I'm new here, but since 2 months i am reading this forum every day. I am a very big Amazing Race Fan - my name is Filip and i am from Poland, and since this leg was in Poland i felt the need to write something about it
. Oh and btw. my English is not perfect but i hope that you'll all understand me.
But on to buisness.
I don't think that the producers have entirely thought about the whole "double, non-elimination" leg. First of all the skip to Poland with not seeing the roadblock at the Czech church - i wanted to see how the teams are doing with that (they should at least make something like with Jet and Cord in TAR 18 where on one screen should be first 4 teams where they would receive the clues, and on the other screen two other teams performing the roadblock) but well, it's the producers decision.
Second of all the train ride to Krakow AT NIGHT. That was pretty much suicidal. Tyler and Nathan are pretty much lucky that the only thing that the thievs have done is stealing the money, because trust me, worse things happened for other travelers. The night trains in this part of Europe are pretty much dangerous - robbery and other thinks are very often.
The locations - pretty much everyhing that Krakow and the coutryside have to shown. Too bad that some of the teams did not travel to Zakopane, this is the very beautifoul city especialy in Winter
And the pitstop! I was practically yealiing when i saw where Grant Bowler and the greater have standed - I WAS STANDING IN THIS PLACE ON LAST VACATION! I WAS STANDING IN THIS PLACE ON LAST VACATION!
The tasks - the same thing as locations. Tasks involved practically all things that were very common in Poland [not searching the cristal key in the pile of salt, but i meant the Salt only.] So i am happy that through the tasks they shown on what Krakow is famous
And the ending! Pretty much i had the same emotions like in the Port Elisabeth race for the first place good job for the producers for that:)
I'm waiting for the Israeli edition and of course for the Polish leg. But i'm hoping that in next TAR some other parts of Poland will be also visited.
I'm happy that Chris And Anastacia are gone - at least we won't be hearing any fights with those two. I'm cheering for Matt and Tom and Jeff and Luke - with the first cuple i have Jet&Cord syndrome - i just love anyone with cowboy hats, but they are also funny, and with the other couple... well i just love to see them, how they interact, how they traveling
. Hope that Nathan and Tyler or Dave & Kelly will be eliminated soon - i just hate them.
That's all from me
