I would love to see TAR head to another island group like the Seychelles, maybe Cape Verde. I would also like to see them in Luxembourg for a switchback and maybe Finland or the Baltics.

Luxembourg has never been visited before so I have no idea what switchback you are referring too. Seychelles has already been visited.

As for contestants, I'd say this won't be an All-Stars (but I have a huge list of who I want to return)

This season will definitely visit a new country. Slovakia, Slovenia, Laos, Nepal, Latvia, Central America, and maybe to an extent some Caribbean Islands (Bahamas, D.R., Barbados, etc.) are the most likely candidates. I think we'll see a revisit to China or India, but hopefully not both. I also think this season will not visit Indonesia (unless WRP just wants to make us mad  :funny:). Australia and the Philippines are also a possibility. I think Africa might be skipped over again, but if they do go there somewhere besides the typical southern African safaris would be nice (how about Gambia, Ethiopia, or Morocco?).

I don't think Liechtenstein will be visited, but I'm just curious: could they have an entire leg in Liechtenstein, or is it so small that they'd run out of possible challenges?

They should also make any All-Stars or returning Racers season harder than the usual TAR.  Harder tasks, trickier clues, etc.

What was confirmed was Returning Racers. The name of the season is not yet confirmed here. :)

Maybe it's not an All Stars, maybe it's Redemption, bad luck teams? Not Unfinished business.

Wow, I think it is way too soon to have a returnee season, and feels like desperation. And if this season finishes lower than TAR23 in the ratings, could it be the final season for TAR?

With only 5 seasons to work with, there is no way that one of them will be left out. Unless BVM thinks one of them was very unique, to a point of bringing back more than half of the teams from that season.

The Amazing Race: Redemption! That would sound good.

I just can't see them getting a good cast without going beyond S18

RFF never confirms ANY racing team until they are safely underway. It puts that team at risk, and we choose to not endanger racers.
What do you mean at risk?

It means that production might view the team as a liability to secrecy and choose to replace them with another team; in effect disqualifying them from the race.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

..and this is not fair on teams, especially if a team had/has a fanbase.

So I'm going to sort of speculate on the route!

I can see Ocenia being visited for 2 legs. They could go to Fiji for the first leg which would be great and then on to either Australia or New Zealand

For Australia I'd say we won't see a leg in Sydney or New South Wales in general with the fires going on there at the moment. I could see Adelaide being visited as well as Hobart.

If they go to New Zealand I'd say we may get a leg in Wellington and possibly a leg in South Canterbury with a task possibly related to the filming of the Lord of the Rings.

Fiji sounds amazing  :hrt: I would definitely like to see USA --> Iceland --> Ireland (Dublin) --> Denmark --> Azerbaijan --> Gabon --> Oman/Dubai --> India (x2) --> Nepal --> Russia (Siberia) --> Japan --> Australia --> Fiji --> USA

This is too many legs but I like a lot of the countries

I have a feeling TAR will visit a lot of our major visiting countries such as India, Russia & China.

I'd be fine with either India or China for one leg each but not 2 legs in each. That was one of my main issues with UB, Too much Asia. 5 legs was too many in my opinion and most the racers had been to both countries already so it was kind of over saturation of Asia for them in my opinion. This season needs to go to Africa, South America, Oceania, Asia and Europe in my opinion. With this sort of season you'd expect to have a very long and varied route.

Starting Line at Yerba Buena Island in front of the new Bay Bridge in San Francisco Bay.  Or Alcatraz (Shutdown over, it's back open! lol)
Swim (!) or row to shore to jump into an all-new Ford Escape waiting along The Embarcadero to drive to SFO.

Two choices to fly to first destination: Manila, Philippines
1: Direct Philippine Airlines Flight from SFO to Manila
2: Connect through either Los Angeles or Vancouver for Philippine Airlines to Manila
Flights arrive within 30 mins to an hour apart in the Philippines.

Please.  :yess:
(Hehe, just ignore me, I just need to get my mind off of the supposed list of teams otherwise I might just get upset again lol)
