I think it's because the episodes can be separated, and it's just aired as a double episode next week. I won't trust AXN's schedule anymore. The Norway leg did not reflect from the website's schedule to the actual schedule.
.

Well I will follow the US guidelines since the preview hadn't said about double episodes...

what might have been

Ok so when was the last time the leg start with teams perform a task before travel to another country? Also it just insane they going from Athens to Corinth Canal (approximate 50 miles or 80km) perform the bungee jumping and then back to Athens again taking flights to Hanoi.

TAR27 Zimbabwe-France (which was also a bungee jump of sorts)
I remember that incident when team open the first clue and find it is a roadblock  :funny:

So...
  • Either the race went through South Korea without getting noticed, which leaves me impressed
  • Or we don't know enough about searching Korean media and social sites, which leaves me disappointed.

Yeah, like the only thing on that leg is there's possibly some sort of K-Pop task. We'll see that leg for basically the first time in the preview at the end of tonight.

We def had info on a South Korea booking, but that is all we had except for the one spoiler find thanks to fossil starting here:

In the NEP, can anyone take a guess on what character each racer is playing as in the SFV task?  I think Scott is playing as Chun Li.

Street Fighter isn't a Korean game, is a Japanese game. StarCraft and League of Legends are popular video games in South Korea as youngsters enjoy playing the game after class hours.

Please correct me if I'm wrong on speculate Brooke & Scott placement for next few legs based on the Wrigley Field board pic.


Leg 8: Athens - 3rd

Leg 9: Hanoi - 4th
Leg 10: Ninh Binh - 2nd
Leg 11: Seoul - 1st

Can't believe they generally perform well on Asia legs and even won the South Korea leg judging their current performance and edit.

So... Brooke and Scott will get 1st Place in South Korea?  :conf:

Street Fighter isn't a Korean game, is a Japanese game. StarCraft and League of Legends are popular video games in South Korea as youngsters enjoy playing the game after class hours.

It's not just about the youngsters playing, but like StarCraft, LOL, DOTA, there is also competitive tournaments for Street Fighter and other fighting games (surprised they didn't go  with Smash Brothers more acessible, unless there's Capcom or Sony PS4 sponsorship for the leg). The weird thing is that there are not that many South Koreans among the top players:

I'll try reviewing the preview later on to try figuring out who's playing which character. A bit busy with work right now.

Probably since I'm guessing their last 3 leg placements correctly. lol

Both the video game and cup stacking tasks look like roadblocks

We got the studio sighting. Does that count?

Sure--but like Peach said, we could use some Korean searchers.

Apparently, one of the Korean players at the SFV Roadblock is PoongKo.
