This is probably nothing but since it is in Japanese it piqued my interest. Hopefully someone can contribute a good translation.

朝からアメリカ人にあーだこーだ言われ、ひと息ついた時先輩に「あれって、CSでやってるAmazing Raceじゃない?!」と言われた 調べたら先月ケアンズで観たアメリカのテレビ番組でした。しかもうちが話した親子、HPに載ってんやん

Step aside everyone, here's the translation:

Some Americans have been gabbing away at me all morning, but when we got a bit of a break, someone senior to me said "Hey, isn't that the Amazing Race that's on C(B)S?" So I looked it up, and sure enough, it was the American TV show that we watched in Cairns (Australia) last month. Not only that, the parent/child team I was talking about is featured on the home page (HP).

It's not clear what homepage this was referring to.

Was this a Tweet?  Do you have the Twitter user name of the person who tweeted this?  I can find out more if you want.

So that's what あーだこーだ means. Oh well, at least my attempt at a translation wasn't that far. :P
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Found it!  Looks like the owner is some girl? who lives in the Chiba prefecture, just east of the Tokyo prefecture.

I could go find out, but I don't think this is a TAR18 lead.

BTW, is TAR17 being shown in Australia pretty much at the same time as it is in the US? (perhaps with a few days delay, like it is in AXN all over Asia except Japan?)

Well, I sure hope she saw some teams.....otherwise it doesnt make much sense. Film crews do not travel without the teams. WRP has been known to use two different production crews.....leapfrogging cities to set things up and be ready for when the teams arrive to coordinate the tasks and challenges.


This was posted at 2:30 pm, Hong Kong time. There was a flight that arrived in HK from Singapore at 2 pm. Looks like she might have been on her way to Beijing......that flight left at 3:00 pm.....so you might not hear from here till she gets there....if that is where she was going.

Kenchan, Australia watches the show a couple of days behind the US this season. The episode shown this Sunday in America will be shown in Australia on Thursday.

Thanks ovalorange!  That's similar to AXN in Southeast/South Asia. The first time I actually saw TAR was season one on AXN, when I was visiting India. It was the rat temple episode.  How befitting!

Anyway, I found one more tweet, but I am guessing she learned about the TAR18 racers visiting Tokyo either through my fan community on mixi, or through this thread:

Where the heck did you get that idea? Since you didnt put your location on your profile, I am going to assume you are a native english speaker.

Maybe: Zev and Justin, Cowboys, Gary and Mallory

I feel your pain, Peach. Working across the date line is driving me nuts. I have to have a window open to a World Clock website all the time........just so I can what time it is.....lol

My bad on this one! I put the wrong day of the week on the Narita sighting - which I just corrected... Sorry about that.

possibly they're the crew in charge of tasks for the next location.

and without sightings until now, it's pretty much leaning to a double leg in japan i think...

Yep, she found it on my community, so this is a circular reference.  It's funny tho - she just tweeted that she was excited she got a tweet from me. How cute...  :-[
