Future Switchbacks
« on: May 16, 2013, 01:46:24 AM »
So Season 22 featured 2 different switchbacks and it has become evident Switchbacks will continue to appear in future seasons but the question is what tasks would you like to see return as Switchbacks? For me I have three tasks I'd like to see return as Switchbacks firstly being the memorable meat-eating roadblock in Argentina, Secondly the memory challenge in Alaska and finally the memory challenge in Portland. What switchbacks would you like to see?

I would love to see the Unused/Unaired Detour choice from TAR 19 Belgium.

It remains one of my biggest TAR questions ever.....

Actually the detour was between the Bodybuilding Task that all teams chose to do and the Tintin task they did the next leg.

I don't think so. It would seem to unbalanced if that was it.

I haven't watched all seasons of TAR, but based on what I've watched, I hope these return as Switchbacks:
- TAR 15's Eat the Wasabi Roadblock in Japan
- TAR 16's In the Trenches or Under Fire Detour in France

I can tell you love that Detour because you used it in TAR:CK. :lol:

But yeah, I agree. We need another Japanese Game Show Roadblock. :)

Because I love tasks that can make teams struggle really much that may give an unpredictable result. *if you know what I mean :lol:

TAR15 Farmer's Game/Farmer's Dance

Please, no. Not memorable at all, at least for me.

I haven't watched all seasons of TAR, but based on what I've watched, I hope these return as Switchbacks:
- TAR 15's Eat the Wasabi Roadblock in Japan
- TAR 16's In the Trenches or Under Fire Detour in France

I would say no to this one as well. Memorable but not classic TAR. Too manufactured and fake. A second time would only make it worse.

But I agree that the TAR 6 lock Roadblock would be good, as well as the TAR 7 meat Roadblock and TAR5's Lagen wall climb.

Hm...as for TAR 9, how about the crickets Fast Forward? Or perhaps the epic final challenge involving the flags. For TAR 10 we could revisit the Great Wall climb, the Detour or Roadblock from Leg 2 (both excellent tasks), or the Lug It or Lob It Detour. For All-Stars, it could be fun to bring back the Eat It Up or Roll It Out Detour. :lol:

This IS correct. That is why they alll had to go out EARLY the next AM and do TinTin. Product placement!

TAR 17 leg 1 coracle task is one of those tasks that had potential but the teams were a little too far apart on that leg.

It'll never happen but I would be happy if they brought this task back :-[

We kinda did have a switch back to the lock task.. i thought it was really similar to the tree of love task in russia in S21 but future switch backs i would love to see S12 finale  memory task.. its one of the most plausible tasks and can be used for many seasons to come..

I would also love to see some unaired tasks

S1 Leg 1 roadblock
S1 Vatican City Fast Forward.
S10 Leg 7

Also this could be an awesome switchback but put it as a finale memory task
S10 Leg 9 Make Music Detour: Imagine the Final 3 Rapping about eveywhere theyve been. Tests Their memory, creativity, and possibly physically (making a dance to go with it) Maybe combine it with some props that appeared on the race and a few decoys

I say...
TAR7 Leg 3 roadblock (eat four pounds of a traditional Argentinian feast)
TAR12 memory task  :hearts:
TAR16 Leg 5 detour (pigeon & morse code) + u-turn
TAR17 Leg 1 roadblock (watermelons) :hearts:
TAR20 Leg 3 detour (harp & watermelons) and roadblock (bottle dance)
TAR20 Leg 9 roadblock (Bollywood dancing)
TAR22 Leg 1 2nd roadblock (sandcastles) :hearts:
TAR22 Leg 7 detour (brains & brawn)

I'm pretty sure about the watermelon roadblock.
btw, is this a speculation thread or a wishlist?

I'd also like to see a whole leg with switchbacks from different seasons.
