TAR5:
Leg 1 (Punta del Este): A
Leg 2 (Buenos Aires/San Antonio de Areco): A (See season 27? You can make a good grade if you try. :lol:)
Leg 3 (Bariloche): A-
Leg 4 (St. Petersburg): A-
Leg 5 (Giza): A-
Leg 6 (Luxor): A+
Leg 7 (Kenya & Tanzania): B (Only because my favorite team of all-time was eliminated)
Leg 8 (Dubai): A-
Leg 9 (Kolkata): A
Leg 10 (Rotorua): A
Leg 11 (My Ox Is Broken): A+
Leg 12 (El Nido): A+
Leg 13 (Alberta & Dallas): A-

Valedictorian of TAR certainly. Same can not be said to the antithesis...

TAR24:
Leg 1 (Guangzhou): D-
Leg 2 (Guangzhou): F
Leg 3 (Kota Kinabalu): C+
Leg 4 (Kuala Lumpur): C
Leg 5 (Colombo): C
Leg 6 (Tuk-tuk mania): B-
Leg 7 (Rome): D-
Leg 8 (Orvieto): F
Leg 9 (Swiss Alps): F
Leg 10 (Seville): C-
Leg 11 (England & Wales): C
Leg 12 (Vegas): F- (This should have been very easy to make difficult too.)

Perhaps this season may have a brighter future elsewhere. This is me being lenient too.

How do you think about Tiffany & Krista? I gave them B.
I only care about female team to win or final 3!

Still mediocre. They're only shining because all the rest of the teams suck. :funny:

IMO, I think this season totally blows if you compare it to TAR25, which you technically have done. Just saying :P

Plus, the editing sucks majorly, which definitely soured everyone else with the oversaturation of Texas and Justin.

I personally think one of the reasons 27 is so underwhelming is because we, the fans, were overhyped. In the secret scenes and some others, the other teams really shine, but on the show all they get is either an invisible edit or a boring edit =/

I know we definitely overhyped this season, so not only is it not good, it's even worse than we expected. *sighs*

I don't think TAR 27 is too horrid compared to post UB era tbh... But yes don't compare to TAR 25 because that season had full packages to be the best season ever... Cast, location, leg design, task and editing, TAR 25>>> TAR 27

TAr 27 i think still a good season (excluding the rest of the legs), amazing cast, amazing route and location, but WRP need to execute better for rest of the leg because it tend to be boring so...
While i supported Team Texas and
Show content
Justin/Diana (lol i've to hide :funny: )
it's kinda shame to only focused on them like it was kinda unfair lol whille we have the best shot and moment on secret scenes, not the real show lol...

Sorry for out of topic discuss, i just wanna share a though :)

I'm only comparing TAR 27 to TAR 25 because I was told this could become the best season ever.

Far from it. :funny:

If this is the trend, in your opinion, for this season. I hope it continues. An "A+" for the finale is very challenging for WRP now.

+1. Season 25 had everything, the editing was absolutely great, I can't fault it. The secret scenes also had those gold moments that are an added bonus to the awesome edits shown to us viewers. The tasks are definitely part of the culture of that specific country and you could tell they really thought of it. The cast was awesome, all of them. It also seemed that the producers listened to a request by some fans. (A visit to Philippines after 20 seasons + infamous "My Ox Is Broken" Switchback. I read somewhere that the US Virgin Islands leg was supposed to be a Belize leg and Bertram mentioned something about a planned visit to Qatar in that season. I just wished that Dennis & Isabelle (Very lovable dating couple that got eliminated all because of punting) and Lisa & Michelle made it further (I got Brooke & Claire vibes from them) and that Kym & Alli made the Final 3 rather than Misti & Jim. Overall Season 25 was a great season.

Comparing it with Season 27, they had every element to make it a great season however they failed to execute it. Some of the tasks are meh. The gold moments are in the secret scenes and almost everyone on the planet can't even see them. Certain teams were eliminated and I felt that I never saw them that much. I do appreciate the effort of toning down Tanner & Josh's  rivalry and showing their fun parts lately (sightseeing in Paris and having fun in The Netherlands) and that we get to see other teams in the editing. I'm still hoping that the next legs deliver.

Sorry for O.T. Collectively grading Season 27's Leg 1- Leg 7. I'll give it a C.

I guess I am in the minority here. TAR27 is actually quite decent (minus the episodes where they focused too much on the Texas ad Green team rivalry). I will give the current season at least a B.

TAR25, one of my recent faves. :conf:
Leg 1: US Virgin Islands B+ The season started out well. :)
Leg 2: UK B- It was okay, but there were editing flaws.
Leg 3: UK B Quite similar to the previous leg, but less editing flaws.
Leg 4: Sweden + Denmark A Gotta love the plot twist on the Dentists. :funny:
Leg 5: Morocco B+ The drama with Shelley & Nici is still fresh in my head.
Leg 6: Morocco B- Linear and dull, but satisfactory it was.
Leg 7: Italy B+ It was a decent leg in my opinion. :)
Leg 8: Malta B+ Another decent leg. :)
Leg 9: Singapore B It was good, especially the part with the FF.
Leg 10: Philippines B- I was craving for a Philippine visit, but this one was underwhelming.
Leg 11: Philippines B+ Thanks to the F4 twist that time. :) I'm still regretting about not being able to go to Divisoria (roadblock location). I could've discovered the F4 twist. :tantrum
Leg 12: Los Angeles, USA A- I loved how the episode turned out. :)

I'm not sure about the accuracy since it was a year ago, but it's my recent favorite, so I think it is. :)
