What happened in Vietnam 3?

The Blue team was accused of being "Producer's Pets", with someone claiming to be from production saying that producers fed them answers and solutions to tasks and worked behind the scenes to keep them in the race. When they finished in last place on a leg, the host said they were eliminated. Then later that night in their hotel room, someone (I think it was the host?) knocked on their door and gave them the next clue, saying they actually were still in the race and that the next leg started right now. They called it a twist, but audiences saw it as them keeping in the popular team by changing the rules. This was not helped by the fact that they won like seven legs in a row immediately following this. On the flip side, they DID finish in

4th

Me, however, I don't buy that. THEIR luck seems believable, and there really didn't seem to be any evidence that could be seen of producer meddling. When they showed up in 1st over and over again, they didn't MAGICALLY poof into 1st place like Regev does.

Maybe they edited it out of order? Maybe Regev and Helen really did finish the task first, but they made it look like they didnít to create drama. But like you said, thatís manipulative editing, which is stupid and pointless. In fact, letís talk about HaMerotz editing, because some things bother me. For example, theyíll show teams doing tasks at the same time (like the trivia challenge) even though thereís clearly only one station. Why not establish that thereís a queue and show teams waiting for their next turn? (I think I know why: thatís when teams film themselves, like we saw in the recent recap episode.) And as for pitstops, despite showing simultaneous footage of two teams racing there, we almost never see two teams on the mat at the same time. There are some exceptions, but itís very rare. The one that stood out to me the most was in Russia. Regev and Helen arrived at the Yield about 8 seconds after Daniel and Eliyahu, so it seems logical that theyíd arrive at the pitstop around the same time. But they arrive at the pitstop separately. Do they make teams wait for one team to leave the mat before letting another team on? And if so, why do that some times but not others? I just want some transparency, thatís all.

To be fair, this version likes to do more one-on-one discussion at the mat so they like to have only one team there at a time if it doesn't affect the results. I don't really mind that.

Yeah, thatís true.

Also I was going through international threads earlier and I found a Q&A with Talia and Koby after Hamerotz 3 ended. I wonder if we could try to get a Q&A from a team on this season.

It was also filmed one month before TAR 30. Between Chiang Mai & New York, this season and TAR 30 have had some strange coincidences.

Not only that, but also some tasks have very similar ideas:

"Answer questions about your partner, if you get any of them wrong, they have to suffer." (The Mexican Six Flags tasks and the unaired task in Bahrain)

"Memorize ten things and then find them amongst hundreds of other things." (The clay pot task in Bahrain and the Buddha task in Thailand)

Also thank goodness we have a two-episode leg after multiple legs with four or more episodes. This season is already really long, no need to make it longer.

I'm confused by the fruit task. Why did all of the months have a quote or something listed underneath them? Did that have anything to do with the task? Also, why were their baskets set up for August, September and October, when the only ones teams needed to fill up were January to May?

I just watched the TAR30 finale, and OH MY GOD they also had a task where one team member learned foreign phrases and relayed them to their partner! Why are so many tasks so similar between these two seasons???

Anne and Yarden
got eliminated, at least for my sake. I stumbled upon multiple spoilers that had them in the final three, so there's a good chance the spoilers I saw were completely wrong and I don't know who won. That's great, especially since I got TAR30 spoiled a day before I watched it.

Is it possible that there will be three Thailand legs? HaMerotz has never had the last two legs in different countries.

Only on HaMerotz LaMillion will you find teams making animal noises while rappelling down a waterfall.  :funny:

The connect the dots task and chopsticks task were so much fun and so cruel.

It depends on whether they counted Greece as one of the nine visited countries. It's unusual either way.

Also only on HaMerotz LaMillion is there a needle-in-a-haystack-task to determine the final three. It certainly looks like it from the preview.

In fact, Greece is definitely not featured for this season, but was visited when eliminated teams raced at the villa.

Today the final 3 will be revealed. Wonder if they will actually spend 3 legs in Thailand or the finale will be somewhere else.

This has run on a bit too long for one season of the Race. It'll be 5 months since the premiere on the 21st, even Season 5 took less time than this.

Yeah, part of that is due to them airing one episode a week sometimes as well as the multiple 4-parters.

I feel for Neta. Had to be hard to hear that news after leaving the umbrella factory before Evelin & Tohar. It was sad to see them go.

This season makes me angry.

There's no other way to put it. I am angry. I cannot possibly fathom what is going through the show-makers' minds to think that doing something that makes their viewers angry is a good idea. What a miserable sight, honestly. A black mark on the brilliance that is HaMerotz LaMillion.

It's just a BAD bad time for TAR in general. First we have Head-to-Head challenges that render the rest of the leg pretty much meaningless, and here we have luck-based challenges before the Pit Stops that render the rest of the leg pretty much meaningless. R&H in last place during the baskets? O&N arriving at the umbrella place in first? All completely meaningless. They could just send the teams from the Pit start straight to the umbrella place and it would be no different. Why should I bother being invested in any of the Race if nothing matters except the last task in the leg?

How many have we had so far? There was New York (It's luck-based whether locals will agree to help or not), Hawaii, Colombia, Jamaica, Russia pretty much, both Kyrgyzstan legs (for the latter, again dealing with locals), and now this! This has to be some of the worst course design I've seen in a long time on TAR.

In fact, this only fuels the conspiracy theory! Think about it. Luck-based tasks before the Pit Stop are the perfect way to artificially ensure that Regev & Helen survive. Just have them complete the task for a bit, then slip them a correct answer when no-one's looking. Bam, they're off to the Pit Stop to Race another day and get those ratings.

What a travesty. I can't wait for this to be over, so I can hopefully look forward to Season 7 being a WHOLE lot better.

G.B.- I think youíre reading too deep into some of these tasks to consider them ďluck-based.Ē Itís not luck whether or not a local helps you, it depends on how you approach them and how much charisma you have. Me personally, if I was a local who was asked for help, Iíd 100% do it. As for the New York task, Iíd say it wasnít luck because one of the places mentioned in the song was Hawaii, and since Hawaiians have American passports, any American would count. Itís not producersí fault only one team figured that out. Honestly the only ďlocal assistanceĒ task that Iíd count as luck-based was in Russia when they had to find someone whose birthday was that day.

As for how it helps Regev & Helen...look, HaMerotz doing luck tasks before the pitstop is nothing new, and by my count there were only five this season (Hawaii, Colombia, Jamaica, Kyrgyzstan 1, Thailand 2). Kyrgyzstan is debatable because it wasnít just based on luck, but also how well one person could lead the other, as well as their knowledge of the country. HaMerotz 5 also had a lot of luck tasks before the pitstop (Italy 2, Namibia 2, Vietnam, Cambodia), and there were no celebrity teams on that season. Itís shady that Helen found the right panella on the first try, but I do want to point out that Regev said in a confessional that he was waiting for her to find the right umbrella because she always had the luck on those tasks...only for him to be the one who found it. Either way Iím fed up with them and how they won the Return Ticket with manipulative editing, and they might be worse winners than Jessica & Cody, should that dreaded possibility happen.

At the end of the day, it IS a matter of opinion, but I really do consider "local help" tasks to be luck-based. People are all different. It doesn't matter how good of a salesman you are, or how charming you are, or how well you can communicate...some people just won't want to help, some people are too busy to help, and plenty of people (especially in Asia) do not want to be on camera.

The New York task is not exactly mitigated by the whole Hawaii thing. They still had to be lucky enough to find tourists from other countries in the middle of hustle-bustle New York.

I don't see how you consider Italy 2 from season 5 to be luck-based, though. That's a brain puzzle.

  I think you're confusing Italy 1 and Italy 2. Italy 1 was the Roman Numeral equation task, Italy 2 was finding a marked record in a record store.
