Here are the others (please fill in the gaps everyone!):

Season 1, Leg 1 (Zambia): Roadblock that involved cooking an ostrich egg. Both team members then had to eat it.
Season 5, Leg 8 (Dubai): Roadblock that involved buying nuts from a market and delivering them to a ship.
Season 5, Leg 13 (Canada): Task that involved choosing to buy either a jacket or gloves for use in the rest of the leg.
Season 5, Leg 13 (Canada): Roadblock that involved building a teepee outside Banff Springs Hotel.
Season 10, Leg 4 (Vietnam): Yield at the Hydrofoil Harbor was unaired, presumably due to no one using it.
Season 10, Leg 7 (Mauritius): Roadblock was present, but unknown.
Season 11, Leg 7 (Poland): Roadblock involved rowing into the reflecting pool in the middle of the palace. Other details are not known.
Season 12, Leg 5 (Lithuania): Fast Forward was present at Trakai Island Castle, but was unused.
Season 13, Leg 3 (Bolivia): Task at Mercado Rodrigues, details unknown.
Season 14, Leg 7 (Thailand): Fast Forward involved buying items for a local orphanage, but was not taken.
Season 14, Leg 9 (China): Task involved climbing the Peak of the Luminous Moon and playing the 'Drums of Life'.
Season 14, Leg 10 (China): Jaime & Cara won jetskis for coming 1st at the midpoint, but this was not mentioned on air.
Season 15, Leg 4 (Cambodia): The first prize was motorcycles and was awarded to Zev & Justin before they realised they were missing their passports.
Season 15, Leg 11 (Czech Republic): Brian & Erika incurred a 30 minute penalty for writing down the letters during the Roadblock. This did not affect their placement.

Cocoa,

I believe I can help, although have a few different interpretations of what should go in this list with what you have shown above. I went back to AR1 and found a lot of unused/unaired tasks in the early seasons, almost all Fast Forwards:

AR1, ep. 4 FF
AR1, ep. 6 FF
AR1, ep. 10 FF
AR3, ep. 8 FF
AR4, ep. 8 FF
AR5, ep. 8 ROADBLOCK buying nuts and deliver to ship
AR5, ep. 8 FF
AR5, ep. 13 ROADBLOCK building tepee in Banff
AR8, ep. 6 FF

You and Dom El have done a decent job from AR10 forward, so I will not repeat that. However, I ask you both to reconsider if an overnight stay at in the Green Room in Tokyo, in Wulff's Castle, in the Bukit Indah Hotel really constitute "unused and unaired" or are just what normally happens for most overnight stays (they are unused but almost always unaired since World Race Productions stopped doing "eat, sleep, mingle"). Core Pacific Mall route marker was used by the one team that had to do their SpeedBump there.

Season 10, Leg 7 (Mauritius): Roadblock was present, but unknown.

This was fully explained somewhere in the threads here, Lyn kindly gave us all the details.

That was something from their intro I believe, not a race task...

Wikipedia has an U-Turn in Sweden in TAR15, but I don't know if it's true... I havent seen it mentioned anywhere else...

and, are you including portions of tasks also not seen?? For example, in the Roadblock in Taiwan they had to buy a phone card or get a local to lend them their phone card so they can use the payphone and call Confucious.

There was also an unaired Yield on Episode 1 of Season 8, right? Before they did the river task.

^Yeah, I'm pretty sure I've heard something about that.

Also, in TAR 5 there was an unaired Yield on every leg but one.

How about this one from Season 11? It is from the Macau leg (Leg 11), but this has not been featured in the telecast. When does this task come in the picture?  :)

I've heard rumors of a U-Turn after the detour in TAR 17, ep. 7. This was said because the Detours were so close together and both were decently difficult. But these are only rumors.

In season 11, leg 13 they had to jump off of a cliff and also they had to visit the house of the Grateful Death or something like that..

Oh you have them already..gotta pay more attention

But i also remember in season 2 when they used the snow cat, supposedly it was part of a detour but since none of the teams chose the other option it was edited as a simple task.

The fish task happened at the Ponte Cais Plaza on Coloane, where teams had to search the area for trays of dried fish, then hang them out to dry. It was raining, so by the end of the task all the fish got wet and had to be paid for by production...

I remember the TAR 1 Rome Fast Forward to be a search for the headquarters of the Knights of Malta on Aventine Hill, the gate of which had a keyhole that looked out towards the dome of St Peter. Tunisia had a Fast Forward involving a boat, but I don't think I read any more information about it.

But I would still have liked to see that task in the final cut...

Neobie,

The AR1 ep. 4 unaired/unused FAST FORWARD was a boat task from Tunis to Sidi Bou Said.

The AR1 ep. 6 one was indeed "Find the key to the arms of St. Peter's."

Neobie,

As your reference states, the Basilica of St. Peter's Cathedral is in the shape of a key. That means either that the FAST FORWARD would be hidden outside it (I consider this most likely) or inside it (with a capacity of 10,000 people it would take a while to search the inside space and I doubt that the Catholic hierarchy would have approved that).

Yes, body building was a Detour, as was the TinTin task. Because it was supposedly confusingly worded and no one could figure out how difficult it might be or the distances involved, the TinTin detour was not chosen.

Since it was a product placement, the TinTin Detour was changed by production to a Route Info...and everyone had to do it. Early. :lol:

That's pretty interesting about Tintin but is that fact? i find it hard to think that some of the teams who seemed uncomfortable with the speedo still did the bodybuilding...
regardless i think tintin was one of the better product placement tasks, had the movie not been made or whatever that task would have still been 100% culturally relevant. what would the task have been named i wonder... bodybuilding posedown or comicbook showdown? not really a showdown though...

is there a thread for tasks that i can pretend happened and just went unaired? such as collecting all of maria's favourite things before checking in at the villa trapp!! haha what an underused landmark >< or a mail sorting switchback roadblock for tar18
