We are back. Bert tries it again. He is right. They are now of to the drum task.

Ivana feels annoyed.

KB have now arrived at the drum. All 5 teams are now here.

KI try it again. Ivana blanked. Ivana "we have been here hours" She wants to take a penalty.

Its now night fall.

Andrea: I don't understand, but okay.

SP now getting a try. They are right. The clue is a pic of Jon at the Panama sign. The pitstop is at one of two Panama signs, and teams need to pay attention to the correct one. Tricky!

KI now get another try and they are correct. They are in second.

KR/KB still practicing. AA Give it a shot. They mess up.

SP Arrive first. They are team #1. SP:This is the hardest leg of the race.

Prize: Trip to New Orleans, Arizona.

KI arrive at the wrong Panama sign lmao!!

Commercial.

Also no animal connection this leg, so there goes that memory task idea.

So everybody ultimately ended up boxing?

Yes, with S&P, A&A, and K&R switching from beer to box.

Is the Panama sign becoming the next Foucault's pendulum? :P

We are back. KI are lost and Ivana wonders if there is another sign. They get back in their cab again.

Adam feels like he is getting worse.

KR trying it again. And they are correct.

We are left with KB and AA in the bottom 2.

AA on their second try and they mess up (Adam does).

KB on their first attempt. KB get it!! AA in last.

KR arrive in second.

AA on their fourth attempt. They are correct.

Commercial.

All teams on their way to the pitstop.

AA in last make into third place. Wow.

KB went to the wrong Panama sign.

KI arrive in fourth.

KB arrive in last.  This is a NEL leg!

Next time: Regina.  Detour: Grain task. Sell cows (auction).

Campbell Soup - task (stacking it).

Double Uturn!

Was wondering when soup would come into play. Campbell's was a sponsor, yet we didn't hear a peep out of them all season.

Karen & Bert still alive  :conf:

Regina!!  :dick I was hoping it was elsewhere in SK (my hopes were on Moose Jaw. Crushed right now) since we didn't see anything on that leg.

Really, stacking Campbell's Soup for the third Saskatchewan visit?

Ah well, I can't complain about the repeat S29 NEL sequence when it gave Karen a taste of what happened to Jen and Kisha (technically Mrs. Hoffman, a non-racer).

The sisters won UB in FL on Mother's Day and dedicated their victory to their mom, the same holiday that just NEL'd Mrs. Richards.

I like to point out that the teams that were drunk from the beer detour were top 3 this leg :P

With this plus, the beer from TAR China from a few weeks ago, Beer seems to be quite beneficial.....mostly if racers get to drink it, not just carry them, that is.

Good one, that was a whole display of animals, even if they weren't live ones, and the clue did point them directly to what they were supposed to look for there.

Yeah, they were specifically told to look for the white wolf. There's the animal connection this leg.

Great, difficult leg. Definitely beats TAR29's Panama visit (though speaking of which, I have more respect for Floyd now as a drum major. Apparently that is not easy :lol:

Also superior to the Family Edition debut and as significant as the S19 penultimate episode.

The leg was okay but am I the only one who finds this season... boring?

Not boring in the sense of I can't watch the episodes without falling asleep, but boring in the sense that everyone has fallen into a state of being consistent with their placements and more or less being stuck into them. It's unexciting to see the same teams always fighting for first with the same teams always trailing.

Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time
I've got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined

I agree that this season seems off...

But I feel like we have more *suspense* that last season regarding team placement. I mean last season it was always going to be between the girls and Jillian/Emmett, while this season I feel like anymore in the top 5 (except Karen & Burt) may have a chance to win this.

I think the problem this year may be the locations, Vancouver for a third time, another BC leg, Ottawa and Regina again. I liked the international legs, but only the Newfoundland and Alberta legs in Canada were good.

Also the teams are a bit bleh. I don't know....I don't relate to the teams that much. I feel like we need more 'regular' everyday person teams. I don't want  to see just top-model/super good looking people. Beside Deb & Shabbir, and maybe Karen & Bert, I feel like every other person is like a 20 something good looking/athletic/smart, etc. I want to see grandparents, curvey people, nerds, the girl next door, etc.

Anyway, I still love this season and will continue watching, but I wish for a more diverse cast.
