I'm hoping we'll be using the same QuickTopic board for this

Yep, in NYC.

So no split first leg like the previous two seasons, back to a single premiere elimination. Sadly knew who would be the first eliminated for a few weeks, as whoever was watching the Wikipedia page was quite insistent on reverting edits back to their name having the red 12th :(

Except season 5, the first team who booted for every seasons were F/F teams, but this version also have many stong F/F teams like Romi/Coral, Bar/Inna and Lee/Tal, and season 5 is the only season so far have more M/M teams than F/F teams

In the interest of the English-language Wiki, I have a couple of questions for our Hebrew-reading members, on information I haven't been able to find.

-What are the teams' correct team relationships as displayed on screen? The Google Translation...didn't turn out so well on a couple of them (e.g. Omer & Neta, being brother and sister I'm pretty sure are "Siblings", but it came out as "Brothers"!)
-What are their last names? Without a last initial, Mor & Mor are obviously going to be a problem in identifying who did what Roadblock :P

Also, not a question, just adding. Helen...I can't unsee a resemblance to Jackie Ibarra from TAR26! :P

Thought it was an enjoyable premiere.

The opening heights was pretty good, and I liked the nod to 1930s New York construction and the lax safety standards. Thought the IKEA task was creative with the spot the differences and having to find the correct items in store. Not too to say about the olive oil task aside from a few moments of physical comedy. Despite not knowing Hebrew, I have a decent understanding of a majority of the teams and they appear to have potential. Looking forward to New York and the rest of the season.

Yossi & Udi - Firefighter and Volunteer Policeman
Mor & Mor - New Mothers
Nimrod & Jonathan - Pianists
Noa & Ma'ayan - Cousins
Meitar & Adi - Childhood Friends

Hanni & Avivit - Holon Municipality Officers

and, they are Mor Silva and Mor Swede, so just put down Mor Si. and Mor Sw. (a la the TAR Asia 4 page)

...at least, that's what I got.

Do people still want me to do my super-quick description of the tasks post after each episode?

Just watched the first third of the first episode before my coffee got cold. Ah, those super long Merotz episodes.

So far, my assessment from the first 30-minutes glance(admitted bias towards F/F teams because American TAR could get some casting lessons from Merotz)

Love:
Hanni/Avivit - they seem to be pretty competent and they deal with high-stress situations in their daily lives. Hanni is a little extra, but so far I think it's endearing.
Evelyn/Tohar - the story about losing their baby was a heart breaking one - losing a child is not something unique to them, but they seem to be really genuine and sweet.
Mor/Mor - despite the fact that they have the same name which makes it confusing, I believe that they along with Helen/Regev were the first at the construction task.
Nimrod/Yonatan - they're so nerdy, but I like the fact that they enunciate clearly so I don't have to be constantly reading to keep up with them. I hope they do well.

Like:
Daniel/Eliyahu - They don't seem like the super-alpha-males that dominate so many seasons of American TAR. I like their derpyness. Daniel is the hotter one.
Anne/Yarden - They seem fun. Anne wears WAY too much makeup.
Helen/Regev - They also seem fun, and I like a couple that can make fun of each other and laugh about it.
Adi/Meitar - I thought that they were a gay couple at first, but Adi just has a short-ish hairstyle and kind of a masculine face, but seems to be really down-to-earth. Meitar is gorgeous. Their intro was really cute.
Yossi/Udi - Giving off Tiltil/Mizrahi vibes, lovable dads. Although Udi, in the intro spot - what the fuck is wrong with you? You want your children to be proud of you, but then you go on the Amazing Race and the first thing you do is burst into tears and walk off-camera? (Totally joking, but I hope I don't have to watch a whole season of guys crying)

Dislike:
No'a/Ma'ayan - The rare F/F team that I dislike. They seem too into themselves, with Ma'Ayan's description of herself as an Instagram model. No'a seems somewhat tolerable.
Omer/Neta - Omer seems like a giant tool, and Neta comes off as an airhead. They struck me as bratty.
Jessica/Asaf - No. Can't stand Jessica's voice and Asaf's smugness. I know that exes make for "good TV" but that whole ice-skating to Frozen bit...just no.
TAR. USA/Israel.

Are these (Wikipedia's) the spellings we're going with? Are we sure it's Eliyahu? Maybe it's just me, but I swear on the show they're pronouncing it just "Eliya"

(I just ask because if I have to change the spelling of a name later, like I did with Alla's in season 4, it's a lot of tedious wiki work)

Episode 2 is online; however, when clicked the video says that the "content isn't available in your country" but still plays the audio. There are other ways to watch the episode (I know I can't publicly post links), so here are some thoughts:

Hard not to feel bad for the cops after struggling so much with the first task (even the clue giver comforted them) to losing the face off at the end of the episode.

So weird watching the show do a task at Washington Square Park three weeks after attending the live start. The spot the scale was set up was nearly the same spot where I waited for the TAR 30 teams to arrive.

Was hilarious watching the teams ask tourists and NYU graduates in full robes to volunteer. Also hilarious to see the confusion of the teams when they asked for people's weights in kilos only to get a response in pounds.

During the face off, one of the models (don't know names yet) stepped of the side of the platform as opposed to being pulled of building.  :funny:

No preview at the end and no full intro.

GB, according to a post on the show's Facebook, Eliyahu is the correct spelling. Also, here are the locations so far:

Newark Liberty International
Central Park
Washington Square Park
Bush Terminal in Sunset Park (Face Off and Yield vote)
Élan Flowers (Last clue before episode ended)

Correct, all the cabs at the airport had yellow NJ plates as opposed to orange or blue NY plates. Also, in their cab, the cops said "This is New York" to which their cab driver responded "This is New Jersey," and when they got out their cab said Newark on the side door.

ianthebalence, there are ways to watch episode 2, I just do not know where to post considering RFF's rules.

New York City is one of the very few foreign places I have actually visited, so it's wonderful every time I get to see it.

While it was sad to see the cops struggling so much at the big apple task, I did have to laugh as they showed a crew member packing up the race flag and carrying it away. That's sort of halfway breaking the fourth wall, and the team even commented on it.

Wow, that is A BIG DOG in Washington Square! It was taller than the female contestant and then it jumped on her!! Who knew Clifford lived in New York?

Emily? Ashley. Emily? Ashley! Angela? Jessica? ASHLEY!!

Tug-of-war does not belong on The Amazing Race. It is never fair, and it never will be.

Can anyone help me find the location of the Yield vote board? Pretty sure it's in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. I THINK I saw a street sign nearby saying 50th Street, but it was blurry. Looks like there's some sort of tool shop on the intersection where it's located.

can explain the task so far

Leg 1

Winter Lake Park: Teams had to walk across an I-beam suspended high above the park. Teams only had a short rope to balance each other. When teams reached the end of the beam, they had to sit down on the beam next to a marked lunch tin and have a picture taken holding the tin.

IKEA: Teams would choose a room display inside the store. Once teams thought that they had all the details in the room memorized, they would go outside to a similar looking display. Teams had to spot what was different in the outdoor display. They then would have to find all the correct items in the store and present them to a judge.

Yavneh Food Products Group: Teams had to balance themselves on opposite ends of a seesaw. Teams had to walk to the middle of the seesaw and fill a bucket with cups of olive oil. If either end of the seesaw touched the ground, teams would have to go back. After teams completed the task, their only instruction to find the pit stop was to find the mikveh that has been teaching agriculture for nearly 150 years.

Leg 2

Central Park: Teams had to toss a ball painted to look like an apple (The Big Apple) on top of a metal structure, an inverted cone atop a smaller cone. Teams had to balance the ball while they walked to a corresponding can. Once teams reached the can, they had to tilt the structure so the ball falls into the can. If the ball fell off the structure, teams had to start over.

Washington Square Park: Teams had to gather people to stand on a scale. Teams needed enough people to reach a weight of approximately 1636 kilograms (the weight of one million shekels using only five-shekel coins). Weights between 1631-1641 were acceptable.

Bush Terminal: (Double Battle) Tug-of-war atop two buildings. First team to pull the other off the roof advances.

Élan Flowers: Teams had to pick up a bouquet of flowers and four present. They then had to walk to Ari Soho and pick up 10 suits. They then walked to Ground Support Cafe to pick up 8 cups of coffee. They then walked to Art + Autonomy Salon to pick up a bag of golf clubs and a rolling luggage. They had to bring all of these items intact to "Mr. Donald" at 241 Centre St. If any of the items were lost or destroyed, they would have to go back.

Times Square - LaLine: Teams had to pick up a tray of scented body cream. They then had to walk around Times Square and encourage passersby to try their cream until they found a miniature race flag hidden in one of the creams.

Upper West Side - Big Daddy's: Teams would order off a menu written in Hebrew, which contained only the names of specials like "Million Dollar Baby" and "The American Dream." Teams were instructed to find the signature dish by ordering from the menu. They would then find out and be given the food they ordered, but the server would blend the drinks into a shake for the teams to drink. Teams would be told if they found the signature dish after completing their shake. If they did not find the signature dish, then teams would have to make another order. Once teams ordered the signature dish, they would be given a chocolate milk shake (some teams thought it was a trick) to drink and would be given their next clue.

United Palace: Teams had to perform a scene from the musical Peter Pan. One had to dress as Wendy and the other had to dress as Peter Pan. They would have to learn a choreographed routine from a video. When they were ready, they would perform the routine on stage, where Peter Pan would be harnessed to fly. Once they performed the scene correctly, they would receive their next clue.

Louis Valentino, Jr. Park and Pier: Each team had to dress up as the Statue of Liberty and hold a net between the two of them. Three people would them throw balls at them, and teams would have to catch 5 to receive their next clue.

United Nations Headquarters: Teams had to listen to a song that listed several places such as France, England, Italy, China, Japan, Hawaii, Morocco, and Kenya. Teams then had to search Times Square and find one person from three of these locations. They then had to bring all of the people they found to the UN judge standing next to the US Army Recruiting Times Square. Once the judge confirmed that the team had found all of the required people, who would have to present their passports/identification and say hello in their native languages, the team would receive their clue and could check in at the pit stop.

Leg 3

Waikiki Beach: Teams had to dress as mermaids with a coconut bra and a mermaid tail. Teams then had to drag themselves along the beach and find a bucket. Once they found a bucket, teams had to return to the starting point to find a mermaid lying next to an outrigger canoe. They then had to ask someone to douse each of them with a bucket of water and pose for a photo with the mermaid to receive their next clue.

One team member had to ride a water-powered jetpack called a Flyboard high enough to view a grid containing icons associated with Hawaii. The team member on shore had an incomplete grid that was missing several icons. The team member on the Flyboard had to relay the icons while flying above water to their partner on shore to complete the grid. Once all the icons were in there proper spots, teams would receive their next clue.

Fruit Stand: Teams had to pick up a tropical drink from a fruit stand (Sponsor: ספרינג).

Magic Island: (Double battle) Teams had to swim out to an inflatable Saturn floating in the lagoon. They then had to balance on the Saturn and work to knock off their opponents. After 10 minutes, teams could only hold onto the Saturn with one hand. Once both members of a team fell of, the other team would receive their next clue.

Hanni & Avivit lost and received the 15 minute penalty.


Sandy Beach: (Detour: Above the Sand or Under the Sand)

Above: Teams had to pull a heavy stone across the sand using a rope and four logs. As teams moved the stone across the sand, they would have to move the last log to the front of the stone to keep it moving. Once teams pulled the stone across the marked finish, they would receive their next clue.

Under: One team member had to become a human metal detector and had to wear a helmet with a search coil attached while being held by their legs by their partner, who was wearing headphones. Teams had to search a roped-off area of the beach and find a metal plate shaped like a hand in the Shaka position to receive their next clue.

Coral Kingdom Gate (Roadblock): One team member had to ride a land sled (TAR 20) down a hill. At the bottom of the hill, the chosen team member had to grab the correct among several incorrect clues. Once they found the correct clue, they would receive their next clue.

Papahana Kualoa: Teams had to grab sweet potatoes wrapped in foil cooking on a fire. Teams then had to walk barefoot across sharp rocks to a basket and peel the potatoes. After teams peeled 25 potatoes, they would receive their next clue.

Bob's Hawaii Adventure (Overnight Rest): One team member travelled by boat to the coral reef in Maunalua Bay. When that person arrived, they entered a BOBdive and would propel themselves to a metal frame containing several baby photos of the racers. The chosen team member would have to find the six photos that pictured their team as children. Once they believed they got all six photos, they would return to the marina. If they were wrong, then their partner would have to search for the correct photos. Once teams found all six photos, a person dressed as a shark would give them their next clue.

Skin Deep Tattoo and Piercing: Teams would receive a temporary tattoo of a map of Honolulu on their backs. Teams would then have to ask locals what was tattooed in order to figure out the location of their next clue.

Bailey's Antiques and Aloha Shirts: Teams had to search through over 15000 Hawaiian shirts for one that matched the pattern given to teams to receive their next clue.

Leg 2 Locations (as of episode 3)

Newark Liberty International
Central Park
Washington Square Park
Sunset Park - Bush Terminal (Double Battle)
Sunset Park - American Made Furniture (Yield Vote)
Élan Flowers
LaLine Times Square
Big Daddy's (Broadway location)
United Palace (HOO and Yield Reveal Board)

When teams arrived at Élan Flowers, they had to perform errands for "Mr. Donald." I only caught three of the four places they went: Ari Soho, Art + Autonomy Salon, and "Mr. Donald's" loft at 241 Centre St Soho. Did not catch the coffee shop (I'm pretty sure it's Ground Support Cafe, but they only showed interior).

Preview: Teams get pelted with baseballs while dressed as the Statue of Liberty (I'm not making this up)
             Pitstop in Times Square with a familiar face.

Again, no full intro.


Done :) It's already clear who's getting Yielded. Regev & Helen have 5/10 votes.

Make that 6/11. Also Maanca, Coconut Verbena was the second task in this episode.

Found one of their last names. Regev is apparently a pseudo-celebrity.

Regev Hod. He's a EuroPop singer, not a bad one, I might add! Even if I can't understand a word.

Examples of some of the shakes made during this episode included burgers and fries, macaroni and cheese, and pizza. 

does anyone throw up

A few teams came close but Regev did.

A couple of the teams say their last names (and ages) in the first episode, including Regev.

I don't suppose anything in the spoiler thread reveals the coffee shop they had to stop by on the delivery task? They totally glossed over it...

I counted only two scenes in the coffee shop. Here's why I believed that Ground Support Cafe was the coffee shop in an earlier post.

Light arrangement is the same. Chalk board is in the same place. Exit sign is attached to same structure above door. White bricks next to a brown shelf in both. The only difference I see is an air conditioner above the door in the Hamerotz picture.

They, most of the time, (as I have heard of) don't have Detour or Roadblock. Just some random but hard tasks.
Whatever.

HaMerotz wasn't big on them last year. The entire season only had 4 Roadblocks, and sometimes no Detour either, legs consisting of only a long sequence of ARI tasks. And Double Battles.

Only TARI 1 had a roadblock in every legs, TARI 2,3 and 4 had 7 roadblocks for each seasons, some legs in TARI had two detours and two types of U-turn (vote U-turn and normal U-turn)

Jai Ho here. Just finished watching episode 1 - it seemed like it took forever but it was worth it. Tough tasks but a lot of shakeups in the order. From what I understand, the next 2 episodes are up but geo-blocked for us Americans (at least visually; I could hear but not see).

Some highlights/observations/musings:

  • Daniel/Eliyahu arriving last at the scaffolding task but 2nd to finish, behind Helen/Regev.
  • Nimrod/Yonatan among the last to arrive at IKEA but the first to finish; subsequently, Daniel/Eliyahu completely losing their lead and being the last to finish at IKEA
  • Jessica talking to herself in Spanish
  • Nimrod/Yonatan not knowing how to operate their car...multiple times  :funny:
  • Anne telling Yarden to stop kissing her cheek and put on her seat belt (safety first kids!)  :funny:
  • Mor/Mor knocking over something glass, sending it crashing to the ground, shattering, and then just walking away like nothing happened  :funny:
  • Daniel/Eliyahu randomly dancing with a GIANT Israeli flag on a stick (probably belonging to the locals they were talking with)
  • Nimrod calling Anne/Yarden "Yarden and...whatever..." (to their faces)  :funny:
  • No'a attempting to give Ma'ayan a physics lesson at the seesaw task  :word:
  • Anne/Yarden not weighing enough to make the seesaw move  :adevil
  • Evelyn/Tohar going from a complete breakdown at the first task to finishing in 3rd  :hoot:
  • Udi crying THREE. DIFFERENT. TIMES. Get a grip.  :haha
  • Hanni/Avivit finding out that the pit stop mat is right near where they live and then proceeding to argue about directions in a confessional. I do like them but they seem to have their fair share of idiotic moments.
  • Daniel/Eliyahu, constantly arguing in confessionals (but it's funny, derpy arguing). Those two are not good at sharing.
  • Neta/Omer blathering on so much at the mat that Ron has to kind of tell them to shut up so he can tell them their placement. And Neta's awful, shrieking voice
  • SO MANY hot men in the cast, aside from the models (Omer, Tohar, Meitar...)
  • Adi/Meitar being practically invisible for the whole episode

If anyone gets a link to a non-geoblocked episode 2 and 3 link me up in this bizzo.

The episodes seem to have individual names. You can use as a starting point http://reshet.tv/mood/the-amazing-race/season-06/episodes/. If you click the links to the individual episodes, you get the "non abbreviated" episode names :)

So many hilarious moments this past episode

Peter Pan and Baseball tasks in general. :funny:

Anne & Yarden convincing their cab drive that their famous singers, being asked to sing by the driver, and singing Hamerotz LaMillion theme.  :funny:

The random woman standing in Omer and Neta's clue reading shot. :funny:

Eliyahu getting hit in the groin with a ball and then covering his groin for remainder of task. :funny:

Mor recognized Krista.  :noway:

Show content
Sad to see Asaf & Jessica go out the way they did. They stumbled onto the pit stop by accident instead of the UN judge.
 They also really looked like they did not expect that placement.

This was a long, brutal one. Four "run around, find people to do this" tasks packed in one leg (counting the SoHo task since that was still a lot of legwork and navigating), and in the crazy congested streets of Manhattan, no less.

Now off to Hawaii, which no doubt to them is going to feel like paradise after this, more than it already is :lol:

Based on the Disney Store behind them, Pit Stop is a traffic island at the corner of 7th Ave and W 46th St - https://www.google.ca/maps/place/Disney+Store/@40.7584994,-73.9853806,37m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m6!3m5!1s0x89c25855a8f46f7f:0xa856b42e95edb471!4b1!8m2!3d40.7582571!4d-73.9850313?hl=en

Just a gentle request to please keep the next leg's destination behind spoiler tags? I know it's shown in the leg preview, but I really do like to be surprised by hearing the destination. I'm sorry to be a bother.

Man, I LOVED this UN task. I do agree that sometimes they cram a few too many "gather locals" tasks into the race, but this one was great. I loved watching it. I like how only a couple of teams picked up on the fact that Hawaii is in the USA, so any American citizen would fulfill the requirements. Yarden & Anne almost lost this leg because they kept turning away people from America!

I am so glad we didn't lose [10th place team], because I find them absolutely hilarious and want to see them go far!!

...

Cabbie: Where are you from?
Neta: Spain.
Omer: What? Spain?
Neta: What? You want him to get a knife out and shout "Allahu Akbar"?

Oooooooh....

...

I think Hanni's name might actually be "Honey". That's what the URL says on her team's page on the official Reshet site. Can anyone look into this?

Also also, at 15 distinct locations, this is now officially the largest leg of TAR ever.

Updated task list: http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,33458.msg1212220.html#msg1212220

Preview: Pull large stone across logs (similar to Rock & Roll detour from TAR 5) & land sledding (similar to final roadblock from TAR 20)

So, I think some segments were edited out of order. After the Flyboard task on Sand Island, teams went to a fruit stand to pick up a drink. Teams then went to Magic Island for the double battle and receive a clue telling teams to travel to Sandy Beach. However, the fruit stand looks like it was set up on Sandy Beach.

His Instagram and the URL on the official website say Jonathan, but that's definitely his anglicized name (Like how Yossi called himself Josie in NYC) and we don't list those. His name is definitely Yonatan, as that's clearly how everyone is pronouncing it. Yehonatan just has too many letters.

I did notice that and it confused me. It could be that her name is Hany, but she's given herself the English nickname of "Honey". For our Wiki I'm going to stick with Honey because it's on two sources, as opposed to Hany's one source. (I know the same can be said for Jonathan, but that's a different pronunciation so it's a different issue)

There's media, their Facebook page is posting things all the time. It's that auto-translation of Hebrew language online is unfortunately pretty terrible (this is why I've been waiting on the Wikia article before correcting the names). If "Hany" is written on her bracelet, for one, then that must be her correct spelling.

Some of the FB comments turn out pretty hilarious when you hit "translate" :lol: But the reception I'm gathering from them so far is the fans find this to be a less interesting cast. And Regev & Helen are essentially the Israeli Justin & Diana - a polarizing team who gets more screentime than anyone else. Appears so far they're the favourite target at the voting boards, so there must be something to it among the other teams.

Episode 4 had teams dress as the Statue of Liberty.
Episode 5 had teams dress as mermaids.
Episode 6 had teams dress as a human metal detector in a Detour. (Yes, these still exist on this show)

Also, I saw this thing called a Roadblock, never knew this existed.

Mor & Mor talking to the cab driver (who was 78) about men in Israel not having hair after 30.
Cut to Daniel & Eliyahu fixing their hair.  :funny:
Yossi stopping 2 feet before the clues.  :funny:

Regev & Helen have complained about the coalition of teams ganging up on them, yet still prove their proficiency in tasks. They even got the correct clue in the Roadblock on their first attempt.

I'm not 100%, but I'm pretty sure the Roadblock was at the Coral Kingdom Gate (same location as TAR 20 land surfing)

So, what have we learned today?
-If you're making a human wheelbarrow, put the FEMALE in front. She's a lot lighter to lift.
-Neta is terrible at peeling potatoes
-You probably shouldn't do a victory dance while standing barefoot on sharp rocks (Nimrod...)
-If after five seasons, you are the first team to throw such a huge hissy fit at the teams who Yield-Turned you, then maybe it's you...
-Chewing 12 to 16 packs of bubble gum a day is perfectly normal.

Also, my goodness. Honey looks like she's dead on her feet. Poor girl...

I was about to ask about the Roadblock location. It does LOOK like the TAR20 place. What confuses me is that Meitar & Adi got their hitchhiking vehicle near a sign that says "Coral Kingdom" and then headed TO the Roadblock spot. Anyone got any insight?

Here's who I got for performing the Roadblocks (Let me know if anything is wrong): Regev, Omer, Tohar, Anne, Daniel, Yossi, Mor Silva, Yonatan, Adi, Avivit.

-You probably shouldn't do a victory dance while standing barefoot on sharp rocks (Nimrod...)
-If after five seasons, you are the first team to throw such a huge hissy fit at the teams who Yield-Turned you, then maybe it's you...

Here's who I got for performing the Roadblocks (Let me know if anything is wrong): Regev, Omer, Tohar, Anne, Daniel, Yossi, Mor Silva, Yonatan, Adi, Avivit.

Don't know how you forget about the sharp rocks you are literally standing on.

Regev & Helen's complaining about teams targeting them has become a bit much. From what I can tell it even extended to the sweet potato task. In nearly every episode, they've maintained a position in the top 3. They're objectively a strong team, so they're going to be a perpetual target.

Those are the people I got as well.

Here's my thoughts about the location of the Roadblock.


I was about to ask about the Roadblock location. It does LOOK like the TAR20 place. What confuses me is that Meitar & Adi got their hitchhiking vehicle near a sign that says "Coral Kingdom" and then headed TO the Roadblock spot. Anyone got any insight?


Much like the fruit stand in the previous episode, I think some scenes were aired out of order. Adi & Meitar went to the U-Turn reveal board here: https://www.google.com/maps/@21.286501,-157.6730467,3a,68y,131.88h,85.93t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sEbfBCvQV4XOeBS3xcL-QGA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

The episode then shows Adi & Meitar walking to their cab and then cuts to them standing outside Coral Kingdom here:
https://www.google.com/maps/@21.5067708,-157.8558525,3a,75y,255.26h,75.4t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sWpH1vVziRChgK5PtqB8ucQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

While trying to get a ride, they show their clue to a local (but we never hear the location they showed), and they are told that their location is far away.

Here's what I think. I think the show wanted a better explanation for why Anne & Yarden passed Adi & Meitar to the Roadblock. So, they showed the scene of them trying to find a cab. However, what I think happened is that while Adi performed the Roadblock their cab left, so they needed a new ride to Papahana Kualoa. Papahana Kualoa is 8 miles away from Coral Kingdom, so the local was probably telling them it was a far walk. I don't think that Adi& Meitar were going to the Roadblock from Coral Kingdom but rather to the sweet potato task.

Now to compare the flagged entrance to the Coral Kingdom Gate.

https://www.google.com/maps/@21.507305,-157.8557326,3a,75y,182.05h,90.28t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sFtLl0SnD3LUzS50RnfTgXA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

Across the street from the flagged gate on the show are similar mailboxes. The street lights are in a similar position. There are round log-like objects in both images. The pedestrian crossing sign also is in the same spot. 

Now I give myself the impossible task of matching hills.

In both pictures from Hamerotz and TAR 20, there is a straight line of trees to the top of the hill and a small cluster of trees behind the building.

Thought the Flyboard was going to be the first Roadblock since in the preview it looked like only one person was involved.

A team whining about being Yielded/U-Turned - where have we heard this before? ;) Take it as a compliment!

Surprised no one asked a local to take a picture of their backs so they could see the map themselves (unless that was prohibited).

Glad that the Hawaiian shirt task actually involved some attention to detail and wasn't just a needle-in-a-haystack task that Hamerotz likes to do.

Don't know if the dab on the mat by the third place team was necessary.

Regev & Helen get U-Turned and still finish in second place. They really should not be surprised if they become perpetual targets. However, I wonder if Daniel & Eliyahu will get more attention after back-to-back first place finishes.

Despite foreshadowing the next country (Nimrod and Yonatan used TicTac boxes as maracas to sing La Cucaracha), Nimrod & Yonatan will not be going there.

That was previewed. But yeah, BourkieBoy :) GB for one prefers to learn the next destination for himself. I myself forgot that with the leg before.

I am sorry for spoiling everybody. On Leg 5 and over, no spoilers.

My excuse is I saw Maanca do it beforehand, so I thought it was OK.

Sorry everyone!  :)

I must say, I thought the temporary tattoo task was brilliant! Other TAR's need more creativity like this!

The Mexican Hat Dance song is going to be stuck in my head all week. Thanks HaMerotz LaMillion.

Don't know why Honey thought that they were going to Brazil when the clue said MEXICO City.

Neta, Guatemala is a country not food.

If there is one thing I really hate about modern TAR, it's two simple words.

"Marked. Taxi."

By the way, I'm like 90% sure the lasso task was actually a Face Off and not just an ARI. You can clearly see multiple times that there's two setups and both have a rope connecting to a single clue. Furthermore, the last team to get the clue (M&M) walked up to get the clue without having their harness attached, unlike every other team before them.

The probably did this because viewers might think it's unfair to force M&M to the back of the pack, simply because she couldn't do the task fast enough with her injured finger. But, hey, that's what happens in the race. Bad luck strikes again. No need to censor things like this...

Anyone know what street the U-Turn reveal board was located on? It looked like a residential street not far from Xochimilco Park where the Detour took place.
