    Disagree - they didn't violate any rules of the race, so I don't believe they deserve a penalty, even though I completely agree that it was a despeicable move.



    Since Unfinished Business, TAR20 has had the best cast of seasons 19-21.

    agree
    (there aren't necessarily rules against it. But I remember in season 6 when Don and Mary Jean were given a 30 minute penalty for accidentally taking Adam and Rebecca's car and placing them at a disadvantage and Mark and Michael were given a penalty for tampering with some air pumps on a Roadblock. So what made that any different :-) This has been one of the worst seasons with bad cast, bad task and bad locations

    Agree - that was definitely true, but I sure hope it changes with Europe!


    (Actually I haven't rheally thought about that - teams have been penalised for slowing down another team in other ways, so I think you have a point there!)


    They need to completely bypass Asia for just one season (they've never ever missed Asia, whereas we sometiems have to wait 5 seasons just to see Africa).

    Agree.


    And if they cannot make a race without Asia, then at least they should go for Asia Minor

    Completely and definitely agree.


    Even with a great route, a season won't be memorable without a good cast.

    agree.
    Even though Abbie and Ryan won't get the 2 million, they should get double the prize money for a 5th place win

    I guess I'd have to agree on that.


    If they do another 'Unfinished Business' type of season/race, then Amy & Daniel, James & Abba and/ror Abbie & Ryan should be included as the TAR21 representateives.

    Agree/Disagree. Even though nearly everything in TAR 21 is so bad (even the cast), those teams do deserve a second shot. As much as I loved Amy & Daniel, it was kinda their fault for not getting a new taxi any sooner.

    TAR needs to cast more parent/child teams..

    Unfortunately, I have to Disagree - one parent/child team per season is plenty (although you have a point since there were not any on TAR21 or TAR20) but I think the four parent child teams from TAR18 is sorta compensated by the lack of them in the last couple of seasons. Nonetheless, I am happy with one per season, but we seriously need one to win soon!


    On that note, we need a parent/child team to win soon!

    Agree (and I want it to be me and my daughter, Sara :-D )
    It would be cool for TAR to do like Survivor--allow a team or two to return and race with new players

    I will Agree to it because all the old teams are tons better than anyone new they can find, but I would prefer a completely All-Star season.


    (Would love to see you win the race, mstheresa! )


    They should do more Switchbacks to some great old challenges.

    definitely agree with that


    And they could also use some creativity in re-making those switch-back challenges, e.g. the oroginal super scary Ray and Deana's FF could make a HUGELY scary roadblock, etc.

    agree.e On one hand, the "meatblock" would not be a good switchback because of task but would at the same time because of the drama (3 of 9 teams refusing to complete it and taking a penalty

    Agree/SDisagree - personally, i liked the task and the drama, so I would love that for a Switchback!


    Another great Switchback would be the Basket Boats/Bikes from Vietnam on TAR3.

    Nope, it is from the leg after that - the one where Flo had one of her biggest meltdowns on. Basket Boats was those circular boats that they had to paddle (in the end Zach found a local to paddle for Flo ) and Basket Bikes was those huge bicycle things with weird spiky stuff on it that they had to ride.

    Agree, that was a good one, and I'd like it to make a come back.


    Same is true for TAR18 challenge during Leg1 where teams had to successfully cross castle's moat in a coracle (that round shape boat like thingy)

    Agree - I think you meant TAR17, but I know which one you are talking about, even though I would prefer the watermelon catapult personally.


    Another good one would be the locks task in Xian on TAR6.

    Agree. I think Hayden would have been better at that task if she hadnt been so stressed out because of the taxi problems

    Agreed.

    It was dumb for Jessica & John (John specifically) to not use the Express Pass on Leg 4 of TAR 22.
