What I meant by "linear" was a poorly-designed leg where the finishing order duplicates the exit order at the final airport; in other words, the first team to get off the plane wins the race. A leg that's constructed well allows back-and-forth movement among the teams.

Yeah, any task that involves teams to get in a line for something shouldn't be on a Final Leg, imo. A Leg of course can be linear and poorly designed without such a task. But first come, first served tasks certainly don't help.

Shouldn't there be sightings by now?

I think it might be helpful if Peach or some other mod would post whether RFF has information that it is withholding or not. Then we would have some idea what to expect to see posted.

I don't think we can know what to expect until the leg is done. It's a rapidly changing situation and we don't know how public the filming is going to be. Sometimes (like TAR 29) social media is crazy with sightings, other times they go to private locations and we don't find out much.

Like, should we be expecting to see sightings today or tomorrow? Or is that also dangerous to say.

Maybe they were just filming their clues and then going back to sequester? The skiers hung out for a little bit and then Jessica was wearing flip-flops. I could be wrong.

^That's a good point. Especially with no sightings at the airport. Maybe they haven't even left Hong Kong yet.  :D

Does anybody think the would really "fake" a pit-start? I certainly don't.

Question: Did any of the people that saw them ripping envelopes hear what the route info said?

Do we know if they actually ripped the clues open?

The only reason why I think that is because I found it weird that the skiers would hang out for a little bit before leaving. I have no idea.

I don't know that that happened. I have yet to see confirmation of it.

Guys search for sighting at HK airport, skiers just departed for Leg 12
Were they the first out?
Not yet known. Vic mentioned he saw Skiers only and the mat was removed after Skiers ripped off the clue
Vicdemort may be able to tell us whether he saw them rip the clue.

Well, it's not like it has any effect on the competition and Race itself if they "faked" it. Just something they need to do for the episode itself to get it out of the way, especially if they have the whole day in HK before leaving.

Jessica had her flip-flops on, we didn't see one team, and the skiers hung around. For all we know, they were filming interviews and would be released later. And what better way for TPTB to throw a few foilers out there? Don't forget, they know we're watching.  :funny:

The only night finale they've ever done was Vegas in season 24, pretty sure.

But as Hong Kong was just a night leg, they probably won't do 2 in a row.

Of course, the TAR21 finale went into the evening because of the Road Block. hehe
And the Finish Line was indoors too.

One of the skiers also had on flipflops.  I thought the skiers had to wait a few minutes longer before they could leave after #Jody, sometimes they do that right?

Unless I'm mistaken, usually they rip their clue envelopes at the time specified for the start of their leg. There's some speculation that the start of this leg was staged around 12-12:30 Hong Kong time.  If so we don't know what the true intervals might be.

I've read bits and pieces of the raw threads (very little help for me) and the summaries, and looking at it with fresh eyes since I hadn't been involved this season, I would say no airport in the US is safe from being the final destination city airport at this point. TPTB could even do a fake out and have teams fly to the final city via Beijing from Hong Kong and that would open up even more direct flights. Anything is possible.
Only thing I'll suggest is that on paper, areas with recent natural events such as hurricanes and fires are probably less likely, but who knows? I certainly don't.

Phil tweeted a picture of himself with a camel...there is a camel safari in Vegas.  It's at camelsafari.com

The Camel Safari is not in Vegas, it is in Mesquite which is a super dumpy city outside of Vegas and also was home to Stephen Paddock which I doubt they would want to showcase where that psycho lived.

With regards to the Pit Start of teams hanging out - I would like to bring up the possibility that it's likely just for formalities. We actually haven't seen all three teams depart the Pit Start on the Finale (with all departure times) on the show since TAR26.
