Lots of place to go in Brazil: Manaus, and how about Brazilia?  I know, I know anyone living in Rio wouldn't be caught dead in Brazilia!

I can't back up this info with more than this http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?p=20004968 - in portuguese - but it appears they traveled to Salvador, Brazil's third largest city, on April 24 and 25. One of the tasks was to rappel down the Elevador Lacerda, a city landmark (the white structure). The source is a local newspaper.

Hope it helps.


i babled it into english  and the first post of the thread states this

24/04/2008

The bahian capital is the scene chosen for the writings of reality American show "the Maratona", an international competition where teams cover some countries fulfilling a series of tasks. The program, that counts today on a hearing of more than 50 million people per year, already is being recorded in some of the main tourist points of Salvador. In the morning of this thursday (day 24), the competitors of reality show had had that to go down, in the style rappel, the 70 meters of the Lacerda Elevator. To carry through the test, that called the attention who passed for the place, the filming team installed a net to the long one of the elevator.

The presence of the program in the city, initiative that counts on the support of the Agency of Economic Development of Salvador (Adesa), through the project Salvador Film Commission, promises to result in an important national and international promotion for the bahian capital. For the superintendent in exercise of the Adesa, Loyal Leonel, "productions as this, besides guaranteeing income and chance of work for the technician and the local population, are an excellent card-postcard to attract new tourists and more investments for our city". In its 13ª edition and shown by net AXN of the United States, reality show will take the beautiful landscapes of Salvador for diverse parts of the world, through the closed canals of TV.

Still inside of the actions of the program, new writings are foreseen tomorrow, of this time in the Maritime Terminal of Salvador, in the Commerce. Until the moment, already they had served of location for the international production the Square of the Sé, the Inclined Plan Gonçalves, the Order Third of the San Francisco (Historical Center), the Slope of the Carmo and the staircase of the Paço.

It is not the first time that attractive the tourist ones of the city serve of scene for great televising productions. In the end of the passed year, Salvador was palco of the writings of the program Xuxa Connection, that covered points as the Lighthouse and the Port of the Bar, the Corridor of the Victory, the Square of the Campo Grande, the Market Model and the Tip of the Humaitá. The team also used as scene Fort Serrat the Mount and the Fort Is Marcelo.

Film Commission

Exactly before its official launching, the project Salvador Film Commission already offers to institucional support the audiovisuais productions, facilitating to information regarding licenses and necessary authorizations for filmings. To make possible the production of reality show "the Maratona", the Adesa intermediated, together the municipal agencies, the document release that the producer Planet Film needed for the writing of the program.

The Adesa, after the total implantation of Salvador Film Commission, will give services, such as survey of bank of images and visits the locations, qualification and cadastre of technician of the area, institucional support e, mainly, will continue working to attract new productions that can use to advantage the natural beauty and the urban historical quantity of Salvador as scene.

Fire up Google Earth/Maps and look just to the right of the elevator and you can match the wavy patterns on the ground of Terreiro square. (street map here)

per raceguy at TWOP:

Could they already be in Melbourne?

Reference is VERY vague...but here you go!

Quote
Just got off the phone with a friend of mine. Apparently - though I can't prove one way or the other because they don't have a camera and I'm stuck at uni - there's a flag on top of an office building on Elizabeth Street right now. The only likely task, if any, would be one of those 'look out the window and find a flag' deals. I'm thinking there's also a cluebox set up right now on the Rialto Towers Observation Deck, which would make sense because there's a new tower with a higher observation deck, and this gets fewer spoilerhunters like myself.

Firstly, crappy task, even if it's one I just speculated about, and secondly, evil making them visit Melbourne in the middle of a cold snap - currently it's around 1:20pm local time, and temperature is 10.2 degrees Celsius. [Americans, that's just a tiny fraction over 50 degrees Fahrenheit by my count - and yes, that is a cold snap by local standards.] Still, both Sydney and Cairns (and Darwin too?) were rainy when TAR came, so I suppose I shouldn't complain.

I agree about the local Melbourne races--dates don't look right--I also track corporate stuff and don't recall anything ongoing in Melbourne just now. But to be safe, I already emailed the organizers to ask if anything they are running could fit that description. Also know raceguy so am asking for more detailed info...

yeah.

But he did tell me it was a 'gold and red flag like that show you obsess about'.

Maybe is a little late to say that, but I live here in Salvador, and I saw them on the elevator, but I was just passing by, I just don't realized that they are from The Amazing Race. In that moment, a couple were on the top and another one in the middle of the way. Beyond that, I'm not helpful...
