For the Malaysia connections, it might be due to... you guessed it, BUDGET! :whoop: Taking a high-speed or fuel-powered train to Sabah, Malaysia from Guangzhou ).


I think plane tickets to Melbourne are cheaper than train/ferry tickets to Malaysia from China but that's just me.  :cmaslol

You know, I wonder what happened to the US$1 million they saved when Abbie & Ryan were eliminated in Season 21, surely they didn't spend it all up on TAR 22 and 23?

That money was to be the proceeds of an event insurance policy that could be paid out if the event happened. It was never actual cash sitting around in a bank vault waiting to be paid out. All production did was pay the premium for the coverage.

If finale is in Vegas, why there no sighting? maybe because hot air? Or Spoiler hunter is not there? Usually finish mat is located in no one can see without permission area. Or go to another area???  :cmas5  :cmas11  :cmas19
Our team is not our feminine is not my care and I only care about female team to win or final 3!

Roif, if you read this thread and the live sightings thread, then you would know that this finale was at night and the weather was winter cold (winter weather warnings were ongoing that night in the region around Las Vegas). That means it is much more difficult for bystanders to see things going on and this, post anything on Twitter or Facebook; and harder to have a read where the final mat was.

I'd assume that we will have our second ever in doors finish seeing as it's a night leg finale.

:whoop: Unless it is rainy, dangerously windy, or blizzarding, I really don't see the point of setting up a Finish Line indoors.

Knowing it's Vegas, the only places for a Finish Line would be inside or outside the city because of the amount of people.

So people won't see them racing and spoil the results. That's likely why they did it in New York City a couple of seasons back.

It still surprises me that we had no sightings at all, unless the information that's floating around about the finish order is from a sighting report.

I'm thinking the finish line will be at one of the major Hotels on the Strip. I'm thinking either The Mirage, Mandalay Bay, Monte Carlo or Caesars Palace.

Finish Line in a conference room? Yeah, that sounds amazingly beautiful. :funny:

Or... since Las Vegas is known for their lush golf courses, maybe we'll have another TAR14 and finish at a golf course. Hosting the "big mat" at a MAJOR hotel could spill the beans easily. That's why in TAR15, the Finish Line was at a private property.

You know what, I have a gut and heart feeling that a golf course is the Finish Line median. Googled it and found the Golf Digest website giving me the gold mine of ALL 52 courses (not just the top 25) within the Las Vegas area, map included.
:yess:
http://www.golfdigest.com/golf-courses/2011-11/25-top-courses-in-las-vegas

Overlooking a scenic setting near the end of the episode, I'd say the best bets of the location of the "big mat" are the Paiute Golf Resort... Arroyo Golf Club... and Shadow Creek.

We have had golf course finishes before, they work well. But in the dark at night? Not so sure how that would play out.

Perhaps in like the club room or close to the club room for best lighting.

I'd suspect the golf course managers temporarily setting up pagoda garden lighting fixtures from Home Depot or something for teams to follow.

Okay, let's start thinking from the scratch pad. :wine:

THINGS WE SPEC. OR KNOW ABOUT LEG 12:
- Las Vegas is confirmed (in radio signal distances) :tup:
- ZERO live sightings and/or blurbs of final 3 :o
- Night Leg (this is crucial since most POI's start closing for the day)
- F3 arrived in LV at a near 7:00 P.M.
- Finish Line speculated to be at a golf course

Okay, let's think night. Most visitors are likely to be eating dinner, playing at a casino, or watching Jaymes & James during this time so those Strip hotels are likely to be out of the question. I think immediately after touching down, teams had to take a taxi to Red Rock Canyon to find a clue box before the roads turn pitch black. Returning back into the city, teams may have had to find a hotel & casino, but not on the Strip so to avoid publicity. What I think is the Tropicana was visited. It remains one of the oldest hotels in Las Vegas

What about Hoover Dam as a finish line? I have been there last September, at night, and I was the only one. So it's a perfect spot to hide when you do not wanna be seen. Plus illuminated Hoover Dam looks great at night.

I think the final leg would be like: 1. Arrival to LAS, 2. Roadblock/Detour @ Las Vegas or (transfer by helicopter to) Boulder City, 3. Transfer to Hoover Dam area, 4. Final task (bungee jumping from Mike O'Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge would be great), 5. Finish Line at Hoover Dam. Go, go, go!!!

AFAIK, Joey & Meghan and Brenchel started tweeting after the Race and they were in the Mirage. It might have been either our Finish Line or Final Sequester.

??? The Mirage Casino & Resort is used at a task in Cirque du Soleil Love theatre, in season 15.
Finish Line? Golf course is closed in what time? Possibly closed. Or no. At that time the climate is mild cold and its . It unlikely that finish line is in outdoors, since the weather is too hot humid and mild cold.
The finish line is either in hotel casino conference room or a secret room or a unused room or a suite or the Axis at Planet Hollywood (formerly PH Live, Ph Theatres for the Performing Arts, Theatre for the Performing Arts, Aladdin Theatre for the Performing Arts)??? I dont know.
Stratosphere? Riviera? Circus Circus? Mirage? Encore? Wynn? Caesars? Paris? Bellagio? Planet Hollywood? MGM? CityCenter? Mandalay Bay? Monte Carlo? Tropicana? Luxor? Excalibur? Flamingo? Venetian? Treasure Island? LVH? Rio All-Suite (The place where Chippies performs)? Ballys? Orleans? Hard Rock? Palms? Golden Nugget? Plaza? Binions? The D? Downtown Grand?

We might have had recycled places too :)

Who knows but I'm just saying, that the exact NIGHT we had our finale was when racers started tweeting and their tweet location (Brenchel,NaNa, YouTube) is all the Mirage. That just can't be a coincidence.
