So can we assume Cowboys, Afghanimals, Country, Brenchel and Father/Son are the F5 per the live sightings?

WinTar, I don't think we can make such an assumption on the current information available. At best, you could offer it as a hypothesis, but that alone is not proof and shouldn't be used as a fact.
We need to find more data, along the lines several of us have been pointing out, to help evaluation all possible explanations, and not just that one.

You can assume they were NOT on the sequester flight. :tup:

Now that we know that teams 4, 5 and 6 tagged along for the final legs rather than heading to sequester, some of the sightings of teams hanging around at the pit stop may not be as meaningful as we've been thinking.

Team #6 was at sequester. Teams #4 and #5 have continued following production for most races, not just this one.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Which means they were most likely still in the Race.  In the case of Brendon & Rachel, I have only one thing to say:  Damn!

I think we're lucky enough with Brenchel not getting eliminated in 8th. Now I tend to believe they were decoying in Seville... :/

Or eliminated there.  Although I wish they were out earlier, if Brendon & Rachel get eliminated before the finals I'll take it.

Based on the fact that those six teams have been spotted flying from Thailand to Seoul, we can assume that Sequesterville was in Thailand.
Also, knowing that Twinnies, M/M, and Youtube were eliminated before Leg 5, an assuming that Margie & Luke were eliminated in Sri Lanka, and that the Globetrotters were at the Pit Stop with the Afghanimals, we can assume that the John & Jessica were eliminated in 7th in Rome, meaning that the Globetrotters were eliminated in 6th somewhere between Rome and Seville.

I had a hunch KL was last minute, because alcohol in a conservative Muslim country seemed odd. I hope it wasn't Laos that wasn't cancelled again.

Really think it is The Philippines that got cancelled. China Leg 2 seemed like a last minute addition too. Imagine if 2 Philippines legs were cancelled in the last minute. :cmas4

To me, it looks like ALMOST ALL the Legs were replacements. :lol3:

China (2x), Italy, and Spain... did they seriously pretend to run out of all-stars worthy destinations like Zanzibar, Tanzania and Argentina? This season's route looks rather plain.

I'll be rather disappointed if the rumours of Switzerland as Legs 8 and 9 turn out to be true. I like Switzerland but it is becoming one of those over-used countries that just feels the same each time it is visited. It sort of feels to me like the route of the season involves going to places rarely visited or cities in Countries that have never been visited and Switzerland seems out of place.

Also with the Italy leg, Would it be possible for a task to be in Vatican City? A Fast Forward or just a Active Route Info? There was an unused Fast Forward in Vatican City in Season 1.

In the case of Margie and Luke, what could they have done? "If" my hypothesis is true, they could have gotten on the standby list at the airport for the flight everyone else was on and probably got on the flight when the travel agency returned the 4 unbooked seats to the airline. That would have taken guts. They would have had to pass up those earlier flights to Singapore. In race mode with adrenaline flowing, patience is not likely possibility.

They did, Dr Rox.

Malaysian Airlines finally beckoned for Margie and Luke. They were sent to the airline office to speak to the "boss," who got into a tiff with Petr over him filming them in the office. Barred outside the room (but with the airline lady not knowing they had hidden microphones), Petr shot the scene from behind the glass window and hiding behind some potted plants. Jerry didn't have quite as much work. He put on his headphones and waited outside the office, listening to their every word.

Half an hour ensued. The result: nothing.

Okay, my bad. I guess I have the time frame messed up in my head. I thought M/L had already left for Singapore before the direct flight was ready to board. Now I realize that I don't even really kno0w just how or when M/L flew to Sri Lanka. Did they wait till the morning direct flight to Sri Lanka. I can imagine the office discussion was trying to get the seats at the travel agency released to M/L at the airport. There must have been other people already on the standby list ahead of M/L that got those seats. I wonder how far down the list M/L actually were.

Thx Jobby

No worries! Basically, the only thing Neobie could have done was to just convince them to get onto the first flight to Singapore and they will perhaps, be able to catch the flight that Brendon and Rachel were on. (The Jetstar? flight that they were on standby on and held the tickets for the next 15 mins) But then again, there was a really tight connection and really, anything could have happened. But usually, there is hardly a delay for Jetstar/AirAsia flights on the SG-KL route. :(

But Margie didn't want to fly to Singapore without any confirmed flight to Colombo. :(

I think the order we tried was:

MH 179 from Kuala Lumpur to Colombo: 2305-2359 (delayed to 0029-0128), full

3K 688 from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore: 2125-2225
SQ 468 from Singapore to Colombo: 2305-0015, full

3K 688 from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore: 2125-2225
EK 349 from Singapore to Colombo: 0030-0140, couldn't book tickets online before 3K flight closed

AK 1823 from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore: 2205-2305, couldn't get to other terminal in time
EK 349 from Singapore to Colombo: 0030-0140

MH 609 from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore: 2310-0005
EK 349 from Singapore to Colombo: 0030-0140, too tight a connection

MH 180 from Kuala Lumpur to Chennai: 2215-2330, full
9W 252 from Chennai to Colombo: 0055-0210

UL 319 from Kuala Lumpur to Colombo: 0850-0945, full

Final decision (?)
D7 180 from Kuala Lumpur to Colombo: 0920-1010 (delayed to 1047-1134)
