Teams have boarded the direct flight from Kuala Lumpur to Colombo, but the flight's delayed.

(I don't have anything to do with it.)

Here's one of the better photos, taken about an hour ago. A racer trying to change money, but not succeeding:

I'm on transit in Kuala Lumpur. Of all times!

Earlier on, the flight was assigned here from a different boarding gate in the satellite terminal, but at the same time the trains connecting the satellite terminal and the main terminal broke down. They had to bus all the travellers stranded on the other side (none of which were our racers). That added to the delay.

Here's Jet and a cameraman waiting for the boarding gate to open:

My sincerest apologies. I've screwed up multiple times today already. (Too many flights, too little sleep, not enough food.)

I was looking at the wrong damned plane at a next-door gate. The Colombo direct flight has left; delayed because of the gate change and the train system breakdown, but it has nevertheless left.

To compensate for my error, here are three more teams that made it on the direct. ****ty photos, I'm sorry:

OK one last post to wrap things up (unless you guys have questions):

The first team I saw was Margie and Luke (7.50pm). They were running around and later went to the Jetstar counter where the photo was taken.



I hung around for a little bit until Rachel started spazzing in (in the best way) at around 8.20pm. Brendon hung around behind while Rachel asked around frantically for the Singapore Airlines counter. They got pointed to the next aisle over, and that was the last I saw of them. Didn't manage to take a photo, but they were there.

That leaves two teams unaccounted for. You'll find one of them in this group photo at the Colombo gate:



I did not see the last unaccounted team.

Sorry, maybe I missed it somewhere, but is the Direct Flight the earliest?  ???
And do we know if the delay has affected arrival times?

One last thing: While I was here in KL I relied heavily on Jobby, who helped me figure out what flights teams could possibly be trying for, and filling me in on the other spoilers from earlier today. A great mind to compare notes against, and spoiling with me every step of the way (except when the wifi fizzled out here, which was very often). So thanks Jobby!

Also kudos to the camera- and sound-men, who work really, really hard to make this show great. The ones I saw were kind enough not to yell at me, or are my ninja skills that good?

Now waiting for the flight that will finally take me home. In all the excitement I forgot to have dinner, and now I'm stuck in an empty airport on an empty stomach. Can someone send food?

The building behind Phil and the girls = Sri Lanka Exhibition & Convention Centre


(sorry for quality, enlarged it to see the similarity)

Based on Google Map



Therefore, the girls with Phil and the mat, are probably at the pitstop: Colombo Rowing Club

So I'm safely home after my flight, and here are the photos from last night (23 Nov 2013). Images shrunk for file size reasons, but if you have any reason to want a bigger version of any let me know:


7.47pm: Margie and Luke. I was on transit and had just arrived by bus from the Budget Terminal at 7.35pm, and they were the first team I saw.


7.47pm: Margie and Luke give a confessional. Well Margie gives a confessional. Couldn't hear what they were saying. Checkered shirt and red T-shirt are producer types, you'll see them again later.

Around 8.10pm: I'm at the Jetstar counter at check-in row M and quite a few others recognise Luke/Margie, yelling "I'm a fan!" and "Good luck!" while bad-surreptitiously taking photos on their phones. The cameraman and soundman don't chase them off, which struck me as weird.

Around 8.20pm: Brendon/Rachel run in and Rachel does her frantic thing: "Where's Singapore Airlines?! They told us it was check-in row M!" (It was actually check-in row L.) A worker at Jetstar points them the right way and they run over. (It was the same check-in island, just on the other side.) Luke chides: "Don't help them!"

Around 9.30pm: This stampede of people is screaming and running down the central axis of the terminal. I run over to see which team they were chasing. The cowboys can't possibly be that popular?! Asked the guy at the currency exchange: "Korean superstar." False alarm. I didn't care squat about some Korean pretty-face. I saw the teenage girls holding cardboard hearts and rolled my eyes. The currency-exchange guy also said some teams tried to change for Sri Lankan currency, but he didn't have any.


11.17pm: It took a while to get through customs and find my way to the right gate, but here's red T-shirt production guy again at the gate to the direct Colombo flight.


11.17pm: More production types. You can just about see Connor's hair.


11.17pm: Caroline/Jennifer at the back, and that's Dave next to them.


11.17pm: Globetrotters have already gone through gate security. I'm on a different flight so I can't enter.


11.17pm: Blurry photo of Caroline and Jennifer.


11.18pm: I knew that the direct flight had been delayed, so presumably teams had a frustrating wait outside the gate area. Found Jessica/John and Jet/Cord lying on the ground. Must have been an exhausting past few days.


11.18pm: Jet and cameraman. I wanted to take a selfie with a thumbs-down or gagging gesture but didn't want to risk getting spotted by production. I think the cameraman's name is Josh? Good-looking lad.


11.18pm: Cord found another corner to sleep.


11.19pm: Josh (heck, I'll just call him Josh) wakes up and stares at the weirdo watching him sleep.


11.19pm: The other teams had already gone through security (KL airport has separate security checks for each gate) and Jessica/John get up to enter.


11.19pm: Jet nudges Cord awake with his foot. I didn't really want to talk to or help either the cowboys or Jessica/John, and the other teams had already entered security, so I didn't manage to talk to any of them.


11.21pm: Josh wakes up. No one's filming right now.




11.24pm: More Jessica/John.


11.25pm: Another cameraman. Let's call him Bob.


11.25pm: Checkered shirt from earlier on, and a pretty producer girl I'd like to meet.


11.25pm: Red T-shirt and nerdy production guy.




11.26pm: More Jet/Cord. They were last to enter so I had lots of their pictures.


11.27pm: Cord and Josh.


11.31pm: Everyone else has gone downstairs for five minutes and then this producer guy runs in. He got stuck with a bottle of water (that he just bought) and whinged a little bit to have to give it up.




11.32pm: Cord tries to change money with someone (let's call him Chateau). Chateau doesn't have what Cord wants. From the photos I think he's still holding on to Malaysian ringgit; that's going to be hard to get rid of in Sri Lanka.


11.32pm: Cord's on friendly terms with black-headband producer guy. Hey, he got his bottle of water back?! (I think he emptied it.)


11.34pm: Chateau laughs at Cord's (probably bad) joke.


11.34pm: Everyone sitting together at the front of the gate.




11.35pm: Cord points the way to either the gents or to a water fountain. Now I see why black-headband-water-producer-guy wears his headband; he's balding!


11.36pm: Unflattering shot of Jessica. Just because.
