What is the competition for the amazing race this season in its time slot?

And for some reason this preview for the all stars http://youtube.com/watch?v=vNOkqunE7n8 looks so much more intense then the preview of this season. it should still be awesome though but i do miss the beauty queens and charla and mirna terribly.

I am back to the question of which cities are most likely to be the UNKNOWN one between Vilnius and Osaka. I have thought deeply about this and I believe that geography was decisive in the choice that Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri made on the AR12 race route. Vilnius is above the 54th parellel and Osaka is on the 35th parellel. I think they would have chosen cities that do not go much below the 35th parellel for minimum flight times in a short, quick race. That means that all of the southern cities on my list shown above would not have made the cut. In fact, the only cities that would make the cut are:

Moscow(56th parellel)
Beijing(40th parellel)
Shanghai(31st parellel)
Ulan Bator (48th parellel, but I really doubt that they went back there so quickly)

In mid-summer, all of these are nice places to visit. I personally feel that Shanghai has an edge over the other two. From a flights perspective all have good flight connections from Vilnius, although Moscow has the best by far. All have good connections to Osaka, although Beijing and Shanghai are much better than Moscow(no surprise if you look at the distance).

FWIW, I googled "Car Park Paypoint" and the only thing it returns are links to the Orio Airport near Milan.   :groan: :o ???    Huh?   :dick   Might be a "Euro" phrase.   :rotf:

Well --no surprise--the bike scenes are located just behind Central Station Amsterdam by the canal where literally thousands of bikes park every day.

I'm thinking Connemara--maybe even the National Park? looks promising...

I think Ring of Kerry will be  too far south --they need to stay within easy reach of Shannon...

If that Marianna/Julia pic is from episode 2, I think we have our episode one elimination - Ari/Staella.

HELLO ALL!  :hearts:

Long time no speak. I've been so so busy with Uni etc. How are you all?

Anyways, this season looks friggin awesome!  :wohoo:

With the Episode 2 screencap of the pitstop with Nath/Jen and the Blondes, I think Nath/Jen are first and win a prize - hence one of the blondes clapping for them.

Thoughts?

Definitely but that means that Kate and Pat or Marianna and Julia will be out second my guess: Marianna and Julia!!

Been lurking again.  The Car Park Pay Point is a fairly standard kiosk in Europe.  Either you pay your money and get a ticket (to be displayed on the dash) or you put your ticket in and then pay before you leave the Car Park (Parking Lot).  However, being in English, I would suspect that this is a shot from Shannon airport as they head to parking lot (or taxi stand).  I am amazed at you guys and all of the CSI work.  Way to Go!!!

CAR PARK PAYPOINT is clearly in ENGLISH. This must be in Ireland, since english is not the native language anywhere after there until the race reaches Alaksa and Car Park Paypoint is not the type of phrase that would be used in Alaska. I am guessing that it is Shannnon airport or Dublin airport.

The girls are in the Ireland Airport, they are in the same exact clothes, same exact position.  One girl has the jacket around her waste ect ect in the first promo of them running out of the airport.


But wasnt there a spoiler of two girls wearing those tight black pants, and thats eaxctly what Mariana and Julia are wearing, but idk i was really paying attention.

Tight pushup pants bingo and really when you think about it --it could be some other combination of girls seated together but I'm leaning towards Shana & Jennifer ... we shall see.

And also i am really feeling a Christina/Ronald win, with all the  "any team can win" hype. But who knows.

Serriously if they do win, the terrible casting will be made up for!
