This roadblock seems familiar... But where have I seen a task like this? ???
Season 1, Beijing, China or Season 22 pho Detour in Hanoi, Vietnam? ???

Ok, now I remember, thanks :tup:
You are the last team to arrive.
This is a Philmination leg, so I'm sorry to tell you that you have been Philiminated from the race.

And Michael & Liz are officially top dogs, team number one!

As winners, they win a 12-ft catamaran and question what it is trip to Amsterdam, the Netherlands!

I love the roadblock! Not only do they have to barter for food, they must stay on budget otherwise they won't have enough cash on hand to go to the PS.

Production helped them out by giving them $300+ to start this leg too. I think in general this race is less cash-starved (self-driving leg 1, the helicopters last leg and the RB/Pit Stop last leg being close together) perhaps for this very reason  :bunny

Helicopter rides are expensive though. I would say there is usually a giant task that requires an even bigger stretch on the wallet.

Sara begs for forgiveness and money back. Unfortunately, she succeeds as there is no "no refund" policy. :lol: And coming in 3rd is Vanck & Ashton and followed by Matt & Redmond with cocky Matt addressing his time elapsed. Words are exchanged between The Boys and Ashton.

Fun Meter in 5th!

Seth & Olive run into some trouble using Brazilian dollars.

Becca & Floyd are missing their passports!!! :groan: They call their taxi driver and check into the hotel receptionist for their passport. They quickly find it with quick help from the guy, I think. Meanwhile, Shamir & Sara arrive in 7th instead.

Becca & Floyd are 8th and says the fun meter is not off the charts anymore.

Seth & Olive arrive last and are eliminated. :torche "I never regretted picking her as a partner."

Ashton bickers with Vance while Brooke is angry at Scott for nominating her to do the manually straining Roadblock.

Team Fun just caught a huge break, and I was really surprised team Paw Patrol got booted so early, I thought they'd bounce back from the U-Turn like the boys
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Didn't expect Liz&Michael to do that well :hoot:
I thought their win last time was a dark horse victory like Mike & Rochelle  :funny:

And it looks like the next u-turn would be a revenge by Redmond & Matt  :groan:

U-Turn before detour...  :groan:

But other than that, a solid episode.
You are the last team to arrive.
This is a Philmination leg, so I'm sorry to tell you that you have been Philiminated from the race.

I really enjoyed it (except for the U-turn before the detour. Such a dumb idea that I can't believe they used again)

Wow, here come the episode that I actually like after lose interest with this show for quite a while. Shocking first place and elimination. Although the U-Turn before the task is super stupid, had they put it after the Detour, it would change fate of Seth & Olive.

This is why they should do more African leg at the beginning, with 9-10 teams still in it. It really mess with the teams and squeeze out their true potential. We did see a lot more of the teams in this leg and I enjoyed it. Hopefully this season will keep its momentum.

Vanck though. :lol: <33
Douchbag: Do you scare of me?
Vanck: Umm... *awkward pause* not...?
OMG. <3333333

Can't watch Episode 3 on TV when I get back from vacation. No replay for me. :'( :'( :'(

Looks like a really fun episode, especially with the W-turn and the passport drama. The first 2 teams on Leg 1 are suddenly fighting for last!? Now that's quite a shock. That's 9th place curse either way. :o

I'll find a way to watch the episode eventually, but if I'm getting this right, Seth & Olive's downfall was the U-turn, which didn't happen to the other team anyway. ???
Lowkey lurking until TAR returns.

I actually liked the U-TURN as one of the very first route markers, right at the start. Nobody can say that it's an unfair placement because every point of the race you should be aiming to be in first place, and if at that point there's a blind U-TURN and you're in first, then it's all fair and square. The boys got to the mat in 4th even.. so I guess it was just a tough day for Seth and Olive, whom I kinda like. That's three good teams in a row gone, and I still am hoping for Sara and Shamir to be gone. :groan:

Still haven't watched the episode. It will have to wait tomorrow or the the day after that when I watch it on tv. But stoked already to have early legs in Africa with 9 teams, Africa is a different playing field. I find African legs really challenging and while some challenges may seem simple, it's the little mistakes that sends a team home.

If a team utilizes a Blind U-Turn, are they still allowed to use another U-Turn? Can't really remember the policy for Blind U-Turns. I know Non-Blind U-Turns are one-time usage.

Though on this leg:
-yes for another Tanzania visit...
-uturn before the detour in this leg for me was fine since it was put at the first half of this leg... And it's a fair game for anyone who used it, cause there's spare time to catch up... So no probs with u turn placement...
-the detour was fine to me... I like the contrast of the detour in this leg and they are equally dificult to be done quickly...
-rb was really cool and amazing, you have to interact and negotiate with the vendors in order to get what list written with your money that given in the previous leg+ this leg... And this term is really cool, and will affect mostly with the team that ran out the money and can't negotiate
- Liz and Mike win <333 mike and rochelle's vibe with a big improvement...
- the editing in this leg was fairly great...


Verdict: It was a great leg so far, in fact, best leg so far in this season.. This season has been great so far with editing that improved massively, and you can feel the TAR golden era vibe that we've missed in recent season... So good job
what might have been
