TAR27:

Leg 3 Horse or Carriage Detour
Leg 7 Ship or Skip Detour
Leg 9 Cans or Candy Detour
Leg 11 Roadblock in Macau

Some of the tasks this season are nice, but compared to other seasons, this one feels like average or below average. I would prioritize some of my previous switchback wishes over this.

Nothing from TAR27 deserves mention of any switchback. What an atrocious season.

It would be interesting to have a switchback-themed season with all (or at least most) of the tasks being repeated from past seasons.

I really don't like Switchbacks because everytime we've had one, it has failed catastrophically (best done was TAR27 and even that was stretching it).

I do like though, some fun nice little touches to earlier seasons locations (the TAR3 Switzerland Fountain on 28 <3 Mika on the water slide lol <3), but nothing overboard like repeating tasks.

You know what they say, repetition of things you already know is pointless and lazy.

That said, we need another #WatermelonGate-esque task to go viral. Really.

It'd be interesting to see a switchback in an all-star season wherein a returnee team who performed the task before was eliminated by it.

For example:
Tiffany & Krista and the Leg 11 Roadblock in Macau
Cameron & Darius and the Leg 3 "Adrianna" Roadblock :funny:
Zach & Rachel and the Leg 9 Salt Roadblock
Tim & TeJay and the Leg 8 Pole Detour in Malta (as a roadblock? :grins: )

I'd expect teams to do better if they encounter a switchback task they had troubles with before, unless they're a Mika-esque racer. :ascared

I would love to see the Malta pole as a roadblock if they go back. (Please do)

TAR28:
Colombia 2 Roadblock
Geneva Detour
Armenia Detour
Georgia Detour
Georgia Roadblock
UAE Racing with Camels Detour (as a Fast Forward)
China Roadblock (as a Final Task)
China Electric Unicycles Detour (as a Roadblock)

My main wishes are still:
TAR22's Sandcastle Roadblock
TAR17's Watermelon Roadblock

My list of desired "Switchbacks"- Okay, these are more along the lines of flashbacks like Mika's waterslide tantrum, but I would love to see how a newer group of teams would handle some situations from a few years to a decade or more ago.

I nominate:
Season 1: A return to the Sahara Desert (Paul & Amie were hopelessly lost in the middle ofnowheree with only a grain of luck to help them find the Pit Stop oasis and not a mirage)
Season 2: The fatigue-curing tea concoction (Dragged a caring Mary & a nauseous Peach down to tears and exhaustion in Hong Kong)
Season 5: Eating a giant bowl of caviar (The fish eggs sent Nicole into "restaurant clinic" and proved to be Charla's incredible feat)
Season 6: Consuming spicy Hungarian fishermen's soup (Degraded Jonathan to eating his own vile and made more than 10 million Americans turn their head away from the TV)
Season 11: "C U, wouldn't want to B U" mail (Mirna caught the infamous lead against the destined-to-win Rob & Amber at this Roadblock and took them down "singlehandedly" without a Yield or sabotage)
Season 12: Respect the donkey (Carried Ari & Staella's lead down to the first elimination of the season)
Season 15:
• Farmers' Game and Farmers' Dance (As both Detour options required brawn in the circumstance, Maria & Tiffany were left in shambles after going back-and-forth only to find out they failed miserably)
• FRANZ (Flight Time was put on hold and dropped in this telecommunication Roadblock that confused him out of the final three)
Season 17: "They Don't Call It 'The Amazing Race' for Nothin'" (Claire was almost sent to the ER in this catastrophic catapult malfunction)
Season 20: The Bollywood dancer disaster (Bopper spent an incredibly dedicated amount of time just to master a dance that even a sacrificial Fast Forward couldn't save them in the following leg)
<3 Family, friends, food, freedom... FULFILLED <3

A task similar to TAR11's letter-searching task should return for a future all-star season. :conf:

The "Lena & Kristy" Roadblock must come back for a third time.
