Why were the S5 and S19 legs moved?

If I remember correctly, there had been some sort of unrest or terror attack in Instabul shortly before season five was filmed, and as to TAR 19, Phil only said that they had to unexpectedly replan the two legs filmed in Phuket from their original location on less than 24 hours' notice. I don't think any other details ever surfaced.

There was two separate bombing (five days apart) in Istanbul in November of 2003 and TAR 5 filmed late January and February of 2004

Hi guys! I've been following this blog since the start of TAR 20, so I'm kind of new lol. I just had a question on Leg 2 of TAR19: I saw on Wikipedia that someone had said that teams had checked into the pitstop for some  amount of time before they made them re-film and then run back to the orphanage due to production not arriving at the orphanage in time? Something like that IIRC? Does anyone know if that actually did happen, because when the teams are checking in, it's almost like a majority of them knew that they had done something wrong. Wikipedia can be incorrect obviously so I just wasn't sure...and also wasn't sure if this was a dumb question lol thanks!  :tup:

From what I remember teams got ahead of production somehow and they had to refilm some sequences. I think you could ask eddiethejet.

Just thought of this question.

When teams are buying train, bus, or subway tickets, do they buy all 4 tickets for themselves and camera crew or only 2 tickets for themselves?

Depends on what they're using to pay for the tickets. If they're using the production credit card (for airfare although one season they were permitted to use it for fuel for vehicles) they actually are purchasing tickets for both the team and the two-person camera crew. If they're using their cash (whether or not we know how much they have for a leg, they are paying only for themselves, and the camera crew pays for their own tickets. If its a single fare (regardless of how many, or fuel or tolls for a vehicle) then the team is paying for the crew as well.

New challenge:
Let's figure out the episodes where Phil's voiceover is taken over by an impostor, my contribution: Season 11 Leg 2, I'm listening to the opening voiceover cringing and thinking "that's not Phil, this is so wrong"
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

I listened to EP2 and EP3 and I don't hear a difference.  Are you talking about the "Previously on the Amazing Race" part or after the opening credits?

It's interesting to notice that Phil presents all the voiceover of TAR while Jeff Probst doesn't do so for his Survivor. Actually I don't know yet who does that for Survivor... :lol:

Phil has been known to have to do overdubs for the voiceovers on a phone, in the middle of nowhere, if they're editing and have an audio problem to fix. Sometimes the planned standovers get overtaken by editing decisions, and it's easier for the editors to call Phil up and have Phil read the revision aloud over the telephone. (I remember Phil mentioning this in interviews over the years, so it has happened more than once.0 There is always going to be differences in audio quality due to differences in ambient sound, equipment used, and background noises (inside versus outside, for example.)
And this is usually how the editors handle Phil's voiceovers when they decide to take out route markers from the episode in editing.

All the voiceovers in episode 2 are by a different person, though during the middle of the episode he almost manages to get the right accent

What are the exact details on decoys running the race? It happens with the top 6 teams I believe? and what exactly do the teams do when they run as decoys? Just follow and watch the other teams and be present at key points or perhaps random points to throw spoilers off? Do they ever actually perform any of the tasks?

I saw footage once of a decoy team running into a cab being filmed. I searched the last 10 pages of the thread and didn't see anything so I apologize if this was already addressed!

I'm not aware that WRP has ever done so with original TAR, although there were issues with some betting sites in Las Vegas during the time frame of some early TAR seasons (I'm thinking 5-6-7, but I can't remember precisely at the moment).

The only U.S. program that I'm aware of that has ever brought a suit of that sort was Mark Burnett's company over Survivor a cycle of two ago involving Russell Hantz.

This doesn't mean that there might not have been cease-and-desist letters from a show's lawyers, but we rarely heard about those.

America's Next Top Model had an issue with a contestant revealing herself on facebook. My boyfriend told me she posted a facebook status saying she was america's next top model. They then re-filmed the entire finale without her present and chose a different winner.
