I think it's only the last 2 seasons' 1st legs that are bringing us an awful premiere.
Back then I was really excited seeing 12 or 11 teams racing around the 1st leg. I think TAR should make TAR25's 1st leg with:
- A classic format, like when teams finish a task and they get a departure time for the next leg. At least the 1st team eliminated gets to race for more than a day.
- They should have the 1st leg in Africa. I think only TAR1 did this.
- Honestly imo, I wanna see all 12 or 11 teams racing the 2nd leg, but this one depends on budget.
- More exciting tasks on the 1st leg? I think that's not hard for TAR to do.
I definitely missed out some things here.
I think I should post this on "Changes Viewers Want to See" thread, but this is specifically talking about the 1st leg.
