  “Welcome to the Jungle” – Teams race through the Malaysian jungle
where the roaring rapids crush their spirits and their homemade rafts. Plus,
after being struck by taxi déjà vu, one team fights to
stay in the running,
on the All-Star edition of THE AMAZING
RACE, Sunday, March 9 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Who? What?  ???

I'm guessing this is aimed at Dave & Connor, based on this -

http://tv.yahoo.com/blogs/tv-news/-amazing-race--sneak-peek--sink-or-swim-time-for-connor-and-dave-in-borneo-210038671.html?soc_src=mediacontentsharebuttons

They never had taxi troubles. Me thinks it's Globes.
"But I got smarter, I got harder in the nick of time
Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time
I've got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined
I check it once, then I check it twice (oh)"

You may be right. I was going to suggest they finished last then learned it was a NEL. However, they are not dejected enough in the one pic and not elated enough in the second. Unless they are just too tired to react strongly.

I think Meghan's reaction is more like a shocked :wtf: look towards Joey.
I think even if they were tired, there'd be some sort of elation and excitement from them if it's NEL.   I wonder what happened that could have caused them to receive a penalty?  ???

Just saw oval updated the image in the first posts of the thread a while ago, hahaha.

BTW, it seems like quite a big proportion of the place is wet (look at the borders of the wooden platform), it may be raining, probably? That can be why everything is wet, included the mat?

The supports are different... but could be nearby? That is a fairly new looking covered area, next to maybe a store or something?/

After researching for the Pit Stop on Google Maps, only Pulau Gaya holds stilt housing in the South China Sea. If you zoom in on what appears to be the south-easternmost point of the island, there are a cluster of roofs near the shoreline.

In georgiapeach's front view of Joey & Meghan, the background contains a notable bridge structure, stilt houses, and what appears to be palm trees behind the housing on the photo right side of Meghan. The palm trees are important because it provides information of how near the Pit Stop is to the sand. In David's "mugshot-style" view, note the EVEN CLOSER view of trees in the background and a pathway between residencies like an apartment complex. Both perspectives contain open paths for small boats to travel through.

I'd say the Pit Stop is vaguely located in the northwestern part of the village as I can only see roofs of the village in Maps. Plus, bridges are scattered among.
