I'd like us to keep the LIVE thread for that...meaning  LIVE that happened during filming.


Opening this one for new spoilers we glean during watching episodes and Promos.


The EP live watches are more for discussion of what we see. But let's use this for our SPOILERS grabs!


If you would like to copy your posts over to hear from the LIVE thread please feel free.


 :tu everyone!

I did not watch last episode yet but apparently one team will be medically evacuated, is it true?

Do you think they will bring back Judy & Shannon to replace this team like they did with cousins? They better do. Cause I would be pissed if they will not... You put this "rule" so stick with it. It's even more unfair otherwise.

Came on here to see all the hate from last night. While I stopped watching and really no intention to pick up I figured I'd throw in my two cents since I think this is where the hot air balloon spoiler may come in where I thought I saw the twin models.

Somebody said on Reddit it sounds like it was Shane's voice saying they couldn't continue on.

I think it's two guys on the hot air balloon and one I always thought could be Shane but the other person looked too "boyish" to be Deb. If both of their partners get medevaced, I wonder if Shane and Jack could combine to make a new team.

At this point, fair is not in the production's vocabulary so we'll see what happens.

Rewatched this promo because of all the spec regarding the T-Junction teams- it certainly does seem like we have our Final 8 in Alice Springs per the hot air balloons. However, I also noticed the Henley-on-Todd regatta, also in Alice Springs (1:29 in the above preview, where Aleisha says, "I can't do this").

Correct me if my understanding of the T-Junction is wrong, but it seems as if teams are intersected for the entire leg. Therefore, I suggest that we might have two legs in Alice Springs, unless the regatta is also part of the T-Junction (though it would have to be a relay since we only see Jordan and Violeta completing this task).

I'm not 100% sure Alice Spring is final 8...
It's suppose to be leg 9.. would it make sense to have 6 teams out in the first 8 legs, then 5 for the last 12 lol

The most logical is that it's at final 10. 2 groups of 5

BUT in that video where he talked about the new twists, the T-Junction is showed to have 6 spots on each side of team pictures...
Could it be?
But that would mean no more team eliminated in the next 6 legs, which makes no sense.

Maybe T-Junction is leg 5? Wasn't in that leg supposed to be that Survivor kind of challenge we seen in preview? There were 6 people hanging on the pole... Maybe that was one mega team?

It would mean that they would need to bring back Jody & Shannon to replace quitting/medevac team to prove this theory of 12 teams doing T-Junction.

In the same facebook video I posted above, six teams are in a speedboat together- could the T junction occur twice?

I think the T Junction is at final 10 since it has the promo cap of the cowboys, Kimberley cousins, Violetta/her boyfriend, and Sefa/Jessica celebrating at what looked to be the pitstop. The Sikhs must just be out of the screen view during that as I'm also pretty sure they're in that group.

The other hot air balloon had Skye-Blue and Jake, Holly and Dolor, Asheligh and Amanda, and Chris and Aleisha. There's another team who we can't make out also on the hot air balloon (you can only see the side of their heads). Originally I thought it was the twin models but than just assumed it must be Deb and Shane.

However, it looks like Deb and Shane may very well be medevaced this next episode so I'm not really sure.

I'd be very surprised if both the twin models returned but I guess it is possible?

Or I thought possibly they'd have Jack and Deb combine to make a team since both of them had a partner unable to continue.


I don't think the T Junction can be at final 12 as it doesn't seem to be in this next leg and if it's a non-elimination leg than the next leg would only have 11 teams (as one would have the first class pass). I guess its possible they planned for a "you're still racing" leg at final 12 but that obviously has been ruined by somebody getting medevaced.

yeah, I think the medevac is Deb and Shane. The only other team it could've been was the dad and daughter but he's seen at 1:47 in a challenge that the description from episode 5 seems to match:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2jF6ZXAS2k&t=419s

So whoever the two mystery people is in the hot air balloon are an even  bigger mystery now lol


https://www.facebook.com/AmazingRaceAU/videos/2594882827468636

For reference, the link above at 2:06 is the hot air balloon shot in question. The two people in the back right of the hot air balloon (dark hair and facing the side) are the ones in question. I'd use the link (watch in high quality) as the screenshot we got got rid of some of the details of the shot due to the coloring

Based on this:

Show content
It seems that Shane and Deb U-Turn Holly & Dolor. Since the former are speculated to be medically removed, they likely last until Leg 5.

Also, the image of the Sikhs and Sefa & Jessica could be a normal Pit Stop scene, but based on the Sikhs' poses, it seems that they aren't checking in- could be another Salvage situation!

Honestly, my main takeaway from that preview is why does TARAUS try their best to spoil as much as they can in their previews  :groan:

They posted ad video on Instagram which is confirming medevac exit in today's episode. I wonder if that medevac is related to that fire challenge? Who do you think it is? Shane or Rani? Will they bring back Malaan & Tina to replace that team? (It's about time for another NEL considering there is supposed to be 24 legs this season.)

Don't think that's it because it would give a potentially lopsided team. Maybe it's for the endurance challenge tonight? There appears to only be 5 stations or 6.

Are we thinking another eliminated team will come back?
It's such a sh*t show that there's a lot fo NEL but team keep being medivac/out for other reasons. lol

I would love to see the girls get another shot (maybe they will do a tiny competition between the last two teams out to get back in?) They didn'T for the cousins because they were the only team out at that point.

They'll probably pick the team most recently eliminated since they only missed one leg. So Malaan & Tina.

All the eliminated teams have done exit press now - Dwes & Katherine didn't. I don't think we'll get a return.

Are we sure there will be 24 episodes?

That would mean in 19 remaining episodes there will be 11 NEL/cliffhanger ones.

What do you mean by exit press?

Also, keep in mind that Dwes and Katherine likely just didn't have the time to do it. The twins quit early the next morning, Dwes and Katherine probably found out before they could do exit press they were returning and immediately started getting prepared to return.

The infamous two people we still don't know in the hot air balloon makes me think somebody returns but who knows?

can somebody with better facial recognition tell me if at 2:06 that is Jake in the front on the far right (with the black hat on)? I'm beginning to think it is possibly not since we haven't seen him wearing any dark shirts yet

Ok but there is not going to be 24 legs if by leg 8 (or 9) they are down to 8 teams....

Is it possible we have a NEL for leg 7, and the winner doesn't have to do the the T-Jonction on leg 8?

That would make sense. It would also mean that Sefa & Jessica will win next leg if this theory is correct.

Victims of T-junction would be either Dwes & Katherine or Jordan & Violeta then, other teams were seen in next legs.

I still think the twist they talk about in the preview is some sort of cheat, so that we have
Sunday: Twist leg all 9 teams are still there
Monday: NEL, one team wins the first class ticket
Tuesday: Super T-Junction leg, ONE team eliminated for sure, we have 8 teams left

I just re:looked the trailer and one 'super team' is Cowboys/Super Sikh/Cousins/Dancers
In the balloon we can see: Girls/Skye-Blue & Jake/ Holly & Dolor/ High School sweethearts, so that really means either Jess/Sefa are out next or they win the first class ticket.

If not, that would mean we finish next week with 7 teams left, after 9 legs.
If the 24 leg is true, that would mean 13 legs for only 4 eliminations.

There's still no confirmation on the balloons being anything to do with the T-Junction (although the logic is that it'll be Leg 9, so they are the same leg).

Next three descriptions:
Quote
At the start of the day, the teams are left speechless when Beau reveals a shock twist that will change the state of play for the entire race.

Quote
The race accelerates to new heights when the teams must attempt an epic underwater helicopter escape challenge in one of the most terrifying tests of the race so far.

Quote
When strong winds take a stunning hot air balloon ride off course, the teams brace themselves for the twists and turns of the ninth leg of the race.

Can you share screenshot of that? I tried looking and didn't see them in any pics of that. I saw the hugging pic celebrating and it's really just the 4 teams I mentioned, and in the balloon it's hard to see everybody

The thing I'm confused about is why EVERYONE would get the hot air balloon ride. It can't be a task, it doesn't make sense as an activity during the Pit Stop. It reads more as a First Class Pass experience to me. Only logic I can think of is that the contestants do it whilst a return leg happens, but you'd have thought we'd have heard about that by now.

Surely there'll be some multi-episode legs now. They're on track to finish in about 15 legs total at this point.

Yeah I was thinking also for the finale it could be a 3 part ark (or at least 2)

It's NT definitely - the license plate has the NT colour and starts with "CD" - current issue is CE.

I think I might have solved the hot air balloon thing.

If we have an NEL Sunday (saving one team), then T-Junction Monday (with eight teams), the hot air balloon could be the winning team's reward from Leg 8. Did we only see four teams on the hot air balloon?

I think I've also identified where the cooking task is. Looks like Ashleigh & Amanda are making Laksa at Laksa House in Darwin.

The task judge is restaurant owner Amye Un (you can even see the partially obscured menu with "Amye's" on the side).

If we have an NEL Sunday (saving one team), then T-Junction Monday (with eight teams), the hot air balloon could be the winning team's reward from Leg 8. Did we only see four teams on the hot air balloon?

Both megateams were seen in two hot balloons in promo.

How will this stowaway team impact boot order?

We know that Leg 9 is T-junction with 8 teams we already identified.

So either Leg 7 & 8 are both ELs and stoway team and Sefa & Jessica are eliminated or Leg 7 is EL & Leg 8 is NEL with winners of that leg will skip Leg 9 because of First Class twist.

So there is possibility that footy mates could last only 1 or 2 legs.

Wasn't there speculation of an all new FF intruder team? Maybe they get brought in to make up for Shane & Deb going out on a non-elim

Well........... not sure if I should be happy or sad that I manifested this

So leg 8 is either EL with footy mates being eliminated or NEL with footy mates coming first and skipping T-junction in leg 9 with their first class pass.

My speculation revealing MJ & Chelsea in the first place was a sighting of "Yellow F/F team heading to Alice Springs". I think the latter is more likely... unless the shot of the four teams celebrating are celebrating voting them out  :groan:

Ok so tonight is 100% NEL. The yellow f/f teams was spotted going to Alice Spring also, so they won't be out tonight.
And T-Jonction is next leg, so 4 vs. 4

I don't see how it could be a non-elimination leg as I don't see how you could give a salvage and hazard to one of the teams considering they'll be racing in groups this next leg.

Well now that we know, I remember spotting those kangaroo plushie back in those first previews!!
What I don't know is about the cousins's salvage... I didn't see ep.8 but are we sure it"s the T-Junction leg?

If so, the new teams really got lucky to win this NEL because they would have been voted out if their team lost, they don't really know the other teams much.

Also, do we know who is voted out? It seems every team except the cousins and the dancers (and also the footie mates) are not spotted after this next leg!

Quote from: Leg 10
Travelling in style, the teams arrive in Coober Pedy via the legendary train expedition The Ghan, and are confronted by a huge surprise that will change the game.

10 sounds like the T-Junction leg. Once someone gets eliminated on leg 9, they'll have an even 4 vs. 4.

Pretty sure MJ & Chelsea make it to Port Lincoln. In the "Amazing SA" promo, we can hear a team exclaiming, "this is our home province!" while on the dunes. MJ & Chelsea are the only team from SA, so that's likely leg 12?

From the preview, it looks one one of the tasks is actually something I read about on reddit a couple months ago by chance. The Henley-on-Todd Regatta, which is like a boat race but on land.

You are right we can hear this is our home province when they are showing a video of the dune, but it doesn't mean they make it to Port Lincoln. They could say this when they open the clue telling them to take the Ghan to Coober Pedy (Which would make more sense for them to say for the first leg they go to S.A, rather than the third.

Plus with them winning the First class, we know they already make it there. So they could be eliminated at final 8 with the T-Junction.

But still with 24 episodes, that would bring 7 teams at the start of episode 11 so the Math doesn't make sense.. Unless there are still an army of stowaway teams lol

Based on the caps from E11 preview it looks like Jordan & Violetta won the leg (there was dancing challenge) and salvaged Skye Blue & Jake and sabotaged Chris & Aleisha.

I think we will loose Holly/Dollor tomorow! (Because they were not shown that much in the preview) A favorite going home means them or Jordan/Violeta but they were kind of shown in the preview a bit talking about going home so I have a bit of doubt it's them. (but again it could be). I just think that means the bodybuilders are safe.

I think we are getting then:

Leg 13: Last stowaway team joins, NEL 9 teams remain (one teams wins first class, safe from T-Junction)
Leg 14: T-Junction? 4 vs. 4, one team is out, 8 remains
Leg 15: NEL 8, teams remain

Leg 16: 8 teams in, one out  which means 7 left
Leg 17: NEL
Leg 18: 7 to 6

Leg 19: 6 to 5
Leg 20: NEL
Leg 21: 5 to 4

Leg 22 : Final elimination, 4 to 3
Leg 23: Finale part 1
Leg 24: Finale part 2

Then question remains if Leg 13 to 15 is Western Australia or NSW part 1
Leg 16/17/18 will be Tasmania
19/20/21/22 will be NSW
23/24 could be Canberra

Four teams are on the bubble - MJ/Chelsea, Bodybuilders, Holly & Dolor and Jordan & Violeta. MJ/Chelsea are immune, and the other two aren't fan-faves, so it's gotta be Jordan & Violeta.

Not sure if I'd put stock into that, this is also the same network that advertised Femi & Nick last season as the Game Changing Elimination. But yeah those four teams are all on the bubble.

There's at least one more QLD sighting (Crows Nest), so I reckon next week is all-QLD (Mungalla/Toowoomba/Brisbane), then TAS next week, NSW the week after and then NSW + ACT finale week.

Knew Victoria was a no-go, but it's a little disappointing about no Western Australia. Thought so after that shot of the pink lake near Broome.

But still excited for Tasmania and the capital Canberra still coming, since TAR has never visited these before :)
