I am confused. Which team is getting eliminated? Cowboys?

Apparently it's TBC, so nobody yet.

Oh God, I was hoping for a Pit Stop so I could check in!

I'm mighty exhausted! :lol:

Please go to the airport so I can catch a breather!

Don't know for sure if any team is getting eliminated yet. Which is why I worded my last post as last team to arrive.

There are a lot of comments about the Cowboys coming in last, but I'm saying I am not sure about that, and Mel-Mike haven't been accounted for at his moment.

But when the first teams arrived, did they rush off again? I thought G/M looked happy etc... Doesn't seem right. If this is a TBC... are they going back to the airport? Or back to Circular Quay?

^ Yeah. I was going to say that I swear I saw a post where Ron/Christina checked in and Mel/Mike weren't too far behind.

Maybe a new twist first place gets exempt from the TBC part?

I guess they would do a TBC so for atleast 2 episodes fans can see there favourite teams.

This sort of worries me.  Save for that mess of a 2-hour premiere in TAR15, there hasn't been a single 2 hour episode since 2007.  Based on when the TV schedule would allow for TAR to start, this is one season where one would not want to see a 2-hr episode.  But if there is one, I'd prefer the finale or mid-season.  Fair enough.

Since the TV schedule might "force" TAR to give us a 2-hour episode, I totally expect them to do a double episode in the first week, which sucks.  However, a leg one TBC is fitting, because the second hour would eliminate the second team (while canceling out one of 3 NEL).
Every reality star is someone's favorite

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

Yes.. people were wondering about that when the 1st 4 teams checked in..

They would walk up to Phil and than didn't talk with him for long. And than would quickly run away.. (now apparently the teams are heading back to Sydney)

Gary and Mallory possibly came in 1st and that explains the happiness /smiling. Maybe they got express pass?

Maybe they noticed too many people spoiling so they are trying to put us off!  :lol:

We need Peach to confirm if the teams rushed off after they got to pitstop or not.

Peach reported that Phil was seen taking a clue out from under the mat, and the only reason he's do that is because this leg is a TBC.

Speaking of which, I'm glad to see that the uberleg is still part of the game.  I've always wanted to see this used in the first leg, and apparently that is exactly what is happening.

Second, I suspect the entire uberleg will be in and around Sydney. The last time TAR was there, it was technically only a half of a leg (there was a detour in Hong Kong first and the roadblock was the famous "Slang" roadblock in Sdyney. The city more than deserves a full leg plus on TAR.

Still not convinced it is Double leg, unless it is a driving leg and that is why we havent seen anyone else.

peach already confirmed this..

the teams would check in with Phil, than would quickly run off.. At first im sure people thought the Team might have made a mistake and had to fix it, but alot of the teams started doing the same thing

Does this mean that Michael and Kevin are last? Hasn't it been confirmed that they are a part of this season?

Home from LA! Really dramatic flight! Medical emergency required landing mid way in Honolulu after dumping 30,000 pounds of fuel. Then storms near Fiji diverted us another 2 hours! Got to Sydney and no gate allocated! 8 teams of the "Amazing Race" were on my flight - two sitting next to me - drew maps and helped with their clues for Sydney! What a flight!
6 minutes ago
 -- AS POSTED BY WHITEBOARD (found on FB)

Well we saw for our own eyes that there was that flight that got redirected to Honolulu. So unless this is some uberfan trying to make us fall for this info, it sounds pretty legitimate.

Could explain the "lead" that Gary/Mallory, Kisha/Jen, Amanda/Kris and Zev/Justin had.. (the person did say 8 teams were on the flight though so idk. maybe there were really 7.. or just one of those 4 teams i mentioned caught up)

THANK YOU WHITE BOARD
WELCOME :jumpy:
