Production is not assigned to follow teams as the camera crew does.

However, production is stationed at all tasks. clue boxes, and the pit stops, so if a team violates an instruction at one of those locations, either the local person overseeing a task, a local producer at a location, or production at the pit stop will relay the information to Phil.
In the event there's a rule violation at other times, with only the camera crew present, then the crew can report the issue when the team reaches the pit stop, and a penalty can be assessed during the pit stop, and Phil will record something with the team to inform the team and the viewer about the penalty. (We haven't had one of those in a long time, but that is how that has worked in the past.)

Nope.  Camera guy and sound guy. Production runs with the teams in first and last... at least some of the time.

Also, can anyone explain to me how the decoys work in the final cities? For example, when do they assume they'll need to start having decoys, and how many teams do they use as decoys? Like will the next two teams eliminated be decoys in the finale? ...just curious if anybody knows.

:hiya NickNa Taw, and  :welcome2: to the RFF!

As an example, in last season finale, the twinnies and Ryan & Abbie were spotted in the Lombardi's pizza area doing exactly the same task that the F3 teams. If you check in the TAR21 sightings section, you will able to see the pics of them. How did we know they were decoys? By the lack of camera crew with them. (We also have pics of Trey & Lexie performing the task in Bycicle Habitat with the camera crew).
Maybe my oldest fellow detectives can add more info about for how long it's been happening the decoy thing, but I read here somewhere that Louie and Michael were spotted in San Francisco, during TAR16 finale, carrying a trunk at the same time the F3 were racing to win the million dollars.
And Redskevin88 is right about one of the reasons is to fool people like us who likes to spoil things. :lol:

I don't know if this is to be posted by here. Something known about the filming of TAR 23??

We wouldn't post it if there was. The rule is no info about the start until the racers are safely underway.

But you can spec over here:,
