My first post in this board, I think,  and in this thread! I really think that Africa should be visited again, since it's a long time since last visit there... Season 12?? I hope they come to Europe, if nothing extrardinary happens. And I'd love them to come to Spain! I can be a PitStop greeter!!!!  :lol: I also think that South America is returning this year, which makes me feel sad as I'm bored of seeing locals speaking Spanish out of my country (Just kidding), but I see al the legs in South America alike to each other.

I hope that there are 15 episodes, or 16 or 17. The more there are the better it is! And, I'm just looking for another 60+ year-old team!! They rock!

TAR15 to Valencia, please!!!!!!

Obviously. That teams see the race from another point of view. It is awesome to see Meredtih and Gretchen (Yay!) or Fran and Barry. I strongly miss ateam like those...  :'(

HEY!

Here's an idea.

My mother and I are U.S. citizens but we live in Canada. I was born in Canada, but I have dual citizenship because Mom was born in USA

However, I have an American passport, but she has a Canadian one. However, it is so blessed easy for her to get an American one.

HELP US GET ON THE AMAZING RACE 15!

WE WILL WIN AND MAKE RACE HISTORY TWICE!

IF YOU CAN HELP US, PLEASE DO!

Articles like this one lead me to believe that we'll see much more "product placement" in TAR 15. Maybe not Hellmans Mayonaise but other more international brands like McDonalds, Mercedes etc...

http://www.broadcastingcable.com/article/278972-Broadcast_Network_Execs_Expect_More_Integrated_Campaigns_This_Upfront_Season.php

BTW - I'm starting to like Nina Tassler...
Quote
CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler said the product integrations her network did with Unilever this season -- involving the company’s Hellman’s mayo product on New Adventures of Old Christine and Bertolli pasta throughout CBS’ Monday night comedy lineup -- was held up as a “gold standard” for how these deals should work. “We’re in talks about doing it again,” she said.

I couldn't care less if the clue read something like "Take a Travelocity roaming gnome to the Mercedes parking garage and fill it up with BP gas so you can go through the drive through at McDonalds to receive your next clue, courtesy of AA.com"

As long as there are still clues to read, I'm happy.

Has anyone given thought to the possibility that the sighting in Bogota might provide cover for AR15 to have that as its first stop? TARLatin America creates that possibility of two races being in the same area at the same time to confuse spoilers. I don't have any evidence that this is the case, but just want to see how others react to this concept.

If it helps to cover the costs of the race, then I can overlook it. Travelocity is already a part of the race for many years (love the :gnome) so if we get something like a McD's or KFC helping out a leg or two, then I'm all for it.
Just here to visit.

Be warned! The slippery slope towards travelling to a country just to count money or to wash a car!

Didn't we see that last season with TAR Israel and TAR 14 both going to Thailand? Or have I got my wires crossed?

But we didn't see TAR Israel having episodes in Thailand AT ALL...  :lol:

Anyway, please don't let TAR 15 be flooded by product placements! Please No! I don't want to see TAR be like TARA having Caltex, Singha, Standard Chartered and Sony interchanging product placements throughout EVERY LEG until the Finale...  :torche

If CBS would want to show us a season of TAR this fall, filming must resume at this early point in time... I'm quite worried and alarmed now, that the WHO has now declared that Swine Flu is officially a pandemic... XD That it may delay filming due to foreign reactions and restraints toward this proclamation...

Here's the news about the proclamation: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/un_un_swine_flu

Let's keep in mind that more people have been killed by regular flu since the H1N1 strain was discovered.

But I think we all agree in our hope that this doesn't effect the filming schedule.

This is going to be another case of the vaccine being more deadly than the virus, I think. Or at least an excuse to get certain unnecessary vaccines to people. (:;)

*Praying that TAR production overlooks the Swine Flu "pandemic"*
