    According to the pre-season poll, 1 person chose Joychenna, 5 people went with Romber, and 7 went with RKelly, so 12 penalties total.

    Cdru (me), Chaos, CoriBright, David Rymanowicz, JeffreyTaylor, John_Walsh, Mark Holtz, Mwgiii and Sorahl all have already been knocked out by the bonus. This leaves bgilmore, charlz092270, dishsmurf, finniganps, heathadiesel, Jonathan Nolan, Majikmarker, Markdl, Marvin, Mattoshag, Pgski, and Tusk with having potential votes.

    Heathadiesel is the only person that registered after the poll closing, so I don't think she has a vote. Charlz092270 and Jonathan Nolan don't appear to have accounts as those names, so I can't tell if they got in on the pole or not. I'd be surprised if Jonathan did joining the contest half way through. Charlz092270 is a toss up...it could go either way but I'd lean towards not voting. Dishsmurf and pgski started late, but still could have participated in the poll as they were DBSTalk members long before the poll opened.

    So that leaves bgilmore, capmeister, finniganps, majikmarker, markdl, Marvin, mattoshag, and tusk that definitely have a bonus or penalty coming to them tonight unless Danny missed awarding them a non participation penalty in leg 1.

    Danny, setting up my spreadsheet I noticed that Q18 for both legs has a different scoring formula then what the other yields have.

    Its a typo. The yields will all be scored so you lose 2 days.

    Does the double detour points for the final leg include the bonus points for the lesser chosen route, or does the -1,1,2,3,4 values just double to -2,2,4,6,8?

    -2, 2, 4, 6 8 with the normal bonus tacked on.

    Also, what method (source) are you using for your distance measurements for the bonus? And does the days lost/gained get rounded up/down to the nearest whole day?

    I'm using mapquest and plugging in each city and using the travel distance generated. I'll round up to the next whole number.

    Alright, how the bloody hell did heathadeisel answer both legs in just over 2 minutes each!?! That's unfreaking believable... I couldn't even read that many questions in 2 minutes, much less than do any searching for detour questions...sheesh!

    Speaking of that, is that going to be scored after EVERYTHING else, or before the yields, or where?

    FYI: Here is the preliminary answers for the questions based on notes I took on my first viewing. Some of the answers are somewhat judgemental. For instance I put Ron and Rob as counting money because both were shown with the money in their hand and neating up the pile and folding it away. Also Amber was shown sitting down by the window, but later it appeared she was in the middle. However since she sat down the first time I'm counting it. I'll give folks the chance to argue any of the decisions below before making final judgement.

    11 1 Which team finishes this leg in first place? Rob/Amber Ron/Kelly Uchenna/Joyce No pitstop/teams tied No pitstop/impossible to tell
    11 2 Which team finishes this leg in last place? Rob/Amber Ron/Kelly Uchenna/Joyce No pitstop/teams tied No pitstop/impossible to tell
    11 3 Which team gets their detour clue first? Rob/Amber Ron/Kelly Uchenna/Joyce No detour
    11 4 Which team is shown getting their roadblock clue first? Rob/Amber Ron/Kelly Uchenna/Joyce No roadblock
    11 5 Which team takes the less traveled detour route for this leg? Rob/Amber Ron/Kelly Uchenna/Joyce All the same way No detour
    11 6 Which team benefits from the final non-elination? Rob/Amber Ron/Kelly Uchenna/Joyce No pitstop/no elim Elim
    11 7 Which team takes a penalty of some fashion this leg for failing to complete a task? Rob/Amber Ron/Kelly Uchenna/Joyce No penalties

    ----

    And congrats to Mwgiii. With one of the largest Fast Forward jumps, my initial calculations have you leaping from last to first place (valued at 62 days) to end Leg 11. FYI: The fastforward was located on a post bemoaning the marriage of Caroline Corr. ;)

    The question will be can you hold onto that lead going into Leg 12.

    Mark's successful pick of Uchenna and Joyce to win it in the preliminary poll also puts him in close competition, but doesn't give him enough points to lock it away.

    I think whatever effected your DVR a few weeks ago Danny got to mine as well. Mine hiccuped about 3/4 through the 2 hours and erased the beginning of the show. I'll have to download the episode but my answers that noted were different on a few.

    The one I know for sure was there was 3 bunch points in the first leg: airport in London, limbo beach (roadblock), raft beach (detour). It doesn't change anything though as people chose a max of 2.

    I wouldn't see the raft or the limbo points as bunch points, because there's nothing keeping people there. That they were all there at the same time was only because that's how quickly they raced. Nothing kept them there other than doing their tasks--they did them all at the same time. I would consider a bunch point a point at which they cannot continue on with the race or their tasks because of the scheduling of a service/place they must use/visit and therefore all team are idle.

    If the definition of a bunch point is yours, then I completely misunderstood what a bunch point was. :(

    I had the same argument (post 55) with Danny during the final episode last season. A "bunch point" is just a point in the race were all three teams are at the same physical location, not necessarily at the same stage or being held back by something.
