Hi Peach,

Was not sure where to post this. We were in Barbados for Spring Break one of the women working as a tour guide said that she would be working on 30 March for the Amazing Race. Is this the USA version?

The 30th is the TAR 29 Premiere. ??? But sadly TAR 30 is not yet casted or filming. I'll ask around!

Have a report from a member about a tour guide schedule to help "Amazing Race" in Barbados March 30. Any ideas on who might be filming or scouting now?? Not us...

Please let me know asap!

There is a sighting of some supposed TAR filming here in Villa de Leyva just outside Bogota, Colombia.

Dunno how legit it is, especially since there isn't any photo evidence w/ a camera crew. But a leg there on the 3/28 would tie in nicely with a leg in Barbados on the 3/30... maybe just something to keep a lookout for :spy:

Judging from the picture, if they were contestants charging for pictures, I'd guess it was a Latin American version.

Maybe she meant Simón Bolívar. The guy was dressed in an appropriate costume.

It could be a new franchise. Maybe the Ecuador edition is back and more regionally ambitious. Maybe it's a Pekin Express version, though it doesn't seem like they would be dressing teams up and having them try to raise money through picture taking.

Only TAR I'm aware of that would have been filming at the moment is Vietnam, from that Instagram picture I posted a month ago with the logo and "October 2017". But that's probably wrapped up by now.

With the report of teams carrying a Travelocity Gnome, (US Sponsor) makes me think perhaps a local race? Against that is "bullet train".

As anyone thought that it could be TAR Japan?

Could it be someone watching Season 20?

I don't remember if they had the travelocity gnomes in the Japan leg, but they did race through both Hiroshima and Osaka that leg.

They even traveled via train FROM Hiroshima TO Osaka during that leg.

Someone's son reportedly saw two people on the bullet train to Osaka a couple of days ago grabbing their gnome from an overhead compartment. BUT there was no camera crew with them...so am assuming someone was doing their own journey.

The original season of the Ukrainian Amazing Race aired on the 1+1 channel back in 2013. The host was Fozzy (a rapper) and the article mentions Fozzy and a band, so it all fits together nicely.

I've been going back and watching versions of TAR that I never got around to watching in the past and just finished all the TAR Asia seasons. I see that TAR Ukraine season 1 is on Youtube so maybe I'll try that next. The episodes are 1 hour 45 minutes long and in Ukrainian with no subtitles, so it'll be a challenge to follow.
Season 2 was orginally planned to be filmed in early 2014, but this plan was canceled due to Euromaidan broke out and Russia annexed Crimea peninsular

TAR China? There's been no big announcement about it but still...

Highly unlikely to be TAR Asia, but you just NEVER know!
