Considering the way the shoot this version, the "route" doesn't really matter does it?

Japan was an interesting leg 3, and with the racer swap for one of the teams, this was probably the start of the second block of the filming. Though this was one of those episodes that it didn't really need those 90 minutes, it could have benefited with a tighter editing and done it all in 60~70 minutes, even with the amount of tasks that it covered, including 3 Route Info Tasks, a RB and a Detour.

And I loved that RB.
And the detour design (considering how detailed they went on the making off segment), they probably came up with Sailor Moon option first, and then found a way by re-contextualizing a task done in another race to fit the anime / Akihabara theme for Detective Conan option.

BTW, I just realized that as I haven't watched the TAR:Asia seasons, I probably lack the reference for any tasks designed for that.

Greetings!



Here's today's Chinese characters. As always, your help is appreciated.

Additionally, was there a prize for this leg? It sounded like the girls won a trip to Norway.

The girls had won a trip to Norway, Denmark and Iceland which was related to the origins of the sponsor's milk (same as ep1 and 2 (a trip to Australia and New Zealand)).

Man, they're really taking notes from other versions. Tokyo, like Munich, saw a few rehashed tasks.

From US, the wasabi roulette (TAR15) and looking for people with signs while riding amusement park rides (TAR9)

Also the Analyze Detour from Canada season 3 Sudbury (graphing a crime scene)

Solid Leg.  I agree that a more tight edit would've made it an even more exciting Leg especially with all the placement changes.  I was surprised teams took the penalty at the wasabi.  I was happy to see it again, but it lacked the more wacky Japanese game show elements that made TAR15's task more fun.

The Road Block was definitely awesome.

Thinking about that crime scene Detour, I still prefer TARPH2's crime scene/MURDER!!! Detour.  It was more random and fun. hehe
But I like how they were able to recycle the TAR Canada task and connect it with Detective Conan for a full-on anime/Akihabara Detour.

The following tasks will be recycled

And from the spoiler,
The Russian Timezone roadblock from tar 21 leg 8 will return as well

So majy tasks for next episode  :ascared

Hopefully they got "THE PENCILS DOWN!" guy or somebody similar! He was what made that task.

Hi! I might be late with this week's episode. If someone could help me out and get the Detour names and Roadblock prompts transliterated here ahead of time, I would really, really appreciate it! Thanks!

If a team needs to be saved 2 legs in a row, maybe it's best to get rid of them  :groan:

Can't see this team going much farther.

What a great leg. Most tasks as mentioned are repurposed with some alteration, but they work. Loved having teams at the same challenges, placement shifting around and more than one team attempting the FF.

>>Tar 5 Leg 4  Drink one shot detour
Was 1st Route Info

>>Tar 13 Leg 9 Flour transport roadblock
Adapted into a harder Route Info, instead of fifty 25kg bags of flour, they were asked to carry twenty 50kg bags of flour. Fewer bags, but the load way heavier. FF team struggle a lot in this.
It's interesting that the making off segment tell us later on, that because girls were struggling during test run, so they reduced the bag count from 30 to 20.

>>Tar 17 Leg 7 The Circus detour
It only looked like the Circus Clown detour, but it wasn't. The plate thing was only a component of a two part Fast Forward. The plate (singular) is part one, being similar only in the sense that they must not let that drop, with the part 2 being an aerial routine.

>>Tar 21 Leg 7 Syncing steps detour
>>Tar 21 Leg 8 Russian Break-dance detour
Yup, even the same songs were used, and I think were both the same routine.

>>The Russian Timezone roadblock from tar 21 leg 8 will return as well
I think it was the same "Pencils Down" guy back there, but sadly he doesn't say "Pencils Down", he starts and finish every round in Russian. But I get the impression, it was slightly simplified, compared to the original US version. Some racers did struggle at it, but not as much US racers.

I like the way how the EP was used in this leg. It didn't get them the win (that be hard with a FF in the leg), but I think that it was a sound strategic move.

There's a UTurn in Barcelona.

The few tasks spotlighted in the preview, looked familiar, but can't recall if they were done in another version.
- There's a learning flamenco task, which looks like a Route Info
- There's a carrying a bed though the streets which is probably one side of the detour.
- And a shooting challenge which is probably the RB, that I'm sure I've seen done before, just can't recall when.

Jin Xing & Hans.

Last week they were brought back into the game by the Return Ticket. This week they were saved again by a Non-Elimination.

According to the preview, the UTurn may be different this time.
The girls team had said they can 'vote' in the UTurn.

Okay, the Detours are 水出芙蓉 and 軍中緣花 but Google Translate is giving me gibberish. Can anyone give me a bit more of a concrete translation?

And was there a prize?

yes they had won a trip to France, Germany and Switzerland (the place of origin of the sponsor's milk)

出水芙蓉= Lotus flower breaking the surface?
(A Chinese idiom which is used to describe a pure, pretty woman)
水=water  芙蓉=Lotus/Blossom, in Chinese, the lotus also symbolizes purity, long life, humility, honor and tranquility

軍中綠花= Green flower of the army?
(A folk song in PRC army which also symbolizes female soldiers)
軍=Army 綠=Green 花=Flower

me too
I am glad to see Shenzhen TV has made such a great improvement in this season (compare to S2).
In fact the Canadian version (S2?) had come to my hometown and I had just passed through their U-Turn sign. :)

It didn't really matter in the end, but what were the models and idols doing wrong at the bakery? Their stacks just not neat enough?
And the penalties? I assume the actors took a private car? And the idols crossed the street on a red light? hehe

As far as I remember the clue just said stack them to the Baker's approval, which we assume that they had to be properly stacked, in neat rows of bags, not just thrown randomly.

Completely forgot that I loved how they had to go through the Moscow metro to move between the 1st few tasks. That's gorgeous.

Penalties:
30 minutes for taking a private car, instead of a proper Taxi.
30 minutes for crossing on a red light. Just cause other people were doing it, racers are not allowed to do that.
