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.
