A pretty good Leg.  I like the modified bubble bull task from TAR24.  The soccer was more interesting than TAR Canada's Road Block lol And the tomatoes were great.
But the REAL bull side of the Detour! WOW! That was insane! You'll never see that on TARUS, that's for sure lol

Was the starting task officially a Double Battle/Versus?

The bull task was copied and slightly modified from HaMerotz LaMillion 3. In both cases, they used an adolescent bull. However, in this version the bull also had its horns cut down to stubs so they couldn't do damage, while I don't think this was done in the Israel race.

I like how in the blind soccer task, they actually forbid them to do "The Hop", as invented by Nick & Matt.

The girls had to flip the same hourglass that the chopstick bros. had to flip, so I would definitely say it was a Face Off.

Can someone do me a favour and go back to check episode 2? I really can't believe that the rules of this race would allow Xiao Yang to do ALL FIVE of the Roadblocks so far. Can someone make sure that he actually elected to do the one in Cairns?

ALSO, if anyone feels like a geography challenge, try to find the lilac field? I saw where their little Google Earth map went, but I think the editor made a mistake. The little icon flies over to Cabrières-d'Avignon, but when it zooms in it seems to be in a completely different place because I can't find that specific area anywhere around Cabrières-d'Avignon.

Does anyone know the Roadblock prompt? I don't think any of the teams read it.

Either they miscalculated the time for their Hong Kong meet-up or the implications of Leg 6's Task at the beginning.

I think the clues should be forcing Wang Taili to do all the Roadblocks on Leg 7 onwards.

That was terrible. I hated everything about that.

This season was going so well, but this is just awful. These intruder teams are completely ridiculous. The Yuans can win the race now and get the same grand prize, and they would only have to run half of the race. HOW is that fair in any way? I absolutely cannot stand it when shows do this. What makes them so goddamn special to get this kind of treatment?

And on top of that, the leg was lacking both a Detour and Roadblock, meaning that there was almost no CHOICES to be made. TAR is all about making choices, but teams didn't choose the Detour, they didn't choose the Roadblock performer, and they didn't even have to choose which way to go; the whole leg was within a small nature reserve.

AND to top it all off, we have the greatest race sin of all time. NO LUCK TASKS RIGHT BEFORE THE PIT STOP. How difficult is it to grasp that? I am absolutely not impressed by this.

---

Is the notion of "Come in first or second, or be eliminated" still true for this intruder team, or did something change?

What is the name of the "Sponsor Water"?

*Cartoon slap* You should be checking our wiki instead. Most of the international versions on Wikipedia were written by me, and I've stopped making them because of the idiots over there. There is a much more full description of the leg over on our wiki.  :conf:

I think 16 seasons of BBUK have made me not care about intruders winning, and I mean they ain't winning now so. I frankly have more of an issue with the tasks in the last two legs than the leg structure itself (<3 ostrich racing <3 aside).
I'm baaaaaack!

No, I mean, how in the world can a Leg of just Intersected Double Battles work? That sounded like a mess.  And it looked like one too after I watched it lol

Well, it's over. Yay? Great visuals, mostly great tasks, STUPID design...  Would this not have been like five times better if Team Orange and Team Running Man had started from leg 1 like everyone else?

I think this is the Roadblock prompt? Confirm? If so, please write it out?


Also, folks I'm still looking for someone to tell me what the prizes at the end of each leg are (including the final leg). I have no idea, and the Chinese Wikipedia only has the first two legs.

Thanks, I appreciate it.

Finally saw that the finale was uploaded to YouTube.

But like last year, Ouch! It's kinda awkward how not all the eliminated teams are at the Finish Line.  Only 2 teams made it this year?  :(
