Ernie & Cindy depart first at 9:01 AM. Drive to the Hans Christian Andersen Statue. Roadblock.

Who's ready to take a fairytale ride?

They have to learn a poem by heart... and then use a bicycle with a map on the front wheel. They have to ride themselves to this theatre, and then perform it for this theatre person. If it's not dramatic enough, he'll make them say it again... And then if they forget, then they have to go back.

Cindy is doing the roadblock.

HEH. A tourist bus came and then blocked the statue.

I like this bicycle. It has a smiley face on it... I would steal it.

Cindy is reciting it. Pretty dramatic.

She gets a bravo!

Cindy can't read the poem because tourists are blocking the text. But she memorizes and sets off. Cindy attempts it and gets it on her first try.
Bill and Cathi 10:34 (she says "Hot dog" again)
Andy & Tommy 10:39

RI: Drive to Legoland and find a marked Carrousel ride

Cathi does the RB (she is an English teacher) she can't find the theater on the map.
Tommy does the RB

Amani & Marcus 11:43

Cathi is doing the roadblock. Tommy is doing the roadblock. Cathi couldn't find the theatre on the bicycle map, but she asks for directions.

Amani & Marcus depart at 11:43 AM. They say how much money they get. But I didn't hear it. Amani is doing the roadblock. Marcus is distracting Amani. :lol3:

Amani passes Cathi and Tommy to the performance, and finishes in 2nd place.

Cathi performs 3rd but fails. Tommy is still lost

Jeremy & Sandy finally depart at 12:08
Sandy does the Roadblock and she runs into Cindy.

Ernie & Cindy get to Legoland and get their box.

Post by: Dånooky on November 20, 2011, 07:42:05 PM
Cathi arrives at the theater again, followed by Tommy. A very dramatic reading by Cathi and she gets an ovation, finishing in third. Tommy performs fourth, he's not showing any emotion like everybody else does, but recites it correctly. However, the judge fails him because he was lame. Sandy steps in.
Title: Re: EP 9 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please read the rules**
Post by: Polaroid on November 20, 2011, 07:42:26 PM
Ernie & Cindy arrive. They have to put together these Lego pieces only while the pirate ride is in motion. When it's not in motion, they can't do anything. When it's pieced together, the pieces will tell the next location.

Cathi gets a bravo.

Tommy isn't being dramatic. He's just reciting it. "MORE DRAMA, PLEASE. I need you to bring life to the words!" Cathi warned him. :groan:

Sandy needs more drama. :lol3:

Bill & Cathi arrive at Legoland.

Tommy... isn't a theatre person. :lol: He manages to get a very good. He gets the clue.

Sandy gets a bravo. She gets the clue.

Ernie & Cindy know where it is. But they still have to put together the puzzle.
Title: Re: EP 9 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please read the rules**
Post by: Dånooky on November 20, 2011, 07:47:57 PM
"Drama for your mama" says Tommy. Sandy does a slam-style, but she's also lame, as per the judge. Bill & Cathi ride to Legoland. Tommy is pissed, which pleases Jeremy. Tommy is being so snarky and dark-humored...and I love it. He gets the clue and high-fives Sandy on his way out.

Sandy gets the clue in last place. Ernie & Cindy are still spinning, the ride ends, but they weren't able to put their photo together. Now they know where to go but they need to try again. They succeed.

RI: Teams must drive to Hamburg.

Ernie & Cindy finish the puzzle. Teams have to drive to Hamburg Train Station in Germany.

Amani & Marcus are doing the puzzle now. Amani hates... spinny things. Their pieces are flying everywhere. :lol: Amani thinks she's about to throw up. There's a barf bag on the ground.

Bill & Cathi are lost.

Andy has a HUGEEEEE map. Takes up the entire back of the car.

Tommy: You know what they say about people with big maps... There's a lot of places to go. :lol3:

Bill & Cathi are really lost.

Amani & Marcus finish the puzzle. They're out in 2nd.

Tommy loved Lego as a kid.

Amani doesn't like twirling around. "Oh snap" says Marcus. They fail. Bill & Cathi are lost. Amani is about to throw up and fails again. Bill & Cathi stop at a restaurant but they can't understand the person. Amani and Marcus finally solve the puzzle. Andy & Tommy arrive at Legoland.

Jeremy & Sandy follow suit. No sign of Bill & Cathi.

Jeremy & Sandy have to get a new puzzle because they lost one piece. :(

Ernie & Cindy arrive at the train station. Travel by train to Brussels. 3rd country in this leg! Then they have to go to the European Parliament building.

There's only one train to Brussels. Ernie & Cindy forget their train tickets on the ground? I don't know what just happened.

Jeremy & Sandy finish the puzzle. Bill & Cathi FINALLY arrive. Cathi: "This is going to be a treat." :lol:

WAIT. I JUST NOTICED. THE FIRST CLUEBOX THIS ENTIRE RACE?

Bill & Cathi finish the puzzle. Bill wants a hot dog. Cathi wants a slurpee. Bill: "My crackers were about to fall out."
Title: Re: EP 9 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please read the rules**
Post by: Dånooky on November 20, 2011, 08:01:45 PM
And back, Jeremy & Sandy decide to get a new box because of their missing piece. They try again. Ernie & Cindy make it to Hbf and

RI: ride to Brussels via Cologne by train where they must find the Parliament. There's a drawing of the outline of Belgium.

The next train departs after midnight, they lose their ticket on their way out of the ticketing office. Jeremy & Sandy complete the challenge.

Bill & Cathi arrive at Legoland. Andy & Tommy arrive to the train station 2nd.

Bill wants a Hot Dog and Cathi wants a Slurpee

Amani & Marcus get there third, followed shortly by Jeremy & Sandy

Ernie & Cindy realize they lost their tickets. They go back to the office. They lost the tickets for the Cologne-Brussels leg and don't have enough money to buy new ones.

Ernie & Cindy can't find their tickets. They still have lots of time... but they can't find it. They don't have enough money for more tickets. Cindy is going to break down. Ernie is comforting her. :hrt:

Sandy and Andy tease Bill & Cathi by asking them if they got an earlier ride. :lol:

Ernie & Cindy are talking to the train conductor. It's not possible to print out new tickets... And they don't have their receipts. THAT'S WHY YOU ALWAYS TAKE YOUR RECEIPTS!

First step is the fake spray-tan. Tommy was really uncomfortable. Everybody caught up. Marcus explains the logic behind the tanning. AT's friendship "has just hit a whole new leve". Ernie is self-confident. They go to the posing tutorial.

Next week on The Amazing Race...

The race continues in Belgium.

The trash talk heats up. It seems like Andy & Tommy are barely ahead of Marcus & Amani at this point.

Teams go full throttle. They're driving like crazy on this race course.

I'm not surprised that it was a TBC leg.  I figured it would be one.

I'm glad the concern over Ernie & Cindy's tickets were much ado about nothing.

I just noticed no sign of Bill & Cathi in the promos for the next leg.  Not a good sign for them.

A zero hour pitstop saves this leg from being terrible due to an end of leg equalizer. Bill & Cathi will probably be saved here because if they weren't, they would have just shown it in this episode, and it is about time for a Non-elimination leg. But then again, they weren't shown in the previews.  :ascared But on the other hand, if they showed all five teams in the previews, there wouldn't be any suspense.

Term correction, this is not a TBC, it's a KRL (keep-racing leg).

The new version of TBC includes a pit stop that is called a pit stop and a first place prize. Originally they just went to a random place and got a clue from Phil. Sometimes they didn't know he would be there.

Leg 9 is a normal leg, but with no rest period. (Teams are warned that a last place team may be eliminated, Phil checks in the teams, and a prize for the first place team is announced) but there is no rest period. The TBC legs might have had Phil at the mid point, but there was no clue directing them to a "pit stop" and warning that a last place team may be eliminated; teams did get a clue to "just keep racing."


Also, all teams now have a 5-5 spilt on the roadblocks for the season to date. With three legs left, this implies this may be a season where a 7-6 Roadblock split may be permitted, or there is a leg remaining with no roadblock.

There was a leg with two roadblocks, the second leg in Phuket.

By any chance, will Phil eliminate the last team on the mat for this leg? He said the the next leg happens RIGHT NOW, making it a zero-hour pitstop.

Last time we had it in S18, Phil's words were:
"You can enjoy that after the race, but right now you are still racing, here's your next clue."

In S14:
"This leg is not yet over you are still racing, here's your next clue."

... which might explain the lack of Bill and Cathi in the Previews. BUT HECK, IF THEY DO ELIMINATE A TEAM AT THE START, WORST TWIST EVER. Gloomy start.

Is there a chance E/C will get a penalty for taking the train without a ticket? Just because no one checks, doesn't make it legal.

Post by: theschnauzers on November 20, 2011, 09:02:55 PM
The fact that there was already a two-roadblock leg doesn't rule out another such leg, but there hasn't been a Race with two "regular" legs with two roadblocks.

There's nothing precluding an elimination at the pit stop preceding a no rest period break into the following leg, but we haven't had that happen with the previous no rest period legs, and by definition, it would not have happened with a TBC leg. We still have one more NEL leg left, so leg 9 (which is the one we're in the middle of) could fit that.

The thing about Ernie and Cindy is that they did buy a train ticket, but they lost it at the train station. It's not like to stole a ride on the train to Brussels. But I have no idea how this will work as far as penalties, so we'lll have to wait and see what happens next week.

Yeah, I can see them being lenient since they DID buy a ticket. But if you get on a train without a ticket, it's still illegal. They had no proof of purchase from what it looked like and had they been caught it could have been a legal issue with a fine. The example I brought up while watching is that here in Toronto and the surrounding area, you buy your GO ticket before you get on the train and they trust you bought it. Sometimes, transit safety comes around and checks whether you have a ticket, if you don't, it's a $170 fine since you are then technically trespassing.

I like Ernie and Cindy and they are one of my picks to win but I think they definitely deserve a penalty for what they've done.


ETA: Then again, did teams only get a penalty for speeding if they were caught? I vaguely remember a penalty that involved 2 minutes/mph they were going over the speed limit plus some base but I don't remember if that was only if they were caught.

The only time they've announced Race proper penalties for speeding was in areas where they felt like there were very legit safety reasons for a hard speed limit. Absent that, it's at your own risk of having to deal with the ticket fines. (I can remember at least one team getting busted in New Zealand a few seasons back.)

Production has also apparently limited Racers speeds to below the posted limit for other safety issues. Reports on TWOP are that Millie & Chuck's elimination came from that kind of thing- they were so sleep deprived that they kept weaving across the centerline on a two lane road, got hit with a 50 kph or so speed limit from production to keep from killing their camera crew and causing insurance costs for the show to spike, and the result was that they got passed by a team not facing that speed limit, which significantly contributed to their elimination.

This are the speed penalties in TAR history

1. Andy & Laura: 92-min penalty starting next leg (30 minutes + 2 min x number of km over speed limit which in their case was 42km) b
2. Nick & Starr: 30 min penalty Leg 4, never shown
3. Terence & Sarah: 30 min penalty next leg, pushed them from 3rd to 5th

If so then there would have to be another NEL at the end of leg 10 which doesn't seem likely.

Amani has got it. She and Marcus are next. He's enjoying it. They score a perfect 12 and must make their way to Parc Elizabeth, the Pit Stop.
If one of the judges could award a 5 (which one did for Jeremy and Sandy), then 4 is not the maximum and 12 is a minimum level for moving on but not a perfect score (note that Jeremy and Sandy got 13).

I was recapping live and at that time, I thought 4 was the maximum because a 5 hadn't been awarded yet.

TAR 2 had two such penalties on the same task in its leg in Namibia, and IIRC, there was another one in the early seasons, but I'd have to research it to tell you which one that was.  It was not the Millie-Chuck one, as it wasn't their speeding, but their inability to drive safely that came into play.
