People are tired of returnees, I also think it wouldn't be a good idea to make an All Stars season right now.

The best option is to make a normal season, without any special theme, just a normal season like the firsts ones. No celebrities or mid-celebrities, no youtubers, no basketball players.. just-normal-people!

Agreed!!!

The people listed in a previous post for an All-Star season... I have no desire to see any of them on my screen again and would definitely not watch.  Several of them were OK the 1 time I saw them but that was enough.  And, some I didn't like the first time so no way I want to see them again.

I have a question for RealthyFan11:

How do u know that India will be visited, if TAR30 comes?
I dont know if India will be visited. I said "I know" because a lot of people dont want it to be visited and and I thought someone would be like "Really?" So i wrote "I know" meaning that I know we dont want to go there but it might

As somone who cares about TAR history, there's nothing more I would like than old-school teams returning and getting the respect they deserve. However, I don't see this happening for multiple reasons.

1. Many teams have been moved on and aren't part of the TAR community. The (Real) All-Stars aka S11 aired over 10 years ago.
2. CBS and producers have very limited interest in anything before S14 (aside from minor Switchbacks). Both have said they're not interesting in reaching back that far.
3. Honoring the show's history has never been a priority (just look at pretending S24 was the first "All-Stars").

I really think a true All-Star season could revive the series, it would be a good way to go for season 30. I know CBS loves to say no older teams but I really think classic teams like Charla & Mirna and Dustin & Kandace could draw some viewers in (yes, I know they've raced twice already but if some of the teams we've had can race three teams, these two teams more than deserve that opportunity).

Colin & Christie would be amazing to see race again, or what about Flo & Zach or Tara & Wil? Even though some of these teams may not have been previously interested, they may be now after all of these years.

Amazing Race was at its height of popularity when we had  the classic moment of Lena & Kristy never finding their clue in the hay bales, that's something even casual fans will remember, they deserve to race again and really should have been on Unfinished Business. And although some people aren't fans, even another Rob & Amber run would surely catch some eyes.

These are just a few examples of course, but we have some amazing classic teams that if CBS would actually do another real All-Star season, I believe we could get a lot of viewers to tune in.

Its hard to say the race is not included in the renewal list for 2017-18 TV season.

Why would it be? We have been off the air for a year! They are going to want to see how we do and how the ratings are..so everyone do your part!

Here's what Deadline says about TAR:
Quote
As for The Amazing Race, for the first time since the Emmy heavyweight’s 2001 debut, it will have only one installment this season, which will premiere March 30, replacing Training Day on Thursday. The veteran aired in the Friday 8 PM slot recently but the network found success this season with MacGyver in the hour, which has invigorated the entire night. With all three CBS Friday dramas — MacGyver, Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods — renewed for next season, it is unclear what berths CBS may consider for The Amazing Race beyond bridging the two seasons of Survivor. Yet, it is a legacy series for the network, so another season should be under consideration, if nothing else to bid a proper farewell to the most heralded reality series in Emmy history.

I think that's what most have said here. Even if TAR29 has less than stellar ratings, CBS may pick up TAR30 to give the show a proper farewell, at the very least.

And here's Phil stating the obvious to TVGuide:
Quote
The Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan also remains optimistic about the reality show getting picked up for a 30th season -- well, as long as people tune into Season 29, which kicks off next Thursday at 10/9c.

"This is an opportunity for us to go on a new night -- a big night for CBS," Keoghan told TVGuide.com. "People keep asking me, 'Is there going to be 30?' And I say, 'If the audience turns up and they watch the show ... then we'll be back.' It's as simple as that."

Hmm... Here's my theory about the contestants

1) From Season 24, Jet and Cord will be the only ones returning for a fourth go, cause Luke and Margie got a second consecutive low finish, and the Globetrotters were too middle-of-the-park. Leo and Jamal will return for a third pop, and so will Brendon and Rachel.
2) From Season 25, it's gotta be Adam and Bethany (who has a biopic! just found out...), and either Brooke and Robbie or Kim and Alli.
3) Haven't watched S26, so I'm going with an old comment and saying Hayley and Blair.
4) From S27, Justin and Diana HAVE TO RETURN. Their dream run was ruined by a whole lotta cab trouble. Tanner and Josh will also return, but Denise and James Earl might too
5) From S28, Brodie and Kurt will return (they remind me of Leo and Jamal). Tyler and Korey will also return, unless they have other stuff to attend to, in which case we will see Sheri and Cole, or maybe even Scott and Blair (#Blodie!) again...
6) From S29, Redmond and Matt are likely to return, cause Redmond has been on CBS before, and Matt has won pro sport events. If Logan and London don't win, they too will return, considering Logan's excitement (Check his IG feed), and London's popularity.

An all-winners season would sound nice, too! Rooting for Matt and Dana on that one!

:welcome: to RFF CesarAzp1!

I think there may be at LEAST (if not more)  a good chance of a NORMAL season with an all new cast! Having had  so many "gimmick" seasons in a row, I think there is a much interest in going back to TAR Classic. Much will depend on ratings and sponsors...but right now nothing is determined.

And I would love an All Winners...but not until our last season ever!

I agree with you Peach. This would be awesome! However, I believe that this would be impossible because they would have to pay for at least 58 racers plus crew. However, it would be great to see!

An All-Winners season = season with past winners, not season with everyone who's ever won.

If TAR sadly did get cancelled, as a consolation I'd like to see ZBC sue some random guy on the street for TAR being cancelled

Absolutely! Honestly I think that's what made Season 27 so great!

What's the status on Season 30?

Keoghan: That's a good question. I think that depends a lot on how many people turn up to watch 29. I think it's an incredibly competitive television market. I think the reason we didn't get on [earlier this season] was they were trying new things, new shows. A lot of fans have said, "Why Thursday? Why 10 o'clock? Why can't it be this? Why can't it be that?" I've just said the same thing to all of them: "Let's focus on what we do have and what we can do and not what we don't have and what we can't do." This is an opportunity for us to go on a new night -- a big night for CBS ... and let's focus on what's right about this. People keep asking me, "Is there going be 30?" And I say, "If an audience turns up and they watch the show" -- and I do believe we'll get a big plus-3 [in DVR playback] because a lot of families are not going to be watching at 10 o'clock on Thursday, but hopefully we'll get new viewers too who may have missed us before -- "then we'll be back." It's as simple as that.

No casting is ongoing now. As stated multiple places, 30 is NOT yet confirmed.

I didn't expect it would come to this so soon. :(

But all hope is not lost! I'm glad to be watching TAR again really soon. :bunny :hoot:

hi, i'm new to the forum  :didimiss:
but yeah, if TAR 30 were to go through an oceania route, this is what i'd wish :
Leg 1 : New Zealand , and they could probably visit wellington.
Leg 2 : New Zealand (again), and this time they could delve into Maori cultures and customs.
Leg 3 : LAOS !!
Leg 4 : India (it is over visited I know) India is a very chaotic country and is also brimming with culture and traditions.
Leg 5 : Kazakhstan , visit long overdue from season 13. They could probably visit Almaty.
Leg 6 : Kyrgyzstan , this would be a 1st time visit and also teams could travel by bus from Almaty to Bishkek.
Leg 7 : Israel , they could visit Tel Aviv, the place is beautiful and a few beach themed activities could take place.
Leg 8 : Israel (again) , they could delve into Jewish culture and also if possible visit Rosh Hanikra (for its beautiful grottoes)
Leg 9 : Morocco , I know they had just visited it in season 25 but teams can really partake in a myriad of tasks here.
Leg 10 : Portugal , teams could travel over the strait of gibraltar and drive to portugal. There is quite a lot to do in portugal, but it eould especially be nice if the leg laid emphasis on the portuguese carnival.
Leg 11 : IBIZA ! it's a balearic island that (I think) TAR has never visited before and there's loads of fun activities to do there.
Leg 12 : Some quaint city along the eastern coast, not really sure.
This is just my plan out, thoughts ?
