I can't help but wonder what the TAR US and TAR Canada production crews are going to do to revise their own protocols after they hear about this logistical nightmare.

Do not film in a crowded night market for starters?

Another charter flight season?

Or.....a domestic one (well, the Canadians make it work, not sure the US) 😱?

Didn't Beau quit a celebrity show because he didn't want to spend any more time away from his family? And now he's isolating in a foreign country away from his family? Lol rough

Classic Network 10.

They keep stepping up their fuck-up game with every successive season somehow. It's honestly really impressive. TRAUS7 will probably need to have teams get murdered live on air to keep up.

I've watched up to season 5, both Channel 7 & 10's incarnations.

I thought the majority of the network 10 episodes were usually decent because of the variety of challenges and humor/ albeit channel 7's being more thrilling and they could certainly draw a lot more lessons from it.

However, the things that did bother me though were:

  • The 2 luck based challenges in season 4.

  • The U-Turn vote during an elimination leg in Season 4 in the final 4.

  • Season 5 felt like they could have split that into 2 separate more focused seasons, rather than introducing stow-away teams late (instead of letting them run from the start)
    and constantly changing the format of legs.

  • The misleading edit used on Chris/Aleisha's team on season 5 episode 21.

  • The idea of the voting off a team in season 5 (Thankfully it didn't happen, but it was announced).

Let’s hope there isn’t a TARAUS7, at least under this production

I don't watch, what have they done?

Wow, production chaos. In terms of racing during the pandemic, definitely not a smart move to film racing around crowded areas such as the markets at Marrakech, Morocco.

Are you kidding me? They had positive cases and they’re not stopping filming? 10’s production has just gone from awful to endangering people’s lives. I hope the show gets cancelled for the contestant’s sake and our sake.

It would very irresponsible be if they allowed people to participate in person after a positive test, though perhaps they rescheduled and used rapid antigen tests on everyone else before letting the others continue? Not sure if there's more info on this somewhere?

You beat me to the post by 90 seconds. Well done.
