Has there been any sightings yet out of Japan? If not maybe another leg in Japan to cut costs?

They're probably in pit stop right now, readying to leave in 4 - 5 hours or so... :)

True. So if they will leave Japan tonight, they will arrive their next destination country maybe tomorrow morning or afternoon. Depends on the flight.

I'm surprised that there weren't any sightings in Japan (not counting the airport). I've been searching but I've found nothing...

I don't think many Japs are TAR fans though... :) I'm keeping my fingers cross that the clue reads: Fly to Manila Philippines! LOL!

 :waves: Hello dirkdaryl! I saw you post at Twitter!

TAR should avoid Mindanao part in the philippines because BOMBS here are sporadically appearing. So I think if the race is visiting the Philippines this time again, its 99.99% probable that they will not go here in Mindanao.

I like the staus for American 5829 better.

AMERICAN AIRLINES  5829
OPERATED BY JAPAN AIRLINES  
Departing: LAX Los Angeles   07/18/2009   1:20 PM
Arriving: NRT Tokyo   07/19/2009  4:45 PM  


Saw 3-4 teams with cameras in tow board UA 891 LAX-Tokyo on 7/18/09 1:13pm

AA 5829 departed LAX at 1321 Saturday July 18 and landed Narita 1617 Sunday (crossing the Internaitonal Date Line pushes the date forward one). It landed 28 minutes ahead of schedule.

Just realized that on July 22 there is a full solar eclipse happening - visible in Asia where the teams are now.

Total eclipse path takes it across middle India, Biratnagar( Nepal), Beijing, Wulumuqi, Changchun, Xining, Xi'an, Shanghai, Wuhan, Chongqing, Hong Kong, and Kunming. Then it heads out across the Pacific. North and south of there would see a partial eclipse.

Can't think of an eclipse based TAR detour though...  :duno:

This site has some interesting graphics illustrating the eclipse path.

Right place this time.

I got alittle bored (and still trying to shake off the excitment) so I tried doing my own little research on Twitter updates. Some people are talking about semi-famous people or celeb editions in stuff so I think this would be crediable in that department.

I typed in Amazing Race on Twitter. Of course, it was annoying to get through random updates with the words "amazing" and "Race" in them. But then I found a Twitter update that said (I lost who said it)

"Goodluck in your race Jorge Lorenzo, your not out of it yet."

So I keep the Name Jorge Lorenzo, and Googled it. Of Course a Wiki page came up so I clicked that and Hes a 22 Year old Race car driver, Born in Spain (Not sure if he lives there. But if he doesn't I think he'd have a shot of going in the race).

However when I saw his picture I thought "He looks somewhat like one of the Red Team Guys."




then I tried and made this pic.



Could one of the red Racer's be Jorge Loren zo? SO I give it to you RFF for you to examine....I hope its not a waste of time.

Australian English. they have terms like willy-willy, which cannot be found in the normal american dictionary.

Hello everyone...long time reader, long time TAR fan but first time posting.

And I had to post because I wanted to clarify on Jorge Lorenzo status:

1. He has a spanish passport, he can't be on TAR
2. He is a professional motoGP rider
2. He was competing in Germany on Sunday
3. He earns 5 million euros per year, so I dont think he would compete here for money, but fun.

I hope this clarifies the red team member mistery :)

Chateau= Chapeau!!! Amazing discoveries you guys!!!


sorry about the mess i did with this post

Lol I am from Australia and have NEVER heard willy-willy before!! About the red team guy...it looks like a close match!
The balding lines don't match...poor Lorenzo's already losing hair

No wishlists and dream routes please!

 incoming ............

That is not a wishlist or dream routes, its a speculation isn't that what this thread is for.

Also wouldn't tomorrow, July 20 here in the USA be July 21 when teams will be leaving for the next leg!


Let's do the geography math here. The plane flies over the Internatonal Date Line east to west and gains 24 hours. the flights themselves are scheduled to 11 hours plus or minus a few minutes. They actually take 10 1/4 to 10 3/4 hours due presumably to favorable wind conditions. The kicker is the time zone difference of 16 hours that Tokyo is ahead of Los Angeles. Add it all together and the departures around 1 pm Los Angeles time become arrivals around 4pm Tokyo time.

most of the locations that the flights leaving from Tokyo are heading to East and south east asia. So maybe a leg there?

I know this is kinda off topic, but it was redirected from another thread so I'm just gonna post here.
In response to everyone trying to figure out the 12 teams, it's just a hunch, but maybe a team was injured and removed. Like Jim from Jim & Marsha falling on a nail in Amazing Race 5 or Gretchen falling down the mine shaft in AR7. However just a hunch. :duno:

Some speculation based on both published reports and Chateau stakeout.

We have had a couple postings about TAR having a 15 episode season (though that is very possibly a typo), we have reports of 12 racers (yet only can spot clearly 12 cars, there has always been an extra), we know that we have a two hour opener (unclear if they mean two one hour legs, or one two hour leg.

We have reports of an early task at the starting line.

So some supposition, we could have 15 hours of TAR, and their are several easy (and more importantly cheap) ways for this to happen.  One a two hour season opener and season finale.  We have had two hour openers before (one leg edited as two hours in season 5,6,7,8,9).  This is extremely smart for budget reasons.  You get twice as much ad revenue with very little additional cost. Something budget conscious CBS would like (and yes money has been tight for CBS).  An additional (yet cheap early task) would give the episode a little more action (some have felt the two hours openers are a little two padded).  That right there takes a typical season to 14 episodes (at very little extra cost).

Now we have never had a true 2 hour season finale.  Yes we have often had two separate legs aired on one night as a two hour finale, but we have had no true 2 hour single leg finales (well you could legitimately argue the Family Edition).  This can also be done at nearly no additional cost.

With 12 racers we have two possible situations. 

1.  An early elimination at the starting point (damn cruel), which would save the show money on flights (just a flight to sequester, perhaps not even that, which would really suck).

2.  Or keep 12 (like season 3) so that you have fewer non eliminations (or TBC) legs.

So I am going out on a limb and saying we are getting 15 hours of TAR (just in 13 legs), with (thanks to just 12 cars that were spotted) an early elimination at the Starting Line.

Since this is the speculation thread, I want to make a pitch for Melbourne Australia as either the next stop for AR15 or one in a series of stops in East Asia, Australia and Oceania. And Anthony Bourdain's new show tonight was solely in Melbourne. I have some in-laws that live in Melbourne if there is a need for information there.

Yeah, Victoria is the only state on the Australian mainland that TAR hasn't visited, but I would think that they might head to Melbourne and spend a leg down in Tasmania.

Is it possible that TAR is taking a new route by going to Asia - Pacific??

Like Asia/Russia - Oceania - South America - North America? Just a SPECULATION.
