The teams travel from their Pit Stop at the Blue Lagoon in Iceland over 1,000 miles to Oslo, Norway. Once there, they travel to a ski jump where they find themselves facing a Roadblock. In this Roadblock one team member must perform an "Olympian" feat --- sliding down a long zip-line. They then visit a Viking Village where they stay the night. In the morning, the teams split up into two groups of their choice and then compete to paddle boats across the lake. One team makes a critical mistake. At the Detour, the teams must choose between Endurance or Accuracy. Endurance in involves rollerblading one and three quarter miles, while Accuracy involves participating in three grueling challenges. Many teams initially choose Endurance and then opt to do Accuracy instead. Later, the critical mistake comes back to bite the team that made it --- but the thirty minute time penalty might not be enough to cause their elimination.

The teams continue from their Pit Stop in Budapest, Hungary, where they receive a clue telling them to find the area's largest wine cast.

After it opens, two teams opt to try for a Fast Forward, which one eventually claiming it and scoring a special helicopter ride. The remaining teams take marked cars and find a Detour: Climb Up or Fly Behind. Most teams choose Climb Up, which involves complicated climbing and repelling, but one chooses Fly Behind, which involves searching a large water mass for a buoy with a clue. Although this option seems hopelessly awful at first, it turns out to offer an advantage when the team choosing it finds themselves ahead of many who chose Climb Up. Later, a Roadblock involving grape-stomping to make wine causes the same team to stumble

Maybe its time to have more & longer episodes per week, Maybe its time to have ONE leg of the race last longer than a VERY heavily edited 1h episode per week. & I dont mean they get to the pit stop & Phil hands them a clue & tells them they are still racing. I mean actual longer legs. Legs that last 2-4 episodes. I want to not complain about this version but with all the gimmicks (some just stupid beyond belief: Phil trying to be Matchmaker..s26) the short episodes, the short legs, and everything else in between. It makes it hard Not to complain. I think thats one of the main reasons why I prefer to watch HaMerotz LaMillion over this. & have since 2012. Also back in 2013 I had more fun watching Velyki perehony than I did while watching TAR22. The Ukrainian's version was basic. No gimmicks, no twists, no nothing, other than one continuing leg. So maybe Producers & CBS should think about things, instead of what just seems like bashing out series after series just to get another series on air.

Even though the race has been gradually dumbed down through the years and I am not a fan of the twists that have been added in more recent seasons, this is the only competitive reality show that I've stuck with since the beginning (I choose to believe that the family version doesn't exist).

They need to copy Israels version a little bit. At least with having more than 1 43min episode a week.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
