12/09 The Amazing Race 12 - Cherry on Top of the Sundae that's Already Melted

*below needs updating, will do so later*

:bar:
Duprovnik, Croatia  on July 19th
Big shout out to Eilan (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12520.msg234474.html#msg234474) for all the Amazing info and photo's throughout this thread (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12520.msg232437.html#msg232437)  :jam:

 
first brought to us by peach (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12521.msg205000.html#msg205000). Picture /Evidence in this thread  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12520.msg232437.html#msg232437)
peach:
*I had previously received (from an extremely reliable source) that Croatia was a very probable TAR 12 location.   
*But based on my information and this information, I believe that there is a very good chance that this IS TAR 12 and not TARA. The dates of this sighting also coincide with the dates I was told.
peach adds  : (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12520.msg232529.html#msg232529)
Okay, I have a bit more info on the teams.
*There were probably 6 to 7 teams seen.
*They came in a group of 3 or so, then one, then the rest.
*There were at least one F/F team. And at least one M/F team who were close in age so could have been boyfriend/girlfriend or brother/sister, etc. That team was in the middle of the pack.

"Vance" from Toronto--  LINK (http://tapeworthy.blogspot.com/2007/08/amazing-race-12-possible-spoiler.html)
*My friend may have just witnessed part of the race for the next season of The Amazing Race 12.
*My friend was in Duprovnik, Croatia on July 19th  and saw groups of two's running followed by a camera.
* then we saw a camera man appear and then the two pple ran back the way they came and cameraman followed..
*it they also saw pple zip cording
*The one couple racing, that my friend remembers, was a dirty blond guy and a girl with dark hair and both were wearing green headbands.

Eilan  @Twop's (http://forums.televisionwithoutpity.com/index.php?s=&showtopic=2666383&view=findpost&p=8599469) :
*We were on holiday this summer and happened to see a leg being filmed. We spent the better part of the afternoon chatting with various crew members, and met and had a brief chat with one of the teams.
*I promised the crew/producers I wouldn't say anything, but I think I can confirm the spoiler from RFF that auntieB linked to above without quite breaking that promise. And the team we met were definitely Americans.

Slowhatch  July 18th
Just one photo (http://www.flickr.com/photos/bleary/1513065156/) in the album; a different part of Dubrovnik, but also a different date.
*The Amazing Race was filming while we were there in Dubrovnik!! We saw some camera men, but no teams.
*We were really excited anyway. We also talked to some people from England who didn't know what the show was, but told us they had seen two couples in row boats being videotaped.
*They weren't sure, but thought one couple (team) seemed to be doing well and the other (who they thought was male-female) was having a lot of difficulty.

Thanks to peach & Eilan, more picture/team evidence here (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12520.msg234077.html#msg234077).

Clues~
*ONE TEAM CONTINUES TO STRUGGLE TO WORK TOGETHER DURING A FRUSTRATING DETOUR IN CROATIA,
* One Team falls apart during a Detour in Croatia that requires precise teamwork
*Two Teams test their rocky relationships on the choppy waters of Croatia with very different results.
*WHILE ANOTHER TEAM MAKES A MISTAKE THAT JEOPARDIZES THEIR FUTURE ON THE RACE, ON "THE AMAZING RACE 12
*while one of the Race's strongest Teams makes a costly mistake that threatens their future
*An oversight threatens major repercussions for an otherwise strong Team.
*It's "the cherry on top of the ice cream sundae that's already melted" according to one Team, when Phil gives them some news at the Pit Stop

Below shows how Chateau d if put the times together  :jam:, again thanks to Eilan, peach, Slowhatch, Chateau and everyone else that helped pull this together!!

(http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/1632/index13hi9.th.jpg) (http://img156.imageshack.us/my.php?image=index13hi9.jpg) Chateau d if:I finally got locations for them:  Very close to the other shots of cluebox and Roadblock.
Note that I added in the placement of the zipline.  The team that was shown on it and then shown in row boats had to have wasted a lot of time getting into the boats.

(http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/6116/index12ys7.th.jpg) (http://img156.imageshack.us/my.php?image=index12ys7.jpg) Chateau d if: It's possible that the zipline could have gone like this. 
This new orientation would explain why the zipline does not show up in the shot of the Goth team doing the Raodblock.

(http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/4636/index9hn1.th.jpg) (http://img156.imageshack.us/my.php?image=index9hn1.jpg)  Chateau d if:Yes, I think that looks like the best place.
One thing that kept me from liking it is that I thought the lines should appear in this shot of the Goth team dong the wall building Roadblock.
But I suppose the lines may have been too high for the frame, or just out of focus.

 (http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/4636/index9hn1.th.jpg) (http://img156.imageshack.us/my.php?image=index9hn1.jpg)Chateau d if: The current best guess of where the zipline goes argues for the PM time due to the sunshine on their backs as they zip down from the old fort.


(http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/7384/index1mt2.th.jpg) (http://img156.imageshack.us/my.php?image=index1mt2.jpg) Chateau d if: Here is where I think the raft was.  South of the City Wall Tower.  This location gives the right sun angles to match the above shot for end-of-day sun.

So would this be the leg in Dubrovnik (Chicken - BF; Bridges - Florence)? If so, then I don't think there's much more we can unearth  :lol: Possibly the eliminated team, but even that's not a large undertaking: based on the reports, I think it's either A/H (boo) or the blondes (yay!)

Seems like a warm climate.  Icecream is big stuff in Italy in the summer.  Could be Croatia if previous program about Bridges refers to Florence.

I think the title's metaphoric in nature. I'm guessing a team has multiple bad things happen to them this leg.

Who says it is anyone's guess It sounds like Ronald or Donald, but could also be Azaria or Hendekea if the sightings are true and they're lagging behind.

The Croatia Leg is our best spoiled leg so far this season with loads of fabulous pictures of the locations and the tasks. It is especially dear to my heart because it provided our very first look at the new teams. So how did it all come to be? Sit back and enjoy...

Long ago and far away (way back in July) I received a tip that a TAR *ahem* "technical person" had just come back from Croatia after his team was eliminated. Without anything else to go on that tip was tucked away until Vance (http://tapeworthy.blogspot.com/2007/08/amazing-race-12-possible-spoiler.html) posted that a "friend" had just seen racers in Dubrovnik on July 19 (Later confirmed as TK/Rachel also).

We had a brief flurry of panic that perhaps this was really TAR Asia 2, but thanks to Eilan at TWoP (http://forums.televisionwithoutpity.com/index.php?showtopic=2666383&st=6180&p=8599469&#entry8599469) we were able to confirm that this was indeed TAR 12.

And then the picture extravaganza began.
We ended up with five different sets of photos (and these photos represent hours and days searching every possible site by primarily puddin and Slowhatch).

The first discovery was puddin's incredible find (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12520.msg232437.html#msg232437) of what we came to call "Trent's Blog". This included not only fabulous pictures giving us our very FIRST look at the season's contestants, but enough narrative that we were able to piece together an outline of what was occurring on the race. We were also able to begin the ID process of identifying the contestants from these photos.

This batch of photos included these:

 

Next came all of the wonderfully detailed recollections of Eilan and the day she spent in Dubrovnik watching the race. (See spoilers below)

She eventually was able to share her photos with (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12520.msg234077.html#msg234077) us as well:


and even eventually added in two videos:

Rachel rappelling:


Online Videos by Veoh.com

Zipline duo:


Online Videos by Veoh.com

Next we had one single cluebox photo with a caption, photo found by Slowhatch:
(http://aycu26.webshots.com/image/35825/2004112500910535032_rs.jpg) (http://allyoucanupload.webshots.com/v/2004112500910535032)

The next find was Slowhatch's incredibly awesome pictures from "the honeymooners"  (http://picasaweb.google.com/kaiser.amanda/HoneymoonCroatiaAndMontenegro) who had some very detailed shots, as well as another set (http://picasaweb.google.com/BrianThomeczek/BrianOnTheAmazingRace) with photos of TK/Rachel in Old Town.



You can find more details in puddin's page one spoiler summary (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12520.msg193237.html#msg193237), and puddin has pulled all of our photos as a master list for your viewing pleasure as well!

I'm with zack on this, it has nothing to do with icecream its just a phrase as in not a good thing, that things are going from bad to worse to top it off.

Seems like a warm climate.  Icecream is big stuff in Italy in the summer.  Could be Croatia if previous program about Bridges refers to Florence.

I think the title's metaphoric in nature. I'm guessing a team has multiple bad things happen to them this leg.

I agree, I think it is just a comment, like just when you think things can't get any worse... you have a bus coming right at you.  :lol3:

The first thing that came to mind was something good happening after being eliminated.  At first i thought engagement and then i was like no!  but then i thought maybe its one of those things like "bring the the gnome to the pit stop" and maybe the eliminated team actually gets the prize.   I dont know thats just what came to mind when i read the title.

Sounds interesting; until more screen caps come along.  But it would make sense to lose the leg but win the special prize attached to something being brought to the pit stop.

I say TK/Rachel say the title. Back before we knew the teams, peach posted this...

How was Team GHB doing at that point?

     **they had been in first place the day before, then missed their flight connection by 5 minutes.
     **Their cab driver took them to Cluebox # 2 location first by mistake, making them even later.
     **They were now somewhere in the middle, but closer to the last group of teams than the first, and probably did not  know the other group was that close behind 
         them.


Just when things can't get any worse (missing a conecting flight by 5 mins), they do (cab driver makes a mistake). Sounds like the title to me.

Something I just thought of:

If this is Croatia, then perhaps the blondes took a FF that leg? It would explain how they weren't seen in any of the pictures.

Flight configuration could be (based on the times estimated in the spoiler thread):
1st - Kynt/Vyxsin, Shana/Jennifer, Ron/Christina
2nd - TK/Rachel
3rd - Nicholas/Donald, Azaria/Hendekea

Though I have a feeling that the FF for this leg might be in Lithuania before flights out to Croatia; perhaps TK/Rachel attempt the FF, lose out to Shana/Jen, and barely miss the first flight out. I could also include Az/Hend - their edit is setting them up for a fall, and with the estimated times in the other thread for them, they would have to hit a major setback in the previous leg and/or make a failed attempt for the FF.

very well done so if Leg 4 was Burkina Faso they leave BF in Leg 5 Heading to Florence, Italy and then Croatia or Lithuania it is very possible for the title to be said by T.K, they probably will end up 5th or 6th!!

We also talked to some people from England who didn't know what the show was, but told us they had seen two couples in row boats being videotaped. They weren't sure, but thought one couple (team) seemed to be doing well and the other (who they thought was male-female) was having a lot of difficulty.

What puddin is referring to is my very first tip that led us to Croatia this season. I was given a head's up that a TAR "technical Person" had just returned home from Croatia after being released early because "his team had been eliminated".  So we are thinking that this may not be a TBC this week. But then you read a comment like that and you start to wonder all over again!!  :pull

so are Nate and Jen in the bunch of racers at the front or the bunch at the back.

thinking so but hoping not (the only team without photo proof...)

I'm with you Puddin for a TBC in India,a long train ride.

also instead of counting sheep last night I was doing the math on episodes

6 teams left, need to get down to 3 for final (surmising)
3 NEL's 6 episodes left

last episode = NEL

so in the next 5 episodes we will need to fit 2 NEL's and if going from Peach's evidence Croatia isn't one.

Leaving the next 4 episodes to have the 2 NEL's, India must be one 

(at that point my plan worked and I fell asleep :cmas27)

I'm thinking that the TBC does fit nicely into our Dubrovnik spoiler info. 

It would be easy for the race to continue onto Split, Croatia. 

We've got 'sourced' picture of the place, so why not?
Title: Re: EP6: "Cherry on Top of the Sundae that's Already Melted"
Post by: georgiapeach on December 03, 2007, 12:19:03 PM
That info is not foolproof by any means. The person could have been with the Blondes, then gone on to help with something else in Dubrovnik and then not been needed after that. Plus this is info heard at a remove (as in it was told to me not heard directly by me) so there is always room for misquoting.

But take it with a grain of salt and throw it in the mix is all!

I do think the way they frame that comment is suggestive of a TBC...and the sourced photos have been right on before...BUT!

Do we really have time for a NEW leg?? Let's count it out:

11 Episodes: 2 TBC's:

EP 1 LA to Ireland  start 11 teams, end 10
Ep 2 Ireland to Amsterdam start 10, end 9
EP 3 Amsterdam to Ouagadougou start 9, end 8
EP 4 Ouag to Ouag  start 8, end 7
Ep 5 Ouagadougou to Lithuania start 7, end 6
EP 6 Lithuania to Croatia start 6, end 5  OR
EP 6 Lithuania to Croatia start 6--TBC--end 6
EP 7 Croatia to Florence start 5, end 4 OR
EP 7 Croatia to Croatia (Split) start 6, end 5  
EP 8 Florence to India start 4 almost certain TBC, end 4 (TBC could also be in Florence instead of course) OR
Ep 8 Split to Florence start 5, end 4
EP 9 India to Osaka start 4 end 3 OR
EP 9 Florence to India start 4 end 3
EP 10 Osaka to Taiwan start 3 TBC end 3 OR
Ep 10 India to Osaka start 3 end 3?? oops doesn't work! See--you have used one TBC and need another in Taiwan and that is how many we were told we would have..so doesn't seem to work...You would also need 12 episodes to play it out OR we would have to skip India entirely which would seem unlikely given the initial Vidcaps)
EP 11 Taiwan to Alaska FINALE start 3, end 1  and all the numbers match!

So it works in my happy place anyway :lol: --where could have I gone wrong?

Post by: retard boi on December 03, 2007, 02:02:11 PM
I think that it's the sibling because TK&Rachel screw up half the thing that they do so it's nothing special if it's them.
anyway we know that the siblings are lagging behind so they must f*cked something up.

I think that this will be an elimination round and the next two rounds will be TBC. if it does I really hope that the siblings will be eliminated and not grandpa.

I guess you're right puddin -- A/H can easily make up time..... hopefully knocking out nate and jen =/

Chateau, when you find the time could you look into what time you think Rachel is doing the Roadblock?
I say its after the Detours because TK now has his pants cuffed from wading through the water at the base of Fort Bokar and then climb the rope at the gate etc.

(http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/misc/th_img_0147.jpg) (http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/misc/img_0147.jpg)  (http://img149.imageshack.us/img149/4195/tkmaybe1oz0.th.jpg) (http://img149.imageshack.us/my.php?image=tkmaybe1oz0.jpg)

This is a tough one.  The shadow seems kind of close to the wall (that TK is leaning against).  I know from their other shadows that they were there around 4:30 to 5:30.  But to call the time of the shot as 4:30 is on the edge of hard-to-believe.  I will have to do a cosine correction to sort it out.  And... I can't do that right now.   It will have to wait until the w/e.

Sorry.

Post by: Chateau d If on December 03, 2007, 03:34:33 PM
Well, we don't really know it's Rachel.

And the Roadblock has to come first because the blogger said they were spying on the cluebox continuously until the Ron & Christina ran up to it.  And the clue from that box is red.  So that's when they do the Roadblock.  The Detour sends then off to the other side of the city (rowboat).  They're not coming back to do the Roadblock. 

Rolled up cuffs:  the walking shot was taken before they did either Detour or Roadblock.  I can't tell if the dude agaist the wall has rolled up cuffs or not.  I don't even know if it is TK.

I'll get the time of the shot in a few days.  Sorry again.

Only 11 Legs but they are doing 2 TBC?

That's only 9 Pitstops though...With only 3 real Pitstops before the Final Leg I don't know how they can fit in: 2 FF, 2 Yields (?), 1 U-Turn, 1-2 Speed Bumps.
Title: Re: EP6: "Cherry on Top of the Sundae that's Already Melted"
Post by: michael on December 03, 2007, 07:38:48 PM
We don't know if there are yields or FFs anymore do we? If there IS going to be a FF i would guess Croatia as one of the places for it ... but with the addition of the preview we see all teams doing the tasks.

That info is not foolproof by any means. The person could have been with the Blondes, then gone on to help with something else in Dubrovnik and then not been needed after that. Plus this is info heard at a remove (as in it was told to me not heard directly by me) so there is always room for misquoting.

But take it with a grain of salt and throw it in the mix is all!



I believe I was told once that the camera crews are changed after every leg of the race so that no production team gets to be too familiar or buddy-buddy with any one team.

Post by: Chateau d If on December 04, 2007, 12:46:48 AM
Okay, I have no doubts now.  This shot from Eilan really is TK & Rachel at the Roadblock.  With the high resolution available and now knowing how the they look in various conditions and activities I am convinced.

I have also resolved the timing of the shot.  Earlier I was confused by the building's shadow line in front of TK.  It turnsout there is a broad set of three steps in front of the little church.  Those steps are hiding some of the shadow.  I found a better shadow line to  use for this shot.  It is cast by the clue box.

This shot was taken between 4:41 and 5:03 pm (assumes July 19th).

I do think the way they frame that comment is suggestive of a TBC...and the sourced photos have been right on before...BUT!

Do we really have time for a NEW leg?? Let's count it out:

11 Episodes: 2 TBC's:

EP 1 LA to Ireland  start 11 teams, end 10
Ep 2 Ireland to Amsterdam start 10, end 9
EP 3 Amsterdam to Ouagadougou start 9, end 8
EP 4 Ouag to Ouag  start 8, end 7
Ep 5 Ouagadougou to Lithuania start 7, end 6
EP 6 Lithuania to Croatia start 6, end 5  OR
EP 6 Lithuania to Croatia start 6--TBC--end 6
EP 7 Croatia to Florence start 5, end 4 OR
EP 7 Croatia to Croatia (Split) start 6, end 5  
EP 8 Florence to India start 4 almost certain TBC, end 4 (TBC could also be in Florence instead of course) OR
Ep 8 Split to Florence start 5, end 4
EP 9 India to Osaka start 4 end 3 OR
EP 9 Florence to India start 4 end 3
EP 10 Osaka to Taiwan start 3 TBC end 3 OR
Ep 10 India to Osaka start 3 end 3?? oops doesn't work! See--you have used one TBC and need another in Taiwan and that is how many we were told we would have..so doesn't seem to work...You would also need 12 episodes to play it out OR we would have to skip India entirely which would seem unlikely given the initial Vidcaps)
EP 11 Taiwan to Alaska FINALE start 3, end 1  and all the numbers match!

So it works in my happy place anyway :lol: --where could have I gone wrong?

Do the racers really go to Split? If they go from Dubrovnik to Florence, then I think it works out. Dubrovnik ends w 6 TBC, Florence ends w 5, India ends w 4, Osaka ends w 3, and Taiwan ends w 3 TBC.

Another thought is that one of the "episodes" is two hours. CBS.com counted the Polish extravaganza as 1 episode (and, I think, 1 leg) so maybe that would be a way for CBS to get around the "two fewer legs" comment. In this case, Osaka to Taiwan could be hour one with a TBC and Taiwan to Girdwood could be hour two, much like the finales of yore. Granted, it would be really obvious to the viewers, but whatever.

And from our pictures, would the order be:

1. Goths
2. Ron/Chris
3. TK/Rachel
4. Jen/Nate (their boat was already out as Nic/Donald started leaving)
5. Nic/Donald
6. Az/Hend

And do the tasks go: Pit Start - Airport - Cluebox - RB - Detour - Pit Stop/"Pit Stop"

Split is pure speculation based on one source photo--and is probably very unlikely.

We need Chateau's times on the Nate/Jenny boat to be sure--but I think that is the probable correct order so far.

And yes on the order of tasks too!

We still need to find that Pitstop....

Hello people!

Can't sleep, so just dropping in to say thanks for the fantastic work in spoiling! Especially to puddin, Chateau, peach (and michael who posted some airport  :mas25).

Anyways, just adding my thoughts about the title("Cherry on Top of the Sundae that's Already Melted"):

1) I don't think it will be said by the last team (if assuming TBC leg)  because doesn't Phil only give the news to the first team to hit the mat and then it goes "TO BE CONTINUED (dun dun dun!)"

2) I think it is definitely about Hendekea/Azaria or TK/Rachel when they check in 5th (if assuming elimination leg) because they've probably had such a crappy leg and to still stay in it they're relieved

3) Just the wording of it makes me think Ron says it.

I really hope one of these things are correct lol. Stay safe people!

Hey I was thinking the title might be Kynt --we know he wears that pink cowboy hat and maybe Phil says something to him about it and they do come in first place, finally! and maybe it is a TBC/Superleg and then thats when Kynt says the title? just thinking outloud  B:) B:) but cherries are red so  B:) B:)

Btw, I wanted to remind everyone that this week is a doubleheader weekend for CBS with the featured game at 4:15 p.m. ET, the Steelers-Patriots. Knowing that these teams hate each other and will probably throw a lot, this game might not get over until 7:45 p.m. I'll have the coverage map from the506.com later in the week, but I know PA will definitely be affected as well as up here in the New England area.

Oh my goth (I felt the urge to say that) this is going to be so fun watching this episode. Just looking at how it compares to what we knew, right down to Kynt in the pink cowboy hat. Anyways, a couple intresting things I noticed...

1. Ron/Christina do the boat detour - so either it is their boat that was out before Nic/Don or Nate/Jen's boat.

2. Hendekea does the roadblock; Ron does the roadblock; Don does the roadblock

3. Kynt/Vyxsin choose to do the same detour choice as Rachel/TK did.

4. Jen says to the taxi driver "You wont take us because we're wet?" - This "clip" is probably after they complete the detour.

Nate and Jen were first and took boat one--which we know is gone before Team Gramps arrives. (Blue outside)

Team Gramps are in boat 2 and have some trouble because they try to leave while it is still tied to boat 3.

Ron/Chris are prob in boat 4? all white but hard to be sure which #--but prob they are later...

Okay--I think Gramps is in the #2 boat because that is the ONLY one still attached to boat # 3.  The others are all tied to different parts of the raft. Ignore the color for a minute and look at how they are tied up and to each other.

Where you have marked in red on the boat is EXACTLY the same on each boat--they are all identical except for the color. It is the color contrast seen from above that makes the depth and the transom look different, at least to my eye.

Just notice that boat # whatever is tied up to boat 3--the only reason for that to be is if they were next to each other.

Boat #1 is gone when Gramps leaves--Nate/Jen are in boat #1 so they are ahead.  We all agree on that part right?

I do see what you are saying about the color--I just think that the color is the least accurate part of these preview shots.

 I don't think you can tell the color in the new shots--it is too grayed out. And why would they suddenly add in a 7th boat? Even if one had difficulties there are 4 others there.

And  there is NO way to tell that Ron/Chris are ahead of Gramps in the boats--they may be behind.  Unless I am totally missing something else?? Which is ALWAYS possible! :lol:

Just my take on it all.  And for those of you who are wondering why we are talking about this--it is important because it tells us who is ahead at that moment.

peach, go look at the times on page one of this thread, theres no way that Chris/Ron can be behind Don/Nic unless it took Ron hours to do the Roadblock.
And remember the blogger said that Don/Nic got tangled on the other boats.

Ron & Christina getting the Roadblock clue, according to the blogger they were first to arrive.

back to flights...

see below..

i'm thinking these are good times and thinking that lithuania is another non-standard pit stop to accommodate

also looking at flight options from dub to florence i'm not sure it is a tbc, as it would only fit the super early teams.

Now it's my turn to be confused  ???. If the Lit leg took place on the 17th, and the 18th was an extended pitstop (boat rides etc.), then wouldn't VNO-DBV have to be early on the 19th?
Title: Re: EP6: "Cherry on Top of the Sundae that's Already Melted"
Post by: georgiapeach on December 04, 2007, 09:28:34 PM
I think she is compensating the flights for 2008 by 2 days since 2008 is a leap year, Slowhatch.

So theoretically 17 July 2008 might correspond to July 19 2008. At least I think that is what they explained once before somewhere.

But yes--unless Dubrovnik turns into a TBC, then flights should be on July 19 early.

I think Nick and Don's boat might be boat 4 rather than boat 2. If you look at the colour of the seat Don is on, it matches, and maybe the dark floor bit is just obscured? That would still explain how they could end up being attached to boat 3, and from the photo, it's quite possible for them to have just rowed around the back of boat 3.

This picture was taken from the old town looking up to Srd Hill. It is hard to see, but you can faintly make out the switchbacks up the hill. Also, at the top of the hill, you make be able to make out an old fort and gondola base that stood at the top. All that remains now, after the war, are the hollowed out shell of the bombed remains.

I'm trying to figure out the taxi part Slowhatch, I take it you can only climb Srd Hill?

RB--Detour--Fort Revelin cluebox, find Phil, climb Srd Hill, meet Phil and his musketeers, keep racing? , find a taxi, head back to the airport?

The driver won't take them wherever because they are wet so we know thats after the detour but could they still be wet if they are sent back down? And where are everyones backpacks btw?

Is this the airport or something else?

You can take a taxi to the top!

Mountain Srdj
Croatia
Dubrovnik (Croatia)


 
This morning, there were two king-size cruise ships anchored in the front of the harbor. Garth was talking about nothing but hiking to Mount Srdj all Thursday long, so I agreed to do it. Dubrovnik is hemmed in on one side by the mountain and on the other by the sea. We could not find the ascent to the path and kept asking locals for directions. They only would say that it is a long hike up there and we should go by car. They were right.

In total, it was a 2-hour climb up a steep mountain. It was kind of crowded on the trail about 7 people passed us all were Western tourists. There were more of them on the top of the Mount Srdj. They took taxis to the top and missed the unforgettable view of the town of Dubrovnik and its harbors. The attraction of this mountain is also the remains of a bombed chair lift that was used until the 1991 siege and the ruins of a fort Napoleon had atop the mountain when they annexed the republic in the early 1800s. It was kind of a creepy site that gave me goose bumps. However, the view and the Mediterranean vegetation (wild rosemary bushes, old pine trees, huge cedars, and dry flowers) and the fauna (cows and donkeys) were more than spectacular. This arid place was a mixture of dry breeze, amazing views and evidence of war. We decided to take a different way down by way of the nearby village Bosanka. It still showed many remnants of the recent Balkan Wars of the early 1990s (ruins of salient, bunkers, and homes were lined up along the main path). We peeled off to find our track back down to Dubrovnik and then quickly hurried back to the path, fearing leftover and forgotten land mines. We found the right path and descended the mountain.
We enjoyed the light feeling of the gorgeous view and flora on the mountainside, picking marvelous bouquet of dry flowers, pomegranate, figs, kiwi, and rosemary. The bouquet made it safely home and is sitting in a vase on top of our fridge. The hillside was like a dream between the Earth and the sky. The rocky path made out of while limestone and marble quarried from the mountain zigzagged like a stairway to the town, which stretched along the hillside to the bay.
 
---------------------------------------------------------------

Here is a VIDEO of the drive to the top--fast forward to the end--take a Dramamine first!

But looks really good to me puddin!

That's a ncie thing..

We have discussed the flights forever over in Timelines. We were trying to get a spacing that would account for an arrival before noon for Ron/Chris and The Goths--one mid afternoon for TK/Rachel--and a later arrival for Az/Hen.

I'm pretty sure there were some that fit fine for that.

Well I thought we always knew that there were 3 in the lead in Dubrovnik thanks to Eilan. Didn't she say, 3 then 1 then 2 (or 3 she couldn't remember).
The Goths per Eilan seeing the check in sheet then we knew from the blog, Ron & Christina ( Insert team #3 JeNathan here) again thanks to Eilan we then get TK/Rachel followed by what we know are Don/Nic & the Siblings. What we didn't know was that we had the wrong blond (s) for team#3, not that they are in third place its just what I call them :cmas22

i've been backtracking those arrival times. :cmas18

the trouble is there might be more flights into Dubrovnik in July, as Croatia is becoming a popular vacation destination (several family members from the UK have vacationed there in the last few years)

Really need to figure out what time they get released from Lithuania, if its 36 hours Nick/Don wouldn't be leaving till after 9am right?  Also from the preview it looks like Jen is waiting nervously at a counter - to get on a flight??? that would explain their making up time.

Going off sunset on the day they checked in they would be leaving around 9am july 19th.

Flylal       VNO     FRA
TE0420  11.45    13.00

Croatia Airlines
OU0419  FRA       DBV
               2.30     16.15

are the siblings on this flight too, I wonder?

right gotta dash to a mtg, will post other flights in about 30-45 mins

Lets say the lead teams have roughly a 5 hour advantage/lead ..how do TPTB equalize them IF this is a TBC? I dunno, i can't wrap my brain around it.

No problem, really.  Along the way they will bunch up somewhere.  But, remember, in Moscow the first team to reach the mat still had time to catch the next flight to FRA on to Stuttgart.  In fact, the lead team beat Phil and the producers to the MB test track!

Well Gman I've changed my mind again that this might just be an Elim episode, I think the Siblings are next to go and now is the perfect time. If its keep on racing then they can catch up and dominate again so I'm just thinking they are eliminated afterall and the title is said by a team who thought they were finally first only to find out they were beat to the mat by another team and I'm guessing per clue that Ron/Christina might just come in first!!

*One Team falls apart during a Detour in Croatia that requires precise teamwork --the team that falls apart are JeNathan but they eventually get there
*Two Teams test their rocky relationships on the choppy waters of Croatia with very different results --very different results to me means one team strolls through the boats and to me this is Ron/Christina and the other team of course is JeNathan
 *It's "the cherry on top of the ice cream sundae that's already melted" according to one Team, when Phil gives them some news at the Pit Stop --this screams the Goths or JeNathan to me as in they think they are finally first only to find out they've been beat to the mat, again my far fetched guess is Ron/Christina come in first.

Not that it will happen this way, its just my thoughts  B:) B:)

The switchback behind the city doesn't look any wider than a footpath. The only workable auto route seems to be south, up the hill, then cut back through the village of Bosanka. Trivia: the area caught fire not long after the race (see the album (http://picasaweb.google.com/Teo.Tomsic/PozarNaSrdju)).

Looks like ya'll have everything in control; details of the Roadblock; and the Detour (Row or Rappel) and the climb to the pit stop.  So ya'll won't mind me taking a two week hiatus and trapse through Germany and Austria to enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of a traditional old fashioned, non-commercial vacation!  When the aromas of Gluehwein, Bratwurst and Chestnuts are in the air there is no stopping me.

So hang loose, enjoy ep 6; the end of Survivor, (thankfully the end of Kid Nation never more to be seen, I hope) and have everything all laid out for ep 7 when I return.

By the way, this year it seems that the Roadblock is coming first before the Detour.  Did TPTB worry that having just one player doing the roadblock at the end was too much phsychological strain on that person especially if because he or she goofs up (the girls in Norway, the guys in Egypt) the team is eliminated?

And my guess, for what it is worth, is that the is a "continue on racing" instruction at the mat so no pit stop as such.  Maybe a greeter there with Phil, but no pit stop.

Auf Wiedersehen!~ :cmas28

See you when you get back, gman!  :cmas28 :cmas28 :cmas28

And I agree that the siblings will probably go here. Kind of like All Stars when Rob & Amber dominated the first few legs and then were eliminated, the siblings have shown to be quite dominant, then set up for the big fall.

I don't know if Ron/Christina will finish first, but I do believe they will be in the top 3 again. Perhaps even with Jen Nation arguing, I think they find a way to get to the mat first before dad-daughter. And based on the title, I think it'll be Ron or Christina saying it.  :mas25 :mas25 :mas25

Of course, I have been wrong before ... my scores in the Pick 'em game are a great example.  :lol3: :lol3:

So I'm still confused on the boats. If Nate/Jen are in the water by a little after 1 and Nic/Don are in it during the 5 o'clock hour, how do we have only 1 boat missing when there should be 2 by the time Nic/Don set off?

finally a gap in meetings, darnit work interferring with detective work :cmas3

I think I have found the route taken to Dub by the front teams.

LO0774  6.25    6.50  VNO WAW
LO0223  7.55    9.15  WAW VIE
OS7059  10.10 11.20 VIE    DBV

If TK and Rachel missed the connection in Vienna the next flight would be

OS731 13.15 14.40    VIE   DBV

you know those crazy hippies.

This is all dependent on them getting out of the pitstop in time to get a 6.25 flight.

I'd knew I'd seen that  :cmas51  so the pitstop couldn't have been 36hrs? cause the picture of Ron on the stilts was taken around 8pm correct?

I bet Nate & Jenn end up on the same flights as the first 3 teams and then Hen & Az forget something - an oversight ... leaving the amazing fannypack???

and I'm thinking this is an elimination round.

Maybe there are 2 missing and the other tied up boat could be a crew boat tied up as well -- the cam crews have to get there somehow.
Heres what I think is one of the crews big boats from Slowhatchs find--which is along side the picture in Don/Nics shot.
These were taken on July 18th I believe.

The only reason I just can't see this being an elimination round is because that would be 4 episodes to eliminate two teams, and I don't see them doing back to back double legs -- it seems more reasonable for

Yeah but we've never had an 11 episode series so who knows what they're going to pull out of their hats?  I don't care if its a superleg or if someone is eliminated but still if the 2 Musketeers are some form of greeter its suspicious you know? Have we ever had "greeters" at anything other than a elim pitstop or old NEL legs?

that first bunch of teams is going to be way ahead of the later 2. 

Looking at flight times they would be in florence that night, would TPTB let that happen again?

If it was a TBC we probably wouldn't see the last teams checking into the fake pit stop because the episode usually ends at Phil saying "KEEP RACING" to team #1

Ok, we've got three NFL games to contend with at 4:15 p.m. on CBS, Pittsburgh at New England, my Browns at the Jets and Kansas City at Denver.

Here is the distribution map (http://www.the506.com/nflmaps/2007-14-CBS2.html) for the games and times in your area. Don't forget if one game ends early, CBS will cut to one in progress so everyone in the Eastern and Central time zones can join the primetime lineup together. If you have the CBS Eye-lert (http://www.cbs.com/eye-lerts/?source=cbshp), you'll be e-mailed or texted the start time of The Amazing Race. Two weeks ago when CBS had the doubleheader, the start time was 8:55 p.m. because the Broncos-Bears game went into OT. I do believe with the Steelers-Pats, the game will end late and TAR will not begin until 8:40 p.m. at the earliest.

Maybe its just an actual Non elimination leg.

Phil said 11 legs of the race, and whenever there were "TBC" he wouldnt state the number of legs at the start.  I also thought Pat and Kate said in a interview "we thought there were no non eliminations" or something to that extent.

I think its just going to be a normal non elimination leg, but thats just me.

Long time reader, first time poster.....I've been following you guys this season as you've deciphered through all the pictures, promo's and eye witness accounts and think you guys are doing an amazing job. (I'm in second in my work pool no thanks to the work you guys are doing on here). So my question is, based on the picture evidence what would you all say is your best guess at ranking when it comes to "the mat"/the pitstop in Croatia ?


Welcome bbjohnny  :xmas146 , do you mean what place they come in?

Yeah....I know we can't be 100% for certain but what would be your best guess?

Goths, guessing the rappel is faster than boating and after they rappel/climb its only 5 minutes to walk to the old port but they have to make their way up the Srdj mountain by cab so who knows but I have a good feeling about this.
Ron/ Christina= boat, looks like they are doing well
JeNathan = enough said  :cmas19
TK/ Rachel = rappel/climb
Don/Nic = boats
Siblings eliminated =had a bad day

Ok after that preview I'm thinking it's either Nate/Jenn (because they're not eliminated but had a crappy leg with each other) OR Don/Nick who say that (because they aren't eliminated).

Also, I agree with puddins hitlist  :snicker:

1) Kynt/Vyxsin
2) Ron/Chris
3) Nate/Jen
4) TK/Rachel
5) Don/Nick
6) Az/Hen

But I totally think that 1 and 2 can be interchangeable. I've got this irking feeling the Goths come 2nd because weren't Ron/Chris really far in front?

Post by: michael on December 06, 2007, 07:41:59 PM
I'm still really confused as to weather or not this will be an elimination -- I mean, we have the pitstop shots of ron and christina so it most likely is, but how can they spread out 2 eliminations over 5 episodes?

Puddin said there was info on a Pitstop with an elim so maybe we'll hear more about that later?

Taiwan will almost certainly be TBC...

Florence or India would be good ones too.

Those are just my guesses I mean really anything could happen from one point to the other point, getting lost, messing up, ya know?
If you look at Chateau's :crown times back on page one (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,14020.msg239953.html#msg239953) of Kynt doing the Roadblock and Chris/dad arriving to the Roadblock cluebox, its pretty darn close so it depends on whos faster and luckier.

It was based on the Christina/Ron confessional peach's unless you think thats Italy behind them  :cmaslol? If they were told to keep racing they wouldn't be sitting around going  B:) B:) B:) unless you all know something I don't know? Lets find some Srdj whatever mountain/hill pictures.

I would love to see the goths come in 1st. They have run some really good legs and just missed comming in 1st in Lithuania. So do they just do all confessionals from the pitstop?

If the Pitstop is the top of Mt Srdj--then they are not there for that confessional IMO because they are more at lake level and not looking way down on the lake as they would from Srdj.

A pitstop makes sense for flights to Florence without the front teams getting horribly ahead.

With a 12 hour pitstop they would all get out of Dubrovnik in time for those early am flights.  Not sure if Florence could be a "keep racing" I will need to check flights onto India.  As I recall most of the better connections where around noonish.

Where are they supposed to go after Croatia? I'll look for mountains!

Where are they supposed to go after Croatia? I'll look for mountains!
Is it Florence?
I'd bank it be Srdj Dubrovnik. The stones the mountains, the water etc. Same clothes even  :cmas27

The lakes actually make a lot of sense--while certainly crowded in the summer it is nothing like Florence--there is more room to spread out and the teams might have a better chance of not being seen.

Plus it is absolutely gorgeous! We can find this!

The switchback behind the city doesn't look any wider than a footpath. The only workable auto route seems to be south, up the hill, then cut back through the village of Bosanka. Trivia: the area caught fire not long after the race (see the album (http://picasaweb.google.com/Teo.Tomsic/PozarNaSrdju)).

finally a gap in meetings, darnit work interferring with detective work :cmas3

I think I have found the route taken to Dub by the front teams.

LO0774  6.25    6.50  VNO WAW
LO0223  7.55    9.15  WAW VIE
OS7059  10.10 11.20 VIE    DBV

If TK and Rachel missed the connection in Vienna the next flight would be

OS731 13.15 14.40    VIE   DBV

you know those crazy hippies.

This is all dependent on them getting out of the pitstop in time to get a 6.25 flight.


patlini, good research work here, but my work on Nov. 29 -Dec. 1 (between Caribbean and hospital) had discovered that OS 7059 did not exist on July 19. If it did, that is the only way I see that teams could get to Dubrovnik before noon starting from VNO that morning. My sources are not always correct, although they are most of the time. You are extrapolating from July 17, 2008, when it clearly will exist. We'll have to wait for the show to see.  Visit the Timelines thread for an analysis of this very subject, I forget the post # but date was probably Nov. 30 or Dec. 1.

I want to go back to the nighttime shot of Ron and Christina. If in competition(as it certainly appears), it can only occur if the Vilnius pitstop is 24 hours. I am guessing teams would be released sometime between 6pm and 9pm on July 18. We now have a viable explanation for team separation. Now, to get anywhere that will help them that evening, there are only two options:

July 18 BT165 VNO CPH 1820 1855  SK659 CPH MUC 1935 2110 overnight at MUC airport, then July 19 OU5437 MUC ZAG 0735 0840  OU660 ZAG DBV 0930 1025

July 18 BT165 VNO CPH 1820 1855 OS306 CPH VIE 2005  2150 overnight at VIE airport, then July 19  OU5443 VIE ZAG 0700 0800   OU660  ZAG DBV 0930 1025

There is a third through Helsinki to Munich, then following the same slights MUC to ZAG to DBV shown above, but it provides no different results..

Teams had to be released from the pitstop in time to get to the airport, book the flight, and get on it. If they checked in to the pitstop by 530pm this might be possible. It could explain how certain teams got ahead and the others were stuck. Those other teams could try Prague, Warsaw, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Paris, London, Vienna, Milan, Rome or Helsinki, but they will not succeed and could indeed be subject to the fate that Uchenna and Joyce received of elimination by inability to make a make a connection due to cirsumstances mostly beyond their control.

So JeNathan beat Chris/Ron to the pitstop? maybe? but still we don't know how well the Goths did? they did what looks like the quicker detour option and Eilan says its about a 5 minute "walk" to the other port from where they climbed Pile gate so I'm not counting them out as first yet.

yeah I'll say the goths come in first because of jen and nate saying that there are teams infront of them while doing the detour. Maybe Jen/Nate come in 2nd and that's why Jen says the title?!

It's going to be very close.  Jenn & Nate ahead of Ron & Chris.  Rope Detour is faster (but what if they have to make the rope ladder or part of it?)  Jenn & Nate take the zipline before the Goths.  It will come down to whether a team gets lost and how fast they can run to the mat from the taxi drop off spot. 

The shot of Jenn and Nate getting their taxi could be about the same time as the shot of Vyxsin on the rope.

Puddin, the 2:04 to 2:19 pm shot is by the guns, not by the taxi.

Never mind, you've got it now

  Siblings is safe  :cmaslol .. I think hes doing the RB? and she might be pointing like "hurry I see someone on the zipline!" or hurry! theres the Detour!"
Then we do have that one scene of JeNathan not getting a cab ride because they are wet so maybe just maybe the Goths pass them there because they aren't wet? *keeping my fingers crossed*

I hope this look is the darn we aren't first!

Funny, but Michael go study and let the rest of us pass you on the game.  School is much more important then rubbing our face in your victory.

Oh i hope jenate aren't first.  I don't mind listening to their bitching so much each episode as its so ridiculous its funny but if they beat out the Goths we won't hear the end of it from Jen.

I just need to say koodos to Nate and Jen for taking the oars out of those  holes.  Teams in AR10 nobody did that and thats why i think they all has so much trouble rowing.  Personlly i think its easier without those wholes.  Finally a team figured it out

THANK YOU TO EILAN!!! for all the hours you spent working on this leg with us! :thankyou:

And everything about team order--flight delays--locations--was totally right!

Major kudos to you!  :cheer: :yourock: :cheer:

Why would someone who doesn't know how to row a rowboat choose that?  It is easier to leave the oars in the holes - if you have any idea how to row.

I agree. If you watched carefully, one of the ways that Azaria almost caught up was by leaving his oars where they belong(in the holes) and using them as extra leverage for his strokes. Those who did not were depriving themselves of that leverage. You dissipate a lot of force into the water but not into forward motion when you paddle like a canoe.

Checking my DVD of the race last night, Azaria specifically told the ticket agent that he wanted Economy Class on the LOT Polish Airlines flight. Thus, it was the ticket agent's fault for giving them Business Class tickets, but at the same time, it was Azaria's & Hendekea's fault for not checking them before they left the office.

Once at the bottom, choose a rope ladder and finish assembling it
That explains the TK/Rachel photos.

If you have any experience at all in rowing, you keep the oars in the hooks.  That helps keep your pressure even and able to apply maximum force (f you are placed correctly in the boat).

rowing is getting like driving stick on this show - a given

People who are lucky enough to be selected should really go and learn to do both prior to the race

Reality TV World:  Where were everyone's backpacks when they were getting off those planes?  It looked like everyone left their backpacks back at baggage pickup or something for this leg.

Azaria:  They confiscated our backpacks -- production did -- when we got off of the airplane... I assume that they knew that we'd be doing zip lines and potentially jumping into water.  So that's why they took them...

Reality TV World:  Why did you two call Sequesterville after your elimination?

Hendekea:  We did not end up going to [Sequesterville], so we called in to give them the news.

Reality TV World:  Is there a reason why you didn't go there?

Hendekea:  Because of our location at that point in the race, we ended up traveling with the rest of the teams to go to the finals.  Because we were closer to the final Pit Stop, we flew onward rather than going back to Portugal [which is where Sequesterville is located].
