Title: Amazing Race 18 LIVE Sightings! Tweets Go here please! *read post 1*
Post by: georgiapeach on November 17, 2010, 10:07:51 PM
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 posting a FB post, please quote the post, include the time, but do NOT post the poster's name. Please do send me the link and name though so we can keep a full list for the Summary thread.

If you are concerned that any info gained from any sighting, FB post or tweet may be private or confidential or just "too much too soon", feel free to PM 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,23692.0.html) and leave the Twitter zone free for incoming info! :ty3:

If you have a spoiler and prefer to share it privately, you can email me, my email is in my profile. Your confidentiality will be respected. You can also PM once you have a minimum of 5 posts here.

From now thru the next couple of days would be a very good time for our RFF team to begin watching for sightings.  :lol:

Please familiarize yourself with the guidelines above.

No chatter or speculation here please. LIVE sightings ONLY. :tup:

The threads for locations, contestants and speculation will all be found here once we are underway:

Thanks everyone!  :hearts:

Twitter post: Amazing Race All Stars noon LAX shooting ni kat. Tatau where diorg want pegi. 3min ago

"tgh" = contraction of "tengah", "in the process of"
"kat" = mangle of "at"
"tatau" = contraction of "tidak tahu", "don't know"
"mana" = "where"
"diorg" = mangle of "they all"
"nak" = "want"
"pegi" = mangle of "pergi", "to go"
Not sure what "ni" means.

"Amazing Race All Stars tgh shooting kat LAX ni." = "Amazing Race All Stars is filming at LAX right now."
"Tatau mana diorg nak pegi." = "I don't know where they are going."

Please take note of the translation error above by Google Translate. "tgh" ("tengah") was translated as "noon" ("tengah hari"), but it should really be "in the process of", which means an evening start.

Here are the flights on Qantas leaving tonight (within the next 40 minutes). NOTE: The first time is the scheduled time, the second is the actual time.

(http://i51.[banned image hosting site].com/fw5egn.png)

The estimated arrival time of the Sydney flight above is 9:01 AM (Sunday at 2 PM in LA, 5 PM on the east coast US).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Below are flights that left for Sydney during the 10 PM PST hour (possible that there was an earlier flight for some teams on a different airline). There are no other flights out of LA to Sydney tonight (so the one above is the last one).

(http://i51.[banned image hosting site].com/11v2sn9.png)

UA 839 is estimated to arrive at 8:33 AM (Sunday at 1:33 PM in LA, 4:33 PM on the east coast US).
QF 12 is estimated to arrive at 8:00 AM (Sunday at 1:00 PM in LA, 4:00 PM on the east coast US).
DF 17 is estimated to arrive at 9:01 AM (Sunday at 2:01 PM in LA, 5:01 PM on the east coast US).

This could be huge problem.
I see that QF12 was diverted to Honolulu and there is now no arrival time in Sydney for the flight.
If its a mechanical issue they may have to wait for a new plane. Teams on this flight could be days behind!

We have not yet 100% confirmed them as racers, although it looks likely. MANY of the confirmed teams tweeted this week, suggesting they were allowed/encouaged to do so.

More on this can be discussed in SPEC if we need to!

I have QF108 to arrive around 1000. They are lucky due to all the issues with Qantas lately. All the A380 planes in LA are grounded meaning less seat capacity.

Quickest way from Circular Quay to Lavender Bay on public transport seems to be by ferry to Milsons Pt.
Teams can easily jog over to the opposite side of the Harbour Bridge.

Keep an eye on the webcams. Huge groups with camera-people will be easy to spot.

I remember the first season, or maybe it was the second, where the contestants landed in Sydney and raced around Circular Quay. One team while standing at the Opera House took a Taxi to Circular Quay (mispronounced) even though they could’ve walked there faster.
I hope they do better this time.

Hello :) i'm new here, but i've been a silent reader for a long time :D

anyways, i found this on facebook

Home from LA! Really dramatic flight! Medical emergency required landing mid way in Honolulu after dumping 30,000 pounds of fuel. Then storms near Fiji diverted us another 2 hours! Got to Sydney and no gate allocated! 8 teams of the "Amazing Race" were on my flight - two sitting next to me - drew maps and helped with their clues for Sydney! What a flight!

More from source from the plane:

Well - I did hear that 3 teams were put on the later flight - but there was a lot of whining because our flight was so delayed that the last three teams would have arrived in SYdney WELL before the first 8!

The clue was "Southern Swan on the Rocks" whcih as far as I could tell as a Sydney sider - this is a Tall Ship (the name I couldnt remember - but they all seemed to think it was a ship) that docks at the Harbour and is a floating restaurant "at the Rocks" which is where the First Fleet landed in Australia! Very historic site and VERY BEAUTIFUL and they had to take a TRAIN to CIRCULAR QUAY then RUN to the SHIP. Will go past the MOST beautiful of all Sydney Landmarks.

All I know is that my friend was near the Australian National Maritime Museum near Cockle Bay and she is currently driving to Town Hall Square which is not that far away, which is logical as teams still travelled on foot after visiting the bridge. Traffic is a nightmare there right now but my friend is doing their best to try and get parked. :)

And on one side of the bridge is Darling Drive, on the other is the Western Distributor Highway, but the bridge has a walkway on that side. It isn't a drive across bridge I believe the Maritime Museum is actually right next to the bridge, and the bridge links onto Captain Cook Cruises...see Google Maps

Yep that is at the anchor right next to Town Hall. Corner of Bathurst and George Streets.

Eyewitness account: Saw teams 'sitting around drinking energy drinks' at Town Hall in the afternoon. They were also filming the teams 'running to a clue-box and ripping a clue a envelope and then sitting down again'

I doubt it, I got told it's a charter flight to "the outback". New South Wales and Queensland as more well know as Outback territory, not Melbourne. If it is Melboune, I'd guess a connecting flight possibly to South Australia

Of course, it could be a charter to somewhere like Coober Pedy or Broken Hill, then on to Melbourne.

If there is a charter to nowheresville... there's gotta be a flight back to an international port.  While Australia has many, it is unlikely they would head out of Brisbane (that'd be either north to somewhere like Japan, or back to the US or NZ), Darwin (too few flights, really, but some to Singapore), or Adelaide.

Perth and Melbourne would seem logical departure points.  Melbourne has the more frequent international timetable to more locations.

HI ALL..........THIS IS NOT BUSHPIG..........THIS IS MICHELLE FROM SYDNEY (This site hasn't sent me a confirmation email to sign up and I have to tell you some stuff NOW, so I am using Bushpig's account)
 :yess:
So I was the one in Sydney who took 2 of the photos above.....sitting along from the teams, and then across from them in Town Hall Square.

They all looked totally buggered and they were talking about having a shower.
When I first got there I asked one of the production crew if she was waiting for the race teams...she paused and said "I am filming for a travel show". I then turned around and saw the teams and couldn't believe my eyes!   :jumpy:
I had followed them from the bridge, where I talked to a security guard who had talked to the teams. But I wasn't going to give up, since I had not seen any teams. So I worked out the clue myself and then went to Sydney town hall where they were due next.
I have never seen so many backpacks in my life, as well as water bottled and power drinks.
The sound and camera teams were all together sitting/lying on the ground.
The teams were standing around or sitting chatting to each other.
I took some photos discreetly, then went up to Vyxsin and Margie (mum of deaf Luke) and told them that I hoped they did really well.

Then I went over to the Globetrotters and one half of the brothers team and asked if they were allowed to have a pic with me. They um'ed and ah'ed and then BIG EASY said "Oh, I'll take a photo". So I posed with Flight time and then they asked me about Rex airlines.
Rex airlines is a regional airline. They wanted to know if they had to go to the domestic or international airport. They were VERY interested in my iphone!!
Then my daughter needed food (I had already given her lollies), so I had to go. :( I could have sat there all night.
Pleased to supply the pics. :)

I also saw the asian dad and daughter, mallory and dad, the brothers, the really tall older white haired guy from one team (can't remember his name). The cowboys had not arrived before I left.

Teams from [The Amazing Race 18] have been spotted at Oceanworld in Sydney, Australia,[1] and at numerous other locations around the city of Sydney during Monday November 22, 2010. Teams at Sydney Town Hall were overheard speaking of allocated travel times to "the Outback" on Tuesday November 23.

Hi everyone!

So I managed to track down where the teams were today using updated posts from this topic and I would like to share some pictures of them (though the quality is abit dodge sorry) to say thank you! I tried to get a picture with Gary and Mallory (since they're my favourite team <3) but they said they couldn't so I only got ones that I took discreetly =( Also, I talked to Ron and Christina who were both extremely nice and they were asking for advice on how to get to the airport and what terminal the REX regional airline was at - I was only too glad to help =P

I happened to sneak a peak into one of those metal dishes. It appeared to be a compass rose, with at least 8 points. Not sure why they are still carrying them, I assumed it had something to do with the yachting task.

I'm guessing the $$ Coutzy spent traveling to Sydney was well worth it!  What an experience.  I'd love to hear Coutzy's thoughts on the day.  Being a pseudo racer for the benefit of mankind (okay, not mankind but it sounded good!)

used Twitter Search and typed in "Amazing Race" and found this along the tweets.

(translated) Amazing Race All Stars noon LAX shooting ni kat. Tatau where diorg want pegi.
the correct translation:Amazing Race All Stars are shooting at Lax(could be Luxembourg) now.No idea where there are going next.

someone get Joab or someone to translate this.

It fits, and IMO seems very likely as a detour option or something.

The Amazing Race is in Broken Hill NSW (Australia) today. They had to get a clue from the Memorial Oval , dress as Kangaroos with big bouncy shoes and bounce to my street (Mercury Street) for their next clue. Then they were off to the Junction Mine in their Four Wheel Drives. So funny seeing them bounce around dressed as Kangaroos. Does anyone know when this new Season will be aired??

I just saw Jaime posted something on her FB like 12 hours ago.  :ascared

Jamie has had that automatic posting for along time.......everyday it will automatically post a "thought for the day" There are a lot of apps like that on facebook. I have seen nothing on her stream that "she" really posted since noon last Sat.

Sorry, my bad.

And remember, the teams are now on the Indian Pacific, heading for Sydney.  The arrival time at Central is 1015 AEDST on Wednesday (i.e. tomorrow morning).

Now, I still have that hot rumour that Seven Network producers were in Melbourne timing getting from Southern Cross to Eureka Skydeck.  I think it is a slim chance, but could Melbourne be a final port of call in Oz before an international gateway departure to somewhere else?  I wonder.

We shall see tomorrow.

You could probably ask at a counter, although there were not many Countrylink lines. It wouldn't be too hard to check at the station, just make sure you arrive early to give yourself time to do so.

Thanks in advance.

Platforms 1-3 (Non-gated area, closest to Pitt Street & the tower). All "interstate" services go from there.

EDIT: Most likely platform one, as it has a car carrying facility, and the Indian Pacific has cars on it.

Need to head back to work, they got off Indian Express about 1030 and were all ushered in to a waiting room that was further down the platform. Got only about 20 seconds of footage which is a bit shaky. I'd say they know where they are going already due to lack of clue and no rushing

I couldn't see the embed youtube option, but my video will be up here once it is processed by youtube. Only 13 seconds long because I had to run down the platform as they got ushered in to another room. It's filmed in HD, so hopefully it is good enough to make out some faces.

This is an appeal to all in Sydney who may be around Sydney Central this afternoon!

If Tokyo is indeed the next destination, teams are not likely to be released until after 3.00pm, and there's a good likelihood teams will still be held at the train station. If you guys are free it'd be great for someone to check out the waiting rooms!

Sorry guys, it is the best I can do with the vfid qualiity.

From dhall:

Def seen were:

There were a bunch of ppl there who were one way or the other directed there by RFF. Production might have been spooked a little. As mentioned, when the train arrived, TAR was not in production. Teams were held back till most of the other passengers had cleared from the platform. Teams were then ushered into a waiting room near the platform. (I Cannot be certain on which team has been eliminated as all the teams might have been on the same train. I personally saw the Globetrotters, the Cowboys, Kynt & Vyxsin, Jamie & Cara and i think Margie & Luke). As I was about to leave one of the production ppl approached one of us and informed us that the teams were being held for at least the next 2 hours and then will be off to the airport. Not sure how much of this is misdirection.

Let's not jump to conclusions yet...

She said she saw teams open clue one by one to start 2nd leg...

the order teams open clue:

1st:Zev and Justin
2nd:Flight time and Big easy
3th:cowboy
4th:Margie and Luke
5th:Kisha and Jen
6th:Mel and Mike
7th:Goth
8th:Jamie and Cara
9th:Gary and Mallory
10th:Ron and Chris



My source, which I know I havent built up credit, said that list is fabricated. I heard Amanda and Kris have been seen still, still havent seen a sighting of Zev/Justin or Ron/Christina.

From spotter Lance on the scene at Central. I need to confirm, looks like 10 teams

yep the teams were all ushered into a waiting room - no phil :(
Local production staff roped off the area, and teams were just sitting there flaking out. Cameracrew recharged batteries and went to Hungry Jacks (Burger King for our american folk) for two hours. Some teams were videotaped doing interviews on the platform before the amazing mat was rolled out and teams were able to open up their next clue.


1st:Zev and Justin in red shirts left at 12
2nd:Flight time and Big easy left at 12:10pm
3th:cowboy left at 12:11pm
4th:Margie and Luke # 12:12 pm
5th:Kisha and Jen 12:13 pm
6th:Mel and Mike
7th:Goth
8th:Jamie and Cara
9th:Gary and Mallory - big cheer from the schoolgirls watching!
10th:Ron and Chris # 12:25pm

# Okay some of the teams went to the info desk and asked for the nearest travel agent and he said the student flights at railway square so i followed margie and luke across. the others might have headed straight to the airport.

Unfortunately Railcorp staff were vigilant so no photos or video was allowed (bollocks) of the teams on the amazing mat opening up their clues and counting their money.

Ron and Christina were seen leaving Central Station in Sydney!

This video is by a SurvivorSucks Member called Charity00, she tried to film Ron and Christina but was stopped by production. Ron and Christina were seen leaving Central Station in Sydney.

Look at the backpacks and the height difference. Ron has a blue backpack and Xtina has a red backpack, which corresponds to the previous pictures taken.

Edit: Question to Charity00, did Ron and Christina survived first leg?
They ran past Charity and said thanks to him.

Flights status.......

QF 21.....direct from Sydney to Toyko is ~2 hours and 54 minutes from touchdown at Narita International. Flight is anticipated to land at 0540.

CX524.......from my usual sources......2 different flight tracking services.........has not taken off yet and is ~35 minutes delayed so far. This is the Hong Kong to Narita flight.
This flight finally showed up on one source............delayed ~  18 minutes at takeoff, but anticipated arrival is 0551 in Toyko

I think Peach's Chateau's rule of direct flights might bite some teams in the hiney.

It looks like both are arriving at terminal 2. I've been through Narita several times and terminal 2 is QUICK. Chances are the teams from both flights won't even see each other.

Here are the links to track the flights:

CX524 --> http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightStatus/flightStatusByFlight.do?id=210016261&airlineCode=CX&flightNumber=524 (http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightStatus/flightStatusByFlight.do?id=210016261&airlineCode=CX&flightNumber=524)

QF21 --> http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightStatus/flightStatusByFlight.do?id=209953738&airlineCode=QF&flightNumber=21 (http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightStatus/flightStatusByFlight.do?id=209953738&airlineCode=QF&flightNumber=21)


Now, if this is all on target, the teams will be arriving at Narita in just a few hours, but Phil must have already arrived in Japan the evening before - if you remember from the Muscat, Oman leg in TAR17, in the CBS extras videos, Phil was telling Nat/Kat that the flight flying over their head was the flight he was supposed to be on (to go to Dhaka).   So as the last team checks in at the previous pitstop and finishes their mat-chat, Phil and crew are on their way to the next destination.

It's still 3:36AM in Tokyo right now, so probably too early for a Phil sighting, but it would be really interesting if Japanese fans can post a few witness shots of him! (Especially since TAR reruns have been airing on AXN Japan, and the Mixi fan group for the AXN version has 500 members in it, I know there is a following there. I posted this info on the Mixi fan group for the US-version of TAR, and there are many excited souls in the land of the Rising Sun!)

(MODIFIED) I have confirmed with the source that this tweet is from one of the members of my TAR fan community in mixi.jp.

It says "I heard the Amazing Race participants are coming to Japan today. I want to go to Narita right now..."

He actually lives quite far north, away from the Kanto region, so I don't think he would have made it in time.
Also, he got the information from me, after I posted the details from *THIS* thread onto our community's forum.  So there's a circular reference here...

One of the members on my TAR fan community on mixi.jp actually went to Narita on the morning of the 25th (upon my alert on mixi) and got pictures!  I am going to check with him if he can register on rff and post them himself...

He also said he gave a shout out to some of the racers, and the replied!  (I'll let him post all the juicy details himself - as I cannot claim credit for this sighting)

there were 3 teams I recognized and 2-3 teams I didn't. There was a goth looking couple as well. The mom of the deaf son was talking about another plane that also took off with a bunch of teams on it.

Each team had a camera man....and they were lugging a huge camera. Maybe the size of your Rimowa rolly bag. HD makes sense....I was wondering why their equip was so big. Camera men were all struggling to keep up with the teams.

flt was 70mins late so they were worried that they were going to have to play catch up.

Ok, here are the details from one of the members on my TAR fan community on mixi.jp.  He (not me - I live in Seattle) posted a note on our version of the TAR18 spoiler thread (mirroring this one!) at 2010/11/25 THU 8:26AM JST, with details as follows (translated from Japanese - don't worry, I'm a Japanese native  :lol:)

-------
LIVE FROM NARITA TERMINAL 2! (Arrival Lobby)

CX524 arrived 80 minutes late!
The teams that arrived earlier are probably already headed into town.
The SQ flight 538 that arrived via Singapore arrived at Terminal1 around the same time as this one, so there's no way I could spot anyone coming off of that flight.

Just now, Margie/Luke, Kynt/Vyxsin, Zev/Justin and Jamie/Cara (in that order) exited from EXIT B and got into cars that were waiting for them.

The staff members were guarding tightly, so I couldn't quite get close to the racers (I wanted to know where the clue told them to go), but I shouted out

"Go! Kynt/Vyxsin, go!"

and Vyxsin turned around to look at me and flashed a nice smile!  :yess:

Jamie/Cara were standing elsewhere, so I got closer to them and called out their name, and they said

"Thanks for recognizing us"

------------------------------------

So there you have it - 4 teams arrived on CX524 (actual arrival time recorded on http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightStatus/flightStatusByFlight.do?id=210016261&airlineCode=CX&flightNumber=524 (http://www.flightstats.com/go/FlightStatus/flightStatusByFlight.do?id=210016261&airlineCode=CX&flightNumber=524) was 7:32AM).

Here's the link to the Narita Terminal 2 Arrival Lobby map (1st floor). If you zoom in, you can see where EXIT B is located (to the lower left of the map):
http://www.narita-airport.jp/en/guide/map/airport_map/t2/t2_1f.html (http://www.narita-airport.jp/en/guide/map/airport_map/t2/t2_1f.html)

Not sure if that means the other 6(?) teams were on QF21 - the direct SYD-NRT flight, but that arrived at Narita Terminal 2 much earlier around 6:13AM, so the teams would have rushed out some time around 7:15AM-ish.

Hi, guys.

I'm the one whom kenchan was talking about.
Yes, I went to Narita airport this morning to spot racers according to the info kenchan gave us.

As I mentioned, I attempted to get close to the racers, talk, and acquire info they have.
However, those filming crews were tightly guarding racers as if they were VIP or celebrities.
So, I couldn't even get close within 20 feet or so.
When I tried to picture racers coming out of the exit door, the staff were as if trying to prevent me to do so by surrounding racers and block my shooting.
What I could get was only sneak taken crap pictures out of focus, and racers can be barely identified with them.
It's OK I post them here.  But please don't be disappointed looking at those crappy pictures.

Thanks Kenchan!

m unknown...
Racers I could see were; Margie/Luke, Goths, Zev/Justin and Jamie/Cara, and that's it and I'm very positive I didn't miss Mel/Mike or any others.
Every single time racers came out of the door, the cameraman with 2 feet bazooka like video camera on his arm came out prior to racers.
With that sign, all the staff member turned busy and noisy.
That happened 3 times - Zev/Justin and Jamie/Cara came out of the door almost the same time.
After these 4 teams went by, everyone was gone quickly and nobody stayed there after two minutes.
...I felt it was over and impossible to guess where they went, so I went to work instead of spotting them.

Peach gave me the lead to the person who posted this update on Facebook.  I'm getting the details figured out as his account is somewhat sketchy, but he is visiting the Tokyo area so he's not a resident there - gotta cut him a bit of slack there, as Japan can be confusing to many foreigners.

What I have so far is the following (he gave me permission to share details):

Quote
I went there in the afternoon. I don't know which temple that was as I'm also a foreigner here but it's the one where you have to climb a number of steps before you reach the top. I saw cowboys, 2 black ladies, 2 pink-dyed hair ladies, and a Caucasian couple. I was able to take a picture of the cowboy and the black ladies.

2 pink-dyed hair ladies FTW!!!  :colors  :lol:

Anyway, I am checking with him when he was there and where the exact temple/shrine he was at. He later on did say it was during the afternoon and was located near the center of the city, so I am going on a whim and say it was the Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu (鶴岡八幡宮) (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode&q=%E9%B6%B4%E5%B2%A1%E5%85%AB%E5%B9%A1%E5%AE%AE&sll=35.31629%2C139.549842&sspn=0.006461%2C0.013937&ie=UTF8&hq=%E9%B6%B4%E5%B2%A1%E5%85%AB%E5%B9%A1%E5%AE%AE&hnear&ll=35.323599%2C139.555142&spn=0.01285%2C0.027874&z=16&layer=c&cbll=35.32367%2C139.554967&panoid=Ota8wQsGSkPJ75x1zWiocw&cbp=12%2C15.57%2C%2C0%2C3.41).

(hold on, this is still unconfirmed)

This is a nice walk away from the JR Kamakura Station, and quite a popular tourist spot.

Stay tuned...

 :yess: UPDATE!
I just got confirmation that it was indeed at the Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu Shrine (see the Google street view link above) on Friday afternoon where he spotted Jet/Cord, Kisha/Jen, Kynt/Vyxsin, and what I am guessing as Amanda/Kris or Margie/Luke.  Checking what time he saw them.

For more information, check out the Wikipedia page on Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsurugaoka_Hachiman-g%C5%AB).


 :yess: UPDATE#2!

His sighting was around 1:30PM on 2010/11/25 FRI.

what about Jaime and Cara? :(
those freaking cheerleaders who complain them that the locals can't speak English?  Heck probably they're the last one to arrive at the pit stop and they have difficulties on communicating with the Japanese locals there.  I wish they'd been eliminated there or else... (:;)

They probably won't make the F3 this year.
And how are these posts live sightings or spoilers?

I think the "2 pink dyed hair girls" could be Jaime/Cara. I don't think it's Kynt/Vyxsin; it's understandable that someone could possibly mistake Kynt for a girl but last time I checked his hair is completely black, isn't it?

This is the closest I could get.... see if we can make sense of it:
"To the time senior who American にあーだこーだ was said from morning, and drew breath [isn't that AmazingRace doing in CS?]It was the American TV program which it watched last month in Cairns when it examined it said to be].

Since morning [something about Americans]. I told a superior during break: "Isn't it The Amazing Race?!" It was an American Show that I watched last month in Cairns. The parent & child I talked to boarded the HP [or boarded in HP].

This person could have easily been talking about K/V if K was wearing his pink bandana and was not directly in front of said person. He could then look like a girl with pink hair from a short distance... :umn:

I've got to admit this is what I've been thinking aswell especially if he was spotted wearing it so from a distance it could kind of look like his hair

On a side note do we know if the teams are still in Japan or could they have left already presuming no-one saw them at an airport???

Step aside everyone, here's the translation:

Some Americans have been gabbing away at me all morning, but when we got a bit of a break, someone senior to me said "Hey, isn't that the Amazing Race that's on C(B)S?" So I looked it up, and sure enough, it was the American TV show that we watched in Cairns (Australia) last month.

Found it! (http://twitter.com/#!/cueyolove/status/8323159979728896)  Looks like the owner is some girl? who lives in the Chiba prefecture, just east of the Tokyo prefecture.

I could go find out, but I don't think this is a TAR18 lead.

BTW, is TAR17 being shown in Australia pretty much at the same time as it is in the US? (perhaps with a few days delay, like it is in AXN all over Asia except Japan?)

Well, I sure hope she saw some teams.....otherwise it doesnt make much sense. Film crews do not travel without the teams. WRP has been known to use two different production crews.....leapfrogging cities to set things up and be ready for when the teams arrive to coordinate the tasks and challenges.


This was posted at 2:30 pm, Hong Kong time. There was a flight that arrived in HK from Singapore at 2 pm. Looks like she might have been on her way to Beijing......that flight left at 3:00 pm.....so you might not hear from here till she gets there....if that is where she was going.

Thanks ovalorange!  That's similar to AXN in Southeast/South Asia. The first time I actually saw TAR was season one on AXN, when I was visiting India. It was the rat temple episode.  How befitting!

Anyway, I found one more tweet, but I am guessing she learned about the TAR18 racers visiting Tokyo either through my fan community on mixi, or through this thread:

Kota Kinabalu is part of Malaysia.. while Borneo is part of Brunei.. ohh, geography lesson learnt today. I always thought Borneo's part of Malaysia! :-[

I don't think physically TAR has stepped into Brunei.. but again, all these are speculation.. i searched and poked my head around and didn't find anything else about TAR in Brunei.. :(

Borneo is just a really big island.  Part belongs to Sultan of Brunei, part to Malaysia and part to Indonesia.

It is probably a local thing.....the TAR part

Just now
Ooooohhh! Thanks :-) RT @BruneiTweet: @lynzelectric might be @telbru's Let's Drive event.


To me.......this just means there is a local event in Brunei......doubt it is anything to do with TAR.

i dont think gary would be happy with that description - was all the teams seen at the station wearing white caps as both gary, mallory and ron are all seen wearing them in the 2 photos peach put up - could this possibly be so production could see them easier or was it just coincidence???

Thats not Ron behind the guy in the green. First of all its a female, second its a white person, third they are too short to be Ron, and fourth they are standing in the exact same position that Mallory is standing in the first picture.

Oh and you can see Mallory's blonde around her temple region.

You can also see Gary's shoulder in the very center of the picture, with the yellow shirt on and the black backpack with orange on it.

That pic is still of Gary and Mallory

"Chatted with Chris for a long time, using both Mandarin and English. She and her dad speak Mandarin in great standard, I said 'You have to win', she thanked me after this. She is so nice, I wanna give her some help, but she denied and said she want to play a fair game, and doesn't want to cheat. At last, she gave me a hug to thank me, I'm gonna cry."

Thanks Weihen for the translations of Mad Joe's updates! I guess it wouldn't hurt if I put in my version as well:

1.45pm: God, I found Zev and Justin!
1.49pm: God! I gave them Y200.
2.00pm: I don't know if Zev and Justin are last. I asked and they denied it, but they looked sullen. Cameramen don't give up (sic). They asked me for money, and I gave them Y200. They ran off but I didn't follow. I'm now at the entrance to the Old City of Lijiang, waiting to see if there are others. P.S. They denied getting the Express Pass.
2.07pm: Indeed, there is a performance at the plaza.
2.24pm: God, I found Christina and Ron. They're safe for this leg, and they're performing a folk dance. It's not wise to get closer; the cameramen are following closely.
2.30pm: Talked a long while with Christina, both in English and Chinese. Both she and her father are pretty fluent in Chinese. I told them to go for gold, and she thanked me. I wanted to help her, but she's too honest and didn't want to "cheat". She hugged to thank me in the end, I'm going to cry...
2.59pm: Met up with Uncle Bao. He's exasperated to have not seen anybody. Haha, funny!

time he commented or the time he saw the teams?

ron and christina performing what? is it a task? how were they safe? are they enjoying? sorry, too vague?

also, are there eyewitness reports on who got eliminated in Japan?

These are the times that the updates came in. I'm not going to make any speculation, as the eyewitness himself will probably check in later to clarify things. Any eyewitness reports would be reflected in this thread, so if you don't see one here there we probably don't have any information for now.

I guess further discussion should be directed to the Discussion Thread?

Note: The dancers are a staple on Sifangjie Plaza. They might not necessarily have to do with the race.

Kynt and Vyxsin are in front of the Qingqing Jiaqi Kezhan Holiday Inn at 150 Xinyi St, just north of Sifangjie Plaza.

Amanda & Kris eliminated in Oz, Cowboys in Japan

Please review your facts before posting! Jet and Cord were seen in Kunming, with photo evidence.

From my copy of Lonely Planet:
Above the old town is a beautiful park that can be reached on the path leading past the radio mast... Here acting as sentinel of sorts for the town, the Wanggu Lou (admission Y15) was raised for tourists at a cost of over one million yuan. It's famed for a unique design using dozens of four-storey pillars - unfortunately these were culled from northern Yunnan old-growth forests. A path (with English signs) leads from Old Market Sq.

Is there anyway to ask Mad Joe to clarify what he means regarding the U-Turn?

Is he saying that K/V are running last and had to face a U Turn?

Or is he saying that they finished last, and face a Speed Bump next leg?

Or is he saying they were U-Turned, then had a 30 minute penalty?

Or is it something else completely different?

Because what was reported weihan makes no sense in the context of the current rules of TAR.

Sounds like second leg b/c it looks like a place that Phil will want to introduce. I would say possible task there.

FYI it is 6:15am there but the market opens at 5am. However if they try to go somewhere else it will probably be closed. That's why the should do a task there.

From a blog find:

Quote
I took a sleeper train from Kunming, and saw a couple tall ladies with matching red-dyed hair being video-taped and interviewed about how their flight was rushed and what they thought, blah blah. I didn't think much of it, but then when boarding the train, I saw a couple other camera crew running around. Then when arriving in Lijiang (the train was nice and double storied, which I hadn't seen before in China, but no door on the cabin... but at least the cabin was empty) at just before 7am, I saw a couple guys in matching outfits and cowboy hats also being interviewed as they got into one of the dozens of minivan taxis waiting to take people to Lijiang. I then started to think "Hey, this might be The Amazing Race or The Amazing Race Asia." I took a shared taxi but should have waited a bit more since at 715am the buses started arriving (but I didn't know). Anyway, after getting to the Old Town of Lijiang and finding a room at a decent price, I rested a little and then an hour later braved the cold (thankfully mild compared to other times I've been here in winter) to start walking around and taking more pictures and to eat breakfast. After walking up a hill to try to get a good view of the Old Town (the view is monopolized by many restaurants and you can't take photos without eating or drinking there), I stumbled across the host of the show as he was acting out with his translator and a woman dressed in local Naxi clothing how the teams will respond. I videoed him and took some photos and he came over and introduced himself as Steve. I asked if he was with The Amazing Race and he said "No, I wish!" but just a small travel show for The Discovery Channel, which I thought was even better because I quite like The Discovery Channel. After wishing him good luck I went down the hill and saw 3 more "teams" of partners and other crews filming them as they acted quite like they do on The Amazing Race (having to answer puzzles and put clues in certain ways to locals before given cards for their next destination). So either "Steve" lied to me (though he didn't look like the host I've seen before on The Amazing Race) or there were 2 different shows filming consecutively or the show being filmed (with at least 4 distinct teams of 2 people each) was copying the style of The Amazing Race for a China-only show. In any event, quite fun to watch but it also made me wish I was on the show competing for a million dollars since a couple years ago I applied with a friend but never heard back. Again, that's life but it's nice to know that I'm heading to some places that are considered worthy enough for either The Amazing Race or The Discovery Channel. It was also neat to see how many crew really are needed to follow around teams of people to make a television reality / travel show.

I'll try to post some pictures of the people I saw filming when I get the chance and a good internet connection. I still don't have access to facebook (both China and Vietnam block access) but should later in the week.

:hearts: LOL at Phil disguising himself as Steve. :lol3:

The Article from Barrier Daily Truth has finally been opened. Nothing new, though. :(

Quote
Quite a few locals were excited yesterday at the news that contestants and crew from the US TV reality show 'The Amazing Race' were in the city as part of their Australian leg of the show.
The production crew and 11 American couples arrived in the city on two Rex chartered planes yesterday morning from Sydney, and were picked up by several four-wheeldrives.
The show has couples race across the globe, doing crazy things at each destination. Rotary and St Johns Ambulance were at the old Junction Mine yesterday with the crew and contestants while they filmed a sequence for the show.
Many locals drove up to catch a glimpse of the proceedings. When the BDT approached the production crew for an interview, a spokesman for the show worked on the basis of little to no publicity.
But locals gave regular updates on their sightings of the groups on Facebook. According to posts on the site later in the day, the contestants had to go to Memorial Oval where they found an envelope telling them they had to dress up as Kangaroos and hop to Mercury Street for their next clue before they made their way to the Junction Mine.
Mayor Wincen Cuy took part in filming at the Junction Mine, but couldn't give the BDT any information as to what his role was.
"I had to sign a declaration of confidence," Mayor Cuy said. "I was involved, and it will be fabulous for Broken Hill."
City Council's media adviser John Casey said council would not comment on any projects filmed "in and around Broken Hill without theexpress permission of those companies and individuals involved.
"At this time we have been asked to keep details of projects currently in development in Broken Hill confidential and do not have permission tomake any further comment".

The nearest similarity i can find to this would be the person might be referring to TARA Season 4 Episode 3, the leg was held in Sri Lanka.. and it's very easy to mix Sri Lanka and India up.

yup that's indonesian.. other than the phrases kayak and amazing race.. not sure what the rest means.. although "kesaana sini terus" probably means "goes here and there"

@Melongray wat clearance confirm bergelotan ala2 cam amazing race la feet..tapi ni pagi2 mungkin x kot (Malay??)

this one's in Malay sms/street talk... "doing clearance.. confirmed havoc (or everyone rushing) like the amazing race.. but this is early morning, so probably not"

"Wuiik.. Balap-balapan naek bije. Serasa Amazing Race wekekekekeke :)"

It's probably nothing anyways...

another indonesian (could be malay too) :lol:
it doesn't mean anything.. he just experienced a "race-like" amazing race :)

More info from Robert Oceans with BIG thanks!!  :


Quote
I saw the teams when I was in Kunming (Yunnan China) waiting to catch a train to Lijiang (the night sleeper train).


I saw two females with dyed red hair being interviewed by a cameraman and a boom mic hand. I didn't think much of it but overheard the cameraman asking them about whether the flight was a tight connection.


Then when down by the train platform I saw 2 other camera crew running by the train. I then told my friend who said she saw 2 black guys being interviewed also. I then commented that it would be funny if it was The Amazing Race.


When arriving in Lijiang early I saw 2 white guys in cowboy hats being filmed as they got into a shared taxi. I then realized it must be TAR or something similar.


When in Lijiang old town after checking into a hotel I saw a couple more camera crew walking and talking. And one said "where are the lead teams?" to which the other replied "must be heading to the hill by now. I then asked my friend, who is from Lijiang, where a high overlook was. We went there and that's when I saw "Steve." I filmed a little but he walked over to speak to me and I asked if he was with TAR but he replied "No I wish. Just a travel show with the Discovery Channel. Why, did you see the Amazing Race filming here?" I then said I loved Discovery and yeah I thought I saw the TAR crew and at least 3 teams (saw a 4th later). He then stopped interacting with his translator and some roadblock or final leg woman, whom he'd been acting out how to respond to teams if they put up a fuss. I figured I was in the way of production so I wished "Steve" well and left.


Later I saw some Chinese in local traditional Naxi costumes by a large prayer device with Chinese zodiac symbols and a 4th team answering a puzzle and putting a slip of paper in a slot and then getting an envelope and running away to their next leg. That's where I took most pictures of the many crew.

Brief aside: I suspect that any tweets/FB statuses over the next week that are in Indonesian / Malay / Filipino might be in anticipation over the forthcoming TARA 4 finale; so I wouldn't immediately assume that they're for us (and, in fact, I'm going to take a stab and say they aren't going to SE Asia).  :tup:

The tweet is from http://twitter.com/zennmaster3

Looks like he went to Chennai, maybe the teams also took a flight to Chennai and then went somewhere else? I'll leave it up to the real detectives to take this further:)

Been a long time since we've heard something, which is exciting and pretty annoying at the same time!

This was in Calcutta or Kolkatta as it is called now on the 2nd of December 1510hrs. Taking the kingfisher flight. The dudes in the cowboy and one more hippy looking team had already cleared security while another two teams, one of them being the tall african american women were outside getting tickets from the kingfisher airlines. I am not sure as to where they head further from there on. That is all I know. Hope this helps.




So...here are those flights....where are they heading??   :jumpy:

No it was just them. I only realized what I had seen when I left the station. I can only tell you this much. They were wearing blue clothing and not in a particular hurry. The camera guys just carried the huge cameras and were not filming.

I really wonder where they were going. They were riding the interregio train which means there had to be some kind of stop in Switzerland.

Here's the schedule for that train. http://fahrplan.sbb.ch/bin/traininfo.exe/en/795198/265636/392280/68926/85?date=07.12.10&

Those times are correct. The odd part is that there are trains from Vienna to Zurich but not that one.

Yes however that train can be used to connect from Austria to Zurich. There must have been some sort of stop or challenge on the way from Austria to Zurich. Liechtenstein maybe?

You mean a connection like Vienna to Sargans, Sargans to Chur and Chur to Zurich? I think that would work.

No.The Vienna train goes Vienna - Sargans - Chur. The Chur one goes Chur - Sargans - Zurich. The lines intersect at Sargans. Which points to a Liechtenstein stop or something else in that region.

prophet,

It's not so odd at all since it is a SwissRail schedule and trains from Vienna to Switzerland are most likely not SBB. However, I think it fits for another reason. See my post here:
   
Re: TAR 18 Locations/Destinations **spoilers**
« Reply #227 on: Today at 02:45:55 PM »

Posts by Dr. Rox suggest that the most recent leg is Chur, Switzerland. Irrespective of the accuracy of that, there are frequent flights (at least every 2 hours) from Vienna to Zurich that take about 1.5 hours. The Swissrail IC train from Zurich Flughafen to Zurich Hbf takes 12 minutes and runs at least twice every reasonable hour and the IC train from Zurich HBF to Chur runs about every hour and takes 1.5 hours. That gives a total trip time of advance for airport checkin (maybe 1.5 hours), 1.5 hours in flight, an average of 0.5 hours including schedule delay to Zurich Hbf and 1.5 hours plus schedule delays from Zurich Hbf to Chur. That totals a minimum of about 5 hours. By itself, that doesn't help us much until we know more about what the pit stop release time in Vienna was and what the tasks in Chur were.

I was looking at Dec. 6 for the date of travel from Vienna to Chur. What is the logical next step? It is to get back to Zurich Hbf to fly off to wherever. The way to do that is the exact reverse of the train travel above: IC train hourly from Chur to Zurich Hbf and approximately once every half hour IC train from Zurich Hbf to Zurich Flughafen. From Zurich, a major European air hub, teams could get anyway in Europe, Africa, South America or North America.

No, it would make 5, just so long as they don't go to S. America afterward... but yeah, it does seem kinda fishy if you ask me

In the words of the wisest person on this board (georgiapeach)- 'Dont disregard a spoiler until it is proven to be false'. What if this is a missing link, at one of the points we didnt see the teams for days, like just after the J/C elimination??

Have we proven that J/C have been eliminated? I don't think so.

There are lots of rumors out there. I've seen two places today spoiling that Matt and Gary from season 15 are on Season 18.  :cmaslol Still, that falls under the category of rumors proven to be false. TAR could have gone to Liberia. I think it's not a high percentage possibility, but it's worth keeping an eye out for any information that could confirm it. Unfortunately, there's not a big social networking base in Liberia, so it'll be tough to find any confirming info online. At least they speak English in Liberia.

Although it may be fake it says an intersection, in which teams would be forced to work togther. Anyone no why kevin and connor are not attending?

Hi,

This is my first post on this AMAZING board and I want to use it to say a big Thank you to you,  Peach, and all the
others who work so hard to make it so great.

Over the years, I've learned so much from the many talented people who add so much to the Amazing Race
experience on this forum. 

So a big thank you to each of you. :cmas16  In a sense, you each run your own 'amazing race' in seeking clues, measuring shadows (my favorite :-),
picture taking,  investigating each lead and bringing it all together to fit each piece into solving each season's  Amazing Race puzzle.

Merry Christmas from a fan of the Amazing Race and this board.  :kisses

Peach is not only a fabulous and gifted detective, she is one of the most modest people I have ever met.  Every time someone thanked her or remarked about the great work done, she would always give credit to the whole team.  She constantly reinforced the fact that she does not do this alone. She always deflected the appreciation being shown to her. Our fearless leader is a real class act!

again, I know this isnt exactly the right thread (but you have nothing better to do today than move posts right?!), but I thought it would embarrass you if I started a "Peach is the bomb" thread

I spoke to many racers over the weekend, specifically about RFF.  They had some great things to say about the site, but as not to go too far off topic on this thread, I will post those stories later in the TARCon thread.

Imagine, right now.. we only know who the first 3 teams eliminated are... as opposed to knowing the F3...

There are some people who only watch TAR because of the teams they like... imagine if everyone knew who the F3 are... it could potentially affect ratings... and it does not help too IF the F3 consist of 3 teams which the audiences generally do not like.

Just my two cents. :cmas16

It's a little complicated. There is a sighting in Salzburg but it has not been confirmed and in fact is not of a team.
There's some conflicting info and Peach is trying to contact the sighter while still allowing them anonymity.

Apparently 7 mile bridge was closed on Monday for filming the Amazing Race.
Not sure - but I think its a 7 mile bridge just outside of Marathon Fl that has been replaced by a new bridge.
The old bridge is used for walking now.

Do you think it was used for a task or for the finish line? Yes the old one is pedestrian only and the new one is a highway bridge. FYI this is quite a ways from Miami and Key Biscayne.
Great find, BTW!

Pigeon Key would be a great place to hide the Finish Line. There's a photo on Wikipedia which is taken from the vehicular 7-Mile Bridge, and you could fit the Finish Line behind that building, trees, and the ramp to the island.

Well since you did not post the orginal sender of the tweet......I can only surmise that it was from someone from here asking if she saw the teams in the airport.

From her posting history....it appears she is on a cruise this week. If I was in MIA people watching, I would be one floor up in the main concourse...not on the lower level where people exit from Immigration/Customs.....its pretty barren and isolated there.

That totally depends.  Since the teams were on an international flight into Miami, Jet-Cord might have been waiting for their camera crew and equipment to clear customs.  Or TPTB were holding all the teams until all camera crews cleared.

I saw the original post...it was at 1230 and just said people watching in the Miami airport...so doubtful that it was anything as our guys were much earlier.

Adding in some more info about our Finale Leg.

Thanks to the great work of florida, teams were spotted in Miami!

 TAR 18 teams arrived in MIA from Sao Paulo 12-13-10 on flight AA930 at 9:36 AM  (Landed 121 min late)  

9 of the 11 teams were seen briefly at the airport.
 
Production was present.
 
Clues appeared to be handed to teams who then dispersed within the airport area. (decoy run?)

All teams were eventually seen heading to the taxis....

This reflects weeks of valiant effort on the part of the team, so many thanks to Slowhatch, Neobie, Chateau, MamaT, caper and especially florida!! 

Slowhatch was the first to find the Miami area film permit way back on 11/24. Many of you all spotted it shortly before the race...thanks to all of you who helped keep that confidential until we were sure the racers were safely through the location!

That permit gave us Miami as a possible location, and was later confirmed secondarily.

 
Quote
Countywide, Marine Stadium Marina.


So here is the broad outline of what we know now:

 The first stop after the Miami airport was the marine stadium marina location, there only about 15-20minutes.

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2018/Finale%20LIVE%2012-13-10/TAR18finaleKeyBiscayne.jpg)

 SPEC is that this was a route info clue only.

They then continued south to Key Largo, which was the site of the next task:

 a RoadBlock.

(http://i210.photobucket.com/albums/bb140/ga--peach/TAR%2018/Finale%20LIVE%2012-13-10/cluebox.jpg)


Following that, they proceded south through the Keys to Big Pine Key for the next task.

walkingpneumonia's blog find re the Seven Mile Bridge closure would then follow nicely from there.


I am opening a thread for the finale location discussion (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,24308.0.html)...please take any further spec and discussion there. Live sightings/tweets/spoiler sources/blogs etc should still go here. :ty3:

Were they all taken around the same time, or were some of those teams from the Sao Paulo flight?

I believe all 11 teams arrived in Miami on AA 930 from Sao Paulo......according to Peach.

Yes, they were all taken at the same time and off the Sao Paulo flight that was delayed the earliest.

To finally answer the post about the "pilot illness" (it was either in this thread or the other one), I unknowingly sat close to people associated with production and when a girl came over to introduce herself, my ears perked up because the customs area was pretty much empty. So I got out my crossword puzzle book and pretended to be busy while eavesdropping which is when one guy was mentioning a pilot being sick among other things.....so the super delayed flight was what "pilot illness" was referring to.

The flight the teams arrived on AA930 was delayed about 2 hours. The "pilot illness" flight was AA990 and about a 10 hour delay. Seems like they had to wait for a pilot from one of the previous days flights have his required rest period, to replace the ill pilot.

No...that info was clarified to say 9 of the 11 teams in the post above..

But yes, all off the Sao Paulo flight as described.

I have no idea how relevant this is  :cmas5

"WHAT?! The next amazing race is all-stars & my friend saw the clue box... I COULD HAVE MET THEM, UGGG why didnt she tell me when she saw it" - 23 hours ago.

Followup on this:

Cluebox was seen 2 months ago in Canada so not us:

Oh that's so cool. Ok so my friend saw it about 2 months ago I would say it was at a winery in canada somewhere between Mississauga and st.Catharines she couldn't remember where exactly but it was closer to st. Cats that is what she told me at least...

If teams had a connection in HK from Sydney to Tokyo , they wouldn't fly from Tokyo to HK UNLESS the connection in HK went to Lijiang.

I have a feeling that this would be their Elimination Station for the eliminated racers.  It might be in Bali.

Sounds to me that it was ONLY on the Toyko to Hong Kong portion of the flight.......The poster was going to Bali and I would think, that if the TAR personal went to Bali, she would say that. It could be the teams going from Toyko to Lijiang or the Japanese eliminated team...Mel and Mike......at one point she talks in the singular and at another point, she talks in the plural.
