Apparently this is the gist of the SF task. This was added to the wiki page, with a Polygon (gaming site) article as source.

In the leg's second Roadblock, the selected teammate will be coached to play the video game Street Fighter V. They they will have to face a professional eSport player, including Seon-woo “Infiltration” Lee and Lee Chung "Poongko" Gon, in the game and attempt to beat them in ten rounds. If the teammate fails to do so, the professional player then plays one-handed for another ten rounds, and then finally plays blindfolded until the racer wins.

Thanks. There's a video attached--where Phil answers my questions about handicapping--but I can't find an embed code.

Not sure if this is us, but I've been asking around Seoul about Amazing Race-like filming activity about a month after they passed through.

There were a couple of residents in the Bukchon neighbourhood that pointed me to a homestay hanok called Hanulchae Guesthouse. Possible location for this leg, maybe the kimchi task?

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Really interesting to see that this is most definitely a night penultimate leg!  :conf:

The competition also seems close - Brooke & Scott and Tara & Joey arrive at the cups AND the game together (with LoLo catching up to them at the game!).

Cannot wait to see this leg.

Hope there's a dance challenge or twerking challenge.
It would be funny if someone had a meltdown over the inability to twerk during a KPOP routine. :funny:

A slight detail I noticed:



There is a cluebox behind Phil. Teams get their next clues if they complete this Roadblock from there?

Dang 7.0 seconds... It will be harsh for all contestants...

While i was read the record of the fastest stacking up last time, it was approximately 4.6 seconds... (idk if the record wwas changed but so far i know (and i play) was that)

And based on the preview, i think they will do a cycle configuration (but it may be 3-6-3, cmiiw)

Watching the Insider vids and from the clip of Brooke & Scott after the cup stacking RB there's a nice shot of the additional information for a change.



  • "Use a pre-paid marked taxi waiting outside of the gym to [get to the Mugyewon?].
    You should keep your taxi."
  • "The Mugyewon Arts & Cultural Center's address is [Korean script], Seoul, South Korea.

I'm unsure if this was because the cultural center is hard to find or if production wanted to reduce the amount of variables in play for this leg but in either case it's interesting.

I remember posting the picture from the Bs. As. Bus Terminal back in TAR20 and how teams picked cabs waiting in a different section from the rest of the passengers and all of them belonged to the same taxi company; so it wouldn't be the first time this kind of instructions are given.

Leg 2, when they arrived from Salta after doing the Detour and needed to travel to the RB location.
