TAR 15 Insider Videos
« on: September 28, 2009, 12:06:11 AM »
Yes, it's the return of the TAR 15 insider videos. Nice to have them back and thanks to CBS' channel on YouTube, I'll be posting them here as soon as they become available which usually means right after the episode has aired on the West Coast.

That is the case here so as usual, I'll post the vids as follows:

Scenes from the episode just aired.
Elimination Station
Deleted scenes
Mat chats
Post-race confessionals

I will say the producers are very good in providing the videos. Coming up. Our videos from the season premiere.

Let's start with scenes from the just aired episode.

Here's the first ever starting line elimination. Yoga instructors Eric & Lisa are out.



Here, we flash forward to Ron and Cheyne getting the first wasabi bombs in Tokyo.



To the mat in Tokyo and Meghan & Cheyne are the first to arrive. They get a nice trip to Aspen and Vail through Travelocity.



Poker players Maria & Tiffany get a reprieve as they hit the mat without two people in their tourist group.




Here, the teams head to Vietnam and find that the monsoons are in Saigon to greet them.



In Cai Be, the teams have fun in the mud task.



On the mat in Cai Be, Gary & Matt get to the first ahead of brothers Sam & Dave.



Say goodbye to Garett & Jessica.

Garrett & Jessica get to christen Elimination Station. Why this is shot in HD and the regular series is not is beyond me.


Congrats to Garrett & Jessica on their impending nuptials!

To the deleted scenes.

At LAX, Lance & Keri gloat about just barely missing elimination.



While waiting for the shuttle at LAX, poker players Maria & Tiffany meet Zev & Justin.



I don't recall this scene, but Lance tries to park at LAX and finds it to be a tight squeeze.



Marcy meets Flight Time, but mangles his name inside the shuttle.



In this deleted scene, we discover that Keri forgot her sneakers and has to beg for some at LAX.



Let's get out of the airport and head to Japan. That's next.

Lance & Keri show off their amazing knowledge of Japan which is basically nil.



In their cab ride in Tokyo, Meghan and Cheyne relish the opportunity to be in Japan.



In this clip, Marcy explains her injuries and hopes they won't slow her down in the race.



Cheyne tells us a scary injury he incurred right before the race.



While they're booking flights for Vietnam, Marcy & Ron and Garrett & Jessica do a little bonding.

In Vietnam, Lance & Keri find the stormy weather just par for the course as they came from stormy Boston.



At Narita Airport, Maria shoots down Tiffany's offer to help.



Ah, conflict! Ericka feels Brian is focused on other teams at the expense of their own progress. I'm feeling Miss USA is going to be yelling at Brian quite a bit during their experience. I can't wait to see it.



At Narita, Marcy tries to keep the mood light with Ron.



Globetrotters Flight Time & Big Easy feel there's some deception from the other teams, but they're running their own race.



Zev & Justin look for Vietnamese dong.

Mat chats now. First in Tokyo.

Here's Meghan & Cheyne saying how happy they are to be in first in the first leg.



Mika & Canaan say they'll win the race. We'll see about that.



Maria & Tiffany are happy to survive to race another day.

Mat chats in Cai Be now.

Gary & Matt, Sam & Dave, Flight Time & Big Easy and Lance & Keri are happy to be safe to race another day.



Zev & Justin couldn't be happier to be in 5th and how they've run the race thus far.



Tiffany & Maria are amazed that they've finished in 7th after starting the leg last and two hours behind everyone else.



Canaan admits a first in his relationship with Mika.



Marcy & Ron talk about how difficult it is to compete with the younger racers.



We didn't see this in the episode, but Ericka was crying at the mat. She was upset about the ducks and Brian says an angel led him to the mat in Cai Be.



And we say goodbye to Garrett & Jessica.

Some post-leg confessionals.

Gary & Matt take the time to appreciate what they have at home.



Gary & Matt and Meghan & Cheyne recall Cheyne stealing Team Montana's cab at the airport.



Brian & Ericka say they really haven't bonded with Marcy & Ron.



Canaan apologizes to Mika for yelling at her at the Duck Roadblock.



We'll hear from the two eliminated teams next.

Our two last videos of the night.

We go back to the very first elimination way back when. Eric & Lisa, the yoga instructors, are shocked to be the very first team out of the race and didn't even get to leave the country.



And Garrett & Jessica say goodbye from Vietnam. At least they got to see two countries.



And that's it for tonight. Goodness, this took longer than I expected. Good night.

I think it sucks that they didn't even get to go to the elimination station.  That really is a poor choice by production.

I believe Production would have liked them to go to ES, but they made a choice to part ways with the show at that point. They went on to India and had 3 weeks with their Yoga Master instead and were quite happy with that experience.

At least their TAR-related memories of India had no traffic chaos + animals + culture shock. :funny:

The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

TAR, unlike Survuvor, and other "location" shows, uses a lot of local crews for filming, in addition to the crews that travel with the teams and with Phil. Not all of those crews have access to HD cameras yet; or HD cameras still aren't rugged enough for the wear, tear, and abuse that the equipment has to absorb.

You could read about it in their interviews mswood

We didn't go to Elimination Station [where eliminated teams are sequestered for the duration of production]. We took off and went to India.

TVGuide.com: You left voluntarily?
Eric: Afterward, we said, "Listen, you guys threw this at us and honestly, I don't know what else you have in store, but no, thank you. We're 20 minutes from our house and we had plans this summer, which was to go to spend time with our teacher in India." So we went there. We're not into spending three weeks somewhere and not knowing what it would be like. We had no trust that it was something that would be good for us and good for our reputation, so we took off and we wound up having the most wonderful time that we could possibly have.

Yes it is true. I was furious at the thought that they might not have been offered ES, but that is not the case. Their post race interviews (see their thread) are confirming that they made a decision to leave the show at that point. We will not be seeing them at the finale either.

oops, puddin beat me to it.

Well I can certainly understand their view.  But I am also a little relieved that the producers did plan on them going to ES.

Because doble ouch, if they hadn't.

Ross Matthew's is interviewing the eliminated racers after each episode on his online show Inside Dish.   He did the same with the Big Brother Houseguest all summer.   

CBS has the interview with Lisa and Eric posted: http://www.cbs.com/primetime/amazing_race/video/?pid=z2PCEtwNJ7EfKFQGGhDHeZpfVvcQ_ahk
