Looking at those vidcaps again - there seems to be an awful lot of activity going on in Ireland for just one hour.  Remember all the teams have to be introduced with hometown footage, etc.  Phil has to get them on their way, and they have to get to LAX and then on to Ireland. 

Lots of stuff seems to be going on then in Ireland.  But schedule only gives one hour to ep no. one.

Could it be a TBC?  Wrap up Ireland, and perhaps jaunt over to Isle of Mann or Aran in ep no. 2?  Then on to Amsterdam.

So when can we start predicting order of elimination. We have enough info to say the final 6 for sure. Kate & Pat go out first. Jennifer & Nathan do get past 7th. Lorena & Jason is unkown, im pretty sure they make it to Croatia. There had been a post saying the F/F team were the opposite of Dustin & Kandice so im thinking Marianna & Julia. So Shana & Jennifer go out early as well as Ari & Saella.

Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Holland, Croatia - ALL 100% true. Burkina Faso? Alaska, Japan, Taipen = 100% true!
11th. Kate & Pat
10th. Shana & Jennifer
9th. Ari & Staella
8th. Jennifer & Nathan
7th. Lorena & Jason
6th. Nicholas & Donald
5th. Marianna & Julia
4th. Azaria & Hendekea
3rd. Ronald & Christina
2nd. Rachel & TK
1st. Kynt & Vyxsin

Also if we know where them two seated bikes come from then it would be so much easier to know order of elimination

Ireland.

Also in Ireland:  Donkey with baskets pull, lead, whatever. And riding bikes across high wire with partner on seat below bike. And pit stop by stone wall overlooking green countryside

Watched two long promos last night and the first episode "Donkeys Have Souls" is falling into place.  A lot of activity for one hour, so this may indeed be a TBC.  So far its looks like this:

Teams arrive at the Playboy Mansion in old vintage convertables.  Each team (11) has an into and short bio and a few choice words about how they are in the race to win, etc. etc. etc.  Phil gives them their final instructions, and after saying the traditional words" "the world awaits you, travel safe, go!)  Teams race to their backpacks.  Note that most teams have really caught on about  taking the bare minimum and keeping the backpacks small.  Good example: The Couple in Conflict(Nathan and Jennifer).  Bad example of not learning by experience and carrying much too much: The Gothics (Kynt and Vyxsin).  Teams run to a parked SUV (who is the sponsor this year?) and drive themselves to LAX.

Guess may be that the teams have two options on flights: one on Aer Lingus and another on British Air.  We have takeoffs for both airlines.

Upon arrival in Ireland (Shannon or Dublin?  Or some teams to each?)  Here they pick up a taxi to take them somewheres outside of the city.  Nice rural area, no buildings, no farms, cliffs, and sea.  Also lots of stone walls and dirt trails.

Here we see teams in three different activities:  Leading a donkey with loaded baskets along a dirt trail somewhere.

                                                                   Riding a bicycle built for two along a country trail past stone walls.

At first I thought that all the teams had to do both these tasks, but in one scene we have one coulple on the bike passing another couple  pushing the donkey.  And on the other hand we have the Nathan and Jennifer doing both tasks.

So could this be a Detour? Ride or Lead?   Do Nathan and Jennifer start on one task and switch later to the other?

Finally, all teams seem to have to do a real douzy of a task:  Ride a bike on a high wire stretched over an ocean inlet while their partner is suspended on a seat hanging below!!!!!

The final pit stop seems to be on a terrace or some such area surrounded by a low stone wall with the green countryside stretching out to a distant hill.  We have shots of four teams seemingly happy to have arrived at the pit stop - jumping with joy and high fiveing (no belly bounces yet)  Teams arriving with afternoon sun upon them (although in July the sun is setting pretty late in Ireland): The Gothic couple, the Ministers, The Father and Daughter, and the African American couple.

Some other observations:  All teams are seen in Ireland dressed differently than when we first saw them in Los Angles.
                                      The Couple in Conflict has changed clothes but in all three activities that we see they are now dressed the same; Jennifer starts off with a white windbreaker over a green shirt, but she takes it off and ties the jacket around her waist for the donkey and aerial bike stunt.  So this might show that the donkey and twin bike are not a detour but tasks that everyone has to do. Why would she take it off for the donkey stunt (hot), put it on for the twin bike ride, then take it off again for the high-wire act?  If that were the correct sequence.

The sun keeps going in and out and it looks like rain comes and goes (typical Irish weather) rain gear gets put on and taken off.  Perhaps Chateau will be able to deduce some time frames here when the sun is shining.

Shots of teams in the taxi must be Ireland since the cameraman is on the left and the driver on the right.

The ministers have the same tee shirts on during their confessional as they had on at the pit stop but different from what they had on in Los Angles.  The Gothic couple have different tee shirts on during their confessional than they had on at the pit stop and still different from those they were wearing in Los Angles.

One more scene places the teams in Ireland.  We have shot of one couple (I'll get everyone's names down some day) entering what looks like a typical bed and breakfast (note sign on door "Toilets"; elsewhere in Europe or rest of the world for that matter except in the U. S. such facilities are named WC or Water Closet) and greeting Azaria and Hendekea  who are already there.  Could this be an "overnight wait for tomorrow stop" or after the pit stop?  I want to go back and check their clothing with the LAX stuff.

And there is a shot of the Ronald in rain gear getting off a "ferry" or small inter-island ship.  He is wearing later the same rain jacket after completing the high-wire, death-defying bike ride. So do teams travel to an outlying island (Arran) before doing tasks, or is this something that comes later?

That's a quick rundown from what I have seen .  Again, it looks like an awful lot of stuff for one one-hour program.

Leg 1 = Kate & Pat may actually survive, i think Ari & Staella be elimnated as they were crying in the countryside at pit stop, Ronald & Christina finish  1st place.

jennifer & Nathan looked pretty stresed in the donkey ride though. If the countryside episode is Ireland, KAte & PAt get past it. I think Ireland is the first leg for sure

Yes mushpants I think you guys are going in the complete opposite direction, In one of the Pics from the intro flashes, Kate and Pat are at the pitstop and are so happy I dont think that Kate would look so happy and Pat to be smiling and laughing if eliminated unless they are weird?

I would like to make a statement of "Apskip's Law" - teams that appear in promos or screencaps devised by those wily Amazing Race editors as doing poorly NEVER get eliminated in that episode.

I have watched the Amazing Race for 11 seasons and this law has held up for all of them. The Amazing Race editors are masters of misdirection. If a team looks like they are about to go down, count on them to not get eliminated.

Unfortunately this law provides little guidance about which team does get eliminated, except that it is one of the usually several teams that is not portrayed in promos or screencaps as doing poorly.

I originally had Ari & Staella confused with Jenn & Nathan and yeah I see what you all mean with the "I love you" --shades of JVJ TAR 11.
I have all weekend to get the screencaps together so maybe we can figure something out from those.

Is there going to be an RFF TAR game?

I saw a commerical here on CTV, I don't know if anything was new but there was a longer shot of the starting line I'll try and record it if i see it again.

Give CBEss some credit: last night between 8:00PM and 11:00PM they ran four, count 'em four, 20-second promos (that's a lot of promo time!)

Looking at them again, it is not clear where the scene of teams getting off the white boat (ferry?) with Ronald in the foreground with his rain parka on fits into this episode.  If is part of this ep, then it looks like the teams do make a trip to one of the outer islands for part of the time.  From what was spotted before on another thread, the teams may be going to the Isle of Aran (one of the greatest documentary films of all time was made there: "The Man of Aran") to rent bikes and donkies. 

It is interesting to note the teams getting the most face time are: Ronald and Christina, Kynt and Vyxsin, Shana and Jennifer, Nathan and Jennifer, and Ari and Staella.

I am still not sure whether or not all 11 teams have to do both the Donkey and the Bike task.  Not being that familiar with the teams yet it is hard to spot who is who especially with different rain gear and clothing.  But it looks like these are the two Detour tasks (traditionally there is no Roadblock task in the first ep).  There are four teams doing both the Lead (Donkey) and Ride (Bike) task. Although it may be that Ari and Staella are seen doing both (they are having a bad time with the donkey on the brink of a cliff as Jason and Lorena ride by) and we have closeups of them on the bike.   So they may switch tasks.
