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:

As the update of TAR25 and 26, I nominate Japan 1 from 26. :lol:

Like seriously, that leg was such a big mess. Super short premier with ONLY one task in Japan for 90 minutes episode. :stare  This leg made 22.08 Switzerland an amazing leg!

TAR 24  :  Every single leg except Spain -  Terrible season with nothing good, all the teams were mediocre and the race design suffered badly
Except Spain! :lol: Someone's with me! :hearts:

24-12 was in my opinion the worst season finale. No opportunity for the order to change, a task that was just show and not really even a task, and no memory challenge (though I will give them credit, this was probably due to the rumoured scrapped legs in Philippines and Australia). Caroline & Jen said the race was already won at the last cluebox.

A lot of the tasks in that season felt cheap, especially in the second half (...shaving balloons?), and I jokingly like to think it's because TPTB blew their budget on David Copperfield  :funny:

That's true. I think the most interesting task was digging for the box in the desert at night. It was both physical and luck-based, which I liked. I disliked the Copperfield task since I don't like cheap magic. The bone yard was a HUGE missed opportunity for me. They could have had a needle-in-a-haystack task that spanned the entire boneyard, not just retrieving a light bulb. Counting the light-bulbs was just disappointing as you could just recite every number to get the clue without penalty. And ending not just the episode but the season on a thrill task was really really disappointing.

Some of the bad leg i remember, Most of them are related to mid-leg long distance travel

TAR 16 Leg 5 (Very few amount of tasks, no way for the u-turned team to catch up)
TAR 17 Leg 5
TAR 19 Leg 5 (Ridculous pit-stop treatment)
TAR 19 Leg 9 (I don't know why they have to place the train-ride equalizer in the middle of the leg)
TAR 20 Leg 2
TAR 20 Leg 7 (totally unfair for Nary & Jamie)
TAR 21 Leg 2 (lame roadblock)
TAR 21 Leg 9 (Too easy FF)
TAR 22 Leg 3 (Not culturally related at all)
TAR 22 Leg 8 (The whole episode are train rides)
TAR 22 Leg 12 (Linear Finale)
TAR 23 Leg 12 (Luck-based finale)
TAR 24 Leg 1 (Super lame tasks)
TAR 24 Leg 3 (bad treatment for the flights)
TAR 24 Leg 12 (Silly task + Silly arrangement for the 2nd roadblock)
TAR 26 Leg 1 (90-mins episode for only one task in Tokyo?)

Yeah, I still feel sad for them. Unfair, cruel... They should come again for an All Stars/Unfinished Business and give them a second chance.

TAR 24 finale. Worst winners, awful tasks, no memory challenge, almost impossible to change positions...

The 21-9 FF wasn't easy at all. The Twinnies had to try three times to get it done.

26-1 definitely has the worst design in regards to broadcasting. 90 minutes to show a Detour - and it's straight-up finding a sake bottle vs. repetitive dancing? :groan: Unfortunately, watching the challenges was more of a task than the Detour.

Though I felt bad for them, Libby & CJ's transportation fiasco saved that leg.

Agreed, the whole leg was basically Starting Line task, Detour, find the Pit Stop. Not worth 90 minutes.

That was just so they could piggyback some extra viewers off the season premiere of the more popular Survivor.

TAR27: :cmaslol
Leg 9: Lazy Speedbump design.
Leg 11: An almost-Andy-&-Tommy moment. My bad generalizing.

Leg 11 was an amazing leg and probably the best in that season?!

TAR AU 1, TAR AU 2 90 minutes premiere were far better, with some route info tasks in Indonesia and Philippines

TAR27's 1st leg was focused on Justin & Diana's fast forward fiasco. The editing itself made the episode the worst of the season.
