When the location they show on the outside or in aerial shots is NOT the same place as where the contestants are.

For instance, in Ep. 4 of TAR26, the contestants were praying at some minor temple in the middle of Thonburi, but the aerial shots showed Wat Saket (the Golden Mount).

I have so many TAR Pet Peeves that I want to bitch and moan.  :gaah: :gaah: :gaah: (:;) (:;) (:;)

Route: Lackluster route like TAR21 (First half was all basically third world countries scenic leg.) and TAR24 (First 8 leg was the 4 consecutive double leg in one country).

Task: Uninspired, unbalanced, ridiculous, boring, dull or easy task like TAR16 Chile 2, TAR16 France 1 WW1 Detour, TAR18 Austria Chimney RB, TAR20 Tanzania 1 minute Jumping, TAR21 Indonesia task, TAR21 & TAR24 Spain bull task, every Switchback task so far (except My Ox is Broken switchback IMO), and more...

Cast: I have problem with the cast especially on the M/M team and M/F team.
1) Rude, Douche, or Obnoxious: Reichen & Chip, Jonathan & Victoria, BJ & Tyler, Eric & Jeremy, Globetrotters, Cowboy Jet, Louie & Michael, Art & JJ, and more...
2) Boring: David & Jeff, Kris & Jon, TK & Rachel, Toni & Dallas, Gary & Matt, Jeremy & Sandy, ...
3) Please no/less gimmick or (semi) famous celebrity/mactor into TAR, we want more normal and real people in TAR. (Eg. Linda & Karen, Oswald & Danny, Tammy & Victor, Nat & Kat, JenKisha, Chuck & Wyona, Shelly & Nici, Amy & Maya, Hayley & Blair, CJ & Lebya, Jeff & Lyda, ...)

Editing: Editing was gone down south since TAR18 or TAR19 (Background music has been cheesy & fun and not dramatic, anticlimactic editing, Pit Stop editing, TBC editing, ...)

Twist: U-Turn (Placing RIGHT before the Pit Stop or placing in the leg that U-Turned team was 100% impossible to catch up), Speedbump (90%++ was too easy, while the other was ridiculously tricky that the Speedbump team was impossible to catch up).

I'm done. :lol:


Update


TAR always going to to the same countries or the same region and cities (UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands, Italy, Chile, Argentina, Moscow & Saint Petersburg in Russia, Java Islands in Indonesia, Istanbul in Turkey, Phuket & Bangkok in Thailand, Beijing & Shanghai in China, Tokyo & Osaka in Japan, Sydney & Auckland in Australia & NZ respectively).


TAR ignored these countries and regions that haven't visit or visited very long ago and never wanted to come back: Cyprus, Iceland, Ireland, Portugal (Until TAR 23), Luxembourg, Andorra, Finland, Greece, Baltic countries, Central Europe countries (Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia), Balkan / ex-Yugoslavian countries, Caucacus countries, Sardinia Island in Meditarrien Sea, Ecuador, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay, Ethiopia, Madagascar, South Africa, Nepal, Maldives, Laos, Philippines (Until TAR 25), Siberia / Russian Far East, Kyushu region & Hokkaido region in Japan, South Korea, Melbourne in Australia, NZ South Island (until TAR 22).

Tokyo & Osaka / Nagano & Hiroshima

Java Indonesia / What about Bali


1) Out of 11 visits to China, 10 seasons visits are involved big metropolitan cities in China (Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, HK). Where is other exotic and historical cities like Xi'an in TAR6, Lijang-Kunming in TAR18?


2) Same as China, all 7 visits to Japan are always involved big metropolitan cities (Tokyo and Osaka) with AT LEAST a task been done which I CANNOT tolerate at all unless they used as transit point to other Japanese suburb or historical cities without any task been done in Tokyo and Osaka. Where is Kyoto, Nagoya, Hokkaido Island, Kyushu Islands, and so on?


3) As for Indonesia, 3 out of 4 visits are in Java Island (Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Bandung), Bali is the only non Java Island visit which was the best Indonesia leg at that time until the double Bandung leg appears in next season. Oh come on, Indonesia was so big and diverse, and yet they keep on back to Java Island and do shitty and awful legs there. (Of course Bandung been excluded) Not to mention they still didn't have a freakin legit Jakarta leg there.

The Japanese game shows from 20 and 23 :gaah:
I enjoyed Wasabi Roulette, but I'd be happier if the task didn't have its own spin-off.

This. I already frustrated with the gimmick type Japanese game shows task since 20. Apparently the game host was come back in 26 as samurai on the sa'ke Detour (which I also criticized for the task being ridiculously easy). So I think he will appeared again in TAR29 Japan visit for some other wacky/cheesy task.(The every 3 season visit to Japan trend since TAR9 which is not my favourite as well as it tend to be overused soon. Where is South Korea and Taiwan?).

I do agree with the fact that the countries being visited are the same. Let's stop seing Japan I want South Korea and Taiwan and we need India it's been two long since the drama of India in Varanasi / Cochin doesn't count
