Oh, I sure hope that's not true. Just from reading the team bios and looking at the pictures they appear to have the advantage. I wasn't rooting for them just because of that (gotta love an underdog!)

I knew who it was just from the way you are all talking lol

According to the article everyone including family members all signed contracts not to "let it slip" I think if this keeps happening (come on two years in a row, IF they are the winners) then they should be penalized exactly what the article says is in the contract.

I just read in my local paper that the next leg will be in Charleston SC on the Battery and may have something to do with Shrimp boats Heres the story........Im excited thats where I live

The third leg of the popular reality show "The Amazing Race: Family Edition" is coming to The Battery when the show airs at 9 p.m. Tuesday on local CBS affiliate WCSC-TV, according to a well-placed source.

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed that Charleston is featured in the Tuesday episode of the eighth edition of the Emmy Award-winning reality show. Typically, the show's route and details of the competition are a highly guarded secret.

"They were around The Battery, which is where they had to go to find one of their clues," the source said. As to a rumor that "The Amazing Race: Family Edition" involved local shrimp boats, the source said, "No comment."

Others were willing to speak on the record about the show. Independence Air spokesman Rick DeLisi said the airline flew five families participating in the reality show from Washington's Dulles airport to Charleston International Airport in July.

"Five of the eight teams chose to fly with us," DeLisi said. "And ultimately they went to Charleston. We're not sure what they did or how much time they spent in Charleston. We were only privy to the details of what was going to happen at our location."

Perrin Lawson, deputy director of the Charleston Convention and Visitors Bureau, said competing families raced through the CVB during filming of the show in July.

"They literally just ran through the building. It was with the camera crews chasing after them. From what I get from our people, they said it was kind of mayhem and nobody really stopped to ask any questions or anything. They just ran through the building and that was it," Lawson said.

"The Amazing Race: Family Edition" is an adventure reality show hosted by Phil Keoghan that pits 10 teams of families against each other in a race around the world for about 30 days. At every destination, each family must compete in a series of challenges, some mental and some physical, and only when the tasks have been completed will they learn their next destination. Families who are the farthest behind will gradually be eliminated as the contest progresses, with the first team to arrive at the final destination winning $1 million.

CBS' official description of the upcoming episode of "The Amazing Race: Family Edition" says: "The families take a spin in a NASA centrifuge on the third leg of the race." So it sounds like the competitors are passing through here on their way to Florida.

The race began with 10 four-person teams Sept. 27. Unlike the show's first seven editions, "The Amazing Race: Family Edition" featured teams composed exclusively of related family members.

The teams traveled about 30,000 miles, and some of the teams include children as young as 8.The new format sparked criticism from some fans that "The Amazing Race" has become a glorified field trip or family vacation of sorts to historical or educational locations rather than a grueling race around the world, as in previous episodes.

The 10 families who began the race are: the Godlewski sisters of Des Plaines, Ill.; the Weaver family (widow and kids) of Ormond Beach, Fla.; the Gaghan family of Glastonbury, Conn.; the Black family of Woodbridge, Va. (eliminated 9/27); the Linz family (siblings) of Cincinnati; the Rogers family of Shreveport, La. (eliminated 1-0/4) ; the Schroeder family (dad, stepmom and kids) of New Orleans; the Bransen family (dad and daughters) of Park Ridge, Ill.; the Aiello family (father and sons-in-law) of Mansfield, Mass.; the Paolo family (father, mother and two sons) of Carmel, N.Y.

I can't help but wonder whether this wasn't another one of those decoys. Seems like the show has taken great pains to keep the teams from kicking up too much of a fuss in public, and how far a drive is SC from Virginia? What would they do with their camping gear?

Plus, remember in the preview they showed the Linz brothers going round and round in that NASA space thing? Where is that - isn't there a NASA center in NC?

They're such tricksters with the decoy thing, I'm just not sure what to believe :blink::)

I thought I saw a commercial for AR where it showed shrimp cages being dumped out into a boat so I am inclined to agree with this spoiler...also I saw the centrafuge thing but don't know where it was at.

******************

Just looked up Space Camps and there are 2 in Florida, 2 in Alabama, and 1 in Virginia...It could be any of those....Can't wait till tomorrow to find out.

Yes, if the NASA thing is in Virginia they could still head back to the airport in Washington. Or even if that part was the decoys, the part about then doing the shrimping in SC could still be true.

Or maybe last weeks spoiler comes true and they go up to Toronto - gosh I hope one of these turns out to be at least partially true. Who doesn't love an inside scoop!!! :)

OMG - after getting burned on the Toronto 'spoiler,' I was skeptical about this one being true and it was! (I still told people about it though, JIC :) )

Found this article about the finale. Only spoiler is the location.

Amazing Race finish line in T.O.?

By STEVE TILLEY -- Toronto Sun

The Bransens of Amazing Race: Family Edition. The team was spotted at Union Station.

The Amazing Race is heading for the finish line -- and it could be in Toronto.

In the two-hour season finale of The Amazing Race: Family Edition, airing next Tuesday at 9 p.m. on CTV and CBS, the Linz, Bransen and Weaver clans duke it out for the $1-million grand prize that goes to the family that finishes first.

But will that be in U.S. or Canadian dollars? CTV yesterday confirmed what the Sun reported in September: The Amazing Race is leaving the United States for what will be only the second time this season, and it appears the series' finish line could be here on Canuck soil.

The preview scenes for this Tuesday's finale, while not identifying the locations, shows the families jet-boating in the Niagara gorge, searching for clues in the bleachers at Montreal's Olympic Stadium and racing through Pearson International Airport, with a Greater Toronto Airports Authority shuttle clearly visible in one shot.

The preview also shows the families participating in the very Canuck pastime of curling, and doing a trapeze challenge at Montreal's National Circus School.

Sun reader Andrew Bagley recalled running into the Bransen and Weaver families in front of Toronto's Union Station on July 30, where a hotdog vendor gave them a clue that directed them to Polson Pier, aka the Docks.

"The women looked at me and said, 'We are on The Amazing Race, we need your help, do you know where Polson Pier is?' " said Bagley.

"Like a true Canadian, I replied, 'Did you say Molson or Polson?'"

Do you really want to know who wins?

If not, do not read further.

I was browsing through the CBS Amazing Race video page, and clicked on the links for "Week 12" and "Week 13", which brought up a list of videos. Evidently, the CBS staff were getting some work done in advance by uploading the videos, even though the links don't work yet.

clips4go.jpg

When I clicked on the ADD link for the one entitled GRAND PRIZE WINNERS, a description of the video popped up, revealing the winner.

Do so yourself, or click on the snapshot I made.

Remember, you heard it at Morty's first! (Well, unless someone else somewhere has already posted this, I haven't checked, since I got all excited about getting the scoop.)
