Seriously? You guys have a problem with the theme? I don't see. 

They are doing this to bring on new viewers because these people are famous and have thousands maybe millions of followers. Some of them probably don't even watch TAR but if they know they are on there they will watch which could bring the show out of its 5-6 million viewers each week to like 7-8. They are even live streaming the beginning of the race tonight and having the contestants tweet about being on the show. I like it. This seasons cast sucks so hoping this one will be interesting.

They are basically trashing it up, so  I take issue.  I don't watch youtube "celebrities" on youtube. I sure as hell am not going to watch an entire series devoted to them. The two youtubers last time were bad enough. 

I've watched since day one and it's sad to see this once Emmy award winning show  sink to this new low.

 

RIP TAR 2001-2015

Well damn. 

Can I still make a thread about it when it begins though? Lmao

Go for it. Wink

I don't agree with putting them all in the same bunch. And out of the past contestants that were youtube famous I can only recall Joey being annoying. Meghan was nice, Kevin with the father (s17) was an interesting team. I'm pretty sure Kym from Kym & Alli was making fitness related youtube videos.


Kevin i enjoyed, kym i loved but fitness videos aren't the same as stupid YouTube videos of people walking around with a camera and acting obnoxious. I DESPISE Tyler Oakley, and I hate thefact him and other annoying people like him are on the face. These people are probably not even fans of the race that is what bugs me, at least with blind dates they could have had people who applied, this time most of th cast is probably recuits.

Watched the Finale I didn't thik it was the great compared to previous years. LIke the pit stop was basically at the final task. And they both didn't need to do an individual task only one person did which it wasn't hard. I didn't think any of the tasks were difficult.

Agreed. Very boring and lackluster finale. The season as a whole was pretty boring. I think I completely lost my interest for the show, especially with next season being vine/youtube stars.

Yeah like it used to be more exciting. The detours and stuff were more exciting and intense. LIke When they had to rockclimb over the ocean on that one episode or when the cowboys had to swim to their boat super far away because they forgot something. A 5 yearold could have done these missions on the amazing race. Even the surf board one from last year was kinda hard. 

Can someone PM me who won? I stopped watching when Josh and Tanner got eliminated (at least I think they did, right after the episode where they came last during the NEL?)

I actually thought the final was really good task wise compared to the rest of the season. I can't recall when they had so many tasks in a final leg.

They had the flashy task, which contained a memory task.

The physical task, which also contained a memory task.

The skill-based task, also with a memory task.

So they basically had 6 tasks. 5 of which allowed the order to be mixed up. I'd say that's pretty good.

Not like season 24 where it was like: Flashy task, screw on the lightbulbs, parachute to the pitstop

my biggest thing was they both didn't need to complete road blocks. And the memory ones werent hard even though it was 2. Everyone on the show studies basically the whole plane ride to the us before the final (obviously not paparazzi ) so I like the ones that make it harder, like when they had to go in that ball pit and search for the countries on a global ball. Or when they had the container yard and they needed to search based on the numbers . It makes the memory ones harder especially now that people study and take notes way more then before. Even the hello and goodbye flags in order of countries were a good one. They should ultimately stop letting the teams take notes overall but hey I am not a producer

That was hands down the best task ever on TAR imo.

I mean, they could try, but the cameras are not on the teams 24/7 (pitstops) so I don't think you could prevent taking notes. But I did appreciate the fact that at least on the second memory task the clue explicitly stated that you are not allowed to use notes for this.

I want to see Victoria from BB on this Smile 

lol

I loved when they had to get dolls if the person who greeted them at each pitstop. But containers was amazing

I'm kinda bummed Justin and Dianna didn't win. I think they were more deserving of the price compared to Joey and Kelsey. 

TAR is just too much chance. Like you go from being first place 5 times to losing the last leg over a cab. Like kinda annoying, but it's the game I guess. 

I think the final task every season should be the hay bales  roadblock.  Wink

 

I thought this season was just ok. Justin and Dianne dominated and it's too bad they lost because of a cab.  I've already written off next season as a total loss and probably the final season of the show.

Bahahaha OMG the hay bails!!! If I had to do that task I would die like I am so not patient. I will always remember when the globteotters got it on like the 2nd or 3rd try. (At least I believe it was them, during all stars) 

They need to do a second chance with people they got ultimately screwed. They can have the rockers who had their cab driver steal their passports in Russia, Jeff and Jordan who had there cab driver almost get taken away and killed by their cab driver in the middle of nowhere, and then the Clark county guys who were suppose to be on all stars but then one of them got a pantisitis or whatever the day before the race started so he couldn't compete

That is one of my favorite things about the show... as long as you aren't eliminated you have a chance, and frankly I found Justin unbearably arrogant, annoying as hell and the biggest drama queen ever (yes, including Rachel Rielly)... you know the song Smile (Lily Allen) that's how I feel about him... when I see you cry, I go ahead and smile...

I am soooo happy that they didn't win except that it means at some point he will be back to try again because as he said...he will never get over it (gag)

During their original season, 15. Sorry, OCD.

THIS. all of it

Yea, we get it you're a huge fan of TAR but he made it seem like the experience was worth nothing and all it mattered was the million. I'm happy he didn't win just because of the temper tantrum in the end. I can't handle sore losers.

Justin & Rachel would be a perfect obnoxious cry baby couple. I feel bad for Diana, I kinda liked her but he was just unbearable. I hate how he acted, you won 7 legs and a bunch f prizes, you'd think a huge fan of the show would love the whole experience but no its just tears. My favorite thing about them losing was that he was so confident because he lived in new York for 20 years.

Has anyone watched the Canadian and Asian versions of the Amazing Race? I watched them a few months back and thought they were pretty good. If you like the amazing race for going around the world, then you probably won't like it since they stay in that region with the exception of a few seasons.

TAR: Canada has produced some of the best seasons imo. Their tasks are really well built and are actually challenging.
