Well there isnt much time left in a the race (less than a week) so the next 2 legs better happen quickly.

Isn't there some festival in Kathmandu at the moment?

Yes, tomorrow is Diwali. It's an official holiday in Hindu countries.

Yesterday when people were saying that pic was the twins I didn’t look close at the pic. Looking at it now is that even one of the teams or is it camera crew? Looks like a camera on one of their hips

Thought that myself when found picture on Twitter, but GeorgiaPeach compared backpacks and if you look at earlier pics they had the same cranberry thing hanging off it.
Sorry if this is a dumb question but is that the same pic people are saying has Cody/Jess and twins together in because I don’t see that. Or is there a different pic with all of them together?

Honestly, we should be looking ahead and catching the teams. Could help solve the identity of our missing team!

As Peach said earlier; Possible locations are Kathmandu, Sydney, Perth and Taipei. Myanmar is also a possibility.

Both. This next leg will be a long haul. Chances are good they are flying now, some of production was in transit yesterday.

Possible/probable
I have been checking Asia, Australia, all kinds of weird things - being new to the TAR spoilers, is this an abnormally long stretch with no new tangible news (or does it really depend on the social media activity of the locations they are in?)


Both. This next leg will be a long haul. Chances are good they are flying now, some of production was in transit yesterday.

Katmandu remains a STRONG possibility. As does Taipei.


Others include Myanmar, Sydney, Perth.

Katmandu would bring me GREAT JOY!!

I think one twin is wearing blue-ish shoes, but the other has brown ones?

no look at the picture with the two twins.. Both of their shoes are dark colored

THe guys at the pitstop are brown. That is not a twin.

Can you please repost the pictures in question so we know what you're referring to? Or give me the links so I can do a side-by-side?

They look so similar, but looking at it again the guy in Jody pic also doesn't have a pack around his waist. I think in the other picture that is what is probably what is near his waist area.

Fwiw Iím pretty sure they went to Dubai and landed at 12:09am, and either doing a leg there or connecting in the morning and sleeping there

this is probably the fewest M/F team they have ever had on the race... Only 3 and they are all in final 5.

Doing a leg in Dubai and catching a quick 4 hour flight to Katmandu sounds very reasonable.

I highly doubt this is only leg 8 with 5 teams left. This has to be leg 9 coming up .

Fingers crossed on Kathmandu!

If it is, teams could be landing via Doha, Qatar around 8:45am or 10:30am (so in the next few hours for us)

Connecting through Mumbai is also an option landing at 11am

Production could have easily connected through Dubai yesterday, landing sometime yesterday evening/night

And all three are dating. These lovers are competitive.

Yes it is Leg 9. 2 Legs in Zimbabwe (Leg 7 was NEL, Leg 8 was Double U-Turn)

One other thing Iíve learned is theyíre expected to be home in 23-24 days from the start. So Iím assuming they finish Sunday-Tuesday.

With 5 left. I see an elimination in Asia, possibly a NEL and 2 quick legs there... then head to Australia with 4 teams... and then head to Vegas or LA with the final 3.

Maybe a dumb question to ask, is there any confirmation with support for these three pieces of information we are talking about?

1. 2 Legs in Zimbabwe and we are now starting leg 9
2. U-turn in Zimbabwe and Twins get eliminated
3. They flew to Dubai

Not happening I think. I don't think they would do a three flight connection.

We know they did Harare-Johannesburg-Dubai. The next flight is their destination, ie direct from Dubai.

Didn't they JUST do one to get to Zimbabwe though?

Prague > Zurich > Johannesburg > Harare?

Would take only 2 to get into either Doha or Mumbai from Harare- I'm not counting it out yet

Since they started in New York, chances are the final leg will predictably be somewhere in LA or somewhere close to it. Sadly, every season since 11 has either had to start or end in California. Would be nice if they break this pattern for 30 but, I'd guess there's a little budget saving for at least one end of the race to be near home base.

Yes. Yesterday, I worked backwards from suspected destination. There are other possibilities.
