Guys Info is NOT the point. Right or Wrong.

The point is that from day one here The FIRST POST IN SPOILERS SAYS NO FUTURE INFO!!

How would you feel if a crazy loon targeted TAR?  Because they knew days ahead where and when they would be?

It is highly dangerous and against our rules, so DO NOT DO IT AGAIN.


An hour maybe, days no.

And THAT is a MODERATOR call.

I have no control over others, if they want to be irresponsible I cannot help it. But here you do it again, and that's it.


PLEASE READ POST #1 CLOSELY IF YOU HAVE NOT  ALREADY.

It is potentially DANGEROUS to tell today's world where teams will be ahead of time..

It is NOT allowed here at RFF and I hope other thoughtful  posters will consider that as well.

You can trust that RFF has things well in hand, and you will be welcome to join us at the right time for more fun.

RULES:

No location info to be revealed before teams are on the way. (I'll let you know when!)

NO spoiling of the Final 3 Finish order.

Respect each other, love the game, and have a super fun time!

RFF's Golden Rule:
Have RESPECT for each other, regardless of opinion. This of course includes no flaming/insulting other users and/or their posts.

Not trying to be argumentative but sincerely confused. How does not posting future locations reconcile with all the posts of future flights from various airports other that a lack of certainty? Also, if hints of future locations aren't posted how will we get sightings in the future? Isn't production responsible for providing and ensuring team security?

We protect 3 things here.

The Start Line, The Finish Line , and the Final 3 Finish order.

We also do not post concrete info re locations in advance. Lack of certainty IS the deal.

That is our choice, it is not up for discussion.

We have covered this over and over again, and I am sorry some of you may not agree.

This is one case that we feel it is the RIGHT thing to do.

Spoilers are fun, but even taking the slightest risk of endangering our racers, or beloved crew is not happening here.

Neither is HURTING the show by publishing the winner order. I have been there done that in Season 11 when a top to bottom boot list was shared. It ruined the anticipation and the buzz and the suspense. Same more recently.
We need good ratings, so this is a small give back to TAR for all the joy they give us.

Move on okay? No further discussion on this now... maybe later when we have all slept a week.

I was going to ask if there was possibly a fast forward in this leg but doesnt that mean you do a task and go automatically to the pitstop? all teams were sighted at the bar so not likely unless they all declined

Highly unlikely. They've never done a fast forward this late in the race and I doubt they ever will. It would suck some of the drama out of the leg and make cab driver luck in getting to the clue box first even more important. They should be working to make cab drivers less important, not more.

The job does not end here. Experience taught us that sightings can still pop up even after the season filming is over. Wouldn't be the first time neither the last one.

You can post sightings during the final leg. You cannot post any finish line pics unless cleared by a moderator! You cannot post any finish line placements!

Though I'd really like them to beat out the current BB/TAR crossover team, Rachel/Brendon, and get at least second.
I kinda hope they don't  :D :angel
Though, at least, I don't think any team will ever even get the chance to reach the Final 3 twice considering TAR's future.

Jody is already better than Brenchel imo..  Brenchel played against weaker competition on season 20 and still barely squeaked by never winning a single leg.

I've only watched 3 seasons... but this seems like a really stout cast compared to the seasons I watched when they had very few what id consider athletes

You can post sightings during the final leg. You cannot post any finish line pics unless cleared by a moderator! You cannot post any finish line placements!

If you have any doubts about it, go the archive section, pick a previous season and see the live sightings and you will see that there are lot of pics and info of each final leg. However, you'll never find info about who won, who was second or third place.

If you look at past seasons, you will also see that not everybody is interested in the boot order. Many just like to know info on the routes, detours, roadblocks, etc.

It was when 5 teams were remaining and were to be cut to 4 teams for next leg. It was Leg 10.
Whatever.

That was in the Final Five, and TAR25 also had one. It's also the latest a Fast Forward has popped up in the Race for quite some time.

although.. Five M/M teams and none of them made it to the finale.. That is insane..
I guess we know the final 3. In TAR 23, none of the 5 MM teams made the finals [either].
I'm totally okay with this.  As I said several pages back, consider it another big dose of karma for CBS and their casting department.  They really thought that America would like a whopping FIVE men's teams in the cast?  That was just way too many.  Season after season, we get a meager number of women's teams, yet they feel okay overcasting and overloading us with four and, three times (TAR4, TAR23, and now TAR30), five men's teams?!  Casting?!  So to have none of them make it to the end yet again makes me all giddy inside.

This is a decent parallel to TAR23, though: five men's teams, all of them eliminated before the end, with four of them falling in a row.  Rowan & Shane, Chester & Ephraim, Brandon & Adam, and Tim & Danny for TAR23, and Joey & Tim (Eaters), Shaun & Cedric (NBA), Trevor & Chris (Violinists), and Eric & Daniel (Twins) for TAR30.  And the final men's team gets the ax right before the end -- Leo & Jamal for TAR23, and now Alex & Connor (Indy) for TAR30.  In addition, one coed team and two women's teams were eliminated over the course of each season -- Hoskote & Naina, Nicky & Kim, and Ally & Ashley for TAR23, and now Kayla & Dessie (Ring Girls), April & Sarah (Yoga Moms), and Lucas & Brittany (Lifeguards) for TAR30.

Good parallel, and good end result for this leg.

So Cody & Jessica (Jody), Henry & Evan (Debaters), and Jen & Kristi (Skiers) are our F3, huh?  All three have sounded like they were in front at different times (with Jen & Kristi sounding like they were in or near the front a bit more than the other two), so it could be a tough race to the end.  Hoping there is one.

And I'm just glad that another women's team has finally cracked the F3 after so long!  I think Amy & Maya were our last one to do so five seasons ago, right?  So Jen & Kristi are the magic tenth one to make it there, following Lyn & Karlyn (TAR10), Dustin & Kandice (TAR11), Charla & Mirna (TAR11), Jaime & Cara (TAR14), Brook & Claire (TAR17), Nat & Kat (TAR17), Kisha & Jen (TAR18), Mona & Beth (TAR22), and Amy & Maya (TAR25).  Congrats, ladies, for joining that super-rare club of women's teams who reach the end!  After the other two were booted so soon this season, I really worried for them, but they turned out to be one of the strongest teams this season, if not the strongest (hopefully)!

Either way, with Cody & Jessica at the end, Paul Abrahamian's head must be exploding right now.  Or it will be when he hears of this.

Whew.  Sorry for all the trivia.  Just had to vent my excitement about this somehow. :)

IK no talk about the finale location, but i recall phil saying something about heights, imagine for a crazy first that he has the finish line at the top of something very BIG they have to climb too?
 :spy:

would make for very good tv, *are you scared to climb to win a mill?* and would have us at the edge of our seats if there was a race to the top

This could also unfortunately backfire, Brenchel's 2nd season had a Finish Line dependent on who got to the final cluebox first because it was skydiving to the Finish Line :/

I remember that, wasnt that for allstars .

this is a big season since its 30. I hope they go all out and make it a crazy finish line. it has to do something with heights because we didnt see anything crazy height wise for spoilers in the legs.

I've only watched about 5 seasons. Has that happened before where Phil goes to eliminate a team without them finishing the leg?

Yeah. It usually happens about once a season

I think 5 or 6 times in all? Our TAR Wiki would have that info, go post in Q's and it will get answered.
