if the people running down charlotte street were the amazing race, then my guess would be that the starting line is the City Botanic Gardens....  :ascared

but if it isnt then its probably just a local race  :'(

Not disagreeing, but statements like this are vastly improved by a link to the game info or other expanded information.

If we assume that that Legazpi is to be visited on the 19th, and we assume that the race hasn't started yet, I think we can guess that teams will be flying from Australia to the Philippines. I'm fairly certain that Manila is the only direct gateway from Australia, so here are the direct flights for the next couple of days.

Sydney
17 Nov - Qantas 19 - 11:40>19:00 (Stops in Brisbane)
18 Nov - Philippine 210 - 12:10>17:20

Brisbane
17 Nov - Qantas 19 - 13:10>19:00

Darwin
18 Nov - Jetstar 79 - 19:00>21:45

Melbourne
No direct flights

As you can see, Philippines is not a very well connected country, so I'm surprised that it is likely to be our first leg. It seems like teams might have to take connecting flights..
Title: Re: TAR Australia 2 SPECULATION and DISCUSSION of Spoilers
Post by: georgiapeach on November 16, 2011, 08:24:35 AM
If it is Sydney on the 17th they will need to connect via HK or Singapore.

I like this one:

 
4:25 pm Depart Sydney (SYD)
Arrive Manila (MNL) 3:50 am  +1 day  Thu 17-Nov
Duration: 14hr 25mn    Qantas Airways 319 
  Philippine Airlines 506 
 Connect in Singapore (Changi)

Out likely endpoint airport is Legazpi. I would be very surprised if they arrived via any other means than air travel.

On the 17th, there are only 7 arrivals. The first six are at 7AM, 7.30AM, 9.10AM, 9.40AM, 12.35PM and 1.45PM and all come from Manila. The final flight is at 2.20PM and comes from Cebu, also a viable entry point if we assume teams will connect in South-East Asia.

On the 18th, we have an extra Manila flight at 9.25AM but no Cebu flight.

They had the option to take a bus to Legazpi in TARA too, so let us not count that out.

There some crazy people runing around in sydney on the 19 th. So unless you see them with camrer crews,please disreguard it as it is a local race

also it has to start in the coming days

Is it possible that they'll have two legs here? Maybe in the capital city after Legazpi? :lol: I'm so jealous right now. :'(
Title: Re: TAR Australia 2 SPECULATION and DISCUSSION of Spoilers
Post by: amazing race fan on November 17, 2011, 07:13:13 PM
The producers picked a very good week to start, as this is a pretty busy week in Australia. As you might or might not already know, the Presidents Cup, which is one of the more prestigious golf tournaments in the World is going on right now in Melbourne. It is probably the most prestigious golf tournament that Australia has held in at least the last 13 years, so this is a big deal for many Australians. I am not saying this had any effect on their decision of when to start, but it definitely doesn't hurt TAR by not having as many people out and about ready to spoil.

Anyway, I am glad that we are off.

As Peach pointed out, the Philippine Airlines flight is the only one from Sydney today. It departed an hour late and is currently estimated to arrive at 6.19pm.

We know that teams are supposed to be filming in Legazpi tomorrow, and there will be no more flights today from Manila after they land, so it is likely that they'll need to use an overnight bus to get there.

Hi guys! Peach just pmed me, and I'm based in Manila. Will they have a leg here? I probably won't be able to go to the airport because it's far away and my car is wrecked, but I'll see what I can do.

When will they arrive again?

Same old, same old. :(

I speculate that the teams then take a bus to Legaspi immediately after the Balut Eating task in front of the Quiapo Church. Its a 9-12 hour bus ride.

We know that they the people of Legazpi expect the teams to arrive by 9 AM (about 8:30 hours from now).

paubaradi Paulo Baradi
Witnessed Amazing Race shooting here at Cagasawa Ruins, Mayon Legazpi Albay
we weren't allowed to take photos. Snakes on their neck,catch the pigs,learn folk dances

It sounds like we have the same Detour as TARA 4:
Quote
This Leg's Detour was a choice between Jig and Pig. In Jig, teams would do traditional costumes and dance to the satisfaction of two judges. In Pig, teams would compete in a game of catching an oiled pig. They would have to collect two pigs to receive their next clue.

Don't think they had any involvement with snakes though..

All tweets around 4pm to 5pm Jakarta time:

1. "Woaaah yang lg amazing race di jkt sepertinya seru ya. Rame jg di tl. Sampe tkg ojek pun ikutan :p *ampun*"
  Translation: "Lg Woaaah the amazing race in jkt seemed so exciting. Rame jg at tl. Tkg motorcycles until any follow-up: p * goodness *"

"Ooh. At the airport. Just spotted "teams" w/ discernible markings. looks like there's a "Race" of "Amazing" proportions going on in the PI!"

You'll never guess who tweeted it - Rovilson Fernandez, TAR Asia 2 third placer.. So I'm thinking it's us, he would know what the race looks like after all  :lol:

Rovilson hosted the ARAW Awards last night in Camarines Sur which is very near Legazpi, but he would have flown out of a different airport to Legazpi. I'm not sure where he would have flown TO though.

ZBC,
You asked Peach, but here's a little geography to help with the answer to your question. The Taj Mahal in Agra is 203 km from Delhi. I took a 2 hour fast train ride to make that visit. There are a wealth of interesting vistas in the Delhi metro area, so diverting to Agra is not something that I consider likely.

Teams got from Manila to Delhi via a huge number of options on connecting flights through Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore or Hong Kong. What was not possible was nonstop flights from Manila to Delhi or Manila to Mumbai (with connection on to Delhi). Here are the choices of flights arriving same-day on November 21:

via Bangkok
PR730 MNL BKK 1021 1249 connecting to  CK751 BKK DEL 1743 2030
TG621 MNL BKK 1334 1634 connecting to  FD3796 BKK DEL 1950 2302
PR752 MNL BKK 1830 2101 connecting to  PR752 (continuation of same flight) 2220 0116+1

via Singapore:
any of 8 flights departing 0600 to 1325 connecting to  6E12 SIN DEL 1803 2138  or to SQ408 1912 2215
 
via Kuala Lumpur:
MH805 MNL SIN 0652 1033 connecting to MH190 1904 2154

via HONG KONG:
any of 7 flights from 0540 to 1225 from MNL to HKG connecting to AI317 HKG DEL 1800 2059
PR306 MNL HKG 1448 1651 connecting to IT32 1855 2214
5J118 MNL HKG 1640 1938 or CX918 1758 1959  connecting to 9W77 HKG DEL 2102 0035+1 (OK, that's 35 minutes after same-day)

So as a very rough and mostly guessed guideline, I would think Dubai is the fifth leg, with two each in Philippines and India so far.

I have them flying out on the 21st not 20th. "Teams arrived back at Manila airport (Term 3?) afternoon of 11-21 via Penafrancia Bus". There is also a Tweeter just today saying there were in Luguna Bay, Victoria Philippines last week, still need to confirm dates.

BayBay,
It is a speculation thread. I note from you that "I'm gonna be in the background of Amazing Race Australia in Dubai airport #imfamous"
5 hours ago at 6pm EST last night and from another thread that the Delhi leg finished much later than expected this morning (meaning that it cannot have reached Dubai yet unless it was a TBC).  It appears that my interpretation of that information was incorrect as the Delhi leg preceded the Dubai leg.

Post by: Kiwi Jay on November 28, 2011, 03:00:09 PM
Also, last season the racecourse copied a lot of their course off of previous other franchises of TAR, seems this season they are going their own way with a route of:

Leg 1: Sydney, Australia - Cagasawa, Phillipines
Leg 2: Cagasawa, Phillipines - ?, Phillipines
Leg 3: ?, Phillipines - Dehli, India
Leg 4: Dehli, India - India?
Leg 5: India? - Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Leg 6: Dubai, United Arab Emirates - Istanbul, Turkey

(this route is a real speculation of facts presented, possibly legs may not be correct and locations may not be the final pitstop locations...)

TAR US did visit Turkey in season 7, but it is long overdue for them to go back, and I am really loving the route so far for TARAUS2

Post by: Cocoa on November 28, 2011, 06:19:28 PM
Kiwi, Cagsawa is leg 1. And Cagsawa is a place in Legazpi. So Leg 2 is in the Philippines, but not sure where exactly.

It might be a tacky idea, but I think there would be a high chance of TARAus travelling to Gallipoli/ANZAC Cove/Lone Pine. They could do it through Canakkale or Gelibolu.

If they did originate in Havana here are the probable flights via Toronto. (The only direct flight to Vancouver is from Varadero.)
                      Dep.                 Flight                                        Arrival
HAV Havana    07:35 (07:29)   AC 971       Air Canada    10:58
Then Toronto to Vancouver:
YYZ Toronto    13:30 (14:01)   WS 681       WestJet       15:56
YYZ Toronto    14:00 (14:08)   AC 109       Air Canada    15:58
YYZ Toronto    16:00 (16:04)   AC 161       Air Canada    17:51

There are flights from Varadero to Toronto, but they have too little time between flights to get through customs and immigration.

Can't believe I missed a chance to see the teams in TO. Depending on the flights they may have had to change from terminal T1 to T3.

That is EXACTLY what happens when locations are blown and security becomes concerned for the safety of the racers.

Which is why we try to NOT reveal locations before they are underway.

If this keeps happening, they could scrub the whole Vancouver leg. :groan:

Cuba's... an odd choice, but no more so than Israel last season. There's no travel advisories against it, and we don't have the weird "you can visit all you want, but you can't spend any money to support their economy" restriction the US has against Cuba.

It does suggest there won't be a visit to the US itself, though.

We only have 1 piece of evidence of Cuba so its not confirmed but it looks legitimate based on location and timeframe. We do have a gap between Paris and Vancouver. Havana to Vancouver via Toronto transit is the speculation. It also looks likely 2 legs in Canada? We may be then down to 4 teams, which would leave 2 or 3 legs left (if there is a final NEL).

US would be a good option giving direct flights back to the East coast of Australia. Also New Zealand could be an option too.

I think tarfly was suggesting that they would not visit the USA because they went to Cuba first.

I can remember the last few times I've had to do my visitation visas to the US they've asked questions about Cuba. And I know that when I got my work visa to do the summer camp they told me I would not be allowed to enter the USA if I had been to Cuba already on the trip.

By the way, if the Grouse Mountain cable car seen in the spoiler pics looks familiar, it may be because it's the same one Fox Mulder was hanging from in that X-Files episode where Scully was abducted by aliens.

Yes it could!

It looks like TAR Australia will go from Vancouver to Location Removed. Banff. I'm going to have to hunt down the episode when it airs. I love Vancouver and Location Removed Banff!

After thinking it over, I've removed the info until after the next leg has been run as I don't want to cause people to show up and interfere with the filming. Vancouver sounded chaotic and it appears that at least one location was scrapped due to the presence of fans. I don't want a repeat of that. I've passed on the information to Peach to put it up later or I'll do it myself. If it doesn't get posted before then, which is likely.

Since they are leaving at 7 AM and 8 AM this morning (Tuesday) for a 9-10 hour bus ride to Banff, they won't get there before sunset tonight and I expect an HOO. Therefore, most of the activity will likely be on Wednesday.

Plaidmoon,
 A Tweeter may think it's only a 9-10 hour bus trip, but I took the train the opposite direction and it was about 24 hours so that doesn't compute. Here is the word on the bus trip:

The distance from Vancouver to Banff is 880 km (530 miles).  It takes 10˝ hours to drive, not counting stops for scenery, food, fuel, and bathrooms.

With stops for food, fuel and bathrooms, figure more like 12 hours.

The distance from Vancouver to Banff is 880 km (530 miles).  It takes 10˝ hours to drive, not counting stops for scenery, food, fuel, and bathrooms.

With stops for food, fuel and bathrooms, figure more like 12 hours.

I got the 9 to 10 hours by googling for driving time estimates. I saw everything from 9 to 12 hours without stops. I was being optimistic. I figured they probably handed them bag lunches for the bus ride, but they may very well have stopped for a meal and gas break somewhere. The driver surely needed it. I don't think the estimate mattered much since they were surely going to arrive after sundown. I was confident they would have an HOO rather than shoot at night and miss the mountain scenery. Why go to Banff and not show off the mountains? Given the teams were seen running around late in the evening, you're probably right about 12 hours. It may have been 13 or 14 hours.

Mandie S
Amazing race at our hotel!!! What the hell is going on

(She's from Alberta)

More specifically, her twitter page says she's at Lake Louise, Alberta. Lake Louise is about 60 km (or 40 miles) from Banff and is another scenic landmark. It's not at all surprising they would be going there.

Having driven from Banff to Vancouver before, I would say 11-12 hours is probably the fastest a car could make the trip. The highways will also be very snowy, so there could have been many delays on the way there as well.

This is the Fairmont Lake Louise. Definitely one of the top attractions in all of Canada.

Since they are leaving at 7 AM and 8 AM this morning (Tuesday) for a 9-10 hour bus ride to Banff, they won't get there before sunset tonight and I expect an HOO. Therefore, most of the activity will likely be on Wednesday.

You bet. The only other major airports within about 500 miles from Banff are Vancouver and Edmonton and Calgary International Airport is only about 80 miles.

In looking at ARAus2 from an overview perspective, I believe it is about to finish in North America and head from Calgary airport back to Australia or to New Zealand for the finish. In considering the options, the most likely in my opinion is an east coast city in Australia that is not Sydney (that was the start of the race). That most likely means Brisbane. The alternative is Auckland, New Zealand . The most direct and straightforward flight connections to either one are in Los Angeles. I expect teams to do this:

to Brisbane - AC568 YYC LAX 0800 1010  connecting with  QA16 LAX BNE 2350 0730+2

to Auckland - AC568 YYC LAX 0800 1010  connecting with  NZ1 LAX AKL 2115 0715+2  or with NZ5 LAX AKL 2200 0750+2

Just in case, I am also offering another non-East-coastal Australian city, Melbourne:
AC568 YYC LAX 0800 1010  connecting with  V 12 LAX MEL 2230 0915+2  or  QA94 2330 1005+2

So soon? There were six teams in Vancouver, assuming one got eliminated there and one in Lake Louse we still have four teams. I would expect them to eliminate one more team before heading back to Australia. But they could of course do that on New Zealand.

And there are definitely five spaces on the sign-up board for the Banff buses. I'd bet this is what's happening:

Leg 1 - Sydney to Manila to Legazpi (11 down to 10)
Leg 2 - Legazpi to Baguio (10 down to 9)
Leg 3 - Baguio to Delhi (NEL)
Leg 4 - Delhi to Dubai (9 down to 8)
Leg 5 - Dubai to Istanbul (8 down to 7)
Leg 6 - Istanbul to Gelibolu (NEL)
Leg 7 - Gelibolu to Paris (7 down to 6)
Leg 8 - Paris to Havana (NEL)
Leg 9 - Havana to Vancouver (6 down to 5)
Leg 10 - Vancouver to Banff (5 down to 4)
Leg 11 - Banff to ???, likely Los Angeles or some other western US city (4 down to 3)
Leg 12 - ??? to Honolulu to ???, likely Brisbane/Gold Coast area (finale)

Looks like we've still got two legs left.

I don't think we're going to have a finale with 4 (maybe 5) teams still racing...

I think we have at least one more leg, if not two, or even three (if Calgary turned out to be an NEL) before the finale

I would say either Western South America (Ecuador, Peru), Japan, or China would be more likely as our next location(s)

I was surprised by the information about Cuba's literacy rate, but depending on how you interpret the statistics it is either precisely true or approximately true. Cuba is rated by some #2 after Georgia (100.0%)) at 99.8% literate vs. 99.0% for the U.S.. However, I find it difficult to distinguish between countries with 99.0% or higher literacy these are all about the same. Here are the countries in that category:
Georgia    100.0
2    2     Cuba    99.9
3    3     Estonia    99.8

awesome find ovalorange!!! I'm from sydney so maybe if i have some free time i could check out the area  :tup:

my best guess is that the starting line was at Lyne Park, the pier is built for seaplanes, there is a carpark right next to it, and a wide open lawn would be a perfect starting line :conf:

The first TARAus season premiered one week after the season finale of unfinished business.

I speculate this is gonna be the same case for the second season. The 7th episode will be delayed one week because of the CBS broadcast of a music award (info from wikipedia) so the finale should be on May 13. I predict the second season starts May 21 or close to that date.

we also got info that last team in India leg is a young woman and man team...maybe Father/Daughter team is 1st out

I can't take it anymore. When will they reveal the cast, this is excruciating. TARAus was one the most dazzling, entertaining, epic season ever (not just for a foreign version, but for a TAR season in general) and imo the only foreign edition thus far to hold a candle to the original.

Come on!

Seven also promised a ‘bigger’ race, with contestants travelling more than 65,000km over 4 continents. Two new twists will also enter the game- Must Vote U-Turns and the controversial Salvage Pass, which will shake up the first leg of the race.

If the Salvage Pass will 'shake up the first leg of the race', I speculate that maybe it is a prize awarded to the first team to complete some sort of Starting Line Task... otherwise it's hard to see how it will shake up the FIRST leg if it is not awarded at a Starting Line Task... :duno:

Leg 2: Manila to Legazpi City, Philippines: Kym & Donna eliminated
Leg 3: Philippines to Dehli, India: Adam & Dane eliminated
Leg 4: Dehli to Dubai, UAE: Sue & Teresa eliminated
Leg 5: Dubai to Istanbul, Turkey: Ross & Tarryn eliminated
Leg 6: Istanbul to Paris, France: either NEL or Geoff/Sticky & Sam eliminated
Leg 7: Paris to Havana, Cuba: either NEL or Geoff/Sticky & Sam eliminated
Leg 8: Havana to Vancouver, Canada: James & Sarah eliminated
Leg 9: Vancouver to Banff, Canada: Shane & Andrew eliminated
Leg 10: Banff to Beijing, China: NEL
Leg 11: Somewhere in China?: Michelle & Jo eliminated
Leg 12: China to Fraser Island, Queensland: I really hope either Joseph & Grace or Emilia & Lucy win over Steve & Paul if they are my predicted F3. Although of course the top 5 are interchangeable.

In TARIsrael2 teams had to vote on the team they wanted to be U-turned, regardless of the team's position (ie, teams could vote to U-turn a team ahead of them). The team with the most votes was U-turned. The Israeli version had the voting U-turn/yield in the majority of its first 10 legs, we don't know if TARAus2 will do the same.

Here's a link to a picture I found on Flickr in smileybrisbane's photostream. I'd post it but the photo has all rights reserved, so I can't save a copy of it. If anyone else knows how to do that, please post it here.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/8774875@N07/7101575405/in/photostream (http://www.flickr.com/photos/8774875@N07/7101575405/in/photostream)

It was labelled "Amazing_Race_Australia-301675" so it came up in my search. However,it was mixed in with a lot of photos of models in swimsuits, so it seems kind of an odd place for it. If these two in the picture are in TAR Aus 2, they can only be the two blondes, Michelle and Jo, climbing out of a boat, but in the photo they don't look like platinum blondes. One of their backpacks clearly has the red and yellow striped tag from the Amazing Race, so it appears genuine. It also has a watermark in the lower right corner that says "7ma". I'm guessing it's the logo for the 7 network and it's part of the promotional stuff they have released lately. It could also be from TAR Aus 1, but I don't know that cast, so I can't say.

As for the location, it's obviously not from the kayaking task in Vancouver, as it's far too cold there in December for bikinis. The background looks tropical with a white sandy beach and a radio tower in the distance. Could it be from Australia or the Philippines? The tasks in the timeline don't seem to match up. It could be from Havana too.

ALSO:

we know the starting line is next to the open air cinema @ the botanical gardens
and from the promo, it seems as though teams have to run ON FOOT from the STARTING LINE to Sydney Ports Marine Services on BARANGAROO where the first challenge is -
the challenge involves getting their car out of a maze of cars or something

from all our promos and live sighting spoilers, it looks as though all teams are safe through the Philippines (leg 1), so yet again our first leg will be the first NEL
the following teams have NOT been seen AFTER India:

Kym and Donna
Adam and Dane
Sue and Teresa

also from promos it seems as though we will have TWO legs in India

most of us speculated it was two, but IMO i think its just 1 leg in the philippines (route info in manila, then transport to legazpi) and then 2nd and 3rd leg in India, but I could be wrong.. :/

This is my boot list spec so far:

Leg 1 (Australia - Philippines) NEL
Leg 2 (Philippines - India) Kym and Donna EL
Leg 3 (India) Adam and Dane EL
Leg 4 (India - United Arab Emiates)
Leg 5 (United Arab Emirates - Turkey)

I was surprised by the information about Cuba's literacy rate, but depending on how you interpret the statistics it is either precisely true or approximately true. Cuba is rated by some #2 after Georgia (100.0%)) at 99.8% literate vs. 99.0% for the U.S.. However, I find it difficult to distinguish between countries with 99.0% or higher literacy these are all about the same. Here are the countries in that category:

I did a boot order prediction for the first season and I was way off, Chris and Anastasia was the only team I got right.

But I'm going to go on a limb and predict the boot order for this season:

11. Kym and Donna
10. Adam and Dane
9. Sue and Teresa
8. Sticky and Sam
7. Ross and Tarryn
6. James and Sarah
5. Lucy and Emilia
4. Joseph and Grace
3. Paul and Steve
2. Michelle and Jo
1. Shane and Andrew

I hope I get more than one this time

Okay, since Kym and Donna weren't eliminated in Leg 2 like which we we sure of, that changes a lot. We can narrow this down - the following teams are safe through to Turkey (Leg 5) (these teams have been spotted in Turkey or after Turkey (from promos and live sightings))

Shane and Andrew
Joseph and Grace
Paul and Steve
Emilia and Lucy
Michelle and Jo
Ross and Tarryn
Sticky and Sam
James and Sarah

The following teams were NOT seen AFTER Leg 2:

Sue and Teresa
Kym and Donna

Our next two legs are:
Leg 3 (Jaipur, India)
Leg 4 (Dubai, United Arab Emirates)

so if Legs 3 AND 4 are eliminations, we know who our next two eliminated teams are, however either legs could be NELs

so if Legs 3 AND 4 are eliminations, we know who our next two eliminated teams are, however either legs could be NELs

I believe you are mistaken Dubai and Istanbul. Sitcky/Sam and James/Sarah were last seen for sure at the horse track race, while James/Sarah MIGHT have been seen in Vancouver, but it's not 100% Sure.

Which means:

Leg 3 India: Kym and Donna OR Sue/Teresa are eliminated for sure
Leg 4 Dubai: The team that was not eliminated in leg 3 + Sam/Sticky and James/Sarah are at risk
Leg 5: Istanbul: These 3 teams + Ross/Tarryn are at Riske until Vancouver where we have our finale 5

My Prediction:

10th: Kym and Donna out
9th: Sue and Teresa
8th: Ross and Tarynn
7th: Sam and Sticky
6th: James and Sarah

MY QUESTION:
Wiki says 12 countries this season, sources?

We have 100% sure: Australia, Phillipines, India, UAE, Turkey, France, Cuba, Canada, China
If the 12 is true, we are missing 3 countries. Which one?
We heard rumors of England? But do we have proof?

We have proof for England at the Gala Opening of TAR AUS 2 at Crown Village Cinemas, in Melbourne a week before the show aired..

You can observe what other countries revealed here:

Against all odds, Lucy & Emilia survive at least 3 more eliminations. Let's have some fun and try to speculate how they could have beaten Ross & Taryn, Hunner's Chick and Sticky & Sam. I mean so far L&E have avoided elimination by: a team saving them, a team melting down at a challenge and a team quitting. Will we see any other Dandrew-like moments?

On a separate note, do you think that Ross & Taryn will show regret for saving Lucy & Emilia when they are eliminated?
Title: Re: TAR Australia 2 SPECULATION and DISCUSSION of Spoilers
Post by: Tian1234 on June 26, 2012, 11:45:38 AM
I doubt they will regret saving them, it probably wouldn't have changed anything in the long run. But then again, maybe It did cost them a place in the final 4. Regardless, it is a pretty dumb thing to do in a game like this.

Do you think E and L could make it all the way to the final 3 at the rate they are going? how do you guys think they will finish

I don't mind that they copy tasks, because it's a different experience every time a different team does it  :)
I thought these original tasks were amazing:
1. Leg 3 Roadblock (the ancient staircase) - it wasn't just one of those 'simple maths challenges', it was more of a puzzle, and it took place in an awesome location! I wish all Roadblocks were like this! This was probably one of the best Roadblocks I've seen in ALL of TAR franchises, no joke
2. Leg 5 Roadblock - it was basically a memory challenge, but it was designed and executed very well. From the beautiful mosque to that underwater column labyrinth, it was one of the better memory challenges to watch
3. Leg 1 Starting Line Challenge - bringing a board game (Rush Hour) to life is not copying at all. It's an absolutely brilliant idea! I'm surprised no other franchises had thought of it! It made a great Starting Line challenge and it actually required teams to think and interact with other teams right off the bat

If someone could iD the airport it could help us a lot, but it could be very hard  to nail down...
I've attached a photo of Delhi Airport departure hall which I THINK is the location. Then it would've been Episode 4 when they lost it
