"Last task and passport"
It seems both teams were pretty bad at remembering the countrees they were in. I was wondering whether they were allowed to look in their passports or any other written information?

I thought that too, but then I've had the luxury of following them on a map, discussing it here, etc. They were finishing a grueling month of travel with tons of different stress. After all, they didn't set the itinerary like you would with your own vacation, they just go where the clues say.

Also, you might know some of the flags, but the flags of the smaller countries (Oman, Thailand) are hardly common knowledge.

Finally, I doubt that they could use their passports, but even so, the stamps don't have their flags usually, and it might even take longer to figure out the order. Custom officers don't necessarily put the stamps in order in your passport.

I thought I heard them say in the instructions that while one person had to do it, the other person could give verbal help and that no information other than what they remembered themselves could be used (no notes, etc.)

I don't remember the 'no notes' part. But like to point out that is the evil genius of the Amazing Race. That which is not against the rules is allowed.

With the rush at the end to be first, I am not suprised that no-one thought to look at thier passports - afterall the flags were right in font of them and the race was almost at the end. Thinking clearly at that moment is a hard thing to do.


By the way - is it just me or does anyone else like these 'find where you were' tests at the end of the latest TARs?

Yes, it's a great equalizer.

As long as they keep the test fresh, then I'm all for it. Like the map on TAR8, the flags for TAR9. Those were cool. But it's got to be fresh and not get boring and predictable, like the Car challenge always being F5 or the family visit always at F6 on Survivor.

Keep us on our toes and I'll keep watching!
