Since all this of the past 2 years supposedly started from a wet market, I kinda wonder if it's gonna cause TAR to move away from those staple "search a market for this and that"-type tasks in future seasons. I know TAR loves those because it gets racers running around in chaotic spaces, but it's a different world now.

Can we please leave the conspiracy theories to another forum?

Why has TAR US never been to Israel when TAR AUS was there in their first season?
Is it security concerns, or thoughts that it would be too controversial in some way for US audiences?
The TAR AUS Israel segments were impressive (Tel Aviv, Masada).

Same deal as Cuba.

US citizens aren't supposed to go to Cuba, but that's not true of Israel.

The divisiveness concerning both countries is a specifically American issue that permitted TARAUS (and later TARCAN) to claim them from the status of terrae incognitae.

I'd love if they reincorporated the Fastforward in a different way.

4 to 5 in the entire season (None before final 5 teams left) and teams can only get 1 fastforward. Cause I remember having a fastforward in nearly every leg was probably too hard to keep up with and only having 1 an entire season is kind of boring, especially if no one goes for it. Having 4-5 would allow some teams to have a second chance to stay in the race and can make up for bad luck like a bad taxi cab driver or missing a train/bus.

Been waiting for this for a LONG time!

Some tasks Australia did, like the Detour of carrying the cross through old Jerusalem, that won't fly well with a politically-charged American audience (see: TAR22 Hanoi)

My personal wishlist:

Indonesia:
Jakarta (my home city)
Mount Bromo
Danau Toba
Padang (Nasi Padang Switchback from TAR21, this time they have to eat 3 dishes :conf:)
Labuan Bajo
Singkawang
Semarang
Raja Ampat (Hope visiting Papua isnít controversial)
(Would love a task that would involve Indonesia and the Netherlands, something similar to TAR18 Leg 6 Tea Challenge)

Australia:
Melbourne (my 2nd home city)
Hobart
Launceston
Bendigo
Ballarat

Malaysia:
Malacca (How to get there)
Another Penang leg!

China:
Xinjiang (hope not too controversial but the landscape there is beautiful!)
Lanzhou
Tianjin
(I hope they would ride the bullet train for once!)

Others:
Bhutan (hope itís not too expensive), Brunei (not too controversial), Qatar (hope Elise stops hating the country)

Although TARCAN will survive on CTV after its latest season's COVID outbreak, the fate of TARAUS on Channel Ten is up in the air - between these two scenarios, which seems more likely for the American flagship based on the newest episode preview?
