It's the same patterns as how the US casts a ton from California despite there being 49 other states, mostly in and around Los Angeles, where they're based. I see Ken & Ryan as a 3rd BC team due to them both living there now.

Shanghai and Bangkok should've totally been two separate Legs.

Andrea and Ebonie lasting at least seven legs out of eleven, or over half the race!  :conf:  :bunny  :D

If they're indeed the 6th placers, then every position from 11th upwards will have been represented by at least one F/F across five seasons ~

Well, now knowing where leg 9 is, I'd post how I'm feeling about the remaining portion of the route at the moment. But profanity-laced rants to production are probably against forum rules, so I'll spare it ;)

Well you can always just give us your bleep-free opinions and let us use our imagination where the bleeping should go.  :escape

Bummed that S3 was the last one with a mid-race special, but at least that anomaly during S4 was just a one-time thing!

Glad that they didn't merely rehash the Tanzanian beekeeping task ~

Another F4 Face-Off?  :groan:

Whoever loses that is sure to be eliminated, for some reason TARCAN loves putting those near the end of the leg and I just don't get it. It should be the first task of the leg to allow the losing team an opportunity to catch up.

It's a combination with crokinole, a Canadian board game with a wooden board and a circular path for pegs. My late grandmother used to play it. Yeah, would have worked better if they could set up a giant crokinole board :p

Squamish might have just set the record for "nearest to the previous season's" premiere leg location.

At least the first two seasons were split between the mainland and the island.

If they want to have races mostly in Canada, then they should go to places they haven't been before. Nunavut, Manitoba, PEI have only been visited once so they should get revisited. I don't get why so many international versions (China Rush, Philippines, Vietnam, Brazil, Latinoamerica 4/6) stay mostly in one country rather than exploring the world.

I dont mind seeing TAR Ph visit PH only, because every place looks distinct (the only terrain we dont have is snow).

I struggle identifying TAR Canada locations lol but as long as thwy are entertaining I dont mind them staying in the country (with occasional visits abroad)

Heck, I'm just happy we get TAR alive and kickin <3

In TARCAN's defence, Iqaluit/Charlottetown are essentially the only places in NU/PE respectively, and Churchill by Hudson Bay is as difficult to access as Mt. Logan in the Yukon.

Very happy to see them NOT flying on the first Leg. Hopefully that means some extra cash for an international Leg. (Not holding my breath though lol)

I actually wouldn't be surprised if they stay in Canada for all legs this season, due to them celebrating CANADIAN HEROES!

IMO, this should of happened last season...

I really hope we go international for half the race. I mean they are really running out of steam for the Canadian legs (see: season 5) and all the tasks are so subpar. I'm fine with all Canada too, all I ask is for interesting tasks.
And I hope they actually have culturally relevant and interesting international legs. I still don't understand why they flew them all the way from Beijing to Shanghai just for Tock's deli? And don't even get me started on how bland the Panama leg was. TARAus 2's Beijing leg was umpteen times better than TARCan 5's Beijing leg.

Cast looks pretty decent. Based on trends, every alternating season has strong FF teams, so I hope that the 3 FFs this season leave an impact.

Pardon? That was as legendary as the S19 penultimate episode and superior to the overrated Strangers' Edition premiere, easily the best Latin American leg in TARCAN history.

I too thought the Panama Leg was great. Maybe even the best of the season, tbh. Tons better than the Cuba Legs which are a great example of TAR Canada wasting an international destination with generic tasks.

The show can stay in Canada all they want, as long as they can design fresh, interesting Legs. Even repeat cities, as long as we see new and different stuff. But the show's even been recycling whole tasks in different cities. So it's either Canada is running out of interesting places or the show is running out of ideas.

He's the polar opposite of Chenbot, yet both are my fave North American hosts.
