Leg 1 of Season 4. The most memorable moment that i can still remember is when Tian and Jaree is dead last then they caught up with Debra and Steve because I think Debra can't pass to some sort of an obstacle ( I forgot lol). Never missed any season after.

I don't know. It's TAR 2 when they are in Hongkong (forgot which leg). I was still 11/12 when it was aired in local TV in here in 2006 (Yeah, it's pretty late, I know). I was 6th grade back then, I think.

And that's why Tara & Wil still have a place in my heart :hearts: "I'm not a miner! No, you're an idiot." is so memorable :lol:

I forgot about this show and I skipped all the seasons until TAR 19 when I saw someone tweeting about TAR visited my country, so I looked up and fell in love again before rewatching the previous seasons :lol:

Season 5 was the first season I saw and knew what I was watching. However I do have memories of Amazing Race 2 in Hawaii and Thailand.

The only people who I think can trump that are the season one Racers. :)

Maybe Bertram and Elise? :lol:

I forgot!  :lol:
Seriously. The oldest memory I have of TAR was the eating task. It was a live octopus in South Korea. Season 3. I remember the guy said, the octopus was moving in his mouth. The tentacles were moving.
TAR 5 was the first full time season I've watched. I was so impress by the show. I was rooting for Charla & Mirna.
Oh Brian, I can't wait til after dinner. Cos then we'll go home and you can watch me have my period.

About the "infamous" 4kg of beef RB in Mendoza, I'm gonna tell something:  they shouldn't start eating the meat.  They should start eating the other stuff, and in the end the meat.  This is how we made it (and that includes the salads).

I have the first 8 seasons on DVD and couldn't decide on which season to start watching, so I just popped in TAR 8. We'll see how long this lasts.

My first was season 10, on the 9th leg. I got hooked because of the To Be Continued...
I guess that's why season 10 is in my Top 3 of best seasons..

I remember watching TV with my sister, and we caught the beginning of this show where they were introducing some teams. One of the first teams I saw was this team of hippies, with orange pants and fun-loving attitudes. I was instantly drawn to them. I continued watching to learn what this was about, and once I found out it was a race, I decided I would root for BJ & Tyler. My sister decided she liked team "MoJo" because they were cute. So we stuck with watching the show, where I got to see my team win. Since then we've been watching every season together, for over 6 years now!
So season 9 was my first and still my favorite.  :hrt:

Started with a marathon of Season 4, watched 5 and 6 weekly, bought the Season 7 DVD and then watched the rest on their respective airdates
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Season 6, episode 5.

I can honestly say I don't know how I got hooked because I was 9 at the time and it was the infamous Jon/Victoria fight at pit stop leg. My parents heard all the yelling and made me change the channel.

My next episode was Season 6, episode 8. I literally turned to it right as Victoria was screaming about her finger. After that, I didn't really watch the show except for change to it every once in a while.

I saw season 7 episode 4 and finale. They seemed great. The next time I saw it after that was Family edition. I heard them talking about Park City, and I've lived near there before. I then watched the rest of FE, falling in love.

Since I saw previews for season 9, I watched it till leg 3 since it was past my bed time. :P Once it changed to Wednesdays, I watched it from leg 5 on. Season 10 came and I loved the premiere.
Of course, then another problem arose. The air date changed to sunday, and I do not watch TV on sunday. (Religious views) I recorded it and watched it on tape till season 14 when I finally got DVR. I would watch the episodes on Monday morning at 5 am with my brother.

I definitely had a lot of obstacles keeping me from the show, but for some reason I stuck with it. Season 15 and 16 were horrible, but I watched season 17 and it was refreshing. I stopped watching the show actively starting season 19. I watched a few eppies of seasons 19 and 20, but they just don't have that magic. I have been rewatching TAR 7 and 9, and they have that definite magic for me.

I hope to come back to the show, but only if it convinces me.

Well I watched 5 mins of TAR 1 Leg 12 and turned it off as it was time to sleep. I watched the season finale the following week and I was hooked ever since. I think I have watched every episode of TAR, though I don't remember all of them!

The first episode I saw was in Season 16 with the stacking glasses and pouring wine on it. Then I remember seeing the Seychelles episode in that Season. My third episode I remember watching was the fake food roadblock in China in Season 17 and Nick & Vicki getting the 6 hour penalty.

I finally got hooked on Season 18 episode 2, and I watched that season. That summer, I went on YouTube and watched Seasons 12-17, seeing who the people on Unfinished Business were. I remember watching a season in one day. One day I went back and watched the Family Edition.

I still need to watch Seasons 1-7 and 9-11.

Same here.
I was walking by and my mom said "Look at this!" It was Mommaly zip lining across the gorge. I was impressed and have never missed and episode.
It was far better then the similar NBC show. I think they only got two seasons.

Les Moonves and the CBS honchos were so thrilled with the first episodes that TAR was delayed to be a "full" series and not a summer series as Big Brother was.


This was true. If memory serves me, they ordered two seasons before any aired.
