Ruhpolding & Schönau am Königsee, Germany --  Salzburg, Austria (Nov 3)

Mrs Shrek's blog find:  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,17788.msg359143.html#msg359143)
I also have to say that one of the most exciting points of the day was when we saw signs for the show "The Amazing Race."  It was being filmed at the palace where the famous Sound of Music gazebo now is.  I took a picture of one of the signs that I saw, but there also were about 15 matching white Mercedes out front that were supposed to belong to the people in the amazing race. After I took a picture, an angry man came and put a garbage bag over the sign.

Michael's blog find: (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,17788.msg359145.html#msg359145)

The driver pulled down the window and asked a young Austrian man for directions. I recognized right away that the driver spoke American English, so being the helpful American I am, I pulled around the front of the car to see if I could help. The Austrian man was fishing for his English vocabulary. Both the front and rear driver's side windows were down. A young man was driving, what I guess was his wife or girlfriend was behind him.
"How do you get to Schloss Hellbrunn?" the man asked me. He and the woman were frazzled, amazingly desperate! And they were covered in what looked like an amazing amount blood, guts, and pumpkin rot. But it all looked fake. Plus they had tons of make-up on.
I explained that they needed to turn back onto the major road they had just left, Alpenstraße, and head straight down until they passed underneath and underpass. Then they should take the very next right which would lead them down a wooded country lane.
By the time I had finished my first sentence, out of the car from the front and back passenger seats raced the camera man and the boom (sound) man, and they were both on me. I was good. Amazingly enough, I didn't look into the camera! I put a foot on my peddle to push off and ride away when the boom man caught my eye. He shook his head quickly as if to say, "Don't race off!"
The camera man turned off his camera and the boom man, an American, explained to the Austrian and me that we had to sign a release or this footage couldn't be used.
While we signed the paperwork, the woman in the backseat swore. They were in an amazing rush! The boom man turned to her and said, "Look, I told you. If you ask people questions, we have to do this. If you don't like it, don't ask for help."
"What kind of show is this?" I asked.
"A travel show," he replied.
"What channel?" I asked.
"I'm not sure," he said. Amazing, if that were true!
"What's the show called?" I asked.
Then he (sort of) came clean. He said, "I can only tell you that it's a pretty popular one!"

Off into the car they went. I wave and they raced off.
So this was some sort of race! Amazing, I thought, that I was caught in the middle of it.
I swore myself to secrecy--this was big stuff--I couldn't tell people about this! In two minutes I was home and spilling my guts to Jenny. Then one of my students came over 15 minutes later to pick up some soup, and I was telling her before she even sat down.
After my student left, Jenny suggested we head to Hellbrunn (only 5 minutes from our apartment) to see what we could see. There's a huge playground there and we promised Nikolas he could play there a bit (he said 40 minutes, and we said about 10--hey, it was getting dark!).
When we got to Hellbrunn, I noticed not one, but three cars that looked like the one I'd seen earlier. They each had numbers in the back window. The highest number I saw was 11.
When we tried to enter the castle grounds, we were immediately forced to make a U-Turn by a staff member. "Das Schloss ist zu wegen Dreharbeit." Closed due to filming...hmmm.
Just then, another white car pulled into the parking lot. A different set of people but with camera and boom men. They held each other's hands and headed right past us through a different door than the main entrance. I wanted to tell them that the path they were taking was a Detour, but I figured it wasn't my place.
In fact, a staff member came up to us a short time later and asked us in German if we'd said anything to the couple. "Nein," we answered. Dang, can't we be friendly?
Jenny decided to take Nikolas down that path to see where the couple was headed. I waited in case more white cars appeared in the parking lot. None did, and soon Jenny was back to tell me that she's seen "things." Well, I wanted to see things, too, so off I went along the path. The pathway was heavily wooded so it was even darker. Up ahead I could see huge lights, the kind you see on film sets. But there was a Roadblock between lights and me: a gate and a staff member. I spoke to the staff member for a moment. I asked him if they were filming an advertisement (playing dumb I was) and he spilled his guts. And while he spilled, I looked through the gate and saw "things."
Fast Forward to me catching up with Jenny and Nikolas in the park. We saw bobbing through the trees what looked like a TV camera light. Two women were running together. One was hobbling. The other said, "I'm going ahead a bit," and the other countered with, "OK, go ahead." Off into the park they went, clueless as the day was long.
Satisfied with the afternoon's excitement, we headed home and made a Pit Stop at Rossbräu, a local restaurant. No one recognized me from TV and I didn't tell anyone who I was.

follow up (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,17788.msg359275.html#msg359275) thanks to peach:
Yes, it was November 3. Whoever guessed the time of 4:45-5:15 was just about spot on. It was indeed a Pitstop because we could see through a side gate the check-in mat, a greeter dressed as Mozart (I'm assuming a man), and Phil. Phil was dressed in jacket, hat, and gloves and looked cold. It was chilly that night but it was a good chilly!

• The exact location of the Pitstop was just inside the inner courtyard on the left-hand side. In the Forum Hellbrun overview photo, you see four photo icons/squares in a line across the courtyard when you enter it from the long entry road. The Pitstop was located between the first and second icons on the left.
I'm including two more photos of the team of two women. Not very good ones, but then again, your photo people might have some fun. Finally, there's a photo of the cars the next morning. My wife went jogging out to Hellbrunn at about 6:30am. She said that they'd closed up shop, so it looks like there were no day-late stragglers like there sometimes are (which must drive them insane).
What else? I overheard camera/sound folks expressing frustrations about their teams not having a clue but nothing very specific. It seems after teams check in, their camera/sound folks are done for the day. At different times, crews climbed into a black van and were whisked off into the Hellbrunn grounds, I'm assuming to wherever there was a buffet for staff since it was dinner time, but I have no proof of that.
All the best and good luck with your research!

Regarding the gory slime: at first, I thought they'd been involved in a Halloween event even though it was Nov. 3. Halloween is celebrated here but not like it is at home. They sell some "Scream" masks in the stores--that's about it. Anyway, my wife guessed that they could've been taking part in some local custom, maybe something with beer brewing or cheese making. BUT the woman in the car I first saw as well as the older man and woman whom we saw at Hellbrunn had the stuff on them in places you'd figure you would clean up right away, like on your face. It's almost as if they were made up like that and were expected to leave it on. But again, I have no proof. There was some slime on one of the cars that I passed by. I should've taken a sample! By the way, the team of two women appeared to have no slime on them whatsoever which would imply they had a choice in a previous activity. A Detour?
As I thought more about it today, I do remember a crew member saying something about climbing a mountain earlier in the day. Something how his team person saw arrows pointing downward, but she thought it was a trick, so she went back up the mountain. Again, that was a fleeting conversation and I may be messing up the details.


The girls were nowhere near last! When we left Hellbrunn, there were only five or six white cars there. The next day, my wife took the photo with some dozen cars. No, I have a feeling that it was going to be a late night because we left at 6 p.m. or so and there had been no sign of anyone else arriving. Again, my wife is sure that by 6:30 a.m. the next day, all had been wrapped up. She ran through the courtyard where the Pitstop had been, and it was all cleaned up.

They were definitely not African American. I would guess that they were mid- to late- twenties, but it was getting dark so I could be totally off. The one in the pink had brown hair, the other had lighter hair, but not blond. The one in the pink dropped her water bottle, which was white. The camera man got the drop and the pick up on film, then they all started off again. They were totally heading the wrong way, convinced that lights on a pond area must be lighting the Pitstop. It took them a good five minutes to figure out where they really needed to be.

•peach adds per blogger (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,17788.msg372785.html#msg372785):
The couple he gave directions to in the car: It was actually Amanda and Kris! The women look similar (Jennifer and Amanda), but the guy was definitely Kris. They seemed to be very tanned when I saw them, but it may have been make-up now that I think about it.
Yes, the older man and woman are the ones we saw (she was limping). ...but she does look good for her age. {this was Brad/Victoria}
Yes, the two young redheads are the women who got lost in Hellbrunn park.

thanks to Neobie!

The links are tenuous and the assumptions huge, but it's an educated guess!
*Assumes placings remain constant throughout Bavaria*

Based on Salzburg spoiler, Amanda/Kris should be in Top 3.
Tammy/Victor beat Amanda/Kris, Luke/Margie and Brad/Victoria to the pies.
Tammy/Victor likely to be Top 2.

Based on Salzburg spoiler again, Brad/Victoria are likely 4th and Cara/Jamie 5th.
Amanda and Brad are together on the gondola.
Amanda/Kris therefore likely to be 3rd.

Amanda/Kris, Brad/Victoria, Jodi/Christie, Michael/Mark are together at Roadblock, when
Linda and Mel talk of "more teams are on their way".
The only unaccounted teams are Luke/Margie and LaKisha/Jennifer.
Could we place them at the Bottom 4 together with Linda/Steve and Mike/Mel?

Very appropriate title. 

So we have:

Travel from Interlaken by train or car

Arrive in Ruhpolding, Germany

ROADBLOCK - Paragliding

Drive through Berchtesgaden to Schoenau am Konigsee

DETOUR - (1) Cake in the Face, or (2) Segway around the lake

Question:

Do teams have a pit stop in Bavaria, or do they drive the short distance to Salzburg?

If they go to Salzburg, then find Schloss Helbrunn.

Pit Stop.  The second team is eliminated.

See I was thinking the same thing gingerman. I would think that since they are spending mostly the whole episode in Germany they would include the pitstop there, and feature Austria as the next leg. After 13 seasons, thats how it's always been.

But Salzburg is literally only a short drive from the German locations; according to the dates of the sightings, there isn't time for another leg; and the description of the teams being in a mess from the blogger in Austria suggests they had come straight from the cake trhowing

If I'd been on the Race, I would've chosen the Segway Detour even if I'm not particularly good at that kind of thing.  I'd hate having a cake thrown in my face!

TV Review
The Amazing Race
Few things signal 
a fine new season of The Amazing Race better than when a contestant yells the words ''Don't let the cheese hit me!'' and you don't laugh but rather fear for his life.

So it is in the premiere of season 14, when members of 11 teams must carry 
50-pound wheels of cheese down a hill 
in Switzerland. And not just carry, but 
balance them on a wooden ''antique cheese rack'' strapped to their backs. Pretty 
soon, wood is splintering and cheese is rumbling anarchically toward such duos as:

∑Margie and Luke, a mother-son pair. Luke is Race's first deaf contestant and proudly does not read lips. I know this can be a heated topic in deaf circles; fortunately in Race circles, you can usually see (no hearing necessary) when a giant block of cheese is coming at you ó or, as in 
episode 2, a pie is being thrown in your face.

∑Mel and Mike, geezer dad and his perpetually grinning son, who's actually screenwriter-actor Mike White. He credits himself here as the writer of School of Rock, but truly touched greatness (just ask Owen Gleiberman) with his creepazoid turn in 2000's Chuck & Buck.

∑Steve and Linda, married and self-
proclaimed Virginia ''hillbillies'' who do a lotta yellin' and cryin'.

That's just the cream o' the crop; there's a crackerjack assortment of Race teams this season, and I really like the way the show has incorporated more 24-style split-screen editing that lets you know where teams are in relation to each other during competitions. So far, the challenges and roadblocks are real tests of brains and endurance, with a notable lessening of those long jabbering-at-ticket-agents-in-foreign-airports montages that were becoming a drag. And of course 
we couldn't have a Race without host Phil Keoghan, who sets up such challenges as the pie-throwing event with lines like ''Teams could find themselves...getting creamed.'' Phil is the TV industry standard for pure ham-on-wry. Even the ''hillbillies'' agree: ''I love the eyebrow!'' says Linda, when Keoghan raises it to convey his signature expression of amused dubiousness ó or is that dubious amusement?

The Amazing Race remains the most 
exhilarating reality show because it provokes such a wide range of emotions in the contestants and in us. You can always 
find a team to identify with and invest 
in; you can always find a few brats to detest. Then there's the subtler middle ground. 
I think the addition of Luke will prove 
edifying. Right now, other teams talk earnestly to the camera about his ''integrity,'' but if the deaf kid starts smokin' the 
competition, pious p.c. sentiments will probably degenerate as fast as Mike White's dad's pulled groin. Ouch. And yay. AĖ

For some reason, I just can't see TPTB sending teams from paragliding in Ruhpolding to Berchtesgaden (pie throwing) and Konigssee (Segway) and then back to Ruhpolding. It's the wrong direction to the Schloss Hellbrunn.

I can see them having a woodcutter/woodcutters set up closer to those tasks that the teams have to find and get the clue to go to the Pit Stop. I remember in Argentina they had to find the guy in the black coat to get a clue and other instances where they had to do similiar.

I am starting to get a headache again.....lol

If the paragliding is the Roadblock then they are together, we see Mike watching Mel. I wouldn't read too much into that clue, we know teams had to drive so maybe the driver, who ever was driving, got lost.

Recently in the news down here, an Iraqi/Afghan vet returned home and his girlfriend gave him a paraglide ride. During the ride, the instructor had a heart attack and died in mid air. The vet grabbed the control cables and managed to land the paraglider and administer CPR, but to no avail. He landed quit a way from where they were supposed to land. So it is possible to get lost paragliding. For some reason it seems to me that the time frame from landing to being found was something like 30 minutes. This was in the last month, I believe, that it was in the news. I am not suggesting in the slightest that this happened. It is just an example of getting lost while paragliding.

Puddin's idea makes much more sense.

from the Salzburg blogger.. maybe Linda? and now i think the team mate must be watching the roadblock doer from a distance ...

*As I thought more about it today, I do remember a crew member saying something about climbing a mountain earlier in the day. Something how his team person saw arrows pointing downward, but she thought it was a trick, so she went back up the mountain. Again, that was a fleeting conversation and I may be messing up the details.

It's actually Linda (Linda & Steve)... It's in the next episode preview that was shown after episode 1. And she's doing a Roadblock!

So if this is a roadblock, and the paragliding is a roadblock too... then we expect 2 roadblocks in 1 leg... which is impossible unless this is a tbc.

Or maybe the paragliding roadblock is leg 3.

My algebra-trigonometry-calculus thing fell to pieces as I tried to figure out what times the teams checked in, but teams arrived in a 1h range into Interlaken, so I guess they'd be all bunched for the flights?

Post by: goodyingbadyang on February 16, 2009, 03:49:16 AM
I'm guessing that the paragliders can't take off with that kind of wind blowing so the roadblockers were given the option to wait around to see if the wind keeps up or to hike their way back down the mountain.

Mel, obviously with his sprained groin, cannot even think about hiking down and so he waits around until eventually (per the montage clips) the wind finally goes down and off he goes.

Now whether or not waiting around like that while the rest of the teams head off will get them eliminated, I don't know.

Roadblock: still paragliding
Detour: still cakes vs segways

SC #14 above:  Is that Linda with the helmet on next to Mel?

I can't tell absolutely for sure but IMO it looks and sounds like Linda.

If it's Linda, did she do it or did she walk down by herself deciding not to do it?  If it's Roadblock would they get a time penalty from the time they decide to walk back down?  Am I way off base on this?  They are not doing it because of the danger and the Outfit indicated no Paragliding as long as the wind is too high.  Therefore, it's technically it's not their decision to not do the Roadblock.

Whether she did or didn't do the paragliding then where is her paragliding partner?  Maybe it's possible she's not that lost and it won't effect them that much.  Maybe CBS is doing the same thing they did with preview for 1st episode.

read through post 1 this topic ..  :tup: , Kris/Amanda Brad/Victoria and Cara/Jamie are safe according to the eyewitness and photo evidence of 2 of the teams.
And its not the pitstop, again, read the thread.

I'm thinking they all got on the same flight from Bern to Munich:
LH3655 0645-0750 (The next flight out is a staggering 4.5h later!)

With teams checking in between (I think) 3pm and 4.30pm and leaving in the dark of night, they'd be comfortable with the 70km taxi ride to Bern. (Sunset for the previous day was 5.11pm.)

I'm thinking (after watching Insiders):

Luke/Margie, Tammy/Victor, Mark/Michael: 3.27pm
Mike/Mel: 3.33pm
Amanda/Kris: 3.50pm
LaKisha/Jennifer: 3.52pm
Cara/Jaime, Brad/Victoria, Steve/Linda: 3.52-4.22pm
Jodi/Christie, Jennifer/Preston: 4.22pm

I wonder if the Roadblockers had to walk all the way to the landing site. 

Or did they have to walk back to where they parked by the Gondola Station between Ramsier and Fritz am Sand.  Then just drive from there.

ē I also have to say that one of the most exciting points of the day was when we saw signs for the show "The Amazing Race."  It was being filmed at the palace where the famous Sound of Music gazebo now is.  I took a picture of one of the signs that I saw, but there also were about 15 matching white Mercedes out front that were supposed to belong to the people in the amazing race. After I took a picture, an angry man came and put a garbage bag over the sign.

Non spoilerish, but this bring awwww to my heart.

The elimination this leg could really be Linda and Steve, since they are giving all the teams a balanced screentime this season. BUT, again.. they seemed to be giving the David and Mary edit to Linda and Steve.. which there is a possibility they might go really far.

I wonder how a team successfully completes the cake Detour.  One cake each to the face?  Some video shows one teammate running toward the other to hit them in the face with the cake.  If you had to throw it from the red marks on the floor, that would be more challenging.

And I found the location of the Pie Toss Tent:  SchŲnau am KŲnigssee

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR14/ep2/rff-0041.jpg)


Chateau, I think you have the tent in the paved parking lot where you put your red circle. The floor of the tent and the area where Victor is standing is grass. I think you are so close, maybe move your circle a few meters to the north to one of the grass areas. Personally, I think it is the one to the left of the pathway or road, but up to you. You are so good at placing things.

No, teams have not been allowed to hitch rides for some time, I believe... I think they are limited to "approved" vehicles only nowdays...

But I suppose the rules in each country could be different?

Search SchŲnau am KŲnigssee on Google, I found a site for tourist info.

http://www.koenigssee.com/schoenau/english/e_schoen.htm

Given the preview for next week, on of the tabs on the page is 10 hiking rules ... Linda at least took a camera team with her.

The site also mentions that bobsled rides are available on the track.  One experienced driver can take up to 3 riders.  That would have been a fun task for our teams.

The only team member we see flying in promos/previews is Mel. It makes sense he stays up there and flies. With his groin injury, he canít walk down and fits with what he yells as he takes off, ď I donít care if I am eliminatedÖÖĒ

The links are tenuous and the assumptions huge, but it's an educated guess!
*Assumes placings remain constant throughout Bavaria*

Based on Salzburg spoiler, Amanda/Kris should be in Top 3.
Tammy/Victor beat Amanda/Kris, Luke/Margie and Brad/Victoria to the pies.
Tammy/Victor likely to be Top 2.

Based on Salzburg spoiler again, Brad/Victoria are likely 4th and Cara/Jamie 5th.
Amanda and Brad are together on the gondola.
Amanda/Kris therefore likely to be 3rd.

Amanda/Kris, Brad/Victoria, Jodi/Christie, Michael/Mark are together at Roadblock, when
Linda and Mel talk of "more teams are on their way".
The only unaccounted teams are Luke/Margie and LaKisha/Jennifer.
Could we place them at the Bottom 4 together with Linda/Steve and Mike/Mel?

Okay Puddin, I will edit the list. I just looked at the vidcaps, not the videos. I guess I should  do that, huh? I thought that was Jen running away from the camera. Now, there is no info on either Luke/Margie or Kisha/Jen

One thing I am wondering about. That Salzburg blogger talking about the crew comment. "One racer climbed back up the mountain, because she didnt trust the arrows." I wonder if when Linda got back to the top, the wind had changed and she flew afterall? Guess we will have to wait for the show to find out.

I can't figure this one out. "On their way" where? Is he talking about "more teams on their way," that still haven't arrived in Ruhpolding from the airport in Munich or is he talking about "more teams on they way" back down the mountain, both non-roadblockers and roadblocker/hikers?

I think we need some more data to make it clear.

I take it as teams that are behind them as in on their way to the RB area, not there yet, down the mountain, on their way up.

I think CBS may be making something out of nothing when it comes to the horse. Maybe a team is completely stuck for ideas and tries asking a horse for directions?

Aside from that, in WW2 the German forces were heavily reliant on horses, so maybe an additional task relating to that?

More clues
Next On The Amazing Race
 Your Target is Your Partner's Face (Germany)
An injured racer must make a game altering decision when Mother Nature refuses to cooperate. Lost in the Alps! One team's hopes are pinned on a rescue on a secluded mountain road. Teams get creamed with Austrian schlog and one team turns to a horse to decipher their clue.

The horse comment in puddin's message caught my eye this time.

Who encounters a horse?
- The Segway riders as the navigate around to find the next clue.  If this is the case, have we seen a stable in the area of the Segway riding?
- Linda walking down the mountain

More clues
Next On The Amazing Race
 Your Target is Your Partner's Face (Germany)
An injured racer must make a game altering decision when Mother Nature refuses to cooperate. Lost in the Alps! One team's hopes are pinned on a rescue on a secluded mountain road. Teams get creamed with Austrian schlog and one team turns to a horse to decipher their clue.

Someone should teach TPTB a little geography.  Schoenau am Konigsee (the location of the pie throwing task) is in GERMANY not Austria.  So the schlog (whipped cream) is German not Austrian.  Tut, tut.

So the order of this leg could be this:

1) Tammy/Victor or Amanda/Kris
2) Tammy/Victor or Amanda/Kris
3) Brad/Victoria
4) Margie/Luke
5) Cara/Jamie
6) Mark/Michael
7) Lakisha/Jennifer
8) Mel/Mike or Christie/Jodi
9) Mel/Mike or Christie/Jodi
10) Linda/Steve - Eliminated

Yeah, that would probably be a good guess for me as well.  I'd probably have Tammy & Victor in first, Amanda & Kris in second, Mel & Mike in eighth and Christie & Jodi in ninth (and next-to-last again!)

Actually i'm thinking Linda and Steve gets too much edit for a second team to be eliminated anyway. I think we haven't really seen a team who will go out second with even a storyline like theirs.

I guess they will stick around, after the happy confessions. But that would mean we have a wrong spoiler!

The caps show the normal progression from Munich to Ruhpolding: on the first cap they are traveling generally east on Autobahn-8, on the second cap they are hanging a right at Siegsdorf and starting the drive south to Ruhpolding (the circled 112 is the exit number, seen here (http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=47.825949,12.64904&spn=0.010747,0.027895&z=16)).

Linda and Steve could be three things.

1.  They aren't eliminated and another team is.
2.  They aren't eliminated, no one is its the first non elimination (means spoilers are actually right we just didn't factor in a non elimi so early.  Earliest US versions has had for a free leg is 3rd episode of season 9 with it ending in a TBC leg.
3.  They are just happy.  Happy to have been cast, to do what they did together, ect.  And hell free vacation....

I lean to #3.

Okay, bear with me...thinking out loud here...

This is all from romaniafan's great spoiler info for  next week.

These were the team's seen in the arrivals area at the airport in Bucharest:

Quote
two girls, looked to be in their 20s
Has to be Cara/Jaime

Quote
one was two slightly older African American ladies,
Kisha/Jen of course

Quote
and another was two rather short men
Mark/Michael

Quote
Jodi/Christy
from the on the plane info

Quote
I *think* there was another team arriving a little further down, but I couldn't get a good look in all the excitement.
Could be Jodi/Christy or another team

Quote
One last little tidbit: My friend said the racer sitting next to her on the plane had mentioned that others "from our group" had been on an earlier flight that day. Maybe these were just the stragglers?


okay, if these are the group who took a later flight to Bucharest, with another group earlier...

It is a bit of a stretch because there are certainly things that could happen from pitstop release to airport...

But could we say that these teams MAY  correlate with the later arrivals to Hellbrun?
Title: Re: TAR14 EP2: Your Target Is Your Partnerís Face (Germany)
Post by: Kiwi Jay on February 21, 2009, 12:52:47 PM
These guys and Mel and Mike could be the 2nd plane!  :yess: Christie/Jodi yes, Jaime/Cara yes, Mel/Mike yes, Mark and Mike and Kisha and Jen I can also see too!
Title: Re: TAR14 EP2: Your Target Is Your Partnerís Face (Germany)
Post by: georgiapeach on February 21, 2009, 01:04:57 PM
More thinking....

We have one woman who climbed back up the mt per our Salzburg spoiler info... Could that person have ended up gliding after all? ???

Also per the Salzburg spoiler, Cara/Jaime, Brad/Victoria. and Amanda/Kris should be within the first arrivals to Hellbrun...

So why are Cara/Jaime in the second plane to Romania? Yes they get a little lost finding the actual PitStop at Hellbrunn, but not so much that they should get seriously delayed right?

Yes stretching here , lots can go wrong after a PitStop release...

But suppose that our teams either do or abort the RB?

What happens when you abort or don't do a RB?

We know from the Romber meat eating challenge that there is a 4 hour penalty.

So suppose, just suppose, that all the racers who go down that MT are technically "quitting" the RB.

They would go do the cakes or the Segways, make the drive and the dash to the MAT, only to have to do a 4 hour penalty....

If that was the case, then some of our early MAT arrivals are not necessarily going to be our actual leaders, right?

So then Amanda/Kris (spec because we can't be sure what Kris did) and Brad/Victoria ( we see Victoria walk down the MT) may not have an advantage after all, even if they do arrive in Salzburg early?

This could explain why Cara/Jaime are on a later flight to Romania, despite being one of the first teams seen at Hellbrun.





Am I nuts? Anybody a RB rule expert?  :helpme



Also need to say that all the paragliding sites DO say that they fly "weather permitting", so it is equally possible that TPTB built in an alternative walk instead of glide....

Post by: mswood on February 21, 2009, 01:59:02 PM
Peach, I am trying to think if there has ever been a roadblock with two options.

One glide down (being hopefully a fast option), the second being walk down considerable slower).  That would allow the teams an option (and I would think the producers would be aware of the possible weather problems, but look at the season final of season 9 where BJ & Tyler choose an option that they weren't allowed to do for a detour).

If it doesn't include an out option, then yeah its a four hour penalty (and with the last time we saw it being season 7) starting when the next team arrives.  And if all teams are already there a straight four hour penalty.
Title: Re: TAR14 EP2: Your Target Is Your Partnerís Face (Germany)
Post by: georgiapeach on February 21, 2009, 02:11:52 PM
I suppose that if they had a marked path down already set up, then TPTB setting up an option is the most likely...but stuff like this keeps me up nights! :lol3:

Thanks mswood!
Title: Re: TAR14 EP2: Your Target Is Your Partnerís Face (Germany)
Post by: puddin on February 21, 2009, 02:18:31 PM
I assume the Roadblock option is an option made up by TPTB at the spur of the moment. Their saftey comes first so says BVM and I can't see competitive teams willing to take the so called penalty. Mel is going to wait to glide because he cannot walk per pulled groin, he has no option imo.
Maybe Cara & Jamie missed out on the better flight?
Could we assume from Seriously Romania's (http://seriouslyromania.com/2008/11/06/amazing-race/) blog that the teams were bunched anyway?

At 4am on Wednesday morning, staying up all night in honor of the US Presidential Election, I found myself at Gara de Nord, Bucharestís primary train station. Standing outside the locked building was a mix of travelers waiting with luggage, teenagers huffing from plastic bags, sanitation workers sweeping, and various hustlers trying to get money from the people who waited. I, myself, had to dodge a couple of leather-jacketed men who insisted they could put me on a bus to wherever I needed to go, Brasov by noon. Later I watched two nearby couples interact with a younger huffer, laughing uncomfortably as he half sang, half shouted something to them. Meanwhile, taxis kept pulling up periodically, and people with bags would try the locked glass doors without luck. Their attempts were understandable, though, because inside the glass doors were other travelers, miraculously inside the warm(er) building even though it was supposed to be closed until 4:30.

These other travelers were, in fact, the cast and crew of the 14th season of The Amazing Race, filming their way through Romania. I looked inside and watched the teams of two flanked by cameramen and production staff. They all seemed unaware of the motley crowd outside those doors. They talked to each other, milled around, and consulted maps. One particular team of young women looked too manicured for such a contest at such an hour. At 4:20am, the ticket counters opened early for them; the crowd outside moved closer to the locked doors. Ten minutes later, the stationís McDonaldís franchise let the cast and crew inside while keeping the public, now allowed in the building, locked outside. Soon these contestants would be headed out of the capital in search of adventure!

And if the Roadblockers took a time penalty then why aren't they taking the gondola back down the mountain with their teammates? They are walking... We see for sure Amanda and Brad on the gondola talking about making the right decision leaving Victoria and Kris to hike/walk.

Thanks puddin, I agree with team bunching later in Bucharest, but of course the train is after their airport arrival.

And if the Roadblockers took a time penalty then why aren't they taking the gondola back down the mountain with their teammates? They are walking... We see for sure Amanda and Brad on the gondola talking about making the right decision leaving Victoria and Kris to hike/walk.

This makes sense to me, I am going to go with a marked path must mean someone in TPTB must have planned for this, so probably no penalty? Hopes so...


This is new, right?

Maybe bunching  in the GONDOLA?

First my assumptions about this leg of the race.

1) I orginally thought that they would get their cars in Interlaken and that the long drive would space the teams out. Since we know from the promo last week, that they now fly to Munich and get cars, I don't think they will be spaced out very much. It is just a little over an hour drive from Munich to Ruhpolding.

2) It is late fall in Bavaria. Not a lot different than late fall in the US. I am assuming that you will have high and low pressure systems passing through the area. This will have great effect on the wind directions. So I would certainly thing that OASE and TPTB would know this and plan for this contingency. Therefore I do not think the path down the mountain was an afterthought. All those hills have hiking paths on them. That is a lot of the summer tourist things to do, before snow hits the area. Since we found out last year that WRP uses flip flopping production crews, I would assume that the roadblock bypass, so to speak, was incorporated in the plans, in case it was needed. I would assume they use one of the hiking paths that comes down the south side of the mountain. Linda went north and got lost.

3) I had the same first thought......it would be a 4 hour penalty. But the long walk probably leads to that anyway. So there wouldnt be any penalty assessed.

4) I wondered if maybe the earliest teams there, got favorable wind and flew, and maybe that secondary arrivals got stuck with the wind shift. But seeing Tammy race down the hiking path, now it makes me think that no one flies early.

5) In a race down the mountain with several teams starting at the same time, I would have to give the top spot at getting to the landing area to Kris. Even if they are released from the top in some kind of time interval depending on arrival, I would still think he would get to the landing area first. This could explain how they moved up to top 3 teams at the pit stop. From the looks of the floor at the pie throwing, seems that A/K finish second there.

6) We see Linda suited up for flying standing next to Mel. I have no idea if that is before or after she decides to hike down. I do think that, from the comment by the crew member at the pit stop overheard by the Salzburg blogger, that she went all the way back up to the top and then flew down after the wind shift after Mel.

Who is in the pic in 213. My eyes are terrible. Is it Jamie, Jodi and Luke?

When Linda is standing with Mel, I think Mel says other teams are coming. I'd have to go check that again though..

I assume the Roadblock option is an option made up by TPTB at the spur of the moment. Their saftey comes first so says BVM and I can't see competitive teams willing to take the so called penalty. Mel is going to wait to glide because he cannot walk per pulled groin, he has no option imo.
Maybe Cara & Jamie missed out on the better flight?

Well, remember that Cara & Jamie are presumably in fifth place after the second leg.  My guess is that the first four teams get an earlier flight and Cara & Jamie barely miss the flight!

Tammy and Victor are in first then, in their cake throwing spot, they are standing at the spot where we see loads of left over cream from the cakes used in the Amanda and Kris photo nearer to the judge.

Kris and Amanda = 2nd

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR14/ep2/rff-0081.jpg)

Brad and Victoria are after Margie and Luke, look at the mess that Margie and Luke and Tammy and Victor have created. :funny:

Margie and Luke = 3rd
Brad and Victoria = 4th

I also believe that Cara and Jaime just missed the flight next leg due to the top 4 teams getting on onto the first flight.. so that means they should be in 5th this leg.

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR14/ep2/rff-0017-3.jpg)

Mark and Michael, Kisha and Jen, Christie and Jodi should be competing for 6th, 7th and 8th spots.

I'm more incline to speculate on Mark and Michael 6th, Christie and Jodi 7th and Kisha and Jen 8th.

Mel and Mike should be in 9th? After all the struggling at the Roadblock..

And that leaves Linda and Steve the only team not spotted beyond Leg 2 to be eliminated. (Besides Brad and Victoria, but we all know they are safe)

I agree with your nice summary of the cake order, but it is possible that someone doing the Segways could jump ahead of any of our cake throwers, we don't have a feel for how long that detour takes.

I am also having a hard time with how happy Steve and Linda look in their video, maybe too happy to have just been eliminated? So if Mel and Michael don't get ahead of any of the others, we have to keep in the back of our minds that this could be a NEL as well, although it seems too early.

Also keep in mind that we can't know which teams might have switched detours or if any had which really could have put a team behind given the distance between them.

It is dark and Steve is driving and it's after the cake throwing.  Linda says they have to look for a castle.  Steve says no he thought "he" said cattle barn.  They both think they heard right.

I think Steve & Linda are eliminated.

I think Steve & Linda are eliminated.

When I watched the same video, I kept thinking why they wouldn't just READ the clue again. There is a BIG difference between a castle and a cattle "barn" ( I thought he kept saying cattle "farm"). I am thinking that the clue from the "woodcutters" might be some kind of verbal clue, not written down.

I am like Peach. It could be a NEL, but sure is early for one of those.

Still, Amanda & Kris were speculated to be in the Top 5 during the cakes, so I suspect they'll make it past this leg as well but be eliminated in Romania.  Linda & Steve might be just happy to have made it that far.

While I also think the producers wont have a non elimination at this stage, I actually wished they would.  One we get to see more teams longer, and it throws off our expectations on when we should have one (not to mentions throws off the racers mind set on when they think they have a good chance of being saved by a non elimination.

For the teams if you are now on leg 6 and you think you are last, well in your mind you have to be going oh thank god we have an okay chance of being saved by a non elimination we still have two of those coming up. 

But if the producers throw one out early then thats going to make racers even more frantic and desperate during the last half of the season.

It was on the way to the Roadblock.

So I would guess that this was after the Roadblock.  They are on their way to SchŲnau am KŲnigssee.  And they had been a little lost but are now on the right track.

I think that  this should be   BEFORE the Roadblock.  The highway sign points to Siegsdorf and Ruhpolding the site of the para glide.  If it were after the roadblock, they would be on the side road FROM Ruhpolding headed back to the autobahn and then on through the alps past Berchtesgaden. And the roadsign would not be pointing to the road they are now on.

But it could be as stated that the team made a bad turn when they reached the autobahn and went left instead of right and that they were now on the way back passed the original turnoff spot.

Another thing,  Mel must have waited a long time.  When he lands in the pasture where we have seen other team members waiting bathed in sunlight, the filed is now covered with shadows and the sun is just now sinking below the mountain.  This means it is now late in the afternoon and Mel and Mike have to drive to Schoenau am Konigsee; toss the pies, and then drive to the pit stop in Salzburg.  Are they behind Steve and Linda now?

Chateau has corrected that post,G-man...look back.

We also don't know which Detour they do? They might well choose Segways since we see them riding those in the Intro vids.

Why would teams head back to the autobahn? That road 305 leads almost straight to Schonau am Konigssee. Highway 305 is right by the lower gondola terminal and landing area. It is also the highway where Linda is lost.

I put Ruhpolding, Germany to Konigssee, Germany in GE Driving Directions and the route is straight down 305 away from the autobahn. I guess they could have to go someplace else to get a route marker and have to drive on the autobahn. Do we have any evidence of this? Is 305 a bad road or somethin? It does drive through the mountains.

Title: Re: TAR14 EP2: Your Target Is Your Partnerís Face (Germany)
Post by: Ashe on February 23, 2009, 01:11:54 AM
I thought this was a good episode. Not a great one, as it was clear about halfway through the episode who was toast, but still pretty good.

Tammy & Victor: They really owned the leg tonight. Hell, they reached the Pit Stop long before any of the other nine teams even reached the Detour! They're basically coming across to me like Nick & Starr with actual personalities and not saying the same damn things over and over again! But man, do their voices annoy. A lot.

Mel & Mike: I'd already seen the preview before the season starting of Mel paragliding, so I knew he'd make it through that Roadblock. I find Mel naturally funny, while I think Mike sometimes deliberately hams it up to look funny, when I think he can be naturally like Mike. Their attempt to get into the Pit Stop area was hilarious, though.

Amanda & Kris: Even though it certainly seems like both of them pull their weight, it definitely looks like the editors are trying to make Amanda out to be the less useful person, what with her already leaving the first two Roadblocks to Kris and not having done one yet. That's all I can really say for now, because otherwise, they sort of bore me, though I like them okay.

Margie & Luke: They fell out of first, but they still ran a decent enough leg. I liked the look on their faces when they came in fourth tonight. But please, editors. Don't keep pushing Luke's deafness storyline on us. Let that story arc tell itself.

Brad & Victoria: I have to admit. Victoria's impressed me two legs in a row. She's a gutsy woman! I like seeing her bond with Brad and kicking butt the way they do! They certainly seem very close and like pretty good racers so far, and I hope that continues. They're already reminding me of Bob & Joyce -- old couple who was gone too soon after running some fairly strong legs.

Jaime & Cara: Too bad more of them wasn't shown tonight. But they seemed competent enough at the tasks. Cara certainly kept her eyes out on the Roadblock, and that's really all we got to see of them. (Although a brief glimpse of them at the Bouncing Dolly Detour was seen in their pre-season promo, and Cara wasn't doing so hot in it.) I still like them, though. They're actually my favorite of the three women's teams -- and all the teams, period -- and I hope they can jump up and do better on the next leg.

Kisha & Jen: Not much seen of them on this leg. But it looks like navigation is going to be their weakness. Jen would do well to stand up for herself against Kisha, though. Still, their two low finishes in a row, coupled with their navigation problems, has me thinking they'll be toast fairly early on.

Mark & Michael: Too bad they didn't think of making reservations for themselves on the first flight out of Zurich. They probably could've notched another high finish if they had. Probably. That said, they did well enough with everything else they were given, and I'm glad enough that they stayed in the race.

Christie & Jodi: I like them. But I didn't like their racing on this leg. Christie made a good choice to bail on the paragliding, but she should've moved faster. And both of them really shouldn't have taken the "hoof it" part of the next clue way too literally. Still, good to see them still in, especially considering who that meant would be ousted.

Steve & Linda: I usually want the older couples to last a while, but there's no doubt these two were weak from the beginning (mainly because of Linda) and had no place in the race. Linda really made things bad for them by getting lost in the Alps. Navigation made things worse for them. I felt bad for Steve, as he really seemed to want this a lot, but my happiness of knowing Linda's gone overshadows my sadness for Steve being gone.

Oh, and what I really liked about the Roadblock was that, in some ways, it was a Detour within a Roadblock -- get down the mountain by land or by air. Simply awesome.

The Detour? I'd have done Bouncing Dolly. Like I'd have been able to anticipate the amount of time it'd take to find a cherry-filled cake or pie at Austrian Folly?

LOVE: Tammy/Victor, Mel/Mike, Margie/Luke, Jaime/Cara, Kisha/Jen, Mark/Michael, Christie/Jodi
LIKE: Amanda/Kris, Brad/Victoria
NEUTRAL: No one
DISLIKE: No one
HATE: No one

Wow. Good casting. Only loves and likes here!

Don't know if this has been mentioned already, but it seems like production is telling Margie and Luke which Roadblocks are for which person.

Even though I now know how to spell it--Holzsšger--I still can't find any photos (I had been looking for holzknecht). The locals seemed to know where it was; maybe the vending machine is a portable kiosk that gets rolled out every day.

I loved Phil's reaction to Mel & Mike's efforts to open the gate!   :funny:

I would've done Bouncing Dolly myself -- especially since I wouldn't be "creamed".

from an Interview:

Quote
LINDA: Watching myself come down the hill was a little hard because it doesn't show...CBS only has an hour, but I was on that mountain for four hours and I climbed back, went through fire trails, trying to find my way back, and then I had to come back down, but by that time I was just so frustrated.

This fits with our spoiler that one racer climbed back up....

Same here, especially when we're on a race.. we don't even know if we will get a good place to shower ourselves.. and with the clothings full of cream.. it's really hard to wash those.

I would have taken the other Detour anyday, the Segways seem so much fun bouncing up and down! Too bad what we didn't see is 2 teams just trying to have fun and race with those Segways, would have been funny! :lol:

I don't know if someone already commented on that (if yes I apologize) but there was a mistake early in that leg. Right after the voiceovers of which teams are on the first flight (the Swiss one), they show a plane departing and it's clearly in the paint of the old Swiss airline "Swissair". Swissair doesn't exist anymore (bankruptcy in March 2002). The new airline, "SWISS", was established out of Swissair and a second Swiss airline ("Crossair", much smaller and operating only in Europe while Swissair flew worldwide); taking over planes, infrastructure and persons. To keep up with the flight service, they only painted the planes new over several months so there were still planes flying by "Swissair" when they were in reality "SWISS". (Makes sense?  :lol:) However, if I'm not mistaken the last plane was painted new in summer 2004.

My guess would be that the "Swissair" plane shown was filmed during the 3rd season - in leg 10, when they flew out from Geneva. That took place in Summer of 2002, so it's possible "SWISS" was still flying with planes in the old paint.

cba, I believe that your information is incomplete. Yes, Swiss Air is out of business and acquired by Luthansa. However, the new version is named Swiss International Airlines Ltd., either Swiss (which is really an adjective and not an airline) or Swiss Air for short, so what's the problem here?

If you type "swissair.com" which I did for my recap, you get Swiss International Air's website and it still named, "Swissair".

Noone uses "Swiss International Airlines (Ltd.)" . They don't even say it when welcoming you on board (at least they didn't when I was there). The short name commonly used is "Swiss" (and there were lots of controversies when the name was revealed cause they payed a lot of money to a high-profile PR firm to come up with it and everyone agreed that "Swiss" isn't really that original). Swiss Air is not used, mostly because many still talk about the old airline so it could be confusing and it's surely not used in any printed media or even merchandise, since Swissair (in early times even sometimes written Swiss Air to add to the confusion) was a joint stock company and there's still creditors (companys and private persons) that could sue anyone for money made with "Swiss Air" or "Swissair". And as you see, the big bold letters you can read from far on the plane is just "Swiss", without any added "air" or anything else.

My information is based on my father's information. He's worked for Swissair and later Swiss 1968 until his retirement in 2007.

There's no problem. I just noticed an error - that the plane shot was made several years ago - and wanted to let you guys know about it. :)

I have a feeling they use a lot of canned takeoff and landing shots.  It's great that cba has proved a solid example.
