ASSUMING WIKIPEDIA'S 100% ACCURACY. i doubt it would have visited a new country since the information is not leaked. Amazing race always releases information about new country being visited before airings, unless it didn't have a new country.

i think there would be two possibilities,
first, leg 8 or leg 9 being an african leg and europe as penultimate
or
leg 8 and 9 were in europe and a penultimate in south america ( just like UB )
i would've preferred the first scenario though :D
Have you read the thread? :lol:

The teams flew in from Europe into Las Vegas.

In all likelihood, we have two legs in Africa, unless either Morocco/Tunisia/etc. was visited. In any case, Africa is most likely our fourth continent.

Here are a few ideas for possible routes for the second half of the season:

leg 7: Sri Lanka -> Italy
leg 8: Italy -> West Africa
leg 9: West Africa
leg 10: West Africa -> Spain
leg 11: Spain -> UK/France
leg 12: UK/France -> USA

leg 7: Sri Lanka -> Italy
leg 8: Italy -> North Africa
leg 9: North Africa
leg 10: North Africa -> Spain
leg 11: Spain -> UK/France
leg 12: UK/France -> USA

leg 7: Sri Lanka -> Italy
leg 8: Italy -> Central Europe
leg 9: Central Europe -> North Africa
leg 10: North Africa -> Spain
leg 11: Spain -> UK/France
leg 12: UK/France -> USA

Even if it was the case that Africa was visited in between Italy and Spain, there can't be a double leg there as that would still only be 8 countries.

There could still be a double leg in Africa if a different leg has two countries visited, similar to Leg 9 of season 18. Also, there could be two African legs in a row in different countries as Africa is not a country.

What about Italy -> Morocco -> Gibraltar -> Sevilla (Spain)? Gibraltar is a country and Morocco isss in Africa. Gibraltar is also very close to Sevilla and Morocco. ;-)

Nice map Don Task! :D However, technically Gibraltar isn't a sovereign country as it is a British Overseas Territory. I also thought that there were two confirmed legs in Italy...

Woo... thanks. Indeed there's a leg in Africa, probably Morocco between Italy and Spain.

Let's check the times and dates people saw teams in Italy and Seville, Spain. That will probably give me an idea on flight (or ferry) possibilities as well as if other North/West Africa countries could fit the route.

i kinda think that those teams went  to central africa, because if they just went to northern africa, the distance won't add up to 35000 miles ( again  ASSUMING WIKIPEDIA'S ACCURACY )

Wikipedia isn't accurate. The Press Release made a mistake.

Sadly, that does NOT appear to be the case. No Africa.....   :'(

So the-most-boring-route-ever with tons of double legs, Switzerland and Wales being our unknown legs and Ethiopia being the cancelled leg is true? If so, I am gonna be extremely disappointed.  :gaah:

Will the route of Amazing Race 25 be like Leg 1 - 3 China, Leg 4 - 6 India, Leg 7 - 9 Spain, Leg 10 - 11 UK with even more lies and rubbish in press release? I'll bet that's the true! *IRONY*

Which country though? All the countries look pretty unsafe to me.

Yeah, I'm hoping for that, too.  :iok
They definitely saved up some by not doing all the casting crap and just calling past racers. Though it's pennies, it seems like everything counts now. :lol:

As much as I love the idea of another All-Stars, this race seems pretty lame. Since the producers have evolved into absolute cheapos, I predict the route will be something like this...

Leg 1: USA --> China
Leg 2: China
Leg 3: China --> Malaysia
Leg 4: Malaysia
Leg 5: Malaysia --> Sri Lanka
Leg 6: Sri Lanka
Leg 7: Sri Lanka --> Italy
Leg 8: Italy
Leg 9: Italy --> Morocco
Leg 10: Morocco --> Spain
Leg 11: Spain --> Paris, France --> London, UK
Leg 12: London, UK --> USA

Sorry CBS, but you disappoint :/

I'd agree with this prediction if there was no double leg in Italy, I highly doubt that.

Travel to China is not boring, especially for us who can not afford it. Also the challenges hopefully reveal new insights into the places or people. Neither is Malaysia or Spain boring. I like the weirdness of the bull in a ball, wonder what that challenge is? I love the scenery, especially pit stops. I love the Amazing Race. May it continue a long time.

I enjoy it too. I may have come across as a bit pessimistic towards The Amazing Race in general with my earlier comment. There are many aspects that I enjoy about this route. I personally love China, and love it when they go. Same with Malaysia. They haven't been to Sri Lanka in 18 seasons, so I am glad they are returning. However, what I am upset about is the lack of creativity in the past few seasons (save for 22). The Amazing Race is supposed to be that - amazing. But seasons like 23 and now 24 aren't. The producers don't even care anymore about making a quality competition. All they care about is making the cheapest race possible. This season is going to at least three very popular European countries (Italy, Spain, France and/or UK), all of which have been visited within the last 4 seasons (Italy in 20, Spain in 21, UK in 22, France in 21 & 22). Why not go off the beaten path with places like Malta, Belarus, or Latvia. These places are even less expensive than touristy Rome or Paris. If they go to Morocco, I'd sure be happy (Morocco is actually one of my favorite countries ever), but I know it would just be a location added by the producers to a.) give them a place to go between Italy and Spain and b.) give them bragging rights to say that they went to another continent (Africa), because a three continent race wouldn't go over well with viewers, which would result in less revenue. What is really the kicker is the fact that this is an All-Stars. It is supposed to be one of the best seasons ever. However, I would rather watch the family edition travel through exotic New Jersey than watch this train wreck. What about the excitement of Ushuaia, Zanzibar, or Liechtenstein? But no, we get to watch bulls in plastic balls. How exciting.

This post was probably just for me to vent my frustration, and I know I'll probably be getting hateful messages towards my opinions, but I mean every word I said. I am in no way saying I hate the Amazing Race. This just happens to be a disappointing route for me, and I am starting to lose faith in any chance that this show will ever be amazing again. However, I do love it, and I will watch it until it ends or I die, whichever comes first :)
