Do the teams get to keep the papers of the detour, roadblock, route info, etc? Or they have to throw them?

All clues are supposed to be handed in at the mat....

If a team has 2 EPs, are they allowed to NOT give it away and just let it expire on the 4th/5th leg?

No, they have to. They can choose not to use theirs but if they don't give the second one away, I'm sure they can't check-in or receive a penalty, or maybe have to wait by the mat for another team to arrive, hand them the pass, before they can check-in. That will reduce their choice on who gets the Express Pass though, and also, they will be delayed for their Pit-start next next.

What's on my mind is whether or not perhaps, Tim and Marie can stick the Express Pass on perhaps... let's say the U-TURN board and write a note saying that the Express Pass is for a particular team. I know we have seen seasons where a last team had all their money taken away from them on a NEL, and teams on the following leg left money in the cluebox at the start of the next leg of the race. Can't remember which season... is it Season 7 where teams left money for Meredith and Gretchen except for Rob and Amber?

What will happen if more than 1 team received a 24-hour penalty? (Almost impossible example: 5 teams have an alliance that they'd all buy 1st class tickets, because the next flight leaves more than 12 hours after the 1st one.)

In the Intro, Phil says you MUST give EP away by the end of the fifth leg...

Production will stop them at all cost. It must also be in the rules somewhere.

This has never been encountered by any teams in the US series yet: What's the time penalty (U.S. series) for helping his/her teammate complete a roadblock.

Most likely A) since never have I heard them say married or engaged.

Is it just me or have there been other seasons where it has gone so long without a non-elimination leg?  :gaah:

TAR3 & 4 didn't have a non-elimination Leg until Leg 8.

If both U-turn and FF appear in the same leg, can a U-Turned team tries to finish the FF instead after seeing the picture on the U-Turn board? If they finish the FF does that mean they don't need to complete both detours?

Maybe in recent seasons, if you already chose NOT to do the FF, you can't change that decision..

If a team wins a Fast Forward Pass, they are entitled to bypass all other tasks on the leg, and go directly to the pit stop.
If they have done some tasks, then they can skip all remaining tasks and go directly to the pit stop. (My recollection is that in some of the early seasons, a FF might not be provided at the last stop in country A, but would be included in the clue envelope at the first clue box in country B. So that is where this sentence comes from.)
In the case you ask about, the power of the fast forward overcomes the U-Turn, and the U-Turn would be treated as if the team had already passed that point in the leg when a later team attempts to U-Turn them.) So yes, the team doesn't need to complete any remaining tasks before the pit stop.
The teams keep the FF clue with then through the leg, the team can decide to go for a FF after reaching the detour, and IIRC, this did happen in some of the early seasons.

Wow! :faint: I didn't know that teams are allowed to go back for the ff.

Does anybody know why TAR decided to have the traditional 11-team race instead of the 12-team one? ??? I like seeing more teams compete. :pity The more the merrier.
