I don't get the people who say it was so amazing... IMO, there was nothing special. It was pretty middle of the road... the tasks, the location, the cast... I mean, somebody said that last season's was pretty unmemorable, but the sky diving in Bora Bora was spectacular! One of the most scenic premieres in the history of the show.
This one was like... okay so I guess the paragliding with the dunes and the ocean is kinda nice... the rowing task was just ok, decent in the sense that some teams could make a mistake by the wording of the clue, but not exciting for a premiere... the teams were just ok, the Afghanimals are pretty annoying, thought I would like Tim/Marie but they had no real spark yet, I usually like the F/F teams, but these are pretty generic. WAY too many M/M teams. but I guess Chester/Ephraim are kinda nice, as are the Oklahoma boys. I THINK I might root for Jason/Amy, but I really dont know. Nobody really stood out for me...they were all just sort of there, or annoying.
I don't know, I was like very underwhelmed for my favorite tv show... hopefully it picks up and the cast begins to deliver.
Edited because I forgot to mention about the new intro, also I don't get why so many people hate it. I really like it, and the new music is great as well. Love the new instruments.
Also, forgot about this. i really felt for Naina. She seemed really excited for this and the only thing she did was ride in a cab. The design of the double roadblock was crappy, because she didn't do any real task.
