My turn to speculate. I have noticed a pattern in recent seasons that may be coincidence, but still interesting. In every season since season 21, teams have visited at least one country that has only been visited once before, and even now have only been visited twice!

Bangladesh (17 & 21)
Turkey (7 & 21)
Botswana (7 & 22)
Portugal (3 & 23)
Sri Lanka (6 & 24)
Denmark (19 & 25)
Philippines (5 & 25)
Namibia (2 & 26)
Peru (7 & 26)
Zambia (1 & 27)
Mexico (3 & 28)
Greece (9 & 29)
Iceland (6 & 30)
Belgium (19 & 30)
Czech Republic (15 & 30)
Zimbabwe (27 & 30)
Croatia (12 & 31)

I think this makes sense. Most of those countries hadnít been visited since before season 10, so the newer seasons revisit them to give them a newer, better leg!

I think we can expect something similar for Season 32. I think we should look at possibilities for Costa Rica ( 8 ), Ecuador (11), Uruguay (5), Madagascar (10), Mauritius (10), Mozambique (11), and Seychelles (16), since a winter season would probably focus on the tropics and Southern Hemisphere (think season 22). In colder parts of the northern hemisphere that donít have extremely harsh winters, we could see Ireland (12), Hungary (6), or maybe even Malta again (25).

Out of all, I believe either Finland / Hungary will be re-visited in 32, following the recent trend of re-visiting at least one once-only countries.

Subsaharan Africa just got visited three seasons in a row for the first time ever, so the continent should be ruled out of contention.

Finland is too far north to be visited this time of the year.

Realistically, expect returns to Latin America and Australia.

Finland is not too far north. Many people from England visit Rovaniemi at Christmas Time to have a reindeer & snowy experience. Helsinki is easily accesible it'll just be a bit colder than the rest of Europe.

I also would like to add that South America was visited in each of seasons 26-29, and Africa in all of seasons 25-31 (minus 28 of course). So it doesnít seem fair to eliminate an entire continent (especially one with 54 different and diverse countries) just based on what happened in previous seasons.

The fact is that the last comparable visit happened during 5's St. Petersburg leg.

On the contrary, going by precedent is the most objective approach.

The show's guilty of sloppily breaking its own rules as well with 29 failing to go westward as the patterns leading up to it.

Precedent is NOT a good predictor. Lots of factors go into creating a route that most of us remain blissfully unaware of. :tup:

So this will start to film tomorrow or this weekend, right? (based on the time period from casting website)

No rumours about gimmick? Is this "regular" season?

That sucks for now. I would having to concur Granth's "post" of January filming will be having a good outcome. I am fine for it.

It is NOT filming in January Claude. Please do not post false information here. Phil has done several interviews this week saying start is SOON.
