I was right about the all-male teams possibly making it very very far. :res:

Sigh, i anticipate a bad season. Not putting high hopes.

TAR 3 had 2 M/M teams in the F4 and it was arguably the best season.
TAR 6 had its only M/M team eliminated in Iceland and it sucked.

Isn't there usually an extended pit stop of some kind prior to the final leg? I know TARAS and TAR 12 had one, and I think TAR 13 and 14 had them as well.

Don't lower your expectations so soon, look on the bright side. The MM teams still left include:
Father/Son and Harlem Globetrotters! And that should mean at least one thing: 66% less bitching :lol:
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

You are only looking at the positive side. TAR 9 had 2 all-male teams winning almost every leg but 2 and coming in first and second consecutively for MANY episodes and it's arguably one of the worst seasons ever. TAR 4 had 3 all-male teams in the final 4 and it's also argubly one of the worst seasons which no one talked about.

As long as the remaining all-male teams don't ruin the season by doing a Nick and Starr or Marc or Rovilson OR Eric and Jeremy and BJ and Tyler.. i'm fine with it.

But with 3 all-male teams still in.. i daresay that they must have won all the legs in the previous legs to make it this far.. you can't have Dandrew always. :res:

So you believe the Poker girls had a very bad turn? I've always thought that in order to balance the teams better instead of casting normal MF and FF teams with weak MM, they should cast strong teams of each type

I like balance too, strong FF, MM and co-ed is fine for me and that works, I think the whole Strong MM hate is silly, but that is my opinion and remember, I want a FF to win too!

TAR 14 for example, is an extremely good cast. Mark and Michael can be considered fit, Brad and Victoria as fit older couple, fit all-male teams, fit siblings. The only team whom seemed to be able to be eliminated was Linda and Steve.. remember all the speculation?

I'm hoping for strong female teams like jamie/cara, kisha/jen

Kelly/Christy in TAR 13 were strong, but in their last leg, they were like begging to be eliminated. Mariana/Julia all but disappeared after the first leg in TAR 12. Christie/Jodi made too many mistakes in Amazing Race 14...

On the ferry, we met these two guys who turned out to be college cheerleaders from the states. Mrs. Benji was all OVER them.

Anyways, these guys had a camera crew shooting them. Totally surreal moment of the trip.

And I'm not sure if this next one relates to those...

@Tessa2theRescue We asked one of the employees, said rumors were Amazing Race. Is that show even on the air anymore?
about 2 hours ago from web

It could only be the orange team if it was in fact TAR, right? Except of course if the older guy from the green team used to be a college cheerleader  :lol:

^^ I read that, he was on a ferry with the teams so I assume it was the ferry to Tallinn he writes he was in Estonia at one point, he is on a Honeymoon in Europe, seems hes chatting with his sister on Aug 4th catching her up.

Not really. Dandrew just got lucky Ken/Tina helped them. And Kelly/Christy had a real chance. If only Dandrew were on the same flight to Cambodia as Aja/Ty. :funny:

Gah, even here we're going off topic. :groan:

Anyways, the Prague sightings remind me of TARA 2. :funny: (I posted this, but I think I posted it in the spoiler thread, thinking it was the spec thread. :funny:)

I really hope they will go back to where they started like in TAR 9? Any chance for our detectives to find out if they will be heading back from where they started? :funny:

A more secluded spot in Atlanta and easier to control unwanted crowds would be Swan House an Atlanta landmark. 

My all time top choice for an Atlanta start or finish location.

Okay, I am up and ready for action! Given the slightest hint they are coming my way...I can be at the airport in a flash! :jumpy:

TAR14 had the best cast among the 14 seasons of TAR IMO too. They really had equal chances of winning.

P.S. If you have a different perspective than mine, please don't react bitching against me. Thanks.

66% less bitching is 66% less entertaining IMO...

Teams bitching like Jaime in China, Hawaii and particularly every English and Non-English nation TAR14 has visited made it very entertaining.
Teams being a bitch like Tina during TAR13, Ron like in TAR12 made story lines so followed.

I'm hoping that Erika/Brian and Tiffany would provide quality entertainment in the whole race!  :tup:  :funny:

Teams bitching like Jonathan made TAR 6 unbearable, so it ALL depends on how they show us the teams on Episode 1.

On that note, imagine if the M/M teams were the ones bitching & the couples were Kris/Jon types. :funny:

I'm watching 3 flights from Prague today:

DL 63 to Atlanta - arrives 15:35 -
OK 50 to JFK - arrives 14:15 (currently 34 minutes late)
OK 102 to Toronto - arrives 14:03 (currently 27 minutes early)

I'll be waiting by the exit from immigration in Toronto... you just never know what could happen. :colors

re Masada:

I just checked flights from Tel Aviv on the 30th.

There is a direct flight to Brussels dep110 arr 505 ish which could connect to a shuttle to AMS, wh actually arrived at 712  AM. So logistically tight, but possible?

July 27th should have been taskday/Pitstop in Dubai, allowing teams to depart Dubai on the 28th.

If Steffi saw them on the 28th, not the 29th afterall, could we still queeze this in?

Jusy don't want us to write this off as not TAR 15 prematurely...

I'd have to buy a ticket to somewhere to be on the concourse here ...but with the slightest clue I will! :jumpy:

Peach, just in case are you planning to check out ATL today wher Delta Flight 0063 is scheduled to arrive non-stop from PRG  at 3:35PM?  Even if they are connecting to another flight, they would have to come through the one International Arrival gate.
