We know from post-race interviews that Margie & Luke did not complete the Detour or Roadblock of Leg 5 because it was too late for them to perform any of the tasks.

But what if one of the other teams had lost their passport right before the Pit Stop? (Say some jerk robbed them) As seen with James & Abba, this would put this team in last place instead of Margie & Luke. But what about all the tasks they didn't do?

What would happen on this and the next leg?

I'm guessing that the team that lost their passports (let's say team XY) would be rejected at the pit stop and start looking for their passports. Margie & Luke (having not done any of the tasks), would probably be dealt with penalties (because they can't do any of the tasks due to Hours of Operation and waiting for them to start the next day would be more unhelpful).

Margie & Luke would be in 7th place (albeit hours and hours behind), and team XY would probably be called back to the pit stop, check in last and be eliminated. Margie & Luke would start the next leg (probably as the other teams were already heading to the pit stop), and check in last again, but be saved by the non-elimination. Then they'll head off to Rome and god knows what happened next.

Ah, darn it for spoilers that technically don't break the rules :C  (I don't watch the 'next time' previews)

So you're thinking penalties for Margie & Luke? But remember that in S23, half the teams could not perform the zipline in Santiago due to HoO, but I don't believe they got penalties.

Had a team lost their passport I think Margie & Luke would of been able to do the tasks as it was still daylight when they got to the Detour and in TARAus1 Trendy Connections was open for the night time Roadblock so they might of been able to do them had another team lost their passport.

They interviewed that they could not do the tasks because of "Logistics"

I am pretty sure all the other teams had already checked in by the time Margie & Luke arrived at the detour. So this was never an issue.

I was thinking it's going to be similar to Josh & Brent's penalty at the Synchronize Detour in Russia. They got 4 hours for not being able to finish the Detour, and maybe it's going to be the same if Margie & Luke can't even start due to HoO. And maybe a 3 hour penalty for a Roadblock.

It's a possibility, perhaps the editing made things look different. ???

This one's not really possible to answer since back in TAR11 when teams toured around Warsaw, Mirna encountered people who didn't understand English while other teams luckily found locals who spoke slightly or fluently. It suggests positions could change left and right without being at tasks due to the language barrier. Plus, take account of possibly being lost "forever" and even rarer cases of a car malfunction.

1)If TAR Producer didn't allow any teams to complete more than two seasons, who would be replace Jet & Cord, Herbert & Nathaniel and Mergie & Luke in place of All Stars 2 and who would replace Bopper & Mark when mallory ervin couldn't complete
I want Chester & Ephraim, James & Abba and Bill & Cathi (or Abbie & Ryan) returned
2)if Chester & Ephraim got an flight which landed in Portugal at 10:00 AM along with The Beards and the oklahoma but leg 3 swung to NEL/KOR leg and leg 4 became elimination leg, who would be U-turned in leg 5
in the case of baseball wives went home in Norway, who would be U-turned in leg 8
3)If the twin doctors choose take the trunk first therefore Pwinnie went home in Bora Bora 2, who would be U-turned in Vietnam and who boot in Botswana 2

3)If the twin doctors choose take the trunk first therefore Pwinnie went home in Bora Bora 2, who would be U-turned in Vietnam and who boot in Botswana 2

1.) That'd depend... ???

2.) Bunnies would go home in F9. If ChesEph got lost in Poland, and if they fall to the back of the pack, they're done. If not, Brandam will still go home in F8. Now since I think ChesEph will survive, the F7 depends on their singing talent if they have any. They will survive F6 and Ice Girls go home. ER Docs go home in Indo. F4... it depends on the Afghanimals. So even if ChesEph got eliminated in 9th (and in a tragic way), I don't think they have a chance to win the race.

3.)If Pwinnie go home in Bora Bora, JJ go home with EP in Indo. For the Vietnam W-turn, YouTube will arrive at the W-turn first (since Pwinnie arrived at the W-turn first), so I think someone who doesn't know that YouTube passed the W-turn, will waste their U-turn power on YouTube. The 2nd U-turn slot is most likely for Roller Derby Moms, but it could also be skipped. There's a chance that the whole W-turn becomes wasted. In Botswana 2, it depends on Twin Docs' navigation skills. If they survive, Maxie is out in F7. Chynona will most likely finish in the F6. YouTube will still be eliminated with the W-turn in the F5. CaroJen go home in F4. I don't think Twin Docs could win this whole thing, but I think they have a chance of messing up in the Asain or African legs, so they might not make it past F7.

If The (Blind) Double U-Turn were introduced in TAR 16 leg 5 and leg 9, who would be U-turned in second slots and what happened for the entire race?
if Jet & Cord won TAR 16, who should be called back to UB

First Question: Joe & Heidi would MOST LIKELY U-Turn Jordan/Jeff because they know that they're behind them. Jordan and Jeff most likely get eliminated in Leg 5. Due to being so far behind, Joe & Heidi would get eliminated in Leg 6. In Leg 9, Carol and Brandy would U-Turn Jet and Cord, eliminating the Cowboys. Louie and Michael would get eliminated in Shanghai. F3 would be Carol & Brandy, Brent and Caite, and Dan and Jordan. Dan and Jordan would still win.

If Jet and Cord won TAR16, I think that Toni and Dallas would get called back to UB and Brandon and Adam would get called back to All-Stars

If it has to be from TAR 16, then I want Brent & Caite. But, I guess lesbian couple will be called back.

I felt Joe & Heidi were the most deserving team to return for UB, because they were doing great and then the U-Turn happened and that was it for them.
As well as being a much more likeable team than the lesbians, even with Joe's over cockiness.

:hearts: Jody & Shannon, hands down, would have come back! :hearts: If the cow hadn't thrown a temper tantrum and kicked Jody in the head, they would have gotten 9th in the second Chile leg and changed the face of the race by eliminating the detectives.

But on a realer note, I think Ellen Wannabes (Carol & Brandy) would have returned? I really don't know, since they were strongly disliked by viewers during TAR16's airing and Toni & Dallas don't seem likely due to so many parent/child teams that season.

1.What if Jason & Amy U-Turn Tim & Marie?
2.What if Caroline & Jennifer chose Titanic detour in Leg 11?
3.What if Joey & Meghan lost to oustskirts of town in Leg 8 and get too far from town and got stranded in a street miles away from border of town?
4.What if Nicky & Kim didn't switch Detour in Leg 4?
Our team is not our feminine is not my care and I only care about female team to win or final 3!

1. If its the Leg 8 U-Turn, I think that Afghanimals would be 3rd, Ice Queens 4th, Tim and Marie 5th, Nicky & Kim Last.
2. If Caroline and Jen did the Titanic Detour, they would still be eliminated.
3. Joey & Meghan eliminated 6th, Chuck & Wynona eliminated 5th. Country eliminated 4th. No change in the Final Result.
4. Nicky and Kim DIDN'T switch Detours in Leg 4. They just chose the longer Detour.

Maybe Roif456 means the switch in Leg8? If they didn't do the food prepare choice, which really time-consuming, they might arrive at the U-turn board earlier than Tim&Marie and can even U-turn Ice girl for safety?

Here's a BIG what if?

What if the routes for seasons 22 and 23 were swapped? By this I mean that the cast for season 22 would compete on the route from season 23, and vice versa. What would be the placings in each season? Who would be asked onto all-stars?

That's nearly impossible to tell since TAR22 has that sandcastle luck RB (anyone on TAR23 could be eliminated first, even the exes because teams were generally close together in Bora Bora) and TAR23's premiere placement order depended who got the earlier flight into Iquique from Santa Clarita via L.A.

But what if one of the other teams had lost their passport right before the Pit Stop? (Say some jerk robbed them) As seen with James & Abba, this would put this team in last place instead of Margie & Luke. But what about all the tasks they didn't do?

What would happen on this and the next leg?
another question arose, in leg 3 of TAR 23 in Portugal if one of eight team had lost their passport before the pitstop, Would NFL have a chance to complete any task?
