Before this gains any traction, this is NOT a sighting:

Hilal Ahmad @hilalahsoun
Coming ,,, Amazing Race
7:23 AM - 21 Oct 2017
[time stamp is ET. Approx 3 hours ago. This person is in Jammu & Kashmir.]

He has explained twice that he meant "autumn is coming."


To me, the picture he posted looks more like New England or the Appalachians than Jammu or Kashmir. But I've never been to Jammu or Kashmir.

He is in Kashmir . Spoke to him, he is sorry for any confusion.

Question: there are a lot of starting line vids out there.

Could y'all keep an eye out for any that might include Phil's normal ___continents, ___cities, ___ days?? My clips do not have it, and I do not remember hearing it, but could easily have missed it. Would be helpful to have. :tup:

Perhaps the logistics promo was filmed pre-flight/during/post-landing of this trip high over New York.

Does he ever do that at the starting line? I only really remember him doing it to the winners, but it would be super helpful to have!

Isn't that something that he says at the end of the race right before saying who the winner is?  I just went back and watched the beginning of 5 seasons and he didn't say that in any of them.  He says "The world is waiting for you...good luck...travel safe...go"

This doesn't mean he didn't mention it, just that it's not something that's typically aired at the start of the race.

Could have sworn he's at least said "...that will take you across __ continents and more than __ miles" at a starting line before.

He's said it in the recent seasons:

TAR 29: You are about to pair up with a complete stranger for a 9-country 17-city 36,000-mile race around the world...
TAR 28: In just 21 days, you'll visit 18 cities and 10 countries and travel more than 27,000 miles.
TAR 27: [None aired]
TAR 26: [Opening narration, not to racers] Is it possible to find new love on a 35,000-mile race around the world?
TAR 25: [None aired]
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

Ah, so he hasn't done it for the public starting lines. 25 and 27 were open. And 28 was live but didn't have a proper starting line, it was a video message at home. Clever, Phil :P

Yes he does almost always.

It seems that not at public starts though.
Kinda makes sense, as it would make our spoiling job much easier. So makes sense not to say it this season as well.

Pakistan is more unlikely is too dangerous there to visit.US and Australia already have travel advisories in the country that would not to travel the country.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

Appears they are Chiang Mai, northern Thailand. Skiers sighting.

Guess that's alright, an underused part of the country :)

I'm trying to watch the periscope.  A huge Thailand  map was posted on Twitter 21 hours ago.  More and more I think their source is Production.

I'm not great with Periscope, will someone be able to get some stills from it?

In live sighting, Captain was amazing enough to post the periscope streams. If anyone has good eyes, in the first broadcast, at the end, he encounter the skiers and the clue is visible. Can anyone read it?

The additional info seems to suggest Hong Kong is the final destination. Unless they're going to Hong Kong getting a clue there at one Route Marker and then flying off somewhere else.

According to the clue that is not the destination and they're headed to Hong Kong.

Unless we've already missed a leg that took place there. Thailand I understand has a bit of a history of being a difficult country to get sightings out of, after most recently Canada 5 went to Bangkok and we had no idea they were ever in that country until the episode preview came up.

If they are flying to Hong Kong from Thailand is it possible that this is already leg 11 (if we assume Bahrain was pitstop for leg 9)?

Since it's morning and they are just heading to the travel agent, do we think they did a leg in Thailand yesterday?

Quite possibly. By the timeframe since Bahrain, maybe a Keep on Racing (no Pit Stop break)

I think that is most likely.. There has to still be 4 teams left if it's leg 11 so either Thaliand or Bahrain would have to be a NEL.
