I actually don't buy it. :lol:
Maybe they were considered, but now that it's been made public, I'd be very surprised to actually see them racing.

I've never watched BB, but the folks at work who do say they are far less annoying than Brendan and Rachel.

I hope that is the only known team and it's a completely normal season other than them, such as seasons 16 and 20.

Jessica and Cody will be fun to watch. Jessica is gorgeous and full of pep, while Cody is a real stone-faced, never-cared, i-dont-wanna-be-here guy, but he's a fierce competitor. It should also be interesting to see if their relationship, which started in the BB house, can withstands the rigors of the race.

The BB fans are split on this. Because of their edit, TV Onlies love them. Live-Feeders saw a different side and they aren't happy. Any way this plays out, it will be interesting.

As a live feeder myself in a past life  :D, I definitely trust the live feeders more than the TV only-fans. lol

I'm just meh on them though since I really didn't follow BB19 other whatever Julie and Rachel were tweeting lol
But with CBS hyping them up this much, it would be hilarious if they are an early elimination or are a boring, irrelevant team. lol

As a live feeder, I can tell you they don't get along with anyone.  They pretty much hate all people in general.  Another site that keeps tallies of everything that goes on in the BB house all summer tallied that there were 30 fights in the BB house, and Jessica and Cody were involved in 26 (obviously most of them never made it on the show).  There were only 4 fights in the house after they were evicted.  This is not a couple that can work with other people.  Fortunately, I don't see them going far because they will literally be running this race by themselves (or they will be the first victim of the U-turn)

This is just pathetic that CBS and TAR producers still believe that crossovers increase ratings when that has only occurred once (TAR 7).

Which will quite possibly then translate into them being rude to locals everytime they don't get their way :(

Like you said in the other thread, this is more about brand-building by CBS than hopes of increasing the ratings in any meaningful way. From the various interviews over the years, Moonves and TPTB at CBS are apparently very involved in almost all aspects of the show (locations, but casting especially). Almost to the point that Bertram and Elise have to reluctantly agree. At least, that's the impression I got from many interviews where they mention Moonves.

Post by: gamerfan09 on September 28, 2017, 09:47:55 AM
To be fair to CBS trying to boost ratings, this may be a wise decision - BB19 had an ENORMOUS audience (it dominated the entire summer TV ratings wise unless Game of Thrones was on) and doing a crossover as soon as possible while the season is still fresh in most viewers' minds may benefit us in the long run. They could even air this season with Celebrity Big Brother or air the premiere on that season's finale.

The potential is there.

I refuse to pay for the feeds, but I read the updates daily.  I'm not sure that using the number of fights in the house is a fair assessment of them.  Yes Cody was a jerk during his HoH that first week.  Telling Megan that he nominated her for eviction because he didn't like her was uncalled for.  However, the majority of the fights didn't appear to be caused by Cody or Jess but were instead instigated by Paul and company.  I'm also not sure you can judge how they'll treat people on the race by the way they acted in the house.  Sure they should have been nicer and not have secluded themselves, but considering the negativity and hostility directed at them I can't really blame them.  I guess it depends on which camp you're in as to how you make the comparison.  If you thought that the negativity and hostility was the result of how they were acting; then, they're going to be awful racers.  If you thought that their actions were in response to the negativity and hostility; then, they're going to be competitive fun to watch racers.  If you're in the middle like me and don't know or care which came first, the chicken or the egg; then, it's a toss up.

I am in the same boat as you - I don't watch US feeds, but follow the Updaters. I think your assessment is spot on. I would just like to add for those that aren't aware, there were periods when Jessica and Cody were separated and had to play individually. (Cody was evicted, won a buy-back, Jessica evicted, then Cody evicted 2nd time) Many fans believed they were better players and more sociable/likeable when apart. I think it's fair to say most of their hostility towards others resulted from trying to defend each other (to the point of their own detriment), so it will be interesting to see how that translates to TAR.

I honestly think they will be a great team with no controversy or rude behaviour whatsoever.
Cody might be emotionless again, but I definitely see Jess really appreciating the world around her.

Same here, I have not seen Big Brother US Version but to me, my first impressions are: Jessica looks enthusiastic and fun while Cody looks stiff. But since they're madly in love I do hope they are not a "standard dating couple". IMO most Dating teams I've seen on TAR were bland and uninteresting, few were memorable.

I have to agree with Platrium, that I really enjoy the variety of occupations, though. :lol:

I wouldn't really say that's very different than other seasons though
 Every season from maybe 15 on has at least 2-3 teams of z-list celebrities.

Just to clarify  ...

Jody were popular with both live feeders and casuals.  After a bad start, they became the bullied underdog players that were 1 and 2 at the top of BB rankings for the last half of the year (and this was when they were both out of the house).  And Cody easily won America's Favourite Player vote this season.

Jody will be the most popular team this year and should do quite well in the race  ...

Agreed. I see them as ill-prepared as well. Look at it this way:

Cody was on the jury, so he had to stick around for the rest of the season. Jessica was not, so she was sent home. If they'd just gotten the call to go on the race when it ended on the 20th, that's...a week and a half that they were able to prepare and train together.

And I don't want to see them do like what happened to Cody on BB, with a twist like TAR China from last year that allowed an eliminated team to be revived a week later. Once they're out, they're out.

Cody was told before BB19 ended, and Jessica knew well before the finale.
They're both really fit physically, so I think they'll be a strong team.

Wonder if this is because of the Winter Olympics airing on NBC in February and CBS is trying to pull in the fans from these shows to counteract the Olympics.  Not that I watch the Olympics...

That would be a poor decision on CBS' behalf.  Almost every show will be on reruns in February.

Could be but I happen to know a lot of people that would rather watch a new season of something like TAR than reruns or Olympics.  During the last Olympics, there were no discussions about them at all where I worked.  Absolutely no one watched them and that includes me.

Will definitely be interesting to see where it lands on the TV schedule.

Hoping this season delivers! Getting a season 20 and 23 vibe from the cast! Also hope the FF teams last. I don't see Dessie and Kayla lasting but the other 2 ff teams have potential.

I'm going to put my prediction down here and revisit it after the season to see how bad I did. :funny: :funny:

My winner pick right now is Alex and Conor.
Top 5 Teams (1-5):Alex/Conor, Henry/Evan, Trevor/Chris, April/Sarah, Lifeguards
Bottom 6 Teams (6-11): Kristi/Jen, Twins, Dessie/Kayla, Jessica/Cody, Joey/Tim, Shawn/Cedric

Post by: TARUSAFan on October 02, 2017, 01:41:43 AM
This was a huge surprise for me. In my cast wishlist, some of the teams that I'd like to see on The Amazing Race are:

1. Pro Racecar Drivers - It has been a dream of mine to be one
2. Athletic F/F Team, preferably representing the US in a sport.
3. Moms both aged 40 and above with something unique about them.
4. Lifeguards

This season gave me all this. I cannot believe it.  :conf:

Also, the return of Iceland.  :conf:

If they're visiting underused European countries such as Finland and visit new European countries such as Latvia. I'd be really happy.

The only negative for me is the overload of M/M teams. 5 again like S.4 & S.23. They could have balanced it with 4 M/M and 4 F/F then 3 M/F. I like the lesser M/F since we've had an overload of them last season with 9 teams. Hoping that the Racecar Drivers, the F/F teams and the Debaters last long.

Didn't mean it like that. It's just me (probably), but I'm more excited for everyone else on this cast.

Another CBS reality show crossover is just meh after so many times. I'm surprised that someone hasn't been on all three shows yet. I shouldn't give TPTB any ideas, because I'm sure that's going to happen.

Great first impression, CBS, tease the actual loyal TAR viewers on social media with one team, the one that's probably going to be the most despised of all (lots of ugly comments, threats to skip this season based on that one team), and then don't give them anyone else. Better hope they go all the way to keep the Jody fans tuning in for the ratings' sake =/

I am also a long time BB live feeder (and new here). If you met me IRL you would never believe I was the type, but I love this show. I love seeing the opinion of "the casuals" (TV only folks) vs the crazy livefeeder. We see a very different show many times. IMO, when BB started this past season, Jess & Cody were two of my least favorites. I would say that was pretty much the general consensus.  But as the days/weeks wore on my opinion changed. Virtually none of the HG were playing to win the money. Only Paul the former & present 2nd place finisher & Jess & Cody.  Cody has views that I don't agree with, Jess is an interesting person with a very interesting backround.

As weeks woree on we got to see how awful the others HG were at BB. Why sign up to win 500K and a potential 3+ months away from your family to help someone else win. Other than Jess & Cody nearly all HG were in it to win it for Paul.  Made no sense. Then there were the taunts to try & trigger Cody's PTSD, just so ugly.  So even if I hate Cody's views on many things, I found myself rooting for "Jody." They come to play the game.  Jess is definately more "mouthy," but they both come to play & that will be fun to see imo.  Nice to meet you all. We are in NYC & my daughter & her friends went to the kick-off and had a blast.  I've only watched TAR sporatically over the years, but I am looking forward to next year, when this airs.

I am also a long time BB live feeder (and new here). If you met me IRL you would never believe I was the type, but I love this show. I love seeing the opinion of "the casuals" (TV only folks) vs the crazy livefeeder. We see a very different show many times. IMO, when BB started this past season, Jess & Cody were two of my least favorites. I would say that was pretty much the general consensus.  But as the days/weeks wore on my opinion changed. Virtually none of the HG were playing to win the money. Only Paul the former & present 2nd place finisher & Jess & Cody.  Cody has views that I don't agree with, Jess is an interesting person with a very interesting backround.

As weeks woree on we got to see how awful the others HG were at BB. Why sign up to win 500K and a potential 3+ months away from your family to help someone else win. Other than Jess & Cody nearly all HG were in it to win it for Paul.  Made no sense. Then there were the taunts to try & trigger Cody's PTSD, just so ugly.  So even if I hate Cody's views on many things, I found myself rooting for "Jody." They come to play the game.  Jess is definately more "mouthy," but they both come to play & that will be fun to see imo.  Nice to meet you all. We are in NYC & my daughter & her friends went to the kick-off and had a blast.  I've only watched TAR sporatically over the years, but I am looking forward to next year, when this airs.

Welcome NYCMOM!  :conf:

I felt the same way first about Jess and Cody. My boyfriend didn’t watch the feeds and is just a casual viewer. He LOVED Jess and Cody. I remember giving him attitude and saying what I didn’t like about them and how the live feeds showed the real personalities. Then the house started bullying them even though they were the underdogs and already the next targets. I remember Cody going home and wishing for him to come back to take care of Paul. I love Jess and Cody from like week 2-3 on

Agreed. That was the leg of the ditch pole vaulting, lifting the furniture through the window (one of the moments I remember Kent & Vyxsin most for) and Ron being the controlling dad.

Wasn't high on the last one in 26, it was pretty much a Roadblock/Detour/Pit Stop leg, the kind I dislike the most. Hayley going ballistic with her lopsided helmet is the only thing that saved that episode for me.

Still kinda hoping this is just a transfer, though. Too many recent visits.

:welcome2: to RFF NYCMOM!  I did not watch this season so really appreciate your insights. Live feeds are way different from the show...

Could you do us a little summary?  Probs with others, controversy, best strengths? I was unaware of his PTSD...very sorry to hear that and hope the race does not aggravate it. Anything more would help those of us who did not watch  understand them better!

You can't say that They're going to Amsterdam. Amsterdam is the only major airport for the entirity of the Netherlands so it could be anywhere but I'm praying it's a connection as the Netherlands is too overused. A nice train ride to Bruges would be apreciated.

Brussels airline have many Western African destinations;

Accra
Abidjan
Banjul
Conakry
Cotonou
Dakar
Douala
Freetown
Kinshasa
Lome
Luanda
Oauagadougou
Yaounde

This means that we have a high chance of West Africa and I would hope for Dakar, Banjul, Accra & Abidjan.

Usually rail travel is involved between Europe legs,
For convenient train travel, cities with direct train from Belgium should have high chances

Germany (Frankfurt / Cologne / Small towns like Bonn / Mainz / Heidhberg) (with self-driving)
Austria (Salzburg / Innsbruck)

I doubt they will visit Indonesia this time because there's an active volcano, mount Agung curently at level 4 alert (the highest) and could erupt anytime. More than 140.000 residents have been evacuated. If it erupted, it could affect the flight to Indonesia, Australia, and Oceania. Some countries have issued travel warning to their citizens including US and Australia.

This. Hope there's no Germanic countries visit (but I can let it pass if they able to visit the new/underused locale like Cologne, Dusseldorf, or even a full leg featured in urban area of Frankfurt/Bern/Zurich) and this season need to be consistence with visit more underused/unvisited countries and locale after we finally get another Iceland and Belgium visit for such a long time.

I just got back from work for the week and oh my goodness! Goodies everywhere! I am ecstatic to be witnessing the THIRTIETH SEASON of TAR in the making! Now that my shock has subsided a little, time for a little personal analysis.

The good I'm seeing: Iceland, perfection! Hopefully we'll see Random Bag Lady again. So glad Belgium is visited again despite all the recent tragic attacks throughout Europe. Goes to prove that no illogical, deranged person can totally stop the power of travel. :hoot:
Goat yoga moms, Shawn Marion! (Go Cavs!), Brook & Claire 2.0 in skiers bodies, Joey Chestnut the Coney Island King, and studly violinists (hopefully won't end up like Elliot & Andrew).

The bad: Another dating Big Brother team as if 3, especially Brendon & Rachel, weren't enough already, another firefighter team with the typical twins mold, conspicuously phony task setups (Icelandic powerlifting team in the middle of a plaza, Antwerp sunflower costumes in the middle of a plaza).

Hopefully for the remaining F/F teams, not sighted means not seen only and not eliminated. I normally would root for the F/F teams since it's very rare for them to make the Final 5 in modern seasons and since S.28, all F/F teams did poorly or below average in tasks. Can TAR cast stronger F/F something more of the caliber of Dustin & Kandice, Jaime & Cara, Kisha & Jen Brooke & Claire, Nat & Kat, Natalie & Nadiya and Kym & Alli.

Skiers are somebody I could see making top 5 at least.

But I hope and pray that they are not the first 3 teams out. That would suck. :groan:

It would definitely suck having the 3 F/F's leave consecutively. I've seen some videos of the Ring Girls and they're loads of fun. They both affectionately call themselves as "sisters" in some of their posts together and I'm getting Tiffany & Krista vibes from both of them which I like. I'm fully aware of their Ninja Warrior background of the Goat Yoga Moms as I watch American Ninja Warrior as well. I'm just hoping that the Goat Yoga Moms & Pro Skiers turn up soon like how Burnie & Ashley did in the sightings in Season 28 where they just popped out of nowhere in Georgia. On another note, the Indy 500 as well.

Hi guys
Decided to join the fun. After attending the live start and seeing where they have gone so far, I'm excited from what I've seen. Hopefully the route continues to be impressive.

All 3 FF teams are first 3 teams out? Are you serious? I will not watch this season then.

Can they cast for once competent FF teams? We had 10 FF teams in last 4 seasons and only one who were able to place better than 8th place were Tiffany & Krista.

Thanks God for fereigner versions of TAR, they are doing much better job with casting FF teams.

THIS! The trend for F/F teams on TAR are a flop since S.28 technically S.27 with the exception of Tiffany & Krista who started at the back of the pack but slowly moved up the ranks and were finishing in mid or front pack of the Race. They may not be the strongest but they had the drive and motivation unlike others. Others were just "not" of standard to be on the Race.  I'm looking at you Kelly & Shevonne (who finishes a 6x6 slider puzzle in nearly 4 hours), Jazmine & Danielle (They are physically fit, but the way I see it, it's the little mistakes that let you down and it's what's gonna send you home.), Marty & Hagan (leaving their taxi too far), Brittany & Jessica (bitter about not being helped, hello this is a RACE! You could have smoked those who are having their alliance. This is not Amazing Friend), Erin & Joslyn (Obviously not strong) and most recently Jessie & Francesca (Seriously, you are asking help from a team whom you are battling for last place, why on earth did she even believe Sara).  :groan: At least I have 3 other teams to root for that are still in it (Indy 500 Racers, Dating Lifeguards, Team Jody). Half of my Top 6 are gone  :groan:

To be fair, the F/F team slaughter, though not pretty, does not necessarily mean a bad season :P Look at TAR29!

That said, it's embarrassing how much the all-female teams have faltered since TAR25 ended lol. Production needs to cast stronger ones.

The thing is, look at the occupations of the teams you named: TV hosts, models, cheerleaders, etc. Occupations that revolve around looking good, which doesn't exactly translate into racing ability. You get their opening intro where they pretty much say they're there to be eye candy ("we're going to use our looks to get ahead"). 21 to 25 we had that team archetype of "matching blonde women".

We appear to have had more of the right type this season, women with athletic backgrounds, and they're still looking like the first boots at this point. So I don't know what to say :(

A thing I can't understand with the US version, too, is why they seem hesitant to cast lesbian couples. Even in 26, the love season, they didn't take that perfect opportunity and cast 2 male gay teams.

Think its more of they cast too many M/M teams this season atleast even it out , i mean the violenist and the indy and the basketball teams are gonna be hard to get out. I pray Jody can take them out one by one.  :conf:

You are on point here. We did have women with athletic backgrounds and still they flopped. That remains a mystery ???  There were women who were pretty but did strong in the past. Beauty Queens Dustin & Kandice and Home Shopping Hosts Brooke & Claire, Former NFL Cheerleaders Jaime & Cara. I'd add Doctors Nat & Kat as well. The only thing that I'm banking on is at least one of them gets through or has not been seen yet but it looks dim already.

I'm probably in the minority for this, but I'm finding this route rather uninspiring. Considering production's been sitting on this for a year, I would have thought they'd come up with a bolder route for 30. I feel these are all places I'd consider on a casual trip around Europe, not a challenging sprint around the globe.

Seconded.

Back to the same overvisited North African country just five seasons later, when Tunisia exists?

Back to the same region of France four seasons ago, when Bordeaux and Lyon remain unvisited?

It's this very cheapskate mentality that caused the show to lose three Emmys in a row.

I don't think he meant it in a disrespectful way.

He was basically just saying that the Jody fans must be very nervous seeing as we havn't spotted them since Morroco.

However, as we saw with the Skiers, anything is possible. If a team isnt seen, it doesnt mean they are eliminated.

Once we have seen everyone else though and we just had an nonelimination leg, at that point i would start panicking. Go Jody! <3

They could have done legs in Spain, Andorra, Croatia, Czech Republic, Slovenia, Romania. 1 France leg, fine but 2 legs?!?! France now gets 15 Pit Stops. It's like Indonesia in S.19-23 minus S.20
(France: S.26-30 minus S.29)

Quick question, how sure are we that France is two leg?

I mean do we know 100% when Phil was spotted in Arles? Spec is October 10, but I don't think it was confirmed...
Maybe it could have been the first part of the Saint-Tropez leg? Or it was the start of the Prague leg, like they did last season in Greece, make them travel a few hours for one task.

There have been a bunch of claims that have come through here that I don’t quite get, or have been later proven to be wrong:

Jody coming in first in Iceland, despite NONE of our eyewitnesses (some of which posted here directly) stating any pit-stop placements beyond the boxers coming in last
Any sort of leg placement in Belgium, despite us not having sights on the pit stop
The only 8 teams in Morocco episode, later proven wrong by seeing all 9 remaining teams after Morocco
Lifeguards being eliminated because they were standing next to the Basketballers, later proven wrong by their presence in Prague
Only 2 M/F teams making it to Prague, later proven wrong by photo evidence of all 3 being there

These are only the big ones

Guys, PLEASE STOP trying to claim assumptions/speculation as fact, it is slowing the process down and muddling things up for us

We hesitate to make assumptions because we’re only getting little snippets of info, and not the full picture

re: France being overused

- cities/regions of France visited on TAR: Paris, Marseilles/Provence, Corsica, Normandy, the Loire Valley, Nice and surrounding areas, Mt. Blanc, and now St. Tropez
- cities/regions of Germany visited on TAR: Munich (to eventually go to Bavaria), Berlin, Hamburg

#StandForFrance

Also in general I don't really mind if a country is "overused" as long as the tasks are good and culturally relevant. We could probably have a Tokyo leg every season and still miss out on something, for instance especially if we keep having ridiculous game shows instead of actual tasks.

For some of the newer members who may think RFF is not living up to its reputation as a blockbuster spoiler site, it should be said that this is just the current nature of the game.

Two major factors may lead to this conclusion this year:
1. This was a public start.
2. There is a very popular BB team racing, along with some very noticeable Basketball players and Indy drivers, etc.

If you look back a few years, RFF has been very instrumental in spoiling TAR (non-public) starting lines.  One of the most memorable to me was TAR15, which started in the Los Angeles River channel.

Even though I am classified as a "TAR Detective" I haven't been very active in recent years.  I have a great deal of admiration for those who spend countless hours searching for every clue they can find.

So, thank you RFF and the great Detectives for a job well done!!

Might not end up being there. You know what happens a lot of times when they go to an African country. They land there, and then they immediately hop on a bushplane to somewhere out in the wild.

Dunno, if production apparently feels it's stable enough, a Zimbabwe return wouldn't be all that bad considering the first time was barely like 2 miles inside the country. This time going somewhere deeper into it.

How do we know that the remaining teams aren't all unlikeable?

I just find it odd that teams are already disliked, while others praised, solely based on their gender make-up

Sometimes my favorite for a season is M/M, some times, M/F, and others it's F/F- I find it weird that so many people limit themselves to only one gender set, or at very least completely avoid another type of gender set

One season is still less than the 3 visits by TAR as well as several other visits with international TAR. For me, if Zimbabwe is visited, I'm hoping for Harare because a Victoria Falls visit after TAR 27 would be too soon even if Zimbabwe is a lesser visited nation.

I agree that I have loved teams of all gender types, but personally, 90% of the time I find myself rooting for F/F teams. Idk why actually.
And more often than not, I dislike M/M teams, although, for example I liked Matt & Redmon from last season a lot.

This is of course based on completely nothing, and has 0 proof or anything, but I feel like the Indy racers might be really boring, basketball players generally invisible and pretty bland as well, while there might be potential in violinists and eaters. But the latter, based on spoilers as well, is I think will be an underdog, bottomgod type team. :lol:

Just my 2 cents. But I would have loved the goat yoga moms to persevere and make it far. And ring girls seemed like a reall strong team, so I'm beyond surprised they were out first, and wanna find out why. :(

Not confirmed, but there was wide speculation pre-season that Fiji would be visited. And I'm really hoping for that!

I wonder if someone was behind the violinists and they got to u turn someone as well. Hopefully that saved them

Why do you want a team who was U-Turn'ed to be saved?

Personally while I know it's part of the game, I would rather someone go out for their own undoing than a U-Turn

well to be fair their own undoing was not making it to the uturn before the other teams (if they are gone).
Taking this here, because it doesn't belong in the speculation thread.

To be honest, I love that there's such a mechanic as a U-Turn in the race, because it adds a strategic element to the race, allthewhile not changing the overall spirit of the show. But yeah, it's usually sad when teams are eliminated purely because of a U-Turn. And even making it to the U-Turn board behind the pack doesn't mean that the particular team wouldn't have caught up before the pit stop if there was no U-Turn.

That was the main reason why people were mad at the U-Turns being placed before Detours in S29 - the teams making it to the board depended more on luck that ever. And so I hope that wasn't the case in Prague, although some people were speculating that.

China is overused. I don't care how many times they go - it's been beaten with a stick. Find somewhere else to go. (That pretty much goes for the whole route. I haven't been following along as much as I want to, but this whole thing seems bland/overused?)

Zimbabwe, underused but recently visited. Is this already confirmed? Still though, I would have preferred South Africa. A family friend went to Cape Town & Johannesburg recently and it is beautiful right now, it's spring. I would be surprised if they suddenly jump to Oceania, which I do hope happens. It's something new for the route.

I don't get the auto M/M hate? I do get that there's an abnormally high amount of them this season, but how do we know they aren't going to be awesome, likeable teams?

How do we know that the remaining teams aren't all unlikeable?

I just find it odd that teams are already disliked, while others praised, solely based on their gender make-up

Sometimes my favorite for a season is M/M, some times, M/F, and others it's F/F- I find it weird that so many people limit themselves to only one gender set, or at very least completely avoid another type of gender set

Interesting question, normally I would root for all types of teams. It varies per season. I look at the personality of the teams, the team dynamics, the bios and the type of relationship they have. I've been vocal about the F/F teams because a majority of them sucked in recent seasons from S.27 to S.29 with the exception of Tiffany & Krista who've made the Final 4. I miss the F/F teams that go all the way to the end or at least are finishing in the upper positions. I'm disappointed with the Ring Girls and Goat Yoga Instructors going out first back to back. So I'm hoping for the Pro Skiers to go further. The M/M team that I'm rooting for this season are the Indy 500 Racers because 1st, I am a car enthusiast, 2nd I' m a frustrated racer, I wanted to pursue that but it is an expensive sport or a hobby so I had to discontinue. I find the other M/M teams in this season have the alpha male written all over them such as the Violinists and the NBA Players. The Twins look bland to me, first impression they seem to be like Matt & Daniel, Idries & Jamil and Michael & Scott.

That's true

Unfinished Business was almost exclusively countries that had several to MANY visits, yet I remember enjoying it a lot (and it being generally well received), despite that fact.

It had memorable tasks, memorable teams, memorable rivalries, memorable locations, memorable mistakes, and many memorable moments

I think those things determine my enjoyment more than what country it happens to be in

This. I'm actually rooting for the competitive eaters most having bumped into Joey Chestnut at a food fair once before. He is a genuinely nice and jovial person outside of his recognized activity. I can't wait to watch him and Tim travel around the world. But hopefully no eating tasks this season otherwise they'd have a huge advantage. :lol: I have yet to get a picture with him.

I also don't want to be *THAT* person, but it's kind of funny seeing that, despite of how adamant the fans are of Jody doing well, they've been presumably near the bottom for 3 legs in a row (assuming they were 4th/5th/6th out of 7 teams in Czech, potentially 5th out of 6 teams in Zimbabwe after potentially getting U-Turned, and potentially 4th out of 5 teams in Bahrain).

I do like them preshow (despite the... interesting state of the speculation getting very very exhausting to stay excited for them), but if they actually did end up being a team that bottomgodded throughout most of the Race, it would be much better TV than blandly dominating the season.

Very nice observation gamerfan! It just shows how dominating other teams are with an exception of lifeguards who I think screwed up in this leg big time. They were 1st to start this leg! Jody would have been out had it not been due to this messup by lifeguards. Anyways, I don't think this screw up will happen everytime!
I honestly see Jody getting eliminated next cuz other teams just look so strong and have proved it also!

The bottom line is that a team doesn't have to win....they just have to not come in last! On some legs, where they are at the mercy of a  directionally challenged cab driver, or if there is a language barrier, the teams can't control those things....may times it's just luck.

The route has gotten so much better. A new country! Hooray for Bahrain. Most legs in the Gulf Region always end up in the United Arab Emirates. This is breath of fresh air for me and Phil's want to visit country. That brings us with 89 countries on The Amazing Race. I'm hoping they pull an Oceania leg up soon. I mean S.9 did it with Oman --> Australia. They could do:

1. Bahrain --> Australia (2 Legs)
2. Bahrain --> Any underused Asian country (Cambodia, Taiwan) or new country (Laos) --> Fiji


It just dawned on me that Evan and Henry are the unfittest team still standing, yet they've now outlasted the competitive eaters, the basketball players, the buff violinists, and the firefighter twins.

Henry & Evan also surprised me. I think these 2 are still in college are they? and they either edged out their competition  who came from physical backgrounds or on par with the competition.

Yes, they said they won't post who wins, but I have a feeling someone on their "team" might drop heavy hints.  I honestly don't care either way, spoilers for me don't make me watch or not watch a show, but I completely understand that others, especially production, don't want them.

It did seem like an "out of the blue" decision today, and my spidery senses keep wondering about a production leak, who let them know that's it for inside information?

Either way, if they are sighted, we will probably know anyway.

Recent seasons have finish line sightings which the boot list was eventually revealed in full once you're smart enough to spot any difference and pattern so the finish line sightings are the most crucial thing we need to held back as much as we could.


Back to TAR30, didn't Phil did mentioned on the starting line this season would travel 5 continents so I think Leg 10 and/or 11 have to be somewhere at Oceania in order to match the Phil speech.

Nice to see Chiang Mai after 28 seasons considering there is more to Thailand than Bangkok and Phuket. Kinda meh on Hong Kong being visited again so soon even if it was a half leg. If they are aiming for a night leg though, (probably the only night leg of the season) that does sound awesome since night legs usually deliver.

Well, there goes the dream of visiting Australia, New Zealand or Fiji.  :groan: They can reserve that continent for next season if ever that happens which I do really hope we get another season. On the bright side a Thailand visit not limited to Bankok or Phuket is great, happy for Chiang Mai to be visited. Hong Kong again, why? it could have been Taiwan but if it means a night leg, I will have no problem. Night legs on Asian cities are  :conf: Here's to hoping the Pro Skiers & Indy 500 make the Final 3 and don't end up like Tiffany & Krista and Matt & Redmond.

I'm not a big fan of Thailand because it has been visited recently, but I don't think we've had F5(?) in Thailand since TAR14. This should be fine. :)
As for Hong Kong, it may have also been visited recently with 4 teams, but a night leg there would be great! :hearts: I'm also probably biased because I've been to Hong Kong 5 or more times already, so I can say that I'm familiar with certain areas of it. Makes me wish I am in Hong Kong right now.  :(

Pet peeve: Leg 10 F4. :woopdeedo: (can't find emogif, lol)

I get that they're doing this to make the F5 elimination in Bahrain a 50-50, but that makes Leg 10 anticlimactic. This is why I think TAR should be putting NEL's towards the beginning.

Plus my current college flatmate is from Hong Kong and she used to watch TAR, so I'm sure we're gonna watch this season together now lol <3

Thailand had a new area visited this time and its last visit was undermined by Harley & John being so far behind, so I'm happy about Thailand being visited as well.
I like this route A LOT. :conf:

Indeed. Isn't that basically what happened on BB? They became the underdogs you wanted to root for against the perceived favorites/frontrunners?
And overzealous fans always turn people off, whether it's sports or K-pop or reality show contestants. Heck, we've certainly had many TAR teams like that  :-X
lol

...

Anyway, I assume the Speed Bump was at the first part of the Leg? If not first Route Marker? That's refreshing for TAR, having it so early and allowing that team to catch up.
Though I'm sure some people would think that is horrible since they apparently want the Debaters out like, yesterday lol

"Shipper fans" are always annoying on twitter, and BB always has a bunch of them.  I just think of them as tweens and appreciate the spoilers. 

They certainly aren't powerful enough to turn me off a team, but if they were getting production inside info (not all of them, but a couple) I hope it doesn't bite Jody in the ass with production.  ?  Probably not.  They knew Thailand was next before anyone though, knew the Lifeguards were eliminated, on and on.

I don't really know the other teams, I'm sure various ones will surprise me and I'd be rooting for them, except I think we will know who wins (not here.)  I just hope Jody had fun and are enjoyable to watch, they went through hell on BB, so I'm rooting for them to have a much better experience.  If they don't win?  Hell, final 3 is great, they might have won a prize or two, and they could still come in second.

No male/male teams left!  Woo!  That's kind of cool after watching so many seasons of that particular mix winning.

It's a little bittersweet for me. The Skiers survived, so yeah. That makes them another F/F to join the elite group of F/F teams that made the Final 3.  :conf: But sad about the Indy 500. They were physically strong, saw the fitness routine of Alex Rossi and it's hardcore. Your body needs to be super fit in car racing because of the g-forces involved. It's just ugh!! I'd be pissed if I've come this far to be only tripped up by some puzzle solving challenge. :( Out of my Top 5 only 1 made it till the end.

Little bit of a stretch but there might be another reason for Phil to do that. IE one of the other teams was disqualified.

Or possibly because the location of the mat was compromised so early...

MM teams don't always make it to the finale, but MM teams being in the finale happens more often than having FF teams in the finale. With that, I'm glad the skiers made it in!

It's certainly not the most exciting route. At least not really worthy of the hype that this is a huge 30th anniversary race or something. But hopefully the tasks and teams are good. We won't know anything until the show airs of course.   :D

What is historical about this race?  Perhaps it is just a theme and the pit stops themselves are historical to the city/country visited.  Examples: The Tree of Life in Bahrain and the Original Coastline in Hong Kong.

I was hoping Phil's historical remark at the start meant more of an impact to the actual production format - that the 30th show itself would be "historical".  Perhaps the airing will reveal more meaning.

Example: connect previous shows 1 through 29 someway with a big final leg.  Perhaps film 30 days with more cities and countries.  It is the high bar of the CBS shows TAR, Survivor and BB, so raise the bar a little higher. 

TAR is the closest show to Eco Challenge (which was awesome) and hopefully doesn't meet the same ending.

Maybe he justsaid historical because season 30 is a milestone?

Otherwise, I would interpret the route as a historical nod to under-visited countries (for the most part).

At the beginning of the race, seeing 2 of the 3 F/F being the first teams eliminated was so disappointing. I was so scared we would have an all-male final 3  since more than half the teams in the final 9 were M/M and most of them looked quite fit. So glad they all got eliminated!
And this final 3 is the best scenario (for me) after the first two eliminations. We finally have another F/F in the final three, + Vanck & Ashton 2.0 and Jessica & Cody.
As for the route, Nepal  :pity
BUT, there are legs in 10 countries, with only 2 countries hosting two legs. There's a new country, lots of undervisited ones, they finally realized that Thailand =/= Bangkok & Phuket, and a penultimate night leg!
I really hope that the teams will be rootable and entertaining, and that the tasks and leg designs will be great!

Looking at past seasons with numbers ending in -0...

TAR 10 had a M/M team win, with a F3 consisting of M/M, M/F and F/F. A history was made: First all-female to make F3.
TAR 20 had a M/F team win, with a F3 consisting of M/F, M/M and M/F. A history was made: Winner with most leg wins and highest average (8 and 1.83) and first Big Brother team to make F3.
TAR 30 had ? team win, with a F3 consisting of F/F, M/F and M/F (?). A history was made: ?.

I mean I love that San Francisco is visited again. But a night leg severely limits what they can do. Other cities are more active at night. SF? Not so much.

And judging from the tasks already spoiled, it shows. I'd be pretty upset that what could be TARUS' final visit to SF (final Leg evah?) might be poor.

I gotta say, from my perspective on the ground, it looks like it'll be a good finale

Variety of tasks (physical challenge with kayaks, scary element with some type of base jumping in the Bay, riddles for clues, final memory (maybe?) task), cool venues and vistas, it seemed that team placement was shifting around quite a bit throughout the leg, and the craziness with the unpaid taxi drivers at the final destination!

Should be fun to see how things shake out on the show!

The way u put it sounds way better than what I thought. I hope the taxi payment is like a team goes to the finish line and Phil tells them they have to go pay their taxi, then the 2nd team comes and he says the same thing then the third team comes and wins by default LOL

It might not be a shared opinion.. This season has casted big names, popular names, semi-famous names, if I was in casting I would have completely casted full notable people. I would haved dropped the Lifeguards, Twins, Debaters and Ring Girls in lieu of more popular people. Surprised they got Indy, Skiers, NBA Players to do this and so did Team Jody who just finished BB 19. They could have casted Celebrity Chefs, Former Survivor Contestants preferably fan favorites, Talk Show Hosts, Singers, Olympic Athletes, Actors/Actresses, Writers and Astronauts We are in dire need of viewers to save TAR.

Well, there goes the dream of visiting Australia, New Zealand or Fiji.  :groan: They can reserve that continent for next season if ever that happens which I do really hope we get another season. On the bright side a Thailand visit not limited to Bankok or Phuket is great, happy for Chiang Mai to be visited. Hong Kong again, why? it could have been Taiwan but if it means a night leg, I will have no problem.

As the original route that could include Australia, there is no direct flights between Melbourne and San Francisco.

This a lie. Please stop spreading false information.  :groan:

I was thinking the same thing. Production would not spend just one leg in that continent given the costs.

As the original route that could include Australia, there is no direct flights between Melbourne and San Francisco.

They look into a lot of things when setting up the route. Available flights would be high on that list. They need to know that production staff can take an early flight and teams a flight several hours later. I don't think a direct nonstop flight is a must, but if it is, it would have been noticed long ago. In which case, if a nonstop flight was mandatory, Melbourne would never have been on the route. I can't believe they would go to all the trouble of setting up a leg in Melbourne and then a few weeks ahead of time suddenly realize "Hey! No direct flights! Switch to plan B!"

Probably easier earlier in the route, seems like for finales, they like to have a nice and easy direct flight back to the States.

Substitute countries have happened. According to racers, 19 was supposed to have Laos, and Family Edition was supposed to have Belize. 24 allegedly cut out Philippines and, yup, Australia. All of those were caused by an occurring hurricane/typhoon.

I think Claude might be think of TAR 28 where people found a task location in Melbourne ahead of time, saw that it fit the filming schedule and assumed it was us, only to find out it was HaMerotz hosting their penultimate leg. Fwiw Australia (and New Zealand and most islands in Oceania) work a lot better as the first leg(s) especially starting from LAX where they can fly nonstop or with simple connections.

Also I thought about the route and honestly my only complaint is two legs in southern France, especially spaces out the way they were. Replace Arles with Nantes or Toulouse and I'd be all about it  :hoot:

In case anyone is curious about what has been replaced before (at least what I know of)

2: Argentina was cut, replaced with a second New Zealand leg
5: Turkey and Japan were cut, replaced with UAE (Turkey would of been Leg 5, so Egypt and Tanzania were pushed up one leg) and Philippines
8: Belize was cut, I think the half Costa Rica and Arizon leg was what it was replaced with, but I don't remember right now
11: Zanzibar was originally supposed to be half a leg with the other half in the mainland and then a second mainland leg, replaced with a full leg in Zanzibar and Macau (pushing Poland, Malaysia, and Hong Kong one leg)
15: A LOT! At least South Korea, a European country, Ghana, and Brazil were cut, replaced with at least Japan, Netherlands, Sweden, and Estonia.
19: Laos was cut, replaced with a second Thailand leg
24: Philippines and Australia were cut, replaced with two Malaysia legs

Season 15 felt like it never made any alterations. I'm genuinely surprised. To me, I'm impressed how pleasantly put that season was despite all of those changes because that is one of my favorite routes. We wouldn't have had wasabi roulette, Detour dynamite, teams experiencing Lena & Kristy's former nightmare, and the Pit Stop run shove.

Just wondering, has season 30 made any last minute changes to their route too?

How can the producers of this show think that people will turn their TV’s and put on TAR if they keep recruiting teams?? What happened to “casting”? What happened to “auditions”? Normal people can’t even dream about being on their favorite show on television, because they know 70% of people racing are chosen by the producers considering some “standars” (cuteness, posibly rating booster, muscles, looks,etc)

Interesting tidbit from the latest Goat Yoga Video: http://www.azfamily.com/clip/14017922/goat-yoga-creators-compete-on-the-amazing-race

3 Teams applied.

8 Teams recruited.

sigh.....

In recent seasons, that ratio is probably 5:6 at best, anyway. Yet, for all their recruiting teams they think will be good TV, it obviously hasn't moved the ratings needle in the right direction.

Just because you were recruited and never applied doesn't mean you can't be a big fan of the show.

Looking at past seasons with numbers ending in -0...

TAR 10 had a M/M team win, with a F3 consisting of M/M, M/F and F/F. A history was made: First all-female to make F3.
TAR 20 had a M/F team win, with a F3 consisting of M/F, M/M and M/F. A history was made: Winner with most leg wins and highest average (8 and 1.83) and first Big Brother team to make F3.
TAR 30 had ? team win, with a F3 consisting of F/F, M/F and M/F (?). A history was made: ?.

We'll see...

Be wary, this is just a coincidence.
Skiers may become first F/F teams ever win both first leg and final leg

Eric & Daniel survive the 2nd leg by pit manuvering April's cart and they had the audacity to say sorry to April & Sarah. They did it on purpose! why say your Sorry? Ugh. If I was in the position of April & Sarah I would be fuming mad at the twins.

(Pet Peeve: I just hate it when people say they're sorry for something when they actually have done it on purpose, regardless of the position/circumstance. Yes it's a Race and you have to get ahead of your competitors but don't say sorry when your actions have caused a team their elimination. It adds insult to injury.)

Also, it looks like one team will be eliminated per week even on double episodes, except for the one later/tomorrow, but that takes place in the same country, so all is cool. 8)

I like the concept of the Head to Head but it is really not where it is supposed to be on the Leg. That being the sole determinant of the elimination is frustrating to watch. Better if it would be in the middle of the Leg in future Seasons.

Could not agree more. Not only is it hard to watch, but it's so cheap! The show is way more intense without the unnecessary transitions!!

Also the camerawork is really odd sometimes. Don't get me wrong, the cameramen of TAR work extremely hard! But rewatch Lucas & Brittany running to the Pit Stop in 1st. It's just so .. shaky?

Definitely agree about it feeling cheap. There are better, more smooth transitions in even free video editing software, tbh.

During the sailing Road Block, they kept using that split screen transition. Like repeatedly within seconds. Having just rewatched the TAR10 Madagascar ep last week, I was struck by how excellent and clever the editing was. Especially during the FF/bed Detour back and forth. No transitions used at all. Just quick and creative cuts to each scene. So much better than what we've seen recently on TAR.

It really does look and feel less professional, which is sad considering how editing had always been one of TAR's strongest points.

The editing did used to be so clever. I still don't understand how nowadays they can't fit all team placements. Ihate how we have to rely on insider clips for crucial info.. or to even grow closer to a team. The televised episode should be achieving that...

For example, I actually love Henry & Evan on the insider clips - they had a lighthearted moment of getting into someone's car by accident - would have helped to show that funny moment in the episode.

And Kristi & Jen seem more cutthroat/competitive behind the scenes. They're just racebots on TV imo.

I was rewatching TAR 17 Leg 4 and even Katie & Rachel and Connor & Jonathan's race to the finish was more intense lol.

This is still applicable for the past double ep :lol: Head-to-heads at the pitstop are unfair as hell. Great leg though, but ugh.  :faint:

This is the first season where I don't like Phil as a host.
Even when his live commentary (with the currently-in-first team passing by) was introduced, I wasn't as annoyed as I am with his Face-Off commentary and general hosting this season.

Agreed 1000%. Phil is most unique when he's laidback and QUIET. not some awkward sports announcer..

Phil's popping up at random times starting with TAR25 was okay. But his Head-to-Head  commentary feels so forced. And his Mat Chats this season have been kinda awkward. Also feels a little too contrived as well.

Kinda want to say that the express pass riddance, is one of the best decision ever by crews. Recent usage was just to avoid U-turn and created an unnecessary drama. Also, it created the actual pure competitive teams that would just running and running without the advantage, and thats what it was great to watch, altho we have to wait until F5 left to do so

The absence of the EP this season was quite bittersweet to me, but more sweet than bitter. Bitter because the Express Pass is one of my favorite things in TAR. Sweet because the lack of it doesn't convince any team to U-turn the team with the EP. For the past few seasons, teams with the EP have been U-turned, because they're seen as a threat with such an advantage. (Becca & Floyd are an exception because of how they received it and how nobody knows about it.)

Gonna talk about final task here... While i really hyped for the final task, and claimed that it was one of the best final task of all time in TAR history, there was a flaw about this task (beside peach's point "properly assemble plane' thing)

You have recognized all stickers that representing 12 legs, and one of them is a magnifying glass (Prague). And the magnifying glass was representing A roadblock in Prague when the supervisor checked their answers with it.

The problem is, not all of the final task doers did the RB, and the one was Henry. I could have sworn that thing Henry changed the piece that cost his chance of be a winner was that magnifying glass, since he  didnt the RB back then, so it would have confused him even more than other racers.

Also Jen on r/TheAmazingRace admitted that magnifying glass was really made them confused since not it wasnt part for the RB at all (i mean yeah it was used as decotation for checking their rb answer tho), but also came from another task in Belgium (Diamond task) which was a detour(altho it was solved by reading the detour task)

My point is they could have gone with all stickers that not only representing each legs, but also be visible with other member teams, especially non participating RB member teams. I mean, Henry and Evan could have discussed it before Henry started to assemble the plane's part, but idk if it was allowed, but crews should have prevented from a final task doer being an disadvantaged, since it was a literally final task, and it would be unfair.

That, however, is my only complaint on final task, and i still happy that they made that final task. Confindently, the best final task ive watched since 12 and 21.

What a great find! yes I totally agree with you, no wonder everyone spent more than an hour for that task..
Yes, this is really unfair to the racer who did not do that specific roadblock, there is no way Henry would have known what a magnifying glass mean. Wonder if the result would be different if Evan did that task.

I think in Season 12 when they had this logic game, the items involved were all known to both racers, so this time there is really some flaws in the task planning. They could have used beer to switch for that which is an easy choice.

Yes, agree with that, at least it's a detour and when you read the clue you know at least what it could involve.
Same as the very first memory challenge in Season 3, when Zach did not do the Singapore mermaid detour but he could guess it may involve that animal on the totem.

But for the case of Henry, I think it is not likely he could guess it may be related to Prague, and it seems more difficult as there must be more than 12 pictures. For Bahrain they have the balance and the bird, so that means you also need to eliminate repeated pictures in one leg.

I think it's a bit of an issue when the teams literally could not figure out what the drawing is supposed to depict. That kinda defeats the point of it being a memory task right?

They should have just made it the symbol a phone, which could have easily lead to confusion between using it for the teleboutique in Tangier or the Prague RB. As far as I can tell, the only thing representing Tangier anyway was the fish.

I don't think it would have made a difference if Evan did the task. And if it did make a difference it wouldn't have been because of the magnifying glass. None of us recognized that image as from Prague (even the ones who did the roadblock). We all made the association to the diamond detour, despite not doing it. We knew you needed to view a diamond through a magnifying glass, but since none of us did the task, we had no idea what it actually looked like. Every other image (besides the bird from Bahrain) was something we physically interacted with in some way, shape or form, so the magnifying glass was a terrible choice. There were two other images for Prague as well. One of an animated beer in a bathtub and another of a map of Europe with a red dot on Prague. The issue for me was not about the images though. I address that on my blog this week.

Also, the piece that Henry changed at the end was the vertical stabilizer. He had the magnifying glass on his plane (it was on his propeller). The images he swapped out were Elephant (Thailand)/French Fry (Belgium) for Bats (Hong Kong)/BeerBath (Prague). But if he thought the magnifying glass was representing Belgium and he didn't think he had anything for Prague, it would have made sense. Then he ended up with two images from Prague & Hong Kong and none for Belgium & Thailand.

Regardless, I do agree that the magnifying glass was a very poor choice of images.

It was disheartening to say the least. But the other teams had the same plane pieces, they just didn't think about the orientation of the wings.
