I'll do it.  :tup:

For tonight's episode i'm going with El_Chileno, i think it's NEL and we'll see Ale & Eze or Rosy & Monica in last place and with a Speed Bump for the next leg. I think the winner of the leg is between Felipe & Alejandro and Demi & Maxi. Do you remember when Harris posted the team's order for the airport?, those 2 teams were at the top.

http://www.lapatilla.com/site/2011/09/23/22-personas-comienzan-un-extremo-periplo-por-latinoamerica-en-the-amazing-race/

It says that the distance traveled from the starting line to the finish line is 11.000 km.

If that's the case i don't think we are going to see Central America or Mexico this season.

But in this publication: http://impreso.milenio.com/node/9029824

it says 23.000 kilometres and 11 cities visited, which one do we have to trust?

Also, we should talk about it on the Spoilers page, and talk only about what we see on TV  in this page!

Probably the funniest pit stop ever... sadly, it's also the worst intro ever.
Title: Re: TAR: Latin America SHOW Discussion! Leg 1 starts p.1
Post by: GonzaloChileno on September 25, 2011, 08:07:57 PM
The leg wasn't what i expected it to be, but it was a good episode overall.

Teams i like:
*Nicolás & Cristóbal
*Toya & Juan del Mar
*Mónica & Rosy
*Rick & Kathy

Teams i dislike:
*NONE


The leg was too short compared to previous starting legs, but i think it will be a good season. What i liked is the introduction of the Express Pass and that it was a double lenght leg and there was a speed bump for the last team too, it was cool.

This was such a funny pit stop and the footrace for last was awesome, the bad thing is that there wasn't a NEXT TIME ON THE AMAZING RACE... Agree with one of the WORST INTROS EVER!

I have to say this was faaar better than the premiere of the second season. Yeah it's low budget but the editing was wayyy better and the cast is interesting. The only problem i have is that the tasks were very physical.

I don't like that the venezuelan girls have to do a Speed Bump. The cowboys and the goths last season are the perfect example, they got last but without having to do a Speed Bump the next leg. The producers made a weird hybrid penalty.

I like it. It makes it seem more like two seperate legs with no break in between. I don't like how it's the first leg, because these new racers don't know what to expect as opposed to the returning racers who were surprised to keep racing.

I've never seen a teflon pitstop mat before.

I didn't like it either. They shouldn't have been penalized since this wasn't a pitstop. Nobody got penalized in the previous 2 seasons when they arrived last in the 12nd episode. On Facebook, a supposed producer gave a very lame response to that saying there weren't speed bumps because it was the final and they wanted all 3 teams to stay close from each other.

First of all, i don't think we are talking about the same kind of leg.

On seasons 1 & 2, it were double-lenght legs, last team to arrive on a double lenght leg is never eliminated, or penalised or something, it was one leg divided in two parts. And on season 3 it was a no-break leg, two different legs without a break between them, and since they are two separate legs, they can either don't penalize the teams, give them a speed bump or even eliminate them.

Honestly, I can't see the difference between what you call "double lenght legs" and "no-break leg". They looked pretty much the same to me. They kept running, received clues and Harry stated it wasn't a pitstop.

The difference is that a double lenght leg is one leg divided in two parts, and a no-break leg is a leg without a break. I know Harris said it wasn't a Pit Stop, but a producer said it was like TAR 18, 2 legs without a break, and since they are two different legs, they can do whatever they want at the end of each leg.

Post by: Best Loser on October 01, 2011, 10:59:09 AM
The difference between a no-break leg and double-length leg is essentially a prize for 1st place.

The difference between a no-break leg and double-length leg is essentially a prize for 1st place.

TARLA gave a prize for a double leg once, on season 1, and it wasn't a no-break leg.

TARLA gave a prize for a double leg once, on season 1, and it wasn't a no-break leg.

Harris doesn't help at all in that point because he always says: there are 13 legs of the race.

We are not completely sure but that seems to be the case.
Other interesting point about the lower budget in this episode is that Toya and Juan del Mar did not receive a prize for getting 1st place.
And i haven't seen any sponsor for this season.  :duno:

And one little thing, according to what they said in facebook they waited around 40 minutes for the bus, so they are at least 40 minutes behind Rosy and Monica at the pit start, and i bet Monica's faint is not that serious. Also the tasks for this leg seem very physical.

There are 3 hours and a half at least between every ferry so I'M HOPING AND PRAYING there's an equalizer with the ferry so we don't have to see that UGLY TRASHY white board to control the timing to keep the difference between every team.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO  :groan:

Well from the promo you can see Demi & Maxi are still fighting with some mexican team to get a better position, and you can see that Juan says to Toya when he gave an answer with a board to a judge "esos manes lo hicieron rapido" (those guys did it quickly), so he is talking about the twins or Alejandro and Felipe, so maybe it's the same top 3 fighting for first place.

I'm pretty sure positions won't be moving that much! But i hope chileans finally win a leg, i think they are the stronger team (more than any of the colombian teams), but they haven't won a leg and that sucks.
Title: Re: TAR: Latin America SHOW Discussion! Leg 1 starts p.1
Post by: maxen on October 14, 2011, 09:06:19 PM
Well we know they win at least one leg for sure. They are by far the most atletic team and in terms of physical tasks they won't have any problem, but i think they have some negative points they can improve like choosing the right tasks, asking for better directions and being quicker to find taxis and buses. If they can improve those points they could win in Colonia, Montevideo or Santiago. The other good team could be Demi & Maxi, i'm sure they will get a chance to improve hughly their poor performances in the previous legs, and Kathy and Rick will be the underdogs of the season (but in a good way, not like Aleandra and Marlene), so i'm VERY INTERESTED in what they can bring to the table.

Well there wasn't even a white board, to me they released the teams from the Colonia ferry terminal according to the arriving time at the pit stop just like last season, really boring. It was a predictable episode with the same predictable winners and an obvious eliminated team. The needle task should had been a roadblock, not the lemon task. The best thing about last episode it was colonia, really beautiful, i want to be there someday.

But we know there is something going on in the next episodes that will change everything. It has to be between Montevideo and San Pedro de Atacama because we know the positions changed A LOT in San Pedro with the cousins and Rick and Kathy at the top and both colombian teams at the bottom. My bet? the Santiago leg. In Montevideo i think we won't see a lot of changes but something happened in Santiago and the positions were not the same.

I finally caught up with all 5 eps this season. I didn't like how the challenges didn't have anything to do with the locales (well most of them, anyway. I only remember the key roadblock in Montevideo that is unique to the place). And I hope there's a shuffle in team placements in future legs, especially the top 3.

It is a low budget season, because we don't have sponsors. But it is a really good season, and a good cast. Way better than TARLA 2. I think if you could understand spanish a little bit it wouldn't suck for you...

I think this is more of an average season than a sucky season, a sucky season was TARLA 2 in every way, even if it had a bigger budget it didn't work because most of the tasks were idiots, the cast was pretty dull and the editing was a joke.
The biggest problem is that the teams are not changing positions, the same top 3 for 4 legs. THANK GOD we know this is gonna change the next leg.. i don't know why, but it's gonna change hugely,  :tup:

Thanks to the delicious empanadas... everything will change because of that! :D

Agree! TARLA 2 had a huge budget, and it sucked. This season doesn't have a huge budget and it's average, and TARLA 1 had a big budget and was pretty good... so, budget is not everything... it also needs good teams (not only athletes), good locations and tasks.

Hopefuly is the empanada task, is a luck task. The lock-key challenge was a luck task too but it didin't change the order. Plus pushing the big plastic ball in the hill is more like a balance challenge, that could be really complicated for a strong person like Juan.

One thing that shocked me a little bit was that big flag in the platform that said with giant letters "THE AMAZING RACE"... did they really think nobody was going to notice that?  :groan:

On TARLA they have never keep eliminated teams, they always go home as soon as they're out of the race. The biggest mistake was to make a press conference in Argentina before the show taping began, there were pictures of all contestants all over the net so we could identify them.

It's as if the producers don't think people would bother to connect dots.
They shouldn't advertise the teams before taping begins, they shouldn't put giant banners with the show's name in plain sight during the race, they should get the teams to sign a confidentiality agreement to not reveal the outcome literally or by starting to be active again in social media (I'm guessing they never sequester the racers because of budgetary issues, but an agreement doesn't cost them anything).

I really like this version of the Amazing Race, but I'm stunned by how much the producers blatantly advertised that they were filming the Amazing Race while they were filming :ascared. In the U.S. the fact that the race had started was literally on twitter within an hour and actually saved a team from elimination.

OK i have to say this but the penalty for the speeding was the weirdest penalty ever.... we have a 15 minutes penalty in Antofagasta and now we have 1 HOUR PENALTY... are you fu... kiding me????  :groan: and for 3 TEAMS and we only see one of them speeding.

This is just not right.  :crazy:

Post by: GonzaloChileno on November 27, 2011, 09:19:21 PM
Yeah!!! it was so weird!... it looked like they wanted to save Toya & Juan, but they lost their fanny pack and production couldn't help them anymore  :lol3:... anyways it is cool that the positions moved a little bit.... also i think Cristóbal & Nicolás should have been penalised, as they were shown speeding too  :duno:

From the preview, i'm pretty sure one team will leave next week and since we know that the argentinians and chileans are in the finale, i would say Rick & Kathy were eliminated in Salvador  :'(. Also i hope the twins wins next leg too, i don't want Alejandro & Felipe to be the team that has won more legs in the Latin American version with 5 legs. If the twins win next leg, and then the finale... they would be tied, and i don't care about the first part of Leg 12, as i don't consider it a real leg.  :js:

And the speedbum  :groan:..that has to be the most ridiculous speedbump in any version of TAR, it was so obvius the producers wanted Toya and Juan to stay, they are the stunt cast.
In facebook Kathy and Rick said they didn't go over the speed limit and that their penalty was unfair. Maybe they used the penalty for Alajandro and Felipe for the other two teams to save Toya but it was so fake because we passed from 15 minutes to 1 hour. If that was the penalty in the Antofagasta leg Toya and Juan would have been eliminated instead Jose & Marisol.
I bet my life there is an equalizer the next leg.

Hi Mexican_Tab... we are not 100% sure, i really want them to be in the finale. It's just a speculation for what happened today about the penalty. Knowing that the twins and Maxi and Demi are on the final 3, i really doubt production is going to let Felipe & Alejandro be eliminated after losing Toya and Juan. But it's just my opinion about this, i can't talk in the name of the team that worked in this forum during the filming of the season.

At the introductions, I predicted Demi & Maxi to win just by how long their's was. I've been rooting for the twins though.


I haven't seen any of these seasons. How many episodes is the final leg? There seems to be a checkpoint in the middle, so is it a 2 hour episode, 2 separate episodes, or just a normal episode?

I really think that the producers are making TARLA too crappy. They are inconsistent with the rules, the graphics are rudimentary, the tasks are almost always staged and in a very low-budget way, the casting is way unbalanced, the lack of bunching points makes it really difficult for teams to scramble unless they screw up. The only things I really like are the scenery and that Harris has charisma. I feel that they're giving the Latin American market a very low quality product, and I wouldn't mind seeing more product placement if it would improve the show.

I agree. Not to mention the lack of diversity in the countries visited (only 5). I hope that if there's a 4th season they step it up a notch. Discovery Channel's version was better than Space's.

Post by: tarflyonthewall on December 10, 2011, 11:10:14 PM
I think a five-country route could have definitely worked, had they not picked THESE five countries. I know there's a huge market in Brazil and Argentina for them to cater to, and I support the decision to go back to Chile, after it only got one leg the first time, but imagine if they'd kept the Chile legs and done a central American country, a Caribbean country, one of the smaller countries on top of Brazil, and Paraguay instead.

Edit: Still, at least we didn't have to put up with Mexico again. Lovely country, but... I'm glad they gave it a rest, and I hope they also give Argentina in particular a rest next season. Seven legs in three seasons is about five too many, even on a reduced-scale route.
Title: Re: TAR: Latin America SHOW Discussion! Leg 1 starts p.1
Post by: Charlie90 on December 10, 2011, 11:45:58 PM
At least 3 more countries would've make it so much better. After all, one of the main attractions of TAR is the different countries they visit on a season. I didn't mind Argentina this time, only because of El Calafate. I really liked the starting line (It make me hope to visit it someday).

I agree that instead of the other two legs in Argentina they could have make those in Paraguay or Uruguay first and then Paraguay. A visit to El Salvador, Venezuela, Honduras or Panama, to fill the other two countries. And i'm still waiting for the original version of TAR or this version to pay a visit to Suriname..That would be awesome, because it would be great to know more about that country (or Guyana, for that matter), only because those are places you don't hear a lot about. I mean they are in America and i'm pretty sure a lot of people doesn't know about it.

El Salvador would have been AMAZING. The Dutch version of The Mole is still running, and spent their season this year in El Salvador and Nicaragua. I have watched every episode of every version of TAR, and I have never seen anywhere as stunningly beautiful as El Salvador.

I've never been to El Salvador...actually i've never been to another country that other than Mexico(My home country) or USA.  :cmas19 , but i bet it's beautiful just as the rest of Latin america. Let's pray for Space channel to send a team to scout the places and put together a great route. There are still a lot of countries left to visit in TarLa.

And yeah, let's give Argentina and Brazil a rest for next season. They're becoming our China and India, altough to a lesser extent.   :cmaslol

Post by: maxen on December 11, 2011, 07:45:06 AM
We discussed this alot when we found out they were visiting only 5 countries at the same time they were filming this season. I still have my little theory about this. After Space took the show instead Discovery i assume the scenario for the sponsors was not the same. Obviusly Space has not the same audience, literally was an unknown channel for most of the fans. I think Disney didn't want to continue running the show alone after the disaster of the second season, that's why they did this agreement with Turner for 3 years. Then the show was assigned to Space with the cost of losing all the sponsors. I think this season in particular was some kind of experiment to to attract again new sponsors, maybe not as big as the ones in the first and second season but enough to keep the show for a new season.
In this experement they were really safe with the countries so obviusly Argentina was going to be part of the route (the central offices of Space are in Buenos Aires), then they went to near places like Uruguay and Chile with even three legs in Argentina and Chile (and now Brazil). In these  other four countries they found safe places to make a low budge production  with a lot of help from local producers and the goverments (tourism offices). I hope the next season we'll see a production with a bigger budget and at least two more countries like Paraguay, maybe Venezuela again or some caribean islands.
I think this season had a lot of positive points to make it a better season than the second one (better casting and better editing), but now they have to think how to make this as good as the first one. Argentina and Brazil are waaayyy overused, i'm glad they gave a rest to Colombia and Mexico. We need another visit to Peru and Venezuela, maybe southern Chile or Easter Island (let me dream). Nicaragua and El Salvador would be really good options for Central America. If they have to go to Argentina again NOT BUENOS AIRES (Bariloche or Ushiaia), and if they have to go to Brazil they could go to Florianopolis or maybe Brazilia.

I explain why.

Warner Channel has always been showing that scenes of the race Making Of. And they show the Twins coming on and harris congratulating them.

Then they showed Demi and Maxi coming up,and Felipe/Alejandro too,but i reckon that they are not in that specific order.

Than,all them hug out and Alejandro or Felipe screams " Hoy Chile paga tudo!"
(Today Chile will pay for all)

And them the twins smile. Big big big big big spoiler...i didn't believe when i sawed.

It's not going to be easy for Demi & Maxi to keep the lead because they literally are 3 or 4 minutes apart from the second and third place.

If the twins won then i like the outcome. I would also like if Colombia wins, but beggars can't be choosers.

As for next season, i'm expecting new countries, harder tasks, and yes, a conflicting team. I can't believe i'm saying this but we really need some kind of villains to spice things up a little. The cast this season was a little dull.

I would love more Caribbean countries, with those beautiful beaches! Also, i want them to visit countries where they don't speak spanish or portuguese (which is similar to spanish), for example: Suriname, Guyana, French Guiana, Belize, and the whole of the Caribbean!

Yeah I personally think that going to the non Spanish & Portuguese speaking countries would be awesome!!
Plus I also want them to visit Cuba  :reindeer no hay bloqueo for the Latin American passports so they should be able to visit.
I'm also surprised they don't visit Bolivia more often. It has so many interesting possibilities, the altitude in many cities is challenging, plus it's cheap for production.

I think Maxi & Demi might have some kind of record for most places. They've placed 1st-9th. I'm not in the mood to actually check to make sure.

It is interesting that only Mexican teams (apart from the TOP 3) have been present at the finish line. First it was the Casildas and Guillermo & Gabriel, and now Rick & Kathy.

I absolutely loved this final leg!!! Teams switched positions the whole leg!!! And Demi & Maxi who were on the top 2 for the whole leg finished on 3rd place.

After watching this season, here is my ranking:

1.TARLA 1 (Awesome locations and teams, also an exciting finale)
2.TARLA 2 (Nice teams and an exciting finale, tasks were not so good)
3.TARLA 3 (Horrible editing, not too many teams to remember, but awesome locations)

This season was an absolute success in terms of spoilers, thanks to all of you who colaborated, and see ya next time!

Having the season be one continuous race rather several shorter races is an interesting thing to try, but the reality is that while it's more fair to the racers, it makes for boring television as the teams will constantly finish in similar spots. The one time there was an equalizer, it was a luck task that completely changed the order for the rest of the season.
I still think these three were the best three teams and it was anyone's game.

The show has potential, but I don't really know what the best way to fix it is.
