Nothing will save this episode unless Nadiya and Natalie are the pit-stop greeters.

Which we know they aren't. I'm gonna meet Neobie to view this episode together and I think he might want to prepare a packet of tissue for me when my favourite team this season is goneeeeeee.

PLUS. We only see Margie and Luke collecting the first clue. Which might as well be a clue that directs them straight to the pit-stop since they are so far behind.

I just gotta say Brendon and Rachel choosing to do the Singapore Airlines connection is probably one of the smartest decision they will make on this race. Singapore Airlines is known to make it even possible for people to make connections which are as short as only 15 minutes (I've heard even 5) and if they receive news that the flight that some of their passengers are on has already arrived, they will wait for them no matter what and ensure they make their connecting flight.

Over here, our airport counter shows gate closing almost as early as 30 minutes before flight departure and therefore, 'Gate Closing' is not really 'Gate Closing' but just to hush people to hurry up and go to the boarding gate. Otherwise, how else do you get an efficient system and the title of the best airport in the world? :funny:

I would rather they focus on Margie and Luke's flight drama to be honest. And really, Brendon and Rachel are easily the stars of this season already. <333333333

New preview from CBS

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/hiZf8AIgpsI" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/hiZf8AIgpsI</a>

In exotic Sri Lanka teams will spin it, fish it, sew it, and one team may lose it!
Don't miss the closest leg yet. The Amazing Race airs Sunday at 8/7c. Only CBS


Detour: Fishing or Spinning Plate?
RB: Sewing a shirt? Exactly the same task (and location?) as  TARA 4 and TARAus 1 RB? :lol: :res:

and let's see how 'close' this leg will be :lol:
By close, I think they mean close connections, alluding to Brenchel, as obviously it's not close.
The Roadblock appears to be identical to the ones in TARA and TARAus. I hope that they'll make it harder than the other RBs, maybe they could have to sew shirts, pants, etc?
Colombo is by the sea, so I don't think that they'll have to travel by train to the Detour.
I can't believe that it's yet ANOTHER leg in which Cowboys and Dave & Connor and first and second.

Next week's tasks look  :groan:

Fishing again? :res:

Sewing like TARA again? :res:

Oh my god, the spinning plates should at least be entertaining, or else...

I'll only look forward to Brenchel's Speed Bump and nothing else. What a leg design indeed :res:

Shouldn't be too hard to make the connection.

MI 341 arrived at Gate E1 (according to the preview) ten minutes early, at 10.25pm. SQ 468 left Gate F54 at 10.59pm, a little ahead of schedule. It's about a 570m/620yd run across the central bit of the same terminal.

And just like that, they leapfrog to the front of the pack with a lead of one-and-a-half hours! Watch the editors make a big deal out of that.

But then they get bunched along with everyone else.

In TAR Asia 4, leg 4 all the teams had to get the train from Colombo to Galle and it was there that Richard and Richard won the FF by shaving their heads. How funny would it be if there was another FF like this and Brenchel would go for it?  :funny:

Agree with Lutpayy that they're reusing Trendy Connection... Check out the yellow beams and the angle of the roof.

What an all-star season, even the locations are three-peats! -_-

Does Sri Lanka I/II look like they extended at the last minute a leg that was supposed to fit in just one episode, the same way Guangzhou I/II looked like to me?

Don't think so...this one feels planned to me.

Even that we know that TARA and TARAus had visited those places, but I think this will be the first time TAR:US visit those places and this will be the first time it'll be showed in US television. So, it'll be the first time viewers who never watch TARA and TARAus before see those location, tasks, etc. :)

That is very true!
The Amazing Race Australia season 2 also showcased Istanbul, in a better way then the Us. versions (just my opion).

I just hope that they feature Independence Commemoration Hall, in this leg. It was not in season 6.
Love The Amazing Race, The Apprentice and Survivor.

i can't believe there is not double u-turn in this episode. it wouldn't happen in leg 6 also since it is a NEL ( we saw a speed-bump in leg 7, italy)
