This leg was also great for me, loved the Detour, the RB was good as well!
And I loved the pier as the Pit Stop <3

This season is finally getting their groove on. :lol:

Note: They had to search for a foreman so the speculated memory challenge could be real. :o

And as is customary- It's time for the episode awards!

Winners: Nicky and Kim for getting over their general Not-Being-Much-Good for a leg and getting themselves from last to 4th

Losers: The reverse- Brandon and Adam for going from 1st to last

The Russell Hantz "Surely You Saw This Coming" Award goes to Ally and Ashley. The Ice Girls have come 7th in the last four legs, and by my calculations, 7th is last next week.

The Kynt Award for Best Feminine Clothing on a Male goes to Tim for his wonderful portrayal of a Polish Polka Princess.

Leg 5 (Norway --> Poland) Analysis
Might I say this was better than the premiere and Leg 3 in Lisbon. First off, I'd like to comment Gdansk has some beautiful architecture that has a mix of the old (Detour and U-Turn location) and the new (Roadblock at record-length apartment complex). Really great place to see and visit. However, the Detour didn't really show it. I expected better in a wonderful country like Poland than choosing between standing like a statue or dancing like the Baroque.

"Pose", doesn't look too difficult... wrong! You could see Nicky & Kim and Brandon & Adam shaking and falling off that soapbox stand, but I don't like the concept of earning money this way. It provided a nickel-sized amount of entertainment and it felt like the TAR21 Dutch jukebox Detour choice all over again. "Polka" is fun and exciting, especially when the camera coins Nicole's smile during her finish on the ERs' first attempt. Nonetheless, it's not really that original or culturally unique. You could do the same thing in Greece, Sweden, or Serbia and still have the same fun.
DETOUR SCORE: 7/10

The Roadblock was great! "You can be penalized for bad manners!" :lol: Teammates going into random residents' homes to sample paczkis was really a great round of fun. Something great for TAR23 to remember by. This looks super difficult as the apartment complex is over the stretch of almost 10+ American football fields. The only criticism I can think of is the music played. I wish they added some of the tensionful and adventurous soundtracks from TAR13 in Kazakstan or Russia during this task being aired. (Resident that looks like Wynona as the clue giver! :hearts:)
ROADBLOCK SCORE: 9/10

Sopot Pier is stunning. A must visit if you are willing to get a close-up of the notable Baltic Sea. Sadly, Brandon & Adam being eliminated was really disappointing.
PIT STOP SCORE: 8/10

Other random scores of this Leg:
TRAVEL DRAMA SCORE: 10/10
HUMOR SCORE: 8/10
U-TURN BOARD UPDATE SCORE: 7/10
SOUNDTRACK SCORE: 4/10

With the (sad) music and their confessional, I felt like I was very sad for their elimination even more than I expected to be!

Hopefully, next week, Ice Girls are still 7th and get eliminated. :lol: JK

What an episode this was... It was such a good episode.

The frustration when Nicky&Kim run pass the U-Turn board!  :gaah: 

The OMG YES! Moment when I saw the U-Turn being the picture base one and not the horrible digital tablet one  :yess:

Laughing at the Polka detour and suffering when teams couldn't get money faster in the Pose one.
Feeling bad for Danny at the Detour , poor guy

Looking at Tim&Marie, Ashley&Ally and Leo&Jamal struggling to find the monument at the beginning  :yess:

The idea of the Roadblock taking place in random houses of a regular citizen in the department building was so cool!  :yess:

Tim&Marie wasting their Express Pass to avoid a possible U-Turn without even doing the first one  :yess:

Nicole&Travis getting the second express pass  :yess:

Amy sort of betraying Marie at the Roadblock by helping Travis  :yess: And Marie surprisngly loosing it because of it  :stare

Triple Footrace to the Pitstop!  :yess:

Tim&Danny surprisingly surviving the leg after all the predictions  :stare

Brandon&Adam leaving after winning the last leg :stare That's sad because they didn't made big mistakes they were u-turned which cost them the race... Damn you Leo&Jamal!   (:;)

This episode was amazing! My favourite so far. Tim & Danny were hilarious this episode. :lol: The whole dress incident was very funny. Tim and Jason dancing made me laugh too.

I think I might be starting to like Marie... She's an utter trainwreck, but it definitely makes this season very fun to watch.

Still waiting for Jason & Amy to get 1st... They've been very close a couple of times!

EDIT: Just remembered a couple more things.

Travis hitting the buttons on the elevator was smart, and really funny. :funny: AND WHY DID TIM & DANNY DECIDE TO USE THE U-TURN? I thought it was an utter waste. Leo & Jamal haven't even done particularly well yet!

Best leg yet this season ...  :hrt:

Tracole get the 2nd EP! I called it, folks  :)

Tim and Danny "who-wants-to-be-the-girl-I-don't-want-to-look-good-in-a-dress" is hilarious !!!  :funny:
too bad they used their u-turn cause I think it was a little too personal
and thank god all those previews are misleading!!!  :cheer:

Nicky and Kim finished the Detour first. Shouldn't have missed the U-turn mat, they could win this leg  :hoot:

Tim : "WARNING! You may be penalized for bad manners... So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BE NICE! Just for once, in your life!"  :funny:
them using the express pass paid off! so good job :)
and also good for them for not u-turning Tracole. Cause I think it was stupid to utilize both your EP and ur U-turn card on the same leg.

Ass-animals can't play their U-turn card anymore   :wohoo:

Jamy losing the first place ... AGAIN!!!!  :gaah:
Three 2nd places in a row!!!!
Please win the next leg!!!!

Brandon and Adam  :'(
Too be honest I didn't see that coming.
They shouldn't have switched detour.

Looking forward to Vienna   :)

Wow. How many good legs in a row have we had? Poland delivers!

I love the Roadblock especially! It's so random, yet it's so uniquely Poland.. and it's GREAT to see how all the teams have such nice manners when visiting the homes of others. It's a great task and it's nice to see teams not stressing out and enjoying the local hospitality.

On a second note, Tim and Danny... LOL to all of you who thought they were going to get U-TURN and eliminated.

Nicky and Kim finishing Detour in first place is.. :ascared :ascared :ascared :ascared :ascared

And them running past the U-TURN board = :groan: :groan: :groan: :groan: :groan:

Ally and Ashley getting 4 7th placing... wow, we have a Meredith and Gretchen record to beat here!

The Detour was a matter of luck and skill... there was no way I would have went to the dancing. If you have never dance before, stick to the luck task... especially it's in the middle of a square where tourists and loads of people are around. I don't know why Brandon and Adam switched Detours. That cost them really. Honestly. Even if Leo and Jamal didn't U-TURN them, Ally and Ashley would have told Leo and Jamal the clue when they see them at the Roadblock (should they meet)... so it's Brandon and Adam's leg to lose really.

Tim and Marie using Express Pass, was honestly, the BEST decision ever. They literally went from last to first, then went on to win a leg. If they had not used it, they would have been U-TURNed, and then they will still need to use it in the end, and then they won't even have a chance to catch up to win first place.

Time for Jason and Amy to win a leg soon! There are my favourite team to watch this season. And Nicole and Travis managed to get the second Express Pass! Wow. Thank goodness the editors didn't reveal it last leg! <3 So shocked to see it at the beginning of the episode!

All in all, a really good episode. Am sad to watch Brandon and Adam go, considering they loved the race and they loved the adventure. At least they won $5,000 dollars each before leaving! <3

PS: Credit be due given to Nicky and Kim. Who ran a really decent leg except for losing time at the U-TURN board.

And... Tim and Danny... really, such whiners. Like, just do the task and just because you're dressed as a female doesn't mean you need to keep complaining and tell the whole world how humiliating it is. :res:
