TAR 19 EP 1 "Kindness of Strangers" (Taipei)
« on: September 01, 2011, 03:08:24 PM »
THE WORLD IS WAITING!

Press:

This season, the multi-Emmy Award-winning series sends 11 new Teams on a Race around the globe, making first time visits to exotic locations such as Indonesia, Malawi, Belgium and Denmark.  Along the way, Teams will travel through four continents and 20 cities and cover nearly 40,000 miles.

 

Teams will be tested early and often and met with a new penalty called the "Hazard," which will impact one Team's future on the Race right from the starting line.  The global journey sets off from the foothills of Southern California where the Teams' problem solving abilities will be put to the test as they search for clues to their first destination, Taipei, Taiwan. Teams fortunate enough to survive the first leg will find themselves amidst an 8th Century Buddhist temple in Indonesia, riding elephants through the rain forests of Thailand, and racing for their lives when they discover they're facing the series first ever Double Elimination.

 

This season's cast includes a pair of Olympic snowboarders, twin sisters, an ex-NFL tight end, flight attendants, the youngest person to ever sail around the world alone, two winners of SURVIVOR, Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca, and many more.

 

This fall marks the 10 year anniversary of THE AMAZING RACE, which originally premiered on Sept 5, 2001.

The scrolls normally aren't there, so it's probably another "license plate" thing.

There appears to be the letter "X" inside this umbrella. 

Maybe the they have to find certain letters to spell out something like "TPE" which is the airport code for Taipei.  :duno:

^I think you're right; from the release: "The global journey sets off from the foothills of Southern California where the Teams' problem solving abilities will be put to the test as they search for clues to their first destination, Taipei, Taiwan."

And there seem to be a lot of tasks in this episode. The starting line, the billboard, the roadblock at the temple, the Hazard for one team, the jumping at the mall, and the dragon boat.

The pictures I'm finding of that globe shaped building are labeled both Globe Mall and Core Pacific City Mall. So, I think both refer to the same place.

Correct, and it definitely has scenes from Episode 2 because the Twins in the taxi looking quite scared are wearing clothes from what they wore in Episode 2, and Cindy, Ethan and Bill of Bill and Cathi are all seen in the promo @ Jomblang Caves, Cindy and Ethan are rapelling, Bill is climbing up a ladder of some kind.

It's very interesting that teams need to search for clues to their first destination among hundreds of umbrellas, because Taiwan is  famous for umbrella production in 1960~80s. There are still lots of umbrellas made in Taiwan now.
