So if Production handles the applying for visas, did every team have the visiting visa?

I buy some of the the former seasons of tar. I wish they would include scenes showing some of the work of the sound and camera guys. I love the live sightings that show those guys in actionb.

:welcome: to RFF SamualDude!

No word on a NZ franchise that I have heard... so far anyway!

I'd imagine it'll come around soon since Australia has one :P, I wonder if Phil would host it or a different New Zealand celebrity.

Why do you think producers went Netherlands - Spain - France as opposed to Netherlands- France - Spain in S21

Loire Valley to Barcelona must be a low train route.

Train is the same in the other direction. I would suspect it was the early arrival in NYC afforded by flying from Paris, as opposed to Barcelona or Madrid. There were 4 flights arriving @JFK between 12:00 and 12:45 pm from Barcelona/Madrid.......so the Paris flight gave production about +2 hours more daytime to film.

I thought it might have been due to the speed bump too... but I wonder if the legs were switched if placement would have changed

What would happen if the Express Pass was used in an intersection task?

I have been watching all former seasons again and am curious as to how production comes up with the dollar amounts that teams are given at the beginning of each leg.

Why not $400 instead of $392?

This is just one of many questions in my head about TAR.

Oh, I agree. I love it!

I was just curious if it was a calculated amount based upon the length of the leg and taxis needed.

I think it would be cool if it somehow referenced a former team or a past leg of another race.

Most likely both teams would get to skip it... i say this because this happens when a fast forward is used as part of an intersection

This is just one of many questions in my head about TAR.

My understanding is that World Race Productions uses a sophisticated model including the cost of non-airplane transportation, food allowance etc. in local currency. They make an adjustment just before the beginning of a race to the current exchange rate for the local currency.

Has any team ever lied to PRODUCTION about their occupation? I know some teams have lied to OTHER TEAMS  like Nary/Jamie and Maria/Tiffany did, but I've always wondered if anyone told production the wrong occupation.

They are investigated top to bottom, production knows more about them than their mothers. :lol:

I don't know if this has been discussed as I know of, but has any teams in any edition arrived at the Pit Stop thinking they have claimed 1st place, but learned they were actually last or vice versa (thinking they were last, but learned they arrived in 1st)?

I've always wanted to see an expression like...
PHIL (OR ANY OTHER TAR HOST): _____ & _____... :stare
TEAM: Give us good news! *crosses fingers happily for first* :bounce :bounce
PHIL (O.A.O.TAR.H): You are the last team to arrive... :(
TEAM: *Lucy & Emilia's episode 4 "confuzzled" face*... WHAT?! :o :o
PHIL (O.A.O.TAR.H): I'm sorry to tell you that you've both been eliminated from the race. :(
TEAM: Are you joking?! Oh...my... how could this have happened? Like, I seriously don't know... :umn:

TAR3 in Scotland the last place team had won the ff and arrived last so there must have been some sort of shock.
