If I had to guess maybe an early Saturday morning start?

TAR 20 is on the way!!
 
 Perhaps even a former racer with a new family member??
 
 

That's interesting. I wonder who if anyone returning.


Maybe someone got married recently? But I wouldn't like that. It would feel a lot like Eric and Danielle.

When I read that statement, I thought a former racer teamed up with someone who hasn't raced in TAR before. That'd be unique.

I think we're pretty much all expecting an east coast start, heading to Europe first, possibly Latin America.

We are? That's news to me. It might be right, but I haven't heard any reasons why it will happen.

"Pretty much expecting" is a too strong of an expression. Hope should be a better way to take it.

Production wise it would be easier for producers to just repeat LA as start city once again. I sense a lot of fans are hoping (maybe expecing) a change for TAR20, after so many cycles starting in LA, maybe TAR20 will start in the East Coast.

Personally I speculate LA again if they keep with the West Coast start city, as someone pointed elsewhere, the staff there must already be used to it.
However, if a East Coast city is to happen, NYC seems to be a possible location for the start city, as would fit well, with NYC being the end city for TAR1.

Regarding contestants, how about Jaime and Erik Huffman from Survivor China?

Maybe heavily recruited is the incorrect term, but most (some?) didn't get selected by auditioning at their local CBS affiliate in smalltown (Saugus) USA.

I am a purist...I would like in an ideal world to see our TAR contestants all come from a pool of people who know and love the show, not those who only get exposed to TAR in a sequester video marathon. I like best "regular" people who APPLY.

But after watching and loving teams like Amani and Marcus, and the SnowBoarders, "recruited" is not the dirty word it used to be to me...casting has had some major successes by going outside the normal applicant box.

And I have no idea how this cast will end up balancing out between applied vs recruited of course.
 
But I still consider multiple "blind" emails reaching out to (semi) celebrities and people on social media re "would you like to" and "looking for" to be heavily recruiting...so yes.

Superfans don't usually make for great tv, and in fact they are one of the biggest threats to keeping the show fresh and exciting. Superfans are less likely to make big moves like U-turning other teams because they don't want to upset the fans, they are able to anticipate everything that's about to happen so there are fewer genuinely surprised reactions to the different twists of the race, and they are predictably predictable. That's good for them as far as their odds of winning, but cautious and sensible superfans are more likely to talk about memorable moments by others on the race than make their own, and will probably be preoccupied with trying to make it onto the next all stars season.

Sounds like Dan and Jordan... who were always talking about all the strategic moves they won't make. :lol:

What can we expect?

1. Another starting line task, as I can understand the need to make it more interesting than just have teams drive from the starting line to LAX.

2. Fewer first-time visits to countries, as season 19 had quite a few.

Well of the three countries we know for sure, only one is new.. But I agree, we probably won't see them visit as many as last season.

I hope we have at least another two new countries..for a total of 3. Maybe one in Europe and another in Asia.

Hmmmm. Getting some new info that the recruited semi-celebrity-ish teams could maybe be for TAR 21?? :duno:

Welcome, Theodorus!!! :welcome2: :bigwelcome :welcome: :hello2: :wel2

I would love to see that task as well - it is one of my personal favourites :hearts: - but I'm not sure whether or not they were in the correct part of Argentina to do it on this season. Maybe someone else can provide better info? :duno:
