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?
I see you watching me watching you :)

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!

This doesn't bring any new information but I found a mention of TAR filming in Yogyakarta from this blog: http://www.travelblog.org/Asia/Indonesia/Java/Yogyakarta/blog-622143.html

@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:

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.

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

Much thanks to the spotter from the Atlanta airport! :hearts: Below are her descriptions and answers to my questions. Enjoy!

Quote
The teams in atlanta that I saw on the train was the Blond girl and Male with Dark hair- Most likely in first place with the film crew at around 2:30--

They looked really familiar. I don't know if they have been on another show or not. Blond Girl with a pony tail, and the tall handsome guy with dark hair and the SOCKS that are black with white lines on them. Thats how I recognized them. His socks. I swear I have seen them before, and as my dork self I said: "Are you guys filming the Amazing Race?" She said: "No, a Documentary." I said: "That's to bad, I would LOVE to be on that show" She said : "Me too!" LOL  I knew it was them so I left them alone and checked out ALL their gear. Thats how I spotted the RACE on the camera. Dead give away...Oh and the Hauling ASS out of the train and up the stairs. Please let me know if you hear of anything!

The African American couple were next at Baggage claim...And A Lot more to follow--Blond girls---I wish I had my camera out!


Quote
The Blond and dark haired guy were probably eliminated because they didn't have back packs. I found that odd. Plus they were with the film crew.....Humm. There was also an Indian looking girl.

Quote
I was in the D terminal, and they were already in the train....I arrived between 1-2.....So, they must have arrived in the E gate.

Quote
PS
Thinking about it, The two that were on the train were the ONLY ones i saw with a crew. The rest running through baggage claim didn't have anyone filming........

Quote
I am guessing the blond and dark haired guy were racing and the rest I saw were Not. Just by the sense of urgency, and the film crew--That the rest did NOT have.

Quote
I saw these two not racing

http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2019/taipei/pitstop%20pics%20from%20loseaguy/TAR19ep1Blondespistop1.png

And the African American Team--Green Team. I don't remember the tall African American man.... Definitely the Blond Girls. There just wasn't a film crew with them--I guess that means they weren't racing?

Quote
There is one other thing about the Team with me in the train...In all the Photo's You have she is wearing Purple. I distinctly remember her wearing yellow. And like I told you before, they didn't have any packs. They filmed a spot with them in the train how they said it was frustrating waiting on the train...Ours did take a little longer to get moving.


Somewhere in there was also the fact that she saw Kaylani and Lisa, described as a pink team with the "Indian looking girl"

Remember that all this was observed back in June and much of it has been proven on TV by now

Could it be that they weren't necessarily decoys but the teams flying into end city? For the finish line?
