You normally need more than tweets to confirm a sighting. Photos are the best since it reduces the chances for misidentification. Or eyewitnesses who are able to ID teams specifically once the teams are known.

Just a note here.

I think you all know I personally choose to not do bootlists or spoil the final three, but that is just my own personal preference. Having been here for the Season 11 bootlist, I remember well that it really killed off the speculation, the anticipation...the FUN. So I don't do it.

But if you have firm evidence, feel free to present it here. Photos, live sightings, are all always welcomed. But remember, not all "sightings" prove to be accurate or reliable, so buyer beware. Things can also be misinterpreted, just as when Jen and Kisha on the train were falsely assumed elsewhere to be decoys.

All I'm saying is that no one, including myself, has any solid proof that any teams were spotted in Panama.

I am going to disagree with this. I have no reason to not believe that batmanwell saw exactly what he said he saw, when he first posted in a non-spoiler thread on yuku.

The problem is that certain posters are making assumptions based on that information that are ASSUMPTIONS, and not necessarily correct ones. So examine the data, form your own conclusions, but please do NOT repost others' assumptions and speculation as fact here.

And Bull Halsey @ Sucks did a very good job collating all the available data...again, the problem is those who are (mis) interpreting that data, not the data itself.

In any case, have fun, feel free to add any new info or facts to the discussion!

Verite Productions, which has worked with WRP before, is listed with a "WRP-19" for 2011.

Even though no racers are mentioned, it seems solid enough.

I think I worded that wrong. I believe that teams went to Panama, I just don't necessarily agree with any of the sightings seen there. As in exact teams etc. :)
I am trying to be more cautious especially when there seems to be confusion regarding this particular instance.

Fair enough. Take this photo, for example. Reading between the lines (and previous posts), the two women would appear to be the posters Tatta and NicoleParis. The photo posting date--10 July--might be a bit troublesome, but the equipment is hard to deny. And although I don't follow TARLA, I doubt  they were in town the same time. Anyway, it's at Plaza Francia (photo here, pano here--choose "Plazade Francia Statues")

Now that we have a title for Belgium2 DomEl's guess about the Lommel proving grounds is looking good: it has the same forested appearance as the intro caps (video here).

check out this video for Lommel proving ground. Around 1.00 the road and the forest is very similar to what we saw in the promo.

@PhilKeoghan
“@RealReyesTheDog: Will you ever lower the age to 18 like Survivor did or would that cause too much red tape?” >>> working on it:)

Phil Keoghan will working on it for limited 18 age in The Amazing Race? but Contestant must 21 years old?  ??? ???

They've been allowing exceptions to the 21+ rule for a while. They might as well open it up to everyone.

Just a word of advice for TAR20 onwards:

We've got to work out where exactly the line is between looking for spoilers and stalking the contestants. It feels like we've been getting too close to the bad side of that for a couple of seasons now - it honestly wouldn't surprise me if there's another six-year wait before the next Australia visit after what happened in TAR18.

I'd agree on the first half of your post, but would disagree on the second.

Our resident stalkers have never deterred TAR from starting, over and over and over again, at LAX! :lol:

There's a difference between having a few team types (eg. "two blonde girls in pink") spoiled at the start of the season and having entire legs - tasks, locations, arrivals - spoiled, though.

Should the spotters wear protective lenses?

tarflyonthewall, I disagree with you as well.

TAR films in public places. In this era with continuous internet connections (or mobile connections) twitter, phonecams, and what have you, the show isn't going to be able to prevent anyone from reporting what they see, or conversations that they may have (unless the producers get the confidentiality/filming waivers signed.) At this point, the show is fully aware of what may happen, and that they'll face this in some areas of the world more than others.

LAX, in particular, is something I think they've decided to live with. Even the employees there are well aware of when TAR is filming on the premises. While some legs have been well spoiled the last two cycles, others have remained totally obscured, or nearly so.

What I do agree with is that observers of the filming should not directly interfere with the filming. Observe and report to their heart's content, but observe and do not interfere. It's pretty clear to me the show has figured out to use places that are not totally open for tasks (such as the Speed Bump and U-Turn) and this season's use of local "containers" for clue holders is a very clever way of hiding the clues in plain sight.

I want to pile on, tarflyonthewall. World Race Productions/Earthview has opted to not use any airport for the last several Amazing Races that started except with drives to LAX. If they spread the start around the country it would be much more difficult for us to find them at the start. They are choosing the easy route and need to rethink their starting strategy if they want to avoid RFF spoiling races from the beginning.

To me, that taxi looks like a Panama one. So, F4?! There are some white taxis there that seem like this one.

Even though some taxis in Indonesia look like this one too...

I'm pretty sure this is a shot from Indonesia. The spelling of 'Taksi' on the roof is a dead giveaway and as far as I know, they don't spell it like that in Panama..

I was researching and found that too. TAKSI is Indonesian, this may be an unaired shot in the Leg 02 Roadblock, maybe?

If we look at Peach's useful preview caps from Episode 2 here: http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,26267.msg668062.html#msg668062

We can see that Amani is wearing the same top in cap 15, and we can also see the same taxi brand in cap 18. This is probably the car park for the Jomblang Caves.
