LIVE sightings go here!  :hearts: And ONLY live sightings please!!
 
Comments on the sightings can go HERE >>that's where the real work takes place!
 
If you HAVE a live sighting to share, help us as much as you can with
WHO (be descriptive, what they look like, is it a male/female team for example, what color they are wearing is helpful)
WHAT are they doing
WHERE (as exactly as possible... street? airport gate? address? be specific!)
WHEN (what time zone?, exact time)
and any descriptions of the action! Pictures are treasured!
 
If you have a spoiler and prefer to share it privately, you can email me, my email is in my profile. Your confidentiality will be respected. You can also PM me here. Or PRIVATE message me on Twitter @peachrff
 
IMPORTANT! If you find anything posted by someone working in any capacity for the race or by production, do NOT post it here, you can cost someone their job...or worse. Let me or one of the Moderators know, and we'll see if it can be shared. Thanks!

Same goes for info on FUTURE legs, if you have a spoiler message one of the Moderators FIRST please. NO Future Leg details (where teams will be) should be posted without checking please.


If you are posting a tweet, please post the tweet, the tweet time, and LINK TO the twitter user name. Take a screencap if you can, tweets do disappear.
Please be kind, and don't all bury the poor unsuspecting twitterer with questions, if you see another RFFer on the job, let them handle it.

 
Photos should be credited. If someone is kind enough to share some with us specifically, those should be marked with photo by...or photo credit to....when posting. Happy to help if you need it.  Generally, pics posted on public Instagrams and Twitter are considered "public".
 


Spoiler info from public FACEBOOK posts may be shared. (For full details, see HERE .)
  I would like us to ASK, but the current messaging system means many posts go unseen. If you do not contact them yourself, please let ME know so I can try. *basic courtesy* This means copy me on all Facebook links please!

Please quote the info, provide the link, and credit the source.

Pictures should be marked with a name or initials whenever possible, if you cannot, just link to them and I'll help as time allows.

THE RULES ABOUT NO PRODUCTION INFO EVER AND NO FUTURE LEG INFO STILL APPLY!
FOR SECURITY REASONS DO NOT REVEAL A FUTURE LOCATION. NOTIFY A MODERATOR ASAP.




 
If you are concerned that any info gained from any sighting, FB post or tweet may be private or confidential or just "too much too soon", feel free to PM/email/private Tweet me to ask before you post.


 
The mods get VERY grouchy if they have to move posts.... so any non-live sighting chatter WILL be deleted!
 


Big :ghug: to all of you who are bringing us info, we couldn't do this without you!!

Taking Saigon to the lake to play. When standing, there was a foreigner about 2 meters tall with a camera that was shining and asked for directions.

Then he gave me the deal to use the picture of amazing race Australia bao signed 🙄🙄🙄

Adding some info:

1) On 8/20 313Am (EST) I received his message from a known RFF member:

Quote
saw a friendís Instagram story where he spotted a F/F team reading a clue at N Seoul Tower, Korea. Both racers are wearing hijabs.

 Could it be a possible sighting?

2) I spoke with the person reporting the Hanoi sighting about 6 hrs ago: 8/22/19 ~930PM EST

He said:

Quote
I did not take any photo of them

I met them in HoanKiem Lake

Support them to find the way to water puppet theatre

Then have no idea next

It was about midnight 12 PM the 22 about 9 hours ago

I just answer them one question about the direction

(he originally thought perhaps guys, I asked if this team and he replied NO)

(speculative  team of Tom and Tyler (thumbnail,click for larger)



Quote
Two white guys, in orange or red shirts

Saw them about 500meters from cathedral

He then said it is confusing: perhaps they were 2 women

( I asked why he said that?)
Quote
They covered their heads (with a cloth)--i think itís their tradition clothes, like a religious covering

He then signed "a agreement for using picture of me that they had recorded"

I asked for the closest airport he replied Noi Bai airport, about 40 km


Further spec/discussion goes in the Speculation thread please

Sighting at Seoul Tower two days ago - two teams sighted in this video, not sure how to bring across to here.

One older F/F team reading a clue and a M/M team in orange running - appears to be Tom/Tyler?

There were a few Instagram posts the other day hashtagged #AmazingRace that I initially discounted because I didn't think the timing made sense/didn't show teams or anything, but that's making me reconsider.

The posts in question were taken at "Uluru Park", which appears to be an alternate name for Uhuru Park in Nairobi, Kenya. I think the timing could make sense if the Mongolia visit was Ulaanbaatar first, the Gobi Desert second, then they crossed the border and flew out via Beijing. But surely we would have gotten spoilers for that?

Awe I'm sorry :/ Didn't mean for that, I'm still kind of new to this. Hopefully we can get some sightings instead.

Not your fault. This is a production error that has been removed. Some things have the potential to negatively affect the actual SHOW, so we try not to repost. Thanks for understanding!

Not sure if this is us but I came across this mention on twitter from a user based in Lilongwe, Malawi - could be accurate as they were just in Zimbabwe? Posted 5/9.

Hot100 FM (A Darwin, NT Radio Station) posted an instagram story, spotting the racers (it is currently their 3rd story - the first two that play are about a kid smoking at a Turkish soccer game).

I see what looks like a leg...perhaps a start of one?

What I do NOT see is a MAT with teams lined up awaiting a finish...

Didn't see this posted anywhere, but seems to be a second tweet supporting Malawi. Can't be sure it's not coming from the same source, but might put more weight to the original sighting
