It led to Azaria & Hendekia's elim. if I remember correctly? :torche

Can a team use their EP on any task in the leg?

1. They had to switch to a later flight which had economic seats, putting them in last.
2. I doubt they can use it on a route info.  :funny:

Are teams no longer allowed to pay a taxi driver to follow them or kidnap locals in their vehicles to guide them?

I think only Charla & Mirna kidnapped locals, the rest were of their own free will.

Yes the are. Back in Season 17 when Jill & Thomas paid local taxi driver to lead them to the Pitstop, they recieved 30 minute penalty, making Chad & Stephanie pass them and be the first team to arrive.

We no longer have fern since Season 18 I believe  ???

My guess would be that, generally speaking, a team could use the Express Pass to avoid a route info task such as the Ford Challenge.  That said, I could imagine that certain of such tasks could be designated as ineligible within the additional info.  I can agree that the EP couldn't be used if a team simply couldn't puzzle out a destination clue.  (how would that work anyway? Would Phil suddenly appear to hand the team an engraved detailed map to the next destination?   :funny:)
We can put a man on the moon, so why can't we have a Fast Forward in every leg?

I suspect Tim and Marie have until the last team checks in on the fifth leg; but that's just a guess on my part.

I think this is a good guess.  Another guess is that Tim and Marie would not be allowed to check in to the pitstop while still in possession of the second EP.  We might actually find out what happens!

Yeah, but what can the exes do when arriving on the mat with the two EPs? Wait it out until last place like Zev & Justin? I don't think so. That would be a horrible rule for just a repetitive flank of cardboard even if a team is unbearable, annoying, or mean-spirited.

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

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.)

I was imagining a daring alliance :lol: , even if it consists of around 2 or 3 people only.

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.

You quit and receive a 4 hours penalty.

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:
