Leg 7 – “She just called me the devil!”

TARPHDM13

It’s the 7th Leg of the Race and teams must figure out how to get themselves to Lisbon, Portugal!

Teams will be booking their own flights, but will somehow only be able to find two possibilities: a direct TAP-Portugal flight arriving in Lisbon at 8:50pm and a Lufthansa flight via Frankfurt arriving at 10:45pm.

TARPHDM13

Once in Lisbon, teams must “Find the westernmost point of continental Europe.” And that will be Cabo da Roca.

TARPHDM13

Here teams will find a Yield, if activated. They must check in before opening their next clue.

TARPHDM13

That clue tells teams to rappel down the side of the cliff and search the coastline for the next clue. BUT! HOURS OF OPERATION! Teams won’t be able to rappel until 8am. But they can take numbers to ensure their order.

TARPHDM13

Next morning, after teams have found their clue, they must make their way to the iconic Torre de Belem where they will find the Road Block: Who can stand the heat and eat?

TARPHDM13

For this Road Block, teams must make their way on foot to Portugal’s oldest pastry shop Pasteis de Belem.

TARPHDM13

Here they will prepare tins of the famous pasteis de nata to be baked. Once placed in the oven, teams will remove a tray of fresh pasteis and eat until they find one with a small Race flag baked into the treat. They can exchange the flag for their next clue.

TARPHDM13

This Road Block is also the Trigger Point for this Leg. If at least one team is able to find the Race flag within their first five eaten pasteis, the U-Turn or Yield will be activated on the next Leg.

TARPHDM13

After the Road Block, teams can head to Estadio da Luz where they will find a Double Road Block! Get In or Keep It Out.

TARPHDM13

Portugal loves their soccer. For this Double Road Block, teams will face off against pros by performing simple soccer moves. The team member who chooses to “Get In” must score a goal against a professional goalie. The team member who chooses to “Keep It Out” must defend the goal and block a penalty kick from a professional in order to receive their next clue.

TARPHDM13

Teams must now search Rua de Santa Justa for their next clue. They must figure out that their clue awaits them atop the Santa Justa lift.

And that clue reveals the Detour: Devilish or Dramatic.

TARPHDM13

In Devilish, teams will take an order from a customer wanting to order a traditional Careto costume for the annual carnival in the city of Podence. Teams must finish sewing and painting a pair of careto costumes. They must then put on the costumes and make their way on foot through the cobbled streets of Lisbon to Rossio Square to receive their next clue.

TARPHDM13

In Dramatic, teams must head directly to Rossio Square and learn how to play Portuguese guitar and a traditional Fado tune. Once both team members are able to master the melancholic tune, they will receive the next clue.

TARPHDM13

And that clue points teams to make their way on foot to Praca do Comercio, the Pit Stop for this Leg of the Race.

The first team to check in here will win P200,000 courtesy of Shell V-Power Nitro+.

TARPHDM13

The last team to check in here WILL be eliminated.

“Director’s” Commentary

Portugal has definitely been on my TARPHDME list for a while now. And thankfully, it was able to fit into this season’s route.

The first part of the Leg is definitely recycled from TAR3. But I mean come on, how can we resist the opportunity for those 4K UHD drone shots at Cabo da Roca right? It also allows for the overnight HOURS OF OPERATION. Good spot for a Yield also since teams will be taking numbers to determine order of a linear, first come, first served task.

TARAu3 had its Hours of Operation at Torre de Belem, but it should be a good location for next day. Especially to have teams walk to the Road Block location.

The Road Block is a combination of two typical TAR tasks. But TARPHDME hasn’t had many eating tasks lately. So this would be a good opportunity for one. Perfect for the Trigger Point as well.

I needed an extra task this Leg, so soccer is an easy go-to. Though it definitely fits in Portugal.

The Detour should be very fun and hopefully the most frustrating for the teams. Depending on how each task is designed, both Detours have the possibility of tripping up teams since both can have very specific intricacies. That attention to detail and learning an instrument are definitely great for promoting drama and competition.

Finally, making their way on foot to the Pit Stop is a good way to exhaust the teams even more and maybe even add more drama to the finish.

Overall, a pretty solid Leg.
