Winner of the first leg will win 2 express passes, one of which will be given to another team. The winner of the first leg will get to choose what team to give the EP to before the 4th leg. Winner will win The Amazing Race & $1 million. First clue is inside a new Ford Fusion. Advertising! Run down to the cars and go to the airport...

The world is waiting for you... good luck... travel safe... GO!

Teams are running down the observatory to their bags. Chuck falls. Meghan falls.

Going to Bora Bora! Drive to LAX. First flight carries 5 teams and it departs 1 hour before the second one.

And we have the team intros! The intro makes me dizzy. :lol3:

Chuck & Wynona are the first on the shuttle. Idries & Jamil and Pam & Winnie get on the second shuttle. The twins tell Pam & Winnie that they're deliver guys... but Pam & Winnie don't believe them. The twins tell them lol. Bates & Anthony are already talking about Caroline & Jennifer. gag.

Chuck & Wynona are the first on the first flight! Pam & Winnie get on. Idries & Jamil get on. Race to the line... Dave & Connor get on. Jessica & John make it. Jennifer & Caroline barely miss it.

Pam & Winnie come off as rude to me. I'm not a fan.

Max & Katie don't have that many friends in real life. They decide to go talk to some of the other teams to make friends. Joey & Meghan like Max & Katie. Max & Katie fake being nice. gag gag gag gag gag.

It's odd not having a starting line task. I like the idea of giving someone an EP though.

They're trying to make a pact to give the EP to whoever comes in second.

Title: Re: TAR 22 Ep 1 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **Please read the rules**
Post by: Polaroid on February 17, 2013, 07:21:02 PM
First 5 teams are discussing an alliance. OB/GYNs are talking about how the first team should give the second team the EP... yuck. they have an alliance now.

And now we're in Bora Bora. First flight is getting off. So beautiful!

"Who's ready to take a giant leap towards a million bucks?"

Teams have to sign up for 1 of 6 flights (each containing 2 teams). Jump off a helicopter from 10,000 ft. Tandem skydive. Their partner will take a water taxi to the landing spot, where they will reunite.

John & Jamil get on flight 1. Connor & Winnie get on flight 2. Chuck gets on flight 3.

Teams must sign up to fly in helicopters that will take two  teams. One team member will jump out of the helicopter while the other takes a water taxi to meet him/her.

One team member sky dives out of a helicopter and the other finds them. So similar to the TAR 20 first roadblock :P

Amazing scenery! :hearts:

John jumps first. This is crazy. The landscape is crazy. Jamil jumps second.

Second helicopter leaves.

John & Jessica get the first clue. Travel by water taxi to Eden Beach. Irdies & Jamil get the second clue.

Connor jumps out of the helicopter. Dave gets emotional talking about Connor getting cancer. He's happy he gets to see Connor having this experience. Winnie jumps. Chuck jumps.

Roadblock:

Search for clues in 400 sandcastles. Whatever sandcastle they destroy, they must replace. And it's hot.
Title: Re: TAR 22 Ep 1 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **Please read the rules**
Post by: Polaroid on February 17, 2013, 07:25:20 PM
Jessica & John are in first place. Second roadblock! "Who likes to play in the sand?" There are over 400 sandcastles and they'll have to dig under for their next clue. Whatever they destroy, they will have to rebuild. The other teammate has to do the roadblock.

Jessica has to do it. "It's like opening a Christmas present that's empty and having to wrap it back up." :lol3: Irdies is doing it.

Look for a clue in sand castles and rebuild it if there was nothing there. I like how it doesn't make it easier for the latecomers that way.

Second flight touches down.

Back. We see teams going into helicopters.

John says he got to jump out of a helicopter, Jessica gets to dig dirty. :lol3:

Dave & Connor arrive at the second roadblock. Dave has to do it. Pam & Winnie arrive. Pam has to do it.

Anthony jumps out of the helicopter. Caroline jumps out.

There's a random dog wandering on the beach? :lol3: It's hot on the beach. "Let the sandcastles talk to you." "Shut up." "That's our code word for I love you." loooooool the OB/GYNs.

Chuck & Wynona are looking for their clue from a local nearby... and then they see the clue. :lol3: The other teams laugh at them. "I've always wanted to be on a beach like this... but not digging sandcastles."

Matt & Max jumps out.

Caroline & Jennifer want to pass Max & Katie. Firefighters went in the water again. The distance just keeps increasing...

Max & Katie are team #9. Caroline & Jennifer are team #10. They both will have a 4 hour penalty. Max & Katie thought it was a genius decision taking the penalty, lol.

I like the strategic move engineered by Max and Katie. They didn't have to stand out there in the sun anymore and also avoided actually sitting out the four hour penalty which is brutal. I expect to see that kind of thing more often on those impossible tasks. It's similar to the TAR7 meat challenge skip that Rob came up with.

If I was in the bottom two or three I would always try to get the other team(s) to quit and run for the finish.

Next time looks like Dave hurts himself and they stick around the same area.

I'm just going to express again that I hate luck tasks, especially with Bates and Anthony checking in 2nd after like searching 2 sandcastles. I don't blame the task for Matt and Daniel's elimination, since they were too arrogant with the boat task.

I'm shocked they all took the penalty. If I was racing, I would have not agreed to take the penalty hoping that I have kept good track at which sandcastles I knocked down, but then again, I wasn't out there for 3 hours either.

Random notes from episode one:

In getting ready to send the teams off, Phil reprises a phrasology from the first season I haven't heard him use since. ("Most of the teams will be eliminated...but the team that reaches the finish line first will win The Amazing Race and $1 million") (Check Phil's narration over the opening credits of that season)

Clearly some new places are in the opening credits, as well as images of places and people we've seen since the show switched to HD.

Two extreme roadblocks in the first leg. I crewed on a hot air balloon flight where skydivers jumped out, but I've not heard of the use of helicopters for civilian use in skydiving. Note that the team member were in tandem with a trained jumper, so we can assume that team members had safety instruction prior to going up. But still.....the fifth team to arrive at that roadblock got the short end of the stick....as they had to wait for teams from the second flight out of LAX to get to Bora Bora.

The decision of the last three teams to quit and take their chances on who would get to the pit stop first was risky but understandable. That was one hell of a roadblock. Requiring the teams to replace the sandcastles as they checked them certainly made the task much more difficult for the trailing teams. I have to question why teams started right at the closest end and not scatter themselves at different points along the lines of sand castles. I can see why it was taking teams 4 hours and still not finish with the replacement requirement. Could it be any more random?

Chuck was able to go on the helicopter by himself and not wait for the second flight. If you look at the sign up sheet, there was only one slot for the 3rd helicopter.

Post by: starrynight on February 18, 2013, 03:45:24 AM
The best part by far was the sandcastles.  It was virtually the only task on the leg.  Even so that and the mini-drama it caused meant this was better than last season's launch.  Being told the last team WOULD be eliminated took the drama off the arrival of the last team. 

The twist of 3 teams agreeing to take a penalty was actually way more interesting than the 2 team express pass (another launch twist that, like last year's, left me underwhelmed).  I'm puzzled by Team Cancer saying that by being second on the plane meant they would get the express pass, I thought it was indicated clearly the second team on the mat would get it.  The producers creating some fake drama as the teams pretty much extinguished any suspense by agreeing the second place team would get it? 

The canoe task needed to be more difficult.  The Australian version last year did a raft task in a far more exciting launch that was a much bigger test.

Few navigation skills needed in this episode, just getting to an already indicated airport.  I'm not sure how a skydive from a helicopter is any more different to doing it from a plane, probably less high anyway.

Overall not that disappointed with who was eliminated.  Of the teams not that many standing out right now.  The producers are pushing the cancer team but they seem boring so far.  The youtube one and the one with the fake smile female look the two who standout so far.

I think it was because they already declared to take the penalty.
It'll be assessed no matter what. even if they went back to the RB location and start digging and actually found a clue,
When they arrived at the pit-stop, they would still have the 4 hour penalty

Remember FlightTime&BigEasy taking the penalty on the telephone RB? BigEasy never seemed to go back inside and tried to complete the RB and The place was literally behind'em. I think it's because even if he finished the RB before the 4 hour is up, it would not affect anything. They still would get their clue when the 4 hour is up.

Katie: "Come on clue pleaseeeeee." how about no.

Pam & Winnie are out of the roadblock in 5th. Irdies murmurs for Joey to stop talking. Joey is being quite uh, crazy. LOL. Joey & Meghan are out of the roadblock in 6th.

Pit stop:
1st - Jessica & John - EPx2
2nd - Bates & Anthony
3rd - Dave & Connor

Dave & Connor think they should get the second EP because of the alliance...

Why? The alliance does not include them. If John and Jessica are true to the alliance, they must give it to the next finishing team of the alliance. That is David and Connor.

I think they meant second out of their pack to reach the pit-stop. Anthony&Bates were not included in the pack. So they did not count.

Besides, not that I hate Anthony&Bates (OMG I LOVE'EM SO MUCH THEY'RE NICE AND ADORABLE), they proved they were strong and managed to surge ahead to catch up. If John&Jessica played smart, there was NO WAY they gave it to Anthony&Bates. What, they wanted Anthony&Bates to scoop first place from them? Maybe that's why Dave tried to appear weak and not physically fit so John&Jessica would honor the pack and give'em the EP.

They might as well give it to Max&Katie or Caroline&Jennifer since they're both at least four hours behind now if JJ played smart. These two were most likely to battle out the last place in leg 2. If one of'em had an exprees pass, the other one was screwed entirely. And even more, there's almost no way one of these two would catch up to John&Jessica even with the EP.

What's the dealio with an EP anyway? the only teams winning the race so far after using the EP were Ernie&Cindy and Rachel&Dave. besides, none of the teams using the EP in a leg that actually has won that particular leg.

TAR 17 -> Jill&Thomas got 5th place after using the EP in leg 4
TAR 18 -> Gary&Mallory got 2nd place after using the EP in leg 5
TAR 19 -> Ernie&Cindy got 2nd place after using the EP in leg 6
TAR 20 -> Rachel&Dave got 6th place after using the EP in leg 3
TAR 21 -> Natalie&Nadiya got 3rd place after using the EP in leg 8

I personally wasn't too excited with this EP twist. it'll just bring some short drama in the race.

Yeh both the express pass and the last year two million prize are twists that might not last long, but most importantly they don't really concern most of the teams anyway.  I'm not sure you really need new twists just a good cast and of course well designed legs with good challenges.

Good, its so stupid for firefighters
Smart people wins :hrt:
Their brainpower had nothing to do with the elimination of Daniel and Matt. As most of the few firefighters I know are, Matt and Daniel had physiques that would provide strength for their primary tasks. That strength translates into increased brawn (how many small, skinny firefighters have you seen, even the female ones). That brawn is what did Matt and Daniel in, as it made their canoe tippy. It had nothing to do with brainpower.

But still.....the fifth team to arrive at that roadblock got the short end of the stick....as they had to wait for teams from the second flight out of LAX to get to Bora Bora.

Chuck was able to go on the helicopter by himself and not wait for the second flight. If you look at the sign up sheet, there was only one slot for the 3rd helicopter.
Right. And there were seats set side for Chuck and Wynona from Papeete to Bora Bora along with the other teams of the first flight group.

OMG BETH FOUND THE CLUE. YOU GO GIRL. :hearts: 4th out of the roadblock.

Katie: "Come on clue pleaseeeeee." how about no.

Pam & Winnie are out of the roadblock in 5th. Irdies murmurs for Joey to stop talking. Joey is being quite uh, crazy. LOL. Joey & Meghan are out of the roadblock in 6th.

Pit stop:
1st - Jessica & John - EPx2
2nd - Bates & Anthony
3rd - Dave & Connor

Dave & Connor think they should get the second EP because of the alliance...

Why? The alliance does not include them. If John and Jessica are true to the alliance, they must give it to the next finishing team of the alliance. That is David and Connor.

I think they meant second out of their pack to reach the pit-stop. Anthony&Bates were not included in the pack. So they did not count.

Besides, not that I hate Anthony&Bates (OMG I LOVE'EM SO MUCH THEY'RE NICE AND ADORABLE), they proved they were strong and managed to surge ahead to catch up. If John&Jessica played smart, there was NO WAY they gave it to Anthony&Bates. What, they wanted Anthony&Bates to scoop first place from them? Maybe that's why Dave tried to appear weak and not physically fit so John&Jessica would honor the pack and give'em the EP.

They might as well give it to Max&Katie or Caroline&Jennifer since they're both at least four hours behind now if JJ played smart. These two were most likely to battle out the last place in leg 2. If one of'em had an exprees pass, the other one was screwed entirely. And even more, there's almost no way one of these two would catch up to John&Jessica even with the EP.

What's the dealio with an EP anyway? the only teams winning the race so far after using the EP were Ernie&Cindy and Rachel&Dave. besides, none of the teams using the EP in a leg that actually has won that particular leg.

TAR 17 -> Jill&Thomas got 5th place after using the EP in leg 4
TAR 18 -> Gary&Mallory got 2nd place after using the EP in leg 5
TAR 19 -> Ernie&Cindy got 2nd place after using the EP in leg 6
TAR 20 -> Rachel&Dave got 6th place after using the EP in leg 3
TAR 21 -> Natalie&Nadiya got 3rd place after using the EP in leg 8

I personally wasn't too excited with this EP twist. it'll just bring some short drama in the race.




I think you will find that the advantages an Express Pass confers on a team completely depend on the opportunities they have to use it. If a team had reached the sandcastles ROADBLOCK with an Express Pass and had trouble doing it, you can be sure that they would use it as soon as they knew that. It's a judgment of many complex factors on when to use the Express Pass, but many times you save it to get out of a future possible problem and find that none materializes. It appears that you have wasted it, but you never know when that problem will occur on the final leg in which it is applicable.

The express pass is a safety game-changer until Leg 8 or until the point you use it. Rachel and Dave used in Leg3 , imagine if they got eliminated in Leg 4? (example) it's always a possibility. So i doesn't changes the game , just give people more confidence.

Say John and Jessica are eliminated before Episode 4, and still have the 2nd EP. Do they just give it up then or does it not get given to anyone?

yeah exactly. I don't really get why everyone's like "Let's buddy-buddy with everyone just in case they won the EP. yay yay yay!" Like uugh relax!don't have to be so dramatical. I personally would be more motivated to race for a trip to Hawaii than an EP

LOL i think that EP goes to drain. And this whole twist would be for nothing
JJ got eliminated before leg 5 would become history,though LOL
They would be the first ever team to win an EP and not reaching final 4.

They might be the first team to not use their Express Pass, but not the first team to reach the F4 as the 1st Vietnam's version team to win the Express Pass didn't even get to the final 9. :lol3:

Although I've seen some on forums complaining about teams quiting the sandcastles together that actually made it a much closer ending than it might otherwise have been.  That final canoe journey didn't look that long and could well have done little to change the order had teams not started it together in last place.  So that was a bit of luck for this leg.

[/quote]

i think the function of the express pass is to avoid elimination, not to win a leg. Jill/Thomas & Gary/Mallory were in last place at that time, so they had to use the express pass to survive. Dave & Rachel were not in last place, but still in a danger position so they decided to use it. Natalie & Nadiya had to use it because leg 8 was their last chance to use it.

Leg 1 was awesome. Let's just say I loved both Roadblocks and Bora Bora, and that this is a good season premiere.

Love all the teams (even Max and Katie!!), except... the twin doctors AND the youtube stars. They annoy the hell out of me.

Max and Katie are actually at least funnily honest people.

GREAT SEASON... for now!

I usually agree with you, but not this. I don't think TAR will ever lose their appeal. There's just too many diff types of people in the world and too many places in the world. With 2 variables, the dynamics are always changing and you get different types of epic moments from time to time.

I have to add that we got some great editing team-wise. Every time played a part in the leg (besides intro):

John & Jessica - Dominating the leg, winning Express Passes
Bates & Anthony - Talking about how they spend a lot of time each other (on the water taxi), luckily jumping to 2nd, though they probably got the least screen time
Dave & Connor - Talking about surviving cancer (we'll get this in every episode though.. :P)
Pam & Winnie - They had quite a lot of footage in the first 10, 15 minutes or so, especially interacting with the teams. After that, they pretty much disappeared.
Mona & Beth - Flight 5/6 mistake
Joey & Meghan - Joey being cheerful at the Roadblock, interacting with Max & Katie at the airport
Chuck & Wynona - Trouble looking for the clue, Wynona at the Roadblock :lol:
Idries & Jamil - Having trouble with sand/canoe, they actually had a lot of footage though
Max & Katie - The plan at the end of the episode obviously.. having no friends/interacting with Joey & Meghan :lol:
Caroline & Jen - Interacting with Bates & Anthony.. trouble with sand castle Roadblock
Matt & Daniel - uhh.. getting eliminated :lol3:

 It was nice to see some interaction at the airport/bus. I don't remember that getting too much focus in a while

We all have this idea WRP comes on here for ideas and things they can improve. I know for sure I've complained about Starting Line challenges :lol:

So I want to get this out in hoping they see it - THANK YOU! THANK YOU SO MUCH! I am SO glad they decided to go with no SLC this season! I thought if there was no SLC, the premieres wouldn't feel as rushed, HOWEVER, this one was. I tried to think about what caused it to be sorta rushed because there wasn't a SLC? I realised what producers tried to improve this premiere was CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT - and they did a REALLY good job! We finally got to see airport action and team acquaintances again! That was <33333333 awesome! Unlike recent premieres, I feel like we know a bit about each team, even the one that was eliminated, so that was definitely a plus, as I think the characters play the biggest role in this show. The only team I thought that was under-edited was Meghan & Joey, but hopefully we'll get to see more of them next week ;) So thank you producers! Thank you for realising the SLCs are kinda unnecessary :lol:

What an utterly beautifully shot episode.  Can't judge versus last season as I still have yet to watch most of last year (God, how I hate real life).  But the look of this episode was glorious, I think its the best looking episode of TAR (though in fairness a few episodes from earlier seasons might give it a run if they had been shot in HD).

As to the tasks, while I am not a huge fan of Random search tasks, I do like the use of double roadblocks as either the thrill seeker or the non terrified person is tasked with the relatively easy task.  Leaving the harder task for the normally the weaker member of the team.  I like that as it truly makes both members perform.  Even Detours can have one racer doing the majority of a task.

As for the Express Pass.  Frankly I don't hate it like most things (u_turn, Yield, all versus of those which I abhor), but I hate, hate the idea of time wasted on sucking up to people, or the use of it as power over others.  That completely and totally SUCKS!

Casting:  Oh why does casting so much suck on these shows.   Seriously since season 12 I have only been excited by three seasons cast.  Season 14, 17 and 19.  And desperately looking for a few teams to like out of the other seasons.

It's not a terrible cast, but its not a great one either.
