Everyone:
RFF is ten times better than other "spoiler" forums such as Survivor Sucks because people like GeorgiaPeach, TexasLady, Rob, and Puddin make it better. There's no need to believe other forums when you have RFF, whose spoilers are more accurate than the others!

Looks like...

Leg1 Australia
Leg2 Japan
Leg3 China
Leg4 China
Leg5 India
Leg6 India
Leg7 Austria
Lrg8 Liechtenstein
Leg9 Switzerland
Leg10 Unknown
Leg11 Brazil
Leg12 USA

right?

Except I believe Australia is being split into 2 legs

It depends on your definition of 2 legs. Phil was present, and a greeter, but they never had the rest period in Sydney.

True. Which is why it could only be one leg. But since peach said that Australia is two episodes, I think thats whats confusing. There should be 12 legs. If you look at the leaderboard for TAR14, the TBC in China was counted as one leg, but only made that 11 legs in total with 12 episodes.

Whether Australia turns out to be one leg or two, I believe we're only looking for one location.

we have:
LA to Broken Hill, Australia via Sydney (either leg 1, or leg 1 & 2)
Australia to Yokohama, Japan (leg 2 or 3)
Japan to Lijiang, China (leg 3 or 4)
Lijiang to Kunming, China (leg 4 or 5)
China to Kolkata, India (leg 5 or 6)
Kolkata to ???, India (leg 6 or 7)
India to Vienna, Austria (leg 7 or 8)
Austria to Switzerland via Liechtenstein (leg 8 or 9)
Switzerland to Unknown (either leg 9 and 10, or just leg 10)
unknown to Rio, Brazil (leg 11)
Brazil to Miami (leg 12: finale)

The problem earlier was the need to clarify "episodes" from  "legs" and once we had that clarification, treating the TBC as one leg, two episodes, that gives us 11 legs, 12 episodes. That's an example why brevity and clarity are not always the same thing. :)

Could there be enough time for a second Brazil leg possibly? There appears to be a day and change free for the transatlantic flight, a brief "physical" leg like the first legs in Moscow, Beijing, and Prague in TAR 13-15, and a pit stop to have teams racing on the 10th in the morning.

In sum:

LA to Sydney to Broken Hill
Australia to Yokohama
Japan to Lijiang
Lijiang to Kunming
China to Kolkata
Kolkata to (probably India)
(probably India) to Vienna
Vienna to Liechtenstein to Switzerland
Switerzland to RDJ
RDJ
Brazil to Miami

If 9 of 11 teams were spotted in Miami airport, do you think the Elimination Station is located somewhere in the Caribbean?

All the teams came in via Sao Paulo. No idea where ES is....I was guessing Asia.

Hope it's in Asia and i feel that it is located in Southeast Asia if this is their ES location and these are my possible choices:

Thailand, Malaysia or the Philippines.

It could be the Australian outback for all we know (That or SE Asia).

Im thinking south america. Brazil maybe? and welcome to the rff

My two cents worth about the Elimination Station is that it is SE Asia or Australia. My only reasoning is that the first 4-5 elimination would've all taken place before teams left India, which would make that region geographically feasable. :cmas16

However, I think that RealityTVistheBest's idea of South America could also be very likely, since we know teams flew to Miami from Brazil. :cmas5

Considering all of the facts that we have accumulated, all I can conclude is:

ES is not in Antarctica! :cmaslol
I'd rather walk alone than let them throw dirty confetti. ♥

I think they may have changed up the ending but only on the spot. What I mean is that they knew everything was getting spoiled by us. Rob mentioned on his radio program how CBS was upset. It possible they decided the throw us all off at the last minute. Send all the teams to Brazil instead of Miami first.

I doubt it.I personally think the finale wouldn't be as exciting with just two teams-much less suspenseful.

I have wondered if the Sydney leg was supposed to be a TBC.......or they changed it to that because of that one plane having to land in Hawaii.....

Something I noticed when looking at the pictures:



Headscarves? In Miami? Especially since Kisha had no issue with showing off her crazy cool hairdo (and, given how TAR tries to orient teams by name as they face camera, I think it's Kisha in pic 9)?

I recall in TAR 13, when they had a stop in Bangkok en route to Delhi, they had teams wear headbands / bandannas / tied scarves in order to identify themselves as racers (Dan/Andrew had yellow). Perhaps, with everyone (or nearly everyone) there and grabbing clues, they felt a similar need to identify active racers?

An interesting find, Zack! This is possible!

Because of where they were and the weather conditions I would go with eastern France, southern Germany, or northern Italy.
I also wouldn't rule out the UK area.

Man.....the name of this place is on the tip of my tongue.....................oh yeah......its Switzerland..........sorry.....just couldnt help myself!!!

Try this:  :xmas49

http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,23692.msg583345.html#msg583345


So this means it was a TBC leg or 2 legs  :cmas5 :cmas5
If so there was no rest period in Sydney....

We have our newest twist!!


A 30 second Pit stop! Where you can take 2 deep breaths and get back out there!  :cmaslol


but then leg "1" is a NEL and I heard leg 3 was one to?!

that means a lot of eliminations in a row  :cmas5
