The premiere was decent

Becca & Floyd :love: I like Vanick and Ashton and the All Female team too. I liked the Asians, sad to see them eliminated first (but lol @ the only all ethnic team getting booted first, you can't make this up :joker:)

It was okay, I feel the editing was all over the place, they had so much to pack into 42 mins, it really should have been a longer episode.

I dont have a favourites yet, I am interested in the Vanck and Ashton team as they are so different, it has potential to be a trainwreck, I can see her all ready getting the super bitch edit and Hayley 2.0

Never did mind the twist. Self navigation is always needed so hope that sets a trend for the season. The cast might be ok, early to say, though it's mainly the usual photogenic types.

But it was just a detour and that was it.

And an express pass just given randomly, not even earned? What?!

And a team gets penalised TWO hours because it's dark, that decided things right there. Normally I'm sure that kind of thing is more half an hour to one hour. I'm not sure how many canoe races two hours represented but it must have been more than they would have had to do.

Team 'fun' look very forced and gimmicky. Preferred the last placed team that were forced to take the penalty.

#TeamFun :lovedup:
I thought it was a great show
I was a bit worried cos I didnt like the blinddates series, but this was good imo.

Team Fun now revealed as team angry. Also the u-turn before the detour (decided by taxis) screwed over a competent team who finished the easier side of the detour very quickly but stumbled over the more difficult one (which most of them avoided doing).

I stopped watching this season after episode 2. It really annoyed me and seemed really unfair.

The female team were 'rewarded' for both not being able to pick their partner which is what 'Phil' said. Their reward was that they'd be taken straight to the airport.

This 'reward' put them on the second plane out in the first leg, and because of this 'reward' they were at the back of the pack throughout. It resulted in the next leg them being on the last plane out with no other teams. This resulted in their exit, despite managing to catchup with one of the other teams.

I don't see how it was a 'reward' to automatically be put at the back of the pack in the first episode. It's not like they had a choice, this reward ended their race, and it was out of their own control. They should have instead just put them on the first flight

All the entertaining teams have been eliminated, only ones left I'm rooting for are Becca and Floyd

I won't be sad when this show is cancelled after this season, although I would like a special edition for a 30th and final season

I mean, every team is delivering in their own ways, even Matt and Redmond, but Brooke is pretty much the modern day Flo soooooo....... yeah this season's actually pretty great so far!

Well since I'm apparently the only one watching this treasure of a season let me continue talking to myself. LoLo's CPN breakout and them getting a rich family to take them to the Roadblock was easily the [non-Brooke] highlight of the episode :love:

I'd be totally content with another random strangers paired up season again, I think? This season's fantastic and as skeptical as I initially was about the twist, I think one good thing is that it's forcing the editing team to focus on the relationships between teammates and not just pigeonholing people into their slots by occupation ("the cowboys" or "the Globetrotters" or "the snowboarders" or "the boarder patrol agents" et cetera et cetera)

Yeah definitely, ending on a fantastic all-star season would be the right way to go about it. We need Brooke & Claire back <3

I haven't really enjoyed a season of TAR fully since 26 (the Blind Date season) if I'm being completely honest, I feel like the casting choices have become blander and duller every year. They need to find more modern-day gems again like Shelley & Nici, Blair & Hayley etc. that are both entertaining and rootable, and can last long enough to ensure the season quality does not suck.

I can't decide which team I'd bring back for All-Stars: Brooke & Scott or Team Fun

I think I'm the only person not really mourning the loss of ~Team Fun~ bc they weren't all that to me :shrug: especially when we still have these gems left in the race...

My favorite part about the second episode was that literally the only thing Brooke had to do was bike through Vietnam and it led to **** like this :joker:

Boo. No point watching anymore. I get that they're entertaining but watching ***** like Brooke and Scott win a mil is distressing. Dont like the boys, and I barely know the other two couples.

I 100% agree with this. I give each season a shot but haven't finished a season since the blind date season.

20 minutes into the penultimate episode and Brooke continues to be the best casting choice in *YEARS*

"Make your way to the Whatever Nationals Arts and Cultural Center"
"Don't say what we're doing out loud, they don't follow directions" *Tara and Joey are literally standing next to them*
"Oh no Scott! You did it wrong already" "Why?" "Because they're laughing at you so you did it wrong :rolleyes:"

Macie Lightfoot
26-05-2017, 03:48 AM
oh my god and then the Street Fighter Roadblock is amazing for Scott being Scott, London button mashing, and Tara being COMPLETELY clueless...

"Did I get it? Is that me?"
"She's got a zero percent."
"Did I win?" *gets slammed into a train* :joker:

Macie Lightfoot
26-05-2017, 04:08 AM
k so after Tara and Joey being awful in Leg 9 re: Brooke and Scot and now Tara and Joey being awful this leg re: video games I am definitely *NOT* a fan. At least we have Brooke and Scott AND LoLo in the final leg so there's a 67% chance we get great winners :3

Hayden
26-05-2017, 11:11 AM
Thank god the douche bros were eliminated before the finale

Hopefully Brooke & Scott win, if not them then Logan & London

Joey was a mess @ how bitter he was being to the gamer

Scott being a Chun-Li main <3

Tara & Joey were vile at that final Roadblock, Joey especially. I get that it's the pressure of the whole environment, but they wouldn't have reacted to that if the task had been almost *anything* other than a video game (Also, I found Tara's comment about being too busy being in the army to play video games quite amusing, given every male in South Korea has to do 1 year mandatory military service).

Brooke & Scott for the win, it's Flo & Zach 2.0!

I still think the season was pretty underwhelming but they're definitely one of my favourite winning teams.

Okay I take this back, I'm now 9 episodes in and this season is brilliant. Easily the best season since 25, and is genuinely one of the best seasons of the whole show. Brooke and Scott have me dying with laughter its amazing. Also Vanck and Ashton were brilliant together and was a great pairing. Even team fun are providing even if they are a bit OTT.

After a rewatch this season has gone up in my rankings :love: I still think it has its flaws and the editing wasn't the best BUT there were some great individual stars and Brooke & Scott (moreso Brooke) are top tier TAR contestants <3

Of the stranger seasons I still prefer the Blind Date one but this one was pretty enjoyable overall too!

The fact most of the cast worked for the police or were from the army :skull:

Brooke vs the ladle was one of the best moments from the season, people helping her and she was still freaking out ssks then she promised not to U-Turn Liz & Michael and she did!
