Why?
This coming from someone who has never seen any TAR Canada, but has been planning to.

Yes, Mostly around the country. But every season since season 2, they've one a Leg or two outside of Vietnam (South Korea, Singapore, Australia and first ever TAR visit to Laos)

It was directed at NELs/gamerfan.

Regardless of how one views TAR Canada, I think it's impossible to call it the worst when TAR Vietnam exists.

While TAR Vietnam does have some good aspects here and there, the objective problems it suffers from far outweigh them. Non-existent budget, celebrity stunt casting, forced drama, bad editing, bad sound design, bad course design, technical problems, unfair challenges, boring-to-watch challenges, AWFUL/repetitive incidental music, and controversies about the third season being rigged.

They try their best (really, they do), but it's not a good time at all.

Personally, I find that too much hate has been thrown towards TAR Canada. While the past couple of seasons have not reached the highs of the early seasons, every season have been enjoyable to watch, with the exception of season 3. So, it is far from the worst franchise for me even if I don't agree with all of their recent decisions.

I thought that the two most recent seasons of TAR Vietnam were fine, but the first three were really bad. I'm also with you G.B. on that awful music they keep playing whenever a team completes a task.

For me, the worst franchise is TAR Brazil. The challenges ranged from boring to easy to cheap. Whenever a hard challenge did come up, teams would just quit with every team deciding to quit the famous meat Roadblock. There also were way too many go from point A to point B tasks. The worst thing a show can do is make me bored, and this is one of the few series that never intrigued me while watching it.

There's an argument to be made that relatively speaking, a TAR Vietnam or Philippines will have a considerably lower budget and will have to make do with far less resources. The franchise and rights fee alone is huge. So for the resources they have, both series have done alright.

Now TAR Canada can't really make that excuse, especially when it's been the #1 show in the country.

What? Don't you like twinkly piano music?  :d025:

I always find it hilarious that everybody says Season 3 was the worst of TAR Canada. I love season 3. It's my favourite by far, and much much better than the lackluster Season 4 that followed. (Hey, look what thread we're in, lol)

I think (not 100% sure) there was a time limit on the TAR Brazil meat-eating task. They had to eat all of the meat before a certain time passed, or they would just receive the penalty.
