Worst TAR Leg
« on: July 15, 2013, 05:42:44 AM »
Since there's a best TAR leg thread, I made a "Worst TAR leg" thread. :lol:

Anyway, I'll start the convo.

One of the worst has to be TAR 22 Switzerland.

We literally waited for two weeks. </3

Too many trains </3

An average Roadblock </3

No Detour </3

Chynona eliminated </3

The Switchback wasn't as good or memorable </3

Overall just a really really bad leg. The scenery was gorgeous but the leg was so bleargh.

For me it has to be the final leg in TAR 10.

Roadblock and Detour in Paris, then the flight to New York and then they did next to nothing in NYC ...

Plus a very anticlimactic finish.

TAR21 Palma de Mallorca *chokes*, as well as TAR21 France *dies* were positively horrible legs. Palma had idiotic tasks, and so did France really, and had terrible results too :/

Surabaya Part 2 in Season 21. I don't like it too much
France Part 1 Season 16, fictional war and Tour d' France. Not much drama, boring
Bangkok Season 19, Come on only unimportant fish task in Bangkok? Why not put the pit stop stay in Phuket?
And yeah, I agree that Switzerland Season 22 and last 2 legs before the finale of Season 21 are not that good.

Since it aired on TV last night, I have to say.

TAR 21 Shanghai

It was seriously boring for a Leg 1. The tasks were boring to watch. I don't consider playing ping-pong compelling TV. And the task that DID have potential (eating hasma) disappointed. Just a really really bad start to a season I absolutely hate aside from some of the teams.

- the finale of TAR 16, the worst finale ever
- the finale of TAR 19, the second worst finale ever
- Shanghai leg1 TAR 21, The worst China leg ever (very disappointing.)
- Indonesia leg2 TAR 21, very poor use of my country, pointless task. hard to say but worst leg of TAR 21
-Switzerland leg8 TAR 22, i love every legs in switzerland. i mean it. except for this one. i love every single legs in TAR 22. i also mean it. except for this one too. thus making this leg the worst switzerland leg, and the worst leg in TAR 22

The Race 22 Switzerland leg was pretty bad, structure-wise - but at least it had lovely mountain scenery to look at along the way.  My nomination however is TAR8 Leg 3.

Yes, I know the Family Edition gets a lot of brickbats, but I thought its first two legs were pretty well put together.  That came to a screeching halt in Leg 3.  We have a detour where a risky choice did not offer any particular time advantage over the safe choice, which still didn't make a lot of difference as there was a charter bus semi-equalizer.  We were treated to the scenic wonders of a Waffle House.  Then at the other end, the leg placement was entirely decided by pulling a number, among teams that just got off the bus!
We can put a man on the moon, so why can't we have a Fast Forward in every leg?

TAR 14 in...well, lots of places. Germany had a Detour involving Austrian food and an American invention, Romania had fake gypsies and fake Dracula, India had a Detour where BEGGING ON THE STREET was the better option, Phuket had the convenient trip to a zoo known for their bouts of animal cruelty, and Beijing had a leg devoted to how awesome Michael Phelps was.

It's hard for me to like India legs, and i just did not enjoy that leg. The second India leg was decent though, the roadblock saved it.

Here's my time to shine and rant excessively about bad legs!  :hearts: lol Here's my personal thoughts on the top 8 worst legs ever in order (U.S. version only):
7] TAR21 (Leg 2)- Indonesia, of course. :groan: Surabaya... The bullriding task shocked me like Gretchen realizing she didn't have to ride inside a giant, wooden elephant. First of all, what was the point of staying there all night and morning waiting for a motorcycle ride across a field? Second, why haven't they even visited Jakarta completely and skipped to Surabaya? The Roadblock and Detour were pretty good thanks to the Texies and Twinnies' foot race.
6] TAR13 (Leg 2)- Some of you may be surprised, but I really could not find any reason to like this leg. Editing crews did a good job sugarcoating it with drama and "Where's the container?" confusion, but looking at the bigger picture, the bigger picture says the bigger advertisements on a wall drove me up the wall. That makes sense right? ??? The Detour was unmemorable to me. I personally did not like the janganda to ocean choice. The shipping container choice was original, but I wish teams could have received a code to unlock a container.
5] TAR15 (Leg 1)- The starting line elimination was so stupid. So stupid that China Rush eliminated the most entertaining team with that twist. Although I was kind of glad Eric & Lisa were eliminated since Eric was shaping up to be the biggest douche we've ever seen (Lisa was sweet, she doesn't need a guy acting like an egomaniac), they still could have gotten a 30-minute penalty and flew to Japan instead of only seeing a river with banks painted with awful graffiti. The wasabi bomb Roadblock was original and cool, but everyone was equalized there so it really wasn't a race in the first leg when the only task after eating is to lead a group of Tokyo locals to a shrine/temple.
4] TAR19 (Leg 5)- What was the point of two Roadblocks? Thai nature is so serene, it definitely needs a more unique task than finding a carp underwater. The spirit house tasks were so predictable from the point Phil said to disassemble them. Justin & Jen knew, did you? Again, the bus ride equalizer nullifies most progress made by the racers during this leg. Feeding the fishies were pointless.
3/tie] TAR16 (Finale)- I kind of wanted to barsh after seeing this finale route. Some of the places visited I have never heard of and I have lived in San Francisco for a good 13+ years of my childhood and occassionally visit a friend there. Rappelling off of Coit Tower was rather uninteresting compared to scaling across pods on the Singapore Flyer. The Star Wars task made me want to cringe as I had no idea the movie graphics were made in a San Francisco film studio, plus I hated the Star Wars series. Elimination order with the posters were okay, but apparently too easy.
3/tie] TAR22 (Leg 3)- If it wasn't for Chuck & Wynona, this leg would have sucked so much than it really is. First of all, what is shmozzle? I'm still asking that after months TAR22 has aired. Can't wait for years or never to find out the truly real definition of that "word". Both Detour choices arenhorrible and not even cultural to the South Island of New Zealand. Way to represent Southern New Zealand for Phil, WRP! :res:
2] TAR21 (Leg 9)- This is the most boring leg I have ever watched that it's so unreal. The Fast Forward was so random mixing a duck bus with eating herrings. I like Fast Forwards which are like the head shaving, Singapore Flyer scaling, windmill blade rides, once-in-a-lifetime experiences. I think anybody would have done that since you are just riding a bus and eating a local fish. Too tourist attraction-y. The Detour was so boring and forgettable that I had to check Wikipedia for the Detour choices and I still remember Pat & Brenda's unfortunate mistake of not taking the shortcut on the train ride into Marseille. The Switchback Roadblock worked in season 12 when there were ten teams and there was a larger stream to vault across. This season featured it like an active route info. Not entertaining. Oh yeah, I completely forgot about the U-Turn. :groan:
1] TAR22 (Leg 8 )- This Switzerland leg was a joke, right? It didn't even feel like a race as teams were mostly all clustered in train cars waiting to arrive at a snowy hill which made Chynona's bickering pretty pointless. I never again want to see or hear a train in my life (sarcasm). The Roadblock was horrible. It would have been 1000x better if teams had to actually climb Eiger than stand on a plank and traverse across it to grab a Gnome. Just because "traverse" is a big word for adventure, doesn't mean it's going to be amazing. After hearing Meghan's personal recap of the leg, she "claims" the Switchback was actually a side of a Detour. Hmmm... mistaken in words or not? ???

(TAR22's Leg 4, Both TAR21 Bangladesh legs, TAR20's Leg 2, and TAR3's Leg 8 barely escaped the list.)

TAR 16, Shanghai 2. Far and away the worst leg ever.

The Roadblock was to count things, which was the same Roadblock two legs before that in Singapore, and had a nearly identical answer (523 and 521).

Everyone did the same Detour, which was a needle in a haystack in a crowded room in a shopping mall. Not exactly beautiful Shanghai.

At least the Speed Bump was an interesting idea, but Louie & Michael finished it in like 30 seconds.

Not to mention that it was a Final 4 leg. I hated that it became a needle in a haystack to determine who made it to the Final 3.

YES THIS. I felt so bad for the Aiello family that they were eliminated because of pulling the last number. It was a terribly structured leg with only one thing that determined who went home.

Two likely possibilities:
NO SWITCHBACK: it really wasn't a Switchback after all since we've seen TAR14 do the original task as a route info and Meghan mentions it as a Detour. Switchbacks must be the same clue format (Roadblock, Route Info, Fast Forward, Detour) as the mother concept to be called a TAR legal "Switchback". So maybe that is why we saw two "Switchbacks", the Switzerland leg did NOT have a switchback.
YES SWITCHBACK: If only Meghan had a slip of a tongue, then that's okay.


@Rachel I was disappointed they didn't actually do anything in Christchurch regarding the earthquakes. I felt both of them and they were terrifying where I live. Should of tried to go close to the CBD and do a moment of silence.
I know, right. If they stayed in Christchurch, it would have been a much better leg. What did TAR22's New Zealand visit actually open about NZ culture? Nothing. TAR2 provided adventure in the bungee jump, TAR13 opened historic doors about the Maori aboriginals and the significance of the kiwi plant, the recent leg in NZ was a joke. You could do those tasks in rural Alabama and it would still be better than having them in New Zealand.

Really? The Detour was fantastic! Both detours were really hard and people had to switch! There was so much drama between the teams! The roadblock was ew ew ew but I loved the naval navigation! <3 The two 'smartest' teams got lost (Ernie & Cindy and Laurence & Zac)! And the island scenery was gorgeous! After Liz & Marie still struggled at the Detour, yeah, you could see them getting last. However, after wrapping all this together, you call it one of the worst legs? I just don't follow your logic.

Pretty much every leg in Season 6 is bad enough for me. Sad to say since it was a highly-rated year and an early season in the series. But too much bunching, negative energy, and lack of respect took away from the sights themselves.  Leg 9? Pretty difficult to forget that one!

I would say the TAR 22 finale. Not only was the spy RB not as good as TAR 8, and it led to Maxie robbage, it was a horribly linear leg that basically rewarded luck and I hate those kinds of legs. :res:

This. I cannot stand finales with linear final )legs. I also don't like any leg that has some sort of ridiculous equalizer smack dab in the middle, unless some crazy circumstance like All-Stars or Season 21 happens (TARAU Final leg anyone?).

I also agree with Airlines. Maxie wasn't my favorite team, but they definitely grew on me (like Marie).

I can't believe nobody mentions TAR7 leg 7, Botswana 2

After an intense footrace the previous leg, with the brothers beating Ray and Deeana by seconds, they get eliminate the next leg because the leg is lineair and they have absolute no chance of catching up...only the first 3 teams out of 6 were close enought, but the placement of the last 3 didn't change because of the bad race planning

any leg from Season 22 i must say. That season is by far the worst TAR season i've ever watch. (i haven't watch TAR 1-3 and the family edition)
Boring cast. Boring task.
probably except for the pretty cool night leg in Germany. Who would've thought assembling a train track would be that hard? and i just love seeing Bates & Anthony the another boring alpha-male team struggle

I would also have to add any of the Indonesia legs from Tar 19 or 21.

any leg from Season 22 i must say. That season is by far the worst TAR season i've ever watch. (i haven't watch TAR 1-3 and the family edition)
Boring cast. Boring task.
probably except for the pretty cool night leg in Germany. Who would've thought assembling a train track would be that hard? and i just love seeing Bates & Anthony the another boring alpha-male team struggle
I didn't mind 22 (I liked the cast and the legs were OK)

For me 16 and 19 were both the worst both had some of the worst legs. (I can't choose between what poison tasted worst but I am not going to try them again to find out)

TAR16 Leg 5

First the moving pit stop which was err... okay...

And then the rest of the leg felt like it all occurred only in the battlefield - Speed Bump, Detour, and U-Turn were all located within the vicinity. And there wasn't a Roadblock either.... and I can't believe they submitted this one (out of all episodes) for the Emmys - and quite expectedly broke the Emmy winning streak. It was just terrible.

I think you could viably chuck in anything for Season 16. I remember most of the episodes being bad-awful except for a couple of exceptions (France II, Seychelles and maybe the first China leg).

Other bad ones I remember include Season 23 premiere (really poor and almost made me stop watching), Switzerland from 22, 21's premiere and second episode ( both really bad except for finding the lady with the abacus), S19 Ep 5 (Thailand II, although this was apparently done at the last minute as a backup leg), the Vietnam and Cambodia legs of S15, S11 premiere etc. Some of the late-game family edition legs weren't so great either.

On the other hand the best legs are: Season 2 finale, Season 3's Switzerland, Season 3 Vietnam, Season 5's Russia, Egypt and the Philippines, Season 6's Norway, Sweden and Xian, Season 12's Taiwan, Season 13's Russia, Season 14's China (all of them, particuarly the last one), S15 finale, Season 17's Russia and Oman, Season 18 China II, Season 20's Paraguay and finale as well as Season 21's France and finale.

I must say i like season 16 because i'm happy to see the cowboys didn't win it  :cmaslol
the best thing about season 16

but i agree with season 19. one of the most not memorable season for me. probably equal with season 22. but i like the cast in season 19 more

I actually really like TAR 21. Maybe it's because of the cast :kisses
i still don't understand the detour in Turkey though. One of them is basically a leisure and the bakery one is hard work. And i don't understand why would someone choose the bakery task  :cmaslol

Post UB:

TAR 19 Leg 2 (Indo 1), Leg 5 (Thailand 2), Leg 12 (Atlanta)
TAR 20.. every leg was decent I think.
TAR 21 Leg 1 (China), Leg 2 & 3 (Indo, painful!), Leg 8 (Russia 2 was so boring for me)
TAR 22.. same as TAR 20, oh maybe the DC leg, it's not interesting at all.
TAR 23. just the premiere, the rest was good enough.

TAR 17: Leg 5/Norway was really boring. There wasn't much action or drama.

TAR 18: Leg 2/Australia

TAR 19: This season's first half was a mess, idk. It picked up when they got out of Asia & I started loving some of the teams more and more.

TAR 20: This was probably my favorite season out of Post-UB. It was the complete package. The "worst" legs would probably have to be Leg 2/Argentina and Leg 7/Tanzania (even though that had the epic airport catfight  :cmaslol )

TAR 21: I would say the same as I said for TAR 19. First half was a mess, but everything was put together once Europe came.

TAR 22: This season had really good teams/legs but some bad legs. Leg 3/New Zealand was a major disappointment, and Leg 5/Vietnam sucked. The finale wasn't at its best either  :cmas15

TAR 23: Leg 1/Chile was probably the worst premiere ever. Leg 2/Chile was boring UNTIL the last 20-30 minutes or so. It became all suspenseful and everything! Overall this hasn't been too bad of a season and will probably join my Top 3 Favorite/Best seasons of Post-UB with 22 and 20.

TAR 14 in...well, lots of places. Germany had a Detour involving Austrian food and an American invention, Romania had fake gypsies and fake Dracula, India had a Detour where BEGGING ON THE STREET was the better option, Phuket had the convenient trip to a zoo known for their bouts of animal cruelty, and Beijing had a leg devoted to how awesome Michael Phelps was.

But the teams + editing made it x1000 better :lol:

TAR23's Leg 1 WAS A TRAINWRECK. :lol:

Now that we have TAR24, I would say Leg 1 is the most atrocious of the TAR leg designs ever. It was literally nothing but luck task, luck task, then Pit Stop. Not only did it screw a great team over, it gave a team who didn't deserve a victory a victory.

Almost every leg of TAR24 beat all the 'Worst' leg in this thread... Hell, I think even the train mania in TAR22 is far more entertaining than all the crap in this All Star.

China 1-2 : Horrible. Worst premire and second leg EVER
Malaysia 1-2 : Lame. Because of horrid flight. Both RB was so boring and Detour was just above average a bit.
Sri Lanka 1-2 : Sri Lanka 1 was boring but Sri Lanka 2 was the only watchable leg this season.
Italy 1-2 : Lame. Cheap. Pointless and reduntdant task. The U-Turn drama and Dave the B**** just make it more worse.
Swiss : Okay. But the Accidental Alliance just ruin the most part of it and turn it into some Bad Girl Club gossiping.
Spain : Detour was okay. Another watchable episode although not satisfy like Sri Lanka 2.
UK : Cheap. RB rule break. Urg.
LV : LAME. STUPID FINALE EVER. WTF IS THOSE FREAKING POINTLESS TASK? FAKE MAGIC? BULB SCREWING? WORST WINNER OF THE WORST SEASON EVER.  :gaah:
