TVGuide doesn't have the title either, I'm not sure why. Only CBS released it.

Nuts and bullets could refer to a task. Anybody got any ideas?
Title: Re: TAR 17 Ep 9 There's a lot of Nuts and Bullets (Bangladesh)
Post by: Zvarri on November 08, 2010, 09:38:45 AM
I think the title comes from someone making a mistake calling it "nuts and bullets" when the correct term is actually "nuts and bolts." A quote from Team Tattoo maybe?  :lol:

I am thinking some other team besides Nick and Vicki.  At least N&V should know what "nuts and bolts" are...

My guess would be that J/T might UTurn C/S..they seem to have a rivalry going...as per Steph comment re them weaseling in..

I think you are right but N/V probably do U-turn B/C. We'll need to study the caps to make sure.

Jill and Thomas are holding 2 cards...one has themselves, the other I can't see. They put one back...

Nick and Vic are holding their own I believe, and put it back too. :lol: Can't see who they choose in the caps...

I have an iPad so I zoomed in cap 17 and I am 99% sure the picture Jill is holding is their own picture + if u think about it this is a smaller picture and the team that uses the u- turn puts a smaller picture.

Here's wishing that Brook and Claire is ahead of them so that it won't be used. (Okay, this is now specs. Sorry)

Why would the 2nd team, U-turn the same team that has already been U-turned? That really doesnt make much sense. Well, unless it is a three-sided detour.

Seeing they were U-Turned, wouldn't it make sense for Brooke and Claire to then U-Turn somebody else to keep themselves alive? (If they are U-Turned, which is what it looks like to me)

On a lighter side, it looks like at least one team will finally survive being U-Turned. Hoorah!

It's probably N/V that U-turn B/C. J/T hate C/S now and they looked like they were doing a "hate U-turn" by their expressions. From the way they act and what Nick said they are doing a "whoever is behind us U-turn."

No, Jill & Thomas U-Turn Brook & Claire.  Their picture is already up on the board by the time Nick & Vicki are choosing their own victims.

I actually think that there are two team pics up on the board. The first one could be B/C but there is another on the right. Vicki is taking out her picture to put up there as the U-turner.

Whenever the race starts building up one of those rivalry storylines in the previous leg, it is usually a precursor to the U-turn.

Here's a blown up copy of #18 so you can see what I mean.

I think so, the clue box is open did he already get that clue? The team has to complete the detour themselves before they can U-turn, it makes sense that a RI could be next.

It is possible that B\C could U-Turn somebdoy else after being U-Turned themselves. However, I still think that J\T U-turn C\S. Look at the initial photos of the teams on cbs.com. Chad also wore a pink shirt.

Wow double U-Turn! So it looks like Nick and Vicki U-Turned Brook and Claire. =( I'm thinking that Jill and Thomas U-Turn Chad and Stephanie. After Leg 8 where both teams were battling for first place... Perhaps both teams have a rivalry that hasn't been obviously shown.

Actually Jill is holding her own picture to put in on the board as a U-turner. But I do think they do Chad and Stephanie. In cap 18 is there any way to tell who is in the picture on the right?

Best I can do with what they teased us with. Vickie picks their photo up and puts it back in the box.

I actually can't see why Thomas & Jill would U-Turn Brook & Claire over Chad & Stephanie after last night. The way I see it, they U-Turn Chad & Stephanie and because Brook & Claire are behind them, Nick & Vicki decide to use their U-Turn on Brook & Claire. The picture we see of Vicki holding her team card may be her picking it up, not putting it back.

I honestly can't tell either, it looks like the team member on the right in the left picture is wearing pink pants. It's very difficult to see any of the right picture.

It seems like Nick and Vicki are arguing about who to U-turn, I wonder if they change what Vicki has already put up there.

Nuff with the U-Turn, y'all. :lol:

Hmm, I remember there was one user here in RFF who lives in Bangladesh. She might help us in ID'ing the locations, right? (But I think I haven't seen her for a while though) :(

Guys, I think this is the most logical U-TURN explanation i can think of, YET.

(http://i56.[banned image hosting site].com/2uj1e83.jpg)

See the U-TURN (1) and U-TURN (2) and then another COURTESY OF (2) on the photo above?

So this means ->

U-TURN (1) is a BLIND U-TURN, don't need to put up COURTESY OF photo

Hence,
Jill and Thomas U-TURN Brooke and Claire

Then Nick and Vicki arrived, with Brooke and Claire's photo on and decided to U-TURN (Chad and Stephanie?), but as the second U-TURN is a NORMAL U-TURN, they have to put their photo up.

Hmm, don't know if i'm right.

Considering that we saw Jill & Thomas have a rivalry with Chad & Stephanie and Nick & Vicki have a rivalry with Brook & Claire, my guess is that Nick & Vicki U-Turn Brook & Claire while Jill & Thomas U-Turn Chad & Stephanie.  Don't know which use of a U-Turn comes first, however.

I've been reading this entire thing and just wondering. For all you know Jill and Thomas could have U Turned Brooke and Claire just by simply seeing them close by. At that point you know atleast you hit someone with one. We can see that when Jill and Thomas get to the U turn it's empty and when Nick and Vicki get there Brooke and claire are up so I'd assume Jill and Thomas turned Brooke and Claire.

The only few explanations i can think of -

2. They're dumb and didn't realise they didn't have to put their COURTESY OF photo up
3. I'm wrong and it's not a Blind U-TURN

But then how come there's no (1) Courtesy Of photo up??

Well, definitely not a Blind U-Turn, you can seen Jill & Thomas courtesy off picture, besides B/S.

The assessment of C/S dropping from 1st to last here will probably happen and they'll probably be U-turned by N/V.

Just some speculation.

J/T, B/S will probably be on top part of the pack, hence Jill and Thomas deciding to U-Turn them, not just to make them mad, but to give them edge to the game.

Probably due to some mistake C/S will have dropped to the bottom pack and N/V will be neck by neck with them during Detour. N/V U-turn will then probably cause the elimination of Chad and Stephanie.

I know i know, Jill and Thomas's photo is up. I know.

(http://i56.[banned image hosting site].com/2uj1e83.jpg)

I'm talking about the one i uploaded. Where is the COURTESY OF photo space that is supposed to place the first team who uses the U-TURN? That was why i came to a conclusion that Jill and Thomas's U-TURN might be a Blind U-TURN after all?

And it would be disturbing to watch them put up their own COURTESY OF photo to piss off Brooke and Claire just because they felt cocky doing it if it's a Blind U-TURN after all. Definitely hope not!!

If you look really closely, you can see the smaller "1" on the black to the left of the faintly outlined larger box with a "1", and above the faintly outlined smaller box with a "2".

The space outlined for the smaller one is completely on the black of the arrow, so it is impossible to see a box outline; but the smaller "1" is there.

Could it be that Jill & Thomas arived first and decided to U-Turn Brooke and Claire..

Nick and Vicky arrive 2nd and decide not to U-Turn anybody (just say they realize that Brook and Claire are right behind them, so they decide to put their own photo back in the box and continue racing without worrying about pissing any teams off, knowing that Brooke and Claire would U-Turn another team because it would be the only GUARANTEE that they still have a shot staying in the race).

Brooke and Claire than arrive 3rd and decide to U-Turn Chad and Stephanie.. They have an alliance/friendship with Nat and Kat so it would be the only logical choice left.

Than it wouldn't matter whether Nat and Kat arrived next or Chad and Stephanie.

Nat and Kat could also possibly U-Turn Chad and Stephanie if they realize Brooke and Claire are in trouble..

Who knows.. just some ideas.. not sure if they could really be possible or not.

The pictures used on the U-Turn board are usually the same ones posted on the CBS site.

http://www.cbs.com/primetime/amazing_race/

Based on the CBS pictures, only 2 teams have on pink - Brooke/Claire & Chad/Stephanie.  It could be either team because the angle on the sign is so poor.

no, there are brook and claire, because in photo of Chad and Stephany, Stephany stands in right side and in that picture (in u-turn) theres a blond girl in left side

Post by: DrRox on November 15, 2010, 03:29:35 PM
Those pre-race photos are always significant. Thats how the teams are supposed to sit in vehicles if they are in the same seat and how they stand on the mat. Even the teams at ES sit in the same order. Jill/Thomas and Chad/Stephanie were posed differently so the crew can tell them apart.....both are young couples with dark haired men and blonde women.

Just a reminder, the pics in the box on the U turn stand are pics of teams to be U turned, ie The U-turned. The pics of the U-turners are given to the teams at the start line in the Amazing Race documents travel pouch. If they lose the little pic, then they cannont U-turn anyone. I remember a few races back that we couldnt understand why a team didnt use the U-turn.....after the race was over, we found out that they had lost their little pic.

It seems that production this year has been pretty lax in making them sit that way.......ie, Nat and Kat reversed in the taxi in this episode. I think Nat is just so used to getting in the cab first......and didnt think about them driving on the left hand side of the road in Bangladesh.

The teams that are looking at the pics, have already finished the detour and that other clue box is the next route marker. I think Jill is reading the extra detour clues to find out exactly what they are supposed to do at the double U turn. They have to finish with the U turn box before they can go to the next route info box.
Title: Re: TAR 17 Ep 9 There's a lot of Nuts and Bullets (Bangladesh)
Post by: Prophet on November 15, 2010, 04:48:58 PM
So they are definitely not allowed to get the next clue before finishing the U-turn? That makes sense but why is the clue box open?

Another thought is that the team that is U-turned first would not U-turn someone else because they probably have to finish the other detour task first.

(My last comment about the U-Turn x 2. :lol:)

I believe the editors gave us a foreshadow about what's to come in the U-turn. My cents is to Jill and Thomas U-Turning Chad and Stephanie, for "stealing their first place", while Nick and Vicki (esp Nick) bummed to see Brook and Claire in last leg and hence, they U-Turn them. (Please don't comment. :neener:)

(Okay, I'm nuff with this U-Turn, can we just make a new thread for this U-turn because, I bet, this thread is just gonna be full of U-Turn speculation and ideas. :lol:)

I still had TAR on my DVR, so I checked the coming attractions and the small box with a 1 is clearly visible just to the side of the large box with a 1.  Unfortunately, the small box is entirely within the black arrow and barely visible.  So 2 regular U-turns.  J/T > B/C, but I couldn't tell if or who N/V U-Turn.

The background of the quick Brooke and Claire pose is a pink tree behind Brooke. They're getting UTurned by Jill and Thomas.

The background behind Nat and Kat's title shot is OR monitors/equipment and it's grayish blue.

Hey there everyone!

Hmm...posting here after a very long time and I usually don't visit the spoilers section but the TAR finally visited my country and the gracious peach asked me so how could I not!

Coming to the main point, you guys are gonna be so disappointed that I don't have much to add because I'm not a resident of Dhaka so I wont be that much help recognizing the locations. Shame on me :( But I do have a very good friend in Dhaka and I'll ask him to drop by and see if he can help!

Okay, the first shot looks like the place Gulistan. I think the places shown are around Gulistan Bazar and that shot where Brooke & Claire are asking a rickshawala is around Gulistan cinema hall. I'm not completely sure though. These are actually parts of the Old Dhaka or 'Puran Dhaka' as we call it. God bless them if they really went to Gulistan because its the HQ of pickpocketers!

And Cocoa you're absolutely right about the river. It has to be the Buriganga river and guessing from the quantity of launches and boats nearby, it must the Sadar Ghat.

About that marked rickshaw, yes it has to be marked if the teams are on it because there's no way of telling two rickshaws apart in a place like Gulistan. And I think there is a task where the teams has to use a rickshaw because you can't come to Bangladesh and not ride a rickshaw, just riding it in the main streets of Dhaka/Chittagong could be a task in itself! And I'm pretty sure there's gonna be no self driving cause an American driver is quiet unlikely to survive the streets of Bangladesh!

Thats all I can think of now! Sorry that I was a bit of a let‐down guys!

I actually think that a Double U-Turn is a good element to the game. Rather than just having one poor team do two Detours leaving them little hope to catch up, it's good to have two teams battling it out. At least one of the two teams still has some hope and motivation to catch up. So I can't wait to see how this new twist plays out! Hee.

Using Photoshop and the "Curves" magic, I have found the elusive first courtesy space.

Exactly where I said it was.  My good eye must have really benefited from the cataract surgery last month. :)

I still had TAR on my DVR, so I checked the coming attractions and the small box with a 1 is clearly visible just to the side of the large box with a 1.  Unfortunately, the small box is entirely within the black arrow and barely visible.  So 2 regular U-turns.  J/T > B/C, but I couldn't tell if or who N/V U-Turn.

Okay i need to go get a pair of specs or what cause i really don't see it. But whatever it is, i am sure all of you see it and 2 regular U-TURNs it is! :tup:

I have a 46" HDTV so that helped a lot in seeing the small black box inside the LARGE black arrow.  Plus, I freeze framed it to really check.  Otherwise, I can see how the little box for the 1 might be missed.

Here's the bottom line on the U-turn business: we know that Chad and Stephanie get U-turned because we know that if someone is eliminated this time it is them.

I agree -- Brook & Claire and Chad & Stephanie get the U-Turn with either Chad & Stephanie going out or it being an NEL.

I've kinda always lurked here and find it amazing how you all can find all this stuff! With a double U-Turn though I kind of think it's going to be a double leg instead of a NEL.

keep up the good work because it's fantastic!

Won't be a double leg; Phil stated there would be 12 legs on this Race at the start line, and CBS has already confirmed the finale is one hour on December 12th, with regular length episodes each Sunday until then.

There's no room for a double-length (or uber) leg this time.

I can't quite figure how that loom like machine and the drinking task go together. I know they do because Chad is drinking in front of the device. Because it is in Bangladesh I have to wonder if that task has something to do with jute, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jute#History, what do you think?

Also the teams seen on the boats are the ones doing that task which probably means those cans Chad is carrying goes with it too. There seem to be a lot of steps to that task that I cannot seem to connect.

Time consuming detour choices with a U-Turn totally makes sense; having such detour tasks with two teams U-Turned makes even more sense.

Re: U-Turn photos....

-Nick does wear a white muscle shirt (aka wifebeater) in the first episode during their interview, plus on the photo, it looks like a tattooed arm on the right side of what would be Vicki.
-Brook & Claire both have pink shirts on, sans Claire's denim jacket.
-Nat & Kat are only seen in scrubs, so I don't know how they would handle that unless they use the cast photo from CBS.
-Chad doesn't have a pink shirt on during the first episode interviews, it was a darker blue.

(Yes, I do tape TAR onto dvds  :lol: )


Who U-Turns who....could we all be over-analyzing the event? We know that B/C & N/K do hang out together like BFFs. That leaves the three other teams to possibly buddy-up and/or conspire. J/T dislike C/S, so J/T could commiserate with N/V where N/V would tell them how they dislike B/C, and vice-versa with J/T talking about C/S. (C/S would be odd-man-out since they're probably still on a high from their engagement and not interested in what others are doing.) So both J/T and N/V could make a pact, and possibly form an alliance in Bangladesh(?), to U-Turn their own hated teams by whoever gets there first.

Well, I guess no redemption arc for Chad & Stephanie.  The way they finally revealed that Stephanie can seemingly be just as bad as he is (edited to be) must mean an ouster's on their way.  They basically go out the way they came in.

I think the Roadblock might involve something related to building a bike, something Chad's taunting Nat over.

Quick thoughts on the promo:

The rickshaw assembling is the RB; C/S, B/C, and N/K are there at the same time. The title quote must go here.

The brick carrying and laying is part of the detour. This looks like the typical really hard detour choice that is on an U-turn detour and would otherwise not be chosen.

The drinking thing may be the other detour choice, Chad Brooke and Kat are doing it. Nat and Kat turning that wheel is part of the process of making the drink. It looks like they are riding those little boats out to the drink making task and the task itself may be on one of those large ferries they are climbing into.

Why are B/C seen doing the drinking and the carrying? Confirmation that they are U-turned?

Any thoughts on all that info?

What about what I thought earlier about jute? I can't see it being a juice though...

So the drink task is the preferred choice but some are forced to do the bricks. B/C and C/S are seen doing both so they either switch or are U-turned, or both. With Chad's quote I would guess that they have been U-turned.

I can't see jute being a juice either. The preview showed what looked like canes/stalks being smashed through a rolling contraption (and it can't be bamboo!)

They are pressing sugar cane to get the juice, which is why Chad has the cans......they have to get a certain amount of juice. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if they are required to go multiple places to get multiple ingredients for the drink they have to prepare. All in those boats......shopping on the water.

I am going to assume the brick carry and stacking job is harder but much faster and all the teams do it. Since only C/S and B/C.........they do the U turn detour too.

I think the RB is to fix a rickshaw, so it can take you someplace. Jill/Thomas and Nick/Vick are seen riding in rickshaws with smiles, while Claire, Jill and Chad watch their partners "fix" rickshaws. I can see Nick finishing this first...since he is a motorcycle rider back home.

It is definitely sugarcane juice, the mugs are similar to that used by Indian hawkers in Singapore, most of whom are either Tamil or Bengali descent, to sell sugarcane juice, and the contraption looks similar.

They are pressing sugar cane to get the juice, which is why Chad has the cans......they have to get a certain amount of juice. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if they are required to go multiple places to get multiple ingredients for the drink they have to prepare. All in those boats......shopping on the water.

I am going to assume the brick carry and stacking job is harder but much faster and all the teams do it. Since only C/S and B/C.........they do the U turn detour too.

I think the RB is to fix a rickshaw, so it can take you someplace. Jill/Thomas and Nick/Vick are seen riding in rickshaws with smiles, while Claire, Jill and Chad watch their partners "fix" rickshaws. I can see Nick finishing this first...since he is a motorcycle rider back home.

I was thinking along these same lines, don't forget that Nat and Kat do the sugar cane too.

It looks like they are getting the bricks off of the boats too, I wonder how far they have to walk for each trip back and forth. By the way Chad is acting it seems like they are doing the bricks as their "U-turn task."

After reviewing episode seven and the preview on CBS.com, I'm even surer than ever that this might be Chad & Stephanie's final leg.

In the confessional that aired after they barely survived the second Russia leg, Stephanie's saying how far she and Chad have come, and many originally thought it was their elimination confessional in Oman, but later screencaps proved it may more than likely have been taped in Bangladesh.  I think that's true, because in that preview, Chad's wearing the same shirt on the course he was wearing in that Bangladesh confessional.  So's Stephanie.

It looks like they collect the bricks from a boat and then dump the bricks into some type of conveyor system. I suspect they reload the bricks at the top of the conveyor system and transport them to the stacking area.

The producers probably made it so only one team member needs to drink (but two may do it to finish faster), like when they changed the task at the Swedish theme park because Big Easy wouldn't fit in a ride.

That's odd, how many different pics do they have to pose for? And why so many?

First there are the back pack pictures that go online and seem to be from the start line.

Then the video clips (not really pics) that go on the tv intro

Thirdly the yield/U-turn pics the producers keep on hand

Maybe they are trying to make it harder on us. But its not working! :grins: :werock:

I don't know how to do screencaps, but I just went back and checked the credits.

The background of the quick Brooke and Claire pose is a pink tree behind Brooke. They're getting UTurned by Jill and Thomas.

The background behind Nat and Kat's title shot is OR monitors/equipment and it's grayish blue.

The background behind Chad and Stephanie's title shot is blue on blue sea/sky behind them.

Thank you eamon, for doing what this poor technologically-challenged n00b couldn't! :)

I like the Nat/Kat theory because it doesn't make sense to me that Chad/Stephanie would get UTurned before them, I think it's just a case of Nick/Vicky only having one team behind them and that's Jerk and co.

I don't think they'll win this next leg.  They were with Brook & Claire and Chad & Stephanie, so I think they'll all get to the U-Turn around the same time, or Nat & Kat will get far enough ahead of Nick & Vicki, at least, not to worry about getting U-Turned.  Or they'll be behind them, and Nick & Vicki will just U-Turn Chad & Stephanie out of panic.

There is no conveyor system so she's dropping them on accident. There is a 45 second video on Youtube showing a guy balancing bricks on his head and walking off the boat to transport them.

Personally, I think you have hit the nail on the head. It's the same conclusion I came too at the moment...I will hold off final judgement till we see if we get more promos this week.It will be interesting to see how it works out this week.

The Doc Ladies have been cruelly efficient when they havent had bad luck. Bad luck with 1st taxi driver in Ghana, saved by 2nd taxi driver. Then Ghana II is linear leg, so they cant really move up. Bad music judge in Russia I...then bad map in Oman. They are looking more and more like Nick/Starr and Meagen/Cheyne the farther we go.

They do reach the U-Turn before B/C and C/S, and they are pretty efficient too (as much as I'd hate to say it....in Russia 1 especially). If it's not the fastest choice, then there will have to be issues with pressing the sugarcane that sets the other teams behind. I can see N/V choosing the bricks too since it's right up their alley :D (in a good way of course!).

Does the RB come before or after the Detour? The three teams shown at the RB choose the same Detour option, so I kinda think it comes first. N/K may get a solid 3rd with J/T and N/V in the front.

It is true that somehow J/T finish the detour first.

I tended to think that the RB is first in this leg but after some quick research I found something odd. More often than not the RB is before the Detour, however in U-turn legs they are not. Only once has a RB preceded the U-turn detour... odd. (Anyone know remember what RB that was?)

Maybe they bend that rule on this one in order to make the double u-turn the dramatic showdown.

Really hard to judge that leg. J/T were not delayed by the bad music judge as the other teams that did the music task were. They did finish the film detour first....but Michael/Kevin beat them to the RB and finished that before J/T. If not for Kevin's stubborness....they would have probably finished 2nd on a flawed leg. J/T are pretty inefficient to me. They got lost in Kiruna and lost contact with all the other teams, which forced them to use the Express Pass. They switched detours at the circus, twice. They are good team, but lots more helter skelter than the Lady Docs. As far as the edits we are seeing, J/T seem to me to waste a lot of energy. Lots more than the Docs.

I think the RB is first and I think, come Sunday, we will see all 5 teams there at the same time. We see Claire, Jill and Chad....so that means that Thomas, Brooke and Stephanie are doing it. Then we have Chad's quote harassessing Nat while she is doing it. That leaves Nick/Vick....since it doesn't involve heights, I am assuming that Nick does it and with his experience with he motorcycle, he might even finish first......who would have thought????

I have said a long time back that I think this leg is a NEL......I still feel the same way, with the introduction of the W-Turn.

Why put two teams in a fight to survive and then not eliminate either one? 

The fact that they are all there and the drama factor supports the idea that they will break tradition and do the RB first.

Errps I sure hope not! I would totally scream at the tv if it really happened. All the suspense and intense competition between 2 teams to not get eliminated... only to end with a NEL  (:;)

That's what I think too. It doesn't make sense to end that way. Besides they like the format of the NEL right before the final elimination.

Yup, that appears to be the trend from the past few seasons! I hope CBS didn't decide to change it this season, cause frankly, I don't really like seeing C/S and N/V on the show that much. :P

You're in luck. According to the evidence, neither one of those makes it to the final.

Has anybody had any luck with this building? It looks like they're running near it, so maybe the first info stop or a pitstop. White, maybe colonial, high archways and "pawnbroker" lamps...I've been looking around downtown and Old Dhaka, but no luck yet.

Yeah, if the teams checked in from about 8pm to midnight they will be leaving in mid/late morning Muscat time.

As far as what time they arrive I would guess late afternoon. Flights looked they took anywhere from eight to eighteen hours, but they lose time flying eastbound. Dhaka is two hours ahead of Muscat. So, if they get an eight hour flight leaving at 10am they would arrive at 4pm local time which looks about right from the caps.

It would be nice if they changed it up somewhat with the final NEL at the F5, thus, making everyone work harder for the prize.

I agree, too.  But maybe in a later season.  With a Double U-Turn coming up, though?  No.  Should be elimination.  No point in making all this drama and tension for nothing.

We have confirmed spoiler sighting of Jill/Thomas in the Muscat airport at midnight of June 9/10, which would indicate an extended pit stop.......From what Mallory said in post elimination interviews, they checked in at midnight on evening of June 8/9, just a few minutes after Nat and Kat. So expect Nat/Kat to be about 5 hours behind C/S and J/T in leaving the pit stop in Muscat.

That helps explain the time situation. Probably some flight drama, because there seemed to be a lot of choices to get from Muscat to Dhaka.
Although, they all seem to be there at the same time, perhaps an HoO catches them up.

You see, I think TPTB are trying this double U-Turn because they are going to have this leg be a NEL which none of the teams would be expecting.

It heightens the drama and energy for the remainder of the Race because teams will know they have no room for error after this leg; and it will rack up the killer fatigue to near-records heights.

U-turning two teams and having a NEL seems to be too cautious by production. However I can see your point.

No one wants this to be a NEL.

Since you have only been a member here for 18 days, I will give you the benefit of doubt.

If you had been here after Amanda and Kris were eliminated on a U-turn leg in TAR 13 14 or Joe/Heidi were eliminated on a U turn leg in TAR 16......and heard all the howling and moaning about how unfair it was........maybe you could see the BEAUTY in having a double U turn leg and no elimination.........

And how do you know that "No one" wants it to be a NEL.....that presumes you know what everyone wants, which you don't. It's not really "wanting", it's about predicting/forecasting/speculating it. It seems more like you don't want it to be a NEL and that is okay too.

It's fully possible that it may be an NEL - CBS has learnt to change things after so many years! However, based on all the deductions made for the F4 and F3, I just hope it isnt :P Oh yeah, so it appears that there is a bunching point for the teams, right? I think N/K were pretty far behind all the teams after the leg in Oman. Also I wonder if N/K are in front of the teams when they choose who to U-Turn... I thought they'd be viewed as threats :P

This is what I was saying and what several others have expressed, that the W-turn is giving teams a chance and making it fair. Besides what we may want, I think that it is logical to have an elimination because of the W-turn.
The silly thing is that it really doesn't matter if it is or not, we know that C/S will go next. Whether it is this leg or next is irrelevant, it is simply a debate to have since we don't have much other material about this leg.

I thought so too. Since Nick & Vicki have admitted they are the strongest and the smartest team. (or one of the strongest).

I think you're right about Nat & Kat being ahead of Nick & Vicki at least (or even in 1st place) at the point when the U-Turn comes into play this next leg. Otherwise Nick & Vicki would have U-Turned them.

P.S I just realised why other RFFers use the term 'W-Turn'. :-[

With all the teams being at the RB at the same time, there really must be a HoO. That is the only way that Nat and Kat could catch up.

As far as the NEL......I personally could give a rat's anatomy whether it is Leg 9 or 10. Leg 10 has been the standard pattern, since they went to 12 leg races. But the NELs this race have all been earlier than before. Hence my thoughts on why it's the next one, coupled with the new U turn. Plus it makes good numerology.....3,6,9

Now I will just wait till Sunday to see what happens......

True, everyone has an opinion and good ideas for why this could be a NEL or not. On one hand I would prefer to see one since it would be a different touch. I can also see how it could be a let down after the fight between the U-turned teams.

We should probably move this discussion on to another topic in this episode.

In Bangladesh, it is an elimination leg. During in Hong Kong, is a final non elimination leg and finally top 3 will be revealed during the race in Seoul. The final three will bring a great competition between the finalist, and the winner in this season is going to be memorable to the race history.

I still think there may be a possibility for a double leg instead of a NEL. It was like in season 14 with the final four? I'd think it'd be more dramatic if the W-turned teams were fighting for last only to get to Phil and him saying that the leg isn't over and everyone was still racing. It'd still put them in horrible placing compared to the other teams but they'd still have a shot. I think that might be more life draining for the teams if it were that way...

I think that would be a good touch as well, however unfortunately we have already covered that idea and it is impossible.
If you visit the timeline thread woden has the legs all there with their dates. These have been proven to be accurate by a CBS press release that ID'd the date of the final episode as Dec 12.

Except for New Orleans and St. Louis markets where a local blackout rule is in effect, the entire country is getting the one late game for the CBS doubleheader. (Indianapolis v. New England (better known as Peyton v. Brady)

Not sure whether those two markets will get the primetime schedule on time or will wait for the rest of the country that gets the east coast feed, but that's about it for scheduling issues.  As soon as I get a CBS Eye-lert Sunday evening, I'll pass the information on.

Also relevant for the start time is the fact that there are NO other AFC games that could be televised in the 4pm time slot. All other AFC games on Sunday are at 1pm. This means there will be no potential delay after the completion of Colts vs. Patriots in the vicinity of 7pm EST.

LOL at Lalbagh Fort. That place is always turned into a pitstop in every fanfic, fantasy game, and fantasy routes I have read. But, of course! Lalbagh Fort is a gem! :hearts:

That's the second time production has passed through Al Seeb airport leaving a slight odor in the wake (Eric is convinced that the departure was delayed so the Hippies could board). Anyway, after the agent tells Nick/Vicki there's only one seat he suddenly finds 3 more (and we see the papers for Bruce Edward and our old buddy Petr).

Peach........looks like the orginal spoiler for Chat at the Muscat airport was correct......Jill and Thomas were nowhere near Musat around midnight......probable flights for J/T are:

QR 165  Muscat to Doha  6:40 pm to 7:00 pm
QR 344  Doha   to Dhaka  9:00 pm to 5:15 am

or

GF 565  Muscat to Bahrain  6:35 pm to 7:05 pm
GF 250  Bahrain to Dhaka    8:20 pm to 4:45 am

Jill and Thomas (or possibly Jill and Thomas's travel agent) said Qatar Airways in the episode - so therefore, QR 165 to QR 344.

Only one possible Qatar Airways combination for Thomas/Jill. Nick/Vicki's flights were shown on-screen, Nat/Kat's Dubai flight left in daylight, and there's only one combination arriving in Dhaka at noon. I think we've got this leg settled!

Flights from Muscat to Dhaka:

Thomas/Jill
QR 165 to Doha, 1837-1858 (scheduled 1840-1900)
QR 344 to Dhaka, 2116-0519 (scheduled 2100-0515)

Nick/Vicki
LX 243 to Dubai, 2338-0049 (scheduled 2335-0045)
EK 582 to Dhaka, 0219-0847 (scheduled 0200-0840)

Nat/Kat
FZ 46 to Dubai, 1810-1910
9W 543 to Mumbai, 2140-0215 (scheduled 2140-0225)
9W 276 to Dhaka, 0903-1228 (scheduled 0820-1200)

Chad/Stephanie, Brook/Claire
9W 539 to Mumbai, 0040-0440 (scheduled 0045-0445)
9W 276 to Dhaka, 0903-1228 (scheduled 0820-1200)
