New article out revealing that Beau returned to host the season in a leg taking place in Medellin, Colombia. The season experienced snowy weather in Athens, Santorini, and Turkey.

He also lost his bag on the way to Colombia and ran out of clothes so he has a Pit Stop in Belize where he's just wearing a towel.

Just some Pit Stop photos:

New article: https://www.smh.com.au/culture/tv-and-radio/travel-has-never-looked-so-good-as-the-amazing-race-tries-a-world-first-20220819-p5bb8q.html

Important details:
-Someone had a panic attack in Morocco over a task involving "running across hot coals, hurling herself through rings of fire and body-slamming her way through a brick wall."
-Leg 1 has a task involving "a spice-guessing game".
-"In Greece, a braying donkey liberated itself with a swift kick and had to be pursued through an ancient village. Sleep deprivation and physical exhaustion amplified minor tiffs into promotion-worthy slanging matches. And what began as a race to the summit of a mountain was thwarted by a howling blizzard, forcing authorities to evacuate."
-Production was not allowed to film in several airports during the season.

  • Still trucking along.
I get the feeling they filmed the run at the start and reading of the clue on a different day to this, perhaps the day before as teams left Melbourne. This is because the teams weren't wearing their jackets at the start line we saw on Instagram, and there is a clip of Heath/Toni reading their first clue in good weather whereas this looks to be a wet day...

Episode descriptions for Episode 4-6:

Episode 4: Racers arrive in Athens for a thrilling round of archery, and a visit to the fabled Temple of Poseidon, before facing a tricky detour and a spanakopita feeding frenzy that may determine their fate.

Episode 5: Teams test their driving skills and go fishing from the docks, before they must lead a donkey up a cliff, and jump into a parkour challenge across Santorini's rooftops in the adventure of a lifetime.

Episode 6: Teams race to Mt Parnassus in the Greek Alps, where they must hold their own traditional Greek wedding ceremony, and dive into a frosty challenge. Will someone be sent home on this leg of the race?

So we're moving to another country for week 2.
So despite not included in description, from what we have from the sightings, episode 3, which would be leg 2 for both groups, is when the merge happens.

Was rewatching Ep3. Which had a notice on the corner, indicating Ep4 will be on Sunday.
Double checking the Network 10 tv guide.
Indeed, we're getting

Episode 4 on Sun 09/04 (90 minutes)
Episode 5 on Mon 09/05 (60 minutes)
Episode 6 on Tue 09/06 (60 minutes)

Still 3 shows next week, but slightly shifted dates.

It was listed as Sunday-Tuesday when the descriptions dropped. Think this was always the plan since Sunday premiere week was occupied by The Masked Singer finale.

Episode descriptions for Episode 7-9: (same as this week, Episode 7 airing on Sunday is 90 minutes and the rest are 60.)

Episode 7: Teams race to the Turkish harbour city of Izmir, where belly dancing, magic carpet rides, and blessed baked goods await. Who will soar through the challenges and who will find the going too tough?

Episode 8: Teams take on a Turkish wrestler and make a traditional Evil Eye bead, before a detour sees them opt for learning a traditional dance or rolling Mesir paste. Who will make it to the pit stop in time?

Episode 9: In the Turkish fishing village of Alacati, teams search for the world's trickiest ice cream vendors and dive into a bowl of Turkish delight. But it's a jet car water race that truly tests our teams.

The second Turkish leg will likely be in the city of Manisa - the same Aegean region as ¤zmir and Alašati - due to the presence of Mesir paste (macunu).

Episode descriptions for Episode 10-12: (same as usual, first episode of the week is 90 minutes, rest is 60)

Episode 10: Teams vamos to bustling Bogota, where they must choose between bicycle polo or emerald identification, before playing an explosive game of Colombia's national sport, tejo, on their way to the pit stop.

Episode 11: In Medellin, teams must decide to replicate a flower bouquet, or search for a special mark in a sack of beans, before tasting local Colombian delicacies. Who has the stomach for this leg of the race?

Episode 12: In coastal Cartagena, teams must make and deliver a tray of cheese arepas, before selling 20,000 pesos worth of fruit to the locals. Finally, they must master the art of the intricate Colombian salsa.

Wonder if this 90-60-60 pattern will also be kept for the final trio of episodes in Australia.

Episode 13: Racing through the jungle and busy streets of Belize, teams face multiple challenges as they head into a tough Eat or Beat Detour. Then, a heart-pounding foot race to the finish sends one team home.

Episode 14: To avoid their race ending in ruins, teams go back to school and pick between a game of Pok-A-Tok or an ancient number puzzle. Finally, they must memorise the months of the complex Mayan calendar.

Episode 15: On the scenic island of Caye Caulker, teams must choose to learn a local dance or try a hair-braiding challenge, before a totes coco loco Roadblock. Who will be first to meet Beau on the Pit Stop mat?

And an unfortunate and disappointing sign of the future - the season's getting burned off.

https://tvtonight.com.au/2022/09/update-the-amazing-race-australia.html

Quote
Next week 10 screens the series from Sunday 26th ľ Thursday 29th.

This suggests 10 is looking to wrap the season early, following disappointing numbers.

We get five episodes next week. Will release episode descriptions for Episode 16 and 17 once I get them.

Next week's burnoff at Wednesday and Thursday is likely to make room for The Real Love Boat (AU) premiering on October 5-6.

Expect Episodes 18-20 to air on Sunday-Tuesday (October 2-4) and then the finale on October 9.
