    1. Oddly that can also be the sort of development that some viewers can appreciate in a reality program, to see how they will they cope with the situation. It’s more realism than if reality shows were to be rigged so the favourites remain.

  1. I saw this show over the weekend. It does seem like a TAR clone, though it does seem good for young travellers or those planning to explore overseas. For example the word water was lost in translation, but one team member had the acumen to try the word aqua as well. Some interesting locations as well.
