The brothers in red were already spotted in Cambodia, we have photo evidence of them at the temple. (pretty sure it is them)


And if Tokyo is really two legs, then maybe there would be a NEL/TBC? All spec... :lol:

I suppose Keri/Lance are another possibility for early elim -- I think the only thing keeping them in the mix is the "old but not too old" speculation in Dubai.

NVM - they were spotted leaving Vietnam, so they're solid through the first 3 legs.

Remember the source wasn't sure about Keri and Lance, he thinks it might have been them so not really solid evidence imo woden and what an outstanding job on the Timeline updates woden  :jam:

And thank you so much girlclumsy, I follow your blogging because your such a riot and someone I would love to hang out with in real life :D

However, the logic of Woden's statement that there should be 4 eliminated teams by the fourth leg is true under two major conditions:
1. There was an elimination in Los Angeles.
2. There were no NELs in the first 3 legs. Historically, I cannot every remember a NEL in the first 3 legs of any Amazing Race, but that doesn't mean it couldn't happen. There were many people telling me that a prediction of AR12 finishing in Alaska was crazy because there was no precedent for a finish outside the lower 48 states. We all know where that finish was. There could have been a precedent-setting NEL in one of the first 3 legs, but I would rate its probability in the 10% range.

All speculation too.

But it's a 2 hour season premiere.. so it could really just be a mega leg for Leg 1 in Japan. Doesn't have to be TBC/NEL or what?

If the 12th team Vegans are eliminated at the start it could be that a team is spared leg like you all said above, a superleg and back to back TAR's, whats not to love?

I just secretly hope that the 12th team has been spared from elimination from 5 minutes into the race. Maybe they have been forced to take a third flight that departs latest? :funny: Just hoping.. because it's really saddening to go into the race and be eliminated 5mins later.. as if Bilal and Sa'eed's elimination wasn't sad enough.. but at least they FLEW to China! :(

Imagine being in the cast for like a whole month and being talked about before TAR 15 started.. and letting the whole world know and see you getting eliminated ASAP the race started. :(

Not an actual leg, but in TAR 9, the third "leg" was a TBC Pitstop, so except for the rest period & penalty, it can count as an NEL (and in relation to this, is there a chance they could do a TBC leg in Japan?). And including foreign editions in the talk, there have already been seasons with first-leg NELs.
I'm baaaaaack!

But what's the point of doing a TBC in Japan.. it's a 2 hour premiere. People would want to see an end to the episode.. not a TBC. :duno:

Joab I would think the 2 hour season premiere would be perfect for a TBC. You would have the TBC at the end of the first leg about halfway through the episode where Phil says keep racing and then just continue showing the second leg in the second hour. Plus it gives us more time to get to know the teams before one of them is eliminated.

zacz,
Your thinking is sound, but in the history of the Amazing Race early TBCs have never happened. The reason is that (unlike ARA1 and ARA2 where they started with NELs in the first leg) World Race Productions likes to reduce the number of teams still in the Race as quickly as possible. That saves on camera/sound crew needed and support costs even thou with Elimination Station it probably doesn't does change the direct cost of the team itself. We all know that out of the two legs involved in a TBC (I know many would have 1 leg, but not me) one will not have any team eliminated.

Production cost does not seem to be a worry for them this season if their first destination is Japan. :res:

zacz, i know where you're coming from. But a TBC technically wants us viewers to continue watching what happens next week isn't it? If they put a TBC in between of a 2 hour premiere.. then it is really weird because it's really pointless. It would have been better for a NEL isn't it?

Production might have planned two legs in Japan, figuring 12 legs in total, and then made the first two legs an "uberleg" when CBS changed the Emmys back to the 20th, and set up a two-hour premiere with s TBC in the middle.  That would explain both the start line elimination task, and still have a pit stop with an elimination at the end of the second hour.

I thinl this is a situatioon where TPTB/BVM had to made adjustments to fit the schedule they ended up having for September.

 :yess:  Good job, everyone.  Looks like the Tokyo promo locations are well spoiled at this time.   :snicker:

Just thinkin' out loud, could Yoyogi Park be used as the "mandatory first leg" reststop?   ;D  Not sure if camping there is allowed...except for the occasional homeless person  OK, carry on, y'all are going great.   :tup:

http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2034.html

There are 3 major international airports in Japan.
1. Tokyo's Narita Airport
2. Osaka's Kansai Airport
3. Nagoya's Central Japan Airport

There are no flight to Ho Chi Minh City from the Nagoya's Central Japan Airport.

Either they fly to Ho Chi Minh City from Tokyo's Narita Airport or Osaka's Kansai Airport.

I speculate the 2nd leg should be in a small unknown village near Osaka.    :duno: I don't know.

There's been a bit of talk on here as to where in Cambodia the pit stop is.  I stumbled across filming of the race while in Phnom Penh, and hung out at the pit stop for 3 hours, watching all of the action.  The pit stop is at Wat Phnom, which is the founding place of Phnom Penh.  Sorry, no pictures to back this up, as it was a 'locked site'.  We were told to put our equipment away or it'd be confiscated.

Thanks thomash! Did you see the order the teams arrived? Would be great to know what the last team to arrive looked like. Here you can find pictures of the teams

The best thing of course would be ONE leg for the 2-hour premiere. That way we get to know the teams really well right off the bat without sacrificing the time left until the end of the season. If they did it as two legs in one episode then it is pointless as a "get to know the teams" scenario, unless the first half ends in a non-elim. But technically that only really helps us get to know the "first out" teams better, not the longer-lasting ones.

Glad I could help!!  :)  Not exactly sure on the order, but I'm pretty sure the globetrotters were one of the first few to check in as they were one of the first to leave the pit stop in the vans.  When I arrived at Wat Phnom it was July 25th at approximately 2:00pm.  Most teams managed to check in, but we did see one team racing to the top.  Got it on video but it's not clear as to which team it was.  I've got some other video of teams that have already checked in.
