Is anyone else annoyed that at the 'live' start Beau shouts '3, 2, 1, GO!'?

What happened to 'The World Is Waiting! Good, Travel Safe, GO!'?

What is this bloke doing? :(  :'(

Doesn't bother me considering he's not the first TAR host to use 3, 2, 1, go, and he said race hard, race safe like Grant.

Also, that's a first world type problem. Doesn't really matter as long teams and tasks are good.

South Korea
Vietnam
Mongolia
Zambia
Australia

We are missing 3 countries.

Malawi?
I Kenya was specifically mentioned by Beau in this interview: https://www.kiis1065.com.au/entertainment/tv/beau-ryan-tells-us-all-about-the-amazing-race-australia/

That could be just a generic reference...not a real stop.  or not lol!

I do not believe Beau is that much of a quick thinker that he'd (1) pull out a fake country as an example and (2) conveniently pick one of the two countries that had been rumoured but not confirmed just to confuse the show's stalkers, especially when it's not the sort of country that's been associated with TAR much in the past.

I think the "every corner of the world" bit is more significant given the race as we know it is almost entirely confined to east Asia and south eastern Africa. Would make it almost certain that the missing country is in the Americas somewhere. Or maybe they're treating it as "eight INTERNATIONAL countries" and ignoring the Australia finale, and there's one missing country in the Americas and one in Europe.

Linda that photo took me a while to find, but pretty sure it's here at Zaisan Monument in Ulaanbaatar. There's been a bit more development since the google view, but it should match up.

I'd peg it as the pitstop if they stopped to take selfies.

Judy & Terese and Alana & Niko are not seen in preview outside of Seoul, Rowah & Amani are not seen either, but we had sighting of them in Vietnam.

So I would guess one of the first two teams mentioned is first team eliminated.

Discussion of new possible Locations/TAsks  from the promos is fine here.

TEAM/Contestant discussions go in that thread please. That includes spec on placements.

Some of the new locations shown in the preview include a headfirst swing at the Lookout Cafe swing in Zimbabwe, a shot of Route 37 outside of Seoul, a hydroflight task at the Mapo Bridge in Seoul, a Batoka Aerodrome microlight over Livingstone, and a Lake Malawi-style dugout canoe.

They went to Victoria Falls, so that's 2 of the 8 countries right there =/

Zambia/Zimbabwe. And Australia makes 3.

Just speculation but I think the missing country could probably be one in the Middle East - UAE/Qatar/Bahrain etc. This would also fit within the 3 continent confirmation from the preview.

Only because the preview including shots of teams fly boarding in the water and looks to be behind a Middle Eastern type skyline. Is someone able to screencap those shots and try and ID the city behind?

Ah okay! My bad! I still think we could still have a Middle Eastern country as one of the penultimate legs however - but this is pure speculation.

Didn't somebody say Kenya, or was that pure spec, too?

The route will be a little better if the missing country is something Middle Eastern. Or even in Australia's continent, somewhere in Polynesia.

I think the route is Asia (SK, Vietnam, Mongolia) - Africa (Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi) - Asia - Australia, with last country being Asia's one not seen in promos because it would be too spoilerish. Or would they go all the way from Africa to Australia? Isn't that logistic nightmare?

Yeah, Australia's always done a fantastic job with fair casting of older folks.

I'm equally excited for the announcement of that other Bill & Cathi-looking team that spun around on the camel.

The "empanadas" chalenge from last promo is in South Korea, right? Do we know the name of that food?

Also I think either SK or Vietnam will have 2 pit stops, I wonder which one.

Those aren't empanadas, they are gyozas/potstickers a food that is found in East Asia.

Based off the promos and knowing from filming that Victoria Falls is Leg 7, I think the only logical choice at this point is 3 double legs in South Korea, Vietnam and Mongolia right? I don't think we've seen any promo footage outside these three countries.

Yeah it makes me think this info below is accurate. We'd have all double legs excluding the Zimbabwe/Zambia combo and the penultimate leg before the finale in Aus. Kinda disappointing honestly.

I have heard from a reliable source that there will be 6 countries visited, 2 legs in each country.

There is lot of Africa footage in promo. Sid & Ash, Jerome & Jasmin, Femi & Nic and Viv & Joey are seen in Africa in promo(s).

I think first half of the season are double legs in SK, Vietnam, Mongolia, then 3 single legs in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi. Then I guess double leg in another unknown asian country and then one leg in Australia. Just speculation.
