LAX to Ireland July 8th-9th-10th  


WAMgirl posts at Twop's ,LAX, July 8th to Ireland
*We were at LAX this July going on our honeymoon, and we met a team from the upcoming season. The team consisted of a younger guy and his grandfather. They were headed to Ireland and were looking for guidebooks and people to exchange dollars for euros on a one to one ratio.
More from WAMgirl here.

*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  :snicker: . she got a great look at them and said they were absolutely beautiful, but not in the standard "mactor" kind of way!

THE AMAZING RACE, winner of five consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Reality Competition Series, returns for its 12th edition on the CBS Television Network, Sunday, Nov. 4 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).

Could Belize be considered a "new country" as the starting point.  Teams could be flown directly there from various US airports without filming their departures.  Just showing teams arriving individually in Belize to start the race.  Or somewhere else, such as Mexico.  Lots of flights from many US airports direct to Mexico DF.

From the quick look at the promo - not too clear - but it certainly looks like the 11 teams are introduced while riding in similar looking convertible cars.  Back ground looks spanish colonial (Mexico?).  This leads credence to our theory that teams arrive overseas independently and are first introduced in a foreign - read Latin American - city.  If it is Belize the signs would be in English.  If Mexico or Peru, the signs would be in Spanish.  Can anyone read the background better?  Also looks like one of the first tasks has something to do with riding a burro somewhere. In Ireland it looks like teams will be riding bikes built for two.

Let's keep speculation about ep 1 here on this thread.  Move information we have about ep 1 on other threads (vidcaps, etc; location speculation) to this thread.

From what we now see in the promos, it looks like the 11 teams are driven through the streets of LA up to the Playboy Mansion where they meet Phil and get the get go about "The world awaits you, travel safe!"  They then pick up their bags, get the first clue to fly to Shannon Ireland.  Teams proceed to SUVs parked on the drive and proceed to the airport.

Smart move by TPTB!  Filming on the grounds of a private estate means that they did not need to have a filming permit.  But no record of a film permit for filming in the International Terminal at LA is a mystery.  We either were misled, had the dates wrong, or TPTB had a permit already in hand (an open ended permit issued much earlier?)

No G-man! We had no filming permit for the roads--no CHP's involvement.

I did have confirmation of the filming at LAX from LAX Ops.

From what I gather from the promo, the inaugural program for TAR12 will only be one hour.  That means not much time left for the trip to Ireland after all the mandatory team intros and bios. And briefing from Phil and trip to LAX.  Probably means only one task before race to first pit stop (something to do with donkeys?)  We won't be seeing much of Ireland in ep one; so maybe we get more in ep 2 before going on to Amsterdam.

Haven't most ep ones been 90 minutes or two hours in the past?

Has Michael D latched on to one of the dizzy blondes from LA yet?

Sorry, Peach, missed your news about filming permits at LAX when you first posted  back when.

Hope you can get the vidcaps over here, Puddin,so we can keep all the ep one stuff together.  Hey I knew you could.  Tanks.

Wow, looks like I will have to find a castle in Germany big enough for two wenches, now.
