Aw, trap detours I love them
Some that come to mind:
- TAR 18: the dining cart Detour in Austria (ignoring that that is a lot
of food to consume in 12 minutes, if you dared try it again you would be doing so on a full stomach or else having to perform an impromptu elimination iykwim)
- TAR 25: the gostra Detour in Malta; while not *impossible* (I think a team of two Allis could do it), it's certainly probably the hardest task of that season
- TAR 26: the waterskiing Detour in Phuket, granted I don't think it was designed to be impossible because producers attached a Save to it but still!
And then of course there are the Detours that are impossible due to production difficulties (the final walking Detour in Hawaii in TAR 3, one could argue both sides of the Detour in the second Vietnam leg in TAR 3) or other issues (the airplane Detour in Alaska in TAR 9 which was cancelled due to a snowstorm).
fake eta the morse code Detour was terribly designed but then again that entire leg was terribly designed, starting with having a mobile Pit Stop in the first place rather than bunch teams on a train (or have a KOR).
