One country that may now be on the permitted list is Myanmar now that President Obama and Secretary Clinton are due there for an official visit in about 10 days. 

Just had a big eathquake there:

I would be really surprised if the race doesn't start in South America. I'm hoping for Brazil and the Patagonia Region  :hearts:.

Brazil and patagonia would be repetitive. Perú & Ecuador would be really nice. But i don't think SA will be visited this year.

All I'm hoping for South America is that they kill the Chile & Argentina pairing. Whenever Chile is a destination, I always sigh and say "Argentina again, right?" :(

They did it in TAR5 and TAR20.  BTW, Uruguay is a good option, with only one previous visit (TAR5).

Some cool spots they have not visited is The Galápago Islands, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, Easter Island and The Amazon. If they go to Venezuela, it could be so cool if they went to Canaima National Park.  :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

One place I feel it's hard for them to not visit, purely for its convenience, is Qatar(Doha). It could easily serve as a transition point between Asia and Europe or even Africa. It would be a new country as well.

Could be so great, since there where no new countries in TAR 21.
So i hope there is a lot of new countries like TAR 19 there had 4.

I'm still betting on a Europe first leg. It's been a while since they started there (Season 17). If this coming season is anything special, I hope North America or a Pacific Island would be the first region to be featured. In order for them to get their ratings back, TAR should include a rarely seen region in the world. Perhaps they could feature Greenland, the Himalayas (Northern India or Nepal), the exotic Central Asia or Pacific Islands. These routes they're featuring recently are too generic.
Oh Brian, I can't wait til after dinner. Cos then we'll go home and you can watch me have my period.

I also agree it has been a while since the race had a europe start, but I think they are saving that for Season 23, since we cant have three summer starts in asia in a row. I'm hoping Season 23 starts in SCANDANAVIA!!! :luvya:

I wonder what the special casting is going to be for TAR22.  I noticed that recently the even numbered seasons have all had either crossover teams or returning teams or something like that.  TAR16 had Jeff & Jordan.  TAR18 was Unfinished Buisness. TAR20 had Brendon & Rachel.  So I'm excited to find out what we're going to have like that in TAR22  :hoot:

Absolutely. AR22 could already be underway with us not picking it up. It is possible to devise a route that does this, but World Race Productions usually likes a minor amount of during-the-race publicity. If it hasn't started already, there is now a 3 week window to do so.

Ryan (season 21) was also a former reality show competitor on the Martha Stewart Apprentice, but don't forget about the way past seasons like Rob & Amber from season 7 and all-stars.  ;) They were incredible racers, but had bad attitudes. Alison from Big Brother 4 was forgettable. She participated with her ex-BF, Donny in season 5. I'm hoping for a CBS soap opera or A&E reality appearance couple this season.

No idea. But they keep adding posts in the spoiler thread that only say "Saved" and I keep getting excited for nothing.

LAX has two flights to Melbourne tonight, though its probably "Its going to Aus/NZ" that happened in 20/21 :lol:

Show content

ETA: Though in recent seasons(TAR20/21) they usually bunch all the teams on a flight to somewhere and have Phil fly direct. Ie in TAR20 Phil flew direct(I think) and the rest connected in Miami and in TAR21 they flew the teams to Taipei and Phil flew direct to film the stand ups & task descriptions.
