1) BvM seems to have a penchant in the even numbered races for highlighting the Christmas season in Central Europe. Starting with TAR14,WRP started filming the race in Nov/Sec for even numbered races.
22 -- Alps Interlaken, Suisse and Berlin
20 -- Alps Torino and Fussen
18 -- Alps Vienna to Salzburg to Zermatt
16 -- Hamburg and Champagne District, France
14 -- Alps Locano and Interlaken, Suisse
12 -- Netherlands, Lithuania, Croatia, and Italy (but this was filmed in summer, not in the Nov/Dec timeframe)
   
2) BvM also likes to put teams on trains and self drive when in Central Europe. It seems we usually get about a 50% success rate on spotting teams on trains in Europe.

So here is my analysis and speculation.........
Leg 7 is Rome
Leg 8/9  Train from Rome to the Alps (ether Suisse, Bavaria or Austria). It is easy to get to either western or central Suisse or western Austria from Rome. Possible self driving in these legs.
Leg 10 is Seville, Espana
Leg 11  Since they flew from London to the end city (Las Vegas), they probably did this leg in the UK somewhere.
Leg 12 Las Vegas
.  When were they confirmed to have flew to Vegas from london :cmas5

Taking into consideration you are new here..........

1) London was the only flight connection that fit the timeline for arrival in Las Vegas (check Transportation thread for flights analysis)

but mainly because

2) Peach said so.......

Dr. Rox, what about Morocco? Its getting close to Spain and shares the ferry link between Tangier, Morocco to Algeciras, Spain. Algeciras is few kilometers away southeast of Seville.

TAR has been on that ferry in TAR 3, IIRC, and it would be awkward with their filming schedule to have teams in Rome, travel to Tangier for one leg, and then take a ferry to Spain. I'm not sure that is the way production would do it now except as a substitute leg. The pattern in the past ten seasons or so is to plant legs along the way back to the US.
I would not assume that the 11th leg was in the UK (as it was in season 22, btw) simply because the teams flew to LV from London; London could have been the connection from many places in western Europe outside the UK. I'm not saying that anywhere in the UK isn't possible, just that we cannot limit locales to the UK just because teams flew out from London. (As far as it goes, Wales is overdue for a leg now that recent seasons have been to both Northern Ireland and Scotland and no task has ever been filmed in Wales, especially Cardiff, which as some of us know from Torchwood is a beautiful place, and Doctor Who, which marked its 50th anniversary last month, is filmed there and there's both the BBC studio complex and a new Doctor Who Experience meseum there. That would be an interesting locale if TPTB paid attention to the worldwide influence of that show, as they did with Sherlock Holmes in a couple of tasks in London in an earlier TAR season.

If only TPTB would use other great shows for inspiration for Tasks. Especially in Japan.

Do you guys think that the boot list that's been going around here is accurate? I chose to not view it yet, but what I gathered is
Show content
Dave & Connor won, while Caroline & Jennifer and Brendon & Rachel/Leo & Jamal are in the Final 3.

I personally hope this is what happened, but what about you guys?

Do we even know that Seville is leg 10? Could it be the leg 9 with two legs in between it and the finale? Also, I thought I saw somewhere on these boards that there was a leg in Paris, is this true?

In the live sightings thread, a newspaper in Seville said there were 5 teams racing in the 10th episode. How they come up with the 10th as being the episode number we do not know. We can tell the afghanimals are there. We also see the cowboys and brenchel there, all in the live sightings thread.

It is possible to have 5 teams in leg 10, so long as it is an elimination point, and then there would be 4 teams in leg 11, which is usually the final elimination point in a 12 leg race.

I wouldn't vouch for any boot list at this point because the uncertainty and lack of collaborating evidence. The best I thing we can hope for is a probability, but I doubt we're that far along yet with the general lack of information.

So can we assume Cowboys, Afghanimals, Country, Brenchel and Father/Son are the F5 per the live sightings?
I'm a mystery you will never find out about.

WinTar, I don't think we can make such an assumption on the current information available. At best, you could offer it as a hypothesis, but that alone is not proof and shouldn't be used as a fact.
We need to find more data, along the lines several of us have been pointing out, to help evaluation all possible explanations, and not just that one.

You can assume they were NOT on the sequester flight. :tup:

Now that we know that teams 4, 5 and 6 tagged along for the final legs rather than heading to sequester, some of the sightings of teams hanging around at the pit stop may not be as meaningful as we've been thinking.

Team #6 was at sequester. Teams #4 and #5 have continued following production for most races, not just this one.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Which means they were most likely still in the Race.  In the case of Brendon & Rachel, I have only one thing to say:  Damn!

I think we're lucky enough with Brenchel not getting eliminated in 8th. Now I tend to believe they were decoying in Seville... :/

Or eliminated there.  Although I wish they were out earlier, if Brendon & Rachel get eliminated before the finals I'll take it.

Based on the fact that those six teams have been spotted flying from Thailand to Seoul, we can assume that Sequesterville was in Thailand.
Also, knowing that Twinnies, M/M, and Youtube were eliminated before Leg 5, an assuming that Margie & Luke were eliminated in Sri Lanka, and that the Globetrotters were at the Pit Stop with the Afghanimals, we can assume that the John & Jessica were eliminated in 7th in Rome, meaning that the Globetrotters were eliminated in 6th somewhere between Rome and Seville.

I had a hunch KL was last minute, because alcohol in a conservative Muslim country seemed odd. I hope it wasn't Laos that wasn't cancelled again.

Really think it is The Philippines that got cancelled. China Leg 2 seemed like a last minute addition too. Imagine if 2 Philippines legs were cancelled in the last minute. :cmas4
