Guys? I think we missed this particularly obvious clue...

Tomas García C. ‏@tomy222  6 nov.
Wait did I just see @PhilKeoghan and @AmazingRace_CBS producers on Reforma in Mexico City??

Tomas García C. ‏@tomy222  11 nov.
On a mission to find @tyleroakley  and @koreykuhl  in mexico!  Just saw the host last week in Mexico City!! @AmazingRace_CBS

Those are not from today but might be useful for later.

So we can expect Phil to be Live Tweeting from this iconic TAR landmark!  Just a guess!

Mexico has been so under-used on the race, first visit in 25 seasons! I would love to see Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco and Chichen Itza in the future - the country is full of places to visit!

If the first destination is Mexico City and Phil will be streaming in four hours from now, it means that the first leg will be a night leg, there is no time difference between CST & Mexico Time. Because of the live event, I dont think there will be HOO.

What if they travelled to MEX independently and we'll have TAR's first official starting line outside the US? It does not make any sense to start live event from the first check point, not from the starting line.

For some reason they didn't want to split teams into only two flights, that's why Mexico is the first destination - it's easily accessible.

If teams hit the ground at 7...legs are usually <3 hours...the teams could just possibly be all checked in by live stream time.

Starting line in Mexico?

I'm reading a lot of tweets and post that say watch live starting line.
It's weird because teams have backpacks already.

There is no way we are getting a starting line in Mexico. Maybe the whole travel independently means they are booking their own flight and that's why they are not just departing from one airport

OR MAYBE...

Teams were grouped and divided at some point and to showcase the whole social media idea Phil's "GO" was done through a tv screen, phone message or a vine. So teams 1 2 3 and 4 departed from Dallas... 5 6 7 and 8 from Miami and 9 10 and 11 from LAX... just the wildest of guesses though... Not likely because then you get different starting times and that could get messy but is an idea...

Perhaps a totally different era. Erin and Joslyn may have posted a video from the airport they are at. I can't view it right now, but I'll post the link and let you tell me.

OK. Thanks. That was too good to be true. I'll have to go to where I can view videos. I'll have to do that before the live stream anyway.

I think you are right. perhaps the first VIRTUAL START?

If there was not some sort of time-staged release, then teams leaving directly from LAX had a significant advantage in not having to travel an extra 5+ hours.

That could have taken place very early this AM or even late last night. ... say from UCLA somewhere....

I'm gonna speculate what's going on here. I think the teams have been divided into groups of 3, each to different airports. From there, Phil send them a message to book flights and meet him in Mexico City at wherever. That's where the race starts. Explains why Erin is still tweeting, and the confusion over "first destination" and "starting line".

MIA, DFW, ATL all have flights to Guadalajara, but that doesn't match previous tweets about Mexico City, unless they (unlikely)
connect to MEX. LAX does fly to MEX. Confused.

The message has been really confusing official sources say starting line and they already on the move to Mexico so that should discard the starting line that is always on the states.

I don't know... my head hurts... I'll just wait... we are almost there...

I know we've been speculating that Mexico is first destination and not starting line (mostly per Phil's tweet), but how do we explain away the title of the live stream: "Don't Miss The Amazing Race 28 Starting Line Live Stream Event! Grab a front-row seat to watch the new socially savvy cast kick-off their first leg." ?

I guess we'll have to wait and see...

Okay, I'm confused as well. :funny: I'll just wait and see.

While waiting, I'll watch what these racers have on the Internet. :)
