In my opinion I have a gut feeling that is not a racer but was part of a challenge. Looks like its in China.

You mean the bike pics?

It is clearly Luke and its in India one would presume.

If Luke is in that boat, I couldnt tell. Do you really think Luke is going to do some kind of music task? The tamborine beater looks 100% South Asian to me.

You can see several other locations TAR:UB visits in the intro, such as Mount Fuji, Broken Hill, Jade Rooster Archway(?), etc.

What boat?? It could be a detour. Luke isnt a guy to shy away from any task.

Just before Kisha/Jenn........in that promo, are a bunch of people in a boat with a lot of seaguls. Right after Kisha/Jenn is the pic of the guy with the tamborine. Then the old wise man. When I posted, I didnt know which of these three pics from Inida you were talking about. IF that is Luke dressed up, beating on a tamborine, then he sure got a tan fast.

I don't think that is Luke in any of the pics...and it would be rare for the Intro caps to nclude racers doing a task, they are more location oriented. More boats and gulls in the Intro caps.

we know the spiritual ritual involves freezing water.

Quote
Kanchu Misogi is a traditional midwinter festival of purification that is still practiced in Japan today. The event includes a ritual called mizugori, where participants are poured with ice cold water for purification and good fortune

I don't know if you have seen this article:
http://www.jaunted.com/story/2011/1/26/231051/907/travel/Cowboys,+B-Ballers+and+Former+NFL+Cheerleaders+Return+for+%27Amazing+Race%27+All+Stars

But it says they have to swim in the water, who knows if they know what they are talking about or not...

Well this is encouraging:
Quote
The diversity of water rituals in Japan is phenomenal. The ways in which water is used, and the ends sought, are numerous. One can find somewhere in Japan a water ritual to provide the relief or the assurance desired for almost any event in one's life. An easy birth, a healthy baby, recovery from illness, success in an examination or in a new job, a propitious outcome to moving house, more money, good eyesight, longevity, peace, wisdom and revelation -- each can be had by the proper use of water.
Perhaps they will go with the "more money" version! :funny:


Teppozu Shrine is mentioned several times in conjunction with water rituals and Mt. Fuji.

Jaunted does a good job and the info would have been from a CBS press release, so we should pay attention until we get something different.

When looking at the comparison cap, it doesn't really look like Luke.

The person actually looks quite South Asian, he just happens to be pretty pale, so I'm pretty sure it's a local. I'm not sure that it's in India, either.

I doubt he's American. He's probably from some other country.   :res:
