The Bransons won a lifetime supply of gasoline for the four team members, not oil. And it was valued in gallons not a cash value at the time.They definitely came out ahead on that, because the median price of gasoline in the U.S. has gone up considerably since their season (i.e., I don't think anyone in the U.S. was paying $3.00/gal. at the time, and now, you cannot find any gas anywhere in the U.S. as low as $3.00/gal. at anytime during the year. (I know that where I'm at the lowest it has been since the beginning of 2012 has been $3.09/gal. last spring, and the lowest this spring has been $3.27/gal. (a few weeks ago); then it went up to $3.79/gal. in less than 48 hours.)But as I said, the Bransons cleaned up on the gasoline prize.
All TARA prizes are awful.
Leg 1 – A Sony PlayStation 3 and BRAVIA for each team member.Leg 2 – A Sony VAIO for each team member.Leg 3 – A vacation package worth US$3,000 to Colombo, Sri LankaLeg 4 – US$2,000 eachLeg 5 – Trip for two to the Philippines and US$3,000, and a helicopter ride to Legazpi Airport to be given after all teams had departed in the next leg.Leg 6 – A vacation package and a dinner for two at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, worth US$5,100Leg 7 had a virtual pit stop with no prize given for the first team. A special prize of an upgrade at any Hilton hotel was awarded to Ethan & Khairie for being the fastest team to complete the Hilton bed-making challenge.Leg 8 – A 4-day ski vacation at Niseko, Japan worth US$6,000 for the first place team.Leg 9 – A year's supply of Caltex with Techron worth US$5,000Leg 10 – A trip to Hilton in the Maldives worth US$6,000
I'm pretty sure BP gave them credit cards to use (which they used during season 8 since for that season only production had teams used the production provided credit cards for both gasoline and airline travel.)
What's a catamaran?It's a boat.Oh, uh, yay...?

Just out of curiosity, has TAR ever had a season with teams consisting of a returning racer and a different partner? For the life of me, I can't remember.
The thing is most of the racers say: "I would only race again with my previous partner". IDK, I really like seeing teams go back, not only half of it... just my opinion.

She turned them down because she only wanted to Race with Zach. I guess that's why they went with another hybrid dating team with Eric & Danielle who apparently weren't even really dating.
