Today's episode is pretty fun and amazing! They visited Coober Pedy, and the environment is so different compared to some of the earlier legs. (Forgot to mention the same thing for Alice Springs, which contributed to my liking for the previous episode.) I like Australia for its geographic diversity, and TAR Australia 5 is making me see this easily!

Detour was balanced, and it was between a physical task or searching through a labyrinth. Seeing

Holly & Dolor find the exit at one point, then going back to the labyrinth because they thought that wasn't it, was so frustrating to see, but their silent
confessional to go with it was funny. :funny:

The laser task in the church was interesting and challenging, since there was a 2-minute time limit per attempt.

The roadblock was simple but pretty interesting too.

Dwes painting the wrong letter was such a blooper, and I thought it would've warranted a penalty, but he accidentally helped another team for it, so that was good for Dolor.
:funny:

The golf task was also interesting, but what made it more interesting was the rule that they can catch another team's ball. The rule proved to be

the downfall of one team,
so it was interesting to watch, and the producers probably thought of this possibility to put it in the clue.

Glad to see

Chris & Aleisha grab their first win!
As for the eliminated team,

I'm glad they got to race an extra 8 legs after being eliminated on the first leg. They might have been unlucky with that first leg's search task, which got them eliminated, but they were lucky to have a team withdraw from the race to be brought back for a second chance!

Crazy to think that the last time TAR visited SA was during the last Coober Pedy leg on TAR 2 19 years ago.

The Above Detour was straightforward physical labor in the sun.
The harder part of the Below Detour seemed to be getting out.
Show content
To hilarious effect by Holly & Dolor.
The laser task was pretty tricky and set at a cool location.
The painting task was simple but several racers arms had to be burning with all that reaching.
Funny to see TAR turn into Holey Moley for the last task.

Show content
Chris & Aleisha finally became the brides and not the bridesmaids.

Dwes & Katherine certainly made the most of their second chance.

Great and fun leg. Lining up the teams and brining in stowaways does reminds me of other versions of TAR.
It's a shame that the espape room task is barely shown, kinda wished we had a few seconds of the teams actually reading the clue, and dealing with the challenge. It probably wasn't that hard, as it didn't affect placements.
Really enjoying the season so far. Still find it funny, that Holly and Dolor went from barely villain edit, to mostly joke team edit, as they have the making for a alpha team, they do believe they are themselves an alpha team, but the result ain't such. It's sad that the older teams were all knocked out even before this leg, and all these stoways, would have made them sticking around harder. As I'm reading througb other threads, we are not even half-way througn the season, so very happy that there is a lot more TAR content to look forward to in the next few weeks.

It barely did, but according to Amanda's Instagram, they made them do the Escape Room task at 1 AM and the slowest team took 3-4 hours to finish it. What a wake up call for the teams  :funny:

Episode Six Thoughts

I really enjoyed this episode! It payed a nice homage to TAR2. I enjoyed watching the Detour, though the Above side was a little boring to watch? The Below task was much more interesting and it was great to see Dolor stuff up a task yet again!  :lol: :funny:. Then we move onto the laser beam task, which was again a little boring to watch, but it was also interesting to see how the teams completed the task. The sign-painting Roadblock I really enjoyed, it was good to see the teams give back to the community and the sign is actually going to look really cool now! The golfing task (hello Holey Moley!) was a fun little task and certainly an easier task then TAR2's Detour! Finally, the Pit Stop would of been better inside the Underground Nest, but it was also a good local place!

Really looking forward to tonight's episode, it looks like it might be the best of the season so far! :)
