He "meant" exactly what he said.

So the next leg should start around noon tomorrow?

The next leg will start when Production wants it to start, regardless of the time length of the pit stop.

most of the recent Pit Stops haven't been 12 hours long
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

2.25am in the morning, if a 12-hr-pitstop....I hope someone can find where they're off to next...If NZ (Auckland etc), I'll be there

get Coutzy and company to stake out at Melbourne, possibly the MCG

I'm in Melbourne if they come down here!!!   :tup:

no, that was Auckland

We have our 1st Pitstop... so does that mean we will be able to figure out the 1st team eliminated by tonight and wont have to wait until teams start next leg?

wow, I can feel for the editors and all the work they have to put in to sum up all of these events in less than 50 minutes of footage, hopefully we'll get another 90-minute premiere

if there is a starting line task, then it'll definitely be 90 minutes

Would they do a To Be Continued leg this early in the race?

Could be edited into an episode similar to the TAR 15 premirere

Starting line elimination , than a non-elimination.

In this case though, a TBC leg..

well didn't peach say the racers kept running away from Phil after checking in?

and 4 people purchased tickets for something?

Maybe those things are unrelated.... i just got a To Be Continued vibe

There's no rule that they have to get to the first elimination on the first night, even if it is a TBC leg or a NEL with an elimination on a second leg.

When I saw Peach's mention that four teams had bought Captain Cook's tour tickets, that made me think there is a TBC, and that the mention of the Express Pass goes to the first team that finds Phil, not necessarily the winner of the leg. Peach did not say teams were running away from Phil, but she did say the teams are not spending very much time with him. But she did say there was a local greeter -- a male surfer; so who knows at the moment if this was a complete leg with an elimination, an NEL or a TBC.

hahaha

that facebook status about the guy having to sign a waiver for pointing Kynt and Vyxsin in the right direction..

than right after it, Peach posts that they checked in X_X haha

looks like Cowboys were last..

I really hope they didnt half ass it so he could go home to his wife and honeymoon... just so they could get some publicity.. Other teams would have enjoyed the opportunity

This will be no different than any other season. There will be a sequester of eliminated teams. So I seriously doubt the Cowboys would half-ass it.  That would be totally contrary to everything they've shown in the past, and what they've said in the past about their competitiveness.

If Mel-Mike haven't been seen after the apparent roadblock task, then they may in face be the last team to arrive.
