Scenario 1: about fast forward
A team chooses to skip the fast forward and go to the next task (let's say it's a roadblock). This team goes to the roadblock and fails after several attempts.
Questions to this scenario:
1.) Is the team allowed to go back and perform the fast forward instead?
2.) If yes, what happens to the team's roadblock count?
But if a team quits a roadblock, it is a 4-hour penalty...
They didn't quit they just moved onto the FF...
Also this is allowed because Brandon & Nicole did it (though they failed the FF)
IIRC, Brandon & Nicole had arrived at the Roadblock, which Brandon then attempted to complete. Brandon stopped, and they went for the FF. When they saw what the FF was, they went back to the RB location, which Brandon went on to complete (at which point they were in last place). I don't necessarily see that as a quit, because teams have attempted tasks, then stopped to pursue the FF before. I would consider it a quit if it were something on a Momily level (skipping the Detour when they could have just switched from looking for the car to taking the bus).
Now, if Brandon & Nicole went back to the RB location, and Nicole completed it, I believe that's a whole different scenario (as Brandon did elect to do the RB before they switched).
