Some of these snafus aren't sole symptoms of China Rush as well; TAR 17's first Moscow leg was changed from an elimination leg to a NEL after the judge made an error at the Music RB, thus dropping Nick and Vicki far behind the other teams.  Thus, no speed bump in the next leg and an awkward bunching period.

Actually, Leg 7 was already a planned elimination leg, but the producers took out the Speed Bump due to difficulties most teams, especially Nick and Vicki, faced. :)

(They also bunched teams up at the first location, the circus, to be even more fair.)

On another note, 7 episodes in, I have to say, I'm incredibly impressed with China Rush. It's got a gimmicky name but for a version that stays in one country, it's really, really good.

Overall, I consider it the third best TAR version, after the Australian and the American version.
Bring on the 21!

Worst team wins the leg, the best team is eliminated.




What do the people in China think of some of the teams?

Agreed with Best Loser. They should have been out in 8th place.

I haven't watched this episode, but I notice that in Baidu Forum some Chinese fans are excited for the advent of a villain team on China Rush. They are comparing Zhang Yelin with Rob Mariano. :lol:

ETA: While some viewers are irritated by what the dating couple did, several fans comment that it was the twins themselves to blame for their making some wrong decisions. It's only the case that one team beat another.

... & Rob won Survivor: Redemption Island & was 2nd in TAR7!!! Maybe a villian pays after all! :lol:

Like all TAR racers said - it's the taxi driver that "killed" the twins! I wonder if they didn't mentioned to Allan "the 1 hour trip to take 4 ferries", would they be penalised for less than 1 hour?  :'(

Even though I'm not rooting for them, I give Zhang Yelin a lot of credit for the clue fake out.

Has anyone ever used an old clue like that before?  It's quite ingenious and diabolical.

Yeah, that's happened quite a bit actually. The most notable example I can think of (though I hate mentioning him especially since he's already been brought up recently) is Rob & Amber fooling Charla & Mirna in the fourth leg of All-Stars.

After EP8 aired, Zhang Yelin tweeted on Weibo.com, saying that he felt sorry if what he did in this episode hurt anyone's feeling. He said that he had watched a lot of seasons of Survivor and The Amazing Race, thus many strategies naturally came out of his mind.

That doesn't really bother me. I love it when people mislead other teams. But why did my favorite team have to be eliminated????

Thanks for the info.  I forgot about that.

I'm surprised that it hasn't happened more frequently in recent seasons.

Janelle told me the real reason that BBQ cousins got eliminated is because they didn't have passports and they knew it from the beginning.
She also said Hennifer did not eat the snails because they were disgusting and they had dirt and stuff in them.
I think we already know this stuff but this is just confirmation :)

But they still had one more leg to go before the Taiwan leg. They didn't need to eliminate BBQ so soon.

I posed this Q to Henry Su -

Quote
What pointers would you give to those who are aspiring to be TAR racers? :)


and he replied -

My advice for future Racers. Be prepared for A LOT of downtime, ie. bring some cards or UNO or something. Be ready for sleep deprivation and waking up at 4 AM etc. Be able to roll with the punches because reality TV is a bit of a circus, things are hectic, constantly changing, and oftentimes very disorganized. Most importantly, make sure your taxi driver knows where he is going!!

Some people have asked who Jesse Burke is - the one mentioned in the closing credits.  He was one of the Game Producers on the show who tragically died while on another assignment after filming completed for China Rush.  Jesse was hands-down the best Game Producer: organized, transparent, and fair; he will be missed.

Don't know why but khaishing has "privatised" her blog to those approved by her - so no go for the rest & http://henrysu.blogspot.com/ has removed his answer to my question:-

We were not about to eat a plate full of salty rocks.  The Game Producer returns and tells us that we just have to wait 20 minutes, pretend to finish the plate, get some parting shots, and then we can leave.  Done.

1. From Khai Shing's blog, she seems like a sociable person BUT after her elimination, her blog was "privatised" - is this a sign of a sore loser or what? I'm disappointed with this attitude!

2. Looks like the CR producer may have "advised" henry to remove certain unfavourable comments...  :duno:

3. After the many "insights" by both kahishing & henry, I'm beginning to lose interest in CR...  :tantrum

Personally I think Khai Shing probably get in trouble with the producers for what she put about a certain team and their avoiding elimination, it's not really the kind of publicity a TV show wants or needs. You could imagine if any of the current racers in the American Season revealed something they shouldn't have, they would get in trouble too.

I agree that China Rush behind the scenes sounds like a mess. Perhaps they need to use their budget a bit more effectively and if possible hire more people if its a production issue slowing teams down.

I don't think she privatized it because she's a sore loser. China Rush probably wanted it taken down, but since a lot of the stuff is just blogging about her travels, they compromised so that only friends and family could read it. That's just what I think. Funny how I'm constantly pinning the blame on the people who make the show I like.
