Fly all the way from Montreal to the other side of the county to do a generic dance task that can be done anywhere? Never change Amazing Race Canada.

I must say I am not a huge fan of dance tasks especially when there are a lot of them but honestly this one looks like a lot of fun!!!

The live thread is pretty useless if you're not logged in because all the images attached are not visible.

Does anyone know where they started? They usually start around April 20 or so. Fernie was May 1 so where were they filming before then?

The first leg was in Montreal (starting line unknown, the leg was already well underway when we found them). The next one should be leg 4.

FYI, there've been at least two times that they began filming in early May instead: TARCAN1 and TARCAN3.

So thank God for production eschewing those precedents!

I am looking forward to Waterton Park because the one time I was there, it was dead. (It's a seasonal tourist village. That was in winter).

Still no sign of Monty, eh?

It'd be one heck of a massive blow to lose someone far superior in hosting skills than the overrated Arisa Cox.

Gonna take a wild guess and say the final 3 will consist of Team 2,3 and 9.

Hoping a FF team sneaks in and they don't get slaughtered back to back like season 6.

So relieved to see Jon back - kudos for finding the visual proof in the Pictonian Pudding of him a la Instagramme, rbnbadri!

After 3 years without being able to easily travel, it's nice to see TAR Australia, Canada and US making up for lost time all at once later this year. But this is the lamest route TARCan's ever done. Their intention was clearly to limit the amount of air travel, but as far as we know, they just criss-crossed the same 4 provinces. I'm in the Maritimes and we've had most restrictions lifted, they could have come via Quebec.

Of course the quality of the tasks and the cast makes a big difference. I watched BBCan 9 and Tychon was known for being a bit of a backstabber. After Dave & Irina's refreshing brand of villainy last season, I really hope he'll bring it to the Race.

When TARCAN7's route reverted to all-domestic without any warning whatsoever, the writing for TARCAN8 was already on the wall; just a relief that Jon retained his role after all was said and done.

The route is definitely underwhelming, especially after TARAUS5 just proved you can do an international route reaching six continents in 2022. If they really wanted, they could have visited a low risk European country for a leg or two but  :duno:

But hopefully the cast can deliver! Even though last season was also all in Canada, I still mostly enjoyed that season due to the cast. So hopefully the same can be said for this season too.

Hate the route but love the cast.

It looks interesting. Looks like 3 indigenous, 3 Asian and 6 Black contestants so far.

Plus another FF made the finale and an Indigenous team and Asian team made the finale.

Franca and Nella seem like fun. I honestly can't wait for this season!

Is this the first time Filipina F/F team made it to Final 4 in the world of TAR history?  :conf:

Pretty sure yes. If they win, it would be nice to have an FF team win again and an Asian team win again.

I'd rather have a villain team if it makes the season interesting rather than everyone being nice and boring like TARCAN5/6.
Sure.  A villain or villain team can be great if he, she, or they prove(s) entertaining and engaging.  A nice love-to-hate villain or villain team (like Dave & Irina) can make a season much more fun and interesting to watch, so much so that you even root for them a little.  However, there are also those villains and villain teams who can also be cringeworthy and highly uncomfortable to watch, too, like Jillian was (at least I thought so) and, as it's sounding like, Craig & Catherine could be.  All you'd root for seeing in those cases is seeing them lose, and lose badly and humiliatingly.

So even villains and villain teams can be double-edged swords.

So this'll be the finish line. Pretty nice they could rent it. TARUS has had several stadium finish lines, this is Canada's first.

Yeah! I'd like to correct all of you about the tagalog words so we can describe them easily:

Filipina / Pinay = women in the Philippines
Filipino / Pinoy = men in the Philippines

North American TAR 1, Oceanian TAR 0.

oookay? FilipinO is also gender neutral? And can be used to describe more than just people?

But, if I understand your question correctly, you asked if this was the first time a "Filipina F/F" team made it to the Final 4 of any TAR in the world in its history. And I replied saying that other than obviously TAR Philippines which featured Filipino teams (MM, FF, MF) who of course made it to the Final 4, there was a Filipino all-female team who

on season 5 of The Amazing Race Asia.

TAR Asia 4 also had Jess & Lani, who represented the Philippines and reached the Final 4, though both were born in Australia and lived in the Philippines. But only Lani is of Filipino descent. Jess was not ethnically Filipino, I believe.

Start line: Unknown atm (Possible sighting in Mont Tremblant, Quebec)
So the route is

Leg 1: Quebec
Leg 2: Alberta
Leg 3: BC
Leg 4: Alberta
Leg 5: BC
Leg 6: Ontario
Leg 7: Ontario
Leg 8: Ontario/Quebec
Leg 9: ????
Leg 10: Ontario
Leg 11: British Columbia.

I'm fine with a domestic route but this sucks.  Not only is it just four provinces, they are the four most over-used provinces in the show!  Not to mention the constant criss-crossing of the country.  They could have at least done 6 provinces with two legs each.
