^TARLA? :lol:
No, just strictly for the country of Mexico like how TAR Asia was a precursor for TAR Philippines.

What makes you say TARA was a precursor to TARP?

That the Leg is similar to TAR13's visit to La Paz. :tup:

Well, I liked that leg, so I approve of the homage.

I wonder if an "All-Stars" version of TAR could have winning teams from each of the different TARs competing for a "world" title?

Both produced by Active TV but other than that I don't think there is any relation.

Awesome.

It would be great if they also did a world "All Stars" for the amazing teams that didn't win (the whole world needs to see the under-dog goddesses that is Lumilia)

Lumilia <3

But first

-Americans won't care about them because they're not TARUS
-Nobody but Australians would care about them because they're TARAus
-They'd kinda be predictable first boots imo :(

I personally don't see a winner here.... :stare
but that may just be my personal opinion.

Unless they all somehow befall terrible unforeseen circumstances, if you put x amount of teams into a race you're going to come out with 1 winner, it's a formula we've seen work more than 22 times now...

Unless you're referring to the teams in terms of quality/entertainment, in which case I saw if they were casted once then there must be something about them that could produce great TV.

If you're saying my cast may be unbalanced I would probably agree but that would be a result of using such a formula/caveat to choose teams
I've looked over your cast again, and I hope that Mark & Bill win! I must have not seen them originally. Sorry

Had a look at your list, and have to say I think it's pretty good, but somehow I get the feeling Ethan & Jenna would have the victory in the bag before the race even started.  :groan:

Not sure if anyone's said this, but TAR need to produce a season of first boots.

As there's been 20 teams booted first (excluding All Stars, UB & Family Edition), the teams on my list are the most interesting, most likely to cause drama and simply those that would have had a huge possibility of making the Final 3 had they not fell to the first leg curse!

TAR 2 - Deidre & Hillary
TAR 7 - Ryan & Chuck
TAR 10 - Bilal & Sa'eed
TAR 13 - Anita & Arthur
TAR 14 - Preston & Jennifer
TAR 16 - Dana & Adrian
TAR 17 - Ron & Tony
TAR 20 - Misa & Maiya
TAR 21 - Rob & Sheila
TAR 22 - Matt & Daniel
TAR 23 - Hoskote & Naina

(I would also put Eric & Lisa from TAR 15 on there, but they probably wouldn't return!)  :(

If this were to happen though, I doubt any team prior to Season 14 would actually be picked, as us fans apparently "Don't Remember" pre TAR 14 teams!  :res:

Apparently in an interview they said they wanted nothing more to do with TAR after such a shock elimination.
If you remember they didn't even go to the finish line for the season finale. So unless they knew they were guaranteed a spot in the Final 3 I can't see them return. :gaah:

The other teams just don't leave any impression to me.

This would be my ideal "First Boot" cast:

THREEPEATERS:

TAR 11:
John Vito & Jill

TAR 18:
Amanda & Kris

TAR 24:
???

NOT-THREEPEATERS:

TAR 2: Deidre & Hillary
TAR 13: Anita & Arthur
TAR 14: Preston & Jennifer
TAR 15: Eric & Lisa
TAR 16: Dana & Adrian
TAR 19: Ethan & Jenna (I loved Jenna on Survivor, and this is still one of the saddest boots I have ever seen idek why)
TAR 20: Misa & Maiya
TAR 23: Hoskote & Naina

The past couple of seasons (mainly TAR 13 and onward) have been horrible for me because usually the teams I'm excited to watch for are booted first :lol:

Love the second route! The first route would be great if Liberia wasn't a double Leg. Basically a cheap Ghana, but with a cement and developing corporation, so that country would be good to "get creative".
