    Just read an interview with the Globetrotters. Flight Time says this (as to why HE didn't do the challenge):
    "We had a plan going into the race that we would each do six of the road blocks. I had kept notes from the race because we thought the last challenge would be a memory thing. So we had each done 5 road blocks and I was planning to do the last one so he had to do this one. But there are no regrets."​

    Further, Big Easy says:
    "If you watched, you saw I had the right word written on my piece of paper, but with so much going on and the telephones ringing and just being exhausted, I dropped the ball."​

    The whole interview can be found here:

    You know, If I were Big Easy and I had just been screwed by the brother in that way I'm pretty sure I wouldn't trust that him telling me the first letter is "F" was true...I'm just saying.

    No, both Phil in his narration and the instructions said -180 C. You can hear Phil in this clip:

    Yes, that's what I said.

    My guess is that someone on the Amazing Race just made a typo.

    I wondered that, too. But were most of the combos he wrote down starting with an "F"?

    Yeah I was kind of surprised that he didn't at least express doubt about that.

    Yeah I noticed that right away. "You are the third team to arrive", instead of "You are team number 3". I do think there was a penalty of some sort but since it didn't affect the outcome it was edited out.

    Because they hit warmer air when they came out? I'm sure they were shivering when they were inside!

    There was one point where they showed the digital readout above the door of the cryo room, and it said -134, IIRC.

    That's a great interview.

    I like that Flight Time said that their motto was "patience and kindness" and it showed at how considerate and understanding he was to his teammate. They were so much fun to watch, and I'm sad they suffered the "fourth place curse" of previous TAR favorites.

    It's interesting that they seem to get along so well with the brothers when the editing shows a lot of hostility there. They like Sam and Dan more than most viewers I think.

    I'm pretty sure they had to warm up using exercise bikes, as Cheyne looked like he was getting off one when they handed them the clue.

    I dont believe for a second that they actually stood in -200 degree temperatures. Humen skin would freeze on contact with that much cold. Up north when it gets to be about -40 degrees people start to talk about their eyeballs freezing.

    According to the web site for Kryocentrum, their "Polarium" is chilled to between -110C and -160C. That's -166F to -265F

    There a long string of precautions: masks, gloves, shoes, ear covering. All clothing of cotton or wool. Completely dry skin, especially in folds. Women who are menstruating may be prevented from entering. Doors are self-opening, so no touching of anything. They also threaten a 5000 Czech Koruna fine ( ~$290) for not following the instructions of the operator.

    I've read several of the interviews, and while I like their attitude, I simply can't understand their defense of the decision to take the penalty. It's like they still don't understand the fact that there were a finite number of options and that had he been methodical, he would have finished in well under four hours. Either they don't understand it, or they're simply deluding themselves to keep from being so pissed at each other for losing a chance at $1 million.

    I'm with ya.

    They complained about like how I'd complain in 30 degree weather. And that's with me wearing clothes.

    The way they all waltzed out of there I really don't think it was very cold.

    I must have missed something.

    What did the ass-brothers do to screw the Trotters?

    They agreed to work together in the "FRANZ" roadblock and share their guesses so that when one got it right, the other would know what the correct word was. However, when the brother actually got the right word, he reneged on that deal and left without telling Big Easy the answer. All he would tell him was that it started with "F."

    Wow. Everything I was going to say has already been said. Saved me a lot of typing. :p

    I'm not rooting for anyone at this point, because I don't really like any of the teams. That's the first time that's happened.
