Washabi task in S15, please!

 :hoot: Post this on the Future Switchbacks too.  :)

Any of the Japanese tasks! Loved them all they were so wacky and creative!
Was that the same leg they had to bring a group of people through Shibuya Square without losing anyone too lol
Yeah! I loved that task. I love any task that has the teams engaging with the locals, especially large groups. The local tourists look like they had fun too. Hehe.

For Season 24 which I predict and am reasonably confident is the next all stars/unfinished business I think that it needs to.

  • Be a long route.
  • Last 13 legs
  • Cross at least 6 continents
  • Visit at least one new country and visit some rarely visisted contries
  • Not have more than 3 teams from a single season  :funny:

And please, more normal people! No more semi-famous people, no models, no singers, no more pair of famous athletes... The best races are with normal people. Dating couples, married, friends... normal, NORMAL! xDD

And please, more grandmother and grandfather teams! :D I will really love to see a pair of grandmothers team in a future race...

THIS 1,000,000x... You do not know how much I want this to be featured! :hrt: :hrt: :hrt:

I've had enough of the pro athletes (Chester & Ephraim, Elliott Weber, Marcus Pollard), YouTubers (Michael & Kevin, Joey & Meghan), and generic blond female teams (Caroline & Jennifer, Liz & Marie, Caitlin & Brittany; THE BEAUTY QUEENS HAVE ALREADY CLEARED THIS SPOT, NO MORE "WANNABE THEMS" :gaah:)

I want to see a stronger Gutsy Grannies team, mixed race (Caucasian and African-American) to be preferred.  :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

I love night Legs.  Seeing the teams run around in the dark is awesome.  The Kafka Road Block was a great use of the nighttime setting.  And in TARAu, they had a good Leg where they had a Road Block in some underground tunnels at night (Turkey I think?).

But how about a night Leg where it's actually light out? What are some possible "Land of the Midnight Sun" destinations could they Race to?

Don't like the bandwagon rumour of Amanda/McCrae team for the next Season, which puzzles me as we all think it may be All-Stars.
Maybe just some journalistic thrash.

Normal people make the best TAR teams, (Kelly & Jon, Charla & Mirna, Flo & Zach, just to name a few)
But not all semi-famous people make boring TAR teams, Vanessa & Celina, for example.
Also I didn't find Caroline & Jennifer that generic typical blondes, they were quite entertaining!
"BEVERLY HILLS HAS JUST LEFT THE BUILDING!" And that flying squirrel thing was lol :lol:
But I mostly agree with you guys - more 'normal people' TAR teams please! :hrt:
TAR Canada: Vanessa & Celina
TAR 23: Tim & Marie, Nicky & Kim, Tim & Danny

She's really pissed that we're asking her because she has BUSINESS to do.

I think Elissa is much more likely to get cast than Amanda/McCrae.  I predict TAR24 is not the All-Star season and we'll see Elissa racing with her husband then for TAR25, the All-Star season, we'll get Rachel and Elissa as a hybrid team.  :<3

I have to say. No Hybrid teams ever again. I don't care who it is, I don't want anymore Hybrid teams ever again especially if it involved Rachel.

Seeing as we have a potential All Stars season soon, does anyone know would it even be remotely possible for the public to vote for the 11 or 12 potential All Star teams. Could they say, break them off into categories (MM, M/F, FF, Older couples, Uturned, teams that need redemption) or would they just pick a top 11? I doubt this would happen but it is just an idea, or maybe even pick 10 teams internally and let the public choose 2 from another 5 teams.
