    I agree that they should be harder, but not too hard such that it destroys a team completely like the first ever Speed Bump did to poor Kynt & Vyxsin.


    It would be nice to have more Fast Forwards on the race as TAR20 did. A minimum of three per race.

    The first speed bump didn't cripple them it was doing Yoga they even got to the yield before Nate/Jenn.When I said speed bumps should be harder that was one of the ones I thought was much to easy.


    Agree. But any more then three I think is to much. 2 or 3 is good I think.


    U-turns should only be on legs with catch-up-points, unlike with Lorena/Jason.

    Agree.


    The first leg should NOT be a non-elimination leg.

    The hazard should be used again

    Agree, but it should be easier or as hard as a Speed Bump as bad luck could get you there.


    There should never be another final 3 non-elimination leg.

    Agree.


    There should never be back to back non-elimination legs.

    Agree.


    They should revert back to the "marked for elimination" idea.

    Disagree - I'm not a big fan of the Marked for Elimination, personally. I think that twist worked well in an early race NEL with lots of teams there, but when you have a Final Four/Five NEL, that penalty doesn't really work for me.


    (I'd also disagree with the other statements that there should never be back to back NELs - when this occurs once in a blue moon, it comes as a major shock which is nice, as long as there is a lengthy gap between this occurring. As for Final 3 NELs, it is a bit anticlimactic, but I wonder if somebody could survive the Speed Bump on the finale and come back to win?)


    After all the Indonesia spam over the last few seasons, perhaps they should avoid Absolutely going to that place for 18 seasons like they did in the first 18 seasons, lol.

    Agree


    Meghan and Cheyne and Rachel and Dave were the most predictable winners.

    Agree/Disagree I agree with Rachel/Dave after a few episodes it was clear as for Meghan/Cheyne I think that was in question until the end yeah they were the best but the best doesn't always win as with Colin/Christie, Rob/Amber, Eric/Jeremy and Andy/Tommy.


    Colin/Christie, Rob/Amber, Eric/Jeremy andAndy/Tommyare the most deserving(I don't mean personality)teams not to win

    Colin & Christie I'd agree with. Despite my hate for them, they proably would have won or at least come close if the flight mishaps didn't happen. Rob & Amber I agree/disagree with. They didn't win quite as many legs but were nonetheless strong. I don't agree with Eric & Jeremy since they blew the lead of their own accord. Completely agree with Andy & Tommy who were very very unlucky.


    The quality of casting (with some notable exceptions) has been going gradually downhill for a few years now.

    Agree. Too many pseudo-celebrities.



    There should be a season where returning competitors team up with a new person instead of the person the ran the race with the last time. i.e. Jaymes running the race with his father instead of James again.

    Agree/Disagree - it sounds like a great concept in theory, but when executing it, it might not play out that way, and it's hard to beat the original team formula.


    The TAR23 cast does not look exciting at first glance.

    Jet and Cord were much more interesting the first time around.

    Agree/Disagree I don't think they we're that interesting the first time around so didn't see much difference.


    As for the previous question I think Boston Strong, Tim/Marie and LA Girls could be interesting and I hope The baseball wife's aren't like the football wife's from season 4.


    Which brings me to my question Season 4 is the worst season with the worst winners

    Disagree. Season 16 was a way worse season with way worse winners, although season 4 does rank near the bottom for me.

    Season 24 should feature legs designed by the fans.

    Disagree. It would be such a cool concept, but then again it would be too hard to get it to work.


    There should be a challenge halfway through a season where one previously eliminated team can return to the game.

    Agree but I don't see how that would work.


    TBC Legs should never be used.

    Disagree-Maybe once every 5 seasons?


    There should be a fast forward on almost every leg, but it should be really difficult (like drinking pig blood) or something.

    Disagree -that might give weak teams a chance to stick around. And I don't think drinking pigs blood is that hard either you can drink disgusting stuff or you can't.


    Memory tasks are the best tasks.
