Title: TAR Canada 5: Speculation & Discussion of SPOILERS
Post by: georgiapeach on April 16, 2017, 10:57:54 PM
This thread is the WORKZONE of our spoilers.
 
This is where ALL the spoiler discussion of the TARC5 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 is beginning. NO POSTING UNTIL WE HAVE LIVE SIGHTINGS PLEASE.

Due to 2017 being Canada's 150th Anniversary, expect to see a lot of more historical monuments and patriotism tasks. Just pure speculation that there might be even less international legs.

Please let there be international legs! I know that it's the 150th anniversary, but why dont they go to places CONNECTED to Canada? Thoughts?

Refer to spoilers. Look at the timestamps on the tweets. That's not good news for 4 teams.

OKay...in reference to the possible 4 teams not making the last flight from Toronto:

Have reviewed the team departures from the Start site/ source

Following the Task (coming soon in live) teams left in about 3 gps:

First departures: Team 1 then Team 8
Last group: Teams 3, 4, 6, 7   >>so these have possibility of being the 4 (cannot account for other issues like teams getting lost etc..so take it with a grain of salt!)
Rest were middle of the pack

According to WP's Morse Code translation "ouver capilano"...
There is a Capilano Bridge scenic treetop walkway in North Vancouver.
Title: Re: TAR Canada 5: Speculation & Discussion of SPOILERS
Post by: WindsorSue on April 27, 2017, 01:00:06 PM
With cluebox at Gassy Jack statue, task could be at Steamworks Pub, or there is a huge Aboriginal Craft store. Also, they may have taken seabus from North Van if Capilano was first stop.

Sorry i posted it in the wrong threat
I see for sure:

Team 5: Male with big beard
Team 6 : Male with dreads
Team 8 : Girl (same yellow and grey shoes)

Maybe:

Male from team 1 (far, with mustache and blue cap)
Male from team 7 ? (with turquoise shoes between female team 8 and gur team 5)
Male, blond from team 9 (far left)

There is also a pair of green shoes next to male from team #5
And maybe someone behind the girl's hair

So far I have this... I will redo/edit with more info:
I think that is a team member hiding, with green shoes. Gut on right with small backpack looks like sound. Also I don't know abt those 2 guys standing at back...just bystanders???

So from the looks of it, our premiere leg in a nutshell: Morse code task (I imagine this being tough, Morse code ain't easy to read!), huge jump literally fro, coast to coast, Capilano Bridge, highwire walk, dragon boats. Overall that sounds improved over last year's leg 1 IMO

I wonder if starting in a big city could mean early international stint a la Season 3. Van is Canada's air travel gateway to Asia/Australia
Title: Re: TAR Canada 5: Speculation & Discussion of SPOILERS
Post by: dryedmangoez on April 27, 2017, 06:32:03 PM
That Morse code task looks great on paper. But it definitely opens the possibility of teams just giving away the answer to each other. I hope not!

Green shoes is Team 3 - Probably lighting, if you look close pants and leggings underneath is a match
Red Circle- Team 1???

YES!! I think you are right, good job!

I wonder what is the order of the teams, do we know which photo was taken at which time?
Either the 3 teams are last or first
Because we know guy from team #7 is in two pictures, so either team 2 is first to leave or last! (of the seven teams, not counting the 3 others)

And yet again, the race is in my neighbourhood and I am fully unaware. I checked here a few days ago and thought I read it would be May start. Gassy jack is about 4 blocks from us.

Gee, I wonder if we will see any of the pop up injection sites  around gastown and area? A part of Canada I am sure that they will ignore.

11:41 for Teams 1, 3, 5,6,7,8,9
12:36 for Team 2 and 7 pic.


So I'm assuming teams 1,4,10 were the first few teams.
4/10 left first
Team 1 left over (guy in blue hat) and spilled into second group.
Teams 1,3, 5,6,8,9 left second
Team 7 left over and spilled into 3rd group.
Teams 7 and 2 left at that point and are in danger of elimination.

I know this is random but one of the producers just instragrammed a clip of a dog in shoes and a matching jaunty outfit being walked by an Asian girl (unrelated to the show) but the last time I was in Beijing there were dogs in the most elaborate outfits being walked everywhere.  Mainland China and it's Internet restrictions could explain why there been so quiet today.

I going to speculate the next leg to be international.
The last 4 seasons, Leg 3 was international.

S2 Macau
S3 Argentina
S4 Vietnam

Also, with 10 teams, we might be in for 11 legs like last time.

England is a huge possibility, but I expect that in the second international "segment", mainly because there will be fewer teams. They could easily do 2 legs in United Kingdom, or the 2nd leg could be on the continent.

It seems like this season is following last season's filming pattern. There seems to be a main film day and a break in between.

4/26 Startline
4/27 Main Film Day for Leg 1
4/28 Break
4/29 Main Film Day for Leg 2
4/30 Break and Transition to Leg 3
5/1 Main Film Day for Leg 3

If I remember correctly, this was the general format they used for last year. With ten teams, the breaks seem to be longer.

i have a gut feeling this year won't have any international legs  :groan:

why else would they waste pointless money on a logistically flawed route (so far)?

Unless the race could have 50/50 with international legs in a circumnavigational route westward from BC.

Hmm, there is a twin team, #1

And Leafs' video of them getting in the cab in Vancouver has gotta be old, she just didn't post it right away. It's all edited up. No way there's 3 legs in BC lol

Waiting at the Smithers Gate in Van for our plane to come... then a plan lands and like 40 camera people get off....then once they are set up...the rest of the plane races off...the Amazing Race Canada runs through... sorry no vids or pics too busy keeping the Twinjas out of the race !

Hmm, there is a twin team, #1

And Leafs' video of them getting in the cab in Vancouver has gotta be old, she just didn't post it right away. It's all edited up. No way there's 3 legs in BC lol

I think the reference to "twinjas" was to the poster's own children.
There was an earlier flight that arrived. Maybe that was it. Even a couple of teams with their crew can seem like many to an onlooker.
Agreed there is no way for another leg here, but I am thinking they may have to overnight here and check-in.

They didn't come in all at once. There was a previous Twitter at approx 2:18 PT. Teams unknown. Then 3 sightings that occurred 4:41 PT which seem to involve 3 teams only.

I'm happy with a mainland China leg (mostly because it means we have some international legs haha).
I'm guessing they are going to do 2 legs in Asia (99% sure just in China) but maybe another country?

As for the rest of the leg, we always have one leg in Ontario, one in Quebec and one int he Atlantic.
And for the finale leg, it's always been in big cities, I'm going to guess a finale in Winnipeg, because it's a big city and we haven't been to Manitoba since season 2!

Post by: claude_24hrs on May 04, 2017, 09:04:09 AM
I do really think half of the race is possibly International that could be racing across Asia and Europe, it would be back to Canada later in the race (New Brunswick, Ontario/Quebec and Manitoba) within circumnavigation route. Europe hasn't visited since season 2.

Post by: Travejunkie on May 04, 2017, 09:59:18 AM
Beijing opens up all of Asia for them, but assuming they're staying within China and the next leg is tomorrow they could be on one of these.  China has so many airlines that between major cities, flights are approx. once an hour, there are tons daily.  My money is on Xian, due to the Terra Cotta Warriors, but there are amazing landmarks in all of these destinations that would make great TV, and flying back to Canada from all of them is not hard, the airlines work with Air Canada.

Xian -
China Southern 3173 PEKXIY 0655 0905                           
China Airlines 1231 PEKXIY 0735 0945
China Eastern 2102 PEKXIY 0755 1000     

Shanghai -
China Eastern 5183 PEKPVG 0740 0950                         
China Airlines 1835 PEKPVG 0800 1015                           
China Eastern 271 PEKPVG 1305 1520

Guilin -     
Grand China 7215 PEKKWL 0745 1100                           
China Southern 3282 PEKKWL 1220 1530                           
China Airlines 1471 PEKKWL 1235 1545

I expect another leg in China. I think likely possibilties are Xi'an and Guilin. Shanghai could be seen but it's another large city but rural legs have been frequently seen. Beijing could host 2 legs. I hope for Japan.

Not from pictures. Seven Teams confirmation from Peach, is sure from whoever we have on the ground who provided the pictures and confirmed the number of teams still racing.

Not always that easy to grab pictures of everyone.



At least they have gone to Mainland China this time and not bloody Macau...

Maybe. Beijing is considered a Sister City to Ottawa.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_twin_towns_and_sister_cities_in_China (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_twin_towns_and_sister_cities_in_China)

On a whim, I looked up Tock's restaurant in Shanghai. It's a Montreal Deli. And they serve poutine. That just cannot be a coincidence.
Edit: It was begun by alumni from Western University, and I do believe Bickerton also went there.

That's the most probable, but Montreal smoked meats, pastrami & corned beef are also well known so I wouldn't be surprised if it's a menu task. Maybe even in Chinese.

Update: All 3 Air Canada (Canada-bound) flights today (Sunday May 7) are now en route, and all three are delayed:
AC26 to Vancouver new ETA 11:50 AM PT (2:50 PM ET)
AC18 to Montreal new ETA 7:02 PM ET
AC28 to Toronto new ETA 8:04 PM ET


Based on the flights WindsorSue put in the transportation thread, I'm thinking they are going to Toronto and then make their way to their next destination. I doubt its Montreal.

No it won't be Montreal, but it could be a possile leg just outside of Montreal - there are several important cities, or Mtl could be a connection. Same is true of Toronto.

I never meant to rule out any options west of Ontario. I was commenting Toronto vs Montreal. We should know when that YVR flight lands, as IMO that would seem the more logical and quicker connection for any leg west of Ontario. Let's hope we get a sighting!

Steph and Kristin are currently in Halifax.  But they had to go to Ottawa for Canada's 150th, just like they're prob going to Montreal for Quebec's 375th.  But Byward market is an awesome place, one of the best in Ottawa, so it makes sense.

Just my speculation - but I think they may have had a leg planned for Montreal or the Ottawa area and they have had to delay because of the flooding there.
Quote
The Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat issued the following statement in response to flooding in the National Capital Region:
Recent flooding in the region has resulted in local evacuations, as well as road closures.  As a result, and to allow emergency services to help those in need, the Government of Canada is advising its employees not to travel to their offices on Monday, May 8, if:
they normally travel to their offices via the interprovincial bridges; or,
they work in federal buildings in Gatineau, as these buildings will be closed.
With the flood situation continuing to worsen in many regions of Ontario and Quebec, the top priority is the safety and security of employees and those in the affected communities.

It's definitely a possibility. It's been bad this past week. The Saint John River through New Brunswick is overflowing, too.

Also, VE Day is the anniversary of our liberation of the Netherlands. One possible place that jumps to mind is a statue called The Man With Two Hats. It was given to Canada as thanks, there's one in the Netherlands and an identical one in Ottawa.

It's probably prep. Every time we see Jon, we see teams the next day.

Last season is a good example. Same thing for Season 3 IRC.

OMG I WAS IN OTTAWA TODAY  :groan:

I was at the commemoration ceremony at the war museum, Justin Trudeau was there but only for 15 minutes, from 3h35 to 3h50.
Did not see anything. If I learn that they were there I will be sooo mad!

Maybe they'll get a familiar face to appear - Jody Mitic :)

He lives in Ottawa (he's a city councillor now). And of course, a war veteran. It'd be appropriate.

Combed through FB comments for the UTurn post and this could indicate filming tomorrow.

Could The Next international destination be The Netherlands
Title: Re: TAR Canada 5: Speculation & Discussion of SPOILERS
Post by: WindsorSue on May 09, 2017, 07:37:08 AM
Yes it is certainly possible. Here's why...
VE Day is the celebration of the day Germany signed it's surrender. May 5th is the day Germany capituated in the Netherlands. (WWII) The Netherlands sends tulips every year to Ottawa in remembrance. Ottawa has an annual Tulip festival where the majority of the display is at Dow's Lake, (Commissioners Park) which is also the sight of the Man with Two Hats statue that Maanca described. I wouldn't be surprised if Dow's Lake is the Pitstop!
But...two things. First, this leg (as Fossil pointed out) will probably be filmed today, not yesterday. Second, this would only make sense if they go to the Netherlands on the next leg, IMO. That isn't really their pattern in previous seasons, but their route this year has been different.

@RiverWardRiley is a Chevrolet dealership renting Mooney's Bay to park vehicles? #ottbike

(There's a video. Looks like waaay more cars than necessary, but prob misdirection, or a task?!)

All of the vehicles parked on the left are either red or white - just like a certain flag I know.
How about - arrange the vehicles into the shape of a flag?

You can tell team 9 is waiting in queue to greet the Mayor. They run in just as team 10 run out. You basically just see their feet.

Christine_Brown‏ @Christine_Brown
At CanadianMuseum of History. Amazing Race Canada is filming here right now! Racers are coming in right now.
7:39 PM - 9 May 2017 from Gatineau, Québec

This museum is in Gatineau, Quebec and has a gorgeous view of Parliament Hill from the other side of the Ottawa River, as well as a park and walkway. I know the walkway was totally flooded out. All employees EXCEPT support staff were told to stay home yesterday, due to flooding. Yet the museum continued with the reception that was held there.

The bottom line is the Pitstop could have been there OR back on Parliament Hill.

So they were in Gatineau for sure? I suppose the flood would give them a convenient reason to say it's closed for the day, lol

Maybe from here, they'll go farther in and next leg might be somewhere along that western edge of Quebec (Val d'Or, etc). Every Quebec leg so far has been within the St. Lawrence watershed. Which is where like 90% of the province's population lives.

From the Viking person:

The Amazing Race (Canada) had an episode filmed right in our town of Woody Point across our road. Not allowed telling you who did what, how or where!!!! :) It was a Viking scene and since L'Anse aux Meadows had too much snow, they filmed here in Gros Morne Nat Park.

Comments: Very exciting,watched some of it from the upstairs bedroom!, :funny:

I'm trying to map out this season and it looks like we could have another final 4 non-elim (last one was season 1).

Assuming its 11 legs, we need to eliminate 7 teams in 10 legs, meaning we have 3 non-elims (or KOR legs).

1st 3 legs are elim since 7 teams made it to China. So, between legs 4-10 are 3 non-elims (or KOR legs).

Here's the possibilities (bold is what I think is the most probable based on our current info):
4: 7 team non-elim or 7 team to 6 elim
5: 7 team to 6 elim or 6 team non-elim
6: 6 team non- elim or 6 team to 5 elim (U-turn legs have been eliminations or KOR legs)
7: 6 team to 5 team or 5 team non-elim
8: 5 team non-elim or 5 team to 4 elim
9: 5 team to 4 elim or 4 non-elim
10: 4  team elimination
11: Final 3

Doubt they would do 2 final 5 non-elims in a row.

There's a fleet of identical cars incorrectly parked at #YQR and a guy guarding them. Can you say #amazingracecanada?

YQR is Regina.... 5 cars?

I see 10 cars - Chevrolet Cruzes I believe. Strange - just one Cruze hatchback though. (number 8 - white) The rest are sedans.

Post by: stunami on May 17, 2017, 02:54:58 PM
Maybe 1 set for teams, and one for extra camera?
If there was 6 teams in Ottawa, and then we had that leg + 2 other, it's safe to say we are final 4 or final 5.

I know Peach said there was 7 teams in China, but we never figured out who was that last 7th team who was eliminated in China right?

Also, could this picture, from Mark Lysakowski's IG be from the park behind Saskatchewan's Royal museum?https://www.instagram.com/p/BUKoQnMl7FF/?taken-by=mlysakow

Assuming this is 9 and there's 2 legs left, I'd guess a northern final 4 leg and a Winnipeg finale (that would fill in every province except the 3 Maritimes since a Route Marker did send them just over Quebec's border). Or vice-versa.

Of course there could be one lass cross-country jump, as they've done plenty on this route, for a Maritime leg.

Yeah, a leg in the north could be possible... Or maybe a full leg in Quebec, they usually always have a full leg so we will see...

As for the finale, I say very good chance we have a Winnipeg finale, with an outside chance of Edmonton, or maybe even Fredericton (link with Canada 150)

Post by: Maanca on May 18, 2017, 04:04:55 PM
As for Saskatchewan, my best guess as to where they could have completely avoided detection is the Big Muddy  Badlands/Castle Butte rock formation 2 hours south of Moose Jaw (most of the bottom edge of SK is a desert landscape. It'd look great on TV).

Or possibly the Qu'appelle Valley NE of Regina.

Moose Jaw has 50,000 people. Chances are they'd have been seen.

Wish I could have helped more on this one, having almost moved here in 2005. I searched everything I know.

Saw this on Reddit:

So I saw the amazing race filming in Panama on two separate days. When I first saw them I asked what they were filming for and I was told "a Canadian TV show called "endurance"" but later I saw them standing on TAR mat and opening the iconic yellow cards. I have pictures and videos but not sure if I should/ am allowed to post them since they're of the contestants and stuff.

Now there's this comment: They were also spotted filming near where I work. The clue box was set up. It being midtown Toronto no one gave a ****. It was also a U-turn box so now we know for sure in Toronto leg of TAR Canada next season there's a u-turn.


If true, we missed a leg somewhere and we have 1 leg left.

Could be possible the race is finished, even. They disappeared into southern Saskatchewan a few days ago and rhat was it. A gap between domestic legs wouldn't be this long.

Last year's finale was run the day after our Victoria Day holiday (which is tomorrow), and they started earlier this year.

If they managed a completely undetected final leg, bravo TAR Canada

They have been missing for quite a while (I'm ready to put up missing people posters for leads :funny:)

If the Reddit sighting of Toronto is true, we missed a U-turn leg somewhere. I think most would agree Toronto is hard to escape without sightings. In this scenario, finale would have been Friday? and race is over.

If Toronto is false, today? would be the final leg. (Leg 9 - SK, Leg 10 Friday and ?, Leg 11 Today)

Note: They have roughly one day break after filming of a leg unless its KOR.

We got yelled at right away by someone in disguise to get away. Then 2 mins later a team comes running in. I don't watch the show anymore but it was still pretty cool!

Thought they were seen in Ottawa, but it's hard to tell from the photos.

So there was a second stunt-y heights Roadblock in QC (that's a huge waterfall they were dangling over yesterday). It probably was the finale, then.

Given the awfully large time gap after SK, we must have lost them in some remote corner of the country for the penultimate leg, Sorry to say I don't put enough faith in TARC to have gone intl a 3rd time :P

- As regard to the pétanque tweet, the person said in french: that they were spotted WHERE people play pétanque (so it's not 100% sure they had a pétanque task, maybe they just had a cluebox next to them).

We are missing a leg between Regina and Quebec... Most probably a leg in a rural area, either one of the territories, or maybe northern Manitoba like some suggested  (Churchill?)

If Churchill, it's small and remote, but very tourist-oriented. One thing I know they offer there is "safaris" to see the arctic wildlife (polar bears, etc). That'd come to mind for a great task.

So our final speculated route:

Leg 1: St.John's, Newfoundland and Labrador (start line) to Vancouver, British Columbia
Leg 2: Fort McMurray, Alberta
Leg 3: Castelgar/Nelson, British Columbia
Leg 4: Beijing, China
Leg 5: Shanghai, China
Leg 6: Ottawa, Ontario/Gatineau, Quebec
Leg 7: Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador
Leg 8: Panama City, Panama
Leg 9: Regina, Saskatchewan
Leg 10: Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario
Leg 11: Quebec City, Quebec.

What a convoluted route!

But TARC3 had 12 legs.. cannot rule out that we have missed another leg right? Seems we had quite a bit of l o n g time gaps... ???

The route looks a little better when mapped out if they had just kept the opening Leg in Vancouver instead of that unnecessary cross country flight. Or if they really wanted St. John's as the Starting Line, have a full Leg there and then continue on from there.

I think they wanted them to take long flights on each leg. I guess this makes the race a bit more exciting, at least for the producers' point of view. For me, I just feel they're throwing money out of the window. Let's just hope they've put lots of effort on tasks (ugh curling :groan:)


But TARC3 had 12 legs.. cannot rule out that we have missed another leg right?

True, but TARC3 had 12 teams. Now, there's only 10, so I guess it will be them same number of legs as TARC4

It wasn't just regular curling in Sault-Ste. Marie...
It was  CrokiCurl! (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manitoba/crokicurl-winnipeg-kick-off-1.3956876)
A combination of Crokinole - an iconic Canadian game  (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crokinole) and Curling (another iconic Canadian game).

You can tell by the posts on the ice. I had never seen it played outside of Manitoba though.

The Missing leg is in Sault-Ste.Marie!!

Filming was there this Friday
I have pictures but I'm waiting for permission to post here.
Curling task, team 1 and 6 spotted

And 2) to NEVER reveal the final 3 Finish order. From experience, we know that this ruins the fun of the show ending...and the SHOW is more important than the SPOILERS...bottom line.

Just curious if Thailand was a difficult country to get sightings in the US visits? Them getting in and out completely undetected is pretty awesome.

Also, despite the U-Turn, my hunch is the Ottawa Ontario/Gatineau Quebec leg when they get back might be another NEL. Being the capital region, the locations seen, CTV Twitter actually inviting people out, that leg is likely going to be the bread-and-butter of the Canada 150 theme (the leg that makes them talk about being patriotic)

Not a kind of leg I'd expect an elimination on.

After 4 episodes, seeing a pattern that could be the memory challenge this year: Animals. Each episode has had one somewhere all the racers would have seen

Leg 1-The falcon at the bridge
Leg 2-Phoenix Heli-Flights (mythical, but still a creature). Or buffalo, as in the Wood Buffalo region
Leg 3-Oso Negro coffee. Translates to "black bear", one is in their logo.
Leg 4-Greeter's birdcage with budgies

Leg 5, cats, as mjharmstone found, this leg will visit the Caturday Cafe from TAR26

And sightings showed the U-Turn coming up in Leg 6 is in front of a place called "Beaver Tails"

The history of Thai spottings in American TAR is indeed scanty:

Season 26 - just one video of teams at Patong Beach during the evening, but no photographs of them racing in daytime Bangkok (just at Suvarnabhumi Airport after the fact)

Season 19 - zero photographs whatsoever, just random Tweets in/around the Phuket area (see footnote)

Season 14 - photographs of the Phaya Thai Palace PitStop, but none of the teams racing through BKK itself

FOOTNOTE: Curiously, Australia versus New Zealand did have images of its teams doing tasks in Thailand (Leg 3 of 10) uploaded to Instagram months before airing.

Agreed on the upcoming leg in the capital being a Final Six non-elimination, the precedents being the very first Nova Scotia episode as well as the one in the third season with the Magdalene Isles.

This raises a possibility for the F4 in Sault Ste. Marie leg that went nearly undetected :)

Maybe they flew into Thunder Bay and took a bus the 8 hour stretch around the head of Lake Superior. Such a bus service exists. Not exactly a highly populated highway, hence no sightings. Sault Airport does not fly from Regina.

2 hours north of Sault along that highway is a town called Wawa. The most well-known landmark being a giant statue of a Canada goose. One of our national symbols.

No surprises for the eliminations so far. I think Andrea and Ebonie will be eliminated in 6th. Their placements are all up and down (down-up-down-down-up); next leg has good chance at being down.

5th might be the Richards. Edit is weak for them and they are still "just in it".

4th might be the surprise elimination of the Cavaleris.

That could be right. And so it seems next leg will be a W-Turn with a F6 EL at the end of the said leg.

Episode 6: Ottawa/Gatineau, Andrea and Ebonie potentially out
Episode 7: Corner Brook, F5 NEL

What we know:

Karen and Bert spotted in Newfoundland
Adam and Andrea spotted in Panama
Our final 3 teams...

Is Ottawa is an EL, then the girls a done
But if its an NEL, then either the girls or K/B are eliminated in NFL
Then the surviving team + A/A in either Panama/Regina

So basically the girls could be the next team eliminated OR go as far as final 4!

CAN1's sequence was the same as 14 (7-5-4).
CAN2's was 20 (8-6-5).
CAN3's was without equivalent (8-5).
CAN4's was 26 (9-6-5).

Rule out Ottawa as the F6 elimination given the precedents of CAN1 Episode 8 as well as CAN3 Episode 5.
Rule out Panama as the F5 NEL given last year's precedent in a culturally similar Latin American nation as well as 29 being too recent.

Therefore,the CAN5 sequence will be a replica of 21 (7-6-4).

Adam & Andrea, at least, are final 5 for sure. We had them in Panama.

My impression was that all sightings between Central America and QC (City) non-inclusive were of finalists before the fact, e.g. Korey/Ivana in the Prairies and then Sam/Paul in Northern ON (i.e. the penultimate leg).

Therefore, the crux of the matter is determining what happened right after Asia, and one would think that the budget could handle six teams with camera/production crew in Newfieland as opposed to the same number in a non-domestic locale.

Looking forward to the previews of those last 2 legs before the final because it's quite a mystery where the hell they vanished to for that several legs (and within Canada, makes it more impressive)

Maybe they passed through it :p

I pulled out the road maps I have earlier to see where the rail routes go, that new clip in the intro hints train travel yet to come. Could explain no airport sighting after Regina.

It's possible through passenger rail to go from Saskatchewan, through Manitoba, and across northern Ontario, which then turns south to Sault.

In short, a rail travel-focused F4 KOR leg spanning 3 provinces. That'd be an alright leadup to the final elimination

The Algoma RR is a local sightseeing railway in the Sioux Ste Marie area. It runs once per day. There are two shots of trains in the intro. The first at the beginning is clearly the Algoma train. You can see the front of the engine. It's how Maanca and I ID'd it. The second is near the end and seems too long to be the Algoma train ??? But both appear to be in the same area of Canada.

The maroon train is definitely the Agawa Canyon Tour Train (I grew up I Sault Ste Marie).

It's a day long excursion that starts and ends in Sault Ste Marie, I don't think it would make sense for them to actually go on it since it will kill basically a whole day of time but they might do something at the rail yard.

There is also no via rail in and out of Sault Ste Marie, the only train service goes to Hurst (which is even more remote).

This is pretty much the only time being a Sault Ste Marie expert would ever be useful.

This article from local Sault Ste Marie news source also points towards a task at Bellevue Park.

Watching the end credits of TARCAN it says the show is copyrighted by Endurance Entertainment 5, so sounds like the same production to me. (Also SSM is the size of a postage stamp the odds of two different television productions going on is slim)

We believe this was the pitstop.

...Algoma rather than Via Rail, eh?

Okay, cool.

Just wondering about the specifics behind that hypothetical "Regina to the Soo via Manitoba" scenario, assuming no flight between SK and Northern ON.

For the train,
Would it be possible for them to do:

To take the trans-canadian from Saskatoon, heading to Toronto
but to stop at Oba railway Station, where they can transfer to the Algoma Central railway?

That would take them 1 day and 6 hours (according to via rail website)

There were two days between sightings in Regina & Sault Ste Marie, so for this to happen it would need to be a KOR, right?

I guess that they did just fly directly from YQR to YAM, completely bypassing YWG.

I don't think the train from SSM to Hurst is running any more. So they would be flying into the city via Person.

Actually, there are no direct flights from YQR to YAM, only connecting to YYZ.

Re: Finale.
The Observatoire de la Capitale is the highest vantage point in Quebec City and boasts a 360 degree of the city. What if the team member that rappels up there must look for the Finish Line?
There is an interactive webcam on their site: http://www.observatoire-capitale.com/visite-virtuelle/webcameras.html (http://www.observatoire-capitale.com/visite-virtuelle/webcameras.html)

As in, Pearson Airport?

Yes, they would fly from Regina to Toronto then Toronto to SSM, the only Air Canada flight into SSM is from Toronto

Gotcha.

K/B's fate is almost certainly going to be sealed by the F-O.
