Was the Eric and Rona photo from the last leg?

You're right. The Manila - Vigan leg to be specific.

Allan just posted that he's "Fatigued and famished from flying and filming"

So, they all have some superspeed if they were able to travel all the way back to Manila and then fly somewhere else, even if that somewhere else is a southern Philippine location. lol That's some tight time management for the AXN team.

Could that be the start of the next Leg instead? Opening the first clue of the Leg?

That's Bantay Church (located beside the Bantay Bell Tower which was the Pitstop) in Vigan. I've been there so I can recognize that picture.

Yep, I think it's a match!  :hoot:

Is it possible though that they went to Palawan and that cave was actually the Underground River?

They seem like walking inside a cave so they aren't in a river.

I think just referring to Allan's video of him walking through the cave.

It is Allen's ig ?

I have followed but do not see it ?

He posted it using Instagram Stories, the Snapchat-ish new feature. It's not on his regular Instagram posts.  If you're using the Instagram app, it should be right on the top of the main feed.

I uploaded the 2 videos to YouTube: https://youtu.be/nr53pyp-pW8
Any lip readers out there? They could probably find out what he's saying in the first video lol

It's on the other thread. It is video uploaded to youtube by dyedmangoez

Allan's latest Instagram story, posted around  Friday Pacific Time/12pm Saturday Philippine/Taiwan/Hong Kong Time:
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/amHCIjkeDXU" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/amHCIjkeDXU</a>

He's shirtless and excited to get a tan (lol) while waiting for teams at the next Pit Stop.
It looks like maybe a rooftop or something?  If the Leg is only finishing up now, then it is likely outside of the Philippines. But where?!

How could they go without them being noticed especially that they were in the Philippines? We know a they have great followers in here

Is this JK & Mike? So they're in Singapore.
Aha! Great find! Yup, that looks like JK & Mike. 

So JK & Mike and Eric & Rona survive the Philippine Leg maybe.

Singapore would be logical for the short time between it and the Philippines.  Teams would have plenty of flights to choose from if they left Vigan Friday morning to catch any of the evening flights to Singapore.

Are there caves in Singapore though?

So, there's 1 Leg in the Philippines then followed by a leg in Singapore? Am I right?
Maybe the absence of signs is a sign.

I was able to contact the owner of the photo and she told me this picture was taken around 4:20 pm yesterday ( August 19 Philippine time).

So we can now assume this is really the start of the next leg.

That's great work constitution and TARJr.!

That Eric & Rona pic should be the start of the next Leg since that would be the only time they would open a new clue at Bantay Church since it was the Pit Stop.

It would appear then that Allan and the crew flew ahead and filmed all his stand ups and spiels Friday with the teams arriving in Singapore sometime Saturday morning with the Leg running into Saturday afternoon.

I wonder if they're sticking to just 10 Legs like previously announced.  If Singapore is Leg 8 then that would leave only 2 Legs left for Indonesia.

Has Asia been to the Singapore Flyer before? That seems to a popular choice for a task location. And the Marina Bay Sands.

If not, that could be a spot to watch,

There on target for 10 legs but I wouldn't be surprised if they changed it 11 or 12.
I think they could do Taiwan Leg 9 and finish in Indonesia.

With Indonesia the sponsor, I think it is a given that Indonesia will be the Finale, prob Bali for epic scenery.

The question is will we have one or two legs there? Banyuwangi seems far more likely than Yogya...maybe they decided that would NOT be the best Malaysia choice. :funny:

This was the original route, the order changed. But somebody compare done country #'s to this and maybe  we can guess?

Taiwan almost certainly next.

Hmm, are we sure that KL and Penang aren't just one leg? They look to have done Manila/Vigan in a single leg... might give us more time to see Indonesia at the end.
I see you watching me watching you :)

It's only one Leg in the Philippines (Manila > Vigan) and then Singapore is next. Nothing in between.  There's zero time when Allan already left the Philippines, it appears, before the teams even left Vigan for the next Leg.
