Kinda hoping they do another leg there to make it 3 legs including Morocco, no season has spent more than 2 in Africa in forever!

Not really. But the thing two African legs in most TAR seasons, expecting to travel from Zimbabwe to Southeast Asia (Thailand/Cambodia) in the next leg for a couple of days.

This. Taiwan visit also possible with plenty of flight from Hong Kong connection and from what I know on here Taiwan did sponsor TAR for the last few season.
TAR25: The best HD season since TAR18.
TARAS3/UB2 Potential Contestant:
Kym & Alli / Shelly & Nici (25), Hayley & Blair (26), Tanner & Josh / Denise & James Earl / Tiffany & Krista (27)

I'm leaning towards having 3 legs remaining once we leave Zimbabwe, not including the finale

It could be 3 separate countries, or include 2 countries (1 hosting 2 legs)

I would also lean towards Japan, Taiwan, New Zealand, or China hosting the penultimate leg

Other possibilities for the other legs:
Nepal (2)
India (1 or 2)
Thailand (2)
Sri Lanka (1)
Australia (2)
Indonesia (1 or 2)
Cambodia (1)
Vietnam (1 or 2)
Singapore (1)
Hong Kong/Macau (1)

I really don't think they're going to do South America- even in the one other season to not go around the world (Season 7), they still hosted 2 legs in Asia- it would be insane for them to tighten that circle further and completely avoid the continent

That the reason in my repeated previous posts, we always have two African legs, but two separate nations (one in Morocco and the other in Zimbabwe). Have only four legs to go (not counting the finale) once leaving Zimbabwe.

Here's my possibilities:

Chiang Mai, Thailand (1)
Phnom Penh, Cambodia (1)
Siem Reap, Cambodia (1)
Penang, Malaysia (1)
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (1)

We would probably avoid typhoon affected areas in parts of Southeast Asia and Japan and we might get to see Taiwan for leg 9 (see post above for the sponsorship), that the first half would get New Taipei and the other in Taipei.

Oceania has not visited since season 22 and have to lean Australia as the last country.

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'.

Bourkie was right in small towns near Melbourne that could possibly not want there. Geelong and Port Campbell (Great Ocean Road) would better to host the first Australian leg, and Melbourne would be visit for the second Australian leg, as well as the penultimate leg before teams would head to LA area by October 25th (arrival would be the same day in the morning, LA time).

mid-to-late October is a very good time for Fiji plus there's a convenient nonstop flight from Nadi to LAX since I'm being realistic about End City.  :)

on the topic of 'being realistic' I can't see them skipping China again so perhaps something like

legs 7, 8 - Harare or thereabouts, Zimbabwe
leg 9 - China (Xi'an maybe  :colors)
leg 10 - train ride to somewhere else, China
leg 11 - Fiji
leg 12 - LA or somewhere nearby

Just by checking the number of options, Taiwan (and Australia for that matter) seem like a better fit for the start of the race, where they can easily get 11 teams on two flights but I wouldn't be surprised to see either.

So far so good with 6 legs of Europe and 2 legs of Africa!  :conf:

Might as well get to the bottom of the mystery, this will be my wishlist:

Leg 1: Iceland
Leg 2: Belgium
Leg 3: Morocco
Leg 4: France
Leg 5: France
Leg 6: Czechia
Leg 7: Czechia
Leg 8: Zimbabwe?
Leg 9: India -> Nepal
Leg 10: Nepal
Leg 11: Thailand or Taiwan
Leg 12: USA

OR

Leg 9: Malaysia
Leg 10: Australia
Leg 11: Australia
Leg 12: USA

Leg 7 remains unconfirmed right now.

It's possible, though. If we have one leg  between legs 6 and 8, then we missed that leg. so Zimbabwe is confirmed as Leg 8. My speculated guess is that Legs 9 to 11 may be SE Asia -> Oceania. Why not go to India or Malaysia for Leg 9 and then get to Australia Legs 10-11? No more Indonesia, please.

Nepal might definitely be on the cards. Phil might be able to convince his bosses this time. Nepal will be awesome imo! Such a peaceful place.

If Nepal is confirmed then we can have 1 leg and a half.  so my suggestion is they'll be in Patna, India then get to Kathmandu.

The problem that Nepal has only one international airport and its celebrating Diwali (Tihar) it that country and is so possibly ruling out due to religious holiday in Hindu countries may be avoided to visit just like neighboring India.

justmjlayson, the teams arrived in Harare in the late afternoon of 10/15 and having had a hours of operation to open the following morning at the lodge outside of Harare. I basically checked those tweets from jodyfan in Speculation Discussion thread.

Honestly I think it would be kind of cool to have a Great Circle route like Season 7!

Leg 1: Iceland
Leg 2: Belgium
Leg 3: Morocco
Leg 4: France
Leg 5: France
Leg 6: Czech Republic
Leg 7: Zimbabwe
Leg 8: South Africa
Leg 9: South Africa (have there ever been 4 African legs?)
Leg 10: Ecuador
Leg 11: Hopefully a new North American country, but I'll put my money on The Bahamas, Guatemala, or Cuba
Leg 12: With a penultimate leg in North America it could be anything, but I think cool finales would be Philadelphia or Boston!

i don't think they will skip Asia. How about finale leg in Honolulu, Hawaii? The last time we had Hawaii was season 20

Taipei, Taiwan for late leg before Australia. Melbourne has 2-3 daily flights to LA so have to wait for next week's filming of final leg.

If we do get an Australian leg or two, I'd be really surprised. Does Zimbabwe have 2 legs? Been busy with work and I was shocked at the number of pages now on Specs Thread, that's more than double of last season. :didimiss:

Not quite as much. As if so that Zimbabwe could have only one leg which arrived in late afternoon of the 15th and most of the tasks completed in the 16th. Those posts at the speculation thread has a lot of 81 pages. It ain't be having more than 3 African legs in one season. So there is already two African legs in two different countries, most recent seasons did so having two legs in one African country.
