TAR fans: Things you wish you knew
What do FORT TAR fans wish they knew about TAR?
For example, these are some of my questions:
Do they have laundry service at the pit stops? How do they get their clothes cleaned for the next leg? Do they have to do it themselves or does someone do it for them? (Or do they run around in filthy clothes).
What do they do for food for the race? Are there professional chefs at the pit stops, and what do they eat (and how) while they're on the run? How many meals do they get? Does the show provide the food they eat on the run?
Is there more than one camera guy for each team? Do they switch off? I.e. during the time in India where everyone is sleeping at the train station, the camera guy can't sleep, right? Because he has to take possible unexpected footage, so is there someone else that takes another shift?
Why haven't they been to Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, or Russia?
How long does an average leg last? Some of them seem to go on for days, due to openings/closings of different locations and long plane trips etc.
What do people have to go through during the audition process in order to get on the show? I.e. I saw Elizabeth from the 2nd Survivor (Australia) talk about having to be sequestered in a hotel room for an extended period of time to see if she could handle the isolation. What do they do to the TAR teams?
What happens to you when you're eliminated? Do you hang out with the other teams and then fly right back to your home? Or do you have to stick around the production crew until the race is over, just so that no one knows whether you win or not? If they do stick around, do they stay with the production crew (ala Survivor-esque fashion)?
How much money do you get if you don't win the contest? The winners get one million dollars, but does everyone else get squat if they don't win? (During the first Survivor, it was let out that 3rd place got something like 75k, 4th got 50k, and so on and so forth). What do you get if you don't win? Nothing?
To Bertram Van Muenster: Sell something besides t-shirts. How about a behind the scenes video? A making of the show video? A bloopers tape? Audition tapes? And what has happened to past winners? I.e. will you ever give us an update show? I.e. a "where are they now" show? I.e. what is Flo doing now? What happened to Tara? Etc. etc.
So, FORT fans, what do YOU want to know about the show? (Or have you heard any answers to any of the above).
