Luke, quick question:

If you use the Blind U-turn, are you allowed to use the regular U-turn?

Thanks!

Yup! We were allowed to use the regular U-Turn. We hoped that we would be the first team to use U-Turn twice on two different teams and effectively eliminated two teams. That would be awesome to make a history like that. I tried to convince Tammy & Victor to let us U-Turn Kisha & Jen but they were worried that we wouldn't be able to beat Kisha & Jen to U-Turn first then we would have been U-Turned by K&J.

Dang it!

If my memory serves correctly, they were right to be worried. Didn't KF arrive at the U-Turn 2nd, only after Tammy & Victor.

I thought Luke and Margie arrived 2nd, then K/J. Jaime and Cara took one heck of a long time finding that place.

A pair of questions to Luke.

From a racer's view, how many of you expected the TBC to get back to the race? And, did any of you expect the lack of Fast Forwards (1, unaired), or did you expect an Intersection or something like that? Were you willing to have an Intersection half through the race??

Thanks!

Question: Why in Season 1 did they slap Momily with the 24-hour penalty, and allow the bit...sorry beauty queens of Season 16 to track back and do the detour?

I think that it was because the Models forgot the detour while Momily and Poker Players (from TAR 15) couldn't do the detour.

Nancy and Emily had the ability to do the detour (which was either find a private car, or take a bus to the next destination) but they made the conscious decision not to complete it.

I have read that a CBS press release shows a stamp task for episode 11, but can't seem to find the release.  Does anyone know where I should look?  Thanks!

Nevermind, I found it.

What happen if you get a penalty in the final leg?? I know it hasn't happened before, but just curious....

This is ALL SPEC, but I guess it would get enacted at the Finish Line (though I suspect Phil/TPTB would rather turn them away to correct their mistake). If there's a change in winner, it would definitely get shown, but otherwise I think they would apply the penalty time off camera.

I'm also thinking that it's due to the fact that it would be a major disappointment if someone had to sit out a penalty in a finale, and then lose that way.  If there's anything that would force a timed penalty or a penalty that would have a team get to the end point only to be directed back to the task, it would probably be enforced at that final point and not at the mat.  If I'm Phil/TPTB, I would want to make sure that prior to the ride to the Finish Line, that a team is "eligible" to hit the mat (penalty-free).

Winning isn't everything, but it isn't considered nothing either. Otherwise, there wouldn't be a tribal council, a pit-stop, a boardroom, dimming of the lights, and so on

Uchenna/Joyce did get initially turned away because they hadn't paid their final taxi driver; the begging that was shown at the Bonnet House was a result of this.

Can a speed bump team use a fast-forward to skip the speed bump and stay in the race?

It's never come up. They can't in my races though, fwiw.

To design consecutive legs to allow the possibility of that is something that World Race Productions logically would not do. Since there is only one Fast Forward per season these days, it is quite easy to make sure they do not follow any NELs.

I have a silly but curious question (which I wish TAR Racers answer personally)...

When do teams have the chance to take a bath? :lol: I mean, I see teams wearing the same type of clothes from a start of the leg up to the end of it. At Pitstops only?

I am just curious, because sometimes, looking good (and smelling good too) can contribute to a team's victory.

Sorry if this was an offense to a team, but I wasn't referring to any teams. :lol:

I have no inside knowledge other than what I read here, but I believe that at most pit stops teams stay in a local hotel or hostel of some kind. I'm confident that they have the opportunity to shower or bathe during the down time. There are probably instances (camped out in the middle of nowhere in tents) where shower facilities are unavailable, but those cases are rare.

I'm sure they get chances to have their clothing laundered too.

Zack is not an amazing racer, but I assume they take advantage of Pit Stops, airport restrooms during layovers, and hotel stays during HoO bunching.  :tup:

Laundry service, though, is a more interesting question - you might smell wonderful, but your clothes could still have your funk.  :snicker:
