More information revealed about Amazing Race 10 teams, challenges

In addition to various sightings of The Amazing Race 10‘s recent journey around the world, more information has leaked about the teams and the tasks they had to perform.

From people seated next to them on airplanes to those who randomly came across clue boxes, a lot of information has seeped into online forums and blogs. Of course, it’s not all necessarily true; many people have, in the past, been misled by clue boxes set up by organizers of local race-inspired events.

A poster at Reality Fan Forum has complied all of the spoiler-ish information s/he could find into two posts, if you don’t want to be surprised by various parts of the race. The location and task spoilers and team spoilers are, at the very least, interesting fodder for discussion–at least until more official word comes from CBS about the teams and the race actually begins airing.
