The Amazing Race: What If

<< < (211/251) > >>

GB:
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.

SamualDude:
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.

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