Today's episode was okay. The detour was balanced between something quick but physical and something that takes longer and requires skill. Didn't look too balanced when I saw
Show content
one side of the detour had the first 5 teams finish ahead, and the other side had the last 3 teams finish later. Ashleigh & Amanda having to switch detours and being stuck at the bottom was interesting to see, and it convinced me a bit in the balance between both detours. Lucky them they got an equalizer with the sign-up board for the following day, so that gap closed up to just 15 minutes.
I feel like the intersection and the hours of operation might've ruined the momentum of the episode, since 4 teams were on each boat that separated teams only 15 minutes apart. This is not new in TAR though. Equalizers just pop at random times, and for

Ashleigh & Amanda, this gave them a fighting chance.
I also didn't understand why it took

the teams on the first boat so long to finish the intersection. The editing didn't show if they had to go back after a failed attempt, or if they went back to read their clue, or what part they got stuck at. Editing focused more on showing boat 2 beating boat 1,
so that part confused me. Additionally, the intersection might have ruined the challenge of the sabotage. ??? (Can I take back me commending how I like TAR Australia's intersections from a week ago? 😅) The task at the sand dunes was challenging and it required good communication. I like how challenging that task was to split the teams apart.

Great to see

Ashleigh & Amanda's comeback after struggling with the detour. So many teams wanted to intersect with them, but they struggled with the detour, so it was just too bad that they got stuck with Holly & Dolor, who got lucky while just being comic reliefs as A&A pretty much did the intersection for the whole 4-person team. :funny: Interesting to see Holly & Dolor in 2nd place too! They really got lucky with the intersection, especially after finishing the detour in last.
Meanwhile, it was sad to see
Show content
Jordan & Violeta go, especially with a confusing intersection edit. If I had seen more of their struggle at the intersection, and their ARI performance that also had a rushed editing for the last 4-5 teams, maybe I would be less confused with the episode and feel less bad for the eliminated team and how their leg went? 😕 Given how they were hanging by a thread for 5 episodes in a row from Legs 3 to 7, it's good to see them make it this far, and now I wished they won the previous leg because they finished 2nd and were so close to earning that first class pass. :(

Still appreciate TAR being aired in the middle of a pandemic, but overall, this episode was just not it. The editing could've been improved at least. Maybe cutting out the intersection from the leg would've been fine too? ???

16 people fighting for their survival on the Eyre Peninsula. Where have I heard that before?

I didn't really see the Detour as that balanced but it evened out as it's main purpose was setting up the Intersection.
The Intersection really showed the pitfalls of a large number of teams working together.

And how Dolor can't tell Holly apart from a sea lion.  :funny:

The dunes task tested teams' communication well and nearly tripped up one team.

Jordan & Violetta were a fun team and they were just hitting their stride.

Episode Twelve Thoughts

This episode was easily the worst episode of the season, which is a real shame because this episode was set in such an amazing location! The Roll side of the Detour was pretty uninteresting to watch (playing bocce isn't a really exciting task?), but at least the Tuna Tossing Detour was was sort of entertaining? Meanwhile, the Intersection was also boring to watch and I don't know how the producers thought this task would make for good TV. Finally, the blindfolded flag-retrieving task was easily the best task of the leg, but once again, didn't make for entertaining viewing? And the Pit Stop location wasn't also very interesting as well, the beach looked pretty borin' I'm not gunna lie!  :lol: :funny:

All in all, the Adelaide leg was the best leg of the season so far this week! Interesting to see that we're going back to Queensland next week, so let's hope these episodes are more entertaining then the first time they went to Queensland!

I still feel the worst leg this season has been leg 5, with that very out of place Survivor-esque challenge at the top, that had us losing a very cool team.

I actually really enjoyed this leg. Structurally was a bit weird, as the detour performance, really only affected which team you get paired up with at the intersection.
Bocce was still funny watching the teams failing and getting piled up with ties. Definitely not a visual challenge.
I still find myself surprised to see the Super Sihks having trouble in the water. It would've been interesting, if the teams got mixed up after the intersection challenge, but it just didn't happen, with the four teams from boat 2, finishing the task before any teams from boat 1 were able to do so.
I also enjoyed the last navigation challenge to get the final pitstop clue, the only annoying part is, as Aleisha was the visual teamate in the task, there was no way from where she was standing that she would know that Chris didn't stick the flag inside the pot, the producers only telling them they had to redo that part at the end, was within the rules, but not cool.

Starting to hope Dolor will stick around for a longer while, he is just too funny to watch.

I'm impressed by how Amanda & Ashleigh are dominating this race. They are amazing.
Also, happy that Dolor is still in. He is so funny. They are improving, actually.

I hope the promo spoils that either MJ/Chelsea or Stan/Wayne are out.
I like them as people, just don't like them entering midway.
