all I remember from tar 13 was Dallas's lost passport...
How can you forget the infamous Dandered  :funny:

Ken & Tina are a pair of funny a-bit-older team that we are lancing in recent seasons
I still remember Tina's quote during the Cambodia detouur 'we are going to the dentist, to a pick up some new teeth for me  :funny:

Honesty, I would love either them or Kelly & Christy to come back in a returnee season

I've read rumours that Dandrew were approached for UB.

Yes I did too
Thank God they were not chosen
They are all-star material but definitely not having any unfinished business  :groan:

The "rumor" is fact, incidentally.  :angel
I would also argue they had unfinished business but ut's the kind that would implicate the show so I get why that wasn't an option. Even then, a terrible taxi in the finale and wanting to prove they're a good team got Jaime & Cara on the season so :shrug

I mean say what you will about their longevity on their original season but Zev & Justin qualified under the theme of "unfinished business" more than just about every team except Kisha & Jen.

Honestly the only change in cast I'd make (since I accept that certain Cowboys teams Globetrotters would always be cast) is Ken & Tina over Kris & Amanda. Maaaaaybe Sam & Dan over Mel & Mike but could anyone predict Mel nearly dying of hypothermia three legs in (don't answer that  :))

Just looking at the Wiki for TAR 10, and you know what, it was actually much better than it gets credit for.

- Tyler & James weren't the dominating Alpha Male team I remembered them to be.
- First ever FF team in the Final 3. (Even if it was the wrong one) #JusticeForBeautyQueens  :lol:
- It's also the first Season to have a team reach the Final 3 without winning a Leg.
- Most of the boot order was fairly unpredictable.  :hoot:
- Some stellar locations - Even with the first 6 Legs being in Asia.  :saywhat:
- Forgot how much I loved Duke & Lauren - Placing 2nd & 3rd, before their untimely elimination.  :'(

It definitely had it's problems - Leg 1 Mid-Leg Elimination :groan:  and AWFUL winners, but think I'll give it another watch once TAR 29 finishes up.
Wishlist for Next Returnee Season:
Kym & Alli - Misti & Jim - Mike & Rochelle - Hayley & Blair - Ernest & Jin - Cindy & Rick - Tiffany & Krista
 - Scott & Blair - Mike & Liz

Season 10 is great, except the Final Leg. Horrible Leg design

Season 10, often considered the most diverse race route of all time. Still my favourite season by far

Really?  :o  I've never heard that before.  :o  Why though, almost all the Legs were in hot, summery locations, and there wasn't any colder locations, with snow etc?  ???  Surely 18, or 22 would be more diverse - both had locations consisting of Beaches, Snow, Desert / Humid locations, Cities, Rural areas, etc.

Dustin & Kandice once admitted that they brought too many tank tops and just one t-shirt so they had to reuse that t-shirt on many occasions because wearing them wasn't appropriate in cold locations or cultural locations, so the route is definitely diverse.
Whatever.

Although I agree 6 Asia leg in a season would be too much but I like the execution on TAR10 since they touch East Asia (Beijing was delivered on terms of chaos factor, even the Mongolia leg have the Central Asia vibe), Southeast Asia (They visit northern Vietnam which last visit only cover southern and central Vietnam and not to mention Ha Long Bay), South Asia (They visit Southern India which TAR4 India 2 only visit there prior to this complete with driving RB), and West Asia/Middle East (New country of Kuwait).
TAR25: The best HD season since TAR18.
TARAS3/UB2 Potential Contestant:
Kym & Alli / Shelly & Nici (25), Hayley & Blair (26), Tanner & Josh / Denise & James Earl / Tiffany & Krista (27)

Do people notice that TAR 9 intro looks brighter and glowing?
Whatever.

Personally, I am not a fan of TAR 10. Some of the good teams went out early, like Vipul & Aarti, Kellie & Jamie and Peter & Sarah. I hated the six pack alliance and found this part highly laughable, and I felt that some legs were very underwhelming, such as the first leg in Beijing, China, the second Vietnamese leg, Mauritius, Madagascar (as the Fast Forward teams were beat), the tenth leg (they should have stayed in Europe) and the eleventh leg (which spends half time in Morocco and the other in Barcelona). The final leg was also extremely disappointing for it's design.

Moreover, I despised the majority of the cast. I liked Rob & Kimberley, the Beauty Queens, and Tyler & James (to a point) but Lyn & Karilyn... Words cannot even explain. It did have a lot of potential, with the diverse locations and all but this season is where the lack of editing started to show. Again, this is only my opinion.
