According to RFF, there are four men's teams (surprise, surprise -- three out of four of them are buff, alpha-male teams), two women's teams (one with white and blonde girls, one with two Indian girls, a first for the show and the second Indian team overall, following Vipul & Arti from TAR10), and five coed teams, at least one of whom is the requisite oldster team. One of the other coed teams consists of a doubly amputated young woman.

1. James & Jaymes (Chippendales)
2. Brent & Josh (gay goat farmers, Josh is a former drag queen)
3. M/M team of bearded, hippy-ish guys
4. F/F team of blonde twins or sisters
5. F/F Sri Lankan (not Indian) girls
6. M/F older couple, man has green mohawk
7. M/F of double amputee and partner
8. M/F generic young couple #1
9. M/F generic young couple #2
10. M/F wearing Michigan shirts, one much taller than the other, man looks like he could be older
11. remaining M/M team
Also, the first leg has ended. RFF detectives are unsure about whether it was elimination or non-elimination, but they're leaning toward elimination at the moment. The only known survivors at the moment are the bearded, hippy-ish guys, the two women's teams, and the Michigan team.

Updated team identification:
1. James & Jaymes (men's team, Chippendales)
2. Brent & Josh (men's team, gay goat farmers, Josh is a former drag queen)
3. Nadine & Natalie (women's team, Sri Lankan twins)
4. Amy & Daniel (double amputee and partner)
5. Robert & Joel (men's team, architecture professors at University of Michigan)
6. Men's team of bearded guys
7. Women's team of blonde women
8. Older coed couple, guy has green mohawk*
9. Generic YDC #1
10. Generic YDC #2
11. Either middle-aged couple or possibly father/daughter team.*
*According to RFF identification, leg one was an elimination leg, and one of these two teams was most likely eliminated first.

Nadine & Natalie, James & Jaymes, the bearded, hippy-like guys, Brent & Josh, and two of the YDCs were definitely seen, in no particular order, checking in at the end of leg two, which was in Genteng, Surabaya, at the Pabean Market. So that only leaves Amy & Daniel, Robert & Joel, the blonde girls, and the older couple for the second elimination.
Oh, and soymilk, the professors are as you identified, except the Robert identified by RFF is Adams, not Fishman.
The third leg is in progress now, and three of the four teams who were previously unaccounted for were spotted on a train to the next destination. Those teams were Robert & Joel, the blonde girls, and the older couple. Amy & Daniel were not.
This means that Amy & Daniel were likely eliminated unless leg two was an NEL, which I'm doubting. So the double amputee might be out already.

Wonder if that one team hailing from Sri Lanka will mean no India for TAR 21?
Happy that TAR 21 is Hantz-free.

Leg 1: Shanghai, China
Leg 2: Indonesia
Leg 3: Indonesia
Leg 4: Either Sri Lanka or Dhaka, Bangladesh
Leg 5: Russia
Leg 6: Istanbul, Turkey
If this is so, then Indonesia appeals to me despite having been visited only two seasons ago. Still a lot to mine from it. Sri Lanka also appeals to me since, while it's a repeat country, at least it's been a good fifteen seasons since we last visited. Bangladesh appeals to me, too, as I thought the TAR17 leg there was pretty good, but there's still more to see there, I think. Finally, Turkey appeals to me as I don't think we've been there since TAR7, when Rob famously screwed himself, Amber, Ron, and Kelly to unintentionally help Uchenna & Joyce and Meredith & Gretchen.

Also, the teams were last sighted in Amsterdam. The three teams seen there for sure were Nadine & Natalie, Brent & Josh (the gay goat farmers), and one of the young couples (who isn't Trey & Lexi).

Not too keen on most of the route - China's overdone beyond belief, I could do without the "every fourth season" visit to Russia, and we just did Indonesia and the Netherlands (kind of) two seasons ago, but with Spain, Turkey AND Bangladesh-or-Sri-Lanka on the route it's not going to be a completely crap season.
Most interestingly, there seems to be a leg in between Moscow and Amsterdam, and it looks like we'll either get our first two-leg visit to the Netherlands (which surprises me they've never done before, given Bert's from there), or we'll get our first trip to eastern Europe since TAR15.

As for the other team, the blonde girls were apparently easy cannon fodder and were among the early-to-mid eliminations.
It's looking like Paris, France, is the penultimate leg this season. Nadine & Natalie, Trey & Lexi, and James & Jaymes (the Chippendales) were definitely spotted there. That leaves it down to either a girl named Abby and her boyfriend or Brent & Josh, the gay farmers, for the last spot, as one of their teams was apparently eliminated in Spain.
Nadine & Natalie were spotted in at least second place, with the unseen team being in first. Hope the goddesses can become the eighth women's team to crack the F3 and then hopefully join Nat & Kat and Kisha & Jen in the "winning women's team" club.
In other news, it would appear that the bearded Hippies, the oldies, the tall guy/short guy team from Michigan, and the blonde girls were the ninth- through sixth-place boots, though the order of their eliminations is still unknown. All that is known is that they got through the first three legs, at least.

Race ended a few days ago. Final leg was in NYC.

No new countries this season.
There's still a gap that's unaccounted for. It's definitely possible there's a new country in there.
