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.

On the Spanish Steps webcam? I don't see them.

Is it the crowded mess at the bottom of the stairs?

Here's an image I captured about 45 minutes ago. I can't identify any teams. Maybe you can.

Hi,
Think Dave is in grey sweater. I have seen him run down stairs on left, go out of shot and then run back up stairs on right (closest to camera). He is running with a white sheet in his hand (possibly the clue). I suspect that this is a roadblock and he keeps getting it wrong and has to go back.

I'm sure you've all noticed but if the mat is not here many webcams below this one in nearby monuments where a mat might be spotted (sorry if this is wrong)  :)

I saw the 2/3? teams jump out of taxis on the far left, production were waiting on the left side of the oval construction site --> ran to the bottom of the screen and out of view. All happened in about one minute

I missed the Dave/Connor taxi arrival but later saw Dave running without Conner, one of the country singers is now running up and down the stairs alone without her backpack. Also saw another person in a grey hoodie and another person in red running up and down the stairs, not sure if they're contestants though ???

Neobie, I'm here helping out too grabbing screenshots as I can, got some of production when teams arrived too.

Dave is running up the stairs again, saw the cowboys arrived but missed the cap cause my stream is beginning to lag ugh. Country girls still going as well

Caro and Jen still running the stairs, Jet and Cord seem to be running around on the area below the stairs, on the far left. Searching for a clue?
