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.

It's either Amani  Marcus or Tommy Andy who will fall short

I really think Amani and Marcus will win. They have a nothing but positive edit, they are always being promoted and they can beat Jeremy and Sandy and Ernie and Cindy sometimes. Somehow it seems like Andy and Tommy get eliminated in Panama :( :( :(

Wait a second now. Sucks did nothing spoiler wise this season. This has been all RFF.

One could argue that several teams this season have had very positive edits, and not just Amani-Marcus. (Andy-Tommy and Ernie-Cindy, for sure -- and there really hasn't been a lot editorially about Jeremy-Sandy.) I don't buy into the editing theory of predicting winners on TAR, and there have been enough seasons where that rule hasn't worked to make such a prediction theory dubious at best.

I'd mind it more if Jeremy & Sandy were Philiminated but I wouldn't mind Andy & Tommy going home.  I like Amani & Marcus and Ernie & Cindy more than Andy & Tommy.

Exactly. Sucks has proved nothing but that they like to copy RFF's work and call it their own.

At least Peach has the decency to admit it:

 
Just a note here.

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!

Just so we're clear, batmanwell is from Sucks, as is Bull Halsey. You might want to correct your statement that this “has all been RFF” this season, cause it's not true, and peach acknowledges it herself above.

That's because Bull originates from RFF. I said it before and I'll say it again: you have an inferiority complex, mds.
