Your Favorite Detour Name & Roadblock Question?
« on: July 23, 2012, 10:44:54 PM »
When it comes to Detour and Roadblock, TAR always gives a unique name for Detour and cryptic question for Roadblock. It's not an important thing, to be honest, but I like the way TAR named them :lol:

For Roadblock question, I like TAR 15 episode 2, the second leg in Vietnam: Who's feeling just ducky?
An epic question for one of my favorite Roadblocks! :hearts:

For Detour, I choose TAR 2, the first leg in Thailand: Confusion Now or Confusion Later.
I also love Detour name in TAR 3: Count the Money or Run the Numbers.

Which one is your favorite?
TAR Greece: Soon. DTAR 2: Soon

I really liked "Balanced Bricks or Balanced Meals" from Bangladesh in TAR 17. I don't know why, but that's probably my favorite.

my most favourite roadblock is the tea tasting challenge in Kolkata ( TAR 18 ) it's just so unexpected to drink the tea in china and memorize the same tea in India

Detour:
for some reason i choose The detour in the 12th leg of the amazing race 3 in vietnam, Hue. the baskets are just so troublesome.  :)

TAR FAN INDONESIA, it's about the RB questions and Detour names, not about the tasks itself.

My favourite detour names are of the Kunming leg in TAR18, 'Embrace the Future' or 'Honor the Past'.

The best RB question I can come up with right now is: "Who can handle some shady dealings?" in the first sunglasses selling RB in Ghana.

These names are what I can come up right now.

Roadblock: "Confucious says 'Who's ready to play telephone?'" (TAR19, Leg 1)
Detour: "Spirit World" or "Natural World" (TAR18, Leg 2)

my most favourite roadblock is the tea tasting challenge in Kolkata ( TAR 18 ) it's just so unexpected to drink the tea in china and memorize the same tea in India

Best RB question for me (that I can think of right now) is "Who gives a damn?" from the typewriter task in the TAR19 finale. It really made me laugh. :lol:

Those are my favourite names too!  :hearts: However the task itself was actually pretty boring  :gaah:

The best Detour names were unaired :gaah:.
Season 18, Leg 8. The original detour names were seen in Phil's Diary. "Father of Psychoanalysis" or "Mother of all Meals". Why did they change it?!!!
