South Africa is such, a good place to go with the Garden Route. Crazy that they, have not done Bloukrans Bridge Bungee Jump yet on the US TAR.

I really hope there will be at least equal MM/FF ratio this season. In last 3 seasons, we had 5 more MM teams than FF teams!!! Sexist as hell. Also TAR31 & TAR32 all had only 3 females in F6, so I would say they would try to prevent this to happen 3rd season in a row, so cast would consists of stronger FF teams and weaker MM teams like in TAR14/17/25.

Is there some showmance in BB21 who you can see in TAR33? (I quit BB)

Route - Europe, Asia & probably 2 legs in Africa for sure. SA??? Maybe... But I just can't see to Australia/NZ to happen. That continent is boring in producents eyes, too similiar to US.

TARAUS4 is supposed to travel internationally, no? :D

I mean I would love AU/NZ revisit too, but I just think production is over that continent, lol. NZ adventure legs are replaced by Switzerland now, and Australian cities are too similiar to US finale cities.

But Australia is still an absolutely massive country. They have yet to visit Uluru, Tasmania, Cable Beach or Kangaroo Island. Plus there are still major Australian cities that have yet to be visited (Melbourne, Adelaide, Canberra, etc).

And correct me if Iím wrong, but weíve never had a completely urban Auckland leg, right?

What's the airport situation like in Australia? I know Sydney has a huge airport but logistically I could see them having a hard time getting other places. Australia is so big and no one lives in the interior.

Sydney and Melbourne are the main airports in Australia. From these two hubs, they can connect to more remote places in Australia!

Both Alice Springs and Uluru airports have nonstop flights to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, which all have connections to Asia and the U.S.!

Leg 1: LA  to Busan, SK
Leg 2: Busan to Taipei, Taiwan
Leg 3: Taipei to Singapore
Leg 3: Singapore to Malaysia (No flight)
Leg 4: Malaysia to Melbourne
Leg 5: Melbourne to Perth
Leg 6: Perth to Cape Town, SA
Leg 7: Rural SA leg
Leg 8: Cape Town to Lagos, Nigeria
Leg 9: Lagos to  Madrid, Spain
Leg 10: Madrid to Lisbon, Portugal
Leg 11: Lisbon to San Juan, Costa Rica
Leg 12: San Juan to Nashville, TN

I was thinking something like this but Perth to Cape Town is 13 hours. Lol now I know why they haven't been to Oceania in a while, it's a long trip no matter where you come from.

Apollo Bay, Ballarat, Bendigo, Great Otway, Healesville, Queenscliff, Port Campbell and Yering are fairly remote just located outside Melbourne.

If I remember correctly, every visit to Australia has had 1 urban and 1 rural leg...

Sydney and Coober Pedy in Season 2
Brisbane and rural north Queensland in Seasaon 4
Perth and Arnhem Land in Season 9
Sydney and Broken Hill in Season 18

With what you're saying Claude, a leg on the Great Ocean Road could make a great second leg in Australia after a potential urban Melbourne leg!

The only problem here, is that these cities aren't big enough to host TAR legs!

True, but multiple small towns could be used in sequence!

A self-driving leg along the Great Ocean Road seems possible

Why would they be too small for a more rural based leg? The tasks can be out in the surrounding countryside. They have used much smaller places in previous seasons. Plus the whole leg could be based on a selfdriving trip with tasks along the way with the town centre as the pitstop.

So since 31/32 had a combined total of one African leg, Iím betting that weíre getting several for 33

I definitely agree. If memory serves correctly, only Seasons 1, 5, 7, 10, and 30 had three legs in Africa. Perhaps we could see something similar? I wonder if 4 African legs would be out of the question? Fingers crossed!

Season 32 will not visit Africa as we never had 4 consecutive Africa legs before. IN MY OPINION>

Is this the first time theyíve filmed two consecutive seasons the same time of year? 32 is pretty South America/ SE Asia heavy bc of it being filmed in the USís fall. They need to do something different. Afaik the only reason they didnít film a season this spring/summer is that 32 was rough on the production team and they wanted a break. That may be wrong but I think Phil said it was three weeks in before they even slept in a bed.

Honest speculation on possible routes is okay.

But lets not turn this into a wishlist thread please? We have another place for that.

Thanks!

He said it was tied with 3 for toughest.
