I enjoyed this premiere much more than TAR Canada's premiere! lol

The Detour was the best though! Sleeping Sheeps or Watermelon Slide must be used on other TARs whenever they go to Sydney lol

*****Summary of EP1, TAR China S2*****
Spot

Starting line: Sydney, Australia
Detour: Centennial Park, Sydney
Roadblock: Farm cove, Sydney
Route Info: North Square of the Sydney Opera House
Pitstop: Hyde Park, Sydney

Mission

Starting line: Teams head to the sailing boats to search for the clue.

Detour: Slippery or soft
        Slippery: One team member wears the helmet, the slipping suit and the watermelon track shoes. The other team member collaborates with a coach to lug the rope. Once the trio successfully "surf" 40 meters, the team would be given the next clue.
        Soft: Team members have to catch 3 sheep and cover their eyes with cowboy hats. Once three sheep stay calm for 3 seconds, the team will be given the next clue.

Roadblock: One team member wears the professional suit and dives into the cage in the sea. He has to unravel five ropes in the cage to let the key drop to the bottom of the cage. Then he can use the key to unlock the door to escape from the cage. Once he succeeds, the team will be given the next clue. (I feel that this challenge may be seen in Survivor tho'.)

Route Info: Team members have to find 7 tourists to perform a square dance. Once the coach is satisfied, the team will get the next clue.

For ranks and other information please refer to the Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amazing_Race_2_(China)

The Starting Line task was great. Pulling the rafts to shore was good, but I loved that each team had to do something different to get the clue on the ship.  It could be as easy as just picking it up or as hard has needing to climb up to get it.

The Road Block was good too.

I see on the wiki something about an Intruders twist.  Is that why there are only 6 teams as new teams will join mid-Race?

Yes. An intruder team joins mid-race. The team can only survive in the race by being the first or the second arriving at the pitstop.

I disagree. I do not like this twist at all. TAR China needs to stop bringing in teams/bringing back teams. It's not fair. Twists in a race are fine, but just stick with the standard 11 teams 8 eliminations format because it works just fine.

PS: Help with hometowns and ages?

My avatar likes your username.

Oh and by the way, does there exist an official (or at least good quality) cast photo? It would probably just have the initial six teams in it, due to the nature of the intruders. The one I found for the wiki kinda sucks, but it's hard to navigate Chinese webpages, hee... So if someone finds one, let me know plz :)

In the new opening credits (which is pretty awesome), I think they spoil some locations this season :D

Thanks for spoiling that, ZBC.

I loved the blooper where the Pit Stop mat blew away. XD

Well, both the English and Chinese Wikipedias are not really on top of this season, so I'll need help from someone else. Tis appreciated :)

-Can someone turn this image into text? It's the Detour names and the Roadblock prompt.

-What were the rules of the spear-throwing Detour? There were points and hourglasses? lol, I was a little confused.
-Was the Detour 'blind'? It looked like teams had to pick one of them before they picked up a Detour clue.

Thanks! I'll update our much better Wiki page when I get back tonight.

Sorry, I meant for someone to actually type out the Chinese characters themselves. I have no way of doing that on my own.

Man, the Leg had a couple of neck-to-neck moments.

-Can someone turn this image into text? It's the Detour names and the Roadblock prompt.


Raw text would be: Roadblock is 谁想登高望远? and Detour is either 烤鱼 or 长矛.

-What were the rules of the spear-throwing Detour? There were points and hourglasses? lol, I was a little confused.

Well, racers had to throw spears from a distance at one of three targets to obtain points. Each target is further apart than the other, so the nearest target gives them 1 point, the second further 3 points and the furthest 5 points. Get 6 points and they can receive a clue. They have 10 spears to work with; if they run out of spears then that's where the hourglass is for: 3 minute penalty before another round.

-Was the Detour 'blind'? It looked like teams had to pick one of them before they picked up a Detour clue.

Sorta but not really like the one in the American version. On a fork in the road with no clues, men holding spears with raw fish lead to the Grilling Fish detour and racers have to take one for the task. The other task is led by just men holding empty spears.

I think the detour is blind
One of the teams mentioned that "there are no words for their reference" when deciding which side of the detour they are going to do
You can also see that there are detour clues hung up on the spear side of the detour
