Just saw Phil in Denver
He was in the lobby of the Adams Mark Hotel--with what looked like 2 assistants with clipboards. Could TAR 9 be in Denver right now?
Thanks to mwooden (spec )
So, just some shots in the dark here as to possible route map/episode order based on sightings/last night's preview/others' thoughts. Certainly some of these could end up being combined legs with other destinations we don't know about.
EP1: Denver (Red Rocks Amphitheatre
) to Sao Paulo, Brazil
EP2: Sao Paulo to Segesta, Sicily
EP3: Segesta to Corinth, Greece
(diving into canal)
EP4: Corinth to Moscow, Russia
EP5: Moscow to India ?
EP6: India to Perth, Australia (newspaper)
EP7a: Perth to Darwin (newspaper/sighting) - TBC
EP7b: Darwin to Adelaide to Singapore
EP8: Singapore to Lopburi, Thailand
EP9: Lopburi to Tokyo (shopping district, Mt. Fuji)
EP10: Tokyo to Anchorage
(sighting, red plane)
EP11: Anchorage to Denver
I think the route's pretty close, but again there will undoubtedly be some variations and other destinations.

CBS cameramen for “The Amazing Race” film two race participants Monday as they pass through Denver International Airport. The ninth installment of the reality TV show, which pits teams in an around-the-world race, starts in Colorado and is expected to air in the spring.this thread Nov 11th 2005

Word has it the contestants began arriving at 3am with instructions to go to the top of the main lighthouse for their next clue.
There was a flurry of activity at the bike hire shop - where employees had also been silenced - and lots of running around Rotto streets, said onlookers.
The Rottnest Tearooms
were charged with feeding the hungry visitors lunch, serving up biscuits, drinks and meat and salad rolls.
"It was pretty exciting", a tearoom spy said. "One of them ran around the back and asked our head chef where Fremantle Prison
Being shrewd, IC figured this must be the nest destination
and called the prison for the lowdown. It too had been gagged but Monday's public notices seem to confirm the story - a small item declared the prison would be closed on Wednesday for filming.

"The Amazing Race teams were rushed through Darwin airport to SkyCity hotel casino on Thursday night and yesterday morning they are believed to have filmed scenes at Darwin's Crocodylus Park before being whisked to a secret location."linkmore, posted on 11/ 26
This mornings papers up here in Darwin said that the latest series of TAR was being filmed here. Contestants arrived Thurs night and rushed through the airport then yesterday they filmed at the Crocodile Park (all they do there is feed the snapping handbags and have animals on display so I guess there is a challenge to feed them (usually a chicken on a string off a pole). After this the paper said the contestants were then rushed off to another secret location. If they arrived late Thur night then they have either flown in from somewhere in asia or Melb or Syd (only international flights come in from Brunei, Indonesia or Singapore).this thread

DID we see contestants from The Amazing Race in Adelaide?
Onlookers at Adelaide Airport on Sunday wondered what all the fuss was about when a desperate-looking couple attempted to book a capacity Singapore Airlines flight.
They also happened to be young, good-looking Americans carrying only backpacks, with a TV crew filming their every move.
They had boarding passes for a flight to Sydney, and after being told the Singapore Airlines flight was full, they ran back to the domestic terminal (bet they're wishing the new terminal was in operation).this thread

Okay, I have lurked on this board for a few years and this is my first attempt at a spoiler.
My brother in law works for Alaska Airlines in Anchorage, and about half an hour ago he saw 2 guys go running through the airport with a camera guy and a sound guy following them. The only description I could get out of him was that they were 2 dudes dressed alike in matching gray sweaters and blue Adidas shoes, mid 20's, and they were looking for Northwest Airlines. They spoke to a native Alaska woman in her 50's who also works there and said they were headed to Denver. They went first to Northwest counter, then Continental, then back to Alaska Airlines.

I did some detective work and called Red Rocks. I should not have bothered, the Red Rocks Online
website practicly gives it away and the gal I talked to paused when I mentioned TAR by name. Then just repeated it was closed for a "private function" from 6am to noon.
From the web site.
