I have questions:
1. Can you tell me which team that is fan favorites of all seasons of TAR US?
2. There is Fast Forward in a leg with U-Turn?
Whatever.

For #2, a Fast Forward has appeared in a leg with a U-Turn, the two that pop into my mind is TAR16 in Singapore are TAR21 in Amsterdam.  ;D

I'm not sure what you mean by your first point? If your talking about teams that fans feel are the biggest fan favourites of all time, then I would say -

Charla & Mirna
Dustin & Kandice
Brook & Claire
Jet & Cord (Yea, I know a lot of people don't like them, but based on the FB fans this team needs to here)
Gary & Mallory
Bopper & Mark (Maybe this has lessened now after Marks appearance in All Stars)

I'm sure there a tons I'm missing, but of the top of my head, they're the teams I'd consider the biggest fan favourites.

And I'm not sure some you included are "fan favorites" to begin with.

And some people have short memories. There were teams not picked for the original All-Stars season that I think are fan favorites.

CBS has said this season was cast based on social media interest in a team, but I'm not so sure, because at least one team are fan favorites who weren't included (Jamyes and James).

I'd rather not even attempt to suggest who the all time fan favorite teams are because there are more opinions than there are visible stars in the sky on that topic.

My answer: Example Season 1 fan favorites are Kevin & Drew
Whatever.

Ok, if your looking for the fan favourites of each season, here's who I'd say - (These are Teams I feel the majority of people rooted for, and not necessarily my favourites of the season) -

Season 1 - Kevin & Drew
Season 2 - Oswald & Danny
Season 3 - Ken & Gerard
Season 4 - Jon & Al
Season 5 - Charla & Mirna
Season 6 - Kris & Jon
Season 7 - Uchenna & Joyce
Season 9 - Fran & Barry or BJ & Tyler
Season 10 - David & Mary or Dustin & Kandice
Season 11 - Charla & Mirna or Dustin & Kandice
Season 12 - Kynt & Vyxsin
Season 13 - Toni & Dallas
Season 14 - Margie & Luke
Season 15 - Sam & Dan or Flight Time & Big Easy
Season 16 - Jet & Cord
Season 17 - Brook & Claire
Season 18 - This one I'm not sure? Most of them :lol:
Season 19 - Amani & Marcus or Bill & Chati
Season 20 - Mark & Bopper
Season 21 - Jaymes & James
Season 22 - Joey & Meghan
Season 23 - Chester & Ephraim
Season 24 - So far Mark & Mallory or maybe Dave & Connor

We haven't got any news of the renewal of this show so far. Will S24 be the final season?

Don't think so. Neither does ET:

From my experience about a decade ago, now, I would say that if there was any such possibility the "network" would be sending out an alarm.
CBS makes money off of TAR not just from advertisers in the most highly preferred demo but from international syndication, and they finally figured out they can used TVGN which CBS half-owns as well as I Tunes and Google as revenue streams. And the overnights are now so deceptive as to the actual audience that watches within the 30 days now being tracked by CBS Research internally, that worrying about the ratings has become ridiculous. (When we're still in the Top 25 in the weekly broadcast ratings, no matter what those overnights look like, it has become next to meaningless.)

Which team was the last team to complete TAR24's starting line task?

The only ones shown were the first five teams who finished it. But I have a feeling that after the first flight tickets ran out, they just gave the rest without checking the Chinese characters.

But on TAR's facebook page, I saw a photo of Mark & Mallory bringing the correct answer with them. So the moment I saw that pic, I was confused whether everyone finished the SLT or not.

Is the task location of Ep3 of TAR24 near to where the first season of Survivor was filmed?

Yes, it was. Kota Kinabalu is the nearest big city to the island of Pulau Tiga (about 50 km away). On Survivor: Borneo it may have even been mentioned by name.

I'm sure this has already been asked in this thread, and I'm sorry for asking again, but what's the paper teams have taped on their steering wheels? The extra instructions that come in the envelopes?

I believe the papers are vehicle agreement notices. Rules of the car like no radio, no use of GPS, those sort of shenanigans.

They are "extra" instructions re how to go, speeding, etc. We have shots of some of these...

Another way of wording this would be has there ever been a NEL / TBC / KOR on Leg 2.  The answer's no, but all of these have happened with still 11 teams.

Season 15 Leg 1 - 11 Teams - NEL
Season 18 Leg 1 - 11 Teams - KOR / TBC
Season 19 Leg 1 - 11 Teams - NEL

TAR Aus Season 1 Leg 1 - 11 Teams - NEL
TAR Aus Season 2 Leg 1 - 11 Teams - NEL (Although this was due to the use of the Salvage Pass)

Hope this helps  :)

Weird indeed. :stare

Maybe TAR didn't do this so that the 1st team eliminated gets a new companion at sequesterville after the 2nd leg. :lol:

That's why there's never been a Leg 2 NEL.
However, they COULD have had one in TAR15 if Poker was eliminated in Tokyo.
