Interesting to notice that there's now a smaller box attached to the U-turn photos box. Makes me wonder if it's for the courtesy of photo, meaning teams no longer have to carry it around?

Also no other cluebox in sight --> is the guy in blue there to give the next clue? Spec: Maybe he's a shipyard worker and tell them to head to the Monument to the Fallen Shipyard Workers (from spoilers)

so does that mean they got U-turned?

that be-statues task were absolutely a detour
and in cap 22-23, they looked like they were doing a dancing task together, which could possibly be another side of the detour
and they seemed very upset.

oh my fu*cking god! are you fu*king kidding me!

Then I doubt they get the Express Pass honestly, because they would've used it, especially if they were on the second flight.

#11 #12 makes me think that a U-turn has been used on one team when Leo & Jamal reached (second one is definitely unused then). The first slots seem to be occupied already.

I agree. Because we can not see the background in the first slot

What I find interesting is I don't believe we see Tim/Marie in costume anywhere. So which detour did they use their EP on?? :lol:

I think I might found something interesting. The detour (?) task with dancing might took place in Zielona Brama (the Green Gate Museum) Just between the end of Długa Street (where the Neptune statue is) and Motlawa River (by which we see the U-Turn box). Found some pictures of the inside so take a look and let me know if it may be there:

Yes, that's better matched! I looked only at the preview after the episode and the picture but the other promo clearly showes that it's not an empty room like in the Green Gate but with the columns in the middle like this ;)

 :groan:  there appear to be "many" old town halls in Gdansk.... was wondering where those "triple windows" were....

The old town hall we want is called "Ratusz Starego Miasta". (not to be confused with the other, larger "old town hall" which pops up on searches.)  This one is much smaller.

The Old Town Hall we are looking for is on Kościerska Street, not so close to Długa Street with Neptun's Fountain and to The Old Crane where the U-turn seems to be located.

 :umn:  Maybe the "donut" thing is a Route Marker Roadblock task.  What if racer is looking through apartment buildings for specific address, where they have to eat a homemade Polish donut (pączki) before they receive their next clue.   or maybe not....  hey, it's a stretch...  ;)


...they could be stuck roaming the vast socialist style block apartments for hours looking for the address

Distance wise it would make sense if the Detour Decision was at the Monument to the Fallen Shipyard Workers? That would mean one side of the Detour is closer to the Detour Decision, and the other closer to the W-Turn.

was wondering if TAR visited the shipyard while in Gdansk.... (yes they were at the memorial)... but could the racers be near the shipyard in the picture below...  pipes are not the same, but similar... something you would find at the shipyard (see inset).  Just throwing this out there....

If you see the pic of the guys, there's a sign who make reference to a hall (Sala BHP) that is near the monument. We've been looking for halls: maybe they were taken to the wrong one?

Good thought!
 
Quote
In the period of 2006-2010, BHP Hall, located in the post-industrial area once
belonging to the Gdańsk Shipyard, was extensively
renovated.

 

     In summer 2010, BHP Hall
opened to the public as a conference and exhibition centre. The renovation and
adaptation of the building was possible thanks to the great determination of
people involved, and thanks to the Trade Union’s own resources and the support
from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, as well as many other
donors. The anniversary exhibition THERE IS ONLY ONE “SOLIDARNOŚĆ” added
splendour to the ceremony of the historic BHP Hall reopening on August 24, 2010.
The exhibition, in a little different form, can be seen till
today.

 

     The one-storey part of the
building houses three exhibition halls, including two designed for conferences
or video shows with their own sound systems and multi-media equipment. The
ground-floor rooms have a capacity of 300 people. On the first floor there are
two lecture rooms for 30 people each. They are fully equipped with the dedicated
state-of-the-art audio-visual system.

     We would like
BHP Hall, rooted in August 1980 Agreement, to attract people believing in the
broad idea of solidarity, which would let us proudly call it an open place,
through inspiring conferences and quality exhibitions.

in preview we can see that in the time when Afghanimals arrive at U-Turn station the first slot is filled.. and then Jamal says "we have to U-Turn someone".. can we conclude that Afghanimals got U-Turned and then they U-Turn someone else? :funny:

This U-Turn board from the commercial seems to be in a completely different location than the one in the "next time on the amazing race" promo. Perhaps a double u-turn board from later in the race? If so, where is it located and what leg would that information place it on?

still looks somewhere europe-y to me. how long were they in europe? or was it back-to-back like in season 19?
maybe it's only for the shot. when teams encountered it, it was moved somewhere else where there weren't so many people passing it by ...

probably. yes I thought i was the only one to notice that. the first slot is definitely used. see caps no.12 of the first preview
someone used it on them oh my god!   :hoot:
i really hoped ass-animals use theirs in this leg so that in the next one they won't be eligible to use it.

but I have a bad feeling ass-animals used theirs on team oklahoma. If so I'll be pissed!!!! Completely!!! I hope they choked on that Poland donuts!

I guess it's the same spot but in the picture the board is facing the Motlawa River and when the teams arrive there it's facing the old crane

 :ascared  Not totally sure on this one, but this may be where the "donut" challenge took place. (if not, then it should have).

Gdansk is where the longest residential building (in Europe) is found, known as the "falowiec" (wavy block).  Nearly a half mile long.  How could BVM pass up such a devious search challenge.  Try to find an address here!  Just throwing this out there, FWIW.   ;)

falowiec article

I think you may be right on that! I found a short polish documentary about this building and we can see the reporter coming in - for me it looks similar as the caps from the episode. (look form 2:58)

http://uwaga.tvn.pl/10973,wideo,55275,falowiec_-_poziomy_wiezowiec,falowiec_-_poziomy_wiezowiec,reportaz.html

I read some time ago that in one of the flats english princess Anne, daughter of Queen Elizabeth II had a supper (in 1991). Maybe they're going to find that particular flat?



I wonder if we may identify the actual entrance to this building - there are only 16 of such?

FOUND IT! It's the entrance 4B! We can see the crate in the window on the right from the entrance! Just like on the first cap of Marie from that place! (made by Google Street View)

From the pics, I think the Afghanimals were u-turned. (1) The 1st u-turn slot was already taken when they got there, (2) Jamal said, "We have to u-turn someone," (3) Jamal was wearing the dance outfit from the dance detour, (4) Leo said, "We might be in last place right now," (5) and if I'm not mistaken, ??? there was a spoiler pic showing that they were performing the statue detour.

I'm just wondering who u-turned them. ???

And also, pic 21 is not long beards, I think it might be Oklahoma, I'm just not sure though. ???

My theory: Someone u-turned Afghanimals, then Afghanimals u-turned Oklahoma (maybe because Afghanimals were sure Oklahoma were behind)

I will be surprised if it was one of the couple team, or Brandon and Adam
I am leaning towards Nicky and Kim or Tim and Danny (if they were actually ahead, and as Danny stated in leg #3)

and yes, It absolutely was not The Ice Queens.

well look on the bright side. Leo and Jamal used their shot this leg. Next double u-turn pops out, they ain't got nothing... NOTHING!!!!

With the iPads, I thought teams no longer had to carry their courtesy of photo? And this season it seems to go back to traditional choosing a team photo and pasting it up? Maybe it was too fragile to bring the iPads around. :funny:

I actually think Afghanimals get U-Turned by any of the teams except Ice Crew to be honest. Almost all the teams hate them :lol:

And there was a spoiler or a live sighting of them doing the statue and talking about a U-Turn. I guess they did the Statue task first, then got U-Turned.

i beg to differ, I think they did the statue thingy after they did the dancing

u see, in the preview, ass-animals arrived at the U-Turn mat the first time with their dancing gear on. And in that moment one of them also said "we gotta u-turn someone"
and just to be clear, also in that moment, one slot of the U-turn board was utilized, and the second one was still null. :)

I am curious
do you think all the other teams just agreeing upon u-turning the "Ice-ganimals" alliance, with the animals being u-turn first?
was it like last season when every other teams except for Team Youtube and RollerDerby moms made a pact to u-turn Team Youtube,you know, whoever arrives first at the board would do it.

if so, that means Nicky and Kim were first on that board because when they arrived, both slots were still empty. I'll be surprised!!!!  :wohoo:

Chateau has suggested that the reason we have HOLES in the board is that an iPad could be popped in there? Funny to have a hole for a picture alone, lol.

then why there was a box with team pictures in it attached to the board? and there was a smaller box attached to that box?
if an ipad was to be popped in there, there has to be something behind or near the board for power supply and maintenance and stuffs

i think they switch it back to using pictures because it would be more clear when the camera is taking a fast shot on the board, especially since the board was in open area. If they were using ipad, there should be a little refraction from the camera to the ipad screen possibly because of the sunlight, which will make the the records unfocused. The camera crew will have to take a moment to actually focus the camera and take a shot on the board, which will slow the team for a bit :)

and why HOLES were on the board, maybe so that the teams just attach the picture on that hole and get a move on. The previous version has teams to remove the sticker from the picture first and and then attach it to the board. this way it was a little bit longer and not efficient, I think. :)

It seems Jason & Amy finish the Detour before Tim & Danny, then we see Marie and Amy together at the Donut task. So it means that Tim & Marie are in the front, right? And they do not wear any costume so they used EP?

Impossible to guess placements from this clip. Jason Amy could be 2nd to last...or first. No way to tell.

Impossible to guess placements from this clip. Jason Amy could be 2nd to last...or first. No way to tell.

Yeah but the high chance is that they're in the front. Anyway, we're sure that Tim & Marie use EP, right?

I don't know where you got the fact that we're sure from.
Where do we go now?

It seems Jason & Amy finish the Detour before Tim & Danny, then we see Marie and Amy together at the Donut task. So it means that Tim & Marie are in the front, right? And they do not wear any costume so they used EP?

OR the Roadblock is first.

No, Detour is first. Amy was seen with her dancing costume at the RB. From what I believe, Tim/Marie used EP at the statue task so that's why they gained some time.

Because Marie does not wear any uniform in her and Amy's scene.

I am pretty sure some teams aren't happy with Tim/Marie too. Perhaps they EP-ed to avoid getting U-Turned?

Tim and Danny (or one of them) did look terribly depressed in the "kilogram/kilometre" confessional, and theirs is one of the nighttime interviews...
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

If you have twitter you shpould check out the exchange of tweets between Tim (@tim_sweeney_), Marie (@reebsicle), Amy (@TheRealAmyDiaz), and Jason (@JasonCase).  Pretty funny stuff.  They have been tweeting about Tim and Jason's polka dance together and Marie stealing the cab in the next episode for the last day or so!  :funny:

It seems like these 4 are good friends now...

Maybe they just weren't really great friends during the stress of the Race, most likely due to Marie's behavior.  But once both teams had a chance to calm down, maybe they found the whole cab thing funny.  There are times when people do things that don't seem so funny but later on, you may laugh at how serious the whole thing seemed when it really was very trivial.

But I'd find Tim & Jason's polka dance together rather funny as well.

The rose donut showed up in 8C/45, halfway down the list. Usually in TAR, when teams have to search a field/body of water/list of items, the goal is almost never first or last: teams would have better luck starting at 1/3 or 2/3. That's why (to me, anyway) the halfway point was surprising: if teams collaborate and split the playing field, one of the teams would score in short order.

I'm not sure if this should be in episode 3 or 5, but I'll put it here. My hat is off to an observant blogger who caught an editing game that occurred in Episode 3 in Lisbon and Episode 5 in Gdansk. According to the show footage, Nicky and Kim in Portugal and Tim and Danny in Gdansk had the exact same cab driver!

http://theroyalhalf.com/amazing-race-recap-episode-5/

Look for the video about half way down the page for the comparison. The driver looks more Polish than Portuguese, so I suspect he was Tim and Danny's cab driver in Gdansk. I presume they liked his smile, so they edited him in when Nicky and Kim gave each other a small kiss in the cab.  :o
