I think there has only been one other time when 2 teams were eliminated in the same leg:

Season 19 Leg 2. Ron and Bill and Ethan and Jenna

Oh yeah! I forgo about that one! Bilal and Sa'eed were elimanted at the Forbidden City in Beijing and Vipul and Arti were eliminated at the end of the leg.

I still haven't watched the episode yet, but after reading the comments here, i agree with most of you. I hate double elimination, especially at the starting line. They prepare everything to be on the show and the producer eliminated them just because 1 simple task?? That's really cruel  (:;) (:;) (:;)
And i don't understand why deputy minister of Indonesia was there  :groan: :groan: :groan:

I hope to never see another start line elimination in TAR as long as I live.

If TARA5 wanted a 2EL, they should've copied TAR10's or TAR19's style. (Although it would be better to have a regular elimination or NEL any day.) Why did TARA5 have to select that twist of all the available ones!? :groan:

I'm definitely annoyed with Episode 1's outcome, but I'll still watch, as I am not one of those casuals.

Personally, I would preferred the Elimination Point to be further down the leg. Also, I would of like to have NEL on this one.

I think it has something to do with sponsors.
Btw, he was a lame addition to the already-horrible outcome. :res:

I totally agree with you Nyoman. The deputy minister of Indonesia was there, because 5 legs are in Indoensia, because Indoesnia is the show's main sponsor.

DID YOU KNOW:

That this season is the first season to have a Vietnamese team?
This is the only season not to feature a team from Hong Kong?

For me, I would of like it after the Detour, where the last team to complete the Detour is elimanted, or something along the lines of that.

I understand that Indonesia is the main sponsor, but "Good luck, travel safe, GO...!!!" is iconic moment said by the host. I can't imagine if this happened in TAR US and somebody else did this, not Phil  :meh

I guess you are right. I guess TAR Asia wants to be different from TAR US.

I wonder what would happen if Phil didn't say those iconic words...

The episode was kinda meh. It's great to see Tar Asia debut again but it's not perfect. The thing that bothered me most though was the start line. WHY ON EARTH DID'NT ALLEN WU START THE RACE! I quite like the 2 host thing, but 3's a crowd.

Wow the editing on this was bad. Just after the start elim all the teams were searching for taxis and all I could think was where are they're going?? WTH!

Still feel like I don't know any of the teams - it was all tasks, tasks, tasks. I still can't tell the difference between the two sets of beauty queens lol.
I see you watching me watching you :)

For what it's worth I didn't see ActiveTV at all in the credits and it's now Sony handling it.

Hopefully the editing improves, yes. It felt very odd that the episode loved to hold back on showing the "CURRENTLY IN XTH PLACE" or even the Team Names allthroughout.

And Tara Basro's delivery is just not powerful enough. It felt absolutely jarring when she was detailing the Detour and Active Route Info instructions.

In addition, I'm not sure how helpful this is, but Sony Channel Asia also shows TARA5 so just check your schedules. It's airing replays at random times (Episode 1 is in 10 minutes) and Episode Two will join its rotation for the entirety of the season.

That wasn't a strong episode. It was just really awkward cramming a Start Line Elim and whole leg in 40 minutes (it should have been an extended premaire).

I hope later episodes pick up in quality.

Seems like TARA has sold out to their sponsors just like TARLA, expect to see a drop in task design creativity and producers to stop caring about traditions. I kind of expect seeing things like three legs in a row without a Roadblock, a twist like the Double Battle or even a U-Turn before a Detour.
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
