And saying yet again...while we do really THINK (based om good information) that the Philippines and Melbourne were supposed to be around this time...please do not state that this was an absolute...this will prob never be confirmed 100%. Just like TAR 11....

 :( Too bad we can't do anything to confirm it.

Are you referring to the alleged replacement of Mt. Kilimanjaro with Zanzibar?

With the Geneva pic posted by Phil, does that mean we have teams drive from Geneva to Lucerne? To me it seems like a long unnecessary drive when Zurich is closer. Is this feasible?

We're talking about classic Ford Mustangs, y'all. It depends on whether Ford owns them, or if they're from private collectors.

The insurance premiums would be massive on classic cars like those.

There was an interesting news item about the Ford Mustang on the news tonight.

50 years ago, Ford engineers disassembled a yellow 1965 Mustang and reassembled it on the observation deck of the Empire State Building and invited the media to photograph it. They repeated this photo op today, with a yellow 2015 Mustang.

Now we can see that Ford was planning ahead, since this Mustang appearance on TAR was perfectly timed to this same week. That's pretty amazing planning. (pun intended.)

It's been a bit weird not seeing any U-Turns for 7 episodes, so I kinda thought that maybe they just cut 1 from the edit because no one used it? And I think I read someone throwing this out there, but now I think it's pretty clear that this wasn't the case from JJ's exit interview:

Quote
EJ P: If given the opportunity, would you guys run the race again? And would you have a different strategy/mindset?
John:
Yes, for sure. The race really is a once in a lifetime opportunity so the fact that we got to run it twice is so cool. We'd be humbled if we got the chance to do it again and we definitely would. If we did get to do round 3 we'd probably be U-turning people like crazy. Haha, just kidding, we've actually never even seen a U-turn board. Anyways, if we got to do it a third time we'd be married by then! So maybe that's been the missing link this whole time. I bet we'd take it if we ran it as newlyweds.

Cool cars!  I suspect the local Mustang Car clubs supplied the classic cars.  :yess:

Maybe we can match the cars to the club photos.

Mustang Club of Switzerland

Mustang Club of Italy

The Ford Mustang clubs worldwide

Edited to add:   :hoot: Yep, it's the Mustang Club of Switzerland cars:

Rene Sutter's 1965 Rangoon Red Convertible

Freddy van Moos' 1971 Lime Green Boss 351

Paul Piston's 1967 Sautern Gold Hardtop GTA Louis de-Rooji's 1967 Silver Frost Hardtop  :-[

Peter Lanz's 1966 Custom Blue Shelby GT 350

(maybe) Stefan Moser's 1969 Winter Blue Mach 1 (but the air dam does not match the club photo)  :groan:

Also if you Google GD Saconnex, it comes up with things such as a basketball team in Switzerland :)

Just got this from twitter recently:

@PhilKeoghan: "Happy 50th!" to #FordMustang50 proud to work with @Ford on #AmazingRace pic.twitter.com/J9ezOE9e5s

Gd Saconnex (Grand Saconnex) is a municipality in Geneva btw. It is shown at the road sign on the right. Where were they going?

You've been duped! :snicker:



Swiss Museum of Transport, Lucerne

I hope that's a task site that would make Big Easy take another 4-hour penalty.  :funny:

Well we have confirmation of only 3 continents. Liverpool and Wales are the final leg. Although I'm happy to see Wales finally, it shouldn't be wasted on this "all star" season.

I mean, if I was just looking at the countries, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Italy, Spain & UK (Wales!!) really make up a good route in my opinion. Only that all those double legs ruined the first half and a lot of the tasks were.... disappointing. But had this been a route for a regular season, I wouldn't be complaining as much, especially if there were no doubles in either of China or Sri Lanka. I mean, both of those double legs could've been merged into single legs.

Overall it's just so NOT an All-Stars route :tantrum

I agree that there was no need for two legs in China, but one was a replacement leg.
However, I LOVED the two Sri Lanka legs and I think that TAR should go to Sri Lanka more often.

I'm not exactly sure where to put this, but the title for Episode 10 is "Bull Down".

Since I know that there will be U-Turn in Leg 10, and in the last U-Turn, the Afghanimals is uses to U-Turning Cowboys in first or last slot(?). Since Brenchel and Cancer are already used the U-Turn, maybe Country have been used to U-Turn other team or not. As you know, Cowboys are eliminated in leg 10.  :groan: :groan:  :res: :res:
Come on watch my race (Lemontail's The Amazing Race 1) currently going on here!

The Europe portion of this race actually has some pretty good destinations. That said, the six legs in Asia will really drag down future opinion of the race.

I found this quote on Wikipedia:

In the original CBS press release, the race was planned to travel in four continents, through nine countries and 35,000 miles. The reason for the route modification was not disclosed.

I don't know if I can put this here...

The Bubble Bull it seems a Detour.

We can see Brenchel & Cowboys in Bubble Bull.
We can see Connor & Jamal doing Shave Ballons (RB) also.
Country singers don't appear.

I think Bubble Bull is a race across the streets and it's plenty with other random bulls who try to beat the teams. xD

One question... No SpeedBump in this All-Stars? :(

https://www.facebook.com/amazingrace/posts/10152375836184941?stream_ref=10 Great news! David Copperfield, Las Vegas's most renown illusionist, is one of our VIP guests in this season's finale. If he can't "appear" to turn this season around, nobody can. :hearts:

Behind Phil and Copperfield, there is a construction crane, a fire truck with its crew, an engulfed "bowl" of some sort, and a table-like machine or grid. I'm unsure if this is the task itself or the stage set-up/maintenance for the challenge.

As for the location, the two iconic icons are standing left across from the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. Also, the only way we are able to see the MGM neon sign, palm trees, and buildings at that specific angle and a fire truck on the right at the same time is if we were standing on a multi-level PARKING GARAGE. My first hunch is the self-parking garage at the Tropicana Hotel & Casino on East Tropicana or Monte Carlo Hotel & Casino's parking garage behind a CVS pharmacy. Sorry, I'm awful at exact locations, but any info is better than no info.

the title of the last episode of TAR 24 seems that The Cowboys will be on the final 3 but hopefully the country girls will make it there and win it. :hug?:

Cool find Rachel.  I have a slightly different take on where Phil & David are.  That's the rear view of the MGM Grand (where the Porte Couche entrance is), along with the (east) Tropicana tower, and the building with the red signage is the Hooters Casino.  So that would put then around E. Reno Ave at Giles St.  The map explains all (sorry for the large size, but there's a lot of info).  But then again I may be wrong.   ;)
