I wonder how the teams from the second flight caught up so soon?

The second flight landed 1 hour and 20 minutes after the first teams. But Margie & Luke still manages to reach the top of the tower before the cowboys have left. I would guess that at this time they are about 30-40 minutes behind. So they managed to gain about 40-50 minutes on the first team, which wasn't shown doing any mistakes.

Or can this be explained by just faster immigration and better luck with metros?

It most likely had to do with metros and the dress shops. The Canton Tower task was also pretty long, I've been there, and it takes about 20 minutes to go around ONCE.

My guess is the dress shops. Was it Neobie who said this was diabolical because the streets were not on maps, and VERY difficult to find??

That combined with some Ferns giving out deliberate misinformation would explain a lot. (Which makes me SICK. If you can't help, at least don't hinder!!)

They were only an hour ahead, and considering all the teams from the second flight took METRO (the faster option), whereas only Jet and Cord took the metro from the first flight, that has got to be the first step to downfall for the twins.

Followed by the bridal shops which were NOT listed on the maps (some of them, till today) -> especially those hidden in the back alley (the one which Twinnies and Leo and Jamal missed!)

Considering Jet and Cord went into ONE wrong cubicle (20 mins) before getting into the right one and were nearly done (maybe 15 mins) before many of the other teams arrived and started on the task... the Cowboys should be about 35 - 45 mins before the other teams? Don't forget that the other teams were probably faster (shedding about 15 mins) because those ferns who helped the cowboys already knows where the shops are and bring the teams directly there.

So yea.. I guess the main reasons why the teams from the second flight could catch up and complete the bridal shop task so quickly was because of so many factors listed above. Plus those annoying fans who misled the twinnies and leo and jamal (?) to different wrong locations.

Which is a shame, really. It was really a "fans help the teams" task, which isn't fair, because it was the teams themselves who are brought back, not the fans. (ex: wanting Joey and Meghan back, but not their fans). I'm not sure if the producers foresaw this or not, but it was the destruction of the Twinnies.

A not-so-depressing point I wanna mention, is that this episode's title should be "Super Amazing Race Starstruck" by Rachel. Ten thousand times better than the cowboys quote. :res: :funny:

Connor and Cord embracing their flaming leotards was one of the biggest highlights for me

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

Ok, so if the only thing that Mark and Mallory had in common was both being from Kentucky, can you imagine if one of the Goths had filled in instead?

They would have been a good team too, but they would quickly overshadow Mark.

They wanted to bring back either of Kisha & Jen to race with Mark, but were turned down  :funny:

Twinnies  :'( :'(  So sad. After watch the episode, i must agree that Twinnies eliminated because their own fault. They were too much arguing each other and not pay attention, especially at the Canton tower.
I don't really like the premiere episode. too short and too rush. They don't even show why the teams eliminated in their previous season.
The best part was when MALLORY showed up from the tribune  :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

Huh. I watched my first season is 17. Then rewatch 16 from website. It sucks. Only Carol & Brandy, all teams below F6 execpt Joe & Heidi and Jet & Cord seem not annoying. But 16 is too annoying. Sorry if this post hurts one of your feelings.  :funny:  :groan:  :whoop:

I think this is the season where I'll watch the first 4 episodes and last 4 episodes... and don't care about what happens in the middle. :funny:

Really? I am excited for the middle of the season the most! (Mainly because I don't know where they're going in Legs 8 and 9 and I am excited for Rome)

I remember! :umn: They fell to last place because of that. Then they got 3rd place at the end of the leg. That is why I liked the cowboys.
