The archway and rows of statues look like the Khai Dinh mausoleum (photo source).

Could someone check who's the girl who refuses to help Joey and Richard when their car gets stuck?

Wait, everyone is safe in Indonesia?!
Ryot/Liberty: Safe until Vietnam (he's the one who refuses to help Joey, right?)
Anastasia/Chris: Safe until Vietnam
Tracy/Anne-Marie: Safe until Hong Kong
Mo/Mos: Safe until Pit Stop in desert
Sam/Renae: Safe until South Africa
Dave/Kelly: Safe until South Africa
Alana/Mel: Safe until South Africa
Sam/Renae: Safe until South Africa
Joey/Richard: Safe until South Africa
Tyler/Nathan: Safe until South Africa
Matt/Tom: Safe until Israel

ZS-CVA is reigstered under Skydive Cape Town...

I believe it's Mel who says no one will jump out and help Joey & Richard.

I too think it's Ryot who denies Joey's help at the Roadblock in Vietnam. :tup:

Remember the north end of Strelecky Ostrov in Prague, where FT/BE were eliminated? The archery task looks similar: compare the trees and branches (photo source).

Indonesia is a non-elimination. I am pretty damn sure of that. And all evidence points to Ryot and Liberty going 1st in Vietnam, Anne-Marie and Tracy going 2nd in China, and 9 teams in Jo'Burg, 8 teams in Cape Town - intersection also here - and so goes from there...

Based on the cities known and the preview's list of countries, this looks likely to be our route:

S: Melbourne
1: Lombok, Indonesia
2: Vung Tau, Vietnam
3: Hue, Vietnam
4: Macau, China (via Hong Kong)
5: Garden Route, South Africa
6: Cape Town, South Africa
7: Unknown city in the Netherlands (via Frankfurt, Germany) [PLEASE let it be Rotterdam!]
8: Prague, Czech Republic
9: Krakow, Poland
10: Tel Aviv/Dead Sea, Israel
11: Unknown city in Sri Lanka
12: Perth, Australia (via Singapore)

If we've got 13 episodes instead, I'd bet on Singapore and Perth being two separate episodes as opposed to any of the other options (it's definitely not Hong Kong, and it seems to be a deliberate recurring joke to sidestep Frankfurt -- TAR9 to Stuttgart, TAR16 to Hamburg, TARA2 to Prague). The complete lack of spoilers between the flight to Frankfurt and departing Israel means the route is speculative, but I can't see any reason why you would go from Germany to the eastern European pair before backtracking to the Netherlands and ducking down to Israel... unless the "fly to Israel" clue is a morbid tie-in to The Diary of Anne Frank or something, and even then Auschwitz is just as appropriate, perhaps even more so.

Something I just noticed: Spoilers suggest Ryot/Liberty are the first team booted. Since we know everyone gets to Vietnam, it seems they get booted in Week 2 (nobody in their right mind would start a season with back-to-back NELs, especially in the show's first season). But isn't that Ryot refusing to help Joey in their commercial? She's holding one of the coins from the task Natalie quit on TAR Asia, which would place it in Hue... and in Leg 3.

I don't think there are 2 legs in Vietnam. Are we 100% sure of that?

Yes, there are two Vietnam RoadBlocks in the previews -- the ox task, with a Big W team member clearly shouting assistance from the side of the field; and the coin task from TARA3's Hue leg.

...And before you suggest it's a two-RB leg, the same Big W lady is seen doing both tasks.

Is the ox-task definitely a RB, when both ladies are working in the field with the ox, and so are Alana and Mel, and Ryot and Liberty?.......!!! I think it's more likely a Detour at Vung Tau, as was the task for TAR5 Philipines

I'm thinking that Vung Tau is a Detour, ox task or the carrying chickens...whereas the RB is the coins and stairs at the Khai Sanh Mausoleum...

i think vietnam is one leg based on the previews, i see the hue imperial city as the pit stop, and the leg would probably go like this:

fly to hcmc
some random task at hcmc
bus to hue (?)
hue (detour: chickens (seen in the promos) or buffalos (episode 2 teaser) )
hue (tomb roadblock)
hue (imperial palace pit stop)

That's just the assumption at the moment. I agree with immabe, I think Vietnam is one leg, why would there be two non-eliminations in Leg 1 and 3, especially since spoilers/spec don't agree

Vietnam just being one leg would also give us the extra room we need for Singapore, since Grant confirmed in the intro that there are 12 legs:

1. Lombok, Indonesia
2. Hue, Vietnam
3. Macau, China (via Hong Kong)
4. Garden Route, South Africa
5. Cape Town, South Africa
6. ??, Netherlands (via Frankfurt, Germany)
7. Prague, Czech Republic
8. Krakow, Poland
9. Masada, Israel
10. Colombo, Sri Lanka (I see it being more likely they give us this excellent leg instead of the subpar Galle leg)
11. Singapore
12. Perth, Australia

We have this article that says EGYPT:

Quote
The result is a divergent list of destinations that includes two countries previously not visited by the US mother ship. Israel, Indonesia and Egypt are among the locations visited by the Australian show.

But we have no other confirmation yet, unless you count the reoccuring Sphinx in the promos :lol:

And we know the rest because we have carefully read the spoiler thread and looked at the pictures:tup:

Egypt is definitely FALSE. We know from Grant that there are 12 countries on the route, and all of them -- Indonesia, Vietnam, China, South Africa, Germany, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Poland, Israel, Sri Lanka, Singapore, and Australia -- are mentioned by name in the preview commercials.

We know it's Masada because Grant's "watch out world, the Aussies are coming!" is filmed on the Israeli side of the Dead Sea near Masada. And we know the Garden Route is there because the shots we've seen of the South Africa legs match up to those from TAR Israel's first leg, which went to said Garden Route.
