leg. Honestly, from last place to getting on the first flight. That's really some major luck plus bunny charm at work man! Just wished that they could have been more competitive and gave us a three way fight for first place. Would have been awesome and fun to watch.

And poor Chester and Ephraim. EVERYTHING went wrong. I think we have officially found the team with the WORST luck ever of THREE DELAYED flights in a leg. Abbie and Ryan would not approve of the circumstances they had to go through. :funny:

Loved the Detour, was a matter of BRAINS or SKILLS. And the Roadblock was an easy but REALLY fun one to watch. <3 this leg!!

I don't think so... GREAT UB STORY but they would need to make a few more leg to make an impression I think.

And when was the last time we had a team who went from first to last this early in the race?? (Not counting Dave and Connor last season who quit or teams in the final 4/5 where it's easy to make a mistake and easily become last place)

I think it's Connor and Jonathan in TAR 17 during the final 9 leg 4?

That's one of the things that I always take note of when a team gets eliminated. :)
