Since my alma mater (Miami) is playing their 3rd round game in the NCAA tournament tonight (starting even later than TAR by about 17 minutes) I will be recording both and switching channels back and forth.

I'll be monitoring this thread to see what is going on and will watch the episode later tonight. So please do a good job!

Previously on The Amazing Race...

Wow! There's an apology by Phil at the beginning about last week's broadcast in Vietnam. :ascared

8 teams raced from Bali to Hanoi. Dave & Connor decided to quit the race. :'(

With the double U-Turn, five teams came up with a plan to target the remainder 3-person alliance (roller derby + YouTube). Pam & Winnie U-Turned Joey & Meghan and won the leg. Joey & Meghan U-Turned Chuck & Wynona. Chuck & Wynona struggled with the language barrier and with each other, but survived.

7 teams remain. Who will be eliminated next?

Wynona: Mr. Know-It-All! :lol3:

The apology was in reference to the song sang at the roadblock.

Pretty sure it was the B52 site, that was a lot more offensive because of the plaque there

Pam & Winnie depart first at 10:40 PM. Teams have to figure out that they have to go to Maun, Botswana. Then they will sign up for 1 of 3 flights to the Makgadikgadi Pans National Park. Once there, they will find their next clue. Pam & Winnie hope they're going to get into a rhythm...

Max & Katie depart at 11:34 PM. Max doesn't want people to think he's carrying their team along. :lol3: "Big hair, big brain."

Mona & Beth depart at 11:37 PM. They have to figure out where Maun is. They think they're pretty strong.

Bates & Anthony depart at 11:39 PM. They think Maun is in Kenya.

Caroline & Jennifer deprat at 11:46 PM. They're excited about going to Africa! :hearts: Their ideal final 3 is them, Bates & Anthony and Max & Katie. They think it's in Kenya too.

Someone is standing in front of the travel agency. They have to get the country right before they can go in. Pam & Winnie figure out that everyone is going to be on the same flight as them.

Max & Katie get in. Mona & Beth get someone with a smartphone. Caroline & Jennifer guess Kenya, but it's wrong. Max & Katie tell them Botswana from inside. Mona & Beth get in. Caroline & Jennifer help Bates & Anthony get in.

Joey & Meghan depart at 12:47 AM. They still seem bitter over the U-Turn.

Chuck & Wynona depart at 3:26 AM. :o Third leg in a row that they've started in last.

Joey & Meghan get their tuckets. Chuck & Wynona arrive at the travel agency and they're just guessing countries... Chuck finally gets it right! :lol3:

Chuck & Wynona see Joey & Meghan at the airport. Joey & Meghan approach Chuck & Wynona at the airport... Wynona seems pretty upset over the U-Turn.

Joey & Meghan approach Pam & Winnie who are sitting with the other teams.
Joey: "What was the prize you stole from us?" :lol3:

All teams are on the same flight to Maun, Botswana.

Why do teams have to guess which country they are heading? :gaah: I wanted them to get on the wrong flight. :lol:

However, Chuck & Wynona guessing Bangladesh and Turkey as the "Maun" city was priceless! :luvya:

And we're back!

The first teams are boarding an African safari flight. Bates & Anthony think about getting romantic with Caroline & Jennifer. GAG. GAG. GAG. GAG. SHOULD I KEEP GAGGING. Caroline & Jennifer tease Bates & Anthony about being babies.

Elephants!

Second flight departs. Joey acts really scared. Katie says they would have enjoyed the flight more with any other team. WELL TOO BAD.

Chuck: "Well this is where Lion King was made." :lol3: Mona & Beth laugh. oh golly. :lol3:

Chuck thinks this is where the Lion King was filmed

Post by: Polaroid on March 24, 2013, 08:07:48 PM
First flight lands. Caroline & Jennifer get the first clue. Drive down Old Xhumaga Road and search for the next clue. Bates & Anthony and Caroline & Jennifer start driving.

Second flight lands. Joey & Meghan and Max & Katie start driving.

First two teams find the clue in jars. Bates: "Uh oh, I think we have too many clothes on!"

Roadblock: Who wants to make a new friend? The Kalahari bushmen will lead them to a place to search for scorpions. They will have to dig up a scorpion. Teams will then be led to a trunk to get their next clue.

The bushmen spot a lion with Caroline. Caroline: "Don't be scared!" :lol3:

Last flight touches down.

Second flight arrives at the roadblock.

Post by: Polaroid on March 24, 2013, 08:09:22 PM
Bates starts digging for his scorpion... Caroline starts digging.

Max: "These guy don't have dayjobs. They're not actors... They're the real deal." :lol3: Max just starts talking.

Joey: "I don't want to frickin' touch it!" He's jumping around. :lol3:

Bates digs up the scorpion. Bates: "I don't mind being pinched." Anthony: "By the country singers." :lol3:
Title: Re: TAR 22 Ep 6 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **Please read the rules**
Post by: Polaroid on March 24, 2013, 08:11:17 PM
Max is wearing a glove to anticipate being pinched by something nasty.

Joey: "I'm only 21... I don't want to die!"

Bates finishes the roadblock first. Keep going down Old Xhumaga Road with the bushmen in the back! :lol3:

Caroline gets her scorpion. The bushmen starts putting the scorpion in his mouth... that's disgusting. "It's taking a nap in my hand... Okay... Good night." :lol3:

Mona & Beth get to the roadblock a quite before Chuck & Wynona and Pam & Winnie. Wynona does the roadblock because she pretty much has to. :stare

Joey is digging with a stick because he's afraid. Max has a glove on.

Mona finds her scorpion and gets it in the jar. Wow they made up time!

Max digs up a scorpion and he starts freaking out! :lol3: Max is freaking out at the bushman putting the scorpion in his mouth. Max had his mouth wide open... and then he decided to shut it before the bushman put it in his mouth! :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:

And we're back with Joey freaking out. The bushman tells Joey that he's cleaning the scorpion by putting it in his mouth. :lol3: Joey freaked out when the bushman put the scorpion in his hand.

Bates tried to get the bushmen to sing a song. :lol3: They can't understand him. They reach the clue box first.

Detour: Fire or Fowl

Fire: Walk with the bushmen to a local campsite and learn how to make fire with two sticks, elephant manure and tinder (not sure... missed the last one)?

Fowl: Set up a trap to catch a guinea fowl. Then they have to act like a fowl and activate the trap to get their next clue.

Post by: Polaroid on March 24, 2013, 08:20:43 PM
Teams have to imitate when the bushmen make animal noises. :lol3: Caroline & Jennifer choose fire... and then make great noises. :lol3:

Joey & Meghan are out of the detour. Chuck & Wynona and Pam & Winnie are still left.

Bates & Anthony watched a demonstration of the firemaking. Now they're trying.

Caroline & Jennifer start fire...

Katie: "It smells really good in this car right now..."

Max & Katie and Mona & Beth both pick fire. Katie: "My god, they stink. Really bushmen?" :res:

Both teams find their scorpion. Wynona: "Am I going to die if this thing bites me?" Pam & Winnie leave before Chuck & Wynona.

Bates starts getting flames... They started the fire! And how the bushman's pipe works! Make your way on foot with the bushmen to the next pit stop. Pit stop: Meno A Kwena Safari Camp. Last team may be eliminated.

Post by: Polaroid on March 24, 2013, 08:25:34 PM
Caroline & Jennifer are having trouble with the detour. Mona & beth and Max & Katie arrive. Apparently Joey is pretty close friends with the bushmen. Joey: "I'll tweet you." Bushmen: "Keep going straight." :lol3:

Bates & Anthony are team #1! They've won a trip to Phuket, Thailand.

Pit stop:
1st - Bates & Anthony

Bates: "We're getting stronger... at least our body odour is." :lol3:

Mona & Beth are struggling with the fire. Max likes having his lighter when using pipes... not a stick and poo. :lol3:

Pam & Winnie: "We're smuggling bushmen." :lol3: They're doing fowl because they know how hard it is to start a fire.
Title: Re: TAR 22 Ep 6 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **Please read the rules**
Post by: Polaroid on March 24, 2013, 08:28:53 PM
Chuck & Wynona pick fowl. Chuck has done a lot of trapping. Chuck: "This is like how I hunt deer in Alabama!"

Teams are still struggling with fire... lol @ Pam & Winnie imitating the walk and noises of the bushmen. They start making their trap. Chuck & Wynona arrive. Pam & Winnie get nervous. "Chuck probably brushes his teeth and makes a snare..." :lol3:
Title: Re: TAR 22 Ep 6 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **Please read the rules**
Post by: Polaroid on March 24, 2013, 08:30:28 PM
Caroline & Jennifer decide to switch. Joey & Meghan decide to switch. Mona & Beth decide to switch too! :ascared Max & Katie decide to stay for a little longer.

Chuck didn't have a job in high school and he set up traps and snares... Wynona didn't know that about him. :lol3: They're so amazing.

Pam & Winnie finish the detour... IN SECOND! They're off to the pit stop.

Max & Katie are struggling big time. Commercial.

Pretty boring episode.

Very shocked at Max & Katie getting last (not surprised at the NEL, though)

Props to C/W getting into the Top 3! :hearts:

Other than those I don't really have much else to say ..

Last time on The Amazing Race... 8 teams race on to Hanoi, Vietnam!

Father and son made the decision to quit the race and say goodbye.

5 teams set their minds to U-TURN Joey and Meghan and Mona and Beth.

Joey and Meghan and Chuck and Wynona survived the raceeeeee!

7 teams remain, who will be eliminated next.

Wynona: MR KNOW IT ALL. THIS SHOULD BE THE EPISODE QUOTE RIGHT? LOL

I guess it wasn't too hard to call that it was a non-elimation, but that's more or less the only thing I got right in my prediction about placements.... Looking forward to the next leg.

They didn't have to do much in the scorpion task.  The fire making was the main highlight as far as the race tension.  A weakness of wilderness area legs is that they rarely seem to have any navigation.  Though I remember in classic earlier seasons they still had them driving to find route markers in the desert.  It always felt like a non-elimination, and that combined with the shortness of the leg in Africa made it an average kind of episode.  The leg seemed more about getting responses for the camera (in reaction to the scorpion, getting caught in the trap) than anything else.

Out of no where the last 2 teams checked in 2nd and 3rd and the 4 teams all swopped Detour, out of no where Max and Katie and Mona and Beth who completed RB in 3rd and 4th were in last place.

AND AS IF IT'S NOT ENOUGH... The editor tries to throw us off by showing those comments about Mona and Beth wanting to drive to the pitstop.

AND THEN MAX AND KATIE COMPLETED THEIR DETOUR.

AND THEN FOOT RACE.

AND THEN PIT-STOP.

I believe kudos are due to Dr. Rox. Note that Chuck only got it right after using someone's (presumably his taxi driver's) cellphone.

Any historian of Amazing Races knows that those potential water towers cited in one of the threads (maybe it's even earlier in this one) were the water tower or grain elevator (not too likely as why would there be any in an area not known for grain production) shown in Maun in Amazing Race 7 episode 6. The end of that episode was a pit stop in the same Makgadikgali Pans, cited by Phil as the largest salt pans in the world.

Nobody said that Wynona would have found a Botswana visa in her passport. Chuck and Wynona did not find one there for the reason you cited, Chateau: U.S. citizens are permitted stays up to 90 days total within a 12-month periodwithout a visa.

However, what I did say is that chuck's cellphone was the eventual conduit for the needed information on where Maun is to get into the travel agency.

And they certainly have not applied for Survivor either!  Every Survivor contestant I have ever talked to learned how to make a fire with sticks before going.  I think the technique used in the detour is tough to do.  Blisters-a-plenty that way.  The split bamboo technique, shown on Survivor, looks much easier.

Chateau, personally I think you are completely wrong in your assumption that Wynona did not have a visa for Botswana in her passport. From your link, it is true that US passport holders do not need a visa to enter Botswana, if they enter Botswana as tourists or visitors.

So the question is, do TAR racers enter foreign countries as tourists/visitors? I think not. For many reasons (legal,liability,etc), I suspect they are listed on the books as employees of WRP. It only makes sense.

So now we get to the question of WRP. Does it enter a county as a "tourist organization," such as a tour operator? No, it is a commerical/business operation/venture. As such, the rules governing entering a country are much different than the rules for tourists/visitors. From the main webpage that you listed, commerical filming in Botswana requires a filming permit. One of the questions on that permit is a list of all employees.

Also from that website, for a foreign national to work in Botswana, a "work permit" is required. Guess what??....to get a "work permit" to work in Botswana, you have to fill out a Visa application.

From my own experience as an ex-pat living and working abroad, I know it was always much more complicated for me to get my "papers in order" than for normal tourists. So I will reiterate that it is/was perfectly possible for Wynona to come up with Botswana from her passport. So there is a good question to ask the racers at either TARcon or any other watching party.....did/do they have visas for every country they visit.

One question I have always had about TAR is this. Do they outsource the visa aquisition process to a visa service or do they have an inhouse department that does this. What I mean, does WRP actually have an employee(s) that actually walk the passports to the different consulates or do they pay another company to walk the passports around. Many, but not all, countries will let you mail your passport to their consulate/embassy to get a Visa, but I would think that WRP would actually walk them to the consulate, since they have to get visa for so many people, racers, crew,management. I just can't see an operation that is as big as WRP trusting the mail system.

I certainly could be wrong.

It is my understanding that they do NOT have visas for all countries, that they receive tourist visas, that some visas are purchased (when allowed) on site with some of the allocated funds.

Okay, we can ask but they can't tell!

However, I bet they get to travel as if they are tourists.   ;)

Would a travel blogger have to get a visa just because they are going to make a living by their writing?

As long as you stay a limited time and your work is not paid for by a local company you generally can get by on a tourist visa. Of course exceptions apply, like a foreign journalist who wishes to report from the USA must get a special visa.

But I would expect that in almost all cases the racers as well as WRP can get by on tourist visas.

From past discussion related to prior Amazing Race seasons, and I don't remember precisely when it was (although Peach might), the standard procedure for every Amazing Race is for World Race Productions to place a large number of visas into each racer's passport before their race begins. A minority of them are countries they will actually be visiting but there will also be a majority of irrelevant ones to disguise where they will be really going.

Actually you have to take the process one step further. In the early seasons (at a minimum) teams had to sign or otherwise fill out visa applications for some of the countries (the producers were able to do this for other countries) and this would be done before the final selection of teams during the final interviews.

The teams would see visas for countries in their passports some of which were not going to be visited. Another thing to keep in mind is that the producers would have to have visas for backup or alternate legs as well as the primary destinations that TPTB plan to go to for that season.

So the presence of additional visas isn't just to obscure the actual countries the teams may visit, it's also to have the paperwork done for countries that may have to be used at the last minute.

Might be a good question to ask some of the recent season racers, especially since the question keeps coming up.
