Taipei, Taiwan Date July 27? 28?


 Lynn/Alex  make an unsubstantiated claim ("we also heard from a little bird") about China, thanks to Slowhatch.


Thank you to Newbie huholah  

*HEY I KNEW THEY WERE COMING TO TAIPEI: 
*My friend told me that he thinks he saw teams on the amazing race approaching Taipei 101. 
*So here it goes: around 26,27 of July as I remember- sorry I couldn’t remember the EXACT dates, he was shopping with his girlfriend in xin guang shan uiah beside Taipei 101. 
*When he was planning to shop in 101 at noon, he saw this man and women (couples) ran out of the taxi and looked up at Taipei 101. 
*He also saw 2 camera men running with them. 
*However, he found it weird that the couples did not enter the Taipei 101 and were actually waiting for someone. 
*He describes the couple as a brunette woman and a man.  He said that the man seemed very athletic and fit
*Since he saw that there were camera men around, he notices that this might be on TV. 
*He continued to stay for 10 minutes and another group came which he describes as another couple which consists of a blond girl
*He THINKS that there was an Asian team far behind or eliminated already because he was a good listener.  
*When he was walking into Taipei 101, he was literally 2 feet away from the blond racer and he heard the girl say something like “I wonder what the Asians would say if they came to this place”. 
*At first, I thought this was amazing race asia because I didn’t expect amazing race 12 to contain another asian team ever since the cho’s.  Now after the official list of teams came out, I strongly believe my friend’s sightings because there were asian teams. 
*He only saw 2 teams each holding a blue form on their hands.  


*he thinks that Lorena and Jason were in but is not sure because he could only recognize the long hair
*He says that he is not at all confident with what he saw with the second team. 
*He jst notices a blond woman with a man(he didnt really see the man's face). 
*He was pretty sure it was friday that he saw them because he was only advailables on fridays to go out.

*He said that he saw the first group heading the direction of getting to the top of 101-elevator.  And the second group, he didnt see because when he walked into the building the second group was still outside(possibliy asking how to get up to the tower).  I would assume there is a clue box up at the tower because I asked my frend if he saw anything else on the racer's hands, but he only saw a blue piece of paper..

*I'll ask my friend tomorrow......All I can say is..I think Taipei locatin was either 26th of July or 27th.....And since he only saw 2 teams on a spand of 10 minutes, it has to be a leg with very few teams because if it was one of the beginning legs, more than 2 teams would appear in a span of around 10 minutes.....
*my friend was not sure who he actually saw because it was 3 months ago.....he only THINKS its jenn/nathan because of the blunette hair of the woman --   huholah

Could that be Phil when he has to eliminate Ron and Christina if they are the ones to go? He seems to like them

Clues~
Sorry, Guys, I'm Not Happy to See You
*All one Racer wants for her birthday is a spot in the Final 3…will her birthday wish be granted?
*The gloves come off as one Team tries to convince an airline employee to not sell tickets to another Team. Will the employee comply?
*One team becomes the brunt of attacks and criticism from another team.

I do wonder.  Personally I don't like the intersection.  But it is possible.  THough would they put it on a leg with just four teams left? 

Season ten had 6 teams, has did ALL Stars, but both used Fast Forwards to get rid of two other teams.  So who knows.

The intersection is definitely not my favorite feature of the race. I hope we don't see it in this race, but youneverknow.

I really think it's an intersection lol. Since they were "waiting" for another team to arrive at the tower. If one team is being delayed due to the "speed bump", this is going to put some weight on the team that is going to be waiting for them.

You know, it could be an Intersection.  I don't usually mind the Intersections, although some of them have been pure torture -- like the ones where teams had to eat a lot!

Michael, maybe the "you" in the quote is someone they don't want to pair up with - like Jenate gets to the intersection point first, but Nick/Gramps are next for example.

Granted I don't think there's an Intersection - if there were, the two couples would arrive at Taipei 101 together.

Sounds to me like a team got on a plane thinking no one else would make it and the other teams got on at the last minute.

I suspect one of the three leading teams says this about T.K. & Rachel when the dating couple finally makes it to the airport!  In any case ... I hope Ron & Christina make it to the finals!  With the Speed Bump and T.K. & Rachel being three hours behind, this could be it for the dating couple -- and then my favorite team will make it into the finals!   :jumpy:

Wiki steals from us and then doesn't credit us because they suck like that  :waves:

Thanks to banzai's video, new screencaps

 
Don: It's a Race now.
TK: Time to start sweating!
Ron, shaking his head side-to-side ....
Chris: Crunch time.
Phil: It's all about who'll make the final three in a Race for a million dollars. The gloves are coming off.
Jen: That hatred is in my blood right now. I wanna rip those dreads right out of his (TK's) head!
Nic: We'll be aggressive. No competitors are left, just a bunch of pansies.
Ticket counter ...
Chris: If there are other requests, tell them it's full.
Jen: Don't listen to them! No! You can't listen to them!! Are you sure you didn't see anything?
Chris smirks.

The train's colors match the scheme used by Taiwan High Speed Rail (schedule/timetables here). It's mainly for inter-city travel, but it would also make for a quick trip to central Taipei.
