Charla/Mirna look like they're running down the ramp to the bus terminal, could they have found something that connects faster by bus? (The Airport Express may be too expensive for some teams: Oswald/Danny if they don't give out too much cash this leg.)

Well, whatever they found we know the BQs must do the same because we see them both in the Taxis (lose the losers!)

That's a good idea neobie. They have been pretty generous with the money this season --since we saw Rob say they couldn't ask for $$ I guess.  But D/O are going to be less well off than the others since Danny took the easy way out at the paper task.

Hmmm....

We aren't sure when those taxis are Michael...

Based on D/K hair I think I was able to decide...YES I TOOK MATTERS INTO MY OWN HANDS AND DECIDED FOR SURE! ... (just kidding) that it is from Hong Kong, because both D/K have the same hair that they are seen with when they are coming down/going up the bamboo wall, and when Kandice is kicking the door in.

No I knew you had figured out the HK part (and isn't it nice to have a guy who actually notices your hair and what you are wearing around?  :kuss:)

but we don't know when/where in HK they are, if I recall correctly?

oh yeah - that's true...the teams can easily catch up with each other a long the way in HK.

If anyone wanted to do a bit of sun angle analysis, Charla/Mirna are running southeast in the picture. (Assuming, of course, that the orb at the end of the corridor is the sun.)

Regarding the time and cost, it really depends on the where is the first location after arrival.
If their first stop is anywhere in Hong Kong Island, Airport Express (+ MTR) is a better (faster and cheaper) choice.
Otherwise, they should go for taxi, before changing between Airport Express + MTR line may get them lose time (maybe even lost).

However, do they know the advantages with the Airport Express/MTR??

Cha3 and Eric/Danelle should know this. (HK leg in TAR2/HK Trip as TAR9 Price)
Charla/Mirna and BQ, maybe not.

Okay--help please.

I'm missing some things.

Quote
Kick the door down!
             Charla (damn she actually kicked the door in!)
Where do we see Charla kicking down a door? I just looked at both previews and must be missing it somewhere.

Quote
If the road block is the Kung Fu door kick thing where does the restaurant fit in?

What restaurant?? I really am going nuts. :crazy:

And where is this? KL airport? I haven't seen this shot with the curved roof there --I don't think.





The elevated area in the upper right of the picture reminds me of a monorail.  Does the HK airport have a monorail?

Both the BQ (Dustin or Kandice) and Charla are attaching the blue door in a short promo seen during CSI Thursday night (at the 48 minute mark).

What terrible food challenge?  We already had  eat the sausage or die bit this time.  Never knew that TAR would have Two terrible food challenges in one series.

Anyone want to guess on this weeks scenario?

I'd say it's just a higher level in the terminal building?

I'm still curious about the Eric climbing the bamboo shot. The sky looks considerably different then what we see in all of the shots of C/M, D/O, and D/K. I hate when I get this confused about an episode!

I bet you it's all just the way that promo was put together and all the teams are there at around *somewhat* of the same time. I also wonder how the teams (probably E/D, C/M) are going to try and get D/K out of the race.

There's a lot to look forward to.

I'm feeling the BQs coming in first (well, to the TBC mat/clue box)!!

I've made some nicely labeled pictures for you guys!

I'm wondering if Charla's short legs are going to slow them down in the bamboo climb.

That's why it would be so nice to know which task is first Roadblock or Detour? But unfortunately, we won't be getting any sun shots in those kicking down the door shots since it is all inside.

STILL no promo??

At some point E/D are going to need to come out from the back of the pack--which makes me wonder if they use a FF in the next few episodes--or just run really well at the end?

If they win peach  :crazy

no but I agree. I have a feeling that what ever leg their confessional about them saying "we're still in it" is from they will come close to last, and after that maybe pick it up? Or they could be like the Linz family and only win the important leg. Or they might not win at all. Or they can win every leg from now until the end! So many possibilities...so little time left to speculate....4 weeks  :(

It goes "OK, we're not out of this yet...if anybody has to win besides us.." it airs 25 minutes into the episode..

You can tell by the tone that Eric was saying it in that it wasn't actually part of the situation...it's right when E/D see D/O after the yield is up, and they try to make it look like Eric is saying we aren't out of this yet because D/O are there...but I'm pretty sure it's from the confessional...you can tell by the tone!

(i had great difficulty putting that sentence together for some odd reason so if it's horrible blame it on my tiredness!)

So your basing your guess that Eric & Dee come in last because of some dubbed " we're not out of this yet"? Don't you know TPTB can insert dubbed voiceovers when and wherever they want? Just ask Wally Bransen..
Please stop trying to twist everything to make the BQ's come in first in every leg.

Yeah, I kind of figured people would begin getting annoyed with me sooner or later, it always happens.

this detour looks like it's going to be awesome...

It looks kind of like a hotel/hotel room to me..

Does anybody else think that the purple blob in this picture is Mirna:


If it is Mirna I wonder if Charla already came down and Mirna is far behind, or vice versa

Thought I would do a quick recap of what we do and don't know--please feel free to chime in here!

We know:

Probable flights: (from apskip)
Quote
FLIGHTS TO HONG KONG
Teams arrived at the Kuala Lumpur pitstop between about 2pm and 5pm on Dec. 10. I assume that they will be released 12 hours later and have the chioce of the earliest flights from KL to HK:

CI654 departs KUL 0750 arrives HKG 1155
MH72 departs KUL 0915 arrives HKG 1300
CX720 departs KUL 0935 arrives HKG 1330

There is also a CX flight at 1755 and a MH flight at 1845 if it happens to be a 24 hour extended pitstop. Each takes about 3 3/4 hours.


There is a screencap for the "Central" area in front of the Ritz.

There is a clip of the HK Cultural center near the Star Ferry (more info here .)
    spec: these could be locations for clue boxes, or general shots of locations, or even Mat locations.

D/O are seen walking here
     spec: Looking for a clue?

We know that the car stunt drive task (almost certainly Detour, slim possibility of FF) was filmed at the old Kai Tek airport runway. (info starts here ).

We now also know that the bamboo climbing challenge (Detour) takes place at the former Cheung Sha Wan Police Quarters. more info starts here

We know that Charla and Kandice are kicking down doors and carrying symbol-looking cutouts. (Roadblock)

School location (cluebox?) reported by sun7kid is still a little unclear as to exactly where that might be.


from annielhy:


Just make it straight:
Hong Kong consist of 3 parts: Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, New Territories.
All outer islands including Lantau are consider as  New Territories. (New Airport is in Lantau)



CAR is in Hong Kong old Kai Tak airport ("Kowloon City", Kowloon)
Bamboo is  Shau Kei Wan ("Shau Kei Wan", Hong Kong Island) Cheung Sha Wan, Kowloon

With the place we have mentions:
Hong Kong Island: Statue Square (Central), Shau Kei Wan, Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Pier (Sheung Wan)
Kowloon: Cultural Centre (Tsim Sha Tsui), Hong Kong China Ferry Terminal (Tsim Sha Tsui), old Kai Tak airport (Kowloon City)
New Territories: New Airport (Chek Lap Kok)
[/quote]
(Updated 4/15/07)
Location Summaries


Details in Tsim Sha Tsui


Details in Central





We don't know:

Who arrives first in HK? (Two teams make a critical flight?)

Order of the Detours vs Roadblock--which is first?  Chateau  --we need you please here and here when you have time  :kissy: to figure out 1) who is leading at the bamboo climbing detour and 2) which Detour might be first--car or bamboo (affects how the teams get from place to place)

Where the Roadblock is--and what exactly they are doing.

Who is leading, and the order of finish. (I know we all have our favorites, but IIRC, we have no proof of who is in what order, right?)

Where is the Pitstop--and is it a Pitstop? or a TBC vs NEL?
