I remembering thinking back when Anchorage was used as the TAR12 finale, that Alaska was being overused and thus cliched. Flash forward to now, and realizing now that visits have become few and far between. And this time, it's to a city that was never visited before.
Also, I'd say that the slate of finale cities was wiped clean after All-Stars, since they would have a full leg instead of a half-leg. So we could see Seattle, Chicago, and Dallas in the near future seasons.
Funny how some people here are already getting tired of Indonesia, after fans wanting it so badly for a long, long time. And it was a lot more so after the Asian and Aussie editions went there beforehand.
