Of the 7 visits to The Netherlands 5 of which were all to the capital city, Amsterdam. Technically it was 6 visits, the one in S.19 was unaired. I don't mind visiting the The Netherlands as it is a beautiful country but Amsterdam again? I hope it is just a connection...

On one hand: Amsterdam, Netherlands again?
On the other hand: The Netherlands with at least 10 teams? Cool!
Lowkey lurking until TAR returns.
I'm back!!!
Slowly fading now that TAR30 filming is over.

I am also a long time BB live feeder (and new here). If you met me IRL you would never believe I was the type, but I love this show. I love seeing the opinion of "the casuals" (TV only folks) vs the crazy livefeeder. We see a very different show many times. IMO, when BB started this past season, Jess & Cody were two of my least favorites. I would say that was pretty much the general consensus.  But as the days/weeks wore on my opinion changed. Virtually none of the HG were playing to win the money. Only Paul the former & present 2nd place finisher & Jess & Cody.  Cody has views that I don't agree with, Jess is an interesting person with a very interesting backround.

As weeks woree on we got to see how awful the others HG were at BB. Why sign up to win 500K and a potential 3+ months away from your family to help someone else win. Other than Jess & Cody nearly all HG were in it to win it for Paul.  Made no sense. Then there were the taunts to try & trigger Cody's PTSD, just so ugly.  So even if I hate Cody's views on many things, I found myself rooting for "Jody." They come to play the game.  Jess is definately more "mouthy," but they both come to play & that will be fun to see imo.  Nice to meet you all. We are in NYC & my daughter & her friends went to the kick-off and had a blast.  I've only watched TAR sporatically over the years, but I am looking forward to next year, when this airs.

Welcome NYCMOM!  :conf:

I felt the same way first about Jess and Cody. My boyfriend didnít watch the feeds and is just a casual viewer. He LOVED Jess and Cody. I remember giving him attitude and saying what I didnít like about them and how the live feeds showed the real personalities. Then the house started bullying them even though they were the underdogs and already the next targets. I remember Cody going home and wishing for him to come back to take care of Paul. I love Jess and Cody from like week 2-3 on

Agreed. That was the leg of the ditch pole vaulting, lifting the furniture through the window (one of the moments I remember Kent & Vyxsin most for) and Ron being the controlling dad.

Wasn't high on the last one in 26, it was pretty much a Roadblock/Detour/Pit Stop leg, the kind I dislike the most. Hayley going ballistic with her lopsided helmet is the only thing that saved that episode for me.

Still kinda hoping this is just a transfer, though. Too many recent visits.

:welcome2: to RFF NYCMOM!  I did not watch this season so really appreciate your insights. Live feeds are way different from the show...

Could you do us a little summary?  Probs with others, controversy, best strengths? I was unaware of his PTSD...very sorry to hear that and hope the race does not aggravate it. Anything more would help those of us who did not watch  understand them better!

You can't say that They're going to Amsterdam. Amsterdam is the only major airport for the entirity of the Netherlands so it could be anywhere but I'm praying it's a connection as the Netherlands is too overused. A nice train ride to Bruges would be apreciated.

This is plausible, this opens up Belgium as a potential visit. I'd love Bruges or Antwerp.

Bruges is the most beautiful place I've ever visited, so having it on the race would be a dream. <3
It looks a lot like Venice though, so idk if they would do that after last season went there.

Sweet! Another one-time country! (TAR 19, the "muscles in Brussels")

 This route is already delivering in a big way.

Loved Antwerp Centraal Station, I took some pics of it from my recent trip to Europe, I'll try and post them

But the station alone was incredibly beautiful, and HUGE!

Since this route is basically cherrypicking off of all of our hopes and dreams, dare I hope for West Africa in leg 3?  :conf:

Brussels airline have many Western African destinations;

Accra
Abidjan
Banjul
Conakry
Cotonou
Dakar
Douala
Freetown
Kinshasa
Lome
Luanda
Oauagadougou
Yaounde

This means that we have a high chance of West Africa and I would hope for Dakar, Banjul, Accra & Abidjan.

Always good to see underused countries on TAR!

BELGIUM YESSSSS!!!

Is this route all about visiting the underused countries or something? First Iceland, then Belgium!
HOWE DOES HE DO THAT?

Hopefully this NEVER happens. Not overused Asian countries :groan:

I'd predict South Africa. They could also throw in Mauritius there into the mix. If that's so  :bunny Visits to Iceland and Belgium alone are  :conf: time for underused countries to shine!

Spain is also an underused country unlike the overused Spanish-speaking South American country of Argentina.

Usually rail travel is involved between Europe legs,
For convenient train travel, cities with direct train from Belgium should have high chances

Germany (Frankfurt / Cologne / Small towns like Bonn / Mainz / Heidhberg) (with self-driving)
Austria (Salzburg / Innsbruck)

LOL..
I doubt they will visit Indonesia this time because there's an active volcano, mount Agung curently at level 4 alert (the highest) and could erupt anytime. More than 140.000 residents have been evacuated. If it erupted, it could affect the flight to Indonesia, Australia, and Oceania. Some countries have issued travel warning to their citizens including US and Australia.
