Heee....

I would think we would hear about a new season before long. I think at least at one point this was the #1 show, so I do believe we will see another...

I'm quite sure there will be another TARA, IMO the tasks are a lot harder than the more recent  TAR seasons, the only think that I would criticize is that there are a lot of mactors and celebrities, although it really doesn't matter since they race just to race instead than just the money, and most have coped well with the stress, but I just hated the miss universes (the one that made the comment of being treated lower than humans). But still, I like the fact that they don0t forget about the third place team in the final leg :cmaslol

Jobby:
TARA 3 is really the toughest race ever IMO.

I mean, a normal race consist of just a Detour, Roadblock and probably one or two Route Infos which requires only teams to get from one place to another.

But for TARA3, remember their Route Info involved washing a whole bus? Fixing a jeepy car? Buying items for the poor and many many other hard tasks? There were so many tasks for one episode that they had to make one episode 90 minutes long too!

And how many race do we actually see SO MANY TEAMS QUITTING THE ROADBLOCK or the race? Haha.

Ray!:
I can't wait for TARA4 to start! However, let's hope that we won't have something like an "India Fortnight" like last year (TAR 13 in New Delhi/Delhi --> TARA3 in Cochin --> TAR 13 in Delhi/New Delhi --> TARA3 in Mumbai/Pune).

Although India legs have been overdone recently, if you examine Amazing Races 1 to 12 you should conclude that the India legs were among the best of any seasons where they happened. India was visited in these Amazing Races

AR1, Ep. 8
AR4, Ep. 6 and 7
AR5, Ep. 9
AR7, Ep. 8 and 9
AR10, Ep. 5
AR13, Ep. 6 and 7

I too want to see more varied parts of Asia than has been shown on AMazing Races, but India has hosted some of the most memorable scenes in Amazing Race history. Those include the bull-surfing, the suspense of the end of AR4 ep.7 when Chip/Reichen were battling Tian/Jaree, the failure of Brandon/Nicole to get their heads shaved for a Fast Forward, the "We've got a broken elephant" line from Gretchen, Joyce choosing to get her head shaved in a Fast Forward, and the Holi celebration. The fact that India is proven fertile ground for first-class episodes has to be why World Race Productions keeps going back.
