I hate those inside shut away from the city, the sights, the buzz legs, like the game show ones. UGH. No wonder we didn't see them

But LOVED this TAR 29 leg!! TAR classic

PC bangs are definitely hugely popular and having them visit one on a night Leg in Seoul definitely makes absolute sense. Having a technology-type task in Seoul is also a no-brainer.

It's just, after all this time and very possibly the last time TARUS visits Korea, maybe it would've been better to have 2 contrasting Legs. There's certainly a huge variety of things to do in Korea even more than other oft-repeated countries TAR's visited even just since TAR17. But oh well.

Seems like kind of an ironic timetime right now for an episode there to air, with you-know-who to the north ramping things up as of late.

still surprised of how this season turns out to be glorious, mostly because of the teams but also because the production not being lazy despite the budget limitation to create difficult and inspiring task. but yeah mostly because of the casts

I agree with you dryedmangeoz.

Do we really need video games on TAR? I think that would be more better suited to Japan...

Anyway, I hope we get another quote like Brooke's from TAR17

If they went to Japan again, I would rather have them focus on anime instead of video games.  For example, one team member must dress up as a Japanese school student and run a course with a slice of toast in their mouths.

I am extremely excited to see the Street Fighter challenge in South Korea! It feels unique hehe. I don't know about you, but it is a very (recent) cultural task :lol:

And this season really surprises me! Starting from the Arahova/Athens leg, everything is very reminiscent of the old TAR that I used to love!

Oh man, looks like I want to visit Ninh Binh next year! :tup:

I have really no idea on guessing who win this season because LoLo aside every remaining team seems have chance to win this. Tara & Joey and Matt & Redmond would be normal standard TAR winner, but we can't ignore Brooke & Scott as well because we have history of Flo & Zach and especially last season Dana & Matt as a TAR winner.

The only negative for me that I could see for the South Korean leg is the stacking cups Roadblock. Why can't they focus more on the cultural side, something relevant, maybe sing some K-Pop :funny: But the Street Fighter challenge is fresh, I expected that to come out of a Japanese leg, but I'm a happy camper, it's a tick off my wishlist.

There seems to be some kind of K-pop-ish task in Gangnam, based on the commercial. So there's at least that.

Gangnam...hopefully any song but that  :funny:

Though it is funny to picture teams doing that cowboy thing the dance involves

As long as they're not yet eliminated, London & Logan still have a chance to win. Some teams lay low for the whole race then give it their all on the final leg to win. :tup:

I don't think they mean they're out of it because of their performance; you're right in that some teams have had great final legs after a whole race of mediocrity (Freddy & Kendra, Josh & Brent, Amy & Maya, etc.). Given how TAR finales are typically set up (vaguely physical and/or flashy RB, vaguely cultural ARI, memory task, Pit Stop) L&L have a great shot, especially if Logan does the physical task and gets enough of a lead like last season's finale.

The issue is they have no story, be it them overcoming something or growing as people or becoming a stronger couple or anything. There's a weak suggestion of one in them talking about how they're a great, low drama pairing but like...Matt & Redmond and Tara & Joey do that better. Scott & Brooke have a different winner's path largely due to circumstance, but it's similar to how Flo & Zach or Matt & Dana were presented. Even other invisible winners (TK & Rachel, Kisha & Jen) had something to them throughout the season.

Agreed. I'd be more surprised with a LoLo win that a ScoBrook win.

Actually. I will one of the fans who isn't suprised if Lolo win TAR 29...

Recent TAR showed underedited teams that somehow won TAR (Kelsey and Joey on S27 and Dana and  Matt S28) ... They recently tries to keep TAR become unpredictable by showing more edit for Teams that might not win TAR... and Lolo is the team who get under edited team which only one (or two maybe) focused on them....

But it's just a (really) pure (and stupid) speculation so i'd like to wait and see how thing's going in the season finale....

The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

2 consecutive legs without a Detour. Can't see the finale having one, either, they haven't done that since the old days of TAR.

Budget is showing a little there :P

If that's the case, I think it might become a new record for TAR. ???

We had so many food-related tasks this season! :lol:

First, the shopping roadblock in Zanzibar. Then, Liz & Mike's speedbump in Greece, followed by kimchi ARI in South Korea. Now the finale also has hot dogs. :lol:

And there were also quite a few tasks related to climbing (Becca's forte).
