What were the 20 cities I only got 14

New York
St. Thomas
London
Oxford
Aberdeen
Lerwick
Copenhagen
Malmö
Marrakech
Palermo
Valletta
Singapore
Manila
& LA

Scalloway, Scotland might be included in the city count, even though it's only a small town of ~1000 people.
Amizmiz, Morocco might be counted as a city, as it is a town with ~10,000 people.
The municipalities of Rosario and Naic might also be counted in the city count, even though they're a part of the Manila Metro area???

That's 18 if we include those. I think WRP might include small and/or obscure towns to inflate the city count   :cmaslol
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.

What are the envelopes for?  Are they a random elimination like by the luck of the draw?

Why would an elimination EVER be random?

The envelope probably has some route info or something that can only be opened in LA.
Maybe it's something like the boxes/chests from the TAR 24 finale.

What I meant but did not verbalize was that do 3 envelopes say perhaps "go right" and one says "go left" and that these were handed out randomly?  No worse a thought than others that have bee expressed here over the years.

Nope. Nada. The feds would have a hissyfit because of the rules that govern the show. I wish people would get it. TPTB cannot manipulate the competition in the way some have suggested ever since this twist became apparent. The only new thing is that the final elimination is taking place in the middle somewhere of the final leg, after some tasks, and before any final tasks on the way to the finish line. Thinking they're going to manipulate things somehow iis not gonna happen.

I THINK that maybe the last team to finish the Candy glass jump could be the one eliminated. Or before...

We did not see a 4th team in the boats or the water and they are showing only 3 teams at the container...so it is def before those tasks...
which leaves only the drive to get a clue or the candy glass jump as the elim point. AND we did see Phil briefly at the Jump so that was either a stand up...or an elim.

Just my guess though....

My guess on the envelopes (and that's all it is a guess) is that they're going to play into a clue that they get at some point after arriving in LA.  I could see them getting to a clue box and having the clue instruct them to open the envelope or having the person at a task asking if they have their envelope and then telling them to open it instead of giving them a clue.  It's probably some riddle, picture or map that they have to figure out on the fly.  If they opened it at the airport or wherever before getting on the plane that would have given them the chance to find a computer to try to figure it out which would take the fun out of it for us.  Of course there is an equally likely, if not greater, possibility that I'm completely off base and it's nowhere even close to any of that.

Regarding the final elimination. They could borrow and adjust an idea from TARAU3 and have a memory task on the final flight. Teams would get a written test about the race to complete while airborne. The team with the worst result is eliminated when they land.

I think the manila envelope has something to do with the Candy Glass Jump. I noticed they are wearing a satchel when they jump. Seems like a good think to hold that envelope.

I think the shot of Phil was at the Swim Task location.

My guesses :

1 - The Manila envelope contains the place where Phil will eliminate the 4th place team.
OR
2 - The Manila envelope must be opened to help/describe/something to do with/ the final task?

The view is to the north but they are driving south! 

They are crossing Century Blvd.  Which is odd considering you can't get there from the LAX terminal parking!   :cmas18

This picture Shows the LA City Hall on the right.
 


So maybe our spec about Manhatten Beach City Hall is wrong and they DO go here? That could be the official business.

The only prob is we didn't think (based on our sightings) that they had TIME to get there...

It's a cool memory task from the looks of it! Also would the glass jump be a roadblock?
