over under on the number of medical evacuations this season. Rex Ryan is going to make Akbar look like a division 1 basketball player.

You never know. Maybe there will be some sort of foot memorization challenge that he'll excel in.

No non elimination is interesting.
Will that mean a shorter season? Or a few 'keep racing' end to an episode?

There's only ten legs this season, so I'm guessing there's only ten episodes this season.

"And it'll be more difficult than ever for the duos to make it to the finish line. That's because this season, in another first, there will be no non-elimination legs. That means no saving graces or reprieves for even the best team that's having a bad day. Throughout the ten legs that make up the season, teams will travel to Jordan, Austria, Italy, France, Spain, and Iceland, knowing there are no more second chances for a last-place finish." https://parade.com/tv/the-amazing-race-34-cast

Gave up on last season when the travel (through no fault of the show) was taken out of the equation. Then it was just a list of tasks every week. I miss the old days where teams had to make their own travel arrangements and might even find trips that had more stops but were faster.

Will root for the twins. No idea why. But I got a feeling the underdogs will do well.

I like the Scramble; teams will have no idea what place they are in.

I agree, Scramble is a good change.

I hate linear challenges. If you arrive last at a linear challenge, itís rare that you can catch up. An example - wait in line, bungee jump challenge

That one guy looks like Kevin Hart

I like the more compact feel with less fluff and more challenges. Hopefully they keep up this pace. And Rex Ryan's teeth are going to blind somebody.

I really liked the premiere and how they changed up the first leg. It was a bit chaotic, but fun. I liked most of the teams, but Rich and Dom are already annoying. Team T-Rex was my pick for first team out, but they surprisingly did ok.

Here's a segment that CBS Sunday Morning aired about behind the scenes on The Amazing Race. It's a really good watch:

Enjoyable first episode, for both the "scramble" aspect and being reminded there are no pointless non-elimination legs.

The scramble is definitely harder to follow as a viewer, but it's a decent concept. And yes, good riddance to non-elim legs.

Wonder how much travel they will do in this one. The last one was Europe/US only IIRC.

The last race was COVID affected so they could only travel to certain towns and countries. Iím sure there are still places that are still off limits.

Upside, the show now has a charter plane to avoid COVID lockdowns and the producers & editors learned to finish the episodes faster.

2nd episode was ok. Didn't care for the yodeling haha

Was surprised it was a 1.5 hr episode.

Twin sisters did ok. Still in it, to win it.

I'm sure it's always been this way, but this is the first time I really noticed that the teams can't use their phones to help with the race. Seeing those big maps (which seem incapable of folding properly once opened) flopping in the wind gave me flashbacks of the "good old days" (before GPS and smart phones).

Iíve never seen them have access to cell phones unless they do the shameless promo for the Travelocity app.

Iíve always seen them ask the locals to look up directions on their phones.
