Just remembered: In TAR25's Philippine Legs, is the Leg 10 fish detour clue giver the same as the Leg 11 sidecar detour clue giver? ???

No. :D The lady at the Leg 11 sidecar Detour had long hair, while the other woman's hair didn't reach past her shoulder.

Going back to the Fast Forward thing: Could a team, after claiming a Fast Forward, go back and complete the actual race course (Roadblocks, Detours, etc) and perhaps even use the U-Turn? Hypothetical situation: [season 21/Amsterdam] after claiming the FF, Natalie & Nadiya finished the Detour, and used the U-Turn, before going directly to the pit stop (w/o completing the RB).

On another note, what's the difference between TBC and double-length legs? And are these just purely fandom terms?

The only thing one can do after the Fast Forward is go to the Pit Stop.

TBC stands for To Be Continued, which is shown on-screen for both Double-Length legs and No-Rest legs. The difference is that DL Legs are one leg that is twice as long, while NR Legs are two legs that have no rest-point inbetween.

Since the claim of the "300th" leg, a few DL Legs are going to be reclassified as NR Legs, but other than that we have a pretty solid grasp on which is which.

So 'No Rest' legs are counted as 2. Does this include fake pit stops in season 14/China? But didn't we never concluded how the heck they got 300?

Season 14 has been counted as a Double-Length leg for a while now.

I can't remember, but I think someone in the 300th leg thread came up with something definitive. I've been waiting for a good amount of free time to really look into it myself and edit the wiki.

Edit: Neobie came up with two believable hypotheses for the 300 leg conundrum. When I get home later I'll double-check his findings and implement one of them. If the show said 300, then that's gospel.

Don't take that to heart too much. If that's true, Joey & Meghan was in season 18 ... somehow.
