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!
