mali and mexico are dangrous and patskin

Both seem to be OK, ZBC, depending on where you would go.

Mexico seems to be quite safe around the Cancun and Teotihuacan areas, and Mali has calmed down ever since the government bet Azawad.

What could they call a third all-stars. We already have All Stars, Unfinished Business. How about 25th anniversary for season 25? (Pitiful) I am sure there are better ideas out there.

It's looking like future routes wont't be having new locations. But not to worry, this leg is made up of all previously visited countries and isn't bad if you ask me.

1. Los Angeles(United States) - Manila(Philippines) - Boracay(Philippines)
2. Boracay - Cebu(Philippines)
3. Cebu - Kuching(Malaysia)
4. Kuching - Colombo(Sri Lanka)
5. Colombo - Izmir(Turkey)
6. Izmir - Warsaw(Poland)
7. Warsaw - Gdansk(Poland)
8. Gdansk - Copenhagen(Denmark)
9. Copenhagen - Marrakech(Morocco)
10. Marrakech - Casablanca(Morocco)
11. Casablanca - Montreal(Canada)
12. Montreal - Chicago(USA)

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..

Move Bolivia to Leg 1 + Leg 2 and push Norway to Leg 3 and 4... that is an amazing route!

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

Thank you for your feedback. :cmas20

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.

That's basically what TAR Australia 2 did in their first leg at Misibis Bay, but with all 11 teams. Lucy & Emilia and Paul & Steve had a boat race at night to the Pit Stop and greatly affected Paul & Steve, Sue & Teresa, and Ross & Tarryn's first Pit Stop placement.  :cmas16

Imagine if this task was the difference between making the final 4 or not - certainly suspenseful!
