Title: Amazing Race 17 LIVE Sightings! Tweets Go here please! *read post 1*
Post by: georgiapeach on May 20, 2010, 07:30:33 AM
LIVE sightings go here!  :hearts:

If you are posting a tweet, please post the tweet, the tweet time, and LINK TO  the twitter user name.

Please be kind, and don't all bury the poor unsuspecting twitterer with questions, if you see another RFFer on the job, let them handle it.

If you are concerned that any info gained from any sighting or tweet may be private or confidential or just "too much too soon", feel free to PM or email puddin or me to ask before you post.

If you have a live sighting, help us as much as you can with WHO (be descriptive, what they look like, is it a male/female team for example, what color they are wearing is helpful) WHAT are they doing, WHERE (as exactly as possible..street? airport gate? be specific!), WHEN (what time zone?, exact time), and any descriptions of the action! Pictures are treasured!

And even though we all get excited, please, once we have a possible location, take the discussion to the location thread (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,21995.msg524067.html#msg524067) and leave the Twitter zone free for incoming info! :ty3:

If you have a spoiler and prefer to share it privately, you can email either puddin or me, our emails are in our profiles. Your confidentiality will be respected. You can also PM us once you have a minimum of 5 posts here.

Hang on guys...this matches one piece of info and directly conflicts with another, so not sure...

Can someone go see if there are any other tweets please??

Levels Audio did a mix session with Phil 8 hours ago...so I am doubting this Seattle tweet....

Mix session with Phil Keoghan of the Amazing Race.
about 8 hours ago via web

Also our best info suggests that the start is not yet...but always willing to be proven wrong!

I could use some help checking tweets please....

s7p    @peachrff they had on yellow jersey's that said Amazing Race on them. and a stack of cards with directions or clues maybe w/ the show logo.
12 minutes ago via web in reply to peachrff

Sounds like a local event?

What bothers me is the time...too late in the day for our guys, and our guys don't wear Amazing Race jerseys.

Also this is in direct conflict with some other info we have, so I am going to cautiously say...not us, unless we get more info.

But stay tuned, TAR17 is not far away, the next tweet could be us!

I don't know what to make of this?? This contradicts something we strongly believe to be true...so I don't think teams have left yet.

But bring it on....I will need more to be convinced....

hmmmmm.  If it isn't true, someone is working overtime to make us think it is Seattle. :lol:

Not so fast guys, this is NOT confirmed.

La releve is a youth group, sounds like a youth group challenge to me.

Can't comment on the others yet, but we have something else that makes us question this...so until I see a pic, I am going to withhold judgement.

Station is a term for the leg stops, commonly used in school races in the Philippines and the Asian countries.

But I truly think we are too soon, but will keep following up on Discovery Park> But an evening start would be pretty much unheard of...

However, if the Seattle-Vancouver rumors are true, this would be the first drive we have driving to a new city in the first leg. So an evening start could allow for the driving to be occurring at night with the actual tasks for the leg occurring on Day #2 (with a bunching point and specific departure times).

Take it for its worth but on Wikipedia they have the route listed with a source, which I havent checked.

It also states the producers left the route behind at a restaurant.

It says Seattle will be the starting point with Double Legs In Canada (Whitehorse and Vancouver), Hungary (Debrecen and Budapest) and Australia (Canberra and Brisbane) with stops in Africa Ghana and & Togo. Also a return to Dubai and Sri Lanka and a leg in Sheffield England.

Seattle sightings are a fake out.

Australia imay also be unlikely this season.

Like I said, someone is trying very hard to mislead us. Be alert!!

I'm not buying it. The reference listed for the Wikipedia entry is The Seattle Times, but a quick search of their database has only turned up the fall programming schedule, and entries about previous races.

Just a little thing to remember when spotting teams live: remember the tags are most likely not going to be orange or numbered.

Yes, all the other backpacks (that I could see, since not all are shown) had those tags. They probably changed them so we couldn't recognize a team as easily. (:;)

The cars they drove still had the numbers, however. :yess:

Here is the whole conversation on Twitter with joy:

joy:Saw them filming Amazing Race at Logan today!
23 minutes ago via mobile web

graytex:Very cool! What terminal did you see them in? Did you see where they are going?

joy:  AA terminal; all I know is that they weren't on an American Eagle flight...
2 minutes ago via mobile web


This would mean Terminal B because, American Airlines is there.

If they are on an American Airlines flight they are on their way to london or Paris. If they are going on a direct flight.

American Airlines is located at Terminal B, building 2.  
-Flights to London-Heathrow, LAX, Paris-CDG, SFO, Dallas-Ft Worth, Chicago-ORD, and Miami are departing out of that area.

Another from Facebook:

... was checking in at Logan today in Boston and beside me is a team in next  season's Amazing Race! Saw three teams check in and a bunch of other teams running around with their camera crews. I guess it started today in Boston. I'll record it when it comes on because I'm pretty sure from where I was standing that I was in some of the shots. My ugly mug is unlikely to make it to the screen, but you never know.

This update from an eye-witness: "They are currently at Logan Airport in Boston. Not sure where they are heading, but they are in the area of the terminal that is bound for Frankfurt, Germany."

To clarify, evenmore they were at Terminal B2 and E.  So American Airlines to LHR and Lufthansa to Frankfurt and from those places to somewhere in Europe then.

Full description from the videographer
Quote
Here is exclusive Video Shot At my Dock This Morning Showing the CBS Amazing Race Teams Boarding Gloucester Fishing Boats- The Jennie C, No Excuses, Karen Lynn, Tuna.Com, Lady J and Lady Lane.

I accidentally call it the Great Race in the video but I know it’s called The Amazing Race.

You can see the teams dressed in different colors walking down the gangway to board the fishing boats at the State Fish Pier.  Then they head out single file past the historic Paint Factory to  Gloucester’s inner harbor where they passed by The Greasy Pole and Hammond Castle en route back to The Eastern point Yacht club where they disembarked and the race begins.  On East Main Street one of the teams stopped the Mrs and her friends who just got out of a run-fit class for directions to Boston’s Logan Airport.  She had to sign a release stating that she may be on TV.

One team stopped while in traffic on East Main St and rolled down their window.  It was a good looking man and woman who asked how to get to Logan.   When the car stopped two cameramen popped out of SUV which was right behind the man and woman race team who were rolling seperately in a Smart Car. The cameramen and a microphone were shoved in the Mrs face and when she replied how to get to Logan the team told her not to speak to anyone else.  Then they signed the releases and were off.

So they have the team in a smart car and the crew in a bigger car behind? They probably have cameras installed inside the cars, then.

It seems that VS12 departed about 17 mins late (20:02 instead of 19:45), which gives the first teams on AA108 a little extra time buffer, unless the time is made up enroute.

Britain is a little different from here..not sure how much the twitter craze has hit there. Our best bet will be tourists.

Stonehenge is normally about an hour and a half from Heathrow...but the M25 will have a good bit of traffic at that hour and could slow them down...but once they are on the M3 they should be fine.

I believe the first flight only had 3 teams on it, and it's quite possible that any team could be delayed in customs so the chances of picking up a group from the second batch of races is probably more likely

Maybe on the M4 heading west between Heathrow and the M25 where they go south?

I'm looking at the M25 camera choices, and I'm probably going with one of the ones near Heathrow. I guess it's a crapshoot.

Editing 'cause this one peaks interests - M25 between J14 Heathrow terminal 4 and J15 M4 interchange: Heathrow. I'm guessing we just have to have more than one camera up.

And are they supposed to be so slow? The cameras.

They'll be coming out of Heathrow's Short Stay Car Park 4, if that helps. I was at Logan airport earlier today and heard them talking.

Would they do an overnight rest at/near Stonehenge?  Theres nothing much there to do except walking around and viewing the mysterious structure.

No, its already 7:20 AM there. No need to stop and wait.

It takes about 70miles from Heathrow to Stonehenge, they would have driving time, Stonehenge may just be a route marker and not a roadblock/detour point.

More background info from the comments section on the video post of the GoodMorningGloucester (http://goodmorninggloucester.wordpress.com/) blog

>>so cool, how great you got to be a part of this! except… about 4 smart cars barreling around the corner near the laundromat nearly hit me head on today…not cool.

>>Smart cars? Are you sure they were part of the race? They always use cars big enough for 4; the two contestants, a camera operator, and a sound technician.

>>[reply by blogger] You know those big yellow cards? They had them in the car. It was the Amazing Race.

I found a blog post from a couple who saw teams from the Amazing Race while in line at customs at Heathrow.

After exiting the plane and waiting for hubby to relieve himself, I was faced with Bear Grills - you know the bloke from Man V's Wild. I find him totally fake and annoying,  yet I wanted to  get my camera and get a snap. Sadly he was off in his cargos and dark sunnies and big hat before I could reach and grab it from my backpack.

The mornings excitement did not stop there. As we were making our way along what seemed to be a 20km walk to the customs area there were two chicks with huge back-packs, and matching outfits charging past us all, pushing and shoving. Michael whispered to me "amazing race"!!! "Yeah as if" I quipped. Then 2 mins later the camera, and sound crew came charging through, trying to catch up. 10 mins later all the teams were charging through us trying to be the first team to get to the gates.

It was so very exciting, a buzz filled the customs area - which as you all know is a nice change as normally it's a long boring wait to get that stamp and the all clear to collect your bags. For any Amazing Race fans, you will be pleased to know I called over the black team, a guy and gal with a few tats and a nice demeanor and offered them the spot in front of us in line - which they accepted gracefully. Sadly no-one else would let them pass. What tossers, hello they are racing for a million bucks!!!!


I posted a couple of questions (what color outfits were the women wearing, how many other teams were there besides the women and the black team) and I'll wait to see if they are able to reply.

Gah, Sam, ya beat me to it! I'm going to google maps and see how long it says the trip should take, might give us a rough idea of validity, since Joey has no location listed on his twitter page.

ETA: Google maps says 18 minutes, and there was 16 minutes between tweets, so it is possible.

I'm not too sure about it. If I read back right, the flights arrived around 7am here which was 10 and a half hours ago, so either the teams he is with are really slow or there has been a small break somewhere.

I think that is due to the iPad. I don't have one, nor do I know anybody that has one, so I can't test it out. But its not a phone, so it wouldn't be correct to put it under Mobile Tweets (Or whatever they are called, I'm not that familiar with it.)

Anyway, if he keeps tweeting, I'll keep posting while its relevant. Might as well get it all here, then we can decide if its fake or not.

If google maps time is correct, Teams Pink & Orange should be at the fort in the next couple of minutes, according to our tweeter.
Ooh, I wonder if they formed an alliance from basically being on the same boat together?  Both teams looked like they were getting pretty chummy in one of those screenshots (though I kinda thought it wasn't allowed until after they left the starting line, but hey, I guess some rules can be changed).

Okay so teams arrived at the airport this morning on two flights. They were stopped at the airport for about 3 hours i was told, not sure why. teams were released in order they arrived. If i remember correctly, 3 teams left the airport first, the the following 8 teams about a half hour latter. A m/m asian team asked me how to get to stonehenge. Living right in salisbury i directed them there and allowed them to follow me, about an hour and 15 minute drive. Team were split up when i got their. It looked like they were doing two separate challenges, my wife a huge fan of the show said it was a detour. One challenge was very physical, it involved moving stony pieces and assembling a statue using a ropes and levy system (looked very hard). The other was a large puzzle it looked like involving the monument, and what appeared to be a sun dial. while i was there, two teams switched from the puzzle to the stone, and one team switched from the stone to the puzzle. The first team complete was a f/f team. After about 15 minutes 2 more teams finished. One was a older couple who asked me to direct them to Stourhead lake, i offered to let them follow me. When they got their i am assuming they had to search the HUGE grounds for their clue. i am not sure if their was a challenge because it took them a while. A few more teams showed up and the placement of teams that changed from arriving to leaving was different. 4th out was the older couple and then they asked me if i knew where Salisbury Cathedral was. I took them their. This is were one team member sat out. I am not exactly sure what they were doing in their but whatever it was it took a while. Teams were in the about 40 minutes. One female came out crying explaining to her partner that it was too hard, but she went back in to complete it. I beleive it had something to do with a bell because whenever the bell would chime a team member would come running out. The first two teams out were a f/f pink team and and a m/m orange team were out first and one of the guys said "that was the most challenging thing i have ever had to do in my life, and i went to med school". I followed the two teams to Fort Old Sarum, i could not get past the gate but i saw the two cars drive up the hill and run to what i believe to be the finish. They f/f had a little bit of a lead in the running because one of the males were slow. So i believe the f/f team came up first. While arriving a m/m team wearing green went in and about 5-10 minutes  came right back out look very pissed and returned from where they came from. 3 teams arrived in between then, and then that team arrived again. Then at the same exact time a m/m blue asian team and a m/f team came in and it was neck and neck until they went out of view. They were running when i last saw them literally right next to each other so i am not sure who came in last. But it was a very exciting day, i will have pictures up later. Does anybody no how to post them? also i am going to try and go back tomorrow to see where they are going next!

The ten surviving teams are at the Pit Stop now, and the first team's been eliminated and probably being shipped off to Elimination Station as we speak?

Yep, and hopefully Joey can give us a clue as to who that unfortunate first team is.
Oh, I do hope it's one of the coed teams, as it sounds like all three men's teams made it.  After seeing that the show's finally been brave enough to cast four women's teams, I'd rather one not go first (three of them sounded like they were in good positions, while the last wasn't mentioned).  Last time one did go out first was Gina & Sylvia in TAR3 -- fourteen seasons ago.

Okay so teams arrived at the airport this morning on two flights. They were stopped at the airport for about 3 hours i was told, not sure why. teams were released in order they arrived. If i remember correctly, 3 teams left the airport first, the the following 8 teams about a half hour latter. A m/m asian team asked me how to get to stonehenge. Living right in salisbury i directed them there and allowed them to follow me, about an hour and 15 minute drive. Team were split up when i got their. It looked like they were doing two separate challenges, my wife a huge fan of the show said it was a detour. One challenge was very physical, it involved moving stony pieces and assembling a statue using a ropes and levy system (looked very hard). The other was a large puzzle it looked like involving the monument, and what appeared to be a sun dial. while i was there, two teams switched from the puzzle to the stone, and one team switched from the stone to the puzzle. The first team complete was a f/f team. After about 15 minutes 2 more teams finished. One was a older couple who asked me to direct them to Stourhead lake, i offered to let them follow me. When they got their i am assuming they had to search the HUGE grounds for their clue. i am not sure if their was a challenge because it took them a while. A few more teams showed up and the placement of teams that changed from arriving to leaving was different. 4th out was the older couple and then they asked me if i knew where Salisbury Cathedral was. I took them their. This is were one team member sat out. I am not exactly sure what they were doing in their but whatever it was it took a while. Teams were in the about 40 minutes. One female came out crying explaining to her partner that it was too hard, but she went back in to complete it. I beleive it had something to do with a bell because whenever the bell would chime a team member would come running out. The first two teams out were a f/f pink team and and a m/m orange team were out first and one of the guys said "that was the most challenging thing i have ever had to do in my life, and i went to med school". I followed the two teams to Fort Old Sarum, i could not get past the gate but i saw the two cars drive up the hill and run to what i believe to be the finish. They f/f had a little bit of a lead in the running because one of the males were slow. So i believe the f/f team came up first. While arriving a m/m team wearing green went in and about 5-10 minutes  came right back out look very pissed and returned from where they came from. 3 teams arrived in between then, and then that team arrived again. Then at the same exact time a m/m blue asian team and a m/f team came in and it was neck and neck until they went out of view. They were running when i last saw them literally right next to each other so i am not sure who came in last. But it was a very exciting day, i will have pictures up later. Does anybody no how to post them? also i am going to try and go back tomorrow to see where they are going next!
Okay, but do you know what the team makeups were between the green alpha male team having to leave and come back?

And it sounds like a women's team won the first leg.  Unless they were just the first of the eight teams in the back to arrive.

Joey, if you have an account on flickr, or any photosharing site, you can post pictures by pasting the url, then highlight the url, and press the image button (it's right below the Italic button in the preview screen).

Or you can go here to learn how to attach photos to a post: http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,12375.0.html

Or - if you want, just email them to me at the address in my profile, and I'll get them up.

Your same M/M asian team?? There is only one asian team...

and what did  the M/F team look like?? What color were they wearing??

You can email them to me (address in my profile if you want and I will post them) or upload them somewhere like [banned image hosting site] or photobucket and use the IMG code. If you email me I can label them with RFF so they don't wander without permission.

Thanks again Joey, this was wonderful! Stourhead is a beautiful location! Wonder what they did there?

And can you describe the "older" couple?? There is a grey haired guy with a younger blonde female....

Joey you're the best! :jumpy:

Thanks so much for being patient with us!  I'm sure there wll be lots of questions coming your way...

At this point, we can only identify  teams based on colors (of clothing) and gender makup, so if you could let us know what color teams did what that would be helpful.  For instance:  what color team came out crying from the Roadblock?  what color f/f team finished Stonehenge first? what color was the "older team" wearing? what color was the m/f team that arrived last and was in a footrace to the pitstop? and just to be clear  the m/m asian team that was also racing to not be last is the same team youi helped get to Stonehenge?

Thanks for helping us (and our Racers...I'm sure they appreciated your help enormously!

Can you go back in 12 hours?
Are there photos?
Can we have a team arrival list?

But it seems that we'll see photos soon enough and you've told us the team arrival...just can you go back in 12 hours?

I can't believe Kenny and Kevin might leave first! Exciting  :waves: :yess: :hugs:

sorry i cant really remember names that great, although im pretty sure that their was a laura, george or georgio (maybe)? and a brian those names stick out

f/f light green team came out crying
f/f pink finish detour first
the older male and younger female i was helping was wearing  yellow
the m/f that might have been last had tattoos and was wearing black

and correct it was the same asian team, looked like father and son, son look very young, perhaps not 20? they fell behind at the detour.

and yes when my wife returns from shopping with the blackberry i will upload pictures, and also i will be returning in 12 hours!

Wonderful job with Joey everyone!!! Thanks to the whole team who spotted him as a hoax early on, especially Neobie, Rich, Caelestor and all the rest of you who PM'd me with your concerns.  I am REALLY proud of you all!!

But sad that one of our own would go to such lengths to deceive us :( , and kinda sad at losing some of those locations  :lol:

As TexasLady said, we had him by afternoon yesterday, but were waiting for him to hang himself, as he did. Do y'all know how hard it was for me to stay quiet and not blast him to kingdom come??:lol3:


And a special HUGE :thankyou: to TexasLady who was left with the massive clean up today!! Not any fun for her, so y'all be nice and don't make her move anything else today!! Love you!! :kuss:

I have my doubts, but I'm definitely open to the idea of a Luxembourg leg!

Though if I was planning the race, I'd go to Belgium first and avoid air flights as much as possible in Europe.

Given an approprimate guessed Pitstart time....see if the teams can get there in time? Flights, trains, start exploring that location and search for other mentions in blogs or new photo uploads.

Luxembourg, finally?  Maybe they flew from London to Luxembourg.  Luxembourg has its own major airport with flights around Europe.  British Airways, Air France (operated by CityJet), and Luxair has flights to London-Gatwick Airport and London-City Airport.  I think they flew from Gatwick to Luxembourg since Heathrow Airport doesn't have flights there.  If they went to Brighton, its directly south of Gatwick Airport.

Multidão enorme aqui no palácio! asiático 2 do leste eliminado no palácio presidencial!
(translation)
Huge crowd here at the palace! 2 east Asian eliminated at the presidential palace!


Probably excited he went somewhere and tweeted it, but I am still questioning it.

mjriches2005- can u send him/her a message, i dont have twitter.

I agree, but where is this country? - Africa, but most people would not know that. Exactly, probably excited, because something this big has never happened there.

Sao Tome & Principe is a group of islands off the coast of Africa near Equatorial Guinea.  Maybe there is some news site for that place that could be helpful.

Also the only palace I could find there is the Presidential palace.  I highly doubt that they could visit the home of that country's president.

they could have easily gotten those colors from the GMG posts or here, as stated numerous times. I would take any post going out of the way to describe what colors the teams are wearing as fake.

We all need to be specially alert. Twitters are a new phenomena, and I am sure that TPTB are interested in minimizing the impact of the real ones.

But REAL ones there are, so keep them coming. Let's just try to take the chatter about them to speculation, do not do it here, this is to record the tweets. I want this thread lean and mean!

Hi all,

I'm also a native portuguese speaker, and there's something that has not been said yet. That tweet mentions "an asian 2 from the east eliminated in the presidential palace", and that "9 teams were made in 8 teams".

Perhaps it means an asian team was eliminated in the presidential palace (of São Tomé?) and that there were 9 teams prior to this leg and now there is 8...

I'm not saying the tweet is legit, just adding some info :)

Great find! It certainly looks like the right people.

To this very untrained eye that has never been to Heathrow (or even Europe at all), the red part of the overhead monitors look like the Virgin Atlantic logo, but the picture isn't of a good enough resolution to be readable. There was speculation the teams flying Virgin Atlantic to Accra, Ghana, so that would fit if I'm right.

Yes, the lime green girls are there.  They're the ones at the counter.

The pink girls, though?  I'm pretty sure that's one of the coed teams, as a man is right next to her.  Unless that's a cameraman.

Hi people! This sounds like Papiamentu. It's not portuguese, neither spanish. And since countries that speak this language are close to Venezuela, I think this is TAR Latin America, not TAR17 (I'm brazilian, sorry for bad english :))

I have a date to add to the LHR picture.  The person who took the shot was at LHR to catch a flight that would get them home on the 29th.  They are from Singapore.  

So the day they saw teams at LHR was Friday the 28th.

This would mean that  there was no 2nd leg in England!    :ascared

The first leg probably ended on the evening of the day they landed:  Thursday the 27th.  About 12 hours for Pit Stop and make your way to LHR puts them at about 16:19 easily.

She also says that Team Green were the first at the counter and first to get their tickets of the group she saw.

Literal translations:

BernardinoCipr    "Ir ao mercado começ(sic) peixes"
Go to the market eat(?) fish

BernardinoCipr    "Equipe asiática em o que eu acredito era escuro - azul duas todas as equipes do macho: dois machos na obscuridade"
Asian team which I believe were dark(!) - Blue two all teams of male(actually, the word he used is more common to describe gender of animals), two males in obscurity(?)

"BernardinoCipr    "esverdeie e dois na laranja quatro todas as equipes da fêmea em azul verde e marrom cor-de-rosa um macho"
Greener(?) and two at orange four all the teams female(again, the animal gender) in blue green and brown pink one male.

BernardinoCipr   " masculino roxo na fêmea branca no roxo e uma equipe na mamã preta no filho preto no azul."
Purple male at the white famale(!) in the purple and one team at black mother in black son (!) at blue.  :lol:

BernardinoCipr    "pesaroso para a gramática má"
Untranslatable phrase about his Bad grammar, USING his bad grammar  :lol:


Maybe sic meanx six? I'm Spanish, and it could be a major mispelling?

sic is a literary expression used when words are displayed/printed in the exact spelling provided (by a source) even though they have grammar/syntax errors. "Ir ao mercado começ(sic) peixes" could mean "Go to the market eat fish", even though the correct word for "eat" is comer. The author here could be using (sic) to point out that he's printing the word with errors on purpose.

No not confirmed. We had a few independent sightings of Racers in Ghana including from ababuo, but no photos or concrete confirmation. Everything since the UK is still speculation at this stage, although Ghana seems likely.

Somehow I doubt TAR would revisit Stockholm again so soon. At best it's most likely a transfer.

Response from our Stockholm sighter:
Quote

hi, don't get to excited, i did not see a whole lot. i heard an American woman yelling "keep breathing"and a lot of people running, so i turned around to see a couple with backpacks, two camera men and couple of guys with carts filled with stuff and headphones running behind them. they run to the quite side of Stockholm airport. After a while they ran back, thats when i snapped a picture. i can not email it now because it is on my cell phone which does not work in Europe. From what i gather, it was a young lady and a guy team. i did not see any other teams though. from all i know, it might have been something else as i actually did not see the AR colors, but figured who else are running around with backpacks and cameras?

Have asked more Q's....

How would you know the Capri sighting is a fake.  Not all people have perfect accents, even if its a different language; so we can't just assume that the tweet is fake just because we were talking about Italy a couple days ago.  They could be telling the truth.  This false sighting thing and lying began when teams were in England.  Not all tweets and facebook posts are fake, we need to talk to these witnesses more and get their side of what they saw before we jump to accusing them of lying.

Sorry if this is duplicate info -- I have been away for a couple days and will be away again shortly, so I haven't gotten a good read-thru of the threads. But here is ababuo12's twitpic compared with another shot from Kakum National Park in Ghana. The twitpic (first pic below) is definitely from Kakum -- the question is whether ababuo12 really took it or not.

Not so fast.....

I just got a nice reply to my list of questions:

Quote
Yes I speak English! I am originally from America and have lived there for most of my life. I went for my last two years of college in Rome and have been living in Italy ever since. Me and my family used to watch Amazing Race all the time. They still do but it does not air here i do not think. The last season i saw was with Charla and Mirna on All Stars. Anyway It is hard to explain exactly where I was. I do not know if you are familiar to it but there are large walking paths overlooking the blue grotto that many people enjoy going to around lunchtime. http://www.capri.net/en/s/la-grotta-azzurra

There you can sort of see what I mean. I knew it was the amazing race because I could clearly see the amazing race flag over the entrance to the grotto where teams entered and exited. The teams came sporadically. I couldn't stay for much of it only about an hour because I had to return to work. Couldnt make out faces really but i definitely say 2 all girl teams. One male female team and I (think) an asian team but I cant be sure. The time was around 3-4:30 p.m (Capri Time). Also each team had a sound and camera man with them. Hope i helped! If you want to know anything else you can message me! Also at first i didnt think they were going to be able to go into the cave because tourists were just being brought by it and not in, but i guess that shut it down for the race?

Well, if ababuo12 did take the picture - it was taken on 2009-05-03 03:42:33-04:00

June 2, mostly around 4 o'clock. I could not see how the teams arrived because i was by the actual grotto not at the dock where their boats left from. They didnt stay in the cave for more then 10 minutes im assuming they just had to go in and get their clue. Although one team member did come out wet for each team. No im sorry i do not have any pictures but there was media around so i could check local newspapers if you would like? Nope i do not mind you sharing the info im happy to help! It was my dream to go on this show.

PS)  Someone had asked some questions about the "Amazing Race" that was being filmed while we were in Accra, Ghana.  The plane left about 9:55pm on May 31st.  They were on the same flight as us to Frankfurt, Germany.  We did not take any pictures.  There were about 10 (?) teams each with their own camera team.  They were the first group of people off of the plane when we landed in Germany...and had to clear customs the same as everyone else.  It was interesting to see how everyone got along. While we were checking in, there was one team trying to get onto the plane and it seemed they were purposely making it difficult for them.  Honestly, I felt because they were doing the show they acted like they should get preferential treatment over and above the other passengers on the plane.  To the point where some times they were rude and inconsiderate.  So all in all it was an eye opening experience to watch the progression over the night.

I just got a nice reply to my list of questions: (From the poster who said that teams were at the Blue Grotto)

Quote
Yes I speak English! I am originally from America and have lived there for most of my life. I went for my last two years of college in Rome and have been living in Italy ever since. Me and my family used to watch Amazing Race all the time. They still do but it does not air here i do not think. The last season i saw was with Charla and Mirna on All Stars. Anyway It is hard to explain exactly where I was. I do not know if you are familiar to it but there are large walking paths overlooking the blue grotto that many people enjoy going to around lunchtime. http://www.capri.net/en/s/la-grotta-azzurra

There you can sort of see what I mean. I knew it was the amazing race because I could clearly see the amazing race flag over the entrance to the grotto where teams entered and exited. The teams came sporadically. I couldn't stay for much of it only about an hour because I had to return to work. Couldnt make out faces really but i definitely say 2 all girl teams. One male female team and I (think) an asian team but I cant be sure. The time was around 3-4:30 p.m (Capri Time). Also each team had a sound and camera man with them. Hope i helped! If you want to know anything else you can message me! Also at first i didnt think they were going to be able to go into the cave because tourists were just being brought by it and not in, but i guess that shut it down for the race?


She has been looking for some further info for us, and she was able to find a report in the local newspaper 
Quote
It was in the a small newspaper called Anacapri Locale
and translated it for us as well:


Quote
The American reality show The Amazing Race filmed here in Capri on June 2, 2010. The Amazing Race has teams race around the world, the last place team get eliminated in each country. The Winner receives a million dollars. 8 teams were first seen at Monte Solaro. The teams also went to Punta Carena Villa Damecuta and the blue grotto. The teams drove in Fiat cars. The race finished at Marina Grande.


(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2017/TAR17BlueGrottocapri.jpg)

After reviewing all of the team photos, she feels that she saw Team Pink, Team Lime-green, and the Wu's. She may have seen Team Turquoise as well, but cannot be sure.

Quote
The pink team and the lime green team i definitely saw. The other two (F/F teams--peach)  i do not think so.


 Of the M/F teams:
Quote
Team Turquoise is the only one i saw i think 
Team Turquoise was not wearing the same clothes though, so not 100% but im pretty sure it was them
The boy was in a light blue bathing suit and had no shirt on as he came out wet! but i dont remember what the girl was wearing!


Of the M/M teams:
Quote
Yup! That is the asian team I saw! Kevin Wu and father

Many thanks for all the information!!

Following Milanissimo's doubts on the Italian prowess of the poster, I decided to run the article through a translator...

Quote
Questa stagione sarà monstrata negli Stati Uniti in Caduta 2010.
The season will be shown in the United States in Fall 2010.

Caduta means fall. As in to fall down. Not autumn. (Milanissimo, could you verify this?)

P.S. This may not mean anything either way, but I couldn't find anything about Elia Petrizzo or the Anacapri Locale.

Darn...I'm going to miss Capri!! :lol3:

I have to say though that we may need to put this one in the tentative file:

Kakum Ntl Park  Fake  EXIF failure 

IIRC, she never said that was her picture, or when it was taken, just that it was a picture of the park, right? So it is feasible that it was hers from last year, or a random park pic put up as an example.

Just saying that we need to be alert, but also open.

Of course, I am also going to change my name from "peach" to "capriblue". :funny:

I'd doubt the credibility of Ababuo12. Her sightings began after we've ascertained that teams were headed to Ghana. She says she's a tour guide, then says she works at the airport food court. She's fed us flights to Cairo, then switched over to Italy, neither of which jives with the Frankfurt that we now have. Too many contradictions in two days as of yet...

I still believe the Capri sighting even if everyone else doesn't.  I think there is a newspaper called the Anacapri Locale out there and its not online, also looking at the article it looks like someone used a xerox machine and copied the article from the paper to the web.  Also the caduta/fall translation issue, who ever heard of an "Autumn TV Season" I haven't; it's always called the Fall TV Season.  I think that the person who wrote the article may wanted to use the word caduto because people are more familiar with the phrase Fall TV season and not Autumn TV season.  Now lets just be patient and wait for new race sightings before someone says it fake again.

No, they used other cars; TAR9 they used Volkswagen Beetles during the 2nd leg in Brazil and they driven cars in other places like New Zealand (TAR2, 13) South Africa (1, 7) Guam (TAR11) Puerto Rico (TAR7) even if they're not Mercedes and TAR8 they driven Yukons as well.

Hi all! I've been lurking since S10 & decided to join in on the fun.

For what it's worth, I think the Capri newspaper copy is a fake. I used to be a graphic designer for a short period of time, but it looks like the "newspaper" is actually just a normal print out which was then scanned. Notice the tell tale printer marks on some of the sentences (e.g. the last line of 2nd paragraph). Also, I believe the text in newspapers around the world are set the same way, what we call "justified alignment", to make the text align with both the left and right margins so the sides are even (am I making sense? Sorry English is not my mother tongue). It is to make the newspaper easy to read & to save space. The typesetting in the so-called Anacapri Locale was too sloppy, even for a small town publication. Anacapri is a small town near Capri, btw.
I'm also suspicious on the type of paper used, but then again this one is somewhat debatable.

Regarding "autumn" or "fall" 2010, I think we have to ask an Italian about the term they use to describe the season, but as far as I know only the US uses the term "fall" for that particular season. So it might be an American writing in English what he/she wanted to say then had the text translated to Italian without realising Italy doesn't translate it as such.

Anyway, happy hunting. Let me know if they're heading to SEA, I'll keep a lookout.

here's my 2 cents

i've taken Italian (very recently actually), and have asked about this situation too

i was told that Autunno translates into both Autumn and Fall (season)

its the only translation for the season, no if's and's or but's

just a rookie mistake while using google translate

also, i say Stockholm = transit point

and we may see Latvia, and maybe even Russia

back into the shadows i go...

Thank you milanissimo...Yes. we know. Capri is no more.

Moving on to Stockholm--St Peterburg!!

Have written the source so y'all be nice.

So far he has also said:

Quote
it seems our flight was a part of "The Amazing Race." I did ask one of the cameramen (there was one per every team of two - there was a father/daughter, boyfriends/girlfriends, and I'm not sure who else) what show it was, but he was all mysterious.


This ties in very well with our incoming to Stockholm sighting on June 1:

Response from our Stockholm sighter:
Quote

hi, don't get to excited, i did not see a whole lot. i heard an American woman yelling "keep breathing"and a lot of people running, so i turned around to see a couple with backpacks, two camera men and couple of guys with carts filled with stuff and headphones running behind them. they run to the quite side of Stockholm airport. After a while they ran back, thats when i snapped a picture. i can not email it now because it is on my cell phone which does not work in Europe. From what i gather, it was a young lady and a guy team. i did not see any other teams though. from all i know, it might have been something else as i actually did not see the AR colors, but figured who else are running around with backpacks and cameras?

And this is a work in progress...we have two sightings in Stockholm airport now that nicely bookmark arrival and departure if they are correct. AND we have Phil in a place where he can spend some time on the Internet, suggesting an extended Pitstop. Our work is just beginning.

So let's go to speculation with further discussion, and maybe some of you all can start trying to research Stockholm photos, blogs etc for us?? :yess:

Just heard back from our person on the flight to St Petersburg with teams:

He says:

Quote
I am a very big fan of the show. What I can tell you is that they were on my flight to St. Petersburg. When I started to wonder about them at Arlanda airport, I approached one of the cameramen to ask what show it was. He was very vague and mysterious. He just said it was a travel show that he wasn't sure would make it on the air, implying it was a new show. I just left it at that.

There was obviously a cameraman for each team. One team of two girls was filmed close to where I was sitting. The cameraman asked them to comment on where they were going, their plan (strategy) once the arrived.

I know there was one father/daughter team, and several M/F and F/F teams. I don't know the makeup or number of teams, but there were likely 8-10 at this point.

I stood behind the father/daughter team at passport check upon arrival in St. Petersburg. The girl asked if I had a cell to borrow. I didn't. She arranged a ride on the phone, obviously having a number previously arranged. She was using her charm (attractive blonde), and her father was obviously fine with this.

I found it interesting watching the dynamic between the teams and their cameramen. In the Stockholm airport, I noticed the participants would get approval from their cameraman to leave the gate area. It seemed like approval ("we're going over there, is that alright"), though it may have just been more communication.

I am sending him some photos for comparison, hopefully he will be able to help?

It's an Indonesian in which that twitter account user lives in Indonesia and I do believe that he's talking about The Amazing Race Asia 4 and the race has just started and probably the 1st leg for that reality show is somewhere in his country.  Just a speculation. :duno:

Yep, they're Indonesians. It's got nothing to do with any filming, though. I think they're doing a Race-like event or rewatching the seasons together (more likely).

Hmm ... no male/male teams sighted?  Does that mean all of the male/male teams have been Philiminated?  That would be good -- we might have a female/female team win if there's at least two of them still around!

This info comes to us from the person who saw teams at Arlanda airport during her long layover on 6-1-10.

She initially sent this:
Quote
hi, don't get to excited, i did not see a whole lot. i heard an American woman yelling "keep breathing"and a lot of people running, so i turned around to see a couple with backpacks, two camera men and couple of guys with carts filled with stuff and headphones running behind them. they run to the quite side of Stockholm airport. After a while they ran back, thats when i snapped a picture. i can not email it now because it is on my cell phone which does not work in Europe. From what i gather, it was a young lady and a guy team. i did not see any other teams though. from all i know, it might have been something else as i actually did not see the AR colors, but figured who else are running around with backpacks and cameras?


And then today was able to send this photo as well as an update:
Quote
Here is the picture. they were running to the end of F terminal and back. there were no flights leaving from the F terminal. so running to it did not seam very reasonable at all. then they ran back from the
end of the terminal. i dont know where they ended up or where theywere going. this is all i have.

She was surprised to hear that she has captured not one but two teams!!  :hearts:

So we clearly have Jonathan and Connor...and a F/F team...perhaps the Lime Greens??


Please take any questions about the teams seen or discussion to SPECULATION please.

Also, some further information from the person who was on the flight Arlanda>>St Petersburg on June 5 with teams.

The flight is confirmed as SK 732 arr 133PM.

He said previously:
Quote
I stood behind the father/daughter team at passport check upon arrival in St. Petersburg. The girl asked if I had a cell to borrow. I didn't. She arranged a ride on the phone, obviously having a number previously arranged.

And he has looked over photos, and says:

Quote
I did see Kev Jumba and his dad. It was Miss Kentucky (Team Yellow) that asked to borrow my cell. She got one from Aksel Kolstad, a Norwegian concert pianist/comedian who was also on the flight.

And at the moment, that is all the info available.

I wouldn't rule it completely out being TAR yet. Just for example there is a flight leaving St Petersburg at 7:30 on Jun 7 (a couple of hours after teams were spotted at the airport) to Paris which connects with a flight to Seoul landing at around 7am local time on Jun 8, so it is logistically possible.

This is all true. I'm not saying they have gone there, but just pointing out that it is technically possible.

I had reason to believe that the next leg after St Petersburg would quite possibly involve a "long haul flight", and have been researching for the past few hours a number of various possibilities from all the major European hubs. This was just one of them.

That was part of my reasoning. They have too many legs left to be in Korea already unless we have several legs coming up in Asia or a stop or two in the Pacific Islands. I'll agree that it is logistically possible to be TAR.

A little research in Wikipedia shows Dongducheon to be a relatively new city with not much historical impact that's mainly known for having several US military bases nearby, a maple festival and one of the biggest rock festivals in South Korea. Unless TAR has something going with the US Army, I can't see much reason to go there. They've already done the trip to the North Korean border in an earlier season. However, I do recall finding a story around last Christmas during the TAR 16 taping from a US military paper (the name escapes me) that talked about things to look for in 2010. It hinted (among many other things) that US Marines would appear on TAR during 2010. Maybe this is related to that. 

It would interesting to see information about the Facebooker. Dongducheon has 10 high schools, 15 middle schools and 38 elementary schools. Also one university. If the guy posting it is young, it could easily be some local school version of TAR.

It looks like he is a married American who only arrives in ROK a few days ago. Unless guacamole has been in contact with the poster, I believe he is assuming the sighting might have been in Dongducheon from an earlier reference to it in a status posted 18 hours ago.

Just a reminder that TAR 4 went to South Korea, and one task took teams extremely close to the Korean DMZ.

I could see a flight from St, Petersburg to Seoul and then have the Race head south towards Oceania and still have room for a jaunt across the south Pacific to Latin America.

I am pretty sure they could very well be in Korea although this may be pure speculation. Remembered how half of us predicted them to start near Korea for TAR 17?

This is completely speculation, but the only country i could foresee TAR 17 definitely visiting after Korea would be The Phillippines. And it is possible for TAR 17 to travel to Korea if they do 1 leg in Korea, 2 legs in Phillipines, 2 legs in another country further down Southeast Asia (Indonesia, anyone?).. and if they have time, they can even cross continent to Australia and New Zealand. Seems like a pretty good route, to have Asia stuck in the middle of the season instead of the start and the beginning like what we have for the past many seasons.

Hey, i haven't been in contact with the poster, but I sent the link to peach, and decided to leave to the experts.

What I was thinking is that it is not a coincidence that we have 3 races going on all at once. I mean think about it, TAR goes to Asia while TARA is going on, and then it could cross to Latin America while TARLA is going on. Besides apparently TARLA started in Mexico and it's making its way down. So it could be very easy to confuse the races with each other in both cases. Just my two cents.

Okay...if TARA 4 has not yet started (possibly)...then this sighting would have to be TAR 17.

I like the idea of this being the Marine involvement! :hearts:

So apprently they may be here?

I wouldn't worry about TARLA, they can't go out of North-Central-South America (visa issues), so they can be discarded from any other continent sighting.

The story that mentions the possible Marines involvement with TAR in 2010 is still available. It's mentioned at the very end of the story.

http://www.marinecorpstimes.com/news/2010/01/marines_ontap_010110w/ (http://www.marinecorpstimes.com/news/2010/01/marines_ontap_010110w/)

However, after doing further research, I find that while the US has 28,500 soldiers stationed in South Korea, less than 250 are Marines. They are stationed at Camp Mujuk which is at Pohang on the east coast of South Korea and not particularly near Dongducheon. I wouldn't completely rule out TAR doing something with Marines in South Korea as they apparently fly Marines in periodically for exercises, but involvement with the US Army or US Air Force seems much more likely since they have about 28,000 of the 28,500 troops stationed there. This might be one of those cases where we won't have any evidence until the weekly previews get released by CBS.

The article on the link says "possible Marine appearences"  there is a chance that it may not happen due to the article was out in January and changes can occur between when it was publish til now.  Keep reading military news articles online or lookup U.S. military bases news and see what is going on.

Looks like Bahasa Melayu... I'll ask my friend for help, but in the meantime:
wawancara = interview
peserta = participant
selama 5 menit = for 5 minutes
lg = lagi? = more
lumayan = more than enough
wajah = face
msk = masuk? = enter
acara = programme
negara paman sam = Uncle Sam's country = USA

TAR3/TAR16 (Singapore)
TAR13/TAR15 (Cambodia)

TAR3/TAR14 (Switzerland)
TAR5/TAR15 (United Arab Emirates)

The guy in Oman just got back to me, he said he was talking to the turquoise team. He spotted a girl-girl team, but he wasn't sure whether it was the blue or the pink team, since they were far away.
He bumped into them 2 days ago, at nighttime.
Chad & Stephanie asked about the earliest flight to Bangladesh. They told him they're in a race & would lose if they can't get anything within 8 hours.
Anything else I should ask him about?

Never know.  The girls could've been the green ones.

So Chad & Stephanie are still in.  Officially, she lasted longer than the last Stephanie.  Points for anyone who remembers who that was.

The girls in green are both blonde. He said he saw a girl-girl team, one dark haired, the other a blonde.
Oh.  Definitely either blue or pink, then.

Just hoping the green ones are still around, I guess.

Oh!  Ask if the dark-haired girl had short or long hair.  Short means it's the pink girls.  Long means it's the blue girls.

I saw that and figured it was something local in Melbourne. We have more or less current TARA sightings in Penang and Borneo, so I doubt it's TARA. I didn't think it was TAR, but after thinking it over, if they left Bangladesh on the 9th (as the timeline suggests), it's possible they could have been in Melbourne on the 10th (or would it be the 11th already in Australia?).

Doesn't TAR end up at an amusement park at some point every season?  :fun

It's 5:35pm on the 11th in Melbourne.  :tup:

The racers would be having a miserable time if it is them, it's been cold and miserable all day.  :lol:

ETA: But I doubt it's them, the logistics of it all doesn't really add up. Bangladesh > Melbourne > Seoul just seems to far. Melbourne seems like too much of a divergence from what we know about the route.

EDIT: I forgot to include the actual tweet! However, i found someone who could translate it, and it wasn't a spoiler.  :(

There are no direct flight to Dhaka on June 8, but a number of 1 stop flights with Emirates, Gulfair, Qatar, Oman and JetAirways

The flight takes a minimum of 7 to 8 hrs.
[/quote]

the guy just got back to me again, he talked to chad & stephanie at roughly 5.30 pm Oman time on June 8. C & S ended up taking the JetAir flight via Mumbai, the other girl-girl team took the qatar airways flight via doha.

JetAir via Mumbai seems to be
9W 539 Dep 12:35 (jun9) Arr 04:35am (jun9) 2hr30 flight time and
9W 276 Dep 9:30am (jun9) Arr 1:30pm (jun9) 3 hr3 flight time (arrive 63 min late)

Qatar via Doha
QR 169 Dep 11:36pm (jun8) Arr 11:48pm (jun8) 1hr12 flight time

earlier Qatar flight on jun8 is at 10am which doesn't fit  and I can only find a 9pm departure the next day from Doha onwards...
QR 344 Dep 9:16pm (jun9) Arr 5:19am (jun10) 5hr04 flight time

so the F/F flight looks like a bad mistake, or wrong information at the moment.   :( Will keep looking for other flights that would fit for them.

Flying via Doha, it seems it may be possible to land late afternoon in Dhaka on Jun9 if there is a second stopover via Bahrain or Dubai, but that is with Gulf Air or Emirates as far as I can see. Not sure if they code share with Qatar at all, but it seems very messy and unlikely. :duno:

Unless these teams were unexpectedly running well behind the other teams for some reason, because there are better connections earlier in the day, and with flights like this, it would be almost an 100% elimination... One would assume that production would usually reserve a few seats on various flights if it was believed that there could be difficulties procuring flights... :duno:

Saw this on FB an hour ago:

is one of the paramedics and PA member of this upcoming famous reality TV show that will be held in Albay "___THE AMAZING RACE___"

The person that posted that is in the Philippines.  Not sure if it's TARA4 or TAR17, if anything.

:colors :colors:

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, Can Anyone Check the Camarines Sur Wakeboarding site, TAR maybe there!

PM me if you need my help........... ;)


It's probably way too late, but I found the Camarines Sur Wakeboarding site at http://www.cwcwake.com/ (http://www.cwcwake.com/). I didn't see anything to suggest TAR 17 or TARA 4 was there, but they don't seem to have a webcam or anything like that.

I'm not quite sure if this is anything or not, but since I have two sources that say the same thing I decided to post it here.

Found a facebook post in Chinese from 10 minutes or so ago:

Amazing Race@HKG Airport~ 好在參賽者一出閘就衝左去巴士站, 無走上黎info搵我問路o者~~

which google translates to

Amazing Race @ HKG Airport ~ Fortunately participants a red gate on the left to the bus stop, no info onto Lebanon who want me to ask for o ~ ~

then I found 2 twitter messages in English from about the same time:

Reached HK! :D

And I see amazing race groups here! :D haha

I don't get the Lebanon reference - could be a mistranslation? As for TAR or TARA being at Hong Kong airport, could they be making a stop there to catch a flight to the next destination?

This is Cantonese dialect .
Translation: Participants run to  bus stop when they pass the custom inspection
, no one comes to me to ask for help.

They run out to the bus stop...look like they will have a leg in Hong Kong...or take boat to Macau...
But I doubt why they took bus instead of taxi,maybe they should travel to some place far away?

I think they will depart Hong Kong to Seoul by
 Jun14 00:25  KE 608  Seoul/ICN T1 G     Korean Air
    
                          DL 7916                         Delta Air Lines
or
 Jun14 00:30  OZ 724  Seoul/ICN T1 J     Asiana Airlines
    
                          UA 1082                         United Airlines

then they will arrive Soul about 5:00 am on Jun 14 to begin their Seoul leg.

They may start this leg about 18:00 pm on Jun13 at Hong Kong like last season they fly from Singapore to Shanghai.

The 9:30am flight I posted in Speculation would get them there by 1:45 today (Jun13), otherwise there was a flight in the middle of last night from Macau that would have got them there first thing this morning (6:30am -ish) - That is why I wanted to find out which ferry they were going to from the earlier tweet.

I think they will depart Hong Kong to Seoul by
 Jun14 00:25  KE 608  Seoul/ICN T1 G     Korean Air
    
                          DL 7916                         Delta Air Lines
or
 Jun14 00:30  OZ 724  Seoul/ICN T1 J     Asiana Airlines
    
                          UA 1082                         United Airlines

then they will arrive Soul about 5:00 am on Jun 14 to begin their Seoul leg.

They may start this leg about 18:00 pm on Jun13 at Hong Kong like last season they fly from Singapore to Shanghai.
 


Since they didn't come to Seoul today,maybe  I was  right?

Likely to be TARA.  My fren mentioned that he bumped into Allan Wu when checking in luggage on the way back to SG fr KK.  He only saw Allan and none of the teams though.  And yes, he was on the same flight as Allan.

Team PURPLE... He has a Blue pack as well

Team Green have matching grey packs

My take is we have Team Blue on the left, team Pink in the middle, and after a second look Team Turquoise (Chad and Stephanie) on the upper right, Team Purple!!!

Saw this on twitter
I just saw the amazing race people
about 2 hours ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®

Not sure if this is for TAR or TARA, though.

Neither - its for a local race in Toronto.

Here are some other non-TAR, non-TARA tweets - they are not for our race so no need to post them here.

I'm the guy who took the video in Gloucester and yes I knew before I said teh words great Race that the Name was Amazing Race I just happened to mess up.

Any way here are the latest pics-

CBS Amazing Race Orange and Pink Team Aboard Gloucester’s Lady J Lobster Boat-

http://goodmorninggloucester.wordpress.com/2010/05/27/cbs-amazing-race-orange-and-pink-team-aboard-gloucesters-lady-j-lobster-boat/ (http://goodmorninggloucester.wordpress.com/2010/05/27/cbs-amazing-race-orange-and-pink-team-aboard-gloucesters-lady-j-lobster-boat/)

Many more pics to come

Hope you enjoy!


I know I am about 18 days behind reading the AR17 threads, but the boat I saw in the 7 minute 52 second Gloucester ship parade was clearly named "Lady S". The commentator with the Boston accent (I guess it's Capt. Joe) just saw it wrong. This is inconsequential, but it was not the "lady J." I want to be among those commending Capt. Joe for that super video.

Which according to Google Translate, this translates to:

The poster is from Iceland, but is visiting South Korea.  He has a photo album on his FB of his trip, but I can't tell if he took pictures of the TAR racers.

His friend then commented "hefdu endad i pyongyang an okkar"

which I believe means "they would have otherwise have ended up in Pyongyang" (Nth Korea)


(and no team pics atm, the last photos he uploaded were korea football shirt ones from yesterday)

And speaking of Pyongyang in North Korea, here's a blog site about a Californian woman who went to that country: http://www.lindsayfincher.com/tag/north-korea (http://www.lindsayfincher.com/tag/north-korea)

No. The post was on FB, and it was Pyongyang the person was referring to. I believe the original reference was said more in the meaning that the team were very lost, rather than suggesting that the subway line (or the teams) actually went to North Korea.

Since I seem to be getting several PM's a day from people thinking I can tell them "you'll tell ME, right??" more about the race or finale :groan: , I am going to say this ONCE MORE:

I believe the race ended on Tuesday June 15 in the LA vicinity. We have production definitively arriving at LAX that morning, we have twitters, we have plenty of evidence to say the race ended then.

The team is still working hard on this...it is possible we might know more about the location later, but at the moment? No.

This comment was posted at 17.55 on the first on June 2010. The timing fits perfectly into the current time line.

Upon seeing the team reveal, I have to wonder how much of joeyhort's "account" of leg one events was a hoax and how much was real.  Especially because of the bolded part below in regards to the alleged Roadblock on that leg.

I beleive it had something to do with a bell because whenever the bell would chime a team member would come running out. The first two teams out were a f/f pink team and and a m/m orange team were out first and one of the guys said "that was the most challenging thing i have ever had to do in my life, and i went to med school".
I wonder about this mainly because we do have a med school student on this season: Tony (of Ron & Tony).

I just wanted to say that in looking at the teams photos and backpacks and more closely, I believe the team photographed in Sweden with Connor and Jonathon are Nick and Vicki and that maybe they are the team who finish 4th this season after all. The girl we thought was Katie looks like Vicki with her backpack, and I just thought the person running on the other side has a black cap on like Nick (one of those skaterish type hats!)

Maybe they are going further than we thought!

A small update on Cheung Chau:

I had my doubts about Cheung Po Tsai Cave in the beginning; it's a pretty long run with a backpack from the ferry terminal (2km, with a stretch over steep inclines), and cameras couldn't possibly fit into the crevices to get into the hole. But I managed to talk to some eyewitnesses today, and yes, it is possible to confirm Cheung Po Tsai Cave as one of our Cheung Chau destinations!

The eyewitness accounts are similar to those from Thailand and China from the past few seasons. Huge crowd of production with about 20 people; they bought three or four boxes of drinks from local grocery stores. It was a pretty big crowd and it was a Saturday in the start of the school holidays (when throngs of visitors descend upon Cheung Chau), so it was difficult to discern between individual teams.

One interesting thing of note: while running to Cheung Po Tsai Cave, a man twisted his ankle and had serious problems; an ambulance was called and there was a bit of a delay. It's unclear whether this was a member of the crew or a racer. I checked out the hospital on the island but didn't come up with anything.

The photos of the teams were taken on the praya outside Wai Yan Memorial College, with teams running west towards the cave. From what I've heard teams didn't actually enter the cave. Didn't find anything suggesting they went anywhere else on the island, although it would be pretty lame to just go to Cheung Chau for a clue box outside the cave.

I am confused here!  If teams left Seoul on the 15th and arrived in Los Angeles on the same day, wouldn't Phil have left the pitstop before the teams on a earlier flight.  Also can anyone show me the posts about the teams racing in Los Angeles that same day.    :groan: :duno:

I know, all I've heard was that the crew were seen at LAX and Phil was there,  but the sighting of the final two teams, they could have been decoys while the real final 3 were still in Korea, unless the there is a Final 2 with the third place team that is way behind like Season 1 (Team Guido) and Season 4 (the friends) who didn't make it to the finish line.  I believe Los Angeles is not our final destination.

Please keep in mind that teams cross over the International Date Line, and when going from west to east, you lose a day on the calendar. In other words, by the time teams arrive in the U.S., the calendar may say its the same day, but it's actually the following day by then in Asia.

the schnauzers,  I suspect we could be having a semantic difference, but I find that your conclusion is correct, but your first statement is the reverse of my reality of crossing the International Date Line. It is when going east to west that you lose a day (meaning add one to the date) on the calendar. When going west to east, you gain a day (meaning subtract one from the date). Given the departure times and length of most trans Pacific nonstop flights, this means that a traveler leaves east Asia sometime on a given date and will arrive in the U.S. on the morning of the same date.

We all know that Nick can do "distinctive" hair. However, there was a cameraman seen in Seoul who had dreads...so remain unconvinced about that part. :lol:


I think this sighting is also possible, the Chad/Steph ID was made after reviewing our team photos.

On the flight with the last two remaining teams of the future season of The Amazing Race from Seoul to LA. Such a rush.
12:31 PM Jun 15th via txt


There are a few inconsistencies which I think/hope can be mostly explained by the multiple legs she flew that day...

Quote
Anyway, all I know is that there were three teams: two girls (blonde and brunette), two girls (both blonde, I think), and a couple (lots of tattoos, both brunette). They got off Korean Air flight 740 when I updated on twitter. We noticed the couple were just standing around baggage claim after the flight and waiting around with Phil and the crew. Could they just be a decoy team? They didn't race like the others did.


Breaking this down based on further conversations:
two girls (blonde and brunette)  :yes:
two girls (both blonde, I think) +/-
couple (lots of tattoos, both brunette) :yes:
They got off Korean Air flight 740>>this is incorrect, it is a flight # from HK to Seoul...she has not been able to recall what flight # she took Seoul to LA. Arrival time is consistent with KE 1, arr Scheduled:   8:40 AM - Tue Jun 15, 2010>  Actual:   8:33 AM - Tue Jun 15, 2010

when I updated on twitter>>she was in baggage claim at LAX, tweet time ~ 1231 June 15 (presumed EST)

This description suggests to me that Nick and Vicki are most likely indeed our 4th place decoy team. Racing teams don't go to baggage claim or hang with production.

Feel free to dissect this! I am still trying, but further details are not so easy to obtain.  :lol:

There isn't a team left that has 2 blonde women left - unless of course, either Claire or Kat gets their hair bleached blonde somewhere while they are racing.
It wouldn't be the first time that a detour has dramatically changed the appearance of a racer - like getting their head shaved.
I guess the other option is that Thomas has a *** change...

Well, this definitely confirms (more or less) that Brook & Claire and Nat & Kat are in the F3.  Jill & Thomas are either ahead of, behind, or with them but went unseen.  I hope it's that second one because of what it'd more or less guarantee. :)

I think there may be some confusion here? As said, the Logan pic was to confirm the backpacks of the HK pic.

And I think that HK may have four teams (not five) left and be a NEL..cannot confirm this but it follows the usual.

Korea has four teams and is an elimination.

But how do you know that this will occur? Based on what has already occured this season, there will not be a NEL in Leg 10 (HK). There have been NEL's in Leg 3 and Leg 6 already, creating an unusual pattern. The writers are trying to make this season less predictable.

Post by: guacamole300 on November 02, 2010, 03:18:03 PM
I have to agree... think about it. Even with last season, the NELs were F8, F6, F4. This season when the first NEL was F9 I thought, maybe they're gonna make it F9, F7, F5 this season. When we learned about two St. Petersburg my suspicions grew, and voila, we had a F7 NEL... so I'm leaning towards a F5 NEL with both HK and SK being elimination legs.

Keep a watch on here this month, TAR18 will start before TAR17 finishes airing. Join in the hunt for info.

Okay Houston...we have a problem.

I have been attempting to follow up with all our remaining spoiler sources.

The sighting of Chad/Stephanie in Oman (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,21997.msg527384.html#msg527384) can no longer be considered valid.

I resent the source some photos (at the time of the first contact we had only airport photos for comparison).

HE HAS KINDLY JUST REPLIED THAT HE MET JILL AND THOMAS.

This puts Chad and Stephanie back in the "not seen after" file and puts them AT RISK FOR ELIMINATION THIS WEEK BASED ON SIGHTINGS.

Sorry for any confusion...this does happen, sources do their best based on the info we have at the time, just glad we can reevaluate.

According to an ex-girlfriend of a friend of a friend's cousin, they ended in Santa Barbara, California.

I copied this over from the TAR 17 speculation thread though I'm not sure it qualifies as a real live sighting. Peach, move it if you think it needs to be elsewhere.

I found this intriguing little message on Suite101.com from last July at http://www.suite101.com/content/amazing-race-17-gets-started-in-gloucester-boston-massachusetts-a241709 (http://www.suite101.com/content/amazing-race-17-gets-started-in-gloucester-boston-massachusetts-a241709).

does any one know if TAR 18 is filming?
I saw some people running in Santa Barbara Califonia and clearly saw one gilr holding the TAR clue.
then I follow them to a alice keck park in Santa Barbara and there was huge bolling pins and so I'm just wondering


Unfortunately, the person is listed as "guest" so we won't be able to follow up on it. Steven Fife at the Suite101.com web site politely said it was probably a local race. He is quite possibly right since July is not when TAR 17 (or 18) was run, however if the guest was mentioning something that was seen a month earlier in June, then this report gets much more interesting. Given that 5 of the last 6 participants are "gilrs" that is in the report's favor. 

Here are a couple of links to Alice Keck park:
http://www.santabarbara.com/activities/parks/alicekeck/ (http://www.santabarbara.com/activities/parks/alicekeck/)
http://www.rth.org/sb/ (http://www.rth.org/sb/)

It does look like a place that could be used for a detour/roadblock. Lots of trees and trails for a small city block sized park that might briefly make it hard to find the detour/roadblock. Huge bowling pins might be unlikely for a local TAR knock off race. You can reserve the park of events/weddings at http://www.santabarbaraca.gov/eRecreation/Facilities/FacilitiesDetail.asp?FacilityId=16 (http://www.santabarbaraca.gov/eRecreation/Facilities/FacilitiesDetail.asp?FacilityId=16). It has a calendar but doesn't allow you to go back into the past.

I'd rate this as a low probability of being the real TAR, but thus far, it's the only possible indication of the finish line location I've seen.
