HD! That is all!
Love the HD. If any show needed to be in HD, it's this one. After all, it's one big travel brochure!!
There were at least three other teams that would still be floundering around trying to get the flag puzzle including the Globetrotters if they weren't given the answer.
There's nothing in the rules that says one team can't help another. I just hope when it comes down to the wire, some of them will remember the kindness of others, but somehow I doubt it.
I didn't get the Quantas annogram, but I would have been paying attention to what everybody else was doing and If I saw all of them go up at the same time, I would just bring anything up with me and then just overhear what they were all saying!
Yes they are. There have been "to be continued" legs other seasons. Next week we should settle into the usual routine. As has been discussed for other seasons they have to have bunch ups or "equalizers" to keep the teams close (and to keep viewer interest of course). You have to look at it as 12 mini races as opposed to one long race.
Speaking of him, I noticed that he changed his name. Last time he was "Kynt".
It was one of the globetrotters - Don't know which one.
Well, I guess that 'e' is a better choice than a different vowel...
Sure, that's why you just don't say it at all when a TV camera is in your face.
Every time Kent & Vyxsin are on screen all I do is wonder if they are for real or it's just some weird joke they are playing on the TV audience.
Was I just confused, or did the second team to arrive get a U-Turn extra task thing? That seemed weird to me. Why penalize the second team? And why wouldn't they just wait and not check in and give it to the next team to arrive? Better to be third with no extra task, I think.
While I can see the logic in buddying up to another team but giving them the answer, it's risky because, at the same time, you alienate other teams and they might well be the ones you need help from in the future.
I wonder why several teams all missed the "between". It's not like a single letter. And yet, what, three teams missed it?
I wonder which teams were considered to repeat but were unvailable, uninterested or had status changes that would have affected their participation. I doubt the collection we see in this episode were all first choices.
Interesting that this time the last team ws not eliminated but was instead has to complete both tasks. Basically, this is what happens on a non-elim episode but isn't being identified as such. I wonder if the producers recognized that bumping out a team immeidately was a bit harsh and the first episode should offer a bit of slack. Or if the teams, now experienced, wouldn't participate if there was a first round elimination.
They were the last team to complete the first task (Qantas) which resulted in them receiving the U-turn. It had nothing to do with the timing of their arrival on the mat.
1. Work together is fine, each takes half combine. Be an idiot, pray someone helps, not fine.
2. How hard is it to figure out QANTUS. It the first letter of each freaking word.
3. Between the devil and the deep blue see is a pretty famous expression for being in a quandary.
4. Jet and Cord are acting like idiots so far. Too bad, I like them. Mostly, as long as the cheerleaders or margie and luke lose, I'm fine with any of them.
They got the U-turn because they were the last team to finish the very first task (the Qantas flag). That was stated as the penalty before the race even started. They finished second because of the plane issues and Phil was just reminding them that they still had that u-turn coming up.
They got the U turn because they were the last one to bring in the flag at the start. It just hadn't happened yet in the first half of the 2 show leg, so Phil was reminding them that it was still coming up. Luckily for them the plane thing happened so they came in second even tho they started last.
Whoops--way too slow on that.....
Wait a minute . . . did a team get eliminated last night?
Um...just what do you think the next-to-last word is? "Underwater"? (How easy did you say it was again?)
The first leg isn't over yet. To Be Continued ...
Aaaaah. Sneaky way to have a non-elim without calling it that.
Yes but technically they're still racing on leg #1. Phil needed more camera time I guess on this first leg.
Oh, that U-turn thing makes a lot more sense now! Thanks for clearing that up for me.
