What would happen if a team lost their EP/SP?

I think production would just print a new one for them :lol:

I also don't think they would print a new one for the team because IIRC, a team lost their CoP picture and they weren't given a replacement. ???

Totally forgot about the COPs :lol:

Yeah I guess that would happen, but I think there's a chance it would get reprinted because an EP is a PRIZE, not something you should keep with you? Just my 2 cents. :)

It shouldn't be difficult to keep it in a safe spot. Plus, I don't know when production would have the time or resources to print on special paper and/or laminate it. If they really want it, they should keep it.

I don't believe production would replace a lost EP. Production will not replace a lost clue or instruction sheet, or a lost gnome. And we know production will not replace a passport, although we at RFF have been known to help return a Racer's lost passport to a Racer before they got eliminated.

There is nothing said about that. I just think it is quite a stupid thing, since

1. A team with an Express Pass would not risk it and try to not become last (use it before getting last in a NEL)
2. Using it on a Detour (takes more time) is more intelligent, most of the times. A Speed Bump is easy and takes a few time to complete, while the Detour usually makes the difference.

By the way, I think the Express Pass is only not able to be used in Fast Forwards only AFAIC

I think an EP can skip a speedbump, but a speedbump is too easy to skip.
Any team who still possesses the EP after getting NEL'd would most likely use the EP on a detour or a rb.
I read from Wikipedia (but I can't find it there anymore) that an FF is EP-able, but there's a time penalty. (6 hours? ??? )

It is currently unknown whether the EP can be used on a Fast Forward. I don't think anyone can confirm it one way or another until it is addressed in the show.

sometimes a team can get a pitstop clue at first place but go to pitstop mat at last place because of cab driver or navigation problem (in self-driving leg)...

Whatever.

For #2, a Fast Forward has appeared in a leg with a U-Turn, the two that pop into my mind is TAR16 in Singapore are TAR21 in Amsterdam.  ;D

I'm not sure what you mean by your first point? If your talking about teams that fans feel are the biggest fan favourites of all time, then I would say -

Charla & Mirna
Dustin & Kandice
Brook & Claire
Jet & Cord (Yea, I know a lot of people don't like them, but based on the FB fans this team needs to here)
Gary & Mallory
Bopper & Mark (Maybe this has lessened now after Marks appearance in All Stars)

I'm sure there a tons I'm missing, but of the top of my head, they're the teams I'd consider the biggest fan favourites.

And I'm not sure some you included are "fan favorites" to begin with.

And some people have short memories. There were teams not picked for the original All-Stars season that I think are fan favorites.

CBS has said this season was cast based on social media interest in a team, but I'm not so sure, because at least one team are fan favorites who weren't included (Jamyes and James).

I'd rather not even attempt to suggest who the all time fan favorite teams are because there are more opinions than there are visible stars in the sky on that topic.

My answer: Example Season 1 fan favorites are Kevin & Drew
Whatever.

Ok, if your looking for the fan favourites of each season, here's who I'd say - (These are Teams I feel the majority of people rooted for, and not necessarily my favourites of the season) -

Season 1 - Kevin & Drew
Season 2 - Oswald & Danny
Season 3 - Ken & Gerard
Season 4 - Jon & Al
Season 5 - Charla & Mirna
Season 6 - Kris & Jon
Season 7 - Uchenna & Joyce
Season 9 - Fran & Barry or BJ & Tyler
Season 10 - David & Mary or Dustin & Kandice
Season 11 - Charla & Mirna or Dustin & Kandice
Season 12 - Kynt & Vyxsin
Season 13 - Toni & Dallas
Season 14 - Margie & Luke
Season 15 - Sam & Dan or Flight Time & Big Easy
Season 16 - Jet & Cord
Season 17 - Brook & Claire
Season 18 - This one I'm not sure? Most of them :lol:
Season 19 - Amani & Marcus or Bill & Chati
Season 20 - Mark & Bopper
Season 21 - Jaymes & James
Season 22 - Joey & Meghan
Season 23 - Chester & Ephraim
Season 24 - So far Mark & Mallory or maybe Dave & Connor

We haven't got any news of the renewal of this show so far. Will S24 be the final season?

From my experience about a decade ago, now, I would say that if there was any such possibility the "network" would be sending out an alarm.
CBS makes money off of TAR not just from advertisers in the most highly preferred demo but from international syndication, and they finally figured out they can used TVGN which CBS half-owns as well as I Tunes and Google as revenue streams. And the overnights are now so deceptive as to the actual audience that watches within the 30 days now being tracked by CBS Research internally, that worrying about the ratings has become ridiculous. (When we're still in the Top 25 in the weekly broadcast ratings, no matter what those overnights look like, it has become next to meaningless.)

The only ones shown were the first five teams who finished it. But I have a feeling that after the first flight tickets ran out, they just gave the rest without checking the Chinese characters.
