And there's our final 4. What a ruthlessly physical leg!

Trivia note: the clip of the twins AFTER the Christmas Island speed bump was taken out of order.  There is a Sydney/ Glace Bay sign in the background, which would be near the Coast Guard College.

Explain that a bit more for those of us who don't know the geography?

The sign would be the turn off near the Coast Guard College, near Sydney.  The Christmas Island post office is good half hour away on the way to Iona, where the Highland Village is.  To get to Louisbourg, you would go by that same spot go around Sydney and turn south. 


Where in the leg does the speedbump come? Is it on the way to Iona?

WHat I would really love is a Neobie style map of this episode..

I can do one up after I see the ep. I have to watch the later airing...I'm in Vancouver right now.  :gaah:

Though they are still in the race, Frankie & Amy make Race history!

No mother/daughter has ever made F4. Best was Nancy & Emily/Debbie & Dana 5th

The Coast Guard College is right where the 'n' is in North Sydney

Christmas Island is just east of Iona.

Highland Village is just SW of Iona.

Louisbourg is on the east coast.  The fortress is on one side of their small harbour and the lighthouse is on the other side.

Have to agree with Gamer. That's both U-Turn boards used by the same 2 strong teams. It's way too powerful.

I feel like Emmet and Jillian made a bad Uturn... if they didn't want Joel& Ashley to Uturn a weaker team, then they should have Uturned Steph/Kirs, who were already ahead of them. They just gaave J&A a chance to survive and killed Rita and Yvette in the process... I think the twins would have survive had they not been uturn

I think they just wanted to save Frankie/Amy? Slowing down two teams are better for Frankie/Amy than one.

I agree that allowing the two dominant teams to use the Double U Turn both times is bad. Probably best to limit them to one time each, though then the second Double U Turn would probably be needed before the final 5.

I'm not sure why Steph & Kris U Turned Joel & Ashley, unless it was because they decided that U Turning Jillian & Emmett wouldn't knock them out. Perhaps they also thought it best to try and knock out one of the more capable teams behind them and they felt some resentment for the deals they had to make with Joel & Ashley earlier in the race. Jillian & Emmett's U Turn, as they explained it, made sense to me. If you really think Frankie & Amy are the weakest remaining team, then it makes sense to try and pave their way into the finals if you can. In the end, it was clear that having to do the speedbump knocked Rita & Yvette out of the race.

That was a good episode and I enjoyed watching it live. If I can, I'll do it again next week.

The leg was ok.

If Steph and Kristen were smart, they should have UTurn'd Jill and Emmett. May not have eliminated them but pushing them back would have been a good game move. Plus they could have won the leg.
Jill and Emmett, had they been UTurned, I think would U-Turn Jashley or Rita/Yvette. Ultimately, the twins had a possibility of being saved.

Agreed. I love all these teams, and the episode was great, but the U-Turn rule really just put a very sour taste in my mouth. As much as I love Jillian and the lesbots, seeing them always in 1st or 2nd is slightly wearing down on my patience.

The U-Turn rule is a NECESSITY. Why even put it there if the same people just use it again without the consequence of not being able to use it in the future?

Steph tweeted that they made a deal with Jemmett at the coast guard college (water rescue task) that they would not U-turn each other.

Thank you zuzuspetals and Sue for the MAPS!!

Totally agree on the UTURN ..the strategy of WHEN and HOW to use it is totally negated if you can do it more than once.

Who else here wants to see Amy & Frankie pulling a big upset and winning the race?

This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Well, to start off, I agree that this is one of the most scenic leg. :luvya:

One of the most horrible designed leg ever seen in show.  (:;) (:;) (:;)
The leg is entirely physical and favors the strong teams (by allowing the teams to re-use their u-turn power, too OP).
Also, my favorite Rita & Yvette is gone... :( :( :(

If Amy is gone next leg, I'll be done for this season.  :escape

And I wish this is an underdog season.  :stirtp:

Why upset?
an upset is when the underdog wins unexpectedly (like the Beekmans)
