:lol:  Lokks like Mercedes gets some additional shameless product placement at the starting line.  Those sure look like Mercedes-Benz autos heading for LAX.   :snicker:  *shameless*   :funny:

I have no shame. I'll happily do a product placement for Mercedes anytime....if anyone from Mercedes is reading this now, please feel free to contact me to arrange delivery of the car.... :funny:

If it helps to offset the costs of TAR to keep it on the air, I'll be more than happy to accept product placement. CBS is doing more on-air plugs (happened late last year on Late Show with David Letterman).

If it cuts cost for TAR, i don't even mind if Ms Travelocity and Mr Travelocity is one of the teams of TAR 14 and win. Okay, that's off topic.

But to keep this on topic, i can never catch up with the TAR detective work. It's so intense!!! :meow:

Oh, it looks like Cara & Jaime will choose the cheese-carrying task, too.  If it's a Detour, that is.

Well whether by design or necessity, it looks like Cara/Jamie have figured out how to get 4 cheese wheels to the bottom of the hill in one trip.....lol

I think I found the bungee jumping location. If its already been noted sorry. I've been searching for green shutters lol.

Well here is the reference.


The Picture on the left is from Amazing race..
The Picture on the Right is from The Verzsanca-Staumuare Dam

The location could be: Verzsanca-Staumauer Dam in Canton Ticino?

Hope this helps.

Oh, it looks like Cara & Jaime will choose the cheese-carrying task, too.  If it's a Detour, that is.

We already have the ROADBLOCK which is the bungee jump at the Verzasaca Dam.  With such little time (one hour) to get all the introductions in, travel to Switzerland (including an overnight in Ticino,) travel to Interlaken I think that there is only one more task to be done - the cheese run - before the pit stop.

In 12 of the previous 13 TARs only one ep 1 had both a Roadblock and a Detour.  The one series that had both (TAR 10) was a two hour program with a double elimination.

So, to me, it looks like

(1)the teams travel (by car) from the start point  (Los Almitos) to LAX airport.

(2)Fly to Switzerland  via Zurich or Milano.

(3)Take the train to Locarno. 

(4) Taxi to Verzasca Dam

(5) Perform the Roadblock bungee jump.

(6) Travel by taxi to Ticino

(7) Find a church in the Plaza Piazza, and get a clue from the priest. 

 (8)Overnight camping out in the cold. (Did they bring sleeping bags?)

(9) Continue by rail on to Interlaken the next morning. 

(10)Get a clue somewhere in Interlaken.

(11) Find taxi and proceed to the cheese task somewhere outside of Interlaken. 

(12) Perform the cheese task, (carry four wheels of cheese down the hill to the hut at the bottom) 

(13) Find taxi and travel to the pit stop location (the infamous house with green shutters). 

(14) The last team there is eliminated.

GMAN,

That's a pretty good summary of what episode 1 will be like. I demur on your proposed timing of Verzasca Dam on Nov. 1. Some of the teams will not arrive in Locarno until dusk. There is no way a bungee jump is going to happen in the dark, primarily due to filming problems with no light. I think the Dam jump has to be first thing in the morning on Nov. 2, early enough so that many teams can get the departure just before 1pm from Locarno to connect through to Interlaken, arriving mid afternoon.

We already know from the policeman spoiler that he directed teams to the dam in the early AM, check the first page summary.

Obvious, but Jodi, Victoria, and maybe Kris are also doing the roadblock.

 ;D Here's a TAR tie-in for you movie buffs.  We all know that "Goldeneye" was filmed at the dam near Locarno, but did you know that "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" was shot on location in Bern (Berner Oberland), Murren, Lauterbrunnen, and Grindelwald.  I recently watched it on VOD, and saw plenty of green shutters and cow bells.   :lol:
