I love how in addition to being entirely invisible so far this episode that they're the only team they don't show doing the task

Well, this doesn’t make sense at all...

Interested to see whether the team that quits the race as per the promo for tomorrow is the twin models and Dwes and Katherine are allowed to race on in their place...because it doesn’t make sense given we have bonafide footage of the Cousins in later legs, yet they’ve been ‘eliminated’ tonight...

I just checked the spoiler threads, and while I'm sad about the eliminated team, seeing them in some other footage is so confusing and just threw me off completely???

With this season being all local, it's a good twist to have teams split up in 2 groups of 7, one group riding boats but taking longer to reach the cars, and then another group sprinting across the beach but taking a shorter time to reach the cars at the start of the race.

The detour was simple and fun, and the amount of tasks improved from last season, so I thought that part was really awesome!

I think my favorite part of the episode was
Show content
Jobelle & Rani arriving 11th and having a penalty but miraculously surviving it! While I was so glad that Jobelle & Rani survived their penalty, I wished Dwes & Kat could've gone further. :( Lowkey wish they casted more indigenous people too. It's pretty hard to let either team go,
but overall, this season had an amazing start, and I have a good feeling this season will be better than TAR Aus 4!

EVERYONE!

Since many cannot watch live  ANY COMMENTS ON TEAM ELIMINATED OR FUTURE SPOILERS MUST BE IN SPOILER TAGS !!!!

Or take to the Spoiler page instead.

Happy to have TAR back even in the midst of a pandemic.

The beach vs boat decision worked as a trap choice considering the slow boats.
The bombing task was a difficult start to the season, and it was relevant to local history.
The Detour was pure Australian.
The needle-in-a-haystack task at the sugar mill helped provide shakeup considering only four teams could perform the first task.
The toad task wasn't too hard, but it was a nice extra task that provided fun moments.

Liking the teams so far from the premiere. Though considering the number of teams, it's going to take some time to really get to know them.

Happy to Jobelle & Rani survive despite the penalty. Unfortunate though to see Dwes & Katherine go.

Not bad. For a domestic-based season, it's a welcome difference from Canada that they didn't pat themselves on the back for being Australian every 5-10 minutes, lol.

But 14 teams is too many people to get to know in an 1-hour show.

Jobelle & Rani got lucky with the penalty, but sad to lose Dwes & Katherine. They were one of the teams I liked from the first press.

Just watched it (Thanks to a facebook group)

WOWOWOW
Maybe I'm just happy to have some Amazing race haha
but I felt like there was more good, than bad.

The good:
- Most teams got a good presentation (I feel the parents were the only true invisible team, we got a little tiny bit from everybody else)
- Loved the starting line choice, was a great way to separate the teams right away
- That first task was fun, nothing groundbreaking. I'm surprise they didn't show more of Skye-Blue & Jake struggling because they went from 3 to like 8 or 9. Also I don't understand how the cowboy/gold coast girls got 3rd and 4th..., wasn't there like already 7 teams before them, so minus the first two who finished quickly, that still leaves 5 teams having a go at it before they even get a place.
- The detour also was ok, but for me it seems the beer was the quickest option. (If you get it on your first try)
- Love the toad task, gave us a little extra task

The bad:
- Too many teams for 1h10, I would have cut the premiere in 2, with bigger introduction of the teams because some teams were barely saw, and one was invisible.
- I didn't really like the luck task, well maybe if it would have been half luck and then skill. Because the Cowboys really got screwed there, and same for Sefa/Jess for that second part.
- Also, is it me of 30 minutes is a pretttttty small penalty for quitting a task? If they knew, I'm sure some teams would have not waited for their turn (because there was only 4 at a time)

So far my fave teams are:
- Super Sikhs
- Sefa/Jess
- Alex & Jack (I was sure they were going to be Alpha type, but they made me laugh)
- Malaan & Tina
- Dwes & Katherine
- Jobelle & Rani

I don't hate anyone yet, but I'm not a big fan of Dolor (He made me laugh until the pitstop where he was being an ass for no reason)

Something about that premiere that's interesting - take a look at the first clue.

We live to fight another day! We timed out on bombs away yesterday after exhausting all the attempts, served a penalty for that and we learned lots on our first leg. Always learning!

Jobelle & Rani actually didn't quit, they just got a penalty for taking too many attempts at the first task. Wonder why that was edited differently lol.

Episode One Thoughts

The premiere episode was a solid ep! Still loving Beau as a host, love that he brought the hugs back!

This is a fantastic diverse cast, something Channel 10 have done a great job with anyway. I do think having 14 teams is too much, obviously only we're one episode in, but there was some teams we saw virtually nothing of. Kinda makes me think they’re 100% not winning which is a bit of a concern from an edit standpoint.

I think we have two really great villain teams, much better than last season’s villains immediately I feel.

In terms of the boot, I was torn. Part of me felt happy that the superfan in Jobelle survived the leg, but I also felt very bad for the Kimberley team who I wanted to see do well, because they are such a unique team!

My favorite team so far is probably Sefa and Jessica, but also am enjoying the hilariousness that Alex & Jack are bringing to the Race!

What were the issues with the locations? The starting line was really cool, the hotel is a heritage listing, the sugar mill has its own section on the town’s Wikipedia page.

Also I would’ve switched Alex & Jack and Ashleigh & Amanda’s edit ratings.

Why do you have the Sikh guys so low?

I thought they had the most winners-esque edit of the entire episode

I thoroughly enjoyed the leg. Just felt we missed 3-4 teams in the edit. Shane & Deb and Malaan & Tina were particularly invisible. But a cool episode with good tasks and a beautiful location, I thought.

Really enjoyed the premiere.
It was mostly well paced, however with 14 teams, there were some of them that felt cut on the editing floor. Hopefully they will have their chance to shine.

Just really excited to have some fresh race content to watch.

Enjoyed the 1st separation route, is like the separate flight thing, we do get a lot in recent US seasons, but done very cleverly. There was some separation,  but boat teams was still able to catch up with during the task.
So there was a limit of tries to the bomb task, but it seemed that until that was reached, you could keep trying, so there was not swapping teams between tries (understable, due to set-up and harness), but it did made the teams placements for the entire mid-pack a bit confusing.
A great cast season, looking forward for the entire season, which will probably be our main TAR content for while.

I actually understood them getting timed out on that task, because that's what Beau told them at the pit stop.

Well i really enjoyed this first episode. The cast is marvelous and diverse.
I loved the final outcome of the episode as well. After all, they survived the penalty. It was pretty nice.
