For the people that speak Vietnamese, what was the logic for saving the team?

A strategy is that if two or more teams form an alliance and decide to finish the leg at the same time, the teams behind them will start 10 minutes / 15 minutes / 20 minutes after the alliance in the next leg because of the five minute rule.

And we will have a North Korean leg this season:

Thanks for the answers.

Absolutely shocking that the rumor turned out to be true. Very interested to see this leg. :o

Vietnam only does one country a season, so are they not going to
Show content
Thailand
? Or was that maybe a ruse to keep this a surprise?

That was from a random editor on Wikipedia with no citation. It wasn't a ruse.

My Linh (blue team) is absolutely getting blasted on social media for doing nothing on the fast forward and most of the season so far.

What about Hoang Hanh? She did NO Roadblocks. The only one she selected to do, she swapped with her partner anyway. This hasn't happened since Tian & Jaree...

IIRC, that weird meeting between Trump and Kim Jong-un took place in Vietnam, didn't it? Maybe Kim saw the show on TV while he was there and paid them like a million dollars to come play in his backyard.

Sorry, G.B. lol. I know you don't like being spoiled on future locations, but this is one that naturally merited some discussion

So I can't even imagine how the logistics work for a North Korean Leg. Will every team have a government escort the entire time? I doubt teams are gonna be running around places like they usually do.

 :idgit :lol:

But hey, all the teams got out of North Korea and back to Vietnam safely, so I guess everything was alright.

Eh, I'll allow it. Your punishment shall be only four years in purgatory instead of the usual five.  (Lightning flashes somewhere in the distance)

In other news, I went over to Pyongyang on Google Maps to scope out the area before they (presumably) head there...There's some WEIRD stuff on that map. Somebody's been putting a whole bunch of fake stuff on there and somehow it's sticking around and not caught by google. There's a Burger King, a KFC, a bunch of restaurants named after Pokemon, Thanos Cafe, the "Fu Kin Duck"...

The last leg was way better than the previous one for the tasks which felt more important to me than whether the teams were all together (which was because the tasks weren't judged that hard or were relatively easy).  I'd no idea there was a salvage pass but I identified there was a fast forward, and it wasn't that easy to get either so that was worthwhile too.  The tasks on water (except the fast forward which was ok) are still arranged/filmed quite boringly, but once that was over it was a very good leg.

At least TARVN visit another countries, I'm very disappointed when I know TAR Canada doesn't have any international leg this season!

Did viewers complain about teams riding ostriches, otherwise why was that aspect of the Detour completely cut?

Yeah, they really made a point to avoid (or crop out) the ostriches. I assumed it was so people wouldn't get upset.

It was an okay Leg. The Road Block was good. The Detour was okay. And the last task in the tunnel was fun.

Also, what was the message scrolling at the bottom of the screen during the episode?

The message was, we are using infrared cameras to show you inside the tunnel.

Episode was ok. Should have had the detour and u-turn before the roadblock.

Single u-turns can  be a simple elimination which is why they were taken out of the US version.  The tasks were good, I like the idea of being in the dark like on some BB tasks, but felt sorry for the unsuspecting animals.

Did the host mention a penalty for Grey team at the end, for violating the traffic laws earlier? I heard her say mười lăm phút.

Yes. That is the penalty for the traffic law violation.
(I think it should be 30 minutes, but I think the rules are more lenient this season).
And it seems like we are having an alliance of Brown, Pink, Orange, and Blue teams. When Blue team arrived at the pit stop, we can see the motorbike of Brown team in the parking lot. Maybe the alliance decided to check in together, but the producers did not allow them to do so (or the Yellow team suddenly arrived and messed up the plan of the original plan of the alliance).
It is revealed that there is also another "selling stuffs" task that is all cut.

It looked like some teams were helping each other in the blind task which resulted in it being even easier than it should have been and reducing the drama.
