Title: TAR Wishlist - locations, routes, twists, teams, tasks & dreams!**NO SPOILERS**
Post by: Zack. on April 11, 2008, 02:56:10 PM
As the title says, what do you want to see in future editions of TAR?   :jam:

- Per georgiapeach, route maps and other large images should not be posted in-thread; a link to the image file should be fine, as well as this site (http://www.travellerspoint.com/).
- It should go without saying but this is a spoiler-free thread. If you're thinking of posting something that specifically refers to a currently-airing or currently-filming (be it the American version or any from another country) season DON'T. You should instead use the relevant spoiler thread(s).

Well I'd like them to visit*
*    Indonesia (I've been there a number of times and it really is no more dangerous than many other                 places they've visited)
*    Antarctica - so the race can finally say it has visited EVERY continent
*    Eastern Russia (siberia) - the whole north of asia has never been visited and some of the views are breathtaking
*    Greenland (if they don't go to antarctica, it wouldn't be a good idea to visit them in the same season)

Usually the race head south or west from america, except for season 10 which headed east to china. I would like to see the first leg head north to Canada and then head east to siberia in the next.

As for the taxi following issue, they should ban it. Its fine to ask for directions, or even get a local 'guide' but all the taxi following does make for a boring show.

I would love the race to go to Indonesia! I would also like to see Cambodia or Southern Thailand (Phuket or places around there)

We need less teams from California, and less dating couples

I'd gauge locations based on those I've read about since I was a kid...

The race has done cities well, but completely in agreeance on Antarctica & Indonesia!

Peru - They've missed all the epic locations: Machu Picchu, Nazca Lines, Lake Titicaca...
The Amazon
Kenya
Greek Islands
Jerusalem & Jordan - I know it isn't 100% safe, but nowhere in the world is...
The Silk Route
Southwest China
Nepal
Easter Island

Hey, that's enough adventure for an entire season!

Places I would love to see are Prague - Southeastern Asia - Indonisia - Adelaid - Island Locations (Barbados for example).

Locations - How about places that none of the TAR editions (ours, Asia, etc.) have not visited. There are thousands of beautiful places around the world that could be visited. Thousands of socio-economic sob stories that could be explored. I am very tired of India. Phuket, again? TARA seems to allows be there and now TAR. Australia is simply gorgeous and I would love to visit but Papua/New Guinia is right there. (Although, I think TAR has been there). More African (obscure) countries. Togo, anyone? South America. The freakin' Amazon?

Twists - Keep things simplistic as far as the race. Make the clues more difficult. No more make your way to Red Square and find the guy dressed like Breshnev. How about "Make your way to the area once covered in woodland buildings that an Ivan III edict changed into a major marketplace, then find the gentlemen dressed as the premier that served Russia at the same time as Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, Carter and Reagan." Make it a much more thoughtful race where locals can provide more than pointing to a place.

Teams - My brother and I  :lol: :lol:

Antarctica would be a good place, even if they didn't really do anything there they should still take them out there.

I'd be happy with the teams going to antarctica to perform a roadblock, then heading back out to south america or australia for the rest of the leg (bunched or otherwise)

Post by: Coutzy on January 16, 2009, 09:20:28 AM
A couple of new twists I want to see.

The first I call the 'shuffle'

In this twist (which I already know the fans will hate) all the teams are randomly reassigned until the end of the leg.

The team that arrives last at the end of this leg is eliminated, along with their partners, regardless of their finish. This makes the leg a double elimination.

After the eliminations, teams return to normal.

The second twist I want to see is a rule that stops teams checking in without their possessions (I don't know why but this irritates me.)

The new rule would state that a team may only leave a Pit Stop with the items they brought in to it, so if a team really wants to leave their bags behind to go the little bit faster, they must deal with the consequences.

Of course, their items would be returned to them upon completion of the race.

I've often wondered if, sometimes, the "Additional Information" in the clue says, "You may leave your belongings in the marked car."

Post by: Coutzy on January 16, 2009, 09:36:32 AM
More likely the clue says "You must leave your belongings in the car otherwise the camera can't get proper shots of you running and that will just ruin the show."

Hate the first as much as I hate the Intersection, love the second. And yes, clues do sometimes say you can leave your packs...but sometimes they are taking a risk dropping them in the run for the finish line...

Johnathan: Just drop it!
Victoria: But they're going to take it!!!! JOOOOHHHNNNNNN!!!! :'(

As for a new type of route marker: Traffic Light!
In this route marker one team can force another to stop at a traffic light. The team that stops at the Traffic Light has to open one of three clues. Inside each envelope is one of the following.
Red.- Turn over an Hourglass (Yield)
Yellow.- Perform an additional task (Speedbump)
Green.- Go directly to the Pit Stop (Fast Forward)

it can be used both with good or bad intentions with probabilities of backfiring.

I like that idea.

It allows alliances to actually work, although at the same time backfire.

It would also be the first time a team could directly help another team.

Post by: apskip on January 18, 2009, 02:10:03 PM
That's a good one, cdfe88. I had no knowledge about Jarvis Island. Technically it would qualify as a tiny spec of the U.S. on the equator. However, it would impossible to land any airplanes on it because it is uninhabited and it would take too long to being Amazing Racers and produciton in from another island like Samoa that looks on my map to be pover 500 miles away.
Here is a dscription of Jarivs Island for those as ignorant as I was:

Jarvis Island (also formerly known as Bunker Island) is an uninhabited 4.5 square kilometer coral island located in the South Pacific Ocean at 0°22′S 160°01′W Coordinates: 0°22′S 160°01′W about halfway between Hawaii and the Cook Islands. It is an unincorporated territory of the United States administered by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service of the United States Department of the Interior as part of the National Wildlife Refuge system. Unlike most coral atolls, the lagoon on Jarvis is wholly dry.

there's also Baker and Howland Islands, and from what I read, Baker could be a possible place to finish

cdfe88, Howland Island is a remote possibilty. That is because "There are no harbors or docks. The reefs may pose a hazard. There is one boat landing area along the middle of the sandy beach on the west coast together with a crumbling day beacon." Of course, its claim to fame is as the island Amelia Earhart was desperately searching for on her ill-fated circumnavigation flight of 1937.

Baker Island is an uninhabited coral atoll. It is theroetically possible to do something there, the probability is too low to worry about. Ending on/near the equator in U.S. territory has never been and is unlikely to ever be a priority of World Race Productions.

Europe:
Denmark (how is possible they haven't been there yet)
Belgium (same as Denmark)
Czech Republic (same as Denmark and Belgium)
Latvia
Estonia (Old town of Tallinn is amazing)
Monaco
Luxemburg
Bulgaria (maybe they go here next season as they're going now to neighbor Romania)
Madrid, Spain
Northern parts of Norway, Sweden and Finland (also Lapland, lots of extreme stuff to do)
Albania
Slovenia
Serbia
Montenegro
Bosnia-Herzegovina
Cyprus
Greek islands
I don't think they're going to Belarus because it's not safe place for American tourists with expensive cameras to run around stupidly. Same thing with Moldova.

Asia:
Yerevan, Armenia
Baku, Azerbaijan
Bahrain
Bangladesh (if they want to go to India in future thay can go here as it's almost same)
Brunei
Indonesia (Bali anyone?)
Israel (Tel Aviv and Eilat are safe)
Jordan (Ancient city of Petra is near Eilat, Israel; could be combined)
Kyrgyzstan
Maldives
Nepal
Qatar
Turkey (They were in Istanbul but Turkey has beautiful Mediterranean coast)
Uzbekistan (Samarkand was important city along the Silk Route)

Americas:
All the little island nations in the Caribbean (except Jamaica nad Puerto Rico and they probably can't go to Cuba)
Belize
Manaus, Brazil in the Amazonas
Guyana
French Guyana

Oceania:
Fiji
Papua New Guinea
French Polynesia (e.g. Tahiti)
Micronesia
Palau
Tonga
Northern Mariana Islands, USA
Nauru

Africa:
Algeria
Ghana
Kenya
Seychelles
Togo
Benin
Cape Verde
Mali
I think those are the safest countries TAR haven't visited yet

North Korea wouldn't be a difficult place for multiple eliminations... By Joab's logic, that should make the show very successful...

Armed or Unarmed
In this Detour, teams must work to disable one of two potentially dangerous weapons. In Armed, teams must disarm a nuclear missile, using the help of technical plans written in Korean. In Unarmed, teams engage in hand-to-hand combat with a border guard trained in Taekwondo, who will hand teams the next clue after he has been subdued.

Disabling a nuclear missile requires little physical strength, but the countdown time is limited and translating the Korean instructions could be confusing. Engaging a border guard is physically draining, but teams who complete it quickly can find themselves... flooring the competition. (Since Phil is starting to use Allan Wu's puns...)

I wish no team was actually eliminated, thats not asking too much is it? I'm such a dork! I DO care about these people  :'(

The show wouldn't be a success without elimination though. :duno:

Speaking of elimination - don't these racers ever take bathroom breaks? I thought this was reality TV - lets see some reality! :-[
Maybe the real reason Brad and Victoria missed their flight is because someone had to make a "pitstop" in the airport? I want to know if that's the case!
Sounds like the age old question about Jack Bauer in 24. Does Jack ever go to the bathroom? Does he ever eat? Does he ever drink? :lol:

That's an impressive list of places you have for AR15, Neobie. however, you can away it's lack of authenticity when you have Krakatoa on the list. It's part of an Indonesian national park, but nobody lives there for obvious reasons. If you take off Krakatoa and substitute something believable, then you have a viable race.

Do you plan on getting to Easter Island from Australia via the western route(shorter and quicker) or the eastern route?

Nah, Krakatoa's just a Pit Stop - planning to have most of the leg in Jakarta (shoe factories, Dutch schooners, spice trade...), then have teams take a bus to Merak for the Pit Stop on a boat. And I remember that LAN Sydney-Santiago flight that connects to Easter Island!

Oh God I'm so totally overthinking this.
Title: Re: TAR Wishlist - locations, routes, twists, teams, tasks & dreams!**NO SPOILERS**
Post by: apskip on March 03, 2009, 08:14:33 AM
Neobie,
You can get there either west to east or east to west, but your thoughts on using the former are the more logical. I haven't made any actual measurements but since we know that it's about 5000 miles from Santiago to Auckland and say 2500 miles from Santiago to Easter island.  From Sydney to Johannesburg is about 7000 miles, from Joahnnesburg to Buenos Aires is about 6000 miles and from Buenos Aires to Santiago is about 1000 miles. That is a total of approximately 17,000 miles going east to west. Going west to east it's one of those "you can't get there form here" exercises. Flying to Easter Island form Sydney requires either stopping in Santiago or stopping in Los Angeles. The good news is that it's less than 10,000 miles to do so, over 7000 miles less than the east to west route.

Just bringing this thread alive! :jumpy:

Would the Producers and BvM consider this for the next few seasons (even just a leg!)?  ;D  :hearts:

4 CONTINENTS, 9 COUNTRIES, MORE THAN 40,000 MILES

1 USA to Milan - Como/Brunate -Trieste, Italy (North Italy looks good!)

2 Trieste, Italy to Ljubljana - Bled, Slovenia (New Place!)

3 Bled, Slovenia to Thessaloniki, Greece (Greece is worth visiting again!)

4 Thessaloniki, Greece to Istanbul, Turkey (I know this has been done, but Istanbul's so big, I don't mind them having another leg there)

5 Istanbul, Turkey to Cesme - Selcuk - Sirince, Turkey (At first sight of Sirince in the net, I fell in love with the place! - I know many would too!)

6 Sirince, Turkey to Bangalore, India (India's a seasonal pilgrimage of TAR... so why not this place?)

7 Bangalore, India to Werribee-Melbourne Australia (One city I like to see visited by the Race!)

8 Werribee-Melbourne, Australia to Devonport - Launceston - Forth, Tasmania, Australia (The Island's already great just by looking at the net, what can I say more?)

9 Forth, Tasmania, Australia to Yogyakarta-Prambanan, Indonesia (Visiting Borobudur Temple or Lara Jonggrang in Candi would be such a sight!)

10 Yogyakarta-Prambanan, Indonesia to Ubud, Bali, Indonesia (Specifically the Elephant Caves and the Culture, Don't forget visiting the Bombing Memorial!)

11 Ubud, Bali Indonesia to Fukuoka - Kitakyushu - Okayama, Japan (Japan via Train! Woohoo!)

12 Return to the United States

Once TPTB decides to chill out about secrecy and allows teams to take public transport, here's one suggestion that allows for some strategy:

1. Impose a monetary quota for travel/reliance on taxis. This doesn't have to be shown to the audience.
"You have $200 for this leg of the race. Of this, you may spend no more than $50 on taxis."

2. Journeys that require taxi travel (for example, to out-of-the-way locations) does not count towards the quota. Again, this can be hidden from the audience.

3. Taxi travel/following thus acts as a Fast Forward. Taxis competing with buses competing with trains = lower costs + chances of natural bunching + local interaction + good TV.

4. Decisions to take public transport can be simplified through editing into "we don't have enough for taxis" or "we want to save money".



Speaking of secrecy, TPTB is way up their asses trying to avoid spoilers. At least four reports of rude production staff (Moscow, Bangkok-Phuket, Guilin, Beijing-Tokyo), fake task set-ups (Gypsy villages, Macau dragon boat associations), chasing the public and staff out of public areas, over-reliance on taxis... It's not like we can't dig up the spoilers anyway, OK? Disappointing. *angry thumbs down*

Post by: Hooky on April 02, 2009, 07:00:50 PM
Yeah, I agree. Authentic tasks are far better than ones made up just for the race. If people don't want the show spoiled, they don't have to read the spoilers. Even knowing the spoilers it is still fun to watch! :jam:
Title: Re: TAR Wishlist - locations, routes, twists, teams, tasks & dreams!**NO SPOILERS**
Post by: apskip on April 03, 2009, 11:06:49 AM
Neobie,

I see a much easier way to get the results you desire and me too. Simply edict that no teams may ever follow a taxi on foot or in their own vehicle or in some other type of vehicle. The other thing I desperately wish for is the end of all begging. Teams stock up on cash early in the race by begging and then can hire whatever they need later. This has distorted the race to give the beggars the edge. There should be no begging.
Title: Re: TAR Wishlist - locations, routes, twists, teams, tasks & dreams!**NO SPOILERS**
Post by: Coutzy on April 03, 2009, 12:10:47 PM
I think they could improve the race by putting a Fast Forward and a U-Turn/Yield on every leg of the race (except the first)

Then it might actually come down to a decision about when it would be most advantageous, as opposed to only getting one and therefore having this consideration taken away.

My biggest tip would have to be to use both Yields and U-Turns interchangeably, but have them both under the same "courtesy of" sticker (Get rid of the Blind U-Turn, it didn't do it for me)

I'd say that both had their own sticker like in TARA3, also IMO the Blind twist was good, think about it, most people were afraid to use theYield/U-Turn to avoid being targeted, this way it might be easier for it to be used.

For the Fast Forward I'd suggest to put the task right next to the cluebox but make it really hard. Since most of the time teams don't attempt the fast forward because they're all afraid someone else might have done it, the Fast Forward has turned into an undesirable task. Just make it easier for teams to know if it was already taken or not

The FAST FORWARD has become much less desirable than it was in the say first 10 seasons of the Amazing Race. The reason is that sometimes the tasks are onerous (tattoos, eating challenges) and the advantage gained has been drastically reduced.

Neobie,

I am not saying the FAST FORWARD isn't still desirable, just that it's less desirable. Intersected Uchenna/Joyce and Oswald/Danny won the 2 tower step count in Krakow for a gain of 64 minutes (not counting the 4 hour bus differential which preceded the FAST FORWARD). Oswald/Danny won only a 102 minute finish over Dustin/Kandice in Hong Kong after their Kai Tak airport stunt. Nicolas/Donald won 104 minutes over Nathan/Jennifer in Empoli. Ken/Tina for 136 over Terence/Sarah  for the Auckland Tower climb.Nick/Starr get only 86 minutes for their Kazakh feast. The two unused Fast Forwards that I can remember (Trakai Castle in Lithuania and in Phuket) have no relevance except that they underscore how teams are perceiving moer risk and less reward in going for a FAST FORWARD.

You bet and he wasn't Kenyan although Idi Amin Dada did spell a bit of time (I guess in exile) in Kenya. He is clearly Ugandan, so Ken needs to either substitute Kampala for Nairobi or find a suitable Kenyan dictator (I considered several but none has been bad enough to make this cut).

Yes, he was in Uganda, but, he was in exile in Kenya. Uganda is considered unsafe, Kenya is considered relatively safe which is why I chose it over Amin's native country.

Ok, maybe I should reconsider that safe part for Kenya. From the Department of State:

Quote
KENYA

November 14, 2008

The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to Kenya.  American citizens in Kenya and those considering travel to Kenya should evaluate their personal security situation in light of continuing threats from terrorism and the high rate of violent crime.  This replaces the Travel Warning of August 22, 2008, to note increased security concerns in northeast Kenya near the Somali border.

The U.S. Government continues to receive indications of potential terrorist threats aimed at American, Western, and Kenyan interests in Kenya.  Terrorist acts could include suicide operations, bombings, kidnappings, attacks on civil aviation, and attacks on maritime vessels in or near Kenyan ports.  Many of those responsible for the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in 1998 and on a hotel in Mombasa in 2002 remain at large and continue to operate in the region.  In November 2008, armed groups based in Somalia crossed into Kenya near the town of El Wak and kidnapped two Westerners.  Travel by U.S. Embassy personnel to border areas of Kenya northeast of the town of Wajir has been restricted until further notice.

Violent and sometimes fatal criminal attacks, including armed carjackings and home invasions/burglaries, can occur at any time and in any location, particularly in Nairobi.  As recently as June 2008, U.S. Embassy personnel were victims of carjackings.  In the short-term, the continued displacement of thousands of people by the recent civil unrest combined with endemic poverty and the availability of weapons could result in an increase in crime, both petty and violent.  Kenyan authorities have limited capacity to deter or investigate such acts or prosecute perpetrators.

American citizens in Kenya should be extremely vigilant, particularly in public places frequented by foreigners such as clubs, hotels, resorts, upscale shopping centers, restaurants, and places of worship.  Americans should also remain alert in residential areas, schools, and at outdoor recreational events, and should avoid demonstrations and large crowds.

Americans who travel to or reside in Kenya are encouraged to register through the State Department’s travel registration website, https://travelregistration.state.gov.  By registering, American citizens make it easier for the Embassy to contact them in case of emergency.  Americans without Internet access may register directly with the U.S. Embassy in Nairobi.  The U.S. Embassy is located on United Nations Avenue, Gigiri, Nairobi, Kenya; telephone (254) (20) 363-6000; fax (254) (20) 363-6410.  In the event of an after-hours emergency, the Embassy duty officer may be contacted at (254) (20) 363-6170.  The Embassy home page is http://kenya.usembassy.gov.

Updated information on travel and security in Kenya may be obtained from the Department of State by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll free in the United States and Canada, or for callers outside the United States and Canada, a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444.  For further information, please consult the Country Specific Information for Kenya and the Worldwide Caution, which are available on the Bureau of Consular Affairs Internet website at http://travel.state.gov.

I don't think Uganda is too terribly unsafe though. There ar ecertain areas which should be avoided but if the teams went through the countryside I don't think it'd be that bad. From Wikitravel:

Quote
Uganda has been home to some of the more gruesome atrocities in modern African history since its independence in 1962, particularly under the heinous dictator Idi Amin, but in the years since 1987 things have consistently improved. Today, in 2009, the single party state is relatively stable after 25 years of stereotypically 'strong man' rule by Yoweri Museveni. Kampala has changed into a major center of East African trade.

Travel north to Murchison Falls National Park and Ajai Game Reserve is perfectly safe. Note that overlanders from Tanzania and Kenya regularly make the trip routing through [[Jinja.

As in any urban area, Kampala can be dodgy. One is well advised to remain in tourist areas, but sensibly garbed visitors not dangling the latest cameras, flashy jewellery or bulging bags are not likely to draw unwanted attention to themselves. However, any Caucasians walking in the street stand out and are likely to be stared at openly, which may cause discomfort to those unaccustomed to travelling in Africa. What little begging exists is some of the most polite and inoffensive to be found in African cities. Small children are sadly becoming a nuisance in some rural spots frequented by tourists doling out sweets and coins, but nowhere near the swarming throng one can attract in many cities around the world.

In the gorilla tracking region of the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park near the border with the DRC there was one incident in the late 1990's in which bandits attacked a group of tourists and killed several people. Since then there have been no incidents and all groups now go out with armed guards (which was not the case before). There is a visible security presence in the region, but this is a preventative measure rather than a response to anything specific.

Dr. Rox, although Stalin was from Georgia, his focus was the entire Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The centerpoint of governement for the U.S. S.R. was clearly Moscow, its capital. Just because Volgograd was renamed in Stalin's honor (by Stalin himself in 1925) and was later renamed back to the original name does not mean that he had any special relationship to Volgograd. As best I can tell, he did not other than during the battle of Stalingrad where he as the leader of the Soviet military took a personal interest in Stalingrad's survival.

I have a gut feel that Kolkata's next in line again at the "TAR'S yearly pilgrimage to India"... I want them to go to Bangladesh though, or Guangzhou China or even Xiamen or Shanghai... though Thailand's overrated as well as Russia already...

Mooyou(thanks for the tip on m error),
The fact is that Kolkata has been used before. Sure, as a huge urban center in India the amazing Race could get stunning sights on camera. However, these huge Indian cities have never been on an amazing Race and deserve to before any other city repeats:

Bangalore
Hyderabad
Goa (a small state, not a large city)
Ahmadabad
Shimla (a tourist area formerly known as Simla, not urban)

Hi Apskip! It's me and not cdfe88 who thought of Kolkata ^_^

If were talking about India, I'm thinking of Amritsar, in Punjab the near Pakistan border and where the Sikhs are could actually be a good place...  :lol:

I hate it when all of those beautiful locations are barred because of wars, pandemic flu seasons, etc... Oh well... I guess there should be extra effort for TAR to find new locations as well as better tasks especially the next season...

hey what about Myanmar (Burma)?

there's a couple good locations, like Yangon and Mandalay

or is it considered an unsafe country by the U.S. department of whatever its called...?

i'd look it up myself, but i lost the link to the site that marks countries safe to travel to or not, and as you can tell i have no idea what that department is... is it the department of safety?

Myanmar is considered unsafe. In fact, the U.S. Department of State discourages all travel there.

I agree that the yield/u-turn should be on each leg as it was in the first few seasons.
If cost is an issue we can continue to have only 2 u-turns and the others to be yields
as they are inexpensive. When this is reintroduced I would like to suggest two other
twists that can also be interchangeable with the yield.

1. GIVE WAY - One team can choose to make another team behind them 'give-way.' This
means that team must let all other teams pass them before resuming the race. The catch
is that the team that uses it is marked for elimination (they must arrive first at the pitstop or
incur a 30 minute penalty). There is a huge amount of risk involved but if the team that uses
it can maintain a first place position throughout the leg, they will greatly slow down the team
of their choice.

2. NO RIGHT TURN - One team can choose the detour for any team behind them. This means
that when that team reaches the 'no right turn' marker which also has the detour clue box next
to it, must complete the detour that is chosen for them. The team that uses must try to chose the
detour they believe will be the hardest for the other team to complete.

Whats a race without a bit of risk. Anywhere

Quote from: http://wikitravel.org/en/Sudan
WARNING: Travel in Sudan outside Khartoum and its suburb Omdurman is considered dangerous. Two borderline civil wars continue to see violence, in Southern Sudan and particularly in Darfur, while extremist groups target foreign visitors for attacks and kidnapping, particularly in the Upper Nile regions targetting foreigners related to the oil industry. The U.S. State Department has renewed its annual travel advisory for Sudan, and continues to recommend against all non-essential travel to the country.

Montreal.......

I would like to see TAR use this wonderful city. Lots of cultural stuff there. It could  be the first leg after leaving LAX or could be the next to last leg, before ending in some city on the East Coast, besides NYC or Miami, for a change. TAR has used every single major city on the West Coast, except Los Angeles and San Diego for a finish line.

Boston, Philly, DC, or Atlanta (Peach at the Finish Line).

Prague would be nice too.

Dr. Rox, perhaps you missed Amazing Race 8. The penultimate city was Montreal, but teams only had time to search Expos stadium for plane tickets and then get to the airport for a charter flight early morning to Toronto. I agree that Montreal makes a good place for an Amazing Race stop, but so would Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Regina and Halifax. I expect we will see other Canadian cities before we see Montreal again.

My attempt at a new CBS-friendly race:

Start City: Atlanta, Georgia
Leg 1: to Gibraltar (I always though this could be done like TARA, where the Detour is in Start City, then there's a RB/Pit Stop in Gibraltar)
Leg 2: to Leplis Magna, Libya
Leg 3: to Innsbruck, Austria to Vaduz, Liechtenstein
Leg 4: to Cape Town, South Africa (and for added fun, don't tell them where to fly from. Liechtenstein had no airports but train service to Zurich, Vienna, Milan, Munich and other cities in that region)
Leg 5: still in Cape Town, South Africa (making up for the lack of Africa in most races)
Leg 6: to Victoria, Seychelles
Leg 7: to Ahmedabad, India (either with a TBC in Mumbai or transit through Mumbai)
Leg 8: to Kuala Belait, Brunei
Leg 9: to Sydney, Australia (I can't believe we've had only one half leg in Sydney)
Leg 10: to Nadi, Fiji
Finish city: St. Louis, Missouri (Midwest <3)

Inspired by Joab in the hope of an epic Singapore leg. Sucksters claim it's impossible, but we could try! (Oh since we're bored anyway.)

Detour: Food in Mouth or Foot in Mouth

Really, if there's anything that makes Singapore unique, it's that it can cobble together so many different ethnicities and cultures and have everyone actually get along... This Detour is a testament to the state's (relative) success.

I demand that any Singapore leg be run entirely on public transport.

Food in Mouth
Travel by public transport to three different locations and finish a serving of local food:

Progress from relatively easy to the tourist-killer... Teams get the next instructions after finishing at each location.

"Sambal Belacan" at Kampung Glam
  Shrimp paste with rice
  Influence: Malay
"Fish Head Curry" (written in Tamil, geez I have no idea!) at Little India
  Indian spices and the weirdness of eating a fish's head
  Influence: S Indian
"榴槤" at Geylang
  Durian, well we all know this one
  Influence: SE Asian in general, but the Geylang shops are Chinese

Foot in Mouth
Travel by public transport to three different locations using audio messages on a cell phone:

Locals may not listen in on the phone, so teams would have to convey the message orally. Problem is, teams must find someone of the correct race/ethnicity to be able to translate the message, and that's if they can pronounce it correctly. Cue absolute communication breakdown.

"Rumah Baba di Jalan Neil" (Baba House on Neil St)
  Peranakan terrace-house, built 1860s
  Language: Peranakan Malay
"Oo Chia Zui Thien Hock Keng" (Temple of Heavenly Happiness in Chinatown)
  Oldest Hokkien temple in Singapore, built 1821
  Language: Hokkien Chinese
"Boon Keng Wadda Gurdwara" (Central Sikh Temple in Boon Keng)
  Oldest Sikh temple in Singapore, built 1912
  Language: Punjabi

My Roadblock is a cruel poke at the Government, but that's for another day.

possible cast (not necessarily my wishlist):

1. young dating couple
2. young dating couple take 2  fit middle-aged F/F team (a la Bowling Moms)
3. fighting couple (married or dating)
4. older dating couple (grandparents?)
5. homosexual couple (haven't seen one of those in a while) (male or female)
6. siblings (very popular in recent seasons)
7. siblings part 2 (twins please...)
8. parent/child (also very popular in recent races)
9. other possible family relationships (i.e. cousins, grandparent/child, aunt or uncle/niece or nephew)
10. best friends
11. best friends II
12. co-workers (love that they had one in the Israeli version)

i really hope that my guess for number 9 isn't cousins, since i want to use the absence of a cousin team since Charla/Mirna to my advantage  when I apply with my cousin (unfortunately, we have to wait a couple years before we are able to apply....)

My wishlist for teams:

1. F/F - 20's
2. M/F - Alpha couple in their 20's
3. M/F - Couple, mid-aged
4. F/F - 30's or 40's, possibly lesbian, doesn't matter.
5. M/M - Brothers, haven't seen a good bro team since Brian/Greg in TAR7.
6. M/F - Father/daughter team, but not one having issues like Ron & Christina. End result was good, but it was tiresome to see dad beat up on daughter.

Go from there.

My Wishlist for TAR 15 Teams:

1. A Lesbian Mom/Daughter (We had a gay Father/Son, why not this one? This would rock!)
2. A Step parent and step child - similar to TARI
3. Grandmother/Grandson/daughter team...
4. M/M brothers, I have to agree with TARAsia Fan
5. Another Asian team!
- The two "whole Asian" teams (12, 14) rocked so much, I wonder what makes Asian women stay in the race longer? Could it be because of the stereotyping or the tradition and culture imposed?
6. A sibling team with ages of 40 and above
7. Another set of Married Parents, loveable ones like Teri and Ian and Kentina
8. Travel Agents or Owners of Travel Agencies...! That would be epic!
9. RFF Forumers... Who doesn't?
10. An engaged team of the third sex...
11. Doctors ^_^

Teams with stories to tell (at most one per season please, we're not going for contrived!):

Cousins - One a first-generation US immigrant, the other someone from back home.
City mouse shows country mouse the values of an American, while country mouse reminds city mouse of his heritage. Also, culture shock within a team. (Hell, that's my one shot at making the race. Call me CBS!)

Siblings - One born to the parents, another adopted.
Pair learns to accept each other's differences, and understand that they're not too different after all.

Friends - Have been friends online for years, but have hardly met in person. 21st century equivalent of pen-pals.
Little lies come back to haunt the relationship, as the duo realize that coming clean to each other is the best way to move forward.

I thought of another thing just like Yield and U-Turn(A NEW TWIST)

Well I havn't named it yet,so you guys can help me figure it out!

So it's just like a Yield and U-Turn on how you use it,
it is right after a Roadblock, and if your (name of this thing)ed,
the person that didn't do the Roadblock, have to do it.
SO IT'S MAKES BOTH TEAMMATES TO DO THE ROADBLOCK!

I don't think that will work with Roadblocked because the number of roadblocker per team member is restricted at half (6 for each in the case of a 12 leg race.) So if we have an extra roadblock and both players have completed all roadblocks by the final roadblock, do they have to forfeit?

Probably they would have to take a 4 hour penalty for not completing the Roadblock. It would stink to be on the receiving end of that game special!

12. Zach (let's be honest. Without Flo, he would have won by days.)

Great list. I think online friends would be a darn good one!

I want the Races to be some form of "Back To Basics". No useless twists. Back to many Fast Forwards. 13 legs. Just at least once. I mean, I know I'm hosting a future race with ORG teams, ORG legs & ORG twists (Roundabout, Fork In The Road, Roadblock Setting, Traffic Light, Block U-Turn, etc. - all w/ permission from the original hosts, of course :D), but that's just for ORGs. For TV Races, I want something simple. I miss the glorious TAR 1/TAR 2/TAR 3/TAR 4/TAR 5 (sans Yield & lack of FFs) days.

I'd have to disagree. I'd rather have less teams and more NELs in order to get to know them better. What's the point of having that many teams if most of them will be forgotten once the real drama appears?

I want to see an Amazing Race with zero NELs. That would make a fine race, where every leg counts for sure and most teams have to be competing hard end to end. I discount the "getting-to-know" value of NELs, cdfe88. All NELs in Amazing Races (but not Amazing Race Asias) are positioned at or after the 6th leg, so you already know all remining teams well by then!

In conjunction with this I want to see 13 teams so there will be 11 legs or maybe 1 or 2 more teams and an equivalent number of extra legs.

Exactly right! That's what has happened to teams like Anthony & Stephanie and Marianna & Julia in the recent seasons with poor editing balance.

I think there should be 11 or 12 teams, but the non-elims should be early in the race, so we get to the the early boot teams, too.

And of course, at least 12 legs! Are you listening, CBS? :waves:

11 or 12 teams is always good. I can't remember less than 11 besides the Family Edition but maybe it was in the All-Stars season too.

And CBS better be listening but I know they're prepping for BB11.   :jumpy:

I highly doubt Nigeria will not be visited this season or next season!  Nigeria has alot of problems right now and travel there is highly not recommended by the US State Dept, speaking of the State Dept, I think travel to Colombia is possible despite the travel warnings.  Colombia is an US ally and travel is only dangerous if you venture outside the safe major cities like Bogota and Medellin.  I think the State Dept travel warnings haven't been updated in a while.  Also the fears about Swine Flu affecting the filming of TAR15 is highly impossible, as long as the teams, crew, and other people involved in the race follow health guidelines like washing their hands and sanitizing them, infection from Swine Flu is very unlikely to happen.  My only wishlist for this season or next season is to visit newer countries and former countries, but newer areas within them like Sardinia in Italy, the Greek island of Crete, Wales/N. Ireland in the UK, Hainan/Wuhan in China. Even Lake Baikal in Siberia as well as Vladivostok in the Russian Far East.  Also for teams I like to see a multiracial team (dating, married, best friends), as well as Native American, and Motorheads/Skatepunks.  A new twist that could be cool if they introduce a new task choice like "Rewind" where a team has to return the beginning of the leg and do all the tasks again before continuing on.  That would be cool to see as the opposite of "Fastforward" At least I am happy to hear about TAR16 has been given to go ahead.

Sorry, if you have been watching/reading the news, Zimbabwe still has some problems with their newly elected-government right now.  I also don't expect to see the race visit Congo (formerly Zaire), Angola, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Somalia, Cote d'Ivoire, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Chad, Central African Republic, Burundi, Sudan, and Eritrea!  These places still have problems such as civil war, government disputes, and corruption right now so we could still see the race visit countries like Algeria, Libya, Djibouti, Seychelles, Comoros, Swaziland, Lesotho, Gabon, Eqtl. Guinea, Cameroon, Malawi, Rwanda, Sao Tome, Niger, Mali, Ghana, Benin, Togo, Gambia, Cape Verde, Mauritania, Congo-Brazzaville, and Uganda.  These places are a bit friendlier despite smaller disputes, but travel to these countries is safe. Kenya, South Africa, Egypt, Morocco, and Tanzania I like to see more of, plus Kenya isn't on the news much anymore since their government elections a while ago, which led to violence in Nairobi metro area, but we haven't heard much about it since then.

Wow. Make a geographic statement and it gets big attention. I guess that shows how little else is going on right now. I did not forget Tanzania except in data entry. It was on the list I prepared, but in alphabetizing I inexplicably did not bring it into my post.

Madagacar and Mauritius are islands in the Indian Ocean and as such do not qualify in my view as being part of the African continent. My definition of African continent stops at Mozambique and does not extend eastward. However, my view appears to be not shared by many, as they include Mauritius and Madagascar as African countries. Let's root for future Amazing Races in Seychelles, Reunion and the Comoros Island(which is one that has mostly excaped my notice in the past but comes up on some African nations lists) to boost the African nations count.

Also, some people would count the airport stop that AR5 teams had in Nairobi as evidence that Kenya was part of teh race. I do not count it.

Here is my dream for TAR15 (It must be golden):
Leg1: Dallas, Texas – Asuncion, Paraguay (The start of the race is on a very large farm)
Leg2: Mombasa, Kenya (Safari!)
Leg3: Cairo, Egypt (They’ve been here before, but I rather see Egypt again than India, Thailand, and China)
Leg4: Copenhagen, Denmark (They never been here!)
Leg5: Prague, Czech Republic
Leg6: Vatican City, Rome
(Leg 4-6, they will not travel by airports but through trains)
Leg7: Jerusalem, Israel (With the clue saying: fly to the holy city! They need to figure out that Jerusalem is the holy city!)
Leg8: Damascus, Syria (They will travel to Israel to Syria not by airports or trains but by traveling to the deserts.)
Leg9: Kathmandu, Nepal (With the view of Mt. Everest but not actually going to the top of it!)
Leg10: Sydney, Australia
Leg11: Moresby, Papua New Guinea (Not on the capital city itself! But through its green jungles)
Leg12: Wewak, Papua New Guinea (Water race just like in El Nido, Palawan)
Leg13: Las Vegas, Nevada (The final pitstop is in the desert)

Leg1: 12-11
Leg2: 11-10
Leg3: 10-9
Leg4: 9-8, Fast Forward, Yield
Leg5: 8-8, Fast Forward, Non-Elimination Point
Leg6: 8-7, Speed Bump, U-Turn
Leg7: 7-6
Leg8: 6-6, Fast Forward, U-Turn, Non-Elimination Point
Leg9: 6-5, Speed Bump
Leg10: 5-4, Fast Forward, Yield
Leg11: 4-3
Leg12: 3-2
Leg13: 2

Notes:
1. There are 4 fast forwards and the team can use it twice in the race, however, u turn and yields can only use once in the race. (I don’t care whether you hate the u turn and yields, but for me personally, it gives spice in the race!)
2. Legs 1-3 and Legs 11-13 have no twist at all because I believe that putting twists in the first legs and last legs is the biggest mistake that the creator did on the show. By not putting any twists in Legs 1-3 and Legs 11-13 will give justice to the strong racers. (Ex. The only reason Eric and Danielle won TAR11, is because of the luck given by putting twists in the last legs. In TAR11, there are 2 non-elimination points in the last leg which is unfair giving injustice to Dustin and Kandace, Charla and Mirna, and the alpha male gay team).
3. However, on Leg 12 will give a justifiable twist in the race by eliminating the last team. Meaning, there will only be 2 teams in the final leg (Leg 13) of the race. The reason for that is I end up watching 2 racers who battle head to head in the last leg than the 3rd team who just gives additional editing time. With the final 2 in the last leg, there will be no more Bama’s, or Eric and Danielle (who just got the 1st place finish because of the gossip challenge), or even Kelly and Jamie (who just got the 2nd place finish because of the deaf guy helping them).
4. The last episode will be 1 ½ hours in order to show Leg 12 and Leg 13 making it a total of 12 episodes.
5. And lastly, I hate China, India, and Thailand (no more on these 3 countries), they need not to travel on any of these countries anymore after another 10 more seasons of the race.

How about a Beatles challenge (I know they had the Abbey Road clue in S7), like a whole task dedicated to the Fab4 like

Detour: The Long and Winding Road or The Magical Mystery Tour

In The Long and Winding Road, teams make their way by foot through the streets of London in order to find 10 things marked with a race flag, referencing songs from the Beatles. All things are located apart from each other, but they are pretty noticeable and teams are free to visit them in the order they want and. Teams are provided only with a list of 10 songs.

In The Magical Mystery Tour, teams board a special double-decker bus that will follow a pre-determined circuit, passing by 5 objects teams have to take a picture of. Again, these will be related to Beatles songs. However, they will be pretty hard to spot and if teams fail to find the 5 objects, they'll have to repeat the circuit again.

3. However, on Leg 12 will give a justifiable twist in the race by eliminating the last team. Meaning, there will only be 2 teams in the final leg (Leg 13) of the race. The reason for that is I end up watching 2 racers who battle head to head in the last leg than the 3rd team who just gives additional editing time. With the final 2 in the last leg, there will be no more Bama’s, or Eric and Danielle (who just got the 1st place finish because of the gossip challenge), or even Kelly and Jamie (who just got the 2nd place finish because of the deaf guy helping them).
4. The last episode will be 1 ½ hours in order to show Leg 12 and Leg 13 making it a total of 12 episodes.
5. And lastly, I hate China, India, and Thailand (no more on these 3 countries), they need not to travel on any of these countries anymore after another 10 more seasons of the race.

Hey Masterly. :D Great route! :D Although I enjoy the drama the India/Thailand/China legs bring, I do think that only one of India/Thailand/China should show up per Race, if at all. The two-team finale thing sounds intriguing, but it would've eliminated Tyler/James or Rob/Kim in TAR 10 (former arrived last of the Final 3 in Spain; latter finished the last task in Paris and if there was an elim point in the middle of the finale - start with a mid-leg elim, end with a mid-leg elim thing - I do think Bama would've beaten 'em) and Charla/Mirna in TAR 11 (they arrived last in Guam and even though they had a lead in Hawaii, they were the last to finish the last Hawaii task). Plus, Margie/Luke got help with that task too, so I don't think it was that unfair.

How about a Beatles challenge (I know they had the Abbey Road clue in S7), like a whole task dedicated to the Fab4 like

In The Magical Mystery Tour, teams board a special double-decker bus that will follow a pre-determined circuit, passing by 5 objects teams have to take a picture of. Again, these will be related to Beatles songs. However, they will be pretty hard to spot and if teams fail to find the 5 objects, they'll have to repeat the circuit again.

This is so plausible! <333 the task!

It' much appreciated!! I would love to see the race visit Nova Scotia - the city of Halifax has some great sites - Citadel hill would make a great road block, pier 21 for a pit stop, the bar scene  :jam: could be used as part of a detour.... Just my thoughts!!!

I'd love it if there was a trick to the final clue like:

GO TO THE FINISH LINE...........(somewhere)!GO GO GO! THIS IS IT!
And then when the F3 arrive at the 'finish line' and they realize it'a pit stop,
then, either two things can happen:
1.One team is eliminated, so that leaves 2 teams to battle it off, what I'd like to call RECKLESS COMBAT...no,i'm just joking that's a stupid name...anyway...

2.It's a non-elimination leg and the next leg is acually the final leg...and that one team that arrives last has to do a timely spped bump during the final leg.

So in either cases, on the way checking at the 'finish line' the teams might pay the driver $ to make him kill some red lights or go over the speed limit, or give all thier energy for the 'final' sprint...so they might end up with some disadvantages the next leg,so unlike the current races, team won't be racing with a filled fanny pack, and smoothly going through every payment

SECOND TWist: a SPLIT DECISION
In a certain point of the race, there will be a TBC leg, and for the first pasrt of the leg, teams have to make a choice
Example: SPLIT DECISION:Go to one of the following destinations: La Paz, Mexico. or La Paz,Bolivia(Los Angeles, USA,or Los Angeles, Chile etc.) And for the frist leg they have to do the tasks at the city they choose, for the second part of the leg teams gather up in one city and check in at the pit stop. Also, every city up for selection has it's pros and cons

Locations:
Saipan
Bali(Denparsar),Malaysia
NO MORE INDIA CHINA THAILAND
Vladvostok(Some people wanted Siberia...)
Vancouver

Teams:
Celebrities!(Thinking of Janice Dickinson on the race makes me....)
Kids and teens! Like me~!
People that know every single person on the race
People that never watched the show
Random people pickin off the street, asked "Would you like to travel around the world for free?"
Tell 11 pairs of 2 that their on a tour, event ect. and put them on the race without them knowing it until they see phil(sorta like Survivor6..I think...

Notes:
1. There are 4 fast forwards and the team can use it twice in the race, however, u turn and yields can only use once in the race. (I don’t care whether you hate the u turn and yields, but for me personally, it gives spice in the race!)
2. Legs 1-3 and Legs 11-13 have no twist at all because I believe that putting twists in the first legs and last legs is the biggest mistake that the creator did on the show. By not putting any twists in Legs 1-3 and Legs 11-13 will give justice to the strong racers. (Ex. The only reason Eric and Danielle won TAR11, is because of the luck given by putting twists in the last legs. In TAR11, there are 2 non-elimination points in the last leg which is unfair giving injustice to Dustin and Kandace, Charla and Mirna, and the alpha male gay team).
3. However, on Leg 12 will give a justifiable twist in the race by eliminating the last team. Meaning, there will only be 2 teams in the final leg (Leg 13) of the race. The reason for that is I end up watching 2 racers who battle head to head in the last leg than the 3rd team who just gives additional editing time. With the final 2 in the last leg, there will be no more Bama’s, or Eric and Danielle (who just got the 1st place finish because of the gossip challenge), or even Kelly and Jamie (who just got the 2nd place finish because of the deaf guy helping them).
4. The last episode will be 1 ½ hours in order to show Leg 12 and Leg 13 making it a total of 12 episodes.

Plus, Margie/Luke got help with that task too, so I don't think it was that unfair.

Unfair? I was the first one to help Jaime + Cara at the roadblock. There's no rules written where it says that a team isn't allowed to help other team. Originally, Jaime + Cara and my Mom + I had a thought of working together at the final roadblock if we arrive there before Victor + Tammy does. We didn't want them to win the race  :duno:

Here is one... you know those midway thingy like in last season, why not the last team to arrive have a penalty.... I was thinking maybe marked for elimination but a speed bump would be fine. That would certainly make the race more interesting...

It would certainly give the last-placed team more initiative to fight, knowing that even if they finished last and the leg was a "TBC", it would still put them at a significant disadvantage...knowing that at the next part of the leg, they would have to complete the speed bump task plus the second detour/roadblock.

so with TAR 15 filming way past done and getting ready to air, and with TAR 16 gearing up to film later this Fall (October/November, i can't really remember which month), should we start looking at other new possible locations?

One obvious place to look is in Eastern Europe.

it seems they've used at least one "Eastern European" country in every season since season 5.
this does exclude TAR 13 (Kazakhstan came closest to new Eastern Europe, but is in fact, in Central Asia), and to some extent TAR 7 (although Istanbul is in Europe, Turkey is part of Asia Minor)

so here's my list of possible countries (most to least likely IMO):
Bulgaria
Slovenia
Latvia
Montenegro
Serbia
Slovakia
Azerbaijan*
Uzbekistan**
Cyprus*
Macedonia
Bosnia
Albania
Belarus
Armenia*
Georgia*
Tajikstan**
Turkmenistan**
Moldova
Kyrgyzstan**

* goes along with Turkey in the Asia Minor "Europe"
** goes along with Kazakhstan in Central Asian "Europe"

David Junior, a small geography lesson is in order:

The Republic of Turkey is a Eurasian country that stretches across the Anatolian peninsula in western Asia and Thrace (Rumelia) in the Balkan region of southeastern Europe.... Separating Anatolia and Thrace are the Sea of Marmara and the Turkish Straits (the Bosporus and the Dardanelles), which are commonly reckoned to delineate the boundary between Europe and Asia.

I have been to Istanbul, which is European on the west bank of the Bosporus and Asian on the east bank in the same city!

If you look on the website Israel was added August 14, 2009 which was when TAR 15 was fliming. They probably planned the route months ago so maybe they didn't want to waste money going to another country

i just don't want any cousin teams on the race until TAR 18 (maybe 19 if applications close for 18 before February 2011...)  ;)

So let me start with my own wishlist for TAR16 or future seasons..

I like the concept of the switchback roadblock that's why I'd like to see more. Roadblocks I had in mind--

1. TAR6 Key/lock finding task in Xian, China (one of the best & toughest)

2. TAR7 meat-eating task in Argentina (look at all those who quitted)

3. TAR Asia 1- Leg 3 in Bali. The digging roadblock for that small surfboard replica (Yes, it's from a different TAR version but it's good enough to borrow)

I also would revive the Intersection task, One would involve 5 teams working together (TAR6 viking boat task) and another would involve 2 teams to work together (TAR 10&11)


For the cast--

1. An Athete African-American all-female team (ala Venus & Serena Williams)
2. A pair of smart Asian girls
3. A socialites/privileged all-female team (ala Paris & Nicole)
4. A male/female twin team
5. A father/daughter team-- about time been MIA since Season 12
6. Firemen team / Athletic bodybulding granddads
7. An all-male team of unknown DJs/rappers/breakdancers
8. Nerdy couple (ala Dave & Lori)
9. A Successful Reality TV couple (I'm looking at Erik & Jamie from Survivor China)
10. A transgendered woman & boyfriend/fiance
11. A May-December team (older woman & younger man) team
12. An interracial couple (black guy/white woman)

Alternative team: Hot Lesbian Couple

For the Starting Line twist, the First team to finish the surprise task/challenge gets to pick a team that would be eliminated from the race!


 Now this excites me!

I started thus thread to see if anyone has any ideas for a new TAR twist. I thought of the one-way street. It comes before a detour, and you can use it to force one team to do one side of the detour.

I don't know if we really need any new twists, but if anything, I would like to see a one-time pass given to teams at the starting line that allows them to change the Roadblock participant, but with the catch that before the second team member starts, they must wait out a time penalty (30 minutes or an hour) and that all progress their teammate made in completing the Roadblock is lost and the second person must completely start over from the beginning of the task. Other than that, I also like the idea a few people have mentioned of the Roundabout.

It's kinda funny to read back this thread all the way from the beginning and seeing which predictions have come true. :)

Countries/Cities they HAVE to visit

*Indonesia (Its so huge and they keep missing it  :groan:)
*Amazon Rain Forest
*Luxembourg
*Tasmania
*Some Oceania Islands (Polynesia)
*Canada (more please?)
*Denmark (you keep going to Scandinavia and pass right over it)

Some New twists/updated twists

*More Fast Forwards (its turned into "Ooh a Fast Forward!" instead of "should we use it later or now?"
*Bring back the Yield!! (Look above ^)
*More U-Turns (maybe a 2 reg,2 blind, and 2 double?)
* A task that could earn an express pass, more money, or another COP photo?

Just some suggestions :)

Indonesia gets passed over for safety and security reasons, I think. As for Tasmania, to put it bluntly, there's nothing there. Unless you want to have teams driving from one end of the state to the other to reach things to do, there's not enough there (especially in the winter) to put together a whole leg.

Yeah but TARAsia visits it :(
We can only hope

The only threat is in the Sulawesis (which is that island thing off of Borneo) where there is religion conflicts and stuff)
but Jakarta is safe!

and I see lots of things to do in Tasmania! centered around Hobart and Port Author  

Edit: Another reason for the US to not visit is you must have a 6 month validation on your passport and an onward/return ticket http://www.flightstats.com/go/TravelPlanning/consularInformationSheet.do?countryCode=ID&issuingCountryCode=US

Which they could do that if they gave them tickets to their next destination or somethin

OR they can buy a 10 day visa thing (which is like 100$) and they can be in and out in no time :) especially if its an uber leg :)

I'm looking forward to a "TAR: Bat**** Insane Edition"!

Flo/Zach
Colin/Christie
Charla/Mirna
Adam/Rebecca
Jonathan/Victoria (enough narcissism/insanity for two teams, easily)
Lake/Michelle
Lisa/Joni
David/Mary
Mark/Michael
Daniel/Jordan
Carol/Brandy
Nick/Vicki

Now THAT would be entertaining. I think most episodes would sound somewhere along the lines of a Linkin Park track (doesn't matter which one since they're all the same, obviously).

I wonder if they would ever consider adding a second leg in the US, back in the race. Not every season, but every now and then. Either in the beginning, go from LA to somewhere in the US (kind of like the first leg of TARA 3 that stayed within Thailand), or in the second from the last leg (like in the first 2 seasons).

But I'm guessing it's a little too Family Edition-ish to the producers.

All I want is 9 foreign countries each season. Of them 3 should be new countries (I would love to see some N. American/Caribbean countries), and 3-4 should be countries that have been not so recently visited but def. have lots of culture (e.g. Ecuador, Greece, Egypt after the revolutions die down, even Italy).

Also, no more China.

Leg 3: Copenhagen, Denmark
Leg 4: Riga, Latvia
Leg 5: Goa, India
Leg 6: Chiang Mai, Thailand
Leg 7: rural Chiang Mai Province
Leg 8: Okinawa, Japan
Leg 9: Palau (task at Jellyfish Lake)
Leg 10: Vancouver, BC, Canada
Leg 11: Vancouver, BC
Leg 12: Salt Lake City, Utah

The 19th Season is only a few months away from filming and right now they are scouting for possible destinations.  This is not a "Wish List," this is for predictions/ideas on the course for TAR19.  So don't add things like Antarctica, pit stop at my house, and so on; okay!!

To start this off, here is my predictions for the route:
-They should start in places where they haven't been to before like Minneapolis, Houston, or Atlanta
-Helsinki since TAR10 should be a good start and it should have a Pit Stop
-Denmark has been ignored for the past 18 seasons and we need it
-Lisbon, Portugal since TAR3
-Gabon near the Equator in Africa
-I don't mind another couple of stops in India like Hyderabad and Triviandrum
-A revisit to Vietnam and especially Central Vietnam like Da Nang and the former DMZ area
-Kuching on the island of Borneo in Malaysia
-Fiji after 18 seasons we haven't seen a new country in Oceania yet
-Vancouver, BC the olympics just happened over a year ago and two legs are plausible here
-Finish like in the Mountain or Central time zone cities

I hate the fact that,being a summer season, they may completely skip South America, so I guess we're not watching SA for a while. And there are still so many places to go (Uyuni salt pit in Bolivia, Amazon, Venezuela, Glaciers in southern Chile[they were so close in TAR11 and blew it  :groan: ]), but they keep going to repeated or lame places there, I just can´t understand it.

I think we need a really good dosis of Spain (let's be honest, they just did a Barcelona detour and a long drive with the dieselgate, nothing more), please Denmark (completely ignored, god knows why) and the Easter Islands (one of the few international landmarks remaining unvisited).

PLEASE no more India or China for a while or my brains will explode(unless they go to Tibet or something extremely remote)

The race planners really hate Balkan area, they've only visited in Romania and Croatia in that area. I really want more visits there, it's amazingly beautiful everywhere in that area - mountains of Bulgaria, coast of Montenegro, Plitvice lakes in Croatia, Skocjan caves in Slovenia, Ohrid lake region in Macedonia, still isolated Albania, northern Romania... And of course they should visit in Denmark, Belgium, Luxembourg and Latvia. It's really amazing how they have avoided Denmark and Belgium, it really is. And more Spain!!!

And no more visits in China, India and Russia. Only seasons 3, 8 and 15 have avoided these countries... well, 8 and 15 suck but 3 is amazing season so that proves you don't need those 3 countries to make a good season  :snicker:

Leg 2 (Canada to Iceland) route marker at the Hallgrimskirkja Church in Reykjavik
Leg 3 (Iceland to Denmark) First time visit to the country Denmark and the city of Copenhagen
Leg 4 (Denmark) Jutland Peninsula and Legoland
Leg 5 (Denmark to Germany) the cities of Cologne, Bonn, and Dusseldorf
Leg 6 (Germany to Malawi) First time visit to Malawi and Lake Malawi
Leg 7 (Malawi to India) Kochi, Kerala and India's southermost mainland point Cape Comorin
Leg 8 (India to Brunei) First time visit to Brunei
Leg 9 (Brunei to Malaysia) Kuching, Sarawak
Leg 10 (Malaysia) Rural outskirts of Kuching and the nearby National Parks
Leg 11 (Malaysia to Fiji) First time visit to Fiji
Leg 12 (Fiji to Hawaii, USA to Washington, USA) Intermediate stop in Hawaii especially Molokai and finish line in the Seattle metro area

Post by: jnsars4zjtar18 on April 28, 2011, 09:05:25 AM
Since we are near to the TAR 18 finale, What if there is another Unfinished Business with another set of teams?

They are:

1. Brook & Claire (2nd place - S17) = Z & J
    Reason for Unfinished Business: Unable to beat Nat & Kat in the final leg of their season.
    Attributes: Funny but very competitive team that almost made them win their season.

2. Steve & Allie (6th place - S16) = G & M
    Reason for Unfinished Business: Had bad luck on taxis in Malaysia.
    Attributes: Almost always on the front of the pack and their great support to each other is a plus.

3. Louie & Michael (4th place - S16) = FT & BE   
    Reason for Unfinished Business: Struggled to catch up in China.
    Attributes: Not only they have the physical strength but unlike FT & BE they have also tricks in their
                      sleeves. IMO

4. Azaria & Hendekea (6th place - S12) = K & J
    Reason for Unfinished Business: Eliminated due to the ticketing error in Lithuania
    Attributes: 3 wins in their season is a proof of their competitiveness and good racing skills
                      (if only luck is with them)

5. Andrew & Dan (3rd place - S13) = K & V
    Reason for Unfinished Business: Unfinished Business of suckiness!!! j/k LOL   
    Attributes: Very funny and great for entertainment & one of the luckiest teams to date.

6. Mark & Michael (5th place - S14) ≠ Jt & Cd
    Reason for Unfinished Business: Due to their time penalty, they struggled to catch up with the other
                                                        teams in China and inevitably eliminated.
    Attributes: Although not as good as the cowboys but they have the ability to stay on the
                      front of the pack.

7. Ken & Tina (2nd place - S13) = R & C
    Reason for Unfinished Business: Lost in Taxi Battle against Nick & Starr in the last leg   
    Attributes:Ken’s strength and Tina’s good PR skills to locals were almost made them win.

8. Toni & Dallas (4th place - S13) = M & L   
    Reason for Unfinished Business: Lost the fanny pack in Russia in the race for F3 in their season   
    Attributes:Their support to each other is great plus Dallas strength can contribute to their team (just
                     attach their fanny pack to their bodies and they’re fine)

9. Kelly & Christy (6th place - S13) = Jm & Cr   
    Reason for Unfinished Business: Struggled at the road block in India.
    Attributes: Their feistiness can bring entertainment and it adds to their competitive nature (although
                      their lack of detail may bring them doom)

10. Gary & Matt (5th place - S15) = M & M
      Reason for Unfinished Business: Struggled at their Speed Bump in Estonia thus did not catch up and
                                                          resulted to their elimination.
      Attributes: See Steve and Allie…

11. Lorena & Jason (S12) = A & C
      Reason for Unfinished Business: U-turned by another team that eliminate them (like Amanda & Kris)
      Attributes: They are competitive somewhat (their 1st place finish in Leg 1 is a proof) but not as
                        competitive as A&K (and also Lorena’s whiny attitude made them eliminated)

These teams are fairly competitive (if not as competitive as the ones who are currently running for Unfinished Business). But for me I see Brook & Claire winning this one with either two of these teams (Louie & Micheal, Azaria & Hendekea, Steve & Allie, Ken & Tina, or Toni & Dallas) in the F3. IMO

Who are your alternate teams for UB (aside to those currently running)? :-[  ;)

Azaria and Christina
Cord and Sarah
Dallas and Starr

Previous racers with new partners is also a good idea! Through this, we can now see their different side and how they deal with someone other than their previous partner. That would be exciting to watch!

I just remebered, aside from Claire, Brook auditioned with another partner right?

Locations : Indonesia! Duh, I live there! Who wouldn't love to see their country on TAR?!
And for the cities, if you want to bring up the worries in the teams, get Jakarta! The traffic here is so... annoying. It would be fun to see those teams worrying for their elimination just because of traffic, traffic, traffic!  :snicker:
If you want to focus on the cultural side, I'd say Jogjakarta or Papua. In Papua, they still have a lot friendly traditional tribes living in forests... Or for beautiful views, perhaps Bali, Batam Island, or Bunaken Island. Even though I don't really prefer on Bali; it's already on the spotlight of the world, so it's time for another cities to shine!  :hearts:

Twists : Here we go. My friends and me actually had a lot about it, and you guys even got the same ideas, but here's another few new ones:
PAUSE : Another prize for a leg winner just like Express Pass. Teams that win Pause may use it during a task, to "Pause" other teams that are currently doing the same task for 10 minutes. Pause will not affect any team that is already finished the task, or arrived after the Pause effect is announced.
DOUBLE NON-ELIMINATED TEAMS : In one leg, teams will be on Intersection for the whole leg to the PitStop. But the last 2-Intersected teams will not be eliminated, instead in the next leg, both teams have to do a SpeedBump. It would be fun to see both teams competing with eachother at SpeedBump.   :lol:
NARROW WAY : Opposite of Intersection : 2 teams will have to compete with eachother to finish faster. The winner may just depart after the task, but the loser will have to wait a predetermined time of penalty (let's say 10 or 15 minutes).

Teams : I think I don't prefer some kinds of relationships. I like their personalities better.  :lol:
For another Unfinished Business, including teams before Season 11, excluding Family Edition, I'd like to see all U-Turned teams  : Amanda & Kris (they even U-Turned at the very first task in this season!), Joe & Heidi, Carol & Brandy, Chad & Stephanie, Lorena & Jason... Plus some interesting-yet-unluckily/sadly-eliminated teams : Toni & Dallas, Maria & Tiffany, Mika & Canaan, Azaria & Hendekea, Eric & Lisa, Bilal & Sa'eed, Vipul & Arti. THAT season would be an Ultimate UB.  :lol3:

How about this new twist: the Choice U-Turn
The team who is U-Turned must complete the Detour again, but they can choose which side they want to do, which can include the side they just completed.

I have thought about a concept called a Limited Detour, where only a certain number of teams can do one side of the Detour and if a team wants to switch options, they must trade out with another team.
This is very similar to your idea. :tup:

Post by: mjriches2005 on May 19, 2011, 06:51:42 PM
I have some ideas:
1) a brand new task choice to the race like "Oneway" where one team chooses another team to do an extra additional task that will slow them down.  This is not the same as the U-Turn which involves the Detour, its more like an additional task.

2) have them visit places like Kalgoorlie in Western Australia, Easter Island, Boniare, Curacao, Sint-Maarten, Bermuda, and have the starting line like in Alaska or Hawaii.

3) like to see some new teamings: Uncle-Aunt/Niece-Nephew, Godparent/Godchild "in the US Version," multi-racial team "African-American/White" (not married/dating)

4) like to see some teams with new titles: Fishermen, Rock Musicians, Military Buddies, etc..

If they could go to Iceland, one of the most expensive countries in the world, Denmark is SO possible. I have been there multiple times, and there are so many wonderful locations. The pitstop could be a garden at one of the castles, or the little mermaid statue. Tasks could include things to do with vikings, lego (maybe build something out of lego at legoland) and there could also be some sort of boating challenge in Aarhus. There are many historical places to visit and so many things to do. Denmark would be perfect for a leg.

This leg would be pretty good for season 19, it includes some new countries and some visited ones too.

Leg 1: Chicago => Dublin (Ireland)
Leg 2: Dublin => Copenhagen (Denmark)
Leg 3: Copenhagen => Munich (Germany)
Leg 4: Munich => Johannesburg (SA)
Leg 5: Johannesburg (SA)
Leg 6: Johannesburg => Lagos (Nigeria)
Leg 7: Lagos => Kuwait City (Kuwait)
Leg 8: Kuwait City => Istanbul (Turkey)
Leg 9: Istanbul => Urumqi (China) => Ulan Baator (Mongolia)

Spain is overdue, and so is a Spain to Morocco leg as they did with the TAR3

I think that an entire race in Spain would be possible. I mean, there's plenty of different cultures in each region of the country, each leg could be completely different to the rest. I hope TAR visits Spain soon...

There's also some African countries that have somehow different cultures to the rest of Africa. Everyone says South Africa, but I think it's really typical (everyone think it could be, I'd prefer other ones).

NOPE

A German minister of Agriculture and things like that told that it came from Spain having made 0 researches. It has been proved that Spain is not the focus and that in Spain there is no one affected by it. We eat cucumbers and fresh vegetables as usual. Now we have a 200 milion € loss.
The German Government hasn't said they were wrong either (pride, maybe. they're country #1 in here) and Spanish Government, most of the times, just are passive and doing nothing.  :lol3:  That's how we do in Spain, but we do not have the E. coli thing.

TWIST: Bring back the Yield, and don't put any more fantarded versions of the U-Turn.

And with that, let me make my own fantarded Yield versions:

Money Yield - you need to pay to use this Yield
Surprise Yield - common sense, right?
Pause Yield - wait for the team you are yielding to arrive so that you can move on (looks great in a footrace)
Mandatory Yield - everybody is yielded, but you can vouch out if you still have a Courtesy of Photo
Target Yield - target any team behind or ahead (for ahead, penalties will be applied at the pitstop)
Karma Yield - the team who uses this will (not knowingly) get a surprise penalty at the pitstop (application in the Korean leg of one of my fantasy races)

Of course, I'm not serious with this. :res:

P.S. Stop dreaming for new twists. :lol:

TWIST: Bring back the Yield, and don't put any more fantarded versions of the U-Turn.

And with that, let me make my own fantarded Yield versions:

Money Yield - you need to pay to use this Yield
Surprise Yield - common sense, right?
Pause Yield - wait for the team you are yielding to arrive so that you can move on (looks great in a footrace)
Mandatory Yield - everybody is yielded, but you can vouch out if you still have a Courtesy of Photo
Target Yield - target any team behind or ahead (for ahead, penalties will be applied at the pitstop)
Karma Yield - the team who uses this will (not knowingly) get a surprise penalty at the pitstop (application in the Korean leg of one of my fantasy races)

Of course, I'm not serious with this. :res:

P.S. Stop dreaming for new twists. :lol:
Ha ha "fantarded". My word of the day today.
How about the "Express U-Turn". If the team that is U-Turned completes the other side of the detour, they get an express pass?
Or
The "Fast Forward U-Turn" If the team that is U-Turned completes the other side of the detour, they get to skip all other tasks and go directly to the pit stop.
Or - my favourite...
The "The Double U-Turn Yield Express Pass Intersection Pit Stop". All teams get very confused and are simultaneously philiminated. They all are guaranteed to be cast on the next Unfinished Business season - unless they are pregnant or dead.

I have a dream.
USA-> Spain (11 legs) -> USA.
:lol3:  Something similar this September... :lol:

Seriously. I just think that some islands such as Tuvalu, Micronesia or something like that could be used as a F4 leg. I really think they could be really creative legs.
I have also thought about some countries such as Venezuela, Argentina, Brazil (I don't even love South America in TAR, but, it's a different atmosphere) but going to little cities where the tradition of the countries is found. I mean, if you go to Rio, it is ultra-modernized for the Olympics and soooo on. But little cities have the enchant of Brazilian culture, for example.
Other countries such as Turkey, India, even China, have already been visited, but I'm afraid they could place legs in there soooo different to those they made in their visits to these countries. My 2 cents: Seen countries with unseen sites.

Philippines
June 14, 2011
The Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the risks of terrorist activity in the Philippines, particularly in the Sulu Archipelago and on the island of Mindanao. Terrorist attacks could be indiscriminate and could occur in other areas, to include Manila. Targeted sites may be public gathering places including, but not limited to, airports, shopping malls, conference centers, and other public venues. This Travel Warning replaces the Travel Warning dated November 2, 2010, and updates specific regions of concern and reflects continuing threats due to terrorist and insurgent activities.

They could always stay far north though.  There's plenty to do with farming and animals, there's spelunking caves, they can do whitewater rafting on the Cagayan River, do something along the north coast.  They wouldn't even have to leave the airport in Manila, just connect to a flight heading to one of the airports up north.

I'd love for TARUS to go back to the Philippines, but I guess best best is to wait for TARA or TARAu to.  :food:

As far as where TAR goes, it wouldn't make no nary mind to me.   Wherever they send you will be exciting.  My wishlist would be to be Boston Rob's teammate as a fan+favorite  team.  Spending time with that rapcsallion while he schemes his way through the race would be priceless.  It would do this golden years mom's heart good.  And believe me, I would not scold.  I would just enjoy.  :<)

Yeah, the problem with a celeb edition is the level of "celebrity" that can actually run the Race without there being problems with security and being recognized around the world.  You've got the Sarah Jessica Parker-level TAR fan who would love to do the Race, but realistically, TAR would have to settle for D-listers and other reality castoffs which would... well, it's better not to think about it.  :lol:

I think celeb editions are more fitting for BB or Survivor, but not exactly TAR.

Post by: kathleenykl on July 01, 2011, 08:48:02 AM
I have a dream route that I have been working on for a while now... see what you guys can make of it  :duno:

Leg 1: Philadelphia, USA - Tikal, Guatemala [10 teams left]
Leg 2: Tikal, Guatemala - Caracas, Venezuela [9 teams left]
This would be a history (Philly) and culture (Mayan culture) themed route. Teams might have to drive 4 hours from Guatemala city to the ruins in Tikal and perform cultural tasks. I also wanted the race to cover South America, but not too much, so Venezuela was chosen.

Leg 3: Caracas, Venezuela - Libreville, Gabon [NEL]
Leg 4: Gabon (Estuaire, Atlantic Equatorial Coastal Ecoforest regions) [8 teams left]
Gabon was given two legs as it was the only African country visited. The tasks and destination would be particularly nature-oriented; Gabon has the largest percentage of nature reserves by total land area, in the region.

Leg 5: Libreville, Gabon - Helsinki, Finland [NEL]
Leg 6: Finland (Rovaniemi) [7 teams left]
Helsinki is chosen as this leg's obligatory modern European city. Also, I felt we needed some cold here. In the additional leg, racers visit Rovaniemi, the capital of Finnish Lapland. I just can't get enough of the orgasmic arctic circle leg in Season 17.

Leg 7: Helsinki, Finland - Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia [6 teams left]
Again, change in environment from modern city to sandy desert dunes and rolling plains. Fulfils my Genghis Khan Silk Road fantasy. I like it a lot.

Leg 8: Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia - Kathmandu, Nepal [NEL]
Leg 9: Nepal (Pokhara and Annapurna mountain range) [5 teams left]
New country. Also, to visit the mountain range of the Everest in a full leg would be a nice respite from the Andes and Swiss alps that we have seen in previous seasons.

Leg 10: Kathmandu, Nepal - Singapore, Singapore [4 teams left]
After the majesty of untouched wilderness, we need a last big modern city destination before End City. (Sorry beautiful beaches of Indonesia!) It was a toss-up between Singapore and Wellington, New Zealand, but I decided to choose Singapore due to its multiculturalism and availability of flights. In previous visits, the culture of this city was not emphasised enough, especially in Season 16 where it was overshadowed by the fast-forward and u-turn drama all in one leg. Another problem I anticipate would be that the final 4 can be easily identified in the little island. But one can dream.

Leg 11: Singapore, Singapore - Suva, Fiji [3 teams left for finals]
I've said umpteenth times that we NEED a south pacific nation as a final elimination stop in West to East routes. There is quiet, island culture, what's not to love? Also, as it is more secluded, this will be able to hide racers' identity better.

Leg 12: Suva, Fiji - Salt Lake City, Utah
SLC as End City just to be away from the West-Coast-city in-your-face that plague the final leg. Also ties in nicely with the fact that many destinations in this race are different and off the beaten track.

New locales: Guatemala, Venezuela, Gabon, Nepal, Fiji, Denver and Philly
Old locales: Finland, Mongolia, Singapore (all were only used once or twice in the race)

Other locations that NEED to happen:
Europe & Americas;
Greece is really beautiful and a good break from stock European locations Italy, France, Germany, but not likely due to financial crisis.
Turkey is really affordable, I have no idea why they are not going there!
Greenland & Antarctic - would be fun but I'm not desperate over it. Too expensive.
Yugoslavian bloc + Ukraine, Lat/Lith - needs to happen seriously.
Canada - neglected
Asia & Oceania;
Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines - strictly the inner parts only, big cities overdone
Indonesia - but my dream came true already :) why oh why did it take so long though?
Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan - totally my Silk Road fantasy
South India please - they've done north and east, so please do Chennai or Kerala (again!) or something
China - overdone but it's so big it never gets old if you visit different cities each season. New awesome cities: Hainan, Guangzhou, Xiamen, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Harbin, Chengdu, Nanning, Guiyang, Wuhan, Hefei, Huangshan mountains etc... the list could go on
Bhutan & Tibet - if they can get in Bhutan
Papua New Guinea and South Pacific islands - new scenery
Tasmania

Thanks for reading guys, I put a lot of creativity into it, let me know what you think  :)

My idea for fun~~~~~~~~~~~~

I think producers of TAR can pick up some elements from The Mole and provide for the fans an online quasi-The-Mole game, maybe called “Guess Who the Mysterious Guy is?

Just pick up one contestant from the final winning team as “the Mysterious Guy”. After each episode the host gives out a quiz which consists of 10 questions concerning this contestant. For example, it could be questions like “Which position was the Mysterious Team in when they arrived at the Detour?” or “Is the Mysterious Guy male or female?” or “Did the Mysterious Guy do the RB on this episode?” Fans who have registered in this game can then get online and answer the questions. 5% of them that score lowest are eliminated. Finally, the fan that has passed all quizzes through and scores highest in the final quiz is the Winner of the Fans, who can get a special gift from TAR crew.

We can also develop a twist for this game like “exemption.” For example, fans who have successfully predicted the team that arrives at the pit stop in a certain position in the following lap can get an exemption. For instance, maybe fans that have successfully picked out the 4th team in Leg 1 get an exemption for Leg 1 of Guessing Who the Mysterious Guy Is, and those who have successfully picked out the 2nd team in Leg 2 get an exemption for Leg 2, etc.

Fans that have been eliminated can also participate in the quiz next round, but these people will not be counted as “contestants that are still running" in this game. They’re ineligible for the final prize.

Maybe I am reading this wrong, so I am sorry if so...but, Washington's birthday holiday was made official 1/31/1879 by Congress.  Washington died in 1799.

One thing I was thinking about yesterday that any version of TAR should do is give out more Race powers as Pit Stop prizes, like they already do with the Express Pass. Sort of like what we fantasy game hosts do. :snicker:

The problem is that ordinary people aren't really that interesting.
Its the extraordinary people who are larger than life that get cast.

My favorite people on TAR are the ones who started out as ordinary people...not the stunt casted. But in this day and age CBS/WRP clearly believe that they need the ratings help of YouTube bloggers, athletes, BQ's, and others who have some sort of following already.

A fan in China comes up with an idea of setting a new mission called "SPLIT", a variation of RB.

This kind of mission requires that one contestant of a team do one task in a place and his/her teammate do another task in another place, and then they go to a certain place to meet again, and get the next clue.

Title: Re: TAR Wishlist - locations, routes, twists, teams, tasks & dreams!**NO SPOILERS**
Post by: DavidJunior on September 10, 2011, 06:51:22 PM
Here's my two cents:
Starts with 12 teams and goes for 13 legs* (I like the 12 team seasons, and I feel they should bring the leg count back to 13).
Note: I personally count double-length legs as two separate legs, but denote them as one. (So, even though it may say 12 legs, it's actually 13, since one leg was twice as long).

Leg 1: New York City, U.S.A. to Buenos Aires, Argentina (EL- 11 teams remain) New York deserves to have a starting line, especially since it's season 20.  A good time to do a throw-back to the original.  Buenos Aires is also a good city that hasn't been visited since Season 7, and could easily field another leg.

Leg 2: Buenos Aires to North-West Argentina (EL- 10 teams remain) Central and Southern Argentina have been used a lot.  Would be nice to utilize this area, as well.  Also, a good time to do a Switchback of the meat eating Roadblock from Season 7.  It also, helps us transition to our next location.

Leg 3: Salta, Argentina to Asuncion, Paraguay (EL- 9 teams remain/U-turn #1) New location, with several possibilities in terms of tasks.  Throw in a U-turn here to maybe spice things up a little.

Leg 4: Paraguay to Rome, Italy to Vatican City (NEL- 9 teams remain) Rome definitely deserves another visit, especially since it hasn't been used since Season 1, and on top of that, was only used in a couple "find the monument" tasks on that season.  Also, an actual stop in the Holy See would be nice.  Even a pitstop would suffice.

Leg 5: Rome to Pompeii/Naples/Capri, Italy (EL- 8 teams remain) I love to see the Mediterranean coast.  And this leg would feature it prominently.  Have clues and tasks throughout the region, and maybe end on the Isle of Capri.

Leg 6: Naples, Italy to Riga, Latvia (EL-7 teams remain) I'm actually quite surprised Latvia has yet to be used.  Most likely similar to the Lithuanian (S12), and Estonian (S15) from before.  Also, could be considered the "cold leg" of the season, since it would be winter up there.

Leg 7a: Riga, Latvia to Nairobi, Kenya (DL- 7 teams remain) This will be a double-length leg, or super leg as some call it.  Have the majority of this half of the leg in and around Nairobi with the midpoint within the city.

Leg 7b: Kenya (EL- 6 teams remain) Move from the city onto a national park or game preserve.  Have a task or two based off of the animals native to the region.

Leg 8: Nairobi, Kenya to Male, Maldives (EL- 5 teams remain) I feel there needs to be at least one tropical location per season, and this country would be a perfect fit for just that.

Leg 9: Male, Maldives to Christchurch, New Zealand (EL- 4 teams remain/U-turn #2)  Love seeing the green hills of New Zealand, and think that they would look wonderful in HD.  Also, they haven't been to the Southern Island in a while.

Leg 10: Christchurch, New Zealand to Chengdu, China (NEL- 4 teams remain) I feel this city is a must see in China, and a little (not very) surprised it hasn't been visited quite yet.  Many food and cultural tasks can be done here.

Leg 11: Sichuan, China (EL- 3 remain)  Not necessarily staying just to Chengdu, but traveling around the region.  Again, plenty of tasks that could be used for this area.

Leg 12: Chengdu, China to Vancouver, Canada to Seattle, U.S.A. (Finale) I believe Vancouver could be a wonderful intermediate location.  Have a couple of tasks in the downtown area before taking the ferry from Victoria across to Seattle.  Have one or two more tasks in Seattle (final memory challenge please).

11 countries (including U.S.A.): 3 of which are completely new (Paraguay, Latvia, the Maldives), 2 with actual visits for the first time (Vatican City and Kenya), 3 more that haven't been visited in several to many seasons (Italy, New Zealand, Canada), and the last two visiting new regions within the country (Salta, Argentina and Sichuan, China).

Post by: Katarzyna on September 12, 2011, 09:51:08 PM
^that's a good read DavidJunior.

Here's my two cents too :) for season 20
11 teams in 12 legs. 1 super leg which is a double length leg in 2 episodes.


Leg 1: Miami Beach, USA -  Barbados
First task in the starting line. Last 2 teams to finish will receive "wrong way" penalty.
The "wrong way" will require the team to take a farther/longer destination route info to retrieve their next clue. This could be seen next to the first route info clue box.
We haven't seen so much of Caribbean yet. It would be great to start off the race with teams on their skimpy clothes  :-[

Leg 2: Barbados - Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago (NEL)
Another spicy tropical lush destination. Teams will swim, hike, run & dive their way to finish line.

Leg 3: Trinidad & Tobago - Colonia, Uruguay
Colonia, a renowned UNESCO heritage city. The nostalgia of Old Spanish colony town. Roadblock happens in Montevideo but Detour and Finish Line is at Colonia.

Leg 4: Uruguay - Luanda, Angola
Immersing the teams in the congested streets of Luanda would be interesting. A city of 5 million people. All tasks will be inspired from the local's entertainment or leisure life in the city. In this leg, instead of a roadblock teams will perform "Dine in", a task which one team member must eat a local Angolan delicacy.

Leg 5: Luanda - Malanje, Angola
From the congested city, teams will travel to the lush less populated rainforests of Angola. Where trees and animal population is greater than the human. A physically exhausting roadblock that deals with jungle task will surprise our teams. Fast Forward also present in this leg.

Leg 6: Angola - Edinburgh, Scotland (NEL - double length)
The first part of the super leg or double length leg. In Scotland, teams will perform a road block and a mini task. No finish line in this leg.

Leg 7: Scotland - Manchester, England
In part 2. Teams will travel by car to Manchester. Hoping themselves not to get lost in their way. Another mini task and a detour exist in the leg. Double U-Turn is present in the race. Finish line in this leg.

Leg 8: England - Belgrade, Serbia
From stunning Belgrade, teams will have a long travel to the classical Subotica, Serbia.

Leg 9: Serbia - Doha, Qatar
The hot Sun scorches from above of Doha. Souq, camels, deserts are always a great combination.

Leg 10: Qatar - Kochi, India (NEL)
It would be nice to see India from a different view. A fishing and coastal city but still with the crazy fun Indian atmosphere.

Leg 11: India - Sapporo, Japan
Japan is wonderful all year round. But Sapporo is even more wonderful during winter. White snows covering the city, and as early as December you may see ice sculptures for the preparation of the Yuki Matsuri or Snow Festival. And to add more drama for the revelation of final 3, a double U-turn will be present in this leg.

Leg 12: Japan - Las Vegas, USA
The ultimate finish line. Teams will gamble their way to be the winner. Only teams brave enough to take risk shall win.

Continents visited: 5
Countries visited: 9 (excluding USA)
New countries visited: 5 (Barbados, Trinidad & Tobago, Angola, Serbia & Qatar)
New twists: Wrong way & Dine in

Speed bumps still exists after NEL legs. And since it's season 20, one of the prizes in the legs will be $20,000 for each team member who'll come first.

Teams -  I think we need less dating teams and more family teams, eg. Auntie and Niece, Grandpa and Grandson. We also need a team like Anne-Marie and Tracy in every season, a team who can just laugh at themselves.

Route - Italy, Philippines, Finland and Ukraine are WAY overdue. I'd like to see more of Mongolia and Kazakhstan as well, maybe even a trip to Kyrgyzstan. We also need to see Cyprus and Latvia.

Other stuff - Bring back the yield, and maybe even bring in the blind or double yield. Instead of just one fast forward, maybe two or three, and there should be an intersection at least once per season.

In season 12, there was Ari and Staella. They were a male/female friend team. However, they were booted in leg 1. I agree with you though. There should be more friend teams.

I don't think they'll gamble and go to the Philippines, which I really hope they visit again.
The US travel government still has travel alerts against the Philippines. And especially now, an Italian priest has been killed
and the local rebels are attacking again.
Hoping for more of Eastern Europe though. And Middle East.

My race route

I would rather this be a Nov/Dec filming season but it could work as a May/Jun season.

Leg 1 San Diego to Canberra, Australia(teams will only get a provided flight to Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane before finding flights to canberra , teams will fly out of LAX)
Leg 2 Canberra to Melbourne, Australia
Leg 3 Melbourne to Nepal
Leg 4 Nepal to Qatar to Bahrian   
Leg 5 Bahrian to Jorden
Leg 6 Jorden to Israil to Cyprus (2 part leg)
Leg 7 Cyprus to Lativa
Leg 8 Lativa to Naples, Italiy
Leg 9  Naples to Malta
Leg 10 Malta to Madrid, Spain
Leg 11 Madrid, Spain to Paraguay
Leg 12 Paraguay to Cuba to Washington DC

On this route all locations have not been visited by US tar and only 2 locations have been visited by international tar(Melbourne and israil)
There is 16 countries on the route

My race route would start at Venice, LA (the mouth of the Mississippi River) and end at St. Croix state park just north of Minneapolis/St. Paul (the start of the Mississippi River).

As for twists, the one twist I'd love to see is simple.  Treat the "Fast Pass" like they treat the hidden idol on Survivor.  If it's used, it should be added to whatever prizes are given at the end of the next leg (or even better--the current leg).  So, if you use the Fast Pass, you have to take into consideration that someone else will get it.

I thought of a Twist called the Regulated Detour. It's where teams must sign up for a Detour, and only a limited number of spots are allowed. Also, no switching! For example, if 7 teams were left, the Detour A could only have 3 users, and Detour B four.

Here's my two cents:
Starts with 12 teams and goes for 13 legs* (I like the 12 team seasons, and I feel they should bring the leg count back to 13).
Note: I personally count double-length legs as two separate legs, but denote them as one. (So, even though it may say 12 legs, it's actually 13, since one leg was twice as long).

Leg 1: New York City, U.S.A. to Buenos Aires, Argentina (EL- 11 teams remain) New York deserves to have a starting line, especially since it's season 20.  A good time to do a throw-back to the original.  Buenos Aires is also a good city that hasn't been visited since Season 7, and could easily field another leg.

Leg 2: Buenos Aires to North-West Argentina (EL- 10 teams remain) Central and Southern Argentina have been used a lot.  Would be nice to utilize this area, as well.  Also, a good time to do a Switchback of the meat eating Roadblock from Season 7.  It also, helps us transition to our next location.

Leg 3: Salta, Argentina to Asuncion, Paraguay (EL- 9 teams remain/U-turn #1) New location, with several possibilities in terms of tasks.  Throw in a U-turn here to maybe spice things up a little.

Leg 4: Paraguay to Rome, Italy to Vatican City (NEL- 9 teams remain) Rome definitely deserves another visit, especially since it hasn't been used since Season 1, and on top of that, was only used in a couple "find the monument" tasks on that season.  Also, an actual stop in the Holy See would be nice.  Even a pitstop would suffice.

Leg 5: Rome to Pompeii/Naples/Capri, Italy (EL- 8 teams remain) I love to see the Mediterranean coast.  And this leg would feature it prominently.  Have clues and tasks throughout the region, and maybe end on the Isle of Capri.

Leg 6: Naples, Italy to Riga, Latvia (EL-7 teams remain) I'm actually quite surprised Latvia has yet to be used.  Most likely similar to the Lithuanian (S12), and Estonian (S15) from before.  Also, could be considered the "cold leg" of the season, since it would be winter up there.

Leg 7a: Riga, Latvia to Nairobi, Kenya (DL- 7 teams remain) This will be a double-length leg, or super leg as some call it.  Have the majority of this half of the leg in and around Nairobi with the midpoint within the city.

Leg 7b: Kenya (EL- 6 teams remain) Move from the city onto a national park or game preserve.  Have a task or two based off of the animals native to the region.

Leg 8: Nairobi, Kenya to Male, Maldives (EL- 5 teams remain) I feel there needs to be at least one tropical location per season, and this country would be a perfect fit for just that.

Leg 9: Male, Maldives to Christchurch, New Zealand (EL- 4 teams remain/U-turn #2)  Love seeing the green hills of New Zealand, and think that they would look wonderful in HD.  Also, they haven't been to the Southern Island in a while.

Leg 10: Christchurch, New Zealand to Chengdu, China (NEL- 4 teams remain) I feel this city is a must see in China, and a little (not very) surprised it hasn't been visited quite yet.  Many food and cultural tasks can be done here.

Leg 11: Sichuan, China (EL- 3 remain)  Not necessarily staying just to Chengdu, but traveling around the region.  Again, plenty of tasks that could be used for this area.

Leg 12: Chengdu, China to Vancouver, Canada to Seattle, U.S.A. (Finale) I believe Vancouver could be a wonderful intermediate location.  Have a couple of tasks in the downtown area before taking the ferry from Victoria across to Seattle.  Have one or two more tasks in Seattle (final memory challenge please).

11 countries (including U.S.A.): 3 of which are completely new (Paraguay, Latvia, the Maldives), 2 with actual visits for the first time (Vatican City and Kenya), 3 more that haven't been visited in several to many seasons (Italy, New Zealand, Canada), and the last two visiting new regions within the country (Salta, Argentina and Sichuan, China).


what are the odds?!?! change the starting line to Los Angeles and this race could ACTUALLY be happening right now (TAR20) up to the end of Leg 5!!  :cmaslol
im actually hoping that this is the route for TAR20, and it does seem possible (except Kenya)

i actually really like this race!! nice work  :cmas16

Something I liked in TAR 19 (and to a degree, TAR 18 albeit with poor choice of countries) is the number of double legs in a particular place allowing for a greater exploration of the area. Based on this, here's a route I came up with.

Visual version (http://www.travellerspoint.com/member_map.cfm?tripid=303808#/tripid/303808)

START: Big Bear Lake, California

Leg 1: US to Canaima, Venezuela (charter flights from Caracas, tasks in and around Angel Falls)
Leg 2: Canaima, Venezuela to Caracas, Venezuela (charter flights from Canaima ensuring that the leg is run during the day)
Leg 3: Caracas, Venezuela to Lima, Peru
Leg 4: Lima, Peru to Kinderdijk, Netherlands (via Amsterdam and Rotterdam)
Leg 5: Kinderdijk, Netherlands to Zagreb, Croatia to Ljubljana, Slovenia
Leg 6: Ljubljana, Slovenia to Bled, Slovenia
Leg 7: Bled, Slovenia to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Leg 8: Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to Gondar, Ethiopia
Leg 9: Gondar, Ethiopia to Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan
Leg 10: Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan to Bukhara, Uzbekistan (via Tashkent)
Leg 11: Bukhara, Uzbekistan to Johor Bahru, Malaysia (via Kuala Lumpur)
Leg 12: Johor Bahru, Malaysia to San Jose, California (via Kuala Lumpur and San Francisco)

FINISH: Grant Ranch Park, Mt. Hamilton, California

Yes, only 9 countries (non US) are visited, but 4 are new, 3 others have only been visited once and the other two haven't been visited recently (15 and 16) and explore new locations.

My main wish is for TAR to visit Armenia. I've been waiting for so long, so I really hope they pop in there at some point! :cmaslol

Other than that, I would love for them to take the idea of TAR3 - only visit countries that have never been visited before! It was much easier to do during TAR3, because very few countries had been visited so far, but it would be a very unique and interesting race if they could do it at any point in the future! :cmas16

I can't be 100% sure of the others, but I was in Armenia just last year, and my sister was there just 2 months ago. It is completely safe there, especially if teams stay in the capital city of Yerevan. Even if they ventured out of Yerevan, there's a bit of poverty, but no real danger.

I hope TAR goes there soon!! :hearts:

I will probably want to see a true All Stars Season of TAR. The Amazing Race: All Stars World Series with all past winners.  You know, a 2nd chance to win the $1,000,000.  The season would also have to step up their challenges to be even tougher than any season in the past.  You know what, throw in some winners from the international versions as well.

Season 1
Rob & Brennan

Season 17
Nat & Kat

Season 18
Kisha & Jen

Season 14
Tammy & Victor

Season 15
Meghan & Cheyne

Season 13
Nick & Starr

Asia Season 1
Joe Jer & Zabrina

Australian Season 1
Tyler & Nathan

LatinoAmerica Season 3
Nicolas & Cristobal

Season 9
BJ & Tyler

Amazing Race China Rush Season 1
Charlie and Rachel

HaMerotz LaMillion season 1
Shay & Guy

I tried to balance all the teams out so it could be tough competition and even amount f/f m/f and m/m teams.  I also tried to balance the teams with the teams that had the most legs won on their season as well.  What do you think people?

I like the above idea..and I think one of our member here try to put it in the fantasy game series  :cmas22

Another surprise that comes through my mind is that:
at the beginning, the TAR Productions send an invitation of Banquet / Gala Dinner, where the attendance consist of previous winners from all season US series, Asian Series, Australian, Israeli, Latino, and China Rush..

What teams don't know is that the host of that night's Banquet are Phil, Allan, Grant, Raz and Harris..
Every host will introduce the teams that represent their series..
After having a chat, really nice dinner, entertainment and so on, one of the Host (Let say Phil,) come up to the stage and surprisingly announced that there will be a TAR show involving best of the best teams from all series..The winner of this TAR World Championship will crowned a TAR World Champion title and bring home another $1.000.000

Phil: In order to participate in this Amazing Race World Championship, just under your seat folks, you will see a lucky number that you have to match with the combination bla..bla..bla..
The first SIX teams from US series that can figure out the combination will win the Golden Ticket to participate in this race, the FIRST team of each International Versions who can solve the combination will have to come up to their host and take the Golden Ticket with you...

You have 3 weeks after you guess the right answer to settle every single personal matters and preparation before you meet us back in California (let say..)

What an imagination... Hahaha

I'm not a huge fan of cooking shows myself (I only watch a select few, and I hardly watch anything that doesn't involve Gordon Ramsay :lol: ) but I think it would be a rather interesting team dynamic if contestants on a cooking show came on TAR. I'm not sure how well they would go, but I'm always up for seeing different things happening on TAR, so it might be a great little twist! :duno:

I can't be 100% sure on this, but I recall someone mentioning that a leg in Belize was planned suring the Family Edition, but they had to get rid of it at the last minute due to some sort of weather conditions. I don't remember exactly, but I remember something along those lines... :duno:

What I would really like is more "Russian mystery"-like tasks (TAR17 Leg 7 where they needed to find landmarks of Saint-Petersburg). I find it fun, creates drama, and it showcase pretty well the city. Personnally, they should have done this in Brussels.

Bali, Indonesia :hoot:
Fiji :hoot:
Belize :hoot:

I wonder why TAR doesn't visit place that they use as a prize for winning a leg (except Panama, I think). But, I mean, they often give a trip to Belize, but TAR hasn't visited it at all

I can't be 100% sure on this, but I recall someone mentioning that a leg in Belize was planned suring the Family Edition, but they had to get rid of it at the last minute due to some sort of weather conditions. I don't remember exactly, but I remember something along those lines... :duno:

This is correct, it was due to a hurricane... I can't remember correctly if it was the same one that devastated New Orleans tho (that was around the same time)

Just watched the finale of TAR 12, and I was wondering whether the final roadblock will be brought again or not. I think that is the hardest memory challenge and should be appeared again as a Switchback task. With the different items, of course

I also don't mind seeing people from other reality show. Who wants to see people from Master Chef in The Amazing Race? :lol:

Although, the possibility of it becomes true is less than zero, but I still have my fingers crossed

 :cheer:

 :lol3:

That would be so funny, especially if they would do a food challenge.. Can picture it straight away!!  :lol:
Or ex-Mole contestants who are looking for hidden codes in the 'clues' they are given..  :lol3:

In fact if there would be a crossover between two or three of these shows, I would watch it in a heartbeat!!  :wohoo:

Just a few ideas I've had:

- Would love to see the race go to some of the Pacific island such as Fiji, Vanuatu and Samoa
- What if there was a U-Turn at the RB? Where the person who previously didn't complete had to go back and complete it?
- I had an absolute crazy idea for a leg, that seems ridiculous, but I dub it the European nightmare (wouldn't never work, but just fun thinking about it):-

LEG START - Dusseldorf, Germany, ROUTE INFO - Berlin, Germany, ROAD BLOCK - Lichtenstein, ROUTE INFO - Zurich, Switzerland, DETOUR - Vienna, Austria - PIT STOP - Budapest, Hungary.

Would never work, but would be great to see a leg like that take place  :lol:

Post by: Charlie90 on January 30, 2012, 02:40:50 PM
With TAR Norway and TAR Philippines being announced now we have 9 versions of TAR around the world and you know its inevitable that another All Stars edition will be produced for the US version. So i was thinking: "What if they make it with the winners of each version and each team could represent a different country?" This way we would have the best teams racing each other, and if you think about it none of these teams know what it feels like to be eliminated. So why don't you share your ideas for The Amazing Race: Winner's Circle, like your dream route, the selected teams, places you want them to visit and some of the tasks.

Here is my two cents:

TEAMS
-For TAR, TARLA, and TARA, i chose two teams each since they have the most seasons of each franchise
-For TAR i chose one team representing the Old seasons (1-10) and another one for the New ones (12-19)


1-Rob and Brennan (TAR1-US)
2-Nat and Kat(TAR17-US)
3-Patricia and Sane(TARBr-Brazil)
4-Zabrina and Joe Jer(TARA1-Malaysia)
5-Adrian and Collin(TAR2-Singapore)
6-Matias and Tamara(TARLA1-Argentina)
7-Carlos and Edmundo(TARLA2-Mexico)
8-Guy and Shay(TARI1-Israel)
9-Tyler and Nathan(TARAu1-Australia)
10-Charlie and Rachel(TARCR1-China)
11- Winners of TARP
12- Winners of TARN

That way we have 12 teams, each from a different country (except US, who gets two since there are 20 seasons).

ROUTE
-Being a season that unites all franchises i think it would be great to have exotic locations and at least one new country per continent.

Leg 1- New York,US to Paramaribo, Suriname
Leg 2- Paramaribo, Suriname to Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea
Leg 3- Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea to Surabaya, Indonesia
Leg 4- Surabaya, Indonesia to Amman, Jordan
Leg 5- Amman, Jordan to Ma'an, Jordan
Leg 6- Ma'an, Jordan to Cairo, Egypt
Leg 7- Cairo, Egypt to Libreville, Gabon
Leg 8- Libreville, Gabon to Estuaire,Gabon
Leg 9- Estuaire, Gabon to Athens, Greece
Leg 10- Athens, Greece to Crete, Greece
Leg 11- Crete, Greece to Andorra la Vella, Andorra
Leg 12- Andorra la Vella, Andorra to Los Angeles, US


Some of this countries are not safe to travel to right now..but it's just wishful thinking after all :P

So there you go..What do u think? Share your ideas  :lol:

This is a rather specific wish, but I want to see some legs that are all about running around large cities at night, cities like London or Tokyo.

They did a Tokyo leg at night during BJ and Tyler's season. Although I wish they had done better. Atleast Shibuya crossing at night was featured ;)

I wish they'll do a leg during winter in Yakutsk, Russia. The coldest city in the world.

I want to see a season where they go around the US. It worked for China and Brazil. Make it like the Family Edition, but make the challenges as difficult as in normal races, go to interesting places (not the world's largest office chair), and keep it to two per team. But I know this will never happen because of how poorly that season did.

How about a season full of countries that haven't been seen on TAR in at least five seasons (their last appearance was at least five seasons ago)?

Because there's just so much of Country X that you can see before you get bored of it.

I don't mind visiting a frequently or often visited country like India or China, as long as they visit a new region or city.

For example:
China - Manchuria, Tibet and Xinjiang.
Japan - Kyushu, Hokkaido, Okinawa and Chugoku.
Russia - Far East (Yakutsk, Vladivosktok)
Australia - West Oz and Central Oz (Alice Springs)

It would be difficult for TAR production to make a leg in Bhutan due to some reasons. It's not a fully open country.
You have to apply tourism visa atleast 30 days before coming to Bhutan. You have to pay $200 a night per person. And you are not allowed to travel by your own, a travel guide provided by the Bhutan government is required.

I want more disgusting eating tasks. The one that really eeked me was the live octopus in South Korea.
I wish (just a wish), they can do that meat ripping challenge from Survivor last season.

I never want to see a disgusting eating challenge again. I really don't think the Race needs to stoop to trying to make contetants puke...

Agreed. Leave that to Fear Factor or some other disgusting stunt show.

But those "disgusting" food that they eat are also part of other cultures around the world. And they need to be seen. Its an embedded part of life in the other parts of the world, even though its "disgusting" in the viewers lives (while its delicious through the locals' eyes). Its completely unfair if they just let them eat steak, hamburgers, fries, chocolates, or any staple in the Western life.

My problem with many of those challenges is just the sheer quantity of the food. If it's not physically possible to complete the challenge without vomiting several times, I don't want to watch it. It shouldn't be faster to skip the challenge than to finish it. I personally want to see more local cuisine, but please no shots of throwing up (this includes sound).

Yup! People complain about disgusting food while in fact the one that should be complained is how the editors edit the challenge (adding scenes of throwing up, etc.) :tup:

If I made a wishlist I could go on and on and on. Instead I wanted to put my bets on where TAR21 will visit. If something is in CAPITALS it means the countries I have listed under it are the ones i think TAR21 will visit IF they go to that continent/area. 

CENTRAL AMERICA
I thought the penultimate Panama Leg in TAR19 was great, I'm hoping a Central American Leg for TAR21, but I'm still not sure
- my best bets are Belize, Guatemala and Costa Rica

SOUTH AMERICA
After three Legs in TAR20. I'm sadly going to rule out South America for TAR21 :(

EUROPE
- the unvisited countries I think might be visited are Latvia, Malta and Cyprus
- the Mediterranean countries, the ones I am thinking of are Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece and Turkey
- Yugoslavia, my bets are Slovenia, Bosnia, Croatia, Albania and Serbia
- overdue-due-for-another-visit countries, I think are Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Finland

AFRICA
I still have not decided yet. But I absolutely LOVE the race in Africa. 
- my best bets are Benin, Gabon and Uganda

MIDDLE EAST
- sadly, I only have one bet, and that is Qatar

ASIA
- for unvisited countries I'm thinking Nepal, Laos and Burma
- at least one leg in a large Asian city

OCEANIA
- my strongest feeling is New Zealand, which I think will be visited TAR21 or the one after that
- Phil has stated that he wants the race to go to the Pacific Islands, so I'm going to place bets for Fiji, Tahiti and Samoa

If TAR21 goes to EUROPE first, then I think we will have an east coast start. If New Zealand is the first stop then we will have a west coast start. I am confident either Europe or New Zealand will be the first stop. As for the final destination city, it will be on the west coast or in Texas.

Please share your thoughts on my ideas, I like opinions regardless if they are positive or negative :)

I think Houston should definitely be on WRP's final destination list!  :tup:
It is the 4th largest city in the USA and has never hosted part of a race 

Not only is it a huge city full of possible challenges, the race could also venture out to Trinity Bay  :conf:
IAH (George Bush Intercontinental Airport) is a huge hub and racers could fly in directly from Europe or Central/South America

I think Houston needs to host a final leg, and the Bayou Bend Mansion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayou_Bend_Collection_and_Gardens) would be the perfect Finish Line  :hrt:
The mansion is accessible through two ways I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) and could easily be closed off for a finish line. It's also secluded so no one could peek through and watch
If teams taxi's took them down Memorial Drive and turned off at Westcott Street to the garden's carpark, teams would have to run across the bridge and through the gorgeous gardens to get to a photo finish ending  :wohoo:
*Note: the Finish Line would be at the back of the mansion, like TAR19 finish line at Swan House  :)

Who's with me for Houston!  :hoot:

Post by: Glamazon Racer on March 17, 2012, 10:09:03 AM
I don't think I've actually created a whole route on this thread before (maybe I have :lol: ) but here I go:

Leg 1: Anywhere in USA Other Than LA -> Guatemala City, Guatemala (they leave the city, though)
Leg 2: Guatemala City, Guatemala -> Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago
Leg 3: Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago -> Durban, South Africa
Leg 4: Durban, South Africa -> Luanda, Angola
Leg 5: Luanda, Angola -> Yaounde, Cameroon
Leg 6: Yaounde, Cameroon -> Malabo, Equatorial Guinea
Leg 7: Malabo, Equatorial Guinea -> Banjul, Gambia
Leg 8: Banjul, Gambia -> Anywhere, Spain
Leg 9: Anywhere, Spain -> Birmingham, England
Leg 10: Birmingham, England -> Yerevan, Armenia
Leg 11: Yerevan, Armenia -> Vientiane, Laos
Leg 12: Vientiane, Laos -> Western USA (Not LA)

I know it's probably an extremely infeasible route, but it'd be a lot of fun. I cut back on Asia on my route, because I feel that recent seasons of TAR (13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 19) have spent WAAAAY too much time in Asia compared to other continents. I spent a lot of time in Africa because I absolutely love Africa, and TAR does not spend enough time there at all. I tossed in a couple of legs in Central America at the beginning, as we don't spend enough time there either.

10. ? to Kathmandu, Nepal (4, NE leg)
11. Kathmandu to Vientiane, Laos (4-3)
12. Vientiane to Salt Lake City, Utah, USA (3-1)

10 Countries (3 new, 4 if you count Kenya). I dont think they will go to oceania in AR 21 because it will be winter in the southern hemisphere during that time.

I'd love to see a great driving leg another time, as of that in TAR4, where teams had to drive about 500 miles, from north to south of France.

I think that a leg in some point in Spain (obviously I support my country, and it is underrated) could lead to a train to a Northern place (Barcelona, maybe) and then a great driving to Monte Carlo. <3

MAybe more research would be better, but definitely, I'd love another of those self-drive in the night legs.

I completely agree with you. They haven't really explored South Korea much yet. The southern part of the country is so full of culture.

I like this route!

Thanks buddy! :)

I finally have my dream route. It's nothing fancy, I'm not picky about the cities.

starting line: Washington, D.C.
Wherever, Ireland
Aarhus, Denmark
Stockholm, Sweden
Prague, Czech Republic
Thessalonika, Greece
Wherever, Seychelles
Wherever, Singapore
Tokyo, Japan
Wherever, Vanuatu
Auckland, New Zealand
Wherever, Costa Rica
finish line: Orlando, Florida

It could happen!  :tup:

Looks spectacular! :colors

I'm the kind of person who LOVES Switchbacks, and there are lots of potential Switchbacks along that route (Ireland donkeys :badhorse: , Swedish haybales (Switch-Switch-Back), something similar to 'FRANZ' in Czech Republic, 'Ox Trot' in Seychelles, red bean in Costa Rica). :lol:

That would be an epic route! :yess:

Technically speaking 5 legs in Africa is possible.

Two in Egypt followed by a leg in Tanzania and then two legs in South Africa/Botswana.

Yeah, I would love something like that! :colors

Or even if they popped into a never-before-visited country as well, that would be nice. Kenya would be nice to see. It hasn't actually hosted any TAR tasks, even though teams have flown there. :tup:

I really enjoy Africa legs, so I'd really like them to spend a lot more time in Africa than they have in recent seasons... the last time that TAR spent 3 or more legs in Africa was on TAR10 (counting the islands of Madagascar and Mauritius) or TAR7 if you don't count those islands.

correct me if I am wrong, but so far there have only been 5 all-female team winners in the entire amazing race franchise:

in order

1. Joe Jer and Zabrina (The Amazing Race Asia 1)
2. Patricia and Sane (The Amazing Race Brazil)
3. Nat and Kat (The Amazing Race 17)
4. Kisha and Jen (The Amazing Race 18)
5. Bar and Inna (The Amazing Race Israel 2)

I don't know why, but watching an all female team win (only seen 1, 3, and 4) is so incredibly satisfying because there is this dumb stereotypes that female teams are weak and unable to handle the race. While there are many who fulfill this, there are still a lot of great one (Dustin and Kandice, Charla and Mirna, Linda and Karen, etc..), not as much as the other types but there still there. There needs to be more all-female winners, that's my wish.

There are some countries that would be difficult for the Race to visit. That's why i was surprised that TAR Au went to Cuba. Hopefully the US version will go there soon.
It really sucks that some countries have huge issues going on. Mexico for example, i really want the US Race to come again (Mainly cause i want to be a TAR detective)  :lol:

It would be odd to miss the biggest continent. :lol: And besides, most of the most intense or most bizzare legs are always in Asia.
I would like them to visit India, and instead of taking cabs, they will drive their cars. :lol: Good luck with that.

For season 21, they really need to step up MORE! The show is getting a little boring. Thank goodness, season 20 has atleast drama to spice up a little. Their viewer ratings are decreasing. If they fall to the 7 million viewer mark, they might end the show.

I completely agree with this. They sometimes go three seasons without visiting a particular continent (e.g. TAR13-15 had no Africa and 16 didn't visit mainland Africa) so I'd like there to be just one season that completely avoided Asia, just to balance things out fairly. :tup: Geographically-speaking, it's quite hard to avoid Asia due to its size, but it is not impossible, so I'd like to see it for once!

How is it boring? I suggest they slow the race down. Comparing earlier seasons it seems like its rushed.

I guess I've seen too much of the amazing race and realized I'm seeing the same cycle. And nothing has really improved, instead it kinda looks like the show downgraded. That's why I want them to step up. Make interesting twists, and jaw dropping tasks. Or extra ordinary locations.
Antarctica perhaps. It is accessible via Argentina or Australia.

Also, I wished they made a 10th year anniversary season special.

I definitely agree Katarzyna, I feel like since Season 15, the race feels so rushed. I loved the old school TAR, and I dearly miss it
I don't know about every else, but Leg 7 of TAR20 felt a bit like old school TAR, I don't know why, maybe it was the conflict at the airport, or the magic of Tanzania, its just that the leg didn't feel rushed and I kinda liked it  :)

I mean the show isn't getting BORING, it's just that it somehow needs more.. excitement? I don't know, I mean some of the recent seasons have had a few fantastic legs, and then other legs it just seems like pre-production don't bother to try spice things up a bit

IMO TAR20 is a HUGE step up, even though the oldest racer is like 53 or something they've done a really good casting job, especially the FF teams (even though 2 of them didn't make it that far), the locations are diverse which I like, the challenges are pretty decent and there is always excitement (but that's one thing production can't make, that is the teams jobs, so I understand why some recent seasons have been a little dull), and I think TAR will regain its spark from here on

I team I wish for is Rin on the Rox, they are two Asian-American girls who are famous on  Youtube for singing (listen to them, they are great)
If they did race, I don't think they would make it far, but I still wouldn't mind watching them

The locations I am PRAYING for are
New Zealand
Peru (Lake Titicaca)
Slovenia
Philippines (Banaue Rice Terraces)
Sri Lanka again
Laos
Israel
Spain
Bhutan
Nepal
Ireland

and MORE AFRICA!!!!!!

Well, about the locations: mostly the countries that teams were not so often or at all [the race with new countries only would be awesome]: and of course since i am form Poland, absolutely polish leg is a definately a "must-be"! Hell, even in my city - Szczecin [recently i am in some weird state, when i see a combination of red and yellow my heart is beating faster :D]. And i think it's a very nice idea to do some two-countres legs, for example from Germany go to Poland, do detour, route info, and another route info, which tells you to fly Ukraine there do roadblock and pit-stop - more possibilties to teams place-swtching ;).

About the twists - re-watchinch TARAus1 gave an idea. Let's call it a "slower". A "Slower" would be received in the first task of the race [like they did on TAR19 with Taiwan], of course the last team would be having this. And in every stop during the race, where are clues there will 3 boxes, each contains an hourglass, and the team who is having the "slower" would have to choose one hourglas and wait time for the sand stopped pouring. [Of course the max amount of time would be max 30 min]. And after that, the team who has the "Slower" has the right to choose another team to have it of course you can only give an "slower" to the team, who has not received the next clue.

If that idea already been - i am very sorry for copying, just wanting to share with you guys. And of course sorry for bad english :).

Why dont they do a mega all-stars in season 25... think about it, 23 teams, 1 from each previous season (except family - maybe 2 poeople from the best team??), racing around the world. I know the budget would be huge, but it would cover the time of 2 seasons... also have a few more rest days to allow the teams to be at their best. A few things about it:

- Only 1 team from each season (besides family)
- The team selected is the team that won the most legs on their respective race (So it really is all-stars!)
- Visit all 6 inhabitable continents, but once in each continent, limit air travel (More amazing HD shots out of trains)
- Maybe go to Antarctica
- 26 legs - Its huge but they should have a day break each 7-8 days of racing
- Less twists, but when there are twists, make them massive!
- If teams on the same race have an equal amount of legs, the higher finishing team is chosen (Ill put an asterix next to these below)

On this, the teams would be: (Winners in bold)
1. Rob and Brennan
2. Chris and Alex*

3. Teri and Ian
4. David and Jeff
5. Colin and Christie
6. Kris and Jon
7. Rob and Amber (Sorry!)
9. Eric and Jeremy
10. Tyler and James
11. Dustin and Kandice
12. TK and Rachel
13. Nick and Starr
14. Tammy and Victor
15. Megan and Cheyne
16. Jet and Cord (Ratings Up!!!)
17. Nat and Kat
18. Zev and Justin
19. Andy and Tommy

This would be epic!

anyway, does anyone else see how one sided seasons have become?! thats the issue with the race now, its less competitive! i want it to be like old seasons, wer 6-7 teams would win a leg on the race... we need less dating teams who arent gonna hold up a fight, and more good racers! stop the interraction with other cbs shows as well!

anyway what would u think of this idea?

All stars means fan favorites. Not teams with the most wins.
Season 18 all stars had a not so good cast. I rate them 6/10.

An individual starting line task and the first two people done are a team, 3rd and 4th done are the second team, etc.

But would putting unknowns together work?  :duno:

They have to work together or they'll be eliminated. Duh. :lol:
That's the challenging part, how well can you work with a stranger.

I have always thought if that would be a possibility?

On The Biggest Loser in Season 5, two strangers came to lose weight as a couple, but eventually in that reality show, teams work as 6 member teams and individuals.

Heres mine

1 San Digeo, USA to Canberra, Australia (via LA or Hawaii for flights)
Note: Teams only are provided flights from SD via LA or Hawaii to Sydney or Melbourne before finding their own flights to Canberra) 
2 Canberra to Adelade
3 Adelade to Papua New Guiniea
4 PNG to Jakata, Indonisia
5 Jakata to Kathmandu, Nepal
6 Kathmandu to Hiymalayers, Nepal
7 Nepal to Amman,Jordan
8 (Part A) Jordan to Tel Aviv,Israel (TBC leg)
8 (Part B) Tel Aviv to Jerusalem 
9 Jerusalem to Madrid, Spain
10 Madrid to Havfax, Canada
11 Havfax to Quebec City
Final Leg Quebec City to Toronto to Washinton DC (2 hour finale)

The cool thing about mine is all the locations have not been vistied or have been vistied as a part of a stopover. and well as 4 unvisted countres (PNG, Nepal, Jordan, Israel)

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________


I also have an idea for a twist. For the 1st leg the teams are interseced and the last INTERSECED team is elinamated. It adds a 12th team that makes it to the first pit stop. And to add more fuel to the fire a intersection U turn. Where a interseced team can U turn another interseced team.

...I'd love a twist where the teams were completely shuffled for a leg and both team members in the last place team would have their partners eliminated along with themselves in an evil double elimination. Then again, maybe I'm just looking for something forcing bickering people to work together that's not an intersection. :P

I posted this in the Intersection thread but I believe it belongs here. :P

There are a LOT of countries that only have been visited once or twice. I wouldn't mind if on the next race we only have one new country visited for the first time as long as the rest of the race is made of countries that haven't been visited in a LONG time..Like Portugal, Spain, Ireland,Ukraine, Iceland!!..
The options are infinite (well, not really infinite, but you know what i mean)

Incidentally i have a feeling that Nepal will host a leg on the next race.

The the top two most visited international countries on TAR:U.S. are India and China

Now out of all the 9 seasons  which went to China (including Hong Kong and Macau), these are the only cities that have been visited:

Beijing
Hong Kong
Shanghai
Xian
Macau
Guilin
Lijiang
Kunming

Is it just me or does that seem like hardly any cities compared to all the times the race has been to China

I am pretty sure TAR21 will be paying a visit to China, so I am really hoping they visit a NEW city

I wish they visit the Tibet region of China. But it's very strict there. They won't let you travel without a tour guide. I've been there.

So, my wish is for them to visit the city of Urumqi in Northwest China. It's one of the most exotic cities in China. It's like a different country.

Tibet has a very high elevation (over 4,000 meters). It may be dangerous to race there. :)

Urumqi is a good choice! Don't know why China Rush didn't choose this place. :tup:

I'm pretty surprised they haven't been to Guangzhou yet. One thing for sure is that the China Rush pitstop in Chengdu was awesome and therefore should be returned to in the American version.

This next season totally will have the clueboxes as a final memory challenge. They've been setting up the lack of clueboxes to be the standard, and then BOOM.
Title: Re: TAR Wishlist - locations, routes, twists, teams, tasks & dreams!**NO SPOILERS**
Post by: Genius on May 07, 2012, 11:41:00 AM
This will probably be unpopular, but there could be an intersection right when the teams leave the pit stops (the first clue given to them by production). So the 1st and 2nd teams to depart will work together, and so on. The first or second clue should be a detour, and the new intersected teams can U-turn another intersected team. Of course, the teams should preferably be leaving the pit stop within perhaps less than 2 hours, and the detour should be quite challenging to give the back teams a chance.



I also realize that certain well-known attractions are not used as stops even when TAR (US) visits that specific city. Examples include:

Honolulu - Waikiki Beach, Pearl Harbor (I was hoping that it would be visited this season, but I suppose that it would be too noticeable)
Taipei - Taipei 101
Shanghai - Oriental Pearl TV Tower
London - Big Ben clock tower, Westminster Abbey

Hopefully they could be visited one day by the US version.



If they visit Stockholm again, it would be great if teams could retrace the locations featured in the Millennium series.

And finally, NO MORE JAPANESE GAME SHOWS!

TAR 21 Prediction
I'm gonna look back at this and see if I got atleast 1 correct.  :lol:

Route:
Starting Line: Chicago, US
Leg 1: Reykjavik, Iceland
Leg 2: Iceland (NEL)
Leg 3: Lyon, France - Geneva, Switzerland
Leg 4: Gdansk, Poland
Leg 5: Marrakesh, Morocco
Leg 6: Sahara desert, Morocco (Berber region)
Leg 7: Madagascar (NEL)
Leg 8: Luang Prabang, Laos
Leg 9: Guangzhou, China (TBC)
Leg 10: Guangzhou
Leg 11: Auckland, New Zealand
Final Leg: Auckland - New Orleans, US
I'm 75% sure China will be visited this season. And 100% Europe will be the first destination.

Teams:
3 F/F
3 M/M
5 M/F

Winner will be an M/M team.

A leg in Sahara Desert seems interesting!  :hearts:
And I extremely hoping for a leg in Luang Prabang!! A task in Plain of Jars is a must! :hearts:

However, two legs in Guangzhou look to overused, maybe they can visit another city, like Chengdu (panda themed task)? :duno:

I'm really hoping for another M/M team to win the race, it's been a while since season 16 when a M/M team won the race... :luvya:

I was thinking a night leg in Guangzhou, then a day leg. But your'e right though. Chengdu will be a great second China leg or Chongqing. My top China leg is Urumqi but I don't think it will ever be visited.
I am also thrilled by the thought of having a Sahara desert leg.  :lol:
And I'm also rooting for an M/M winner next season. We'll see if there'll be a likeable all male team.

The went to TAR to see if they could function as a romantic couple..Needless to say Flo found her way to a certain twin, on the other hand i'm pretty sure all the romantic feelings Zach had for Flo were crushed by her behavior on the race..

Even though the race visits India OVER and OVER again, the nation never fails to deliver some sort of great episode  :tup:

I really liked the challenges in the two India legs of TAR20, especially leg 9

that being said, basically none of those challenges were done in the crowded and chaotic streets, they were all set up in venues where like 15 people were hanging around

I love it in older TAR seasons (in India) when the challenges were set up in the crowded streets and teams were really pushed to the limit, some examples:
TAR5 Leg 9 Detour - pushing the taxi through the streets)
TAR7 Leg 8 Detour - pushing the giant elephant through the streets GRETCHEN  :hearts:
TAR13 Leg 6 Detour - Indian wedding
TAR13 Leg 7 Detour - looking for the numbers on the power lines
TAR18 Leg 7 RB - find the 'meaning of life'

Basically I wish for them to visit really crowded and chaotic places, not just India

Me too! The India legs in TAR 20 were only okay. I miss those crowded & crazy legs. I wish they visit Bangladesh more.
The chaotic hustle & bustle of the streets add more element of thrill and fun to the race.

i also wish for MORE PUBLIC TRANSPORT!!!!!!!

i understand WRP don't want filming to be spotted, but I'm only asking that they have at least ONE leg where teams have to use it
public transport in foreign countries is a challenge in itself
and it doesn't necessarily have to be used to get from place to place, they could make an RB or Detour based on public transport
TAR13 L10 Detour was pure genius, using the public transport of Moscow, i LOVED that

so PLEASE, more public transport!!
the first 15 minutes of the TAR20 finale in Japan, kind of excited me, using bus, train and ferry to get to the island! but of course another _____ equaliser stopped the fun

                    Here's two ideas.

                    One-Way/Road Closed: A team may choose to select the detour for another team. Teams may not switch to the other detour if this is assigned to them. (Pay attention to what the other teams weaknesses are)

                    No Passing Zone: (Associated with a non roadblock/detour task) Teams must await the team that arrived at the task ahead of them to complete the task before proceeding with the next part of the race even if they have completed the task.



                    More cryptic clues, new locations.

                    I do not think I would like the no passing zone because it just spreads the teams out and the positions wouldn't change that often which would get boring.

                    I see your Ireland and raise you a Hungary.

                    (I'd say Greece instead, but it's probably not a good time for them :lol:)

                    I came up with "Men At Work". Basically, it's like a Speedbump, but you post a picture of a team on a board (like a yield/Uturn) and they have to do an extra task.

                    Heres a twist i would like to see.

                    For next season the starting line should be near 2 airports which are equaliy as close to the start line(we will say Central park in NYC and the airports are JFK and Newark)

                    Teams are told that a flight departs at both airports to their first destination and both flights have a max of 7 teams on a flight but not told which flight departs or arrives first.

                    Strictly speaking, that is really not true. US Citizens can go to Cuba......they just cant spend any money without a license....same with WRP. The main obstacle is WRP has to spend money, in Cuba, to make the race.....and that is against the law. It is an economic blockade.

                    Pretty sure I haven't made a winter-related route yet, so:

                    START: Albuquerque, NM (with a starting task involving hot air ballooning).
                    Leg 1: to Fiji (also known as 'let's get the swimsuit leg done while the teams chosen for looks are still racing  :lol: )
                    Leg 2: to Bangkok, Thailand (partly for geographic convenience, partly because the legs in Bangkok aside from the one in TAR2 have been...not great, and partly to facilitate the next leg)
                    Leg 3: to Luang Prabang, Laos via Chiang Rai, Thailand (bus ride to CR along with a...RB, let's say. In my view they drive once in Laos but I could easily see another form of transport to Luang Prabang)
                    Leg 4: to Vientiane, Laos (a nice, simple, straight forward leg to explore the laid-back nature of Laos as well as to prepare teams for the next leg)
                    Leg 5: to Dunhuang, China via Urumqi, China (ideally the first clue is 'make your way to the most inland city in the world'; in general, travel to and from Dunhuang is going to be brutal, so at some point I'd have charter flights or buses or something since the location is perfect for the obligatory desert leg)
                    Leg 6: to Perth, Australia (there hasn't really been an Australian leg in the 'middle' of the race except maybe TAR2, and by that time there were only 5 teams left. Of the cities in Australia, Perth is less likely to facilitate backtracking, especially with the next destination.)
                    Leg 7: to Harare, Zimbabwe (we haven't had a real 'urban' leg in Africa since Accra in TAR 17, and Zimbabwe in general is becoming somewhat less dangerous to visit.)
                    Leg 8: to Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe (...so why not have two legs there?  :lol: A Switchback to the first tasks of TAR? Why not?)
                    Leg 9: to Swaziland via Durban, South Africa (Durban is essentially a transportation node, but since there's a decent amount to do in Durban it wouldn't be appear to be the time waster that it was  ;))
                    Leg 10: to St. Andrews, Scotland via Aberdeen, Scotland (I imagine a ride down the Scottish coast, during which point there is absolutely a golf task)
                    Leg 11: to Dover, England via Glasgow, Scotland (starting off at night with alcohol possibly involved  :jam: and ending in Kent, with a RB and/or extra task centered around the Canterbury Tales since they love 'themed' legs in the UK)
                    Leg 12: to Denali National Park, AK via Anchorage, AK (most of the winter finales end in a warm city for obvious reasons; I'd like to see at least one full final leg be ran within a wintery climate. Plus, a finish in the remote national park allows for self driving so that viewers can quit complaining about cursed taxis)

                    "5 continents, (11 countries with 4 new), 22 cities, 38,000 miles, (insert team I can only tolerate slightly) you've won the Amazing Race!"

                    2 Mexico to Bogota, Colobmia
                    3 Colobmia to Lima, Peru to La Paz, Bolovia (double leg)
                    4 Bolovia to North Brazil
                    5 Brazil to Spain
                    6 Spain to Libya(of course when everything clears up)
                    7 Libya to Finland

                    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                    I have an idea for a final task if Washington, D.C was final city.

                    Teams must travel to the embasy of each countries visted durring the race and collect a mini flag then at the finsh line they have to arange them in order.

                    This is my ideal itinerary for the Race:

                    Leg 1: US (Philadelphia)-Philippines (Manila)
                    Leg 2: Philippines (Baguio or Cebu, because Americans are not allowed or cautioned in going to Mindanao.)
                    Leg 3: Philippines - Singapore
                    Leg 4: Singapore - Qatar
                    Leg 5: Qatar - South Africa (Johannesburg)
                    Leg 6: South Africa (Cape Town)
                    Leg 7: Denmark (Aarhus)
                    Leg 8: Denmark - United Kingdom (prolly Cardiff or Swansea but definitely in the Wales area because they haven't been there before.)
                    Leg 9: United Kingdom - Spain (Barcelona)
                    Leg 10: Spain (Madrid or if they want, The Canary Islands!)
                    Leg 11: Spain - Uruguay (Montevideo)
                    Leg 12: Uruguay - US (Dallas)

                    I really want the Race to be back in the Philippines.   :(

                    But to keep up with those that has themes, I propose the following route that has the FIFA World Cup hosts theme:

                    Leg 1: US (Pontiac Silverdome, which hosted the first match) - Mexico (Mexico City, Estadio Azteca)
                    Leg 2: Mexico - Brazil (Rio de Janeiro, Maracana)
                    Leg 3: Brazil - Uruguay (Montevideo, Estadio Centenario)
                    Leg 4: Uruguay - Argentina (Buenos Aires, Estadio Monumental)
                    Leg 5: Argentina - South Africa (Johannesburg, Soccer City)
                    Leg 6: South Africa - Spain (Madrid, Bernabeu)
                    Leg 7: Spain - United Kingdom (London, Wembley)
                    Leg 8: United Kingdom - Switzerland (Bern, Wankdorf Stadium)
                    Leg 9: Switzerland - Sweden (Stockholm, Rasunda)
                    Leg 10: Sweden - South Korea (Daegu, Daegu WC Stadium)
                    Leg 11: South Korea - Japan (Yokohama, Yokohama International)
                    Leg 12: Japan - US (Pasadena, Rose Bowl)

                    Isn't it cute? A different country per leg?

                    I have been working on this for a while! :gaah: I hope it came out good. I think this would be good for TAR 22.

                    Leg 1: Salzburg, Austria (11-10)
                    Leg 2: Wroclow, Poland (10-9)
                    Leg 3: Poland (Rural Leg) (9-8)
                    Leg 4: Busan, South Korea (8-7) (Double U-Turn :lol:)
                    Leg 5: Angkor, Cambodia (NEL) (Fast Forword)
                    Leg 6: Christchurch, New Zealand (7-6)
                    Leg 7: Apai, Samoa (6-5) (fast forward)
                    Leg 8: Florianopolis, Brazil (DOUBLE LEG)
                    Leg 9: Florianopolis, Brazil (5-4) (Double u-Turn  :lol:)
                    Leg 10: Cusco/Machu Picchu, Peru (4-3)
                    Leg 11: Guatemala City, Guatemala (NEL)
                    Leg 12: Houston, USA (3-1)

                    About the final 3 non-elimination: I figure that in the winter editions of TAR, there will have to be a 2 hour finale to make up for the week lost for the Country Music Awards. Why not have there be three teams? Also, I think it would be interesting to see a team perform a speed bump in the final leg. :)

                    Leg 2: Finland - Latvia (Riga)
                    Leg 3: Latvia - Greece (Greek Islands)
                    Leg 4: Greece - Morocco (1/2 Desert, 1/2 Marrakesh)
                    Leg 5: Morocco - South Africa (Cape Town)
                    Leg 6: South Africa ('Wildlife leg')

                    Leg 12: China - Canada - USA (Vancouver, ending in Point Roberts, Washington)

                    A combination of new countries (Laos, Qatar, Latvia) and countries that haven't been seen in a while (Canada <3, New Zealand, South Africa, Morocco, Finland). And, in all fairness, Beijing hasn't been visited for a while, TAR14 I believe.

                    I love legs that take place in the city on foot and I want them to visit Andorra. Put them together: an on-foot leg that goes around Andorra la Vella.

                    How about a race with returning racers - however composed of a team that is composed of 1 winner & 1 11th/12th place finisher.

                    Ex:
                    Rob & Anna [from season 1]

                    lol it'd be interesting.

                    Please send a few legs in Africa.
                    Been eons since they featured more than one African nation per season. Last was season 12!

                    Also Africa as the 1st destination would be great!
                    Not since season 1!


                    Please spend 4-5 legs in Africa!

                    I think this would be the best line-up for a cast:
                    4 F/F
                    4 M/M
                    3 M/F
                    There would be an equal number of men and women  :tup:
                    HOWEVER WRP has something against F/F teams (except when they want them to win), so this line-up would be good enough:
                    3 F/F
                    4 M/M
                    4 M/M
                    They did this line-up in TAR20, which I think had a great cast (which was marred by the boot order  (:;))

                    This would be my preferable line-up (lets be realistic here):
                    F/F
                    - Mother/Daughter (haven't seen one since Andie and Jenna)
                    - Hairdressers (TAR Australia had the first, and they were awesome)
                    - young athletic female team bonded by a profession or special friendship (something NEW like Party Planners, Roller Derby Players, Exchange Sisters, women in the army, Zookeepers/Vets you name it!)

                    M/M
                    - Cousins (never seen M/M cousins)
                    - Grandfather/grandson (enjoyed watching Nicholas and Donald  :))
                    - Gay couple (older, more like Ron and Bill or the Guidos)
                    - two good friends, any age (like Mark and Bopper or Roommates like Gary and Dave) OR Single Dads

                    M/F
                    - Married elderly couple (the likes of Bill and Cathi, Meredith and Gretchen, Anita and Arthur  :luvya:)
                    - Twins (agree with chal_uf, and I like sibling teams, and twins are twice the fun)
                    - Separated/Formerly Dating (we need our dysfunctional couple every season, I loved watching Tara and Wil)
                    - young nice athletic couple (these teams always get picked and tend to go far, make sure they are LIKEABLE, Meghan and Cheyne etc)

                    Starting Points

                    How about Houston TX at the old Astrodome, or Texan Stadium.
                    Across town to IAH lots of flights.

                    Or Dallas, TX from Southfork home of the fictional Ewings.
                    Or Fort Worth Stockyards.
                    DFW in the vicinity.

                    Atlanta, GA too.

                    About the twists

                    How about changing the rules of the detour: no more situations that in the detour everybody is going for only one task, with the detour the rules would be that Detour A can be made by x teams, and Detour B can be made by y teams [and of course not every leg the detours could be split fairly that for example when we have 6 teams the splitting could be 3 teams per detour A and 3 per Detour B, could also be 1-5, 2-4 splitting].. And to make things more interesting every team from the beginning of the race could have the ability to pull one team from the detour and force them to do another one. [And of course this could happen only once per one team].

                    I like that detour idea. Maybe when a team reaches the detour place, they'll have to put a sticker of their team's pic in a board to let other teams know. And this could lead to a potential waste of time to other team when the reached a detour task that is already full.

                    I think that's simply stupid and unnecesarry.

                    4x400 relay Ethiopia roadblock before they went to SL

                    It wasn't that Leg's RB - the RB was in Sri Lanka not in Ethiopia -. They were part of the relay to obtain their next clue (travel to Colombo, Sri Lanka). That was the 11th. leg of TAR 6.

                    Notes:
                    - Starting Line city would be San Francisco, then teams would race to Vladivostok which is also known as the 'San Francisco of Russia'  ;)
                    - Denpasar is way overdue
                    - 3 countries in Leg 10 is very hectic, but achievable. The Detour would be in Barcelona, RB in Andorra, and Pit Stop in Midi Pyrenees :)

                    I would love an Andorra la Vella leg that is entirely on foot. The city is small enough it should be possible.

                    THIS!!!
                    They should do that for season 22, since because of the Country Music Awards, they air legs 11 and 12 at the same time :)

                    Leg 1 - Russia (Vladivostok)
                    Leg 2 - Indonesia (Denpasar)
                    Leg 3 - Sri Lanka (Negombo)
                    Leg 4 - Uzbekistan (Samarkand)

                    Leg 6 - Benin (Abomey-Calavi/Ganvie)
                    Leg 7 - Morocco (Casablanca)
                    Leg 8 - Morocco/Spain (Tangier/Madrid) TBC
                    Leg 9 - Spain (Toledo)
                    Leg 10 - Spain/Andorra/France (Barcelona/Andorra/Midi-Pyrenees)
                    Leg 11 - Peru (Lake Titicaca) NEL
                    Leg 12 - United States (Salt Lake City)

                    Notes:
                    - Starting Line city would be San Francisco, then teams would race to Vladivostok which is also known as the 'San Francisco of Russia'  ;)
                    - Denpasar is way overdue
                    - 3 countries in Leg 10 is very hectic, but achievable. The Detour would be in Barcelona, RB in Andorra, and Pit Stop in Midi Pyrenees :)
                    - I think it would be VERY interesting to see a Speed Bump in the final Leg... who's with me?

                    NO. That would suck. Since there are almost never HOO's in a Final Leg, the Speed Bumped team would be basically screwed.

                    Not neccesarily. Ernie and Cindy would have still won with a speed bump. Dan and Jordan might have (:;).
                    And besides, I would love to see a team all casual at the mat, thinking its an obvious final 4 non-elimination, then find out they are eliminated :lol3:

                    Very interesting route! I always want to see Russia in the first leg. :hearts:

                    I'm happy your 100th post is about me! :lol:

                    I'm glad you guys like it! If I can get around to it, I'll create a Wiki page with the whole design of the race so you can see what happens :)
                    Kamineko, I have changed the Indonesia Leg to South Kalimantan just for you :)
                    and I think a Speed Bump in the Final Leg would be fine, as long as it was the first challenge and there was a difficult challenge right after it :tup:

                    Here's a map for those who prefer visuals! (I don't know why I highlighted Netherlands as visited, my bad!)
                    Thank you... That's so nice of you. :hrt: You even changed your route just for me... :-[

                    Anyway, I just wonder, how did you create a map like that? Where did you get the blank map? I always want to make a map like that, but I can't find the blank one... :duno:

                    Hi guys!

                    I am going to ask that if you MUST use a map, that you resize it to no more than 640 X 480, okay? We need all pages loading smoothly and quickly for everyone, and a lot of large maps in the wishlist thread are going to slow things down.

                    Thanks!

                    I also hope for a start or finish some day in Texas, (or even a visit)
                    Houston is one the five biggest cities in the USA.
                    We also got Dallas, San Antonio, and Austin, all over a million.

                    At least 2 U-turns a season (was 1 of them unaired last season?). Bring back the Blind U-Turn :hrt:. I wouldn't mind having only 2 Fast Forwards a season if it means there can be 2 U-Turns.

                    Oops! I forgot about tar 5 finishing in Dallas/ Fort Worth.
                    Colin and Christie were from Texas also.
                    I think a special season could have previous season racers greeting current racers at each pit stop.
                    Just a thought.

                    I want a final roadblock in which that person must put magnets with names of countries on it onto a magnetic world map. When all countries are placed in the CORRECT spot, they will get their next clue.

                    I keep seeing these route wishlists on here - which is great - that's what the forum is for.

                    But it all seems so random and IMHO most of the routes posted are logistically impossible to complete in 23 days.

                    How about upping the ante around here?
                    When you post a route, also include transportation possibilities, like which flight or train they use to get from city to city. Make sure when you're planning you leave time for Phil to get ahead of the racers. And don't forget to give the racers and crew some time to sleep.

                    I think most of us just create them for fun and don't have so much time to include transportation choices.

                    Not bad - but where did the race begin?  :duno:

                    Los Angeles? Great - lots of flights available, but in order to get to Busan and run a leg on the 31st in daylight  they would have to take a flight leaving LA around midnight/1 am on the 30th which means that would actually have to start on the 29th.

                    Not meaning to be critical - I just love to see details and well thought out routes that can actually be done in 23 days.
                    Pretend you're World Race Production's travel coordinator and actually have to book flights.

                    If they ever do a leg in my hometown (Liverpool, UK), I'd love to see this as a route as I think it would properly show the city well...

                    (Wherever) to Liverpool, England, United Kingdom (John Lennon International Airport) (late night arrival)

                    Speke (Speke Hall) (RI Task involving supposed hauntings)

                    Allerton (Calderstones Park) (HoO) (Detour: Serve It Up (performed in Calderstones Park) or Tee It Off (performed in Allerton Park Golf Course)) (opportunity for U-Turn if desired due to distances between them)

                    Aigburth (Otterspool Promenade)

                    Liverpool (Echo Arena) (RB Beatles-themed)

                    Liverpool (Albert Dock) (RI Task nautically related to find the next pit stop)

                    Liverpool (Royal Liver Building) (PIT STOP)

                    Thoughts?

                    Route:

                    Leg 1: Virginia Beach, Virginia --> Cancun, Mexico
                    Leg 2: Cancun --> Cusco, Peru
                    Leg 3: Cusco --> Djanet, Algeria
                    Leg 4: Djanet -->Dubai
                    Leg 5: Dubai --> Prague, Czech Republic

                    Leg 13: Yakutsk --> Tacoma, Washington

                    I know I may have 1 too many legs, but whatever. That would be my dream route...but I'm pretty sure everyone wants TAR to go to Antarctica. Omg. Sledding down a freakin mountain in antarctica.  :yess:


                    Twists: I got nothing. Ill try to think.


                    Teams: More family teams! I love father/daughter and brother/sister teams!


                    Tasks: Well sledding down an antarctican mountain of course! But the scarier the task the better for me. Lol, guess they are gonna have to do a space jump!  :lol3: just kidding. But the bungee swing in Nepal would be cool. Another luck determined task would be cool, except harder than the hay bails.

                    The purpose of a U-Turn is NOT to eliminate the team! As Phil says, its purpose is to push a team BEHIND, which in most cases it eliminates the team.

                     :hello2: everyone! I want to add one of my TAR route wishlists on here:

                    Leg 1 (USA --> Chile) / San Diego, CA to Santiago
                    * Starting Line task: Coronado Naval Base (Row raft in S.D. Bay, find clues w/ plane tickets)
                    Leg 2 (Chile --> Venezuela) / Caracas & El Avila National Park
                    Leg 3 (Venezuela) / Los Roques archipelago by assigned race ferries
                    Leg 4 (Venezuela --> France) / Paris & Dijon + Besancon area
                    Leg 5 (France --> Germany) / Stuttgart area... like in s16's mystery dest. bus
                    Leg 6 (Germany --> Algeria) / Algiers
                    Leg 7 (Algeria) / Atlas Mountains
                    Leg 8 (Algeria --> Kenya) / Nairobi
                    Leg 9 (Kenya --> Thailand) / Bangkok
                    Leg 10 (Thailand) / Kota Kinabalu
                    Leg 11 (Thailand --> Philippines) / Manila + Quezon City
                    Leg 12 (Philippines --> USA) / San Diego, CA
                    * Finish Line: Hotel del Coronado (yes, 'haunted' Kate Morgan hotel)

                    Looks similar to s16's route, but I would :hrt: this route.

                    Come on..instead of keep reusing the same recently visited countries they should make a route of countries they haven't used in ages! At least that would've take a bit of the disappointment of not having at least one new country. Give Kenya, Finland, Ukraine, Ecuador, Jamaica, Canada, Hungary, and a bunch of other barely-visited countries a chance.
                    Yes, i know China and India have a lot to offer, but seriously they need a rest. They're beautiful countries on their own but there is a lot other cultures too see. I'm enjoying the season so far, but they could have change China for the Philippines and Bangladesh for Sri Lanka.
                    Turkey and Spain, and to a extent France are the only countries that kinda save the route.

                    So if they repeat the no-new country route i hope they create and interesting route.

                    I had an 2 ideas.

                    My first one is just evil. 2 races will begin and run at the same time as each other. None of the teams will know that there is another race being run.  When each race has 4-6 teams left (both races need to have the same amount) the 2 race will merge and reset and the race will continue as normal. The twist would work espicaly well in special all star season with the 1st race being a TARUS all stars while the seacond race will be a International all stars season.
                    The 1st race will be hosted by Phil and 2nd race being hosted by either Alian Wu (who is the second most experenced TAR host with 7 seasons hosted; 4 TARA, 3 TARCR) or Grant Bowler(a fellow New Zealander of Phil and host of TARAU). When the two races merge Phil will continue to host solo or co-host with the second host.

                    Another twist (which isn't evil)is races that could be based on historical events or people in history.
                    Example: A silk road (which at some records say travels from Rome, Italy to Japan) based race will go from Italy thought Greace,Turkey,Egypt and the Middle East. Then onwards to India and China to Japan.

                    The first idea is, frankly, horrible. The people from the US don't care at all for the Intl-TAR versions and I highly doubt people from Australia would care much about TARCR, TARA, TARP, TARI, TARV, TARU, TARN, TARLA or TARF and ditto from other places hosting TAR versions. And also, supposedly a team from TARLA is a Lumelia and extremely popular, however they only speak Spanish. When they get casted for this AS, the language barrier will stop them interacting with other teams and also with the non-Spanish viewers. This will be extremely annoying for the viewers that don't speak Spanish because I'm pretty sure that they don't really want to watch some Spanish speaking people surrounded by English speaking people especially like somewhere in Australia where practically nobody speaks Spanish.

                    The second idea is much better and I like the idea of themed races. The only problem is: how to incorporate the US into this. It's pretty pointless for a TAR to not start in its home country/region. And also countries along themed races are generally very similar (the reason why TAR doesn't spend too much time in each region) ie Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, both along the Silk Road.

                    Ok say that all the team speak English for the 1st idea, would that make it better or maybe race 1 is a regular race and race 2 an all star race.

                    What???!!!!!

                    First, your statement sounds exactly like Jaime saying that China sucks just because of the language barrier. And is also childish; specially when there's a lot of ways to learn languages (ask Cindy and Ernie next time they chat with us about they're preparation for TAR19) to solve this fact.  I'm a native spanish speaker, but I also learned English in my school years - and French, but the basics of it -; so if aussies don't learn to speak Spahish as we do with the English during elementary and high school, it's not our problem, it's yours. 

                    Second, for the rest of your reasoning, totally agree with you.

                    Another route:

                    Leg 1: USA (Los Angeles) - New Zealand (Auckland)
                    Leg 2: New Zealand - Laos (Vientiane)
                    Leg 3: Laos (Pakse)
                    Leg 4: Laos - Vietnam (Hanoi)
                    Leg 5: Vietnam - India (Delhi -Chandigarh)
                    Leg 6: India (Shimla)
                    Leg 7: India - Jordan (Amman, Petra)
                    Leg 8: Jordan - Finland (Helsinki)
                    Leg 9: Finland - Morocco (Rabat)
                    Leg 10: Morocco (Rural leg)
                    Leg 11: Morocco - France (Nice)
                    Leg 12: Morocco - USA

                    Hmmm... I like the routing, but it's more like a revision of season 10.

                    One thing I would change for TAR routing is the Chile & Argentina pairing. I just don't like it whenever they travel to Chile, the route just has to go to Argentina.  :groan:

                    About themed races, I have to say that this reminds me a lot to Pekin Express. They have made some routes like the Dragon Route, something in South America, Africa Routes, there are enty of them. I just find them quite straightforward and with few transportation choices (if we thi pplaces are close to each other, is it feasible to take flights between them??)

                    I personally like Japan, I think BeNeLux could work sometime soon, there's a long time since Finland was last visited, I think Egypt also needs a visit, as well as some Arabian country (Arabian peninsula, that is), or Suthern India (rural, please).

                    Something like US to Central America, to Netherlands to Luxembourg to Finland to Egypt, to Qatar, Sri Lanka, somewhere else and Japan would definitely call my attention 100%.

                    Like the Caribbean, then Finland then Egypt... Then Japan, maybe Canada and US. Love climatic changes sooo much.

                    The first idea is, frankly, horrible. The people from the US don't care at all for the Intl-TAR versions and I highly doubt people from Australia would care much about TARCR, TARA, TARP, TARI, TARV, TARU, TARN, TARLA or TARF and ditto from other places hosting TAR versions. And also, supposedly a team from TARLA is a Lumelia and extremely popular, however they only speak Spanish. When they get casted for this AS, the language barrier will stop them interacting with other teams and also with the non-Spanish viewers. This will be extremely annoying for the viewers that don't speak Spanish because I'm pretty sure that they don't really want to watch some Spanish speaking people surrounded by English speaking people especially like somewhere in Australia where practically nobody speaks Spanish.

                    The second idea is much better and I like the idea of themed races. The only problem is: how to incorporate the US into this. It's pretty pointless for a TAR to not start in its home country/region. And also countries along themed races are generally very similar (the reason why TAR doesn't spend too much time in each region) ie Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, both along the Silk Road.

                    What???!!!!!

                    First, your statement sounds exactly like Jaime saying that China sucks just because of the language barrier. And is also childish; specially when there's a lot of ways to learn languages (ask Cindy and Ernie next time they chat with us about they're preparation for TAR19) to solve this fact.  I'm a native spanish speaker, but I also learned English in my school years - and French, but the basics of it -; so if aussies don't learn to speak Spahish as we do with the English during elementary and high school, it's not our problem, it's yours. 

                    Second, for the rest of your reasoning, totally agree with you.

                    Yes, that's the point, it's our problem. 7 (The channel that airs TAR here) is not going to want to import a TAR edition full of teams that are speaking Chinese or French or Hebrew or Norwegian because they're a) cheapo and b) frankly, for the exact same amount that the average TARLA viewer cares about TARI: NOTHING.

                    My route to TAR 22

                    2 races will begin and run at the same time as each other. None of the teams will know that there is another race being run.  When each race has 4-6 teams left (both races need to have the same amount) the 2 race will merge and reset and the race will continue as normal. The twist would work espicaly well in special all star season with the 1st race being a TARUS all stars while the seacond race will be a International all stars season.
                    The 1st race will be hosted by Phil and 2nd race being hosted by either Alian Wu (who is the second most experenced TAR host with 7 seasons hosted; 4 TARA, 3 TARCR) or Grant Bowler(a fellow New Zealander of Phil and host of TARAU). When the two races merge Phil will continue to host solo or co-host with the second host.


                    I'm sorry but I really don't like this idea. If TARUS merged with TARA halfway through, most viewers would want all the teams not from their country out first. I would at least. It isn't like I don't like Asians. But if you get to know all these teams and suddenly a bunch of teams you know nothing about are thrown in, it would be...well...not fun if one of them won. most people from the USA really don't care about who wins TARA. But if someone from TARA wins our version of the show, it would suck. Just like the all-star idea being thrown around for a while with 6 USA teams and 6 from other versions, the average viewer wouldn't know 6 teams and therefore, it wouldn't be much of an all stars season.

                    I would really love them to do 2 themed legs in Japan.

                    First would be a modern pop culture leg in Tokyo. A roadblock could be about animes, mangas or personally I think Pokemons would be super fun. A detour in Harajuku involving the gyarus or a choice between JPOP or JROCK.

                    Second leg would be a cultural one. Lots of choices to choose but Kyoto would be the ultimate. A drinking game with a maiko or dress up as a geisha, hah but this would be really weird. Maybe a creepy Halloween tasks involving Japanese ghosts or demons or Yokai as we call it.

                    Nice route. We never got to see that much of Ecuador in all-stars.  :yess: No more Brazil and India though. We're basically emptied out of creative tasks in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. And I'm taking a break of India for now. South Korea is a cool first destination.

                    Its a awesome route (Laos is a must for TAR22). But good luck going to Libya (after their revilution, they are still rebuilding their country, maybe in a couple of seasons),Greece (with their ecomomic issues), Iran (I'm pretty sure the US and Israel arnt realy friends with Iran right now) and N.Korea(come on it's N.Korea, do I need a better reson)

                    5. Cousins (manipulative, but funny)

                    M/M
                    1. Father & Son (army dad and reunited jock son) :hearts:
                    2. Lifelong friends (friends that they can finish each other's sentences)
                    3. Chefs (epic like Jet & Cord) :hearts:

                    F/F

                    This is not a wish list thread. :tup:

                    I know, but it's a possible cast. I do sense another granny team again since the last two grannies TAR had was Peggy & Claire (season 2) and they depended mostly on luck to keep them in the race like Kaylani & Lisa. Maybe they want to spruce up the race this season to make it look like a surprise cast with all interesting relationships. It is season 22. ;)

                    Watching the campaign 2012 special hoping there will be a rare moment of TAR promos. I just have this feeling...

                    CBS Evening News host sounded like Phil with his campaign introduction. "50 states, 2 candidates, this is... Campaign 2012!" and then it cuts to special intro.  :lol:

                    But she's not even that old! She's the same age as Amy from this season! Flo was born berfore her! (Not mad at you, just at TARAus and at plastic surgery)





                    As for wishes for the show, I want to see Spain again. There has never been a full leg there. When are we going to get Spain? The show has had more legs in Indonesia, and the first time they went there was season 19.

                    For me, the main wish I have is for more unpredictability - I can usually tell when watching a given new episode which team will be last - even when I don't spoil myself!

                    Also, fewer "staged" tasks - tasks where production has to set up a huge carnival-like thing with tents and costumes and all. (Sorry, that's just the best way I can think of to describe it. An example would be TAR 16 Leg 5 - the whole leg took place in an empty field where a big battle scene was just set up! It wasn't even really there in the first place!) There has been way too much of this since TAR 14 in my view. I want to see real places and tasks, not fake ones that could just be set up in Los Angeles! We don't need to go all the way to China to set up a fake Chinatown! :lol:

                    (Note: I am only assuming that this has continued from TAR 17 to the present as I haven't watched those ones.)

                    Didn't know where to post this, but since it's some "wish" of mine, I guess it fits in here:

                    TAR should have more night legs, and stop purposely making HoO to have teams race in the daylight.

                    I don't know, seems like back then legs were tougher (obviously…), tough enough to have teams race until dusk. It's also an interesting feat to see whatever location they're at in both day and night. (Imagine they didn't make TAR20 racers wait until sunrise for their clue in Japan, that leg would've been beautiful.)

                    Just a fan of night legs  :-[

                    Here is a route from me:

                    Leg 1: USA (Los Angeles) - Canada (Toronto)

                    Los Angeles (Los Angeles International Airport) to Toronto, Canada (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/c/cf/Flag_of_Canada.svg/22px-Flag_of_Canada.svg.png)  (Toronto Pearson International Airport)
                    Toronto (Yonge-Dundas Square)
                    Toronto (CN Tower) (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/c3/RBlock.png/15px-RBlock.png)
                    Toronto (Scarborough Bluffs) (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/cd/Detour.png/15px-Detour.png)
                    Toronto (House of Flags & Banners)
                    Toronto (Casa Loma) (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/5b/TAR-pitstop-icon.png/40px-TAR-pitstop-icon.png)
                    *At Yonge-Dundas Square teams had to search the screens for their next clue (CN Tower with a flag background)
                    *Roadblock One member has to climb the entire set of stairs to the top to retrieve clue.
                    *Detour Climb or Cycle. Climb teams descend the cliff to their clue while Cycle teams had to bike the 1km course to get their clue
                    *At the House of Flags teams have to identify all 13 provincial and territory flags to get their next clue.

                    sry but that would be a trainwreck leg  :(

                    Here's a unique route plan for another Chilean start (save it for season 25 or later. :tup:)

                    Leg 1: (United States --> Chile)
                    Starting Line - Boulder City, Nevada, U.S. (Lake Mead Marina)
                    • Las Vegas (McCarran Int'l Airport) to Santiago, Chile (Comodoro Arturo Merino Benitez Int'l Airport)
                    • Santiago (Estadio Pudahuel) (DETOUR: Drill Kicks/Drill Teams)
                    • Quilicura, Santiago (Punto Maestro Construcción)
                    • Quilicura, Santiago (Sign Shop) (ROADBLOCK: "Who points you in the right direction?")
                    • Santiago (Palacio de la Moneda) (PIT STOP :wohoo:)

                    START LINE TASK: Locate jet ski keys in one of 50 speedboats in the marina and ride a pair of jet skis to marked vehicles on the other side of the lake to drive to McCarran Int'l Airport purchasing flights to Santiago.

                    DETOUR: In Drill Kicks, teams must work together to pass the ball to each other around cones to the satisfaction of the soccer (fútbol) coach and score a total of 3 goals to get your clue. In Drill Teams, teams must participate in an intense soccer training workout (which makes no sense :lol:) by individually pulling a weight sled across the width of the field. After getting to the other side, teams must indivdually add a 100 lbs. barbell weight onto their own sled and drag the sled back to the starting position to get your next clue.

                    ROADBLOCK: Construct an accurate arrow signpost using the materials and tools brought from the previous task and a simple map. (Similar to Charla/Mirna's sign freakout in all-stars task :hearts:)
                    ---------------------------------
                    • Additional task:
                     *At Punto Maestro, teams must carry a 5-meter long wooden pole, a large box of signs, and heavy duty tools to a local sign shop.

                    I was thinking of a route that goes in alphabetical order, and without crossing the international date-line.

                    Leg 1 - Austin, Texas (starting line) - Bremen, Germany
                    Leg 2 - Chisinau, Moldova
                    Leg 3 - Davos, Switzerland
                    Leg 4 - Edinburgh, UK
                    Leg 5 - Fuzhou, China
                    Leg 6 - (by train to) Guangzhou, China
                    Leg 7 - Hakodate, Japan
                    Leg 8 - Incheon, South Korea - (drive to Busan, and take a ferry to) Jeju Island, South Korea
                    Leg 9 - (fly to Darwin and drive to) Kakadu, Australia
                    Leg 10 - Lusaka, Zambia
                    Leg 11 - Mbababe, Swaziland
                    Leg 12 - (Drive or take a bus to Johannesburg, and fly to) Nashville, Tennessee (finish line)

                    Climbing those few thousand steps would make the task the most physically grueling ever for those unlucky souls.  :tantrum And after that they will have to engage in more physical climbing/cycling.

                    Hi guys!

                    I am going to ask that if you MUST use a map, that you resize it to no more than 640 X 480, okay? We need all pages loading smoothly and quickly for everyone, and a lot of large maps in the wishlist thread are going to slow things down.

                    Thanks!

                    Here is a route from me:

                    Leg 1: USA (Los Angeles) - Canada (Toronto)

                    Los Angeles (Los Angeles International Airport) to Toronto, Canada (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/c/cf/Flag_of_Canada.svg/22px-Flag_of_Canada.svg.png)  (Toronto Pearson International Airport)
                    Toronto (Yonge-Dundas Square)
                    Toronto (CN Tower) (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/c3/RBlock.png/15px-RBlock.png)
                    Toronto (Scarborough Bluffs) (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/cd/Detour.png/15px-Detour.png)
                    Toronto (House of Flags & Banners)
                    Toronto (Casa Loma) (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/5/5b/TAR-pitstop-icon.png/40px-TAR-pitstop-icon.png)
                    *At Yonge-Dundas Square teams had to search the screens for their next clue (CN Tower with a flag background)
                    *Roadblock One member has to climb the entire set of stairs to the top to retrieve clue.
                    *Detour Climb or Cycle. Climb teams descend the cliff to their clue while Cycle teams had to bike the 1km course to get their clue
                    *At the House of Flags teams have to identify all 13 provincial and territory flags to get their next clue.

                    sry but that would be a trainwreck leg  :(

                    Why!?

                    theres more to canada than climbing a staircase

                     :cmastree Here's my long, Christmas-y wishlist for a nicer TAR Canada route: :cmastree

                    Leg 1 (Canada --> Bahamas) / Toronto [Leslie Street Spit] to Nassau
                    ROADBLOCK IDEA at Paradise Island Lagoon: paddle using your hands on a life preserver to the bridge where you must attach rappel devices onto your waist and rappel yourself up to get your clue on the arch and rappel back down onto your lifebuoy and row to the starting point of the RB. Anytime you fall off, you must swim back to the side you were previously on.

                    Leg 2 (Bahamas --> Cuba) / to Havana
                    ROADBLOCK IDEA at Plaza de la Revolucion: Graffiti art RB

                    Leg 3 (Cuba --> Italy) / to Rome
                    ROUTE INFO IDEA at Ara Pacis: (When in Rome... :lol:) Transport 100 small plaster tiles using a stallion-drawn mini-cart through the crazy streets of Rome up the Spanish Steps to receive your next clue.
                    ROADBLOCK IDEA at Spanish Steps: Using the plaster tiles from the previous task, one team member has to complete a ground mosaic by using the tiles like puzzle pieces. Any tiles missing will need to be brought to the Roadblock location on foot by going back to Ara Pacis and collecting the tiles needed to complete the mosaic. Once approved, teams will get their clue.

                    Leg 4 (Italy) / train to Gaiole in Chianti, Tuscany for vineyard tasks and Barbischio castle wedding reception setup task

                    Leg 5 (Italy --> Hungary) / to Budapest and Viségrad
                    ROUTE INFO IDEA: Teams must bid for their next clue at an auctionhouse against other teams and local "bidders".

                    Leg 6 (Hungary --> Slovakia) / train to Kosiçe and famous ice caves as the Pit Stop

                    Leg 7 (Slovakia --> Qatar) / to Doha [SUPERLEG ANYONE? :xmas49]
                    DETOUR IDEA at Dhow Harbour: [Stack It or Make It] "Stack It" had teams direct a dhow driver to the nearby flour factory and stack 100 flour bags onto the dhow (which can slow the dhow down) and trasnport them to a shoreside shack on the northwest coastline to receive their clue. In Make It, teams had to direct their dhow driver to an island where teams must complete mending 5 "oil" umbrellas by painting them a crude oil color. After painting, they must transport the umbrellas to a nearby enrichment centre to get their next clue.

                    Leg 8 (Qatar --> China) / to Lhasa, Tibet Region with numerous yak agriculture tasks in villages

                    Leg 9 (China) / to Beijing :groan:... just for a "pin"ful acupuncture session :cmas27 and then bus to Harbin for ice sculpture task
                    DETOUR IDEA at a local bakery: [Fold or Deliver] "Fold" made teams properly create 100 zongzis (25 each filled with either pork, chicken, bean paste, or Chinese five sauce) to get their clue. In Deliver, teams must deliver take-out boxes to 3 different addresses (all written in Mandarin Chinese) by riding basket-storage bikes. After delivering them and returning to the bakery, teams need to have receipts for proof of delivery to get their clue.

                    Leg 10 (China --> United States) / to San Francisco and Alcatraz Island
                    ROADBLOCK IDEA on Alcatraz Island: Team members must figure out the three cells Al Capone stayed in using the cell # history hidden somewhere in the jail cells in a mysterious diary. They must go to the lighthouse and open a safe by dialing the last number of each cell number in chronological order by year. Once unlocking the safe, the next clue will be revealed.
                    ROUTE INFO IDEA at Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory: Eat through as many fortune cookies for a fortune containing the information of the next Pit Stop.

                    Leg 11 FINAL LEG (United States --> Canada) / to Calgary, Alberta and Banff National Park as Finish Line.
