Just found out this Tae Kwon Do shit is for a segment on "The Amazing Race" and got cleared by SFC Pirtle to be in the film shoot Monday

everyone...please don't everyone rush to message these FB/Twitter posters. Rest assured it is already being done, and I hate to think we are deluging them with the same requests. Thanks.

There are no direct flight to Dhaka on June 8, but a number of 1 stop flights with Emirates, Gulfair, Qatar, Oman and JetAirways

The flight takes a minimum of 7 to 8 hrs.

ok I'm Indonesian so I'll translate: "Interview (he probably meant having a convo) for 5 minutes with the teams of the American reality show The Amazing Race in the departure hall of the Oman airport. Then I have to sign something (most likely the waiver). Not bad, I'll be on American tv". If you want, I can ask him additional details in Indonesian. PM me the name. Oh & I would need tips on what questions to ask aside from team colors & physical characteristics.

Thanks caper and krabbe!! Good job!! :jumpy:

just saying...that now that we know that TARA 4 is underway...and that this event will not occur until Monday...we are back to the fact that this could be either TARA or TAR.

Based on responses to my questions from the posters, I am going to stay with TAR for now though....

Guys i don't know anything about it but a girl  tweet this 15 min. ago.

so we went to LUNA PARK today and saw amazing race people running the race through luna park :)

The profile of the girl says that she is from Australia, and the Melbourne's Luna Park is the oldest in existence according to wikipedia, but still there's another one in Sidney...

Don't know anything else.... It could be TAR17 or TARA or nothing at all

I saw that and figured it was something local in Melbourne. We have more or less current TARA sightings in Penang and Borneo, so I doubt it's TARA. I didn't think it was TAR, but after thinking it over, if they left Bangladesh on the 9th (as the timeline suggests), it's possible they could have been in Melbourne on the 10th (or would it be the 11th already in Australia?).

Doesn't TAR end up at an amusement park at some point every season?  :fun

I think it's TARA,from Malaysia to Australia.If TAR17 departed  oman and flew to Bangladesh at the night of Jun 8,then they race in Bangladesh on Jun 9.It's no time for them race in Australia on Jun 10.

It's 5:35pm on the 11th in Melbourne.  :tup:

The racers would be having a miserable time if it is them, it's been cold and miserable all day.  :lol:

ETA: But I doubt it's them, the logistics of it all doesn't really add up. Bangladesh > Melbourne > Seoul just seems to far. Melbourne seems like too much of a divergence from what we know about the route.

I don't know if it was our TAR or not, but here's another tweet from someone who saw something at Luna Park:

pretty awesome day at luna park, saw amazing race peeps ;)

She's from Sydney so the Luna Park in Sydney seems more likely, but she could have been in Melbourne. The wikipedia entry for the Luna Park in Sydney doesn't seem all that impressive, but it probably looks good in person.  :tup:

Hmm.  It might be our race.  And hey, we do have yet to showcase Australia during its wintertime (though isn't it technically the tail end of autumn there?), so that'd be a nice contrast.

Oh!  Ask if the dark-haired girl had short or long hair.  Short means it's the pink girls.  Long means it's the blue girls.

Not short hair...just tucked back.


If that was taken in the Oman airport, then that tells us everything about which one he saw.

If earlier, then . . . I still don't know.

That picture was taken in Logan Airport, Boston, in the first leg of the race.

I just found this as I was searching twitter. I think it is Indonesian, but I'm have no idea what they're saying.

EDIT: I forgot to include the actual tweet! However, i found someone who could translate it, and it wasn't a spoiler.  :(

the guy just got back to me again, he talked to chad & stephanie at roughly 5.30 pm Oman time on June 8. C & S ended up taking the JetAir flight via Mumbai, the other girl-girl team took the qatar airways flight via doha.

JetAir via Mumbai seems to be
9W 539 Dep 12:35 (jun9) Arr 04:35am (jun9) 2hr30 flight time and
9W 276 Dep 9:30am (jun9) Arr 1:30pm (jun9) 3 hr3 flight time (arrive 63 min late)

Qatar via Doha
QR 169 Dep 11:36pm (jun8) Arr 11:48pm (jun8) 1hr12 flight time

earlier Qatar flight on jun8 is at 10am which doesn't fit  and I can only find a 9pm departure the next day from Doha onwards...
QR 344 Dep 9:16pm (jun9) Arr 5:19am (jun10) 5hr04 flight time

so the F/F flight looks like a bad mistake, or wrong information at the moment.   :( Will keep looking for other flights that would fit for them.

Flying via Doha, it seems it may be possible to land late afternoon in Dhaka on Jun9 if there is a second stopover via Bahrain or Dubai, but that is with Gulf Air or Emirates as far as I can see. Not sure if they code share with Qatar at all, but it seems very messy and unlikely. :duno:

Unless these teams were unexpectedly running well behind the other teams for some reason, because there are better connections earlier in the day, and with flights like this, it would be almost an 100% elimination... One would assume that production would usually reserve a few seats on various flights if it was believed that there could be difficulties procuring flights... :duno:

Saw this on FB an hour ago:

is one of the paramedics and PA member of this upcoming famous reality TV show that will be held in Albay "___THE AMAZING RACE___"

The person that posted that is in the Philippines.  Not sure if it's TARA4 or TAR17, if anything.

:colors :colors:

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, Can Anyone Check the Camarines Sur Wakeboarding site, TAR maybe there!

PM me if you need my help........... ;)


It's probably way too late, but I found the Camarines Sur Wakeboarding site at http://www.cwcwake.com/. I didn't see anything to suggest TAR 17 or TARA 4 was there, but they don't seem to have a webcam or anything like that.

I'm not quite sure if this is anything or not, but since I have two sources that say the same thing I decided to post it here.

Found a facebook post in Chinese from 10 minutes or so ago:

Amazing Race@HKG Airport~ 好在參賽者一出閘就衝左去巴士站, 無走上黎info搵我問路o者~~

which google translates to

Amazing Race @ HKG Airport ~ Fortunately participants a red gate on the left to the bus stop, no info onto Lebanon who want me to ask for o ~ ~

then I found 2 twitter messages in English from about the same time:

Reached HK! :D

And I see amazing race groups here! :D haha

I don't get the Lebanon reference - could be a mistranslation? As for TAR or TARA being at Hong Kong airport, could they be making a stop there to catch a flight to the next destination?
