    Currently grading the show. Unfortunately I have about a 1 minute dead spot where I lost satellite and didn't see when Meredith/Gretchen pulled open the roadblock clue.

    I then see Gretchen then walking past all the boxes and fretting because she can't find it (try opening a few).

    If you can let me know what was said there I appreciate it. If it turns out I'm getting differing opinions, I'll need to download the show before continuing.

    ---

    Answers to Q1 (1st) and Q2 (Last) will be based on who reaches the mat first for this episode. Thus Q1 is Rob/Amber. Q2 will likely be determined at the start of next week's episode, so the answers won't be available till then, but I'd be extremely surprised if it wasn't Meredith/Gretchen.

    Initial clue openers were: Rob, Ron (who handed it immediately to Kelly), Joyce, Lynn, Meredith

    Roadblock decision makers: Kelly, Amber, Uchenna, Alex (said "Ok" to a request by Lynn which was however in the form of a suggestion/question) and I'm not certain yet on M/G.

    I have 5010.5 miles for distance Phil says teams must travel (5000 to India, then 3,3,3,1.5)

    IIRC, it wasn't as clear cut as the other teams, but I would have attributed it to Meredith. He was the only one that said anything and Gretchen didn't agree or disagree, she just told him to hold the clue. I can get the actual transcript tonight if no one posts it by then.

    I think we're waiting for results of leg 8b, since last week's show was "To Be Continued..."

    They haven't been posted as some of it is yet to be known. We are waiting to see who comes in last to the non-pitstop. Then the prize question can officially be answered as well. We are also still waiting on the official determination as to the correct answers on the detour and if so many people really did go the no detour route. I think Danny is treating the two halves of the episode as essentially seperate legs, although I may be wrong.

    Tentatively, presuming R/A got first (known), M/G come in last (likely, but not known), who opened up the clue (Rob, Ron, Joyce, Lynn, Meredith), who decided the roadblock member (Kelly, Amber, Uchenna, Alex, and Meredith (???) ), 5010.5 miles traveled for the yield question, no pitstop this leg, I got the below results. I counted the 1 answer to D1 correct, the 4 answers to D2 all incorrect (see discussion above a few posts), and the rest of the non-responses as No Detour (but may change...see disclaimer towards the top of thread). I also counted the "No" answers to the trip question as correct, but there were two "No" options on the entry. I don't know which was which.

    First column is cumulative scores, 2nd column is rank. Results mean nothing as they are unofficial...only Danny's score really counts, but it gives you an idea were things might be at.

    Scores for last week are dependent upon this week's answers, so I haven't really graded them yet. I'll post cumulative scores for both episodes after tuesdays show.

    As far as scoring goes, I'm treating both episodes as separate legs, so in the Leg 8 questions the finishers will be the people reaching the mat first, even though its not an official pit stop.

    Don't be pointing fingers at me. I stink this season. I need a "trifecta" or a fast forward to even get a chance. We have 5 more legs to go here and I'm in 7th place, 22 some odd days out of the lead. I have no bonus, while several of the people ahead of me still do. I need all the luck I can get just to get the $50 gift certificate (which is actually what I'm going for...a $200 GC is not directly worth anything to me [although I'll still take it if I win]). If you want either of the prizes, you'd be better off yielding someone in the lead now (coughMarkdlcough)

    The actual questions off the top of my head were:
    Q1: Who comes in first +1 if wrong, -1 if right
    Q2: Who comes in last +1 if wrong, -1 if right
    Q3: Who opens the initial clue +1 for each incorrect or missing response
    Q4: Who is the decision maker for the roadblock +1 for each incorrect or missing response
    Q5: Who many miles does Phil say they travel +1 for all responses except the closes, who gets -1 plus the chance to yield 1 day any player(s).
    Q6: What does 1st place team win (trip, nothing etc) +1 if wrong, -1 if right
    D1: What was the name of the pitstops in prior seasons/episodes of TAR that visited India
    D2: What teams were ELIMINATED in prior seasons/episodes that visited India?
