I think the cars are better than 1 million rupees. :lol3:

Bransens got TWO cars (one for winning leg 10, and another for winning the 2nd and 3rd place after race challenge with the Weavers) and $240,000 worth of oil (but they need to stick with BP forever lol). Not only that, they also got a second place cash prize of 100,000 dollars. That's nearly more than $400,000 already I think. :lol3:

Oh and also a Universal Orlando Resort package at Orlando, Florida provided by Travelocity. :oh

I think even with winning 8 legs, Dave and Rachel's prizes aren't anywhere near. :iok

Other random prizes in recent seasons I remembered are Steve and Allie's $7,000 by 7UP

Two 55" HD TVs won by Louie and Michael (like, totally lame?)

A kayak for each person won by Gary and Matt

A red cedar sauna and a pair of 52 inch HD LCD TVs won by Meghan and Cheyne

Not to forget that, Tammy and Victor won kayaks too.

It's like... compared to cars... these prizes are miserable and pales in comparison. And I'm glad they stopped giving them out. :lol3: I know that a good Kayak can only cost up to from $500 to $1000 and really... even if they are plated with gold wordings.. it shouldn't be more than $2k worth, which is sad.

The Bransons won a lifetime supply of gasoline for the four team members, not oil. And it was valued in gallons not a cash value at the time.
They definitely came out ahead on that, because the median price of gasoline in the U.S. has gone up considerably since their season (i.e., I don't think anyone in the U.S. was paying $3.00/gal. at the time, and now, you cannot find any gas anywhere in the U.S. as low as $3.00/gal. at anytime during the year. (I know that where I'm at the lowest it has been since the beginning of 2012 has been $3.09/gal. last spring, and the lowest this spring has been $3.27/gal. (a few weeks ago); then it went up to $3.79/gal. in less than 48 hours.)
But as I said, the Bransons cleaned up on the gasoline prize.

They probably spent a load of money trying to store all that gasoline.  :lol3:

I'm pretty sure BP gave them credit cards to use (which they used during season 8 since for that season only production had teams used the production provided credit cards for both gasoline and airline travel.)

Not really! They have had some holiday packages which are similar to TAR. And $5000 gift cards... FREE FUEL (but for a year LOL)...

Season 4 had really decent prizes though.

Quote
Leg 1 A Sony PlayStation 3 and BRAVIA for each team member.
Leg 2 A Sony VAIO for each team member.
Leg 3 A vacation package worth US$3,000 to Colombo, Sri Lanka
Leg 4 US$2,000 each
Leg 5 Trip for two to the Philippines and US$3,000, and a helicopter ride to Legazpi Airport to be given after all teams had departed in the next leg.
Leg 6 A vacation package and a dinner for two at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, worth US$5,100
Leg 7 had a virtual pit stop with no prize given for the first team. A special prize of an upgrade at any Hilton hotel was awarded to Ethan & Khairie for being the fastest team to complete the Hilton bed-making challenge.
Leg 8 A 4-day ski vacation at Niseko, Japan worth US$6,000 for the first place team.
Leg 9 A year's supply of Caltex with Techron worth US$5,000
Leg 10 A trip to Hilton in the Maldives worth US$6,000

No Dobby, I meant like some of them.

TARA 4's Hilton upgrade was weird. Like those prizes.  :lol3: :lol3: :lol3:

Even better, on the next season, when Ron & Christina won the same prize they said they knew what it was, responding to Charla & Mirna's reaction :lol:
TAR Canada: Vanessa & Celina
TAR 23: Tim & Marie, Nicky & Kim, Tim & Danny

She's really pissed that we're asking her because she has BUSINESS to do.

Cha Cha and Charla & Mirna made TAR11 at KLIA so fun to watch! That was really a great tactic that I would employ <3

Dustin and Kandice started leg 8 while Eric and Daniel and Guidos hadn't even finished leg 7.
looks like we never had anything like that except for season 21's Turkey-Russia flight. i love airport Dramas, but recent seasons do not show that much.

Couldn't be more agree. I hope season 23 will give us airport dramas like back then in Tanzania. So depressing yet surprising knowing at the end one of the victim won the season.

ChaChaCha & Charla/Mirna are to of the BEST teams ever to play IMO

Also I found out the longest anyone has ran a race without winning a leg is Kent & Vyxsin with 18 legs without a win  :funny:
These are my top 3 teams EVERRRRRR
GamerFan's TAR 7 Continents (Jackie 6, Laina 7, Leg 11: 3rd)
SamualDude's TAR:NZ (Dawn 3, Jennifer 1, Leg 4: 2nd )
Kandace's The Mole: German Deceit: Max Black (Top 5)
Racer's Survivor Armenia: Daria (Sevan) (Top 10)

Just out of curiosity, has TAR ever had a season with teams consisting of a returning racer and a different partner?  For the life of me, I can't remember.

Like, there have only been 2 seasons with returning players... :lol:
In TAR11 Eric & Danielle were cast, remember? They both had different partners in their original season.

The thing is most of the racers say: "I would only race again with my previous partner". IDK, I really like seeing teams go back, not only half of it... just my opinion.
Didn't they ask Flo back, but only with Drew and not Zach? She turned them down because she only wanted to Race with Zach.  I guess that's why they went with another hybrid dating team with Eric & Danielle who apparently weren't even really dating.

So... What was the relationship of Flo & Drew?  :cmaslol It sounds just as random as Mark & Mallory

Could somebody explain, what happened with Hanoi in TAR22? I mean, why are you referring to it as controversal?
