So, The Amazing Race 29 has been offical by CBS, however that does remind us an important question: Whats going on for Season 30? Everyone wants to know if its all stars or all newbies or maybe even fans vs favs like Survivor and the route, aka the idea of the show.
So, I will begin. The Amazing Race has been on a decrease, however if TAR29 & 30 were incredible, the show is right back on track. I think an All-Star season would occur for either 30 or 32, if the latter occurs. But in order to know what will happen for another allstars, we should review on the recent all-stars.
THE AMAZING 24- ALL STARS II
The season was a flop. Easy tasks, not culturally or diversity like it should be, bad cast, simple route. Lets attack the season one by one, beginning with cast.
Jet & Cord (S16- 2nd Place/ S18- 6th Place): Their the most memorable team ever. Southern charm, high likability, physical prowess. However, they did somewhat poorly in Unfinished Business and it showed that they are not that good at the metagame. They turned it around in S24 but then again, the season was so easy that it mightve matched their strategic abilities. I am not a fan of 3 time racers, however I was fine wirh them competing in the season.
Margie & Luke (S14- 3rd Place/ S18- 8th Place): I loved them in 14. In 18, they fall really flat, which is why they returned. I kinda wished they didnt because of 3 reasons. 1) It was their third time. 2) I knew pre-race that they werent gonna finish their chapter; they got eliminated in Sri Lanka and had no shot at winning after the airport bad luck they occurred. 3) Seeing the same teams race is boring.
Flight Time &Big Easy (S15- 4th Place/ S18- 2nd Place): Information leeches, way too loud and annoying, plus they pissed a lot of the fanbase off in S18. The only memorable stuff in 24 with them was that they struggled fitting into cabs.
Brenchel (S20- 3rd Place): They sucked in S20 but I knew they were memorable from both their big brother experience and rheir constant mood swings. I am glad that they raced better this season so I dont have much of a complaint except that it was stunt casting, again.
Bopper & Mark (S20- 5th Place)/ Mallory (S17- 6th Place/ S18- 3rd Place): I rrslly wished that Bopper couldve competed and I loved them so much in s20. When I found out about the combo of Mark &Mallory, i had two different feelings. I knew they wouldnt do well (which happened) but I wanted them to win, mainly for Bopper.
Natalie & Nadiya (S21- 4rth Place): They were excellent racers and I shocked & pissed that they were out first. I was so glad they got redemption in survivor.
Jessica &John (S22- 9th Place): They do deserve to race again after their villainous portrayls and snafu wih the express pass, but they belong in a second chance season.
Dave &Connor (S22- 8th Place): Im happy they got a second chance but they deserve a second chance season. All stars is best of the best; not most memorable from 2 or 3 seasons ago. They also dominated but it was an easy route and they took things very personal.
Joey & Meghan (S22- 5th Place): Only complaint is that they werent great at the race; only placed higher than fourth one time.
Caroline & Jenn (S22- 4rth Place): No explanation needed, but i did wish they won
Leo & Jamal (S23- 4rth Place): Constant eating of the scenery, always lying, and fun personalities made them great for the season. Sole difference between them in S23 and 24 is that they struggled less in 24.
Gary (Same as Mallory): I feel like Gary & Mallory made more sense rhan Mark &Mallory, and if one racer is sick than the whole team cant race.
Amani & Marcus (S19- 3rd Place): WTH?
Andy & Tommy (S19- 4rth Place): Very strategic, comedic, likeable, and strong but also controversial; perfect for the season, but they got cut at the last minute.
Trey & Lexi (S21- 3rd Place): They deserve to return and are very popular
Pam & Winnie (S22- 7th Place): If there had to be a low placing team return, it should be them. They were good racers, great sarcasm too, but one struggle at the detour cost them.
Tim & Marie (S23- 2nd Place): Villains and funny, i wanted them to race but Marie didnt want to do it again
Rachel &Dave and Bill & Cathi werent alternates but do deserve a shoutout since they do desrve to race again. Art & JJ, Nicky & Kim, and Jaymes & James in my opinion are good considerations.
China- I expected it to be visited once again. But 2 legs in the same city is very boring.
Malaysia- Cool that they went there bc I did not expect it.
Sri Lanka- Its very cool when they visit countties after a long time or never before.
Italy- I love Italy but i didnt want to see just Rome and one village city. Venice would be cool plus they could a venchi chocolate taste task similar to the Indian tea taste in s18.
Switzerland- Beautiful but very recent
Spain- They messed up the trip to Spain. Nothing with the culture was in the leg.
England- Great country but it was being used over and over in that time era.
Philippines- Originally in the route but got cut bc of a typhoon, which made them visit it next season.
Australia- Melbourne was supposed to be visited but it got cut for unknown reasons.
If TAR30 is All-Stars, I think they will make it not be like S24. I think much better casting would occur.
