:groan: All Phil said is that the race would start in the US, no city was mentioned and I'll just bet it is not LA. THat guy needs a fact checker.

Hello everyone! Decided to finally post today after lurking around for several weeks.... I'm 23 and I live in Switzerland (weekends / my family) and Austria (where I study). I've come across the Amazing race by chance (youtubing something completely different and dang, suddenly there it was on my screen), and now I'm so hooked I even came here and read through all 35 pages of the spoiler thread for the current season....!
Just wanted to say I'm more than impressed how you guys managed to cover the entire race! Wow!! I'd love to try to somehow help with the upcoming 14th season... It's been a couple of seasons since they've been around "my" countries... you never know. ;)

Now I'm not sure where to post this? Maybe it deserves its own thread?
For "The Early Show's" Destination Unknown, Julie Chen is surprised with a trip to Paris as she is whisked on a plane to The Grand Hotel, across the street from the Opera Garnier.

so, their 1st leg will be in PARIS?!? :duno:

That will be great, if the speculation is true.  And if they really went there, I hope the next leg they should visit is either to Monaco, Belgium or Switzerland and travel it via the Eurorail [as the cheap and faster way to get there] after the Paris leg. :tup:

but I heard some news right now that there's a snow storm that are now affecting in some parts of Europe and it might affect the race there.  I hope it won't be worse. :crown

NO Topaz, lol!


This is an Early Show segment--all Phil does is send them on their way--it does NOT mean anything for TAR14, lol....

Hi Guys, I Read It In The Amazing Race Wiki: I live in Ticino, the southern part of Switzerland. Today I saw two separate groups of two people with backpacks running around town, followed by a cameraman and a 4th person. I noticed they were speaking American English.

This was especially strange because I normally hear American-accented English perhaps once or twice a month, even though this place is pretty touristy. Additionally, I saw these Americans talking to a PRIEST outside of church and being filmed doing so. Seriously, what tourists talk to a priest (on camera)?  :yess:

So... One Of The Destinations Is Locarno, Switzerland.  :tup:

For those who haven't had the plesaure of going there, Locarno is at the northern end of Lake Maggiore. It is approximately a 2 hour, bus or train drive from Milan. Flights would probably be via Milan. Both Zurich and Geneva are much farther away.

This Early Show thing is a major rip off of the Today show's Where in the World is Matt Lauer, but with Phil giving clues. I wish there was a way to throw Julie off that balcony.

You know I'll defend you to the day I die, Michael, but Julie Chen is just a horrific TV personality to me.

I'll explain my rationale one day.  :snicker: :snicker:

First of all, Michael, when was the last time you were ever in Locarno? What you hear is frequently not accurate. Not only have I been there, but there is also this public information:

Quote
The easiest way is direct from Milan’s Malpensa airport, around an hour and a half’s car drive. There is also a shuttle bus from Malpensa airport, leaving about every two hours from just outside the station (exit door 4, stand 21 - see links panel) as far as Bellinzona, from which you can catch a twice-hourly - and highly scenic - rail shuttle to Locarno. Alternatively, if combining Locarno with Milan, there is a train, usually every hour, connecting Milan Central with Bellinzona, with a simple transfer there onto the Locarno shuttle. Both the rail and airport bus routes pass through Lugano.
There is another airport, Turin, which is about one hour further from Locarno than Millan - Malpense.

I know you like to jab me, but at least try and validate your information when you do!

To get to Locarno you have to travel for four hours by bus from Milan.
