TAR 24 Speculation and Discussion **of Spoilers**
« on: November 15, 2013, 10:06:49 AM »
This thread is the WORKZONE of the spoilers.

This is where ALL the spoiler speculation/discussion of the TAR 24 race goes, NOT in the LIVE thread. It is where we try to thrash out what the LIVE sightings mean. It is not a whoohoo thread, you can bitch and moan and squeal for joy here instead!
 
**EXCEPTIONS**

Let's try again to keep all the confirmed LOCATION info together so it is easier to find. So anything about a location we are sure of can go HERE.
 
All info about TEAMS can go in the Contestant thread HERE.
 
 
As always, per RFF's practices, we do not spoil the start location (if known) or any teams until it is believed that the teams are safely underway. We would never want to put a team in jeopardy or cause them distress or interfere with the actual running of the race. Info on future legs may also occasionally be protected for those reasons. But if you have info to share beforehand , we would love to know, so please PM or email me! Spoilers are treasured!
 
This thread will be opened once the race has actually begun.

I am starting to think this is an Unfinished Business 2.0 type season as opposed to All Stars 2.0

M/M Teams:
Herb/Nate - Second place in UB
Jet/Cord - Uturned
Dave/Connor -  Injury cost them the race
Mark/Bopper - Fell way behind in India
Leo/Jamal - Something is probably coming up in Tar23?

F/F Teams:
Caroline/Jennifer  - Out fourth; just missing final leg
Natalie/Nadiya - Out fourth; just missing final leg

M/F Teams:
Margie/Luke - Tea task in India
Brendon/Rachel - Missed helicopter in finale
Joey/Meghan - Uturned twice
John/Jessica - Eliminated with express pass.

I'm thinking it'll be called Redemption.

Guangzhou, is just up north from Hong Kong and Macau, both barely 1 hour+ away by train and even ferry.

I'm not going to criticize the casting until we learn what the rationale was; and I do agree on the surface, it does appear to be an "unfinished business" type casting; however, that could be only partially true.

And for the record, Survivor has brought back one contestant four times, until they finally won, and y'all do remember who that was.

Guangzhou hasn't been the location of tasks, but teams did have to fly there in order to reach Guilin in season 14. China is so vast with its numerous provinces and cultural differences throughout the country that it wouldn't be difficult to pick a previously unvisited locale.

I wouldn't mind India this season either, especially if Indonesia would be the alternative. And the first location does make Laos or Burma an option, and I would love to see one or both visited this season.

That's the same flight, Joab. Delta and China Southern are both part of SkyTeam so they codeshare.

I have some itineraries posted, on top of the direct flight, in the Transport thread. I believe they cover all the plausible possibilities that arrive in Guangzhou before noon on 18 Jun.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Guangzhou Evergrande just won AFC Champions League recently. Maybe this is one factor for choosing this city? :lol:

If they connect through Taipei, there is one that arrives at 10:15, the second is at 15:15.
So I hope not, too far apart. EVA air.

Zouly, I think the tweets are just about the response to the initial LAX shooting. I am seeing reports that it has come out how long it took medics to get to the fallen TSA agent at the initial shooting. I am hoping that is it.

Some (horrible) pictures here: http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Slowhatch/library/Misc (I don't think the CIA will be calling anytime soon :hides  :funny:)
The teams I recognized: Globetrotters, Twinsies, Marge/Luke, Cowboys, Connors and the Internets. The teams I didn't recognize are the green team, the aqua team (country singers?) and possibly Mark/Mallory. The flights at the counter that I noticed were BR15 and CX883.

Green looks like Jessica & John to me, aqua looks like to Caroline & Jennifer.
