Just watched to see the Amazing Race representatives, (got no prior clue who the others are besides Enzo and Tyson, unfortunately), and it definitely gives off a Tough As Nails + Big Brother premise. I'm actually surprised none of the Tough As Nails contestants were cast for this show, but insisted on casting from Love Island. Their everyday-man physical strength and tight-knit collaboration would've been such a unique contrast and brought more attention to that series.

Love that idea Rachel. It would have made for a better show than using so many BB/Love Island players.

The location for the first task was this one: Ingeniero Huergo Av. 723. The building used to belong to one of phone companies operating in Buenos Aires and it was left empty some years ago.

Also notice that the entrance of the building looks similar to the one where the competitors arrive at the beginning of the episode.

I also recognized another location presented at the beginning of the episode: the Presidente Perón Stadium, home of the Racing Club soccer team, in the city of Avellaneda, on the province of Buenos Aires; that is located only 15 minutes distance from the location of the first task.

Pretty good episode and I liked how they explained everyone's backstory incase people didn't watch any of the four feeder shows.  Definitely refreshing so far, I've been finding the MTV main series to be getting pretty stale for the past 2-3 seasons.

I'm really liking how they're filming in a lot of urban areas this season tbh! its been a while since the main series has really done something like this

The white tower in the background is the Space Tower, located in the Parque de la Ciudad of the city of Buenos Aires. In that area were hosted the 2018 Summer Youth Olympics.
