Heres my 2 cents worth

I found an interview on tv tonight with Producer Michael McKay and it said he would like TAR AUS to go to America :)

Full interview at http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2011/06/amazing-reputation-opens-doors-for-the-race.html

Also I'm Surprised season 1 didnt go to new zealand, i can see season 2 going to New Zealand first leg or last leg before coming back home(Like singapoue last season).

Australia -> New Zealand
New Zealand -> Fiji or Hawaii
Fiji or Hawaii -> Mainland USA (probably LA)
Mainland US -> UK
UK
UK -> Germany
Germany -> Italy
Italy -> Middle East
Middle East -> India
India
India -> China
China -> Australia.

OR

Australia -> Philippines
Phillippines -> Thailand
Thailand -> China
China
China -> India
India -> Russia
Russia -> Finland
Finland -> Germany/France
Germany/France -> Morocco
Morocoo -> USA
USA
USA -> New Zealand -> Australia.

what about racing around the Ring of Fire area from Australia to Philippines, then to Japan, then to Alaska and the US Pacific, then to Central America, then to Chile, then to New Zealand and finally back to Australia.  I wonder if those areas will cause another TAR disaster curse?!  That's shocking.  :ascared

To  be honest, I doubt New Zealand will appear unless it's in a role similar to how Singapore was used this season, or how Canada's been used in the US version - it's just no remote enough for us.

We also have to think about starting city i think Sydney or Brisbane as they have many international flights from their airports, i would love to see a starting line someone between Brisbane Airport and Gold Coast Airport so teams have to chouse which airport to go to for flights to the first destanation.

If the Americas is true (I NEED a DC leg to spoil!), I think it'd either be in the beginning or end of the route unless they do both North and South America. To me, it'd be far too awkward of a route. As for US cities, I could see LA or NYC as probable destinations. Direct flights from Sydney to LA and lots of flights to Europe from the east coast. I could see a route like

Aus-US (LA? Maybe find Phil for a clue like they did in TAR 16 in Singapore)
US (NYC?)
US-South America
South America
South America-Africa
Africa
Africa-Europe
Europe
Europe-Middle East
Middle East-India
India-China
China-Singapore/New Zealand-AUS

I really don't want Brisbane to be the starting line, it would make a much nicer finishing line! (Plus, I could follow them  :snicker: )

I assume we will see India this time around since all TAR versions that travel all around the world usually go to India every other season. Maybe a visit to mainland China. Maybe even the USA.

Hey, amazing race fan and weihen,

Perhaps the meaning of "No wish lists in the spec thread please!" by Georgia Peach one day before you posted just that here is not clear. There is a WishList thread started days before you posted where your posts should have been and can still be made.

So a sum up of what we have (and the source in brackts)

Possablilarty of america (tv 2nite interview,link in my first post)

New Zealand(a guess because of it's Distance from Australia and TAR Asia went there 3 out of it's 4 seasons and was the final destination in TAR israil and both of the before mentioned TARs and TAR AU are produced by active tv)

Sydney and/or Brisbane (a guess)

Active TV offices may have some possable teams(my crazy idea because this time last year they were Probably interviewing finalist teams)

Possable aboriganal teams (in the second post of this foram)

No wishlist (we have all gone thought this)

With the start and end cities in Season One being Melbourne and Perth, you would expect places like Brisbane or Sydney to be used next time.

However, I think it will be highly likely that the race will once again travel a full circle up to Europe and back again, without crossing either the Atlantic or Pacific. With that in mind, I would be surprised if they began and ended on the East Coast as flights up to Asia and elsewhere would be more expensive than the East.

Seeing as Perth is the only decent sized settlement on the East Coast, I am almost certain that it will be used as one of either the start or finish line. And I also doubt that TARAus would use the same city in the final episode twice, so my money's on Perth being the starting city.

Dom El,

My Australia maps have Perth located on the west coast of Australia for a long time. Has it moved?

Fixed! I'm not a stupid person but I always have to take a few seconds to remember which way is East and which is West. Perhaps I got dropped on a very specific part of my head as a child.. :duno:

The only info we have is that applications were opened in mid-July.

The timeline for the first season is as follows:
Applications open: 5th August 2010.
Applications close: 17th September 2010.
Race began: 5th November 2010.

The timeline for the second season so far is as follows:
Applications open: 19th July 2011.
Applications closed: 19th August 2011. (I think)

The only thing we have to go on here is the gap between applications closing and the race beginning last year. With that in mind, we would expect the race to be starting around now if the gap is kept the same. I can't imagine why the gap would be much larger than the first season, so my best guess is: any day now! Keep your eyes peeled!

you see this is why someone should go down to active tv and go a stake out because around this time last year i think they were choosing the final 11 so they(production) may bring the finalest team to active tv to tell them to get ready for a race around the world.

Thanks and yep sure no more info on them but they may be 2 males who just both happen to look emo/punk/goth. Also I am pretty sure this season we will see an Aboriginal/Indigenous Australian team.

I have my ways. Both from sources and doing research on the net. Starting location should probably be in Sydney this time, so keep your eyes peeled around the 26/27th of October.

The rumours of Malaysia as the first leg...have been UNconfirmed.

And looking as though the start will not be in Oct at all.

Also, just a reminder to those of you new here.

NO information on place and time of the actual start line should be posted in public before the racers are safely underway. This is to protect them from a media frenzy and insure a safe start.  :ty3:

One woman had a clipboard. They were in no rush to get anywhere. It was close to the Entertainment Centre.

Possibly a local race  :duno:

Sorry Peach, I am one of the only people left who doesn't have a smartphone with a decent camera on it.

Seems a little strange to me since you would think they wouldn't have such obvious t-shirts on if they were production.

Also Darling Harbour is a pretty busy place so to have a startline there would be at big risk of leaks.

Peach, I know that we have had some tweets and sightings that make you believe that TAR Australia 2 is starting soon, but do you have actual information that makes you believe that it is starting soon, or is it just from these possible production sightings. It could be starting any moment now, but it could be a another couple of weeks. You don't have to share your sources or what the information is, but do you have actual information from a source that the season is starting very soon?

I don't recall an airline sponsor in the first season. It just depends on if they have pre-booked tickets for 2 specific flights or not (Qantas included), which is quite common on first legs.

News about upcoming TARA5 application this year

LAOAG CITY, Oct. 20 (PIA) — Get ready for season 5 of the reality game show The Amazing Race Asia as it goes to Ilocos Norte.

The municipalities of Burgos, Bangui and Pagudpud in Ilocos Norte will be the show’s trail for season 5 which will be aired in next year’s episode.

The US-based reality show chose the seven great wonders Ilocos Norte for the utilization of the shows’ venue.
The Amazing Race Asia 5

The Amazing Race Asia Season 5 goes to Ilocos Norte
These spots include the Kaangrian falls, Avis falls, The Cape Bojedour which is thehighest light house in Asia, the famous Kapurpurawan rock formation all from Burgos, the Patapat bridge, the beaches of Pagudpud, and the first windmills in Asia located in Bangui.

Mayor Chrisente Garcia of Burgos said, “the team of the show were mesmerized with the tourist spots in our place and decided to shoot the episodes of the show here, upon the initiative of our provincial governor.”

“This is good because this will also be part of promoting tourism in our place,” he added.

The seven stop-overs in the place compliment the component and the game orientation of the show.

Basically, the structure of the race is for the teams to travel to different locations by following the route information, perform some various tasks, and checking in at the Pit Stop.

Teams normally complete all the tasks and check in at the Pit Stop before they are eliminated. Occasionally, on an elimination leg, if all other teams have checked in and the last team is very far behind, Route Markers may instruct them to go directly to the Pit Stop without completing the rest of the leg.

Milagros Gonzales, Chief of Department of Tourism Field office in Ilocos Norte, together with the mayor of Burgos, is currently having their field inspection to places where the show will commence.

The participants for the competition will be arriving this December to start the race. (ANL/CJD-PIA 1 Ilocos Norte)

Hi everyone :) I'm a newbie even though I've been following these threads for awhile...Thought It was about time I got off my butt and joined up!   

Anyway...It says on the first line..."Get ready for season 5 of the reality game show The Amazing Race Asia.." I think they are calling for applicants for season 5 of the Asian version...makes sense..they are up to season 4.

They can take a flight from Australia to Manila. Then take a domestic flight from Manila to Laoag or take a 12-13 hour bus.

I hypothesize the following would make suitable first desinations:
Auckland
Christchurch
Thailand
China
Japan
Fiji
Malaysia
Hawaii
Singapore
Taiwan
Vietnam
Los Angeles
San Fransisco


However, I would expect New Zealand and the USA to be destinations closer to the finish, because of the high amount of direct flights from these places that land in Australia in the late morning hours.

Hoping that the first leg is to New Zealand then to the Phillipines, if this was to happen the Race would have to start within the next few days unless the first two legs are in the Phillipines.

Also I hope they are going to India this time.

A London stopover could be possible especially if they're flying out to Cuba there may be more connecting flights from Heathrow?
And last year the cast was released around April the 10th with a May 17th premiere. So if they're aiming for around the same time I would say potentially next week or early week after we should see the teams.

"still a chance" is in fact a remote one. The start is likely to be somewhere in Asia or Oceania to allow teams first leg easy access to the Philippines. In fact, our timeline has it in Sydney. The finish has been rumored to be in the Brisbane and Fraser Island area. That's a long way from Paris or London, as you who live in Sydney certainly know. A stopover in London on the way to Cuba is a possibility.

It's just speculation at the moment but Channel 7 often do things at the last minute cause they wait to see what other channels are showing on the same timeslot. I think in the US isnt known well in advance but its different for Aus.

Also we have a competition for a sponsor for the show that starts on April 30, so it can't be too far off now either way.

Well this week, in the absence of TAR, they have a Criminal Minds double episode showing. That's my second favourite show, so you can imagine my excitement when I saw it. :lol: And then I discovered it was two old episodes! :gaah:

However, it is definitely possible that new Criminal Minds could be the thing that pushes TAR back to 10:30pm from April 18th onwards, because that airs on Wednesdays usually in the past.

I hope TAR Aus is on, but to me it seems unlikely, as that date is just two weeks away and they haven't even showed any advertisements other than a meat pie, the Eiffel Tower and the Mona Lisa turning green and gold. :stare :stare :stare

Just speculating, of course! :duno:

April 18th as a possible start seems unlikely. They haven't revealed the cast yet and that usually happens a month before the Race premiere. Or maybe they're just doing things in a different way for this year.

I think it may be possible, only because we can't use the first season as a real guideline as it was the first time the series was premiering so they probably gave it more time for promotion to get Australian audiences used to the idea that we were getting our own version of the race (and they did start promoting it during the Aus Open last year).
Perhaps they think audiences won't need as much time to readjust to the show coming back on, but I would say that if the cast isn't released this week then the 18th is too early, but the following week or the first week of May seems more probable.
I don't think we'd be able to get a clear sense of 7's way of promoting shows and predicting their airdates until at least a few seasons of the show have run.

EDIT: Though on a side note, a lot of the potential casts' facebooks have recently increased in security or have disappeared altogether so this may be a sign.

Bumped: The Amazing Race
By David Knox on April 3, 2012 / 
There’s no airing of The Amazing Race this week due to CBS’s broadcast of the Academy of Country Music Awards (yawn!), but the show resumes here on Seven next week, April 11.

However from Wednesday April 18, it moves to 10:30pm.

Could Seven be launching The Amazing Race Australia before it?

Last year the show was on Monday night, but I think Monday looks unlikely again for this year, because I think Australia's Got Talent is starting on that night, and Revenge is there as well, and I assume Seven doesn't want TARAus to air at 9:30pm or later... :duno:

Hopefully the speculation about Wednesday nights turns out to be true, although if that were the case, TARAus would still be at 9:30pm at night, which isn't an ideal timeslot if Seven wants a lot more viewers... :duno:

The Amazing Race Australia

Join Grant Bowler, as 22 Aussies get ready to conquer the world for the second time when The Amazing Race Australia returns.

12 teams stand ready to embark on the adventure of a lifetime but only 11 will make it past the starting line.

The adventure will see teams crisscross the globe, unsure of what challenges lie ahead. What they do know is that the race will be fastpaced and unrelenting. It will test their ability to work together as a team, challenge their personal relationships and provide life-changing experiences. Along the way they’ll confront fears, develop confidence, experience new cultures and make lifelong friends.

Coming soon.

I could not have said it better myself.

*Respect*

I'm still waiting for my time on the amazing race US, and if that happened to me, I'd probably go berzerk. I'd be fine being the first eliminated, at least I get to experience it to some extent. But this is just overly cruel and it.... ADDS....NOTHING!

I know what you mean but it is for ratings and nothing works better than a shock right at the start. Though I would prefer if at least the 12th team were eliminated midway through the first leg at least so they got to hop on 1 flight (like Bilal and Sa'eed on the US race seasons ago who were eliminated in China). And I guess with this twist at the start it will definitely make all teams much more competitive and perhaps a bit more cutthroat than the first season contestants?

Post by: apskip on April 11, 2012, 03:56:15 PM
Any viewer of a majority of Amazing Race U.S. seasons knows that the first episode allows some slack because there are always long delays at airports before either the first flight departure or the second flight departure. So teams get complacent and say to themselves "Why rush?" if they are not likely to make the first group. The elimination at the start line fulfills the purpose of keeping all teams on their toes and not assuming that they will qualify for any flight. Now, this same mentality has been transferred from Bertram van Munster to Michael McKay for ARAus.

It is perfectly logical and rational. Eric and Lisa were given the unusual option of not going to Elimination Station. Billel and Saeed were sent to Elimination Station with a mid-first-leg-elimination , which they no doubt enjoyed for about 2.5 weeks. Neither team impressed me as going far in their Amazing Race if by some miracle they were given a second chance to do that first leg in their Amazing Race. Anyone who thinks that any Amazing Race should not be doing start line or mid-first-leg eliminations should not put themselves through the agony of watching that race because Van Munster and McKay disagree with you.

I don't happen to like YIELDs, but I have to live with them to get the rest of the package.

And yet there are some people that don't realize that that the movie was based on reality. That's sad. Something else that's sad is that the teams still haven't been announced, and there haven't been as many previews as last season.

'Win flights around the world plus 5 grand cash'

If pump is already has the promo stock on the shelves plus the fact that TV Tonight have done an artical on the start line elimation( http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2012/04/amazing-race-australia-spoiler.html )  equels 7 relesing an airdate in the next week or 2.

Does anybody know how long the Titanic series is, and for how many weeks is it going to air? I suppose that TARA 2 will air after that, hold it any longer and people will start asking whats going on!

Also, I was having a look at the correlation between the last filming date and the first air date for the US season. The average gap is about 6 months, although a few seasons had a shorter gap - Based on this we could say that the gap should be a maximum of 7 months, which even seems a bit long for me - Depending on the titanic run we could be seeing the race very soon, as filming reportedly ended on 13th of December - That means that we should be seeing it in May, or at worst early June!!!!

Cant wait, should be a great season - Even though im a 15 year old aussie i still love the american version a little bit more than the australian one - In the meantime, go Mark & Bopper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Intrasting theory

Not sure if its accurate but I think that it could work out. Also, if TARA 2 replaces titanic in the same timeslot, it would be followed by TAR 20... would get the viewers up for the last few episodes!

Based on history my theory should be pretty good, fingers crossed!

The average gap is about 6 months, although a few seasons had a shorter gap - Based on this we could say that the gap should be a maximum of 7 months, which even seems a bit long for me - Depending on the titanic run we could be seeing the race very soon, as filming reportedly ended on 13th of December - That means that we should be seeing it in May, or at worst early June!!!!

Cant wait, should be a great season - Even though im a 15 year old aussie i still love the american version a little bit more than the australian one - In the meantime, go Mark & Bopper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Intrasting theory

Not sure if its accurate but I think that it could work out. Also, if TARA 2 replaces titanic in the same timeslot, it would be followed by TAR 20... would get the viewers up for the last few episodes!

Based on history my theory should be pretty good, fingers crossed!

7 did start TAR AU while TAR 18 was still airing. Oddily on different nights and on different channels TAR AU was on Mondays at 8:30 on the main channel (7) while TAR 18 was on Sundays at 6:30 before the week hiatius and Wednesdays at 7:30 on 7 mate after the hiatius.

True, but it was a massive error for 7 to put one of the best seasons on 7 mate!!! loved it so much i bought a silly set top box thing and stayed up late to watch it! i think 7 have realized their error, and I think it would add to ratings, and general interest, of the american season... would also ensure some good first up ratings for the next US season, as people would have seen it straight after the aussie one, and probably liked it! they would then tune into the US one, and hopefully this would lead 7 to put it in a resonable, 8 or 9.30 timeslot!

The Amazing Race Australia

Join Grant Bowler, as 22 Aussies get ready to conquer the world for the second time when The Amazing Race Australia returns.

12 teams stand ready to embark on the adventure of a lifetime but only 11 will make it past the starting line.

The adventure will see teams crisscross the globe, unsure of what challenges lie ahead. What they do know is that the race will be fastpaced and unrelenting. It will test their ability to work together as a team, challenge their personal relationships and provide life-changing experiences. Along the way they’ll confront fears, develop confidence, experience new cultures and make lifelong friends.

Coming soon.

http://www.tvnz2012.co.nz/detail.php?id=181 (http://www.tvnz2012.co.nz/detail.php?id=181)

For what it's worth, the line about 12 teams being cut down to 11 has been removed. Either TVNZ is in strife for exposing the twist before Channel 7 could, or they've made an error.


This... however remains on another media, and yet they make a speculation about the 11 teams who passed the starting line...  :ascared

Amazing Race Australia spoiler
By David Knox on April 13, 2012 / Filed Under News 5

Spoiler: TVNZ is already promoting the second season of The Amazing Race Australia as “Coming soon.”

“Join Grant Bowler, as 22 Aussies get ready to conquer the world for the second time when The Amazing Race Australia returns.

“12 teams stand ready to embark on the adventure of a lifetime but only 11 will make it past the starting line.”

That either means one team is eliminated in a starting line challenge, or someone has an almighty accident before they can even get going. I’m tipping it’s the former.


Seven is promoting the show too, but there’s no start date yet with Titanic in the Wednesday timeslot next week.

http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2012/04/amazing-race-australia-spoiler.html


It's their speculation, and should not be taken into consideration I guess, I'm just sharing what I read.. ;D

You missed some too! It's Woolloomooloo  :lol3:

Late Edit: This is purely speculation, but I'm just going to throw it out there and say that there still could be a 12th team as reported by the Courier Mail (who would have a press kit with all the info on the teams) but instead of being eliminated at the starting line, they are added after the starting line.

Sorry for double posting, but I just realised that the photo was taken at Mrs. Macquarie's Chair. Garden Island doesn't have a grassy patch that faces out to the Opera House and could produce that perspective.

Here is where that photo was probably taken: http://g.co/maps/6fs9e

But whether it's the starting line remains to be seen.

This is a far-out hypothesis, but I seem to remember something on either an Amazing Race or Amazing Race Asia where a task was to maneuver a car out of what essentially was a puzzle. The screenshot marked 0:38 looks like it might be that sort of task.

7 has revealed that they’re introducing two new twists.

- Must vote U-turn: The teams must all vote for one other team, the team that receives the most votes must complete a U-turn. Who voted for whom is revealed to the teams. This twist was also used in the second Israeli season, and appeared in most legs.

- Salvage pass: A never before seen twist. Will supposedly ‘shake up the first leg’. I’m assuming it will be awarded to the winners of the first leg instead of an express pass.

Also from the above link:

"This year’s race will be longer, tougher and even more challenging as teams vie for the $250,000 prize. Teams will travel more than 65,000 kilometres across 4 continents. The route includes a mix of iconic sites and some very surprising destinations never before seen on any version of the Race."

Cuba??

Post by: JordanJones123 on April 25, 2012, 05:50:54 AM
This salvage pass thing is said to shake up the first leg of the race, right?

Salvage means to 'retrieve or save something from loss or destruction'...At first I'm thinking, this has something to do with saving a team from being eliminated... But then i remembered that it only shakes up the first leg.

Then there were reports that there was 12 teams, but one was eliminated at the starting line, which is obviously in the first leg...

My theory/question here is, are the 2 linked?
Title: Re: TAR AUS 2: Pre-Race News and Speculation*includes PRE-RACE Promos and Caps!*
Post by: KennyD on April 25, 2012, 06:52:44 AM
I think that the twelve team rumour has been debunked, and only came about due to TVNZ's mix up. Since we've been shown eleven teams standing at the starting line, I think it's unlikely that there is a twelfth unknown team still.

Regarding the salvage pass, the line about it shaking up the first leg sounds like it's nothing more than 7's hype. I think the 'shake up' will simply be that the winners of the first leg receive it, yet will be able to play it later. I too think it may be that it can be used to avoid elimination despite finishing last up until a particular leg (~ final 5ish). The only other thing I can think it may do is allow a team to skip a U-turn, but in that case; I think they may have given it a different name.

Both teams shown in INDIA! Doing a driving test?, Roadblock I assume - team member in back seat and driving instructor in passenger seat with windshield mounted camera.

The promo of the workmates - Paul & Steve - aired again during TAR tonight. If you notice in those caps towards the end of it, you can see that one of them is driving the car and the other teammate is seated at the back, with a non-racer sitting beside them. And there's also Kym driving and Donna sitting at the back with a non-racer in the front-passenger seat.

Based on this, I would speculate that we might have a Roadblock task in India which somewhat resembles the Roadblock from TAR10 in Chennai, where teams had to obtain their Indian driver's license.

Just my speculation, and I came to that conclusion because of the fact that they are driving with a non-racer (presumably a driving instructor) sitting beside them. :tup:

Once again, the Aussies have done it! What a great intro. The green screen effects are pretty obvious but it still looks fantastic.

I'm interested to see how the voting U-turn turns out in this season, because it sounds like a terrible idea..

well I feel like teams will u-turn Paul and Steve (aka Buffet?) all the time. Paul seems rude to other contestants and actually he is kinda doucebag according to his teammate.

This is not the way to analysis  the intro in this season!
Compare it to the first season intro and you will find out they only change couple scenes!
These scenes are the new-added scenes:
(http://i1233.photobucket.com/albums/ff397/farhan_zouly/TARAUS/caps5.jpg)
They changed Hong Kong scene to this bridge in Britain/Vancouver?

(http://i1233.photobucket.com/albums/ff397/farhan_zouly/TARAUS/caps7.jpg)
They delete the Big Ben scene and add the Great Wall scene

Also, They switch the arrangement of different scene after The Colosseum.
Beside these and different teams, nothing changed.

Grant Bowler's interview

Transcribed by ZouLy



"I'm over the moon for another season..

We've got further in season 2, we cover 65,000 KM which is a fair span, four continents, and we go places that nobody's ever gone before on the race.. not even the American race.. so often you see the race in Southeast Asia or you know, kinda of set piece places that are designed to be difficult for people, but from travelling a lot myself, I know that often the most difficult places away you think everything operates the same, people speak the same language, they kinda do the same thing, and you can really get tripped up because the systems are just slightly different.

Different after you've seen them are the same , but when you actually trying and excersie anything you come horribly and stuck.

There are places where the environment against them, and some of the challenges having an inherent degree of risk about them
and some of the geography of the actual places and the climates of the places that we go to this season in particular are extremely harsh, very much extreme of each other and test their physical limit enormously,

There's a couple of places, particularly in this last season that I hadn't been written up in my wishlist in life and was spectacular..

you've get to see what you see in the van, in the bus, in a donkey cart, or the kayak that you're using to get where you need to go..

But we do see a lot of stuff .... "

Ummm.... only 1 province of Canada speaks French as its main language, and that is Quebec. The other provinces, including British Columbia (where Vancouver is) and Alberta (where Banff is) speak English as the main language. Believe me, I have been to Ontario a ton of times, and I have never encountered French. Just a little bit on the borders of Quebec.

You are wrong. Only Quebec and parts of New Brunswick speak French the rest is predominantly English (including Banff and Vancouver). Trust me I am Canadian!  :lol:

Confessional from Philippines Airlines...


Quote
Amazing Race to the Philippines
Wednesday, 30 May 2012
    
Amazing Race Australia 2012
    
Philippine Airlines will kick off the 2012 series of Channel 7’s popular The Amazing Race Australia tomorrow night, after the airline’s Sydney staff raced around the clock last November to get the first challenge underway.

The program sent almost 65 contestants and crew to the Philippines - the first stop in the global challenge which will see them race around the world for $250,000 prize money.

Transferring the group was a challenge in itself, with the airline receiving a last minute booking for 20 return airfares, 45 one-way fares and more than 500 kilograms of camera gear.

But the team got away smoothly, before touching down in Manila to face a tough challenge at a village fiesta and the most exhausting race to the pit stop yet.

The episode airs on Channel 7 tonight at 9pm.

My point is- Isn't there some sort of restriction for people who have been to Cuba in entering the US?

No. (Not that I can think of anyways)

As far as I know (and I am a U.S. citizen), it only applies to U.S. citizens. Like I cannot go to Cuba. If the teams went to Cuba, they could, in theory, connect somewhere else (like Canada) before coming to the U.S. There aren't any direct flights, though, so they would have to connect through either Canada or somewhere in Latin America.

Just going to Cuba doesn't mean the Aussies can't come here. It just makes the flights a bit more tricky, I guess.

I think we can now put any new previews or vids or comments in either the relevent team, media, or episode threads from here on?

There is NO more PRE-RACE news, unless we need to comment on what has gone before!

Many thanks everyone!!
