Accidentally leaked by Finnish broadcaster Nelonen, TAR Finland is happening and filming this summer for a fall release. Celebrity cast. "Around the world" route.

Would not have guessed Finland as the next country to make its own version of TAR, but I'm excited nonetheless.

It's always very exciting to see the birth of a new TAR franchise! Still waiting for TAR UK, TAR NZ & TAR SA...

Back to the topic at hand, I'm very excited to see how this Race unfolds via the RFF Detective Team in the coming months! Can we safely assume that TAR Finland is going to be broadcasted in Finnish, not English?

One wonders whether the routing will emulate TAR Norge in focusing on two continents per season, e.g. Asia/Oceania for TARN1, then Africa/South-America for TARN2.

A new version, awesome!

Hopefully the host is better than the guy from Norway. I've never seen the seasons, but apparently he narrated everything.

On the contrary, Hr. (Herre) Freddy dos Santos was almost as good as Jon Montgomery; ergo, the prospective Finn can look to both for inspiration rather than either Aussie.

He narrated EVERYTHING.

It would go like... "We're really far behind, and we need to catch up!" ...Freddy: "Kari & Bjorn are really far behind and need to catch up!"

Pretty sure Finland is too small to do an all-domestic route, then again, they did TAR Ecuador.

If the Norwegian edition serves as the template, then expect both the Starting Line as well as the Finale to be in/around the Helsinki area (c.f. Oslo).

The narrating was SO ANNOYING  :groan: :groan:

So pleasantly surprised that Finland is making their own version of The Amazing Race. If they have taken inspiration from TAR Norge and TAR Australia, I hope they are implementing of the good things from both versions, like Handicap (TAR Norge) and the destinations (TAR Australia 1-4 and 6) etc.

Freddy dos Santos at his worst was/is still superior to Grant Bowler and Beau Ryan at their bests.

Anyhow, the acronym for the newest nation in the franchise should be TAR:S (Suomi) to distinguish it from the one-off French version.

According to Google Translate, the Starting Line will unsurprisingly be in Helsinki.

30,000 Euros sounds like a pretty paltry prize if you ask me. I do suppose the contestants are going to be "celebrities", who don't really need the money (I assume they're going to be paid quite handsomely to participate in the Race, in lieu of the "lost of earnings" they may have, because they are participating in the Race)

Is the 30,000 Euros going to be donated to the charity of the winner team's choice? ???

They'll probably get paid for participating in the Race. In Norway, celebrities get paid for participating in reality shows.
Yes, 30 000 euros sounds like a pretty paltry prize, but I think they don't have to pay taxes for those prize moneys.
