Will this season be All-Star?

Gord and Wayne seem to think so!

Hoping to have international legs back once more, only at least 2-3 countries other than Canada.

If it's All Star, I feel they would put some international to make it WOW

Do you guys think they would put Winners in?
I know production loves Steph/Kristen, Gino/Jesse and Sam/Paul so I feel if they bring any winners if would be these 3, and maybe James/Anthony.

If they dont put S/K then they really need Meaghan/Nathalie for strong female representation

So they wasted Jet & Dave on TARC7 when they were going to do All-Stars for TARC8 anyway?  :idgit

As I've said to a couple people, I figure Canada's Choice was just the "litmus test" for how the fans would react to one returning team.

I really really hope it’s not an All-Star season. Let the “peasants” compete. There are so many people that want to be on TARC it would be a shame to give past teams a do-over.

I think they didn't even know if they would get a season 8. It took a loooonnnng time for season 7 to be confirmed. Maybe they said: well this is probably the last season, and second chance fits the theme of brining a team back...

But I agree, they waster Jet/Dave on this season, and I don't think they should bring them back.

I feel like to be competitive, one of the requirement should be that teams have won at least 1 leg. 36 teams have won a leg, so that would give them a lot of options (I guess only Frankie/Amy  and Phil/Martina would be screwed by this). They could even bring teams that were eliminated early but still won a leg (Megan/Courtney from S5, Todd/Anna from S6 or Kristen/Darren from S1). Here is my dream cast if they do All-Star (and I included winners, and excluded unrealistic options, ex: Vanessa and Jillian/Emmett)

- Natalie/Meaghan, 2th place from Season 2: won 7 legs
- Sam/Paul, Winners from season 5: won 6 legs
- Steph/Kristen, Winners from Season 4: won 5 legs
- Taylor/Courtney, 2th place from Season 6: won 5 legs
- Dave/Irina, 4th place from Season 7: won 4 legs
- Aarthy/Thinesh, 5th place from Season 7: won 3 legs
- Brent/Sean, 3rd place from Season 3: won 2 legs
- Leanne/Mar, 6th place from Season 6: won 2 legs
- Hal/Joanne, 6th place from Season 1: won 1 leg
- Neil/Kristen, 7th place from Season 3: won 1 leg

I guess Gino/Jess would probably cast, I just don't like them lol

If there is no winners: I would replace Sam/Paul by Pierre/Michel, the twins from season 2
And Steph/Kristen by Adam/Andrea from season 5

Dave & Irina would totally be back. They got people talking about the show like never before.

As for the international...hopefully, hopefully. But getting the best ratings in 3 years and a quick renewal off an all-domestic season may serve as validation to the producers to do it again. Even though the casting probably had more to do with it than route.

Wow! I hope All-Stars Season is Season 8, but they need to do it RIGHT!

We need a STRONG cast and FULL INTERNATIONAL route! What's the fun in racing around Canada again?
I enjoy ''The Big Three' Reality TV shows!

So they opened applications right after season finished airing in previous years, right? This time they didn't do it... I am confused... Why teams were contacted while season 7 was still airing? Will they filming and air season 8 AS sooner than usually? Kinda like in Australian Survivor doing it right now...

Applications are not opened.

S6 had the lowest ratings of the 6 seasons, and CTV only had a contract for 6 seasons. The network probably took its time to renew because of the lower ratings. This season saw a big improvement in ratings, so probably and easy decision to renew.

They usually open auditions late in the year - Novemberish- with a deadline around Christmas time. I think last year it was a little earlier.

All this talk about All-Stars is speculation right now. I think it was partially brought on by Dave/Irina constantly saying they’re on the All-Star season - a bit premature I think, but I guess he had to take the spotlight away from the winners.

If they did an All-Stars I'd like all winners so far to be a part. But I don't know if Tim Sr. would do it again.

It remains to be seen, but in the wake of our federal election on Monday, this show's philosophy of Canadians celebrating themselves instead of seeing the world may have just backfired on Season 8.

With Justin Trudeau's unfortunate re-election, many in the west (very Conservative country) are feeling shut out and now talking separation from the east. If you've noticed the #Wexit hashtag on Twitter, that's what it's about. At least one former racer has tweeted it, Mellisa from Season 6.

Also, the election resulted in a resurgence of the Bloc Quebecois in Quebec, a party that's long wanted to separate that province from Canada.

In short, yeah, Canadians ain't patting ourselves on the back too much these past couple days. I'm born and raised in this country and have never seen it as divided as it is right now. This could spell at least a few applicants, particularly in the west, bailing on their applications.

I'd be surprised if it makes too much of an impact.  If anything, the show focuses more on bringing the country together and showing how people are people, regardless of their regional/political background.  If anything it may help the producers vet the applicants in a different way - I can't imagine them casting anyone who is overtly biased against another group of people.  That may be a part of Canada, but not one we want to encourage or give another platform to - there are other more suitable platforms for that discussion.

It's pretty dead in here....

 :conf: :cheer: :conf: :cheer:

Where are we hoping are teams will go this year?

I'm hoping for 2 legs in Quebec!! One in Nunavut! A visit to Labrador!
2 international legs! (Something easy like Windsor-Detroit, and Newfoundland-St-Pierre et Miquelon)
NO BC VISIT!   :groan:  or maybe just 1 lol but not 3 legs
NO VISIT TO TORONTO! Starting line... used in 2 legs + the finale... woah 4 times.

ANDDDDDDD I hope to get cast  :lol:

Maybe after all of this time we could get a return to Nunavut? I would even be fine with another leg in Iqaluit

Canada is doing a test of their emergency system to cell phones, tv, radio, etc (I never did get a notification last time lol) - but the only province/territory they won't be doing is Nunavut. No reason given. coincidence?
