Favourite reality show <3
Though I want another Dutch version, but I think that's not going to happen, considering the trainwreck of last season.
The route though <3

I found a series of tweets from one person earlier today that sound like they could be TAR Israel:

Bianca Clements ‏@BeeEz4
So I'm on official work business & the most bizarre thing just happened!
12:45 PM - 4 Feb 13

Bianca Clements ‏@BeeEz4
I ran into the guys who were like frantically trying to figure out how to get to Port Allen. The guy was like, we're on Amazing Race!
12:46 PM - 4 Feb 13

Bianca Clements ‏@BeeEz4
So 1. I'm freaking out cause he came up to my work car a little too dramatic 2. I LOVE the AMAZING RACE!!!
12:46 PM - 4 Feb 13

Bianca Clements ‏@BeeEz4
I was scared because I thought it was a hoax or scam but then one of the other people pulls out this huge tv camera & I'm like 😳😳😳😳
12:47 PM - 4 Feb 13

Bianca Clements ‏@BeeEz4
He wanted me to give him a ride but I wAs like, Sir I'm with my job right now. But no lie if I wasn't I would have considered it!
12:48 PM - 4 Feb 13

Bianca Clements ‏@BeeEz4
Only after much analyzation because it still seems a little sketchy but let me find out that was real?!?
12:48 PM - 4 Feb 13


Times are Pacific Standard Time for the Western US. Her time would be 2 hours later in the afternoon.

Port Allen is near Baton Rouge, Louisiana and is the local port on the Mississippi River. On the surface it seems kind of an odd location to find TAR Israel and would be a 1500 mile backtrack from Las Vegas. However, I expect there is a lot of interesting things you could do in the Louisiana bayou country, so it's possible. The fact that they were asking for a ride makes me wonder if it's some version of Pekin Express that hadn't come to light before this. Perhaps it's something local.

Maybe they were at the Super Bowl yesterday. It's not that far from New Orleans. First team that cuts power to the Super Dome gets an Express Pass!   :whoa

I've asked the woman for more information. I'll pass it along if she replies.

Good work, Zouly! I had a feeling it was going to turn out to be Pekin Express. For what it's worth, the plantation is about 100 miles north of Baton Rouge and Port Allen.

For some reason, I can't find that tweet. Maybe it's been deleted?

I think the last tweet refers to the Pekin Express teams, but it's not clear. That would match freds info in the first message of this thread.

I can't save the other 3 pictures that @Kuhjo posted on instagram. I hope someone else can manage to do it. They show a cameraman filming out a window, the French team (husband and wife) posing with @Kuhjo in Mobile? and they have a large stuffed animal and finally a young guy and a cameraman in the back of a pickup truck.

I had a reply from ‏@ehvoelker about her sighting on Sunday:

Elizabeth Voelker ‏@ehvoelker
@Plaidmoon they were in cheneyville La on Sunday afternoon trying to get to pineville! A young man and his dad!
5 hrs ago


A short geography lesson here: Baton Rouge is northwest of New Orleans and Cheneyville is even further to the northwest. Pineville is a suburb of Alexandria, which is north of Cheneyville and is in more or less the center of Louisiana. So the teams headed north from baton Rogue and have headed back south and further west through Mississippi into Alabama to get to Mobile, Alabama which is located on the Gulf of Mexico.

Thanks for posting the pictures, Zouly!

I found a sighting with a picture from Miami yesterday or perhaps the day before:

Sophia Hogan ‏@sophiachogan
My dads been in Miami for less than a day and gave people from The Amazing Race a ride while filming the show and met Michael Oher..
5:23 PM Pacific Standard Time - 12 Feb 13

Sophia Hogan ‏@sophiachogan
The couple my dad drove when they were in the middle of filming The Amazing Race😂😂 pic.twitter.com/8WIBrCJ7
5:40 PM Pacific Standard Time - 12 Feb 13




The guy in the picture is identical to the guy in back of the pickup in post #15 of this thread, so now we now he was one of the racers and not a camera crew guy. Also, that he's on a M/F team.

Michael Oher is an American football player and the subject of the movie The Blind Side a few years back. It's a good movie if you haven't seen it.

I gave a ride to the girl and the cameraman in the above picture last Thurs 7 Feb.  I took them from Montgomery Alabama to Dothan Alabama.  Her boyfriend was not with her, they had been seperated by the show at the time.  Her name is Julie and she lives on Corsica.  Both her and the cameraman were very nice and I'm glad to see she is still in the race.

~The winners of the equivalent to "Amazing Race" show in France, telling us stories of their adventures!… http://instagr.am/p/VxvSgDQwCR/
7:44 p.m. Pacific Standard Time - Feb 15, 2013


It's the black m/f team that Zouly posted a picture of in Reply #31 with the bald headed man. She says they are the winners, but the caption mentions a final mission the next day (today- Saturday the 16th). If someone can grab it and post it here, it would be a big help!

It's like peeling the layers from an onion. The more I look, the more I find, even from searches I've already done. Anyway, here's a few more tweets from the last few days (and one picture from yesterday):

All times are Pacific Standard Time for the West Coast of the USA.

If you never seen them before this year, it's normal, because they won the precedent edition.


They're  probably a guest team this year.

About this picture: http://instagram.com/p/VxvSgDQwCR/, are you sure they won the game or just a step ? It's very ambiguous.

Sorry if you have to misunderstand me, i'm french  :)

Bienvenue a RFF,clement!
 :bigwelcome

Is it usual to have the last winners run as a "guest" or decoy?

And no, the Miami team shown was just first in their host's wishes I think!

No, I think it's the first time they took an old team for a new race (unusual and weird). I think they did just 1 step as guests.

The miami team's called Linda (the girl) and Salim (the boy).


I don't the names of the others teams.

I think they're are married

Reflexion: Ludovic & Samuel (old winners) are probably ''Passagers Mystčres".
A ''passager mystčre'' is a person who handicapate a team when she was chosen by an eliminated team (arrived last). On every step, it is a different ''passager mystčre''.

The last year, it were french celebrities.
This year it won't be surprising that they chosen old candidates.

The eliminated team picks who to handicap?

How can I explain you ?
The team who arrived in last postion at the step must give a ''passager mystčre" (handicap) to the team less loved by them.
And if it's a non-elimatory step, it is the team in the last position who gets the ''passager mystčre''.
It's only the ''passager mystčre'' who are able to pratice autostop and host-keeping.

Wait a minute... I found wikipedia's page of this edition of pekin express http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/P%C3%A9kin_Express_9,_le_coffre_myst%C3%A8re

Clement, thank you for all your help! Your explanations have been most helpful and you've found several things we would have otherwise missed.

I hope to be able to find a way to watch this when it airs. Also, I would like to watch last season as the problems they faced with the flooding in Australia looked like it would be interesting television from the spoilers we were finding at the time. I'll have to see if it's on Youtube.

I'm really sorry, but I just find the finale of the last editon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A3nuXo5HUZ4
Unfortunately,the ''passagers mystčres'' doesn't participate at the finale, although you can see Ludovic et Samuel ( guests of the currenty season) win.
I think they recap the whole race and ''the passager mystčre'' system.
All the others episodes of the last season were deleted :(

It's normal I helped you, because you helped me more :) It's a great pleasure to spoil with all the members of this forum.
