This leg felt reminiscent of TARC 7's Edmonton leg where the show made up for the lack of international travel by highlighting international culture.

The stadium search was essentially a needle-in-a-haystack task made easier with the map but harder with the time limit.
Part of me wonders if there was plans for a Germany leg considering this season planned to go to Europe and the Detour was two planned tasks. The dancing and eating tasks seemed balanced and are both TAR US classics.
The choir task brought back shades of the Edmonton Celebrate Detour and 30's Harare singing task.

Good on MJ & Chelsea for getting a hometown win.

First to essentially worst for Chris & Aleisha after a strong showing the past week.

Today's episode is pretty good! A search task at the beginning, and lots of performing later on. I would've picked the German sausages eating detour, and it was surprising yet interesting to see

the cowboys switch from the eating detour to the German dance detour.
The Swahili choir performance roadblock is challenging too! I've seen some of these tasks from other franchises, but it was still a pretty good leg overall! I enjoy seeing teams switch placements from doing well or poorly at performing challenges, or well, getting lost.

Meanwhile, there's something with TAR Australia's editing that makes some things predictable? This leg

focused so much on Chris & Aleisha and their story was highlighted for most of the episode. I like the story highlighting part, and I've seen it in the previous season too, but even the preview yesterday pretty much gave away them receiving the sabotage.

Great to see

the dancers grab their highest placement yet after their tumble
a couple legs back. It was also interesting to see

Holly & Dolor not at the back this time, the Super Sikhs being in the middle and being pretty much invisible for the episode, and the cowboys coming in last when they had top 3 placements in earlier legs.

As much as I think they made the right choice the first time (to sabotage the super sikh) I really don't think this was a smart choice for the girls.
1) I think the Cowboys are the better team (even if in the last 3 legs Chris & Aleisha were better)
2) This is the second time that they don't really play "fair" by choosing the salvage the last place team, you can bet that if they are in the losing team of that T-Junction, no one will bat an eye to vote them because they are the strongest, I wouldn't even feel bad for them because they don't showed twice now that they would be willing to sacrifice the strongest team.

I think the easiest thing to do when you win the First Class Pass is to choose the salvage the second-to last team, unless it's a super strong team and you are willing to take that shot!

Episode Eleven Thoughts

This episode was seriously the best in the TAR Australian franchise since TAR Australia 2 Leg 7! Firstly, the searching task at the Adelaide Oval (and how it was actually contested), was extremely fantastic to watch! The Slap or Search Detour in Hahndorf was an amazing task, but the sheer amount of German sausages the teams had to eat was borderline disgusting? Anyway, the Swahili singing Roadblock was an extremely random task, but also extremely relatable to Adelaide and made for fantastic entertainment and finally the Pit Stop at the Trinity Church was an amazing Pit Stop location and wrapped the best leg of 10's version so far!

Finally, I think MJ & Chelsea really need to drop the football references. It's hard for our international fans to keep up!  :lol: :funny:

It's a totally chaotic race to the end of today's leg, dancing, singing, eating - our teams are smashing it! #AmazingRaceAU
