For some reason, I really like this route more than TAR19. It seems like we will have less legs in the same country.

Also, a lot of flights seem to be happening. Hoping for flight drama. :hrt: :conf:

I see the assumptions that have been made about the route. One thing troubles me, the length of time assumed in Paraguay. I believe that there was one leg somewhere in Argentina (and there are several possible locations for it). Now if that is the case and there are 8 countries visited, then logic would tell you that one of the Asian countries did not really happen. Here is my assessment:

Argentina - I think so
Paraguay - yes
Italy (Torino) - yes
Germany (Fussen) - yes
Tanzania - yes
Qatar - maybe not
Azerbaijan - yes
Nepal - maybe not
Japan (Osaka) - yes

I want to bitch, moan, squeal that the cast doesn't give me a good vibe. Am I alone?

I sense a really ugly season unfolding (TAR 16).

HOPE AND PRAY THAT I AM WRONG. :'(

Like BVM said, I think this is going to be a very competitive cast, unlike the past seasons

No you're not alone :(

I have a feeling they are repeating 15-16 with 19-20 :res:
19 had ok teams but not more, pretty good locations, but meh tasks like 15
For 20, I hope I'm wrong, but I feel that I'm going to hate some teams as much as the cops and Brent/Caite. A chance it has pretty good locations (at least on paper) compared to 16, so it will not be that bad I guess :duno:

And I hate the fact that there are no parent/child teams and no one older than 45  (:;)

Joab,
You are quite correct. AR20 has the most potential for major conflict among teams than any prior season. I would not call it ugly, but both competition within teams for "who decides" and competition between teams will be at maximum levels.

Which TPTB would love. I would much rather have honest competition between Type-A teams than the artifically manufactored conflicts that production has encouraged in the past by segregating the teams, etc.

Yes, Azerbaijan! I think they decided to visit in Azerbaijan because it's hosting Eurovision Song Contest this year so they know now it's a safe country to go.

I have mixed feelings about the cast. For me they seem to be quite boring and I hope there will be lots of drama! :meow:

This season reminds me of a very TAR 6-ish type of cast for some reason. Kris/Jon, Freddy/Kendra, Jon/Vic, Lori/Bolo, Hayden/Aaron, Adam/Rebecca, Lena/Kristy type of teams. Am I alone again? Not exactly entire similar.. but I don't think I can find another season with almost similar type of teams.

2 teams of agents, the all-female teams (except Misa & Maiya) looks like they can kick some ass, the all-male teams reminded me of BJ and Tyler VS Eric and Jeremy once again.

I'm not going to judge pre-season... but unless an all-female/co-ed team is able to win the first leg instead of an all-male team.. I'm afraid the whole season is going to unfold boringly again. :(

But sometimes... unpredictable things may happen and that adds more drama to the race. This is hoping that it does not turn out to be like a TAR 9, TAR 13, TAR 15 or TAR 19 race where only one/two teams dominated the race and bore the entire season out of me. :groan:

Uhm, I love the cast? I love the destinations? I love the druhmuhs that may unfold? I'm betting 90% of my soul (loljk) that 'tis shall be better than TAR 13, 15, 16, and 19. <333

... and 90% of me just got influenced by Brendon and especially, Rachel <3333333333333333333333333

Cheers for a wonderful season! :hearts: :hearts: 20 is a good number for Survivor. I hope TAR too <333333333

I sure hope for TAR too. Not going to judge before I watch the season. When I saw TAR 7 cast I didn't really like the cast but ended up it was one of the more memorable season for me.. so this may be the same for me!!

The locations... I have nothing to complain about. They're awesome!

This is such a remarkable coincidence.  I'm going to be learning the Azerbaijani national anthem next month, for a concert of Azerbaijani music.  This will be cool to see the place visited by TAR at the same time!!

Well,you may know that the season X was bad,but because of one team,that makes this season to be a great season for you!

Example : I know that Season 16 was terrible...but i love Jet and Cord,that makes me watch that season again and again...

I see this season ending with a team I won't like winning.

I love seeing every single destination that the race goes to, so I know that they won't or even can't disappoint me there. But I hate the direction that the cast takes nowadays. It's purely for ratings, and I'm sure if CBS had their way, they'd have the entire cast made up of Big Brother/Survivor/Jersey Shore 'characters'.

It's fair enough when they are interesting and begin to develop their own stories. But case in point, the finish line of Season 11 was just embarrassing with the amount of camera time that Rob (of Rob & Amber) got, despite being one of the eliminated teams.

I definitely get a bad vibe with this cast. I moaned about last year's too, but I knew that there would be at least one team I'd enjoy. I just don't see it this season.
