    Hmm, gonna add in the NEL's seen in TAR Asia Season 1:

    Sandy & Francesca - Leg 1 (they ended up coming in 2nd place in the end)
    Howard & Sahran - Leg 4
    Zabrina & Joe Jer - Leg 7 (they ended up winning it all)
    Mardy & Marsio- Leg 10


    IMO, the NEL on the first leg was certainly one of the things I most liked about the first TARAsia season, as it gave us at least one more episode to get familiarized to all the teams before seeing them start to get eliminated, plus the team that got saved in the first leg ended up being quite likeable in my book.

    And I'm also completely undecided about this whole NEL thing, it sounds good on one side, and bad on another, I'm all jumbled here.

    TAR is my favorite TV show. I also did not like the non-elimination legs. Very odd seeing teams have their stuff taken away, or have to beg for money, or have to finish first, or whatever the catch is every season. Instead of cutting two shows out of the season, I'd prefer to have a couple of those extra long legs that stretch over a couple of episodes. I always liked it when these exhausted teams run up to Phil hoping to hear how they finished and he just looks at them (sometimes gives them the eyebrow) and then just hands them the next clue. That way the season isn't cut short by a couple episodes and the NELs are eliminated.

    I was so looking forward to TAR this fall. It's not starting until January? The past few seasons, they have always had two in one year, right?

    What you may be thinking of is of is the episode in , i believe, Budapest, when Gus and Hera were the only team to choose rowing across the Danube. They crossed okay but were cursed in getting a cab, and lost a footrace to Freddy and Kendra for last place on an elimination leg-if Gus and Hera get a cab easily, F&K are out...

    [QUOTE=MamaC;2486914;]Wow, thanks CG! Guess in each season, at least one team (sometimes two) who ended up in the top 3 were saved by a NEL.

    Karalott, I must have mixed up Freddy and Kendra with Colin and Christie. Oops!

    The NEL is always wonderful when it saves a team I want to see remain. I hate the damn thing when a team I'm not enjoying advances. Having less episodes just sucks giant ostrich eggs. Big BOO to that!

    Freddy and Kendra also got a thirty minute time penalty, and had to wait out a few anxious moments. I think they were both crying.

    can we separate spoiler vs speculation into two separate thread? they are totally two different topics.

    In the group picture on the website, does anyone know what house/place is in the background? It sure looks beautiful.
