Welp that was a terrible episode. Only good thing was Twinnie U-Turn strategy switchback.

Both Detours being delivery?  :groan:

Linear Roadblock?  :groan:

If only Dana & Matt didn't mess up the ARI they would have been stuck in the same positions the whole way lol.

another solid leg <333

the task all are decent and the w-turn drama ( Burnie and Ashley indirectly using Twinnies U-Turn Strategy is  :funny: <33 ) is great, although i dislike how team bitching, worries for getting W-turned  :groan:

the -snorkeling to find the next clue- is great, and make some teams distracted enough to get the next clue (Matt/Dana are the victims )

Monkey dance is entertaining <3

i really like the detour which one is physical challenges task and other side  is technically simple but  time wasting detour and decision to place detour before RB is a smart choice ( although it's proved that whether  the detour point is placed before/after Rb, it's really hard to catch up when you get u-turned)

RB is fascinating with blue clear lagoon and picturesque location... and an appreciation to Cole for conquering his worst fear  :hoot:

and the editing is slightly better than previous leg, with some tenses editing especially on last 10 minutes to the pit stop...

Burnie and Ashley is (again) robbed :(  and Brodie and Kurt :( great fight for them and i wish they return for AS

overall, i enjoy this leg (not too enjoyed b'cause my internet really slow :res: ), and i'm expecting magnificent penultimate leg next week :)

What I appreciated most  (and this coming from someone who HATES Uturns) was that these players understood the UTurn and how it works.

If anyone had any doubts that these players might not "know" TAR...this leg proved them wrong!! Good strategy all around, but oh so sad for Brodie and Kurt.  :'(

No, if the Roadblock was not that linear. They only waited for Cole to be Mika 2.0.  :groan:

Maybe not. or maybe she did, they have played a good game.

The others understood 100%. Burnie and Ashley could have chosen any remaining team, and didn't, ensuring who went home.

Maybe she was just confused with why Burnie & Ashley chose to u-turn a team already in front of them
That is not supposed to be the "normal" u-turn mechanism

:lol:

hmmm what i think, it'snt impossible to catch up when you got u-turned (see Logan/Chris on TAR 27, but because the leg was too linear), but indeed it is really hard and need extra work to speed up from losing times after doing both detour
and even the RB wasn't that linear, still... (but, i agree because the RB is a high linear task)

The Twinnie U-Turn strategy returns!

It was smart. Brodie & Kurt powerhoused the race (final average 2.60) up until Indonesia and had to go. Not a favourite team of mine, personally.

The U-TURN is never not strategic when it's meant to:

1. Eliminate a strong team who's finally for once behind you
2. Eliminate a weak team who's weaker than you to keep you alive

The only time when a U-TURN is used lamely is when you use it on a team you hate without strategy aka Joe and Heidi by Louie and Michael.

Sheri didn't understand the U-TURN strategy deployed by the first two teams, but it doesn't mean that she's not a race lover? I'm pretty sure that as long as a team understands how a U-TURN should be deployed, that's enough?

Agree to these. ^
TAR20's W-turn wasn't strategic too imo, but it was dramatic. :funny:

I feel that this season is set for Tyler and Korey to not lose now. Sheri and Cole looks like a typical 3rd/4th place team, Dana and Matt a 3rd place team and Burnie and Ashley a 2nd place team. I can only see Tyler and Korey winning lol.

And to be honest, Brodie blew his chances to win when he burned that EP on Leg 8 just to win a leg. Like seriously, had they used it on Leg 9, they wouldn't even be that far behind this leg and would have made the Final 4 this season.

Their demise is similar to Tanner and Josh's poor use of EP last season and resulted in their own elimination because they chose to take the momentarily pleasure of finishing a task that is seemingly easy.

Not only that, I think the Express Pass actually brings more good than bad unless it's handed to you. You win an Express Pass, people see you as a threat, people are wary, people U-TURN you, and you die. LOL

At long last, one of the most annoying teams go home. Technically the annoying one is only Brodie. Brodie, you keep on talking so much but your partner Kurt, who's a cancer survivor did more roadblocks, the physically challenging ones and slayed the race more than you did. 2 thumbs up for Kurt for being an inspiration for cancer-survivors out there.

Well Brodie was still a good racer, yeah I have teams I prefer but you can't say only Kurt did well!
