I wish that they could stop making the 2/3/4 legs cycles in South America at the beginning of the race. The race visited that continent 9 times (seasons 2, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 16, 18 & 20) and only once was it featured at the end (TAR18 - TAR19 could count since Panama is pretty near from SA), and it was for only one leg. Those are two (Rio & Panama that is) of my favourite legs in that continent because it actually felt different then the others: there were only 4 teams left.
Making those South American cycles always at the beginning of the race always feel repetitive (mainly in the last 2/3 cycles) because there's always a whole bunch of teams to follow. Never did we get six or five teams left racing in that continent, and those legs never got that intensity when teams are closer to the finish line. (Not saying that they are all boring, the Paraguay leg was probably the best one of TAR20)
Just my 2˘ :cmas27

Its probably because when they decide to go to SA it would be cheaper to film there and thus moving larger amount of teams over there (say over Asia would be cheaper).

TAR needs to amp up their editing skills..

1. Give every team, yes I mean every team, an even edit. One of the more recent seasons that was able to pull this off was probably TAR 17, I swear, every team was memorable.. even Ron & Tony :cmaslol

2. Stop rushing everything.. I hate those episodes where it's simply like 1,2,3 where they just show teams departing, buying tickets, and off to their next destination, all in just 1 minute..

3. Ew, I hate that nighttime transition, where clouds pass by the moon – overused.

Well that's all I have to say for editing skills..

I'm thinking of putting Bolivia for the penultimate leg (especially in Uyuni), because I'm imagining when they're starting the final leg in the salt flat, it'll be unique when they're told to go to the Salt Lake City. :cmaslol

I have an idea.

Each time a team wins a leg additional money (say 100,000) is added to that teams grand prize should they win the race.

Examples

Josh and Brent only won the final leg so they only win the million
While Dave and Rachel (won 8 legs and the finale so they would win 1 million plus 800,000 bonus (for winning 8 legs)

Well that's all I have to say for editing skills..
Especially during the cloudy to rainy transition for TAR12, Burkina Faso (leg 3). Even though it has not happened twice before, the camels running and villagers avoiding the wind was just.... :cmas13 too much. :cmas30: To top it all off, Shana & Jennifer then complains... again... in the rain. A good cloud to rain transition is cool, but the mammal scurrying was too much to bear.

Anyone remember the coracle task in Leg 1? I think that task had potential but teams were too far apart it was kind of a useless thing (didn't change much of the order except the top teams).. even though it helped for some "funny" bits like Michael & Kevin and others..

So, I would love to see it return..

Except..

1. Taking place at nighttime
2. Putting the task when there's around 5 teams left.. it could call for suspense :cmas9 coracle-race? :cmaslol
3. Make this the transportation in getting to the Pit Stop.
