TAR Canada / Re: Amazing Race Canada 6 PRE RACE NEWS and SPECULATION
« Last post by stunami on Yesterday at 03:45:21 PM »
Well I just started my list of potential teams today. Just FYI.

 :spy: Let me see please! What is this twist?

I just started it - there is only 1 person/team on it. LOL. But someone remind me once filming has started, since I wouldn't want to jeopardize anyone's chances of being cast.
The twist is they are casting for "heroes" but that is loosely defined as in anyone can be a hero. People can also nominate a person/team for consideration - with or without their knowledge.

You mean you took real people? Or more like archetype of people?

I'm thinking we will have a teacher's team, police or firefighters, and people who did big things for their local communities (not only big cities).

I'm really wondering how they are going to manage the whole nomination thing... :didimiss:
 I mean, why cast someone that didn't even try to be on the show.. that's kind of a slap in the face for everybody that applied. Best case scenario would be to factor all the nominations for people who really applied.

Like if they got a good nomination story from someone, and the nominated person applied, then it's easier to just present it as a person who was nominated. (but the racer really applied).

Anyway... I am curious also to see how it will impact the casting process. We would usually get a message on social media a week after deadline saying everybody who was contacted for round 1 has been contacted, thank you for trying, etc...

Bahrain IS considered Asia. And Im thinking there is still at least 2 legs before finale, so you could be right about Australia.

looking at flights Bangkok makes sense if they have 2 more legs before finale... thought maybe Tokyo but they have a typhoon coming so doubt it
Thailand would be wonderful. What other asian nations are a possibility (bleak though!) by looking at the flight schedule according to you ?
Also are we positive that Bahrain was only for one leg ? I know its an island nation, but still !

I've seen a couple tweets from Jody fans saying they'd also rather not know the finale leg placements.
I hope we can work together to not spoil anybody on that! :)

I would be 100% on board.

SO important to the SHOW.

And think...if you are team Jody and you win...would YOU want that info out there? HIGHLY unlikely, would take away half the fun of their fans watching and make their lives miserable.

need help with something... I was pretty sure I heard Phil say at the start they would go to 5 continents, but I can't find the video of it... its important because if true it means they likely went to Australia after Bahrain.
Isn't it too late for 5 continents ? With supposedly 3 legs left, crossing two continents seems unviable to me.
I think they will either cover Europe, Africa, Asia, North America OR Europe, Africa, Oceania, North America.
Thoughts ?

they've already done 4, Ny + finale. Europe, Africa, Bahrain = Asia, ?
Yes Bahrain's part of Asia, but have they done 1 nation asia leg ever ? I have to check on it. Either Asia has been skipped all together or atleast 2 nations have been visited as per my knowledge. Someone correct me if i'm wrong!

Update : I crosschecked for past 10 TAR seasons and I couldn't find a scenario where only 1 asian nation was visited. If an asian continent was touched, atleast 2 nations were visited.

I was there. Prob 20 feet away from Phil.

He was un-miked, was very hoarse, and with the crowd noise I could not hear that at all.

In fact I was disappointed to not hear the traditional __countries, __ continents, __miles .

There is an hour long professional start video out there, maybe that will have it?? I have tapes of him doing the intro x5, but I do not hear that said. 
But am sure it was said...just not that I can hear.

Spec:
The Man who took the pics and the video is apparently affiliated with the Bahrain National Stadium. Perhaps there was a task there as well?  Cricket? Football? ???

I am a cricket nerd and Peach, cricket is NOT played in Bahrain. Soccer, however, could be a real possibility!

What's that you say? ???

I too follow cricket closely Georgia Peach! Bahrain is an affiliated member of ICC (international cricket council) in theory only! It doesn't feature in the main 10-12 playing nations.
USA also has a national cricket team btw!
