I went back and checked, and I was thinking of TAR 15. When the teams went to Japan, there was speculation that they would then go to Taiwan, and then Vietnam, and there was some research that showed that there were flights from Taiwan to Vietnam. It didn't materialize, but my point today was that the one tweeter could legitimately be headed to Vietnam, and be on a flight with this season's new Racers.

That said, Phil has been spotted during the Race a few times, including at pitstops, during these last couple of seasons (Sydney, for one), but one spotting of Phil outside a pit stop that I can think of offhand was in the Penang airport in TAR 16. As I recall, that tipped off the Penang and Singapore legs during filming, as the Race had dropped out of sight. (Seychelles, anyone?)

Back in TAR 15, we had a vacationing woman from Australia that spotted the teams in Vietnam and then a day or two later ran across Phil in a restaurant/bar in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I believe that tipped off both legs for us. Quite a coincidence, but it happened.

That was a crazy headache. I remembered some of us were skeptical of it.. too much of a coincidence. But lucky Australian woman, I say! :lol:

PTT info:
old couple last arrive!
NEL!
Speedbump next leg!

And...
Next leg!
the first time in the history of the Amazing Race,

there will be a DOUBLE ELIMINATION!!!!

I believe this Double Elimination would be different from the one we had in TAR 10? So it is two teams eliminated on the same mat?

Yes, meaning the last 2 teams who check-in will be eliminated. I believe.

If the old couple survived next leg, they will jump up from 11th place to 9th place instantly. Pretty screwed up.. but that's the game. :lol:

I gotta say, this double elim stuff, if true, sounds like the worst thing TAR has ever done, after the TAR family edition of course.

I have a very tenuous clue that the next location (or the one after that) may be Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea.
There are no direct flights that I can see from Taiwan to PNG, but there are plenty of connections using combinations of Hong Kong, Singapore, Manila, Sidney, Brisbane and Cairns.
From there to here, and here to there,
funny things are everywhere

Just got the tip from someone who saw the rundown about the Next Country.

It's new for TAR(US)-Indonesia

and the possible fly maybe GA9981/CI761(0845) BR237(0900) or CI679(1350)

Hoping it's right.

Yesssssssss!! I hope this is true!
Is it possible that Jakarta is just a layover before Denpasar (Bali)?

Actually, Jakarta is going to celebrate its 484th birthday on June 22nd...
So, there is a chance they're going to Jakarta on that day...
It's just my speculation...

Yeah I know, I'm Indonesian too anyway  :waves:

I really hope they will go to PRJ (Jakarta Fair).. and maybe they have to do some tasks there, like making a "kerak telor" or dress up like an "ondel-ondel" ... It would be really fun to watch!!  :lol3:

Ondel-ondel is a possible task...  :lol3:

Don't forget, there are many destinations other than Jakarta, Bali, and Lombok..
Like Bandung, Yogyakarta, Manado (Bunaken), etc.  :tup:

i just saw a tweet from Ahmed Buyah that the teams at the Vihara Dharma Bhakti

I believe that is probably not true  as teams are still believed to be in Taipei, not Jakarta.

Oh my God... If TAR is actually coming to Jakarta, I will really try to follow them!  :lol:
It's still my holiday and I got nothing to do now.  :snicker:

For the tasks, I doubt they're going to copy the same tasks, AGAIN.
I was really shocked when TAR-Aus kinda have the same tasks of TARA.
TAR won't do the same!

Oh yeah, nowadays is a "PRJ" period Prama! That would be a perfect place for tasks representing Indonesia!
Here's REALLY hoping for TAR-US finally come to Indonesia...

I have examined flight possibilities from Taipei to Jakarta. There are 2 excellent nonstop flights available if there was some amount of extended pit stop (which I consider likely):

CI761 (code-share GA9981) 0845 1300

BR237 0900 1310

Note: I will post the same information in the Transportation thread.
