Even that we know that TARA and TARAus had visited those places, but I think this will be the first time TAR:US visit those places and this will be the first time it'll be showed in US television. So, it'll be the first time viewers who never watch TARA and TARAus before see those location, tasks, etc.
That is very true!
The Amazing Race Australia season 2 also showcased Istanbul, in a better way then the Us. versions (just my opion).
I just hope that they feature Independence Commemoration Hall, in this leg. It was not in season 6.
I agree, even though the temple blessing and Trendy Connections (is this factory owned by production now?
) are repeats from international races, it is something fresh for the high-definition U.S. version for the not-so-avid audience. I think the last time we've ever had anything laundry related was TAR13 when teams had a Detour choice where they could iron clothes in Delhi, India.
I'm actually looking forward to the fishing Roadblock. I've never seen people balance on poles to gather seafood before so that will be something unique in my opinion.
Still not hoping much for classic, adventurous TAR music though. Too much circus-crazed music that it is literally a big, fat joke.
