What other teams were invited for all of the "returning" seasons but declined, cut, alternate, etc? Survivor Wikia has a whole page on that, I am curious about TAR.
And they really should bring teams from old seasons or make a returning cast season after.. 10 seasons instead of 6

Hmmm...let's end this discussion. Who was asked or not remains private unless the teams involved have shared the info themselves.

Thanks!

This question has been circling my mind for a while now.

Does production require teams to color coordinate their race outfits or is it the teams' choice to do so? Since TAR20, I've noticed all teams have been dressing in the same t-shirts/activewear or the same hues during the race. It seems teams can't wear anything way mismatched like, for example, Ronald's personal "Who's Your Daddy?" clothes while Christina wears her handpicked outfits back in TAR12.

After watching TAR Canada's recent episode, on the last task before the Pit Stop (canoe to the Pit Stop), can a team use their Express Pass on it? If yes, who should they handed it to?

I think they can't use the express pass on those mandatory tasks. Like...you HAVE to canoe to the pit stop , there's no other way to go.

They are encouraged to do so for the first two or three legs. After that, they can do whatever they want.

Except on TAR Vietnam, where they are colour-coded for the entire thing.

Although this isn't specific to any particular Seasons, it is a question, and it's related to TAR, so I'll ask anyway.  :lol:

I'd like to say I'm a pretty big TAR fan, and have seen all the US, Canadian and Australian Seasons so far, but I want to start getting into other (International) seasons.  Has anyone any advise as too where to start, or which Seasons are really great that I'm missing out on?

Thanks in Advance Guys!  :kuss:

If you want to see TARLA, I strongly suggest you to see the first season. It still remains as the best of the five aired.

Thanks Alen!  Is it in English though? Or Subtitles?
What about TARA or China Rush? I remember watching about 10 Mins of the First Leg for one of the Asian Seasons, but can't mind which one?   ???

Sadly, none of the seasons of TARLA have english subs  :( .

About TARA, I liked all seasons; but my fav is TARA2.

I on the other hand watched the first three seasons of TARA and found the second to be one of the worst ones of all the international seasons, even worse then TAR family edition. Hahaha the third was great though

I thought the second was better than any of the other Asian versions. It went to Europe and Africa, and it had two hilarious idiots running the race as well as a lovable deaf guy.

The worst out of all the international versions is without a doubt the Vietnamese version. Do not call anything "the worse" until you've seen that one.

I found those two idiots not funny but extremelly annoying. The other teams were not so good either. The route was ok but a bunch of horrible decisions, like when they did an entire leg in Japan then in the end had to take a train to pitstop and everyone was equal and it was tbc

But if want, you can see TARLA 5 and read the live update in the international board to understand.

Thanks Alen, but I think watching it, and having to read on a seperate board what they're saying would take away from the enjoyment of it.
I'm thinking of starting TAR Asia.

I really like TAR: China Rush, season 1. It has pretty good tasks, locations, and teams (and since all the teams are expats, they are fluent in English). The other seasons of China Rush are good, too, but feature more Chinese locals (which isn't a bad thing, but forces me to read the subtitles, which I find a little annoying). I would start with season 1.

I agree with Paldog. I think that all seasons of China Rush are good, but there is a bit more product placement than the US Version (with the Hilton Teddy Bears). You should watch them.

Yes, I think so. It's just that... speedbumps are too easy to skip. Only someone who doesn't strategize well would use the EP on the speedbump.

Unless you are John & Jessica  :funny: you'll probably use your Express Pass WAY BEFORE you finish last. So I don't think it applies.

I got a question. Is it possible for two teams to use their Express Pass in the same leg/or in the same task?

Yeah , two teams can use the Express Pass on the same task.

And the Express Pass is availiable to the Speed Bumb too.
