I'm not really sure what's happening - Daniel/Ryan and Elizabeth/Todd were not shown doing the Roadblock and the teams behind them are doing it?? ???

John & Murray have arrived!

Team number one!

They have won 2 Virgin Australia Business Class flights to Los Angeles, plus an Express Pass!... And a second EP!

1st - John & Murray
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. ♥

Aston grabs three haybales at once and drops two LOL.

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...

Commercials.

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

1st - John & Murray
2nd - Carla & Hereni
3rd - Emily & Jono
4th - Daniel & Ryan
5th - Elizabeth & Todd

Sally & Tyson are at the Roadblock with Tyson opting to perform it.

Inga & Tiharna retrieve their ring and are returning. "They've got 10 minutes on us."

Ashleigh & Jarrod arrive 6th, Aston & Christie 7th, they swapped places somewhere. Cat & Jesse are 8th.

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:

Sally & Tyson leave. Tiharna catches it! Game on!

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

Grant: "I can't check you in I'm sorry, there is a breach in the rules."

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)

Agree but I felt we got to know a little bit more about the teams. They could have defiantly condensed it to 1.5 hrs for a "happy medium"

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.
It's Clobbering Time!

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 ;)

Forgot one thing: cowboys music strikes again! If you havent noticed it was during the tractor challenge, for the Raspberries (?) guy. This time (for me) more fitting, though.
