Why should we even care about the gender make up of the teams. I seriously get confused when people say they don't want a team to in because their men and they want the only female teams to win. It sounds sexist, especially when you don't even know their personalities yet. Most of the all female teams end up being a bust with a few having what it takes to make it far.

Well, the world is a sexist place anyway and nothing is ever fair. The Amazing Race is undeniably designed in a way where brutal tasks will benefit alpha male teams and the all-female teams generally suffer. Some people (like me) generally like rooting for all-female teams to win because an all-female win again an alpha-male team will sort of be unexpected and beating the odds, and I don't really see this as sexist, I reckon for me it's I want to see unexpected things happening on the race. TAR 9 was a bore fest watching E/J and the Hippies dominate the race in alternative 1st and 2nd place.

But I do agree that some people don't look past the personality of the teams. I rooted for Max and Katie to win but am perfectly fine with Bates and Anthony as they were hilarious people who were easy going and seemed to be good-hearted.

The fact that people are complaining with an abundance of 5 all-male teams is because, the race is already sort of biased towards helping DECENT all-male teams progress further with physical tasks, and the fact that they are throwing in so many all-male teams without balancing it up is just disappointing. Had they cast 4 all-male teams, 4 all-female teams and 3 co-ed teams, I don't think there will be so much back-lash now. If you do some calculation, there's really only 8 female racers this season and it's pathetic, as compared to 14 male racers.

I hope the two F/F teams will get 8th and 10th like a wish season I am working on. :lol3: (In my version, the highest leg placement a F/F team will get is 6th... worse than TAR20's.)

Maybe we will get another cast like TAR4, "Millie Mole & Werewolf" 2.0 and more Kelly & Jon-styled moments! Well... I hope ratings and route will get better (not like season 4 :lol: )

Starting EVERY season in Los Angeles, California. Why in the world is this necessary? Is it really that hard to go a few hundred miles to another (and may I say, likely better) location to begin the Race? Certainly a change of both start AND end cities would cut down on spoilers (which may seem "bad" for us, but would benefit the secrecy of the show tremendously). Also, the rest of the United States really needs a chance to shine, especially more rural places that aren't exclusively on the coastlines.

(Before anyone mentions the Family Edition, I will state that that doesn't count.)

I don't like only 2 F/F. We need an equilibrated number of M/M and F/F teams...

For this reason, it's normal we never have F/F winner teams. :groan:

The LA Starting Line.. I don't like it too. EEUU have more than LA..

Speech! :hoot:

Thank you I'm not the only one. I miss the starting seasons like 2, 3, 9, 11, and 17 where they started in secret locations instead of cities. The time when Phil said "Go!" in the Pahrump salt flats, Everglades, and even in Arizona which nobody thought would get visited... that was when the race got ON. :luvya:

(Praying next season will start in New York or even Texas.)

True, there are 5 M/M teams, but they don't really seam that strong. The blue team (they'll probably get eliminated early), bingo guys (they might get eliminated early too), and metalheads probably won't be too strong (I can see the metalheads getting 6th like James & Abba). One thing I do like about all these M/M teams is that there is so much variety. This season has some of the most interesting teams in race history.

Although, 5 guy teams is a little much. I would love to see a remake of TAR 17 with 3 M/M, 4 F/F, and 4 M/F. To this day season 17 is one of my favorites- mainly because it was the first season I watched and mainly because it had the first F/F winner- but also because it had such a variety between the M/M teams, F/F teams, and M/F teams.

They're probably in a rural area without a lot of technology, like rural Peru or rural Bolivia.

Incidentally, the two F/F teams were on the first flight to Chile, so I'm pretty sure they survived the first leg.

I don't like when teams are cast, or not cast, on the basis of their gender make-up. To me it is not a relevant factor. As many pointed out during the last season (TAR 22) no so-called alpha-male team had won since TAR 10; although male same-gender teams did win some seasons, they had flaws (and I would suspect were probably cast to throw those flaws into the mix. And there were several seasons where strong male teams did not make to the finish mat first, although they made final four.

Female same-gender teams likewise were cast, and won some of those seasons between TAR 10 and 22, and some of them missed opportunities to win because of their mistakes that had nothing to do with their perceived physical strength or lack thereof.

So I admit I get irritated by talk about there being too many or too few same gender teams in a particular season. TPTB seem to have found their sweet spot in casting teams that aren't totally perfect and giving them all chances to succeed or fail on their own choices and decisions. That's why you won't be hearing me complain ever about the superficial categorization of teams by their gender make-up.

I largely agree. I think it's mostly irrelevant what gender or racial makeup the team has. If they are likable and I think they deserve to win, I will root for them. Regardless of gender, race, etc, as long as interesting, "real-people" teams are cast, I will be satisfied.

But remember, in some of the past seasons, one of the first teams on the first flight can also be the first team eliminated. (ex: Bilal & Sa'eed, Ari & Staella, Preston & Jennifer ??? , Ron & Tony, etc.)

However, there was a sighting on the live sightings thread showing Ashley & Ally (LA Kings cheerleaders) at Lisbon Int'l Airport.

I LOVE the entire route so far! :wohoo: They visited countries that need more race visit (Portugal and Norway)... Although I'm hoping for another city other than Vienna within Austria... They should visit Linz, Graz, Innsbruck, or Salzburg next time and stay for the entire leg IMHO. (not just for a train station transit or just for a task and then go to other city)...

Qatar Airways is a quite popular airline for flying from Europe to various places in Asia, so they might just be connecting through Qatar, although a Qatar visit wouldn't be too unlikely since Qatar has done a lot to attract tourists lately (such as acquiring many large sporting events).

No more Indonesia, please. Like, really. You are running out of ideas.

Also, knowing it is leg 7 or 8, where could the Race go next? We are having Pacific countries for the last 4 legs before back to the US? I don't like that huge jump. Would have preferred a couple of legs in UAE, Qatar, Bahrein, whatever (even India), and having Leg 9 onwards to Indonesia and those countries like such as.

I can almost see that 1st half of the Route>>>>>>>>>>>>>>2nd half.

Bandung's a great city. Like Theodorus said it has a lot cultural things - it's a historic, old city and it's surrounded by mountains, it's popular with tourists and in my opinion it's different from the locations TAR has visited previous seasons. But if they're doing 2 legs in Indonesia, I hope they go somewhere East Indonesia.

i lived for 2 years in Bandung when i was high school. there are many interesting places. and the weather is cold, not hot like Surabaya or Bali.  if i were the WRP crew, i would visit Kawah Putih (white crater) or Mount Tangkuban Perahu, Asia-Africa Museum, Bosscha Observatory, maybe playing an angklung (traditional music instrument from bamboo) for the roadblock, and Gedung Sate for the pit stop.

Bandung has many beautiful places to visit and potentially to be the Pit Stop, like nyoman said, such as Kawah Putih, Bosscha Observatory, and in my opinion, Bumi Siliwangi also has good potential to be the Pit Stop. :)

Indonesia is a big hop from Austria via Doha, but while I understand why it may seem to be too much to some, (as India was in those early seasons, along with China) to the average viewer of TAR in the US it is not as big a concern since it's a country most Americans are just plainly unfamiliar with. What I want is for them to do something with coffee (since Java is a common nickname for coffee in the US, and we all could use a pick-up or two with the time lag and Phil's jet lag!

I was once asked by the sophmores and juniors at high school during my exchange year in the US back in 2006, and they were asking me, 'where is Indonesia?' and then I asked them back, 'do you guys know Bali?!' and almost 90% of them nodding their head, meaning that yes they know.. So I explained to them.. 'Well, Bali is located in Indonesia, so if you know Bali that means you also know Indonesia, it is one of the provinces in the country.." and suddenly they're all laughing... :lol:

I know, but Indonesia has been visited even more frequently than China or India now in post-UB which makes me overdramatize stuff since unvisited or long-time raced countries need a starring too. I liked it when Indonesia was visited in TAR19, not an incredibly strong leg, but really grateful they visited it, but now it's like they are vomiting routes for Indonesia that don't even focus correctly like TAR21. I don't even remember what the teams did in Surabaya or Bangil except for the padang plate balance RB.

i feel like i'm supposed to be glad because they finally visited my city, but it just seemed so wrong. season 19 visit to yogyakarta and borobudur were not great legs, season 21 visithas even worse legs than 19, season 22 was fair enough but not that great either. i just hope that this indonesian leg doesn't bore viewers like the previous three seasons, which could make you dislike amazing race and indonesia :gaah: :tantrum i also have no idea why they keep coming. they could've been to india. hopefully, the next leg after this will be in philippines


So far, I only found 'you' that express your feeling like this, all other Official TAR Indonesian Fans are grateful with this opportuniy :)

don't get me wrong man, i have been waiting for this moment for 2 years but i concern about what viewers think( gue rada sakit hati ngeliat orang luar ngomong " indonesia lagi-indonesia lagi" kan kelihatan banget bosen sama indo) i just wanted one season break for indonesia. please don't make me feel guilty, i love everytime amazing race visited my country  :hug?:

Well, I appreciate your opinion and I'm agree with your reason. But I just want to inform you that tolong pake bahasa Inggris di sini, ntar kesannya kita ngomongin yg jelek2 please use English, don't make other readers think that we talk about something bad to them. ;) ;) ;)
ok i'm sorry, i'm new here

I am quite content with the 5 remaining teams

Although I am a bit sad that the Blue M/M didn't make it this far (pre-show favorite)

And hey, only one M/M appears to have made it far, so now people don't have to whine about too many M/M teams anymore

I am still just sad that the older married couple and Duck Dynasty are out. Also sad that we lost the red girls. The blondes are just more pointless stunt casting. The other four teams shouldn't be too bad though (until we find out that they are ALL stunt casting as well).

I'm also glad that among the 5 M/M teams, the Afghanimals lasted! And I kinda have a feeling the 3 M/F are as tough as nails. With the blondes and the Afghanimals in an alliance?

PS: If it's true, all except one male-male teams crashed and burned this season. :oh :stare
That might be the same case as previous season. Although this time, I like the remaining M/M team (I'm kinda rooting for them), not like the previous one. :)
Probably this season could end up like TAR 18, wherein 4 of the 5 TAR 14 teams were the 1st 4 booted out and the last survivor would end up as winner. :res:

This coincidence could happen. :res:

Maybe that's because the production is cutting the budget (am I right), and travelling in Indonesia for foreigners (especially within Java) is pretty cheap, y'know. ;) But I agree that they should take a rest in visiting Indonesia for a couple of seasons, but then go to other places in Indonesia like Sumatra, Sulawesi, Kalimantan, or even Papua! :)

I wouldn't be disappointed for SanFran again. TAR2 featured some decent sites and Sausalito which was okay. TAR11's feature was mostly in the city core of SF. TAR16's finale made me want to barsh (barf & blush), not only to the win, but the Star Wars, Coit Tower rappelling, and psychedelic posters theatre crap was embarrassing for S.F. A childhood friend I have living in West San Francisco watched the finale and told me how disgusted she was of seeing "her" city being featured poorly. I mean, SF has SO MANY amazing sites like the Embarcadero St. (Pier 39, Fisherman's Wharf, Ferry Building Marketplace), Alcatraz, Chinatown (origin of fortune cookies), the infamous trolleycars, so much history. It's a deep shame they couldn't feature any of it. :( I would feel sorry since I used to live in San Francisco for 10 years as a newborn to kid before moving to Chicago.

They've just about exhausted all of the major cities on or near both coasts since TAR 13; and the finish lines from other seasons have included Las Vegas, Phoenix, Denver, Dallas, Chicago.
St. Louis, Houston, New Orleans, Detroit, Cleveland, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Nashville, (and Philadelphia near the east coast) are all areas that have not hosted either a start or finish line and are overdue.

Does anyone know how far the last all-female team got?
I believe the last time we saw them was in Bandung. :)

Sigh. So probably the brunettes got 6th at best and the blondes in 5th. That's great I guess. Sigh..

Just thinking...

I remembering thinking back when Anchorage was used as the TAR12 finale, that Alaska was being overused and thus cliched. Flash forward to now, and realizing now that visits have become few and far between. And this time, it's to a city that was never visited before.

Also, I'd say that the slate of finale cities was wiped clean after All-Stars, since they would have a full leg instead of a half-leg. So we could see Seattle, Chicago, and Dallas in the near future seasons.

Funny how some people here are already getting tired of Indonesia, after fans wanting it so badly for a long, long time. And it was a lot more so after the Asian and Aussie editions went there beforehand.

If the final leg was planned for Boston and they decided to scrap it because of the Boston bombing (which seems unlikely to me given how events unfolded back then), Juneau doesn't strike me as a likely replacement candidate if they had to put something together on short notice. Some large city that they were already familiar with and had contacts for would be likelier. Hawaii and San Francisco are the first possibilities that come to mind.

I actually like the shaking effects & colors of the new intro.. makes the locations and journey look more epic.

They picked the wrong music for it though. It sounds like a combination of the theme song for seasons 1-13 and 14-22, I think if they kept 14-22, it would have sounded and looked a bit more epic.

In the first few seasons it was possible to figure out from the opening credits what countries were being included that season; and in season 1 they all but told us the final three or four by their use of shots on teams in those locations. They wised up and nowadays we may see some of the new places being visited, but the editors will maintain a wide mix of the places they've been to, especially now that there are several seasons in the can recorded in HD.

After reading Hoskote & Naina's interview, I want to bitch about the first leg. After watching it, the tricky question in the first Roadblock practically left half of the racers doing nothing on the first leg, which was Naina's case. I think it was by far the lamest Roadblock since the only thing they had to do was ride a cab. At least in other similar tasks they had to navigate and drive themselves.

This is the most garbage amazing race season premiere I've ever seen. Just based on the starting line alone, I can already tell this whole season will be manufactured tasks and tons of fake actor-esque teams. I know I won't be following this season, just like the past 4 seasons.

I mean I'm all for the change. They lost the reality series Emmy to The Voice....yes, The Voice. I think they are trying to spice up the show. I understand TAR fans hate the "scripted" teams but that's how you gain more viewers. If there is a team that has a buzz in the TV world such as (potentially) Tim and Marie or the Afghanimals, more people will want to watch. They are onviously trying to liven up the show so I can not blame them. I wasn't thrilled by the premiere but I thought it was okay and I think the season has some potential.

No, they don't. The seasons with no actors or obscure actors/entertainment gurus did better than the show is now, and the show wasn't constant action and brainlessness like it is now. Every single team playing seems impulsive and they are recruited for "dynamic" TV, when, in all reality, it's not dynamic or entertaining to watch at all. (Unless you like constant action and impulsive overreactions) It's basically the same as the movie The Avengers with its ridiculous constant action. It makes it so that the viewer doesn't have to think at all and just watches it purely for entertainment instead of learning. The first 14 or so seasons were actually educational and had downtime where you could actually get to know the teams. THOSE aspects were enjoyable for me. There's a reason so many early fans of the show have ditched it by now. There is absolutely no cultural value in it and in the old seasons I even felt as if I was on the same journey as the teams. WRP should realize that, but unfortunately they only care about money.

And this alone explains TAR's lowest 8 point something ratings in viewership. The producers better start realizing they need to either FIRE & REHIRE PREVIOUS CREW MEMBERS or RETRAIN EVERY CREW MEMBER (no if, ands, buts, or whys about it :nono2:) how to properly edit and deliver a quality cast and route. The athlete teams need to stop. The "pretty girl" faces need to halt because they need to realize either they have a memorable personality or belong on VH1. From what I heard about other CBS shows, this is beyond the worst year of broadcasting in CBS history.

Period!. :furious:

I was skimming through the interview of Hoskote & Naina, and they mentioned that they had a layover in Dallas, which seemed to play a factor why the 2nd set of teams were a lot farther behind than the 1st set. I wonder why it was not shown at all, instead showing as if it was a straight shot from LA to Santiago.

I am also not a fan of the new intro, but I guess I will have to get used to it.

Also, the casting has definitely gone the way of the Asian edition. And who knows, if Phil Simms will get his wish. He did say in one broadcast, that he would like to try out for the race.

Amazing Race's Hoskote and Naina: We Deliberately Did the Roadblock Incorrectly

Sep 30, 2013 02:57 PM ET
by Joyce Eng


What do you mean?
Hoskote:
You had to take one of the two flights the show booked. Between the first and second flights, there was going to be a 30-minute gap between when they landed in Santiago, Chile. Then there was a one-hour window from Santiago to Iquique. Once we arrived there, we could've all gotten on the same flight to Iquique. They didn't show this on TV, but unfortunately, there was a hurricane in Dallas and our flight went through Dallas, so we knew we were going to be three hours late into Santiago. ... If we were allowed to use our own navigation skills and our chutzpah to get to Chile any way we want, maybe we wouldn't have been three hours late. But the rules didn't allow that. We ended up being three and a half hours late, so seven teams were completing the leg before our flight had even arrived in Chile.

Sorry to say, but Iquique did not look interesting at all. Maybe the race chose the wrong places, but after seeing the 1st leg, I definitely don't have a desire to visit.

Santiago, on the other hand, looked a lot more interesting.
Title: Re: TAR 23: Bitch, Moan, and Squeal Thread **Spoilers Inside!**
Post by: cosmophobia on October 08, 2013, 11:50:20 PM
In fact, Iquique IS NOT interesting at all (at least for me). There's a unesco world heritage site/ghost town near the city in the desert. I still have no idea why they didn't visit it.

Santiago, on the other hand...  :hrt:
However, This is the 4th time the race visits Santiago (yes, very overvisited), but it has never hosted a whole leg, it has been either a half leg or a lenghty bus connection (the bus fiasco of TAR16) Just some trivia :)

Loved the showcase of Santiago in TAR Norway!

And now that I think about it, chilean buses always deliver good TAR moments!

I only really remember the race actually having a leg (or parts of a leg) in Santiago during TAR7. And sucks that half of the 2nd leg of TAR23 was wasted on Iquique. I mean, 1 leg was bad enough there, but having another, is just mind-boggling, to say the least.

Though, looking at it at another way, it was not a complete waste, with certain teams choosing the Brining Detour.  :)

At least no team was dumb enough to get the wrong currency.

Post by: RaceUntilWeDie on October 14, 2013, 09:41:40 AM
I've been keeping up with the season, just haven't been posting in a while.

Here are my overall impressions of the first fourth of the season, leg-by-leg and team-by-team.

Leg Impressions (up to Leg 3)

Leg 1 - I found this leg to be one of the worst first legs.. possibly ever. There was nothing interesting about it and we barely even got to know the teams. I think TAR should get 90-minute premieres because 60 minutes is just too little to fill in the team profiles, starting line, airport (if necessary), and the actual tasks. Because of that, this, along with the past few premieres, felt really rushed and boring. I felt so bad for the Father/Daughter team, especially after reading their elimination interview. The leg design was TERRIBLE with one of the teammates of each team actually not doing anything the entire leg (since the person NOT performing the first RB actually did the paragliding, and that person was forced to do the second RB = one person carrying the team). They had a really interesting dynamic as well.. so sad to see them leave too soon.

Leg 2 - I found this leg to be a MAJOR improvement from the previous leg. It wasn't quite good if you take a closer look at the leg design and events. The Detour was definitely pointless and was just a deciding factor for who will be on the first bus and so on. While the Detour choices were.. different.. but there was nothing too interesting about them. The shoe-shining RB saved the leg. I loved when night fell - I think the fact that it was nighttime and still crowded is what made the RB so chaotic for the last five teams or so. Rowan & Shane were a total trainwreck this episode! They did surprisingly well in the first leg, though.

Leg 3 - This leg brought back something that TAR lacks these days: airport drama. It wasn't just getting the right flight that was drama, it was also team-drama! Nicky & Kim were smart to get on standby earlier than everyone else.. makes me wonder why no one hadn't thought of that before them. I think the tasks were pretty cool this leg, especially the Magellan Detour choice. I'm really liking all of the teams so far. I just think the doctors need to calm down and stop getting stressed when they're consistently in the front. Honestly, TAR should apply a new rule where teams cannot work together unless it's an Intersection. This is probably why they don't do Intersections anymore, because teams are constantly working together whenever they feel like it - and it's just not fair imo. While this episode had lots of great drama and decent tasks, it WAS lacking something: suspense. Poor Chester & Ephraim.. just one little mistake (even if it wasn't theirs) can completely change the outcome of the Race.

Team Impressions (as of Leg 3)

Nicole & Travis - Like I said in my Leg 3 thoughts, I think they should tone down their competitiveness. They're getting too stressed over nothing. So far they're an okay team. I can't wait for Nicole's "power play" meltdown "I WANT THAT EXPRESS PASS."  :funny:

Jason & Amy - They are definitely improving and could start to dominate. Apparently they had some seven minute-lead ahead of Nicole & Travis. Sucks for them that they lost their lead because of the taxi driver.

Nicky & Kim - I think they're a really likeable/strategic team. I don't really have anything against them.

Tim & Danny - My pre-race impression of them was that they're going to be one of those slow and boring M/M teams who get booted early. Boy, I was wrong. I really like them and they're just running and enjoying the Race. I loved Danny's guilt for lying to Marie :lol:

Brandon & Adam - They haven't really made much of an impression for me. I think of them the same way as Tim & Danny: running and enjoying the Race.. but they haven't quite delivered yet.

Leo & Jamal - I like AND dislike them for some reason. I'm not a fan of their alliance with the Ice girls.. it's just rather pointless. I love when they mess with Tim & Marie though :lol:

Ally & Ashley - Not a fan of their alliance with the Afghanimals.. they're kind of better off without them. These girls as their own team actually haven't delivered much yet, either.

Tim & Marie - I was surprised that they were actually the last team of the second flight pack. I love me a team of Exes but I think Tim needs to fight back with Marie sometimes.. I guess it's better that he doesn't so their whole dynamic doesn't come across as "fake" as some view it. Like the Afghanimals, I like AND hate this team for some reason.

I actually kind of agree with Phil's pre-season hype this time around. The teams this season are pretty competitive and there are no teams remaining that stroll around slowly (i.e Rob & Kelley) and somehow make it. They're all competitive whether they're in an alliance or not, and that's what I like about this cast so far.

you know what i am really loving about this season? It has had the best editing in a long time. After only TWO legs, no team has been ignored and we can get a feel for each of the teams! Also, we got moments for all teams in leg two! That is just awesome!

This I don't agree. This season still seems to be Marie against the world + moments of Afghanimals. I am still not seeing much from Jason and Amy, Tim and Danny, Brandon and Adam and the Ice Crew girls. That's half the teams in the final 8. :(

My team analysis so far...
 
Afghanimals: The worst of BJ & Tyler combined with the street smarts of Erwin & Godwin. I’m sure they are smart, athletic and funny in real life, but their race so far has been a train-wreck. Alienating the other teams this early in the race will also make you enemies, something that you don’t need especially with the Express Pass still in play and also the U-turns.

Nicole & Travis: Sometimes asking nicely will get you things, and throwing tantrums will only make people see you as a 5-year-old.  Can't wait for Leg 4.

Tim & Marie: I see them as an Eric & Danielle type of team, with one racer dragged down by a teammate with poor racing abilities (in this case Marie dragged down by Tim) and poor team dynamics. I still stand by my pre-season assessment of this team.

Brandon & Adam and Tim & Danny: Both teams are so invisible, I fear they will be eliminated soon.

Chester & Ephraim: They had so much bad luck it wasn't funny.

Jason & Amy: Once they get their race going and have some luck, this team could be a threat.

can I just bitch about something really quick? it's been really bothering me since I just read this part of Team Bingo's interview and I just need to let it out :
Reality TV World: Could you elaborate on why you have no respect for the Afghanimals -- "Cousins" Leo Temory and Jamal Zadran? Did you talk to them much?

Rowan Joseph: We did, but they were not -- that's the only team that, for us anyway, swore at us and just...

Shane Partlow: Made promises.

Rowan Joseph: Yeah, made promises -- a Muslim oath -- and then they'd completely break it. They were not -- they're completely 180-degrees opposite of us and anyone else that we encountered on the Race.

We are not fans of theirs at all. They lied to us blatantly to our face and they lied by taking what we considered to be "a special oath." They cheated us on money, they told us to go f-ck ourselves, they just made it clear that they didn't care about anything or anyone.

And that went for, not just us, but for all the teams -- except for the two girls [Allison "Ally" Mello and Ashley Covert], but it was clear what their intentions were there too.

So they were just -- and it was unfortunate, because [Ephraim] is a Muslim as well, and he pulled him aside and said, "You might want to consider..." they don't show any of that obviously, but everything that we value means nothing to them. So therefore, they mean nothing to us.

I mean, could a team possibly go on that level just to win a million dollars.... before tax?
That was HORRIBLE what they did. Completely!!!
sure this sort of thing won't get any air time whatsoever,
but seriously like WOAHHH!!! I am beyond surprised to say the least..

I haven't read much spoilers yet, but I knew from wiki that this season will visit United Arab Emirates for a Formula one racing task (which I am really looking forward to btw! #notimportant), and I can't help but notice some you here posted about how well the Indonesian TAR fans trailing the teams so I assumed they went back there again, surprise, surprise!
but anyway, those two countries are really huge muslim countries. so I wanna see how much these "animals" could endure being such hypocrites when they get there.

Indonesia, ELIMINATE THEM! It's always elimination leg there, right?  :funny:
just..such..awful..awful..human beings!!!!

Thanks! Glad I got that one out.  :whew

I'm glad TAR didn't show that. That would have generated even more hate against the muslim community. I just want to say Ephraim is muslim too and the issue here is with two individuals and please... don't bring religion into this debate okay? :) <3

of course TAR didn't show that. I'd be mortified. That was insane what they did.
and absolutely zero offense towards the muslim community (sorry if any was taken). I am a muslim myself.
the issue is solely focused on Leo and Jamal and Leo and Jamal only.
so please don't take anything the wrong way!
and thanks! I just want to let everyone notice how disgraceful of human beings they are  :)

Why on earth do they ruin any kind of suspense & leave 4 people left in episode 10 you no it is most likely going to be a NEL. So when they do it like this i always find episode 10 boring i dont want to NO before the episode has even started its a NEL  (:;) (:;)

I also hated leg10 F4 episodes, but they "need" the suspense on the previous leg. [I can't explain it well.]

What TAR could've done is: All NELs on or before the F6. The problem here (for them) is $$$. That's why earlier legs are often elimination legs.

I really liked their way of racing. But I do not think they made enough merits to be on an allstars, tbh.

Marie should have returned.

She should have. But there have been a ton of teams that didn't race a second time, and this is yet another example of a good racer not going for a second run. Her and Tim would've been called the ex-exes.
