Looks like Winton is leg 3, as per the new episode description that just dropped for Wednesday:

Quote
Seeking help from the locals for an iconic outback challenge, the Dunny Derby, their newfound friends must take their place on the 'throne' for a race across town.

So based on that I'd say the twin models are sadly toast in Leg 1.

Crap, yeah probably than.

Unless they got those descriptions mixed up. Not sure how often/if that ever happens?

WoW!!

AND THIS: T-Junction is a real game changer!

Only in the sense that it's literally "screw this, we're doing Survivor for an episode".

There was moment of Beards/Cousins/Cowboys/Dancers hugging in one of the promos so I am assuming it was from T-Junction and based on numbers of teams it happened in F8. The other team would be then AMANDA & ASH/CHRIS & ALEISHA/SKYE BLUE & JACK and one unkown team who would be voted out and placed 8th if this team lost. Which is very possible because the team from the promo was hugging and celebrating...

Honestly, with there being an estimated 21-24 legs, it's possible that the first episode ends with a "you're still racing/double length leg." Followed by it being non-elimination the next episode.

Do we know where they are at 2:06?

Hot air balloon in what looks like a desert climate.

I'm trying to possibly make out the teams on the hot air balloon

Oh, so if we find out who it is in the hot air balloon we could find out some of the people who make it that far.

The only one I can make out for sure is Dolor.

Are the two females on the far left Ashleigh and Amanda do you think?

You can improve the video quality btw, which makes it easier to see

The hot air balloon looks like it has Amanda and Ashleigh in the front left.

On the right side, it looks like the back has some dark haired male or female and the twin models next to them.

In front of them is Dolor (I assume Holly must be next to him off-camera) and next to him is Skye-Blue and Jake.

That's what it looks like to me anyway

There is another shoot of air ballon in 0:15. https://twitter.com/amazingrace_au/status/1351635546397761537

I see Amanda & Ashleigh, Holly & Dolor, Skye Blue & Jake and Ashley from Ashley & Chris, so 4 teams. In the shoot right next to it in that promo you can see another different 4 teams hugging. So my guess is this is our F8 and these shoots are from T-junction.

If they’re down to only 8 teams on Alice springs (rumored leg 9 of 24), this is going to be a LONG last half to the race. Unless there’s actually five teams on the hot air balloon so we have 10 teams at that time.

The Sikh guys aren’t in either grouping of four though and we know they make it that far.

So either:

1. They won the previous leg and was non-elimination (though I don’t know how salvage would work in this case)

2. There’s five teams per grouping so 10 racers at this point

3. There’s 3 groupings of 4, so 12 racers at this point

There has been a HUGE amount of great detecting going on in the ROUTE thread.

If you haven't yet read it you may want to take a look.

With that detecting has come some great team speculation placements which I am going to move here.

If anything looks out of sync go check out the route thread!

I see beards and cowboys in first air baloon in the promo.

2nd air baloon in the promo is better view of already identified teams - Amanda & Ashleigh, Holly & Dolor, Skye Blue & Jake and Ashley & Chris.


It's most likely T-junction. Alice Springs is too early for them to eliminate 8th place team imo so I am speculating this is F10 and the shot of 4 teams hugging is after they survived this twist after eliminating one other unknown team.

I speculated that but if the bears are on that team than that doesn't make sense as they can't eliminate them. So possibly the beards are just out of site during them hugging?

I guess I'm confused where you're seeing Chris and Aleisha in the promo though?

What I see is that on the right side of the hot air balloon in the back are (from left to right): Holly and the twin models

In the front right side of the balloon I see (left to right): Dolor, Skye Blue, and Jake


On the left side in the front I see what I think is Ashleigh and Amanda

In the back of the left side I can't make out who it is but I'm pretty certain there's somebody there as one of the proms show people waving from the back left side. I think they may be lying down in that one promo as I can vaguely make out two heads moving

So I could be very wrong but I think it is:

Team A: Alex and Jack, Amanda and Asheigh, Holly and Dolor, Skye-Blue and Jake, mystery fifth team?

Team B: Brendon and Jackson, Dwes and Katherine, Jaskirat and Anurag, Jordan and Violeta, Sefa and Jessica

Unknown (one of these are on team A): Chris and Aleisha, Jobelle and Rani, Jude and Shannon, Malaan and Tina, Shane and Deb


It looks like Jude and Shannon are probably the first boots at this point. Whoever the last team is on team A you can see a white (or possibly Asian I guess) hand waving so it can't be Malaan and tina.

Thanks for this. Could you see if you could also get a better quality photo of the other hot air balloon one? (The one we think the cowboys, Sikhs, etc. are in).

Guessing we have 16 legs. 24 is too much

16 legs means we have to eliminate 11 teams in 15 legs for a final 3. 4 non-elims.

Final 8 seems pretty clear more or less.

(1) It's an Australian reality show and usual rules do not apply.

(2) It was filmed during Covid Times when they were struggling to make new content and usual rules do not apply.

(3) These producers have already established they don't particularly care for many of the standard elements of the TAR format.

(4) We have evidence of at least 20 legs.

(5) It's an Australian reality show and usual rules do not apply.

Best I can do. Little more brightness, more contrast; but every time I try to zoom, the cap is less clear

Thanks for doing this!

Yeah, I think it's Amanda and Ashleigh on the front left of the car.

In the back right (in left to right order): Holly and the model twins

In the front right I think it is Dolor, Skye Blue, and Jake


Not sure who is in the back left yet
