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:

Leg 4 was a KOR and a KOR is a NEL.

Technically a TBC doesn't eliminate a team...  :snics:

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.

Where did the team go after they got eliminated in the newer season?
Previously they have Elimination Station but it stopped until season 17, i don't know when Eliminatin Station started. I only found season 14-17 elimination station on youtube

And what about the eliminated team before Elimination Station?

Did they just go home?

Another question, since TAR usually have a (and sometimes a long) self drive. Are they allowed to bring CD? Could be a mixtape or an album of an artist or whatever for them listening to music. A long drive could get tiring and boring right, so why not?
If not bringing their own CD, are they allowed to listen to the radio or not?

There has always been a place for the eliminated teams, but only  few seasons were shown to us. I miss that, it was such a good way for us to get to know eliminated teams a bit better...
