I like that route, it covers just about everywhere you would want it to. I would only suggest maybe Japan instead of India and the possibility of doing it backwards (westbound).

It doesn't exactly fit their model of in and out in one or two days. It's also quite expensive to transport that many people down there, if it is even possible. I guess we can dream though.

I'm not good with the whole leg by leg thing because I'm pretty sure I'd be adding countries that would be unsafe... But someone needs to go to Canada. I know they went there in the family edition, but besides that? Don't remember if they ever went there in a regular/All-Star edition. Anywhere would be fine.

They went to Calgary for Season 5 for a couple of tasks.

In TAR3, Leg 4, teams left the pit stop at Stonehaven and went to Aberdeen. They flew from Aberdeen to Porto, Portugal for detour and roadblock then a pit stop at the Torre de Belem. This was famous for the elimination of the Harvard lawyers, Heather and Eve, due to their inability to comprehend the clue to "walk" to the pit stop from the roadblock. I do believe that constitutes a full leg in Portugal. The next leg was the infamous "dieselgate" leg where they drove the length of the country into Spain to catch the ferry to Morrocco.

I would still like to see them go to Lisboa for a leg.

Leg 1: Philadelphia, U.S.A. to Madrid, Spain (12th elim)
Leg 2: Madrid to the Basque Region, Spain (11th elim)
Leg 3: Basque, Spain to Belgium (Brussels P.S.) (10th elim)
Leg 4: Brussels, Belgium to Yaounde, Cameroon (9th elim)
Leg 5: Yaounde, Cameroon to Sofia, Bulgaria (8th elim)
Leg 6: Sofia, Bulgaria to Istanbul to Ankara/Cappadocia, Turkey (7th elim/DL leg)
Leg 7: Ankara, Turkey to Bangalore, India (6th elim)
Leg 8: Bangalore, India to Melbourne, Australia (5th elim)
Leg 9: Melbourne, Australia to Chengdu, China (NEL-4th)
Leg 10: Chengdu, China (4th elim)
Leg 11: Chengdu, China to Vancouver, Canada (NEL-3rd)
Leg 12: Vancouver, Canada to Seattle, U.S.A. (Finale)

i put 12 teams, 13 legs (tehcnically), and 3 new countries, because I'm assuming that they'll make the "All Stars" Season bigger than the recent trend
and i've always wanted to see what a final 3 NEL would look like with the most recent penalty...

I have played up the theme of rigorous journey in this route I made. I also put up legs that are set in different terrains: snow, forest, high-altitude, bustling city, desert, and tropical.

Assuming 11 All-Star teams in a race of 12 legs.

NOTE: I have set the NELs at the early part of the race. Remember: these are All-Star teams (or former teams), and more screentime will redeem them from rotting.

Leg 1 (USA -> Russia)
Teams will have to fly to Vladivostok, Russia. I chose Vladivostok because it's like a secret haven inside Russia. And it's also good to see the Eastern side of the Russian country.
Elimination Leg

Leg 2 (Russia -> China)
Teams will have to ride the Trans-Siberian railway and then another train to a city in China. I would like to see a forested or nature-y place in China, not like the cities such as Shanghai and Beijing. I want to see like Guilin. China = Love.
Non-Elimination Leg

Leg 3 (China)
Teams will have to ride another train, and a bus to the roof of the world: Lhasa, Tibet. A pitstop in the gorgeous Potala Palace would be a major plus. If the race can't go to Nepal, Tibet is the alternate and the altitude problems will definitely be a problem for our All-Star teams.
HD filming will capture the amazing sceneries here in Tibet.
Elimination Leg

Leg 4 (China -> India)
Teams will have to fly to any part of India, but I'd love to see the Taj Mahal, so I'm taking the teams to Agra. Enough said, it's indeed Incredible India.
Elimination Leg

Leg 5 (India -> Gabon)
Teams now fly to the Gabonese capital city: Libreville. African cities == Chaos to the teams.
Non-Elimination Leg

Leg 6 (Gabon -> Sao Tome and Principe)
Teams must then ride a ferry to the island nation of Sao Tome and Principe. I enjoyed Seychelles in Season 16, so another island nation would be awesome! What also makes this nation magical is that it can be found lying by the equator!
Elimination Leg

Leg 7 (Sao Tome and Principe -> Europe)
Time for a big city action. I don't know specifically where at this moment, but I want to see a bustling city in the European continent.
Elimination Leg

Leg 8 (Europe)
The all-star teams will then have to drive hundreds of kilometers to another location. I am still awestrucked in the infamous Dieselgate episode, so another long drive will definitely test the best of the best. I'd love this leg to be the countryside-theme-inspired, a big contrast to the bustling city we had during the previous leg
Non-Elimination Leg

Leg 9 (Europe -> Africa)
The teams will have to make their way by any means to a city located at the edge of the Sahara Desert. I think seeing different locations set in different terrains will define how amazing a race route is. And when the sun shines bright, it may be hot enough to set angry minds and exhausted bodies.

NOTE: A desert location in South America too will rock. So it's between Africa or South America with this one.
Elimination Leg

Leg 10 (South America -> Guatemala)
Teams will then fly to the Central American part of the world. A leg in the ruins of Tikal in Guatemala would be awesome.
Elimination Leg

Leg 11 (Guatemala -> Mexico)
Teams will then take a torturing bus ride to Mexico. We have seen Mexico in past, but it's way too overdue! I know, Mexico is still under the travel ban of US, but Mexico is way to big. I would like to see dancing people with maracas as greeters.
Elimination Leg

Leg 12 (Mexico -> USA)
Teams will have to fly to USA. You can send them in any part of USA, I don't care. :lol:

Sorry to tell you that some things on your fantasty route for the race sounds too off.  First, they visited Guilin on TAR14 and Agra on TAR1.  Also there is no travel ban on Mexico from the USA, it only advises people to avoid cities like Cuidad Juarez and other northern Mexican cities. Cities like Mazatlan, Guadalajara, Cabos San Lucas, and Puerto Vallerta are safe to visit.  Also traveling by bus to Lhasa sounds too risky, taking a plane would be easier and I don't think there are any ferries from Gabon to Sao Tome.
