Just talked to a friend who had a friend on the flight from Seattle to Juneau.  They were sitting next to a male/female pair and the female was a blonde with red tips.. The friend asked them if they were visiting someone in Juneau.  They said they were shooting a commercial here.  When the friend asked them what the commercial was about, they said they weren't sure and they would be told when they landed.   The friend thought that was a little odd. 

Then they asked, if she knew where they could find the "Lady in the Red Hat at the airport".  She did not know.  I don't know about the "Lady in the Red Hat" but I am going to the Airport tonight to find out!!

Justing pointing out that last season there was a woman in a red hat (who I believe was from production) that handed a clue out to teams at the airport in DC. Probably the same situation here.

Had a 10-hour layover in Dubai and decided to spend 8 of those hours in buses to, from, and around Abu Dhabi to scope out the legs there... Didn't actually end up with too much time to work with, and only managed to check out two locations, but they were promising ones!

Yas Marina Circuit is a confirmed location. All the staff were professional and extremely tight-lipped, but sometimes you can tell the difference between a genuine "I don't know about any television filming" and a lie. And some people don't lie very well. ;)

Teams were racing the Radical SST, which usually costs a cool AED1200 (US$326) to drive. The vehicle has two seats, with one reserved for a coach, so we can be pretty sure it's a Roadblock (or a Fast Forward exactly like TAR 15?) for one of the legs.

The Heritage Village has great views of the Abu Dhabi skyline and is close to two of TPTB's favourite hotel chains (the Hilton and the Intercontinental), making it a likely site for a visit. Didn't get anything out of the staff there, but one security officer at the gate was so intensely sure he didn't know anything that I suspect something is up. I'm guessing Pit Stop.

Another location that would make a good second Pit Stop is the Liwa Oasis outside of town. I didn't have the time to visit, but it seems like exactly the kind of place production would choose in an attraction-starved town like Abu Dhabi. This is entirely speculation (albeit an intelligent guess), but mark my words!

Photos when I get home. Got a flight to catch!

Pictures from Yas Marina Circuit and the Heritage Village in Abu Dhabi. Not much spoiler material, but we might be able to match it to vidcaps when the time comes.

This came up in a casual conversation with someone tangentially related to production, and he/she offered two locations: the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and the Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi. Since the Mosque came up in the opening sequence, there's a chance we'll see the Emirates Palace too?

Jahili Fort means they are going to al-Ain, a city on the border with Oman. (It's still within Abu Dhabi Emirate, similar to Niagara being in New York State but away from New York City.) Famous for its desert and camel market (which was recently relocated to a very modern complex behind a shopping mall). If they don't return to Abu Dhabi city that same leg, the Pit Stop should be easy to predict: either the fort or somewhere in the desert.

And WOOT I scooped Sintra!

So has anyone figured out which teams these are.



The only one I "think" I recognize is the Doctors.

If we go by shirt colors the one on the left is probably Amy (light blue)  the two on the right are Nicole&Travis (similar hight, dark blue)

But to be honest, this pic always looked strange to me, at the moment they never look like our racers to me... and I'm still not sure about it...

Here is a pic of Nicole in Santiago.......different coat and shoes......so don't think the Doctors are in that photo in Svolvaer......but possibly looks like Amy Diaz is there.
