    I thought I would create a topic on this, it seems interesting. Here you can rank all first legs of The Amazing Race best to worst, and if you want to give an explanation why that would be even better.



    1. TAR 6 (Grandivik, Iceland)


    2. TAR 3 (Mexico City, Mexico)


    3. TAR 7 (Cusco, Peru)


    4. TAR 5 (Montevideo, Uruguay)


    5. TAR 2 (Rio De Janeiro, Brazil)


    6. TAR 1 (Songwe, Zambia)


    7. TAR 15 (Tokyo, Japan)


    8. TAR 11 (Quito, Equador)


    9. TAR 18 (Sydney, Australia)


    10. TAR 12 (Ireland)


    11. TAR 9 (Sao Paulo, Brazil)


    12. TAR 10 (China)


    13. TAR 4 (Cortina, Italy)


    14. TAR 8 (Lancaster, PA)


    15. TAR 13


    16. TAR 20 (Argentina)


    17. TAR 14 (Switzerland)


    18. TAR 16 (Chile)


    19. TAR 21 (Shanghai, China)


    20. TAR 19 (Tapei, Taiwan)



    Have not seen the TAR 17 premiere so I can't judge. What are your thoughts?

    Where would TAR 22's premiere fall on your lists?

    I found it to be a pretty boring premiere despite all its hype. I do love TAR 22 though! (at least so far)

    I actually really loved it. It would rank relatively highly on my list although I'm not quite sure exactly where, at the moment.

    Looking at it now, as far as the best list of premiere legs go, the nominations are:



    TAR3, TAR5, TAR6, TAR7 and TAR15



    Honourable mentions are TAR2, TAR17 and TAR22

    I agree with all of those except TAR15. That would be a pretty good leg, but there are a couple of better ones in my opinion, namely TAR12 or TAR14.
