i love Penultimate legs, who doesn't, being the last country to be visited before going home, determining who's in the final 3 and i think, this should be the most exciting and intense leg of the entire season considering most finale legs are disappointing
let's talk about which penultimate legs are very tough and memorable.
favorite penultimate leg is leg 11 of season 6, Xi'an China, amazing roadblock, Taxi Drama, Breakdowns and Language Barriers, it was also a long leg too, aside of that, i also love the penultimates of season 12,13,14,15, and 23. here are my thoughts about several penultimate legs
TAR6: WONDERFUL and LONG and STRESSFUL and DRAMATIC CHINA LEG
TAR7: it was an NEL. but still nobody wants to have zero money during the final leg. and i thinkg the tasks are very good. the team that came in last are put in a serious disadvantage
TAR9: actually i really love this JAPAN leg, the detour in the night time, and fujikyu highland roadblock. and having to ride a swan in lake yamanaka was clever
TAR10: i don't like this, it really made the first half of the leg completely useless. it was just based on the detour. Dustin and Kandice was leading and their lead stopped because everyone will be on the same flight to Barcelona
TAR11: this is not a very bad leg however i think this was the worst leg of TAR 11. TAR 11 really set the bar high
TAR 12: OMG the tasks are just so simple, but i don't know how this leg could be much more dramatic than most harder legs. Nate and Jen Breakdown was just stellar. TK and Rachel overtaking two teams after completing speedbump was incredible. and this leg finished at NIGHT
TAR 13: one of the most complicated roadblock and detours i've ever seen. what a shame Dallas lost his passport and NOT BEING CALLED BACK FOR BOTH TAR UB AND TAR 24
TAR 14: why are Chinese penultimate legs are very good. i seriously wanted to have it in season 25. no one expects that the pitstop was just a midpoint, They raced from 9 in the evening until 10 in the morning, Jamie and cara even finished racing at 2 in the afternoon. and also the peeing-before-pitstop moment was just a star
TAR 15: good leg, one of the best. scary scenery though.
TAR 16: i love it. first, because it's in China, seconde The foot race are very dramatic. Third, the ending was at night. i love seeing Shanghai in nighttime
TAR 17: a not very outstanding leg from a very good season, because Vicky and Nick were too far behind. what a shame
TAR 18 : don't really like it, i don't know why
TAR 19 : kinda OK leg. don't expect that Andy and Tommy missed it
TAR 20 : i don't understand how most people here like this leg. it's just catching a chicken and eat sushi and taking a photo. like seriously, very disappointing. the finale was better
TAR 21 : the only thing that i like was Natalie and Nadiya taking a wrong way to the pitstop. The challenges was just MEH
TAR 22 : i actually liked this more than 21. the detour was kinda tricky. and seeing Jennifer panicking in the mud field
TAR 23 : much better than season 20, just a little bit disappointment at the detour. the fishbowl was very easy. i wished the message was longer. but the roadblock really scrambled the placement of the teams.
favorite penultimate countries are: Japan, China, and czech Republic
I would like to see a penultimate in Philippines, Switzerland, Indonesia, a country in Africa, Argentina, and Iceland
