So, I just got done re-watching the whitewater rafting task in the Abu Dhabi episode, and I'm shocked I didn't comment on it in this thread before.

No ifs ands or buts about it, this was a STUPID idea by producers. This ranks up there as one of the most unsafe tasks TAR has ever done before. For those of you who don't know, imagine the TAR23 task where they had to ride down the rafting course and grab three flags. It's the same here, except the executives apparently decided this wasn't interesting enough. So, to make it more challenging, they raised the flags up so that no contestant would be able to grab them without jumping. Yeah. Jumping in a moving white-water raft.

Nearly every single contestant walked away from the task with an injury of some sort. Yiru got a gash on his face, Xiaopeng got tons of abrasions on his arms and legs as well as an excess of water in his ears. Weitong got trapped underwater briefly, and she was very upset once she reached shore. She was loudly yelling at production and fellow contestants that she nearly lost her life just for a game, and I sympathize with her. You can see that many of the other teams were quite upset at what they had to go through.

Of course, let's not forget that this task took a team out of the race due to injury. Yueliang ("Izabella") slipped off of her raft and got dragged under it by the pull of the water. As she described on-air, the bone in her lower leg actually popped out and then back into its socket. She nearly dislocated her tibia, and her father was too concerned to let her continue.

This still stands out to me as one of the hardest things on TAR to watch. It's really dangerous and a bad idea, and I'm surprised no-one on the crew spoke up and said they should probably make things a little bit safer for the contestants. Does anyone agree?

1. Flor Vigna & Gonzalo Gerber (Split decision)
2. Mica Viciconte & Jorge Moliniers (Split decision)

And this is the audience decision, made by phone and SMS and the ELTRECE app:

Gladys “La bomba tucumana” Jiménez & Facundo Arrigoni - 17.78 % (ELIMINATED)
María Sol Pérez & Fernando Bertona - 42,86 %

The sentence round ended with these scores after Angel De Brito secret votes were revealed:

Hernán Piquín & Macarena Rinaldi - Score: 25 + 8 = 33
Lourdes Sánchez & Gabriel Usandivaras - Score: 24 + 8 = 32
Federico Bal & Laura Fernández - Score: 20 + 6 = 26

Melina Lezcano & Maxi Buitrago - Score: 19 + 6 = 25
Flor Vigna & Gonzalo Gerber - Score: 16 + 4 = 20
Mica Viciconte & Jorge Moliniers - Score: 15 + 5 = 20
Gladys “La bomba tucumana” Jiménez & Facundo Arrigoni - Score: 14 + 0 = 14
María Sol Pérez & Fernando Bertona - Score: 12 + 2 = 14



To avoid the "duel" and a possible elimination was needed to have more than 26 points.
