This no non-elimination legs rule must be in response to the last partial abortion series when certain teams were saved SO MANY TIMES. It was the worst.
I miss when they had a certain amount of money for each leg and when they made their own reservations on varying routes. Now it's just show up for a seat on vehicles leaving at these three times. This changed way before covid and took a lot of the fun out of it.

I foresee the female in the motivational speaking couple have a massive meltdown sooner than later. She was frantic and high-strung from the word GO and never seemed to level off. She can't keep up that level of intensity without snapping. I'm going to feel bad for her partner when she loses it and he has to deal with her crap.

No celebrities either. Rex has the potential to be highly obnoxious; I pray he has mellowed some with age.

So the motivational speakers showed up without one of the hats, and she told Phil that it fell off while she was running and she doesn't know where it is. Phil tells her she needs to go find it, and as they are walking away she says it is in the car and they go and find it in the car. Lie much.

[quote]That bitch daughter from the father/daughter team was almost as bad as the motivational speaker chick
I think she (Sharik) was actually much WORSE than the motivational speaker (Dom).
At least Dom is entertaining, but Sharik's petulant, über-negative, defeated behavior -- especially in light of her father's encouragement and optimism -- was infuriating. How many times did she drag her feet around that last challenge saying, "I just want to go home"??? And she even did it right in front of Phil (!), who practically had to wring her arm to stay.
Given how much effort Dom put in right up to the very end/how devastated she was at being eliminated, and how apathetic and reluctant Sharik was to even bother finishing the challenge, I would have loved to see Phil say, "You know what? Sorry, Linton, your daughter's proving she really doesn't deserve to be here anymore. You've both been eliminated. Congrats, Dom and Rich, you're back in!"

What’s the point of getting rid of non-elimination legs only to have a “mega-leg” where no one is eliminated after the first hour. It really kills any momentum the show had going to have to go two weeks until we check in with Phil at a Pit Stop.
After four episodes we’ve been to Germany, Austria, Italy & Italy. Not exactly the most wowing or unique places to showcase on TAR after all these years. The challenge have been decent though. I love the twins realizing that none of the challenges are really that hard if you read the directions and pay attention.
This isn’t the worst season of TAR- not by a long shot. It’s hard to compete with the nadirs of the blind date season or the social media “star” season (vine doesn’t even exist anymore!); this is kind of a middle-of-the-road season so far.
They need better destinations. Remember a few seasons back when they wen to the stunt film studio in Kazakhstan? That was fricking awesome. Africa, Asia & South America always seem to be more interesting than North America/Europe.
Survivor fired their longtime casting director a few seasons ago, and the show has been immensely better for it. TAR needs a casting shake up too.

I was excited for Jordan and a change of scenery (which truly was beautiful), but the challenges were very uninspired. You go to country the race has never visited before and you have walking around a patch of desert with metal detectors and standing there doing a slide puzzle? Not exactly compelling tv, even if Petra certainly is a stunning location.

On TAR: Canada's most recent season, which ended a couple of months ago, 3 teams contracted COVID (simultaneously) early in the race. All three were suddenly just gone and presumed to be off the show.
Several episodes/eliminations later, those 3 teams just-as-suddenly returned and had to complete a roadblock amongst themselves to see which 2 duos would rejoin the race.
I mention this because TAR may do the same thing -- temporarily sideline a team or two for COVID, but then let them compete to get back into the race later.

Luis is hot, hot, hot and seems to be having a blast. His wife also has a wonderful attitude about the challenges (she loves heights!). They are exactly who should be cast on the race. Kudos for finding them.
It’s painful watching Emily hobbling around in obvious pain. The twins have a great story, but they’re pretty dull.

Totally agree -- they are casting gold. Likeable, entertaining, fans of the show, and very easy to root for. Someone upthread said they're getting the "winner edit," and I agree with that, too.

r118, totally agree! Luis and Michelle remind me of my all time favorite team Kris and Jon from Season 6. Competitive but very kind to others and never got so mentally involved in the tasks that they couldn’t appreciate the travel aspect. I really hope Luis and Michelle win.

I'm just relieved the teams are not allowed to help each other as much as they were. That season where they all did the final tasks as a big team was very boring.
I also am one who really misses the "will they, won't they get flights" aspect of the show and the airport scenes- it's dull knowing they'll all get there.

Claire’s a lez. Derek’s a gay. Any other questions?

r121, after that season with those effeminate gay bitches Will and James from season 32 creating a clique to bully and eliminate other teams while helping each other with tasks, which was hugely unpopular with viewers, AR producers had to make sure that doesn’t happen again. Most of the AR related social media hated that season and those bitches.

I've driven a stick shift all my life and tha car confused me. It looked like there were two stick shifts?

How can you go on the Race without knowing how to both drive stick and swim? You'd also better be fine with heights. I'm amazed every year that there are always people who are not prepared.

That truck had two gear shifts and four pedals? Can someone explain?

Yes, what was up with the double gear boxes and four pedals!?

I’m rooting for Luis/Michelle and the Sisters. I like Derek but I REALLY don’t want Claire to win. She’s such a fucking Karen.

I'm just curious - is it normal not to learn how to swim in the USA? Over here (NZ) you learn to swim at primary school and everyone has to do it. We are on islands though, but I am wondering if that's not a thing there?
|by Anonymous||reply 131||December 2, 2022 6:30 AM|
Learning to swim is completely voluntary in the US and is up to the individual family and usually accomplished by paying for lessons at a public swimming pool. Many people don't do it or ever learn to swim.

People who grew up poor and/or in cities tend not to learn to swim. Blacks generally are not swimmers.

Im assuming the second "gear shift" actually changes it from 4-wheel drive to 2.

What's more surprising is didn't David say that his father is a fisherman? You might think he'd be a little more comfy in the water.
I hope the twins or Luis/Michelle win. Please not Derek/Claire (mostly because of Claire).

Is it settled whether Derek is completely straight?

I congratulate one half of the winning team and that’s Derek. Fuck Karen!

I don't think Claire is completely straight either. Probably a manufactured relationship for CBS.

Did Claire and Derreck even interact in the BB house? I thought he and Chada were closer than Claire. This relationship came as a complete shock to me.

R133 Shut the fuck up! You can't simply answer a fucking question w/o being racist. Out of all of my Black friends, I think I am the only one who sucks at swimming.

I inadvertently spoiled myself with the winner, and now disappointed, can skip the finale. UGH at those two reality show brats splitting a million dollars by age 25.

Claire came out as pansexual on BB. I don’t know about Derek.

Derek does ping. That’s fine because I think he’s cute and would do him.

Pfffft. I wanted either of the other two teams to win and was bummed at the results. I was SO rooting for the twins when they got to that last challenge -- I thought maybe they could figure out the sequence faster and then somehow get out/get to the finish first.
It also seemed a bit like all the other contestants were more excited to see the twins and Luis/Michelle than Derek and Claire.
And I was really hoping for some motivational closing thoughts from Dom... but alas.

Yeah, this was pretty much the worst season of the show. They have got to figure out a way to let coming in second or third or fourth on a leg mean something, rather than have everyone start on equal footing at the start of every leg.
And no more fucking reality whores.
