I don't recall anyone from the race revealing that much information in advance. EVER.
 seems odd.

Alanevada,

What I think is not as important as what Phil 's frame of reference is. Even though nothing has changed in my assessment that NONE of the 3 Netherlands ROADBLOCKS are "infamous" Phil's reference this time was to hilarious. Nobody could argue that counting bells is either infamous or hilarious. Counting eels is not infamous and it is not very hilarious. The ditch vault is not infamous in any respect and I do not see it as hilarious, but it could be viewed as hilarious by Phil.

I will say that I hadn't expected the season preview aired at the end of the episode tonight to confirm by the use of a clip that one team makes it to the last few legs, by using a location long time viewers ought to recognize.

Those of you who were paying attention will know exactly what I'm referring to.

  O. M. G  :faint:

We KNOW that this is not true! :lol:

Locations start 1:25
Pasadena
China
Indonesia
Bangladesh
New Country in Africa WTH?
New country in Europe WTH?
back to USA

Perhaps Phil had a brain :fart and was thinking Malawi? ???

And last time I looked, Mallorca IS not a country.  :groan:

I believe after looking at the trailer with scenes from presumably every leg or at least country in AR21 that Africa may have been included. From Bangladesh perhaps teams did not go directly to Istanbul.

What if they stopped in the Seychelles? What about Grand Baie in Mauritius? It looked a lot like the sailboat scene shown.

I don't get how they are going to get flights out of Bangladesh to Africa. The only way would be a Dhaka - Singapore - Johannesburg - Africa route or a Dhaka - Dubai - Africa route, but both South African Airways and Emirates barely operate those routes at all.
Where do we go now?

It's La Palma: compare with the photo here (one image or the other has been flipped, but you get the idea).

Close, but no.  Your pic is from La Palma, in the Canary Island on the Atlantic Ocean.  TAR21 was in Palma de Mallorca, in the Baleares Islands, on the Mediterranean Sea.

IIRC, Didn't Phil say on the start line that there were 12 legs, 9 countries and 3 continents....I've never heard him mention such at the start line before.

Intro and preview caps can be discussed in those 2 threads now if you would like?

I was very much surprised by this too tbh.
In fact two teams consecutively could clearly be made out in that location.  :duno:

Wonder why they did that?

I’ll speculate something from this pic


(taken from this post)

I think it will be held in Leg 3 as part of Detour/Active RI. We can see someone sit with a burn coconut on their head, while his friend is holding a frying pan. I think it matches with the one that was mentioned earlier in Season 21’s press release:

Quote
..Teams will travel through three continents, nine countries and cover more than 25,000 miles, where they’ll be faced with a 10-story rappel in Los Angeles, frying an egg on their heads in Indonesia

I also found a video about that task. It’s some kind of traditional act/performance that involves mystical thing. But this one is a little bit more extreme because they didn't use coconut to light up the fire. Take a look:

just my two cents ;D

Something we didn't notice, is the fact that there's only 1.2 kms distance between the Centraal Station and the Scheepvaart Museum in Amsterdam, and it takes around 20 minutes walking to complete through Prins Hendrikkade.  And the location where teams (Abby & Ryan, Beekmans) were spotted in the red zone is almost at the same distance.

HEY!

Just notice the yellow-circled picture cropped from the new CBS-Amazing Race banner today..,

if it was meant to be one of the destination where teams are going this season, then it's Prambanan Temple, not very far from Yogyakarta and Borobudur Temple (but it's too far from Surabaya)

I hope it's just a design, not an actual destination...   ;)

A couple things about the Baleares leg, based on the partial info we have (of course, all spec, free to discuss and/or dismiss):

The intro caps shows the Castell Bellver and the Formentor Lighthouse (caps below).
In the Bellver cap is interesting to notice a construction that looks like a scenario right next to the well.  Despite the fact that Bellver is a place frequently used for artistic purposes, mostly the pics I found didn't show (insert) that scenario built permanently. So is a good spec to think that could be part of one task performed on the leg (RB/Detour  :duno:).  Also, Bellver is twenty minutes only from the Palma Airport, what is consistant with the sightings we had of TAR during that morning on Mallorca (the famous tweet of the crew member).
Talking about tweets, we also have another one of TAR filming on Ibiza, the island at the southwest of Mallorca the same day.  This could make sense if the leg was designed to make the teams travel north-south along the islands; and I said this, because of the Formentero cap.
The lighthouse is in the Formentor peninsula at the north of Mallorca, and for its location it could provide a plausible PitStop because of the difficulty to reach - there's only one way to go - and because it's an iconic place of the Baleares.

I like that Alenaveda! Now...how are they going to get there? Scheduled ferry? Charter boats? Should be scenic!

Just as a data, between both places there's a four hours trip, including ferry.

I was talking about Bellver and Formentero; but the route is through Ibiza Island.
You can travel either by ferry or plane.  Iberia has flights all the day between PMI-IBZ, and it takes only 35 minutes.  Let me do a little research, and I'll post it in the transportation thread.

When Phil said 9 countries this season, I think he referring to the countries they will be visiting outside the US.  Noted that he said it at the starting line, and usually the US isn't really accounted for until the final leg.  So if there is a missing country,  I think it's a new one since people like to see new places especially new countries.  Have there been a previous season of the race where during the season premiere press release doesn't mention a new country, but during the show's season run they visit a new country?  So for my speculation if there is a new country, I'm pretty sure it's in Europe.

The space between Russia and the Netherlands, could they possibly have popped down to like...Cameroon or somewhere in Africa? I mean...it isn't really going too far out of the way, we know that there is a missing leg somewhere...so maybe?

:welcome: to RFF, gigglypiggies!
 
 
But there are no missing legs, which means no new countries, sadly, although I would have loved a new African nation!

I am repeating myself, but we already HAVE our 9 countries. Including the US.
 
1-USA to China
2-Indonesia
3-Indonesia
4-Bangladesh
5-Bangladesh
6-Turkey
7-Russia
8-Russia
9-Netherlands
10-Spain
11-France
12-NYC (USA)
