Being in MST, it'll start just in time in my timezone. ;D

Happy Easter, folks!

Don't rub it in, Ashe. :P

But yes, The Masters will delay things here in the Eastern and Central time zones. I suspect with the Green Jacket ceremony, expect TAR to begin somewhere between 8:10 - 8:20 p.m. It will be later if the top golfers are tied. Then we go to a sudden death playoff and all bets are off.

I'm watching Sportscenter on ESPN right now and they just said that there is a 3 way playoff at the Masters. So the dealy might be longer than expected tonight.

Please remember that if you view TAR elsewhere at its scheduled time such as Canada or Channel 5 .. whatever .. please do not post updates here until we, here, at the forum watch it as we like to watch together and do not want to know the outcome ahead of time. :angel:

And Ashe :chillpill: please ..

The Masters was over about 720pm and commercials are underway. Who knows how long CBS is going to milk it?

I have to guess 845pm as the AR14 start time.
Title: Re: Episode 8: East Coast live show updates and commentary
Post by: apskip on April 12, 2009, 06:38:03 PM
CBS always waits for the presentation of the Green Jacket and 60 Minutes started at 738 pm. That makes it clear when AR14 will begin.

Augusta must have a lot of pull! Not one TAR or Survivor commercial or any of those sport promo inserts the whole time the Masters aired all weekend.

And pretty doesn't begin to describe a Georgia spring. My own neighborhood looks just about as pretty as the Masters course, all the azaleas and dogwoods are gorgeous right now!

I saw part of a Survivor commercial today around 145-200 as I was resetting my Mom's VCR clocks...

PREVIOUSLY ON .. THE AMAZING RACE:

Phil: Six teams raced from Jaipur India to Phuket Thailand. Teams took a walk on the wild side in the zoo. Jaime's temper flared. Mark/Michael thought they won the leg, but incurred 2 30-minute penalties which cost them the leg victory. Margie, hot, collapsed at the mat. Margie recovered, and in the end, Mel/Mike fell short and were eliminated. Coming tonight, Kisha/Jen on a boat notice they are missing a pack, with their passports and everything. Phil: "A costly mistake."


Credits roll.

Tammy and Victors depart time was 9:37pm and Jamie & Caras was almost 3 hours later

Post by: mswood on April 12, 2009, 07:46:07 PM
Phil: This is Phuket, Thailand. This island has been inhabited since 100 BC. Devastated in 2004 by the tsunami, it has reborn into a commercial center. This Buddhist Temple, the 7th pitstop in a Race around the world.

Tammy/Victor, 9:27 pm, CLUE. Fly to Bangkok.
Phil: Fly over 400 miles. Land, travel by taxi to the outskirts. Go to this boat yard, and search the grounds for the next clue.

NVM! Hello mswood!!!!!! and thank you!!

Tammy and Victors depart time was 9:37pm and Jamie & Caras was almost 3 hours later

I thought Mark/Michael were the first team to arrive last leg and only had one hour of penalties. Why did they leave 3 hours later?
Title: Re: EP 8:East Coast live show updates and commentary *with a 39 minute delay*
Post by: mswood on April 12, 2009, 07:47:25 PM
Tammy conf: You can go from first to last so fast in this game!


Jaime/Cara, 12:31 am, depart and ask if it's an "OFFICIAL" taxi they're standing next to.
Jaime conf: The language barrier frustrates me, and I become a lunatic. Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde.

Mark/Michael, 12:46 am.
Phil recraps the previous ep's penalty issues.
Conf: We DO have what it takes to be there at the end! (As long as we don't shoot ourselves in the foot!)


Tammy/Vic arrive at the airport info desk.
They borrow the clerk's phone to make reservations. First flight out is 7:25 (am)
Sorry, can't make the reservation until 6 am.

Margie/Luke leave next.
Luke signs that he is worried about Mom, doesn't want her to faint again.

Kisha/Jen leave 1:05 am.

Those times can't be right.  I would guess they screwed up Tammy & Victors by 3 hours.

On a few occasions they have screwed up their on screen info.

Assume that Tammy & Victor actually had a time of 12:27.

Full moon.
Dawn.
All fivve teams find themselves on the same flight.

EQUALIZED!

BANGKOK.
Plane lands.
Race to the taxis.
Teams tell their taxi drivers "You have to get there before them!"
Margie/Luke follow Kisha/Jen's cab.
Kisha: If you don't know where you're going, ask directions.
Their cabbie asks directions from another local.  
(And he's a cabbie!?)
Cabbie: Yeah. I go to talk. Okay.
Margie/Luke's cab also get directions from men alongside the road.
They think they know and Kisha/Jen's cab does NOT know where they are going.
They were right.
The Kisha/Jen cabbie again asks directions.
He gets out.
He gets back in.
Kisha is holding it together better than I would at this point!

BOAT YARD.
Margie/Luke first to arrive, CLUE: ROADBLOCK.
Who's ready to propel their team forward?
Phil: Must tap into mechanical ability. The long tailed boat. Figure out how to attach a rod and propeller the right way. When it's working properly the team gets their next CLUE.
Margie volunteers.
Luke shouts encouragement.

Margie's DONE!
Margie/Luke, CLUE, "Journey on."
Phil: Navigate your boat through the Bangkok Canal, using the map to locate the Peninsula Pier for the next clue.

Jaime is working feverishly on her propeller.

Tammy/Vic and Mark/Micheal arrive next.
No sign of Kisha/Jen.

Jamie's done. Jaime/Cara need to go back and get their bags.
Their driver almost left the dock before they could get the bags.
The DEITIES OF FORESHADOWING have spoken as Kisha/Jen arrive.
Victor's almost done.
Mark's almost done.
Kisha starts on her propeller.
Vic: SHOOT!
Jaime/Cara leave.
Great camera work, as Margie/Luke's journey is shared with us.
Mark/Michael are done, but they realize they have to come back and get their bags.
Tammy tells Vic to hurry.
Kisha/Jen finish, and their boat leaves. But their stuff is still on the dock.
Kisha: Even my shoes! Everybody's stuff is over there!
Vic's done. Tammy/Vic are ready to leave.

Vic reworks his propeller.
He thinks he's got it tight enough this time.
The boatsman nods his approval.
They leave in last place. They ask if they can please go back NOW and get their stuff.
That leaves Kisha/Jen's stuff still on the dock, and perhaps Mark/Michael's too. Margie/Luke I'm not sure.

Michael: We'll have to go back and get our bags. Ever think about that?
Kisha: Our packs!
Jen: Back on the dock. Omigod, we have to go back. We need it! Our passports and stuff are in there!
Jen wants to go back NOW and get the packs.
Jen doesn't "cause a confrontation."
Kisha doesn't want to go back NOW. She wants to do the clue first, then go back for the bags. She hopes it'll work out.
Jen mopes.

Margie/Luke, CLUE: DETOUR.
Broken teeth, or broken record?
Phil: Broken teeth, teams make their way to the 'street of happy smiles', search thru 50 sets of dentures for matches of 5 patients waiting. When they get the correct dentures, next CLUE. Rooting around in people mouths, but might go quickly.
Broken record, make way to parking lot, find taxi equipped with onboard Karaoke system. A well known Thai pop video for 5 mile course. Nothing unpleasant, might be fun, but no control over the traffic.

Mark/Michael get their DETOUR clue, but realize they have no packs.
Margie/Luke have their packs and proceed to the Dentist.
Kisha/Jen offer to do broken record. Jen: I'm extremely worried about our stuff! They get in a cab.
Vic: I'm SO glad we brought our bags! We'll do Karaoke! We're Chinese! We have to do Karaoke!
Jaime/Cara notice that the water in the streets is up to the middle of hubcaps of the taxi!

Running on the street, Mark/Michael argue about whether to get bags first, or do the task first. They only have enough money for 1 cab ride. Argument ensues.

In a cab, Kisha/Jen not arguing, but Jen is being very pointed about her concerns.

Margie's first pt spits out the denture. No fit.
Margie: Top only!
Woman: NO!
Luke tries.
Second Woman: NO!
Margie: This is hard!  
Jaime suffers a meltdown when the cabbie doesn't know where he's going.  

Mark/Michael get creative and ask to use a phone, so that their bags can be BROUGHT by the cab company to where they are.
Another argument ensues.
Conf: We had important stuff in our bags. Plus, I brought along some mementos that were not replacable.  

Kisha/Jen still haven't put the issue aside, but are ready to party.
Jaime/Cara arrive next.
Kisha/Jen's karaoke taxi take off.
Jaime/Cara tell their driver to "beat them! It's a RAACCCE!"
Everybody grab a microphone!
Watch the video!
Scenes of Racers singing in the cabs.
Tammy/Vic get in a Karaoke cab and both sing.

Mark/Michael still trying to see if they can have their bags brought.
Now they negotiate for "200" fare to go back to the bags.
They will THEN have to make their way to 'Chinatown.'
They disagree on whether to finish the leg, or go back and get the bags.
But they get in a cab. And more arguing ensues.
Both talking at once, both nasty.
Both frowny faced.
Both pissed.

COMMERCIAL.

Margie/Luke have 3 out of 5 now.
Four sets of dentures!
Margie has "a nursing background."
Five!

Margie/Luke, CLUE: Make your way to the pitstop.
Phil: Phya Thai Palace. Last team to check in may be eliminated.

Well it will certainly be interesting if CBS tells us why T/V got a 3 hour time credit, when they were on the mat with J/C in Phuket.
DO we here them say they got a time credit, because honestly I would assume just a typo (its happened several times before).

Jen wants to know whether the partygoers in the taxi are trannies.
Apparently ... yes.   
Jaime/Cara don't seem to notice ... yet. They're having fun.
Tammy conf: The partiers in our taxi were very fun, very encouraging!
(The music goes DOINGGGG, meaning they missed the trannies!)


Local man with a greenish parrot on his shoulder: Welcome to Bangkok, Thailand.
Phil: Margie/Luke, you are team #1!
Both: WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Phil: Tammy/Victor, you are now team #3. Congratulations.
Kisha/Jen actually get back in the same cab, I think!
Jen conf: Our assumption was that we had to take the boat back to where we got it. But now we have a lot of regrets.

Mark/Michael don't have enough money for their cab ride, either.
They offer flashlight, compass ...
They get into the karaoke taxi!
It's very late in the afternoon now. Traffic seems to have subsided.
Kisha/Jen find the Roadblock site and run to get their bags.
Michael and Mark like "the pretty local girls. We can have a good time!"

So this season, apparently no penalties for taking private transportation (as far as I can see)... no using personal possessions to settle bills.

And BVM is making up time as he goes along (but he did that last season too).

That is actually a long standing rule, no one is allowed to sell or trade their own possessions, otherwise everyone would come with a few expensive watches to trade. They ARE, however, allowed to sell or trade items they buy along the way with race $$, so if you are cunning, you might be able to buy something along the way that would be useful.

Mark & Michael are officially idiots of the first order!  This is going to kill them in the next leg!

As for LaKisha & Jen getting no penalty -- they didn't pay with their possessions.  They didn't pay at all, in fact.  No team's supposed to sell or trade their own possessions and LaKisha & Jen didn't do that -- but Mark & Michael did, hence the 2 two-hour penalties!

I lost my internet


Mark/Michael finish Karaoke and get a taxi.
But they have only 200 and the fare is 300.
They negotiate and barter again.

Two teams in taxis.
Kisha/Jen are very glum, although trying to stay calm.
Mark/Michael "had a ball in the Karaoke."
The last team may be Philiminated.


Kisha: Never leave your fanny pack. You never know what's ahead.
Mark offers "gifts" in place of money.

Phil: Mark/Micheal, you are the fourth team to arrive. However, I understand you broke a Race rule, by using personal possessions to settle a bill. A 2-hour penalty. You have done that twice. The total penalties are 4 hours, starting NOW. Wait until I check you in.


Phil: Kisha/Jen ...
Jen: We're the last team to arrive.
Phil: You are actually the 4th team to arrive.
Jen starts to cry.
Kisha does, too.
Phil: Thought you were out, huh?
Kisha: Tough day.
Jen: Our fate, we leave it up to God. We belong in this Race. Some folks get lucky, some don't. We take it one day at a time.

Phil: Mark/Michael, I can check you in now. You are the last team to arrive. Good news, this is a non-elimination leg, and you are still in the Race. The remainder of your penalty is added to your release time. Plus, a Speed Bump that your team must complete. You've got a long way back, guys.
Michael: In the land of Buddha, I didn't want to create bad Karma.
Mark: As long as our names are on the pit start, we're gonna play to the best of our ability.

NEXT TIME ON .. THE AMAZING RACE:

Phil: Jen battles Luke.
At a cluebox, a little wrestling! Bumping! Shoving!
Jen: BITCH!


Phil: ... and Luke battles Jen!
Another cluebox. Luke knocks into Jen, colliding with her shoulder, hard. She goes flying.
Phil: Leading to a confrontation you won't want to miss!
Margie: She called him a bitch!
Jen: I called him a bitch because that was a bitch move!

But I do believe there may have been some penalties this season for riding in private transport, had Steve/Linda not been elim'd I think they would have received one.

Yet another exciting episode.  Here are my thoughts:

The Broken Teeth Detour seemed to be the easier one, if done right.  But I'd have probably been scared into the Broken Record Detour due to how luck-based it sounded.  At least the karaoke was straightforward.

The Roadblock?  I'd have had a partner do it.  I'm not a handyman at all.

The teams:

Margie & Luke: Very good leg.  Margie turned it out at the Roadblock and the Detour, and she was the primary reason they won the leg.  That's three legs for them now, tying them with Ronald & Christina for most legs won by a parent/child team.

Jaime & Cara: Jaime, CALM DOWN!  Not all locals can speak English!  And you even seem to have a problem with the ones that do!  Oh, well.  Thanks for at least being self-aware enough to admit you turn into a "lunatic" when the language barrier rears it ugly head.  Cara, you're still a lovely, lovely person.  Don't ever change.  Ever.  Smart move going back for your bags immediately, and congrats on second place.  Well done, ladies.

Tammy & Victor: At this point, their edit is screaming fourth-place-finishers or winners with their "always happy, happy, happy!" edit.  That said, they ran a decent leg, though Victor could've ruined it for them due to the shoddy propellor work.  Little did he know, Kisha & Jen and Mark & Michael would make even bigger errors. . . .

Kisha & Jen: Whew!  Don't ever scare me like that again, girls!  You did all your tasks well, but next time someone suggests going back for the bags, GO BACK FOR THE DAMN BAGS!  Just in case, of course.  You're very lucky Mark & Michael not only made the same mistake, but made an even worse one.  Step it up, ladies!

Mark & Michael: Forgot your bags at the Roadblock?  Strike one.  Bartered items in lieu of cab fare?  Strike two (though I admittedly didn't know it was against the rules).  Did it yet again?  Strike three!  I was surprised you got a penalty THAT hefty, but I'm glad, too, as it saved Kisha & Jen!  Now I can only hope you don't overcome the Speed Bump next week.  Being over three hours behind everyone else, you'd better hope for an overnight bunching point, or you guys are so toast.

Very suspenseful episode.  But I'm gonna go ahead and call Mark & Michael being out next week.  They just don't have it in them to overcome that Speed Bump unless they get really, really lucky.

As for my team feelings:

LOVE: Margie/Luke, Jaime/Cara, Tammy, Kisha/Jen
LIKE: No one
NEUTRAL: Victor
DISLIKE: Mark/Michael
HATE: No one

Next week's Luke/Jen drama?  Looks exciting!  This might pinpoint the true villain of the whole race, depending on whom the editors try to make look right.  Can't wait!

It looks more to me that Luke's given that shady "bitchy" villain edit. It started in the U-TURN, and in Leg 5, now in China - possibly the worst. But hey, we now have an alternative with Ron/Christina. The strongest parent/child teams and the individuals making up those teams are complete polar opposites!

Just what does this have to do with anything? I don't think it's on topic.

Anyway, to the episode. It was a great one for me, filled with uncertainty and a sense that anything could happen. I'm so glad that feeling is back from its long 2 season vacation!

Margie & Luke: Ran a solid leg and checked in first. I realized that when they weren't coming in fourth that they would finish first, but they did really well this leg. Next leg, beware of Luke's dark side. :ascared

Jaime & Cara: They got the biggest edit out of the first three teams, and we saw more of Jaimeís problems with foreigners. Not a whole lot of new stuff but they ran a decent leg. Once again they looked like they were working far harder than T&V and M&L, who looked like they were just breezing right through.

Tammy & Victor: They are in the most advantageous spots each time, conveniently being allowed to pass teams that get penalties. They were likeable this episode though, and they might just be turning around for me.

Kisha & Jen: Problems! They made a bad decision not to go back and it cost them so much time. They would have been last if it werenít for M&M. Apart from the bag problems, they ran a decent leg, though. Iím glad theyíre hanging in there and still defying the odds though!

Mark & Michael: I canít believe they got another penalty! Iím beginning to think the producers really donít like them or something. At least thatís what I thought until I saw that the Additional Info said not to bargain with taxi drivers on this leg. I just canít believe that they did it on the one leg where it wasnít allowed, though!

It looks more to me that Luke's given that shady "bitchy" villain edit. It started in the U-TURN, and in Leg 5, now in China - possibly the worst. But hey, we now have an alternative with Ron/Christina. The strongest parent/child teams and the individuals making up those teams are complete polar opposites!
Mooyou, not so in my opinion, because the strongest parent/child team I've ever seen is Toni/Dallas. If not for the loss of their pouch In Moscow, they would have finished first, second or third in  Portland. They are not polar oppsites at all. I also disagree with you about Margie and Luke. I do not consider them polar opposites. Luke is inflammatory and Margie not so but on many other dimensions they are compatible.

Here's my comments on the teams:

Margie & Luke:  Wow, you had a really good leg this time!  And you did everything right -- except maybe the Detour choice.  Unfortunately, things might not go so well for you next leg.

Cara & Jamie:  Please find a way to calm down, Jamie.  Still, you're self-aware enough to realize that this is happening, so that's something.  And you two were smart enough to grab your bags while there was still time.  Nice job!

Tammy & Victor:  You didn't do a great job on the Roadblock, Victor, but you made up for it because LaKisha & Jen and Mark & Michael made huge mistakes and you kept your possessions.

LaKisha & Jen:  One of the big rules of the Race says you have to take care of your possessions.  You didn't do so, and nearly paid for it.

Mark & Michael:  And the reason why the sisters didn't pay for it was because you not only ignored that rule, but you didn't follow directions and got 2 2-hour penalties!  Idiots.

Really Like:  Cara, Margie, Tammy
Like:  LaKisha & Jen, Jamie, Luke and Victor
Neutral:  Mark & Michael

It just came to my mind that Tammy/Victor may be the luckiest team in TAR history - luckier than Dandrew as of the 8th leg.

They may have had jumped up one place in the last two legs due to Mark & Michael's time penalties, but it's not like they were saved from elimination. The only time they were saved was when Brad & Victoria gambled and lost on a connection.

I would say Tammy & Victor have created their own luck or misfortune. They're a strong team.

No, actually I think Mark & Michael are the luckiest team in TAR history -- or will be before Guillin.  Tammy & Victor has moved up places due to Mark & Michael's time penalties and LaKisha & Jen's error, but they were never really in danger of elimination those times.  As TARAsia pointed out, they only got spared once, when Brad & Victoria gambled on a connection and lost.  Mark & Michael were much closer to being Philiminated than Tammy & Victor ever were.

I dare to disagree, I think they made the right choice, maybe it wasn't the funny detour, but I do think it was faster and also the one that relied less on luck, although I would've loved seeing Luke trying to do Karaoke :lol:

I second that. Margie/Luke's judgment to do the DETOUR in Bangkok of Broken Teeth was excellent. They stayed in first place they got on arrival out of the airport by doing so and kept first with the ROADBLOCK. The DETOUR probably increased their diffferential vs. the seocnd place team.

For sure they picked the right detour! Phil sais in his blog it took Marge 5 minutes to do the teeth. He also notes the RB boat ride was 45 minutes so it will be interesting to see what time they checked in.
I can't make out Phil's watch .......12:45 9:00?

It looks like 1115am to me, which is consistent with departure from the airport at 920am, a taxi ride to the boatyard of maybe 30 minutes, 10 minutes for Margie on the Roadblock, 45 minutes taking the long-tailed boat to Peninsula Pier, 5 minutes for that DETOUR, and not more than 25 minutes to the pit stop.

As has been discussed in this thread, it does appear that the PitStart time for Victor/Tammy was the result of some sort of editing error.  :tup:

11:15 could be it  :tup:  .. or 11:45

I'd lean towards 11:45. When M/L are approaching the palace, the taxi driver's watch can be seen: it looks like 11:35.

Really?  How do you figure?

Why? They're either completely first, passing all other teams, or get extremely lucky that other teams bumbled themselves (Brad/Victoria, Mark/Michael, Kisha and Jen) Had these three teams be able to compete with each other minus all the other errors, we might be watching a different final five right now.  :lol:

^^Well Mooyou, it won't be that different since two of the 3 you mentioned could've done better are in the Final 5.

PS: I already posted this on Survivor Sucks (sorry if someone else already did), but I think here's the video the teams sang to at the Detour.

I'm going to say they are one of the luckiest teams. They did avoid the strong team 9th place elimination, after all! (:;) Which is something I've rarely seen before.

Indeed, the way they always break waaaay out ahead of everyone else is becoming very annoying. :groan:
