Just heard from Mrs Shrek's blogger who was kind enough to tell us this: :hearts:

Quote
I managed to get a couple pictures until they told me not to.  I cant remember the exact day but around the 20th or 21st I'd say. I saw them eating scorpions and some other sort of bug and puking them up. There were 2 asian teams I think. Also one girl threw up and another contestant said "Miss India Everyone!" I heard them reading a clue and it was in English. There was a father and son I believe who looked east indian. Everyone I heard talk sounded like they had American accents.

ask me anymore questions i'll try to help. expect the pictures in a few days

What else would we like to know? ???

Happy shopping day
 
I have a day free in HK before I fly off to Vietnam tomorrow, and what's a girl got to do when in HK? Shop shop shop till she drops of course!




 
Tuesday, 27 May 2008
Saigon surprise
I'm finally back from an exhausting week in Vietnam. I've never had so little sleep over an entire week and when I came back yesterday, I slept for 12 hours straight, and that wasn't enough.... I'm still tired!

But it wasn't exhausting entirely because of work ;), in between work we found time to hang loose and relax a little over alcohol and a few laughs. The alcoholic demon in me showed its horns and I managed to have late night drinks almost every other day at Q bar (the 2nd night we were there, we saw Amazing Race being filmed! I had to be restrained from running infront of the camera...)

The day the event ended, we managed to get more people to join us for drinks at Q bar and it was one C-R-A-Z-Y night! It just took a couple rounds of shots to get everyone silly, and surprise surprise, I was one of the last one standing - I put it down to my weak bladder and need to pee every few minutes, the alcohol just goes right thru me - and ended up having to drag one of the girls from the Thai team back to her hotel room because she couldn't even stand on her feet.

All in, it was a great trip. I got to work on a major regional event and got to know really fun people from the HK and Thai teams. But by the last day in Vietnam, it was 9 days away from home for me, I was missing Michael and was actually happy - a first for me - to be going back to Beijing my "favourite" place in the whole world !!

Okay...She saw TARA filming...

But her OWN regional event she worked on also involved HK and Thai teams? This is confusing... :lol:

Or is her regional event actually TARA?  :iok

But a nice find either way. puddin!  :sucks

Close ups of Andrew's wonderful picture! :jumpy: :ty3:  :jumpy:

I think we have three teams here:

Team 1:


Team 2:


Team 3:




So--teams 1 and 2 are clear. Team 3 seems to be green head band girl but who is she with? Is the intense guy on the left? (He does appear to have a backpack on...) Or could it be orange shirt guy? Hmmmm........

I liked the girls in red too! It is just that the others seemed to have on backpacks and they don't seem to so I couldn't be sure...

I love the sitting on the table team!  Great eye!

But wow, a lot there at the same time making for a tight race.

Hopefully Andrew will be able to come here soon and help us out! :jumpy:

I will offer my interpretation of what was observed in Saigon at the Q Bar:

1. This woman went to Vietnam on May 19.
2. The second night she was there in Saigon was May 20, where she spotted ARA3 filming.
3. It is quite possible that ARA3 started in Saigon on May 20 before getting an extended pitstop and arriving Bangkok on the 22nd or 23rd.
4. This woman was later involved in some team competition which may or may not have been a local Amazing Race.

I'm reading it a little differently:

--we KNOW that the eating task was being prepared on Khao San Road, Bangkok on MAY 20 by 2 separate photos dated
--Andrew tells us that his photo of the task in progress was May 20 or 21st, so let's assume May 20 (goes w/ task being set up then)
--woman arrives in Vietnam on May 19
--managed to get to the Q-bar every other night she was there
--the 2nd night she was there, she saw the race
--suppose 1st night she went was May 20, then 2nd night she was there could be May 22
--clearly these dates are subject to error and could be May 21 or May 23 equally as likely ...
--her event involved teams of some sort, but not necessarily a local TAR event

So I think Bangkok for sure on May 20, and then Saigon, Vietnam  May 21-23 ish

So are these our first 2 legs? Or did we miss one? ???

Because we also have the blog report for "crossing the Amazing race" in Beijing... and the only 2 days that poster was stuck in the Beijing airport were May 19 and 20th.

So I am wondering if we have

Beijing airport sighting May 19 or 20>> heading to Bangkok
Bangkok May 20-21
Saigon May 21-23 ish

Was Beijing the site of the first leg? Nice Olympic tie-in perhaps...

Peach, I have gone back to doublecheck what I read. Several points emerge from this:

1. I buy your assessment that ARA3 was in Bangkok around May 21.
2. The teams clealy must turn up in Saigon later that week, not knowing exactly when but possibly as late at May 25.
3. Re-reading the blog listed as a link in puddin's post#11 on May 23, I have brought some of it below:

"Friday, May 23, 2008
Finally Arrived Ulaan Bator
 
We finally arrived in UB after passing the amazing race in Beijing.

I envy you for seeing an actual shooting of an Amazing Race in Beijing. We are actually tracking them down since they started filming it last May 20.

Finally Arrived Ulaan Bator
Stucked in Beijing - 20 May @ 9:35am"

This makes it fairly clear that if this was ARA3 and not a local race ARA3 may have started May 20 in Beijing.

4. Given the laws of physics and tranportation, teams cannot be in both Beijing and Bangkok at Khao San Road on the same afternoon of May 20. Which do you want to believe?

Here is how I interpreted that blog:

--they were on their way to Mongolia on MAY 19,
Quote
(Yes, we are still leaving to Mongolia on 19th May, 0110hrs)
but were not able to catch their flight. They spent the night at an airport hotel in prep for an 8AM flight (which was delayed till 7PM). If they were there 2 hours beforehand, their sighting could have been from 6AM onwards.
--so in my mind they were in the airport BOTH May 19 and 20 and could have seen the race either day.
--BUT I'm thinking the teams were leaving Beijing for Bangkok and prob arriving the day we see them doing the bug eating, which appears to be May 20.
--So say they departed Beijing AM of May 20>>> what kind of flights are available to get them to Bangkok by early-mid afternoon? Would that be possible?
--If not, then what about the evening of 5/19?

and in ref to the comment:
We are actually tracking them down since they started filming it last May 20.

This is a poster from a forum which has been getting almost all of their info directly from our pages.  ;)  So they know no more than we do right now...
which is that the race started "one day last week" which would be in the week beginning Sunday 5/18...   So I'm guessing that the race started either the 18th or 19th (leaning towards the 19th) in Beijing, and prob NOT the 20th...

The Land of Smiles

Northern Thailand has been one adventure after another and is certainly the highlight of my time in Asia.
The adventures started at the airport in Chiang Mai when three sets of couples ran past us, each trailed by a camera guy and an audio guy. We are pretty sure that they were part of the show The Amazing Race but when we asked them all one guy could say was "I don't know what you're talking about." Yeah, right.

I read somewhere that Marc's [Marc & Rovilson] co-host in a sports show, Diane, auditioned with her sister Jackie [All 3 in the pic above]. Well, Diane and Jackie are entertaining to me. Jackie is like bipolar and funny especially when she tries extreme sports. Okay. That's all. I'm not really sure.

If Beijing's speculated as Starting Line - Bird Nest Stadium is the greatest start location (like TAR4 - LA Stadium)

Like TARA1 and 2 , startline and finishline was same country/city .... I speculate Finish line will be in New Olympic Park - this also great place (man made Park) ....

puddin, I do not think that the Saigon sighting was either a figment of someone's imagination or a local race.

On the subject of how a team might get from the morning of May 20 in Beijing to any street in Bangkok in early afternoon, there is a way:

TG675 PEK BKK 0830 1215. This would give teams an hour from the airport to downtown.

On the subject on a Saigon stop being real, I have indicated that my interpretation of a Saigon visit from that blog is that teams could have been seen there as late as May 25. If they went to Chiang Mai(and another blog does imply that) on May 22, then they would be leaving there around May 24. What is a logical next stop? Saigon is as logical as anywhere else in Southeast Asia and teams were spotted there. Here are 2 flight combinations they could have used on May 24 or 25:

TG103 CNX BKK 0945 1055 connecting in Bangkok with AF163 BKK SGN 1315 1450
TG111 CNX BKK 0440 1550 connecting in Bangkok with TG686 BKK SGN 1815 1945

I have a new hypothesis caused by CHATEAU and puddin making statements that caused me to go back looking for something. I haven't found what I was looking for yet, but I did find this from password:

I am sri Lankan so i hear news from my home country and they said "The Amazing Race" was being flimed there.
It could be the amazing race asia or a local version of the show.

How about the possibilty that ARA3 really started in Colombo Sri Lanka on May 18 or slightly earlier and then went to Beijing?
