Why does Phil not say anything about Speedbump?

and the bunnies are saved again by another non-elimination, too bad this time they will have to tackle a speed bump

Loved this episode, doing my Leg 7 analysis! :luvya:
Weird how Phil never mentioned anything about a Spred Bump. Could there be another Nick & Vicki mishap?

No they had post leg interviews and they turned up then.

I know. -_- But sometimes, teams are just barely two or three minutes apart but they shoo them off anyway. Part of me wants to think they purposely kept Tim and Marie there.

Ok, I think we saw manufactured drama last leg. Tim and Marie are 5 minutes ahead of Jamy at the mat and they kept them there to be confronted by Jamy? :res:

No they had post leg interviews and they turned up then.

Also Polaroid what is Australia Air? :S

Next week on The Amazing Race...

Tensions rise with a DOUBLE U-TURN. Jason & Amy hope that "they" didn't U-Turn them. Marie sounds mad.

Nicole jumps for a flag while in a raft. Nicky & Kim get bogged down (hey, this reminds me of TAR Australia!).

I think the Speedbump is now a given and they don't need to repeat it over and over (like the whole "A Detour is a choice between two tasks")

If the Speed Bump is still there, and a double U-turn. Those Bunnies are in trouble. Why not U-turn them too!

Phil would have spent literally two minutes explaining it if there were a new NEL penalty, like how serious they were when they introduced the Speed Bump :lol: then it became "This is a non-elimination leg oh there's a Speed Bump next leg yay okay" now they didn't even bother mentioning the Speed Bump :lol:

I didn't get to watch this episode sadly but judging from the commentary it seemed kind of boring... correct me or not?

It was indeed quite boring, one side of the Detour was lame (I didn't even get why they had to sew nets), but the Roadblock was cool.

But what a boring pit-stop. -_- They didn't even bother to make them travel somewhere else.

I didn't think it was boring, I enjoyed watching it actually.

The only letdown for me was the Pit Stop, didn't like it. :(

Wow this was a really detail oriented episode  :yess:  but at the same time it was lacking something but I don't know what it was... I really thought Nicky&Kim could've pulled ahead of everyone at the detour but I guess they trying to keep hiding the toher dates distract them for actually pay attention to what they had in front of them...

Good Job Travis for getting the roadblock in the first try!  :yess:  Poor Nicole getting worried about their placement in the detour...

Was this the first time in a leg that Ashley&Ally didn't get help from Leo&Jamal or another team? I was really hoping for Kim finishing before Ally at the roadblock... too bad it didn't happened and now the next leg looks like its gonna be a really hard one for Nicky&Kim specially... I wonder what happened at the mat that Phil forgot about the speed bump :S

I think the pitstop conceptually was great I mean how many times the race has finished a leg in a real winner's podium of a "real race" but because it was on the same building it was kind of boring because we didn't see the teams struggling to find it :/

I don't like the Sewing Detour. It's kinda boring but maybe because too much drama is in Sorting Detour  :funny:
I don't like the Pit Stop.

And I don't like the Double U-turn next leg.
- They're still in the same country, I hope somehow everyone will be the same place again. If not, the last team (Bunnies) is so screwed.
- Moreover, the last team (Bunnies) might got Speedbump and because of that they might got U-turned too.

It's all about Derby Moms last season.

Leg 7 (Austria --> United Arab Emirates) Analysis
Abu Dhabi really brought out the best and worst of teams and it totaled to an interesting and challenging Leg. Having to go inside the Sheikh Zayed Mosque being was a great idea on the route designers' behalf. How people have to be gracious and polite and women required to dress in black covers when entering the holy site brought out some really unique cultural education. The yacht ferry wasn't exactly the best type of transportation, but I guess teams could stay well-groomed and clean on the way. :res: *pretending not to be jealous* The Pit Stop played a pun on race car terms, but I wish teams had to struggle to arrive on it like in the past. I'm pretty sure everyone is getting the sense of the annoying word, "budget", now.

DETOUR: Dates or Traps
I like how both Detour choices this time compensate for mistakes unlike the previous one in Austria. While the dates are on the intermediate level to arrange, a good eye is needed to spot the correct color of fruit to display. The fishing trap "weaving" is hands down time-consuming, but teams with dexterity could finish rather quickly. Just be careful for any inaccuracies. However, I feel these tasks were kind of boring even for the teams at that time, especially sewing a fishing net. Travis and Nicole didn't really seem too thrilled to do that task.
DETOUR SCORE: 8/10

ROADBLOCK: Rappel and Formula One Cars
The Roadblock this time was really awesome and I would have loved to ride in one of those race cars. Having to spot and memorize a full name and exact lap time is hard, but having only about one and a half second to remember what the board showed, yikes!
ROADBLOCK SCORE: 9/10

OTHER RANDOM SCORES:
TEAM DRAMA SCORE: 8/10
SOUNDTRACK USE SCORE: 7/10 (Surprisingly)
MARIE-BEING-A-BIG-BIT¢H SCORE: 11/10
PIT STOP SCORE: 4/10
MOSQUE-CALMING-POWER SCORE: 10/10
