I would like to see them go to Asia first, places like South Korea, Japan etc (No Indonesia please god, no more), then Europe, then swing down to Africa and some random countries in the area.

I'd love a first leg in South Korea, then Philippines (2 legs?), either of Mongolia/Kuwait/Sri Lanka/Kazakhstan/UAE/Singapore/Cambodia/Oman for a couple more legs in Asia. Then maybe a new European country like Latvia (2 legs maybe?), go on for Belgium and Iceland (2 legs again?). For the 11th leg they'd travel to Canada and end the race I-don't-care-where.

Maybe that's too much, but I find this a very interesting route :)  :conf:

On the LAX shooting.

Although TAR was not affected, Mad Men were filming in the American Airlines Terminal  and MythBusters were in the terminal that the incident occurred as they were catching a flight to Delaware

Source: http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/4195209

Production on "Mad Men" was suspended on Friday, Nov. 4 following the shooting at LAX, according to tweets from a crew member.

A rep for AMC confirmed "Mad Men" crew was shooting at the airport, but could not provide any other additional details. According to key grip Dustin Woods, "Mad Men" was filming at American Airlines, Terminal 4, and was told to move to the far end of the tunnel for safety following the shooting.

The tweets have since been deleted, but Woods said "Police K-9 unit going through AA arrival terminal right now. Should be getting the all clear shortly" and "We got the ok to leave but Police have not given the all clear."

Stars of Discovery's "MythBusters" were in LAX at the time of the shooting.

"'Mythbusters' Grant Imahara and Tory Belleci were present in Terminal 3 at Los Angeles International Airport at the time of today's shooting incident. Both were en route to Delaware for the filming of 'Punkin Chunkin'. Grant and Tory are safe and being rerouted. Our thoughts are with all those affected by today's tragedy and our gratitude goes out to the members of the LAPD, Airport Police, TSA, and Virgin America staff for restoring safety to the scene," Discovery said in a statement.

Now back on topic. For locations I think we will see East Asia (Korea, China),  Australia (most likely: Melbourne, Tasmania or Canberra), them I wouldn't be surprised if they use Marionete's theory of  Asia --> Europe (Latvia, Belgium and Iceland) -->Canada (my guess: French Canada, Montreal) --> US

Anybody think they'll re-introduce the 'hazard' penalty from S19? Would be interesting to see what would happen if used properly..

You either save a team with the Salvage Pass, or choose to receive the Express Pass. :ascared

But they'd choose the Express Pass every time. I would.

I have a lil' feeling that TAR will include all twists starting from TAR19, such as:
-2 roadblocks in 1 leg, wherein the one who did the 1st can't do the 2nd
-2 EPs, the 2nd one should be given away
-TBC
-Double Your Money
-Starting Line Task
-Hazard
-Double Elimination
-u-turns, ff, etc...

Might not happen, but... :res: After all, not all of those are great, like the DYM, since the team who wins it becomes a really big target.

Not necessary. Since it's an Allstars season and each team might have a pre-existing r/s with each other (Margie and Luke and Jaime and Cara etc), teams may choose to save their friends/team over an Express Pass. ???

I wonder if there might be a chance this would be a Switchback-type of season. Like having the course be made up of the most infamous legs in TAR history (but with a much harder difficulty)

:hearts:

Teams almost knowing what they will have to do later? No, please.

What's that?
I like the idea that they would use A LOT of twists, for example double elimination, hazard, 2 EPs (maybe a leg with 2 detours for the first time?), but not all of them, it would just be too much both for the teams and the viewers.

Well, I could only see that work in an AS season then.

Not necessarily either. A team like Tim and Marie would take the EP.

But a team like Gary and Mallory may use the Salvage Pass too. And maybe if they use the SP they get a trip instead, you know? :)

^ i personally think Yield is actually not as useful and effective, especially if it's compared with u-turn. so i'm not excited to see it

but an all-star season with intersection would be interesting  :cheer:
i actually love intersection. seeing teams that was supposed to be "enemies" working together is fun to watch
especially if both teams are funny  :yess:

but the task have to be interesting too, season 16 intersection was quite boring and pointless to be intersected with

A Hazard would be nice, even though it's basically a speed bump  :funny:

Also another blind double u-turn!

I'm hoping to see more eating task because food intrigued me
eating spicy soup from season 6 and 4 pounds of meat from season 7 would probably the hardest eating task in TAR so far
I'am now and forever post-love

By secret mission, do you mean something similar to a luck task?

As much as I want the yield (even if TAR turns it to blind, double, double, blind, etc...) and the intersection back, I don't think they'll be back soon. :pity I just hope they'll be back, esp. the yield, with an added twist of course. ;)

I would love to see an intersection fast forward, i think they did one in the previous all stars.. A switchback for season 7's food task would be fun especially for the teams competing.

I have been waiting so long for a Best of the Best season!!!! It would be the definition of epic. My teams would be

Rob and Brennan (S1)
Andy and Tommy (S19)
Jet and Cord (S16 and S18) (Dont Hate!!!)
Colin and Christie (S5)
BJ and Tyler (S9)
Brook and Clair (S17)
Nick and Starr (S13)
Rachel and Dave (S20)
Ken and Gerrard (S3)
Abbie and Ryan (S21)

And then 1 more team

This is a mix of the old and the new, and all of the above teams were the 'focus' of their season; They were the team others wanted to beat. Please CBS
Jet and Cord are still the best!!! Bring them back!
