Hang in there. I find it impossible to tell who I will or won't like from the cast reveal. Some I doubted have gone on to be favorites!

When I saw TAR 7 and TAR 9's cast.. I wasn't impressed.

TAR 7 turned out to be fine and with a few favourites till today.

But TAR 9 remained... to be.... ew.

For TAR 16, I knew I'll like Steve and Allie and Jody and Shannon and they still turn out to be the only teams I like from that season.

There's some teams from this season that I know I'll like... but some I know I'll hate... :lol:

Am I the only one not yet liking this season? The cast is not really likeable; most of them make me think of TAR16. There are yet again two dominating teams. The locations are awesome but most of the tasks are lame. Build a small gingerbread house? Rappel down (again)? Curling? The simulator last episode? Build a small solar cooker? Washing a statue or a real person? Really? They are all pretty easy, not intense, and most of them dosen't showcase the scenery and the culture. The moments I prefer now are between the tasks, where they go to castles, museums and old cities, where the tasks should be.
But what I like are the return of more than one FF, and :meow: between teams :lol:

The tasks are lame? :o What about balancing a bottle on your heard during a dance, building pyramids of watermelons, stringing harps, scrubbing down oil covered bathers, searching through cars full of apples, and trimming beards? :duno: I thought the curling with a gnome was a nice touch. :lol:

I said MOST of them :lol: The ones you mentionned were pretty good (with the exception of the oil, which was easy - it was unbanlanced with the long apple task), and this is why I didnt mentionned them in my small list. I forgot to mention that the Paraguay leg was awesome (half of the tasks you mentionned are in that episode tho).

IMO, I just think the tasks this season have been better than last season. :tup:

I don't think it's necessary for a detour to have "balanced" tasks. One could be easier, or harder or balanced. Sometimes they make the detour description sound harder or easier to deceive the teams.

I do think the tasks in Azerbaijan are too easy and straight forward. I wish they put a time limit in the roadblock. And make you wait for 15 mins before you can start again, if you fail to finish within the time limit. Just to add drama. :lol:

Although I've expressed my opinion on the other thread, the only 2 sets of racers I generally like on this race are Art & J.J and Bopper & Mark, I loved what they did for Bopper and Mark at the end of episode 4? giving them some money, brilliant to watch and shows that Art and J.J are good guys.

Special mention to Brendon for having to deal with the endless Tantrums.

when we first got the press releases on TAR20 i was pumped up because we had NO idea that the race went to Germany, Azerbaijan and TANZANIA!!!
when i first took a look at the cast, i thought they all looked pretty competitive, and it looked like they got FF teams with POTENTIAL to win
i was upset that there weren't any generational teams (parent/child, grandparent/child)
but i was excited for a competitive race!   :yess:  :wohoo:

so far I'm really liking TAR20  :hrt:

we have the loveable teams (Kentucky and Clowns!!!), the villains (Varalphasaurus), and the teams we love to hate (BRENCHEL), and then we have the meh teams.. but still a good mix which i like!!  :tup:

Leg 1 was a great opener, SKYDIVING!!!! and even though there wasn't really a starting line challenge, i liked the fact they had to get the first clue themselves
and the Misa and Maiya elimination.... unforgettable!!!!  :lol:  :wohoo:

Leg 2 hmm... meh, i did like the Roadblock but thats about it  :groan:

Leg 3 WOW. almost FLAWLESS leg. AIRPORT DRAMA!!! tough detour!! good enough roadblock, and the Twins and Varalphasaurus foot race!!!!! the changing positions, overall, an awesome episode. GO PARAGUAY!  :luvya:  :conf:  :wohoo:

Leg 4 besides the salami Detour, it was a @#$*!y leg  :gaah:

Leg 5 now you guys have been saying the challenges aren't EASY, but at least they are creative!!  :wohoo: i thought the detour was great and equally balanced out. i loved how we got a tour of two beautiful castles, and the Roaming Gnome was used in a much better way. and even though it was weird, i really liked the Pit Stop hahaha COWS  :hrt:

Leg 6 i literally knew NOTHING about Azerbaijan! but it looks like a great place :tup:
the fast forward was effective, but was only exciting because two teams went for it
the RB i thought was REALLY cool. it looks easy on TV but I'm sure it was much more frightening than you think. it wasn't that bad cmon  :jam:
im glad they managed to include Old Baku, which looks beautiful  :)
and the detour was EQUAL. the oil was the easier task but was further away from the detour clue. the apple task was harder but was way closer to the detour clue
average episode  :tup:

i hope Tanzania, India, Japan and Hawaii continue to make this an AWESOME race!!!

 :hearts:  :hearts:  :hearts:

Depends. India is HUGE. Going to a NEW area is just like going to a whole new country...almost. :lol:

Otherwise it is sort of like saying you have seen America, but you have only been to NYC.

India is interesting, complex, colorful, and always challenging for the racers, so I don't mind!

I was hoping for two Japan legs. Putting Kyoto & Osaka (just a speculation) in one leg is very lame. :lol:

They could have flown into another country in the region, perhaps Sri Lanka as its the only safe and recently unvisited country then went onto India and flown to Japan.

We have confirmation that there are 2 India legs...

I know just stating what they could have done instead of having two legs in India.  :tup:

Yes, they could have, although to fly past all of southern India to reach Sri Lanka and then fly back to Kerala does not make any sense in an environment where costs matter to CBS.

Kyoto is a very lovely and revered city for the Japanese people. It would be very appropriate for WRP/CBS to have scheduled a leg devoted exclusively to Kyoto, which is only about 60 miles from Kyoto's Kansai Airport. Osaka is more of a super-large Japanese metro area.

Exactly my thought. As a Japanese, I am deeply saddened by it.
It's like squeezing your country's most beautiful city with a random Megalopolis.
But my spec could be wrong tho, maybe it's just an Osaka leg.

jiajia12,

The rumor that Vanessa's age is 38 is being spread by a vindictive Rachel. If you believe the official ages for all AR20 racers, Vanessa is only 31 (4 years older than Rachel).

Ugg the preview makes me dislike Vanessa and boreder patrol more and like the feds/teachers better.I have heard that B/R like Patrol now that show is over but i cant stand them and i if they win the show then as much as i love Brenchel would ruin the season for me. I rather see the feds/teachers win over them.And Boring Rachel and her husband just bore me dont find them interesting at all. Wish the final 3 were Brenchel,KYTeam and Feds but dont think that will happen.
