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.

ya but one is to believe that is from India and the person is "causcasian".

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

I don't think that is Luke, but I do see a white cowboy hat in the background.

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 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

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... :)

It's still a possibility that they are going to clash once again in China and maybe they even show the feud from season 14 to remind us...still have many places for them to clash.... :lol:

:roo for tonight's episode...

Phil's video diary shows him leaving Shelly Beach and going to the airport to catch the 6:20 pm Rex flight ZL878 to Broken Hill on Nov 22. So he got to get a bed there that night. It shows him flying back to Sydney. He talks about catching the flight to Tokyo. But here is the fly in the ointment. The reg daily flight from Broken Hill to Sydney is at 630 am. The two charters the teams flew on left at 8:50 am and 9:30 am after they dropped off the teams. The next flight from Broken Hill to Sydney is at 630am on Nov 24 ZL877. If it had been on time, he might could have made JL772 leaving Sydney for Narita at 9:20 am. But it was late in arriving in Sydney and he would have ended up on same flight with teams on the Qantas 21 flight.

Looks like Phil left Broken Hill on Rex Regional ZL863 @ 1325 to Dubbo and then from there on same flight number to Sydney. Arriving at 1705 with plenty of time to catch QF21 to Narita. Dubbo is a town between Broken Hill and Sydney. It is on the same highway and the train passes through there too on the way to Sydney.

So it looks like he was in Narita starting a nice day off before teams even arrived in Sydney on the train.

Hmmm...I think there may have been another chartered flight for production?? Seems like someone told me something about production flying out that night, about the time the teams were heading to the trains. Will look later.

Well I wont argue with you Peach, but in the video....it is very bright sunshine. More like mid day when Phil says "they" are leaving to catch flight to Japan. Flight Stats shows no direct flights from Broken Hill to Sydney after 9:30 am on the 23rd.

Flight ZL863 leaves Broken Hill at 1:25 pm and makes a stop in Dubbo, then continues on to Sydney after 20 minutes on the ground.

If Production left around 6 pm....it was probably ZL4833 to Alelaide. From there one late night flight and 2 early morning flights to Sydney to connect with JL772 to Japan @ 9:20 am on Nov 24. They would land in Narita before the teams left Sydney.

How about a finale task that has something to do with clue-givers? Like

Leg 1: Commodore
Leg 2: Spirit World Lady*
Leg 3: Frog of Luck Man*
Leg 4: Either one of the Zodiac Men
Leg 5: Paleontologist

*Though I think this task is not gonna be the finale task. It would be unfair for Detour choices such as these. :lol:

I can't find the interview right now, but I remember Phil saying that teams were going to be shocked by how sneaky (an)other team(s) was, and it looks like he was referring to Kent & Vyxsin because Phil responded to a tweet with this:
Quote
Yes, things get very interesting between K & V and the other teams.
