We don't know that they're not visiting South America this time - the only connection between Paris and Vancouver is that flight from Havana to Toronto, and Havana could just be a connection point in between, couldn't it?

I doubt Havana would just be a stopover, as flights usually don't usually stopover at Havana.

Exactly, and there was confirmation that some local Cuban film crew were hired to help film an episode of The Amazing Race Australia.

It appears teams arrived at the Starting Line via seaplanes:

awesome find ovalorange!!! I'm from sydney so maybe if i have some free time i could check out the area  :tup:

my best guess is that the starting line was at Lyne Park, the pier is built for seaplanes, there is a carpark right next to it, and a wide open lawn would be a perfect starting line :conf:

thank ovalorange!!! i will PM you if i get any info when i go there

I CANT WAIT FOR TARAUS2 TO AIR!!!!!!!  :hrt:

The first TARAus season premiered one week after the season finale of unfinished business.

I speculate this is gonna be the same case for the second season. The 7th episode will be delayed one week because of the CBS broadcast of a music award (info from wikipedia) so the finale should be on May 13. I predict the second season starts May 21 or close to that date.
Bring on the 21!

Aaaargh! (:;) :flipper

I can't take it anymore. When will they reveal the cast, this is excruciating. TARAus was one the most dazzling, entertaining, epic season ever (not just for a foreign version, but for a TAR season in general) and imo the only foreign edition thus far to hold a candle to the original.

Come on!
Bring on the 21!

I'm not sure where to post this so feel free to move it if you wish peach!

Quote
Seven also promised a ‘bigger’ race, with contestants travelling more than 65,000km over 4 continents. Two new twists will also enter the game- Must Vote U-Turns and the controversial Salvage Pass, which will shake up the first leg of the race.

http://www.throng.com.au/2012/04/the-amazing-race-australia-teams/

I'm not sure how reliable this info is though, this website is the only place I've seen anything about these twists.
I see you watching me watching you :)

Not sure what these twists are going to be, but I am excited that TARAus is creating twists of its own that are unique from other versions! :hearts:
1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

Love the Must Vote U-Turns, hope it's true! :jam:

If the Salvage Pass is real, could it have something to do with voiding a Race power used on you? :duno:

controversial Salvage Pass, which will shake up the first leg of the race.

If the Salvage Pass will 'shake up the first leg of the race', I speculate that maybe it is a prize awarded to the first team to complete some sort of Starting Line Task... otherwise it's hard to see how it will shake up the FIRST leg if it is not awarded at a Starting Line Task... :duno:

I think the season will go like this:

Leg 1: Sydney to Manila, Philippines: NEL
Leg 2: Manila to Legazpi City, Philippines: Kym & Donna eliminated
Leg 3: Philippines to Dehli, India: Adam & Dane eliminated
Leg 4: Dehli to Dubai, UAE: Sue & Teresa eliminated
Leg 5: Dubai to Istanbul, Turkey: Ross & Tarryn eliminated
Leg 6: Istanbul to Paris, France: either NEL or Geoff/Sticky & Sam eliminated
Leg 7: Paris to Havana, Cuba: either NEL or Geoff/Sticky & Sam eliminated
Leg 8: Havana to Vancouver, Canada: James & Sarah eliminated
Leg 9: Vancouver to Banff, Canada: Shane & Andrew eliminated
Leg 10: Banff to Beijing, China: NEL
Leg 11: Somewhere in China?: Michelle & Jo eliminated
Leg 12: China to Fraser Island, Queensland: I really hope either Joseph & Grace or Emilia & Lucy win over Steve & Paul if they are my predicted F3. Although of course the top 5 are interchangeable.

Hey,

I have not seen the Israel version, can someone explain me how does the u-turn vote work? does that mean that there is a u-turn in every leg?

That looks right to me supah3ro. :tup:

In TARIsrael2 teams had to vote on the team they wanted to be U-turned, regardless of the team's position (ie, teams could vote to U-turn a team ahead of them). The team with the most votes was U-turned. The Israeli version had the voting U-turn/yield in the majority of its first 10 legs, we don't know if TARAus2 will do the same.
I see you watching me watching you :)

Oh thanks Peach, well then the first India leg could potentially be a NEL but I think in the 2nd leg either Adam & Dane or Sue & Teresa will be eliminated, maybe with the aid of a u-turn.

Here's a link to a picture I found on Flickr in smileybrisbane's photostream. I'd post it but the photo has all rights reserved, so I can't save a copy of it. If anyone else knows how to do that, please post it here.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/8774875@N07/7101575405/in/photostream

It was labelled "Amazing_Race_Australia-301675" so it came up in my search. However,it was mixed in with a lot of photos of models in swimsuits, so it seems kind of an odd place for it. If these two in the picture are in TAR Aus 2, they can only be the two blondes, Michelle and Jo, climbing out of a boat, but in the photo they don't look like platinum blondes. One of their backpacks clearly has the red and yellow striped tag from the Amazing Race, so it appears genuine. It also has a watermark in the lower right corner that says "7ma". I'm guessing it's the logo for the 7 network and it's part of the promotional stuff they have released lately. It could also be from TAR Aus 1, but I don't know that cast, so I can't say.

As for the location, it's obviously not from the kayaking task in Vancouver, as it's far too cold there in December for bikinis. The background looks tropical with a white sandy beach and a radio tower in the distance. Could it be from Australia or the Philippines? The tasks in the timeline don't seem to match up. It could be from Havana too.
