The only problem I see with the Hoover Dam is WHERE would the Finish Line Mat be? Could they have it on the top of the Dam, even if it's night?  I think we'll see another indoors Finish Line Mat.

I like the thought of Hoover Dam. Red Rock Canyon too.
Red Rock Canyon can be scratched off. Way too dangerous for taxis to drive at night due to unlit roads.

RFFers, I think I found a really possible and scenic location for the Finish Line.
Paiute Golf Resort - Wolf Course - Hole 15
http://www.lasvegasgolf.com/departments/coursereviews/las-vegas-paiute-golf-resort-wolf-course-11171.htm

There is a golfing green that resembles an island with a beautiful view of a mountain behind. Teams could ride bicycles to the location by following a lighted trail... or yellow rocks. :funny: Even though everyone has really good predictions, I really think Paiute could be the location we're looking for.

I love your enthusiasm...but we have no evidence for...or against...a golf course location. But keep the spec a-coming!!

Do remember it was quite cold that night...

What about the Palms Resort  (the Real World suite) or the only other possibility that has stuck in my mind is the Chippendales Revue Theatre at the Rio?

Both are in the same area just off I-15 across the interstate from some of the other casino resorts in Vegas.

They could. There's a small sculpture garden area on the Nevada side of the Dam. Problem is that there's a public road on top of the dam, and a few scenic overlook areas, and is in general a public enough place that something would have probably leaked out if the finish line was outdoors there.

They could probably get permits to finish indoor there in the turbine room balcony that Bureau of Reclamation uses for public tours (there's a car commercial that filmed from there not too long ago). It's a speed elevator to get there, and could actually make for a pretty dramatic finish as the elevator opens, the first team sprints onto the balcony and....

The Hoover Dam was used in a two-part episode of Doctor Who during Matt Smith's second season, which also featured the desert in Utah, and exterior scenes in Washington DC. And they managed that outdoor scene in the daytime without any leaks during filming. The other thing is that there is a new bridge for highway traffic over the Colorado River just south of the Dam.

I wasn't aware of the new bridge over the Colorado river below the dam, but that would make it much less likely that filming on the dam would be noticed. I drove over the dam several times in the past and while it was interesting, it was an enormous bottleneck getting into Las Vegas from the south. Hairpin curves on both sides of the dam, slow trucks trying to get around the curves, 1 lane each direction over the top of the dam with a roughly 30 mph (50 kph) speed limit. I have no doubt that the only traffic over the dam these days would be tourists and I doubt many would be there after dark on a cold near freezing evening. The vast bulk of the traffic would be over the new bridge which would probably save 10-15 minutes getting into Las Vegas.

Looking at the new bridge on Google Earth is interesting. It casts an enormous shadow into the canyon below. It looks like the new bridge is still one lane in each direction, but I expect the speed limit is much higher.

Pure speculation, but here are some possible Las Vegas area locations that may have been visited (taking in the fact that no sightings have been come across and it was near night).

To be honest, what makes you think they would REALLY go to a school? I see nothing important about a Trapeze School in Vegas. And I don't think we should be randomly throwing in places from a website named lasvegas.com just my 2 cents  :)

Since there are no sightings, is it possible that the race did another tar 23 type finale and held most if not all of the leg in the rural areas near the city?

Trapeze act.... This was pretty close if I remember correctly. TAR 15 finale

Quote
At the Mirage's Love theater, one team member was harnessed in a bungee cord and
launched by his or her teammate in an attempt to retrieve a bouquet of flowers
dangling in the air. Once the entire bouquet was obtained, they had to hand it
to an actress acting as a flower girl to receive their next clue.

And using a travel page website is a great place to get ideas for tasks, I do it all the time.  :yess:

I love the random sites thrown in by people. that is how we find the racers sometimes. I like to research them too. I thought the night buggies was a possibility, but too hard to keep secret. The trapeze school would be awesome, lots of possibilities there. The dam is awesome too.

Oh yeah, that's right... Montreal did have a trapeze task. :groan: I was going towards an outdoors or hotel auditorium trapezing act that the people who ran the school could have set up somewhere. Nellis Dunes is still a possibility though.

And we did have a sort of trapeze task the last time the finale was in Vegas. I don't expect them to use the same locations or challenges as the last time.

More speculation of another possible location: Bootleg Canyon
This natural landscape in Boulder City could easily make a unique Finish Line or memory task location with the breathtaking, mountainous views of what the cosmetics-less state of Nevada has to offer. Or in simpler terms, "It's amazing!" :lol:

There is a zipline company called Flightlinez who relocated from the now defunct Fremont Street Experience to Bootleg Canyon. Teams could zoom down the canyon to their final task. http://www.flightlinezbootleg.com/

In addition, after finishing the task, teams could be able to ride mountain bicycles on the rugged terrain trails to the Finish Line like back in TAR4. http://www.imba.com/epics/bootleg-canyon-epic

It's a night leg so we probably won't see any of those?

Breathtaking views in the day probably isn't as good at night :lol:

We don't believe so. Personally, I was hoping they could slide in Gibraltar, but that now seems quite unlikely as well.

Peach, move this to the proper thread, I didn't know where to post this

TV Guide tweeted this article....

Exclusive: Brendon and Rachel "So Excited" to Return for Amazing Race All-Stars



Brenchel's back!

Big Brother's Brendon Villegas and Rachel Reilly are among the returning teams on The Amazing Race's upcoming All-Stars season, TVGuide.com can exclusively reveal. Because ain't nobody gonna come between Rachel and $1 million twice... right? "When you go on these reality shows, I go to win $1 million, not to just be on TV, so I'm just so excited to get a second shot at this," she tells TVGuide.com. "It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we get to do it twice."

The pair, who married in 2012, finished third on Season 20, which is as famous for eventual champs Rachel and Dave's record-breaking eight leg wins and fan favorites Bopper and Mark as it is for Brenchel's bitter feud with Vanessa and Ralph, and Rachel's patented meltdowns.

But the couple promises things will be different this time around and you might even see a new, softer side of Brenchel. See what else they have to say about their second trip around the world and what they learned from last time.

Rachel, on your Twitter bio, you had "Retired reality star," which is no longer there. So why did you unretire?
Brendon: I don't know why she would ever write that. C'mon!
Rachel: [Laughs] I know. That is so true. I wrote it because I was like, I feel like I'm getting old and tired, but it's Amazing Race, and you can't say no when they ask you. We're just so excited that we got the honor to come back on The Amazing Race again.
Brendon: And in case you haven't figured out, my wife's a little dramatic.
Rachel: A lot dramatic!

What was your reaction when you got the call? I don't think anyone is surprised they asked you back.
Rachel: We had kind of always hoped we would be asked. Brendon and I made final three on Season 20. We thought we did a pretty good job. We weren't surprised we were asked for an All-Stars season, but we were surprised it was this soon. The last one was Season 18, so we thought it would be in another year or two. But oh, my gosh! I was like jumping up and down [when they called].
Brendon: That's what usually happens. She says yes right away and I'm like, "Let's talk about this." I'm trying to do a PhD here. But of course we both wanted to do it. It's never a matter of if we want to do it, it's if can we do it and me not getting choked out by my professors at school.

I feel like you've been working toward this PhD for 10 years.
Brendon: [Laughs] Yeah, you and I both feel like it's been 10 years.

How did you approach this season knowing it's All-Stars and everyone's been through this at least once already, some twice?
Rachel: We actually didn't know that anyone was going to be on the third time. We decided that if we're doing this again, we really need to work together. I had to say to myself that I wasn't going to take the lead all the time, which I did a lot in Season 20. ... We're partners. We want to work together really well and make sure that our team was the strongest. We had the mindset of being focused on the Race. If we have an issue, we'll deal with the issue after the leg is over.

How did that work out for you guys generally speaking?
Brendon: You'll see! Honestly, for us, we realized we're both individually strong competitors. We know we can be stronger together, but we just have to work well. We have to listen to each other and not fight when we disagree. Whatever comes our way, we have to tackle it and not have our attention diverted.

Would you say that's the biggest lesson you learned from last time?
Rachel: Absolutely. I learned two lessons last time: That and I cried a lot! [Laughs] I knew I had to bring it down. I knew I had to focus more on what I'm doing and not getting emotional because you can have one second of an emotional breakdown and it totally throws you off your game the entire leg. I knew I had to look at everything logically and be super-competitive and work really hard. Brendon and I had to work really hard as a team.
Brendon: Last time, we came in as newbies. We only had two months to wrap our brains around doing it and didn't have a lot of time to prepare. We were learning as we were going. This time, we wanted to be more prepared. We watched probably 10 to 12 seasons of the show. Every time we would see something that a team did that we thought was a good idea of what to bring with you, we made sure we wrote it down.
Rachel: We got on a really strict training schedule. We'd wake up at 6 o'clock in the morning, run for three miles, do yoga, lift weights anything we thought would help us, we would do. We really trained for Season 24. It's All-Stars and we knew everyone would be super-competitive.
Brendon: Rachel was training really hard. I actually got hit by a car before we left.

What? What happened?
Brendon: Yeah. I had to do some recuperating. I did some yoga and lifts here and there. I knew I would go no matter what, but I had to heal up. I ride my bike to school every day here in L.A. Somebody just took me out I flipped over the car, I landed and scraped my arm, kind of hurt my ankle a little bit.
Rachel: You need to be careful!
Brendon: If L.A. were more bike-friendly, it wouldn't have happened. But I was OK.

It sounds like you're saying there'll be fewer Rachel meltdowns this season. So there's nothing on the scale of your meltdown in Italy last time?
Rachel: Yeah. Brendon and I talked about it before the Race, like, "OK, we're definitely not doing any salami challenges." [Laughs]
Brendon: The other thing about the meltdowns is if we're doing something where it gets to the point where we're having a meltdown, we just need to stop and focus on what we need to do. Deal with the emotions later. I'm sure you'll never be disappointed by Rachel in any capacity though!

Are we going to see a different side of Brenchel?
Rachel: Absolutely. Last time, Brendon and I had just come off Big Brother. We were newly engaged. You have a lot of issues to deal with. This time, we're married. All the stupid stuff, like not trusting your partner or in the back of your head you think they don't have your back that's all gone. I think people will see that we're more comfortable with our relationship in general. You can tell we're a little more mature, we've learned a lot of lessons over four seasons of reality shows. We're married. Brendon can't leave me! [Laughs]
Brendon: So romantic! But don't mistake that for us not speaking our minds when one of us is upset with the other or in any terms of the Race. We're here to win $1 million. We were on last time for the experience, see the world. This time, we're here for the money. I told Rachel we have plenty of time to make friends after it's over. ... Some people get caught up in the Race and wants to make friends. We want to win the money. And we're doing it for the baby!

Do you have something to announce?
Brendon: Not yet! But yes, I do figure it'll cost about $1 million to raise a child in L.A. We want a house and a baby.

Were you surprised by any of the teams who were brought back?
Brendon: We went online to see who was prognosticated. Of course, there were some surprises. But it's fun because everyone speculates during an All-Star season. There are a lot of great Racers who have won, who have lost. ... We have some relationships with other Racers outside of the show from different seasons. We do a lot of charity events and we see a lot of the Amazing Race people, so who they brought back was interesting to us. Some of us talk to each other and are friends, so when you get back on the Race course, it could be hard to stab somebody in the back.

Were you worried about people targeting you like last time? You guys are an easy target.
Rachel: We are! We always assume we're going to be targeted. But in an All-Stars season, it's a lot easier to blend in with the rest of the teams so that you're not as much of a target. Everyone has raced before. Brendon and I also didn't win a leg in Season 20, so we thought people shouldn't be that scared of us. There are other teams that have won a lot of challenges before.
Brendon: We were hoping to stay under the radar, but I can never assume that. I think the main thing is we were more prepared. I even had Rachel drive around L.A. navigating, practicing stick. Last time, there was a point if I had picked the Roadblock, she would've had to drive a stick shift.
Rachel: That didn't work out well. Every single time Brendon was like, "You're never driving on the Race." They made me drive on hills, which is probably the hardest thing to practice when you're driving stick. Let's just say that I'm happy Brendon had me practice.

That's one of Phil [Keoghan]'s biggest pet peeves: people who can't drive stick or swim.
Rachel: I know! As a viewer, I wonder that too. When you go on these reality shows, I go to win $1 million, not to just be on TV, so I'm just so excited to get a second shot at this. It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we get to do it twice, and I'm going to make sure we're going to practice and train as long as we need to. I always get shocked when people don't train or practice for the Race.

Would you do the show or Big Brother again? Or are you going to retire again?
Rachel: I don't think our reality career is done.
Brendon: We're going to put on Twitter that we're going to retire. [Laughs] My body's getting beat up, but I want Rachel to do it. I really want to pursue a career in medicine. I've been working toward this PhD for 10 years. I think Rachel's fun to watch and entertaining and she should pursue a career in reality and entertainment. If I can be working in a hospital and she's doing reality, that's fine with me.
Rachel: It will be a dot dot dot. I feel like our Brenchel story is always "to be continued."
Brendon: And never say never.

So you won't put your foot in your mouth again.
Rachel: Exactly. We got married on reality TV, so we obviously need to have a baby on reality TV!

The Amazing Race premieres Sunday, Feb. 23 at 8/7c on CBS.

So from that Entertainment Weekly cast reveal there was a small summary that I found interesting o

"Season 24's 11 returning teams including fan favorites The Globetrotters, The Cowboys, Dave & Connor, and more will travel through four continents and nine countries including China, Malaysia, Italy, and Sri Lanka. In a dramatic twist, one team won't even make it to the starting line! The action begins Sunday, Feb. 23 on CBS."

So they did do cast photos for Bopper & Mark AND what I find interesting is that they travel through four continents. It may be a error but who knows the season begins.
It's Clobbering Time!

Interesting to note that the summary states 4 continents as opposed to 3...

And also, countries we have do far:

US
China
Malaysia
Sri Lanka
Italy
Spain

Meaning 3 countries are missing
