Hello Ching. How are you?

Well, this is my two-pennies-worth. The car is in a park mode. Mai and Oliver could have been having a rest or a nap while they are waiting for hours of operation.

I observed in the past episodes of TAR that when a team sleep in their cars, the cameramen and audiomen go to their own cars where they have to sleep also. This gives the two racers a chance to occupy the front seats where they can lie by reclining the seats.

But I don't know if this is really an elimination. I am more convinced of a NEL. Probably TARA just wanted to be different. The show might have been introducing a new twist.

Remember this post?



It looks like they're not going yet to Hong Kong as expected. What is the possiblity they go to Osaka, Japan?

I remember Avalnche discussing about the timeline before? Very Happy

Oh, yes Banzai. Just watch Leg 4 again. They left Hue at 2 am of 26 May 2008 after a 12-hour mandatory rest period. Obviously, they reached Taiwan in the evening at around 9pm and the whole leg happened in the night. I think Ida and Tania checked in at around 4 am of 27th May 2008.

So, deducting the 12-hour mandatory rest period, Leg 5 starts approximately at 4 pm of 27 May 2008. This gives them 42 hours or 2 days in time for their sighting in Hong Kong around 7pm of 29th May 2008.

So there is enough time for them to go to Osaka.

Good job, Banzai, Jon and the rest.

Okay, maybe they will have some task in Taiwan before they will fly to Osaka, Japan. And the pitstop is in Osaka.

But what is puzzling me is Allan who's knocking on the car? The question is if that place where Mai Oliver are supposed to have parked their car is Japan or Taiwan?

I also don't know if they really go to Japan or not. The past previews, AXN is telling us the obvious. Have you observed that?

When they went to Hue, they showed us footages of buses and they took the buses indeed. Last leg, they showed us Kapil and Niroo quitting and they were eliminated though they didn'te really quit.

BTW, Kapil said the key thingy was not really their main disappointment last leg but the crazy traffic in Taiwan ( that's his term). This is another editing manipulation by the show.

Re: Episode 5 of TARA 3 -Spoilers and Speculations

Post by JonL0ver on Sun 05 Oct 2008, 4:55 am

Like what I did last week, I checked Allan Wu's blog once more. We were able to find out the hotel in Hue where the racers stayed because of Allan's pictures. Not only that, we were able to tell also the first team was released at around 2 am of probably 26th May 2008

I speculated in my earlier post that they reached Taiwan in the evening of 26th May and the first team checked in around 4am of 27th May.

Something is confusing me. In Allan's blog, he mentioned that they had 15 hours rest in Taiwan.

And with this next pit stop lasting over fifteen hours, I was definitely going to need every single minute of our short rest before our call time. - Allan Wu


SOURCE: http://www.alivenotdead.com/allanwu/

So if they had 15 hours in Taiwan for a rest from around 4 am of 27th May, the teams should have been released by around 7 pm of 27th May.

This is what's confusing me now. In Allan's blog, the date when the pictures were taken is telling us something else.

In this picture, the time is 1:12 AM of 28 May 2008.



See, they have been waiting for the teams to arrive since 10:30 PM of 27 May 2008




Here, Allan roamed around Taipei to tape his spiels. He was in Taiwan at around 8:20 AM of 27th May 2008.




Does this mean we are ahead of one day with our timetable?

So the teams had a 24-hour mandatory rest period and Hue! hola3

Instead of 2am of 26th May, the first team (Henry and Bernie) was released at 2 am of 27th May 2008

This means the racers reached Taiwan in the evening of 27th May and checked in at around 4 am of 28th May.

SO, they are released by the afternoon of 28th May 2008 and reached Hong Kong by the evening of 29th May 2008.

This eliminates the possibility of a Japan leg. Now, with this explanation, I will say, they do task first in Taiwan and then they continue to Hong Kong. hola12 hahaha

It makes sense JonLover. (Oliver is a half-French too like you, have you had the chance to speak to him?)

Yes, it make sense. I haven't watch Season 1 yet but as per my recollection of Season 2, Allan Wu came out to the picture when it was a TBC. Did this happen also in Season 1?

If the dates and time in the pictures of Allan are not deceiving us then your explanation says it all. But how sure are we, those dates are for real?

So if it's a TBC, Allan handed the clue to the racers. So all the teams have to wait Allan to knock on their cars?

Okay, so that is the reason Allan was wearing a trench coat to hide the clues?? Shocked affraid

Exactly Avalanche. That's actually what I have been thinking. I thought you typed French coat. LOL. ( Yes, I haven't had the chance yet but I will try)

This is what gonna happens. This is just my two cents worth.

After some tasks in Taiwan, the racers will be directed to a certain place where they have to wait for someone who will give them the clue. Then while the racers are waiting, this is the time now for Allan to come out to the scene and knock on their cars.

Of course, the racers will be surprised to see Allan Wu but to their relief, Allan hands them down the clue that would tell them to fly to Hong Kong. Laughing

Okay, this happened already in TAR. Is it TAR 6 or TAR 7? Remember, the teams were sleeping in a train while they were on their way to a European country? Is it Hungary? Then in the middle of their sleep, a man wearing all white woke them up to give them their next clue. Do you remember that?

Yes, they will do the same in TARA but this time it would be Allan Wu who will hand then down the clue.
LHD

It will happen this time in TARA!!! -14

Post a comment at Allan's website to see what time is it?

I think the photo date is when you upload a picture, it'll log the time and date of the website server.

I search who.is and the server is in Singapore. So it's Singapore time?

Maybe we could share our speculations on who check in first and last. Is this a NEL or TBC? Where would be the leg? Still in Taiwan or Hong Kong or Japan?

Who wants to start the ball rolling?

Re: Episode 5 of TARA 3 -Spoilers and Speculations

Post by JonL0ver on Thu 09 Oct 2008, 5:10 pm

I am pasting here what I have just written in my blog. You can visit it at www.jonlover.blogspot.com




 





That is the host of The Amazing Race Asia 3, American-Chinese Allan Wu, knocking on a car - one of the racers' cars - in a preview for Episode 5. This will be shown in the next few hours.





People are speculating a lot, that includes me, why would Allan knock on a racer's car. There's definitely a catch so what could it be? 





Another question is who are the racers inside the car? Since Allan's job as a host is to eliminate one team after another, TARA fanatics are worried their favorite team should not be inside. The possibility is an elimination.






Well, I have an answer for this but I am not hundred percent sure. While I was playing the preview I noticed an image inside the car. It's very fast so you have to have bionic eyes like that of Superman to see the person. Apparently, I am the only one who can see it. So this is like an apparition to me.





My answer. Mai of Team Thailand is in the car. Here's the screencap.












Do you see Mai? She's inside.But what the hell Mai is doing inside the car? Is she with Oliver? Let's put a picture of Mai beside the image.







Remember this teaser from the newsletter?  It says "It's only getting tougher! Not only are the remaining teams faced with more car troubles, the police gets involved! Challenges in this leg take on the already tired racers, and one team makes a choice with irreversible consequences. Who will pull through victorious and who will be sent home?"



Could that be Mai and Oliver? Did they oversleep inside the car waiting for hours of operation?



But if you have been following our conversation at EnterMyWorld.Heavenforum, you see some of us have different interpretations and this is what I am going to write in this entry as I promised here.



Some questioned me why Mai is sitting in the front passenger's seat beside the driver. That should be the place of the cameraman. The only seat Mai could take is the driver's seat or at the back of the driver.



This is my explanation. The car is in a park mode. Mai and Oliver could have been having a rest or a nap while they are waiting for hours of operation. I observed in the past episodes of TAR that when a team sleep in their cars, the cameramen and sound men go to their own cars where they have to sleep also. This gives the two racers a chance to occupy the front seats where they can lie by reclining the seats.



The knocking on the car by Allan means two things. This episode tonight is either an elimination or a to-be-continued. But I am more convinced this is a TBC episode.



Let's be refreshed by this interview of Henry. “It was relentless ... everything was a blur. It is like nothing you have ever experienced before, really. I have worked in busy kitchens where I had to cook 100 dinners ... but in no way did it compare to what we had to go through in the race. You never really know what is going to happen. Sometimes you think it is the end of the leg and then no, we get another clue and realise the race is still on,” says 43-year-old Henry during a recent interview with The Star.



For me, this is the perfect time for a TBC episode. We only have 6 teams left , one TBC  and 2 non-elimination episodes. So if you put all this while there are only 5 teams on the show, it will be kinda boring.



Because I am convinced this is a TBC, I came up with my speculation and here is what I posted at EnterMyWorld.



After some tasks in Taiwan, the racers will be directed to a certain place where they have to wait for someone who will give them the clue. Then while the racers are waiting, this is the time now for Allan to come out to the scene and knock on their cars.



Of course, the racers will be surprised to see Allan Wu but to their relief, Allan hands them down the clue that would tell them to fly to Hong Kong. Laughing



Okay, this happened already in TAR. Is it TAR 6 or TAR 7? Remember, the teams were sleeping in a train while they were on their way to a European country? Is it Hungary? Then in the middle of their sleep, a man wearing all white woke them up to give them their next clue. Do you remember that?



Yes, they will do the same in TARA but this time it would be Allan Wu who will hand then down the clue


It will happen this time in TARA!!! -14


Let's have some flashbacks on what happened from the pitstop in Hue. The racers were released from the Hue pitstop on 26 May 2008 at 2 am in the morning. They travelled to Taiwan and reached Taipei in the evening of that same day. The whole of Taiwan episode was done at night. You have seen this on last episode and the racers could have checked in at the pitstop at around 2 am - 5 am of 27 May 2008. Deducting the 15-hour mandatory rest period in Taipei, the first team (Ida and Tania) is released at around 3 pm - 7pm of  27 May 2008.



Okay, the racers were seen in Port of Stanley or Blake Pier at Stanley in Hong Kong around 7pm - 8pm on 29 May 2008. A blogger named Ting or Rowena saw Allan doing his spiels in that port beside a female pitstop greeter wearing white. That is the pitstop since since the mat is very visible.



 


This picture is taken from a blogger but RFF encryted their name there but since they're the ones who found the picture in the net through Puddin, we'll keep it that way as a credit to the Puddin's effort.



So from the release of the teams in Taipei at around 3pm of 27th May to the Hong Kong pitstop at around 7pm of 29th May, it gives us exactly two days. We could convert these two days in to two legs.



I hope you are not lost with my explanations. I am trying very hard in English. LOL



Going back, with that assumption, I can say they did another leg once more in Taiwan (7pm of 27 May to noon of 28 May probably) and continued in Hong Kong (noon of 28 May 2008 to 7pm of 29 May). So, this makes Leg 5 a TBC episode shot in Taiwan.



But we will try to see also if there is a possiblity of them going to Osaka, Japan. I mentioned here why I said so.



What if they Hong Kong is shown on this episode? We'll then this is probably a non-elimination and we'll see Tania in Mongkok District here talking to the cameraman.

Re: Episode 5 of TARA 3 -Spoilers and Speculations

Post by JonL0ver on Thu 09 Oct 2008, 5:11 pm

Another entry from my blog www.jonlover.blogspot.com


Sorry folks. I am late in giving you my speculations for Leg 5. I should have written this yesterday as promised but because of a commitment I wasn't able to do it. So, where should I start with? Honestly, there are no spoilers for this leg. There's no enough data or informations from the world wide web but I try to give you our speculations I and the others discussed at our forum, EnterMyWorld.Heavenforum.



There's only one thing I am curious with. Banzai, one of the forum-ers, took notice of a post by NADLAMOK at AXN forum.


16 hours ago, nadlamok says:

for EP. 5
- still in taiwan
- a fast forward is set to appear.
- play a movie challenge. probably a road block.
- coal mining task
- one team get so tired that they took time to sleep instead. this is where allan was shown knocking on one of the cars.
- intense episode with accident, police involvements and screaming matches.

Another forum-er by the nick of  JPIAn_Ako claimed she read about this spoiler from the Philippine Star, A Filipino newspaper. "Actually I have read this "Minor Spoiler" on The Philippine Star newspaper this morning. I'm trying to get the link on the internet so most of you can read it," says JPIAn_Ako.



 Nadlamok is also a member at EnterMyWorld forum but he's not online since yesterday for comments. I would have love to ask him about what he posted. Nadlamok and JPIAn_Ako, if you're reading this, hey, baka gusto niyo mag-comentario. **wink**.



Now, why do I have the feeling Nadlamok could have given us what is exactly happened in this leg? Last night, I recieved my newsletter from AXN with the teaser. If you're a registered member at AXN, you probably have received your copy too and know what I am talking here.



 



Take a look at the caption or teaser just below the banner. It says "It's only getting tougher! Not only are the remaining teams faced with more car troubles, the police gets involved! Challenges in this leg take on the already tired racers, and one team makes a choice with irreversible consequences. Who will pull through victorious and who will be sent home?"







Now, how did Nadlamok (Does your name mean you're a lamok? LOL) know there are policemen getting involved in this leg?







As for the movie thingy, Nadlamok could be right. In the preview at AXN forum we see a footage of Mai and Oliver looking at the Bravia television sets at what looked like an appliance store. We also see Geoff and Tisha arguing inside a mall. A poster identified the mall as Taiwan's SOGO MALL. When I contacted a friend who worked in Taiwan, she confirmed it was indeed Sogo Mall.







So what can we derive from those footage of Mai, Oliver, Geoff and Tisha. The Bravia Store might be located inside the mall. The racers are instructed to proceed there for a challenge but I have a little reservation whether this could be the roadblock or not. This could be just an extra task - a route info.











 These are Oliver and Mai inside a Bravia TV Store. Do you read the name of the brand of the TV just next to Oliver's left ear? It says BRAVIA.



 


These are Geoff and Tisha inside Sogo Mall.  







We'll see later, in just few hours, if Nadlamok has hit the jackpot. And a lot of people are curious when they saw Allan Wu in the preview knocking a car. The question is who are the racers iside the car? Why is Allan knocking? 







Well, we have take in mind that Allan's job is to eliminate a team or to give a clue once in a while in cases of a to-be-continued episodes. I actually saw someone inside the car but before that let's take a look first at the  preview Puddin or Weecama uploaded on youtube. Thanks Puddin.



















The image I saw inside the car is Mai of Oliver and Mai of Team Thailand. I discuss this in another entry.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Just my own speculation~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
After see the JonL0ver Speculations for Leg 5
I have some new Speculations.......

If there is a FF Could it be Mai & Oliver won it??
The Bravia is the FF or A part of FF
They need to watch at the screen to find there next Clue or Something
They won so that they are the first team that Alan to knock the door
and the preview show the first team??

Bravo Heartz1988. You have a point there.

Geoff/Tisha and Mai/Oliver might be competing for the Fast Forward if there is really a Fast Forward.

This is the good part if we all share our thoughts. Heartz, why don't you join me, Banza, Jonlover and TequilaMoon in discussing speculations and spoilers here every week.


Correction: Sorry. I edited this post and I accidentally posted it as a new post. Sorry.

But if it is a TBC the FF is always on the second part/episode.

I personally would like to welcome Anthonyctf here. I am happy to see you and I know your hard work somewhere else.

Admin (Welcome) Buddy.

Heartz1988 and Anthonyctf, you might be right - both of you. The possibility is possible. Hehe. Why not? TARA might be introducing something new which has never been seen in TAR.
