I would have liked to see the RCMP inspection a little tougher, like in S1.  :funny:

This is technically the first two-province leg since season 1 in the north. The history museum is on the Quebec side of the river in Gatineau.
Technically, that leg in S1 wasn't a two-province leg, but a two-territory leg

WHAT is the point of a Double U-Turn if you are going to have a NEL??   :gaah:
...

I think it's better than having the U-Turn and the Speedbump on the same leg
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Neither are as bad as having the Speedbump and Face Off on the same Leg though!  :groan:  -  The Face Off is just BLAAAAAH ... full stop!  :haha

Just re-watched the episode, and it's a lot better on second viewing.  The placements constantly changed, and every team was in 1st at least once.

The RB wasn't that exciting, and it didn't really affect the placements, but the Tulips changed up the placements as well, so overall I enjoyed it.

Wasn't keen on the U-Turn alliance, but I'm looking forward to the drama next Leg.

Think I'm starting to like Kenneth & Ryan now too. Never thought I'd be saying that!  :lol:

Probably one of the weaker Legs so far, but by no means a bad one.  Hopefully this Season continues to hold up, just hoping Sam & Paul or Adam & Andrea are eliminated next.

Really??  :o  :lol:  I wouldn't say I dislike them, I just like everyone else more I guess.  But I think Sam & Paul can come across very cocky at times.  There was a bit in this Leg where Bert failed the exam and they erupted in laughter, and I didn't really think there was any need for it.  They're just rubbing me up the wrong way I guess.  :lol:  AND I really wanna see them fall below 4th to get a taste of what it's like to be at the bottom.

Adam & Andrea are showing the most final 3 potential. They've only had one leg below 3rd, the 7th in McMurray.

We're finally starting to see the conflict between these teams show and alliance talk. U-Turns tend to bring that out.

Kenneth & Ryan seemed grumpier than usual, the repeated complaints about the girls. Jet lag probably, this was a massive distance to fly.

Wonder who ole Mustard man was reading to find the teams? :funny:

Apparently the U-Turn board was a big spoiler, and it made the rounds in Ottawa when it was being filmed. Johnny probably knew that his brother was racing, and took a chance at trying to spot his brother near the U-Turn, and he did (or rather, Ryan spotted him). This is information from a reddit comment from a person claiming to be a family friend of Give'r

I'm surprised more family members and friends didn't "accidentally" show up.

Thank CTV's Ottawa station for that :lol:

They actually put out a tweet inviting people to come down to the market and see the U-Turn board the day before the racers. Must be like the first time CTV themselves spoiled a filming location.

Per the Official Facebook page, there might have been an edited out task of underwater hockey (or it might be next leg). Though it says digital exclusive. Weird.

It says it was Gatineau on the show site. I found it very odd too, especially since those interactive 360 videos are few and far between.

It is Gatineau Quebec. That was not visited this leg, right?  ???

Gatineau is where the Cdn Museum of History (the Pitstop) is.
I still think it's odd. If they wanted to do a 360 for the 150 (LOL) why not do the Mountie Musical ride??? That would have been fabulous.

After the detour teams are shown reading their clue instructing them to the museum. So where does this fit in?

We never actually saw the teams read the clue after the U-Turn, they just cut to the museum on the first go and cut them off the rest of the time. Andrea & Ebonie were shown on a Quebec highway between the U-Turn board and the museum, which wouldn't make sense if they went straight to the museum (but would if they got lost, an unlikely scenario considering they got to the museum not too long after Give'r), since the museum is directly across from the river that divides Ottawa & Gatineau, but would make sense if the pool was between those tasks.

My guess is that the the pool task was between the U-Turn and Museum.

If this aquatic RI were indeed part of the sixth leg, then the task count would amount to three (A)RIs, a Roadblock, and a Detour.

Per Occam's Razor, that's far too many challenges to fit feasibly into a single episode, so it'll probably appear as the first task of Leg 7.

No, Karen reads it at the U-Turn board. "Drive yourself to the Museum of Canadian History."
I suspect this was a task they considered, but decided against. This seems like a task that would have made a good Face Off. Perhaps they changed their minds and decided to go with the Bowling Face Off in Leg 7. I also suspect these VR 360 videos were filmed well in advance of principle filming, so if there was a last-minute decision to switch out the tasks, this underwater hockey footage became irrelevant.
The thing is, these VR 360 extras have been few and far between. HOWEVER, production received a BellMedia FUND grant which covered interactive digital applications. They are obligated to post it.
