Is it confirmed that Leg 1 was NEL or elimination?
Elimination.
:'( :'( :'( :'( :'( I would've never thought that NaNa would be first to be eliminated.

I wonder if there was a starting line task which determined which teams got on which flight.

One factor which IMHO indicates this is the wording in the extra information sheet weihen posted earlier. It said "First flight (Teams with Cathay Pacific ticket jacket)". To me this sounds as if teams received tickets instead of picking them up at the counter. Or, and more likely, they received empty ticket jackets in the starting line challenge and then had to pick up their real tickets at the counter on the airport.

Taipei and Hong Kong were also connecting cities, is it possible to rule them out from next location likely visited? ???

Thanks Weihen and david10208! Really amazing work! I would love to see them racing live!
Would they come to Hong Kong after Guangzhou? If they do I really have to track them down!!

Please note that 12h is not a rigidly followed rule any more, although it does happen more often on the first Pit Stop of each season.

For TAR 23 we've had:
12h (Iquique), ~26h (Santiago), ~13h (Lisbon), 0h (Svolvaer), ~16h (Sopot), ~14h (Vienna), and ~21h (Abu Dhabi).
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

The mothership TAR no longer has a set time period of 12 hours for the mandatory rest period between legs. The amount of time between arriving teams adjusted for any unannounced penalties and credits will be maintained to release teams for the next leg,

I just noticed the team that was on pretty much everybody's wishlist to comeback for a possible All-Star season is the first one to go... That's ironic.  :funny:

Sounds like this first leg was very challenging and I hope it's a sign of things to come. As it's an all stars type season it goes without saying that it should be harder.

I can tell this is going to be a great season! Hard Tasks. Exciting Teams and some close calls! We had one last night and it was only the first leg!

As much as People are going to complain about the cast, I reckon this season will be the most challenging the race has done and it will especially be if the Race is long.

I agree, I think we need to accept the cast as it is and move on so we can look forward to the locations/challenges/races. Hopefully there will be a lot more close legs. The only thing is I think when the legs increase in difficulty some of the teams will fall by the wayside leaving the teams who are stronger at the tasks left standing (i.e. the cowboys) and no one wants that...

Ikr. People on sucks are like " This is probably the worst season ever " or "This is the worst cast ever " or " This is the worst all-stars season ever"
Just because the twinnies got eliminated last night and YouTube didn't. If YouTube didn't get eliminated everyone would be like " What a great start to this season " It's pathetic. I can tell this season is probably gonna be one of the best competition wise we have ever had. I mean look at the teams. They all finished within 1 hour and 30 mins. It's seriously going to be season to watch.

I'm new to this whole tracking the race as it goes thing. I understand how it's easier to track the leg when it begins in the US but how quickly is it possible to track the teams when they start a new leg (e.g. how quickly do we know when the leg has started/where the teams are heading next?).

It looks like a strong group.  I would imagine that Caroline and Jen will have a tough go, being the only all female team, but rooting for them anyway.

They are a somewhat strong group but as soon as the leg comes where you have to navigate throught a city will be the death of them.

Just because you don't like the teams doesn't mean the season or the teams are horrible. You don't know them .
