So, I've been looking around for more information about TAR, and found that next to the massive list of 23 US TARs, there are TARs from other countries, as well, and quite curious about some of the details.
Canada seems to have only one season, and is a race around Canada, instead of around the world. The prize money is a lot less cash, but also has lots of extras tossed in. It only has 9 teams, and they seem to be built up rather differently. For example, they have 4 out of 9 family teams, two of which were colored sisters. Makes me curious if they have a much smaller base to pick contestants from, or have a different view of what would be interesting teams.
Where Canada tries to remain cheaper by staying in the country, Australia seems to do the opposite. The prize money is a lot less cash than in the US version, and unlike the Canadian version, no extras are tossed in, but they do take it around different continents, and even have contestants travel multiple times during a single leg. Episodes also seem to last longer than usual, and Grant Bowler did more for me than the Canadian host.
What are people's opinions on these alternative TARs? I watched the Canada one and the first Australian one, and they seem similar enough that if you enjoy one TAR, you'll enjoy the others.
And are there more of them? I know there's an Asian version, but I haven't checked it yet. I don't mind subtitles in a movie, but having constant subtitles in a reality-show would be somewhat weird.
Sorry if this has been discussed before. I didn't find any recent threads about them, and I didn't want to necro.
