What we know!
 Pics are thumbnails--click-click to enlarge!


Teams flew into Auckland to be met by a KIWI team!!   (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,28049.msg817737.html#msg817737)
(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2022/Auckland/kiwi/th_2012-11-18_042421.jpg) (http://s210.beta.photobucket.com/user/ga--peach/media/TAR%2022/Auckland/kiwi/2012-11-18_042421.jpg.html)

They continued onto Christchurch and Self drove on to RAKAIA GORGE.

They get their first clue
(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2022/Press%20Pics/Episode%201/th_CLUES.jpg) (http://s210.beta.photobucket.com/user/ga--peach/media/TAR%2022/Press%20Pics/Episode%201/CLUES.jpg.html) and possibly spent the night at or near the Gorge.

The next morning they board speedbumps and travel up the river:

Teams then choose a DETOUR OPTION
(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2022/EP%203%20NZ/Never%20Give%20Up/th_22-3-promo2-CAPS0387.jpg) (http://s210.beta.photobucket.com/user/ga--peach/media/TAR%2022/EP%203%20NZ/Never%20Give%20Up/22-3-promo2-CAPS0387.jpg.html)


"Rev it Up" or "Reel it in"
Teams drive ATV's to their Detour option:
(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2022/EP%203%20NZ/YaHoo%20Pics/th_Joey.jpg) (http://s210.beta.photobucket.com/user/ga--peach/media/TAR%2022/EP%203%20NZ/YaHoo%20Pics/Joey.jpg.html)(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2022/Press%20Pics/New%20Zealand/th_RollingFieldsATV.jpg) (http://s210.beta.photobucket.com/user/ga--peach/media/TAR%2022/Press%20Pics/New%20Zealand/RollingFieldsATV.jpg.html)


In "Rev it Up" they must drive through a Rumptydoo Slalom in under 83 seconds in order to receive the next clue:
(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2022/EP%203%20NZ/PREVIEW/th_22-3-preview-CAPS0446.jpg) (http://s210.beta.photobucket.com/user/ga--peach/media/TAR%2022/EP%203%20NZ/PREVIEW/22-3-preview-CAPS0446.jpg.html)(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2022/EP%203%20NZ/PREVIEW/th_22-3-preview-CAPS0378.jpg) (http://s210.beta.photobucket.com/user/ga--peach/media/TAR%2022/EP%203%20NZ/PREVIEW/22-3-preview-CAPS0378.jpg.html)(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2022/EP%203%20NZ/PREVIEW/th_22-3-preview-CAPS0414.jpg) (http://s210.beta.photobucket.com/user/ga--peach/media/TAR%2022/EP%203%20NZ/PREVIEW/22-3-preview-CAPS0414.jpg.html)

In "Reel it In":
(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2022/EP%203%20NZ/Never%20Give%20Up/th_22-3-promo2-CAPS0261.jpg) (http://s210.beta.photobucket.com/user/ga--peach/media/TAR%2022/EP%203%20NZ/Never%20Give%20Up/22-3-promo2-CAPS0261.jpg.html)(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2022/EP%203%20NZ/Never%20Give%20Up/th_22-3-promo2-CAPS0250.jpg) (http://s210.beta.photobucket.com/user/ga--peach/media/TAR%2022/EP%203%20NZ/Never%20Give%20Up/22-3-promo2-CAPS0250.jpg.html)


Teams then go to the ROADBLOCK:

They must participate in a Shemozzle Race which requires one team member to dress as a Kiwi sheperd and run through a wild obstacle course while collecting eggs.

They then proceed to the PitStop where They find they must keep on racing:

so like, we know from spoilers that there possibly could have been a VERY short pit stop.... my guess? its a TBC! it seems that the challenges in the leg (shemozzle racing, atv, jet boat) are very linear, so it would've been easy to execute a leg..... this is just a theory
if we see any confessionals from sneak peeks, we should check the backgrounds in case they are from Indonesia, then we'd be right!

The very short pit stop in NZ reminds me back of Japan Pit Stop in TAR20, which it took three hours.

They both said it at different times. I think the other was a reference to running away from a James Bond villain on the waverunner.

also going along with supah's theory, Dom's timeline has all 9 remaining teams as safe for this episode, and has nobody listed in the "At Risk" section. I think TBC is more likely, but it could also be non-elim with short break.

Remember this from spoilers? We should be able to follow them exactly , looks as though they do go into Terrace Downs, task?? Also with the info below we can assume the rural task was at Mount Hutt Station.
 

We've got video from New Zealand!:
http://youtu.be/NBQ9Muic83A (http://youtu.be/NBQ9Muic83A)
Not much that we can tell but there it is...

 
http://www.youtube.com/v/NBQ9Muic83A?version=3&hl
 
ALSO:
 
A news story fresh from the New Zealand media!
http://www.guardianonline.co.nz/news/latest-news/american-amazing-race-comes-to-town/ (http://www.guardianonline.co.nz/news/latest-news/american-amazing-race-comes-to-town/)
American Amazing Race comes to town
The Amazing Race has hit Mid Canterbury.

Teams in the American version of television’s million dollar race around the world were spotted near Methven this morning taking part in a rural themed challenge at Mount Hutt Station before heading to Terrace Downs.
It’s understood the teams arrived last night and may have camped at the Rakaia Gorge overnight before jet boating on the Rakaia River early this morning.
Teams were last seen driving north through Windwhistle.
There's a picture with the story, but it doesn't show too much. It's a car with the cameraman in the front passenger seat, the sound guy in the back seat and a man driving. You can't see the other teammate.
This agrees well with what we know since I believe KiwiJay said they were headed for the Rakaia Gorge Bridge. Rapppel or bungy to the campsite?
Those locations are in a fairly small radius (5-10 miles?), so it seems reasonable. It looks like an area with scenic Alp like mountains and quite a bit of farming. There are several resorts in the area.

so like, we know from spoilers that there possibly could have been a VERY short pit stop.... my guess? its a TBC! it seems that the challenges in the leg (shemozzle racing, atv, jet boat) are very linear, so it would've been easy to execute a leg..... this is just a theory
if we see any confessionals from sneak peeks, we should check the backgrounds in case they are from Indonesia, then we'd be right!

Keep on racing first happened in TAR 18 for the first leg in Australia where Jet and Cord came in last and on the leg Kent and Vyxsin were hopelessly in last place in China.

This is different from TBC legs because in this case, Phil tells the team that arrives first that they are the FIRST to arrive and they win a PRIZE... then tell them that HOWEVER, they have to KEEP RACING.

In Season 6, the first TBC appeared in Leg 6. Teams reached the pit-stop, but were told to KEEP RACING as well, but no prize was offered to signal the end of the leg. Or at least we did not see it.

I see a lot of opinion about Keep On Racing, but here are the actual situations for Double Length Legs:

AR6, leg 6a and leg 6b in Hungary - teams reached a point where viewers are told that it is To Be Continued, a double length leg. However, there is no effective difference between this and Keep On Racing (a label not used in Amazing Races until AR18) excess there was no finish mat and no first place prize winner

AR7, leg 8a and 8b in India - teams reached a Lucknow rooftop to be told "Still Racing". That sends them in leg 8b to the train station, where them board for a mystery destination which turns out to be Lucknow. There was no prize.

AR8, leg 10a and 10b starting in Salt Lake City, then throughout Utah to Old Faithful for leg 10a, then through Wyoming and Montana for leg 10b. There was no pit stop in between, so this was a "You are still racing. Here is your next clue." leg.

AR8, leg 11a and 11b starting in Montana, then to Montreal, with viewers in suspense on whether the Wheelers would quit finding  tickets somewhere in Olympic Stadium. There was no pit stop and no prize. 11b was the final leg of AR8, traveling to Toronto and then on a motorized boat to Joseph A. David State Park where the final ROADBLOCK awaited them.

AR10 leg 9 - teams in Finland found no finish mat but are told to Keep Racing, which takes them to the Ukraine.

AR18 leg 4 - teams finished in Lijiang, China, with the last 2 (Kynt/Vyxsin and Zev/Justin) being told "Still Racing", with the other 7 teams already started on leg 5 and Margie and Luke winning a first place prize.

I may or may not have all Amazing Race double length legs listed above. Whether they are Keep on Racing or just Still Racing is a totally irrelevant distinction for me. I do agree that a prize was awarded on AR18, leg 4, but who cares?

:D

The important thing with this photo is that Phil and greeter at the mat means that it's a situation like TAR 18 with two legs and a no rest period at the pit stop. Unless there's something we're told when the episode airs that there's no hint of at the moment, it would not be a double-length or TBC or uber-leg (take your pick; it's been called any of the three of them at different times in different places.)
Title: Re: TAR 22 Ep 3 "Like James Bond Again"
Post by: Neobie on March 01, 2013, 10:11:27 PM
Wow, why are we trying to split hairs trying to define what is essentially the same thing? CBS doesn't even have a consistent way to do it, not even in TAR 8 when there were multiple double-legs in the same season. Sometimes Phil (and sometimes a greeter) is there, sometimes he's not. Sometimes there is a mat, sometimes there isn't. Sometimes the first team wins a prize, sometimes they don't. Penalties are carried over in the TAR 18 double-legs, which means they're not actually "separate" legs. But basically all the same thing, right? Also, all of them are TBCs, in that the first team(s) receive the news, then cut to the "to be continued" screen.

I'm still wondering about the idea that the TBC was unplanned, and a result of the long delay getting into New Zealand pushing the racers' arrival into the evening. We'll see how the overnight stay is managed (like if they used props or just an ad-hoc sign-up sheet or nothing at all) to decide!

And so far we have not the first screencap of Christchurch, and we do know that that was planned. One of Phil's' big goals ince the earthquake has been to show the world that NZ and especially Christchurch is ready for visitors, they will not exclude Christchurch footage IMO.

But perhaps it comes next week?? :duno:

Let's talk about the challenges. What is this Shemozzle in your home country of New Zealand?
Keoghan: It's a shepherd dog's race. I've done it; that's inherently part of being from New Zealand. It's sort of like these mud obstacle races in America. There are a bunch of crazy ingredients, like molasses, eggs, feathers, mud, water, hay, trucks, trailers, grass and bubbles. I'm so excited about going back to New Zealand. We were there in Seasons, 2, 5, and 13, when my dad was the greeter. Now we're actually in my hometown of Christchurch and Canterbury. They've had a lot of suffering the past few years [with the 2011 earthquake], so on a personal level, I was so keen to go back and to show the world that Canterbury and Christchurch have picked themselves up. It's important to show how places come back.

I agree with this. I don't really see any reason why Leg 1 of TAR 18 was considered two legs. Just because the first team wins a prize doesn't mean it can be considered a Pit Stop. A "Pit Stop" by definition would inherently contain a rest period of some sort. And for it a mat to count as the end of one leg and the start of another it would have to be a real Pit Stop.

Take home bit:


Quote
in this exclusive clip from Sunday’s episode, we get to see both of them behind the wheel! There’s only one problem — it’s a manual car, so Joey is a little out of his element!

Driving around in a dirt field, each team member must quickly guide the tiny little car around a swerving course, but together, can’t have over a combined time of 83 seconds. Joey goes first, and gets a time of 46 seconds. Go Joey! While Joey and Meghan are on the course, newlywed team Max and Kate are hot on their trail.


Now we know why we see Dave saying "I can't drive it"  :'(

If TAR 18's KOR/TBC legs were counted as 1.. they would have only had 10 legs

but I do agree I don't really see the difference between TAR 18's and the earlier TBC's.

TAR 14's TBC had a prize at the fake Pit Stop and it was still counted as 1 leg.

Nope. Everything as we thought it would be!

Fly to Auckland together. Flight delayed.
Everyone misses their original flight to Christchurch.
Scramble at Auckland Airport. Arrive staggered in Christchurch.
Drive to Rakaia Gorge Bridge.
-----
My speculation
Production decides it's too late and postpones everything to the next day.
Production inserts a sign-up for the next day.
Spend the night at Terrace Downs, which was supposed to be a regular Pit Stop.
Brought back to the bridge in the morning, but already know how to get to Terrace Downs.
-----
Take jet boat upriver. Find Detour Decision.
For teams choosing to "Rev It Up", ride ATV up the bluff to Blackford Rd.
Not sure where teams choosing "Reel It In" go, but it can't be far.
Production possibly brought the cars up to the teams?
Drive down to Mt Hutt Station (the farm of Phil's friend).
Roadblock, and the local TV crew spots them.
TV crew follows teams as they head to Terrace Downs.
Teams check in, but continue racing.
TV crew spots teams turning towards Christchurch at junction of Coleridge Rd and Hwy 77.

Teams in the American version of television’s million dollar race around the world were spotted near Methven this morning taking part in a rural themed challenge at Mount Hutt Station before heading to Terrace Downs.

It’s understood the teams arrived last night and may have camped at the Rakaia Gorge overnight before jet boating on the Rakaia River early this morning.

Teams were last seen driving north through Windwhistle.

Peach suggested in reply to one of my other posts about David's Achilles injury that I post my experience/observations here.

First off, my Achilles story. (posted originally to a board devoted to Achilles Tendon Injury Recovery) (Sorry for it's length)

Thought I would add my experience to this wonderful site. I am glad to know that I am not alone in this.

January 21, 2013 - The day of the annual Faculty - Student basketball game. Of course, the forty year old decides to show them youngsters up and play. The good news was that we beat them 36 -24. The bad news is with about 4 minutes to go in the game, I went up for a rebound, came down funny on my ankle and then immediately had an eighth grader come down on my lower calf. I thought that I had ruptured my Achilles but I also figured I was just an old guy and possibly just had a pulled calf muscle or at worst a sprained ankle. Never having sprained the ankle before, I decided to tough it out and wait the weekend to see how everything played out.

That Sunday I went into the Emergency Room where the er doctor had xrays taken of my leg and ankle and a sonagram of my leg to make sure to blood clots were present. Xrays came back negative, of course. The doctor said I had a moderate ankle sprain. RICE for 72 hours. Crutches for two weeks. Limited activity for four weeks. Back to regular exercise by 6 weeks. I was concerned about the Achilles because it felt unlike an Achilles should feel. It was soft and mushy as opposed to rigid and hard. He said that due to the swelling of the ankle it caused the Achilles to feel that way. Dreading an Achilles injury I went with his advice.

Fast forward, four and a half/five weeks weeks (February 23rd). I wake up to a purple foot and a calf that extends all the way down to my heel. I described it as a tree trunk. So it was back to the ER I went. This time the doctor told me that it was a high ankle sprain, much more severe than a moderate ankle sprain. He placed me in a boot for six weeks, immobilizing the ankle and allowing it to fully heal. He also gave me a referral to an orthopaedic.

Still believing in my heart of hearts that I had initially ruptured the Achilles I made an appointment to see the ortho on Monday, March 3rd. He took about two seconds to look at the leg and feel the leg as well to know that I had in fact ruptured the Achilles. (Of course, me flying through the roof and crying out in severe pain helped as well.)

All of this, fortunately, falls under workers’ compensation. So not only do they get to pay the bills but also drag their feet when it comes to actually allowing me to have the surgery. I was scheduled to have gone under the knife today but am now on hold until, hopefully, tomorrow afternoon.

I hope that all goes well whenever I do have the surgery. It is wonderful to know that so many have had success stories when it comes to repairing a ruptured Achilles. Out of all the injuries I could have suffered, this is the one I had nightmares about ever having. Now I get to live the nightmare.

Post by: scuzneck on March 05, 2013, 12:47:43 PM
It is said that when your Achilles' ruptures you can hear the pop. I never heard mine as I was in a loud gymnasium full of middle school students. I know that David had to have heard his pop because he knew as soon as it happened that it was ruptured. No doctor needs to tell you otherwise. You know your own body and you definitely know when this happens.

With my experience, I can definitely see why David thought he could continue on with the race. It's the competitive juices that get flowing in you. And for me there isn't even a million dollars at stake. It's the daily grind and not wanting to fully come out and say I am old and injured. lol

I am in the same boot as David was during the episode. He did everything he physically could have done. He was in pain the entire time, although not as much as the common person because of the adrenaline during the road block and detour. Driving though he would have would have been in  bunches of pain and discomfort. Also, the swelling was probably incredibly bad has he was standing on the map because he would have had little to no time to RICE the ankle. Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation.

I found a few articles from the New Zealand press about episode 3 and they had some interesting information, so I thought I'd repost them here. First is an article that gives some behind the scene details about how Christchurch and the Canterbury region was chosen as a site for the episode. It has 4 pictures from the show, but I believe we have them already in the first page of this thread, so I won't repost them here.

http://www.guardianonline.co.nz/news/millions-watch-mid-canterburys-amazing-race/ (http://www.guardianonline.co.nz/news/millions-watch-mid-canterburys-amazing-race/)

Millions watch Mid Canterbury’s ‘Amazing Race’

A classic bit of Kiwi can-do attitude convinced the producers of The Amazing Race to film in Mid Canterbury last November.

The episode featuring the Rakaia Gorge and Mt Hutt Station screened in the United States yesterday afternoon to an audience of over 10 million viewers.

Experience Mid Canterbury general manager Nigel Birt yesterday revealed that the flexibility and generosity of the local farmers and tourism operators persuaded the American producers to base one episode around Methven.

True to the title of the programme, Mr Birt said that the locals had been “amazing” to accommodate all the last minute wishes of two high-profile  Hollywood producers as they were driving and flying around the Mid Canterbury countryside.

Tourism New Zealand had secured the show as part of its international marketing programme to target overseas travellers.

Mr Birt had to act quickly as he only received 24 hours warning to put a proposal together for an unidentified reality TV show and when the producers from CBS arrived a few weeks later, he said he had to “think on his feet a bit” as the Americans tried to plan their story line around the Mid Canterbury landscape.

“They’ve got no idea what you’ve got to offer and when you show them some things, their needs will change and adapt rapidly and you then have to come up with other ideas.”

At that stage Mr Birt still did not know which show he was actually pitching for “but that became clear as the day went on. It was all a bit hush-hush”.

Mr Birt said all the locals were falling over themselves to help the Americans, which convinced them to choose the Ashburton District.

“The support from the community was huge,’’ said Mr Birt, who wanted to thank the numerous people in Mid Canterbury who were involved in the bidding process.

The show’s presenter Kiwi Phil Keoghan, who grew up in Lincoln, had been the key instigator behind the Canterbury episode after growing up in the Lincoln area and becoming Canterbury Tourism’s ambassador.

“I am very proud and, of course, very excited about letting people understand what makes Canterbury such a fantastic destination,” Mr Keoghan said.

Mr Birt was full of praise for Mr Keoghan’s initiative.

“Phil was keen to do something for Canterbury after the earthquake and help it get back on its feet. It was his initiative that made all this happen.”

The Guardian understands that several regions within Canterbury were invited to pitch for the programme to be filmed in their backyard before Mid Canterbury got the nod.

Mr Birt said the opportunities that the Rakaia Gorge had to offer and the possibility to do several activities in close proximity were the decisive factor for CBS to opt for Mid Canterbury.

“They had a very tight timeframe to work to.

“We needed to keep it compact and that’s where the gorge really suited. It had all the right ingredients, like the famers and tourism operators, complete with access tracks and incredible scenery to boot.’’

The Guardian understands from recent internet blogs the contestants flew into Christchurch from the previous stop in Tahiti, before racing quad bikes and rally cars.

Mr Keoghan himself posted about ‘the shemozzle’ at Mt Hutt Station, a rural-style combat course in which the contestants had to team up with a local shepherd and his dog while completing the course and transporting some eggs.

Like in every major operation, things did not all go as planned when the plane from Tahiti was delayed and the teams did not arrive until Sunday night, instead of Sunday morning.

The Guardian understands the contestants slept in 12 tents at the Rakaia Gorge before competing the next day and racing back to Christchurch on Monday afternoon for their next leg into Asia.

With over 140 rooms booked for the production staff involved and the art department buying everything they needed, the Methven economy received a massive boost according to locals the Guardian  talked with in November.

Mr Birt, who hopes that many Americans and other nationalities will put Mid Canterbury on their wish-list, as the show and its repeats screen around the world.

“We have just showed Mid Canterbury’s landscapes and activities to tens of millions,” he said. “We could never buy that amount of exposure”.

A spokesperson for TVNZ said the Mid Canterbury episode is likely to air on our screens in over a year. TV2 is currently showing season 18, while CBS is already into season 22.

Here's the next story, which is mainly pointing out how good the show will be for tourism:

http://tvnz.co.nz/entertainment-news/amazing-race-throws-spotlight-canterbury-5359443 (http://tvnz.co.nz/entertainment-news/amazing-race-throws-spotlight-canterbury-5359443)

The Amazing Race throws spotlight on Canterbury

Published: 3:22PM Monday March 04, 2013 Source: ONE News

Canterbury's landscapes and adventure tourism activities will get a burst of publicity to millions of TV viewers as the reality show The Amazing Race puts the spotlight on the province.

In an episode being broadcast across US prime-time TV tonight, contestants in The Amazing Race will be seen adventuring their way across the expansive Mid Canterbury region in a race to their next pit stop, at the spectacular golf resort of Terrace Downs.

The contestants will go jet boating on the Rakaia River, quad biking through high country streams, and pilot rally cars around one of New Zealand's oldest high country stations.

"We couldn't ask for better publicity for our region,'' said Experience Mid Canterbury Tourism general manager Nigel Birt.

The Amazing Race has a huge audience in the United States and many other countries and this kind of exposure is "invaluable", he said.

"It will really give viewers a taste of the adventure activities and breath-taking scenery we have to offer and hopefully inspire them to jump on a plane and come visit,'' Birt said.

Many local tourism operators assisted during the filming, which took place last November. It is the fourth time New Zealand has featured in The Amazing Race but the first time contestants in the show have visited Canterbury.

Phil Keoghan, the award-winning host of The Amazing Race, grew up in Canterbury and said as a proud ambassador for the region he is thrilled to introduce it to viewers in America and around the world.

"I am very proud and, of course, very excited about letting people understand what makes Canterbury such a fantastic destination," Keoghan said.

"I felt tremendous pride being able to share Canterbury with not only the crew but of course the millions of people around the world who will see what a special place we have. Places are about people and that will come through loud and clear during this very special episode.''

Christchurch & Canterbury Tourism chief executive Tim Hunter said he is thrilled Keoghan chose to feature Canterbury so prominently.

"Canterbury offers the perfect adventure environment for The Amazing Race. We are delighted with the outstanding audience reach that this opportunity provides in the high value US market. Hopefully it will lead to more Americans putting the Canterbury region on their must-visit list,'' Hunter said.

The Amazing Race episode featuring Canterbury goes to air on major American broadcast channel CBS today, Monday 4 March NZT (Sunday US time) and will also be broadcast in several other countries.

New Zealand viewers should get to see it on TV2 later this year.

The last one is a web page for New Zealand tourism, which has mainly a recap of the episode and some additional tourist attractions in the Christchurch area. The text isn't anything we don't know about the episode, so I won't copy it over here. I'm including it mainly because it has some nice pictures.

Which probably means that the keep on racing thing was improvised as well to get back on the original schedule.

Post by: theschnauzers on March 07, 2013, 05:36:57 PM
The thing to keep in mind about the length of pit stops is that prior to TAR 18, when the just keep racing, no rest pit stops were first introduced, the show had dropped any mention of a minimum pit stop length of 12 hours.

I think we can deduce that the show is using the actual length of rest periods to better control the timing of legs and the overall time needed for filming, so the no rest period between legs 3 and 4 were not truly improvised, but rather a use of their flexible scheduling.

Disaster curse?

I'm assuming Cleardale Station is where the car-racing took place.

The thing to keep in mind about the length of pit stops is that prior to TAR 18, when the just keep racing, no rest pit stops were first introduced, the show had dropped any mention of a minimum pit stop length of 12 hours.

I think we can deduce that the show is using the actual length of rest periods to better control the timing of legs and the overall time needed for filming, so the no rest period between legs 3 and 4 were not truly improvised, but rather a use of their flexible scheduling.

I have trouble discerning the difference between "truly improvised" and "flexible."  It seems like the same thing to me. It's clear that World Race Productions carefully adjusts the time between checkin and pit stop release to minimize the chance that any team will break away from the pack. They have to know flight schedules in particular and any Hours of Operation delays that might combine with release times to keep bunching prevalent.

What I'm getting at is that they're adjusting all of the lengths of the pit stops as they go in order to keep filming on schedule as much as possible. In the good ole days, production might have been forced to add 24 hours to a pit stop to keep things under control, these days, not so much. This last leg is an example of adjusting things in both Bora Bora and in New Zealand in order to stay as close as possible to the time sequences they planned on.

This has the effect of not having to have local production waiting when things would have otherwise fallen behind, since production would have to pay to have people waiting on standby for that leg to be filmed. So there's a clear economic factor involved and one that was harder to avoid in the early seasons. As it was, this cycle took 25 days to film, so TPTB had every economic incentive to keep things moving along.

I forgot to post this a few days ago when I found it, but found a  discussion among the local people around the mid-Canterbury area where the New Zealand episode was filmed. It's from March 4th and 5th and they were trying to find out who the pit stop greeter was. I'm not sure if we figured that out or not, so I'll post the name of the person they came up with by the end of the discussion.

Trevor taege from http://www.tobyhill.co.nz/ (http://www.tobyhill.co.nz/)

Toby Hill - Farm Tours, Riverside - Springfield, Canterbury, New Zealand

Tobyhill provides farm tours and a venue in a very picturesque setting. It can be found in the shadow of the Southern Alps in Kowai Bush, just out of Springfield, Canterbury, New Zealand

when I went to the Toby Hill Farm website, the picture of Trevor Taege looks a lot like the pit stop greeter, though the cap keeps me from being certain. I think it's probably him. A few of the pictures in Toby Hill Farm Gallery look like the pit stop location, so I believe Toby Hill Farm is either right nearby or that Trevor does tourist sheep herding and shearing demonstrations there often enough that they used pictures from Terrace Downs. For what it's worth, the Toby Hill Farm web site mentions that they have Jet Boat rides for tourists from their farm. Here's a picture taken of Phil and the greeter at the pit stop:

I have never understood why the greeters are not ID'd and thanked in the "special thanks". It is an honor, I would think a thank you to them would be nice! ???

TPTB would have "adjusted" the length of the pit stop(s) in Bora Bora to fit the planned departure time(s) for flights at the beginning of the third leg. Keep in mind that the evidence is that the flight delays and multiple connections is what led TPTB to make the speculated changes (camping out at the site where they got their numbers after reaching Christchurch).

One thing to keep in mind. Ever since the show started filming in HD, they have tried to not start or finish legs at night as much as possible. They're not always able to do that, but that partially explains the variability of the length of pit stops.
