7:30pm Monday on 10.
Up to date.
Right here’s an concept. Shoot a ‘regular’ season with x-number of groups, give the profitable group $250k however – shock twist! – the highest three groups get to race on to begin a brand new race with one other x-number of groups, making a second season shot again to again. And with the added suspense of the query : May one group win it twice in a row…or may the 2nd or third placers actually drive by means of to take a win in any case? Wait one other couple of months for the subsequent season to search out out!
David Knox has my permission to move my contact particulars to the TARA producers. 😉
40 contestants is ridiculous. Absolutely higher to separate it in to 2 collection with 10 pairs in every.
and never one sizzling man within the combine
Being a superfan of The Wonderful Race, I’m actually excited for Monday! Can it hurry up and get right here?? In my view, the extra groups the merrier, as a result of it means we’ll get extra episodes then regular!
3×90 min episodes per week, no thanks!
No point out of Scott Tweedie being the substitute host for Beau?
Good level… I feel he stepped in for a shoot or two.
I hope the groups aren’t as silly because the commercials are making them look.
Positive, 20 groups is lots however 10’s TARA has delivered on feel and look of the present so I’m in for the long term. Nice casting, too!
Yeah a fantastic illustration of latest Australia.
I learn 20 groups and counted 20 folks within the photograph, then I scrolled down and noticed the 20 groups.
Simply an FYI for 10, after we watch TAR we wish to study the characters by watching them race and work together. I discover 1 groups an affordable variety of 10 episodes. I’m not positive how I’ll join with 20 groups or deal with 3 episodes per week and if my calculations are appropriate, you would wish 6-7 weeks to get by means of all these eliminations if there aren’t too many non-elimination legs….
I’ve added in a second group photograph. I think in episode 2 they arrive.
I consider there may be two beginning strains with ten groups at one beginning line in Sydney and one other ten at a second beginning line in Melbourne, similiar to how the fourth and fifth seasons of HaMerotz LaMillion (the Israeli verison of The Wonderful Race) started. The 2 teams will meet on the second leg, which I consider would be the third episode.
I feel they’ve ticked the entire variety tick containers that exist however I might be mistaken ….. saying that sure lastly variety in a present and never simply in a single couple (on this case)
It’s truly been very various for fairly a while, pre pandemic.
20 groups is completely ridiculous, I extremely doubt I’ll be watching now. It’ll be approach too many episodes to cull that many groups.
And simply too many to know and sustain with
