In season 17 Connor perform the first 4 roadblocks and then they were eliminated. :tup:
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.

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.

Actually its "WorldRace Productions" or so it appears when they apply for permits and so forth, and its also the way its used on the closing credit card at the end of each episode.

In the Jamaica leg in TAR7, there was a task in between the limbo Road Block and the rafting Detour. It involved searching a school for a clue while the children were chanting "hot or cold", and got edited out of the two-hour episode, but was included in international broadcasts where the two legs aired separately (as in the original episode the first leg ran short but the second leg ran long). So my question, for the American fans, is: Was that task included in any form on the DVD?

It may be included, but due to the weird way deleted scenes are on there, I've never taken the time to watch them (you have to press a button when a symbol pops up in the middle of an episode where the scene would go). And I don't have any of my DVDs with me right now, so I can't check.


So yeah, it might be on there, but it isn't part of the episode.

I've been wondering about one thing related to spoilers. I know that many shows including The Amazing Race require local people to whom the contestants resort to sign a secrecy contract which bans their spreading spoilers. If they don't want to sign, their faces will be blurred on the show. But if those people who didn't sign spread spoilers before the show airs, is it against the law and could the crew sue them?

I ask this question because a similar thing has happened to The Voice of China. Due to the fact that most Chinese people don't want to leak their personal information, the crew did not ask audiences in the live recording locale to sign the secrecy contract. The result is that spoilers are all over the Internet now.

I don't know how to answer that. The closest I've been to reality TV show filming is when I crashed into the filming of Survivor. However the contestants did not have a cameraman with them.

No, the agreement that is signed by someone who is filmed allows CBS to use the footage on TV. It has nothing to do with spoilers.

NDA agreements are signed by those who WORK on or for the show...and yes, those are legally binding.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post it, but anyway. Before you get your hopes up, this was the SWEDISH version of Survivor. I was 4 or 5 when this happened.. I think it was between 2000-2002. We were expats from Australia living in Malaysia at the time, and one day we decided to take a spontaneous boat trip off the east coast to an island called Rawa. On the way we stopped at another island to just chill out (I'm not sure what it was called). We were all just playing on the beach and these two guys saw us and came up to us and explained they were on the show and we needed to get off the island or the crew would get angry. Before we left them, they asked for a few provisions from us (i.e. grapes, sandwiches, cigarettes, lighters) which we gave them. We left the island and that was it. I don't really remember it because
1. I was so young
2. I've never watched any edition of Survivor
I DO have a printed photo in my scrapbook of the two guys, maybe someone could tell me who they are and what season, because I actually wouldn't mind knowing :lol: Here it is:

ETA: After a bit of research, I believe the contestant on the left is Tommy Jensen from Expedition Robinson 2001
