Okay, did Bill and Cathi miss the sign too? My feed is lagging like mad for me. :(

I think they did because there was a shot of the sign after they gave their money... But it's not made clear.

But was there a snake like sound? LOL

Why the Andy & Tommy hate, Joab.  Just because their guys?

I like them.  So far.  They have been nice to others on the race, have a sense of humor, nice to each other.  And so far the tasks haven't been designed to be easier for two guys racing.

And so far they aren't a BJ & Tyler over the top annoyance.

I think you got me wrong darling.. I don't hate them. I'm neutral towards them and I have nothing against them. Yes, they haven't been a BJ and Tyler either.

It's just, I wanted Liz and Marie or Bill and Cathi to come in first. You see, it's harder for these 2 teams to come in first as compared to teams like Andy and Tommy or Ernie and Cindy. I like Ernie and Cindy but I didn't want them to come in first this leg either because they already won the last.

I just like different teams coming in first place! I feel that on seasons where different teams come in first place (with the exception of TAR 5).. have all been great seasons. TAR 1, TAR 14, TAR 7, TAR 17, TAR 18 etc etc. In comparison, I hated TAR 9 and TAR 13. It bored the shit out of me. :neener:

To be fair, I won't be surprise if the snowboarders made it up till Leg 8.. and they're going to win a leg or 2 more on the way, so I really really wanted other teams whom I expect not to make it that far to win a leg first.

That's just my rationale.

I would have loved, loved to see Bill & Cathi win that's for sure.  Not so much Liz & Marie just because they haven't made as nice of an impression as Andy & Tommy (ie they have had some conflict with each other, though its been minor).

I guess for me you race well, followed by you are nice to locals, nice to your team mate and then nice to your competition generally impacts on who I like for teams.  I just generally (there are a few exceptions) don't care about the makeup of a team.

Title: Re: EP 2 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please read the rules**
Post by: mswood on October 02, 2011, 10:35:19 PM
Oh I should add like with sports, I also give props for those who appear to be going all out.

When in season 6 for example I see Mary Jean carrying the salt up to shore, and Adam bitching and moaning.  I loved seeing her kick his ass.

Thats one of the reasons I really didn't like (I did like them but I didn't want to see them keep going) was Erwin & Godwin.  They rarely seemed to going all out.  It's a race.  I got pissed at much of the cast of season 16 for this type of attitude (yeah Jordan I am talking to you we don't need to run.  Shut up yes you do).

With this episode and last, there wasn't really a lot of visual clues to show that a team is working their ass off.  So its much harder to judge that aspect.

I hated that about BJ & Tyler, hated it.  At least Eric & Jeremy always seem to be going all out when actually racing.

Well for most of the leg they were running tenth.  But unlike most of the teams (minus Andy & Tommy and Laurence & Zac) Kaylani & Lisa properly followed a clue that saved them from having to go back to the last task of the race, complete it properly and then return to Phil.  THis vaulted them up to third.

It was very nice to see this team paying attention to the small details (especially after the passport incident).

15,000 Rupiah parking for one Detour.

Go to Orphanage and hand over all their money in their possession? WTF. TAR IS EVIL. :lol:

In hindsight, since the 15,000/30,000 Rupiah donated to the orphanage is worth only about US$1.70/$3.40, perhaps the racers should have been more suspicious about this task.  I wonder if the racers were given an extra generous amount of money at the start of this leg of the race so they'd have more in their pockets when they got to Indonesia.

Why... why isn't anybody complaining about the really ridiculous Speedbump which Bill and Cathi has to do. This beat the noodle making one the poker girls had to do because it was ridiculously pointless and took like less than 5 minutes? WTF.

I mean, why bother to put a Speedbump to "scare" the team who come in last if recent Speedbumps has been this easy. I know I've once complained that a Speedbump should be a task which does not require travelling (waste time).. but at least 15 to 30 minutes to complete considering how fast the team will take to complete the task.

The one in TAR 13 (Ken and Tina delivering water to people on the streets of India, Christie and Jodi painting the elephant in India, Kent and Vyxsin's yoga (IN INDIA TOO?)... really wasted too much time just on travelling alone.. although the task was really easy and AT LEAST was interesting and had some links to the culture and tradition of the country.

Can anyone please tell me, recent speedbumps like the one Gallory had to do last season as well as this rope speedbump... what's the point?? It's just pointless! :duno:

It does seem as though they never try to create a hard Speed Bump, but IMO, Gallory's Speed Bump would have been harder for other, Gary-less teams. :) He made everything look easy. :js:

I think Mallory solved it? I don't know... I would have appreciated it if the Speedbump was actually something like repairing a motorbike or what at the other Detour or maybe buying food/clothings and delivering to the orphanage. Would have made so much sense.

This is the first time TAR visited an Orphanage and I felt it was pointless and completely underrated. It should have been the highlight of the episode?????????????

We just finished watching the eppy with roommates, and uhm..... yeah. It was "chill" (which is one level above 'lame'). It was very weird for me. Not so amazing? I think so.

Or maybe Unfinished Business has upped the bar (and BTW, we were watching it in marathon during this week, so the comparisons spark).

I really really hope next leg's gonna be AMAZING. And by the looks of the teaser, yeah, I'm sure (and I hope) it is. :tup:

And oh! I think I have an idea of what the final task is. :snicker: :lol: Its about maps and 'clueboxes'. :lol: (I'll post my specs on the spec thread).

I'm with you on this one. The results were really surprising though having seen the ending, I kind of see how it happened.

The TAR gods hate me this season so far for some reason. I missed all but the last 15 minutes last week because I was traveling and out for dinner while the show started. This week, I was at home and watched the end of 60 Minutes. The very moment it ended, Directv's network channels feed crashed and there was no TAR for me until it returned in time for the last 15 minutes.  :groan:  :didimiss:

I watched last week's show online and I guess I'll have to do it again this week. This stinks. Anybody have any ideas about how to appease the TAR gods?  :duno:

Bill and Cathi - SPEEDBUMP!

WTF? Their Speedbump is to untangle rope? THAT IS STUPID. WTF.
SpeedBumps have no purpose except to use an approximate amount of time. I am going to guess it took Bill/Cathi about 10 to 15 minutes to untangle enough rope to string it to that tree.

I think the last task would involve reading maps, as you may notice from the first clue this leg there is a map of Indonesia printed on it... I would assume the coming leg would be the same... just like what happened in TAR9

If Bill & Cathi would have read the sign, they would have made a comeback that only Derek & Drew have done.

Jet and Cord did in TAR 16. :)

I should have worded it better. No other team has made as big of a climb as Derek & Drew- 11th to 1st.

This is a bit of a side note. All through the first episode was thinking Ethan & Jenna had a Hope & Norm vibe going on. It turns out they both have the same average placing.

That was one hair-raising leg indeed. At the beginning, it all seemed too quick as the Roadblock was immediately followed by the Detour. At the end, I realised that they were focusing more on the mistakes almost all the teams made skipping the sign at the orphanage. I was surprised that only three teams saw the sign! Moral of the story - be very aware of your surroundings, always!

I wasn't too happy that Andy and Tommy won the leg, but they did deserve it. They raced a very good leg, starting near the back of the pack, moved up to the middle, and came in first because they did not make a mistake while everyone in front of them did. So kudos to them.

I'm very impressed by Bill and Cathi, Liz and Marie, and Kaylani and Lisa this leg. Who'd expect Bill and Cathi to do so well after coming in last the previous leg? If not for their negligence at the orphanage... Wow! Who'd expect Liz and Marie to initially be the top three teams as well after all that cluelessness last leg? And who'd expect Kaylani and Lisa to fumble at the last leg, yet were one of the three teams who did not make a mistake? It was such an amazing moment when they checked in at 10th place but became 3rd. Wow!

I didn't really care that Ron and Bill were gone. I did expect them to make it a LITTLE further though. I was sad to see Ethan and Jenna go. I haven't seen them on Survivor, so I was looking forward to watching them race. I guess the other teams would be surprised as well. After all, they were deemed the strong guys.

Right now, I feel that the teams who'll make it to the Final 5 are Ernie and Cindy, Andy and Tommy, and Justin and Jennifer. Just a gut feeling!

Why... why isn't anybody complaining about the really ridiculous Speedbump which Bill and Cathi has to do. This beat the noodle making one the poker girls had to do because it was ridiculously pointless and took like less than 5 minutes? WTF.

I mean, why bother to put a Speedbump to "scare" the team who come in last if recent Speedbumps has been this easy. I know I've once complained that a Speedbump should be a task which does not require travelling (waste time).. but at least 15 to 30 minutes to complete considering how fast the team will take to complete the task.

The one in TAR 13 (Ken and Tina delivering water to people on the streets of India, Christie and Jodi painting the elephant in India, Kent and Vyxsin's yoga (IN INDIA TOO?)... really wasted too much time just on travelling alone.. although the task was really easy and AT LEAST was interesting and had some links to the culture and tradition of the country.

Can anyone please tell me, recent speedbumps like the one Gallory had to do last season as well as this rope speedbump... what's the point?? It's just pointless! :duno:

It isn't easy. It takes about 10-15 minutes to do it properly, and I speak from experience in the army. Last season's speed bump was easy only because Gary is good at Maths (imagine say Jeff & Jordan doing it  :lol3:)

I don't feel the need to complain about the speedbump but I do want to complain about wasting precious air time for a pointless argument between Justin and Jennifer when they could have used that time to show us an extra task, that we only learned about from interviews.

In hindsight, since the 15,000/30,000 Rupiah donated to the orphanage is worth only about US$1.70/$3.40, perhaps the racers should have been more suspicious about this task.  I wonder if the racers were given an extra generous amount of money at the start of this leg of the race so they'd have more in their pockets when they got to Indonesia.


Sorry if I missed this, but I wonder how much money was donated in total. I think at the start of the leg, didn't they each get like $137 or something? Say all 11 teams had donated $100 (including the amount gathered during the detour) - that's over $1000 US.  How much is that worth in Yogyakarta based on their avg cost of living?  That's not bad. 

Amazing Race Charity.  Makes my heart smile.

The photos we posted from that day show huge crowds and tour groups moving thru there...I think if they were dropped, that would have been the last time they were seen.

Well I didn't watch it in the US so I can't give you the exact time, but it was just after Phil introduces the Martyr's Shrine.

The more I listen to it, the more I think it is actually Phil. But it sounds very strange! 'Ernie and Cindy who were the first to arrive...' and then after 'Teams must now fly...'

You are entitled to your opinion, but they and Ron/Bill were subject to unshown but revealed now that they are out information on how the poor taxi drivers usually reserved for the final leg ended up with them. Ethan/Jenna had the capability to do far better in AR19, but they were tragically unlucky.

I watched the Justin/Jennifer argument more than once. I think it was staged.

It was a totally ridiculous argument to have. Surely Justin is smart enough to realize that if your instructions tell you to go by train, there's no point in arguing with your partner over other modes of transportation you might take. The argument doesn't sound like any kind of real conversation, because it's not: these two are talking to the camera, not to each other.

Cameras cut away from Justin/Jennifer to the other racers twice, then cut back. The audio continues uninterrupted while this happens, but each time the camera returns to Justin/Jennifer, they have switched places. This argument consists of three separate takes spliced together to simulate a conversation. Conclusion: it was not a real argument. Maybe our beloved TAR production team has been getting really boring footage from other teams and this was the best thing they could come up with. If that's the case, I really hope they can drum up something more compelling, and quick.

Not to say that J/J aren't prone to some real differences of opinion. In fact, judging from her facial expressions and body language in their interview clips, she hates her brother's guts and can barely stand to be within twelve feet of him. Things seem to be OK when he steps back and lets her take the lead, as he did during the parking task. But the minute he opens his mouth to assert himself, look out. I really wonder what made them want to do the race together.

Speaking of staged moments, I have a hard time believing the dude who found the lost passport at the gas station came up with the idea of taking it to the airport all on his own. And once he got there, how'd he know which terminal to go to? (LAX has 6 huge terminals.) No sir, someone from the TAR crew told him where to go if he wanted to be on TV and get a hug from a showgirl. I suppose you could argue that this being a non-elimination leg, the crew needed to find a way to get the showgirls to Taipei in time to run the leg and not throw the whole schedule off by a day. Be that as it may, it's still pretty obvious that strings were pulled in Kaylani & Lisa's favor.

(You've got to love how the showgirls say they want to shatter stereotypes about how dumb they are, and then proceed to drop a passport almost immediately. They did make a nice recovery in Ep. 2, but one has to hope there won't be another deus ex machina the next time they screw up, particularly if they're on an elimination leg.)

There is more information about the passport getting to LAX in the media thread.

mrmando,
I don't agree of the difficulty of finding them. I have been to LAX in July and it does have 8 terminals plus the Tom Bradley International Terminal. The first place that Ryan would have gone was the Bradley Terminal, which is where his page found Kaylani. However, if that did not work he should have moved on to Terminal 2 (the only other one with a large concentration of international airlines) and then, if he did not know they were going to Taiwan, the terminals of the U.S. airlines which fly internationally.

Ryan knew exactly where to go because I told him exactly where. :lol: It was never a question.

And no, CBS/WRP were in no way involved, they were very surprised as the NYTimes article states.

No conspiracy, no mystery, just an RFF team in the right place at the right time to be able to help out a stranger. We never questioned that it was the right thing to do, we could not have done otherwise. And as you are all aware, it was never done for spoilers or attention,  we did not spoil this. And I would probably never have said a word had Phil not all but ID'd me. :lol:

 :jam:

And if Ryan did not drive to LAX I was on my way to go fetch the Passport from him !  There was enough time to do that and still catch the 1:20 am flight to Taipei. 

But, I Knew that I didn't have to make the drive when I walked up upon the filming of the four of them together.  It was 10:45 pm. 

If Phil was doing the elimination at that point I would have told him to stop and wait.   :knuckles:
