Not a big fan of the casting this season.

The producers went too political correct with their choices, ensuring each team must tick off a diversity box.

So many racers are overweight and are struggling to move around. Even the mature husband and wife team that is doing well. They won't last long with that limp for the wifey. Hopefully i'm proved wrong.

Sikh team look like a clear standout.

Some questionable choices for challenges. The motorcross was an unnecessary risk. It just takes one out of control racer to hit the gas accidently get hurled off the bike and break their neck. It almost happened.

The show is probably going to suck once the power couple get eliminated. I can't see any of the other teams arguing with each other which brings drama.

Im an episode behind, but since when has not getting to the check point without the backpack ever been a rule? I feel like on last season weren't there a few footraces where people dumped their bags?

The requirement for the backpacks was never a requirement and it is not the case on the US version. You only need your passport. So it is a dumb rule.

I still think there are too many teams (the US one starts with 11) and too many tasks in one leg.

There is no way those solar panels were clear. Joke of a task.

The power couple - Nolor's arrogance and inflated opinion of his intelligence is ridiculous. I can't believe they got the salvage......what a joke

Not sure I agree with the cousins coming back either.

Did anyone see the father and daughter? They seriously get no air time.

How are Team Deadly still going? I thought they got eliminated in the first round, did they get a Woke PC pass?

Who needs to go to different countries when you have teams from different countries? A Sudanese team, An Indian team, A South Australian team.

Yikes.

Brought back because another team quit. They should have tried to bring in one of the teams from the previous season that didn't get far as a twist. Or an entirely new team.

why does it bother you where the teams are from? They are actually all Australians arent they?

It doesn't really bother me although I think they go overboard with the diversity angle these days, it's more important to have competitive, interesting teams than teams that tick every diversity box.

The early seasons of TAR were the best when there was less focus on diversity and more focus on having interesting teams that could create drama.

I've only watched bits and pieces of it but from what I've seen I like the Indian guys the most, don't hate any teams but some of them are a bit dull.
