TAR 28 Bitch, Moan & Squeal Thread **SPOILERS**
« on: November 11, 2015, 01:18:34 AM »
Due to the "special" nature of this cast, I am thinking we may have more Bitching, Moaning, and of course, Squealing than usual.
 
BUT!!
 
** Just a reminder that RFF prides itself on our friendships and relationships with current and past racers and their families, who DO read what is being said here.
 
While it is perfectly fine to explain why you think a racer or a team was chosen, how you think they will do, comment on how they race, or why they just aren't your favorite, it is NOT okay to be rude or impolite in doing so.

i don't mind if there is one youtuber or vine star or other "social media star", but whole cast full of them is just eww...  i'm not a fan of this. is CBS so desperate because of the rating? They try to increase the rating by using these "celebrities" but ignore the fans who have been watching TAR since season 1

 :gaah:  :gnome  (:;)

Personally I refuse to aknowledge this gimmick... at least considering how my intial response to all of this "celebrities" was an out loud "who?" because I don't know anybody on this list.

I'm glad the race has casted 3 parent/child teams, couples in different stages of their relationship and also a team of frisbee players  ???

Here's hoping for a great route, throwbacks to early seasons, difficult challenges, cryptic clues, self driving, a harder to navigate ruote and a mix of personalities that would make me route FOR them.

I really really really really really really don't like this idea. I wouldn't have minded if it was 1 or 2 teams but all 11. :gaah:

That said I am glad that they got diversity in relationships.

I would do a crosspost with what I said on Twitter, but I'm not taking my chances on getting that removed. Although I will say this:

This is possibly an uglier concept than the all-dating season.

It's this site that does 6.5 second videos (I don't get it either)

Showed my 15 year old sister that Tyler Okelly is on the race. She reacted excitedly. I think I know the demo they are after.

Tyler Oakley better slay this race
My friends are all excited, hopefully I can get them to watch TAR now :lol:

Not a huge fan of the social media concept, but after they tried something different in TAR26 and went back to the "original format" with TAR27, I'm eager to see a new, semi-gimmicky season, as TAR26 was AMAZING, and TAR27 isn't thus far.

It can be worse actually, but the teams seem really diverse. I mean we have brothers, and parent/child, and newlyweds. If we don't look at their status as social media stars, it's just like regular season.

I'm still open to this concept. The teams make or break the race.

For example, he who shan't be name in season 27.

And then there's the route.

We should be open to this. Hopefully they get to tweet and vine along the way too. If everyone can do that then no one has an unfair advantage?

A lot of casual fans might feel a tad alienated by this season - I get the feeling they're vying for a new, younger audience. I'm probably in the minority, but I think this casting gimmick - while risky - could really pay off if they can get enough new viewers. Tyler Oakley has 7 million subscribers, and Roosterteeth, the company started by Burnie, has eight! That could translate to a lot more people watching this season! The real question is whether or not they stick around.

Ignoring their social media backgrounds, the teams look good and I'm excited to see them race.

My bitch: What the HELL is a Vine? :funny:
I downloaded Vine as soon as it was finally available for my Android phone 2 years ago.  Then the week after, Instagram launched their video capabilities so I dropped Vine.  I honestly never understood how one could gain so many fans and followers on Vine.  YouTube, sure.  But Vine or Instagram?   :wtf:

So first the good thing, I have no idea who any of these people are.  (Though I've heard/seen "Tyler Oakley" around the internets before.)  So I guess I haven't been as glued to the internet as I thought.  *phew!*
And since I don't know who they are, these people aren't celebrities to me and are just regular people.  :grins:

Now the bad...
TAR will absolutely treat them like "celebrities" in terms of editing and all that.  UGH!  One of those teams is enough for a season.  Now we have 11.

Contemporary TAR has shown with TAR26 and arguably TAR24 that they don't handle gimmick casting seasons well.  They focus too much on the gimmick instead of just casting them and letting them race like a normal cast. 

I get that TAR thinks this will somehow bring in millions of new viewers or drive social media discussion, but there's still no proof of that in their various attempts over the years.  Plus, how sad is it that TAR is the show that resorts to this kind of casting?  The gold standard, Emmy winning TAR.  Big Brother recruits people all the time, but never needs to do something as drastic as this to stay afloat.   But thus is the state of The Amazing Race today. 

And the Jumbas (awesome!) and Joey & Meghan (only okay in TAR24 lol) showed that while they can bring plenty of fun to the show, they can also help raise the "casual fan-isms" 10x so that will be cringeworthy on its own.

Oh...
Why is the Bitch, Moan and Sqeal thread still closed? Please open!!! :funny:

And I intentionally misspelled "Sqeal" because so far, there's definitely nothing for me to "squeal" about. lol

Ugh, this is obviously desperate way to boost the rating. But let's see, I've a really strong pessimistic opinion about Blind Dating in 26 but it ended up having one of the greatest cast ever. So, let's see if this is gonna be that way or not.
