Taken on Fiskergata in Svolvaer, near the War Museum and the bus terminal.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Ok, this is the post on FB that Stylemikro found:

XXXXXXXXXX in The Amazing Race
8 hours ago.

Just seen them at Lisbon airport!

There was a follow up on this Facebook post

YYYYYYYYYY I can confirm, yesterday morning at the airport I've been with them while filming in front of the check-in queues with a friend of mine!
5 hours ago


Seeing them in the check-in queues makes it sounds like they were there to catch a flight rather then running to catch a taxi or pick up a car. I've asked him if they were leaving Lisbon or arriving.

OK, I got a reply and it should add some more confusion to the spoiler mill.

Me At the check-in queue? Were they leaving Lisbon? I thought they just arrived yesterday.

Initial Facebook Sighting Poster XXXXXXXXX They were leaving at 7am.
about an hour ago


So, it appears they left Lisbon yesterday morning. I've asked if he knows where they were going to.

I got a reply from YYYYYYYYY that indicated that he didn't know where they were going to from Lisbon.

As for the times, as best I can construct it, these are the times (all times West Coast US Pacific Standard Time)

The original post with the sighting by XXXXXXXX was at about 5 AM yesterday.
The follow up sighting message by YYYYYYYY was at about 1:50 AM today.
My first question was at around 6:50 AM today with the answer from XXXXXXXX at about 8:00 AM today.
My second question was at about 8:45 AM and the reply by XXXXXXXX was shortly after that.

At around 4:00 AM on Friday, June 14, I ran into the what I think was the Amazing Race at the Santiago airport. A friend and I went over to talk to them and asked what they were doing. They said they were filming a travel documentary about going places, but that just seemed like a cover story - some of the contestants were clearly uncomfortable talking about it. They said they didn't know where they were going next, but I later found a few contestants sitting at a gate for a flight to Buenos Aires, Argentina.

I've posted the photos I took here: http://s1335.photobucket.com/user/TARChile/library/

Thanks for the warm welcome! Unfortunately, I don't know how many teams there were in total. I think there were four (maybe five) teams there while we were checking in, but to be honest, I'm not really sure. Our flight ended up getting delayed four hours, so I had some time to explore. While I was roaming the terminal in search of food, I came across another team just coming through security at around 9:30-10:00 (although to be honest, this is a rough estimate). I didn't recognize that team from before (nor the team being interviewed at the gate), so that makes the total six or seven teams that I saw. Don't quote me on that, though, as I was running on less than an hour of sleep and distracted by my excitement at traveling with the Amazing Race - something I've actually always wanted to happen since elementary school.

Also, it turns out the blonde woman with pink tips is from the same town (Morristown, NJ) as I am! The team with the guys in blue were from Oklahoma, and I recall there was another from Chicago. For what it's worth, I don't think there were any from California; my friend is California, and I remember her expressing disappointment that none of them shared her home state.

Hi, TAR Fan here,  not sure where to post this or if its been posted  :-[
found a blog .. with some photos
What a nightmare start!
So I just had to wait a little longer in the terminal which was ok, especially since there were cameramen in the terminal following some people around. It was only when I saw the backpacks and matching colours of some of the people they were following that I thought it could be the Amazing Race, but it was very calm so I thought maybe not as they are always rushing from what you see on tv. I asked a guy with a clipboard if it was the Amazing Race and he said yes it was the latest season which is 23, so as a person who has watched all 22 races before this I was really excited to be witness to this. I have always dreamt of being somewhere in the world and seeing teams on their race, but I had never come across any of them unfortunately until now!

It was funny watching them all. There were about 6 teams that I could see in my terminal: 2 brunette girls in orange/pink, 2 big African American guys who looked like they belonged in the NFL, a couple wearing Boston strong gear, 2 guys from Oklahoma, a husband and wife team who were a little older and another older guy but I didn’t know who he was with

. So it was really interesting as a fan of the show to just sit and watch them. From my view of what was happening I think the race had just started maybe even that day. The teams were introducing themselves and were getting to know each other so it seemed like at this point no one was pissing anyone off. I have a feeling from my observations that Boston strong and the Oklahoma boys will be in an alliance though as they seemed to be getting along and were sitting together more than with any of the others. Watching them all size each other up was really interesting. It was also awesome to see them mid race and looking at the route info blue coloured clue thing that they get as they race. It was really surreal for a tv show lover like me so I was really excited to see more exciting things on another American trip. It made my plane issues more bearable at least.

I also saw someone else who was a celebrity in the terminal, but I have no idea who he is. I assume he is a sports person based on how he looked. People were asking him for photos and autographs, but I really wasn’t sure who he was and it wasn’t like I could ask him who he was. So hopefully the photo I snapped of him someone here at camp can tell me who it is and then I can tell you who he is. But still cool all the same.

I believe this is Jim Mueller of outdoors sportsman fame
