PLEASE...PLEASE..DO THAT...

There's also possiblity of splitting teams up... or the stand-by tickets run out of sales...so they need to look for alternative flights (DPS could be one of them)

Spammed his email, viber, we chat messenger and direct messaged him on twitter already. Last I heard from him was "I'm in Ubud cycling this afternoon with my family." an hour ago...

If teams need to connect to Singapore... and they flew via Bali,

They could possibly be on QZ8494 to SGP (arriving at 3:30pm), or
S Q 943 arriving at 3.35pm, or

VF 242  Valu Air arriving at 4.45pm,

or JQ 116 Jet Star arriving at 4.55pm (via Perth)

that's what I'm guessing.

Unless something went horribly wrong and a team got delayed, the next flight arriving in Singapore from Bali would be at 6:25pm

*all timings are local Singapore time*


My voice is running dry and calling a ton of major tourist attractions here to ask if anyone is filming later today. Came up empty, with most staff not knowing what I'm talking about... RE: Zoo, Bird Park, Marina Bay Sands, Flyer, Universal Studios, Resorts World Sentosa, Raffles Hotel, National Library

*just incase they might have a leg here*

This is old and I don't know if it has been discovered yet so I'll post it here. Maybe it helps.
On the austria leg teams 7 & 9 from here http://i.imgur.com/Q2tEpgy.jpg were still racing
I contacted someone who said they spotted the race and just got the reply. This is the only info I got so far, but I'll ask for more maybe it helps

Guys, since I'd put this a speculation thing for TAR 23 but I'd found a twitter message from this Filipina girl just today:

But on the picture link on her instagram account you could see the board sign that said KARST MOUNTAIN ELEPHANT CAVE TARP Leg 11.  It could be a year old pic for the Philippine version of TAR but if she's telling the truth or if she's giving us a clue that TAR 23 will finally go to my country [the Philippines] and go to that place and it was previously raced for the TARP season 1, then that's great imho.

There are a lot of tropical storms in the Philippines at this time of the year. :(
They should come to the Philippines on November or December. The traffic during the Christmas season should make things more dramatic. :hearts:

I see a problem with Singapore being the next destination. That would be backtracking. It's possible that it's a connection point, but thats about it.

If teams flew out of Abu Dhabi direct to Singapore, there is only one flight daily that arrives at 22:20h local Singapore time. How many teams did teams see on the BKK-Singapore flight that is the question cause this would be the earlier one arriving direct.

Sorry haven't had a chance to check on the sight as often as I've wanted to lately... So I may be a little behind but I have just a couple questions.

Does anyone know for sure how many teams are remaining?
Was the Bandung leg that zouly gave the report on a NEL or were the pink girls eliminated?

Just wondering if we were able to come to a final verdict or if those answers are still unknown.

Also we are getting pretty close to the finale. Just wondering where everyone thinks the final leg will take place and where everyone would like the final leg to be. Personally I was a fan of the Hawaii finale in tar 20 but since that was so recent I doubt they will go back.

What about another finish in anchorage or a similar Alaskan city like Juno or Fairbanks. It's beautiful in Alaska this time of year

The spoilers from Bandung are very clear. 5 teams remaining, one eliminated.

Works for me!

Yes that's what I thought, but then people started saying they thought it was a NEL so I wasn't sure

I don't believe we ever get confirmation if that was an elimination leg or not. If that was Leg 9 like I thought it was, it would actually have to of been a NEL.

What we need is an update to that timeline to reflect the current information.

(I accidentally posted this on the timeline thread, but I meant to put it here):

I think I speak for more than just myself when I say that this season in general has very confusing spoilers- there going back & forth, backtracking, no one can quite confirm some locations, we don't know who made it to where. 


I have a few questions that I can't seem to find the answers to anywhere on this site:

1.) Was there a leg in Doha, Qatar?
2.) I heard mention of a leg in Abu Dhabi, UAE- are we sure about this? I didn't see any sightings or tweets. Also, if there was a leg here, are we sure they went to Bandung, Indonesia straight from here? Isn't that kind of a stretch going from the Middle East straight to Southeast Asia?
3.) Are there 1 or 2 legs in Banding, Indonesia?
4.) Is the Bandung, Indonesia leg a NEL or an EL leg? I've heard both coming from numerous sources.
5.) What's the whole deal about Singapore? Was there a leg there, was it just a connection, etc. I couldn't tell.
6.) I heard that they were in Bali. Is this another leg, or a connection?
7.) I've also heard that they were going to Australia. Is this just pure spec or are there sightings?
8.) So far, we are 100% sure they've been to Chile, Portugal, Norway, Poland, Austria, and Indonesia. So far there are no new countries. Are we sure that somewhere between Austria and Indonesia they didn't visit a new country, even for just 1 leg?

I'm so sorry I have so many questions  . It would would be great if any of you guys could answer even one of these. Thanks!

6.) I heard that they were in Bali. Is this another leg, or a connection? Only a POSSIBLE connection>pretty much did not happen.
7.) I've also heard that they were going to Australia. Is this just pure spec or are there sightings? Possible routing, spec only.
8.) So far, we are 100% sure they've been to Chile, Portugal, Norway, Poland, Austria, and Indonesia. So far there are no new countries. Are we sure that somewhere between Austria and Indonesia they didn't visit a new country, even for just 1 leg? :duno:

We did lose them some days. You really never know. For all you know they may be on a flight to North Korea now.
