And Phil finally gets his own intro card.
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

This feels really weird. :/
Maybe seeing Phil in the intro isn't a bad thing, only that it's unprecedented for TAR or any other show, but I always enjoyed the teams' shots at home and on the race course.

This looks very cheap, and we all said the same thing when the font was changed.

Just thought it be curious to point out the destinations that are featured in the background of each team intro:

I'm not completely sure about some of them,  which by the way some of the scenery is cut-out in a weird way.

Cedric & Shawn - Paris, France
Henry & Evan - India????
Cody & Jessica - Egypt
Kristi & Jen - San Francisco, USA (erm... why??? they get a US destination)
Eric & Daniel - Greece????
Dessie & Kayla - China
Joey & Tim - Sydney, Australia
April & Sarah - Russia
Trevor & Chris - Peru????
Lucas & Brittany - Rome, Italy???
Alex & Conor - Rio de Janeiro, Brasil

Phil - NYC

Wow, I just realised that half of these are just random locations not on the race course.
This makes the intro even less appealing to me.

This intro and the team ID font are improvements over the huge, flying Opening Credits of Doom used on TAR28 and TAR29.

But seriously though, why is it so hard for them to emulate TARAu's opening credits. Like, all 3 of them are excellent and simple. No need for fancy graphics, huge team names, passport stamps, Survivor-style dramatic editing.

I'll take the green screen over the awkward staring into camera of the early 20s seasons

It's  Phil, for the first time ever is mentioned and shown in the opening credits. Take that, Probst!

The green screen with the superimposed location images was as much a matter of necessity since TAR 30 was greenlighted, casted, organized and filmed on such a compressed schedule, and post-production had less than two months to have all the episodes be edited, music scored, chryons imposed, and opening credit sequence edited. I'm not sure they would have had time to separately film all 11 teams in a home location, especially since Cody and Jessica only has about a week after the BB finale to prepare for leaving for TAR filming.

TAR29 (and 26 for that matter) was able to film the newly formed teams for the opening. It doesn't have to be at home. I don't even think any of the recent seasons had teams at their homes. Probably all filmed in the same place as the pre-show interviews and stuff anyway.

69-74 of the season preview has the teams running out of the Hotel ibis in Tangier. It's just outside the airport, so they must have been housed there the evening they arrived from Antwerp, and released at the same time.
Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

I'm kinda glad they didn't touch the title card and turn it into a more CGI, stylized globe or something like the team backgrounds.

I have added a set of photos starting here. http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,33991.msg1215312.html#msg1215312

Could someone please double check these and do a master list by the numbers correlating Neobies info and credits to all who helped? Let me know too if any are missing and we will re look! :tu

Between the elephant and Prague caps there are a few frames of a rolling train; the locomotive, cars and color scheme match those used in Zimbabwe (source).
