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

The season of the double legs.  :groan:

Well, there's only Indonesia and Malawi confirmed as having two legs, no?
So Leg 9: Denmark to Belgium is not necessarly in Denmark or Belgium. It could have been in Germany or another european country... right?

No.  :lol:

Let's see, teams are in Denmark on 7/4, and teams are in Brussels on 7/6. Then teams are in Panama in 7/8 or 7/9. Think about it.

OK.. your right, it's a little tight, but maybe they did a double leg, or two legs in a row without pitstop like last season.  :duno:
Or maybe between Brussels and Panama (like in Leafsfan post in the Timeline). It says possible second leg in Belgium but it could be in France.
Ok, I'm falling into speculation now... It's just because they never went under 9 countries visited (I think) in one Race...

Denmark to Belgium is not yet clear.

Yes, #9 COULD be Denmark to Belgium...with transit via somewhere else ...or just Belgium. We are not 100% here yet.

If one country has been changed at last minute...then this could be possbile.

No...this requires no change in the route. It is just that Belgium 1 could be partial Denmark or somewhere in between. :lol:

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.
