I mean, if I was just looking at the countries, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Italy, Spain & UK (Wales!!) really make up a good route in my opinion. Only that all those double legs ruined the first half and a lot of the tasks were.... disappointing. But had this been a route for a regular season, I wouldn't be complaining as much, especially if there were no doubles in either of China or Sri Lanka. I mean, both of those double legs could've been merged into single legs.

Overall it's just so NOT an All-Stars route :tantrum
I agree that there was no need for two legs in China, but one was a replacement leg.
However, I LOVED the two Sri Lanka legs and I think that TAR should go to Sri Lanka more often.

I'm not exactly sure where to put this, but the title for Episode 10 is "Bull Down".

Since I know that there will be U-Turn in Leg 10, and in the last U-Turn, the Afghanimals is uses to U-Turning Cowboys in first or last slot(?). Since Brenchel and Cancer are already used the U-Turn, maybe Country have been used to U-Turn other team or not. As you know, Cowboys are eliminated in leg 10.  :groan: :groan:  :res: :res:
Our team is not our feminine is not my care and I only care about female team to win or final 3!

The Europe portion of this race actually has some pretty good destinations. That said, the six legs in Asia will really drag down future opinion of the race.

I found this quote on Wikipedia:
Quote
In the original CBS press release, the race was planned to travel in four continents, through nine countries and 35,000 miles. The reason for the route modification was not disclosed.

I don't know if I can put this here...

The Bubble Bull it seems a Detour.

We can see Brenchel & Cowboys in Bubble Bull.
We can see Connor & Jamal doing Shave Ballons (RB) also.
Country singers don't appear.

I think Bubble Bull is a race across the streets and it's plenty with other random bulls who try to beat the teams. xD

One question... No SpeedBump in this All-Stars? :(

https://www.facebook.com/amazingrace/posts/10152375836184941?stream_ref=10 Great news! David Copperfield, Las Vegas's most renown illusionist, is one of our VIP guests in this season's finale. If he can't "appear" to turn this season around, nobody can. :hearts:

Behind Phil and Copperfield, there is a construction crane, a fire truck with its crew, an engulfed "bowl" of some sort, and a table-like machine or grid. I'm unsure if this is the task itself or the stage set-up/maintenance for the challenge.

As for the location, the two iconic icons are standing left across from the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. Also, the only way we are able to see the MGM neon sign, palm trees, and buildings at that specific angle and a fire truck on the right at the same time is if we were standing on a multi-level PARKING GARAGE. My first hunch is the self-parking garage at the Tropicana Hotel & Casino on East Tropicana or Monte Carlo Hotel & Casino's parking garage behind a CVS pharmacy. Sorry, I'm awful at exact locations, but any info is better than no info.

the title of the last episode of TAR 24 seems that The Cowboys will be on the final 3 but hopefully the country girls will make it there and win it. :hug?:

Cool find Rachel.  I have a slightly different take on where Phil & David are.  That's the rear view of the MGM Grand (where the Porte Couche entrance is), along with the (east) Tropicana tower, and the building with the red signage is the Hooters Casino.  So that would put then around E. Reno Ave at Giles St.  The map explains all (sorry for the large size, but there's a lot of info).  But then again I may be wrong.   ;)

David Copperfield and Phil Keoghan on The Amazing Race: All-Stars Season Finale

David created the illusion the final teams take part in during their road block. Teams have to master “the art of escape.”

I'm not so excited about that because we have already seen that before (TAR21) !

I wonder if the magic roadblock is a memory challenge? It was stated as a FINAL CHALLENGE, and I really don't want this to be like the UB finale without a memory task.

I think it has someth to do with a construction on fire that's behind Phil and Dave. And that's why there are guys from Las Vegas Fire.

My speculation is that Dave and Connor did not win, for various reasons. However, due to editing, I find it hard to rule out any of the other teams as winner possibilities.

Copperfield has always used a lot of pyrotechnics in his shows. I suspect that the spot in the Amazing Race finale is no different. Most cities and states have laws that require fire dept personel on site when pyrotechnics are used for safety reasons.

Have you watch earlier posts? I'm sure you not read earlier posts and in other threads as well. In leg 11, Afghanimals are eliminated.

I feel like one of the Legs in Italy had the Fast Forward, but nobody chose it. Orvieto perhaps since Caroline & Jenn still had to do their SB.
