I hope Caelestor's idea is used by World Race Productions. Spain has been underutilized by past Amazing Races. AR3 used Spain for its highway connections to Algiceras. AR 10 was in Barcelona. That's it, just 2 visits in 18 races. I would love to see Bilbao, Granada, Seville or even Madrid in AR19.

WRP could even take the Race to the possible location of the lost city of Atlantis, that is now a protected marshland in southern Spain, or the location of one of several "memorial cities" said to be replicas that have been uncovered in central Spain.

Thanks for the welcome everybody  :hearts:

Agree with all the lost potential in Spain visits... they drove through a bit of the country in TAR 6 (I think) but it all focused more on car problems (the usual Diesel and gear sticks)...

Cities like Madrid, Granada, Seville, Bilbao, Valencia would be great locations...

Back on topic - glad the Cowboy sighting is likely to be false they are my mum's favorites and she would be heartbroken to think she had them so close by and never got a quick look :)

From The Futon Critic:

"Sunday, May 8 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) THE AMAZING RACE - The final four Teams race through Rio de Janeiro and then to Miami, where the winner of the $1 million prize is revealed. Phil Keoghan hosts."

As others in the Finale thread (which I read after the fact) have pointed out, note that it says 4 teams, unique for an Amazing Race.

Don't we expect the fourth team to be eliminated at the Rio pitstop?

I did expect that until the CBS press release arrived. Now I believe that it does not matter if it is 4 teams or 3 that start Ep. 12 in Rio. Somehow, that group of teams will be narrowed until only 2 or at most 3 teams race for the Finish Line.

Somebody goofed.

4 go to RIO.

3 race for the finale.

Guaranteed.

This would be the first finale since season six to do that, right?
