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.

Well, there's one correct speculation.

Well we will get a 2 possible switchback in 2 hours special... ( but they didn't say that there will be a 2 hours special episode on the preview ??? )

- leg 9 : Bungee jumping in Corinth Canal ( season 9 )
- leg 10 : Bring a basket in Vietnam ( Tar 3 )


But still confuse if they will air 2 hours episodes, as on the preview they didn't stated that...

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.
Lowkey lurking until TAR returns.

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.

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

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.

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.

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:

http://capcomprotour.com/standings/?circuit=2016&list_view=&lang=en-us

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

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