Title: TAR 24 Speculation and Discussion **of Spoilers**
Post by: georgiapeach on November 15, 2013, 10:06:49 AM
This thread is the WORKZONE of the spoilers.

This is where ALL the spoiler speculation/discussion of the TAR 24 race goes, NOT in the LIVE thread. It is where we try to thrash out what the LIVE sightings mean. It is not a whoohoo thread, you can bitch and moan and squeal for joy here (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,29532.0.html) instead!
 
**EXCEPTIONS**

Let's try again to keep all the confirmed LOCATION info together so it is easier to find. So anything about a location we are sure of can go HERE (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,29541.0.html).
 
All info about TEAMS can go in the Contestant thread HERE (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,29471.0.html).
 
 
As always, per RFF's practices, we do not spoil the start location (if known) or any teams until it is believed that the teams are safely underway. We would never want to put a team in jeopardy or cause them distress or interfere with the actual running of the race. Info on future legs may also occasionally be protected for those reasons. But if you have info to share beforehand , we would love to know, so please PM or email me! Spoilers are treasured!
 
This thread will be opened once the race has actually begun.

I am starting to think this is an Unfinished Business 2.0 type season as opposed to All Stars 2.0

M/M Teams:
Herb/Nate - Second place in UB
Jet/Cord - Uturned
Dave/Connor -  Injury cost them the race
Mark/Bopper - Fell way behind in India
Leo/Jamal - Something is probably coming up in Tar23?

F/F Teams:
Caroline/Jennifer  - Out fourth; just missing final leg
Natalie/Nadiya - Out fourth; just missing final leg

M/F Teams:
Margie/Luke - Tea task in India
Brendon/Rachel - Missed helicopter in finale
Joey/Meghan - Uturned twice
John/Jessica - Eliminated with express pass.

I'm thinking it'll be called Redemption.

Ok

According to Chateua first destination city Guangzhou, China (I know another China 1st leg :gaah:)

I was looking up departing flights at LAX and there are 2 flights that I am looking at.

Flight 1: China Southern - CZ328 / Delta - DL7831 - Direct to Guangzhou. Departs at 10:30
Flight 2: Cathay Pacific - CX883 / American - AA6121 - To Hong Kong (with a possible ferry connection to Guangzhou). Departs at 10:20

I'm not going to criticize the casting until we learn what the rationale was; and I do agree on the surface, it does appear to be an "unfinished business" type casting; however, that could be only partially true.

And for the record, Survivor has brought back one contestant four times, until they finally won, and y'all do remember who that was.

Guangzhou hasn't been the location of tasks, but teams did have to fly there in order to reach Guilin in season 14. China is so vast with its numerous provinces and cultural differences throughout the country that it wouldn't be difficult to pick a previously unvisited locale.

I wouldn't mind India this season either, especially if Indonesia would be the alternative. And the first location does make Laos or Burma an option, and I would love to see one or both visited this season.

There are 2 flights going to Taipei.

That's the same flight, Joab. Delta and China Southern are both part of SkyTeam so they codeshare.

I have some itineraries posted, on top of the direct flight, in the Transport thread (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,29521.msg950675.html#msg950675). I believe they cover all the plausible possibilities that arrive in Guangzhou before noon on 18 Jun.

Post by: couchracer on November 16, 2013, 08:49:28 PM
If they connect through Taipei, there is one that arrives at 10:15, the second is at 15:15.
So I hope not, too far apart. EVA air.

Zouly, I think the tweets are just about the response to the initial LAX shooting. I am seeing reports that it has come out how long it took medics to get to the fallen TSA agent at the initial shooting. I am hoping that is it.

Some (horrible) pictures here: http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Slowhatch/library/Misc (I don't think the CIA will be calling anytime soon :hides  :funny:)
The teams I recognized: Globetrotters, Twinsies, Marge/Luke, Cowboys, Connors and the Internets. The teams I didn't recognize are the green team, the aqua team (country singers?) and possibly Mark/Mallory. The flights at the counter that I noticed were BR15 and CX883.

Green looks like Jessica & John to me, aqua looks like to Caroline & Jennifer.

The race started this afternoon at Cougar Stadium at College of the Canyons in Valencia.

The UCLA marching band was there to send the teams off.

They played the TAR theme in brass glory.

The destination county is China.  The city is Guangzhou.

Might not be relevant but

As I follow pac 12 college football, UCLA played on Friday night thus CBS was able to use the Bruins marching band today, whereas USC Trojans marching band (which is more distinct with their uniforms) wasn't available as USC played Stanford at home at the coliseum.

Just an observation

Let's talk about the upcoming route, which will likely be a classic four-continent race through 8 countries in Asia, Africa, and Europe.

China has been confirmed as the first destination, which wasn't surprising. The question is will there be two legs in China; I lean towards yes.
I'm also expecting to see India (last visited in TAR 20). This leaves one or two more countries in Asia, probably the Southeast region. Likely candidates are Malaysia, Laos, or Thailand.

There will probably be two legs in one African nation. Rwanda could be a possibility.

Europe is completely up in the air. I don't expect Western Europe; at best Italy (or perhaps Spain) would serve as a penultimate leg. I think we should look at southeastern Europe.

I remember I posted in pre-TAR24 Speculation thread way back in October, South Africa has getting possibility a chance to visit there and will have two legs in one African nation (Port Elizabeth and Cape Town; like HaMerotz LaMillion 1, TAR Australia 1 and TAR Ukraine 1). The country was last visited TAR 7 (a long time ago).

Both are beautiful places, Cape Town is really majestic with historic buildings.

Rwanda couldn't visit there due to clashes in neighboring Burundi and Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Probable destination:
North America -> Asia -> Africa -> Europe -> South America -> North America
5 continents, 8 foreign countries with no new countries ala TAR21, TAR22 and TAR23.

They didn't have the U-turn in TAR 11. So no U-turns. They did have the Yield and Eric/Danielle were Yielded twice.

That's a great idea for an AS season! Though I don't see Nana, Caroline & Jenn, Brenchel and a bunch other teams making history.

Post by: Kamineko on November 17, 2013, 08:50:05 AM
I'll put my speculation for the first leg (if they're staying in Guangzhou) here:
- Based on the pattern of 1st episode, which showcasing adrenaline themed task, the location I can only think is Canton Tower, which is the tallest structure in China. Maybe either rappelling up/down, or taking a bungee jump on the tower.
- The next task I speculate is relating with Cantonese opera (in any way that sometimes we can't think of).
- There might be an active Route Marker task.
- Finally, I speculate the Pit Stop location is the Temple of the Six Banyan Trees.

This is my PURE speculation, so this can be incorrect. ;)

Yes and Shen Zhen of course. But Shen Zhen and Guang Zhou are VERY VERY similar industrial cities so I'm not sure... Hong Kong and Macau on the other hand offer a totally different type of city landscape. They haven't been to Macau since Allstars (?) and Hong Kong since TAR 17.. anywhere is possible! :)
Title: Re: TAR 24 Speculation and Discussion **of Spoilers**
Post by: angeldanger on November 17, 2013, 09:26:30 AM
Maybe Cambodia after the first leg or second? Phnom Penh or Siem Reap- they haven't visited it in awhile (I'm thinking Vietnam won't be visited since they did it 2 seasons ago)

If they visit Hong Kong I have a few friends who live there that I regularly communicate on email with.

One of my mates is in Phnom Penh right now as a teacher chaperone for student trip till Saturday.

Likelyhood is that they will stay in the same country for two legs, noticing a trend this season (Chile for 2 legs, then UAE for 2 legs and Indonesia for the upcoming 2 legs after tomorrow's episode)-

Just pure spec.

I can't see the cowboys at all in there? I dont think there on
The Cowboys were there; they were standing just a few feet from me in the food court chatting with Connor. My camera only produces 40 min. of video so I concentrated on the teams I didn't know. (I should have brought a normal camera; people were taking cellphone pictures with/of the racers and production didn't pester them  :groan:)

I'm thinking a double leg in China - maybe a KOR leg 1 a la UB? Start in Guangzhou and then most likely head to either Macau, Hong Kong or Chengdu for leg 2 before heading south to either Malaysia, Thailand or Laos (let's hope for the very latter!) before flying to India

The only exciting team for this season seems to be Mark & Mallory.
I'm also looking forward to seeing Brenchel, Nana and Jessica & John, but I'll just be rooting for others to get eliminated one by one....

I usually like most of the teams in a season and so it's always sad to see the first boots, but now it's just the opposite, can't wait to find out who's out first :lol:

Peach, any starting line photo?

I may think Mallory and Brook Mark and Boopper might be last 2 things complete starfing line so they must switch partner, and maybe their other half eliminated???

I dunno
OMG how briliant and exciting would that be!!
Only I would prefer Caroline & Jennifer and Joey & Meghan or Assghanimals to lose such task :lol:

As I understand it, Slowhatch and Cheatau eyeballed all the teams at LAX, and while there doesn't appear to be photos at the moment, they did confirm that Jet/Cord and Leo-Jamal were 2 of the teams seen at LAX.
I'm guessing that we'll have eyeballs on the scene in China soon enough based on the work of TAR detectives in training in recent past seasons in China.
And as a note of interest about the Cowboys -- Cord retired from competitive bull riding this summer.
The only team that I had hoped would be on this season was Jamyes-James since they didn't win their original season and would be in need of redemption....and would have been a very popular choice for inclusion.

Based on Chengmd's sighting of the teams at Taipei, we can confirm:

Later flight via Taipei
Luke/Margie
Caroline/Jennifer
Brendon/Rachel
Herbert/Nathaniel

Natalie/Nadiya were seen at the Cathay counter, so it's more likely they made it on the earlier flight.

The first flight (the one connecting through Hong Kong) is currently scheduled to arrive 15 mins late reducing the advantage to 1 hour. Hopefully this means we're in for a close leg, I prefer the teams on the second flight.

Is it possible for teams take a ferry from Guangzhou to Macau or Hong Kong, after this leg (maybe a TBC). It take less around one hour for the journey.

Then in Macau/Hong Kong, a lot of flight can take teams to countries like Thailand, Nepal, Laos, etc.

Do a Congestion in Guangzhou Google image search and you will know why some teams chose to take the metro. Not only that, depending your race life on a cab driver who probably doesn't speak English sounds totally attractive to me. Teams would have properly researched how to get to the location via public metro during their waiting time in Taiwan or what and since all of them are travelling together, why not?

Jet & Cord have raced 4 legs in China. This is their 5th.
Flight Time & Big Easy and Mallory have raced 2 legs in China. This is their 3rd.
Natalie & Nadiya raced 1 leg in China, and this is their 2nd.

Brendon & Rachel raced through India & Japan (kinda an intro to culture shock etc)
Leo & Jamal raced through UAE, Indonesia & Japan
Everyone in the TAR22 Crew have only been to Vietnam & Indonesia(Jess & John only visited Indo)

Ferris Wheel "Luck Task"; the wheel takes 30 minutes to spin a complete round. There's 16 cubicles and if they only put a clue in a few of it, that may account for why it's taking some teams so long? :gaah:

It seems like those 'angry-bird' cameramen which didn't hesitate to threatened you if you get too close, but turned out that fans could take a picture together with the racers, even Joey&Meghan and Brenchel posed out in front of camera  :groan:

I'm soo amazed with (another, yet soo close) shot of our guangzhou detective team  :colors

Is this the closest distance we ever got on the actual race? Capturing the actual clue?! From the hand of the racers I think  :colors

Proud of u guys  :hrt:

I wonder if there was a starting line task which determined which teams got on which flight.

One factor which IMHO indicates this is the wording in the extra information sheet weihen posted earlier. It said "First flight (Teams with Cathay Pacific ticket jacket)". To me this sounds as if teams received tickets instead of picking them up at the counter. Or, and more likely, they received empty ticket jackets in the starting line challenge and then had to pick up their real tickets at the counter on the airport.

Please note that 12h is not a rigidly followed rule any more, although it does happen more often on the first Pit Stop of each season.

For TAR 23 we've had:
12h (Iquique), ~26h (Santiago), ~13h (Lisbon), 0h (Svolvaer), ~16h (Sopot), ~14h (Vienna), and ~21h (Abu Dhabi).

The mothership TAR no longer has a set time period of 12 hours for the mandatory rest period between legs. The amount of time between arriving teams adjusted for any unannounced penalties and credits will be maintained to release teams for the next leg,

I agree, I think we need to accept the cast as it is and move on so we can look forward to the locations/challenges/races. Hopefully there will be a lot more close legs. The only thing is I think when the legs increase in difficulty some of the teams will fall by the wayside leaving the teams who are stronger at the tasks left standing (i.e. the cowboys) and no one wants that...

Ikr. People on sucks are like " This is probably the worst season ever " or "This is the worst cast ever " or " This is the worst all-stars season ever"
Just because the twinnies got eliminated last night and YouTube didn't. If YouTube didn't get eliminated everyone would be like " What a great start to this season " It's pathetic. I can tell this season is probably gonna be one of the best competition wise we have ever had. I mean look at the teams. They all finished within 1 hour and 30 mins.

You never know. It's different in any ocasion. Mostly you have to rely on places like Twitter or Instragam or such as to dig in between thousand of posts to discover the whereabouts of them. It's a job that requires a lot of patience and effort, specially in places where those pages are not so easy to reach for the locals, or the languaje barrier can be an obstacle. It wouldn't be the first time that we lost track of the racers in some point outside the US for days, and then suddenly we have news of them again in a different place. And if we're lucky, we can have the help of local fans who track them on the site - like it was on the first leg of this season -,  although not always this happens.

Well with 2 of 4 teams I actually care to watch again gone in the first two legs quite possibly, I fear I cannot be bothered with this season. What a crap cast :( if they wanted three timers it should have been the best of the best. If they wanted YouTube, NaNa, Brenchel etc. back then they should have filled it with Bill/Cathi, Brook/Claire, Maxie, Chynona etc. and if they said no, then they should have waited another season. Not pleased at all with S24.

I mean clearly Cowboys, Globes and Marg/Luke have an advantage. They should have put them back on for Season 30-ish with the likes of other teams deemed best of the best, bringing back Charla/Mirna, BQs etc. from the past. This season should have been with:

Brook/Claire
Snowboarders
Bill/Cathi
Brenchel
Bopper/Mark
NaNa
Chippendales
Country Singers
YouTube
Pam/Winnie
Chynona
Dave/Connor
Tim/Marie
Leo/Jamal
with John/Jessica as alternates.

Gosh its annoying.

So after 2 legs in China, they must fly to a new country, considering the area around...

Indonesia - Visited too often in recent seasons
Vietnam - Went in TAR22
The Philippines - may not be good choice now because of the typhoon
Singapore - not sure what new places they can go there...
Malaysia - Likely
India - Likely
Thailand - Likely

And there are 2 places which I wish they will go! It's been a long time TAR visits new countries!

Myanmar - now more feasible to visit

So after 2 legs in China, they must fly to a new country, considering the area around...

Indonesia - Visited too often in recent seasons
Vietnam - Went in TAR22
The Philippines - may not be good choice now because of the typhoon
Singapore - not sure what new places they can go there...
Malaysia - Likely
India - Likely
Thailand - Likely

And there are 2 places which I wish they will go! It's been a long time TAR visits new countries!

Myanmar - now more feasible to visit
Nepal - not saying they planned to have a leg there before?

Myanmar could be good, I know that Top Gear were just over there filming their special and managed to go under the radar.

If the next country is Indonesia, i hope they visit a place that is not in Java  or Bali.Maybe like Bangka Island, or Borneo or Makassar or Bunaken and do a snorkeling/diving challenge there  :cheer:

If they do visit Indonesia, can i join the live tracking? lol

Either 5 times or 4 times in a row. TAR didn't visit Indo in S20. ;)

Just want to add this from my last post: I wish the spoiler & detective crew will be great again if they visit Indo this season. :hearts: :cheer:

Maybe without Davechel and all the s20 drama Brenchel is actualy a capable team?

Probably. Davechel overshadow all the teams in that season and we couldn't see  the others in their real dimension, like Brendon & Rachel.

Agreed with Brendon & Rachel, as I assumed that they would've done well (not necessarily Romber TAR7 style, but better than how they eventually ran TAR20).  With N & N's exit, it'll help, but who knows how J&J will perform later on

I actually think it COULD be Philippines. Manila isn't affected by the typhoon, and they could have tasks related to typhoon relief like TAR 19 Thailand.

When is the last time a NEL was in Leg 2? They have been eliminated. All NEL's are pre-planned. Doesn't matter what team comes in last. The first NEL is most likely going to be Leg 4.

Yea, I know they're all pre-planned, that's my point, as far as I can remember there's never been an NEL on Leg 2, maybe there was a slight chance this season was the time for it. But obviously not  :gaah:

I'm thinking a NEL Leg 3 maybe? or a continue racing leg?
They had 2 in Unfinished Business, so they may have 1 here too?

Malaysia is roughly due south of their current location, so nothing is foreclosed going through Singapore; but I think Oceania to the east is unlikely since it would involve a lot of backtracking later unless the route is like TAR 7, and everyone seemingly complained about that route not being roughly a circumnavigation of the globe.

I am confident that we need to treat Leg 3 in #KotaKinabalu #Malaysia just like we treat Polynesian islands (Tahiti),

Sabah is a very diverse tourism destination, ranging from natural wildlife park, jungle, world war monuments, memorials and caves & bunkers, and consist of many surrounding islands and water resorts and white sand tropical beaches...
(I just googled Rasa Ria Resort) and it was a wonderful place and they have OrangUtan conversation as well...

We need to look at some photo-blogs, travel blogs, or other platform than social networks...
and it might appear later on, when those tourists/travelers get back home or back to their hotel and start writing their journey and experiences  :hrt:

Sabah is a tourist attraction, but you can say it's kind of rural as well. It's like Koh Samui is to Thailand in comparison.. not the main few cities but people go there for the beautiful wildlife and beaches.

That is a huge jump. First we don't know if they have a HOO when they arrive. Second they could be confused on the dates. Third they could have an early leg Thurs and move out 10-12 hours later. Double leg is a jump, imo.

My guess is one leg only then moving on...

Sabah has the same timezone as me in Samarinda (we're at the same Borneo island, eastern part of it),

So if they landed about 6.00AM this morning, then have a leg there, and the tweet said Thursday (which is tomorrow our time) Leafsfan assumed that Malaysia could possibly planned for Two legs...

Post by: theschnauzers on November 20, 2013, 10:41:25 AM
I suspect the leg(s) in Sabah may be similar to those in TAR 4, in that those legs were mostly in rural areas and involved a lot of self-driving between tasks and active route marker locations. From what was reconstructed about those legs that season the teams basically weren't near any urban or suburban areas except for the airport at the end of the latter leg to head to the next destination. That vusut was mostly rural, nature preserves and forests, and small villages.

As far as finding live or near live information, we're going to have to go to those new usual suspects twitter, instantgram, facebook, liveblogs, or even the type of blogs that were around in 2004. :)

I think you two are talking about diff things? Dr Rox is talking about the tweets sent on Wed saying they will be handing out clues tomorrow, ie Thursday. IF that would be the case then that would be leg 4 not leg 3.

However, I again doubt a leg in Indo. FWIW.

^^ No word on a leg in Indo. The tweets were indeed from a person in Sabah who's involved in race production, and somehow, her followers/friends on twitter from PADANG, INDONESIA decided to engage in a conversation with her and somehow led to a discussion of their own local school amazing race in Indonesia. (things people can digress to :groan:)

If they get cars immediately, self drive and don't get lost. I'd expect an hour or so later than that. Maybe they end up taking a bus or train and get there any time.

I've taken a look at the attractions in Kianson and in Kudat and Kianson seems likelier to me. The Mari Mari Cultural Village at Kianson look just like the sort of place TAR loves to go.

http://marimariculturalvillage.com/ (http://marimariculturalvillage.com/)

3. you get 5 different tribes in 1 village.

You are guided to each different tribe houses and learn about their different lifestyle, culture, and history. You get a fun and educational experience: see first hand how these tribes used the blowpipe to hunt, start a fire with bamboo and used bamboos to cook their meals.


A blowpipe roadblock? Or starting a fire with Bamboo? One of the visitors mentioned a headhunting demonstration as well. That presumably would be a detour, but a shrunken head would reduce the partner's contribution for the rest of the race.  :funny:

They also have some gentle (class 1 and 2) white water rafting.

I'm seeing things they could do in Kudat, but nothing nearly as interesting as Kianson.

Although this would explain the almost complete absence of sightings in the last 24 hrs I don't understand why they would spend so long in Guangzhou. Having a 12 hr+ PT then racing for 3-4 hrs within the same city then having another massive break?

From the pics/video from Kota Kinabalu - One def looks like Cord for sure, not sure about the others.  Are there several teams getting out of the vehicle?  They were probably safe and ending the leg?  The hotel mentioned is just NW of where the pit stop is noted on the map. Not sure if this goes here or the other thread.

The other thing to remember is that Qatar is a major airline hub for connecting flights . as are KL, and Singapore. Let's be careful about assuming Qatar is the next leg, it may just be a connecting point.
(And our experience with flights in and out of Sabah in season 4 supports that caution.)

Okay guys. Let's not get all excited.

We have some very inconclusive tweets suggesting that racers were returning to airport, that has not been confirmed by on the ground crew. No idea if Qatar is true or not. Racers could very well be cozy in a hotel somewhere.

We also are working on something entirely different which may or may not have merit, we will know tomorrow.

At the moment there is nothing factual, no airport sightings.

SANDAKAN airport has been raised as a possibility, they also have flights to KL.

It is about a 5 hour drive to Sandakan from Kota. Since WRP has had teams drive in Sabah before, this is quit possible. Production could space out RB, DT and RI stops along the way. There is also bus traffic between the two cities.

Since they started in China, I don't think there'll be a chance that they'll visit Oceania. (Unless Qatar rumor is not true, maybe there's a small chance.)

They could still go somewhere like the Maldive islands or the Seychelles, though I doubt they would go through Qatar to do it, if that rumor is true. That would tend to lead them back to Africa, which they seem to do every other race recently.

Actually, most teams HAVEN'T been to India - it's been absent a fair bit recently, so the only teams to have raced there before are the threepeaters and Brenchel. (Then again, Margie/Luke and the Cowboys have now been to China three times, so.)

Kazakhstan I think would be off limits as you would need to fly through Moscow.



This is an incorrect statement. The statement might have been true in the days of the Soviet Union, but I have no data source to check.  Kazakhstan is an independent country, it is not part of Russia. Lots of flights to both Astana and Almaty, now, from foreign destinations. There is actually one direct flight from KL.

It's highly likely a double leg in India's up next. It's been 4 seasons since the last visit there.
I doubt Kazakhstan mainly because I think Africa will be visited this season and after India there'll be 5 legs already.

Oh interesting, I was going on TAR13 which went India-Moscow-Almaty

Only one team in TAR13  traveled to Almaty on that routing, Terrance/Sarah. It cost them their Russian visas. If they had not been eliminated in Almaty, they could not continued to race, since they no longer had visas to enter Russia. They also were not able to do decoy work in Moscow.

Because the only way that Leg 4 is not KL Malaysia and is in fact a transmission city for teams to another COUNTRY, means that teams have to either travel South by KTM train to Singapore or North by the same train to Bangkok.

Teams were seen at the gate in Kota Kinabalu's low-cost terminal between 5.54pm (sunset) and 6.34pm (upload time). This means they were on one of these three flights:

AK 5133 from Kota Kinabalu to Kuala Lumpur, 1830-2100 - ARRIVED 853PM
AK 5117 from Kota Kinabalu to Kuala Lumpur, 1835-2105 - ARRIVED 950PM
AK 4119 from Kota Kinabalu to Kuala Lumpur, 1935-2205 - ARRIVED 1005PM

There is a time gap from near towards 9pm - 12/1am when the cowboys were finally spotted at the KL city centre. For all you know Sky Bar is not the first task in the city.

Some (horrible) pictures here: http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Slowhatch/library/Misc (I don't think the CIA will be calling anytime soon :hides  :funny:)
The teams I recognized: Globetrotters, Twinsies, Marge/Luke, Cowboys, Connors and the Internets. The teams I didn't recognize are the green team, the aqua team (country singers?) and possibly Mark/Mallory. The flights at the counter that I noticed were BR15 and CX883.

Green looks like Jessica & John to me, aqua looks like to Caroline & Jennifer.

What about the picture dates?

Isn't it possible that they were just talking to the camera? (I don't know how to call it, just one of those moments when teams talk about their feelings, what they're thinking)

Is it just me...or am I reading to much in to this?  Interview in their room?  Does anyone else think this means the Pit Stop was also in the hotel (where the bar is) and they are staying in the hotel tonight?  Really wish he would give more details, but I am new at this and don't know how much to push. Esp since he just told us to watch the show...LOL

I'm not the best at this either, but I try not to be a pest. If he doesn't want to talk I leave it at that. I took PNC to be some kind of Non Disclosure Agreement that he agreed to so that he wouldn't reveal what happened. The interview part seems weird. Maybe they are waiting out an Hours of Operation for the next part. It is the middle of the night there after all. Maybe they are having a discussion with the production staff about something that happened. It seems like an unlikely place for the pit stop.

The "their room" part definitely makes me think they might be staying there.  But, it could just be they have a TAR room set aside where they can do those interviews.  Also, I agree...sounds like he is an employee and probably has some kind of non-disclosure agreement.

You're right Plaidmoon about not keep pushing. We had a bad experience on Curaçao - while following TARLA 5 -, when the poster stopped providing info because she was almost harassed to scare by a lot of people asking for details. Peach tried to solve the situation, but the damage was done. Some times is better to stop asking, specially if it looks like a dead end or the person can't give us more info or is somehow involved with local production - like it happens three seasons ago in Ibiza -.
Insist asking for a team or situation in particular can only result in that person not answer us again, or believe that we are treating as stupid for not knowing what are we talking about.

Exactly, and the reason "you have to tell us because people in other places did" isn't going to do anything. I'm sure the circumstances in the bar compared to those on the streets in China are just a little different.

I think I'm through bothering him. I get nervous when half a dozen people start bombing some poor witness with questions. He's being a very good sport about it though. I think he's enjoying the attention.

I still think a 3 AM pit stop is odd and wonder if they are off waiting for an HoO for the next portion of the leg, though that would be unusual for the middle of a leg. This whole leg seems a bit weird to me.

That remark about "their room" sounds like production taking over a banquet room at the hotel. A place where they can do confessionals and sequester the teams. Production has done this before. I can remember one in Guilin, China in TAR15 and at Heathrow Airport in London in TAR 15. In China, they released teams in the same time frame that they arrived, but then teams hit a HoO  at that drum deal on the mountain.

Hopefully this means they haven't been eliminated but it's not looking good. I definitely don't think they can compete with the likes of Brenchel, Dave/Connor and the Cowboys (eugh!) but I'd like them to be around similarly to how they were in S22...

We really shouldn't assume a 12 hour length for any pitstop. It will be the length production needs to control teams' travel options and provide means for Phil and Bertram and the other exec producers (usually Elise) a sufficient lead time to get ahead of the teams for the next leg.

but love this explained better  :conf:

^^ That conflicts with other info you've posted -- I believe this is from a source right?

SM the picture that I referred to as "John's Picture" was one of Joey and Meghan. So they are still in the race!

As far as I can tell, everyone but Youtube has photo evidence of being enroute to KL -- click the links on the leg 3 SAFE teams, everyone is accounted for.

IF it were indeed an elimination leg, Joey & Meghan would be the only team possible to be eliminated... NEL would be 9 teams, Elimination would be 8 and that does not match both pieces of your info.


THIS:
Except like I said.. that afgnamals pic wasn't tweeted live and was from leg 3.

Is not true -- two separate sightings of the Afghanimals yesterday, both approximately at the same time here (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,29543.msg954453.html#msg954453).

So, I am leaving Joey & Meghan as the only unsafe team for now based on photo evidence, unless someone can show me how ALL the info fits together ???

If we see them in the wild RACING then take that as confirmation that they are still in but until then I'd consider Joey & Meghan to be unknown -- at risk.

Most of us asked him out in public on twitter questions and he said he couldn't answer them, and one girl with a hot picture asked him to DM her and he did DM her and spilled his guts when she asked him questions.

Stop being so difficult. I assure you that Joey and Meghan will be seen in future screenshots. ~

He probably is. THERE IS IMAGES OF THE OTHER 8 TEAMS. He said he saw 8 teams at the bar. Connect the dots it isn't rocket science.  :res:

Since he was part of local production he would likely be under strict instructions to lie about seeing teams or not. At the moment Joey & Meghan are at risk of having been eliminated but that can change, I'm doubtful that it will but it could possibly change.  Further more I wouldn't ask people who are directly associated with the show as part of local production about what teams were there, Most likely they signed some sort of agreement with the show and could be fined if they leaked information out and it was discovered that they did. We do NOT want people to be fined or lose their job as a result of leaking information just to find out if Joey & Meghan were there or not.

Connect the dots....

There could have been a fast forward on this leg and one team didn't go to that roadblock, or jet and cord used their express pass.

The worker said the roadblock was very hard and all of the teams that did it were having trouble and some almost gave up.

Im tired of people bashing team youtube for no reason. If you dont like them that is fine, but no reason to bash them to their fans. I dont bash your favorites teams. Its time to grow up people.

Excuse me he said he saw them at the skybar, there is no reason to doubt him. He is a worker there and saw all the teams doing the task.
I appreciate your hope for Youtube. I love youtube too, but faced it, it is highly unlikely they survived Leg 3.

FF is undocumented. We are only going by INFORMATION WE HAVE. IIRC Jet and Cord were photographed doing the RB.

Stop manipulating the facts because you wanted the uturds to survive. As of now it is probably 90% sure they have left.

Yes. I think the flight to KL was mid-4th leg. Maybe one/two other locations/tasks before the skybar and then the pitstop (which is currently ongoing) at the hotel.

To put it simply (and extinguishing the flames):

The testimony by the employee is not reliable information because there is a conflict of interests (him probably being under contract and all).

There is no photographic evidence or external sightings of U-Tube racing in Leg 4.

Therefore: Joey & Meghan have the highest probability of having been eliminated in Leg 3, however this is not 100%.

And please can we stop bashing each other?

That was what I was thinking too. And alcohol would probably be one task, and since there is not much light, it's difficult to carry out tasks (unless indoors).

Maybe Mug is right, could there be a task in KK before flying to KL for the pitstop (Leg 4)?

Still, I find it really weird to have a night leg (Yes, I know Norway this season, but there is still light.) I wonder what KL can offer at night. Any possibilities KK + KL be one leg?

KL has nothing much to offer at night. Been there a few times myself... After midnight, it's just staying in hotels, and the streets are not super safe as well...

^^ KL, like Singapore, has much to offer at night. But then those will be very "modernized" task related to night life and the only thing that is as close to local would be the street hawker stalls. And that's really bout it, no beautiful nature, forests, temples, mosques (to be visited at night) etc..

For whatever reasons, production decided to have pit stops in very public places. It is hard to manage crowds in that type of environment. Plus China has such dedicated stalkers too.

A direct bus from KL to SG will take approximately 6 hours or so? Not too sure about this, driving takes less than 4 hours.

Just back from Batu Caves and saw amazing race contestant and cameras and the crew were filming them.
Ameer ‏@plutoindenial 4m

At the airport right now. On my way to check-in there was a team from the Amazing Race and I'm in the shot. Random fun!
Oh, probably leg 5 has recently started ???

I was trying to make some sense of the timing of the sightings from today. Time of the tweets.

Teams seen at Batu Caves
1) ~4:47 pm
2) ~6:14 pm

Team at possible travel agency
4:10 pm

Team at KUL
7:00 pm

Flight MH 179 for Nov 23
Scheduled for 11:05 pm.......but shows a delayed takeoff at 12:20 am MYT and anticipated landing at 12:55 IST

I only post the operator......never any codeshares. Keeps the confusion down.

According to the new live sighting.....teams are flying KL to Singapore to Colombo. Need to check some more flights....direct flights probably for Phil.
Title: Re: TAR 24 Speculation and Discussion **of Spoilers**
Post by: Lutpay on November 23, 2013, 07:50:51 AM
Based on sightings, teams were headed to Colombo.

There's actually one direct flight to Colombo from KL tonight, but it's delayed:

CMB Colombo    MH179 23.05 - 23.59 (scheduled) --> 00.10 - 01.05 (new schedule after getting delayed)

Some of the teams might be smart and take a chance to fly to Singapore, and use this flight:

SQ468 23.05 - 00.15

CMB Colombo    MH179 23.05 - 23.59 (scheduled) --> 00.10 - 01.05 (new schedule after getting delayed)


That flight has actually landed. I thing it was from yesterday and delayed past midnight, so shows up for today. At least that is the way I read the chart.

Three possible flights from Singapore to Colombo
1) CX 711 9:00pm -- 10:25pm
2) SQ 468 11:05pm -- 12:15am
3) EK 349  10:05am -- 1:40am

There are lots of flights from KUL to SIN. If that spec about the team at a travel agency is correct....might sense, since flights are split between the M terminal and the L Terminal at KUL

If they got to the airport early to get one of these flights to singapore 2030-2125/2050-2150/2125-2225/2140-2235, they might be able to catch SQ468 2305-0015 which landed 20 minutes ago (its now 12:25AM local time in colombo). Direct flight still needs around one hour.
Or maybe they got to airport so late that the direct flight is full? I'm not sure.
But most likely an Hour of Operation is waiting for all teams.

Am I the only one who would LOVE to see Brenchel eliminated next?  :funny:
I never liked them the first time round, and was sick of Rachel's constant whinning! Brendan seems OK though, but I cant take another full season of her!  :groan:

Have to agree with you there. No matter if you personally love or hate those teams, some of their fans/followers will check the Race out (again) if they promote it on Twitter/Facebook ... I seriously doubt, that many of them will continue to watch if/when they are gone. And I really think the Race needs good ratings, not to be put on the endangered species list again ...

Maybe I'm just seeing things to bleak ... who knows

If cowboys don't win will cbs bring them back until they do? If brenchel out next or in top 3 again will theybe brought back for a 3Rd time? It's not like TAR23 Are doing great ratings? BB15 With all there problems had great ratings but then again they had brenchel fans running the show for half the season!

You should consider that neither Brenchel or YouTube had much of an impact on the ratings the first time they were on the show. Or at least there wasn't much of a ratings increase those seasons - it more likely was a ratings decrease, but I don't think it was anything to do with Brenchel. The trend has been downward for several years, at least in terms of actual people watching. Also, Big Brother has an audience about 2/3 the size of TAR. If Brenchel couldn't nudge Big Brother's ratings up much, I doubt they will for TAR.

You should also consider that Joey has gained two million MORE subscribers since he's been on the race. I'm not saying every single one of them will watch it but a good amount of them will. The first time around doesn't mean much we are talking about how their fanbase has grown since then. Now they are on all-stars more people will be watching and probably only for them and once they are gone bam down goes the ratings. You can dislike the team all you want but there is no doubt there be some kind of decrease in the ratings.

Facts are facts people, the only teams with huge fanbases on this season are team youtube an brenchal. Youtube for being very succesful on youtube and having tons of followers/subscribers, and Brenchal for being on BB and amazing race before.

The other teams are regular life people who were on the show before with small fanbases built up from their past seasons. They are nothing compared to Youtube/Brenchal.

I'm sorry if you cant see that.

If Brenchal get eliminated next I dont see the show doing good at all. The boot order for this season is horrendous. NANA, Mallory and Mark, Youtube, and possibly Brenchal.

His 2million subscribers are not all American, where the show is shown live, and ratings are only accounted for.
His subscriber count didn't really start to rocket until TAR22 was over. I'm pretty sure thats where most of his popularity came from which means a good amount of them are american.

I hope you guys are right and YouTube and Brenchel bring millions of viewers to TAR. It's a win-win situation for everyone and would be one of the best things that ever happened to TAR. However, I'll be skeptical until the ratings come in for the first couple of episodes.

By the way, I like Team YouTube and would have liked to see them last longer. I'm OK with Brenchel too, but the tears and drama from Rachael got to be a bit much at times.

I agree. That's the risk CBS took with bringing those teams back too. Like once those two teams get eliminated they are going to have to deal with a ratings drop. Think about though, what fanbase does JJ,Cancer,Puke,Cowboys,Country singers, and Afghans have? All 6 of those teams probably have the fanbase size of YouTube and Brenchel combined.

Just when I think I'm getting out, they drag me back into the discussion.  :iok

TAR's ratings are largely due to the TAR fanbase. They could have 11 or 12 completely anonymous unheard of teams and still get decent ratings, That was true in most of the early seasons. It's only been the last 10 or 12 seasons when TAR would bring in a couple of teams with some name recognition. Before that, it was Rob and Amber from Survivor and maybe one or two other teams that I can't come up with at the moment. Ratings haven't generally dropped off the cliff when a well known team got eliminated. I doubt that will suddenly be the case now. At most, teams like YouTube and Brenchel might add 10 or 15% to the ratings and most likely less than that.

I'm going to withdraw now, since I've said my piece and I don't either of us are going to change our minds.  Also, this should probably be in the Bitch and Moan Thread and not in the discussion of spoilers, so we're just littering up the real discussions that should be going on here. Not that there hasn't been a lot of that so far.

Although I'd have liked to see J&M go further at the end of the day I think we're all foremost fans of the race and we still have a good season to look forward to.

Looking at the most recent seasons that headed West first (17 onwards), all but one left Asia/Oceania and headed towards Africa/Europe on Leg 6 so I think a leg there next is likely. I'm also hoping for South Africa (or Marrakesh), I just hope they show that there's more to Africa than safari...

I'm shocked nobody has done it yet but with the help of wiki.. :funny:

Leg 3 of TARA 4 flew from KL to Colombo too. Shocker and surprise surprise.

Quote
Leg 3 (Malaysia → Sri Lanka)
Kota Kinabalu (Kota Kinabalu International Airport) to Sepang, Selangor (Kuala Lumpur International Airport)
Flight: Sepang (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) to Colombo, Sri Lanka Sri Lanka (Bandaranaike International Airport)


Colombo (Gangaramaya Temple)
At Gangaramaya Temple, teams had to receive a blessing from the Buddhist monk to receive their next clue.


>Detour (Count It or Carry It)< Colombo (Pettah)
The Detour was a choice between Carry It or Count It. In Carry It, teams had to carry 12 blocks of ice to a market vendor across the fish market. In Count It, teams had to count fish and give the correct amount of 1100 fish to receive their next clue.
(not likely, an almost similar task in TAR 21)


Colombo (Nugegoda Station Road - Peanut Vendor)
At the Peanut Vendor, each team member had to sell 20 bags of peanuts for Rs.15 a piece. They should give the earnings back to the vendor to receive their next clue.


>Roadblock (Who can reap what they sew?)< Colombo (Trendy Connection)
In this Roadblock, one team member to sew a shirt to receive their next clue.


Pitstop: Colombo (Independence Square)

 ;)

There is also a double leg in Sri Lanka in TARA 4 but as of now I think we can stick with this because teams will need to travel by train to another location on the second leg.

Here's the TAR Australia leg in SL, somewhat including some tasks from 2nd SL leg in TARA 4, so I thought I'll post this.


Quote
Leg 11 (Israel → Sri Lanka)


Colombo (Gangaramaya Temple)
Same task


>Detour (Count or Carry)< Colombo (St. John's Fish Market)
Same task


Railway: Colombo (Fort Railway Station) to Galle (Galle Railway Station)


Galle (Galle Fort)
At Fort Galle, teams had to go to the beach where they found a chest with a combination lock and a clue asking for Sri Lanka's year of gaining independence: 1948. This opened a second chest that asked the year of birth of Sri Lanka's first Prime Minister Don Stephen Senanayake: 1884. The second chest contained their next clue.


Bus: Galle (Galle Bus Station) to Ambalangoda (Ambalangoda Train Station)


Ambalangoda (Mask Stall Vendor)
At the mask store in Ambalangoda, teams were shown a photograph of a particular mask. They then had to search the a nearby street festival for a person wearing the matching mask in order to receive their next clue.


>Roadblock ("Who can reap what they sew?")< Colombo (Trendy Connection)
Same task


Colombo (Independence Square) >Pit Stop (Leg 10)<

if brenchel is gone the next leg the ratings are gonna drop faster than a meteor. You can already expect them to drop after YouTube's boot but if they are eliminated after YouTube or even in 2 legs the ratings are gonna plumit. Like who else has a big fan base?

Am I the only one who would LOVE to see Brenchel eliminated next?  :funny:
I never liked them the first time round, and was sick of Rachel's constant whinning! Brendan seems OK though, but I cant take another full season of her!  :groan:

I don't understand the love for them? But I don't live in America so maybe I'm missing out on the Love-Fest!  :funny:

I too have not seen Brendan & Rachel in Big Brother; therefore, I really do not understand the love for them. :funny: Tbh, I was hoping that they'd be out in their season and at the same time I'm hoping that they'd win a leg before getting eliminated. :funny: So I think I would consider myself neutral for Brenchel. :umn:

I have tried to stay out of this debate, but since it is still going on...lol

I love Brenchel (and I am from America...someone earlier said they were from America so maybe that is why they don't get it).  Rachel on TV (in front of cameras) can definitely put on a show. She loves to bring over the top drama and generally cracks me up!  She is well aware of what producers are often looking for and does her best to deliver it.  She is sometimes what is good and sometimes what is bad about reality tv.  But...I  :luvya: her and Brenchel! :)

I actually like most of the teams on TAR24 though.  Loved the Cowboys their first season, but not so the second, so I am not looking forward to them.  I am not a fan of the country singers, J/J (don't even understand why they are back unless this is an UB2) or the Afghanimals though.  I have actually quit watching TAR23 because of the Afghanimals and Tim & Marie.

Jobby, TAR Israel 2 and TAR Ukraine 2 also visited Sri Lanka. Both produced by a same production company as TAR Asia and TAR AU.

Sri Lanka legs in HaMerotz LaMillion 2 (Israel):

Quote
Leg 10 (Thailand → Sri Lanka)
Colombo (Susu Darame Temple)
At Susu Darame Temple teams had to find a needle in a haystack. They had to use the needle to sew holy Buddhist emblems on white robes. Then they had to wear the robes, take a taxi to a monastery, and receive a blessing from a monk to receive the next clue.

Colombo (Sri Lanka Masks Festival)
Same as Ambalangoda, but includes a live cobra in basket

Colombo (Groceries Corner) (Overnight Rest)

Colombo (Kollupitiya Market or Laundry depot) >Detour (Spices Porters or Laundrymen)<
For the Detour, teams had to choose between Spice Porters and Laundrymen. In Spice Porters, teams had to arrive to a market and pack 25 kilograms (55 lb) of chili peppers in sacks and carry them along the market until arriving the mashing stand. Then they had to mash all the peppers to receive the next clue. In Laundrymen, teams had to traditionally wash 50 dirty sheets. Three of the sheets contained words. Only after teams will discovered the words did they receive the next clue. Each Detour choice had only three workstations, first come, first served.

Colombo (Sunil Cowshed)
At Sunil Cowshed teams had to put cow manure into baskets, put the baskets on their heads, and take the baskets to a drying area. Then they had to mix the dung with water and sawdust to make cow-pies. Then they had to stick 100 of the cow-pies to a wall to receive their next clue. (Similar to TAR18's Feed the Fire Detour in India 2).

Bus: Colombo to Viharamahadevi Park
In an unaired task at Viharamahadevi Park, one team member had to correctly draw and paint the flag of Sri Lanka following only verbal clues from their partner.

Colombo (General Post Office) >Roadblock ("Who reads between the rows?")<
For this Leg's Roadblock, one team member had to search for a letter for the team among 7,000 letters. After finding it, the team received the next clue and a special item that was sent from home. (This is not unlikely just like it did on the Leg 4 Roadblock in TAR:All-Stars).

Colombo (Independence Memorial Hall) >Pit Stop (Leg 10)<

Quote
Leg 11 (Sri Lanka)
Colombo (Coconut Plantation) >Detour (Male or Female)<
For the Detour, teams chose between Male and Female. In both tasks team members could only use their right hand. In Male, teams had to load a buffalo-drawn cart with coconuts and guide it along a marked path. One team member led the buffalo while the other made sure no coconuts fell out of the cart. When they delivered all of the coconuts they received the next clue. In Female, teams had to milk a female buffalo. They had to completely fill a bucket with milk to receive their next clue.

Colombo (Gangaramaya Temple)
Different task, unlike TARA4 and TARAu1. At Gangaramaya Temple, one team member had to walk over hot coals with their bare feet and then perform a traditional dance for some judges. After that, the other team member had to lie on a bed of nails for three minutes.
Colombo (Galle Face Green) >Pit Stop (Leg 11)<

Sri Lanka legs in Velyki Perehony 1 (Ukraine):
Quote
Leg 2 (United Arab Emirates → Sri Lanka)
Colombo (Gangaramaya Temple)
Different task; At the Gangaramaya Temple, teams needed to find a needle in haystack. After finding it, teams needed to use it to sew an emblem onto traditional Buddhist clothes.

>Detour (Hostro or Brudno)< Colombo (Kollupitiya Market or Laundry depot)
In this leg's Detour, teams had to choose between Гостро (Hostro – Hot) and Брудно (Brudno – Dirty). Same task above as Israel.

Colombo (Donegal House)
Same task above as Israel.

>Roadblock (Who’s the most attentive?)< Colombo (Sri Lanka Masks Festival)
Same task above.

Colombo (Sima Malaka Meditation Centre) >Pit Stop (Leg 2)<

Quote
Leg 3 (Sri Lanka)
Colombo (Mahazime Chicken shop)
At the Mahazime Chicken Shop, teams had to pick up two chickens in cages and carry them for the rest of the leg.

Railway: Colombo (Fort Railway Station) to Kalutara (Kalutara South Railway Station)

>Roadblock ("Any of you have commercial talent?")< Kalutara (Main Street)
In this leg's Roadblock, one team member had to prepare and sell 20 coconuts. They had to make at least 500 Sri Lankan rupees in order to receive their next clue.

>Detour (Voda or Korzhiky)< Bandaragama, Kalutara (Wevita Lake)
In this leg's Detour, teams had to choose between Вода (Voda – Water) or Коржіки (Korzhiky – Cakes). In Voda, teams had to wash the traditional markings off an elephant. There were only five elephants available, first come, first served.  Only the Cakes task is same as above.

Panadura (Gangula Devalaya)
At Gangula Devalaya, one team member had to perform one of two tasks. They would either run across a bed of hot coals in their bare feet, or lie on a bed of nails for three minutes. After they completed one task, they would then find out that the other team member would have to perform the remaining task. This task was incorrectly presented as a Roadblock.

Colombo (Mount Lavinia Hotel) >Pit Stop (Leg 3)<

The additional task in Galle in TAR Au 1 is a recycled task of the second Sri Lanka leg in TAR Asia which was actually a Roadblock, the combinations are different: ("What year when Ceylon became a republic and changed its name to Sri Lanka?"), and the answer of the combination is: 1972.

I assume Independence Square might be used as a Pit Stop.

Have to agree with you there. No matter if you personally love or hate those teams, some of their fans/followers will check the Race out (again) if they promote it on Twitter/Facebook ... I seriously doubt, that many of them will continue to watch if/when they are gone. And I really think the Race needs good ratings, not to be put on the endangered species list again ...

Honestly I think that part of the reason TAR is going a little bit down hill in the ratings is in part because the challenges in recent seasons are a little bit underwhelming, (which is in due to budget)

I would rather see one really awesomely produced season a year, with a higher budget and more effort put into in then 2 seasons that are about at the quality that it is now.

Please correct me if I am wrong...but right now it is basically noon Central time zone, so it is about 11:30 p.m. in Sri Lanka, Sunday, 24 Nov?  This would mean most teams have probably checked in at the pit stop (if not most at least some)?

I will be glad when TAR23 airs tonight because the Amazing Race hashtag is going crazy today and it isn't for TAR24.  LOL

What are the chances of Africa after Sri Lanka? South Africa perhaps? #SouthAfricaIsLongOverdue

Agreed and concurred. I must say Africa is next after spending 5 legs in Asia. Two legs for South Africa please (like post-AS legs in Africa: Burkina Faso, Ghana, Malawi, Tanzania and Botswana).

Unless they are doing two legs in Sri Lanka (which I doubt), surely they have left or are in the process of leaving now (depending on when they arrived at the pit stop yesterday).

I don't think a ferry is an option, so I would guess we are looking for flights?

Let's go to Durban, South Africa  :luvya:

I agree with ZouLy. The chance could be 5 legs in Asia.

Route:
USA -> China -> China -> Malaysia -> Malaysia -> Sri Lanka -> South Africa?

Enough of Asia already. TAR14 has the most Asian legs ever: 7, include a double leg in Leg 10.

Summary of Asian legs in TAR:
TAR1 - Second half of Leg 7 to first half of Leg 12 (India -> Thailand -> China)
TAR2 - Legs 5 to first half of Leg 8 (Thailand -> Hong Kong, China)
TAR3 - Legs 10-12 (Malaysia -> Singapore -> Vietnam)
TAR4 - Legs 6-10 (India -> Malaysia -> South Korea)
TAR5 - Legs 8-9; second half of Leg 11-Leg 12 (UAE -> India; then the Philippines)
TAR6 - Legs 9-11 (Sri Lanka -> China)
TAR7 - Leg 8 (double leg) (India)
TAR9 - Legs 8; 11-12 (Oman; then Thailand -> Japan)
TAR10 - Legs 1-6 (China -> Mongolia -> Vietnam -> India -> Kuwait)
TAR11 - Legs 9-11 (Malaysia -> Hong Kong, China -> Macau, China)
TAR12 - Legs 8-10 (India -> Japan -> Taiwan)
TAR13 - Legs 5-8 (Cambodia -> India -> Kazakhstan)
TAR15 - Legs 1-6 (Japan -> Vietnam -> Cambodia -> UAE)
TAR16 - Legs 8-11 (Malaysia -> Singapore -> China)
TAR17 - Legs 8-11 (Oman -> Bangladesh -> Hong Kong, China -> South Korea)
TAR18 - Legs 3-7 (Japan -> China -> India)
TAR19 - Legs 1-5 (Taiwan -> Indonesia -> Thailand)
TAR20 - Legs 6; 9-11 (Azerbaijan; then India -> Japan)
TAR21 - Legs 1-5 (China -> Indonesia -> Bangladesh)
TAR22 - Legs 4-5 (Indonesia -> Vietnam)
TAR23 - Legs 7-11 (UAE -> Indonesia -> Japan)

I love all the spoilers and pictures, but I also love the craftiness of the race where we do not know what is going on. Spoilers never ruins my love of watching the race when it airs. The racers, we know they will pop up again. If I ever cheer an elimination it is in private, I usually cheer a nonelimination. I do tend to like teams with better attitudes, and dislike when teams make agreements with others.

That's a shame. I'm always surprised that teams that are young and fit tend to go out so fast. I can't wait to see the episodes to see what happened.  And I need to pick a new favourite team :D.

I don't know if this belongs here or in the timeline area, but it is SPECULATION!

The difference in time is really messing me up (by the way, don't tweet that or some World Clock page will start following you on twitter), but...

Yesterday I saw this
atut #ASHMEGO ‏@rabbyAG 24 Nov
Waaah got amazing race people at airport :o
              {{Details show 9:30 p.m. - which should be 11:30 a.m. in Singapore on 11/25}}

It now shows Nov 24, but yesterday it showed a few hours when I first tweeted her (would have been late on the 24th in the US).  This should be 11/24 for me, but 11/25 for the racers, if I understand right.

Because today I got this...
atut #ASHMEGO ‏@rabbyAG 7h
@MelindaMathis88 sorry for the late reply! Singapore's Changi Airport and I wasn't there I just saw people tweeting

This morning, I asked her if she knew how many teams and to confirm which day. She tweeted the following back right before she went to bed.
atut #ASHMEGO ‏@rabbyAG 2h
@MelindaMathis88 not sure, it was yesterday, 25th. sorry not much of a help!

I have tweeted back fro her to confirm it was in the a.m. or the p.m., but she tweeted not long after the one above that she was going to bed, so I may not hear back for a bit.

In Sri Lanka there are 11.5 hours ahead of us, in Singapore they should be 14 hours ahead of us?  Right now I have 12:35 p.m. on 11/26 and it is 2:34 a.m. on 11/27 there.  Her tweet several hours ago would have been right before midnight...so she was still on 11/26, but barely.

At first I discounted this info, but the more I think on it...

So...am I grasping at straws? Am I making sense? Did they possibly catch flights out of Singapore's Changi Airport yesterday on 11/25.  If nothing else it tells us they didn't have two legs in Colombo.

The pictures seem to have the same relative lighting so are maybe all from the same time of day?

I am wondering if they all came in about the same time again. Dave and Connor seem to be looking for or at someone.  The guy with white shorts is in all the pictures (but the one with J/J and it is just a closer picture) so he is no help.

Cord is sitting on the ground when the Country girls checked in.  Just makes us believe more and more those two teams have an alliance. 

What is interesting to me is the camera crews up around Leo & Jamal.  No one else has any, yet they have two? I guess this means they are going to be crammed down our throats again?

At the minute it seems to be -

1st - Dave & Connor
2nd - Cowboys
3rd - Country Singers
4th - John & Jessica
5th - Affghanimals

I'm thinking Globetrotters will be 6th as they were on the same flight as the first 5 teams.
Margie & Luke and Brenchel are unknown.

Hope this helps :D

Mhmm well all Im saying is if brenchal are gone I have no one else to root for and all my hope in winning the season would go to globtrotters. The rest of the cast are ridiculous and unbearable. The boot order so far has been horrible and  I cannot believe they haven't canceled this season yet. It is horrendous and the worst season of amazing race I have ever heard of.

Thank you peach for the picture. Thanks to the person who take the picture also!  :hearts:

Basically, I kinda like the order in this leg. JJ still in, Leo and Jamal also.  But, where is my Brenchel?  :groan:

I hope Margie & Luke get eliminated. Don't really root for them personally since TAR 14. It also would make them being the 4th team to go, same like when they were in UB (just some random coincidence)  :yess:
Title: Re: TAR 24 Speculation and Discussion **of Spoilers**
Post by: Platrium on November 27, 2013, 03:43:04 AM
so just confirmation, team YouTube is eliminated?
And does anyone know or can guess the current ranking of teams as of now?

At the minute it seems to be -

1st - Dave & Connor
2nd - Cowboys
3rd - Country Singers
4th - John & Jessica
5th - Affghanimals

I'm thinking Globetrotters will be 6th as they were on the same flight as the first 5 teams.
Margie & Luke and Brenchel are unknown.

Hope this helps :D

Margie & Luke and Brenchel are definitely the last 2 in this case. Unless globetrotters get something unlucky like... losing travel documents. :lol:

And if the reason why Brenchel and Margie & Luke fell behind is a flight delay / "bad flight," that would mean that they'd be the next 2 boots. (7th & 8th place)

Cowboys still there... as expected. :res: They better be u-turned like how they were in the Swiss leg in TAR18. :funny:
I wonder if Team JJ has already won a leg or not yet. ??? I hope they do. :hoot: Seeing them survive through 5 legs shows that they haven't made an extremely terrible mistake.
I wonder what happened to strong teams like Globetrotters, Margie & Luke, Brenchel. ???

They don't. One cameraman/soundman pair is with them. The other cameraman/soundman is always with Phil. I recognize his soundman. Normal for a pit stop. They are just doing some close up shots.

So if they are in Rome, you think it would be Leg 7?

If we missed one, lets see, they had double UAE last time and it's not a big enough country to revisit often.Oman or Qatar in the Middle East?  In NE Africa, Kenya's probably temporarily off list except for transfer purposes, but Ethiopia's still generally safe enough for insurance purposes and they haven't been in a while.  Maybe one of the 'Stan countries? We don't seem to get much chatter from there and former Soviet countries in winter seems like it appropriately takes it up a level for an all star season.  Or possibly a Balkan like Bulgaria or a former Yugoslav?

IIRC, It's been a while since teams were in Rome; season one (with a unclaimed Fast Forward in Vatican City) and a couple of active route marker tasks in Rome at the Spanish Steps (the infamous DaVinci Code task in leg 6 of season 9). The metro area around Rome has never been the location of a pit stop.
So Rome has never had a full leg of its own, and has never been a pit stop, so perhaps season 24 remedies both of those deficits.

I'm starting to think we need an index by country of which legs TAR has been to that country because it might help sort out possible destinations during filming.

Well UL 581 should have taken off about 2 hours ago, but I have no confirmation of that event. It is a 10 h and 20 minute flight to Rome.

Schedules arrival in Rome is ~ 7am Rome time  UTC+1

Scheduled arrival in US time is ~1am eastern time and ~midnight central time

I agree! I think that Leg 6 is somewhere between Sri Lanka and Rome.
Which would mean Rome is Leg 7. Hopefully Leg 8 is also in Italy, since it is such a beautiful country with great culture.
I really hope that a team gets eliminated in Rome, as teams haven't been eliminated in Italy since season 9.
So maybe Leg 6 is a No-Break Leg, and then into Italy? Or is Colombo --> Rome confirmed?

Leg 3 or 4 is a NEL, and I think that either leg 6 or 7 is a NEL. It all depends on how many teams are spotted in Rome tomorrow.
How many airports does Rome have? I know there's Rome-Leonardo da Vinci and Rome-Fiumcino (sorry about the spelling) Teams may be arriving in Rome from different airports.

Actually that is just one airport. It is in the Fiumicino suburb an it is named after Da Vinci. But yes, you are right, Rome has two airports, while Da Vinci is the main international one, the one in Ciampino suburb, while mainly a military base, it handles some civilian flights, mainly from Low Cost Carriers.

99% of chances are TAR is arriving and/or departing from Rome-Fiumicino-DaVinci.

For me it is a 50/50 split chance. There is more than enough space for another country between Sri Lanka and Italy at the same time there are marvelous places inside Sri Lanka (my sister just came back from Colombo) like Sigiriya where the true and original The Lion King story took place.

If they did 2 legs in Sri Lanka, then I'm surprised they were not spotted again inside the island or at the Colombo airport. If they did another country I may suppose it is a less traveled place just like what happened with Botswana when they also disappeared for a few days.

Also, if there was another country, I'd say that it is not a hub, because of how easily they can be spotted. This leaves India, Ethiopia, UAE and others out for me.

So far we have seen: Dave/Connor, Cowboys, CaroJen, Globies, Afghans at the spanish steps RB, and
Not sure: one M/F team spec'd to be John/Jessica

That means we still haven't seen Margie/Luke and Brenchel. One of them might be eliminated in Sri Lanka AND if there's a leg between Sri Lanka and Italy, they might have been eliminated on that leg. However if there's NO leg between Sri Lanka and Italy, one of them might still survive. They could be ahead of Dave/Connor or terribly fall behind any other teams

???

please correct me if i said anything wrong :P

Glad to see the Live Sightings Thread active again. :hearts:
From that thread (and a lil' from this), only JJ, Margie & Luke, and Brenchel are unconfirmed. To me, I think Brenchel got booted out in 8th place, just a spec though. I could be wrong.

I thought I saw another team in all black when JJ arrived too, running like headless chickens, but it could've been camera crew. This means only 1 team has been eliminated since Sri Lanka, we would think.

By the looks of the picture on the Pont Sant'Angelo, Caroline and Jennifer had already completed their Speed Bump? Or do they usually place the clue right before they make their way to the Route Marker?
Title: Re: TAR 24 Speculation and Discussion **of Spoilers**
Post by: DrRox on November 28, 2013, 09:02:20 AM
Well it could mean Leg 5 and 6 in Sri Lanka.......5 an elimination and 6 a NEL........or Leg 6 could be somewhere else, but no mistake that previous leg was a NEL and C/J came in last.
Title: Re: TAR 24 Speculation and Discussion **of Spoilers**
Post by: NMC on November 28, 2013, 09:02:51 AM
So just to clarify, the boot order up until now is -

Leg 1 - 11th - NaNa
Leg 2 - 10th - Mark & Mallory
Leg 3 - 9th - Youtube (or NEL)
Leg 4 - NEL (or Youtube)
Leg 5 - 8th - Brenchel or Margie & Luke
Leg 6 - NEL (Caroline & Jen NEL)
Leg 7 - Rome - Unknown

So what I gather from this, is although Margie & Luke and Brenchel were the last 2 teams on what is to believed Leg 5 (Colombo), which ever one of the 2 wasn't eliminated got ahead of the Country Singers on Leg 6 for them to be NEL.

BUT what if there were 2 Elimination Legs in a row, Leg 5 and 6, Leg 6 being Colombo, which saw both Margie & Luke, and Brenchel eliminated, and then CaroJen came last on Leg 7, and Rome is actually Leg 8?

This is only based on the facts that there's been no sighting of either Margie & Luke or Brenchel for quite a while, and we did lose all the teams for a 2 days, a couple of days back.

Or maybe I'm toootally wrong!  *-:)  :funny:

That's what I would do if I was filming the race in such a public place. Maybe even throw in a few decoy teams.

But is that even possible? Can there be a ff after a NEL? What if the last team did the ff. Would they skip the speed bump?
Title: Re: TAR 24 Speculation and Discussion **of Spoilers**
Post by: johnnyboy224 on November 28, 2013, 09:48:10 AM
I doubt a last place team that has a speed bump can even do the fastforward since they HAVE to do the speedbump.

This means that either brenchel or luigi got eliminated in the shri lanka leg and then there was another leg maybe in shri lanka where the Carolina's came in last but it was a NEL. Then we see them in the rome leg and we don't see brenchel or luigi. This means that there may be a Fastforward and maybe since they were all on the same flight brenchel got to it quicker and started it while the other teams said forget about it because they might finish it before us and we lose time.

Also keep in mind either brenchel or luigi may be lost and behind everyone else in the rome leg. Who knows.

Or another possibility is that both luigi and brenchel were eliminated in a new "double elimination" twist in shri lanka.

Just checked there and the only time the FF was on a Leg after a NEL was Season 22 Leg 7, so we could see a FF in Rome but I'm sooooo hoping there isn't one, because I really want to see Brenchel Eliminated  :groan:

if Brenchel got speed bump & uturn it's a dead end for them, i remember vaguely that Mona & Beth survived both, whilst Nicky & Kim don't.
but that only because Joey & Meghan sucks
it's always a double u-turn lately, is it? when was the last time we have a single u-turn?

still no absolute precise oh yeah that's definitely them sighting of Margie & Luke?

Hi johnny, I am trying to get my facts right by asking if anyone sighted Margie & Luke. And yes, I know the red coat is Jessica. I am trying to understand why DrRox commented that all teams except Brenchel are seen. Thanks.

Re Neobie

I don't think the pitstop was just after the spanish steps task because
1) The photos of the teams at the pitstop just started arriving in the last hour
2) Afghanimals & Globetrotters arrived at same time although Afghanimals left first (They could have lost their way though)
3) I would say both Afghanimals & Globetrotters seem safe from the screen-cap although Globetrotters left the task in last place (Other teams may have lost their way also or maybe there was another final team behind)

oh i'm sorry it's because i assume that the speedbump is a fake since we're currently talking about "fishy speedbumps"
with that being said, leg 6 is actually an elimination leg and both Brenchel and Margie & Luke are actually eliminated in leg 5 - 6

I agree, I think it was a legit speedbump. But I don't think it is impossible that it wasn't, therefore speculating about its legitimacy / talking through what is going on is useful (especially if other posters think for whatever reason it is not legitimate).

I think that this season is following the route of season 19 (Asia (many legs) -Africa - Europe - Latin/South America - Finish line) and it will be possible than before the last leg, teams travel to mexico, bolivia or colombia  :cheer:
and also i really think that rome is their next destination and it would have two legs in there  :yess:
Pd:Sorry if i didn't write very well but I'm not an english speaker just another mexican fan of the reality. :hoot:
G
Nice Almaraz! We need more mexican presence here haha. ( I am too)

Anyway...since they're in Italy already and last we knew they were in Sri Lanka... could we have a country in between? Or did they really just made that huge leap?

It's good to know that. :hoot: mmmm i don't know why no one can think that maybe one of the past legs could be a double elimination leg. That's what i think but never knows what could happen to the teams. (However i strongly believe in a double elimination leg) :cheer:

I forgot that Phil was seen the day before the teams in Rome!

That makes it much more likely that there was only one leg between Colombo and Rome, meaning Rome was likely Leg 7, and we have one team unaccounted for!

Also,  Phil tweeted at the start of the race "12 shows, 21 days". Not sure if we're counting calendar days or perceived days?

Yes, if they travel westward they will experience 20 sunrises but if they go eastward they will see 22. But this only means that the days get longer or shorter, not that they get any more time. I.e. the number of hours is constant.

I really think the Speedbump sign/RI sign was probably AFTER the Spanish Steps too. When the last team passed that point, production would have dismantled that location. The photos of that location were all posted on social media after the RB. Since the photos were by different people, I believe that they were posted pretty quick from people's cell phones in probably near real time.

One interesting note, the location of the Speedbump sign is literally feet away from the suggested route from Da Vinci Airport to the Spanish Steps.

giardini just means gardens......which gardens....did you ask him which one? There are a LOT of gardens in Rome.....it could be this one.......but who knows?

http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giardini_romani

It is also a very common name for restaurants

I did a search on GE for that word and got about 50 places in Rome.....lol. Btw, I did the search right after you posted the original note. It seemed a pretty senseless clue as it is stated.

Since it is close to the other places, I do like the Giardini de Lago at the Villa Borghese. It just says TAR all about the place. But this is just my very selfish speculation.

The Medici estate is next to the Spanish steps too. It could be the gardens on this estate.

The person who wrote the article noticed the camera crew at 12:30pm. There is a photo of Globetrotters, John/Jessica and Leo/Jamal at the pitstop. As these teams were still at the Spanish steps at around 12.30-1pm I think that the task at the steps was the last of the leg.

Basically, it says that the journalist was at Piazza dil Poppolo yesterday at 12.30pm when he saw this people with cameras and a strange man dressed as a roman. His first thought was "a movie", but later one of them showed an announce saying AR24, meaning it is The Amazing Race; what was confirmed when he saw Phil there.

The rest of the article is a description of the show.

The pic is in the sightings thread.

Yeah also Flighttime was looking in the opposite direction as if someone was coming in this way.

I think it doesn't add up that this was the last task. I don't believe Caro/Jen were able to finish the speed bump and even have more than 1 hour lead over some teams going into this task.

Cowboys and C/J left the Spanish Steps about 1:15 before the Globetrotters......they had come and gone from the mat when the group got to the mat. They were just not tweeted about.......lol

The webcam feed is not in real time. There is a time delay. But the time differential still remains the same with respect to the teams arrival and departure.

Pls no.
Please tell me they were 10 hours ahead of all the other teams, took the fast forward, and have now already left for another country for the next leg.

Whose left boring country singers,the even more boring JJ,whiny Luke,homoohobic cowboys,arrogant afghans,annoying and annoying trotters!Only maybe interesting team is Dave and Connor who I liked on there season and was sad they had to leave.One team is not going to make me suffer through this boring season but for those watching good luck hope your team wins so we never have to see them back on show!

Good speculation everyone! And an especial thank you to Dr ROx for the great time summary.

But there is no answer here. JJ could be ahead...with the others brought in.. Or the other way around. Someone could get a penalty...or not.

In the old days the team who arrived first would be on Phil's left (from his pt of view)...but that has not always held true in recent seasons.

So loads of questions, not many answers.

After noticing some familiar patterns, I went back in the archeives and looked back at the last returning racer edition of TAR, TAR 18. To refresh your memory, the route was........

Leg 1 -- Australia (Sydney)
Leg 2 --Australia (Broken Hill)
Leg 3 -- Japan (Tokyo)
Leg 4 -- China (Lijiang)
Leg 5 -- China (Kumming)
Leg 6 -- India (Kolkata)
Leg 7 -- India (Varanasi)
Leg 8 -- Austria (Vienna to Salzburg -- self driving leg)
Leg 9 -- Austria/Suisse (Salzburg to Zermatt -- train ride leg)
Leg 10 -- Suisse (Zermatt)
Leg 11 -- Brasil (Rio de Janeiro)
Leg 12 -- USA (Miami/Florida Keys)

So the pattern was almost always 2 legs per country, with the exception of Japan and Brasil. Austria had one leg and Suisse shared 1/2 a leg with Lichtenstein. But since they are so close together, you can almost say 3 legs in Austria/Lichtenstein/Suisse

So now we have TAR24 and so far we have:
Leg 1 -- China (Guangzhou)
Leg 2 -- China (Guangzhou)
Leg 3 -- Malaysia (Kota Kinabalu)
Leg 4 -- Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur)
Leg 5 -- Sri Lanka (assumed Colombo)
Leg 6 -- ??
Leg 7 -- Italy (Rome)
Leg 8 -- Italy (apparently from social media)

So I am going to propose that Leg 6 was in Sri Lanka or close by in South India/Maldives. Only Sri Lanka has a direct flight to Rome, but all have lots of connections through all the Persian Gulf airports.

I really think they have a high chance of CBS asking them to come back, now that we have proven they have nothing against threepeaters.  :res:

What I really hope they do is a season of all stars vs newbies. But the twist is the all stars are from very early seasons (S1 to S10) so that they are basically new to the mechanics of the current TAR.

Is Jordan confirmed? Because if it's not a hoax, there's a chance that it could be the missing leg between Sri Lanka and Rome.

Confirmed? Maybe I've missed something, but I haven't seen anything that suggests they went to Jordan. As far as I know, there's as much evidence for them going to Jordan as there is for them going to Mars.

Somebody posted a cryptic "Filming in Jordan!?!" (the entire message) a few days back but never provided a reason for believing it was true. It's possible, but completely unproven at this point.

Does anyone remember how many teams go to Sequesterville, and does it change from year to year?

Right now we have three teams confirmed to be there. If five teams usually make it there that would suggest both Margie/Luke and Brendon/Rachel were eliminated in Sri Lanka (or nearby), it makes no sense to send someone back from Rome to (I presume) Southeast Asia for sequester.

Regardless of destination, if the 7th-placing team were eliminated in Europe, and if sequesterville were in Asia, the 7th-placing team will be sent to Asia.

Cant be bothered to look through entire thread  :funny: can anyone fill in what we have confirmed so far i no

11th. Twinnies
10th. M/M

what else do we have Confirmed?

9th - Youtube
8th - Speculation is Brenchel, but no sighting of Margie & Luke either so both these teams are probably 8th & 7th

Hope this helps :)

Problem is 7th is non-elimination with Caroline & Jennifer.  I got a gut feeling (could be wrong), Margie & Luke are 8th.

For some reason I have a feeling that there were only 6 teams left when Caroline & Jennifer got NEL? Which would mean both Margie & Luke and Brenchel are out, but again I'm only guessing, and could be totally wrong.

That would make sense, given the recent pattern. Don't think they'll have the second NEL so soon.  So we'll likely see the next two boots before last NEL, or our 6th-place finisher, NEL, and then that would be it.

Lots of assumptions here!

Let's also consider that just because there has always been a sequester....does NOT mean there always will be. Things could change at any time.

So...we have NO teams confirmed to be there...for now. :tup:

Locations for sequesters change. I know of ones in Mexico, Portugal, Thailand for sure. Season 23 was in ITALY. So location may or may not be helpful.

I think who travels changes. Depending on the season, I think both the 4th and 5th team remaining have been decoys. We have some idea from the Elim Station footage as well. I think in 14 that Mike and Mel went, just for a day... and they were eliminated 6th...meaning prob 2 teams either went straight to a hotel in finish city or ran decoy or just travelled with production.
 
Lots of options...

Thanks for your valuable input peach! I think that the sequesterville location is quite important too in terms of cost issue. I mean it really doesn't make economic sense to fly a team eliminated in Italy back to say, China. :lol:

Sequesterville depends where the first legs are. 23 started in South America then to Europe, so Italy is convenient.  22 in Oceania, 21 in China, 24 in China, 19 in Asia, so Thailand was the location.

Is it possible that Brenchel and Margie & Luke are already eliminated in an elimination KOR leg?
whoever arrived last at the halfway pitstop got eliminated, and the one who arrived last at real the pitstop is also eliminated
and that would  be Brenchel and Margie Luke

assuming both of them really are out.....

Kegalle, Sabaragamuwa, Sri Lanka
Tuesday, November 26, 2013
 
today i arrived to millennium elephant orphanage! was a bit sad to say good bye to nishan and his mother, that works at the guest house i've stayed at two times in kandy. but im sure i will be back again. today i've got showed around the elephant orphanage, otherwise i haven't done much. i watched when the elephants had their "play time" looking for fruits that got hidden for them around a field. there were also an american tv-show called amazing race that were filming here today! i arrived on the best day, because tonight there is bbq for dinner. nicenice. and tomorrow at 7 i will meet my elephant rani for the first time, and do some teaching for local kids. exciting!


If TAR was filming on Nov 26 in Sri Lanka, looks like Leg 6 was there. That lets Phil fly to Rome on the 27 and teams fly in on 28 for Leg 7.

They still send eliminated teams to a resort somewhere to await the end of the race, so I guess you can say the elimination station still exists. I'm not sure why they stopped filming those videos, but I expect someone around here will know. My best guess is that the budget for the show was cut and one of the ways they are saving money is to stop filming the elimination station videos.

LOL...it was partly cloudy and 35 degrees was the high.  She doesn't look like she is in that kind of weather.  So, I would guess photo shopped, is old or the float just had pictures of them.  I really can't even imagine a Brenchel float anyway (unless it was as part of a TAR or CBS float).  But, I guess I didn't want to discount it when I saw it.  :)

Maybe the 8th leg isn't to be Italy, it could be in Western European country such as Belgium, Luxembourg or the Netherlands.

TAR2 and TAR13 have the fewest countries in standard format (total of 8 countries, including USA) - not include Family Edition

At least we have Leg 6. However, if Margie & Luke & Brenchel were the last 2 teams in Leg 5, it seems likely that they were eliminated in Legs 5 & 6. Although if Rome was Leg 7, it would be hard to see how Caroline & Jennifer got that far behind to get NELed.

I also likes when there are at least 9-10 countries, in a season.
This season there are so far, 4 countries on 7 legs, so no more double legs in one country!!!!

I'd love a task in Gibraltar but I think it's unlikely given the recent tension on the Gibraltan-Spanish border.

Tensions.........that is funny in a way. The tensions go back to the 1930s and the Spanish Civil War. Franco and the Republicans tried to get the Brits out of Gibraltar. The Spanish government locks the border gate every now and then, but it disrupts the local Spanish population that crosses and works in Gibraltar lots more than the residents of the "Rock."

I'm to post this here because we don't have a confirmation on this. I saw early this tweet and later SteKay did the same and asked me for a proper translation, and it has appeared on Sucks the whole conversation:

(http://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/xq90/545/c4wa.png) (http://imageshack.com/i/f5c4wap)

Jonander is asking if is real that Brenchel have been seen on Seville. When I asked him for the source of that info, he replied that it's coming from a friend, but he thinks that he's playing a joke on him.

So the accuracy of this info is not 100 % until we can find any other proof of it.

I have been playing with the photo more and more.  Cropped, lightened, etc.  Added some group names so it is easier to know who we are talking about (sorry I get easily confused)....

(http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab68/memmathis/PlazadeEspana2_zps80ad11d0.jpg)

Group 1: May be crew or maybe a local media? The lady on the right of the group def has a regular camera - also it is def two women.

Group 2: I am pretty sure that is Dave on the right, no matter what I do to the image it is def grey hair and does not appear to be a cap. Height is right for him too.  His son maybe the individual on this left?

Group 3:  The one on the left is not a Globetrotter and I think he is too tall to be Leo.  His hair is too dark to be John too.  The person on the right with the smaller backpack could be a female or is it possibly Leo?  I don't recognize the back packs on either of these two, if they had a green tint I would. Note: From playing with tints/hues, etc, if you add a little more yellow (just a little) the back packs are more of a greenish color. If you adjust the hue quite a pit you will get this: 

<a href="http://s850.photobucket.com/user/memmathis/media/PlazadeEspana3Hue_zps30e61fb6.jpg.html" target="_blank">[/url]

Group 4:  Looks to be two women possibly, for sure the one on the right is.  Neither with blonde hair though.  Also note the one on the right definitely looks to have long hair and be brunette (the one with the beanie like Jessica has been known to wear, but I think Meagan from the YT team wears them too).  The one on the left at least has shoulder length hair which could be auburn.

Group 5:  Looks like all crew people, but the three of them could include a racer for all I know...they are harder to make out than the ones in the front so to speak.  :)

This is a super weird shot, as well as the Cowboys one. When are racers allowed to sit around and be interviewed?? ???

My take
Gp 1 production
Gp 2 production, one on right has on long coat or skirt...
Gp 5 could be cameraguys as well...or not

I have a hard time believing that there any teams in there.  It looks entirely like production staff to me.   

I would imagine that teams would be heading for hotels and downtime, not lingering in the cold once they finish racing.

The pics are so grainy, though, can't be sure of anything.

The place is the same. The angle where pics were taken from are different. Check the position of the white cloth. In cowboys pics is behind them. In the other one, is ahead of the person who took the pic.

For anyone who is unsure, the pit stop location is being used to conduct the post-leg debriefing interview of the teams after they check in. For whatever reason, production chose that very public venue to film the interviews. (Phil also interviews teams on the mat, but the debrief interviews are the ones we usually see in an episode or as an insider video posted after the broadcast. The bright white lights and reflective white sheets are used to make sure the Racers are not in shadow during the recording of the interview, moreso with the use of HD.

Afghanimals are safe after this leg and there is a high possibility they finished the leg first.

Here is part of the conversation where he gave me that info:

He: I saw a team. I dont know who they are. 2 guys.
Me: There are 3 teams of two guys. Can you describe them a bit. (Father-son) (2 tall black guys) (2 guys with beards)
He: The guys with beards!!!!! Yes hahahaha I think that they won the race today, but I am not 100% sure. Hope my info helped you

*I then showed him a picture of Leo/Jamal and he confirmed it*

Aren't there 4 teams of guys, with Jet and Cord?

I just don't know that Rachel looks like she is in racing clothes, but I really can't tell what she has on.  And, of course it is Rachel and she can come up with some outfits for sure.

I guess what bothers me, is that I do think she in Brendon are in the photo earlier with all those production people and it really makes me wonder if they aren't traveling with production as a decoy team.  I think someone mentioned earlier that sometimes the decoys travel with production.

But, maybe I have wanted this so bad that I am afraid to say they are or aren't in!   :funny:

To everyone who is saying the Brencel is a decoy because they did an interview in a public place, doesn't this make Jet and Cord a decoy as well? They did an interview in the same spot.

For some reason I don't think its Brenchel, maybe its Jessica and John. And I doubt they are decoys, have we ever seen decoy teams doing interviews before?

Rachel does wear pants and especially leggings. The high was 69 today, which may not seem cold to some, to people who have spent their last few years in a warm climate it can seem a little chilly. 

That is definitely not John & Jessica being interviewed.

Are the Cowboys, Afghanimals and Brenchel the only teams spotted today?  Is it possible that big group with crew in front of the fountain at the Plaza de Espana, is the production crew with a couple of eliminated teams (decoys)?

If they have done public interviews this season, I am going to keep my fingers crossed that Brenchel is not a decoy team (today at least)...since we don't know of boot order today it is possible they were eliminated today.

I'm guessing the boards were buzzing with disgruntled fans upset about best teams leaving so CBS must drag out brenchel from elimination and use them as decoys so there fans still watch show? I need hard proof before I get my hopes up!

If that is indeed Brenchel, it would make sense, as we know one of the Sri Lanka legs (Leg 6) was a NEL as Caroline and Jennifer's Speed Bump was spotted on Leg 7 in Rome. That would make Margie and Luke's elimination in Leg 5. Hooray!

I can only think of one instance, some seasons ago, when a team that was eliminated was sent to a city in the Netherlands IIRC and were photographed by the local media, and interviewed for one outlet. There was one cameraman with them. At the time, the detectives deduced that it was a decoy.
I've never seen or heard of production doing those debriefing interviews with one much less more than one eliminated team. The Cowboys were pretty clearly interviewed there; whether the other team is Brendon and Rachel I can't tell, and I think we'd need something more than a distant behind from the backside view to be sure.
Until there is evidence to show otherwise I'm going to maintain my assumption that production was doing the post-leg debriefing interviews of the teams at the pit stop before the teams went to their hotel or possibly prepped for a release to the next leg after a short rest period. (TAR 19 in Japan, folks).

Based on this post in the timeline summary...

Spanish Steps on 28 Nov and Seville on 3 Dec points towards 2 legs in between. What evidence did we have for Rome II anyway?

16 Nov: Los Angeles
17 Nov: -
18 Nov: Guangzhou I (1)
19 Nov: Guangzhou II (2)
20 Nov: -
21 Nov: Kota Kinabalu (3)
22 Nov: Kuala Lumpur (4)
23 Nov: -
24 Nov: Colombo (5)
25 Nov: -
26 Nov: Kandy (6)
27 Nov: -
28 Nov: Rome (7)
29 Nov: ?
30 Nov: ?
1 Dec: ?
2 Dec: ?
3 Dec: Seville (10)

And, if I have read correct, Phil's tweet was correct 12 shows and 21 days...we are looking at filming ending about Friday the 6th?  And, probably only two more legs?

From the quote Alenaveda got from the newspaper in Seville, we're getting very close to the last leg.

I'd be shocked if this time all of Oceania, Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America are left out of the race.

I have hoped for Mexico for more than 20 seasons and I've got a feeling that it may finally happen this time.

The only intermediate point with multiple daily non-stops & dozens of flight connections, westbound from Spain, towards the USA, and with scores of daily direct flights to almost anywhere in the USA (unless they backtrack through the UK) and which also belongs in both, the Caribbean and Latin America, is Cancun. 

So we have actually begun our approach to Cancun and our seats and trays are in the upright position!

I have a feeling that there will be a double leg in Rome or Italy. For leg 9, I think they travelled somewhere else in Europe. A single leg in Africa is highly unlikely. Since there were no sightings in between Rome and Seville, I guess is that they went somewhere in Balkans or Eastern Europe. My guess is Serbia. It's a new country, and a flight from Rome to Belgrade would be quick. If not Serbia, a country like Malta would fit in perfectly too!

That's a possibility yes, as Rome I would have most likely been an elimination leaving us with 6 (?) teams left, so either Leg 8 or Leg 9 was also an NEL, which means another elimination before Seville

There are 2 (Iberia & Aeromexico) flights from Madrid to Mexico City. There are many other locations in Central and South America served very well from Madrid or Lisbon. I think this is where the next leg will be taking place.

If there wont be any new Central American country, TAR 23 will have the worst route in the history of The Amazing Race. I hate double legs and will sign that with my own blood.

I don't Mexico would solely save this season's route, especially since it would be the last leg (before coming back to the US). If they really skipped Africa this season, the only things that could save the route are new European countries. Or some visited waay back

Yeah, but you don't know when Marie did their interview and the source said that cowboys were the last ones to do their interview, so that could really tell they were last on this leg. Do I understand this correctly?

I've been talking to Monkey_D_Fede, the source of the Twitter pic. Here is his info.

- He took the cowboys pic at about 3.10pm Seville time
- He saw a father/son team, grey haired dad (I presume Dave and Connor) at 1.20 finishing the leg
- He didn't see any other teams
- He says the Cowboys looked happy in their confessional thing

I hope they aren't eliminated! Based on the time of the pic, you can probably say Cowboys checked in around an hour after Dave and Connor?

So, there's 4 days between Leg 7 and Leg 10, and there's no sightings in-between. I think one possibility is that teams drove a part of the way between Italy and Spain, I think a leg in the Italian-French-Spanish countryside could be an option :gnome

Because he was working on the zone, and could only be free for taking pics after he finished work. He saw what happened from there. And he told me they were the last because he watched when the horse in the PS was retired from there after the cowboys arrived and were received by Phil:

Post by: theschnauzers on December 04, 2013, 09:14:24 PM
Just remember, opinion is not fact. Unless a team has clearly been seen in a location, their presence is an opinion, not a fact.

Same thing about whether there are or aren't legs between previously identified locations where legs were documented. Those are opinions, and not fact.

Now, at some point, we will have a collection of facts, and a collection of opinions and the combination will likely yield to explaining the gaps in what was not observed. But (and this is important) that association may not turn out to be accurate with what we learn later or when the episode or leg finally airs.

In other words, folks, as I like to say, "assumptions are dangerous."

That guy is wearing the exact same jacket that Brenden has. He has the exact same build and hair as Brenden. His team mate is a girl. They are being interviewed in the same position the cow boys were being interviewed, meaning they are a team. It was already speculated that there was a team missing when they were spotted in Italy and now it's obvious that that team was Brenden and Rachel and not Margie and Luke.

Because he was working on the zone, and could only be free for taking pics after he finished work. He saw what happened from there. And he told me they were the last because he watched when the horse in the PS was retired from there after the cowboys arrived and were received by Phil:

From a logistical point of view, wouldn't it make sense to retire the horse after each team checked in? I am coming to terms with the reality that the Cowboys are probably out, but I highly doubt that the horse would stay at the pit stop mat in between teams checking in?

If that is the case, do they even bother interviewing that supposed decoy teams?
at the very least Brenchel & Cowboys are not that decoy teams. whether the interview is about their elimination or not, there's no way we can find out.

I wouldn't be surprised if Leg 11 was in Madrid since the producers are going to have to fly across the Atlantic somehow. The only other place the producers could go to in Western Europe are Ireland and England. That being said, a Central America/Caribbean leg is welcome as well.

This isn't a live sighting, but there is a very serious wind storm causing high winds and flooding in a good part of western Europe including Great Britain and Ireland, and apparently centered on the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark.

Not knowing what route or flights may have been planned by production at this stage of the Race, it is possible alternate legs or routes may have had to be used since this storm would impact rail, highway and air routes throughout much of Europe.

And there's another storm in the eastern Atlantic that already has winds exceeding gale force up to 60 mph near the Azores and expected to head towards Europe, and which may become a subtropical or tropical storm before then.

There's no certainty about whether either storm system is having an impact on filming, but it is something to be aware of.

Continuing the storm report..........there is 1.5 inches of ICE on the ground and everything else here in Dallas........storm is moving to the east. Temps are expected to remain below the freezing point till Monday afternoon.......Freezing rain is still falling at this time.

It will certainly be interesting to see where they are trying to end up in the US.

Power outages have affected 250,000 customers in Dallas/FtWorth metropolitian area.............figure 3 people per customer and means about 3/4 of a million people without power. DFW Airport is basically shut down. Airport officials handed out 3,000 cots last night for stranded passengers. All hotels are fully booked in airport area.

Post by: theschnauzers on December 06, 2013, 10:53:02 AM
Here in the midwest that system came through earlier this week and brought dense fog for a couple of days, with a slight amount of freezing drizzle, and then replaced with arctic cold temperatures starting yesterday and is expected to continue through the coming week; we're also expecting our first real snowfall of the season this weekend (Sunday) to ho go with the temperatures with lows dropping to zero or just below in F.

The system bringing the ice storm to the central US and severe t-storms and heavy snow to the central and eastern US now will be followed by another storm coming ashore in California, and that is the one that will bring the snow to the central US later this weekend, and that one will move to the east coast by the beginning of the coming work week.

I don't think there been another edition of the Race that was actually affected by so much severe weather since the Family Edition (season 8, with several landfalling hurricanes in 2005) was filmed as this one has faced and is potentially facing during this fortnight.

Based upon the obvious hint in the live sightings threads, be aware of the following in terms of the weather.
The final city weather is currently at 37 F with clear sky. However, a winter weather advisory will be in effect by (Saturday) morning in the surrounding areas, and there is a 70 percent chance of rain or snow tomorrow with the forecast morning low of 30 and a high late tomorrow of 43. That could lead to periods of icing on roadways and surfaces.

Just passing it on, just in case. It's the first time I can ever remember that weather was a potential issue in the final city.

As for the possible night leg in Vegas, the weather might account for no good sightings. I don't think tourists are gonna be out on The Strip for long in 35-degree temps lol....especially on a Friday night.

Pretty surprising stuff that it ended before Sunday. It looked as if they were on pace to end on Monday.  And a night final leg in Vegas is such a pure joy to learn about, and when the episode airs? Wow!

I sort of hoped that this would be the season where the eventual winners would destroy the other top teams so badly that they would cross the finish line while teams 2 & 3 were still in penultimate city.  Doesn't look like it, and I hardly think the staff will allow what happened to David & Jeff and Joe & Bill to happen ever again.

Finally, I'm glad it wasn't in Pittsburgh. That would have been a painful miss (if they went through there, then so be it, but as long as that wasn't the end city, that is fair enough).

So I'm a little confused, mainly because the producers have done an excellent job of hiding the final legs of this race.

In Rome we definitely had:

Globetrotters
Cowboys
Afghanimals
Dave & Connor
Jessica & John,
Caroline and Jennifer.

Then when we got to Seville we think we might have Brenchel still in it and be down to five teams.

Surely the win will have come (unfortunately) from one of the first four teams?

Not necessarily. JJ were likely eliminated in Rome. Seville there were 5 teams racing, 2 of which appear to be Cowboys and Brenchel and possibly the Aphganimals. The other 2 teams are unconfirmed and we don't know the placements of those 5 or past that.

I don't think it's wise to rule out teams because of perception based on their past or how well we think they may do. The strongest don't always win.

IMO any out of Cowboys, Aphganimals, Cancer, Globtrotters, Country Girls, and Brenchel could have won or made it to the end. Until otherwise proven.

There were storms in both Europe and the US over the last week to 10 days that could have caused last minute substitutions of legs and locations. We really don't know. Las Vegas at night was apparently the end city, but that's not saying that was the plan when filming started.
As I noted above, I haven't seen a season filmed with so much potential impacts from weather since season 8. This does not mean other seasons didn't have impact but generally those were for specific legs or countries, and not potentially for half the legs as might have been the case this time. It will be very interesting to see what emerges.
And feel sorry for the Cowboys, who have to get back home to southeast Oklahoma which is part of the area with the most severe icing from the most recent storm (one to two inches thick) enough to make road travel impossible.

I think the opposite. If they won they wouldn't have been that obvious about it. and that pic was right after the race finished. They didn't look like they'd been racing to me.

I seriously doubt Rachel and Brendon would be so stupid as to violate their non-disclosure agreement. If any family member signed such an agreement, Rachel and Brendon could discuss certain things with them without violating that agreement but I suspect the results isn't among them. (If I ever got to see the current agreements -- next to impossible by the way -- I could tell what's covered one way or the other but I don't ever expect to be so lucky)
I wouldn't take the expression of Racers in those tweeted photos as evidence of anything. Unless you were there and took the photo you have no context and it's just rash speculation, not provable fact.

Whether theschnauzers is a fan of Brenchel's or not doesn't change the fact that Brenchel will go down in flames if she disclosed anything about the race that violates the usual stuff.  That has been the rule, always has and always will be. It's not just TAR; it's every show (game show, competitive reality, etc) that has a cash prize. Can't disclose information of a show before it airs (and people don't get paid until after their show airs).   

Given theschnauzers' background, gotta agree with his assessment.  And if info was disclosed, CBS won't look to that photo as proof for telling Elissa or America.  OTOH, Elissa could've gotten a read on her, so that could be pretty significant.  BTW, I would love to see a Brenchel win; as mentioned it would be a person winning two reality shows (as in two major reality shows), esp in case Hayden can't get it done on Survivor.

I agree with TS, Rachel wouldn't disclose one way or another to her sister if she won. (Or not.) She's a veteran now when it comes to reality shows. I would like for Brenchel to win but I have no clue. None of us do. We don't know the outcome of the last few places they went to or even where they were.

I was surprised that we didn't hear anything when they landed in Vegas. That place doesn't shut down at night does it? (Never been there.)   :reindeer

You have no way of knowing one way or the other, and making an assumption like that is dangerous. I happen to go out of my way to not pick "favorites" among teams, especially when they're returning Racers. I happen to have respect for all teams that have competed on the Race, because even making it is difficult, and once the Race starts it is always a personal challenge for the Racers of the highest order.

That doesn't mean that I won't disapprove of conduct on the Race that the viewers are shown, and one of the very few teams I didn't like was from season six (Jonathan and Victoria) for reasons that are obvious to anyone who has watched that season. I will like or not like what teams do on the Race, but do not extend that opinion to whether or not I am a fan of any particular team; I like all of the teams.

So please, don't try to assume what I think or don't think, especially when I have said nothing one way or the other on the topic.

Totally agree with Schnauzers I have respect for pretty much all the teams its hard enough doing the race, let alone twice or three times, however because of certain things some teams  aka The Cowboys and The Globetrotters have done in the course of the their two seasons thus far, makes me never want to root for them to win this. Just stating my own opinion here.  I would be happy to see any other teams, but especially Brenchel  :kisses, win TAR24.   :xmas110

I've got a gut feeling that the country girls did well. They didn't become active on social media until early this morning, unlike the eliminated teams who were active on finale day.

Also Caroline posted a pic yesterday ok IG of her FT and Jet, she was in race gear and jet looked like he wasn't and FT could or could not have been in race gear. She deleted the pic though.

While it's fair enough to still say that picture of Caroline, FT, and Jet means nothing (aka isn't conclusive enough to say that's your Final Three), that F3 combination would actually be legit due to the fact that some of their earlier racing would have led to it.  I don't think C/J made it, but if they did, it would have spoiled yet another all male F3 (seasons 1, 4, and 16 are the others I believe), and even more special, it would have been courtesy of an all female team.  I think a win from those three would really be special, though the inevitable loss would hurt as well.

Pretty interesting that the spring season of a leap year-less even year has featured an all male winning team everytime since the show's start.

Whoops!  What I meant is that the Frats, Clowns, and Detectives' 4th place finishes prevented what would have been an all male F3 had they switched places with Frank/Margarita, Kelly/Jon, and Brent/Caite, respectively.  I should've said that their exit prevented it yet again.  I don't think an all-male F3 is great tv, by the way.

season 21 Amsterdam maybe? 6/16/12 http://prntscr.com/29s7x1
a possible sighting.... Could be in Rome or Seville or any city in between (our missing leg)...

@kiefre
Amazing race checkpoint




p.s. It looks like Amsterdam to me, but I don't know if this is from our recent season or past...

 :cmaslol  the blue/white Metro sign and Information (Map) Kiosk should be easy to locate....  :cmas27

Edited to add: yep, appears to be Amsterdam (near Central Station)...but from what season?  :cmas5 :reindeer  :cmaslol

I know that Natalia & Nadiya, Mark & Mallory & Joey & Meghan are speculated to be the first three teams out thanks to the Timeline Spoiler Summary thread, and that either Margie & Luke or Radon are the next team eliminated but does anyone have any idea of how far the other teams got?  As for which team I want eliminated fourth, I hope it's Radon -- I couldn't stand Rachel in Big Brother and I didn't watch the season she & Brendon were on simply because they were on it -- and got far!

Nah that's a different one. The one Peach posted was teaser video they aired on tv. This one is a fan made-intro.  :xmas49

Everyone knows Brendon and Rachel's couple name is Brenchel, where did you get Radon from!?

Maybe because Rachel Reilly claims she's a brilliant mad scientist according to a certain BB12 HouseGuest and Belle is paying homage to the element of radon by it. :lol:

Or... Rachel and Brendon.

These bizarre made up names that aren't readily apparent to the non-cool people like myself are getting kind of tedious. It's not just this one, there have been 3 or 4 that had me scratching my head for a while before I figured them out. Maybe we need a glossary or an Amazing Dict
