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.


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:

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.

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:

I'm pretty certain that last pic is Brazil.

The far bottom right is the face of a dark-skinned man. I would be surprised if there was a racer in that shot.

That looks like either its jet or cord (the cowboy hat) and that pic is for sure in India, looks to the far bottom right.

The cowboy hat looks more like a Gaucho(?) style hat to me (no upturned brims) ...and that is def ZOT Jet or Cord in that pic. :lol:

I tried lightening up that picture and tinkering with the contrast and the guy in the cowboy hat still looks like he has a dark complexion and not a light complexion like Jet or Cord. It does not look like Luke to me either. I think it must have been taken in Brazil and is at a samba dance task of some kind.

Gotta love a spoiling Phil. :lol:


Speaking with eOnline, Phil revealed which racers would be the villains this season.

 
Quote
“Well, there was a lot of conflict between Luke and the other girls.  Margie and Luke had a bit of an issue with Kisha and Jen in China.

Quote
Phil said that Ron has changed the most.


Quote
  “The Globetrotters “Flight Time” & “Big Easy” are the team that I would probably say of everybody there is the most inspirational.


Quote
Kent and Vyxsin are also no pushovers. They’re pretty sneaky!

Quote
I assure you that there is tension and a little bit of jostling for power. I think I can leave it to your judgment as to who those teams are. There’s always going to be tension, and I will leave it to you to whether to classify if the behavior is villainous. There’s certainly lots of tension.”

Peach, I believe Phil is referring Luke's issue in season 14 before,
http://www.cbs.com/primetime/amazing_race/recaps/1409/recaps.php. It was really intense that time

However, it would be really unwise for them to re-enact their feud again...

Actually after seeing the teams, I'm leaning towards a father/mother-son/daughter(F/M-S/D) teams winning this season...Last season we have seen 4 all-female teams in one season which was kinda a 'first' in TAR history and now, there are 4 F/M-S/D teams in one season. This might be the reason why Toni/Dallas is not included in this race...otherwise it would show how badly they want a F/M-S/D to win this race. Gallory I reckon... :)
