It's team 3 and team 10 per the timeline, I've added the pics in now. Sorry for the delay :)

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:

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.

The height difference is there but we'll see. I doubt there's 13 teams.

Isn't team 5 M/F?

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

Could it be an intersection task + Roadblock, involving 1 team member of each team working together with another team member in completing a task

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?

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".
