TAR 18: Measuring Liechtenstein, making chocolate gnomes was memorable.
TAR 12: Teach It or Learn It RB, a nice way to experience a little of their culture.
TAR 9: Russian nesting doll detour, monkey feast roadblock, rollercoasters in Japan, and the final flag task.

Many of my favorite tasks are in TAR 15.

Eat the Wasabiiii!!
The Dubai legs <33 Gold counting, briefcase opening, snow, desert, slides <33
The Netherlands epic Detour <333
The Switchback
Gnome ring toss
The "candle a bra" invisible ink <33
Mud volleyball and cabbage slingshots
Search for the mini instruments <33333 :haha

And the second Czech leg was in the top most epic legs in TAR history :hrt:

But the horrible finale :(

I love most of those tasks too! :hoot: The second Czech leg was epic!!! ;)

But I enjoyed the finale. I'd probably say it was the best finale without a memory task. It was suspenseful, since the positions kept switching around all the time, unlike most of the more recent finales.

It is true about the position changes. The finale was probably more fun to watch than TAR18 or 19 or a few others but I thought the final task was very poorly planned.

Definitely agree about the final task. :tup: It was pretty poor. Although one of my faves won, so that's another reason why I love that finale. :lol:
