This may sound like a stupid question..

Say 4 teams are on a race to the mat and all arrive within the same minute, then another team arrives a minute later.. Then, would the start times be odd?

Ex.:
Team A, B, C, D arrives at pit stop at 7.30 PM
Team E arrives at pit stop at 7.31 PM

Would that mean..
Team A, B, C and D depart from pit stop at 7.30 AM, 7.31 AM, 7.32 AM, and 7.33 AM respectively.
Team E departs from pit stop at 7.31 AM

Would that mean Team E starts the next leg earlier than C and D even though its placement the previous leg is lower than C and D?

Hmm.. ???

Nope. Team E gets pushed back as well. They'll depart at 7:34 AM instead.

My follow-up question, has this happened before?

Last season leg 2 (Mark and Mallory's elimination), where the 3rd to 7th place team appeared together? (I think)

Who were the former Amazing Racers at the TAR25 starting line? I thought I recognized someone, but the camera shot went too fast.

Frank (TAR1), Terence (TAR13) and Luke (TAR14, TAR18 and TAR24).

I didn't see Luke! Need to go rewind that moment!!!

Just check the pics of the departing line in the spoilers board.

1. Non-elimination legs are predetermined, right? So, if a team with save (i.e. Misti and Jim) arrives last at that predetermined NEL, do they still get to keep The Save?

Speculation been spread that they might go Oceania region (Hobart/Melbourne, Australia or New Zealand) last season.
My favourite team:
AMY & MAYA (Nat&Kat 2.0 + Brook&Claire 2.0), SHELLEY & NICI, (Amy/Marie lookalike KYM & Lexi lookalike ALLI minus blonde hair)

A question seen in Weibo today:

In the case that a contestant who has double nationality participates in the show with both of his passports, if he loses his American passport in the race and the other passport still allows him to travel internationally, will he be eliminated?

I imagine that yes he could still travel but would run into problems with visas. If he lost the passport with the entry/exit visas then it would be the same as being eliminated because they couldn't continue the race

He would be traveling on a US passport, so his "other" one would not be in play.

I suspect CBS would not allow the contestant to even take the other nationality passport with them.

Just like how the crew of Survivor did with the winner of the 15th season I wonder?

After arriving at the challenge locale by taxi, do the contestants usually pay the bill and let the taxi go or ask the taxi driver not to leave?

It depends on the situation. If teams are in a populated city, they could let their taxi go each time since it could be cheaper to hire a new one than letting their first taxi wait on them while doing a task, and it's just easy to get another one. But sometimes, taxis are so rare or just hard to get that it's better to hang on to one. Sometimes, the clue itself states what's the best course of action.

Pertaining to the future scheduling of TAR, if Madam Secretary happens to be "eliminated" from CBS, will The Amazing Race have a good chance of moving back to its preceding Sunday time slot if its ratings don't make the worst of the worst first? I read in this new Yahoo! article, https://tv.yahoo.com/photos/2014-shows-in-trouble-slideshow, that although Madam Secretary has a great viewership count, ratings have staggered in vision of advertisers (which TAR desirably has been known for: Travelocity, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Snapple, Carnival Cruise Lines, etc.).

I reckon it depends on whether Madam Secretary will become another Good Wife.  :res:
