I just start watch TARI recently and I love Georgia. :hearts:


Btw what is the requirement to complete the haystack challenge? ??? Is it exact the same requirement on TAR 20 Azerbaijan FF? I have no idea to figure out the task as I don't understand Israeli.

One team member must unload all of the hay from the truck, while the other must stack them all so that they make a perfect square shape on the ground. It had to be a certain number of haybales long, wide and high.

Episode 15 is up :yess:: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yDpzx8-TLo

Apart from transporting wood in wheelbarrow, racers take part in the physically demanding "Wife-carrying".
Wife carrying (Finnish: eukonkanto or akankanto, Estonian: naisekandmine, Swedish: kärringkånk) is a contest in which male competitors race while each carrying a female teammate. The objective is for the male to carry the female through a special obstacle track in the fastest time http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wife-carrying.



The sport was first introduced at Sonkajärvi, Finland http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sonkaj%C3%A4rvi#Wife_carrying_competition.

Today's episode featured a Detour with disgusting fish and fish guts, mud volleyball from TAR15, and a much better version of pies-in-the-face from TAR14. Teams actually had to throw the pies and try to score a hit on their partner's face, rather than simply smacking it into their face while standing next to them.

NOW THEN

Finnish places are hard to spell. I have no idea where this swamp was located, because I have no idea how its name would be spelled. The best I could get from the host's pronunciation was "Bekananoka Oi". Sounds Hawaiian...

If anyone wants to help find it, remember that teams traveled from Espoo to reach it, then left for Hämeenlinna.

I also don't know where the next destination after the pies is. The host called it "Petalis", and nothing more...

Thanks!

What happened with the U-turn??? I suppose it went unaired, since they already showed the tea task at Tate Modern, but the U-turn vote wasn't showed.

Does it have any relation with Gal passing out in the preview, and the U-turn possibly not affecting the U-turned team? Should we suppose that Gal & Liel are going home this leg? There's also a picture in Gal's Instagram that shows him using crutches, idk.

Very hard to answer with the information available right now. I guess your best bet is to wait for next wednesday's episode.



The task during which Gals falls unconscious seems to be similar to season 2: one racer has to try to remain as still and unimpressed as possible and a racer from a competing team tries to provoke a reaction. The right picture shows Gal on his way down, face substantially paler than before. Maybe a blood pressure related issue ?

Yesterday afternoon, I saw the Amazing Race Israel being filmed outside the Tate Modern on London's Southbank. There was a woman waiting around, who was dressed as a maid and standing by the river with multiple trolleys of tea. Slightly further down, there was a clue box and an all-male team standing by it.

It was located near the tea task, it probably went unaired.

On the picture, you can also see it's a Double U-Turn.

  • I love THE AMAZING RACE!!!
I think they should change the rule about forfeiting in the ducat...like trying to keep the battle going on instead of giving out clue, so they can have more footage. The team who forfeit the challenge can stay with the team who lose the battle at the last ducat, and receive the 15 minutes penalty together.

P.S. It's really unfortunate for this season. Two accidents in this season all happened in ducat challenge.

P.S.2. It's really fun to watch this hold-the-laughter challenge, but they should improve the challenge, such as setting an end/break time, else it'll be very tough for teams to execute.

Maybe a spreadsheet with all accidents this season would be interesting. Accident counter goes up by one e.g when ...

By the way, I find the scene with Daniel and his victim - and the following dialogue between the two - quite funny. Maybe something is wrong with me ...

Actually, ALL THREE Double-Battles this season have involved a team forfeiting. Irit & Sinae did not fight the second-last team because the mother hurt her head. And then, of course, Roni & Yael at the kayaks and now Gal & Liel here.

Previously, only a single team had ever been injured during a Double-Battle, and that's Osnat & Carmit from Season 2. However, as HRG said, the battle continued even after O&C left. It was another team who ended up with the 15-minute penalty. O&C Left alongside this team.

Me too!!! They're not even the strongest team, and are actually one of the nicest (along with Shay & Shani, specially Shani, she is so funny, and also speaks perfect Spanish <3)! I hope Raz & Alexa get eliminated soon, i'm tired of Alexa constantly whining.

LEG 4:

Tom & Uriel: Uriel talked to Ala, but Vova did not like to talk to him and often spoke in his native language, so Uriel had no idea what he was saying.
Alexa & Raz: The two teams had hardly spoken two or three words to one another. Raz initially does not want to, as he thinks they're weaker.
Gal & Liel: They think Vova & Ala are strong, and also connect with them and knew they would be "forgiven"
Shay & Adi: Viewed them as more of a threat than their second choice, Yochi & Linor
Roni & Yael: Choosing them made them feel less guilty, though they didn't feel it was strategic. Also, as no-one had ever voted for them before, they were under the false impression that they would remain anonymous.

LEG 5:

Alexa & Raz: Vova & Ala voted for them on the previous leg.
Gal & Liel: They felt the least connected to them throughout the race, in direct contradiction to their previous reasoning.
Yochi & Linor: They outright state that they do not want them in the race, because they are not relatable or friendly.
Tom & Uriel: They think the two are not unpleasant and cute, nothing can be done about their decision.
Shay & Adi: No reason given.
Roni & Yael: They think the they would be fighting Vova & Ala in the bottom two, so it's "us or them".

LEG 6:

Tom & Uriel: They do not wish to open any new feuds with other teams, and so will continue to vote as such until they cannot any more.
Gal & Liel: No reason given, implying their reason has not changed since the previous leg. Voted for them under a slough of positive comments.
Roni & Yael: Noting that Vova & Ala are always on their tail, and that they are a strong team who would always defeat them in Double-Battles
Alexa & Raz: Vova & Ala voted for them on the previous leg again. Alexa also doesn't feel guilty as they're the only team they have not connected with at all.
Shay & Adi: Chosen over Yochi & Linor, with no reason given.
Yochi & Linor: They are the closest team to them at the back of the pack. (Confusing and incorrect)

LEG 8:

Alexa & Raz: No reason given, "This is the game."
Gal & Liel: No reason given, "Sorry."
Daniel & Meiri: No reason given.
Tom & Uriel: No reason given, but they state that this will be the last time they will vote for them.

Thank you for that!!! So it seems like Vova & Ala are not nice or close to the other teams, but some of the reasons they give are just dumb, for instance Gal & Liel's contradictory statements. At first i thought it was a Group A vs Group B kind of feud, with some exceptions, like Yochi & Linor and now Daniel & Meiri voting against Vova & Ala.

Anyway i hope Vova & Ala stay as long as possible!

It's not an issue of not being nice, but simply not being talkative or engaging, which I think makes it even worse.

Also, we've seen Michal & Ran and Talia & Koby on this forum, I really really hope to see someone from this season show up :D

I believe that the decision whom to vote for is really not social but actually a surviving issue.
Only the first voting is social, thereafter they tend to vote to team that are already "marked".
Every team afraid to be voted and be delayed so they vote for those with the highest chance to be picked by others.
