Teams of five wearing vests would have not been a likely sighting.  Just like their neighbors up the coast in Vancouver British Columbia.....speaking of which aren't we due for a false sighting from them?

Hello... I am new here in this site... I am from the Philippines... A fan of Amazing Race from US to China Rush...

I hope that for the next season of Amazing Race 20, it must be more thrill, excitement, more difficult challenges, more countries and cities to visit, more learning to all people... I think that the 20th race might start their filming either from November 25-29 this year.   
the Amazing Racer will race for an adventure of a lifetime....

 :) thanks georgia peach...

any way... my senses told me...

What will happen to the new 20th installment in TAR???

these are my predictions:

Location for the race:
1. The starting line is either washington or california...
2. South America might be only 2 or 1 leg... very old countries... but 1 might be in venezuela or guyana
3. Central America - only 1- Costa Rica or Puerto Rico
4. Europe: The small countries will be ever visited; a leg in Italy... pisa or turin is possible; A little in the Central and Eastern Europe will be visited- Zagreb or sofia
Africa: is in my state of imbalance bacause there be no african leg... but if there is: MOROCCO or ANGOLA can be the best places to race
5. Middle East: Israel is in my prediction- Tel Aviv Yafo and Jerusalem about 50%
6. India: Needs some rest
7. Laos or Bhutan will be  visited: 1 leg
8. Philippines is in balance... but in increase prediction to be visited: 2 legs
9. China: needs rest... but if there are no choices to go for... jilin or guandong is possible
10. New Zealand is either the first or the final country for final 3... Papua New Guinea or Fiji... will be 20-30% be visited...
11. Finish Line: A Park in California or Seattle... New York City is in my prediction...

Teams:
11 teams are:
less couples and dating
more best friends
1 or 2 parent and siblings
some are professionals in their field... mostly will be medical
one european team member..
one asian team member..

The Race Content:
little or no u turn....
hard speed bump
A possible new version twist for The Hazard... a more similar like a speed bump but it goes like this... Somewhere along the leg of the Race, there is a hazard... Any Team may use the power of the Hazard only once... If a team hits a hazard... They must complete a task by themselves, simple or hard,... while the others are still racing...
More difficult detour
There is one Roadblock in this season that is much more harder and is equivalent to a hay task in vasby, sweden (season 6 and 15)


 


My Predictions....
the Amazing Racer will race for an adventure of a lifetime....

Rachel Uchitel, former Tiger Woods mistress, dodges pregnancy rumors

BY Nancy Dillon
DAILY NEWS WEST COAST BUREAU CHIEF

Thursday, October 27th 2011, 8:05 AM

Rachel Uchitel, former Tiger Woods mistress, is reportedly pregnant, according to Life & Style.

LOS ANGELES - If Rachel Uchitel is pregnant, she's certainly not saying.

The former paramour of PGA great Tiger Woods acted surprised Wednesday when asked about an exclusive Life & Style report that she's got a bun in the oven.

"What? Where are you reading that?" she replied in a text message to the Daily News.

She then said she was about to take a flight and referred all questions to her publicist.

Spokeswoman Valerie Allen did not immediately respond to a call seeking comment.

Life & Style said the former New York nightlife hostess learned she was expecting her first child when she auditioned for "The Amazing Race" with her new hubby Matt Hahn.

"They were going to try out to be a couple on the show, and when she had a drug test, it came back positive that she's pregnant," an unnamed source told the magazine.

Uchitel and Hahn married Oct. 2 in a small, surprise ceremony in Las Vegas, she previously told The News.

Yuck!  :groan: Now I have to go wash my hands and keyboard.

So, does this mean that TAR20 will start filming this week, or most probably next week?? ???  :wohoo:

Since Phil is now a co-Executive Producer, it more likely means he's needed to help work on the upcoming filming for next season. The end of October for filming is a little early for spring cycles, unless there's a location the show wants to get to and an earlier start would accommodate that. (Speculation -- Nepal, anyone? :) )

Personally, I think that the race will start in Europe, most likely in a Mediterranean country (those are way overdue - not visited since TAR12 with Italy), probably Spain or (maybe and) Italy.

Here's something interesting from Phil:

@evandrigp Why when you visit jakarta you didn't made a leg or a single clue ...rush to yogyakarta ? >>> we will be back, love #Indonesia

That would be really odd if they didn't visit a country for 18 seasons and then decided to go there on back-to-back seasons. It's quite interesting, but I'm inclined to think that perhaps Phil is referring to a future season? Who knows - stranger things have happened and I wouldn't mind more Indonesia!!! :duno:

However, I think that it's a little bit weird that TAR haven't planned any leg in Jakarta, which is the capital city of Indonesia. (Other than TAR Asia of course)
 
Because, when TAR goes to a new country, usually they plan at least one full leg in the capital city of that country before going to other places.. CMIIW  :)

And also, Indonesia has many great places to visit, especially outside the island of Java...

So, I really want them to design a leg or two in Indonesia in TAR 20 or future season.. :hrt:

It's what usually happens, but sometimes it don't. It has been like what, 3-4 visits to Brazil in 18 seasons, with multiple visits to Rio de Janeiro, we've yet to see Brasilia, which still has a lot of iconic arquitecture despite being a very boring place.

I'm still very curious if we'll get something special theme wise being it the 20th season of the show.

I really hope the twentieth season celebrates everything TAR has given us so far by creating at least 2-3 Switchbacks (or more) of some of the most iconic TAR challenges - I could list a thousand different challenges that would make good Switchbacks, but my frontrunner is the Champagne Towers from TAR16, except making it a Roadblock.

Why? Just wondering. That task didn't seem very memorable.

I hear on Twitter that Rachel and Brendon will be on TAR, Please tell me this is just a rumor! I would hate to see them again, What is the chance of a All-Star season?
