So I think I've discovered the BIGGEST
What If question EVER
What If...... Dana had completed the RB in Leg 1 of Season 16??
Ok, so at first this may not seem that major of a What If, but here's what I think could have happened!
Leg 1 - Had Dana chose to do the RB, they most likely would've survived, leading to Jody & Shannon being eliminated first.
With this in mind here's how I believe the rest of the race would play out and how future seasons would be affected
Leg 2 - Louie & Michael eliminated
Leg 3 - Monique & Shawne eliminated
Leg 4 - NEL
Leg 5 - Without Louie & Michael to U-Turn Joe & Heidi, they would have survived, with a Jordan & Jeff elimination.
Leg 6 - As Jordan & Jeff already gone, either Caite & Brent, or Joe Heidi due to Joe's knee injury. I would guess Joe & Heidi survive here, as Brent & Caite missed the Detour, leading to elimination.
Leg 7 - NEL
Leg 8 - Steve & Allie or Joe & Heidi eliminated due to Joe's injury.
Leg 9 - Without Brent & Caite, Carol & Brandy would not be U-Turned, and would survive. Joe & Heidi or Steve & Allie would be eliminated.
Leg 10 - With Louie & Michael already eliminated, Dan & Jordan would be NEL, and then be eliminated Leg 11.
Leg 12 - This would leave a final 3 of Cowboys, Dana & Adrian and Carol & Brandy.
The Cowboys would most likely go on to win.
Therefore would NOT
be invited back for Unfinished Business, and again for 24 All Stars, and people would remember them much more fondly with just a one season stint.
Without the Cowboys, Unfinished Business would have had another team return in their place and this could have changed everything about UB.
The same goes for 24 All Stars!
So there we have it, my mad, crazy What If question!!
