2.) What if the camera crew is late? Let's say a team is suppose to depart at 3:55 AM, but no camera crew is present, maybe because they overslept.

1) I'm pretty sure that the task masters and producers wouldn't allow the team to use the second Express Pass and would just outright refuse to give them the next clue.  But in the event that it actually happens, they would probably be either forced to return to the task and complete it or be served a penaly equivalent of quitting the task.

2) Production probably have back-up crews ready. But if it happens, most likely a time credit would be given to the affected team at the next pit stop. A late camera crew is probably considered a 'production difficulty'.  :)

Thanks! :)

I'm pretty certain the team would be penalized for violation the rules on the express pass in addition to the penalty for not completing whatever task they skipped. Probably the 30 minute minimum plus the incomplete task penalty would be my guess. Late camera crew is far less likely since the crews usually don't sleep where the teams do, and can film the teams at the pit stop hotel location (which has happened more than once). Since camera crews are rotated every leg (known to be true in the early seasons, and no reason to think that has been changed) the odds of a camera crew oversleeping a team departure is unlikely (and a location crew films the pit stop departure in addition to the film crew that follows that team that leg.)

I see... Thanks! :)

Platrium:
This most likely wouldn't happen, unless the team wants their names on this record.
Is the team holding the EP allowed to let the EP expire, or are they required to use it on the 8th leg if they didn't use it on earlier legs?

nosyrabbit:
I guess the EP will be expired then.
