I was thinking that one of the two legs in Liberia could be partially in the rural areas surrounding the city.

Okay. First post, my ideas are (I do the routes when I get bored):

Each team has two courtesy of photos.

 Leg 1: Dallas-Belize 
 Leg 2: Belize-Costa Rica
 Leg 3: Costa Rica-Sao Paulo, Brazil
 Leg 4: Brazil-Madrid, Spain (DESPERATELY NEEDED)
 Leg 5: Spain-Zambia (hasn't been used since TAR1)
 Leg 6: Zambia-Dubai, UAE-Doha, Qatar
 Leg 7: Qatar-Athens, Greece-Heraklion, Greece (as with Spain) (Superleg)
 Leg 8: Greece-Riga, Latvia (How could they not have come here!)
 Leg 9: Latvia-Lisbon, Portugal-Porto, Portugal (not since TAR3)
 Leg 10: Portugal-Mumbai, India-Thimpu, Bhutan
 Leg 11: Bhutan-Melbourne, Australia-Auckland, NZ
 Leg 12: NZ-Fiji-Honolulu-San Fransisco

5 new countries


Leg 1: Atlanta-Trinidad and Tobago
Leg 2: Trinidad and Tobago-Ecuador
Leg 3: Ecuador-Cape Town, South Africa
Leg 4: South Africa-Antanananarivo, Madagascar
Leg 5: Madagascar-Toulouse, France (Plane themed leg because of Airbus factory)
Leg 6: France-Santiago, Chile
Leg 7: Chile-Melbourne, Australia
Leg 8: Australia-Singapore-Brunei (Superleg)
Leg 9: Brunei-South Korea (Jeju or Busan, NOT SEOUL)
Leg 10: South Korea-Kuwait (Dave and Mary's FF)
Leg 11: Kuwait-Hurghada/ Sharm El Sheikh,Egypt
Leg 12: Egypt-Washington DC, US.

2 new countries

Leg 1: Denver-Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
Leg 2: Galapagos Islands-Guayaquil, Ecuador (I really like Ecuador! :hrt: :hrt:)
Leg 3: Ecuador-Malaga, Spain via Barcelona, Spain (And Spain too! :hrt: :hrt:)

Leg 5: Bulgaria-Almaty, Kazakhstan
Leg 6: Kazakhstan-Osaka, Japan
Leg 7: Japan-Zanzibar
Leg 8: Zanzibar-Rosario, Argentina (pre assigned flights through Kenya and South Africa) (Soccer themed challenges, Messi was born there)
Leg 9: Argentina-Christchurch, NZ
Leg 10: NZ-Da Nang, Vietnam
Leg 11: Vietnam- Poland (AUSCHWITZ)
Leg 12: Poland- Denver via NYC

One new country.

Also a good special would be teams that have been eliminated 4th.

I have not included teams that participated in All Stars or unfinished business because they already got another chance.

Teams: Derek & Drew TAR 3
            John & Al TAR 4
            Linda & Karen TAR 5
            Hayden & Aaron TAR 6
            Meredith & Gretchen TAR 7

            Louie & Michael TAR 16
            Nick & Vicki TAR 17
            Andy & Tommy TAR 19
            Insert here who gets eliminated 4th from TAR 20!!

Good routes

YESYESYES ISRAEL

I don't know how much potential Antananarivo has for two legs, maybe you could either go to a different city in Madagascar in Leg 6 or have Legs 4 and 5 in Israel and have Leg 6 in Antananarivo.

Here's one that has a 0.1% of happening:

For TAR25, since it's the 25th season, everything is doubled. From the number of teams (11 teams to 22 teams), to the EPs (2 EPs for self and 2EPs to be given to another team, to 2 teams receiving the speedbump or getting NEL'd, to a final 6 instead of a final 3.

I doubt this so much due to budget, that's why I just placed it on the wishlist thread.

Does anyone else have a better idea for the 25th season of TAR?

How about just getting a memorable cast and more memorable tasks and locations and go back to more classic style TAR?

I wanna see a different kind of u-turn: the u-turn roulette (a wheel with some or all the remaining teams' pictures)
The 1st team to reach the u-turn roulette must spin the roulette. They can also u-turn themselves, since it's a roulette. Maybe voting at the start of the leg would do to.

I don't know if this would be nice or not on the real TAR, so I didn't post this on the "Changes Viewers Like to See" thread.

I don't know if this would be nice or not on the real TAR, so I didn't post this on the "Changes Viewers Like to See" thread.

They had the voting in Season 2 of the Australian version, and I wouldn't be a big fan of it.
Not really sure why? It would work in that it could slow down stronger teams E.g. Andy & Tommy or Dave & Rachel, but I just don't like the whole idea of the teams voting.  It relates it too much to Survivor or Big Brother, and that's the one thing that separates the race from other reality shows, so I'd prefer not to see a voting U-Turn.

As for the roulette wheel, again I think it's one of those ideas that looks good on paper, but wouldn't really work in reality.  I don't think many teams would use it knowing there's a risk of U-Turning themselves, and for teams at the back it would just be a game of luck for them, to hope it lands on the one or two teams that may be trailing them.  I think this concept would only work for the first or second team that arrives at it.

Honestly, I think the U-Turn is fine as it is and any change would only hinder the concept.  ???

I dislike the U-Turn roulette, I agree that it would not be used, and that there is already too much luck in the race as it is.

But I do like the idea of the voting U-Turn and how it can cause drama and it adds another element to the game which is great to see.

The voting kind of defeats the whole purpose of the U-turn and like people have been saying, makes it more like Survivor or Big Brother. But more importantly, the whole point of the U-turn is that it's a reward for the team that gets there first, just like everything is on TAR. If everyone votes ahead of time to get rid of the team that's in first, it kind of defeats the purpose.

It shouldn't be, but out of all the potential teams to be 3-peaters, I doubt they will return.... :'(

Though I never REALLY liked team YouTube, I think they were good if not great for their first season, but on an all-stars.... They literally have no chance to compete and stay in, unless it's an early boot second-chance type of season :(

My interpretation of WRP's route planning:

START: Lake Eola, Orlando, Florida
Leg 1: to Santiago, Chile to Mt. Aconagua, Argentina
 (I mean they've done this drive before so there's no problem)

Leg 2: to Mendoza to Iguazu Falls, Argentina
(Let's assume the rainforest related tasks are far better than the most recent example)

Leg 3: to Cologne, Germany to Luxembourg
(What a perfect way to give away some free Honda vehicles, yes?)

Leg 4: to Oslo, Norway
 (Nighttime leg, possibly of the "congratulations now skidoo" variety. Bonus points if there's a reference to Of Montreal)

Leg 5: to Stavanger, Norway
(I NEED a Pit Stop on Pulpit's Rock. Bonus points if there's a wedding task concerning Grieg)

Leg 6: to Paphos, Cyprus
(Brb smacking you in the face with history and bathing suits)

Leg 7: to Tashkent, Uzbekistan
 ( Kazakhstan doesn't want us, Kyrgyzstan only exists on Sporcle and the other countries in that area are either genetic, Really Dangerous [:( at no Tehran leg] or lacking in infrastructure for WRP)

Leg 8: to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
(I do recall good episodes happen here so why not?)

Leg 9: to Da Lat, Vietnam
(and I do recall most trips to Vietnam have a second reasonably good leg so why not have a leg in Paris-litr)

Leg 10: to Uluru, Australia
(Monuments are fun. If anything I envision a leg ending in the evening with stargazing and camping)

Leg 11: to Sydney, Australia
(I know its unoriginal to have the penultimate leg be of the 'party time' variety but I mean Sydney delivers)

 FINISH: Ka'a'awa Valley, Hawaii
(Finish line by a dinosaur footprint? Why not?)
