Love the theme, especially because I research/find inspirational people for a living.

Curious to see who gets cast!

As they used the word "nominate", this sounds like to me like not Survivor but the reality competition show by Mike Holmes (superstar no-nonsense contractor on HGTV Canada, my little brother's idol), Home Free, which has had 2 seasons on FOX. Contestants helped build houses, each of whom had a hero or heroes they played for who changed their life in some way. At the end of each episode, as they were eliminated, the twist was that their respective hero won the house they helped build in that episode.

But in this case, the nominated people get the experience of racing.

I remember that Maanca! I think the race will be better; maybe some teams will be the inspirational person and the person that nominated them. That would making some interesting TV imo, depending on the dynamic.

I think they could do a gimmick at the starting line where 11 inspirational people get paired up with the person that nominated them right then and there.

I just started it - there is only 1 person/team on it. LOL. But someone remind me once filming has started, since I wouldn't want to jeopardize anyone's chances of being cast.
The twist is they are casting for "heroes" but that is loosely defined as in anyone can be a hero. People can also nominate a person/team for consideration - with or without their knowledge.

You mean you took real people? Or more like archetype of people?

I'm thinking we will have a teacher's team, police or firefighters, and people who did big things for their local communities (not only big cities).

I'm really wondering how they are going to manage the whole nomination thing... :didimiss:
 I mean, why cast someone that didn't even try to be on the show.. that's kind of a slap in the face for everybody that applied. Best case scenario would be to factor all the nominations for people who really applied.

Like if they got a good nomination story from someone, and the nominated person applied, then it's easier to just present it as a person who was nominated. (but the racer really applied).

Anyway... I am curious also to see how it will impact the casting process. We would usually get a message on social media a week after deadline saying everybody who was contacted for round 1 has been contacted, thank you for trying, etc...

They will contact any nominees and ask them to send in an audition video if they are interested. And to be honest, imo, it won't be much different than when they recruit people or send out blind offers to certain people. They do this every year and have already started to do it this year.

Mike Bickerton posted instagram from Vancouver last weekend, that may mean he is doing second phase auditions for TARC 6.

Mark was on Vancouver Island, posting from a scenic lookout (Malahat, I think) a few weeks ago - could have been vacay but he's been doing his hotel art series again as well.

NO!!! Canada is a beautiful country and has so much to see and do! It makes this franchise so unique! Canada is a wonderful country and different from every other! I am proudly Canadian and don't know if i'd watch with all international legs! There's still so many hidden treasures the show hasn't visited! The heroes twist i LOVE!!!! Canada is a united strong country where almost ANYONE can be considered a hero!

Some places that could be visited:
Iqaluit (actually in the city)
Revelstoke
Mont Tremblant
Kamloops
Grande Prairie
Labrador
Thunder Bay
Churchill
Brandon
Niagara Falls
Sherbrooke
Fredericton
Nahanni National Park (Canada's Newest)
Moose Jaw
Lethbridge

These are locations we should deffinetly be looking at in May! These are all considered potential. Season 6 should be delivering!

I enjoy teh 10 team 11 leg format as well! I rather TAR Canada than TAR USA

I'd like to see Tar Canada do what Asia5 did. Spend 3 legs in Canada, 6 legs abroad and then 3 legs in Canada.

Can we speculate here about the route?

I think they will have legs in these cities/Provinces:

- Nanaimo (Vancouver Island has not be visited since season 2, and Nanaimo is a big city there. It would be cool that as a clue, they would just go to a bakery and be given Nanaimo bars, and guess that they have to travel to Nanaimo)
- Manitoba leg: either have another Winnipeg leg (maybe finish line) or in some far remove place in Manitoba, maybe Churchill? the Polar bear capital
- Thunder Bay, my guess for the 'annual Ontario leg'
- One leg in the north, maybe a new city like Inuvik, NWT?
- Fredericton : The only provincial capital not visited
- Prince Edwards Island Leg : A task of two in Charlottetown, then the rest of the leg somewhere else, like Summerside?
- Quebec leg: For the annual Quebec leg, it's a bit more complicated because Montreal and QC city have both been overdone, so I guess they could go anywhere rural like: Gaspé, Saguenay or Abitibi. Or maybe more urban with Trois-Rivière, Rimouski or Sherbrooke. Still a lot of potential for Quebec legs

Also an Idea for Starting Line: West Edmonton Mall! I know it's weird but it is a Canadian Landmark and they didn't visit it last time. How amazing would it be to have the Starting Line at one end and to have a task at the other end (it could be the water park, the attraction park). Another major landmark not visited is Lake Louise!

The starting line and the first leg are always in separate provinces, so if we have a Edmonton starts, it opens up the possibility for a first leg in the North!

For the international legs:

- Japan, would be the perfect asian country to host 2 legs  (connection with the way Canadian treated Japanese immigrants during WW2)
- Australia, similar country to Canada (relation with UK) (I don't see Japan AND Australia being done at the same race, so I would guess one or the other)
- Mexico (For the 'Hot Latin country, ala Chile/Argentina/Cuba/Panama)
-Costa Rica

If we ever go back to Europe one day:
-UK for obvious reasons
-Belgium/Netherlands : For the WW2 connection, could host 2 legs back to back,
-Ireland

Other random:
-Morocco, if they want to go to Africa
-Algeria, direct flight from Canada
-Israel , also direct flight from Canada and good connection/relation between Canada and Israel
-Dubai (because most versions of TAR went to Dubai, lol)
