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:

That's interesting. Do you know this season's sequestorville?

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.

As Peach posted TAR22's sequesterville location is Italy and Capri is possibly the resort location.

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.

How does Phil know what goes on in the Leg? Does the camera crew alert him? (Ex: Phil will ask a team, "so, I heard you decided to use the U-turn" but HE WASN'T THERE!) How does he know these things???????

It's a combination of the camera crews and production staff that are at the locations for all clue markers and tasks, and the camera crews traveling with each team. The camera crews are unlikely to have radio contact, but they can tell production at the fixed locations out of earshot of the teams.

What happens when teams drop their bags while running to the pitstop? Do they go and retrieve after finishing the mat interviews? Does a crew member keep an eye on the bags for them?

I've heard that winners don't need to pay taxes if they choose to get the prize money 20 grands each year instead of getting the whole 1 million bucks once and for all. Then what if CBS collapses in 50 years?

The area in the vicinity of the check-in is under the control of production; so either the team members or the production assistants will retrieve their backpacks. (While Phil may interview teams on the mat, production will also film interviews afterwards at the pitstop hotel or lodging location. But the the backpacks are safe.

As far as I know, CBS pays the full million to the team (one half to each teammate) and after that, each team member is responsible for paying any income taxes (federal, most states, and some localities) on their share of the prize money, By the way, teams also have to declare and pay income taxes on any prizes they win during the Race. Because individual tax situations are different, it's not possible to state what percentage of the prize money goes to taxes; and some tax planning during that tax year may also reduce the amount of taxes that has to be paid.
Whether an annuity gets used is an individual post-race planning issue which is not done by CBS. I'm not comfortable speculating about how that could be done or whether there's any way to use annuities to reduce the tax burden. I am aware that annuities are available for winners of the multi-state or state-operated lotteries in the U.S. (they get to choose after they win if the want the adjusted lump sum with taxes withheld, or a 20 year annuity which adds up to the announced jackpot amount; but that doesn't apply to the US version of TAR. I also don't know how any of the regional versions deal with income or other taxes.
