This is old right? But where is he?

Hamilton Viewpoint park in Seattle, where the media day shots were taken.  :waves:

Speaking of which...any guesses for this season? He's used up most of the tall buildings in town.  :lol:

Let's assume that the CBS map is definitive on where the 2-leg places are. The next question that need to be answered is "Where is/are the NEL/(s) or TBC(s) in AR13?" We know from the fact that in a 11 leg race there are 8 elimination points and 1 final leg, leaving 2 legs for either TBCs or NELs.

Amazing Race history has taught us one thing beyond question, that the next-to-last pitstop is always TBC or NEL so that none of the 3 final teams will be eliminated. That means a TBC or NEL for leg 10 in Moscow.

The other question is then "Where is the remaining NEL/TBC?"  It could be in any of legs 1 to 9, but I think the highest probability is for leg 6 (first Delhi area leg) or leg 7 (second Delhi area leg). The reason is that it is easiest to place a TBC leg with adjacent geography coming on the next leg combined with an any-regular leg even probability for a NEL leg.

Plus we know that 6 of the 11 teams make it to "New" Delhi making the first 5 legs elims, from there we can guess and mine would be the same as yours Apskips.

1. Salvador, Brazil - elim (Anita and Arthur?)
2. Fortaleza, Brazil-elim (the blonds or Anthony & Stephanie)
3. La Paz, Bolivia-elim ( the blonds or Anthony & Stephanie or mark & bill)
4. Te Puke, New Zealand-elim (the blonds or Anthony & Stephanie or mark & bill)
5. Siem Reap, Cambodia-elim (Aja & Ty?)
6. New Delhi, India-non-elim
7. Old Delhi, India- elim
8. Almaty, Kazakhstan-elim
9. Moscow, Russia-non elim
10. Moscow, Russia-elim ( Tina and Ken? I think)
11. Portland, Oregon-winner ( I have my own guess too, I too choose Nick & Starr)

I honestly have no idea where to post these, old news I know but since I came across them searching WRP stuff why not.

We know the staff stayed at Le Meridian in Siem Reap so not a spoiler or anything ..for us. But always fun to see ...

A certain reality show that has contestants "race" around the world, staying at my hotel.


World Race Productions -- hmmm...


Part of the WRP fleet of vehicles.

??? is this La Paz?
Don't laugh but it looks like a minaret to me. I looked around Almaty but didn't see anything similar.

Well, it isn't the Almaty TV tower or the Almaty Nur-Daulet Mosque, :lol:

I think Dallas is the one having a budding romance with someone from another team.  The question is who.  It could be Sarah or it could be Starr.  But it's probably one of those two women.  It's most likely Starr because Sarah's dating Terence and because Toni & Dallas seem to be aligned with Nick & Starr, but I'm not 100% certain.

Starr and Dallas were flirting from day one in the jungle tents...seems like I read this or saw an extra video or something? But I do remember it...

All those in favor of Michael to look for chicken tasks in Kazakhstan, raise your hands..... (one, two, three...) all opposed (....none).  The majority having voted in the affirmative, the motion is passed.  Go for it, dude.  :tup:  :lol:

Here's some links to get you started:

Unlikely, considering that the Divorcees annoyed Toni & Dallas with their remark about Dallas's hair.  More likely it's Dallas & Starr or maybe Dallas & Sarah.
