I totally agree...we all like tradition but in some ways this is a return to our roots. And I find this...and the cast...totally refreshing.


Oh and THE FERN is back!! :hearts:

And I suspect we were meant to have one more new country too...it wasn't Nepal sadly...but maybe LAOS was possible?

smoke that thunders, thank you...knew that didn't sound just right. :lol:

Yeah, there are some positive things this time.

*More contact between the teams and locals.
*4 NEW COUNTRIES VISITED! that's awesome...  :hearts: It is cool that the countries that were previously visited were only visited once, so we are getting to see many new places (except for Thailand)

Haha, old-fashioned TAR for me is TAR 1, where we had clues placed in jewel boxes at the Taj Mahal, baskets tied to a stick in the Sahara, an Eiffel Tower statuette (OK that -was- the clue), even a frying wok in Beijing! Now if only there were some cryptic clues to go along with it! (Ximending was a good start!)

I remember being terribly disappointed in TAR 4 because they repeated so many countries (which, of course, pales in comparison to more recent seasons)... The number of new countries we're seeing makes it feel like we're back in the TAR 1-3 era!

PS I know I'm asking for it with a nick like that, but I don't think I'm a newbie anymore... ;)
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Sorry, just realised i wrote your name wrong... already fixed it :D


For me TAR 1 is like the exception... because from season 2 onwards all the races followed the same pattern, that's what i call old-fashioned  :js:. But i have to say that i loved TAR 1!

Most of the tasks are also very good and location very scenic (I simply LOVED the Phuket leg)
I hope it will continue like this!

PS: Found the Denmark epsiode title!  :yess: :-[

"Super Shady (Copenhagen, Denmark)"

Since Copenhagen is in the title, could there be a second Denmark leg?

The one Phuket leg had similar tasks to the one Phuket leg in TAR 1; and here's another call back to TAR Classic ( a/k/a 1) -- Having three NELs in the first six legs. The classic NEL pattern had early legs with alternating eliminations and non-eliminations but at this point we only have 1 more NEL left in the six remaining legs, so I suspect we're in for a row of eliminations to get down to the final three.

For fun, a speculated boot order:

Leg 7 Malawi: Bill and Cathi eliminated
Leg 8 Denmark: Laurence and Zac eliminated (this should be a fun leg, I think E/C will use their EP on the last leg for it and there could be a U-turn)
Leg 9 Belgium: Justin and Jennifer eliminated
Leg 10 Belgium: Amani and Marcus NEL :lol: :res:
Leg 11 Panama: Amani and Marcus eliminated
Leg 12 Georgia: Ernie and Cindy win :wohoo:

I'd prefer to have Andy & Tommy and Jeremy & Sandy eliminated instead of Amani & Marcus and Justin & Jennifer (the latter being a surprise for me), but I can accept Bill & Cathi and Laurence & Zac going home.  And Ernie & Cindy are back to being my favorite team, so I hope they win.

It really doesn't concern me when I see that the race is going to an already-visited country, purely because I know the leg is usually going to be brand new and fresh.

Take India for example. There are so many different cultures, languages, customs and sights just in that one country (albeit very large country) alone, that I know we're in for a very special viewing experience, even after the 13 or so legs we've already seen there. I honestly believe we could get through hundreds of seasons without the list of potential locations growing scarce.

Good spot! In both TAR19 and 18, if a location other than the country was included, it meant there was more than one leg in that country, so I'd be inclined to believe in a second Denmark leg.

This is what I think so far... PURELY UNKNOWN
Leg 7 Malawi: Andy and Tommy eliminated (due to a U-turn) [IF contestants are smart] hahah
Leg 8 Denmark: Bill and Cathi eliminated
Leg 9 Belgium: Laurence and Zac eliminated
Leg 10 Belgium:(?)
Leg 11 Panama: (?)
Leg 12 Georgia: (?)

Tell you what...

If you are SPECULATING a bootlist based on SPOILERS, then this is the place. If you are jsut speculating on NO basis, then take it to Wishlists please. :tup:

On this matter, I find it curious, if I am not mistaken at this similar point last year, we did have a better idea of how the remainder of the season would roll out. 
Just went through some of the other threads and the timeline, and there are very few sightings that could give us more concrete data to speculate on the placement of the teams still in the running.

I wonder if this is related to the new versions of clue boxes.  The old clue boxes were quite visible and recognizable.

Quote from CBS Foursquare: 'teams must choose whether to sabotage their fellow Racers for a chance @ 1st place!'

I find this worded a bit strangely. I wouldn't say that using the U-Turn gives you a 'chance' at first place. If you're already in first, it just makes first place more likely than it already is, and if you're second or below, it doesn't get you any closer to the team in first.

What if the inclusion of the iPads heralds a new way of U-Turning? There could be two U-Turn boards, both a long way apart, and a team would use the power at the first board, but wouldn't discover their fate until reaching the second. In this way, a team would be able to U-Turn a team that is in front of them.

I don't really think this is the case, but it would be a very interesting idea if it was implemented correctly!

From http://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/amazing-race-19-2011/episode-9-season-19/amazing-race-19/327343

Season 19, Episode 9
Episode Synopsis: The race continues in Denmark and Belgium. Original Air Date: Nov 20, 2011

What could this mean? One task in Denmark and one in Belgium? Or maybe tasks in D and PitStop in B a bit like in leg 5? Or maybe the whole leg is in Belgium? Or a two hour episode with a TBC leg?   ???

Interesting! It is probably a split leg then, with teams travelling from Copenhagen to Belgium midway through the leg, before a full run in Belgium in the next leg.

AHHH!! Thanks!! That is what we have been waiting for...remember we have been very unclear as to whether or not this leg included the TRANSIT portion as well, we had some conflicting info.

So this is good to know!!

Ideally this should mean that one of either the roadblock or detour is in Denmark and the second is in Belgium; the classic formulation of this would be the TAR 2 leg split between Hong Kong and Sydney (you know the one with Danny and Oswald shopping).

It's also possible it could be a leg with 2 detours and no roadblocks (total speculation): the big question is the transportation between the two countries. (Bus, train, drive. fly?); all of the options would be open and would be do-able since the likely routes would cross Germany and the Netherlands on the way.
