Cindy and Ernie's Ep 3 Discussion!!

<< < (8/8)

maf:
In earlier seasons the 1 U-turn limit was motivated with the fact that teams only carried one courtesy-of photo. Now with the new digital U-turn signs that is no longer an issue. But the rule may still be there, we just don't know.

Also, even if the U-turn is blind, how hard is it to figure out who did what when teams meet up at the next airport?

Gary and Will could lie about using the second u-turn, since the only other team that saw it were eliminated.

But nobody saw them using the U-turn unless Catlin & Brittany told teams after they were eliminated. Besides it affected no one.

It could have been a non-elimination. Just because you do not have to put your picture there does not mean that you can be sure to remain anonymous. You just can't know.

But we digress. I think the more interesting question is if teams are still limited to one non-blind U-turn or not. Perhaps Ernie & Cindy can shed some light on that?

Cindy and Ernie are out of the country this week, and have sent their regrets at not being able to do the recaps this week. We'll look forward to welcoming them back before long!!
