I'm so sure I can say it's impossible. There's a task before the schoolyard pick, which has to take a good deal of airtime and then the schoolyard pick is another few minutes. And I HOPE that they introduce the individuals before hand. So they definitely won't air the season intro halfway through the first hour (or even later).

Maybe they will introduce the racers as they finish the first task and pick their partner. That would be awfully long though.
Maybe introduce all 22 at once, that would also be long, but not as long. wait until to see.
Hopefully they will do a long intro we can watch online first.

Maybe they'll run the intro in normal edition after the schoolyard pick?

That what I think they will do. Go straight into the task at the gallery and then do the schoolyard park and then as they move to LAX, do the intro. This should be about 30 minutes in.

1 win and 7 losses. 109 point loss. Sigh, back to old times...

However, that's with normal seasons, with 11 teams. This has 22 indivuals, with tasks before they become teams. It's going to be very interesting to see where the intro is put...

I can see this season having an introduction where Phil first explains the twist with emphasis on "teams becoming individuals", next shows 11 of the individuals in their hometown, and then proceeds into the race with their potluck partner further introducing the other half of the racers. Hopefully this will be a 2-hour premiere and not a measly one hour. The new team intro during season 27 might have an influence on this perhaps for time's sake because I can't remember an example of one competition that has had more than 20 different individualized players to show off and that seems extremely time-consuming. Unless it's actually Survivor that has reached this milestone?? I don't know. Haven't invested myself to watch that show thoroughly in eons.

Also, with this type of team format, I am interested in what kind of team relationship or Twitter tag the editors will try to portray.

Alright, then that should leave enough time to get the introductions done and have a good leg.

In all honesty, CBS is just idiotic. Their ratings on FRIDAY are better than their actual SUNDAYS.

Excited that the season is finally being shown. Just went through the pictures in my phone, and they were from June 2016, so the season will conclude almost a year after it started to be shot. Barely.

In the promo Ashton uploaded on her Instagram, we see Jenn and Kevin self-driving. Since I saw it was said that teams took a taxi to LAX, does this mean we have self-driving in Panama?  :conf:

Nice catch!

It would be our first self-driving premiere since TAR20 :o

I recognise the bridge that had the bungee jump. I'm pretty sure it was at the Corinth Canal from Season 9.

So the mountain climbing is probably either Tanzania or Norway?

Only Mountain climbing I remember from Tanzania would be Mt Kilimanjaro...it is mostly plains.

As my gut thinks that the mountain climbing is probably Vietnam because Ninh Binh has limestone rocks.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

Problem is that we saw Liz and Michael doing it, who are believed to be eliminated before Ninh Binh

After watching the 1st episode, I checked the timeline thread.

What happened to Seth & Olive!? :o :ascared :gnome Hmmm... possible 9th place curse. Perhaps they were that much of a threat?

So Francesca & Jessie were the defaulted ones. I'll only see next week whether that had an impact on their elimination or not.

Since I know F3 spoiler, Tara choosing Joey was such a good choice! :bunny I like how she thought that just because he finished last doesn't mean he's a bad partner. Well, I'll see how their race will go later on, but from underdog first impression to F3? Wow!

It's interesting to see how LoLo are staying low for the 1st 2 legs. ??? I wonder if it was a strategy that paid off.

With 3 W-turns this season, I think the stronger teams got their boots there. I'll only know when the W-turn episodes air, but right now that's just my guess.

One of the U-turns has a plate of baklava next to it, so I'm pretty sure there is a U-Turn in Greece
