True! :lol:

I'm thinking there won't be a memory task on the final Leg though. That's strictly my thoughts as I'm still baffled how there are zero yet discovered TAR sightings in one of the most commonly visited cities in the United States.

I'm not deactivating my luck until I know for sure. Still have my fingers crossed for Bootleg Canyon of Boulder City. :hrt:

I thought a pit stop greeter finale task was the dream?  ???
Maybe they could visit the idea of setting up the costumes of each pit stop greeter at the end?

Cool Idea. Maybe they could go to the dressing room or backstage in one of the Vegas casino's theater or something similar. However, the casinos are crowded, so maybe not....

Well, just a random thought, could the final task be the skyscrapers they visited?

I mean, in China they had Canton Tower, in Malaysia they had Petronas, and in Srilanka (if it's not a wrong sightings) they had WTCC...  :colors

That's an idea, and it's a good one, though I don't really think it's possible regarding the number of double-legs this season, which would mean low number of those skyscrapers :P

They can order it by country, I think, not only based on the number of legs. And FYI, the WTCC is also a twin tower!  ;)

In the current season of The Amazing Race, which is All-Stars. Philippines were originally to be in legs 3-4 and canceled due to last year's Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) in Leyte, earthquakes in Cebu and Bohol and military standoff in Zamboanga (a province located southwest of the country).

And it was replaced into Malaysia legs by a last minute. .
Remember Malaysia was one of the planned legs in TAR23?

Knowing that makes me understand why the Malaysian legs were a little bit lack lister in terms of the tasks used.(I didn't mind them but there was no WOW)

It also explains why it seems like the rafting wasn't fully safety-tested.

On The Amazing Race Australia 2, is there a reason why teams flew to Havana to get to the Pit Stop after going to the Parisian footbridge? I find it odd.

I found that really odd too... It was a "To be continued" leg, but still...

There was a Detour in Havana that wasn't shown, after the airport and before the nightclub. Among the other hints, teams arrive at 3:20pm (or thereabouts, my memory's fuzzy) and the nightclub is at most 22 minutes away on a straight road, yet nobody arrives until after sunset several hours later.

Do you have any more sourcing or 'evidence' on this? I'd love to add it to the wiki, but that's a little thin at the moment.
Come check out the Reality Fan Wiki! The LARGEST Amazing Race database on the internet!!! (probably)

World Trade Center in Colombo could easily just be Colombo general shots. No actual evidence of a task there...

This. :lol:

So was Guangzhou an originally planned destination? After the weird choice of tasks (midair somersaults, toy car assembly, shuttlecock vs. massage cup Detour), I feel there was no effort put into this not-so-all stars season.

So, now that we know the leg after Rome is in Orvieto, Italy, I'm looking forward to it. It appears to be a dramatic and historic location between Rome and Florence. There are lots of old castles and churches, some over 1,000 years old. Also, it appears to be a center for ceramics, lace and woodworking. I saw mention of caves and even a funicular. There should be a lot to do there. Looks like it is a small city, so that is probably why we had no sightings.

I would think with one leg at an unknown destination between Orvieto and Seville, North Africa looks like a strong possibility. Gibraltar or the French Riviera would work too.

Cleo had Bern, and now we have confirmation from the opening sequence that Bern is indeed the leg between Orvieto and Seville.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Oh well, never mind then.  :colors

At least some of my suggestions were on the right continent.  :funny:

CBS lists 4 continents and 9 countries.

continents: North America, Asia, Europe, 1 more (Africa?)

countries: USA, China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Italy, Spain, 3 more (Switzerland?, France?, eh?)

Also, where did Orvieto and Bern came from? Edit: Found Orvieto via Wikipedia. Bern?

Edit: With China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Italy having 2 legs each, and the last one reserved for the US, the last four countries would be visited within 3 legs.  :(

Orvieto came from a press release in the media thread. I'm not sure about Bern

This route isn't worthy of being All Stars to be honest. 4 double country legs in a row is just boring especially for the teams in my opinion.
