Georgia peach, please release the photos and videos you promised on Oct 24th. I have been lurking and patiently waiting for days now :(

Welcome to RFF, ss. Peach will release what she has, when she feels fit!

Yes, she will. Just be patient. We're not in a rush.
Whatever.

Thank you! Yes, I do know that, but I was just hoping to speed along the process (just because she mentioned that there would be loads of photos and videos for weeks to come)

With a premiere less than six weeks away, and a cast reveal beforehand, there will be plenty to digest.

From the Media:

Quote
travel to their first destination, Iceland, where they must traverse a massive canyon high above the Geitargljufur River

teams will travel to 10 countries, 21 cities and over 29,000 miles in the quest to cross the finish line

Who is checking the count?? Are they right? Are WE right??

Don't think we had the traverse either....

Yeah the countries is right because I believe they include the US as one of the 10 countries. They have only two countries to have two legs this season so 10 countries.

From the CBS press release:

Teams begin their adventure in Washington Square Park in New York City and immediately travel to their first destination, Iceland, where they must traverse a massive canyon high above the Geitargljufur River.

I am really curious to see this part of the episode because I spent a lot of time on Google Earth trying to find this site using the information on that first clue. First of all, searching for Geitargljufur gets you nowhere. I'm not actually sure that's the right name. I eventually figured out that gljufur is Icelandic for gorge or canyon and that there is a Geita River along part of the Kaldidalur Road (spelling may be a bit off) that the clue said to take. Problem is that the river runs through fairly flat terrain and the only gorge I could find was about 20-30 feet deep and about 50-75 feet across. Not very impressive except that the lava in the area is interesting. I'm thinking they must have followed the Geita river up to the source at the LangjŲkull glacier. I tried to find a suitable gorge there but Google Earth is lacking detail and I couldn't identify one. There are some peaks above the river that they could rig something between but it appeared it would be at least a quarter mile across and I'm not sure how you would get up or down from the peaks.

If they're like HaMerotz and a few TARPH2 and TAR China ones, then yay. If they're like any TAR Canada ones, then no thank you  :cmaslol

Iím not excited that itís at the end of the leg and basically is the sole determinant of leg placements and the main reason a team got eliminated

Itís a bad implementation and placement of a type of task I didnít really even want to see

I hope itís the only one we see if it is a face off

What's the task?

And that's exactly what I meant about it being more TAR Canada-like. HaMarotz, TARChina and TARPH's were usually (if not all) in the first half of their Legs with plenty more tasks following.

Yeah, not the best placement for it. I'm hoping the last place team was the last one to get to the Face Off.

On second thought, you guys are right that the placement is not the best for this task.
And I also hope that the eliminated team didn't fall behind just because of it.

dryedmangoez, the task is the frites/french fries one. I assume it's some kind of race.

Oh! I didn't really follow the tasks live. But looking at it, it seems like a HaMerotz-style wacky/offbeat kind of task. Not a completely sport-like task like TAR Canada.

But yeah, the placement on the Leg is  :cmas3. And that's just true for any TAR that has used the Double Battle/Face Off on their Race. Should be interesting to see how TARUS implements and executes it.

Or it's because TAR is about to start on January 3rd, a few days from now.
Whatever.

Even their Insta accounts have started again as well to see/stalk around. So happy that will be three days to go.

3 Teams applied.

8 Teams recruited.
