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?

We are looking at 7 to 8 teams left. 2 to 3 spots remain

Cowboys, Team 5, 7/11 and 12

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

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:
