First, remember how much blame and hate TAR got when Michael & Kevin were eliminated in Russia? Imagine that times 10 because two well-renowned YouTubers on the race would murder the ratings and it would not be a good start for the following season

Shane Dawson & Lisa Schwartz then :P People would still know who Shane is and thus conversely would know his girlfriend, without the ratings becoming too absurd

Andie/Jenna were reunited parent/child team and we need more teams over 60 not once every 5 seasons  :( And Abba/James weren't what I mean :/

Ratings were still good after Joey/Meghan got eliminated though. I had never heard of Kevin before.
Can we have another Sue/Teresa with their magic spray?  :funny: Loved those guys so much.

Well, on Facebook, a lot of dislike was circulating around Joey being annoying along with hyperactiveness and turned many adults off watching him that season. I think thay may be why ratings weren't affected as much.

We need another psychadelic-style team like Anita & Arthur, but one who can actually has the ability to be quicker.

- Zookeepers? How about some veterinarians. No offense, but zookeepers tend to have no personality whatsoever. :( Personal references

- Female footballing (soccer) duo, wouldn't that be Kami & Karli?

- Gamers, weren't Mark & Bill gamers? ???

- Married over age of 60 - Meredith & Gretchen :<3

- Team Nerd - Gary & Dave from TAR2

- Goths - Kynt/Kent & Vyxsin

- Out of shape guys- Matt & Daniel recently, Mark & Bill also falls in this category

- Punk rockers - Nick & Vicki :snics:

We need some more of them though  :funny:

I was going to say vets but thought that people would complain that because of their wealth they don't deserve to be on the race like peiple are saying on the FB page  :(

We defintely need to see how another mother and adoptee would work together. Andie & Jenna are still one of my favorites from TAR17. :)

As for FB, it's one of the things I hate about Facebook pages. Those comments were absurd. Just because you are a vet, or any M.D. doesn't mean you should be banned from applying on The Amazing Race. They too can't travel to 8 countries in one sitting. They certainly have many patients to help and can rarely take time off even to spend family time at a beach, skiing, or any fun recreational activity. It is foolish to... not belittle, but put down everyday doctors who help SAVE LIVES. :groan: Sometimes I wish Facebook did not create a system for liking pages.

I don't think people really complain so much about people not deserving to run the race due to financial reasons - certainly not Nat and Kat or Tammy and Victor or Rob and Brennan or Chip and Kim, the latter of whom were fairly clearly well-off. Since TAR has an objective victory condition (finish the last leg first) then it doesn't matter why you've run the race or how someone else feels about it since there's not a lot that anyone can do about it.

I feel like vets would be nice. Perhaps farmers if they raise animals (this would be a good spot for a parent/child or other familial team) as well.

A route? Sure:

Leg 1: New York, New York to Fish River Canyon, Namibia (Pit Stop: Fish River Lodge)
Leg 2: Fish River Canyon to Swakopmund, Namibia (PS: Swakopmund Prison)
Leg 3: Namibia to Luanda, Angola (PS: Agostinho Neto Mausoleum)
Leg 4: Angola to County Kent, England (PS: Cliffs of Dover)
Leg 5: England to Cardiff, Wales (PS: Cardiff Castle)
Leg 6: Wales to Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (PS: Latin Bridge)
Leg 7: Bosnia and Herzegovina to Venice, Italy to San Marino (PS: Palazzo Publico)
Leg 8: San Marino to Kathmandu Valley, Nepal (PS: Kailashnath Mahadev Statue)
Leg 9: Kathmandu to Khumjung, Nepal (PS: Everest View Hotel)
Leg 10: Nepal to Kratie, Cambodia (PS: Phnom Sombok)
Leg 11: Cambodia to Singapore (PS: Esplanade Theatre)
Leg 12: Singapore to Houston, Texas (Finish Line: Miller Outdoor Theatre)

Hi all! Long time reader, first time poster.

I have an idea for a twist for racers, called the "Speedlimit"

A team gets to handicap another team at the roadblock, but on the condition that the team using it forfeits the right to check in to the mat 1st.

Example: Season 5's 9th Leg (India) - the team hit with the Speedlimit has to make 25 bricks instead of 20.

What do you think? Feel free to critique as you please, I'm always open to it!  :)

Welcome to RFF, Spitty! :bigwelcome

I think this would be a great idea! As much as the Speed Bumps are wearing out season by season, I think the original U.S. version should revamp this concept by using the "Speed Limit/Handicap" during an overnight rest which teams can vote on who would receive the twist in order to not rip-off of TAR Norway.

Welcome  :bigwelcome :)
This is a great idea, I like the concept a lot!  I agree with Rachel saying the speedbump is wearing out and it kind of reminds me of the Uturn used in TAR Israel.

I like this idea better! But if a team say used the Speedlimit and they arrived in 4th, would they have to relinquish one place or are they ok? Or maybe by using it they received a ten minute penalty at the pit stop?

Really like this idea  :cheer: :cheer:
