How does this picture approve anything?

The new photo and information put the 4 teams in the front (Skiers, Lifeguards, Twins, Debaters) and 3 teams (Jody, Violinist, and mystery team) in the rear.  So Jody did slow the Violinist down due to being behind the pack.... :groan:

Previous photo shows the Skiers, Lifeguards, Debaters, & Twins together at that Clue table &
at the U-turn. I had doubt all day but this last photo & FB post gives answers.
Always have an attitude of gratitude. :)

So as it relates to the mystery team, I'm gonna guess it's the Indy 500 racers or the eaters.

Yes, no sightings of either teams in Prague have surfaced.

so if there were only 3 clues left on the cluetable close to the uturn does that mean teams would know their current place when they were there by how many clues were left?

If so that is probably why Jody used it.. If they realized they were only ahead of 1 or 2 teams and knew the violinist were one of the ones behind them, they needed to do it to buy more time and make sure they didn't get last.

Teams make the U-Turn decision being taking and reading their clue :tup:

Considering the clue-table though... maybe it's behind the board?

I also do not know if this has been mentioned but:

Is this Jody's courtesy of photo below or is it someone else?

Cropped from the big picture:


Cropped from the U-Turn picture:



Most of the time the first Courtesy of Photo that exists at the U-Turn is the teams arranged in Alphabetical order. If it's Jessica & Cody then it's "Cody & Jessica", and thus, we might be able to figure that "CEDRIC & Shawn" are now likely eliminated.

How do we know it isnít arranged as Shawn and Cedric?

Conor and Alex could also be in trouble, if they arrange it Alex and Conor

But that is if they truly do it alphabetically all the time

They don't arrange the team members' names alphabetically.  They arrange them based on what they think would roll off the tongue better, or sound better (at least most of the time).  For example, "Cody & Jessica" sounds phonetically better than "Jessica & Cody."  Also rolls off the tongue a lot more easily.  With Trevor & Chris, I think their names also sound better that way, and maybe the producers thought and decided that, too.

I think how the teams are arranged at the starting line reflects their team names more

From Phil’s perspective, it would fit with the three names we see on the pictures

Henry and Evan
Cody and Jessica
Trevor and Chris

Contrstents arranged the same in photo and at Starting Line

If based off that, and if the alphabetical photos are correct (team who’s first member’s name comes first alphabetically is at the top) I’d be more nervous for Indy (standing as Alex and Conor at the Starting Line)

I had to look it up to verify it. They did change the name officially to Czechia although Czech Republic has registered in the minds of the people.

I remember I saw a list was leaked somewhere here that show how the teammate was arranged but I can't find it anymore.


Edit: Can't find the list anymore, but I remember the teammate was arranged exactly like the list below:

1-  Alex Rossi/Conor Daly (M/M) Indy 500 Winners (Blue)
2-  Lucas Bocanegra/Brittany Austin (M/F) LifeGuard Couple (Lime Green)
3-  April Gould/Sarah Williams (F/F) (Bright Blue)
4-  Shawn Marion/Cedric Ceballos(M/M) NBA Stars (??Purple??)
5-  Cody Nickson/Jessica Graf(M/F) Big Brother Couple (Khaki Green)
6-  Trevor Wadleigh/Christopher Marchant (M/M) Violinists with WellStrung (Black)
7-  Henry Zhang/Evan Lynyak(M/F) Yale National Debate Champs-Couple (??)
8- Jen Hudak/Kristi Leskinen  (F/F) National Ski Champs (Pink)
9-  Eric/Daniel Guiffreda (M/M) Twin Firefighter EMT's (??)
10- Kayla Fitzgerald and Dessie Mitcheson (F/F) "Ring Girls" (Red)
11- Joey Chestnut/Tim Janus (M/M)  National Eating Champs (Kelly Green)

Our sighted F7 teams in alphabetical order might be:

Alex & Conor (If they're the mystery team)
Cody & Jessica
Eric & Daniel
Henry & Evan
Jen & Kristi
Joey & Tim (If they're the mystery team)
Lucas & Brittany
Trevor & Chris

I wonder who the mystery team is. I think it could only be either the Indy 500 Racers or the Competitive Eaters. Shawn Marion was seen in Rome without a backpack, without Cedric Ceballos nor a camera crew, I'd assume they're eliminated already.

Interestingly enough, the person who posted the pic with all 7 clues (WhitmoorCCSuper), posted pictures of JODY and the Violinists. (Posted at the same time) Yet now we are thinking they were behind at least 4 other teams.

Sorry if this is wrong place to post.  I was thinking the same thing.  If you look at the times and the picture with Jody where there is a clock it looks like they may have been minutes apart.  Something still seems off to me.  The picture with the skiers in the background near the uturn by themselves is really throwing me off, where did the other 3 teams go??

I find it very hard to believe all those teams that wer behind jody and the violienists got in front of them. without help atleast.

maybe it is a new twist and another team won it and put them in the bottom or something.

Exactly. The two groups could have chosen different detours and one group finished quicker than the others. Or couldn't find the cluebox. Or got lost. Or bad cab. Anything can trip up teams.
