TARLA 1: Ferna and Fran vs Tamara and Matias
TARLA 3: Anyone, they where so soft whit each other and was almost boring to watch  :'(

There was two rivalries in TARLA 1:  Tamara & Matías vs. Rodrigo & Anna (don't forget the insults both ways along the race until the brasilian team was elimintated) and Ferna & Fran vs Daniel & David (remember how the girls called David "el niño" - the kid - with rejection).

And in TARLA 2, Aleandra & Marlene vs. Vinicius & Guilherme.

Can a team use their Express Pass to skip the Fast Forward task and go directly to the pit-stop?

I remember reading somewhere (I think it was on the AR Wiki) that a team will incur a 4 hour penalty if this happens. But I reckon that that's fair.

I remember seasons 17 and 19 as having no real team dramas. In fact teams seemed to get along so well it was almost boring :lol:

I remember that not certainly as a drama. Brooke & Claire weren't really angry at them, from what I know.

Yeah, I don't really remember that as a rivalry at all.

Hello, one question about TAR17 has been stuck in my head since a long time ago and I just couldn't find the answer in the web, so I guess perhaps so of you will know?..

Why did Nick & Vicki not have to do a speed bump after their first NEL?

The judges of that detour made a mistake. Nick and Vicki got it but spended much more time than needed , because the judges missed the right anwser.

Oh, thanks! Something about that (judge being incorrect) seems familiar, maybe I have seen it somewhere a long time ago, so that I couldn't remember? :?

Right before posting this, another question popped into my head: how many roadblocks can a single person do and is there a rule that there can't be a difference of more than 2 in the number of roadblocks both team members have completed?

The how many roadblocks question has always been complicated. Some seasons seemed to be different than others but I don't think anyone has been able to do more than two more than their partner since season 6.

Hmm, that's interesting, because by leg 7, Michael had done 2 RBs and Kevin had done 4. However, before the leg's RB, Kevin says something like 'I've done 4 RBs and my dad's only done 2, so he had to do this one'.

??

That question still remains a mystery, I guess.

The ROADBLOCK BALANCE RULE was instituted after season 5.

Maybe the better example of egregious ROADBLOCK splits was season 5's finalists. Their splits were:
Chip 9 Kim 1
Brandon 9 Nicole 1
Colin 8 Christie 1

Well , Kevin only sayed that , because of strategy . If Michael could do this "easy" ones , than Kevin could do the hard ones later in the game.

And also Flo: 1, Zach: 9. I don't even remember which Roadblock Flo did back then :lol:

What's is your idea of the 'perfect team'? Is it one that is polite and nice and still races well or maybe ultra-competitive, no-nonsense team or something else?

a team that only argues amongst themselves, plays fair and strategic, races consistently, sense of humour, kind and likeable  :hearts:

I don't know whether this has already been asked, but if a team used a Blind U-Turn, would they have been allowed to use a normal U-turn later on in the race (because they still had their Courtesy Of picture)?

Luke of TAR14 and TAR18 drops by here from time to time, and I believe he said at one point that he and his mother would have been able to use the U-Turn in China, if they had gotten there first.
