It's cool.

Two of the last three seasons have increased the count to three, which heavily suggests a trend towards more.

S27 did them at F8, F6, and F5.

S29 was F9, F7, and F6.

Usually there are 2, yes. Seasons 27 and 29 were the exceptions where they threw in a third U-Turn. 28 only had 2 (according to one team, one of them we didn't see because nobody used it)

And final 4 NELs have happened plenty of times. I kinda like them, keeps us in suspense of the final elimination for an extra week.

The last true F4 NEL was during S25, the penultimate-finale twist for that season and the following one notwithstanding.

NEL's haven't typically happened at Final 4 usually in the recent seasons, but anything is possible

I just think it would be weird for the timeline to not have at least one NEL left, whether it was Final 5 in Bahrain just now, or the next leg with Final 4

It would be very unorthodox for them to be in Bahrain with only one leg between it and the final leg

Being so recent, that sounds like what I wrote, "a trend towards more".

True, this season's looking like either F9-F6-F4 or F9-F5-F4, both unlike any previous one.

I think it will be a NEL next.  Then leg 11 will go from 4 to 3

From this Jody check-in video, posted earlier https://mobile.twitter.com/ffsEman/status/921146655952572416/video/1

Looks like the Tree of Life is the Pit Stop? Phil must have taken that Instagram video while waiting there.

I'm confused as to where the confirmation is that the Lifeguards got eliminated in 5th?

I personally haven't seen it, but I might've just missed something? ???

Then again, people were adamant that they were out in St. Tropez, soooooo

not sure but there was no given proof the twins got eliminated in 6th but that ended up being proven true..

Clearly somebody has ties with production and can't reveal the source.

No evidence of Lifeguards being out yet. I.e., no source, it's in rumour state so far I'd say.
Regarding twins, Peach confirmed they were out.

Thanks, Alenaveda! This was from today's leg in Bahrain. I'm guessing that was where the pit stop was but you can't tell from the pictures. No real evidence there though there is at least one person next to the tree in one of the pictures. It also explains why Phil was tweeting a picture of the Tree of Life earlier.

I think the last picture shows a pitstop mat? Also just saw Phil Instagram video it seems he took it at some place around there?

Call me Captain Oblivious! I completely missed seeing the mat.  :groan:  I think that it is the mat anyway. I'm glad I thought the rest of the picture was interesting enough to post. That undoubtedly is where Phil shot his video since he filmed the Tree of Life and that is the same Tree of Life in those pictures. I was searching on Tree of Life.

It just shows how different it is in Bahrain when what would be a medium sized tree in my area has a visitor center built for it there.

Speaking of which, does visiting Bahrain finally mean a new country for the race?

Spec:
The Man who took the pics and the video is apparently affiliated with the Bahrain National Stadium. Perhaps there was a task there as well?  Cricket? Football? ???

I am a cricket nerd and Peach, cricket is NOT played in Bahrain. Soccer, however, could be a real possibility!
Just some weird Australian bloke, who loves reality TV shows...

Do you have any proof for that ? Moreover it could've been a NEL or a continue racing leg! Nobody knows.

i can't find any source/evidence about that in this thread, only video that saying Jody finished 4th. And no confirmation whether Bahrain was elimination or NEL

true but as I stated before there was no source given for the twins going out 6th.. None what so ever and it was true.

Often sources can't be given because people will lose their jobs among other things.

Dan, is this from  source that can't be published or is there more evidence?

Thats such a cliche excuse used over and over. Nobody will lose his/her job. That chick from bahrain openly shared info of TAR happening. Then according to you, her job is gone ?
You can always share pic/convo by excluding the source name & face. Atleast we have something to work on rather than just "Ok this happened and simply believe me!"

Even if they did you wouldn't believe it anyway because everyone on here doubts absoutely everything..  They would just say they are lying or that it doesn't prove anything. It is nearly impossible to prove anything about the race until the next leg comes along and you can see who isn't there.

The way I see this forum is in three parts,
one being gathering bits of info via source & providing same to the forum
two being members of the forum scrutinizing that source info provided
three being, fora members filling the missing pieces of the puzzle which the source was unable to reveal through logic & reason.

The problem i'm seeing is that some people seem to be boasting their ego by keeping source info to themselves resulting in a situation where nothing is moving forward. Its all talk, a hollow hollow talk.

Because every time anybody posts anything that they know everyone harrases them with "PROVE IT"  "I don't believe you"  etc..

But what you don't realize is it is extremely extremely hard to 100% prove something, even with pictures...  There is always going to be some doubt if you look for it.

If everyone keeps being rude to people than they just aren't going to bother giving out info and trying anymore..

Just my 2 cents.
