There is a Starting Line Task. But the two things have nothing to do with each other. :tup:

To be honest, if it's an Allstars (TARUB - 23), I'm surprised they didn't choose Gary and Mallory over Margie and Luke, not because Margie and Luke are not memorable.. but, Gary and Mallory made a huge impression on UB.

There are a LOT of teams I would have rather seen tbh.

Regarding this season's cast, I'm only happy to see five of the teams. :res:

So much more good choices from the other seasons ESPECIALLY TAR 19. TAR 19 snub is seriously ugh.

Bill and Cathi should of been asked to return! I can understand why Amarcus didn't come back and same with Snowboarders/Jeremy and Sandy but they were a great team who I think would of done well. Out of all the non three timers, the only odd pick from TAR 22 was Jessica/John.
I'm pretty sure Bill & Cathi were one of the originally invited teams (the probable reason why there are so many Unfinished Business returnees), but I do remember Cathi stating she is a college instructor who also works her & Bill's ranch. Plus, the all-stars II filming was during school days so Cathi had no choice but to decline. They ran the race in the summer for TAR19. For casting, we have to think how the team would take the call. Not how we would.

There's no way Jeremy & Sandy would have been invited back. They are probably one of the least memorable dating teams yet. I can't even remember one placement they got before the finale.

Based on one of the promos, we see Cord and Jessica jumping with local dancers and trying to grab the flag of Sabah. We also see Cord rappelling off the Kiansom waterfall. They both seem like Roadblock tasks, but Cord is doing both, so it's not likely. Maybe the jumping is a Route Info task or Detour option, since they have the gnome in the rappelling and it seems odd to have both team members get the gnome.

There's another reason why they weren't invited back:

Sandy and Jeremy wanted to share their happiness with you all!!

Welcome to the world, Peyton Grace!!

Well, that could be a reason for them to DECLINE, but I don't think CBS even called them :P Anyway, it doesn't even matter, 'cause obviously they're not on and should not be worried about :lol:

Something that somewhat surprises me. If they are billing it as All Stars again why not invite back a winning team? I'm sure teams like Ernie & Cindy and Josh & Brent would happily race again if they needed another team to take part. Either of those two would be better than Jess and John  :funny: Unless they are planning something for Season 25.

According to Wikipedia, this Season spans 35,000 miles, the same as last season. While I find it highly unlikely that this race could have as long of a route, it got me thinking.

We have several days between leg 7 in Rome and leg 10 in Seville. We also know that a fourth "mystery" continent was visited at some point on the race. From this information, I am suspecting that a country in West Africa was visited for two legs, with a possible NEL/TBC in the middle.

Also, the press release stated that there will be nine countries visited, of which we only currently know six: China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Italy, Spain, and USA. The remaining three must each have their own leg, or one leg must visit two countries. My guess for the leg 11 is probably somewhere in west Europe, such as England/Wales/France/etc.

All of this is just speculation. Feel free to discuss.

I also think there will be 2 countries visited on 1 leg at some point deeper into the race. :hoot: I think it might be a small minor country like Andorra. Oh and btw, UB did that for leg 9 - they visited Liechtenstein, but went on to Switzerland for the detour & pitstop. ;)

???

As we all know, Bopper started the race. He was replaced last minute by Mallory. Pretty straightforward. And exactly what Chateau reported from the start line.

Seriously?? :o
I knew Bopper had been asked, but never realised how far into planning he was. I thought he pulled out once he was asked, and they just used Mallory instead.

It'll be interesting to see whether CBS release an updated cast photo featuring Mallory, or what way they'll work it.  ???

Thanks for the clarification! Today is the first day since November that I've got time to browse RFF for updated info.  :'( I haven't even got to watch the preview yet!!  :iok I'm so out of the season 24 loop, but going to fix that now  :yess: And I agree, it does explain the starting line drama!

ASSUMING WIKIPEDIA'S 100% ACCURACY. i doubt it would have visited a new country since the information is not leaked. Amazing race always releases information about new country being visited before airings, unless it didn't have a new country.

i think there would be two possibilities,
first, leg 8 or leg 9 being an african leg and europe as penultimate
or
leg 8 and 9 were in europe and a penultimate in south america ( just like UB )
i would've preferred the first scenario though :D

I'd prefer the first scenario tho. It's been a while South America as a Penultimate Le. Europe was just in Season 22 as a Penultimate Leg  :res:

In all likelihood, we have two legs in Africa, unless either Morocco/Tunisia/etc. was visited. In any case, Africa is most likely our fourth continent.

Here are a few ideas for possible routes for the second half of the season:

leg 7: Sri Lanka -> Italy
leg 8: Italy -> West Africa
leg 9: West Africa
leg 10: West Africa -> Spain
leg 11: Spain -> UK/France
leg 12: UK/France -> USA

leg 7: Sri Lanka -> Italy
leg 8: Italy -> North Africa
leg 9: North Africa
leg 10: North Africa -> Spain
leg 11: Spain -> UK/France
leg 12: UK/France -> USA

leg 7: Sri Lanka -> Italy
leg 8: Italy -> Central Europe
leg 9: Central Europe -> North Africa
leg 10: North Africa -> Spain
leg 11: Spain -> UK/France
leg 12: UK/France -> USA

leg 9: Central Europe -> North Africa
leg 10: North Africa -> Spain
leg 11: Spain -> UK/France
leg 12: UK/France -> USA

Even if it was the case that Africa was visited in between Italy and Spain, there can't be a double leg there as that would still only be 8 countries.

There could still be a double leg in Africa if a different leg has two countries visited, similar to Leg 9 of season 18. Also, there could be two African legs in a row in different countries as Africa is not a country.

What about Italy -> Morocco -> Gibraltar -> Sevilla (Spain)? Gibraltar is a country and Morocco isss in Africa. Gibraltar is also very close to Sevilla and Morocco. ;-)

Nice map Don Task! :D However, technically Gibraltar isn't a sovereign country as it is a British Overseas Territory. I also thought that there were two confirmed legs in Italy...

Woo... thanks. Indeed there's a leg in Africa, probably Morocco between Italy and Spain.

Let's check the times and dates people saw teams in Italy and Seville, Spain. That will probably give me an idea on flight (or ferry) possibilities as well as if other North/West Africa countries could fit the route.
