The NEXT EMMY WINNER? TAR 25 Nominated Episode is....!!
« on: June 15, 2015, 01:56:24 PM »
This year's submitted episode will be TAR 25's EP 5 "Morocc'and Roll"!! Congrats to the cast and crew!!
 
(The Video and Article in the Link contains some mild TAR 27 chatter.)
 
Quote
During our recent webcam chat "The Amazing Race" host/producer Phil Keoghan reflects on the show's 10 Emmys for Best Reality-Competition Program, "I wish it was my secret. I have to say, it's just an extraordinary group of people that have been able to come up with the magic ingredients to make it work.


Keoghan continues, "Sometimes when you take a really wonderful idea like the
idea of 'Amazing Race' and then you put the right people in [with] passion for
that idea, and then those people bring their best to it, sometimes you end up
with magic, you end up with the secret sauce, you end up with something that
just works. We've been very lucky."

 
...

 
Keoghan reveals exclusively to Gold Derby that the show will be submitting
the fifth episode from Season 25 ("Morocc'and Roll") to Emmy judges this year.
"It's a goody," he says with a thumbs-up

"Our fans are pretty good. They don't give away too much. Sometimes people love dropping spoilers, but our fans are good. They tend to do it in such a way that doesn't ruin it for fans who don't want to know."--Phil Keoghan

Nice move! That's one of my favourite leg ever. <333 And also easily the most well-designed leg from 2014-2015 cycle!

I think one of the Namibia or Peru leg from 26 would be great to send too. But Morocco is just <33.

That was absolutely the best episode they could've chosen.  (Actually, it was maybe the only episode they could have chosen other than Morocco 2 or Philippines 2.  And note... both TAR25, NOT TAR26 lol)

I'm a bit shocked that 22.07 didn't win since I think it's pretty solid episode.  :o

And it way FAR better than 14.01 (lol, any legs from 13 would be better than this one), 20.08 (Very boring) and 23.09 (It's great but NOT that great, but they had no other choices anyway)

India held most of Emmy legs. <3333

Really?

Part Like the Red Sea was the best episode in a mediocre season TBH.

An animal ARI + An animal Detour + A difficult RB + Nicole iconically melting down + All the teams delivering= Best episode of 23.

I agree with TAR16 being submitted tho, wtf were they thinking?

TAR15>>>>>>>TAR16.

I don't think 15 was better than 16. I rather see a season that's trainwreck than a season that's well designed but with a dominating team  :res:

And all of TAR23 was awful. No episode gets saved.

They only had TAR23 and TAR24 to submit for 2014 :lol:
They really had no other choice.

Dominating teams don't bother me, I loved TARCAN2 even though they dominated, but I think dominant teams just have to be entertaining. Like, I don't think anyone would have complained if Hayley & Blair won 6 legs (Thailand 1-2/Amsterdam could have added to their total of 3 TBH) :lol:

I love Hayley & Blair but if they dominated the season they would look exactly like Rachel & Dave and that's sad.

I don't like the choice...personally, i found it quite boring.! I mean, a stupid Speed Bump (as usual), a really easy RB (despite the smell), an OKAY Detour, some wasting on the U-Turn and a very predictable end.
How can they not choose the Singapore Leg??  ??? :gnome
I mean...COME ON.! That battle for the FF was awesome.! The massage detour was craaazyyyy to watch, and the RB was waaaay better than delivering some stuffs on a bike  :funny:
Besides, the ending with the clue to the pit stop thing added some drama and suspense to the final result.
Anyway, good luck...i wish for the best for TAR this year as usual

i thought they will submit the season 26 episode to emphasize the blind date idea
Personally, i would choose 26.06 ( Monaco ) as the episode to submit as the result is very unpredictable and it is like the original TAR episodes

As a Singaporean, I would of course wish that they submitted the Singapore leg...

BUT NO, IN ALL HONESTY, THAT WAS THE BEST LEG THAT SEASON... Besides of course, Kym and Allie getting snuffed.

But, I'm okay with the Monaco leg... since there was random shuffling of team's placing everywhere after the Roadblock and Kym and Allie random win plus drama between Mom/Daughter and Keith/Whitney wooot. AND IT'S MONACO. SO MUCH CULTURE!

I can see why they picked Monaco over Singapore just because of this...
