I agree that it's not the woman lifeguard walking the plank. She's a bit chunky and the woman on the plank is thin. Probably the blonde skier if I had to guess.

IT doesn't really matter who it is..

THat wasn't proof the lifeguards were struggling or anyone is struggling because they got dropped once.

No matter who it is, it gives nothing away about where in the task they are. Could be first, could be last. Unless the person who was there live blabbed, no way to tell IMO.

We see one team...nothing to compare to.

THIS is interesting though and we haven't commented on it.

What's going on in the cell? Maybe other team member has to find / decipher something??

Yesterday the picture of the woman racer on the diving board was proof that the lifeguards had failed a diving challenge and finished last. Today's version of the truth is that the woman was one of the skiers. Maybe this means the skiers finished last?  :knock:

Lady in this picture is not Jessica nor from Debaters/LGs. Its the Skiers. Circled in Red & Green. Green one has pink shirt on. #TAR30 #Jody

that person takes things we say, adds a bunch of wild speculation and states it as fact.

So what can we conclude from this ? Most people were thinking that lifeguards got eliminated since they were unable to do the diving challenge. Now that is proven wrong. Who was eliminated ?
I still see Skiers and Indys together doing that roadblock, also later a picture of those two teams was taken by a local fan. So what are we sure off as of now ?

When was that ever quoted as proof? They were talking about who they thought the mystery woman was and this is an explanation of who this person thinks it is.  :knock:

Since we believe they were FIRST in Harare....why would you think they didn't?

they made it to Dubai... I don't really know exactly what happened but from someone who's posted proof they were there, they said lifeguards didn't make it to Bahrain for some reason... and I think Phil alluded to it when jody got to the pit stop... he said something like "you're the last team here... but lifeguards didn't make it to Bahrain"

I don't know if they lost their passport, missed a flight, or what ...

Wow...that would be heartbreaking if true. My heart would not want that to happen to any teams EVER again.

Former Racers  who went thru that relive it forever.

This roadbloack was tailor made for Lifeguards as it had a diving element to it. If what you are saying in true, then Cody & Jessica got very lucky! But you positive that it wasn't a non elimination leg ?

^ Dan, he wouldn't say "you're the last team to arrive" if they indeed weren't, but that's just FYI.
Could you confirm with Peach that the info from this source is legit, Dan? Just so everyone doesn't question it as much.

By the way, since it looks like we're in Asia (or Oceania) for the remaining legs now, I'm guessing there should be quite a lot of sightings from the future legs, so we'll likely find out who's not there, and therefore was eliminated in Bahrain, if anyone's interested in that. :tup:

By the way, even if Lifeguards missed a flight or fell way behind for some other reason... NELs are pre-determined, and if this leg was a NEL (which we don't know that it wasn't), then they would still be in it, even if hours behind.
So I wouldn't count on saying they definitely left in 5th place yet.


ETA: to DontKillMe, I don't know why you're saying that this was a diving challenge. To me it looks like the diving part was just added for the fun of it - i.e. performers have to take a dive if they're wrong with the question(s), they're not diving down to do a task underwater or something.

It appears that the challenge has more to do with answering questions correctly than diving. I don't understand how a challenge with a diving element equates to Cody and Jessica getting lucky (and not the others who are still in the race as well).

Agreed! A confirmation with the admin would do it for all skeptics.
I think you are correct. Maybe it was more of a question/answer challenge than a diving challenge.

I could totally see him doing a fakeout thing.. Teasing them like they were going out but they weren't..

need help with something... I was pretty sure I heard Phil say at the start they would go to 5 continents, but I can't find the video of it... its important because if true it means they likely went to Australia after Bahrain.

Isn't it too late for 5 continents ? With supposedly 3 legs left, crossing two continents seems unviable to me.
I think they will either cover Europe, Africa, Asia, North America OR Europe, Africa, Oceania, North America.
Thoughts ?

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!

What's that you say? ???
