Oh! I should have missed the teams.
I arrived at the double uturn board at 15:30 and all teams should have passed that checkpoint :(

He called it CBS's Amazing Race, but no, they normally film in the summer and winter. Too early.

I'm a bit late to the party, but here's some info from the first leg in Victoria BC on Sunday, April 27th.

The teams went Skydiving, 3 teams at a time, one member from each team. They departed in the AM from the Victoria Airport and the drop Zone was at Willows beach. Teams arrived at willows beach starting around 11 am and through until 1:30 or so. From there, the teams took a taxi to the Empress Hotel in the Victoria inner harbour where there was a clue box. The team did a roadblock in the hotel. One team member dressed as a waiter. Maybe serving High Tea in the Empress tea room.

From there, they got onto what looked like Canadian navy Zodiac inflatable boats and headed toward Esquimalt/Colwood. They did some sort of a task at the navy training center where they train firefighting and flood control on the navy ships.

From there, they went to the pit stop at the Fisgard lighthouse located at the Fort Rodd Hill national park. I think the first team was finished around 2 pm and the last around 5:30 pm.

Here are a few pictures:

Willows beach teams.

Welcome to RFF, Victoria_grub!

 :bigwelcome


Great pictures! They should really give us a good look at some of the teams and help identify them. Thank you very much for sharing them with us.

Here's a picture of the pit-stop of the first leg in Victoria BC on Sunday, April 27th.

According to the person that sent me this picture, the team shown in the picture (both wearing red) appeared to be the first team to finish. He said they re-shot the arrival about 5 times. The team would run from about 20 feet away, jump onto the mat and throw their hands up. Probably standard for a reality show.

The girl in the first image of this post: http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,29939.msg997909.html#msg997909

Appears to be wearing a discontinued Toronto Raptors basketball hat. Note that Toronto is spelled across the hat.

I saw them around 7:45pm to 8:30pm 4/5, one young couple and black and white couple were the last two teams i saw.
I thought the hotel would be a hotel in Taipa, as they were in Macau Peninsula.
As most of the famous hotels in Macau Peninsula are near Senado Square. It will so stupid for the teams to take a taxi to the place that they can walk to.

Quoting this here from the excellent article by Chris Jancelewicz (Which also includes a lovely shoutout to Izad and FTHJIL!!)
 

Quote
A HuffPost Canada reader (who has chosen to remain anonymous), currently in
Australia, wrote into the newsroom with the following tip:

"I'm traveling for work and happened across a Canadian team for
supposedly the Australian show (overheard staff at the clue box - wanting to
keep it top secret), but reviewing the video and photos I took the clue envelope
clearly reads "The Amazing Race Canada" (1 - 10 sec video, 2 photos of the red
team, 2 of the blue team running thru a crowd, 1 poor picture of the clue
box)."


Wanting to be certain, HuffPost Canada contacted
CTV to find out whether the international travel news is true. CTV Networks'
Senior Publicity Manager Jim Quan had this to say: "We can’t confirm or comment
on anything related to the taping of Season 2 of 'The Amazing Race Canada.'
Specific destinations won’t be revealed until closer to broadcast. You’ll have
to stay tuned! Please note that anything you hear is speculation/rumour."

While it is possible he saw them in HK or Macau, Aus is def a possibility based on the "currently in Australia" comment!

In other words, a Family Edition-style route where they briefly left the country then came right back? Please no :(

In ref to the above article, AUSTRALIA is NOT correct. Sighting was in HK. Pics to come!

From James E: Taken in Hong Kong May 3

"Saturday morning I was walking along the Avenue of the Stars, it's a board walk
on the Kowloon / Tism Sha Tsui waterfront"


Quote
"Two girls in matching red shirts with “CANADA” across the chest, black
leggings, and coordinated red back packs were really moving"

Quote
"The clue box and challenge was right beside the Bruce Lee statue, so I did what
any fan would do, and pulled out my iPhone to take a video of the team doing the
challenge and snap a couple quick pictures. It was a simple task on the surface
(simply copy the pose of the Bruce Lee statue, and take a couple of directions
from a “director” in front of a fake camera (with their camera man recording)
before receiving their next clue. They quickly finished the task got the clue
with the stereotypical tear open moment and were off – the whole thing lasted
maybe two minutes."

Quote
"A couple hours later I was walking back along the same route, this time
keeping my eyes open but doubting any other teams would be that far behind, but
not far from the Bruce Lee Statute I saw another all male team, in blue running
toward me – probably having completed the task. I quickly juggled the phone and
got another couple rough pictures. I stopped by the clue box and snuck a photo
as the staff tending it was requesting that people didn’t take photo’s of the
box (but were not very successful given that they were in prime picture
territory for the harbor view). I heard the staff mention that they were with
the Australian version of the show and didn’t think twice about it."
