HONG KONG NEXT SIGHTING
I have received information that Oswald and Danny and Dustin and Kandice have been spotted in Hong Kong. There was no mention of any other teams.

*Dustin and Kandice were spotted in Siu Sai Wan, Hong Kong (outside a school (http://www.sgss.edu.hk/)). They were holding a yellow clue (from my friend). I think it is a detour *Shau Kei Wan*

Hi, I'm from Hong Kong and this is my first post. I think the dragons are from Hong Kong instead of Vietnam. The place is the harbour front of the Cultural Centre. I have searched some information about this picture. It is the opening ceremony about the fire safety campagine 2006 - 2007 which is held on 10 Dec. You can see the arch in the picture has some chinese words. It is "家居防火靠你我" which means the "preventing fire at home depends on you and me". And there are buildings behind. The tallest one in the picture looks like the Central Plaza.

I was shocked when I saw that scene.

Ok, it's 10 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui (here (http://www.centamap.com/gc/centamaptogoogle.aspx?x=835601&y=817269&sx=835601.54203&sy=817269.31339&z=2&brtype=1)), on the other side of the harbor from Shau Kei Wan. Looks like the racers might need an octopus card after all  :lol:.
And here (http://www.housingauthority.gov.hk/en/aboutus/resources/archivepublications/housingdimension/0,,5-0-15775,00.html) is a confirmation of the Dec 10 date Schwarzmoor mentioned (next to last entry).

Probably Cha's. It sounds like something they would say.

Shau Kei Wan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shau_Kei_Wan) is just a little northwest of Siu Sai Wan; it's another residential area with shopping areas, a fish market, docks, and some more hiking trails. (kmz attached)

Thanks, Rob. The camera is panning too fast to read the sign, but maybe the buildings in the background might be recognized. And the emblem on the stunt-team uniform is too small to read.

I can't see anyone getting eliminated here....Eric and Daniel and Charla and Mirna are the only ones i can see getting eliminated out of the final four. Charla and Mirna are still in only cus of that HUGE lead they got around 2 eps back and ED are seeming to self destruct.

Anyone have any idea if they'll be going to Hawaii this season?

I had an idea for a challenge in which they'd fly into Maui and have to drive to Hana. 50 Miles of road that takes around 2-3 hours of driving depending on traffic and it's all winding with single lane bridges....would make for a very interesting area but may be too dangerous.....entire area is rain forest-esque.


Edit: Not self destruct so much as lose their dominance. If anyone's self destructing it was the Cha's but they seem to have rectified that by the pitstop.

That's not true. C/M lost their lead in the last episode. They had a very good run in this episode. And I also think that E/D got along great in this episode, there didn't appear to be any bickering other then the "he's a woman, I do all the manly RB" thing...ALSO, these two teams, along with D/K make the F3.  :waves: Chas!

I think they are going to Hawaii CSSVT!

That sounds like it would be a cool place to go   :js:

Post by: CSSVT on April 08, 2007, 09:05:13 PM
Good point good point. The airlines have really been worse for teams this season it seems. Either way, next leg is almost obviously a Non Elim and if you ask me C/M are the next to go and my final order is Beauties, ED and Chas


The reason the Road to Hana leg would be so intreguing is this: if you arrive in the middle of the afternoon theres a LOT of traffic. I drove it at the end of my spring break, getting on it at 3 PM and arriving in Hana around 6. Left Hana around 6 30 and got in around 8. There's a LOT more traffic in the morning/afternoon.

Another possibility with this location is a detour, take a boat of some sort to get back to the "civilized" area of the island or drive back. with the winding road it's probaby a good 15-20 extra miles on the road than just following the edge of the Island.

Welcome CSSVT!

You might want to review the Hawaii info  here  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,8579.0.html) and sadly, we already know the final three.

Info on the locations we know in Hawaii can be found and discussed more in The Amazing Race 11 Spoiler section--lots of good stuff there. Hana would have been nice though...



Ooops! puddin beat me to it! :lol:

Well belated welcome then.

As to your feelings about performance.  While Eric & Danielle have bickered a little (historically if they are the bickering couple, they are the best behaving bickering couple this show has ever shown).

Charla & Mirna have raced all over the place, this season, from having terrible, terrible legs to doing fairly well.

Eric & Danielle have been in the rear for three episodes, but in reality have raced very strongly, with only aspects of the race that they had no control over putting them in the back of the pack.  With the exception of last episode where the Guido's got eliminated, but with a bus and a intersection to keep the teams close, I don't think they pushed as hard as tehy could have at the end of hte leg on the 1/2 mile walk, but since they knew that they wouldn't be eliminated (due to the known penality of the guidos') they didn't need to.

In fact, once you eliminate the aspect of the race that is outside the racers control, out of the teams left, they have been the most consistent, then Cha, Cha, Cha, then BQ's (who seems to have a habit of starting a race slow), then Charla & Mirna.

Post by: mswood on April 08, 2007, 09:42:59 PM
I'm glad with the way C/M and D/K are running the race. While they might not be getting along, we finally have TWO F/F teams who are both capable of winning.

While I like the BQ's (and did in season 10 as well) and once they get into the race race fairly well.  I don't care for how erratic Charla & Mirna race.  They more often then not are making bad, bad mistakes and taking longer at performing tasks then the other teams.  I find them much close this season to the racing of Lyn & Karlyn a team that I would have been mortified if they won.

I wish we had accurate travel time for each of the long Boat trip to Zanzibar so we could get more then one team to compare on that leg.  While they got a great flight if another team is to be believed all the teams tried and they were just the lucky team they had room for (which kind of removes one level of skill for that episode).

But in all the other episodes this season (even if they placed okay) didn't in fact run good legs.

At least with Dustin & Kandice we have solid proff of legs where they ran strong (one in fact was great).

Though I do like the aspect of seeing a couple all female teams in the top three.  I would rather it be two sets of females that ran strong even legs (of course thats just an opinion).  And we have had three seasons where 2 all male teams have been in the top three.

No I meant next week, since that would explain why Charla was so mad at them, and called them yield queens! Or maybe not! There are only a couple of episodes left and I'm interested to see where the next yield will at!

Kung Fu Warriors!!  :knuckles: Hell YEAH!


* Conflict erupts between two teams when one pair attempts to push their way onto a crucial flight before the others.

* Teams conspire to work together to take Dustin & Kandice out of the race. Will the strategy pay off?

*Teams get a kick out of their next destination when they're challenges to break down doors and fight off Kung Fu warriors.

This show is difficult to get a team eliminated.  But by talking about strategy it does help.  Like last season by talking about ways to maximize the 30 minute penailty on the BQ's (which they plained to all stay on the same tasks thus hopefully making sure no team fell more then 30 minutes behind).  And while it didn't impact the race due to the wait of cab drivers (and the teams not being able to see which detour they choose).  It certainly was teh smartest and most effective way to work together so far to eliminate a specific team.

I have a feeling that IF it works, it'll be on non elim (i think there's one left)



Hmm, i feel stupid for having to ask seeing as i've only missed maybe 3-5 shows in the entirety of TAR but is it possible to yield twice? or is like a fast forward where you get one yield and one yield only?
Title: Re: EP10: "We Are Trying To Make Love, Not War."

I'm *pretty* sure that you can only use your yield power once.. that makes it sound like some sort of super-hero thing.

A Team may use the YIELD to stop another Team only once throughout the entire course of the race. However, there is no limit to the number of times that a Team can be YIELDed by the other Teams.

Hi, i'm new and i live in hong kong. i read your guys' posts every few days. keep up the good work!

anyways, im not sure if this will help you or not, but the buildings in the D/O scene at the stunt car place don't look like any of the buildings near shaw studio. i live in the unviersity right next to shaw studios and as you can see,the place is pretty isolated from the city.

also that big billboard reminds me of one on hk island near north point, but there are others in hk.

No luck of finding the match with the building

I also think it is unlikely the Shaw's studio would be the place shown in promo. What I think is the production team somewhere finds a large piece of vacant land specific for amazing race only.

And I see there are only a few buildings in the background. But there are 3 buildings (one with the large sign) particularly exist. And ships are seen. So it could be quite a remote area near the harbour.

but I just woke up

 :lol: nice life!   :mornin:

But I got a surprise day off today! :wohoo:

Boingo--I was wondering the same thing! I got nowhere googling around Hong Kong re race tracks, race car driving schools and the like...But Macau seems to have a lot going on! They are host to the  Macau Grand Prix  (http://www.macau.grandprix.gov.mo/mgpc/public_html/index.htm)and something called the  Guia Circuit (http://www.olamacauguide.com/guia-circuit.html) which I think is a real race through city/neighborhood streets?


Can anyone identify the car? Could this be something arranged through the car manufactor?

Thanks to neobie and schwartzmoor for some great ideas! Love the idea of the airport (that was one scary airport to fly into...)

So The night E/D confessional from the Malaysian leg is in Hong Kong.

Lots of Chinese characters... I only recognize the one for "tea."  :groan:

Kung Fu and Car flipping are the Detour choices then. What's Kandice (?) holding? Maybe she needs to deliver it to someone through the obstacle, kung fu style course. Or coud it be the roadblock?

Oh man, the Hong Kong leg is going to be so awesome!

Climbing looks like a normal housing estate, so I'm thinking it's in Shaukeiwan/Siu Sai Wan. It's a reference to the usage of bamboo poles in construction (see: Rush Hour).

Yes, 2382 2280 is a Hong Kong phone number. I'm out of town right now and am pretty tied up, but I'll try to get to the restaurant to figure out where it is, by the next 48 hours, I promise!

GEORGIA PEACH, I will offer some reasoniing as to researching MACAU for episode 10 doesn't make sense. We know that teams left Macau on the hydrofoil returning to Hong Kong on the morning of Dec. 14. That means that the pistop was the evening of Dec. 13 for Episode 11 in Macau. There is no logical place that teams could go from Hong Kong and get back to Macau in time to do things in Macau since we also know that two of them were spotted in Hong Kong on Dec. 12. Episode 10 should be only in the Hong Kong area. It would make no sense to have it end in Macau since we know that episode 11 will be Macau.

I'm interested to see if D/O are with C/M and E/D against D/K, for some reason I don't see that happening.

As a Hong Kong local, I try to help as much as I can...

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR11/ep10/00274-9-2007.jpg)

Just find this place on this page http://www.pbasehk.com/Macy/Macy2232/DSC00505 , note that the phone number matches! This restaurant is at 120 ,NGA TSIN WAI ROAD, Kowloon City, you can find the exact location from http://www.ypmap.com/en/viewer.asp?mapService=LocationMap

I know this is just some random photo, but since this place is also near Kai Tak where Neobie suggests for the location of the car thing, it is highly possible that the place of that task is at Kai Tak.

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR11/ep10/00304-9-2007.jpg)[IMG]

haha, I also find this place from here http://hk.yp.yahoo.com/cobrand/listing.html?c=714&b=540&r=0&d=0 , the name of that shop is #543, and it is at the same street as that restaurant, in fact just next to it: 122 Nga Tsin Wai Rd, Kowloon City!  :happy:

so the climbing thing must be a detour since you can see both C/M in the gear!

Detour: Driving/Climbing
Roadblock: Kung Fu thingy that Kandice is seen doing?

hmm..I wonder what they are doing at a restaurant

Due to D/K sighting in Shau Kei Wan, I think that the Kung Fu detour is located there, maybe near the Shau Kei Wan Government School mentioned by another poster months ago.

FLIGHTS TO HONG KONG
Teams arrived at the Kuala Lumpur pitstop between about 2pm and 5pm on Dec. 10. I assume that they will be released 12 hours later and have the chioce of the earliest flights from KL to HK:

CI654 departs KUL 0750 arrives HKG 1155
MH72 departs KUL 0915 arrives HKG 1300
CX720 departs KUL 0935 arrives HKG 1330

There is also a CX flight at 1755 and a MH flight at 1845 if it happens to be a 24 hour extended pitstop. Each takes about 3 3/4 hours.

From what Phil said in one of his preview pieces, he had to spend 13 hours on a Junk in Hong Kong harbor.  So that must be where the pit stop is for this leg.  And it sounds like there is a good gap between arrivals.

Didn't that refer to an earlier season (help me out here--I'm terrible at dates/times!) when they were all on the boat crammed in together? Seems like I read about them having no shower or anything and being somewhat seasick so I thought he meant that time...

I meant to mention this last night.....in Phil's explanation of the YIELD, he specified there are "2 opportunities" throughout the race to use a YIELD.  I took that to mean there are only 2 Yields through the race so does that mean there are no more Yields?  Wasn't this the second Yield to show up on the race?

Does the Yield roll over to another episode if not used? I recall hearing there was a yield in the first leg as in EP1  ???
And I think the junket did refer to an earlier season ..now to off to dig.

Whats the word as far as TBC/NEL?

Leg 10 - TBC
Leg 11 - FF (NEL)
Leg 12 - Yield (Elim)

OR

Leg 10 - NEL (FF)
Leg 11 - TBC
Leg 12 - Yield (Elimination)

FFs can't be after the 11th leg so depending on where the TBC is that makes it in the NEL.
Title: Re: EP10: "We Are Trying To Make Love, Not War."
Post by: michael on April 09, 2007, 07:23:38 PM
I don't think there would be a NEL before a TBC because the penalty would be so drawn out then...so it's probably going to be

TBC
NEL
ELIM
Title: Re: EP10: "We Are Trying To Make Love, Not War."
Post by: Tyler on April 09, 2007, 07:32:08 PM
That makes sense and there is no way they would do a YIELD and FF on the same leg.

Leg 10 - TBC
Leg 11 - NEL (FF)
Leg 12 - Elimination of Chas (YIELD)
Leg 13 - Finale

Is there a chance that Leg 12 is actually the start of the Finale and D/O is only running as decoys?

Post by: michael on April 09, 2007, 08:21:56 PM
the the NEL being on leg 12, and the final three teams just trying to get the highest start time on the final leg? That would be interesting...it would be a lot like the old TAR seasons, but if they did that they probably would have made it a two hour finale.
Title: Re: EP10: "We Are Trying To Make Love, Not War."
Post by: gingerman28 on April 09, 2007, 08:54:22 PM
We've had one Fast Forward used (Krakow).  But didn't we determine that there had been an ep with a FF but no one used it? I recall that someone spotted a green card in someones hand.  In past TARs there have only been two FFs.  So maybe there will not be another FF in the eps that are left.  But there still seems to be a Yield ahead since Phil mentioned that there are only two in the race which seems to hint that there is still another one ahead.

The mention of the Junk was in one of the pieces that Phil recorded after the two polish eps.  I'll try to find it again. He was talking about how "hard" his job is and he didn't always have time to go to a nice hotel and an example was the 17 hour wait in Zanzibar and another time was the long wait on the Junk.

gman, i don't think that ended up being a FF after all, it didn't look like it anyways..

I think it convinced mswood and me--but we were in a serious minority!

Due to D/K sighting in Shau Kei Wan, I think that the Kung Fu detour is located there, maybe near the Shau Kei Wan Government School mentioned by another poster months ago.

(http://mud.mm-a3.yimg.com/image/2752906477)

It looks like this is the background where you can see Kandice climb up the building, but I don't know the exact location of this place yet.

Thanks serendipity. I searched the same pic when I search about Shau Kei Wan and I found one with better resolution. It looks very similar, but it is not really the place. The windows does not look the same.
The pic is actually from Ngau Tau Kok and the shorter building is the primary school. The pic is taken in 2002. However, the whole area has been demolished.

It is actually quite a common building in Hong Kong. I think this type of building also can be found in Tung Tau Tsuen or San Po Kong area (somewhere near Kowloon City - Old "Kai Tak" Airport")
Maybe they are looking for "Kung Fung" task before or after the task at old airport.

(it's just my guess)

As tot he Fast Forward.

When it was used in the other episode, Phil makes no comments about the status of the fast forward.  Which is very unuusally, as we normally get a this is the first of two, or this is the last, ect.

As to reasons why I beleive it was on the leg going to Africa, is because of two Insider Clips.

1.  When Danny & Oswald tell Uchenna & Joyce that they aren't going to use the fast forward.

2.  Eric tells the Guidos (when they are stuck significantly behind teh others) that he is sure that Charla & Mirna used the Fast Forward...

So dialogue does suggest that the first one was used.

Now last year, when the first Yield wasn't used, when it was used in episode 10, Phil just says its a yield and what its about no comment about how many.

So I still kind of think the 2 fast forwards are now gone.

But there is still the chance that I am wrong (never).

Post by: mswood on April 10, 2007, 02:55:59 AM
Just rewatch both clips, and there is no "if", involved.

D&O say good news to UJ that tehy aren't going for it, don't want it don't need, so its yours.

In Eric's I actually remembered it wrong, he says they are going for it even though by the time they get there the other teams will already be on leg 8, it continues for a bit between them and the guidos who say C&M will already have won and be at teh ATM cashing the check.

But both clips don't ever mention if there is a Fast Forward ont he leg, and as its the only leg to even mention it (besides of course the leg where we saw a fast forward used), I still really believe that there was one.

I'll include some Chinese signs later, but here's two I can decipher  :lol: : Swindon Book Co. is at 13 Lock road, not far from the Star ferry; and "Kiss My Kids" (frame is flipped for some reason) is an educational toy store that, according to this blog (http://www.travelpod.com/travel-photo/rbisset/rtw05-06/1127102400/100_0472xsized.jpg/tpod.html), is on Nathan road. The HK yellow pages lists the address as "Shun Lee Disciplined Serv Qtrs Coml Shopping Arc, Kwun Tong," whatever that means.

Just do some online research... there are 4 Kiss My Kids stores in HK (http://www.baby-kingdom.com/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=921214&forum=3&4 , from the post at 07-03-07 11:56). And from the picture you provided, I think it is really the one where the Chas passed by. With the phone number on that picture, I am sure that store is the Tsim Sha Tsui one. I will go there to have a look and take some pictures to confirm tonight.

Post by: serendipity on April 10, 2007, 07:01:35 AM
I don't think there would be a NEL before a TBC because the penalty would be so drawn out then...so it's probably going to be

TBC
NEL
ELIM

I also think that this is the most possible scenario. In fact, I personally believe that the Malaysian leg is supposed to be NEL, but since U/J were so far behind, they were not be able to do those tasks at night and not be able to catch up, the producers philiminated them to avoid any logistics problem... so poor... :groan:

And I remembered that Phil didn't mention how many FF are available in the race in the Poland leg, so I think most probably there would not be any FF in future legs.

Transportation

Notes: "MTR (Mass Transit Railway)" is subway.

from new airport:
- Taxi: most expensive, could be traffic jam in tunnels
- Bus: slowest, cheapest, could be traffic jam in tunnels
- MTR(airport express): Fastest, nearly as expensive as taxi

from/to Kowloon City (old airport)
- Taxi: expensive
- Bus: cheaper, difficult to find bus station for non-locals

from/to Tsim Sha Tsui
- MTR: fastest
- Taxi: expensive, for sure traffic jam in cross harbour tunnel
- Bus: cheapest, Maybe faster than taxi in cross harbour tunnel

from/to Shau Kee Wan
- MTR: fastest, problem is how to walk to the destination from the station
- Taxi: expensive, for sure traffic jam in cross harbour tunnel
- Bus: cheapest, Maybe faster than taxi in cross harbour tunnel, difficult to find bus station for non-locals

to Sheung Wan (ferry to Macau)
- MTR: fastest, Pier is next to MTR station
- Taxi: expensive, for sure traffic jam in cross harbour tunnel and Causeway Bay/Wanchai/Central Area
- Bus: cheapest, Maybe faster than taxi in cross harbour tunnel, for sure traffic jam in Causeway Bay/Wanchai/Central Area

Okay, TAR Detectives--wake up!  Time to   :geekon:

  We still have LOTS to do!

Thanks to the awesome work of our on the site Hong Kong crew (neobie and serendipity and all, and Slowhatch of course)   we have made a very nice beginning!

Here's what I think we know/don't know so far:  (feel free to jump in here!)

Pitstop at Carcosa --moving on to HK

Photos of teams at the airport in KL
O/D buying tickets/ somewhere--would this be likely at the airport or would they more likely use a travel agent?

Thanks to apskip we have a good idea of what flights they might use:

Quote
Quote
FLIGHTS TO HONG KONG
Teams arrived at the Kuala Lumpur pitstop between about 2pm and 5pm on Dec. 10. I assume that they will be released 12 hours later and have the chioce of the earliest flights from KL to HK:

CI654 departs KUL 0750 arrives HKG 1155
MH72 departs KUL 0915 arrives HKG 1300
CX720 departs KUL 0935 arrives HKG 1330

There is also a CX flight at 1755 and a MH flight at 1845 if it happens to be a 24 hour extended pitstop. Each takes about 3 3/4 hours.

How would teams get from the airport to the car crash site and the Kung Fu site? How much time would they need for taxis vs public transportation? Pictures of HK Transport?
  
We need some times to help figure out which comes first --are  the car crash and the Kung Fu movie climb occuing at about the same times, suggesting Detour options?

Or could the car crash be a FF??

Chateau! We need Chateautime help please when you can!

Car crash option--would this be a shoutout to a movie too? Who/what company could arrange something like this? Can we track down the car or drivers or company and get confirmation??  

The Kung Fu movie/bamboo climb may possibly be at Shau Kei Wan district since we know D/K were spotted getting a clue in front of a school there. Or-could this be where Kandice is kicking down doors?

We need a location for the bamboo climb! And if the stunt people are a shout out to the movie Rush Hour--who would have supplied them? What film group or stunt team? Can we find out who and get confirmation?

How are teams getting from place to place?  Taxi or public transport? Routes? Which is faster?In what looks like a Roadblock, what the heck is Kandice doing? The Rockette is using those legs to kick down a door-- where? Why? What is that peach colored thingy she is carrying? What will she do with it?

Are we going to need a PItstop? (I don't think so myself, since I think this will be a TBC)  If no Pitstop--where will Phil be to say "You are still racing"??

We have screenshots that have been identified in front of the Ritz--would this be a clue box location? Did anyone see anything? Could this be the Mat location?

We have photo ID at the  Cultural Centre  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,8579.msg175498.html#msg175498)--is this another clue box location? Or are they there to catch the ferry? Beware--here there be dragons!   :lol:

We know the teams have to go to Macau, and we have them returning on the morning of the 14th with Phil on the Ferry.

And then there is Macau for next week! puddin--can you open up that thread now please? I think our info is going to start to overlap! Thanks!

Money Wise

Buy a Octopus Card (The world most successful e-money card, you can use it on any transportation except Taxi, also 7-11, McDonalds, supermarket...)
Get it refund in Sheung Wan MTR Station before leaving HK to Macau
Spend the rest of your HK dollars in Macau as 1:1 ratio.

We did know about the Octopus card somewhere in here but nice to see how it can be used!

Can you check the link at the Cultural Centre above, and also tell us if the location in front of the Ritz is near anything else we have found? I'm thinking that will be either a cluebox or the Mat...

Great job peach!

about the detours/roadblocks -

 I think since we see both C/M wearing climbing gear, we can say that one of the detours is the bamboo climb, and the other detour will proably be the race car, since D/O already took the FF, and I doubt they'd have a FF on a TBC leg.

The roadblock  is probably whatever we see Kandice doing when she is kicking down that door.

Also, from the webclues we can gather that C/M and D/K are trying to get on a good flight. Are these the only two who make it (since we see them both in taxi's at the same time in hong kong during the preview). This would put them possibly hours ahead of the other teams, or do all the teams end up getting on the same flight?

Maybe, maybe not. It's too easy to go to either place.
If they go to Macau right after Cultural Centre
From  Cultural Centre to Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal - on foot or by Taxi
From  Cultural Centre to  Sheung Wan  - by cross harbour ferry and then MTR (or taxi)

15 minutes per ferry from Sheung Wan
30 minutes per ferry from Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal

That is "Central". Those buildings are Hong Kong landmark buildings. I doubt they went to there, unless they took cross harbour ferry (Star ferry, a must in Hong Kong) from Cultural Centre to "Central".

On the subject of Detours/Roadblocks,

I agree that the bamboo climb is part of a Detour task, but I think it's part of a broader Kung Fu Detour - which would encompass Kandice kicking down the door. I say this on the basis that in the preview scene with Charla/Mirna in climbing gear, Mirna's performing a martial arts-esque kick, and in another preview scene, Eric is shown climbing the building while the words "Kung Fu" flash by on screen.

I agree with georgiapeach - I'm leaning towards the stunt car task being the other Detour choice, with a very slim chance of it being a Fast Forward...

And I don't think we've been shown the Roadblock, maybe that will come out in Phil's preview?

in terms of flights, I don't think the teams will be that spread apart this leg - Eric and Mirna are together at the airport in one scene (possibly plotting against the Beauty Queens?  :o) and I think that Oswald/Danny went to a travel agency (thus avoiding potential booking conflicts with other teams)...I hope the teams are close together, I always feel that it makes for a more exciting race!

I'm not 100% sure though, that the intro caps would confirm racers going to Statue Square. It's a central enough place (hey, it's called Central for a reason) for cameramen to just pop by and film a bit of stock footage...

Temperatures varied wildly those few days, going up as high as the 26C range and as low as 12C in a single day, if I remember correctly.

(Still can't believe I missed them after getting Izad's Malaysia spoiler, hearing rumours about them heading to Hong Kong, sending a friend off at the airport the very day they arrived, and taking the hydrofoil to Macau three days later! There is a God, and he probably hates me... :'()

TSC--I think we definitely have a Kung Fu theme!

I think Kandice's task may be the Roadblock just because that is the only thing we see ONE person doing so far...

the sky in the photo from the web promo of Eric climbing the bamboo still looks darker then it does in C/M and D/K photo to me.

Michael D, I hate to burst your bubble, but please reread the following information form page 1 of this thread(and the SPOILERS thread):

HONG KONG NEXT SIGHTING
I have received information that Oswald and Danny and Dustin and Kandice have been spotted in Hong Kong. There was no mention of any other teams.


Now, it is possible that somehow Charla and Mirna were around but did not get sighted. However, it looks to me that the two teams that made the flight were D/K adn O/D, not C/M.

Yeah but you know Mirna! She's clearly good at airports so she could turn up anywhere. And since we don't know where or when D/O and the BQ's were seen, it doesn't help a lot in pinpointing a time or a task--it could have been anywhere. Unless you know more about your spoiler that you can share?

At first I thought teams were using the Star ferry and just happened to catch the fire safety program mentioned by schwarzmoor. But now we have proof that they wander around Tsim Sha Tsui doing...something.

Yeah but you know Mirna! She's clearly good at airports so she could turn up anywhere. And since we don't know where or when D/O and the BQ's were seen, it doesn't help a lot in pinpointing a time or a task--it could have been anywhere. Unless you know more about your spoiler that you can share?

PEACH, I think you know the answer to your question. If I knew anything more it would have been shared back on Dec. 12 when I learned what I reported. Sure, any team could have also been on the same flight as Dustin/Kandice. In fact, if you look at the flight times all 4 teams should have made it onto the first one. However, the hints for the episode seem to indicate that some were left behind to catch a later flight. That would most likely have been Eric/Danielle and Charla/Mirna. There may be an alternate explanation once we see the episode.
Title: Re: EP10: "We Are Trying To Make Love, Not War."
Post by: michael on April 10, 2007, 03:44:09 PM
apskip has a point - just because C/M try getting on a flight it doesn't always mean they are going to make it...I wonder if it is just D/K and D/O, if it isn't that then it's most likely all of them, or D/O and E/D catch a flight that lands 30 minutes later or something like that.

HONG KONG NEXT SIGHTING
I have received information that Oswald and Danny and Dustin and Kandice have been spotted in Hong Kong. There was no mention of any other teams.

I guess my point was that this occurs at one point on a timeline. We have no idea based on this one bit of info what else is happening, who has already come and gone, when this occurred--with no other info to pinpoint this more completely (and no idea as to when they were seen in relation to other teams) it is impossible to relate this one bit of info to any other teams and who might or might not have gotten on a flight. Just trying to keep it in perspective...

I do think that we have a screenshot of D/O waving a ticket so I do believe they got a flight, and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the BQ's all the way!

*Teams get a kick out of their next destination when theyre challenged by high flying Kung Fu Warriors while scaling a massive bamboo scaffold.
*THE FINAL FOUR ALL-STAR TEAMS FEEL THE PRESSURE AS THE STAKES CONTINUE TO RISE WHEN RACERS PARTAKE IN A HIGH FLYING DETOUR

I wonder if the "lose the losers" line comes from a race to the fake pit stop, with C/M and D/K in the lead...D/K would probably out run C/M then  :yess:

Of course that is just wishful thinking.

Puddin, I'm confused too, maybe Phil's preview will shed more light...but I'm guessing it's going to focus on the fight between C/M and D/K

No it would just mean the thirty minute penality applies at the Pit Stop and on a DBC leg there is only one Pit Stop at the end of the 2cd episode.

No logical reason why that penalty wouldn't be applied there.

Not that I think this is what will happen, but it certainly could and it really doesn't violate the spirit of the 30 minute penality.  After all teh two episodes are just one lon gleg with twice the number of tasks (usually two large equilizers and noprovided rest area with food.

And after many of us not wanting to believe the the Pit Stop in Poland was leg 1 of that night, I am not discounting anything.

I think the D/O confessional was taken out of context, because in D/O mat chat they say they think E/D follow to much...That picture of E/D scares me ... it's like Danielle wants to kick my ass for liking the yield queens.

woops..what I meant is, they are probably going to go for some story that all teams want the F3 to be O/D, E/D, C/M and D/K being the "hated team".

That's what I have done last night!  :happy:
I went to Haipong Road, Tsim Sha Tsui and confirmed that this is the place where the Chas passed by.

And the image is flipped as discussed, therefore, the Chas were walking towards the Harbour City or the ferry pier, i.e. the place they got their detour clue in TAR2. I am not sure why they were there though, because if they were not going to catch a ferry, they probably just came out of the MTR station at that point.

From the CBS blogs:

James (from James & Tyler, winners of TAR10) opinion:

Quote
"Pirate Hookers??? Eric couldn't be more wrong! Well... for the most part ;) jk I'm loving our Beauties taking first place on this leg, but i was a bit suprised to see them use the yield again. I know it is part of their strategy, but i would think after yielding Bama in our season only to end up last in that leg, that they would have been a little discouraged. My opinion of the yield is, it only fires up the competition and create more enemies, and rarely actually is the main reason a team is eliminated. But, all in all, they are staying true to their way of running the race and I think it's safe to say they are the STRONGEST all Female team on TAR ever!!! I HATE Mirna & Shmirna! could you imagine if they had been on our season? i think we would have all worked together to get them off on the first leg. THEY are the most selfish, ignorant team ever and I'm really hoping that i get to see Kandice b*&%h slap Charla in the episodes to come."

I'm hoping he meant for Kandice to bitch slap Mirna, because slapping Charla would be so mean LOL

You're welcome! You guys are nice~

Just like Neobie, I am still upset that I did not know they came to HK at that time, I missed the golden chance to see the teams!!!  :groan:

If I actually saw D/K or C/M on the race, I would definitely helped them as much as I can!

For the elevator, I think it is very difficult to know the exact location, maybe it is just the elevator in KL airport? If it is actually the elevator of HSBC, I may go there to have a look tonight since it is just outside my office!!  ;D

I wonder if Eric had any advantage in the HK leg? I remembered he and Jeremy won a trip to HK in TAR9.

Would it be possible that the elevator is from HK airport? It is my first thought.

Personally I think the scene of Statue Square and Lion dance would have the same "fate" as Putrajaya Mosque or Petronas Towers in the Malaysian leg, i.e., randomly shown during the episode or during phil's introduction in the beginning of next episode. (Because I saw similar lion dance scene when I rewatch ep8 from Season 2.) I think those places are unlikely to be route marker.

:(But I can't explain why Chas appear in Tsim Sha Tsui

Hi, I am back (Now is lunch break)

I got it!!!!!

The  Elevator  is from "Time Square" (Causeway Bay)
Credit: elex from miniforum (Hong Kong)
http://www.miniforum.org/showpost.fcgi?MGID=2128119&page=1&tempid=2


Definitly not airport (because of the route sign and lighting - Airport is brighter)
Definitly not HSBC. HSBC Elevator is only internal use.

100% make sense in Time Square lowest floor.



P.S. again. I am from Hong Kong

I just pass by IFC Tower 2 this noon when I go to buy lunch, and I have a strange feeling that maybe the elevator is located there, because I see the exit of the airport express there and there are two elevators very similar to the one shown in the clip, I will go there to have a look when I off work today.~ :happy:

2. IFC Tower II (Central) (** Should leave at "Hong Kong" MTR station)
-> Cross Habour Ferry (Good Choice) or MTR (bad choice) or Taxi (suck choice) ->
3. Cultual Centre (Tsim Sha Tsui)
-> Detour??

What about a repeat of the TAR2 clue, of going up the tallest building in Hong Kong?

The thing is, the IFC 2 has overtaken Central Plaza since a couple of years back, so this could definitely lead to a couple of Mary/Peach Central Plaza/Centre Building mistakes... :lol3: I've seen documentaries being filmed on the rooftop of the IFC before.

Not that Dustin/Kandice's lift looks anything like the one that goes up the IFC tower; if anything it's the IFC mall, which... doesn't make sense either... ???

Neobie, this is the info sunkid passed on, he had his "wan's" mixed up or so it seems?


Dustin and Kandice were spotted in Siu Sai Wan, Hong Kong (outside a school). They were holding a yellow clue (from my friend). I think it is a detour.

Well... This is how my friend's school looks like: (http://xb2.xanga.com/e27d0a4038330104247940/b73638634.jpg)

Ok, seems like all I've been doing is sleeping and working (back to work after being off 1 1/2 yrs).  Just got done reading all of the messages from the last 3 days.

My first thought when I saw the promo was that O/D and the van roll-over is a FF.  The pictures that have been available so far do not show O/D in any of the other tasks.  The roll-over in itself seems to be a FF task to me.

Pictures from Phil's web video will probably prove me wrong but I think I'll stick with my 1st instinct for now.
Title: Re: EP10: "We Are Trying To Make Love, Not War."
Post by: michael on April 11, 2007, 11:55:38 AM
Two things that rule out a FF for me are:

1. D/O already took a FF (something tells me Mary didn't know what she was talking about in the interview)
2. This is strongly suspected to be a TBC, which wouldn't leave in room for a FF.

They probably just take the second detour option or something.
Title: Re: EP10: "We Are Trying To Make Love, Not War."
Post by: puddin on April 11, 2007, 12:17:36 PM
Michael, Mary did say they could have went for the FF at the intersection that the Models & Rob/Kim took but still I just don't think the Car/Rollover is the Fast Forward  and will go with it being the other detour option but I could be wrong, lol.
Jeffs Survivor preview was up early last night so we can keep our fingers crossed that Phil's will be up tonight.

I loved the Kuwait and Train spoilers we got from TAR10 for some reason, I remember they got me really excited about TAR again..I wasn't really that into TAR9 after MOJO got eliminated :(

OK, back to something remotely on topic!!

In the preview you saw of Charla kicking down the door was Mirna any where to be seen? If not then that is more then likely the road block! I just assumed that since climbing a bamboo wall and then kicking down a door all kung fu like all seems like the same thing, it was one detour option! Maybe not..

I loved the Kuwait and Train spoilers we got from TAR10 for some reason, I remember they got me really excited about TAR again..I wasn't really that into TAR9 after MOJO got eliminated :(

OK, back to something remotely on topic!!

In the preview you saw of Charla kicking down the door was Mirna any where to be seen? If not then that is more then likely the road block! I just assumed that since climbing a bamboo wall and then kicking down a door all kung fu like all seems like the same thing, it was one detour option! Maybe not..

How about Kung-Fu in 2 parts.  The first part, teams climb the bamboo is for 2 people.  The door kicking, after the climb, is the Roadblock part.

But what about the Cha's? If the car crash is the other detour option then how do they advance to the top of the floor?

I'm guessing C/M have completed the detour here

Okay, I think that in TAR10 they were allowed to do the 2nd FF even if the team had claimed the 1st FF BECAUSE the Intersection/FF was the 2nd/last FF and they didn't want to make it to where one team wouldn't be able to go for it because they were stuck with someone who had already claimed it.

However, this time the roles are reversed and the  Intersected FF was before the regular so that is why I think that you can't claim the FF twice in this like you could in TAR10.

I just assumed that since climbing a bamboo wall and then kicking down a door all kung fu like all seems like the same thing, it was one detour option! Maybe not..

I think I'm going to agree with you Michael that the door kicking is a Roadblock. Remember that Charla has to do three of the last four roadblocks, so if the door kicking is to be done by one person from each team in the Detour (assuming that there's only one door to kick), then why didn't Mirna do the kicking? Plus, in that shot of Kandice she wasn't wearing any harness-allowing jacket or whatever it's called, and I think if it was the first part of the Detour she would have already worn it. If it was after the pole climbing, then that's another story. She could have removed it after the climbing task was done.

If anyone from our HK investigators can ID what Kandice is holding here, it's very much appreciated. An emblem, perhaps? Maybe the Roadblock is find something that matches to this emblem?

Great job so far, everyone, especially to our HK investigators. :wohoo:

I think this is not going to be a TBC leg cause werent Oswald and Danny spotted in Guam? So it wouldnt make any sense to do this TBC leg and have it be a NEL, cause after Hong Kong, teams would got o Macau, and that would be the NEL pitstop before guam... Its just what I think....

I googled up Bruce Lee (because guys.....he WAS kung fu....you can look it up) & Bamboo & found some interesting items:

www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15922063/


- A new (large) Amusement park is being HONORING BRUCE in a the Chinese city of Shunde (near Hong Kong)
- Shunde was his ancestral home (he was actually born in SF).
- This city is also known for its BAMBOO (& as a Mfg center).
- Bamboo is often used for scaffolding (at least in this town, but probably elsewhere)
- Bamboo was a often used as weapon in Bruce Lee's movies.
- I think most of Bruce's movies were filmed in Hong Kong.
- With video Games etc. Bruce's memory lives.  (Even though he died in 1973)
& btw....Bruce Lee was the MAN.  :hero:


& any male in my generation would go out of his way to honor him, maybe there are some Bruce / Kung Fu / Bamboo etc. tasks?

The roadblock probably has to do with looking through rooms (smashing doors) for chinese symbols, which will probably be the name of the place they have to go or their next clue. ???

Maybe it is not "what is Kandice going to do with that sign"  but "how many more of those does she need to find"!

Does that look like a symbol for somewhere/something to you HK guys? (and did I say how glad we are that you all are here playing??   :hearts:)

 riomangatar--a TBC is by definition also a NEL becuase it is all one long uber leg--you are still racing. We call it "two legs" but it could also be considered one reallly looongg one.

Best guess is what Michael said earlier:

Hong Kong (Ep 10): TBC
Macau (Ep 11): NEL
Guam (Ep 12): Elim (BYE to my favorites)
Hawaii and the finish mat with the final three (Ep 13)

Northwest Kowloon

Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb

The Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb Museum is located at Tonkin Street in Sham Shui Po, Kowloon. It is a five-minute walk from the Cheung Sha Wan MTR Station. The Museum is composed of an Eastern Han dynasty brick tomb and an exhibition gallery. The tomb was discovered in 1955 when the Government was leveling a hill slope at the Lei Cheng Uk Village for the construction of resettlement buildings.

According to the structure, calligraphy and content of the inscriptions on tomb bricks and tomb finds, it is believed that the tomb was built in the Eastern Han dynasty (25 - 220 AD). The tomb was declared as a gazetted monument in 1988 and is preserved permanently thereafter. Though it is closed to public for conservation reasons, visitors can still have a glimpse of the interior of the tomb through the glass panel at the Entrance Passage.

I think since we see both C/M wearing climbing gear, we can say that one of the detours is the bamboo climb, and the other detour will proably be the race car, since D/O already took the FF, and I doubt they'd have a FF on a TBC leg.

But we know, as David & Mary said, that they can now used the Fast Forward twice. (Madagascar Leg, Season 10)

In this case however. it is just the reverse IF there is a FF.
D/O took it via an Intersection with U/J
Now they CAN do it alone

In clips and in interviews for that season, they talked about that issue.  The only reason David & Mary would be able to use the Fast Forward again, was because they were with Lyn & Karlyn who hadn't yet used a fast forward.  That way every team had the chance to use the Fast Forward and weren't automatically disqualified because of random teamups.

But since Oswald & Danny have used a fast forward (as part of a team) they shouldn't be able to use one solely.

So if there is a Fast Forward left on the race (which I doubt) then the only team that would have used it this leg is possible Eric & Danielle (I don't recall seing much footage of them for this week, unless I have missed something.

NO it was schwarzmoor and friends lead  :jam:

I only contribute very little.  :js: Other guys from HK also did a good job.

I think it is more likely the original Siu Sai Wan/Sau Kei Wan spoiler is incorrect rather than BQs are lost in those areas.
It is because those places do not deserve to be route marker.
AND BQs are smart!!!

I really hoped D/K didn't get lost, but I remembered in another discussion board someone mentioned that he saw some productin crew in Shau Kei Wan a week before that leg, and I personnally think it was preparation work for the filming later.

I got some photos from IFC elevators yesterday, but it seems that they are not the same as those shown in pictures here, I don't know why. In fact, taking these elevators can lead you to the airport express.

For the detour, I think it is about the stunts commonly seen in HK movies, Bamboo climbing/kung fu or car stunt.

Hi annie!
You are a Detective now! :wohoo:

That spoiler originally came from sun7kid--he first said that he thought it was Siu Sei WAn then "Sorry if I have been confused... Maybe it is not siu sai wan, maybe chai wan? somewhere with name in 'wan' in hong kong" and then he sent us that picture of the school a couple of pages back. I have sent him an email today to see if he can come back and help...


Well... This is how my friend's school looks like:
Thanks.

Is sun7kid  from Hong Kong?

Siu Sei Wan is next to Chai Wan. Chai Wan is next to Shau Kei Wan.
Cheung Sha Wan is completely different location.

The thing is , it makes sense for a Hong Kong to mix-up Siu Sei Wan,Shau Kei Wan and Chai Wan. These locations are really close. That school is actually not exactly in "Shau Kei Wan", it's  in the middle between Shau Kei Wan and Chai Wan. However, NO WAY a Hong Kong local will mix up Cheung Sha Wan  and Siu Sei Wan/Shau Kei Wan/Chai Wan. Cheung Sha Wan is in West Kowloon and Siu Sei Wan/Shau Kei Wan/Chai Wan is in East Hong Kong Island.

Of course, its easy for a tourist to mix up those "Wan"s

Can anyone think of a scenario that would put them together in the ferry? and the Cha's were being filmed.

Well teams have been near on on the same transport (plane) as the producers before.  Usually when either a team is way a head or way behind.

If that was the first part of a leg, then I would asume the CHa's were the last tieam and they went to Hong Kong airport on the same Ferry.

If it was the end of a leg, then I would assume it that the Cha's were way out in front and Phil was rushing to beat tehm to the mat.

I have no idea about down time, if Phil ever spends anytime with the racers, but if it an extended Pit Stop it could be just the extra down time were both producers and teams would be abe to go out and have some fun.  And we know that even during this time teams have both camera and sound guys recording them.

puddin, those are the eric pictures that are confusing me! there were some in colour and the sky looked darker...yet there is all this shining light. I can't tell if it's from the video, or if it's the actual sun.

One thing that makes me lean towards it not being the sun is that in all the shots we've seen so far in the episode (including D/O race car shot) it was cloudy.

I think these pictures were made with a small aperture, curved wid-angle lens.  Because this lens, we are getting non-traditional shadows, reflections, etc.  Look how distorted Mirna looks with this lens.

In the picture that shows the bamboo, BQs and ninjas, I think the backpacks have the camera-on-a-stick coming out of them.

No, seriously puddin, I'm not like that lol. I mean, of course I want the BQs to be ahead, but if there is obious signs that they are behind I'm not going to go make excuses. I just think that that shot looks weird with all the random lights every where and the sky looking darker, plus every shot, including the shot of that camera man, it's clearly cloudy outside.

I was looking for weather archives before but I couldn't find anything :(

I actually hope Phil's preview focuses on E/D and D/O, because we haven't seen much of them from the episode...but I doubt it will, because usually Phil just talks about what is shown in the preview.

Episode 8 is in Malaysia, Michael. And IGN.com (http://media.tv.ign.com/media/826/826377/vids_1.html) don't have any new ones yet.

For some strange reason, this site (http://www.celebrityspider.com/news/april07/article040607-8.html) tried to install a Dialer/Spyware on my computer. Thank goodness for Norton! [/random]

On the weather in Hong Kong, if it helps any: there was a miserable drizzle for three days, three days of rain in a month otherwise free from any precipitation! Poor racers...

Temperatures varied wildly those few days, going up as high as the 26C range and as low as 12C in a single day, if I remember correctly.

(Still can't believe I missed them after getting Izad's Malaysia spoiler, hearing rumours about them heading to Hong Kong, sending a friend off at the airport the very day they arrived, and taking the hydrofoil to Macau three days later! There is a God, and he probably hates me... :'()

from neobie upstream--those temps are 53-79 F

Wait--why do we think they arrive in HK at night??

Apskip gave us this upstream:

Quote
FLIGHTS TO HONG KONG
Teams arrived at the Kuala Lumpur pitstop between about 2pm and 5pm on Dec. 10. I assume that they will be released 12 hours later and have the chioce of the earliest flights from KL to HK:

CI654 departs KUL 0750 arrives HKG 1155
MH72 departs KUL 0915 arrives HKG 1300
CX720 departs KUL 0935 arrives HKG 1330

There is also a CX flight at 1755 and a MH flight at 1845 if it happens to be a 24 hour extended pitstop. Each takes about 3 3/4 hours.

Maybe that first pic is them leaving for the KL airport in the early AM darkness but the next one is in a taxi in HK in daylight...

Unless it is another 24 hour Pitstop in KL then all bets are off.

PEach it should be 12 hours and we have a bit of a hint that it is.

So far, for every 24 + hour Pit Stop we have enjoyed clips for the Pit Stops.  THis week all we got were insider, and Mat Chats so it should be a 12 hour pit stop.

The reason I don't think the taxi of D/K, C/M are any where near the same place as the Dustin Vs. Mirna is because both dustin and kandice have different hair when they are sitting in that taxi.

Hard to tell with Eric's climb but earlier with Chas on the bamboo wall there is the same glow in the windows and you can see BLUE SKY  behind the building.  From the angle of the sun hitting the window it looks to be mid morning or mid afternoon .  Take your pick.

Well teams have been near on on the same transport (plane) as the producers before.  Usually when either a team is way a head or way behind.

If that was the first part of a leg, then I would asume the CHa's were the last tieam and they went to Hong Kong airport on the same Ferry.

If it was the end of a leg, then I would assume it that the Cha's were way out in front and Phil was rushing to beat tehm to the mat.

I have no idea about down time, if Phil ever spends anytime with the racers, but if it an extended Pit Stop it could be just the extra down time were both producers and teams would be abe to go out and have some fun.  And we know that even during this time teams have both camera and sound guys recording them.

Earlier in the week I read an interview of Uchenna & Joyce and one of them said they were with the Producers till the end of the race.  They were "in sequester" with them.  Maybe D/o were being moved with production since production goes where the racers go.

Sorry, I don't remember were I read the interview.  It may have been here or on the 1st pg of TAR Spoilers at Jokers.  I don't have time to look for it now.  I've spent the morning reading several pages of messages to find out if anyone else brought this up about "sequester" with producers.  When I got to the last page of this thread I realized no one else had brought this up.

And it is a kind of sequester in that the teams stay with the race in order to be decoy teams later on. I will say that from everything I had read before, I had only heard of the fourth team out staying on for decoy--does anyone else remember them using the 5th team out as well?

ditto, I think they look like the pictures peach posted of the KL airport elevators  :tup:, then the taxi's in the daylight are HK so unless its some weird editing C/M & the BQ's arrive on the same flight to HK.

Post by: michael on April 13, 2007, 03:19:54 PM
Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too puddin..

and if this episode is a NEL, then E/D "we're not out yet..if we don't win we want the chas to" confessional can be referring to the fact that E/D and D/O got on a later flight and one of them is third, and the other was non-eliminated.
Title: Re: EP10: "We Are Trying To Make Love, Not War."
Post by: puddin on April 13, 2007, 04:26:55 PM
^^ But D/O & The BQ's were spotted in HK together according to apskips spoiler so it just maybe all teams had the same flight or there was some hours of operation in HK that bunched the teams up? or its just some other scenario that puts the BQ's with the Cha's.

apskip posted  at Twop's on Dec 12, 2006:

HONG KONG NEXT SIGHTING
I have received information that Oswald and Danny and Dustin and Kandice have been spotted in Hong Kong. There was no mention of any other teams.

:umn: Curses foiled again  :lol: What are the odds though? apskips had no further details? So the same person saw the Cha's & BQ's at 2 different locations? OR a friend of a friend , 2 different people saw the BQ's somewhere in HK and the Cha's somewhere in HK? OR they were together? time will tell..2 days! YAY!!
Title: Re: EP10: "We Are Trying To Make Love, Not War."
Post by: mswood on April 13, 2007, 04:38:47 PM
Yeah, it is very possible with the limited spoilers we have to say whether teams arrive together or seperatedly.

We also don't know at what stage of the race the two teams were spotted.

Look at last episode at one point teams were seperated by about 2 and a half hours which would make it seem like all teams are spread apart.

But in that same leg teams are probably all within 30 minutes of another.

So, there are a lot of things that can happen in a leg.

And where the hell is Phil's preview!

OK, already, enough on elevators and who is on what flight to HK.  What do we know about what really goes on action-wise?

Tasks?

ROADBLOCK?
       Kick the door down!
             Charla (damn she actually kicked the door in!)
             Dustin (she actually kicked the door off the hinges)
       Looks like two different doors; Both hold flashlights but Dustin has an orange thingamabob in her hand.

DETOUR?
        Kung Fu - climb the bamboo wall and battle ninjas

      or Wheelie - ride cowboy ride

What else do we know?

Not much

Pit stop - on a Junk in the harbour?

Post by: asamber1 on April 13, 2007, 06:23:30 PM
I just want to say In AR2 the pit stop was on a junk in Hong Kong Harbor, so is it possible this is what Phil was talking about and the long wait for Mary and Peach?
Title: Re: EP10: "We Are Trying To Make Love, Not War."
Post by: georgiapeach on April 13, 2007, 06:28:47 PM
G-Man--

Agreeing with asaamber1 here...

The episode 7 Pitstop of Season 2 ended with Mary and Peach being eliminated, and I think that was what Phil was referring to. From post race accounts, apparently that was a pretty unpleasant pitstop. More info  here  (http://www.cbs.com/primetime/amazing_race2/show/episode07/story.shtml).

O K, no junky pitstop in the harbour.  Then where oh where do we get told that it is a Non Elimination Leg by Phil?

Post by: georgiapeach on April 13, 2007, 09:09:59 PM
Phil doesn't tell us...

We know that there are 4 teams left until the elim of D/O in Guam.

We are therefore asking (since we have Hong kong and Macao to go still) whether this will be a TBC or a NEL this week, with varied opinions among the Detectives.

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR11/ep10/00274-9-2007.jpg)

Just find this place on this page http://www.pbasehk.com/Macy/Macy2232/DSC00505 , note that the phone number matches! This restaurant is at 120 ,NGA TSIN WAI ROAD, Kowloon City, you can find the exact location from http://www.ypmap.com/en/viewer.asp?mapService=LocationMap

I know this is just some random photo, but since this place is also near Kai Tak where Neobie suggests for the location of the car thing, it is highly possible that the place of that task is at Kai Tak.

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR11/ep10/00304-9-2007.jpg)[IMG]

haha, I also find this place from here http://hk.yp.yahoo.com/cobrand/listing.html?c=714&b=540&r=0&d=0 , the name of that shop is #543, and it is at the same street as that restaurant, in fact just next to it: 122 Nga Tsin Wai Rd, Kowloon City!  :happy:

Charla/Mirna look like they're running down the ramp to the bus terminal, could they have found something that connects faster by bus? (The Airport Express may be too expensive for some teams: Oswald/Danny if they don't give out too much cash this leg.)

That's a good idea neobie. They have been pretty generous with the money this season --since we saw Rob say they couldn't ask for $$ I guess.  But D/O are going to be less well off than the others since Danny took the easy way out at the paper task.

Hmmm....

We aren't sure when those taxis are Michael...

Based on D/K hair I think I was able to decide...YES I TOOK MATTERS INTO MY OWN HANDS AND DECIDED FOR SURE! ... (just kidding) that it is from Hong Kong, because both D/K have the same hair that they are seen with when they are coming down/going up the bamboo wall, and when Kandice is kicking the door in.

Regarding the time and cost, it really depends on the where is the first location after arrival.
If their first stop is anywhere in Hong Kong Island, Airport Express (+ MTR) is a better (faster and cheaper) choice.
Otherwise, they should go for taxi, before changing between Airport Express + MTR line may get them lose time (maybe even lost).

However, do they know the advantages with the Airport Express/MTR??

Cha3 and Eric/Danelle should know this. (HK leg in TAR2/HK Trip as TAR9 Price)
Charla/Mirna and BQ, maybe not.

Both the BQ (Dustin or Kandice) and Charla are attaching the blue door in a short promo seen during CSI Thursday night (at the 48 minute mark).

What terrible food challenge?  We already had  eat the sausage or die bit this time.  Never knew that TAR would have Two terrible food challenges in one series.

I'm still curious about the Eric climbing the bamboo shot. The sky looks considerably different then what we see in all of the shots of C/M, D/O, and D/K. I hate when I get this confused about an episode!

I bet you it's all just the way that promo was put together and all the teams are there at around *somewhat* of the same time. I also wonder how the teams (probably E/D, C/M) are going to try and get D/K out of the race.

There's a lot to look forward to.

I'm feeling the BQs coming in first (well, to the TBC mat/clue box)!!

I've made some nicely labeled pictures for you guys!

I'm wondering if Charla's short legs are going to slow them down in the bamboo climb.

That's why it would be so nice to know which task is first Roadblock or Detour? But unfortunately, we won't be getting any sun shots in those kicking down the door shots since it is all inside.

STILL no promo??

At some point E/D are going to need to come out from the back of the pack--which makes me wonder if they use a FF in the next few episodes--or just run really well at the end?

If they win peach  :crazy

no but I agree. I have a feeling that what ever leg their confessional about them saying "we're still in it" is from they will come close to last, and after that maybe pick it up? Or they could be like the Linz family and only win the important leg. Or they might not win at all. Or they can win every leg from now until the end! So many possibilities...so little time left to speculate....4 weeks  :(

It goes "OK, we're not out of this yet...if anybody has to win besides us.." it airs 25 minutes into the episode..

You can tell by the tone that Eric was saying it in that it wasn't actually part of the situation...it's right when E/D see D/O after the yield is up, and they try to make it look like Eric is saying we aren't out of this yet because D/O are there...but I'm pretty sure it's from the confessional...you can tell by the tone!

Thought I would do a quick recap of what we do and don't know--please feel free to chime in here!

We know:

Probable flights: (from apskip)
Quote
FLIGHTS TO HONG KONG
Teams arrived at the Kuala Lumpur pitstop between about 2pm and 5pm on Dec. 10. I assume that they will be released 12 hours later and have the chioce of the earliest flights from KL to HK:

CI654 departs KUL 0750 arrives HKG 1155
MH72 departs KUL 0915 arrives HKG 1300
CX720 departs KUL 0935 arrives HKG 1330

There is also a CX flight at 1755 and a MH flight at 1845 if it happens to be a 24 hour extended pitstop. Each takes about 3 3/4 hours.


There is a screencap for the "Central" area in front of the Ritz.

There is a clip of the HK Cultural center near the Star Ferry (more info  here  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,8579.msg175502.html#msg175502).)
    spec: these could be locations for clue boxes, or general shots of locations, or even Mat locations.

D/O are seen walking  here  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,11872.msg183402.html#msg183402)
     spec: Looking for a clue?

We know that the car stunt drive task (almost certainly Detour, slim possibility of FF) was filmed at the old Kai Tek airport runway. (info starts  here  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=11872.msg183215#msg183215)).

We now also know that the bamboo climbing challenge (Detour) takes place at the former Cheung Sha Wan Police Quarters.  more info starts here  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,11872.msg183624.html#msg183624)

We know that Charla and Kandice are kicking down doors and carrying symbol-looking cutouts. (Roadblock)

School location (cluebox?) reported by sun7kid is still a little unclear as to exactly where that might be.


from annielhy:


Just make it straight:
Hong Kong consist of 3 parts: Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, New Territories.
All outer islands including Lantau are consider as  New Territories. (New Airport is in Lantau)

(http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/5/57/Hk-map.png)

CAR is in Hong Kong old Kai Tak airport ("Kowloon City", Kowloon)
Bamboo is  Shau Kei Wan ("Shau Kei Wan", Hong Kong Island) Cheung Sha Wan, Kowloon

With the place we have mentions:
Hong Kong Island: Statue Square (Central), Shau Kei Wan, Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Pier (Sheung Wan)
Kowloon: Cultural Centre (Tsim Sha Tsui), Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal (Tsim Sha Tsui), old Kai Tak airport (Kowloon City)
New Territories: New Airport (Chek Lap Kok)

Order of the Detours vs Roadblock--which is first?  Chateau  --we need you please  here  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,11872.msg183745.html#msg183745)and  here  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,11872.msg183063.html#msg183063) when you have time  :kissy: to figure out 1) who is leading at the bamboo climbing detour and 2) which Detour might be first--car or bamboo (affects how the teams get from place to place)

Where the Roadblock is--and what exactly they are doing.

Who is leading, and the order of finish. (I know we all have our favorites, but IIRC, we have no proof of who is in what order, right?)

Where is the Pitstop--and is it a Pitstop? or a TBC vs NEL?

I wised up and started recording from my bathroom VCR, its the only room in my house with decent cable.
Picture me climbing up on my toilet then onto my sink to reach the shelf  :lol3:! and you all think Charla is short.

This shot was taken here (you already knew that) between 11:35 am and 12:07 pm (assumes December 11,12,13 ish).  What is the date anyway?

It must have been largely overcast.  Not much shadows in this clip.  I used the sun's reflection off a distant building (some kind of transportation center) since it is the only bright thing back there.  Angle of incidence equals angle of reflection.  The solar altitude angle of around 45 degrees from the highest sandbag is consistent with this time.

Here is the GE location.

Opps, I just noticed that I drew the Sun's arrow at the wrong angle.  I error is in the drawing not the time based on azimuth.  The correct arrow would be pointing right to left by the same amount that this one points left to right.  It is supposed to make an angle of 27.5 deg wrt the face of the long building.

Teams arrived at the Kuala Lumpur pitstop between about 2pm and 5pm on Dec. 10.  Therefore assuming depart KL on Dec 11 if it is a 12 hour pitstop.

Tasks HK 11-12? ( Filming shot dated 12/12.) And Macao 13th? known to be on ferry Macao to HK (presumably on the way to the airport) on Dec 14th AM.

WEATHER:
On the weather in Hong Kong, if it helps any: there was a miserable drizzle for three days, three days of rain in a month otherwise free from any precipitation! Poor racers...

Temperatures varied wildly those few days, going up as high as the 26C range and as low as 12C in a single day, if I remember correctly.


from neobie upstream--those temps are 53-79 F

Hmmm....

apskip's flights (see above) have them arriving 1155 to 1330--so they may not be able to make it to the airport by Chateau's times that first day--making us think another 24 hour pitstop would be possible in KL??, which puts them there on the 12th to match the filming shot....or they have a run around and kill time day on the 11th with HofOp and start tasks on the 12th...hmmm...

Thanks Peach, Puddin et al.

Has anybody identified the Chinese symbol that Kandice is carrying?

No luck in the time-of-day for the shot of Charla & Mirna going down the bus ramp at the Hong Kong airport.  From the orientation I see on GE it looks like they are headed northwest.  The glass is on the south side of the building.  But anyway, no useful shadows in the shot.

Is Mr. Cheung's camera date-stamp set correctly? I think so. Also, he uses d-beta, so he's at a fixed location (I'd guess the pitstop. Because of the rigging I considered the old police hq, but it looks like there's a tree in the background). They probably use the WRP crew for the steadicam shots anyway. Can anybody read the letters on the umbrella?

No dice--but latest thought from someone upstream (sorry--I've lost that post) is that the Roadblock possibly could consist of having to kick down several doors and collect some of those and then do we know not what-- (all spec of course but sounds good!) and we have NO idea where that task is taking place...

Did you find the bamboo climbing shots too?  :gman:

No leads on the umbrella, just advertising for a local pharmacy chain...

The lack of buildings in the background makes me think it's either on the coast or on a rooftop. (Come on, there are high-rises EVERYWHERE in Hong Kong.) To my knowledge, rooftops in Hong Kong make use mostly of parapets, not railings or fences. So... on the harbour somewhere? Kai Tak?

Plus... After rotating, shearing and flipping, 'fook' for 'fortune'?

This shot was taken here (and you knew that too!) between 7:45 and 8:15 am (assumes December 12th)

There is a give-away shadow on the cylindrical hut on the top of the building in the background.  The line that separates dark on the left from bright on the right defines a plane that includes the axis of the cylinder.  The perpendicular to that plane points to solar azimuth.  The bright "stars" were added by the editors.

The sun has been mostly clouded out so I think it is later than E&D's climb.

I ball-parked a solar altitude of 25 deg using the general luminance of Kandice's butt.  It's a rather uncertain call, I just wish I had a better view.   :angel:

I think that is Eric!

Based on the BQ and ED timestamp my guess is that this is going to be one of the first "close" races that we've had since Maputo, Mozambique. Every other episode there seems to have been one team either really far ahead, or really far behind.

Opps!  I was fooled by the colors?  I don't know.

The Charla & Mirna shots look a little later than the BQs.  Call it 10 ish.  I really don't know how to judge the shadows when it's overcast.  All you have to look at is general patterns of brightness.  And then you have to ask if it is brighter than other stuff just because it is more out in the open.  Then they have these stupid stars going around   (:;)

Post by: makz3d on April 15, 2007, 04:48:38 AM
what about the partly cloudy parts?  :lol:

I don't think the pictures will quote.  I'm referring to Puddin's reply # 320 of this thread.  In particular the first picture.

Check the left side of the picture and note the scaffolding and the green & white umbrella.  Now look at the picture from:  http://www.mandy.com/home.cfm?c=vid307 (http://www.mandy.com/home.cfm?c=vid307)

The 2nd and 3rd pictures are from HK.  It appears TAR hired field shooting equipment for the old airport.  IF, the 2nd picture is TARAS then check out http://www.movcam.com/en-Gallery-1.htm (http://www.movcam.com/en-Gallery-1.htm) and there are a few more HK pictures in the Movcam Gallery.  Maybe there's a shadow.  The camera man is wearing something around his neck that is on an orange strap that is in the HK pictures but not in the TAR picture.

So we know the van roll-over is on the 12th of Dec.

I would think this type of camera rental is quite expensive and they can't be kept around all day waiting for teams to show up.

IMO:  Danny's reaction in the "office" is when they find out what the FF is.  The female at the window in the "office" may not be a "local".  O/D are the only one's shown around "Kiss my Kids" looking for something (the "office" to find out what the FF is????)  O/D are the only ones shown at the roll-over.  The cameras needed in the car and on the scaffolding would not be cheap.  I think TAR paid a 1 time fee for a Fast Forward.

I have this FF stuck on the brain and can't shake it.  I know that D/O and D/K were seen in HK (together?).  I have a 50/50 chance I'm right.  Although I feel for sure I'm wrong.

I also think that D/K at the school is because they are lost.  D/K are known to have direction problems in the past.

Hello Mr. Cheng, I don't have an answer to your question and can't speak for the administrators here but I'm sure that if you disapprove of the use of your likeness the moderator or administrator will remove it. Thanks for your offer to help us with the clues. The posters (detectives) at this website enjoy looking for clues about the race and get great satisfaction when their guesses turn out to be what actually takes place. If you participated in putting this episode together let me thank you and I'm sure that we are going to enjoy the work you did for The Amazing Race.

Thank You.

Assumptions:

Looks like teams must have a 24 hour pit stop, otherwise Chateau's times don't work.

If the DETOUR consists of (1) Climb or (2) Roll then we have
         (1) Climbers:  E/D 7:45AM to 8:15AM
                             D/K 8:30AM to 9:30AM
                             C/M 10:00ish

and (2)  Rollers:        D/O 11:35AM to 12:07PM

So it looks like E/D  may have an early 4 hour lead over D/O

The ROADBLOCK is kick the damn door down!

                       Kandice is holding a Chinese thing a ma bob  together with a red Roadbllock clue in her left hand
                       Charla has only a flashlight, so that looks like Kandice at that point is ahead of Charla
                       There is a quick scene of D/O in a hallway; O has a red clue in hand taps Danny with it, so Danny must be doing the Roadblock.

                        No sign of E/D

Perhaps ROADBLOCK has something to do with collecting Chinese sympbols, and then putting them together which would spell out where the PIT STOP IS.

Its a rainy Sunday morning so this is probably all wet stuff.

Well it depends, you can have rain and sun at the same time, you don't have to have full cloud cover (as longas teh clouds part for where the sun is positioned it wouldn't event shadows and you could still have rain literally falling down on you)..

Or it could be running off and on all day with partial cloud cover.

in one of the pictures from the web promo we see C/M and E/D standing beside a ticket agent, and I'm pretty sure we see D/K bag. Since D/O are so far behind at the detour maybe D/O miss the flight, and the three other teams get on?

Either way...we will know tonight :jumpy:

Damn G-Man all this time I thought the climb was the roadblock.  I can be an idiot, sometimes.

I was wondering why people thought Oswald & Danny were so late, I thought they did a detour and thus we have no idea when they started teh roadblock).  That really ruins my timeline for the teams.

Hey, I am the Camera Operator in the picture you guys posted. My name is Julian Cheng, not "Mr. Cheung"
But why you guys no need to request my approval before posting my picture on the web?
If you all guys have any problem, just ask me directly. I will reply you, no need to guess anything....

Peach the Fast Forward should be a none issue (and not even for our beliefs), but if David & Mary talked corrrectly about it in season ten.  Then since D & O did use the Fast Forward and benefited from it, they shouldn't be able to use it solely. 

Now another team might, but that would mean teams do one of the tasks and decide to quit and go back and try for the Fast Forward.

Really besides of course the final placement order I think the biggest mystery is what type ofleg are we in.

If my luck holds and Eric & Danielle get in first, it will of course be a TBC leg.

Well if spoilers hold, most likely the team in the Final three with teh best placement average will come in 2cd (which is or was a curse until last year when Tyler & James broke it).

About the sunshine making shadows in the shot of Eric on the bamboo, I think we got lucky.  Because in most of the other shots there are no good shadows, only fuzzy general illuminance directions.  You really can see the good shadows in the Eric shot.  Look at those shadows from each rung of bamboo.  The way the horizontal shadows are spaced about the same as the horizontal rungs of bamboo tells you that the sun is shining very close to horizontal.  That means early in the morning.  On cloudy days, sometimes I see sunshine seeking in under the clouds while the sun is still low.  Then as it rises it goes behind the clouds.  This can happen when the cloud cover is regionally patchy.

I think the times are still consistent with a 12 hour pit stop.  Standard procedures puts them in play at about midnight to 4 am on the morning of December 11th.  Then they get to Hong Kong noon to mid afternoon on the 11th.  They do some task or find something.  Then  have to wait for hours of operation in the morning of the 12th?

My wish is that instead of having seperate legs for Hong Kong, Macau, Guam and the Final leg.

I would much rather have either the Hong Kong and Macau being one leg, or the Macau Guam being one leg.

So that we can have a non elimination tonight.
Then then the next episode an elimination.

Then have the twist be that the TBC leg is the final two, after all for most seasons we do have just the three teams going for two legs.

And since the new penalty would be meaningless on the leg before the final leg, the TBC would work perfect.

Your 2nd and 3rd pics with the BQ's in pink and the one with E/D in a living room are without a doubt for sure at the Carcosa in KL--I have tons of pics from there.

But the solo Eric one I believe to be from somewhere else--either HK or Macao?? I can't match the room in that pic to the Carcosa at all.

I think UJ being eliminated rather than being non eliminated screwed them up and this was going to be a TBC to Macao and now it will be changed to a Non Elimination becuase.... ifs it is a TBC it will end in Macao as a Non Elimination and they have never done that, its kind of stupid. It could be still be a TBC but i think everything was moved back with UJ being eliminated early!

Withthe possability of Macau being an TBC leg to Guam, we wouldn't have any confessional there.  It would also explainwhy Phil might be on the same ferry as a team if they were the last to get the clu eto keep going.

And Eric/Dees conf looks like night so if the tasks in HK start early whether Hours of operation whatever .. 8am or so Detour, then assuming the RB comes later there is still plenty of daylight how long could it take? Theres still that chance that they get an envelope to keep racing? I guess we'll know SOON  !!
 
Actual Time:
Rise:  6:55 AM CST

Chateau--thank you for another great job!

But one concern--(two really)

Is there ANY possibility that the low angle of sun in Eric's shot could be late afternoon instead of early morning??

And would it matter if the shots you were using had been "flipped"??

It is possible that all of the teams are climbing on the other arm of the "U"--but this shot would also make sense if it had been flipped. Would that screw up your time shots? ???

Phil isn't always there to hand them the clue to keep racing, they have used the internet in the past but say for instance Season9, Russia, Phil was there to hand of over the clue to keep racing so who the heck knows ..at least we have some surprises this leg  :jumpy:
Another thing ..if the teams leave the night of the 11th from KL to HK, then why is Phil still in KL on the 12th just leaving for HK? or I assume so.

Just Spec by me.
Also everything seemed to be rushed this leg, the FF [dont we know there was one not taken in Zanzibar] was newly added. The Nomes[sp] were out of place with a team winning the FF, so i dont know this leg seemed strange to me.


That FF Rules needs to be changed!
Title: Re: EP10: "We Are Trying To Make Love, Not War."
Post by: gingerman28 on April 15, 2007, 08:16:18 PM
Bummer for bad information.

Re-checked ep 8.  Phil introduced Fast Forward but does not mention how many are in the race, nor that a team can only use a FF once!  Danny and Oswald teamed with Uchenna and Joyce used the FF in Krakow.

UNLESS, AT THE START OF THE NEXT LEG PHIL SAYS SOMETHING LIKE "IT HAS COME TO OUR ATTENTION THAT YOU, DANNY AND OSWALD USED THE FAST FORWARD IN HONG KONG.  BUT SINCE A TEAM IS ONLY ALLOWED TO USE IT ONCE YOU MUST GO TO BACK OF THE PACK AND YOU ARE NOW MARKED FOR ELIMINTION NOT ERIC AND DANIELLE.

If my memory is correct something like this has happened in an earlier TAR where the next ep started off with a sit down talk by Phil and two teams on some rule infraction which affected the outcome of that leg.  Will go back and check my files tomorrow.

It's possible, but we will have to wait until next week.

Times for the Kung Fu bamboo climb were way off.  Eric and Danielle did not arrive there until just before sundown.  The glares we saw behind the various climbers were large Klieg light used to light the scene and were not sun reflections.  The teams arrived in Hong Kong at 1:10 and 3:30 (o.k. D/O did arrive earlier at 11:55 so there time on the roll over was more nearly correct.)  The FF was no problem at all; what could the team do?  cry out to let them out before the run was over? All they had to do was sit there and let the driver do all the work.  Not like Joyce who had to shave her head!

Yield ahead;  The BQ's can't use it; unless they change the rules again.

Arrival times at the pit in KL were between 12:28P and 2:19P, not between 2 and 5.  So teams had plenty of time to make the flights that were predicted to  be used from KL to HK.

A lot of fenegalling on getting onto those flights.  And for the first time you were shown that four passports were in hand and four boarding passes were being printed up.  And I like the fact that it is made to look like the agent is using only first names; lordy be that's a new one, it is always last names as a means of identification.

So the rung shadows I was looking at were caused by artificial lighting!    :groan:

I should have watched the video.  I just used the stills.  Maybe it would have been more clear what the arrangement was.  A little voice was telling me that those projections looked too horizontal, as in not possible by the sun.  I had convinced myself that is was sunlight thanks to the shadow on the roof thing.  That was probably just a light too.

Chateau, I think that Phil says something about a Kung Fu movie is being shot at the location.  Thus all the Klieg lights or Solar spots which can dublicate the strength of sunlight.  But you did nail the rollover pretty close and it was a cloudy day.

Someone at TWoP is suggesting that KL could have been a 36 hour Pitstop since the flight that D/O got on doesn't go on Mondays (12/11) which would explain why we can't figure out what they would have done on the 11th.

Thank you so much Mr. Cheng for forgiving us!   :thankyou:

That was an amazing film segment--can you tell us anything about what it took technically to capture that since it clearly was a "one shot deal"? (I don't think Danny and Oswald would have wanted to do it again!) Very  :gj:

And did you get to meet them--we think they are pretty awesome around here!

And you are very gracious to come back here--we really appreciate it and are very pleased to  :welcome2: you here!

The  Roadblock also turned out to be in an  abandoned Police Quarters  (http://www.fso-tela.gov.hk/accessibility/eng/locations_details.cfm?Photo_Num=01038) which turned out to be in Kennedy Town.

From the Film Services Office:

Quote
Former Kennedy Town Police Quarters
- 14-18 Ka Wai Man Road, Kennedy Town


Characteristics: Former Kennedy Town Police Quarters are made up of 3 blocks. Each block is 12 storeys high but they look a little different in height since they are built at different levels of a slope. There are 2 footbridges connecting Blocks A and B while Block C stands alone. The view of block B is very open with a great sea view while the other blocks benefit from the green surroundings. The place is far from the main road and is very quiet. The outlook looks very much like that of a large-scale hospital.

 


Not a bad idea to rent out your abandoned government buildings for film work--maybe WRP got a two-for-one deal!

Oh, I just watched the Hong Kong clips, haha really amazing me, haha.

We had many cameras there to shot this, (four cameras on the car, one camera underleaf the jumping stage, one one power-pod (me), another three cameras around the field, and the main following camera) of course it is a one shot deal, I also don't think that Danny and Oswald want to try a second take.
I saw them were very worry before the roll-over. They considered for a long time before they get on the stunt car. @_@
Thanks Amazing Race!

Yours,
Julian

Yes, I would think a long time before I did that too! Did they have a lot of people test it out first? I hear that sometimes the host (Phil Keoghan) likes to try everything out himself!

I'll  bet it is fun to see something you have worked on come on TV. Were you allowed to see a preview of your work during editing at all or is this the first time you have seen it? Maybe it will get an Emmy nomination!

    The Stunt Driver, Bruce Law and his company, is the Top in HK, also famous in worldwide. They shot many films before. So They have test the roll-over many many times. But on that day, only one take, they didn't try the roll-over before but they did try the car speed.
    Phil didn't try the roll-over of course, haha.
    I just the first time watch the video via this forum, Thanks for sharing.

How long have you been doing this? Do you travel all over or just stay in Hong Kong? Would you have gone to Macau with them too?

I also want to travel all over, I think it should be more funny.

Oh too bad! It would have been fun for you to go with them to Macau I would think!

Was everyone nice to work with? We talked to someone in Ecuador where they also did some filming and he thought they were good to work with...

I didn't even attempt to get anything right myself here, and would've been completely wrong also.  It's just great to see Chateau back to business.  Thanks!  Also, I'm glad that I can finally come here on a more regular basis, as I'm on a new and faster PC that'll allow me to see everything more effectively without much trouble (thanks to the old system).

What the Hell with Cha3's taxi fee?

Cha3
Airport -> Tsim Sha Tsui (everybody need to)
Tsim Sha Tsui -> Kai Tak
Tunnel Fee for Crossing Harbour

Everyone else
Airport -> Tsim Sha Tsui (everybody need to)
Tsim Sha Tsui -> Cheung Sha Wan
Cheung Sha Wan -> Star Ferry (Tsim Sha Tsui)
4 person x Star Ferry
Central Star Ferry Pier -> old police quarter (the one after Star Ferry)

Except other Taxi Driver seems helping the teams (some goes to Laundary shop with the teams)
The taxi fee may be discounted or even not taking money.
Title: Re: EP10: "We Are Trying To Make Love, Not War."
Post by: mswood on April 16, 2007, 06:23:36 PM
Well they had the taxi find to the airport in the morning.  They had the taxi to the first route marker, then the taxi to the Fast Forward and then the Ferry.  In some cities 88.00 doesn't go far with cabs.  This of course assumes they don't spend anything on food,or water.  Which we do see them with beverages in one cab so they must have gotten something.  And Lynn & Alex in season 7's commentary say that water is a huge expense, for each leg to stay hydrated.

Post by: georgiapeach on April 16, 2007, 08:56:34 PM
I was disappointed to see the teams ONLY use taxis--I really thought this would be a place to be a little challenged and to use the MTR (?) and the Octopus card--it would have been much more entertaining had the teams been told to "make your way to..." using public transportation--but NOT taxis.
Title: Re: EP10: "We Are Trying To Make Love, Not War."
Post by: Slowhatch on April 16, 2007, 09:11:52 PM
The KL taxis I understand; the racers took off past midnight when the trains stop running. But I agree they should have tried the MTR. Fwiw, the fare to the dry cleaners (D/O car) was 261 HK- about 33 USD.

Just for reference, the same company, Bruce Law Stunt Unlimited, also prepared the Kung Fu task on Tonkin street. They might have arranged the door task in Kennedy town as well, but I can't find any caps to prove it.

Post by: georgiapeach on April 17, 2007, 10:42:00 PM
I'm still puzzling about the timeline for this episode.  What happened to Dec. 11th? Thanks to Izad, we know the teams were at the Batu Caves on Dec 10.

Based on all of our info, we had the teams scheduled to arrive in HK the AM of Dec 11. We believed that the pitstop was 12 hours.

But Mr Cheng assures us that the date was 12/12 even though the camera date said 12/11.

Now  someone at TWOP  (http://forums.televisionwithoutpity.com/index.php?showtopic=2766846&st=1995&p=7619828&#entry7619828) suggested that perhaps this was a 36 hour pitstop as the flight that E/D went on doesn't go on Mondays--therefore leaving on the 12th (Tuesday) made perfect sense.

But now we have Mirna going on in the Innertube videos about staying up all night at the Pitstop and being so tired which suggests only a 12 hour Pitstop.

So where is Dec 11th?

Ideas, anyone?

edited to add:
Maybe they stayed up all night talking on the second night of a 36 hour Pitstop in KL--that's the only thing that can make this all fit, IMO.

I have worried about that day forever!

So for us it was the 11th, but KL time it was the 12th??

And racer time??

When do they lose/gain a day coming home??

HOW could I forget the International Date Line? (which way are we going again?? :lol: ??? :lol:)

I was trying to pin down the timing of Mirna's "Yield Queens" comment.  We would have seen that on December 3rd.

Is there an insider video that reveals when the teams got to see TAR10?

It looks like we watched the finale as the racers lounged around in a 36 hour pit stop in KL.  Maybe KL television showed it that evening in KL.  That would have been about 32 hours into their 36-hour pit stop.

Post by: Chateau d If on April 18, 2007, 09:06:07 PM
You know what?

I just realized that up until December 3rd (Maputo) on their race, only the BQs knew that Uchenna & Joyce where the only All Star team with a previous win.  Because up until that date it was still possible that the BQs had won TAR10.

But it seems like everybody already knew  ??? that they didn't win TAR10.

Chateau, I have had confirmation that  they were showing the finale of TAR10 on the night of Dec 11th 2006  in Malaysia (it aired the night of Dec 10th 2006 in the States , which was the morning of Dec 11th  in Malaysia). They apparently get the delayed telecast at night about 12 hours later.

So since the teams probably left about 2AM-ish, guess Ch/M weren't really up ALL night partying!

So we were right in thinking that there was a 36 hour Pitstop in KL all along. Thank goodness we "found" the 11th again! :lol:

Now how will we compensate for the dateline in our calculations as the teams come home?
