No matter how much I like Jason&Amy or Travis&Nicole, pics 35 to 37 just makes me angry, because it's such a big thing to build and they are wasting so much time...

Given Japan's fascination with robots, they kinda look like one, particularly the one on the left which is standing up.  Not finding anything resembling them online yet.   :groan:

 :funny:  yet another kind of Human Bowling in Japan on YouTube
:bunny

thanks for remembering... did some digging and may have nailed down the TV network for the Human Bowling [人間ボウリング] show.  Looks like it's broadcast by Nippon Television Network Corporation [日本テレビ放送網株式会社]

Headquarters / Head Office: 1-6-1 Higashi Shimbashi, Minato-ku, Tokyo 105-7444, Japan 

Kojimachi Studio (the studios): Nibancho, Chiyoda, Tokyo

Another Japanese game show?  :groan: I wonder if Arnold Chun will be getting some more work.
The last two caps are in the robot-building place--Shinjuku Central Park. In fact, you can see green vests on the ground in earlier caps.

The Robot RoadBlock reminds me about this Piperoid

But I can not find anything big as in the race.

The Roadblock looks to be the robot building thing as you can only see Marie, Amy, Nicole and Leo doing it with their partners off to the side.

Detour - Fish Bowl or Human Bowl?

 :funny:  appears that fish tanks and phones are not uncommon in Tokyo.  It's not our phone, but it's still funny looking.

Seems like Amy will help Nicole *again* *sigh*

Amy's probably helping Nicole because the two teams don't like Leo & Jamal and Amy wants to ensure that Travis & Nicole beat Leo & Jamal since the cousins have a Speedbump.  As for why Jason & Amy and Travis & Nicole dislike Leo & Jamal, the cousins have a habit of lying to other teams when there's no real need to.  That would annoy me if I had to deal with that a lot of the time!

The one who did the Fish tank in the left photo is Amy. I'm not sure the one in the right is Amy or not although the color of bikini seems to be similar.

LOL.........an Intersection............when was the last time they had one.......like 5-6 years ago. They didn't really work then and wont work now either.

Amy is helping Nicole because she knows she can beat her in the finale. Leo/Jamal would be a harder team to beat in the finale.

Nicole will get absolutely no help in her RB in the finale.

Watching the footrace to the mat last night between Tracole and Timarie made this very clear.  Nicole is noooo speedster.

THIS!

or.. is it possible that Nicole is the one who helps? it would be a nice payback for Amy..

We don't really know who helps whom. Because based on the preview, when Amy feels nervous (looking to Leo or something), Nicole says that "focus on our task" or something similar. I feel that Nicole is calmer in this situation.

Maybe it's a case of mutual aid.  It looks like that task would be easier with two people, so it's possible that they worked with each other to build one and then the other.

Yeah, maybe they just worked with each other.  They do seem to have an alliance after all.

YAY Tokyo!!! I've always wanted to go to Tokyo ...
The tasks look interesting...
Well why wouldn't they it's in Japan ....

I was really hoping ass-animals get their asses kicked off in this leg...
 :waves:
Having a Speedbump in final 4 was always tough to survive ...

But honestly Travis and Nicole's elimination will be really good for anyone's chance
If there's a memory challenge in the final leg, Travis and Nicole will have huge advantages over any other teams...

I thought the person in the tank on the right was Jason (they look as though they aren't wearing a bikini top as their shoulders are bare)

I was thinking along similar lines -- if clip 53 was in Alaska, then that means the Doctors made it to the Final 3.  Also, Jamy was seen in a speedboat, presumably in the same location, and we already had reason to believe that they made the Final 3.  So if the indications that the Exes also made it to the Final 3 are correct, then we might as well say good-bye to the Afghanimals.  Not that I really mind, though Bookworm might.   ;)
