An oddity in TARC4
« on: October 03, 2017, 01:59:38 AM »
Sorry if this has been discussed before...

I was just rewatching some TAR Canada 4 so I could do some work on our wiki. In the penultimate leg in New Brunswick, something struck me as odd. The clue for the Roadblock said "Jillian and Amy must perform this Roadblock."

Before this leg, J&E's Roadblock tally sat at "Jillian 4, Emmett 6", so Emmett had reached his maximum of 6. Jillian even says this out loud in the episode.

But why did Amy have to complete it? Before this leg, their Roadblock tally was an even "Frankie 5, Amy 5".

My first thought was perhaps there was an unaired Roadblock somewhere on the Nova Scotia leg, since that one didn't air with a Roadblock in the first place. That doesn't answer things, though, since Joel & Ashley and Steph & Kristen both also had 5-5 Roadblock splits. There was no possible outcome that I could think of where Amy would be forced to do the Roadblock, but no-one from J&A and S&K would be forced to do it.

So what's going on here...?

Good question..

Allergies maybe? Because it had to do with plants and flowers, maybe Frankie was allergic?

Jillian explains after they open the clue: "Emmett's done 6 RB's and I've done 4 and we each have to have 5 completed."

It didn't have anything to do with the bluff. I looked it up. They used their Express Pass on the leg 6 Roadblock AFTER Amy already said she would do it. So the RB count going into leg 10 was technically only Frankie 5, Amy 4.

Thanks, I stand corrected.
