The Amazing Race Australia season 2

I was recommended this as a must watch season when I had asked earlier for series to watch. I really enjoyed thought it was really good. Maybe my second favourite out of the one's I have seen so far, the 7th season of the original is still the best for me.

I was happy with the winners thought that Shane and Andrew played the game well, never found them annoying. Which brings me to the runners-up really disliked Paul, thought he was an arrogant ass, Steve was fine but seemed to be guilty by association. Would loved for them to go early after all Paul's posturing at the start. His meltdown/unable to finish the final roadblock as quickly as he would have thought was epic.

My favourite teams were probably Joseph and Grace, loved how she teased Paul at the start and didn't buy into his nonsense. Also liked Lucy and Emilia always like to see teams that are probably not gong to win do well and go far in the competition who are just happy being there and involved.

I thought the locations and challenges were great. Had a little deja vu with the dervishes as had just saw them in a previous season I watched.

Overall I really liked it and would recommend to anyone to watch

I will have to disagree on one of your earlier points. Paul and Steve are my favourite team of all time and I feel most of the ridiculous things he said were an act for the cameras. Grace is in a three-way tie for racers I hate but don't seriously hate. She was definitely needlessly bullying Paul at the Dubai marina and was the true villain of the season if you ask me.

Edit: I also believe that this is the best season in the whole franchise.

Agree! Paul made a great point that Grace was absolutely being a bully.

Look, in life you're always going to come across people you don't like, or who rub you the wrong way, but is that enough reason to want to purposely try to provoke a reaction out of someone? That is straight up bullying. Paul never did anything negative to Grace but be himself, and just because Grace and too many of the other racers didn't like who he is, doesn't mean he and his partner deserved to be marked as the evil outcasts (who didn't even perform as well initially as was expected).

There's no one way to "play the game" and just because Paul's intensity and focus was too much for the other teams doesn't mean he deserved all the crap he got from the other racers just because they were intimidated and insecure...

It’s a shame that the Cheerleader Twins were the team in the Final Five who left the least impression on the OP ~

Feels sad. Michelle and Jo are two of the most consistent racers ever. They made it to the finale, and placed in the top 3 every leg except 2. They also crushed a lot of the tasks along the way and were just a fun team to watch.

Wasn't that they didn't leave an impression on me, was more they were just there surrounded by teams I liked/didn't like so not really invested in them but they did very well.

Love this season as well. All of the first 3 seasons of TARAUS are so awesome. Even S4 was great despite being on-rails unlike the previous seasons.

I honestly thought that Paul lost pretty gracefully, and it was great to see him at the final mat sharing nice words for everyone. I know he was very arrogant and a bit intense (not on the level of John from the following season), but I thought he had a great story arc and I would love to see them race again.

A lot of the TAR fans considered TAR Australia Season 2 to be one of the best international seasons in TAR history.

Sorry for the res but where can Aussies watch full season of TAR? I loved it as a kid, afaik we don't have access to the cbs streams. I thought prime would have it. I'm watching season 2 of the Australian version on 10
