the steps leading up. The citizens of Orvieto used little donkeys to carry the
water up in buckets and make the return journey unimpeded...

So it's gonna be like this, right?


Why would PHIL and CBS lie to us with the number of countries, continents and miles? It can only turn against them, it brings nothing positive. I dont belive they counted the countries wrong. It would be so amateurish and lame.

I still hope we will be heavily surprised, because there will be some exotic African country included. That would be the only thing to make TAR24's route 'the second worst after TAR8', not the worst at all.  :(

I predict Wrexham will be the site of penultimate leg. Its a largest town in North Wales.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

It was 4 continents and 9 countries with the first route (USA to China to Philippines (2) to Australia to Sri Lanka (2) to Italy (2) to Suisse to Spain to UK to USA) but they must have made a mistake. Stupid editors.

That or they are trying to sort inflate how good the route is when it isn't really that good.

Yes, that was the original route.

Show content
Original route:

USA - China - Philippines (x2) - Australia - Sri Lanka (x2) - Italy (x2) - Switzerland - Spain - UK - USA
4 continents, 9 countries, 35,000 miles
Continents: North America, Asia, Oceania, Europe

(Alternate) actual route:

USA - China (x2) - Malaysia (x2) - Sri Lanka (x2) - Italy (x2) - Switzerland - Spain - UK - USA
3 continents, 8 countries, 25,000 miles
Continents: North America, Asia, Europe

Note: The route was changed at the last minute when both of the Philippine legs were canceled due to the Typhoon, and Melbourne, Australia was abandoned. Guangzhou moved from one to two legs with the same greeters in the first two legs. Malaysia legs are the replacements of the Philippine legs.

So means no Africa nor South America.

Remember guys. WHAT WAS supposed to be remains SPECULATION. While we believe this (esp the Philippines) very likely, it CANNOT be 100% confirmed either way. SO do not present things as fact when they are  not confirmed. Remember the TAR 11 Tanzania leg? Even after all this time, what was supposed to be remains lost. :(

It seems that they are trying so hard to keep things quiet about the All Stars season that they even forgot to put the editors in the loop.

I reiterate from a much previous post - UK is confirmed? Seems possible, but wasn't France thrown into the mix as well? :duno:

Okay thanks!

I`am like i think that they, have went to great Places (could have been without 2 legs in Guangzhou, one would have been fine). But 3 continents in a Season, is not good. I want at least 4-6!

I just hope that The Amazing Race 25 kicks ass then!!!!

Uhmm, I just wanna point out, leg 1 and 2 had different greeters. I know a lot of people (including me) mistake Chinese people, but we've had close ups of those 2 greeters posted somewhere around here and they're definitely different people.

And saying yet again...while we do really THINK (based om good information) that the Philippines and Melbourne were supposed to be around this time...please do not state that this was an absolute...this will prob never be confirmed 100%. Just like TAR 11....

Are you referring to the alleged replacement of Mt. Kilimanjaro with Zanzibar?

With the Geneva pic posted by Phil, does that mean we have teams drive from Geneva to Lucerne? To me it seems like a long unnecessary drive when Zurich is closer. Is this feasible?

We're talking about classic Ford Mustangs, y'all. It depends on whether Ford owns them, or if they're from private collectors.

The insurance premiums would be massive on classic cars like those.

There was an interesting news item about the Ford Mustang on the news tonight.

50 years ago, Ford engineers disassembled a yellow 1965 Mustang and reassembled it on the observation deck of the Empire State Building and invited the media to photograph it. They repeated this photo op today, with a yellow 2015 Mustang.

Now we can see that Ford was planning ahead, since this Mustang appearance on TAR was perfectly timed to this same week. That's pretty amazing planning. (pun intended.)

It's been a bit weird not seeing any U-Turns for 7 episodes, so I kinda thought that maybe they just cut 1 from the edit because no one used it? And I think I read someone throwing this out there, but now I think it's pretty clear that this wasn't the case from JJ's exit interview:

Quote
EJ P: If given the opportunity, would you guys run the race again? And would you have a different strategy/mindset?
John:
Yes, for sure. The race really is a once in a lifetime opportunity so the fact that we got to run it twice is so cool. We'd be humbled if we got the chance to do it again and we definitely would. If we did get to do round 3 we'd probably be U-turning people like crazy. Haha, just kidding, we've actually never even seen a U-turn board. Anyways, if we got to do it a third time we'd be married by then! So maybe that's been the missing link this whole time. I bet we'd take it if we ran it as newlyweds.

Cool cars!  I suspect the local Mustang Car clubs supplied the classic cars.  :yess:

Maybe we can match the cars to the club photos.

Mustang Club of Switzerland

Mustang Club of Italy

The Ford Mustang clubs worldwide

Edited to add:   :hoot: Yep, it's the Mustang Club of Switzerland cars:

Rene Sutter's 1965 Rangoon Red Convertible

Freddy van Moos' 1971 Lime Green Boss 351

Paul Piston's 1967 Sautern Gold Hardtop GTA Louis de-Rooji's 1967 Silver Frost Hardtop  :-[

Peter Lanz's 1966 Custom Blue Shelby GT 350

(maybe) Stefan Moser's 1969 Winter Blue Mach 1 (but the air dam does not match the club photo)  :groan:

Just got this from twitter recently:

@PhilKeoghan: "Happy 50th!" to #FordMustang50 proud to work with @Ford on #AmazingRace pic.twitter.com/J9ezOE9e5s

Gd Saconnex (Grand Saconnex) is a municipality in Geneva btw. It is shown at the road sign on the right. Where were they going?

You've been duped! :snicker:



Swiss Museum of Transport, Lucerne

I hope that's a task site that would make Big Easy take another 4-hour penalty.  :funny:
