Amazing Race AUS 4 Discussion of the LIVE Sightings
« on: August 14, 2019, 05:14:48 AM »
This thread is the WORKZONE of our spoilers.
 
This is where ALL the spoiler speculation/discussion of the TAR AUS 4 race goes, NOT in the LIVE thread. It is where we try to thrash out what the LIVE sightings mean.

 
 
(If the start is pre-announced LIVE, then we will use that thread for all sightings Start to Airport Departure.)

ALL Discussion of the LIVE Sightings and comments on them go here!
 
 


As always, per RFF's practices, we do not spoil the start location (if known) or any non-revealed teams until it is believed that the teams are safely underway. We would never want to put a team in jeopardy or cause them distress or interfere with the actual running of the race. Info on future legs may also occasionally be protected for those reasons. But if you have info to share beforehand, we would love to know, so please feel free to PM or email me! Spoilers are treasured!
 
This thread will be opened once the race is beginning.  :tup:

Oh Shoot, maybe we missed the start.

Hanoi?? Can someone help with this translation?

Scott Morrison (Australian Prime Minister) is currently in Hanoi. Could this have anything to do with this?

Beau was also posting on his Instagram AND his Instagram story at around 8pm last night... we may not have started yet!

Beau can post whenever/wherever. His posting does not reflect on the TAR current status.

The Seoul sighting was posted at 8:59pm AEST time on Wed 21/08 - video clearly shows teams racing in the daytime.

Possible timeline could be:
Tuesday 20/08 - Start Line in Australia - overnight flight to Seoul.
Wednesday 21/08 - Leg 1 in Seoul & daytime sighting at N Seoul Tower
Thurs 22/08 - Arrive in Hanoi late evening & evening sighting at Hanoi Cathedral

In that video posted by aussieamazingracer, that orange team most certainly is Tom Wilkinson & Tyler Roos!

The man on the right (in the video), is almost certainly Tyler and you can get a good image of the side of his face, if you look very closely!

Great work guys!!!

Ok, thanks!


Also is there way how to find out that instagram post which is videorecorded on reddit? Because it looks liked he shared more sightings on his instagram, but we see only 2 in that video on reddit. He also posted some commentary which is cut on that screen...

Of course, we could directly contact that guy on reddit and ask him for more info but he doesn't seem very active... His last activity before this TAR post was month ago.



Edit: I found that instagram account(it hasonly 9 posts), but it's private. I asked for following, so we will see...

Its been close to 24 hours since the Hanoi sighting so chances are good they are on the move again or already at next destination.

All hands on deck for searching for our next sighting!   :hfive:

Teams were spotted in Hanoi Thursday night, likely encountered an HoO, and traveled to Ninh Binh the next morning on Friday. The sighting of the grey team was posted at 4PM local time on 8/23, so I would say Leg 2.

One of the male from black MM has greyish hair, so I guess he is older. Maybe father & son?

The sighting of the grannies (or nuns or w/e they're referred as) was most likely at the love locks at Namsan Tower.

If they did a second leg in Vietnam, somewhere rural, there's less chance of sighting. 4th is still quite possible.

Would they really do two rural Vietnam legs and then go to Mongolia directly after? I'd think it's more likely we missed another country. Especially if the route is going Australia-Korea-Vietnam-Mongolia, it seems odd that they wouldn't do Vietnam before Korea in that case. It makes more sense to me that there'd be somewhere like Bangladesh or Nepal in the middle.

Also I know Mongolia typically doesn't have many exit options, but there appears to be a flight from Ulaanbaatar to Frankfurt today. Europe is DEFINITELY a possibility for the next leg.
