Short and to the point... Well that's no fun!
I can already answer this one!
We have the Express Pass
as an accepted and appreciated and sought after feature of TAR. So that's not going away.
At the end of the first leg, what would be even better than winning one?
Well? Winning two Express Passes
But that may be just too simple. And I have my reasons. Let there be two EPs with the understanding that the second one has to be shared with another Team
. Simple! Powerful! Adds drama too. TPTB probably got it from one of mutlitude of fantasy games going on allover. Can somebody check?
The reason I can bring this up and speculate it with high confidence comes from the spoiler information we have on Dave & Conner
. Here's my guess: Dave does not actually hurt his Achilles Tendon. He claims to have sustained the injury in order to garner sympathy from the other Teams. In particular, sympathy from the Team that wins two Express Passes on the first leg. So the EP is handed over, the ankle magically heals
, and Dave & Conner are launched into a very advantageous position in the game. One which may very well carry them to the final three.
