The bug eating is at Science North, you can see the logo on the bottom of the tray

And the ones at the end are, of course, the nickel mine  :yess:

Basically, 2 of the most predictable places in this city for them to go :)

Notice the title is in the form of a question. For a reason. Alex Trebek will make a cameo. He was born in Sudbury.  http://www.thesudburystar.com/2015/08/07/sudbury-hoping-for-hype-from-amazing-race-episode Most of that article is useless, and has a few errors, but go to the last line. LOL

Okay, let's have some fun here speculating. I hope this plays out: teams travel all the way to Sudbury, all tired because of the KoR, go down deep into the mine, only to find Alex Trebek there with the next clue.

It could be just a confessional that goes like:

Partner 1 points out that Sudbury is the birthplace of Alex Trebek
Partner 2 "Who is Alex Trebek?"

Last line of that article...."You won't want to miss all the surprises, including a Canadian icon who makes a special trip back to his hometown." LOL

You're probably right, I am just having some fun.
But just to clarify, the KoR clue told them to go directly to the mines, and it's not part of the Detour. Nor is the ER/CPR task.

The Detour is the synchonized swimming, or a crime scene simulation that you see in the new preview on the website. The picture I found on Twitter shows a sign with the Detour options, "Analyze" or "Synchronize", and when I asked the poster for more information she said one was at the pool, and the other looked like a game of "Clue".

Also in that clip, by the way, Kristin apparently recovered during the flight because she's no longer on crutches. And Brian & Cynthia say in a confessional that they didn't tell anyone they're police officers. At the latter task, Brian says to Kristin "We don't know anything about policing. I hope we don't mess this up! (wink to the camera)"

Those extras on the site are terrific by the way. And the cut scenes from Leg 5 are hilarious.

Or the "Who is" part could be a reference to Jeopardy

Could the bug eating be a Fast Forward? I could see it as one.

The tip-off being Jesse saying "seriously?" like they didn't know what it was going to be.

I made a map of the known places :)

We know the mines were first. No idea where the hospital task was, but it was presumably a Roadblock, since only Nic was shown doing it.

The CPR is for resuscitating the bug eaters.

http://www.northernlife.ca/news/lifestyle/2015/05/07-alex-trebek-in-sudbury.aspx

Guess who WAS in Sudbury during filming?

"I will be in Sudbury in the next few weeks,” the longtime host of the popular quiz show Jeopardy! told reporters in Ottawa. “I get to have my picture taken in front of the Big Nickel.”

While Trebek will get his picture taken in front of Sudbury's most famous landmark, Science North spokesperson Christine Catt said that as it stands, the science centre, which hosts the Big Nickel at its Dynamic Earth site, has no official plans with Trebek for his visit to Sudbury."

...No official plans my  :funny:

Yep, they just released a teaser video with Jon and Alex standing on a hill above a lake. Could be at Science North?
