If this sighting turns out to be genuine, it is likely to be Leg Two. If you search for flights between LAX and Fortaleza on American Airlines, it returns routes that fly through Miami and then either Sao Paulo or Brasilia. One of those two cities could be our missing link, as I doubt teams would take three flights on the first leg. Really clutching at straws here..

Welcome, vitoroseriestv! I have no trouble understanding your English.

I'm glad to see that we have people that are native speakers of Spanish and Portuguese and that have knowledge of the area looking at these tweets and giving their opinions. I was concerned that one of them might be true and I was too quick to dismiss them. I'm glad to hear that you mostly agree with my thoughts.

I have no doubt that the guy that accused me of stalking is fake since I've only sent one tweet since the race started (and another responding to the stalking accusation). The only way he could know I was following tweets about The Amazing Race was if he was lurking here. I've only heard the stalking accusation against this board in a couple of places. I have my suspicions about where the person making the accusations came from but I have no proof, so I'll just keep my ideas about this to myself.

First, sorry about my english, this is one of the motives that I'm not participative here  :'(

but I've been reading this forum has some years and never was able to help with nothing, but this time I think I am

I'm from brazil and can say that all these portuguese tweets (except the space one, that is the channel wich broadcasts the latin version here) are not written correctly! Looks like someone wrote the phrases on an automatic translate software and tried put it in portuguese

like I'm trying to do to write this message (I can easily understand, but hardly can speak or write in english)

About the spanish tweet saying about Fox do Iguaçu, it's possible because that is a city close about the border (Argentina and Paraguay), but I personally don't believe in it

Hoping this can help you guys

Now that i start thinking,makes sense...the guy only have 6 tweets,and tweet in very BAD portuguese really.But why this guy would do that?

Because, it has happened before. London in TAR17 comes to mind immediately.

There are plenty of people on the web that don't like RFF and/or TAR spoiling. Then there is the whole theory about CBS plants...

That's what gets my suspicions going. Why would someone who has never used Twitter before see the Amazing Race in his city and think that he has to get a Twitter account to tell the world about it? It's possible, but it seems unlikely.

As for why they do it, it's been happening for a few seasons now. There are a few people out there that would like to see us get fooled and be wrong about where the race is going. I don't understand the satisfaction they get out of doing that, but it has been happening, so they must have their reasons. I suppose it's possible that the TAR producers would like to throw us off track, but I think they would do a better job than what we've been seeing the last day or two. I'm fairly certain they would use proper Spanish or Portuguese rather than depending on bad computer language translations.

Yeah,he just created a account to do it...it's actually very impossible that the race goes through a small city like itapipoca too

Total SPECULATION, but I would love to see a TAR/TARLA crossover.  (Or really TAR with any of the international versions.)

It's not so much RFF in general or the fact that RFF spoils... Lots of people come here to get spoiled, me included.  But some people had been spoiled to being spoiler stealers, LOL, meaning, they would come here to get super spoilers and then take the spoilers back to their own forums and post them as their own.  Lately, the super spoilers are not being posted here like they use to be and it has some people in an uproar.  Personally, it makes me mad that those people spoiled it for the rest of us who come here to be spoiled.  I am not super internet savvy or I would try to help find this information too!  B:)

I don't know if the information on Foz do Iguacu is really true, but if it is that is spectacular. This was visited in AR2 but I would love to see it again. It beats Victoria Falls as the most exciting waterfalls in the world.

It's possible the ones that don't have gotten the site from elsewhere ... Meaning it was "taken" from here, posted somewhere else than a forum takes it from that other place and has no idea it came from RFF.

But yes, it is annoying when people don't receive the credit they're due!

Yet another first time twitterer checks in:

RobertoManarez RobertoManarez
The Amazing Race 20 en Punta Del Este. Tengo fotos..Pasaron por mi casa Se trata de dos cuadras de mi casa
7 minutes ago

Google translates this as:

The Amazing Race 20 in Punta Del Este. I have pictures .. passed by my house is two blocks from my house

Punta Del Este is in Southeastern Uruguay on the Atlantic coast.

I know that several following this consider the above to be a hoax. There are Buguebus ferries from Buenos Aire (all but one of which stops in Colonia on the way to Montevideo) on this schedule:

BUENOS AIRES
12:30 / 30 NOV 11
Pto de Dna NORTE    COLONIA
13:30 / 30 NOV 11    MONTEVIDEO
16:45 / 30 NOV 11
      
BUENOS AIRES
15:30 / 30 NOV 11
Pto de Dna NORTE         MONTEVIDEO
19:45 / 30 NOV 11

BUENOS AIRES
18:30 / 30 NOV 11
Pto de Dna NORTE    COLONIA
19:30 / 30 NOV 11    MONTEVIDEO
22:45 / 30 NOV 11

BUENOS AIRES
23:59 / 30 NOV 11
Pto de Dna NORTE    COLONIA
03:59 / 01 DIC 11    MONTEVIDEO
07:14 / 01 DIC 11

From Montevideo it is a 75 mile bus ride to Punta del Este and there are nonstop flights from Buenos Aires to Punta del Este as follows:

7:35 am   →   9:25 am   AEP-PDP   -   -   -   -   T   F   -   pluna 204
8:30 am   →   10:20 am   AEP-PDP   -   M   -   -   -   -   -   pluna 202
10:20 am   →   12:10 pm   AEP-PDP   S   M   -   -   T   F   S   pluna 208
10:30 am   →   12:20 pm   AEP-PDP   -   -   -   -   T   F   -   pluna 206
12:30 pm   →   2:20 pm   AEP-PDP   S   M   -   -   -   F   S   pluna 108
2:05 pm   →   3:55 pm   AEP-PDP   S   M   T   W   T   F   S   pluna 118
7:15 pm   →   9:05 pm   AEP-PDP   S   M   -   -   T   F   -   pluna 262
7:45 pm   →   9:35 pm   AEP-PDP   S   M   -   W   T   F   S   pluna 130
10:20 pm   →   12:10 am   AEP-PDP   S   -   -   -   T   -   -   pluna 276
10:40 pm   →   12:30 am   AEP-PDP   -   -   -   -   T   -   -   pluna 272

I don't know about you, but I would love to see "The Hand" again (reference AR5, episode 1) and I think a revisit to that meat shop from which Charla ended up carrying a 55 pound hunk would make a fabulous throwback.

This does not minimize the value of AR20 going to revisit Iguacu Falls, which is another alternative reachable from Buenos Aires.

Not many spoilers so far this season. Does anyone think they could already be on their second continent? That is what I think.

Too bad I was in Panama when it started.   :groan:

The Saturday, 7:30 pm indicators would have given sufficient time to run down to LAX and get shots before they took off from Gate 42B.

Oh well, I hope what I found in Panama about TAR19 helps to counter the lost opportunity.
