New promo up here.

Cap 39 is Ashley & Jarrod in Argentina. The house on the right is similar to the ones on the suburban areas of Buenos Aires and the car's tapestry is usually seen in cabs here.

Interesting to note that this cap pops up again, looks to me like Argentina is the second half of next weeks double ep...

New promo up here.


CAPS: Note that car shots all show different clothing from Dubrovnik. Also Dubr is a nighttime Pitstop, which does not match the first promo's Mat...so that one must be Argentina and since everyone looks relieved...could it be NEL?? And boys are not seen after barbershop in THIS promo...

Peach, caps 16 & 17 are also from Buenos Aires. The legend of color yellow in the background is MAXI, the first four letters of MAXIKIOSCO, a typical argentinian store that is frequently open 24/7.

Thanks Alen! Yes, that was what I was trying to say, the car shots were in Arg. And yes, that looks like the boys, I just meant we did not see a car shot of them (presumably to avoid the haircut shots), not that they were never seen again, lol.

Need to be on the lookout for a speedbump this leg. These are the only two shots we have of Ash/Jarrod in Croatia during the day.. notice the guy in the first cap tying a bow tie. Maybe watch a demo and then Jarrod attempting it on Ash?

Also notice there's one task with an ascender and then the other involved rappelling at Fort Bokar. Two part roadblock/route info maybe? But then where is the detour? I don't see any other task than carrying around those rocks at night ???

Could at be ascender or descender Detour? ??? That would be weird though.

And the only reason I can think of carrying a rock would be some sort of wall repair task....

What is the haircut task??

Could it be the RB and the reason the shown teams all arrive so late at the Mat (dark) is they took penalties? ???

Hair cut should be the FF, I don't see anything else this leg leaving a lasting impression.

We don't seem to see any team member doing both ascender and descender so perhaps a task where one goes up and one comes down?

So....this a KOR leg? And the Pitstop in Argentina could be NEL?  Or what??

What caps show that they arrive at night? I think that teams arrive in Dubrovnik at night (stone carrying) and the leg continued into the day (either like the Lisbon Leg from this season or similar to the penultimate leg in Prague from TAR15).
