Andrew is 190 lbs, about 86 kg, I wonder what was the maximum weight?

They're identical twins, what can the difference be? :lol:

I've never heard of such an instruction on the first roadblock of the Race. I had noticed something as a Note on the clue, but I hadn't had a chance to replay the episode and freeze-frame that to see what it said.
I haven't seen anything to explain that curious restriction either, and I'd rather not guess. Was there anything on the insider videos about this?

Edited to add: I haven't seen anyone mention this yet, but it appears the show is going to continue to not have a sign at the pit stop mat, nor likely to see traditional clue boxes based on this episode. It wouldn't surprise me if we don't even see one traditional clue box this time out.

There was a traditional clue box at the airport.

I think it might be hight issues with the skydiving task.

If it was height issues, they wouldn't need to exclude one twin at the expense of another. I'd say there might be a weight requirement, but how that would allow for the Guidos to complete it without issue I don't know.

Maybe it's to ensure that everyone doing the task can drive out to their partner (what with the car being stick)? I think Andrew was doing the driving for his team the whole leg.

I doubt it was related to driving a stick-shift car because Danny said (and showed) that he could not drive a stick-shift.  I'm confident our crew will get to the answer one of these days.

What about a medical condition?

I don't know if any of them have one, but it's a viable reason for being excluded from a skydiving task

I don't know where I should post this, but I created a graph (If you guys don't already have one) showing positions of the racers throughout the leg.

Or, what if it's because he's a professional athlete.  I know he's not on the level of let's say a top-tier NFL player, but many, if not most, professional athletes have clauses in the their contract that prohibit them taking part in "risky" physical activities.

That's a connection that makes some sense because Ralph is an MMA fighter.

I think Ralph's size is the limiting factor here. Many skydiving sites have height and weight restrictions, which could easily apply here.

Thanks, Jimmer  :jam:. Since yakc seems to be taking this season off, your efforts are appreciated.
Looking at the chart, it would seem the flights were more important than the tasks: if a team arrived on the first or second plane, then they stayed with that bracket. Strange, then, that we didn't see any driving/ticket drama on the way to LAX. At least one team (Kentucky) took Hwy 154 over the mountains, which is not the obvious choice. And most teams had no trouble finding SB Argentina. So everybody was probably given specific driving directions for that leg.

I would guess that the instructions said that SB was located along highway 68 south of Salta. And that is pretty much all you need to know. There are just two roads leaving the south part of Salta and 68 is one of them. SB is the right on this road, approx 140km south of Salta.

The point here is that if you know SB is on R68 then it is easy to find, otherwise it would probably have been very hard since it is just a couple of houses which probably not many know about.
