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

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!

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.

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

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!

After looking at Yehuda’s instagram, are we even sure that Victoria Falls is confirmed? For all we know they could have done a safari leg.

Something worth noting is that as often as it’s been visited, no season has actually been to Lusaka, the capital city. Maybe they could be the first!

If this new sighting in Gangnam is them, this route's really looking like a mashup of modern US legs (except the 29 racers just had to find the place. Knowing HaMerotz's style of tasks, they probably had to dress like Psy and do the dance lol)

But South Korea is a nice choice. Hopefully they're circumnavigating!

Does anyone know if the Vietnamese government gives out film and/or travel subsidies?
It seems as if nearly every iteration of TAR has filmed there multiple times in the past several years. It's all but replaced Thailand as the go-to SEA country, with franchises planning for return visits despite seasons being filmed once per year (or even less often)

Since 2015:
TAR 29, 31, and the original 33
HaMerotz 5 and now 9
Australia 4 (after visiting in the inaugural season)
Canada 4

Queenstown is one of the best cities in the world! Hopefully they have an awesome, adventure-packed leg (it isn't called the adventure capital of the world for nothing!)

This would have to be the last country before the finale in Israel right?

We’re in the endgame now. Poetic to end in Queenstown. Glad there won’t be much overlap with Australia. Helps that they are on different continents. Even with the change in networks, 12 might conduct the finales similar where the teams find out the results after the show premieres to prevent spoilers.

Nope.  Only the route they want, but only the tasks they want there, and when those legs finally happen, they'll be in the wrong order, with the wrong host, and the wrong teams will be eliminated.

Outside of the US TAR. This is one of the best routes I've seen and to accomplish at a COVID-era. Props to the production.
Iceland, Spain, Austria, South Korea, New Zealand, Morocco, Azerbaijan, Vietnam and a speculated, Bulgaria, which I do hope so it does get visited.

Azerbaijan is a surprise and it's refreshing since were are seeing it in the summer, US S.20's visit was during the winter months, not really ideal for a coastal city like Baku.
I've seen the F1 Races there on TV and it is stunning.

Bulgaria, TAR Israel, making 1sts for the franchise, if confirmed, 1st ever visit added to the list (Bosnia & Herzegovina, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, Cuba).

Iceland, Spain, South Korea, New Zealand, Austria, Morocco, Vietnam - No need to elaborate, these are already gems.

On a different note: If TAR Israel can do this. I'm hoping the US version can to. I am waiting to be surprised. Glad Travel is up and about.

I think TARAUS's Cuba visit predated Israel's, IIRC.

But OMG THIS ROUTE. Wow. Undervisited countries with beautiful and distinctive locations, and no two countries with the same native language (Icelandic, Spanish, Korean, English/Maori, German, Arabic, Vietnamese, Azeri, and possibly Bulgarian - and really only 2 countries with the same region, with SK/Vietnam as Asia, even though SK is East Asia and Vietnam is Southeast Asia; similarly, Spain/Austria/Iceland are European Union but much more culturally different than, say, Austria/Germany, and Spain/Morocco are both Mediterranean but on different continents.)

Out of all the seasons of Hamerotz, this is the best route IMO. If they did visit Germany and Bulgaria, apart from being 1sts for the Israeli version, is Zambia even confirmed? that'd be even more stunning if those 3 were also on. If I was a Racer, this is a route I'm be extremely happy to run. Iceland, Spain, Austria, South Korea, New Zealand, Morocco, Azerbaijan, Vietnam.
