^ So what does the memory task involve? Damn geoblock
Teams have to place all their placements for the past 11 legs on the scoreboard and would be given an equation after to solve for a three-digit number. Then, they had to find the seat number which matches their correct answer to locate their clue.

Wow. Hopefully notes were allowed or that will be ridiculously hard. The season 22 final 3 had trouble remembering just 3 placements.

Even though I'm a massive Red Sox fan, I don't think u should be discussing them on the Cubs's patch....

At least he didn't say GO CARDINALS!

"Stay tuned" caption recognization:
1-10 are Chicagoland Speedway, check!
11-13 is London running along LaSalle Street in the business district toward the Chicago Board of Trade Building. Exact point of the sprint scene is 120 North LaSalle.
14-16 is Tara & Joey on DuSable Bridge (fun fact: a historical drawbridge built at the beginning of the Roaring 20's)
17-22 is Wrigley Field, check!
23-24 is Scott & Brooke on the intersection of South Wabash Avenue and East Congress Parkway, exactly at the west corner of Roosevelt University
28-30 is Scott & Brooke running at Milton Lee Olive Park and an unrelated festival is taking place in the background.
31-40 is Murphy's Rooftop Bleachers
43 is LoLo preparing the board the Chicago L tram on what I hope is the red train line, most likely on their way to Lake View
Anyone have a single clue why teams were running around downtown Chicago like chickens with their heads cut off? London sprinting south, Tara & Joey running north, and Scott & Brooke going west? ??? :)

Just supplemental info from the promo. Key: Blue is London, green is Tara & Joey, and orange is Brooke & Scott.


Mistake: Tara & Joey seems to be running south, not north. Gotta remember: Never eat sour watermelons. :lol:

This is going to be tough to watch. I am a lifelong, die hard Cleveland Indians fan. I attended games 6 and 7 of the ill-fated world series, and now I will have my nose rubbed in it once again even though this took place months before they won. Ugh.

As a Rangers fan, at least they didn't go to Busch Stadium in St. Louis or the Rogers Centre in Toronto.

Really cool final task... potential to be the greatest final task meltdown since 12 and 21... could be

Overall the tasks was amazing in concept, could be one of the greatest season finale if the editing and additional details executed well... or could be like Tar 19 (cooltask concept but in the end underwhelming)

Speaking of Tar 19, omg there are ernie and cindy with their cute son <33 :lol:
what might have been

I'm not seeing it mentioned anywhere, but Scott & Brooke's placements currently align with the numbers next to the cities on the Wrigley Field board (all be it the Zanzibar leg where they moved from 7th to 6th after Becca & Floyd had their passport drama), so that has to be what the final memory task involves...

From that photo of the board, can we assume Scott and Brooke are in first place since only their placements are up?
Also, the numbers next to Zanzibar (7) and Lake Como (4th) are incorrect. They came 6th and 5th in those legs respectively.

Wow I like the final task was a bit more complex than simply remember the placement on the cities they visited.


Has anyone noticed the board number placement on the finale promo match Brooke & Scott placement once again just like the board pic spoiler we get on last July.

Hopefully they are in first place  :conf:

So the preview shows B&S scores as a demonstration, but at the live sighting the numbers were a bit different and not all correct so that was the real scores put on by B&S.

From this task design, the difficulty depends on whether they can solve the equation before getting all scores correct, if they need to solve the equation to realize they are wrong, it could take time to correct the mistakes (run to change scores and calculate and run to seat again). If they have a judge to tell they are correct or wrong before solving equation, that would be easier. I think production may go for the latter, but I like the no-checking arrangement more.

Was there no B&S live sighting around the stadium? It's interesting they're not spotted despite they were supposed to be leading at that point...?

They were sighted to enter Wirgley Field with around 30 minutes lead over Tara & Joey, but we never saw them exit Wirgley Field. Probably they use another exit gate and end up we didn't sighted them.

It's possible for any of them to win, I suppose.

-London & Logan, my top pick based on the fact the most boringly-edited of the final 3 most often wins.
-Tara & Joey, we've heard about their families over and over. Not much of a villain edit, which is usually a sign a team doesn't win.
-Brooke & Scott, eh...before last season I'd have said they have the least chance with Brooke's role as the traditional "hysterical" racer. But then Matt & Dana.

In Leg 1, London & Logan got 6th and Tara & Joey got 7th, but there were time credits which pushed T/J to 6th anld LoLo to 8th. I hope this doesnt give Brooke & Scott anl advantage in the placement memory challenge

Brooke & Scott (and LoLo again) were in a similar situation in leg 3, when TeamFun arrived 5th, but dropped to 8th while searching for their lost passports. During that time, Brooke & Scott rose from 7th to 6th, and LoLo from 6th to 5th.

I think they have judge on the final task based on the caps.

Something I noticed in the first Vietnam leg... Brooke studying for the Final Memory Task?  :spy:
