Still no sightings.

Might not have started yet. We know they normally run their first leg in Israel, so there'd be scarce sightings there.

When Amazing Race sightings start popping up that aren't in Canada, it's probably them. I'm worried about if US 36 and Finland's inaugural season decide to start in the near future. Then we'll be really confused, lol

A particularly nightmarish scenario would be all the above filming at the same time as the Aussie Celebrity Edition.

So happy that we're back and that we're starting with Iceland.  :woohoo:

Finally! Filming is underway on a version that we know races around the world!  :lol: :funny:

So happy that we get to see Iceland! The two US visits were amazing and I'm sure Israel is going to do this wonderful country justice!

The Israelis have a trio of high bars to clear as raised by the Season 6/30/34 visits.

Will they visit Húsavík? And will they have "Play 'Jaja Ding Dong'!"-guy as a pit stop-greeter?

Having proud Spanish ancestry (my great-grandmother emigrated from Madrid back in the 40's), I'm super excited and pumped that they're heading to Malaga again! However, I do hope that they're not coping the exact same locations and tasks from Season 34. That would be pretty poor (and lazy!) from the producers!

I remember they copied a couple tasks last season, in the Netherlands they did the ditch vault and finding the small clue in a room full of clogs. But HaMerotz has their knack for coming up with better tasks than the Americans!

At least they chose one of the better tasks.

Instead of taking the opportunity to debut Portugal a.k.a. the continent's best used nation besides Denmark, hM9 instead gets stuck with Europe's worst country...again!

I'll take the time to respectively disagree - Spain is always welcome in my book!

Eh, Andalusia looks too similar to Tangier when they should've gone to Basque Country instead.

Now we found out that they've been to Morocco! Tangier in fact! Good to see a new country debuted on HaMerotz LaMillion!

In terms of Subsaharan destinations overdue for a visit, Mozambique > this lame retread.

What’s lame about Victoria Falls? It’s one of the most amazing places on the planet!

The Israelis visited it as recently as haMerotz 7 less than a half-decade ago; they should've gone somewhere fresher like Gorongosa National Park for a non-Anglophone safari leg followed by Maputo.

Ahhh Zambia! Victoria Falls is a beautiful location, but maybe it's now becoming an overused location, considering it's now been used in TAR US (x2), TAR Australia & HaMerotz LaMillion (x2)...

After TAR27 did the Zambia/Zimbabwe straddling leg at Victoria Falls, Israel and Australia both followed suit within the next couple years. So as a TAR destination, it already feels kinda milked for that reason. Hoping they went somewhere else if that's where they are.

The ruins of Great Zimbabwe would've been far superior paired with an urban leg in either Harare or Bulawayo.

Okay guys.

Can we please stay on topic yet  TRY to be at least somewhat happy with what we are getting?

I would like us to focus on the POSITIVE (like omg we have another season = JOY!)And quit with all the bitching.

Peach needs joy and happiness not whining  pretty please.

Last B/M/S I think.

I thought this thread was specifically so people can Bitch as much as they want without cluttering the other threads? 🤔

That's the theory, not that it doesn't stop some from 'cluttering the other threads'. But it's also a squeal thread, and that tends to be forgotten among the 'bitch and moan' on here sometimes.

Sounds like an excellent route to me - Israel, Iceland, Spain, Morocco and Zambia - very cool!
