*DanielleVarey :The gate they were by in the picture was not the gate they went and sat next to. They were checking departure boards there. So who knows
*ob-la-di-ob-la-da --John Joo said:Got stopped by the Amazing Race crew in downtown LA and signed a release form. Wonder if I'm gonna be on it. Look for the dude in a big white SUV that refuses to give a couple of ladies a ride. Hahaha.

Ryan83:TheBlotSays: Just found out the cast of the Amazing Race was on my friend's flight to Chile last weekend. Not sure if its the current cast or next season
RE:response: @walkingpneumoni Not sure, sorry! The flight was last Sat. He originated out of Chicago, but its very likely he stopped in Miami.Blog find
The Amazing Race came to town - we spent a whole lunchtime in a waiting for the couples to come running by chased by their out of breath cameraman and soundman. It was funny (in a slightly cruel way) to see the teams that went down streets that none of the others had chosen. Losers. How we laughed as we sipped our beers.
woden: Looks like Cardonal Market
Phil filming in Valparaiso, Chile
challenge set up, teams had to paint the white portions of the walls
Slowhatch: I found a picture
of the market; the sign reads Templeman, one of the main drags of Old Town. The cross-street? Maybe...San Enrique.
*OK, I think I've got it. Enlarge the pictures here
; it's the building behind San Luis Gonazga church at the top of Cerro Alegre. The cross street is Galos. Blog find:
The Amazing race was being filmed whie wer were in town, and Elise had the pleasure of seeing many moronic Americans carrying paint tins up the hills. We were chased away every time we went for our cameras, so you`ll have to watch all of season 27 to check the truthfulness of this.
