Trying to remember something from one of the early seasons of TAR. From what I recall, it was towards the end of the season (maybe 4 or 5 teams left), and I believe they were in Asia. At the end of a road block or detour (but not the pit stop), the route info card told them to go to a location in a city that was a few hundred miles away.

It was late in the day, and the teams quickly realized there was no public transportation that would go to that city until the next morning. A few teams checked into a hotel for the night, but 1 or 2 teams managed to separately hire a private driver, or a mini-bus, or ?? (some sort of non-public transportation) to drive them to the next location.

I remember reading an interview with Phil (or one of the producers) after the fact saying that they had to scramble and barely got to the location ahead of the teams, and had never guessed the teams would be resourceful enough to use non-public transportation.

This is not the incident in Season 1 where 2 of the teams were able to buy train tickets but Momily (and Guido?) got left behind and ended up hours ahead.

Thanks!
Maybe this was season 4 during the Sabah to Poring Hot Springs starting leg in Malaysia? ???

The only bit that sounds familiar to me is where production barely made it to the Pitstop before the teams.  I'm thinking this was S11?  ???  But as far as the rest goes I don't really remember anything like that.  :duno:

Lately I've been interested in Russian culture and such and was wondering, which is the best TAR episode in Russia? I like the season 13 ones but are there others I should take a closer look at?

Leg 6 of TAR17 is probably my favorite.

I enjoyed the tasks for both legs in 14 and 21- especially 21

The leg in season 5 was pretty good from what I can remember (haven’t watched it in ages)

Season 9’s leg had the Russian nesting dolls task, which was the main stand out for that leg

TAR5's leg in Russia is my personal favourite

I'm 100% sure I've posted this before but I want to do it again: an All Stars 2 cast - what could've been.

- Amani & Marcus (S19)
- Andy & Tommy (S19)
- Brendon & Rachel (S20)
- Mark & Bopper (S20)
- Jaymes & James (S21)
- Natalie & Nadiya (S21)
- Max & Katie (S22)
- Caroline & Jennifer (S22)
- Dave & Connor (S22)
- Tim & Marie (S23)
- Leo & Jamal (S23)

I've eliminated: Joey & Meghan, Margie & Luke, John & Jessica, Flight Time & Big Easy, Jet & Cord. 5 teams..

Also I just wanted to say I despise Dave & Connor but I believe they did deserve to come back.

Yeah, however horrible Dave & Connor were, even in hindsight I would still put them on the cast for All-Stars.

But after the way S24 turned out, I hope we never get another All-Stars lol. Just newbie seasons with good casts would be amazing to me.

But I still think we have a good All-Stars season, with teams from S25-30...

Yes, I agree that there are enough teams to potentially bring back for All-Stars, but there were also amazing possibilities for S24. And some teams declined, some had commitments, so we ended up with a trash season.

Of course it wasn't just casting, and most of the legs were very weak (with even the cast members saying their original seasons were harder). So I guess it's the overall production value that has turned me off with regard to future All-Stars seasons.

Stop calling them that. I'm serious. I had a family member who just recently went through cancer, and I spent day after day wondering if he was going to survive. It's extremely insensitive and thoughtless. No-one, not even your worst enemies, should be identified as "cancer".

Dave & Connor absolutely deserved a spot on All-Stars. Who didn't think it was pretty awesome that they still were able to Race even with the busted ankle.

It wasn't until TAR24 *shudder* that they showed just how horrible they could really be.  :snicker:

That would've been a great All-Stars cast. Though I'm a Pam & Winnie fan so I'd put them in over Caroline & Jennifer. Though I didn't have a problem with them in TAR22, so maybe it's just because of my opinion of them after TAR24 lol

Why is this more suspenseful than the last 2, 3, 4, 5 or so seasons?

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/_TTdy2nVCj0" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/_TTdy2nVCj0</a>

And this was a race for 2nd. In 2016, they would cut all of this out (ok, maybe not because of Rachel :lol: )

Bringing back this gem because the current season is one of the most poorly edited seasons to date :/

TAR 30 is the first season since TAR 25 has two consecutive legs without Roadblock (Leg 2-3 for TAR 25, leg 7-8 for TAR 30), for two different purposes (TAR 25 for Bethany's one-arm, TAR 30 for swapping partners), both season have the premiere with plenty of tasks
