I have to agree... think about it. Even with last season, the NELs were F8, F6, F4. This season when the first NEL was F9 I thought, maybe they're gonna make it F9, F7, F5 this season. When we learned about two St. Petersburg my suspicions grew, and voila, we had a F7 NEL... so I'm leaning towards a F5 NEL with both HK and SK being elimination legs.

Which begs the need for a fifth team who had not been spotted yet.

The lack of information for Legs 8 and 9 poses a huge problem.

Well I am sorry we dont have enough information for you. If you want to understand how we work around here, I suggest you read this thread from the very beginning. You can see how we sift the wheat from all the chaff. Also you can read the Speculation thread. We started all this for TAR17 back in mid May.

Keep a watch on here this month, TAR18 will start before TAR17 finishes airing. Join in the hunt for info.

A couple of years back, this site had the entire correct boot list.....almost as soon as they finished filming the show.......that was a pretty boring Amazing Race to watch that year.

Well excuse me, Doc, for stepping on your turf. I know how things work on RFF. I've been watching you guys before I joined. I was simply making a statement.

Everybody here sure is friendly.
We need to know who exists in the Oman and Bangledesh legs in order to understand who the assumed final five teams are in Hong Kong, assuming that the Hong Kong photo of N\K, B\C, and J\T is accurate

So....reportedly, the ES teams did a decoy run at LAX.

Sorry, Peach, but just to clarify...does this mean that just decoys ran a final leg in LA (explaining why production was spotted there)  or did the race actually end in LA and in addition to the racers, there were some ES teams running decoy?  If so, how many teams were running around LA without being seen by anyone?!

I am also hearing rumors that even production could start doing some decoy runs.

We are just getting too good. :lol:

Okay Houston...we have a problem.

I have been attempting to follow up with all our remaining spoiler sources.

The sighting of Chad/Stephanie in Oman can no longer be considered valid.

I resent the source some photos (at the time of the first contact we had only airport photos for comparison).

HE HAS KINDLY JUST REPLIED THAT HE MET JILL AND THOMAS.

This puts Chad and Stephanie back in the "not seen after" file and puts them AT RISK FOR ELIMINATION THIS WEEK BASED ON SIGHTINGS.

Sorry for any confusion...this does happen, sources do their best based on the info we have at the time, just glad we can reevaluate.

Uh-oh.  So maybe Chad & Stephanie go out this leg.  I wouldn't be upset, however, if it happened -- and I'm glad if it means Gary & Mallory might be able to stick around.

According to an ex-girlfriend of a friend of a friend's cousin, they ended in Santa Barbara, California.

I copied this over from the TAR 17 speculation thread though I'm not sure it qualifies as a real live sighting. Peach, move it if you think it needs to be elsewhere.

I found this intriguing little message on Suite101.com from last July at http://www.suite101.com/content/amazing-race-17-gets-started-in-gloucester-boston-massachusetts-a241709.

does any one know if TAR 18 is filming?
I saw some people running in Santa Barbara Califonia and clearly saw one gilr holding the TAR clue.
then I follow them to a alice keck park in Santa Barbara and there was huge bolling pins and so I'm just wondering


Unfortunately, the person is listed as "guest" so we won't be able to follow up on it. Steven Fife at the Suite101.com web site politely said it was probably a local race. He is quite possibly right since July is not when TAR 17 (or 18) was run, however if the guest was mentioning something that was seen a month earlier in June, then this report gets much more interesting. Given that 5 of the last 6 participants are "gilrs" that is in the report's favor. 

Here are a couple of links to Alice Keck park:
http://www.santabarbara.com/activities/parks/alicekeck/
http://www.rth.org/sb/

It does look like a place that could be used for a detour/roadblock. Lots of trees and trails for a small city block sized park that might briefly make it hard to find the detour/roadblock. Huge bowling pins might be unlikely for a local TAR knock off race. You can reserve the park of events/weddings at http://www.santabarbaraca.gov/eRecreation/Facilities/FacilitiesDetail.asp?FacilityId=16. It has a calendar but doesn't allow you to go back into the past.

I'd rate this as a low probability of being the real TAR, but thus far, it's the only possible indication of the finish line location I've seen.
