I already posted my order, but I wanted to go into detail:
1. TAR 22 - This season had one of the best routes in a long time. From tropical islands to deserts to grasslands to snowy mountains to nighttime city-views to everything.. it was amazing. I also loved that strong teams went out early. Even though I loved the legs a lot, they were on a rollercoaster from good to bad to good to bad, but fortunately, mostly good! It started off in hot and beautiful Bora Bora for two legs off to New Zealand which wasn't so fun for me.. and onto Indonesia (again
) but luckily it was probably the best Indonesia leg yet however consisting of the dumbest mistake ever of not utilizing the Express Pass! Vietnam was okay but its suspense was killed with Dave & Connor had quit in the first 10 minutes of the episode. Botswana 1 was a slight disappointment but 2 picked it right back up! Switzerland wasn't so great... but Berlin helped bring this season on point! Scotland and Northern Ireland were great as well. We finally went to D.C for a finale leg! It's too bad that it was pretty much luck and the competition wasn't so tight... but the winners were very deserving.
2. TAR 20 - This season kicked off with a quite boring first leg.. but was saved by Misa & Maiya who completely missed the Pit Stop! The season preview at the end of the first episode told me that this season was going to be great... especially the drama. I seriously loved the drama this season and that's what has been missing in recent Races! I also loved how none of the teams actually liked each other
except poor Bopper & Mark and Nary & Jamie. Speaking of Nary & Jamie, they had what I thought the hardest Speed Bump to date.. Who can forget one of the best legs ever.. the third leg of the season? The tasks were so well-balanced and were all focused on skill and not luck - (watermelons, harp, bottles) - with an epic footrace of Vanessa & Ralph vs. Elliott & Andrew to the Pit Stop. Overall this season had a small touch of old-school TAR.. which is probably why I really liked it.
3. TAR 21 - Great teams (they seriously saved this season), airport drama, and basically drama among the teams as well
4. TAR 19 - I came around to re-watch some of this season a while back, and I don't really see why I disliked this season so much. I think this season got off to an okay start, only to be completely ruined by Thailand. The last 1/3 of the season or so when they touched Europe picked this season up.. I loved those legs! Panama was crazy in a good way, while the finale brought the season back down because it was so underwhelming.
