I think SoYoung might be referring to the top 3 teams in the first Leg finishing in the exact same order on the Final Leg. If so, then it would be a first here on TAR30. That has never happened before.
In fact, TAR1 and TAR20 are the only seasons where the Top 3 of the first Leg were the Final 3 of the Race. Except, Guidos and Frank & Margarita/Brendon & Rachel and Art & JJ switched places on the Final Leg.

Most seasons have had 1 or 2 of the 1st Leg Top 3 in the Final Leg and of course many first Leg winners have gone on to also win the Race. A few seasons also where teams finished in the same place as their first Leg. But never all 3 teams.

So it would be a first if the Final Leg placements will also be:
Winners: Kristi & Jen
2nd Place: Cody & Jessica
3rd Place: Henry & Evan
It's certainly possible.

Yes this is what i meant. Thank you. our bottom 3 this week would be their final placement as well based on the spoilers if they are correct.

Joey looks like he is in pain running in the promo and it shows something happened while climbing up the tower

Not sure if this has been mentioned but remember on the flight from Switzerland to Harare where there were photos of Lifeguards, Debaters, and Firefighters seated together? Jessica said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter that Jody did form an alliance that happened organically, which likely means Jody, Skiiers, and Indy were together on the flight (in the front of the plane/in the front of the pack). Also, Ring Girls did an interview on Rob Has a Podcast and said Jody were targeted by everyone from the start, but Dessie and Kayla wanted to make an alliance with Jody.

Judging from the season-long preview, it looks like we may have 3 big tasks for the HK leg?

A task in Aberdeen? (Though we lost them there)
RB at central pier (in preview)
Task at Lan Kwai Fong (Indy's elimination / Jody's sighting)

It looks good for a HK leg! (Previous HK legs except TAR17 ate all lame)

Speculation theory:

After this first head-to-head, most people believe the next one will be in St-Tropez, France (aka leg 4) with the Pétanque task.
I think it will also lead to elimination:

If I'm not mistaken, the task is taking place at the same place of the pitstop (Place des Lices)

We saw some teams hanging in the background of some pictures (The competitive eaters), which would mean that this team lost and are waiting for the next team.

And we have a picture of two teams at the mat at the same time: The lifeguards and the Basketballers. I think they are the last two teams to check in (like we just had with the firefighters and Goat Yoga).

And we never saw team Basketball after that... So I would guess that they got Eliminated, with Lifeguards being in 8th place

I'm talking about this picture. And notice the flags?  We had similar flags along the course of the first head-to-head

I don't know if the Head-to-head and its placement is hilarious, infuriating or just inexplicable and absurd. It definitely feels like a contrived way to further the "most competitive" hype.

There's another Head-to-Head!!!

Don't care that it is at the end of the leg. GREAT PLACE to put it, but still calling it to the Head-to-Head  :cmas12

And one is enough for a season...
LLLL

0 wins and 4 losses. 18th on the ladder. We Suck.

No Bourkie...putting it at the end of a leg is AWFUL. I don't think any other franchise has EVER done that. This purely sucks.

Good eye stunami, but I REALLY hope you are not right!!

Do we have this?

That sounds familiar to me. I remember seeing a similar article back during the filming. At least the details about the song and the reformed Four Brothers. Whether it's in here upthread, I couldn't say.

I suspect it won't. It sounds like the sort of deal where he’ll go to each location, film any stand-ups and on camera interviews and can do voiceovers anywhere. And it would be relatively quick as well.(Most of the episodes if not all of them, would have co-hosts as a few were named in the press release as reported on Deadline Hollywood website.

Speaking of Zimbabwe, TV Guide lists episodes 7 and 8 on February 7th as both occuring in Zimbabwe, which I think confirms what many have suspected of there being two Zimbabwe legs.

In the preview of the frites head-to-head comp, there was no sign of Jody, who ended up winning the leg.  In tonight's preview of the next bocce head-to-head comp there is no sign of Jody again.  Another first place finish coming up ??

If I remember correctly, in one of the early previews, there was a clip of the Skiers and Jody at the Petanque faceoff and the Skiers being disappointed, so it's possible that was for first judging by their track records. As we know though, previews aren't always accurate, so we'll see.

Random fun fact: This is the first season in which the final 3 teams each won one of the first three legs.

Well curling and crokicurl were two of the least offensive TAR Canada Face Offs, though their placement on a Penultimate Leg is still  :cmas30:
But petanque is certainly better than basketball or water polo.

Current Leg Discussion should go into that leg please.

So Leg 4 spoilers can be discussed in the leg 4 thread...

Moved a couple. :)

Current Leg Winners:

Leg 1 - Skiers

Hopefully this will be their final placement as well. Love the pattern
