I AM STEAMING! I AM FURIOUS! I came to Shanghai 3 months after the filming of season 16 and I thought I was so close. Now this season came to Shanghai... I still live in Shanghai...

...

...

but I WAS ON HOLIDAY!

yep during the first leg filming of season 21, I was in Thailand. Lady luck hates me

Oops..That's too bad...
S16, S21, maybe they will come back in S26? Just guess...

Well, I live and work in Buenos Aires; I usually goes to the Bus Terminal for sending or retrieving packages for the company I am part of a couple days a week; and I didn't see the teams the day they arrived from Salta.  And that gives me a 3 of 3 in not crossing my path with TAR, including previous legs in Bs. As.; so lady luck hates me too. :groan:

No new countries (that we know of) yet... :groan:

This route is starting to resemble that of TAR15 or TAR19, which is not good news for me...

It's a good thing Bangladesh became independent of Pakistan after the civil war there in the 1970s, or else it might not be off the safe place to travel list (unless Pakistan itself).

I"m not going to expect much in Shanghai being the first leg. Usually first legs are underwhelming and short.

I believe it is also speculated that Nadine & Natalie won the Express Pass on leg 2. It would look like we have a new alpha F/F team. I'm loving them.

So it's a 3 continent race. I would have preferred more but I am loving some of these new places we are going to. I speculate Leg 8 is somewhere new in Europe. Riga, Latvia? Sofia, Bulgaria?

We were close through Ibiza!

We were eventually bound to have a season where no new countries were to be featured.

However, we have underutilized countries: Spain (No full leg ever), Turkey (1 leg), Bangladesh (1 leg), Indonesia (1 season).

leafsfan,

Where did you get your data on "no full leg ever" for Spain? Of course this depends on how you count it, but AR10 ep. 12 teams had a ROADBLOCK in Casablanca then flew to Barcelona for an exciting episode ending at Montjuic. The finale, ep. 13 started with finding Gaudi's unfinished church before flying to Paris. The way I count it that makes a full leg in Barcelona.

I look at legs as pit stop to pit stop (basically), and by that measure, we had not had a full leg in Spain, apparently, until now. Half legs, yes. But not a full leg.

Every season has that one team that I go... "Are you kidding me" in good ways. Like, never expected that kind of team, and really interested in that said team.

And then there's the beauty queen thing. I don't get the obsession with them.

I think you will get a big dose of this with Brittany & Caitlin   ;)

Just my speculation.  It will depend on the editing.   :lol:

25,000 mile is pretty WTF.

TAR 5 = 72,000 mile.

Joab, your estimate is not the remotest bit close to the real mileage for AR5. It appears that you are using either a World Race Productions source (notorious for overestimating the mileage of Amazing Races) or some other invalid source. Here are the statistics for each of the legs, using www.worldatlas.com/aatlas/infopage/howfar.htm. I am going to approach this by separating out the air miles, which I will show as statute miles at the conversion factor of 1.15 statute miles/air mile, from the fairly small ground transportation segments, which will be in statue miles to start with. One approximation which will tend to understate the air miles is that real trips involve connections at airports not on the line between the origination and destination point. I have used connecting points in only a few instances where I know them.

Here are those segments:

   Montevideo to Punta del Este                                                                                                                                                   90

     Calgary to Denver                                                                                                                                                  939

That gives me a total of 43225 air miles, which is equivalent to 49709 statute miles. Direct statute miles from ground segments total 1924. The total in statute mile equivalents is 51633, more than 20,000 miles short of 72K.
