Minnesota would be a good place for the final leg as the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area is considering very likely and safe that TAR will visit the West North Central region of the USA. It would be the 25th US state to visit TAR, enough of New York, Nevada and California final leg visits.
Not sure if Fiji would visit by new teams, since we already have French Polynesia since TAR22. My guess is that Australia is a high possibility so it should be looking like this:

Pre-Leg: Los Angeles, California, USA
Leg 1: USA  》 San Jose, Costa Rica , Pitstop: Parque Nacíonal Manuel Antonio
Leg 2: Costa Rica  》Hobart, Tasmania, Australia , Pitstop: Port Arthur
Leg 3: Tasmania, Australia  》 Melbourne, Victoria, Australia , Pitstop: Royal Exhibition Building
Leg 4: Australia  》 Penang, George Town, Malaysia , Pitstop: Kek Lok Si Temple
Leg 5: Malaysia  》 Luang Prabang, Laos , Pitstop: Mount Phousi view
Leg 6: Luang Prabang  》 Vientiane, Laos , Pitstop: Patuxai
Leg 7: Laos  》 Kigali, Rwanda , Pitstop: somewhere in the streets overlooking Kigali Tower
Leg 8: Rwanda  》 Lalibela, Ethiopia ,  Pitstop: Rock-Hewn Churches
Leg 9: Ethiopia   》 Ljubljana, Slovenia , Pitstop: Prešeren Square
Leg 10: Slovenia  》Faro, Algarve, Portugal , Pitstop: at a nearby beach
Leg 11: Portugal  》 Dublin, Ireland (with Blarney & Kilkenny) , Pitstop: Kilkenny Castle
Leg 12: Ireland  》 Cleveland, Ohio, USA ,
Pitstop: Cleveland Museum of Art

I too want to see a season comprised of first-eliminated teams, or even one that also includes second-eliminated teams.

I’d find it great if they brought back Bilal and Sa’eed or Eric and Lisa and they ended up winning the whole thing  :funny:
Those two, had they gotten past their sudden eliminations, could probably be damn strong teams in the running. Eric & Lisa looked ferocious and seemed prepared to take down their competition at any cost. And Bilal & Sa'eed were in the lead starting off in Seattle. Had they gotten a better taxi driver in Beijing, it would have been bye-bye Cho Bros. I honestly loved the energy they had and was sad they were out at the midpoint.
I would also like to see a "second chance" season with very early eliminated teams.
Melbourne will not have a night leg. Certain areas of the city (St Kilda, Northern suburbs, Western suburbs) are being runned by Youth African gangs who are actually quite violent.

Bourkie, Melbourne is ranked #1 in the most habitable city in the world according to the Economist Intelligence Unit for seven years straight in a row. I would love a visit to Melbourne. The Race has surprised in the past. I would not find it shocking that the next visit to Australia will include Melbourne, day or night. Just wanted to say this and now onto my route for TAR 31

Starting Line: Hollywood Sign
Leg 1: (Los Angeles, California---> Nadi, Fiji) Pit Stop: a beach area
Leg 2: (Nadi, Fiji---> Launceston, Tasmania) Pit Stop: Cataract Gorge
Leg 3: (Launceston, Tasmania---> Melbourne, Victoria) Pit Stop: Shrine of Remembrance
Leg 4: (Melbourne, Victoria---> Vientiane, Laos) Pit Stop: Patuxai
Leg 5: (Vientiane, Laos---> Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan) Pit Stop: Burana Tower
Leg 6: (Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan---> Doha Qatar) Pit Stop: Pearl and Oyster Fountain
Leg 7: (Doha, Qatar---> Johannesburg, South Africa) Pit Stop: Cradle of Humankind
Leg 8: (Johannesburg, South Africa---> Montevideo, Uruguay) Pit Stop: The Hand in the Sand
Leg 9: (Montevideo, Uruguay---> Cuzco, Peru) Pit Stop: Machu Picchu
Leg 10: (Cuzco, Peru---> Belize City, Belize) Pit Stop: Xunantunich
Leg 11: (Belize City, Belize---> Winnipeg, Manitoba) Pit Stop: Assiniboine Park
Leg 12: (Winnipeg, Manitoba---> Minneapolis/St Paul, Minnesota) Finish Line: Spoonbridge and Cherry

So that is 5 new countries: (Fiji, Laos, Kyrgyzstan, Qatar, and Belize)
1 country that's been visited once: (Uruguay)
2 countries that have been visited twice: (Peru, Canada)
1 country that has been visited three times: (South Africa)
1 country that has been visited four times: (Australia)
Then lastly Minnesota will become the 25th state to be visited in the race.

Did they really just spoil which tribe is sitting at Tribal???
I totally agree with a visit to Laos. They can do a leg in Luang Prabang and then do a visit to Vang Vieng, kind of similar to TAR 29's Hanoi then Ninh Binh. Vientiane, according to several people I met while backpacking around Asia, is pretty boring compared to the rest of Laos and I think those two places, or maybe even Phonsavan would be really cool. Keeping to Southeast Asia, I'd really like to see a visit to Myanmar (I just did one in my fantasy game  :lol:) and go to Bagan, which would make another incredible Southeast Asian leg.

We also haven't had a visit to Russia since 21, which is kind of understandable given the current relations between us and them. In my opinion, the Russian legs always seem to have at least one difficult task :

5 - Caviar task (would LOVE this as a Switchback, even as just a fast forward)
9 - Russian nesting doll task
13 - the entire penultimate leg
14 - wood stacking
17 - music/film detour
21 - synchronized swimming, time zones

I would like a visit to St Petersburg! It's been a bit, and then we can do the Caviar task again. If not, I'd really just like to skip Moscow altogether and go somewhere new. Maybe a visit to Vladivostok? A winter leg in Sochi would be cool, they can do Olympic tasks.

What do you guys think?
Los Angeles, USA
Nadi, Fiji
Suva, Fiji
Melbourne, Australia
Tasmania, Australia
Chengdu, China
Cluj-Napoca, Romania
Vienna, Austria
Durban, South Africa
Cape Town, South Africa
Charlotte, North Carolina

Yo, I started working on a fanfic based on this. You've only mentioned 11 places, Bourkie, there's no way I'm considering a full leg in Los Angeles, and assuming Charlotte is the final leg, we still have 11 legs. I decided to add Budapest, Hungary as the final leg.

Leg 1: USA --> Fiji
Leg 2: Fiji
Leg 3: Fiji --> Australia [KOR]
Leg 4: Australia [U-TURN X2]
Leg 5: Australia --> Taiwan
Leg 6: Taiwan --> China
Leg 7: China --> South Africa [BLIND U-TURN X1] [NEL]
Leg 8: South Africa [BLIND U-TURN X1]
Leg 9: South Africa --> Romania
Leg 10: Romania --> Hungary
Leg 11: Hungary --> Austria
Leg 12: Austria --> USA

I've finished 6 legs but it's still rough because I'm hopped up on Caffeine, but let me know if this is how you imagined it!
