INCOMING FROM Camp Casey:

Quote
4 teams...at least one more task but i dont know where, 4th team lost in the sauce will be eliminated most likely they are at least 6 hrs behind. 2 all girl teams, 1 Male/ female team


So we've got two all-female teams still in the Race and probably making the Final 3!  Most likely they are the Pink team and the Blue one.

Hi all.  i am new to this forum.  I guess this means Conner and Jonathan are not around?

They're either in 4th and far behind -- but then again, there are several other teams, including an all-female team in lime green who might be far behind as well -- or are already out by this point.  My guess is that they're already out and are either decoys or a late Elimination station team.

I just wonder production will make the 4th team miss the flight so that they have to wait 6 hours for their emilination,it's reducing excitement  so much . And they have an nearly 24 hours pitstop,so they seems like can make teams start this leg at time they want.They don't want teams miss flight and then viewers easily to know which team emilinated early since season 12(unless TK and Rachel,Brad and Victoria ,they fall behind because they choose wrong flight).
What I guess is one of the F4 teams choose do a FF,so this team don't show in Camp Casy,and this leg is an non-emilination leg. The "4th" team 6 hrs later was decoy team.

Unlikely.  Decoys are always ahead of the teams, not behind them.  Only on the final leg could the decoys be behind the teams.

Maybe some another reason? I just think 6 hours is too huge...

How much of the legs do decoy teams miss, anyway? Especially on the last leg?

Just saw survivorsucks,someone saw tatooed team in Hong Kong.

Dunno if this helps y'all, but I saw a couple running from the HK airport to the Airport express train with a cameraman and another guy (producer I'm assuming) on Saturday. The guy asked the train attendant specifically for some sort of bus, so I'm guessing a clue told them they had to take something specific. Anyhow, the guy had distinctive hair (dreads or something similar) and the girl was heavily tattooed.

This is strange.Since we have lime green F/F team,green M/M team ,father/daughter team,kevin and kenny,tatooed team,purple M/F team,pink F/F team,blue F/F team,chad and stephanie in at least sweden  leg...so one non-emilination leg in England or Ghana?

Wow, so the F/F team in rose and blue and the African-American male-male team are the first two to go and Ghana has a non-elimination leg!  :lol:

Not true.

Not with a partner with dreadlocks.

Weren't the tattooed people supposed to be gone by now?  One of the first three out?  Maybe this means they got farther than we thought.

Just me thinking out of the box:
how feasible is for a racer to get dreadlocks during the race, specially if they go through a beachy location?

I get what Dan said, and will re-explain:

Like for example, Uchenna and Joyce had a haircut in India for a FF, right? Therefore, their appearance on the Starting Line will be very very different once they reach the Finish Line.

Putting it into the same context, maybe a dreadlock task?  (SPECULATE: You can do this once you're in Ghana, because it's their culture to dreadlock their hair?)

More speculation: There was a Fast Forward in Ghana and one team took it?

Well, not really speculation, but more of a question.

Did you see the picture I posted? He would have to use AMAZING HAIR RAPID-GRO!! :lol3:

I hear there may be a cameraguy with dreads though. Still don't think this was us. TARA maybe?

That's why I edited when I said it's more of a question than spec.

Okay, another question/spec - they really at F3 now? Do you guys have guesses where the final city is? West coast?

Perhaps the leg before the penultimate leg was a non-elimination(F4)?
