I just want to say that I do not have the time, patience or real interest in doing the detective work that is done by the TAR detectives here. I think they work they do is fantastic and I love coming here to read what you guys have uncovered and to see if the race is running anywhere near my home. If it was I would try my hand at detecting. Would I like to know the finale spoilers? Sure. But it won't kill me not to and the reasons given for not providing these spoilers are so legit that I don't understand why people make a big deal. The TAR detectives put in a lot of time, and in cases where they are actually detecting in person I assume some money, to provide us with information. Until you are out there doing it yourself, do not complain with what information you don't have.

Thanks TAR detectives for all the hard work and dedication you all put into finding all this information. You guys have made my last few years of watching TAR so much more enjoyable as I can follow the race live on here and then watch it on TV and be continually amazed how accurate you were.

I'm quite content not to know who wins, don't mind knowing F3, but I agree, having all the spoilers and the final outcome overall is really not a great idea to release. It nearly ruined TAR11

Especially since none of us really liked Eric & Danielle.

Aww I love Danielle

Caper does it again with this great find!!

translated article from the Danish newspaper SN.dk:

Hillingdon - 06th juli 2011 14:32 July 2011 14:32
   

Helicopter over Hillerød procession American television program

Quote
The helicopter, which flew around Monday to Hillerød and Frederiksborg Castle, was part of an American TV production. Frederiksborg Castle will not go with more because it has signed a confidentiality.  Evidence suggests that there can be no reality travel program "Amazing Race" have not previously been in Denmark.

Helicopter over Hillerød procession American television program
 Hill: The helicopter that Monday morning circling over Hillingdon and especially Frederiksborg Castle, was part of an American television crew.  The Americans were in Hillingdon to record a TV program on the Danish castle.

It gives information dissemination employee name removed  from Frederiksborg Castle.
There is an American television program that made filming. The helicopter lavede overview images, says name removed.

She must not comment on further details as she has signed a secrecy with the American broadcaster.

According to one source, there was an American adventure program that was on a visit to Hillerød.  Evidence suggests that there may be talk about the American reality TV program "Amazing Race". . This raises a bunch of players from the United States around the world where they solve problems and find clues to the next destination, often found in and around famous tourist attractions.

 Another indication that the "Amazing Race" has been by Hill, is that Denmark is during the show's 19th  editions so far been ignored. In contrast, Sweden is visited three times and Norway twice.

 
further discussion in locations!! :hearts:

The Hillerød Posten story has a reader comment

Denne helikopter filmede også inde på Amager den samme morgen....

that google translates to:

This helicopter also filmed in the Amager that morning ....

As best I can tell, Amager probably refers to a large island in the south of Denmark, 40-50 miles southeast of Hillerød. The southern portion of Copenhagen is on that island, but there are also other towns as well as Copenhagen airport and a bridge to Sweden. I'd guess that if the report is true, they were probably doing something along the Copenhagen harbor area. At a quick glance, most of the Copenhagen tourist sites appear to be the mainland, not on Amager island.

It looks like another sighting for Malawi (look towards the bottom of the page). Did someone want to contact the blogger to find out more info?

Thanks ovalorange! We know they were there that night already, we know that some of the road rally people saw the TAR group. Will try to ask about any further info though!

@RyanStorms had these two tweets

So ask me why I was at the gas station & I was filmed for the #AmazingRace they asked me how to get to LAX #LookForMeOnTV haha
58 minutes ago

So #TheLife gets crazier so after being randomly filmed for the amazing race I see that one of them dropped there passport!!
13 minutes ago

I'm really curious of what became of this. Was it real?

The timing of this being reported at 959pm on June 18 is a predictor of its veracity. Here are the 3 flights which teams are expected to have gotten LAX to TPE:

19 JUN 2011
CI 7 (0057-0500, scheduled 0055-0550) from Los Angeles to Taipei
BR 1 (0132-0534, scheduled 0115-0600) from Los Angeles to Taipei
BR 15 (0144-0548, scheduled 0135-0620) from Los Angeles to Taipei

Timing of all of them is perfect for that "dropped-passport" story being true. It does not guarantee that it is, but there is a high probability that it could be.

I wish he had told us who it was. I think I remember him saying it was a female and that he made it to return it to them. It should make for some interesting drama in episode one, but I don't think it harms any racers.

I tend to believe it. There were a couple more tweets about how he was racing to the airport to give it back to them. After he had supposedly arrived at the airport and returned it, he clammed up completely, presumably because TAR had him sign a statement allowing them to use his image and probably requiring him to not say anything about what he'd seen. The whole episode was pretty convincing and it rang true to me. If he made it all up, he should be writing screenplays.

He apparently has some minor connections to Hollywood. His twitter description mentions being, among other things, "Apparel Stylist for You & the STARS :)" So, it was probably in his best interest to cooperate with TAR. I went to his twitter feed just now and could find nothing related to this incident. It could be that he removed it (if that's possible), but more likely, the twitter search doesn't go back to June.

If the passport story is true, then the title probably refers to the guy returning it. We'll probably hear a quote like "We only made the flight to Taiwan due to the kindness of strangers."

Update: Nevermind my speculations, I see in the EP1 thread that it's already been reported that the TAR preview shown during "The Mentalist" specifically mentions the lost passport. Kind of ironic to have a contestant's half-mental moment revealed during "The Mentalist".  :lol:

I am going to add in some team sightings pulled from various sources from the plane ride Joburg to Malawi.

I have added {{names}} when it was absolutely clear who the sources referred to.

You will see that there was some confusion as to who was who or with whom....but despite that confusion this source was very reliable.
 
They felt they had only seen 5 teams on the plane, but based on the confusion suspect they really may have seen 6, plus one more at the airport... giving us our seven teams for Malawi.
 
This source reviewed photos I sent:
 
Quote

 saw 5 cameras on the plane...

Quote

... sat next to Andy "surfer dude" from Tahoe. 

Quote

..said Andy definitely talked about snowboarding and that he was a Christian and from Tahoe.
(Note: the name Andy and the Tahoe connection is totally credited to this source!!)
 
Quote

... remembers {{Marcus/Amani}} on that flight all in orange.

Quote

 ...talked about how Andy had some teenagers on the plane growl at the tall African American guy (we assumed was {{Marcus}}) when he walked by as some sort of an inside joke.

Quote

...mentioned that {{AA woman, thought by source to be Amani}} asked to borrow Andy's New Testament on the flight.

Quote

 the lady (we assumed was {Amani}) mentioned that her husband was a doctor and that is how they felt God provided for them to have time off to do the race.

Quote

the woman pointed over to her husband (she was sitting with him but had come over to borrow the Bible) and made this comment. He was the very tall African American.

 
Quote

 
...also remembers the Chinese American woman and the father/son {{Sunderland}}.

Quote

... definitely remembers the "older" husband and wife in the airport as well.

Quote

..they were asking about where the lake was from the plane but no specifics on the task. The only thing {source} noticed them asking about at the airport was whether or not they could get a taxi with a meter (which they do NOT have here, of course).

Second source:
Quote

he was male. African american man tall and built kinda dressed like ur typical basketball coach. Had a beard, think he had his wife with him.

One of them is eliminated and the others must be on another flight. I'll go with the twins being knocked off for several reasons.

If I am not mistaken, this is the flight TO Malawi, not from. Jeremy\Sandy and Justin\Jennifer are on a different flight, whether earlier or later, unless this spotter just did not see them.

Copenhagen!!  :hearts: Thanks to a generous new friend, we have some more sightings!

During a Segway tour, Phil was spotted in this video:
 
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/2yp45SJWELg?version=3&amp;amp;hl" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/2yp45SJWELg?version=3&amp;amp;hl</a>

 
He comments:
 
Quote

We saw Phil filming Amazing Race while on a Segway tour around Copenhagen. The date is July 4, the time was shortly before Noon, local time. The location is down along the water front. We asked Phil what he was doing, and he replied that they were filming a documentary on local customs. (LOL) In reality, this was a pit stop. A few minutes later, we observed one of the teams checking in.


He has generously shared his photos with us!! :tu
 

Quote
The pictures were taken at 12:06 PM on July 4, 2011.  The tall ship with the brown wooden masts is the pit stop.  I have included a link to Google Maps showing the area where the ship was docked.  The ship was docked in front of Amiliehaven.  Amiliehaven is a park along the water front that creates a natural buffer between city and water.

MAP LINK
 
 

 
 

 
 
And best of all, this ties in PERFECTLY with Chateau's awesome Copenhagen spoilers as well!!
