Yeah, big leads like that are a thing of the past. Production has so many ways to bunch up the racers now and I doubt we'll ever see gaps like that again. (But I really hope we get another Bill & Joe moment one day, stuck 24 hours behind!)

I think Phil did type TAR 19 when he meant 11; as he used 19 hours in that tweet as well. That was also the leg where teams were recovering from the nightmare leg in Africa, and in getting out of Africa to Europe.

Peach, I know that you mean well, but here is what I have:

AR11, release from Zanzibar Island, Stone Town ep. 6 following the flights mess getting to Dar-Es-Salaam
Charla/Mirna 420am
Joe/Bill 701pm
difference = 15 hours

AR11, release from Warsaw, Poland ep. 7b or 8 (take your pick; I refer to it as ep. 8)
bus #1 1pm
bus #2 5pm
so, compression down to a 4 hour gap was achieved by essentially holding the first bus an obscene amount of time after their pit stop was completed (Dustin/Kandice were delayed for 14 hours) to have a competitive race

AR11, release from Pieskowa Skala near Krakow, Poland ep. 9
Oswald/Danny and Dustin/Kandice 938pm
Eric/Danielle 322am
difference = 6 hours

AR11, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia finish of ep. 9
My best estimate here is that Uchenna/Joyce's missing their connection in Frankfurt caused them to check-in about 10 hours behind Dustin-Kandice.

So, from this perspective, the jury-rigged delay of the first bus plus the 4 hours after that departure for the second bus took a total of 18 hours (Phil was pretty close). This took place during the beginning of leg 7b or 8 depending on how you count the TBC, with my count indicating it was leg 8.

The same two legs from TAR 14. :groan:

(I loved TAR 14, but I would like to see some different places.)

Remember that it is VERY possible that Bangkok was a last minute substitution for another leg that had to be changed...

We do NOT know it was supposed to be Nepal...just somewhere else. :tup:

And sadly...it appears that NEPAL is not our missing leg after all. :(

We have one/two? missing country/ies. Usually Amazing Race visits 9 to 10 countries, but we only have 7 confirmed, and Panama speculated.  Wonder what is missing?

All countries are accounted for, and Panama is confirmed.

The only question is the route Denmark to Belgium...if another country could be involved even just in transit.

This may have been answered already but I have tried to find it in a threat and can't. How do we know or why do we think that there was a country change? Just out of curiosity.

A typical Amazing Race is either 11 or 12 legs. There haven't been any 13 leg races since the early seasons. Since we believe this:
leg 5 Bangkok
leg 6 Malawi
leg 7  Malawi
leg 8 Denmark
leg 9 Brussels
leg 10 Panama
leg 11 finale in Atlanta area

That provides an 11 leg race, so nothing appears to be missing.

I think there is a missing day between Denmark and Belgium, so I believe there's a double leg in either one of those, making a 12-leg race.

If that is a full route, then there is only one more NEL\TBC, which isn't completely impossible, but I would speculate that there are two more NELs\TBCs.
Physics alone is not enough.

Those who forget history are sure to repeat it.

An extended 36 hour pitstop could explain your "missing day", Neobie.

These are the legs we have to date:

Leg 1: LAX to Taipei, Taiwan

Leg 2: Indonesia (Yogyakarta)

Leg 3: Indonesia (Borobudar +)

Leg 4: Phuket, Thailand

Leg 5: Thailand (possible last minute change)

Leg 6: Malawi

Leg 7: Malawi

Leg 8: Denmark

Leg 9: Denmark to Belgium

Leg 10: Belgium

Leg 11: Panama

Leg 12: FINALE in Atlanta, Georgia

What Neobie said. ^^

But interesting... we have seen more double legs in the last few seasons.

Apskip, do you have the total # of countries for each TAR season handy? It does feel like we get fewer countries than in TAR The Early Years. :lol:

An  interesting source that I have never used before is:

epguides.com & TVRage present
The Amazing Race
(a Titles &
Air Dates Guide)
by this TVRage editor
Last updated:

It states that the 12th leg is the finale telecast on 12/11/11.

I consider FutonCritic.com to be a really authoritative source. They SPECULATE that the finale is the 12th leg on Dec. 12. I don't consider this a done deal yet, although I do consider it probable that it will be 12 legs. There is nothing on CBS right now to indicate how many legs or when the finale is.

OK, Peach, just for all you do. Here is the number of countries for each season as best I can determine it (Corsica/France counts as 1, Sicily/Italy counts as 1, Hong Kong/China counts as 1 and Macau/China counts as 1, U.S. does not count at all, even in AR8):

AR1 - 7
AR2 - 7
AR3 - 10
AR4 - 8
AR5 - 10
AR6 - 10
AR7 - 10
AR8 - 3
AR9 - 9
AR10 - 10
AR11- 9
AR12 - 9
AR13 - 7
AR14 - 8
AR15 - 8
AR16 - 8
AR17 - 9
AR18 - 8

Guys, Phil said at the beginning of the Race at the start line that there are 12 legs this time. The question has always been whether CBS was aiming for a two-hour episode somewhere, or ending on December 11th, by going straight through 12 weeks.

I've said before that I thought a finale on the second Sunday of December was likely, with Survivor the following week, and Christmas being the weekend after that. Especially now that CBS is not having to deal with scheduling a Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation for the holiday period.

I think we have another country with two legs somewhere after Malawi. Which means either Belgium or Panama. I'm not surprised by the number of countries getting two legs, if for no other reason that it helps them manage a budget when there is only one African country, and the time it must have taken to work that in with legs beforehand in Thailand and afterwards in Europe.
