Buenos Aires - TAR2 (due to economic crisis at the time)

Japan - TAR5

Half of its routes of TAR15 had cut off due to H1N1 virus:
Seoul, South Korea (the supposed first destination city) replaced Tokyo, Japan
Ghana and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - season 15, but they eventually visited in seasons 17 and 18.
One of the Balkan states (excluding Croatia, Greece, Romania and Thrace, Turkey) replaced Netherlands/Sweden legs also in season 15.

Interesting Korea and Ghana were on S17 together. When you say half what else was cut.

I assume Europe replaced Ghana/Rio? And Buenos AIres was ironically replaced by Rio?

No.

Leafsfan, here are the cancellation legs list:

From Survivor Sucks on "Alternate Countries" thread in The Amazing Race forum:
Quote
1. Queenstown, NZ replaced Buenos Aires, Argentina in TAR2 due to sudden political instability. (The legs between Brazil and New Zealand were moved forward one in the order while they were planning on the run -- it's not a coincidence that leg has weird structure, or that the campervans were so out of place, that was the best they could do on ~18 days notice. It also caused the issues the teams had getting to South Africa -- from Buenos Aires, teams would likely have been able to organise tickets on the direct flight eventually used in TAR7 and TAR11.)

2. Dubai, UAE replaced Istanbul, Turkey in TAR5 due to the terrorist attacks in Moscow as the race was in St. Petersburg. (As before, the other legs were moved forward in the order -- Istanbul was leg 5 and Cairo was leg 6 -- but since they were trying so hard both for a pseudo-Middle-East leg and to sidestep mainland south-east Asia they couldn't hold it off any longer.)

3. The two Philippines legs in TAR5 replaced two Japan legs due to redtape being impossible for them to sort out.

4. Macau, China replaced Arusha, Tanzania in TAR11 because of the issues teams were having getting around the lack of flights in the middle of the Hajj. (Zanzibar itself was always planned, but they'd originally planned Zanzibar as a mid-leg side trip with the Pit Stop back on the mainland, which is what caused the stress when it was moved.)

Japan replaced South Korea
Netherlands/Estonia/Sweden replaced Balkan State/Rio/Ghana.

It seems true because no plane between Sweden or Estonia and both legs seemed like they were put together last minute.

But you gotta admit both those legs were great for being done at the last minute.

Wasn't there a canceled leg in season 10 to Nepal (replaced by India)? I heard about this somewhere, yet I heard A LOT of things about season 10, A LOT. :lol:

It really makes you wonder why they haven't tried to give these legs another go. I would love to see that leg in Belize, adapted for 2-person teams.

I read somewhere that the canceled leg in Nepal was from season 19. Maybe i'm wrong.. :duno:

S19 was Laos. Nepal was specd on the boards here but it ended up being Laos most likely.

Season 19's cancelled a couple of route plans. Thailand was originally planned to be Laos, I think there was a possible relocation of Belgium because that leg looked rather splatted on a windshield... row a self-built raft to two points along a canal to collect half-and-half clues... search inside a barrel for a clue (clever, but really?)...

Are there any reasons why Laos leg is suddenly cancelled in S19? What was their original plan in Laos?

On The Amazing Race Australia 2, is there a reason why teams flew to Havana to get to the Pit Stop after going to the Parisian footbridge? I find it odd.

I found that really odd too... It was a "To be continued" leg, but still...
Title: Re: Canceled Legs
Post by: Jimmer on April 21, 2013, 08:28:34 PM
I think it was because production felt like it. The leg was a terrible leg in general with the mid leg flight to Cuba.

How did you find out about the Laos leg?
Title: Re: Canceled Legs
Post by: ianthebalance on April 23, 2013, 04:35:52 PM
I'm actually pretty glad the Laos leg was cancelled because the second Thailand leg was one of my favorite legs of the season.
Title: Re: Canceled Legs
Post by: Declive on April 23, 2013, 04:37:53 PM
I guess they should think about bringing the Laos leg back.
Title: Re: Canceled Legs
Post by: georgiapeach on April 24, 2013, 03:20:54 AM
How did you find out about the Laos leg?

Through inference. Phil said in an interview that one leg was just cancelled and the team had to scramble to form the next leg. The second Thai legged seemed off to a lot of us so we speculated it to be Laos. At one point Nepal was speculated too.

Nope.
 
 
 BISS:  ;)
 
Laos, however, is out there because that was the unused leg in TAR 19 and it is possible it was re-used.

It was probably LAOS that Thailand replaced in TAR19! Cindy/Ernie confirmed that they were going to go to Laos!

There was a Detour in Havana that wasn't shown, after the airport and before the nightclub. Among the other hints, teams arrive at 3:20pm (or thereabouts, my memory's fuzzy) and the nightclub is at most 22 minutes away on a straight road, yet nobody arrives until after sunset several hours later.

Season 24 (aka fake All-Stars) also had some cancellations which is why they only had 4 countries in the first 8 countries. I believe the Philippines was one of them.

It was speculated, but never confirmed, that there were supposed to be 2 Philippine legs and an Australian one.

I think the Philippine legs make some sense because it was carried over to Season 25. If I'm not mistaken we were supposed to get a Belize and Qatar leg in Season 25 apart from Malta, there was an interview with production & Bertram about it. That would have been 3 new countries.

Happy that they save Philippines for 25. That penultimate episode was really good and I don't think Singapore will do well as a penultimate. And 2 Caribbean legs in a row would be too much I think.

According to this article I've read in the past (can't find it now), Belize was slated to be Leg 1 and the U.S. Virgin Islands replaced it. Qatar was supposed to be the Singapore leg but according to Bertram's interview, they backed out due to production difficulties.

I though I heard that two legs in Bahrain & Qatar would replace the Morocco leg.
