wow 2/3 shots for an F/F Team if that is legit  :hearts:  :jumpy:  :wohoo:
Hopefully, it won't turn into All-Stars 2.0 with the young couple taking it.

But it just occurred to me.  With all four teams arriving in the same city on the same flight, how the hell does the straggling team fall behind six hours?!

Traffic? Most signs in Korea are not in English, it's easy to get lost.

If tatooed team appear in Hong Kong leg,then it means there will be an non-emilination leg in Ghana,looks like so early for an non-emiliantion leg(TAR15 leg1 real pitstop is in USA,emiliante Eric and Lisa).

I know I am about 18 days behind reading the AR17 threads, but the boat I saw in the 7 minute 52 second Gloucester ship parade was clearly named "Lady S". The commentator with the Boston accent (I guess it's Capt. Joe) just saw it wrong. This is inconsequential, but it was not the "lady J." I want to be among those commending Capt. Joe for that super video.

Actually, apskip, I think Capt. Joe knows his boats pretty well.  Take another look.



EDIT:  I realize it's still a little blurry, but notice the "J" has the same flourish on top as the "L"

So if they're on the way back to the USA - here are the direct flights from Seoul today. I would guess that you would be more likely to see production than racers in the airports today:

               Arr.  Flight  East coast time
Dallas         09:45 KE 31  10:45
Atlanta        11:00 KE 35  11:00
Chicago        10:15 KE 37  11:15

Washington DC  11:25 KE 93  11:25
New York (JFK) 11:55 KE 81  11:55
LA             10:10 KE 17  13:10
LA             11:30 OZ 202 14:30
Seattle        12:25 KE 19  15:25
Detroit        18:00 DL 158 18:00
LA             15:10 KE 11  18:10
LA             15:20 OZ 204 18:20
New York (JFK) 20:30 KE 85  20:30
Toronto        20:55 KE 73  20:55
LA             18:40 OZ 286 21:40
New York (JFK) 21:00 OZ 222 21:00
LA             20:00 KE 11  23:00


I left out SF because it was last years final city...

Remember we should also be looking for the eliminated teams to be back in the US very soon too. They would travel ahead of the racing teams.

Can someone help me out with this?

HOW could teams get from Seoul to Melbourne based on the info we have? Does the timeline allow it even theoretically? Are there flights even that would work??  I would like to rule this out based on the info we have from Korea.

I already have.  I think someone's either trying to throw you and the other detectives off, or that was some local thing going on.

Judging from the F3 we might be having, I'm a bit sad to find out that Gary & Mallory went out, possibly before the F4 (as I just don't see them being that fourth team).  Steve & Josh and Mel & Mike excepted, I've always loved and rooted for the parent/child teams.

I agree, but for completeness sake I want to KNOW it was impossible.

Also, just on general principles, if I was in LAX I would be hypervigilant. :lol:

Maybe Coutzy could try to track down the  Melbourne Tweeter.  He has a FB page, but friends only, and I don't have a lot of time to track him down.  He seems genuine, but no real details have emerged yet.

Same, and I don't even live in L.A.

So I'm still confused as to whether the teams are doing one more leg in Seoul or are on the way back to America for the final leg by now.

Sent him a reply tweet, no response yet, although in all fairness I sent it at 11:30 PM...

As far as local things go, there has been nothing for several months that would have TV cameras following, unless there is some Amazing Race: Australia that I do not know about (Highly unlikely)

On the flight with the last two remaining teams of the future season of The Amazing Race from Seoul to LA. Such a rush.
  17 minutes ago  via txt 

Last 2 teams????

I see a flight to Anchorage leaving Seoul about that time, but nothing directly to LAX.

And maybe "last two remaining teams" are really two decoy teams.

I think she posted as they ARRIVED in LAX. Should be happening now, as  production was spotted about 945.

TWO teams on the flight also raises the possibility of decoys. Am asking for info...

They would never send decoy teams to where they could not be at the finish line. Could they be connecting to another city from LAX? It was not clear to me if production was seen outside the airport.

 Might they have arrived on Korean Air 17?  It was scheduled in at 10:10AM PT today, but arrived at 8:33AM.

Oh.  Flight KE17 landed at 8:33, so that's probably it.

If there were only 2 teams on the Korean Air flight, then the 3rd team might be on the next flight which is  Asiana 202 that should have arrived around 11:45AM PT.

I didn't say that...I meant that perhaps the two on her flight were the decoy teams. From what we know of Korea, the final 3 were pretty tightly bunched, I would think they might all be on the same flight. There are a couple of flights today that are possible though.

Yes. Production was seen exiting customs about 0945 PST, looking rather surprised that their vans were not there...which would be nicely explained by the early arrival time. :tup:

Could it be that only 2 teams managed to get seats on the flight to LAX? Just like the S10 finale, I mean.

Depends on whether or not they had camera crews with them.  I remember that last season, Louie & Michael were on the same flight to San Francisco as Brent & Caite, Jet & Cord, and Dan & Jordan, and while the latter three teams were seen with camera crews, the detectives weren't.

So if the two teams had no camera crews, they're decoys.  Though there is a possibility of decoys with camera crews.

Speculating on the final mat location, the Dodgers are out of town so Dodger Stadium would be available.  LA has no NFL teams but the Coliseum and the Rose Bowl would offer protected locations.  Or they could even go to Anaheim.

Of course there are plenty of non-stadium locations available also.
