Georgia, do you have any idea how many teams are  now being selected from the applications and how many are solicited by the show.  It seems to me that the trend is toward soliciting more teams through agents and outside sources and less through the casting calls and applications.  I have read alot of interviews with past contestants and alot of them say that they were solicted to appear on the show.  A good number of them had never even seen the show.  Maybe you have a ratio.

This has to be the most rural starting location ever, yet it is the most spoiled.

I disagree.........the start to TAR2, was out in the desert of Nevada.....60 or 70 miles from Las Vegas.

And I think Chateau's starting line photos for TAR15 probably gave us the most spoiled start. Although TAR8 was blown open pretty early too. The video of teams headed to the starting line this AM was a first, though.

Another very "rural" start was TAR 3 in the middle of the Everglades.

Just wondering how they scout for each leg location before each season starts? Is it possible they already have been to the places a couple of seasons in advance? Thus the reason for the many Indian legs and Chinese legs in the last few seasons? Or do they prepare one season at a time and do a "trial-run" in the correct order beforehand?

If we are talking TAR 17, we don't know yet.

Possibly some extra tasks Britain, possibly leg 2 is Ghana.

I assumed he was asking about TAR6 from his comments upthread. Peach/Hooky, I was not in anyway commenting about TAR`17.

China Rush is over. For the next four days or so, assume Asia sightings are TARA.

This hasn't have to do with the current filming,  but I wanted to point out that Episode 12: All-Stars, when the teams were flying from China to Guam, Phil mistakenly said that Guam is an island in the South Pacific.  That is incorrect here! Guam is in the North Pacific, too north to be in the South Pacific.  I just wanted to point that out.

I was just re-watching that episode a few weeks ago and I heard Phil say that and was amazed at such a glaring mistake.  Good catch, mjriches2005.

Also another thing I noticed, during Episode 2: Season 1, when teams left Zambia to get back to South Africa to fly to Paris they are driving to Johannesburg.  I have the 1st season on DVD and it doesn't show them flying between Zambia back to South Africa, was it cut or did they drive back to Johannesburg by driving through Zimbabwe or Botswana?  :ot:

Not sure if they flew or drove the whole way, but the Detour was filmed in Botswana, I believe.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!
