SO PLEASE ** NO  OUTCOMES ** to be posted before the show is done airing East Coast time! 
 
Anyone breaking the rule is at BIG risk.  :browsie:
 
And NO future spoilers either! And NO spoilers ever in the Contestant threads either.
 
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:
 
LIVE STREAMING VIDEO links will be  HERE and will normally be put up about 20 minutes before show time.
 
Scheduling and delays will be posted HERE.
 
 
And you can entertain yourself with the weekly episode threads as well while you wait! **Spoilers**
 
 
 
Have FUN everyone and :tu for joining us!!

Previously on The Amazing Race...

8 teams raced from Kuala Lumpur to Colombo, Sri Lanka. At the airport, Brenchel and Margie & Luke took a risk. Brenchel's risk paid off, while Margie and Luke's didn't. In Colombo, Jessica & John couldn't get a bite at the detour while Brenchel lost their balance. At the roadblock. Connor sewed up 1st place.

Meanwhile, Margie & Luke never recovered and were eliminated from the race.

7 teams remain. Who will be eliminated next?

Recap of Leg 5... idiotically shortened intro... :res:
[Commercial]

Sri Lanka is an island nation in the coast of the Indian Ocean, we're in Colombo. Dave & Connor leave at 2:59 A.M. to the Dutch Museum and Caroline & Jennifer, Cowboys, and A$$ghanimals follow, without showing them ripping open their first clues. :tantrum

Dave & Connor won the last leg of the race and will depart 1st at 2:59 AM. Route info: Proceed to the Dutch Museum. Search the hall of headstones for your next clue. Dave thinks Connor is the most capable person this race.

Caroline & Jennifer depart 2nd at 3:27 AM. Not shown leaving the start mat.

Jet & Cord depart 3rd at 3:35 AM. Not shown leaving the start mat too. They say that they're competitive.

Leo & Jamal depart at 3:50 AM. They say they have to beat the Cowboys and Dave & Connor.

Dave & Connor reach the museum and find out it doesn't open until 8:30 AM. All teams are at the museum. Brenchel don't think that they've reached their potential.

For non-religious viewers of The Amazing Race, they need to know the teams before the episode actually begins. TAR11 showed the all-star teams in the into every episode.

Mad running once the museum opens. Make your way by train to the city of Alawwa, and go to Ceypetco Fuel Station.

Teams are running to the train station. The train departs at 8:55 AM so everyone's going to be on the same train, lol. Its a 1.5 hour train ride to Alawwa. The scenery is beautiful.

Teams start jumping off the train to the fuel station. Brenchel are the 1st to get the clue. Roadblock: Who wants to fill 'er up?
Roadblock: Teams will have to enter the gas station and pick a coloured badge. They must find 4 tuk-tuks with the same colour marker. Then they will need to lead them to the gas station to fill them up. Once they have filled up the 4 tuk-tuks, they will receive their next clue.

Rachel picks green. All other teams are arriving.

Dave worked at a gas station when he was 16. Teams pick the colours. It's chaotic.

Gosh, the same, annoying Rachel R. has returned. :'(

Also, to make things very difficult, why didn't teams have to find a tuk-tuk with a specific LICENSE PLATE?

Rachel has green so she's getting green cars to come... However, she doesn't realize that there are coloured markers. Rachel fills up a red marker car. Rachel is at the gas pump and she's yelling.

Jamal: 1/4

Dave is getting his tuk-tuks to line up.

Rachel is still filling up gas in the wrong tuk-tuks...

Jamal sprayed gasoline everywhere, lol. He has 2/4.

THIS IS CHAOS. People are yelling and standing in front of tuk-tuks and it's crazy. Rachel yells green but Big Easy takes the gas pump. Dave is yelling for his tuk-tuks to come. Dave is standing in front of tuk-tuks and blocking other teams. :funny:

This is so hard to follow. :funny:

Cord is being very calm and getting his tuk-tuks to go around everyone.

Big Easy: 2/4
Caroline: 1/4

Dave says he's next but John says he has his tuk-tuk right there. They argue for a bit but John gets it. Dave says that it's his turn after.

Cord: 2/4

Rachel thinks that she has finished the roadblock. She said she filled up 4 green cars... but they're green cars and not green markers... Oh dear.

Comercial.

And we're back. Rachel is freaking out. She's still trying to get green cars to come. She's yelling and pushing tuk-tuks away.

John: 2/4
Big Easy: 3/4

Rachel is still yelling for green. John tells Rachel that she's actually filling up a red tuk-tuk. Wow. Rachel finally figures out what she did wrong.

John: 3/4

This is crazy. Tuk-tuks flying everywhere, people almost getting run over lol.

Jamal: 3/4

Big Easy pushes Dave's tuk-tuk away. He is actually moving it out of the way omg.

Big Easy: 4/4. Globes out of the roadblock in 1st. Travel by train to Rambukkana and take a tuk-tuk to the Millenium Elephant Foundation. Once there, they must search the river for their next clue.

Jamal: 4/4. Afghanimals out in 2nd.
John: 4/4. JJ out in 3rd.

There are still 12 minutes before the train leaves.

Cord: 4/4. Cowboys out in 4th.
Dave: 4/4.
Caroline: 4/4.

The train station is close so Brenchel can still make it on.

Rachel: 2/4

Everyone else is going to make the train...

Rachel: 4/4... They're sprinting for the train... The train is there... They have to get tickets... All the other teams are on... BUT BRENCHEL MAKE IT ON. All the teams are on the same train. How anticlimactic. :stare

Tuk-tuk drivers waving. Teams jumping off the train and jumping over fences lol. This is crazy. Tuk-tuks all racing to the elephant place. Tuk-tuks are passing each other and getting passed.

Elephants! :hearts: Teams are all running to get their clue by the river bed. What the heck. It's literally right at the bottom of this river bank surrounded by tall grass.

Detour
Trunk: After choosing a piece of marked timber, they must attach a specialized chain that elephants use to carry logs. Once they have transported a total of 6 logs (3 by the team and 3 by elephant), they will get their next clue.
Chains: Load a wheelbarrow with elephant dung. Combine it with water and scraps of paper. Make the paper with paper making screens. Once they have made 5 sheets of this paper and lay it out to try, they will get their clue.

Logs: Cowboys, Afghanimals, Jessica & John and Dave & Connor.

Cowboys used to this kind of manual labour.

Paper: Globes, Brenchel and Country.

Flight Time just started putting his hand in the poo to get it in the wheelbarrow lol. Country singers say that apparently it didn't smell. Rachel says she has elephant dung on her face. Teams are stirring the dung around with paper.

Jet & Cord have the 1st log properly chained for the elephant. Cord is going to carry one. Afghanimals have their 1st log carried by the elephant. Dave & Connor's chain isn't approved because there's too much slack. John & Jessica's isn't approved either.

Globes and Brenchel are at the paper making station. They're watching a demo.
