Me neither, and I've taken the LAX<->SYD flight on Qantas! However, I did make the connection soon as Phil gave the clue.
I noticed the Globe Trotters had bulkhead seat. I wonder if there is a stipulation that they always get one? Big Easy, at 6'9", probably isn't physically capable of sitting in a regular coach seat. I didn't notice in their season if that was the case or not.
My 5-yr old about Kent: "that ugly lady sounds *almost* like a man when she speaks" LOL
I've taken it too! I made the connection quickly also. Only a few weeks ago, I saw an article or something that mentioned what it stood for.
I'd clean forgotten that he WAS a guy until I started closely listening....does that mean I have the intelligence of a 5-year-old?
I don't remember Jet and Cord being that, uh, dense.
I know a lot of people love them and will be disappointed if they are eliminated first, but it's looking grim. But you never know, sometimes people get a lucky break, maybe some other team will get totally lost or something.
Seriously, was it really that hard to figure out QANTAS from that clue? Color me amazed that so many racers did not have a clue. Pun intended.
Mallory is starting to annoy me even earlier than she did last time. Enough with all the praying to St. Anthony already. If she spent more time racing and less time praying and shrieking, maybe they would do better.
I already like Kent and Vyxsin better because Kent is calling himself Kent now instead of Kynt. I figured he just got tired of saying "no, that's with Y not an E."
Same here. I was thinking they were among the smartest teams last year.
I'm thinking it was just the extra "panic factor" of the first leg of the race.
Now if only she would go back to calling herself "Jennifer"...
Oh, and another thing:
All of these teams are memorable from their previous race except for one: Kris and Amanda -- is that their names? I can't even remember.
I've seen every season (except the family one, where I gave up midway through because it was so awful), and I have NO memory of them whatsoever. None. Is it early onset dementia? All the dating couples that are aspiring actor/models are hard to tell apart. They seem blander than most.
I don't think they would have looked so dense had the other moron teams not been spoon-fed the answer and actually had to go back and figure out themselves like Jet & Cord did. They stuck out because they were alone, but by all rights there should have been several other teams right there next to them.
Plus it sounded like he (Jet?) thought it was some jumble and not just straight up letter decoding.
You are right. Plus, it could be fancy editing that makes it look like Jet (or is it Cord? never did get them straight) was sitting there for a very long time by himself, and maybe it wasn't that long.
Still, it looks like a basic - this symbol stands for this letter - code. Even Mallory, of all people, was able to figure it out on her own. Mallory, who is far from a rocket scientist. It seemed time consuming maybe, but not hard. Other teams gave up quickly because the other teams around them were leaving and they panicked at being left behind . . . but Jet and Cord don't have that excuse.
I don't care what she calls herself, as long as she keeps the pink hair (and the big boobs, but I think that goes without saying).
I keep forgetting to mention that this was the first TAR episode where they've been in a foreign location that I'm familiar with, so I had extra reason to enjoy it -- I went to Sydney, and even took the ferry to Manly, in June 2009.
I also love it when they visit places on TAR that I've been - I was in Manly in 2006. I don't remember Shelly Beach though. I only went to Bondi, which is nowhere near Manly.
Sydney is even more gorgeous than it appeared on the show. Highly recommended.
It's being reshown on Sunday at 8PM ET.
I thought that Jet/Cord didn't realize that the lower bunch of flags that were separated a little were part of the puzzle. He just kept going over the first part because he thought he had a word wrong or something. He was just expecting it to tell him where to go, and had that locked in his brain. Maybe. I love those guys.
I don't have a problem with it being called a pitstop.
They don't want the players to know they're still going to be racing ahead of time.
Otherwise they'd have to start using weasel words like they do with the "you may be eliminated". like "which may or may not be a pitstop".
You mean Saturday at 8 PM...Sunday is the second new episode.
Of course, that could be wrong...the schedule doesn't show TAR as being in HD, and it definitely is this season.
Yes, you're right. It's Saturday.
I wonder why they're rerunning it. The ratings look good, according to the release...
Several of the teams called the first flag a 'triangle', though it was really a diamond-shaped one.
