I'm from Brazil and, if you guys want, I can put some sense into it.
To tell the truth, I watch every single episode of TAR, but I couldn't watch every episode of ACM (TAR: A Corrida Milionária) but the one I watched, I kind of liked it.
The edition is still raw, looks like the firsts seasons, where they didn't really know how to edit the footage in a coerent manner. For example, I watched the one where they went to Minas Gerais and had to buy flowers to put on a local memorial gravesite and them do the roadblock (where a member of the team had to enter a mine and find a nugget of gold on the mud wall (and, if necessary, use a metal 'plate' to decant the material). This first segment was really confusion and it was not that thrilling (the edition kept focusing on the wrong misspronounce of the contestants about the next location... kind of dull). Not to say the Roadblock looked kind of set up, arranged.
For the second part, the Detour, teams had to chose between knot or run (I don't really remember the words).
Knot - They had to make 6 correct marine knots to earn the clue to the pit stop.
Run - They had to cross a paintball field without being hit to achieve a flag and the clue.
I think that's when the edition shined, You could tell who was who, who were first, who were falling behind, being frustrated and so on. In the end, the edition (like on TAR) made believe a flat tired would take the lead of Jonatas and Rafael, but they managed to get on the mat first.
I want to watch it more frequently, but the time slot is somewhat hard for me.
Where are you watching it, apskip (or any of you guys?)
(As I have said, sorry if it's hard to understand, english is not my first language)
