Loved that Universal Studios task! :D

This was a great Leg. Maybe the best LA Leg of any TAR I've seen hehe
It made me miss Jin Xing and Hans though. If only just to see them be Bill and Rose and be cowboy action stars.

give me full lay of leg

give me full lay of leg

I loved every part of this Leg.

The waterbikes were a fine start to the Leg. The Oscar Lego task was a great excuse to be in front of Dolby Theater.

But the bungee/clue grabbing Road Block.  WOW!  That might have been the most difficult bungee jump task I've ever seen on TAR.  Certainly more difficult than any of the other "jump and grab" tasks.  The ladder was definitely a big part of what made the task so hard.  It was so unstable, their teammates and even crew had to hold the ladder steady just so they could make it up.  Plus, they had to grab two halves.   And teams failed several times!  Amazing.

Then the Universal Studios task. I guess hearing them say English lines is amusing, but it really was a very cool and fun task.  And even with no Jin Xing and Hans, the teams were able to really provide lots of entertainment with the task.  I included a Universal Studios task on one of my TARPH fantasy Leg thingies, thinking it would be impossible for any TAR to actually do such a task.  And on the Universal Studios backlot.  But TAR China did it.  And it was awesome.

The Detour was simple, but good.  There's definitely been a lot of dancing this season, but it fit with the Leg and location.  The skills side of the Detour was also the type of task that could've easily been an Active Route Info task this season too.

And YAY to self-driving in Los Angeles.  Could've been even more fun with no GPS though lol


Seriously, I've been enjoying this season of TAR China so much.  Maybe my favorite non-Australian international TAR season ever.  Great teams, great tasks, great Legs, great episodes.

Nice, they went to Bronson Caves, I see on the wiki.

That's where the stock Batcave exit from the 60's Batman was filmed.

That could also be Half-Game (Half-Time) and Full Game (instead of court)
That seems the way they were being used, with Cheerleaders as a half-time attraction.

Really fun Atlanta leg.

Peach, how hot was that day? It looked hot.

Was almost expecting another leg with many repeated tasks from TAR US, but happy to learn that it was not the case.

That first route marker should be shown to westerners, not every Asian is good at math.

So happy for the team that won, they ran a perfect leg this time around.

Yo, yo!



I need the names of the Detour, as usual, but underneath is the location of the Graffiti Detour and I need that as well. Thanks!

Oh, and also, was there a limit on how many rounds the teams could have to get 100 points in Archery, or could they do as many rounds as they wanted?

BY THE WAY... What was with the random Doctor Who theme song after Liu & Xu completed the airplane task? Completely random. I thought I was going crazy, or I had left some other video file running...

It was a horrible hot day... broiling and very humid.

I wet to all the sites except the monster truck, I'll get you the addresses. The pub is my neighborhood.

There was finale drama, not sure it was mentioned? Would love to know if it was. Teams were give two ways to the top...was that explained?

More later, I have pics too. Was such  fun day!! Lots of stories!

艾布拉姆斯=Abrams (In Chinese, Ai Bu La Mu Si), 公司=Company, 大楼= Building/Tower, so Adrams Fixture Corporation Building (565 Northside Drive SW, Atlanta, GA)??
RB: 2 rounds. Each member has 6 arrows and the total time limit is 4 mins.

BTW,  the show had said that the Stone Mountain is the eighth wonder of the world, is it true? I can't find any information about it on the official website.
And why the lady told to Team Liu Xiang that they might not be allowed to climb the mountain?

Not just Doctor Who, haven't you notice they've mostly been using Movie or TV score as their BGM, this season which have already included riffs from Pacific Rim (Ramin Djawadi), Marvel's The Avengers (Alan Silvestri), Now You See Me (Brian Tyler), Kingsman: The Secret Service (Henry Jackman), Pirates of the Caribbean (Hans Zimmer or Klaus Badelt) (one of them), among others which I can't really recall right now.

Pirates is an upbeat and exciting theme. Doctor Who just sounds totally random XD

This is the common practice in Chinese variety shows/ Reality tv shows, not just TAR China.

Greetings everyone! Live from Mexico (and not Canada, which was RIGHT THERE I MEAN COME ON), we are down to our final three teams.



Here's the usual. The two Roadblock prompts, as well as the name of the market where the eating task took place.

Also, I believe that Team Melody's penalty was because they moved too far apart from one another, but can someone just confirm that?

Thanks! One leg to go!

Even with only 4 teams, this was a much better Mexico City Leg than TAR28's  :hearts:

Some teams really watch the original TAR US before they came on this version  :ascared
Guo Jingjing & Huo Qigang can even correctly stated the high-sky dancing was a fast-forward in TAR US, which was held on Season 3, 14 years ago  :ascared

Never expected teams to be able to do so  :luvya:

Was already rooting for Kenneth/Jingjing for hometown reasons, but this proves I pick my favourites right!

Quote
Kenneth: I think this was just a Speed Bump in the American version.
Jingjing: *Fast Forward.
Kenneth: Fast Forward?! (to camera) How come it's a Roadblock now when the Americans only had it as a Fast Forward?!

Yep, the penalty was Melody and Vanness being too far from each other (juxtaposed with other teams saying they had to stay close).

What a great finish (with my favorite team already out, my second favorite one got to bag this one.  :conf:), with S4 announced at the end of it and an after the race special announced for next week.

Just a quick edit to add the the After the Race which is already taped was hoated hy Jin Xing.

I loved that the Memory Task wasn't just a simple switchback, there was an awesome level of added difficulty on it, that wasn't on the original version.
I took some notes while watching, GB will still need help with the task titles, but here are all the locations:

- Praia de Copacabana - Start of the Leg
- Bairro do Vidigal - Barbecue Challenge RI
- Praia de Ipanema - TAR27 switchback with the FutiVolei RI (that's how we write it down here, in case you're wondering, should it be FootVoley?? in English) Task
- Praia Vermelha - That was a switchback also, wasn't it? Water Ski RB, just can't remember what season.
- Escadaria Selaron (+ streets of Lapa) - Let's Samba RI
- Praia do Flamengo - Memory Task and Finish Line
-
