10/18 Amazing Race 15 - I知 Like Ricky Bobby (Dubai)


:barline
Dubai, UAE  7/26 -

gerry-doyle
Blog:
It was even more surreal and science-fictiony up close. Like a slender finger reaching into space. Made slightly more surreal by a) the Bellagio-style water show in the lake next to it, and b) the Amazing Race participants looking for clues as we left the restaurant where we ate dinner. For real.


Gerry In Reply to peach
I'd be happy to answer your questions, but a big caveat first: although we spoke to a couple of the contestants and it sure appeared to be the amazing race, no one could confirm because they all cited confidentiality agreements.

having said that, here's what we saw: it was roughly 10:30 p.m. dubai time on sunday, july 26. we were coming out of urbano, a restaurant in souk al bahar. they were not in the restaurant; they were looking for a checkpoint outside. (it turned out to be near the dubai mall taxi stand, by a giant statue of a black horse.) when we got up close to the checkpoint, we could see that it was a sign-in sheet, and there was a producer waiting nearby to hand the contestants instructions. the teams we saw were each one man, one woman, in their 20s or early 30s, dressed in t-shirts and giant backpacks. we didn't get any pictures of the contestants... sorry.

Gerry to peach:
Pretty good confirmation of two more teams from our Dubai source, after reviewing the pics I sent:

**I'm pretty sure the guy we briefly talked to was the male half of the maroon team. the two we encountered outside the restaurant were, I'm fairly certain, jodah and michelle. Who we originally misidentified for Canaan & Mika

First tweet! What a better way to start but to tell u that i saw some teams from the amazing race on my flight to dubai! I love that show!!


kolijohnjol in reply to graytex

This in a PM from the guy on the flight to Dubai...I'm trying to get flight details as well:
Their seemed to be team consisting of two females (one looked asian, the other american i am guessing!) and too tall 'black dudes.' i dont remember seeing anyone else but i will ask my friend i travelled with and may get back to you!
This is before he said, "And a hot blonde...".  All of those sound exactly like 3 of our teams.


EW:
In Dubai, competitors will be presented with a chilling Detour: They have to take snow from an indoor ski area and build a snowman outside in the scorching Middle East heat. 典he quality of the snow changes instantly the moment you bring it out, chuckles van Munster. 鄭nd the snowman can稚 be a little one擁t has to be five-, six-foot-high snowman with eyes and a real carrot in his nose.
CBSPRESSEXPRESS

Contestants will travel one of the fastest courses ever assembled on the Race - spanning eight countries in just 21 days.  Season 15 also features the quickest elimination in the history of the series, sending one Team home before they leave the starting line.  Teams fortunate enough to avoid the surprise elimination and compete for the $ 1 million prize will face the "Switchback," which sends Teams back to the site of one of the series' most infamous Roadblocks, as well as a surprise appearance by one of America's most beloved entertainers, a visit to the world's tallest building and a spicy twist on a Japanese game show.

according to the blogger Gerry, teams arrive in Dubai and......
here's what we saw: it was roughly 10:30 p.m. dubai time on sunday, july 26. we were coming out of urbano, a restaurant in souk al bahar. they were not in the restaurant; they were looking for a checkpoint outside. (it turned out to be near the dubai mall taxi stand, by a giant statue of a black horse.) when we got up close to the checkpoint, we could see that it was a sign-in sheet, and there was a producer waiting nearby to hand the contestants instructions

then perhaps the teams are instructed to go to the Burg where they get their first clue per sign in sheet:






From the Burg teams are instructed to drive .. to the desert first? but we see Dan and Sam in a taxi so..where do they have to drive to? maybe the Detours are first?




Desert: Roadblock
Teams sweat it out searching sand dunes for water in the blistering sun and one racer decides to help his competition hoping karma will be on their side in the end



Brian and Tiffany work together?

Canaan

Detours

Well, the Ricky Bobby comment obviously relates to the racing task... Probably a younger team that says it.

We know from BVM that they have to build a snowman...

The Burj Dubai might be a fast forward!  :-*
Meaning the desert was the Roadblock as Brian was both shown at the indoor snow place (detour of snowman making, we are told) and in the desert.

New thought:

Could the detour be:

 - Construct: Make a snowman
 - Construction: (at Burj Dubai) Do something

Roadblock:

 - Desert walk and collect/deliver things (the bag that Brian has isn't his  :lol:)

Fast Forward/Miscellaneous Task:

 - Race a car around track in a certain amount of time

If there was a Fast Forward I would imagine either Mika and Canaan (We might get eliminated) OR Megan and Cheyne (We are ahead so lets get more ahead) going for it.

Can't be:

 - Brian and Erika (Seen at two tasks)
 - Sam and Dan (Seen at detour)

If you do not know already the sliding task is at the indoor ski resort is in Mall of the Emirates. That is where ski Dubai is if people were unsure. But why are they sliding on their butts?

I agree with most of what you said. I think that Mika and Cannan are just complete lost and it has nothing to do with the task(I haven't seen the eppy yet). But I do agree with you speculation of the RB and FF.

Could both detours be in Ski Dubai and one be the snowman and the other one be sliding down a mountain using only their bodies? So detour is to Slide or Build?? :duno:
The Amazing Race TV Stars- Marc and Rovilson (Currently 1st)
Victor\'s Amazing Race- Mooyou and Jerseydude (Currently 5th)

Why...does Brian had a ladle (sp?) in the desert?

And wasn't part of the snowman Detour that they had to build it in the desert without it melting?

 ;D  OK, let's get serious.... now about those sand dunes...  :groan:  oh, who am I kidding, no way we can ID the exact spot...  BUT, here are a few possibilites for a desert task and pitstop.

Dubai desert oasis
Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve
Al Maha Desert Resort    ...only accommodation on the Reserve
