Title: TAR 19 EP 1 "Kindness of Strangers" (Taipei)
Post by: georgiapeach on September 01, 2011, 03:08:24 PM
THE WORLD IS WAITING!

Press:

This season, the multi-Emmy Award-winning series sends 11 new Teams on a Race around the globe, making first time visits to exotic locations such as Indonesia, Malawi, Belgium and Denmark.  Along the way, Teams will travel through four continents and 20 cities and cover nearly 40,000 miles.

 

Teams will be tested early and often and met with a new penalty called the "Hazard," which will impact one Team's future on the Race right from the starting line.  The global journey sets off from the foothills of Southern California where the Teams' problem solving abilities will be put to the test as they search for clues to their first destination, Taipei, Taiwan. Teams fortunate enough to survive the first leg will find themselves amidst an 8th Century Buddhist temple in Indonesia, riding elephants through the rain forests of Thailand, and racing for their lives when they discover they're facing the series first ever Double Elimination.

 

This season's cast includes a pair of Olympic snowboarders, twin sisters, an ex-NFL tight end, flight attendants, the youngest person to ever sail around the world alone, two winners of SURVIVOR, Ethan Zohn and Jenna Morasca, and many more.

 

This fall marks the 10 year anniversary of THE AMAZING RACE, which originally premiered on Sept 5, 2001.

There appears to be the letter "X" inside this umbrella. 

Maybe the they have to find certain letters to spell out something like "TPE" which is the airport code for Taipei.  :duno:

^I think you're right; from the release: "The global journey sets off from the foothills of Southern California where the Teams' problem solving abilities will be put to the test as they search for clues to their first destination, Taipei, Taiwan."

And there seem to be a lot of tasks in this episode. The starting line, the billboard, the roadblock at the temple, the Hazard for one team, the jumping at the mall, and the dragon boat.

The pictures I'm finding of that globe shaped building are labeled both Globe Mall and Core Pacific City Mall. So, I think both refer to the same place.

Correct, and it definitely has scenes from Episode 2 because the Twins in the taxi looking quite scared are wearing clothes from what they wore in Episode 2, and Cindy, Ethan and Bill of Bill and Cathi are all seen in the promo @ Jomblang Caves, Cindy and Ethan are rapelling, Bill is climbing up a ladder of some kind.

It's very interesting that teams need to search for clues to their first destination among hundreds of umbrellas, because Taiwan is  famous for umbrella production in 1960~80s. There are still lots of umbrellas made in Taiwan now.

Wanpei? ???

Good observation! Wow!

I imagine hearing this:
PHIL (Voiceover): Teams must figure out their next destination. To do that, they may find the need to scour all the umbrellas stacked on the shelves for "clues" that will refer to their first destination. Teams that have an eye for detail will notice the letters "WANPEI" posted above the racks. Once they think they know the answer (adding TAI to taiWAN and taiPEI), they will be given flights to Taipei, Taiwan.

I was looking at the Core Pacific City Living Mall on Google Earth and found some good pictures of the exterior and interior of the Mall. It's a very striking building. I thought I'd post them here to give us a better feel for the place. Also the interior pictures give a little more of a feel for how high the bungee jump might be. It looks like it could be 6 or 7 stories.

You are correct, these pix are Core Pacific City Living Mall, the name in Mandarin is "京華城 Jing Hua Cheng",
and not much locals know that english name called "Core Pacific City Living Mall", normally just know it called "Living Mall".
http://web01.livingmall.com.tw/page.aspx?pgid=cp04 (http://web01.livingmall.com.tw/page.aspx?pgid=cp04)

And the bungee floor is at 10th floor, and it's about 62m,
the bungee jumping usually open in the weekend, but it stopped the service since 2006, what a shame...

here is some video clips on youtube, you might interested...

It's definitely not a Ferrari and I'm very sure it is a 2012 Ford Mustang. I wouldn't be surprised to see that as a sponsorship. It's a very popular car in America right now.

On escalators in Taiwan, people generally stand on the left side to clear a path for people who are in a hurry to walk. Our racers should find this helpful.  :tup:

Zhongxiao Fuxing station and Ximen station are both on the blue line for the subway, so racers won't need to transfer to a different line. Ximen is four stops away from Zhongxiao Fuxing. If Ximending is the next stop, then Exit 6 at Ximen station is the closest one.

People usually stand on the right side, and people in a hurry could use the left-side path to walk. You might get the direction wrong. :) However, this only happens in Taipei, especially in MRT system in Taipei.

I love the fact that some teams still head to the airport newsstands to look for travel guides while waiting for their flight.
Good habits never die on this show. :)

On escalators in Taiwan, people generally stand on the left side to clear a path for people who are in a hurry to walk. Our racers should find this helpful.  :tup:

People usually stand on the right side, and people in a hurry could use the left-side path to walk. You might get the direction wrong. :) However, this only happens in Taipei, especially in MRT system in Taipei.

I definitely meant to type right instead of left! :lol: And yes, I was thinking of the MRT system in Taipei. Guess I wasn't too awake when I typed all of that.  :-[

"And part of the excitement that comes with traveling to new places is being able to share those experiences with our fans."

           THE AMAZING RACE sends 11 teams on a trek around the world.  Each Team is comprised of two people who have a pre-existing relationship with one another.  At every destination, each Team competes in a series of challenges - some mental and some physical - and when the tasks have been completed, they learn their next destination.  Teams who are farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning $1 million.

           Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman, Elise Doganieri and Mark Vertullo are the executive producers for Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Earthview Inc. in association with ABC Studios and Amazing Race Productions. THE AMAZING RACE was created by Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri.

In the caves in Ep2 they are carrying this mask.

That's the second sportscar we see, another mustang I think. So there must be a task with them.

There are 4 cases:

1. It's a contestant hobby
2. It's a reward for winning the first leg
3. It's a route info task
4. or it's a Hazard task

3. It's a route info task
4. It's a Hazard task

I'd say all of those are likely except for number two because of the Express Pass. But that's JMO.

Awesome job banzai!! :jumpy:


The mustangs have been driving me nuts...everything in all the previews can be localized to either the first or second episode...so where do these fit in?

I think a HAZARD task in Taipei or Yogyakarta may be the best explanation.

What do you all think about this?? There is a LOT of wheel spinning in our previews...


DRIFTING: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drifting_(motorsport (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drifting_(motorsport))

Quote
Drifting is refers to a driving technique and to a motorsport where the driver intentionally over steers, causing loss of traction in the rear wheels through turns, while maintaining vehicle control and a high exit speed. A car is drifting when the rear slip angle is greater than the front slip angle prior to the corner apex, and the front wheels are pointing in the opposite direction to the turn (e.g. car is turning left, wheels are pointed right or vice versa), and the driver is controlling these factors. As a motor sport, professional drifting competitions are held worldwide.

From the number of vids on YouTube about this in Taiwan...seems like a sport known there...and maybe popular?

I have not heard popular and legal places for people to do drifting in Taipei. Its loud noise might be infamous, so people who like this can just do it at the parking lot in mountains. There are fewer cars and fewer people at night, so they can use the parking lot to do drifting. However, I don't think it's legal.

Thanks! It probably makes more sense for this to be in Yogyakarta then...

Or maybe the drifting was used for introduction/spiel purposes? Like in TAR 15. :duno:

Maybe, but I doubt they would use brand new Ford Mustangs for that. If they did, they'd surely have to mention them by name. And if they did that without having anything to do with the race, that'd be a pretty big sellout.

There are a lot of videos in You tube about drifting in Indonesia. They mainly use the Lippo Karawaci street circuit in Tangerang, which is about 40Km west of Jakarta but very far from Yogyakarta. 
But that is an orginised circuit with security bars, spectator seats etc. The images we have so far with the Mustangs look like a normal road.

here is a video of this circuit.

There are also slalom races in Yogyakarta but again in this video the environment doesn't much a lot.

But no, I think the car thing will be "most likely" in Yogyakarta. I can see it from road structure (you can see from all promos, it's  on mountains-forest area, which makes sense, because they first stop was in Kaliurang, it's one of mountains area in Yogyakarta). It could came after they visit Bukit Indah hotel or after they had a roadblock.
I think it supposes to be discussed on leg 2's thread :)

Well, I guess we have TWO options:

If it is the HAZARD task, it has to be done before the first Pitstop check in...so in Taipei.

If it is the SPEEDBUMP, then it will have to be done in Jogja.

Post by: Prophet on September 20, 2011, 12:55:02 PM
Yes, I thought the Hazard was the penalty for completing the Starting Line Task last and the last team to check in on the first leg received a Speed Bump, which appeared in the next leg.

And Prama said the Mustang is in Indonesia and someone else said they didn't think it was in Taiwan.

But why focus on it so much if it is just a Speed Bump? I think it is a sponsor RI for leg two and the winner will win two of them. Like the Austria leg of last season.

It's from the same premiere promo (approx. 0:44). On closer inspection, though, the light seems to come from one of the windows rather than a building edge. A reflection, probably? In any event, Chateau's mark (people running past Phil) is the most reliable gauge. Practice speeches and set-up shots can distort the meaning of sun-shots and wristwatches.

Because of the architectural style of Chinese Buddhist culture, I really don't think the bright light behind and to the right of Phil (from our perspective) is a direct image of the sun; I'm not 100% sure it can be said to be a reflection of direct sunlight. It could be a bright light source set up for filming, or used at the temple complex for illumination, though.

This almost seems like the latest local start time ever for the beginning of the Race; I'm assuming that is a late afternoon sun, but if it is not, someone please correct me. (Also means the teams would have "fun" driving westbound into the sunset to get to LAX, since the sky appears to be clear that day.)

After rewatching that video and seeing those three caps I am quite sure that flash is a transition effect used in that promo.

In peach's third cap there you can see how the flash is still there in the overhead shot.

But if you'll notice, the 'Wanpei' signboard is not yet open at that time. Maybe it is a practice run? ???

Wow. Great eye!

Same cap, closeup.

It did look like they slowed down as they passed Phil in that shot :P and Bill and Cathi are running on seperate sides of Phil, but when it moves to an overhead shot, Cathi and Bill link hands and run to Phil's left. Very good TAR, very sneaky  :lol:

I noticed that there are so many social tasks in the first leg. Makes me think that the producers want to test teams' social abilities. Since it seemed they restricted helping locals in the past seasons, teams would not expect it.

Something I noticed at the very beginning is the return of the editing effecct affectionally known as the speeding-up, "drunken cameraman", TM MIss Alli in 2001.

It disappeared several years ago, and has only been rarely seen on TAR since, until tonight.  It was quite noticeable during the opening sequence where Phil is standing at the shoreline Point and telling us about the teams being brought to the start line.

It's a fun effect, uniquely TAR, and I hope it's used more often from now on.

I want to throw in that Bill and Cathi went WAY off course in Taipei. I'm frequently in the central area so recognized all the areas they wondered off to.

They were seen in:
- Shin Kong Building
- Taipei Bus Station
- Taipei Train Station
- Presidential Palace

It may seem they went on a mile treck in a circle from Ximending.

Did anyone else notice at the boat task one of the teams (I believe the snowboarders) had their clue showing at it looked yellow. I am guessing everyone chose the same detour so it was edited of the episode.

I could be wrong though.  :duno:

No, it was definitely a Route Info, you can see it clearly when Ernie & Cindy open it. The yellow is just the envelope.
I guess we could call the dragon boats task an Active Route Marker.

I think the Core Pacific City Living Mall has to be regular route marker after roadblock. We can see a clue showing "Core Pacific Living Mall"  in Chinese on Jennifer's hand and there are envelops right next to the "Hazard" task.

Post by: georgiapeach on September 26, 2011, 08:41:03 AM
Multiple teams were seen going in and out of the Mall...but fast.

And there was MUCH more to the phone task that was edited out.

As we reported in spoilers, teams had to FIRST get a phone card in order to use the phone.

That meant either figuring out where to go buy one, or asking a local for help. Many FERNS did help from reports from the site. But all that added another layer to the task to make it more difficult.

Me too.  But I think the passport was lost in the dark in Zev's season.  This one was lost in broad daylight.

I think you are wrong. It was a general task. They had a ROADBLOCK, which seldom happens on any FIRST Amazing Race leg, and compensated by having no DETOUR this leg.

I'm not sure about this season yet. I didn't get the feeling of passion I've had for most of the other seasons. I'll have to catch it on a rebroadcast and watch again.

After 4 months of waiting... The Amazing Race is back on screen! Wooh!

Ernie and Cindy - My favourite team thus far. They give me a Meghan and Cheyne / Jill and Thomas vibe. They seem pretty likeable from first impressions, but somehow I have a feeling they'll end up finishing the race in third place. But for now, I'm rooting for them and I hope they continue to work well together.

Jeremy and Sandy - I thought that there might be some squabbles from this team, especially Jeremy yelling at Sandy. But they impressed me this episode, they were competitive and cooperative. But we'll have to see what the remaining of this season does to them.

Justin and Jennifer - Justin kinda annoys me with his intensity and occasional yelling at his sister. I feel that this will be a very competent team, but I'm not sure I'm a fan of their bickerings.

Ethan and Jenna - I'm rooting for them for now solely based on what both of them have gone through on Survivor, and as a couple. I don't know if they'll last on the race, but they might have a really inspiring story for the viewers.

Amani and Marcus - Another strong, competitive team. I'm not a fan of theirs as yet, though. They seemed pretty mild this episode.

Laurence and Zac - There wasn't much from them this episode, but they're a team that I might potentially root for. They seemed to work quite well together this episode.

Andy and Tommy - This team is totally BJ and Tyler for me. Their olympic experience might come in handy this race and I feel that they could go far, but I doubt I'll ever be a fan of them.

Ron and Bill - I kinda like these guys, they're nice to each other and just do their own thing on the race. But once again, we'll have to see.

Kaylani and Lisa - Wow, wow, wow! Losing a passport on the very first leg of the race? I was shocked. But that was a climatic moment of the episode I must say. I expected them to find it at the gas station without problem, but the passport seemed to disappear into thin air. That airport meltdown was pretty exciting. And then some kind soul delivers it to them because of advice given on Twitter! Double, triple wow! This race is getting so advanced that Twitter managed to save a team's life. I'm really amazed. And I'm pretty impressed by this team. Despite having to complete a Hazard, their position did not change at all. And I marvelled at their efficiency in completing the Hazard. They did not even hesitate doing the bungee jump. They MIGHT actually go pretty far, but once again, I'm not a fan of their bickerings.

Lisa and Marie - Kami and Karli version 2, without a doubt. Twins, young, and clueless. For the first episode at least. They might do a Kami and Karli and last to the Final 5, which would be a huge shocker. But for now, I'm not optimistic about this team...

Bill and Cathi - I love it that they remained so calm despite knowing that they were in last. I love Cathi's positivity and her appreciation of the little things around her. I'm glad they got another chance to remain in the race, but I wonder if they'll get past the 3rd or 4th leg.

A decent start to the race, but I somehow feel that the teams this season are not as likeable as the previous two seasons. It feels like another Season 16 for me. But it's just an initial feeling I guess. Can't wait to see how the season plays out!

I could be wrong though.  :duno:
I think you are wrong. It was a general task. They had a ROADBLOCK, which seldom happens on any FIRST Amazing Race leg, and compensated by having no DETOUR this leg.

Season 14, 15, 16, 17 and 18 had roadblocks....

A growing theory:
They had to re-shoot the drive off after it was relayed that a passport was lost.
They called in a crew, note the big white Ford van that is suddenly in place where there was a family van seconds earlier.
They used somebody else's passport (crew member), it's not Kaylani's as noted by someone else here earlier.
Shadows indicate it was 10 to 30 min later

More to share:

When Kaylani & Lisa park at the gas station they are just inches away from Ryan's green car.

It was probably rather difficult to exit their Explorer.  We do see Lisa squeezing out.

Kaylani may have had trouble when she got out too.

Kaylani gets back into the Explorer from the righthand side when they leave.  Had she gotten in from the lefthand side she would have seen the fallen passport.

But it was such a squeeze that she went for the righthand door.

REDSKEVIN,
You are correct if focusing on the recent past, as all Amazing Races from 14 forward have a ROADBLOCK. as you indicated. However, no ROADBLOCK in the first leg was a norm for most of the earlier Amazing Races:
2
3
5
6
7
8
9
11
13
It's 50% none and 50% one ROADBLOCK for the first 18 races. That is not "seldom" as I thought.

I have to say the episode was very good, if a little rushed, and I am all for these teams! And also, I think AR is one of the least staged Reality shows, actually, I mean sometimes they have to stretch the truth to get the shots they need (like the passport shot) but I truly believe that it is not to a huge extent, most is not, and is very much based on what happens to teams in the race!

Yeah, even some of the other more reputable shows are more open to "rigging" by production than TAR. It's one of the only shows that throws people out in the real world and is unpredictable in circumstances.

A second passport video.

For those wondering...the reason it took a little time for Ryan to leave for the airport...it was because when he was contacted he was right in the middle of showing and selling his car.

When he grasped the urgency involved, he left that abruptly, ran home, took a few seconds to grab a clean shirt, and a friend to drive with him in case there was no time to park at LAX, and then rushed to LAX.

No conspiracy. No rigging. Just a VERY nice man willing to put his real life on hold to help a stranger. TAR was blessed that the passport finder was Ryan.

This must be correct. If I were a cameraman and I noticed a contestant had dropped her passport, and I know this is going to make a great storyline for TV, getting a shot of the passport would be the least of my worries. If the cameraman spent even a couple of moments pointing his camera at the floor, the chance of one of the girls noticing and getting her passport back would be too great a risk.

We know the editing team aren't afraid to mix around shots (or in this case, stage them), but if it helps with the story, I think its harmless.

I think weihen is right. We see Ernie and Cindy take a clue from one of the boatmen's 'pouch' that he's wearing. And then after the boat task, we see a clue being handed to them..

YEAH, it's just a lie. In Taipei, there phone number has only 8 digits. As far as I remebered, it's like 27XX-XXXX in the clue. (I saw it when Sandy asked me for helping her to get the phone card.)

When the filming crew are rehersal(?) on the day before the teams come, they have set a cluebox there. However, they just didn't like it and decided to put it on the drummer in red & yellow. Maybe the crew knew that there are some TAR fans in Taipei and didn't want us to notice that.

Actually most team spent a lot of time looking for the billboard in XiMenDing, maybe at least 30 minutes. There are many exits (6 or 7) at the XiMenDing station, so many teams didn't know where to go.

When I went to DaJia riverside park, Phil and the staff were shooting for the "dragon boat task". I can't believe I can see Phil in person!!!!!!

What is this at the Mall in Taipei? Looks like the clues the other teams had to get there? :duno: They seem to be editing out RI clues this season.

Is that a pull a number? Seems too small for a clue...but great eye!

They are definitely clues, I spotted them too. Can I ask though, why clueboxes are not in this season? Are they just having a break or are they gone as well? I wish they would slow the race down more. It has become very fast paced (I watched a bit of season 3 last night, and oh how things have changed!)

Adding these here for posterity...

First 2 were taken during set up; maybe they were still deciding?
