" don't hate the players hate the game"

Eric: if any team has to win besides us I'd rather see Danny & Oswald

I think the D/O confessional was taken out of context, because in D/O mat chat they say they think E/D follow to much...That picture of E/D scares me ... it's like Danielle wants to kick my ass for liking the yield queens.

woops..what I meant is, they are probably going to go for some story that all teams want the F3 to be O/D, E/D, C/M and D/K being the "hated team".

Puddin - I just saw that BB applications are due this Friday! You should go on that show, you love it so much.

That's what I have done last night!  :happy:
I went to Haipong Road, Tsim Sha Tsui and confirmed that this is the place where the Chas passed by.

And the image is flipped as discussed, therefore, the Chas were walking towards the Harbour City or the ferry pier, i.e. the place they got their detour clue in TAR2. I am not sure why they were there though, because if they were not going to catch a ferry, they probably just came out of the MTR station at that point.

Nice, serendipity!    :thankyou:  There must have been a clue box along there somewhere... pretty pictures!

Sigh....Hong Kong shopping...wish I was there! Wonder if D/O will go looking for some cologne again? :lol:

From the CBS blogs:

James (from James & Tyler, winners of TAR10) opinion:

Quote
"Pirate Hookers??? Eric couldn't be more wrong! Well... for the most part ;) jk I'm loving our Beauties taking first place on this leg, but i was a bit suprised to see them use the yield again. I know it is part of their strategy, but i would think after yielding Bama in our season only to end up last in that leg, that they would have been a little discouraged. My opinion of the yield is, it only fires up the competition and create more enemies, and rarely actually is the main reason a team is eliminated. But, all in all, they are staying true to their way of running the race and I think it's safe to say they are the STRONGEST all Female team on TAR ever!!! I HATE Mirna & Shmirna! could you imagine if they had been on our season? i think we would have all worked together to get them off on the first leg. THEY are the most selfish, ignorant team ever and I'm really hoping that i get to see Kandice b*&%h slap Charla in the episodes to come."

I'm hoping he meant for Kandice to bitch slap Mirna, because slapping Charla would be so mean LOL

You're welcome! You guys are nice~

Just like Neobie, I am still upset that I did not know they came to HK at that time, I missed the golden chance to see the teams!!!  :groan:

If I actually saw D/K or C/M on the race, I would definitely helped them as much as I can!

For the elevator, I think it is very difficult to know the exact location, maybe it is just the elevator in KL airport? If it is actually the elevator of HSBC, I may go there to have a look tonight since it is just outside my office!!  ;D

I wonder if Eric had any advantage in the HK leg? I remembered he and Jeremy won a trip to HK in TAR9.

Serendipity, how I'd love to join you hauling ass around Hong Kong! (Stuck somewhere else in the world at the moment, and not liking that too much...)

HSBC should be interesting... Ties into the banking sector of Hong Kong, and just across the road from Statue Square. Hmm...
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Would it be possible that the elevator is from HK airport? It is my first thought.

Personally I think the scene of Statue Square and Lion dance would have the same "fate" as Putrajaya Mosque or Petronas Towers in the Malaysian leg, i.e., randomly shown during the episode or during phil's introduction in the beginning of next episode. (Because I saw similar lion dance scene when I rewatch ep8 from Season 2.) I think those places are unlikely to be route marker.

:(But I can't explain why Chas appear in Tsim Sha Tsui

I am not sure if it is Hong Kong airport, as I can see there is something look like a directory board behind (see the red circle)
But I am quite sure the C/M which Charla was tripping down is when they just exited from the arrival hall

Hi, I am back (Now is lunch break)

I got it!!!!!

The  Elevator  is from "Time Square" (Causeway Bay)
Credit: elex from miniforum (Hong Kong)
http://www.miniforum.org/showpost.fcgi?MGID=2128119&page=1&tempid=2


Definitly not airport (because of the route sign and lighting - Airport is brighter)
Definitly not HSBC. HSBC Elevator is only internal use.

100% make sense in Time Square lowest floor.



P.S. again. I am from Hong Kong

Don't worry. I am working in Causeway Bay.
Give me a day to take photos.
