"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."

wait, 4 continents? it means we have Africa this season ...

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.

The easiest way to get the extra country and continent would be to slide in a quick Morocco visit after Seville. But not sure there is time there. :duno:

What's there between Italy and Spain? I don't think I have found anything about that
Busy, but will come back <3

I'm very surprised they released the cast photo with Bopper instead of Mallory?
Imagine Bopper was racing and we just never spotted him, and Mallory was working with the production crew!!  :funny:

And can we assume that this dramatic start line twist they're talking about is only false spec??  :res:

???

As we all know, Bopper started the race. He was replaced last minute by Mallory. Pretty straightforward. And exactly what Chateau reported from the start line.

Seriously?? :o
I knew Bopper had been asked, but never realised how far into planning he was. I thought he pulled out once he was asked, and they just used Mallory instead.

It'll be interesting to see whether CBS release an updated cast photo featuring Mallory, or what way they'll work it.  ???

They'll work it as the Start Line drama. :tup:

Bopper will be a great (scary) dramatic start line drama. Then Mallory appears very suddenly(at the airport?), so Mark can race on.

The only thing I'm confused on is how they were able to replace Bopper so fast.
They were very lucky to get her on such short notice.
But I'm sooooo happy they did!  :hearts:

Lets face it though, Bopper & Mark need to return a third time, because you can't even count this one as a come back!  :(

Even the CBS reveal states 4 continents and 9 nine countries. I wonder where in Africa they went to (If they did go to Africa)

I sadly don't see how they could squeeze in Africa... Or So America....or Antarctica...or Aus. (Well they could have but for the ill planned Malaysia Substitute legs)...

So where does that leave us? ??? Somebody drinking at work again? :funny:

Could the Kandy sighting not possibly be rolled up as part of Leg 5 (ie Colombo -> Kandy -> Colombo Rowing Club Pit Stop), or alternatively, a trip somewhere between Italy and Spain? ???

Well, we already have two legs Italy....

As best as we can tell on limited info, Kandy looks good.

During the first preview of TAR24, you could see someone rappelling on a waterfall with a Travelocity Gnome on their back. Possibly a Roadblock that takes place in Sabah, Malaysia since it is known as a land of beautiful waterfalls.

From the CBS reveal:

The Race will take them on a mission high above the city in Guangzhou,
China, rappelling down the roaring rapids of the Kiansom Waterfall in
Malaysia
, fighting with Gladiators in Rome, Italy and fueling up
vehicles in Sri Lanka.

Apart from Morocco, how about Tunisia? Could they go from Italy to Tunis for example before going to Spain?

That thought occurred to me this morning when I read that Tunisa's Parliament has finished work on a new post-Arab Spring Constitution, which was signed by its interim president and prime minister, and there hasn't been the violence seen in all of its neighbors in the past few months.

Tunisia hasn't been visited since TAR 1 IIRC, so it would make sense if it has been as safe as I'm thinking it has been.

Rome-Tunis can be found on Tunisair and Alitalia. Tunisia-Seville would probably require connecting flights back in Europe, which I tend to regard as a good way to shake up the field a little.  And a stable part of North Africa seems like a better way to pick up another continent than a really tight East African leg after Sri Lanka that probably would have required connecting through Dubai. (Though there's enough of a gap that they could have gone Rome-Ethiopia-Spain and had the dates work out, Ethiopia being one of the more stable & safe places in that region with good air access)

I thought Morocco was safer than Tunisia but if it's like that Tunisia is an option.

If you read through the press releases about this season, they all talk about the new "twist." We all know about a team not passing the starting line, so this got me thinking.

At first, we thought a certain teammate might have been injured or sick or couldn't leave the country for whatever reason. Now, however, I wonder if there is some type of SL task, with the losing team losing a teammate????

I am probably over analyzing the press releases, but sounds interesting.
