OMG I think the amazing race is filming at Auckland airport. Always wanted a brush with a major reality tv show.

RFF's own on the ground team will be here later to fill us all in!  :hearts:

In the meantime, thanks to KIWI
 
teams are on the 730 PM flight to Christchurch and will be heading to tonight.

And sadly: The father/son team has had an accident. The father has ruptured his achilles tendon and is in a moon boot. :'(

Some teams got bunched at Wellington Airport, New Zealand in order to get to Christchurch,

so we know that Auckland and Wellington are the two airports that divided the teams into two groups...

Highlight of the day: seeing the amazing race at work :)

2 hours ago near Christchurch, New Zealand via mobile

Now, apparently I am not able to see his full profile where he works, as I need to be friend with him,

But I can conclude from his older posts and photos and relatives, that he is an aeroplane engineer as well as helicopter/small plane pilot

Some photos blurry, but some not. Tried my best :P

So waiting anxiously at the International Arrivals in AKL Auckland Airport, we saw teams arrive and immediately scramble for 'DOMESTIC TRANSFERS?!! CHRISTCHURCH  :lol:' They came out in a few groups.

1st - Winnie and Cam - ran wrong way, then back, then other way again to go to Domestic terminal on other side of Airport in a separate building at AKL.
2nd - Joey and Meghan - he is rather camp, came out excitedly, and ran to Domestic terminal transfer
3rd - Chuck and Wynona - our Alabama team, came running out, she jumped for joy as the crowd cheered (wonderful people) more on them later.
4th - Unidentified team at LAX - Few photos floating around, he's either John or Walter I believe (I peeked at their tickets on the self-issue machine :O) and she's Jennifer I believe.
5th - The purple team, quite fit, he's very tanned and quite nice. This team and the 4th place came out some 5-10 mins later.
6th - Elizabeth and Mona? - red-maroon team from LAX, booked flights with Walter and Jennifer (may be wrong names :P)
7th - Justin and ? - dudes-red team from LAX, fit and really fast, but got into some trouble when they reached the domestic terminal as well as the blondes
8th - Blondes - I said good luck to them and they said a quick thanks - in the domestic terminal they frantically asked where gate 11 was...I told them there was no gate 11 in the terminal :P haha.
9th - Big shock. Father / Son team (yellow bandanas) came out, father being wheelchaired by son, with a moon boot on, they ran straight to Domestic without stopping at the transfer but once at the terminal they were given seats up the front (guess there is some benefits :P)

Leaving our Doctor Twins and Firefighting Men as the first two out, and our parent child team going out the door it seems (may be three all male teams out straight away :O)

Anyway, once in to the domestic terminal we saw teams getting flights, Chuck and Wynona on a phone and later we chatted to a few people and learnt:

- 2 legs in Bora Bora / Tahiti
- Got a blessing in Tahiti for good luck
- Swam with sharks
- Father hurt himself racing to pitstop in a cart?! May have run over foot?? Needs surgery (on his way out)...
- Christchurch Rakaia Gorge Bridge (overnight stop?)

and learnt of Chuck and Wynona McCall, age 46 and 49 from Alabama Can't say more, but I may be on the telly box...nuff said ;)

Oooooh and I read the clue: 'fly to phil's hometown of Christchurch, New Zealand. Once there, drive yourselves to Rakaia Gorge Bridge to recieve your next clue.. and saw the immense additional info :O

No. 5 is our as yet unseen team - I believe they may go by the name Walter or John and Jennifer as the AKL ticket machine stated...

The backpack of the black guy doesn't match with the backpacks of the twins on Chateau pic from LAX.  You can see that they have blue and black ones.

A news story fresh from the New Zealand media!

http://www.guardianonline.co.nz/news/latest-news/american-amazing-race-comes-to-town/

American Amazing Race comes to town

The Amazing Race has hit Mid Canterbury.


Teams in the American version of television’s million dollar race around the world were spotted near Methven this morning taking part in a rural themed challenge at Mount Hutt Station before heading to Terrace Downs.

It’s understood the teams arrived last night and may have camped at the Rakaia Gorge overnight before jet boating on the Rakaia River early this morning.

Teams were last seen driving north through Windwhistle.


There's a picture with the story, but it doesn't show too much. It's a car with the cameraman in the front passenger seat, the sound guy in the back seat and a man driving. You can't see the other teammate.

This agrees well with what we know since I believe KiwiJay said they were headed for the Rakaia Gorge Bridge. Rapppel or bungy to the campsite?

Those locations are in a fairly small radius (5-10 miles?), so it seems reasonable. It looks like an area with scenic Alp like mountains and quite a bit of farming. There are several resorts in the area.
