-----------------
*At the gate, I only saw Romber and JVJ(?). I saw Charla & Mirna talking to the ticket agent getting their tickets, and cutting a bit for the camera just after they purchased them. There were two other teams and Team Guido after them. I think Team Guido was the last team in line, but again it was hard to tell, because they were in a big cluster including the 6 cameramen and sound guys assigned to them. All I know is some tall guy with kind of a big nose wearing something that looked (from a distance) like a straw cowboy hat was up at the counter talking to the agent.

* They're at Gate A7 of Miami International Airport waiting for an American Airlines flight to Quito, Ecuador
* I thought they were scheduled to leave at 3:05, but it turns out they were leaving at 3:50; so I got there too early to see all the teams
* Romber was done at the ticket counter about half an hour before Charla and Mirna. By the time Charla & Mirna left, 2 or 3 teams had caught up. Charla almost left her passport and ticket with the ticket agent. He had to call her back to get them.
* I don't know if this will help, but Rob & Amber were wearing their matching Red Sox caps, and Team Guido were wearing their fleece jackets with "Team Guido" stitched into the back. So, if the players were instructed to dress similar to the way they dressed last time they were on the show.

THE AMAZING RACE:  ALL-STARS -- The second team is eliminated in Chile.
 

USA Today
** How did Race challenge contestants who knew the drill? "We had to throw them curveball after curveball, because they all thought they knew what we were doing again," Van Munster says. So the 45,000-mile, 28-day race, which ended Dec. 19, sent them "from extreme cold to extreme heat," a desert in northern Chile to "borderline South Pole" in Antarctica.

**Ushuaia, Argentina   

 posted on Monday, Nov 27, 2006  , saw the Racers on 11/26 ??

Alter a 7 hour flight with a terrible hangover from Thanksgiving, we arrived in Ushuaia, the southern most city in the World!!!! It really feels like it…the sun rises around 4:30 AM and does not set until 10:30 PM. We went on an excursion that took us through the Beagle Channel where we stopped at several islands to see the sea lions, birds, and some famous lighthouse. The following day Dave and I headed out to the Tierra del Fuego Nacional Park. We did a few small treks and at the southern most point of the park where Route 3 ends, we ran into contestants from the AMAZING RACE!!! (that might be the most exciting thing we saw in Ushuaia) Dave and I tried to run and get in on the action but we were ignored. PS, it is soooo staged. I don't have many pics because I need my battery to last longer



UshuaiaSighter posted (11/28/06 )@ sucks at 5:13 pm.
*Hi to all. I'm doing a trip through South America and I'm now in Ushuaia, Argentina (southern most city in the world).
*About an hour ago Bill and Joe (Team Guido) entered an internet cafe/calling center (locutorio) with a cameraman and a soundman. They wanted to call a few airlines (Aerolinas Argentinas and South African Airlines). I guess they are heading to South Africa then.Sorry for the quality of the pictures. I was in a rush and the cameraman was intimidating! "

--------------------------------------------------
*Hi, me again. A few more informations:
The locutario where the pics were taken was at the corner of 25 de Mayo and San Martin in Ushuaia. It was taken at about 19h15 Ushuaia time (17h15 NYC). The sunset here is at about 22h15.
*The girl is definetly not Emily. Sorry guys. It was just a Fern.
It still takes a long time to get to Antarctica from Ushuaia, by boat at least (a few days). So if they went to Antartica, it was by small planes.
I spent the last 2 days around town and haven't seen anybody else. I also went to most of the landmarks in Ushuaia yesterday evening to try to find a pitstop, detour or roadblock, without sucess. And Ushuaia is not a big town, so I guess they just stopped in town to call. The others might have gone straight to the airport. Bill and Joe probably arrived by bus because the buses around here drop you at the corner of Maipu and 25 de Mayo. The locutario they were in would be the first you see after being dropped from a bus. So I guess the pitstop was eather in the Tierra del Fuego Natl Park, or maybe at Estancia Harberton (the biggest and oldest estancia in Tierra del Fuego, typical TAR pitstop).

*I think they already had their plane tickets out of Ushuaia to probably Buenos Aires. It's a pain to get out of Ushuaia by eather plane or bus these days. You have to book way in advance. So it would be impossible for 8-9 teams + crew to just hop on a plane. So I guess the tickets were handed to them, with 2 or 3 departing times.

*Finally, the guidos didn't look like they were in a really good mood. They had their serious face. It doesn't really indicate anything but they might have been at the middle or the back of the pack.

Maputo/Mozambique ( & Tanzania & Kenya ?) Africa ( Nov - Dec 6th? ( Note:  We are thinking 3 legs in Africa)  )

  nkatekwan posted at Twop's
Some friends of mine are Peace Corps vols in Mozambique and claim that the race came through Maputo sometime between Thanksgiving and December 7. One of the destinations was the old Portuguese fort (pictured here: http://tabisite.com/gallery_af/mozambique/91af265.jpg). Unfortunately they didn't have any other details. This does seem consistent with the spoilers that teams were on their way to South Africa, as Maputo is usually reached through Joburg

*Have they actually started racing? I know someone who supposedly was contacted to 'help with the production team', that they will be in Malaysia this weekend. Should I start camping out at the airport?
*I'm still a little iffy about this info though.. Does anyone know when/if the race has actually started? it wouldn't make sense for them to start flying into Malaysia if it's still early in the show, would it? 
*More info from my intel.. they will be in Malaysia from the 9th to 12th December . I'm trying to find out where exactly the roadblocks/detours will be so I can have more than one chance of getting their pictures.


Izad posts (on 12/10)

* 5 teams passed through Malaysia..... 4 were seen and documented 

izad adds:
*Those are the orders that they came in. Charla and Mirna got a huge lead. :) The other three teams came in close within each other.
*There five teams in this leg because I'm a good listener.
 *again, since I did not personally see the fifth team, I'm going to take it with a grain of salt..
*from what I 'heard' - an African American couple who got delayed on their flight. with the fifth team, it's not an eye-witness account like the other four, so I can't confirm if what I heard was true.. so y'all can still speculate.

fashionblue: I happened to be in Macau going back to Hong Kong on 14 Dec and I saw the Amazing Race teams there. It was obvious because the camera men were rushing to film the teams buying the ferry tickets. I recognised one of the pairs (Danny or Oswald I think) from Season 2 but he was partnering with another guy. And when I boarded the ferry, Phil was seated behind me. I casually joked, "oh so the AR teams are here huh?". He just smiled. When I asked if I could take a pic with him, he said "I'll be in deep trouble if I do that!".

You will be surprised on who the final 4 will be. I had the opportunity to see all 4 teams in action during a stop in Guam in Dec. IT was very interesting to see what goes behind the filming. It will be interesting to see what actually makes it on TV. They probably filmed for a couple of hours to get just a few minutes of final footage. When the epsiode airs, I will give you more of my take on the "realism" of the tasks accomplished.

Amazing Race Visits Guam
PNC Staff Reporter 16.DEC.06
10:22am Look out for a Guam stop in next season’s “The Amazing Race”. Guam was paid a visit by competitors of that reality TV show.
Guam was apparently a stop, and competitors were on Andersen Air Force, being filmed. The Pacific News Center contacted Air Force Officials, who confirmed the film crew was on base, but could not comment any further.

Honolulu, HI (USA) (12/16-? )

To sum up Babalu's, sisters sighting:
( posted Friday Dec 15th )
*My sister called me this morning (just before 9:00 Hawai'ii time). She's a flight attendant on Air Micronesia and said that a "bunch" of TAR All-Stars teams were on her flight from Guam to Honolulu. She was calling me from the plane, which had just landed.
* They'd stayed at Anderson Air Force Base on Guam - had gotten in the previous morning and left the following day.
*These 3 teams may not have gone to Sequesterville (or may have gone to a short-term, different Sequesterville).
*They're probably teams #6 (Guidos), #5 (Uchenna/Joyce), and #4 (Chas) / Danny & Oswald
*Kath asked Danny if Rob/Amber and some of the other racers were another plane, and he said something like, "Yeah, yeah, yeah, there's another plane."


    *indications that these were eliminees:

    • - my sister comped drinks to the people on her side of the plane, but she noticed that some of the racers on the other side were paying for drinks, which she thought they wouldn't have done if money was 
    • nobody was asking any questions about transportation, where anything in Hawai'i is, etc. They all seemed really calm and relaxed. Kathy said that Uchenna asked her how long the delay would be, but it was only to find out if he had enough time to buy the Guidos a bottle of vodka at Duty Free. 


    G'day from Australia and NZ : Our trip back was quite interesting. We left Cairns at 1:30am and flew to Guam arriving at 6:30 am. We then got a room and slept for a couple of hours and then got back on the plane had a stop over in Japan and then arrived in Hawaii for 24hours where we tried to get used to the time difference and enjoyed the last warm days of our trip. One interesting thing that occurred to us on our travels was that we ended up on a flight with the Amazing race. They were taping the next season and it was cool to see what was going on behind the scenes.
    Our trip was awesome. We met some amazing people on our way and hand some wonderful experiences. (posted on DEC 19th )

    Interviews with sequestered racers have indicated that only 5 teams were sequested in Acapulco, Mexico: 

    Reality TV World:  Did being sequestered together change your feelings for each other or for any of the other teams?

    John VitoEventually there were five teams there, so it wasn't just like one-on-one time.  We spent a lot of time with the group hanging out together.  I think we got to know people more and I think that everybody we were with are good people and I enjoyed spending the time with them to get to know them... although none of us wanted to be there.



    tvguide interview:Amazing Race's Host Gets Down and Dirty

    I was excited the other day to talk to Phil Keoghan, the host of The Amazing Race. I've watched the show religiously since Day 1 and I was always under the impression that Phil had it pretty easy. I envisioned him sitting in a cozy air conditioned room getting a call when the contestants were getting close to the mat and he'd just step out. I however was completely wrong. The super nice host told me how he normally loses about ten pounds a season, and gave me insights on some of the trials and tribulations that he and his crew faced this season alone . In addition to losing his bag at one point and having to do an emergency shopping trip, they had to change locales on a moments notice.

    "We had to change the location of a pit stop because the teams weren't going to get to a certain place at a certain time. Everything was changing and evolving. We were flying ahead to where the pit stop was going to be, and flew a number of hours to this location only to find out when we landed that the teams weren't EVER going to be able to make the route. We had to put 40 something bags back on the plane and fly all the way back again, then we ended up at a place where we weren't meant to have a pit stop, so things were a little sketchy and there were 12 of us at one point lying on the mat at three in the morning swatting mosquitos."


    "On one part of the race, the teams were so spread out that there was a **17 hour difference between first and last. The first teams were leaving and I was still waiting another five hours for the last team to come in. We always hope that if we have a long spread we're at a nice pit stop. It doesn't always work like that. If you are in the salt pans in Botswana, and the teams are spread out 14 hours, it isn't like you move from the mat to a comfortable place. You are on a salt pan for however many hours it takes, or on a junk in Hong Kong bobbing up and down for 13 hours."

    "I wash my hair on the side of the road, because a lot of times I can't get to a shower. I have a portable steamer and carry my own clothes. There's no wardrobe or makeup out there. It is just me. I'm not complaining, I love it because I don't want to be stuck in a studio. I just think it is not what people imagine. "

    "There is one pit stop early on this season when we are at the end of a dirt road, in a very dry place, the only shelter was a rain umbrella. We were just drenched with sweat. I think I went through about 14 bottles of water. The only place to sit down was on top of a cooler or an equipment case. I don't know what people imagine I'm doing. It's not like there's a trailer out there. [Laughs] But I wouldn't have it any other way."

    What happened to Reichen and Chip. I thought they were LIFE partners?  :lol3:

    Of course I got the scoop on this...Reichen and Chip were in DC the week after or of the premier of their season.  A local gay newspaper got an interview with them.

    Turns out Reichen has buddies in DC. Allegedly (LOL) Reichen said that him and chip were never married that was a CBS decision to promote it that way so they were just 'dating'. Yet as of the premier they had split - allegedly (LOL) due to stuff that came out in the race.

    I recently saw Chip on a Gay/Lesbian reality reunion show (variety of contestants) talk show about their experience. Chip/Reichen split seemed to be a sore subjuect, so I'm assuming like most break-ups in the gay community it was hard and both were  bitchy...LOL

    The only reason they would do it unless they have reconciled is the cash which makes me think they will be interesting to watch in the race.

    I know some fans are totally agains't the idea of an all star dition, but I am all for it.  Hell it would have to be better then the family edition. 

    Plus take this latest season, and how everyone said that the teams that keep winning (eric and Jeremy/ BJ & Tyler) were just competing agins't crappy racers.  Which is true to an a degree, every season has teams that just just have no chance of winning.

    I would love to see a race of seasoned racers, compete and have them all put through some serious travel and competition. 

    But if htey do this they need to keep it difficult.  No real easy locals, no real easy stunts, no stupid lame ass marketing (unless a part of a really hard stunt, I have no problem with that).

    As for Reichen and CHip, funny but the 2cd to last episode 4th season  was the fourth ever episode of the Amazing Race I watched and it was when I became hooked (its like crack).

    I had watched 2 episodes in season 2 (the final two episodes with Cha, Cha, Cha), and I was so upset that they were eliminated I didn't watch the rest of hte season.  Next season I worked during that time, and then forgot all about it.

    But being gay, I thought how cool that the two teams I say featured one very cool but somewhat sterotypical gay team (and the one team still in it that seemed to be nice people and having a ball), and hten Riechen and Chip two people in a realationship (not for me to judge, after all most all realationships end now days), and they were very driven and competitive.

    I have been hooked ever since.  And even when I hate the players (Adam, Rebecca, Kendra, Flo, Ray, Victoria, Jonathan), I still love the show.

    And with the Family Edition, and then season 9's rotating days and loss of viewers purhaps this is a way to rekindle some interest.

    CBS announced earlier that the producers of TAR had brought in a new team to develope harder and more interesting tasks for the teams to undertake.  These were the same people who developed some of the tasks for Survivor and they indeed were more difficult and more physical than anything done on TAR before.  So perhaps TPTB will be giving the series a new life starting with TAR10.  By the way, Sunday night traditionally is the most watched TV night of the whole week.

    I think this would do great ratings.  My only idea would be to NOT bring back any teams that won in the past.  That way everyone is on equal footing.  There is none of the "let's try and mess up this team because they won" crap.  I think one of the better parts of AR is the idea that most teams get along.

    I don't know most every season has drama in between the teams.

    Season one had the texan teachers who were not nice at all to Paul and Amy.

    We had the guidos who pissed everyone off, especially with airport.

    Season Two:  We had Tara and Wil pissing off Blake and Paige and at times Chris and Alex.  We had teams not get along with Gary and Dave.  We had the grannies who didn't care for Blake and Paige.

    Seaon Three:  We had the twin hunt.  We had no one really liking Ion.  We had the viewing audience not liking Flo (sorry couldn't resist).

    Season Four:  We had threats of getting brake lines, and just an early nastiness in this season that didn't to get better (just still competitive) after about half way through.

    Seaon Five:  We had Colin versus Mirna and CHarla, and several other teams at times really not getting along Chip and Kim and Karli and Kami.

    Season Six:  We had Lori and Bolo agains't the models, Everyone hating JOnathan, all the viewers hating Jonathan.  And most of us hating Victoria.  We had Freddie thratening everyone.  Just an ugly season this one (thatnk you Kris and Jon for being positive almost through the whole race).

    Season Seven:  We had Rob and Amber who didn't get along with the girl team, with Lynn and Alex and who played a fairly dirty game from the first episode to the last.  But they did entertain.  We had Ray and Denna and his feelings about the bottom feeders (nice).  Not the meanest season, but the most underhanded.

    Season Eight:  Weavers, weavers, weavers, and and weavers.

    Season Nine:  We had a bit of dislike between Fran and Barry towards Lake and Michelle, we had Mojo and the Frats not getting along.  What started as the friendliest cast, by about leg 9 or 10 turned nasty and stayed that way for about 3 episodes. 

    So a bit of team anomosity seems to exist in all season to various degrees.

    Some of what you say is true, but I think some of it was just good competition between teams.  I truly think there were some bad edits of team.  Yes there were the bad people (HWSNBN and FLO) but I think you can look at some of it as teams who were competitive with each other.  The low points of the series for me started around season 6 with HWSNBN and went downhill with Romber.  Although I don't count that Family thing as a real race I can see everyones hate of the Weavers but I think things got alot better this season and they went back to the way the show used to be (Lake's racial/idiotic comments aside).

    Can you imagine Flo, Colin and Jonathon all in the same show  :lol3:  And you would have to throw Romber in there as they would reall get Colin and Jonathon's boat!

    There were some good teams eliminated early on but if they did do the allstars they would be mostly final 4 teams.  What were the sisters names that the one sister spent like 12 hours goign through the hay stacks?

    All stars will be hard as you could not have the family season included.  since all the other seasons were 2 people.  I think there would be alot of alliances that woudl happen in an all star version.

    Possibly they would ask some of the four person teams from the family edition and delete two members of thier team? The Weavers could have the mom and the son! Woudln't we all love that?

    What if they did have one of the four person teams in the all-stars but didn't trim them down? How interesting woudl that be?

    My only fear with that is they might need to have more prearranged flights to get a team of 4 plus a crew with them.  I like it when you have to figure it out on your own not told to take one of these 3 flights.

    I like when they say "Get to Tokyo, Japan". Thats all. Nothing else. How ever you get there, is up to you.

    I like that idea better than "pick one of these 3 flight that have seats reserved".  I think it is a race and if you are able to get way ahead of other teams becuase you are that good then you should be able to.  AR should not be able to set up so many catch up points.  If they think it will make boring Tv if 1 team pulls way ahead then get better teams not just teams that fit your sterotypes.

    I don't think any of the flights should be prearranged.  The teams should just have a clue that says go to such and such country.  Let them figure out what airport to go to, where to park their car etc...  B:)
