Could Sao Tome & Principe be the location of Sequesterville?

i am confused, looking at all the posts here: can we confirm that the 1st team eliminated is the asian father and son team, or am i really in a confused state.

Right now, I'd say the confused state option would be the better of the two options.

Basically, we know nothing, except that Stonehenge was the first destination.
They'll show up in Asia probably.

Stonehenge is the last known destination. The person who claimed to have seen the teams at Stonehenge and gave us an order of elimination has since admitted it was fake and they made it all up. A few possible sightings since, but nothing yet confirmed.

The Heathrow sighting could have been earlier and later posted.

The full translation of the latest Tweet is:
Amazing race 17! VISITED MY COUNTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nine teams made in 8 teams. 8 minutes Aug via web

not that it clears up much :lol:

I think it is another race, not our race.  :duno:

I agree. Cuz that would mean that it would have to be Leg 3 at least.

It states the colors that had been mentioned numerous times.

Two Asians in dark blue. Two males in black. Two males in orange. Four all-female teams (blue, green, pink, brown). A male in while and a girl in purple. And I don't understand the other one.

Definitly looks like our race :)

Looks like Race producers are brining the race to more exotic and unknown places such as Luxembourg and Sao Tome and Principe.

Could Sao Tome & Principe be the location of Sequesterville?

I doubt, it as its really hard to get there, and 1 leg there is already hard to do.

Just found a palace in Portugal on wikipedia, called "Palace of the Dukes of Braganza" in the Guimaraes Municipality.  There is a parish called Sao Tome de Abacao.  The nearest major airport is in Porto and Luxair flies there as well. Could the tweet came from Portugal and not Sao Tome & Principe?

"male purple on purple and white female in a team mom in black on black child in blue."

and

"sorry for bad grammar"


But again, most of this could have come from previous spoilers found HERE.

Agreed, but the Portugese can be slightly different in Sao Tome.

Where is this "HERE" at?

or NOT. This person is posting using info readily available on our site. Don't be so quick to believe every word, it is our job to question, analyze and make a judgement call as to whether it is valid or not.

My guess based on the info so far?? NOT.

Looking at the location of Salisbury, I think two legs in UK is feasible.

There are two possibilities:

1. TAR went back into London. Next leg teams could take a train to Belgium or take a plane out of Heathrow to who knows where.

2. TAR went to Wales and later flew out of Bristol Airport, with considerably less traffic than Heathrow (and thus a lower chance of being sighted).

Or take a ferry to Ireland, or a train to Scotland, or fly out of Manchester (prob not Bristol). Or the Chunnel to wherever.

I'll be surprised if we EVER see a Belgian leg.

Anywhere is the key! :lol:

Okay...so we have a reference from pink team asking someone at the airport where the Congo is (they can see their passport visas, including the extras)

We have someone twittering about Sao Tome

And now a possible reference to a sighting in Accra, Ghana.

Anyone else getting a theme here? :lol:

All of these places are in geographical proximity, so we need to watch this area closely.

I believe the Ghana one is 100% real.  Sao Tome and Congo, not!
