TAR 25 Speculation and Discussion **of Spoilers**
« on: May 23, 2014, 03:16:28 AM »
This thread is the WORKZONE of the spoilers.
This is where ALL the spoiler speculation/discussion of the TAR 25 race goes, NOT in the LIVE thread. It is where we try to thrash out what the LIVE sightings mean.
 

 
 
As always, per RFF's practices, we do not spoil the start location (if known) or any teams until it is believed that the teams are safely underway. We would never want to put a team in jeopardy or cause them distress or interfere with the actual running of the race. Info on future legs may also occasionally be protected for those reasons. But if you have info to share beforehand , we would love to know, so please PM or email me! Spoilers are treasured!
 
This thread will be opened once the race has actually begun.
"I can't speak for production, but I really like that people see us when we're traveling around the world. If you're a fan of the show, ... you're going to be more excited because you want to see what happens."Phil Keoghan

Teams were also asking fans at the start line... most likely, it is Flushing Meadows Park, with a clue saying "Make your way to the location of the first finish line in The Amazing Race history" or something similar.
You are the last team to arrive.
This is a Philmination leg, so I'm sorry to tell you that you have been Philiminated from the race.

Nice, 5 m/f, 4 f/f, 2 m/m. first time ever that they split the teams like this. From seasons 18-24, 3 of them had 5 m/f, 4 m/m and 2 f/f, and another one had 4 m/f, 5 m/m and 2 f/f!!!!

From memory (since it was the main team I was looking at) Keithney seemed to run right pass the crowd and down, so I wonder if they possibly knew the answer to that clue already? ???
1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

At least 5 teams (from the video) asked the nearby audience where the first Race ended. :funny:

Looking at JFK departs and it looks like we are going to London or somewhere in Central America/Caribbean.

Can someone double-check the terminal as well? T4 has the same pillars as T2...

Delta operates out of Terminal 2 and 4, I think it reads T2 All Gates on the yellow sign...

If it's Terminal 2 All Gates - then Delta Airlines has a 7am flight departing JFK for San Juan, Puerto Rico...fits the description, no?...

JetBlue Airways then has a flight departing at 7:38 from Terminal 5 to San Juan

And around 8:35am there are several flights to San Juan from Terminal 8.

T2 serves exclusively domestic flights. If it is T2 then they're either headed to San Juan, or connecting through Florida to somewhere else?

Are all the teams on a flight now?

Also, how does everyone know they are flying to the Caribbean? They could have just had transfers via Boston and fly into Europe.

Phil mentioned they had to go to a sandy location....

The navy blue team with the muscular guy look like a married couple.

:hearts: Also, I get Charla & Mirna and Lyn & Karlyn vibes from Shelley & Neecy (African-American mother & daughter duo)! :hearts:

Check on the Sightings. The teams were boarding flights to St. Thomas.
