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

I really wish we could stay longer in the countries we visit, but I've been lucky to have visited most of them before, because I've done a tremendous amount of travel. - Phil Keoghan

I was expecting Switchback task in Argentina: meat-eating challenge  :wohoo: Is that possible?

I'm new here, anyway

WELCOME, Theodorus!!!

That Roadblock was in Mendoza, and TAR hardly ever visits twice places that aren't the Capital City of a country. That said, and knowing how big Argentina is, I don't think they would go again to Camping Suizo and make the same Roadblock in the same place. But the same Roadblock in another place? I think that *could* be possible.

I agree with you and racer that it was quite an epic Roadblock with all that 4-hour penalties applied, but I'm not sure if Mendoza could be home for a second leg in that city. Pure spec, of course.

TAR Greece: Ήβη & Ελευθερία F15 Leg 02 (Kos Town-418€)
Joab TAR24: David (Veteran) F18 Leg 04

The meat dish isn't exclusive to JUST Mendoza people...

I personally could see them doing it this year.  Honestly, I was surprised that they didn't do it when they visited Argentina last time (S16)... I felt that would've been a perfect opportunity (and then we wouldn't have had to deal with the lame lasso Roadblock...)

Mendoza is a long way north of San Carlos de Bariloche and Mendoza is a long way south of Salta. I like the hypothesis that transfers the 4 pounds meat eating challenge elsewhere, possibly in the Salta area or the exurbs of Buenos Aires (like La Invernada where a different sort of task prevailed in AR5, episode 2).

Here's something interesting: An interview with a Yale Professor of Law where she claims that she was asked to appear on The Amazing Race with her daughter, an offer which she declined.

Don't tell me you're going back to a quiet academic life. I feel we all know your family—Sophia, Lulu, Jed, and Coco and Push [the family dogs]. I mean, you're the Kardashians of the legal world! There must a reality show in the works, no?
Ha! Sophia and I were asked to be part of The Amazing Race. No, we're not doing it.
