BVM interview, brought to us by sunnyca   (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,15354.msg318412.html#msg318412)

* The youngest team is a tandem of two guys in their early 20s. “They’re made for television,” Van Munster says. “They’re supersmart — and they make terrible mistakes.”

*A pair of recent divorcees in their late 20s also vie for the million-dollar prize. “They were left with some financial debt, so they really have a motive to run around the world,” he says.

*And once again, expect a serving of granola — this time with a husband-wife squad of 60-something Oregon hippies. “They’re the real thing,” says Van Munster. “They come right out of the '60s. To a lot of people, it looks almost like they’re from a different planet.”

Great find Kogs!!

I am not 100% trusting on the time "PDT" because all of their shots have that "PDT" added to the Flicker summary regardless of, or more clearly, without any real "PDT" indicator given in the camera data sets.

Post by: Zack. on April 25, 2008, 10:02:08 AM
already a picture OMG , it's really started :D

thanks kogs -- This reminds me of the Kuwait spoilers from TAR10

I'm crazy I've already started looking for guys with wrist tattos on myspace lol



It reminded me of Izad's role as SuperFan in Kuala Lumpur (if only there were more pics) - nevertheless, it's still awesome.

And if you really are that crazy, I'd say that they would probably be last active a week ago for pre-race sequester (obviously it could be sooner if he lives in LA  :funny: )

Looks doubtful. He doesn't have the TAR fanny pack provided for and used by the racers.

But there is this number 6.  That's good enough for me.

Whoever he is, he has learned to pack LIGHT!!  Nice small backpack and he belongs to Team No. 6.,

Looks like we speculated right that teams were headed to Buenos Aires via Chicago and Dulles (although no filming permits were found for either ORD or IAD.)
Title: Re: Amazing Race Contestant ?
Post by: georgiapeach on April 25, 2008, 11:23:57 AM
It is possible that if they are transiting, and don't actually film, that a permit was not needed. BuT I am rechecking all of this!

Yeah, Man candy.  I wonder if this was part of the male team mention in the spoilers or if he is part of another team (either mentioned or not).
Title: Re: Amazing Race Contestant ?
Post by: north09 on April 25, 2008, 01:56:03 PM
Yeah! I love it when this starts to happen, it always gives me something to do.

So, one thing that intrested me in the photo is that he has the X tattoo on his arm. I googled the meaning of it and got 2 answers that stood out. One menioned the person is "straight edge" and the other said it is the cross of St. Andrew. Maybe it can help with who he is later on.
Title: Re: Amazing Race Contestant ?
Post by: patlini on April 25, 2008, 02:09:17 PM
that X doesn't look like the one in the saint andrews cross

Is the tattoo an "X"?  I couldn't quite zoom in enough but it almost looked like a bird to me...but my eyes are old!

I  remembered racers having a fanny pack with a patch stitched on it with the race colors of yellow and red. I think each a team member is given one. Maybe his partner has it then?   ;)

Okay so we have so far (also in spoilers only section) but worth a post here as well.

1.  A young blonde female team in pink.

2.  Two slacker males in their early to mid twenties.

3.  A team of Hippies (older team, male and female 40-50's perhaps oder) with long white hair

and they are going to Sao Paulo....

Sweet Jesus it is season 9.

Just kidding.

4.  A Mother (apparently or a Cougar perhaps....) with her fit son.  Team #6

5.  A young male/female couple.  No other description.

And we also have confirmation on 11 total teams.

God, have we ever had this much material within four days of the starting gate for an original season.

One thing to clarify.  Are the all caucasian?

Both he and his "mom" (Team 6) have learned from previous races - pack LIGHT!   But hope they don't run into situations where they might need heavy clothing!

It's spring in the northern hemisphere(where I don't think much of AR13 will be) and early fall in the southern hemisphere(where I expect most of AR13 to be). Heavy clothing should be unnecessary either place.

I lightened the photo so you could see his face a little better, also more of the female/mom in front of him. I wish we could see more of her face.

Adding unknown contestant #3

Oh happy days are here again! I think we found them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Siem Reap Town, Cambodia
 


An Amazing Race
USA | Sunday, 4 May 2008 |
 



Sure, the highlight today should have been the magnificent visit to Angkor Wat, but I'll be the first to admit I was a little obsessed with the filming of a certain, unnamed reality show that airs on Tuesday nights on CBS, that features pairs of people adventuring on a global scavenger hunt.  I think you catch my drift.  I even got filmed helping one of the contestants find her clue and signed my life away to CBS, or at least signed away any shot of royalities from a brief glimpse of fame!  We'll definitely be watching when the new season starts to see if we can spot ourselves in the "travel documentary" that two of the contestants said they were in :)

May 4, 2008
 

We also witnessed upon arrival what appeared to be a segment being filmed for Amazing Race. Before we could take off from the dock, we had to sit and wait while they filmed some couple with backpacks stacking baskets and then jumping in the back of a truck.

Okay

Edited for being stupid.

We now have reports (some verbal, some photgraphic of these teams.

1.  A team of young blond women wearing Pink

2.  A team of young men, described as Slackers.

3.  An African American couple.

4.  A caucasian male female couple young.

5.  A team of older Hippies with long white hair (apparently ?) male and female.  40's to 50's (Damn thats old, kidding...)

6.  A young Male Hottie and his cougar (otherwise  known as Mom).  Photographic evidence.  Literally team #6.

Out of a total of 11 teams.

We have an Brown haired young adult male in blue.  This could be from the all male team, could be from the caucasian couple team, or it could be from an unknown team.

Missing anyone?

They were in Angkor Wat the same time as my group, so if you happen to see that episode, you might see one of the Cambodian guys in my group helping him find the clue (look for people in a bright green t). (http://rezworldtour.blogspot.com/2008/05/amazing-race-following-amazing-rez-haha.html)

Well if I am wrong, I will be nice to Michael for a whole season.  But the guy in blue has a longer facial plane.  More pronounced check structure.  I would guess by picture that he is also taller (also based on neck size, thinner and longer).  His hair also is going layered down (though it looks like activity has caused the front to become out of place. 

And if nothing else, no watch.  Just the blue band.

And if the photo was reversed, then it would show his tattoo.

from this pic ... at least we have 2 team and the most probaly 3 team here ...

1) Orange shirt with white headband - like from our 1st spotted guy - Mom & son team.
2) Right in front of him (1) - Man teams. Like there are reading the map or clue.
3) One guy in the yellow headband

We can see also some crews...

1) 1 with Vaude backpack (green) with crew tag (blue) - possible racer too as his backpack same as above (3). At the back of him seem like the soundman.


More likely here ... 2 Man teams and Mon&Son team .... are there in alliance?

Post by: north09 on May 06, 2008, 02:16:16 PM
Yeah, I would say the dude in the headband is a soundman. maybe if we can figure out who is on the crew on that elevator, they can lead us to the teams. After all, their cameras have to be aimed at someone.

I have to believe that there are more teams than this, probably farther behind. The blogger saw 6 teams, and assumes its the final 6, but filming just began on the 22nd of April. The girls told her it lasted a month! Thats just me though, I could be wrong.

EDIT: Kiwi's right, not the young blondes. One has dark hair on that F/F team. I was thinking that with matching t-shirts they are either best friends or related (sisters?)

The only thing is north09 is that The cameras are filming the sound man so I dont really know

and the girls may have been lying remember they are a bit "ditzy" at times from what I heard

Just another:

April 22nd: L.A and Chicago

April 23rd: Sao Paulo

April 24th: Salvador, were they spotted here on 24th or 25th

April 25-30: Unkown

this is unknown only if  the two men were right, I remeber when the Melbourne spoiler came through the guy said I dont know my mate might be lying and Santiago may be an actual stop??

I wonder:

22nd-23th April: L.A to Chicago to Sao Paulo 11 Teams

24th-26th Sao Paulo to Salvador (remember they were there 3 days if right) 10 Teams

27th-28th Santiago or somewhere 9 Teams

28th-30th Unkown!! 8 Teams

30th-2nd Asian Country 7 Teams (Non Elimination here)

3rd-5th Siem Reap, Cambodia or 7 or 6 Teams (Non Elimination here)


(something funny goes on around here)

5th-6th or 7th Dehli, India  6 Teams

I would say we have another 11 legs

Maybe, if so that is one hell of a small rucksack fits into the whole hippie philosophy, also what about the two guys talking to each other in front of the crew member with the obvious blue tags.  Also I think by looking at other people on the escalator and who they are starring at, that might help.

With all the people on that elevator, we could go on forever with possibale contestants. Just another person to consider, since no one has mentioned him yet, is the young guy behind the son.

Reflecting on it, I'm giving in to those 2 girls being the "blondes" in pink.

If you notice, most people on that elevator have little or no hand luggage, so any one with a mid to large backpack on can probably be considered as possible crew or cast

I think these are two different guys, if you compare them, their ears are shaped differently and their noses aren't the same.

I think the 2 women in the airport are the same pair spotted climbing on the mesh netting, and I also think it is possible one is the red-haired women at Angkor.

I was going over it in school today, and at 1st I had her labeled as african american female, but then when I saw her in the other photo, she looked white. But now in that photo, she looks black again. I guess theres always hope that someone spots them in India...

I think the girls have blue bandanas not tags ..that is how the crews sort them out, by what color bandana they wear ie. Son & Mom team white ,f/f team blue, M/F from behind purple etc

Okay!!

Sorry to be slow but I didn't want to post all this without sending my thank you's to the sources first!

1) Shacklebolt from TWoP who brought us the first Salvador info about the Elevador will be registering and coming to join in the fun--so please give him a warm RFF welcome and a big thank you! Without his post we might not have Salvador at all!

2) I had the great pleasure of talking directly to Justin today about what all he saw in the Santiago airport. (http://thenomadlife.blogspot.com/2008/05/my-flight-out-of-santiago.html)
He is unfamiliar with the race except for what he has gleaned from enthusiastic family--but he did an excellent job in telling me what all he saw.
Any errors are prob mine because I was writing a mile a minute!

He was in the airport on April 30th.

He saw teams, each accompanied by a camera and sound guy start arriving in the early evening.

They all appeared exhausted and after ticketing at different counters, some went for a bite to eat and some just crashed. He emphasized that he didn't know what they had been doing, but all seemed tired and dirty.

He saw teams arriving in 2 "waves".

The first prob 5 to 6 teams (some difficulty sorting out camera people from teams) arriving earlier maybe 4-5PM and the second smaller group of 1 or 2-3 arriving an hour or so later.

Re teams:

He saw 2 girls he called "the sisters" (but could have been friends also) dressed in blue shirts
2 younger teams --couples he thinks
One older gray haired maybe 45 yrs man (unclear here whether racer or production)


He points out that almost all the Int flights leave Santiago in the eve. He thinks most of the teams were going by 7+ or so. His flight left about 8.

He does recall a flight to Australia that eve, as well as several others (Houston, London, Europe)

He is going to look at a terminal map for us and let us know if he remembers more...and I hope he also will be coming here to join in the fun! :hearts:

But sadly, no pictures...

much more in a second...

And 3):

Jason who posted here in the blog that Mrs Shrek found (http://jumpingthetracks.blogspot.com/2008/05/amazing-race.html)

 about seeing the teams in Siem Reap and on to Bangkok, also very kindly spent a lot of time answering all my many questions and has sent us 3 more racer pics!

Directly from his answers to my looonggg list of questions: :-[ (y'all know me!  :lol:)

Quote
Was in Siem Reap on Bangkok Airways flight PG 924 from there to
Bangkok which left at 9:50am and arrived at 10:30am.
All of my pics are in Bangkok and I guess I can send you the rest.

Here's my breakdown of the contestants:
2 girls, both from Texas, one blond, one brunette.
A young guy with spikey hair (college age, red shirt, orange pack,
white headband in the escalator pic) and his mother.
A young couple (pic of them from behind on my blog), probably mid-20s.
Another guy and girl but not a couple, early 20s.
2 frat boys.  One was wearing an AEPi shirt from Arizona State dated
2006 and the other was the jew-fro kid with the yellow headband.  He's
definitely a racer.

I can't remember the last contestants now bu t there was another pair.

Green backpack guys are camera/sound guys.  One sound guy who sat in
my row saw me taking pics and just smiled and nodded.   Was pretty
cool actually.
I didn't notice an older grey haired guy as a contestant.

Apparently they were only in Bangkok for a few hours and then off to
Delhi so most of them ran directly to the international transfers
terminal and didn't pass through customs.  I have no idea who was
leading then.  I've actually never watched TAR so I was a little in
the dark as to what was even going on.

As for Delhi, the racers didn't get into it, just said it was obscure and something that they couldn't find by just googling it so they were looking for a local contact.  And this all happened yesterday morning (Tuesday morning, Thailand time) so I would think they either just got to India or are on their way.  Actually, now that I think about it, one of them mentioned that they had a 4 hour layover in Bangkok before leaving so they should be in Delhi. 


There were no African American teams. 

And Jason will be joining us soon too so ya'll can give him a big round of applause and ask him yourself all the things I may have forgotten!

3 more pics coming in a few--will add them here as soon as I get them ready!!!

Post by: jumpingthetracks on May 07, 2008, 04:27:24 AM
Hey everyone.  Glad I could help with the Bangkok pics and info.  As Peach posted, I can definitely identify 5 teams and think there was another but can't be sure.  I know that sucks because you guys wanna know if people got kicked off recently.  Sorry about that.  Actually, I was chatting with a crew member in the customs line when they told me it was a documentary and I asked how many people there are in the "movie" and just threw 10 out there as a number and he said yeah so maybe there are only 5 teams left. 

I can definitely say that the frat guys are the guys in my second set of pics, one with a yellow headband, one with a yellow hat.  They were doing pullups on the bus ride from the plane.  The 2 girls, one blond/reddish hair, one brunette, both from Texas.  The couple with their backs to me in the other shot is a team, they had a number on the packs.  Don't remember what it was.  Then there's the young guy with the spikey hair and his mother and another M/F who are together but almost positive they're not a couple.  That's all I saw in terms of contestants.

I can definitely say there was no african american team.  There was one african american guy but he was a sound guy.  That's it. 

And the girls definitely passed through customs when the rest went another way.  And in the picture with them, the black line to the left is the back of a thai lady's head.  Airport security or information person trying to help them.  I left them when they were still by the baggage claim trying to figure out what to do.

What else?  ummmmm, I didn't see any older couple with the group.  We were pretty much waiting in the small Siem Reap airport together for over an hour so I got a pretty good look at everyone that was there. 

Again, glad to help as much as I can.  I'm offline for a bit so may not respond quickly if anyone has any questions.  I guess I'll have to start watching TAR now  ;)

I think the guy on the train and the guy in the blue shirt is the same person.

In the train pic, he seems to have a blue shirt underneath his purple shirt, and a chain, just like the guy in the blue shirt picture.

eta: Oh, apparently that "chain" is actually sunglasses. Lol, close enough.

I wondered if this girl could be the reddish blonde half of the texas girls?
And I thought I saw a camera on the shoulder of this blue guy? (or is that a reflection?) The sound men seem to wear the big green packs, while the camera men have a lighter grey pack. He isn't dressed in a tan colour though, so I'm not sure.

Title: Re: Amazing Race Contestant (s)
Post by: mswood on May 07, 2008, 03:03:49 PM
I think its the same guy as well.

1.  Hair.  

Side View (by himself)  Brown hair, not a straight cut in back, combed back, with the front having a little lift to it.  Blue under shirt and sun glasses on band.  Side burns near end of ear lobe.

Back View:  Brown hair, not cut straight in back.  Combed back with the front having more lift to it.  Blue shirt (and using photoshop, nearly identical shade of blue), a band around his neck.

One other thing Side view's right wrist has a colored band around it.  (we only see the opposing wrist in each shot).  Back view has a colored band around left wrist.

I think it really points to being the same guy and thus his partner. And they have a similar neck size.

The only difference is that in the photo with the female the hair appears a sandier color.  Hard to tell if that might be a lighting issue though.

Hey so we only have 9 teams but so --we lose the pinkys & Hippies and 2 other teams somewhere between South America & God only knows where and then the African American teams in Siem Reap?

So something isn't right? We have pictures of 6 teams in and 5 leaving Cambodia sans the African American team ???

I don't agree that the petite redhead is one of the F/F team ..she goes somewhere else but with who? Makes me think there was no African American team afterall? Justin did not see them in Santiago but that could mean anything, like they were ahead? I dunno?

My guess at it is there are 7 teams left, not 6. We only saw 6 boats in Cambodia, and I think the 7th team could have went and retrieved a fast forward, thus no boat would be needed. Also, that team would be ahead, so they might had not been seen at the airport going to India.

Thats not true, if there were 7 teams then there had to be 7 boats, 6 teams 6 boats etc. FF or not.  And yeah theres always a chance that a team was ahead, but way ahead?

Makes me think there was no African American team afterall? Justin did not see them in Santiago but that could mean anything, like they were ahead? I dunno?

Someone (was it Jason?) mentioned an African American crew member. It is possible that the observer simply saw this person doing something during setup/practice run thru of the task, perhaps with another dark haired crew member standing nearby/helping, and assumed they were a Team. Might be grasping at straws here. Otherwise they had to have been eliminated while in Siem Reap, and in Santiago they would have been either mistaken for crew, or one of the teams in the second group that Justin didn't see

The converse could also be true - we could have another Croatia situation where a team is hours behind the frontrunners (or a team who misses a connection and gets the pity clue like Uchenna/Joyce).

Hey so we only have 9 teams but so --we lose the pinkys & Hippies and 2 other teams somewhere between South America & God only knows where and then the African American teams in Siem Reap?

So something isn't right? We have pictures of 6 teams in and 5 leaving Cambodia sans the African American team ???

I don't agree that the petite redhead is one of the F/F team ..she goes somewhere else but with who? Makes me think there was no African American team afterall? Justin did not see them in Santiago but that could mean anything, like they were ahead? I dunno?

I doubt it Puddin.  If Bilal & Sa'eed were African American (which I honestly don't know) then every season has had at least one african american team.  If they aren't  that season was racial diverse with an Indian team, an asian team and the ethnic background of Bilal & Sa'eed.

Season 1:  Two African American teams
Season 2:  1 African American Team and a Hispanic Team
Season 3:  1 African American Team
Season 4:  1 African American team
Season 5:  1 African American Team
Season 6:  1 African American Team
Season 7:  1 African American TEam
Season 8:  1 African American Team
Season 9:  1 African American Team, one Hispanic Team
Season 10:  1 Asian Team, 1 Indian Team, and one Maybe
Season 11:  1 African American Team, 1 Hispanic team
Season 12:  1 African American Team, 1 Hispanic Team, 1 Asian Team.

While we are missing a couple of teams in either photos or eye witness accounts.  We don't have anything pointing to ethnicity.  So I would hazard a guess just on past ethnic backgrounds that we have at least 1 African American Team.

I was thinking about the headbands, and it makes sense there has to be more teams unaccounted for. We are missing the red, green, and orange pairs I think. ROYGBIV are usually the top choices when it comes to putting colors to teams, and I would assume white would be used as an extra. That would leave 7 teams in that airport.

It can be argued that were missing the "pink" and black as well.

6 teams entered Cambodia, Siam Reap, 5 left.
Mom/Son "white"
Frats "yellow"
F/F from Texas "blue"

one more thing ... remember All Stars route? It was discussed that the first 4 teams were eliminated in South America making sequester in , was it Mexico?, easier for TPTB, travel wise, not counting Teri & Ian of course but who later showed up as the last team to be sequestered. Anyway the point being that TAR13 could be done the same way, have the first 4-5 teams eliminated in South America for sequester reasons, just thinking out loud   blahblah

John Vito & Jill Ecuador
Kevin & Drew   Chile
Mary & David Chile
Rob & Amber Argentina
Teri & Ian Mozambique

They lowered their racial quota after season 3 to only 1 black team per season. But it was two black teams in the first 3 seasons.

You might count TAR10 as a double season as well. Sa'eed (Rudolph) and his partner Bilal are African-American Moslems: one born and raised, one convert.
Quote
TVGuide.com: Were you all raised Muslim or did you convert as adults?
Sa'eed: I was Christian before and converted to Islam in the year 2000.
Bilal: I was born and raised Muslim in Cleveland. Most of my family are Baptist and Christian. It's kinda ironic now because with maybe 12 cousins and 11 aunts, four of my aunts and four cousins are now Muslim. But back in the day, growing up, we were like the black sheep of the family.

Thats it I am never going by memory again.

And its funny the two African American teams I remembered were the ones to get the boot early.  Deidre and Hillary not the twins.  And Tramel and Talicia (team TNT) and not Cop/ Fireman duo.

Well I assumed that they were African Americans from being from Cleveland.   But I don't find anything in the article that states ethnicity.  They mention being the "black sheep" of their family.  I think this refers to their religion.

And I don't doubt that they are African Americans, I just haven't found proof.

It was an African American couple. I just uploaded the only pick I have to my blog entry "cambodia's culinary delights." It's the last picture in the series.

I saw them after arriving near seim reap by boat from battambang, traveling through lake tonle sap. It was about 2:30 or 3 in the afternoon on a Sunday. They were at the water's edge. We were kept away but I saw the guy stacking some baskets I've seen them use to transport pigs and she was holding their bags. They then jumped in awaiting trucks and were transported with the cameraman and got out near a wat outside of town. I kept onto town so I don't know what happened next.

Hope that helps!

Is it possible to get a time for this photo? We believe that they jumped in these trucks and probably drove up to the Wat, and we think that the girl with reddish hair was at the Wat at around midday, so if this picture was significantly before or after midday it could give us an indication whether the AA team could be way ahead/way behind, hence on another flight/eliminated.

If all the tasks in Cambodia were done on Sunday 4 May, what then did they do on Monday - extended Pit Stop? They leave Siem Reap on the first flight Tuesday morning, meaning Pit Stop releases were on Monday night...

Here's my breakdown of the contestants:
*2 girls, both from Texas, one blond, one brunette.
*A young guy with spikey hair (college age, red shirt, orange pack,
white headband in the escalator pic) and his mother.
*A young couple (pic of them from behind on my blog), probably mid-20s.
*Another guy and girl but not a couple, early 20s.
2 frat boys.  One was wearing an AEPi shirt from Arizona State dated
2006 and the other was the jew-fro kid with the yellow headband.  He's
definitely a racer
*No African American team

Hey everyone.  Glad I could help with the Bangkok pics and info.  As Peach posted, I can definitely identify 5 teams and think there was another but can't be sure.  I know that sucks because you guys wanna know if people got kicked off recently.  Sorry about that.  Actually, I was chatting with a crew member in the customs line when they told me it was a documentary and I asked how many people there are in the "movie" and just threw 10 out there as a number and he said yeah so maybe there are only 5 teams left. 
I can definitely say that the (1) frat guys are the guys in my second set of pics, one with a yellow headband, one with a yellow hat.  They were doing pullups on the bus ride from the plane. (2) The 2 girls, one blond/reddish hair, one brunette, both from Texas. (3)  The couple with their backs to me in the other shot is a team, they had a number on the packs.  Don't remember what it was. (4) Then there's the young guy with the spikey hair and his mother and (5) another M/F who are together but almost positive they're not a couple.  That's all I saw in terms of contestants.I can definitely say there was no african american team.  There was one african american guy but he was a sound guy.  That's it. 

And the girls definitely passed through customs when the rest went another way.  And in the picture with them, the black line to the left is the back of a thai lady's head.  Airport security or information person trying to help them.  I left them when they were still by the baggage claim trying to figure out what to do.

What else?  ummmmm, I didn't see any older couple with the group.  We were pretty much waiting in the small Siem Reap airport together for over an hour so I got a pretty good look at everyone that was there. 

Again, glad to help as much as I can.  I'm offline for a bit so may not respond quickly if anyone has any questions.  I guess I'll have to start watching TAR now  ;)

Good question Neobie--he definitely said that. That post is a direct quote from his first response to my questions. He wrote it--not me!

and yes, according to him re the timing:

this all happened yesterday morning (Tuesday morning, Thailand time) so I would think they either just got to India or are on their way.  Actually, now that I think about it, one of them mentioned that they had a 4 hour layover in Bangkok before leaving so they should be in Delhi.

As Peach posted, I can definitely identify 5 teams and think there was another but can't be sure.   I know that sucks because you guys wanna know if people got kicked off recently.  Sorry about that.  Actually, I was chatting with a crew member in the customs line when they told me it was a documentary and I asked how many people there are in the "movie" and just threw 10 out there as a number and he said yeah so maybe there are only 5 teams left.

We also have 2 eyewitness's that saw 6 boats

Yes ! they are definitely contestants from the Amazing Race Show. We were at Tonle Sap Lake and saw route markers (Flags in red and yellow) on 6 boats at the pier. There were camera crew but we did not see the contestants. Very exciting !

 Amazing Race Show ' route markers on 6 boats . Only 6 teams left competing in Siem Reap ! (http://www.flickr.com/photos/jameskhoo/2472602864/)

So 6 boats suggesting 6 teams in Siem Reap.

And either 5 or 6 teams in the airport departing.

So maybe yes/maybe no re a NEL! :lol:

But Jason did not see the African American team, I mean come on you read what he wrote, the only AA that he saw was crew, the guy on the escalator, and we have proof that there was indeed a AA couple in Siem Reap so explain that   :lol: .

We can't say for sure that they were not either way ahead  or way behind the other teams, and therefore perhaps not seen by Jason?

He is only describing what he saw which may not be 100% of the teams, right?

I personally do think you are right about there being 5 teams left, but we can't assume this I don't think... unless I have missed something else?

If they were still doing the basket task mid afternoon, and the other girl was at the Wat around midday, then from what we believe of the task order, it could be assumed that they were not way ahead, so must have been either behind or eliminated...right? :duno:

Amazing race 3
Last post about the Amazing Race but the story's pretty interetsing. So got an email today from an old friend from law school that I had lost touch with and randomly thought about what she was up to recently and ridiculously enough, one of the contestants in the pics that I posted is related to her. I won't say which one lest she violate her 160 page confidentiality agreement but how ridiculous is that. Since my blog got picked up by these Amazing Race sites, she came across it looking for an update and saw the pic and saw my big head at the top of the screen. I can't get over the coincidence of me being on an airport bus in Cambodia with this girl's relative that she's been looking for an update on. Anyway, I've provided her and her family a great comfort by reporting that the "racer" is alive and well and I've been able to get back in touch with her. What a small world.

Now I have to "unstick"  blue shirt from purple bandanna M/F team  :lol:, thanks for the update peach  :tup:

 

And some new info:

The photographer of this fellow
(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR13/CIMG2363.jpg)

has sent the following info:

Quote
As far as your questions, the guy was by himself, though there was also a blond girl w a green shirt (not the one you see in the picture, she is from my group) and a white baseball hat also looking for whatever. I have no idea what exactly they were looking for, and the day I saw them was Sunday May 4, I think late AM my time. We are, I believe, 11 hours ahead of EST.

There is one team no one has considered in all of this. Our unkown Male/Unkown team. As puddin stated, it could be no one, but I think this may be saying otherwise. The dude is wearing a green jacket and white baseball cap. Say he's with this girl spotted by the photographer, and we might have our other male/female dating couple.

Hey Guys! So, I had the chance to go to Willow Creek Community church in Chicago a week ago for a Children’s Conference! It was quite the experience! I am still trying to download all of the amazing insights that we can use to improve our effectiveness to reaching Kids for Christ.

First off, when we landed in Chicago, we were walking through the airport and all the sudden, we ran into THE AMAZING RACE! All the teams were racing to get to San Pablo, Brazil, and we just happened to be standing by their gate! It was unforgettable.

Post by: north09 on May 10, 2008, 09:27:30 PM
With 2 all female teams already, I would be shocked with a 3rd. Those 2 girls packed to light to be racers, unless they never planned on being in it long in the first place. And speaking of the all female teams, the blondes are not their in the photo. Maybe they start out at the back of the pack.

As for those 3 guys, I'm thinking the 2 together on the left might be the frat boys. I know neither of them have a jew-fro, but they fit the age discription.

I don't think that blond is WITH the blue shirt dude...I was thinking they were each part of a separate team?

Here: maybe we can use these numbers to talk about who we mean?

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR13numberedchicgoteams.jpg)

10/11 are son (orange shirt) and Mom

12/13 are the "Hippies"

2 could be our male African/American from the truck??

15 as above--girl w/ blue shirt guy from Cambodia

16/17 F/F team with 16 possible reported blonde in Cambodia in green shirt

24/25 green pack cameraguys?? or not?

i  don't think 15, 16 or 17 are part of a team

15 & 16 are wearing Jeans which has to be the most impractical piece of clothing to wear on a race

16 has a coat and a white purse in her hands - why would anyone bring that on a race

17 has a black purse slung over her shoulder


15 also looks like she is wearing pumps

so IMO i think that are just passengers on this flight.

Post by: KingCrimson88 on May 11, 2008, 08:34:10 AM
15 is definitely a racer. You can see a blue route info clue in her hand. And I'm guessing 16 is her partner. 17 is obviously NOT a racer. She has a freaking purse with her. Come on.

Good eye Patlini!

I'll give you 16 and 17 as non racers.

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR13teamsdoubt-1.jpg)

15 has the clue. KingCrimson, we think she may have blue shirt guy for a partner--look upstream.

And is this a clue in #9's pocket--or just a nice view?  :-[

And to settle a previous discussion--"Mom" is definitely carrying the pouch!

There is another guy beside him also looking down. I'm not sure if he has a blue backpack, or whether there is some camera equipment with him. That might help decide whether they could be crew or a team, cos they definitely both seem to be looking down at something, suggesting they are together :duno:

Just organizing the team info witnessed in Portland here:




Well, I went down there again to check out the scene.  Parked my car & lo and behold, what do I see but two people driving away in one of the minivans from the closed off lot.  Jumped back in the car to follow it - they drove down to 2nd av. and are parked in front of voodoo donut.  I bet they have or will have a shoot there - it's a weird Portland thing.  Two people waiting in the car.  Wish they would leave so I could follow them some more..

Well, sorry peeps, I had to come back to work.. After about half an hour of waiting, I walked by the van and it is a couple PAs waiting for something.  Literally doing a crossword.  I did see a conversation they had with what looked like the manager of Voodoo Donut.  I went in there to get me a donut and asked the clerk when the Amazing Race was going to be there.  He gave me a blank stare - so maybe the staff doesn't know about it, or has been instructed to not answer.  Maybe they are just getting donuts for the crew.. who knows.  Now I'm back to paying

There was a clue box right in front of VooDoo donuts, I was there today. When nobody was close to coming, the producers would cover the box with a trash bag but when people were nearby, they would uncover the box and shoo anyone away that was standing near it. It was probably one of the last clues if the Pittock Mansion was the last stop.

 

They are in Portland today. I was on 5th and Salmon outside my office and two different sets of couples ran by (guy/girl and girl/girl) with a camerman and soundman each.   It looked too like Amazing Race not to be.



I just ran down the street in Portland following two girls and the camera crew.
The went to voodoo doughnuts (for a clue I think)   Police talked to producers because fans were running after the racers.
They thought someone was running out on a meal bill...  the team got into the van and drove off.

I know, girl/girl was stupid.....I was a little excited about the siting.  I saw them about 1:55pm running North.  But, I did notice they looked awfully rested, not frazzled at all....maybe decoys.
sammyk

I was waiting to pick my boyfriend up at International arrivals around Noon today.  saw a young couple, very fit and attractive and then 2 sisters (they looked related) also young and wearing matching nike workout gear- they definitely stood out, then when a camera crew w/ tons of gear started filming them running thru the terminal, well that's when it clicked! the A.R!! i love the show and had NO idea they might be in PDX. so, my boyfriend saw them in customs and he thought they had come from Moscow before PDX.
Cool! can't wait to see it on TV.

i don't recognize the teams i saw from any of those pics- the couple (i am assuming that by the way- could be bro/ sis) she had dark hair, he had dark blond hair.  very fit and looked like the had just climbed a mtn. 

Thanks stacy !! Were the 2 girls blond by any chance? we are missing some of the teams pictures but word is there were 2 blonds in pink.
Yes- sisters were blond!


more from the wweek.com site in comments  (http://wweek.com/wwire/?p=11881). I suppose 13 - 1111 means 11 episodes *sigh*

Underwear Guy  writes on May 14th, 2008 4:48pm
**SPOILER**

I followed the girls, and the camera... I would bet money this was a decoy, Sammyk you nailed it. The girls got into a WRP van near the Voodoo Doughnuts, the were asking people along the way where Voodoo was... YET NO CLUE was to be found there. They all got into a van and drove off.

 

I have never posted before but have loved TAR since season 1.

Just talked with a co-worker whose husband was hiking in the Columbia Gorge at about 2:30 pm and saw racing teams, vehicles and a helicopter in the vicinity of Bridge of the Gods. He wasn't sure what it was until she called him about the Portland rumor. Could it be the race?

I work in Cascade Locks, and there is a zip line in place right now from the Bridge of the Gods to Thunder Island.  I don't know when they put it up, but it sure wasn't there yesterday!   :yess:  I got there in time to see the camera crews packing up and loading equipment into vans, but a fellow teacher saw two couples ride the zip line down to the island.  This was between 2:30-3:30 this afternoon.  There were helicopters circling the site, three camera crews at and around the bridge, and they apparently paid the owners of the Charburger restaurant to close for the day so they could secure the parking lot which overlooks the river and the zip line.  There were six yellow cabs at the parking lot where the access to the island is, along with more camera crews, and the officer that I talked to said they always stage it so that people don't know for sure how many couples are left.  Does that sound reasonable?
The other teacher talked to one of the cab drivers, who said he picked up two people at the airport from an overseas flight, took them to Newberg where they "ran around and looked for a clue", then drove them to Cascade Locks.  For some reason someone asked him if this was Fear Factor, but he said it was more like a scavenger hunt.  Apparently he has not actually seen Amazing Race himself, so didn't know anything about the usual process.



I saw TAR teams today as well at PDX.  I drive the international buses at PDX but not today.  However, I was driving the terminal parking lot  buses today and saw a camera man /sound man  running after a very tan blond woman in a florescent green sporty outfit, backpack  and one of those TAR  clue cards (?)  in her hand just about the time  the Germany  flight  would have landed. They were getting a taxi here at PDX.  I had to keep  my  eyes on my driving  but a person in the bus said they were from The Amazing Race.

My  next  loop  around (20 minutes later), I arrived  at the terminal  and  saw  more teams grabbing a taxi.  Fortunately  I was driving the Employee lot bus  and one of the supervisors  (who  got  on  camera & had to sign a TAR release  for TV)   confirmed that the teams  in fact were from TAR and got off the Lufthansa  flight from Germany to Portland OR.    They were headed  up to Washington state. He also said there were only  4 teams and perhaps  the other two teams  went up via  Seattle first -  but that of course is purely  speculation.

Okay guys, I AM able to share some more info w/ you!

With many thanks to our incredible  Portland photographer who has been hard at work on our behalf!!

Quote
I'm pleased to report that I saw a male-male team in downtown Portland 
this evening
(peach: that would be 5/14) at about 6:00 local time. A cameraman and a sound man 
were following them.

I saw them head west along Alder, then south on 10th, then east on 
Morrison. They asked for directions at the food carts that occupy the 
parking lot north of Alder, and they looked at a metal map kiosk at 
the corner of 10th and Morrison.

They looked to be mid to late 20s or even maybe early 30s. Both were 
wearing khaki trousers; the taller one was slightly heavyset and had 
reddish curly hair and was wearing a baseball cap and a blue T-shirt. 
The other had blonde to sandy blonde hair and no hat. Both had 
backpacks.

What struck me, though, was how slowly they were moving compared to my 
expections. They certainly were not running. I don't know if this 
means they are a decoy, or that they are real but exhausted, or that 
they are real and in last place, or what.

I often buy magazines at a store on 9th & Alder, so I asked the 
cashier there if I knew anything about TAR in Portland. He said, "Oh, 
is that what that was?" I said, "Is that what WHAT was?" He said he 
had seen a male  and a female plus two-man crew
also proceeding along 
Alder. I asked him when that was. He said about two hours previously, 
which puts it at around 4:00 p.m. I asked him if he recalled any other 
details; he said he did not, except that the girl was pretty. :-/

I did not have a camera with me, but where they were is VERY central 
location; and while Portland is considerably less densely occupied 
than, say, LA or even Denver, I will be very surprised if no one here 
managed to take a reasonable picture of at least one of the teams.

I asked our source if these guys could maybe be who he saw?

And so sadly, since we don't even know their names yet (that seems so wrong somehow!), he replied:

Quote
Oooh! Yes, I do think so! Their relative heights and hair colors match!

Sad because this screams decoy to me...and interestingly, I believe it may be decoy being run AFTER the actual finale MAT arrival...

More later on...

(Its for us to decide which were decoys and which were the real thing. My take, based on witnesses sightings, is that the downtown Portland sightings were decoys but, can't be determined either way.)


* I was on 5th and Salmon outside my office and two different sets of couples ran by (guy/girl and girl/girl) with a camerman and soundman each. I saw them about 1:55pm running North

*I just ran down the street in Portland following two girls and the camera crew.
The went to voodoo doughnuts (for a clue I think)
** Two girls and a camera crew ran through downtown this afternoon at 2:30

*I saw a rather attractive couple/team running west on SW Alder @ 5th at approx 4pm. The sound guy didn’t look very happy. As in he was really out of shape and was having a hard time keeping up.

*I saw one of the teams running down 10th towards the Pearl as I was exiting the Pittock Building at about 4 p.m on Wednesday. This was before I knew they were in town. Youngish male and female with back packs, fanny packs w/AR logo

*I'm pleased to report that I saw a male-male team in downtown Portland

**** I asked him if he recalled any other details; he said he did not, except that the girl was pretty


*PDX: saw a young couple, very fit and attractive and then 2 sisters (they looked related) also young and wearing matching nike workout gear- they definitely stood out
(reply when asked to look at the contestant pictures)
**i don't recognize the teams i saw from any of those pics- the couple (i am assuming that by the way- could be bro/ sis) she had dark hair, he had dark blond hair.  very fit and looked like the had just climbed a mtn

***Yes- sisters were blond!


*I saw TAR teams today as well at PDX.
** a very tan blond woman in a florescent green sporty outfit, backpack and one of those TAR clue cards (?) in her hand
***I arrived  at the terminal and saw more teams grabbing a taxi.
****He also said there were only 4 teams and perhaps  the other two teams went up via Seattle first -  but that of course is purely speculation

Added, thanks peach. Gosh what I wouldn't do for some pictures!

Maybe we can get the sighting times together to figure when the contestants actually gathered for the actual pit stop :)
Maybe between 3:00, 4:00 pm?  :lol:

At PDX
around 12 noon

in downtown Portland:
2:30pm to 3:00pm
around 4:00pm
around 6:00pm

I saw them filming a 'reinactment' of the players pulling an envelope from the stand indicating their next challenge.

Was yesterday across from Portlandia





Two girls and a camera crew ran through downtown this afternoon at 2:30. It's the TAR crew that's for sure... it was crazy! The girls asked for directions as they ran past the mens underwear store UnderU4Men (the guy that broke the story)... I thought the clue might be there. Turns out they were asking the directions to Voodoo Doughnuts. When we got there (running behind them), they ducked around the corner and into a crew van. No way could to travelers run that fast after an International flight. I also listened as the lead person from the crew talked to a PDX Police officer, seems the fans running after girls and camera crew were mistaken for a dine and dash. lol This had to be a decoy!

I saw one of the teams running down 10th towards the Pearl as I was exiting the Pittock Building at about 4 p.m on Wednesday. This was before I knew they were in town. Youngish male and female with back packs, fanny packs w/AR logo, and a camera crew. Took me by surprise.

Sorry, I don't want to see Michael freakout again when a female team loses.  So I have to say Mom/Son, two couples.  Since the all male team isn't there.  Which is probably a good thing, maybe we will get another male/male team in season 14 (young/fit).  Without to many people freaking out.

i wont freak out and a f/f team will win tar13. I will eventually grow old with one of them and take their money.

I just don't think the blue shirted fellow is the same person as the now identified Terrance on the bus. The build is wrong and this fellow's hair looks darker to me.

In the bus photo I see Sarah has a purple scarf attached to her backpack, he has something purple looking around his right wrist, and the YouTube poster says they are the purple team.

Blue shirted fellow's right hand can't be seen but he has a blue wrist band on his left hand.
Title: Re: Amazing Race Contestants (summary page 1)
Post by: north09 on May 20, 2008, 01:35:24 PM
I think it is the same guy. The blue shirt, the sunglasses, the hair style all match. The hair probably appears darker because of the angle of the shot. As for the purple bandannas (or at least thats what I'm assuming they are), they seem to only have been used for one leg. This photo was taken before that leg.

Maybe emnutkin can tell us? That is, of course, if Terrance doesn't mind...

eta:
Now I have to "unstick"  blue shirt from purple bandanna M/F team  :lol:, thanks for the update peach  :tup:

 

And some new info:

The photographer of this fellow
(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR13/CIMG2363.jpg)

has sent the following info:

Quote
As far as your questions, the guy was by himself, though there was also a blond girl w a green shirt (not the one you see in the picture, she is from my group) and a white baseball hat also looking for whatever. I have no idea what exactly they were looking for, and the day I saw them was Sunday May 4, I think late AM my time. We are, I believe, 11 hours ahead of EST.

But if it was a roadblock then the blonde could be a member from another team.  :duno: I'm not sure either way. There are similarities between the two men, but with only those 2 pics, it's hard to be absolutely certain either way

I think that is the best evidence yet (that was a GREAT pickup!!  :jumpy: )that those are not the same racers. That's a left hand hoding the rail, has the same blue band that blue shirt dude has. So seems very likely that they are 2 separate people.

OTOH, I don't interpret that post to mean that he was WITH the blonde in the green shirt, just that she was there at the same time. Agree that that could be another team member doing a roadblock.

A day in Phnom Penh (Cambodia)
Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia and it’s a 6-hour bus ride from Siem Reap. We were hoping to take the Mekong Express bus or plane going there but both were fully booked so we ended up taking a regular airconditioned bus which turned out to be a blessing in disguise because we chanced upon the shoot of Amazing Race right across where our bus was parked!:) Photo-taking isn't actually allowed but we were able to snap some shots from the bus.:)

Remember our cute blogger who spent the day following a team at Ankgor Wat??

I was able to reach her and she has sent PRESENTS! :hearts:

Quote
We were at Angkor Wat on the 4th May when they were filming the Amazing Race. We only saw one team at Angkor for the whole time we were there which was a couple of hours. This team was both male, one with orange hair and the other with brown hair and they were at the clue box at 11.30am. We also happened to see all the teams walking around Siem Reap town that evening and I recall seeing 6 teams. I would love to visit your website and I have plenty of photos I will send to your email address
....

And she sent these for now and hopefully will come answer questions herself soon!  :jumpy:

Both threads now seem to be used for contestants, so I'll just put this here for now, since it's been getting the attention today. Move it if you want though.

My brother is a member of Delta Chi, and on his Facebook, has an application called "The Greek Community". The basis of it is that each Frat has their own facebook page, and it is seperated by chapter and school. Well I went on the Alpha Epsilon Pi opne for ASU, and it has 51 members. It's not guarantied that one of our boys is in here. Going through their friends, this guy caught my eye.

I wanted to touch on this, in spoilers  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,15356.msg302087.html#msg302087) were thinking these aren't contestants at all, rather post production staff.


adding this! more contestants maybe male/ female team? Males feet/sneakers running? Female reading the clue?
Older man whatever?

A day in Phnom Penh (Cambodia)
Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia and it’s a 6-hour bus ride from Siem Reap. We were hoping to take the Mekong Express bus or plane going there but both were fully booked so we ended up taking a regular airconditioned bus which turned out to be a blessing in disguise because we chanced upon the shoot of Amazing Race right across where our bus was parked!:) Photo-taking isn't actually allowed but we were able to snap some shots from the bus.:)

I'm with you Chateau hes to old  :lol:

Okay so, I wanted to touch on this as well, photo evidence page 1 of this thread. What I'm trying to figure out is are there 5 or 6 teams left leaving Cambodia?

Tonle Sap Lake

Message from Chrisrae:
*It was an African American couple. I just uploaded the only pick I have to my blog entry "cambodia's culinary delights." It's the last picture in the series. (1) photo evidence



Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand

* Hey everyone.  Glad I could help with the Bangkok pics and info. 
*As Peach posted, I can definitely identify 5 teams and (7)think there was another but can't be sure.   . 
*Sorry about that.  Actually, I was chatting with a crew member in the customs line when they told me it was a documentary and I asked how many people there are in the "movie" and just threw 10 out there as a number and he said yeah so maybe there are only 5 teams left. 
*I can definitely say that the frat guys are the guys in my second set of pics, one with a yellow headband, one with a yellow hat.  They were doing pullups on the bus ride from the plane.  (2) photo evidence
*The 2 girls, one blond/reddish hair, one brunette, both from Texas.  (3) photo evidence
*The couple with their backs to me in the other shot is a team, they had a number on the packs. (4) Sarah & Terrance photo evidence
 *Then there's the young guy with the spikey hair and his mother and (5) photo evidence
*another M/F who are together but almost positive they're not a couple.   (6)NO photo evidence
*That's all I saw in terms of contestants.
*I can definitely say there was no african american team.  There was one african american guy but he was a sound guy.  That's it. 
*What else?  ummmmm, I didn't see any older couple with the group. 
*We were pretty much waiting in the small Siem Reap airport together for over an hour so I got a pretty good look at everyone that was there. 



1) African American pair ~Tonle Sap Lake
2) Frat guys~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand
3) 2 girls from Texas~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand
4) Sarah & Terrance~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand
5) Mom son ~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand
6) another M/F who are together but almost positive they're not a couple~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand  could be the guy in blue below, may or may not be paired with the blond in the cap with the green shirt?
7)  I can definitely identify 5 teams and think there was another but can't be sure


 
   thanks for the update peach  :tup:

And some new info:

The photographer of this fellow
(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR13/CIMG2363.jpg)

has sent the following info:

Quote
As far as your questions, the guy was by himself, though there was also a blond girl w a green shirt (not the one you see in the picture, she is from my group) and a white baseball hat also looking for whatever. I have no idea what exactly they were looking for, and the day I saw them was Sunday May 4, I think late AM my time. We are, I believe, 11 hours ahead of EST.


 


So now we have the 7 boats at Tonle Sap Lake:

The blogger said 6, but I count 7 flags there (the flags on each end are almost hidden--compare my arrows below to the original (http://www.flickr.com/photos/jameskhoo/2472602864/sizes/o/)). Doesn't production often hire one extra vehicle/animal/etc. for tasks?

Can you tell me something about the Amazing Race filming you have witnessed in Cambodia?

The bus we boarded
was abt to leave already when we got there. At first,
we didn't even realize it was for Amazing Race until
we saw them drawing out the Amazing Race Card from the
striped box. The shoot happened at a bus station in
Siem Reap. There was a row of trucks (like the blue
truck in the photo) so most likely the next challenge
was related to that. When our bus left, they were
shooting each vehicle and driver. So we didn't witness
much action:(

Do you remember the date you saw them? What time was it in the day?

It was May 4. Our bus departure was 730am.

Do you have a clear memory on how many blue coloured trucks were there?

5 trucks - pls refer to
one of the attached photos. Also each one had a driver
(w/ helmets on so their gender are barely
recognizable).


Is there a name for the bus stop or station where you saw them?

Chong Kov Sou Bus Station (Near Phsar
Leu)

Sweet Realiable Source

Well, we are only seeing production here and at 0730 are not yet expecting our contestants to be there yet, per airline arrivals.

So who was "pulling" clues? A production run through?

But very nice photos--thanks to JonLover and their source! :gj:

But speaking of the intro, Nate & Jen were discovered last year because of their intro shot at Huntington Beach and MySpace connection with The Goths (I miss them!). Maybe we can find a team like that again.

No the driver wearing the helmet might be a good intro shot.
..also Nate & Jen were discovered before the intro shots or the show began airing at Huntington Beach, October to be exact~

gmta peach (what have I done to my contestant thread!?  :lol: )

I can't for the life of me, find that Bus Station   :spy:
BATTAMBANG
Siem Reap: National Route #6 ( or Airport road)is paved all the way, and the journey is faster than it used to be (5-6 hours). In Siem Reap the Chong Kov Sou bus station is located near Phsar Leu (the 'Upper Market') about 2km west of the centre; in Phnom Penh, buses from different companies depart from different stations.

In Siem Reap, most buses arrive and depart from the Chong Kov Sou bus station near Phsar Leu 2km from town center.)

Post by: georgiapeach on May 31, 2008, 04:04:58 PM
Try this:

The bus station in Siem Reap is a chaotic place mainly catering to local traffic. It is located o¬n a dirt road off National Rd. No.6 about 4km east of the town centre. There is a Sokimex Gas Station at the road junction with Highway No.6. O¬nly buses to/from Phnom Penh and Battambang (via Sisophon) use the station.

Tickets can be purchased at the bus station (the ticket booths are a little way past the “station”), but if you buy them there, you will have to make your own way to the station. If you buy your ticket in town, the bus company provides a shuttle bus to take you to the station. The price for a tuk-tuk into town should be about $2-3. A motodup ride should cost $1. Be prepared to haggle.

I'm biased, but I'll say it looks like him. I'm glad that people were able to find more on him, since I hit a dead end in searching. I never really know you could search for people on myspace, unless you were checking for the guys profile!

So on to his "partner", I would say this Abromowitz guy is our best bet. They have to be close if they are roommates. The "Best Friends" usually have a deeper connection. I'll search for him, maybe in the AEPI site directory even. Who knows, I'll be back with something.

Yes, no offense to Andrew, but the guys not that great looking. When it comes to the "frat boys" they probably want one good looking guy to ballence it out.

Who are you guys talking about?  :lol:  The Rabbi? I already said he is not our contestant...but that he probably knows who is!!

And I think they did know Lappit, that's why they met up w/ him.  These guys ALL know each other! The message boards go right around in a circle from one to the other...

I've been meaning to add this from Lorna via peach, again it adds more evidence that there very well could be 6 teams Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand.

Also new info that was pointed out by Neobie  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,15356.msg302932.html#msg302932) --
SA 3 legs not 4 like we originally were thinking
So
11 teams to start LA to Brazil
 lose a team in  Bahia, Savador 10 left
 lose a team somewhere SA 9 left
 lose a team La Paz, Bolivia 8 left
 lose a team Auckland, NZ 7 left
 lose a team in Siem Reap Cambodia 6 left ( looking at the times of the tasks on Tonle Sap , unless theres a another team way behind, I'll still "guess" that the African American couple was eliminated in Siem Reap which makes sense as well as Jason did not see a AA couple enroute to Delhi.
 6 teams fly from Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand ..this is where we lose the sightings

 

Quote
We were at Angkor Wat on the 4th May when they were filming the Amazing Race. We only saw one team at Angkor for the whole time we were there which was a couple of hours. This team was both male, one with orange hair and the other with brown hair and they were at the clue box at 11.30am. (7) We also happened to see all the teams walking around Siem Reap town that evening and I recall seeing 6 teams . I would love to visit your website and I have plenty of photos I will send to your email address
....



I'm with you Chateau hes to old  :lol:

Okay so, I wanted to touch on this as well, photo evidence page 1 of this thread. What I'm trying to figure out is are there 5 or 6 teams left leaving Cambodia?

Tonle Sap Lake

Message from Chrisrae:
*It was an African American couple. I just uploaded the only pick I have to my blog entry "cambodia's culinary delights." It's the last picture in the series. (1) photo evidence



Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand

* Hey everyone.  Glad I could help with the Bangkok pics and info. 
*As Peach posted, I can definitely identify 5 teams and (7)think there was another but can't be sure.   . 
*Sorry about that.  Actually, I was chatting with a crew member in the customs line when they told me it was a documentary and I asked how many people there are in the "movie" and just threw 10 out there as a number and he said yeah so maybe there are only 5 teams left. 
*I can definitely say that the frat guys are the guys in my second set of pics, one with a yellow headband, one with a yellow hat.  They were doing pullups on the bus ride from the plane.  (2) photo evidence
*The 2 girls, one blond/reddish hair, one brunette, both from Texas.  (3) photo evidence
*The couple with their backs to me in the other shot is a team, they had a number on the packs. (4) Sarah & Terrance photo evidence
 *Then there's the young guy with the spikey hair and his mother and (5) photo evidence
*another M/F who are together but almost positive they're not a couple.   (6)NO photo evidence
*That's all I saw in terms of contestants.
*I can definitely say there was no african american team.  There was one african american guy but he was a sound guy.  That's it. 
*What else?  ummmmm, I didn't see any older couple with the group. 
*We were pretty much waiting in the small Siem Reap airport together for over an hour so I got a pretty good look at everyone that was there. 



1) African American pair ~Tonle Sap Lake
2) Frat guys~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand
3) 2 girls from Texas~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand
4) Sarah & Terrance~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand
5) Mom son ~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand
6) another M/F who are together but almost positive they're not a couple~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand  could be the guy in blue below, may or may not be paired with the blond in the cap with the green shirt?
7)  I can definitely identify 5 teams and think there was another but can't be sure.
We also happened to see all the teams walking around Siem Reap town that evening and I recall seeing 6 teams

 
   thanks for the update peach  :tup:

And some new info:

The photographer of this fellow
(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR13/CIMG2363.jpg)

has sent the following info:

Quote
As far as your questions, the guy was by himself, though there was also a blond girl w a green shirt (not the one you see in the picture, she is from my group) and a white baseball hat also looking for whatever. I have no idea what exactly they were looking for, and the day I saw them was Sunday May 4, I think late AM my time. We are, I believe, 11 hours ahead of EST.


 


So now we have the 7 boats at Tonle Sap Lake:

The blogger said 6, but I count 7 flags there (the flags on each end are almost hidden--compare my arrows below to the original (http://www.flickr.com/photos/jameskhoo/2472602864/sizes/o/)). Doesn't production often hire one extra vehicle/animal/etc. for tasks?

In the 4th picture, the two guys next to Andrew are clearly the same production guys with him at Angkor Wat. On the escalator picture taken way back when, there was a dude with a yellow cap just below Andrew. I would say that the guy labeled "yellow cap" is his unknown partner. Only problem is that he appears to be at the counter with a female racer in another photo.

As for Terrance & Sarah, him wearing a blue tank-top seems to prove that the dude in the blue shirt, spotted with a blonde female, is in fact another racer.

Those guys with the green backpacks, they appear to be the same guys I mentioned back when the airport photos came out.

The bag strap colour matches, as does the top colour on the guy, and although the girl is wearing glasses in the 2nd picture, the features are similar enough that it's definately possible to be a match to S&T imo

I dunno about this so just thinking outloud  :res:

Team Male/Female  last witnessed in Cambodia

*..and another team that was just a regular young couple in their 20's ~ LAX
*2 younger teams --couples he thinks ~ Santiago, Chile
*As far as your questions, the guy was by himself, though there was also a blond girl w a green shirt (not the one you see in the picture, she is from my group) and a white baseball hat also looking for whatever.~  Siem Reap
*Another guy and girl but not a couple, early 20s.~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand 
*the couple (i am assuming that by the way- could be bro/ sis) she had dark hair, he had dark blond hair.  very fit and looked like the had just climbed a mtn ~  Portland, PDX
*a very tan blond woman in a florescent green sporty outfit ~ Portland, PDX

We Have Five Teams visible there guys and also the  All girl team in the Cambodian airport must be 6, so where does this ginger girl come into it all???.

Visible
Mom/Son
Terrance/Sarah
Andrew/Frat#2
Yellow cap and girlfriend/sister...etc
That team over on the right... I am skeptical as to wether they are a team because looking in the photos they look to be crew, and then see the photo of Terrance and Sarah and the son look to the right of the son and you see a guy in front of the crew members he might also be a racer...

I think we are nearing 11 teams...

puddin can alisha give us a description of all the "REAL" Teams that would clear up the mess and then we could figure out the teams present!!

Post by: puddin on June 24, 2008, 12:13:27 AM
Alicia did not want to post on the forum, so sorry Kiwi. That is all the info she shared, along with the photo's of course.
I'm thinking the missing teams can only be the guy in the blue shirt below with probably a female partner. And maybe the dude in the yellow cap w/ the girl? Time will tell. I mean who would have known there were more photo's floating around right? I wasn't expecting them so maybe we'll get more.

1) African American pair ~Tonle Sap Lake my pick to be eliminated in Siem Reap
2) Frat guys~Delhi
3) 2 girls from Texas~Delhi reddish blond & brunette
4) Sarah & Terrance~Delhi
5) Mom & son ~Delhi
6) another M/F who are together but almost positive they're not a couple~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand could be the guy in blue below, may or may not be paired with the blond in the cap with the green shirt?
7)  I can definitely identify 5 teams and think there was another but can't be sure. mystery pair
*We also happened to see all the teams walking around Siem Reap town that evening and I recall seeing 6 teams

And the ginger haired girl? This one Kiwi?
(http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR13/th_IMGP2059.jpg)

Shes either apart of the female/female team or paired with a male. I thought we discussed that a few pages ago? Again theres no way to be sure, its based on a process of elimination :D.

Post by: north09 on June 24, 2008, 11:23:01 AM
You know, what are the chances the yellow cap guy is the same guy in all the pictures? The "guys" in all of them have short brown hair, a black t-shirt, and a yellow cap. Maybe it's him with the girl, and Andrew's partner only wore one in Thiland & Cambodia.

The guy with the yellow cap and the girl, both at the counter, are for sure a team. You can see a yellow tag hanghing off his bag.
Title: Re: Amazing Race Contestants (summary page 1)

Post by: north09 on June 25, 2008, 03:11:20 PM
With the "yellow cap guy" and his female partner, that brings us to 9 teams identified. That is, of course, assuming the girl with the red hair is the "strawberry blonde". So we have...

1.) Frat Boys
2.) Terrance & Sarah
3.) Mom & Son
4.) Girls From TX
5.) Black Couple
6.) Blondes In Pink
7.) Hippies
8.) Blue Shirt Guy & Blonde
9.) Yellow Cap Guy & Female

And perhaps, maybe another team?
(http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p204/Saracen7/team10.jpg)
Its hard to tell, but it seems that the woman might have one of those yellow number tags hanging from her bag, while the person in the red is wearing the pouch.

No he is crew, I know the man with the red from his hat thingy but I'll have to look. I think it was Croatia?

Also I can't figure out the 2 pairs of females either, both in pink, both being described as blondes sometimes as in the blondes from Texas in pink when we know the blond/reddish hair and brunette are from Texas and also wear pink at times as well as both being described as sisters :crazy
Title: Re: Amazing Race Contestants (summary page 1)
Post by: north09 on June 25, 2008, 04:47:20 PM
So maybe the woman is a racer, and has another partner?

As for the girls, maybe they are just one in the same. Blonde girls wearing pink from TX. Though one of the girls certainly isn't blonde.

Well we normally have 2 female teams so I dunno, I guess we wait :D
And the person in blue? is a woman? gosh its such a blurr to me.

puddin,
The new found race team in your picture.... are NOT asking directions.
They are standing on the mat checking in.  :wohoo:

Phil is mostly hidden, just some hair and shoulder showing in the enlarged shot.
Camera, sound, one lighting staffer and one I don't know what are shown in the

In the thread TAR in the Media, it says in a post "a pair of recent divorcees in 20s...


I posted that I think it could be a ginger haired girl is with the blue shirt!!

and puddin replied...

We think angry ginger haired girl is one of the female pair. The guy in the blue shirt is with a bleached blond.

I have been looking ever so closely at the photos of the girls from texas and the Angkor Wat photo of ginger haired girl and they simply cant...shouldnt be the same, someone needs to take a close look  :tup:
cuz I think she isnt personally the hair color of the "blonde" compared with the ginger and they arent the same at all the blonde is 2 light compared to the deep red of the other Cambodia girl...

By process of elimination Kiwi I grouped the ginger haired girl as one of the female pair, Jason described the 2 females the one had blond/reddish hair. Its all we have to go on, time will tell.  :duno:

6 teams leave Cambodia
the 2 females
the frat boys
Terrance and Sarah
Mon & Son
Male with blue shirt with a bleached blond
most recently, the new found male female team India and Moscow photo evidence

I might as well bring blue shirt and his blonde partner over to this page as well for refrence.

Kiwi, as you can see, the blonde with him is to blonde to be the ginger hired girl.

I am not sure about ginger-haired girl myself. Judging by the back views of the two girls we have, I can't convince myself she is one of them. So where does she fit in?  :duno:

Post by: north09 on August 02, 2008, 02:05:46 PM
We could always look at the bigger picture. We have, what, 9 teams? There is room for 2 more. We may never find out who she's racing with untill the cast reveal, but it's still worth it to look into her more.

ETA: I was looking back at the pictures and I found something that may help. Kiwi may be right, the ginger-haied girl could be with the a blue shirt guy.

On the subway with Terrance / Sarah, we already pointed out the yellow cap from the final 3 couple and the blue wristband on the other guy, but there may be something that was overlooked.
(http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p204/Saracen7/the_subway.jpg)
Purple: Terrance / Sarah
Blue: Blue Shirt Guy / Blonde
Yellow: Final 3 Couple seen in Moscow
Black: Blue Wristband

As you can see, the blue shirt guy and his blonde partner are on this train, yet he isn't wearing the same blue wristband as the blue shirt guy he is thought to be. That wristband is on a hand belonging to someone else, on the opposite side of the train!

*As far as your questions, the guy was by himself, though there was also a blond girl w a green shirt (not the one you see in the picture, she is from my group) and a white baseball hat also looking for whatever.~ Siem Reap
*a very tan blond woman in a florescent green sporty outfit ~ Portland, PDX

I guess theres always that slight chance that there are 2 legs in Cambodia and the ginger haired girl was eliminated in the second leg, just throwing that out there  :lol:

The Six teams leaving:

Mom and Son
Frats
Texas Girls - they womens hair isnt ginger enough!!
Terrance and Sarah
and the team from russia and india...

the sixth team can only hold 2 people - Blue shirt guy and partner

If the ginger haired girl isnt a f/f than she must go with bsg and I just dont think she is dark enough to be her!!
........

7th: African American Couple

and 4 others

I also know it was credited in another page but in norths picture on the train what about the floating fanny pack and the man with yellow cap, who has that fanny pack....

north, I like your thinking about the placement of the blue wristband...this could mean that we have the wrong people...

I can see

Terrance and Sarah
Yellow and Girl partner

and wristband too...

could the floating fanny pack be from another team?

See, I was thinking that its possibale that the guy who saw the teams missed one. Of course, there is a lot to take into account here, with only a limited number of descriptions. I did, however, find that comparing the photo of the girls from TX and the photo of the ginger-haired female, there is one major difference: the crew. The sound guy's backpack doesn't match in color. I'm really starting to contradict what I said before!

This was Jason's original message to us...

Quote
Here's my breakdown of the contestants:
2 girls, both from Texas, one blond, one brunette.
A young guy with spikey hair (college age, red shirt, orange pack,
white headband in the escalator pic) and his mother.
A young couple (pic of them from behind on my blog), probably mid-20s.
Another guy and girl but not a couple, early 20s.
2 frat boys.  One was wearing an AEPi shirt from Arizona State dated
2006 and the other was the jew-fro kid with the yellow headband.  He's
definitely a racer.
I can't remember the last contestants now but there was another pair.
Green backpack guys are camera/sound guys.  One sound guy who sat in
my row saw me taking pics and just smiled and nodded.   Was pretty
cool actually.
I didn't notice an older grey haired guy as a contestant.

Hope that helps!

Now that we have the new team photo M/F India/Moscow photo evidence we can probably exchange the teams marked #6 & #7 below whatever the case maybe....

I've been meaning to add this from Lorna via peach, again it adds more evidence that there very well could be 6 teams Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand.

Also new info that was pointed out by Neobie  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,15356.msg302932.html#msg302932) --
SA 3 legs not 4 like we originally were thinking
So
11 teams to start LA to Brazil
 lose a team in  Bahia, Savador 10 left
 lose a team somewhere SA 9 left
 lose a team La Paz, Bolivia 8 left
 lose a team Auckland, NZ 7 left
 lose a team in Siem Reap Cambodia 6 left ( looking at the times of the tasks on Tonle Sap , unless theres a another team way behind, I'll still "guess" that the African American couple was eliminated in Siem Reap which makes sense as well as Jason did not see a AA couple enroute to Delhi.
 6 teams fly from Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand ..this is where we lose the sightings

 

Quote
We were at Angkor Wat on the 4th May when they were filming the Amazing Race. We only saw one team at Angkor for the whole time we were there which was a couple of hours. This team was both male, one with orange hair and the other with brown hair and they were at the clue box at 11.30am. (7) We also happened to see all the teams walking around Siem Reap town that evening and I recall seeing 6 teams . I would love to visit your website and I have plenty of photos I will send to your email address
....



I'm with you Chateau hes to old  :lol:

Okay so, I wanted to touch on this as well, photo evidence page 1 of this thread. What I'm trying to figure out is are there 5 or 6 teams left leaving Cambodia?

Tonle Sap Lake

Message from Chrisrae:
*It was an African American couple. I just uploaded the only pick I have to my blog entry "cambodia's culinary delights." It's the last picture in the series. (1) photo evidence



Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand

* Hey everyone.  Glad I could help with the Bangkok pics and info. 
*As Peach posted, I can definitely identify 5 teams and (7)think there was another but can't be sure.   . 
*Sorry about that.  Actually, I was chatting with a crew member in the customs line when they told me it was a documentary and I asked how many people there are in the "movie" and just threw 10 out there as a number and he said yeah so maybe there are only 5 teams left. 
*I can definitely say that the frat guys are the guys in my second set of pics, one with a yellow headband, one with a yellow hat.  They were doing pullups on the bus ride from the plane.  (2) photo evidence
*The 2 girls, one blond/reddish hair, one brunette, both from Texas.  (3) photo evidence
*The couple with their backs to me in the other shot is a team, they had a number on the packs. (4) Sarah & Terrance photo evidence
 *Then there's the young guy with the spikey hair and his mother and (5) photo evidence
*another M/F who are together but almost positive they're not a couple.   (6)NO photo evidence
*That's all I saw in terms of contestants.
*I can definitely say there was no african american team.  There was one african american guy but he was a sound guy.  That's it. 
*What else?  ummmmm, I didn't see any older couple with the group. 
*We were pretty much waiting in the small Siem Reap airport together for over an hour so I got a pretty good look at everyone that was there. 



1) African American pair ~Tonle Sap Lake
2) Frat guys~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand
3) 2 girls from Texas~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand
4) Sarah & Terrance~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand
5) Mom son ~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand
6) another M/F who are together but almost positive they're not a couple~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand  could be the guy in blue below, may or may not be paired with the blond in the cap with the green shirt?  or most recent photo evidence of the M/F team India & Moscow
7)  I can definitely identify 5 teams and think there was another but can't be sure.
We also happened to see all the teams walking around Siem Reap town that evening and I recall seeing 6 teams (Lorna in Cambodia)
 could be the guy in blue below, may or may not be paired with the blond in the cap with the green shirt?  or most recent photo evidence of the M/F team India & Moscow

 
   thanks for the update peach  :tup:

And some new info:

The photographer of this fellow
(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR13/CIMG2363.jpg)

has sent the following info:

Quote
As far as your questions, the guy was by himself, though there was also a blond girl w a green shirt (not the one you see in the picture, she is from my group) and a white baseball hat also looking for whatever. I have no idea what exactly they were looking for, and the day I saw them was Sunday May 4, I think late AM my time. We are, I believe, 11 hours ahead of EST.


 

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR13/team-1.jpg)


So now we have the 7 boats at Tonle Sap Lake:

The blogger said 6, but I count 7 flags there (the flags on each end are almost hidden--compare my arrows below to the original (http://www.flickr.com/photos/jameskhoo/2472602864/sizes/o/)). Doesn't production often hire one extra vehicle/animal/etc. for tasks?

via, the hippies, you need to change them to 60s from 40s to 50s, due to Bertrams interview, sorry if that is rude I was just taking a look through everything

* The youngest team is a tandem of two guys in their early 20s. “They’re made for television,” Van Munster says. “They’re supersmart — and they make terrible mistakes.”

*A pair of recent divorcees in their late 20s also vie for the million-dollar prize. “They were left with some financial debt, so they really have a motive to run around the world,” he says.

*And once again, expect a serving of granola — this time with a husband-wife squad of 60-something Oregon hippies. “They’re the real thing,” says Van Munster. “They come right out of the '60s. To a lot of people, it looks almost like they’re from a different planet.”

Above I just wanted to ask if you could change the hippies ages on page 1 to 60something...and this post is as I was looking through the large episode 1 chicago internet photo of all the people, take a look at the african american man standing just left and further forward of the "SON" and I compared him to the other guy on the truck and judging on skin colour :groan:... I think we might have a slightly better chance with him and he also has a sound guy next to him!

I wish they would hurry and do it already! It would be fun to just see all of it come out and come together. Maybe around the time of the Survivor cast, to build intrest.

And just to add, I'm just gona assume the "world tour" band was just gven to the sound guy by the blue shirt guy or something.

Would CBS release that on The Early Show about 7-10 days before the premiere? I'm not sure, but haven't they done this in the past? Inquiring minds want to know.  :bubs

They haven't released on the Early show since season 9 I think ???

I think they skipped season 12 on the Early Show because it was too late to schedule it because it was rushed in to replace whatchamacallit etc

They have done that I think in the past ...but the cast on average and other things etc... I would say will be out between August 15th to August 25th maybe a bit later...we will see, first promos should be out in early Sept.

With the premiere date set for September, I'm sure promotion would begin during Week 1 of the NFL. CBS likes to promote its Sunday night lineup rather heavily during football.

I dont think the male at least is a match and remember the blond in India photo below might not even be a contestant ..

Team Male/Female  last witnessed in Cambodia

*..and another team that was just a regular young couple in their 20's ~ LAX
*2 younger teams --couples he thinks ~ Santiago, Chile
*As far as your questions, the guy was by himself, though there was also a blond girl w a green shirt (not the one you see in the picture, she is from my group) and a white baseball hat also looking for whatever.~  Siem Reap
*Another guy and girl but not a couple, early 20s.~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand 
*the couple (i am assuming that by the way- could be bro/ sis) she had dark hair, he had dark blond hair.  very fit and looked like the had just climbed a mtn ~  Portland, PDX
*a very tan blond woman in a florescent green sporty outfit ~ Portland, PDX

and we have this to sort out ..I "think" they are the same ..
remember the girls in "pink" were identified wearing pink sweatsuits in LAX, so do we have 2 sets of females from Texas with the pinks being the blondes? hopefully we get more promos.


Team tag #9 Female Blondie/Female Brunette from Texas, Blue bandanna last witnessed heading to India
*She also mentioned the two girls~ LAX
*These two girls from Texas (according to their t-shirts anyway) were wearing matching black biker shorts, bright pink tank tops and a ton of make-up. I think the t-shirt was pretty accurate.~  Rio, Brazil
*2 girls, both from Texas, one blond, one brunette.~ Santiago, Chile [/color
*He saw 2 girls he called "the sisters" (but could have been friends also) dressed in blue shirts ~ Santiago Chile
*The 2 girls, one blond/reddish hair, ~Delhi, India via Bangkok, Thailand
*The sisters were blond ~  Portland, PDX
*2 sisters (they looked related) also young and wearing matching nike workout gear- they definitely stood out~  Portland, PDX
*a very tan blond woman in a florescent green sporty outfit~  Portland, PDX

Well since Cambodia will be a new country, I expect they would place the extended leg there. That way they are highlighting new places without revisiting the old.

I got up this afternoon (it's summer, what can I say?) looking to see if they released the Survivor cast, and instead I see The Amazing Race cast! I pulled up my document that I was keeping as a referance for when I needed it and felt to lazy to go back to page 1, and we did a great job! I'm psyched that I was right about Andrew! The cast looks fun, but a part of me wishes we coulde continue this. Everyone here really gave it their all, and this is the result!

SEARCHING FOR THE SITE OF THE PHOTOS

My hypothesis has been that it sould be at one of the Los Angeles area's botanical gardens which had a modern building adjacent. The answer to that has been the null set. These are the sites I have considered and rejected, always for lack of that modern building adjacent:

Los Angeles Botanical Garden
Descanso Gardens
Arboretum and Botanical Garden of Los Angeles County
Los Angeles Zoo and Botanic Gardens
Viriginia Robinson Garden
South Coast Botanical Garden
Getty Museum
Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Garden
Manhattan Beach Botanical Garden
Pleasant Valley historical Society and Botanical Garden
Huntington Library, Art Collections & Botanical Gardens
Hannah Carter Japanese Garden
Wrigley Memorial and Botanical Gardens, Catalina Island

I do not know whether the Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden has the right kind of modern building adjacent, but adjacent to it is the UCLA campus so iot is quite possible. the floral content appears to be a reasonable fit(although thet same is true for several others above): Photos of Mildred E.Mathias Botanical Garden (http://www.pbase.com/purpod/mem_botanical)

If the Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden is not right, then my conclusion is that the site must be a large commercial building that has an adjacent gardens for show.
I would appreciate it if one of our LosAngeles area detectives (Chateau?) could state whether that corner of UCLA looks like the buildings shown in the photos in this thread.

Peach, I will take a crack at it. First of all, remember that the geography team at World Race Productions is not too swift. Apparently, other parts of their organization cannot remember where Amazing Races have gone. Fiji has never been part of an Amazing Race except that the flight from Sydney, Australia to Phoenix by David and Jeff may have gone over there but not stopped. So, what we are looking at is an attempt at deception by WRP. We know that flying from Santiago to Auckland AR13 could have taken a route through Fiji, but it would have added at least one day and probably more to their time. That would be the only way that AR13 could have touched down in Fiji and it did not happen!

They don't have time to go to Fiji .. India to Fiji to Russia, far fetched the total distance from India to Fiji is 7,329 miles.
We know they barely had time to get to Cambodia from NZ.

I think they probably just leading us on, but anyway.
 CBS announced  that one team in the finale won't make it to the finish line because of a a mistake (http://www.realitytvworld.com/news/cbs-reveals-identities-of-the-amazing-race-thirteenth-season-cast-7670.php).
  van Munster statred that Andrew &Dan are smart and strong but mistake prone, along the photo avidace from the alleged finale leg I think they came in 3rd place.

again I think they are just probably just jerking us around, but what do u think?

retard, every leg except NELs or TBCs a team gets eliminated, almost always because of their mistakes. What's the big deal? van Munster is famous for mistakes in information he gives out to the press or in interviews.

I think they probably just leading us on, but anyway.
 CBS announced  that one team in the finale won't make it to the finish line because of a a mistake (http://www.realitytvworld.com/news/cbs-reveals-identities-of-the-amazing-race-thirteenth-season-cast-7670.php).
  van Munster statred that Andrew &Dan are smart and strong but mistake prone, along the photo avidace from the alleged finale leg I think they came in 3rd place.
again I think they are just probably just jerking us around, but what do u think?



What the hell photo are you talking about retard?

Pre-race behind the scenes interview!! :hearts:

Amazing Race’ Season 13 teams are announced


Finally! After almost seven months of waiting, Season 13 of “The Amazing Race” (”TAR” 13) is drawing near. Sunday, Sept. 28, is the premiere, so set your TiVos now. In the meantime, check out our video with host Phil Keoghan shot in January 2008, where he highlights his Top 5 countries from past “TAR” seasons.

CBS has done us all a favor and posted the “The Amazing Race” 13 cast bios, so we can start making predictions about just who will melt down with a “My ox is broken, and I hate you!” first. But I’m going to give everyone some extra info on this season’s teams — or rather my opinions, after spending about 20 minutes with each of them last April at a behind-the-scenes CBS media event, just before they headed out on the race.
When I met them, all the teams had seen one another, but each team had a handler preventing them from talking to one another, so just as I was speculating about each of them, many of them were guessing about one another and probing to see if there was any dirt I could share on their competition. So now, in no particular order, here are the “TAR” 13 teams, as I see them.

One of the most interesting things about Terence and Sarah was the fact that almost every other team said they were the ones to worry most about. The tracksuits and Terence’s runner’s physique were obviously intimidating factors. Sarah having to leave her BlackBerry behind was definitely a top concern on her list. They claimed to have a “never quit” attitude, and they listed Latvia and Argentina as countries they hoped the race would take them to. Terence and Sarah didn’t strike me as teammates who would be completely combative, nor completely harmonious while racing. They had confidence and a competitive edge, but then again, what team on this show doesn’t start out that way? I’m not sure how they’ll place, but unless they get hopelessly lost or miss a flight, I think they’ll be part of the race for a while.

Like it or not, you can always count on CBS to give us a pair of cute blonds wearing pink, and in Season 13, the team is Marisa and Brooke. Am I the only one who’d like the blonds to show up wearing all black with a bunch of tattoos, for variety’s sake? Well, that’s not the fault of Marisa or Brooke, best friends who were prepared to “lie, cheat and steal” if that’s what it takes. And of course flirt — they were more than willing to play up a ditzy perception if it meant it would get them further in the race. These two were hoping to visit Italy and Greece, as well as get in some skydiving and bungee-jumping, we’ll see how they fare after a lack of sleep and some bug dishes. Marisa and Brooke didn’t want anyone to have preconceived notions about them, but while they were certainly friendly and nice, nothing about this team indicated they’d go beyond the “team pinks” we’ve seen in previous seasons. I’d like to be proven wrong, but I don’t know if they can do it.

 Someone already nicknamed Andrew and Dan “Team Superbad” and I’m happy to go with it. These guys were one of my favorite teams to meet — they were funny, somewhat geeky and absolutely entertaining, a casting director’s dream. A little overconfident, these two were already thinking that they’d “blow the cash in Vegas” if they won the race. Dan says he’s persuasive, and hopes he can use that to get locals to help them when needed, and he’s good at sports and geography, both of which will prove useful if it wasn’t all talk. Andrew said he’s observant, personable, and has a good visual memory, which will prove helpful on any puzzle challenges they’re bound to come across. They both want to go somewhere off the beaten path while racing, and claimed they plan to try to get some of the “girl teams” to do the wrong thing and won’t fall prey to flirtation. We’ll see … as enjoyable as these two were, and as much as they seem to bring to the race, I think overconfidence may be their downfall.

 My photo caption for Aja and Ty is “The couple least likely to fall apart.” Of all the dating teams this season, these two have it together the most. They said they’re “not naive. Bickering will happen…,” which was one of the reasons I think they’ll do well. There’s no denial about the pressures of competing on the race, but the two have a genuine affection for each other. They’re looking for competition (although they prefer not to visit anyplace too cold … good luck with that), and would love things to come down to a last-minute foot race so they can prove themselves. Yemen was tops on their list of countries to visit, and as for previous racers, they enjoyed Nate and Jen for “entertainment value.” That’s putting a positive spin on it! I think Aja and Ty can do really well on the race, and I certainly hope they prove my instincts right.

 Mark and Bill were the first team I met, and while I don’t know if they’ll win the race, they’re the ones I’m rooting for most at the start of the game. These guys are just plain fun to talk to, and couldn’t wait to get going. Big competitors, these friends love games and plan to bluff and compete with the best of them. They share my view of “TAR” — which is you can play the game, and treat it like the race it is, and still act respectful toward the teams you’re (you hope) leaving in your dust. Bill hopes to see New Zealand, and is the strategic one on the team, while Mark is the poker player who hopes his bluffing skills will come in useful. These two know their biggest weakness is their physical condition (not in the best of shape at the time we met) but planned strategically, bringing the lightest, most efficient packs possible, and practiced for the race in advance, doing things like convincing everyone in a line to let them go first, etc. I hope they go far, because I think they’ll be one of the most fun teams to watch.

 The parent-child team dynamic proved fraught with tension last season as Ron and Christina learned to get along, but I don’t think the mother-son combo of Toni and Dallas will have the same problems. While Toni is learning to let her 22-year-old son go a little, and hopes that the race will help her stop telling him what to do all the time, this pair has an obvious love for each other, and are just as happy teasing each other as giving praise and affection. Dallas hopes to get to Africa or Egypt, and the only thing he wants to avoid is a challenge involving snakes. Toni got a trainer to help prep for the physical activities, but will leave as many of those as she can to Dallas, while being ready to take on the food challenges herself.

 Nick and Starr are a very close brother-sister team — so close that he’s dating her best friend, and has no problem complimenting Starr’s beauty, and hopes her good looks will be an added advantage while racing. They’re definitely competitive with each other, and think some sibling bickering may rear its ugly head, but ultimately are confident their close relationship will be a benefit. As for strategy, they think alliances are an important part of the race, and thought Mark and Bill looked like a good team to try to work with. They admire former racers Rob and Amber for their ability to “think of any possible advantage” and plan to split all the work and tasks 50-50, with the exception of driving. I think they’ll make it to at least the middle of the race, but I wish they had seemed more genuine, and less ready with sound bites when we met.

 Just like there’s always a blond team, you’ll always find one older team on “The Amazing Race,” and this season it’s Anita and Arthur, the blueberry farmers-beekeepers from Oregon. Just as sweet as you would expect, I don’t think these two are long for the race. Vegetarians, they already were concerned about food challenges, and viewed going on the race as “world-class, serious, fun” (as compared with the competition it is). Among a list of many countries they hoped to see on the race were Tibet, Nepal, and Mongolia, and I certainly hope they get the chance to see them. I came away from meeting Anita and Arthur with the impression that as nice as they were, they lacked the competitive nature and drive to keep them in the race for more than a leg or two.

 Another team determined to be the first all-female team to win on “TAR,” Kelly and Christy definitely trained hard (they used packs) and have a lot of drive, but I remain unconvinced they’ve got a real shot. Although it was in jest, they did mention they hoped they’d have the opportunity for a mimosa while on the race, which makes me wonder just how willing they’ll be to get grimy as needed. They think their biggest downfall is that sometimes their emotions override their goals, so I hope they manage to keep that in check. They hope to go to Fiji and New Zealand (who doesn’t?) while racing, and hope skydiving is on the challenge list. I hope they do well, but in all honesty I doubt they’ll be part of the final three teams racing for the final prize.

 Ken and Tina. What can I say about this couple? Married, but separated for reasons including his infidelity (it’s in the bio, people, I’m not just gossiping), they actually told me they think the race will help bring them back together. Sigh. Really? How many times have we seen couples who are starting on a solid foundation fall apart under the stress of the race? Does anyone really think that a myriad of physical challenges, severe lack of sleep, cultures you’re not used to, and no time away from each other is a good form of therapy? Oh right, Tina and Ken do. To their advantage, they are both in great shape and have done lots of traveling (and hope to see Patagonia, Israel and Africa on the race). I actually think they may be in the race for a while — they’ve got strength and a competitive drive going for them — but I think these two are this season’s Nate and Jen … I’m prepared for lots of arguing when they’re on my TV screen.

 Another couple using the race as “therapy you can’t pay for” (they said it, I didn’t) is Anthony and Stephanie. And while I’m suspect of anyone using the race as couples therapy, I did like these two. They definitely have issues (he thinks she’s controlling, she says she’s just opinionated; she dislikes former racers Rob and Amber for being “too cocky,” he thinks cockiness is required in competition), but they know what they are, and have a sense of humor about themselves (at least when they’ve had a decent night’s sleep). Stephanie’s planning on taking on zip-lining or skydiving. (He’s afraid of heights. And deep water, so she’ll do any required diving too.) But Anthony is ready for any eating challenge thrown at them. And, as it says in the bio, if they make it through the race, Anthony’s ready to propose (always good to hang your future on how well you do on a reality show). I wonder just how hard CBS is hoping for that to happen on camera!



So that’s it … your teams for “TAR” 13! Remember, all of these impressions are based on about 20 minutes per team, so just wait to hear how opinionated I get once the race actually starts! See you back here Sunday, Sept. 28 — and root for Mark and Bill or Aja and Ty!

You know, i know it really isn't gona help that much, but the numbers that were on the bags indicate the number te team is listed on the site. since Toni and Dallas had #6 on their bag, they are the 6th team listed on the site at the top.

The previous seasons other than 12 didn't list the teams in number order. Season 12 sort of did, but they messed some of them up. This season might have most of the teams in number order like last season, but some teams might be in the wrong place.

I don't know if anyone has noticed this, but similar teams have the same tag numbers between seasons. All the African-American teams have a 4, and the team everyone considers the strongest usually has the number 7 - Rob & Amber, Eric & Jeremy, Tyler & James. In season 12, Ari & Staella had a 7 too. 10 is usually a couple, 8 is the old team, and lately 2 has been the number for blonde girls. Probably not too relevant here, but an interesting thing to note.

probably nothing but I've been noting all commercials and Anthony and Stephanie are near invisible, Toni and Dallas are a close second

Well Anthony & Stephanie were never spotted. They were invisibal to us! Maybe they are eliminated 1st? Supprising about Toni and Dallas though. We know they make the final 6.

bump for the blind and adding that our eyewitness, stacy, thinks the teams she saw were Marisa and Brooke and Terence and Sarah. Marisa and Brooke make no sense to me but hey I wasn't there so what do I know?

Just organizing the team info witnessed in Portland here:




Well, I went down there again to check out the scene.  Parked my car & lo and behold, what do I see but two people driving away in one of the minivans from the closed off lot.  Jumped back in the car to follow it - they drove down to 2nd av. and are parked in front of voodoo donut.  I bet they have or will have a shoot there - it's a weird Portland thing.  Two people waiting in the car.  Wish they would leave so I could follow them some more..

Well, sorry peeps, I had to come back to work.. After about half an hour of waiting, I walked by the van and it is a couple PAs waiting for something.  Literally doing a crossword.  I did see a conversation they had with what looked like the manager of Voodoo Donut.  I went in there to get me a donut and asked the clerk when the Amazing Race was going to be there.  He gave me a blank stare - so maybe the staff doesn't know about it, or has been instructed to not answer.  Maybe they are just getting donuts for the crew.. who knows.  Now I'm back to paying

There was a clue box right in front of VooDoo donuts, I was there today. When nobody was close to coming, the producers would cover the box with a trash bag but when people were nearby, they would uncover the box and shoo anyone away that was standing near it. It was probably one of the last clues if the Pittock Mansion was the last stop.

 

They are in Portland today. I was on 5th and Salmon outside my office and two different sets of couples ran by (guy/girl and girl/girl) with a camerman and soundman each.   It looked too like Amazing Race not to be.



I just ran down the street in Portland following two girls and the camera crew.
The went to voodoo doughnuts (for a clue I think)   Police talked to producers because fans were running after the racers.
They thought someone was running out on a meal bill...  the team got into the van and drove off.

I know, girl/girl was stupid.....I was a little excited about the siting.  I saw them about 1:55pm running North.  But, I did notice they looked awfully rested, not frazzled at all....maybe decoys.

I was waiting to pick my boyfriend up at International arrivals around Noon today.  saw a young couple, very fit and attractive and then 2 sisters (they looked related) also young and wearing matching nike workout gear- they definitely stood out, then when a camera crew w/ tons of gear started filming them running thru the terminal, well that's when it clicked! the A.R!! i love the show and had NO idea they might be in PDX. so, my boyfriend saw them in customs and he thought they had come from Moscow before PDX.
Cool! can't wait to see it on TV.  

i don't recognize the teams i saw from any of those pics- the couple (i am assuming that by the way- could be bro/ sis) she had dark hair, he had dark blond hair.  very fit and looked like the had just climbed a mtn. 
Thanks stacy !! Were the 2 girls blond by any chance? we are missing some of the teams pictures but word is there were 2 blonds in pink.
Yes- sisters were blond!


more from the wweek.com site in comments  (http://wweek.com/wwire/?p=11881). I suppose 13 - 1111 means 11 episodes *sigh*

**SPOILER**

I followed the girls, and the camera... I would bet money this was a decoy, Sammyk you nailed it. The girls got into a WRP van near the Voodoo Doughnuts, the were asking people along the way where Voodoo was... YET NO CLUE was to be found there. They all got into a van and drove off.

 

I have never posted before but have loved TAR since season 1.

Just talked with a co-worker whose husband was hiking in the Columbia Gorge at about 2:30 pm and saw racing teams, vehicles and a helicopter in the vicinity of Bridge of the Gods. He wasn't sure what it was until she called him about the Portland rumor. Could it be the race?

I work in Cascade Locks, and there is a zip line in place right now from the Bridge of the Gods to Thunder Island.  I don't know when they put it up, but it sure wasn't there yesterday!   :yess:  I got there in time to see the camera crews packing up and loading equipment into vans, but a fellow teacher saw two couples ride the zip line down to the island.  This was between 2:30-3:30 this afternoon.  There were helicopters circling the site, three camera crews at and around the bridge, and they apparently paid the owners of the Charburger restaurant to close for the day so they could secure the parking lot which overlooks the river and the zip line.  There were six yellow cabs at the parking lot where the access to the island is, along with more camera crews, and the officer that I talked to said they always stage it so that people don't know for sure how many couples are left.  Does that sound reasonable?
The other teacher talked to one of the cab drivers, who said he picked up two people at the airport from an overseas flight, took them to Newberg where they "ran around and looked for a clue", then drove them to Cascade Locks.  For some reason someone asked him if this was Fear Factor, but he said it was more like a scavenger hunt.  Apparently he has not actually seen Amazing Race himself, so didn't know anything about the usual process.



I saw TAR teams today as well at PDX.  I drive the international buses at PDX but not today.  However, I was driving the terminal parking lot  buses today and saw a camera man /sound man  running after a very tan blond woman in a florescent green sporty outfit, backpack  and one of those TAR  clue cards (?)  in her hand just about the time  the Germany  flight  would have landed. They were getting a taxi here at PDX.  I had to keep  my  eyes on my driving  but a person in the bus said they were from The Amazing Race.

My  next  loop  around (20 minutes later), I arrived  at the terminal  and  saw  more teams grabbing a taxi.  Fortunately  I was driving the Employee lot bus  and one of the supervisors  (who  got  on  camera & had to sign a TAR release  for TV)   confirmed that the teams  in fact were from TAR and got off the Lufthansa  flight from Germany to Portland OR.    They were headed  up to Washington state. He also said there were only  4 teams and perhaps  the other two teams  went up via  Seattle first -  but that of course is purely  speculation.

Okay guys, I AM able to share some more info w/ you!

With many thanks to our incredible  Portland photographer who has been hard at work on our behalf!!

I'm pleased to report that I saw a male-male team in downtown Portland 
this evening
(peach: that would be 5/14) at about 6:00 local time. A cameraman and a sound man 
were following them.

I saw them head west along Alder, then south on 10th, then east on 
Morrison. They asked for directions at the food carts that occupy the 
parking lot north of Alder, and they looked at a metal map kiosk at 
the corner of 10th and Morrison.

They looked to be mid to late 20s or even maybe early 30s. Both were 
wearing khaki trousers; the taller one was slightly heavyset and had 
reddish curly hair and was wearing a baseball cap and a blue T-shirt. 
The other had blonde to sandy blonde hair and no hat. Both had 
backpacks.

What struck me, though, was how slowly they were moving compared to my 
expections. They certainly were not running. I don't know if this 
means they are a decoy, or that they are real but exhausted, or that 
they are real and in last place, or what.

I often buy magazines at a store on 9th & Alder, so I asked the 
cashier there if I knew anything about TAR in Portland. He said, "Oh, 
is that what that was?" I said, "Is that what WHAT was?" He said he 
had seen a male  and a female plus two-man crew
also proceeding along 
Alder. I asked him when that was. He said about two hours previously, 
which puts it at around 4:00 p.m. I asked him if he recalled any other 
details; he said he did not, except that the girl was pretty. :-/I did not have a camera with me, but where they were is VERY central 
location; and while Portland is considerably less densely occupied 
than, say, LA or even Denver, I will be very surprised if no one here 
managed to take a reasonable picture of at least one of the teams.

I asked our source if these guys could maybe be who he saw?

And so sadly, since we don't even know their names yet (that seems so wrong somehow!), he replied:

Quote
Oooh! Yes, I do think so! Their relative heights and hair colors match!

Sad because this screams decoy to me...and interestingly, I believe it may be decoy being run AFTER the actual finale MAT arrival...
