Previously on The Amazing Race...

5 teams raced from Switzerland to Berlin, Germany. Caroline & Jennifer tried to stop racing with Bates & Anthony, but that didn't really work out...

Bates & Anthony crashed at the detour when one of their letters fell and cracked.

Katie mastered a mind-bending roadblock, helping her and Max win their first leg of the race and two cars!

Mona & Beth raced Bates & Anthony for last place... Bates & Anthony beat Mona & Beth in a footrace, but Mona & Beth were spared elimination.

5 teams remain... who will be eliminated next?

Max & Katie depart 1st at 2:02 AM. Fly to the city of Edinburgh, Scotland. When the land, they will pick up a Ford Fiesta and drive to Gosford House. Careful... U-Turn ahead! They're racing for themselves... not for any other team. They can see the million dollars in front of them. They go to research flights.

Joey & Meghan depart 2nd at 2:49 AM. They're worried about the U-Turn!

Caroline & Jennifer depart 3rd at 3:44 AM. They joke that they will U-Turn the boys...

Joey & Meghan are at the airport but they see everything is closed. Caroline & Jennifer see everything is closed as well.

Katie finds a flight for 10:40 AM.

Bates & Anthony depart at 4:20 AM.

Mona & Beth depart at 4:21 AM.

Well, there you go. Youtube can't U-Turn. Maybe they'll do what Dustin/Kandice had Cha Cha Cha do (with Mona/Beth)
Title: Re: TAR 22 Ep 10 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **Please read the rules**
Post by: Polaroid on April 28, 2013, 07:10:45 PM
Joey & Meghan greet Max & Katie at the airport... but Max & Katie lie about the fact that they don't have a flight.

Joey & Meghan are first in line. All the other teams are lined up except for Max & Katie... But they go line up just to trick the other teams. Max & Katie makes sure that the alliance is still in tact to U-Turn YouTube and roller derby...

Mona & Beth and Joey & Meghan get the last flight for 1:00 PM... OMG. Caroline & Jennifer and Bates & Anthony won't get in until 4:00 PM??? Caroline & Jennifer say that Joey & Meghan can't U-Turn. Interesting.

Bates & Anthony find the 10:40 AM flight. Uh oh. Caroline & Jennifer find the 10:40 AM flight as well...

Max & Katie get on their flight... and they see Bates & Anthony and Caroline & Jennifer getting on...

omg Joey & Meghan and Mona & Beth think that they're on the first flight... awkward.

First flight arrives... Mad airport dash. The first group counts that all the cars are there. Max & Katie say that they have a 1-2 hour cushion. Anthony & Bates say that the first two teams to arrive at the U-Turn will U-Turn YouTube and derby.

lol @ country singers clutch trouble.

Max & Katie arrive at the castle. They're greeted with bagpipes! Roadblock! Working with an instructor, teams will have to learn to play a harmonizing note and march through the house. Max is doing the roadblock. Bates & Anthony arrive. Bates is doing the roadblock.

Bates is half Scottish. He hopes that this will work out.

Max: "What's worn under the kilt will forever remain a secret..." :lol3: Max gets taught how to play the bagpipe.

Bates kept his underwear on because he knew that he would have to wear a kilt. That's nice.

Caroline & Jennifer arrive at the roadblock. Caroline does the roadblock.

Max goes for his first attempt. Wow! He finishes the roadblock! Proceed to Craigmillar Castle for the next clue.

Anthony blocks Jennifer's mouth while Bates is going for his attempt LOL. Bates gets approval for his first attempt as well.

Post by: Polaroid on April 28, 2013, 07:17:20 PM
Caroline's mouth starts to hurt during the middle of her attempt. She has to redo it.

The last flight arrives... Meghan feels good. :groan: Mona & Beth were feeling excited as well. :groan: Both teams realize that all the other cars were gone... Awkward. Very awkward. Joey thinks it's very possible that the're going to get U-Turned...

Commercial.

This is the kind of Roadblock that gets harder over time. It's much harder to play a musical instrument after your mouth gets tired of playing.

Oh man, what a brutal detour for the racers as it relates to the U-Turn
Title: Re: TAR 22 Ep 10 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **Please read the rules**
Post by: Polaroid on April 28, 2013, 07:24:15 PM
And we're back. Mona & Beth are teary-eyed in their confessional. Both teams are upset that they're racing against each other for last. :(

Caroline fails another attempt. Caroline: "My mouth isn't working now." WOW. Caroline goes through 7 attempts... Insane. She finally gets it on her 7th attempt. Jennifer runs up the stairs to hug Caroline.

Bates & Anthony reach the castle in first. They're looking inside the castle for their clue. They find it in the fireplace. Detour! Tasty Puddin' or Whiskey Rollin'.

Tasty Puddin': Use an ox's intestine and put an assorted number of yucky organs. Once they finish 4 portions and get a taste, they will get their next clue.

Whiskey Rollin': Deliver 8 barrels 200 yards. Once they do this, they'll get their next clue.

Bates & Anthony pick barrel. Max & Katie pick pudding.

Post by: Polaroid on April 28, 2013, 07:27:12 PM
Mona & Beth reach the castle. Joey & Meghan arrive right after. Mona chooses to do the roadblock. Meghan chooses to do the roadblock. Meghan thinks that she can easily do this.

Caroline & Jennifer can't find their detour clue... They're searching the castle but they can't find it.

Bates & Anthony arrive at barrels. They start rolling them up the hill. It's apparently about 100 pounds. They decide to carry it instead of rolling... :oh They deliver their first 2 barrels... and they're both hunched over in exhaustion.

Max & Katie arrive at the nasty organ challenge, lol.

Caroline & Jennifer still can't find their clue... THEY FINALLY FIND IT. They pick pudding.

Post by: Polaroid on April 28, 2013, 07:30:57 PM
Bates & Anthony finish 6/8 of their barrels.

Max & Katie watch some guy working on the haggis thing. Max says the meat smells good but he says he can smell the sheep's last meal. Ew. A Robert Burns impersonator recites something for Max & Katie.

Mona goes for her first attempt. Beth says Mona has a lot of hot air.

Meghan says she basically made out with the instructor because the he kept putting his mouth on her bagpipe. :lol3: She hopes his saliva will give her superpowers... lol.

Mona finishes the roadblock. They're off to the castle.

Meghan needs to put more air into the bagpipe... But she doesn't think she can. Commercial.

And we're back! Meghan decides to go for a first attempt. Meghan finishes the roadblock! And now they're off to the castle. lolol Meghan runs the wrong way.

Bates says he has the same body as Greek gods. :lol3: They're done the detour! Now they're off to Duddinston Kirk to find their next clue.

Max & Katie are still making their haggis... The Robert Burns impersonator is still reciting stuff. :lol3: Max & Katie kind of want to try the haggis... Famous last words. :lol3: Their 4 portions get approved and now they try it... They both like the taste. They're done the detour in 2nd.

Bates & Anthony U-Turn Meghan & Joey... They say Joey & Meghan can't U-Turn anyone. Hm. Weird. Pit stop: Niddry Street South. Bates & Anthony proceed to the pit stop.

Max & Katie choose to U-Turn Mona & Beth. Damn. They're off to the pit stop. Katie wants Meghan & Joey gone more.

Caroline & Jennifer sort of flirt with Robert Burns impersonator. :lol3:

If the new alliance of three was smart they would have agreed to only Uturn Meghan and Joey and not use the second spot, since M/J can't Uturn they would surely be eliminated

That's probably the most respectful U-Turn in the show's history. Gives those two a chance. However, if Maxie wanted Mona & Beth to stay, they should have U-Turned Bates & Anthony to "off-set" the U-Turn.  FTR, Mona/Beth already have a speedbump
Title: Re: TAR 22 Ep 10 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **Please read the rules**
Post by: Polaroid on April 28, 2013, 07:41:49 PM
Mona & Beth find their speedbump... Play Skittles... Basically bowling but without holes in the balls. They have to get a strike to complete the speedbump. They get directions from a random old man...? LOL.

Joey estimates that Mona & Beth are about 30 minutes ahead... Wow.

Mona & Beth arrive at the bowling speedbump. They have to knock all 10 pins down and they have to alternate.

Race to the pit stop between Bates & Anthony and Max & Katie... WOW. Max & Katie reach the pit stop first... The pit stop greeter is Jekyll & Hyde. They won 10K each!

Bates & Anthony are team #2...

Pit stop:
1st: Max & Katie
2nd: Bates & Anthony

Caroline & Jennifer are done the detour and they see that the U-Turns have been used. They're off to the pit stop.

Joey & Meghan seem like they're kind of lost.

Back with Mona & Beth. The lane is sort of slanted... On their 16th attempt, they finally knock out all the pins. Joey & Meghan and Mona & Beth both arrive back at the castle at the same time... It's completely dark outside.

Joey & Meghan find the clue first. Joey doesn't know what haggis is... Meghan says he doesn't want to know. :lol3: Mona & Beth find the clue next. They both pick pudding.

Caroline & Jennifer arrive at the pit stop... They're team #3.

Pit stop:
1st: Max & Katie
2nd: Bates & Anthony
3rd: Caroline & Jennifer

Mona & Beth and Joey & Meghan arrive at the haggis place. Mona & Beth get motivated to try to beat Joey & Meghan. Meghan says the intestines feel like wet socks on... This is pretty intense. Mona & Beth taste the haggis... Beth pretends it's so good but she says it's disgusting. Mona & Beth get out of the detour before Joey & Meghan but they see that they've been U-Turned...

Joey: "Praying that we didn't get U-Turned..."

I think the reason they didn't is because the first three teams don't really care who gets eliminated. They'd rather it be Joey and Meghan, but they'd definitely take not having Beth and Mona there either.

Also they might just not have thought of it. Sri Lanka were pretty clever.

And we're back. Mona & Beth go to do the barrel detour.

Mona & Beth try to stealthily roll their barrels... but Joey & Meghan see that Mona & Beth have been U-Turned.

Mona & Beth: 2/8 barrels.

Joey & Meghan give the haggis a taste. And they reach the U-Turn board to see that they've been U-Turned as well.

Beth: "I smell like haggis... and sweat."

Mona & Beth: 4/8 barrels

Meghan is having trouble pushing the barrel. Joey & Meghan: 2/8 barrels
Mona & Beth: 6/8 barrels

Joey & Meghan are pushing 1 barrel at a time now. Joey & Meghan: 3/8 barrels.

Mona & Beth finish delivering their barrels... They're off to the pit stop.

Joey & Meghan: 7/8 barrels.

Beth went the wrong way methinks... They get directions and turn their car around.

Joey & Meghan finish the detour... Meghan: "How do you U-Turn faces like that?" Meghan asks for directions and they're off to the pit stop... Meghan: "Maybe another team got lost?" lol.

Mona & Beth are confused... and now they're stuck behind a bus. They missed a light because of a huge light. Joey & Meghan and Mona & Beth are racing to the pit stop...

And...

Mona & Beth arrive first. They're team #4. They both look like they're about to cry in their confessional.

Joey & Meghan are the last team to arrive. Phil points out that Meghan is smiling and this time Joey is crying. They've been eliminated... Both Joey & Meghan are crying now. :'( But a happy cry.

Pit stop:
1st: Max & Katie
2nd: Bates & Anthony
3rd: Caroline & Jennifer
4th: Mona & Beth
5th: Joey & Meghan - ELIMINATED

You're right I think. At least they didn't use the U-Turn as in the last season :)
I think the reason they didn't is because the first three teams don't really care who gets eliminated. They'd rather it be Joey and Meghan, but they'd definitely take not having Beth and Mona there either.

Also they might just not have thought of it. Sri Lanka were pretty clever.

The reason why they didn't do the same use of the U-Turn as in last season is because they were filming this season while the previous season was aired.

These alliances kill me. I would think if Bats and Anthony had half a brain, they would have U-turned Max and Katie. Would you not want to go up against a bunch of weaker teams.

I couldn't really pay attention to this episode because relatives were interrupting and it was kind of awkward :gaah:

The Roadblock was... loud :lol: but in all honesty, it was pretty boring and not too exciting.

The Detour was great, I guess.

Is this the first time since the Double U-Turn's introduction when 4 teams were actually involved in the U-Turn? (2 users + 2 victims)

I like it when legs taking place in the daytime fall into nighttime. I just like to see locations both in daytime-view and nighttime-view (like TAR 19 in Brussels... the Attomium looked beautiful in both views!)

This is like last season! An alliance consisting of 3 teams vs. 1! :lol:

I have no problem with any of these teams winning :hearts:

Can't believe it's the finale already! Where has this great season gone?!

For the first time in a long time, keeping at it in an airport for the earlier arriving flights matter a lot. More or less decided the U-Turn use since the three leading team arriving first knew they were ahead by a couple of hours, and I suspect any of the three teams would have picked the back two for the U-Turn.

I wonder how many hours Mona-Beth are behind the lead teams, since it was just after sunset when the first two teams reached Phil and the pit stop.

I think that Bates and Anthony may wanted to help Mona and Beth out because of what happend in Berlin. They help them twice. First with the clue box and second on the way to the pit stop. U-turning Meghan and Joey helped Mona and Beth, even though they probably were going to be U-turned anyway.

Since Maxie said they're rather have Mona/Beth survive, they had control in terms of that result.  Especially given the fact that Mona/Beth had a Speed Bump.  That being said, ITA; hats off to Maxie.  It's a game, and they were not obligated to do so.  Respect to them because it made things fair for the two last-place teams.  Fight it out for a chance at the finale (unlike past seasons where one team would get targeted and lose because of that).  And respect for the Moms since they DID have the Speedbump, survived, and didn't need any assistance!

Overall, this episode was pretty good. Airport drama is always entertaining. I know the castles in Edinburgh are magnificent, but the tasks... not so much. Firstly, the Roadblock was boring despite the unique toughness I like in challenges. Walking around in a square blowing a tune into a bagpipe wasn't very cool. Mona & Beth's bowling Speed Bump was pretty funny when they freaked out in their first tries. The redeeming moment of the episode. The Detour was shockingly good. :stare I didn't like the poet reenactor's haggis remarks as it got annoying, but Caroline & Jennifer is factor that made him tolerable. The whiskey barrel rolling felt like the good ol' TAR days. Feels like something season 14 would have done in one of the Europeab legs. I don't know why, it just feels fun.

well, i was starting to love YouTube and then this happened...so here's my thoughts:

Max & Katie: After Pam & Winnie, these 2 r the most ugly characters in the history of the show; so they can go to hell if possible.

Caroline & Jennifer: Kinda shocks me they're still in....they never stood up during the whole season! They're so forgettable because of the fact that they're only in it thanks to the protection of someone else, not for their own efforts.

Bates & Anthony: Assclowns, why keeping the newlyweds?? Can't u see they're getting stronger? Don't u wanna secure the winning?

Mona & Beth: Please win this season..................please do it.!!

Also, they probably want the Country Singers with them to the finals. They knew Max and Katie were second. Why let the risk of the Country Singers being eliminated (even though it was probably not going to happen) when they could help them by U-Turing Joey and Meghan, who was in the other alliance?

Whiskey rollin' obviously would suggest that you have to roll them, gives them even more of an advantage if they can carry.

Nobody left for me to root for now anyway, the crap information the last two teams were given at the airport basically decided the whole leg and meant the other teams were completely safe.  The usual editing to make out the end was close, but I doubt that had many fooled.

Great job on specing out the episode. That photo of B/A running by the Bank Hotel was their run up that Niddry Street to the pit stop. It did seem that Phil and the mat were a long way down that little street/alley. You probably would have seen it from Cowgate.

I think the moms and Joey and Meghan can only blame themselves for not checking twice. But then again they had some bad luck there. Had they not get on and went to ask, I think they would have been on the earlier flight too. Just that it was too careless of them to not check... but it could have happened to any team. The only team that deserved credits for checking the earliest flight is Max and Katie here. And for that, they deserved to win the Leg, IMHO.

Loved the Roadblock, Detour and Speedbump. So SCOTTISH! The pit-stop greeter is really interesting too and I remembered taking a tour with my tour guide dressed the same way as him too! Kudos to Max for guessing correctly who he is!

Was rooting for Joey and Meghan. But props to the moms... Joey and Meghan behaved like they were on a holiday. -_-

Post by: Leilani on April 29, 2013, 10:06:24 AM
It would have made the episode a little more interesting/suspenseful if the roadblock was after the double u-turn.  I know the producers had no idea that Max/Katie, Bates/Anthony & Caroline/Jennifer would get there so far ahead of Joey/Mehgan & Mona/Beth, but the odds were high that at least one team would get an earlier flight.  So unless they thought the bagpipes was going to be more of a challenge than it was for most of them, having the roadblock first and the u-turn board with the clue to the pit stop was just anti-climactic. 

I know it's easier to think these things through as viewers, but it would have been nice if Bates/Anthony decided not to use the u-turn.  They knew they were one of the first three teams to arrive in Edinburgh & they knew that the roadblock didn't take them very long so even though they had no idea how many clues were still hidden in the fireplaces they should have known that they were in the top three.  Knowing all that the only reason to use the u-turn would be either they wanted to give Caroline/Jennifer a cushion in case they fell behind or as someone else mentioned to help Mona/Beth catch up as a thank you for helping them.  Unfortunately for us, this meant that as soon as they did that we knew that it was either going to be Bates/Anthony or Max/Katie in first Caroline/Jennifer in third and Mehgan/Joey & Mona/Beth battling for last.  Seeing how Bates/Anthony had a hard time moving the barrels it wasn't a stretch to see that Mehgan/Joey would struggle and probably be eliminated.

It would have been more interesting if Bates/Anthony didn't u-turn anyone and if Max/Katie u-turned Mona/Beth.  Then we could have seen if Mona/Beth would have u-turned on Mehgan/Joey to save themselves (which would have been the smart thing to do).

Previous seasons have shown that there are so many things that can factor into the final leg that it's not necessarily going to be an easy win if you bring "weaker" teams with you.  As we saw last season, while it's nice to win prizes it's only important to not come in last on every leg and first on the last leg when it counts.

If Bates&Anthony did not U-TURN Joey&Meghan, Maxie would have done it anyway I think.They were so vocal about this. They did say they want Joey&Meghan out first

Then Carol&Jen would have gotten to the U-TURN mat 3rd, wondering why Bates&Anthony did not utilize the U-TURN. Maybe they got lost. And Carol&Jen would end up U-TURN Mona&Beth to save Bates&Anthony, thinking they hadn't completed the detour yet.

and also, i think the producer is aware with the 10.40 am flight, maybe even think that all teams would get on that flight. JoeyMeghan and MonaBeth are just not aware of it, even think they gain a 3-hours-lead ahead of those three.

Just agree with everything. That's why Bates and Anthony should have used the U-Turn on the Newlyweds - They know that they would be top 3 on that leg...so they could guarantee the prize by arriving 1st. But no, let's U-Turn the teams that aren't even here in Scotland ...dumb decisions lead to dumb 2nd place :P

But is it always that, or that some get crap information and some are just luckier to get good information.  It's the same often with directions on route to a detour / roadblock as well.  Some people know the best way and some don't, you just have to hope you are lucky and meet the right person.

Joey and Meghan behaved like they were on a holiday. -_-

I really don't see that at all, don't know where you got that from.

I believe this means Joey and Meghan are the first team to be U-Turned twice in the same season?

Yes, that's right. I checked on AR12 (when Uturns started) to AR21 and there were no instances of being U-Turned twice.

Overall, this episode was pretty good. Airport drama is always entertaining. I know the castles in Edinburgh are magnificent, but the tasks... not so much. Firstly, the Roadblock was boring despite the unique toughness I like in challenges. Walking around in a square blowing a tune into a bagpipe wasn't very cool. Mona & Beth's bowling Speed Bump was pretty funny when they freaked out in their first tries. The redeeming moment of the episode. The Detour was shockingly good. :stare I didn't like the poet reenactor's haggis remarks as it got annoying, but Caroline & Jennifer is factor that made him tolerable. The whiskey barrel rolling felt like the good ol' TAR days. Feels like something season 14 would have done in one of the Europeab legs. I don't know why, it just feels fun.

I guess that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I love to hear good bagpipe music (and the Royal Scots are right up there with the best) anywhere anytime. It made an excellent ROADBLOCK along with the kilts in my opinion.

Finally watched the show, and am even more annoyed as I walked past the designated parking area on the royal mile twice and never saw the cars or the flag   :tantrum

Did anybody else think that this Speed Bump was the hardest ever?

No, the Malawi slide puzzle had to be the hardest.

Oh, I forgot about that one.

The bagpipe thing was ok but it looked like only one team could do it at a time, I'm really tired of those kind of challenges.

I wish they showed more of the Roadblock preparations like season 10's classical music sheet Detour choice in Ukraine with Tyler & James and Rob & Kim.

In this case it was entirely JM and MB's fault for getting confident and assuming there were no earlier flights. The current rules allow you to book any number of tickets, so why not do your homework and always keep looking for something better?

I don't believe that's quite right. I have posted previously on the "Y" class fare, which allows teams instant transferability to any valid alternate routing without penalty (except to the much higher fare that World Race Production has to pay for it). That means teams make multiple reservations if that is feasible, get one ticket and exchange it for another one if a better flight combination comes to their attention.

Welcome back Xarles! You might want to send a PM to TexasLady. She was able to help with an old abandoned account I had and merged it with my current account.

Xarles IS back as Xarles! Thanks to Georgia Peach and Texas Lady!!! Thanks for your welcoming, Alenaveda & Plaidmoon. So nice to finally be able to be back in touch. Of course I never took my eyes away from the forum, but was reluctant to open a new account, which I finally did but cancelled it again so I can keep being Xarles with the help of the distinguished ladies from Georgia and Texas!!!

Welcome back anyway! I always place my passwords in a safely backed up location, even the ones that Firefox won't store. Makes retrieval much easier.

by the way, did you notice during Mona & Beth for Haggis with Clue but you see back boys crew stuff trying give a clue?

So it's the crew that decides whether a team is ready to move on in a challenge like that and not those supposed to be judging?  Looks a bit strange.

I think that has probably always been the case. The local "judges" may have some influence but WRP can't let them completely run the race

From talking to the folks at the Sheep Heid Inn, Bertram Van Munster was in the pub buying everyone drinks, so if anyone had a say on when to award the clue, I'm guessing it would be him.

I woudn't describe it as running the race more simply using their expertise to ensure a decision is fair.  I would be happier with them having more say.

I'm not surprised since Bertram is generally around for every leg. The image made me chuckle though. I imagine they had enough barrels of whiskey to keep everyone happy.

Thanks for all the information you dug up for this leg. It really made this leg much more interesting for me (and others I expect).    :hoot:
