Good thoughts everyone!

Neobie,

You continue to be hung up on the Rome airport sighting. I believe that the Rome sighting does not apply to the majority of teams in AR20 if there was any Rome airport visit at all. I agree with everything your analyses concluded, EXCEPT THE LAST SENTENCE. Bavaria does not have to be after Torino. I say it was before it based on all the information you and i have developed.

So now that we know when the Baku leg is airing, assuming twelve legs here's what we have:

1. Salta, Argentina
2. Buenos Aires, Argentina
3. Asuncion, Paraguay
4. Turin, Italy
5. Fussen, Germany
6. Baku, Azerbaijan
...
x. Tanzania (maybe two legs)
...
11. Osaka, Japan
12. Honolulu, USA

Three missing legs in between Baku and Osaka. Did we get how many countries we're visiting this time?

No missing leg between Buenos Aires and Turin. If it's not a Germany leg, what took them so long?

Correction needed in first post timeline. "TBC" isn't correct abbreviation for unknown information; "TBD" (to be determined) is.
And we know the date of the Baku leg episode as the last Sunday in March, March 25th.

Forgive me, I've been away for a few days. How do we know that Italy is before Germany?

We don't know 100%. Neobie has a great analysis here, but it is pinned on one sighting. I talked to her, she seemed reliable with nothing to gain...but bottom line is we can't be 100% sure.

Part of this note about destinations is just logic and then the rest will be speculation. CBS and WRP have publicized in advance, as they frequently do, the new countries never visited before by an Amazing Race. Those are Paraguay and Azerbaijan. We have the countries of Italy, Germany, Tanzania and Japan nailed down.  That means that the European legs will be Italy and Germany (order is arguable and I have with Neobie on this point) and the next two should be Azerbaijan and Tanzania (again, order is arguable and to me does not matter for this analysis).

So we are left with legs 8, 9 and 10 almost certainly in Asia (as is Azerbaijan in leg 6 or 7) and the knowledge that countries will be previously used by WRP. So which ones might those be (in no particular order)?

1. India
2. Sri Lanka
3. Thailand
4. Malaysia
5. Singapore
6. China
7.Cambodia
8. Taiwan
9. United Arab Emirates
10. Vietnam
11. Mongolia
12. South Korea
13. Japan
14. Kazakhstan


Which countries won't it be?
1. Nepal (sorry, all you Nepal proponents but you have to face the facts)
2. Myanmaar/Burma
3. Bhutan
4. Laos
5. Qatar 
6. North Korea
7. Saudi Arabia
8. all of the Asian "Middle East countries"
9. 3 other "stan" countries besides Kazakhstan

I say that 2 or 3 out of the 14 countries on the "which ones might it be?" list was chosen for 3 unknown legs on the AR20 route.

The MODIFY function on posts still does not work consistently, so I have to add things to a note to MODIFY it. For the "prior countries list" add Bangladesh and Oman and up the count to 16 countries.

For the "never visited countries list" please add Pakistan and Yemen.

Is there any chance that this could be a 13 leg race?

We have up to at least leg 4 (if not leg 5) done by Dec. 4

Then teams being spotted in Japan on Dec. 19 before finishing in Hawaii

That leaves 14-15 days to get from Italy to Osaka

And since we have 6 confirmed legs (4 in the beginning, and 2 at the end); to me it seems like 14-15 days is a little much for just 6 legs

Call it wishful thinking, but it seems at very least feasible to me

So it's apparently a hotel and spa, not a winery. The press release messed up. There are plenty of wineries around it though.

I think it is both?

The grand entrance pictured in the publicity shots of Patios de Cafayate really belongs to the large Esteco winery, with this upscale boutique hotel tucked away behind a gate on the right side of the property.

Looks like the first Pit Stop was 13 hours; JJ's watch reads 1.49pm as they check in at Cafayate, and they are released at 2.49am.

So Leg 4 sites in Turin is the Museo d'ell automobile, Oval Lingotto Olympic Stadium (former Fiat Factory), rappel down carpark, paint statue and food challenge . I`am so much looking forward to the food challenge ( they had some epic ones in season 18), just hope that they also have a beer task in leg 5 in Bavaria.  :hrt: :keeta: :hrt:
