So, given that the starting line is at Boston, we may see a European start! But if that volcano is still there, I'm guessing Central America islands!

What??? we know the starting line? It hasn't even begun and I'm already behind?  :umn:

Maybe Canada? A lot of flights into Toronto today.

Though, it's an Eastward race. If they do fly to Canada, they'll have to fly to Europe for the next legs. But  The path to Europe is kinda shaky and unstable due to the ash thingy (if it's still on). So, I **speculate** it's NOT Canada.

OR Canada, then fly to South America, but I don't **think** so.

I thought it was determined on the Tweets thread? ???

So GonzaloChileno wins? Congrats on winning that Eyjafjallajokull ash! :snicker:

I must say this is one of the best start-city/first-destination combinations ever. We haven't had an epic start since TAR 2's Cristo Redemptor first clue.

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

I was thinking about this earlier tonight, and I can't believe TAR hadn't gone to Stonehenge in sixteen full seasons. About time they went there.

Maybe they were just saving it for later. :lol:

So, to stay on topic; next betting question:

What tasks will appear in the 90-minute premier?
Detour, Roadblock?

Will we find out what the new twist does in the first episode?

Will we get another "obvious" edit of the F4(or 5)?

Will we get more screamers (Meredith, Victoria, etc.) this season?
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

Roadblock and a general task, as has been customary for the past 3 seasons.

Will we find out what the new twist does in the first episode? Yes (otherwise later viewers will be confused)

Will we get another "obvious" edit of the F4(or 5)? I see a lot of emphasis on the FF teams. Too much emphasis causes hype, which leads to backlash, just saying.

Will we get more screamers (Meredith, Victoria, etc.) this season? Define screaming. Bickering, yes. Complaining, probably.

I mean people that continuously scream to their partners (and I meant Gretchen instead of Meredith xD)

Example:
Gretchen: Meredith! WE GOT A BAD ELEPHANT!
Victoria: NOOOO!!! THEY'RE GONA TAKE IT!!!!! JOOOOOOOOOOOHNNNNNNNNN!!!
(Jor?)Dan: I LOVE YOU BRO!!!!!




and last, but not least:

Karyn: LEENNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEYYYYYYY!!!!

I'd really like to see a Detour AND a Roadblock. If the spoilers from the first leg are correct, there wouldn't be enough time for an overnight rest, so with 90-minutes, they COULD have time to show both a Detour and a Roadblock. Probably a bit unlikely though. What I AM interested to see is the teams trying to get from Gloucester to Logan Airport, since I live outside of the city and I know getting to the airport can be a nightmare if you don't know where you're going.

Will we find out what the new twist does in the first episode?
I hope so.

Will we get another "obvious" edit of the F4(or 5)?
I hope not.

Will we get more screamers (Meredith, Victoria, etc.) this season?
There always is, so I'll say yeah.

Try unlikely.  Those turned out to be an elaborate hoax that someone blew right out of the water.

No, I didn't mean it that way. I mean that the flights carrying teams to their first destination (keeping it hidden, just in case someone comes to the spoilers board expecting NOT to find spoilers...  :lol3: ) arrived at like 7 or 8 in the morning local time, so it wasn't like they were arriving at a time that was feasbile for TPTB to include an overnight rest. I was lurking around here when whatshisface unleashed his reign of fake first-leg spoilers amongst us all, so I do know what you're talking about. That's just not what I was refering to when I mentioned the spoilers.

(But I'll still hold out hope that with a 90-minute premier, we might might might see a Detour and a Roadblock in the same leg.  :tup: )
