ImANewUser Amazing Race 10 (also known as TAR Male Teams 2) is the 10th installment of the fictional series, ImANewUser Amazing Race. The season features fourteen all-male teams from the show, The Amazing Race. Originally hosted on the ORG Tavern, it was cancelled due to lack of activity. It was then revived on Fantasy Games Central (FGC for short), becoming the first edition to be hosted on the site.

Production

Development and Filming

The route spans approximately 40,000 miles and covers 6 continents. Host and producer ImANewUser reveals that the season will feature first-time visits to the United Kingdom and Ethiopia. The season was also confirmed to visit Argentina, India, Australia and Russia. Other previously unvisited countries include Germany, Morocco (including a visit to Western Sahara), Saudi Arabia, Kazakhstan and Iran.

This season will feature various changes from the first nine seasons. First, the prize for winning the first leg of the Race is the Express Pass, which allows the team to skip any task of their choice until the eighth leg. Second, the penalty for coming in last at a non-elimination leg will be the Hazard, which increases the difficulty of a regular task for the team. Third, this edition will introduce the Blind Yield & the Double U-Turn.

There were 36-hour extended Pit Stops on Legs 7 & 8 and a 24-hour extended Pit Stop on Leg 13. Leg 3 also featured the first zero-hour Pit Stop in the history of the series.

The Detour for the leg was Hatters or Platters. In Hatters, teams had to grab a cowboy hat at the nearby hat rack and match the hat to a local walking around the gardens. In Platters, teams had to head inside the café and consume an entire platter of Tex-Mex cuisine, with their next clue written the bottom of the platter.

For the final Roadblock of the Race, teams had to move a set of boats into 14 marked docks, with each dock representing a leg of the Race (see below). Once the boats were correctly docked, the lifeguard handed them their next clue.

Additional Tasks

  • At the Fort Worth Stock Yards, teams had to navigate the stock yards’ maze. To help them, the proper route was marked with a placard of cities, placed in the order which they were visited on the race (see below).
  • At Winspear Opera House, teams had to spin the animal faces on a totem pole and arrange them in order of their first appearance on the season to open the door to the Finish Line (see below).
