Speaking of TAR8, I decided to pop in the Panama and Costa Rica Legs and boy were they fun.  Reminds me of how great TAR8's cast is, especially compared to most of the post-TAR12 seasons.

I love the TAR 8 cast and I don't found TAR 8 was the worst pre-AS season despite the route and the task was sucks. Compare to the very next season TAR 9 which was my worst pre-AS season despite the great route and acceptable task because I passionately dislike TAR 9 cast, boot order and the predictability so much.

TAR8 is actually in my Top 5 seasons TBH.

Ignore the fact that it was almost entirely in the USA, it was a fun season with great teams, some good tasks, and it delivered!

TAR8 being all in the United States is not actually a bad thing, because normal seasons of TAR hardly ever look at the culture of America anyway.

The important thing is that they only did it Once. Otherwise, I think it would be worthy of complaint.

Despite the 8 leg wins, Rachel & Dave were far from perfect as a team

I can't believe I haven't seen this deleted scene until now. They definitely would have shown things like this if they didn't win.

Dave & Rachel are one of my most hated teams, but it really annoys me when they edit the winners to make them seem nicer then they actually are.  I know it's so viewers won't be as angry, but it really takes away from the "Reality" and "Realness" of the show, when they're perceiving teams totally different from what they actually are!  :groan:

MOF, I think TAR20 had one of the least interesting, drama-filled cast ever with lots of deleted "extras". I still remember Kerri & Stacy's zero-personality edit, but were a riotous duo in the bonus clips.

TAR's best routes in my opinion are:

Season 3  (Scotland, Portugal, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Vietnam)
Season 5  (Argentina, Egypt, Tanzania, UAE, New Zealand)
Season 6  (Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Senegal, Hungary, Corsica, Sri Lanka and Xian)
Season 12 (The Netherlands, Lithuania and Croatia)
Season 22 (Bora Bora, New Zealand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Botswana, Switzerland, Germany and the UK)

Honourable mentions for:

Seasons 15 and 18
