He was probably the kind stranger mentioned in the episode title

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?

It's kind of late now, but I found a couple of pictures on Flickr (posted yesterday) that appear to be from the Panama leg. I can't grab a copy of the pictures due to all rights being reserved, perhaps someone else will have better luck.

The first one looks like a cameraman following Tommy through a rundown street. There is a sign that appears to be in Spanish.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/wanderingval/6475111743/

The second one shows one of the Panamanian dancers.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/wanderingval/6475111367/

This one is entitled "Producer". I'm not sure it belongs because the photographer is taking a picture of someone I don't recognize. Maybe it's referring to the older guy using a cell phone.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/wanderingval/6475112081/

Because of the date in the exif data that says it was taken December 7, 2011 (yesterday), I started to post it in the TAR 20 sightings, but I think this just has to be TAR 19.

Just in case it matters, if you start looking through the photostream, there are some tasteful nude pictures, so it may not be suitable for your workplace. Honest, I was looking for more TAR related pictures.   :cmas13

 :cmaslol  I was wondering if that was him! Given the timing, I was thinking that might have been posted by someone on the production staff.

That then raises the question of who they were photographing because that doesn't look like anyone I recognize from that episode. It certainly isn't one of the racers.
