This thread is theWORKZONE of our spoilers.

This is where ALL the spoiler speculation/discussion of the TAR AUS 5 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:

It looks like 6 MF teams, 3 FF teams and 2 MM teams.

+ 1 MF "Salvage team". What is it supposed to mean? Any idea?

Apparently one FF team came last to task, omg, I really hope they somehow survived this, but I am not positive.

We probably have 12 teams and the 12th place team was saved by a Salvage Pass. This could be Leg 2.

Winton! What a weird place to start!  :funny: It’s in the middle of bloody nowhere!

The longest town is Longreach, around 110 miles away. It is possible that they started in Longreach and then drove to Winton for the leg’s tasks? ???

There is no proof this was the START. Possible this was...or was LEG 2...

And we're off!!!

Surprised we are starting in Queensland but that's fantastic and I'm now way more excited for this season! I am in Qld too so very keen to follow them.

For a town with a tiny population, Winton has quite a lot of tourist attractions and activities. It is notably famous for having one of the largest collections of dinosaur fossil findings in Australia! I'm speculating that this would be a self-drive leg from Longreach (only 2 hrs by car)

Confirmed/speculated tasks in Winton
  • Outback Dunny Derby outside Gregory Hotel - confirmed sightings of teams
  • The Musical Fence Museum (potential task could involve bush orchestra) - filming sighted
  • Waltzing Matilda Centre (very iconic Aussie song - would be surprised if ignored) - pure speculation
  • Dinosaur Canyon Centre / Australian Age of Dinosaurs / Lark Quarry Dinosaur Trackways - pure speculation

Possible tasks in Longreach
  • Qantas Founders' Museum (again, I would be shocked if ignored) - pure speculation
  • Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame (iconic museum of outback pioneers)

We probably have 12 teams and the 12th place team was saved by a Salvage Pass. This could be Leg 2.

Yeah, it looks like it. It will be strange to have 12 teams still racing at leg 2, 11 teams at leg 3... Unless there is some double elimination twist, considering leg 1 was NEL because of Salvage Pass being used, we will have elimination after elimination with only 1 NEL remaining. I am here for it, tbh. But kind of scared how editing will look like with so many teams racing...

Au2 did a good job in editing delivering teams’ personality enough even for an episode with 10 teams racing

Magnetic Island is a fantastic location! I was just there last month and know the area well! :conf:

The island is quite small so I doubt there would be two legs there. Are we sure they were there on Monday? They seem to have definitely been at Picnic Bay (a settlement on Magnetic Island) today.

I am speculating:
  • Leg 1 - Cairns (Tuesday October 6)
  • Leg 2 - Longreach/Winton (Friday October 9)
  • Leg 3 - Townsville (Sunday October 11)
  • Leg 4 - Magnetic Island (Wednesday October 14)

The other bizarre thing is that there's 2 full days between Townsville and Magnetic Island sightings despite being right near each other geographically ???

Wondering if some of the Townsville leg spilled over into the 12th, otherwise we have a real long extended pitstop  :duno:

We don't know what Covid things are happening. If they are requiring testing after every leg there could well be longer intervals between legs.

I'm guessing we are on Leg 5 ish

Leg 3 Castle Hill/ Palm Island
Leg 4 Magnetic Island/Picnic Bay
Leg 5 Fitzroy Island

Oh and Picnic Bay Jetty was a pitstop apparently. I missed seeing the mat the other day.

Wasn't expecting them to go back up north back to Cairns! I have updated the speculated route below:
  • Leg 1 - Cairns/Newell (Tuesday October 6)
  • Leg 2 - Longreach/Winton (Friday October 9)
  • Leg 3 - Townsville/Palm Island (Sunday October 11/Monday October 12?)
  • Leg 4 - Magnetic Island - Pitstop: Picnic Bay Jetty (Wednesday October 14)
  • Leg 5 - Cairns/Fitzroy Island/Green Island (Friday October 16)

If they were filming at Fitzroy on Friday and potentially sighted at Darwin Airport around 8am local time on Monday 19 October, I suspect they would be arriving in Darwin?

There don't seem to be any direct flights from Cairns to Darwin on Sunday or Monday that would fit that sighting ... and even via Brisbane or Adelaide does not seem as likely looking at flight times?

Alternatively, they could have flown JQ920 CNS-DRW 14:20-16:25 direct on Saturday 17 October ? And raced in Darwin on Sunday?

Assuming this is Leg 7, we are missing 1 or 2 teams.

Teams Sighted for Leg 7: 1,2,5,7,11,12

Last Sighted in Leg 5: 3,10

Haven't been Seen since Leg 2: 4,6,9

Presumably Eliminated in Leg 2: 8

Leg 5 was raced by 9 teams, I think, because 2nd and last super early NEL is unlikely.

Which means that 3 of these teams were first three boots: 4, 6, 9, 8. All rootable underdog teams. Boot order is disaster, this season will not be worth watching once again.

This is problem with TARAU... They always cast superathletic boring teams and then obvious fodders who are eliminiated one by one at the beggining. It's super predictable then. I wish casting was more balanced, tbh.

My friend's brother lives in South Australia. He saw them in Port Lincoln doing something called "Tuna Toss" (an annual festival down there).
He said one team was very dramatic! This was today!

Just a thought.....are we sure about how many legs that have been filmed?

I've heard in a podcast that they have a longer filming schedule this season, due to the Corona-virus. Not sure if it's true or not, but if it's true, maybe they've only filmed 2-3 legs in Queensland, instead of 7.

We aren't sure and there hasn't been a ton of sightings. I'm guessing we are on Legs 7 to 9 with about 5 to 6 teams left.

We had 6 teams sighted last Tuesday and we might be missing 1-2 teams that day. So maybe 4 to 5 Queensland legs. :duno:

Male on Team 5, Jordan, Skye/Jake and African-Australian guy on team 12

I've fallen behind on the Timeline and am updating now, but that guy you've circled on the far right is defs not the guy in Team #5. He has a full blown beard, where in the team pic that's not the case. Pretty sure there's a M/M beard team, as seen here that was just missed in Winton. I guess we have 13+ teams.

Assuming that is accurate... it possibly means we're looking at something longer than 12 legs. They've been moving pretty fast considering any lockdowns and have travel restrictions.

It's Team 5 and they are on the left in that airport pic. The sunlight may have erased their beards in that pic in Winton. :funny:

I doubt there are 13 teams.

Growing a beard of that length and thickness takes more than 2 weeks, probably closer to two months. I'm happy to be wrong, but I remain thoroughly unconvinced. It just does not add up to me, looks like a completely different team.

Couldn't tell at first but now I think it's the MM team above.

So the white team from the promo is 13th place team, I am assuming.

I think we will have starting line/mid-leg elimination at 1st leg and team 12 will be saved by salvage pass. TAR15's scenario to prevent 2 teams being eliminated in 1 leg.

Can't be them, I assume we might even have more than 13 teams. Team 13 is seen in a later leg unless I'm mistaken. Or maybe this is Team #14 because "Team 13" has a beard?  :funny:

Team 13 is seen only at starting line and then doing confessional which could be pre-race.

I mean we have video of 12 teams from leg 2, so it would be extremely strange that some team(s) picture(s) would be missing from it for some reason.

This could be absolutely nothing, but Hamish & Andy have an introduction by a listener every episode of their podcast - the one from a few weeks back had a guy from Broken Hill who was "about to go out and film a secret TV project". Could we have missed a Broken Hill route marker?

So the white team from the promo is 13th place team, I am assuming.

I think we will have starting line/mid-leg elimination at 1st leg and team 12 will be saved by salvage pass. TAR15's scenario to prevent 2 teams being eliminated in 1 leg.

Can't be them, I assume we might even have more than 13 teams. Team 13 is seen in a later leg unless I'm mistaken. Or maybe this is Team #14 because "Team 13" has a beard?  :funny:

Team 13 is seen only at starting line and then doing confessional which could be pre-race.

I mean we have video of 12 teams from leg 2, so it would be extremely strange that some team(s) picture(s) would be missing from it for some reason.

Or it's not Leg 2. We could have the Salvage Pass twist be our first NEL? Honestly at this point, I wouldn't be surprised if we had FIFTEEN teams. I don't think these guys in the promo are the same as the speculated "Team #13".

It's very possible that we have 14 teams for some odd reason.

The Newells may have been eliminated in Newell, Queensland :funny: and we have that beard team that came after the 12 team bucket challenge.

I don't think this salvage team twist is as black and white as we think it is.

I agree that we have 14 teams.

I compared sightings with promo and you can see bearded man legs in the promo (t-shirt and shoes are matching with photo of them we have).

I reviewed buckets video once again and you can see gap between Team 11 and Team 12 buckets. So I believe beards were doing that challenge and were using that bucket/helmet when the video was taken.

Newells are first boot for sure. I am still speculating that they are victims of starting line/midleg elimination. Team 12 probably came last 1st leg to pit stop but was saved by salvage pass.

Beards might be Sikh as well because they look like they are wearing something related to a turban.

4 MMs, 3 FFs and 7 MFs.

8 MFs possibly.  :lol: I think team 5 is MF. I think they are muslims because the lady looks like she is wearing hijab in that photo.

I counted Team 5 as MF - probably Dwesmond racing with his mom. That's my guess.

Filming might not necessarily be over, just...check back in 2 weeks.

If Australia's Covid rules are anything like Canada's, they may have to self-isolate at some point for crossing certain state borders. They did mention in articles that this season may take a much longer than usual filming period.

They are for sure still filming. I thought it was over the other day because of Malaan being active.

Then, film crews were spotted in Tasmania. Most of our suspected racers are offline SM; it's just Malaan and Tina active atm for some reason.

I think the theory that we have at least 14 teams is probably right.

Rewatching this video: https://twitter.com/coasterpaul/status/1314452027401859077

There's a weird gap in between the second to last team's box shown and the last (Salvage) team's box shown. The gap looks big enough to possibly fit about 2 boxes in between them.

Could it be possible that those gaps are just from two teams that had already shown up, and being in the lead, already completed the task by the time this was filmed? That's at least what I'm thinking.

(There's also potentially enough room for a 15th box at the very end of the table too... but maybe that's just purposely how they set it up.)

Wouldn’t be surprised if The Amazing Race Australia follows the format of Australian Survivor (and every other Australian reality show) by having large casts, long episodes and multiple episodes per week. The cheaper local version is the perfect time to experiment with a 15-20 leg season with a large cast and more non eliminations.

Is 2MM/1FF F3 confirmed?

Because lol if it's true considering that there were 6 same gender teams opposite to 8 MF teams. And from these 6 same gender teams 2 were first two boots and 3 made it to F3. So there will be back to back MF teams slaughter with blue FF team somewhere between it, lol.

I almost forgot but Malaan and Tina never made it to Tasmania. They resurfaced on social media before that leg.

Second, it's possible we have more undiscovered locations and teams.

With all the new videos, we (we exclude me because I'm not in Australia and can't see all the videos lol) should do a recap of all new locations revealed in the new videos.
Like Gold Coast Aquatic Centre, + we see a pitstop in that video, do we know where that is?

I'd love an updated route with links from show/media info.

If someone takes it on feel free to start a new thread something like ROUTE including media info maybe? Or add into the others. But probably best for ONE person with techy skills  to do this. And the time to keep it up.

New article with Beau gives out some details:

Quote
The program was filmed between September and November.

"We had one quarantine to start, and when we got back to Sydney we finished there, and it took a couple of weeks to finish there, so we didn't have to quarantine again," Ryan said.

"We were mapping out places, some that I hadn't even heard of... Just (being able) to showcase them," he said. "Some of the islands we got off at, the top of the country, Queensland, parts of Tasmania.

Considering how we currently have the finale + our final sightings as Canberra.... maybe that could have been F4 and they actually ended in Sydney? Or is the quote just about quarantine being in Sydney?  :didimiss:
