What if somebody had used the U-turn in Season 13 (assume both U-turns)
In Bolivia, I'd assume that the only possible U-Turn would've been Nick & Starr U-Turning Kelly & Christy, or Aja & Ty doing it for them. In this case, the girls would go home and Mark & Bill would live on.
Mark & Bill weren't the most athletic team, but they seemed to be a strong/decent team, so they might've been able to get to the Final 5 or 6, but probably not further.
As for the second U-Turn, which was unaired. If I remember correctly, this was on Leg 9?
If that's the case, I could only hazard a guess at Nick & Starr U-Turning Ken & Tina or Toni & Dallas just to try to get rid the stronger teams. However, given Toni & Dallas's passport error on Leg 10 (and since Leg 9 was a NEL) this U-Turn would not have been a crucial game-changing moment.
Let's take this (slightly lengthier scenario):
What if Lorena could just milk that goat and she and Jason finished in a much higher position on Leg 3, and then on Leg 4, Shana & Jennifer realised that the only team behind them at the Detour was TK & Rachel, and used the U-Turn on them?
It's pretty hard to say definitively, but how would you guys think the rest of the race would work out from this point?
Nathan and Jennifer VS Ron and Chris?
To answer my own question from before, I'd actually have thought that Lorena & Jason might've made the Final Three. They seemed a decent enough team, and their only problems on Legs 1-2 was navigating. However, the only self-driving on the rest of the race was Legs 5 and 7 (aside from the driving Roadblock on Leg 9) and on those legs, it would be quite difficult to get more lost than Shana & Jennifer and Kynt & Vyxsin respectively.
It's hard to judge a team who only raced 4 legs, but Lorena & Jason seemed stronger than the likes of Shana & Jennifer, Kynt & Vyxsin, Nicolas & Donald and maybe even Nathan & Jennifer.
Maybe I'm just being hopeful, but I would've thought they had the capabilities to give Nathan & Jennifer and Ron & Christina a run for their money!
What if Flo & Zach did not tell Ken & Gerard about the location of the Roadblock clue on Leg 11 in Vietnam, and thus Derek & Drew made the Final Three instead of Team Oh Brother? Do you think they could win?
