This is weird, but I'd love to see a Father/Daughter team where the Daughter is bratty, spoiled, and all ever since teenage years and the Father wants to reconnect with her.

Similar to Duke & Lauren but it would be nice to see a team like this go far and have their relationship re-evaluated.

You could do Alice Springs and Ayers Rock/Uluru in one leg and the 2nd leg in Australia could be a city leg (Canberra or Melbourne) but other then that its a good route.

Yeah, Uluru and Alice Springs really won't yield you much if you're spreading them over two legs.

I have asked this previously in this thread. PLEASE no wishlist MAPS anymore. It slows the pages way down and are not necessary. Save it for the real thing.

So NO MORE, okay? THanks!

After 22 seasons and only two all female teams winning? There's room for more.

Here's hoping that this season all female teams will have:

Caroline and Jennifer's fun loving spirit
Charla and Mirna's amazing luck and skills in Allstars
Dustin and Kandice's competitiveness
Nat and Kat's brains
Brooke and Claire's strength and witty punchlines
A lottle of Cara and Jaime's sassy snappy attitude for the hilarity and drama

Here is my fantasy race beginning:

The race begins somewhere in New York City.  The first clue advises the racers of the three flights that may be taken, and even when the flights are scheduled to land.  The catch is that each of the flights takes off from a different airport: Newark, LaGuardia and JFK.

The logistics of such a beginning likelly ensure that it will forever remain a fantasy.
We can put a man on the moon, so why can't we have a Fast Forward in every leg?

A Roadblock U-Turn wouldn't be too much to ask, no?

Either that or the Yield to return - I don't know, it always seemed more devastating than a U-Turn, but then again, it all depends on what Detour the U-Turn appears

I know! I don't understand why there are limits to a Roadblock U-Turn type thing being implemented, especially if it was disgusting tasks (which would be hilarious to watch :lol:) (which is another wishlist of mine, more gross-out tasks like eating disgusting things etc)

Maybe have it so that when they get U-Turned then it doesn't count towards the overall Roadblock Count? :duno:

Regarding the Roadblock U Turn, the other partner should do it because then the person who originally did it already knows how to do it, or the answer. The only situation where it seems like they would not know is one of those search for... roadblocks
