Track "Amazing Race" TV Show in Google Earth

Some enthusiasts for TV shows and movies enjoy identifying the locations where scenes in the shows are made. Some shows are almost made for being followed on maps. Among these, the "Amazing Race" from CBS is a particularly good example. The show focuses on teams given physical and mental challenges as they travel around the world. Several fans of the show have been documenting the locations filmed in each episode and placemarking them in Google Earth.

The most recent season is Amazing Race 9, and you can already find the locations for the first three episodes in this thread at the Google Earth Community. Included in the posts are screenshots from the show. Here are the collection of placemarks from Episode 1 , Episode 2 , and Episode 3 . Threads for previous seasons (with placemarks) can be found here: Amazing Race 8, Amazing Race 7, Amazing Race 6

GEB has reported about movie locations shown in Google Earth, for example a guide to locations where "Lord of the Rings" was filmed in New Zealand, or other movie locations. The best TV mapping application I've seen to date is called the "Jack Tracker" (Google Maps mashup) for following all the details in the popular TV show "24" (via GoogleMapsMania)
