More from Kevin and Zhou: :hearts:

I looked at the pictures and one team was Mike and Louie - I believe they were the first to arrive. I'm pretty sure that the other team (the second to arrive) was the frat boys - the guy I stood next to was a young white guy who wasn't wearing a cowboy hat.


The third team was definitely a father/daughter team because the coordinator kept telling the daughter to make sure she stuck together with her dad.

Interesting.  So if they're here, this is, what, F6?  Can't be F5, because I thought that's where Dan & Jordan were to have gone out.

Well either Carol and Brandy (Final F/F) are eliminated in F6 before Singapore spoiler and the man or woman with gray white hair is Steve (dad) or Steve and Allie are decoys and are out at F6

Chateau and I made a field trip yesterday to some of our projected Finale City locations. We pretty much hit all the sites at just about the same time teams would have been there as well. Some new info!!

Based on this tweet:

Quote
Storm Troopers are escorting 'Amazing Race' contestants through the Letterman Digital Arts Center
10:25 AM Dec 20th from txt --dylbeck

Our first stop was right here:



We managed to get DIRECT CONFIRMATION (two sources) that yes, TAR 16 was filming there on Sunday AM 12/20. Teams entered thru the main visitor parking lot, and apparently went directly to YODA. Storm Troopers were definitely involved as well. And best of all, GEORGE LUCAS and other key executives were there as well.

Here are some of the sights we may see:

YODA is just off the main parking entrance:



Just behind is the main lobby:



They could have then gone around the corner to here:



Which would have led them to this stunning view of the Palace of Fine Arts--wouldn't this be a perfect stand-up shot for Phil??  :yess:

Our second stop was Coit Tower, thanks to tweets like this one:

Quote
joelwhitaker Amazing Race contestants just completed near-final stage by rappelling up San Francisco's Coit Tower! http://twitpic.com/udts2   half a minute ago from Echofon

http://twitter.com/joelwhitaker



They will have an amazing view of the whole city from the top...

But since we already had onsite confirmation of filming occuring on the day, we didn't need to reconfirm. But Chateau got lots of lovely shadows!!

Confirming that some filming did occur there...last "teams" reported through about 45 minutes ago... crews now dismantling the equiptment.

Third stop was the Great American Music Hall: based on this:


I spoke to someone else in San Fran who saw the cowboys around the Great American Music Hall, which is on O'Farrell Street. They said they were very frantic and tried to get a cab but there was someone in it. They tried to get the people to give up the cab but they wouldn't so they ran to the next street over, Geary Street and caught a cab there.

I don't know if there was something at the Music Hall or if it was just the nearest landmark to describe where they were. Here is a map of it in comparison to Coit Tower. Notice that it is towards heading back in the direction of Hunter's Point, which would be further to the bottom right of what this map shows.



and all of this sighting:
http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,21193.msg505781.html#msg505781

Here are some pics:



And all of the streets are nearby...

But while a task here could certainly be possible... we do NOT have firm confirmation that this location was actually used yet. There are lots of theatres around that area...anything is still possible.

Great pictures Chateau and Peach! When I said I wasn't going to fly down to San Francisco  :plane: and poke about, it didn't occur to me that someone else would!  :notme: :noway:  I hope you got some useful information for your dedication and trouble. How was Hunter's Point anyway?   :didimiss:

Was that Chateau in the red jacket and dark pants? :hithere:

Thank you, peach and Chateau!

re: the Great American Music Hall. I'm thinking it was just a reference point for where the team was spotted. They ran to O'Farrell/Polk and then caught their taxi at Geary St.

Had a wonderful reply with more info from Kevin and Zhou from www.nohurrycurry.wordpress.com!!

They write:

Quote
We were about to leave Kekloksi Temple near Penang Hill around 11am on 12/14 when one team and its cameraman and coordinator hopped out of a taxi. A few minutes later two more teams showed up and each team was asking some locals for help. Eventually they all figured out they were in the wrong spot. I was standing next to one of the guys at this point (trying to offer my map but he was talking to a local), and I'm pretty sure they were all supposed to be at Kuan Yin Teng (Goddess of Mercy Temple), but am not 100%. A couple hours later we went to this temple and didn't see any trace of the race.


All we can remember about the teams was that there were three of them - one father/daughter team, one team of two younger guys, and one unknown. (Sending pics for review--peach)

.... They sent a few pics >>>( the last team to leave, since I was too excited that we were watching TAR to take pictures or video up to that point) is the father and daughter.

Unfortunately we didn't get to see a challenge of any sort, but hope this is helpful anyway. Let us know if you need any more information.




Kevin and Zhou did not realize that they caught another team, we're thinking the one in blue with the white headband might be Jordan of the Frat brothers ..

After reviewing the pics from here, Kevin and Zhou felt that the three teams they saw were:

Quote
I looked at the pictures and one team was Mike and Louie - I believe they were the first to arrive. I'm pretty sure that the other team (the second to arrive) was the frat boys - the guy I stood next to was a young white guy who wasn't wearing a cowboy hat.

The third team was definitely a father/daughter team because the coordinator kept telling the daughter to make sure she stuck together with her dad.

After taking another look, they wrote:

Quote
I now see the other racer you're talking about - that wasn't the young guy I referred to in an earlier email, but it looks it must be his teammate. Didn't even realize that team was still there at that point. Good spot!


Thank you guys SO much, these are a big help!! :waves:

Interesting pictures! I see the other frat brother behind Jordan in the first two pics. You can just see a little bit of his face. They seem to be talking to the father (Steve Smith) in the black shirt in the first two pics, then Jordan runs around to the other side of the cab and is talking to him through the car window while Allie gets into the cab. Looks to me like a possible alliance between those two teams - unless it's an argument about something that's happened.  

In that small cab, that's got to be a cramped ride with a driver, two racers and the two camera and sound guys and their equipment.

There is someone behind...but I don't think it is the brother...I see a reddish beard I think?

You may be right about the reddish beard. That could make him the sound guy following the father/daughter team and we don't see him after that because he's inside the cab.

Hey. So this confirms that Steve and Allie were not decoys at this point so does that mean Carol and Brandy go out 6th?

Beside the "blonde guy" sighting that may be Steve or Carol, Carol and Brandy where spotted in Singapore selling ice-cream. why do you automatically assume that only of them reach Singapore?
Who told you that the cowboys and miss South Carolina are not decoys in San Francisco? they were not spotted in any of the Asian legs.

The Cowboys were spotted multiple times in Singapore , the San Fran Twitter wrote that his girlfriend said the couple in red at Coit Tower was indeed Caitlin and Brent so at this point who knows? Read below, could be Caitlin and Brent where wearing blue so we still have a red team couple sighting in Sentosa...not sure which team that might be?
We also have 2 girls spotted at the Singapore Flyer. I wouldn't assume anything.

Quote
In fact, n the tube behind us, we could see two young girls were being filmed doing just that. Since we envisioned that the dinner would be an occassion for romance and dinner, and the girls were rather shoddily-dressed, we were trying to come up with scenarios for what was going on. Was it a reality TV show? It turns out we were close -- a Hong Kong Travel show was filming its Singapore adventure

         
Quote
Well, the first team I saw were two big guys wearing blue and the second team were a couple. The male is blonde-haired and the female is a brunette.

I did not realise that they were filming the amazing race until the 2nd sighting, therfore no pictures were taken.

I was at the singapore flyer at about 11am, 16 dec 2009, when i saw the 1st group, male/female team(young couple, long hair girl dressed in blue).
As the flyer was closed for shooting until 12.30pm, my family and i proceeded to sentosa's underwater world, where we spotted the 2nd group, male/male group (middle aged man, dressed in blue too.) wondering around Rasa Sentosa Hotel car park at abt 1pm, same day.
 
http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,21193.msg503507.html#msg503507


and then again Carol and Brandy were identified in grey selling ice cream

Quote
well, according to her, there were 2 females, should be wearing grey though she wasn't really sure now. They were selling ice cream and it was about 11+ am. =)
