There is still a chance of a that may start in London and end in Paris (or vice versa). We don't have heaps of info around this time.

A London stopover could be possible especially if they're flying out to Cuba there may be more connecting flights from Heathrow?
And last year the cast was released around April the 10th with a May 17th premiere. So if they're aiming for around the same time I would say potentially next week or early week after we should see the teams.

"still a chance" is in fact a remote one. The start is likely to be somewhere in Asia or Oceania to allow teams first leg easy access to the Philippines. In fact, our timeline has it in Sydney. The finish has been rumored to be in the Brisbane and Fraser Island area. That's a long way from Paris or London, as you who live in Sydney certainly know. A stopover in London on the way to Cuba is a possibility.

He is saying the leg will start in London and end in Paris...

It's just speculation at the moment but Channel 7 often do things at the last minute cause they wait to see what other channels are showing on the same timeslot. I think in the US isnt known well in advance but its different for Aus.

Also we have a competition for a sponsor for the show that starts on April 30, so it can't be too far off now either way.

Well this week, in the absence of TAR, they have a Criminal Minds double episode showing. That's my second favourite show, so you can imagine my excitement when I saw it. :lol: And then I discovered it was two old episodes! :gaah:

However, it is definitely possible that new Criminal Minds could be the thing that pushes TAR back to 10:30pm from April 18th onwards, because that airs on Wednesdays usually in the past.

I hope TAR Aus is on, but to me it seems unlikely, as that date is just two weeks away and they haven't even showed any advertisements other than a meat pie, the Eiffel Tower and the Mona Lisa turning green and gold. :stare :stare :stare

Just speculating, of course! :duno:

April 18th as a possible start seems unlikely. They haven't revealed the cast yet and that usually happens a month before the Race premiere. Or maybe they're just doing things in a different way for this year.

I think it may be possible, only because we can't use the first season as a real guideline as it was the first time the series was premiering so they probably gave it more time for promotion to get Australian audiences used to the idea that we were getting our own version of the race (and they did start promoting it during the Aus Open last year).
Perhaps they think audiences won't need as much time to readjust to the show coming back on, but I would say that if the cast isn't released this week then the 18th is too early, but the following week or the first week of May seems more probable.
I don't think we'd be able to get a clear sense of 7's way of promoting shows and predicting their airdates until at least a few seasons of the show have run.

EDIT: Though on a side note, a lot of the potential casts' facebooks have recently increased in security or have disappeared altogether so this may be a sign.

Bumped: The Amazing Race
By David Knox on April 3, 2012 / 
Thereís no airing of The Amazing Race this week due to CBSís broadcast of the Academy of Country Music Awards (yawn!), but the show resumes here on Seven next week, April 11.

However from Wednesday April 18, it moves to 10:30pm.

Could Seven be launching The Amazing Race Australia before it?

This is what we have to deal with as the network execs in Australia.

Last year the show was on Monday night, but I think Monday looks unlikely again for this year, because I think Australia's Got Talent is starting on that night, and Revenge is there as well, and I assume Seven doesn't want TARAus to air at 9:30pm or later... :duno:

Hopefully the speculation about Wednesday nights turns out to be true, although if that were the case, TARAus would still be at 9:30pm at night, which isn't an ideal timeslot if Seven wants a lot more viewers... :duno:
