This route isn't worthy of being All Stars to be honest. 4 double country legs in a row is just boring especially for the teams in my opinion.

This may be the post in the whole RFF in which I agree most.

Pretty sure it's not just in your opinion.

Same opinion here. If there were no Philippine disasters back during November, the 2 legs in Malaysia would still be 2 legs in the Philippines (correct me if I'm wrong). Not all-star at all. :groan:

Well, at least they would have been planned legs, not replacement. (Although I kinda liked Malaysia 2 and the rafting task saved Malaysia 1 lol)

With China, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and Italy having 2 legs each, and the last one reserved for the US, the last four countries would be visited within 3 legs.  :(

They could just place a cluebox within the Vatican and, presto, they visit another country.

Switchback to Season 1  :funny:? I don't think that will happen.

They actually planned on visiting the Vatican, in a switchback to a Season 1 Fast Forward. (And like the original, no one used it  :funny:)

Really? :ascared Wow, how'd you know?

In any case, they'll probably be visiting Africa (because CBS said they visited 4 continents), mostly likely Morocco through the Gibraltar, which means Spain too (And the UK?). For all we know, they miscounted the number of continents and countries they visited.  :res:

Four countries in eight episodes? :groan: I am really considering registering a Kickstarter for TAR and writing Bruckheimer a check for the sole purpose of visiting more countries with better, tougher tasks.

However, I'm not too anxious for this specific Leg as I researched Orvieto for a while. The historical, narrowly winding roads will be a navigable challenge, possibly even more so than TAR12 in Vinci when Kynt & Vyxsin flipped out about driving and their gas pedal/gear shift malfunction. There is also a strong possibility of a feature of Italy with their authentic wine countries.

Please read the spoilers. There is NO Africa, no 4 continents, and no Vatican as far as we know. Very sad.  :(

This route could have been much improved by adding in the Vatican, Malta, and Gibraltar /Morocco.

So it's gonna be like this, right?


Why would PHIL and CBS lie to us with the number of countries, continents and miles? It can only turn against them, it brings nothing positive. I dont belive they counted the countries wrong. It would be so amateurish and lame.

I still hope we will be heavily surprised, because there will be some exotic African country included. That would be the only thing to make TAR24's route 'the second worst after TAR8', not the worst at all.  :(

I think it was just a mistake, not a lie. Perhaps there were originally 4 continents, and somebody just goofed.

As far as we can figure, there is just NO time to add in an African stop...even a quickie from Seville.  But oh boy....I would do the happy dance if we are wrong on this one. This route is def NOT "AllStar's" worthy.

If so, I'm guessing they counted North America twice: North America (1), Asia (2), Europe (3), North America (4).  :res:
Countries? USA (1), China (2), Malaysia (3), Sri Lanka (4), Italy (5), Switzerland (6), Spain (7), United Kingdom ('8'), USA (9)  :res:
After putting 'Season 18' for a Joey & Meghan flashback, I wouldn't be surprised  :res: (I will hold that against them forever)
So teams just flew from Paris to get to Las Vegas? I'm still a bit lost  :(

I think with the 9 countries they might be considering Wales and England to be separate countries similar to how they did in Season 22 with Ireland and Scotland

They did it in TAR 22 with 10 countries being listed as visited with Scotland and Northern Ireland being counted as two different countries. As for the four continents thing, I think they are trying to justify the route saying they visited four continents

I agree with the Wales/England thing. I'm happy that they're going to Wales, but the route is still meh.  :groan:

I've heard this once before, but can someone tell me, where and when was this flashback shown? And what was it?

From the "for what it's worth" dept:  I was in the train station at Orvieto on Nov. 29 last year, and a local mentioned that TAR racers had just been through.  Not sure whether they were getting on or off the train.  Then, an hour or so later, I was in Civita di Bagnoregio, and got the same report.  From a distance, I thought I spotted a yellow/red clue box on the walkway up to the Civita.  By the time I got to the walkway, however, it had been removed.  Once I got into the Civita itself, there were a lot of people milling about and leaving, A/V equipment being broken down, and generally just more activity than the normal tourists.  Again, according to a local, TAR racers had just been there, re-creating a local donkey race in the town piazza.

:conf: Welcome to RFF, soladorou! :conf:

Thanks for sharing the info to all of us. So for now, we're expecting a train ride to Orvieto after the Leg in Rome. A Donkey Palio task will be featured according to a local. Great job!

Let's not forget the donkey detour task in TAR 3 in Mexico, which brought us one of the funniest TAR sequences ever.

My favorite one ever!  I still remember how the donkey reacted when Jen told Nate not to yell at it, presumably when it was beginning to slow down.  The donkey's extended hee-haw sounded so much like a laugh that I couldn't help but LOL!   :funny:
