Phil doing starting line. Travelling to coastline of South America... Winner of first leg wins double EP, one which is given to another team before the 5th leg. First clue is a phone call away... When Phil says go, proceed to the car and make a call to the other side of the world to receive instructions.

Good luck... Travel safe... GO.

Teams are dialing a number in their car... Proceed to Iquique Chile. Proceed to LAX. Only limited number of seats on the first flight. When you land, look for Javier.

Teams are excited that they're on the race.

WOAH THIS INTRO.

First flight lands. LOL LEO & JAMAL. "My wife is pregnant" as they run out of the airport.

Teams find Javier... Nicole & Travis: Roadblock! One team member will be paragliding and the other one will follow. The one who decides to take the roadblock is the one who is following. :lol: NFL shortly arrives.

This stream is a bit laggy...

Travis is the first to hangglide. Nicole tells her cab driver to drive to where Travis lands. Nicole speaks Spanish.

Chester is hanggliding. Ephraim gets his cab to follow.

Ally & Ashley, Leo & Jamal, Nicky & Kim and Rowan & Shane all arrive at the roadblock.

Afghanimals, Ally & Ashley, Kim & Marie left their cabs. Afghanimal calls 2 cabs for him and Ally & Ashley. Marie steals 1 of the 2 cabs... and now Afghanimal doesn't have a taxi.

Nicole is at the beach. NFL: "Look mom, no hands." :lol: NFL is at the beach. Both cab drivers stop too far from the landing place. Rowan & Shane are first to finish the roadblock. Proceed to Muelle Prat for the next clue. Nicole & Travis finish 2nd. NFL 3rd.

Nicole & Travis arrive at the clue. Roadblock. One person will have to collect 5 fish at one of the 3 marked fishing boats while rowing a row boat. The boats contain a limited number of fish. The teammate who was hanggliding has to do this roadblock.

Travis has to do the 2nd roadblock.

Brandon & Adam arrive at the 1st roadblock. They got tricked by the question. Jason & Amy and father & daughter arrive. Tim & Danny last to arrive.

Nicole says one of the EP is gold. Leo & Jamal are at the 2nd roadblock in 2nd. LOL seal makes noise at Jamal. Rowan has to do the roadblock.

Travis has his 5 fish collected from the same fishing boat.

Poor Naina, what a sad way to get eliminated.

Also this leg was such a mess for almost everyone, chaos across the board.

But to be honest the roadblocks were tricky to read.

Deliberate act I'd say, and it worked very well :)  :'(

Jason & Amy could've won the leg if only they were on the first flight!

I really miss teams ripping their first clue to find out their first destination. It's more exciting than finding out your first destination by calling number inside your car or something.

And I don't like the new graphics; it feels too modern for me :lol:

The casts are really trainwrecky :lol:

Overall, it's nice to have a new season of TAR and I hope the season gets better.  :hrt:

Hoskote & Naina :torche

I didn't like the leg design too. I don't like first leg thrill legs. The Roadblock was okay. Not a big fan of the new graphics. The first 5 seconds of the intro was cool and I liked the new logo. I didn't like the mix up song.

On the plus, there was great drama with misreading clues. <3 And no Express Pass alliance. <3 I like Travis & Nicole, Tim & Danny, Jason and Amy, and Rowan & Shane (And I wish they had more airtime, they seem really funny!) Something bugs me about the Baseball Wives, they seem scripted, even though I know they aren't.

I just wish we would have a more normal like leg for 1st legs instead of rushed exhilaration tasks.

Disappointing start to Season 23.

I think for a change they should put all 11 teams on the same flight and have less straight-forward tasks.

I would love to see another task like the empanadas in TAR 20, even if it wasn't SO memorable. The Double Roadblocks are getting old..

I don't mind the new graphics. They kinda look better to me :lol:

Post by: Dånooky on September 29, 2013, 08:40:36 PM
Here's my critique on the remaining themes:

1. Tim & Marie - they give me Nathan & Jennifer vibes, they could win unless they have a breakdown or they're behind a team who's running a flawless final
2. Nicole & Travis - after losing the Express Passes, I expect them to read every clue carefully and lead for the first few legs, but I think their penalty foreshadows a future critical mistake that will break them like Azaria & Hendekea
3. Rowan & Shane - I fell they'll attract lots of good luck with their optimism, but they will be at a huge disadvantage on a more physical leg.
4. Chester & Ephraim - too early to tell, but I feel a mental challenge or language barrier will be their downfall. Likely to be U-Turned if a smrt team gets ahead of them.
5. Nicky & Kim - I don't think we will see them excelling at anything, and at one point they just won't be able to keep up with the rest of the teams
6. Ally & Ashley - Too early to tell, hopefully they'll serve some Dustin & Kandice or Jaime & Cara realness, though they don't seem very competitive based on this first episode
7. Leo & Jamal - Too erratic. I need to see more of them to make an accurate prediction, but I feel they will make a huge blunder but will be saved by another team's mistake.
8. Jason & Amy - given the chance, I think they could perform quite well and surprise everyone else. However, they could be in danger of elimination before the next bunching.
9. Tim & Danny - They look like they could get the work done, but I think they will be defeated by cultural shock and having to face unfamiliar situations.
10. Brandon & Adam - They somehow seem like one of the slowest teams remaining, they say they're competitive but I just didn't see it this episode.

My prediction is that Tim & Marie will give the Express Pass to either Rowan & Shane or one of the F/F teams

Now, there's one thing bothering me. Previously when teams took the wrong form of transportation to the Pit Stop, Phil would just tell them to go back and do the right thing (except the first time with Heather & Eve in S3). Why did Phil immediately penalize Nicole & Travis instead of telling them to go back to the pier? Did the rules change or was there an unedited task between the pier and the check-in?
Title: Re: TAR 23 East Coast EP 1 SHOW updates and commentary **Please read the rules**

Maybe the didn't want other teams to figure out that you have to make your way on foot. And IIRC didn't Kent and Vyxsin in TAR18 take a taxi to the Pit Stop but were penalized 30 mintues? Maybe there was a rule change a while back?

Post by: DrRox on September 29, 2013, 08:52:31 PM
The first roadblock, "Follow the Leader" was the riding in the taxi, not the paragliding. Similar to the skydiving in what.......TAR 20. Sort of a reverse task. You get the teammate not expecting to do the paragliding having to do the paragliding......lol Tricky directions.

I can confirm there was no task between Roadblock and the Pitstop.

Also they were really close locations, 3 or 4 blocks from each other.

Why so much opening credits hate? I loved the new graphics and music (still don't like the standing scenes of teams). It is far better than that TAR18-22 bland concept.

As for the premiere, I feel like again, the editors push way too much into stuff and guess what results in that, it gets choppy. The airport scenes made this premiere better. I missed seeing teams communicating with each other. Hasn't happened since TAR17.

The tasks were sub-par on an obsessive fan standpoint. The paragliding & find task is basically a rehash of TAR20's skydive & find. Fail for originality. The second Roadblock looked challenging and the Double Roadblocks confused a couple teams, but was pretty dull.

Travis & Big-Eyed Nicole's penalty was pretty disappointing. :( I'll hope for the best that Tim & Marie will hand the stupid Express Passes to Team Bingo or Team Oklahoma.

Hoskote & Naina... I really thought they would be another Ronald & Christina charm...

I just rewatch it in better quality and there is something that is bugging me...

When the front of the pack were paragliding from Alto Hospicio, they landed on PLAYA BRAVA, that is why the clue said "Find your partner, they will be paragliding to one of Iquique's beaches and you'll have to be brave to get there" Playa Brava would be something like Brave Beach.

BUT when the back of the pack, Jason, Brandon, Hoskote and Tim landed, they did it on a different beach called PLAYA HUAIQUIQUE. It probably didn't affect the outcome of the race but is really bugging me, specially if the clue said something about Brave Beach.

Also, my house is visible when they were paragliding   :funny:

After i see the episode, i have to say i'm a little disappointed too.

It was a good premier, but i don't know... I'm sad for Hoskote and Naina. Travis and Nicole too..

At first i was having a "bad" opinion for Ally and Ashly, but i think both females teams are fantastic! Funny and friendly..

For me, Leo and Jamal are so annoying. :/

Rowan and Shane have ended up being a surprise team! I like it!

I don't like so much that the two first legs are in the same country.

I'm a little angry because Tim and Marie have removed the Express Pass to Travis and Nicole...

I have to say... NICOLE AND TRAVIS FOR THE WIN!!! :)

I loved that there's 2 Roadblocks, and relatively related to the country. To be frank, I wished they showed more of the paragliding and that the sky was brighter. Would have been a great and epic season opener.

Afghanimals... too noisy for me. Doctors... too compeititve for me... Timarie... too bickering for me...

The ones that really stood out for me = Team Jordin Sparks, Team Baseball Moms/Spidey-Bless-Mom, Team Bingo! and maybe TEAM-WE-NEED-THE-MONEY-AND-REPEAT-THIS-ON-NATIONAL-TV-SO-THAT-THE-PRODUCERS-CAN-MILK-THIS-STORY-OUT-OF-US.

Oh, Team Awkward Childhood friends were quite fun to watch too. :funny:

In all, not too bad a season opener! I'll remember the paragliding at least! I don't even remember who got eliminated first last season or where did teams go to. :funny:

hey everybody I am new so go easy on me okaay  :waves: :waves: :waves:'

just want to share some thoughts...

the premiere is just MEEH! I am disappointed to say the least. Can't believe they're bringing back the double EP twist.  Can't believe the second flight was 2,5 hours I mean what's up with that !!! There's zero way the back-packers could catch up

And the teams?? :gaah: :gaah: :gaah: :gaah:
I just HATE the Afghanimals!!! They think they're so cool being loud and funny and cheerful ... it turned out to be soo obnoxious and annoying and like SHUT UP!!! Aligning themselves with the Blondes "Hockey-guys-Country-gilrs"style from last season is just sooo... sad! sad sad sad  :pity

Both F/F teams are very decent. But I doubt any of them will dominate.

The ER doctors are okay. So competitive. They came off a little bit too cocky though.

Marie&Tim are good TV. Although they just can't stop highlighting each other on how Marie is yelling all the time or how Tim is just dumb...but overall I like'em.  :hoot: When Tim was like "Thank god I was paragliding coz I got to get away with her even just for a few minutes" LMAO!!! Glad they got the EP.  :cheer:

And the Oklahoma guys are just so SWEET!!!  :hearts: hearts: hearts:  with their big hearts and their innocence and their pure intention coming into the race... I doubt they went far but hopefully they won a leg or a couple. Seeing them got the boots will be really heartbreaking though .. :(

Team Boston seems like they're gonna be the underdogs-trying-to-take-over. I like'em  :hrt: :hrt: :hrt:

the rests, I don't even remember them ... don't blame me!

and what is up with the second RB? two teams fucked up!!!!! well almost. It would be really funny if they were completely unaware until they reached the pit-stop and incurred  4-hour penalty and be like "WHAA!!! WHAT THE FUCK, PHIL!!!!"and Phil will be like "NO NO NO, YOU what the fuck! what is the matter with you! the clue was in freakin' English you morons."... LOOOL that would be epic!! Amazing race first!!!!  :funny: :funny: :funny:

Overall boring premiere. No shakin' up like last season's premiere when they all got equalized on the second RB
too predictable
the tasks are boring also.

Based on the editing,teams that would go far I think : Afghanimals+Blondes alliance; Doctors; Marie&Tim
Teams I WANT to see go far : Oklahoma guys; Jason&Amy; Marie&Tim (final 3 dream for the season, fingers crossed)

still looking forward for next episodes ...

Just watched the show (really long time waiting for it today - normally would do it like 6 hour earlier). Don't have much opinion yet - Afghanimals for me were annoying in the pre-race footage, in the episode I started to change my mind (still not sure). The rest of the teams don't gave me any distinct feelings so I guess I would need more episodes  :)

Really liked the trick with the roadblocks instructions  :)

Actually the most important is that I can't wait for leg in my country! [hope I'm not breaking any rules by writing it here  ;) but it's just something that keeps staying in the back of my mind this season ;D  :colors]

Relly happy for people who had a chance to see the crew in action this season  :conf: :cheer:. Wish could do it to but still glad to get some insight form inside the race production  :waves:;)

I was too tired Sunday night to suggest it, but I think an appropriate reference to the type of roadblock we saw with the paragliding (where the chosen team member doing the roadblock had to follow the other team member to the beach) as a reverse roadblock; how that makes sense should be fairly obvious.

Loved the opening of the race. On CBS extras we find Travis & Nicole made a BIG mistake at the beginning, but were able to recoup. The extras on team Bingo were very good, too bad they edit out so much of the team interactions. I love the extras on CBS.com.
Did not like Marie as much as I thought I would, liked the afghanimals more, liked Bingo a lot, like Boston more than I thought I would. No one to dislike yet.
Loved the starting line. Disappointed with the time difference between the two flights.

Here's a link to the second part of the interview with Hoskote and Naina on Reality TV World where Naina explains that the flights were only supposed to be a half hour apart but were delayed.   That is really too bad because a half hour difference is nothing and places could have changed a lot on the second roadblock.   The teams on the second flight could have finished before teams on the first flight.  :gaah:

I don't get the people who say it was so amazing... IMO, there was nothing special. It was pretty middle of the road... the tasks, the location, the cast... I mean, somebody said that last season's was pretty unmemorable, but the sky diving in Bora Bora was spectacular! One of the most scenic premieres in the history of the show.
This one was like... okay so I guess the paragliding with the dunes and the ocean is kinda nice... the rowing task was just ok, decent in the sense that some teams could make a mistake by the wording of the clue, but not exciting for a premiere... the teams were just ok, the Afghanimals are pretty annoying, thought I would like Tim/Marie but they had no real spark yet, I usually like the F/F teams, but these are pretty generic. WAY too many M/M teams.  but I guess Chester/Ephraim are kinda nice, as are the Oklahoma boys. I THINK I might root for Jason/Amy, but I really dont know. Nobody really stood out for me...they were all just sort of there, or annoying.

I don't know, I was like very underwhelmed for my favorite tv show... hopefully it picks up and the cast begins to deliver.

Edited because I forgot to mention about the new intro, also I don't get why so many people hate it. I really like it, and the new music is great as well. Love the new instruments.

Also, forgot about this. i really felt for Naina. She seemed really excited for this and the only thing she did was ride in a cab. The design of the double roadblock was crappy, because she didn't do any real task.

I don't get the people who say it was so amazing... IMO, there was nothing special. It was pretty middle of the road... the tasks, the location, the cast...

This times trillions.

Out of all the Races, this one takes the cake as the most disappointing. From the cast to the starting line to Hoskote's unapologetic elimination, it was a downhill spiral that landed like a stick in wet sand. I'd say it was very unmemorable and felt more like a *gulp* video travel log than a race. :P

Iquique has a bright and old-classy casino, good surf sights at the beaches, and a historic part of town called Paseo Baquedano fit for a Chilean traditional task, and out of all places, they feature a boat marina and its fish? This is telling me the producers either need to fire the current route creators and rehire the old ones, or retrain them to know what quality control for task creating is since the second Roadblock was not appealing and the paragliding was another skydiving from TAR20.

Just had to lay it out there.

I just rewatch it in better quality and there is something that is bugging me...

When the front of the pack were paragliding from Alto Hospicio, they landed on PLAYA BRAVA, that is why the clue said "Find your partner, they will be paragliding to one of Iquique's beaches and you'll have to be brave to get there" Playa Brava would be something like Brave Beach.

BUT when the back of the pack, Jason, Brandon, Hoskote and Tim landed, they did it on a different beach called PLAYA HUAIQUIQUE. It probably didn't affect the outcome of the race but is really bugging me, specially if the clue said something about Brave Beach.

The second batch of teams got a different clue which told them to go to Huaiquique beach.

Are you sure? I was wondering because I could tell the back of the pack did the paragliding with a different company than the first one. Maybe the second company had Huaiquique Beach as a usual landing spot.

Pretty sure, both clues are shown in the episode.

OH! Didn't notice it, I'll check later I guess, thank you, such a minor detail was messing with my mind for some reason.

The idea of having to use a different company and a different landing spot for the same roadblock task is unusual. I don't recall ever hearing or seeing something like that before. Which makes the fact that we were shown the different information even more unusual.

Clue shown when Brandon&Adam were on-screen
You were right, they were directly sent to Huaiquique Beach.
This is a little bit weird.

I can confirm there were at least 2 paragliding companies, one was OASISFLY, this was tweeted that day:

@leslie_vega_ Es Amazing Race ....con un hermetismo tal, que @oasisfly no contesta el telefono

Is TAR, with such secrecy than @oasisfly doesn't answer the phone.

Oasisfly is a paragliding company.

They were involved in the front of the pack. (Trust me on this one)

Then we have "Parapente Ikike" or "Parapente Iquique" I think they are related,  their websites have the same pics and the same description, "El latigo" is the nickname of one of their pilots and is seen in the back of the pack... not sure if there is more than that... the landing spot is still a mystery to me...

Perhaps the reason they used two companies is that they wanted to be prepared to handle all teams at once. That is they needed 11 different instructors with tandem chutes ready.

This would be needed if the first flight got delayed  and all the teams arrived more or less at the same time. I assume that it takes quite a while to perform the flight, pack up the chute and drive back up to the starting position and make ready for another flight.

Probably, it takes like 20-30 minutes to paraglide down to the beach, and another 20-30 minutes to go back to Iquique... that's without time to gather the equipement and check it for safety.
