Here are my thoughts: (bolded are good search terms)

Had high hopes for Tel-Aviv...but they were NOT there via the prime flight yesterday.

Varsha has suggested Luhacovice Cz as a possible next location.
TravelJunkie pulled some info for me. They could go by train, requiring change/connections in about 4.5 hours. Self drive and /or bus also possible.
This might be mildly off grid.

Africa? Had some hopes for Cape Town but doubting this now. 

Istanbul? Very good jumping off place for Africa/onwards. But politically not sure.

Depending on the above, somewhere in India ...mostly for the BIG jump.
Mumbai the top choice here.

And then...I have the MOST  hope for NEPAL this time. Some "my want", some more factual. Entry via Kathmandu

After that, have serious hopes for Aus and/or Nz on the homeward journey.

Some of this is spec, some wishlist, some tips. So big grains of salt.
If they go places where Instagram/Snapchat/Twitter less likely, the search gets tougher.

And when the search gets tougher? RFF gets going!! :yess:

All eyes looking today please? Y'all are the BEST!

Three flights left Prague yesterday beginning at 10:30-1:30 to Dubai in UAE... What do you think about that destination? also a city near it Doha in Qatar?  My daughter visits here all the time as she works in Kuwait.
Always have an attitude of gratitude. :)

Dubai was only just visited in S28.

Doha would be awesome, It's meant to be safe there but production would probably avoid it anyway due to the current affairs in the country despite the the life in the country outside of politics is fine. Bahrain could be a very good alternative. I'd prefer Jordan, Israel or Oman.

Both Doha and Dubai are good places for transferring on though, not necessarily as locations themselves

Maybe Durban is the other one and it is known as South Africa's Playground.

Would it be possible for them to go from Africa to Oceania and completely skip over Asia??  :chute:

I thought about that as well today.
Would make for a really unique route tbh, and I'd love it, especially if a place like Fiji was visited in Oceania.

But I expect they'll host at least 1-2 legs in Asia to cross out another continent.

When was the last time there wasn't a dramatic and/or shocking moment in Asia (ignoring TAR 24 which you should do, then...TAR 19?). #TeamAsia

That said there are flights from Johannesburg to Perth and Sydney and maybe Melbourne as well? Honestly Australia and NZ work a lot better as the starting legs of a race imo, especially if they're commited to starting in LAX.

What would really make for an incredible route, though, is if they did Africa > Oceania > Asia > USA.
Pretty sure that's never been done before!

And Taiwan could be used as the penultimate leg. :colors

Really doubt would they do a race with no Asia legs
I think the possibilty of having Oceania legs dimmed significantly

Confirmed: (Summary)
Leg 1: USA --> Iceland
Leg 2: Iceland --> Belgium
Leg 3: Belgium --> Morocco
Leg 4: Morocco --> France
Leg 5: France
Leg 6: France --> Czechia
Leg 7: Czechia --> Zimbabwe

When was the last time we had 4 legs with 4 different countries?  :hearts: I love the route so far!

Wishlist: (with the influence of other forum members)
Leg 8: Zimbabwe --> South Africa
Leg 9: South Africa --> Nepal
Leg 10: Nepal
Leg 11: Nepal --> Taiwan or Fiji
Leg 12: Taiwan or Fiji --> USA

Not even Indonesia or China can ruin the route now! :hrt:

On 1 hand, I'd like to see an Asia skip as that would be interesting. On another hand, I want to see Nepal being visited. Hmmm... ???
Lowkey lurking until TAR returns.
I'm back!!!
Slowly fading now that TAR30 filming is over.

Why Country Victoria Claude? Geelong and Port Campell are really the only places that host a second leg, as Bendigo, Ballarat and Healesville, are far too small. Also, two legs in one state is abit 'iffy'.

Pan-ultimate legs usually have to be held in airport hubs so that they can find an easy way back to the US

Only 3 of the recent 10 season did not do so
Season 21,22 > the pan-ultimate location have convieient linkage with airport hubs
Season 24 > Self-driving
