Question 1: Has anyone in RFF ever participated in TAR as a contestant?

Question 2: Do you think we should create a thread talking about former contestants' life after the show? For instance, how are they doing now? Did they participate in a talking show or something like that recently?

Me! Well, sort of. I was lurking around for a while before I left for Season 14. I told my family to check RFF out if they want to keep track of my Mom and I. When the picture from Phuket surfaced, my family knew the ankle is me!! Haha but yeah, my family were thrilled to see that we made it to Thailand.

But I know I never posted before I went on the first race but I was a regular on here before I disappeared for second race. Does that counts? Haha
Including being a contestant in a survivor game. :lol:

Not my fault that the game were SO super slow! I mean, I knew I was going to be on the Race before I signed up for the game. I thought the game will be at fast pace and all done before I left for the Race! But, it moved so slow so I just quitted. Sorry guys!

But, I know it was kind of fishy how I quit out of blue and vanished. I bet some of you probably figured it out I was getting ready for the Race.

Survivor game? Did you show up on Survivor? ???

Question: How did Justin & Jennifer get past CBS casting? Given that Jennifer can't stand Justin, I don't think they will be a very good team...

What is the penalty for quitting a U-turn?

I think it's just like quitting a detour. 4 hours.

4 hours for quitting roadblocks, 6 hours for quitting detours. I'm not sure when the penalty for quitting roadblocks dropped from 24 hours to 6 hours. Anyone know? Also, does anyone know how long the penalty is for quitting normal tasks? In China Rush it's 2 hours, but I don't know if anyone's actually quit a task in the American version.

For the drop, I assume you mean detours :P. I think the first time it was 6 hours was Nick and Vicki getting it in season 17. Before that Maria and Tiffany in season 15 received 24 hours for quitting their detour.

I could be completely wrong, but that's what I remember.

You're right. 6 hours for quitting detours. I made it wrong.

Saravannan, I think you are wrong about the penalties for Maria and Tiffany. In episode 7, they failed to complete the "Golf" DETOUR and were also unable to do the "Ring the bell with strength" DETOUR. That would have resulted in a penalty of either 24 hours or the "prevailing not did complete DETOUR" penalty if different. The only time in the history of the Amazing Race at that point was that it been assessed in AR1, episode 9 to Emily and Nancy. However, all other teams finished up ahead of Maria and Tiffany, so the "fail to complete DETOUR" penalty was not actually assessed, although it would have been if necessary.

Yup! Season 5. Marshall and Lance. One of them got a bad knee and cannot keep going on. I think. It was in Cairo, Egypt.

Maria & Tiffany got 2-hours in the Season 15 because two of their tourists got kidnapped by the Japanese Mafia lost in their hunt for the pit stop, and it was a non-elimination leg.

Not quite. It was across the Nile River from Karnak in southern Egypt. Marshall and Lance were actually destined for last place and elimination long before Marshall's knees gave out. I remember that Phil actually came to the "digging in the sand" ROADBLOCK site to eliminate them.

We don't know that they were destined for last place but for the injury; my recollection was that the knee injury was hampering them the entire leg, and it was at the roadblock they had to quit because the one who was injured couldn't do the task any longer (and I suspect medical said he had to quit because continuing would have made the injury more serious. But Phil did go to the Roadblock to eliminate them.

A girl named Silvia on Weibo.com said she encountered with some contestants of a home-made version of TAR in America. The game was on for two days. Here's a photo:



Was this game organized by fans here in RFF? :lol:

Has there been a rule that contestants are not allowed to use low-cost airlines? ??? I remember once reading something like that... But this season teams used Air Asia which is low-cost airline, same in season 15 when they used Air Baltic. So if there was that kind of rule, it's not in use anymore?  :duno:

No overall rule that I know of. But in some places, they are told they can ONLY use *** airlines.

Question: What is the penalty for quitting a Route-Info in the US version and Asian version? (Has it ever happened?)

I know on China Rush S2 it happened, which incurred a 2 hour penalty, the same as quitting other tasks in this season.

When has the race featured or acknowledged individuals or teams that raced in previous editions of the race?

The only instances I can think of are:
During the Season 15 Switchback Roadblock, a replay of Lena & Kristy from Season 6 is shown.
In the Family Edition, Kevin (or was it Drew?) hands racers a clue in New York.

Are there any others like this? (Not including All-Star seasons obviously)
