Are leg prizes pre-determined?

I noticed that some of the leg prizes can be trips to Hawaii, and what if the team who wins that kind of prize already lives in Hawaii? :ascared

Well let's say The trip in S25 leg 2 where Adam & Bethany won the leg wa to Hawaii, they'd probably change it to another prize like Leg 3's prize to Dubai. Or maybe if a Hawaiian team was on it there are no trips to Hawaii.

Also has there ever been a team from Alaska?

Has there ever been a blind racer, or are blind racers not allowed to race?

Then they could gift it. :tup:

Oh! They'll be forced to gift it though. Still, it's better than having no prize at all.

EVERYTHING is pre-planned and cleared with legal. Nothing like tasks or almost certainly prizes would be changed on a whim.

It's possible that when TAR is negotiating prizes for the season with Travelocity, they may request no trips to Hawaii when they expect to have a team from Hawaii. It probably costs about the same to send a winning team to Mexico or the Caribbean as it does to Hawaii.

Even the prizes in non-US versions I'm pretty sure are all predetermined. There's a team that won cell phones on every leg they won.

There is no reason that question can't be answered publicly?

I answered that, but thought it might cross the spoiler line because the only one that comes to mind is of a cast not officially revealed yet,
Show content
Canada 4. This person may or may not be completely blind, but has the white cane.

I read somewhere that Tyler & James were sitting on top of each other in post-race interviews? Can anyone include a picture?
I only care about female team to win or final 3!

2-way tie for average

Hamilton & Michaelia of Canada, both 19
Romi & Coral of Israel, 18 and 20

The youngest US team I think is Darius & Cameron, 20.5

I'm not sure that is even accurate;  but there are links in their thread from the time they won their season (10 years ago!) and a quick google search shows an image from a CBS interview of them sitting next to each other that was capped by tarflies.com. (It has both the CBS eye and tarflies watermarks on it, so I'm not sure it can be posted here.) But I found nothing of either of them sitting on one another, period.

Don't know where to ask this, as it is indeed a question, but it's more speculative. Maybe you can help me Peach :)

So as of Season 28, the Amazing Race has visited 88 countries (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Amazing_Race_(U.S._TV_series)#Countries_and_locales_visited). When do you guys think The Amazing Race will visit its 100th country? How many seasons would it take to visit twelve more countries? And which country would it be?  ???

Right now I'm genuinely afraid TAR might end at S30, and that would mean no 100th country...
But if the show continues (let's hope so!!), I reckon this will happen around the 35th season. :)

I can accept my girlfriend breaking up with me but if TAR gets axed and ends at Season 30 I won't be able to accept that. I'm serious.
