Not exactly....

for one thing, Nepal is PURE spec. At the moment we have no proof that that was ever intended.

 Okay. That mystery destination is either a double leg in Denmark or Belgium. By bet is on Denmark.

So 7 countries according to a source which I read yesterday but can't find.  :groan:

Taiwan
Indonesia
Thailand
Malawi
Belgium
Denmark
Panama

I'm not under the impression that can be said to be the final list; there are some assumptions in there because it's still likely we have 12 legs (or their equivalents) as has been the case in every recent season and with only 7 countries listed there would have to be five countries with double legs (or the equivalents).

I think I maybe might have interpreted the 7 wrong. Maybe it was written as seven countries confirmed to be visited etc..

Well, we know there's one in Indonesia. Another leg in Malawi or somewhere near in Africa? There is always the possibility for a double in Denmark, Belgium, or both. What are the odds of a missing European country? Seems like they usually visit more than that.

I would include Germany as a good possibility for some activities as the race may have gone by land form Denmark to Belgium:   :waves:

That's what I was wondering too...there may be another European country. :duno:

Panama was the only country Leafs listed that hasn't been confirmed by the CBS press release.  I'd be very surprise that CBS would let all of the country out of the bag before the season even started.
I think there's still a good chance for another non-European country either just before or after Malawi, and possible another European country. Otherwise the amount of time used just to get into and out of Malawi as a proportion of the 21-22 days of filming would be a lot, even if there are two legs there.

Germany wouldn't be counted though, because no actual tasks actually occurred in Germany.  I am not a fan of double legs.  :groan:

They let out the route I believe for the TAR14, they have done it before so its not like its never happened. Anyways if any country is visited it was a old country, hence why Panama was released. Typically they release all the new countries at once.  So maybe a Kenya/Tanzania/Mozambique in that region.

Yes, from pictures like this one you can tell that this location is definitely Jomblang Caves.

This site has some more pictures and a lot of great info. As you can kind of see from the promo it is a vertical cave with entrance by rappelling only. At the bottom is access to a tunnel that is quite large. That must be what they are in.

Also it is 2 hours from Jogja.

But I don't know if this pic is in that cave. It doesn't seem the same.

Yeah, the shots of Liz and Marie and Andy and Tommy in taxis are in Indonesia because Taiwan drives on the right and Indonesia drives on the left.

The cable program guides are now listing this episode with a description mentioning Ethan/Jenna, the Hazard and Taipei, but there is no episode title shown.

I've just checked the CBS corporate website, and no press release with the episode description has been posted yet.

An opportunity to travel to Copenhagen came up  :hoot:   {{{}

Since CBS has listed Denmark as one of the visited countries for TAR19 I decided to do some good old fashioned detective work!  :spy:

I checked countless locations in and around Copenhagen to find out if the Race had come through.  On the first day, September 3rd, I took a 3.5 hour tour with Mike's
Bikes to get a feel for the city.  It's a great tour.  And if the girl from Dublin ever reads this please contact me!   :-[  Her bike broke down before I could get a name  (:;)

Back to the detective work:  Starting with what we know (not the actual time order of investigation)

Hillerød     It's to a castle I will take you!



The local press had already reported seeing Amazing Race filming at Frederiksborg Slot in Hillerød so I took the 25 minute metro ride out there and started asking around about the filming that happened there on July 4th.   I found out that many Danes are currently watching TAR18 on their cable channel (the latest episode had Luke drinking all the tea).  Here is what I found out about TAR19:

Teams arrived the morning of July 4th.  They drove their own cars past the usual parking areas and came right up to the castle.  They went running up two levels of spiral stairs and went to the Great Hall.  Here is a video of doing that:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/qg6QMfZwq-Q?version=3&amp;amp;hl" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/qg6QMfZwq-Q?version=3&amp;amp;hl</a>

I could not make sense of the arrival order.  The two teams that stood out were Zac & Laurence and Marcus & Amani.  The rest of the teams became a big blur.

The task in the Great Hall involved wearing medieval clothes and doing dance routines.  One team member waited and watched while the other one did the task.  So we know this was the Roadblock.  Nobody could figure out what the helicopter was looking at.
