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

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

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...

You must ask one of the first six eliminated teams from TAR18-current personally because inferences are sometimes way off. TAR17's ES was in Cancun and they didn't even touch Central or South America. There's basically no connection between Ghana, Norway, or Sweden that would make you determine Mexico as an ES.

EDIT: For the CD question, they aren't allowed to bring any items but their bags, clothes, prescripted meds, and travel documents. Besides, the camera and sound crew must record them while driving. Music just interferes with their conversations.

Usually, the first five. Yes, WRP often uses Mexico or Thailand, maybe because it's cheap and remote?  :funny:

TAR 18 according to a source in this forum I can't remember (peach or apskip?) was Ko Samui, Thailand and TAR 19's was in Phuket.

And THAT is what I call no ES-seasonal route correlation. ;)

Thing is sequesterville is always "out of the way" so people can't track them down, and they change it up all the time ( i think there is like 3-5 different spots they go to)

In the first leg of TAR23, the person who did not elect to do the first roadblock had to paraglide. What if this team member decided to quit the paragliding? What sort of penalty would the team receive, since that person was not the person who was performing the roadblock?

Well if the person did not want to do the paragliding, what other option is there than to bring the team down and take the penalty? It would be Mika all over again :stare

I have a question: did TAR even receive a 24th season? I only recall hearing about only one season being picked up for 2013-14 cycle unless I read something wrong.

My guess is that the team would receive the standard 4 hour penalty for failing to complete a roadblock.

I would guess that since the paragliding was part of the roadblock, it would be a 4-hour penalty.
