Otherwise, come watch with us for the best weekly viewing party in town!! :party:
 
 
We will have a LIVE streaming video posted every week we can find one. So if you are overseas or just on the West Coast and want to watch right away...please join us! You can follow along and PLEASE help update as the show unfolds! We hope everyone will join in the fun!! :wohoo:

Looks like we will be facing significant delays tonight... watch the scheduling thread for details!

CANADIANS! That means NO/NONE/ZERO comments or spoilers until the show is/has aired EST.

ONE EXCEPTION is if you can utter the magic words: WE SAW NEOBIE!! :hearts:

Previously on The Amazing Race...

8 teams continued racing in Malaysia.

At the roadblock, Jessica got tons of blisters on her feet. The Afghanimals loved the nightlife at the Sky Bar and kept rocking at the detour. The cowboys became bartenders and won the leg.

Luke lost his cool, but it was Brenchel who needed a miracle... and got it with a non-elimination leg.

8 teams remain. Who will be eliminated next.

This ancient Hindu Shrine is now the Pit Start for this Leg.
Jet & Cord depart 1st at 2:26 P.M. off to Colombo, Sri Lanka! Dave & Connor follow them, talking about their Achilles tendon injury. Leo & Jamal then depart commenting as the Twinnies' motherland. :funny:

Caroline & Jennifer want to carry the Twinny vibe with them (meaning more fighting and bickering! :lala) and JJ and Globetrotters are following.

They end up on the same flight... w/o Margie & Lke and Brenchel.

Jet & Cord will depart 1st at 2:26 PM. Fly to Colombo, Sri Lanka. After arriving, they must find Gangaramaya Temple. Once they've been blessed, they will receive their next clue.

Dave & Connor depart 2nd at 3:13 PM. Last time, this was the leg they self-eliminated on. They don't have a plan to do that this time.

Leo & Jamal depart at 3:40 PM. "The twinnies' motherland." Their taxi driver tells them to get to the airport to get their tickets.

Jet & Cord arrive at a flight agency. The quickest flight is tonight and arrives at 12:00 midnight. It's a direct flight. There's another flight going through Singapore but it arrives at the same time. Cowboys decide to get direct flight.

Caroline & Jennifer depart at 4:10 PM.

Jessica & John depart at 4:12 PM.

Flight Time & Big Easy depart at 4:40 PM. They say they haven't got any luck for 1st this race.

Dave & Connor are on the same flight as the cowboys, departing at 11 PM. All teams are on the direct flight arriving at midnight.

Margie & Luke depart at 5:12 PM. Luke says he wants to get the money for his mom. Aw.

Brenchel depart at 6:08 PM.

Margie & Luke's taxi driver doesn't know where the travel agency is. They're going to go directly to the airport.

Brenchel arrive at the travel agency. They want to get on the same direct flight... but there are no more seats. Rachel says she'll take any flight. The other option is a transfer through Singapore. It's a 30 minute connection. Rachel is trying to convince the booking guy that they can make it.

Margie & Luke are at the airport. It's 10:15 PM. Margie asks to get on standby.

Brenchel are taking a huge risk. 30 minutes. :o

Margie & Luke are trying to see if they can get a connecting ticket through Singapore. Hey, look. Neobie trying to help. :waves: Margie & Luke decide to go on standby...

Brenchel are headed to Singapore.

10:35 PM: Margie & Luke still trying to get on the direct flight at 11 PM. The flight is full... so they won't get on unless some people don't show up.

Globes tell country singers that Brenchel still here. Word spreads that Brenchel are still here and taking the connection through Singapore.

Brenchel are running through the airport... Gate closing... Final call... They're running. Brendon drops something... Rachel: "We don't have time!!!"

And we're back with Brenchel trying to make their connection... And they made it! :hearts:

Margie & Luke are checking for their standby... But they can't make it on...

Brenchel are the first ones to land in Colombo. :hearts: They get a taxi. Second flight lands shortly after. Teams getting in taxis.

Brenchel arrive at the temple... but the temple won't open until 5:45 AM. Globes tell Brenchel the only people who weren't on the direct flight were Margie & Luke and Brenchel. All teams high fiving and greeting Brenchel.

Margie & Luke finally get on a flight.

Temple opens. Teams are getting dressed in traditional clothing and getting their blessing.

Take a train to Galle and go to King Coconut Stand. All teams are proceeding to the train station, and all teams make it. Country singers say that they like being by the cowboys. Country singers say that one of their main goals this race was to be best friends with the cowboys. Flashback scene to the country girls fangirling over cowboys at the airport on leg 1, lol.

Gorgeous train ride.

Margie & Luke finally getting on their flight.

And teams are jumping off of the train and going on taxis. It's chaotic.

That's the same train route teams took on TAR 6 in Sri Lanka before the Great Tsunami and which was heavily damaged.

Great to see that the physical infrastructure is back up almost a decade later.

Jessica thinks they should switch. John thinks they should switch. They switch.

Margie & Luke have been blessed by the monk. Now they're going to go to the train station.

Roadblock. Teams will have to stitch together a shirt. When the floor manager feels like it's good, their next clue will be printed on the shirt.
Speedbump is here.

There's an ongoing demonstration. Connor and Big Easy are doing the roadblock. Jennifer is doing it? Caroline doing it? Still can't tell. :funny:

Big Easy: "I decided to do the roadblock... Worst decision ever." lol.

Jessica says that John is not a great dancer. Oh man. Not very good at all. :lol:

Leo & Jamal arrive at the roadblock. Leo is doing it. Jet is doing it. Leo says he's seen his mom doing this a bunch of times. Jet has never sewn before. "It's worse than a puzzle because all the puzzle pieces are... moving."

Jessica & John finish the detour in 7th. Margie & Luke are on the 2:25 train to Galle. Margie says she's proud of Luke for staying calm.

Jennifer is doing the roadblock. Got it. :lol: Jennifer and Connor are working together. Connor says it was great to work with Jen on the roadblock.

Brenchel still working on the speedbump.

An "agh" montage with Big Easy, Jet and Leo. Brenchel finish the speedbump. Brendon is doing the roadblock. Leo says he'll give 1000 rupies to get someone to do it for him LOL.

Connor is getting his shirt checked... It is not good. It's close, but there's a little hole I guess?

Jennifer gets her shirt checked, but there's a seam missing. John & Jessica arrive and Jessica is doing it. Jessica is very confused. She asks if you have to press the pedal and if there are needles lol.

Margie & Luke arrive at the pit stop and it's super dark. They're the last team to arrive and they've been eliminated. Aw. Luke says it's cool that they got to do the race for a 3rd time. Luke thanks his mom. Awww.

Pit stop:
1st - Dave & Connor
2nd - Caroline & Jennifer
3rd - Jet & Cord
4th - Leo & Jamal
5th - Jessica & John
6th - Flight Time & Big Easy
7th - Brendon & Rachel
8th - Margie & Luke (ELIMINATED)

Luke stayed really calm this episode and went out in a classy style. I loved them this season  :hrt:

Next week on The Amazing Race...

As the competition picks up speed, Rachel gets in a jam. Not really sure what's happening, but it's chaos. Lots of rickshaws.

LEG 5 (Malaysia --> Sri Lanka) EPISODE ANALYSIS:
This episode has been an interesting a leg! Our long, lost friend named flight drama returned to the TAR screen to try and show what all-stars really is about. Too bad it wasn't as abrupt like Charla & Mirna getting on a last minute flight to Honolulu in ther final Leg, but it's good enough in comparison to the obviously lazy editors this season (seriously, they even got Joey & Meghan's flashback season wrong in the previous episode). An exclusive, greatly appreciated effort of Neobie trying to save Margie & Luke from falling too far behind the pack deserves a round of applause. However, even though the flight drama proved to be pretty refreshing, the rest of the Leg took a nosedive. Especially not showing which Detour Margie & Luke finished or showing who performed the Roadblock, most likely Margie though. Like I said earlier, lazy editors.

DETOUR: (Fish On Stilts or Spin On Stilts)
This Leg's Detour felt rather undeveloped for me. In both choices, there were major flaws that made me make some weird grimaces at the TV. In the traditional Sri Lankan dance, I felt like teams just had to spin 360` and do something similar to TAR17's plate spinning to get a marginal pass. I honestly didn't enjoy seeing this generic type of task. The stilt fishing had a great amount of potential, but seriously? Two fish whether the size of a krill? Instead of making the goal quantity, how about making the challenge to gather as MANY fish to reach 3-5 lbs? Like what Jet said, "I wish we had time to weigh it." :res:
DETOUR SCORE: 4/10

ROADBLOCK:
Sewing drove teams to insanity... not really. Only Flight Time had the guts to show off AKA "practice" his basketball spinning skills while in a factory. :lol: I felt this task was decent, but it was just boring to see Roadblock performers helping each other. Only Leo made the sewing actually seem more exciting. The sewing took a while, but people who have a good eye for detail stitched through it.
ROADBLOCK SCORE: 7/10

OTHER SCORES
LEG DIFFICULTY: 8/10
TRAVEL DRAMA: 8/10
SEWING HUMOR: 2/10
OVERALL SCORE: 6/10

I liked the flight drama a lot this leg, and it was very fun to see Brendon and Rachel taking a risk!

With respect to the leg itself, I liked both the Detour and the Roadblock itself and they kind of showed some drama, but I wish there would have been a difficulty spike to them though to make it All Stars worthy.

I also felt like that having Margie and Luke way behind hurt the episode a lot and made it very anticlimactic. If teams were battling for last at the Roadblock, I think it would be wayyyy more interesting.

Overall an okay leg for me. I felt like it had potential, if difficulty was spiked, but Margie and Luke really dropped the drama out of it.

I think if both the detour are more difficult factor, Maggie and Luke might have a chance to catch up. But they might way behind and the edit just made us think that they are not too far behind (they went to the RB when Brenchel and Globetrotters still do the RB).

when they didn't show Margie and Luke performing the Detour, you kinda figured they're the ones who got the boot ...
Luke was mature this time I am surprised...
Good job on Brenchel for making a tight connection...
but from what it looks like the plane was probably delayed a bit...
how come you were still able to board when the gate was already closing?

Sri Lanka was so beautiful.
I wish the Roadblock was also outdoorsy...

And is it just me but how well did Caroline & Jen did so far... I am kinda bumped that they were still in.

2nd place is the best result they have made (the best placement they got in season 22 was 3rd)
when they left the factory in 2nd , i was praying that they went on to win the leg
Being a fan of the country girls , i was amazed by their performance in the latest episodes

It was a pretty fun episode. The fishing Detour was definitely boring, but the Plates Detour actually looked cool and while it seemed like a basic dancing task, it just was pretty fun to watch. The recycled Roadblock was eh.

But this episode definitely delivered in Airport Drama and task drama, so I still enjoyed it.

Next week looks really fun though. :)

The episode is good.
Flight drama + No more assigned flights =  :hrt:
Neobie's on TV!
The detour is pretty okay to me. It was balanced... I guess. The spinning detour looks cool. I'm not a fan of fishies or fishing, but i really think that the detour is somewhat balanced.
The rb location was... familiar to me. It was the same location used in TARA4! :o Then I checked Wikipedia to make sure: I wasn't wrong.
I'm not a fan of CaroJen but I hoped that they would've won the leg. It was my first time (and definitely everybody else's) seeing them on a footrace for 1st, but I think Dave & Connor deserved this leg. CaroJen should've won the previous leg, too bad there were assigned flights.
Margie & Luke: :torche At least they left the race with a good reputation, by keeping calm this time around. :)
I don't know what flaws I can point out this leg. So far, it's one of the best legs.
No W-turn on preview? :(
