    That's not at all the case, trust me. Three teams will quit a task, don't worry about repetitive NELs/TBCs

    Sorry guys - just watched the first episode and it's 3am here, so I won't have a chance to update the pool until tomorrow (unless you want 50 errors in my sleep-deprived state ).

    Sorry to see you out first again Svith. But on the bright side, at least your team got a very good score compared to other first boots from back in past seasons.

    Im not 100% sure, but certainly in recent memory, it is definitely the highest. It's possible that there could be a higher one a long way back...

    You're from New Zealand, amazing_race, no? It's great that I have the most amount of points for a team still alive in the race, although I don't know how much longer they're going to make it...Frown

    Why did Pam/Winnie get points for fastest flight, I thought it only applied if they were first to the destination but they got their third. Or does it mean first to the country?

    Oy vey? Who knows what's going to happen next. Good thing I didn't pick John and Jessica, my first choice. Somehow I diverted myself.

    I was shocked. Part of me is upset that my team got eliminated so early butthey were my third choice and my top two are still in. If there were points for getting eliminated purley because of stubberness I would get the points.

    I'm actually from Australia, but I do enjoy the New Zealand legs more than the Australian ones for the most part!

    It means the first to land within the city that they are supposed to be going to. You are right in that they didn't get to the first Route Info in first place, but they had the fastest flight into Christchurch nonetheless.

    And my first shot at this offically comes to a abrupt and surprising end.


    Good luck to all the remianing players Especially j19000 - Bates & Anthony and amazing_race - Max & Katie. I'll be rooting for Bates/Anthony.


    For future seasons how about giving somthing like 5 points for getting eliminated with an Express Pass.

    getting eliminated with an express pass was the most idiotic move ever on TAR.
