I'm getting them all as fast as I can!! :funny:

Yes, We knew G/M ages ago, and I gave you Snapple earlier. :angel

But the PitStop one is clearly a webmonkey mistake. :groan:

In this shot, five statues have already been painted.

I spoke to someone on-site during the Kolkata leg, and that person shared two pieces of info with us. The first was posted previously, and that was that Gary-Mallory won this leg. The second is that the eliminated team was the deaf son and his mother, i.e Margie and Luke.


It's really confirmation Margie and Luke really eliminated?

Thats a detour? so maybe some teams went for the mini bus one.
but FT/BE probaly at the back of the pack. I think 4 has been painted,the middle one is an example

or  does the Roadblock comes after,thats why luke were crying?

If that's correct (about Margie and Luke) then that means the first four eliminated teams all came from the same season, with only Kisha and Jen left. So much for stacking the deck with all those teams.

The RB is first. The painting is one side of the detour, I don't think that the school bus is one side because we see seven teams doing the painting. Jet and Cord and Gary and Mallory are both seen doing the school bus. It looks like only one team does the alternate detour.

Ok I think I get it.
They travel at night to get to the roadblock.
Than they need to wait till morning for HOfO
Luke got stuck in RB. and they never caught back up and were eliminated. :'(

Well my spoilers said they never got in top 3 anyways :kuss:

Wherever it is there is a "familiar bottle" there, probably the Snapple bottle. Phil also says: "You may have noticed all the tea references in this leg." Another tea task? Maybe Gallory did the other detour which involved tea as well. Could just be the RB though.

Well I didnt find a "tea exchange," but I did find the location of the Tea Board and most of the offices of the different tea companies.

They are on Old China Bazaar Street.......who would have thought that.......lol
