 *Several of the teams were not quite dressed appropriately to handle the heat or the cultural requirements, so it will be interesting to see what they do (there was a goth team and the guy was wearing white face paint!).

Newbie tarrules00 posts at sucks:
*i was IMing the other night with a friend who actually WORKS at LAX airport, she was there when the Amazing Race teams passed through and she got a clear look at all of the teams from very close proximity.
*she said that most of the teams were "standard" (yawn) Amazing Race teams - the dating couples, MACTORS, etc,but the team that struck her eye the most, by far, was a team consisting of two GOTH girls . she got a great look at them and said they were absolutely beautiful, but not in the standard "mactor" kind of way!

Amsterdam, Netherlands July 10th
Two blogs mention seeing Amazing Race teams.
First blog:
*We think we saw some participants from the Amazing Race running through town with a cameraman and sound guy following close behind.
Next Blog:
*I saw to 3 pairs that were competing in my reality favorite show “the amazing race”

Burkina Faso, West Africa July 13th


This blog entry confirms Paris to Burkina Faso on July 13th

*Our biggest news of interest is that it appears that the Amazing Race teams and crew were on our plane from Paris to Burkina.
Also, the SIM missionary from Ouaga who met us at the airport was definitely on camera giving directions to a team (Tim? & Don) who we had met and helped on the plane. 
*One of the contestants and his father were from Chicago and they sat across the aisle from us, so we got to talk to them a little bit
*There was at least one team that was “goth.”They had either dyed their hair pink or were wearing a wig.
 *Several of the teams were not quite dressed appropriately to handle the heat or the cultural requirements, so it will be interesting to see what they do (there was a goth team and the guy was wearing white face paint!).
*there were the girls who were wearing tight warm-up pants…very shocking to the conservative Burkinabe culture where women wear skirts and dresses that go below the knee in public.

Okay, I have a bit more info on the teams.
*There were probably 6 to 7 teams seen.
*They came in a group of 3 or so, then one, then the rest.
*There were at least one F/F team. And at least one M/F team who were close in age so could have been boyfriend/girlfriend or brother/sister, etc. That team was in the middle of the pack.

Just one photo in the album; a different part of Dubrovnik, but also a different date.
*The Amazing Race was filming while we were there in Dubrovnik!! We saw some camera men, but no teams.
*We were really excited anyway. We also talked to some people from England who didn't know what the show was, but told us they had seen two couples in row boats being videotaped.
*They weren't sure, but thought one couple (team) seemed to be doing well and the other (who they thought was male-female) was having a lot of difficulty.

Ok now some NEWS for A Race!! Yah...I actually have something to contribute....

Suppossedly Yao Man was contacted by ARace to participate with his daughter (the older one) in the next ARace (which will be a family edition - but only with two people teams - think sisters/brothers and parent/older son and daughter groups)

However, the daughter chickened out at the last second and since the younger daughter wasn't old enough (16) for this season they turned Lynn down. (Lynn, "I turn people down Yao...they don't turn me down...")

But...that is the info I have thus far...we shall see if it holds true!!

since the younger daughter wasn't old enough (16) for this season they turned Lynn down.

Does this mean the you can be 16 to go on this season or the daughter was 16 and that was to young?
