Don at the roadblock?

Ron for the breakdown? :lol3:

How many RB's has Don done?? Can he afford to not do one? Big trouble if he already started though--that could be enough for an elim right there!

The racer that blows a gasket has to be either Ron or Jen. They are the only two I can see getting angry out of all of the contestants left.

I agree the NEL prob is this week too--but it could be next time too right? I know apskip says that makes flights dificult  but HEY KOGS--hasn't there often been a NEL  just before the last push to the finale?? The next to the last leg?

Isn't the penalty for not doing a RB something like 24 hours??  :ascared

I think booking and taking the wrong class tickets is the 24 hour penalty and the RB is what 5 hours..BRB
And the race is different this season, 11 episodes not 13 so who knows what they have in store for us?

When Rob quit the meat roadblock in TAR7 the penalty was four hours that starts once the next team arrives at the RB -- and if you're last I guess it's just a four hour penalty.

One of my all time favorite episodes Michael  :jumpy:

From Wiki:

 Penalties and time credits
The standard penalty for minor rule infractions is 30 minutes plus the time advantage gained (if any) by disobeying the rule. When the team arrives at a pit stop, Phil Keoghan will state "you are the nth team to arrive", and then he will inform them of the penalty or the missed clue. This penalty is known to apply when taking the wrong form  or a prohibited mode of transportation, not following the instructions on the clue, or interfering with other teams in ways such as (inadvertently) taking another team's assigned car or taking more than one clue from a clue box
If a team realizes they performed an infraction of the rules before they move on to the next task or check in, they can go back to the point where the infraction occurred and repeat the task as per the rules without any penalty outside of the time wasted to return to the task, unless their actions have interfered with another team, in which case a penalty is still applied. In some cases, a team that skips a Route Marker or performs a task incorrectly does not receive a penalty; rather, the racers will not be able to check in at the Pit Stop and will be told by host Phil Keoghan to complete the missed tasks.
If a team should quit a Roadblock, they are assessed a four-hour penalty starting from when the next team arrives. If a team should quit a Detour, they are assessed a 24-hour penalty (though this has only occurred once, when Nancy & Emily quit the Detour in Season 1).[26]
If a team's vehicle breaks down through no fault of their own or otherwise becomes inoperable, they may request a replacement vehicle without receiving a time penalty. However, no time credit is given for their wait in this unlucky situation.[27] (See The Amazing Race 2 Trivia).
In Season 10 and Season 11, teams that arrive last in non-elimination legs are assessed a 30-minute penalty upon completing the following leg unless they have arrived first, in which case no penalty is applied.
Teams that fly on business class tickets are assessed a 24 hour penalty.
Sometimes, teams are delayed by production difficulties. In early seasons, several teams were awarded time credits because of such difficulties

Thanks! Detours 24 hours--RB's 4+ hours--wonder what happens if you are the last team and there is no next team? :lol:

Thanks kogs! But that would be the 29th...

To the penalty.  When it happened to Rob & Amber (not to mention Gretchen & Meredith and Ray & Deana) it was 4 hours starting when the next team arrived at the roadblock.

But in season 6, in the next to last leg (it was the last episode).  Hayden and Aaron were the last teams to arrive at the roadblock and after not finding the right lock and the place about to close Hayden asked aaron what would happen.  And its they take a 4 hour penalty.  Now of course that Aaron so what does he know.

But at the Mat, Phil does tell them that they have been penalized 4 hours (and really 1 minute is enough to let Adam & Rebecca check in official as team #3.

So based on scenes in season 6 and 7,  It appears if you aren't last to the roadblock its 4 hours plus (starting when the next team arrives at the roadblock).  But if you are last at the roadblock its just 4 hours.

Which does make sense.  If a team has a huge starting advantage (either from luck, a strong previous leg, or a strong current leg) it doesn't give them the option of just saying hey we have 4 hours lets just not to the roadblock.
