    I just saw that it's supposed to start 17 minutes late on the East Coast and in the Central time zone.

    Don't wanna know. But, I already know who WINS the leg, courtesy of TAR's overeager sponsor Snapple, who pre-released the bathmat scene. Don't worry, not gonna spoil who's standing there.

    I wonder if the episode will play any/all of the "Phil-as-Snapple-Salesman" stuff! On the leaked clip, the poor guy has to give a 30 second "Snapple is delicious and fantastic, and you should really try it right now racer 1 and racer 2!"

    It just finished here (1 hour early because of the Juno awards).

    Here's what happened:
    at the beginning they were given some tea made of papaya and mango, but what they didn't know was that the tea would later be part of a challenge.
    Then they all go to Kolkata, India. They all get there at the same time and have to wait until the next day (watch for a fun moment as they wait).
    The next morning: the Roadblock. The racers had to be taste tea from a table with hundreds of cups and when they identified the one that they had had in China they'd get the clue. Ron got it very fast. The rest seemed to struggle, but in the end it was a Globetrotter and Luke. Luke had a very difficult time and broke down several times. Once he was the only one there, the locals who were present started cheering him on (that was cute), and when he finally got it they all hugged him and lifted him up (that almost made me cry).
    The detour involved a delivery task and a painting task. Gary and Mallory won the leg, followed by Cowboys, Ron & Chris, Zev&Justin, Kynt&Vyxin, Kisha&Jen, and Globetrotters. When the Globetrotters finished the detour, Margie and Luke had arrived already, so before they left they stopped to give them a hug. I though that was nice.
    Margie and Luke did very well in the detour but were too far behind the rest and were eliminated. Poor Luke was clearly frustrated and felt responsible, he said he never thought he'd in the Amazing Race in a million years and that he really enjoyed it.

    Major moments:
    -When Kisha and Jen got their clue after the roadblock, they had no idea what to do with it. They had to uncap the bottle of tea and read the clue on the bottom of the cap. Instead they decided they needed to go to where the tea is made. It wasn't until much later that they realized their mistake. They didn't lose much time though.
    -At the pit stop, Phil announced that Gary and Mallory had won the leg and their price: you'll be the first people ever to taste the new tea made by the company that provided the tea for the race . Mallory was like "OMG OMG OMG THAT IS SO GREAT", yeah right. Anyway, he then told them what the rest of the price was (including money).
    -Cowboys, Ron&Chris, and Zev&Justin arrive almost together at the mat. Phil announces that they are 2, 3, and 4. Shortly after, Kent&Vyxin arrive too while the other teams were still there. Phil asks one of the cowboys to tell the goth their placement and says "you're team number......4", Phil then questioned his ability to count

    Anyway, enjoy.

    Woah- that was a quick transition to India!

    (I'm worried because Cord talked about sacrifices to be there the cowboys are out this round. And interested to see if Christina's speaking to the tea shop woman and finding out "Papaya Mango" will be an advantage."

    I like tea. But I don't know that I could identify a flavor after trying a whole bunch of them.

    Oh Poor Luke- the table is half empty! At that point, just start downing tea and running up to the front. Man that's gotta suck. I think the "smelling" technique is the best idea.

    You know Snapple has to be ecstatic that Mallory won this leg. Everyone else would probably be all, "okay."

    I am guessing that Snapple will not use the clip of Kent dancing with his can of Snapple.
