I noticed that on the CBS schedule website, episodes with an orange/brown background are in HD. But Amazing Race is not orange, but grey.

The most interesting thing is that the airplanes were NOT blown...but nicely on little wire stands. Expect that each may have had a phrase, perhaps only a few with the RIGHT phrase?? ???

Clues are stuck in Phil's pocket. TAR 15 style again, no surprise elimination this time though. So i guess only the first 3 teams gets tickets on the first flight.. and maybe, just maybe.. the last team might get a small penalty or what?

So i guess Kisha/Jen, Gary/Mallory and Amanda/Kris should be the first 3 teams to find the paper aeroplanes?

I just find it funny that they are revealing so many details about the premier.  I mean, in that one promo they reveal the opening location and challenge, the first destinaton city, specifics of the Roadblock and the Active Route Marker (a new element?)  Have they ever given that much info ahead of time?!

I guess they decided they might as well put it all there, since RFF already has!

Edit: because an "Active Roadblock" is not the same as an "Active Route Marker", proving once again that I should not post after my bed time

Yes...they do release info sometimes when they know it is out there...sometimes just because they want to! :lol:

And I think it is Active Route Marker??

I think Active Route Marker is just an additional task that's not a Detour or Roadblock. I think we've been seeing Active Route Markers since the beginning, and the show won't acknowledge it or specifically call it that.
