There may have also been a scheduled visit that was changed last minute.

Why has Melbourne only been visited once? (On TAR Norway 1)

Two visits on TAR Australia

Yeah, yeah, I know, but I'm taking about PROPER legs. (Okay then, twice. TAR Norway 1 and TAR Australia 3)

Are there going to be any more countries that get TAR?

You'll need to ask CBS and WRP.

If you ask me, Britain and South Africa should have their own! Or maybe the Amazing Race India! But that's neither here nor there :)

What versions are you talking about? If you're just asking about the US version, then it is only Dennis & Andrew (Season 3, leg 3) and Mark & Bopper (Season 20, leg 10).

Upon further investigation, no other situation like this has happened in any other version of The Amazing Race. So the answer to your question is, yes, it was only Dennis & Andrew and Mark & Bopper who met this grisly fate!

I have a question.

In TAR11, there are 2 consecutive NEL's, and at the time, the penalty was a 30 minute penalty at the next Pit Stop if you weren't first. What would've happened if Oswald & Danny made it to the Pit Stop before Eric & Danielle's penalty expired? Would their remaining penalty carry over to the Pit Start time or to the next Pit Stop?

I can't be 100% sure, but I don't think anyone can and logically I think it would've been applied to their departure time for the following leg. The other option you considered wouldn't really make sense, because it wasn't a KOR/ZHPS leg.

Zero Hour Pit Stop. When nobody gots eliminated, but the host pulls out the clue and tells them "you're still racing"

I wonder what would happen if there was an Intersection, but one team was medically removed from the race before it.

(I get the sneaking suspicion someone's asked this already...)

They'd probably adjust the intersection. ??? Either by taking it away, or by moving it to a different leg.

Possible situations about the intersection mostly remain a mystery, :gaah: and is only being speculated. :funny:

fwiw China Rush 2 saw Summer & Eachen quit on a leg that was allegedly meant to be an NEL with 8 teams, followed by an Intersection; whether it had anything to do with it or not the Intersection appeared later in the race.

(incidentally production somehow let them get away with U-Turning another team right before leaving  :funny:)

I was just watching TAR 19. Once thing boggles me. Why is the Sydney Opera House included in TAR19's opening sequence?
Maybe the absence of signs is a sign.

Who was the first team ever to pay a taxi to lead them somewhere while they drove?

Well, it was team in Season 1, when they had to self-drive but I can't think who it was.  :umn:

In episode 6, Frank had the taxi driver lead him to the pit stop at Sant' Agata Bolognese.

OK, well how about the second time then, since that one was part of a task.

That Sydney Opera House is from TAR18 sequence, they often recycle some sequence from previous seasons, therefore you'll see some of previous seasons' sequence.

There are flash images of spoiler locations interspersed with old pics in the Intros--we have fun decoding them!
