A little unfortunate that nobody of the non-TAR teams has yet won a leg. Instead, those teams are dropping like flies :(

Chris & Bret and Nicole & Victor are the only ones left to do it. They've come close a few times.

Chris & Bret are gone next episode and it's spoiled Vicole never won a leg, so it's not happening.

That Tyler and Korey returning to race for a 2nd time is not surprising. The part with Colin and Christie returning 26 seasons later, now that's the real surprise.

Tyler and Korey seem quite sociable and the new Colin is a nice guy, so I am not surprised that they are good friends. Also, the fact that Tyler and Korey received 0 votes is a testament to their social game.
Tyler & Korey are friends with others too, because Korey & Nicole bonded a lot due to the Michigan connection, and spent several hours in the airport getting to know each other while the Team Fun/Reilly sisters/Afghanimal U-Turn conversation was going on. And Nicole also mentioned how Tyler & Korey would constantly be willing to help other teams when needed, which also could've played a large part in why they've avoided being targets despite being one of the strongest teams remaining.

Yeah. Vicole, I forgot about that :P

I didn't think it was happening next week since that boating thing Colin & Christie are doing in the preview looks suspiciously like a Fast Forward. Which would probably mean they get 1st.

The rafting task is more likely a Detour or ARI task due to multiple teams shown attempting it in both previews.

With that said, I'm at peace knowing that all leg wins go to TAR teams if it means the Survivor meatheads and Ratcole plus boytoy both go home empty-handed.

Am I the only one who is disgusted with Chris & Bret's reason to U-turn Rachel & Elissa?  :groan:
I was up until I heard Chris go into greater detail about their reasons for doing so. Apparently, he & Bret didn't want to U-Turn any of the TAR teams, because he knew that C&C and Leo & Jamal would've been capable of getting that U-Turn done in no time, and thus put the two of them at more of a disadvantage. So when deciding between the remaining two non TAR teams, that was when the social management of the others came into play, since when push came to shove, Team Bromance decided to help out the people that actually took the time to get to know and talk with them over two people that seemingly had no interest in socializing with just about everyone on the race.

I think that's one big difference between TAR teams and BB or Survivor teams, TAR teams aren't terribly concerned about the social aspect of the game where the others had to figure that out on their respective shows.  You would think that having been on BB the Reilly sisters would understand that tems coming from the other shows would think about the social game.  Even if it wasn't a live vote, the choice of who to u-turn often has an aspect of likeability to it. 

Honestly, I'm just happy the Reilly sisters are gone and really hope this is the last we see of them.  The faces they make and the attitudes (more so Rachel) annoy me.  It's so immature and reeks of a sense of entitlement.

Can Phil stop saying...
"Team X will be the FIRST to leave COUNTRY..."
Because that's never true considering all teams get on the same flight or not even on the first flight, you know?

I believe they only started using that this season and it's really bad, tbh.

I liked it when Phil said "[Insert team] came 1st in the previous leg at [Insert time the 1st place team checked in], and will now depart for the next leg at [Insert 12-hour time gap from the time the team checked in]" at the beginning of each leg. It was so much better, and kept the Race more organized in a way.

Absolutely!
Introduce the 1st place team as they open the clue and then introduce the next destination later on with a "Teams will now fly from [place] to [destination]."

I miss what Phil used say before it, which was to introduce the visited location at the beginning and the Pit Stop, for example: "This is Amsterdam, the capital city of the Netherlands. Located in ..., this city .... And in the middle of the city, the .... This is the n-th Pit Stop in a race around the world." And then followed by the "[TEAM] who came 1st at ..."

I hope they bring it back in future seasons, because it makes the audience know better about the country and location they visited.

I very much enjoyed the smirky Becca in the airport this week. So if she goes Bitchy Becca next week, then I might just start rooting for them to grab the runner up spot. (After my default #1 team Colin & Christie of course, since the Reillys are gone lol)

It was much better that way.  I've found myself tuning out the way he's doing it this season.

I was hoping the U-turn vote would be last U-turn of the season, but alas, we are getting another double next week. Just not a fan. Would rather the results be purely on racing ability, such as last night's with airport shuffle and detour-switching shenanigans.

It didn't deliver at all in TAR21, so I am surprised they are bringing it back again. My theory is that production is just lazy to come with something new...

Somehow I'm not surprised they failed at the social game part, because that was never Rachel's strength on BB, since she mainly won because none of the other newbies thought to get out the obvious competition threat when they had the chance.

That's nice to hear. This vindicates my support for Tyler and Korey (and this season overall vindicates my support for Colin and Christie after all these years.)

I am torn between seeing Tyler and Korey win 5 in a row and Colin and Christie matching Tyler and Korey's 9 career race wins. (It's honestly a race between those two teams now.) So long as Afghanimals don't finish first.  :lol:

Anyway, based on the spoilers we have, it is now confirmed that Colin and Christie will finish the remaining legs all in the top 4, making it 23 in a row for them.
