Don't know if this means anything but they haven't really said "renewed for Season 31". Just renewed for "2018-2019 season". Does anyone think they are going back to 2 cycles a year?
This time, CBS did not mention 2 cycles for Survivor in the renewal announcement, which was different.

Agree with Granth tbh, let's not expect 2 seasons unless explicitly announced.

Speaking of the Balts, maybe Riga will finally make its long awaited appearance...

The unvisited nation(s) without a travel advisory besides Latvia would include Cyprus and Slovenia.

I'm gonna stray away from the all-star discussion.

How about the 25-30 days? Doesn't Phil usually advertise this with "12 legs, 21 days"? Could this mean a longer-than-usual route?

I think that includes whatever time was spent in sequester pre-race. Jody mentioned in a video (?) that they were in a hotel for five days before the starting date.

This is correct. Racers are away from home for 30 days, but we do a lot of pre-production stuff before the race starts. S30 filmed from 10/1 - 10/24 but we left home on 9/25.

Hey Jen, it's great to hear from you that you guys know the Race behind the scenes! I like it and I want more information on what did you guys do pre-race and after you guys landed on the Finish Line!

Hey Jen! It's always great to see racers post in TAR forums and share their behind-the-scenes knowledge. I was actually at the live start and saw you off!

What do you mean? It's quite a usual filming time.

Because it fits productions' schedule? Remember Phil is doing other Nat Geo gigs now so that has to be considered as well.

Don't worry. We are still getting two filmings this year.  :d025:

Does anyone have any idea why they're doing TAR31 in a few weeks/June instead of doing it later?

Agreed, 15/19/23/27 all filmed wholly in the summer whereas 17/21/25/29 were in the springtime.

Is this real?

No offense but like that's a terrible gimmick for a season. Like I don't want a gimmick in the next season but like even if they had to introduce a gimmick I'd much rather anything THAN that.

I just saw this and if this is true, I will be like:"Why would they do this?!" This mashup is the worst idea ever since #TeamBigBrother win the race on Season 30! Please don't do this to me!

I love Big Brother and I loved Jess and Cody's win, and I don't want to see this. Remember how the perfect strangers season was good???? Do that again!!

I can only imagine who they have cast for this...

JUST NO.
So the Race is now a spin-off show of Big Brother?
I won't believe this is real until I see an official CBS announcement, or the race gets underway.

If that happens, the show is done.

I don't want this, as I said above, but I'm curious why you guys think this means the race is done? Is it done for you? Or you really think it will be the last season if this happens?

Big Brother has a bigger audience than TAR. The fans are nuts, as you have already seen. This would bring in so many BB fans to watch TAR. I think it could be good for ratings, I just don't want to see it because they will pick all the people I hate to run the race.

But I do think it will be successful in terms of ratings. BB fans are insane.

If it is a last season, i'd say give us with we want, which is a regular season.

We've had 31 seasons and all of us here know that one day, TAR was going to end.

The least we can do is be happy that we had those 31. Could've been less than that.

I don't know if they can fill 11 teams, considering that there's a very small likelihood of most Big Brother contestants being close friends in real life.

BUT NO.

If this is coming from TMZ, I'll wait for a more valid source.
