It's very interesting.

I remember both TARPH and TARA really did good things to hype up their surprise returns (s2 for TARPH, s5 for TARA) before even beginning to accept applications. Like, "Get ready!" promos on the shows' accounts and on the TV5 and AXN social media accounts. Then of course continuing to promo during the open applications/audition period.

So with that "Adventure Travel Competition" casting call, has it even been shared anywhere else outside of even here on RFF? Or announced anywhere else other than the tvblackbox blog?
Especially since Ten hasn't made an official announcement yet either, most Australians and Kiwis probably don't even know this "Adventure Travel Competition" exists, let alone it being TAR.

Are they hoping to fully produce the season before announcing it? Or seeing what kind of cast they might get before officially greenlighting it? Very strange!  :duno:

"advertised" was a poor word choice. Discussed would have been better.  The APP is  being widely discussed.

No. Only on social media discussions. No official confirmation for now,

I have no idea who that is, but I think he'll be a welcome change of host.

You could sense the vibe through Season 3 that Grant was getting tired of this job.

Interesting, another former Pro-Athlete, like we have with Jon over the Canada side.

Beau Ryan sure wouldn't be my pick of a host, I think he's going to struggle to come off as serious enough for it considering he's widely known for being a larrikin.

Interesting choice of host!

I don't mind Beau, but he does have a bit of controversy behind him, but that shouldn't really affect viewers ratings!

And we are offically confirmed as being back!  :conf:

If they keep up the production values and toughness and don't mess around with the schedule as they did before it will hopefully keep popular.

Apparently that's just the way Australian TV is, I've heard. Shows tend to start whenever.

Hoping it does well on the new network. Season 3 was good, but the ratings took a nosedive as the season went on.

How do you know, tar fan?

I really hope there will be more "normal" teams than gimmick and celebrity ones at least.

And they better not stop tradition of casting overweight team(s) in this franchise, lol.

There's rumours circling around on Facebook that participants on this season have been contacted, however, we will wait for Peach to confirm this information!  :tup:

Unconfirmed -- but agree that casting MAY be done...or nearly so. Last minute changes are ALWAYS possible.

We're not supposed to post the dates of starting lines before they actually went on, Peach told us.

Thanks everyone!

Reminder: For the safety of our TAR crew and racers...we choose to never publicly reveal in advance the location of WHERE teams will be WHEN.

This was a WHEN alone....but just in case the WHERE appears also we're going to pull this for now.

So...those of you saw this...please do NOT repost elsewhere. Keeping our beloved TAR safe is paramount.

We'll let you know when it is about to start.
