Interesting article! Is RFF really a "stalking site"? Andy Denhart thinks so but I would call it a"freedom of information act" site. Most interesting is "The siteís moderator had a cameo this season because of a contestantís lost passport." This was only on the Internet and in the New York Times as far as I know. Did one of our moderators actually get televised and we all missed it? How would that be possible, particularly since it looked to me that World Race Productions was doing everything possible to not give RFF any shout-out on camera for the passport incident resolution?

The text of the tweet shown on air I believe came from peach. She wasn't credited but if you recognized it you could tell.

Peach was described as the uberfan, but it was my twitter handle that was visible on screen.
Unfortunately, no lost passports in LA this season.

RFF got credited with having pictures of the Brenchel couple at LAX in a column in the Orange County Register.

I believe this columnist has reported on our activities in the past.

Phil:

Meanwhile, Amazing Race fans will be interested to know he recently wrapped taping of the next season -- the 20th -- which he (natch) promises will be full of twists and turns. It premieres Feb. 19 (details here).

They did it super fast in these budget-crunching times (22 days, which is shorter than in the past). "It was insane," he says. "It's like (throwing) a new party in a new country every day" -- lots of last-minute arrangements and changes. Plus, with a lot of popular, easy-to-reach spots already used, "we're going to out-of-the-way places ... it's getting harder from a production standpoint."

ZBC, I don't think it means 11 legs necessarily at all. It does suggest that the no rest legs are becoming even more of a staple, and suggests that the "out of the way" places are making it even harder for them to be spotted during filming.

I honestly don't think producers are bothered at all about location spoilers. The only spoilers they absolutely do NOT want released are anything that gives away the race results. And I don't think the spoilability of a location would ever affect their choice of race route.

Production might mind about locations, but I love Phil's comment best. See my sig. :)

I missed your sig. I was so dense that I never made a connection between your Gone With The Wind quotes and  the final leg of TAR 19 being in Atlanta.  :colors  :groan:

I'd say that Production isn't too happy if we spoil locations, but I think they are really unhappy if we spoil how teams do.

CBS aired a "The Amazing Race 20" promo during the first quarter of the AFC Championship Game this afternoon. First time I've seen them refer to a season by number in the promo in a long, long time.

Ahh, I'm watching the game right now but we get stuck with our rubbish English ads! Was there any footage from the season or was it just a teaser?

There were a few quick footage clips. I didn't get a good look at it though, sadly. Hopefully, CBS will show it again during the game.

If someone can watch CBS from 7-9 tonight we will try to snag it! Give us a time if you spot it!

Are any of the scenes new? I don't recall the ultra light plane and I don't recognize one or two of the teams. With my memory, that doesn't mean much though.

All the scenes look to be from previous seasons, I believe the plane is from season 11 or 16.
