I know it says no dream routes,  but I have to!

Leg 1: Phoenix, AZ, USA (Home town respect, but it'll probably be LA) > Nassau, Bahamas (I know Bora Bora was just visited, but this place NEEDS to be visited!)

Leg 2: Nassau, Bahamas > Quito, Ecuador (Quito city leg)
 
Leg 3: Quito, Ecuador > Napo Province, Ecuador (Amazon leg)

Leg 4: Napo Province, Ecuador > Lisbon, Portugal (Lisbon city leg)

Leg 5: Lisbon, Portugal > either Malta, Monaco, or Sardinia (this region is way underused)

Leg 6: either Malta, Monaco, or Sardinia > Krakow, Poland (Krakow city leg)

Leg 7: Krakow, Poland > surrounding Polish countryside, Poland (possibly copy from the Australian or Israeli tars)

Leg 8: Polish countryside, Poland > Astana, Kazakhstan (this proves my point of how awesome this place is: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2012/02/astana/ludwig-photography)

Leg 9: Astana, Kazakhstan --> Yangon, Myanmar (Myanmar needs to be visited)

Leg 10: this leg will either be a second leg in Myanmar or the first leg in China

Leg 11: southern China (not Guilin, but other really cool places like Zhangjiajie or Wulong County)

Leg 12: southern China --> Seattle, WA, USA

Great route! There is a wishlist thread here: http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,15213.1625.html in case you want to make more in the future. You're new here, so it's alright.

Africa, Africa, Africa

Keeping it really short:

Possibility: Unlikely
Been used a lot recently, producers will most likely want to rest it to avoid it becoming too repetitive/dull

Only way is if they use unique cultures/regions, like:

1.) Ethiopia- It's East Africa, which has been used a lot recently (Seychelles S16, Malawi S19, Tanzania S20), but it's ETHIOPIA. It's a culture and a people all it's own. A revisit has been long overdue.

2.) Western Central Africa- Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Rep. of Congo could all see visits. It could be the Africa that we know and love, but with a more tropical/jungle-y twist.

3.) South Africa and either Lesotho or Swaziland- The only way this will work is if they don't do the typical "we're in Africa, let's look at the poverty and the people who still live in huts! Oh, and ANIMALS!" kind of visit. More metropolitan stuff, more extreme things (world's highest bungy in Port Elizabeth), more music and culture.

Final thought: Don't be surprised if we don't see Africa this season, or maybe even next, but still keep an eye out.

What about north Africa (mainly Morocco)?

I personally feel that WRP considers the area to be off limits, though I agree that Morocco will likely be the first one they return to (just not this season).

I would expect this season will be Asia dominated this year (even though I dislike it) because of Season 22 only spending 2 legs in Asia and they typically almost always have three legs in Asia.

I agree with this apart from maybe 2 legs in NA and 1 less leg in Europe

NEW POST on FACEBOOK from Ryan:

Ryan Danz

someone on World Race Production just reached out and jokingly asked if I needed them to find my lost watch back from Leg 2 in Indonesia ...

In other words, the next season of Amazing Race just kicked off today ... as in, teams are wheels up, destinations known to only a select few, and 22 people about to embark on an experience of a lifetime that only those that have raced before them will ever truly understand. Best of luck and looking forward to seeing their journey play out on screen.

Please not another early Indonesian leg if they're going back... Although it highly won't happen... :res:
Because if they're going to Indonesia right now, especially in Jakarta, I'll be devastated because I'm in my final exam week! :groan:

If it had started today, there would be at least one tweet about it. I don't believe it. Maybe they mean this weekend.

I think he may imply that the teams have reached the start city and are sequestered.
Does anybody know how many days before the beginning the teams in general arrive at the start city?

I hope they visit Bangladesh again and this time I can catch them on the streets :P They treat Bangladesh like India and the tough African countries, they only go to the non-beautiful locations and give them very hard tasks. I am predicting this time there's gonna be 2-3 legs in South America and may focus a bit on North America too. Maybe,
 
Leg1: Florida-Mexico
Leg2: Mexico
Leg3: Mexico-Uruguay
Leg4: Uruguay-Morocco
Leg5: Morocco-Czech Republic
Leg6: Czech Republic-Slovakia/Poland
Leg7: Slovakia/Poland
Leg8: Slovakia/Poland-Belarus/Ukraine
Leg9: Belarus/Ukraine-Nepal-Bhutan
Leg10: Bhutan-Philippines
Leg11: Philippines-Canada (Why don't they visit Canada???)
Leg12: Canada-Seattle(USA)/San-Francisco(USA)
