Great to hear (and I should really catch up with TARA5, because I ended up dropping off after not being able to find the episodes).

Disagree strongly on TARCh, but that's for another thread.

In a profile of activeTV and TAR executive producer Michael McKay, it reveals that activeTV's rights to The Amazing Race format ended last year. That explains why AXN produced TARA5 with Profiles TV instead and maybe why it took so long for TARA to come back to air.
Quote
In 2006, activeTV Asia was established in Singapore off the back of the company’s first production of The Amazing Race Asia for AXN.

The company is now headquartered in Singapore with a strong production base in Manila, as well as the foundation business in Melbourne.

McKay says, “When we first came into Singapore in 2006 no one had really done reality TV so we quickly trained up a lot of people and a great many have progressed in the industry today because of that training.

“We did the same thing up in Manila. We also take on interns, we try to train and develop people and if I was proudest of anything it would be that.”

He added that despite having such a big show as The Amazing Race Asia on its books, in Singapore the company still had to prove itself.

“That took a while, but, here we are 11 years later and I think people understand our commitment,” he says, “In that time we’ve produced lots of varying content across different genres, languages and platforms.”

The Amazing Race series has been the company’s springboard to success, but last year activeTV’s partnership with the format owners finished, which meant giving up the franchise.

“I spent a large portion of my life working on the Race. I started with season 2 of the American version and I really do love the format, always will,” McKay says. “But it enabled us to regain full ownership of the Asian business and focus on our own formats and development. It was time to move on.”

I wouldn't be surprised if that *also* contributed to a) the abbreviated route and season and b) the lack of any tasks copied from other editions.

For the abbreviated route and season, most likely it's the budget and probably AXN just proceeding cautiously in bringing back a show after 6 years.

But the absence of activeTV ABSOLUTELY is a reason there was a lack of recycled tasks. lol

Hopefully the success of TARA5 will open up the route and maybe add a Leg or 2 for season 6.
