TAR 30: Speculation and Discussion of the **SPOILERS** WORKZONE!
« on: September 30, 2017, 10:10:37 AM »
This thread is the WORKZONE of our spoilers.
 
This is where ALL the spoiler speculation/discussion of the TAR 30 race goes, NOT in the LIVE thread. It is where we try to thrash out what the LIVE sightings mean.

 
 
Please use the LIVE START thread for all posts from there.

Once teams head to the airport, please use the LIVE SIGHTINGS Thread for sightings

ALL Discussion of the Spoilers and Sightings GO HERE!   :conf:

So we have some slight celebrities after all. Not a full cast of everyday teams, nor do we have older contestants, nor do we have teams that are not as in shape (as I noticed nearly everyone on 29 was uber-fit, when did that become mandatory?).

On the bright side, at least the teams all have a pre-determined relationship...

- Cody (32) & Jessica (26) - Newly Dating & Former Big Brother
- Alexander (26) & Conor (25) - Friends & IndyCar Drivers
- Cedric (48) & Shawn (39) - Friends & Former NBA Players
- April (40) & Sarah (40s) - Friends & Goat Yoga Instructors
- Joey (33) & Tim (40) - Competitive Eaters

Still to confirm:
- M/F in fluro and light green, female may be Indian.
- M/M in black and grey.
- M/F in 'Y' caps, male is Asian-American.
- F/F in pink.
- M/M bald in plaid.
- F/F younger in red.

Wonder where they will be going in Iceland. Jokulsarlon is beautiful, but was used the last time they went there. Icelandic hot dogs, as well as shark and Brennevin could also be featured.

The red team I think I heard Phil say Kelsee and Kayla?
The Yale caps I think were named Henry and Evan (Evelyn?)

That's all I got. Phil didn't speak very loud.

How possible would it be for the teams to be racing under the northern lights? Sorry I posted in wrong thread before.

It's possible, but no guarantee. Also, they aren't extremely bright, so it would be hard to get them on camera. I feel like most of the time, racers finish the legs in daylight too.

Iceland? Great! I remember that leg in Iceland in s6 was pretty good. Possible ice climbing on a glaciers.

So, possible routing: Europe->Africa->Europe->Asia->Australia?->S. America?->USA

At least there would be never having another South America leg after having four consecutive seasons in a row. Let's start for Europe -> Africa -> Asia -> Oceania -> USA route.

Fingers crossed for a 5-continent, 10 country and a near 40,000 mile race.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

ICELAND WHAT A GREAT FIRST LOCATION!!!  :conf:

You've gotta love seeing a underused country on the Race!

Shame about Ireland though. Maybe next leg!
HOWE DOES HE DO THAT?

Pray for Latvia in the next leg. The only Baltic country never visited in TAR franchise and it is way long overdue since the start of HD era.

There are a flights to Riga from Reykjavik-Keflavik with a stop at either Oslo/Copenhagen/Stockholm.

With Iceland as first leg, I suspect another Northern Europe country as next,  probably Sweden or Finland, before they go on the Baltic (Latvia)

Wonder if they'll have an overnight rest like the first Iceland visit?

Probably not, with a 2h30 driving time they'd arrive at around 9:30am!
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Good news: second flight's gate was right near mine!

Bad news: didn't make it in time to have good interaction with teams  :groan:

100% on the second flight:
Pro Eaters (Green M/M)
Violinists (Black M/M)
Boxers (Red F/F)

Apparently Basketball was the other team, but I didn't see them

I hope the teams buy good road maps with their remaining cash (cab fare will eat most of the $85). The directions in the Additional Information are not very good (here are driving instructions from a Húsafell tourist attraction; the route is not intuitive and the road signs aren't much help).
