TAR15 EP12: "Amazing Grace, How Sweet the Sound (Las Vegas)"

"Amazing Grace, How Sweet the Sound (Las Vegas)"
 The final teams fly to the finish line in Las Vegas. Original Air Date: Dec 6, 2009

Las Vegas, Nevada  8/7

Info starts here thanks to VegasSinner
*They will be in Las Vegas today, 8/7.
**It's not odd if you live here...it's actually full of fun, entertainment and excitement!  
That's probably why they chose Vegas for their final destination.
The last three teams flew in this afternoon at 1:45pm, their clue was to head to a wedding chapel on the Strip, walk in on a wedding taking place, and get the clue from the "King".  Once they arrived in the chapel, there was a couple set up to pretend to get married by Elvis, Elvis then gave them the final clue which was to make their way over to the MGM hotel at the other end of the Strip to win.  I have no proof.  You'll just have to take my word for it, a total stranger, that lives and works in sin city.  
Thank you, thank you very much

***No all female teams were among the three teams that arrived.

***** It was very hard to tell, they arrived all at the same time, so very unclear who is teamed up with who.  There were four Males, and two females, one was black.
I think was a Male/Male team, then a Male/Female team, and a Male/Black Female Team, but not totally sure.


******All I know is that they flew into Vegas and landed sometime between 1pm and 1:45pm... I don't know where they flew in from, (I had heard someone say Atlanta, but cannot confirm that one) they were instructed to go directly from McCarren airport to the chapel which is located in the downtown area.  It's only about a 30 minute drive, however if there is traffic or they get a unknowing cabbie, it could take 45 minutes.  ALL three teams arrived at the chapel at the SAME time and it was around 2:30 or so.  They all left the chapel within seconds of each other.  The clue that Elvis handed them said to go to the MGM, and that Wayne Newton would be involved.  I have no idea what they were to do at the hotel, or if there was a detour or roadblock after that.

*******They didn't go directly to the MGM from the airport....they went to the chapel from the airport.  The chapel is in the downtown area, a lot farther away.  Also take into consideration, the Strip is 5 miles long....then add 3 1/2 more to get to the downtown (Old Vegas) area.  I doubt if they'd let them bungee jump at the Dam with all the issues they've had, water skiing on the lake sounds more realistic, but not a big deal worthy of a reality show.  I can't wait to watch though.

The TAR Detective team has excellent reason to believe that the Finale Leg will take place in or near Las Vegas today! There may be tasks in the desert as well.

* Hi everyone! This is my first post but I've been lurking here forever...................love everything you guys do around here this is one of my favorite sites!

I had to register because my sister is in Vegas and she just saw a team! She said she was driving down the strip and was stopped in traffic when two guys with a camera crew ran behind her car! She saw amazing race flags! She said she did not get a good look at them but only saw their backs. They were wearing green and grey backpacks and darted through the traffic across the street! That was the only information she could give me but I thought I should pass it along.

This siting was 3 hours ago.....

** Thanks Chateau! I just asked about the pink hair and my sister said she couldn't see it but my dad did! I sent her that picture you posted and asked for her to show the rest of the family she is with to see if everyone can confirm it was that team .....I will let you all know, but it seems like it is the right team to me!
***My sister said they were near ceasar's palace on the strip...
And she just confirmed that is the team they saw! Do you guys think this is a team that is in the running for the finale or a decoy?

****They were running toward's Ceasar's Palace. My sister said they were full out running (that's why she didn't get a good look at their faces) She said she saw the camera men well and they were drenched in sweat..... my sister said that she first saw them on the sidewalk and when traffic stopped they darted out into the road to cross it and thats when they ran behind the car she was in.

*This is my first time posting on this site and I have pics of teams in Vegas!  Wish it hadn't taken me so long to post this, but I haven't had internet access until today.  Just read some of the more recent posts and Im hoping this will shed some light into who our F3 might be.  Was in Vegas over the weekend and a dream of mine came true, got to see the Amazing Race in action! I was on a balcony and below me, two teams came running by.  Both teams looked lost like they were at the wrong place, since they ran down the street right after.  Didn't see a third team, they could have come before I got there or went to a different spot. Tried to snap the best pictures I could.  But to figure out the time issue, this was in the early afternoon, as I had just finished up with lunch at the buffet. So this would totally fit into the flight times being discussed.  So this could confirm two of the F3. I definitely saw the guys in green with pink hair and the Globetrotter team.

While walking back to the Venetian on 8/7/09, we saw people in backpacks running and cameramen chasing them -- of course, my first thought was: The Amazing Race! This is the video I took of "the green team" getting into their cab.

Ericka is doing the Cirque du Soleil task at the Mirage, it has "The Beatles LOVE" in the background.
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

Tasks seen: rappelling of the Mandalay Bay (thanks Dan, kittygoesmeow, and north09)  and rappelling inside a theater to grab some flowers. And something to do with chips (maria and tiffany would have had an ease with that task).

I think the rappeling task is at the Mandalay Bay or the MGM grand

That wasn't the Luxor. Looked like the Mirage or Mandalay to me.

Isn't the Mandalay under common ownership with the Atlantis in both Grand Bahama and Dubai?

Doesn't sound familiar to me...but the same company owns MGM, Mandalay, Luxor, Mirage, Monte Carlo, Excalibur, Circus Circus, the list goes on and on...no mention of Atlantis.

Looks like rappelling is either at Mandalay or the Hotel right next door.

So if they do the typical "smart" task at the end how big of a blowup are Sam & Dan going to have?

Or do we think we don't have one of these this season?

I believe she was repelling off Mandalay Bay. Las Vegas is one city I'd like to onsider myself well versed in.

Agreed, although the finish line doesn't look familiar to me at all.

I have an ESP thing going on thru my mind for this episode and in my theory according to some of the clips that shown for the final episode of TAR 15:

1) There could be another switchback but this time it'll be on a detour task.  I'd saw Sam and Dan performing a face first task which is very similar to the one from TAR 4 in Brisbane, Australia leg.

2) I do believe on a final road block task, filling and counting many casino chips until the chips on the table should reach to a $1 million mark.  More or less than that amount should redo the count.

That's what I know. :-[
