If they start in Wellington, They'll probably connect to somewhere through Auckland. Possibly heading to Fiji or Samoa.

AKL screams Chile to me because LAN does AKL>SCL and I think Air New Zealand does also. Fiji and Samoa are rather useless places to visit and they would be better as penultimate legs IMO.

It won't surprise me if they do to Chile either. Los Angeles/San Francisco probably won't be out of the question either.

Flights to Chile leave in 6 hours and no sign they have started yet.

Yeh just found out he is in Queenstown. I thought maybe it was a one off pro-am day yesterday but I think he is playing today as well. Well we don't know where they are off to yet, could be a NZ first leg before travelling off overseas? Could be a chance of a suprise the finish line greeter? :)

I think South American would be likely for Leg 1 or 2, depending if they stay in NZ.

But what we have to remember that if they are having pre-arranged flights, we have to look for flights that producers can get ahead on (like non-stop flights), as well as connecting flights for split flights for the teams.

They could also do something like Salta in TAR20 IIRC where everyone flew on the same flight to Buenos Aires and split on two separate flights to Salta.

Sounds logical to me. They'd all get into Santiago on the same flight and then go somewhere else on different flights.

It's a fairly obvious point, but the flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Siem Reap arrived at 8:10 PM. The racers were seen at Ankhor Wat the next day. Therefore, I conclude there was an HOO for the teams to wait out.

Unless the production team made the racers take a flight from Ho Chi Minh City the next morning (there were a couple of choices) so they could get ahead of the racers.

They do look different but I think it's just a different font and it still says "The Amazing Race Australia"

It isn't surprising me that we aren't getting that much spoilers. 7's in house production company usually really good with keeping spoilers for their other reality shows under wraps (My Kitchen Rules which is also produced in house has about half of their episodes filmed in public (for the People's Choice and Food Truck challenge's) and we have heard no spoilers online for them.)

JSM is right about the fish massage being super common on Pub Street (had one there myself. Weirdest feeling ever), but I don't believe the photos are showing that. I think they're just showing the ladies in a tuk tuk.

No leg confirmed for Vietnam yet, Ho Chi Minh was probably a connection to Siem Reap.

That's what I was thinking too. They flew from Sydney to Siem Reap with a layover in Ho Chi Minh City. I don't think there was enough time for a night leg in Ho Chi Minh City and a leg the next day at Ankhor Wat.

There is the off chance of a TBC leg 1 (Sydney to Ho-Chi-Minh to Ankhor Wat) but the odds of that happening is low (10-15%)

I thought I'd throw out some speculation as to where TAR Australia might be after leaving Namibia yesterday. A few weeks back, I saw a tweet from someone who thought they saw an Amazing Race production team at the airport in Nairobi. He seemed to think they were traveling on to somewhere else from Nairobi. So, I've been expecting a leg in Africa, but not in Namibia! If they were traveling to Namibia, I'd expect them to go through Johannesburg. I was expecting a leg in Tanzania, Ethiopia, Somalia, Uganda or some other part of Kenya (maybe Ngorongoro Crater). So, given that they left Namibia yesterday, they could be in one of those countries today (unless it was yesterday afternoon). Anyone searching might want to keep an eye on those areas. Unfortunately, my time will be limited today but will try to catch up tonight. :(
Title: Re: TAR Australia 3 SPECULATION and DISCUSSION of Spoilers
Post by: Bookworm on March 16, 2014, 11:11:01 AM
I think that Leg one will be in the Auckland area (unless they had several starting tasks before flying)
Legs two and three look like they're in Siem Reap and Phuket.
Leg four is in Namibia.

This is a great route! It's MUCH better than TAR 24......

Post by: Brannockdevice on March 16, 2014, 03:29:05 PM
Finally! An awesome route! Haha screw Tar 24 :P

So from my understanding, legs 1 & 2 are in Siem Reap, leg 3 is in Phuket, and leg 4 is in Namibia. I personally think that leg 5 will also be in Namibia. One leg could be on the Skeleton Coast and the other in a type of safari leg, such as Etosha National Park.

Also, I believe Namibia is going to be the only African country visited. After this they'll probably go up to Europe and from there to the Americas.

Title: Re: TAR Australia 3 SPECULATION and DISCUSSION of Spoilers
Post by: theamazingracer21 on March 17, 2014, 11:30:30 PM
I think that the route will go Africa-South America-Central America (or maybe North America)-NZ then finish in Australia

I agree. After Africa they'll probably go up to Europe for a single leg, then on to South America for two legs in the same spot, then probably up to North America for two more, and the penultimate leg being in East Asia with a final in New Zealand
Title: Re: TAR Australia 3 SPECULATION and DISCUSSION of Spoilers
Post by: Glamazon Racer on March 18, 2014, 02:20:37 AM
I would really love 3 or more legs in the Americas - TARAus hasn't produced anything memorable in Europe to this point, so if they go to Europe, I hope they can come up with something better.
Title: Re: TAR Australia 3 SPECULATION and DISCUSSION of Spoilers
Post by: Air on March 18, 2014, 06:58:31 AM
I could see a Double Namibia>Germany>Iberia> x2 South America>x1 Central America>x1 North America situation occurring, with one extra variable leg.

Post by: Plaidmoon on March 18, 2014, 08:56:56 AM
If the sighting from the Philadelphia airport I just posted a while ago is correct (and that seems a BIG IF), then it implies a few things. First of all, TAR Aus 3 probably isn't going to Europe or if they did, it was just for one leg (doubtful). There was time for one leg since they were spotted in Namibia. There are a few possibilities. One, it could be they had another leg in Namibia, somewhere they had to fly to, probably the Skeleton Coast. Second, they could have had a leg elsewhere in Africa. Third, as I mentioned, they could have had one leg in Europe, probably in a major transportation hub - Paris, London, Frankfurt? Finally, since they were seen at the Philadelphia airport and presumably waiting for a flight, they could have had a leg in Philadelphia a couple of days ago. I think we would have seen some sightings from that though, even if they were having a snowstorm. I checked and if they were coming from Namibia to Philadelphia on the fastest flight combination for a Sunday evening/Monday morning, they would have switched planes in, wait for it, Peach, Atlanta.  :groan:

Overall, the timing of this sighting doesn't seem right to me. It's too soon.
Title: Re: TAR Australia 3 SPECULATION and DISCUSSION of Spoilers
Post by: NMC on March 18, 2014, 05:35:31 PM
I found a tweet that may be a sighting of TAR Australia or may be a sighting of a team from TAR 24.

Breanne Lloyd ‏@lloydbre 16h
Just met people competing in the amazing race while waiting for our flight...how cool is that?!
12:47 PM Pacific Daylight Time - 17 Mar 2014


From what I can gather, she's trying to fly from Philadelphia to North Carolina but is having troubles with the snowstorm cancelling flights. I'd be surprised if TAR Australia is in the USA already but I suppose they could have done a quick leg in Europe after leaving Namibia and then heading here. I'm also not sure what foreign destinations would fly into Philadelphia en route to somewhere else. Perhaps one of our air travel gurus would know.

I've asked her for more details. I think it's likely she ran into one of the TAR 24 teams.

Bur TAR 24 finished filming months ago. :lol:
Title: Re: TAR Australia 3 SPECULATION and DISCUSSION of Spoilers
Post by: Jimmer on March 18, 2014, 06:23:49 PM

I haven't heard back from the woman who saw "people competing in the amazing race" at the Philadelphia airport, but now I believe that she probably did see TAR Australia. Why? More sightings yesterday, from Las Vegas!

janice huang ‏@janicehuang7 15h
the amazing race (orange team) just came by our boutique and asked where is liberace's car lol and then ran off
2:55 PM Pacific Daylight Time - 18 Mar 2014 from Paradise, NV

Makenna ‏@makennananana 15h
Just saw people from the Amazing Race!
3:20 PM Pacific Daylight Time - 18 Mar 2014 from Paradise, NV

I figured that they were looking for the Liberace museum. However, Wikipedia says the Liberace museum closed in 2010. It is in Paradise, NV where the tweets came from.

Update:

I found that one of Liberace's cars is on display at the Cosmopolitan Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. I don't
know where they were seen but Paradise is a couple of miles (or more) away on the east side of the airport.


The Las Vegas Strip is actually in Paradise, NV and not Las Vegas, NV. It sounds weird but it's true. The Cosmopolitan is one of the newer and fancier hotels on the Strip. The Tweeters were most likely on the Strip.

Agree with you about the first four locations. However, the whole Russia/Ukraine thing makes me doubt that they're going to Russia.
As for Las Vegas, TAR Israel 3 went there and TAR24's final leg is there, so Vegas isn't THAT interesting IMO

I wouldn't be surprised if they did. The French and Israeli editions both did (French went did a leg in each Hawaii and LA, while Israeli did 2 or 3 legs around Vegas and the desert) and as long as they are good legs there is nothing wrong with it .

So I just realized that this season has visited 5 continents so far from what we know (Oceania, Asia, Africa, Europe and North America)
IF they go to somewhere in South America then TARAus will be the first international version to visit 6 continents in a race and the first since (arguably TAR11) TAR5.
Title: Re: TAR Australia 3 SPECULATION and DISCUSSION of Spoilers
Post by: theamazingracer21 on March 23, 2014, 02:26:35 AM
With South America the only continent that didn't get visited during the first 2 seasons and the fact that we have the World Cup and Olympics in Brazil in the next few years, it is likely that they will have a leg or two in South America.

Even if this isn't true (but more so if it is) I am amazed with the money that 7 put in to TARAu3 (if only CBS could do the same for TARUS *Hint**Hint*)

I'm incredibly impressed as well with the route that we have so far. I've heard Portugal on the locations thread so that would be a cool location to see. 6 continents is and would be a huge feat for an international version.

We haven't really had many photo sightings just word of mouth sightings which is exciting in it's own right. I'm crossing my fingers that we get 6 continents since it sounds like they've visited all of the 5 continents from the last two seasons and only South America remains uncharted.

I wouldn't take the Las Vegas sighting as legitimate, based on timing and the sighting in Portugal, I honestly don't think they went to North America... but you never know! So far we have:
Cambodia
Thailand
Namibia
Russia
Portugal (would fit in very well between Russia and Argentina)
Argentina (production will probably make use of LAN's Buenos Aires to Auckland's flight (that still exists right? CMIIW!) to get teams back to the motherland! Very exciting route if you ask me :)

It's a good ratio if you're a kiwi :lol: Don't get me wrong, I only really love the teams based on their personality... but when you have 4 million vs 21 million people, one would think there'd be more interesting Aussie teams. For this theme, I just hope they didn't cut an interesting Aussie team for a boring NZ one to fill a quota or vice versa... though it would be stupid not to have six/five teams from each country for Aus vs NZ :funny:

I wouldn't get too excited about such ideas, this is channel seven's first season doing this. I'm honestly surprised they've decided to choose the farflung locations they have, I expected a cheaper version with closer locations to Aus/NZ.

Also wanna say that I love that new clue... looks a lot cleaner than the old one!

I am not a fan of the new clue (the words are too close together), I liked the more spaced out version that they used for season 1&2.

I also have to say that it should be interesting to see teams negotiate the language barrier in some of these countries.

Title: Re: TAR Australia 3 SPECULATION and DISCUSSION of Spoilers
Post by: SamualDude on April 01, 2014, 04:04:54 AM
So we have an Ayers Rock start line, Known asia legs in Cambodia and Thailand, At least one leg in Nambia, Two known legs in Russia and Portugal, one known leg in Buenos Aries and the finale in Victoria. that accounts for 7 legs, I'd imagine we'll be getting 12 legs again so there are 5 unknown locations

There is quite a gap between the Portugal leg and the Buenos Aries which makes me think we'll get a leg or two in the US or North America in general. Also a gap between Buenos Aries and the final leg so we could possibly get another leg in South America.

So far I am LOVING this route. Some good locations and I'm still crossing my fingers for a country that is entirely new to the franchise.
Title: Re: TAR Australia 3 SPECULATION and DISCUSSION of Spoilers
Post by: theamazingracer21 on April 01, 2014, 05:20:16 AM
I think Nambia will be a double leg, I could see Portugal having 2 legs and another country in America (North or South)

Also just for reference when was TARAuVNz filming and when did the Russia/Ukraine issue escalate. I could see production possibly cancelling a leg in Russia for safety reasons.

So far I am LOVING this route. Some good locations and I'm still crossing my fingers for a country that is entirely new to the franchise.
I doubt we will see a new country to the franchise as there is very limited amount if any of countries that are yet to be visited.

I don't think that New Zealand will be in the final leg, I think it will be in the penultimate leg. The Race looks like this so far:
Leg 1: Siem Reap, Cambodia
Leg 2. Thailand
Legs 3 and 4: Namibia
Leg 5: St. Petersburg Russia
Leg 6 or 7: Portugal
Leg 9 or 10: Argentina
Leg 10 or 11, or both: New Zealand
Leg 12: Victoria, Australia

Looking at dates, I only think there is time for 1 leg in Namibia, because looking at dates, they were in Thailand, on the 13th, the Namibia spotting was on the 15th, and they were in Russia on the 17th. I don't think there is enough time to go Thailand --> 2 legs of Namibia --> Russia in 4 days. Any thoughts?

You can spec NZ all you want but there's no actual proof of NZ being visited at all... I still consider what happens between Argentina and Australia as unknown.

Also re Thailand, I don't think we can assume the leg was run on the 13th just because the picture was posted then. Is there enough time to travel from Thailand to Namibia, run a leg and then have teams purchasing tickets in Windhoek airport by the 15th? I was starting to think that the photo was uploaded a day or more later, I can't see how they make it to Windhoek and run a leg there in time otherwise.

I do think that our airport sighting is them purchasing tickets straight to Russia.. I had a look at flights and the Windhoek -> Frankfurt flight via Air Namibia seems a viable option to get them to Europe and onto Russia... but it would help if some flight guru could do a much better analysis.

This is how I think it pans out, based on our sightings:

Mar 9: Start at Uluru; fly via Sydney and HCMC to Siem Reap and complete night market tasks
Mar 10: Angkor Wat sightings + PitStop
Mar 11: Leg rest/travel to Thailand
Mar 12: Run leg in Thailand -- assuming delayed uploaded photo on the 13th
Mar 13: Fly to Namibia
Mar 14: Run leg in Namibia
Mar 15: Windhoek Airport sighting -- purchase tickets and fly to presumably Russia?
Mar 16: Unknown --possibly a Russia I leg?
Mar 17: Run Saint Petersburg leg
Mar 18: Unknown
Mar 19: Unknown
Mar 20: Run Lisbon leg
Mar 21: Unknown
Mar 22: Unknown
Mar 23: Unknown
Mar 24: Unknown
Mar 25: Unknown
Mar 26: Run Buenos Aires leg
Mar 27: Unknown
Mar 28: Unknown
Mar 29: Unknown
Mar 30: Run final leg in Victoria

Things I want to know/note:
1. Why is there only two days between Saint Petersburg and Lisbon -- does this suggest a leg in close proximity to Lisbon (Spain anyone?)
2. Where do we think they went between Lisbon and Argentina? Is a NA stop possible? I was thinking Brazil was the most logical place, but where else could they have gone?
3. We lose a day for the int'l date line towards the end of the race, so if there's a leg between Buenos Aires and Victoria it can't have a day dedicated to travel -- the entire leg would need to be run the day before the finale or the day after the BA leg.
Title: Re: TAR Australia 3 SPECULATION and DISCUSSION of Spoilers
Post by: Jimmer on April 05, 2014, 08:41:32 AM
Okay, the sighting in Namibia occurred around 3 PM in Namibia on March 15.

As oval said, there is SW285 WDH-FRA 2130-0655(+1)

Also, before the Frankfurt flight, there are many flights throughout the day to Johannesburg.

And from Johannesburg, there are many night flights to places in Europe/Asia, such as Dubai, Frankfurt, Istanbul, London, Paris, Zurich, Abu Dubai, Munich, Cairo, Doha, Tel Aviv, and Amsterdam, all arriving in the morning.

Also looking at St. Petersburg, there are arrivals in the early morning on the 17th  from Berlin, Vienna , and Istanbul, and that is it. There are multiple flights coming from Moscow to St. Petersburg, where teams could easily fly into Moscow in the morning and then take a 2 hour flight over to Saint Petersburg.

Arriving from Moscow DME in the morning of the 17th we have Tel Aviv, Minsk, Vienna, Munich, Berlin, London, Lisbon, Barcelona, and Madrid

Arriving from Moscow SVO in the morning of the 17th we have Barcelona, Paris, Istanbul, Amsterdam, Rome, Frankfurt, Munich, Budapest, Venice, Prague, Nice, Belgrade, Milan, Brussels, Vienna, London, Odessa, Cairo, and Tel Aviv.

So bottom line, we have lots of places that teams can get to on the 16th and then make it to Saint Petersburg flying out the night of the 16th and arriving the 17th. The issue is that it leaves us with no time stop somewhere, do some tasks, and have a pit stop rest. It is very very unlikely to sandwich something in there, unless there would be some sort of no rest leg/KOR/TBC somewhere.

The network usually gives us the air-date about 2-3 weeks before it starts. Currently House Rules is on 7:30 Mon-Wed and 6:30 Sun. I think we have to wait for HR to go down to 3 nights a week and we can assume that the time-slot it gives up is for TARAu or we are getting an 8:30 time-slot like season 1(which isn't really 8:30 because the networks can't keep on time) but if either don't happen then we will have to wait until mid to late June (when HR should finish)

Christchurch would be the Penultimate leg before the final. Buenos Aires could be the 10th leg, according to live tweets thread the BA sighting was on March 26th (BA time).

START: Uluru/Ayers Rock, Australia
Leg 1: Siem Reap, Cambodia
Legs 2-3: Krabi, Thailand
Leg 4: Namibia
Leg 5: Saint Petersburg, Russia
Leg ??: Lisbon, Portugal
Leg 10: Buenos Aires, Argentina
Leg 11: Christchurch, New Zealand (possibly)
Leg 12: Port Campbell, Australia

It wouldn't surprise me if it is the penultimate leg but for a penultimate leg I think they would want to have it over in South America. They could potentially fly to Christchurch for the first half of the final leg, do some tasks there like a detour  then over to Victoria.

Hmmm, after looking at the promo I'm starting to think the Christchurch leg was run just after teams left Uluru. The airport cap + sheep herding look to be NZ... surely they wouldn't show that stuff if it was just before the final leg

So, are we looking at going to New Zealand in between Australia and Cambodia? Could easily happen considering we missed the start -- the Sydney Airport sighting would be AFTER the NZ portion right?

Also, there's a missing M/M spotted racing in Victoria here (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,29794.msg987127.html#msg987127). Looks like it could be the long haired Aussie guys with shaved heads? ???

Anyone just see that ad on House Rules??

FIERCE Competition against Aus vs NZ

Race travels across 90,000 Kms

Ashleigh & Jarrod were shown running through a bog course

Christie "Don't tell them any information, they're Aussies and we're competing against them"

A few other locations Grant was at, but I didn't recognise them :lol: Hopefully we can find the video online soon! :hearts:

We definitely have some puzzle pieces missing. We know that they paid a visit to New Zealand this season, right? And we assumed it would be on the way home for the final leg didn't we? Anyway, all these new promos are showing clips from a location which definitely does not look like Cambodia (which we believe is the first destination). We know that the race kicked off around Uluru, but we don't actually have proof of when it started? Is it possible that NZ is our first destination, then they flew up to Asia?

Are we sure we had a visit to the US? Idk if that was confirmed or not (and it's not listed in Oval's timeline). We do know that with 6 continents, somewhere in North America has to be visited, and US could be very likely.

Also, Idk if the spoiler caps mean that we have to have a visit to those countries, but they do have the Statue of Liberty and Christ the Redeemer Statue, so that would lead to maybe having Brazil being the missing country from that list.

I thought Vegas was a leg :S
Title: Re: TAR Australia 3 SPECULATION and DISCUSSION of Spoilers
Post by: Jimmer on June 19, 2014, 11:23:30 PM
You can spec NZ all you want but there's no actual proof of NZ being visited at all... I still consider what happens between Argentina and Australia as unknown.

Also re Thailand, I don't think we can assume the leg was run on the 13th just because the picture was posted then. Is there enough time to travel from Thailand to Namibia, run a leg and then have teams purchasing tickets in Windhoek airport by the 15th? I was starting to think that the photo was uploaded a day or more later, I can't see how they make it to Windhoek and run a leg there in time otherwise.

I do think that our airport sighting is them purchasing tickets straight to Russia.. I had a look at flights and the Windhoek -> Frankfurt flight via Air Namibia seems a viable option to get them to Europe and onto Russia... but it would help if some flight guru could do a much better analysis.

This is how I think it pans out, based on our sightings:

Mar 9: Start at Uluru; fly via Sydney and HCMC to Siem Reap and complete night market tasks
Mar 10: Angkor Wat sightings + PitStop
Mar 11: Leg rest/travel to Thailand
Mar 12: Run leg in Thailand -- assuming delayed uploaded photo on the 13th
Mar 13: Fly to Namibia
Mar 14: Run leg in Namibia
Mar 15: Windhoek Airport sighting -- purchase tickets and fly to presumably Russia?
Mar 16: Unknown --possibly a Russia I leg?
Mar 17: Run Saint Petersburg leg
Mar 18: Unknown
Mar 19: Unknown
Mar 20: Run Lisbon leg
Mar 21: Unknown
Mar 22: Unknown
Mar 23: Unknown
Mar 24: Unknown
Mar 25: Unknown
Mar 26: Run Buenos Aires leg
Mar 27: Unknown
Mar 28: Unknown
Mar 29: Unknown
Mar 30: Run final leg in Victoria

Things I want to know/note:
1. Why is there only two days between Saint Petersburg and Lisbon -- does this suggest a leg in close proximity to Lisbon (Spain anyone?)
2. Where do we think they went between Lisbon and Argentina? Is a NA stop possible? I was thinking Brazil was the most logical place, but where else could they have gone?
3. We lose a day for the int'l date line towards the end of the race, so if there's a leg between Buenos Aires and Victoria it can't have a day dedicated to travel -- the entire leg would need to be run the day before the finale or the day after the BA leg.

I'm pulling this from Oval to use as a time guage, because it's easy to use while trying to spec the route.

After talking with Oval a bit, IIRC he thinks that there is a stop at NZ before Cambodia after the Starting Line, and also thinks the Starting Line is earlier than we thought. Oval, correct me if I am wrong

Here is what we know, we have 8 countries confirmed, all but US on MrDS's list, that leaves us with 2 more countries. One MUST be in North America (maybe the US) and that leaves us with one more to work with. The issue with routing this is we have to make up ALMOST 90,000 km. (I'm getting all of this info from the media thread) After trying to map it out, that is very difficult to achieve (Unless the media people are lying, we don't know :lol:).

But here is what I think it is. What I find strange in the 4 day gap between Buenos Aires and Australia. It seems too much for Buenos Aires to be a penulitmate leg, but it's had with the international dateline. Before we were thinking NZ, but there is now a chance with NZ as leg 1, that throws that out possibly. There could be a leg after Buenos Aires in Argentina, but I think there might be an alternate solution (although I could be way off :lol:)

I propose that before the final leg after Argentina, there is a visit in the Middle East close to Dubai (it could be UAE, maybe Qatar?) Teams would not cross the Pacific, and it works well in racking up miles going all the way back eastward. This conjecture also has flight evidence to back it up.

There are some flights going from Buenos Aires to Sao Paulo on the night of March 26th

JJ8011 EZE-GRU 1910-2150 (Actually 1930-2207)
AR1248 AEP-GRU 1925-2210 (Actually 1916-2214)
JJ8015 AEP-GRU 2210-0050+1 (Actually 2249-0122+1)
AU2276 EZE-GRU 2210-0055+1 (Actually 2207-0046+1)
G3 7685 AEP-GRU 2240-0135+1 (Actually 2235-0057+1)
QR772 EZE-GRU 2320-0200+1 (Actually 0201+1-0422+1)
TK16 EZE-GRU 2355-0245+1 (Actually 0147+1-0411+1)

Then from Sao Paulo, there is a flight leaving the night of the 26th to Dubai and one in the early morning of the 27th to Istanbul and Doha!

EK8262 GRU-DXB 2325-2100+1 (Actually 2329-2015+1)
QR722 GRU-DOH 0315-2045 (Actually 0539-0047+1)
TK16 GRU-IST 0415-2145 (Actually 0518-2230)

And all these land in the late night of the 27th or early morning! This leaves plenty of time to get somewhere that has easy access to Dubai (or maybe even UAE itself) maybe Doha to run a leg on the 28th.

(I know there are flights from both Istanbul and Dubai to Doha and I don't have time to look them up)

Then, teams can also easily make it to Melbourne/Victoria by the 30th in time to run the final leg because of these leaving the 29th and with plenty of options to get to Dubai

EK406 DXB-MEL 1010-0635+1 (Actually 1132-0753+1)
QF10 DXB-MEL 1055-0735+1 (Actually 1058-0745)

As well as this leaving on the 29th arriving on the 29th from Doha to Melbourne for Grant and production crew

QR904 DOH-MEL 0055-1025 (Actually 0109-1055)

~~~~~

So after all of this flight analysis, I have an idea that there may be a missing leg in between Buenos Aires and Melbourne, in the Middle East, very likely to be Doha, Qatar or Dubai, UAE, this gives us our 10th country, as well as getting close to 90,000 km. I cannot figure out any other way to meet these criteria any other way with the timeframe we have (but this could be totally wrong idk)

I cannot figure out any other way to meet these criteria any other way with the timeframe we have (but this could be totally wrong idk)

It's really impossible, back in live sightings thread posted in March, since Argentina is truly a penultimate leg before teams returning to Australia, a trans-Pacific final leg from Argentina to Australia is approximately nearly 9,000 miles. The gap between these countries are 4 days with an extended final Pit Stop rest.

Flights to Melbourne

http://www.gcmap.com/mapui?P=eze-scl-akl-mel (http://www.gcmap.com/mapui?P=eze-scl-akl-mel)

Grant and production crew (03/27-03/29; Note: they lose one day due to International Date Line)
LAN Airlines (LA) 532, EZE-SCL, 1755-2008 (scheduled 1740-2000)
LAN Airlines 801, SCL-AKL, 2318-0356+2 (scheduled 2320-0430+2)
Virgin New Zealand (PBI) 165, AKL-MEL, 0630+2-0826+2 (scheduled 0630+2-0840+2)


Then, Grant and crew made sets for the final leg in Port Campbell.

The final three teams (03/28-03/30; the scheduled times in both LAN flights are same as above)
LAN Airlines 532, EZE-SCL, 1805-2025
LAN Airlines 801, SCL-AKL, 2344-0414+2
Virgin New Zealand 149, AKL-MEL, 0630+2-0826+2 (scheduled 0630+2-0845+2)


ETA: Legs 3 and 4 of TAR13 were the longest gap (4 days) per flights and extended Pit Stop rest.

I dislike the twist Salvage Pass. The two-hour privilege makes no sense because it'll be gone due to flights. Every team wants to keep the weak in the game, so it is an ensured NEL card.

Unless that team is not weak then they will eliminate them... plus, if the team is eliminated, that adds an NEL in the game, so that's equivalent of keeping a weak team

I'm not sure where this would go, because of the interesting way this ep was structured: it's not intro caps but more of a "season preview" as alltsa mentioned, so I'll try here.
The first picture looks like Cat/Jessie and that's definitely Dubrovnik.
The next two pictures are from Cascais, near Lisbon. In the first pic you can see Seixas palace in the background, and the second is on Rue Frederico Arouca (source (http://www.panoramio.com/photo/63842845)).
The winter pics (dogsledding/cannibal hot tub) are the most interesting. On one helmet you can see the outline of кострома/Kostroma oblast and a dogsled logo. There is an international race
(albeit out in the boonies) with an Aussie connection (video (http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x8hyjg_international-sled-dog-race-in-kost_travel&start=138)). Maybe the race goes there, or maybe production had them brought up from Kotkishevo to St. Pete. Or maybe the helmets were just made there  :) --take your pick.

Yes we do this was taken directly out of Episode 5 thread

Looks like this leg ends in a TBC, taken from the tv guide for September 1:

With no rest period between legs, teams are still racing and heading for central Russia. After a long train trip they face a testing nation v nation challenge. Teams from the losing nation face the very real prospect of being eliminated. The last team to the mat surprises all, but will a twist at the pit stop save them from elimination?

Still haven't got any media info specifically for this leg whatsoever though  (:;)

It couldn't be. I saw on Amazing Race Wikia page, that the end of Leg 5 has a no-rest Pit Stop. Since TAR18, the tradition of using a no-rest leg is giving an advantage on winning a leg or nothing.

Based on the history of TAR Aus Season 1, a double-length leg that featured two pit stops is still counted as two legs. I guess we may have the combinations of Siberia-Croatia, Croatia-Portugal, Portugal-North America, and North America-Argentina left as combined into one leg, since nobody have spotted a pit stop in these places. Hopefully it will not be the combination of Portugal-North America (like Season 2 France-Cuba), or North America-Argentina (the worst case scenario).

Ok, so I have a theory for what the "Bomb" at Leg 8's Pit Stop is most likely going to be.  Not sure if its already been said, but according to Wikipedia, there's a Fast Forward next Leg, and based on the new promo, I'm guessing it will involve shaving your head.  Having seen the spoiler photos from the Final Leg, Daniel & Ryan have significantly shorter hair, pretty much bald infact.
So, I'm assuming they go for the FF, and the "Bomb" will be the big (loss of hair) reveal to the other teams.  This is a pretty lackluster "Bomb" if you ask me, but going by TAR Oz's history, they tend to over hype upcoming events.  I.e: Leg 2's "Drama at the Pit Stop after one team breaches the rules."  :groan:

The live sightings was shot somewhere in Victoria Australia, so I think this is the final leg sightings.

Apparently the Bodybuilders and an all male team (obviously Intensive Care Nurses since they are last all male team standing as of Leg 7, but why one of them are bald :o , maybe they do some sort of Head Shaving (FF) task) make it to the final.

If this is real final 3 team, then I will be happy with any of the remaining team in Leg 7 join the final 3 except the Newlyweds blondes since they are so annoying to see them in final 3.
