Title: TAR 28 Speculation and Discussion of **SPOILERS**
Post by: georgiapeach on November 11, 2015, 01:00:50 AM
This thread is the WORKZONE of our spoilers.
 
This is where ALL the spoiler speculation/discussion of the TAR 28 race goes, NOT in the LIVE thread. It is where we try to thrash out what the LIVE sightings mean.
 
 
 
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.

Since they'll be at the first destination by tomorrow evening...might the race actually start today/tonight (if going across the ocean...which would make sense if they're wanting daylight)?  If first destination is in the Americas, the race might start tomorrow morning, but that would mean nighttime at the destination.

I think there's a very good chance the race will start today. I recommend keeping an eye out for any social media reports starting now.

I'm not sure how the timing is going to work out to get streaming out while the race is running. Maybe Phil will actually be streaming after the leg is over. If they are streaming during the leg, then I expect something like an HOO to get the action going during the announced window of time.

I like this train of thought... same time zones as the USA...  hmmm let me think..... oh oh, could this be an excuse to visit our neighbors to the north, Canada.   :grins:   Make you wonder.... Naaah! been there, done that ....  :funny:  Back to reality.....  :iok

Just speculation on my part but if they are broadcasting from the first destination they would have an idea of the approximate time flight should land and time needed to clear customs.  Then first destination could be somewhere like Hawaii where it would not be necessary to go through customs

Interesting...but what if we switch things around and make Hawaii the starting line.  If the streaming starts at  7:30PM PST then that's  5:30PM HAST.  Which means about sunset, maybe too dark to do anything.  So, how about using Guam as the starting line (technically part of the US, albeit a territory).  So Sunday 7:30PM PST is actually Monday 1:30PM ChST.  Plenty of daylight to view the start.   :)

Or they can just do what they have done countless times before and fly out of LAX in total darkness.  How exciting will that be on the live feed.   :(   :grins:

OK, back to reality...  nevermind.

Post by: clemsonbeav on November 15, 2015, 02:17:53 PM
My thoughts if Mexico City:

AeroMexico 647 - Depart 1:30 PST, Arr 6:50 CST
AeroMexico 9405 - Depart 2:05 PST, Arr 7:25 CST

Two flights to divide...

That's ~2.5 hours to pitstop.  Will the livestream be from pit stop?
Title: Re: TAR 28 Speculation and Discussion of **SPOILERS**

No teams yet, but could the starting line be in Mexico?

The first destination of the race is technically the starting line. Without it, how do you get to the second destination? :funny:

Jessica and Brittany seen in ATL.

Assuming Mexico City -
Delta 345 - Dep 4:55 EST, Arr 7:33 CST.

Still two hours from when Phil would be livestreaming.  So, we probably have teams in LAX (around 3:00 EST) and ATL around the same time...maybe first group gets a non-stop and others get to connect in ATL?  Or maybe another connection city?

FYI, flights from LAX to ATL that would have arrived now left LAX this morning (see below...but this is moot if teams started there).

Okay. It had previously been reported that with this high visibility cast that they might travel independently.

Interesting.  So perhaps no official start line?

Perhaps misunderstood then.  :)  I thought it meant independent travel from wherever they were to first destination...but perhaps you meant independent flights from LA to other connection cities, arriving approx same time.

Wait did I just see @PhilKeoghan and @AmazingRace_CBS producers on Reforma in Mexico City??

Tomas García C. ‏@tomy222  11 nov.
On a mission to find @tyleroakley  and @koreykuhl  in mexico!  Just saw the host last week in Mexico City!! @AmazingRace_CBS

Those are not from today but might be useful for later.

So we can expect Phil to be Live Tweeting from this iconic TAR landmark!  Just a guess!

If the first destination is Mexico City and Phil will be streaming in four hours from now, it means that the first leg will be a night leg, there is no time difference between CST & Mexico Time. Because of the live event, I dont think there will be HOO.

What if they travelled to MEX independently and we'll have TAR's first official starting line outside the US? It does not make any sense to start live event from the first check point, not from the starting line.

For some reason they didn't want to split teams into only two flights, that's why Mexico is the first destination - it's easily accessible.

Post by: georgiapeach on November 15, 2015, 05:39:32 PM
If teams hit the ground at 7...legs are usually <3 hours...the teams could just possibly be all checked in by live stream time.

I'm reading a lot of tweets and post that say watch live starting line.
It's weird because teams have backpacks already.
Title: Re: TAR 28 Speculation and Discussion of **SPOILERS**
Post by: Vitoko on November 15, 2015, 06:22:54 PM
There is no way we are getting a starting line in Mexico. Maybe the whole travel independently means they are booking their own flight and that's why they are not just departing from one airport

OR MAYBE...

Teams were grouped and divided at some point and to showcase the whole social media idea Phil's "GO" was done through a tv screen, phone message or a vine. So teams 1 2 3 and 4 departed from Dallas... 5 6 7 and 8 from Miami and 9 10 and 11 from LAX... just the wildest of guesses though... Not likely because then you get different starting times and that could get messy but is an idea...

I think you are right. perhaps the first VIRTUAL START?

If there was not some sort of time-staged release, then teams leaving directly from LAX had a significant advantage in not having to travel an extra 5+ hours.

That could have taken place very early this AM or even late last night. ... say from UCLA somewhere....

I'm gonna speculate what's going on here. I think the teams have been divided into groups of 3, each to different airports. From there, Phil send them a message to book flights and meet him in Mexico City at wherever. That's where the race starts. Explains why Erin is still tweeting, and the confusion over "first destination" and "starting line".

The message has been really confusing official sources say starting line and they already on the move to Mexico so that should discard the starting line that is always on the states.

I know we've been speculating that Mexico is first destination and not starting line (mostly per Phil's tweet), but how do we explain away the title of the live stream: "Don't Miss The Amazing Race 28 Starting Line Live Stream Event!

If there was a 'virtual' start instead of a 'normal' start and teams left from different cities--presumably randomly--then given that the flights arrived at different times from different cities, wouldn't that give some teams an inherent advantage just by virtue of which city they were 'selected' to leave from?  Alternatively, what if there's some sort of HoO as soon as they arrive in MEX to even things out?  (Or, the city they left from was determined from a normal start line, thus any disadvantage due to arrival time in MEX would be due to their performance in a task in LAX.)

Ok. According to official sources the livestream was supposed to be the starting line. But teams were already spotted on the move to Mexico City. Phil released a video like 1 hour ago saying that he was preparing for the livestream event but he also said that he was next to the "first cluebox" that contains the detour clue. He was standing next to the Monument to the Revolution in Mexico City. So it looks like there was no starting line live stream event and that the livestream will be from the cluebox location. What would the livestream be now? I don't know but Phil mentions a live update on the race. Maybe what he has been doing since TAR25 announcing who's on the lead or on the back. I hope this helps.

So a little less than 30 mins to get there...wondering if they took taxi or metro/bus?

Also, if they're going straight from the airport, then that means leaving airport around 9:30 CST, which is around 2 hours from when they probably landed.  That much time in customs perhaps?

Given that the teams are coming in from 3 or 4 cities and arriving at different times, then having to be a part of the live stream (which may just be a minute or two to pick up the clue or longer if interviewed), I think an HOO is probable just to even things up.

I still think they had a starting line in Los Angeles, probably indoors away from the public. I have a suspicion as to where but no proof. I think it's possible there was a challenge to assign teams to their flights. I think it's also possible that I'm completely wrong.

That's what I'm thinking. I think teams flew from Los Angeles to Mexico City with connections in the various airports they have been seen at. Phil probably took a direct flight to get there first.

Phil said off to the Detours, so perhaps both detours don't start until the morning...HOO would help mitigate differences in arrival times if they came from different cities (quasi-)arbitrarily.

There has been a provision in the contestant contracts since the beginning that the start line could be anywhere in the workd, and not limited to the U.S., and I'm starting to wonder if WRP is finally using that clause to have a start outside the U.S. for the first time. I have no specific insight other than the fact that the actual agreements/application forms from early seasons had that provision, so it is something that has always been provided for but not use, possibly until now.

So it's detour, then HoO. ???

Could they have returned to the classic TAR Leg 1 format wherein there's a task on day 1 (of the leg), followed by a HoO where teams get to sign up for departure times, followed by another task on day 2, then the pit stop?

If so, this would be exciting! :yess: :hoot: :wohoo: The recent 1st legs starting TAR14(?) only had Leg 1 filmed in a day (not including the flights going to Leg 1's main destination).

It was a taxi ride from the airport to Plaza de la República (Monumento a la Revolución) and then on foot to the MUTEM (Museo del Tequila y y del Mezcal) at Plaza Garibaldi for the Mariachi Madness detour. And it was a true Mariachi Madness! I almost felt compelled to break into the Mariachi circles and start singing! Pics on Live Sightings thread, I'm sorry they're so dark but they are taken from the outer-most mariachi circle and they were all dressing in black at night. This detour began to be solved by the first teams at around midnight local time. I was sooo happy that there was no police or security around at both locations as it showed that Mexico is a "normally" historic, pacific, enjoyable and beautiful gigantic city. I featured the MUTEM in the last TAR Design XVII Contest if you want to take a look at it.

I boosted the sound of several teams who were reading the clue, and here's what the Detour clue says:

Mariachi Madness: Make your way on foot to Plaza Garibaldi and search the crowd for a mariachi that is pretending to play.

Great Bulls of Fire: Make your way on foot to the homo... (Cole cuts off) and light up a churito (he cuts it off).

Plus, here are the Detours chosen via the vid and the sighting:

Jessica & Brittany: Bull
Brodie & Kurt: Mariachi
Marty & Hagan: Unknown
Erin & Joslyn: Unknown
Burnie & Ashley: Unknown
Matt & Dana: Mariachi
Cameron & Darius: Unknown
Scott & Blair: Bull
Zach & Rachel: Unknown
Sheri & Cole: Mariachi

Great! You heard Bulls when I heard Balls. It's gotta be bulls! I got fireworks and now I get bulls = Toritos! These are the traditional Mexican firework-toritos (little bulls):

These pics are NOT from the actual detour.

While at the mariachi detour I kept scanning the skies for the fireworks and couldn't see any. Now it is clear the "Quema de Toritos" (Burning of the Little Bulls) takes place at ground level. No wonder I couldn't find it. A fireworks artisan carries a torito on its back while fireworks go off and runs around chasing the people in traditional town fiestas.

I just wondering about something, after the last team left the live stream location, Phil said that he had to leave immediately to the next location/task location *cmiiw*. Now, let's say if there will be an HOO after Detour, why Phil needs to leave immediately knowing that teams will be staying for the rest of the night and explaining the tasks can be done in the next day?

Because of that, I speculate that the whole leg will be taking on that night, including the Pit Stop as well... Maybe someone with more info can correct me? :)

Post by: Xarles on November 16, 2015, 05:10:52 AM
Mexico spans through four time zones and three of them (bordering the US) are divided into US DST rules and Mexican DST rules. Arizona (US) and Sonora (Mexico) states don't ever switch. The Federal District / Distrito Federal in which Mexico City, the capital city, is located is on Mexican Central Time which is almost always the same as US CST. Right now it is exactly the same as US CST. Mexico goes into Daylight Saving Time two weeks after the US and comes back two weeks before.

For now just use US CST for Mexico City and don't get confused! :-) Teams met Phil around 11pm.

We were there right next to about 500 mariachis playing (500 member band sounds better than any kind of technology!). They all stood in concentric circles making kind of pathways in between. Contestants had to go through the pathways making their way from the outside to the inside like if it was a spiral. How hard it was??? It was SO loud and so beautiful that unless you stuck your ear to the instrument there was no other way that you could tell if a certain instrument was making any sound!

Seems like the blue team was seen flying out of Atlanta...so maybe this poster was just lying (possible given the seemingly random Alaska comment), or didn't know where they were actually going.

If the filming in the house comment is correct, and assuming they were sequestered in LAX, perhaps they flew 'home' on the 14th out of sequestration (which is why this sighting) and then had the virtual start line on the 15th that morning.  IDK?

Question about the flights mentioned in the timeline. Wasn't MIA the fourth city that some teams used to connection to Mexico City?

Allan Branstiter ‏@AllanBranstiter
I'm in line at LAX with a couple people who are on Amazing Race or something like that.
10:31 AM - 14 Nov 2015

Benjamin Beaver ‏@benjaminbeaver
@AllanBranstiter Any details?  Were these contestants?  Producers?
3:25 PM - 15 Nov 2015

Allan Branstiter ‏@AllanBranstiter
@benjaminbeaver Two contestants (women in matching blue uniforms) and two cameramen. I think I saw another team later.
4:16 PM - 15 Nov 2015

Benjamin Beaver ‏@benjaminbeaver
@AllanBranstiter very cool thanks! Any idea where they were headed?
5:01 PM - 15 Nov 2015

Allan Branstiter ‏@AllanBranstiter
@benjaminbeaver Miami...and maybe Alaska after that.

I'm confused how starting at the team's homes would even begin to work for the "best friends teams" who clearly don't live together. As a matter of fact, the Instagram models live on seperate coasts. Perhaps they did film something at "home" for promotion but a lot is being made of the idea not everyone was spotted in LAX therefore we must have just ditched the starting line.

Could be something like what Israel 4 did.

Half the teams started and ran part of a leg in one place, half in another, eventually converging at the same Pit Stop. Since Phil obviously can't be in 4 places at once, maybe he kicked off the race via video link.

can anyone tell me what are the detours about? Mariachi Madness and Great Bulls of Fire

Mariachi Madness: Find a mariachi player only pretending to play in a giant crowd.

Great Bulls of Fire: Burn traditional Turitos (Mexican firework bulls).

I'd have gone for Great Bulls of Fire.  I love mariachi music but finding a mariachi player only pretending to play in a giant crowd would be harder than burning traditional turitos.  Hopefully the turitos were merely paper-mashie bulls and not actual bulls.

In the lives, there were 4 taxis waiting. Cameron and Darius departed and took one. Assuming these are the only taxis left, Cameron and Darius are in 8th place.
On another note
Assuming teams already checked at this time, the team at the pitstop is on the lower end.
Assuming teams did not check in already, the team at the pitstop is on the higher end.

It's just a speculation, we won't know where they are going next until we spot them on site. But last time after they're going to Mexico (TAR 3), they're heading to Europe next. So I'm kinda speculating that they're gonna skip South America this season, also with the fact that in TAR 27 they'd gone to Brazil and Argentina for 3 legs. :)

Post by: Xarles on November 17, 2015, 08:44:28 AM
I'm sorry to tell you this guys, but after running with the race for more than 24 hours in a row without sleep (not complaining, just best experience ever), discovering almost all locations (except for the Great Bulls of Fire) having had great fun, traveled almost 200 kms without previous notice in public transportation and being as exhausted as I am, when I come back to the forum and find lots of ill-informed comments on security of countries I have to make this statement.

The second most used language on the free internet is Spanish, and an internet-stars-based race couldn't miss (at least) one of the two most populous nations that speak Spanish, Mexico, never minding that it is in an "imaginary violence black list". Violence in Mexico is bad, unacceptable and happens in very remote areas of an enormous territory.

Mexico, at least, is free of terrorism, police doesn't kill our citizens and there are no massive school shootings. Yes, 47 students were killed in a confusing confrontation between police and drug traffickers in the remote town of Iguala last year, bad things happen everywhere, but that shouldn't be a justification to demonize a whole country and I am sure that The Race took that into consideration.

The true dangerous countries black list is the one measured in HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of deaths from terrorism in the largest cities, such as Paris, France; London, UK; Madrid, Spain; New York, USA and so on. But even worse than that is the countries black list where almost thousands of deaths happen at the hands of its own police or in massive school shootings all over.

Facts

Washington Post: On-duty police officers have shot and killed more than 700 people JUST THIS YEAR in the USA https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2015/09/17/on-duty-police-officers-have-shot-and-killed-more-than-700-people-this-year/ (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2015/09/17/on-duty-police-officers-have-shot-and-killed-more-than-700-people-this-year/) and this number doesn't account for school shootings.

Almost all of Europe is under a terrorism watch.

I'm not giving you any more facts because things must be clear enough by now and victims are to be respected and not plainly used as numbers in a discussion.

It is the US and European media (replicated all over the world) that have made a sport at demonizing Mexico for it so called "insecurity". I admire and respect TAR for having come back to Mexico after 25 seasons and am sure they are quite aware of facts and they do not mistake Mexico for Syria or Afghanistan.

I always pray that nothing happens to anyone and The Race when they are in terrorism-targeted countries. Police in Mexico has been famous for its corruption, but things change and they can only change for good after having hit rock bottom. I do not accept corrupt police and I would certainly accept less police forces that the numbers let me call assassins.

Lets make this the end of discrimination for countries and the celebration that the race is aware of it and just enjoy it as it will surprise us with its next destination, a first!

PS: None of the locations in Mexico City (DF) and Teotihuacan (MEX) were cordoned-off, surrounded by security forces or anything like that. I didn't see any security AT ALL. I already mentioned that in another post. And I am very happy that it all happened that way, even in the traditionally pick-pocket plagued Plaza Garibaldi (Mariachi Madness).

As you all saw, the Monument of the Revolution was lit in blue the night of the race and that was just part of how Mexico City felt that night, violence is simply not tolerated:

^^ Definitely agree with you Xarles. Thanks for all your hard work providing us detailed info about Leg 1. I'm absolutely happy that Mexico gets another visit after 25 Seasons. A friend of mine went to Mexico last year and they never had a single problem. I'm curious if we'll get a second leg in Mexico like the one in Season 3 or maybe another Central American country, I remember there was a planned leg in Belize in Season 25 and was swapped with the U.S. Virgin Islands leg.

Actually, I have never known that Mexico is considered as dangerous by some countries. One of my friends just traveled to Mexico last month, too so I think it is a safe country.
I think unsafe countries are countries where there are wars, conflicts, disaster, disease... at the moment.

Thank you Xarles!! If I could sticky that post I would.

Ignorance is one thing, still we can all grow and learn. One of things I love best about the Amazing Race is how we all are constantly exposed to new places, new locations, new cultures, new foods, new traditions...the list is endless.

Right now mindless violence is endemic everywhere. EACH of us needs to educate ourselves, be open to new experiences and traditions.


The World is a small place really. We are all neighbors. Reach out, open your hearts, LOVE.

Person to Person,  we can each make a difference EVERY DAY.

This could just as easily be Mexico, no?

Not that e-a-s-i-l-y! Patterns, materials and colors vary between countries and regions. Those are definitively non-Mexican textiles. Go search for Colombian textiles and see how geometry matches.

There are nine daily flights to Colombia from Mexico City and some more from Cancun, I definitively knew that Colombia was next but I couldn't tell the flight or departure point. All of yesterday's flight went by without any sighting and so did the one from this morning.

The pictures posted on live thread are definitively from MEX T2. At the time they were posted, two flights left for Colombia from T2, both of them from AeroMexico, one to Bogota/El Dorado BOG and one to Medellin MDE and another flight left for Bogota from T1.

If the race has stuck with its rules of using two flights close together, then everything points to Bogota and to these two flights:

Out of T1 MEX-BOG 5:45 p. m. → 11:15 p. m. InterJet 2932 4O/AIJ

Out of T2 MEX-BOG 6:09 p. m. → 11:58 p. m. Aeromexico 0708 AM/AMX

This should put all teams into Bogota by midnight. Both flights are now entering Costa Rican air space.

There are quite a few pictures of bags with the exact colors and patterns all over the place (pinterest, tumblr, etc) from people on vacation and seeing them in the street markets.

The Mercado Bazurto is a famous market that is apparently crazy and you can actually pay to have a guided tour of. Apparently it's a labyrinth and it sells pretty much everything.

Post by: Xarles on November 17, 2015, 09:22:00 PM
Just a tip:

Since El Dorado is an imaginary Colombian town and it is also the name of Bogotá's International Airport, Colombians rarely refer to the airport as BOG or el aeropuerto or Bogota International or the airport, for everyone searching the social networks try just "El Dorado".

Cartagena de Indias, Bolivar, Colombia

As for the Cartagena suspicions. Cartagena de Indias is the most beautiful colonial city in all of the Caribbean coast, maybe a point in its favor. MasterChef Mexico just came back from filming in Cartagena so film promotion must be high. If the final destination is Cartagena, then teams might have been splitted into AeroMexico to Medellín MDE connecting to Cartagena CTG and AeroMexico to Bogota BOG connecting to CTG.

This puts Cartagena as number 2 probable city after Bogotá.

Planes just landed in Bogotá minutes ago, there's plenty of time to wake up your friends and have them follow and document the race. Hope you can. Unfortunately we don't know yet where in Colombia are they going, but Colombia is confirmed aplenty.

Scott & Blair are spotted at the airport. There's a pic of Jessica and Brittany at the pit stop but without Phil in it, probably meant it is pit start. In the Instagram picture posted on the Live Sightings thread there's a guy in light gray shirt with black bandana standing and talking to a camera crew. I'm just not sure who this is but he may be a contestant on TAR. It's hard to tell from the pic but for sure he has black hair.

My Speculation:

Assuming this is an eastward route, and that TAR producers want to avoid Europe (including stopovers) as much as possible, perhaps teams will depart from South America and head to the Arabian Peninsula or Africa. From Sao Paulo, Rio or Buenos Aires, teams can fly direct to Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Doha in the Gulf, and Luanda, Addia Ababa, Casablanca and Johannesburg in Africa.

My speculation on countries that may be visited after Colombia: Guyana, Suriname and Uruguay

Also, I think it is almost inevitable that there will be task involving Fernando Botero's art and sculptures when they are in Colombia. The Botero Museum should be featured.

Seriously, why would they avoid Europe and include the Middle East of all places, if we are talking about safety? This seems kind of like the reversed world. You are speaking as if Europe has turned in some kind of NO GO ZONE, as if we can't even have stop-overs here. Of course the terror threats have raised since last Friday, but that doesn't mean the situation has changed that drastically that Europe should be avoided and I find it laughable that the Middle East would all of a sudden be more safe than Europe...

Besides, I think it's virtually impossible to reach Africa/Middle East from South America, without stop-overs in Europe, unless you take a real big detour.

I was thinking in terms of the hassle saved by avoiding Europe (e.g. being stuck at the airport for a longer period of time or other restrictions). The producers are also answerable to the crew and cast, as well as the loved ones of the crew and cast. Perhaps these people are less comfortable than us about possible visits to Europe (regardless of the threat levels of the specific country/city being visited).

Since Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Doha are major hubs, I guess they are also at the same risk level as other major cities, so maybe they will be avoided too?

I am not sure exactly how safe Luanda, Angola is, but if it is as safe or safer than Bogota, then I would like to see it being visited.

NO where in the world is "safe".

But TAR is known for its high level excellent security, so the racers are in good hands.

Natural disasters, plane crashes, unexpected political turmoil, task accidents have all been TAR risks since season 1.

We all have to trust that production will do all they can to ensure the safety of the crew and cast. Legs have been and can be changed as needed to adjust. So back to spoilers....

A little FYI about Cartagena. Cartagena was the most heavily defended/fortified city in the Spanish Main. It is the place that the Spanish collected all the plunder from the Incas before sending it back to Spain. There are 7 major forts surrounding the city and the city itself was behind a huge wall too.

Today, Cartagena is a modern city and is very similar to Miami Beach. It is a place where a lot of South Americans go in the winter to escape the cold and frolic on the beach.

In the movie, "Romancing the Stone," Cartagena is the city where Michael Douglas fights the bad guy and the cayman for the emerald. In scene, Douglas jumps off the wall of a fort to catch the cayman. The funny thing, the wall he  jumps off of, is about 5-6miles from the fort where he lands...........artistic license I think they call it.

I'm gonna speculate that Colombia will be a TBC leg. One part in Bogota because I think they arrived at night so a couple of Route Markers and then a HOO to departure early in the morning and after a detour or roadblock a fake pitstop to take them to the airport and continue the rest of the day in Cartagena.

Do we have confirmation or an estimate time of arrival to the pitstop in Cartagena?

The pink tanktop girl may be from team Erin and Joslyn
Scott and Blair are safe too

I'm wondering if the teams were seeing are in the front or the back.
Front: Were missing teams in the back
Back: Were missing teams in the front
more probable that teams were seeing is in the back because maybe teams in front already left and were seen but no one knew it was the race?- all spec

No. At first, I thought that Pinky tanktop girl may be from team Erin and Joslyn, too. But in another sighting, we see that girl with a male racer with blue backpack. Only Blue backpack I know is Scott and Blair so I think that father and daughter team.

I'm really confused about the two sightings that we have right now in Cartagena. The first one is a video of the father/daughter team running to Plaza Bolivar. And here someone screams for Phil. Then we have a pic of the dancers (I think) in what we can see that is a pitstop in the walls of Cartagena, really close to Baluarte de Santo Domingo identified with the street view posted before.

Do we have confirmation that Plaza Bolivar is a pitstop? Could it actually be a team on the front of the pack and Phil is there to do his thing were he announces who is in the front and what they are about to do to the camera like the ones he did in S25 and S26? Could this two teams be really that far ahead of the pack that Phil and production are behind schedule and are just doing the stand ups were Phil announces a location or a task?

 :umn:

This two locations are according to google maps separated by a 5 minutes walk. I  just think is really unlikely that we'll have two legs in Cartagena, Colombia with 2 pitstops not only in the same city but in the same general area.

 ???

TLDR: I'm speculating that the first sighting of Phil in Plaza Bolivar is not a pitstop but teams either caught up to Phil or Phil is there to announce the front of the pack.2 Pitstops in the same city sounds crazy to me.

It's more like maroon but it's also pinky. So some people will refer it as pink. And in recent seasons, teams did not wear the same color clothes through the race. Only bandana colors stay the same, I think.
And I did not call the pink team Erin & Joslyn based on their clothes but their face, body, backpack and shoes.

I agree with fossil that Zach & Rachel might be the ones with the 1st boot. They were at the back of the pack when we last saw them. Tyler Oakley was seen here: (covered to save space; from live thread)

Tyler Oakley might be safe?
https://twitter.com/IsgabeMonster/status/666810855305035776
I think that's credible enough. ??? Meanwhile, Burnie & Ashley, Brodie & Kurt, and Marty & Hagan were part of the Top 5 when they reached the 1st cluebox in Leg 1. Unless any of these 3 teams fall drastically behind for some reason, I think Zach & Rachel are the best candidates for the 1st boot in Mexico, if the Mexican leg is an EL.

On the other hand, this link shows that Matt & Dana checked in ahead of Jessica & Brittany. This could mean that the choreographers are 3rd while the Instagram models are 4th. ??? Proof here: (covered to save space; from live thread)

Meanwhile, Burnie & Ashley, Brodie & Kurt,  Marty & Hagan, or even Zach & Rachel (if they survived Leg 1) still need to show up in future legs for us to be able to find out who got booted out in Legs 2 and 3, assuming both legs are elimination legs.

So people safe through Leg 1:
-Dana/Matt
-Sheri/Cole
-Jessica/Brittany
-Erin/Joslyn
-Scott/Blair
-Cameron/Darius

At Risk:
-Tyler/Korey
-Marty/Hagan
-Kurt/Brodie
-Zach/Rachel
-Burnie/Ashley

I hope Kurt/Brodie were the Leg 1 boot and everyone else made it to Leg 2 at least =/
Totally spec( and a guess)
I do think Zach and Rachel are eliminated because  they were 10th to the 1st cluebox and no real competitive edge.
Burnie and Kurt's teams were in the top 5 for the 1st cluebox and displayed more competitive edge.

Totally spec 2
Assuming first 2 legs are elim
Based on the conversation, with  lourdesm36
I'm thinking this happened in leg 2 pitstop
4 Jess and Brit or Erin and Joslyn
5 Jess and Brit or Erin and Joslyn
6 Cole and Sheri
7 Scott and Blair
8 Cameron and Darius
9?
Lourdes saw teams 4-7
As for the 5th team she saw, there were no specifics, will check.
But it could be a team in front of the 4th place team or Cameron and Darius
Since lourdesm36 did not wait for the last team, the last place team would be currently unsighted
There is a possibility that the last place team was in the taxi photo by Biff.

I agree with fossil that Zach & Rachel might be the ones with the 1st boot. They were at the back of the pack when we last saw them. Tyler Oakley was seen here: (covered to save space; from live thread)

Tyler Oakley might be safe?
https://twitter.com/IsgabeMonster/status/666810855305035776
I think that's credible enough. ??? Meanwhile, Burnie & Ashley, Brodie & Kurt, and Marty & Hagan were part of the Top 5 when they reached the 1st cluebox in Leg 1. Unless any of these 3 teams fall drastically behind for some reason, I think Zach & Rachel are the best candidates for the 1st boot in Mexico, if the Mexican leg is an EL.

On the other hand, this link shows that Matt & Dana checked in ahead of Jessica & Brittany. This could mean that the choreographers are 3rd while the Instagram models are 4th. ??? Proof here: (covered to save space; from live thread)

It seems Zach & Rachel survived Leg 1.

- Sheri & Cold, Scott & Blair arrived around 15:30
- The first team arrived around 12:30 (3 hours earlier). She had this info from the dancers in the square.
- She said there were 12 clue (so no elimination in the first two legs?)

12 clues could mean they just made extra to trick the teams? ???

I'm confused, I think the purple team you are referring are Cameron & Darius. It's hard to tell if Erin & Joslyn are the Maroon? Burgundy? Plum? We had a similar problem identifying who's team is this during Season 25, it was between Amy & Maya and Tim & Te Jay because of the same colors Violet, Purple, Maroon...

They were seen giving their post-leg confessionals, but we don't know whether they're safe or not. My guess is that they are since they are close to the Instagram models, who aren't at the back of the pack. (I think? ??? )

What I find curious is that:
- Brit & Jess arrived the clue box around 3:00PM (according to lourdesm36) and they arrived at Pitstop round 4:50PM (accroding to Nomad sighting).
- According to lourdesm36, dancers at the square told her that the first team arrived around 12:30 but Matt and Dana arrived Pitstop first at 4:30Pm.

The thing is that sightings are about 1 day gap from each other so they have to be two different legs in my opinion.

Additionally, the quote referred Matt & Dana as the black team since they wore black. ???

If the 1st team arrived at 12:30 though, I'm leaning on a possible fast forward, next would be a huge lead. ???

I mean: Jess and Brit took only 1h50 to go from lourdesm36's place to Pitstop but Matt & Dana (assuming the first team at 12:30) took 3 hours. So Jess and Brit might excel in a task when most of other teams were struggling.

Do we have any pic of Phil standing in a mat? Or a greeter? Or the usual producers that are always around?

I really think is more likely that we had a really long HOO than having TWO pitstops in the same city. What if a store closes at 18.00 and opens at 9.00 the next morning? What if all the teams are REALLY struggling with a dance/detail oriented tadk?

unfortunately no! i tried , I even asked the producer and the people at the airport but no one would tell me anything
sorry to disappoint
have a good day!
no te producer, but you know, the production crew

avianca was the airline. so they were probably going to Bogotá (capital city of Colombia) to travel international, im guessing
its a pretty small airport.. so there's really just two terminals: departures and arrivals grin emoticon

I don't think so. @DudePerfect's twitter page describes themselves as "5 best buddies just kickin' it" and the pictures show 5 guys, none of whom look like Cole. Their Youtube page does list Brodie Smith under friends on Youtube.

I'm still a little suspicious of this sighting because of the @DudePerfect mention.

Regarding the India instagrams, they're actually in New Delhi.  It's Agrasen Ki Baoli...TARAus2 had a roadblock there involving men with turbans.  The cluebox and flags there seem legit, and pics from there today show many similary-dressed men in turbans (which isn't a rare occurrence in India, granted)...but my thoughts is that it's TAR:Israel (which I think is filming now) getting ready to be filmed for a switchback of sorts.  I inquired of one of the instagrammers, and paradoxinee has asked another.

No, you can still watch it because RoosterTeeth will also be shown in all the eps despite them getting eliminated early. :)

it's like a treasure hunt race and you have to make it to a place call pit stop in the end of a episode. Last team to make it to the pit stop will be eliminated or won't be (if that episode is a non-elimination leg)..

Ok, so:

A: Are we to assume that Burnie and Ashley (roosterteeth) has been eliminated this early?

B: If so, dictated by series , how will they still seen on the show?

C: If not, how can we fans of roosterteeth keep up with them on the show till season 28 premiere?

And here's a idea for the show, give the people a stream or video of what the crew filmed (edited or unedited) a specific team a day events after a episode has aired?

And here's a idea for the show, give the people a stream or video of what the crew filmed (edited or unedited) a specific team a day events after a episode has aired?

A. Burnie and Ashley are not seen doesn't mean that they are eliminated. It also probably because there aren't any witnesses that see them, so they may pop up soon. You'll never know.

B. If they are eliminated, they will be only shown for the legs they run. So, if they are eliminated in episode 2, we won't see them from episode 3 onward until the finish line where all the eliminated teams cheer for the winner.

C. You can't. The idea of making the first leg live is because the nature of the casts I think. The next leg will be just like regular legs, run in full of secret.

That's a great idea in my opinion, especially with the warm reception TAR gets when they live-stream the first leg.

You probably need to watch previous seasons of TAR first before seeing this next February. I recommend Season 17 and Season 25. Once you are hooked, you can start watching the older seasons. <3

I have messaged you as well...

Basically, not seen does not mean not there. Just that we have not spotted them.

We can make assumptions depending on who we DO see...but not this early.

Once a team is eliminated, they go into sequester in a private location. They will be brought back for the finale leg.

But hopefully by then you will be hooked!

B: this would be a good rewrite of a earlier post I sent here. For me, if there eliminated early ( Ep.2) I have no other real reason to watch the rest of it.

C: it's sort of not a secret cuz were particularly seeing and tracking each of the teams.

Well at the end of the day, I'm hoping and praying for the best for both of them, hope that show up on the forum here soon, big fan of them and the roosterteeth brand as a whole.

Thanks for who replied back to a noob as myself, maybe someone will tell them that there is a fan on a forum that is a big fan and wondering where the hell that are in the world. :funny:

This season was the second visit to French speaking region in Switzerland since TAR3 visit while other Switzerland visit was all in German speaking region in Switzerland.

But ugh Switzerland getting a WINTER visit again because since TAR14 Austria/Germany/Switzerland trio are almost guaranteed getting visit in every WINTER seasons (TAR14 Switzerland-Germany-Austria, TAR16 Hamburg, TAR18 Salzburg-Zermatt, TAR20 Bavaria, TAR22 Grindewald-Berlin, TAR24 Switzerland, TAR26 Munich). I hope TAR can go other place for winter leg like Slovenia or Bosnia-Herzegovina.

With only eight teams accounted for, I'm thinking we've got this so far:

Leg 1: Miami/Atlanta/L.A. to Mexico City, Mexico - Burnie & Ashley or Hagan & Marty Eliminated.
Leg 2: Mexico City, Mexico to Cartegna, Colombia - Burnie & Ashley or Hagan & Mary Eliminated.
Leg 3: Cartegna, Colombia - Cameron & Darius Eliminated.
Leg 4: Cartenga, Colombia to Geneva, Switzerland - NEL or TBC.

Nothing set in stone.  Just my speculation.

Could Switzerland and France treat as a single leg? Teams arrived in Geneva in the night of the 21st until the morning of 22nd before leaving to Chamonix that same day with a Pit Stop mat spotted at the town square that afternoon.
Title: Re: TAR 28 Speculation and Discussion of **SPOILERS**
Post by: Zack. on November 23, 2015, 08:50:51 AM
I'd argue that it's one really long leg in fact:

- the pic of the blue team was taken last night en route to Chamonix, so depending on when it was posted they either get into Chamonix at ~9 pm 11/22 or ~9 am 11/23 and if it's a TBC/KOR I have to assume everyone made the train.
- webcam has the red team checking in at 1045 am 11/23 and the Pit Stop dismantled shortly thereafter.

Could they squeeze eight teams doing Detour / RB in like two hours? Perhaps, but I'd wonder how Phil would film standups. I suspect it'll be like the first Zimbabwe leg - one day for flights, one day for Detour/RI in Geneva and train to Chamonix, HoO bunch with early departures and a brief RB before the Pit Stop on day 3. Given how much effort that puts on teams/production I'd suspect Geneva/Chamonix combined is an NEL.
Title: Re: TAR 28 Speculation and Discussion of **SPOILERS**
Post by: Marionete on November 23, 2015, 09:02:10 AM
Zack, I believe you are wrong about some facts.

The pitstop was most likely yesterday around ~16:45, as you can see in the photo here (put in spoiler to save space):
Show content
(http://s17.postimg.org/h216qe21b/2015_11_23_16_54_04_Webcam_Chamonix_catholic_ch.png)

That means teams couldn't have arrived in Chamonix neither at 9 am today nor at 9 pm yesterday. And I don't know where you got those times from ???

Today the mat can be seen at the same square again from 9:46
Show content

Show content
(http://s7.postimg.org/gj9zfow8r/2015_11_23_17_00_51_Webcam_Chamonix_catholic_ch.png)

So far it looks great, and we are only halfway!!!!

Just throwing it out there, but could there be 3 startinglines with Phil skyping the go, on a screen.
They did 2 starts in The Amazing Race HaMerotz LaMillion 4 the Israeli version.  ??? ??? ??? ???

10h45, there seems to be a red team from TAR789
meaning probably Sheri and Cole made it to Chamonix
Perhaps, but judging from the color, could it be Erin & Joslyn as well?
Either way, the visibility isn't good enough to confirm anything.

The MAT is not at PitStarts.... good job everyone! Is that clock Chamonix time? ???
But Peach, there is a mat present yesterday before 5 pm (the webcam goes off just as it appears) and it reappears today from ~9:45 to ~11:00 am. So what is this.. :(

And the clock must be local (Chamonix) time, but what is interesting, is that there's a mix of German and French languages on that webcam screen.

No. We don't know if Sheri and Cole wear Red Winter Coat. And also, imo, that's a M/M team (they both looked tall)

Perfectly OK, thank you!

5 yearly moderate (under 6 mag) quakes are a permanent fixture in town. The city is fully prepared for up to an 8 mag. We already have had a couple of 7.6 mag events without any damage or casualties. Thanks to geography and speed of light, most of the time we even get a 1 min advance alarm everywhere including apps in phones.

Actually, to have had a quake like this (no more than 6 mag) on the race could have added a lot of drama and fun for production. But the quake came in last and was eliminated!

Thanks again for your concern and PMs.

Post by: georgiapeach on November 24, 2015, 07:06:10 PM
Just so we are all on the same page:  (Thanks to Slowhatch for the images!)

This cap Nov 22 is a PITSTOP.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v217/Slowhatch/Chamonix/22%20NOV/7966_2015-11-22_1700_7cafd6227f28ef04.jpg)


This cap from 11-23 is a PITSTART.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v217/Slowhatch/Chamonix/23%20NOV/7966_2015-11-23_1045_a6a6fc0e8dbc9bb8.jpg)


There was another leg at high altitude on the 23rd.  (Leg 5)
 
Assuming they were done by late afternoon, they could have been released anytime this AM or they could have had an extended PitStop today..
 
 
What we need to be thinking about now is where might they go and how would they get there?
 
A leg elsewhere in Europe could involve train travel from Chamonix or nearby.
 
Flying somewhere else possibly could mean going back to Geneva, as that is the closest airport  to catch International flights.
 
So ...some things to watch for on Twitter.  :waves:

if Greece is a transit only from Chamonix, it would take long hours. now, it's possible they already finished the Greece leg just because they're not seen in and just because Tyler got to Athens airport after the pitstop in Greece. Why didn't the commenter asks if there's tasks involved in Greece?

Can someone please find out when that photo of Tyler in Athens was taken? Really think we need to consider if we do have a Greece leg after all

It's my understanding that it would be a really tight fit for Greece between France and Armenia
Title: Re: TAR 28 Speculation and Discussion of **SPOILERS**
Post by: ovalorange on November 27, 2015, 05:59:56 PM
The issue is that we haven't seen any Armenia sightings yet. I'm not totally convinced Armenia has happened yet.

If indeed that is Tyler only leaving Athens now, then that would point to leg 6 being in Greece over Armenia in my opinion. That's why I want to find out if our Athens pic was just a delayed upload or if it really was taken a few hours ago

Well, Peach found out Armenia, but then posted "oops, maybe that didn't happen yet"

Georgia is obviously a definite since Phil was seen there.

Just some spec, but since we don't have a definite starting line, it's possible started in a kind of random city, like, idk, Omaha  :funny: what I can do (tomorrow morning, I'm shot  :funny: ) is cross check American airports that fly to LAX, MIA, ATL, and DFW! That should give us a finite number of airports that the teams could have started from!

With the new info, I might have an idea on the structure now. ???

Leg 1: (Mexico City) Probably NEL to have new viewers to stick around.
Leg 2: (Cartagena) Probably Marty & Hagan booted out.
Leg 3: (Cartagena) Probably Cameron & Darius booted out.
Leg 4: (Geneva-Chamomix) Probably Brodie & Kurt or Erin & Joslyn booted out, or NEL.
Leg 5: (France?) Same spec as Leg 4.
Leg 6: (Yerevan) Same spec as Leg 4.
Leg 7: (Tbilisi)

Note: All spec here; none of these boots are confirmed.

Post by: MrDS on November 28, 2015, 12:34:51 PM
We have most likely 4 non-US legs and we're at Georgia; I expect something SEAsia (Cambodia anyone?); notice we had two double legs already (assuming Leg 5 also took place in and around Chamonix) so that leaves with hopefully one double leg left (which I HOPE is Cambodia or even at a push Australia); I think if Aus were to be visited expect it more likely towards Leg 10/11 unless TPTB want Georgia to Aus and then work north before heading back to the States
Title: Re: TAR 28 Speculation and Discussion of **SPOILERS**
Post by: naejae91 on November 28, 2015, 01:19:13 PM
If they visit Australia this season, I think they use this "2 leg formula" again to decide the locale like the past season (TAR2, TAR4, TAR9, TAR18) with 1st Aus leg take place in capital city of State/Territory (Only Adelaide/Canberra/Hobart/Melbourne haven't get a legit full leg) followed 2nd Aus leg take place in outback/rural area.

Production knew that they were gonna do this tv spot. They knew this would reach social media and youtube at some point. Considering the fame of this racers, is it possible to throw a team or two to trick us?

Just throwing the idea out there. I'm happy with this teams still in it but I feel we should be aware of that.

SIEM REAP is not yet confirmed as us...remember we have been there, done that before.

We did have sightings from there last time, there are tons of tourists there.

please help watch twitter, Instagram, and FB for there AND Dubai...Munich remains a transit possibility as well.

I do believe that there was a leg directly after travel yesterday.

Teams were seen in Tbilisi airport about 1 AM local time Nov 29

If teams did take the Dubai flight they would have arrived as below

Someone needs to pull together flights in the transport thread to see if we can even make Siem Reap  possible flight wise before we get all excited. :tup:

Post by: georgiapeach on November 29, 2015, 08:15:16 AM
Based on a fast look I do not think this is possible. Using Dubai as a transit gave me a KL flight that did not arrive until 940PM 11/29...and that still is not Siem Reap.

I do not think this can be us.

And the pitstop looks it might be somewhere along Dubai Creek, maybe close to Abra Station where they have been before in TAR 15.

from here on out what do we think
leg 9: South East Asia
Leg 10: Australia
Leg 11: Australia

or

Leg 9: Australia
Leg 10: Australia
Leg 11: East Asia


More likely the latter option I guess, because East Asia apparently have more non-stop destination flights back to US compare to Australia unless the final leg was held in West Coast city like Honolulu, San Francisco or Los Angeles.

Interesting that the hashtag includes #madubai

http://mapcarta.com/32417508

Madubai is in Yunnan, China, situated between Ma-tu-pai and Nanxi, and is also nearby to Longdong.

May be nothing... or ? ???

since it has Dubai in it and their in Dubai I'm pretty sure they're not talking about Yunnan, China

That depends.  Are they seen in that airport leaving Georgia or arriving in it?  If leaving, then yes, they survived Georgia.  If arriving, it's possible they got tossed there, eliminating all three women's teams before the F6.

but there are usually 2 legs in the same country if TAR visited Middle-East. TAR 15 Dubai 2 legs, TAR 23 Abu Dhabi also 2 legs, except TAR 17 Oman only one leg

So all the FF teams could've crashed and burned this early. :ascared They were even Top 4 at the live in Mexico. :( :'( I don't think Erin & Joslyn will pop up anytime in the future legs, but if they do, that'd be great! :hoot: After all, what if teams get an F5 penultimate with either a double elimination or a normal elimination with an F4 MPE.

Anyway, if they used up all NEL's this early, that'd be great! :yess: I really like having more teams at a later part of the race.

5 continents 10 countries: I like having them that much! :hearts: I can feel that the route will be better! :yess: Speaking of the route, we have NorthAm, SouthAm, Europe, Asia so far. I doubt Africa will be visited even though it's possible. Antarctica could be… no, I should stop dreaming about that. :funny: Lastly, Australia & Oceania seems like the most possible. :ascared If they visit Oceanian nations like Fiji, Vanuatu, etc., that'd add more new countries for the season and more fun to the route. :hearts: If they visit Australia or NZ only though, that'd still be great, because it's been a while too. :yess:

The cluebox sighting has Atlantis in background.

And the Philippines is not the sightting. They put a board at the place where TAR have been in previous seasons so people consider that as a tourism attraction.

I got to see the Georgian news video. It's awesome! Unbelievable that they allowed them to release that.

One thing I noted and it may be nothing, but towards the end of the video, they are talking to Phil and you hear him say "The race starts in the United States" and then the Georgian narrator cuts in with "Los Angeles" and goes on after that. It's open to interpretation, but it could mean TAR 28 started in Los Angeles and then flew to all of the far flung connecting points on their way to Mexico City.

Bottle, that was a good idea to check about posting the video. I get confused about the various internet sources and the rules myself.

I know this isn't really a spoiler nor am I sure if this was written already anywhere, however, in case it wasn't this season will premiere on February 12, Friday at 8:00-9:00PM.

Mess, just noticed the thread. Sorry.

Anyway, I'm really surprised generally about how they don't seem to make stuff as hidden as usually this edition. Is it possible that they actually want the fans to find out some stuff?

Based on the sceencaps of the Georgia video
we see cluebox and pitstop

Pitstop order:unknown but
Scott and Blair and Tyler and Korey are at the mat around the same time( footrace)
Then I think Kurt and Brodie/Burnie and Ashley/and Matt and Dana/Zach and Rachel around the same time ( selfie pic bottle took)
Cole and Sheri were last I think because lighting was much darker.

Since we see many of the tasks, could this be a speedbump?

Title: Re: TAR 28 Speculation and Discussion of **SPOILERS**
Post by: Platrium on December 01, 2015, 01:51:40 AM
If we're gonna have 5 continents, I think the last 2 legs will be on the last continent, which is most likely Australia & Oceania based on the route so far. So if it said 5 continents (North America, South America, Europe, Asia, ??? ) and 10 countries… ???

Leg 1: US (1) --> Mexico (2)
Leg 2: Mexico --> Colombia (3)
Leg 3: Colombia
Leg 4: Colombia --> Switzerland (4) --> France (5)
Leg 5: France
Leg 6: France --> Armenia (6)
Leg 7: Armenia --> Georgia (7)
Leg 8: Georgia --> UAE (8 )
Leg 9: UAE --> Indonesia (9)

And then…

Scenario A:
Leg 10: Indonesia --> a country in A&O (10)
Leg 11: same country in A&O
Leg 12: back to USA

Scenario B:
Leg 10: Indonesia
Leg 11: Indonesia --> a country in A&O (10)
Leg 12: back to USA

I'm thinking more of scenario A because…
… every time they visit Australia, it's always 2 legs there.
… if they're going for a new country there, they would probably give us 2 legs, similar to the first visit in Bora Bora.

With the recent spoiler Peach posted on the live thread…
Indo is just Leg 8. :stare I'm guessing that Leg 5 France is nothing and the time is just for a long break for the teams and production. (It's a guess; no proof, not confirmed.)
Also, with 6 teams left, I think it's safe to say Dubai was an EL, because 7 teams departed from Georgia the other leg. Also, this most likely means Erin & Joslyn and Jessica & Brittany are never gonna pop out anymore unlike Burnie & Ashley. :(

Same thing we're facing Friday for episode 11 of TAR 27.

This may be a routing model we may see a lot of going forward. Keeps as many teams around as possible with final elimination either at the end of leg 11 or mid leg 12.....and leaves the teams guessing.

Different eruption; different wind pattern aloft. (Will Ripey of CNN was in Bali then and tweeted about it. Right now, he's in Havana.) The linked article only mentioned an ash threat to southern Bali, and not the entire island, sd was the case then.

If it was a speed bump it had to be right at the pit stop because Phil was holding them at the bridge of peace. pit stop was like 100 metres away I mean you had to walk away that bridge. It just can be Detour though

I agree, except the 2 countries part. :)

… So if it said 5 continents (North America, South America, Europe, Asia, ??? ) and 10 countries… ???

Leg 1: USA (1) --> Mexico (2)
Leg 2: Mexico --> Colombia (3)
Leg 3: Colombia
Leg 4: Colombia --> Switzerland (4) --> France (5)
Leg 5: France
Leg 6: France --> Armenia (6)
Leg 7: Armenia --> Georgia (7)
Leg 8: Georgia --> UAE (8 )
Leg 9: UAE --> Indonesia (9)

Then last or last 2 legs in A&O. :) Is Leg 10 confirmed to be Indo as well?

Post by: Platrium on December 02, 2015, 04:30:21 AM
Time to speculate on the pre-determined EL's and NEL's + the boot order. ???

Leg 1: (Mexico City, Mexico) Possibly NEL because I'm pretty sure TAR would want new viewers to stick around for an extra leg.
Leg 2: (Cartagena, Colombia) Most likely Marty & Hagan booted out.
Leg 3: (Cartagena, Colombia) Most likely Darius & Cameron booted out.
Leg 4: (Geneva, Switzerland + Chamomix, France) Most likely Jessica & Brittany, Erin & Joslyn, or nobody booted out.
Leg 5: (France) Ditto Leg 4.
Leg 6: (Yerevan, Armenia) Ditto Leg 4.
Leg 7: (Tbilisi, Georgia) Most likely Scott & Blair booted out.
Leg 8: (Dubai, UAE) Sheri & Cole NEL'd.
Leg 9: (Bali, Indonesia) 6 teams remaining. Spedbump present this leg. Most likely an EL.
Leg 10: (???) Hasn't happened yet, but most likely an EL.
Leg 11: (???) Hasn't happened as well, but it can be an EL or a NEL depending if it will be an F3 or F4 finale.
Leg 12: (USA) Hasn't happened; number of teams starting the leg will depend on the previous leg's situation.

Mostly speculation; only locations and Leg 8 confirmed.

I hope this is the right place to post this. I am in Melbourne and one of the tourist attractions (Melbourne Star is closed tomorrow). There is information about it on their website - http://www.melbournestar.com

I have no idea if it is for The Amazing Race but will go there on my lunch break tomorrow and see if I can find anything out.

I'm in Melbourne too, i hope this is true. i work in Southbank so can't get there, but I'll keep an eye on the board and try to go spotting around here if i can :)

Since leg 10 was confirmed still in Bali, I guess the penultimate leg was likely in urban East Asia cities like Beijing/Shanghai/Taipei/Seoul/Tokyo/Osaka, (not include Hong Kong since they visited not long ago) unless they want to break the tradition and having only 1 Australia leg this season.


EDIT: Oh wait I forgot Phil mention this season will visit 5 continents and 10 countries. So I think Aus (which means possibilities break the TARUS Aus leg tradition), NZ or even South Pacific islands like Fiji and Vanuatu (I think it's not gonna happen anyway since we just have 2 island legs) have possibilities.

Since we still don't have our last continent, here are the possibilities I can think of.

Leg 11 will most likely be in Australia & Oceania. I can think of Australia as the closest possibility, but countries like New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Vanuatu, Samoa are also possible I think. ???

Very off-route and unlikely, but if they do a penultimate African leg, that'd be great!  :colors :hoot: :lol:

Antarctica? ??? I'm not sure how possible this would be, but if I'm not mistaken, it's summer at the South now right?

To conclude, I'm betting on Australia or NZ. :lol:

I'm thinking New Zealand with a possible Queenstown visit. TAR Israel is in Melbourne at the moment so I don't think we'd get two versions visiting the same city at the same time.

We're still missing 1 country/continent according to the Georgian news report however note that TAR27 has 10 countries, 5 continents... Maybe they were referencing that? Or it was a mishear that it was 5 continents and in actual fact it was 4? Hoping for SK for Leg 11 but the way it's looking I honestly would not be surprised if it was Japan or China :(

Yeah, common East Asia penultimate leg are most likely in Beijing/Shanghai in China, Seoul in South Korea, Osaka/Tokyo in Japan (I hope it's not Japan again given the recent shitty Japan leg we get on 23 and 26), or Taipei in Taiwan. Hong Kong/Macau are mostly likely rule out because it just visit last season.

They could rule out Japan as we've done recently in 23 and 26, and as well with Hong Kong/Macau. Seoul was supposed to be for TAR 27 but was backed out with the MERS-COM virus earlier this year and will give a full Seoul leg, not including parts near North Korean border.

If we have 5 continents this season and Phil connects in Hong Kong, there are plenty of flights to Australia/Oceania/Zealand.

I checked flight schedules and the possibilities are: New Zealand (Auckland), Australia (Brisbane, Cairns, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney), Fiji (Nadi) or Koror (Palau).

Phil's flight is scheduled to arrive at 23:35. There is a flight to Sydney at 23:55, but it's no chance for him. There are another flights to Melbourne (departure at 0:05), Sydney (8:40 am) and another flight to Melbourne (at 10:20 am).

Stay positive guys, they won't screw this AWESOME route by a shi__ penultimate leg in Japan/China.  :hearts:

Post by: naejae91 on December 03, 2015, 09:24:56 AM
If next leg was supposed to be the part of Oceania, it's weird to see Phil connect through Hong Kong since DPS have plenty of flight to Australia and from there they can connect to NZ, and Polynesian/Melanesian Islands. Unless the next leg was in Micronesian Islands (which most Asian cities act as main gateway to get through there), I don't see how Phil can connect through Hong Kong.
Title: Re: TAR 28 Speculation and Discussion of **SPOILERS**
Post by: travilana on December 03, 2015, 09:25:27 AM

we got some updates that Phil's flight is at 18.40 PM (GMT+8)

checking flight stats and found this match at the exact flight time for international departure from DPS...


(http://i.imgur.com/zJ3Gs8W.jpg)


finger-crossed it's not a transit hub to other northern part countries (read: Japan, Korea, other big cities in China)  :(

If this info is correct, this flight will be arriving here in a few minutes. Most of the flights that leave from HKIA after midnight are either long-haul westward flights, or East Asian flights that mostly go to Korea or other cities in Japan. I doubt Phil would stay here until 6 AM, since Dec. 4 should be the date of the penultimate leg (Tomorrow will be the 20th day of the race. Correct me if I'm wrong)

Therefore, it's likely that he'll be flying to either Seoul, Busan... *gulp* Tokyo or OsakaAAAAAAAA

.. Or who knows, Phil might probably board CX888 (leaving at 1 AM tonight), bound for Vancouver.  :funny:

If they do 4 continents, then there's a possibilty of having a replacement leg some time this season.

I think Phil has JUST enough time to catch

ET 609 HKG ADD 1245 0624.

Teams, I assume, would be released in the morning of 12/4 and take

CA 1730 1910 DPS PEK
CA 1240 0720 PEK ADD (+1)

Phil gets plenty of time to film standups, and I suspect a 0 hour Pit Stop allows teams to take evening flights from Addis to somewhere in Europe to the US. *shrugs*

IF 5 continents were to be believed and Australia and New Zealand were to be ruled out (although not 100% but seems very weird for Phil to be going via Hong Kong to get there) then we're pretty much looking at one of the Pacific Islands - Fiji, Palau (PLEASE), Tahiti, French Polynesia, Samoa... But then how hard is it realistically to get back to the States from there? Unless you were pretty much going to LA, it's pretty difficult lol, especially if they want Phil to get ahead of the teams for stand-ups etc.

I'd say we're looking more towards Asia again at this point, praying for South Korea and not Japan though; mainland rural China would equally be cool I guess

(Also if it was Africa I would be LOVING this route even more but it seems weird to spend 11 legs going as far out as Indonesia and then turn tail and fly all the way back again in the space of a few days, but hey we got 3 new countries this Race so anything could happen at this point)  blahblah

Yes I know that but the double India leg was Leg 7 (?) so they did half the Race going there and half the Race coming back, not all but 1 leg there and then just 1 Leg on the way back; not entirely saying it's out of the realm of possibility, just seems unlikely given we only have 1 leg left before going back to the US

Performing at the roadblock leg 9:

Korey
Ashley
Brodie
Sheri
Dana
Zach

At risk: Zach & Rachel. They arrived last at the roadblock
  is this the order teams arrived

i arrived at the same time with Sheri & Cole. Tyler/Korey, Burnie/Ashley, and Kurt/Brodie were already there, not sure who arrived first. But Sheri/Cole, Matt/Dana, and Zach/Rachel are in correct order

Almost all of the South Pacific islands (Fiji, Tahiti, Samoa, etc) are best accessed via Australia or New Zealand, so I'm ruling them out.
There's a tiny tiny chance Phil was on his way to the North Pacific islands (Palau, Micronesia, etc), but the times to Guam and Manila for onward connections are all wrong.

Highly unlikely we'll double back to Africa for one final leg - imagine the expenses!

I think we might have to settle for a 4-continent race.

Here's something to think about.

Ignore the internet theme and look at the teams below.

Dana & Matt - Engaged Choreographers
Sheri & Cole - Mother/Son
Jessica & Brittany - Models
Zach & Rachel - Newlyweds
Scott & Blair - Father/Daughter
Cameron & Darius - Brothers
Kurt & Brodie - Professional Frisbee Players
Marty & Hagan - Mother/Daughter
Burnie & Ashley - Dating
Erin & Josslyn - Newscasters
Tyler & Korey - YouTube Hosts

This cast is pretty diverse and isn't all that bad, just think, we could have gotten MUCH MUCH worse.

A lot of these teams CREATE content through their own talent and do not obnoxiously vlog their day-to-day lives. They live their personal life in peace and I would really love to see how they do on TAR.

We haven't even seen a route yet, and we're already complaining lol.

If anything, it's not the teams that are the problem.

It's definitely how editing, route, and tasks will be.

If those three other pointers get it done this season, we could be in for an amazing surprise. (:

So far, route + tasks spoiled seem on point! Now pray for the editing :lol:

Hopefully these teams having a fanbase of sorts forces the editors to show them all equally with no domineering edit like the TAR27 unmentionables! :tup:

Seeing the The amazing race at the airport ! #amazingrace #Bali

Since he posted that Tweet at 7:00 pm Bali time I'm speculating that the Teams are on their way to Vancouver BC.   :cheer:

The timing of the observation is consistent with the Teams were catching Hong Kong Airlines flight 706 which had its actual departure at 6:55 pm (estimated arrival is 11:26 pm).

From Hong Kong they would take Cathay Pacific flight 888 leaving at 1:00 am December 5th and arriving in Vancouver at 8:25 pm December 4th.

One more thing, the 4th place team get "5 times second place in a roll" (that is said by Phil). So this is not match with Sheri & Cole get last place at Leg 8.

So just a formality, pretty much, so as not to seem unfair to the people who aren't recruited and actually apply.

I live in Shenzhen. Can't believe I missed this on the one day I didn't come on the site! Does anyone have the picture of the pit stop or no where it was? Yesterday was a big day in Shenzhen. It was raining non-stop all afternoon. Also there was the Shenzhen International Marathon happening through the city causing some traffic disruptions and a couple of music festivals. I have found a picture of Phil at book city which I'll post later.

No confirmation of the Final Three at all. :tup:

It's a tossup from Final Six onwards via the timeline. Only Sheri & Cole are confirmed in the Final Five, if they're going for a Final Three finale. Don't forget, an F4 is possible yet again due to this season's theme.

Again.. no confirmation on the Final Three. Unless we get sightings proper, it's safe to assume that the only team that made the Final Five was Sheri & Cole, and even then we could have another Final Four finale!

Went to where the pit stop was this morning. No sign of the teams or Phil. Asked some of the security guards and they didn't know anything about it. Got a picture of where the pit stop was based on spectator photos. Likely they repositioned to Hong Kong overnight as the borders between Shenzhen and Hong Kong can be very unpredictable and can get very busy especially at weekends. Also there is potential that the roadblock could've taken place near the pit stop as there is a large park behind with a high peak that holds a statue of the founder of Shenzhen (potentially count the steps?!). No idea about detours but could be similar to the ones featured in the first season of TAR China. Will keep an eye out and see if any news happens. On a social media season though, China is a good option as most of the citizens really won't know who the contestants are and the rain yesterday (although maybe unpredicted) would've helped with not spoiling as most Shenzheners (myself included) stay inside when it rains.

Yep the pitstop is just about book city on the walkway that leads from liana park to civic centre.
If in the windows of the world area then you could have three possibilities - Window of the world, Splendid China or Happy Valley (Although happy valley seems the least likely!)

Come to think of it, the boot order is actually great for me, the most popular among the cast made it far based on the sightings and timeline thread. Sure, the F/F's may have been booted out early but knowing and seeing Vine Stars Sheri & Cole and Zach & Rachel, Rooster Teeth's Burnie & Ashley and Youtubers Scott & Blair and Tyler & Oakley making it far is great and it would be beneficial to TAR in the long run. They all have very huge fan bases that will surely get people hooked including those who have never seen TAR before. It might get them to watch future seasons even after this season ends. With the high ratings and viewership they might get, it will open up more new seasons in the future, hopefully. I'm just hoping this season will deliver. I know it is a twist but I'm sure it will be a better twist rather than the "Dating" Season 26 and will be a step up from Season 27 with its rather mediocre tasks.

Post by: Don Task on December 06, 2015, 08:31:09 PM
Well, since the race is over now, we have time to fill in some blank spaces in the timeline. I am quite sure that teams were starting at their hometowns, there was NO single location starting line as usual.

Since the theme of the next season, I think Phil used video stream to start the race. Teams were starting at their hometowns and used three connection airports to get to Mexico City.

Via Los Angeles - all of these teams started in Los Angeles.
1.) Tyler and Korey
2.) Erin and Joslyn
3.) Zach and Rachel
4.) Scott and Blair
5.) Dana and Matt... they ran under the radar, but I'm sure used LAX

Via Atlanta
6.) Sheri and Cole - I think their first flight was from Dothan, AL
7.) Jessica and Brittany - this is our missing Miami team. They live in Fort Lauderdale and they were forced (?) to fly MIA -> ATL -> MEX because of the geographical advantage they had.

Via Dallas
8.) Burnie and Ashley - they live in Austin
9.) Kurt and Brodie - they live in Dallas
10.) Cameron and Darius - they started in "the Birthplace of Rock 'n Roll" and travelled via Dallas
11.) Marty and Hagan - they live in McKinney, that's close to Dallas. This is where they started their race.

I wonder if producers were planning this since the beginning, or they came up with this idea after they saw team's hometowns.
Title: Re: TAR 28 Speculation and Discussion of **SPOILERS**
Post by: theschnauzers on December 06, 2015, 09:59:02 PM
Tyler has also tweeted that he's back referring to TAR 28 in his tweet. So we can definitely assume they've wrapped up filming.

I'm not as sure that MIA wasn't used as a start point; the flight time from both ATL and MIA would be about the same. IIRC, on the start day, didn't Phil tweet or say in a streaming update that teams were flying from four cities -- LAX, DFW, MIA, and ATL?

Quote
Met with the teams filming The Amazing Race, there were 3 teams, a couple, a mother and a son, and a pair of friends, all racing for a million dollars, the places they visited included Indonesia, Guangzou and are arriving in Los Angeles today. The race starts the minute they leave the plane, so they need to start sprinting once we land. So not to be hindered by racing with their hand baggage they decided to leave it on the plane. I will help them to hand it to the ground team.

Blair was forced to go to ATL and then get on another plane to go to TN to pick up her father. When they made the announcement video it was from Kingsport. Then they had to go back to ATL and back to LA to start the race.

In which leg was 2nd NEL(TBC)? What do you guys think?

Obviously Leg 4 or 5 because Armenia (Leg 6) definitely seemed like an EL because 7 teams were shown on Georgia, which was Leg 7.

Leg 1: NEL
Leg 2: 11th out
Leg 3: 10th out
Leg 4: NEL or 9th out
Leg 5: NEL or 9th out
Leg 6: 8th out

Personally I'm leaning on Leg 4 being an NEL or TBC simply because of the inter-train travel between two countries in the same leg and how TAR19/27 was a TBC on that. (Leg 6 on 27 and Leg 9 on 19).

Just speculating.

I think we may have a leg 1 or 2 NEL this season.

Considering how NEL was handled during TAR27, to the point that the only Speed Bump included was just having both members of a team perform the Roadblock, to the point that it was clear that that's a thing where the production were saving costs, wonder how many of these NEL legs will probably be once more KOR legs.

At least checking the dates on the timeline, considering we're unsure about the date Leg 6 was run, between 5 and 6 seems a likely point for KOR leg.

We now know how Phil delivers the opening message, but wonder how they get the 1st clue envelope, since the starting line is "virtual", but I think we do see them ripping the 1st clue from their homes. Do they simply get it from their camera crew after Phil's message or another way.
Already feeling weird without all teams lined-up and Phil saying go.

Yea they would probably look it up and remember when teams said this is our first clue while live streaming in Mexico? I think it makes sense since Phil is standing at the Monument of Revolution in his email video

Since in the past production has always provided the tickets for the first flight either in the clue envelope, or by instructions in the first clue envelope, I don't see them having the teams scrambling to figure out where in the world is Carmen San Diego Phil Koeghan. They will know that they need to go to a certain airport and go to a certain ticket counter.  IIRC, at least one team was shown getting into a llimo leaving their house with the camera crew.

My guess is that the teams were in LA for the pre-Race seclusion period, had their back packs searched for forbidden items, then flew back home with their camera team for the first leg to await the video message for the start of the Race. I would guess the first clue would be with their backpacks, placed their by the camera crew, or in their transportation to the airport, or handed to them by the camera clue off camera. Take your pick.

The balcony is shared, which isn't necessarily a problem but the meeting room and all other suites next to us were occupied by the production staff for The Amazing Race and they acted like they owned the place. Always moving stuff through the halls, blocking paths and hogging the one elevator. Worst, and most annoying, they had their lunch on the balcony and thought using our tables and chairs was just fine. They even left their trash there for us! And to top it all off, stepped out of the shower into the bedroom to find one of them just flat-out staring into our room. Lovely

Well, the group shot in Mexico do seem to confirm all teams only getting together in the same geographic spot once they're into the 1st leg. Wonder if they took that at a HOO bunch point during the overnight stay (before release time, maybe) or was it after Pit Stop.

With reports of some teams (OK, I remember the report of one, might have been more) that were considered, but ended up not being included, wonder how the "sequester" period worked for this cast.

Superfan or not, they /are/ running a promo of Tyler in Bali. A casual fan can see that, follow the show, and continue following the show with a slight reassurance of "hey, I haven't seen that scene yet so they must be safe!"

They were hoping to retain Ford in the weeks leading up to 27 from what I understand. Sadly that did not happen, I think Ford did some big reorganizing of its overseas dealers, perhaps that was a part of the decision.

I think the good thing about this season is that the teams get enough recognition because there are a lot of tasks within the 1st 2 legs and there are still a lot of teams at the end of the 2nd leg.

Comparing this to TAR18, the first 2 legs feel like 1 leg only since there's 1 roadblock and 1 detour for both legs.
Comparing this to TAR19, we had 2 teams gone after Leg 2.
This season though, both legs are full legs, meaning both legs have a roadblock and a detour each. Then both legs have enough drama to be memorable enough.

I don't know if I'm just stupid or what, but during the China Baidu thingy I remember a rumor saying a team with the most 2nd place finishes was eliminated then.

We only truly have sightings on Dana & Matt and Sheri & Cole for the finale...

The thread also says this:

Quote
Matt's jump was at 9:26 am.
Sheri's jumps were at 9:33, 9:42, and 9:51 am
No jump info on the third Team (it was out of view).

The first helicopter left at 9:36 am.
The second helicopter left at 9:59 am.
The third helicopter left at 10:06 am.

Is it possible Tyler & Korey were eliminated and just on the same flight as the Final Three and then went to the Finish Line?

Sorry if it's 100% confirmed, it's just a thought that popped out in my mind today.

I doubt it. There wasn't a fast forward on the first leg, so I think they would have been just fine for the Mexico City leg. I know they are unpopular, but I don't see a dominant team this season, just a few good and efficient ones, so I think Justin and Diana would have been in the mix at the top. That doesn't mean Justin wouldn't have been obnoxious and irritating.

However, when casting this season of social media "influencers", Justin and Diana's fake race/wedding proposal might have been considered old news.

I don't know if I'm just stupid or what, but during the China Baidu thingy I remember a rumor saying a team with the most 2nd place finishes was eliminated then.

We only truly have sightings on Dana & Matt and Sheri & Cole for the finale...

The thread also says this:

Quote
Matt's jump was at 9:26 am.
Sheri's jumps were at 9:33, 9:42, and 9:51 am
No jump info on the third Team (it was out of view).

The first helicopter left at 9:36 am.
The second helicopter left at 9:59 am.
The third helicopter left at 10:06 am.

Is it possible Tyler & Korey were eliminated and just on the same flight as the Final Three and then went to the Finish Line?

Sorry if it's 100% confirmed, it's just a thought that popped out in my mind today.

Maybe that info is not true 100%. Like the source said that Matt & Dana, Brittany & Jess were the First and Second in the third leg but that source missed the first three teams.

Just a little what-if. :grins:

Since Justin & Diana gained fame through social media with their TAR-themed proposal, what if they were in this season instead? :lol:

HELL TO THE NO.
I was actually thinking of this the other day! :lol: They would be the Marty & Hagan of this season.

I doubt it. There wasn't a fast forward on the first leg, so I think they would have been just fine for the Mexico City leg. I know they are unpopular, but I don't see a dominant team this season, just a few good and efficient ones, so I think Justin and Diana would have been in the mix at the top. That doesn't mean Justin wouldn't have been obnoxious and irritating.

However, when casting this season of social media "influencers", Justin and Diana's fake race/wedding proposal might have been considered old news.

???
Maybe they'll be footracing against Tyler & Korey and Brodie & Kurt more often.

Another thing to consider is Tyler and Korey are from LA, so what if they're boarding the flight to LA because they're going to their home city in order to wait at the Finish Line for the top 3.  Could be a different flight than the other teams, but we'll see what happens.

maybe there was W-turn in leg 10 and Brodie/Kurt got W-turned because they are strong team. We have 5 teams racing In leg 10 and the second W-turn usually appear at top 5


Brodie and Kurt have only one less second place finish than Tyler and Korey, they could be the team with the most second place finishes that is eliminated in China.

If that's the case, then Zach and Rachel and Burnie and Ashley were eliminated in Bali while Brodie and Kurt were eliminated in China.

There doesn't need to be proof of a U-turn in Bali, this is the spec thread :lol: But I agree with Nyoman, at this stage I'd think there's a good possibility Kurt and Brodie are U-turned out.

Post by: Zack. on March 20, 2016, 10:56:13 PM
Super bored, so presenting my standard single contribution this season. I was ~*inspired*~ by ovalorange just now so I took a look at the timeline for the next few legs:

We've got Tyler spotted in ATH at some point on 25 Nov. There's conveniently a nonstop flight from Athens to Yerevan on Wednesdays that would probably be favored over additional connections in Moscow or Kiev, so I'm guessing he and Korey (and probably everyone else) were on

A3 821 GVA ATH 1625 2010
A3 932 ATH EVN 2340 0320 (26th)

Thanks to bottle we know teams arrived via train in Tbilisi on 27 Nov and someone (Slowhatch maybe?) figured out that that train was an overnight

#372 Yerevan to Tbilisi 2130 0750 (27th)

Most curiously is that every place I've found only said that 372 only operates on even days, which suggests that production would definitely want teams to make that train.

The question then becomes 'how can seven teams run a leg AND have a Pit Stop in ~18 hours', given that production tends to have longer than 12 hour Pit Stops usually? If you answered next leg is a KOR then I agree ^_^. This might also explain why Blair has a Pit Stop interview right across from the train station in Tbilisi; much like with Manila in 25 and Huanchaco in 26 there's a giant gap of time between teams checking in and teams leaving on the same form of transportation which would be enough time to film confessionals (or the Pit Stop could be by the train station but I like my idea still lol).

Zack, the start of leg 6 is more likely teams will go back to Geneva and take a taxi to Geneva International Airport. Just what will do a mobile Pit Stop transporting the teams from Chamonix to Geneva for Pit Start somewhere in the city (maybe Broken Chair) to hold their clue and heading to Yerevan.

The list for leg 6 would be:

Mobile Pit Stop from Chamonix to Geneva (just what did in TAR 18 Leg 2 MPS from Broken Hill to Sydney)
Pit Start in Geneva
Taxi or Train to Geneva Airport
Fly to Yerevan, Armenia

At least Wyoming in 8, Moscow in 9 and Beijing 1 in 14 were technically KORs but they did as double-legs which the real 300th leg did in TAR 25 leg 7.

As so, the KOR twist was first debuted in TAR 18, though Sydney, Lijiang, Brussels 1, Christchurch, Lofoten, Zambia/Zimbabwe and Paris existed as KORs.

Because if it's them against Tyler & Korey for last, I don't see Blair outrunning them. Judging by Blair's live tweets it seems she's the slower one, so she probably slowed them down. Of course, that's just my speculation.

If anything Tyler & Korey having to run against Scott & Blair despite being better at basically every task would suggest they were slowed down in some way (say, an extra task?).

Also technically we don't know in what order Brodie & Kurt / Zach & Rachel / Burnie & Ashley are eliminated however:
a.) we know Burnie & Ashley race in leg 10 (pic of Ashley doing leg 10 RB) and
b.) if the "team with five second places in a row" was eliminated in leg 11, then the first of those five would be in leg 7 (thus, whoever finishes 2nd next leg finishes 4th overall)

Since I ignored and ruled out flight connections to Moscow due to lack of Visa problems for some racers, Zack said that any flight connections to Yerevan from Athens. On that date (11/25), the Aegean Airways flight was the only non-stop flight for that day.

Here are other alternate (spec) flights on that date:

Swiss (LX) 2807 GVA-ZRH 1035-1123
Swiss (LX) 1308 ZRH-ATH 1306-1438
Aegean (A3) 932, see above

Lufthansa (LH) 1215 GVA-FRA 1050-1214
Lufthansa (LH) 1282 FRA-ATH 1335-1723
Aegean (A3) 932, see above

Alitalia (AZ) 575 GVA-FCO 1213-1331
Alitalia (AZ) 718 FCO-ATH 1455-1740
Aegean (A3) 932, see above

OK since Burnie & Ashley came 2nd on the Armenia leg, so I think we'll likely know they survived the Dubai and Bali leg, but eliminated on Shenzhen leg.

Burnie and Ashley absolutely looks like they will be 2nd next episode too. They were in the picture with Matt and Dana(Dancers,who will obviously finish high next leg),Brodie and Kurt(EP holders) and Zach and Rachel. That will be top 4. Then 5th will be Sheri and Cole because they were seen checking in after them and before Blair/Scott and Tyler/Korey. And it looks like there was a foot race BECAUSE Tyler/Korey and Blair/Scott are in the same shot while checking in and Blair/Scott will be eliminated.

So every leg so far has had a plaza/square. Possible memory task?

Leg 1: Monumento a la Revolución (sort of a plaza?)
Leg 2: Plaza Bolívar
Leg 3: Plaza de San Diego
Leg 4: Place du Triangle de l'Amitié
Leg 5: Place Balmat
Leg 6: Republic Square
Leg 7: Freedom Square

What about Broken Chair in Geneva and though is actually a beautiful place?

So, the memory task would be:

Monumento a la Revolucion (Mexico City), Plaza Bolívar and Plaza de San Diego (Cartagena), Broken Chair (Geneva), Place Balmat (Chamonix), Republic Square (Yerevan) and Freedom Square (Tbilisi).

I know it was a detour but for Leg1 you could say Plaza Garibaldi also I don't think they'd do a memory challenge on Plazas  :funny: but who knows?

So judging by the timeline & sightings, I'm guessing the bootlist is:
Leg 8: Sheri & Cole NEL'd
Leg 9: Brodie & Kurt eliminated - 6th
Leg 10: Zach & Rachel eliminated - 5th
Leg 11: Burnie & Ashley eliminated - 4th
F3: Tyler & Korey, Sheri & Cole, Dana & Matt
  :spy:

I looked at gamerfan09's edgic and when I read their statements about how Dana and Matt are out of the winner edits contention, it tells me that Dana and Matt are likely to finish the race in 3rd.  I believe there maybe a strong chance that Sheri and Cole pulls an Amy and Maya at the end and win it all while Tyler and Korey will probably be 2nd.  We shall see.

well that spoiler was that I believe that team had last 5 legs in a row in 2nd place so I believe whoever comes 2nd in Armenia that's who gets eliminated and Tyler and Korey definitely won't come 2nd in Georgia because they had footrace to Scott and Blair for last place as seen in sighting

Where did this spoiler of Burnie & Ashley come from again? ???

Since Brodie and Kurt look destroyed at the biking detour, perhaps they use the express pass at the detour.

^This.

I got the TAR27 winner right, but I'm not 100% sure this time because of the Laura and Tyler factor in regards to Tyler/Korey. Dana & Matt though, absolutely not winning via their edit.

If you checked racers' social media, Sheri was the one who always excited and posted many things about the race, like Amy did in season 23  :) :)

Dana put a tweet a while ago saying she was disappointed The Amazing Race edited her a certain way.Last season Joey and Kelsey didn't care how they were edited u-turning Team Texas.I think if her and Matt won she wouldn't care how they were portrayed.Just my theory.

Quote
In the Season 28 finale episode of The Amazing Race, the final three teams will travel from Shenzen, China, to Santa Barbara, California, for the 1 million dollar prize. During the final leg of the Race, they'll face a gut-wrenching leap of faith, jump off a building that's over 150-feet high, and perform the harrowing task of synchronized mountaineering. Phil Keoghan will host the heart-pounding event.

What the hell is synchronised mountaineering? ???

It's mountaineering together following a pattern, I don't know. Just Google it.

I love all final 3 teams. I think Tyler and Korey won, because they are the strongest of the 3 teams, and the dancers who also are strong have a bad edit. I cannot see Sheri and Cole winning, Sheri slows Cole down, I love her, but its true. I cannot see them be faster then the other 2 teams, a lot of challenges are phissical and also the non physical are great for Tyler nad Korey. I think they have a good edit too.

Post by: Marionete on April 16, 2016, 08:15:20 AM
It's a tossup between Sheri & Cole and Tyler & Korey... The latter have had this really positive middle of the road edit throughout, so they could be one of those winners everyone just sees as a cute, positive team. Though they've started to annoy me a bit... :lol: But Sheri & Cole have got a really strong edit too, they are very inspirational (mostly Sheri) and have a cute relationship. Plus Sheri's very vocal on facebook, so maybe that's a sign ;D But she might be just as happy for making F3.

BTW, if Sheri & Cole somehow manage to beat Zachel, Team Rooster and Brodie & Kurt (!) and make it to the F3, they definitely shouldn't be underestimated.. :P Who knows what can happen in the finals, hell, even Josh & Brent won, and right know the edit isn't giving away a clear winner.

Something I noticed is that teams with the biggest/OTT edit don't normally win. Brook & Claire, Gary & Mallory, Jaymes & James ( ??? ), Adam & Bethany, Justin & Diana...

Imo, it all comes down to who's being played a little more lowkey (if that makes sense) or who's a little less OTT

Right now, I think Tyler & Korey are winning. I'd say Sheri & Cole but I remember I thought Mike & Rochelle were gonna win :funny:

I dont think so. But we will see. MY bet: 1. Tyler, Korey .... 2. Dancers .... 3. Cole and Mum ..... It would be just luck when Cole and Mum would win, I love them, but how can they win? A lot of roadblocks were difficult for Sheri. And the Dancers just dont have a winners edit, but there is a possibility -  its similar with Kendra and Freddy, so it is possible that they won.

Perhaps a cryptic clue a la Andy & Tommy? :lol: But I was wondering this too! A simple U-Turn doesn't make sense unless the Detour is really hard orrr

Maybe a Roadblock that Brodie would struggle in--these teams would be smart enough to not help him.

It's exactly that.
Look at the formulation - "The only first that matters", as in other first places on other legs don't matter. It's not "Only first [place] matters", which would mean that 2nd or 3rd place is no accomplishment.

I am going to go out on a limb and say whoever says the finale quote will likely win the season.The finale quote didn't really give away who won last season but it pretty much implied Justin and Diana didn't win.

We have heard other racers say the same quote. It only means that given the TAR setup, only the last first place matters, you can win the race without ever winning a leg, except the last. I think I remember May/Maya saying something similar, and so did last season's winners.

If Burnie and Ashley defeated Tyler and Korey to the pit stop in leg 9, then both teams would have had 3 2nd place finishes each, which would mean whoever came 2nd in leg 10 would go home in leg 11.  Unfortunately, this isn't the case now.   :gaah:

Post by: ianthebalance on April 23, 2016, 03:04:31 PM
The show highlighted the limit of roadblocks this season being at 6, meaning there will be 12 roadblocks total. And since there have been 10 so far and 3 legs left, that means one of the last 3 legs won't have a roadblock. And since we know there is a roadblock in the 2nd Bali leg, that means either the Shenzen or Santa Barbara leg won't have a roadblock.

And iirc one of Kurt or Brodie said there was 2 more to go (assuming leg 10 and leg 11).

Post by: ovalorange on April 24, 2016, 02:12:39 AM
This is the first season since 24 that we've had a Roadblock every leg. If we go back to the RB limit rule rule Phil told us (https://twitter.com/PhilKeoghan/status/468187655059279872) back then, it's 6 Roadblock maximum up until leg 10 and teams can be split the last 3 in leg 11 & 12 amongst themselves in a 2-1 fashion.

If that's the case, it's odd why is everyone talking about Kurt being out of Roadblocks (having done 6) at the end of leg 10. Notice Korey and Zach have also done 6 roadblocks.

So either there the rule has been changed again or production made up some BS rule for 24 because they didn't realise Connor did 8 Roadblocks. Might be worth tweeting Phil himself to see what the current take on the rule is :)
Title: Re: TAR 28 Speculation and Discussion of **SPOILERS**
Post by: serendipity on April 24, 2016, 02:26:16 AM
I guess for this season, the roadblock rule share of 6 each may apply up to Leg 11. Usually the finale planning would be a bit different every season, sometimes with 2 roadblocks or sometimes none.  So maybe production just says they have to do a 6-6 tally for each up till penultimate leg, and they may put whatever number of roadblocks in the finale which the racers can't plan ahead.

How sure are we of the final 3? Is it Dana/Matt, Sheri/Cole, and Tyler/Korey? Or are Tyler/Korey a guess due to sights and stuff. Mainly wondering how Tyler/Korey and Burnie/Ashley are doing and which one of these teams are in the final 3.

F4F would be a Final 4 in the Finale. Somebody's new abbreviation.

That is NOT the case here. If you read the Live sighting spoilers you will clearly see this is a FINAL 3.

We also do know that Leg 11 is an elimination leg. No doubts. Very sad to say...

Not at all assuming anybody has blatantly posted it or would, but judging by a reply in ep 10's live thread that said Sheri & Cole were one of the poster's picks for returning teams, I thought something was seen in the live sightings. It seemed like a heavy implication since Burnie & Ashley were the other pick, since we know they've been eliminated. Though if I'm wrong then I'm perfectly fine with that. (Not that I even care though, there's nobody I dislike)  ???

That could very well be, but most fans of the show are well aware that the last time a winning team was a returnee was in TAR 11, and we haven't seen that since so...
of course I could just be overthinking this since I'm like that by nature.

I'm just the opposite. I like to know ahead of time if a team that I dislike is going to win. I assume it will be Tyler & Oakley because they've gotten so much air time. I like Sherri & Cole but I can't imagine them winning. It's hard enough to understand how they made it into the finals. Dana has been negative enough on Twitter that it makes it hard to believe that her team is going to win.

They also tend to film several takes of the eliminated racers before production informs them it's for real. I don't think you can glean much based on the reactions; it's not like last season where people were freaking out about Kelsey & Joey and politely applauding for the other two.
