Your favourite TAR moment
« on: December 21, 2014, 02:39:13 AM »
So we all have a moment from TAR that we just love! Whether it be a leg win, a victory overall or a great task. What is yours?

My most recent moment has to be Amy & Maya winning Season 25. A great underdog team that could believably win

Here are a few at the top of my head: :cmas22

* Season 5: Charla & Mirna sneaking off to an earlier flight while the other teams slept around them (Egypt I).
* Season 11: Oswald & Danny and Dustin & Kandice's Yield deal in Macau.
* Season 19: Cindy collapsing under her bed and laughing (Malawi I).
* Season 14: The cab rides to the finish line for all 3 teams in the finale (Hawaii).
* Season 10: Lyn & Karlyn walking out of the hedge maze first while the rest of the teams were still inside running around (Spain).
* Season 2: Oswald & Danny's shopping montage while in Hong Kong (Australia I).

I really want to make video compilations about these and more, but I'm not editting savvy enough :cmas4

Uchenna & Joyce winning TAR7 is still my top favorite moment.

My favourite ever moment has to be the final twelve minutes of Season 1. No bigger amazement, excitement and suspense as to who was winning, even though we knew who, the two teams who thought they were at the front had no idea. Phil Keoghan and the eliminated teams waiting for the winners at Flushing Meadows Park. Then the perfect dramatic music followed by the 'Now We Are Free' theme. No moment in the history of the show will ever be able to top this for me. Seeing Rob & Brennan win the first ever Amazing Race...

Agree

Also queen Brooke and king Scott bitching each other in Vietnam 1 was the best moment, if it wasn't the loudest :lol:

Hate me now, but my best moment for me was when Dave and Connor won Season 24. After going cancer and Dave's snapped Achilles, it was deserved!

By far the race to the Pit Stop at the Stone Cross in Croatia in TAR 12 Episode 6 (when Nicolas and Donald raced against Azaria and Hendekea) - the music was so suspenseful and the stunning views of the city / cross made it an incredible moment!

So being sick or injured makes you more deserving of a reality show victory?

Yes, because whining endlessly after a U-Turn and then claiming the "editing" screwed you over and also indirectly cheating at Roadblock distribution grants you a "deserved victory" :res:

Dave only did five Roadblocks when Connor did eight Roadblocks, which some were could be easily completed by Dave (such as balloon shaving), so it can be equal like 6-7 or 7-6. But the rule was mainly applied for Luke, who is deaf, in case that he can't do the Leg 11 Roadblock if the count was unequal.

TAR3, Ken & Gerard's adventure on the Punt detour. Gerard having terrible balance and falling off, to the amusement of the people watching him. Then Gerard hip-checking Ken into the canal. I laughed even more when I read that the production got mad at Gerard for ruining equipment on Ken.

Also, shout out to Oswald & Danny's entire Hong Kong-Sydney leg, when they took it easy and then finished first despite leaving Hong Kong last, and going on a shopping spree.

Charla & Mirna's scenes, Dustin & Kandice's moments, Brooke & Claire's hyperness, Colin & Christie's "My Ox is Broken", Meredith & Gretchen in general, were just some of the moments I liked in the older seasons that I could remember.

Don't know if I'd call it my favorite but I loved the part in TAR 23 in the first Indonesia leg where Jamal yells, "LEO!! DESTROY IT!!" and then Nicole tries to cheat and they edit the scene with intercuts to their interview where they say "We're trying trying to set an example for our kids. We're gonna run the race in an honest way." Again, don't know if I'd call it my favorite Amazing Race moment, but it's up there.

Also in TAR 18 when Kynt and Vysxin and Jaime and Cara were at the U-Turn board and the cheerleaders beg Kynt and Vyxsin to U-Turn the globes but they U-Turn the cheerleaders right in front of their face.

Then of course (I'm gonna get hate for this) all the laughs that BJ and Tyler created. Jumping out of the bushes in Brazil, creating a sign up sheet in Sicily, and the bus scene on the way to Athens Airport where they pretend the ghosts of teams eliminated are on the bus.

Here are a few at the top of my head: :cmas22

* Season 11: Oswald & Danny and Dustin & Kandice's Yield deal in Macau.

I really want to make video compilations about these and more, but I'm not editting savvy enough :cmas4

An awesome moment in the above episode ... Oswald saying (about the cab driver) - "God grant me the patience to withstand the things I cannot change and the intelligence to hide the body of this man once I am done killing him"

And the next scene is when the driver drives them to the police station and makes a report for a murder threat.  :funny:

TAKE 2!

Some moments I regularly rewatch:


Season 18: Kent & Vyxsin in Legs 4 & 5 (China 1 & 2) - them getting lost, trying to catch up, the lost passport, the lost fanny pack, lying about the penalty, the U-Turn strategy, surviving
Season 21: The final memory task - Hello Goodbye, and Josh & Brent winning with Abbie & Ryan being very excited for them :D
Season 23: Leg 3 - Nicky & Kim's flight moves, and Chester & Ephraim's disaster dominoes
Season 25: The entirety of Leg 9 (Singapore) - Fast Forward drama, U-Turn drama, falling off of a tightrope, Kym & Alli's hope spot, surprise elimination, everything - probably my favorite leg ever.
Season 26: The Monaco leg, just for seeing teams race in very formal wear
Season 28: Tyler & Korey vs Scott & Blair in the Georgia (from the Ballet Roadblock to the run to the Pit stop)
Season 28: Sheri & Cole's miracle rally in Shenzen, China
I'm gonna fight 'em all

TAR31 Colin and Christie winning

TAR14 Roadblock in Beijing where they had to repeat orders in Chinese. That was the genuinely funniest task in TAR history.

Christie telling Colin to take a breath was by far one of my favorite moments ever.

Which reminds of the cabbie in Detroit after C and C spent 10 mins looking for him.

TAR31 Colin: Tells Christie that they should not freak out the cab driver
