I'm gonna post this again, as I looked through every past season and compared it to the actual countries that had clues in:

I compared my total countries visited for each season with Phil's total, and he includes USA MOST of the time, but not all. There's only a few discrepancies:

In S3, England and Scotland are counted separately, but that could be counted either way.
In S9, Phil says 9 countries, but there are clearly 10 visited, so I can only assume they didn't count the USA this season. Brazil, Russia, Germany, Italy, Greece, Oman, Australia, Thailand, Japan and the USA all have tasks in them.
In S15, Phil says 8 countries, but there are 9 visited, so again, the USA isn't counted. Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, UAE, Netherlands, Sweden, Estonia, Czech Republic and USA all have tasks in them.
In S20, Phil says 9 countries, which would imply the exclusion of Austria or USA. I'm inclined to agree with Airlinesguy and say that this time, the USA was excluded.

So 2 or 3 times, Phil has excluded the USA, possible in the most recent season. I definitely don't think we can say for sure that the missing leg isn't in a new country.. (My money's on Slovakia!)

But then again, pre-race press releases usually mention the newest countries..

Im curious about something. Has there ever been a time where a press release about a new season revealed a new country unknown by the spoilers?

Azerbaijan (20), Seychelles (16) are the two I can remember off the top of my head.

Thanks. I was just wondering. (I had a theory that WRP knew we didn't know it, so they didn't reveal it, which I know now cannot be the case.)

Paraguay (20), Indonesia, Denmark, Belgium (19), Leichtenstein (18) also fall into this category.

Denmark was found out before by Caper and Belgium had a facebook post about the pitstop

Not sure if we're reading the question the same way, but Docol and other fans spoiled the Paraguay leg as it happened, and Indonesia's got to be amongst the most stalked legs (beating even Sydney and Taipei) ever!
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

So we didn't know about Seychells, Liechtenstien, and Azerbijian until spoilers. I noticed those countries listed are all not as well known (I believe, I could be wrong) as Latvia/Slovakia. Perhaps WRP, knowing we knew all but that country (?), they didn't tell us since its not as "well known" as Latvia/Slovakia.
Sorry, I bet this sounds confusing. :gaah:

If Neobie's presumptions are right, the missing leg is in Lithuania, already visited in TAR12; a season that - what a coincidence - also had a leg in the Netherlands.

Saying again:

We already have 9 countries. :)

I'm also one of those (sadly) thinking that there's no new country, but I'd be uber excited about that, because I live in Lithuania and it was already super cool to see my country featured in TAR12  :hearts:  :hearts:

But sorry, perhaps I missed something - according to what presumptions could the missing leg be in Lithuania?
