Title: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers

Quote
I was a semi finalist for TAR 10. I didn't quite make the cut for the LA Finals. However, I knew that the race was set to begin this past week. My kids kept telling me "Hey Dad, you were going to be leaving on The Amazing Race this week". I was wondering where would I start...where was my first city going to be...what my first detour and roadblocks would be.

Well...I have the first answer...My other team member is a pilot. He was flying through the Seattle airport earlier this week, and saw all of the teams at the Seattle Tacoma airport. He didn't see where they were going, and didn't recognize any of the teams from the Green Room at the Chicago semi's.

Pedaler brings us this spoiler  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8610.0)
didn't quite make it t:

Seattle airport earlier this week, and saw all of the teams at the Seattle Tacoma airport.
My pilot buddy didn't see exactly where the teams were going, but there were apparently only two International flights from gates the teams were congregating around: Hawaii and Tokyo. 
"My pilot buddy who saw the teams at SeaTac said he was in the South Satellite.
 He said there was an Aeroflot flight out of there around the same time as the NWA Int'l flights on either May 30 or 31."

TAR10 spotted at SEATAC May 27 - headed to Beijing
I rode on United's flight between Seattle and Tokyo with many of TAR10 teams Saturday May 27. The airport boarding area was 'buzzing' with couples dressed alike who were followed by camera crews. Each couple wore matching numbered tags on their backpacks and were dressed alike. The pair next to me (Team #1) pointed out the window at another plane, not yet departing, and kept asking the flight crew about our on-time departure and arrival status. They also inquired about Chinese currency exchange rates for their next destination in Beijing.
I recognize the two blonds in Blogger K The Kuwaiti's pictures but no sight of Team #1.

I decided to actually take my lunch for once and spent fifteen minutes talking to an exceedingly helpful woman at the Seattle Film & Music office -- she'd even been at the starting line!

The starting line is: Kite Hill at Gas Works Park in Seattle! (So much for my guess of Snoqualmie Falls.) Here's an aerial map of the park (http://www.seattle.gov/parks/_images/maps/gasworks.jpg). Kite Hill is the roughly circular thing in the upper left-hand corner of the map.
What she said: Phil and the teams were at the top of Kite Hill; the luggage was roughly where the "trail" in "Burke Gilman Trail" is located on the map, and the cars (black Mercedes) were lined up in the parking lot close to where the red blip on the trail is. There were 13 cars and 12 (!) teams. They set it up with a fireboat shooting jets of water out on Lake Union (off to the left side of the linked map), and floatplanes taking off and landing.
There were about 75 crew people and 40 crew vehicles.
It was quite rainy, though on and off, while they were filming. She expected somebody to slip while running down Kite Hill to get to their luggage, and in fact some of the crew did, but no contestants did.
After leaving the park, the teams had to find their own way to Sea-Tac, though they blocked off a number of streets and funneled them up Northlake Way to Stone Way, and they might have asked at businesses how to get to the airport.

Diversity is the word as 'Amazing Race 10' starts in Seattle (http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/tv/277773_amazingrace17.html)
It was a rainy May morning when 12 teams of people charged down the hill in Seattle's Gas Works Park -- the official start of the 10th edition of CBS' reality show "The Amazing Race."

Charlie's Blog (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8610.msg125358#msg125358) Lynn and Karlyn explained that they had arrived in UB that morning on a train from the Chinese border. They had apparently driven from Beijing to the China-Mongolia border.
 TVGuide on line description:
Twelve teams of two begin their global trek in Seattle and then jet off to Bejiing.where they must find a clue in the Forbidden City .Later teams climb the Great Wall of China.
CBS Press~  

   The race begins in Seattle, Wash. when Teams begin jockeying for available flights to the first destination, Beijing, China.  Once there, Teams are faced with their first Roadblock, which requires them to feast on a Chinese delicacy.  As the racers continue to navigate their way through the busy streets of Beijing, they are faced with the game's first twist.  Meanwhile, the racer's physical prowess is put to the test when they must climb a portion of the Great Wall of China.

Amazing Race
By Charlie
Wednesday, May 31 was cold and rainy in UB. Rachel and I went to the gym in the late morning and then enjoyed lunch at our favorite ex-pat watering hole.
As the lattes arrived, we saw a horde of alpha-humans charging through the courtyard of the monastery/museum across the street. Each team of two was followed by a cameraman and sound guy. The teams ran up to a temple, grabbed an envelope, tore it open, ran to a waiting jeep, loaded up and drove away.

Two young African-American women (Karlyn and Lynn from Alabama (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8610.msg125091#msg125091) )  frantically interrogated the Mongolian bystanders. “Do you speak English? Do you speak English?”

“We need to get to Terelj. Where is it?”
“Can you show us?”
So we all piled in the Russian jeep and hit the road.
The instructions continued, saying that they should park their jeep in the village of Terelj, where they would meet some horses and a nomad who would help them with the horses.

Kuwaiti   ( 6/9 )
k.thekuwati (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8610.msg125085#msg125085) posts pictures of teams taken~ I took those pictures on Friday, around 8.15 am..
June 9th
I was at the airport this morning to bid farewall to a family member .. but you probably don’t care about that.
Anyway .. I was at starbucks, talking to family; then I see a bunch of people running out of the departure gates with large bags and tons of Camera Equipment. I realized it was a reality tv show, and couldn’t think of anything except the ‘Amazing Race’.
I took some pictures with my camera-phone (which are quite bad). Then my cousin and I decided to go see what the whole thing was about. I asked them if it was the Amazing Race, they said it was a ‘travel show’ .. fair enough.
Then I figured, they are probably on a task .. lets help em cheat. They needed directions to Kuwait Towers, told them to go down the aiport road, hang a right on 1st ring and follow the towers. Then they asked if I had any money.. I figured they are semi-celebrities, so I gave them a kd. Then the camera crew asked for my persmission to record .. couldn’t read the contract, way too blurry. I think I might have given someone my first-born.
I then followed them to the Kuwait towers, took a couple more pictures.


The teams I do remember  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,8610.msg125272.html#msg125272) (it was quite early that day)

1. Girl/Girl (pink and quite hot)[Dustin/Kandece (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=the-amazing-race-20060717000554265.jpg&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch7)]
2. Man/Women team (the woman had a prostethic leg)[Peter/Sarah (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=the-amazing-race-20060717000553140.jpg&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch13) ]
3. Asian team [Edwin/Godwin (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=the-amazing-race-20060717000554812.jpg&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch3) ]
4. Black team. [ Lyn/Karlyn (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=the-amazing-race-20060717000554406.jpg&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch6)]
5. Another Man/Woman team (woman wearing blue .. in the towers shot) [ Rob/Kim (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=the-amazing-race-20060717000554109.jpg&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch8)]
6. Yet Another Man/Woman team (Wearing yellow)[David/Mary  (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=the-amazing-race-200607170005539-1.jpg&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch1) ]

7. [Tyler/James (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=the-amazing-race-20060717000553624.jpg&refPage=&imgAnch=imgAnch11) ] 

All the pictures of the cars were taken at the Kuwait Towers (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=puddin6-12-20060001.jpg&refPage=all&imgAnch=imgAnch112); there were 7 cars  (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=163485407_8385f4a720.jpg&refPage=all&imgAnch=imgAnch116)  there and I saw one more on the way (total) .  The pictures look inverted because I took the shots from the rearview mirror of my car. Keep in mind that the cars don't necessarily represent the number of teams. I saw quite a few crew people (as seen in the shot taken by Nibaq (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=163456359_b2c90d0cd7.jpg&refPage=all&imgAnch=imgAnch99)).
The people in the khakis were the crew (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=puddin6-12-20060012.jpg&refPage=all&imgAnch=imgAnch101), each team had a camera man and sound man.

  Mauritius ,Africa 6/12
More sightings  ~
Izabela(posted at MetForums) (http://www.forumsnet.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=TAR5spoilers;action=display;num=1150062704;start=30#40):

Izabela (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8610.0) is vacationing in Mauritius ,Africa (June 12)
and captures a video (http://s68.photobucket.com/albums/i25/izabela74/) of at least 2 of the teams performing a roadblock with crew in tow~
My husband and I witnessed a Roadblock on June 12 while we were holidaying in Mauritius.
..the couples started showing up between 10-11am - the first two were very close to each other.
The detour involved kayaking out into the ocean. Not sure what they did out there but they were gone for about 1/2 an hour on average.
From memory the first team to arrive was all female,  (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=0016.jpg) the 2nd a guy and girl (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=0018.jpg) - all quite young. They completed the task in that order but the leading team got about 5 minutes in between them. 
We counted 5 teams in total.
The black female team (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=0008.jpg) were in the top five but unfortunately last. 
We saw the Asian guy (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=0009.jpg) but he was off on the side drinking water and cooling down so we cannot actually remember if we saw him with his partner.
The black woman who did the kayak was a bit overweight and I'd guess not the fittest - she nearly died after that one!
One final point - there were 6 kayaks on the beach - perhaps a FF meant someone avoided this task?
:update:
on another forum  (http://www.realitytvtalk.com/forums/showthread.php?s=aa81778ddeb3cd849bd6a0828daffe62&threadid=15419) ,Izabela describes the teams a bit differently.
We counted 5 couples come and go within about an hour
..the couples we saw were a youngish all-girl team (http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/the-amazing-race-20060717000554265.jpg) (winning), [Dustin/Kandice]
2nd was another young couple (a guy and girl (http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/the-amazing-race-20060717000554109.jpg)), [Rob/Kim]
there was the token black couple (http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/the-amazing-race-20060717000554406.jpg), [Lyn/Karlyn]
an asian looking couple (http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/the-amazing-race-20060717000554812.jpg), and [Cho/Bro's]
a geeky looking couple.
The black woman who did the kayaking was absolutely exhausted after the kayak ride and fell on her butt after getting out of it.
I should clarify the above point. She really look p*ssed off and the pair of them weren't in much of a hurry - but we noticed that couples were held up for a couple of minutes and given water before running off to continue the race

Here goes:
Team 1 : f/f as per video (http://[url=http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=9264.0)
Team 2: m/f as per video and looks like same as kuwait carpark to me (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=9260.0)
Team 3: m/m (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=9261.0) i am 80% sure it was same guy as "audition" tape
Team 4: m/f asian male and geeky female (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=9262.0) but not 100% sure as they were not sitting together and by geeky i mean she reminded me of lori in her stance/appearance and not playing up the the cameras as the first 3 teams. She sat on the sun bed under a tree and just waited quietly on spoke to the black female for a short time.
Team 5: f/f black  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=9256.0) - personally it looked like they did not want to be there in terms of all the other teams looking so competitive.

and more posted by Izabela @ sucks  (http://p085.ezboard.com/fsurvivorsucksfrm23.showMessage?topicID=6980.topic&index=245)
Don't forget only the male is asian in that team and the female is what I call my token "Lori".
I would give them a good 20 mins after the 3rd team which was the young m/m team.
The young m/m team arrived 10-15 mins after the leading couples. This 3rd team seemed to catch up some time with this roadblock but still left 3rd.

We were at Merville Beach Hotel which is near Grand Baie  (http://www.mauritius-seychelles.com/merville-beach-hotel-mauritius.html) (sp?) top part from memory
No the teams were too busy to talk to LOL
No we dont know where they went next all we heard was "pit stop" but could not make out where due to the helicopter noise above (which I think you can hear through the whole video).

I've read and heard about people seeing the contestants climbing in the Olympic Stadium's tower in Helsinki, and Phil was spotted in a park/restaurant in Helsinki, wich could also be true.
"Yes, they were also in Tampere week ago friday (june 16th), or actually Ylöjärvi, close to my home. I heard about it from my aunt who drives a taxi, and she had taken one couple from Tampere train station to Ylöjärvi and back. They were hurrying to catch the train to Turku. My aunt was first a bit shocked when few dark skinned americans passed others in the queue and jumped to the car with a man sitting on the front seat who had a  huge camera"

There was another sighting at the Helsinki train station june 16th. A "chinese" looking couple was seen running in the station with a camera man, and they had two other couples following them


Signal  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8610.msg128474#msg128474) checks in with more info !!
Oh and also there is some info about their "task" in Ylöjärvi. Obviously it was some kind of obstacle course at swamp 
The landowner of the area is keeping his mouth shut, but nearby neighbours reported a helicopter and lots of people including security who kept the nosy ones far. The famous clue box was also seen there.

And I have scan for you, puddin :D
I also translated it. Here is the scan of article
(http://img176.imageshack.us/img176/3117/katu2ma.th.jpg) (http://img176.imageshack.us/my.php?image=katu2ma.jpg)

And here's what it says:

AMAZING RACE WAS HERE?

If the travelling route of Amazing Race would finally reach Finland, then where would
the american reality-tv makers head for? Cultural sights that we don't have, or to the
crowded national parks in Lapland? Eyewitnesses have said that production crew looking
very much like the Amazing Race was seen in the middle on June on obstacle course at swamp
in Ylöjärvi.
Foreign production crew with fire trucks and helicopters circling the sky didn't go
unnoticed by local residents, even thought that security personnel kindly prevented the curious ones
to not come too close. Contestants speaking english ran with yellow/black envelopes and cameramen
filming also a box matching the descriptions of the series clue box on a nearby road.

The area is privately owned beautiful swamp area, which in this time of year has nests of cranes
and swans. At winter the 40 hectare swamp is used for skiing. Owner of the land area is not saying anything,
and the production team is not revealing the routes of the still unseen episodes.
If Amazing Race really visited on Pirkanmaa region, it will still take years until the
episode is seen here. Latest season shown by MTV3 was season 5, but in the US the season
currently on production would be 10th.

Belarus ?? ( June 18th  ? guessing for now )

I got some new info,
Few sources have said that the race continued to Belarus   after Finland. And I don't think it was just a connection point.

Switch out Belarus for:

--------------------------------------------------------------

So, uh, I think I *may* have come across racers today. I do not have actual 100% confirmation that it was TAR, but this is what I saw:
~1:15 PM, 6/24/06
49th between 6th and Rock. Center, right outside one of the NBC entrances (not that they were going in).
All female African-American team (as mentioned in that thread that was linked to on the last page)
Getting out of a cab that was from Newark (which made it stand out more from the traditional NYC cabs).
Two crew with them - one boom mic operator, one cameraman.
The girls got out of the cab and asked a local for directions - the mic operator then had to get the person to sign a release and the team looked very impatient while they were waiting.
The biggest tip-off for me was that one of the crew had a yellow "K" tag, and having just re-watched Season 7, it looked exactly like the tags that everyone has on their bags

jlaw   (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8610.375)
I was on a flight from Paris to New York on June 24 with 3 TAR teams - 2 young guys, 2 african american women and a man & woman
At ticketing, my friend  asked the two african american women what tv show it was for. 
One of them answered, "You don't need to worry about it, just move out of the way".  We wound up sitting in the bulkhead between business class and coach, near the bathrooms. 
The man from the man/woman team came over to us and asked if we knew where The News Building was in New York City - he even showed us the clue. 
We tried our best to help him out - even gave him some money.  We asked him lots of questions, most of which he couldn't divulge. 

Air France flight 8600 from Charles DeGalle to JKF.  Departed 6/24 @ 825am
While walking thru airport to get to the right terminal I spotted two rugged-looking young guys, a camera man and what looked like a production person. 
When we got to the terminal and checked in, the agent said they had overbooked the flight and would we mind being bumped to a later flight in exchange for $150 voucher, which we agreed to. 
However, the agent said we might still be on that flight and to check back later. 
We went to cash our vouchers at the ticketing office and the two young guys were there with a stack of passports, which I assume is for themselves and the crew that travels with them. 
When we went back to see if we were going to be on the first flight, we saw the two guys in line to check in and that's when we saw the african american women with their own cameraman. 
When we were called up by an agent, my friend walked in front of the camera, asked her question and got rebuffed. 
We found out that we were going to be on the first flight and after checking our baggage, left walking in front of the camera again.
From what I could tell, each team has their own camera man and sound guy.
Plus there's someone that looks like a production person, but I'm not sure if there's one for every team.
It's difficult to tell from the pictures that have been posted if they are the ones I saw - the african american women for sure, the man/woman team in blue is a possibility.
I keep everything....

Having grown up in the Seattle area I have to wonder where they would start.  I thought (everybody say it!) the Space Needle.  But that was basically visited in TAR4 (when they went to the International Fountain).  Maybe something to do with Boeing?  Microsoft?

But what really clicked in my head is to start on Mt. Rainier or even better, from the ashen slopes of Mt. St. Helens.

Hey you never know , good for speculation maybe , maybe not . And yes I know there is an Asian version of TAR but New Zealand was mentioned here (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8438.msg121763#msg121763) .

"Amazing Race 10 Sighting "
To those who are interested:
A friend of mine saw a team from what I guess is Season 10 on an Air New Zealand flight from Queenstown to Auckland, yesterday, June 2nd. The team spotted was 'an Asian couple, who looked very tired'. They were apparently en route to Singapore.

If I hear any more information I will post it.

It would be very cool to see Phil on the needle for the opening, and Rainer would be an excellent starting point, but it might even be from the water (a lot of TAR starts near the water).

The space Needle wasn't in season four but it was in season three (who can forget Flo going off on poor old Zach.

And damn I hope that couple was from the US version.  I know a fan that would love to see an Asian couple on the show.  I think were were going to see KLingons on the show first.

If they happen to start by going westwards this time, I think I have a chance! Leaving on my China trip today...

Hey y'all, bringing this over from TARflies

"Wanted to share that To my joy I found two locked clueboxes a few days ago in Victoria, Canada while I was walking around with some friends.

One of em was in Bastion Square, an open air square market in downtown and the 2nd was near a Church downtown.

No spotting of teams though but the clueboxes were genuine. Some people stopped by to remark "hey , the Amazing Race is here? cool"

And this being in Victoria, Canada teams are probably on a detour or on their way back to Seattle for the last final leg.But from seeing when the first spoiler was posted, more then likely teams went from Seattle to Victoria. They are very close."


I'm guessing this is one of the Canada races. Not sure if the dates really line up, and this would break TAR mold by not having them fly far away quickly. Victoria is just a short ferry-trip from Seattle. Doubt they'd hit Victoria, then go back to SeaTac.

This is definetly not the Amazing Race. Is the Canada local race.  The "locked clueboxes" is what they use in Canada.

Title: Re: First Spoiler for TAR10
Post by: woden on June 05, 2006, 09:27:07 AM
I'm skeptical about some info so far.

Here's the New Zealand post:
My Sister in Law in going to be on TAR watch in NZ since she got word that they will be passing through again. This time closer to her property. She was told that the guy who owns the land 5 miles from her signed a contract with TAR for exclusive use of his property for 3 days in july. so if she gets any info I will post it here

Here's the Seattle spoiler posts:
FIRST POST: I have the first answer...My other team member is a pilot. He was flying through the Seattle airport earlier this week, and saw all of the teams at the Seattle Tacoma airport ... He didn't see where they were going, and didn't recognize any of the teams...
SECOND POST: My pilot buddy didn't see exactly where the teams were going, but there were apparently only two International flights from gates the teams were congregating around: Hawaii and Tokyo.



If they're doing a western route, one of these has to be wrong. If the guy in NZ got a contract for 3 days in July, it places NZ at the end of the race. Wouldn't make sense to be going to Honolulu/Tokyo first. If they're going to Honolulu/Tokyo first, then the NZ info can't be right.

Also, a little skeptical about the airport info. At first, he says his friend didn't see where they were going. Then suddenly he remembers they were around the Honolulu/Tokyo gates? Hmm...

Tokyo is puzzling too -- if it's in the race, it would have to be a connection. No way they'd do Tokyo in back-to-back seasons.

Starting in Seattle and heading WEST to Hawaii and points further on would be a welcome departure from the usual East to West trip around the globe.  When travelling west you can pick up some nice hours and jet lag is less.  For instance: flight from Washington DC to Los Angeles takes a little over five hours, but you only lose two hours on the clock since you travel through three time zones.  Provides many more opportunities for same day flight and tasks. Hope the sighting in Seattle is a bona fide goodie!
Title: Re: First Spoiler for TAR10
Post by: woden on June 08, 2006, 01:18:01 PM
FWIW, here are the Hawaii airports serviced by Seattle:

MOST SERVICED (several flights all day):
Kauai (LIH)
Honolulu (HNL)
Maui - Kahaului (OGG)
Kona (KOA)

SOMEWHAT SERVICED (several flights in morning)
Molokai (MKK)
Maui - Kapalua (JHM)

LIMITED SERVICE (only a couple flights a day)
Lanai City (LNY)
Hilo (ITO)

Now if only there were a way to figure out which Seattle gate had flights going to Tokyo AND Hawaii...  ???

a lot of my teammates will think i am posting about how our english workshop posters for the summer say 'amazing race' on them and were mistaken by one teacher to be white supremacy propaganda, but that is not why i am writing....

the real reason why this blog is entitled 'the amazing race' is because today in Rijeka we held, for the new summer projecters, our own version of the amazing race. here are the team, and intros of the summer projecters:

 :tup: Thanks for the news! Here's the photo album (http://www.flickr.com/photos/thekuwaiti/). The exif data (click on "more properties" for each photo) is a little confusing. Although many of the pictures were taken on 09 June (8-9 a.m. approx.), they were uploaded on 08 June. Fast workers over there  ;D (could the time zones make that much of a difference?).
Title: Re: First Spoiler for TAR10
Post by: gingerman28 on June 12, 2006, 10:04:38 AM
That now, is what I would call a real SOLID clue from Kuwait.  At least six teams spotted and identified (male and female in yellow shirts are team no. 5 or 6 from the look of the tag on her bag). Also good shot of seven identical (different colors) SUV's parked in front of the Kuwait Airport.  A little confusing at first but one pix seems to be shot in a car's rearview mirror so the shot of the cars is reversed. So if TPTB are up to their usual tricks one more than necessary cars are in the car park. 

So if we have the teams leaving Seattle for Hawaii on or about May 30 will they gone through five legs before arriving in Kuwait on or about June 8 with only six teams now in the running?  That's 10 days so it very well could be. 

Also KKuwait spoiler says that one team asked him for money?  So is leg five the first NEL?  Again possible since NEL has appeared as early as the fifth leg in some previous TAR's.

So again it does look like this is the first TAR to go around the world EAST to WEST.

Looking at what's been posted, I'd offer a couple of comments.  The Kuwait pics look authentic based upon some of the crew you can see in the pictures.  The only question would be when they were actually there.  2nd, the Seattle start information seems a little weak - if they did start from Seattle you would think there would be more spottings than the information from one person who also said they were a semi-finalist.  That person said they didn't make the final interviews but knew the week the race was supposed to start - I don't think so.

I was at the airport this morning to bid farewall to a family member .. but you probably don’t care about that.

Anyway .. I was at starbucks, talking to family; then I see a bunch of people running out of the departure gates with large bags and tons of Camera Equipment. I realized it was a reality tv show, and couldn’t think of anything except the ‘Amazing Race’.

I took some pictures with my camera-phone (which are quite bad). Then my cousin and I decided to go see what the whole thing was about. I asked them if it was the Amazing Race, they said it was a ‘travel show’ .. fair enough.

Then I figured, they are probably on a task .. lets help em cheat. They needed directions to Kuwait Towers, told them to go down the aiport road, hang a right on 1st ring and follow the towers. Then they asked if I had any money.. I figured they are semi-celebrities, so I gave them a kd. Then the camera crew asked for my persmission to record .. couldn’t read the contract, way too blurry. I think I might have given someone my first-born.

I then followed them to the Kuwait towers, took a couple more pictures.

The shots aren’t that good .. but you get the picture (no pun intended).

Great find, Puddin.  I remember reading that post but I also discounted it because I misread it.  I was thinking that the team was going from Queensland, Australia to Auckland.  Why would the race go to Australia again?  Duh!!

Queenstown, N.Z. does have a major airport and it's quite possible that the race returns to New Zealand for the first time since TAR5.

If true, this also means that the race is circling the globe going west.

2. I do not see any fanny packs ( or whatever you call them) with red and yellow.
3. What amazes me is that they are not in a rush. They are very calm, especially in the cars.

If these pictures are in fact of AR10. WHow.  :jam: Its been a long time.   :tup: :hearts: I am so happy, Cannot wait till Sept.

One more thing, 7 cars, does not mean 7 teams, Maybe 2 teams where ahead, and this guy did not take pictures of them.

I think there might be Seven Teams there:

3 sets of Boys Teams [God Help Us All] however the ones with he blue bandanas i thought were production but i feel they might be a team.

The Girls [Come on we need girls to finally win] dont they kind of look like Paula from Real World but she is not on it dont worry she is doing the challenge [or was doing it]

Two Male Female Teams [The old ones and the young one walking]  And the ones walking DONT have bags

I agree Kogs -- also, as to someone's post earler about why they're not in a rush... I'm guessing these shots are during the mandatory waiting period while other groups clear customs. They can't go yet, so they're hanging out.

Teams  ? ? ?
An Asian team #7 ? a black team #6 ?

OK I'm just guessing here so don't hurt me too much  :js:

Asian Team #7 ? along with the f/f team Team #4

(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/163456359_b2c90d0cd7.jpg)

Team Bandana has to be crew becuase in shot they are holding a camera and then when we see the Pinkies backpack sticking out of a door he is holding the sound thing.


And Team "7" the guy in the blue shirt is the same guy as the one next to the Pink Black lady.

I think the teams are:

1. Two Girls {Team 4}
2. Black Hair Girl and Boyfriend {Team Two}
3. Two Guys {Team One}
4. Team Yellow (Mother Son or Mother/Husband) anyway {Team 5}
5. Black People the girl in pink and the man with the red backpack seems to be black {Team 6}
6. The Asian/Indian man and either a man or girl with long hair {Team 7}

Team Three: Bandanas are crew and production.

So looking for some info on Kuwait

Real Answers to Real Questions (http://talesmag.com/rprweb/the_rprs/mid_east/kuwait.shtml)

How much of the local language do you need to know for daily living?
Arabic is needed, as some of the locals don’t speak English at all—unlike other gulf states.

Dress code at work and in public:
Formal. Modest dressing is preferred for women, though they are not as conservative as the Saudis.

Hey guys,

I took those pictures on Friday, around 8.15 am..

I was at the airport, they came running out of the customs place to get to their destination, but they each had to wait for their crew to get their stuff. Each team (two people) had two crew members with them (#3 is actually the crew for a guy/girl team). Their task was to take a rented car from the airport to the Kuwait Towers. Other than the cars in the pictures; I saw another jeep liberty on my way to the towers.

My D50 was in the car, didn't have time to get it until I saw them again at the Towers.

The cars were lined up at the airport; there were several of them (I saw them when I parked my car). Then I went into the airport, got coffee and saw the whole TAR group coming out of customs. I then talked to a team, told them how to get to the towers with a pre-rented car(they were the last people). I then got in my car, drove to the towers (quite fast) where i spotted the line up in front of the towers.

Also, was there any kind of identifying colored flags to designate the parking places, like red and yellow?

2. Man/Women team (the woman had a prostethic leg)
3. Asian team
4. Black team.
5. Another Man/Woman team (woman wearing blue .. in the towers shot)
6. Yet Another Man/Woman team (Wearing yellow)

The people in the khakis were the crew, each team had a camera man and sound man.

( midway )
seen teams from the tv programme 'the amazing race' jump out of 4x4s and get their clues from a small box in a small town; been told off by the production team for trying to pose for a photo with a clue from said box in our hand;

ETA: all NZ sightings seem to be around the same date :)

Hey you never know , good for speculation maybe , maybe not . And yes I know there is an Asian version of TAR but New Zealand was mentioned here (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8438.msg121763#msg121763) .

"Amazing Race 10 Sighting "
To those who are interested:
A friend of mine saw a team from what I guess is Season 10 on an Air New Zealand flight from Queenstown to Auckland, yesterday, June 2nd. The team spotted was 'an Asian couple, who looked very tired'. They were apparently en route to Singapore.

If I hear any more information I will post it.

Question for our helpful friend in Kuwait:

The pix of the seven cars lined up - is that at the airport or at the Towers?  If at the Towers then it means that we have seven teams; if at the airport then we have only the six teams mentioned since TPTB always seem to have one more than necessary of cars, stunts, stuff, etc.

If we start with the usual 11 teams from Seattle on May 30, then we will lose five teams before they arrive in Kuwait on June 9. 

So it starts to look like:

May 30 leave Seattle for Hawaii

June 2 arrive in New Zealand (lose a day crossing the International Date Line)

June 3 End of leg one

June 4 End of leg two

June 5 End of leg three

June 6 End of leg four

June 7 End of leg five\

June 8 Leave from somewhere for Kuwait

June  9 Arrive in Kuwait.

Leave from somewhere for Kuwait
I've borrowed from Chateau's screencap (I'm not linking there again) for the Fri. morning arrivals. The good news is that there isn't much to choose from (Cochin and Islamabad can probably be ruled out). The bad news is that if the teams are connecting from London or Manila/Bangkok, rather than originating there, then the teams could have started their flights from...a lot of different places. (great NZ work, Puddin!  :woohoo:)

Hello,

1. I think the people that asked me for money did have backpacks; don't quite remember.
2. The picture of the cars was at the towers (hence the large tower in the background); there was one car that had yet to arrive when I took that picture.
3. They most likely came from DEL (Delhi, India); based on the times.

According to the TAR AXN Asia website, filming should start around the middle of this year. Since applications must be submitted by 31 March 2006, and the producers were doing the interviews in April, the Asia race could be in the process of filming now.

I doubt Singapore would be a stop in TAR 10, but a stopover for a transit flight may be possible.

I am so excited now! I really hope the team of females will go far in the race, if there really is one!  :hearts:

Amazing Race
By Charlie

Wednesday, May 31 was cold and rainy in UB. Rachel and I went to the gym in the late morning and then enjoyed lunch at our favorite ex-pat watering hole.

As the lattes arrived, we saw a horde of alpha-humans charging through the courtyard of the monastery/museum across the street. Each team of two was followed by a cameraman and sound guy. The teams ran up to a temple, grabbed an envelope, tore it open, ran to a waiting jeep, loaded up and drove away.

People in the restaurant watched, not having any idea what was happening. “They are making a movie,” said the wonderful Ethiopian proprietor. We watched this happen at least ten times before I walked outside and tried to figure out what the hell was going on.

I walked up to a grizzled Australian who appeared to be in charge. “What are we watching here?” I asked. “It’s a TV show.”

“Which TV show?” I asked.

“It’s in development. It doesn’t have a name.”

Whatever. I went back in the restaurant and we kept watching the drama unfold.

Half an hour after it all began, Rachel and I finished our food, paid the bill and walked out of the restaurant. About 10 of 20 jeeps were still parked in front of the restaurant. Americans in travel gear with their camera crews in toe were running all over the place. Mongolians stood by the side of the road, trying to make sense of the spectacle.

Two young African-American women frantically interrogated the Mongolian bystanders. “Do you speak English? Do you speak English?” The Mongolians looked on, totally nonplused.

Then they saw us. “Do you speak English?” “Yes,” I said.

“We need to get to Terelj. Where is it?”

I pointed east and started giving directions. “Come out of here and turn right. Then turn left at the intersection and right at the light. Follow the road for a while until you get to a circle…” They looked confused.

“Can you show us?”

Well, shit. Of course!

So we all piled in the Russian jeep and hit the road. I offered to drive, since I have a Mongolian driver’s license. But Lynn said that she had to drive. The camera guy rode shotgun. Karlyn road in the back seat, on the left. I was in the middle. The sound guy was to my right.

And off we went.

At that moment, I figured that these two women from Alabama were contestants on some two-bit reality show being filmed for Discovery Travel or some other lame cable channel. I asked Lynn and Karlyn and they didn’t seem to know. In fact, they probably knew very well that they are contestants on the Amazing Race. But the rules of the game forbid them – or the crews – from mentioning the name of the show while it is being filmed. I learned this later from a friend who is familiar with how the Amazing Race is shot.

But Karlyn and Lynn didn’t have a whole lot of time to talk about this, since we were all trying to navigate UB traffic without getting killed. We did come very close to being creamed by a bus.

We headed east on Peace Avenue.

“So,” I said, “Where are we going?”

Karlyn busted out the instructions, which said that they should get in their jeep and drive to Terelj while obeying the traffic laws.

“Where’s your map?” I asked.

“We didn’t get one because we found you first.”

The instructions continued, saying that they should park their jeep in the village of Terelj, where they would meet some horses and a nomad who would help them with the horses. And that was it. No more instructions.

“When you see the nomad,” I said, “you should greet him with ‘Sain baina uu?’”

They repeated this a few times and I wrote it down for them.

I explained about the ger areas that we passed on the outskirts of UB. Lynn and Karlyn explained that they had arrived in UB that morning on a train from the Chinese border. They had apparently driven from Beijing to the China-Mongolia border.

“I didn’t expect this place to be so developed,” said Karlyn, as she looked at the rundown Soviet apartment buildings. “Just wait,” I said.

“Seeing this makes me feel blessed to come from Alabama.”

“Amen.”

As we got out of town, the traffic thinned and there were no more big turns. I told them to keep driving until they passed the antenna farm on the right and to look for the fork in the road about 10 or 15 minutes after that. “Turn left at the fork.”

Having mastered the jeep, Lynn became more talkative. “You are a gift sent from God,” she said.

Karlyn continued: “A gift sent from Heaven. Amen.”

Lynn pulled the jeep over to the side of the road. Karlyn wrestled with her door, but could not get it to open. The cameraman had already climbed out to shoot my departure, so I wrestled my way into the front seat to exit through the front passenger door.

The jeep sped towards Terelj and I hired a taxi into town where I picked up some shipping boxes from DHL.

Please, God. Please let Lynn and Karlyn win the Race. Amen.

Keoghan promises 'less faces, more places' in new season
By Rick Porter
February 27 2006

For all the ping-ponging around he has to do, though, it's clear Keoghan still loves the job, and he readily ticks off a few places he'd like the show to go in the future: Mongolia, Bhutan, Nepal, the interior of Africa

Hello,

1. I think the people that asked me for money did have backpacks; don't quite remember.
2. The picture of the cars was at the towers (hence the large tower in the background); there was one car that had yet to arrive when I took that picture.
3. They most likely came from DEL (Delhi, India); based on the times.

I'm still a little bit confused, so help me out on the pictures of the cars.  Scenes #1, #8 and #10 show a lineup of seven cars with empty space to the left of the last car. These scenes seem to be in front of the Kuwait Towers. But in scenes #2, #3 and #5 there is a curb and shrub next to the last car and we see at least one team and cameracrew walking off to the left.  So to me this is two locations. Can our friend in K set me straight. And how many cars actually are seen at the Kuwait Tower. K says that when he took the picture (seven cars) one more was still to come.  That would put the number of teams in Kuwait at 8 and mean only  three legs had been run before arriving in Kuwait.

Also if we have a sighting now in Mongolia (May 31)and New Zealand (June 2)  we now have a week to kill before the surviving eight teams arrive in Kuwait. And with the loss of a day because we cross the International Date Line, we would have to have the teams leave Seattle on May 28. And if they do go to Mongolia first, they probably connect through Tokyo.

Ulan Bator (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulan_Bator), The Monastery of the Living Buddha



Quote
It was moved often to various places along the Selenga, Orhon and Tuul rivers until reaching its present location in the late 18th century, on the high road from Peking to Kiakhta (Kiachta), about 700 m. N.W. of Peking and 165 m. S. of the trading town of Kiakhta on the Russian frontier. It is the holy city of the Mongols and the residence of the " Living Buddha,"  metropolitan of the Kalka tribes, who ranks third in degree of veneration among the dignitaries of the Lamaist Church. This " resplendently divine lama " resides in a sacred quarter on the western side of the town, and acts as the spiritual colleague of the Chinese amban. It prospered in the 1860s as a commercial center on the tea route between Russia and China (early 20th century trade was valued at over 1,000,000 ?dollar a year) and was the seat of the Qing amban (highest imperial official) in Mongolia, who controled all temporal matters, and was specially charged with the control of the frontier trade town of Kiakhta and its trade with Russia.

Please help and forgive my ignorance!!! :-[

I dont quite understand.  The race started in Seattle and is traveling from west to east. Correct?

From what I have read, the sightings have been first in Mongolia, Then in New Zeland, and then in Kuwait.  I really dont get it. I have been looking at maps, and dont understand how they go to Mongalia and then all the back to New Zeland and then all the way to Kuwait.  It does not add up. 

WHat do you guys think?

TPTB for TAR are known to follow the rule that the shortest distance between two points is not a straight line!  They have been known to backtrack and go by the longest way just to pile up the miles so that they can brag that TAR10, for example, covered a record 75,000 miles on their trip around the world.  So the seemingly indiret itinerary from Seattle to Ulan Bator (via Hawaii and or Tokyo) down to New Zealand up to Singapore and then on to Kuwait via New Delhi makes sense.

puddin' recently posted an article from TV Week http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8594.0

In that article, Phil admitted to using mock teams to test various tasks in each leg.  All this great info has me skeptical that we are seeing acutal racers.  None-the-less, it is fun to chase down leads and it will be even more fun to see if all of this is correct next Fall.

Imagine how much glee we will feel  ;D  :jumpy: when the teams are posted on the CBS web site and one team is all-female from Alabama.

Thanks for all the input.

All the pictures of the cars were taken at the Kuwait Towers; there were 7 cars there and I saw one more on the way (total 8).  The pictures look inverted because I took the shots from the rearview mirror of my car. Keep in mind that the cars don't necessarily represent the number of teams. I saw quite a few crew people (as seen in the shot taken by Nibaq).

I will check if any of my friends have pictures; I think Nibaq might have a couple from the inside the airport.

I was just reading this , what a coincidence ..

During a typical romp on Amazing Race (for the uninitiated, a race around the world, usually involving often-bickering teams of two), contestants are allowed to ask locals for help but they can't say what show they're on. "We had a lot of people say, 'Are you on The Amazing Race?'" Vaughn remembers. "No matter where you are in the world, [you have to] say, 'No, we're doing a travel documentary.' "

I'm travelling somewhere in China right now trying to get to the TAR10 teams, so the mileage calculations might have to take a while. Sorry guys!

I can probably help with the Greece thing though. In the Opening Flashing Sequence, there was a frame of a pier with a fortress in the background, and we've found this at Nafplion, on the eastern flank of the Peloponesse. We were kind of perplexed that it never appeared on the show (this has never happened before), so, well, mystery solved!

This seems to be a lot more travel time than is usual for TAR.  First eps traditionally take up to two days to complete, so perhaps the teams first had to do a task in China before continuing on to the border.  Maybe they had to find a spot on the Great Wall first, and this clue told them to continue on to drive on to the border and catch a train to UlanBator.

This site (http://www.mogultravel.mn/mongolia.htm) describes Millie's Espresso as being "popular among expats." This site (http://talesmag.com/rprweb/the_rprs/pacific/mongolia.shtml) (towards the bottom of the page) mentions Millie, the Ethiopian-American owner. And this site (http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hubb/northern-asia/few-question-scottw-ulaan-baatar-20986) states that the restaurant is near the Chojin Lama museum (former monastery). So I'll go out on a limb and call Chojin Lama (haven't found a home page for it yet).

The GE stuff is interesting. If you look at the northern suburbs you can see the difference between the ger-city and the Western/Soviet city.

I agree with the others that the drive to the border (if the poster heard the account correctly) is a bit puzzling. Here's a newspaper story (http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/travel/2002837704_mongoliatrain05.html?syndication=rss) of the 33-hour train trip: the border delay occurs when they switch the undercarriage. And here's a webshot (http://community.webshots.com/photo/365154010/1365867829071239172ryAEkd) of a ticket for train 23. And I checked the Miat 2006 schedule (http://www.miat.com/schedule.php?SCHEDULE_ID=21) for PEK-ULN: it's sparse, but there are flights available (none on Tuesday).

Don't think that there is an actual pit stop in China; but most first two-hour eps have various tasks and lots of traveling.  So if we follow your schedule with teams leaving Seattle on May 28, then after they arrive in Beijing and clear customs at 11:30PM they may have to find cars/taxies and proceed to someplace between Beijing and Erlyan.  Perhaps the Great Wall. But the teams have to bed down for the night to wait for opening "hours of operation" let's say 8:30AM.  They do the task.  Clue tells them to drive/take taxi to Erlyan and find train station and book train to Ulan Bator.  Since train leaves at 10:30PM  this gives them plenty of time to walk the wall and  to do tasks, find clue and drive on to Erlyan.

Just some possibilities.  So the first elimination is at the pit stop in or around Ulan Bator (Terelj).

By the way, just in case anyone really cares, the name of the desert is just Gobi.  Gobi means desert in Mongolian, so it is redundant to say Gobi Desert.

Oh Chateau !!!!!!!!!!  :yourock:

I finally nailed down The Pilot on the exact date of the SeaTac sighting. Here is the text of his e-mail:

"Saturday May 27th, we landed at 10:50a local time in SEA and dep at 3:08p lcl.
So that puts them in the South Satellite Terminal at SEA, and would have to be departing, because when you arrive into that term you go straight down to an underground train to the Main Terminal for luggage and ground trans. It's literally a satellite term with no way out but on an airplane. If I had to guess, I bet I noticed them last at about 1:30 in the term."

That should settle the start date. This loosens up the dates quite a bit and makes the 7 teams in Kuwait much more realistic.

He also mentions that Horizon flys to Victoria out of the same terminal.

Okay, if there is a pit stop before Mongolia then the start date gets moved one day further back to Saturday May 27th.

Here's the South Satellite (http://www.portseattle.org/about/maps/southsatellite.shtml). Almost half the airlines use it just for arrivals, which should narrow it down a bit.
Title: Re: Spoiler's for TAR10
Post by: Chateau d If on June 16, 2006, 02:58:24 AM
Here is the list of Carriers out of the South Satellite from Slowhatch's link.

And a listing from Airwise of flights from SEA to Beijing.

So teams leaving from this terminal would have had to been going on either OZ 271 (Asiana) at 1:40 pm or Northwest 7 at 2:45 pm.

Well this is consistent with the pilot's estimate of 1:30 pm!

I would guess that some other teams were at a different terminal seeking the faster United flights out of SEA  ;D

TAR10 spotted at SEATAC May 27 - headed to Beijing
I rode on United's flight between Seattle and Tokyo with many of TAR10 teams Saturday May 27. The airport boarding area was 'buzzing' with couples dressed alike who were followed by camera crews. Each couple wore matching numbered tags on their backpacks and were dressed alike. The pair next to me (Team #1) pointed out the window at another plane, not yet departing, and kept asking the flight crew about our on-time departure and arrival status. They also inquired about Chinese currency exchange rates for their next destination in Beijing. I received the response, "we are filming a travel show," when I asked what was going on.


Teams were allowed priveliged secret early boarding, to allow camera crews to get more footage on the plane and to stow equipment. At least four teams were counted on the flight, possibly more. Everyone must have had a late night. The camera crew immediately in front of Team #1 passed out like professional airplane sleepers. Team #1 also snoozed soon after departing.


I recognize the two blonds in Blogger K The Kuwaiti's pictures but no sight of Team #1.

Thanks, Puddin. If everything checks out, then the best candidate would be UA 875 non-stop at 1:28 p.m. NWA 7 leaves about an hour later, and NWA 85 about an hour after that.
The south satellite is used by United for arrivals only; but then again, neither poster mentioned seeing all the teams.

I find it werid that the poster above did not describe Team #1  , anyone have an account over there and could maybe ask him what they looked like ? Could be they were one of the first eliminated teams ? or maybe just a team that k.kuwaiti did not see ..anyhoooooooo

Word has it Charlie from Mongolia might be dropping by to answer some questions , I'm just not sure when ? So if you all could think up some questions then shoot them off !

One question I'd like to ask Charlie if he recognizes any of the teams from k.kuwaiti's album  , such as Lynn and Karlyn  ?

More sightings  ~
Izabela@MetForums (http://www.forumsnet.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.cgi?board=TAR5spoilers;action=display;num=1150062704;start=30#40):

My husband and I witnessed a DETOUR on June 12 while we were holidaying in Mauritius.
We went to the beach outside our hotel one morning and would you believe there's a clue box standing in the sand about 100m from where we were!
Anyway we watched the camera crew for an hour or so getting ready, testing the light and all that.
Finally the couples started showing up between 10-11am - the first two were very close to each other.
The detour involved kayaking out into the ocean. Not sure what they did out there but they were gone for about 1/2 an hour on average.
From memory the first team to arrive was all female, the 2nd a guy and girl - all quite young. They completed the task in that order but the leading team got about 5 minutes in between them. 
We counted 5 teams in total.
We have some camcorder footage we'll try and post something from it soon.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ooops I just remembered they were both female not as I wrote before.
Yes Yes Yes
The black female team were in the top five but unfortunately last. 
We saw the Asian guy but he was off on the side drinking water and cooling down so we cannot actually remember if we saw him with his partner.
I have to say it gives you a totally new perspective on the race when you see how much the teams really interact and help each other
.

( in reply to the All-Female teams )
There were the two "good looking" girls that came in first and left first (obviously the winners of this leg) and then the black all female team. So we have two to pin our hopes on.

I just heard a rumor about TAR visiting Finland on June 16. They were spotted in Helsinki's Olympic Stadium, and "some station" in Turku, probably railway station. I have no idea if this is true or not, but seems like it would make sense according to the race calendar. Really interesting, if this turns out to be true.

Anyone know how to translate Swedish /Finlandia ?  :lol: I can make out proabably the Mongolia & Kuwait spoiler but  Turussa/Turku might be our Finland spoiler? and this is proabably the Olympic,Helsinki/ spoiler ~Helsingin Olympiastadionilla

Tällä hetkellä Amazing Race 10 -kauden kuvaukset ovat käynnissä ympäri maailmaa, ja siihen saattaa liittyä eräs spoileri, joka saattaa kiinnostaa monia. Tieto ei siis spoilaa mitenkään lopputuloksia, vaan lähinnä paikkoja, missä kilpailijat ovat käyneet.

Spoilaa
Useiden nettisivujen mukaan kyseistä kautta on 16.6. kuvattu Helsingissä ja Turussa. Joidenkin lähteiden mukaan kilpailijat kävivät Helsingin Olympiastadionilla, mutta ilmeisesti kilpailijat ovat käyneet myös Turussa. Tämä ei tosin ole vielä mitään faktaa, joten todennäköisesti asiaa joudutaan odottamaan aina syksyyn asti, jolloin Amerikassa näytetään sarjan kymmenes tuotantokausi. Spoilereiden mukaan kilpailijat ovat käyneet myös mm. Mongoliassa, Mauritiuksella ja Kuwaitissa, ja tämä tieto on lähes täysin varmaa.

It looks like TPTB have followed our advice and have TAR10 teams going to many new places: Mongolia, Mauritius, Kuwait, Finland.  Still have some gaps there for additional new places: i.e. between June 2 sighting in New Zealand and June 9 sighting in Kuwait.  And between June 12 sighting in Mauritius and June 16 sighting in Finland.

Additionally, it looks like the fame of TAR is spreading around the world and it is hard now for TPTB to go to places unseen.

Still holding out hope for a stop in Ireland!

THanks to Jeenbleving over at TWOPS  :jam::

"Good news, everybody!

I decided to actually take my lunch for once and spent fifteen minutes talking to an exceedingly helpful woman at the Seattle Film & Music office -- she'd even been at the starting line!

The starting line is: Kite Hill at Gas Works Park in Seattle! (So much for my guess of Snoqualmie Falls.) Here's an aerial map of the park. Kite Hill is the roughly circular thing in the upper left-hand corner of the map. There's a sundial on top, IIRC -- my company picnic was at Gas Works last year, but I haven't been there since then.

What she said: Phil and the teams were at the top of Kite Hill; the luggage was roughly where the "trail" in "Burke Gilman Trail" is located on the map, and the cars were lined up in the parking lot close to where the red blip on the trail is. There were 13 cars and 12 (!) teams. They set it up with a fireboat shooting jets of water out on Lake Union (off to the left side of the linked map), and floatplanes taking off and landing. (Since Lake Union is, in fact, a place where planes normally land -- airport code LKE, if anyone cares, I don't know if the planes were there specially for that.)

There were about 75 crew people and 40 crew vehicles.

It was quite rainy, though on an off, while they were filming. She expected somebody to slip while running down Kite Hill to get to their luggage, and in fact some of the crew did, but no contestants did. (Darn.)

They also did some still shots at Hamilton Viewpoint in West Seattle the day before, and "two guys and a camera" went around the city doing some "beauty shots".

She couldn't tell me anything about the teams.

She said all in all, the production company seemed quite happy with things, and the Seattle film people would welcome them back again any time.

I have some photocopies of permit/map pages that I'll post when I get home.

We now know where the starting line was!!!!!

Only one of each couple went in the kayak while the other waited on the beach.
The black woman who did the kayak was a bit overweight and I'd guess not the fittest - she nearly died after that one!
the guy was dark haired. Can't remember the girl clearly - blonde i think. If we ever get our dv tape onto this pc I have pictures of the first two couples.
One final point - there were 6 kayaks on the beach - perhaps a FF meant someone avoided this task?

TPTB habitually add one more than is necessary so that late arriving teams never are sure if there still is someone behind them.  So if six kayaks were seen on the beach and only five teams, then this is SOP with TAR.

From your Finish link Puddin:

Quote
Minäkin arvasin, ettei tällä kierroksella putoa kukaan, koska Phil sanoi "A couple may be eliminated".  Muistan sen hyvin selvästi, koska sanoin ääneen että eivät ne mitään putoa. En kyllä itseasiassa ole aivan satavarma, onko se repliikki aina sama vai voiko se olla "may" eikä "will" vaikka olisi pudotuskierros menossa.



Quote
Minusta Colin tosiaan sanoi "My ox is broken"  eli "Minun härkäni on rikki". Mikään ei koskaan missään ole ollut hänen vikansa, joten jos pöhkö eläin ei tajua ohjaamatta kävellä siihen suuntaan kuin vieraalla kielellä karjuva outo hyypiö tahtoo, sen täytyy olla rikki. *räkänauru*

Ooops I just remembered they were both female not as I wrote before.

The second team sure looked like m/f to me (why would a girl be wearing board shorts?). From the Kuwait pics it looks like these are Team #4 (blond girls) and Team #2 (compare their height difference).

It's interesting how, in the Gasworks map on the filming permit, they have closed various intersections.  It looks like they have tried to direct the teams to the west.  That points them to the Aurora Bridge for their trip to the airport.  This is the same bridge that teams in TAR3 used when they finished their race.  But they were coming from some West Seattlle park.  To get to the airport from Gasworks park (yes, I grew up in Seattle) the fastest way is Interstate 5 which is to the east of the park.  It takes 27 min the fast way (http://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=2101+N+Northlake+Way,+Seattle,+WA+98103+%4047.646762,-122.333754&daddr=17801+International+Blvd.,+seattle,+wa&f=li&hl=en&cid=&ie=UTF8&om=1).

What will follow?  I think the teams will take the Aurora Bbridge but will get hoplessly lost as it dumps them out into downtown Seattle.  From the waterfront, 12 teams will have to scramble eastward through downtown to find the 5 freeway.  Once they get on the 5 they will be okay.  But the on-ramps are few and far between.   ;D

Post by: ScottSchrantz on June 20, 2006, 03:31:01 PM
I didn't grow up in Seattle, but I've been there a handful of times, most recently just last Christmas. The Aurora Bridge doesn't "dump" you downtown, it puts you right on Hwy 99, the Alaksan Way viaduct. That whisks you speedily above downtown, then takes you further south right to the 509 freeway and SeaTac. I thought that was the "secret" route locals used to get to the airport to avoid traffic on the I-5.
Title: Re: Spoiler's for TAR10
Post by: Chateau d If on June 20, 2006, 03:52:19 PM
You may well be right about that.  I just noticed that the permit map kind of blocks both directions.  I guess those are blocks to hold back local traffic.  So now I think the teams could go either way. 

My time in the Seattle area ended so long ago and included some dumb mistakes driving around the Aurora Bridge.  I was convinced that it would be trouble when Google maps came up with the route along the 5.  After looking closely at the images I see that the "dump" I referred to is really just the road going into a nice tunnel.  So, yea, it looks fast.

But you know, it was post-rush-hour late morning so I'm holding out for the 5 !   :knuckles:

That does look promising, Puddin -- guess we'll find out!
ETA: If someone could get a decent vidcap from their audition tape at about 2:33 where the yeloow shirt guy is jumping into the truck, I think the shoes match the guy in the Kuwait pics -- white soles, then alternating blue/white/blue.

Here are some Turku pics, just for fun. The castle looks like a pitstop possibility...

As long as we're waiting for the next reliable info to come along, here's some spec about the leg after Mauritius -- looking at the dates (June 11/12 in Mauritius & June 16/17 in Finland), there's probably a leg in between. Presuming they leave on June 13 from Mauritius, here are Tuesday departures:

http://mauritius-airport.intnet.mu/schedules/sched_en/dsft.htm

If they have a longer pitstop and leave June 14, here are Wednesday departures:

http://mauritius-airport.intnet.mu/schedules/sched_en/dsfw.htm

Given the current trajectory of the route (and bypassing countries visited last season by TAR), here are some more likely destinations: South Africa, England, France, Madagascar, Kenya, or one of the surrounding islands (like Reunion or Rodrigues). The options from Mauritius are pretty limited, with Johannesburg, London, and Paris offering the only connections to other destinations either within Africa or Europe. If they headed to another island, Madagascar or Kenya, these would likely be destinations in and of themselves. Just spouting while we wait...  B:)

I was reading up on Izabela's posts on both sites yesterday. Her lastest one (thanks to Sucks) is interesting as she mentions the audtion tape guys Puddin found.  :jumpy: Awesome job puddin!!! You deserve a prize!

"Hi everyone

I dont know if I should be talking on two forums but how else can I answer your question?

Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is for Izabela, when you mentioned the 5 teams you said one was a geeky couple. Could you please expand on their description? Have you seen them on the k the kuwaiti pictures?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here goes:
Team 1 : f/f as per video
Team 2: m/f as per video and looks like same as kuwait carpark to me
Team 3: m/m i am 80% sure it was same guy as "audition" tape
Team 4: m/f asian male and geeky female but not 100% sure as they were not sitting together and by geeky i mean she reminded me of lori in her stance/appearance and not playing up the the cameras as the first 3 teams. She sat on the sun bed under a tree and just waited quietly on spoke to the black female for a short time.
Team 5: f/f black - personally it looked like they did not want to be there in terms of all the other teams looking so competitive.

And to chaperone

Theory: Could the video spoiler be a staged fake "leg" intentionally out in the open to mislead the spoiling community. Possible? Or too conspiracy theory-ish? We've heard of fake legs being run intentionally to mislead, right?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am going to cry myself to sleep for a year if this leg was fake. However, if it was it was a hell of a performance. If you could see the whole video they all would be up for oscars lol.

Actually we were surprised how little security they did have however judging by everone else watching around us they had no idea what was going on bar 1 couple.

The roadblock happened basically next to Merville Beach Hotel which is known as one of the oldest hotels on the island. It is over an hour's drive from the airport.

We were fairly sure the pitstop was after this roadblock and there are several resort style hotels near by they could have gone to. However they arrived in cars so its possible they could have driven anywhere after that.

About halfway between the airport and Merville is the capital, Port Louis. Good locations here for clues/tasks etc would be Le Caudan waterfront and the markets which are close to each other.

Watching it all again is so exciting"

If the picture of the family next to the cluebox was taken in the morning then the location is somewhere in the northwest quadrant of the island.  This comes from the shadows in font of them and ocean to their right.  Probably Grand Bay.

I think Chateau deserves a prize too!  :gman:

Tomatoes?  (http://www.spanishpropertyworld.com/la_tomatina_valencia_tomato_festival_spain.htm)  :lol3:
Although the Tomato Festival in Bunol, Valencia has no religious connections and was only started in 1945 this festival along with the Pamplona Bull Run is one of Spains most famous and well known festival.
The Festival La Tomatina is one huge tomato fight and each year around 30,000 people turn up to take part.
The festival starts early in the morning when everyone turns up and dines on a breakfast of Chorizo and Rose wine.
By 11am in the morning everyones inhibitions are loosened and five huge tomato filled rockets are sent into the skies above the town.
From this point it is every man, woman and child for themselves as the event turns into a tomato slinging war. Everyone is supposed to adhere to a small number of rules: You must squash the tomato before throwing it and you are not allowed to throw anything other than tomatoes.
Each year the Tomatoes throwing Festival last fro around two hours and in total some 125,000 kilos of tomatoes are squashed and thrown.
The festival also brings out a good community spirit where everyone involves helps out with the cleaning up and hosing down.
You can easily get to Bunol by flying into Valencia Airport. If you are flying to Valencia from the UK then you can find well priced flights and deals through Easyjet.
La Tomatina Festival, The Tomato throwing Festival, is held on the last Saturday of August every year and has been a regular event since 1945.

At first I thought the lady was fixing her hair but it looks like both teams had to be fitted with microphones. And I can't hear the sound clearly but it seems a lady (PA, maybe?) was shouting at one of the female team to get out of the water: I guess the second team member shouldn't have been helping her partner.

No, this is not a first hand account. Don't really want to divulge the source.



There is a probability that they fly in from Paris according to my info. I'm not sure how you guys check this, but see if there is a flight from Paris to Barcelona that arrives in Barcelona at 8:35PM yesterday via Air France.

Don't forget only the male is asian in that team and the female is what I call my token "Lori".
I would give them a good 20 mins after the 3rd team which was the young m/m team.

F/F black - personally it looked like they did not want to be there in terms of all the other teams looking so competitive.

Here's the link to the photo:

My gut says it's from an earlier season (TAR1? TAR6?), but if so, I can't figure out what team it is. Frank/Margarita were around until China in season 1, yeah? Maybe them? They definitely don't match any teams from TAR6 left by the time they reached China (Adam/Rebecca, Hayden/Aaron, Kris/John, Freddy/Kendra). So my guess is TAR1, but maybe it's new. Whatcha think?

Post by: Chateau d If on June 23, 2006, 04:43:54 PM
I found this elsewhere in their album.  It says Christmas 2005 when the camera date says 2005:12:24

And it was filed in Photobucket on 2006:01:31  =  January 31st, 2006.

The picture they titled The Amazing Race was filed 2005:11:10  = November 10th, 2005

I don't think it's our race.

Online albums such as photobucket sometimes offer the option of reading the exif data of a photo. Click on a photo to see it full size, then look for a button such as "more properties" (flickr) or "exif data" (photobucket). As for this particular album, the author seems to be working as a costumed player at a water theme park (sunasia polar world) in the city of Dalian. And the "race" photo looks like some kind of tea ceremony.

Guys, I think we have a the final city of our race!!!! :jam:

Thanks to  Coretti    over at TWOPS

"Today @ 3:37 pm

So, uh, I think I *may* have come across racers today. I do not have actual 100% confirmation that it was TAR, but this is what I saw:

~1:15 PM, 6/24/06
49th between 6th and Rock. Center, right outside one of the NBC entrances (not that they were going in).
All female African-American team (as mentioned in that thread that was linked to on the last page)
Getting out of a cab that was from Newark (which made it stand out more from the traditional NYC cabs).
Two crew with them - one boom mic operator, one cameraman.

The girls got out of the cab and asked a local for directions - the mic operator then had to get the person to sign a release and the team looked very impatient while they were waiting.

The biggest tip-off for me was that one of the crew had a yellow "K" tag, and having just re-watched Season 7, it looked exactly like the tags that everyone has on their bags.

Again, I hope this isn't a fluke, and apologize if this was inadvertently a team on some other reality show - but given the timeline I'm reading, this might just fit."

Hopes this helps.!!!

The Big Apple as final destination?  Been there, done that, have the tee shirt.

More likely, me thinks, a decoy team.  Have had them before in NYC, I do believe.

Anyway, what are the interntional flights arriving in Newark in the morning?  Most international flights arrive in the afternoon at JFK. But if we can find international flights at EUR, perhaps we can guess from where they might be arriving.

Here's some pics in a train from Tampere to Turku :)
http://viltsu.net/gallery/v/Yhteiset/Matkat/Turku2006/
I heard from a reliable source that some woman had talked with one couple in the train and the couple said that they had flown from Madagascar to Helsinki and from Helsinki to Tampere and Ylöjärvi and then they had to travel with a train to Turku where they must find the cars and drive to quarry mines in Lohja. What happened after that is unknown.

Heres the Tytyri mine  (http://www.kaupunki.lohja.fi/matkailupalvelukeskus/default.asp?sivu=85&alasivu=95&kieli=826)and the  Tytyri limestone mine

 (http://personal.eunet.fi/pp/jarnef/comenius/tytyri.htm)
Tytyri mine museum, Lohja. Mining has been a source of livelihood in Lohja since the 16 th century, when Gustavus Vasa, King of Sweden and Finland gave his permission to start the first iron mine in this country. Limestone was first excavated in 1897 and industrial mining began in 1911. It became partly subterranean in 1947 when great blocks were droped from the surface quarry to a crushing plant, 110 metres deeper. In 1956 all mining was under the ground. Today the miners work at 350 metres. The network of tunnels crisscrossning under the lake and the town is over 60 kilometres long. A museum demonstrating the work in Tytyri mine was opened on a level 110 metres below the surface, in May 1988.

It's impossible to find an online translation program that could translate Finnish correctly   ;D
So let me do it. The part about Amazing Race:

"Menomatkasta muodostui jo jännä, kun Tampereelta junan (pikajuna 920) kyytiin hyppäsi isohko porukka,
rinkkoja kantavia ihmisiä sekä joukko kuvaajia ja äänittäjiä.
Matkan alettua ja edetessä kävi sitten ilmi, että kyseessä olikin Amazing Race -sarjan tulevan tuotantokauden osanottajat sekä tiestysti kuvaajat/yms.
Kyseessä siis sarjan 10:s kausi, joka tulee USA:ssa ulos syksyllä, Suomessa ehkäpä ensivuoden puolella. Gallerista löytyy muutama kuva.
Turkuun päästyämme pääsimme ihmettelemään kun kilpailijat hyppäsivät rautatieaseman edestä vuorka-autojen kyytiin ja suuntasivat kulkunsa kaupungille,
kuvaajien ja helikopterin saattelemina.
"

and here in english

"On the way there it was exciting when a group of people with camera and sound crews came aboard from Tampere (express train 920) carrying backpacks.
After the journey beginned I found out that they were The Amazing Race's upcoming season's participants and of course camera crews etc.
It will be the the series 10th season that will be aired in the US in the fall, in Finland maybe next year. In the gallery you can find some pics.
When arriving to Turku we got the chance to see the participants jumping to rental cars in front of the train station and then headed to the city with cameramen
and helicopter following them.

Tällä hetkellä Amazing Race 10 -kauden kuvaukset ovat käynnissä ympäri maailmaa, ja siihen saattaa liittyä eräs spoileri, joka saattaa kiinnostaa monia. Tieto ei siis spoilaa mitenkään lopputuloksia, vaan lähinnä paikkoja, missä kilpailijat ovat käyneet.

Spoilaa
Useiden nettisivujen mukaan kyseistä kautta on 16.6. kuvattu Helsingissä ja Turussa. Joidenkin lähteiden mukaan kilpailijat kävivät Helsingin Olympiastadionilla, mutta ilmeisesti kilpailijat ovat käyneet myös Turussa. Tämä ei tosin ole vielä mitään faktaa, joten todennäköisesti asiaa joudutaan odottamaan aina syksyyn asti, jolloin Amerikassa näytetään sarjan kymmenes tuotantokausi. Spoilereiden mukaan kilpailijat ovat käyneet myös mm. Mongoliassa, Mauritiuksella ja Kuwaitissa, ja tämä tieto on lähes täysin varmaa. Kaudella 10 poikkeuksellisesti kierretään maapalloa länteen päin, aikaisemminhan se on ollut toisin

MarleeRojas (http://www.tarflies.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=882&start=120) recognized some of the teams from Signals link ~


All Male team!
Hey...I know who the all male team is...not personally but I remember randomly looking at their myspace pages since they are friends with Aras Baskauskas and his brother (Aras winner of Survivor) and Erika Landin (who probably casted them, because she casted Aras).

Anyway here is a group pic...
(http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/Turku/267414451_l.jpg)
In the red circle is Aras...blue are the two guys...one on the left is Tyler, and one of the right is James.

I recognized them because of the pictures from the Finland train! One was standing and talking to the crew guy in the blue tank top (Tyler) and the other was with the blonde chick from the blondie team (James).

here are their myspaces..I know it says they logged on today but the race may be over now, or maybe during a pitstop.

Sure I can  :js:

"At this moment, they are filming the 10th season of The Amazing Race around world, and
we might have a spoiler that could delight some people. This will not spoil the end in any way, only the places where the contestants have visited.

Spoiler
According to several websites the 10th season has been filmed in Helsinki and Turku july 16th.
Some sources say that the contestants visited Helsinki Olympic Stadium,
but apparently they have also visited Turku. This is not a 100% fact, so I guess we have to wait
until the fall to know when the season will be aired in the US.
According to spoilers the have visited for example Mongolia, Mauritius and Kuwait, and that is almost certain.
In the 10th season they will travel towards west, previously in the east
"

I could add here myself that the I've read and heard about people seeing the contestants climbing in the Olympic Stadium's tower in Helsinki, and Phil was spotted in a park/restaurant in Helsinki, wich could also be true. Was he on the job or just having a drink is unknown  :lol:
Those are all rumours of course until proven a fact :D

Again no problem!

I read this from another forum, it's a reply to a post saying that the teams were seen at the Helsinki-Vantaa airport june 16th:

"Jep, myös Tampereella olivat viikko sitten perjantaina. Tai itse asiassa Ylöjärvellä, sattumalta täällä pari sataa metriä omasta kotitalostani. Itse kuulin asiasta taksikuski-tädiltäni, joka kyyditsi yhden parin rautatieasemalta Ylöjärvelle ja takaisin. Sitten niillä ilmeisesti oli kiire Turun junaan.
Tätiparka oli ollut aluksi hiukan pihalla kun kyytiin hyppää ohi jonon pari tummaihoista jenkkiä ja etupenkille äijä hermeettisen kokoisen kameran kanssa"

it says:

"Yes, they were also in Tampere week ago friday (june 16th), or actually Ylöjärvi, close to my home. I heard about it from my aunt who drives a taxi, and she had taken one couple from Tampere train station to Ylöjärvi and back. They were hurrying to catch the train to Turku. My aunt was first a bit shocked when few dark skinned americans passed others in the queue and jumped to the car with a man sitting on the front seat who had a  huge camera"

There was another sighting at the Helsinki train station june 16th. A "chinese" looking couple was seen running in the station with a camera man, and they had two other couples following them.

There was another sighting at the Helsinki train station june 16th. A "chinese" looking couple was seen running in the station with a camera man, and they had two other couples following them.


Good info Signal ! So the Alabama girls  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8610.msg125091#msg125091) made it to Finland as well as the Asian / m/f team !! Throw in the Blond F/F team and the M/M team and then someone else mentions a Couple in Finland ( some woman had talked with one couple )  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8610.msg127530#msg127530) ? It just maybe the Mauritius (http://blog.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.ListAll&friendID=36829033) spoiler was a NEL ? or there may have been 6 teams in Mauritius afterall or or ..ok my brain is on overdrive  :lol:

What's the catch?!?

Getting spoilers on TAR10, while the race is still being run, seems too easy.

Is TAR so popular that we all know what to look for?
Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: gingerman28 on June 26, 2006, 01:13:28 PM
Yes, indeed, TAR is getting to be wellknown around the world, not just in the old USofA.  So it is going to be harder and harder for TPTB to hide from the ever increasing alert eyes especially those with camera phones at the ready.

So, I would imagine that we will be seeing more and more decoy teams running complete with camera crews without tape just to hide some of the activity of the legit teams.  Another reason why an All-Star TAR is just about off the shelf: previous teams would be spotted on the spot so to speak.

that was one of my first thoughts too but romber managed to roam around without too many actuall sightings considering they were in the final 3. certainly would be easier to track/hunt them down knowing who to look for.

7:00pm – Analysis of Tomato Pile
Go figure; if I was in charge of a national historic site I wouldn't let a giant pile of tomatoes anywhere near the place, no matter what promises were made. Maybe this doesn't involve a "tomatina" food fight but another search task: "find the green tomato" or something similar.

My guess is that they ended Sunday morning.  The girls in New York had to catch a flight to meet up with all the teams and Phil at the end point.

Did you notice that there was a "K" on the packpack of the soundman in the Finland photos?  Just like what the NY spoiler said.

Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: Chateau d If on June 27, 2006, 04:08:00 PM
Speaking of the Finnish spoiler.  I got this translation from a friend of mine who is Finnish. 

Here's my friend's translation:

Quote
Tällä hetkellä Amazing Race 10 -kauden kuvaukset  ovat käynnissä ympäri maailmaa, ja siihen saattaa liittyä eräs spoileri, joka saattaa kiinnostaa monia. Tieto ei siis spoilaa mitenkään lopputuloksia, vaan lähinnä paikkoja, missä kilpailijat ovat käyneet.
 
AT THE MOMENT AR 10- FILMING IS GOING ON ALL AROUND THE WORLD, AND THERE MAY BE ONE SPOILERTHAT INTRESTS MANY. INFORMATION IS NOT SPOILING THE FINAL RESULTS, ONLY THE PLACES WHERE THE COMPETITORS HAVE VISITED.

Spoilaa
 
Useiden nettisivujen mukaan kyseistä kautta on 16.6. kuvattu Helsingissä ja Turussa. Joidenkin lähteiden mukaan kilpailijat kävivät Helsingin Olympiastadionilla, mutta ilmeisesti kilpailijat ovat käyneet myös Turussa. Tämä ei tosin ole vielä mitään faktaa, joten todennäköisesti asiaa joudutaan odottamaan aina syksyyn asti, jolloin Amerikassa näytetään sarjan kymmenes tuotantokausi. Spoilereiden mukaan kilpailijat ovat käyneet myös mm. Mongoliassa, Mauritiuksella ja Kuwaitissa, ja tämä tieto on lähes täysin varmaa. Kaudella 10 poikkeuksellisesti kierretään maapalloa länteen päin, aikaisemminhan se on ollut toisin.
 
ACCORDING TO THE MANY WEB PAGES THE FILMING TOOK PLACE (JUNE 16TH) IN HELSINKI AND TURKU. SOME SOURCES CLAIM THAT THE COMPETITORS HAVE VISITED THE OLYMPIC STADIUM IN HELSINKI BUT EVIDENTLY HAVE VISITED ALSO TURKU. ALTHOUGH IT'S NOT A FACT YET AND APPARENTLY TO PROVE IT WE HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL SEPTEMBER WHEN THE 10TH PRODUCTION TERM WILL BE SHOWED IN USA. ACCORDING TO THE SPOILERS THE COMPETITORS HAVE ALSO VISITED MONGOLIA, MAURITUS AND KUWAIT AND FOR SURE THIS INFORMATION IS ALMOST PROVED. DURING THE 10 TH TERM THE RACE MOVES AROUND THE EARTH WESTWARDS BEFORE IT HAS BEEN THE OTHER WAY.
Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers

Cool -- thanks, Signal!

Signal, do you know if all the Finland stuff happened 6/16? It seems like a lot. Maybe we have 2 legs in Finland before they move on to Spain?

Well, they were seen in Helsinki-Vantaa airport 16th, climbing the Helsinki Olympic Stadium tower 16th, Tampere and Ylöjärvi 16th, Turku 16th, so it looks like all happened same day. But I have to say that many have said that they've seen the participants here in the weekend (17th-18th) also, but cannot confirm that. The cars were seen in the highway probably going to port of Hanko in early last week, but I think they were just returning the cars to Germany, since the cars seen had german license plates just like in Turku. As mentioned before they were supposed to go Lohja with cars from Turku and there's no sightings after Turku so they could've went anywhere,  it's possible that there was other tasks to do somewhere and maybe they had to spent a night somewhere? that's just a guess.

It does seem quite a lot for one day, but example train trip Helsinki-Tampere takes just 2 hours, Ylöjärvi is less than 20 km's from Tampere, and train from Tampere to Turku takes about 2 hours also, so it's not that much travelling.

To me it sounds very boring actually, so I really hope they went some other places.
Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: woden on June 27, 2006, 04:24:37 PM
Thanks, Signal! That clears some things up.  :tup:

ETA: Here's a possible Finland timeline...

DEPART Madagascar on June 15
Flights leave Antananarivo at 12:50am, arrive in Helsinki at either 4:25 or 7:25pm
Teams are bunched somewhere (tower at Helsinki Olympic Stadium) until morning of 6/16
Gates open at 9:00am? (according to website)
Teams climb tower (roadblock?)
Take 2 hour train trip to Tampere, arrive around noon?
Go to Ylojarvi (arrive around 12:30), do task (detour)?
Go back to Tampere train station
Take 2 hour train trip to Turku (depart around 3:00?)
Depart Turku around 5:20 (time teams were sighted)
Teams proceed to Lohja (arrive around 7:30? Signal -- 2 hours to get from Turku to Lohja?)
Do something at mines in Lohja?
Pitstop?

Seems like a lot of driving, but not unreasonable timing-wise.

Post by: gingerman28 on June 27, 2006, 10:13:23 PM
Guys, I think we have a the final city of our race!!!! :jam:

Thanks to  Coretti    over at TWOPS

"Today @ 3:37 pm

So, uh, I think I *may* have come across racers today. I do not have actual 100% confirmation that it was TAR, but this is what I saw:

~1:15 PM, 6/24/06
49th between 6th and Rock. Center, right outside one of the NBC entrances (not that they were going in).
All female African-American team (as mentioned in that thread that was linked to on the last page)
Getting out of a cab that was from Newark (which made it stand out more from the traditional NYC cabs).
Two crew with them - one boom mic operator, one cameraman.

The girls got out of the cab and asked a local for directions - the mic operator then had to get the person to sign a release and the team looked very impatient while they were waiting.

The biggest tip-off for me was that one of the crew had a yellow "K" tag, and having just re-watched Season 7, it looked exactly like the tags that everyone has on their bags.

Again, I hope this isn't a fluke, and apologize if this was inadvertently a team on some other reality show - but given the timeline I'm reading, this might just fit."

Hopes this helps.!!!

Checked and this makes sense that the girls were sent to New York directly from Helsinki as DECOYS.  Newark International Airport (EWR) lists flights from Helsinki arriving via Continental Airlines from Helskini with plane changes in either Copenhagen or Amsterdam.  Arrival times are 11:45AM and 11:50AM.  This would fit nicely with trip through customs and taxi ride (26 miles) to Rockefeller Center arriving at 1:15PM.
Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: Chateau d If on June 27, 2006, 11:40:57 PM
They bumble around Rock center for a while.  Then they hop on a plane sometime between 3 and 9 pm and fly to ??? arriving by 7 am so they can get set up at the finish mat.

What flights do this?

Okay, I found out:  Just about all of them.   :groan:

Just for the record, there are 72 flights/connecting flights from Barcelona to Newark Airport with three arriving in mid-morning, but one leaves at 3:30AM, the other two are with the same connections in Amsterdam and Copenhagen as the two flights from Helsinki to EWR.  So the girls could have, might have, left from Barcelona for Newark.

Don't they traditionally hit a US state or territory before hitting the mainland/final city for customs reasons? The direction of this race makes me think it's San Juan again also. I wonder if the the US Virgin Islands could accomplish the same thing as San Juan? San Juan to Atlanta or Houston has many non-stop flight choices.

Sups, In Race 5, they went directly from Calgary to the U.S.  That's because in some Canadian airports you can pass through U.S. Immigration and Customs at the Canadian airport.  A couple of years ago, I flew from Montreal to Chicago and when we landed it was no different than a U.S. to U.S. flight.

I've also flown from Shannon, Ireland to Atlanta.  There, you go through U.S. immigration in Ireland, but still must go through Customs in Atlanta.

Here's a link that shows the Canadian and Caribbean airports that U.S. travelers can pre clear U.S. Immigration and Customs.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._customs_preclearance (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._customs_preclearance)  (at bottom of page)


Of course, they could go to a U.S. territory in the Caribbean like in race 7.

On that note I'm betting on Antigua.

Phil was standing next to this flag at his standup for last Roadblock (he was next to Canada too).  He has said that he has never been there and wants to go.

I'd love to see them go to Antigua. I went there a year ago. It's so beautiful but St. Lucia was by far the most beautiful island I saw. According to the link they could come through the Bahamas. That would be a good choice also.

A little rampant speculation:

There's room for a leg in between Finland and Spain. The team spotted in Croatia way, way back wouldn't fit our timeline as it stands, but maybe they were a test team, like TPTB have said run the race ahead of time? So maybe Dubrovnik could fit into our race here? Might give you Googlers something to do while we're waiting for the next solid piece of info.  :js: ETA: if the racers were in Dubrovnik, they would have been there between June 18 and 20, give or take a day on the front end.

I got some new info,

Few sources have said that the race continued to Belarus after Finland. And I don't think it was just a connection point.
Oh and also there is some info about their "task" in Ylöjärvi. Obviously it was some kind of obstacle course at swamp :D
The landowner of the area is keeping his mouth shut, but nearby neighbours reported a helicopter and lots of people including security who kept the nosy ones far. The famous clue box was also seen there.

FWIW, here's something about swamps (http://www.ylojarvi.fi/english/nature/) in Ylöjärvi.

Interesting quote:
There are only few swamps in this area. One swamp called Tappisuo around Lake Kotamusjärvi and Taaborinvuori area has remained in its natural state.

AND there is a twice-weekly flight from Belarus to Barcelona arriving at 2:45PM ...this may not fit in with itinerary published time for Barcelona leg of approx 8:30PM arrival, however...

Quick check of Iberia shows Helsinki to Barcelona flights all arrive after 9:05PM

Interesting stuff, and I'm not sure whether or not she's racing.  She could be a greeter, but still, I don't think that people can make mention to their appearances on the show, racer or no.  Besides, looking back at some of the older images, this Kandice Pelletier looks like one of the racers from the all female blonde team.

Post by: Signal on July 01, 2006, 09:04:32 PM
One thing came to my mind,

Does anyone know that has the TAR production ever asked local media to shush about writing or releasing pics of the shows production?
I read that the some Finnish production company who had helped with the Race had asked the media here to not mention anything about it on behalf of the production company that produces TAR.
I'm little suspicious of that being true, since why would any tabloids or what ever agree not to publish something newsworthy, unless they were promised something.
But in the other hand, I haven't seen or heard any newspaper, tabloid, or anything mention about it, and I'm sure they are aware of TAR visiting here. I don't know how it is in other places, but here they always mention things like that. But this time nothing, oh yes except today in a local "newspaper" just basically saying "Amazing Race visited Finland?" that's all.

Anyway, like I said I'm suspicious of that being true, but interested to know if anyone has ever heard that to happen
Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: puddin on July 01, 2006, 09:24:26 PM
I'd love a scan of the article Signal  :angel:  :lol: .
I would assume TAR producers don't want us to know where they were ? also I assume the production companies along with the land owners or whatever are under contract to keep hush .
Signal this is by far the most spoiled Amazing Race in my opinion , heck we even have possibly four of the teamates names as well as the final 3 and the cast was not even released yet  .
Now if only we can find the final city :lol: ?

I hope someone else can explain better than I can about the production and contracts and all ..:yaya:

Well, I read the small few sentense long thing  in a free "newspaper" on a bus, and I don't have it.

BUT!

I have to eat some of my words of the media not here mentioning anything about it since today I read  in a weekly paper an article about TAR!
And I have scan for you, puddin :D
I also translated it. Here is the scan of article
(http://img176.imageshack.us/img176/3117/katu2ma.th.jpg) (http://img176.imageshack.us/my.php?image=katu2ma.jpg)

And here's what it says:

AMAZING RACE WAS HERE?

If the travelling route of Amazing Race would finally reach Finland, then where would
the american reality-tv makers head for? Cultural sights that we don't have, or to the
crowded national parks in Lapland? Eyewitnesses have said that production crew looking
very much like the Amazing Race was seen in the middle on June on obstacle course at swamp
in Ylöjärvi.
Foreign production crew with fire trucks and helicopters circling the sky didn't go
unnoticed by local residents, even thought that security personnel kindly prevented the curious ones
to not come too close. Contestants speaking english ran with yellow/black envelopes and cameramen
filming also a box matching the descriptions of the series clue box on a nearby road.

The area is privately owned beautiful swamp area, which in this time of year has nests of cranes
and swans. At winter the 40 hectare swamp is used for skiing. Owner of the land area is not saying anything,
and the production team is not revealing the routes of the still unseen episodes.
If Amazing Race really visited on Pirkanmaa region, it will still take years until the
episode is seen here. Latest season shown by MTV3 was season 5, but in the US the season
currently on production would be 10th.


That seems to "verify" some of the things that I mentioned before.

(edit: little fixing)

Finland has also a bit different, even weird sports. Have you ever heard about "akankanto", which is a competition of wife carrying, "saappaanheitto, in which people compete about who throws a rubber boot the longest way, "suojalkapallo," where soccer is played in a swamp, "vesijuoksu," where people have running competition in water reaching underarm, or World Championship competitions in sauna bathing? And there is more: competitions in killing mosquitoes or sitting in an anthill, swimming in a hole of frozen lake or fishing through it in the middle of winter and rally driving on a thick-iced, frozen lake. Sounds crazy? They are true, but they may be dangerous so do not attempt at home

Signal,  Thanks for all of your great work.  You've made a great contribution to the board this season.

There have been very few media stories about the Race while it's been underway.  The most comprehensive reporting of a race leg was during TAR8.  The Amazing Race teams visited the Marshall Space Center in Huntsville, Alabama.  The following moring, the Huntsville Times printed a detailed story of what happened and where the race was scheduled to continue. 

As for photographic evidence of teams during the race, the best occurrence probably happened during Race 5.  A man recevied evidence of the final 3 teams before the race was telecast in the U.S.  But the strange thing is, the task that the final three teams were photgraphed doing, never was shown on the telecast.

Here's a link to his photos.  Oh, he waited until the last week of the race being telecast to post the photos  http://www.hasbrouck.org/blog/archives/000376.html (http://www.hasbrouck.org/blog/archives/000376.html)

Also, during Race 7, a fan snapped photos of two of the final three teams in an airport on their way to the finish line.

Thanks for the link to the photos!
I knew that they of course edit a lot of the material, but I wasn't aware that they have edited out a whole task, that sucks!
I guess the most important thing for the production is to hide where they're going next or otherwise people would be waiting them at their next location. If I would've known they were coming to Finland, I would've placed my whole family to all airports to wait for them  :lol:
I'm happy they were here because when on TAR 6 they went Iceland -> Norway -> Sweden and then not come here but instead flew to Senegal made me go  (:;)

But anyway, season 10 seems to be quite intresting so I'm eagerly waitng for it!

Here's answers to everyone's questions and some back story:

Air France flight 8600 from Charles DeGalle to JKF.  Departed 6/24 @ 825am

While walking thru airport to get to the right terminal I spotted two rugged-looking young guys, a camera man and what looked like a production person.  When we got to the terminal and checked in, the agent said they had overbooked the flight and would we mind being bumped to a later flight in exchange for $150 voucher, which we agreed to.  However, the agent said we might still be on that flight and to check back later.  We went to cash our vouchers at the ticketing office and the two young guys were there with a stack of passports, which I assume is for themselves and the crew that travels with them.  When we went back to see if we were going to be on the first flight, we saw the two guys in line to check in and that's when we saw the african american women with their own cameraman.  When we were called up by an agent, my friend walked in front of the camera, asked her question and got rebuffed.  We found out that we were going to be on the first flight and after checking our baggage, left walking in front of the camera again.

From what I could tell, each team has their own camera man and sound guy. Plus there's someone that looks like a production person, but I'm not sure if there's one for every team.

It's difficult to tell from the pictures that have been posted if they are the ones I saw - the african american women for sure, the man/woman team in blue is a possibility.

Hope that covers it.

Getting out of a cab that was from Newark (which made it stand out more from the traditional NYC cabs).
The two spoilers might dovetail; I don't know much about the cab ranks at JFK but it might be possible for a Newark cab to drop somebody off at JFK and then pick up a racer there.

A few questions for you...

1.  Did you by chance get the names of the people you spoke with on the flight? (the ones who you gave directions & money to?)
2.  Did you hear or ask if Paris was just a "hub" or if they actually did any tasks in the city?
3.  I am guessing you didn't snap any pictures...if you did we would just love it!  :jumpy:

Thanks for all your posts - we look forward to more as well as the start of TAR10.

The man from the man/woman team came over to us and asked if we knew where The News Building was in New York City - he even showed us the clue.

Thanks Jlaw for all of the info.  You went over and beyond what you needed to.  I don't know why Puddin was so mean to you.  She's usually quite nice.  ;)


All, This feels like a decoy to me.  The African American women team was also reported to have shown the same clue to someone in New York City.  Racers are not supposed to show their clues and call attention to themselves.  The last time I recall this happening was in Toronto during TAR8.  Those occurrences turned out to be decoys.

i agree its totall decoy, and also smart that they would have 2 final 3 teams running to diff locations. usually they would go through hawaii,canada,alaska,or san juan when returning back to the us. so them just going from paris to jfk didnt make sence

Taxi pickup rules at JFK are very strict and restricted to licensesed NYC cabs.  Cabs must pay fee and wait in controlled queue before picking up passengers.  Doubt very much that a Newark New Jersey registered cab would be able to pick up passengers arriving at Delta Terminal in JFK.

Yes, we must agree that jlaw was on the Delta Flight 8600  from Paris on June 24.  But were the other three teams and their crews also on the same flight?

We seem to have lost the two African American women in Helsinki (no sighting of them in Barcelona). So if they were on Delta 8600 with two other teams, all three teams might be headed to New York on June 24 from Sequesterville and are acting as decoys.  One team reportedly went to the Daily News Building on East 42nd street, the other team reportedly was sighted at Rockefeller Plaza at 1:15PM (Delta 8600 arrived at 10:25AM and it took them with no checked baggage almost three hours to reach Rock Plaza? - but maybe they are real clutzes afterall and went to Newark Airport first.)
Title: Spoilers from the Middle Kingdom
Post by: Neobie on July 08, 2006, 11:31:44 AM
Signal's wonderful detective work on Finland inspired me to prowl the Chinese sites for any spoilers, and with the help of Skald_Missa on the Chinese boards, I found something!

http://forum.friends6.com/view-49420.html
http://forum.friends6.com/view-50526.html

For those who can't read Chinese, here's how the threads go...

Scott910 (posting 22 May, +8 GMT) says that he chanced upon a company the previous day looking for translators, and so he submitted his resumé. The very next morning, he got notified for an interview in the afternoon. It was only when he got there when he found out that the job was for TAR production, from the 26th to 29th of May. (Perfect timing, anyone?) After almost passing out, he signed the confidentiality agreement, and was asked a few normal questions. The next few posts (other than the obvious envy and jealosy) identify him as being from Beijing. In the post dated that very evening, Scott910 says he got a call to start work on the 27th.

In the second thread, whoami80 (posting June 16) says that his friend was hired to help out in production, and earned Y1000 (about US$125) in five days. He bets on his underwear that the race will pass through Beijing. Not much disclosure, but he does later say that (his friend said that) Phil was really tall in person.

I think we should work on the dates given to us. Since the call stated that work starts on the 27th, it probably means that the 26th stated on the hiring notice was just a window period kind-of-thing. Working for five days would mean that the production process lasts until the 31st, the day the teams are sighted (starting?) in Ulan Bator. Perfect, with the teams departing Seattle on the 27th (arriving in Beijing on the morning of the 29th, Beijing is 16 hours ahead). We've seen from the Barcelona spoiler that production begins the day before the teams arrive, so that should give us the 29th, 30th and the 31st in China, enough time for a leg. Plus, how much production would be needed if the teams were just blasting through China without tasks?

On a side note, does anyone have any flight information for the 'United flight to Bejing via Tokyo'? United doesn't even serve Tokyo to Beijing.

The only one I'm not sure about is the picture in the right margin. (Is that Michelle and Monica from TAR9?)

The other images, mostly recycled from TAR9, are (clockwise)...

1. Red Square, Moscow, Russia
2. ICE Train, Stuttgart, Germany
3. Mosque and camels, Oman
4. Graphic used since TAR1, not actual film footage
5. Temple and Mount Fuji, Japan (actually used in a TAR2 poster)
6. No idea
7. Diving with the Voladores, Mexico City, Mexico TAR3
8. Ray and Yolanda, TAR9
9. Climbing Jacaré Waterfall, Brotas, Brazil
10. Big cat (cheetah? leopard?), Botswana, TAR7

And in the bottom right hand corner...

1. Pyramids and Sphinx, Giza, Egypt
2. Red Square, Moscow, Russia
3. Ko Kret, Bangkok, Thailand

Did this poster come up before the filming of TAR10?

I may be just a born sceptic, but would TAR10 repeat a task exactly as the one they first had in TAR1 (spot the TAR flag on the Arc de Trioumph from the observation deck.)  Also seems to me that there are too, too many tourists types milling around. 

Could this be the decoy of all DECOYS?  Could these also be the three teams that are spotted in the Paris to New York flight on June 24?

Just seems to be much to open to the public to be a true TAR event.

Plus - how many of the places who ususally take bets on this race will put it out there knowing that we possibly know the final 3 teams? :wine:  :tup:

Post by: puddin on July 14, 2006, 03:29:17 PM
I don't know guys , i'm thinking its too much of a conicidence to be decoys . TPTB are getting sloppy ?

sightings drop off in Finland , here we have the African American team ,pictures on the train show Tyler & James as well as the Beauty Queens . There is mention of a Chinese looking team ( our Asians I assume ) and a Couple .
Barcelona , no sightings just some details of the challenge /tomato's .
This leaves our final 5 right ? :
Couple
African American team  
Asian Team
Pageant Gals
James & Tyler  

Then we get 3 solid spoilers of :
the African Ameican team ( Lynn & Karlyn )
the Couple ( unknown names )
the male team ( James /Tyler )


Signal   (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8610.275) checks in with more details!

Here's some pics in a train (http://viltsu.net/gallery/v/Yhteiset/Matkat/Turku2006/) from Tampere to Turku 
I heard from a reliable source that some woman had talked with one couple in the train and the couple said that they had flown from Madagascar to Helsinki and from Helsinki to Tampere and Ylöjärvi and then they had to travel with a train to Turku where they must find the cars and drive to quarry mines in Lohja.

I've read and heard about people seeing the contestants climbing in the Olympic Stadium's tower in Helsinki, and Phil was spotted in a park/restaurant in Helsinki, wich could also be true.
"Yes, they were also in Tampere week ago friday (june 16th), or actually Ylöjärvi, close to my home. I heard about it from my aunt who drives a taxi, and she had taken one couple from Tampere train station to Ylöjärvi and back. They were hurrying to catch the train to Turku. My aunt was first a bit shocked when few dark skinned americans (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=0010.jpg) passed others in the queue and jumped to the car with a man sitting on the front seat who had a  huge camera"
There was another sighting at the Helsinki train station june 16th. A "chinese" looking couple  (http://s18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/?action=view&current=0011.jpg) was seen running in the station with a camera man, and they had two other couples following them

I'm trying to sort through the exif data but it's a little confusing. At least two different cameras were used.
Quote from: One
It was Friday, 23 June, around 9 to 11 am..
The metadata is posted at 3-5 p.m., but people traveling usually don't reset their cameras. There's enough shadows for Chateau if need be.
And where's the geezer team? I want representation!  {{{}  ;D

 :waves: There's a 6-hour difference between the two cities, so it synchs up nicely. Even without adjusting, you can still learn a few things: some teams, for example, are almost an hour behind others leaving the bag drop.

23 June, 9.00am to 11.00am. That doesn't leave the teams much time to travel from Barcelona does it? The Barcelona Pit Stop catering is offered from 11.30am to 4.00pm the previous day, which means that teams will most likely depart from 11.30pm on the 22nd until 4.00am on the 23rd.

Now the earliest flight I can find on Air France (horrible grappling with both French and Spanish) is AF2349 leaving at 7.05am and arriving at 9.00am. Iberia offers IB4422 leaving at 7.25am and arriving at 9.05am, but at Orly Airport.

(http://img149.imageshack.us/img149/4461/iberiaflightsbarcelonaparisxg8.jpg)

Orly is 6km from the city centre, Charles de Gaulle 26km. By taxi, travelling time is at least 45 minutes on the A1 expressway, and that is during off-peak hours. Getting to the Eiffel Tower quickly during Friday morning rush hour? I don't think so.

Train services aren't that much more promising. Both airports require a change of train (from Line B to C, and Orly requires an extra light-rail shuttle) to get to the Eiffel tower, and a journey from either airport takes about 50 minutes. No idea how they'd be able to make it, unless they shorten the Pit Stop duration. Now if the just-eliminated team gets on a flight to Paris to join other Sequester II teams though...



Now for the tower itself. I agree with gingerman28 that this looks like an exact repetition: climbing up the Eiffel Tower on foot. The pictures were taken on the second platform, with the first (lowest) platform (http://www.clt.astate.edu/wallen/digits/eiffel/tower03.jpg) enclosed, and the third platform (http://www.clt.astate.edu/wallen/digits/eiffel/tower04.jpg) using squarish netting instead of diagonal ones. I also found this (http://photos.pkicentral.com/albums/userpics/10001/IMG_2585.jpg) but I have no idea where it belongs, but the lower level of the second platform (http://www.painetworks.com/photos/ih/ih1319.JPG) seems to fit nicely. And guess what? One is only allowed to climb on foot up to the second platform. Guess the TAR producers ran out of ideas! (I really really hope this is a decoy though.)

These teams in Paris and NYC CAN'T be decoys. Here's why. There are 5 teams spotted in Finland -- Tyler/James, Lynn/Karlyn, the brunette couple, the Asian couple, and the blonde girls. This is the 10th leg of the race, so these are probably the only teams left. Just a couple legs later, we have 3 teams spotted in Paris -- Tyler/James, Lynn/Karyln, and the brunette couple. There are simply NOT ENOUGH teams left in the race at this stage to send these 3 teams as decoys. The Asian team and the blonde girls would be the only teams left. Make sense? Puddin called it - TBTB just put the last leg wide out in the open.

Wow it does look like a repeat of season one's 2cd episode.  They sure as hell better not end up at the arc.

In the first it was roadblock, for spotting the pit stop.

I wonder can they do stunts of the tower, bungee anything like that?) or if its similar spot the pit stop.  If that is the case, I hope the pit stop is Notre Dame just to kill Lenny and Karin.

Incase you were sleeping , look here  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8798.msg133652#msg133652)
The 12 teams will be put to the test right away, executive producers Bertram Van Munster and Jonathan Littman say. Instead of "easing in" to the competition by sending the teams to Europe or South America first, the teams will first head to China after starting in Seattle.
The racers will also travel to Mongolia, Kuwait, Vietnam and Madagascar. In all, the race will cover some 40,000 miles in 30 days.

This race will hit 13 countries, including Vietnam, Kuwait, Mongolia and Madagascar, CBS announced Saturday to television critics gathered in California for fall previews.

Here's a quick update, with USA, China, Mongolia, New Zealand, Vietnam, Kuwait, Mauritius, Madagascar, Finland, Spain and France as 11 of the 13 countries. One missing country goes in between Vietnam and Kuwait, the other between Finland and Spain (probably Belarus then).

Or try this link if the image doesn't load. Thanks Kogs! http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/2782/tar10spoilermapte3.jpg

The problem kicks in with the mileage count. I've connected each city in the spoilers, mostly joining airport to airport, skipping over even connection points such as Tokyo and Singapore, and have arrived at 39686 miles. TAR has never managed to underestimate its mileage count (it usually exceeds a detailed count by thousands of miles), and we only have 314 miles to fit in two countries along with all the attractions that teams have to pass by. Is this actually possible, or is New Zealand to Singapore part of the Asian race?

12 teams means 12 legs, right? with 3 NEL and 9 Philiminations leaving 3 teams for the final leg from Paris back to the USofA.

If we are correct that the race begins in Seattle on May 27 and it lasts "less than 30 days" than the spotting of three teams on the flight from Paris to New York on June 24 makes sense.  But are these the three final teams or the teams that were Philimated 7th, 8th, and 9th and have been enjoying life in sequesterville??

I'm pretty sure that the clue box is positioned at the top level of the Eiffel Tower.  Just going by memory.  It's kind of squishy up there.  Those rivited windows in the shots are the windows into Gustave Eiffel 's office  (http://www.tour-eiffel.fr/teiffel/uk/pratique/a_voir/page/sommet.html) which is located at the third level.

From this Google Earth view ot the Tower you can see that the second level platform is very spacious  Lots of people!

I think you are right about the upper level.  Didn't one of the spoilers say it was the upper level?

Also when reviewing season one we had one team go to the upper level (instead of the 2cd level) and it matches as far as space is concerned.

Post by: Chateau d If on July 16, 2006, 04:32:04 PM
This picture was taken between 9:14 and 9:19 am on June 23rd, 2006.

I've got good accuracy with this one because they are located at the North Leg of the tower (where Gustave's Statue is located).  And the Eiffel Tower is oriented exactly North/South/East/West in terms of its leg positions (as near as I can tell from Google Earth, and knowing the French zeal for perfection I suspect that it is exact).  With that pinpoint of orientation and the the way the shadow crosses the rounded surface almost exactly at the corner (a little before, and being a slanted curve, you have to look at the equatorial position) I peg the solar azimuth at 89 plus or minus half a degree.

This all argees quite nicely with the Exif data of the shots:  This Nikon shot has a time stamp of 15:17:31while the Canon shot Karlyn & Lynn has a timestamp of 16:16:54.  But Both shots were taken within seconds of each other.  So they just have a daylight saving time mismatch in addition to their timezone offset of six hours as noted by Slowhatch.

23 June, 9.00am to 11.00am. That doesn't leave the teams much time to travel from Barcelona does it? The Barcelona Pit Stop catering is offered from 11.30am to 4.00pm the previous day, which means that teams will most likely depart from 11.30pm on the 22nd until 4.00am on the 23rd.

If they try something different and make a 6.5 hr drive to Marseille  (http://www.google.com/maps?saddr=Barcelona,+Spain+%4041.387917,2.169919&daddr=marseille,+france&f=li&hl=en&cid=&ie=UTF8&om=1) they can catch lots of early morning flights to Paris.

Seattle was the starting point for the latest season of CBS's "The Amazing Race." Teams include (left to right, front row) Vipul and Arti, Kellie and Jamie, Lyn and Karlyn, Erwin and Godwin, Kimberly and Rob, Sarah and Peter (left to right, back row) Tyler and James, Duke and Lauren, Tom and Terry, Mary and David, Dustin and Kandice and Bilal and Sa'eed.

Diversity is the word as 'Amazing Race 10' starts in Seattle
Monday, July 17, 2006
It was a rainy May morning when 13 teams of people charged down the hill in Seattle's Gas Works Park -- the official start of the 10th edition of CBS' reality show "The Amazing Race."
It was the beginning of a five-week journey around the world -- a journey that has now been completed and whose winner has been decided, but one not everyone would finish. At most stops along the way, one team would be eliminated until only three remained. The first pair to finish the show's final segment would split $1 million. 
Although the race began two months ago, it was only Sunday that the network let go of what had been a carefully guarded secret -- the race starts in Seattle.
As in seasons before, the winning team would need "the right combination of brains, brawn and teamwork," as stated by the show's host, Phil Keoghan, during last season's premiere in Denver.
But when Keoghan gave his signature bolero-inspired wave in Seattle, a signal for the race to begin, there was something different about the pairs that dashed toward the SUVs at the bottom of the hill: In different ways, each was a tribute to Hollywood's interpretation of diversity.
Some teams were predictable. There was the obligatory pair of beauty queens (and a pair of attractive college cheerleaders as a bonus), the father-daughter duo and the married couple.
But there was also a pair of single mothers, a woman with a prosthetic leg and her motivational-speaker friend, a coal miner husband and his wife, a gay couple and a pair of Muslim cousins.
Executive producer Bertram van Munster, who co-created the show with his partner, Elise Doganieri, took a break from filming atop Gas Works Park hill to comment on the many societal subgroups represented.
"We have a very diverse cast," said van Munster, clad in a green plastic poncho to help ward off the rain. "It's almost a true representation of what America is all about."
Summing up America with only 26 people might seem like a daunting job, but van Munster is a man who thinks big. Everything about the show is big, including its worldwide backdrop and grand scenery, and it was only a matter of time before the show came back to Seattle.
In 2002, the show's third season ended in Seattle, also at Gas Works Park.
"I've been coming to Seattle for many years for different projects," said van Munster, who used to be a cameraman for "Cops," the long-running Fox series. "Most people in the film industry travel a lot."
Van Munster took every opportunity to capitalize on signature features of the Northwest while filming this season's premiere.
The contestants arrived on seaplanes, and a fireboat shot arcs of water out of Lake Union in front of a misty city skyline.
Van Munster surveyed the scene from the top of the hill.
"Who is communicating with the fireboat?"
"Brittany is," said a drenched crew member.
"Can you tell them it looks fantastic?"
Maybe the rain on the lens did make filming a little difficult, and maybe more than one crew member did slip and fall on the wet grass, but "The Amazing Race" isn't a show for the faint of heart.
Both the crew and contestants had their work cut out for them, moving westward out of Seattle to 13 countries, among them China, Mongolia, Vietnam, Kuwait and Madagascar, logging more than 40,000 miles in about a month's time.
"We race around the world in five weeks," said Van Munster. "It is really tough."
"The Amazing Race" premiered in 2002, but since it does two editions a year this latest is considered the 10th "season."
When it returns in the fall, on a date to be determined, the show will air on a new day and at a new time -- Sundays at 8 p.m. -- on KIRO/7.

Wow, lots of good stuff here but more analysis is still needed.  Just a couple of observations.

I am still uncomfortable that the Race would go directly from Paris to the final destination city in the U.S.  Depending upon the number of passengers on JLaw's flight, it could take up to hour before the first passengers passed through Customs and Immigration until the last passengers did.  That would kill the momentum of the race and also give a great advantage to the first team that made it through.  That is way the Race has always gone from somewhere in the U.S., Puerto Rico, or Canada to the final destination in order to negate those problems.

The TWoP spoiler about seeing the African-American team arrive at the News Building stated that the Taxi Cab came from Newark.  JLaw's flight arrived at JFK in New York.  Anyone have any thoughts on this?

IIRC newark cabs are only aloud to be with the passengers they had when they came from newark. they may not run and pickup any1 new inside nyc, and viseversa at newark. at least thats what i remeber when the guy at the mariott marquee in nyc told me.

Question -- I can't remember any legs in the race where they've had multiple connections. Can someone help with this? Here's why I'm wondering. A team was spotted on a plane from Queenstown to Auckland en route to Singapore. If Singapore was not the end destination, it would mean multiple connections, which I don't remember the Race doing in the past.

EP6: Singapore to North Vietnam
DATES: June 7-8, 2006
EV: North Vietnam cited in statement from producers
TASKS: UNKNOWN
TEAMS: NEL? 7 left after episode
      
EP7: North Vietnam to Kuwait City, Kuwait

EV: Teams spotted in airport
TASKS: Drive to Kuwait Towers
TEAMS: 7 left at START of episode (Peter/Sarah, Erwin/Godwin, Dustin/Kandace, Lynn/Karlyn, Tyler/James, David/Mary, Rob/Kim), 6 left at END of episode (Peter/Sarah, Erwin/Godwin, Dustin/Kandace, Lynn/Karlyn, Tyler/James, Rob/Kim – David/Mary eliminated?)



One more thing -- what if NYC is on the route but is not the end city? What if they clear customs, do a task or two there, and then fly on to another US city for the end, say, on June 25? I think this would still fit in with when people checked in to their Myspace sites. This would clear up the issue of teams getting too far apart at customs for the finish. It would be different than typical TAR form to have two US stops at the end, but who knows...

Can we review the credibility of the New Zealand spoilers, and make sure it's not the TAR: Asia? There's no way we can keep within 40 000 miles if we head down there (see my previous post).

Why are you guys sure that the female team who make it to the top 6 is Dustin & Kandice?????

I always feel that they are kellie and jamie after I saw the video tape from Mauritius because of their height  ??? ???

Whew! Taking some heat for "North Vietnam!"  :lol: I think I pulled that straight from some press release, and yep, Neobie -- Hanoi was confirmed by CBS' latest announcement.

Hollaback, I think the Dustin/Kandace guess is based mostly on the "two blondes" descriptions we keep getting.

I think mwooden means Northern Vietnam ;D, since the south and central regions have already been covered in TAR3. My guesses? Hanoi (TAR3 only visited the airport), Halong Bay (sort of like Krabi) or Sapa (hill tribes).

Can we review the credibility of the New Zealand spoilers, and make sure it's not the TAR: Asia? There's no way we can keep within 40 000 miles if we head down there (see my previous post).

Neobie, its very credible. they do go down there.
Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: woden on July 17, 2006, 11:01:21 AM
Neobie, as for NZ, there were a couple supposed sightings (at a ferry, on a plane), rumors of a field being rented for TAR use, etc. The most trusted source seemed to be MissWendyWings at Sucks, who hinted at use of a naval base and old war tunnels in Devonport. I'll agree -- NZ seems the least confirmed of any of the legs.

However, the distances thrown around by CBS tend to vary quite a bit -- last year, we heard anywhere from 50-70 thousand miles before the final number, which I think was 59,000. Wouldn't be surprised if we hear a different mileage estimate down the line...

TAR10 looks to be a young persons' game.  Where is AARP?  One player just makes it at 52. Then we have one person in the 40s, and 11 each in their 20s and 30s.  But it does look like a tough course this time, so perhaps they made a point of picking younger, fitter people to fill out the teams.  But, of course, we have not one but two good-lookin babe teams as eye  :-[ candy.

From one of the articles Puddin posted:

"The show is continuing to grow," Keoghan said. "It is more popular internationally nine seasons in than it was in season one. It’s playing in China. It did a 57 share in Australia on its final episode. It’s been a No. 1 show in Singapore."

Maybe Singapore is in our race? Never hurts to visit countries that love your show -- China is on this year's circuit & they threw Australia a bone last year...

Puddin, I think you need to correct the list of teams present at Kuwait.  Because k.thekuwait did mention the presence of a woman with a prostethic leg.  So that would mean Peter & Sarah make it there.  And so that means there were at least seven teams entering Kuwait.

The shots of Lyn & Karlyn getting their backpacks was taken about 50 minutes beforthe shots of James & Tyler getting their clue up in the tower.  I think that makes the boys at least a full hour behind the other two teams.  I bet they get mugged at the end of the Paris leg.
Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: moox03 on July 17, 2006, 09:50:36 PM
James and Tyler weren't officially seen, as far as we know, in Kuwait, but they had to have been there. I don't recall, also, if Izabela saw them in Mauritius.

Also -- there seems to be a person (woman?) with long hair talking to either Erwin or Godwin in Kuwait... could this be Arti? I'm thinking no, because the girl's skin looks too light.

Yes, by route it may mean parade. When I looked up the giants earlier I read they have giant parades. Here is a link with a video for one in Bilbao. Could be the teams have to "be" one of the giants for a part of the route. Sounds like fun!

For mwooden --

I think one thing on your episode listing need to be changed, because the Conleys were seen in Kuwait. Also, Izabela claimed to see a "dorky" couple, and this could have been the Conleys -- I would say that they're the dorkiest for what we've got.

Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: woden on July 19, 2006, 08:57:22 AM
David/Mary are definitely in Kuwait, but I'm still guessing they get eliminated at the END of that leg. Here's what Izabela said about the "dorky" team...

Team 4: m/f asian male and geeky female but not 100% sure as they were not sitting together and by geeky i mean she reminded me of lori in her stance/appearance and not playing up the the cameras as the first 3 teams. She sat on the sun bed under a tree and just waited quietly on spoke to the black female for a short time.

I'm guessing from her vantage point she mistook Godwin as a female because of the long hair -- just like we did for a while in the Kuwait photos.

So I'm stickin' by my guess that the Conleys are eliminated before Mauritius.  ;) No sign of them in Izabela's video.

My daughter just got back from Raging Waters in Irvine California!  She
says she spotted a "clue box", and then saw a camera crew following
several couples around.  She asked one of the cameramen, and they told
her that it was amazing race 10 filming.

She said they even filmed her saying "Amazing race rocks!"!  Would be
awesome if they used that seg!

My wife also asked what it was, and the management was very tight lipped
about the whole thing.

Looking forward to amazing race 10!

The Russian jeeps (http://www.russian-jeep.ru/) that Charlie Five Snouts mentioned can be seen in the background (Charlie would probably know the location, but I wouldn't fork over a poster's ID even if I knew). Wherever it is, it's next to a hill, has a large parking lot (for tourists?), and (I'm guessing) not too far from UB. You could read the exif if the data were available, but it would probably just say June 1st anyway.

It doesn't appear to be the big 3:Gandan, Choijin, or Bogd Khan. This travel site (http://www.legendtour.ru/eng/mongolia/r2201.shtml) works OK as a portal; it has photos, descriptions of local attractions, rail/flight timetables, etc. The big temples in town (it is a temple/monastery? Could it be something different?) are all on flat ground--no hills nearby. If it's near UB it should be available to GE, but I haven't spotted it yet.

Did some checking, and Choijin is only one block south of the main square in the middle of UB.  Bogd Khaan is said to be approx. 2 km south, closer to the mountains on UB's south side.  I suspect anyone looking on Google Earth try the southern part of UB, as the pix of Phil & greeter may be looking "south".  Just a guess.

Is this the First pit stop or Second? Isn't the First pit stop in China?  If they go through China and then on to Mongolia all in one leg, it sure would be a killer diller of a first show.

Van Munster took every opportunity to capitalize on signature features of the Northwest while filming this season's premiere.
The contestants arrived on seaplanes, and a fireboat shot arcs of water out of Lake Union in front of a misty city skyline.
Van Munster surveyed the scene from the top of the hill.
"Who is communicating with the fireboat?"
"Brittany is," said a drenched crew member.

Seattle fireboats. Maybe 2 teams aboard per boat.

Just so much info being posted, I could miss all 13 eps and still know what happens when.

But still, which team is going to be the bitchiest?  Which team is going to fight the most?  Which team is going to be all lovey-dovey? Which team is going to hit on whom? Which team is going to be so proud of its weakest member?  Which team is just not going to have a clue about what is going on?  Which team will put octane gasoline in a diesel engine?  Which team won't be able to stick shift a car? Which team won't be able to read a map?  And so it goes.

So, I guess there still is a lot to learn.

Example : If Tyler/James Lyn/Karlyn Rob/Kim are all decoys then I suppose Dustin/Kandy  & ChoBro's are the final 2 teams what happened to the 3rd team !? See it makes no sense at all   :naughtyd:
Dustin/Kandice and Tyler/James were in the photos. The descriptions mention Erwin/Godwin, Lynn/Karlyn and a couple. Unless I have missed something, I haven't seen any clear evidence of that couple being Rob and Kim, apart from the assumptions of some posters based on the Paris photos.

We have 6 teams in Mauritius (based on there being 7 in Kuwait) of which 5 were seen. It is possible that the unseen team in Mauritius (the Conleys or Peter/Sarah) was the m/f team in Finland, rather than Rob/Kim, which would lead to Paris/New York being a decoy run.

Sorry if I appear to be too sceptical for your liking.

I don't know something different. It is pure speculation on my part. I don't believe that the couple seen in Finland was actually identified as Rob and Kim. I am applying a reverse assumpion that they were not this couple. This leads to Lynn/Karlyn and Tyler/James being eliminated in Finland and Belarus, with the last 3 eliminated teams being sent on decoy duty in Paris and New York, leaving a final 3 of Erwin/Godwin, Dustin/Kandice and whichever team was unseen in Mauritius (either Peter/Sarah or the Conleys).

Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: Neobie on August 12, 2006, 02:02:03 AM
I hereby declare myself completely confused.

(http://img135.imageshack.us/img135/5020/confusionwr1.th.jpg) (http://img135.imageshack.us/my.php?image=confusionwr1.jpg)

Unless the teams keep changing clothes every five minutes, or unless the cameramen and soundmen like to trail unsuspecting locals, I can count a total of FIVE (?!!) teams at the Eiffel Tower.

Let's start with the easy ones. There's no doubting that Tyler and James are on the tower, so let's just take note of the clothing of the production staff.

Tyler
Colourful horizontal stripes T-shirt
Short khaki pants
James
Green T-shirt
Long grey pants

Camera Guy
Black shirt
Jeans
Sound Guy
Grey T-shirt
Black long pants
Red jacket wrapped around waist

The following are probably staff assigned to the specific location and do not follow teams around.

Camcorder Guy
Grey shirt
Black shorts
Photographer
Grey T-shirt
Light grey long pants
Big-Shot #1
Black shirt
Grey pants
Wears 'Vietnam' fisherman's hat
Big-Shot #2
Bald-ish and tall
Blue T-shirt
White long pants

We know Rob and Kimberly are around as well, and their backpacks match pre-race photos, so we know they weren't mugged. The cameraman behind them, though, is strangely filming neither team in the area. (Lynn and Karlyn are just behind, at the leg of the tower.)

Rob
Blue T-shirt
Pants up to knee
Kimberly
Yellow tank-top
Black pants down to shin

Unknown Cameraman
Blue T-shirt, with light blue on sides
Olive long pants

And just trailing are Lynn and Karlyn...

Lynn
Black jacket and black pants
Underneath is a neon yellow T-shirt
Karlyn
Red jacket
Long black pants

Now on to the mysterious part... on the road running alongside the Champ de Mars, there's another set of four people: one cameraman, one soundman, and a couple I don't recognize. Judging by the woman's hair (frizzly), could this be David and Mary? One problem is that I can't match the backpacks, so this could mean that the team (if it is one) has been mugged. Note that the guy of the couple is wearing a different light blue shirt from the unknown cameraman mentioned earlier.

David?
Light blue shirt
Light blue backpack
Grey pants up to shin
Mary?
Sunglasses
Black shirt
Jeans

Camera Guy
Black T-shirt
Jeans
Sound Guy
Small blue/grey Wilson day pack
Blue jacket
Grey pants

But that's not all! There's also a Susan (TAR7) lookalike holding a CLUE ENVELOPE asking for directions, next to a man with a large backpack. This probably isn't one of the people covered above, as she is wearing track pants. Could this be another team? There's no cameraman in sight though.

Susan?
Black top
Sunglasses
Black track pants
Partner?
Black T-shirt
Khaki pants

What do you guys make of this?

Wake up everyone; no action here for awhile - is everyone watching BB?  And no one, I mean no one, is following TH (although I don't blame them for that)

BUT, does the evidence point to the three teams on the Eiffle Tower and on the flight to New York, as being DECOYS as some of us have speculated from the beginning???  The coverage in Paris just seems too open and too public to be for real.

AND, do we have to wait until Finland to get the final proof?
Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: valor boreal on August 13, 2006, 11:16:28 PM
We should get the final proof of whether Paris is a decoy run or not in Madagascar, or possibly the preceding leg in Mauritius.

Not much help with the gate photo, though (go here (http://kinabaloo.com/forbidden_city.html) and click "doorways" on the right side); the red/yellow dot is a common style. This page (http://kinabaloo.com/great_wall.html) lists the wall sites closest to Beijing (Badaling is probably the closest, but if they're driving to Mongolia--I still have doubts--then the wall section near the road to the border would be appropriate). Simatai even has a zipline!  ;D

jlaw writes  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,8610.0.html) The man from the man/woman team came over to us and asked if we knew where The News Building was in New York City - he even showed us the clue

so I saw that I saved this in my favorites and thought maybe this globe ties in somehow .
Can't help thinking that if TAR10 starts in Seattle where TAR3 finished ....as well as TAR10 going to Beijing , doing the same type tasks as TAR 1 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amazing_Race_1) that maybe just maybe the final leg can be Flushing Park where TAR1 ended (http://www.cbs.com/primetime/amazing_race/) . Like maybe the Globe leads them to the park or something ?


Daily News Building

EARTH GLOBE (http://www.naturalhistorymag.com/master.html?http://www.naturalhistorymag.com/city_of_stars/04_daily_news.html)
Daily News Building
220 East 42nd Street
Manhattan
 
The lobby of the building that until 1995 was the home of the Daily News features an oversize, rotating, tilted globe of Earth, with oceans, prevailing ocean currents, continents, and nations delineated. The sphere sits in an illuminated, fenced-off basin surrounded by a tiled compass rose embedded in the floor, providing the cardinal direction and mileage to various cities around the world.

The last couple of TARs have thrown a puzzle at the racers right before the finish line. If the Daily News spoiler holds true, I thought the racers might be asked to do something with the globe, but the pictures I've found (source (http://www.rion.nu/v5/archive/000300.php)) make that unlikely; I doubt anyone is allowed inside the illuminated pit. (Every time I see the Flushing Meadows TAR photo, I think of Men in Black  :lol:)

The last couple of AR's have ended in some secluded park so the race prolly didnt end in Manhattan it most likly left the city to a park in Brooklyn or Queens or maybe a beach in Coney Island, or Queens, or Brooklyn.  So they will prolly have a puzzle set up there.  Trust me being from New York i was on the look out at the end of June and saw nothing in Breezy Point or Fort Titlden[I was kind of hopeing I would have though]

New Zealand is NOT a continent.  Australia is, but not New Zealand.  So they can go there, which we are pretty sure they do, and not make a visit to a fifth continent.

And we have another gap between Finland and Barcelona and five days unaccounted for.

In the past, have they counted NA as a continent if they only travel to US locations? Either way, I think we have some solid info on NZ (Asian team spotted on plane, MissWendyWings' testimony on Sucks). The gap between Mongolia (5/31) and New Zealand (6/2) isn't big enough for another leg (Vietnam) in between. It's big enough for a 36 hour pitstop, though.

Sorry, Rob, check your globe or atlas and you will see that the two major islands which make up the country of New Zealand are many miles to the East of the continent of Australia.  They are considered to be part of Oceania which is not a continent, but includes all the Pacific Islands which are located in the South Pacific.  Japan, Indonesia, and the Philippines which are also Islands are considered part of Asia.
Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: Neobie on September 14, 2006, 11:58:38 AM
Just for the record on what TPTB counts as 'countries' and 'continents'...

TAR1: "9 countries, 4 continents and 35 000 miles"
North America (United States), Africa (S Africa, Zambia, Tunisia), Europe (France, Italy), Asia (India, Thailand, China)
The teams visited Alaska. Botswana, which the teams drove through to get to S Africa from Zambia, was not counted.

TAR2: "5 continents, 8 countries and 52 000 miles"
North America (United States), South America (Brazil), Africa (S Africa, Namibia), Asia (Thailand, China), Australia (Australia, New Zealand)
The teams visited Hawaii and Alaska.

TAR3: "4 continents, 13 countries, 41 000 miles"
North America (United States, Mexico), Europe (United Kingdom, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland), Africa (Morocco), Asia (Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam)
The teams visited Hawaii. Spain, which was a drive-thru, was counted. But does this only make 12 countries?

TAR4: "4 continents, 24 cities, 44 000 miles"
North America, Europe, Asia, Australia
No number of countries listed.

TAR5: "6 continents, 11 countries, 72 000 miles"
North America (Canada), South America (Uruguay, Argentina), Europe (Russia), Africa (Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania), Asia (UAE, India, Philippines), Australia (New Zealand)
United States was not counted. Alternatively, the country 'left out' could be Kenya, where there was only a stop-over (but a sign-up counter for flights to Kilimanjaro). New Zealand was counted as part of a continent.

TAR6: "4 continents, 24 cities, more than 40 000 miles"
North America, Europe, Africa, Asia
No number of countries listed.

TAR7: "5 continents, 25 cities, over 40 000 miles"
North America, South America, Africa, Asia, Europe
No number of countries listed.

TAR8: "25 days, 50 cities, and more than 600 consecutive hours together as a family"
No comment.

TAR9: 5 continents, 9 countries, more than 59 000 miles"
North America, South America (Brazil), Europe (Russia, Germany, Italy, Greece), Asia (Oman, Thailand, Japan), Australia (Australia)
The've kept North America as a continent, but did not count the US as a country, even though Alaska was visited. This could be due to the flag task at the end, which might have caused confusion for the viewer if '10 countries' was announced.

So in conclusion, New Zealand is accepted as part of Australia/Australasia/Oceania the continent, and the United States is not counted unless Hawaii or Alaska is visited (except in TAR9). Just a little repeat: the mileage WAY exceeds 40 000 miles if New Zealand is added; could the spoilers have been TAR: Asia? I know Kogs is pretty confident about New Zealand as a stop (just as I know Puddin is sure Paris is not a decoy), do you mind elaborating on what you know?

Good point, Neobie.  That's the way I'm thinking, baring any new info.  TAR Asia was racing at about the same time as TAR10.  NZ would be a logical stop for TAR Asia, as TAR has already been there quite a few times.  As for the sighting of an "Asian looking" racer in NZ.  Well, duh, all of the TAR Asia racers are Asian.  That would imply that the "near miss" of the two shows might have happened on the Asian continent.  But it's just wild speculation at this point.  Where is that "first" real TAR10 preview?  Hoping it shows during Survivor tonight.

Those mileage estimates vary quite a bit from the start of the season to the end -- last year, CBS gave numbers ranging from 50,000 to 70,000 miles in press releases before settling on 59,000 at the end.

I'm with Kogs -- I'm confident TAR is back in NZ this year -- looking at our last itinerary on p. 1 on this thread, I don't see why it would be tight for them to get there.

Dustin (l.) and Kandice in a 'roadblock challenge' in Vietnam in 'The Amazing Race.

'Race' stays right on pace
 
10th edition kicks off Sun.


THE AMAZING RACE. Sunday, 8:30 p.m. CBS
As "The Amazing Race" plunges into the most competitive night on prime-time television, it has this on its side: It has kept its edge where other, trendier shows - including some seen on Sundays - have softened.

This weekend's 90-minute kickoff of the new season keeps the show's agreeably fast pace and, more important, has assembled another lively cast.

If you don't want to root for a pair of cheerleaders, the male models, the gay couple or two inner-city single moms, you can root for the team of robed and bearded Muslims from Cleveland or Sarah Reinertsen, who has a metal leg.

Watching Reinertsen battle to climb her way up the Great Wall of China, a task that requires balance much more easily achieved with two regular legs, is one of those rare moments on "reality" shows that transcends its setup.

It makes the viewer want to stop and watch - not just because there's an image on a screen, but because you sense there's a lot more going on there than a TV moment.

This race, the 10th in the series, brings a dozen teams to Seattle, where they're sent to Beijing on the first leg of a trip around the world.

The first team to get back, as usual, will win a million bucks.

As in the past, this race starts with camaraderie and hail-fellow-well-met competition.

Naturally, the producers and much of the audience expect and hope things will take an adversarial turn.

But meanwhile, many of the dramas are charmingly small, like blissful couples turning snippy when they can't agree on whether to get off the interstate and try to find an alternative route to the airport.

Because part of the competition involves physical challenges, like climbing up the wall, viewers will quickly figure that contestants who are younger and in better shape, like male models Tyler Denk and James Branaman, may have an advantage over, say, 52-year-old Duke Marcoccio or other entrants who look to be in less than Parris Island fighting shape.

But winning the race also requires luck, timing and even small bursts of thinking, among other built-in equalizers.

Marcoccio, for instance, doesn't flinch when one of the challenges in Beijing is to eat a plate of fish eyes.

That sort of yuck moment is mandatory in the "reality TV" biz. Still, the new "Amazing Race" rises above other shows in its sometimes dubious genre because its most interesting moments are the small human ones, not the ones manufactured for TV.

That's a modest distinction, but a valuable one, and it should enable the new "Amazing Race" crew to keep up with the rest of the Sunday night field.

Their irregular hole spacings suggest vegetable matter to me.  The device in the background suggests a "hand press" of some kind.  Think maybe they have to squeeze the "things" to extract juice, or something.  Maybe Neobie can enlighten us on Asian food.

The only thing that I can think of that's a vegetable, this thick and has so many holes is the banana stalk...

(http://ko-it.cocolog-nifty.com/natural_fiber/images/banana-stalk.jpg)

From Britannica (http://www.britannica.com/eb/article-52704): "There are many plantations of banana and other fruit trees, coconut, and sugarcane, most of them found in the Mekong River delta and the southern terrace regions." Hanoi's nowhere near the southern tropics though...

From Fruits of Vietnam (http://www.fao.org/docrep/008/ad523e/ad523e05.htm): "It is the most important traditional fruit of Vietnam, both in terms of historical and economic significance. Commercial annual production in Vietnam is over one million tons, not including home gardens, which almost always grow bananas for personal and local use."

But would you need that much... mud? Buffalo dung?

Geez, didn't you learn from Survivor that not all Asians are the same? :umn:

Oh Hell no....

I have had fish head soup, I have eat squid and tehr forms of raw fish.  I have had crickets (grashoper is a cricket isn't it?).

I have had cavier, I have eat raw egg (Or I should say drank raw egg). 

I have had monkey brains in China.

But I am terrified of snakes.

And when someone offered me snake to eat, I lost it.  The next few days I had dreams where I did eat the snake ad then the little eaten bits turned into little tiny snakes that eat through my body.

So I don't want to see any snake eating (:;)

I drew a line that represents the direction from the setting sun on June 12 , 2006.

Hey...I disagree that that frame is from India, I think it is probably from Kuwait.

The first frame of the people in Post 636 by puddin has a man with a head covering -- I've only seen this in real prominence in Muslim cultures. Also, the women have hijabs on (the woman right next to the man with the head covering is clearly wearing a hijab in the style that many Muslim women wear hijabs) -- even the young girls are simply covering their hair -- and it looks like desert. So I think it's definitely Kuwait or some other Middle Eastern country. There are Muslims, of course, in India, but I can't think of any desert-type area in India with Muslims (I'm saying this partially because I was born/lived there). I may be wrong, but since we have Kuwait as a definite, I would say go with Kuwait.

From the shadows on the Great Wall it does not look like there is much time between the arrival of the first five teams.  Even the last place team has the  similar shadow patterns.  So if the time is right and people are climbing the wall between 4:08PM and 4:39PM  that means the teams will be leaving in the early morning at the  same hours. (The earlier time estimate won't work since the excercise bit was between 10 and 11AM and then they have drive a food ways to the Great Wall location.

For future reference in spotting teams I spotted the following backpack numbers:

1.  Sandra and Peter
4.  Lyn and Karlyn
5.  Duke and Lauren
9.  Rob and Kimberly

Puddin:  did anyone spot any backpack numbers for the teams in Paris?

Do the boys have bags in Paris??  Because we know RK and LK do have bags so JT must not otherwise they had to have then eliminated that rule unless DK [or EG] are eliminated the second to last leg [Hayden and Aaron, Bowling Moms] meaing all three final three never ever come in last.

I know i am just trying to figure or no weather that rule is still in affect becuase if it is its impossible for all final three teams to still have their bags [unless the forth place team get eliminated in the leg before the final] and from the looks of it TJ have the fanny pack so either that rule is gone or Dustin and Kandice get eliminated in Spain [not a second Finland leg, or the missing leg]

maybe they went to the tar5,6 way of having the 4th team in the 2 hour finale? then paris to finish line is the second hour

We are still going with Kim and Rob, Lynn and Karlyn, and Tyller and James in Paris.  Either they are legit or clever decoys given the opportunity to view the city from the Eiffel Tower.

Here goes:
Team 1 : f/f as per video
Team 2: m/f as per video and looks like same as kuwait carpark to me
Team 3: m/m i am 80% sure it was same guy as "audition" tape
Team 4: m/f asian male and geeky female but not 100% sure as they were not sitting together and by geeky i mean she reminded me of lori in her stance/appearance and not playing up the the cameras as the first 3 teams. She sat on the sun bed under a tree and just waited quietly on spoke to the black female for a short time.
Team 5: f/f black - personally it looked like they did not want to be there in terms of all the other teams looking so competitive.

and more posted by Izabela @ sucks
Don't forget only the male is asian in that team and the female is what I call my token "Lori".
I would give them a good 20 mins after the 3rd team which was the young m/m team.
The young m/m team arrived 10-15 mins after the leading couples. This 3rd team seemed to catch up some time with this roadblock but still left 3rd

http://viltsu.net/gallery/v/Yhteiset/Matkat/Turku2006/
I heard from a reliable source that some woman had talked with one couple in the train and the couple said that they had flown from Madagascar to Helsinki and from Helsinki to Tampere and Ylöjärvi and then they had to travel with a train to Turku where they must find the cars and drive to quarry mines in Lohja. What happened after that is unknown.
 
Signal checks in with more details!

I've read and heard about people seeing the contestants climbing in the Olympic Stadium's tower in Helsinki, and Phil was spotted in a park/restaurant in Helsinki, wich could also be true.
"Yes, they were also in Tampere week ago friday (june 16th), or actually Ylöjärvi, close to my home. I heard about it from my aunt who drives a taxi, and she had taken one couple from Tampere train station to Ylöjärvi and back. They were hurrying to catch the train to Turku. My aunt was first a bit shocked when few dark skinned americans passed others in the queue and jumped to the car with a man sitting on the front seat who had a  huge camera"

There was another sighting at the Helsinki train station june 16th. A "chinese" looking couple was seen running in the station with a camera man, and they had two other couples following them

Oh no, the ratings are down?  I woudl think with such a great cast & it being moved to Sunday, the ratings would be back up.  Tar has less competition on Sunday and that is a good TV night..I think. ???  :waves:  Well, it's a good nite for me anyway!  :tup:

I can't believe that ratings are down - on all 4 flights I took on American to my vacation - they showed TAR extended commercials - it was only shots of previous races but, you would think that it should help a little with the ratings.  :'(

This from Neobie in the introflash thread :
(http://img218.imageshack.us/img218/2118/91920060021ca5.jpg) (http://www.bluffton.edu/~sullivanm/vietnam/hanoi/templelit/97.jpg)

Found this on a temple in Vietnam: "The temple, acknowledged by the state as an historic site, is a low building. On the tip of the roof are the traditional symbols found on Vietnamese religious structures: two dragons bowing to a flaming disk that represents the sun." The sun is pretty evident in the caps, so it's probably not China.

Spoilerers take note: Vietnam has a Forbidden City of it's own at Hue with dragons everywhere, it's one of the places where Flo broke down in TAR3.

Post by: gingerman28 on September 22, 2006, 09:26:04 PM
This is how I figure the way the show shapes up during the last few legs.  Correct me please if I am way off base on this:

KUWAIT (7 TEAMS ARRIVE - 6 TEAMS LEAVE)
Dustin/Kandece
Edwin/Godwin
Lyn/Karlyn
Rob/Kim
David/Mary
Peter/Sarah
Tyler/James (not spotted but must be here since they are spotted later)

ELIMINATED: Peter/Sarah

MAURITIUS (6 TEAMS ARRIVE - 5 TEAMS LEAVE)
Edwin/Godwin
Lyn/Karlyn
Dustin/Kandece
Rob/Kim
Tyler/James (See Above)
David/Mary

ELIMINATED: David/Mary

MADAGASCAR OR EGYPT (5 TEAMS ARRIVE - 5 TEAMS LEAVE)
Edwin/Godwin
Lyn/Karlyn
Dustin/Kandece
Rob/Kim
Tyler/James

NON-ELIMINATION

FINLAND (5 TEAMS ARRIVE - 4 TEAMS LEAVE)
Lyn/Karlyn
Rob/Kim
Dustin/Kandece
Tyler/James
Edwin/Godwin

ELIMINATED:  Edwin/Godwin

SPAIN (4 TEAMS ARRIVE - 3 TEAMS LEAVE)
Lyn/Karlyn
Rob/Kim
Tyler/James
Dustin/Kandece

ELIMINATED: Dustin/Kandece

PARIS (3 TEAMS ARRIVE - 3 TEAMS LEAVE)
Lyn/Karlyn
Rob/Kim
Tyler/James

Note that this scheme only works if Puddin's information is correct and Lyn/Karlyn, Rob/Kim, and Tyler/James are still playing the game in Paris and are NOT decoys.  If they are decoys then please throw this whole mess into the nearest circular file.

Second Note: what ever the teams have to do in Paris doesn't effect the outcome since the three teams are spotted together on the flight from Paris to New York.

Revised to include changes from below.

Now this might just be coincidence but i found it interesting.

At the start in Seattle after Phil says "The last team to arrive.. will be eliminated, teams are then show in this order.
1. Lyn and Karlyn
2. Rob and Kim
3. James and Tyler
4. Dustin and Kandice

Now its highly speculated DK come in forth, fighting couples normally come in second, so do LK win, remember also the best team usually never wins [Tyler and James] so maybe the girls do win it.

I'm really liking James & Tyler.  :tup: They seem very down-to-earth, relaxed, get along well, & seem focused.  I like David/Mary & was gonna root for them all the way...but now I'm wavering a bit with them.  Opps I'm off topic, so will save it for THEIR thread!!

Kuwaiti ( 6/9 ) 7 teams  spotted Dus/Kan ,Pet/Sarah ,Chos ,Lyn's ,Rob/Kim ,David /Mary ,James/Tyler

Mauritius ,Africa (6/12) 5 teams spotted Dus/Kan, Rob/Kim, Lyn's, Chos ,James/Tyler , Izabela said 6 canoes and speculated 1 team may have taken a Fast Forward.

we know they go to Madagascar , assumes around ( 6/13 ,14 ,15 ?)

Finland (6/16 ) Lyns , Chos , Dus/Kan ,James/Tyler (, assumes) Rob/Kim per Paris pictures , not sure if theres a 6th team?

How do we lose 2 teams from Kuwait to Mauritius ? could there be 6 teams in Mauritius and one team does take the Fast Forward as speculated by Izabela ? Do we have dates for Vietnam?

I was thinking the same thing, Puddin -- David/Mary & Peter/Sarah are no-shows in Mauritius. I am thinking FF. Don't think there's room for another leg in between Kuwait & Mauritius.

We really need a timeline mwooden , the June 2nd New Zealand spoiler is knocked out ( possably the other dates too ?) . Assumes the teams are in Vietnam on June 2nd . And now we know there are 2 legs in Vietnam for sure so ?
8 teams left .. has to be a non-elim in the next 2 episodes and or a TBC . Maybe 2 legs left before we get to Kuwait ?
Vietnam 6/ 2,3,4 ?
? New Zealand 6/5,6 ?
Kuwait 6/9 ( down to 7 teams Tom/Terry eliminated )

I'm just confused on the dates , maybe Neobie or Chateau can help us out .

Post by: Chateau d If on October 02, 2006, 02:43:09 PM
The teams started the Vietnam leg on June 1st, 2nd, or maybe even 3rd.  It all depends on if the pitstop was extended or not.

I don't have any information yet to pin the date.  That flight to Beijing goes out daily so no help there.

Something will come to the surface.  But what we have now definitely rules out the June 2nd New Zealand soiler.

I couldn't find a decent datestamp. The ticket isn't close enough to read (it looks like Korean Air to me  ;D) and the Barbie taxi doesn't yield much, even taking the Vietnamese calendar (http://www.informatik.uni-leipzig.de/~duc/amlich/vncal_en.html) into account.

Weather Underground (http://www.wunderground.com/history/station/48820/2006/6/3/DailyHistory.html) has some info in Hanoi that  is consistent with the puddles in front of the Hanoi Hilton.  Light rain at 8:30 am.

That date was June 3rd.

Also it has a period of clear skies bounded by cloudy skies from 2:30 to 4:00.

If this is right then that would indicate that there was an Extended Pit Stop in Mongolia.

Well it sure wipes out the New Zealand spoilers ..being as they spend at least June 4th in Vietnam .
Already scratched off the June 2nd spoiler [ Asian team ,  Air New Zealand flight from Queenstown to Auckland, June 2nd ]

then we have this posted on June 4th:
[Apparently the Amazing Race came to NZ last week and they went to Devonport and one team asked my friend's sister's friends [xD] for money instructions on how to use the ferry!  ]

and the blog one posted June 5th 2006 that might hold up:
[ Well hello hello hello!!! I'm afraid I dont have any photographs for all you Beth- blog-a-holics but I just have to tell you that I am having the most amazing time here in the wonderful South Island of New Zealand!
(conts..)
seen teams from the tv programme 'the amazing race' jump out of 4x4s and get their clues from a small box in a small town; been told off by the production team for trying to pose for a photo with a clue from said box in our hand ]

Post by: woden on October 03, 2006, 07:11:18 AM
Reviewing the info we have, here's my best shot at a new timeline, Puddin. It assumes the following:

***An NEL this week followed by a TBC. It could go the other way around, but it seems more dramatic to mug a team before a long leg (especially since teams are short on cash as it is) than to have a long leg followed by an anticlimactic NEL.

***A short leg in Vietnam this week. Since they're staying in the country, I'm guessing they'll start early AM (in the promo, it's still dark as they go thru Hanoi) and finish in the same day -- June 4.

***Holding onto NZ for now, since we have nothing more reliable to replace it with. That spoiler is just holding on by the skin of its teeth -- WendyWings' stuff about Devonport (north island) and the blogger's sighting on the south island don't match up.

***A FF in Mauritius (or the possibility of either Peter/Sarah or David/Mary lagging WAY behind, not spotted on the beach).

I think they may be stopping over in Melbourne, Australia. Some of my friends managed to get in the crowd when they were filiming. They were right around the corner from my uni!
I maybe wrong though, it could be for the next season. Though the timing of the filiming ( it was fairly late last year - October I think) seems right.
Thoughts?

Just a quickie here.  From what we know about the teams seen in Kuwait, Mauritius and Finland, I do believe that we will have a NON ELIMINATION leg this week.  I know it is early for a NEL, but nothing else makes sense.  Still our bumbling boy friends, Tom and Jerry, will be the next to go this week or next.

One blurb: 10/8
It's a safe bet that another surprising twist is coming around the bend as the remaining runners tackle their 4th challenge .
and another :
What in the world is next? Episode 4 shouldn't be a bore , if the shake-ups ( like that pre-pit elimination )we've already seen are any indication.

Post by: puddin on October 07, 2006, 02:18:59 PM
now that we have proof that Amazing Race probably did not go to New Zealand , it was probably TAR Asia clues & racers  that was spotted  .. ?
I can at least defend our India speculation :

Hello,

1. I think the people that asked me for money did have backpacks; don't quite remember.
2. The picture of the cars was at the towers (hence the large tower in the background); there was one car that had yet to arrive when I took that picture.
3. They most likely came from DEL (Delhi, India); based on the times.

Here's a quick update, with USA, China, Mongolia, New Zealand, Vietnam, Kuwait, Mauritius, Madagascar, Finland, Spain and France as 11 of the 13 countries. One missing country goes in between Vietnam and Kuwait, the other between Finland and Spain (probably Belarus then).


Does India  (http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php?topic=8610.msg125319#msg125319) work? ..and nice map :)   (http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/2562/tar10spoilermapte3lt8.th.jpg) (http://img291.imageshack.us/my.php?image=tar10spoilermapte3lt8.jpg)
Heck, who needs to watch since we know where we are going and when.  Only one gap between Vietnam and  Kuwait. And about a five-days of missing time.  India perhaps?>
I've been posting India as a possable location but no one will listen to me Gman   :angel:

Did Kim (of Chip & Kim) give away a possible TAR10 location (INDIA) on her "Return of the Racers" blog posting?

...What a surprise to see a second elimination in one night. I would have loved to see more of Vipul and Arti and get their prospective of the race when they visited their homeland."

It's a bit vague, but could mean that TAR is going to India.   :angel:

HAHA Boingo ! It was umm.. alluded to me that they might have gone to India but I have no proof just something I heard , maybe just passing through ? Nothing of India , New Zealand , Finland nor Belarus or Paris in the intro caps either ..seeing as we have pretty solid spoilers for say Finland & Paris  I suppose they are all still open for speculation.. and now we have Egypt ? wowsers ! Who has a minute to count the 13 countries with solid spoilers ?

I've made some small progress on the camel cap (http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR10/Kuwait/camelracing.jpg), but I'm not ready to call a match yet. Buckaroo has already spotted the Kuwaiti flag near a building. There are a couple of racetracks in Kuwait; the closest I've found so far is the Al-Atraf camel racing club, between the city of Jahra and the Ali Al Selem air base (kmz attached). About the saddle: that might be a robot jockey with a gps antenna sticking out the front. Most robot jockeys are larger (see the photo here (http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2005/07/0715_050715_robot_jockey.html)), but I've found photos of smaller ones (photo on the right here (http://www.cameljockeys.org/)). On the other hand, it might be just a fancy saddle (the parent site of this page (http://camelphotos.com/racing_camels.html) will tell you anything you ever wanted to know about camels  :lol:). But I doubt it: fancy saddles mean extra weight.

EP1: Seattle, WA (USA) to Beijing, China - ELIM
EP2: Beijing, China to Gachuurt, Mongolia - ELIM

This also doesn't count Bilal & Saeed's elimination as a "pit stop" elimination. Another interesting thing about this new NEL twist is that it makes an NEL in the middle of the finale pointless, so we won't have one there.

I think we just have 3 NEL's still then -- that is, if we have a TBC somewhere too -- for example, something like this (the placement of NEL's is pure spec):

EP1: Seattle, WA (USA) to Beijing, China - ELIM
EP2: Beijing, China to Gachuurt, Mongolia - ELIM
EP3: Gachuurt, Mongolia to Hanoi, Vietnam - ELIM
EP4: Hanoi, Vietnam to Halong Bay, Vietnam - ELIM

EP6: Chennai, India to Kuwait City, Kuwait (JUNE 8-9) - ELIM
EP7: Kuwait City, Kuwait to Grand Baie, Mauritius (JUNE 11-12) - ELIM
EP8: Grand Baie, Mauritius to Madagascar (June 13-14?) - NEL #2
EP9: Madagascar to Lohja, Finland (JUNE 15-16 - spotted in Finland on JUNE 16) - TBC
EP10: Lohja, Finland to Belarus (June 17-18?) - ELIM
EP11: Belarus to Ourzazate, Morocco (June 19-20?) - NEL #3
EP12a: Ourzazate, Morocco to Barcelona, Spain (JUNE 21-22) - ELIM
EP12b: Barcelona, Spain to Paris, France to New York, NY (USA) (JUNE 23-24)

for some odd reason i think there is no tbc but a 4th nel. the tbc doesnt make scense anymore with the new penalty

Since the Mauritius leg is coming up ..some thoughts

See this is where Izabela  (http://www.realitytvtalk.com/forums/showthread.php?s=aa81778ddeb3cd849bd6a0828daffe62&threadid=15419) confuses me and makes me  :groan: , she doesn't mention the male/male team here so did she just confuse Mary & David with one of the Chos and maybe there were 6 teams? :

Izabela
We just got back from a holiday in Mauritius and witnessed a detour for TAR on the beach right next to our hotel around 10-11am.
The location was Merville Beach Hotel which is in the North of the island.
We counted 5 couples come and go within about an hour. The detour involved a paddle on a kayak. They went quite far out hence not sure what they did out at sea.
We have some camcorder footage although I don't have it on my PC yet. We were told off by one of the crew for taking it but I think he was just bignoting himself.
Anyway an interesting experience seeing the couples ham it up when supporting each other (or are they really that enthusiastic!?) and all the crew required to film it.
There weren't too many spectators and a majority I don't think knew what the show was
 Mauritius was a great holiday BTW. It has a lot of resort hotels - generally getting mostly Europeans in - particularly French and English.
Anyway the couples we saw were a youngish all-girl team (winning), 2nd was another young couple (a guy and girl), there was the token black couple, an asian looking couple, and a geeky looking couple.
The black woman who did the kayaking was absolutely exhausted after the kayak ride and fell on her butt after getting out of it.
I should clarify the above point. She really look p*ssed off and the pair of them weren't in much of a hurry - but we noticed that couples were held up for a couple of minutes and given water before running off to continue the race.
But its all go go go - saw a cameraman take a pee in the sea when he had precious seconds to spare - just thru the camera to someone to hold and went in fully clothed up to his waist keeping his arms in the air so they wouldn't get wet.

Helicopter overhead - it was a really busy hour or so, then they dug up the clue box and left

Over at sucks  (http://p085.ezboard.com/fsurvivorsucksfrm23.showMessageRange?topicID=6980.topic&start=201&stop=220) Izabela post's :

Here goes:
Team 1 : f/f as per video
Team 2: m/f as per video and looks like same as kuwait carpark to me
Team 3: m/m i am 80% sure it was same guy as "audition" tape
Team 4: m/f asian male and geeky female but not 100% sure as they were not sitting together and by geeky i mean she reminded me of lori in her stance/appearance and not playing up the the cameras as the first 3 teams. She sat on the sun bed under a tree and just waited quietly on spoke to the black female for a short time.
Team 5: f/f black - personally it looked like they did not want to be there in terms of all the other teams looking so competitive.

Actually we were surprised how little security they did have however judging by everone else watching around us they had no idea what was going on bar 1 couple.
The roadblock happened basically next to Merville Beach Hotel which is known as one of the oldest hotels on the island. It is over an hour's drive from the airport.
We were fairly sure the pitstop was after this roadblock and there are several resort style hotels near by they could have gone to. However they arrived in cars so its possible they could have driven anywhere after that.
About halfway between the airport and Merville is the capital, Port Louis. Good locations here for clues/tasks etc would be Le Caudan waterfront and the markets which are close to each other.

and then  (http://p085.ezboard.com/fsurvivorsucksfrm23.showMessage?topicID=6980.topic&index=245)

Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Anyway...Iza...about the Asian M/F team, the M/M team, and the African-American F/F team...how far behind the caucasian F/F and M/F teams were they?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Don't forget only the male is asian in that team and the female is what I call my token "Lori".
I would give them a good 20 mins after the 3rd team which was the young m/m team.
The young m/m team arrived 10-15 mins after the leading couples. This 3rd team seemed to catch up some time with this roadblock but still left 3rd.

My tv guide hardcopy 10-23 to 10-29 has a little blurb about Peter :
Watercooler What we're talking about..
The amazing race biggest loser
We cheered for Sarah as she scaled the scary cliff with her atificial leg .Her boyfriend ?He sat back slurping a drink ( and later in the episode berated her ). Nice team work buddy! [ picture of Peter sipping his drink , Halong bay ]

Reality
Amazing Race 10
Several of this seasons contenders look like they can go the distance,but who knows if leg 7 of the race will be lucky (i.e. ,a non-elimination ) for the tardiest team of the night .( This show contains the info you'll need to crack one of the challenges on Gold Rush)

The man up above with the badge on his forehead was in the show last week. He's in the make-a-rice-picture task about 12-13 minutes from the end. You can see him when the models realize they should have had on an outfit. They say "well, he didn't tell us" and they show that same head shot--so I don't think he's somebody new...

I have a wacky theory and I wonder if anyone here can convince me it's impossible:

What if the three teams that are supposedly in the finals (Rob/Kim, Lyns and James/Tyler) are actually the decoy teams, and the other three teams are racing to the finish?

I wonder because every other season has had a NYC spoiler that has turned out to be decoy, and the Eiffel Tower seems a very risky, swarming-with-Americans, spoiler-iffic spot through which to send the final teams, just as NYC has always turned out to be.

Anyone? (be kind!) :hallo3
Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: puddin on October 23, 2006, 04:42:23 PM
I say lets wait and see which team is eliminated next 2 legs Aquila :hello2:, 6 teams left one gets eliminated in Maruitus or Madagascar ( thinking we have either another NEL or maybe a superleg coming up this week?).That should seal the final 3 right?
We know for sure from the Finland spoilers that Tyler/James, Dustin/Kandice, are safe ( picture proof (http://viltsu.net/gallery/v/Yhteiset/Matkat/Turku2006/) )with reported sightings of a Chinese looking couple,a few dark skinned americans as well as a couple w/no description . Time will tell whether the couple is Mary/David or Rob & Kim.

I actually wondered about this too! (we newbies have to stick together)

This would be fabulous if true--I'd much rather have the other three final three. BUT, it does seem unlikely given the high quality of spoilers here...

And, somewhere/sometime, I seem to remember reading that the fourth team eliminated was the ONLY team not to go to Sequesterville--as they were usually sent on a "decoy" leg. I don't recall ever seeing anything about three teams doing decoy legs. *sniff*...guess I'll have to get resigned to seeing my favorite teams go out one by one...

New clip in the EP6 thread but not much new, sorry.

update ( I'd still feel better if the ES website was updated as well as the newspath )
MONDAY MORNING ON THE EARLY SHOW

Harry Smith, Hannah Storm, and Rene Syler anchor THE EARLY SHOW from New York. Julie Chen will anchor from Los Angeles. Audrey Puente, of our New York affiliate WCBS, will bring us the weather.

Along with the top news of the day, we will also have the following stories:

WITHOUT A TRACE: On July 3, 2005, 25-year-old Tony Luzio Jr. got a head start celebrating Independence Day. It began like any other night with his friends, playing cards and hitting the local bar, but something went seriously wrong. Anthony Luzio Jr. disappeared without a trace. Monday morning, we will tell you his story and how the efforts to find him continue. Anthony’s parents, Carla and Anthony Sr., will join us Monday morning to talk about the devastating disappearance of their son.

OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN: It's hard to believe, but Olivia Newton-John has been entertaining audiences for over 40 years. Along the way she has collected four Grammy Awards, fifteen Top Ten Singles and starred in the biggest movie musical of all time. Now she's back in stores with perhaps her most personal album to date Grace and Gratitude. She will join us Monday morning to talk about her many successes and to perform some very personal songs from her new album.

PUMPKIN CARVING: As Halloween quickly approaches, costumes and candy are ready for a night of trick-or-treating. But what about decorating with pumpkins? The holiday is not complete without them. You can carve a spooky pumpkin to mark the festivities, but as it turns out, jack-o-lanterns aren’t the only way to go! Monday morning, Nancy Soriano of Country Living magazine will join us to demonstrate three different ways to carve and decorate pumpkins.

GOLD RUSH LIVE: As AOL’s interactive game Gold Rush continues, we will be live on our plaza with the fierce competition between two contestants. Mark Steines of Entertainment Tonight will host the battle of the minds. The contestants will compete for the key that unlocks a vault that contains a $100,000 gold bar. So which will they choose? The gold, or the cold hard cash? Monday morning, you’ll see what the winner decides.

OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN PERFORMS: Live on our plaza, Olivia Newton-John will perform a song from her new album Grace and Gratitude.

OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN ENCORE: The music continues! Olivia Newton-John will sing the classic Hopelessly Devoted to You, from Grease live on our plaza.

It is still possible that Paris/New York is a spoiler. Rob and Kim showing their clue to jlaw on the flight from Paris to New York is the sort of thing which often indicates a spoiler.

I know that in Series 9, the last team to go to Sequesterville was 6th place Lake/Michelle (thanks to frostieJ for that info). As the show gets more well known (especially now when you consider that it has wons Emmys for 4 years in a row now), it makes sense to have a full-on decoy leg rather than just having one or two teams doing decoy runs.

I love this idea--much nicer than seeing my favorite teams go out one by one!  :'(

Certainly most all of the final three guesses are based on the Paris sighting, but we do know J/T and D/K were also seen in Finland, for sure, and either Rob or James might be driving the chariot in Morocco.  Let's see...if this a decoy leg, then J/T, Bama's. and R/K can NOT be final 3....

So, thinking out loud here--if D/M, D/K, and the CHO's are final 3, then would J/T have to go out #4, and R/K either #5 or 6, and  Bama's either # 5 or 6???  Is that right?? Am I missing something??

Hardly seems possible but it would sure make me one happy camper!

Guess the next elim would tell the story--if it is D/M or CHO's--then Paris is real...But, if it is Bama or R/K, then Paris could be a decoy! (Right?)

Well anything is possible, spoliers have been wrong before. I have no proof that the Lyns, Rob/Kim or Tyler and James are final 3 but heard why back when that Tyler & James won . NOT a spoiler, just something I heard. And there were a few other details in the Paris pictures as well that were proof enough for me that those 3 teams were not decoys.
Like I said I guess we wait and see which team is elimnated next, then we will have our final 3 locked either way.

as far as the final 3 racing to the end:
THE AMAZING RACE 10 finale will air on Sunday, Dec. 10 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) with the SURVIVOR: COOK ISLAND's finale broadcast on a special night, Sunday, Dec. 17 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The final three teams on THE AMAZING RACE 10 sprint towards the finish line after traveling more than 40,000 miles in under 30 days, spanning four continents and 13 countries.

Yeah, but's what's up with the three finalists on the same flight to New York from Paris?  Noone's given a plausible explanation for that one yet.  The F3 typically return to the U.S. via an intermediary location where they may clear U.S. customs, so they don't have to pass through customs while dashing to the finish.
Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: mswood on October 28, 2006, 04:45:13 PM
No but apparently according to interviews they have held cast members together until everyone has cleared customs before.  This was mentioned in the commentary on Season SevenDVD for I believe the first leg.

So no reason they can't do it for a final leg. 

Brian or Greg (I believe said they were held up and then told when to go.

Based on the Finland spoiler, if Paris/New York is a decoy, then the next team to be eliminated would be Rob/Kim. If it isn't a decoy, then David/Mary are the next to go.

Since the Mauritius leg is coming up ..some thoughts

See this is where Izabela  (http://www.realitytvtalk.com/forums/showthread.php?s=aa81778ddeb3cd849bd6a0828daffe62&threadid=15419) confuses me and makes me  :groan: , she doesn't mention the male/male team here so did she just confuse Mary & David with one of the Chos and maybe there were 6 teams? :

Izabela
We just got back from a holiday in Mauritius and witnessed a detour for TAR on the beach right next to our hotel around 10-11am.
The location was Merville Beach Hotel which is in the North of the island.
We counted 5 couples come and go within about an hour. The detour involved a paddle on a kayak. They went quite far out hence not sure what they did out at sea.
We have some camcorder footage although I don't have it on my PC yet. We were told off by one of the crew for taking it but I think he was just bignoting himself.
Anyway an interesting experience seeing the couples ham it up when supporting each other (or are they really that enthusiastic!?) and all the crew required to film it.
There weren't too many spectators and a majority I don't think knew what the show was
 Mauritius was a great holiday BTW. It has a lot of resort hotels - generally getting mostly Europeans in - particularly French and English.
Anyway the couples we saw were a youngish all-girl team (winning), 2nd was another young couple (a guy and girl), there was the token black couple, an asian looking couple, and a geeky looking couple.
The black woman who did the kayaking was absolutely exhausted after the kayak ride and fell on her butt after getting out of it.
I should clarify the above point. She really look p*ssed off and the pair of them weren't in much of a hurry - but we noticed that couples were held up for a couple of minutes and given water before running off to continue the race.
But its all go go go - saw a cameraman take a pee in the sea when he had precious seconds to spare - just thru the camera to someone to hold and went in fully clothed up to his waist keeping his arms in the air so they wouldn't get wet.

Helicopter overhead - it was a really busy hour or so, then they dug up the clue box and left

Over at sucks  (http://p085.ezboard.com/fsurvivorsucksfrm23.showMessageRange?topicID=6980.topic&start=201&stop=220) Izabela post's :

Here goes:
Team 1 : f/f as per video
Team 2: m/f as per video and looks like same as kuwait carpark to me
Team 3: m/m i am 80% sure it was same guy as "audition" tape
Team 4: m/f asian male and geeky female but not 100% sure as they were not sitting together and by geeky i mean she reminded me of lori in her stance/appearance and not playing up the the cameras as the first 3 teams. She sat on the sun bed under a tree and just waited quietly on spoke to the black female for a short time.
Team 5: f/f black - personally it looked like they did not want to be there in terms of all the other teams looking so competitive.

Actually we were surprised how little security they did have however judging by everone else watching around us they had no idea what was going on bar 1 couple.
The roadblock happened basically next to Merville Beach Hotel which is known as one of the oldest hotels on the island. It is over an hour's drive from the airport.
We were fairly sure the pitstop was after this roadblock and there are several resort style hotels near by they could have gone to. However they arrived in cars so its possible they could have driven anywhere after that.
About halfway between the airport and Merville is the capital, Port Louis. Good locations here for clues/tasks etc would be Le Caudan waterfront and the markets which are close to each other.

and then  (http://p085.ezboard.com/fsurvivorsucksfrm23.showMessage?topicID=6980.topic&index=245)

Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Anyway...Iza...about the Asian M/F team, the M/M team, and the African-American F/F team...how far behind the caucasian F/F and M/F teams were they?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Don't forget only the male is asian in that team and the female is what I call my token "Lori".
I would give them a good 20 mins after the 3rd team which was the young m/m team.
The young m/m team arrived 10-15 mins after the leading couples. This 3rd team seemed to catch up some time with this roadblock but still left 3rd.



hey i'm a newbie here...

in this week's episode, T/J is the LAST team to arrive in the beach, so it is possible, that Izabela only saw the 6 teams because they are the first 6 teams in the beach, and when T/J arrive, they're not in the beach anymore...

What if the three teams that are supposedly in the finals (Rob/Kim, Lyns and James/Tyler) are actually the decoy teams, and the other three teams are racing to the finish?

Anyone?

I'm 100% they're NOT decoys.

Look at Lyn's shirt here http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b105/rawalsh/TAR9_Promo2/tar10/IMG_0932.jpg

it's mary's/david's yellow shirt "Friends in Low Places"

Why would mary/david give up their shirt for an eliminated team (suppose Lyn/Karlyn are decoys)?

I also think and im also 100% are not decoys, because i believe that LYN AND KARLYN is the representative of their "backpack alliance" in the final 3, that's why the editors are focusing to LYN AND KARLYN and DUSTIN and KANDICE because in the end, even though BQ's are a strong team, Bama will beat them...

Now this might just be coincidence but i found it interesting.

At the start in Seattle after Phil says "The last team to arrive.. will be eliminated, teams are then show in this order.
1. Lyn and Karlyn
2. Rob and Kim
3. James and Tyler
4. Dustin and Kandice

Now its highly speculated DK come in forth, fighting couples normally come in second, so do LK win, remember also the best team usually never wins [Tyler and James] so maybe the girls do win it.

hihi... hoping dis is ryt... :hallo2

Cho brothers and the blonds will make it to New York, most likely one of the later episodes of the season....

I was in NYC this summer early one Saturday morning right by Union Square, and I saw a few people running up to the group of people I was with, holding clue cards in their hands. I recall it was one of the Cho brothers (the younger one I believe), pointed to their clue card, which was the Alamo sculpture in Astor Place in NYC. (see picture on wikipedia here

One of the people in our group knew where it was, and pointed them to get to the right direction (it was South of Union Sq). It didn't hit us until a minute later when we were like, "didn't they look like they were in the Amazing Race?!?!" We never thought we'd be one of those people who they would ask directions for. I think we also saw the blond girls chasing right after the Cho brothers...

i almost forgot, shirley "surely" for some reason forgot about the camara / sound men :nut:

I'm trying to recall some of the decoys we've heard in the past? anyone want to help me out here please do.
Wasn't there a TAR5 decoy too?

TAR7 Alex & Lynn spotted running through NY, later they confirmed.
TAR7 Meredith & Gretchen run through the Dalla's airport, drop a yellow clue hoping that someone would notice them but it never happened.
TA7 Finale : Florida
TAR8 Bickering Godlewski's en-route to Canada
TAR8,LOTS of decoy teams, maybe not even teams running around Niagra Falls.

BVM article  (http://entertainment.howstuffworks.com/amazing-race2.htm)
Going Local
With the popularity of Race, it's now necessary to have security, decoys and cover stories to fool the curious, particularly in places American tourists frequent. "We have the Pied Piper motif going on a little bit," allows van Munster. "We'll call the show something else-they think we're filming a commercial," adds co-producer Elise Doganieri, van Munster's wife. "We'll be setting up a club box and Americans will ask, 'Is this The Amazing Race?' And we'll say, 'No, we're doing a documentary.'" 

Wiki (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amazing_Race)

* Eliminated teams are often sent to "sequesterville", a foreign location on the race where they get to relax and do some sightseeing until the race is over. Teams eliminated near the end of the race are generally flown directly to the final city, and asked to perform "decoy" legs in the same or a different US city in order to mask who the final 3 teams are and what the final city is.
*Due to the rather obvious nature of the crossing of the finish line, in later seasons several "decoy runs" have been done where teams from the final four are filmed crossing individual finish lines, to deter people from learning the identity of the winning team.

Would Erwin be the one afraid of heights?  I remember in the Kuwait City episode, he was performing the Roadblock at the Kuwait City Towers.  And he was worried about finishing the task because of his fear of heights.
Who do you think says the episode title quote?  It almost sounds like something the Barbies would say   ;D
Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: mswood on November 06, 2006, 02:29:56 PM
Both of the Cho's have a great fear of heights.  Though it only bothers Godwin in certain types of situations, for example in clips of Mauritius he was hoping to to parasail.  With being supported over water by a parachute seemed to calm him.

So far this is the only team we know of that has a mentioned specific fear of heights.

While we know for sure that both Erwin and Godwin are afraid of heights.

I think we have enough second hand information to learn that James is also afraid of heights.

1.  In Kuwait Towers everyone assumes teh roadblock is either bungee or repeling)  Tyler chosses to do the roadblock.  When he gets down.  James asked how it was, Tyler says it was easy. James says damn , he should have done it.

To me that implies that tehy discussed who should do it and James being afraid of heights asked for Tyler to do it.

And in fear tasks it usuallythe one who isn't afraid of heights who goes firt to reassure their teammate.  And you can see Tyler (or I should say) hear Tyler reassuring that James will beable to do this.

Yeah, if they win, it wil be in my opinion the worst ending ever.

They haven't raced well (they currently are tied at this stage with worst average of all teams through the seasons of AR.

And they are so negative towards otehrs.

Hell even Flo & Zach were a better ending.  Zach and Flo raced well (for half the race) and Zach raced well for the whole race.  And he keep a good attitude during the race and didn't kill Flo (he must be  a Saint).

Bama winning, I don't even like to think about that possability.

Eve D &K (who upset me at times) and Rob & Kim (who bicker to much and can be rude) are at least good racers.

There is still one strange thing hanging over all this:

The three teams: Bama, Models, and the lovey-dovies were all "spotted" on the same flight from CDG to JFK.  But later Bama were spotted in Rock Center getting out of a cab from EWR (Newark).  Newark cabs are not routinely allowed to pick up passengers at JFK.  UNLESS, the Lyns once again jump into a cab at JFK without waiting in the cab line.

So it is a puzzlement.

About the Newark taxi question, forgive me Kogs, the answer is probably in your link but I am too lazy to find it:

I suspect we will see something like Bama getting to the JFK taxi rank and saying "F this, look there is a taxi dropping off a passenger over there, lets grab that one"  And that taxi was from Newark.  But, of course, not in the rank because it would not be allowed to go there.

If they win it's going to be the bitterest $700 I ever made.

That thing about Tyler buying a house is kind of sketchy...

A.) I'm pretty sure they don't get the money until after the race

B.) They split and so he should only get something below 500 000

Unless he had money before I don't see how this could be true.

If Bama won it would be the worst ending ever on teh Amazing Race.  While otehr racers I didn't like won, and some that I liked but didn't think should win.

Freddy and Kendra for example at least raced moderately well through their season.

Bama sucks.  They are tied at leg at with the worst record of any team (including all thosse teams that get eliminated from leg 8 to leg 12).

I mean its bad enough they get to final three where tehy are looking likely to have the worst record of any final three team (even worse then Teri & Ian, Rebecca & Adam, and Ray & Yolanda).

And while I have liked the events and the locations, a bit better then seasons 6, 7, and (8 doesn't count lets all just forget that one).  I actually like some of hte cast in 6, 7, and 9 more then any of hte cast in season 10.

Remember, Bama finished behind Kentucky in Madagascar.  Without the 30 minute time penalty for Kentucky, Bama would be out!

Post by: mswood on November 16, 2006, 12:46:08 PM
Yeah they were saved by the new non elimination penality (which doesn't bother me, since I like the new non elimination policy).

But to give everyone an idea 47 teams in the regular seasons of the amazing race have made it to Leg 8.

Bama is tied with the worst leg performance with 4 other teams, Kami & Karli (Season5), Gretchen & Meredith (7) and David & Mary (10).

So even more then their bad attitude, I hate the idea of a bad team, lucking out and managing to make final three (though it does sometimes happen that a really bad team does make final three).  But for that team then to win.  Oh hell no.

Anf their average placement in legs is 6.13.

Out of those that won the Amazing Race the worst average is (at this stage) Chip & kim with 4.43, tehn Chris & Alex 4.13, tehn Freddy & KEndra & Uchenna & Joyce with 4.00. all other winning teams have better go from 3.75 all the way down to 2.63.

And that at this stage of the race.  For Bama to be average each leg nearly two full placing worse then teh worst winner, you will here me screaming, if they win.  Its bad enough that only once has teh team with the best average actually won their season (chip & Reichen), but at least it is usually the 2cd best team that wins.  I can accept that.  Bama's numbers.  Absolutely not.

How does it look, placement-wise, for Rob/Kim and Tyler/James? None of these teams have really dominated this season, but I assume they are better than Bama.

I would hate if Bama wins. That would make it the worst ending ever in my book.

Agree about the Bama's...And what is the worst? If the Cho's hadn't spoonfed them the flight info for out via Jo-burg--they would have missed that flight for sure and would be hours behind on the Finland leg and might not have been able to catch up. Darn it all! (Okay, I know there will be airport bunching, but a girl can dream, can't she?)

Okay for the rest of the bunch

Tyler and James place 11th (on the list of 47 teams that performed leg 8) with a 3.00 average.  OUt of all the winners of teh AR regular editions only one winning team at this point hada  better average (last season's BJ & TYler).  But almost every 2cd place team had a better record.

Dustin & Kandice are at 14th with 3.25 (they have the same record as these teams (Rob & Brennan s. 1, and Derek & Drew s. 3.

Rob & Kimberly are at 18th with a 3.38 the same average as Kevin & Drew s1, Hayden & Aaron s.6, and Ron & Kelly s7.

Erwin & Godwin are at 32cd with a 4.63 Just averaging slightly worse then the worst scored winner Chip and Kim.

So Tyler & James, Dustin & Kandice and Rob & Kimberly have good to respectible numbers (none are outstanding).

Hopefully I will have the full list posted on the non spoiler board by sometime tonight.  I will also be posted a possible range for each team depending on if they did they best they could until the ending, or if they did the worst they could (and still not be eliminated) for a range of possible final three marks for all 5 remaining teams.

Yeah, unforunately at this stage of hte race with final data (leg 8), only two season had all three teams that made the finals as its best players.  That'ss eason 1 (which featured exceptionally strong runs by all three final three teams at this point with it ranging from 2.38-3.25 for all three teams) and tehn season 5 which had a much bigger variance of 2.63-4.43.

All other seasons either had a tie (season 7 with Lynn and Alex having an equal rating with Uchenna Joyce) or season 3 & 9 which featured the third highest rating team not making final three (Derek & Drew and Joseph & Monica), or cases like seasons 2, 4 and 6 where two teams out of the top three failed to make three (Oswald & Danny, Gary & Dave for season 2; Millie & CHuck and Jon & Al for season 4; and Hayden & Aaron and Jonathan & Victoria for season's 6).

It would have been nice to see the three best overall teams at this point make final three.

Hey Mswood, I'm getting curious about all these stats you are making for the teams.  I always wanted to have some such form of information.  But I never got around to putting it together.  What I am wondering about is what is the algorithm you have for the calculation?

I suspect it is some way of averaging finish positions but my mind starts going to different directions thinking about how to deal with diminishing number of teams as the race goes on and on how the competition starts to get stiffer as the race goes on.

Is there some way to re-normalize the averages to build in a component of excellence for racing against high-powered competitors?

Well oo this site I simple use there placement at the end of the leg.  With no conversion for the decreasing number of positions on a leg.  Thats why you will notice that a team like Bama's number for the last two episodes (and to the end) will only go down.  Since their average is actually higher then the number of positions left in the race.

At one time I did use a conversion for number of legs so that each leg.  Where it converted all the positions of a leg between 1 (being first place and last being 10th).

So if you were 12th place like Bilal and Saeed in leg one you got a 10, Vipol and Arti would get about a 9.3.

While as an example the teams int he final three (usually two episodes) would be a 1 for theteam checking in 1st, a 5 for the team checking in 2cd and a 10 for the team checking in 3.

I stoppped that since people 1 found it harder to follow, and that people really disagreed with teams who managed to be around through good portions of the race could still recieve the same score as the team that was first out.

As for your idea of giving a formula to reflect difficult of tasks amoung body types, I would have never thought about that.  But the nly problem I see with that is I would also have to figure out one for navigation (and unlike tasks where we see a god portion of tasks being done, we only get a small fraction of scees showing driving, I would also need skill sets.  For example in the  climbing of the Great Wall, the Archery and the rowing.  If you have the skill sets necessary those aren't difficult tasks.

For example I am a skinny weak white guy, but I actually a descent Archer, even have hunted with Bow and Arrow before.  In the wall and the rowing almost everyone did it wrong making hte task a lot more physically tough.  For the wall two of the fastestover were the Cheer leaders, who did it properly.  Hardly teh strongest team.

Then you also have to do puzzle skills, how do I figure that.  Or the ability to follow the clues (eric and Jeremy easily not the sharpest team ever was exceptionlly good at following the clues instructions.

Teams have said that Tyler & James are the brightest, yet they have been good with putting puzzles together, following patterns, best ways to get verbal clues to cab drivers.

So on that, I don't honestly think anything I could come up with would actually come close in representing the facts.  There's just to many variables.

Post by: Mister RC on November 17, 2006, 06:03:35 PM
In terms of the sightings, it's amazing that this all happened, but I guess even the best of the best can only do so much to prevent things from leaking out. 

Personally, I'm shocked that all of these spoilers have been leaked, but the only thing that hasn't been leaked are the winners.  You'd think that we'd know who won one way or another, because in TAR's 7 and FE, the spoilers were off in the final couple legs at least, but around the first airing of those seasons, (after EP1 for TAR7 and several days before the season premiere of TARFE) the winners were leaked via sportsbook, and both times, it played out.

But yeah, unless it actually happens, there very little to no chance that the BQs will be in the F3, but what would be a nice consolation is to see Bama get Philiminated anyway as a new twist, making it a F2 dash for 1M.  Of course, that's moot when Phil says to the first team to arrive on Dec 3 that they are one of three teams racing for a million.

Sucks for the Chos, but that's that.  I really would've like the original F3 of T/J, E/G, and D/K to play out, since the Paris sightings of the F3 teams weren't all the same (I have to check one more time).  As for Bama, while they haven't done well, at least they haven't come in last on a NEL, which means if they can't win Leg 11 (or 12), I really pray that they do anything else other than to come in last place on Leg 11. 
Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: gingerman28 on November 18, 2006, 10:43:05 AM
Here's the final twist of a twisted series:

Bama arrives first at the final mat, but don't celebrate just yet.  They broke the rules at JFK and took an unauthorized taxi into town.  So when they arrive at the mat, Phil informs them of the violation and they are penalized 30 minutes and must stand aside and wait.

Now we's all got justice at last!  The models come racing up just ahead of R/K and arrive at the mat, but spot bama waiting on the side and believe "sucks we are second", but go into a fit of joy when Phil tells them that they are first, and R/K come and second, and bama comes in where they belong -THIRD!

Now I would call that real justice and a real twist!

Yeah I would love that after recovering form my initial heart attack when seeing Bama at the matt first.

Sorry I just cannot express how mad I will be if Bama wins, unless starting next week the run a perfect race to the end, then I might, might be able to deal.

After all in season three if anyone even suggested that Teri & Ian would make final three, I would laughed, and laughed and laughed.

But in the last 4 episodes they actually did really well, and by the end I actually wouldn't hate them if they won.
Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: dokus on November 18, 2006, 02:53:30 PM
I would hate Bama even if they won every remaining leg. They are hypocrites. I hate hypocrites. I especially hate entitled, sour hypocrites. Those are the worst. And they are such downers. I can't recall another team being so depressing. It's like a blanket over everything they say and do.

Man, I would hate if they edge out T&J, who actually seem to be enjoying themselves, or R&K, who might be crazy but has grown considerably since the beginning and wouldn't be totally undeserving.

I can sense that the final is gonna kill me just because I so desperately want his season to rock from start to finish. Which means it won't.

Title: Re: Amazing Race 10 Spoilers
Post by: mswood on November 19, 2006, 03:59:45 PM
Puddin, I think people are afraid of the possability.  On a regular leg, teams often get a chance to really build ups ome distance between other teams.

On teh final leg (unless you make a substaial mistake or something unexpected comes up) teams are usually equalized several times, including very late in the episode.  Thus giving an below average team an actually better chance of winning that leg then otehr ones.

Add to the fact that the best team almost never wins.  Just once so far in regular seasons has the best team actually won (s4 Reichen & Chip).  So thats a littleb it of a curse to the team with the best record.  And no matter what Bama can not get the best record or even 2cd best record for this season.

So while I hope Tyler & James win, I can live with Rob & Kimberly (which actually fits the statistical average better of what type of record the team that wins has). 

And unforunately so far this is one area where we don't have much in the way of solid spoilers.

Basically, it's the Weavers all over again.  At least with Bama, they had the Chos and Kentucky to befriend.  The Weavers didn't have anybody.

As for the Chos being gone instead of Bama, while several could've done without Bama, at least it's official that an all-female team will make the F3 for the first time ever. Like 'em or not, it's about time!

Not me, the Yield should, if used properly and put in episodes where it can actually effect the race, get a team eliminated.

The reason I hated the Yield for the longest time is that it had no effect on the race.

Since its debut in season 5 where it was avialable in all but the final leg, it as only casued the elimination of one team.

I don't like the Yield because, for the most part, you live or die on TAR based on your own strengths or mistakes, or pure good/bad luck. The Yield puts you at the mercy of another team and I'd rather teams sink or swim on their own.

Post by: mswood on November 21, 2006, 02:27:16 AM
Well I don't like the Yield.  I thinklive or die teams should go based on their own performance.

But if its in the show.  I wish teams would actually use it well.

THough some teams have Yielding Colin & christie (brilliant) but of course didn't matter non elimination.

Both uses in season 6 were plain and stupid.

Season 7, was an okay choice of yielded Ron & Kelly, the smarter choice would have been Uchenna & Joyce who were further back and thus more likely to finish last and get eliminated.  Giving you a final with Gretchen & Meredith who ROb & Amber considered to have absolutely no chance to win.

Season 8 everyone hated the Weavers the first Yield was just because of hatred towards them, and unforunately another team got killed (damned red bean.)

The second was primarily done to make sure the Linz had a buffer between themselves and the team that was in 2cd (before stupiod side trip), they really wanted a win, badly.  The fact that it was teh Weavers was just a nice big bonus.  Of course it was a non elimination, didn't matter at all.

Season 9.  For the first time the Yield killed a team, Yeah about time.  And it was a bad team a team with an average leg performance of 7.8.  We can argue if it would have been wiser to yield Ray & Yolanda, but we aren't for sure how much info Lake and Michelle had for sure, they did know the girls were behind them.

The 2cd Yield was idiotic.  Theres four teams left.  Your running a strong race, but one team is running the best race, of any team in the history of the damn show.  So who should you Yield?  Dumb asses.  Let your petty dislike for Mojo push you to yield them.  One of the dumbest strategy moves ever in the race.  And we all know it wasn't due to the cab cancelling since the Hippies had already been told by Eric & Jeremy that they had in fact done it (they told Ray & Yolanda as well).

Well I liked for the most part the Hippies, but I couldn't root for a team that got two non eliminations, made this stupid Yield error, and just in the last 4 episodes really made some very poor choices, that seemed to have no effect on the race.


I also wished we saw or got some idea why teh hostility between the Hippies and Mojo came from.

We know Ray & Yolanda & Mojo didn't really get along from day one.  Just different types of people.

But really beyond that I wished it was shown some where.

As for the Chos being gone instead of Bama, while several could've done without Bama, at least it's official that an all-female team will make the F3 for the first time ever. Like 'em or not, it's about time!
I know, but WHY did it have to be BAMA??? They really don't deserve that title, and no other team will be able to have that title. :(

Well, people weren't generally that happy about the first women who won on the race.

Nor have was I pleased with the next two women who won (Kim or Kendra).

Kim while cool, just passed almost everything on to Chip.  And while her attitude was funny on how she would say it, I still wish she was more active particpant.

And Kendra, oh don't get me started, while she had to do tasks her attitude sucked.

With Joyce we got the first women who I could really be proud of not just in attitude (like Kim) but in also doing task, including the fast forward.

I was also pleased with Megan of th eLinz, she clearly had a lot of trouble trying to keep up with her brothers, but she was always up to doing tasks.  She had a good attitude.

But her race was also generally an easier race.

How about this twist to twist all twists:  :groan:

Bama actually is eliminated in Spain, but since they have to be back at the finish line in two days, they travel along with the final three: Beauty Queens, Models and the Bickering Two.  They go along to the Eiffel Tower just to confuse things if anyone is watching.  Actually the Beauty Queens are in the lead and have come and gone and actually get an earlier flight to New York!

Previews show "bama running with back packs and the other teams with out.  Not sure it means anything but how knows.  I tried to slow down the clip of the teams cheering to see the looks on their faces to see if that gave away who won. DId not help me much

I was lucky enough to have a very nice chat at TARcon with Lyn and Karlyn. They arrived with an entourage of family and friends, including Lyn's charming and very supportive ex, who had apparently been keeping the kids.  He said it had been awful not being able to call her for advice! Both the ladies looked beautiful, and I found them both charming. Their personalities were more evident than on the race, and even Karlyn had a smile on! I give them full marks for turning up--it must be incredibly intimidating to come into a huge crowd of people that you know had harsh things to say about you, when you are unsure about your reception. They seemed very pleased that they were being congratulated for their top three finish. They also said that they only had about two weeks between hearing that they had been accepted and the actual start of the race--not enough time to seriously work out! They both said that if they could do it that there should be lots of hope for the rest of us!

Two bits of info: I asked Lyn about the Roadblock in Mauritius and she confirmed that she did do the kayaking task. She thought it must have been edited due to being so heavily spoiled (both she and Karlyn seemed very aware of the on-line forums!). She also said that she went out to a boat where she did a deep sea diving suit task (dome on the head and all)--ala the one Rebecca and Adam did--which she said was awesome.

I also complimented her on the Insider video of her family at Thanksgiving and said how cute her children were. But when I said to Karlyn that we were sorry not to have seen anything from her, she said that she had never been asked to do a video by CBS....

salon.com (http://www.salon.com/ent/tv/iltw/2006/12/17/tsunami/index.html)

Not only that, but the winners were more arbitrary than usual: Former drug-addicted boy-toys James and Tyler arrived at Charles de Gaulle first, and were told they'd never get on the first flight to New York, so they got tickets on a flight that left more than an hour later. Then bickering breeders Rob and Kimberly showed up and begged their way onto the first flight. Next thing you know, even though there was a huge waiting list, James and Tyler also squeezed onto the first flight. How did that happen? Something smelled fishy, and it was: Tyler told "The Early Show" that producers spoke to a manager at the airline and got them on the first flight because they were the first at the airport.

and oops there it is  (http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/12/11/earlyshow/series/amazingrace/main2245414.shtml?CMP=ILC-SearchStories) !!
They actually talked to the manager, because we were the first team at the airport," Denk, 29, told The Early Show co-anchor Harry Smith. "They talked to the manager and got approval and got seats on that flight and we were told there were 30 people on the waiting list."

puddin, the THEY in that sentence does not refer to the Producers--it refers to Rob/Kimberly. They are the ones who talked to the manager and got themselves on board.

I think that salon.com just misunderstood who the THEY referred to and thought it was TPTB and not a direct reference to Rob/Kimberly and that we actually SAW them working with the manager to get on.

I believe that TPTB have more sense than to do something like this which could clearly be interpreted as game show fixing. I think it was just a poor choice of an incompletely identified pronoun, since we know that "they" (Rob/Kimberly) did have help from the manager to get on.

from this interview at

iVillage (http://tvcocktail.ivillage.com/entertainment/2006/12/the_amazing_race_check_out_wha_1.html)
Shireese: When you guys went to the Orlly airport and they told you that you were going to have to go back to the Charles De Gaulle airport, did you know then that you pretty much were not going to win?

Lyn: No, and actually the decision to go to Orlly didn’t affect the outcome of the race. There was some behind the scenes issues with the tickets.

Karlyn: It wasn’t that cut and dry. Actually the lady issued the tickets to James & Tyler. I don’t know what the issue was, but she took them from them, and gave them to us. And then some other lady came over and said something to her in French. We don’t know what. We probably need to learn French…They took the tickets back from us, and gave them to James & Tyler. None of that was shone. So that was edited out.

Lyn: Then she put a whole line of stand-by customers on after them.

Karlyn: They tried to make it seem like it was full and it wasn’t. We don’t know what happened. We just felt like [Tyler & James] didn’t want us on that plane. They did what they could to keep us off of that plane.

They realized that they need 2 competitive teams to race around NYC and to the finish line so that they might hope for an exciting, TV ready, finish.  Letting Rob and Kim on the plane by themselves makes for a boring finish.  Paring Rob and Kim with Bama makes a boring finish.  It may be possible that Rob and Kim suprised everyone (producers included) by wrangling a spot on a full plane.  That set off a scramble to get another team on the flight.

I really think it has more to due with that the producers learned from Season 6 and were not going to let the fighting couple win easily like they would have against Bama or alone.   I think the producers had 0 choice but to have TJ make the flight, boring but they had to.  Had any other team like the Chos or the Barbies, Peter and Sarah, Duke and Lauren been there, they would have gotten the flight over James adn Tyler though.  I dont the race was very happy with the outcome i think they were looking for a BQ win and it came up short.   They had 3 very unrootable teams in the final three. Alot of critics i know on E! said Tyler and James winning was boring and predicatble.

Tyler and James were popular with the audience though, along with or after the Chos (for some reason), BQs and Kentucky they were by far favorites. They were certainly not "unrootable". They had an interesting story to tell and they were good racers, besides also being nice guys. I don't think "the race" thinks anything at all of that sort. They probably want an all-female team to win but there isn't much they can do about it. The BQs screwed themselves up and 'Bama sucked overall. This outcome was probably the most feel-good ending this show has seen in 5 seasons, but that's my opinion.

I don't think the producers interfered with the flight. Color me naive or whatever, but it would be to risky if it ever came out that one team got screwed like that. Maybe giving 'Bama the tickets was just a misunderstanding that was (thankfully) cleared up.

Well thats just you and a few of these boards with what a few thousand members, the public was board to tears with the outcome.   Tyler and James were pussys they were scared of two blonde Beauty Queens. for goodness sake. They didnt have a interesting story they were boring just like every other male team the worst part is that they were Models.   Amazing Race has this great problem they always cast a group of great teams but in the end NONE of those teams makes the final three, and i really think this is the reason ratings are always low [aside from 2 seasons when ratings went up, and then up a second time, Chip and Kim, Rob and Amber, Uchenna and Joyce Thanks]

And there really is no reason to post back "I liked James and Tyler, they were popular, look at the pole" it was boring, the race has become predicatable, Producers were NOT happy with the outcome becuase if they were they would have casted alpha males in All Stars, and they didnt they did not want alpha males becuase they are boring and predictable.

The fact that these two models admitted the producers got them tickets proves they didnt even win on their own, at least Uchenna and Joyce are smart enought not to admit it!!!!!!!!!!!!  I hate to say it but Rob and Kim[Gross i know]won this race, the same way Romber won Season 7.

What you're stating is just your opinion, like you're saying I am. I doubt you know what everyone else thinks. And the reason why your so called "great teams" didn't make it to the final 3 is because they got eliminated. That's how the game works, believe it or not.

James and Tyler didn't say the producers helped them on the plane. They said Rob and Kim got the manager to get them on the plane. Big difference. Tyler and James were the best racers this season and their victory was fair, atleast in that respect.

Okay lets talk facts.

If viewers are bored with say the typical males winning why is the season finale the highest rated episode this season with a gain of over 2 and a half million viewers over the last episode.

Ratings average's for full seasons
AR 1 8.8 million
AR 2 10.3 million
AR 3  8.98 million
AR 4  8.32 million
AR 5 10.73 million
AR 6 11.50 million
AR 7 13.00 million
AR 8 10.80 million
AR 9 9.10 million
AR 10 11.17 million

asamber  you (and I) can't judge what the audience likes.  Even the best poll is a minute non scientific sampler of the audience's reaction to the show.

For example I would be willing to beat that many fans of the Amazing Race find 60 minutes borrrrrring..  Yet it outscored AR in every episode this season.  Does that make the people who find it boring correct, or is it just their opinion that the show is boring.

As for All Stars, they didn't pick several very popular teams from the various seasons.  But they did exclude all alpha male teams, was this becasue they were boring, or because they were 50% likely to win the race (what you would call predictable).  Because one and theother don't necessarily go together.

And when you consider the makeup of teams, seasons 1, 2, 3, and 4 had the most "average" type of people on them, and yet 3 of them are the lowest rated season of AR.

And calling James & Tyler pussies for being afraid of Dustin and Kandice really doesn't make or strengthen your arguement (in fact it makes it weaker).   Teams are always worried about the team that is most likely their next biggest threat.  For the first half of this season that was Tyler & James worried about Peter & Sarah who were the next best racers, and after they got eliminated it was then Dustin & Kandice.  Who were Dustin & Kandice worried about from leg 1, that was Tyler & James.  Yet they were so worried and scared that they didn't even use the Yield on them.

As far as the Models things goes, the most viewed season without stunt casting (season 6) had Lena & Kristy (models), Freddy & Kendra (Models), Victoria (model) and that season got great ratings.

Frankly the idea of not waiting two strong guys in the race just because its boring or predictable inflames me.  I mean seriously why say a certain body type shouldn't beable to race, that basically tells the other players they suck and can't compete.    Lets just change the title to the Okay its a kinda cool race.

I mean it can't just be just the model aspect because out of the guys that have won the ones that have model are not winners from seasons 1, 2, or 9.  Just half of season 4 (and I think that was after the race) and season 10.

For the guys that are Alpha Males that won sure 4 of the 5 teams were fit, but most weren't models or actors.

And as for the ticket incident, no the producers didn't get them tickets.  And has been gone over with.

from this interview at

iVillage (http://tvcocktail.ivillage.com/entertainment/2006/12/the_amazing_race_check_out_wha_1.html)
Shireese: When you guys went to the Orlly airport and they told you that you were going to have to go back to the Charles De Gaulle airport, did you know then that you pretty much were not going to win?

Lyn: No, and actually the decision to go to Orlly didn’t affect the outcome of the race. There was some behind the scenes issues with the tickets.

Karlyn: It wasn’t that cut and dry. Actually the lady issued the tickets to James & Tyler. I don’t know what the issue was, but she took them from them, and gave them to us. And then some other lady came over and said something to her in French. We don’t know what. We probably need to learn French…They took the tickets back from us, and gave them to James & Tyler. None of that was shone. So that was edited out.

Lyn: Then she put a whole line of stand-by customers on after them.

Karlyn: They tried to make it seem like it was full and it wasn’t. We don’t know what happened. We just felt like [Tyler & James] didn’t want us on that plane. They did what they could to keep us off of that plane.


If the wording of this is correct.

Then at no point are they (Lyn & Karlyn refrencing hte producers of the show, but hte airline staff and employees.

Notice  How tickets are first given to Tyler & James and tehn taken away and given to Lyn & Karlyn untila nother airline employee takes them and gives them back to Tyler & James.

This to me suggest that they gave teh tickets to the persons on the waiting list first.  Which again was Tyler & James.  As for ht epeople who were allowed to baord after Tyler & James.  We have to remember that Tyler & James did get put ont he list that night, Lyn & Karlyn had to do it in the morning since when they got  tot eh correct airport they were already closed and had to wait for it to open up to get on the list.  There could have been several others who got put on the waiting list between Tyler & James and when it closed for the night.

Nothing in this reports any strings by staff or producers.

All it shows is that if Tyler & James had pushed the right people at the beginning htey probably would have made it confirmed the night before.

Remember that someimes you can push ahead on the waiting list even if you aren't there first.  Charla used her disability at least once to get a priority on the waiting list even though 2 other teams were first on the list.

My boyfriend can say that when he worked as a ticket agent for United that occassionally the wrong person would get teh first of the stanby tickets and that he has had to be corrected and have his supervisor correct them and give them to the ones who were actually on the lis first.

MSWOOD, in your otherwise cogent note you stated "Dustin & Kandice worried about from leg 1, that was Tyler & James.  Yet they were so worried and scared that they didn't even use the Yield on them." It is clear from this that "they" refers to Kandice and Dustin. Well, Kandice and Dustin arrived third to the Yield. Their options were to Yield Lyn/Karlyn or Yield nobody. Since Tyler and James preceded them to the Yield, they could not yield Tyler/James.

Well thats just you and a few of these boards with what a few thousand members, the public was board to tears with the outcome.   Tyler and James were pussys they were scared of two blonde Beauty Queens. for goodness sake. They didnt have a interesting story they were boring just like every other male team the worst part is that they were Models.   Amazing Race has this great problem they always cast a group of great teams but in the end NONE of those teams makes the final three, and i really think this is the reason ratings are always low [aside from 2 seasons when ratings went up, and then up a second time, Chip and Kim, Rob and Amber, Uchenna and Joyce Thanks]

And there really is no reason to post back "I liked James and Tyler, they were popular, look at the pole" it was boring, the race has become predicatable, Producers were NOT happy with the outcome becuase if they were they would have casted alpha males in All Stars, and they didnt they did not want alpha males becuase they are boring and predictable.

The fact that these two models admitted the producers got them tickets proves they didnt even win on their own, at least Uchenna and Joyce are smart enought not to admit it!!!!!!!!!!!!  I hate to say it but Rob and Kim[Gross i know]won this race, the same way Romber won Season 7.

Okay lets talk facts.

If viewers are bored with say the typical males winning why is the season finale the highest rated episode this season with a gain of over 2 and a half million viewers over the last episode.

Ratings average's for full seasons
AR 1 8.8 million
AR 2 10.3 million
AR 3  8.98 million
AR 4  8.32 million
AR 5 10.73 million
AR 6 11.50 million
AR 7 13.00 million
AR 8 10.80 million
AR 9 9.10 million
AR 10 11.17 million

asamber  you (and I) can't judge what the audience likes.  Even the best poll is a minute non scientific sampler of the audience's reaction to the show.

For example I would be willing to beat that many fans of the Amazing Race find 60 minutes borrrrrring..  Yet it outscored AR in every episode this season.  Does that make the people who find it boring correct, or is it just their opinion that the show is boring.

mswood - thanks for the numbers. With those numbers, TAR should hang arond for a few more seasons.  I wonder what impact Sunday night, in an early time slot, had on TAR.  I though I heard they are moving to 10 pm on Tuesday?!  Did I just make that up.  I think TAR-AS would have even better numbers @ 8 pm on Sunday evening.  Especially without football delaying it.

Yeah, I should have used another paragraph that quote was that Tyler & James were in the words of the poster I was referencing so afriad of the BQ's that they didn't even use the Yield agains't them.  In the clips for that episode when they talk about it.  They say that they aren't threatened enough by any of the teams to actually need to use the Yield.  In otehr words all things being equal, they thought they would out perform Dustin & Kandice.

While Rob & Kim in their online clips talk about that the team they wore the most concerned with was Tyler & James, but they are friends and don't wont to race that way.
