I don't trust him. A Roadblock and a detour in the first leg? No way.

Besides, tasks take a long time to complete.

His description of the teams seems accurate, and Old Sarum would make an excellent PitStop.

Well, maybe we're getting a longer (90 minute) season opener??

His team descriptions are nothing he couldn't have stolen from us. The geographical stuff is easy to make up from there. The tweets are coming WAY too fast. No way this is legit.

He doesn't seem to know a great deal about the race, judging by the way he's talking, so perhaps he thought it was, then realised it wasnt  :duno:? He did mention a cameraphone though, so we may have some more concrete evidence later.

I did question why he was posting all of this from "web". The first few tweets are from "UberTwitter", but that's it.

It strikes me as odd that he doesn't "know" alot about the race but is putting THE AMAZING RACE 17 in all of his tweets, so that if somebody were to search for that they would show up.

He's probably not an American - he spells colour correctly...

Actually he only mentioned TAR 17 a couple of times, and he says he has an iPad.  Can you tweet from those?

I would suggest going with real until we know otherwise. So far everything is consistent....but hoaxes have abounded so be alert to the possibility.

I have a feeling it will be the same country for back to back legs. Last 3 have been so.
Season 15- Chile
Season 14- Although started in Japan, first leg in Vietnam showed.
Season 13- Brazil

Fixed your post. I also like to add that it's unlikely TAR will spend two legs in an expensive country (though I could be wrong).

This has been an exciting first leg.   We got pictures and video of the pre-start "parade,"  then tweets and posts from a "Fern."

THIS! I totally want these! Yay Peach, were on the same page! They haven't been to Scotland in a long while (Season 3) or was that Ireland?!

What a great first leg! Hopefully JoeyHort can send us some great and revealing photos...Go back tommorow and see their next destination and Peach said she had some info as well to compile over the weekend!  :yess:

I don't trust him.

There are quite a few inconsistencies unresolved, aren't there?
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

I really don't believe its good to say how much we don't trust Joey when he's here trying to help us with information...Save it for later to judge, guys! We could have a solid helper right here with us now! Doesn't help!

Actually there are two "Joeys" posting.  "captjoe06" saw the teams leaving for the start near Boston and "joeyhort" saw the teams on the first leg in England.
