I know I'm in the minority with this but I'm an Art/JJ fan and the fact that they're most likely the first gone sucks.

Not happy about the two teams on the bubble for Leg 2 either.

I was actually glad to see Art & JJ back for this season, but having them + Poopert + Afghanimals as the first free out?? Might be the best boot order of any AS ever. :cheer:

I was ambivalent about Art & JJ.  TBH, I barely remember them.  But if Rupert/Laura and the Afghanimals are officially out, this may be the first season EVER where I don't care which of the remaining teams win because I pretty much like them all.

As long as Vic & Nic get boot next I don't care who wins but hopefully Corinne and Eliza will win  :cheer:

26 showed that Asia -> Europe is possible as early as Leg 5 with as many as eight teams, so it's a letdown this time around that they won't leave the continent until Leg 6 in spite of that double-round in Laos.

If it's 2 legs in Vietnam, I would be a bit upset. We had Vietnam already back in 29.

Not too upset considering we haven't seen southern Vietnam on US TAR since season 15 & TAR Canada produced 2 awesome legs there, so I'm hopeful.

Considering the pattern...

TAR22: Leg 4/5 (2 countries)
TAR23: Last 3 (2 countries)
TAR24: First 6 (3 countries)*
TAR25: Last 3 (2 countries)
TAR26: First 4 (2 countries)
TAR27: Last 3 (2 countries)
TAR28: Last 3 (2 countries)
TAR29: Last 3 (2 countries)
TAR30: Last 2 (2 countries)

...having five Legs at the start of the Race in Asia, including possibly two in a brand new country that likely will never get visited on TARUS again, the route so far is perfectly fine.

And also remember the TAR's budget in 2018.

*An anomaly (the entire season is tbh lol) due to replacement legs, etc

Northern Vietnam is quite different from Southern Vietnam so

Couldn't they have just done two legs in Cambodia instead, one in Siem Reap when they were already there at its airport to revisit Angkor Wat and then another in the capital to pay tribute to the Khmer Rouge victims without a passport snafu this time around?

I am sick and tired of seeing Asia on this route. 5 legs is too many.  :groan:

GET OUT of there and head to Africa

I'm with Bourkie, hopefully they're making a big leap for next leg. Never want a route like Season 24 again =/

lulwut why is everyone having a meltdown

it's literally a country everybody's been asking for for years, an extremely undervisited region of a big country, and a traditional single leg in a country with great connections

Firstly only 4 legs have been confirmed so letís not jump to conclusions hey donít get me wrong I donít like this route too way to tropical and is in the south east Asia part mostly i think this is a wasted opportunity to go to the Middle East or even Bhutan Mongolia

The show could have the "best" route ever and still produce a horrible Race with poor tasks and a bad cast.

Other Races stay mostly in one continent, heck one country and have been just as enjoyable, if not MORE enjoyable than recent TARUS seasons.

Donít forget Season 6 spent the equivalent of 7 legs in Europe

And season 14 technically spent 8 in Asia

So 4-5 in Asia is hardly the worst, tbh

They could have gone this way Japan --> Oceania (2 Legs) --> Laos --> Africa (2 Legs) --> Europe --> South America (2 Legs).

I love Vietnam but it was just visited last S.29 with 2 Legs and we just spent at least a speculated 2 Legs in Laos, a neighbor of Vietnam. Maybe they want Floyd to take a trip down memory lane eh? For drama I reckon.

This. S22 had a great route, but i still didn't really enjoy it because the cast didn't really deliver, imo.

I'm pretty new to the community in that I only started watching TAR after Cody & Jessica were cast for S30... But since then I've been enthralled by the show and have watched the majority of the seasons available, mostly following the advice of the subreddit's season rankings. So I wouldn't consider myself a complete newbie.

That said, I don't get the hate for Art & JJ for S31. They were good at the race and entertaining. Maybe one of you can tell me why I'm wrong?

As long as TAR does not go to France this season I will be pleased because they have gone to France in 26, 27, 28, and 30 and 2 of those seasons were in the South of France. I'd like them to go to Germany or Austria instead of France (or even Switzerland) plz
