I don't know if this was posted before, but it's a TV news report of the press conference last month and the sizzle reel they played at the press con says "12 Cities" plus confirming the countries we already know about.

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/_upOLKZJG0E" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/_upOLKZJG0E</a>

The tourism minister (I think) did mention (2:20) something about "ASEAN plus Taiwan."  But the reporter specifically says (3:24): Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

 If they want to explore TAR traditional route (South Bali), they should go by plane, but they took a ferry and bus to Bali. lt takes more than 4 hours from Gilimanuk harbor to south Bali by bus. Maybe this time they want to explore north area of Bali. Many interesting places there like Lovina, Gitgit, Munduk, & Sekumpul waterfalls  :crazy:

Haha I am actually in Bali now. Would've been trekking Ijen same as TARA if I arrange transport for hiking that very same night. Alas I got jelly legs and lack sleep from another Sunrise hike the day before so I sleep at homestay.

The hike at Ijen especially down to the crater is no joke. Steep and your eyes and nose will burn from the sulphur fumes even wearing gas mask

Yeah North Bali is so underused, I want to see the Pura Ulun Danu (Something like that  :funny:) I alarmist wish that S28 went to North Bali instead of Nusa Lembongan.

F4 - Louisa & Treasuri, Parul & Maggie, Eric & Rona and one of Tom & Anita/JK & Mike/Chloe & Yvonne

I agree, but I think since Leg 7 had a U-Turn and looks to be the Final 6 leg that it's actually Tom & Anita getting booted in the Phils. JK/Mike or Chloe/Yvonne made the F4.

^^^ The chances of Chloe/Yvonne in the Final 4 are slightly better than JK/Mike.

The FF teams are really strong this season. 3/4 made Final 5.
Here's hoping for an all FF final 3... :wohoo:

Female teams in this franchise are always strong racers. Every TARA season had female team in finale and 9(or 10 if Chloe & Yvonne made F4) of 18 FF teams made F4!!! AMAZING. I wish TARUS cast FF teams strong like them.

Isn't time for discussion and wild speculation?

Here is Allan's latest photo of all the teams except one in his instagram. Apparently, Eric/Rona are doing an interview.

I think so. If I have to believe a rumour which passed on me then JK/Mike were out in Vigan.

I took several screenshots so I'll just arrange them by what leg I think they are in. (Click to enlarge)

Gallery is Here: http://imgur.com/a/ZCy2O

Unknown Tasks:





























Unknown Pit Stops:









Leg 1:



Vietnam:



Eric & Rona (the outset of the building matches the Alex & Will sighting as well as the "I'm not Fat" shirt considering Rona's advocacy pre-show)



Brandon & Alphaeus made it to Vietnam (*sighs*)



The eating is indeed a Roadblock.

Malaysia:



(the KTM Train is seen in the background)









Ascender seems like a Roadblock.

Thailand:



Singapore:

Gallery is Here: http://imgur.com/a/ZCy2O

Unknown Tasks:

Maggie and Parul

Leg 3? Tom was wearing that shirt during that Malaysia



Rachel and Vicky; possibly Leg 1 as Vicky has a white shirt during the bike task

Louisa and Treasuri

Louisa and Treasuri; Thailand?

JK and Mike

Louisa and Treasuri; Leg 2?

Lisa and Nicole Leg 1. The clothes that they wear match the start line video.





Biking Task in Leg 2

PH Leg

PH Leg- The clothing Anita wears is the same as the sighting of them at the sausage task.

Unknown Pit Stops:



Leg 2???





Leg 1:

Rachel and Vicky

I don't think this is Vietnam. Brandon and A didn't make the back half of the race. If I had a guess, it would be Leg 3 Penang, Armenia Town.

JK and Mike




Vietnam



Malaysia:



(the KTM Train is seen in the background)









Ascender seems like a Roadblock.

Thailand:



Leg 3 Pitstop (see a couple pages ago)



There is one still I believe from Singapore that is not here and its JK and Mike.

So if that one of Brandon & Alphaeus is Vietnam, it appears that's 2 female teams out right off the bat, including Vietmam's first team :(

11 teams in 10 legs I guess means only a single NEL

This is Keiji of Rei/Keiji. Look at his video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JkfFOERWOU#t=32
I guess this is the decorate-a-bicycle task (could be the very first task of the race) at Kota Tua, Jakarta, Indonesia so this belongs methink to Leg 1.


Thailand:



Notice that Maggie/Parul used a service car of Allstar Guesthouse. The guesthouse is in Patak Road in Karon Beach, Phuket, Thailand.


Leg 3 Pitstop (see a couple pages ago)

There is one still I believe from Singapore that is not here and its JK and Mike.

This is the pitstop in Hean Boo Thean Temple in Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia. I just learned from google that this place was also the starting point of TARA 4. Also Treasuri was wearing that same yellow shirt at the KL train station on their way to Penang.

I guess this is not Vietnam. The place doesn't look like the interior of the upper floor of the restaurant in Vietnam where Alex and Will were spotted. The name of the restaurant is Quan Bui in Ho Chi Minh. I quick google search of the restaurant shows a seemingly different place.
http://www.localideas.co.uk/ho-chi-minh-city-restaurant-publishes-free-newspaper/

I guess this is somewhere in Indonesia or in Jakarta to be particular since those yellow shirts of  JK/Mike were the same shirts they wore at the starting line. Brandon and Alpheus wore the same shirts too at the pitstart!

So, there is a high possibility that Brandon and Alpheus might have not raced through Vietnam

So if Wu was spotted in Yogya airport then this would be either there or in Banyuwangi right? ??? Clearly looks like a National Park entrance maybe? SO more rural seems possble.

But would that mean Taiwan was skipped?  ???

Leg 1 : Jakarta, INA   :yes:
Leg 2 : Yogyakarta, INA
Leg 3 : Singapore, SIN :yes:
Leg 4 : Kuala Lumpur, MAS :yes:
Leg 5 : Ho Chi Minh city, VNM :yes:
Leg 6 : Manila, PHI :yes:
Leg 7 : Taipei, TPE
Leg 8 : Bandung, INA :yes:
Leg 9 : Banyuwangi, INA
Leg 10 : Bali, INA

Review of the actual spoiled legs:

Leg 1: Jakarta, Indonesia
Leg 2: Bandung, Indonesia
Leg 3: Kuala Lumpur and Penang, Malaysia
Leg 4: Phuket, Thailand
Leg 5: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Leg 6: Manila and Vigan, Philippines
Leg 7: Singapore
Leg 8: Yogyakarta, Indonesia
Leg 9: Banyuwangi, Indonesia

Well thanks to fossil it looks like I'm wrong :lol:

I guess those pictures didn't really help our order for the first three boots.

Allan posted a tease of the opening credits on his Instagram stories:
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/w6qKTxlTcrE" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/w6qKTxlTcrE</a>

The title card is basically TARUS with Asia flying up from the bottom of the screen, different from the more fresh, original Asia-focused one they used at the press conference

Also, the flying team names of doom are a more reasonable size and placed in the traditional middle/lower third of the screen. lol
