TAR 10, leg 3 (Tom and Terry got rides on privately owned motorcycles, which was specifically prohibited in the clue, according to Wikipedia.)

The penalty for using privately owned transportation is 30 minutes.  I can't remember which season or leg at the moment, but I do remember Phil having to assess a penalty at the mat on a team for hitching a ride in a private vehicle.

Maybe TAR 12 Leg 6 with Nathan & Jennifer? But in their case they just had to do it over again.

credit to Peach for saying it first tho.

Yeah, Linda and Steve would've been slapped with time penalty if they didn't come in the last place on Leg 2 for a private transportation. But, it was a little strange because Kris used a private transportation as well (Linda wasn't the only one who got lost in the mountains!)

I guess you're right. That's a move I wouldn't do if I were in the race!

Anyways, Only a few days left then Its finally the start of the race!!! :wohoo:  :jumpy: :hearts: :yess:

I thought this should go here it is a review for episode 1:
TV Review: The Amazing Race Season 16 Premiere
Could you imagine walking a tightrope the length of a football field in Chile? That’s what 11 teams did on the 16th season premier of The Amazing Race (CBS, February 14 from 8-9 pm). The one team to finish first after 12 legs of the race will win one million dollars.
The show starts in downtown Los Angeles where the 11 teams were introduced. The teams included:
Caite and Brent – dating models (by the way, Caite was Miss South Carolina and was the beauty who said that there are many people in the US who don’t have maps and that’s why they can’t locate the USA on a map. A Youtube video with Caite’s answer went viral across the Internet)
Louis and Michael – detectives
Steve and Allie – father/daughter team
Jeff and Jordan – dating (they were both contestants on Big Brother and now are dating as a result of the show)
Monique and Shawne – "momtrepreneurs" (the two are mothers and attorneys)
Jet and Cord – cowboys
Andrian and Dana – childhood sweethearts now 17 years married
Jody and Shannon – grandmother/granddaughter team (interestingly, both ran in half-marathons and the grandmother is 71 years old)
Carol and Brandy – lesbian couple
Dan and Jordan – brothers (one is gay, the other isn’t)
Joe and Heidi – married couple
The couples were told that their first challenge was to take public transportation to LAX airport where they would get on a flight to Santiago, Chile.
Phil Keoghan, the show’s host, told the teams that only three will get on the first plane and all the remaining teams will go one hour later. It was exciting to watch as the 11 teams made their way to the airport.

At the airport, the cowboy team decided to change their money over. They exchanged it for Brazilian money instead of Chilean money, thinking it was the same thing. When they got to Chile they were surprised to learn that they were not allowed to board the bus with Brazilian money and had to change it over to Chilean.
The teams took a bus to Valparaiso, Chile, which is the San Francisco of South America, and were told to walk across a thin cable the size of a football field. As I watched this, I was on edge. Some teams made it across like a breeze, but others were shaking and actually fell off the cable! It was frightening. You almost felt as if it could have been you on the cable!
When that challenge was completed, the teams were told to ride a funicular to a residential area where they were to paint the outside of homes before getting their next clue. I never laughed so hard as when I saw one of the teams walking into a home and actually painting the interior. The Chilean painters were laughing and saying that they didn’t know what they were doing… it was hysterical!
I’ve been watching The Amazing Race with my family since it first went on the air. It’s one of those rare reality shows that we actually watch. We all enjoy it for the excitement and to get a sense of other cities around the globe. I’ll tell you one thing, after watching this show, I’m thinking that my next vacation will be in Chile!

Teams on the one flight connected in Miami, and might have made the mistake there.

But why a team could have done that whereever they exchanged currency when they should have remembered they were headed to Chile suggests a violation of the crucial rule to read the frakking clue completely.

Seems this answers this question:

At the airport, the cowboy team decided to change their money over. They exchanged it for Brazilian money instead of Chilean money, thinking it was the same thing. When they got to Chile they were surprised to learn that they were not allowed to board the bus with Brazilian money and had to change it over to Chilean.

Also very important: the review confirmed TAR 16 has 12 legs.

3 in SA, 3 in Europe, 1 in Africa, 4 in Asia, and the finale.

The EXIF on the Jody/Shannon shot must be whacked, right? Wulff Castle is the first destination in Chile, and they're already 3 hours behind?

Could we factor in the five hour time difference into it, which would give a Jody/Shannon (we're told it's Wulff Castle) shot at 13.04 and the Dana/Adrian shot at 14.31? The rest of the zipline photos were presumably taken between 14.42 and 15.01...

The Dallas (arrival scheduled 9.45am, actual 9.47am) and Miami (arrival scheduled 10.10am, actual 10.20am) flights arrive within half an hour of each other, so there could easily be catching up and all, and I'm not even sure if TPTB just pretended it was an hour's difference. But here are the three teams not seen together at the zipline: Carol/Brandy, Joe/Heidi, Jody/Shannon.

Just wondering - do these photos look like they were taken four and a half hours apart, shadow-wise?

The F4 and Jordan & Jeff were shown on a promo for this episode.

Man.  Jordan & Jeff aside, they're not even trying to hide their finalists anymore, are they?

How are 3 legs in South America and 3 legs in Europe confirmed? Aren't 4 legs in SA and 2 in Europe still a possibility? As far as I know, the destination of the fourth leg is still up for speculation, with the most likely candidate being Buenos Aires. Did I miss something? ???

I think the caption is wrong for the photo - if you look closely I think you can see the blue of a route info in Shannon's hand.

I believe a good amount of people are leaning towards another leg somewhere between Liverpool and Northern France

although, Buenos Aires is still a major possibility...  :duno:
