[
Marked for Elimination is a version of the non-elimination leg that requires the NEL team 2 incurr a 30-min penalty if they did not check in first in the following leg. This was originally the second version of the NEL, but it has been brought back.

I believe weihen said that was a miscommunication...let's check? I am not yet convinced of that unless there was something I missed. ???

I believe we had a witness who saw Kynt/Vyxsin arrive the next leg (not in first), allowing Kisha/Jen to check in ahead of them? I thought this was our confirmation of the return of the MFE penalty?


Again, I am not sure? I just remember weihen correcting himself here:

Some add information:
No speedbump this season,goth must come first next leg or they will receive a 30-mins  penalty.

I'm sorry he said he isn't sure about this...but he heard sth about 30mins.

So I think we need to see if weihen can confirm this now? Might be a MFE or might be a mistake penalty....just want to be SURE!!

Myanmar is not the kind of place for the race to visit right now, political unrest and controversy is still there.

I thnik it's a 24hrs pitstop...since teams started 4th leg in Lijiang right now after 3rd leg(this is not a rolling pitstop)...they should have a  long time rest.

Myanmar is highly unlikely.  Politically not the place to go, and not the easiest country to get permission to visit.

In the past 6 season, we've had 3-5 legs in Asia.  We've now had 4 so next leg could still be in Asia.  Europe is a very likely possibility.  The Middle East has lately been in the races filmed in the summer for some reason, so that seems a little less likely.

i think this is the right forum....says "speculation" and I'm completely speculating here but I found this article and wonder if it's clues of where the teams may be going this time.


“We’re thrilled the audience watching us sprint around the globe each week will continue to witness the breathtaking landscapes that serve as our backdrops, only now in high definition. Whether we’re racing alongside the crystal-white peaks of the Arctic Circle, the neon-lined skyscrapers of Japan, or the color-drenched domes of the Russian Kremlin, fans will enjoy a heightened viewing experience as we bring the world to their couch every Sunday night,” said Executive Producer and co-Creator Bertram van Munster."

that does sound suspicious since they went to Japan, but it could easily be a coincidence.  I did have a feeling they'd go to the artic circle for some reason, though I have no clue why.  But they were just in Russia on season 17.

Departing international flights from Kunming, China.....I am adding any flights to Hong Kong, since it is such a good hub.......

Nov 29....
Yangon (Rangoon, Myrnmar)  0400
Bangkok    0810
Yangon      0840
Hong Kong 0910
Vientiane, Laos  0940
Dhaka, Bangladesh  1250
Vientiane      1330
Bangkok      1520
Hong Kong   1525
Hong Kong   1930
Singapore     2240
Seoul            2350
Kolkata (Calcutta)  2355

November 30......basically the same with these added destinations
Mandalay, Myrnmar  0855
Mandalay   1355
Colombo, Sri Lanka   1620
Taipei          1620
Dhaka        2000
Hanoi         2115

I would think the most likely places would be.......since the race is trending west to east.
Bangkok......for either stop in Thailand or connections to other places to the West
Dhaka........connections to India and Middle East and other places to the West.
Singapore.....for the same reasons as Bangkok.......lots of long distance connections to other places to the West
Kolkata......another connection to India......but not sure about connectivity out of their airport there or stability in India as a whole.....TAR hasnt been to India in a while.....since TAR 14 I think.

Sounds TAR 17-ish, so I expect just a general description. Thanks! Will move it to media....

There have been sevearal posts in this thread regarding this.......it is whenever BVM wants it to start....and we have no idea what he will do......

I did find an interesting flight combination.......a TAR sort of flight connection.....

MU 555   2355-2350    KUN-CCU    Kunming to Kolkatta
LH  751   0240-0835    CCU-FRA    Kolkata   to Frankfort

This flight is just pure speculation.......nothing more.....just an interesting piece of trivial data.......it just made me smile when I saw it

I understand that it has been asked, but i meant like a rough idea like tomorow, or day after that.

I dont think they want  to Europe just yet.

Personally, and this is just my opinion, I think we're done with Southeast Asia unless it's a leg in Laos; I think this Race may do something different towards the end, such as a leg or two in South America and then fly north back to the U.S. This could mean Africa and no Europe, but I could see India, Northeast Africa, Europe, South America, and then home. There are enough legs and potential double legs to do it, and you would think BVM would want to challenge these returning teams a bit more than the average cast.

no one knows anything until the racers are spotted somewhere doing something.  then, a tweet, a pic, a blog, or a sighting will reveal where they are, where they are going, what they are doing, etc....   Once that happens, intuition sets in and the "master" spoilers get to work on the specific legs. 

That's how this site works.  It took me a few seasons to grasp that concept.  Now, it's fun to sit back and watch (and respect) all the hard work that goes on here at RFF.  These people here are amazing! 

I will add, the first few legs of this race have been spoiled like no other.  Not only have they been awesomely spoiled, we're now spoiled!  HAHA....   When it happens it's like the most beautiful bow tied onto the most beautiful package ever.   :colors  Usually, we just get a beautifully wrapped package.

If they want to go to an Indian-style country,SriLanka is a good place.
