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 :)

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.

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

I thought the "!" things popping up on screen were penalties for teams picking a Detour without getting the clue first, haha. Now I see what happened.

So I was right about the spear task. I just thought it was really weird that the second one was worth five points when they need to get six :/

Wait, did Xiao Yang really do today's Roadblock? I thought it was his partner...

It looked like they changed their minds even after revealing the clue which should be a violation of the rules but their quitting negates it anyway.

That's a scenario that's never happened on an Amazing Race before, so not even sure what kind of penalty it would carry.

Leg 3 Preview Episode! : (If I could somehow caption it I would)

http://tv.sohu.com/20150718/n417018119.shtml

Looks like it involves the same bathing task I've seen in TARUS 21. However, the detours this time are either possibly street performing or street selling and roadblock looks like ascending or descending an old tower under threat of falling into murky water.

Xiao Yang of the Chopstick Brothers and Han Geng of his team with Wu Xin did the Roadblock. I think the Detour is a pun of Arts and Crafts even though shoe shining isn't really a craft...

If considering this episode to be the first part of Leg 3 (Quoth Allan verbatim, "this Leg is not over yet") then maybe the Intruding Team can still technically debut next episode. The rest for the night sounds like an 8-hour Pit Stop.

Is this a double-length leg or a No-rest Pit Stop with two legs? (Though there technically is a rest). Do the girls get a Speed Bump?

To me, it looks like a No-Rest Leg, like TAR18 and on. Double-length legs have generally been retired.

This was a great Leg! I loved all the tasks. The Road Block was especially impossible lol
The no money/no begging was interesting too. So teams actually hitched rides in private vehicles?! 
Plus it appears they stayed in people's homes for the night, a la Airbnb? Interesting!

I still think TAR China is the most visually appealing current TAR. They have some amazing cinematography and the quality is very film like, just like TARAu was.

Yeah, teams had to pick from five available residential homes when they reached the KOR Pit Stop. The girls got the one left over, which was a convenience store XD

Yeah, just like China Rush before it, hitchhiking is legal in this season as long as another mode of transportation isn't specified. (GOTTA DRIVE THOSE INFINITIS!!!)

TAR China is probably so visually appealing because they don't cut out the production crews. Since they don't have to throw away like 30% of shots just because there's a crewmember or a cameraman in view means that they have a lot more amazing visuals to work with. TAR US needs to adopt this.

This week's Leg (technically speaking, the second half of Leg 3) takes place in the Cappadocia region of Turkey. Teams depart 3 minutes after one another according to last Leg's placings. Initially, they had to set up a hot air balloon and fly to the Detour region but this was aborted due to cloudy weather. The Judge decided to changed it to rolling up and storing the hot air balloon, which has its own difficulties.

The Detour is either  上马 or 下水. In 上马, teams have to shoot targets with arrows while riding on horseback. Each team member must shoot at least once; and three shots total completes the Detour. In 小水, teams have to designate a bath to fill up with sacks of salt until the water becomes buoyant enough to float (à la Dead Sea). Then they have to find from a mock newspaper an article related to them and read it aloud fully. Only Xiao Yang and Wang Taili did 下水; the rest did 上马.

After the Detour is a Double Battle task. Two teams oil up and fight each other out to rip off the other's belt. Standard Double Battle tasks apply. After the Double Battle, teams have to perform a belly dance routine in traditional Turkish dance clothes.

Finally, teams make it to the Derinkuyu (?) underground city and are tasked with three painting clues: reciting the names of men planning on a map, fill up a couple's cups with pressed grape juice and eat up all of the platters in front of a lady (then kissing her in the cheek). These people are frozen in time for centuries and completing each clue "unfreezes" them and earns them a treasure. Treasures can be accumulated out the city as teams only have 5 minutes to explore before they get chased out the city. After giving all three treasures they would receive the clue to the Pit Stop.

This leg's greeter is a man in traditional Ottoman clothing and a giant white beard.

Leg Positions:
1st Deng Zhiqi & Zhang Yunjing (Reward: 50,000 Yuan to donate to charity only but this is announced by the CEO of Infiniti)
2nd Han Geng & Wu Xin
3rd Yang Qianhua & Ding Zigao
4th Xiao Yang & Wang Taili

I first thought the leg was too physically demanding,which will be unfair to female teams.
I am shocked when the female teams become the winner of the leg

As pissed as the Chinese netizens for their accidental tactic of Yunjing bursting into tears making the Chopstick Brothers lose on purpose to console them, at least it's good they have more longevity and interesting moments unlike last season's.

Seems like there's no news of Team Running Man cancelling their intrusion unexpectedly even though they should have debuted at this or the last Leg. Better arrive in Europe jointly with the other Orange team!

Unless I'm not understanding something, they didn't want to sleep at one of the five residential addresses during the night before their flight to central Turkey. (IE, Bed & Breakfast) The girls got the convenience store floor, and everyone else got to sleep in someone's house, but Father/Daughter chose not to and got a penalty that eliminated them??

Seriously, what.

A pretty good Leg.  I like the modified bubble bull task from TAR24.  The soccer was more interesting than TAR Canada's Road Block lol And the tomatoes were great.
But the REAL bull side of the Detour! WOW! That was insane! You'll never see that on TARUS, that's for sure lol

Was the starting task officially a Double Battle/Versus?

The bull task was copied and slightly modified from HaMerotz LaMillion 3. In both cases, they used an adolescent bull. However, in this version the bull also had its horns cut down to stubs so they couldn't do damage, while I don't think this was done in the Israel race.

I like how in the blind soccer task, they actually forbid them to do "The Hop", as invented by Nick & Matt.

The girls had to flip the same hourglass that the chopstick bros. had to flip, so I would definitely say it was a Face Off.

Can someone do me a favour and go back to check episode 2? I really can't believe that the rules of this race would allow Xiao Yang to do ALL FIVE of the Roadblocks so far. Can someone make sure that he actually elected to do the one in Cairns?

ALSO, if anyone feels like a geography challenge, try to find the lilac field? I saw where their little Google Earth map went, but I think the editor made a mistake. The little icon flies over to Cabrières-d'Avignon, but when it zooms in it seems to be in a completely different place because I can't find that specific area anywhere around Cabrières-d'Avignon.

Does anyone know the Roadblock prompt? I don't think any of the teams read it.

Either they miscalculated the time for their Hong Kong meet-up or the implications of Leg 6's Task at the beginning.

I think the clues should be forcing Wang Taili to do all the Roadblocks on Leg 7 onwards.

That was terrible. I hated everything about that.

This season was going so well, but this is just awful. These intruder teams are completely ridiculous. The Yuans can win the race now and get the same grand prize, and they would only have to run half of the race. HOW is that fair in any way? I absolutely cannot stand it when shows do this. What makes them so goddamn special to get this kind of treatment?

And on top of that, the leg was lacking both a Detour and Roadblock, meaning that there was almost no CHOICES to be made. TAR is all about making choices, but teams didn't choose the Detour, they didn't choose the Roadblock performer, and they didn't even have to choose which way to go; the whole leg was within a small nature reserve.

AND to top it all off, we have the greatest race sin of all time. NO LUCK TASKS RIGHT BEFORE THE PIT STOP. How difficult is it to grasp that? I am absolutely not impressed by this.

---

Is the notion of "Come in first or second, or be eliminated" still true for this intruder team, or did something change?

What is the name of the "Sponsor Water"?

*Cartoon slap* You should be checking our wiki instead. Most of the international versions on Wikipedia were written by me, and I've stopped making them because of the idiots over there. There is a much more full description of the leg over on our wiki.  :conf:

I think 16 seasons of BBUK have made me not care about intruders winning, and I mean they ain't winning now so. I frankly have more of an issue with the tasks in the last two legs than the leg structure itself (<3 ostrich racing <3 aside).

Well, it's over. Yay? Great visuals, mostly great tasks, STUPID design...  Would this not have been like five times better if Team Orange and Team Running Man had started from leg 1 like everyone else?

I think this is the Roadblock prompt? Confirm? If so, please write it out?


Also, folks I'm still looking for someone to tell me what the prizes at the end of each leg are (including the final leg). I have no idea, and the Chinese Wikipedia only has the first two legs.

Thanks, I appreciate it.
