If you sort the contestants list on Wikipedia by age, Jody's the oldest person ever to Race. I wish they did, too :(

Just a sweet grandmother and her granddaughter. That kind of team we don't get anymore.

idk if this is an unpopular opinion but i loved jody and shannon from TAR 16 even though they lasted 2 legs  :lol:

I really wanted them to return but jody would have been too old

I also liked Jody & Shannon!

It's the grandparent team (one member, Jody), that we don't get to see anymore! :(  :funny:

Here's one:

I could never get into TAR 17. The first episode/leg felt super amateur to me and that tainted the rest of it.

speaking of TAR 17 i really liked andi and jenna the recently reunited mother/daughter, i mean they were great to watch with amazing backstory but got really bad luck with their taxi to the pit stop resulting in their elim if they survived it it will change tar 17 alot and Nat and KAT would not have won.

and speaking of nat and kat, even though they were the first f/f winners they were so boring and cost brook and clair the win

I actually kind of agree with Jro's sentiment on the first leg overall being kind of 'bleh' for 17.

For me, the draw for that season was more character- or I guess competitor- driven than story/challenge driven.

Andie and Jenna were an early favorite for me because of their unique dynamic, but the dynamic between Brooke and Claire around the watermelon scene was what drove it home for me.  The task itself was pretty run of the mill, and the accident- though cool- was fleeting, but the way Brooke was empathetic yet resolute in the fact that Claire needed to AND COULD continue on through the task was character building gold.

I instantly knew that I was rooting for them as far as they'd go, and I would tune in each week to see how they'd do.

But the route and tasks of that season (outside of first visits to Ghana and Bangladesh, and a welcomed return to Oman) was meh.

TAR17's Sweden and Russian Legs were good.

Russian legs are highly praised by so many users here, especially leg 7 involving the Russian mysteries

The premiere did a better job showing off England than 7.

Kiruna is still the only good full Swedish leg to date (and Narvik's underrated).

We finally got to see the daytime beauty of Saint Petersburg.

The HK episode might be the hardest NEL ever.

South Korea needed a revisit even more than Oman, and Los Angeles need to host a finale instead of a Starting Line.

More like great, as was the rest of the season outside possibly the last two episodes.

Fixed. Nat knocks people out for a living, not knock back books.

Doctor Strand's quotes refute the misconception that she and Doctor Chang are boring in any case.
