Let's get the show on the road ladies! :dancer:
1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

I think they might go for an MKR style intro and do it during the episode.

The Australians are all relying on Tyson.

NZ says that the Aus teams look fitter. "Just sit and drain them out"

Cat: I didn't know the Hulk was coming on TAR

The winners get a head start - the others get a time penalty!

NZ seems to be winning the tug of war! Ashleigh's not very impressed by Tyson.

Jesse: It was like a well-oiled All Black scrum.

The Kiwis have won!

Emily & Jono are second and booked in.

Elizabeth & Todd are the first Australian team in the queue.

The NZ girl teams are talking about how amazing it would be if the five Aus teams were the first to go. Keep dreaming.

1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

Ashleigh & Jarrod are lost early.

Inga & Tiharnaare trying to get info while Aston & Christie push in and tell the locals that they are Australian and not to help her... they got the last map and left.

Inga: They're like leeches.

Carla & Hereni are following the boys even during rafting. They have to find a ring(?) not too sure I didn't hear the instructions.

Carla & Hereni stop at some random place because it looked like it had been stepped on. John & Murray have gone past.

We go to the commercial break... is the clue there?? :duno:

We are back.

They are looking for "half of a ring".

Carla & Hereni found nothing on their random stop.

John & Murray found a half ring in the sand and they are off. They get their clue.

Drive yourselves to Rata Peak Station! I think they are meant to take those half rings with them.

Aston & Christie have caught up withDaniel & Ryan and the other teams in the 8:15 group.

Those four teams have arrived at rafting.

John & Murray get to the next location and a Roadblock! Who's got better traction?

They must use a tractor to navigagte through a slalom course and stack haybales in a marked area.
1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.

After that they must search the flock of sheep for the one wearing the second half of the ring that matches their own and join them to reveal the Pit Stop.

Murray is getting two haybales at once. Carla has only one on her tractor.

Back at the rafintg, the middle pack plus Aston & Christie are suiting up.

The lagging group arrives, with Sally & Tyson nowhere in sight in last place... their directions have taken them to the Ticket Office rather than the rafting location. They are lost and in last.

This is by far the weakest premiere episode in TARAus. Rafting and driving tractors, and then the Pit Stop. Compare this to balut + Jig/Pig + build a raft in TARAUS2... -_- :stare

I agree. It especially sucks because I just found the TARAus2 premier on YouTube yesterday, so its fresh in my mind, and then I read about rafting and tractors.  :gaah:

We're back with Sally & Tyson getting new directions. Tyson says that they're a good half hour away because they didn't read the clue correctly and went somewhere wrong.

Emily & Jono arrive at RB third.

Murray is stacking the haybales with 2 done. Carla has her first one done. Emily is doing the RB for her team.

Daniel & Ryan, Elizabeth & Todd - looking for the ring on the rafts. They find them in 4th & 5th respectively.

Inga & Tiharna are on the rafts and trying to catch ASton & Christie. Ashleigh & Jarrod are doing much the same.

Aston & Christie are now in 9th place by the looks of things.

Cat & Jesse are now in the sights of Ashleigh & Jarrod and zoom right past.

Ashleigh: You almost feel bad passing teams who you think are genuinely lovely.

Carla - 2 bales out of 4
Emily - 1 bale out of 4 but the forks of the tractor are dragging through the ground... the farmer isn't impressed

Emily has her 2nd bale, Carla has her 3rd, Murray stacks number 4.

Now Murray has to grab the half ring - I think by the looks of things all the half rings fit into each other?

Carla stacks number 4 and they are done!

Carla is in the sheep pen also while Murray crash tackles a lamb.

Scratch that - each half ring is unique, making this pretty interesting!

Ash & Jarrod grab the half ring in 6th place.

Cat & Jesse are there in 7th.

The guide helps Inga & Tiharna into the boat and they are off and claim the ring in 9th place.

Sally & Tyson finally arrive at the rafting.

OMG Inga & Tiharna left their ring in the raft and left!!! :( :o :'(

Emily finishes the tractor and can move to the sheep.

Murray is still trying to tackle sheep. He has a match!

Carla starts sheep wrestling. One flew off a sheep neck and fits! She did that fast!

Emily & Jono arrive there. "Catch those boys!"

Emily is trying, while Ashleigh & Jarrod, Cat & Jesse, Aston & Christie all arrive.

The mums say they are only 3 or 4 minutes behind the boys while they search for the Pit Stop.

Emily catches a sheep and fits the ring. They are out of there in third.

Todd finishes four bales and is still going... :lol:

Daniel gets his fourth and they are out of there.

Sally & Tyson are still rafting - they go through the rapids and get their ring in last place.

Inga & Tiharna get to the Roadblock and realise that they do not have the other half of the ring!

They turn back to go retrieve it...

We are back with Inga & Tiharna going back to the rafts. They believe they are going home now and hope Sally & Tyson make the same mistake.

Sally & Tyson have the clue (and ring) and are heading on.

Aston has 3 bales, Jesse has 3, Jarrod has 1.

Aston places her 4th and is out of there in 5th. Jesse is done in 6th.

Christie has injured her leg somehow and they are walking towards the sheep. "I've torn something, Aston". Aston is CARRYING her for "four metres".

Daniel is catching sheep. Todd arrives too. Elizabeth: "Why didn't you bring your brother or friends? Don't you have any friends?"

Daniel and Todd are both out of there.

Inga/Tiharna are still heading back. Inga is throwing up now on the side of the route en route to the rafts.

Jesse is up to catch the sheep.

Jesse: "I'm colourblind." Apparently they need a ring of the same colour as their own. :lol:

The girls see Sally/Tyson going the other way. Sally thinks they're going back to do another (future) challenge).

Jesse, Aston and Jarrod are now all attempting to catch sheep. ASton is trying to offer grass to sheep, send telepathic messages... :crazy:

ASston has her ring.

Daniel & Ryan check in 4th. mother/son are 5th

Disappointed this season is only 10 legs but it's understandable with likely budget cuts. This is a pretty bad premiere - the awkward walk to the tug o war? and doing team intros while they're racing? Not a fan of the format. But it got better once they landed in Christchurch. Am loving almost all the teams! Hoping for an exciting finish  :conf: but if not, the next episode better be a big improvement!

Tyson and Tiharna start the Roadblock at almost the same time!

It is very close but Tyson is taking two bales and Tiharna is taking only one...

Tyson is smashing this - he is done and Sally is excited!

Tyson moves on t catching sheep. Sally is doing her best to avoid the mud! :lol:

Tyson grabs his ring off a sheep that seemed afraid of him! :lol:

Tiharna is now done with her haybales and can go on to the sheep. Tyson is carrying Sally across the mud to avoid getting her dirty. :lol:

Tyson tells the girls to try to corner the sheep. Sally: "I don't know if I would have given that clue out."

Tyson has left his shoes behind! He goes to retrieve it while Tiharna is in a staring contest with a sheep! :lol:

Next time teams face their worst nightmare (eating in Cambodia). Aussies battle Aussies, while simple mistakes cost one team the race.

I believe the location I saw Grant at in that next Pit Stop is the same as the TAR13 Cambodia Pit Stop - the Bayon Temple.

Don't think the episode deserved a two hour slot -- with such little tasks it really could have been condensed into a 1hr show. Took way too long to get into the actual racing, but once it did it was alright.

Not sold on the editing at the beginning but further throughout the episode it got better, looking forward to next week!

The EP must be given away by the end of Leg 3 and use it by the end of Leg 5... :crazy:
Maybe that's because there might be more EPs up for grabs in later legs, grant did say that they are playing for prizes like never before. We are defiantly getting more gameplay oriented prizes for latter legs.

Disappointed this season is only 10 legs but it's understandable with likely budget cuts.
At least we are going 10 countries with 10 legs and not 8 countries with 12 legs (cough TAR24)

Their elimination stings because of a very minor mistake that cost them a lot of time. Those kinds of elimination get to me. Also, their little showdown with the Kiwi girls reminded of one in the first season of TARI between the beauty queens and the Kibbutz girls, both fights having similar results in terms of elimination.  :funny:

I don't know if I like the editing and there is too little of tasks. However, a lot of navigation, that's great.
2 hours premier so the editing is slow and they gave us a lot information about each team.

I enjoyed it. The first 40 minutes were sort of eh but once they hit Christchurch I enjoyed it from there. Good to see that they actually did a tribute to the Christchurch Earthquake which was something I was extremely disappointed about when the US Version went to Christchurch last year. I've actually been white water-rafting at the Rangitata Gorge. I love the Kiwi teams and pretty much all the Aussie teams except Ashleigh and Jarrod at this point. They could win me over but I have no idea if they will.

The start was really, really, REALLY bland, it got better and was actually good in the middle, but I have to say I was a bit disappointed. It wasn't bad, but compared to the AMAZING Leg 1s from Season 1 and 2, it just fell flat.

Leg 2 is DEFINITELY going to be better though, and I have high hopes for the rest of the season, because it's TARAUS <3

This!

I like the episode mostly because of the teams. TAR Au always has very distinctive teams! Also: pitstop taken right from my dreams (Love LOTR and Land of Rohan ;P

Isn't anyone excited about the preview of the season at the beginning? I thought there be some caps by now... Haven't followed the spoilers here for this one but when I checked there wasn't many...

ALSO: Colourblind people on the race!?! Race markers are useless LOL ;)

It was a very unorthodox yet very fun start for the show. When the song played at the start, I immediately questioned myself if I downloaded the right episode :lol:

The first half of the premiere was exciting, but it got boring and zzzz at the latter half.

As usual, the teams delivered entertainment gold. Though I am having the hardest time trying to remember their names :lol:

I tried my best to avoid remember what I saw during the "teasers" part. I don't want to get spoiled. :lol:

I'm glad that I get to know a little about Inga & Thiarna even just for one two-hour premiere episode. They were edited pretty well so we can know them well.

The way they edited Sally & Tyson right from beginning just pretty much telling me that there would be something happened to them. And it came true when they're told to go to a wrong place however still save.

The kiwis were DAMN entertaining. The fiesty sisters who never SHUTS UP, the foster parents who were just so lovey dovey and hilarious. The boys who're so smart and strong, the fitness moms who're kickass and the fun-loving/good looking siblings.

On the other hand, it's just mistakes after mistakes for team brawny, and the pageant girls, sad that it isn't brawny who's gone but these girls were just whiny and careless. They deserved to go home anyway and wouldn't last..

And the boring daniel and ryan (nurses) were entertaining for the first half and then their story as nurses.. just died. literally. Smelling boredom from them.

The only Australian team who delivered? ELIZABETH AND TODD. SO MUCH BADASS AND RANDOMNESS <333333333333333333

++ Someone just axe the Newlyweds off my screen. <////////////////3 hoping they're eliminated next.

I wasn't all that hyped about this Season like I was with Canada 2, so I've only got round to watching Leg 1 now, but man, how WRONG I was.  I LOVED it!

The beginning of the Episode felt strange and different, and not in a good way, so I was pretty worried, especially without the team intros at the start, but from the Tug of War on, the whole episode just got better and better.
TARAus really know how to do this show justice.  They've taken the best of TAR US and just used it in every Leg so far.  :lol:

With only 10 teams, I'm glad there's only 10 Legs, simply because I don't want a repeat of TAR24, and 4 NEL would just be overkill.   :groan:

As for the cast, from the pre-race interviews there were only a few teams I was interested in, and really wasn't looking forward too seeing Sally & Tyson.  I was expecting the predictable muscle team, with no personality, arrogant and just proper asses to everyone else.  :groan:

BUT they are so lovable, and are genuinely nice, friendly people.  Even when they knew they were way behind, they were just happy, and had fun anyway.  And how Tyson reacted when Sally told him she seen the Departure Time but didn't mention it, was pure class.  It truly proves that exteriors shouldn't be judged.  I'm so happy they survived.  :wohoo:  (I'm just hoping they won't change as the Season goes on)  :(

I didn't mind the girls being eliminated because they showed nasty streaks at points, but it really was their own fault, leaving the ring behind.

Team Analysis after Leg 1:

LOVE - John & Murray, Cat & Jesse.
Like - Sally & Tyson, Aston & Christie, Elizabeth & Todd, Carla & Hereni.
No Opinion (Yet) - Daniel & Ryan, Emily & Jono.
Dislike - Ashleigh & Jarrod, Inga & Tiharna.
